Holy freakin crap what a busy week. How’s yours? Hopefully you are a little more relaxed than yours truly. Anyway, I don’t have time for my usual full slate of picks this week but I will throw a few out there for you. Check them out.
Start em if you got em…
Jerricho Cotchery WR (NYJ) – As bad as Tennessee has been getting ripped up this year there is no reason to believe the Jets won’t do otherwise. Also, Cotchery has quietly done a very solid job this year. He is sitting at number nine in the league in receiving. If you can find a way to get him in as a WR2 I say go for it. Look for 7-100+ and a TD.
Sit em if you got em…
Ben Roethlisberger QB (PIT) – I think it is time to start respecting the Cinci defense. They have been very tough since the end of the season last year and are getting to the QB often. Big Ben has a knack for not getting sacked but I just get the feeling his bad o-line and lack of a running game is gonna catch up with him. If you have a QB with a better match up I would look in that direction. I know this won’t be popular – especially with the pesky Steeler nation – but I call them like I see them. He might get around 225 and maybe throw one TD .
Sleepers: Don’t be surprised if…
…Mike Sims-Walker WR (JAX) goes for 100 and a touchdown or two this week against Houston. The Jag’s will be forced to keep up with the high powered Texans offense and the Texans defense won’t do much to keep them from doing so.
… Tory Holt WR (JAX) reminds us of why he was such an integral part of the greatest show on turf back in the day. Look for similar number – for similar reasons – as his teammate above.
