1st and 10 Fantasy/Week 10

*I’m posting this for TJFord until we can figure out how to get him on the roster here…I think it’s because he’s metric or something-TINO

Sorry about the delay in this week’s issue. Your favorite Canadian writer has been sidelined day-to-day with torn rib cartilage (Yes, that’s seriously what happened). Anyways, without further adieu, onto the column.

1st and 10 Fantasy- Week 10

Lots of divisional matchups should provide emotion to a solid cast of games this weekend. A couple of big matchups in the NFC East and AFC North with go a long way to deceiding who shakes out of these divisions on top. I think this week is crunch time for the Browns if they want to prove that they belong in the wildcard spot they currently occupy. Beating the Ravens and Bengals has not proved to be difficult, but coming away with a win at the Ketchup Bottle should cement them into contender status.

On the FF front, I came up huge with The Packer passing game, Lee Evans and Vernon Davis but missed on a couple predictions (I blame Frank Gore). Let’s try to keep things rolling this week with my three featured games. As always, start the players in green with confidence, black indicates a so-so start, red is a caution and blue indicates my sleeper.

Rundown: Going into week 6, both of these teams were winless. With star runners injured on both sides and inconsistent quarterbacking plaguing both teams, there was no hope for either team. Fast forward 4 weeks and the Saints are one game out of first place in the division having ripped off wins in their last four games. Drew Brees and the Saints offense looks like last year’s edition and Reggie Bush is establishing himself as a dependable between-the-tackles runner as well as the outside stretch threat. Conversely, the Rams are 0-8 but should have Steven Jackson returning and Marc Bulger at 100%. I like the Rams coming off of a bye week, just not enough for them to win the game.

Perch’s Pick: Saints by 7

QB: Marc Bulger
QB: Drew Brees
RB: Reggie Bush
RB: Steven Jackson

WR: Tory Holt
WR: Isaac Bruce
WR: Marques Colston
WR: David Patten

Rundown: Arguably the two of the best Martz QBs ever will square off against each other in this NFC showdown. The Lions are looking to improve to an astounding 7-2 recond with a win this week. The thing that surprsies me most abotu Detroit in the last few games is their ability to commit to the run. This is not a normal occurance in Mad Mike’s offensive scheme but it has been effective. Kevin Jones has reintegrated himself as one of the focal points of the offense with the running game. Conversely, the Cardinals running game, which started off hot, has been dreadful over the last few weeks; amassing less than 200 yards in the last three games. Two accurate QBs and great WRs versus two bad coverage defenses makes for a shootout and I like the Lions to come out on top.

Perch’s pick: Lions by 14

QB: Jon Kitna
QB: Kurt Warner

RB: Kevin Jones
RB: Edgerrin James
WR: Roy Williams
WR: Calvin Johnson
WR: Shaun McDonald – 6 rec 80 yds TD
WR: Anquan Boldin
WR: Larry Fitzgerald

Rundown: Both teams on the rebound after losses. The Chargers gave up a record 296 rushing yards and 3 rush TDs to Adrian Peterson last week in a 35-17 loss to the Vikings. The Colts dropped their first game of the season; giving up a fourth quarter lead to fall 24-20 to the Patriots. Both of these teams are talented, no doubt; but only one these teams has the proper vision, mental toughness and coaching to rebound from this loss properly and that team is the Colts. San Diego has been a shell of the 06 Chargers this year. The running game has had difficulty, the defense has had difficulty. Personally, I don’t believe that Norv Turner was the answer over Marty Schottenheimer. Colts embarass the Chargers in this one and affirm themselves as the number two seed in the AFC.

Perch’s pick: Colts by 20

QB:Philip Rivers
QB: Peyton Manning
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson
RB: Joseph Addai
WR: Reggie Wayne

WR: Chris Chambers
WR: Vincent Jackson

TE: Dallas Clark
TE: Antonio Gates
