It's indeed possible Green Bay Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers won't be able to completely heal…
Qualls' Fantasy Football Corner- Week Nine
2. Roddy White: White has been the go to receiver for the Atlanta Falcons. Although that may not mean a lot with the current state of the franchise, his numbers have been nothing to complain about. White has already contributed 679 yards and five touchdowns this year. After starting 2008 a little slow, White has been on a tear over the past few games. He has 100 yards receiving in four of his last five games and he has shown little signs of letting up. Last week against a stingy Philadelphia Eagles defense he accounted for all of the Falcons points with 113 yards are two touchdowns.
3. Steve Slaton: The Houston Texans have not been hesitant to use the young Slaton. Slaton ran for 118 yards against the Tennessee Titans. That is not a feat to be taken lightly. Against a tough Jacksonville defense he posted 83 yards receiving and a touchdown on 8 catches. Slaton is often described as a "poor man's Reggie Bush". If he keeps up his current play, it may just be the other way around. Like Rodgers, Slaton also faces a difficult schedule in the upcoming weeks. If he can fight through the adversity that is the Minnesota and Baltimore defenses, then he should finish the season where no one else expected, as a top 10 running back.
4. Vincent Jackson: While the San Diego Chargers have been inconsistent, Jackson has been quite the opposite. He has gained at least 50 yards in all but two games this season and against the New England Patriots he caught 5 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown. At 6-5 230, Jackson is a huge target. Philip Rivers is well aware of that fact and uses his size as an advantage nearly every game against the smaller cornerbacks. So far this year Jackson has been a vital cog of the offense. He has 538 yards receiving and 4 touchdowns on the season. Outside of one game (@PIT), he should have an easy time maintaining his superb season.
5. Jason Campbell: Last season Campbell threw 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions while losing 8 fumbles. That is not a very good ratio for a franchise quarterback. After being asked by the Redskins' staff to focus more and limit mistakes, he has returned in 2008 with a vengeance. As the Redskins stare down week 9 of the season, their quarterback has yet to throw an interception and he has only lost one fumble. Campbell's stats are impressive as he has thrown for 1754 yards with 8 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Few experts foresaw such a quality season from the young Campbell. Campbell's opponents are a mixed bag for the rest of the season. If he can limit his mistakes in the difficult games (@BAL, NYG), then once he reaches the easy portion (@CIN, @SFO) he should continue to be a fantasy gold mine.
