First impressions are often very misleading in fantasy. At first glance, it appears starting Michael Turner against a Giants run defense that allows the 9th fewest fantasy points to running backs, is a bad idea. However, a Giants team that has many holes in their secondary, won’t be focused on Turner. New York will be scrambling to cover Roddy White, Julio Jones & Tony Gonzalez, leaving Turner with a favorable number of defenders in the box. That’s why I’m giving Turner the Green Light to be in all fantasy lineups this week. The same can’t be said for Reggie Wayne and Ryan Fitzpatrick.

We’ve watched half a season of football, and so far we’ve learned that we were justified in our concern about Cam Newton’s fight against history, and we were probably searching for reasons to worry when we wondered if Victor Cruz’s home run hitting would be a problem. Meanwhile, the battle between DeMarco Murray and trust is one that will forever be etched in mythical folklore.

None of that is especially surprising. Instead, a group of players have supplied the surprise. Many of them are rookies, and many were either available on the waiver wire earlier in the year, or at a heavily discounted draft price. So join me for a listicle, and let’s recount the top five surprises of the season’s first eight games.

Bill Parcells once said “if they don’t bite as pups, they probably don’t bite” when talking about his young franchise, a quote that still applies to the Indianapolis Colts, and especially this past Sunday.

The win was a special one, not only because it leveled their record for the season, but because of their absent head coach.

Chuck Pagano was was diagnosed with leukemia days earlier and forced to take an emergency leave from the team. In his honor, the team played their hearts out and were “Chuckstrong” during their comeback as they drove down the field multiple times, including a 13-play, 81-yard drive that used up nearly four minutes of the fourth quarter clock and sealed a win.

Due to the Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday in which we all celebrated the successful harvest of this year’s crops, your moving pictures of the week are a day later this time around.

Not to worry, though, because Brandon Lloyd’s goofballism is not bound by the constraints of time, and neither is Kurt Coleman’s shoe robbery.

Anyone you thought the Indianapolis Colts would defeat the Green Bay Packers should start asking for money in return for their picks, or be en route to Vegas to start a new career, or you’re just flat out lucky. But, if you actually thought Reggie Wayne would look like, well, the old Reggie Wayne today, I give you full props for that.

If you’re wondering just how good a day he had.

On the day, Wayne finished with 212 yards receiving on 13 receptions and one touchdown. Also, this…
