    Attention rookies: The grades are in for the second marking period and report cards are on their way to your parents. Kenny Britt, just a heads up, you might want to intercept the mail and burn yours in the backyard.

      First off, some huge news!

      “RB Steve Slaton has lost his starting job to Ryan Moats for Sunday’s game at Indianapolis, according to a report by ESPN citing coach Gary Kubiak. Slaton was benched last Sunday after losing his fifth fumble of the season.”
      (Yahoo! Sports)

      Secondly, some questions:

      Pick 1WR+1 Flex (PPR):
      WR Santana Moss – Consistency issues
      WR Hakeem Nicks – Not enough targets for my taste but gets a long ball or two per game minimum. Hurts that Manningham will likely play this week.
      WR Devin Hester – His injury pretty much counts him out but he’s still an option for my team however bad
      RB Laurence Maroney – Will definitely get the workload and NE should be ahead early…
      RB Ryan Moats – Given the info above, could be more plausible than Maroney this week

      – Currently leaning Moss, and either Maroney (safe) or Moats (risky).

      Pick 1 QB:
      Hasselbeck – Can’t beat Detroit for a matchup but will he be protected if Detroit brings the pain?
      McNabb – Always plays well against Dallas and is definitely on a hot streak
      Schaub – 3 of IND’s 5 starting DBs are out and they will be starting two rookie CBs. If ever there was a situation ripe for a big game it’s here. But is it worth the risk?

      – I’m leaning toward taking a risk on Schaub (mostly so I can root for him in multiple leagues)

      Pick 1 WR (0.5PPR, 20 Return yards per point) :
      Nate Burleson – He’s an undervalued monster in my book. Should get at least 4 for 60 and has a great matchup. Could get a few punt return yards as well
      Mike Sims-Walker – Worth the risk? Should be good for 4 for 60 minimum. Definitely a flier.
      Johnny Knox – Should get at least 75 return yards but no more than 4 receptions for 40. The question is will one of those receptions be a TD?

      – I’m definitely leaning Burleson for consistency but the other two are great options as well. Not too big a deal since I have a huge advantage in matchup currently with Rodgers, Rice, Pierre Thomas, Dallas Clark, Welker, Tynes and GB defense starting.

      Here’s a fun one. Pick 1WR, 1RB and 2Flex (standard):
      QB Chad Henne – I’m not actually thinking of starting him.
      QB Alex Smith – Technically QBs in standard formats score more points than other positions.
      RB Ladainian Tomlinson – 2TDs last week. Back or not? Either way he plays the Giants defense.
      RB Cedric Benson – Against Baltimore but for the most part I have faith.
      RB Ray Rice – It’d be stupid to bench him after his role has increased.
      WR Miles Austin – Reliance on long balls worries me.
      WR Brandon Marshall – Not the best in his last two outings plus Polamalu is back.
      WR Housh – Great matchup but how much will they need to pass?

      – Let’s just say it’s a weird freakin’ league. Currently leaning Benson, Rice, Smith, Austin but was wondering mostly whether to replace Smith or Benson with Tomlinson or Housh.

      Pick 1RB, 1 WR and 1 Flex (standard 9 team league):
      RB Ray Rice – God in a football uniform
      RB Ryan Grant – Can’t beat the matchup even if an NFL team was playing a Europa team.
      RB Michael Turner – only a normal matchup
      WR Colston –
      WR Welker
      WR White – injured?

      – Currently leaning Rice, Grant and Welker. WR slot is the real issue.

      Anyway, didn’t want you guys getting bored tomorrow morning while waiting for games to start!

    I was just thinking, with the holiday season coming up, a $50 NFL.com gift card would make a great present for any football fan out there. Coincidentally, we’re still running our contest to win a free one, so make sure to head over and pick the top fantasy quarterback of the week for your chance to win it!

    Also, if you’re looking for some additional start/sit advice for this week’s games (maybe FFGeekBlog’s wasn’t enough for some crazy reason?!), try heading over to our friend the Fantasy Football Librarian’s site for some more suggestions.
