Players to Drop back to Free Agency

With so many Fantasy Football players losing their minds after one week, many will be considering adding free agents.  To do so means you must cut players on your team.  Here is our list of 11 players that can safely be cut to add a new stud player from the NFL pool of Free Agents.

PLAYER TEAM Report
Rashad Jennings JAX Jennings was limited in his duties week one because of an injury, oh yeah, and Maurice Jones-Drew is back and shows no affects from his hold out.  Let the man go.
Kendall Wright TEN Wright looked a bit out of sorts early in the Patriots game, but began picking up Regular Season speed over the course of the game.  I’m not sure I would release Wright just yet.  I can see him on the Add list in 2 or 3 weeks

Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans Recap

Rookie quarterbacks in abundance on Sunday for the opening week of the NFL season.  In Houston it was, Ryan Tannehill stepping into the fire, and man did he get burned.  Tannehill was sacked three times, and pressured 4 more, and while avoiding the stress of a dynamic Texans defense managed to throw three picks in the game.  The rest of Miami’s offensive squad was just that, offensive.  Daniel Thomas, Reggie Bush and Tannehill all fumbled balls (only 1 was lost), the receivers could not make a play down field despite a respectable 11 yards per completion.  The defensive side looked strong.  Miami’s run defense held Houston to just 2.4 yards per carry, although Arian Foster was able to punch it in, twice.

On the Texans side of the field this was a great warm up game.  There was never a point where Houston was in fear of losing the game and the play calling showed it.  Matt Shaub was able to find Andre Johnson for a 14 yard touchdown late in the second half to give Houston a 24 – 3 lead.  Once AJ put the ball in the end zone the mood of the offensive play calling changed dramaticly.  In the second half Houston played a solid clock controling strategy and great team defense.  Its important to remember that this was only Miami, and they are going through a lot of changes at the moment, but Houston seems to have all the tools to put something great together.
