Fantasy Analysis:It is obvious that the contract negotiation will end most likely before the start of the season. Johnson’s representation believes that he is worthy of being the highest paid NFL athlete.
But the Titans are working within a new CBA and will most likely make Johnson one of the highest, but not the highest.
I don’t believe Johnson’s holdout will affect his play for the entire season but he will most likely be sharing carries for several weeks when he returns.
NFL.com Michael FabianoRB by Committee! We hate it! So how do plan your draft around it? Simple you don’t. Instead embrace it and find out which backs will be a inside the 20’s, red zone backs, and who will carry the load buy them self.
SI.com Erick Mack what was revealed in week 1 of the NFL pre-season. Mack directs our attention to Eagles TE Brent Celek, and two RB’s to keep a close eye on; veteran Dallas RB Felix Jones and Rookie Saints RB Mark Ingram.
Have you ever heard the saying ‘defense wins championships’ well that doesn’t apply to fantasy football. On the other hand a great defense can make your season a lot easier when your offense is struggling to produce points.
Although Nnamdi Asomugha signed with the Eagles they are not considered the number one overall defense. However the number one defense is no shocker.
Also yesterday I asked is Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch fantasy gold and it was clear yesterdy he is not! Lynch had 3 attempts for only 8 yards clearly not getting a lot of playing time. Lynch’s involvement is a serious concern to his fantasy potential.
Blaine Gabbert started for the Jaguars last night and made a case to be the starting quarterback however I don’t believe he is fantsay football material. Yet.
But their is one name from the NE Patriots I want you to remember and monitor for the next couple of weeks. RB Stevan Ridley a rookie from LSU had an impressive drive last night and saw a lot of reps! Ridley is a classic deep sleeper and may see some carries in NE if he can keep showing potential.
The Jaguars defense is horrible and will make any QB in the NFL look good.
Plaxico,“It’s one of the reasons I came here. I’ve sat here and watched this team come through the ranks over the past few years with the level they’re playing at and get to the Championship two years in a row and not being able to get over that hump.”
Johnson, ““I think that we’re a lot better football team than we were last year at this point. Guys are working and guys know where we want to be. Every team has that one goal at the beginning of the season and that’s winning the Super Bowl. That’s our goal, we’re gonna work towards it and we’re gonna try and do everything we can to accomplish it.”
Rex Ryan, “I don’t think he(Shaun Ellis) can bring secrets. He can bring mentality. He can talk about the way we are going to approach games against New England and things like that. [Michael Kay: Does that worry you?] No. Everybody knows the kind of mentality we are bringing.”

i have an opportunity to trade malcom floyd for sidney rice in my fantasy league. should i do it? if it was sidney rice from a few years ago i wouldn't be asking this but since hes now on the seahawks i'm not sure if he will put up good numbers as floyd has rivers still throwing to him.
Listen Malcolm Floyd is a great receiver behind two other great receivers. He is Rivers third option and no matter what he does he will never be a go to target unless those two go down again.
Floyd is what I call a comfort pick for those who don’t take risk.
While Sydney Rice had off season surgery, will be in a new offense, and is a risk. But this risk has high reward.
Rice rejoins QB Tavaris Jackson in Seattle and is the number one receiver
But here is what I want you to do. Go back to last season and look at one game. Minn vs Buf on 12/5/10.
Jackson passed two TD’s to Rice for 105 yards. And that was with the Brett Favre sideshow playing out.
I think Seattle brought both Rice and Jackson in for a reason and Rice will be Jackson’s go to receiver not Williams or Tate.
