NFL Week 10: A little bit of everything

I had a few more topics I wanted to get into before Saturday so let's start.

Chester Taylor was upgraded to probable and is expected to play in Week 10. Meaning you can definitely play him against Green Bay this week, he should have a top 5 RB day here.

Greg Jennings did not practice Friday, making him a game-time decision for this weeks game against the Vikings. He is listed as questionable. Last week against the Bills, he left early with 5 minutes left in the 4th quarter. I don't know if I'd trust Jennings to play a complete game yet, so Ruvell Martin should be seeing a few looks this week against the Vikings. The Packers probably won't have too much success running against the #1 ranked rushing defense so any other Packer receiver is playable. Driver seems to be a good start.

Larry Fitzgerald is expected to play Week 10 and is listed as probable. I'm personally not starting him this week. I know it's hard to sit Fitz any week, but I want to see how he comes off this injury. The Arizona passing game has been terrible only getting 306 yards in the last two games, one of those games being against the Packers with the worst ranked pass defense. I'm either being bold or stupid with sitting him, we'll see!

Cleveland Browns among everything else are now having injury troubles. Charlie Frye, Jurevicius, and Winslow II have all been listed as questionable all week. Frye has been upgraded to probable after practicing Friday. Frye is supposed to be given more freedom to call his own plays which may make a difference this Sunday. The Atlanta defense has given up 14 TDs, 31 points per game, about 300 passing yards and 129 rushing yards per game, in their last 4 games. Will we see Frye playing like he was fantasy wise the first weeks? Might start seeing an improvement
Jurevicius is expected to play Week 10 after practicing Friday.
Winslow II, one of the best fantasy TE's, has been listed as questionable with a knee injury for 6 straight games, but hasn't missed a start yet. Winslow owners should be keeping an eye on his status and if he's going to practice or not this week.

Terry Glenn is unlikely to play against the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. Every Dallas Cowboy seems to be a solid start, except for Glenn. Romo, T.O, Witten, and Jones are all definite starts. Barber is a maybe, he could be good for a TD. Another fill-in starter to consider this week could be Crayton. I've mentioned I had him last year and he wasn't bad. He has become more involved as the season has gone on. Last week vs Washington, he caught 4 balls for 84 yards. If you need a spot start this week I'd consider him. He's my sleeper of the week.

Here's some Tomlinson news, during his hot hot ! TD streak he only needs 3 TDs to tie Jim Browns league record (15) of most scores in a five-game stretch. In leagues I don't have him in, he's nearly single handedly beaten me.

Make sure to start all of your Detroit Lions this week. I'd assume most of you are starting your main guys like Kitna, R Williams and Kevin Jones... but you also have to throw Furrey in there as well. Detroit will be able to throw all over this weak 49ers defense.

In my last bit of news it saddens me to see that the San Francisco 49ers will probably move
to Santa Clara by 2012.
Or at least thats the estimated date they are throwing out there. A nice thing I did see though for those who are curious is that they won't be changing their name. They will still remain our beloved San Francisco 49ers.

Tomorrow I may post some more news, but I want to do a IDP edition of a few players who are doing well you will want to pickup.

Thanks for reading as always
