I’m going back out on that fantasy football limb. I will pick five players I believe will score more points this week than a higher profile player. The scoring will be 6 points for rushing or receiving TD, 4 points for a passing TD, .1 points per yard for rushing or receiving and .05 points per passing yard. I will also do a Super Stretch Pick where I take a real longshot. First, I’ll recap last week.
Tony Romo 31.25 destoyed Brett Favre 2.8 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
Brian Westbrook 19.9 beat Clinton Portis 12.0 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
Edgerrin James 11.4 beat Joseph Addai 6.7 as I predicted.
Terrell Owens 21.6 beat Greg Jennings 14.7 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
Braylon Edwards 20.9 smoked Larry Fitzgerald 0.0 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
Travis Henry 16.9 over Rudi Johnson 9.4 as I predicted.
Regular Picks: 1-4
Super Stretch Picks: 1-0
Breakdown: QB: 0-1, RB: 1-2, WR: 1-1
Regular Picks: 30-35-1
Super Stretch Picks: 11-2
Breakdown: QB: 7-8, RB: 20-12-1, WR: 13-17
This Week’s Picks
Tony Romo over Tom Brady +2
All right. I’ll take on the big guy. I’ll even spot him two points.
I’ll take Romo against the Lions over Brady facing the Steelers.
Ryan Grant over Willis McGahee
Both of these backs are on fire. However, one gets to face the soft
Oakland defense (Grant) while the other has a tougher task against the
Kolby Smith over Travis Henry
I’ll take the rookie over Travis “All My Children” Henry. Thanks JP,
for the borrowed term. Denver’s run defense is pretty soft.
Marques Colston over Greg Jennings
Jennings has been a TD machine, but Atlanta’s pass defense is much
worse than the Raiders.
Calvin Johnson over Wes Welker
With Roy Williams out the Lions will have to lean heavily on the
rookie. I think he responds. Welker will have a hard time finding
space against that tough Pittsburgh defense.
Fred Jackson over Frank Gore
Fred gets to go off against Miami. Most likely Marshawn Lynch won’t play. Gore faces a tough MN run defense. This one could easily blow up in my face.
