What a wild start to NFL on Sunday!

Patriots nation is cringing with QB Tom Brady out of the game with a knee injury and Eagles QB Donovan McNabbis lighting it up with nearly 300 yards passing int he third quarter and a pair of TD passes.
And if you heeded my earlier suggestion of picking up Eagles WR DeSean Jackson it paid off since he caught of the TD passes from McNabb.

Brett Favre is having a decent day for the Jets with a pair of TD passes so far and unleashed Falcons back Michael Turner, who spent years in the shadow of LaDainian Tomlinson, is running wild with nearly 150 yards rushing and a pair of TDs.

And what about that fast Willie Parker of the Steelers with three TDs so far today.

And while the above mentioned players are rockin' elite players like Eagles back Brian Westbrook, Rams back Steven Jackson and Bengals QB Carson Palmer are struggling to get some decent numbers.

Andy by the way, with Chiefs starting QB Brodie Croyle out with a shoulder injury, the value of TE Tony Gonzalez and WR Dwayne Bowe rises with QB Damon Huard in the game.

This looks like it will be one of those years where some wild and wacky things are in store for us each weekend.

Earlier today in the game day planner......

I love the smell of pigskin on a Sunday afternoon.....

The first full day of NFL games this season and it should be a wild one.
Couple items to note for last minute uodates.
If you're looking for a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver, take a one-week shot with Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson. Both Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown are out and Jackson is starting. This also raises the importance of tight end L.J. Smith who should get a few extra passes his way today.

A friend of mine who covers the Dolphins also advises that you don't lean to heavily on Ricky Williams today. Ronnie Brown is expected to get the bulk of the carries...

Also....Browns running back Jamal Lewis looks like a go today but check (hot off the wire report) or (fantasy blog link) for an update on his status.
Also....Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem, who was expected to be a decent complement to Marques Colston is a scratch.

We'll update the early afternoon action around 2 p.m. today.....Good luck with your team(s)!!!
