Answers for Oakland/Denver & Chicago/Arizona

Oakland at Denver 8:15 p.m.

Any fantasy team forced into starting either QB Andrew Walter, RB Justin Fargas or WR Ronald Curry likely ended-up on the losing end of their match-ups this weekend.

Walter bettered his previous week's yardage, 189 vs 164, but he didn't throw a TD while tossing an INT for just six points.

Justin Fargas was injured early in the game and finished with 11 yards.  Hopefully, you got one point from him.

Ronald Curry?  No receptions!

The Broncos Defense held yet another opponent without a TD.  If the Broncos threw the ball well, they'd be Super Bowl favorites in the AFC.

QB Jake Plummer defied the odds and stayed below 200 yards passing for 4th time in 5 games.  Without a TD pass, Andrew Walter was the higher-scoring QB in the contest.

Rumblings of disgruntlement are coming from WRs Javon Walker and Rod Smith - along with their fantasy owners.

Tatum Bell scored his 1st TD to go along with his NFL 7th-highest rushing total.  Hopefully, he picks-up the scoring pace.  3.2 TDs in a season isn't very good.


Chicago at Arizona 8:30 p.m.

The Cardinals' defense was inspired by its national debut on Monday Night Football in its newest digs, Some Corporate Sponsor Stadium.

QB Rex Grossman made every other QB in the league look good, including Jake Plummer.  GRex threw four INTs and only amassed 148 yards.

The Bear's running game was completely shutdown.  Thomas Jones had only 39 yards on eleven rushes and CBen carried once for four yards.

Yet, the Bears managed to win 24-23 on two fumble recoveries for TDs, and punt return TD, and a missed 40-yard FG by last season's leading scorer, Neil Rackers.

On the positive side, QB Matt Leinart looks like nine other teams made a mistake by passing up the chance to take him.  He threw two TDs in the 1st quarter to set the tone and finished with 232 yards on 24 completions.

Edgerrin James is officially done.  He had 36 rushes for 55 yards!?!?!?!  How do yo...nevermind.  Wow.

WR Anquan Boldin caught 12 balls and is a Top Five WR until Larry Fitz returns.  His complement should be WR Bryant Johnson, who caught a TD, but Troy Walters caught four passes to Bryant's two.

For those watching the TE situation, Leonard Pope caught one ball and Adam Bergan caught none and went wee, wee, wee all the way!
