At the moment, 2013 is on pace to wind up as only the second NFL season in the past 20 years without a single 1,500-yard rusher.
Just like the Packers' offense, fantasy owners with Rodgers on their team are going to experience a dip in production. Even with Rodgers having a "mediocre" year, it's unlikely the backup can fill the void. If you're lucky enough to have Tony Romo or Matthew Stafford, good drafting. If not, good luck trying to grab Case Keenum or Nick Foles off the waiver wire.
When Brandon Meriweather returns to the field on Sunday after being reinstated from a suspension, how he plays – and more accurately, the way he plays – will be scrutinized by players, coaches, commentators and everyone else interested in the evolution of football.
Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather's two-game suspension from the NFL for multiple helmet-to-helmet hits was cut in half Wednesday on appeal.
That scenario is far from ideal with Peyton Manning and the pass-happy Denver Broncos on tap. But the Redskins will have to deal with it after the NFL on Monday handed Meriweather a two-game suspension for repeated violations of the league's ban on hits to the head of defenseless players.
Washington Redskins free safety Brandon Meriweather's dangerous habit of leading with his helmet will cost him two games, the latest sanction from a league determined to make the game safer by discouraging blows to the head.
New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against the AFC East end.
Value is the key to winning at fantasy football. Entering Week 7, let's talk about fantasy football's best values. Moving forward, keep the following players in your lineup or do what you can to acquire them:
Eddie Lacy rushed for 120 yards to fuel the Packers' first road win of the season. Green Bay (3-2) took a 16-3 lead into the fourth quarter and was up 19-10 with 4 minutes left, but the Ravens (3-3) kept coming back.
Tampa Bay can't close out games, losing twice already on last-second field goals.
The numbers are not pretty anywhere on the defensive side of the field for the Washington Redskins. That has been a consistent theme through the first two weeks of the season.
Football will never be safe. Science proved that.
The Redskins own the NFL's second-oldest 53-man roster, but made mistakes you'd expect from a group not stocked with veterans. Two forgettable games into the season, they aren't a disciplined football team.
The Washington strong safety started his first regular season game in nearly 10 months Sunday and had to leave in the second quarter against the Green Bay Packers with a concussion.
The Redskins went to Lambeau Field holding fast to the image of the team they were at the end of last season, when they rallied to win the NFC East and reach the playoffs. That notion was shredded by the Green Bay Packers in a humbling 38-20 loss on Sunday afternoon.
He said in the days following the hits that it would be difficult to change his tackling style considering he was taught to play with aggression.
