We finally got to see the preseason debut of Beanie Wells against the Packers as he ran for 2 touchdowns. I’ll be impressed once he shows he can stay healthy. This performance confirmed what we already knew: Beanie is big and fast. I want to see some toughness and then I’ll consider moving him up my draft board. I still don’t recommend taking Wells at his current ADP of 75th overall.
Speaking of a player who’s ADP is too high is Michael Crabtree. He is still being drafted ahead of Josh Morgan and Isaac Bruce in many leagues which is baffling. Check out Andrew Garda’s Twitter feed for more on this, he finds it even more absurd than I do. I will have to consider dropping Crabtree in my Dynasty/Keeper league rankings if he doesn’t end his holdout soon.
I can’t seem to go a week without mentioning Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez. I was impressed with his performance against the Giants as he bounced back nicely from his tough matchup with Baltimore the week prior. Sanchez may be a viable fantasy option for Aaron Rodgers owners this year (Week 5 at the Miami Dolphins) as a bye week replacement.
Gartrell Johnson appears to have locked down a roster spot for the Chargers at the expense of Michael Bennett. Watch out for this guy in the future. Think Michael Turner.
Speedster Mike Goodson might just have an important role in 2009 with the injury concerns to Jonathan Stewart. Jeff Haseley of Footballguys.com has been monitoring Goodson’s situation very closely. Drop him a line on Twitter for any fantasy football advice or anything involving the Carolina Panthers.
Bernard Scott quietly has wrapped up the backup running back spot to Cedric Benson. If you are looking for the 2009 version of Steve Slaton, Scott may be your best bet.
