In this week’s Social (Fantasy) Network, we want to know how you’re dealing with your injury-riddled roster.
In today’s Three and Out: Gronk’s back … finally! Jake Locker could be back for Week 7 and Percy Harvin might return in Week 8.
Keenum gets Week 7 start: Well, the Matt Schaub era seems like it’s coming to an end, which means its time for me to go QB shopping. Case Keenum finally gets his first taste of NFL action after playing college ball in as pass-happy of an offense as you’ll find. The good news is he can make all the throws that will be asked of him since he probably attempted all of them under Kevin Sumlin. The bad news? His first start comes against the Chiefs on the road. No big deal … only the most intimidating and productive defense in the league. Go get’em, kid! This would be like finding out that your son’s first little league at-bat will […]
In today’s Three and Out: The Giants are auditioning running backs; Percy Harvin could be back soon while Cecil Shorts could be back even sooner.
Can we trust Newton? Remember when Cam Newton burst onto the scene in 2011 and topped 400 passing yards in each of his first two starts as a rookie? “Wow, let the good times roll!” thought his owners. Then he went on to post either mediocre or disappointing weeks until … well, pretty much now. He threw for 308 yards and no TDs against the Cardinals a couple weeks ago, then threw for 242 yards and three TDs yesterday. Hmm. We’ve seen these outbursts from Cam in the past, but is it finally time to start him on a weekly basis? A lot depends on what you’re expecting from him on a weekly basis, but if you’re going by history, the […]
» That big game by Larry Fitzgerald certainly came out of nowhere. But let’s not overlook that 13.50 of his 16.10 points came on one play. Hard to count on that type of thing happening every week. Even less likely it happens against Seattle next Thursday night. » There are two legitimate fantasy options in the 49ers offense – Frank Gore and Vernon Davis. Everything else is a crapshoot. Good luck next week against the Titans. » Jimmy Graham getting shut out is going to hurt a ton of fantasy owners this week. Graham leaving the game with an injury could hurt even more. The good news is the Saints have a bye next week for their star TE to get healthy. » It […]
In the Social (Fantasy) Network this week, we ask who you would draft if you could do it all over again.
In today’s Three and Out: Rob Gronkowski’s 2013 debut could be delayed yet again; Percy Harvin’s return could be coming soon.
Megatron practices again: Good news for the Lions offense and, well, probably their entire organization as a whole. For the first time since sitting out Week 5, Calvin Johnson returned to the practice field Thursday. He’s likely to be a game-time decision as the Lions take a short trip to visit Cleveland. We all saw how lethargic Detroit’s offense looked without him. The good news is the Browns play an early game this week, so it’s not like you’ll have to wait around until a late afternoon game and then find out you got hosed. The bad news? Browns DB Joe Haden has shown a pretty good knack for covering the best WR on the opponent’s roster and shutting him down. Plus, […]
TE Daniels will miss significant time: Just when Texans fans thought the news couldn’t get much worse, it’s now being reported that Owen Daniels will be placed on the IR with designation to return after six weeks. He’ll officially miss 4-6 weeks, but per league rules, the earliest he can return would be Week 14. The official diagnosis on Daniels is a non-displaced fibula fracture — ouch — that happened during Sunday’s blowout loss in San Francisco. This is a huge blow to the Texans offense — not because Daniels was posting monster stats this season (40 catches, 252 yards, 3 TDs) — but with Matt Schaub really struggling to find some consistency, having longtime teammate and friend Daniels as an […]

In today’s Three and Out: Julio Jones might be finished for the year; Rob Gronkowski is expected back while Owen Daniels is down for a few weeks.
How many of you headed into Monday night even thought of benching Matt Ryan for Geno Smith?
Fins defense still struggling: How fortunate are the Dolphins to have a 3-2 record heading into their bye? Extremely. Their record belies what is really happening on the gridiron. Believe it or not, Miami has been outgained in yardage in all five games this season, and that isn’t the best recipe for long-term success. It has caught up with them the last two weeks — first, Drew Brees shredded their secondary last Monday night, then Baltimore, which had struggled to run the ball often this season, outgained Miami 133-22 in Week 5. Miami’s offensive line was manhandled badly in the second half against the Ravens, as Ryan Tannehill seemed to face pressure on every snap. What’s the point of all […]
» For all of the attention focused on Peyton Manning, let’s not overlook Knowshon Moreno who rushed for 93 yards and a TD while adding another 57 receiving yards. He’s taking control of the No. 1 spot in the Broncos backfield. » He might frustrate Dallas Cowboys fans, but a game like today shows why Tony Romo remains a quality fantasy option. » Chris Johnson scored a long touchdown, but there was little that he did today to excite fantasy owners. He might be a bench option next week with the Titans travelling to Seattle. » Nick Foles played well today, but don’t get too excited. That was against the Giants. If he starts next week, it will be against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. » […]
