Sit em, Start Em – Week Two
Alfred Morris – Alfred Morris should run all over the Rams run defense in week two. I expect the Redskins to be protecting a lead in this one and feeding Morris consistently in the second half. The Rams just aren’t good enough to compete and will regret not giving up on Bradford for RGIII if they don’t already. Morris is in line for 25 carries, 100 yards and at least one touchdown.
Adrian Peterson – After doubting the workload he would receive in week one and suggesting to sit him, Purple Jesus went off and reminded us all of the age old adage “don’t sit your studs”. Against the Colts run D, AP should go off All Day, especially if Freeney misses this one.
Stephen Hill – Yes, we are believers in Starscream and think he should be in lineups with three plus flex options. Hill has considerable upside and Sanchez will continue to throw to his monster receiver sitting in single coverage rather than his veteran across the field in double coverage…sorry ...

Morris looks to build on strong week 1 performance
Morris rushed for 96 yards and 2 TDs week 1 against the Saints
The Washington Redskins selected running back Alfred Morris in the 6th round of the 2012 NFL draft out of Florida Atlantic University, and he looks to be the latest “Shanahan” type of runner in a long list of successful running backs in the past.
Other than drafting and recognizing the sleepers of the fake football world, the best way to win in fantasy football is to try to trade for players at their lowest, and trade players when their value is at its peak. Fantasy Football owners are very prone to overreation, and it’s your job to take advantage of that.
Wes Welker (WR, NE)- I have been constantly telling...
Last week we all watched as Robert Griffin III made his regular season debut in one of the most hostile stadiums in the NFL. Not only did he play exceptional but he lead the Redskins to a 40-32 victory over the heavily favored New Orleans Saints.
This week the Redskins face one of the doormats of the NFL for the past few years the St. Louis Rams. With their exceptional play last...
Robert Griffin III stole the headlines following Washington's Week 1 victory over New Orleans, but Pierre Garcon helped the quarterback a great deal. Fortunately, Garcon's solid effort hasn't gone unnoticed. The wide receiver was given the first ever WWE 4th & Pain Championship Belt for helping to lead the Redskins to a win on Sunday. Garcon, who racked up 109 yards...
Every great fantasy football hero needs a sidekick to help him achieve greatness.Most of the time, the legitimate NFL sidekicks are also established NFL stars in their own right. For example, Tom Brady with Randy Moss in 2007, when Brady threw for a record-breaking 50 TDs and Moss hauled in 23 TDs that season. Or, LaDainian Tomlinson and Philip Rivers in 2006, when LT scored 31...
Poor Chris Cooley. In a matter of 30 days his life has become a complete mess. He lost his NFL job in August when the Redskins cut him and now, according to the Washington Post, he’s getting a divorce from his ex-Redskins cheerleader wife, Christy. Once known as the godfather of NFL social media, Cooley is jobless and hasn’t used his Twitter account @thecooleyzone since March...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Washington don’t expect wide receiver Pierre Garcon to play in tomorrow’s game against the Rams after suffering a foot injury in last week’s win over the Saints.
Redskins dont expect to have top WR Pierre Garcon Sun. Was unable to really even try to practice this week. Will workout pregame but…

1. Only the Desperate should Invest in Morris as a Starter
Redskins running back Alfred Morris seems to be generating as much discussion in the fantasy football world as anyone. As a (for now) starting running back for Mike Shanahan coming off a 28-carry, two-touchdown game in Week 1, it's easy to understand why heads are turning.
Morris doesn't have much speed at all...
Washington Redskins (1-0) at St. Louis Rams (0-1)
I had the Rams as one of my underrated teams coming into the season. They improved 6 games in 2010, but, as could have been predictable, regressed 5 games last year. Teams that have a large improvement in win total typically regress the following season and vice versa. They should bounce back this year. Teams that regress 5 games...
After jousting with the potent combination of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, the Rams will be faced with an even more formidable duo - Robert Griffin III and the tremendous trail of media hype he is generating in his wake. However, this may be one of the few occasions where the hype is fully justified. Watching the game replay of last week's Redskins - Saints game...
OK, so Week 1 could have gone a little bit better, but that's why there are 17 of these. The NESN.com NFL picks podcast got off to a rough 7-9 start in Week 1, but that's to be be expected. After all, what can you really expect out of anyone in Week 1? One team that took the podcast -- and a lot of others by surprise -- was the play of Robert Griffin III and the rest of the...
– Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker and co-host Chuck Carroll will award the 4th and Pain Championship Belt to the most deserving Redskins player each week. WWE provided an authentic championship belt to use.
– As we noted yesterday here on the website, Paul Heyman will make several house show appearances over the next few weeks. He is currently scheduled for the...
