Fantasy Football Pitfalls – Week 10

Nov 4, 2008
I’m going to look at the matchups each week and pick five fantasy starters that could be in for a tough week.  Here’s a look at players who could struggle this week.

Quarterback
Peyton Manning
- Manning makes a return trip to the Pitfalls.  Last time, he responded with 271 yards and 3 TDs vs. Baltimore.  Personally, I wouldn’t mind the same results as he’s my QB in my main league.  However, I’m not predicting a good week for Eli’s big brother vs. Pittsburgh.

Running Backs
Steve Slaton
- There sure have been a lot of good Rookie RBs this year.  Slaton is definitely one of them. I don’t think this is his week though as he goes up against Baltimore.  His ability to catch the ball out of the backfield help him with total yardage, but I’m not expecting him to score a TD this week.

Marshawn Lynch - Lynch is taking his game on the road.  The destination is Foxboro.  First Place will be on the line.  I’m guessing the Patriots get up for this one making it tough on Lynch and the Bills to get going on Offense.

Wide Receiver
Plaxico Burress
- Plaxico takes on the Eagles this week, assuming he doesn’t do something to get him suspended along the way.  Besides that risk, Philly’s secondary creates a tough matchup for Plax.  I’m not banking on a strong performance out of him.

Hines Ward - The Colts aren’t having the year that their fans have grown accustomed to, but their Pass D has been strong all year long.  That’s not a good thing for Hines Ward, who faces them this week.  The one thing he has going for him is the fact that it’s a home game.  I still don’t expect a strong showing.
