    Está usted listo para algún fútbol americano? 

    If that is not a proper translation, you can blame http://www.freetranslation.com. Anyways, yours truly will now be blogging live from Puerto Rico for the next two months. I am away on business, but don't worry, I'll still be able to post on a regular basis. They even have all the major American network stations down here, so I can watch the games as well (except I probably won't be able to see my Patriots play Cry). So when I'm not lounging on the beach with a glass of rum in my hand, I'll continue to provide up-to-date fantasy football analysis from a country that doesn't even play the sport…just for you!

      If I wanted a video of the Chargers defensive coaches making hand gestures, maybe I would have. They had the game on here in Puerto Rico though because it was a night game, so that was pretty kick ass. Plus they took the Chargers to school…BOOM SHAKALAKA!

    Ask the Geeks 

    Brandon's on his way to Puerto Rico for a work thing, so I'm going to handle this multi-question question:

    Dan asks:
    1. bulger or matt schuab for week 2?
    2. L.evens, t.bell, j.norwood (atl), or deangelo williams in week 2 for my final flex spot? this is a beautiful problem because i have moss,steve smith, and shaun alexander all obvious starts n still i have devery henderson and chester taylor benched
    3. owen daniels or alge crumpler in week 2?

    1) I'm not sure how much thought you put into this, but if you're really thinking about starting the likes of Matt Schaub over Marc Bulger, then it's either too much or not enough.

    2) Lee Evans belongs in your lineup this week as Pittsburgh's pass defense is nothing special. Bell's not a good start against the very tough Vikings run defense. Norwood and Williams split time and aren't great starts.

    3) Daniels. Stay away from Crumpler until we get a better idea of whether the Atlanta offense is going to come together in any way. 

    Brandon says: I have to agree with Matt on the questions regarding Marc Bulger and Lee Evans, however I can't agree on the suggestion to start Owen Daniels over Alge Crumpler. Even with a disasterous situation in Atlanta, Crumpler remains the only constant. He had 40 receiving yards last week (to Daniels' 14 yards) and should do alright against Jacksonville this week.

    Shaun Alexander: Still a solid fantasy start this week 

    Alexander (sprained left wrist) might not get as many touches as he usually would, and the Seahawks most likely won't run any of the new plays they're been working on to pass him the ball instead of fullback Mack Strong, but he's still a better start than any other RB on your team. Here's what coach Holmgren says about it:

    "We're being real careful with that," Holmgren said after a light practice in which Alexander clowned around with teammates, while participating fully with the first-team offence. "He feels really good about playing with that thing. He feels better.

    "And so they are going to rig something up during the game to allow him to play" Sunday at Arizona, he said.

    For us Alexander owners (I've got him in my most important league), it's a letdown when you figure that a) he won't be getting as many touches as he would otherwise and b) they'll most likely take him out if the game becomes a blowout in either direction, but you still have to start him.
