Giants tight end Larry Donnell lost his fantasy football game this week after benching… himself. Donnell lost his game by 15 points after deciding to start Vernon Davis at tight end over himself. Donnell had a career high 7 receptions for 54 yards and three touchdowns in his game, while Davis ended up leaving his game early with an injury. Had he started himself, Donnell would have won.

kickoffcoverage:

Rodgers named NFC Offensive Player of the Week
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told fans of the team to “relax” last week after the team had a subpar game in Detroit and fell to 1-2.
But on Sunday in Chicago the Pack was back as they went into Soldier Field and dominated the Chicago Bears 38-17.
Rodgers went 22-of-28 for 302 yards and four touchdowns with a passer rating of 151.2. Those numbers were good enough to earn him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors.
That’s the fourth-highest single-game passer rating in team history by a QB with a minimum of 20 pass attempts, and the second-highest of Rodgers’ career, behind only the franchise-record 155.4 he posted at Cleveland in 2009.
