RECAPPING WEEK 10

Micheal Vick – he kills dogs and opposing football teams.  Enough said – on to the rest of the NFC East.  It’s comical how fast a team can fall from grace in the eyes of the finicky national media.  One ugly loss the the Cowboys and the ankles of media types are breaking as they jump off the Giants bandwagon.  Jon Kitna and Dex Bryant put on a show, but Eli Manning and Hakeem Nicks are still a better combo on a better team.  The Redskins are just bad and Monday night they were exposed as a team with overrated players a too little heart.

Keiland Williams was among the NFC East standouts.  He got the start after Portis could not go and second string running back Ryan Torain could not loosen up his hamstring.  He answered the bell with 89 rushing yards and two TDs.

The Cowboys under the new regime clearly committed to getting Felix Jones going.  That’s good news for Marion Barber in our estimation as well.  Barber was used in week 10 the way he used to be used when he was a TD machine.  Jones softened up the opponent early in games and in drives.

Trying to point out the Eagles week 10 standouts is like pointing out the hot girl at a Victoria’s Secrets photo shoot.  So, let’s move on.

INJURIES

EAGLES – Lesean McCoy (Shoulder) – did not practice on Wednesday, status unclear.

GIANTS – Ramses Barden (Ankle) – places on IR.  Steve Smith (pectoral) – reportedly out until December. Kevin Boss (back) – seems likely to play at this point.

REDSKINS – Clinton Portis (Groin) – questionable.  Ryan Torain (Hamstring) – they are trying to figure this injury out, no updates.

COWBOYS – No fantasy relevant injuries (outside of Romo)

WEEK 11 PREVIEW

GIANTS (Defensive rankings – Passing 4th/ Rushing 3rd)  @ EAGLES (Defensive rankings  Passing 16th/ Rushing 12th)

Lions (Defensive rankings – Passing 17th/ Rushing 26th)  @ COWBOYS

REDSKINS @ Titans  (Defensive rankings – Passing 25th/ Rushing 11th)

EAGLES – The Giants defense was exposed a bit by the Cowboys, but they are still a far cry from the sad, heartless unit the Eagles beat up on in DC.  Micheal Vick is a must start against any defense right now, as are Desean Jackson as a WR#1 and Jeremy Maclin as a WR#2.  Jason Avant does not quite see enough action to be a solid start and TE Brent Celek is not a fantasy starter with Vick under center.  Lesean McCoy owners should handcuff with Jerome Harrison, but we think McCoy will play in this important divisional game.  He is a solid start again this week if he plays.  Harrison would be a low end RB#2 if McCoy is out.

GIANTS - Hakeem Nicks kills the Birds they way Plaxico Burress did and there is no reason to think that will stop.  The Eagles secondary is prone to the big play and there is the potential for Nicks to do to them what Kenny Britt did and explode.  He is a WR#1 this week and Mario Manningham is a WR#2.  Watch for the status of Kevin Boss because TEs always beat up the Eagles defense.  He is worth a fantasy start if he plays.  Bradshaw is a RB#1.

REDSKINS -McNabb may not be able to win big games or come from behind, but he does post goodfantasy numbers, especially when his team is behind.  The Titans have the potential to open up a big lead with Randy Moss roasting the Skins secondary just like Jackson and Maclin did.  Anthony Armstrong is worth starting as a WR#3.  The only way you can feel comfortable with a Redskins RB is if Keiland Williams gets the start and Portis and Torain are both inactive.  Otherwise this situation has the makings of a RBBC of mediocre talent posting mediocre numbers.

COWBOYS -It looked like Witten and Kitna had something going, until week 1o that is.  We expect Witten to play a larger role this week.  The Lions are among the worst run defenses, so look for Felix Jones to play a big role early again.  It looks like Kitna much prefers rookie Dez Bryant to Miles Austin.  We are going to keep an eye on how may targets Austin gets and in what situation.  If there are signs that Kitna is going to him more often or in the redzone, this may be a great time to buy low on one of the better receivers in the league.  Bryant is a fantasy stud with Kitna at QB.
