New Orleans Saints
The Carolina Panthers may be primed for an upset over the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football this evening. The Giants will enter play without Hakeem Nicks and Ahmad Bradshaw on offense, and they are coming off of a very difficult win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just four days ago.
I am not saying that the Panthers had a cake walk over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but it was not as taxing as the game for the Giants. They escaped relatively healthy, at least in comparison to New York. Carolina will likely be without running back Jonathan Stewart, and that may make some fantasy football owners salivate at the possibility of DeAngelo Williams getting the bulk of the carries.
I am here to remind you that even if Stewart does not suit up tonight, which seems it will be the case, that fantasy owners need not get overly excited about Williams.
Like the saying goes, those who do not know or remember history are doomed to repeat it.
If you were like me and made the huge mistake...

When the Carolina Panthers used the first overall pick of the 2o11 draft on Cam Newton, they expected him to perform immediately. Newton set the stats board on fire making fantasy owners ecstatic as he cruised to Rookie of the Year honors. The Panthers however; were hampered by the worst defensive line in the league and only managed to win 6, missing the playoffs for the third year...
Just as Players View posted our list regarding Cam Newton, an explosion came down the pipeline regarding wide receiver Steve Smith’s current feelings on Newton that seems to backup our point.

Charlotte, NC. Week 2 in the NFL was a big one for a lot of teams, as half the league was dealing with the potential of starting the season at 0-2. This was the exact situation for the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants, as both lost their week 1 contests. Carolina bounced back with a nice home win over New Orleans, and looked very much like the team everyone saw for much...
Charlotte, NC – Just when the Carolina Panthers had a great opportunity to make a statement – on prime time – they flopped. Just when they had a chance to come out and show the defending Super Bowl champs what they were made of, they flopped. The New York Giants crushed the Panthers 36 – 7 before 73,951 at Bank of America Stadium in a game that was not that close.
There was a scary moment towards the end of the New York Giants-Carolina Panthers game when Cam Newton's pass sailed over tight end Greg Olsen's head while he was being chased down by defensive back Antrelle Rolle.
Both players rumbled into the sidelines taking down a couple of cameramen, respectively.
Rolle tried jumping over a sitting photographer and caught his left...
I see you reaching for the “drop” button, I am begging you don’t drop Carolina Panthers WR Brandon LaFell. I know he was one of the most talked about waiver wire pickups by all the fantasy “experts”, and you bought into starting him this week, expecting a big game. I feel your pain, I started LaFell in every league I could get him in, and I was hoping for some production...
Manning and Newton should put up big numbers tonight.
New York Giants (1-1) @ Carolina Panthers (1-1)
Last week, Eli Manning and the Giants were down 27-13 in the third quarter. What did Manning do? Nothing much, just led his team on five scoring drives including two touchdown passes in the fourth quarter. He finished with 510 yards, 3 TDs, and 3 INTs. Not too shabby. Cam...

Running back Jonathan Stewart is inactive for Thursday Night Football vs. the Giants.
Stewart is still being hindered by his toe and ankle ailments, and DeAngelo Williams gets a boost in fantasy value in his absence, and is ideally suited for the FLEX spot in lineups.
