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...

Have a great day, and good luck!
