    Mike Sims-Walker and the Jaguars part ways 

    As one of FFGeekBlog.com’s favorite wide receivers, I felt it necessary to mention that Mike Sims-Walker and the Jacksonville Jaguars are parting ways. Sims-Walker tweeted:

    “its official, I personally wanna thank all the fans who stuck with me in jacksonville for the last 4 years but sorry to say my time is up!!”

    I’m not exactly sure of all the details though. Do the Jaguars think he’s all done in the NFL? Was he cut? Did he hate Jacksonville and want to leave? Did they not offer him enough money?

    Maybe the Patriots can scoop him up on the cheap…

      There’s interest. He’ll find work soon. I’m intrigued because I have the option to keep him next season.

    Are Twitter and fantasy football going to have an indirect impact on an NFL team’s game plan? If Jaguars wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker has his way, it seems it could…

      So I guess if your fantasy player is underperforming, give him crap about it on Twitter so he makes a big deal to the media and forces his coach to get him more looks.

        Time to log on and send some tweets to Shonn Greene (@shonngreene,) if that’s a real Twitter account…and if I had him on any of my teams!

      Finally a football player that cares! Now all we need to do is have RBBC start berating there coaches for more playing time because that way they’d get more consistent fantasy production.

      In other news, in case you guys hadn’t noticed, John Carney is playing again for the Saints (as expected) which means that Tecmo Super Bowl officially lives on in the NFL! Last man standing!

    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.

        • Squish 7:51 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          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.

        • Adam 7:00 pm on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          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?

    • e-roc 7:43 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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….!

      • Brandon 8:25 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Unfortunately Reggie Wayne was playing against me!

        • ken 1:48 pm on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          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.

    Drool-worthy matchups for the stretch run 

    With nine weeks of data in the books on this year’s NFL team defenses, it’s now pretty clear which matchups you should absolutely love to see on your players’ schedules for the remainder of the season.

    Passing Defense

    Worst of the Worst:

    Detroit Lions: They allow a whopping 263 passing yards per game, including games where they gave up 358 to Brees, 340 to Campbell, 358 to Rodgers, and 329 to Hasselbeck. And only the Titans (who I’ll get to in a minute) have allowed more passing TDs.

    Kansas City Chiefs: Only ten sacks on the season, second-worst in the league, and only three interceptions, which is obviously the worst. (Interesting aside – the Redskins, who give up the fewest yards per game, are tied with the Browns for the second-fewest INTs – just four.)

    (More …)

      Does this imply that you’re giving the edge to the Chiefs this weekend v. Oakland? Who’s going to suck less?

      • Matt 9:55 am on November 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d prefer to pretend that game doesn’t exist. 🙂

          Speak to me ohh fantasy gods i have a choice
          sidney rice
          Brandon Marshall
          Kevin Smith ( rb)
          Who deserves my starting roster spot this week?
          oh and calvin johnson

        • Squish 8:54 pm on November 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          A lot of my sources like Sidney Rice this week so think about taking him. Kevin Smith is the obvious option to me but I like taking a chance on Rice this week. You can’t expect much from Marshall against Washington’s pass defense and they should be WAY ahead all day. CJ hasn’t shown he’s fully healed yet so I’d wait to begin starting him again.

          So your real choices are Sidney Rice or Kevin Smith. The problem is that both of them have a downside. Rice won’t be getting too many looks because his team won’t need to pass and he’s got all kinds of competition at WR on his own team.. Kevin Smith gets looks but has done next to nothing with them. He has only 1 run over 20 yards all season and is averaging only 3.3 YPC. In the end I’d say take Smith if you only need 8 or 9 points (the highest projection I’ve seen for him in PPR is 16 with a low of 4) and Rice if you’d like more upside (I’ve seen PPR projections as a high as 24 points with a low of 7.8).

          My personal pick is Rice in both standard and PPR.

      Great post Matt. I’ve been tracking things more in my head but it’s really nice to see it all spelled out on the same page! I’ve definitely been planning to have these playoff matchups anywhere I can.

      As I said a few weeks ago it was a good idea to target Hightower who was low value then. I traded for him in several leagues and now my mouth is watering over his SF, DET, STL series of matchups which have Arizona as a team ranked in the top 5 of projected playoff fantasy scoring in every standard FF position.

      As it is now, for weeks 14-16 the top 5 at each position for projected (based on the average points given up by the teams on their schedule those weeks) are:
      QB – Hard to be able to do anything here. All the good QBs are already taken. However, Henne may be a viable fill-in down the stretch for Ryan and Orton owner’s (ranked 32nd worst and 27th worst playoff QB schedules respectively)
      1. SD
      2. MIA
      3. STL
      4. ARI
      5. NO

      RB – Watch the Jamaal Charles/Kolby Smith situation very closely. Go after Hightower if you can. I guarantee he pays off down the stretch. Also be the first to jump on Fred Taylor if he comes back.
      1. KC
      2. NE
      3. WAS
      4. ATL
      5. ARI

      WR – I’m ignoring STL and MIA because their offenses suck but at this point consider trading AJ or R. Moss for VJ or Fitz for a matchup upgrade down the stretch.
      1. MIA
      2. STL
      3. SD
      4. NO
      5. ARI

      TE – More or less doesn’t mean anything since they don’t have reliable options (save SF)
      1. TEN
      2. CIN
      3. SF
      4. ARI
      5. HOU

      DEF – Keep these in mind especially because a lot of them are available. I’ve had defenses in the Championship game win me as many titles as any other position.
      1. NYG
      2. NE
      3. ARI
      4. BAL
      5. OAK

      Anyway, just thought I’d add some stuff in. For a wider range of values go here:

          Thanks! I really just more or less combined data I found on different sites. No big hassle there. I meant to add kicker rankings but I can’t seem to find a way to edit my posts 🙁

        She’s awesome. I credit our “discovery” by the fantasy football community in 2007 in large part to the weekly link love she was sending us.

    So far tonight Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has a lowly five rushes for just 12 yards…but he also has two receptions for 58 yards! His versatility is what makes him so valuable to your fantasy football team.

    In other news, Michael Vick is four of four for a whopping 19 yards…oh yeah, he has one rushing yard as well.
