NFL Week 16 Fill-ins

Dec 21, 2007

It’s most likely your Super Bowl.  If you aren’t that lucky, maybe you’re playing for 3rd and your money back.  Maybe you’re just playing for pride.  No matter what, you want to win this week.  If your lineup is hurting, I’m here to offer some other options.

Donovan McNabb
- Chances are you haven’t counted on him for some time.  Well, this week is as good as any as he play New Orleans.  Sure, the Eagles are dead, but they are still playing for pride.

Vince Young - It’s time for VY to shrug off that Madden Curse and put up a solid game agaisnt the J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS.  I get the feeling he runs one in this week.

Najeh Davenport - I see him getting 167 total yards and 2 TDs after Willie Parker breaks his leg.  OK, time to get serious.  Here are my real picks. 
Rudi Johnson -  If I had Rudi, I’d hitch my cart to him this weekend against Cleveland.  He’s been mostly junk this year, but I see him coming through huge for those lucky (or unlucky given his earlier play) enough to have him.
Kolby Smith - Since his first start , Kolby hasn’t been all that impressive.  This week he faces Detroit.  I see Kolby getting a TD as a stocking stuffer.
Lamont Jordan - I’m not loving his matchup against Jacksonville, but if you need a warm body, Jordan is your guy.  If you’re really, really hurting Dominic Rhodes may get you a couple points.

Roydell Williams 
-  He’s played well recently averaging 66 yards and a TD the past three weeks.  I think he has a solid game against Detroit.
Kevin Curtis -  The highlight of my fantasy football season this year was starting Curtis in his 11 catch, 221 yard, 3 TD game against Detroilet.  Curtis has only scored twice since that outburst.  I think this is the weekend he returns to the endzone.  Hopefully, he called up Chad Johnson for celebration ideas since with only 6 TDs, Ocho is sure to have some that he won’t get to this year.

Chris Baker - With wet noodle arm Chad Pennington back in the starting lineup, look for Baker to be busy on Sunday. 

Shaun Suisham
-  Shaun has 9 FGs over the past 4 weeks, including three in the horrible conditions at Giants Stadium last week.  He’ll find it a little cozier in the Metrodump.

- One word.  Atlanta.
Tennessee - Three words.  New York Jets.
Kansas City - One word.  Detroit.
