    Late round flyers 

    Just mentioned it in a tweet, but here are a couple names to consider towards the end of the draft when it seems everyone is doing their own thing and there isn’t as much competition for players:

    QB Sam Bradford – not getting as much love as I would expect at this point, could end up with numbers similar to guys going five rounds or so ahead of him
    RB Thomas Jones – solid backup numbers, doesn’t get hurt very often and is one injury from starting
    WR Nate Burleson – if Stafford improves, Burleson will be benefactor
    TE Aaron Hernandez – almost feel confident using him as his your starting TE, but you can snag him late as a great backup
    WR Jacoby Ford – should be top receiving option on Raiders, but kickoff rule change hurts his value in return yard leagues
    WR Steve Smith (both of them) – just seem to be available deep in the draft where their upside is worth the low risk
    DEF Detroit – maybe I’m giving them too much credit based on their dominance of the Patriots in preseason game, but they should get plenty of sacks and pressure on QB, which could mean interceptions and fumbles too

      Brandon Gibson was on the list previously, but he’s been hurt recently and I’m not sure what is going on with the Rams receiving corps at this point!

    If you don’t want to spend a high draft pick on a big name tight end (Gates, Clark, etc) then feel free to snag either of the Patriots young tight ends later in the draft. Apparently red zone target Rob Gronkowski is lighting it up in camp and Aaron Hernandez should be even better than last season when he had a couple issues with injuries and dropped passes. I expect pretty big things out of the Patriots passing game this year, with so many options that defenses will have a hard time covering everyone.

      So the addition of OchoCinco will not cut into these guys production this season? I just can not see both of these guys lighting it up like they did last year at this point.

        I am sure New England will continue using with their 2-TE formation a lot, and rotate between these two and Ochocinco.

        I guess Ochocinco could cut into some of Hernandez’s action, but these two guys are tough to cover and should get plenty of open looks. Gronk will get plenty of looks in the red zone no matter what receivers Brady has.

      I’d rather poke needles in my eyes than stake my Fantasy Football championship on who gets the ball in the Belichick/Brady machine.

    Week 10 FAIL: Peyton Manning. 

    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 the list is headlined by a couple Hall of Fame quarterbacks, but because Favre has been on the list almost every week this season, we’ll focus on Mr. Peyton Manning. Not a terrible game, since his team won and he didn’t throw an interception, but just 185 yards and no touchdowns?! Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Manning put up those kind of numbers.

    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, leads the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…
    (More …)

      roddy’s game isn’t enough to swing a matchup.
      had AP, moss, steve johnson, witten, NYG DEF! for crying out loud, fitzpatrick, all failed. lost to the last place team, no longer in first. guess that’s fantasy football at its best for ya. Kitna and amendola on the bench.

      Peyton Manning, Aaron Hernandez, Steve Johnson.. at least Sanchez threw to Keller bunch of times although he couldn’t haul it in.

      After the very disappointing week last weekend, I only have one player on the FAIL list – Witten. I had Felix, Orton, Cutler & Nate Washington burning holes on my bench, but I had Big Ben, Hillis, SJax, Andre, Boldin, and Carpenter in the line up and all of them were in double digits or close enough that it doesn’t matter.
      I think Vernon Davis should have been included also, but his main problems were TD’s called back due to penalty.

    Hey Yahoo, just because Aaron Hernandez didn’t catch a pass, doesn’t mean he’s a kicker who specializes in 30-39 yarders!

    yahoo facebook fail

    In case you were curious where this came from, I selected the option in my Yahoo fantasy league to link with Facebook so I could get updates on player scores there. I’ll probably disable it, as it’s just clogging up my Facebook stream right now, but I found this update a little interesting.

    On another note, why didn’t Aaron Hernandez catch a pass…while Rob Gronkowski has three touchdowns on five receptions?!!!

    Jermichael Finley possibly done for the year 

    Jan 10, 2010; Glendale, AZ, USA; Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley (88) during the 2010 NFC Wild Card playoff game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The Cardinals defeated the Packers 51-45 in overtime.According to some of my sources, it’s looking more and more like Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley could be out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury he suffered this past weekend. The initial report was that he’d miss a couple weeks, but more recent reports are saying that he’ll be out 8-10 weeks and possibly the rest of the year. Considering most fantasy football seasons are 15 or 16 weeks long, it’s probably safe to drop Finley at this point, as he won’t be useful for you until MAYBE during the playoffs…but you most likely won’t want to risk it when your season is on the line!

    The exception to this might in a keeper league (where I unfortunately have him.) However, I’m even considering dropping him in that league, since I just picked up Patriots rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez and might end up keeping him anyways! In case you were interested, Matt was the one who dropped Hernandez for some reason a couple weeks ago. Doh!

      According to various twitter feeds he’s out at LEAST 8. Just had surgery today. I think it’s time to drop him.
