The NFL gives us three servings of games today that all have Fantasy stars to keep us involved in the action all day.
After watching Chad Henne, yes Chad Henne light up the Houston secondary the way Jay Cutler was suppose to last Sunday it should be all systems go for the Detroit Lions offense. Calvin Johnson has turned from Mega-Drop back to Mega-Tron again. The only player on the Lions I would be wary of starting if you have options is Mikel Leshoure, beacause the Texans have been outstanding against the run. The Texans offensive weapons are all must starters today. Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, and Owen Daniels should have great days in Ford Field. I’m sure it won’t be as easy as a few years back when Chris Johnson strolled through the Lions defense on Turkey day.
The Fox game should be just as exciting especially if the Cowboys start trailing this afternoon. It would be great watching Jerry Jones squrim all day in his box seats. Neither of these defense should scare anyone from not starting any of their players today. Tony Romo and Jason Witten have a special bond that I’m sure the Fox team will run into the ground if he gets a couple of grabs early, but most today’s focus will be RG3 so this should be a fun afternoon in Dallas.
The Patriots are missing their second best player in Rob Gronkowski so it will be interesting to see how the Pats offense evolves this week without him. This could be a Ridley game or Welker game or neither if the Rex Ryan Jets play some defense today. If you are starting any Jets today minus Shonn Greene it’s probably safe to say that the fantasy playoffs are a pipe dream in a couple of weeks.
Enjoy today’s feast on the table and TV and have a great Holiday!
