Randall Cobb wakes up early to talk about how the Packers will make there way in the NFC North.

Well, the hype surrounding Colts QB Andrew Luck seems to be real. He had one stellar game (against the Vikings), two steady games, and probably the most impressive thing is that offensive coordinator Bruce Arians doesn’t treat him like a rookie. One interesting thing that’s come up this week as I’ve been shuttling back and forth between Indy and Green Bay is that Luck is starting to get compared to the dude he’s facing this week. The thought is that Luck (in a few years) = Aaron Rodgers. That’s what the Colts hope. “Very similar,” interim coach Bruce Arians said when asked to compare Rodgers and Luck. “Aaron’s very mobile, very accurate, got good velocity. Obviously he can handle a […]

This was the kind of week where why wouldn’t Chris Johnson have his best game of the season against the Houston Texans. And congratulations to the 65 percent of you who still started Johnson this week, kudos to you.

The term “Monday Nightmare” might take a different connotation after the controversial ending to the “Monday Night Football” game. But let’s deal with the fantasy impact of what happened on Monday night.

Week 3 is nearly in the books, how are you feeling? We still have a great Monday night game left, but let’s look back at the wek that was.

So let me see if I have this straight, Mike Shanahan said Alfred Morris was going to start for his team and then he went out and had the most carries of the weekend? Surprisingly, that’s not the biggest Washington Redskins’ story of the weekend.

While his performance on the field has at times left something to be desired, Tony Romo’s numbers show that he is actually an elite fantasy football quarterback.

First up on Revis Island 2012 edition is Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson, Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
In two games last season, Johnson averaged 79.5 yards against the New York Jets’ four-time Pro Bowl cornerback. But against Darrelle Revis, 80 yards sometimes feels like 200.

Maurice Jones-Drew stuck up for running backs, saying that they are still a dominant fantasy commodity. But, as Marcas Grant writes, things aren’t what they used to be with fantasy RB values.

Everyone is worried about how much the Green Bay Packers will be able to run the ball this season, except those people in charge of the offense.
Asked about improving the Packers run game on “NFL Total Access” earlier this month, Aaron Rodgers responded, “Do we need to?”

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning caused a stir prior to last season when he told the world he was an elite quarterback. Eli, of course, proved his doubters wrong when he was selected as MVP of Super Bowl XLVI — the second of his NFL career.

Contracts for NFL quarterbacks do not exist in a vacuum. So, when Saints QB Drew Brees earned a new deal, my mind immediately turned to a colleague. When will Packers QB Aaron Rodgers get similarly paid? “That stuff takes care of itself,” Rodgers told me yesterday. “I still have a few years left on my deal, and we’ll talk about that when we get there.” Perhaps. Or earlier. We’ll see. There are a lot of issues, and I tried to hit on many of them here. But Rodgers didn’t take a wait-and-see approach when discussing Brees’ deal. “You got to say he’s a fortunate man,” Rodgers told NFL.com. “I don’t think he’s complaining right now.” No, I’d say not. One other […]
