There’s still a lot of uncertainty floating around out there in Fantasy Football about who is or isn’t going to play. A lot of studs are going to be game time decisions. So a reminder to all you Razzballers out there- stay tuned to the “Comments” section of this article for our continuing updates on all these situations.
Alex Smith – He gets to face the Jaguars pass defense today. In standard format he’s projected ahead of Carson Palmer and Matt Schaub.
Dennis Dixon – I know nothing about him- I’ll admit that right now. He is surrounded by talent, though, and I’ll take that over a good QB with no help around him any day.
Vince Young – You shouldn’t get too excited about him. I’m already tired of the “all he does is win” lines. Apparently the talking heads didn’t get the memo about how mobile quarterbacks can only succeed long term in Madden dynasties. The Titans are facing the Cardinals this week and you have to envision them being forced to put the ball in the air.
Chester Taylor – Adrian Peterson has been battling slight injuries this week (nothing major) plus the Vikings are going up against the Bears. It’s reasonable to assume Taylor’s workload will increase.
Kevin Faulk – For PPR. I thought about suggesting Sammy Morris for non PPR but I think his projections are way too optimistic. The Patriots ought to be throwing the football often against the Saints and Faulk should be good for his usual 8-10 in PPR.
Chris Jennings – I identified him last week as a potentially productive player and he posted almost 10 points. Don’t be surprised if he usurps Jamal Lewis (possibly this week) and is a solid flex option in deeper leagues from here on out.
Donnie Avery – I know it sounds crazy but he’s still available in a lot of leagues. The Rams are playing the Seahawks today so he has a great matchup as well.
Antonio Bryant – He’s still available in a lot of leagues and for good reason. The Bucs offense has fallen apart so there’s not a lot of production to go around in Tampa. Going up against Atlanta is about as good a matchup as you can ask for, though.
Robert Meachem – The “touchdown machine.” It’s hard to count on him getting a ton of catches or yards but in that offense the potential is always there.
Nate Washington – Hopefully the Titans will fall behind the Cardinals and be forced to throw the football a ton. If that happens all the receivers will benefit including Nate.
John Carlson – He was horrible last week (as in, no touches). He needs to put up or be banished from all Fantasy rosters stat!
Todd Heap – Same as last week: “He may not be that exciting but he catches passes ever week and sneaks his way in to the double-digit category when he nabs a touchdown. “
Atlanta – They are facing the Buccaneers so the chances of turnovers, etc. receive a huge boost.
Seattle – The Rams are the Rams, plus there’s a chance that Steven Jackson won’t play- even if he does he’s dinged up.
