- Martellus Bennett was a tenth-round draft pick this off-season and is performing as a Top-5 Tight End. Per the Rotoviz.com Game splits app we knew that Bennett averaged almost 2.5 FPs/G more with Jay Cutler slinging the rock in 2013. In 2014, Bennett has been targeted 18 times, behind only Brandon Marshall at 20.
Both Marshall and Jeffery were injured in Week 2, though these numbers are consistent with last year. Buy up Bennett shares now while you can, as at this rate he’s going to finish the season as a top-5 Tight End.
Have you bought into Bennett?
I drafted him FTW!
He'll come back down to Earth

- There were rumblings Kirk Cousins should replace RGIII under center in preseason. They were just rumblings though, and they were unfounded.
Now, with a lengthy RGIII injury, Cousins is a must add. He entered Sunday's game vs. Jacksonville and proceeded to go 22/33 [67%] with 2 TDS and 0 INT, in what turned out to be a 41-10 win.
Surrounded by a strong run game and solid receiving weapons, Cousins has the potential and opportunity to be a high upside weekly QB2 with occasional QB1 numbers. Playing in the NFC East is an added bonus.
Cousins is my man, sign me up!
Umm, no thanks
Not bad, but I'll go elsewhereShare this Story×Google+posted by: pgross31Opinion
- Brian Quick made my ears perk up last week vs. the Vikings with a 7 rec., 99 yard performance on 9 targets.
After another 7 receptions for 74 yards Sunday vs. the Bucs, he now has my full attention.
With no real playmakers outside of a sporadic Tavon Austin [who might miss the next two weeks or more], Quick may very well provide WR2 consistency for the remainder of the season.
While TDs may be occasional under Austin Davis/Shaun Hill, the volume is certainly there for production, especially in PPR leagues. Will you pick up Quick?
Quick will be a reliable option
I'm not buying
Eh, if I have a roster spot I'll add himShare this Story×Google+posted by: pgross31Opinion
- Adam Schefter tweeted out information today regarding suspended NFL players to be reinstated by the NFL once the new drug policy has been agreed upon [he also mentioned 20 players in total will be affected].
A few names: Broncos WR Wes Welker, Rams WR Stedman Bailey, Cowboys DB Orlando Scandrick, Giants OL Eric Herman, and DE Spencer Nealy [former Viking].
Both WRs LaVon Brazill [formerly of the Colts] and Josh Gordon will serve 10 game suspensions. They were both previously banned for the season. Does the Josh Gordon reduction make sense?

- 1. Brandon Marshall is tougher than a $2 steak. A somewhat surprising starter Sunday night, Marshall hobbled his way to three touchdowns. Bears fans swooned.2. The 49ers are vulnerable. The defense lacks last year's depth and the offensive line is weaker. If Colin Kaepernick cannot take a step forward, San Francisco may not win 10 games.3. Al Michaels isn't nearly the play-by-play guy he used to be. Half the time time I wonder if he is even watching the game.Instead of paying attention, what is Al Michaels doing?

- The Minnesota Vikings released a statement today on Adrian Peterson. It starts off by saying:
"Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will fully participate in this week's practices and meetings and is expected to play this Sunday in New Orleans."
It's followed up by a statement from Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf, who say the "decision was made after significant thought, discussion and consideration. You can read the statement in full here.
Is reinstating AP the right move?

- RB Jamaal Charles [ankle] left Sunday's game in the first quarter and never returned. Jason La Canfora has reported the sprain is believed to be mild and the Chiefs hope he doesn't miss significant time. He has an MRI set for Monday to gauge actual severity. Knile Davis will start in Charles' absence.How To Proceed: If you own Charles, it's worth sending out trade offers for Knile Davis, and if he happens to be on the waiver wire, don't be afraid to use a large amount of waiver bank on him. You may need him.Are you bailing on Jamaal Charles?
Yes, I'm full of regret.
No, he cost too much to sell now.
Depends on what the MRI reveals

- WR Desean Jackson [shoulder] has been diagnosed with an AC joint sprain in his shoulder.
His timetable for return hasn't been released, though we can plan on being without him for at least a week. RG3 went out in the same game and was replaced by Kirk Cousins. Cousins didn't really target Pierre Garcon while DJax was out, so that may be a positive for when Jackson returns.How To Proceed: Target Mohamed Sanu on waivers. If he is owned, attempt a trade for him. AJ Green may be out another week, leaving Sanu as the top WR option on the Bengals.Share this Story×Google+View all Injury Updates & How To Proceed storiesposted by: @Ty_In_StLInfo
- 1. Despite the spending spree, the Denver defense isn't as good as I thought they'd be. Having now allowed 780 yards the first two weeks, the Denver D has work to do.2. Travis Kelce may be the most underused player in the NFL. He is far and away the most dynamic pass catcher in KC, but rarely is the first option on offense.3. Peyton Manning throws tantrums with the best of 'em. His undressing of Julius Thomas would have made Gordon Ramsey blush.Who would win an argument about whose turn it is to do the dishes?

- 1. Zac Stacy is still the Rams RB to own in fantasy. Up against one of the better defenses in the NFL, Stacy had an OK game with 71 yards and a TD [plus a fumble]. Benny Cunningham had only seven touches for 19 yards.2. Bobby Rainey is probably going to start over Doug Martin. It seems wrong, but it looks right.3. Brian Quick is somebody you should get to know. I said it last week in this same space, but Quick is the Rams' #1 WR and is doing something with it.How many yards will Quick total in 2014?

- 1. The Chargers are the perfect foil for Seattle. Their high percentage, move the chains offense is the panacea for Seattle's high energy, high impact defense.2. Seattle can struggle on the road. This was a reminder that last season they could have issues on the road at times.3. Donald Brown will be good enough. He may not have the pure rushing talent of apparently badly injured Ryan Mathews, but his well roundedness will make him a fine fill-in. Chargers fans don't need to panic.Will Brown be better, worse, or about the same for the SD offense?

- 1. Derek Carr has an NFL future. Sure there are rough patches, but Carr passes the eyeball test, looking every bit the part of an NFL QB. I am excited for his future.2. What Darren McFadden once had is no more. Maybe injuries have taken their toll? All I know is McFadden's once bright future has gotten very dim.3. Houston is not a 2-0 level team, but could easily go 8-8. A good defense, a rejuvenated Arian Foster, and a good-enough Ryan Fitzpatrick could make Houston a surprise wild card team.How many games will the Texans win?

- 1. Geno Smith isn't perfect, but he has an NFL future. The one play I can point to was the 4th down completion late in the game after Marty Mornhinweg's baffling time out killed an amazing Jeremy Kerley TD. Smith showed incredible poise in a very adverse moment.2. Green Bay is not without issues. The offensive line specifically is going to be a season long problem.3. Chris Ivory should be dominating carries for the Jets. Too many more games like this from CJ2k and he will be.Which NYJ RB will lead the team in yards this year?

- 1. Both of these teams have scary-good run defenses. I would do what I could to keep from playing my RBs vs them in fantasy.2. Kelvin Benjamin is still raw. It was easy to forget this after the combination of his preseason and Week 1 performances, but Benjamin's three drops show he still needs polish.3. Joique Bell is going to outscore Reggie Bush in fantasy leagues. This is sort of a cheat, since I have been saying this for months, but this game just reaffirmed my hunch.Who will score the most points among Lions' RBs this year?
