Fantasy Football Pitfalls – Week 16
Happy Birthday Nicole!
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.
Tony Romo - The rocky road continues for Romo as he squares off against the Ravens this week. Rex Ryan will unleash the hounds against Romo meaning he’ll likely have to be peeled off the ground often this week. Not the matchup you want for you fantasy title game.
LaDainian Tomlinson - After two cake matchups (Oakland & Kansas City), LT has to face Tampa Bay. The LT of old was matchup proof, but this the LT of yesteryear. It would be hard to bench him in the title game, but you may have to do just that depending on your options.
Chris Johnson - Like LT, Johnson had a string of nice matchups leading up to the title game. Unfortunately for those counting on him, he faces Pittsburgh this week. That sure puts a damper on things. He’s still playable, but he isn’t an attractive option.
Andre Johnson - AJ is Nnamdi Asomugha’s latest test. With the attention he’ll receive, Houston will likely focus more on Kevin Walter and Owen Daniels. A decoy is not how you want your #1 WR used in the fantasy title game.
Hines Ward - Does Pittsburgh ever catch a break with their schedule? I suppose they play those two awful Ohio teams twice a year, but the rest of their matchups have been brutal. The latest test for the Steelers is Tennessee. I don’t expect a lot of Offense from this game.
