Just as in real football, many fantasy contests in the opening weekend were won with defense.It is normal in IDP leagues to see a few linebackers sprinkled in with the top scorers every week.Last week, defensive backs in particular lit up the fantasy scoreboard.The trick, of course, is finding which ones will come back and do it again.Several usual replica Longines L2.501.4.73.2 Ladie's watch IDP studs also managed to disappoint their owners in Week One.As we keep saying here at the Maniaxs, this is not cause for panic.The occasional dud is all part of using IDPs.Winning owners keep the faith with the right players and don’t churn their rosters just for the sake of chasing last week’s points.Defensive Linemen to Start:Mathias Kiwanuka, Giants (at Colts) – The Giants pulled a bit of surprise last week by starting Osi Umeniyiora at end and moved Kiwanuka to strong side linebacker.
9 none8 Kurt Warner, Fox The recently retired Warner, who has done some Arena League games for NFL network this summer, takes the route of many high profile quarter backs and lands in announcing. But unlike many of those QBs, instead of starting in a high profile studio role or top game announcer, he's starting at the bottom of the replica Baume & Mercier Ladie's watch national totem pole. He takes over for Trent Green on Fox's No. 7 team, which means he'll only work selected weeks when Fox has a full game slate. That may actually be a blessing for Warner as he seeks to develop as an announcer. This role will give him room to grow and make mistakes without being in the national glare, and if he emerges he certainly has the street cred to move up the charts quickly.
But Warner is also close enough to the bottom of Fox's roster that, if he struggles, he can be cut without much notice. So Warner must show signs of ability quickly, or else he'll be looking for a new Post retirement career.7 none6 none5 none4 Antonio Pierce, ESPN After a nine year career with the Redskins and Giants that included a Super replica Baume & Mercier 8352 Ladie's watch Bowl win and a Pro Bowl bid, Pierce hung up his cleats to join ESPN's roster of analysts. He'll appear on NFL Live, SportsCenter, and ESPNEWS and also contribute to ESPN's web and radio platforms in New York. It'll be hard for Pierce to establish a role nationally on ESPN's crowded roster, but his years under the New York media spotlight have polished him to the point that he'll look good on camera. As always, having a player who's competed against most guys he's analyzing is also a plus if the player can be honest.
