Fantasy Question: An Injured T.J. With Fitzpatrick vs. PIT Or Kevin Walter vs. DET

Posted by in NFL General on October 18th, 2008 | 3 Comments

So I’m thinking of benching T.J. Houshmandzadeh because he was banged up last week and was held out of practice until Friday.  He fully participated in and is expected to play Sunday though. Plus, Carson Palmer is out and Fitzpatrick will be the starter against a tough Pittsburgh defense (ranked 2nd against the pass).

Do I bench T.J. for Kevin Walter, a Houston WR that is averaging 53 yards a game and has 3 TDs since he’s playing a dismal Lions defense that is on the road?

If you have any fantasy sit ’em or start ’em questions for Week 7, hit me up in the comments section and let me know if you would go T.J. vs. Pittsburgh or Kevin Walter vs. Detroit.

    Definitely Walter v. Detroit. I think AJ and Walter will both of a hay day against Detroit tomorrow.

    IF you were betting any NFL games tomorrow what would you do…other than your teaser on the Saints game.

    I’m going with $50 on the Bills ATS, $40 on Bucs ATS, $40 on Ravens ATS, and $20 on Giants ATS.

    BILLS ATS: The good news is they’re at home off a bye against on the east coast against a west coast team. You’re pretty much putting all your eggs in that basket if you think they can win. However, the Chargers are always capable of deciding to show up and play football. If this was on a neutral field, I would take the Chargers, but just how much will the home field play in this one? All we have to base that on is how the Chargers played in Miami.

    BUCS ATS: The Seahawks are terrible, but 10.5 points? That’s a lot of points. The Bucs will probably score 20-24 points meaning the Seahawks need 10-14 points to cover. The Bucs dominated the Panthers last week thanks to a TD on a special teams block. Once you get off to that early start, the games just starts going your way. The Seahawks are very bad though, so maybe the Bucs can cover.

    RAVENS ATS: I don’t like the Ravens being on the road with a rookie QB that hasn’t proved anything but being a liability to his team. The Dolphins are playing great football and are 3-0 ATS in their last 3. Samarri Rolle and Dawan Landry are still out and there are some other injuries too. Tom Zbikowski and Fabian Washington are also questionable. The injuries to the Ravens defense is a huge concern. I’m actually going to change by pick to the Dolphins in this one.

    GIANTS ATS: I think the Giants should bounce back. I hope that don’t being an Eagles fan. I think the 49ers have a good shot to cover since they’re getting 10.5 and their offense has been able to hang with teams, it’s their defense that’s been a huge disappointment.

    Give Kevin Walter the nod. Detroit is pathetic on both sides of the ball – especially since they got fleeced out of Roy Williams. Whether they double Andre Johnson or not, I expect Kevin Walter to have a big day.

    While TJ has had a decent season so far, the Bengals as a whole have been a mess. Palmer is out, Fitzpatrick is in. That alone against Pittsburgh’s defense is a cause for concern. Harvard graduates do NOT belong in the NFL. Also, TJ nicked up his ankle and may not be at 100%
