I would like to introduce our next great writer here at the Thunderblog. He goes by the alias “The Iceman”. I won’t give away his true identity but what you need to know is that he is a stud who is about as humble as the Iceman from Top Gun. The only knock on him is his affinity for New York sports.
So without further ado, The Thunderdome proudly presents “The Iceman”!
As Week 10 approaches, fantasy owners are once again confronted with some of the toughest decisions they will ever have to make (at least until next week). Unlike what Incognito did for Martin, I’m about to make your life a whole lot easier.
Reggie Bush – Detroit Lions – RB
Week 10 opponent – Chicago Bears
I haven’t chanted “BUSH! BUSH!” this loud since 2004. He is a top 3 back this week going against a Bears defense that gave up 150 rushing yards to “Fat” Eddie Lacy last week. Don’t be surprised when Bush pushes 200 total yards with a touchdown or two. – Start ‘Em
Andre Ellington – Arizona Cardinals – RB
Week 10 opponent – Houston Texans
In the game before last week’s bye, he put up over 150 rushing yards and a touchdown on just 15 carries, what’s not to like? How about a healthy Rashard Mendenhall to vulture half the carries and a Texans D that has held opposing RBs to under 100 yards the past 3 weeks. Unless you’re in bye week hell, consider other options. – Sit ‘Em
Mike Wallace – Miami Dolphins – WR
Week 10 opponent – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
He hasn’t had a touchdown since Week 2, but Miami is a team looking to emerge from America’s doghouse. With the shocking parting of Jonathan Martin, the Fins are coming off their biggest abrupt departure since Ricky Williams quit to become a hippie and smoke weed without Paul Tagliabue breathing down his neck. All I’m trying to say is the Dolphins have a lot to prove this week on the MNF national stage. Look for Wallace to be Tannehill’s go to man. – Start ‘Em
Jarrett Boykin – Green Bay Packers – WR
Week 10 opponent – Philadelphia Eagles
Party’s over. James Jones is back, putting Boykin 3rd on the WR depth chart. And with Seneca Wallace under center, Boykin will get thrown to about as much as any of Green Bay’s offensive linemen. – Sit ‘Em
