I apologize for no analysis this week. It’s an extremely busy week for me, and my first draft of this column got lost halfway through. I promise I’ll be back with the in-depth analysis next week!

One thing to say to all those who own Aaron Rodgers. I’d target Case Keenum for the long haul before I’d target Nick Foles. He’s not going to recreate that seven touchdown performance every week. I really like what I saw from Keenum against a Colts defense that has stifled QBs like Peyton Manning. Keenum isn’t afraid to throw it deep, which bodes very well for Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins. Trust me…by the time Rodgers comes back from his injury, Keenum will out-perform Foles.

On to Week 10!

Note: “Comfortables” can be started in all leagues. “Cautions” may be started in 12-team leagues and should definitely be started in 14-team leagues, but might be bench considerations for 10-team leagues or lower. “Casualties” shouldn’t be started in any leagues. “Sleepers” are meant for FLEX spots in 12- and 14-team leagues
