Another week, another Thursday night snoozer. What’s the deal with this? I suppose the schedule-makers had no idea that Cam Newton was going to be a disappointment through the first half of the season or that Doug Martin was going to go down with a torn labrum in his shoulder or that Josh Freeman was going to stink it up so badly that even Tampa Bay didn’t want him, but man, these games have not been kind to the casual fan watching and they certainly haven’t been kind to the fantasy football world either. In fact, I’ve had people emailing me in search of a suggested replacement for their guy who does play in a Thursday night game. It’s apparently gotten that bad.
Trying to make those last minute adjustments to your roster? Well, the Thursday night game is soon to be underway and there are a few players of note that you’re probably trying to decide whether they’re worth the start on the short week or if you should just bypass them in favor of some other options you may have. At first glance though, a match-up of the Seahawks and Cardinals doesn’t really sound too appealing, unless of course, you own the Seattle defense, but who knows? Maybe there’s a hidden gem or two in there you might like.
