    Week 11 FAIL: Randy Moss to the bench 

    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 was the final straw for Randy Moss, in terms of me starting him for one of my teams. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, with the team playing one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL…and how does he reward me? Another goose egg. He’s on the bench until he shows something/anything.

    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)…

      Nearly my entire starting lineup. Frank Gore, Jahvid Best, Randy Moss, Zach Miller. Gore was consensus #1 this week by everyone’s start lists. 12 rushes for 23 yards. Suffice to say I lost badly this week.

        I only had him at #2! 🙂

        But yeah, he (and the rest of the 49ers) seriously disappointed. Randy Moss was a complete disaster though.

      Bench?? I cut him, which is what the Titans will do in another few weeks…..

      My team did great, my week 11 fail that cost me a win was playing Mike Thomas instead of Steve Johnson. I have to find a way to forgive myself today. It was a dumb last minute move.

        36 yards and a score from Mike Thomas aren’t too bad…unless you compare them to Steve Johnson 🙂 There was no way to predict that sort of outburst from Johnson though. 50% of the time you’ll get that decision right.

      Let’s see – I have a RB (McFadden), a TE (V. Davis) and THREE WR’s (Andre, Boldin, & Manningham) on this list. These guys wasted great efforts by Hillis and Big Ben. I lost by a very large margin!!!

      The Minnesota Vikings waived Wide Receiver Randy Moss just four games after they traded a 3rd Round Draft pick to the Patriots in order to land the veteran pass-catcher. Very shocking to learn about Moss release. Percy Harvin was injured during the Week 8 loss which means Moss would have been the teams only proven talent at WR. Fantasy Spin: Very Instead Moss will hit the NFLs Waiver Wire, but that doesnt mean he should be dropped from your Fantasy Roster just yet.

    The Wire – Week 12 pick-ups: Glorious Returns 

    As week 12 approaches, bye weeks are finally over and there’s a good chance your team is closing in on clinching a playoff spot. From this point on, 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. This week is headlined by a couple of wide receivers making their return to the playing field, Vincent Jackson from suspension/hold-out and Sidney Rice from hip surgery. 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…

      Would you guys rather pickup Hightower, Wells, Burleson, Ivory, or Balir White in a PPR league for the rest of the season. I’m leaning towards Burleson but I have to believe Wells will do something when he’s at 100%.

      • Brandon 9:53 pm on November 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Burleson…he’s the most sure thing on the list.

        • Squish 4:50 am on November 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I actually had Hightower already. In the end I ended up swapping Wells for Hightower, Burleson for Cribbs (Return Yardage League), and Cassel for McNabb to leave me in good shape for the rest of the year. The team (PPR) is sitting pretty currently:

          QB – Eli, Palmer, Cassel (for playoff matchups)
          WR – Roddy White, Wayne, Burleson, Williams (SEA), and Rice for insurance
          RB – Foster, Rice, Best, Wells
          TE – Winslow, Heap
          K – Folk (just for this week)
          DST – TEN only because Cleveland wasn’t available to swap.

          My WR corps has officially become target city with my 5 WRs racking up 49 targets last week! Not bad for a PPR team!

      hi Jack

      I know you are done w/ moss, but for a WR3, who do you play? Nate burleson, Amendola, donald driver, or moss?

      how does yahoo project keiland williams w/ 19 points, vs mcfadden, 11.85 or so in my league, and mcfadden is playing miami? so i have to start AP (finally, childress is fired, is it too late for AP?) and thought I could go jamaal in RB2 and mcfadden at flex. but what about keiland replacing either charles/mcfadden? or is that just foolish….

      last two i promise: Witten or Pettigrew on Turkey day?
      Kitna, dirty sanchez, josh freeman, or shuan hill at QB?

      thanks, and happy Turkey day!

        I’d go with Burleson against the Patriots, who have the worst secondary that I’ve seen in a long time. As for the flex, stick with McFadden. I know he didn’t do a whole lot last week, but give him another chance against a non-Steelers defense. As for the receiver and quarterback, leave a comment tomorrow when I put up the rankings and I have more time to do a little research 🙂

      Hi. Who should I start.. Bradshaw or Jacobs?? Jacobs gets the start this week. And Maclin or Manningham?

      • Brandon 10:41 am on November 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Jacobs and Manningham. Good luck!
