Calling Our Shots: Week Two

Fantasy football can at times be a very funny place to seek help when you need it most. One week, a so called “expert” will tell you to start “Player A” because “Player A” is a “can’t miss” starter who will blow up that week. A week later, that expert will deny giving that advice to their readers or followers but will be more than happy to tell you to start “Player B” this week. It would be almost comical in some instances if it wasn’t so tragic for the people who take the advice of these charlatans.

As a staff member of DLF, I can tell you that everyone affiliated with this site both loathes and detests this behavior. Every staff member on the DLF team constantly tries to learn and better ourselves so we may be of better help to you. Part of that process is being accountable for our successes, as well as our failures. We’re doing that each and every week as we’re offering personalized lineup advice as part of our premium content. We’re answering every question posted in a timely manner and helping out as best we can – those answers are public knowledge and we’ll stand by them every week.

We’ve also decided to roll out this new series entitled, “Calling Our Shots.” The premise of this series is to get some predictions for the upcoming week. Some writer’s predictions are bold, some are solid, while others, well, we wouldn’t place too much money on them in Las Vegas!

When we’re right, we’ll share our successes. When we’re wrong, it should present a great way for our loyal readers to give us a good (and hopefully friendly) ribbing. The point is we don’t hide from the advice we give or the predictions we make.

We also want to give you the same chance.

Our community is an essential part of the success of DLF. This weekly series also asks YOU, the readers, to post your own shots in the comments below. We all have that coach in our league who says, “Yeah, I could have told you not to start that guy” and perhaps that’s even you who thinks that! Well, here’s your chance to make those bold predictions when they count – before the games are played. We invite everyone to blow up the comments section again today and make any player predictions you want for the week – this will give you a perfect opportunity to officially say, “I told you so,” or offer a brutally embarrassing piece of ammunition for your opponent to use against you next week. Either way, this is a great way for the community and the writers to have some good old fashioned fun each and every week!

Every person who is featured in subsequent weeks will be put into a drawing after week 17 for a free yearly membership or their renewal to our premium content and a free DLF T-shirt!

So, with one week of NFL play down, what do we know?

Well, we know that CJ Spiller, Stevan Ridley and Alfred Morris are all top ten running backs. We know that Mark Sanchez is an amazing quarterback and Alex Smith, Christian Ponder and Sam Bradford have better quarterback ratings than Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton. If we are looking for the number one receiver in football we need look no further than Darren McFadden. Should we decide to overlook McFadden, the names that start to crop up are Kevin Ogletree, Andrew Hawkins and Randall Cobb.

I mean we all saw that coming, right?

Well, don’t feel too bad, not many of us did. Some small gambles paid off for me personally. On several of my low end weekly/daily games I flexed Morris on a whim and earned myself enough money for a decent restaurant meal. However, you know how sure I was about that pick? So sure I didn’t even mention it on last week’s “Calling Our Shots” article when it wouldn’t have cost me a dime.

Enough about the weird first week of the 2012 season – let’s get to the meat of the article. How did things pan out for the staff predictions? Well, here are some nice shots that were called, especially by Steve Wyremski who hit on almost every one:

Jeff Beran – Reggie Bush finishes with 0 TDs and less than 85 total yards because Houston keys on him all game.

Ken Kelly – Julio Jones eats the Kansas City Chiefs defense alive and scores not once, but twice on Sunday.

TheFFGhost – Dexter McCluster emerges as a potent weapon for Kansas City with over 5 receptions

Steve Wyremski – Matt Ryan – 300 yards+ passing and 3+ TDs. Julio Jones – 125+ yards receiving and 1+ TD.

Eric Hardter – Julio Jones will lead all WRs in receiving yards.

Steve Wyremski – Pierre Garcon – 6+ catches, 100+ yards receiving, 1+ TD.

TheFFGhost – Garcon goes for over 100 yards in receiving, he is for real folks!

Jarrett Behar – RGIII will be a Top 10 QB Week 1.

Steve Wyremski – Stevan Ridley – 120 yards+ rushing, 25+ receiving, 1 TD.

Jaron Foster – Four Green Bay receivers will finish with 5+ receptions.

Steve Wyremski – Willis McGahee – 50 yards rushing, 0 TDs.

All in all, some decent predictions and a couple of surprises that came true. Here are a couple of others we just barely missed on:

Eric Dickens – Brandon Marshall has a double-digit reception game in being reunited w/ Cutler.

TheFFGhost – Amendola will post over 6 catches and 70 receiving yards.

We saw some really interesting predictions from our readers, but here is the entry we selected from week one from “Ches:”

  • Ryan Tannehill throws for 2 INTs and maybe a TD
  • No HOU WR other than Andre Johnson will eclipse 5 fantasy pts (8 in PPR)
  • Sam Bradford will throw for 1 or 2 TDs, and put up decent yds, but will remain mediocre enough to keep his WRs fantasy irrelevant in most leagues
  • Michael Turner has trouble keeping up with Atlanta’s new fast-paced offense; Jacquizz Rodgers rivals him in fantasy pts and outscores him in PPR leagues
  • Greg Olsen puts up solid TE1 numbers; Newton struggles to rush as effectively, rushing 7 times for <25 yds and no rushing TDs
  • San Diego will have a hard time rushing; passing won’t be much easier, Carson Palmer will outscore Philip Rivers in fantasy points, not because he is better, but because his weapons are.

He almost hit on this one, too:

  • Russell Wilson will provide the win, but disappoint fantasy owners with less than 200 yds passing, less than 25 yds rushing, a passing TD, and 2 INTs

So Ches, congratulations, you’ve been entered in our drawing after your performance in week one. Good Luck at the end of the season!

Now let’s take a look at some of the DLF staff picks for week two:

Kansas City @ Buffalo

Eric Olinger – CJ Spiller will be held under 80 yards rushing.

Jacob Feldman – Stevie Johnson goes over 100 yards with a score since the Chiefs game plan to take Spiller out of the game.

TheFFGhost – Remember last week when I said McCluster was going to emerge? He’s not done yet with another 5+ receptions in this game.

Steve WyremskiMcCluster continues to be big part of offense with 100+ yards receiving.

Eric Hardter – Jamaal Charles has five receptions this week, after having zero last week.

Cleveland @ Cincinnati

Eric Olinger – Brandon Weeden throws for more yards than Andy Dalton.

Eric Dickens – AJ Green takes advantage of Joe Haden’s suspension and goes for 100+ yards & 2 TD’s.

Jacob Feldman – Cleveland will once again have under 250 yards of total offense, making all of their players fantasy benches.

TheFFGhost – Andrew Hawkins wasn’t a fluke, he posts another 6+ receptions this game.

Eric Hardter – Trent Richardson gets back on track with 90 yards and a TD, in a losing effort.

Minnesota @ Indianapolis

Eric Olinger – Adrian Peterson will break 100 yards rushing and find the end zone.

Jacob Feldman – Andrew Luck suddenly looks like an all-pro again as he lights up the Vikings for 300 yards and multiple touchdowns. He’s going to abuse bad teams, but struggle against good ones. He’s still a rookie.

Ken Kelly – Jared Allen sacks Andrew Luck not once, but twice.

Eric Hardter – Adrian Peterson rushes for 120 yards, with two TD’s.

New Orleans @ Carolina

Eric Hardter – Carson Palmer exceeds 300 yards passing.

Arizona @ New England

Eric Olinger – Wes Welker catches 7+ passes and at least one touchdown in a “sorry about last week” make-up game.

Jacob Feldman – Wes Welker leads the Patriots in catches this week because Tom Brady heard all of the media talking as well. Use it as a sell high moment though, because it ends up being Welker’s best week of the year as weeks 3-17 end up being a lot like week one.

Chris Rohrer – Patriots defense smothers Kolb and the Cardinals and record at least 3 sacks and 2 interceptions.

TheFFGhost – Stevan Ridley will break the century mark in rushing again this week.

Steve WyremskiStevan Ridley with 150+ total yards and 1 TD+.

Dan Hasty – David Wilson will run for more yards than a mod Bradshaw.

Eric Hardter – Vincent Jackson has over 100 yards receiving, with 1 TD.

Baltimore @ Philadelphia

Eric Olinger – Ray Rice tops 150 total yards and scores at least one TD.

Ken Kelly – Ray Lewis hammers Michael Vick in the ribs midway through the second quarter and Nick Foles enters the game. Vick returns after halftime only to see the Eagles lose. After the game, he complains about being on the ground constantly.

Eric Hardter – Ray Rice exceeds 25 touches, for 140+ total yards.

Washington @ St. Louis

Eric Olinger – RGIII throws for less than 250 yards but has 50+ yards rushing.

Jacob Feldman – Chris Johnson will have another bad game, averaging under 3.0 YPC once again.

Jaron Foster – Chris Johnson 80+ yards and a TD, Gates with 2 TDs.

TheFFGhost – This is a passing affair as both sides combine for less than 150 yards rushing. Johnson racks up at least 5 receptions as the Titans take note of how the Raiders exposed their Chargers defense by passing out of the backfield.

Steve WyremskiJared Cook with 80+ yards receiving and 1 TD.

Eric Hardter – Jared Cook again leads the Titans in receiving.

Detroit @ San Francisco

Eric Olinger – Frank Gore rushes for 100+ yards and a TD while Calvin continues his 100 yards per game streak.

Eric Dickens – Kevin Smith piles up 100+ all-purpose yards against a tough 49ers D.

Jacob Feldman – Megatron goes over 100 yards with a touchdown on a long bomb early in the game. Pettigrew leads the team in catches on lots of underneath routes once they triple team Megatron after the bomb, but everyone else struggles.

Jaron Foster – Pettigrew finds the end zone, Hunter with 100+ total yards.

TheFFGhost – San Francisco find a way to “contain” Megatron, limiting him to less than 80 yards of receiving. Pettigrew picks up the slack by collecting over 6 receptions.

I’m going to say that Andrew Hawkins from Cincinnati is going to go for 8-75-2 I think he emerges as the #2. Gersham has poor route running.

Ben Schmidt

Chris Johnson scores more points than CJ Spiller in Week 2 and for the rest of the season. The hate has gone too far on Johnson and the hype surrounding Spiller following his Week 1 performance has gotten out of control. Many FF writers are advocating trading Johnson for Spiller. The bigger prediction to be made is what tweetorical maneuvers will be made by these guys in the efforts to distance themselves from this week’s advice.

Oakland @ Miami – Neither team does much in a heavy rainstorm. Run-DMC put up 100 total yards, which is the highest from either side, but picks up a score.

Tennessee @ San Diego – Ryan Mathews sits again. Curtis Brinkley rushes for more yards thank Chris Johnson, but CK3 picks up a TD, and Brinkley does not.

Jets @ Pittsburgh – Revis Island is left, well…off the island. His absence allows Emmanuel Sanders to go for 8 catches, 90 yards, and a score.

Denver @ Atlanta – Denver’s defense proves to be the difference, holding Matty Ice Ice Baby to 225 through the air, but Julio picks up a nice redzone TD. in an Atlanta loss.

Minnesota @ Indy – Christian Ponder is ineffective on 3rd downs, opening the door for Andrew Luck and the Colts. Indy wins a close one, with Luck throwing for 3 scores and almost 300 yards.

Detroit @ San Fran – Frank Gore is held in check, less than 75 yards, and no scores, by Detroit’s front 7. However, Michael Crabtree has a career day, over 125 yards, and a score. Throw in a cheapy for Randi (sic) Moss as well.

Tampa @ NY Giants – A depleted Giants secondary gives up a ton of yards early, Mike (non fat Mike) goes for over a hundred, and a score. In the second half, Doug Martin goes hogwild, putting up 75 yards in the second half alone, along with 50 more through the air.
