We have NEVER given away a seat in the World Championship before, until THIS WEEK. That's right. Whether you're coming to Vegas and drafting with us LIVE on opening weekend, or you're sitting at home in the comfort of your jammies, you could become the next Fantasy Football World Champion. This year's Main Event boasted the biggest league prizes in the world, $12,500 per league with a $150,000 Grand Prize. We're also giving away as a consolation prize, a FREE entry into the 10th annual Rotobowl Tournament.
Let's get right to this week's Secret Stars. Putting one or two of these Secret Stars in your lineup will allow you a lot of flexibility with the rest of your lineup to get the Calvins, Gordons and Marshalls on your squad.
TEN QB - Ryan Fitzpatrick $5,500 vs JAX – 35 fantasy points last week for Fitzy. There's a good chance he keeps things rolling on the road in Jacksonville. The Jags have allowed six of the last seven QBs to produce multiple TDs and 23 fantasy points.
El Cheapo – HOU QB - Matt Schaub $5,300 – Audtion time for Matt Schaub as the Texans invite the high powered Broncos to town. Schaub is likely playing for his future in a high profile game this week, so expect the best that Schaub has to offer in a game where they'll likely be behind in the second half and throwing.
JAX RB - Jordan Todman $4,400 vs TEN –He had a great debut as a starter -- 25 carries and 109 yards with four catches with 44 yards. Kid is 5-9 and runs a 4.4 40. Get him in your lineup in both GPPs and Heads up leagues. The Titans have allowed a RB Touchdown in 10 straight games and have allowed 20+ fantasy points in nine of those 10.
El Cheapo –HOU RB Dennis Johnson $3,000 vs DEN – Dump city in the second half as Schaub should check down repeatedly against coverage defense. RBs against Denver have reached 100+ in nine straight games, so he's a good bet for a nice fantasy day.
WAS WR – Santana Moss $3,000 vs DAL – Can you say Cowboy Killer? Moss has a history of big games against the Cowboys and Cousins is auditioning for other teams in the game this Sunday. Moss quietly put up eight receptions for 84 yards last week and is worth the flier against a defense that can't stop anybody. The Cowboys have allowed 200+ yards receiving to the WR position in four of the last five games and have been torched for seven WR touchdowns over that span.
El Cheapo – SF WR Michael Crabtree $4,300 vs ATL – The swan song has arrived for Candlestick park. Look for the Niners to send the field out in a big way for the fans. Every QB not named Matt Flynn has thrown for multiple TDs against the Falcons this season, so write it down: Crabtree scores this week.
Bonus * El Cheapo – NYG WR– Jerrell Jernigan $3,000 @ DET – I can't stand the Giants' passing game this year, but it's looking like Victor Cruz will sit out this game. Many fantasy players will jump on the Rueben Randle bandwagon, but I'll take the kid who has been more productive as of late. Jernigan just had seven for 67 against a tough Hawks secondary. Nicks is stuck in the mud and can't separate from defenders. Jernigan wants the job.
CLE TE Jordan Cameron $4,100 @ NYJ – If he passes concussion testing, there's NO WAY you can't have Cameron in your lineup at this price. The price is low due to the ineffectiveness last week, but the Jets have allowed a Tight End to score or reach 70 yards in 11 of the last 12 games. Cameron is money in the bank this week if he's a go.
El Cheapo TE – Tyler Eifert $3,900 vs MIN – It looks like Gresham will go, but I doubt he's a full go, so I give Tyler Eifert a good chance to have a big day. Dalton has done well this year with PLUS matchups and (weather permitting) the rookie should see a pretty nice piece of the offense on Sunday against the third best matchup for Tight Ends. Last week he put up three for 33 and a TD in a time share on only 68% of the snaps. Hey Marvin Lewis, give the kid some more work in this blowout!
PK – Just spend $3,000 on a kicker or whatever is left in your budget after you like your team. Be different, don't go after the hot names (Bailey or Tucker) as everybody is going to try to get them. Don't kid yourselves. Kickers are situational, but watch the weather reports and avoid wind and snow.
DST – LIONS $3,000 vs NYG – Taking on the Giants is the gift that keeps on giving. They lead the league in points against the fantasy defense/special teams position. Look for a nice game out of the Lions at home against a Giants team that looks like they quit a long time ago.
Bonus DST – Chargers $3,100 - I wouldn't be afraid to use the Chargers this week against the Raiders either. The Chargers are playing for a playoff spot, and if they play like they did last week, they could be in for a big day.
Jump in and take your shot at glory. Win a seat in the 2014 Fantasy Football World Championship.
There's not a better place in the world to watch the first week of NFL Action. Once you do it once, you'll never be anywhere else!
