While the Jets have fallen badly, the Patriots have picked it up with two stellar offensive showings in the last two weeks. Tom Brady has found his rhythm, while tight end Rob Gronkowski is growing more dangerous each week. Here’s a look at the key players on each side and which players belong in your fantasy line-up.
The Oakland Raiders, projected to finish last in the AFC West division this year by pretty much everyone, open the 2014 regular season next Sunday against the New York Jets on the road, and it could be the beginning of a long season for the Silver & Black.
The Jets marquee offseason signing is more than just a number one receiver for Gang Green.
The Denver Broncos seemed unstoppable, even unbeatable at times during the 2013 season. But, when the Vince Lombardi Trophy was on the line, they were blown out by the Seattle Seahawks.
While these two teams did play each other during pre-season, it’s safe to say that only a fool would look at that game footage in August for an inside edge.
The Oakland Raiders will be done for the 2013 season when that final whistle blows on Sunday afternoon at the O.co Coliseum, but the Denver Broncos have their sights set on the Super Bowl.
The 4-11 Oakland Raiders can’t keep the 12-3 Denver Broncos from winning the AFC West, but they might be able to stop their division rivals from claiming the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs if the Silver and Black can end a five-game losing streak.
The Denver Broncos are the 2012 AFC West Champions and have won seven in a row. Led by future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, the team is playoff bound and a few more wins will ensure the team of a first round bye. It’ll be a huge challenge for the Raiders to try to win this game.
Big names dominate fantasy football drafts, but often don’t pay off. Check out these reaches and sleepers to get an edge.
