    In the Blogger League, I just accepted a trade, giving up Peyton Manning (gasp!) and Bernard Berrian for Ben Roethlisberger and Miles Austin. What does everyone think? I also have Matt Ryan as my backup quarterback, so I wasn’t too worried about depth there. My only real good receiver though was Chad Ochocinco, so now I have a solid duo there.

    Anyways, good luck everyone this week!

      Would need to see who your other WRs are.

        I like it! No real depreciated value at QB and l what looks to be a huge upgrade at WR. Nice trade!

        It’s a strange league where you only have to start 2 WR if you want…but you can start another in the flex spot. I also have Santana Moss, Mario Manningham, and Malcom Floyd on my team, so if necessary they can fill the flex spot.

      In the flex today could use some help, Jonathan Stewart, Steve Smith(NyG), McCoy or Holmes? thanks fellas!

      • Squish 1:36 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        With Westbrook unlikely to play, I like McCoy as your flex option. Steve Smith is a decent play too but normally it’s good to take an RB instead of a WR if only for the extra touches.

          Actually now that I think of it just go with Steve Smith. NYG is struggling but he’s still a better play than Moss or Moats.

          Woops! That post was supposed to go in the next set of questions, disregard it! Sorry!

    • Matt 2:00 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Good move overall. It’s a one-tier downgrade at QB and a two- or three-tier upgrade at WR. Austin’s the real deal.

    • Mal 10:09 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah if you need WR do it, that’s a good one. I just dropped Roy Williams on the waiver a week or two ago because he is next to useless. After watching Jacobs today, he can never churn out that many points with Bradshaw right there- I am really going to consider a Forte trade if the person is still willing to do it. I wish Jacobs had TD’d when he came up 1yd short. I hope I don’t lose after Turner posting me 29 points. Thanks for the 2 points Megatron…sigh.

      I missed Austin leaving the field- hope his injury isn’t bad for your sake

      • Mal 3:47 am on November 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        my bad was looking at Austin Collie leaving the field

      • Brandon 9:27 am on November 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Just read this comment this morning…and it scared the crap out of me! Good thing you meant Austin Collie though.

    Ask the Geeks – Week 9: Game-time edition 

    Again, before we get started with the questions, I just wanted to remind everyone that we’re running a contest for a $50 NFL.com gift card, which you can win by simply picking the quarterback who will score the most fantasy points this week. The entries will be cut off soon, so get your pick in quickly!

    Anyways, here are our final Ask the Geek questions for week nine. If you have any more questions, you can leave them as comments on the post and hopefully some of our excellent readers can help you out (if we’re not able to get to them.)

    Shirley asks…

    I have both Slaton & Moats in one league (non-PPR, start 2 RBs, one flex spot). Coach Kubiak announced that Moats would be the starter so should I start Moats and sit Slaton? My other RBs are Frank Gore, Ricky Williams and Beanie Wells.

    (More …)

      would you start jamal charles or steve slaton? non ppr

      • Squish 1:24 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Charles for sure. Slaton lost the starting job for this week.

      Brandon, I’ve got the Pats DST vs MIA or 49ers vs Ten. Who do you like? Thanks!!

      • Shirley 1:01 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think you’d have a better shot with the Niners defense. It’s possible Chris Johnson might run up a lot of yards on you (not quite as much as he did on JAX) but I don’t think Vince Young will be able to do all that much against the Niners. But Nate Clements is also out so it decreases the Niners D/ST value a bit.

        • Squish 1:23 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Play the 49ers. The Patriots just named their top two run stoppers inactive against a run happy team. Look for Miami to have a big day on the ground.

        • Squish 1:27 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Scratch that, I read it wrong, Miami is the one losing their two best run stoppers. I still like SF though since they make more big plays.

    • Shirley 1:04 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Brandon, I can start 2 RBs and a RB/WR in a flex spot. I was already going to start Gore and have Williams as a flex but I was wondering whether I should start Moats or Slaton in the other RB spot which you answered for me. My only other WR sitting on the bench (that’s not injured or on a bye) is Laveraneus Coles.

      • Squish 1:24 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Moats is starting over Slaton this week so go with him.

        • Matt 1:56 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yep. I wouldn’t trust Slaton at all – he’s in the doghouse.

    • Squish 1:30 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Maroney becomes a new sleeper this week with Miami naming two of their best run stoppers inactive (LB Channing Chowder and DT Jason Ferguson). Get him in there if you still tossing up the idea of playing him or another second rate back/WR. He’ll be a great flex play this week.

    • Jones 1:40 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Westbrook is looking doubtful to play. How does that change your answer to me above? I also have Moats.

      • Squish 1:44 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not one of the Geeks but given your time crunch I’d say take a chance on Santan Moss instead of Moats to replace Westbrook. Moats is a bit of a risk and Moss is playing in an offense that should have to pass a ton today.

        • Squish 1:46 pm on November 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Steve Smith is an even play too. NYG is struggling but he’ll be a reasonable play too. But definitely replace Westbrook. Who you replace him with is up to you but go with one of those two WRs. For reference, most have Steve Smith ahead in the projections.
