    Attention all ye 0-6 and 1-5 teams: Drop the dead weight 

    It always amazes me how quickly the fantasy football season flies by. Given that most leagues’ playoffs start in week 14, next week’s games will mark the midway point of the regular season.

    If your fantasy team is at the bottom of the standings right now, you no longer have the luxury of waiting for high-ceiling players to pan out. Painful as it may be, it’s time to plug the holes in your lineup by trading your prized prospects for players you can start right away. From this point forward, treat every week like it’s your last – because realistically, if you lose, it probably is.

    Here are a few examples of high-potential players you might be hoarding on your bench, along with some potential trades you could offer for less-exciting players who could help you right away. (More …)

      Oh I was 0-3 and clawed back to 2-3 thanks mainly to Brandon and I went down narrowly to go 2-4, I am devo’d! Megatron injury owned me! Jacobs continually hurts! I ended up going with Northcutt as my fill in WR which wasn’t bad but Breaston (who Brandon recommended) would have just about won me the game. As an Aussie Sunday 1o clock games are 3am and he was questionable so I needed a sure thing, I should have just stayed awake picked up Breaston and if he was injured quickly dropped him for Northcut! Nooooo!

      This week, my waiver D? Pats, Bears, Panthers, Cowboys?

      SO DESTROYED! Have to turn it around! Cheers guys

          As much as I love the Pats D/ST against TB, I totally agree with Matt on the Panthers. If you’re 2-4, make a splash and take a chance on a big return with little investment. They’re disposable after this week, so keep picking up a D/ST with the best matchup week-to-week. Save your top waiver wire claims for your most needy positions.

      • Matt 9:08 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I hate to say it, but the Panthers could be in for a big week at home against the Bills, who will be starting either a concussed Trent Edwards or an unknown commodity in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Considering that the Panthers are second only to the Giants in stopping the pass and the Buffalo o-line is as green as they come, this seems like a situation ripe for QB turnovers and sacks.

      • Brandon 10:26 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with either the Patriots or Panthers…both should do well.

    • Mal 8:39 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Also my 3 top WR are on bye this week (would you believe it!)

      fill ins so far are
      Roy Williams
      Pierre Garcon

      need to pick 1 (possibly 2 if you think the above aren’t gonna cut it) more up off the waivers, who do you suggest, names available are..

      Mike Wallace
      Earl Bennet
      Ted Ginn
      Massaquoi
      Caldwell

      • Brandon 10:29 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Massaquoi and Wallace, although I’m not sure I’d start either over Garcon this week against the Rams. Go for Massaquoi and hope Derek Anderson doesn’t have another 2 completion day!

        • Mal 8:32 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Waivers went out before this I missed Wallace and Got Earl Bennet but Massaquoi still available, god Anderson better not dud it up again. I might be able to sneak a trade with house mate who has benched
          Donnie Avery
          Michael Crabtree
          this week. Either a better option?

      Another 2-4 team like me wants to trade a WR for an RB. In 9-deep bench/12-team league, I have DeAngelo Williams, Moreno, R Rice, J Stewart and K Smith at RB (my best WRs are Driver, Bowe and S Smith-Car); he has Ocho, Andre Johnson, Jennings, A Gates (only good RB Barber). Who can I get for Williams? Who can I get for Rice? We have a flex WR/RB slot so he’s okay with just Barber.

      You guys rock! Thanks.

      • Matt 9:13 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t trade DeAngelo Williams straight up for any of those WRs, even though I’m a big Andre Johnson fan; there would need to be some sort of package deal involved. As for Rice, you should be able to get Ochocinco or Jennings for him (I’d prefer Ocho).

        • Squish 6:59 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, Jennings or the Ocho for rice is reasonable. Try trading Kevin Smith for one of the two and you’ll get a major upgrade to your team.

    • Ken 12:33 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m 5 – 1 and 1 – 5 in my fantasy teams heh. For my crap team, would you suggest going for a big trade to try and salvage, or you think I can get by on my WR’s.

      QB
      Warner
      Cutler

      WR
      Fitzgerald
      Jennings
      Sims-Walker
      Breaston
      Hester
      Knox
      Hakeem Nicks

      RB
      Leon Washington
      Mike Bell
      Sammy Morris (waiting for the word on wednesday to drop him)
      Jamal Lewis

      TE
      Finley

      K
      Keading

      DEf
      NYJ

      Im hoping Ive beefed up my Receiver set enough to stay competitive and start winning, but you think I should try and pitch a big guy like fitzgerald for a number 1 RB if possible? Or perhaps a sims-walker for a number 2 back?

      Thanks!

      • Brandon 10:35 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would definitely try to upgrade at the running back position, as you’re in dire need of some help there, while you’re stacked at WR. Hakeem Nicks should be solid for the rest of the year. You might package Sims-Walker and Hester or something for a good running back.

        • Amir 4:30 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’m actually more of a fan of trading a Fitzgerald. He’s the biggest WR name you have out there and in many fantasy leagues the fact that hes Larry Fitzgerald and was drafted so early will get you the most value in terms of a trade

          Haha just my train of thought

        • Ken 4:35 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          yea thats exactly what I was thinking. Either trade Fitzgerald 1 to 1 for a solid #1 back, or sims and hester or sims and knox for a decent back. Thanks guys

        • Ken 5:03 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          fitzgerald and hester for MJD sound good?

        • Amir 11:24 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          i would go for it

    • Ken 12:35 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      just to clarify, my league is a ppr and has 1 qb, 3 wr, 2 rb and 1 flex spot, plus k, te, def.

    • Mal 12:40 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      i’d rank those WR

      Andre
      Ocho
      Gates
      Jennings

      However the first 3 are relatively effective where as Jennings is kind of stinking it up, so he should have the least trade value. Obviously you should try get what you can for williams in that order but with jennings being the most realistic. You probably already knew that though 🙂

    • Tom 1:19 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need a good WR, I’ve got C Johnson, Hester, Maclin, Gonzales, Cotchery, and Kenny Britt. Available are: Mike Wallce, Torry Holt, Steve Breaston, Mark Clayton, Jacoby Jones, and George Wilson..(of the upper stats anyway). What do you guys think? I’m 2-4 now and playing in a pretty evenly matched league. Around a 100 overall points difference between best and worst teams. I have Roethlisberger, Turner, Portis (regrettably), Hester, Maclin, T Gonzales, Packers, and Gostkowski as my starters… thanks in advance for any input..

      • Brandon 10:32 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Honestly, I wouldn’t drop any of those guys except maybe Derrick Ward and Dustin Keller. However, why do you want a hurt running back that plays for the Raiders?

    • Ali 11:56 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I am hurting on bye’s this week…. Mccoy has been sitting my bench the season. However, I have to play him this week b/c bye’s. Should I suck it up and play him or try and pick up: F. Jackson, M. Bell, J. Harrison, J. Fargas. K. Faulk and hope for more points?

      • Matt 4:37 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        McCoy’s not a good pick this week and if you can plug someone else in, you should. Most of the guys you named have a better shot of doing something in their games. Jackson could be a sleeper – I like both Buffalo backs this week as the Bills will probably try and run the ball as much as they can, given Carolina’s excellent pass defense and their shaky QB situation. He’s the best bet of the guys you named.

    • John 12:04 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      What is the outlook of Greg Jennings? especially with the influence of Donald Driver.

      I have MJD and MSW, and since I don’t want a RB and WR from same team, I’m thinking about trading MSW for Jennings? Is that a good trade based on Jennings’s future production?

      • Matt 4:44 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        MSW… MSW… took me forever to figure out that you meant Mike Sims-Walker. Shouldn’t a guy have to be on the scene longer than a few nanoseconds before he gets his own acronym? 🙂

        Tough call on that trade – I’d probably hold on to the guy you’ve got; Jennings is a question mark right now and Sims-Walker is suddenly the focal point of his team’s offense. Why don’t you want a RB and WR on the same team? There’s nothing wrong with that, generally speaking.

      • Squish 12:01 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d stand pat. You may be able to get Jennings for cheaper within the next few weeks and there is definitely nothing wrong with owning players from the same team. In fact, it generally makes the team as a whole more consistent which is a good thing.

      hey guys – steered me wrong last week 😛 but I will forgive and give you another shot (I’m still in 2nd place) — need help once again this week: standard non-ppr league chris johnson is on a bye – so I’m left with ronnie brown, benson, and felix jones – and WR’s are moss and colston (def starting them) and backups are walter and massaquoi..who should get that flex spot (jones, massa, or walter)?

      • Matt 4:49 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Depends on Jones’ knee. If he looks OK by Friday, he’s the best option of those three.

        • Squish 12:02 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’d say Massaquoi is the safe play.

      My other receivers are (no TEs): Brent Celek, Andre Johnson, Percy Harvin
      My other running backs are: Gore, Coffee, Jerome Harrison, Mike Bell, Mewelde Moore

      • Amir 11:26 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldnt do this trade — Brady and Moss seem to have found rhythm and if that continues Moss will be a top tier WR — I like mendenhall too but giving up Moss for him is just too much

    • Dan 1:32 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Given the match up that NE has i would not trade RM. And what do you all think? Breaston over Nicks for week 7? I don’t like the matchup that Breaston has. Going against NYG that is ranked number 1 in YPG or Nicks that is going against Arizon that is ranked 31 in passsing. i dont like that Nicks is in a time share with Manningham tho. What do you think?

      • Glory Hog 2:38 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Manningham is hurting a bit, so Nicks is a good start against AZ in my opinion.

        If i’m going to trade Moss for a RB I have to do it this week because the guy offering Mendenhall is screwed with byes and is desperate. I agree Moss will be huge this week, but is it worth getting Mendenhall as my RB2 with Gore since I my WR should be good with A. Johnson, Celek, Mason?

        I think there’s hope for this team. You might test the waters with Forte and see if you can package him into a deal for a RB who has been a more consistent performer – there may be an owner in your league willing to take a risk on him.

        Also depends how much risk you’re willing to take. See my response to CT above – Forte is a high-risk, high-potential player right now, with the risk being that the Bears might not figure out a way to run the ball effectively all season.

    Wide Receiver rankings for 2009 

    Here is our wide receiver cheat sheet for this season:

    1. Randy Moss, NE – With Brady back, expect mucho touchdowns again
    2. Andre Johnson, HOU – He’s a reception machine and racks up the yards as well.
    3. Larry Fitzgerald, ARI – The age of his quarterback scares me a bit, but Fitz is a monster and would probably produce even with Matt Leinart in the lineup
    4. Calvin Johnson, DET – The team HAS to do better this year and Megatron should see a boost in his stats
    5. Steve Smith, CAR – Injury scare seems to have passed.
    6. Reggie Wayne, IND – Should be one of the more consistent options on this list.
    7. Roddy White, ATL – He got his money over the weekend and immediately made an impact in the first preseason game. Any scare about White missing practices can be erased now.
    8. Greg Jennings, GB – He’ll be Rodgers top target all season long.
    9. Anquan Boldin, ARI – Saying all the right things and claims to be focused on helping the team win…not on getting more money.
    10. Terrell Owens, BUF – DOWNGRADE! As much as I think he would put up great numbers if healthy all year, I’m wondering if he’ll be able to stay on the field, as he’s already missing practices with a “bum toe.”
    11. Dwayne Bowe, KC – After being demoted to third string recently for attitude/weight issues, he had a huge preseason game and there’s no reason to move him down at this point.
    12. Marques Colston, NO – In this high-flying, pass-friendly offense, Colston should see the most passes.
    13. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, SEA – UPGRADE! Braylon Edwards and Brandon Marshall just keep making the guys right below them on the list look a whole lot more appealing!
    14. Chad Ochocinco, CIN – UPGRADE! He’s healthy this year and Housh is gone. I’m optimistic he can make the best out of the situation. Apparently he can even kick extra points!
    15. Wes Welker, NE – Last time Brady was at QB, Welker was a Pro Bowler with eight TD’s and almost 1,200 yards.
    16. (More …)

      Lee Evans is going to surprise the hell out of you. He’s in his prime and finally has a complementary receiver to keep teams from doubling him on every play.

    • Brandon 10:53 pm on July 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @matt: it’s not Lee Evans I’m worried about…it’s Trent Edwards. The guy averaged under 200 yards passing per game and less than one touchdown. He has to prove he can throw the ball to make me believe that both T.O. and Evans can put up stats this season.

    • Matt 8:36 am on July 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon: Hard to rack up the yardage when your receiving corps is the laughingstock of the NFL. Check out their receiving stats from last season. Lee Evans at #1, Josh Reed at #2, no surprise there, but then the next three top receivers are two RBs and a TE. The third-best WR had 232 receiving yards. The much-ballyhooed rookie wideout Josh Hardy had 9 total receptions.

      This is why I can’t help but like the TO move, despite how much I loathe him as a personality. If there was ever a team that was held back by a lack of quality WRs, the Bills were it last year.

    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 …)

     
    • E-roc 12:00 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      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.

      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!

      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!

      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.

      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.

    Top 25 scoring fantasy football players through 13 weeks 

    It’s been 13 weeks since the season started and four since my last posting of the top 25 fantasy football players in the game. As I mentioned last time, this is a list of the top fantasy football scorers so far this season, based on a non-PPR league that Matt and I are in, which follows near-standard scoring rules…

    Note: The number in parenthesis is the ranking of the player after week 9.

    1 (4). Drew Brees, QB, Saints: Brees has been a yardage and touchdown machine this year, even with his top receiver from last season (Marques Colston) out for a bit. I’m sure he helped many a team into the playoffs this season.
    2 (3). Kurt Warner, QB, Cardinals: Warner’s stats were pretty close to Brees’ and while he did throw less interceptions, he fumbled the ball a lot more. However, I’m sure he’s on a lot of playoff bound team’s rosters.
    3 (5). Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers: Packers fans can’t complain about the production they got out of the quarterback after Favre’s departure and they should be happy that they won’t have to worry about the position for another decade or so.
    4 (6). Jay Cutler, QB, Broncos: While I was expecting a bit more out of his “favorite” receiver Brandon Marshall, Cutler has been all that fantasy owners could have wished for.
    5 (1). Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers: He’s dropped off a bit over the past few weeks, but you can’t really complain considering the receivers he’s passing to. (More …)
