The 2011 Fantasy football season continues to roll on. Drew Brees had a monster day on Sunday, throwing for 31 completions, 325 yards and 5 touchdowns. TE Jimmy Graham had another big outing, catching 2 of those touchdowns. Marques Colston had 2 touchdown catches himself as the Saints offense just continues to roll. Anyone playing Fantazzle’s weekly fantasy football salary cap games should pick any of these 3 Saints players when setting their lineups for the week. They seem to be producing great fantasy numbers at a consistent clip right now, so pick them with confidence!
Many fantasy leagues out there have byes weeks to deal with. If you started Tim Tebow at quarterback like I did for the week because of bye’s, then you were rewarded. Tebow started the game of slow, but wound up bringing the Broncos back for a win and finished the day with a solid fantasy effort. He threw for 161 yards, 2 touchdowns, a 2-pt conversion and 65 rushing yards; not bad for a bye week fill in. Demaryius Thomas, who was a hot waiver wire pick up this week with Brandon Lloyd being traded to St. Louis, salvaged his day with a touchdown catch late in the comeback win, so I guess he panned out.
DeMarco Murray also had himself one of the biggest fantasy days in week 7 rushing for 253 yards and a touchdown! That was a new Cowboys single game record. Felix Jones may have to miss some more time with that performance from Murray. I’d like to see another big game from Murray however, before I start recommending him for your weekly fantasy football games.
Moving on to injuries, Tim Hightower left the game after piling up 88 yards on the ground with a left knee injury. It looked pretty significant and he was carted off the field. If you haven’t already, grab Roy Helu and Ryan Torain. Percy Harvin also left his game early after re-aggravating his rib cage area. Hopefully, he can play next week with Chris Ponder looking formidable behind center. And in a surprising move, Joseph Addai was able to play at the last second. Most people thought he would sit out this week, but Addai ended up trying to give it a go. It wasn’t much of a go as he totaled 2 catches for 11 yards and rushed for only 8 more! The Indy backfield is just a mess.
