Here is a list of players who I think will produce the maximum amount of points
at their position for the upcoming week. The scoring system can be found
at the bottom of this article.
Week 5 Comments: I was right on with Kris Brown last week. In some leagues, the
three 50 yard field goals he made could have been worth even more points.
Shockey got his TD and luckily we don't count turnovers against a QB, otherwise
Romo would have nothing.
QB - Tom Brady
Tom Brady grew up idolizing Joe Montana, which means he most likely hated the
rival Dallas Cowboys. Brady's first game in Big D should be a memorable
RB - Larry Johnson
There are a lot of good running back matchups this week (McGahee
against Rams, LT vs Raiders, and Alexander against Saints). However, the Chiefs
have something to really prove in their running game this week especially after
only gaining 10 yards last week. I seriously doubt the Bengals can even
hold Johnson to under 100 rushing yards. I expect a high scoring affair in
WR - T.J. Houshmandzadeh
The Bengals will most likely need to pass the ball this week against the Chiefs
to be successful. T.J. is also the leader this year in looks / touches per
TE - Greg
Griese was looking for rookie tight end a lot last week. He should get a
lot of catches this week as the Vikings are good at stopping the run.
K - Josh Brown
I'm going with the other Brown this week. The Saints defense can't stop anyone.
D - Chicago Bears
This is one of those games where you turn on the game late in the second quarter
and the score is 3-0 Bears.
The Vikings will not even come close to scoring 10 points in this game. The
Bears are fired up after last week's win at Green Bay. If the Vikings get behind
early, this game could get out of hand really fast.
