Well unfortunately Ive got KC V PHI and that means a Square off between some of my core.

KC have the best or one of the best Run D's in the village. And McCoy is my "stud"

So what I've lost out there.

I will know by Friday morning if I have any chance!

My 2 Studs got it done. Both Scoring in the 20's .

I now need to reconsider my "risk" of starting Sidney Rice. He is a curve ball I was going to play if last night went badly.

Stevie Johnson might be a more solid option. My logic was the Jets are solid on pass D.

Ive got my "branch rule" in full motion with No Floyd this week and Cobb in. So IF one of Alex's running backs has a howler I have a great chance of the win.

It's definitely game on in our match!

I have a decision to make regarding Ray Rice. Sproles and Smith will be solid. But Rice...

That looks like an exciting matchup. You've gotta think that Ben's got the edge now after big performances from his two RBs last night, but Alex does have guys like Rodgers and Morris who could well put up big numbers as well. I'll be keeping an interested eye on this matchup!

I'm hoping my own team can get back on track after underperforming in a loss last week. Ironically, it was the performance of the Seahawks defence in shutting down Kaepernick that sunk me, but I'm hopeful that Kaep can bounce back this week. Will need a bit more from my RBs as well - Martin's been okay but I expected more, CJ2K can do a lot better, and MJD (well, the whole Jags team) has been nothing short of a disaster! I've picked up Ridley after Ben discarded him, so maybe he can show something in place of MJD.

The fact is that the Seahawks are the best D in the league.

I am happy i put some settings in place for when I missed the draft. I am a massive fan of McCoy and Charles. They came 3rd and 4th on my power rankings behind AP and Lynch.

My auto-QB selection devastated me to be honest. Because It tagged Cam Newton and as of yet he aint got a game. Unless something happens in training today then Rivers will start for me Sunday.

Rodgers to me is more valuable than Peyton Manning because he throws consitantly and not as many big INT games. So depends what your looking for. In a league based on "wins" Rodgers is stronger.

I had started Ridley for a few weeks, I gave him the benefit of the doubt last week. I could not do it for a 3rd week. As I said on the actual sub-site I will regret this some weeks. As a Pats fan I hope I do!

As a Seahawks fan I completely agree. So physical and aggressive, especially in front of the 12th man. I just didn't imagine that we'd be so successful in completely shutting down Kaepernick in the passing game! Of course I was happy with this, but it did completely wreck my fantasy chances last week.

I need a miracle from my risky selection of Sidney rice.

I picked the wrong QB and Jimmy Graham was immense.

So im lost unless seattle turnover 4 times etc

Hopefully Sidney rice can get a TD and then Jags try and force it for INT's+sacks

Detroit Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson, 32, has suffered a broken left arm in a one-car crash after being distracted by a slice of pizza falling off the front passenger seat, reports AFP.

Police said alcohol was not a factor in the early morning accident in which Burleson's car struck the center wall on the interstate when driving home after watching an NFL game Monday night with friends.

Are any of you guys going along to the Steelers@Vikings game tomorrow at Wembley? I'll be there. :D Should be a good contest between two struggling teams desperate for a win. Cassel starting at QB for Minnesota will be interesting to see, as will Le'veon Bell's debut for a Pittsburgh team that has been completely inept running the football so far. Looking forward to it!
