HERE ARE THE RULES: Jason and I will each pick four players every week: one quarterback, one running back, one wide receiver, and one tight end. The four players they decide upon may not be used again by their respective owner for the remainder of the season. Using Yahoo!’s fantasy scoring system, we will declare the winner as the one having the most fantasy points each week, and the winner for the season being the one with the most weekly victories. In the event of a tie, we will fight to the death.
QB: Peyton Manning (Colts) – An obvious choice. The big news here is that Jason can’t use Peyton again this season.
RB: Frank Gore (49ers) – Always a solid play. St. Louis is better than people think, though. Against the run, their defense is 8th in the league. On the plus side, San Fran still has no QB, so they have no choice but to pound the ball with Gore.
WR: DeSean Jackson (Eagles) – As Jason noted on the podcast, Jackson has a potentially tough matchup this week, vs the Redskins and DeAngelo Hall. This type of game lends itself toward the boom or bust picks, though, and that’s Jackson just about every week.
TE: Jacob Tamme (Colts) – A nice little sleeper pick. Tamme has some people questioning if Dallas Clark may be a bit overrated the way he has stepped in and not missed a beat.
QB: Ryan Fitzpatrick (Bills) – The Bills need a win. Badly. Fitzpatrick is playing well. Mostly. Seems like a boom or bust play here.
RB: Arian Foster (Texans) – Get at least one stud in your lineup every week is the mantra of this game, and Foster is most definitely a stud, particularly against Jacksonville.
WR: Andre Johnson (Texans) – Ok, new mantra: TWO studs are better than one. Although teaming Johnson with Foster may turn out to be a bad decision. We’ll have to wait and see.
TE: Dustin Keller (Jets) – I mentioned on the podcast that this pick was made purely as an attempt to reverse jinx my actual fantasy opponent this week. Seems like flawed reasoning, but a good way to cover all bases.
