Not trying to make this a fantasy football thread, but here's what ESPN fantasy experts have to say about certain guys:
Vernon Davis (minus-3 points)
Let's close with my "Lower Your Expectations" pick of the week. The projected points are down for San Francisco's skill guys because they are playing the Panthers, who are one of only two defenses (Cardinals) to rank in the top five versus passing (No. 4) and rushing (No. 5). Both teams have been hot against bad competition, but it would not be surprising to see a low-scoring battle this week.
Neither team has a "Player With A Favorable Matchup," but listed under the "Players With Unfavorable Matchups," is this:
Players With Unfavorable Matchups Pos Team Name +/- Fan Pts QB HOU Case Keenum -5 QB ATL Matt Ryan -5 QB DAL Tony Romo -5 QB SF Colin Kaepernick -4 QB TB Mike Glennon -4 RB SF Frank Gore -3 TE SF Vernon Davis -3 WR HOU Andre Johnson -3 WR TB Vincent Jackson -3 RB SD Danny Woodhead -2 RB CIN Giovani Bernard -2 RB HOU Arian Foster -2 TE ATL Tony Gonzalez -2 RB OAK Darren McFadden -2 WR SF Anquan Boldin -2 RB SD Ryan Mathews -2 TE TB Tim Wright -2 WR DAL Terrance Williams -2 WR ATL Harry Douglas -2 TE DAL Jason Witten -2 QB CAR Cam Newton -2 QB PIT Ben Roethlisberger -1 QB BAL Joe Flacco -1 WR PIT Antonio Brown -1 QB JAC Chad Henne -1 WR BAL Torrey Smith -1 RB ARI Andre Ellington -1 RB BAL Ray Rice -1 WR CAR Steve Smith -1
I know it's fantasy, but if we are comparing player-to-player, I think this adds decent insight.
