Falcons RB Michael Turner is poised for a big season. Talking to various NFL Network talent, Turner is more focused this year and dedicated. And the Falcons are going to give him the ball plenty. And then, you add in the Falcons’ recent push to get him the ball in the air … I smell a big year for Turner.
St. Louis QB Sam Bradford is drawing some positive reviews after his performance against the Patriots on Thursday. And rightly so. But for purely fantasy purposes, it was another rookie who should have captured your attention.
The fantasy love affair with Donnie Avery started in Week 7 of the 2008 season. I picked up Avery as an injury replacement and was pleasantly surprised when he had 55 receiving yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys.
Monday Night Football commentator Jon Gruden had it right when he called the first half of the Colts and Packers game a quarterback clinic.
Patriots RB Laurence Maroney was one of the guys I was going to keep an eye on during the first half of the Patriots game with St. Louis, but that was kind of hard considering that he was not on the field.
The Greatest Show on Turf is back, ladies and gentlemen. St. Louis has a high-flying offense again.
The Packers showed just how serious they are taking the preseason by dialing up some long bombs from QB Aaron Rodgers.

Kurt Warner is not walking through that door. Warner made it abundantly clear on NFL Network on Wednesday, chatting with Rich Eisen and Trent Green.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley talked extensively about his running back situation during his press conference on Tuesday, specifically about Jamaal Charles.
NFL Senior Columnist Vic Carucci pointed out in his Tuesday Huddle that many would be clamoring for Kurt Warner — the Kurt Warner Machine if you will — to come out of retirement to save the Cardinals franchise. Or your fantasy team.
Before we get into the news about Sidney Rice‘s pending surgery, let’s review one of the most basic of fantasy commandments that I hold dear — do not have your fantasy draft until September. Or at least after the third preseason game.
The Lions have a sneaky number of potential sleepers, breakouts and dudes who will be better than you think this year. QB Matthew Stafford is a favorite of our editor Craig Ellenport. I am found of RB Jahvid Best and WR Calvin Johnson (but who isn’t). The key for this team? The offensive line.
