The one thing we can take away from last week is the only thing Jameis Winston enjoys more than eating “W’s” and sexually assaulting uber drivers is scoring an absurd amount of TD’s, finishing #1 on the week (2/4 time’s I’ve called the #1 QB) Hopefully you took my advice on my stack attack last week because you got that sweet double points from the TB stack. Another thing we learned last week is that Jon Gruden is what Fedora’s are to the male persona, Destructive, embarrassing and still somehow pull more ass than you. That’s my bad for ever believing the Raiders could hang in a game and be relevant, ever.
Locks of the Week:
QB Andy Dalton: This is the 2nd time I’ve gone to the Red Rocket this year and I’ve never felt better about it. The Bengals have taken a massive step forward this year in all aspects on the offensive side of the ball, firing on all cylinders. The weakness on their team is their bottom/middle of the pack defense. This week, they get to play the best offense in football, the Chiefs. 58.5 point over/under that keeps going up means Vegas expects a shootout, and so do I, Put him in with confidence in this plush matchup.
RB Kerryon Johnson: KERRYON MY WAYWARD SON. It’s time everybody, the breakout is here. Theo Riddick is out for this game which releases some of the chains that have burdened Johnson for so long. The Miami Defense, how do I put this, is poopy. This electric running back should get the volume to make him well worth a start in any format.
WR Jermaine Kearse: When this season started , never in a million Gruden’s (Gruden’s = 10 years, my new metric) did I ever think I would talk about this man, but here we are. Quincy Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor are banged up and are likely to miss this game which means a large target volume for the replacement slot receiver for the Jets. The Vikes D might seem intimidating but they give it up like Natives on Thanksgiving to the slot.
TE David Njoku: The Tampa defense is bottom in the NFL to pass catchers of all kinds. Not even kidding 2nd worst to TE’s and 1st worst to WR’s. This game will have a lot of passing volume and Njoku’s 11.5 targets over the past 2 games will continue. Njoku should be a bright light in the dark landscape of starting a tight end.
DST Texans D/ST: Look, these things are a god damn crap shoot. The Jags got blown out by the Cowboys last week and the Bears same with the Dolphins. I’m gonna take the talent on the Texans side of the ball vs Blake ‘Lead the NFL in pick’ Bortles and his injured friends all day
