Welcome to Fantasy Football Sunday! Don’t forget NFL RedZone has a free preview today. I don’t get anything to shill for them, but it is just such a cool thing that I want you to enjoy it too! Week 2 will help us answer some questions, but of course will pile a bunch more on.
Be sure to get your start/sit questions in the comments and we’ll help each other out.
If you haven’t entered our Weekly QB/RB/WR Contest yet, you better! 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.
If you don’t have all the new fangled Sunday Tickets or RedZones here’s a nice site that breaks down what areas of the country see what games.
And if you like to lay a little money down you have to check out Carl’s Lock Of The Century (of the week).
Fantasy questions to be asked and hopefully answered:
Will Todd Haley get Jamaal Charles more than 11 carries against the Browns today? It is hard to believe he won’t, but you never know. If we see even a gradual increase I think we can feel pretty good about JC Superstar this season. If for some reason he gets less, it is time to worry.
Who will win the wide receiver battle in San Diego? You know the weather will be nice in SD and they are facing a poor Jaguars defensive backfield, so we should get a little clearer idea of how things will balance out between Naanee and Floyd.
What is up with Mike Sims-Walker? Without The Champ Bailey on him we’ll see if he can catch a ball and if he does, what will that mean for Mike Thomas’ numbers?
Can Jahvid Best rush for more that 20 yards with Shaun Hill or anyone for that matter, at the helm? Will the home field turf help him?
Will Chris Johnson get his 13th 100 yard rushing game in a row to keep him on track to breaking Barry Sander’s 14 game streak? Of course he has to get by a Steelers defense that only gives up 100 yards rushing about once a decade.
Will Calvin Johnson be able to get back on the elite receiver track with Shaun Hill at the helm? We’ve seen Megatron do well with the cream of the crap out there, so I’m cautiously optimistic.
Is Darren McFadden for real? He gets an easy matchup at home and with Michael Bush hurting he could really cement his place as the #1.
Will the hardcore Manning on Manning action cause the world to collapse in on itself?
Will Shonn Greene take back control of the running back duties? Or has LDT been drinking from the fountain of youth? Which I think is located on Roger Clemens’ ranch somewhere.
Can Brandon Jackson pay off for all those owners who grabbed or paid a lot of money for him? And does he need to have a solid game to squelch Marshawn Lynch trade rumors?
With a great matchup will Ahmad Bradshaw shine or will we see Brandon Jacobs assert himself?
