NFL Wild Card Week Predictions

Published on January 5, 2013, by in NFL.

My predictions for the Super Bowl and four Wild Card match-ups this weekend:

Cincinnati at Houston (-4.5) 1/5/2013 4:30p ET NBC
My Pick: Texans 23-17

A month ago the Texans were 11-1 and the Super Bowl favorite. But after a drubbing to the Patriots and losses to the Vikings and Colts to finish the season, many are picking the Bengals for an upset.

Winners of 7 of their last 8, Cincinnati will be a good young team for many years to come but their lack of depth at receiver behind AJ Green means they will need to establish the run on a stout Texans D and JJ Watt, my vote for NFL defensive player of the year. Look for Schaub to get another big day out of Andre Johnson, and the consistent Arian Foster to find pay dirt twice.

Minnesota at Green Bay (-7.5)  1/5/2013 8:00p ET NBC
My Pick: Packers 34-20

As incredible as Adrian Peterson has been in carrying the Vikings on his back, I can’t see Green Bay not learning from last week’s loss to Minnesota, and this week they’re at home. The focus all week must have been on team tackling, so expect the Packers to limit AP to 150 yards (is that limiting?) and forcing Ponder to beat them through the air, which he won’t. Rodgers to Jordy Nelson and NFL touchdown leader James Jones all day.

A Head Start on Week 4: The First Bye Week

Published on September 22, 2012, by in NFL.

We may be jumping the gun but there’s no reason to wait until the waiver wire to shore up some line-up holes coming in week 4, the first bye week of the season.

Two teams are off for the week; the Indianapolis Colts and the Pittsburgh Steelers. There are several players listed here that you’ll likely need to find substitutes for on your roster. In case your bench isn’t particularly appealing, we offer some suggestions on players to consider for replacements.

Hold That Waiver Wire – Week 2 Busts, Week 3 Picks

Published on September 18, 2012, by in NFL.

Hands up if you put a claim in for the Cowboys’ Kevin Ogletree or the Jets’ Stephen Hill?

The two gained fantasy attention overnight with 8rec/114yd/2TD and 5rec/89yds/2TD performances in Week 1.

Here’s how they did in Week 2:
Kevin Ogletree (WR): One catch for 26 yards, one target.
Stephen Hill (WR): No catches, two targets.

It was too much to ask for a repeat performance, but to put up a complete egg in Hill’s case is a situation even the most pessimistic pundit couldn’t have fathomed. Yes, Mark Sanchez is merely serviceable at best, but I was at the Cowboys game in Seattle and Ogletree was completely invisible. This was partially due to the Seahawks stout D, but also to Jason Witten getting more involved (and dropping balls). Stash Hill on your bench for now as the Jets visit Miami, but Ogletree is worth a flex or WR2 play against Tampa Bay.

So what can we learn from this? Be cautious on your waiver pickups, as it isn’t worth burning a #1 or #2 priority on a player who is 4th in the progressions as in Ogletree’s case, or has an unreliable QB (Hill). It would be a wiser choice to save your priority for possible injuries to starting RB’s or to use them on players like Alfred Morris if he was still available in your league. Of course, all of this is easy to say in hindsight.

Who to pickup this week?
