Every week, I will share my list of the top 10 fantasy football happenings from the week before. These can be used for trade fodder, players to target, etc.
1) Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew went down with an injury and handcuff Rashad Jennings stepped in and looked good. Pick him up if possible.
2) The Baltimore Ravens fell behind early and got blown out. This meant Ray Rice didn't see significant touches and Joe Flacco played poorly on the road, again
3) The Pittsburgh Steelers and Big Ben Roethlisberger continue to use the screen pass as their running game, even though Jonathan Dwyer and Chris Rainey both had nice moments.
4) Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb has really stepped up his game with Greg Jennings out; he gets added perks in leagues that grant points for return yards.
5) Tennessee Titans RB Chris Johnson had a huge day. A very intriguing question to ponder for his owners would be to sell high or ride it out. Personally, I would sell high, but then again I wouldn't have drafted him. Kudos to owners whom may have bought low and can now flip him.
6) Buffalo Bills running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller both performed well but it appears that the time share will continue, thus limiting both RBs' value.
7) Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson and QB Josh Freeman really appeared to be on the same page Sunday and look to be a strong duo moving forward.
8) Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson appeared to be slowed by a lingering injury, thus Montario Hardesty stepped in and performed admirably.
9) I would be concerned if I owned Andy Dalton and/or A.J. Green and had to face the Steelers in week 16. Dick LeBeau seemed to come up with a scheme to virtually eliminate that viable connection, just as many are doing to the Detroit Stafford-Megatron duo.
10) Arizona Cardinals RB LaRod Stephens-Howling looked good filling in for injured RBs Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams. Why William Powell only got 4 carries is anyone's guess. However, I doubt that the pint-sized LaRod can be consistent for the long haul.
