Fantasy Football Report: Week 1

Donovan McNabb

Oh it feels so good to be back. The start of the NFL season also means the start of the “Fantasy Football Report”. Once again we will be bringing you a recap of some of the best players from the previous week as well as those who did not live up to expectations. Are you ready for some fantasy football? Hell yeah you are!

Donovan McNabb Injures Rib

Eagles QB Donovan McNabb left Sunday’s game against Carolina after suffering a cracked rib during his TD run in the third quarter. It looks more than likely that McNabb won’t play Sunday and Philadelphia signed veteran QB Jeff Garcia just in case.

Anthony Gonzalez Collapses During Game

Everyone’s favorite sleeper, Colts’ WR Anthony Gonzalez, fell to the ground during a running play against Jacksonville. Going untouched at the line, Gonzalez reportedly sprained a ligament in his knee and could miss up to six weeks.

Jake Delhomme Benched

After committing five turnovers (4 INT, 1 fumble), Panthers’ QB Jake Delhomme was benched against the Eagles. No need to worry for owners. Delhomme is still the starter this Sunday (but do you really want to activate him?).

Week 1 Top Performers

Adrian Peterson (RB), Minnesota Vikings

Just another day at the office for Fantasy’s #1 back as he rushed for 180 yds and scored three TD’s including what is already the best run of the season.

Week 2 Outlook

AP will have another huge game when the Vikings visit the Detroit Lions who were ripped a new one by the Saints’ on Sunday.

Drew Brees (QB), New Orleans Saints

Speaking of the Saints, Brees set a career-high with six passing TD’s along with 358 yds.

Week 2 Outlook

Drew Brees will get more of a challenge against the Eagles. Philadelphia had five INT’s in Week 1 and Brees has just five TD’s in three career games against the Eagles.

Reggie Wayne (WR), Indianapolis Colts

With no Anthony Gonzalez, Reggie Wayne became the primary target. His 162 yds led all receivers and he also had a TD.

Week 2 Outlook

Wayne has never had a TD in his career against the Dolphins. However, seeing as Wayne is the only WR left standing in Indy, expect another solid game.

Week 1 Duds

Jay Cutler (QB), Chicago Bears

This was not the debut that everyone was hoping for as Cutler threw four picks in the loss to Green Bay.

Week 2 Outlook

You’d think it could only get better from here, but Chicago now has to host the Steelers defense. At least Cutler doesn’t have to worry about Troy Polamalu ruining his day.

Andre Johnson (WR), Houston Texans

The juggernaut known as the Texans’ offense was completely shut down by Rex Ryan’s Jets and Johnson accumulated just 35 receiving yds.

Week 2 Outlook

Yikes, Johnson and the Texans now have to travel to Tennessee to face the Titans. Then again, Ben Roethlisberger threw for over 360 yds against the Titans in Week 1, so there is hope.

Eddie Royal (WR), Denver Broncos

Royal was thought to be a huge part of Josh McDaniels’ offense, but instead he only accounted for 18 receiving yds.

Week 2 Outlook

The Broncos get to face the lowly Cleveland Browns, so hopefully this is a great bounce-back opportunity for Royal.

Unexpected Stars

Julius Jones (RB), Seattle Seahawks

Jones only had two 100+ rush yd games all of last season, but he made his mark early this season against the Rams with 117 yds and a TD.

Week 2 Outlook

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. After all, he was facing St. Louis. The Seahawks will face the 49ers in Week 2 and the 49ers did a good job of keeping the Cardinals in check during Week 1 when they allowed just 16 points.

Carnell Williams (RB), Tampa Bay Buccaneers

On just 13 carries, Williams rushed for 97 yds and a TD.

Week 2 Outlook

Williams will need more than 13 carries to equal his Week 1 production as the Bucs face the Bills’ defense that surrendered only 73 rush yds against the Patriots on Monday.

Louis Murphy (WR), Oakland Raiders

The rookie had a great debut with 87 yds and a TD.

Week 2 Outlook

Don’t be afraid of Oakland WR’s in Week 2 because they get to run wild all over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs allowed over 300 yds passing and three passing TD’s to the Ravens in Week 1.
