Each week, TSN. Andre Johnson Youth Jersey .cas NFL Editor
Justin Boone and Fantasy Editor Scott Cullen will compare fantasy football
rankings and provide justification for some of the more notable differences in
their opinions. Michael Vick (Eagles) vs. Matthew Stafford (Lions) Cullen (Vick, #6, Stafford #12) – Anything involving Michael Vick comes with an element of
risk and recommending a quarterback that has thrown six interceptions in two
games may be a stretch, but Im also looking at a guy who has thrown for 688
yards in two games, including 371 (on 32 pass attempts) against Baltimore last
week. If he can throw for 300 against Baltimore, he should be able to at least
approach that threshold at Arizona.  I was down on Matthew Stafford last week
going into San Francisco, but that was primarily a function of going up against
San Franciscos defence. However, after seeing a few too many passes sail out of
the reach of Lions receivers, I remain skeptical. Maybe this week, visiting a
much weaker Tennessee team, is a prime opportunity for Stafford to put up big
numbers, since the Titans cant seem to do anything right thus far (outscored
72-23 in two games), but theres something about the Lions that seems out of sync
early in the season. Boone (Stafford #3, Vick #10) – Stafford may be off to a
slower start than he had last season, but that will change in Week 3. The Lions
offence goes up against a Titans team that ranks 20th in passing yards allowed
and has given up five passing touchdowns through two games.  Against Tennessee,
Calvin Johnson will have a great opportunity to visit the end zone for the first
time this season and spark plug Titus Young should finally establish himself as
the second option in the Lions passing attack. The Titans lack a consistent pass
rush and as we saw on Thursday night with the Panthers and Giants, if you cant
get pressure on a quarterback, he will carve up your secondary. With
Mikel Leshoure returning from suspension and adding a new dimension to the
offence, Stafford will thrive on the road in Tennessee. Vick has put decent
fantasy numbers this year, but his habit of turning the ball over will come back
to haunt him against the Cardinals. Arizonas defence may be the most underrated
unit in the NFL and the Eagles will find out why on Sunday. Calais Campbell,
Darnell Dockett and Patrick Peterson will make it their mission to frustrate
Vick into making mistakes. In Week 10 last season, the Cardinals limited Vick to
128 passing yards and no touchdowns, while intercepting him twice. With
Jeremy Maclin expected to miss this game, Peterson will lock in on shutting down
Vicks other top receiver DeSean Jackson. The result could be a long afternoon
for the Eagles quarterback. Doug Martin (Buccaneers) vs. Willis McGahee
(Broncos) Cullen (McGahee #12, Martin #18) – Admittedly, the Houston Texans have
a terrific defence, so there is a leap of faith required to rank McGahee in the
top dozen. However, hes also an established number one back, ranking 11th in the
league in touches through two weeks and even if last weeks two fourth-quarter
touchdowns arent likely to be duplicated, McGahee rushed for 113 yards at
Atlanta too, even though the Broncos were trailing for virtually the entire
game.  Martin gets a lot of touches in his own right—fifth in the league with
48—but after 66 yards on 20 carries at the Giants last week, Im exercising a
little caution. The Cowboys surrendered 122 yards on the ground to
Marshawn Lynch last week, so there is reason to suspect that their run defence
could be an issue, but I expect Dallas defence to be significantly better in
their home opener than what they showed last week at Seattle. Boone (Martin #9,
McGahee #25) – Martin captured the starting job and has turned the Tampa Bay
backfield into a one-man show. The rookie is 13th in the league in rushing and
his 48 touches rank fifth overall in the NFL heading into Week 3. Martin meets
the Cowboys, who allowed Marshawn Lynch to run for 122 yards and a touchdown,
controlling the pace and sending Dallas to a loss a week ago. Greg Schiano will
follow the same blueprint, leaning on his young tailback in hopes of shortening
the game and keeping the Cowboys offence off the field. If Tampa falls behind
early, Martin is also a good receiver and will continue to get his touches as
the focal point of the offence. McGahee is still going strong as a member of the
Broncos, but this week he will run up against one of the best defences in the
AFC. The Houston Texans havent allowed a running back to break 70 yards this
season and Sunday will be no different. While it may be a small sample size, its
a continuation of the type of dominating defence the Texans began playing last
year. McGahee will get his carries, however he wont find the big running lanes
that were there against the Falcons. Andre Johnson (Texans) vs. Dwayne Bowe
(Chiefs) Cullen (Bowe #13, Johnson #20) – I acknowledge that Dwayne Bowes two
touchdowns at Buffalo last week were total garbage time efforts, after the Bills
had built a 35-3 lead, but Bowe remains a preferred target for quarterback
Matt Cassel, leading the Chiefs with 21 targets through the first two games.
That Bowe gets matched up against a Saints secondary that has been torched in
back-to-back weeks, allowing a league-worst 12.5 yards per passing attempt, is
reason to hope for another score.  The Texans have played such a conservative
offence through their first two games, focusing on runs and short passes, that
theyve left Andre Johnson as an afterthought. Hes been targeted 14 times,
catching 11 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown, which is fine, but not at his
peak level either. Perhaps the matchup against Denver will force the Texans
offence to open up and Johnson will play a bigger role, but even if thats the
game plan, the Broncos secondary shouldnt be discounted entirely either. With
Champ Bailey and Tracy Porter on the corners, the Broncos have allowed 6.1 yards
per pass attempt, fifth-best in the league, so while I would still play Johnson,
hes no better than a number two fantasy receiver this week. Boone (Johnson #5,
Bowe #20) – The Texans have moved towards a more run-heavy approach with
Arian Foster and Ben Tate carrying the load. When it works to perfection, there
will be games like last weeks win over Jacksonville that was never in doubt.
Unfortunately for an elite receiver like Johnson, that means less targets as the
offence is playing with a lead and focuses on killing the clock. Make no
mistake; last week will be Johnsons lowest fantasy output of 2012. Johnson came
out of the gates strong with eight catches, 119 yards and touchdown over Miami
and showed that he is still among the games best. The Broncos will present more
of a challenge than the Jags, so Johnson will be more involved this week. Bowe
had a monster game against Buffalo, but all his points came in garbage time. The
Chiefs have fallen behind twice and their offence has looked out of sorts in the
process. When teams drop back into prevent coverage to protect their lead,
Matt Cassel capitalizes on the relaxed defenders. In Week 1, that led to three
catches and 53 yards for Bowe. In Week 2, he caught eight balls for 102 yards
and two touchdowns. This week, the Saints have a good chance of pulling away
early and if they do, but gambling on garbage time production is dangerous. I
have Bowe ranked as a low-end WR2, but he is not going to out score Johnson on a
weekly basis. J.J. Watt NFL Jersey . In a fitting way to
mark United manager Alex Fergusons 1,000th league game in charge, Van Persie
equalized in the 87th minute before heading home a corner in the second minute
of injury time for his fourth goal since joining from Arsenal for 24 million
pounds ($38 million) in the off-season. Kevin Walter Jersey . 22 pick in this years
amateur draft, was suspended 50 games Tuesday for violating baseballs minor
league drug program. http://www.fanstexansroom.com/j-j-watt-jersey
. In a move that was highly unpopular with his former teammates and Pittsburgh
fans, the Pirates shipped McLouth to Atlanta last Wednesday for three prospects.
McLouth was arguably the Braves most productive player on Monday, going 3-for-7
with a homer and two runs scored batting out of the leadoff spot. Chipper Jones
and Brian McCann each hit a two-run homer for Atlanta, which has won two games
in a row. Arian Foster NFL Jersey . The 2014 Olympics
might still be almost two years away, but its currently front of mind for the
man in charge of assembling Team Canada. Arian Foster Black Jersey . —It seemed as
if Denny Hamlin was out for a Sunday afternoon drive at Kansas Speedway, hanging
around the leaders most of the day but never really giving anybody too much
reason to worry.BOSTON—The Boston Red Sox have activated outfielder
Ryan Sweeney from the disabled list and optioned outfielder Ryan Kalish to
Triple-A Pawtucket. They made the move on Saturday before the second game of a
day-night doubleheader in which the New York Yankees won the opener 6-1. Sweeney
started in centre fiield after recovering from inflammation of the left big toe
that sent him to the 15-day disabled list on June 17. Arian Foster Pink Jersey. . In his first
season with Boston, Sweeney went into the second game batting .292 with no
homers and 13 RBIs in 52 games. Kalish hit .217 with no homers and five RBIs in
18 games. ’ ’ ’
