FANTASY BLITZ: Fantasy News & Notes Week 17

Nicks

 

Cardinals John Skelton will start at quarterback Sunday against the Seahawks

Falcons; team is saying Michael Turner will get his same workload, but my bet is Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling share snaps

Panthers, Congratulations to Cam Newton for breaking the rushing touchdown record for quarterbacks with 14 this year, Steve Grogan a rookie with the Patriots in 1976 had set the record with twelve in a 14 game season. Grogan was the last QB to call his own plays full time in 1990, the last of the true Old School quarterbacks and was always a class player.

Giants, WR Hakeem Nicks has been dropping passes, but he should rebound against the Cowboys, he had 14 reception, 190 yards and two scores in 2010 against the Cowboys

Eagles, RB LeSean McCoy, who based on average draft position selected is Fantasy MVP 2011

Chargers, RB Curtis Brinkley will be the sleeper of the week against the Raiders
