    Too early to give up on these guys? 

    Just felt like giving people a forum to mention players they had high hopes for going into their fantasy football draft, but who they’ve given up on already. I’ll start off the list with a couple guys who have been disappointing at best:

    • Frank Gore, RB, 49ers – Averaging a spectacular 2.5 yards per carry, Gore is earning his nickname Frank “The Bore” Gore (not to be confused with Frank “The Tank” Ricard.)
    • Jacoby Ford, WR, Raiders – I was hoping that Ford would breakout and become the uncontested #1 receiver in Oakland this year. However, early season injury problems and rookie Denarius Moore’s big game in week two make it hard to see him becoming a reliable, every week starter for a fantasy football team.
    • Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos – Do you have faith that this guy can stay healthy for an entire game?
    • Felix Jones, RB, Cowboys – One of my big sleeper-ish picks this year, with the assumption that he could at least stay healthy for a FEW games! The Cowboys just haven’t been able to put together a decent running attack over the past few years, even with some talented tailbacks.
    • Braylon Edwards, WR, 49ers – Not that I had great hopes for him to begin with, but I expected a little more than what we’ve seen so far. Now he gets surgery on his knee and is out for at least a few weeks.
    • Matt Cassel, QB, Chiefs – Threw for 27 touchdowns last year and with the team adding Steve Breaston in the offseason, many thought he could at least match those numbers. He’s currently on pace for eight touchdowns.
    There are plenty of other guys, I just had to stop before I got to depressed, but feel free to add the players that have already driven you crazy in this young season!

      Roddy White. I’m sure he’ll end up being just fine, but this is not what I expected with my 2nd round pick (10 team .5 PPR league, took Andre Johnson and Roddy White at 1 & 2.) The fact that Nate Burleson is riding the bench and has more fantasy points than Roddy is totally disappointing.

      Gore isn’t running very well. He was awful against Dallas last week. Matt Cassel seems confused and just isn’t playing well. I’d keep him on the bench though just in case. Felix Jones is too hit or miss. He gets injured so much that he’s difficult to count on. But then he’ll have 2-4 breakout games…keep him around.

    • Christy 4:35 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I agree, especially with Jacoby Ford and Felix Jones. Do you think Jacoby Ford can be dropped in a 10-team non-PPR league?

      • e-roc 6:20 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have Felix the Cat and just dropped Fordy 40 Dash for Run DMC Jr (McCluster).

        We should have seen KC’s & Cassel’s demise when Charlie Weis left the team….

        10-team, yeah. He’s borderline in a 12-team.

      Hey I need some help. Here’s my team..
      QB: Vick
      HB: S.Jackson, F.Jones, B.Tate, M.Ingram
      WR:K.Britt, S.Johnson, W.Welker, P.Harvin, E.Decker, S.Rice
      TE:T.Gonzalez
      D/ST:Bears, Lions
      K: R.Bironas

      I got offered Chris Johnson for Steven Jackson and Wes Welker. Should I do it??? Also any advice on what moves I should do with my team. Thanks

      • Chris 8:56 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        hey Rick,

        You need a backup QB… Fitzpatrick, Bradford< newton are still available on most leagues. Vick can get hurt any second. I would drop one of the D/ST for the backup QB.

      • Brandon 9:03 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Jackson and Welker seem like a bit much for Chris Johnson, who hasn’t done a whole lot this season yet. Welker will be one of the most consistent receivers in the league this year. If there are any big Vick fans in your league, maybe you can package Vick and Steven Jackson for an upgrade at RB and a solid QB (or two, if they have a spare, since you need one.)

      Just traded Gore to a Die Hard Niners fan who hasn’t yet lost faith in Gore. In Exchange i receive Arian Foster…..Thoughts?

      • Matt 7:44 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The question marks are pretty big on both players right now. By mid-season I think they’ll both look a lot more like their 2010 selves. I think in the short term your buddy will be happier with the trade, but by the end of the season you’ll probably be glad you made it.

    • Matt 7:42 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      We’ve been through two weeks. It’s too early to give up on anyone not on the IR.

      • Brandon 8:39 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Like Peyton Manning? 🙂

        You don’t have to drop them outright, but it’s probably safe to start lowering expectations for a few guys.

    • Jog_JMC 9:30 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I need 2…F.Jones, Hightower, Jacobs and McGahee???
      And Kolb over Big Boy Berger?..I think it’s a good move this week.

    Braylon Edwards signs with the San Francisco 49ers 

    Edwards just signed a one year deal with San Francisco for $3.5 million, which is apparently a little more than the Jets paid Plaxico Burress. How Braylon Edwards can swindle any team for that amount of money after what he’s going through off the field is beyond me. He does give Alex Smith some interesting receiving weapons if Michael Crabtree can get on the field, considering they also have one of the top tight ends in the game. I’m still wondering who will sign T.O. though.

    In other news, receiver Legedu Naanee has signed with the Carolina Panthers and will most likely start opposite Steve Smith. I’m not drafting him.

    After acquiring the receiver accused of assault outside a night club in Cleveland, Jets ownership most likely told Braylon Edwards to “use his head” if he’s to have a future in New York. Apparently Edwards was listening very closely…but he still can’t figure out how using his head will keep him from dropping passes! (cue this sound.)

    For those of you with Edwards in your line-up this week, at least he made a nice effort for a touchdown later in the game, so you can’t complain too much.

    Hits & Misses – Week 12: Happy Thanksgiving! 

    awesome turkey graphicHere are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week twelve, listing players you want to make sure are in your lineup, as well as those you might consider shelving for the week (or at least lowering your expectations!) With Turkey Day right around the corner and a record three games being played tomorrow, we needed to post the hits and misses ASAP this week. As usual, I left off a few obvious picks from the list, including Ricky Williams running over the Bills, Larry Fitzgerald smoking the Titans secondary and Greg Jennings beating up on the Lions, but there is still plenty of picks to go around. Hopefully everyone has a great holiday weekend, filled with lots of fantasy football points!

    (More …)

      I need 2 out of the following, Laurence Maroney, Robert Meachem, Cadillac Williams, Bernard Scott, Devin Hester

      • Shirley 11:04 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d say Bernard Scott and Meacham/Cadillac.

      • Brandon 4:28 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey John, I have to disagree with Shirley slightly on this one. I agree with Bernard Scott (especially if Cedric Benson is ruled out again), but for your other spot I’d go with Laurence Maroney. I don’t trust Meachem against the Patriots defense, who has been pretty good at shutting down receivers this year.

        • Chandler 12:46 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          how do you think Colston going to do?

        • Matt 4:20 pm on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Colston’s been facing a great deal of double coverage lately and has seen his red zone targets go to others (especially Meachem) who don’t get as much attention from defenses. Hopefully for Colston owners, defenses are soon going to realize that doubling Colston does little good since Brees isn’t particularly dependent on any one target. At this point, though, I’d consider him just a WR2 since Brees is more than happy to spread the ball around and take what defenses are giving him.

    • Shirley 11:07 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have a good dilemma, I need to start two RBs: Bernard Scott (vs. CLE), Jason Snelling (vs. TB), Ryan Grant (vs. DET).

      I’m tempted to go Scott and Snelling because Scott’s going up against the Brownies and Snelling did great against the Giants last week. BUT Grant IS going up against the Lions…

      • Dennis 11:12 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would only start Scott if Benson is going to miss another game.

        • Shirley 11:28 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sorry for the confusion, the question was posed with the assumption that Scott and Snelling would both start. I also have Michael Turner and Cedric Benson on my team.

      • e-roc 1:20 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        IMO, you have to start Grant v. the Lions… then sit back and enjoy your turkey, stuffing, and apple pie while the Lions get the stuffing beat out of them again on Turkey Day sans Megatron and Stafford..

        • Jon 1:34 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Have to start Grant. Great game against Sanfrancisco and only will be better against Detroit. Has been coming on as the season progresses

      • Brandon 4:26 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Ryan Grant and Jason Snelling out of the three. At least you know Snelling and Grant will get the bulk of the carries, while it’s uncertain how the split will be in Cincinnati, especially if Benson plays.

        • Johnny 10:23 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I have Snelling and was going to start him but I heard that Turner might play on Sun since he practiced today, should I start Beanie Wells or Reggi Bush?

        • Shirley 8:50 pm on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I think I read that Norwood may be coming back which would cut into Snelling’s carries.

      • Matt 7:33 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Scott’s a must-start if Benson’s out.

    • Dennis 11:11 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need help. Pick 2… Pierre Thomas, Smith(NYG), Bernard Scott, Hightower, or Cartwright
      Better QB Hasselbeck or Alex Smith?

      • e-roc 1:18 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hasselback has a juicy matchup v. the Rams, but the Seahawks don’t play very well on the road… I think Smith has more upside and is a sneaky start this week at home v. the Jags.

        • Dennis 2:54 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          What about the other part?

      • Brandon 4:20 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Dennis, if it turns out that Cedric Benson won’t play, go with Bernard Scott and Pierre Thomas. Otherwise, plug Steve Smith in there. At quarterback, I’d go with Matt Hasselbeck and hope for a repeat of his week one performance against the Rams (minus the interceptions.)

    • e-roc 1:30 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon – was this your way of answering some of my AtG questions? Haha. I guess I’ll be starting T.Jones and stashing McCoy, K.Smith and Mighty Mouse this weekend.

      The Crabtree recommendation confuses me because I’m already wondering if Alex Smith > McNabb this week.

      • Brandon 4:18 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, no actually, but hopefully it can start answering peoples questions anyways! Anyhow, if it makes you feel better, I’d still start Steve Smith over Michael Crabtree (maybe it confuses more?) I put Steve Smith as a Miss, when compared to other WR1 and WR2’s, while Crabtree is a Hit, when compared to other WR3’s.

        In terms of McNabb and Smith, it’s hard to bench McNabb when the team is so pass-oriented. I’d stick with Donovan, even with a tougher match-up.

    • Jon 1:30 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I need 1 – Greg Jennings, Steve Smith (NYG), Percy Harvin.

      My other two receivers are sydney rice and desean Jackson.

      Help.

      • Brandon 4:13 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Greg Jennings of course…he’s the one on my Hit list! (Update: He’s not on my hit list, but I mention him in the introduction as a great play!)

    • ryan 3:07 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      K I have 2 questions this week.

      First. Would you start maclin or cotchery?

      second. Would you start Mendenhall or F. Jackson (they both have bad matchups)?

      • Brandon 4:10 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Maclin, just because I think the Eagles will throw twice as much as the Jets (and twice as effectively as Sanchez!) At running back, go with Mendenhall, since there is still a chance Marshawn Lynch could play and steal carries from Jackson.

    • Mal 5:45 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hmm just like one more opinion on these WR (they are waiver dregs)

      S Moss (@PHI)
      Floyd (KC)
      Northcutt (if Megatron doesn’t play) (GB)
      Bennett (@MIN)
      Britt (ARI)

      • Brandon 8:30 pm on November 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m up for taking the risk on Malcom Floyd against the Chiefs this weekend if you haven’t already made your decision.

    • Helplease 8:53 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have a chance to pick up chris chambers off of the waiver wire. Im looking to drop breaston or moss. Im thinking moss this is definitely a smart move ?

      • Squish 10:10 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I actually made the same move in several leagues. Go ahead and drop Moss and he’s definitely useless this year. Breaston could still have a few big games in him and we know Chambers should be solid the rest of the year thanks to the lack of options in KC.

        • Helplease 2:16 pm on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks did it and also dropped Breaston while I was at it and grabbed Maclin. After seeing last week where they threw not one pass his way. So this is my team in a must win situation. PPR league where there’s 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 FLEX 1 K 1 DE I went ahead and didn’t play Kevin Smith today against GB. How would you go with this line up. I feel my WRs are all good and have potential for big games it just comes down to match ups. Thanks.

          QB Donovan McNabb
          Eli Manning NYG
          RB Maurice Jones-Drew
          Jason Snelling
          Kevin Smith DET
          WR Chris Chambers
          Santonio Holmes
          Mike Sims-Walker
          Michael Crabtree
          Jeremy Maclin
          TE Zach Miller
          Fred Davis David Akers
          DE Arizona Cardinals
          Philadelphia Eagles

          Thanks again and Happy Thanks Giving !

      1 PPR League for week 12…who would you start at my 2nd RB spot?

      Benson, Scott (I realize Benson if he is healthy but could you give me scenarios for which I should avoid either one – i.e. – they are going to split carries), Forsett, Cartwright, B. Wells, Fargas

      I really can’t screw this decision up. I’m in a four-way tie with 3 other teams at 6-5. We currently occupy spots 3-6 if the playoffs started today (we only get 6 in out of 12 teams). The team I’m playing is also 6-5.

      • Squish 10:09 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think you have to wait to here what’s going on in Cinci. If Benson and Scott both play, Forsett may end up being a better play than either of them. If Benson doesn’t play, definitely play Scott. You’ll have to wait to make your decision.

    • Allan 8:28 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Help!!!!! Do I start Eli Manning or Warner?

      • Squish 10:08 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d have to go with Warner. It looks like he’s fine to play and he has a great matchup.

        Eli’s matchup isn’t too good against a great Denver pass rush that’s third in the league in pass defense.

        Go with Warner

    • Squish 10:12 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Man, I’m torn right now between playing the Eagles defense or Packers defense this week. I think I’ll probably just play the Packer’s defense so I have something to watch today (despite their injuries). They should do fine.

        If your league awards points for return yards, I’d go with Percy Harvin. Otherwise though, I think Crabtree is in for a solid game against the Jaguars this Sunday.

          lol yea. There was no logical reason to see the game turn out that way. Def a shock to see Lee get as many plays and looks as he did with how well Finley played before his injury and after.

          And Jennings is frustrating as all hell. I can understand when Rodgers sees pressure…but against the lions…argg

        Although the Bears offense is a constant source of frustration, I think you want to start Hester today, as his match-up is a lot better and the last time the Chargers/Chiefs played, Matt Cassel had a rough day.
