Weekend Recap: Week 9

They say ignorance is bliss. Bologna. At least when it comes to fantasy football, I prefer the saying, "Knowledge is power." Gathering as much information as you can will give you and your team(s) the best chance to win each week. Injuries, new starters (there will be a ton of them for Week 10), and past performances are all included under the knowledge category. Usually, that'll translate into power, or in the case of fantasy football, wins and championships. - Matt Schaub, Kyle Orton, and Dan Orlovsky are out. Sage Rosenfels, Rex Grossman (*gasp*), and Drew Stanton/Daunte Culpepper are in. I'd only suggest picking up Rosenfels. - Trey Wingo reports that Derek Anderson has been benched not because of injuries like Schaub and company, but because of poor play. Brady Quinn will obviously start and is worth a look in most leagues. - Antonio Bryant hasn't missed a beat with Jeff Garcia under center and the return of Joey Galloway. Bryant has had at least six receptions (sans one game) and two 100-yard games since Garcia returned to the starting lineup, and 14 receptions, 160 yards, and one score since Galloway came back from injury. - Tim Hightower played and played well. Edge didn't get a single down. Expect a similar trend in the upcoming weeks. - The Cowboys really need Tony Romo back. - It's almost hard to laugh at the Raiders offense, who didn't have any positive yards or first downs in the entire first half. I'm glad not many people start Raiders' players. - Speaking of struggling, Fred Taylor falls into that category. He hasn't had a game over 25 yards rushing since Week 3! We don't need podcasts.
