Thursday Midday Notes
-DeSean Jackson will open the season returning punts for the Eagles. Those in leagues that allow individual players to attain special teams pts should take note if there is a matchup debate. Jackson is a superstar in the making.
-Pierre Thomas (knee) tweeted that he is "p[r]eparing for the Lions on Sunday and waiting for the thumbs up from the Saints. We are still skeptical and expect the Saints to save their best back for a game that may not be decided by 30 points.
-Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton did not practice this morning. Most likely just keeping them fresh for game day Sunday.
-Vikings sign Greg Lewis while they cut Bobby Wade. Neither has any fantasy impact.
-Raheem Morris fails to confirm that former Oregon St. WR Sammie Stroughter is his 3rd WR.
-Brett Cecil to be shut down following today's start by the Blue Jays.
-Chien-Ming Wang (shoulder surgery) is hoping to begin playing catch by January.
-Matt Holliday expects to return to the lineup Friday.
