|Fantasy Football Kick Off Weekend
By Jason Behr
September *, 2010
What a great time of year with the NFL opener just hours away that signals
the start of fantasy football leagues across the nation.
As long as your top notch guys have avoided any pre season injuries your
roster should be locked and loaded from your draft. The one major scare
happened this morning when it was reported that Tom Brady, who happens
to be my starting quarterback, was involved in a car accident. Fortunately
for me and every other Brady owner he wasn’t hurt and walked away just
fine. Larry Fitzgerald(another player I own) with a sprained mcl and Sydney
Rice with hip surgery are among the few star players with injury concerns.
Rice is due to be out for the first half of the season and Fitzgerald is still on
pace to play on Sunday. Ronnie Brown has also got glowing reviews
coming back from his major knee surgery last year down in Miami.
This should be the easiest week of the season to set your rosters and just
go with the guys you drafted. After all you drafted them for a reason and
need to find out what they will do.
With all that being said there are several high profile match ups this week.
The Colts vs Texan game has the potential for some heavy quarterback
point totals with neither team having a sturdy defense. The Lions and
Bears game (bias alert Detroit born and bred) should see Mike Martz’s
revamped offensive for the Bears get off to a very healthy start. I can see
all 3 Bear’s wr’s coming away with a good number of catches. On the
other end of the spectrum the Jets and Ravens along with the Titans and
Oakland match ups feature some of the best defenses the NFL has to offer
and fantasy points could be hard to come by.
Good luck to one and all this season and feel free to send me your
comments and questions at Jason@theisn.net thru out the season.
