Stay put, Matt: When the Raiders said they weren’t committed to Terrelle Pryor, they weren’t kidding. Pryor has been dealing with knee issues, but he’s practicing again as of today … except it’s with the second unit. Matt McGloin has been named Oakland’s starter against Tennessee. The undrafted rookie ambushed the Texans by throwing three scores and no picks. I’ve said this before and will say it again: be extremely cautious about buying in on QBs who have great initial success (ie beginner’s luck). Take Case Keenum as one of many examples — another guy who hit the ground running, set off a fantasy waiver wire stampede, then tapered off as soon as defensive coordinators had some film they could […]

NEW YORK — Did you have Manti Te’o being drafted before Geno Smith? Because that’s exactly what happened on Friday night. Let’s take a look at the expected (and unexpected) from Friday night. ————————————————————————————————————————————– Is it really a quarterback league? ————————————————————————————————————————————– One quarterback in round one (not the guy you expected) and then Geno Smith stopped the skid in round two when he was selected by the Jets. Smith avoided controversy earlier in the day when he came to his senses and chose to stay in New York. Could you imagine the controversy Geno would have caused if he had left New York, only to have to return because he was drafted by the Jets? Why, that would be worse […]

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.”
