I’m no AP, but I’ll do Juan…
You don’t need me to tell you to start Arian Foster, DMC, Ray Rice, or LeSean McCoy…my mom could figure that out. Let’s look at some other matchups that could be favorable this week:
Kevin Smith vs StL
Smith is what you call the last man standing. The Jersey Leshoure is suspended and Best is on the PUP. The Rams allowed the 3rd most points to fantasy RBs in 2011 and it’s not like Fisher is going to turn it around that fast. The Lions should cruise here and Smith could put up some serious points.
Doug Martin vs Car
The rookie has been getting a ton of praise and will get his first NFL start against the Panthers who couldn’t stop me last season. He should get 15-20 touches and a solid stat line will ensue.
Toby Gerhart vs Jac
AP will be either OUT or VERY LIMITED in this game and Gerhart proved that he could carry the load last season. Being a better pass catcher than AP as it is, this is a decent matchup at home and Gerhart should p
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
How as Ray Rice living on his 2nd round draft pick salary? Frugally. The guy recently signed a 5-year, $40 million contract with the Ravens so he can afford something better than a 4 bed, 4 bath townhouse with only 2,100 sq. ft. It’s time to unload the rookie contract digs. Can’t say we blame Rice. Take a look at the faucets in the master bathroom.

With one of the toughest first place schedules in the NFL this season, the Baltimore Ravens will have a difficult time repeating as the AFC North Champions. And with the Pittsburgh Steelers always breathing down the Ravens beaks, and an easier schedule to maneuver, the black and gold will overtake Baltimore by one game to [...]

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has made it clear that their offense is led by quarterback Joe Flacco.
“In pecking order, this is Joe’s offense, then everybody else,” Rice said Thursday, per the Baltimore Sun. “And he’s proven that this preseason with how he’s played, his tempo, how vocal he is, and the quiet Joe phase I think is pretty much over...
1. Arian Foster
Last season, Ray Rice had 1,364 yards rushing, 704 yards receiving, and 15 total touchdowns. Arian Foster, on the other hand, has 1,224 yards rushing, 617 yards receiving, and 12 total touchdowns. The difference is Foster did that in only 13 games. He was on pace to have a better fantasy season than Rice. While that alone doesn’t necessarily convince me that Foster...
So there I am with my my laptop, cheat sheets, and my iPad loaded with ESPN Insider tips and strategies …. it’s Fantasy Football Draft Night. In all my other leagues I’ve always been at the bottom of the draft order but this league I have the #4 pick and with that, extra pressure to make a solid selection.
Ray Rice, Arian Foster, and then Aaron Rodgers come off the board...

As one of the NFL's most consistent franchises, the Baltimore Ravens are hoping quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice can help them make a long-awaited return to the Super Bowl.
The Cincinnati Bengals are looking to their young duo of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green to help build on last year's trip to the postseason, and the teams will begin their respective quests...
Feel that tension
note: Like my cynical colleague SamVox, I sent a submission to Grantland's Fantasy
Football writer contest that was summarily rejected by the website's editors. After
much inner debate, I've decided to post the deathless brilliance that the gormless
twits at Grantland turned down because they're unable to comprehend...
