    Ask the Geeks – Preseason Edition 

    As the season nears and league drafts are taking place daily throughout the next couple weeks, we figure it’s time to get the Ask the Geeks posts started. We begin with a great question about a couple of reality show stars in Cincinnati:

    JV Prep Squad asks:

    Word is TO might get more nods this year than Ochocinco. I’m tempted to place TO higher in my list of wide receivers than Ochocinco. Is this a good move?

    Brandon says: While the difference in their average draft positions is starting to decrease (check out where they went in the Yahoo! Friends and Family league draft) due to T.O.’s performance in the preseason so far, you still need to target Ochocinco first. He’s been with the offense for years and has chemistry with quarterback Carson Palmer. I’m guessing that T.O. is seeing a lot of action in the preseason because Palmer is trying to develop this same chemistry with him. Both players will see plenty of targets when the season starts and Owens could provide the distraction to defenses that T.J. Houshmandzadeh did a few years ago…when the man formerly known as Chad Johnson put together some great seasons.

      So of course that choice didn’t come up during my draft! I had sixth slot in a 10-person PPR league with flex offense. My team (in order of selection) is:

      1-Maurice Jones-Drew (RB) (yes, I got him with the sixth pick
      2-Tom Brady (QB)
      3-Ryan Matthews (RB)
      4-Steve Smith (WR – Carolina)
      5-Matt Forte (RB)
      6-Mike Sims-Walker (WR)
      7-Vernon Davis (TE)
      8-Minnesota (DEF)
      9-Mike Wallace (WR)
      10-Matt Ryan (QB)
      11-Brent Celek (TE)
      12-Mohamed Massaquoi (WR)
      13-Stephen Gostowski (PK)
      14-Tim Hightower (RB)
      15-Kevin Smith (RB)
      16-Dustin Keller (TE)

      Thoughts welcome . . . !

    Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer will possibly miss the rest of the preseason with an ankle injury that he’s been dealing with for about two weeks already. The team claims he will be fully healed by the start of the regular season, but given his track record with injuries, who knows how that will work out. He almost fits the mold of a “sleeper” this season, as you can get him pretty cheap as your backup quarterback and with a healthy Ochocinco and a non-currently-suspended-for-arrest Chris Henry as wide receivers, he could put up some decent numbers…as long as he’s on the field.

    Maybe the Bengals passing game won’t be as bad as we thought it would be, even without Houshmandzadeh. Through two preseason games, Chad Ochocinco (142 yards) and Chris Henry (155 yards) have put up solid numbers, even without the help of Carson Palmer who is again struggling with injuries. Ochocinco even kicked an extra point against the Patriots last night, to go along with a decent kickoff that made it to the Pats 10 yard line, so he appears to be healthy and ready to go. I’ve moved both receivers up the cheat sheet a bit.

      I’m looking through your cheat sheets and wondering if you guys plan on doing one on IDPs this year?
      I know probably only 10% of the leagues even use them, but it’d be interesting if you put something even generic up.

    Carson Palmer: "All systems are go" 

    It’s looking safer and safer to assume that Palmer will play on Sunday. If he plays, it’ll be because he’s essentially 100% – so he’s actually a decent start in what could become a shootout with Dallas. From here:¬†

    Quarterback Carson Palmer threw during practice Friday and barring a setback Saturday morning, head coach Marvin Lewis said “all systems are go” if his right elbow continues to respond.

    “He did well. We’ll see how he is in the morning,” Lewis said. “If things continue as they have, I think all systems are go.”

    Lewis said he threw for all the routes, whether they were short, long or intermediate.

    If he plays, upgrade Tony¬†Romo (if you don’t see him as the #1 QB this week either way), slightly downgrade Marion Barber (since there’s likely to be less garbage time spent with Dallas protecting a big lead), and drop Felix Jones from a low-end flex play (since he’d probably get his share of the garbage-time carries) to your bench. Obviously, a Palmer start would dramatically improve the performance of the entire Cincy offense, so plug ‘n’ play accordingly.
