Fantasy forecast: Time to prepare for fantasy playoffs



Zac Stacy (STL): Pick up

    Last week I told you to put this guy on your radar, this week I’m telling you to put him on your team. Now, he was running against Tennessee, and Daryl Richardson was out, but back-to-back games with over 100 yards rushing and 6 receptions this week means go get him if you can.

Mike James (TB): Pick up

James is more of a “help-me-now” player as Doug Martin may return later this yea. But, with over 150 yards against Seattle’s defense I like his chances going forward. Just don’t expect him to throw a touchdowns pass every week.


    If you are looking for wide receiver help , Marvin Jones is still available in 40 percent of leagues and Harry Douglas is still in 19 percent (which makes no sense). If you are looking to capitalize on Justin Blackmon being out for the Jaguars, look at Mike Brown. He isn’t a must start at all but has posted back-to-back good games even when Blackmon was on the field.

Thursday Night Start ‘em Sit ‘em:

    As always, use your head and don’t start a lesser player that you see here just because I like him or sit your best option because I don’t like him. It's always about playing the odds.


Washington: If I have Robert Griffin III as my primary quarterback, or if he is on your roster and your other quarterback doesn’t have a favorable matchup, I would highly consider playing him as this Vikings D is the second worst in the league at stopping opposing quarterbacks.

    That means Pierre Garcon is probably a favorable play to get some yards, as well as Leonard Hankerson (if he plays, hamstring).

    But, as we saw last week this team likes to pound in touchdowns. Alfred Morris will get the majority of yards and carries, but with the emergence of Darrell Young as a goal-line back, his touchdown production should be limited.
