Fantasy Football Pitfalls – Week 4
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.
Brian Griese - If you think you can just plug Griese in and expect similar numbers as last week, you’ll be sadly mistaken. Green Bay will provide a much better game plan to limit Griese and Antonio Bryant. I look for him to throw at least a couple of picks and under 250 yards.
Stat Line: 15 of 30 for 149 yards, TD, 3 INTs
Adrian Peterson - He’s been running wild. Am I off my rocker? He didn’t look himself for much of the Carolina game (although he still managed close to 80 yards). He has to take his show on the road vs. a tough Tennesse Run D. I see another subpar game for All Day.
Stat Line: 18 carries for 80 yards, 2 TDs, 4 catches for 21 yards
Chris Johnson – In case you haven’t figured it out, this is going to be a clash of two incredible Run Defenses. LenDale White may reach paydirt, but Chris Johnson is going to be in for a LONG day. His saving grace could be the screen pass.
Stat Line: 17 carries for 61 yards, 2 TDs, 3 catches for 14 yards
Torry Holt - Buffalo’s Pass D has been solid. They allowed 156 passing yards, over half of which came on a 84 yard TD strike. They have to go on the road to St. Louis, but I’m not getting a warm feeling for Bulger, Holt, and the Ram passing game.
Stat Line: 4 catches for 65 yards
Roddy White - Roddy had a solid game this week, but they were playing Kansas City. Carolina should present a much more difficult test for Roddy. They are playing on the road and against a tough D. This isn’t Roddy’s week to dominate.
Stat Line: 7 catches for 90 yards
