Random Thoughts on Fantasy Football 2008 - WEEK 6

TO Alert Level - Now At Elevated, up from Guarded

TO didn't have any statement to make after the game yesterday, but did you see the outfit? He had on over sized sunglasses, a dress shirt with a black bow tie and a bright yellow sweater. Wait a minute, words don't do it justice, here it is courtesy of FanIQ

Tony Romo OUT for the next 4 weeks with a broken finger. Brad Johnson steps in. Bad news for TO. Not because Johnson can't throw, but because they'll try to get the run game more involved. Marion Barber owners, your ears should perk up.

Thomas Jones thank you sir for showing up. That is what all us fantasy players expected, though not all in one game. 2TD rushing and 1TD receiving. If you can give 75 yds and a TD a game we'll be extremely happy.

Nice game by the rookie Matt Ryan for ATL in an exciting win. Joe Flacco, not so much. Not that you should have been starting either one of them anyway. Same with JaMarcus Russell.

The Colts offense FINALLY showed up. Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne all looked good. Joseph Addai is now part of my "NEVER DRAFT EVER AGAIN" list. I said earlier this year that he always seemed dinged or coming out of games. He came out in the game and did not return, but Tony Dungy says he's OK and should be available for the next game. Joe is fragile is the only conclusion.

Matt Cassel looked all out of sorts against the Chargers. Randy Moss, left out in the cold. Wes Welker is still valuable in a PPR league with lots of targets and catches, but not getting alot of yardage. Was last week's great game by Cassel an anomaly? We shall see...

Warrick Dunn's 122 yards was made by Earnest Graham putting aside his ego and blocking for Dunn when all the other fullbacks got injured. So watch the injury reports this week and see if Storer and Askew will play. If they don't, Graham might have another bad stats game.

Phillip Rivers had another nice game with 3TD passes. He's going to carry this team the rest of the season as LT2's toe does not seem to be getting any better. I think there is going to be a matter of time before people ask why Darren Sproles is not getting more touches. They don't want to hurt LT's feelings...
