The Blurb Herd is a little tired after last night’s little BlogTalk technology explosion, so we’re running a tad behind.
Luckily it’s not like we’ve had huge news yet today – it’s no like LT retired or somethign this morning.
Still there was a little bit of movement here and there:
Of course, as we knew, guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Brett Favre and Marc Bulger will not be playing in their preseason finale.
Guys like Trent Green, Byron Leftwich and Kellen Clemens will.
Still, as I said on last night’s Thundering Blurb Fantasy Football Podcast, there are still reasons to watch and position battles to be won.
In more direct news -
Kansas City Chiefs
Larry Johnson will see action vs the Rams even though he has already seen a bunch of work in the preseason. He hasn’t been tremendously sharp though and I think they would like him to spring into the season on a high note.
We keep talking about how we don’t know who will catch balls in Jacksonville, but we do know that Troy Williamson hasn’t caught ANY balls this preseason. He needs a big night to have an impact this season – or maybe even stick on the team at all. Matt Jones and Mike Walker are holding the seast warm for Jerry Porter and Reggie Williams and it still tells me very little of whether any of these guys will have an impact. Garrard will spread the ball around and like I have said before, put up good numbers himself but probably not have that 1 WR who will make your Fantasy team happy.
Green Bay Packers
Ryan Grant is another RB who will see some time tonight. This will make the game a little more interesting to watch and unlike the Larry Johnson thing, is less of a shock. Grant missed a bunch of the preseason and needs the work. he won’t be out there too long, but he’ll get some work and maybe widen the gap between himself and Brandon Jackson a little more.
That’s all for now – will be back this afternoon with some more news. And don’t forget to check out The Drive Block on BlogTalkRadio.com tonight with myself and the Footballguys’ own Cecil Lammey and Sigmund Bloom. That’s 7pm PST/10pm EST.
