Throwdown Primer 12/11 – Breaking Down Tonight’s Game Boosts!

Another throwdown is upon us, and this is a very interesting one. With so few top point scorers now on either team, there is a big question on who is going to step up tonight. Obviously, Topps was in the midst of this as well, so here is a breakdown for tonight’s cards.

Tre Mason – STL 7x

I really like what Mason has been able to do with a Rams running game that is NON-existent prior his few breakout performances. The Cardinals defense is really one of the only things left on their side, with Palmer and Ellington going down. Mason could see some nice action if the pass game continues to flounder.

Verdict: Vital Piece

Kenny Britt – STL 7x

We all knew it was either him or Tavon Austin, as the other Rams receivers have done little to nothing all year. Britt has been solid after washing out of Tennessee, and might have the opportunity to catch some deep balls if Patrick Peterson is on the other receivers.

Verdict: Worth Picking Up

Drew Stanton – ARI 7x

To date, Stanton has no other cards in the game, and with no running game behind him, he will be forced to shoulder more of the burden tonight. Like Arizona, the Rams defense is stout as can be, as is their pass rush. This could be a rough night for him if he cant get the ball out ridiculously fast.

Verdict: Worth Picking Up (Only because he has no other cards)

Patrick Peterson – ARI 7x

This is a bit of a curveball, as there hasnt been a defensive player since JJ Watt to get one of these cards. Peterson also is on special teams, but may be a big part of the win if Shaun Hill falls on his face. I have not been a huge fan of defense in Huddle, but Peterson is one of the best in the game.

Verdict: Worth Picking Up

Honorable Mention:

Tavon Austin – Has had some nice games as of late, but the QB situation almost makes me too worried to chase him.

Michael Floyd – Deep ball extraordinaire, but has also shown some nice plays closer to the line of scrimmage. All going to depend on Stanton
