Fantasy Football Pitfalls – Week 15
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.
Ben Roethlisberger - If you count on Big Ben for your fantasy team, hopefully you have a good alternative for an important fantasy playoff matchup as Pittsburgh faces Baltimore this week. To make matters worse, it’s a road game for Big Ben.
Steve Slaton - The last time he faced Tennessee Slaton had 116 yards and a score. I’m certain that Tennessee will be reminded of that performance a time or two in practice and in film sessions. #20 will be a marked man this week.
Marshawn Lynch - Lynch has improved greatly in recent weeks, but a matchup against the Jets will provide a stiffer test. Plus, it’s on the road where Lynch hasn’t been as good. He’s averaged just 57.7 rushing yards in six road games.
Randy Moss - Moss is the latest WR to go up against Oakland’s Nnamdi Asomugha. Moss is good enough to produce against anybody, but against Asomugha you have to lowere you expectations a bit. The saving grace for Pats fans and Moss fantasy owners is Randy could get up for this game since it’s a chance to stick it to Al Davis and the Raiders.
Derrick Mason - Mason is quietly having another fantastic season for the Ravens. He lit up Pittsburgh back in Week 4 to the tune of eight catches for 137 yards. I am certain Pittsburgh has included him in their gameplan.
