There's been talk about parity reigning supreme in the NFL this season.That's not quite correct. What that really means is that some teams that stank last year are now pretty tough while some teams that are traditionally strong have really tanked.
The latter group is increasing by the week. Dallas clearly is buzzard food now along with Carolina. We'll see how Denver used the bye week to recover from being annihilated at home by Oakland. Seattle's been blown out two weeks in a row. Controversy dogs Minnesota, Washington and Chicago.
A full quarter of the league could make their opposing IDPs all must-starts before we reach the fantasy playoffs. These lineup decisions may well be getting easier and easier if this trend keeps up.
Antoine Bethea, Colts - In the offseason I was so high on Bethea that I traded Tim Hightower for him straight up in two leagues. I can only claim victory in this deal because Bethea has survived longer on my rosters than Hightower, who hit the waiver wires a couple of weeks back. I like him and the other Colts DBs to stay busy against the Bengals on Sunday.
