Junkie’s Week 10 – Hits & Misses

13 11 2011

So, it’s Sunday and I need to get the Hits & Misses down before game-time to make them count!

No frills this time.

No talking about how my week went.

No blubbering on about how sick the situation in Penn State is, we have enough people commenting on that one.

No praying that the Lions sweep the Bears in Chicago today.

No feeling sorry about my fantasy teams and whining about it.

No bragging about my new business TwinStar Media, don’t go look… I dare you not to.


Ok, moving right along folks!

1. QB: Matt Hasselbeck – ESPN Rank 19

He’s struggled a bit as of late after a quick beginning to the year but he has a tasty matchup and you could do worse. He’s smart with the ball and if CJ is “back” he may take a few dump offs for big gains today.

2. RB: Pierre Thomas – ESPN Rank 29

surprisingly, Pierre is the Saints best pure rusher. Watch the film, he’s tough and decisive when running. He’s not getting very many touches but seems to find a way to make his day productive.

3. WR: Jason Avant – ESPN Rank Unranked

With DeSean Jackson struggling to make meetings, it’s time for the sure-handed Avant to step into a more starting role. Look for Maclin to take DeSean’s spot leaving Avant the role of short yardage man, a role he’s used to. Great play in PPR leagues.

4. TE: Brent Celek – ESPN Rank 14

Are you kidding? He’s been a top 10 TE for 3 straight game I believe. It’s time to start trusting Celek a little bit more.

5. DEF: Indianapolis Colts – ESPN Rank 26

Talk about a gamble! I just have to think this defense has seen enough. In my heart of hearts, I want to see the Colts get this win, and if they are going to, it’s going to be because the defense made some big plays. The Jags still start a rookie at quarterback and their wide receivers are nothing to write home about. Hopefully the defensive backs for the Colts can hold up for a few seconds giving the bookends, Mathis and Freeney time for a sack fumble. Something they know a lot about.


To qualify as a hit the players must get to certain benchmarks within the weekly scoring leaders of ESPN standard leagues. Quarterbacks must reach the top 10. Running backs must reach the top 25. Wide receivers must reach the top 30. Tight ends and defenses must reach the top 10. The rankings I use next to the players names are the ranks as of the writing of this article.
