    If there were any Michael Vick doubters left out there, watching him run past three Redskins defenders like they weren’t even there en route to his second touchdown in five minutes probably means there aren’t any more.

    I mean seriously: Holy crap.

    Week 10 FAIL: Peyton Manning. 

    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 the list is headlined by a couple Hall of Fame quarterbacks, but because Favre has been on the list almost every week this season, we’ll focus on Mr. Peyton Manning. Not a terrible game, since his team won and he didn’t throw an interception, but just 185 yards and no touchdowns?! Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Manning put up those kind of numbers.

    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, leads the pack!

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

      roddy’s game isn’t enough to swing a matchup.
      had AP, moss, steve johnson, witten, NYG DEF! for crying out loud, fitzpatrick, all failed. lost to the last place team, no longer in first. guess that’s fantasy football at its best for ya. Kitna and amendola on the bench.

      Peyton Manning, Aaron Hernandez, Steve Johnson.. at least Sanchez threw to Keller bunch of times although he couldn’t haul it in.

      After the very disappointing week last weekend, I only have one player on the FAIL list – Witten. I had Felix, Orton, Cutler & Nate Washington burning holes on my bench, but I had Big Ben, Hillis, SJax, Andre, Boldin, and Carpenter in the line up and all of them were in double digits or close enough that it doesn’t matter.
      I think Vernon Davis should have been included also, but his main problems were TD’s called back due to penalty.

    The Wire – Week 11 pick-ups: Did you survive the bye week blues? 

    As week 11 approaches, bye weeks are finally over and there’s a good chance your team is closing in on clinching a playoff spot. The trade deadline is most likely passed in a lot of leagues (or about to pass) and you’ll be relying on free agent pick-ups to get you past any injuries your team might face. So with that in mind, here are the potential waiver wire targets for the upcoming week. The herd is thinning at this point and you shouldn’t be relying on these guys to carry you through the playoffs, but maybe they can get you through to the next week. 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…

      Thanks for posting the Google Docs link. Makes my life that much easier.

      Hey guys –
      Which D/St do you like this week: SD, Cle, Atl, Ari, Sea, Oak, Stl, Indy. Playoffs are wks 14-16, any of those worth holding onto beyond week 11?

      • Brandon 4:24 pm on November 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I like Atlanta going forward. They have to play New Orleans in week 16, but it’s in Atlanta and they’ll be playing tough for a playoff seed.

      Is it crazy that I want to pick up QB Troy Smith?? I have Fitzpatrick and need some spark. My season may be down the toilet anyway.

      • Brandon 4:26 pm on November 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        It’s not totally crazy, but a little bit. I still don’t trust Troy Smith over a lot of waiver wire quarterbacks out there (Kitna, Cassel, Garrard, etc.) If your season is down the toilet though, give it a shot!

        • JM 11:03 pm on November 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Kitna, Cassel and Garrard have been long owned. McNabb and Hill are also available. What defense do you like going forward?? I have NYG but don’t love the schedule. Available are- NO, NE, SD, DAL, CLE, STL, Indy and MIA.

      Hey guys – TE is killing my squad (that and sitting Wallce on the bench in favor of R Moss!)

      I currently have Aaron Hernandez as my starter (had Finley so had to scramble)

      I am thinking of dropping Garcon in favor of picking up one of the TE’s you mentioned on your list. My recievers are pretty solid already (Megatron/Nicks/Wallace/R-Moss) so I can afford to drop Garcon I think.

      Would you recommend a bit of a stash hoping one of those guys steps up and can upgrade my at TE? And if so – who would you recommend with a move like that?

      • Brandon 9:02 am on November 18, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Brian, as for Mike Wallace, start him over Randy Moss every week from here on out. As for your tight end, I think you have to stick with Aaron Hernandez. He has upside every week and last week was his first 0 catch game of the season (not bad for a rookie.) You could risk it with Gronkowski, who has more of a chance to score a touchdown, but he probably won’t rack up as much yardage. Either way, I don’t think you need to stock pile tight ends. While Garcon has been a disappointment, keep him around just in case. Good luck!

      • Brandon 9:03 am on November 18, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Maybe you could trade Randy Moss to some guy who’s still a fan of him for a solid tight end? You could package Hernandez and Moss for Vernon Davis or something? Just a thought.

    Hey Yahoo, just because Aaron Hernandez didn’t catch a pass, doesn’t mean he’s a kicker who specializes in 30-39 yarders!

    yahoo facebook fail

    In case you were curious where this came from, I selected the option in my Yahoo fantasy league to link with Facebook so I could get updates on player scores there. I’ll probably disable it, as it’s just clogging up my Facebook stream right now, but I found this update a little interesting.

    On another note, why didn’t Aaron Hernandez catch a pass…while Rob Gronkowski has three touchdowns on five receptions?!!!
