KeithyP's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Philip Rivers @ Rams - St. Louis gives up big passing plays and that is just what San Diego is capable of doing. The Chargers average 9.6 yards per pass attempt, highest in the league, on 32 plays over 20 yards and 6 over 40. Rivers should have a great day as should his big name receivers.
22 of 37 for 249 Yards with a TD and INT.
Fav RB Matchup - LaDanian Tomlinson @ Broncos - New York keeps on rolling, and LT has been a HUGE part of this surge. While the Jets defense has struggled against the pass this year, they should be able to put enough pressure on Kyle Orton to get some 3 and outs and give the Offense the ball again. LT will see his touches and keep the Jets league leaders in yards gained as the Broncos defense is near the bottom against the run.
16 Rushes for 55 Yards with 2 TDs. 2 Catches for 12 Yards.
Fav WR Matchup - Percy Harvin vs Cowboys - Dallas will have to focus on AP first, Randy Moss second and will have trouble covering Harvin. Harvin should have his way with the 'Boys secondary who are just average and only have 9 sacks through 4 games. He also have a team leading 30 targets and 17 receptions and has been a threat in the return game.
3 Catches for 21 Yards. 2 Rushes for 18 Yards.
Fav TE Matchup - Tony Gonzalez @ Eagles - Philly can get to the QB and that will force Matt Ryan to make quick decision. Tony G should be the beneficiary of these throws. The veteran is playing well under potential but he is second on the team in Targets and Yards behind only Roddy White. The Eagles have given up passing TDs and 15 plays over 20 yards so you can beat them through the air.
3 Catches for 19 Yards with 2 TDs.
Fav DEF Matchup - Raiders @ 49ers - Oakland's defense has been a nice surprise in the first quarter of this season and San Francisco's offense has been terrible. That is a great combination for the Raiders and their owners. They allow just under 200 yards a game through the air, however the Run defense has not been there and they are right at the bottom in rushing yards allowed. Luckily for them the Niners do not run the ball and when they do, they only average 3.7 yards. The Raiders are making a playoff push this year in one of the tightest divisions in football. Broncos(2-3) Chiefs(3-1) Chargers(2-3) and Raiders(2-3)
17 Points Allowed, 2 Sacks.
KeithyP's Upset of the Week(2-3)
Chiefs @ Texans
LiLbRo's Favs of the Week
Fav QB Matchup - Peyton Manning @ Redskins - Peyton threw 0 TDs last week against the Chiefs but should bounce back nicely this week against the Skins who rank 31st against the pass. Looks like he might be without Joseph Addai and Donald Brown, which leaves him with only Mike Hart, so the Colts might look to just throw the ball all game. He has Garcon back as well which gives him another option, so look for Peyton to throw for 300+ with 3 TDs in this one.
25 of 38 for 307 Yards with 2 TDs and 0 INTs.
Fav RB Matchup - Frank Gore vs. Raiders - The 49ers need a spark and a win this week and with the struggles of Alex Smith they should keep feeding Gore the ball. The Raiders give up nearly 150 yards per game on the ground and the 49ers should take advantage of that. Gore should rack up the rushing yards as well as getting involved in the screen game and should find the endzone a few times.
25 Rushes for 149 Yards.
Fav WR Matchup - Wes Welker vs. Ravens - No Randy Moss for Brady anymore, which means he has to rely on Deon Branch for the long ball. The Pats might go with short quick passes against this physical Ravens defense which means Welker might see a lot of targets and have one of his 10 catch games. Will benefit anyone in a PPR league.
7 Catches for 53 Yards.
Fav TE Matchup - Antonio Gates @ Rams - Like I said I wont pick anyone else until Gates fails me. He's scored in all 5 games this year, and faces a soft Rams defense this week. I wouldnt be surprised if he has another multiple TD game.
2 Catches for 12 Yards. Left game late in the 1st half, and did not return with an ankle injury.
Fav DEF Matchup - Steelers vs. Browns - The Steelers are home against the Browns and have Big Ben back. The crowd will be rockin' and the Browns are going with rookie Colt McCoy this week. McCoy will have to face the physical defense of the Steelers in his first start and deal with crowd noise. He will be hit a lot and should commit rookie mistakes as the Steelers win big.
10 Points Allowed, 2 INTs, 1 Fumble Recovery, 5 Sacks.
