    Yikes – Westbrook’s down and it doesn’t look particularly good. Nasty knee to the helmet collision.

      And… Never mind. Got up and walked off like it was nothing.

      HES DONE IT. Somehow held a 14 point lead with MNF to come up against Mcnabb (thank god for that flag on that 3rd down throw to Maclin that got called back!). I needed that win to stay alive.

      Thoughts on trading my Jacobs for there Forte??

      Also need a waiver D, options are

      I’d be hung up on to ascertain that too!

    More bad news for those who have Terrell Owens on their fantasy teams. Not only is he complaining that he “banged his knee a little bit” in the game this past weekend, but Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has stated, “Lee (Evan)’s been my guy when I’ve been in there,” will be the quarterback again this weekend when the team plays the Texans.

        Mike Bell and Jamaal Charles at RB, then Nicks, Crabtree and Sims-Walker at WR. For your tight end, go with Tony Gonzalez.

    Here is the fantasy football “Team of the Week” for week seven, listing the players that scored the most points (using standard scoring) for the current week.

    If your league doesn’t use a waiver system, you should be picking up Jets running back Shonn Greene this morning. It looks like Leon Washington will be out the rest of the year with a broken fibula and Greene will now be splitting carries with Thomas Jones. Given the opportunity this weekend against the Raiders, all he did was rush 19 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns…

      In a league where I have Leon Washington as a bench player, Beanie Wells is also available. Who should I try to go for? Him or Greene? (not a dynasty/keeper league and non-PPR)

        I think Greene is the way to go. Wells is competing not only with Hightower but also a pass-first offense. Jones and Greene are going to be relied on more and more to take the burden off of Sanchez’s sometimes iffy shoulders. With Jones at 31 you also have to consider the possibility that Greene might slip into the starting role with a late season injury.

        I’d def go with Greene as well. To add to what 12stepdrop said. the Jets O-line is going to help Greene out as well.

        My RB situation has been horrendous this year. Washington has been my RB1 or 2 all season, thats how bad it’s been. And I saw it get even worse when he went down in the game (best of luck to him btw, i hope its not career ending, that guy deserves to be able to continue what should be a great career and eventually get the paycheck he deserves) I picked up Greene 5 minutes later based on what I saw of him against the saints and figuring my running game can’t get any worse even if he does nothing. unfortuantely I can’t use the 26 points he put up this week, but with the way he played he has the potential to match or surpass TJ fantasy productivity level.

        Nothing is guarnteed, and it was ony the raiders. But still he did more with his carries then Jones did. If he can keep that up, he may not even need an injury to TJ to replace his as the number 1 guy.

        I may have just saved my RB situation by losing my “star” back this season hah

        If the choice is between Beanie Wells and Greene, your options are about even but I like Wells better. Word has it that he’s now the primary ball carrier in Arizona and will see the majority of the touches. Greene did all fine and well last night but don’t expect the Jets to do that well on the ground again anytime soon. As previously stated, Washington was a fantasy backup and so shall Greene be.

        Another reason to grab Wells is his fantasy playoff schedule which is pretty much the most favorable out of any RBs.

        That being said, it’s a good time to grab both of these guys for championship games as both of them will likely be starting that game with Greene almost guaranteed to do so since the Jets should clinch a WC birth before the final couple weeks.

          I disagree slightly here. Wells “may” have won a starting role. Hightower was pulled after the fumble, but Wells has had his problems with ball control as well and fumbled as well. Lucky for him it went out of bounds.

          Considering that, he may lose favor again with another fumble and you could see high tower replace him again. He’s seen more action then greene but has done less with it. And as 12step stated, he’s in a pass first offense. Meanwhile, with Washington out and Greene’s performance on sunday he’s gotta be guaranteed to split even with TJ

          Arizona does have a number of favorable rush games, coming sooner then the jets. But the Jets also have NE, Car, Buff in weeks 11- 13 right before fantasy playoff time. Those teams rank 22, 23, and 32 against the rush. Buffalo was the jets first 300 yard rushing game, and TJ, who Greene is closer to in style had 200 yards in that game. So the jets do have opportunities to reproduce sundays game before the playoffs hit.

          Beanie Wells might make more sense in the next 2-3 weeks, but I think Greene is the better fantasy option overall. And despite Mia and Jac as their two opponents in the next two weeks, if Greene’s performance level remains consistence, he could still post a decent 12-18 pt game in either of those two games. Well’s best post is 15 points in my league, and all other games have been 2.x. I’m going with Greene here.

        Hey Shirley, I’d go with Shonn Greene for sure. The Jets are a run-first team and Greene is their second option. The Cardinals are a pass-first team and Tim Hightower will still see a lot of the goal-line carries and third downs, since he’s a solid pass catching running back.

        Thank you everyone for your comments. I did have Greene higher on my list but someone higher up than me on the waiver order got him. Ended up getting Beanie Wells in two leagues though.
