Week 4 Players to Add

In the ever changing world of Fantasy football, it is vital to know what is happening around the NFL and what effect that has on its players.   For example, 4 years ago, many people thought Tashard Choice was a valuable fantasy sleeper and could challenge for carries in Dallas.  Well, that never happened, however, now Choice is a incredibly value fantasy addition with C.J. Spiller going down.  Can the same be said for Daniel Thomas?

Week 4 players to add:

Jerome Simpson:  Back from a three game suspension for violating the NFL drug policy, Simpson will step in right away as the number two receiver in Minnesota.  Simpson is the perfect counterpart to the Vikings #1, Percy Harvin.  As Christian Ponder continues to develop, Simpson and he should be able to connect on a few down field strikes a game.  Pick him up now and stash him away, in two weeks you’ll have a diamond (thanks Ferris for allowing the butchered quote).

Armon Binns:  Binns has shown solid hands, above average route running and has the faith of Andy Dalton.  He has solidified himself as the number 2 man in Cincinnati and that should continue.  As long as the Bengals are airing out the ball, expect Binns to stay on his 10 – 12 point per week performances.

Early Injury Reports From Around the League

 We’ve got our first round of injury news coming out of Week 1 of the NFL season.  Very few fantasy football viable players are among those under concern.   The list is headlined by Greg Jennings of the  Green Bay Packers.  Jennings is suffering from a groin injury suffered against San Francisco and his availability to play on Thursday against the Bears is in question.

PLAYER TEAM Injury Report
Fred Jackson BUF Knee All accounts have Fred Jackson sitting out at least 3 weeks (Jackson has said he’ll be back in 4 weeks).  C.J. Spiller is the back up.  Moving up to the number 2 back with be former Cowboy running back Tashard Choice (may want to keep an eye on him)

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Recap

No one saw the 48 point onslaught from the New York Jets coming.  Mark Sanchez looked like the franchise quarterback the Jets thought he would when they traded up to get him.  The Sanchize threw for three scores, two to rookie Stephen Hill, and tallied 266 yards passing while going 19 of 27 above ground.  The Jets even managed to get Tim Tebow involved, giving the back up quarterback 5 carries, he gained 11 yards.
