• Russell Wilson: You cannot underestimate what he is capable of.
• Colin Kaepernick: Too much talent not to succeed. Right?
• Sam Bradford: Stafford Lite.
• Carson Palmer: 2005 seems like a million years ago.
Week 3 Lineup Crime: In my never-ending shuffle to put together a great receiving corps (it starts with Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall, so maybe I’m trying harder than I need to), I thought I had a coup when I picked up DeAndre Hopkins off waivers. Once I had him, I was starting him. But that meant benching James Jones or Jordan Cameron (there is no specific tight end spot in this league). I wasn’t going to get burned again by benching Jones, who was on my bench in Week 2 when he caught 11 passes for a career-high 178 yards against the Redskins. I benched Cameron instead. He then went out and caught a career-high three TDs (including one on a fake field goal). So Hopkins is back on my bench this week. Cecil Shorts, too. You should probably start both of them.
Week 4 Lineup Time: The Bills’ defense gave up two long TD receptions to the Jets last week. Start Torrey Smith. Give Dwayne Bowe one more week. Great matchup against the Giants. I think the Jaguars will show some life against the Colts. I expect a good game from Maurice Jones-Drew. He won’t approach 200 yards again, but Antonio Brown should have his way with the Vikings. I’m about to give up on Stevan Ridley, but I like Aaron Dobson against the Falcons. You could do much worse than being “stuck” with Ryan Tannehill as your bye-week starter against the Saints.
