We are now roughly a quarter of the way through the fantasy football league season. Chaos is looming as a reminder that eight of the ten teams make the playoffs. Here’s an update of the standings:
I still question why Noah has an all Dallas team, but whatever works for him is good I guess…
More importantly this is a big week in fantasy football. There’s a common scenario in which many teams are 2-2 and would love a victory to put them over the .500 mark, so with that being said, here’s three people I believe are worth starting, even though they may be borderline plays.
The Chicago Bears Receiver is not off to the best start in fantasy, but I think this is the week he finally breaks through for a good game. You saw flashes last week that the connection with him and his rookie QB, Justin Fields, was improving on every drive. With David Montgomery out, look for even more of the game-plan to be evolved around Robinson.
With Mccaffery out for another week, Chubba will be in line for another bulk of the carries. He is averaging about 4.5 yards in his two starts without reaching the end zone. This is a game where I believe he will break through into the back of the end zone as he is going against a sub-par Eagles rush defense. Even if he doesn’t score, he will still gain a lot of yards.
With the majority of the weapons being out for the Falcons in the London game. People will have to step up. This includes RB, Mike Davis. The Falcons will likely use Patterson more as a receiver with both Calvin Ridley and Russel Gage being out. Davis will also have an expanded role now in the passing game with the limitations the Falcons have on the offensive side. Look for Davis to step up against the Jets.
With that being said, enjoy the lovely day of football all day, starting with the morning football game and good luck this week in fantasy!
