Here’s a look at some of the top fantasy stories on a Tuesday. And if you missed it — and need to vent — as always, it’s the Monday Nightmare.
Blount blames Johnson: Bucs RB LeGarrette Blount struggled on Sunday vs. the Panthers, which was a bummer for those of us expecting a huge game against the Panthers. But Blount took the high road, blaming it all on Josh Johnson as reported by the St. Petersberg Times. Blount said that the Panthers were stacking the box with Johnson in the game, and that’s true. But come on, man. Do you have to call out your young quarterback like that? That might not have been a right cross like the one that dropped Byron Hout, but geeze Blount, this was your teammate.
Redskins still waiting: The Redskins are still waiting on word about the suspension of TE Fred Davis. Really? Now, #shanahanigans aren’t directly involved, but come on. This couldn’t be any other team? In any event, many of you have played Davis this year so you’d better have somebody ready to go as fantasy insurance. The guy you want to pick up is Brent Celek. Ed Dickson has a nice matchup this week for the Ravens, too, but Joe Flacco might only need to throw like eight passes.
Hillis expected to play: Word on Twitter is that Peyton Hillis is going to start on Thursday night against the Steelers, who are pretty strong against the run and will make him a low-end flex play. Which I imagine is not the way you want to start playoff week.
