FF Week 1 In The Books

HIGH_HEAT2[300x250]

 

After the first week many questions are answered but just as many remain. Here’s what we know and what we don’t followed by my recipe for my homemade margarita mix and a couple of ways to prepare the cocktail.

 

What we know…

 

1. Adrian Peterson is just amazing. He didn’t miss a beat in his first game after a horrible injury. His is the Vikings offense and they will continue to ride him until his legs fall off. Just remember that who he was playing.

2. The same can be said about Matt Forte. It seemed like he was on the field for every play.  (he was in on 55 out of 77 snaps). The Bears offense is better this year, and it could be the year they put it all together with the cake schedule they have.

3. Flacco likes the new offensive scheme. He seemed very comfortable and looks like he could be in for a nice season. Ray Rice does too. If he wasn’t picked in the top 3 in your league that was a travesty.

4. Julio Jones is the real deal. Another beneficiary of an up tempo offense, he and Matty Ice are on the same page and will be all year.

5. CJ2K needs a new nickname. He had the worst game of his career and the players are already turning on their O/C. I feel bad for you if you wasted a high draft pick on him.

6. Peyton Manning is back. The Steelers threw a ton at him, and it didn’t phase him a bit. His no-huddle offense looked great and if he can survive the tough division match-ups, the Broncos could be a factor come January.

7. It’s important to draft toby’s (my new term for handcuffs). It didn’t take long for Fred Jackson to get hurt letting his backup C.J. Spiller have a great game and the chance for atleast four more.

 

What we don’t know…

 

1. Mark Sanchez is for real. He had a great game versus a pretty good defense but average corners. But what he did was to  shut down the grumblings in NY that started because of less than stellar preseason.

2. Bobby Tre is the league’s best QB. He had a great game sure, but where was the defense? It is very possible the ‘skins go 6-1 in their first 7 games and he doesn’t get challenged before going into Pittsburgh week 8, making everyone talk about him walking on water.

3. Randy Moss will be a fantasy factor. Sure he caught a TD, but don’t count on him as a weekly starter, he seems to be more of a possession receiver. Not good for fantasy purposes.

4. Randal Cobb will score 15 points a game. I am a biased here and hope I am wrong, but I don’t think he is going to get as many targets as he did on Sunday. Plus his return TD should have been called back because of not 1 but 2 illegal blocks.

5. Alfred Morris will be the best RB in Washington. Mike Shanahan has said that he is the #1 back, for now. He sure looked good in the preseason and his first game when it counted. If you must have a Redskin RB, he is the one, for now.

6. Kevin Ogletree is the next Laurent Robinson. He must have been the most picked up player in world last week. Sure, he had a great game, and his position in the offense is a good one, but remember, he was playing against a banged up secondary.

7. Jamaal Charles won’t loose carries to Peyton Hillis. He looked fine in his first game game from his injury. Peyton didn’t impress or eat into his carries too much. One game does a trend not make, or something like that. They didn’t sign Hillis to sit on the bench, that you can count on.
