Answers to DET/STL & CLE/OAK

Detroit at St. Louis 4:05 p.m.

QB Jon Kitna had another quality week with 280 yards and two TDs.  Against non-elite defenses, he is a good start.  We will see how well he has done leading up to the next Bears game before claiming otherwise.

While the Lions did not score 40, they did put 34 on the board, and now I'll stop picking on WR Roy Williams - especially when he goes for 139 yards.  How about a a TD though?

2nd WR Mike Furrey caught two TD passses and should be grabbed.

What ails an offense can be cured by the Packers.  The Rams came in with only two TDs on the season, and left with six.

QB Mark Bulger had the game his owners expected to receive when they drafted him -328 yards and three TDs.  His receivers, Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce each had 100+ yards and a TD.  Oh the glory days!

And K Jeff Wilkins kicked four field goals to make his owners happy, too!

Cleveland at Oakland 4:15 p.m.

Whereas Green Bay can cure a team's scoring woes, the Raiders appear to have the curative powers for a team's rushing ones.  RB Reuben Droughns had 100 yards rushing on 25 attempts after "amassing" on 59 yard in his previous two games - on 25 attempts!

2nd year QB Chalie Frye threw three TDs and has cemented his spot as a decent bye week QB play for fantasy teams along with 2nd year receiver Braylon Edwards who caught six bals.

Half of the top fantasy picks on the Raiders got better.  RB Lamont Jordan ran for 128 yards on 20 carries with a TD.  Hopefully, his owners had the patience to keep him active.

The other half?  WR Randy Moss had a TD reception, and that was it -  One reception for five yards and a TD.  The six points is the lowest a WR can have when scoring a TD.

Without Randy Moss, the passing game will continue to be bad, and Moss can no longer be started.
