– This is a week where we see virtually unknown running backs, Jason Snelling (Falcons), Bernard Scott (Bengals), Justin Forsett (Seahawks), Ladell Betts (Redskins), take the start for their respective teams, due to their teams top running backs being injured. On my roster this week for running backs were :
Joseph Addai – @Bal, Kevin Smith – Cle, LeSean McCoy – @Chi, Jason Snelling – @NYG, Jamaal Charles – Pit, Knowshon Moreno – SD.
I went with Addai, K. Smith, and Snelling (instead of McCoy). I felt like going for the long shot and I hope it pans out…I hate those decisons. Already Jamaal Charles has returned a 97 Yd. Kickoff for a TD, but there was no way I was starting him against Pitt. At least I will get to see how good he is, because if he has a good game against Pittsburgh today, then I know i’ve got someone I can rely on the rest of the season. Should be an interesting week….

– Brady Quinn and Josh Freeman both have already thrown TD’s passes in their respective games. I think Brady Quinn needs to leave Cleveland and start fresh somewhere else, because he’s got talent. Josh Freeman is going to be a pro-bowl caliber QB for years to come.

– Brady Quinn now has 3 TD passes in the 1st Quarter…that’s insane. I wonder if anyone in the fantasy football world started Brady Quinn today?

– Ravens (K)Billy Cundiff has kicked field goals of 46 yards, and 44 yards. Looks like the Ravens made the right choice when they signed him, just last week.
UPDATE : He just kicked another FG of 38 yards….Cundiff is looking like a guy you may want to consider for your fantasy teams.
UPDATE 2: He just kicked another FG of 36 yards……..4 FOR 4 in field goal attempts in the first half.
UPDATE 3: Cundiff missed a FG, but added another one, so he is 5/6 in field goal attempts today.

– The game between the lowly Browns and Lions has turned into a shootout. They are tied at 24 a piece in the first half, and Lions (QB)Matthew Stafford has thrown for 3 TD’s (Kevin Smith, Calvin Johnson, Aaron Brown) and Browns (QB)Brady Quinn has thrown for 3 TD’s (Mohamed Massaquoi, Chansi Stuckey, Joshua Cribbs).

– Redskins (RB)Ladell Betts got injured and left the game…Now the Redskins are down to Rock Cartwright baby!!!!!

– As of the 3rd quarter, Vikings (QB)Brett Favre has 4 TD passes (Sidney Rice, Bernard Berrian, Visanthe Shiacoe, Percy Harvin).

– Rookies have played a big part in scoring touchdowns so far in the early games….Lions (QB)Matthew Stafford, Lions (RB)Aaron Brown, Browns (WR)Mohamed Massaquoi, Buccaneers (QB)Josh Freeman, Vikings (WR)Percy Harvin, and 49ers (WR)Michael Crabtree so far through 3 quarters.

– As of the end of the 3rd quarter, Lions (QB)Matthew Stafford has 4 TD passes (Kevin Smith, Aaron Brown, Will Heller, Calvin Johnson).

– Has T.O. finally arrived in Buffalo?…so far he has 182yds./8 rec./1TD entering the 4th quarter.

– Chiefs (LB)Andy Studebaker made his first career start today against the Pittsburgh Steelers and has 2 interceptions, one of which he picked off in the end zone on a Steelers scoring drive, and ran it back the other way 94 yards, before being tackled by Rashard Mendenhall.

– What a game between the Lions and Browns…..The Lions were down by the score of 37-31, and with seconds remaining, Matthew Stafford connected on his 5th touchdown pass on the day to (TE)Brandon Pettigrew for the win.

– The Cardinals will be in serious trouble if Kurt Warner’s injury turns out to be one that keeps him out of action for some time. Matt Leinart will affect the fantasy status of Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin, but it may help out Chris Wells and Tim Hightower.
