Every week during the season, I will throw out some quick observations of the previous NFL week. With the invention of the DVR and Directv’s ”Quick Bits”, I am able to watch every snap of every game and give you a lightning “blitz” war “krieg” to bring to your fantasy league for domination. Bring on the games!

Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees had great nights.  The real story was who stepped up during that matchup.  Jordy Nelson had a good night with 6-77 yards and a TD.  Randall Cobb had a receiving TD in limited action and a huge kickoff return TD.  Robert Meachem had 5-70 yards with a TD and two drops.  Devery Henderson had 6-100 yards and a TD.  RB Sproles had 7-75 yards receiving and added a long punt return for a TD.  At least in the beginning, all three Saint running backs with hurt the others’ values.

The Baltimore defense showed that they are not getting old as they forced the Steelers into seven turnovers with most of them committed by Ben Roethlisberger.  Joe Flacco poised in the pocket and was only sacked once.  Ray Rice had almost 150 yards combined.  Rice also had a rushing TD which came in the red zone and a receiving TD. If the first game is any indication, Ed Dickson is the TE to own in Baltimore as he had 5 receptions for 59 yards and a TD.  Pittsburgh was out of synch for most of the game.  The o-line had issues up front and their defense looked old. Keep in mind this game was against one of the leagues best teams. To read the rest click here:

Fluid is the first word that comes to mind when you are thinking about a Shanahan running game situation.  Right now, newly minted Tim Hightower is running like crazy in the preseason for the Skins.  With their quarterbacks in flux, John Beck and Rex Grossman, “Papa” and “Sonny Boy” Shanahan will need to run the ball to slow down the other powerful offenses in the NFC East.  The one thing that has been consistent with the Shanahans, the ball carrier is less important than the o-line and the blocking system.  Let’s look at the skill set that Roy Helu, Jr. can bring to the Washington Redskins and your fantasy team.

Every week during the preseason and season, I will throw out some quick observations of the previous NFL week.  With the invention of the DVR and Directv’s “Quick Bits”, I am able to watch every snap of every game and give you a lightning “blitz” war “krieg” to bring to your fantasy league for domination.  Now, some of you may take issue to my “maybe” in the title of the article.  The truth is Hurricane “Irene” may cause me to be unable to watch the remaining games on satellite, but I will do my best to get Part 2 out.  And on with our show:

Washington’s Tim Hightower looks amazing and his value is going through the roof. Don’t buy him high.  If I already owned him, I would hold him for the first month and trade him to the highest bidder.  R-Rated aka Ray Rice looks awesome.  Lee Evans is working well with Joe Flacco and Torrey Smith is not ready for prime time just yet.  Smith is a dynasty stash wait and see guy now.

The Eagles may be held in check by their o-line this year.  Vick looked out of sorts.  The people who are saying get Vick in the first 5 picks in your draft need to look at his last two NFL games and last two preseason games.  Ronnie Brown is a decent handcuff, but McCoy is the #1 PPR weapon in Philly, especially after his 7 catches for 69 yards vs. the Browns.  Speaking of the Browns, other than Peyton Hillis, the rest of the team looked mediocre against the Eagles.  Colt McCoy and the rest of the passing offense looked out of sorts. Draft the Browns skill players for depth, not as starters.  For the rest of the article:

Well my friends, things just got downright interesting in Arizona.  The Cardinals spent their second round pick on Ryan Williams in this year’s draft.  Tim Hightower was traded to the Washington Redskins, which leaves Arizona with two starting options at running back ie: the afore-mentioned rookie Williams and the under achieving Chris “Beanie” Wells. Both are quite talented and, yet, both have their issues.  Neither back has demonstrated solid health, so let’s take a look at why fantasy owners should consider drafting Ryan Williams.
