Happy “getaway” Friday everybody! Or maybe it’s just me who is getting away for a week. Yes, please try to contain your excitement. Let’s get to the fantasy.
Moss looking good: The 49ers had their first formal practice, and WR Randy Moss impressed with his “cut and quick feet” according to reports. He even hooked up with Alex Smith on a long touchdown bomb. I hate to do this, but here comes the wet blanket. (Oh wait, it’s the 49ers, I love to be the wet blanket.) It’s easy to look good when you’re running around in shorts and a jersey in the middle of May, so I would caution fantasy enthusiasts from reading too much into this. To me, it’s like when announcers say stuff like, “He was kicking 70-yarders in practice.” I mean, I hope he looks good in practice. And seriously, don’t make me link to the Allen Iverson practice rant.
Britt making cuts: Titans WR Kenny Britt is running at full speed and making cuts, and said “hopefully,” he’ll be ready for the upcoming season. “Hopefully” being a rather troubling word. Especially when you consider his knee still swells after workouts. But he’s got a couple of months to get back to full strength. And if he does, Britt could be a nice sleeper for some fantasy enthusiast.
Wilson signed with Giants: Love the new CBA, which compels players to sign quickly. I know I’ve written this before, but the talk around the league is we’ve seen the end of the August holdouts for rookies, which is great. The Giants were able to get David Wilson signed quickly, and he has the chance to be a flex option this season for the Giants. One of the big knocks on Wilson is his fumbling problem he had at Virginia Tech. But remember, Tom Coughlin helped Tiki Barber save his career by teaching him how to hold on to the football, so I look for this problem to be corrected for Wilson. I really like this move for the Giants, and having him already in the mix makes it better.
