    Just reading that the Dallas Cowboys have cut both RB Marion Barber and WR Roy Williams. Will be interesting to see where they land.

      Arizona Cardinals cut QB Derek Anderson and RB Edgerrin James retires (he was still “playing”?)

      Seattle Seahawks sign QB Tarvaris Jackson to replace outgoing Matt Hasselbeck. Not sure that’s a great change!

    Week 9 FAIL: Glad I'm not a Cowboys fan 

    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 marks the first time in FFGeekBlog history that an entire team has headlined the FAIL post twice in the same season (okay, we just started it this year, but still…) The Dallas Cowboys are just pathetic at this point. As a fan of the Patriots, who were embarrassed by the Browns this past weekend, at least put up some decent stats at important positions. This can not be said for the Cowboys, besides Dez Bryant.

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

    Anyways, here are the rest of them…

      I should have played Danny Woodhead as RB instead of BJGE. Danny made over 10 pts on our Yahoo league. BJGE a little over 1 point.

      I didn’t see Blount on that list, he didn’t burn up the field yesterday either. I was at the game watching him in person! LOL

        Funny you mention Blount. I actually had him on the list as a borderline FAIL, but decided against it due to the fact that he at least put up some yards and expectations may have been a bit high for him considering he had exactly one good game under his belt going into this week’s games, hah.

      And Roddy White…. but good too see him come back in. Good thing I had Foster & Rodgers to pick it up!

      My WR lineup for last week – Boldin, Andre, and Collie. I had Hillis in the lineup (every week start in my opinion) and he did great, but the rest of the team only had one more TD and that was from Big Ben. I lost by more than EIGHTY points!!
      Oh well, there’s always next week!

    Week 7 FAIL – Dreadful Dallas 

    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 we have half a fantasy football team’s worth of Dallas Cowboys on the list, with their quarterback getting hurt, one of their running backs playing like he is hurt, and their top two receivers being shown up by a rookie.

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

    Anyways, here are the rest of them…

      I hate to say this but, Romo was my starter and now I have Henne as my back up. I picked up Bradford just in case kitna didn’t do go (which was average). My question, should I start Henne, Bradford, or pick up Kitna (he is available). Also an option, I was offered Matt Ryan for Roddy White, straight up trade. Roddy White has really been giving me the most of my point so, I am reluctant to trade. My WR depth isn’t shabby ( Nicks, Royal, Santana Moss, Welker and of course White). What should I do with the options I have for my QB and trade situation?

      • Brandon 8:32 am on October 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Do NOT give up Roddy White for Matt Ryan…that’s for sure. At quarterback, there seems to be a group of quarterbacks this week that make decent starts and can most likely be found on the waiver wire. Jon Kitna and Ryan Fitzpatrick lead the group, but Matt Cassel, David Garrard, Matthew Stafford and even your boy Chad Henne could put up solid numbers this week. Even Josh Freeman could have a good game this week. If you have the roster spots to do it, I’d pick up Jon Kitna and Ryan Fitzpatrick, starting Kitna this week, and seeing where things go from there. To be honest, there really aren’t many top-tier, consistent quarterbacks this year that are out-producing the rest of the league on a normal basis, so rotating some of these waiver wire guys each week probably isn’t the worst thing you could do 🙂

          Thanks Brandon, gut was to not trade White, thanks for the reassurance. I decided to drop bradford and pick up Fitzpatrick, lets hope he goes nuts this week like he did last week.

          Literally every one of my WR are on bye, except for Welker, so i need some solid numbers to win this week.

          I love the website redesign by the way…just don’t like that it is not Mobile-friendly.

    The Dallas Morning News' sports columnist says that three players on the Cowboy… 

    The Dallas Morning News’ sports columnist says that three players on the Cowboys “stand out” because of their “freakish talent.” Included in his talented trio: Felix Jones. Not included: Marion Barber. Just one more reason to wonder whether Barber will get any more than 1/3 of the carries in this offense.

      I agree and wonder if Barber, Felix Jones or Tashad Choice really good picks for fantasy? I don’t love RB by committee. Who is the featured back? Who gets the goal line carries?

    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.
