Fantasy: Week 6 Stars and Stiffs Report


The hits and misses keep on adding up through the first 5 weeks of the 2016 Fantasy season. We continue to have underperformers whose hope is slowly dying and overachievers whose confidence is flying high. It finally time to cut bait on the dead weight?

Remember, in most leagues there are only 7 regular season weeks left and the time to make moves is dwindling away. Fantasy Football is a “what have you done for me lately” activity and one constructed of streaks. We are high-powered place holders, with a zero investment vision for the future. In layman’s terms, tell those stiffs to take a hike!

The world of sports media can be a beautiful thing when all parties are involved and engulfed in a stern debate. As always, I look forward to your opinions and feedback. You can tweet with any questions (@TCutillo23) and leave your comments below. For my statistical hounds out there I will put last week’s stats in parentheses so you can see how I performed. Here are my picks for week 6………….

Stars for Week 6  (Last Week…5 out of 8…..62.5%)

QB: Carson Wentz (@WAS), Andrew Luck (@HOU), Russell Wilson (ATL)

RB: LeSean McCoy (SF), Giovani  Bernard (@NE), Matt Forte (@ARZ)

WR/TE: Will Fuller (IND), Brandon Marshall (@ARZ), Jeremy Maclin (@OAK)

 

Stiffs for Week 6  (Last Week….6 out of 6….100%)

QB: Ryan Tannehill (PIT)

RB: Theo Riddick (LA), Jeremy Hill (@NE)

WR/TE: Jeremy Kerley (@BUF), S. Shepard (BAL), D. Baldwin (ATL)

 

Sleepers: (Last Week…1 out of 3)

Colin Kaepernick (@BUF), Sammie Coates (@MIA), Justin Forsett (LA)

Bust Alert: (Last Week….0 out of 2)

Matt Ryan (@SEA), Ryan Matthews (@WAS)

 

Week 6 Triple Threat…….

Alex Smith (@OAK) I know Alex Smith is the king of Dink and Dunk, but this week he will polish off the rifle. There aren’t many games where the Chiefs decide to throw downfield on a consistent basis, but this week they are facing a secondary that Guerilla Glue couldn’t even hold together. This is my pick for shootout of the week and Smith will be on the winning side of it.

LeSean McCoy (SF) – Guess who’s back. Shady’s back. LeSean was thought to be dead and washed up in the eyes of Chip Kelly, but this year he is proving otherwise. LeSean showed flashes of the Shady we had come to expect, but not at a consistent level. This year he has that extra step back and the elusiveness he showed in his first years in the league is reborn. He continues to be a top Fantasy RB this year and with the rash of injuries we have witnessed, could very well finish in the top 5.

T.Y. Hilton (@HOU) – Hilton may very well be Fantasy Football’s #1 WR. He is the only player that has been targeted 10 times or more through the first 5 weeks of the season and his speed is second to none. The Colts haven’t necessarily been explosive on offense this year, but a matchup with a team that seems to be leaking oil is just another chance for T.Y. to shine.

NFL Championship Weekend…Road to Arizona Continues


champs

The stage is set and ready for Prime Time. The road to the Superbowl continues on Sunday when arguably 4 of the Top 5 quarterbacks will be on display for the entire world to watch. Last weekend we seen an underdog in the Ravens squander a game away and possibly a true legend of the game in Manning take his last NFL snap. Superman was alive for one-quarter, but an evil enemy named Chancellor proved to be too strong for his punch. Lastly, we seen America’s team lose by a bobble and a courageous athlete lead his Pack to victory who could barely even give a discount double-check to his opposition. I am sure this weekend will leave a lasting impression on us all and prove to be just as entertaining.

Packers at Seahawks

One week after a gutsy performance by Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers travel to Seattle to take on the Seattle Seahawks and the Legion of Boom. We all know about the calf, but despite the injury, Rodgers completed 24 passes for 316 yards and three touchdowns against Dallas. The running game proved to be efficient enough to keep some pressure of the QB with Eddie Lacy running for over 100 yards on 19 carries. It was also nice to see the other receivers not named Jordy (Cobb and Adams) step up and eclipse the 100 yard receiving mark.

The Seahawks meanwhile were exactly who we thought they were in a 31-17 defeat of the Carolina Panthers. Russell Wilson delighted fans all over the football world as he showed why he is one of the most electric and top QB’s in the league as he passed for three touchdowns on 15 completions. The Legion of Boom did their job as they pressured Cam Newton all game forcing him into two interceptions and erratic throws most of the day. Seattle sits at 7-1 at home including a 36-16 victory over the Packers in Week 1 and has been playing at level that may be even higher than that of last year. Look for the Seahawks to throw the heavy blitz book at Rogers forcing him to put pressure on the calf trying to be the mobile QB he can be when healthy. Green Bay is a formidable opponent, but under these circumstances I think they will come up short.

Prediction: Packers 17, Seahawks 23

 

Colts at Patriots

The Ravens came out throwing knockout punches from the gate, but didn’t have the stamina to preserve a win. Bill Belichick put the game into the hands of his HOF Quarterback in the 2nd Half and the rest is history.  This week the Patriots welcome Andrew Luck and the Colts into their house of Gold, as they square off into a battle for supremacy in the AFC. The Patriots have won the last five meetings between these teams by an average of 18 points. The Patriots ran all over the Colts back in Week 11 in Indianapolis. I am sure everyone remembers the Jonas Grey game that haunted fantasy players all around the world. Look for Tom Brady to continue to use his offensive vision and mighty arm to wear down the Indianapolis defense and open up the field.

On the flipside, Andrew Luck leads the league’s top ranked pass attack in the regular season into Gillette in the hopes of earning a trip to the big dance. The Colts have been slowly trying to bring their run game back from the depths of the unknown with the emergence of Dan Herron. Herron took over for an overvalued T-Rich and has proved to be a spark. He has an incredible 18 catches so far this post-season which gives this offense yet another weapon in the passing game for the Patriots to defend against. Indianapolis will look downfield to TY Hilton whenever they can and should find some opportunities if the taller Browner is lined up opposite against the smaller quicker Hilton.

I think this is the game out of the 2 that has a chance to keep us guessing. These are two exciting teams and should put up a decent amount of points. Chuck Pagano has really proved himself to be an incredible gameday coach and doesn’t get anywhere near the respect he deserves. I see this game being decided late with only a touchdown as separation. Both teams will go to their air attacks early and often. Despite the Colts improved defense and the Patriots strong secondary, I think this game will have so many highlights they may need to add another 5 minute segment on Sportscenter to be able to see them all.

Prediction: Colts 31, Patriots 38

NFL Divisional Playoff Analysis


playoffs1

Well it’s almost time for another round of NFL Playoffs and a weekend that should leave us in a pool of excitement. The level of talent left in these 4 games should live up to their reputation and should not disappoint. If playing against some stiff competition wasn’t enough, Mother Nature has voiced her displeasure for the NFL Playoffs by sticking all 4 games into a pattern of frigid temperatures and bone-crushing wind chills cold enough to make an Eskimo shiver. This weekend is definitely going to separate the men from the boys, helping the crowd bring back the forever loved Pedro Martinez chants of, “Who’s your Daddy.” Below is my attempt to preview and pick the winners for all four games.

Ravens at Patriots

How many people expected the Ravens to go into Pittsburgh and knock out the Steelers in front of their home crowd? Well that is exactly what they did and now have their sights set on knocking the arrogance out of New England’s mouth. New England has a 12-3 playoff record at home during the Belichick/Brady regime, but 2 out of those 3 loses came from the Ravens. The Ravens seem to have found something to be able to stop Tom Brady’s air attack by constant pressure up the middle making him make bad decisions. We all know what happens to Tom when he doesn’t get his way. He acts like a spoiled little kid on Christmas morning that cries because he didn’t get an Xbox. However, if that pressure doesn’t get through, Mr. Brady will be slicing up the Baltimore defense quicker than a junkie that hasn’t made a sponsor meeting in over a year. It will not be pretty for the 24th ranked defense allowing just under 250yds a game and a total of 22 touchdowns. Here are some more interesting keys to the game:

• Joe Flacco has more Playoff wins on the road (7) than any other quarterback in NFL history

• Flacco (2) and Brady (1) in their 3 head to head playoff matchups

• Forsett has been slowing down in the 2nd half of the season and was held to only 36 yards last week. Patriots allowed 104.3 rushing yards a game, but only 6 TD’s during the regular season.

• Julian Edelman has made Wes Welker an afterthought in the slot. 92 catches this year, 105 last years. Enough said!

• There will be so much trash being thrown around on the field by Revis and Smith that New England had to make Sunday a collection day this week.

Prediction: Ravens 28, Patriots 24

 

Panthers at Seahawks

It’s Superman versus the Legion of Boom. Unfortunately, in this fairy tale, the Seattle Seahawks are Cam Newton’s kryptonite. Did the Panthers start the season off well? No. Did they perform well down the stretch? Yes they did. However, if the Panthers thought the Cardinals defense was a tough nut to crack, they’ll be in for a rude awakening here in the divisional round when they head to Seattle to play against the defending Super Bowl Champions. The Seattle defense has kicked their engine into 4 wheel drive and has been crushing any terrain that gets in their way. Richard Sherman is showing why he was on the Madden cover and why he is the best cornerback in the game. I have to be honest; I have as much confidence in Carolina putting up a fight in this game as I have in Barak Obama turning our country around. Here are a few tidbits from this game below.

• Carolina’s 2 top receivers, Olsen and Benjamin, had a total of seven catches for 70 yards and no scores last weekend

• Seahawks conceded an average of just 153 passing yards per game, but did give 11 TD’s to opposing TE’s which was 3rd most in the league.

• Jonathan Stewart has been hot…He’s averaged close to 100 yds per game over his last 6…

• Russell Wilson led all QB’s this season with 849 rushing yards and protected the ball with only 7 INT’s

• Marshawn Lynch has touched the ball over 1,300 times over the past 4 seasons…He has been banged up a little bit this year, but this is the playoffs and the beast is about to be unleashed.

Prediction: Seahawks 27, Panthers 13

 

Cowboys at Packers

This is the matchup in the NFC everyone is looking forward to because of the many question marks surrounding it. Will Tony Romo continue his MVP play or will he falter in the confines of the cold weather? Will Aaron Rodgers be able play through the pain and put on a show like only he can do? Either way you toss it; this should be a great game between two offensive powerhouses. These 2 storied franchises haven’t played in over 50 years in the playoffs. I think Dallas has the upper hand in the trenches, but we have seen in some games where their line has disappeared. Green Bay on the other hand takes games off on defense on occasion. However, Morgan Burnett will be patrolling the field looking for a star to catch and leaving Dez and Terrence to think about their next step. I really think this game will come down to who scores last. Here are some tidbits from this game below:

• Cowboys are undefeated on the road (8-0)

• Weather can always be an issue in Green Bay especially this late in the year

• Cowboys ranked 2nd in rushing this year and will look to control the game with Murray

• Eddie Lacy will have to step up again with Rodger being limited

• Clay Matthews has led the run stopping surge since he took over the Middle.

Prediction: Packers 34, Cowboys 31

 

Colts at Broncos

In a chess match between student and teacher, Andrew Luck brings his Colts to Denver to battle Peyton and his Broncos. While Peyton Manning is the general of the NFL, Andrew Luck is leaving his stamp on the NFL as the next guy in line to carry that torch. The Colts took care of business against the Bengals last week, who were frauds and a poor excuse for a playoff team. They did it mainly through the air, which is the complete opposite of the counterpart. The Denver Broncos have taken a new identity over the last few weeks and are starting the run the ball behind C.J. Anderson. This guy has been a gem averaging over 80+ yards in the last 6 games right off the practice squad and has afforded Peyton to rest up over the last few weeks and get ready to explode in the playoffs. Here are some tidbits below from this game:

• C.J. Anderson has 80+ rushing yards six times and scored a total of 10 touchdowns over the last 6 games. • Peyton Manning looks slow and out of sync… In his last four games, Manning has thrown twice as many interceptions as touchdowns while dealing with injuries and illness.

• Luck has thrown for 360 YDS/G in his four playoff starts. The emergence of RB Dan Herron was a major factor in their victory over the Bengals as he had 141 total yards along with a rushing touchdown

Predictions: Broncos 31, Colts 27
