What You Thought: Week Four

Postby Kareighuis » Mon Oct 04, 2010 3:42 am

I may have misjudged the Cinci-Clev game in multiple ways-
-Hillis might not be a one-week wonder- 102 yards and a TD on 27 carries.
-Cinci doesn't seem to have as good a defense as I thought.
-Either Benson is reverting to prior form or Cleveland's run defense is much better than I anticipated.

McDaniels can create offense and may not be a bad coach after all. 100+ for Lloyd and Royal each, despite only 19 rushing yards- and 11 of them came from Orton. Broncos lead NFL in passing yardage, 2nd in attempts, 5th in completion percentage- but tied for 9th in passing TDs.

Shaun Hill is an excellent backup- perhaps a top-5 right now (based on non-injury preseason- Batch, Gradkowski, Kerry Collins). 300 passing yards, 2 TDs- and he has wheels, with 53 yards rushing. Almost beat GB.

If the 9ers (0-4) keep losing, at what point does Smith get benched? After the bye, when they're 2-6 or worse? When does Dixon start cutting into Gore's snaps? Just in time for the fantasy playoffs, with that juicy schedule of vSea, @SD, @StL?

Rotoworld- "On [Johnathan] Stewart's touchdown, he motioned out wide and the corner passed him on to the safety. The problem is the safety wasn't there and Stewart was all by himself for the [55 yard catch and run] score." Wonder what corner and safety were involved in that play? How will future opponents exploit this?

I foolishly plug-and-played Seattle's defense, beguiled by their 2-of-3 games of 20 fantasy points or more. Didn't realize until after the games started was that those great efforts came at home- on the road, a miserable 6 points. Qwest Field was specially designed to amplify the effects of Seattle's rowdy home crowd.

A team can win with their #1 WR doing zilch- see Santana Moss and Mike Sims-Walker.

Torain runs like a truck.
Vick still doesn't slide.
I had overrated Cutler because the hits on him obviously are causing problems.
I'm want Megatron on my team.

Rumors that Cutler may have been concussed earlier in that game, and tried to play it off. Someone said he was walking to the wrong sideline after one of the sacks.

Forte owners should have definately sold him when they had a chance.

The Bears O-Line is exactly what I though it was - absolutely PATHETIC.

I can't win in 1 of the legues (of 2) that I own Foster when he goes nuts due to Philly QB's getting knocked out of action (Kolb Week 1, Vick week 4).

Roddy White is among the NFL's absolute best WR's (that forced fumble was the best play in the NFL yesterday) in every facet of the game.

Something is wrong w/ Drew Brees (IMO knee is hurt worse than the Saints are letting us know)

The words elite & quarterback should never again be used in the same sentence when describing Carson Palmer.

Green Bay is going to score lots of points but won't win anything in January if they don't remedy their excuse of a running game.

Antonio Gates is uncoverable. By anyone (or 2, or 3). Period.

Megatron - see Gates comments.

Should have pre-emptively grabbed Ryan Torain in all leagues prior to Sunday.

The problem in SD may not have been LT after all, over 6 YPC behind a good line - novel thought.

The 0-49ers are undisiplined and poorly coached, Singletary is not right in the head & has no business being a head coach.

7-9 may win any divison that ends in "West".

The NFC is void of any real good team.

Foster can still post top 5 RB numbers despite (a) getting less than 20 total touches, and (b) missing the whole first quarter.

But, Derrick Ward would have value if Foster goes down. Ward posted great numbers in his 1+ quarter of play yesterday.

The Broncos 2-4 receivers will give headaches all year. Except for Lloyd, they've all had at least one fantastic game and one clunker. Lloyd is posting top 10 WR numbers so far this year, though.

McFadden is still injury prone. Just when he looked like he might have become a top 10 back, he had another hamstring issue (which is what kept him out of the preseason, IIRC). I'm not proclaiming his future value this season ruined, but if anyone sold him high after week 3, they made a smart move.

Ryan Torain earned more carries even if Portis' groin doesn't keep him out for week 5.

Marques Colston is frustrating. At 3-1 in my league, I'm not doubting my approach to waiting until round 4 to draft an RB. I am questioning my decision to take Colston in round 3, though.

You know, the Broncos could use a guy like that... :-?

I learned that Kolb is terrible and DJax better pray Vick heals up quickly.

I think people are too critical of Kolb right now...if he's named the starter again, he'll play better than yesterday.

I went to the Rams game and I left in awe of how good Bradford is and how lucky we are to have him in St. Louis. Aside from a hurting S-Jax, the Rams offense is a bunch of scrubs but he makes it work.
