And then there is the other side of the coin. It is time for the weekly Chris Johnson "I suck" fest. The following individuals should head to their respective corners and feel shame.
Carson Palmer has been cursed by fantasy owners millions of times before but his 175 yards and one touchdown to go along with three interceptions netted his owners five points. Tom Brady played in a deluge of rain on Sunday, but that's no excuse, he's Tom freaking Brady. He was held out of the endzone for the first time in 52 games by the Bengals.
First I didn't understand why Cincinnati kept going back to BenJarvus Green Ellis, and I was angry. Then I watched my guy Gio melt away the clock rushing for 63 yards in the second half and pointed my index finger at my tv and said "see Marvin Lewis…see!" Then Gio fumbled and all hope was lost. In most scoring leagues my guy Gio netted four points.
When the fantasy world shook at 10:32 CST when Calvin Johnson was officially listed as out with a bum knee, I had high hopes for Reggie Bush. The whole Lions offense could have just been deactivated. They might have put up better numbers. Bush ran for 44 yards and had 25 receiving but not nearly enough for the point machine.
I guess it isn't Andre Johnson's fault that his quarterback seems to like throwing the ball to the other team just as much as he does to him. Dre' was targeted 10 times, but caught just three balls for 39 yards in San Francisco.
When your quarterback is Peyton Manning and your offense scores 51 points, do you think you could muster more than five catches for 57 yards? I mean really? You consider yourself a number one wide receiver right? No wings for you…only winners get wings.

Entering his fifth NFL game, Jordan Cameron had scored and or topped 100 yards in three of his first four games. That completely changed in week five against the Bills. Cameron caught just three balls for 36 yards.
Everything about the Texans is bad right now including kicker Randy Bullock. He is 7-for-12 in the field goal department and is the only player at his position to post a negative score -1 in week two. Kickers are supposed to give you easy points. The only thing easy about Bullock is the decision to keep his butt on the bench.
Up until this week, the Cowboys defense had been decent. They took a nose dive against the Broncos scoring -7 points in most leagues that track these things.
