Panic time may be come early for some as the bye week came early

For Fantasy team owners it was apparent from the moment after the Lombardi trophy arrived in Green Bay that the imminent lockout would cause major problems deciding who to draft, once it was clear there would actually be one. Then the shortened pre-season, inability to gauge which rookies would make an impact, and which veterans lost one step too many where all resolved questions and byproducts of the lockout. so now that we’ve survived rounds 4-12 of the draft and got what we think is a winner in week one out come the injury reports and now . For those of you who will be without the services of your first round draft choice it appears the bye-week scuffling has come early. Peyton’s been a question mark for some time and made him drop do the third or fourth QB taken is most drafts, and probably by the guy who picked last so he could take a chance with the second of his back-to-backs. That or a real aggressive owner in the middle of the pack figuring the risk was worth the reward and needing to make a move to climb up the ranks. Well it looks like the river card has just been turned over and your straight is busted. Staying with the theme of risk takers the Chris Johnson roulette players knew he would be an RB2 or 3 in week one because of being in camp for just over a month but limited minutes and carries in a game that may not be close (vs. Jags) may force some to do the unthinkable and sit their number one overall pick in something other than in week 6. If these didn’t throw someone in your league for a loop then surely Arian Foster’s status for game one is a major concern as some leagues require line-ups in place by the start of the NFL week (this year on Thursday night), and his status for the game, or at least effectiveness is still not known. So the mainstay top picks will either not be available or certainly a step our two short of their normal weekly numbers so all of you looking to get out to an early lead and build a cushion may get your opportunity.
