Monday Night Football Preview

Monday Night Football

New England Patriots
QB Tom Brady- While Brady did have a great week 9, I do not anticipate that to be the case this week. This week Brady gets the Carolina defense that is #1 against opposing QBs. they have shut down their fair shair of QBs this year. While Brady is rounding into form and has all of his weapons currently, it's hard to imagine him throwing up amazing fantasy numbers this week. Projected points: 18

RB Stevan Ridley- Ridley has been on fire as of lately. He has scored double-digit fantasy points for 4 straight games. This week he gets a Carolina defense that held Frank Gore and Adrian Peterson to single digits. I'm not anticipating a great game from Ridley but I will project a rushing TD. Projected points: 9

RB Shane Vereen- This will be Vereens first game back since week 1. He will be involved I'm sure but I worry about how many touches he will get considering it is his first game back. Projected points: 5

WR Danny Amendola- Carolina is first against WRs (Do you notice a pattern here with the Carolina defense?). Amendola is healthy and playing well. He played very well against a good Pittsburgh defense. Again, keep your expectations in check. Projected points: 8

TE Rob Gronkowski- If there is a weakness in the Carolina defense, it's here. They are in the middle of the league against opposing TEs. Gronk has been playing very well lately and I anticipate a fantastic game from him tonight. Projected points: 15

Carolina Panthers
QB Cam Newton- With New England losing Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo on defense, New England is going to have a hard time stopping Newton. Wilfork and Mayo were both the top run stoppers on the team. Newton loves to run the ball and succeeds at it also. He should have a good game on the ground. Projected points: 24

RB DeAngelo Williams- Williams has played well but with the addition of Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert in the backfield it is hard to expect much from Williams. The touches just seem to be more and more split between the 3 (along with Cam Newton). Projected points: 5

RB Mike Tolbert- Tolbert is THE goal line RB for Carolina. I'm banking on a redone TD for him but don't expect much more than that. Projected points: 8

WR Steve Smith- Smith has been a big disappointment this season. This week he gets New England. NE does a very good job of shutting down an opposing offenses so I'm not expecting anything spectacular from Smith tonight. Projected points: 6

WR Bandon LaFell & Ted Ginn Jr.- These guys are desperation plays at best. It's hard to guess which player will produce a TD so I'm going to project the same amount for both.
Projected points: 5

TE Greg Olsen- Olsen has scored a TD in two out of the past 3 weeks. New England isn't anything too scary when it comes to TEs. I'm anticipating a good game from Olsen along with a TD. Projected points: 12
