New England Patriots v Denver Broncos

Things are starting to take shape in different divisions around the NFL football world. Teams like the Broncos and Bengals are not only division leaders but are strong contenders for the playoffs.

If you have players on either of these teams their fantasy football value has taken a dramatic increase since the summer.

On another note, we are in the third week of the bye week stretch and the Colts, 49ers, Dolphins and Cowboys are all off.

This week we have our weekly section on wounded warriors, as well as our top rankings for top position players. We have the top 16 ranked QB, TE, K and D/ST ranked. We also have the top 30 RB’s and top 35 WR’s as well.

Every week we will start off with our wounded warrior’s section. These are the key players that are on the injury report that you need to pay attention too before games begin.

Wounded Warriors

Matthew Stafford @ Packers: Look for Matthew Stafford to ride the pine again this week as he has a bad knee. Although the Lions maintained that Stafford would be a game time decision last week, he didn’t even warm up before the game.

Next week the Lions have their bye week and this would give Stafford almost a month to rest the knee. Daunte Culpepper will start, even if the Lions say Stafford is a “game time decision” again.

Willie Parker vs Browns: The Steelers veteran running back Willie Parker has not practiced for almost three weeks now. In spite of this lay off head coach Mike Tomlin believes Parker will be ready for full practice on Wednesday.

Parker kills the Browns and I’m sure he would love to be on the field this weekend. Even if he is I believe you will still see Rashard Mendenhall get more touches by the end of the game.

Calvin Johnson @ Packers: The Lions prized receiver Calvin Johnson went down early in the game with a knee injury. The team believes the injury is not serious, but I believe he is highly doubtful for this week’s game.

Much like Stafford the Lions would be wise to sit Johnson out this week and give him the bye week next week to get healthy.

Jericho Cotchery vs Bills: The Jets No.2 receiver Jericho Cotchery admitted he probably re-aggravated his hamstring by playing in the Monday night game. He also added that he needs to be smart and may have to miss this week’s game.

Look for Mark Sanchez to throw to Braylon Edwards and Dustin Keller most of the time next week.

Anthony Gonzalez – Bye Week: The Colts GM Bill Polian admitted that Anthony Gonzalez is not ready to start practicing again. When asked if he would be able to play week seven, Polian said he would expect Gonzalez to have a few bumps in the road to recovery.

Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie will continue to play in their roles for awhile. Since they are playing so well the Colts will let Gonzalez get to full strength before he comes back.
