Malcolm Floyd - San Diego Chargers WR: The Chargers-Saints game this week has shootout written all over it. With Ryan Matthews easing back into the mix, look for him to have a pretty good day, but look for Floyd to have a better one, a Man day. New Orleans' defense has given up a ton of points every week and without Vincent Jackson around anymore look for Floyd to possibly have his breakout game of the season.
Randall Cobb - Green Bay Packers WR: With Greg Jennings out this week it’s time for James Jones and Cobb to step it up in his absence. Look for Cobb to be that “omnipresent” player he’s supposed to be. Mike McCarthy loves this kid and wants to use him everywhere. The Indianapolis defense is going to give up a ton of fantasy points to the Packers, so look for Rodgers and Cobb to connect quite a bit on Sunday.
Kyle Rudolph - Minnesota Vikings TE: Where the hell was this guy last week? Well we’re predicting a big comeback for Rudolph this week against the Titans. This guy is a beast just stewing to have a monster game. The Titans aren't very good and Rudolph is Ponder’s go-to guy (not like that’s a great thing to be), but it's time for Rudolph to step into the spotlight and this week could be his week to be a Man.
Ahmad Bradshaw - New York Giants RB: Thought this guy was toast huh? Bradshaw is in his second week back from his injury and the Giants have been killing people mostly from the air this year. Bradshaw is about to go all “Andre Brown” over the Browns. Bradshaw’s a Man this week, book it.
Andy Dalton - Cincinnati Bengals QB: The ginger will strike, and he will strike hard this week. The Dolphins defense is going to look like fish out of water Sunday (see what I did there? [Editor's Note: Puns? Is this what we've come to?]). Dalton has weapons all around him and with this core group of young, fast receivers, Dalton is going to turn it all the way up. Redhead goes nuts, believe it.
Michael Vick - Philadelphia Eagles QB: The Eagles face the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday and these birds are in some trouble. I know the Eagles are 3-1 and winning when it counts, but this Sunday I just don’t see it happening. Mendenhall and James Harrison are back this week Mendenhall is only going to make the Steelers offense more efficient and time consuming while Harrison is only going to make the defense better. Vick will struggle, a lot, Lady.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis - Cincinnati Bengals RB: This guy fumbled last week after he was put in the Man column. He fumbled for the first time ever. That’s some bad timing if you ask me. This week is not going to get any better for Benny as he goes up against a (I know) tough Dolphins defense. They are not allowing RBs to do anything. For the second straight week BenJarvus goes straight Lady on us.
Jeremy Maclin - Philadelphia Eagles WR: He’s not coming back big from a disappointing week. We think Jeremy is going to have another tough go at it again. We do believe he is going to put smiles back on his fantasy owners faces at some point this season but this Sunday it won’t be happening. The Steelers aren’t a chump team that is going to allow these Eagles to do much. Expect a very Lady-like game from Maclin and his teammates. (Also see Michael Vick above.)
Michael Turner - Atlanta Falcons RB: This is a guy that you wouldn’t normally see much of on the “Lady” lists, but we have a feeling. A bad one. Why you ask? The Falcons are going to destroy the Redskins defense through the air all day Sunday, and Mr. Turner is going to be nothing but an afterthought come game day. The biggest dumpa in the league is going to put up sub-par stats this week. It’s coming. Please take our advice. P.S. I hope this one is in the air, because Matty Ice vs. RGIII is going to be unreal.
DeAngelo Williams - Carolina Panthers RB: This guy hasn’t put up over 70 yards yet this season so I’m not sure why we are even bothering with him. Listen, if he is in your starting lineup Sunday and you're expecting him to do anything against this Seattle defense, you haveanother thing coming. This guy is a Lady 15 weeks out of 16 every year. That one week isn’t this week. Trust me.
Bold Lady Prediction of the Week:
Torrey Smith - Baltimore Ravens WR: Three reasons: 1) Ray Rice, 2) Ray Rice, and 3) Ray Rice. Easy.
