Have you heard the news? Dewey Cox died. Also, Drew Brees is ridiculous. He threw for 369 yards and 4 TDs with no INTs against the Giants' vaunted D. He may be the best fantasy QB in the league, and should start every week, regardless of the opponent.
Thomas had 15 carries for 72 yards, splitting carries down the middle with Mike Bell. It looks like a two-headed RB monster in NOLA. Despite sharing carries, the potency of this offense makes it a promising situation for owners. Consider both guys low-end No. 2 options, maybe high-end No. 3 against the Dolphins stingy third-ranked run defense.
Bush gained 17 yards on 6 carries against the GMen. He had 7 touches and 9 the week before. His touches are too erratic at this point to consider him a viable fantasy threat. If you're in a bind, he could be a flex option or No. 3 RB.
He is the top receiving threat in the best passing offense in the NFL. He had 8 catches for 166 yards against the Giants. He is a No. 1 WR and merits a start every week. The only reason he's not at the very top of the league is because Drew Brees spreads the ball out so effectively.
Lance Moore had 928 yards and 10 TD last year, so much was expected from the fourth-year WR from Toledo. He was a huge disappointment until last week, when he caught 6 balls (targeted 7 times) for 78 yards. Could that have been the performance that catapults him back to where he was last year? Monitor this closely.
While he's no longer an elite option, Shockey is a cagey, skilled vet with an all-world QB. He had 4 catches for 37 yards last week with a TD. He has 22 catches on the year, good for 12th among TEs. That's around where he is. Twelfth in the league with good red zone potential.
Williams' unit is aggressive and will get after Henne. They're tied for first in the NFL in picks and second in defensive TDs. They score a lot of points and, as they're fifth in the league against the run, remain a good start against a Dolphins offense that relies so much on the running game.
Henne is much the same as his predecessor, ‘Hanging' Chad Pennington. He's an efficient game manager that's going to be relied on to not screw up and let his RBs control the time of possession. He looked great on MNF against the Jets, going 20-for-26 with 241 yards, 2 TD and 0 INT. Seems like he'd be a decent flex option, though may have some trouble in the face of Gregg Williams' blitz schemes.
Eighth in the NFL in rushing and third in TDs (with 6), Brown is coming off the bye week with some real momentum. Even though he splits carries with Ricky Williams, the Dolphins' run game (and its many looks) is nasty, and Brown is a true No. 1 option.
Ricky has proved himself effective and very willing to share the rock. He rushed the ball 11 times for 68 yards and led the Dolphins in receiving with three catches for 70 yards on Monday night. It seems he's become a very dangerous receiving threat too. He's a lower-end No. 2 RB.
Ah, where to be-Ginn? He had 11 catches in Week 2 and has 5 total on the season besides that. You don't want to be starting him now. He's very erratic, in the speediest kind of way: He caught a 53-yard bomb in stride for a TD against the Jets. Starting him would be a real risk.
Bess had 3 catches for 18 yards against the Jets before the bye. This should remind you of fundamental truths in this world. Never get involved in a land war in Asia. Don't go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line. Don't start a Dolphins wideout.
His 4 catches (for 38 yards) on MNF equaled the 4 catches he had on the year. He did get into the end zone and has had success in the red zone before. He's a recommendation to watch for another week with Henne before you even contemplate putting him in.
