Last week a few injuries happened that quickly changed the fantasy football landscape for next few weeks, rendering only two of my picks viable. The first injury was to Rashad Jennings, which dramatically altered Andre Williams’ impact in the Giants win over the Falcons, and the second was Matt Cassel starting over Teddy Bridgewater, which impacted Jarius Wright’s production. Here’s what we were left with:
– ESPN had Eli Manning going for 15 points, and I thought was low. It was spot on. Point: ESPN
– ESPN had Frank Gore going for six points, which I thought was also low, and he ended up with 10. Point: SportsGrid
That brings my cumulative 2014 record for accurately projecting a three-or-more-point over/under for ESPN’s worst fantasy projections to 8-10, with most of my misses being right on the cusp. Here’s what I’m dialing up for this week’s action.
