    Hits & Misses – Week 1: Let the games begin! 

    With tomorrow already being opening day of the 2009-10 NFL season, it’s time for the first Hits & Misses post of the year. I’m trying a new table-based formatting this year, which should make it a little easier to distinguish between players at each position, so let me know what you think. With the Hit list, I usually try to  pick players that aren’t the most obvious, so you’ll rarely see a player with the name Adrian Peterson, Randy Moss, or Tom Brady (although I did include Drew Brees this week!) For the Misses list I try to include only players that are fantasy relevant, so while it’s probably a given that a fourth string receiver on the Raiders will  have a bad day, you won’t see his name on the list. Anyways, let’s get to the good stuff… (More …)

      So, you are telling me to bench Chris Johnson, my 1st round pick, because he is playing against Pittsburgh… That is terrible advice which will be evidenced tonight… Never sit your studs is a fantasy football maxim for a reason… Ridiculous.

      • Brandon 1:30 pm on September 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I never said to sit him, I’m just saying he doesn’t have a favorable match-up and you should temper your expectations. Maybe there is someone out there who has three solid running backs and can afford to sit him for the week though.

        In reality though, I hope both Titans running backs have a great game, because I want the Steelers to lose.

        By the way, you’ll never hear me say “never sit your studs”, as there are so many variables during an NFL season and just blindly following that saying is sometimes unreasonable.

        You better step it up Mr. Johnson if you want to prove me wrong. Besides your 30 yard run, you have a whopping six carries for one yard. Probably just jinxed myself though…

      I think its a little early to count out the Cowboys chances of putting up points on a young Bucs defense. The Cowboys can spread the field and have alot of weapons at Romo’s disposal. Just the threat of Felix Jones being on the field is enough to get defenses to relax coverage on the other WR’s and TE Witten. Yes TO is gone but Felix Jones is back. The attention to TO now becomes attention to Jones which should allow Witten to flourish. If Dallas can get anything from Roy Williams this could be a very dangerous attack. I need to see it before I believe it in terms of the Bucs D. This is not the same team as years past.

        Good call on the Cowboys…I may have underestimated what this team can do without T.O. (he looked pretty awesome in the Bills/Pats game on Monday, eh?)

    Ask the Geeks: What to do with the #2 pick? 

    Atg ButtonIn case you’re not familiar with our site, throughout the year we answer any fantasy football related questions you may have in our weekly (or bi-weekly, depending on how many we get) “Ask the Geeks” feature. Questions can range from who to start, who to pick up off waivers, when will Brett Favre sign with the Vikings, or anything else you can dream up that may help your fantasy team climb to the top of the standings. So without further ado, let’s get into the first question(s) of the season, a question regarding the #2 pick in the draft:

    E-Roc asks: Gentlemen, my 2009 FF season has officially started with the unveiling of my league’s draft order. I have the #2 pick in this year’s draft. Any suggestions? My guess is the #1 will pick AP… then I’m going to chug a beer and throw a dart at a page with 5-10 names on it. We have a very QB-friendly-scoring league which leads me to wanting to draft Drew Brees or Tom Brady (yes, I’m a believer).

    On a side-note, can you guys remember the last time a franchise QB (i.e. Jay Cutler) was traded in the middle of his prime? Sounds like a question for the Stump the Schwab on ESPN. (More …)

      Great to be back and as always, great analysis guys. I’m leaning toward picking Brady (high risk, high reward) since he’s got all kinds of weapons around him, but there’s a high possibility that AP could fall to #2. I know the guy drafting #1 could end up picking Brees. My current top 3: Brady, Forte or AP (if available).

      Warren Moon!! Good catch. The Vikes could use someone like him this year..

      Thanks for featuring my questions in your Blog!

    Could things be lined up any more perfectly for Drew Brees to have a season for the history books? Colston’s 100% healthy and looking great in camp. Bush is healthy (false alarm on the knee). Shockey doesn’t have any nagging injuries for what seems like the first time in years, and could be a sleeper now that everyone’s finally given up on him.

    After a season in which Brees racked up over 5,000 passing yards despite injuries to Bush and Colston, it’s hard to be any more bullish on him. He’s the only fantasy QB without any notable caveats. Brandon might put him at #2, but my lack of a Brady man-crush enables me to see the world as it truly is; thus, for me he’s on his own in Tier 1, with Manning and Brady below him in Tier 2.

    Quarterback rankings for 2009 

    Here are our quarterback rankings for this season. Don’t forget to check out the rest of our cheat sheets here.

    1. Tom Brady, NE – He looked great this past weekend and seems to have no lingering issues from the shoulder injury. Draft him with confidence and watch attempt to break the records again.
    2. Drew Brees, NO – Brees tops a lot of other site’s quarterback rankings, but maybe it’s a little Patriots-bias that puts him in the #2 spot on my list.
    3. Peyton Manning, IND – He’s still Peyton Manning and he’s still got Reggie Wayne (and others.)
    4. Philip Rivers, SD – Decent receivers, pass-catching tailbacks and Antonio Gates make for a lot of targets.
    5. Kurt Warner, ARI – As long as he remains healthy, he’s throwing to a pair of Pro-Bowlers (unless Anquan Boldin gets shipped out of town) and will continue to put up solid stats.
    6. Aaron Rodgers, GB – He’s got a great target to throw to in Greg Jennings.
    7. Donovan McNabb, PHI – Wide receivers still somewhat suspect, but McNabb will make the most with what he has.
    8. Matt Schaub, HOU – He gets the joy of throwing to Andre Johnson…one of the best receivers in the NFL.
    9. Tony Romo, DAL – DOWNGRADE! Roy Williams has been a disappointment so far and the rest of the receiving corps worries me.
    10. Matt Ryan, ATL – He’s primed for another solid year throwing to Roddy White and crew.
    11. Jay Cutler, CHI – His main target is a reformed kick returner, but I have enough faith in Cutler’s abilities to believe he can get it done with anyone running routes.
    12. (More …)

      Tom Brady is on top of my list as well.

      Are you interested in joining a bloggers / webmaster fantasy football league? It’ll be free, fun, good networking, and will give something to all to write about. Let me know!

    • Coolest Geek 5:37 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Tom Brady seems to be on top of EVERYONES list. Have you seen the YouTube reviews the fantasy selections?

      • Matt 7:24 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Nope. Got a link to share?

      • Brandon 8:27 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        He’s not at the top of the four site’s lists I linked to in the post (and a few more that I have seen this year), but I’m sure he is at the top of a lot of them, considering he’s not too far removed from a 4,800 yard, 50 TD season.

        • Matt 11:25 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I’ve definitely seen Brees atop most QB lists, but it goes without saying that there’s a case to be made for Brady. Hard to justify anyone else in the top 2, unless you value reliability over all else, in which case you might drop Brady to #3 and put Manning in the top 2.

      in a wr/rb slot i dont know who to play….desean jackson, bernard berrian, larry johnson, joseph addaih and darren sproles…HELP me out please

        Cody, just for your information, in the future we’ll make sure to do a better job responding to these if you send them as Ask the Geeks questions here: http://www.ffgeekblog.com/contact/

        Anyways, I’d go with DeSean Jackson in that spot to start the season. I think he’s poised for a breakout year and should put up some numbers in week 1. As for the other guys, they’re a lot of “wait and see what you get” type of guys that have question marks until the season starts. It might change in week two, but go with Jackson to start the year.

    Guest Post: Week 16 QB Fantasy Football Rankings 

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

    Must Starts

    1. Peyton Manning vs. Jacksonville Jaguars. As long as the AFC East teams keep winning, the Colts must do so, too. At least for one more week. And there’s nothing that Peyton and his teammates want more than to bury their rival in the process. Look for a big effort on Thursday night and at least 250 yards and 2TDs. Great fantasy start.

    2. Drew Brees vs. Detroit Lions. The Lions are just two games away from immortality, and one thing we know about them is that if they are going to pull off a win during the season, it won’t be because of their defense. Look for Brees to go gangbusters in this one and locate Colston, Moore, and Shockey throughout the game. (More …)
