We’re back to a solid slate of games after a couple of weeks with very few prime matchups. It’s a double-edged sword, however. While the excitement of good games is entertaining from a viewership prospective, those lopsided scores and huge stat lines for Fantasy players might be a thing of the past.

There are a few big-time performers, though, but now you’ll need to watch the matchups a lot more closely. For instance, Georgia’s Aaron Murray and LSU’s Zach Mettenberger are good performers, but their teams face each other in what could be a defensive battle. USC and Arizona State also lock horns in what could be more of a defensive struggle than what the Sun Devils have been used to. Even Ohio State and Wisconsin now face each other, and the big numbers could be curtailed significantly. The good news is that your Fantasy opponent faces the same obstacles.

I’ll be keeping a close eye on some games near to my home. East Carolina and North Carolina has the chance to be entertaining, and don’t sleep on the Troy-Duke game. The Blue Devils were involved in a 58-55 barn burner with Pittsburgh last week. That defense had a hard time stopping anyone, but the Duke offense is underrated, especially WR Jamison Crowder.
