    FFGeekBlog.com sponsorship 

    Check it out…FFGeekBlog.com is now sponsoring our first athlete! Although we didn’t pay a dime for the sponsorship, we still got our name down the sleeves of my brother’s biking jersey. You can visit his site at http://www.JohnKueter.com (it’s still in progress though, so don’t be too critical!)

    Bulger's out this week 

    Marc Bulger has been ruled out for the Ram’s week 13 game against Atlanta. Torry Holt becomes no better than a mid-range WR2, and Isaac Bruce barely even merits consideration at WR3, if you’re desperate.

    Ask the Geeks: Week 13 

    Natalie asks: Hey guys – I have to win this one to make playoffs. 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 flex. WR: Engram, Calvin Johnson, Marshall, Berrian, Chris Henry, Harrison (ug). RB: Addai, McGahee, Graham.


    Right now, I’m thinking Engram, Johnson, Marshall, Addai, and Graham, but I feel a little crazy for benching McGahee, since he’s been my one really consistent player all season. Thanks!

    Brandon’s take: That’s not a bad situation to be in Natalie, as most of your players are set up to have pretty solid games this weekend. I agre with your Addai, Graham, Marshall and Engram picks, but I actually think you could play Willis McGahee instead of Calvin Johnson in the flex spot. Odds are they will post similar stats, but I think McGahee is the most consistent at this point.

    Matt’s take: Calvin Johnson should have a very nice day against the pathetic Vikings secondary (I just can’t stop picking on them this season), so I think he’s the best start of all your WRs. I hate McGahee against the Pats; I’d leave him out of your lineup entirely and go with Addai and Graham at RB, Engram and Johnson at WR, and Marshall at the flex spot.

      Good thing I didn’t respond to this earlier (I woulda said Favre). How did you make out? Did you start Romo? Hopefully you did…I know I got screwed by starting Favre in one of my leagues this week.

    Rumblin’, Bumblin’, Stumblin’ – Fantasy Football Player Value Adjustments – Week 13 

    Here’s a look at the guys who spent their time in week 12 doing one of three things: rumblin’ up the player value charts with big performances, bumblin’ through a rough week and making their owners nervous, or stumblin’ so badly that their fantasy value took a major hit.


    Frank Gore, RB, SF: Gore ran all over Arizona, a team that up until last week had been pretty solid against the run. His 200+ yards and 2 touchdowns got him back in his owners’ good graces, as long as he can stay healthy (never a sure bet, as demonstrated when he aggravated his ankle in the first quarter – for once, though, he toughed it out).

    Ryan Grant, RB, GB: He looked good for the third game in a row, but keep in mind that this is Brett’s show, and the Packers are a passing offense, regardless of the score. He’s not always going to turn 15 carries into 101 yards (like he did last week).

    Studs and Duds: Week 13 

    Did you go and start Eli Manning last weekend based on my "stud" prediction? If so, you’re probably not too happy with me…but who would have known he’d throw 4 INT against the league’s worst pass defense?! I did make a few solid predictions though, as Favre and his receivers went hog wild against the Lions, as did Kurt Warner. The Dolphins running game was horrible, as expected (with a little help from the weather), and the young guns Brodie Croyle and John Beck were pretty bad as well. However, along with Eli, I must admit that I mad a few botched picks, starting with A.J. Feeley (come on…was I the only one that predicted a bad game here?) and Rudi Johnson.

    This week though, I have some suggestions that should boost your team in to the playoffs (if you’re not there yet), or move you to the upper seeds in your playoffs. If you’re out of contention already, than hopefully these picks can help you spoil some other poor fools weekend. Good luck to everyone and hopefully FFGeekBlog has helped you in some way to earn a playoff birth!


    Thomas Jones (NYJ): If Jones expects to score a touchdown this season, this might be his last chance. The Jets are playing a Dolphins defense that has allowed a rushing touchdown a game to this point in the season and last game these two teams played, Jones ran for 110 yards. Expect big things from Jones this weekend as long as the game is not played in 4 inches of mud.

    Justin Fargas (OAK): Fargas has been solid since moving into the starting role for Oakland and this weekend he should continue on that trend against a lowly Broncos rush defense. Look for 100 yards and a score from Fargas this weekend.

      who are your stud picks on defense(team)?

      any thoughts

    • Brandon 5:02 pm on November 28, 2007 Permalink | Reply


      Hmm…I guess in terms of trying to pick a few stud defenses that might actually be available on the waiver wire, I would say St. Louis (vs. ATL), San Francisco (vs. CAR), and even the New York Jets (vs. MIA). I think San Diego (vs. KC) and the New York Giants (vs. CHI) could also have big games this weekend.

      Hey guys,
      need some advice. The slots to fill are: 1 QB, 1 RB, 1 TE, 1 WR, 1 D/ST, 2 RB/WR.
      The Team is:
      QB: C. Palmer, D. Garrad
      RB: A. Hall, T. Henry, K. Smith, A. Peterson(CHI)
      WR: L. Evans, H. Ward, D. Stallworth, D. Driver
      TE: T. Scheffler, H. Miller
      D/ST: PIT, NYG


    • Brandon 1:21 pm on November 29, 2007 Permalink | Reply


      I’d go with Palmer (QB), Smith (RB), Miller (TE), Ward (WR), NYG (D/ST), Peterson (RB/WR), and Driver (RB/WR). Good luck!

      need some RB help for week 13. have collected many of late. my RB roster:

      Marion Barber III
      Chester Taylor
      Selvin Young
      Andre Hall
      Marshawn Lynch
      Samkon Gado

      Obviously Barber is in. And Lynch is most probably out. But everyone else is either a #2, questionable, or both. Any suggestions?

    • Brandon 2:40 pm on November 29, 2007 Permalink | Reply


      Wow, that’s not a situation I’d want to be in this week. I’d cross Andre Hall off the list, as it appears that T. Henry and Selvin Young are going to play. I guess if I were you I’d go with Chester Taylor. If Peterson returns this week, he’ll take some of Taylors carries, but running is one of the only things the Vikings can do well at this point, so both he and Peterson should get a fair amount of carries.
