Far too many people draft a team and forget about it until about halfway through the season, refusing to make any moves (trades or waiver wire) because they have faith in their guy.
Andy Dalton, A.J. Green, Jeremy Hill, and a defense lead by Vincent Rey and Emmanuel Lamur stepped up for fantasy owners around the world and ended up finishing as starting caliber players in most formats.
It has been a wild and crazy past few weeks for Quarterbacks with Ben Roethlisberger setting an NFL record with back-to-back six (6) touchdown games, only to go out and manage just a single endzone visit against one of the league’s worst pass defenses in the Jets this week.
The Bengals got back their star WR in A.J. Green this week, and he wasted no time making his presence felt hauling in 3 passes for 44 yards and a touchdown. Not to be forgotten, Mohamed Sanu posted 4 catches, 95 yards, and a touchdown. That gives Sanu 39 receptions, 628 receiving yards, and 4 TDs on the season, stats good enough to rank him #8 this season for fantasy WRs on NFL.com!
It isn’t often that I am so wrong that I want to just stick my head in the sand and never take it out, but that is what happened this week as I recommended Ben Roethlisberger be on people’s bench.
Week 8 marks the halfway point to the Fantasy Football season for most as the championship game is typically held in Week 16. With half the season gone, it is time for owners to take a look at their rosters and make some tough decisions.
