Reggie Bush is hurt? This can’t be! The dude is worthless. There is absolutely no reason to ever draft, trade for, or otherwise rely on this guy for anything. He hasn’t practiced this week and his knee is swollen. He hasn’t been ruled out, but I wouldn’t start him or say nice things about him.
Ronnie Brown: I have yet to lament the fallen soldier. Mr. Brown is done for the year. The Razzball flag was flying at half mast at Razzball headquarters yesterday and will be for the remainder of the season. Thankfully the injury was to his foot instead of his knee and he should be ready to go for sleeper status next year.
Lex Hilliard: Lex isn’t going to take over Ricky’s place while Ricky takes over Ronnie’s. Lex is Ricky’s backup not his wildcat partner, but with that offensive line and Ricky’s age it’s not a bad place to be. He’s worth a stash.
Brian Westbrook: He’s out at least three weeks. I really don’t see him coming back this season and if he does I don’t think he’ll stay back. Can you drop him? Hard to say. If I owned him I would probably hold on, but if you’re in a shallow league and holding him can hurt you then I would let him go.
Bernard Berrian: I was fairly high on Bernard in preseason, but he has been struggling with a hamstring problem most of the season and just can’t get on track. Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin are enough to help the Vikings going through the air.
Dwayne Bowe: He’s out 4 weeks for PED’s and Chris Chambers and Lance Long will benefit from his absence, but they get the Steelers at home and the Steelers are the only team to have a winning record at Arrowhead, besides KC of course, but you could figure that out on your own, and why am I still talking?
Jamal Lewis: He gets the Lions and the lion’s share of the carries, and I still can’t recommend starting him. I think that says something not so good about Jamal Lewis. And now Jerome Harrison is in the dog house and Chris Jennings is the #2 RB. Owning Browns running backs is hazardous to the health of your fantasy team.
Maurice Jones-Drew: He’s really good. Oh, and he gets the Bison’s run defense. I’m not saying to just start him, but to also bench your other players so it will be even more humiliating to your opponent when you beat him or her.
Jason Witten: If I had to vote right now I think I’d vote Witten the biggest fantasy failure of the year. There are plenty of deserving nominees, but Kelly Rippa! he’s been a disappointment. Many had him as the #1 overall tight end and really there was no way he should be any less than the top 3. He is still a #2 TE, but I could see playing matchups off the waiver wire in games like the Redskins this weekend.
Joseph Addai: Before Donald Brown was injured there were some signs that he could make a move on that #1 running back position, but it looks like he might have lost his chance. Addai has been a big part of a perfect season so far and I doubt they are going to switch things up too soon. Keep Brown firmly bench entrenched until further notice.
Randy Moss: You don’t sit Moss, but Darelle Revis has had his number. This will be a fun matchup to watch. Last week Moss was moved around a lot and got some mismatches against Indy, but this week he’ll be shadowed by Revis. Look for Wes Welker to have a big game.
Knowshon Moreno: With Correll Buckhalter banged up and Moreno getting the bulk of the work last week I think we’ll continue to see Moreno featured in the matinee performances. He has a decent schedule and I’m looking forward to watching him play, especially against the Chargers.
Bernard Scott: We’ve been getting a lot of start/sit questions about Scott and as the week goes on I’m leaning more and more toward Scott having a big day. Oakland is just plain inept and Scott has some skills as you could see on his kickoff return against the Steelers. Get him into that flex position.
