    Hits & Misses – Week 5: Pierre Garcon makes the list 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week five, listing players you want to make sure are in your lineup, as well as those you might consider shelving for the week (or at least lowering your expectations!) As always, I’ve tried to leave the most obvious picks off the list, such as Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne’s scheduled abuse of the Titans secondary on Sunday night, so that I can save space for players that might have you scratching your head a little more. Anyways, here is your hits and misses for the week… (More …)

      I actually disagree with you concerning the Matt Ryan advice, for one major reason: Atlanta had a bye week. Matt Ryan has already proven himself to be a master student in the film room, and he’s had plenty of time to study up on the SF defense. Add this to the fact that 60% of teams coming off a bye week win, regardless of home-field advantage, and I’m comfortable putting Ryan in at QB.

      • Brandon 9:40 pm on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        We’ll see, but he’s still averaging only 216 yards per game and unless he gets a couple of touchdowns, his numbers might not be quite what you’re expecting. I’m not saying to bench him (see the introduction), but there’s no reason to automatically put him in your lineup if you have a better alternative.

      • Brandon 10:05 pm on October 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Looks like you were right in a big way! Not sure anyone would have predicted the complete dominance of the 49ers defense though.

    • Wolf 10:16 pm on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Seeing as how Randy Moss is up against a wall in this next game, I have an interesting choice to make. Do I keep him in assuming he’ll get a big play or two and come out with decent points or do I put in Mike Sims-Walker who is looking quite consistent so far?

      • Brandon 8:36 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That’s a tough one there. Who are your other receivers?

        • Wolf 1:51 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Steve Smith (NYG), Wes Welker, Hines Ward (all starting along side Moss) – Sims-Walker is on the bench.

        • southwick 2:05 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Wow Wolf, thats crazy. I have the exact same WR core, and the exact same debate – Welker (only 3 WR). I am as of now starting Moss/Smith/Walker, w/ H. Ward on the Bench. Personally my big question is whether to start Ward or Moss.

        • Wolf 8:28 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I benched Ward last week and played Vincent Jackson.. and of course Ward had a great game over 100 yards.. and Jackson was a bit of a flop. I’ve played Ward every other game and love his consistency. I’ll probably go with Moss knowing that he can definitely find the endzone on big plays and even though most of the balls will go to the others.. there will definitely be a few getting through to him. (I just can’t let there be a chance that Moss has a great game on my bench!)

          Is Steve Smith (NYG) still a solid start assuming he be covered by one of the best DB’s in the league ( Namdi Asumgha) and with Manning nursing his foot?

      • Brandon 9:00 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Moss, Ward, Steve Smith and Mike Sims-Walker. No need to play both New England receivers when they’re taking on one of the top defenses in the NFL…plus Sims-Walker has been great so far.

    • Mal 1:59 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Ah, I have posed this question to you Brandon earlier to which you gave a great answer, but now with Marshall on your Miss list and his potentnial replacement changing from Gage to Britt, still start Marshall ahead of Kenny Britt.

      Starting Jacobs+Burner this week (as usual). Although falcons facing tough 49ers running D, no need to replace him with Hightower? Too risky i believe? Cheers! Mal.

      • Brandon 9:18 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although Marshall has a tough matchup, I still like him more than Kenny Britt this week, as he’s more likely to find the endzone.

        As for your running backs, stick with Jacobs and Turner, who has WAY more upside than Hightower does on any given week, even if the matchup isn’t quite as good.

      do people not realize that garcon is mannings number 3 guy……i agree about holmes and jackson but what about T.O vs. cleveland he has had a rough start but cleveland isn’t necessarily the strongest team out there

      • Brandon 8:29 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think people realize Garcon is Manning’s number three guy…in fact he shares that role with Austin Collie. As I mention in the introduction of the post, I try to list some names of players who might be causing people to debate whether to play them or not, not list guys who they’re going to start no matter if I list them or not (Reggie Wayne, etc.)

    • J.J. 9:48 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m in hot water when it comes to RB’s this week. While I do have Adrian Peterson (must start against the Rams), I have Bradshaw, Kevin Smith, Ricky Williams, and Donald Brown and don’t know which 2 out of that crew to start. Am I just going to have a rough week?

      • Brandon 11:36 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        While he was nursing a foot/ankle injury all week, I think Ahmad Bradshaw should be a safe play with a solid matchup (just check up on him on game day to ensure he plays.) As for the other spot, they all have tough match-ups (Smith – PIT, Brown – TEN, and Williams – NYJ.) I’d go with Ricky Williams and hope he can find the endzone.

    • Rick Gershman 10:31 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hi, Brandon. Thanks for the great work. I have Brady and Big Ben, and I’ve keep starting Brady while Ben edges him every week, so I’m definitely going with Ben this time. If you don’t mind, tell me what you think of this: I have to start three WRs this week, and I have Boldin, Santonio, Sims-Walker and Garcon (and that’s not even considering Sidney Rice on my bench). Am I totally crazy for considering starting Garcon over one of the other three? S-W has been money every week, and Boldin and Santonio have great matchups, but… I just get the feeling Garcon will have a day that will far exceed one of those guys. :-0

      • Brandon 11:40 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would stick to your starters there, with Boldin, Holmes and Sims-Walker. While Garcon and the rest of the Indy has a great match-up with Tennessee, the only guy I would consider sitting for him would be Santonio Holmes, but he also has a great match-up this week and is also on the “hit” list. If Garcon blows up this week, you will have a tougher decision to make in the future, but I think for now you’re save with your big 3.

        As for the QB position, this would be a great week to start Big Ben over Brady, but I think going forward you’re going to still want Brady in there in most cases and his numbers should continue to improve all season.

      I have forte + rodgers on byes, Im starting big ben for rodgers and mendenhall for forte pick 1 rb westbrook,benson, or lynch. Also is playing s. holmes risky already starting 2 steelers. I also have sims-walker b. marshall thanks for your input

      • Matt 4:07 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Westbrook is healthy and will likely have his way with the terrible TB run defense, so I’d start him over almost anyone this week. I wouldn’t worry about starting three Steelers, since you picked the right three. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Rob 8:19 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I can only start 2 receivers and one receiver or running back. I am currently starting Moss and Sims-Walker and Coffee in the receiver/running back position. I’ve got Crotchery and Garcon on the bench. Thoughts on Crotchery? He’s been solid every week but the rookie QB and the new receiver makes me nervous.

      • DMANSTER 9:03 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Cotchery has been solid for me and it seems he and Sanchez have that “chemistry”. Success with edwards remains to be seen but I think it could open up the doors further for Cotchery since many pass defenses may key on Edwards.

      • Brandon 8:57 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If you’re feeling a bit risky, you might actually start Pierre Garcon, who has a great match-up against the Titans. Cotchery should do alright, but with Braylon Edwards coming to town, it’ll be interesting to see the impact on Cotchery. Either way though, Cotchery or Garcon should put up solid stats for your team. Do you need to bench Moss (Randy or Santana?) or Sims-Walker to play Cotchery or Garcon though?

        Unless you have Reggie Wayne, Chad Ochocinco and Andre Johnson as your other receivers, you most likely want to keep Steve Smith in there.

      I have Randy Moss and Brandon Marshall I am having trouble figuring out who to start. Can yall give me and advice to help me out?

      • Brandon 8:52 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, great receivers…just with bad matchups this week. I’d go with Randy Moss as he’s more likely to be used in redzone situations. Marshall has to score on long passing plays as the team goes to the running backs near the goal-line, however, the Patriots are great at preventing long scoring plays by receivers this year.

        • DFonz 8:53 am on October 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks for the advice and yeah this is a pretty bad match up.

      I’m kind of in a bind at running backs this week but i have AP in first spot but im in a fit on who to put second Fred Jackson or Bradshaw. Also should i start Santana Moss or put Cotchery in for him?

      • DFonz 1:40 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m going with Fred Jackson myself hes been reliable and I do not care if Lynch is back it’s going to be Jackson all the way

      • Brandon 8:49 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Bradshaw is a bit risky given that he’s recovering from a foot/ankle injury, so go with Fred Jackson.

        In terms of your receiver question, go with Santana Moss until you know how the Braylon Edwards experiment goes down in New York (and how it affects Cotchery.)

      • DFonz 1:42 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Slayton no brainer. A lot of people think Arizona is going to do great but Warner is hurt and so is breaston. Warner is going to get about 250 yds, 2 TD’s if he stays in the game. I dont see him going past the half

      • Brandon 8:44 pm on October 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with DFonz, go with Slaton. I think he’ll have a good game this week as he tries to make up for his performance last week (before he was benched, not the touchdowns afterwards.)

    Bad news for those clinging to hopes that Derrick Ward or Earnest Graham might have some fantasy value this year. Greg Olson, Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator, has stated…

    We went into the season kind of with the mentality of let’s work Cadillac in. Maybe we can rotate him with the other backs. But as good as he’s looked here early on in the season, I think it’s time we become more committed to Cadillac Williams as a full-time guy.

      Should I drop Ward for Antonio Bryant, Run DMC, Royal, Avery, Hixon, or Burleson? Also, should I start Tony Throw-mo or Garrard this week? Or should I drop one of them for Hasselbeck or the Dirty Sanchez? You guys give the best advice!

      • Brandon 8:48 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d drop Derrick Ward for Antonio Bryant (and should get better as he gets healthier), who has more value in that offense at this point. As for your quarterback, go with Romo, who is on my “hit” list this week.

        • Joe 9:35 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I have Manning, Flaco and Ryan as my QBs. I have been starting Manning and cant afford to keep Flaco sitting on my bench doing nothing. I am thinking about trading him for Jerricho Cotchery to because other then DeSean Jackson my WR position is weak. Is this a smart move?

        • Brandon 9:43 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Wow, that is a solid group of quarterbacks you have there. I’d definitely trade one of them for an upgrade at another position, but I’m not sure it would be Joe Flacco. Without the running game that took the attention off him last year, Ryan hasn’t had the same success. Is it possible to trade Matt Ryan for Cotchery or do you really like Ryan and want to keep him? Either way, I think this trade makes sense, as you’re going to have Peyton (that’s who you mean right?) in there almost every week anyways.

    • Joe 9:56 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Yes I have Peyton. I am thinking that the only time I would bench Peyton is on his bye week. I dont want to have Flacco sitting on the bench the whole season when I could use him to get a solid WR. I don’t think I could get as much for Ryan. Falcons are playing the Bears and the Ravens are playing the Vikings during the Colts bye week.

      • Brandon 11:42 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Good point, so in that case yeah try to get as much as you can from Flacco, who should have great trade value right now.

        As long as Westbrook plays, I’d go with him until Lynch proves that he’s an effective runner again. However, a match-up with the Browns does sound pretty appealing!

      Thanks guys. I picked up Harrison based on his match-ups later in the season (good bye-week filler).. I’m expecting a good performance against the Bills this weekend.

      • Brandon 8:57 pm on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        The latest news is that the Bucs might start using Cadillac more as the primary running back and less Ward and Graham, so it sounds appealing. However, at this point, I still like T-Jones a bit more as the Tampa Bay offense has been pretty terrible and I’m hoping the Braylon Edwards helps the entire Jets offense.

      I’ve been hanging onto Eddie Royal and Laveranues Coles since the draft and they’re both driving me crazy…both should be better than they are. Should I drop either? Possible FA pickups to fill flex (we have 3):

      Correll Buckhalter (injured?)
      Tashard Choice
      Mohamed Massaquoi
      Jamal Lewis (who I dropped previously when he got injured)

      • Brandon 9:13 pm on October 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        The word on Coles is that he’s all washed up, so he’s probably safe to drop for Massaquoi. I’d give Royal another week or two, but Sidney Rice should be a solid option for the rest of the season if Royal has another crappy game or two.

      • Brandon 11:47 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think Flacco IS the real deal, but I wouldn’t make this trade. You’re not improving enough at the QB or DEF positions to justify losing Roddy White, Kevin Smith and downgrading from Witten to Olsen. Would they do the trade if you took out the Witten/Olsen exchange?

        I’d go with LeSean McCoy and Tashard Choice, even if they’ll both be playing second fiddle to the starters if they’re healthy. Bush will apparently start for Oakland…but the Raiders offense can’t seem to do anything this year. Smith has a terrible matchup against the Steelers.

      last year, Ronnie Brown managed 27 yards on 13 carries against Rex Ryanโ€™s Baltimore D last year in Week 7 and 19 yards on 12 carries in their playoff loss to the Ravens. should bench him for one of the following: LJ, Ahmad Bradshaw, Pierre Garcon, Burleson, Antonio Bryant, Avery, Royal, Hixon, or Chester Taylor? Thanks in advance!

      • Matt 8:37 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think Larry Johnson’s an OK start this week, even though Dallas is sure to stack the line against the run just like every team has done vs. the Chiefs for years. Expect 70 yards and maybe a TD, which makes him your best bet out of that bunch.

        • Matt 8:38 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          To clarify – by “that bunch” I meant your alternatives to Brown. I’d still start Brown, despite his matchup.

      • Brandon 11:52 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Matt…stick with Ronnie Brown. I might argue that Bradshaw is a better start out of “that bunch” than Larry Johnson, but Brown is still the best option you have.

    • chris 12:13 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have a lot of byes this week. I’m stuck picking between Hightower and Chester Taylor (vs. St Louis) in a PPR league. I personally am swayed to Taylor because I’m thinking the game is going to get out of hand and they’ll sit Adrian, but that is a lot to hope for. What do you think?

      • Matt 4:10 pm on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        It’s always risky with Taylor since you really never know whether they’ll bench AP, but I think it’s a good bet that they will this week given the easy matchup and the return of AP’s fumbling woes. That said, Hightower’s a guarantee to get his hands on the ball a decent amount against the Texans (who just plain suck against the run), and I almost never pick a backup over a starter. Go with Hightower.

      Hi Guys! Excellent Blog!

      I have Wes Welker currently starting (2 WR league, no flex), but with his recent performances and his less than 100% knee and facing Denver away, should I be looking to Waivers to fill his spot? Luckily, I picked up Sims-Walker two weeks ago, but my other WR, Driver is on a Bye.

      Here’s who’s available on Waivers that are worth a look:

      Sidney Rice
      Kenny Britt
      Jabar Gaffney
      Jacoby Jones
      Austin Collie
      Davone Bess
      Bobby Wade
      Jason Avant

      1.) Should I bench Welker?
      2.) If yes, who would you recommend off Waivers?

      Thanks Guys!

        Stick with Welker. He isn’t as matchup-dependent as many receivers because he gets his fantasy points from lots of short receptions rather than depending on the big plays that dominant defenses are often able to shut down. As has become obvious this season, he’s an absolutely essential cog in the Patriots machine and their offense depends upon getting him the ball often, no matter who they’re playing.

      rivers is on a bye for me..going up against shaub…i currently have mark sanchez, but should I take a gamble on derek anderson?

        I wouldn’t. Sanchez is a decent start against the Fins. Anderson is still a huge question mark.

        Congrats on 4-0! Go with Santonio Holmes (riskier than Ward, but higher ceiling) and Steve Slaton and let’s hope you get to 5-0!
