Raiders, Vikings make Week 12 QB decisions

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 […]

That Helps No One for Week 11: Matt McGloin

Matt McGloin started his first NFL game for the Oakland Raiders and quickly earned his first That Helps No One award. Read on to learn why.

Who’s dealing with injuries entering Week 11?

Sit Stevie: According to a report on the official Bills team site, coach Doug Marrone “(doesn’t) feel good” about Stevie Johnson’s chances of seeing the field in Week 11. Johnson picked up a groin injury last week against the Steelers, but he hasn’t been a consistent fantasy threat when he’s healthy. Stevie seems to have one good week every so often, then lets his owners down more often than not. If you had been banking on him starting this week, you may want to jump on the waiver wire and make other plans. Broken Law: Remember when going into the season, the consensus was BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovanni Bernard would split carries until a winner emerged? Bernard went on to […]

Monday Nightmare: Even Peyton Manning can’t help

Peyton Manning is probably the most automatic player in fantasy football right now. Probably. I should change that to just automatic. But here’s the thing, if you had him on Monday night, and let’s say you needed 28.86 points, you had to feel pretty good. And if you have Montee Ball to boot, there’s no way you could lose, right?

Robert Griffin III cleared to play … but will he?

In today’s Three and Out: Robert Griffin III has been cleared, but no word on whether he’ll start Week 1; the Raiders haven’t named a starter — but for a vastly different reason.
