Each week, TSN. Russell Westbrook College Jersey .ca Fantasy Editor Scott Cullen and NFL Editors Ben Fisher and Mike Hetherington discuss three hot fantasy football topics. After their Week 1 performances, can either Tony Romo or Robert Griffin III be trusted as a QB1 this year? Cullen: Trust is a tricky thing and while Romo or Griffin could be legitimate Top 10 quarterbacks this season, its hard to trust that will be the case. Given his longer track record, which includes four 4,000-yard seasons, I might be inclined to ride longer with Romo but, right now, going with either one as your starting QB requires a leap of faith. Fisher: A three interception night from Romo barely phases me these days. Fantasy players that own Romo expect that to happen a couple times over the course of a season but in return they usually get a lot of passing yards and a high number of touchdowns. Romo threw for 281 yards and a TD against the 49ers too so his fantasy performance wasnt nearly as bad as his real life performance in Week 1. I still have Romo as a low-end QB1. Griffin on the other hand, hasnt really shown us much since his great rookie season. The farther removed he is from his brutal knee injury, the less we can blame that for his troubling performances. Or maybe thats just what he is now: a once very promising QB before injuries dropped him to a QB2. Hetherington: I believe Tony Romo still remains a low-end QB1. Its hard to believe hell have another three interception performance like Sunday and the Cowboys remain a questionable team on defence, meaning Romo should get plenty of passing opportunities in shootout games. RG3, on the other end, is not a QB1 you should count on this year. Griffin has yet to show the electrifying playmaking ability he did in his rookie year – when he 20 passing touchdowns and seven rushing scores - prior to his devastating knee injury. Griffin is a strong QB2 and bye-week replacement, but relying on him to carry your offence is inadvisable strategy. Cordarrelle Patterson has carried his strong 2013 finish into this year, how high in the WR rankings can he go this year? Cullen: As great as Pattersons Week One performance was, Im hesitant to get too high on a wide receiver after three catches for 26 yards. Its easy to get seduced by a 67-yard touchdown run, or Pattersons averaging over 17 yards per carry to this point in his career, but if Im counting on big production out of a wide receiver, it needs to come in the passing game. Thus, I would be good to start Patterson, with the idea that a 1,000-yard season is possible, but Im skeptical that he can get above a WR2 in standard formats. Fisher: I understand the hesitancy to buy into Pattersons big Week 1 performance; hes a receiver first and foremost and only had three catches for 226 yards. But why Im big on Patterson and think hell be a star, both in fantasy and in real life, is that hes a playmaker. Guys like that always seem to find a way onto the highlight reel. He should get enough touches each week to make a few big plays and put up strong fantasy numbers. Hetherington: Patterson will only go as far as his quarterback will take him. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, that quarterback is the unreliable Matt Cassel, who threw for just 170 yards in the Vikings 34-6 rout of the Rams on Sunday. Forgotten in Pattersons big fantasy stat line is just 26 of his yards came in the passing game on three catches. The explosive wide receiver racked up his fantasy points in the run game, including a 67-yard touchdown, leaving one to wonder if defences will be more prepared for those rushes going forward. I see Patterson as a boom-or-bust, low-end WR1 or top-tier WR2, meaning hes a risky but must start WR each week. At best, Patterson could crack the top-eight receivers in fantasy this season. At Worst, Cassel is benched after multiple ineffective weeks and the Vikings put Teddy Bridgewater under centre. Such a scenario could drop Patterson out of the top-15 WRs and leave him to struggle for targets in the Vikings run-first offence. Patterson could be a sell-high trade option for cautious owners. Can Julius Thomas overtake Jimmy Graham as top fantasy TE this year? Cullen: Sure, if Peyton Manning decides that Thomas is his guy, maybe Thomas makes a quantum leap, but its really hard to make the jump from where Thomas was all the way to Grahams level because Graham is practically in a league of his own – his only reasonable tight end competition over the past three seasons has been Rob Gronkowski, when Gronk isnt hurt. While Im throwing some water on the idea of Thomas surpassing Graham, I do view Thomas as the most likely candidate to join Graham and Gronk on the top tight end tier. Fisher: I still think Graham is the Saints top red zone target by a good margin while Thomas will likely have to share more of his red zone targets with other Broncos receivers, namely DeMaryius Thomas. If the Broncos score at the rate they did last year, there may be enough targets for Orange Julius to take over as the top fantasy TE, but the Saints offence isnt that far behind Denvers and over the course of the year I still think Graham ends up on top. Hetherington: After his three touchdown performance, Thomas has put himself in the conversation at the very least. If Thomas establishes himself as Peyton Mannings top red-zone target this season, the fourth-year tight end could lead the entire league in touchdowns, which would likely put him ahead of Graham in fantasy points. Graham will be the more reliable play each week as he has all but guaranteed receptions from Drew Brees, but its not hard to imagine Thomas finishing the season as the top point-getter at fantasys weakest position.

Doug Fister and Jake Peavy, youre up next in Game 4 and theres a lot to live up to. Adoree Jackson USC Jersey . Nainggolan scored his first Italian league goal at Bologna, in October 2010, and he also opened his Roma account there following his January move from Cagliari. The Belgium midfielder volleyed home Miralem Pjanics cross from close range eight minutes from time. . -- The Oakland Raiders expect to have starting right tackle Tony Pashos back for Sundays game against the Houston Texans.Were still several weeks away from the Heisman Watch taking off in earnest, but after the first week of NCAA action is a good time to track some of the preseason favourites for college sports most prestigious individual award. The schedule is usually lacking the first 3-4 weeks of the season until conference play begins, but the opening week offered a few intriguing matchups, the most of which was No. 8 Clemsons 38-35 win over No. 5 Georgia. With the biggest spotlight of the week shining on him, Clemsons senior quarterback Tajh Boyd delivered. The dual threat QB scored all five of the Tigers touchdowns (three through the air and two on the ground) in the win against a tough SEC opponent. For that, Boyd becomes the early season man to beat for the Heisman. The good news for Boyd, and Clemson, is the Tigers have a very easy schedule until their October 19th meeting with Florida State. With his statement game already out of the way, theres plenty of time for Boyd to pad his stats against lesser competition in September and early October. Despite playing just the second half against Rice, last years Heisman winner Johnny Manziel didnt let Boyd out of his sights in the early Heisman race. Manziel connected on sixx of eight passes and three touchdowns in Texas A&Ms season-opening win. Lonzo Ball UCLA Jersey. Teddy Bridgewater, a prospective first overall pick come next spring, is one to watch as well. The Louisville junior had to wait until Sunday to rip up the Ohio Bobcats secondary, throwing for 355 yards and five touchdowns to one interception in the No. 9 Cardinals win. Ohio State junior Braxton Miller and Alabama senior AJ McCarron were also included in most preseason Heisman candidate lists but did little to impress in their first action of the 2013 season. Miller had a pedestrian 178 yards passing and two touchdowns to one interception, but added 77 yards on the ground in the Buckeyes somewhat disappointing win over Buffalo. McCarron meanwhile, was 10-23 for 110 yards, one touchdown and one interception and lost 23 yards to the pressure front of Virginia Tech. Jadeveon Clowneys campaign to become the first defensive player to win the Heisman since Charles Woodson pulled off the feat in 1998 got off to a slow start, literally. No. 6 South Carolina got by their rivals North Carolina but looked sluggish on defence. Clowney gets a pass as he was recovering from a stomach virus the week leading up to the game.
