Running backs were the top scoring players this week getting 4 out of the top 5 spots. This has been a crazy fantasy season so far. Who would have thought when the season started that Reggie Wayne, Chris Johnson, Roddy White, Brandon Lloyd, Felix Jones, and many other stars would be riding fantasy benches and a rookie would be leading in fantasy points after half the season?
Injuries are becoming a factor now so make sure you have a good bench to keep competitive in your league. Work the waiver wire and make trades if you have to and never give up, you just have to be in the top 4 to reach the playoffs and then it is any one's game. My son was 1-3 and in last place in our money league last year and then won 10 in a row to reach the Super Bowl so anything can happen in fantasy.

Freeman (thumb) suffered a minor thumb injury in the game against the Bears. Freeman was reported to have a small brace on his right thumb on Wednesday. He never left the game so he should be ok for week 9.
