I sure hope everyone is gearing up for a fantastic Thanksgiving. And in honor of Thanksgiving, I want to say thanks to all The Hazean’s readers. I really enjoy blogging about fantasy football and I just hope I can help y’all succeed in your leagues. Tell your friends about The Hazean, and keep those comments coming!
Alright, with all the mushy stuff out of the way, here is a special Start & Sit column for all the Thanksgiving football action. Enjoy!
- Tony Romo v. Jets: So many in the national football scene consider Romo to be the next Brett Favre. Which is kinda perfect, when you think about it, in terms of Thanksgiving. Romo’s legacy started last year on Thanksgiving and will continue to grow until the end of his career with the Cowboys, much like Favre’s.
- Joseph Addai @ Falcons: Addai and the Colts squeaked out a win last weekend at home against the Chiefs and need a win on the road in Atlanta. Peyton Manning is not playing his best football lately, so Addai could be relied on heavily.
- Roy Williams v. Packers: Williams posted a big game last Thanksgiving and is becoming one of the household names in terms of Thanksgiving affairs. The Lions need him tomorrow if they are going to have any shot of knocking off the Division-leading Pack.
- Joey Harrington v. Colts, Kellen Clemens @ Cowboys: C’mon, you had to know it would be these two. All the other QBs on Thanksgiving are more than serviceable in what should be a fun, explosive day of football. But these guys might be in for the most trouble.
- Kevin Jones v. Packers: Jones returned last weekend from his latest bout with the injury bug, but did not produce much. Do not expect any more from him this weekend against a stout Green Bay defense.
- Shaun McDonald v. Packers: McDonald dropped a few key passes last weekend (one that resulted in an interception, which killed the Lions last-chance drive against the Giants) and could see less of the ball this weekend because of that. Roy Williams and Calvin Johnson more likely are the two to steal the Turkey Day spotlight.
