PALLISTER: Fantasy football this week, in open letters
Dear Maurice Jones-Drew,
You should probably stop drafting yourself in your fantasy leagues.
Dear Peyton Manning,
I seem to have reached a point in which mocking you for your postseason failures just isn’t enjoyable anymore. Maybe it’s because you’ve helped me to a 4-0 record. Maybe it’s because my wife is a Broncos fan and mocking you amid this historic early season run results in a death stare.
In any case, I hope you continue to average four TDs a game and finally make it impossible for me to use your playoff record against you (it’s currently 9-11, in case you were wondering) by emphatically winning Super Bowl XLVIII. And don’t forget, you can always ask your little brother for a few pointers if February rolls around and you’re still playing.
Week 4 Lineup Crime: I didn’t really screw anything up last week.
Week 5 Lineup Time: Cincinnati’s offense has to rebound this week, right? I’m banking on Giovani Bernard primarily because I have to with Adrian Peterson on a bye. Let’s hope the Bengals act like BenJarvus Green-Ellis is on a bye. Speaking of rebounds, I expect Aaron Rodgers to play like the elite QB he is against the Lions, so start any and all Packers receivers you may have. I speak for many fantasy owners when I say it would be nice if T.Y. Hilton reached the end zone one of these days. The Colts can’t run on the Seahawks like they did on the 49ers, so I think Andrew Luck finds a way to get his second-year receiver his first TD of the season. If you are desperate at WR, Justin Blackmon against the Rams might pay off. With four solid starting running backs on a bye, the Chargers’ Danny Woodhead is a nice waiver pickup.
