Fantasy Boom Drew Brees: Picked up right where he left off - 26 for 34, 358 yards, and 6 touchdowns. Yeah, it was against the Lions, but that's just silly. Joe Flacco: Ray Rice was supposed to be the big point scorer for Baltimore this week. He was good, but Rice didn't match Flacco's output (307 yards and three touchdowns). Thomas Jones: Might have to slow our roll on that Leon Washington talk. Looks like Jones could still be a No. 1 fantasy back after all (107 yards, two touchdowns)

SCOUTING REPORT Danny Amendola, St. Louis: The thought is he could become the Wes Welker new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had in New England. Thing is, Amendola already is. He had 85 catches last year, but for only 689 yards. Miles Austin, Dallas: Numbers slipped across the board last year after Tony Romo (collarbone) got hurt. But Romo has had a good camp and Austin's value is up. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City: He will have to find consistency to take that next step up the wide receiver food chain.

Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts finally scaled their personal Everest. Maybe now, after routing the New England Patriots, 40-21, last night, they will admit this could be a super season. Manning shrugged off his 0-7 record at Foxborough with an intelligent dissection of the two-time defending champions. Aided by star running back Edgerrin James' 104 yards on 34 carries, and 100-yard receiving games from Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, Manning led the Colts on six lengthy scoring drives and kept them perfect through eight games, the NFL's only undefeated team.

INDIANAPOLIS - Reggie Wayne will always remember last night's catch. The man with the expiring contract caught a 1-yard touchdown pass from Dan Orlovsky with 19 seconds left, giving the Colts their only lead of the game in a 19-16 victory over AFC South champion Houston. It's the second straight win for the Colts (2-13), who will have to fight off St. Louis and Minnesota for the No. 1 overall draft pick. Orlovsky, who played the last two seasons with Houston, also won his second straight game after losing his first nine NFL starts.

Something you might not know about me: I like stats. Stats are good. Stats are right. Stats work. And stats - you mark my words - will not only save your fantasy season, but they'll save that other malfunctioning corporation called the USofA. (Let's start with the fantasy season and get to the fixing-the-country part later.) Not too late but getting late early. The playoffs are the goal, and you need some tweaking lest you be tardy for the party. You don't need to get a new fantasy.

THE QUESTION of the week came from Joe Malizia, an old friend of the Fantasy Football department who is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Drum in upstate New York. He asked whether it was time to drop Colts running back Trent Richardson? Malizia, 40, grew up in Roxborough and is headed to Afghanistan for a short deployment after the first of the year. Fantasy has always been a way for him to stay tethered to family and friends back here. About 10 years ago, we wrote a story about an Oakland-based group that had a draft in 1963 and is widely considered the first fantasy football league.

If the Eagles had any interest in Reggie Wayne, they're disappointed today. The Indianapolis Colts' wide receiver, who would have become a free agent, agreed to a $39 million, 6-year contract yesterday, a move that makes him one of the NFL's highest-paid receivers and allows the Colts to use their franchise tag on another player if they choose. Wayne's deal includes a $13.5 million signing bonus. "He's thrilled, he could not think more highly of the owner, Jimmy [Irsay], [president]
