The Chiefs are, how do you say in English, not very good.  They may be able to put up some points and even give you some fantasy options, but their defense is going to keep them in the realm of the rotten.  Dwayne Bowe says that they’ll go after Nnamdi Asomugha in an attempt to recreate Delhomme and Cutler’s performances from last weekend.  It’s kind of an avant garde piece, that I’m guessing will go right over Chiefs’ fans heads, but it will be one for the ages and the tape of the game will go straight to the Guggenheim.

LaDainian Tomlinson: He didn’t practice and is wearing a boot.  I wear boots all the time, but I guess wearing just one means you might be a little unstable.  Or is it one of those boots they put on cars?  Now that would really slow you down.  Whatever it is, it’s not good for LT and his owners.  I have him in a league and he’s already on my bench going against the Ravens.

Darren McFadden: DMac ran over, through, and around the Chiefs last year and this should happen again.  Hopefully he’ll get a long TD to keep Bush from corngoaling him.

Terrell Owens: He thinks Trent Edwards didn’t look down field often enough against the Patriots in week one.  I tend to agree with him.  Ouch, my skin hurts. Look for Edwards to try to keep TO placated, which actually should help them as a team.  You can’t spell T-E-A-M with T-O, but you can spell torture, torment and torpedo.

Antonio Bryant: He’s looking questionable for this week.  His knee is all gross and swelled from having been cut into by maniacal surgeons.  This is more than a bit disconcerting.  I would hold for now, but if he isn’t back at full health in week 3 I’m starting to worry, a lot!

Anthony Gonzalez: He says he’ll be back in week 7.  The problem isn’t with his MCL, but with his PCL which I hear from people that have at least a clue is harder to heal.  If you are really hurting for bench space I could see dropping him.  I’m holding on for dear life since I have him on 10 out of 9 teams.  I picked him up in a non-team as well.

Hank Baskett: He’s taking AGonzo’s spot on the Colts, but unless he really wows them I see Garcon and Collie playing in front of him.  But he did convince a Playboy Playmate to marry him, who knows what his power of persuasion is.  Maybe Coach Manning will fall for him too.

Jerome Harrison: One of my preseason favorites who got hurt and had to watch James Davis smash all his toys is now the healthiest RB for the Browns.  I still think it will come down to Davis and Harrison getting the bulk of the work, but I am very interested in how Harrison plays in Denver this week.

Knowshon Moreno: Coach McDaniels says he wants to see the trio of Marshall, Royal and Moreno get the ball more this week.  No duh, as my 12 year old self would say, and say, and say.  Moreno is right on the edge of fantasy flex starter this week.  He didn’t show much last week, but this is the Browns in Mile High.  A lot depends on your options, but I might roll the dice.

Brandon Marshall: Marshall broke his media silence yesterday. Now this guy has lost what tiny sliver of brain he must have had at one time (you know, the parts that kept him breathing and eating).  He looked like, and was, an idiot yesterday while talking to the media.  Will this impact his on field performance? I don’t think so, but I’d rather him shut his hole.

Steve Smith: Smith to Delhomme: “I never really liked you as a quarterback. But as a person . . . I love you as a person.”

RCL Leagues: If you want to see how poorly I’m doing in our RCL league you better get me a link to your league standings page so I can post the overall standings!

    Start Tony Romo or Carson Palmer? I feel as though Palmer will be better in WK2. & Knowshon Moreno or Julius Jones? I’m thinking Jones.

    I am starting Michael Bush over Matt Forte…sound right? I can see Bush getting 60 yards and a TD this weekend.

    drop Shiancoe for Heap?

  4. DrewmanSucks says:

    So even after seeing how well Trent threw the ball on Monday Night Football, you’re still not giving the nod to start him against a vulnerable bucs secondary? People who, for whatever reason, might have picked him up in case Evans and Owens turned out to be this year’s Fitz and Boldin? You’re bias against the Bills is clouding your judgment young Skywalker. Look for Evans and T.O. to each have receiving TD’s and maybe even Jackson another on a screen. TB defense has an alright front seven, but they have a LB starting at safety … probably not going to be able to double either of those two. Ronde and Talib are decent corners on opposite ends of their careers, but both are vulnerable. I say sit Fred Jackson, start Trent Edwards and Terrell Owens.

    @DrewmanSucks – the problem with the bills offense at this point is that Edwards still has never shown that he is willing or able to throw the deep ball. This is what makes Jackson so valuable in this offense. He got more looks on Monday night (7) than Evans (6) or TO (3) and its not like the Pats cornes are knocking on the door for the probowl.

    @DrewmanSucks: I think Edwards is a good play this weekend. Check out my sleeper in the roundtable post. I’m not sold on him as an every week starter, but like his matchup.

    Interesting note on Harrison. I picked up Heap to play over Winslow this week, but now I’m wondering if I should drop one of those TE’s to grab Harrison.

  8. Plainview says:

    I need to start 2 WRs and a Flex (WR/RB) – here are my choices:

    Roddy White, Dwayne Bowe, Donald Driver, Ray Rice, Ahmad Bradshaw

    I was leaning toward White, Bowe and Rice but after reviewing several Fantasy sites, there seems to a lot of disagreement over White and Bowe as solid starts this week. Also, you have to like the match-ups for Driver and Bradshaw, if Week 1 is any indication – I would appreciate your thoughts.

    Doc says:

    @mgeoffriau: It looks like even though he is the healthiest that all backs will probably play. I’d keep an eye on him. Unless he just goes off I doubt he’ll fly of the wire yet.

  10. Doc

    Doc says:

    @Plainview: I’d still stick with your initial thought. I do like the Bengals D enough to go with the better player in Bowe.

    12 team ppr, moreno or mike bell at flex? Bess or lance moore at wr2 (I know, neither great options). Thoughts? Thanks.

  12. salipp says:

    Heap over Winslow even with the injury to Posluszny ?

  13. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @herschel: Bell should still get the goalline looks and Thomas could still be out. I’m going with Bell until I see Moreno play better.

    @salipp: SD is just so bad against TEs.

    @chisox: Yeah, but don’t expect a huge difference. They are tight ends.

  14. Nick says:

    @Doc: Do you start Ted Ginn Jr. or Crayton over Housh next week since he is doubtful to start….

  15. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    Crayton, but if Housh goes for a full practice today, he’ll play.

    @Doc: I like the idea of rolling the dice on Moreno. Which would you go with out of these 2 in PPR: Bradshaw, Moreno?

    Which would you go with out of these 2: Bennett, Bowe?

    thought you’d think this is funny –

    QUESTION — Estevan from Shafter, Calif., on the Saints: “Will the Saints go deep into playoffs?”

    jay_glazer: I think the Saints are definitely a tough team. They can be one of the more explosive teams as long as Drew Brees stays healthy.

    By the way, great story … coach Sean Payton has secretly been pumping up third-string RB Mike Bell to me for the last month. But get this, he even convinced his son Connor to draft Bell in his son’s fantasy league. Peyton thinks he can be the every-down pounding back they need. So Pops told Connor to take him as a late-round sleeper and promised that he’d be a great pick for him. So Connor responded, “Mike Bell? Who’s Mike Bell???” Sean said, “Trust me Connor, I might have some insight into this.”

    I didn’t like it either, I don’t really even know why I briefly considered it. In fact, after posting I felt like a ballzak for even wasting your time.

    @Jon: hah, no, it’s always good to get a second set of eyes on it.

    Would you give up McNabb to get Schaub and McCoy. I have Edwards on the bench so its not like this is a must do trade since McNabb is injured. pull trigger?

    Debating starting Lendale White over Steve Slaton. Am I crazy, or should i go with my feelin?

    Tough decision on my flex Doc. J. Jones against SF or P. Harvin against DET?

  29. Doc

    Doc says:

    @vargo: It’s not crazy, but I like Slaton.

    @Den: That is tough. I like Harvin just for his upside. Jones might be a safer play though.

    @Doc: I like the idea of rolling the dice on Moreno. Which would you go with out of these 2 in PPR: Bradshaw, Moreno?
