Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski improved to 2-0 after securing a first-round knockout of Richard Bryant on March 12. And Zbikowski has signed up for two more fights, too.

Running back by committees are the scourge of fantasy football, but the Giants’ backfield committee is actually working out early on Sunday.

Giants QB Eli Manning has always lived in his brother’s shadow, but always seems to outperform Peyton. Now Eli gets a chance to do it again.
Every situation is a passing situation to the Manning brothers. And as fantasy enthusiasts, you have to appreciate that.
Giants RB Brandon Jacobs looked destined for the fantasy wood pile after disappearing in Week 2 and Week 3, but the bruising back has become a fantasy vulture after scoring his second touchdown of the game.
