      quick question…this week…i need to pick two WR..my choices are Hester, Massaquoi, Patrick Crayton, Berrian, Devry Henderson, or Lee Evans…I’m leaning towards Hester and Evans..i neeeeed a win this week to make the playoffs

      • Brandon 3:13 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You’re in the same boat as me in terms of needing to win to make the playoffs, but luckily I’m not relying on a wide receiver corps like that (no offense, hah.) Did you end up starting Evans? Hopefully not. If you did, I’d gamble on Devin Hester and hope he pulls out a big game against the Rams. If you didn’t play Evans, then put Henderson in there as well.

        • Squish 1:18 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’ve learned one thing about Henderson. He specifically only has big games (3 or more receptions) against teams that have great coverage. Because the coverage is great, Brees is forced to throw the ball his way. I bet he has a huge game against Carolina but little or nothing in the coming weeks with an average performance at Atlanta.

      Now I’m all flustered and confused… Mighty Mouse (w/Matt Moore!!) or Donnie Avery (v. bad Bears DEF: 24th PA)… Starting Wayne & Avant….

      • Brandon 3:11 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Donnie Avery is probably the safer pick at this point, but I would say that Steve Smith has more upside. Depends on how you’re feeling about your match-up this week 🙂

        • Squish 1:20 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I gotta go with Avery. Smith will likely see little action since they’ll be able to run at will. Avery has turned into a legitimate WR2 in recent weeks and looks to continue as he gets most of the red zone targets in STL.

        • e-roc 10:41 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’m going to hate myself more for not starting Smith with Matt Moore in at QB…

        • Brandon 10:52 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Hah, unfortunately I have to root for Steve Smith here, as I have him in my line-up in one of my biggest leagues. Let’s just hope both of them have huge games!

    • Heather 4:33 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Like your analysis, but Revis isn’t a rookie. This is his 3rd season.

      • Squish 12:40 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Well he’s the age of most rookies if that means anything.

      • Brandon 10:20 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, thanks for the update. Yeah I realized this after publishing the post and forgot to update it. Not sure why I thought he was a rookie, but either way, he’s been dominant.

    • Kamaps 4:45 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      So I have a problem…too many skilled players. Please help me pick out my starters? I have 2 WR spots, 1 RB spot, and a RB/WR spot. The players I have are:

      RB Maurice Jones-Drew, Jac RB
      RB Rock Cartwright, Was

      WR Miles Austin, Dal
      WR Mike Sims-Walker, Jac
      WR Jason Avant, Phi
      WR Chad Ochocinco, Cin

      I have MJD and Cartwright filling up the RB and RB/WR spots, with Austin and Sims-Walker in my WR spots, but all of them are expected big #s and I don’t know who to play. I’m nervous about Cartwright against New Orleans and I’m nervous about Sims-Walker also, but Ochocinco hasn’t been producing, so I’m confused. Please help.

      • Shane 6:42 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Stick with MJD but in the flex i would take Avant over Cartwright. Did you see him last week? He got stuffed at the line 3 times, 8 rushes for 3 of less yard, and none longer than 7. I like Austin and Ochocinco this week. I like Austin because the NYG D has been bad and its a division game. I like Chad because he has been talking about how his team doesn’t throw enough and they are playing Detroit who boasts an atrocious Pass D. Expect Palmer to throw all day.

      • craig 9:51 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Ochociinco and Miles Austin as your two starting receivers, MJD as your starting back, and Jason Avant at the flex spot especially if Desean Jackson doesn’t play after taking that big hit last week. For a whole list of week 13 must starts as well as everything else fantasy football related go to http://www.thefantasyfootballguru.com

        • Squish 1:07 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Gotta agree about the two WRs recommended by the other guys. MJD is a must start as well. As usual though I still like RBs better at the flex spot. Cartwright should have a monster day against an NO defense giving up the 7th most points in the league to opposing RBs. Considering he’s the only guy left on the squad at RB and that he’s had two solid games against rush defenses as the starter, I would consider him a low end RB2 in most leagues this week.

          I do agree that Avant is a very solid start if DJ is out but I’d take Cartwright otherwise and personally would take him either way.

    • TJ 5:46 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Quick one: Looks like Julius Jones is (supposedly) healthy and will start Sunday, possibly hurting Forsett’s numbers. I can play J Charles instead – hard to predict which Denver RunD will show up, but Charles might also have decent receiving numbers. Which one, you think, assuming Jones is “healthy”?

      • Squish 1:26 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Charles better for upside. He has been hot recently. You can expect 100 rushing yards at least but he may not get in the endzone since Denver’s red zone run defense is 9th in the league. I like to think they’ll utilize him as scat back this week too so expect some receiving numbers. Plus, there’s always that chance that he’ll take a return to the house!

      • Brandon 10:33 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Agree with Squish here, go with Charles.

    • Shane 6:37 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Forsett “Strained” his quad during practice today.
      Jones is a safe bet now because Forsett isn’t 100%

      • Ken 3:03 pm on December 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        i wouldn’t call JJ a safe bet. He hasn’t done much as a starter. And Forsett said he sat out as a precaution in practice. Its still possible that Forsett splits carries with Jones on sunday.

        As a Forsett owner this all pisses me off. At this point Id rather not have to rely on either back.

        I’d def play J Charles if I had him as an option. Him and Forsett are very similar backs and both have the possibility to make points as a receiver if the run game isn’t there…or even if it is lol. They’re great for PPR leagues

        • TJ 1:58 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks guys – now do you think Steven Jackson will play tomorrow? Cold Chicago may not help his back, unlike last week. I may need to use Forsett after all if SJax is inactive…..

        • Brandon 10:32 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Steven Jackson is expected to play and should put up solid points against a mediocre-at-best Bears defense. Keep him in your line-up.

      • Squish 1:29 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Try to package Housh/Edwards and Pierre Thomas for Favre and a low end WR. What does the other player have that you could target in the area of WRs?

    • Ken 2:58 pm on December 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Any thoughts for a flex spot between these guys?

      Chris Brown
      Jason Snelling
      Devin Hester
      Steve Breaston
      Chris Chambers

      • Squish 1:32 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Chambers this week out of that group. Snelling is my next choice since I have a hunch he’ll get a majority of the carries this week with Atlanta. Hester, Breaston and Brown just aren’t viable options at this point.

      • Brandon 10:31 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have to disagree with Squish here and actually like Chris Brown today. Looks like Steve Slaton is out and Brown should get the bulk of the carries against the Jaguars.

    • Matt 4:05 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      If Steven Jackson can’t go, I need one of the following for my RB2:
      1. C. Brown @ JAC
      2. J. Forsett vs. SF
      3. J. Norwood vs. PHI

      I also need a WR3:
      1. M. Colston @ WAS
      2. J. Avant @ ATL
      3. D. Hester vs. STL

      Also, between these two for a defense:
      1. New Orleans @ WAS
      2. Denver @ KC

      • Brandon 10:24 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I actually like Chris Brown at running back with Steve Slaton out this week. At wide receiver, Avant is a great play with DeSean Jackson out as well and finally, for your defense, I like the Saints this week. I think they’ll force Jason Campbell to make some bad throws and could end up with some solid points off interceptions.

        • Matt 10:55 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks for the advice!

    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. Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week ten, 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!) (More …)

      One note of caution on Favre – the groin injury I discuss here.

      • Brandon 4:25 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

        • Amir 4:30 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          hes good to play — active game streak — unless his arm or leg actually fell off hell play — come on boys your better than that!

        • Matt 4:39 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          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. 🙂

    • 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.

For my number 1 i was going with Steven Jackson but Steve Slaton seems like a better choice because he scores more TDs and catches more passes. For my number 2 it is either
      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?

      • Brandon 11:57 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

        Collie and Mason, McCoy and Grant (although I’m not all that high on him this week.)

      Andre Johnson

        Johnson (even though I’m not high on him this week, but it looks like he’s good to go) and Housh.

      Garrard or Schaub?

      Shockey or V Davis?

      • Brandon 3:46 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hard to bench Schaub at this point…even if his match-up is a lot worse than Garrard’s. For your tight end, go with Shockey.

      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.

      Hey there,
      I’ve got an offer from another team of Randy Moss and Brandon Jacobs for Ray Rice and Miles Austin. I’ve got Rice/Austin. What do you think? I also have Calvin Johnson, Housh and Frank Gore

      • Brandon 3:45 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

      Alright, RB situation need your advice. Need to start 2 in a PPR league: Hightower (vs. Car); Barber (vs. Sea); Jones (vs. Mia); Bell (vs. Atl)??

    • MR_FJG_SON 7:48 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Want your opinion on who too start, small head to headh league (6 teams) but based on total points to crown champ.:
      QB: A. rogers or T. Romo and at RB:Ronnie Brown V. Sidney Rice v. F. Gore..(A.D is my #1)..
      My gut is telling me Rogers but the Romo match-up vs. SEA is very tempting. Also I basically have 1 spot 7 am undecided on my othat 3 RBs & who would get me the most points.
      Any input would be awesome. Thanks again and new to the site.

        Sorry we didn’t get to reply to this, had a Halloween party and a road race that were keeping me occupied all night/morning before the games. Hopefully you ended up making the right decisions!

    • MR_FJG_SON 7:59 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Sorry about the misprint … I was thinking Sidney but meant Ray Rice (RB) Bal

      Hi ya!

      I’ve got an offer Beanie Wells, Mike Bell, and Greg Jennings for Pierre Thomas and TJ Housh. Should I take it?

      • Brandon 9:37 am on November 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Who else do you have for running backs? I’m not sure I like this trade as while you’re possibly upgrading a bit at receiver, you’re getting two guys you will never be comfortable starting at RB for one that is a decent starter.

    • BadBrainz 10:09 am on October 31, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hi,

      For the flex spot, should I start R. Williams, V. Jackson or D. Driver? I have LT and Ronnie Brown as my RBs. Also, Sims-Walker and Austin Miles as my 2 starting WR’s. If you can advise, I’d appreciate it. Keep up the great work

    • ffgeekblogROCKS 1:26 pm on October 31, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      hello! will calvin and andre play? if not, which of these guys should i start instead: Lance Moore, Donnie Avery, Eddie Royal? Flex: Shonn Greene, Bradshaw, or any of the previously listed receivers?

    A few quick thoughts on yesterday's games from a fantasy perspective… Maybe… 

    A few quick thoughts on yesterday’s games from a fantasy perspective…

    • Maybe the real QB controversy in Philly is Kolb-McNabb… but yeah, not really. Reid’s going to start McNabb as soon as he’s healthy, and the good news for his fantasy owners is the emergence of DeSean Jackson as a truly elite receiver. McNabb hasn’t had a target of this caliber since T.O. left town.
    • I’m not usually one to say “I told you so,” but I’m feeling pretty good about my MJD pick.
    • Joe Flacco looked good again, but I’ll wait to declare him an every-week fantasy starter until I see how he does in New England this Sunday.
    • Matt Schaub and Co. are rounding into shape pretty nicely, wouldn’t you say? Slaton didn’t exactly have a breakout game fantasy-wise, but his owners should be relieved to see him look effective when he touched the ball (and to see his vulture Chris Brown fumble in the red zone). If you own him, hold onto him; if you don’t, see if his owner might be willing to trade him.

      I was quite glad to see MJD go off as well. I played Ryan Grant instead of Slaton though, which didn’t turn out the best! Thanks to MJD and Peyton.. I am well in the lead

      • Matt 1:40 pm on September 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, pretty sure the MJD/Peyton combo is a winner no matter what this week.

    • Wolf 1:42 pm on September 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Good thing too because I was 0-2 (went up against the 2 strongest teams in the league… I lost both games with the 2nd highest score in the league!)

    Ask the Geeks: Countdown to Opening Day 

    With opening day rapidly approaching, it’s high time for some more Ask the Geeks. Send us your burning questions here.

    Brian asks: Hey Geeks, I have two flex positions to fill with six choices and am stuck. 12 man league and we get individual return yards keep in mind. Players are Ryan Grant, Santonio Holmes, Felix Jones, Willie Parker, Joseph Addai and X-factor Stefan Logan who is doing punt and kickoff returns for Pitt. Which two do you recommend?

      As always, thanks for the feedback!

      @brandon, at the end of the day, I strayed from Turner because of the 350-carry “curse”… but also because I like MJD’s big-play potential (we get point bonuses for big plays). I almost flipped a coin.

      @matt – Thanks! Let’s hope we both have productive and successful seasons!

      • DBrink 10:44 am on September 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        the curse is overrated. AP had over 350 carries last season as well (363)…yet no one has a problem with that. i think turner is going to carry the ball less this year, but be as productive. especially with the maturation of Ryan and the addition of T.Gonz, defenses won’t be able to stack the box.

        • Squish 6:49 am on September 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          In fact the the curse of 370 refers to the total carries on the year with the postseason included. On doing the math, it becomes clear that AP is just as far into curse territory as Turner and has had near as heavy a load for 3 years straight. If the curse will affect anyone this year, it will almost definitely be AP.
