The Counselor is IN:
Steve Smith- Still Questionable- keep him on the bench this week.
T.J. Houshmandzadeh- I am going to do a full 180. Housh is very questionable for this week. I thought he would start and be a stud but there is no guarantee that he will start. In fact, it appears that the Bengals are comfortable with starting Henry in his place. Bench Housh this week unless you hear that he is starting right before the game.
Musa Smith- Musa is now the 2nd on the depth chart. He is ahead of Mike Anderson on the depth chart. If he is available in a keeper league, then he is worth a flyer.
Jerry Porter- He continues to be in the dog house in Oakland. He parked in Al Davis' parking spot on Wednesday. I would not count on him for anything at this point.
Peter Warrick- He is expected to play this season for the Lions after being released from the Seahawks. He is not a sleeper or a good pick at this time.
Jeremy Shockey- He was added to the injury list as probably with an ankle injury. He will play. I would not bench him.
Derrick Mason- He has been upgrade to probable. He should play on Sunday. He is not a good fantasy play this week going against a tough Tampa Bay defense. He is at best a 4th WR.
Jamal Lewis- He has also been upgraded to probable. If you have other options, you might want to with them instead of Lewis against Tampa Bay.
Clinton Portis- He has stated that he will not be ready until week 2. Do not play him this week.
LenDale White- He practiced on Friday but may not be active for week one. He is not a good fantasy starter at this point even if he plays.
