It was the Chris Ivory show in the Superdome on Friday Night, as the undrafted rookie running back probably cemented himself a spot on the Saints with a 76 yard TD reception and some strong running in the Champs impressive victory over the Chargers. Drew Brees looks like he's ready for the season to start right now, completing 18 passes and throwing 2 scores to Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem. Philip Rivers had a TD pass to Malcolm Floyd and Antonio Gates had 5 catches for 66 yards. The great Ryan Mathews who is already having a wing constructed for him in the Fantasy Football Hall of Fame had just 3.3 yards per on 13 carries. You read it here first, Ryan Mathews is the Fantasy Bust of 2010, him and Beanie Wells. San Diego couldn't run the ball last year, couldn't run it the year before that, and it wasn't all LT's fault.
Nicky's Fantasy Factor
Mugatu was very pleased the Philip Rivers fell to the fifth round in our draft, and we were able to grab him. Our gambit of letting Tom Brady go and using those picks on running backs (who turned out to be Jonathan Stewart and Knowshon Moreno), seems to have worked, as we still have a restaurant quality QB in Rivers. Me and my bro's team (Texas Beltbuckles), will have Pierre Thomas opening the season as our RB2, and I've got a bad feeling about that.
