Happy Sunday, Fools. It's a great day for fantasy football (which is true of any day, really; right?). Let's get to it...
I know I shouldn't have to say it, but I will anyway: Sit your Cardinals, Broncos, Chiefs, Chargers, Seahawks and Titans. It's their bye.
We'd like to have more clarity on Daniel Thomas, who is still listed as questionable for Monday night's contest. But it is what it is. My read on the situation is that he will be in the starting lineup, but there's always a risk that his hamstring will flare up during the game. He has a good matchup against the Jets' soft run defense, though. Consider him a decent flex play, with some risk.
Joseph Addai didn't travel with the Colts to Cincinnati. Looks like Delone Carter will be the starter, with Donald Brown filling in between the 20s. Carter is just a so-so flex start today, given the sorry state of Indy's running game.
Cleveland head coach Pat Shurmur said Peyton Hillis will get a heavier workload this week against the Raiders. That should be music to every Hillis owner's ears.
Tim Hightower (shoulder) will be active today, and some are suggesting he may even start. Wouldn't that be classic Shanahan? Just as we're all led to believe that Torain is the man, he pulls his Shanahanigans again. Sorry folks...you're on your own with this one.

Have a great weekend!
