Tyler’s Unqualified Fantasy Corner: Week 7

For somebody as unqualified as me, going 4-2 on my picks last week has me feeling like a genius. Just ask my girlfriend, who beat me this week by a crisp 40 with Corey Clement in the lineup.

Genius.

But I’m not one to dwell on the past. (Especially not that one time my record when I was in high school was 12-1 in the regular season and got blown away in the playoffs, I’m not bitter I swear.)

OK. Onto Week 7.

WHO I WOULD START:

Matt Breida, SF RB

Every week you think Breida will slow down or not play at all, Breida is there..in the end zone..quickly. He is averaging a wildly efficient 6.8 yards on only 63 carries this year. He should get the ball more, and he will. Alfred Morris had a solid 0 rushes against Green Bay. Breida will continue to steamroll, and not even the Rams will slow him down.

WHY I’M WRONG:

It’s the Rams. Of Los Angeles. Who haven’t lost all year. The Rams will blow away the great CJ Beathard early forcing the Niners to throw a million times. Breida won’t do anything. Rams 7-0. You look like a doofus for listening to me.

Tyrell Williams, LAC WR

Williams was having a pretty slow start to the season until his explosion vs. a pretty decent Browns defense. The Charges are starting to roll and ole Phil rivers is starting to get things going. Williams looks to continue to be a deep threat. He toasts Super Bowl 52 hero Malcolm Butler for a 50 yard touchdown Sunday at Buckingham Palace.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Williams won’t separate, Rivers completes 17 passes all to Melvin Gordon, Antonio Gates and Keenan Allen, and the Titans randomly get good again.

Chris Godwin, TB WR

Godwin is having a semi breakout year already. 21 catches and 4 touchdowns already as he begins to gain more and more trust of whoever happens to be playing quarterback for Tama Bay that week. Against Cleveland who just smoked by the Chargers, I think Godwin stays hot with 60 yards on 5 catches and a score this week from Jameis.

WHY I’M WRONG:

The Browns, yes, the Browns, get back on track and put the clamps on James as he continues to get back into mid-season form by throwing to the wrong team 4 times. Godwin can’t create any separation and has 2 catches for less than 30 yards. You lose by 6.

WHO I WOULDN’T START

Deshaun Watson, HOU QB

Watson looked off Sunday. Yes, they won, but he didn’t play like himself. 177 yards and not much offense generated. He’s playing through that cracked rib and partially collapsed lung. I’m no medical professional, but I imagine that hurts and may hinder his ability to move around in the pocket and create plays. Against a feisty Jacksonville defense coming off a BAD loss to the Cowboys, I think Watson struggles.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Watson’s ribs are all healed up and the Jags were exposed as a fraud team last week and Watson launches 4 touchdowns to Will Fuller and Deandre Hopkins. You can’t believe you picked up Andy Dalton for this.

Alex Collins, BAL RB

Collins might be one of the most frustrating fantasy players in the league. High pick, runs hard, and then he gets taken out for a whole series by Buck Allen, who seems to score every time. Collins had a good game last week, however with the Saints on the other sideline this weekend, this could force the Ravens to turn to Flacco to start throwing.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Collins gashes the Saints less than stellar defense and rips off another quick two touchdowns. And you can’t believe you gave Kenyan Drake another chance. Speaking of which…

Kenyan Drake, MIA RB

Not even talking about the fumble at the inch line Sunday, Drake has been extremely frustrating. From his 3 carry 3 yard performance a few weeks back, to 87 year old Frank Gore getting the ball and going for 100 yards, it’s been tough to be Drake guy this year. Trust me, I know. If you’re starting any Dolphin in the backfield, it’s probably Gore.

WHY I’M WRONG:

Drake bounces back and gets 120 yards and 2 scores. Gore doesn’t play and the Dolphins keep rolling.

 

LOL, yeah right.

 

See you next week!
