    Guest Post: Week 11 QB Fantasy Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by our new guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Start:

    1. Donovan McNabb vs. Cincinnati. These are the types of games that #5 relishes. No pressure, no problem. The Eagles, still fuming from their 36-31 loss to the Giants, will look to come out and put a hurtin’ on the Bengals. And since the Bengals can’t stop anyone on the ground or through the air, look for McNabb and his receivers – in particular DeSean Jackson – to do some real damage with the deep ball. 250+ yards and two, possibly three TDs.

    2. Peyton Manning vs. Houston. Not sure exactly what it is, but something just isn’t right with Indy’s running game this season. I’m not basing that statement off last week’s game, as no one runs well on Pittsburgh, but the Colts have yet to have a dominating effort on the ground in ‘08. This is making fantasy owners happy, though, as it’s forcing Peyton to do more with his arm. If Joe Flacco just lit up Houston this past weekend, then it’s scary to think what Peyton will do. 250+ yards and three TDs. (More …)

      Kurt Warner vs. the 31st ranked Seattle Seahawks pass defense doesn’t even get an honorable mention?

      Nuts.

      Warner has been my top play for nearly every week this season. It’s been between Warner and Brees for the top spot. This week I thought I’d mix it up but yes, feel free to insert Warner into 1a.

    Guest Post: Adrian Peterson: 2nd Half Fantasy Star? 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    A Peterson%252Bweek%252B9Coming into the season, the expectations for Adrian Peterson were through the roof. After an extremely impressive rookie season, one in which he broke the NFL rushing record for a game with 296 yards vs. the San Diego Chargers, there was a lot of talk about 2,000 yards in 2008. The reasoning behind this train of thought was that last year, at the midway point, he had already eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark and if not for an injury, which threw off his momentum and kept him out for two games, he might have done it then.

    Fast forward to the midway point of 2008 and it’s a very different story. He’s still one of the elite backs in the game (823 yards, 6 TDs), but circumstances surrounding him have changed and they haven’t necessarily been for the better. (More …)

    Guest Post: Week 10 Defense/Special Teams Fantasy Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by our new guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101

    Must Starts:

    1127132157 49241. Carolina Panthers vs. Oakland Raiders. After last week’s 77-yard output by the Oakland Raiders’ offense can there even be a discussion as to who is the top pick this week? Look for the Panthers to get a commanding lead early and then get after QB JaMarcus Russell. We see Carolina keeping Oakland to under 10 points and racking up a few sacks and turnovers in the process. Top Defensive play.

    2. Tennessee Titans vs. Chicago Bears. If Orton were playing, Tennessee wouldn’t be so high on our list, but with Grossman expected to line up behind center, the Titans are a very attractive pick this week. With the return of a healthy DE Vanden Bosch, we like Tennessee to get back to its pressure ways and force Rex Grossman, who is no stranger to mistakes, into a few turnovers and sacks. A very strong fantasy start. (More …)

    Guest Post: Week 10 QB Fantasy Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by our new guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101. We’re happy to welcome Josh as a guest blogger – he definitely knows his fantasy football. -Matt and Brandon

    Must Starts:

    1006156d 1cf6 44e7 865a 617853b3ffbd Thumbnail1. Kurt Warner vs. San Francisco. Most people around the NFL know how good Warner and this offense is, but this Monday, when the 49ers come to town, the entire country will find out on a national stage. Warner has been lighting it up through the air of late and we see that trend continuing this week back in the desert. While the Niners are pretty strong against the run, they have trouble vs. the pass, and with Boldin and Fitzgerald lining up on the outside against Clements and Harris, look for Arizona to exploit these mismatches all night long. Warner will eclipse the 300-yard mark for the third consecutive game and throw for at least two TDs. (More …)

      How effective do you think Bulger can be without SJax helping move the ball down the field? I have Donnie Avery on my team so the fact that SJax is out makes me worry about the passing game.

    • Josh 1:40 am on November 7, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I think Bulger will be all right in this one. Not having SJax puts a little more pressure on him, but back-ups RB Pitman/Gado can be effective and I think the Jets’ secondary is one of its weaker points. So while you shouldn’t expect a ridiculous day from Bulger on Sunday, over 200 yards a few scores seems definitely in order. Also, Avery’s their only home run threat (and he did very well vs. New England in another gmae S Jax was out), so this bodes well for the play action. Do you have any other options to choose from? Rookie wide outs are sometimes difficult to predict.

      Someone help me should I start Matt Ryan vs Saints
      Dmcnab vs new york?

    • Josh 11:40 am on November 7, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I’d say Ryan. I don’t usually endorse rookie QBs over veterans, but remember, Giants’ DC Spagnuola was with the Eagles for eight years and knows McNabb’s strengths and weaknesses very well. In their game last December, when Westbrook played, the Giants held Philly to 13 points and this year’s version is playing better than at any point then. Also, the Saints have given up 30 and 32 points in their last two games respectively.

      @The Don: Go with Matt Ryan for sure. Ryan has been solid all year…and so has the New York Giants pass rush. The same can not be said for the Saints pass defense.
