    QB Kevin Kolb traded to Arizona Cardinals 

    The Arizona Cardinals finally got their man, trading CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick for Eagles backup quarterback Kevin Kolb, who will immediately become their starter. The move has to make those thinking about drafting star WR Larry Fitzgerald feel a lot better.

    In other news, the New Orleans Saints found their replacement for the departed Reggie Bush, signing RB Darren Sproles. Not expecting a ton of fantasy impact here, but something to keep an eye on depending on how they use him.

    Monday night recap: Morals of the (fantasy) story 

    Jets: Not that you drafted Sanchez anyway, but it’s clear that he doesn’t belong on anyone’s fantasy team. (Ever?) Rex Ryan had plenty of reasons to look depressed at the post-game conference, but weighing most on his mind had to be the reality that his quarterback just isn’t very good, and this is a league that rewards good quarterback play above all else – just look at last year’s Super Bowl teams.

    The Ravens defense, despite a secondary with major injury woes, is still a top-notch unit, but there’s nothing good to say fantasy-wise about a Jets offense that mustered only 176 total yards of offense. Owners of Greene, Tomlinson, Cotchery and Keller would be ill-served by trading them now (their value has nowhere to go but up) – but I’m not all that optimistic that things will improve all that much. Until opposing defenses have a reason to respect the quarterback, they’ll be able to focus on stopping the run, and the offense will become incredibly frustrating to watch – trust me, as a Bills fan, I’ve been there. (Still am there.)

      Wow, that is one fast dude. Last night before the games they were showing the top speeds of running backs from Sunday’s games and Chris Johnson led the way, reaching 22 mph on his long touchdown run. I wonder how fast McCluster was going on this return?

      Aite oh fantasy gods be honest
      Who should get the flex spot (Randy moss) on revis island or mike williams in denver?

      • Brandon 1:33 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Randy Moss on Revis Island for sure.

      • Matt 1:56 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Anquan Boldin did just fine on The Island this week. Doesn’t mean that Moss will do the same, but it also means that you can’t bench your top WR. I always harp on this point – you just don’t bench top talent like Moss. You spent a considerable amount of draft capital on him, don’t let him blow up on your bench.

        • Nero 5:08 pm on September 17, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Randy Moss, but I got to disagree with Matt. I benched Boldin last week in favor of Naanee (wow, a whole 2% started him) and I won my first game by 2 points because of that decision – they had the same yardage, but Naanee got the TD that put me ahead for good. Every situation is different, but I benched my #1 WR (3rd round pick) for my 15th round selection … sometimes you gotta roll the dice.

          With that stated, I’d start Randy Moss … 😉

    Hits & Misses – Week 4: Cutler to the Rescue! 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week four, listing players you want to make sure are in your lineup, as well as those you might consider shelving for the week (or at least lowering your expectations!) This week I didn’t even have to worry about skipping the most obvious choices, as most of the top ranked players have some pretty tough match-ups (Brees/Colston vs Jets, MJD vs Titans, Brady vs Ravens, Purple Jesus vs Packers, etc), so here is your unfiltered hits and misses for the week, starting with the Savior of Chicago… (More …)

        Thomas Jones or Ahmad Bradshaw week 4?

        • Brandon 10:25 am on October 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Go with Bradshaw, who should put up some decent numbers against the Chiefs. T-Jones is too risky at this point, as you’re basically just hoping he can get a goalline carry to get you some points.

      How do you feel about Indy receivers Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and Giants receivers Steve Smith and Mario Manningham. Both are facing what looks like weak defenses and should fare well. Would you pick these over Hester, Santana Moss and Sims-Walker as you recommended?

      • Brandon 3:49 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        First of all, I’m having trouble thinking of any situation where I would recommend benching a healthy Reggie Wayne. As for Garcon and the two Giants receivers, I like them (plus my “hits”) in this order:

        1) Steve Smith
        2) Santana Moss
        3) Devin Hester
        4) Mike Sims-Walker
        5) Mario Manningham
        6) Pierre Garcon

        • Brian 3:52 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          The league i’m in has only two receivers to chose. So I guess Wayne & Smith would get the start.

        • Brandon 4:19 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah I’d go with those two. While Moss, Hester and Sims-Walker have good match-ups, they aren’t as consistent as Smith has been this year, as he’s obviously established himself as Eli’s go-to guy.

          My starting RBs this week are Benson and Coffee. They both going up against a week defenses of the Browns and Rams respectively. I would have gone with Portis had he not been hurt – he could have gone for close to 150 with that Bucs defense.

        • Brandon 11:35 am on October 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Portis might end up playing, but I’d stick with Benson and Coffee, who also have great match-ups.

    • Mike 9:37 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Ray Rice vs NE McFadden vs Houston who’s been horrible agianst the run, or Portis who has been hurting vs the Bucs?

      • Brandon 11:35 am on October 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Make sure to check Portis’ status on Sunday, but if he plays, he’s got a much better matchup then Ray Rice. If Portis is held out though, then it makes your decision pretty easy!

      i picked up coffee off of wavers have to drop one of the three a.bradshaw,p.thomas, or f.jackson please help

      • Brandon 10:28 am on October 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Whoa, do NOT drop Pierre Thomas! As for the others, Jackson probably has a little less value than Bradshaw in the long run, but both of them have more value then Glen Coffee once Frank Gore returns to action. If possible, you could drop Fred Jackson now, then when Gore comes back you pick him back up. Good luck!

    Looks like LaDainian Tomlinson will be inactive this weekend against the Ravens, meaning that Darren Sproles will start for the Chargers. However, the team has said that Michael Bennett will split carries with Sproles. That, plus the fact that they’re playing Baltimore, hurts Darren Sproles fantasy value if you were looking to start him, but he still could put up some decent points if you’re in a bind at the position.

      I’d love to play him and see him have a break out game, but I can’t in good conscious start him over Barber…

    Ask the Geeks: Perplexed by the flex spot 

    Atg ButtonThis week in our Ask the Geeks post we take a look at the flex spot and who makes a good play:

    Paul asks: Hey Guys a quick ? for you, just finished draft I took Josh Morgan (Flex) to go along with Colston, V. Jackson, R. Williams and S Moss. Jamaal Charles and Donald Brown are still available. Should I add one of those 2 running backs and ditch one of the receivers? Thanks for your help and advice. have a good season
