PostSubject: Arsenic vs Vipers: Hellacious match up of the week   Sat Sep 30, 2017 12:08 pm

Welcome to the Saturday or should I say late, edition of the match up of the week. Good to be back in North America. Warm showers are a beautiful thing. Enough about me. Lets get to it. This weeks match up features two 2-1 teams, so the expectation is for some competition and fireworks in this early season match up. Lets take a look position by position.

QB
At this time of year, you start to get an idea of both the upside and median for players. Philip Rivers isnt going to light it up points wise. The offense just isnt built to put up major points and red zone passes are not in abundance. The Browns signal caller isnt consistent enough yet to give quality points. Derek carr on the other hand has shown the ability to carry a fantasy squad. Kirk played well against the Raiders which is good to see. He had new offensive tools to mesh with and he just may have turned a corner

Advantage Arsenic

RB

Its funny you would think the loss of David Johnson would doom Tenafly but he is getting just enough from Ellington, and his receiving corp has carried thevoffense. There is a reason Arsenic only starts two WR. His running game is good/great. Gordon,mcaffrey, and Mcaffrey are a damn good bunch. Add in CJ anderson of 2 weeks ago and you are really good. Now if Charles cuts into his productivity like last week then maybe ellington and anderson push points wise.

Advantage arsenic

WR

I have been trying to steal er trade for one of Vipers receivers since week 1. He has a good group and his group is deep. Even double dipping into the Denver receiving group works this week. Allen hurns seems like he is getting more and more targets with A Rob out for the season. Dez.....man he looks so good on TV. He is thought of an elite reciver and has great games........and then at years end he doesnt seem to have elite points. Odd. Arsenic matches up with Cooks and nelson who are both damn good. Nelson is so productive it makes me cry every time i realize this is one of the few leagues i dont own him.


Advantage: vipers not by as much as you think though.

TE

I like none of these tight ends. .....what does my opinion matter though. Look like Clay will give you 4 catches and 40 or so yards a game and productivity wise is TD dependent. You dont get a td you dont get much. The rookie qbs best friend is the tight end. Cameron brate is the road blovk to OJ Howard becoming the it thing at TE. Right now you can xpect clay light with lower chance of a td. Jimmy graham doesnt fit but may do well with Baldwin not expected to play.

Advantage Arsenic

DT
I love Gerald McCoy even before he was the real star of Hard Knocks. He is a high motor penetrator. Danny shelton is not in his class. Maybe one day, but not today. When we usually start one DT, having a really good one is a distinct advantage

Advantage arsenic


DE
This is a spot where vipers invested wisely in the auction. Even Flowers who is his DE3 has been one of the best defenders for the Pats. Graham and olivie areclear DE1 types. But wait....this is where Asenic invested even more wisely with less dollars. Chris jones has big games in him like thevweek 2 outing. The kc defense as a whole is nasty. Griffen like i said in the week 1 match up is pretty darn good. He has a pretty high floor.

Advantage arsenic

LB

Anyone who posts that my defense is "average" better have a betterLB group than this. Both teams are average here. Shazier is the marquee name as far as players on both teams but the IR watch is on.....what game will he go out in? One of my friends from BC always said that frequent injuries like he has are a sign of steroid use.....hmmmmm. the Watt family seems to produce elite defenders. It is early but he may turn out to be as impactful as his older brother...hecis a rookie thougj. We'll see

Advantage push

CB

I simply dont care. If ther is one position in IDP i would remove its this one.

Safety
This position is where arsenic has some defnesive goodness. His safety group is better than both Tenafly and Mohawks. These are both above 500 teams. I think this position csn win you leagues and is very undervalued. Safeties get points and sometimes give you big plays but owners go forthe flashier LBs. Arsenics group isnt average.


Advantage Alaska

The computer has this one close but i think arsenic may roll over vipers. Both teams look to be playoff bound so it may be a early round rematch in the cond season for these two. They both still need to work roster wise to keep it rolling though. It will be interesting to see which team looks differetn/better as the season progresses.

Man this the first time my analysis was off the mark. Unless we see a major change on monday Tenafly will win handily.

Im trying. Need a repeat of Cousins. If i lose it is my own fault for benching Vigil with Burfict back. Had I kept Vigil in, it would be a different story tonight.

We both made mistakes. I had Bradberry in for Vernon until Sunday morning. Also played Josh Jones over any of my other safeties and sat Kupp when I should have sat Hurns.

Nicely done Jay! Good to see you're back safe and sound. Nothing like being stuck in a situation like that to make you realize how irrelevant things like starting line ups are!
