    Just got an e-mail from Best Buy:

    Your readers may be interested in the Best Buy Online Fantasy Football Challenge: http://www.bestbuyfantasy.com

    It’s a weekly fantasy football challenge where participants compete against celebrities to be entered into sweepstakes and win prizes. Every point by which the participant beats the celebrity grants them one entry into the weekly sweepstakes.

    We usually ignore these types of things, but I checked it out and I have to admit… it’s kind of a fun concept. I’ll gladly take on this Linkin Park guy’s team, if only for the satisfaction of beating the bassist from a gawdawful corporate “rock” band.

      Don’t be a hater just because his favorite team is the Patriots…you’re a closet Linkin Park fan obviously.

    Week 6 Defenses to Consider 

    Here’s a quick list of teams that are playing some of the lesser offenses in the league this week and who could be available in your league in case you were looking for a plug-in (with the percent owned in parenthesis):

    • Green Bay (74%) vs Detroit
    • New England (59%) vs Tennessee
    • Carolina (34%) @ Tampa Bay
    • Washington (33%) vs Kansas City
    • Jacksonville (21%) vs St. Louis
    • Tampa Bay (14%) vs Carolina
    • Kansas City (1%) @ Washington

      Carolina and Jacksonville are my options, which should I go for first? When I watched the Bills v TB, Leftwich just never took a sack, kept throwing the ball away to avoid them which was annoying.

      OK folks – need some perspective. Can a guy “loan out” a player to his buddy? A guy traded Ahmad Bradshaw for LT – who had a bye – then traded back today. Is this fair / ethical? Sorry to change subject.

        that’s not really legit. I wonder if the commissioner has a transaction history when it comes to objected trade backs.

          Guys in the league think its OK……if it were for money I’d be furious. But not how we are supossed to play, agree?

        This is some pretty shady business and if you were in a league for money, I hope the league would vote against the back half of the trade (where they trade the guys back), assuming you have league voting setup on trades.

      Anyone else have opinions?

      • Amir 12:11 am on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        we have veto power in our league — the trade takes 24 hours to process — if in that 24 hours 3 teams veto the trade then it gets canceled — that would probably solve your issue

      Re: Defense – I’m hoping to snag the Panthers v. TB given Johnson’s love for throwing INTs.

      Re: Trade – that’s ridiculous, especially since the Chargers were on a BYE. That trade should never have been approved… not sure how your league works (i.e. if the other owners have a say to keep things honest).

    • Scott 9:27 pm on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Owners didn’t know the intention to trade back at the time. But Thanks – Really!

      listen, i just traded LT for santana moss because i was soooo upset that LT was kickin on the bench the whole year, How much will i regret this? I have Marshawn Lynch, Steven Jackson, Cadiliac Williams, and Mike bell at the running back spot

      • Amir 12:12 am on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        haha it all depends on the week — I personally think LT will get the ball a lot the second half of the season so if he can stay healthy he should put up some decent fantasy points — santana moss on the other hand never has in between games — he will either have a great fantasy game for you or put up a goose egg — haha just hope Santana comes through when you need him

      • Brandon 8:30 am on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        The Chargers have been running the ball terribly this year and I’m not sure it’s going to improve a whole lot, even when/if LT is healthy. Although he’s probably a better option than all but S-Jax on your roster, the addition of Moss should help you enough to make up for it (unless you have better wide receivers and won’t start him consistently anyways.)

    FFGeekBlog.com moving up the ranks 

    Just wanted to give a brief update on the annual Blogger League that we’re in (and which is hosted by The Hazean.) This past week we played our second game against The Hazean, which seemed a bit strange to me considering there are 12 teams in the league, but was good anyways because we needed to avenge our loss from earlier in the season. We ended up winning thanks to Peyton Manning and the Giants defense (plus the Jets and Chris Cooley putting up goose eggs for his team!) This win was our third in a row after a rough 0-2 start and we’re now in third place. Let’s hope the good luck continues!

      The Blogger League has been pretty interesting thus far. No one is separating from the pack yet.

      • Brandon 1:46 pm on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I was going to say something like “just wait for a few weeks when FFGeekBlog is running away with it!”, but then I realized that Steven Jackson is my best running back, so I’ll stay silent.

      Very cool! I’m pulling for you guys. You quickly become my favorite of the bunch this season.
