      QB dilemma this week: Can I trust Fitz this week or should I pick up Jason Campbell? Best available in my league. Kolb on my bench for bye week. Should I part with Kolb?

      I another league I have Rivers (bye) and Grossman on my bench. I am thinking I need to pick up a better backup. I think Campbell is available here too, but should I play Grossman? QB prospects low.

        i`d start grossman

      • Brandon 12:21 pm on October 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have no problem with you ditching Kolb at this point and pick up Best. Stick with Fitzpatrick. At QB I’d go with Campbell over Grossman this week (and maybe most other weeks too!) Good luck

          Well I didn’t see your post in time so glad I didn’t ditch Kolb this week. Jason Campbell out for season with broken collarbone! Grossman played GROSS today however! No Sexy Rexy today!

          Thanks!

          Maybe they heard he got another concussion and could possibly be headed to the IR!

      • Brandon 3:06 pm on October 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Nevermind about Best, leave him on free agency if it’s determined he’s going on the IR due to his concussions!

      should i start shonn green or darren sproles?

    • Bob 10:01 am on October 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Which is a better start, Jahvid Best or Dez Bryant?

      • Brandon 12:19 pm on October 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Dez Bryant for sure against possibly the worst pass defense in the league. Good luck!

    • james hance 11:03 am on October 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      i`d do dez because the cowboys are playing the patriots and the cowboys are coming off a bye week jevan best is very inconsistent, start dez bryant

    Steve Smith, Professor of Physics 

    Explaining why he slowed down as he crossed the goal line, drawing the ire of Saints safety Roman Harper who pushed him to the ground and drew a $15,000 fine from the NFL:

    “He felt that I was slowing down and trying to disrespect somebody and that wasn’t my intention,” Smith said. “With physics, when you accelerate at some point you have to slow down. So I wasn’t slowing down to hot dog in front of someone, because at the end of the pylons, you have to stop or there’s a large blue pad… that you will run into. So I was slowing down, not to disrespect anybody, but to decelerate.”

    Smith’s been giving lessons on acceleration to NFL secondaries all year.

    Yahoo’s (new?) weekly Flex position rankings 

    I’m not exactly sure how long it’s been available, but this week I just noticed that Yahoo is offering Flex rankings in addition to their normal weekly position rankings. The rankings aren’t done by their usual experts, but by something called the Crystal Ball Composite. The rankings also assume a flex position that is WR/RB/TE, which is good for leagues that allow tight ends in the spot. In the past, people have asked me to do something similar, but I’ll continue to just respond to flex-related questions in the comments. Anyways, check out Yahoo’s flex rankings if you want!

    Looks like LeGarrette Blount’s knee injury is a bit worse then previously expected. Apparently he could miss several weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, so hopefully you picked up Earnest Graham if you need help at running back!

      So Thomas is back from a bye and coming off an injury. Do you think he is a better bet against the Jets or do you think Best, who has been up and down all season, can make something happen this week against TB?

      • trade'em if you got'em 12:25 pm on October 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        correction Best plays against the 49s not TB.

      • Brandon 12:27 pm on October 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’m leaning towards Best until Daniel Thomas proves he’s back and healthy.

    • Wendy 12:35 pm on October 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Woo hoo! I was able to pick up Graham in one of my leagues after reading your waiver wire list. Also was able to pick up Torain in my other league; someone dumped him for the bye. Thanks for the advice! Keeping an eye out for the law firm’s injury to decide whether to start Graham or Ridley though….thoughts?

      • Brandon 1:40 pm on October 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Unfortunately I don’t have many more thoughts than what is out there for the general public regarding BJGE’s injury 🙂 Looks like he practiced today and his chances of playing are better, but you’ll want to check back tomorrow or Sunday morning for verification. If he plays, go Graham, otherwise go Ridley. Good luck!
