Philadelphia Eagles v New York Giants

We are already a quarter of the way done with the fantasy football season, and it’s amazing how fast the season goes. Players like Steve Slaton and Matt Forte finally broke lose and had big games for fantasy football owners.

At one point, I thought Slaton would end up being a bust as he was benched by his coach Gary Kubiak. Fortunately, Slaton was given another opportunity and had two big touchdowns.

This week I will be interested to see how Kurt Warner and the Cardinals play against the Texans. In their last contest against the Colts, Warner did not look good and the offense didn’t look sharp.

Hopefully, Arizona will come out and start playing like the team, we saw a season ago.

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 40 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

Eli Manning vs Raiders: We will have to find out if Eli Manning will play this week after he re-injured plantar fascia. Right now, if you have other options at quarterback you might want to bench Manning this week.

The Giants play the Raiders at home, and they should make easy work of them in this one. Look for New York to lean on their running game to get an easy win.

Correll Buckhaulter vs Patriots: If you have Knowshon Moreno it is time to make him a start this week. Correll Buckhaulter should be out for a week or two with a high ankle sprain. Look for Moreno to get the bulk of the work this week against the Patriots.

Darren McFadden @ Giants: Darren McFadden will be out the next 2-4 weeks with an injury. This week the Raiders play the Giants, and I really can’t recommend you start anyone from Oakland.

Willie Parker @ Lions: Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin expects Willie Parker to miss more time this week in practice. Parker has a turf toe injury and didn’t practice or play a week ago.

Look for Rashard Mendenhall to get the bulk of work, even if Parker does suit up for the game.

Roy E. Williams vs Chiefs: Unfortunately, for you fantasy football owners that still have Roy Williams on your team, he may not play this week. Williams is suffering from three damaged ribs from last week’s game.

This is one of Williams golden opportunities to shine for fantasy owners, so hopefully he can play this week.
