Trends to consider for Week 3

In an effort to help you set the best lineup possible, NFL Network’s stats guru David Carabello and I have found 10 trends you might want to consider for Week 3.

WR Galloway out, QB Frerotte in

The St. Petersburg Times is reporting that Joey Galloway will miss this week’s battle in Chicago with a foot sprain.

The Times didn’t discuss Galloway’s long-term status, but fantasy owners need to make a move to replace him in the interim and prepare to be without him. The veteran has been inconsistent in recent seasons, but he’s still had 1,000-plus yards with 13 touchdowns in two seasons in Tampa Bay.

RBs Grant, McGahee both on injury report

Here are some of the top names listed on the injury report for Week 1:

Reggie Brown, WR, Philadelphia (Doubtful): Brown (hamstring) is likely out for Week 1, so Hank Baskett and rookie DeSean Jackson will see more targets. Jackson is a nice sleeper candidate against St. Louis.

Joey Galloway, WR, Tampa Bay (Questionable): Galloway (groin) was limited in Friday’s practice but is still expected to start in Week 1. He owns the New Orleans Saints, so be sure to check his status on Sunday morning.

Fall of the fantasy running back

When Sr. Associate Editor Andy Nesbitt told me he would pass on running backs in the first three rounds of his fantasy draft, I thought it was a perfect way to wrap up our draft coverage. This sort of strategy would have been laughed at in seasons past, but the fact that it worked shows how drastically the fantasy landscape has changed.

RBs Perry, Slaton have added value

All 32 NFL teams have cut their rosters down to 53 players, so it’s time to examine some of the moves that will have the greatest impact on fantasy football.

Cincinnati Bengals: The release of Rudi Johnson guarantees a starting role for Chris Perry, who now has value as a No. 3 fantasy back or flex starter. Based on his past proneness to injuries, however, it’s important to add Kenny Watson as a handcuff.

Marshall’s suspension decreased to one game

It’s a happy day for the Denver Broncos and fantasy football owners alike, as the NFL has decreased the suspension of Brandon Marshall to just one game.

Marshall was initially suspended three games for violating of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy, but it was dropped to one game after his appeal. He will also pay an additional fine of one game check in addition to missing the team’s regular-season opener against the Oakland Raiders.
