Benson in trouble again

Cedric Benson was in the news once again over the weekend. It wasn’t for an outstanding effort in offseason workouts or a report on his rehabilitation from surgery to repair a fractured leg near his ankle. It was for another incident with the police.

Positive news on Delhomme

The name Jake Delhomme doesn’t incite a lot of excitement in fantasy football. The veteran out of Louisiana-Lafayette was buried on the New Orleans depth chart for the first five seasons of his NFL career, and he didn’t have much value in fantasy circles until he went to Carolina. While he did have two solid seasons from 2004-05, one of which led to a Super Bowl appearance, Delhomme’s numbers over the past two seasons have been mediocre.

RB Brown making progress

Ronnie Brown was the most valuable running back in fantasy football after the first six weeks of last season. Not LaDainian Tomlinson, Adrian Peterson or Brian Westbrook. It was Ronnie Brown.

Leinart, Warner battle in Arizona

A recent report out of Arizona suggested that while Matt Leinart remains atop the Cardinals’ depth chart, Kurt Warner is very much in the mix. If you’re a fantasy football enthusiast, you’re pulling for the latter.

Broncos release RB Henry

The backfield situation in Denver became a little more clear on Monday, as the team decided to part ways with Travis Henry. The veteran rushed for 691 yards on 167 carries (4.1 avg.) with four touchdowns in 12 games (7 starts) last season, but his failures down the stretch made him less of an asset to the Broncos and fantasy footballers alike. Now a free agent, Henry joins Shaun Alexander on the list of past-their-prime runners who are looking for work.
