Patriots Fantasy Football Matchups: Week 5

Posted: 13th August 2019 by liny in Allgemein
 vs Indianapolis Colts As an avid fantasy football participant Youth Isaiah Wynn Jerseys , I plan to start a weekly analysis of the New England Patriots and their current matchup in terms of fantasy football. This is my analysis and estimations of stats heading into week 5. Good luck with all of your match-ups!Quarterbacks Ahhhh, everyone can take a deep breath now. Patriots fans can go back to listening to sports radio, back to wearing throwback Tom Brady jerseys, and revived those Super Bowl dreams! Better yet, we play against a struggling Indianapolis Colts tonight. Now, I am one of those fans who enjoys Thursday night football games, unless it is the Patriots. I hate the injury risk and the potential to see anything less than 100% different than what we might see if the game was played on Sunday instead. However, it is a nice mid-week exposure to football and always fun to watch for fantasy football purposes, so let’s dive in! Does it seem possible that the last time the Patriots played the Colts was in 2015? It seems like just about every year we battle them early in the playoffs or have a post bye week matchup. However, in the past couple battles between Andrew Luck and Tom Brady, one quarterback has generally been more successful. You guessed it Pats fans, Tom Brady! Postseason Luck sucks eggs, where regular season Luck has been decent. Looking ahead to tonight, Brady is a must start with Edelman coming back. The robin to his batman. I haven’t been this excited for a player to return since potentially Gronk back in the day. Luck should have minimal luck tonight, so I would leave him on the bench. Final Prediction: Tom Brady: 333 yards, 3 touchdownsAndrew Luck: 270 yards, 2 touchdowns, 2 interception Tight Ends Early reports show that Gronkowski is going to play through his ankle injury and suit up tonight, exactly how many snaps is a question though. Either way, start Gronk. This offense is getting up to full speed Isaiah Wynn Jerseys Stitched , and when that happens, every offensive player is elevated. On the blue and white side of the ball, Eric Ebron has been benefitting from a Jack Doyle injury and with TY Hilton sitting out tonight, should have a pretty good game. Ebron has scored in 3 out of the 4 games so far this year and has been targeted double digits these past two games. Final Prediction: Rob Gronkowski: 4 receptions, 55 yards, 1 touchdownEric Ebron: 7 receptions, 76 yards, 1 touchdown Running Backs One of the bright spots in a perfect bounce back game last week was the running backs for the Patriots. Sony Michel and James White dominated at their specialty and proved this backfield can work. Fair warning, we’ve seen this before *cough, Jonas Gray, cough*, where one week the backfield rules and the next game, they are non-existent. While I can guarantee neither of these RBs will have a Gray-like disappearance, I just cautious those fantasy owners wanting to trade the Kings ransom for one of these RBs. With the return of Edelman, James White will suffer the most as Julz will take a good chunk of his receiving targets. Both RBs can be started this week. As far as the Colts RBs, it is a gamble between Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkes. My vote would be on Hines in the flex since he gets more of the receiving targets Final Predictions:James White: 22 rushing yards, 4 receptions, 47 receiving yardsSony Michel: 72 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown Nyheim Hines: 22 rushing yards, 6 receptions Youth Duke Dawson Jerseys , 67 receiving yards, 1 touchdown Wide Receivers Queue up Public Service Announcement by Jay Z and watch the goosebumps rise as Tom Brady and his main man, Julian Edelman run out together tonight. This will be a special moment all around, not just because Edelman is back, but because he is playing with Gronk for the first time since 2016! Now throw into the mix Josh Gordon, my goodness, this offense could potentially be one of the best the Patriots ever had. I liked what I saw last week out of Josh Gordon and from all the praise we have heard out of Patriots camp, I am very optimistic about Gordon fitting in. Start Edelman and Gordon this week. Consider Dorsett in the flex and leave Chris Hogan on the bench. You can also feel comfortable starting Colts Ryan Grant since T.Y. Hilton will be out, Luck will not have many options to go to tonight. Final Prediction:Julian Edelman: 5 receptions, 56 receiving yards, 2 touchdowns Josh Gordon: 3 receptions, 42 receiving yardsPhillip Dorsett: 3 receptions, 37 yardsRyan Grant: 8 receptions, 77 receiving yards, 1 touchdown Defense Ok, I gave the Patriots defense another chance last week, and they did not disappoint. We will roll with them again this week and see if true adjustments have been made. I’ve said before, the talent is there, they just need to execute, and they will be fine. Besides Duke Dawson Jerseys Stitched , Andrew Luck is almost always good for an INT or two. Waiver wire hunting this week brings me to San Francisco playing at home against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are a mess on offense and can implode at any time. Just have to hope David Johnson doesn’t take over. While we’ve already established this week that the Kansas City Chiefs defense is more toothless than the Abominable Snowman in that Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Christmas movie from back in the day…(get it? Cause Hermie the elf steals all his teeth? Get it? Get it?? No wonder half of us are terrified of the dentist)….it sure is nice to know the Patriots offensive line is flexing on everyone a little bit going into the game all of America’s talking about this weekend.(Note: ‘game all of America’s talking about’ isn’t just homer hyperbole; they had a question on the Dan Patrick Show yesterday on whether you’d rather watch Pats-Chiefs this Sunday or every other game this weekend (meaning if you watch Sunday Night Football, you can’t watch any of the other games)…guess what everybody chose)Fair is fair, since your faithful keyboard quarterback over here spent most of last season praying that Tom Brady’s recovery PJ’s were legit given the pounding he was taking, we’ve got to give them the props they deserve when they’re playing like a top-10-level brick wall in front of the GOAT.Which they are.Last week, we pointed out that Tom Brady hasn’t been sacked since that part in Week 3 where they jumped into the pool with their cell phone in their pocket, and Pro Football Focus’s offensive line grades are here to confirm that it’s not just you, this O-line might actually be good.How good? Trent, Joe, David, Shaq, and Marcus grade out well enough to be ranked 9th overall in PFF’s offensive line rankings this week. These are assessments for every team’s offensive line through the season so far, keep in mind, so New England faceplanting through weeks 2 and 3 is all in there too. Meanwhile, as I write this, and I take absolutely no pleasure in having to break the news here, Nate Solder is doing…not great things:Back to our boys up front: PFF has New England’s offensive line graded as the 9th-best unit in football right now. Shot/chaser – they’re also graded as better than the Dallas Cowboys, who, correctly or not, are usually referred to as the manliest of the manly when it comes to O-line wrecking crews.Here’s PFF’s grades for the guys individually:Left Tackle: Trent Brown, 61.0Left Guard: Joe Thuney Womens N’Keal Harry Jersey , 70.0Center: David Andrews, 71.8Right Guard: Shaq Mason, 72.8Right Tackle: Marcus Cannon, 61.7And here’s their notes on the guy who’s probably picking up the dinner check for everyone for a while, the newly extended Shaq Mason:Four pressures allowed by Shaq in five games. From a fourth-round pick that ran a triple-option offense in college. Drink it in, it always goes down smooth.Without knowing too much about the Ancient Aliens technology that PFF uses to grade offensive line play, it’s also encouraging that the interior of the line appears to all be on the same page and playing at a high level. Sure, there’s been mistakes

Sure, there’s been mistakes, and there’s been plenty of times they’ve been beaten and Sony Michel or James White’s been stacked up for no gain, but at the same time, you get three guys like Thuney, Andrews, and Mason playing together for the third straight season now, and that’s what that whole “trust” thing is all about.Enjoy your weekend, everyone, and maybe just go ahead and call out of work on Monday now. Pats-Chiefs AND Red Sox-Astros Game 2, and…yeah, they’re both at home.Never take these runs from these teams for granted.
