There is good news and bad news. The founder of fantasy football, Michael Fabiano is still on vacation, but this is the last day before I start my vacation. I’ll let you decide which is the good news and which is the bad news. Or, if both are good news.
In any event, let’s take a look at some storylines.
Run like the wind: Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall is working hard to regain his 4.4 speed and he is using the same workout regimen that he used coming out of the draft in 2006, according to the Sun-Sentinel. This is good news, especially for QB Chad Henne. The Dolphins quarterback faces the second-easiest schedule for quarterbacks this year, and he is one of my fantasy sleepers for 2011. A motivated Marshall can only help this.
A quarterback position to ponder: Excuse the pun, but Vikings rookie QB Christian Ponder wants to be the starter this season. Well, that’s better than aspiring to sit the bench, right? Rookie quarterbacks just don’t make an impact in fantasy football. At least not a good one. But Ponder will be the rookie I will keep an eye on just in case I need an emergency replacement. But seriously, keep an eye on Henne.
Pump the brakes on surgery talk: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger said recently that his foot was doing fine, but surgery was still an option. Today, Roethlisberger’s agent said, “psych!” As I wrote yesterday, don’t adjust your fantasy board because of this stuff.
