i think mendenhall is a serious sleeper this week, and maybe even going forward. turf toe is a nasty thing, and if parker misses the next couple weeks, mendy could draw the start against:
the steelers seem intent on using moore as a 3rd down/injury desperation back, and with mendenhall a good 20lbs heavier, i think they'd give him a shot at the goal-line as well.
i'd give him the start this week if FWP can't go. coffee is my other choice, with barber/choice depending on who's starting as my 3rd.
as far as fred/lynch-why mess around with a brand new time share, on the road, against one of the league's best run D's? let that situation settle out, IMO.
