You know what’s worse than byes? Injuries. And we got a bunch of them against this week with owners losing Julio Jones and Owen Daniels. Jones obviously hurts the most as a highly drafted WR1. There are a few options to replace him, but…it just won’t be the same, you know? Matchups gets things started…… Continue reading Week 6 Starts and Sits: Anything nice to say about Chris Johnson?
Forgive me for the punny title. I didn’t get a lot of sleep this weekend, and I think I’m still operating on Oakland time. But that said…don’t you want four time slots of NFL football EVERY Sunday?
