Early Fantasy Week starts tomorrow – get your changes in

Week 10 has a couple of curve balls as the Thursday Night games start and some key players are on bye week. Get your starting lineup together by checking weather, stats, and injuries on the Fantasy Football Page. Also chat live with other players on who they’re starting and sitting this week, at the Ultimate Sports Forum.
As many leagues do not re-draft going into the playoffs these become the money weeks as many a season is lost when the weeks get short and the weather gets bad. To add to the confusion for many the bye week will take some key players out of the mix as the top fantasy QB this year Phillip Rivers will not be available, nor will Drew Breese, or Aaron Rogers, or the players they throw to so the rule of them that “you’re only as good as your bench” will certainly come into play this week, so let’s get you started with some news and notes:
Look for Arian Foster to have a huge day against the Jags 22nd ranked defense vs. the run. Of course you got him, you’ll start him and no one has the Jags D anyway so this may not be breaking news but if you have to choose between and RB1 and RB2 then move him up to the top spot. Conversely, look out if you’re expecting Chris Johnson to get you 30+ points this weekend as he takes on a Dolphins defense that is 13th against the run and even better at home.
If Joseph Addai is available on waivers try to pick him up as, although he is not scheduled to return to action this week, he is slated to return next week against the Pats who gave up 184 yards and 30+ fantasy points to Peyton Hillis last week.
On Sunday Night when you’re down 20 points with only 1 YTP don’t worry if you’ve got Michael Vick scheduled to start as he should have a huge game going up against the Skins who are the worst in the NFL against the pass and 18th against the run. He should have them coming and going and picking his spots well. He’ll make up that deficit for you or hold your lead this week so give him the start.
Obviously Matthew Stafford will not be available for this week due to injury but now it’s looking like his season is over so it’s time to give him the pink slip if you’re not in a dynasty league that lets you hold over.
Sleeper Pick – Randy Moss practiced and will get some good reps as the Titans take on Miami. Moss historically has played well against the fish and you only need to reference his Patriot debut game a reference on how he tends to perform when he starts with a new team.
Back with the weather reports later in the week………………………………
