    Ask the Geeks: Week 4 

    Chris asks: Okay guys I’m stuck… My 3rd round pick this year was Drew Brees (unfortunately) and my backup is J.P. (once again unfortunately). Brees has a bye week next week and so I have no one. I am in a keeper league that charges $$ to pick up players. My options are Favre, Harrington, Pennington, and Edwards. What advice do you give me for my disaster QB position. I’m thinking about picking up two QBs and spending about $8 between the two.

    Matt’s take: I don’t really see Harrington or Edwards as viable fantasy options right now, so cross them off the list. I’m surprised Favre’s still available, and he’s the obvious pickup if you can get him; he looks better now than he has in years (though I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop and for him to throw four picks in a half). Pennington’s an option against Buffalo in week 4, but most weeks you wouldn’t want him in there.

    Brandon’s take: Don’t pay any money for Edwards or Harrington, as they will most likely not be starting in a few weeks. Favre is the guy to get here, as his wide receiver corps is finally getting healthy and looks like they’ll be pretty productive with Driver, Jennings and Jones. As Matt said, Pennington would be the second QB to consider.

    Proceed With Caution – Weak Plays for Week 4 

    My apologies for not posting my regular columns so far this week; I had jury duty and was actually selected as a juror, which was a ton of fun, except by "ton" I mean "load" and by "fun" I mean "shit." Not guilty on all four counts, if you’re wondering, due to a complete lack of any evidence whatsoever. Just a bunch of she-said, she-said between two charming young ladies who seemed to think they were on Judge Judy. Their boyfriends got into a fistfight in the hallway outside the courtroom just as things were getting underway. How it ever got to trial is a question I’ll be asking the Rochester DA, should I ever meet him.

    Anyway, here are the guys you might normally start, but may want to reconsider this week for one reason or another:

    Quarterback SHENANIGANS! 

    It seems that after this weekend, the world of the NFL quarterback was sent in a tailspin. Whether teams are considering a change at the position, teams are forced to replace an injured QB, or teams are trying out some new-fangled quarterback "package", it seems that no quarterback is safe…well except for Tom Brady and Tony Romo (and maybe some others). Here at FFGeekBlog, we figured it might be helpful to just give you a brief description of the quarterback situation in a few (it’s a relative term) locations. We attempted to organize the list from most explosive to least, so here we go…

      There are 5 houses in five different colors
      In each house lives a different nationality.
      These 5 owners drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.
      No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

      The CLUES:

      The Brit lives in the Red house.
      The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
      The Dane Drinks tea.
      The Green House is on the left of the White House.
      The Green House’s owner drinks coffee.
      The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.
      The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
      The man in the center house drinks milk.
      The Norwegian lives in the first house.
      The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats
      The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
      The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.
      The German smokes Prince.
      The Norwegian lives next to the Blue House.
      The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.
      The QUESTION:

      Who owns the fish?

    What the Deuce?! 

    Initial reports do not sound good on Deuce McAllister’s knee injury last night. Unofficial reports are saying that it is a torn ACL and that he could be out for the season. If this is the case, it could be devastating to all owners of Saints players, except maybe Reggie Bush owners. Bush will be counted on to shoulder more of the load in the running game, something that he hasn’t really proven he can do to this point. The backup to Bush will be Aaron Stecker, so he could possibly get more of the straight ahead running opportunities as the team likes to use Bush as a wideout frequently. Stay tuned for updates on this situation and if you own Deuce, make sure to pick up Stecker as soon as possible. As if the Saints didn’t have enough problems…
