Thanksgiving week means a short turnaround in the football world. Those of us in Denver (or who have the NFL Network) will be blessed with three games on Thanksgiving Day [art: Dean Rohrer]. I mean truly, can there be a better way to 1) start a 4-day weekend or 2) give thanks than to have football games on all day long? Didn't think so. But what this means is that you'll have to pay quick attention to your lineups this week. Start-Bench sites are likely to go live early - I know that NFL's Start 'em Sit 'em will go up on Wednesday night. I'll be sure to get a blog going on Start-Bench sites as the time gets closer.
In the meantime, I know fantasy teams that completely fell apart this weekend. Wheels came flying off the playoff machines thanks to injuries from McNabb, Kevin Jones, Marques Colston, Reuben Droughns, LaMont Jordan (though who was really counting on that guy to get them to the playoffs?)...and Bulger, what is going on? As a two-league Bulger owner, I have some serious concerns. So where to go for replacements? Check out these sites for advice:
