I got a tweet from William B. on Monday night: “Why is the one day I bench Rivers, his best day of the season?” Because that’s fantasy football. And I should know, because I spent most of my time on Thursday’s edition of NFL Fantasy Live breaking up with Philip Rivers, ending our association for the season.
Apparently, that was the kick-start he needed to get things going.

Earnest Graham is finished for the year with a torn Achilles’ tendon, but with Tampa having a Week 8 bye, it should give LeGarrette Blount enough time to get healthy.

After his second concussion of the season, Jahvid Best is being advised to sit out the rest of the season leaving a hole in both the Lions and fantasy owners’ rosters.

With Julio Jones out of action this week, it seems unlikely that the Falcons will rely on just one receiver to take his place.

Now that the Monday Nightmare is over for some of you (others, understandably are rejoicing), it is time for a quick look at the fantasy news of the day to get your started on an alternative rankings Tuesday.

Another exciting week of games on Sunday – which means another interesting day of Monday tape study.

Whether it was starting Eric Decker or benching Ben Roethlisberger, the Fantasy Faux Pas blog is a place for fantasy owners to get a little catharsis over their weekend screw-ups.

One of the best matchups of the weekend has to be football’s version of the “Running of the Bulls,” a ground-and-pound contest between Texans RB Arian Foster and Raiders RB Darren McFadden.

One of the worst things that can happen to you in fantasy football is hope. That glimmer of hope that makes you believe that your team can pull off the impossible. And trailing my buddy Scotty J. by 51 points after his team (with Wes Welker and Beanie Wells) went nuts, I had resigned myself to the loss despite having LeGarrette Blount and Pierre Garcon going on Monday.

The Buffalo Bills’ upset at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals dropped them from the heady ranks of the top 5 in NFL.com’s latest Power Poll, but otherwise there wasn’t much change at the top, with Green Bay and New Orleans leading the way.

Yesterday we took a look at the surprising WRs who were targeted the most in Week 3, and also a glance at some surprising trends that brought us names like Andre Caldwell, Davone Bess and Dane Sanzenbacher (Jim Tressel is smiling somewhere). Today, it’s time to spotlight the RBs and take a look at the ‘touch leaders’ for Week 3.

LeGarrette Blount is still the starter in Tampa Bay, but talk of a platoon could put a dent in his value.

Fantasy owners looking for a breakout candidate at running back should look no further than Shonn Greene.
