    Fantasy Game of the Week: SD @ NE 

    After stomping the New York Jets at home last week, you would think that the talk around the NFL would be how the Patriots are clearly the Superbowl favorites this season. Apparently though, due to a little on-field espionage incident, everyone is focused on how bad of cheaters the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick are. Not that they shouldn’t be focused on it, but it takes away from a matchup that should be billed with as high a regard as last week’s Indy/New Orleans game was supposed to be. That’s alright…the players won’t care who’s videotaping who once they’re on the field and we should be in store for a good one at Gillette this weekend.

    Last week Moss showed the fantasy community that he’s back! Brady seemed to enjoy all his new weapons as well, throwing for nearly 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. On the flip side, the Chargers seemed to regress a bit from last season’s offensive firestorm. LT was held in check by a solid Chicago offense and Philip Rivers needed someone else to throw his touchdown passes for him. The Chargers are looking to rebound (even though they still won) this week as well as get some revenge for getting knocked out of the playoffs last season by these same Patriots.

    Remember, Geek Ratings are based on a 0 to 5 scale. So without further ado…

    Proceed With Caution – weak plays for week 2 

    Welcome to the first edition of yet another weekly feature (see what we’re up to here? Hey, on a completely unrelated note, did you know it’s free to subscribe and have our genius bequeathed unto you automagically via RSS or e-mail?). These are the guys who you probably consider to be start-worthy, but I’m telling you that it might be worth taking a look at your bench and seeing if you have another guy you can plug in instead. Essentially, I’m here to introduce doubt and anxiety into your life. You’re welcome.

    Warrick Dunn, RB ATL – Based on everything I know about the Jacksonville defense, getting carved up by Chris Brown on the ground last weekend was an absolute aberration for what was a top-notch rushing D last season. Tackles Stroud and Henderson are humiliated and are going to be looking to prove themselves against Atlanta, and Joey Harrington isn’t going to give them any reason not to focus on stuffing the run. I know some of you Dunn owners are tempted to plug him in there and hope for a Chris Brown-type performance, but don’t do it – the Jags D is going to be out to kill a man, and lil’ Warrick has them drooling.
