Your fantasy football draft has come and gone, and now the panic has set in as you realize that your team is not as flawless as you originally had hoped. In fact, your starting lineup has more holes in it then Tupac.
Have no fear, WWW is here.
Each week, The Hazean will deliver a few free agent acquisitions that might help your team squeeze out a win. So, without further ado …
Daunte Culpepper, Oakland — Since Culpepper did not even belong to a team this summer, there is a great chance that he was undrafted in your fantasy football draft. However, after a promising preseason and a nonexistent Detroit secondary, Culpepper has the potential to score a plethora of points this weekend. The only cloud of doubt is that head coach Lane Kiffin is being tight-lipped on whether Culpepper or Josh McCown will get the start against the Lions.
Amani Toomer, New York Giants — The Giants No. 1 WR Plaxico Burress has missed the entire preseason and might be a tad rusty heading into week 1. While Burress adjusts, Toomer will get the majority of the looks from QB Eli Manning.
Leon Washington, New York Jets — This is a situation where Thomas Jones, the Jets’ No. 1 RB, has been hurt throughout the preseason. Based on that information, Washington could get the call in Jones still isn’t at 100 percent. Monitor this situation carefully.
Washington — If ever in need of a defense, always go with a team that is playing at home. And in Washington’s case this weekend, always go with a defense that is playing at home against a terrible offense (i.e. Miami).
