QBs battle, fantasy owners win!


Wow, what a Monday Night Football game that was! Can I stick Darren Sharper in at WR from here on out? Oh, then there was the return of Brett Favre to Green Bay in which he showed them he still has some mojo left. Then there was the game in which two RBs combined for 405 yards and four scores.

Without further delay, let's get on with the winners and losers of this weekend.


##### Losers

Joe Flacco:I'm not a fan of Flacco, and this weekend showed why as he threw for just 175 yards and a score while taking two sacks. He will have more games like this than he will where he dominates, so best you deal him before the deadline hits if you can.

Alex Smith: I got tons of emails about Smith and wanting to know if he was the real deal or not. I suggested you stay away because I had a feeling he would be the 198 yard, one TD, one INT, and four sacks kind of QB he was on Sunday.

Ronnie Brown: Brown has been one of the better fantasy backs this season, but on Sunday he managed to put up just 27 yards on 11 carries and didn't score a single TD. This will be the off game that every player has, so don't get too worried.

Steve Slaton: Well, he lost another fumble, he gained just one yard rushing and 10 yards receiving, and then lost his starting job. I don't care what the coach says, Slaton's days as a starter should be over.

Mike Sims-Walker: The WR is only as good as the QB, and David Garrard had an off game. Sims-Walker finished with just two catches for nine yards, and fantasy owners are left scratching their heads and wondering what happened to the secondary Tennessee has had all season long.

Brandon Marshall:People were getting all excited over Marshall and getting mad at me because I was holding back my enthusiasm. I held back because I knew he was bound to have another game where he caught just four passes for 24 yards and no scores.

Jason Witten:My, how the mighty have fallen. Witten managed a whopping four catches for 36 yards and no scores this weekend. Miles Austin is the new cream of the Dallas crop and Witten is quickly becoming a sell candidate based on name value. I got offered Witten for my Vernon Davis and laughed him into a rejected email.

Denver Broncos defense: The Broncos defense recorded two sacks, but failed to get a single interception and gave up 30 points to the Ravens. Their terrible showing was enough to rank them in the bottom two for fantasy defenses this weekend.

All right, I didn't want to talk about this but I will… my picks. I missed on David Garrard, Kevin Smith, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, and Steve Slaton, but I got all the others correct. That means I was still able to finish the weekend 12-16, good enough for a 75% rating again this week. Trust me people, this was still about 25% better than the other sites.
