FANTASY FOOTBALL WAIVER WIRE:
FITZMAGIC TIME (WEEK 3)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Matt Stafford has more points this season than Andrew Luck/Drew Brees/Peyton Manning. Out of all those QBs mentioned, Stafford is the only one who yet to have a home game. While the season is young, Matt Stafford has been a straight up warrior taking big hit after big hit, converting 4th down, after 4th down. If there is one QB who is dominating garbage time, Matt Stafford is that guy. After 50+ Pass attempts and another 8 tough QB hits on Sunday. Time to give Stafford a break even if he does play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football, first home game of the season. While there is no doubt that Stafford, if he plays, will throw the ball 40+ Times. It is not worth the risk of one big shot that could send him out of that game as he is barely standing right now. His matchup Week 4 against the Seahawks does not scare me, as long as Kam Chancellor is still sitting on the sidelines. Before we look into the Future, let us stay in the present and worry about Week 3.
With the Eagles offense looking sloppier than Tara Reid and Paris Hilton at a Night Club, the timing could not be more perfect for Ryan Fitzmagic to do some damage against an Eagles Defense that lives and dies with playing overly aggressive. While at times that is a recipe for a Fitzmagic INT or two, this is a different Fitzmagic. This is a Fitzmagic who is confident coming off a MNF road victory against the potential Superbowl Champion Colts, and things could not be looking better as Brandon Marshall is simply unguardable. I was saying it all Preseason, I was saying it all season, and if you bought my DAILY RANKINGS PACKAGE for Week 2, chances are he would have found his way in your lineup.

With all that being said. This is the week to use Fitzmagic in all leagues that I have Matt Stafford as my usual starter. It would have been nice if Eric Decker did not get injured as that makes Fitzmagic that much better, but all of his career he has worked with #3/#4 caliber WRs and turned them into nice options. Whether it was Stevie Johnson (#2 Caliber) and a bunch of scrubs in Buffalo, to all the scrubs he had in Tennessee. Cannot say that was the case in Houston as DeAndre Hopkins and Andre Johnson was a very good WR core for the Texans.
Regardless, this is the week to add Fitzmagic against the Eagles Defense that will likely be on the field way too long as the Offense is going nowhere, and the Jets Defense should be able to get the ball in Magic’s hands all afternoon. I was high on Fitzmagic all Preseason and every VIP probably owns him and is stashing him, he is even sitting on the bench of TEAM BEAST.

So before I send you off to your Waiver Wire. Pop quiz, what are you forgetting?
NICK FOLK – K – NYJ
It is vital that you run QB/K with Fitzmagic this week. The reason the QB/K has not been working with Prater and Stafford early on is due to turnovers from the Lions. So far in the 2nd half of games, the Lions have 5 Turnovers and often find themselves not really having any consistent chemistry until the last drive.
The Jets offense looks more crisp than the Colts offense these days and you can expect that momentum to continue at home against the Eagles.
