More Random Thoughts on Fantasy Football 2008 - WEEK 1

Darren McFadden left last night's game with a shoulder injury. This could be nothing, I have not seen the reports yet. But this was the knock on him coming out of college, that he was a high injury risk. Look for Justin Fargas as a pickup or even Michael Bush on the waiver wire this week.

Javon Walker, I knew I didn't trust you. Scratched from the game because of a hamstring injury. How many fantasy football owners took you on name reputation alone in their drafts? How many had you in their lineups last night?

On the flipside, Eddie Royal looks like a legitimate player and not just a one week fill-in for suspended Brandon Marshall. With Marshall coming back next week and Jay Cutler playing extremely well, this could be the next high powered offense in the NFL.

Fantasy Football owners - heed this lesson - NEVER, EVER depend on a Bronco running back....unless it is a flex position on your roster.
