Week 4 updates

As expected, Willie Parker won't go today due to a turf toe injury. Though Rashard Mendenhall will get the start, I think Mewelde Moore (left) is the better play against the Chargers. The Steelers simply can't afford to lose this game -- lest they fall to 1-3 -- and Mendenhall has been a huge disappointment (he was even benched in Week 3 after a poor week of practice). Moore, on the other hand, has produced every time he's been given the chance. He's also an excellent receiver. I could be wrong about this (it wouldn't be the first time), but I am putting Moore in my starting lineup in one league today.

In a somewhat shocking development, Browns rookie RB James Davis was placed on IR yesterday. Who knew his shoulder injury was so serious? That makes Jerome Harrison the back to own in Cleveland, especially this week against Cinci with Jamal Lewis likely sitting the game out as well. Wow...

Make sure to follow my tweets ( this morning for game-day inactives/actives and other updates.

Have a great day, and good luck!


  1. Ladd,

    Based on your advice in September, I picked up Percy as a free agent and recently picked Pierre Garcon as well. I know that you are very high on Percy (as I'm I)....but I'm a little fuzzy on who to play this weekend
    (can't play both). I really like that Percy is playing on Monday night and in Minnesota. I also like that Pierre is playing Stinkhawks at home.

    Could you please help me in making this 'tough' decision?

    Thanks. Steve in Plano

  2. Sorry for the late reply, but I hope you started Percy.

  3. How about Mewelde showing off his arm!!!! Not bad for a last-minute pickup! Ladd, you sir, are a genius!
