    The Wire: Championship, baby! 

    This season I’ve continued to tweak the format of the waiver wire list, so pay attention! I’ve organized it by position now, since that probably makes more sense when you’re trying to fill a particular position. In terms of the color coding: green are guys to target, yellow are guys that are less-than-spectacular, but you can plug-in if necessary, and red are one-hit-wonders you can ignore.

    Here is the waiver wire advice for this week in Google Doc spreadsheet format if that’s the way you prefer to digest it.

    Remember, Pickemfirst is a great browser plug-in to use with our waiver wire lists!

      My roster is pretty much set for the ‘ship. Just need to know if I should play Hakeem Nicks or Brandon Lloyd at WR2? Revis Island vs. Kellen Clemens..

        Can’t bench Nicks.

      Seattle defense, Cincinnati defense, Detroit defense, or Dallas defense??? Leaning towards Cincy D, then maybe Seattle D… I kind of want to start Seattle D but I’m a Niners’ fan too… -_-“

      This may seem silly, but Tarvaris (vs. SF) or Orton (vs. OAK). (leaning toward Orton after his performance last week…)

        Most definitely!

          I wanna get in that league if people are dumping quality talent like Cruz and Harvin.

            It’s good for you, but a sh*tty situation for who you are playing. In our league, we lock eliminated players from adding/dropping/trading players to prevent this exact thing.

            • Brandon 6:45 pm on December 21, 2011 Permalink

              I agree. I believe my leagues do it too. I dunno tho its never happened. I’m just saying why would you drop Cruz and Harvin regardless of whether your still playing or not? Must not be a keeper league?

      hi guys! thanks for all the advice! crucial championship week 16 decisions – been playing DST by WW this year w/ decent results.. in one league yards dont count, in the other they do.. how would you rank these options? Bengals (vs ARI), Titans (vs JAX), Redskins (vs MIN), Seahawks (vs 49ers) in both scenarios.. thanks!

      I’m in the championship game this week (thanks in due part to your advice throughout the year!) and I’m concerned about the Jets on defense. I’ve had my eye on Tenn (vs. Jac), Wash (vs. Minn), and KC (vs. Oak). Which of those three do you think are the best? Or should I stick with the Jets this week?


      • Collin 10:18 pm on December 21, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Also, out of Ryan Mathews, Reggie Bush and Michael Bush, which two would you play this week?

    Who made it to the championship? 

    fantasy football trophyJust checking if we managed to help any of our readers to their league’s championship games. Hopefully at least one of you did!

    I ended up in the championship game for one of the big leagues that Matt and I are in…and we play each other for the trophy! Check back later this afternoon for a post about the 2011 FFGeekBlog.com Bowl 🙂

    In my public league, I’m one game away from the championship and in the other big league Matt and I do, my team was one Hakeem Nicks dropped touchdown…or Nicks called back touchdown (as you can see, I’m not especially pleased with Hakeem Nicks!) away from the big game. Maybe I can pull off third place and get one of those fancy bronze trophy icons that Yahoo so graciously hands out though.

    Anyways…how’d YOU do?!

      I’m in championship in my hardest league. Rolling with hakeem nicks, romo, jordy nelson, mjd, shonn Greene, jermichael finley, seahawks d, then need to choose between mike tolbert, torrey smith, lance Moore (who I luckily started, whew), kahill guy from chi, lance ball, and Sammy morris I guess haha. Any thoughts?

        Yessir. Made it with Carson Palmer, Tarvaris Jackson, Jordy, L Robinson, McCoy, Foster, Finley, Nicks, Crosby, and Detroit’s D. Now I gotta figure out what to do with my WRs this week (Nelson, Robinson, Nicks, Decker, Manningham, Driver, Brown). Made it to the ‘Ship thanks to Detroit’s late TD; forced Palmer to throw and gave me a 4 point win (rather than a 1.5 point loss!!). Thoughts on my WR situation. Thinking of going with Nelson and Robinson. Thinking Driver cause he’s so close to his 10k career receiving yards benchmark, but don’t know if I will be putting “too many eggs in one basket” with 3 Packers (Nelson, Finley, Driver) this week. Thoughts?

          Neil, I started 3 Giants last week (Nicks, Cruz, & Bradshaw) and didn’t do so well as a result. My usual theory is that if they’re your best players, you might as well start them even if they’re on the same team. What happened to me is that Eli Manning kept throwing interceptions and giving the ball away, and as a result, it really hurt my fantasy production. But I think the Packers are generally a more reliable offense than the Giants, so you’re probably good to go. If it were me, I’d go with Robinson and Nicks.

            Thanks! Yea, I am probably going to stick wtih what got me the win this last week. Nelson, Robinson, and Nicks. Why change what has been working for so many weeks, right?

    • Christy 1:26 pm on December 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I’m in the championship in my easier league. I’m for sure starting Stafford, McCoy, Mendenhall, Graham, and Crosby. WR’s/flex and D are up in the air. I often start Wallace, Nicks, and Cruz, but I also have Dez Bryant & Ahmad Bradshaw. For D’s I have the Titans (been doing a defense-by-committee strategy) but after last week, I’m thinking of picking up the Bengals. Advice on my WR/flex situation?

    • Rich 4:16 pm on December 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I made the championship by literally a tenth of a point. I needed Gates to make 31 yards to tie it and he did. So, the bench determined the winner. I got rodgers, benson, blount, nicks, megatron, and sproles. I might put stafford in for rodgers.

    • Danny 9:32 pm on December 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Made the championships as well!! It was a competitive league with 14 teams…
      Phillip Rivers, Jordy Nelson, Victor Cruz, Dez Bryant, Ray Rice, Marshawn Lynch, Jermaine Gresham, Kahlil Bell, Peyton Hillis, and (hoarded 4 defenses to keep from other teams picking them up…) SEA d, DET d, DAL d, CIN d.

      I MADE IT!!!! One more win til the trophy!

      I lost in the Championship last season in one of my leagues and I made it again this year.. I lost my 1st game of this season and won my next 12 to grab #1 seed and 1st round bye and missed out on high points for the season by 4. My team isn’t as strong as it was since I lost Fred Jackson and Demarco Murray though..

      I have Tony Gonzalez and my opponent has Michael Turner and Roddy White so my question is whether or not I should roll with Matt Ryan.. Tebow got me more points than Ryan would have last week but this week I’m not so sure.. I figure ATL vs. NO will be a shootout so I’d be hoping for a T.Gonz touch or two and very little Turner/White..haha
