Mike Sims-Walker, one of our preseason fantasy sleepers, has two touchdowns in the first half against the Titans. Overall he has five catches for 62 yards. He’s clearly surpassed Torry Holt as the best fantasy wideout in Jacksonville.
Hey how’s this for a weird stat line — Lions running back Kevin Smith has rushed 12 times for just 14 yards against the Bears, but he’s scored two touchdowns!
Oh, and here’s a note on how unpredictable the NFL and fantasy football can be week in and week out.
Bengals running back Cedric Benson, who was a must-start on just about every Web site and was voted the top start on NFL.com (34 percent), has rushed for 25 yards on seven carries.
Why he has just seven rushes against a terrible Browns run defense is confusing, if nothing else. Hopefully he’ll see more work in the second half.
