NFL Week 1 recap

Here is the first installment of the weekly game result rundown, complete with a brief recap of the offensive (minus kickers, ’cause, who cares?) fantasy highlights and injury updates from the just-finished week. Yea, its long, but one stop shopping!

Packers v. Saints: This game was an aerial fantasy bonanza, as expected. Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees were the men: Rodg was good (312, 3 TDs),¬†Drew Brees was better, fantasy-wise (419, 3 TDs). GB’s receiving corp was led by perennial elite Greg Jennings (7 catches for 89 yards, 1 TD), with budding WR2 Jordy Nelson (6 for 77, 1 TD) making his presence known. Jermichael Finley was solid; just the tip of the iceberg for the big fella (3 for 53). Rookie WR darling Randall Cobb caught and ran back kicks for TDs. James Starks was the main back for the Pack: 57 yards, 1 TD. As usual, Brees spread the ball around: Devery Henderson caught 6 for 100 with a TD to lead the way, but Robert Meachem (5 for 70, TD), Darren Sproles (7 for 75), Marques Colston (6 for 81), and Jimmy Graham (4 for 54, TD) all were heavily involved. Colston broke his collarbone though at the end of the game, so he will be out for at least a month. RBs Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas had about a 70/30 carry split in Ingram’s favor, with neither making much of an impact, partly due to New Orleans playing from behind all game.
