Fabiano's two-minute drill: Week 12

Bernard Berrian made one of the prettiest catches you will ever see for a touchdown to tie the score in Chicago at 34-34. ... Javon Walker has been held without a catch in Chicago.

» Adrian Peterson dragged what looked like the entire Denver defense into the end zone for a touchdown. He will be a hot name on the waiver wire next week. ... Larry Fitzgerald is putting on an absolute show against San Francisco. He has 108 yards and two touchdowns and he's making acrobatic catches all over the field. ... Talk about putting on a show, let's talk about Kurt Warner. He's closing in on throwing for 400 passing yards.

» Tony Scheffler makes an incredible catch for a touchdown in the Denver-Chicago contest. He is having a huge game for fantasy owners. ... Touchdown Frank Gore, on a 35-yard run. This is his best performance of the season, and it came at a time when a lot of fantasy owners had lost faith in him. ... The Tacoma News Tribune reports that D.J. Hackett's injured ankle, which he suffered against St. Louis, could be serious. ... Jay Cutler just found Brandon Marshall wide open for a 68-yard touchdown. Does anyone want to play defense? There have been three touchdowns in about 30 seconds!

» Another touchdown for Devin Hester! This one came on an 88-yard punt return. He had a 75-yard punt return earlier in the contest. ... Cecil Sapp scores on a 5-yard run, but the real story of the Denver-Chicago contest is Andre Hall. He has 168 all-purpose yards and one touchdown. ... Cedric Benson was seen on the sidelines on crutches with a boot on his left foot. Not good. ... Kyle Boller connects with Le'Ron McClain on a 13-yard touchdown pass.

» Marcel Shipp scores on a 1-yard run. ... Cedric Benson has been taken off the field on a cart. That's bad news for the Chicago backfield. Adrian Peterson will replace Benson and be a hot name on the waiver wire next week. ... Frank Gore scores on an 11-yard run. That's his first visit to the end zone since Week 2. ... Touchdown, Andre Hall, on a 16-yard run. This kid runs hard, and he's on his way to solid stat line for fantasy footballers (and the fantasy girl).

» I'm in a 16-team league and had to start Rex Grossman. I've lost Jake Delhomme, Matt Leinart and Vinny Testaverde at quarterback in that league. I need to pray very hard. ... Vernon Davis scores on a 2-yard pass from Trent Dilfer. ... The fantasy girl has to be thrilled -- Kolby Smith scored 33 points in her league this week. Now she needs Andre Hall to do some work.

Frank Gore has returned to action after what looked like a bad ankle ailment. ... Frank Gore appears to have injured his ankle in the San Francisco-Arizona contest. It looked bad, and he's on the sidelines. Maurice Hicks has replaced him in the backfield. ... Touchdown, Larry Fitzgerald, on a 28-yard pass from Kurt Warner.

Leonard Weaver scores on a 5-yard run as Seattle takes a 24-19 lead over St. Louis. ... Matt Moore has replaced David Carr, who was awful against New Orleans.

» Jamal Lewis scores on 1-yard run. ... Touchdown, Plaxico Burress, on a 6-yard pass from Eli Manning. That's the first touchdown for Burress since Week 6. ...

Fargas now has 96 yards on the ground. ... Deion Branch scores on a 9-yard pass from Matt Hasselbeck. ... After a slow start, Maurice Morris now has 68 yards on nine carries.

» Another defensive touchdown for Minnesota! Chad Greenway picks off Eli Manning and scores on a 37-yard return. The Vikes did this to the Giants a few seasons back, when the team failed to score an offensive touchdown and still won via scores on defense and special teams. ... Chris Brown scores on a 3-yard run. ... Touchdown, Minnesota defense, on a 93-yard interception return from Dwight Smith. The Vikes now have two defensive scores in the contest. ...

He just tossed a bad interception and has 75 passing yards with no touchdowns in the first half. ... Touchdown Kellen Winslow, on a 7-yard pass from Derek Anderson.

» David Carr has one completion against New Orleans. One. Could he be worse? I mean, he couldn't even beat out a 43 year old on the depth chart and he has killed the value of Steve Smith. As the fantasy girl likes to say, my mom could score more fantasy points than Carr. She is so right. ... I don't like the black referee pants. I'm used to the white ones -- the black ones look weird to me. ... The Rams look incredible on defense against Seattle. So much for Maurice Morris this week! ...

Chester Taylor just made an incredible 8-yard run for a touchdown, as he slipped several tacklers and reached the end zone.

» Clinton Portis has three carries for three yards in Tampa Bay. ... Braylon Edwards scores on a 19-yard pass from Derek Anderson. Edwards is a touchdown machine, and I don't see how Anderson isn't the Cleveland starter in 2008. Brady Quinn could be moved in the offseason, because he won't have a chance to start if Anderson is this productive. ... Lee Evans doesn't have one catch in Jacksonville. ... Maurice Jones-Drew has four carries for minus-9 yards. Ouch.

» Touchdown Isaac Bruce, on a 15-yard pass from Gus Frerotte. ... Justin Gage has 77 yards in the first half against Cincinnati. I loved him as a sleeper this week -- Vince Young looks to him often. Gage should be added in leagues with 12-plus teams. ... Marc Bulger has left the Seattle-St. Louis contest with rib and back soreness. His return is questionable. Gus Frerotte is under center for the Rams.

» Not a good start for Maurice Morris in St. Louis. Two carries, zero yards. ... Touchdown, Minnesota defense, on a 20-yard interception return from Darren Sharper. ... Reports indicate Aaron Stecker, not Reggie Bush, started for New Orleans. Bush is not 100 percent, so it looks like he'll be limited in Carolina. That's bad news for fantasy footballers. ... That Kevin Walter scores on a 17-yard pass from Matt Schaub.

» Touchdown, Seattle defense and special teams, on an 89-yard kick return from Josh Wilson. ... Steven Jackson scores on a 53-yard run. He is back! ... Jeff Garcia is back under center for the Buccaneers. ... Kolby Smith has already rushed for close to 60 yards and one touchdown in the first quarter against Oakland. ... The Cardinals lead the Mariners 2-0 in St. Louis. Err, make that the Rams lead the Seahawks.

» Reuben Droughns scores on a 1-yard run for the G-Men. ... Earnest Graham scores on a 1-yard run to put the Bucs ahead. Graham has become a solid No. 2 fantasy runner this season. ....

That's 11 fantasy points off the bat for the veteran back.

» Jeff Garcia was injured in the first series against Washington. Bruce Gradkowski has replaced him under center for the Buccaneers. ... Sebastian Janikowski converts on a 25-yard field goal to put Oakland ahead 3-0. Sea Bass is on fire! ... Sidney Rice scores on a 60-yard pass from Tarvaris Jackson.

» Adrian Peterson is inactive, so Chester Taylor will see most of the carries in New York. ... Ron Dayne will start for the Texans in Cleveland. ... D.J. Hackett is active and will start in St. Louis. ... Vinny Testaverde is inactive, which is bad news for the value of Steve Smith. David Carr will start in his absence.

» Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward are both inactive, so Reuben Droughns will start and see most of the carries against Minnesota. He's a viable flex starter in fantasy leagues. ... Donovan McNabb is out, so A.J. Feeley will start in New England. I smell a 42-0 final score in that contest. ... Adrian Peterson is doing his pregame warmups at the Meadowlands, but it appears he will not be active.

» Hi everyone -- hope you all had a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Can you believe we're in Week 12? It seems like we wait forever for the NFL season to arrive, and it seems to move through fast. There are two more weeks of the fantasy football regular season left on the slate, and then the quest for league championships starts. ... Here's my weekly shout out to Jessica (aka "the fantasy girl"), who has threatened to kill me when I see her in January if Selvin Young or Andre Hall doesn't outscore Ryan Grant. I liked Grant as a sleeper, but the matchups dictated that she start Chester Taylor, Young or Hall and my sleeper of the week, Kolby Smith. We'll see how it goes, but I should get a pass regardless: Against my advice, she started Donovan McNabb over Kurt Warner last week and lost. Should would have won by a point had she started Warner.

» I can hear her saying "whatever" all the way from Atlanta.
