NFL fantasy wire tap

And on a team in need of players to relieve pressure from their two talented tight ends, perhaps Collins has found the right guy; if so, Jones could pay fantasy owners dividends as a bye week fill in.

The Colts have long employed a system which favors two tight end options, and on Sunday Santi may have finally cemented his place opposite of
At a time when most fantasy owners are looking to sell Ryan at a high price, it might not be a bad idea to get in on the bidding. Not only did Ryan look sharp in the pocket in Sunday's win over Green Bay, but the road ahead presents him with a few golden fantasy opportunities. The Falcons face a Bears defense next week that has allowed 223.4 passing yards per game. After a bye, Atlanta faces Philadelphia (seven passing scores allowed), Oakland and New Orleans (244.6).
As a short-term buy option, Stokley could provide respectable totals in the coming weeks. Royal's ankle is a concern that could keep the rookie shelved for a week or longer. While he's away Stokley will be the player to eat up whatever table scraps Marshall and
If it's possible to look not-so-desperate in dumping Rodgers, do so. The Packers quarterback is probable for this coming week's game against Seattle, a defense he should do well against. After that, however, the road for the Green Bay passing offense could get a bit rocky. In Week 7 they face the fourth-ranked Colts, followed by a bye and then a date in Tennessee (ranked seventh).

It's doubtful Lewis has much of an asking price at this point of the season. In four games he's gained just 235 yards with one score. Hopefully Cleveland's bye week has led fantasy owners to forget how cold he is. The next few games for Lewis will be brutal -- the Giants, Redskins, Jaguars and Ravens in the next month. Fantasy owners should try to package him as part of some deal which successfully disguises the desire to unload the 29-year-old back.
