Now that the Monday Nightmare is over for some of you (others, understandably are rejoicing), it is time for a quick look at the fantasy news of the day to get your started on an alternative rankings Tuesday.
It’s Tebow Tuesday: That’s right, NFL Network and NFL.com have become all Tebow, all the time. Did you see the headline for the Brady Quinn story today on NFL.com? It said, “Tebow’s teammate flies to Japan to be with sick girlfriend.”
Alright, it didn’t say that, but you bought it for a moment, right?
We all expected this to happen, but sources are reporting that Tim Tebow is going to be the starting quarterback for the Broncos. This was the worst kept secret since, well, Tebow was eventually going to be elevated to starter. We all expected this. And what doe this mean to you, the fantasy enthusiasts? Pick him up. As our pal Michael Fabiano says, all Tebow does is score fantasy points. I am also still hanging on to Eric Decker this week and next unless you play in a league with a lot of good waiver-wire options.
Benson deal far from settled: As a fantasy enthusiast who has been stashing Bernard Scott for weeks as my handcuff for Ced Benson, can we please put an end to this drama? The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting that no decision is expected this week. This is anti-awesome. Benson is a good start this week as a RB2 against the Colts. But with bye weeks necessitating waiver-wire moves, that extra space that Scott keeps hogging is getting a little much. I might have to make some calls to our league office at 345 Park. Heavens knows they have given me enough calls about stuff.
Bucs making plans for life without Blount: If you are holding LeGarrette Blount, you might want to add Earnest Graham to your team this week. Blount could miss time this week with a knee injury, and coach Raheem Morris has said that Graham will be his featured back. Not that he would be an elite option, he is still somebody to have, and he is a great option in PPR leagues.
