Fantasy Football: Sunday Update

The NFL Network’s Adam Schefter reports that Kellen Winslow and his swollen testes (ouch!) will not play on Monday Night Football. The Saints’ Billy Miller might be available in your league and, if so, he’d be a decent fill in…In a surprise, Marques Colston is inactive against the Raiders. Get him out of your lineups…Roddy White is active against the Bears…John Clayton believes that Eddie Royal will be unable to face the Jaguars…The Bucs expect Joey Galloway back in Week 7, so if he has been cut in your league and you have a roster spot, snatch him up.

Fantasy Football Update: Palmer not starting, Winslow has “swollen testicles”

In a surprise move, the Bengals are going to go with Ryan Fitzpatrick over Carson Palmer. The word is that Palmer could play, so one wonders why Cincy would go with Fitzpatrick instead. This is a downgrade for Chad Johnson and T.J. HoushmandzadehKellen Winslow was hospitalized on Thursday with an “unspecified illness” (ProFootballTalk.com reports that it is “swollen testicles.” Oi!) and is questionable for Monday Night Football. The fact that he plays on Monday is both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, he has an extra day to recover. On the other, it leaves fantasy owners wondering on Sunday morning who to start at TE. Keep an eye on the news on Saturday and if it looks like he’ll play, keep him in your lineup. For what it’s worth, “team insiders” expect him to play…Both Brian Westbrook and Reggie Brown are going to miss Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Correll Buckhalter is a good start in Westy’s place and Desean Jackson should see the bulk of extra work with Brown out…Marques Colston will return this week against the Raiders. Jeremy Shockey is very iffy. I wouldn’t count on him this week…Matt Hasselbeck continues to sit out of practice, but the team is expecting and hoping that he’ll play. He has a decent matchup this week, but if you have a similar option, it’s probably best to go with it…Roddy White missed practice on Thursday, but will likely play against the Bears on Sunday…Bernard Berrian has a tantalizing matchup with the Lions, but he has missed practice and is iffy. Keep an eye on this over the weekend…Jon Kitna is doubtful, and it looks like Dan Orlovsky will get the start.
