Miller’s Week 2 NFL Fins & Fantasy Pick

September 15th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Miller’s Week 2 NFL Fins & Fantasy Picks:

Miami Dolphins (+2.5) at Indianapolis Colts (O/U 43)

Last week, the Fins beat an under-whelming Browns offensive unit by pressuring, sacking and taking the ball away. They did just enough on offense using WR Wallace mainly as a decoy (faced pro bowl CB Haden), but with other WR’s Hartline (TD) and B.Gibson producing well. The Colts, meanwhile, barely beat perennial cellar-dweller Oakland despite giving up 4 sacks to the Raiders. I propose this: If the Raiders can put that much pressure on Indy QB Luck, imagine what the Dolphins’ vaunted front 7 will do this week. Miami’s defensive line is considered among the league’s elite, and pass rushers Cam Wake (2.5 sacks) along with O.Vernon and rook D.Jordan are certainly licking their chops after watching their opponent’s game tape. Add to the mix that Indy has just lost it’s most productive RB (Ballard) for the year (Thursday in practice) and one of their featured TE’s D.Allen is listed as “doubtful”. Yet, Luck still has WR’s Wayne and Hilton along with TE Fleener and RB Bradshaw. This is why they will score just 2 TD’s and a FG. Miami’s offense can run on Indy’s defensive line and they will try anyways with L.Miller getting most of the touches. Expect 90+ total yards from their backs. Look for the combo of Wallace-Hartline-Gibson to be active combining for 200+ yards with Tanny hitting at least 2 of those named for TD’s against a very beatable secondary. I expect the O-line to show up this week. Oh, and KI Sturgis will once again boot 3 FGs. Prediction: MIA 23, IND 17.

Having already picked NE to beat the Jets on Thursday (Facebook), here are other teams I like to win: NYG (upset of week over Denver), SF (mild upset at SEA), ATL, CAR, CHI, GB, DAL, BAL, HOU, PHI, N.O., ARZ, CIN (Mon).

Fantasy Sleepers:
QB: Tannehill, Eli, Henne, T.Pryor, Bradford, Cutler, Palmer, Dalton
RB: D.Wilson, DMC, DeAngelo, Lacy, B.Tate, Gio Bernard
WR: Hilton, Hartline, R.Randle, Boldin (Browner out), Shorts, H.Douglass, J.Jones(GB), Marlon Brown, L.Moore, M.Williams
TE: Fleener, J.Thomas, J.Cook, Olsen, Celek, Pettigrew, Gresham, Cameron
DF: MIA, NYG, SF, CHI, BAL, HOU, ARZ, CIN
That’s all for now.
