Here are a few players that stood out in last night’s game for their performance:

Nate KaedingNorv Turner definitely has Nate on his fantasy team!! I love what Nate did last night, but it is not a great thing that he is the first guy in this post. It just means that we could not get the ball in the end zone and had to settle for field goals instead. Nate did an awesome job on the kickoffs, pinning the Raiders offense deep. He did shank one, but it rolled out to the end zone. Sometimes you get lucky!

Shaun PhillipsA pair of sacks in the game from SP95 to get him off to a nice start for the season. The defense had their ears pinned back and ready to chase after Carson Palmer toward the end of the game and he was the first one to get to the quarterback.

Donald ButlerButler led the team in tackles and added a sack to his stat line. This kid is going to get better and better.

Who were your standouts for the game?
