    First-Half Fantasy Player Awards 

    Biggest Surprise: Hard to go with anyone but Cam Newton here. He’s had a good deal of help from a re-energized Steve Smith, but the inverse is true as well – it’s so long since we last saw how dangerous Smith could be that the fantasy world had just about written him off. Those who took a late-round flier on him in keeper leagues have been on cloud nine all season. Honorable Mention: Jimmy Graham, Victor Cruz, Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    Biggest Flop: Again, an easy call – Chris Johnson isn’t just having a bad year, he’s having an awful one. The only reason he wasn’t benched weeks ago is because he forced his team to sign him to what looks like a ludicrous contract now. You have to wonder whether he somehow knew his best playing days were already behind him, making it imperative to sign a contract before anyone got the chance to see him play. Honorable Mention: DeAngelo Williams, Josh Freeman (a pre-season fantasy darling), Mike Williams (blame Freeman). (More …)

      Is Sam Bradford returning next week a safe bet? Wondering if dropping AJ Feeley now is smart.

      • Brandon 1:38 pm on November 1, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        That’s the word on the street. If you wouldn’t start AJ Feeley this week anyways, obviously you’re free to drop him.

      Who to start at defense. The Bears or should I pickup the Rams, Cardinals, Redskins, Colts or Broncos.

      Tim teebow, Josh Freeman, Carson Palmer Alex Smith or Sam Bradford which 2 should i keep im struglin right now

      • Mike 4:00 pm on November 1, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        thats tough. Tebow has good legs, and will get at least on the ground, but its a RISKY bet, especially given his last performance. Palmer could be good, but its still not sure if he will have any gas in the tank, or know the offesne well enough, Smith has been ok and he has edwards and crabtree back, Bradford has a bad line, but dude can throw, and he has Lloyd now. Freeman has been pretty good, and has a good match up vs NO. Id say Tebow and Freeman, but keep your eye on Palmer. Just my thoughts

      Should I trade Chris Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, and Jeremy Maclin for Jordy Nelson and Michael Turner?

      who is the better waiver wire running back for this next week…i am hurting with newton/smith and peterson out. my other RB’s are all banged up…hardesty, jones, McGahee. I have Maurice Morris…so i can play him…and if McGahee goes then i can play him too… i can go get Marion Barber, Chris Ogbonnaya, or even the lump – Kregg Lumpkin. also, need a qb…should I go Dalton? my QB choices are limited this week…travaris Jackson, AJ FEELEY, etc. what are your thoughts. i need a QB and a RB.

      how about cj200 for surprisingly frustrating flop with no keeper value making a statement about how much he sux. i just got offered DMC for CJ200 in 0.5 ppr.. about to click accept.. what do you think about their value for ff playoff schedules? im 6-2 now, hoping i have a good shot at making the playoffs so could potentially take the hit even if dmc didnt play this week.. but wk 14-16 for DMC’s is GB, DET, & KC while CJ has NO, IND, & JAX.. thanks!

      Trade help.

      Should I trade Brandon Marshall for Vernon Davis?

      At WR I have Nicks, AJ Green, Maclin, Dez Bryant.

      At TE I have Winslow.

      Thanks for the help.

      Sigh is it time to drop Peyton Hillis?

      • Brandon 11:41 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t. Wait until he comes back from his injury and see how it plays out. He might even play this week, so you’ll get an idea of where he stands.

    • BearsFan 9:36 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Which WRs should I start. 2WR and a W/T flex.

      Decker, Manningham, Nicks, JNelson, Antonio Brown. I am thinking Nicks, Nelson and Brown/Decker. Leaning toward Decker cause Brown is up against the Baltimore defense. Thoughts? (((I’ve got Heath Miller as my other TE (W/T flex)(Finley getting the start)))

    • Jeron 10:35 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Which defense is better to start: SF who has been pretty good all year, or DAL who is shaky at times but has a good matchup against seattle at home?

      • Brandon 11:41 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        San Francisco vs a John Beck-led Redskins team that scored 0 points last week!

    • Slaine 11:11 am on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Shonn Greene, DeMarco Murray or Brandon Lloyd at flex?

    Chris Johnson owners can breathe easy 

    Looks like the holdout is over. $53 million, $30 million guaranteed.

    Random fantasy football musings 


    • Ray Rice should be awesome this year with Willis McGahee out of town and a new fullback leading the way (the same one that led the way for Arian Foster last year!)
    • I’m hearing that Raiders running back Darren McFadden is tearing it up at training camp so far. Michael Bush should still be in town and will take some of his carries, but this is McFadden’s job to lose.
    • With receiver Steve Smith a free agent at the moment who is returning from fairly serious surgery, Giants WR Mario Manningham is someone to look at for your WR3 spot (if he drops that far!) He would probably make a solid WR2 as well.
    • Is it crazy to think Tarvaris Jackson may have a decent season? He’s got Sidney Rice, big Mike Williams, Zach Miller and John Carlson to throw to. I’d prefer Josh Freeman, Matt Cassel or Sam Bradford, but still, someone to consider as a backup QB option if you’re in dire need.

    Up in the air

    • Not yet drinking the Shonn Greene Kool-aid. Rex Ryan claims they’ll feature a heavy dose of Greene, but I think we’ve heard that before. He’s a RB2 at most.
    • Same goes for Beanie Wells. Just because Tim Hightower is out of town, I’m still not ready to believe in him. Jury is still out though and he could end up changing my mind.


    • WR Jacoby Ford was one of my big sneaky picks, but his broken hand scares me. He’ll be ready in time for the regular season, but keep an eye on him during the preseason games to see if he gets any playing time.
    • Chris Johnson’s hold out is worrisome. I guess if you get his backup to start the year you might be alright, but I prefer a guy who I know will start from week 1 (e.g. AP, Rice, Charles, etc.) Plus, I had CJ last year and he didn’t light the world on fire enough to demand the top pick this year.
    • I was hoping that people would forget about Jermichael Finley after missing most of last season with an injury, but it doesn’t seem that way. With a lack of top-tier tight ends this year (most of the top guys seem to be fading a bit) Finley could get drafted way above of your price range.

      Thanks, very useful.

      I agree with your comments about Rice, McFadden and Manningham. My only concern with Rice is that he had surgury I believe on his knee during the offseason. Either way I like the addition of a top FB to clear his way.

      I agree with your comments about Beanie. He is a bust this year.

    • Hawgman 10:38 am on August 6, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Every year I draft a RB in the first 2 rounds and every year that RB has a season ending injury within the first 3 games of the season. I would love to have Run-DMC on my roster again this year, but being a life-long Razorback’s fan, I just don’t know if I should curse by boy like that. Maybe I’ll take Ingram – he played for Abalamma…. ;-P

    Chris Johnson finally earns his #1 overall fantasy draft pick with a solid performance last night:

    111 rushing yards, 1 TD, 8 receptions, 68 yards

    I’m off to a great start in one league (even better because it’s 0.5 PPR), but his big game put me in a hole to kick off the week in another league. The pitfall of being in multiple leagues I guess…

      In $ league i played against him…..in my random league i used him. UGH

    • Hawgman 12:39 pm on December 11, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      The person in our league that has him earned a bye. Effectively, that’s 3 weeks with no production from CJ!! ;-D

      Unrelated to Chris Johnson, but FYI –
      Vikes-Giants game moved to Monday night, and not because the Giants couldn’t fly in today – apparently there’s a safety issue with the amount of snow on the Metrodome roof right now. Not that anyone would be starting Farve anyway, but now he might actually play with the extra day to heal.

    Week 4 FAIL – Injuries start piling up 

    Continuing with a new post for this season, 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’s list could almost double as a weekly injury wrap-up, with a few players status in question right up to game time (Ray Rice & Andre Johnson,) then the entire passing game of the Eagles going out the window due to one ill-advised Mike Vick rushing attempt. These injuries no doubt hurt more than one of you out there. Anyways, here’s the list of this week’s failures. Enjoy!

      Helpful post. Can I suggest you add two more columns: Cause for Failure (injury/benching/etc) and Weeks on List


    • Nero 2:36 pm on October 4, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Marques Colston has been a bust so far … I know he can tear it up at any moment, but he definitely has been a bust. He should be on the list

      • Brandon 2:47 pm on October 4, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        If there was a season long FAIL post then I’d agree, but he’s already lowered my expectations to the point where his 30-60 yards aren’t all that unexpected…

        • Squish 3:41 pm on October 4, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Agreed. I didn’t expect Colston to be an elite WR this year. The Saints spread the ball around too much to have any reliable fantasy options. Sometimes the best teams are no better than the worst for fantasy value.

      …And I have three of those FAILURES on my team… Vick, Cutler, DJax.

      i had Vick and Maclin lol thank god i still got the win for this week

      • Brandon 4:37 pm on October 5, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Glad to hear. Those are almost the best wins sometimes, since you know a player like Maclin won’t put up a goose egg all that often. Like when you win your match-up with the second to lowest score, because you played the guy with the worst score, hah.

        Hah, that’s for sure. As a Pats fan though, I can’t really complain. It’s time to move on to the Aaron Hernandez/Brandon Tate era!
