You can’t sit Vikings WR Percy Harvin, which is enough to frustrate fantasy owners.
Vikings RB Adrian Peterson told reporters this week that he would like 40 to 50 carries per game (via the Star Tribune). And you know what, he might need to reach that total for the Vikings to win.
Vincent Jackson could be back sooner than later for fantasy owners … if the Chargers deal him in the next few days.
The time has come. And Brett Favre will be sitting on my bench.

No Sidney Rice. Teams taking liberties with his health. And now Brett Favre has fumbled and is seen shaking his hand. The overreaction here is that Favre is regretting coming back and he is going going to be the player that he was last year.
Many have wondered if Brett Favre would have returned this season had he known that his go-to receiver would need surgery. Favre faced that question on Wednesday.
The timing of the decision by Sidney Rice to undergo surgery on his ailing hip raised eyebrows for some, brought about conspiracy theories for others. The exact nature of Rice’s injury still hasn’t been revealed, but the fact remains he’s likely to miss at least eight weeks of the season after having surgery on Monday night.
