Do other coaches look at KC/Jamaal Charles the way you’d look at your neighbor for owning a Ferrari and never driving it?
 
Pro Football Focus ‏@PFF
Aaron Rodgers has a 131.0 QB rating when throwing to Randall Cobb. Slightly better than the 130.5 Manning has throwing to Demaryius Thomas

FantasyGuru.com ‏@Fantasy_Guru
If you own Matt Stafford it's frustrating, but it looks like he's back, weekly starter.
 
Matt Miller ‏@nfldraftscout
Was my top rated RB in 2011 draft class. RT @tyschalter: Mikel Leshoure. Remember his "career ending" injury?
 
Josh Moore ‏@4for4_Josh
Brandon Marshall is catching 41% of his team's passes. Harvin next at 34%. Wayne 32%. Cruz & Welker 29%. Green, Smith 28%.
 
Mark Geoffriau ‏@mgeoffriau
Love what Eric Decker is doing this season, but missing the 100 yard bonus by 1 yard sure hurts.

"He's got to look himself in the mirror… and say, 'can I do more?'" - Michael Jordan’s advice for Cam Newton (via Charlotte Observer)
 
Josh Moore ‏@4for4_Josh
After Shannahan talk about “evaluating players”, not comfy w/Alfred Morris ROS. (Wasn’t overly comfortable before). Schedule bad out of BYE.
 
Matt Miller ‏@nfldraftscout
Ray Rice should lead the #NFL in carries, but Cam Cameron is a moron. So tough to understand what they think they're doing. #Ravens
 
Jamey Eisenberg ‏@JameyEisenberg
Bernard Pierce scores a touchdown. Every Ray Rice owners yells in disgust.
 
Mary Kay Cabot ‏@MaryKayCabot
#Browns RB Trent Richardson has been impressed with fellow rookie RB Doug Martin, who had 250-plus game. "I'm due for one,'' T-Rich said.
 
Numbers Never Lie ‏@ESPN_Numbers
4. Andrew Luck has thrown for 300+ yards four times this season, tying Peyton Manning’s rookie record.
 
Nathan Zegura ‏@NathanZegura
If you need a wide receiver go get TY Hilton. Big time playmaker and with Avery hurting on the short week, he could be very good vs jax
 
Josh Moore ‏@4for4_Josh
Arian Foster 100% stud. He's scored twice or rushed for 100 in every game but one this year. #fantasyfootball
