    When it rains in the Favre household…it pours! And by rain, I mean the condensation from an exploded crystal meth tank.

      This kind of “news” just kills me. Would anyone care about hearing about this if her last name wasn’t Farve? Its too bad she got messed up on that crap (I had a cousin go down that same path and it weren’t pretty), but why is it national news? She made some bad lifestyle choices and will most likely pay the price. It’s been done before and I am sure it will be done again…

    Brett Favre upgraded to Questionable for tonight's game 

    Attention all you Joe Webb-ers out there…make sure to keep a close eye on the Minnesota quarterback situation as we get closer to game time. Apparently the Vikings have upgraded Brett Favre from OUT to QUESTIONABLE. While I find it “questionable” that they would be allowed to do such a thing, apparently they gave the Bears the heads up and they were alright with the idea that Favre might play. I’m hearing that Favre will take some time to throw between 2-3 hours before game-time to see if he can play or not, which would mean Joe Webb takes the reins.

    This is obviously horrible news for those who were banking on Joe Webb as a WR. Hopefully your league allows you to pick up a free agent before game-time if necessary, someone like Devin Hester maybe. Anyways, I’ll try to keep everyone updated on the situation, but just a heads up!

        Score! I won the FFGeekBlog.com Bowl against Matt and now get to play my old college roommate in the championship.

          Score! Woke up this morning and found out I’m in another semi matchup. I went against Mendenhall and I saw the video of the phantom 1st down and thought it should have been corrected, but by Thursday morning – it hadn’t been corrected. But sometime on Thursday, they did mention that Mendenhall would only get 99 yards. In my league, you get a 5 FP (fantasy points) boost if a running back goes over 100 yards rushing … I had originally lost by 3 points … woke up this morning and I won by 2, w00t!

    Week 14 FAIL: Kyle Orton punishes fantasy owners for sticking with him 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    Week 14 is the first week of the playoffs in most fantasy football leagues, so I’m interested to see who you’re blaming for your quick (or near) departure? This week the fails are again headlined by Kyle Orton and Dwayne Bowe, as they both were out to punish their fantasy owners for no apparent reason (maybe they’re not big on the holidays or something!) Not to be outdone though, whole boatload of receivers ended up with an awesome ONE reception and probably didn’t help your squad.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…

      Cowboys fan here… tough pass defense? really? The reason Celek had 0 catches is b/c it was the Vick, DJax, and Mccoy show. No need to get anyone else involved.

      • Brandon 10:57 am on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, that’s why I say “Oddly…” but I guess they only played tough pass defense against players not named DeSean Jackson anyways. Figured I would give him some kind of excuse other than saying “None.”

        ANTI Cowpokes here – but I gotta say I was wishing that someone on the Dallas D would have ballz enough to break that little showboat half. I felt the same way when TO did the thing in the star all those years ago. Break a couple of those cats in two and it will stop. A 15 yard penalty that the D has to pay for is nothing to these “ME-ME-ME” chumps.

      ORTON TRIED TO KILL MY TEAM TWO WEEKS IN A ROW!! I was also fortunate enough to make it the 2nd round of the playoffs, but it was because of D-Mac picking up the slack.
      I am seriously thinking of dropping Orton’s Donkey-Ass and picking up Josh Freeman. I have Big Ben, but his match-ups the next couple of weeks have me a little concerned. I just know that as soon as I do, Orton will go off for 6 TD’s and 500 yards.
      What do you think about Freeman vs Big Ben?

    • Lindsay 1:31 pm on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      How much does this hurt Brandon Lloyd going into week 15? I could put in Kenny Britt vs. Houston instead, but can’t tell if it would be worth it.

      • Lindsay 1:32 pm on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Aaand I should have put this in the Orton post below.

      • Brandon 10:12 am on December 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not high on Lloyd at this point. Britt is not a sure bet either though, but at least he’s got a MUCH better matchup. Roll with Britt and good luck!

    Week 13 FAIL: Bowe or Orton cost you the playoffs? 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    With week 13 being the last of the regular season in many fantasy football leagues, I’m interested in seeing which players you might be blaming for your team missing the playoffs? Was it Dwayne Bowe who followed up several amazing weeks with a goose egg? Maybe it was Kyle Orton who decided he wanted his coach fired? Let’s hear it!

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre continues to lead the pack!

      You guys missed one. Mike Williams of Seattle got injured right away during his game and never returned leaving with a wopping 0 points. I benched Sidney Rice in favor of him. Played Wells over Best too 🙁

      Thank God I was playing the Gore owner and have Foster and Wayne. It was a must win week and the only team in the league that did worse than mine was my opponents lol.

    • Hawgman 4:15 pm on December 7, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      70 points from the starters, 72 points on the bench, needed 75 for a win. Starting QB – Kyle Orton (3 pts), benched QB – Big Ben (16 pts). Starting WR – Manningham (1.3 pts), on the bench – Boldin (12.75 pts). Starting D/ST – Chicago (5 pts), on ht ebench – Cleveland (14 pts). Makes me wanna scream like Charlie Brown!!
      Oh well, still in the playoffs and ready to CRUSH the “competition”

      Orton killed me, but the low scoring affair in Pittsburgh/Bmore didn’t exactly help my chances.

      I ended up 7th in a 12 team league that advanced 6.

      My final team was Orton,Foster,Mendenhall,Djax,M.Wallace,Witten, Boldin.

      Fred Jackson rode my bench until this week when he stinks. Replaced boldin for him.

      My league was pretty interesting: the top team had 1437 points (standard NFL.com rules) and went 10-3
      2nd place only had 1001 and went 9-4.

      I ended up with 1199 and 7th.

      Wanna know what lineup gets you 1437 pts?

      Vick, Hillis, C.Johnson, D.Bowe, B. LLoyd, T.Heap, J.Maclin.
      Started the redskins D all year…

      • Brandon 11:28 am on December 9, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Someone had Vick, Hillis, Chris Johnson, Bowe, Lloyd and Maclin?! That’s insane. Your squad looked pretty awesome too…surprised you weren’t able to crack the top 6 🙁

          Kyle Orton -KILLED ME and my playoff dreams. He cost me the playoffs in two leagues…. 2 points, 2 points. 2 points 2 points 2 points 2 points 2 points

          • Brandon 1:45 pm on December 9, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            He cost me a first round bye, but luckily I was close to the top so I still made the playoffs as the third seed. Orton was a big reason I did so well this year though, so it’s tough to put ALL the blame on him

    • Hawgman 7:25 am on December 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Orton has gotta top this list again for his week 14 “performance”. Good thing I had McFadden in the lineup to take up the slack (and then some!).

      • Brandon 8:24 am on December 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Man, Orton and the Broncos defense tried their hardest to royally screw me in my most important league, but Darren McFadden and Chris Johnson most likely saved the day! There’s no way I start Kyle Orton again and the Broncos defense is the most pathetic thing known to man. How in the world do you allow some third or fourth stringer and Tim Hightower to completely DOMINATE you?!

    • Todd 7:04 am on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I started Orton in the first round of the playoffs in my money league. He didn’t really screw me over since my opponent had Rodgers (who still outscored Orton despite missing most of his game). Fortunately most of the rest of his team crapped out as well while I had DJax, Westbrook, Foster, Winslow, Moore and the PIttsburgh defense all have good games. It led to a 68-point beatdown and a trip to the semi-finals where I have to choose between Orton and Freeman.

      • Brandon 11:20 am on December 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I have to decide between Kitna and Freeman (and Orton) so I’ll get back to you once I put up my QB rankings this week. Glad to hear you survived the Orton-storm though 🙂

    Week 10 FAIL: Peyton Manning. 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week the list is headlined by a couple Hall of Fame quarterbacks, but because Favre has been on the list almost every week this season, we’ll focus on Mr. Peyton Manning. Not a terrible game, since his team won and he didn’t throw an interception, but just 185 yards and no touchdowns?! Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Manning put up those kind of numbers.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…

      roddy’s game isn’t enough to swing a matchup.
      had AP, moss, steve johnson, witten, NYG DEF! for crying out loud, fitzpatrick, all failed. lost to the last place team, no longer in first. guess that’s fantasy football at its best for ya. Kitna and amendola on the bench.

    • steeve 3:17 pm on November 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Peyton Manning, Aaron Hernandez, Steve Johnson.. at least Sanchez threw to Keller bunch of times although he couldn’t haul it in.

    • Hawgman 4:29 pm on November 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      After the very disappointing week last weekend, I only have one player on the FAIL list – Witten. I had Felix, Orton, Cutler & Nate Washington burning holes on my bench, but I had Big Ben, Hillis, SJax, Andre, Boldin, and Carpenter in the line up and all of them were in double digits or close enough that it doesn’t matter.
      I think Vernon Davis should have been included also, but his main problems were TD’s called back due to penalty.
