Fantasy Football Report: Week 2

Two down, fifteen to go. Not quite as long a marathon as baseball but you get the idea. I find that keeping up with the rest of my leagues is becoming quite the task. I really need to be sitting at my computer and be ready to add any player at any time. It’s a good thing I succeeded last Sunday and snagged Darren Sproles. But more on that later.

LaDainian Tomlinson Has Sprained Big Toe

The king of fantasy football has been diagnosed with a sprained big toe but he still plans to be a bigger factor in week 3. LT has yet to score a TD this season and only has 123 rush yds in the first two games.

Larry Johnson Unhappy and Not a Factor in Kansas City Offense

Chiefs RB Larry Johnson has expressed his unhappiness with not being on the field more in KC’s loss on Sunday. Johnson isn’t playing on passing downs and only carried the ball 12 times for 22 yds.

Damon Huard Leaves Game, KC QB Situation in Shambles

Kansas City QB Damon Huard suffered minor head trauma and sat out the last 3 quarters of KC’s loss to the Raiders. Tyler Thigpen came in and finished the game. Head Coach Herman Edwards has not named a starter for Week 3.

Week 1 Top Performers

Jay Cutler (QB), Denver Broncos: Cutler threw all over San Diego’s defense for 350 yds and 4 TD. He was aided by the return of WR Brandon Marshall.

Week 3 Outlook: The Broncos face New Orleans who are giving up over 400 yds per game to opposing offenses which includes over 250 yds per game to QB’s.

Brandon Marshall (WR), Denver Broncos: Marshall set a Broncos franchise record with 18 catches in his first game after his suspension. He had 166 yds and a TD.

Week 3 Outlook: Marshall’s Week 3 looks very promising against a poor New Orleans defense that allowed Jason Campbell to throw for 321 yds and a TD in Week 2.

Darren McFadden (RB), Oakland Raiders: The rookie is trying to be this season’s Adrian Peterson with 164 rushing yds and a TD.

Week 3 Outlook: The injury to Justin Fargas will ensure more carries but the Raiders face a stingy Buffalo defense that has only allowed 91.5 rushing yds per game.

Week 2 Duds

Chad Pennington (QB), Miami Dolphins: After a good Week 1 (251 yds, 2 TD, 1 INT), Pennington failed to unload on a suspect Arizona defense by throwing for only 112 yds and no TD’s.

Week 3 Outlook: Pennington faces New England who have been excellent this season at stopping the pass by giving up only 167 pass yds per game.

Braylon Edwards (WR), Cleveland Browns: Edwards has yet to find a rhythm this season and he accumulated only 32 yds against the Steelers.

Week 3 Outlook: The Browns face the Ravens, who had their Week 2 game postponed. The Ravens will be fresher than ever and in their only game this season shut down Carson Palmer who threw for only 99 yds.

Michael Turner (RB), Atlanta Falcons: After his amazing Week 1 performance (220 yds, 2 TD), Turner couldn’t run anywhere against the Bucs by rushing for 42 yds on 14 carries.

Week 3 Outlook: Turner could be back to Week 1 form as the Falcons face the Chiefs. The Chiefs gave up 300 rushing yds to the Raiders in Week 3. Big things should be expected from Turner.

Unexpected Stars

Darren Sproles (RB), San Diego Chargers: In LT’s absence, Sproles lit the field up with 53 rush yds, 73 receiving yds and 2 TD’s (kick return and receiving).

Week 3 Outlook: It is unknown how many snaps LT will take so Sproles’ role is still up in the air. But, last week’s game should increase his workload. However, San Diego’s opponents in Week 3 are the Jets, who are only allowing 76.5 rush yds per game.

Isaac Bruce (WR), San Francisco 49ers: Bruce hauled in 4 catches for an amazing 153 yds in the 49ers win over Seattle.

Week 3 Outlook: Bruce averaged 38.3 yards per catch so don’t expect that to happen again. The matchup is favorable as the 49ers face Detroit who is surrendering over 460 total yds per game to opposing offenses.

Julius Jones (RB), Seattle Seahawks: Jones got the Seattle running game off the ground with 127 yds and a TD.

Week 3 Outlook: The floodgates could open as Seattle faces St. Louis who is giving up an NFL worst 481.5 total yds per game including an astounding 154 rush yds per game.

Sports of Boston Football League

  • I lost again, this time to SoB’s KC. KC lead the league in points with 169.94. He rode Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall to the promise land. Philip Rivers and Kurt Warner couldn’t help me enough because T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Chad Johnson aren’t helping me at all.
  • Speaking of KC, he sits in first place with a 2-0 record and 266.72 total points for the season.
  • I have the 5th most points in the league at 211.28 and I am 0-2. What a load of crap.
  • A total B.S. trade actually went through when Dev traded Brodie Coyle (yes, the injured, not-playing Coyle) and a useless WR in Bernard Berrian to SoB’s Geoff for Lee Evans. Yeah, two pieces of crap for Buffalo’s #1 WR. I am the only one who seemed to be outraged by this trade and I even vetoed. Does anybody else in the league understand why this was a terrible and unfair trade? Is anybody paying attention or giving a crap?
  • Recent pickups include: Sammy Morris, Anthony Fasano, Tampa Bay D, Justin Gage, Brandon Jackson, Tyler Thigpen, Darren Sproles, and David Patten.

  4. At least you got Sproles. Watch out this weekend, looks like it may be a game time decision for LT to play.
