Spaceball's Fav 5 For Week 15
December 10th, 2008
Quarterback: Tyler Thigpen
I can't pick Kurt Warner, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning or Jay Cutler anymore, so I'm going to go with someone else that I think should put up some more than respectable stats in week 15.
Tyler Thigpen….Yes, I said it! Thigpen started out the season 3rd on the depth chart for the Kansas City Chiefs, yet he showed the most promise out of all three quarterbacks in the pre-season. Double T is going to be playing from behind most of this game and that will force him to throw the ball to play catch up all game long. His last 2 outings have been mediocre at best, but San Diego's secondary is nothing to write home about.
Projections: 267 yards & 3 Touchdowns
Running Back: DeAngelo Williams
Have you looked at this guys stats over the past 5 weeks? He's been one of the hottest running backs in football since John Fox realized how special of a running back he had. Expect another huge stat line from D.A. this week as long as Fox continue to run first and pass second.
Projection: 111 yards and 2 Touchdowns
Wide Receiver: Brandon Marshall
Cutler and Brandon Marshall must have went out to "Camp David" a couple of weeks ago to go over their offensive strategy for the rest of the season because these 2 have a stronger connection that Verizon Wireless Services these days. Marshall caught 11 passes for 91 yards and 2 touchdowns in week 14 and should be able to take advantage of a tired Panthers secondary that played this past Monday night. The Broncos will have to depend on their passing game more than ever since they've lost their 3rd starting running back this season!
Projection: 117 yards & 1 Touchdown
Wide Receiver: Marvin Harrison
Peyton finally found Waldo! It looks like the break between Peyton Manning to Marvin Harrison has come to an end. Harrison caught 5 balls for 71 yards last week and 2 touchdowns. Harrison now has 12 catches over the past 3 games and looks like Manning's favorite target again…Finally! Detroit's secondary stinks worst than a dirty diaper and that means Marvelous Marvin Harrison may have his biggest game of the year.
Projection: 8 catches, 92 Yards and 2 Touchdowns
Kicker: Nick Folk
If there is one team that no one wants to play, it's the Dallas Cowboys this week. Dallas not only handed last weeks game to the Steelers, but their offense was completely shut down in week 14. Dallas is in a must win situation and I can guarantee you they're going to want to redeem themselves in a big way to forget about last weeks dismal performance.
Projection: 3 Fields Goals 4 Extra Points
