Week 2 Re-cap

What we learned - Week 2
We learned this week that the first Monday night game for the Eagles was a fluke and the first game for San Fran may have been too, but we are not discounting that the Rams may stink. We are almost 100% sure Dante Culpepper would be considered a bust after 2 games. Randy was needed afterall. Start the Tice watch. We learned that Oakland can play close to good teams, just not beat them. We learned that the Jaguars are pretty good on defense and so are the Colts. We learned that there may be trouble in San Diego - restart the Marty watch? We learned that the NFL totally hosed the Saints by giving them a home game against the Giants in New York...WTF! Try a neutral site! We realized that the Patriots are mortal and Carolina may be the contender everyone once thought. We learned that Michael Vick still is learning the West Coast Offense. We sadly learned that Green Bay is in for a long season. We learned that Donavin Darius is out forthe season - and the Jags D looked so good. I learned that it is not so good to have the second highest points in Fantasy when you play the guy with the highest points.


Pittsburgh is looking pretty good, the Titans were able to snub Jamal Lewis this week - how? Denver is still having issues on both sides of the ball. Seattle plays better at home. Joey Harrington is not the answer in Detroit. He is also killing Kevin Jones. Dallas looked so good versus San Diego and then lost to the Redskins in the last 4 minutes of the game - Parcells will have a conditioning coach out today. Houston seeems to have taken a step back. The Bills have no passing game.


Ron Dayne : Denver

We know, Mike Shanhan has reiterated that Mike Andersen is the starter. Forget that! All you need to know about Ron Dayne is that with 3 minutes left in a tie game the Broncos gave the ball to Dayne for 7 of their last 9 plays. Dayne responded and put the Broncos in position to win the game. Oh, and by the way did we mention that Mike Andersen fumbled. Do I need to say any more? PICK DAYNE UP IMMEADIATELY!

Tony Gonzalez : Kansas City

Chiefs OT Willie Roaf missed Sunday’s matchup with the Oakland Raiders and the fantasy implicatons were widespread. Not only did the running game struggle (against a weak Oakland run defense) but T. Gonzalez was used almost exclusively as a blocker. Until Roaf recovers from his hamstring strain, expect low production from Gonzalez and a sluggish running game from the Chiefs. As the Roaf injury is not expected to be long term, if you can trade Gonzalez in a blockbuster; do so…you never know when Roaf will go down again.

Trent Green : Kansas City

Stop worrying about Trent Green. Yes, we know he has yet top throw a TD pass, but he did the same thing last year when he struggled early and then rebounded to be the second best QB the final half of the 2004 season. If you do not have T. Green see if you can steal him from your fellow owner as his value will never be lower.

Kevin Jones : Detroit

Considered a rising star, Jones has been a bust the first two weeks and there is no relief in sight. With upcoming games against Tampa Bay, Baltimore and Carolina, three stingy defenses, Jones fantasy drought will likely continue. If you have him, look for a replacement over the next month and then expect him to rebound with a nice second half of the season. For other owners, keep your eye on Jones and try trading for him after the Ravens game as his value should be at an all time low.

Carson Palmer : Cincinnati

Palmer has exceeded expectations so far this season and while he is a decent fantasy QB, we recommend trading him now. His value will never be greater. With two great games against Cleveland and Minnessota, Palmer faces a rigorous upcoming schedule and should see a decline in his numbers. You’ll thank us later.

Extra point: For those of you that still have Joey Harrington (Det)on your team, you should never play Fantasy Football again!
