    The Baltimore Ravens are cleaning house! 

    So far on the chopping block: RB Willis McGahee, TE Todd Heap and WR Derrick Mason!

    Who knows if these are just temporary cuts to restructure their contracts or something, but it looks like we’re in for a VERY interesting next couple of days if this is any sign.

      These three guys along with a few others from what I have heard are already cut. If one front office knows what they are doing it would have to be Baltimore. I see this happening with other teams as well. These moves only help Ray Rice, Dickson and the other WR’s on this team. Although I would be shocked if Mason does not come back to Baltimore.

      Looking for a little help:
      Sitting Peyton Manning this week i’m left with two options
      Big Ben vs. Baltimore
      Alex Smith vs. Detroit

      Also WR help:
      Driver vs. Seattle on the Frozen Tundra
      Crabtree vs. Lions miserable secondary at Candlestick
      Meachem vs. Tampa Bay at home

      • Tommy 4:57 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Alex Smith will have a huge game vs. Detroit.

        Am I supposed to pick one WR? If so, then Crabtree. I’m a big fan of having a QB-WR duo on the same team (I have Rivers, Jackson, and Gates all on my team).

      • Brandon 10:46 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Tommy on Alex Smith, but at receiver I like Robert Meachem, who should rebound with a touchdown this week as the Saints fight for home field advantage through the playoffs. All of those receivers make solid plays though.

    • Anthony 3:52 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need help with Flex Spots. I have Robert Meachem for WR and MJD for RB. I need to players for my flex spots. I have Mike Sims Walker, Laurence Maroney, Jason Snelling, Mike Sims Walker, Cadillac Williams, Josh Cribbs (no points for return yds), and Chester Taylor.

        Keep an eye on Williams, but at this point the ankle doesn’t look good. Fitz is a must-start every week, and Ocho’s got KC so that’s a winner.

      • Matt 9:04 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Those are some ridiculous options. Andre Johnson is the absolute must-start of this group. Even though you’d normally think of Moss as a must-start, I’d bench him in your case because he’s gone five games in a row without a 100-yard performance, that troubling one-catch game was only two weeks ago, and he’s averaged just over three catches per game over the past five.

    • Tommy 5:59 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Sit V-Jax. Tough decision though- those are 4 WRs that could be the #1 on any given fantasy team.

        I love Hines Ward this week against a banged-up Ravens secondary. Crabtree’s the odd man out for me.

    • nero 8:05 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m looking pretty good going into the championship game with a healthy team and great matchups to boot while my opponent has some really tough matchups, a key guy that might sit and injury problems.

      Last week I started (we get return yards btw).:

      Rivers
      Moss
      Fitzgerald
      Cribbs
      Rice
      Wells
      Tony Gonzalez
      Saints
      Tynes
      James Harrison (this week I picked up Beason for this slot)

      My opponent has
      McNabb
      Mason
      Cotchery
      DeSean
      Barber
      Harrison (he picked him up this week for Forsett, he’s got Turner out)
      Dallas Clark
      Steelers
      Nugent
      London Fletcher

      My question is related to my RBs. I had been using Pierre Thomas all year long until 2 weeks ago but it’s been effort poorly spent.

      I have been toying around with the idea of starting Wells and Thomas this week to avoid the Steelers run D with Rice but there’s no way to bench him. So Wells or Thomas? Right now I’m leaning heavy towards Wells since hes the man, riding a 2 game TD streak and even the Texans could run on the Rams, plus I expect AZ to get up early.

      • Matt 9:51 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree – you’re going with Wells for all the right reasons. This is going to be a rout and the Cards use Wells far more than Hightower in these kinds of games, with last week’s game in Detroit (17 rush, 110 yards and a score) a perfect example of what he can do against a bad opponent. He’s a virtual lock for a nice game, whereas the same certainly can’t be said for Thomas, who hasn’t found the end zone since week 11.

    • Matt Scott 9:54 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      3 issues with my chamionship game this week.
      Manning or Benro in Week 16???
      NYG Steve Smith or Hester/ Clayton…My other WR is Mason.
      Pats or Carolina D???

      • Matt 9:54 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        QB – Which Manning? If it’s Peyton, then go with him. If it’s Eli, then go with Ben.
        WR – Smith. By a mile. Don’t overthink this one.
        DEF – Pats. But check your waiver wire. Are the Falcons or Cowboys available? (See my post on this.)

    • Sam 11:40 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      this is who I have, who should I start. Some are obvious put I’m still putting my whole line up.

      QB – Rivers, Orton
      RB – C. Johnson, Ganther, M. Morris, Jennings, Westbrook
      WR – Austin, Ochocinco, Avery, Burleson, J. Morgan
      DEF – SF or NE

      1QB
      2RB
      2WR
      1WR/RB
      1DEF

      • Matt 9:58 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        QB – Rivers by a mile, no question.
        RB – CJ + Ganther
        WR – Austin + Ocho (by a mile)
        DEF – 49ers. Again, by a mile.

        These are all straightforward picks, which is great – no second-guessing.

        • Sam 10:56 pm on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          yeah i thought so. What about for the flex spot? I’m thinking Morris over Morgan?

      We play 1 QB and I must start a min of 1 RB and 1 WR above. I have three more slots for RB/WR mix. Who should I start?
      Thanks a bunch and Merry Christmas!!

      • Matt 10:05 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I worry about Romo this week – Washington shut him down pretty well earlier in the season, and despite their issues they always show up to play in division games. Smith has Detroit, one of the sweetest matchups for any fantasy QB, and in your shoes I think I’d give him a shot over Romo.

        There’s no way you bench Harrison this week. Absolutely no way, especially given that he’s got another sweet matchup. So go with him, both Jacksons, Rice, and Moss.

        Fred Davis at tight end, Holmes in the flex spot and at defense, go with the 49ers.

      What kills me is that any bozo can make an internet fantasy page. Even the ones that charge typically have incompetent people giving their opinions. Think about this. Buffalo has the #5 pass defense in the NFL for 2009. This week they lost their #1 corner and their all pro safety who has 9 ints. Now, how is it that you can tout the great Buffalo pass defense. THEY’RE NOT PLAYING!!! Do your homework! And their #2 corner is out too! Who’s gonna cover?

      Hey Guys, looking for advice from anyone who would like to share it.

      My RB situation is totally messing with my head.

      Pick 2

      Marion Barber…coming off his best game of the season and up against the pitiful Redskins.
      Jonathan Stewart…if Deangelo is out again this guy seems to dominate. Going up against a decent Giants run D.
      Lawrence Maroney…at home vs. the Jags, he has been my most consistent back over the last few weeks. I also have Brady though, so if the Pats get shut out or limited to FGs then I’m screwed by playing both guys. (I know its unlikely)
      Pierre Thomas…on the best offense in the league, but has really been pretty lousy for the last 4-5 games. No PPR for RBs in in my league, otherwise he’d be a must start. Up against the Bucs worst run D in the NFL.
      And the Sleeper.
      Last weeks mystery stud Michael Bush…I’m not really considering him, but he did have a huge game last week, and this week he plays the god awful Browns.

      Thanks!! Merry Xmas.

        The only real change I’d consider making is replacing Antonio Bryant with Austin Collie. Collie will most likely not be one of the Colts benched early if they decide to go that direction in this game. Good luck.

      I have a tought choice to make between Santonio Holmes, Ocho-Cinco and Chris Chambers at WR. Who should I start and should I bench Michael Bush against the Cleveland sieve D and use one of the WR as a flex?

      • Brandon 10:05 am on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Holmes and Ochocinco at wide receiver, with Michael Bush over Chambers in the flex spot. The worry with Chambers is that Dwayne Bowe will take over as the top receiver now that he’s back in the swing of things.

      Quarterback Dilemma:

      I have Manning slated to start v. Jets; but Warner v. Rams on the bench. My gut says go with Warner v. Rams (they are terrible) but he has been average at best the past two weeks. But Manning faces the #1 defense in the NFL, and may have limited playing time…

      What to do?

      • Brandon 10:03 am on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Warner just in case Manning doesn’t play the whole game.

        Yahoo apparently loves Donald Driver this week, but I’m going with Derrick Mason, who has a touchdown in two straight games is the uncontested number one receiver in the offense.

    • Greg 3:03 pm on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Maurice Morris or Brian Westbrook? Normally a no brainer. You can’t predict BW’s touches but I don’t trust backups who have one good game as a fill-in #1. Westbrook is home and Morris is away. Denver has batter D. I’m squarely on the picket fence and it’s not comfortable.

      • Tommy 6:36 pm on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        10000000% Maurice Morris. Westbrook is a complete gamble, and Maurice Morris is guaranteed carries.

          Here’s another one. Chris Chambers or Hakeem Nicks. RE Nicks, I shy away from bad hammies, but I think his projections are rising. Someone knows something! As of now I have Chambers penciled in.

      I’ve got Gonzalez at TE. Finley is available, and I’m looking to find points anywhere I can get them. Thoughts as between the two?

      In the final – $600 on the line playing the number 1 team
      PPR, 1pt/20yds rush/rec, 6 pts/TD
      Need 2 RB: Rice, Wells, PT, Harrison
      Need 2 WR: Colston, Driver, Crabtree
      Need 1 TE: Dallas Clark,Finley
      Am thinking Rice, Wells, Colston, Crabtree, Finley
      Thoughts?
      Worth mentioning that my opponent has Rogers, so Finley over Clark seems like the right move (IND may rest starters). Really torn over Driver vs. Crabtree.
      My line-up (as of now):
      Brees, Rice, Wells, Colston, Crabtree, Finley, Bironas, Cards D

        I also like Rice, Wells, Colston and Finley, but at receiver I’d go with Donald Driver, who has proven to have more big game potential than Crabtree at this point.

        As for your chances, it should be a pretty good battle, but hopefully Reggie Wayne has a short day and gives you the slight edge. Good luck and feel free to “donate” a bit of those winnings to the FFGeekBlog cause!

        I guess if you hear that Nicks is starting when they announce the actives/inactives, you could consider starting him, but I’d just go with Chambers who is definitely going to start and continues to put up numbers for the Chiefs.

      • Brandon 11:03 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, that’s a tough (but good) decision to have to make. Last time the Saints played Tampa Bay, he didn’t rack up all that much yardage, but he still managed three touchdowns. I’m guessing this week he throws for some solid yards and again gets the touchdowns as well as his team fights to clinch home field advantage in the playoffs. Go with Brees.

    Hits & Misses – Week 14: Win or Go Home! 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for the upcoming games, 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!) In most leagues out there this is the first week of the playoffs, so you absolutely need to win if you want to continue your journey towards that league championship. Hopefully a few of these hit and miss suggestions will help you make those tough roster decisions and if they don’t, please feel free to leave a comment with your specific situation. Good luck!

      So I was able to land myself in 3rd place in a 10 team league so I am in the playoffs, but without a bye this week. My RB position is seriously sad and getting worse each week it seems, so I need some help.
      My roster right now looks like this

      QB Romo, Orton
      WR Colston, Smith(nyg), Meacham, Collie, Avery, Bess Floyd
      RB R. Williams, Forte, Ganther
      DEF Jets

      I am thinking Romo at QB…Colston, Smith, and Meacham for WRs and maybe Williams and Ganther for my 2 RBs…I need a flex play…last wk I played Avery over Bess which wasn’t so great, but who could predict that. I am thinking Avery again this week. Please let me know what you think of my lineup and who I should switch out if any!! Thx for all your help!!!

      its a toughie and all of your opinions will help thanks

      • Brandon 8:22 am on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not high on him this week, but I guess you’ll want to throw Matt Forte in there, along with Fred Jackson and Correll Buckhalter (and hope he has another week like last week.)

      • Brandon 6:31 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        At receiver, that’s a pretty tough decision, but I guess I’d bench Brandon Marshall against a solid Colts defense. In terms of your running backs, Correll Buckhalter and Jonathan Stewart are probably your best bets. Just hope that Stewart gets a touchdown and Buckhalter can take a few screen passes for solid yardage.

    • Not Barry Sanders 9:29 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      yo B…my RB sitch is a mess…started Mendenhall – lost Portis, Westbrook AND now Slaton…so I need to choose 2 + a pick a flex (I may use a WR for flex but not sure) from this mess…Moats, Buckholter, Snelling, Felix Jones, Cartwright, Lynch & Fargas. Last week I used Correl vs KC and he cam up big – Lynch has same matchup and similar situation…Thanks for your help

      • Brandon 6:23 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wowsers that is a motley crew you have there. Depending on your receivers, you probably want one of them in the flex spot. If they’re not any good though, your top three running backs this week are probably Fargas, Buckhalter and Felix Jones (high risk, high reward.)

    • Ken 10:41 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have Reggie Wayne, Vincent Jackson and Randy Moss for my WR. (4 team league)

      I’m considering benching Wayne and Jackson for Sidney Rice and Robert Meachem. Any thoughts on this decision?

      • Brandon 6:21 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Tough one there, as all of them are pretty solid options. It’s hard to bench Meachem while he’s so hot right now, so I’d probably plug him in for Vincent Jackson. As for Moss and Wayne, I think you have to keep them in over Sidney Rice just because of their potential.

    Hits & Misses – Week 10: Thursday Night Football Edition 

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, make sure to check your rosters before the game tonight so that you don’t get screwed with a starter on your bench (or even worse if there are leagues out there that lock rosters after the first game of the week starts!) Anyways, I wanted to get this post out with time to spare before game-time tonight in case any of the 49ers or Bears players made the list.

        All reports I’ve seen say he should be fine, but it’s always a good idea to watch these situations all the way until game day.

          My fear isn’t that he won’t play, it’s that he’ll do exactly what he did last year – play through an injury that slowly ruins his performance.

      • Colin 8:48 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        So I have both Brett Favre and Tom Brady on my FF team. Farve looks like the better match-up this week but Im worried that the Vikings will stomp all over the Lions early thus taking Farve out of the game early. Brady will be playing all game but a very tough game…. What should I do?!

        • Squish 9:16 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Go with Brady. Why waste one of your studs? Favre may have performed well so far but there is no way he can be deemed on the level of Brady. You know Brady will toss a few tDs no matter who he’s playing so play him for sure.

    • Anthony 5:47 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Which 2 WRs should I start, Mike Sims Walker, Devin Hester, Santana Moss, or Robert Meachem?

      • Brandon 5:50 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although Sims-Walker has a tough match-up, go with him and Devin Hester. Moss made my “Miss” list this week and Meachem is too risky.

        • Squish 8:04 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Agreed. If Hester can still play the way he did last week injured then he’s a legitimate fantasy WR now. I learned the consequences of benching MSW last week. Don’t make yourself go through that Anthony.

    • Jonathan 8:27 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      In a debacle this week. Should I start: Which one?

      Austin Collie-Colts WR vs. New England
      Devery Henderson-Saints WR vs. Rams

      • Brandon 10:03 am on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Henderson for sure. Better match-up and he’s been solid the past few games.

    • Scotty 5:11 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon, I’m in a PPR leauge & I’m wondering who I should start: Kevin Smith vs. Minn or Lesean McCoy vs. SD? Minn def is stout & will be rested coming off a bye; however, Smith will undoubtedly get the lion’s share of touches (& he performed ok against Minn earlier this season). Whereas McCoy has an easier matchup, he will be sharing time with Westbrook, according to Andy Reid. What do you think?

      • Brandon 5:31 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Even with Kevin Smith getting “the lion’s share” (pun intended), I still like LeSean McCoy against a suspect Chargers run defense. There’s still a chance Brian Westbrook doesn’t play, so McCoy would be a definite start in that case.

    • Jojo 6:38 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      OK. I have Cutler and only him…moment of silence please. On the waiver my choices are limited moving forward. Sanchez, Freeman, T. Edwards, and J. Campbell. Which one is the best pick moving forward for possible matchup play??

      • Brandon 10:13 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Let’s not go too crazy on thinking Jay Cutler is a lost cause…just two games ago he threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns against the Cardinals (although a lot was in garbage time I guess.) Either way, none of those QB’s you’ve listed strike my fancy, but if I had to pick any of them right now I’d say Mark Sanchez. Josh Freeman is a wildcard though. Watch him over the next game or so and see what kind of numbers he puts up.

    • Ken 1:25 am on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Normally a no brainer but seeing the numbers guys like Randy moss and Andre Johnson put up against the jets I’m worried about starting simswalker.

      You like msw or breaston better this week? I’m leaning tiwards breaston but a second opinion always helps.

      Thanks!

      • Squish 7:08 am on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I can answer the question for everyone on this board I think. Brandon and Mike will definitely say go with MSW despite his poor matchup. I am more or less in agreement with them. But, I will go out on a limb and say that if Boldin is out this week, Breaston should be the better play this week for sure.

    • Ken 9:23 am on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks squish. Yea, I mean the cardinals usually score well against seatle and breaston pulled in 17 points in my ppr league last time. But i got this nagging feeling that’s not going to happen again. I think seatle’s def is gonna step up a bit this week.

      But man, the only time I saw Revis eff up was his booboo against ted ginn in miami’s Jet’s first match. Otherwise he’s shut down every receiver, and I doubt MSW is gonna be amy dif. So its a tough call.

      • Brandon 1:29 pm on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, Squish called me out I guess…and he’s right. Although Sims-Walker’s good games this season have all come at the expense of less-than-spectacular defenses, I can’t recommend you bench him for the likes of Steve Breaston. I’m not necessarily a “never bench your start player” kind of guy, but in this case, I wouldn’t bench your star guy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Jojo 2:52 pm on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      If D. Williams is out this weekend, who is the better play J. Stewart or Mendenhall?

      • Squish 12:05 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If Williams is out I think Mendenthal is the better option. Carolina is facing a reasonable defense and Stewart really hasn’t looked good all season plus he’s been on the injury list for a majority of it. Mendenthal is clearly now the primary carrier in PIT and they’ll use him plenty against a Cincinatti team who’s DL is still hurting from the loss of Odom. Look for Pittsburgh’s OL to establish themselves early and often. Even if Mendenthal doesn’t get a big load of carries, he’ll do plenty with what he does get. I think you can count on at least a couple long runs by him and like a TD or two.

      • Brandon 11:26 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have to disagree with Squish here. If DeAngelo Williams is out, Stewart makes a great play against the Falcons. Minus his last game (against a tough Saints defense), he was running the ball pretty well and the last time he played the Falcons, he had a 7.2 ypc average on nine carries. I’d go with Stewart (IF DeAngelo Williams is out that is :-))

    • Brian 1:24 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon,
      I’ve been waffling back and forth (just call me Favre) about which QB to start. I’ve got Flacco with a great matchup or the always consistent Rivers with a not so great matchup against Philly. What do you think?

      • Squish 1:46 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Rivers this week better than Flacco despite the matchup differences. All my most accurate sources have Rivers slightly ahead as well. The going consensus is that Baltimore won’t have to pass much against the Browns and because of that the great passing game matchup is more or less superficial. Rivers on the other hand will likely have to pass often in the competitive game he’s playing in and thus should accrue more fantasy points.

      • Brandon 11:28 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Squish on this one. There are very few match-ups now where you would start Flacco over Rivers. Rivers’ upside is just too high with the weapons he has at his disposal.

        • Brian 12:57 pm on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thank you both of you. Well articulated and sound reasoning. Looks like i’m going with Rivers!

    Hits & Misses – Week 8: Happy Halloween! 

    matt's bills pumpkinWith Halloween right around the corner, hopefully your fantasy teams are in for more treats than tricks! While there is no game on Sunday night due to the World Series, I’m excited for the treat we’ll all get on Monday night when we actually get to see a good football game (Falcons @ Saints), instead of what we were forced to witness last week. Make sure to set your rosters early on Saturday so that you don’t forget while you’re nursing that post-party hangover on Sunday!

        Donald Lee will get more looks as JerMichael Finley is out (or at least banged up) this week. As for Nicks vs Jennings, I’d go with Jennings, as I think the Vikings/Packers game will include a ton of passing.

      Ricky Williams
      Kevin Smith
      Reggie Bush

      Also how do you feel about Tomlinson going against the Raiders.

      Love the site! I’ve got 2 WR and 2 RB spots, and 1 flex. I’m planning on starting Donald Driver, Mike Sims-Walker, Joseph Addai, Kevin Smith, and Miles Austin in the flex. Others on my roster are Andre Johnson, Derrick Mason, Correll Buckhalter, and Shonn Greene. Kevin Smith hasn’t been doing much lately, but I like his matchup against the Rams. I also don’t much like the matchups of the players I plan on benching. What do you think? Since my WR core is pretty deep, should I trade for an elite RB? Thanks in advance!

      • Brandon 11:59 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, that is a deep receiver corps you have there. Although I have Andre Johnson as a “miss” this week, I would think it’d be hard to bench him ever. If you can, try to watch the ESPN pregame show on Sunday to see Johnson’s status, because if he’s close to 100%, he’s probably a better play than Donald Driver. By all means though, think about trading some of those receivers before your league’s trade deadline (if you have one) or before they start getting hurt and lose value.

    • Stediberto 11:29 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’ve got MSW, Calvin Johnson, Steve Smith (CAR), Hakeem Nicks & A Collie. If Calvin plays, should I think about starting Collie over Smith?

        I don’t feel confident starting Steve Smith at this point and Austin Collie has been one of Peyton’s favorite targets. Go with Collie…but I like Hakeem Nicks more than Collie if that is a decision you were making too.

      Hey Brandon, I’m wondering if you would start Jerricho Cotchery vs. Miami or Hakeem Nicks vs. Philly. Jerricho, as you know, has been nursing a hamstring injury, but has apparently looked sharp in practice this week. Miami is starting 2 rookie corners. Hakeem is going against a much tougher secondary & he is the tertiary option for Eli. Weather is forecasted to be inclement in both Philly & New York. What do you think?

      • Brandon 3:49 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d still go with Hakeem Nicks. Mario Manningham is hurt and might not even play this weekend, meaning Nicks will start alongside Steve Smith and get tons of looks. Eli is much better than Mark Sanchez and can over come a little weather and a tougher defense.

        I’d stick with Rice and Austin. Who knows, maybe Miles Austin ends up being a legit top-tier wide receiver. Ray Rice is a heck of a lot better than Jacobs at this point and I don’t think this trade is worth it for you.
