Week 3 Flex Play Rankings

Photo By: Kevin Hoffman / US PRESSWIRE The Chiefs are off to a horrible start but Jamaal Charles light load against the Bills was puzzling. On Monday we found out that Charles said his reconstructed knee felt sore, so the Chiefs coaching staff wisely held him out of much action in the second half. Charles is likely to go against the Saints this week, but keep an eye on his practice workload or lack there of ...

Week 3 Team Defense Rankings

Photo By: Kyle Terada / US PRESSWIRE What looked like a few challenging matchups on paper, didn't seem to phase the 49ers, defeating the Packers and Lions. Now San Francisco heads back on the road to take on a floundering Vikings team. Christian Ponder will struggle and we can only hope he's able to make it through the game healthy. Perhaps Minnesota would be wise to take a chapter from the Lions last week ...

Week 3 K Rankings

Photo By: Evan Habeeb / US PRESSWIRE If you don't know the name Justin Tucker, you will soon. Tucker beat-out Billy Cundiff to start for the Ravens and looked good against the Bengals flashing a strong leg and accuracy. Then his week two performance made him a top five fantasy kicker as he went off for three field goals from distances of 56, 51 and 48 yards. Tuckers situation is attractive for fantasy leagu ...

Week 3 WR Rankings

Photo By: Anthony Gruppuso / US PRESSWIRE It's time to squash any doubts you may have had about Victor Cruz's production falling off after his breakout year in 2011. New York found themselves in a similar situation last week that they were in for many games last season; playing from behind and needing some big plays to win the game. Cruz delivered with an 80-yard touchdown on his way to close to 200 yards r ...

Week 2 RB Rankings

Photo By: Bruce Kluckhohn / US PRESSWIRE Ok, I'll admit it; I bet against Adrian Peterson making an impact week one and I was wrong. Peterson looked good and it's a terrific sign for the Vikings that he was back on the field and playing well. Then again, we've seen talented players come back after major injuries / illness (Wes Welker, Jeremy Maclin) and have big games early on, only to look average through ...

Week 2 Flex Rankings

Photo By: Ed Mulholland / US PRESSWIRE Shocker! The depth at wide receiver is better than that of running backs! While the passing game continues to dominate NFL offenses, when you can find productive running backs they're usually worth starting over a receiver, because they touch the football more often. Case in point is week one stars like C.J. Spiller, Alfred Morris dare I say Shonn Greene. Well, maybe w ...

Week 2 WR Rankings

Photo By: Don McPeak / US PRESSWIRE Three catches for 14 yards is nothing to brag about but because of the successful track record Wes Welker has, one would think this is just a disappointing day. Perhaps not, as ESPN's Mike Reiss points out that Welker rotated with Julian Edelman and only played about two-thirds of New England's offensive snaps. While this news brings pause for concern, I can't imagine Tom ...

Week 2 QB Rankings

Photo By: Denny Medley / US PRESSWIRE Don't tell me the preseason doesn't matter as Matt Ryan and Julio Jones looked just as good week one as they did through the month of August. For those of you that were hesitant in believing in Ryan's maturity as a quarterback, it's time to get on board. In past years, if the Falcons would've won in Kansas City, you can bet we would see a large dose of Michael Turner, a ...

Week 2 TE Rankings

Photo By: Kim Klement / US PRESSWIRE Perhaps the Patriots were telling us what they thought of their 2012 personnel when they gave Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski new contracts and failed to give Wes Welker a new deal. If Welker is one the decline we will see Hernandez reap the benefits in the short to intermediate passing game. Then again, it's not like the Patriots allowed Welker to walk away for nothi ...

Week 2 Team Defense Rankings

Photo By: Kim Klement / US PRESSWIRE If Week One's performance is any indication of how the 2012 season will go for the Patriots defense, then Bill Belichick has his boys playing some good football. Especially against the run as they dominated the Titans running backs for only nine yards on fourteen carries. If Chris Johnson is going to atone for his pathetic 2011 season, it will have to wait for another we ...
