There are two kinds of heartbreak in fantasy football. Which one happened to you today?
A rough start in Arizona by Cardinals rookie QB Max Hall – rough to the tune of two interception returns for touchdowns — has resulted in a Derek Anderson sighting during the second quarter.
Chargers RB Ryan Mathews scored a rushing touchdown, so you know what that means — time for Mathews to sit on the bench. Because Mathews always gets benched when ever he shows some flashes.
Why does Cardinals QB Max Hall wear one of those wrist bands with all of the plays on it? The only thing that should be written on Hall’s arm should be — THROW IT TO LARRY — in huge block letters. Any play coming through the headset should just be translated to “throw it to Larry Fitzgerald.”
One early injury update out of San Diego, where Titans WR Kenny Britt is questionable to return after suffering a right hamstring injury.
Lions QB Matthew Stafford seems ready to play. At least that is what his four-touchdown performance against the Redskins told us.
Vikings WR Percy Harvin left Sunday’s game against the Patriots during the first quarter with a left ankle injury.
When the Redskins had one last chance to defeat the Lions in Detroit on Sunday, they chose to do so without starting QB Donovan McNabb.
