3. Jacob Tamme is this season's TE sleeper.
Last night he caught 5 passes for 43 yards and a touchdown,good,but hardly overwhelming. This is just the beginning, however. Peyton loves tight ends. I'll say it again. Peyton loves tight ends.
We must act now! Tamme is owned in 94.5% of ESPN FFL leagues. If you're playing in a league in that 5.5%, congratulations, you're going to win your league, because your league is dumb and you're smart enough to be reading this questionable analysis! If you're in the 94.5%, make a trade now before Tamme puts up 3 TDs against the Falcons on Monday Night next week. You're about to get the Dallas Clark, Mile High edition.
4. The Patriots have a running game. Act accordingly.
Stevan Ridley ran for 125 yards caught two passes for 27, and scored a touchdown. It's generally accepted that if you're going to start a Patriots' running back, Bill Belichick is going to gameplan around your fantasy aspirations and you will be disappointed. That's why it's time to stay one step ahead of the Belichick and start Danny Woodhead next week
. Who's the evil mastermind now? If this move backfires, and it will
, atleast you dared to be daring. If this move works, and it might
, you're an early candidate for GM of the year.
5. Trade Cam Cam, while he's still considered elite! Year 2 got off to a rocky start for Newton, who put up just 12standard-league fantasy points against the Bucs. More alarming is that Newton rushed just 5 times for 4 yards. What's that say? He's determined become a pocket passer, and rob you of those oh so sexy 20-yard scrambles. While Cam selfishly pursues a more sustainable future in the NFL (see: Michael Vick's flack jacket), it's your fantasy team that feels the hurt. It's time to trade him for a skill position (Adrian Peterson? Andre Johnson?) while he's still considered first round talent. The prudent man would then start Mark Sanchez in his place. You're welcome.

ps. Abandon all hope that Michael Vick will play more than 10 games this season.
