Week three of the NFL season is over, and I had a pretty good heaven/hell prediction last week. I correctly picked on Michael Vick, Darren McFadden, and somewhat on Mike Tolbert, and Brett Favre. I also correctly placed Andre Johnson and Jahvid Best into fantasy hell. After a rough first few weeks, I have finally settled in with my heaven and hell picks.
This week, I have received many suggestions on who to put in this article and have come to a decision on what players will perform well. So, without any further ado, here is this weeks edition of fantasy Heaven/Hell
Fantasy Heaven (Start Em)
Michael Vick (Philadelphia Eagles)- I am on the Michael Vick bandwagon until he proves me wrong. Every week, I put him on the fantasy heaven list, and every week he rewards me with success. He is facing the Washington Redskins this week, in Donovan McNabb's return to Philadelphia.
The Redskins are giving up the fourth most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, and the fourth most to wide receivers. Look for Vick to have another monster game, as he continues to have a monster season. He will have 300 total yards and 3 touchdowns this week against the Redskins.
Peyton Manning (Indianapolis Colts)- Yes, Peyton Manning is a must start every week, and probably the number one fantasy player each year. This week, however, is a MUST start. Manning has been absolutely on fire lately tearing opposing defenses apart, and putting up huge fantasy numbers.
The Jaguars defense has been horrid, especially against the pass. Michael Vick exploded against the Jags, so Manning will have no trouble in this game. Look for Manning to have at least 350 yards passing and 2 touchdowns.
Austin Collie (ndianapolis Colts)- See Peyton Manning. Also, Garcon is still out, and Collie is the NFL's leading receiver. He is a must start. Look for Collie to have 100 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars.
Peyton Hillis (Cleveland Browns)- Everytime Peyton Hillis is called upon to produce at the running back position, he usally does, and last week was no exception. Hillis had 144 yards on 22 carries and a touchdown last week, and he should put up stats similar to that this week.
The Bengals have a pretty good run defense, but if you saw Hillis last week, do not expect him to slow down any on Sunday. He will have 100 yards rushing and one touchdown.
Fantasy Hell (Sit Em)
Maurice Jones-Drew (Jacksonville Jaguars)- Jones-Drew has gotten off to a very slow start this season, and is putting up very average numbers. He has only rushed for 217 yards this season, and do not expect this to change against the Colts who have a very solid run defense. Look for Jones-Drew to only have 60 yards and no touchdowns.
C.J. Spiller (Buffalo Bills)- Spiller will not repeat his performance of last week with two touchdowns. He is a rookie who has been inconsistent and last week was his first breakout game, but do not look for him to repeat this against the Jets, who have a very tough defense. Look for Spiller to rush for under 40 yards.
That is it for this week, look every week for players in my fantasy heaven/hell.
