Interesting numbers for this weeks projections on the rushing and passing yardage for each team.
The biggest mismatch of the week from these numbers is Kansas City over Tampa Bay. Not sure who you would be starting on your fantasy team from TB but it looks like you want to stay clear of them unless Martin is your only option. On the flip side you have to love Charles in this game, especially if they need to run it more with no Cassell.
The projected biggest rushing day is San Francisco. SF has been great running the ball and the Giants have not been able to stop anyone. Interesting to see Indianapolis projected so high this week. They are averaging 97.5 per game on the ground but this week against the Jets they are projected for 135. Look to start Donald Brown. Another team with a great matchup on the ground is Cincinnati. Cleveland is averaging 142.4 yards against on the ground. Benjarvis Green-Ellis should be getting your start.
Some teams who are projected low would be Tennessee. Chris Johnsons last game was a good one but I would be worried if I was his owner. At a first round pick I am sure you do not want to sit him but this is not a great matchup against Pittsburgh. The team with the worst projected rushing total is the St. Louis Rams. Do not play Steven Jackson if you do not have to. Miami has been very good against the run so far and the Ram offensive line is not getting it done. A couple of other low rankers this week are Denver and Cleveland. Tough to sit Richardson but he is not projected to do much. He does get value in the passing game however.
If you are looking for guys to start in the passing game the top teams look to be Dallas in Baltimore, Denver in San Diego, Minnesota in Washington, Atlanta home for Oakland, Kansas City at Tampa and Pittsburgh in Tennessee. Look for all of these offenses to be able to throw it against teams unable to stop the pass thus far.
On the other side of the coin we have the teams that I think will struggle this week throwing it. Top of the list is Tampa Bay. As I said before it does not look like it will be a fun day for the TB offense. Tennessee looks to be a tough spot this week. Kenny Britt may not be the great sleeper pick people thought. San Diego may surprise some. Could be a chance to play your backup QB this week if he is one of the QB’s projected to have a day better than Rivers.
