    Desperation is a Stinky Cologne: Deep Sleepers for Week 12, 2008 

    Attention, all ye 4-7 and 5-6 teams: The playoffs are officially here for you. Of course, this all depends upon your league’s settings, but chances are that if you’re even a smidge below .500 at this point, your only shot is to win out and pray that the tiebreakers work out in your favor. If you’re holding off on picking up a free agent because you’d have to drop that injured player who might be ready in time for the playoffs, it’s time to wake up and do what has to be done. Better to limp into the playoffs with a snowball’s chance in hell of winning than to miss the postseason entirely. (Owners of Carnell Williams and Selvin Young – I’m looking at you.)

    Here’s a look at some players who are owned in less than 50% of Yahoo and ESPN leagues and would make a decent play this week. The % owned statistic next to each player’s name is an average of all Yahoo and ESPN leagues.

    Quarterbacks

    Kerry Collins, TEN, 36% owned – Quick, name another MVP candidate who’s owned in just 36% of fantasy leagues. The Titans have been out to prove that they can win through the air, and this looks like another matchup that will lead them to pursue the same strategy. The Jets are tough on the ground but near the bottom against the pass, so expect lots of old-fashioned Vodka Collins action in this one. (More …)

    Studs and Duds – Week 1: Opening Day edition! 

    After months and months of waiting, prognosticating, and drafting many a fantasy football team, the day has finally come to get this show on the road! Tonight the defending Superbowl champion New York Giants will host division rivals, the Washington Redskins. Even though they’re the champs, I have a feeling it won’t mean much for New York in this one. It seems that every game in this division is a battle to the end and the G-Men will have to go into this one without their two leading pass rushers from last season in Michael Strahan (retirement) and Osi Umenyiora (injury), while also looking to a young tight end (Kevin Boss) to replace the disgruntled and traded Jeremy Schockey. As a Patriots fan, all I can say is GO REDSKINS! Anyways, enough of the ranting about a game I really don’t care all that much about, and on to some important stuff…like who you should feel confident starting (studs) and who you should think about benching (duds) for this coming week in fantasy football. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL???

    Studs

    Marion Barber (RB-DAL): This is Barber’s first chance to prove that he has what it takes to be a feature back, now that Julius Jones has left town, and it couldn’t have come against a better opponent. Last season the Browns gave up nearly 130 yards per game on the ground and that is the kind of production you can expect from Barber in this one (with maybe a touchdown or two). If all goes according to plan, Barber should be one of the top running back plays of the week. (More …)

      2007 Week 15 Brandon Jacobs ran for 130 yards against the Redskins and 3 catches for 30 yards. Game was at NY.

      @Jason: That’s true…and it was one yard shy of his career best apparently. However, he got 25 of the teams 28 rushing attempts, something I see changing a bit in this one with Ahmad Bradshaw helping out. We’ll see though…

      Hmm…Jacobs seems to be ignoring my prediction for the most part. Also, I didn’t know the Washington offense would be so bad this year!

      well, Washington looked terrible. Hard to say if the Giants are good or the Redskins are that bad. Love watching Jacobs run, though. Hope he stays healthy.

      @Jason: Yeah looks like my prediction wasn’t so accurate, but it didn’t look like the Giants were in a rush to use Jacobs around the end zone, which could be concerning. The Redskins just looked horrible on offense and I’m glad I own zero of their players on any of my fantasy teams. Jacobs is a bruiser for sure though…he completely destroyed that one defender that tried to bring him down. I wouldn’t expect him to rush for over 6 yards a carry all season long, but you’ll take it if you can get it I guess.
