    Reggie Bush out this Sunday? 

    Throughout most of his NFL career, I wouldn’t have cared a whole lot whether Reggie Bush played or not. However, now that I actually have him on my best fantasy football squad AND because he’s actually putting up decent numbers these days, I’m very nervous about the thought of him not occupying the W/R spot on my roster this weekend. It’s looking more and more like it’s heading that way too, with Reggie nursing a knee bruise. Not helping the situation is the fact that the Saints are undefeated and have no need to risk injuring one of their most dynamic players any further. Keep an eye on this situation until he’s ruled out for sure, but with such an enticing match-up against Tampa Bay, I won’t be happy if he takes the week off.

      Does that mean Bell becomes a decent option, or do you think PT still sees the majority of carries? (have Bell on my Bench)

        I still think the PT Cruiser sees the bulk of the carries. Mike Bell and Reggie Bush are very different in their skill sets and the fact that Bush is out just means other receivers will see the ball more often…not necessarily that Mike Bell will. It all depends on your other options though.

      As a pt owner, I won’t be happy if he takes off… I’ll be ecstatic!

        Bush is now officially out for the game. He didn’t get on the plane with the rest of the team.

      Tight ends, I think I’m going with Celek over Shockey this week, Good Idea? I have to pick up another RB, Options are Shonn Greene, Donald Brown or a couple others, but I don’t know who, most of them 2nd backs to the starters, any suggestions? thanks Jason

        Stick with the hot hand and go with Celek. He’s got three touchdowns in three weeks and has a good chance at a fourth this week. As for your running back options, I’m not high on Shonn Greene, who hasn’t done anything since his huge week seven game. Brown hasn’t done much of anything either with all his injuries and the fact that Addai still gets the bulk of the carries. None of the big pick-ups this week are available (Bernard Scott, Jason Snelling, Justin Forsett?)

      Here’s to hoping that Mike Wallace holds down the flex spot for me in Reggie’s absence!

    Not that it has any impact on fantasy football at this point, but it appears that the Buffalo’s recently-made-backup quarterback Trent Edwards could be on his way out of town soon. I just imagine him signing with a UFL team, then, along with J.P. Losman, causing the league to fold as everyone realizes that quarterbacks not good enough to play for the Bills are starting for half the league’s teams.

    Update: How valuable is Ricky Williams from here on out? 

    A followup to yesterday’s post on Ricky, where I concluded:

    What it all boils down to is this: tonight is huge for Ricky Williams owners. Carolina’s defense is fairly representative of the kind of mediocre opponent Ricky will get to face from here on out. If he goes out there and parties like it’s 1999 (when he was 22), I think we can all agree that he’ll belong in that top tier with the rest of the elite fantasy RBs for the rest of the ‘09 season. If Carolina shuts him down, we’ll know that Ricky can’t hack it on his own, and his owners had better hope the Dolphins can find a free agent capable of doing a halfway decent Ronnie Brown impression for the rest of the season.

    22 carries for 119 yards (5.4 YPC), two rushing touchdowns, and two receptions for 19 yards and another touchdown all add up to a pretty convincing argument: Ricky’s an elite RB1 for the rest of 2009. Like I pointed out yesterday, the Dolphins are built to run the ball, and the schedule is very favorable, with zero matchups against tough run defenses until week 17 (PIT).

      Maybe you’re a little biased because you have him in one of our leagues? Just sayin’.

      I bumped him up to top 10 after Ronnie Brown got put on the IR. He has more value than Ronnie Brown has ever had this year because he is the sole RB and it’s no longer a committee. With the 10th most favorable RB schedule of all RBs, and being on a run happy team, he has a chance to really put some points up. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him finish top 5 on the year.
