Benson vultures into the end zone

What is one of the greatest plays in fantasy football? Defensive pass interference in the end zone — especially when you have the running back who is going to vulture the touchdown, which is what Cedric Benson just did.

Noteworthy nuggets from Week 2

With Week 2 almost in the books, here’s a look at a few key statistics and notable numbers from Sunday’s action from George Li on the NFL Network research desk.

Lions RB Best is going to be just fine

One of the themes this morning was what to do about Lions RB Jahvid Best. The Lions offense is certainly less dynamic without QB Matthew Stafford. But what about Best?

Lions coach Schwartz has confidence in Hill

Lions coach Jim Schwartz said that he has complete confidence in backup QB Shaun Hill. Yeah, wish I could join you out on that ledge there Schwartz.

Overreaction Theater: McFadden is a superstar

Here is the thing that gets overlooked in a game like the Titans blowout of the Raiders. RB Darren McFadden actually had a good game. Seriously. Well, at least fantasy wise.

Best is top rookie in early going

Lions RB Jahvid Best has scored a pair of first-half touchdowns making him the first Lions player to score two rushing touchdowns in his first game since Billy Sims did it against the Los Angeles Rams in 1980.

Best rolling early for Lions

Anybody who followed my live chat this morning knows that I am bullish on the Lions. In fact, I even said that Matthew Stafford would have more fantasy points than Jay Cutler today. As well as starting Stafford over Brett Favre in my fantasy league.

Lions players on brink of being fantasy superstars

Are the Lions on the verge of being a super team? Seems kind of strange to say. Like saying Paris Hilton is on the verge of being a responsible adult.

If you are not high on Jahvid Best by now, you may have already missed the boat.

Moreno back at practice, but there are better options

Broncos RB Knowshon Moreno pronounced himself 80 percent ready for the upcoming season, leaving fantasy enthusiasts to scratch their heads and say, “What do we do now?”

Roundup: A look back at Saturday night

It’s the morning after … nine games were on the NFL preseason slate on Saturday night, so let’s take a bullet-point look on thoughts and observations from around the league.

Best already putting on show against Browns

The Lions offense continues to be impressive, and RB Jahvid Best continues to show that we should not be so quick to label Ryan Mathews as the top rookie running back.

Loving the Lions offensive line right now

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.

Saturday night’s all right for preseason football
