Good morning, Fools. I hope you're having a great weekend and are primed for a winning day of fantasy. We're nearing postseason time, so I trust you're still in the hunt for the big prize.
Let's take a quick scan across the NFL for the news we can use:
Looks like Romo will play today. That's obviously welcome news for Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams owners, though I still would hesitate to start the fragile QB until we see how nimble he is out there.
Two key Bills players -- Fred Jackson and Sammy Watkins -- are game-time decisions, but it now seems likely they will suit up for a tough matchup with KC. I can't wait to see what F-Jax will do once he has the backfield all to himself, but I just don't see that happening today. He's not even expected to get the start. Watkins is a risky play as well, as discussed in Friday's column. I would avoid them both, and Kyle Orton, if possible.
Megatron is back, but facing a stout Dolphins secondary. At 100%, no
defense can stop him; but I'm not sure he's near 100%. Of course you
start him, but don't expect Mega-production.
The Dolphins are planning for Lamar Miller to suit up against the Lions, but he is likely to be limited. Against Detroit's top-rated run defense, that should make your decision easy.
We should get our first look at rookie Charles Sims in the Bucs' backfield
today. Not much, but a glimpse anyway. Doug Martin is expected to be
inactive, leaving the lion's share of the touches in Bobby Rainey's
hands. With Josh McCown back at the controls, figure on a heavier-than-normal rushing workload for Tampa Bay.
Montee Ball will return in a limited, backup capacity, while Ronnie Hillman continues to serve as the lead horse in the Broncos' backfield. Keep Ball on your bench but don't hesitate to keep Hillman rolling.
Already ruled out for Week 10: Nick Foles, Rashad Jennings, Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas.
That's it for now. Heading to Twitter for the inactives and other late-breaking news. Good luck, Fools!
