    Here’s your non-football related post for the day. I’m sure most of our readers have heard about all the drama coming out of the Boston Red Sox camp…news about starting pitchers drinking beers and eating fried chicken during games in which they weren’t playing. The Boston Globe put together a slideshow to show the before and after pictures of the pitchers to show that their extracurricular activities were making them slightly out of shape (although it’s hard to tell for a couple of them.) Anyways,Deadspin poked some fun at the article and it’s pretty hilarious, so check it out!

    Oh…and then Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez enjoyed some grilled chicken in the locker room 🙂

      Speaking of the Pats, if Green-Ellis doesn’t play, do I start Ridley or Ernest Graham?

        If Green-Ellis is out, go Ridley. The Patriots will be in the game a lot longer than the Bucs could be against the Saints (which means a lot of passing and not a lot of running!)

    ESPN fantasy football hack exposed 

    Unfortunately I was a bit too slow in relaying this to “help” anyone out there, but recently Deadspin exposed a hack that allowed ESPN fantasy football players to add any player they wanted to their roster! It’s already been fixed since they originally reported it, so too bad if you’re into that obvious cheating kind of thing that is sure to get you banned from your league 🙂

      Lol, I think that’s one against ESPN in the hosting war.

    For your reading pleasure, here’s a funny post from Deadspin.com about the death of the workhorse running back. I’ve been thinking about this a lot this season, as we get more and more Ask the Geek questions regarding running backs. The answer to many of these questions has become less and less clear, because you never even know which running back on a single team is going to score more points, never mind across the entire league!

      In light of that, I am just going to have to keep starting Jacobs with fingers crossed each week and keep Hightower and Bradshaw on my bench correct? I have now also acquired the services of Eli Manning to compliment a solid Roethlisberger. The PIT v MIN game has predicted to aerial ping pong, does this make Big Ben my starter? Or do I try offset the potential bad game of jacbos seeing no carries and yards by feeding in Eli as my QB? confused.

        Hah, actually with Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw, lately it seems you need to go with Bradshaw. Ahmad has been running better and getting more carries around the goal-line, so stick with him until the team starts using Jacobs more in the red zone. As for your quarterback, I’d stick with Roethlisberger, who has 7 touchdowns over the past three games. Both guys make excellent starts though.

          Jacobs will come around eventually. However, Hightower maybe the safest play if you have to choose between the 3. The Giants RBs are facing the best rush defense in the league. Expect NYG to air it out. Arizona is the opposite. NYG has the best pass defense in the league so they will run more than normal and likely make use of screens to beat the speedy front seven which all around bodes well for Hightower who’d I’d expect to have 20+ carries and 5+ receptions on the day. What he does with them is TBD but I like his chances.

          I wouldn’t invest too much in the aerial prowess of the PIT vs MIN game. With Mendenthal making his first official start with Parker healthy, look for PIT to lean on the run as a test and expect a lot of outside runs as the Williams brothers will clog up the center but couldn’t get outside without a twinkie on a stick. And though MIN may be impressed with Favre, don’t expect them to forget he’s an old man. They’ll keep it on the gorund if they can. They may rest the ailing AP a bit but and y carries he loses will go to Chester Taylor who quite honestly is just as good a playmaker and a much better blocker and receiver out of the backfield.

          For what it’s worth, fantasyfootballnerd.com’s combined rankings agree on the RBs with Hightower projected ahead of Bradshaw and Jacobs. Manning and Roethlisberger are about even in their rankings. Manning has a far better matchup against the 31st ranked pass defense in the league and they will be forced to throw because Arizona simply does not let anyone run the ball right now.

          In short, I’d play Manning and Hightower and feel comfortable about it.

      Benjamin Watson or Kevin Boss?

      • Brandon 2:29 pm on October 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Not a fan of either this week, but I’m starting Boss in one of my leagues with my tight end on a bye, so maybe you should do the same and we can root for him together!

          I like Watson here — Pats 3rd WR Edelman is injured and were projecting big things out of Brady this week so he should definitely be looking Watson’s way.

      Hey Brandon, got this problem (non-ppr league)
      For 2 WR slots: Wayne, Steve Smith (NYG), Andre Johnson…
      For 2 RB slots: Bradshaw, PT, Ryan Grant, R. Williams

      Guess Wayne & Johnson are obvious… but which RBs? And do I plug Smith into the Flex? Thanks…

      • Brandon 8:44 am on October 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Andre Johnson and Reggie Wayne at wide receiver (awesome group there though.) At running back, go PT Cruiser and Ryan Grant (who has a good match-up.) Definitely put Steve Smith in the Flex spot if possible, unless you had someone better in there already.
