<![CDATA[Busting Common Myths Vol. 2: Ty Montgomery Can't Handle a Bell Cow Workload]]>One of my fondest childhood memories is watching the show MythBusters. On it, 5 expert scientists come together to test common myths such as the spinning bullet myth, the myth that falling on water from a significant height hurts worse than falling on concrete from the same height, and many others for truth.

In the spirit of this show, I am starting a series of pieces testing common fantasy football beliefs for accuracy. Remember, in this series, we don't just tell the myths, we put them to the test!

<![CDATA[Antonio Brown has huge week]]>Antonio Brown was drafted 3rd in most fantasy leagues and he proved why his ADP is so high on Sunday. Brown hauled in 11 catches on 11 targets for 182 yards and no touchdowns. The only thing missing is of course a touchdown to complete a monster week.

The Pittsburgh Steelers started off slow offensively and barely escaped Sunday with a victory over the Cleveland Browns. In fact, Brown was the lone offensive player who did much of anything for the Steelers.

<![CDATA[Leonard Fournette ready for tough challenge against Texans]]>Leonard Fournette and the Jacksonville Jaguars have a very tough match-up in Week 1 against the Houston Texans. Despite the tough match-up, Fournette should be starting in all formats and will likely get 15+ touches in the contest.

The workload should be there all season for Forunette, but with a match-up this tough I would expect Fournette to be a low end RB1 or high-end RB2. We have him projected to get 15 touches and 74 total yards.
