    Guest Post: Week 16 QB Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts

    1. Peyton Manning vs. Jacksonville Jaguars. As long as the AFC East teams keep winning, the Colts must do so, too. At least for one more week. And there’s nothing that Peyton and his teammates want more than to bury their rival in the process. Look for a big effort on Thursday night and at least 250 yards and 2TDs. Great fantasy start.

    2. Drew Brees vs. Detroit Lions. The Lions are just two games away from immortality, and one thing we know about them is that if they are going to pull off a win during the season, it won’t be because of their defense. Look for Brees to go gangbusters in this one and locate Colston, Moore, and Shockey throughout the game. (More …)

    Guest Post: Week 14 WR Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts:

    1. Randy Moss vs. Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have been getting lit up through the air, and until last week, Cassel was torching defenses as well. Look for Cassel to get back on track and for Moss to be the recipient of a lot of medium to deep passes. Strong fantasy play. 100 yards and 2 TDs.

    2. Marques Colston vs. Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are playing very well this year and are actually only one game out of first in the division. Regardless of that fact, very few teams have been able to stop Brees and his passing attack, and we don’t see it happening this week in the Superdome. Look for Brees and Colston to once again have big fantasy days on Sunday. 100 yards and 1TD. (More …)

      I have Wayne, Boldin, Brandon Marshall and Hixon.

      Which three would you start?

    • Josh 12:04 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      That’s a good problem to have… I’d definitely start Boldin – the Cards are always a pass first team. I’d also start Wayne because regardless of match-up, and the Colts could get an early lead and begin running the ball, he’s always a must start. So the dilemma lies with Hixon and Marshall. I think I’d lean on Hixon because he’ll be the Giants’ big play threat and he’s produced in all three games this year he’s started while Marshall has been quite inconsistent of late. The Broncos also have a good chance of playing with a lead and if that’s the case, you’ll see the ball handed to Hillis a lot. So Boldin, Wayne for sure, and then it’s a toss up with Marshall and Hixon.

    • E-roc 12:22 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks Josh. So the quandary still exists for me between Marshall & Hixon. I might look at the weather forecast or flip a coin…. and pray that Marshall doesn’t repeat his Week 1 performance.

      I actually have Hillis as well.

      Thanks again.

    • Josh 12:26 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      No problem. Definitely check for weather as I think it’ll be cold/windy/snowy up here in NY this weekend so that could affect the passing game. However, I do think the Eagles will force Eli to beat them as Arz/Wash have done in recent weeks, so that could bode well for Hixon. Do you have three quality tailbacks so you could just go with the two receivers or is Hixon/Marshall the better options at this point?

    • E-roc 12:30 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Our league set-up requires 2 RB, 3 WR and 1 TE. We don’t have a flex position…. The forecast looks better in Denver than NY/NJ.

      I’ve been playing running back roulette all season because I failed to snag a good RB in the draft (not even a Michael Turner, Matt Forte or Chris Johnson!). I’m sitting on Slaton & Hillis with Pierre Thomas & L-Wash. I wish I had better options, but I can’t really complain with a Bye week this week.

    • Josh 1:20 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      You’re looking good for the playoffs… Keep an eye on the weather, but I see Hixon getting at least 70 yards in this game and possibly a TD. Marshall might come back but opposing teams have been focusing more attention his way and that’s why his numbers have been down of late.

      I have a keeper league format question: This is our first year in the keeper league and we discover new unanticipated situations frequently.

      In our league we are able to keep 3 players from the previous draft’s rounds 1-10 (Regular Players) and 2 players from the previous drafts rounds 11-17 (Wildcard Players). FAs or Waiver Wire pickups act as your 17th round pick. Regular players are kept as 1st, 2nd, or 3rd rd picks the following year. Wildcard players are kept in the rounds you drafted them. Our regular season ended week 13.

      Owner A (did not make the playoffs) is dropping half of his team and picking up anyone and everyone he may think will serve as a Wildcard player. He currently has no defense or kicker. Many owners believe this is cheap and unfair. Do you believe setting a rule that “freezes” EVERY roster for keeper purposes at the conclusion of week 13 is appropriate? Playoffs team would still be able to make transactions but would be unable to keep new pick ups.

      Sorry for the length — I appreciate comments — Thanks!

    • Josh 2:41 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Your question is a bit confusing but I think that all keepers for the following year should come from week 13 and before. Once the playoffs begin, it’s another season and those players should be exempt from the keepers.

    • Dave 2:48 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes – without going into great detail its difficult to describe our keeper format.

      We just wanted to pass a rule that would prevent non-playoff teams from making unwarranted roster moves during the playoffs.

      I was just curious if other keeper leagues had similar rules that “froze” the rosters at a certain point during the season to prevent this problem.

      Thanks for the advice!

    • Josh 2:57 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, pass a rule that week 13 is the cut-off date. That will help solve any problems.

      QB: Romo or Thigpen? Even though it’s Romo, he’s playing the Steelers and so I’m leaning toward Thigpen right now.
      DEF: BAL (v. PHI) or ARI (v. STL)? The Ravens typically get more sacks and INTs than the Cardinals but the Cardinals are going up against the Rams…

    • Josh 8:31 pm on December 5, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Don’t play Romo. It looks like Barber will have to sit and Pittsburgh will destroy this offense if made one dimensional. It’ll also be 30 degrees or below.

      The defense is a bit more tricky. If Steven Jackson has a big role in the game, I don’t think the Rams will be as anemic as they’ve been. And for the Ravens, with Portis a non-factor even if he plays, they should be able to make life miserable for Campbell and the weather should be a factor too.

    • e-roc 9:37 am on December 9, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      So the correct answer was Antonio Bryant, Brandon Marshall and Anquan Boldin… Bryant went for 56 points in our league.

    • Josh 10:04 am on December 9, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, Bryant had a ridiculous game. He’s actually a solid play again as Tampa will have to pass in order to beat the Falcons on their home field.

    Guest Post: Week 14 QB Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts

    1. Kurt Warner vs. St. Louis Rams. Warner and his offense have had a tough go of it these past two weeks, as they were beaten by better football teams from the NFC East, but this is the week that we begin to hear the Warner MVP chants again.

    Heading back to Arizona, the hapless Rams come to town and bring with it its suspect defense. Look for Warner to locate his talented trio on the outside and eclipse the 300-yard mark with at least three TDs.

    2. Peyton Manning vs. Cincinnati Bengals. I’m not sure what happened on Sunday, but Manning certainly disappointed many fantasy owners with his 125 yard, two INT performance vs. the Browns. And since his defense couldn’t get off the field, he had very little time in which to work with.

    This week, back at home, we like Manning and his offense to bounce back against the Bengals and for the QB to throw for at least 250 with a couple of scores. (More …)

    Guest Post: Week 12 RB Fantasy Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts

    1. Willie Parker vs. Cincinnati Bengals. Parker came back with a strong effort vs. the Chargers this past Sunday, and on Thursday he gets the Bengals. Got to love that matchup.

    In what could be frigid conditions at Heinz field Thursday night, look for the Steelers to get back to playing Pittsburgh Steelers football and pounding away on the ground. And as the line begins to gel together, this all bodes very well for Parker. 100 yards and two TDs.

    2. Matt Forte vs. St. Louis Rams. Ok, the game by the Bay (San Francisco) last Sunday convinced me that the Rams have officially mailed the season in.

    After a few nice efforts that led to upsets over Washington and Dallas, the bottom has fallen out and this defense has given up 40 and 35 points respectively in the first halves alone of each of the past two games.

    Look for the Bears to get back on track after the debacle in GB and for Forte to be a major focal point of the offensive attack. 100 yards and two TDs. (More …)

    Guest Post: Week 12 QB Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts

    1. Drew Brees vs. Green Bay

    Once again, Drew Brees heads the list. This week the Green Bay Packers come to town in what should be a high-scoring affair. Brees has been a fantasy star the whole season and is on pace to break Dan Marino’s all-time passing record from 1984.

    And in this one, he gets his favorite short weapon back in the fold: RB Reggie Bush. This should open up the underneath passing game which in turn will open up the deep ball to Colston and Moore. Look for another stellar performance out of Brees and the offense. (More …)
