He's 40 years old and coming off surgery for a torn biceps. Still, Favre gives what could be a high-powered offense something resembling an answer at the quarterback position. In his only significant action of the season, the future Hall of Famer was 13-of-18 for 142 yards and a touchdown against Houston.
120 rush yards, 1 rush TD, 2 rec, 25 rec yards The consensus No. 1 fantasy pick showed glimpses of his tantalizing potential Monday against the Texas, carrying 11 times for 117 yards and a touchdown -- a 75-yard explosion on the first play from scrimmage.
As the Minnesota offense goes, so goes Rice. If Favre rejuvenates the Vikings, the 6-foot-4 wideout should be one of the prime beneficiaries. His size makes him an attractive target for Favre in the red zone.
Longwell may not get an above-average number of opportunities in an offense predicated on big plays in the passing (Favre) and running (Peterson) games. But he's a veteran dome kicker who's had a lot of success in this league.
We're only guessing Quinn gets the start over Derek Anderson on Sunday, because first-year Browns coach Eric Mangini has yet to reveal his Week 1 starter, insisting it's more difficult for an opponent to prepare for two quarterbacks instead of one. Chances are you can do better here even in the deepest leagues.
The 30-year-old has a lot of mileage on those legs -- Lewis was the youngest player to participate in a Super Bowl for the Ravens way back in January 2001 -- but he's the clear-cut No. 1 and should get the majority of the carries as long as he remains healthy.
An ankle injury sidelined the No. 2 running back for the last preseason game. He's listed as questionable for Week 1 but probably wouldn't have seen a lot of time anyway. Keep him on your radar in case Lewis breaks down.
With four catches for 85 yards and a touchdown in the last two preseason games, Edwards is showing signs of returning to Pro Bowl form. But its understandable why fantasy owners might hesitate after the Michigan alum dropped 16 passes in 2008.
