Michael Fabiano has taken a siesta, so allow me to step-in and take a look at some of the top fantasy storylines on a Wednesday.
Donovan McNabb promises a ‘special’ season: This should be your first goal of the 2011 season: don’t get benched for Rex Grossman. Your second goal, get out of Washington. More on the Redskins in a moment. The only thing special from a fantasy perspective for McNabb would be if he lands in Arizona. McNabb has shown that he can thrive with an elite receiver (just look at his numbers with Terrell Owens), so a combination of McNabb and Larry Fitzgerald would be fantasy gold.
Chris Cooley says that the ‘Skins need a receiver: Cooley made a guest appearance on the “Cover Two” podcast, saying that his team needs a big-time receiver. No kidding. McNabb gets the ridicule, but just who was he throwing to last season? And even most of his career? The Redskins have so many fantasy questions to answer once free agency and training camp get underway. Right now, only Cooley has significant value. And even then, Cooley needs to get into the end zone more.
Kenny Britt emerges as NFL’s most annoying receiver: Most NFL receivers are enigmatic. Britt has taken it to a new level. Britt keeps getting arrested, then he curses the commissioner and even threatens retirement. Britt is one of those guys who should have a spot on your fantasy roster. He has the talent and at some point you hope that he gets it.
