For those of you who followed PFI last week and our Week Three Fantasy Football Sleepers and Waiver Wire Steals, you capitalized on a touchdown from Johnny Knox, an explosive game from Tashard Choice, and one of Jason Campbell’s biggest fantasy outputs of his career.
My fantasy owners who wrote in were guided in starting Kevin Kolb and up-to-then bust Santana Moss. Both had great fantasy weeks.
But enough tooting my own horn. Onto this week’s closet fantasy studs, starting with the guy who is taking the place of Frank Gore in San Francisco.
1. Glen Coffee—RB—S.F. 49ers
With the loss of Frank Gore for three weeks, Glen Coffee will reap the benefits of Gore’s absence by eating up his carries. One of Gore’s weeks out will be absorbed by the 49ers’ bye week, but the other two are favorable matchups for Coffee.
First Coffee will face the St. Louis Rams, followed by the Atlanta Falcons. Both are prone to giving up yards on the ground in bundles. The 49ers’ offensive scheme will not change with Gore out, so if Glen Coffee is there and you need a running back, he’s the man.
