    Week 12 FAIL: Chargers passing game goes AWOL 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week features an entire passing offense that I never expected to see here. Philip Rivers and the Chargers somehow managed to put up little-to-no stats in a game in which they thoroughly dominated the Indianapolis Colts. I guess when you’re running all over the opposing team and Peyton Manning is throwing pick-six’s, there is little need to risk it by throwing a lot.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…

      Man my fail list is sooooo LONG!
      DeSean Butter Fingers Jackson
      Steve Butter Fingers Johnson
      Chris WTF Johnson
      Mark C’mon Man Sanchez

      Me for not playing BJGE like I wanted to, but instead listened to all the pundits advice. Now I most likely will not make the playoffs. That might be a good thing, take me out of my misery.

      Don’t forget Qakland’s Darrin McFadden. Last 2 games were worthless. Against SD this week it will probably be the same.

        The only reason McFadden didn’t make the list is due to his solid day in the receiving game. I have him in a league where we get 0.5 points per reception, so his seven catches for 63 yards weren’t completely horrible. However, his rushing the past couple games have been absolutely atrocious.

        Funny, in a league with a flex spot, I have Chris Johnson, Ray Rice and Darren McFadden. I thought I was pretty much guaranteed a spot in the championship, but all three have been playing way below expectations. 🙁

      I can send you the list for my team if you want me to start the Week 13 FAIL post for you… Thanks Orton!!
      I still have hope though. Just need Welker to have 100+ yards and a couple of TD’s and I will get the win and bragging rights.

        Yeah, I’m putting the blame on Orton for costing me $100. If he had scored some decent points, I had a chance to win the regular season 1st place prize!

    The Wire – Week 13 pick-ups: Brian Westbrook is your man 

    As week 13 approaches, your team has most likely either clinched a playoff spot already or is fighting for their life. If you’ve already clinched, you’re just looking to best prepare your team for the playoffs, but if you’re still in the chase, you need any source of instant-fantasy production you can get! So with that in mind, here are the potential waiver wire targets for the upcoming week. This week’s list is headlined by the backup to a first round draft pick who is now out for the year…Frank Gore. As always, we’ve included the percentage owned (taken from Yahoo.) Take a look and see if any of these guys can help patch your squad together and carry you to the Promised Land…

    Frank Gore done for the year with a fractured hip 

    Pretty bad news if he was one of your top RB’s heading into the playoffs! Maybe there’s a chance some of the league has lost interest though and you can scoop up 1) Brian Westbrook and 2) Anthony Dixon to replace him?

    In other news, I’ve now clinched in all three of my good leagues, so week 13 will basically be a bye week. Anyone else got everything wrapped up with time to spare? It feels nice 🙂

      11-1 and sitting pretty, feels great. Just grabbed Westbrook, too.

      I almost – ALMOST – had Gore in a trade earlier this season. Kinda glad it fell through now. I feel bad for Gore and the 7×7’s. They can probably HOST a playoff game with an 8-8 record!

    Sorry NFL, but none of your paid professionals can match this interception from the Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State game…

    • Hawgman 5:57 am on November 30, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Too bad Oak State couldn’t pull out the win vs the Cheaters.

      what turned out to be a huge play and had to receive tons “heads-up play” comments; makes you think, would it have been “heads-up” had the defensive back tipped the pass in-bounds to the wide receiver and lead to the game-winning touchdown?

      • Brandon 1:42 pm on November 30, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Good point…hopefully he saw who he was batting it to and wasn’t just hoping for the best, hah.

    • Brandon 6:47 am on December 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I guess the NFL does kind of have the equivalent to this, only it’s the other team doing the batting…

    Is Matt Cassel an every-week starter at this point? 

    He’s still not racking up crazy yardage, as he lets running backs Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones do the heavy lifting, but he still swoops in when it comes time to score the touchdown. Cassel has now thrown 18 touchdowns in the past seven games and the offense is rollin’! The schedule from this point on (DEN, @SD, @STL, TEN, OAK) doesn’t inspire a lot of fear either, except maybe the game with the Chargers, so…are you letting Matt Cassel carry you to the championship?

    • Squish 5:59 pm on November 29, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I would if I could. I dropped McNabb for him in my money league last week for his strength of schedule down the stretch. If he can keep playing like this I’ll be ecstatic!

      btw, my twitter is FF_Guru. I’ll probably very soon start posting my progress on an in-depth fantasy football dictionary and handbook I’ve been working on for about a month if you want to follow. Currently there are 10 articles totaling 6000 words mostly dedicated to drafting (types, prep, strategies, etc.) at this point. I estimate it’s only about 5% of material I hope to cover before I consider the product finished but it’s a start nonetheless.

        Crap, scratch that my twitter is FF_Sage . I forgot I changed it!
