The play that was not at all conservative this week was the play of my fantasy team. I ended up topping out the league points-wise thanks to the amazing play of one Michael Turner, new starting running back for Atlanta. I picked up Turner in the 3rd round of the draft as my number 2 running back (I also have Marion Barber). Turner has been on my radar since my first year playing fantasy ball, when I was in dire need of a RB and picked him up off waivers. He was just the back-up to LT but he showed a ton of potential and I've been waiting for him to get a starting job. I was not disappointed.
Favre got a win for the Jets and Rodgers got a win for the Pack, so Mike was happy on both counts. I have a vested interest in Favre this year (though I can do with less commentary about him on all the pre-games and sports websites) because he is fighting it out with Eli for the starting job on my fantasy team. With Coughlin's play-calling, Favre may be safe in the starting job until his Bye.
