It's a tough fantasy week for many owners with the amount of offensive firepower on the sidelines this week. No Forte, Brees, Pierre Thomas, Colston, Rivers, Rodgers, etc. The list really does go on. Well, I can't go on for ten minutes with my Fantasy Foreplay, so I figured throwing some names out there as possible starters wouldn't be a bad idea for you fellow owners. Here we go...
I think Carson Palmer will be a good option if you have someone sitting. Baltimore is human against the pass and will keep tight on Cedric Benson. Palmer's not the only quarterback in that game that'll do well, I like Joe Flacco in this one. Also, start D. Mason.
Some other quick options for you this football Sunday...Marion Barber will crush the Chiefs run defense, but KC will fight back through the air and I think Dwayne Bowe will leave the Witness Protection Program and make some noise. Finally, look out for Josh Morgan in San Francisco as the 49'ers host the overrated Falcons defense. We saw it here in the New England game, the Falcons defense isn't as good as some thought they were.
Oh, one more bonus wideout...Mohamed Massaquoi. Braylon Edwards is gone and Massaquoi proved he can play last week. On top of that, the Browns play a terrible Buffalo defense.
Hope some of that helps you...Any questions during the week when you're fantasy planning, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org and continue to listen to Tanguay and Zolak on 98-5 The Sports Hub from 10a-2pm. Fantasy Foreplay every Friday in the one o'clock hour.
