A grizzled graybeard turned back the clock and flashed his old MVP form.
Brett Favre. It's Kurt Warner, and I hope you guessed on him in your draft or waiver wire -- because he's back.Warner tossed three TDs and had a perfect 158.3 passer rating for the third time in his career, tying Peyton Manning for the NFL record.
Granted, his opponent was Miami, but Warner is a must start every week if only for the weapons he has in Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald, who were on the receiving end of 293 of his 361 passing yards.
I hope you hedged your bet on Reggie Bush's renaissance with a player who shows up every week.
With 163 total yards and a TD catch in the opener, the third-year Saints running back teased fantasy owners with the promise he showed as a rookie.
In New Orleans' 29-24 loss to the Redskins, Bush ran for 28 yards and had 63 receiving yards. Yawn.
He perked up late in the third quarter with a 55-yard punt return TD, but those points went to the Saints' defense -- and if you're starting that defense you're either in a deep league or in deep trouble.
Looming next week is a trip to Denver, a tough place to visit. But San Diego just lit up the Broncos for 456 yards and 38 points at Mile High, so it's likely the Saints' offense will kick it up a notch.
The greatest show on turf? That's so 2001.
With three fantasy studs in Marc Bulger, Steven Jackson and Torry Holt, the Rams have managed exactly one touchdown in their first two games
The problem? "Our quarterback can't be a pinata," tight end Randy McMichael said. "We've got to give him time."
The Giants sacked Bulger six times Sunday, after four takedowns in Week 1. It's going to be a long season until the Rams can keep their point man off his back.
