The fantasy football news wire is gaining some early steam, with Michael Crabtree apparently leading the way. Remember, it is never to early to cover fantasy football news, and it is never too early to get a leg up on a potential player you could be thinking about in the 2011 fantasy football season.
Let’s take a look.
Michael Crabtree’s foot injury—earlier believed to just be soreness—is a more serious situation than just than originally thought, and it is the same foot injured in 2009 raising a concern reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
The flip side to this is TE Vernon Davis said he expects Crabtree to be ready for the start of the season, so fantasy football fans have nothing to seemingly worry about…for now.
Fox Sports’ Adam Caplan reports that the Eagles intend to show strong interest in Steelers cornerback, Ike Taylor to add another veteran at RCB alongside Asante Samuels.
it isn’t the greatest move in the world, considering Taylor is very burnable, especially in zone packages which is what the Eagles plan to use more of this year, but they—and you—could do far worse in your fantasy IDP league.
The other interesting aspect of this news, means that if the Eagles do opt for Taylor, then Nnamdi Asomugha can safely be removed from any NFC East consideration, and could perhaps wind up in Minnesota…we’ll keep you posted.
Here’s some interesting news: The Seattle Seahawks are rumored to have interest in Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback, Tarvaris Jackson.
Really? I suppose this has somehting to do with Seattle’s offensive coordinator—Darrell Bevell—being Jackson’s former OC in Minny.
