Observations and Predictions... Week 8

I recorded a decent 9-4 week last week. My Cowboys looked really good in beating the Falcons. Steelers and Vikings was exciting to the last minute. The Cards impressed in upsetting the Giants. Saints pulled one out late against the Fins.

Here were the top performers of the week:
QB-Tony Romo:311 yards passing with 3 scores. He even pitched in with 31 rushing yards.More importantly he made no mistakes in a Cowboys win.
WR-Miles Austin: Another huge day as he has become Romo' s go-to downfield option. 171 yards and 2 scores.
RB-Ricky Williams: Didn't break the century mark, but scored 3 times in an almost upset of the undefeated Saints.
TE-Vernon Davis: 93 yards and 3 scores from Alex Smith.
DEF-New York (Jersey) Jets: Pitched a shutout and harassed Oakland all day.
Special Teams-Vikings: Percy Harvin had big returns (and a score) all day long.

Cowboys are my lock of the week against the Seahawks. I think they've turned the corner. Vikings go to Lambeau and steal one against the Packers. The Eagles hold off the Giants at home. Baltimore avoids a four game skid and hands the Broncos their first loss. Cardinals in a close over Carolina. Falcons burst the Saints bubble.

The rest of the schedule should shake out like this: Houston big over Buffalo; Bears take out last weeks Ohio debacle on the states other team... sorry Browns. Detroit wins a second one in taking out the Rams. Colts big over SF. Jets in a squeeker over the Dolphins. Jags over the Titans in a shootout. Chargers huge over the Raiders.

Fantasy Picks of the Week
QB-David Garrard: Titans have been awful against the pass. Garrard and the Jags should benefit.
WR-Reggie Wayne: Big day against the Niners
RB-Steve Slaton: Bills have been bad against the run, plus my fantasy squad needs Slaton to finally play well.
TE-Tony Gonzalez: Matches up well with the undersized Saints linebackers.
DEF-San Diego: Oakland has been a welcome opponent for athletic blitzing defenses.
Special Teams: Bears: Browns are awful everywhere. Gould kicks, and Knox returns could spell trouble.



  • Man, you really don't like the Saints, do ya?

  • I'm liking the extra WR's of the Saints against a mediocre Falcons secondary now depleted

    Meachum? Henderson?

    the ball will get sprayed all over the field surely
