    Looks like LeGarrette Blount’s knee injury is a bit worse then previously expected. Apparently he could miss several weeks with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, so hopefully you picked up Earnest Graham if you need help at running back!

      So Thomas is back from a bye and coming off an injury. Do you think he is a better bet against the Jets or do you think Best, who has been up and down all season, can make something happen this week against TB?

        correction Best plays against the 49s not TB.

        I’m leaning towards Best until Daniel Thomas proves he’s back and healthy.

      Woo hoo! I was able to pick up Graham in one of my leagues after reading your waiver wire list. Also was able to pick up Torain in my other league; someone dumped him for the bye. Thanks for the advice! Keeping an eye out for the law firm’s injury to decide whether to start Graham or Ridley though….thoughts?

        Unfortunately I don’t have many more thoughts than what is out there for the general public regarding BJGE’s injury 🙂 Looks like he practiced today and his chances of playing are better, but you’ll want to check back tomorrow or Sunday morning for verification. If he plays, go Graham, otherwise go Ridley. Good luck!

    Bad news for those clinging to hopes that Derrick Ward or Earnest Graham might have some fantasy value this year. Greg Olson, Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator, has stated…

    We went into the season kind of with the mentality of let’s work Cadillac in. Maybe we can rotate him with the other backs. But as good as he’s looked here early on in the season, I think it’s time we become more committed to Cadillac Williams as a full-time guy.

      Should I drop Ward for Antonio Bryant, Run DMC, Royal, Avery, Hixon, or Burleson? Also, should I start Tony Throw-mo or Garrard this week? Or should I drop one of them for Hasselbeck or the Dirty Sanchez? You guys give the best advice!

        I’d drop Derrick Ward for Antonio Bryant (and should get better as he gets healthier), who has more value in that offense at this point. As for your quarterback, go with Romo, who is on my “hit” list this week.

          I have Manning, Flaco and Ryan as my QBs. I have been starting Manning and cant afford to keep Flaco sitting on my bench doing nothing. I am thinking about trading him for Jerricho Cotchery to because other then DeSean Jackson my WR position is weak. Is this a smart move?

        • Brandon 9:43 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Wow, that is a solid group of quarterbacks you have there. I’d definitely trade one of them for an upgrade at another position, but I’m not sure it would be Joe Flacco. Without the running game that took the attention off him last year, Ryan hasn’t had the same success. Is it possible to trade Matt Ryan for Cotchery or do you really like Ryan and want to keep him? Either way, I think this trade makes sense, as you’re going to have Peyton (that’s who you mean right?) in there almost every week anyways.

    • Joe 9:56 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Yes I have Peyton. I am thinking that the only time I would bench Peyton is on his bye week. I dont want to have Flacco sitting on the bench the whole season when I could use him to get a solid WR. I don’t think I could get as much for Ryan. Falcons are playing the Bears and the Ravens are playing the Vikings during the Colts bye week.

      • Brandon 11:42 am on October 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Good point, so in that case yeah try to get as much as you can from Flacco, who should have great trade value right now.

    • Hopefully managers who drafted Pierre Thomas to be one of their starting running backs had a Plan B for at least week one, as he now has a laceration that required stitches in addition to the knee injury that he’s been suffering from for the past few weeks. Even if he plays, it might not be at the level you are expecting from one of your top draft picks. If he doesn’t play, expect a lot more work for backup Mike Bell and Reggie Bush.
    • While the running back committee in Tampa Bay is sure to cause headaches for fantasy team managers all season, the latest update is that Cadillac Williams, not Derrick Ward, has been named the team’s starter. Pretty amazing stuff considering the injury he is returning from, but apparently they will still rotate all three running backs (Earnest Graham being the other) all season, so good guess on who to start if you have one of these guys on your team.

      I’ve got Pierre Thomas, Ronnie Brown, Jamal Lewis, and Mike Bell (insurance). Should I wait and see and start Bell if Thomas does not play? I can’t see playing Jamal against Minnesota this week.

      • Brandon 10:03 am on September 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Ken, it’s looking more and more like Pierre Thomas is going to be a game time decision unfortunately, but due to his lingering injury troubles, I’m sure Mike Bell will get at least some of the carries, so he might be worth the risk. If Thomas is ruled out, then by all means start Bell. Early in the year though Jamal Lewis is going to get plenty of carries while the team decides how much to mix in backup James Davis, so it might not be the end of the world if you have to start him and hope that he can break at least one long run or score a touchdown.

    Tampa Bay running back Derrick Ward seems to think the team will be using a 2-2-1 rotation in the backfield this season. This means he would get two series, then Earnest Graham would get two series, and finally Cadillac Williams would get a series (with random carries throughout the other two players series’.) While Ward says this will keep all of the running backs fresh and that it seemed to work with the Giants last year, it’s probably not the news you wanted to hear if you had already drafted (or planned to draft) any of these guys for your fantasy team. At this point Ward and Graham make for borderline RB2 plays and are probably more suited as bye-week fill-in’s or injury insurance.

    Week 11 Wrap-Up: So much for that awesome Ravens defense 

    Going into this weekend, the Baltimore Ravens were holding opposing team’s running games to a ridiculous 2.9 yards per carry. One week and a brutal beating by the defending Superbowl champs later, that number is up to 3.4 as they were manhandled in the trenches by Brandon Jacobs and crew. Let’s look at more from that contest and the rest of the action from week 11…

    • New York Giants 30, Baltimore 10: The G-Men continue to show that they’re the team to beat in the NFC as they hand out a pretty serious beatdown to one of the better teams in the AFC. The Ravens were the team that didn’t let up 100 yard rushers…and I guess they can take pride in the fact that none of the Giants running backs hit the century mark. However, if you combine the stats of the three-headed-monster that they employ in their backfield (Jacobs – 73 yards, 2 TD; Bradshaw – 96 yards; Ward – 41 yards), it’s pretty apparent that as a whole (210 yards!), New York was way too much for the Baltimore defense to handle. (More …)
