Holy Muscle Hamster - Week 9 had is fair share of surprises one of which would be Doug Martin aka the muscle hamster going ballistic for 251 rushing yards and 4 touchdowns. Those numbers are absolutely absurd both in real life and for fantasy football purposes. I am here to tell you not to sell high on Doug Martin. For the remainder of the season Doug martin and the bucs will only face a top ten rush defense ONE time! After this week’s tilt with the chargers it should be smooth sailing for the Muscle hamster. If you bought in early, enjoy the ride! If you faced him last week quit licking your wounds and get ready for week 10!
Michael Vick is Done – Last Monday’s game against the porous saint’s pass defense was Michael Vick’s last chance to make a comeback in 2012. His lone touchdown pass was very much on a broken play and somewhat fluky. Michael Vick didn’t fumble this time around but he sure did throw a pick 6 that may not have been his fault but certainly counts against him. If you can find a buyer, maybe the guy who owns Aaron Rodgers this week, I would sell Vick for pennies on the dollar. The only “weapon” I still want on this Philly offense is Lesean McCoy who remains a top 5 fantasy football running back and had a decent game yardage wise.
Pass on the Tampa Bay Defense – Not only should you “pass” on the Tampa Bay defense for fantasy football purposes but you should also consider passing on them in real life! Through 9 weeks only the Washington Redskins have given up more yards through the air making me officially all in on the San Diego Chargers in week 10. Through 9 weeks only 3 passers have failed to eclipse 300 yards passing on these buccaneers. Those three quarterbacks were Tony Romo, Brady Quinn and Christian Ponder; two of which get a pass for being inferior passers. Carson Palmer hung 414 on the Bucs last week and I see no reason Phillip Rivers won’t do the same.
