Denver blows. The Chiefs are over achievers. The Bolts defense is a joke. The only thing stopping us from winning this division this year is gonna be Phillip Rivers. I'm predicting he leads all QBs in fantasy point this year. And he may get his big numbers against the 6 games he plays in the division alone.
If I'm not mistaken, and I never am. Anybody who thinks so can lick me from butt to nut. Anyways...Vincent Jackson is healthy and in a contract year. With Gates iffy lately on his own playing status, the combo of Rivers to Jackson is going to get plenty of sportscenter highlights this year. I'm not sold on Ryan Mathews either. Rivers and Jackson are going to put up insane numbers this year. Maybe not Brady to Moss numbers, but enough to just plain outscore every team in our division. Our young (and one disgustingly overpaid corners) despite having the best defensive line pressure in the league to help make Rivers think quick to get the ball out are going to get torched. I know their special teams is a joke. But if we want an automatic playoff bid, we're going to have to get some big hits on Rivers. With out LB depth as this as ever, when Rivers does get pressure, the middle of the field will be loaded with options for him to get bailed out.
So can we outscore the bolts? I doubt it. Jacoby is gonna get pinned 10 deep in the endzone on kick returns thanks to this new bullshit rule. Our O-line will struggle to buy Campbell enough time to get a deep ball loose. And when the deep ball does get tossed, I don't have a hell of alot of confidence that our Wideouts can make a play on the ball. Grinding it out with DMAC and Bushy may keep Rivers off the field for a spell, but they are going to score quickly. I want to see this Denarious Moore get serious playing time. I have zero faith in Chaz Shilens. Reminds me of Jerry Porter with a serious injury bug. Hey-Bey may be in his last season with us. I do like the idea of lining up Jacoby or Taiwan Jones in the slot. I'd also like to see a few trick plays. MCfadden can throw. Hell, maybe report Bruce Campbell as an eligible receiver. Maybe a wildcat or two involving Terrelle Pryor. I'm up for anything.
I'll be drafting Phillip Rivers 1st round in my fantasy draft (I've won this league 3 years in a row). I'll look for McFadden and Vincent Jackson in my next few picks. But both Rivers and Jackson will see us twice this season with no Nnamdi. They are going to tear shit up. I have no faith in our secondary. Hue is gonna have to get crafty. As far as I'm concerned, start Denarious Moore and Murph. Run single back sets. Throw in a few reverses. And send Hey-Bey deep often and just try to overthrow him.
