Good morning, Fools. It's a beautiful day for fantasy football -- heck, any day is a beautiful day for fantasy football, right? -- so let's get to it. Here's what you need to know to make those final lineup decisions...
Rookie QB Mike Glennon is taking the reins in Tampa Bay. The book on Glennon is that he has a big arm and can make every throw in the book, but he struggles with accuracy. We'll see how that translates in his first professional outing. At least he has a soft pass defense to warm up against. Vincent Jackson is dealing with a rib injury but will give it a go today. He's a tough one to sit; but if you're loaded at WR, you should consider it.
We'll finally get to see Le'Veon Bell in the Steelers' backfield, in London of all places. I have him in the flex spot in a couple of leagues. The Vikings are no great shakes against the run. Fellow RB Isaac Redman won't be around to share the load, due to the concussion he sustained in Week 3.
Looks like Ray Rice will play, but he won't get a full complement of carries. You can't afford to bench him, but don't expect greatness.
Both Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski are out, as I tweeted yesterday. Looks like another busy day for Edelman, and more valuable reps for rookie WRs Thompkins and Dobson.
Andre Johnson is going to tough it out and play. How well he does with his aching shin against the stingy Seattle secondary is another story. I'm starting him and hoping for the best.
Don't forget: This may be your last chance to grab Justin Blackmon off the wire before others start fighting for him. (He's only owned in 13% of ESPN fantasy leagues.) I realize it's hard to get excited about any Jags receiver, but it wasn't much different last year and Blackmon had some great outings. This is the last of his four-week suspension.
Okay, that's it for now. I'll be tweeting the inactives in a few minutes. Good luck today, Fools!
