Week 2 NFL Fantasy Notes

September 18, 2009

If I get to it I will try to put a few fantasy notes up on the blog before every new NFL week.  I will try to keep it general because there are so many different formants out there…

The 49ers have always been a team which greenlights their opponents players for a fantasy game.  Last week, however, they shut down the Cardinals high-powered offense.  After this week we will know if that is more about the San Fransisco defense or the Arizona Cardinals offensive woes.

I own Chris Cooley in all my leagues and I have a feeling he might be the #1 TE in all of fantasy football at year’s end.  He catches everything (including passes through wood) and will be a big target in the red zone this year.  Zach Miller will also be a top 5 TE.

Aaron Rodgers should allow his owners to celebrate properly after they chose to take a risk and spend a top 30 pick in him.  Despite modest numbers last week, he should shred the Bengals defense this week.

Mark Sanchez is my boy.  I’m just gonna put it out there.  The Jets this season remind me of last year’s Falcons.  Great running game, solid defense, and a beyond-his-years rookie QB who makes good decisions and is already the face of the franchise (the Franchez if you will).  He might be a good sleeper pick vs. the Patriots.

Adrian Peterson might run for 300 yards this week.  Brett Favre might only have to throw 10-15 passes.  Detroit’s defense is awful.

Will the Matt Forte who owners drafted in the top 4 picks please show up.   Not this week.  The Steelers are for real and Jay Cutler targeted Forte out of the backfield zero times last week.  Until Cutler realizes that utilizing the drop off pass to the RB opens up the deep ball later in a game, both he and Forte will underachieve fantasy wise.

Drew Brees might be this year’s version of the 2007 Tom Brady.  He has a ton of weapons at his disposal, the skill set and accuracy to deliver balls on target and on time, and a coach who will let him throw all game if necessary.   He will single handedly win 4-6 weeks for you this year.

This week’s sleeper picks : Jamaal Charles (KC vs. OAK), Darren McFadden (Oak vs. KC), Correll Buckhalter (Den vs. ), Todd Heap (Bal vs. SD)

This week’s busts: Cedric Benson (Cin vs. GB), Ronnie Brown (MIA vs. IND), Steve Slaton (HOU vs. TEN), TIm Hightower (AR vs JAX)

Thats all for me this week.  Have  good night and drive home safely.
