Indianapolis Colts versus Chicago Bears:
- Cutler to Marshall is going to be in heavy rotation this season. 9/119 is only going to improve each week. Jay Cutler
threw Marshall’s direction 15 times including multiple red-zone targets.
- Alshon Jeffery was a pleasant surprise. There are more than enough receptions to go around, and Jeffery is a nice spot
start against the right defense. He should be picked up in deep leagues.
- Michael Bush! Every Forte owner’s worst nightmare. Expect him to be a vulture to Forte’s TD count all season.
- Stat of the game: Reggie Wayne saw nine passes in his direction by late in the first half before any teammate drew a
second target! Are you serious? In PPR leagues Wayne is a must start and is Luck’s favorite target by a long shot.
Atlanta Falcons versus Kansas City Chiefs:
- Julio Jones! My early season prediction is that Jones emerges from the 2012 season as the overall number one
receiver. It’s clear Roddy White is the number two option in a new pass heavy offense. Add this to Matt Ryan appearing
to finally be living up to his hype and we have a deadly combination going forward.
- Once thought to be heading towards a 50/50 carry split, it appears an 80/20 or 70/30 split is more likely between
Charles and Hillis “The White Rhino”. On another note, Charles went without a single catch. Concern? Nah not yet.
Philadelphia Eagles versus Cleveland Browns:
- If you were relying on a Browns player to win this week in your fantasy league, odds are pretty good you are already 0-1.
Richardson is the only startable player on the Browns and he may struggle in that offense for many weeks to come.
Little is not an option.
- McCoy actually played much better than his numbers will tell. He had three solid runs and a long pass play called back
by a penalty. He also didn't get any real red-zone chances as the Eagles struggled to sustain drives.
Monday Night Football – Balttimore Ravens versus Cincinnati Bengals:
- Andrew Hawkins goes 8/86. Should be on the pickup radar in deep PPR leagues, with anticipation that AJ Green draws
double coverage all season.
- Flacco appears to be in better control this year spreading to multiple options. Could be a solid start on a regular basis.
1. Randall Cobb – Nine receptions, a punt return touchdown, and even lining up in the backfield an incredible 19 times
makes Cobb the number one Waiver Wire addition after week 1. Yep that’s right, even over Olgetree.
2. Alfred Morris – This kills me cause Shanny is guaranteed to have you pulling your hair out with who starts and who sits
on the bench all season, but with a clear endorsement as the starter and an incredibly productive Week 1, 28 carries
for 96 yards, Morris now has his chance.
1. Greg Little (Any Offensive Brown’s Player, NOT named Richardson) – This included Weeden (not like you actually
owned him), Hardesty and Jackson (until further notice). Just simply not worth the roster space.
