Fantasy News and Notes

   

Cardinals, QB Kevin Kolb will play Sunday against the Cowboys…. ending John Skelton’s career

Ravens, The Browns have the top ranked pass defense in the NFL…which is why their run defense is 29th. Ray Rice is an automatic start but if you need a RB this week, take Ricky Williams

Panthers, The Panthers have the most favorable rushing match up of the week, facing the Buccaneers 30th ranked run defense, DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, and Cam Newton will have a solid fantasy day

Bears, Jay Cutler admitted that he is done for the season; the pins that were inserted into his thumb could be there for 10 weeks….the Bears will ride Caleb Hanie as far as he can take them 

Browns, RB Peyton Hillis will start against the Ravens…on paper a tough match up but he was 22-144 and a score in their first game against the Ravens last year

Cowboys, Jerry Jones said WR Miles Austin will play this week, bold statement considering he still has not practiced…Laurent Robinson will start again this week

Broncos, RB Willis McGahee will play Sunday, despite reports he is walking with a wrapped ankle, he has played through pain all year…would not be surprised if he is not the Broncos representative at the 2012 Ed Block Courage Awards in Baltimore   

Lions, RB Kevin Smith’s ankle injury is healing better than first thought, but he will miss Sunday’s game against the Saints….veteran Maurice Morris will get most of the carries

Houston, TE Owen Daniels is healthy now and will start against the Falcons Sunday

Chiefs, Head coach Todd Haley said Tyler Palko will start against the Bears…he has been awful…Kyle Orton will be behind center week 14 at the Jets

Giants, WR Hakeem Nicks and RB Ahmad Bradshaw will  not play against the Packers Sunday…they will not need them…you heard it here first, the Giants will win

Raiders, RB Darren McFadden will not be back to week 14 at Green Bay; Michael Bush is making the most of his snaps

49’ers, Reports are that RB Frank Gore might not be at full strength against the Rams Sunday, he will be and has one of the best rushing match ups of the week, facing the Rams 32nd ranked run defense that allows 159 yards a game
