The biggest tip I can offer for this week is pay attention to the injury report. Last week there were quite a few injuries that went under reported and have resulted in some interesting shakeups especially among the RB position. Also, notice that there are some marquee matchups this week including the Giants/49ers, Packers/Texans, Patriots/Seahawks and Broncos/Chargers. These matchups will tempt you to bench some of your better players for those with seemingly easier matchups. Bad idea. Big time players step up in big time games. The road to a fantasy football championship ain’t always easy my friends, but that is why I bring you the week 6 rankings:
I get a kick out of all the folks in the fantasy sports industry who go absolutely berserk over making a right decision one week into the season. My best advice to anyone is be wary over the ones who beat their chest the most over one or more of their predictions. In my experience those are the ones who are overcompensating for a lot of very bad advice and trying to pretend like one good call outweighs all of the bad. Well it doesn’t work that way and most importantly we don’t work that way. Fantasy Alarm is about advising our readers/listeners/subscribers how to win championships. You won’t hear too much about the fact that we were advocating that Adrian Peterson would be ready for the start of the season as far back as June. You won’t hear about us telling everyone to watch out for Russell Wilson this summer. Nor will you hear about our week 1 predictions of Tony Romo, Sidney Rice or Stevan Ridley. All we do is win and guide our people to championships. That journey continues this week with our official Week #2 Rankings:
How great was it to see football again last Sunday? Well, Sunday, Thursday, and Monday! There were a bunch of big disappointments led by Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, and Peyton Hillis, so what will we see in Week 2? Will Ray Rice put another great week up? Is Tim Hightower for real in Washington? What can we expect from Chris Johnson in Week 2? Is Arian Foster healthy enough to play on Sunday and can Beanie Wells put more stats on the board and continue his breakout season? You always have to be deep at running back because inevitably injuries are going to strike like they did for Steven Jackson and Knowshon Moreno, so be sure you pay attention to games on Sunday. When you are setting your lineups for the upcoming week be sure that you take a look at the following running back rankings.
