A two-time champion in a hardcore keeper league, including some know-it-all media "experts", who just so happened to finish 3-10 in said league this year, Adam Boedeker gives his fantasy expertise on a weekly basis.
Stud of the Week
Josh Freeman, QB, TB — As expected, Freeman has been one of the breakout stars at quarterback this year after getting off to a painfully slow start. This week, Freeman gets God's gift to quarterbacks, the New Orleans Saints defense. Over his career, Freeman has torched the Saints, and over this season everyone has torched the Saints. So the odds are, he'll have another big game on Sunday.
Honorable mention:Andy Dalton, CIN (at PHI); Mikel Leshoure, DET (at ARI); Michael Crabtree, SF (at NE); Bilal Powell, NYJ (at TEN).
Dud of the Week
Eli Manning, QB, NYG — Manning has been hit or miss for much of the season, and most of his misses have come on the road. This week, the Atlanta Falcons will look to extend that trend. The Falcons have been great against opposing QBs and Manning is dealing with an empty cupboard as Hakeem Nicks and Ahmad Bradshaw — both battling nagging injuries all season — are questionable to play.
Honorable mention: Tony Romo, DAL (vs. PIT); Michael Turner, ATL (vs. NYG); Pierre Garcon, WAS (at CLE); Torrey Smith, BAL (vs. DEN).
