I’m still here in Cincy and will be going to the game tonight, so tomorrow’s post may just be drunk me with my head passed out on the letter eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Peyton Hillis, wow, just Wow! 220 total yards and 2 touchdowns against a Patriots team that hadn’t given up 100 yards rushing to a running back this season. This guy (as Coach Gruden would say) was out chopping wood all day. Just keep throwing him out there and thank the fantasy Gods for their blessings on your team.
Arian Foster: And another Wow! Foster is turning into a great back right in front of our eyes. If you own him in a dynasty don’t sweat Ben Tate, Foster is the real deal.
Matthew Stafford: He reinjured his right shoulder, but they don’t know how bad it is. Since it is the same shoulder I wouldn’t get my hopes up, which sucks because he was playing well and his schedule looked great. Shaun Hill may or may not be able to go this week, which is just great for those wondering if they should grab him off waivers. If you are hurting at QB and we know Stafford is out for a while, Hill will be a good grab.
James Jones: For some reason he just can’t hang onto the ball, but he still had 123 yards and a touchdown and should continue to see more looks than Driver even when he returns.
Javarris James: Four carries and two touchdowns is a pretty good number. Well, that’s more than one number, but I digress. Of course that won’t happen again and he’s not worth grabbing, but it’s still something he can tell his grand kids about. But Donald Brown might have a different story to tell.
Dez Bryant: Watching this guy is like watching Randy Moss in his rookie season. Just throw the ball up to him. And Jon Kitna can see it too, which has been pretty bad news for Miles Austin (or should that read “ugly bad news”?).
Jacob Tamme: He had 17 targets and is now a PPR stud. With all the tight end injuries this season Tamme has become a top 5 tight end very quickly.
Ryan Mathews: He reinjured his ankle and is cementing his dud status for this season. He has a bye week next week, so he will have time to heal up. I could see dropping him if the injury looks bad and you have someone that can help you immediately. If you can get him cheap in dynasty, go ahead.
Jacoby Ford: Talk about a breakout game. Ford almost single handedly beat the Chiefs with his 6 receptions and 148 yards and a 94 yard kickoff return for a TD. The Raiders keep searching for a consistent receiver so there is a good chance Ford starts to see more targets, but it depends on what he does with those targets of course. I’m going to support team Jacob instead of team Darrius.
Michael Vick: He picked up where he left off, just like his battery mate Desean Jackson. Both are worthy of every week startage.
Santonio Holmes: He had a nice game and looks to finally be coming around. I don’t see any reason not to get him in your lineup on a weekly basis.
Aaron Hernandez: Finally a touchdown! Wait, there were two? Wow! AHer still has to compete with the Gronkster, but it’s good to see him in there on the goal line.
Steve Johnson: The guy just keeps producing. With a name like that, you would think he’d be selling insurance or running for 2,000 yards.
Percy Harvin: Even though he looked hobbled in practice he came out on Sunday and looked like a man-beast. This guy is just getting better and better. Even though he didn’t score, this game felt like a statement game.
Brett Favre: Just when you think he is done in and done for he throws for close to 450 yards and 2 touchdowns. He’s not going to be consistent, but he’s worth a QB 2 spot.
Seyi Ajirotutu: He helped a lot of teams this week, but sadly don’t expect it to keep up. The offices of VJax, Floyd and Gates will serve him with cease and desist papers soon enough.
Ronnie Brown: He ended up with 99 total yards and a touchdown, but got most of that on the first drive. I think it’s time to take of his training wheels and see what he can do.
Matt Schaub: Yet another crapfest of a game. I can’t say my Schaub-led team is doing too fantastic, but he gets the Jags next week. That will help.
