Josh Brown has now kicked a pair of 54-yard field goals against the Giants. That’s 10 fantasy points in a lot of formats.
It’s also nine more points than Peyton Manning has right now.
The Vikings are absolutely destroying the Colts’ patchwork offensive line, and Manning is paying for it. He’s thrown for 69 yards with no touchdowns and 1 interception.
So if you asked me who to start this week, Manning or Brown, I would have told you Manning and been dead wrong for one full half.
Bad luck for owners with Ryan Grant and Larry Johnson…
Grant has been a non-factor against the Lions, as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are throwing the ball all of them. There’s still a lot of time, but coach Mike McCarthy could decide to rest Grant if the game is out of hand in the second half.
Johnson is facing stacked fronts with Tyler Thigpen under center for the Chiefs. L.J. has a mere 19 yards on 10 carries.
