Oh boy. The running joke here at FV is how long we trek into the season before a Raider makes it into Charch's rankings. The over/under is week four. With the jolting news that Terrelle Pryor has been given the starting nod, it actually decreased the value of Rod Streater and Denarius Moore…that is if they had any to begin with.
The bottom line is avoid all Raiders like a twerking Miley Cirus. Now I know what you are saying. Doug, what about Darren McFadden.
Okay, if there are no other options available to you and you subscribe to the blind squirrel theory, hey may find his nut against the Colts, but I'm not going to bet the farm on it.
Sebastian Jankowski is nursing an injury so even he is not a good start this week.
Avoid all Raiders.
Darren McFadden- C-
Charch has Andrew Luck ranked 8th and his owners shall be rewarded for their loyalty. With a stat line that should look about 250-260 and a pair of touchdowns, Luck is a good play against a bad defense.
When Ahmad Bradshaw was born the doctor took one look at him and immediately declared he had a foot injury. That same injury plagued him during his time in the big apple and well wouldn't you know it, he's questionable with a foot again. Here's the good news. Bradshaw should find the endzone if he can stay on the field. He'll also tally a combined 75 yards.
I like TY Hilton in a big way. Hilton should close in the century mark and will score. The ageless wonder Reggie Wayne won't be much of a factor from a yardage perspective but has a decent shot at finding the endzone. Darrius Heyward-Bust should pull in with about 50 yards and tight end Coby Fleener will be a minimal factor.
Adam Vinatieri and the defense are good stars in week one.
