The Jets have other issues that should concern fantasy players. The running game has started to become an issue again. If the defense continues its spotty play, then the offense will have to struggle from behind in more games, and that isn't good for Favre. We've seen Favre scuffle with bad Packers teams in recent years, and he often becomes reckless when he is working with a deficit. When Favre attempts to play catch-up, he tries to force issues and starts making head-shaking turnovers. Favre could have conceivably ended up with four interceptions on Monday had the Chargers converted on more apparent turnover opportunities.
It's obvious to just about anyone that Favre is still uncomfortable with his new offense. He can't seem to find open receivers often enough on key passing downs, resulting in questionable throws, incompletions and coverage sacks. Favre's numbers may have been good enough to help some fantasy teams last night, but until he can get into more of a rhythm, he is a shaky starter going forward.

The Philadelphia defense punched the Steelers right in the mouth. Then right between the eyes, followed by punch to the gut and while the Steelers were on the ground heaving, the Eagles gave 'em a good swift kick to the ribs. OK, maybe the metaphors are a little excessive, but nine sacks, three turnovers, and a safety is pretty close, isn't it? Moving forward it means that all Steelers become questionable plays against good defenses. The other big news is that
The Baltimore defense is once again a fantasy force, as they continue to make life miserable for opposing teams. The Ravens held the Browns to less than 200 yards of offense and compiled four sacks, three interceptions and a defensive TD. The more intriguing story, however, might be the deployment of the running backs.
