Arizona at Oakland 4:15 p.m.
Disuing. That is all that can be said about the Cardinals' performance. "Disuing"? Yeah, that is "disgusting" minus the g-u-t-s.
Edgerrin James is done as a solid RB.
Somewhat satisfying is the emergence of WR Bryant Johnson. Three catches for 87 yards solidifies him as their #2 WR. Unfortunately, Larry Fitzgerald is due back by Week Ten. With the Cards' bye in Week Nine, fantasy owners have one game to take advantage of Johnson's new-found status.
QB Andrew Walter broke the 200-yard mark, and he did it with an uncomplacent Randy Moss who topped a 100 yards and scored a TD.
With an extra week to prep, the Vikings offense managed three TDs. Amongst these was a 95-yard one by RB Chester Taylor who amassed a 169 yards rushing to vault himself into the #2 spot in overall rushing yards behind Tiki Barber and ahead of Tatum Bell.
WR Troy Williamson caught one ball and can be safely cut in all formats. I have little doubt he'll have one good game, but he isn't worth keeping in hopes you're lucky enough to be starting him when it happens.
Remember, the byes are done after next week so all your top options will be starting every week again.
For those fantasy owners who thought they lucked out landing Mo Morris from the waiver wire following Alexander's injury must be disappointed. He had 49 yard rushing and no TDs. With Hasselback out, I can't see him improving against defenses stacked to dare new QB Seneca Wallace to pass.
WRs Darrell Jackson and Deoin Branch are legitimate fantasy starters. With QB Seneca Wallace subbing, though, do not expect both to maintain their recent production.
However, both are good trade targets now in anticipation of Hasselbeck's return in time for the fantasy play-offs.
