Si.com as always David Sabino provides us with who is up and who is down in the world of fantasy football.
COLD: Michael Vick was not playing with the poise and control we saw last week. Instead Vick looked like he was trying to carry the Eagles and force throws against a very good defense.
Vick was by far not as unimpressive as the Eagles receivers who did get any separation from their defenders.
For example WR DeSean Jackson had one 9 yard reception but finished the night with 8 yards receiving because he went -1 yard on the next reception. As well TE Brent Celek who do make a reception the entire game.
HOT: Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger looked much better this week getting the protection he needed to create plays.
SLEEPER: Eagles RB Ronnie Brown started poorly but later was given several productive carries in a row. Brown is considered a third or fourth option at best but I believe he will be used in a RB by committee with starter LeSean McCoy.
However the Redskins will only be as talented as their QB Rex Grossman. Grossman is not officially the starter but he did make a case last night. As far his fantasy value I would say Rex Grossman is a third option.
Rex played a Steelers defense that was not executing and left WR’s wide open.
Speaking of the Steelers, are they have blocking issues? The Steelers lost veteran LT Max Starks to free agency and it appeared that they had problems picking up the blitz.
Keep an eye on the Steelers O line.
