If you're a regular viewer to NFL Fantasy Live (on the NFL Network daily at 5 p.m. ET), you will know we've driven the Jordan Cameron bandwagon from the moment Norv Turner took over as offensive coordinator. Cameron has already been one of the biggest breakout stars of the 2013, but he made a huge impact in Week 3. Cameron had three touchdown receptions against the Vikings in Week 3. The Browns would defeat the Vikings in what came as a shock to some, including Adrian Peterson's daughter who called out the star running back for losing to Cleveland. Cameron is now an 84 OVR, but the number figures to increase weekly as Brian Hoyer takes over. Hoyer increased five points to 76.
We don't normally think about kickers because this is Madden, who kicks the ball? But Matt Prater received a two-point increase this week with as his AWR goes up one to 80 and his KAC is now an 87 (+1).
Hey, what did my guy Zoltan Mesko do to deserve a loss of three points? Zoltan is now an 81 thanks to losses in KPW (down -1 to 93) and KAC (down -2 to 91).
Six predictions for Sunday
Jordan Cameron is not going to catch three touchdowns this week. Sorry, I know, I know. Not a huge prediction with this one. But he's one of the better tight ends in the NFL right now. Outside of Jimmy Graham, there isn't a tight end who has played better. He will lead the Browns in receiving yards. Oh yeah, a prediction. The Browns upset the Bengals this week.
One of our Next Gen superstars, Trent Richardson, is going to have 147 rushing yards and two touchdowns for the Indianapolis Colts this week. Richardson gave us a small taste with a rushing touchdown on his first Colts carry of the week. Richardson might have the game to himself, too, as Ahmad Bradshaw was not seen at practice on Friday. Go ahead and give Richardson 36 receiving yards, too. With a solid running attack, look for Andrew Luck to become more of a Troy Aikman or Tom Brady in the early years quarterback. That's not a knock. Just don't expect Luck to put up Peyton Manning-like numbers in Indy as the team now focuses more on winning than passing statistics.
Did you know that Adam Rank won last year's Expert's League title? Oh that's right, it's like the only thing he ever talks about. Well congratulations, Rank. You finally did something. What have you done for us lately? Let's worry about 2013 and stop living in the past. Typical Lakers fan, am I right? Oh, if you found this useful (as if) check him out on the latest "Dave Dameshek Football Program". And follow him on Twitter, please. He's taking us to lunch if he gets 17 more Twitter followers today. And we only got 15 the last time, so step up fantasy enthusiasts!
