Falcons | Julio Jones to draw Patrick Peterson?

Fri, 28 Nov 2014 11:27:45 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones and Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson battled during their days in college, and Peterson is looking forward to shadowing Jones in Week 13. Jones had three catches (seven targets) and just 33 yards the only time the two matched up in the NFL, back in 2012. "Me feeling I'm the best corner in the league, I want the team's No. 1 receiver, period," Peterson said. "That's where you get the opportunity to gain the respect from your peers and be recognized as one of the best and one of the greats after you are done with the game. That's the kind of pressure I like to have for myself and as a team."

Fantasy Tip: Jones was able to find the end zone against Cleveland Browns corner Joe Haden last week, but Peterson matches up a bit better with Jones' speed and athleticism. At $7,600 at FantasyScore, Jones may find it tough to live up to his Week 13 price.

Lions | Golden Tate could draw Peterson matchup

Sun, 16 Nov 2014 05:59:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate could be blanketed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson Sunday, Nov. 16. ESPN analyst Merrill Hoge thinks that Peterson is better suited to cover Tate, while CB Antonio Cromartie covers WR Calvin Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($7,000; 14.0% of your cap) has loomed large all season, but this matchup could be difficult. Johnson ($7,900; 15.8%) might make for the better buy on FantasyScore today if this situation holds true.

Lions | Calvin Johnson faces stiff test

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 10:50:34 -0800

Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson will likely be followed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson, one of the top cornerbacks in the league, in Week 11. Johnson has beaten Peterson over the last two years, racking up 16 catches, 237 yards and two touchdowns, but the Cardinals won both of those matchups. "I was disappointed in (my) first half of the season; I believe I wasn't playing to my standards. I was fighting through injuries," Peterson said. "Now that I'm 100 percent, I've turned the corner, and I'm ready to roll from here on out."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will have his hands full, but he's still a must-start in all fantasy leagues. At FantasyScore, Megatron will cost you $7,900. Spending that much should be easier knowing that Johnson has had the upper hand against Peterson in the past.
