Bodog Fantasy - Week 3 - Rumors/Response
NFL Fantasy Football
September 18, 2007
The latest from around the NFL . . .
Anyone who owns Brady Quinn is going to have to
keep him stashed on their reserve list after Derek
Anderson guided the Browns to 51 points on the weekend.
Anderson seemed to be minutes away from losing his
starter's job to Quinn, but he exploded for 328 yards
and five touchdown passes in Cleveland's win over
Cincinnati. If for some reason you own Anderson AND
you had him in your lineup on Sunday, hats off to
you; he'll next take on the Raiders.
Speaking of Oakland, Josh McCown was pretty bad
for them in their loss to the Broncos (8-of-16 for
73 yards, three interceptions), but initial word
out of the Bay Area is that he'll start again this
At least he'll be up against a team that just allowed
45 points, but if Week 2's results don't turn the
Raiders to Daunte Culpepper, what will? That poor
QB play, though, has been great for LaMont Jordan,
who rushed for 159 yards versus Denver.
If you've been relying on the Saints to lead your
fantasy team you've probably been having a tough
time staying competitive so far this season.
Drew Brees went 26-of-44 for 260 yards against Tampa
Bay, with just one touchdown pass and one interception,
while Reggie Bush (27 yards) and Deuce McAllister
(49 yards) couldn't get much going on the ground.
Bush at least added 43 receiving yards in the loss,
but if the Saints aren't scoring he's not a top RB
Eli Manning's status as the Giants' starter wasn't
confirmed until shortly before kickoff, but you probably
didn't get hurt if you chose to bench him.
Although Manning apparently did make it through
the game without re-injuring his shoulder, he was
just 16-of-29 for 211 yards with one touchdown and
one interception in the 35-13 loss to the Packers.
A better play would've been Brett Favre, who threw
for 286 yards and three touchdowns.
Finally, if you have either Tarvaris Jackson or
Chester Taylor on your team it is probably time to
shove those Vikings onto your bench - or drop them
Jackson went 17-for-33 for 166 yards with four interceptions
in Minnesota's loss to Detroit, and he limped off
the field in overtime to boot. Taylor missed the
Vikings' Week 2 matchup, and Adrian Peterson further
solidified his hold on the RB job.
