After a lopsided week in our sports writer league last week, this week in fantasy football looks to have many more close matchups.
The week is highlighted with a battle of the undefeateds The Las Vegas Locos (2-0) take on Eazy G (2-0), who stayed undefeated last week after coming back on Monday night to win his second game. Easy G looks to have another big game from wide receivers Antonio Brown and Julian Edleman but needs running backs Lamar Miller and Jeremy Hill to play better. The Locos will be relying on another explosive performance from Julio Jones and the Broncos Defense. He looks for rookie David Johnson to continue to put touchdowns on the board.
Team Morin (1-1) and Mr. Sports Editor (1-1) both look to add a win to their record. Morin brings a struggling Sam Bradford and CJ Anderson to the matchup and looks for them to turn things around while relying on the stable Travis Kelce and LeSean McCoy to carry his team. Editor looks for another explosive game from Emmanuel Sanders and rookie Matt Jones to carry his team to victory.
Slammin Fortes (2-0) look to continue their undefeated streak against Team Poffenberger (0-2). Fortes has been dominating off of the duo of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski. This week he adds James Jones to his lineup, who’s seen three touchdowns in the first two games. Poffenberger looks to Russell Wilson to rip apart a struggling Bears defense, while looking for DeMarco Murray, and Keenan Allen to have big games.
Victory Formation (0-2) will fight to get their first win while Amazing St. Patrick’s (1-1) looks to build on their win from last week. Formation expects a monster game from Ben Roethlisberger, while looking for recent trade item Doug Martin to have a solid game. Patricks’ benefitted from huge games from Larry Fitzgerald and Allen Robinson with Aaron Rodgers putting up big points.
Here So I Don’t get Fined (1-1) will have a tough time winning against Breesus King of the Drews (0-2). Drews have put up big points but just been outscored the past two weeks. This week he brings Le’Veon Bell into action, which will benefit him greatly, with players like Odell Beckham Jr., Chris Ivory, and Randall Cobb he’s making a great push to win this game. Fined will once again be relying on Marshawn Lynch, Justin Forsett and Seahawks D to win this game.
This week looks to be full of close matchups, but like every week, no one knows what will happen, until Monday night is out.
