Are you kidding with these interceptions, Eli? Giants QB Eli Manning tossed an interception with just under three minutes left in a blowout — his third of the game. Hopefully that did not keep you from winning or losing this week. But these interceptions keep Manning from being an elite fantasy quarterback. Manning has done a great job of making fantasy stars of WRs Hakeem Nicks and Steve Smith. And even WR Mario Manningham has some value. But those interceptions keep Manning from making that leap. Manning had four touchdown passes and more than 300 passing yards, but he still had less than 25 points in NFL.com standard leagues. What’s worse — and I don’t know if this is my […]

It was a rough day on the injury front for the Eagles, who lost Michael Vick, Asante Samuel and WR Riley Cooper.
The Panthers lost star WR Steve Smith to an ankle injury Sunday against the Saints, and his return is questionable.
Jimmy Claussen is killing the value of Steve Smith this week.

Texans WR Andre Johnson is listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but do you think that Johnson is going to sit out a huge matchup against the Cowboys? The Texans are playing in their third Super Bowl in three weeks, and there is no way the team is going on without its best player.
Chargers RB Ryan Mathews fumbled, hurt his ankle and then watched Mike Tolbert score two touchdowns — what should have been his touchdowns. Already the anxiety is becoming too much.
What could have been horrible news for the Panthers looks like nothing more than a scare at this point.
While Eli Manning will stay off the practice field, Steve Smith is back on it.

A year ago at this time, the only thing you heard about the New York Giants was that they had no wide receivers. Now it’s the least of the worries for the Giants.
It might be too early to count out Dwayne Jarrett in the competition for the Panthers’ No. 2 receiver spot.
