HG - It is finally here, fantasy football playoffs start in mere hours. For those of you who survived the rough regular season with injuries and a dearth of quality running backs, congratulations as now it is time to go win your league.
Last week’s start of the week was DeMarco Murray of the Dallas Cowboys. As bad as the Bears are at stopping the run, the game plan for the Pokes should have been run, run some more and run again until the game is over. Murray did rush for 146 yards, but the Dallas offensive brain trust went away from the obvious weakness of Chicago. DeMarco had only 18 carries and averaged 8.1 yards a pop. He should have had over 200 yards and some rushing touchdowns, but for his production we will call this as a win for the Fantasy Guru’s start of the week.
This week’s start of the week is Nick Foles. Foles continues to be playing among the greats of fantasy. In tough conditions last week at home Foles struggled in the first half, but came back with a strong second half going 7 for 12 for 144 yards and a touchdown. He led the Eagles back from a 14 point deficit. Nick Foles now has 20 TD passes and only one interception all season. He faces a Viking defense that has given up 300+ passing yards in 2 of their last 3 games. Minnesota is also allowing the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks at 22.8 per game. Foles should have a big game in the dome.
