Is Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson a better fantasy football option than Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III?

It’s week 13, and the Detroit Lions badly needed a win against the resurgent Indianapolis Colts to keep any hope of a trip to the playoffs alive. Let’s see if Megatron and co. brought their A-game.

It’s week 13 and the playoff picture is becoming clearer, as the Falcons, Patriots, Texans, and Broncos all clinched a playoff appearance. What isn’t becoming clearer is the quarterback situation in New York. Or how in the world Adrian Peterson healed from his ACL surgery so quickly and continues to ravage opposing defenses. I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get to the Unexpected (and expected) from week 13.

It’s time to take a look at all of the happenings in fantasy football this week, and that includes Adrian Peterson‘s amazing performance.

The Indianapolis Colts are looking to make a playoff push as they begin the second half of the season in Jacksonville on “Thursday Night Football.” Andrew Luck will make his primetime debut, four days after his rookie-record 433 yards passing in a comeback win over the Miami Dolphins. While the Colts’ passing proficiency has been remarkable, when you go inside the numbers the true key to their 5-3 start has been their ability to convert on third down. The Colts are a league-best 42.1 percent converting on third downs of six yards or more. Their talented group of receivers, led by veteran Reggie Wayne, has been able to shred zone coverages and Luck has made opposing defenses pay with his […]

I have no idea what any of that means, but it’s just awesome to look at. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the weird, wild and wacky stuff from Week 8.

Each week, we’ll take a look at how Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III stack up against the 2011 breakout performance of Cam Newton.* ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck threw for 280 yards and 2 interceptions in the Colts loss to the New York Jets. The Colts offense was held to three field goals and only converted 3 of 11 on third down. The Jets beat the Colts, 35-9. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Robert Griffin III vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– Robert Griffin III had a monster performance on the ground and in the air against the Minnesota Vikings.

Cam Newton is an undroppable in most fantasy leagues, and it’s probably a good thing, too, considering most impetuous fantasy enthusiasts would at least consider dropping him after another disappointing game in Week 5. Like you’re sitting around, drinking a few beers, watching Dexter after the Sunday night game and thinking, “(expletive) it, I’m done with this guy.”

The Colts said all week they wouldn’t try to “play for” coach Chuck Pagano, who is battling leukemia in a nearby hospital. They didn’t want their emotions to overwhelm them. Yet following a stirring, 30-27 win over the Packers that Pagano no doubt cheered from his hospital bed, they could admit the obvious. They wanted to win for him like crazy. Shoot, WR Reggie Wayne even fantasized earlier in the week about having a great game, then having the game ball delivered to Pagano. Well, that’s exactly what happened. In the end, in the bowels of Lucas Oil Stadium, there was owner Jim Irsay clutching the football, surrounded by security, racing to the hospital to award it to Pagano. It […]

The NFC North is a two-team race, just as we all figured. What we didn’t figure was it would be the Chicago Bears (well, we kinda figured them) and the Minnesota Vikings (nobody saw it coming). The Bears and Vikings won in a pair of laughers, but the Packers?

Each week, we’ll take a look at how Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III stack up against the 2011 breakout performance of Cam Newton. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck vs. Cam Newton ————————————————————————————————————————————– Andrew Luck led his team to a 30-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers. After a slow offensive start in the first half, the Colts scored 19 straight points and capped off their comeback with a 4-yard Reggie Wayne touchdown to take the lead. The rookie QB also rushed for 24 yards and earned his first rushing touchdown of the season. Three may be Luck’s number. This is his third consecutive two touchdown game and his third 300-plus passing yard game. The Colts are now at .500 with a 2-2 record. […]

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 […]

Has the injury to Washington Redskins running back Roy Helu cemented Alfred Morris’ status atop the depth chart?
