Paradise Picks is a collection of 5 low value players who are decent spot starts for owners dealing with bye week gaps or injuries. These players are high risk/high reward plays that may be the difference between a win and a loss.
Sam Bradford vs. Arizona
The Cardinals appear to have given up on the 2010 season, with an anemic offense and a defense that cannot stop the run or get pressure on the quarterback. This bodes well for Sam Bradford and the Rams offense as they try to make the playoffs in the weak NFC west. Look for Bradford to have 3 TD’s and at least 250 passing yards.
Brent Celek vs. Houston
The one player who has been drastically hurt by the emergence of Michael Vick is tight end Brent Celek. Vick does not look for the tight end very often, as his feet act as a safety valve instead of dump off passes to the tight end. I actually like Celek against the leagues worst pass defense, because I predict that Houston ‘s secondary will blow coverage on the tight end because they will be so concerned will Maclin and Jackson.
Lee Evans vs. Minnesota
The Vikings appear to be reenergized under the helm of Leslie Frazier, winning his first game has head coach last week against the Redskins. I think the Vikes will win this game, however I like how the Bills passing offense moves the ball and I think Lee Evans will score this week. Evans is a solid deep threat and the Bills will try to exploit the Vikings secondary with a few deep balls on Sunday.
Danny Amendola vs. Arizona
As I mentioned earlier, the Cardinals have all but given up on both sides of the ball, while the Rams have been surprisingly good offensively this year. The Rams should be able to pass at will against the Cardinals, with a majority of the touches going to Danny Amendola. Look for 8 catches for 80 yards and a TD from the undrafted WR out of Texas Tech.
Seattle D vs. Carolina
I was incorrect with my pick of Cleveland ‘s D against the Panthers last week, as the Panthers surprised everyone by almost beating the Browns in Clevland. I am betting against the Panthers again this week as they head into Seattle to face the Seahawks. The ‘Hawks are tough at home and really need this win to keep pace in the NFC west. I think the 12th man will be out in force, propelling the defense to a defensive touchdown or two.
