Straight Outta Mancavedom: Week 10 Mancrushes

Is there a better activity in the world than chilling down in the man cave discussing football and girls? Red-blooded American males say it in unison, "No." Of course not. This is why every Thursday (or in this week's case, late Saturday) FFWWH will let you all in on our own couch talk about football. And girls. And football playing girls. But mostly, football playing guys. So here's our week ten bromances. Zach Fein The Oakland Raiders are terrible. They've given up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, including an average of 17.9 in the last six weeks to the top scorer on opponents' teams. Those top rushers gained an average of 115 total yards (96 on the ground) and a touchdown DeAngelo Williams has had 16.9 fantasy points per game in the last four weeks (that number rises to 21.4 is you take out his stinker against Tampa Bay), and at least 17 touches in four of the past five weeks. You can expect Williams to be a top-12 back this week as he puts up 100 yards and a score against the disordered Raiders. Alex Kozora The Raiders are a mess.

And the Panthers will greatly benefit from that this weekend. Flying under the radar is Muhsin Muhammad. Steve Smith should be blanked all day by Nmandi Asomugha, and with the recent release of DeAngelo Hall, who was oh so wrong on this prediction , Moose gets to face special teamer Chris Johnson.
The Raiders have a below average pass defense, 20th in the league. Jake Delhomme has thrown for two touchdown passes in four of the last five games while Muhammad hasn't had a game where he's caught less than three passes this season. And against Oakland, three catches would be all he needs.
Tosten Burks So everybody's picking on the Raiders. Well I got news for ya'll, a great start for you is... Man. I can't do it. I want to find a Raider who could have any fantasy value but it's impossible. Geezus they're bad. But you know who's good? (Ahhhh look at that segway.) Tyler Thigpen. Don't check my pulse, he's dropped 480 yards since he got the starting job two weeks ago and now he faces the worst pass defense in football. Cromartie will be back, but the San Diego Chargers still have no clue how to defend tight ends. Gonzo and Thigpen will roll... To a loss. A fantasy field day NFL loss.
