……………… A long time scourge to fantasy football owners, Henry Shanahan, Was at it again yesterday morning.
The head coach of the Washington Redskins has been loathed in leagues for years because of his fantasy unfriendly movement of carries to his running backs during his days in Denver, But Shanahan became fantasy bad guy No Reggie Nelson Jersey. 1 with his move yesterday evening.
In a move that can only be told me by his distaste for fantasy football owners, Shanahan benched franchise qb Donovan McNabb with two minutes left in a winnable game. Losman to run this week in an apparent attempt to have the worst quarterbacks in the history of the league.
If I were definitely Ryan Leaf, I stay by the phone now.
McNabb has had his fluctuations in his first season with Washington but is still a top 10 QB.
While Shanahan was cementing his bad guy status by cackling and twirling his mustache as he tied McNabb fantasy proprietors to the railroad tracks, LeGarrette Blount was regetting from dastardly, Sucker puncher to fable darling.
After giving us glimpses off his potential the previous couple of weeks TJ Carrie Jersey, Blount exploded for 120 yards and two touchdowns a couple weeks ago against Arizona.
Tampa Bay plays Atlanta and its underrated defense in an amazing battle for first place in the NFC South on Sunday.
Atlanta is sixth in the league doable for 96.4 rushing yards a game and has allowed only two 100 yard rushers all year Rashard Mendenhall ran for 120 yards in Week 1 but 50 yards came on a landing run in overtime; And Tim Hightower compiled 115 yards EJ Manuel Jersey, These include an 80 yard score in Week 2.
From Week 3, The Falcons have held Pierre jones, Honest Gore, Peyton Hillis, LeSean McCoy and Cedric Benson to a combined 269 yards and haven allowed a running back to run for a landing.
I favor Blount, Just not now against that defense.
So who is the next back to manufacture a Blount like turn?
Hillcrest Ryan Mathews has been putrid this year but has been showing signs of being the fantasy hero so many predicted him to be Jared Cook Jersey.
The rookie from Fresno State still sees Mike Tolbert stealing goal line touches from him but has a great matchup Sunday and a coach who is constantly on the feed him the ball Jalen Richard Jersey.
Mathews and San Diego head to Houston on Sunday to face a Texans defense that just allowed Mike Hart to run for 84 yards on 12 carries before a hurt ankle ended his night early.
Mathews will be good for double what Hart produced as Houston continues to miss injured linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
Talking about Hart, If his ankle allows him to play this week he is a decent No. 2 running as well as a solid flex play. If the nurse can go, Donald Brown will play until he suffers unfortunately a injury. Javarris James is definitely the Colts running back Sunday against Philadelphia.
While James is actually not as talented as his cousin Edgerrin, Keep his name in mind since anybody playing for a passing fancy team as Peyton Manning is a fantasy star in waiting. Just ask Jacob Tamme users.
