WR Lance Moore, Saints at Jaguars
The Jaguars are ranked 7th in pass defense, allowing just 196 yards a game, in the Jack Del Rio era they play soft coverages to take away the big play, this plays into Moore’s hands, he had nine receptions for 88 yards and a score last week against Houston, who play a similar pass defense as the Jaguars, also his two receptions for the pair of 2 point conversation did not list on his stat line. Moore is to Drew Brees what Wes Welker is to Tom Brady against defenses like this, Moore’s strength is getting open on short routes, beneath coverage, not every match up will be this favorable, start Moore, he should duplicate his statistics from last week
WR Eric Decker, Broncos at Packers
The Packers allow 359 yards passing a game and are ranked 31st, they have allowed 7 different wide receivers to score at least 8 fantasy points in a game this year. Decker had twelve targets last week, his totals from the last two games are twelve receptions, 161 yards, and 2 touchdowns, he is getting thrown to and the Packers are not covering well, it all adds to a solid fantasy day for Decker.
QB Jason Campbell, Raiders vs. Patriots
The Patriots are the only team worse than the Packers against the pass, allowing 377 yards a game and six scoring throws in three games. The Patriots have not been this bad against the pass since their AFL days in the 1960’s, when they had to face gunslingers Joe Namath, Len Dawson, Daryl Lamonica, and John Hadl twice each year. This has the makings of a high scoring game, the Raiders and Patriots have each scored over 30 points their last two games. Campbell has the receivers in Denarius Moore and Jacoby Ford to score plenty of fantasy points.
RB James Starks, Packers vs. Broncos
Starks did almost nothing last week in Chicago. Ryan Grant had the solid day. With Grant hurting, Starks should get 25 touches. The Broncos have played the run tough, allowing just 3.7 yards a carry. Starks though before last week, averaged 6.76 yards a carry. The Broncos have never played well in Green Bay, allowing 34 points a game at Lambeau Field and this is the best Packer team they have faced there. Starks will handle the ball enough to have a positive fantasy day
RB Jahvid Best, Lions at Cowboys
Ingram is not getting enough touches to be an effective fantasy running back. He has 23 carries his last two games. With Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas sharing carries with him, he will not get the ball enough to score points against a Jaguar run defense that is allowing 83 yards a game, one rushing score for the season, and 3.4 yards a carry.
TE Kellen Winslow, Buccaneers vs. Colts
The Colts have lost their best linebacker Gary Brackett for the season, even missing him for most of this year; the Colts have not allowed many fantasy points to TE’s. Winslow appears to playing injured or is just not hustling. He has just six receptions for sixty four yards his last two games. Buccaneer quarterback Josh Freeman is not playing well, throwing twice as many interceptions as touchdowns. Find another starting TE this week.
QB Kevin Kolb, Cardinals vs. Giants
Kolb threw 2 interceptions and one touchdown last week against the Seahawks and he did not play well against the Redskins the week before. Defenses are trying to take Larry Fitzgerald away, and Kolb is not getting the ball to Fitzgerald enough to make him a starting fantasy QB. Kolb targeted Todd Heap more than Fitzgerald last week, that speaks volumes. The Giants are ranked 20th against the pass but even though they are injury depleted they are playing above their averages, they had three interceptions and did not allow a scoring throw against the Eagles last week. Kolb should only be started this week in deep two quarterback leagues.
