    Sidney Rice to miss half the season 

    In case you haven’t yet heard, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Sidney Rice has had hip surgery and will miss upwards of half the 2010-11 NFL season. Obviously that means you probably don’t want to draft him for your fantasy football team…at least not until the last couple rounds, if you must. With Percy Harvin suffering with migraines, this means that WR Bernard Berrian and TE Visanthe Shiancoe (and Javon Walker?) will most likely be Brett Favre’s top targets heading into the season. Draft accordingly!

      I’m thinking Rice is still worth a late round pick. The guy was a force during the second half of last season, including the playoffs. I think if you grab him as your 5th or 6th reciever he can give you a nice boost at the end of the year when he returns. Your thoughts?

        It really depends on how your WR corps is shaping up in the draft by the time you get to the late rounds. I’d only target Rice if I my top 4 or 5 WRs were all relatively safe bets. In that case, he might be worth taking a flier on in case he’s able to come back and provide a late-season source of points.

      IMO – Shiancoe’s value just skyrocketed…. and I’d take Rice if he was still there in the 9th or 10th round BEFORE a defense or kicker. 🙂

      I’m with you guys on the Berrian and Shiancoe boat. I got Shiancoe very, very late. I’m actually pretty happy with my draft… what you guys think?
      qb – brees
      rb – shonn greene (and LT – who knows), pierre thomas, arian foster, jeromme harrison, anthony dixon (took your guys’ advice there too)
      wr – wes welker, hakeen nicks, jacoby jones (i like him better than the ever-vanilla kevin walter), robert meachem, devery henderson
      te – shiancoe
      d – bears (hey, ulacker’s back right? meh)

        Pretty solid squad you got there. Hopefully Hakeem Nicks and Jacoby Jones have big years and solidify your wide receiver position…then you’re on your way to the playoffs!

      I need help guys. My recievers are so so now that Rice is out and Vincent Jackson won’t play for less than 30 million garaunteed. Can anyone give me some advice on whether or not I should drop Rice or Jackson and pick up another receiver or two? The rest of my team I feel is soid.
      Peyton Manning- QB
      Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster- RB
      Vernon Davis – TE
      Minnesota D
      The rest of the receivers that I’m left with now are Brandon Marshall, great….Dwayne Bowe and Mike Wallace

        What receivers are available to replace Rice and V-Jax?

    • BASH33N 9:27 am on August 30, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Maclin, Berrian, Gaffney and all of the DEN receivers, Knox and all of the CHI receivers, Jacoby Jones, Kenny Britt, etc. Right now its looking like Maclin and Knox are the best available but for some reason I feel that Berrian could provide some points now that he moved up on the depth chart.

      • Brandon 9:31 am on August 30, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I like Berrian, Maclin, Knox and Jacoby Jones. The first move I would make would be to drop Rice for Knox. It seems that Knox will be the top receiver in Chicago and who knows how Rice will be when he returns from injury. Wait another couple days on V-Jax, but then give him the boot if nothing is moving on his contract situation and grab Maclin (I think I like him over Berrian right now.)

      Ok thanks a lot man. I’m going to look into it today. I know there has been a lot of hype about Knox stepping into a lead receiver role this year…but his projected states still don’t show it. I think Maclin will be ok this year too but I also realize that Jackson will be getting most of the deep ball looks for them. I appreciate the advice

    Ask the Geeks: Perplexed by the flex spot 

    Atg ButtonThis week in our Ask the Geeks post we take a look at the flex spot and who makes a good play:

    Paul asks: Hey Guys a quick ? for you, just finished draft I took Josh Morgan (Flex) to go along with Colston, V. Jackson, R. Williams and S Moss. Jamaal Charles and Donald Brown are still available. Should I add one of those 2 running backs and ditch one of the receivers? Thanks for your help and advice. have a good season

    Looks like Brett Favre won't be playing… 

    Looks like Brett Favre won’t be playing for the Minnesota Vikings this season, as he’s announced that he’s staying retired (although we’ve heard that before!) I have to downgrade Bernard Berrian and Adrian Peterson slightly if Favre is not the quarterback, as they need someone to take the heat off the running game and Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels are not really the ones to do it.

      I’m just waiting for the inevitable “…but then again, I do miss the camaraderie of the locker room…”

    Hits and Misses – Week 11: Turner the Burner ready to blaze! 

    Last week I came through with my second great feature pick of the season (I know, only two through ten weeks is a little embarassing!), as Vikings running back Adrian Peterson absolutely torched the Packers defense to the tune of 225 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. I ended up the week with a respectable 15-5-3* record, helped out by stellar, three-score games from Thomas Jones and Maurice Jones-Drew, along with a solid performance from Tony Gonzalez and a predictable, lackluster showing by Steve Slaton (could he be hitting the rookie wall?) Although the Jets passing game proved to be non-existant in their demolition of the Rams and Peyton Manning had a huge game against one of the better defenses in the league (ironically, his two best games this season against the Steelers and Ravens…go figure!), I still finished with some fairly good predictions and I hope to do the same this week. For week 11,  my sure bet is for Michael Turner “The Burner” to have a big game against a less than average Broncos defense in Atlanta this weekend, so get him in your lineup!

    • Michael Turner, RB, Falcons: I admit, I tried to come up with some clever saying here that some how involved the Broncos, Turner the Burner, and the game being a potential barn burner, but I couldn’t come up with some all that witty, so I ended up with the title you currently see on the post. Anyways though, continuing the trend (big games against bad defenses…poor games against good ones) that he has followed all season, you can expect big things from Turner this weekend as he takes on an Denver defense that is allowing 5.6 yards per carry. This should turn into a barn burner if all goes according to plan…and expect Turner to be right in the middle of the action. (More …)

      I’m pretty sure the running back who’s most “ready to blaze” is Ricky Williams…

      Couldn’t Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald have shared a little bit of the love with Steve Breaston?

    Guest Post: Adrian Peterson: 2nd Half Fantasy Star? 

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

    A Peterson%252Bweek%252B9Coming into the season, the expectations for Adrian Peterson were through the roof. After an extremely impressive rookie season, one in which he broke the NFL rushing record for a game with 296 yards vs. the San Diego Chargers, there was a lot of talk about 2,000 yards in 2008. The reasoning behind this train of thought was that last year, at the midway point, he had already eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark and if not for an injury, which threw off his momentum and kept him out for two games, he might have done it then.

    Fast forward to the midway point of 2008 and it’s a very different story. He’s still one of the elite backs in the game (823 yards, 6 TDs), but circumstances surrounding him have changed and they haven’t necessarily been for the better. (More …)
