From the desk of the The Bad Guy:
Prediction – 220 Yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, 1 Fumble Lost (15 pts)
QB Matt Schaub (Texans): If you are ever going to give Mr. Schaub a shot to start for your team, this is the week to get him in your lineup. He has thrown for over 300 yards in each of his last two games, and we should see this 300 + yard trend continue against the Lions’ 30th ranked pass defense.
Prediction – 320 yards, 2 TDs, 2 INT (20 pts)
RB Deangelo Williams/Jonathan Stewart (Panthers): After a disappointing Week 6 loss at Tampa Bay where Williams and Stewart were held to a dismal 39 combined rushing yards, look for these young studs to bounce back strong and put together very nice all-around efforts against a D allowing more than 100 rush yards per game. Carolina will look to control the clock and run all over New Orleans, keeping Drew Brees and co. off the field and making sure the Saints DONT Go Marching In (the end zone). Get these guys in your lineup in what is certain to be a high scoring affair – they should be as money as Deangelo’s bling.
Prediction – Williams – 70 Yards, 1 Rush TD, 3 Rec, 25 yds (15.5 pts)
Stewart – 70 Yards, 1 Rush TD (13 pts)
RB Ryan Grant (Packers): Last week’s call to start the Baltimore RB duo against the Colts didn’t go too well, but I’m going to give Ryan Grant a shot to show that I was right about the Indi rush D. The Green Bay running back has struggled so far this season, averaging a very mediocre 3.4 yards per carry and failing to find in the end zone in his first 6 games, but look for him to get things going against a Colts defense allowing more than 160 rush yards per game. Grant ran the ball a career high 33 times last week at
Prediction – 120 Yards, 1 TD, 2 Rec, 10 yds (19 pts)
WR Torry Holt (Rams): Some of you may say that Holt is a fantasy stud and is an obvious every week starter, but this seven time Pro Bowl WR has been borderline horrible up to this point (and for your sake I hope you haven’t been starting him). Holt has been averaging 4 catches and 42 yards per game in 2008, numbers no where near what you thought you would be getting when you drafted him in the 3rd or 4th rounds of your drafts. Throw out everything you have seen up to this point though - Holt will go off in Week 7 against
Prediction – 8 Rec, 115 Yards, 1 TD (17.5 pts)
WR Kevin Walter (Texans): My love for
Prediction – 5 Rec, 80 Yards, 1 TD (14 pts)
