At this point in the season, the moves to be made are trades (before the true value of every player is known to your entire league) and smart decisions regarding which players to start against which teams. Now shut up! Pay attention! OK, let's begin.
The New Orleans Saints may very well have the worst defense in the NFL. Last week they gave up 233 yards rushing to Jamaal Charles. The week before they were lit up by Cam Newton. Week 1 saw Robert Griffin III throw a party for himself in the Superdome in a way no rookie should be allowed.
This week, the Saints are coming to Lambeau to face an angry, angry, aaaannngry Packers team (I forgot why. Can anybody recall?) So who's about to go off on New Orleans this time around? If you've got Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, I'm sure you're starting them already. For those of you who might have Randall Cobb or Cedric Benson on your bench, get 'em in the starting lineup. James Jones is owned in less than 25% of leagues. If you're short a WR this week he should definitely be considered. Either way, I'm pretty sure the Saints are about to get it.
On the flip side, it should be a high scoring game in Lambeau, so look to start your Saints wide receivers in anticipation of the shootout.
Don't start players against the Cardinals. Or atleast try not to, okay?
Get what you can for Chris Johnson, before his name is 100% obsolete
Chris Johnson sucks.
It's the dawn of the new day for every #1 WR facing the Jets
Starting the #1 receiver going up against the Jets just wasn't worth it in the past. Well, because a certain someone is out for the season, the fog has lifted, and you can go ahead and start... Michael Crabtree? OK, sure, Michael Crabtree it is!
The Jets have been terrible against the run this season, and going up against the Niners you can be sure they're going to stack the box to try get stifle Frank Gore. With Moss playing the deep threat, it's likely we'll see Cromartie running with him and (3rd year) perennial rookie Kyle Wilson on Crabtree. This will be the matchup Alex Smith would try to exploit outside the numbers.
Also look for Vernon Davis to have a big day as the Jets tend to struggle against TEs with Revis on the field, but you knew that already, you fantasy genius you.
Maybe this even means he'll get a new contract!. Just kidding! The Patriots hate you for some reason, Wes, now shut up and run crossing patterns for everybody's benefit but your own!
