Top Performers 1. SJ Patrick Marleau (2 goals – 2 assists – 4 points) 2. PHI Joffrey Lupul ( 2 goals) – Lupul netted his first two goals of the season. Is Lupul turning the corner?

So far Tkachuk is proving his doubters wrong. 5. CHI Patrick Sharp ( 2 points) – Sharp has 10 points in seven games and is showing his 36 goal season in 07-08 was not a fluke

NHL Fantasy Report: Pick up Ehrhoff

 

Players to watch this week 1.Nicklas Backstrom is off to a slow start with only one assist in six games. Backstrom is now paired with Alexander Semin (6 goals this season). Expect Backstrom to breakout this week. I‚Äôm in five different fantasy hockey leagues and once Miroslav Satan was moved to the third line last week, Satan was dropped in three out of the five leagues. Satan leads the Penguins with 4 goals and he‚Äôs being used as a situational player getting power play minutes. Keep him Player to pick up 1. NYR Aaron Voros – Voros has five goals and nine points in eight games; his career best (last season) is 14 points in 55 games. Voros is now owned in 70% of the leagues on ESPN.

Should you pick up Nate Washington? Steelers WR Nate Washington caught a career-high six passes for 94 yards and a score Sunday night in Jacksonville. The Steelers will have games where they will throw the ball 35-40 times but Washington is nothing more than a 4th or 5th receiver regarding fantasy value Hines Ward had a strong game catching seven passes for 90 yards and a score. Ward is a nice receiver to have as your #3 option but he‚Äôs a risk as a #2. Mewelde Moore‚Äôs value goes down with Willie Parker returning next week but hold onto him for at least another two weeks to see how the carries play out Broncos WR Eddie Royals stock has plummeted but because of the potential touches he could have in any game, keep him on your roster but he‚Äôs not an every week starter.

Fantasy Football: What Steelers to play this week

 

1. QB Ben Roethlisberger ‚Äì NFL.com’s Adam Schefter reports that Ben Roethlisberger (questionable, shoulder) will “try to play” Sunday in Jacksonville. I wouldn‚Äôt look too much into that report. The Steelers are going to throw early and often tonight. Start Ben 2. Santonio Holmes ‚Äì the no-huddle offense will benefit Holmes. The Steelers ran formations in practice where Holmes was the primary target on quick slants and outs. Holmes will also see some time in the punt return game. There was a few occasions where he had some open scenes against the Ravens and could have made a big play. Holmes goes against a weak Jaguars secondary and look for him to be effective 3. Mewelde Moore ‚Äì If you have running backs on byes, Moore is not a bad pickup for this week. He will be used out of the backfield. Final Word: Keep Willie Parker on your roster:Read More »
