On Casey Matthews, Mikel Leshoure, and Fantasy Football

Nothing here is specific to the Green Bay Packers, but these links got my attention.

Casey Matthews looks like Philly’s starting middle linebacker | ProFootballTalk. This one is somewhat specific to the Packers, who could use some more depth at inside linebacker. I do think the younger Matthews's "pro ceiling was viewed as limited" in comparison to his older brother, obviously a high comparison, but I think he plays like a young Nick Barnett. I don't think any team would be disappointed with a mid-round draft pick becoming an immediate starter for the next few seasons. 

Mikel Leshoure Tears Achilles, Out For All Of Lions 2011 Season - SBNation.com. There has been a lot of buzz about the Lions coming into the season, but their training camp has gotten off to a bad start. First they had minor injuries to DT Nick Fairley and WR Titus Young, two of their top draft choices. Now they've lost another top draft choice, Leshoure, for the season.

Though I'd take their rankings with a grain of salt. I don't know how Chris Johnson can be rated ahead of Arian Foster or Jamaal Charles
