1:00 P.M. Game Quick Fantasy Football Hits

Arizona at Green Bay 1:00 p.m.

Ahman Green broke the 100-yard barrier and scored two TDs.  Back-up RB Vernand Morency also rushed for more than 100 yards.

The Cardinals couldn't effectively pass against a Packers defense that allowed Joey Harrington to throw for more than 400 yards.

Is there any reason to think Cardinals' coach Dennis Green deserves to keep his job?  Are there and Vikings fans who aren't laughing at the Cardinals organization?  When they're not laughing at the Dolphins?

Atlanta at Cincinnati 1:00 p.m.

Michael Vick threw 3 TDs and threw for 291 yards.  That is what everyone wants.  Throw in 55 yard rushing and that performance every other/third week would make Vick a Top 3 or 4 QB.

WR Chris Henry may be in prison but for the NFL.  But when he plays, the Bengals passing game is much more dangerous.

Baltimore at New Orleans 1:00 p.m.

Wow!  Jim Fassell was the reason the Ravens offense couldn't score!  

Maybe not, Saints QB Drew Brees threw two INTs for TDs.  Then threw three to his own team and for nearly 400 yards.

Baltimore's problems aren't going away.  

Even Steve McNair's 3 TDs lose luster when one sees he threw for just 159 yards.

Houston at Tennessee 1:00 p.m.

WR Andre Johnson is too good to stop, but his presence has made TE Owen Daniels a decent play with three TDs in the past two games.

WAli Lundy looks like he is as entrenched as the #1 RB in Houston as any back who lost his job to Ron Dayne could be.

Bet the Dolphins wish they hadn't wasted anything on Culpepper and Harrington when they could have had 3-TD Sage Rosenfels and their 2006 2nd round pick plus whatever higher round pick playing Harrington is going to cost next draft.

Tennessee scores 28 points and they don't have a single offensive player who had a good fantasy week.

Jacksonville at Philadelphia 1:00 p.m.

How about that?  Fred Taylor has another 100+ yard game with a TD.  QB Dave Garrard throws for 87 yards and the Jaguars beat Donovan McNabb 13-6.

Brian Westbrook gets 100 yard rushing and receiving last week and lets his fantasy owners down with fewer than 40 yards rushing this week.  But for his 6/68 receiving, he'd be right there with McNabb.

Seattle at Kansas City 1:00 p.m.

Give Seneca Wallace credit.  He did much better than anyone would have thought. Can Shaun Alexander return fast enough?  Mo Morris's days as a quality NFL RB are done.

Larry Johnson had the kind of performance that caused his owners to cheer when they drafted him, and the fantasy owners who saw him in an opponent's line-up to chalk the week up as a likely loss.

Damon Huard wasn't too shabby either with a 300+ yard game.  His back-up QB paydays days are over after this season.

San Francisco at Chicago 1:00 p.m.

The 49ers get a pass facing the Bears following a bye and the almost too-embarassing loss to the worst team in football, the Arizona Cardinals.

Despite just 10 points, Frank Gore's owners are OK with a 100+ yard game, and those who started 49ers #1 WR Antonio Bryant are relieved he caught their one TD pass.

Rex Grossman rebounded nicely with three TD passes, but what happened with Bomb Berrian? 8.2 ypc on five receptions?

We're told Cedric Benson is going to get increased carries and then Thomas Jones rushes for 111 yards and a TD?  This is why hating fantasy football should be more common.

Tampa Bay at N.Y. Giants 1:00 p.m.

Cadillac Williams' recovery towards 2nd round status took a serious hit with 8 rushes for 20 yards.

Tiki Barber failed to score his first TD.  This will help elevate RB Brandon Jacobs' value close to that of the Cowboys' Marion Barber the Third.  But with byes nearly over, who can afford to start Jacobs?
