Fantasy Football Week 1 Notes.

September 09, 2008 |

Some Notes from week 1:

The Jaguars have lost their starting center, both starting guards, and a key reserve at tackle. Their top reserve at guard may also be hurt. Much of their offense was built on the strength of the offensive line. Now it’s a huge question mark. David Garrard, Fred Taylor, and Maurice Jones-Drew are talented enough to overcome some issues, but that is a lot of carnage to deal with. 4 of the top 6 Offensive Linemen are now on the shelf.

On another front Seattle is running out of WR’s, as Nate Burleson was lost for the year with a knee injury. Deion Branch seems at least another week away so that leaves Courtney Taylor as Seattle number 1 receiver. Taylor struggled on Sunday in his first start.

Denver RB situation looks like a mess a usual, as does the New England situation.

As expected I wanted to wait a week on McFadden and Mendenhall…now I want to wait another week before putting them into your fantasy lineup.

Eddie Royal certainly looks like a nice fit in Denver and he could be even better when Brandon Marshall returns this week.

Let Willis McGahee prove he is healthy before you plug him into your fantasy lineup.

The Bears and Ravens Defenses certainly looked back in form for week 1.

Michael Turner will be a solid Fantasy performer this year…but he had the best week he is going to have already.

It was nice to see Donovan McNabb looking like the QB he was…could Deshawn Jackson truly be that good…or was STL that bad.

Steven Jackson is a tough SOB. Better days ahead for him and the STL offense.

Kerry Collins helps the Titans more then VY does…and Fantasy owners as well.

Reason one you never take a QB in round 1…if he gets hurt the rest of your team can’t pick up for him…in a Keeper League I have Tom Brady…so I am in the boat with ya…but I got Jay Cutler in the 8th round…so if you take a QB in round 1, you better have a backup early just in case.

FINDS: Eddie Royal, Matt Forte, Michael Turner, DeShawn Jackson..

Flukes: Hank Baskett, Greg Lewis, DeAngelo Williams
