So, you may be asking yourself, "Self, is it okay to roll with this guy? Is it fine to start him this week? Or, maybe he should hit the pine?" You are in luck, self. Adam Filadelfo (@Frostt24) is back once again for the patented Fantasy Sports Brain "Fine or Pine" feature.
With week seven staring fantasy owners right in the face, it's time to
get those lineups in. Especially if you have players from the Thursday
night game on your roster. When it comes to setting lineups, owners
always fine or pine over their decisions and The Fantasy Sports Brain is
here to help.
Fine- Tony Romo- The Eagles defense has allowed an average of four
hundred twenty yards per game and Romo and the Cowboys like to air the
ball out. This should be a high scoring affair and because of it, Romo
will have a great fantasy week.
Pine- T.J. Yates- Not only is Yates not a good fantasy option, he faces
the toughest defense on the road in the Chiefs. The Kansas City D has
been the top fantasy defense through six weeks and facing the Texans in
week seven will further cement that.
Fine- Matt Forte- Forte has been a top fantasy back this season and this
week he faces the Redskins defense so that trend should continue.
Through six weeks, Forte has amassed four hundred forty two rushing
yards and three touchdowns to go along with his thirty three receptions
for two hundred forty four yards.
Pine- Stevan Ridley- Coming off a two touchdown game, Ridley gets the
Jets in week seven. The Jets have one of the toughest defenses to run on
so the Patriots figure to throw a lot. There aren't many weeks fantasy
owners should sit Ridley but this week figures to be one.
Fine- Justin Blackmon- In only two games this season, Blackmon has
compiled nineteen receptions for three hundred twenty six yards and a
touchdown. This week he faces the San Diego defense which isn't great
versus the pass. With Cecil Shorts most likely out with a clavicle
injury, Blackmon will receive a ton of targets this week.
Pine- Riley Cooper- Even coming off his week six performance where he
torched Tampa Bay for one hundred twenty yards and a score, Cooper will
not repeat that performance this week. Before week six, Cooper had only
eight receptions for less than one hundred yards and a touchdown. He
isn't reliable every week.
Fine- Tony Gonzalez- Simply put, Tony G may be the best last option in
Atlanta. With a hobbled Roddy White and Julio Jones done for the season,
Gonzalez should see more targets and facing a Tampa Bay defense that
isn't exactly living up to the expectations of many should bode well for
the future hall of fame tight end.
Pine- Joseph Fauria- The only value Fauria has is when he's scoring
touchdowns and that can't be counted on every week. The Lions face a
tough Bengals defense and it will be difficult for Fauria to repeat his
three touchdown performance from last week.
Fine- Seattle- A tough Seattle defense faces a turnover prone Arizona
offense in week seven. Coming off of another game where Carson Palmer
thew multiple interceptions, Seattle should have a field day facing an
offense struggling to score points.
Pine- Indianapolis- Even though the Colts D has played better as of
late, they face the Broncos this week and since no defense has shown
they are capable of stopping the Broncos offense, the Indianapolis
defense should become another causality of Peyton Manning and the
