FANTASY FOOTBALL IN-SEASON FEATURES
||Denver (first in sacks, second in DST TDs) against a Chiefs' offense that's turned the ball over 31 times. Yes, please.
||Minnesota's offense already has some issues; add the strip-happy Chicago tacklers and Devin Hester in the return game and this could get interesting.
||You can pencil J.J. Watt in for at least two drumsticks off that turducken.
||Carolina's D is underrated; Nick Foles' ability to emulate Michael Vick's turnovers is spot-on.
||Where have we seen the face Philip Rivers made when Ed Reed's suspension got lifted? What was that Olympic gymnast's name?
||Taking the old checkers/chess analogy a step further, Bill Belichick is playing chess; Mark Sanchez is playing tic-tac-toe.
||Washington ranks sixth in interceptions; funny, Tony Romo has been known to throw six interceptions from time to time.
||The Packers are darn near out of offensive linemen, while the Giants have a seemingly endless pool of pass rushers. Something's bound to get double-checked here.
||Minnesota's pass rush goes after Jay Cutler behind a really bad offensive line helmed by their former coach. Get your popcorn.
||Andrew Luck is better at home, but that doesn't mean Buffalo's playmakers in the secondary can't still have some fun at his expense.
||Maybe his roommate snores. Maybe he gets motion sickness. Whatever the reason, Joe Flacco on the road is not a pretty sight.
||No Woodson, maybe no Mathews, and a Giants o-line that's allowed the fewest sacks in the league. At least Eli has thrown 11 picks.
||Aldon Smith will seriously test just how quick Drew Brees can get rid of the football.
||What better way to welcome Carson Palmer back to Cincinnati than with a Bengals D that ranks third in taking down the opposing quarterback?
||Arizona has given up almost a sack a game more than the next closest team. That bodes well for Chris Long's sack total.
||Seattle's defense isn't quite as effective only playing with 11.
||Charlie Batch. Charlie. Batch. Bet you can't say it three times without laughing.
||Expected more from Patrick Peterson? Same here. Here's his chance to make it up to us.
||Chad Henne didn't look nearly as bad as expected last week; no reason to think the Titans will pressure him into something different.
||If last week's Matt Ryan--the one who threw five INTs--shows up again, the Bucs are dramatically underrated here.
||Not only do the Patriots put up points, they protect the ball--and their quarterback. Rex has his work cut out for him.
||You'd think the Steelers are still a pretty good defense, but a bottom five ranking in fantasy points generated says otherwise.
||The knock on Josh Freeman used to be an inability to take care of the football. That's changed dramatically this season.
||Miami can get to the quarterback, but Russell Wilson is mobile. And Seattle is going to pound the rock anyway.
||No team has generated fewer turnovers than the Colts, which means Ryan Pickspatrick should be safe for at least a week.
||If it weren't for the Raiders Jacksonville's D would be dead-dog last in both sacks and turnovers generated. That's not a good combo.
||Disproving the theory that the best defense is a good offense, your New Orleans Saints!
||This should be a much more favorable matchup for the Cowboys' DST, but dang if RG3 isn't taking pretty good care of the football.
||Clearly, it's the defensive coordinator's fault. Oh, wait...
||No team generates fewer fantasy points than the Raiders, but Cincy has served up four DST TDs already so maybe they can help.
||In theory the Chiefs have the defensive horses to cause problems for Peyton Manning. In practice, not so much.
||Detroit isn't generating turnovers, which in turn is not leading to scoring defensive touchdowns. And Houston's offense will offer no assistance.
