Fantasy Gem- Jay Cutler vs. Philadephia Eagles. In his first play after coming back off an injury last week, Jay Cutler threw a pick. We could consider that him shaking the rust off because after that he was money. There are a lot of good gems at QB this week e.g. Phillip Rivers @ Oakland, but I believe with this being his second week back and he ia s bit more in synch with his receivers, Cutler should put up some very nice numbers for your Superbowl week.
Fantasy Sleeper-Kirk Cousins vs. Dallas Cowboys. We all saw the collapse of the Dallas Cowboys last week. That defense isn’t one that has been striking fear in the eyes of offensive coordinators all season. It looks like Jerry Jones made a fatal mistake letting Rob Ryan go and bringing in legend Monty Kiffin. I believe Kirk Cousins will come in and shine against a weak Dallas defense. If you are an Aaron Rodgers owner and need a nice fill in for your championship game, Cousins could be a good fit.
Fantasy Gem-Ryan Matthews vs. Oakland Raiders. Last week Ryan Matthews went nuts against the Denver Broncos. He didn’t put up All World numbers, but without a doubt he changed the game for the Chargers as they were able to effectively run the ball and keep it away from Peyton and the gang. I believe the Chargers will be up a lot early and will use Matthews in garbage time allowing him to accumulate yards and td’s simply on the amount of carries he will receive.
Fantasy Sleeper- Jodan Todman vs Tennessee Titans. Despite the Titans having one of the better defenses in the league, they haven’t faired that ell against the run. With MoJo out last week, Todman rushed for 109 yards and caught 44 yards out of the backfield. With Cecil Shorts out, Justin Blackmon out, and Maurice Jones Drew (MoJo), Todman will have more than ample opportunities to show and prove. If you are in RB trouble or don’t like your match up, Todman is someone to consider.
Fantasy Gem- Josh Gordon vs. New York Jets As it saddens me immensely to put someone matched up against our beloved Jets,
this is an awesome matchup for Josh Gordon owners in their Championship/Toilet Bowl . The Jets have a weakened secondary with Cromartie not 100% and the Milliner/Walls tandem at corner. Josh Gordon will have a field day and you should definitely start him as he is this weeks gem at WR.
Fantasy Sleeper- Kendall Wright @ Jacksonville Jaguars. Kendall Wright has been terribly inconsistent in the past few weeks. On the bright side though, he is essentially the Titans number 1 receiver and should stretch the field against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fitzpatrick has done a nice job this year in place of Locker. If you need a good flex or #3 wide receiver, Kendall Wright has very nice sleeper potential.
