The 2013-2014 NFL fantasy season got off to one of the most exciting starts in recent memory (unless you have the Ravens D). But with so much that’s happened after just one week, you’re going to need someone special to help keep your fantasy squad up-to-date and ready to win. This week, that person is Jenny (see above).
According to the guys over at FantasySmokeShow, Jenny is the perfect example of the kinds of players you’re going to need to win this season: she’s constantly hot, in peak physical condition, and getting all the looks.
So as you look at last week’s games to prepare for Week 2, just think of Jenny. You’ll be able to see more photos of her at FantasySmokeShow.com.
Fantasy Football Recap Of Week 1 + Must-Make Adjustments Presented By FantasySmokeShow.com
This was the Peyton show. After 7 TDS and 462 yards, you were praying not be to playing against him or any of his wrs this week. Welker, D. Thomas, and J. Thomas tore up the Ravens, each catching 2 TDs. Joe Flacco had good fantasy numbers trying to play catch up all night, while neither team did much on the ground.
Try to pick up TEs Julius Thomas or Dallas Clark off the waiver wire as they will be big part of these offenses moving forward.
As expected, most of the fantasy production came from the Patriots. Brady had a decent game, while both Amendola and Julian Edelman had the first of many big games this season. CJ Spiller and Stevie Johnson both had subpar games.
Each teams’ running attack continued to drive fantasy owners crazy. This was supposed to be Spiller’s year, but Fred Jackson was still heavily featured. And of course Shane Vereen got more carries than the higher draft pick Ridley. Stay away from these running backs for right now.
This was a boring ass fantasy game. Steve Smith and Russell Wilson were the only players that salvaged the day. Even when considering Seattle has one of the league’s best D’s, Cam Newton was a huge disappointment.
Cam will be better next week, but he may never be able to duplicate the huge numbers he had his rookie year. Marshawn Lynch will be back to his Fantasy Beast self next Sunday.
TE Jordan Cameron and not Trent Richardson proved to be the fantasy highlight for the Browns. That won’t be the case every week, but Cameron may be an emerging tight end talent.
The Dolphins high draft picks provided a dud. Mike Wallace and Lamar Miller are already making a case for busts. Brian Hartline had a TD and went over 100yds, so check out the waiver wire if you are desperate for a WR.
A.J. Green had another monster game as he continues to make his case as the best WR in the game. The rookies Gio Bernard and Tyler Eifert didn’t do much this game but should contribute a lot more as the season goes on.
For the Bears, Brandon Marshall kept up his chemistry with Cutler and had a big day. Matt Forte was able to salvage his fantasy day with a second half TD. Forte and Marshall are the only two Bears that you should be starting each week.
Reggie Wayne and Andrew Luck picked up where they left off last season and produced some big numbers. They are in for another big year. The Colts running game sucked as usual, with Vick Ballard getting almost double the carries of Bradshaw.
The good news is Darren McFadden didn’t get injured. The bad news is that he didn’t have a great game against a crappy D. Terrelle Pryor and Rod Streater may be worth a flyer if you’re in a deep league and have room on your bench.
Reggie Bush had a monster fantasy day on the ground and in the air, proving that he can be amazing in this offense. Calvin Johnson had a slow game, but he will dominate the statline soon enough.
Pretty normal game for the Vikings as AP was awesome and Ponder sucked. Peterson had a 78 yard TD on his first touch of the game, while the QB threw his usual 3 INTs. Jerome Simpson had a nice game at WR, but still wouldn’t want to be starting any Vikings wideouts.
The new-look Chiefs certainly looked better, even if they were playing Jacksonville. Charles had a good fantasy day while Dwayne Bowe didn’t have much to do all afternoon. The Chiefs D is also on the rise and could be a good plug and play this season.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say again: the Jags suck. Gabbert will not be their starting QB much longer and MJD is doomed in this offense. Wait for one big game by Jones-Drew and then TRADE him.
This was set up to be a big scoring game and it didn’t disappoint. All of the Falcons except a slightly injured Roddy White had good fantasy days. Look for Atlanta to help out your fantasy team at all positions this season.
Drew Brees went off like always. Darren Sproles led the team in receiving. Both Colston and Graham scored TDS, plus the running game was pitiful. Pretty typical Saints day. This offense is the fantasy motherload and will produce every Sunday.
NY Jets/Tampa Bay
No one expected Kellen Winslow to have a big game, but with 79yds and a TD he was the highlight for NY. Moving forward, he is worth a pick up with the Jets desperate for a spark in the passing game. Neither Ivory or Powell could do a damn thing with the running attack. Hopefully you aren’t counting on this team for your team.
Vincent Jackson threw down a monster game with a 7/154 statline. He is the go to WR on this team and should have weeks like this more often than not. Doug Martin was serviceable but didn’t give the numbers you want from a Top 5 pick. Martin should have a much bigger game this week coming up against the poor Saints D.
The Titans fantasy impact depends mostly on how Chris Johnson performs. And he laid an egg against the Steelers D. His numbers will improve, but there is some concern that he didn’t have a single catch out of the backfield.
The running game in Pittsburgh is in shambles, and who knows if it will get any better until the rookie Bell returns from injury. Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders had good numbers at WR, and that should continue as Roethlisberger tries to move the ball without a rushing attack.
San Francisco/Green Bay
Kaepernick blew up, throwing for over 400 yards and 3 TDs. His main targets Boldin and Vernon Davis are in for a huge year if Kaep keeps performing at this level. Frank Gore at least got on the board with a late TD but didn’t join in the big numbers that his teammates had.
Aaron Rogers was more than solid and would have had an even bigger day if not for a couple badly dropped passes. Jordy Nelson and Cobb each scored and went over the 100 yard mark. Crazy that James Jones didn’t record a catch, but he continues to have that disease of dropping balls that hit his hands.
This usually shi*ty game actually had several fantasy implications. Sam Bradford looked like a usable QB and Richardson will be a quality #2 RB moving forward. Pick up TE Jared Cook NOW if you can, because he will have a good year as Bradford’s top target.
Fitz is BACK! Larry had 2 TDs and obviously enjoyed having a QB that could actually throw the ball in his vicinity. Carson Palmer did what he does best, and threw the ball A LOT. This passing game could be big for fantasy owners all year long.
In a surprise, Miles Austin was the WR that blew up and not Dez Bryant. This won’t be the weekly trend but it was nice to see Austin make a comeback from last years injury. Witten had his usual great game and is the top TE in the league with Gronk out.
I hate Eli. He sucks so bad that he ends up having a monster fantasy game trying to make up for all the mistakes. Victor Cruz danced his way to 3 TDS and Nicks had a big game. It wasn’t all great fantasy news for NY, as David Wilson fumbled twice and also probably fumbled away his starting job.
Michael Vick looked pretty damn good in Chip Kelly’s new high-paced offense. He and Desean Jackson should have great fantasy years if they can stay healthy. The biggest game came from LeSean McCoy with 184 yards and a TD. Shady could be back to his old self and actually be the main beneficiary from the new O.
RG3 struggled in the early on but ended up with some ok stats as the Redskins tried to get back in the game. Leonard Hankerson caught a couple TDs but wouldn’t count on that type of production from him every week. Alfred Morris’s game was shitty and didn’t do anything to help his owners.
Andre Johnson turned in another beast performance with 12 catches and 146 yards. He will do this all year long as Matt Schaub’s main man. Matt Schaub even had a big game which doesn’t happen to often. Foster was unable to get much going on the ground since the Texans were fighting back the whole time.
Phillip Rivers must have been feeling nostalgic cuz he actually had decent fantasy numbers. The 4 TDs made up for the low yardage, but we will wait to see a couple of games before declaring that Rivers is back. Ryan Mathews did ok with a TD and at least he didn’t fumble or get injured. The Chargers shouldn’t be counted on too much this year to help out your team.
