    Now things are getting interesting…or not. 

    The Seattle Seahawks and Indianapolis Colts have new quarterbacks! However, they’re probably not guys you want on your fantasy team. The Colts signed Ball State quarterback Nate Davis, most likely as a third stringer. The Seahawks signed California University’s Josh Portis, also hoping to get the third string gig.

    Let’s get to some big name signings!

      Eh, the Mark Hezrlich to the Giants was moderately interesting. Great story and he’s talented enough to make a difference. Probably not much for fantasy though.

        I kind of wish the Patriots had taken a chance on him, but I’m sure Belichick has something up his sleeves.

    Dallas Clark and Austin Collie sidelined for a bit 

    Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark makes a catch against the Denver Broncos during the first quarter at Invesco Field at Mile High on September 26, 2010 in Denver.    UPI/Gary C. Caskey Photo via NewscomIn case you hadn’t heard yet (and not that it matters that much this week with the team on a bye) it appears that both TE Dallas Clark and WR Austin Collie of the Indianapolis Colts will miss at least a few games. Both of them are nursing hand injuries that could require surgery. I’ve even heard some minor grumblings that Clark could be out for the year! I’m not yet buying into that rumor, but it shows that it could be more than just a minor injury. We’ll be sure to keep you posted with any updates we come across, but for now it appears that the stock of Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon will go up a few notches when the team returns in week 8.

      Given these injuries and the rising stock (at least temporarily) of P. Garcon, what do you think of the following trade:
      I get A. Foster and P. Garcon and give H. Nicks and M. Austin. Here’s my current roster:

      RB Peyton Hillis
      RB Ryan Torain
      RB Deangelo WIlliams
      RB Joseph Addai

      WR Brandon Lloyd
      WR Greg Jennings
      WR H. Nicks
      WR M. Austin

      TE Tony Gonzalez
      TE Aaron Hernandez

      WR’s Steve Johnson, Patrick Crayton, Danario Alexander and Mike Williams (SEA) are FA’s in my league as well so I could pick them up to give me some cushion at WR. My main hesitation is that neither Lloyd or Jennings have had their bye week yet.

      What do you think?

        How many wide receivers do you start? 3?

          Start 2 and 1 flex wr/rb

      • Brandon 10:52 am on October 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I know you need some help at running back, but this is a tough one. Right now you can easily put a WR in your flex spot each week. If you trade away Austin and Nicks, you’ll have to debate starting Garcon and one of your running backs at that spot. I’d pass on this trade and try to find a situation where you can trade one of your top WR’s straight up for a decent RB or something. You don’t want to give up your awesome depth at WR and end up with a situation where you’re mediocre at both positions. Hope this helps 🙂

      Grumblings about Clark out for a year = confirmed.

    Thursday Night Football: IND @ JAX 

    Although everyone probably already knows (but just in case!), the Colts head to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars on Thursday Night Football tonight. For at least this game it seems that Indianapolis doesn’t plan to do sit any of their stars (unless the score gets lop-sided early I assume.) This means it’s pretty safe to keep Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark in your line-ups as usual. I’m not as confident with Joseph Addai though, as he’s had injury troubles in the past and the team may be more apt to get him to the bench early to ensure he’s healthy down the stretch.

    For the Jaguars, Maurice Jones-Drew could have a tough go of it, but you can’t really bench him unless you have an running back corps and can replace him. Mike Sims-Walker has a pretty decent match-up with the Colts coming off a game in which they allowed a 21 reception, 200 yard, two touchdown performance to his old UCF teammate, Brandon Marshall. No one else on the roster is really up for consideration, so I’ll leave it at that. Good luck!

      Is MSW really worth starting? I mean in the games he’s played injured he’s hasn’t done anything. He’s definitely still hurting but I almost have to play him in one PPR league.

      I have MSW, Nicks, Breaston, Meachem, Collie and Chambers to choose from. ATM I have Meachem starting only because it’s clear that MSW is still limited and playing a good set of corners. Thoughts?

      • Brandon 7:38 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        All depends on your other options I guess. Who are you considering starting instead? Nicks, Meachem and Breaston or something? I think I would start him with Meachem and Nicks. Fitzgerald is saying that he wants to play and Breaston didn’t do anything last week.

          Well it’s only a 2WR league and I have Welker so he’s definitely starting. I was just trying to figure out my WR2 slot. I think I’m going to go with Meachem and hope for the best. I can’t start MSW with confidence after his last two weeks.

          Meachem gets some return yards from time to time which won’t make too big a difference in this league but it at least makes him worth the nod. Hopefully he’ll come through on Saturday.

        Sims-Walker got the job done last night, especially in a PPR league where his six catches probably helped a bit. I don’t usually brag, but I love it when I out-predict ESPN’s Matthew Berry. Here too.

          Wat u[ Brandpn. Who should I start, Chester Taylor or Felix Jones in a point for kick return league?

        • Brandon 11:38 am on December 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sorry for the late response. Did you end up starting Jones? Or you going with Taylor?

      I’ve never been one to bench my studs… and I’m glad I didn’t last night as MJD and Wayne both had awesome games.

      I am worried about Wayne’s PT going into Weeks 16 and 17…

      I have a 67 point head-start going into the weekend….!

        Unfortunately Reggie Wayne was playing against me!

          i considered benching wayne for a split second, glad i decided not too.

          now I gotta decide if I wanna bench Randy Moss and/or Vincent Jackson for Sidney Rice and Robert Meachem.

        • Brandon 11:37 am on December 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Did you end up playing Meachem? If not, I’d probably bench Randy Moss and start Sidney Rice. Moss has been horrendous lately and the Bills have a tough pass defense.
