    Tags: dish network   

    Just accidentally discovered that I get NFL Network for free through Dec. 25 thanks to a Dish Network “free preview.” Did I miss a memo? No complaints, of course – especially since my Bills are on this coming Thursday and they finally found a way to win a game in convincing fashion for the first time this season.

    Just thought I’d give a heads-up to any other Dish customers who, like me, had no idea they were running this promo. It’s channel 154.

    Cedric Benson is inactive, so get Bernard Scott in your line-up!

    Justin Forsett makes a great start for the Seahawks with Julius Jones sitting out today as well.

      Looks like Larry Johnson is poised to become the second second-rate RB to come alive in Cinci.

      I can’t believe Houston blew that lead!

      My rapidraft team had a great start to the week with the Packers defense (thank you mid-season defense hoarding!) . Then Schaub and Clark kept me on the board with big performances at their positions. Normally I’d be in great shape but with Benson out (my flex), I made the decision to play Shiancoe which looks to hurt me. Of course it’s not like I had a choice as my two replacements were Cadillac, Buckhalter, LJ, Coles, or Henderson. I’m crossing my fingers for s Shiancoe TD catch today. Looks like the week will come down to how well Chris Johnson finishes the day as he is the only ace up my sleeve. He needs to outscore what Forsett did earlier today for me to really gain any ground.

      Sorry I wasn’t around to answer many questions this week but with Thanksgiving I didn’t have much access to a computer. I’ll be sure to get back on the horse next week!

        Forsett ended up with a big day, but Johnson topped him!

          Actually, maybe he didn’t. Depends on your league scoring. I’ll hope for the best though!

    Ask the Geeks – Week 12: Thanksgiving Hangover Edition 

    Hopefully everyone’s Turkey Day hang-over is gone and all of the Thursday games left your team in prime spots to clinch the playoffs (or a BYE) this week! Here is the last batch of Ask the Geeks for week 12. If you have any last minute questions, feel free to leave them as a comment on one of our posts and hopefully Matt or I (or any of our readers) can get back to you with some advice before game-time. Good luck and may the fantasy football gods be with you!

    e-roc asks…

    If I win this weekend, I secure a playoff spot and possibly a Bye, so this is pretty huge…

    Please pick 2 RB: MJD (@ SF), T.Jones (v. CAR), McCoy (v. WAS).

    Please pick 2 WR: SSmithNYG (@ Den), SSmithCAR (@ NYJ), TJHoush (@ StL), Cotchery (v. CAR)

    Lastly, D.Bowe is a FA in our league… Would you swap any of my WRs for him? KC finishes Wks 15-17 with CLE, @CIN and @DEN. Thanks!

      Ok, so they are saying Michael Turner is a go. Problem is I don’t believe them. I have Snelling as well. I work today so my decision has to come by 0930…can’t watch all the sunday morning stuff. Who do I start, Turner or Snelling? Help!

      Hey PPR League need to pick 3 WRs out of the following…. Chris Chambers, Mike-Sims Walker, Michael Crabtree, Jeremy Maclin, and Santonio Holmes. I need this win, with it almost guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.

      What’s your take on Steven Jackson today? He’s active, but willl they really want to risk using him too much on a1-9 team? My other options are Charles, Cartwright, wells to start w/ forsett, or swap one of them with b scott vs cle (benson inactive today). Please help, I’m on I-94 for the neoxt 6 hrs….

      Would you start Hasselbeck or Matt Ryan? and Why?

      • Brandon 12:47 pm on November 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Matt Hasselbeck against the Rams who are terrible against the pass.

        Sorry about the Snelling pick, but even with negative points, he didn’t do all that much worse than Marshawn Lynch!
