  • Hopefully managers who drafted Pierre Thomas to be one of their starting running backs had a Plan B for at least week one, as he now has a laceration that required stitches in addition to the knee injury that he’s been suffering from for the past few weeks. Even if he plays, it might not be at the level you are expecting from one of your top draft picks. If he doesn’t play, expect a lot more work for backup Mike Bell and Reggie Bush.
  • While the running back committee in Tampa Bay is sure to cause headaches for fantasy team managers all season, the latest update is that Cadillac Williams, not Derrick Ward, has been named the team’s starter. Pretty amazing stuff considering the injury he is returning from, but apparently they will still rotate all three running backs (Earnest Graham being the other) all season, so good guess on who to start if you have one of these guys on your team.
