    I think it’s now safe to say that the best Westbrook in fantasy sports is no longer named Brian.

      Hell, Jake Westbrook has been more useful than Brian Westbrook for almost 3 years and he’s not even that good a pitcher.

    The Wire – Week 13 pick-ups: Brian Westbrook is your man 

    As week 13 approaches, your team has most likely either clinched a playoff spot already or is fighting for their life. If you’ve already clinched, you’re just looking to best prepare your team for the playoffs, but if you’re still in the chase, you need any source of instant-fantasy production you can get! So with that in mind, here are the potential waiver wire targets for the upcoming week. This week’s list is headlined by the backup to a first round draft pick who is now out for the year…Frank Gore. As always, we’ve included the percentage owned (taken from Yahoo.) Take a look and see if any of these guys can help patch your squad together and carry you to the Promised Land…

    Frank Gore done for the year with a fractured hip 

    Pretty bad news if he was one of your top RB’s heading into the playoffs! Maybe there’s a chance some of the league has lost interest though and you can scoop up 1) Brian Westbrook and 2) Anthony Dixon to replace him?

    In other news, I’ve now clinched in all three of my good leagues, so week 13 will basically be a bye week. Anyone else got everything wrapped up with time to spare? It feels nice šŸ™‚

      11-1 and sitting pretty, feels great. Just grabbed Westbrook, too.

      I almost – ALMOST – had Gore in a trade earlier this season. Kinda glad it fell through now. I feel bad for Gore and the 7×7’s. They can probably HOST a playoff game with an 8-8 record!

    Fantasy storylines to watch this weekend 

    Plenty of fantasy intrigue around the league in week 10. Here are a few situations I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on.

    Joe Flacco @ Cleveland: Wacko Flacco (sorry) has been shaky lately, so it’ll be interesting to see him take on a team that he played well against earlier in the season (342 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, 111.8 passer rating in week 3). If Flacco can repeat or improve upon that performance, he’ll reestablish himself as a startable fantasy QB when the matchup’s right.

    LeSean McCoy/Brian Westbrook vs. San Diego: How shaky is Westbrook’s ankle? Will McCoy continue to make a convincing case for more touches? Andy Reid just watched the division lead get ripped away from him by the surging Cowboys, so it’ll be interesting to see which running back he favors when push comes to shove.

      hey matt what s up? good to see you at the wedding.. all i can say is that doesn’t jason witten have to score a touchdown sooner or later…. bench him for zach miller against KC? what s your call?

      • Matt 10:57 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Dan! Knew you’d find the blog eventually. šŸ™‚

        I’ve been wrong about Witten all season (not that anyone’s been right about him), so at this point I don’t know what to say. Benching Witten in fantasy football feels like benching Chris Paul in fantasy basketball – they both should be the best at their position, so it’s puzzling to see Witten fall off the planet and a guy like Miles Austin take center stage. Thing is, he continues to catch passes – seven receptions last week – which usually is what you look for in a tight end. He just hasn’t broken any big plays or been a major factor in the end zone this year.

        Would I start Zach Miller in his place? No. He’s a Raider. ‘Nuff said. But there are several other decent tight ends who would make a better start than Witten at this point (off the top of my head, Olsen, Celek, the other Miller, Gates, Gonzo, V. Davis, Clark, Shockey).

      Flacco the person to watch against Cleveland?! He doesn’t even have to play that game. Give Ray Rice the ball in the wildcat every play of the game and they’ll win by 40.

      In my mind Flacoo’s already legitimately start-able. However, with how weak half their schedule is, I don’t pretend they need to pass the ball to win games like this one.

      • Matt 10:49 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That’s actually a large part of what I’m getting at. The Ravens are in flux right now after losing four of their last five, and it will be interesting to see whether they focus more on the run or the pass as they try to rediscover their winning ways.

      it would be a blast if CJ topped his week 2 performance in buffalo. If its possible for him to top that game, buffalo’s the team to do it against.

      I wish my rb situation was anywhere near to that productive haha. Finally managed to get a trade off…traded Nicks, Knox and Sammy Morris for Addai. Considering my depth at WR, I think I got a steal. (fitzgerald, sims-walker, jennings, devin hester, steve breaston)

      Although Im still left with a choice between Mike Bell and Shon Greene as my RB2. Any suggestions? I think Greene has the potential for more touches overall, and the Jags don’t have a great rush def. But if the saints pop out early, and go to run for most of the game, I’m thinking Bell could get a lot of 3rd and 4th qtr work.

      Think its worth putting Bell in over Greene despite him losing the battle to PT?

      • Squish 3:26 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah Ken, you got a steal there. You gave up 3 guys with barely any fantasy relavance for an all intensive purposes stud. WTG!

        I’d say definitely play Green at RB this week over Bell. Bell has dropped to 3rd on NOs depth chart at RB and he lost a key fumble last week. I wouldn’t expect much out of him this year now that the rest of the rB core there is healthy. Green should at least get 13 or so touches guaranteed and will be most useful in the receiving game I think. If it’s PPR Green looks even better but I’d say play him either way as he’ll be used at least twice as much as Bell.

        IMO, I think you’ll get the same amount of production/points out of either player.

      • Matt 4:32 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yep, nice trade. Sounds like you found an Addai hater who just wanted to dump him and be done with him.

        Bell and Greene are both risky in the same way – neither is the starter, both have talent and a good matchup this week, and for both of them their production will depend largely upon how the game goes and what the defense is giving up. If one of them has a big game, it’ll be because he broke off a big play, not because he touched the ball 20 times.

        I can’t call this one. Go with your gut.

      Keeping an eye on the Seattle @ Arizona game. if it goes south for Seattle look for them to give up hope and lose their drive to produce. Seattle and Hasselbeck need to win this game to maintain fantasy relevance,

        Good point. It’s never ideal to own a good player on a doomed team.

      Which of these WRs do I start: Crabtree, Breaston or Cotchery?
      Crabtree has a game today.
      Boldin should be playing this week which brings Breaston back down to a WR3 but Breaston had 77 yards and a touchdown earlier this season against SEA.
      Cotchery is doing pretty well when he’s not injured and he’s going up against JAC which has a bad pass defense.

      I think my main question is do I start Crabtree or the other guys? I really hate it when I have players that have games on Thursdays because you’re really forced to make a quick decision. *sigh*

      • Matt 4:35 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think it’s a little early to trust Crabtree over a known commodity like Breaston, who despite being a WR3 sees consistent action and is on pace for a 1,000-yard season.

      Speaking of Joe Flacco, I have both him and Aaron Rodgers. Who should get the starting role this week based on their matchups?

    • Greg 10:54 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      My weekly problem it seems: Brian Westbrook. I have to make my decision by 11AM central. I won’t have access after that. Do I play Westbrook, McCoy, or Beanie Wells?

    Yikes – Westbrook’s down and it doesn’t look particularly good. Nasty knee to the helmet collision.

      And… Never mind. Got up and walked off like it was nothing.

      HES DONE IT. Somehow held a 14 point lead with MNF to come up against Mcnabb (thank god for that flag on that 3rd down throw to Maclin that got called back!). I needed that win to stay alive.

      Thoughts on trading my Jacobs for there Forte??

      Also need a waiver D, options are
