When it comes to the fantasy realm, I am all about sportsmanship and giving it your all right up to the end. So if you are one of the unfortunate owners who will not be making the fantasy football playoffs then please, do not stop playing. I can’t stand owners who don’t pay attention or who will just purposely dump their teams into free agency or through a lopsided trade. Play to the end. Odds are you can be a deciding factor in another team’s future. Play for pride dammit!
Oakland QB JaMarcus Russel has been nursing an ankle injury over the past two weeks. It made him miss Week 10 against Carolina and it took him out of the Week 11 game against Miami. Keep an eye on it if you play Russell every week. Although, I don’t know why you would.
KFFL is reporting that New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is more than likely to sit out Sunday against the Cardinals. Jacobs said he could play if he wanted to to but, the team probably won’t rush him back.
Dallas QB Tony Romo, who has missed three games with a broken pinkie, was back on the field on Sunday. He was wearing a splint on his finger and had an uneventful game with 198 yds, a TD, and 2 INT.
Matt Cassel (QB), New England Patriots: With no ground game, Cassell carried the offense on his back with 400 yds and 3 TD. He threw in 62 rush yds for good measure.
Justin Gage (WR), Tennessee Titans: Gage had more yds on Sunday (147) than he had in his three previous games combined. He also had 2 TD.
Joseph Addai (RB), Indianapolis Colts: Addai got his first 100-yd game of the season when he ran for 105 yds and a TD. He added a receiving TD to his day too.
Philip Rivers (QB), San Diego Chargers: it was not the best day for Rivers, who threw for 159 yds and 2 INT.
Andre Johnson (WR), Houston Texans: Johnson had a tough time against the Colts with just 4 catches for 55 yds.
Clinton Portis (RB), Washington Redskins: After resting a knee injury, Portis carried 15 times for only 68 yds and zero TD.
