        It was funny because my buddy came over to watch the Patriots game on Sunday and we were playing each other in the first round of the playoffs. He immediately wanted to check his roster and make sure he had a guy in his line-up and when I tried to check for him on all my laptops, none of them could bring up the Yahoo page. I thought my wireless router had screwed up or something, but apparently it was Yahoo. Luckily for him he had the right guy in anyways (even though he ended up losing anyways!) but it was pretty funny

    @YahooFootball waiver glitch today 

    Hey Yahoo, you might want to fix this soon before you screw over everyone who needs to make a last-minute FA pickup today – all players are currently listed on waivers even though according to your rules they should be FA until 5 minutes before the first games start. It’s probably related to this:

    Update: The KC-MIA game no longer shows up as live, but all unclaimed players remain erroneously on waivers. Thanks Yahoo, you just cost me (and who knows how many others) the chance to make a couple of game-day adjustments that could end up being the difference between a win and a loss.

      How many points do you expect Robbie Gould to get me Monday night?

    • Mike 12:49 pm on November 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      ADVICE!!!! So my RB corp is dead / dieing. I have put together a trade that I am seriously considering. I have R. Mathews, A. Bradshaw and J Battle, M Colston, J Nelson, Crabtree, and A Brown, Jets D and Texans D.

      I will trade:
      A Bradshaw, M Colston, and Jets D

      I get:
      M. Turner, Sproles, R. Bush (or perhaps a WR#2)

      Thoughts???? The uncertainty and injuries of R Mathews and Bradshaw is killing me.

      • Jeron 5:07 pm on November 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Sounds like a good trade for you. I actually have most of those people on my team. Turner and Sproles can put up pretty consistent numbers and Bush is seeing a lot more action with Thomas being out.

        • Mike 5:08 pm on November 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          yeah, just get nervous letting Colston and the Jets go. Especially Colston he is my best WR.

          • Jeron 5:18 pm on November 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Yeah Jets D is probably tough to let go of, but Texans D isn’t too bad. Antonio Brown is getting a lot more targets since Mike Wallace gets a lot of the def attention. I say all in all, you’re getting a good deal.

            • Mike 10:36 am on November 8, 2011 Permalink

              hopefully this trade goes through but in order to cover my butt, i am trying to p/u another back off waivers, its between Helu and Tate, anybody have a preference one over the other?? (ps-i loathe shannahans RB plans, lol)

            • Corey 3:00 pm on November 8, 2011 Permalink

              I would say long term it’s going to be better keeping Tate. If they lock in a playoff spot and rest foster towards then end of the season he’s going to get GUARANTEED points unlike Helu/Torain/Choice going forward. Towards the latter parts of the fantasy year I start handcuffing all of my backs. Right now I have Mcfadden/Bush Mathews/Tolbert Foster/Tate Plus if anyone of them get injured I’ve got an instant fill in for them.

            • Mike 10:20 am on November 9, 2011 Permalink

              agreed. I picked up Tate. I had the tolbert/mathews pair but dropped tolbert earlier because of injuries, then mathews got injured and another guy picked him up to hold me hostage. 🙁
              If my RB would have staid healthy i could have been killing it, I just dropped from 2 to 6th this week. Need solid RB. I had J Charles, Hightower, Mathews, Bradshaw = Awesome. Now I have Mathews, Tate, A Bradshaw, and Battle. At least my receivers are good with Colston, JNelson, Decker, Brown, and Holmes. and Witten. lol

    First-Half Fantasy Player Awards 

    Biggest Surprise: Hard to go with anyone but Cam Newton here. He’s had a good deal of help from a re-energized Steve Smith, but the inverse is true as well – it’s so long since we last saw how dangerous Smith could be that the fantasy world had just about written him off. Those who took a late-round flier on him in keeper leagues have been on cloud nine all season. Honorable Mention: Jimmy Graham, Victor Cruz, Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    Biggest Flop: Again, an easy call – Chris Johnson isn’t just having a bad year, he’s having an awful one. The only reason he wasn’t benched weeks ago is because he forced his team to sign him to what looks like a ludicrous contract now. You have to wonder whether he somehow knew his best playing days were already behind him, making it imperative to sign a contract before anyone got the chance to see him play. Honorable Mention: DeAngelo Williams, Josh Freeman (a pre-season fantasy darling), Mike Williams (blame Freeman). (More …)

      Is Sam Bradford returning next week a safe bet? Wondering if dropping AJ Feeley now is smart.

      • Brandon 1:38 pm on November 1, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        That’s the word on the street. If you wouldn’t start AJ Feeley this week anyways, obviously you’re free to drop him.

      Who to start at defense. The Bears or should I pickup the Rams, Cardinals, Redskins, Colts or Broncos.

      Tim teebow, Josh Freeman, Carson Palmer Alex Smith or Sam Bradford which 2 should i keep im struglin right now

      • Mike 4:00 pm on November 1, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        thats tough. Tebow has good legs, and will get at least on the ground, but its a RISKY bet, especially given his last performance. Palmer could be good, but its still not sure if he will have any gas in the tank, or know the offesne well enough, Smith has been ok and he has edwards and crabtree back, Bradford has a bad line, but dude can throw, and he has Lloyd now. Freeman has been pretty good, and has a good match up vs NO. Id say Tebow and Freeman, but keep your eye on Palmer. Just my thoughts

      who is the better waiver wire running back for this next week…i am hurting with newton/smith and peterson out. my other RB’s are all banged up…hardesty, jones, McGahee. I have Maurice Morris…so i can play him…and if McGahee goes then i can play him too… i can go get Marion Barber, Chris Ogbonnaya, or even the lump – Kregg Lumpkin. also, need a qb…should I go Dalton? my QB choices are limited this week…travaris Jackson, AJ FEELEY, etc. what are your thoughts. i need a QB and a RB.

      how about cj200 for surprisingly frustrating flop with no keeper value making a statement about how much he sux. i just got offered DMC for CJ200 in 0.5 ppr.. about to click accept.. what do you think about their value for ff playoff schedules? im 6-2 now, hoping i have a good shot at making the playoffs so could potentially take the hit even if dmc didnt play this week.. but wk 14-16 for DMC’s is GB, DET, & KC while CJ has NO, IND, & JAX.. thanks!

        I wouldn’t. Wait until he comes back from his injury and see how it plays out. He might even play this week, so you’ll get an idea of where he stands.

      Which WRs should I start. 2WR and a W/T flex.

      Decker, Manningham, Nicks, JNelson, Antonio Brown. I am thinking Nicks, Nelson and Brown/Decker. Leaning toward Decker cause Brown is up against the Baltimore defense. Thoughts? (((I’ve got Heath Miller as my other TE (W/T flex)(Finley getting the start)))

    • Jeron 10:35 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Which defense is better to start: SF who has been pretty good all year, or DAL who is shaky at times but has a good matchup against seattle at home?

    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.

    Tentatively bullish on Jacoby Jones now that it sounds like Andre will be out for a few weeks. Oakland’s defense has been allowing 273 yards through the air per game, so this should be a good opportunity for him to show whether he’s a capable AJ replacement. I like him as a flex start this week.

    • Sal 9:58 am on October 5, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      ESPN Standard league – Flex spot: Darren Sproles, Mike Wallace, or Mike Williams (TB)? Just for clarity: Starting WR’s Wes Welker and Roddy White.

      I have Stafford and Newton as my QBs and I’ve been playing Stafford every week.. I’m going to start Newton this week so only address that if I 100% shouldn’t which I’m sure isn’t the case.

      I just realized they have the same BYE so I’m going to trade one to better my RBs so I was just wondering who you all thought would be a better choice to hold onto as my QB1 until further notice..

        keep newton i dont think stafford will keep it up newton is the #3 QB right now keep him

      So I have these RBs in a standard league: Chris Johnson, Jahvid Best, Cedric Benson, Joseph Addai, Michael Bush, Willis McGahee, Ryan Torain, and Deangelo Williams. I have a guy offering me Fred Jackson for two of those, and I think he’s particularly high on Torain. Which ones would be the best trade for me and which would probably be the fairest trade (so I know how far to go). 12 teams, standard format, no yardage bonus so touchdowns help. Thanks!

      • steeve 9:56 am on October 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Eddie, why does it sound to me like you have a lot of RBs for standard format? how many do you start? The most I’ve ever started in a league is 3….was just curious

        • Eddie 10:03 am on October 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I have way too many. I’m trying to get rid of them but can’t get any decent trades, and I think they all have too much value to drop to the waivers.

          • steeve 10:08 am on October 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            They definitely do.. I was stacked at RB in my CBS league and I ended up dropping M.Bush but I can only start 2 RBs max so it may be a different scenario..

            Did you work out the trade for Jackson?

            • Eddie 1:52 pm on October 7, 2011 Permalink

              I’m now offering McGahee, Torain, and Jacoby Ford for Fred Jackson and Mario Manningham – still a good trade for me, right? Is Torain overvalued right now or am I undervaluing him?

    • Mike 2:39 pm on October 5, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      So after tons of injuries, costing me my first 3 picks, I have managed to piece together what I think is a pretty darn good salvage team. However, I am not sure who to start over who.
      Here is my current starting line;
      M. Stafford (He has been a lucky pick/up and awesome)
      RB1) Ryan Mathews (Has exceeded expectation thus far and moved to my 1 spot)
      RB2) Ahmad Bradshaw (Steady and good)
      RB3) ?????
      WR1) Jordy Nelson (Everyone looks over him, but he keeps putting up numbers, I keep wanting to put other big names over him but cant)
      WR2) Percy Harvin (New p/u and does well, could be better)
      TE) Pettigrew (In for Witten, who is the MAN on BYE week)
      Defense) Giants (in flex for Jets)
      K) Rackers

      Knowing that, here are my other options, who would you choose to put in / is there someone you like better of; Mike Tolbert, Mar Colston, Deon Branch, Reggie Wayne, Matt Ryan?????

      PS I had Santonio Holmes and he gave me nothing, mostly cause of the line and Sanchez but I dropped him
