It feels like the season is passing before my eyes! Why God Why?!! Ok, deep breaths. There has been a little fantasy relevant news today to pass on to you, our loyal Razzball readers.
Remember to join our Weekly QB/RB/WR Contest. We just added a new prize for the winner! On top of the subscription to Fantasy Football Crystal Ball the winner will also get a weekly team from Pay The Fan. Since week one is over you can’t win the overall prize, but the $1000+ in weekly prizes are still up for grabs. Good luck!
Hakeem Nicks: He is listed as questionable and looks to be a game time decision Sunday night against the Colts. All reports point to him playing, but his late game makes it a risky proposition. If you have room and don’t have to lock all your players in early you could grab Manningham to replace him if he doesn’t go (and Manningham would be a pretty good start if Nicks sits).
Percy Harvin: He will be a game time decision with a bruised hip. It’s an early game and all signs point to him playing, except for that “Legalize Pot” sign.
Michael Bush: He looks to be another game time decision, which is bad news since he plays in the late game. I’m upgrading Run DMC either way. If he does play I doubt they will give him a full work load. This makes McFad a pretty nice start against the Rams and if Bush doesn’t play, an even prettier nice start.
Eddie Royal: He was limited on Thursday, but has improved. In yet another late game this makes him risky unless we hear mo’ better news between now and then. If we hear that he won’t play, Brandon Lloyd and Gaffney get a boost.
Beanie Wells: It’s looking a little worse for Beanie. There was some swelling in his knee and he was limited in practice. The Cards’ beat writer Kent Somers thinks they may be cautious and sit him again. I think this puts Beanie in a nice buy low position. Hightower continues to fumble, and there is no way Beanie isn’t the better pure runner.
Steven Jackson: He practiced fully and looks good to go. If SJax plays, he plays. And he plays hard.
Michael Vick: Do I trust Michael Vick? No, not to house sit my Fluffykins. But I can’t see him having a horrible fantasy game against the Lions on a fast track. No matter how horrid a passer he is, he will get rushing yards and possibly a TD. Add a few yards passing against a poor Lions secondary and you have the possibility for a big game with not much risk of a clunker.
Seneca Wallace: Delhomme didn’t practice, so Wallace should get the start. I don’t see this changing that much since Delhomme isn’t very good either, but it reminds us that the Browns don’t have any #1 or #2 fantasy options.
Kellen Winslow: He didn’t practice this week and is listed as questionable. His knee must always be killing him so he could play and play well, but if you have another option it is probably a good idea to take it.
Demaryius Thomas: It looks like he could get a few snaps this weekend, and if that goes well, he could be on his way again. Even though there were some nice numbers for Bronco’s receivers last week, I think DT has a good chance of making his way to the top of that list by mid season. Keep an eye on him.
