Week 4: Watch List

Here are some names of players to keep an eye on, for various reasons:

RB Le’Ron McClain (BAL): McGahee has been beat up a little this year (most recently, he got poked — or gouged — in the eye), and the Ravens have looked to lean on McClain, rather than Rice. He had 19 carries in week 1, and another 17 in week 2 (including 2 TDs). However, he did miss practice yesterday with a migraine. If he plays, look for him to get about 15-20 touches and some goal line carries.

WR Lance Moore (NO): It seems like every other option in New Orleans is injured. Moore is not big (5-9, 185), but he caught 7 passes last week (which was every one thrown his way). Brees likes to spread the ball around, and apparently has been a big proponent of getting Moore involved in the offense. Keep an eye on him, since Henderson and Meachem have not been very reliable and Patten is slowed by injury.

WR Kevin Curtis (PHI): Curtis has missed the first three weeks of 2008 with a sports hernia, but he is recovering well and could be back in the lineup very soon. I read one report that thought he might be ready as soon as this weekend, but it seems like that is very unlikely. Keep an eye on his progress, though, as he was the Eagle’s leading WR last year.

WR Josh Reed (BUF): Roscoe Parrish will miss this weekend’s game with an injury. Reed has been around the league for awhile but has never really developed into a legitimate fantasy WR. But the Bills are solid on offense, and he could benefit from the attention opposing defenses have to pay to Lee Evans and Marshawn Lynch.

WR Chris Henry (CIN): Chris Henry will not be playing this weekend, but he is scheduled to return from his suspension for week 5. Although it will probably take him a week or two to get into “game shape”, and the Bengals have not been very effective on offense, he is a very talented (albeit apparently very stupid) WR who could have an impact upon his return (particularly with Ocho Cinco struggling).
