This might be an inappropriate time to say this, but in fantasy football, you've got to kick a man when he's down. The Titans are down. Far, far down. And if you've got Colts on your team this weekend, it's time to saddle them up and ride them. All of them. That's where we'll start.
1. Say what you want about what an idiot Albert Haynesworth is, but know this: He will be missed, badly, in the middle of that Titans line. "We couldn't block him,'' one coach on a team that played Tennessee in September told me this week. "That might not seem like a big loss because of what he did, but from a football standpoint, Tennessee's screwed without him.''
In other words, play Joseph Addai and Dominic Rhodes when Indy takes on Tennessee this week. Of course you'd play the big three (Manning, Harrison, Wayne), but you might also want to consider suiting up Brandon Stokley, who looked frisky in practice Thursday and is trying to return this week from a high ankle sprain. Indy could roll up 500 yards this week.
2. Something about Eli Manning appeals to me this weekend, particularly without excellent cover corner Shawn Springs in the Redskins' lineup. Well, it's not certain he won't be, but groin and abdomen injuries make him doubtful, and even if he plays, he won't be himself. I think Manning could end up in a shootout with Mark Brunell, and I wish I could revisit my pick of Washington 27, Giants 16. I'd still pick Washington, but maybe 30-24.
3. Pick up Bruce Gradkowski, and do it now. You won't be able to get the Tampa quarterback after Sunday, and he might be a nice little trading chip for you after he throws for 272 yards at New Orleans on Sunday.
