    QB Kevin Kolb traded to Arizona Cardinals 

    The Arizona Cardinals finally got their man, trading CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick for Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb, who will immediately become their starter. The move has to make those thinking about drafting star WR Larry Fitzgerald feel a lot better.

    In other news, the New Orleans Saints found their replacement for the departed Reggie Bush, signing RB Darren Sproles. Not expecting a ton of fantasy impact here, but something to keep an eye on depending on how they use him.

    Would Larry Fitzgerald prefer the Cardinals try to trade for a decent quarterback in the offseason…or a new team with a decent quarterback trade for Larry Fitzgerald? (Hint: Patriots!)

    Drool-worthy matchups for the stretch run 

    With nine weeks of data in the books on this year’s NFL team defenses, it’s now pretty clear which matchups you should absolutely love to see on your players’ schedules for the remainder of the season.

    Passing Defense

    Worst of the Worst:

    Detroit Lions: They allow a whopping 263 passing yards per game, including games where they gave up 358 to Brees, 340 to Campbell, 358 to Rodgers, and 329 to Hasselbeck. And only the Titans (who I’ll get to in a minute) have allowed more passing TDs.

    Kansas City Chiefs: Only ten sacks on the season, second-worst in the league, and only three interceptions, which is obviously the worst. (Interesting aside – the Redskins, who give up the fewest yards per game, are tied with the Browns for the second-fewest INTs – just four.)

    (More …)

      Does this imply that you’re giving the edge to the Chiefs this weekend v. Oakland? Who’s going to suck less?

        I’d prefer to pretend that game doesn’t exist. 🙂

          A lot of my sources like Sidney Rice this week so think about taking him. Kevin Smith is the obvious option to me but I like taking a chance on Rice this week. You can’t expect much from Marshall against Washington’s pass defense and they should be WAY ahead all day. CJ hasn’t shown he’s fully healed yet so I’d wait to begin starting him again.

          So your real choices are Sidney Rice or Kevin Smith. The problem is that both of them have a downside. Rice won’t be getting too many looks because his team won’t need to pass and he’s got all kinds of competition at WR on his own team.. Kevin Smith gets looks but has done next to nothing with them. He has only 1 run over 20 yards all season and is averaging only 3.3 YPC. In the end I’d say take Smith if you only need 8 or 9 points (the highest projection I’ve seen for him in PPR is 16 with a low of 4) and Rice if you’d like more upside (I’ve seen PPR projections as a high as 24 points with a low of 7.8).

          My personal pick is Rice in both standard and PPR.

      Great post Matt. I’ve been tracking things more in my head but it’s really nice to see it all spelled out on the same page! I’ve definitely been planning to have these playoff matchups anywhere I can.

      As I said a few weeks ago it was a good idea to target Hightower who was low value then. I traded for him in several leagues and now my mouth is watering over his SF, DET, STL series of matchups which have Arizona as a team ranked in the top 5 of projected playoff fantasy scoring in every standard FF position.

      As it is now, for weeks 14-16 the top 5 at each position for projected (based on the average points given up by the teams on their schedule those weeks) are:
      QB – Hard to be able to do anything here. All the good QBs are already taken. However, Henne may be a viable fill-in down the stretch for Ryan and Orton owner’s (ranked 32nd worst and 27th worst playoff QB schedules respectively)
      1. SD
      2. MIA
      3. STL
      4. ARI
      5. NO

      RB – Watch the Jamaal Charles/Kolby Smith situation very closely. Go after Hightower if you can. I guarantee he pays off down the stretch. Also be the first to jump on Fred Taylor if he comes back.
      1. KC
      2. NE
      3. WAS
      4. ATL
      5. ARI

      WR – I’m ignoring STL and MIA because their offenses suck but at this point consider trading AJ or R. Moss for VJ or Fitz for a matchup upgrade down the stretch.
      1. MIA
      2. STL
      3. SD
      4. NO
      5. ARI

      TE – More or less doesn’t mean anything since they don’t have reliable options (save SF)
      1. TEN
      2. CIN
      3. SF
      4. ARI
      5. HOU

      DEF – Keep these in mind especially because a lot of them are available. I’ve had defenses in the Championship game win me as many titles as any other position.
      1. NYG
      2. NE
      3. ARI
      4. BAL
      5. OAK

      Anyway, just thought I’d add some stuff in. For a wider range of values go here:

          Thanks! I really just more or less combined data I found on different sites. No big hassle there. I meant to add kicker rankings but I can’t seem to find a way to edit my posts 🙁

        She’s awesome. I credit our “discovery” by the fantasy football community in 2007 in large part to the weekly link love she was sending us.

    Looks like Cardinals rookie running back Chris "Beanie" Wells will not be earn… 

    Looks like Cardinals rookie running back Chris “Beanie” Wells will not be earning the nickname “Mr. Durable” anytime soon as he’s re-injured his ankle and might miss another preseason game. I’m thinking of dropping him down the running back rankings and moving Tim Hightower up a spot or two, as I don’t trust that he’ll be healthy all season long.

      Yeah, that’s not at all something you like to see if you’ve drafted him already. Hightower could be a major sleeper.

      As a Buckeye-alumn & fan, this doesn’t surprise me. Fortunately, Madden 2010 has a “no injury” setting/feature…

    Guest Post: Week 10 Defense/Special Teams Fantasy Rankings 

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

    Must Starts:

    1127132157 49241. Carolina Panthers vs. Oakland Raiders. After last week’s 77-yard output by the Oakland Raiders’ offense can there even be a discussion as to who is the top pick this week? Look for the Panthers to get a commanding lead early and then get after QB JaMarcus Russell. We see Carolina keeping Oakland to under 10 points and racking up a few sacks and turnovers in the process. Top Defensive play.

    2. Tennessee Titans vs. Chicago Bears. If Orton were playing, Tennessee wouldn’t be so high on our list, but with Grossman expected to line up behind center, the Titans are a very attractive pick this week. With the return of a healthy DE Vanden Bosch, we like Tennessee to get back to its pressure ways and force Rex Grossman, who is no stranger to mistakes, into a few turnovers and sacks. A very strong fantasy start. (More …)
