SLEEPER CHALLENGE WK 8

Another week of the writer's sleeper challenge is here and this week we have a guest writer that has been a friend to the site competing with us. Stephen is the webmaster for a very cool site called thefinestinfantasy.com and he is going to get in our little competition and be scored for this week along side our staff of Ryan, Bill and yours truly (Wes). Again this week we are not going to repeat any of the past 7 week's picks so our list of impact players is shrinking quickly. Feel free to put your own picks in the comments section and matchup against our staff and guest picker for this week. All picks will be below 50% ownership in standard Yahoo Leagues.

Show's Picks
Well it is Halloween weekend so why not go with The Blair White Project, WR for the Colts(8% owned). With A.Collie out with hand surgery and Peytons' favorite target Dallas Clark done for the year the kid fresh off the Colts practice squad a few week's ago will again get a chance at making an impact for the Indy offense. Look for Blair to haul in a TD and 60plus yards receiving.

Everyone throws on the Bengals and even Chad Henne shouldn't be able to mess this one up. Brian Hartline has fallen behind D.Bess in the pecking order as far as WR's go, but this is a great opportunity for him to get his second score of the year and make some noise vs the pass defense challenged Bengals secondary. Look for a TD and 55 yds receiving.

DeadheadBill's Picks

James Jones(6%)


Even though it's a tough matchup--I like Jones this week as a sleeper--he's a big target and if GB cant get the running game going we might see alot of Rodgers airing it out--JJ should be able to be the open man more then once--prediction: 4 catches for 75 yards and a possible score.

Jacob Tamme(7%)

This one is more of a "hail mary"--I'm not expecting Tamme to duplicate the great Dallas Clark's usual numbers, but something tells me w/a banged up Addai that the Colts are gonna throw and throw again--some of them should go Tamme's way--prediction: 4 catches for 44 yards and a score

Ryan's Picks

Jordan Shipley - 8% owned- Looking to build off his strongest game yet as a rookie, the #3 WR for the Bengals is looking to open things up for Carson and take advantage of having T.O. and Ochocinco taking the DBs attention.

Derrick Ward - 10% owned - Against a terrible Indy Run defense that Houston already gashed once this season, look for the Texans to get Ward involved more like he was in their matchup against Oakland where he had 11 Carries for 70+ yards and a TD. Plus the fact that he has 2 TD runs of 30+ yards makes him a nice play knowing he can bust one at any time.

*Ward was also picked by Stephen but Ryan takes priority here for cumulative numbers sake...I am going to let Stephen keep Ward as well and let the WR's sort it out.


Stephen(Finest in Fantasy webmaster) Picks
Derrick Ward-Everyone remembers what Arian Foster did to the Colts in Week 1 so, even though I don’t expect a repeat performance, it’s obvious the Texans are able to run on Indy, and with Ward registering TDs in each of the last 3 games, I think it’s a fair assumption that he’ll keep that streak going.

Anthony Gonzalez- Might be a little partial here to the former Buckeye, but after basically a year and a half of injury problems, he comes back just when the Colts need him the most with Clark out for the season and Collie out for at least a few weeks. Expect Dallas Clark type numbers from him in slot, which means he should be good for at least one score against a terrible Houston secondary on Monday Night.

Good luck fellaz.
