The Corner of Knowledge would like apologize for being MIA, but we’re back and we’re bearing gifts. Hopefully you’ve been able to stay in contention for your league’s championship and now I’m about to give you three players who could definitely play a major role in bringing you a championship.
Pierre Thomas, Saints, RB
With all signs pointing to Deuce McAllister about to get suspended for using a banned substance, Reggie Bush still not 100% following knee surgery and Aaron Stecker out for the season with an injury, Thomas is the only game in town. He’s coming off a very solid game last week in which he rushed for 88 yards and a touchdown to go
along with 56 receiving yards. Even if Bush plays this week, do you really think he’ll stay injury-free for the remainder of the year?
Brandon Lloyd, Bears, WR
Lloyd has been slow to heal, but he owns the only 100-yard receiving game by a Bears WR this season. With Kyle Orton‘s injury a lot of fantasy players have fallen asleep on the Bears’ passing game and Lloyd, if healthy, could make a nice late season addition to your lineup.
Matt Leinart, Cardinals, QB
I know this is a stretch, but that’s the way I roll. Is this the first time since 2001 that Kurt Warner plays in all 16 games? I’m gonna play the odds and say no. I am fully aware of how bad Leinart looked in preseason, but he’ll have some serious upside should he get a chance to pitch the rock in this offense. It’s a long shot, but it’s full of upside.
So, I’m flipping stations yesterday afternoon between football games and I come across an episode of T.J. Hooker. I never watched T.J. Hooker during it’s original run between 1982 and 1985, but I figured it would be good for a laugh to watch William Shatner overact and who wouldn’t enjoy watching Heather Locklear running around in a mini?
