After suffering through the first two weeks owners of Chiefs back Larry Johnson are finally getting some pay back. After a slow start in the first quarter, he has been steadily getting the ball and in the third quarter Johnson had 90 yards and a rushing TD. I guess a little complaining helps in NFL.
The afternoon games have actually been brutal overall in fantasy land with elite players and elite teams struggling.
But another bright spot to go along with Larry Johnson is Falcons back Michael Turner who continues to amass double-digit returns. In the middle of the third quarter he has 85 yards rushing but a whopping three rushing touchdowns to go with the yardage for 26 points. Turner is a must start every week no matter what defense he goes up against.
The only other player to put up some decent numbers is Bears back Matt Forte. In the third quarter he had 50 yards rushing, 44 yards receiving and a receiving TD.
Another point producer has been the Vikings D/Special teams today, a defense/special teams that was rated No. 1 in the preseason. The Vikes defense/special teams has a defensive TD, two fumble recoveries and two sacks.

As far as the later games go, be advised the Colts offensive line continues to be banged up. Even if starting center Jeff Saturday plays it won't be easy for the Colts on offense to get into a rhythm. Marvin Harrison, Dallas Clark and Joseph Addai are players who could be hurt by the banged up O-line.

Be advised injured Browns receiver Braylon Edwards is iffy going up against a stiff Ravens "D" and Packers back Ryan Grant is still not 100 percent with a nagging hamstring injury.

Good luck the rest of the way!
