In Action Reaction: Week 10 Still In Progress Report

    How about Patriots WR Julian Edelman, scoring his first career TD with a cast on his broken right arm spiking the ball with his left hand, classic.  This kid has a future in the NFL, and what a perfect match for him in New England.

    So Cedric Benson injured his hip, Michael Turner has a high ankle sprain, and Ronnie Brown left his game on crutches. That is three stud RBs possibly out for a game or more. How do you replace them?

    The Mort report tells us that no team is likely to pursue Larry Johnson. One surprise highlight from Week 10 was the play of Justin Forsett, RB for the Seahawks. He came in to replace Julius Jones who ended up in the hospital with bleeding in his lung and ran wild with 149 total yards and a TD. The only problem is that he faces a stout Vikings defense next week. To my eyes Forsett deserves a chance to showcase his talents the rest of the season and replace Jones as starter, but coaches don’t always see things the way fans do. Stay tuned and certainly give Forsett a chance to ride your bench this week just in case.

    If you need a quick fix, Jason Snelling is a heckuva pickup in place of Turner. This guy can do it all and should be able to produce at a high level against the Giants.

    If you own Benson you should pick up Bernard Scott, who will likely get the lion’s share of touches out of the backfield should Benson not be able to go next game. Scott flashed his big play ability by running back a kickoff for a TD yesterday versus the Steelers. While Scott is not a grinder like Benson, he does possess outstanding vision. If he gets enough opportunities he will eventually break off a long run, even if he is less effective pushing the pile.

    Beanie Wells has arrived. The Cardinals really needed someone to step up with intensity and sheer will, and Wells produced with an MVP performance, with a career high 85 yards and 2 TDs. Tim Hightower is still the starting RB, but Wells is about to go off. If you didn’t pick him up a few weeks ago, sorry it is too late.

    That was vintage Randy Moss last night. I swear it seemed like I was watching Daunte Culpepper go long to Moss in purple. Too bad Bill Belichick made a surprisingly horrible coaching decision to gift wrap the win for the Colts, they should have won that game.

    Is Reggie Wayne the least talked about superstar in history? The man gets no press whatsoever, and he has been one of the best in the game for six straight years. His first three years in the league he wasn’t bad either. In the last six though he has caught 500 balls for 7,000 yards and 50 TDs, and growing.

    Packers TE Spencer Havner strikes again! After a two game stretch of catching 3 total TD passes, he was blanked last game. He seemed to have all the makings of a one hit wonder, a converted LB off the practice squad surely can’t be a fantasy factor for long right? Wrong. One catch for two yards and another TD catch. Havner rules. Sort of.
