    Miami wide receiver (and the man who shares my name) Brandon Marshall has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Not sure what to think about that and how it affects his football playing, but you can learn about it in the video below. I guess it explains some of the interesting situations he’s gotten himself into throughout his career so far…

    Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall continues to tarnish my name with another offseason incident. He was stabbed by his wife over the weekend for some reason (not sure details have been released yet.)

      LOL! He didn’t do much for my fantasy football team last year either, but I still won the Championship! 🙂

    Brandon Marshall traded to Miami Dolphins 

    It’s a sad day when a player with your name (you’re obligated to root for him right?) is traded to a division rival of your favorite team 🙁 There’s no way I will be buying a Brandon Marshall – Miami Dolphins jersey!

    Anyways, I have to think that this move makes Chad Henne a viable fantasy quarterback next season…although it would still be best to have him as a back-up until you see what he’s capable of with a serious wide receiver in the mix. The Broncos passing game is downgraded tremendously unless Eddie Royal can figure out how to play football again. Poor Brady Quinn…just when he thought he might have a chance to succeed.

    FFGeekSmackdown Update 

    As I mentioned last week, Brandon and I wound up squaring off in the first round of both of our biggest leagues. Heading into the Monday night game, a split looks pretty likely. Both matchups are still technically up for grabs, but Brandon’s in better shape than me overall – his lead in our keeper league is pretty much a stranglehold, and it’s certainly within the realm of possibility that he’ll be able to overtake me in the League of Champions matchup as well.

    Keeper league (screenshot): All those years where Brandon kept drafting Brandon Marshall two rounds early just because he had the same name finally paid off. Breaston’s not going to get me anywhere close to the 29 points I need, I think that’s pretty clear. But I’ll probably break the 140-point mark for only the third time this season and still lose.

    League of Champions (screenshot): Andre Johnson came up huge; I just hope that plus the 5-7 points Crabtree will probably get me is enough to hold off Gore and Alex Smith. I’d be feeling a whole lot better if I’d started McNabb over Roethlisberger, that’s for sure. This is exactly the kind of decision that will haunt me for years if I lose this one – what the hell was I thinking starting the QB of a team on a downward spiral in zero-degree conditions?!

      I’ve never anticipated a 49ers or Cardinals game so much in my life! As for Brandon Marshall, I would feel a little guilty if you didn’t have Andre Johnson in the League of Champions…

    • Tommy 12:34 pm on December 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Traded Johnson a few weeks ago.. but still I got the better end…

      I gave
      Andre Johnson
      Greg Jennings
      Laurence Maroney
      Jonathan Stewart

      I got
      MJD
      Jamaal Charles
      Vincent Jackson
      Antonio Gates

      • Brandon 9:07 am on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, that was quite a blockbuster there. Charles has been solid recently though and as long as MJD and V-Jax step it up for the playoffs, I think you ended up on the better side of the trade.

      In hindsight, I wish I would have drafted Chris Johnson with the #2 pick… He was a 2nd Round STEAL in our 10-team league… I can only dream of a scenario where I could have picked from the 5th spot and snagged both AJ and CJ.

      • e-roc 2:38 pm on December 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Actually, from the 4th spot, I could have gotten Brees AND Chris Johnson in our league… Damn…

        • Brandon 9:06 am on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          (cue the song for Mr. Rogers “Land of Make Believe”) hah…but yeah as someone who has to play against Chris Johnson in the second round of the playoffs, I am NOT looking forward to it!

    • Squish 12:42 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      LOL at the screenshots! You want to see lame, my salary cap team had both Marshall and AJ playing lol. It was a good day 😉

    Here is the fantasy football “Team of the Week,” listing the players that scored the most points (using standard scoring) over the course of Sunday’s games. This week’s team is led by the man who shares my name, Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall, who broke the single season record for receptions with 21 in a losing effort to the Colts. Anyways, with the Monday Night Football game yet to take place (Arizona @ San Francisco) this list may be a bit premature, but here is your team of the week nonetheless…

      hey, brandon and matt! how was your weekend? i have some questions heading into the semis for you guys if you fancy. you’ve gotten me this far! upset of the year if a girl wins this league!!!

      – is joshua cribbs going to be an okay play against the chiefs in week 15? would you rather him or chris jennings?

      what about chambers/bowe against the browns?

      is maclin done for the next two weeks? if so, who replaces him in that high-flying passing offense: jason avant or reggie brown? also, do these past two weeks’ play make lesean mccoy fantasy irrevalent and, thus, droppable for cribbs/jennings?

      – I have Philly’s D up against SF… should i pick up SEA (vs. tb), GB (vs. pit), HOU (vs. stl), or CLE (vs. kc)?

      Thank you so much and have a wonderful week!

        I have a very similar look for next week after a HUGE win this week wooo!
        -How about Cribbs or Jennings against KC? Maybe play whoever gets starting nod?
        – What about Chambers against the Browns (not Bowe)?
        p.s. with the cribbs/jenning situation I have Forte vs. Ravens, Ganther vs. Giants, Cadillac vs. Seahawks…which two would you start? thanks

        • zach 6:17 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          …any advice guys?

        • Brandon 10:48 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, play whoever is deemed the starter for the Browns running backs. Chambers is a safer play over Bowe at the moment. As for your running backs, go with Ganther and whoever you go with from Jennings/Cribbs.

      • Brandon 10:47 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m hoping Cribbs works out this week, as I’m starting him as my WR3! I assume both he and Jennings will be used against the Chiefs. If you’re considering them for the flex spot and your league awards for kick returns, go for Cribbs. If you don’t get any bonus for kick returns, Jennings is probably the safer bet.

        As for Chambers and Bowe, stick with Chambers until you see how big of a factor Bowe is in the offense after sitting out for a few weeks.

        As for the Eagles receivers, neither Avant or Brown are really that appealing, but Avant is still my best bet if I had to pick between the two (at least for this week.) There’s gotta be a better receiver out there for you to consider though.

        Finally, at defense, I like Seattle this week against the Bucs. Hopefully this helped and good luck!

      finley or fred davis this week at tight end?

      • Brandon 10:40 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m going with Fred Davis this week. The Giants are one of the worst teams in the league against the tight end position and Davis has been a touchdown machine lately.

      • Brandon 10:40 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Nice name by the way!

    • TJ 1:38 pm on December 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey guys, made it through but next week I’m up against Ray Rice vs Bears & Warner @ Detroit, & the New Brandon Marshall – and my matchups aren’t great, so could use some help!

      WRs: Welker, Austin, SmithNYG, MSW, Ocho
      Feeling a lot less stellar about them this week, given MSW & Ocho’s trends, Smith’s lack of TDs, Brady & Dallas inconsistencies.

      RBs: SJax, Wells, Charles, Fred Jackson, Forsett
      SJax may finally be near done (bad back + meaningless games), so there goes my #1 guy. Wells has Det at least, Charles has CLE (but PIT couldn’t run on them last week…)

      The big question: I find it hard to trust any Cleveland Brown this year, (and I’m a Browns fan), but it looks like they’re finally really using Cribbs in the running game. He’s listed as a WR in our league, so I could swap him for one of my WR (returns: points for TD, none for yards). I know this completely flies in the face of “go with the guys who got you there”, but I’m just not feeling too confident right now. Talk me down?

      • TJ 3:08 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        And also: Reggie Bush is available FA – worth a swap for one of the above RBs?

        • Brandon 10:56 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Grab Reggie Bush for Justin Forsett if you still have the chance!

      • Brandon 11:07 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        At wide receiver I’d stick with your “inconsistencies”: Welker and Austin, as well as Steve Smith, who is getting a lot of looks each week. As for your running backs, I’d still keep Steven Jackson in there, along with Jamaal Charles, who is on fire lately.

        Cribbs is intriguing, but I don’t see how you can start him over Steve Smith, considering he really only has value if he can break open a few runs on his own. Smith has a chance for a long bomb from Eli Manning at any moment.

          Thanks, Brandon. One more question – At TE do you like Witten, Shiancoe, or Fred Davis?

        • Brandon 8:18 am on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I actually like Fred Davis over the other two, which is a bit surprising. Witten had a few good games recently, but last week he returned to his 5-catch-50-yard-2009-self. Davis has a great match-up with a Giants team that is pretty bad defending the tight end position and he has racked up the touchdowns in the past couple weeks.

        • TJ 12:34 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks, I got Davis, I think he will outscore the other two.
          Since Sims-Walker is apparently healthy enough to go tonight, any change to your WR recommendations? Brady missed practice yesterday (finger, shoulder, ribs), I know he’ll start, but playing hurt again against a tough Buf D…………

        • Brandon 11:03 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sims-Walker would have been nice, as he put up decent numbers, but now you’ll just have to wait and hope the other guys can at least match him. I was actually concerned for you last night though as I thought I had unfortunately advised you to start Fred Davis over Dallas Clark, but glad to see it was Jason Witten who I was thinking of. Keep Welker in there.
