Week 4 began the bye weeks with both Indianapolis and Pittsburgh taking Sunday off. This week the number of teams on bye will expand to four, which will have fantasy owners searching for viable replacements off of waivers. As you'll read, there are many options to look at this week. QUARTERBACK Brandon Weeden, CLE - After Week 1 it was hard to imagine recommending Weeden at any point this season. However, a lot has changed since Weeden struggled mightily against the Philadelphia pass defense. He had 300-yard passing games in two of his last three games. Being 0-4 means Weeden will be playing from behind a lot and attempt a lot of passes (averaging 44 over his last three games). Greg Little can only improve his hands as the season goes on, and speedster Travis Benjamin has been more involved in the offense.

Jackie Battle listed as the Chargers’ starting running back

With San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews struggling to hold onto the football, Jackie Battle is now listed as the starting running back down in Southern California. I’m sure the Chargers will give Mathews a chance to earn his starting spot back, but right now Battle is getting the job done.

Search for answers starts with turnover battle

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Marty Schottenheimer was in town for the Chiefs' alumni weekend before heading back to his home in Charlotte, N.C., and back into retirement. Perhaps some Chiefs fans should have tackled him before he got to the Kansas City airport. Yes, it's getting that desperate in these parts. The Chiefs not only fell to 1-3 on Sunday with yet another head-scratching...

Why Kneel on the Ball Before Halftime?

Undrafted rookie Brandon Bolden rushed for 137 yards and a TD. Two weeks ago I wrote a post expressing my concerns about the lack of aggression displayed by the Patriots offense.  You’d think they would go out the window after a 52-28 win in which New England became just the second team in NFL history to have a pair of 100 yard rushers and a pair of 100 yard receivers on the...

Ryan Mathews demoted on Chargers depth chart

The San Diego Chargers have moved Jackie Battle ahead of Ryan Mathews on the teams depth chart. The reason according to the Chargers is because Battle started last week. Battle, 29, ran for 39 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries against Kansas City. He also caught 4 passes for 42 yards and a touchdown. Mathews has seen his playing time take a hit due to his penchant of fumbling....

This game was not so much about the Chargers being vastly superior, as it was about how truly terrible the Chiefs are.Heroes: Phillip Rivers, Jackie BattleFor years, Phillip Rivers has led this Chargers team...
