The crystal ball we are all looking into week in and week out needs a little fine-tuning. I am all in going forward on the following QB’s to get me to the championship.

1. Garrett Gilbert – Apollos
2. Zach Mettenberger – Express
3. Josh Woodrum – Stallions
4. Aaron Murray – Legends
Gilbert is stealing the show, and Spurrier has prepared his quarterback well. Tune in Week 5 against the Iron defense. With the new Berg in for the Express and an immediate spark in the offense, points will be scored, add Mettenberger. Woodrum bounced back from injury; if he continues to play from behind, we will see the points add up. Murray and the Legends are finally on the track we all saw before the season opener and the coaching corral. He is the hybrid passing/rushing quarterback that is sure to get fantasy points. As for the Fleet and Hotshots, it seems the injuries are looming, and we could see yet another QB change. Perez is on the hot seat, he may have been your guy for four weeks but look elsewhere to build a championship roster. Woodside is losing air yard points to the run game, and Coach Riley surprised me running on the goal-line five times and not punching it in. As a coach commits to the run, I will commit a QB proven to air out the ball.

Running Backs:

1. Kenneth Farrow II – Commanders
2. Zac Stacy – Express
3. Jhurell Pressley – Hotshots
4. Trent Richardson – Iron

Farrow is an every-down dependable back. Keep an eye on the handcuff Trey Williams moving forward and lock in Farrow. Stacy has been lackluster so far, but with defensive schemes now having to play more zone, Stacy will bust through the line and start tallying up the rushing yards. Keep an eye on Badie as the handcuff. Pressley’s moving into the starter role for the Hotshots and locking into lineups. He gained nearly 8 yards per carrying in week 4 and will start finding the endzone moving forward. Yes, so long as Richardson plays in the game, we will assume 1 or more touchdowns will be scored. Keep an eye on the backup Ross to take carries away from Richardson, until they are within 10 yards of the Goal line.

Wide Receivers:

1. Charles Johnson – Apollos
2. Malachi Jones – Legends
3. Greg Ward Jr. – Commanders
4. De’Mornay Pierson El – Stallions

No surprise, Gilbert to Johnson will continue strong and lead your team to the championship. Jones is the future up-and-coming start to rise with QB Murray for the Legends, bold prediction; Jones becomes top 4 overall WR fan points. Ward will become the target monster moving forward for the Commanders. I see him Top 10 overall in Targets and the first AAF punt return for a touchdown. Stallions have the best schedule moving forward to make up the ground. Pierson El and Woodrum seem to have a strong connection moving forward. Pierson El is at the top of target to catch ratio’s and will continue to climb. Other WR receiving votes to bench and available in most leagues:
Reece Horn, Brian Brown, L’Damian Washington, Marquis Bundy, and Chris Thompson.

Tight Ends:

1. Gavin Escobar – Fleet
2. Gerald Christian – Hotshots
3. Wes Saxton Jr. – Iron
4. Bug Howard – Legends

Escobar will continue to get the points despite who is throwing to him. Continue to lock him in weekly as Baugh will not continue the vulture targets. Christian is making up the lost ground for Arizona, target Christian moving forward to also become THE top target for Wolford. He will become the dink and dunk duo master. Saxton moving forward seems the healthiest Iron on the field, and if Perez is throwing, Saxton is my prediction of the first Iron TD pass. Howard, the converted TE from WR, will be the competition for Malachi Jones on Targets. I believe Legends will be pass heavy over the run game and see the majority come from behind victories. If it’s not Jones, the ball will find Howard.

Chalupa Batman! Week 10 championship perfect lineup to seek Gold:

QB Gilbert
RB Farrow
WR Johnson
