Bears' defense unprepared on fourth-and-11
Chicago Sun-Times
On the play that could've ended the Vikings' hopes in regulation, the Bears' defense was caught flat-footed Sunday. And pointing. And calling a play.
Heather Nelson's insight:

Sounds like the Bears' defense story all year: unprepared. Wish I had something better to stick in my lineup, but I don't.

Atlanta Falcons' running game is coming to life behind Steven Jackson
The Augusta Chronicle
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — Steven Jackson said Wednesday running the ball in the NFL requires patience and commitment.
Heather Nelson's insight:

The Falcons can keep using Jackson all they want. I'd like him to score me more fantasy points. I'm all for that because Matt Ryan seems to be lacking there...

Denver Broncos' Peyton Manning denies any problems in cold ... | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
It's pretty tough to beat Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos wherever you play them these days. But there are certain elements that have befuddled Manning through the years -- he used to have specific issues with 3-4 ...
Heather Nelson's insight:

Okay.... seriously. The stats, stories, etc are getting absurd. I'm not sure how this could be factual. Think about it... Manning played in a DOME most of his career. I think it will be fine. He can win. He will adapt.

With Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola out at the start of the season, Julian Edelman experienced an unexpected run of fantasy relevance.
Heather Nelson's insight:

I'm fairly certain this happened because Welker is gone... and Amendola is injurt prone.

Bye weeks are often welcomed by teams because they provide a chance for players to heal up the aching body parts they’ve accumulated over the course of the season.
Heather Nelson's insight:

Well... sucks for Chiefs fans. But quite honestly he wasn't doing anything for my fantasy lineup and has been on my bench now for quite some time.

The Bears have one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. They rank 29th, giving up 127.5 yards per game on the ground.

Alas, I failed to gain any ground on MDS in Week Eight.  I didn’t lose any either.  We each went 10-3, splitting the two games on which we differed.

With the Broncos not playing this week, this gives me an idea of what games I should keep an eye on. And no, I don't care about the Chiefs game...

If star athletes sell junk food -- is your kid more likely to eat it? | Fantasy Football | Scoop.it
NFL star Peyton Manning is nearly as famous for his product pitches as his football passes, building an endorsement empire that has included Papa John’s pizza and Oreo cookies.

Via Thomas Faltin
Heather Nelson's insight:

While this is completely irrelevant to fantasy football, I find that Papa John's marketing campaign is a job well done. I crave pizza -- Papa John's, of course -- while watching NFL Sundays. So, props to you, too, Peyton.

Fantasy Football Week 7 QB rankings

ESPN's fantasy football rankings of quarterbacks for Week 7.
Heather Nelson's insight:

Thankfully, Matt Ryan is still in the Top 10, despite his team's overall performance. I mean, he is a good quarterback, but he can't do everything for the team. 

more...
Team Vernon's curator insight, October 23, 2013 2:34 PM

Whatever will I do without Drew Brees? No, seriously.

 

Brees, my best fantasy player, has a bye this week. These ESPN rankings are a good source for finding a strong backup quarterback for one week.

 

New Minnesota quarterback Josh Freeman is an interesting name here. While he struggled in his first game back, the Vikings still threw the ball 53-times Sunday.

 

His accuracy should improve with another week of practice. Lots of passes should result in more points.

It appeared obvious at the time, but now we can put an official title on Danny Amendola's injury. The receiver has a concussion.

Aaaaand this is why I waited on putting Amendola back in my lineup. Might as well drop him at this point to find something better.

The Lions have given running back Reggie Bush days off from practice here and there this season, always citing the knee that kept him out of one game early this season as the reason for his absence.
Heather Nelson's insight:

Hoping this doesn't keep him out of the lineup... I need him because my other options are extremely slim.

Broncos' Wes Welker sits out practice but is improving

Welker took a big hit against Kansas City early in the fourth quarter when he was running across the middle after a catch and was sandwiched between two Chiefs. He needed help to get off the field but returned about three-and-a-half minutes later - only to take himself out a 9-yard catch.


Via Ann Mcclellan
Heather Nelson's insight:

Hope he plays in the game on Sunday... It would be unfortunate for him to not get a chance to play against his old team, and in a great tough game for the Broncos.

Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Heather Nelson's insight:

I would think that this is without question, because the Patriots are never really verbal about injury status. A questionable tag means nothing to me. Plus, my team is garbage, and I'm losing interest in my wins and losses.
