Fantasy Blitz - ArticlesPosted On: 12/31/11Cardinals 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.

For newer players and leagues this is the first time in years where we were not wondering if some star fantasy players were going to sit or play because their teams had wrapped up home field for the playoffs. That was always the case for the past several years with Peyton Manning, as we all know he is sitting for different causes in 2011. With playoff seeds still very much up in the air, your players should be taking the field this week barring being slowed by injuries.

Plus positional rankingsPosted On: 11/11/11When you view this week’s NFL Schedule, the Rams at the Browns appear to be one of the few games that will have no playoff implications. While that is true, these teams have a rich history of not only sharing the same city but facing each other in three classic title games in the 1950’s The Cleveland Rams were an expansion team in 1937. They won the NFL title in 1945 led by the passing and place kicking of rookie of the year quarterback Bob Waterfield. They packed up a couple of months after winning the championship and moved to sunny Los Angeles for 1946. In 1946 a new league was formed, the All America Football Conference, one of its members were the Cleveland Browns, they replaced the Rams as Cleveland’s team. The Browns dominated the new league winning every championship from 1946 to 1949. After 1949, three AAFC members, the Browns, 49ers, and Colts merged with the NFL. The Browns were placed in the Eastern Division for 1950, which was renamed the American Conf...Posted On: 11/3/11Panthers, Lions, Jaguars, and Vikings have the bye Cardinals, Kevin Kolb is still slowed by a foot injury, Jon Skelton could start vs. the Rams this week…Chris Wells and Alfonso Smith have a great match up vs. the 32nd ranked run defense of the Rams, they are allowing 165.6 yards a game on the ground and 5.2 yards a carry Falcons, RB Michael Turner has rushed for 317 yards and three scores his last three games…he faces the 31st ranked run defense of the Colts, who allow more than 140 yards a game on the ground and have given up 10 rushing scores Ravens, WR Lee Evans is still not practicing, Torrey Smith will get the start Sunday against the Steelers Bills, great match up this week for RB Fred Jackson, the Jets are 25th against the run allowing almost 127 yards a game on the ground, and they have given up nine rushing scores Bears, WR Earl Bennett had been cleared to play, when he is healthy he is a favorite target of his college teammate Jay Cutler, this will diminish...
Plus a couple of records, and a correctionPosted On: 10/29/11The Saints set a team record for most points scored in a game, by compiling 62 against the hapless Colts Sunday Night, with injured Colt quarterback Peyton Manning watching from the sideline…….there is a common thread here, the most points the Saints have ever allowed in a game is also 62, in a loss 62-7 loss to the Falcons opening day 1973 at Tulane Stadium, Archie Manning, Peyton’s Father was the Saints starting quarterback on that forgettable day; Archie completed 5 passes on thirteen attempts, and threw five interceptions…..on another note, NBC, ESPN, and the NFL Network need to check their facts, they reported Sunday night that the 62 points allowed by the Colts was a franchise record, eclipsing the record of fifty eight points the Colts allowed in a 1956 loss to the Bears, which happened to be the game in which John Unitas completed his first pro pass….but the Colts were actually worse on October 22, 1950, when they allowed 70 points, in a 70-2...Posted On: 10/20/11Bills, Bengals, Patriots, Giants, Eagles, and 49’ers are on the bye this week, week nine is the last week with byes.
