Keep An Eye on Michael Turner, Chad Ohcocinco, and Champ Bailey

After Turner came out of the game last week with a groin injury, fantasy owners everywhere where holding their breath, praying this wasnt going to be another 2009 season.  However, not to fear as according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Orlando Ledbetter, Turner should is expected to be good to go Sunday against the Saints.

Then after a promising 31-14 win against the Seahawks, the Broncos were brought back down to earth as All-Pro CB, Champ Bailey, left the field on crutches.  However, owners of the Broncos D, or leagues where  you play defensive players, may be able to breathe a sigh of relief after according to www.denver.sbnation.com , coach Josh McDaniels ” went so far as to claim Bailey may play next Sunday in the showdown against AFC Champion Indianapolis and quarterback Peyton Manning.”  Bailey’s presence would be a monstrous booster for Denver’s secondary, and his absence could spell disaster.

Then around 7-8 am Tuesday, according to www.cbssports.com , Chad Ochocinco tweeted that he has a cracked rib.  However, again according CBS sports, “Chad often tweets in jest,” team spokesperson Jack Brennan said. “If it is something serious, it will come out soon.”  So, so far so good, as nothing has really come out, so expect Ocho to play.  Fantasy owners pay special attention to this though, because if he does play, expect a big game.  Through the first two weeks, Ochocinco is second in the league in receiving yards, and the Panthers (their week 3 game) secondary has been less than flattering this year.  In two games the Panthers have allowed opposing wide receivers to 15 receptions, 257 yards, and 4 TD’s over the first two games this year.

    • Drop Bush, broken fibula spells disaster for a RB, especailly one like Bush. With his explosiveness, and elusiveness, he needs all the leg strength he cna get. Although they say his time table for return is only 6 weeks, don’t be surprised if it takes longer.
