Sorry for the absence but real life has recently been catching up to me. However, there are a couple of early lines that are quite intriguing and are worth a gander:
SF (-3) @ CAR: Last time I checked, the Panthers were terrible. At least the niners have talent, which is something the Panthers can not say. Look for this game to be low scoring because, lets face it, neither team can light the world on fire with its passing game, but look for the niners to pull away at the end of the game and win by 10. Take the points.
SEA (-6) vs. ARZ: If you need a sleeper fantasy defense/special teams, take a look at Seattle's Defense for the next two weeks. I'm not saying that they are incredible, but they have great matchups, and Max Hall is guaranteed at least one turnover this week and a couple of sacks. If you have any Cardinal offensive player try and trade them for anything at this point because this team is in a race with Buffalo to see who can get on the clock first. Seattle at home is a much better team than Seattle on the road and six points is a lot to give in the NFL, but Arizona is that bad. To see how bad I thought they'd be, reference my future picks from the preseason. Score one for me!

As we're getting more and more into Survivor pools, it's time to just make the safe pick and move on. If you haven't taken Pittsburgh yet, this is the weekend to do so. Big Ben back at home vs Cleveland who is starting a rookie QB. If you can't take Pittsburgh then take the Giants at home vs Detroit.
