    Fantasy OVERLOAD! 

    I arrived back in Puerto Rico tonight, after being in Connecticut for the weekend, and man was I in for a surprise when I logged into my fantasy leagues. I recommend that if you’re in 4 fantasy leagues, you don’t log in halfway through the 4:00 games without having a clue what took place earlier. Just a few of the names that are blowing my mind right now:

    Kevin Curtis – 221 receiving yards, 3 TDs
    Anquan Boldin – 181 receiving yards, 2 TDs
    Brian Westbrook – 110 rushing yards, 111 receiving yards, 3 TDs
    Ronnie Brown – 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs, and a 2-point conversion
    Joey Harrington – 361 passing yards, 2 TDs (stats not all that great on their own, but I mean it’s Joey Harrington!)

    (More …)

      “Joey Harrington – 361 passing yards, 2 TDs (stats not all that great on their own, but I mean it’s Joey Harrington!)”

      Thats a good day for most quarterbacks .. 30 points is a good amount .. haha so true about the throwback uniforms

      I have a player who is trying anything he can to make me trade away Randy Moss to him so he can pair with his Tom Brady. Like I’m going to do that.

      Yeah, I guess I meant it wasn’t a spectacular day for most quarterbacks (not like a 6 TD performance or something).

      Hmm…at this point, viable trades for Randy Moss might include LT (which at this point looks like you’d be getting ripped off), Chad Johnson (plus someone else) or Peyton Manning (plus someone else?). I just did a quick calculation of Moss’s stats projected over the season and it looks something like this:

      117 receptions, 2150 yards, 27 TD’s, 1 MVP Trophy, and 1 Superbowl Ring

      Please excuse my co-blogger’s New England bias. If someone offers you LT or Peyton straight-up for Moss, do yourself a favor and hit the accept button as quickly as you can, before they get a chance to reconsider.

      The last trade offer was Peyton and two other players that I can’t remember for Moss. My fear isn’t making the trade because I think that Peyton would make up the difference in scoring, but giving the other player the Brady-Moss combo. That could possibly hand victories to him on a silver platter, so I’m trying to defend against it.

    Liveblogging the 1:00 games 

    I’m watching the Bills-Pats with one eye and StatTracker with the other.

      I didn’t come back. Luckily, I didn’t promise.

      You must have been super hungry. You probably didn’t want to blog about me beating your team for a second week in a row. Are you nervous that Brees might not get that 28 points you needed from him?

    Struggling with a decision this morning, might go with Plan C and slit wrists 

    This literally kept me up last night. I may need therapy. My squad in the "League of Champions" has an important matchup today: my co-Geek Brandon. I’ve got four WRs on that team (a bit shallow, I know, and something that’ll probably bite me down the road): Reggie Wayne, Chris Chambers, Jerricho Cotchery, and Jerry Porter. Wayne’s the obvious start.

    So far, I’ve been very pleased to watch Chambers and Cotchery live up to my pre-season expectations for them. But Porter’s up against Cleveland. It’s very, very difficult for me to bench the #1 WR on a team facing Cleveland, even if the guy throwing to him is a McClown. Chambers has a calf strain but it sounds like he’ll start; the Cotch Rocket has a shoulder injury and is listed as questionable. He’ll probably only stay in as long as the game is close, but the matchup with Miami’s corners is tasty and I hate to bench him.

    Right now, I’ve got Porter starting over Cotchery, but I just know it’s going to blow up in my face.
