New #FantasyFootball Insider Blog: NFL/NBA Big Game Mashup Freeroll Suggestions for @ScoreStreaker By @ViggieSmalls765

This Sunday, ScoreStreak will offer you a unique contest in honor of the Super Bowl, called Big Game Mashup. The game will be a combination of the NFL and the NBA. The categories will be Total TD’s, All-Purpose yards and NBA Points. Let’s take a look at some of the guys that may be able to help you in this contest.
NFL – Total TD’s – Tom Brady vs Seattle
I’m going to use Tom Brady in the 3 touchdown slot. I believe the Patriots are going to use “Deflategate” as extra motivation and that they will be well prepared for the Seahawks. Brady had a great year and including the playoffs, Brady has thrown for 4702 yards and 39 touchdowns. Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman are banged up after suffering injuries in the NFC Championship game, however they both will give it a go with the Lombardi trophy on the line. The Patriots are the one team that won’t be afraid to challenge Thomas and Sherman. Look for Brady and the Patriots to set the Seahawks secondary up by feeding LeGarrette Blount in the run game, which will open up the pass game, where I expect the Patriot’s receivers to get open and make big plays for Brady.
NFL – All – Purpose Yards – LeGarrette Blount vs Seattle
LeGarrette Blount had his Patriots coming out party in the AFC Championship game against the Colts, when he had 30 carries for 148 yards and 3 touchdowns. Though, the Seahawks have the best defense in the league, I expect Blount to get a similar work load and put up similar numbers, less the numbers of touchdowns scored. As mentioned above, the Seahawks defense is a bit banged up. After starting the year as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Blount has a chance to get the last laugh. Since returning to the Patriots on 11/23, Blount has rushed for 696 yards and 8 touchdowns, including the playoffs. I’m putting Blount into the 120 All-Purpose yards category this week as for the Patriots to win the Super Bowl, they’ll need to get the ground game involved.
NBA – Points – Carmelo Anthony vs Los Angeles Lakers
This will be the trickiest of all Mash Up categories as there are only 2 games on the schedule in the NBA. There aren’t many players capable of putting up 30 points and the one guy, Carmelo Anthony, has been dealing with injuries all year and is in danger of being shut down for the year. If you plan on using Anthony, make sure you check back prior to the contest starting to ensure that Anthony will indeed be playing. As the only real threat to put up 30 points on any given night, I’m throwing Anthony into the 30 point slot. For the games that Anthony has played, he’s averaging 24.1 points and 6.7 rebounds on the year. Add to this, the Knicks play a Lakers team that will be without Kobe Bryant for the rest of the year. As long as Anthony plays, this is the main play for the 30 point slot.
