Fantasy Check

Sit of the Week vs. Lock of the Week


In the most recent edition of Fantasy Check Live, a chatter asked what was my lock of the week. My response was Brandon Jacobs.

Several chatters wanted to know if Chris Johnson was a good play even though he was the Sit of the Week on CBSSports.

My advice was to play Johnson regardless of matchup, and he amassed 105 yards from scrimmage. That's 10 fantasy points in most standard-scoring leagues. Not great, but you could do a lot worse. Consider Adrian Peterson had 99 yards from scrimmage, and Michael Turner had 56.

Meantime, Jacobs ran for 92 yards and one touchdown, which yielded 15 fantasy points. You'd take that most weeks from your No. 1 fantasy back.

Both Johnson and Jacobs owners undoubtedly expect better from their No. 1 backs. For Jacobs, that should come this week when the Giants play Kansas City.

Johnson faces a middle-of-the-road rush defense in Jacksonville this weekend but in two weeks has a favorable matchup against Indianapolis, which is giving up nearly 126 yards rushing per game.
