Found September 18, 2012 on Win My Fantasy League:
Week 3 QB Rankings Cam Newton tops our list this week after he set a career high in rushing yards last week. Superman (SuperCam) looks near impossible to stop when he decides to run it in the red zone and with the emergence of Brandon LaFell, owners can now be confident that Newton has two legit receivers to throw to. I have RGIII ranked high following week two’s matchup with the Rams in which RGIII found the end zone twice with his feet and once through the air. Dual threat quarterbacks rack up the fantasy points and RGIII is getting about 10 carries a game. Peyton Manning is ranked as a QB2 after Atlanta’s banged up secondary gave him fits in the 1st quarter of Monday Night Football, the Texans secondary is even better. Look for other options in single QB leagues. Aaron Rodgers is ranked at number four overall as he faces a very tough Seahawks secondary and also due to the fact that the Packers are destined to run the ball more than Rodgers owners would like.

If you weren’t watching the game, you’ve probably heard by now. Peyton Manning threw three interceptions in the first quarter of last nights game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Monday Night Football: Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons Preview and Prediction

Both the Broncos and Falcons are coming off of double-digit wins in Week 1, albeit against much different teams. The Broncos defeated the Steelers in Peyton Manning’s Denver debut, while the Falcons easily defeated the lowly Chiefs, who are playing like the worst team in football right now. This game will be very evenly matched and will feature two explosive offenses. Peyton Manning...

Falcons pick off Manning three times, hold on to edge Broncos

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons added to what was already one of the biggest questions of the young NFL season: Is Peyton Manning healthy? Atlanta picked off Manning three times in the first half Monday and survived a late Denver rally for a 27-21 win in front of a raucous crowd at the Georgia Dome. Matt Ryan threw two touchdown passes, one to Tony Gonzalez and the other to Roddy...

Manning falters early, Broncos lose to Falcons

Peyton Manning's second game with the Denver Broncos looked nothing like his first. Manning threw interceptions on Denver's first three possessions, and the Broncos could not recover from the poor start in a 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night. In a 3-hour, 27-minute game marred by questionable decisions from replacement officials and long clock stoppages...

Week 2 MNF: What to Expect When the Broncos Face the Falcons

Tonight should prove to be an exciting game when the Broncos roll into Atlanta to take on the Falcons.  Both of these teams had promising starts in week 1 and handled their opponents rather easily. Peyton Manning became the "Manning of Old" around the Broncos third or fourth drive last week, speeding up to the line and running a no huddle offense to perfection.  He has...

Finleys agent questions Rodgers, creates stir

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers tight end Jermichael Finley wants no part of his agent's recent comments regarding NFL MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Finley's agent, Blake Baratz, called Rodgers' leadership into question through a series of posts on his Twitter account. The barrage of tweets actually began with Baratz criticizing Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, writing "...

Vince Young doesn’t understand why he’s treated differently than Peyton Manning

There are two ways of looking at this. Maybe VY just having a bad day and wanted to retweet someone who was making a terrible comparison, but was supporting him or VY really believes this. If it is the former I get it, if it is the latter then you have your answer as to why he isn’t playing currently in the NFL. I know all my haters are happy that I’m not playing football...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Broncos vs. Falcons

 Peyton Manning came out and threw three interceptions in the first quarter. It was his return to Monday Night Football, a bit over hyped for the game he probably came out pressing which led to the interceptions. The Broncos were able to put together a late rally on the legs of Willis McGahee, but were unable to overcome the Falcons who jumped out to the early lead.Peyton Manning...

The Football Fan’s False Dichotomy: Rooting For Laundry

Editor's note: With Peyton Manning playing again tonight, and so far this season looking like himself, this is a fantastically written piece by Josh Boeke about the nature of fanhood. Specifically, Boeke takes on the nature of Colts fans and their now ex-quarterback Peyton Manning. While plenty has been written on the issue, this piece, in my opinion, is one of the most well...

Offense Must Adjust To Officials

Replacement officials are allowing defensive backs a lot more contact The Packers’ high-powered offense has been very ordinary through two games. Blame the competition. The 49ers are one of the best defensive teams in the entire league and the Bears’ disciplined Cover-2 scheme has often given Green Bay fits. Blame the quarterback. Aaron Rodgers has been a little off all summer...

Week 2 – Monday Night Falcons vs. Broncos Pick Against the Spread

Thursday Night Panthers vs. Giants Pick Against the Spread

We escaped Monday Night with a win thanks to our Monday Night teaser special with the Broncos (+10) & Over 44. My initial gut feeling was to be all over the Falcons (-3), but there was lots of chatter of a Peyton Manning outright win, so I figured, there’s no way Peyton will lose by double digits on Monday Night, right? Well, he almost did, but we got the cover with our teaser...

Looking At The YAC Allowed In The Steelers 27-10 Win Over The Jets

Last week I noted the poor job the Pittsburgh Steelers did in their opener against the Denver Broncos at tackling the catch as they allowed 126 total YAC in that game. Now of course it did not help that Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas had 70 of those yards on the 1 yard screen pass from quarterback Peyton Manning that ended in a touchdown 70 yards later, but you just can&...
