CASH MONEY Fantasy Football Start’em Sit’em and Sleeper Picks Week 8

Before we get to this weeks picks, I just want to take a moment to thank you for reading the Fantasy Football Goat. This Wednesday the blog reached the 500 subscriber mark. Thanks again.

Now, back to business.

There are some pretty prominent fantasy players who are on a bye this week. Studs like Adrian Peterson, Brandon Marshall and Greg Jennings will be at home watching the games just like you and I (except with much bigger TV’s and in much bigger pads). If you are one of the unlucky owners you faces a week without one of these three, good luck.

Now lets take a look at a few players who will be performing – or at least trying to – this Sunday.

Start em if you got em

Thomas Jones RB (NYJ) – He has been fairly hot as of late; 159 yard rushing performances against Oakland last week and 3 touchdowns the week before. This week he gets to play a Chiefs team that is dead last defending the run and doesn’t have any offense to keep him off the field. Getting the yardage and the scores shouldn’t be a problem for him this week. Look for 125 and 2 touchdowns. Continue reading

Bonus Fantasy Football Start’em Sit’em and Sleeper Picks Week 7

With fantasy regulars like Kurt Warner, Donovan McNabb, Micheal Turner and the Eagles defense on vacation this week, many of you are looking for adequate replacements this week. Lucky for you, I have looked high, low and beneath every rock I can find to offer you a few suitable replacements.

Here is what I have.

Start em if you got em

Matt Schaub QB (HOU) – Schaub and the Texans offense are really starting to heat up. Over the past four week the Texans have scored – with or without Matt – an average of 27+ points per game. Funny, but – outside of the Vikings making them look better than they are last week – that is pretty much the same amount of points the lowly Lions are giving up on a weekly basis. Hmmm…I wonder what that means?

Look for Matt and company to get their groove on this weekend at home against Detroit. Look for 300 yards and 2+ touchdowns.

Fantasy Football Start’em Sit’em and Sleepers for Week 3

What a wild and crazy week of games.  There were eight quarterbacks throwing for over 300 yards last weekend and Monday nights score fest provided a ton of drama in leagues everywhere. Hopefully you were the benefactor of all of the scoring.

Looking ahead to this weekend, there are a few more potential score fests and my first pick should be in line for another high scoring fantasy performance.

Start em if you got em

Jay Cutler QB (DEN) – The man is a bona-fide fantasy stud. He has 650 yards and 6 touchdowns in the first two weeks. That success should continue when the Broncos welcome the Saints to Mile High (talk about a shootout). The Saints were shaky in the secondary to begin with and now they have a ton of injuries to deal with. If Jason Campbell can get 300+ yards on them, there is no reason Cutler can’t get 300+ and throw for 2+ touchdowns. From this point on there is no reason – other than a bye or injury – that you should ever take him out of your line-up. Continue reading
