Injuries and opportunity. It's why you shouldn't beat yourself up after a bad draft or gloat too much after a fast start. With a big hit or a benching, power can change hands quickly in the fantasy football world, even this late in the season....

While Michael Vick and the Jets fell flat against the Bills in a game that was relocated from the Buffalo area to Detroit because of heavy snow in western New York, the week was otherwise mostly quiet for Virginia-area players.

The break is over for the New York Giants, who after starting with a disappointing 3-4 season will turn their attention to what they're viewing as a nine-game season that starts on Monday night against the Indianapolis Colts.

Days after the Ravens cut offensive lineman A.Q. Shipley, the veteran blocker was starting for the Colts in their season-opener against the Denver Broncos.

Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars of the game when the Ravens play the Colts in Indianapolis.

All that time I spent pumping up Danny Woodhead last week and he goes and breaks a leg (it's a figurative well-wish before a big performance, Danny, not a to-do list). Maybe it's me. I also recommended Minnesota's Matt Cassel, who promptly broke several...
