I was higher than most on Vick last week, and against the Chargers, he reaches a new high. As long as he's healthy (over/under four more games playing like this?) Vick is a Top 10 or better play every week... There are simply too many questions in a short week for the Patriots to have Brady higher... The Manning Bros. are set for a shootout, and Peyton's over/under for TDs has to be at least three.

I hate to say it - because I'm trusting in him - but DeAngelo Williams looked good in Week 1... The Giants said they need David Wilson, and I still believe he gets another shot this week - and by shot, I mean the full workload unless he fumbles again... Bradshaw should continue to get more touches as he rounds into form... It seems that Thomas is better suited for the Saints offense than Ingram, even after many touted Ingram for a breakthrough year (not this guy though).

Another player that just needs to stay healthy is Nicks. When he's on the field and 100 percent (not often), Nicks can put up WR1 numbers... Shorts - and I - will love seeing Chad Henne back at QB. Hopefully, the Blaine Gabbert experiment is over... Edelman reaches the Top 30 this week, after all, who else will Brady throw to?... The Colts say they need to get Hilton more involved. Uh, talk about stating the obvious... Until the Titans move on from Locker, Britt and the rest of the Titans WRs will have a tough go of it.

Both Cook and Thomas crack the Top 10. I wanted to see more from Cook before giving him Top 10 honors, and I'll still a bit hesitant... Gates looks fresher than he has in years, but that Chargers offense is going to limit his consistency... Let's hold off at least one more week before jumping fully on board with Winslow.
