So sometimes lock down corners get the doors blown off by receivers you just wouldn’t expect it from. Or in the case of the Dallas Cowboys corners, get injured and are replaced by second string players. This was the case in the Robbie Anderson 92 yard touchdown. Both Cowboy Cornerbacks were missing and Anderson went off big time. These things cannot be accounted for and if you played Anderson, congratulations. Heres how my selections went this week. It’s a down week if you ask me, one good due to injury and some bad. Trust the process. Thats what its all about, faith in how you make these decisions. If your process is right the results will follow.
Robbie Anderson – projected points 9.2 – Actual 21.0. Up 128%.
Golden Tate – projected points 12.3 – Actual 19.2. Up 56%.
Kenny Golladay – projected points 13.1 – Actual 14.6. Up 11%.
Emmanuel Sanders – projected points 8.9 – Actual 0.5. Down 94.4%
Emmanuel Sanders had only one catch in the first half against the Titans. He left before half time and didn’t return for the second half. I can’t claim victory for that one. The Cowboys Cornerbacks got injured and the Giants decided Tate was the only player capable of catching the pig skin. These things happen. Onward we go to this weeks selections.
This is surprising, very surprising. The hapless Bengals are giving up the least points to opposing wideouts in the league. 28.4 real life points to receivers. They are fourth in the League in giving up Fantasy points to pass catchers. Just 17.4 FPPG on a weekly basis. This has to be because the Bengals cannot defend for toffee and are having the ball ran down their throat. Nevertheless the Jags have one of the most heavily used running backs in Leonard Fournette and he should see plenty of work this week.
Dede Westbrook has come forward into Fantasy relevance once more. His last two weeks have seen him have 11 and eight receptions respectively. We all feared he would vaporise into the abyss once Nick Foles got injured. Fantasy draft darling Dede lost his way but has bounced back recently. D.J. Chark is still the dog for the Jags. With the Bengals allowing a measly amount of Fantasy points to receivers and Chark getting the most looks Dede could suffer this week. Expect the Jags to run the rock and the receivers to score low Fantasy points for your team this week.
Heres to a better week seven for my Lock Down selections.
Until next week, Keep Rushing
