Philip RIvers, please escort yourself to the bench

You, sir, will are now benched INDEFINITELY. Your 5 turnovers in the second half caused me to lose my matchup by 1 point. While I understand that you are more than just a fantasy asset, you are a person, and therefore I don't want to be too hateful here, I must say that I do hate your telegraphed sidearm passes, your inability to step up in the pocket to avoid a rush, and the consecutive choke-jobs you've delivered in the past two weeks.  I'm guessing your backup quarterback, like mine (Ponder) is a better bet than Philip "Powder Blue Sucksplosion" Rivers. Either way, Philip gets a bye (a well-timed timeout) next week, so your backups coming in regardless. I say stick with that backup beyond next week. Let Philip know you're serious.  Benched benched bench bench bench.

New halfback in St. Lou!

Stephen Jackson has a lot of carries under his belt, 2,227 to be exact. Taking that into mind, it's no surprise that his average YPC is down almost a full yard from last year. This season, his longest rush is 23 yards. Enter Daryl Richardson. Richardson is owned in just over 4% of leagues, yet this past Sunday he spit carries with Jackson, turning 11 carries into 76 yards. Pick him up. He could very well be a midseason sleeper.
