This blog was designed to provide wavier wire tips each week for fantasy players who need players to start off of free agency. Here are LA40's weekly picks.
NOTE: monitor all players status until game time
FANTASY SLEEPERS LIST! ALL PLAYERS AVAILABLE IN FANTASY FREE AGENCY!!:
QB Alex Smith v. WAS - Do not bother monitoring his status He will start, and is a fantasy must start.. unless you have Eli or someone big with a soft matchup, Alex is a reliable #1 QB this week and a great #2 QB in super flex money leagues against a redskins team that is putting dirty Mike Shannyzz job in jeopardy.
RB K. Moreno v. OAK - Monitor MaGahee's injury status up until game time, if you have a better option and MaGahee is starting, conduct a risk reward analysis on the players and the respective opposing D's.
RB D. Thomas v. KCC - If He is active start in this softer matchup, limited participation all week with a sore hammy.
RB C. Ogbonnaya v. HOU - If Hillis is out what ever the fu*k his name is..(Og'yy), is a must start!! Facing who are we kidding (HOU)? There beginning to look a lot like a team Denny Green thought He saw a few years back and dirty Colt and the boys might not let'em off the hook..lol.
RB/KR L. Stephens-Howling v. STL - Stevie-Howellz will be hooting like a wolf on a full moon against a STL team that will likely be without Sam Bradford (DNP), monitor his situation up to game time because if Sam is active this start looks a lot more risky, oh, did I remember to mention that Stephens-Howling also appeared on the injury report in a limited capacity however I believe He will be active, but monitor this along with Mr. Wells (limited participation Thursday).
WR V. Cruz v. NE - The Patriots are despicable against the pass and regardless if Nicks is active or not, give Cruz a go, 99.4 points on season so far, he is a #3 WR on the NYG depth chart, a low end #1 WR in Fantasy Football!!!!
I will answer questions up until game time on my FB wall:
