If the Phins{ can run on the Bolts like they did the Colts, Sproles PT could be limited. I dont' think he will bust, but he may not boom either.
I like Santana Moss, Cooley, and Campbell to have pretty nice stats. The Lions are allowing 80% completion rate and have givin up a ton of TD passes. If Campbell doesn't turn it around this week, the Skins should cut him.
Beanie Wells has a chance to boom this week. The Colts played Monday on the east coast and have to go to Arizona. If the Cards were paying attention, the Colts run D can be beaten to pulp by power running game. Fitz, Boldin, Breaston and Warner will insure that LBs don't crowd the middle...so.
Ryan Grant of the Packers should have a great day vs the Rams. It's the Rams - see Lions pass D. And they are coming off of a loss in which their QB didn't look that good. Could be time the Pack got back to basics.

What if his reasoning is 100% wrong, and his results are 100% right? Week 3... the season is way too young to be on ANYONE'S case for their predictive measures.

For example: IMO Thomas Jones is the definition of underappreciated. He's a solid RB2 who spikes into RB1 numbers more frequently than he dips into absolute bust numbers. He plays through injuries that routinely sideline other RBs. But make no mistake... he's 31 years old, has a CRAP TON of miles on him (so there's no argument that like a Ricky Williams or a Fred Jackson, he's fresher than his age would indicate) and most importantly, he's going up against what is currently ranked as the #2 rushing defense in the NFL this weekend.

So "below average player" may be a worthless insight. But if he's right about his prediction, then it doesn't matter. The odds are that even if your side of the argument is correct, TJones is NOT in for a good week, so what's the point of getting your panties in a bunch?


Talk about 'turding up a thread'?

-Ok dad I'm sorry to have caused any pr-pr-pr-problems, dad, I-I-I-I mean Sir.

Your a joke and 2K knows I was messing around, like half of the people on here. I think its pretty much BS how some people in here think just because they have 'X' amount of posts that they own something, go to most all other threads and read a big Bigfoot and just see how many 'turd up the thread'. This forum is becoming more and more overridden with jerk offs just looking to get their jollies off trying to bash someone else. Like I say 2K KNOWS it was a joke because of last weeks fiasco. Hell roll with the punches dude, and if you wanna attempt at pointing me out in a crowd next time do it in a PM, that is of course what its there for, rather than 'turding up the thread'.

The Darren Sproles pick is simply that he has yet to prove that he can't boom when he gets 15+ touches, so I'll keep going with him unless he proves otherwise. Nobody liked the Sproles pick last week vs BAL, but I really believe this guy is defense-proof. I mean, he did it vs the Steelers in a game that mattered last year (DIV playoffs)

I mentioned Chuck Norris b/c there were several jokes about that pick last week related to Chuck Norris, but actually, I think Chuck Norris is a good analogy for the fantasy enigma that is Darren Sproles.

As far as I know there was no argument between myself and 2K, so don't necessarily know where your getting that from. Fatfoot is actually the one that tried to stir stuff up... so go ahead and go talk to him. ;-D

What do you guys think about Chris Johnson going up against the Jets this week. Speaking about DEF proof, I know he was held to 50ish yards by PIT but he has that game breaking speed that I want to gamble with this week. Boy, Gore and Johnson get to tear up shoddy defenses and now go against Minn and the Jets...I'm actually trying to sell high on CJ and Gore..

I always see the Jets overload one side of the line and go after the QB (forcing a throw within 2 seconds), at the same exact point in time play extra-tight coverage anticipating the short pass. Chris Johnson may in fact be the perfect answer to this playcalling. If at anytime they overload, Collins should then check down to a rush right up the middle, or off tackle opposite way. It just takes 1 run for CJ242 to not be a bust, so I'm very uncomfortable to call him a bust on any week given the overaggressive playcalling by Rex Ryan, although I do feel that CJ242 have a pretty good share of games where no TDs are scored.

No offense taken btw from Bazzy. It's all good, and I'd like to hear some predictions to contradict my predictions actually.

Update: K. Moreno no longer a boom as he is Questionable with groin injury.
