If you started David Wilson in one of your fantasy leagues, you were also crying.


Tony Romo – People bash Romo far too much. Given, he was playing against a decimated Giants defensive backfield tonight, but the offensive line he was playing behind is a joke – a joke which lost their center early in the game and replaced him with a guy who’s been on the team for about 9 days or so. Romo kept plays alive with his feet and carried the rest of the offense on his back. The only blemish on his game tonight was the early interception to Boley.

DeMarco Murray – Murray ran really well tonight. I hope Felix Jones is nice and comfortable on the bench, because that’s where he’ll be staying as long as Murray remains healthy.

Martellus Bennett – Bennett flashed a little tonight, including a pretty amazing clutch TD catch. Let’s see if he can keep it up. He had a big head in Dallas, hopefully it doesn’t get too large.


Giants CBs – Yeah, they’re suffering from some injuries, but even Corey Webster didn’t play well tonight. He was smoked for a TD on a double move by Ogletree while he was busy looking at the QB. Huge area of concern for the Giants here. They need Amukamura back fast. Or at least Coe.

Cowboys OL – Lots of penalties and they were pretty disastrous on top of that. The Cowboys were able to compensate with some quick slants aimed at the Giants’ decimated secondary, but they’re not going to be able to get away with that every week.

David Wilson – He fumbled and was never heard from again except for kick returns. After his fumble he was crying on the sideline and Coughlin couldn’t even bring himself to yell at him. 


Don’t count on Kevin Ogletree performing like that all year. He wasn’t exactly matching up against a star studded cast in the Giants’ secondary, although he did burn Corey Webster for one of those touchdowns. DeMarco Murray is looking very promising as a #1 fantasy RB, but this was not unexpected. He was probably drafted in the top ten of every fantasy football league. Witten is still recovering from a lacerated spleen and didn’t put any numbers up tonight, but I doubt it’ll stay that way. If David Wilson keeps fumbling like he did in college Bradshaw is going to get more touches than he usually gets this year. If one of your TEs gets murdered this week, Martellus Bennett is probably available on your waiver wire.

Just like another famous wizard, sometimes people journey down colorful brick roads seeking my assistance. However, since the dawn of the “Internet” such barbaric methods of seeking supplication have been replaced by the convenience of “The Electronic Letter Service,” co-invented by Nicola Tesla and Al Gore in the late 20th century. I now take time out from my work sealing the dimensional rift that unfortunately allowed Richard Nixon, Lady Gaga and Bill Belichick into our dimension to dispense wisdom to a noble pilgrim named Anthony Roselle, from the Garden State. All seekers are rewarded with my wisdom… and a complementary cockatrice and alpaca meat empañada from the Foosball Wizard Bodega in Bed-Stuy (Catering is available for parties of 20 or more.)

In my other league someone dropped Kevin Kolb, would you recommend picking him up. Schaub is my QB and I don’t have a back up. I would have to give up my WR6 Devin Hester for him. I think it is a good idea, and stash him on the bench.

Also, someone dropped Zach Miller and Owen Daniels. Chris Cooley is my TE1, I would have to drop my TE2 John Carlson. Do you think it’s worth dropping Carlson for Miller or Daniels?

You would not believe how difficult these things are to hunt and grind into empañada meat.

Although I seem to be the only person who wasn’t high on Kevin Kolb he looked even more awful and lost than I expected in week one.  If you don’t have a backup QB right now, I would pick Kolb up because Reid and the Eagles tend to be stubborn about their starting QB and I think he will be back in the lineup unless Vick absolutely lights it up or he fails to pass a concussion test. It is a gamble, but given your need at the position and the fact that you will only be giving up Devin Hester I think it is worth it. He could be a solid #2 QB for a fantasy team assuming he keeps his job. I would only keep Hester if you are thin at WR or there is not great depth at WR in your free agent pool. If players like Laurent Robinson, Mike Williams (SEA), Mario Manningham or Cris Chambers are available as free agents dumping Hester is a no-brainer here.

Chris Cooley is a decent #1 TE and the starter on two thirds of my fantasy teams this season. I tend to only carry one TE, as I feel it’s better to keep an extra RB, WR or QB. I like Carlson, but I don’t hold out a lot of hope for the Seattle offense this year. I think he is going to draw a lot of attention due to the fact that Seattle WRs don’t scare anyone. I’m pretty sure they replaced one of Deion Branch’s feet with a skateboard last year. Actually, both feet may be skateboards by this time. I would drop Carlson if you want to pick up Daniels, who can put up some nice numbers at TE if he has recovered from offseason knee surgery. However, you may wish to consider dropping Carlson for for Kevin Kolb and keeping Hester on your roster. This last option is the one I would take, all other things being equal. However, depending on the availability of WRs and QBs in your league keeping a second TE might not be such a bad idea.
