AFL Fantasy Guru’s Week 6 Rankings

If you don’t have one of these eight QB’s listed within this group, chances are you’re struggling a bit. But QBs like Philadelphia QB Ryan Vena and Tulsa QB Matt Bruenner are starting to have some value and could save you! I like their match ups this weekend a lot!

1. Tommy Grady, QB Utah: Home crowd plus a bad Spokane D plus WR Aaron Boone equals 300+ yards and 6-8 total TDs.
2. Nick Hill, QB Orlando: Should have no problems finding Sippio and TT downfield. Continue reading

AFL Fantasy Guru’s Week 6 WR Rankings

Back to a full schedule in week 6 after a brutal week 5 where more than HALF the teams in the AFL took the week off. Players on the rise are Sharks WR Sale Key, Spokane WR Emery Sammons, and
Mustang WR Ernest Smith, while on the decline are Brigade WR Steve Savoy, Spokane WR Greg Orton, and Force WR CJ Johnson. Hope everyone survived week 5 and kicks butt in week 6!

1. Aaron Boone, WR Utah: Great match up. Should shred the Spokane D like a knife through butter!
2. Trandon Harvey, WR Arizona: High-scoring game equals lots of points for Harv
3. Donovan Morgan, WR Philadelphia: Look for Hurricane Donavan to take out the Storm!
4. P.J. Berry, WR New Orleans: His QB play is really hurting him, but he’s impossible to bench.
5. Troy Bergeron, WR Cleveland Continue reading

AFL Fantasy Guru’s Week 5 WR Rankings

With eight AFL teams teams off, this will be an all important weekend for owners to field a full starting lineup.  Have no fear though, as there are some players you may not know about this weekend that you can roll the dice on.  Keep an eye on players like Alan Turner, Eric McCown and Burl Towle.  These are players that could provide some value for your week five lineup.    Without further ado, I introduce to everyone the week five rankings!

1. Aaron Boone, WR Utah: Has started off the season with a Blaze! The Cats were hammered by the Iowa passing game last week.

2. Bobby Sippio, WR Orlando: Always good for 100+ yards and a couple of TDs

Waiver Ideas for Week 5

Lots of teams on bye this week.  Only 8 teams are playing this week: Dallas, Georgia, Utah, San Jose, Philadelphia, Orlando, Iowa, and Kansas City.

In most cases, players on these teams will already have been picked up and won’t offer much bye week coverage.  With that in mind, here’s some ideas for waiver picks this week:

Emery Sammons (SPOKANE) 7 for 79, 2 TDs, rushing TD, 3 tackles, assist — could do some good things from here on it given the unpredictability of the Spokane WRs but he’s on bye this week.

Shaun Kauleinamoku (SPOKANE) 5 for 77 2 TDs — Same here but to a lesser extent

Amarri Jackson (TB) 5 for 84, TD – fair stats but no help during the bye week Continue reading

AFL Guru’s Top WRs for Week 4

You should recognize some of these names, but there are some new faces that have shot up the rankings.  On the rise are players like GA WR Maurice Purify, Utah WR Ernie Pierce, and San Jose WR Samora Goodson.  Players on the decline are Spokane WR Rajil Vagil, Mustang WR Damien Harrell, and Voodoo WR Hutch Gonzales.  How are the others being ranked for week four?  Wait no longer!

1. PJ Berry, WR New Orleans: Yardage Monster with multiple TD’s this week.
2. Jeron Harvey, WR Jacksonville: League Leader in TDs through the air. Enough Said.
3. Aaron Boone, WR Utah: The Grady to Boone combo connected six times last week!
4. Donovan Morgan, WR Philadelphia: After a week off, I fully expect D-Morg to hurt somebody!
5. Greg Orton, WR Spokane: Shootout waiting to happen against the Brigade. Expect huge numbers for Orton Continue reading

AFL Guru’s Top QBs for Week 4

1. Aaron Garcia, QB Jacksonville: Best match up for QBs this week. 300+ yards and seven TDs is a possibility
2. Tommy Grady, QB Utah: Grady should be money in front of the home crowd
3. Mark Grieb, QB San Jose: How will the loss of WR Rodney Wright slow this offense down?
4. Nick Hill, QB Orlando: Lots of weapons to choose from, and should be throwing a lot
5. JJ Raterrink, QB Kansas City: Spokane giving up a lot of points these days Continue reading

Week 3 Waiver Pickups

Here are some players to look at pickup up in Week 3 waivers…

Robert Quiroga (ORL) 8 catches for 103 yards, 3 TDs, 3 tackles, 1 assist – Did you miss out on grabbing him last week?  Don’t miss out this week.  Quiroga is an all-around threat.
Bobby Sippio (ORL) 7 catches for 104 yards, 2 TDs — Sippio is back and should take over this offense soon.  If owners slept on him during the draft, now is the time to make your move. Continue reading

Week 3 Studs and Duds

In the AFL there are the knowns, the unknowns, the known unknowns, and then the totally whacked out. The following are some of the highlights….

Studs:

Aaron Garcia, uber-veteran QB for the Jacksonville Sharks rocked the house with 17 for 19 for 308 yards and eight strikes into the fabled Zone of End.

Greg Orton, wideout for the Spokane Shock had 9 catches for an eye-popping 203 yards and 5 TDs. The team can’t get a win though, and the coaching change adds to the turmoil.

Jeron Harvey, wide receiver for Jacksonville 10 catches for an incredible 173 yards and four dances beneath the yellow iron.

Arizona wideout Trandon “Trampoline” Harvey cleaned up with Rod Windsor temporarily acting the role of dud and decoy. Harvey had 11 catches for 50 yards and 4 TDs. Expect Windsor to improve on his one TD debut and start eating into Harvey’s feast. Continue reading
