Week 4 Fantasy Recap
October 2, 2012
The Living Legends pick up a 236-184 victory against team “Don’t Tripp.” Another solid victory overall for my squad as 5 players scored 20+ fantasy points. I still maintained a tie for 1st place in my division after the 1st quarter of the season. However, I am concerned about QB Tony Romo as of late. After a strong performance in Week 1, Romo has experienced a dip in production, hopefully my backup Jay Cutler can build on Monday night’s performance and continue to click with WR Brandon Marshall.
Jay Cutler: This was the bounce back performance I was looking for from Cutler. He completed 75% of his passes for 275 yards, 2 TDs, and 0 interceptions. His 34 fantasy points was the highest scoring output on my team this week.
Brandon Marshall: Marshall found the endzone again this week, and caught 7 passes for 138 yards. He only has 2 touchdowns this year though, and his play has been erratic much like his QB Jay Cutler. Their production relies on their performance, and hopefully they can continue to get better while becoming consistent fantasy players for the remainder of the season.
Stevan Ridley: Stevan Ridley has cemented himself as the number 1 option in the Patriots rushing attack. This week against the Bills, Ridley rushed for 106 yards and 2 TDs. He has embraced his role and produced well for me this fantasy season.
Tony Romo: Romo’s production hasn’t been the same since the Cowboy’s week 1 victory against the NY Giants. Last night against the Bears, Tony was awful. Even though he threw for 300+ yards, he threw a career high 5 interceptions and looked lost against the Bears defense.
Martellus Bennett: After scoring a touchdown in every game, Bennett failed to score against the Eagles and only had 1 catch. The Philly defense paid a lot of attention to Bennett in this game and made sure he didn’t beat them. To add insult to injury, Martellus had a 20+ yard catch called back due to an offensive holding penalty.
Bruce Irvin: After terrorizing Aaron Rodgers last week, DE Irvin was quiet this week and put up a fantasy goose egg. He’s having typical growing pains for a rookie defensive lineman. He is apart of a very disruptive unit in Seattle, and I’m sure coach Pete Carroll will but him in positions to be successful going forward…
With some NFL sources saying Santonio Holmes could be out for the year, I decided to look for another WR. I took a chance on rookie WR Travis Benjamin. The youngster for the Cleveland Browns has showed promised lately. He has tremendous speed, plays special teams, and has been targeted more as the season has progressed. If he continues to gain QB Brandon Weeden’s trust, he could become a solid fantasy option for me down the road.
Team “Travlin All Starz” up next, stay tuned…
