Peter King does fantasy advice, and it is a little strange. He likes Darius Watts and Najeh Davenport, that's fine. But Favre and Brady ahead of Vick and McNabb? Maybe he doesn't play in a league where QB rushing counts. And he clearly isn't reading Football Outsiders, because he ranks Portis eighth among running backs and Green third. Remember: RB whose yd/car rises .50 yards from one year to the next tend to drop, on average, .75 yards in the third year. One more question: Since when is Tennessee an offensive that is struggling?
In an opening week where even the elite teams in college football looked mortal, the SEC had two big surprises in Texas A&M and Georgia defeating their South Carolinian opponents by big scores.
