    Guest Post: Week 14 WR Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts:

    1. Randy Moss vs. Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have been getting lit up through the air, and until last week, Cassel was torching defenses as well. Look for Cassel to get back on track and for Moss to be the recipient of a lot of medium to deep passes. Strong fantasy play. 100 yards and 2 TDs.

    2. Marques Colston vs. Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are playing very well this year and are actually only one game out of first in the division. Regardless of that fact, very few teams have been able to stop Brees and his passing attack, and we don’t see it happening this week in the Superdome. Look for Brees and Colston to once again have big fantasy days on Sunday. 100 yards and 1TD. (More …)

      I have Wayne, Boldin, Brandon Marshall and Hixon.

      Which three would you start?

    • Josh 12:04 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      That’s a good problem to have… I’d definitely start Boldin – the Cards are always a pass first team. I’d also start Wayne because regardless of match-up, and the Colts could get an early lead and begin running the ball, he’s always a must start. So the dilemma lies with Hixon and Marshall. I think I’d lean on Hixon because he’ll be the Giants’ big play threat and he’s produced in all three games this year he’s started while Marshall has been quite inconsistent of late. The Broncos also have a good chance of playing with a lead and if that’s the case, you’ll see the ball handed to Hillis a lot. So Boldin, Wayne for sure, and then it’s a toss up with Marshall and Hixon.

      Thanks Josh. So the quandary still exists for me between Marshall & Hixon. I might look at the weather forecast or flip a coin…. and pray that Marshall doesn’t repeat his Week 1 performance.

      I actually have Hillis as well.

      Thanks again.

      No problem. Definitely check for weather as I think it’ll be cold/windy/snowy up here in NY this weekend so that could affect the passing game. However, I do think the Eagles will force Eli to beat them as Arz/Wash have done in recent weeks, so that could bode well for Hixon. Do you have three quality tailbacks so you could just go with the two receivers or is Hixon/Marshall the better options at this point?

    • E-roc 12:30 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Our league set-up requires 2 RB, 3 WR and 1 TE. We don’t have a flex position…. The forecast looks better in Denver than NY/NJ.

      I’ve been playing running back roulette all season because I failed to snag a good RB in the draft (not even a Michael Turner, Matt Forte or Chris Johnson!). I’m sitting on Slaton & Hillis with Pierre Thomas & L-Wash. I wish I had better options, but I can’t really complain with a Bye week this week.

    • Josh 1:20 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      You’re looking good for the playoffs… Keep an eye on the weather, but I see Hixon getting at least 70 yards in this game and possibly a TD. Marshall might come back but opposing teams have been focusing more attention his way and that’s why his numbers have been down of late.

      I have a keeper league format question: This is our first year in the keeper league and we discover new unanticipated situations frequently.

      In our league we are able to keep 3 players from the previous draft’s rounds 1-10 (Regular Players) and 2 players from the previous drafts rounds 11-17 (Wildcard Players). FAs or Waiver Wire pickups act as your 17th round pick. Regular players are kept as 1st, 2nd, or 3rd rd picks the following year. Wildcard players are kept in the rounds you drafted them. Our regular season ended week 13.

      Owner A (did not make the playoffs) is dropping half of his team and picking up anyone and everyone he may think will serve as a Wildcard player. He currently has no defense or kicker. Many owners believe this is cheap and unfair. Do you believe setting a rule that “freezes” EVERY roster for keeper purposes at the conclusion of week 13 is appropriate? Playoffs team would still be able to make transactions but would be unable to keep new pick ups.

      Sorry for the length — I appreciate comments — Thanks!

      Your question is a bit confusing but I think that all keepers for the following year should come from week 13 and before. Once the playoffs begin, it’s another season and those players should be exempt from the keepers.

    • Dave 2:48 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes – without going into great detail its difficult to describe our keeper format.

      We just wanted to pass a rule that would prevent non-playoff teams from making unwarranted roster moves during the playoffs.

      I was just curious if other keeper leagues had similar rules that “froze” the rosters at a certain point during the season to prevent this problem.

      Thanks for the advice!

    • Josh 2:57 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, pass a rule that week 13 is the cut-off date. That will help solve any problems.

      QB: Romo or Thigpen? Even though it’s Romo, he’s playing the Steelers and so I’m leaning toward Thigpen right now.
      DEF: BAL (v. PHI) or ARI (v. STL)? The Ravens typically get more sacks and INTs than the Cardinals but the Cardinals are going up against the Rams…

    • Josh 8:31 pm on December 5, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Don’t play Romo. It looks like Barber will have to sit and Pittsburgh will destroy this offense if made one dimensional. It’ll also be 30 degrees or below.

      The defense is a bit more tricky. If Steven Jackson has a big role in the game, I don’t think the Rams will be as anemic as they’ve been. And for the Ravens, with Portis a non-factor even if he plays, they should be able to make life miserable for Campbell and the weather should be a factor too.

      So the correct answer was Antonio Bryant, Brandon Marshall and Anquan Boldin… Bryant went for 56 points in our league.

    • Josh 10:04 am on December 9, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, Bryant had a ridiculous game. He’s actually a solid play again as Tampa will have to pass in order to beat the Falcons on their home field.

    Desperation is a Stinky Cologne: Deep Sleepers for Week 14 

    Sneak into the playoffs and praying for an first-round upset? Dominant all season but now scrambling to fill in for an injured player so you don’t get humiliated by some bottom-seeded punk? These players are available in over 50% of ESPN and Yahoo leagues (on average) and might just be able to keep you in the hunt for one more week.


    Shaun Hill, SF – Shaun Hill rolls into this nice matchup with the Jets’ 29th-ranked pass defense with a bit of a head of steam – a 94.6 passer rating and an 8-3 TD-INT ratio. I don’t blame you if you’re reluctant to trust such an inexperienced QB in a late-season fantasy matchup, but if you’re reading this post, odds are you don’t have a better option. There’s plenty of upside here to go with a heaping helping of risk. I think he’s worth the gamble, but hey, feel free to start someone else, you big wuss. (More …)

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 14, 2008 

    As we head into the playoffs, there’s a pretty good chance that your team is already set and you are not in need of any desperation picks. Just in case though, here’s a look at the players to target on your league’s waiver wire this week. This list is ordered by the percentage of ESPN leagues in which the player is available, but even if you’re not a ESPN user, it’s a decent indication of how likely you are to find the player on waivers in your league. We also note here how strongly we feel about this pickup with three categories: Instant Starter, Grab ‘n’ Stash, or Desperation Pickup.

    Domenik Hixon, WR, Giants (7.0% owned, Desperation Pickup) – With Plaxico’s accidental gun shot wound, combined with his legal troubles now, I think it’s safe to write him off for at least the fantasy football playoffs. His backups are seeing immediate dividends, including Domenik Hixon, who has caught 11 balls for nearly 130 yards over the past two games.

    Devone Bess, WR, Dolphins (7.1% owned, Desperation Pickup) – With starter Greg Camarillo out for the season, it’s been Bess who is filling in for him and he has done pretty well lately. Over the past two games he, like Hixon above, has 11 catches, with his going for over 170 yards.

    Mark Clayton, WR, Ravens (7.8% owned, Desperation Pickup) – More so than Davone Bess or Domenik Hixon above, Clayton has been a wild man the past two games, turning just seven receptions into 240 yards and two touchdowns. While you shouldn’t expect this kind of production each week, he could be worth a chance if you need some big time luck to win you a playoff game. (More …)

    Giants pound the Browns, 37-34 

    Alright, so maybe the score doesn’t show that the Giants pounded the Browns, but if you watched the first quarter and a half, it was definitely a lopsided match. With all the “starters” in (I use the term loosely because the Giants were missing Plaxico Burress, Amani Toomer and Steve Smith, while Cleveland was without Braylon Edwards), Eli Manning showed that maybe the Superbowl victory was no fluke as he bombed two touchdown passes to receiver Domenik Hixon in the first quarter. Hixon, a third year receiver out of Akron who had only one reception for a measly five yards all of last season, looked like a Pro Bowl player in this one (4 catches for 63 yards and 2 TD), dragging his feet in the endzone on both touchdown grabs and also torching the Browns special teams for a kick off return touchdown. Even with the great game, at this point it doesn’t appear that Hixon will be a relevant fantasy player this year…but if injury strikes one of the top three receives on the team, keep his name in mind as a possible late season sleeper.
