Henne's start shouldn't be overlooked because of Brady

That's right, Chad Henne ranked second in fantasy points in Week 1. Put that in your pipe ...


Lost in Tom Brady's dominating performance from Monday night was Chad Henne's effort -- 34.54 points in standard scoring systems -- just a touch below. And that should not be overlooked.

Henne deserves to be on your fantasy team. Maybe not the starter, but he deserves to be on the roster. Henne has one of the most favorable schedules of any quarterback this season, and he has some tremendous matchups against the Broncos in Week 7, the Giants in Week 8 and Bills in Week 11. Though, the Bills looked less like a pushover after trouncing the Chiefs in Week 11. Our Michael Fabiano had Henne as his No. 2 quarterback in his FPA ratings earlier this year.

The fact still remains that you will need a backup quarterback at some point this season, and Henne is looking like a viable option.

Hey, Henne goes crazy and Donovan McNabb passed for less than 100 yards? McNabb is done, right? - Reader Matt P. (via text message)
Great point, there was no reason to play McNabb before, and he has no reason to be on your roster right now. The Christian Ponder era starts some time by Week 9.

Who is better for week 2. Freeman or Romo? Dany Woodhead or Ryan Grant? Owen Daniels or Tony Gonzalez? Thankyou - Tomas G. Lopez (via Twitter)
If Romo can torch the Jets' defense, he should have no problem at San Francisco. Sure Romo folded again, but fantasy enthusiasts should love what he could do against a lesser defense. Or so you hope. In your other deal, Woodhead and Daniels are the guys I would start.

Should i be concerned about Chris Johnson's lack of performance? Should I try to trade him while I can? - Sam Roberts (via Twitter)
The Titans are going to start getting the ball into Johnson's hands much more as the season continues to progress. Not crazy about the matchup against the Ravens this week, but Johnson will be great over the long run.

Steelers sunk me. Is Addai more of a RB3 now? -- qcumber98 (via Twitter)
Addai is a RB3 at best. But keep an eye on him. The Colts figure to be miserable (in other words, will be throwing a lot) and Addai is pretty good out of the backfield. Most of these running backs need to be able to catch, and that gives him some hope.

Grossman or Bradford thus week? Dr. Loomis (via Twitter)
I am worried about Bradford's hand, even though he is expected to play on Monday night and the matchup is rather good. Grossman showed enough over the Giants that he is a QB1 now, and he should be in your lineup.

Can I get in your fantasy league next season? Also I won my first fantasy game! - Dakota Hunt (via Twitter)
No.

But congratulations on your big win.
