Found November 04, 2012 on Juan Elway:
PLAYERS: Eli Manning
TEAMS: New York Giants
I’m a head scratcher Juan… Eli Manning is a great NFL QB.  Ice water in his veins that allows him to bring his team back late in games.  This has translated to fantasy stats in recent years and his preseason ranking in the top 10 was an indication of where owners thought he should be getting drafted.  In the first 5 weeks of the season, Eli scored 15 or more fantasy points in 4 out of the first 5 games.  He was looking like the top 10 guy I had ranked this summer.  In the last 4 weeks he has 13 or less in all 4 games, with a combined 8 points in the last 2 games.  They do have the Bengals coming up next, but I am losing confidence in Eli as a QB1 for fantasy.  Freeman, Luck, and Palmer are all guys I would rather have right now.

What the Steelers Must Do to Beat the Giants

1. The Steelers must negate the Giants’ pass rush by establishing the run early. 2. The Steelers must use their wide receivers well against a less-than-stellar Giants’ secondary. 3.

I would have benched me too Juan… Hakeem Nicks came into the season injured and laid an egg against the Cowboys is week one.  He then came back in week 2 with a 10/199/1 performance that had his fantasy owners jumping for joy.  He re-injured his foot and also injured his knee in that game, which caused him to miss 3 games.
