The Home Stretch

Guys who keep you up at night

The Browns RBs

Wow. Many of us (fantasy writer people) knew Harrison was very talented, but anyone that tells you they saw this coming is full of it. Eric Mangini's use of his RBs makes such little sense, but facing Oakland this week one of them should be in line for a nice fantasy day. Could Mangini really put Harrison back on the bench after putting up close to 300 yards on the ground? I don't think so, but really, your guess is as good as mine.

I think Harrison is a good RB2 play this week, but understand that it comes with the risk of Mangini being a Mangidiot. I still think Chris Jennings is a good flex play, and you know how I love me the Joshua Cribbs at WR3 facing awful defenses.

Maurice Morris, Lions RB

Probably the 2nd most surprising happening of this past weekend, Maurice Morris went off against a slightly above average run defense in Arizona. While many owners have run to the waiver wire to grab Morris in hopes of him winning them a championship, proceed with caution. Morris is facing a top-5 run defense on the road in San Francisco, and could end up being a huge dud. Personally, I wouldn't rely on Morris to be anything more than a flex play.

The Texans RBs

Gary Kubiak has been faced with the unfortunate task of deciding between a bunch of crappy RBs lately (kind of like having to choose the skinniest kid at fat camp) and his waffling has hurt fantasy owners much more than his team. I am now out of the reading-Kubiak's-mind sweepstakes; stay away from Texans RBs, far far away.
