The much maligned Jim Zorn will become a figure head-coach after GM Vinny Cerrato and him had a little talk and “stripped him” of his play calling duties. I wonder if he broke his playbook in two and gave him a wet willy? He should get his papers in order because he’ll be applying for unemployment really soon, but not soon enough.
Tom Brady: Five touchdowns in one quarter? In the snow? Can the Titans be anymore worthless? This game of course was a great sign for Brady, Moss and Welker owners who had to be a little worried that the Pats weren’t going to humiliate teams and then rub their noses in it like they have in the past. Thankfully they will.
Thomas Jones: I have been down on him all season, but he keeps putting up numbers. But when it comes down to it, Washington is going to keep getting half the looks and they won’t get the Bills every week. Sell high, and 208 yards and a touchdown is very high!
Ben Roethlisberger: A 72.5% completion percentage is great and usually comes from some banana slug arm like Chad Pennington tossing long handoffs to running backs and tight ends, but Big Ben is getting completions deep and racking up big yardage every game. He seems to have complete control of the offense and is no longer the QB that has to gut it out in the final minutes and is just a good QB.
Chris Johnson: He had 128 yards and a couple big runs. He has the ability to break one at anytime and LenDale White left the game with an injury. I’m not sure where he is on the sell high/buy low slide rule, but I’d just grab it and go all nun on your opponent and smack them down with a trade.
Matt Hasselbeck: He has a great schedule, but he has a horrid offensive line which is probably going to get him injured. I really am amazed that he was so bad yesterday. He will have some bounce back games, but that o-line is too suspect to put much faith in him.
Steve Breaston: He had another solid game and continues to be worth his weight in fantasy points. And just think how many fantasy points Breaston weighs! And if Boldin’s ankle injury is anything at all Breaston gains a ton of value, and a ton of fantasy points.
Larry Fitzgerald: Drew told ya’ll to trade for him a few weeks ago and he’s had back to back great games. The guy is too good to hold down for long.
Mario Manningham: He had a few down games, but is getting a lot of looks in the endzone. He’s worth keeping around and spot starting unless you don’t like looks in the endzone.
Drew Brees: The Giants aren’t a horrible pass defense, but they are nowhere near their numbers so far this year. Brees exposed them like a child looking at a cow and being told he just ate said cow’s brother.
Lance Moore: He will have these games when Brees goes off, but it won’t happen every week. He’s a spot #3 receiver at best.
Jeremy Shockey: He looks like an ass. Not just your run of the mill guy on the street that gets all red when an old lady is impeding his forward progress, but like a guy who gets in the old lady’s face and says, “do you know who I am?!” And then punches her in the throat.
Mike Bell: The new bane of Pierre Thomas owners. He is the goalline back. If he hasn’t been picked back up he’s worth it in that offense.
Hines Ward: The guy keeps on producing. With Roethlisberger gun slinging, Ward will continue to have solid games.
Matt Forte: Hmmm, it just doesn’t look the the Bears want to run the ball and they aren’t giving Forte enough looks in the passing game. He’s not going to be a complete bust, but for where he went in many drafts he is going to be a disappointment unless the Bears realize they need to get him going so they can win.
Heath Miller: If you picked him up you did well. In the past the Steelers’ offense hasn’t had room to give Miller the targets he needs for fantasy relevancy, but this ain’t your grandpappy’s Steelers.
Ray Rice: 194 total yards and 2 touchdowns. He is off of simmer and starting to burn.
Sidney Rice: Six receptions for 178 yards. It was a good day for the Rices and Jerry was nowhere to be found. The Favre has been targeting Rice a lot and should continue to do so.
DeAngelo Williams: 172 total yards with 2 touchdowns pushes him out of the buy low slot and back into the, thank god he went off slot. Jonathan Stewart also had a huge game, but Williams was getting a lot of work near the endzone.
Clinton Portis: 124 total yards = sell and sell and then sell some more.
Kevin Smith: He had Culpepper and Stanton and no Megatron and there really wasn’t much chance for him to have a big game in Green Bay, but after his bye he has some nice matchups. Send out some feelers for him, especially if his owner is having RB bye problems.
