Eli Manning had a very good outing in Week 4 of the 2009 fantasy football season. However, an Eli Manning injury in the fourth quarter has his fantasy owners worried. When dropping back to pass, Manning apparently hurt his heel – without being touched.
The fact that it was a non-contact injury could be bad news. Sometimes when tendons or ligaments pop, it happens when no one else is around.
The good news for Manning, the New York Giants and the fantasy football world is the fact that Manning was able to walk around after the game. However, be sure to keep a close eye on his health this week.
Backing up Manning on the Giants is David Carr. If you have Manning, you may consider picking up Carr off of the waiver wire. That said, Carr has failed so often in fantasy football that you’d probably be better off looking elsewhere — or praying that Manning is indeed okay.
Now that we are to Week 4 of the fantasy football season, we have to start finding replacements for players who have a bye week. If you are seaching for a fantasy football sleeper for Week 4, here are some good options:
QB Shaun Hill, San Francisco 49ers
With Frank Gore out this week, quarterback Shaun Hill will probably need to toss the pigskin more than usual. Add in a favorable opponent in the St. Louis Rams and Hill is definitely a sleeper in Week 4.
RB Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh Steelers
Rashard Mendenhall would definitely be a risky play but he has upside. Starter …read more

1. Chris Paul, New Orleans Hornets
It’s difficult to pass on LeBron James when you have the first pick in your fantasy basketball draft, however Chris Paul is actually the better pick. He’s a basketball stud who has almost no downside.
2. LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers
On talent alone, there’s no player in the NBA who can match LeBron James. If you have …read more
After three weeks of the 2009 fantasy football season, we can start looking at which players have been disappointments thus far. While the fantasy football season is still young, these players might not have the wherewithal to turn it around.
QB Matt Cassel, Kansas City Chiefs
After being traded to the Chiefs in the offseason, big things were expected from Cassel. So far, not so good. In Week 3, he passed for only 90 yards. While he did have two touchdowns, that type of yardage makes him a questionable fantasy start at quarterback for the time being.
RB Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
In most …read more

Pierre Garcon looks like the real deal. …read more

If you want to swing for the fences in Week 3 of the 2009 fantasy football season, here are some sneaky starts. These players could boom or bust — but what fun is it if you don’t give it a try?
QB Byron Leftwich, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Although not exactly thought of as a quality fantasy football starter, Leftwich has a lot going for him this week. He’s playing at home against a banged up New York Giants defense and he’s coming off of a big week. Roll the dice if you are feeling lucky.
RB Chris Wells, Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals are going …read more

QB Derek Anderson, Cleveland Browns
Starter Brady Quinn doesn’t have too tight of a grip on the starting quarterback job in Cleveland. If he doesn’t start playing better, Derek Anderson will get the job. And as we saw a couple of seasons ago, Anderson is definitely capable of being a fantasy beast.
WR Johnny Knox, …read more

QB Tom Brady, New England Patriots
He’s coming off of a bad performance in Week 2 — but don’t let that get you down. He was going against a very good New York Jets defense and once he regains confidence in his knee, he should return to fantasy greatness.
RB Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
Even though Matt Forte has started …read more
