    Not to dance on Romo's freshly-smushed … 

    Not to dance on Romo’s freshly-smushed shoulder or anything, but if he’s going to be out for any length of time, Jon Kitna just got interesting. Remember 2007 and the franchise-record 4,000 yards he threw for Detroit? Just sayin’ is all.

    UPDATE 10:17pm – It’s a broken clavicle. Kitna looks terrible so far but is still an interesting pickup given the weapons around him.

      I agree, I just grabbed him in a start 2QB league where I needed some help. No way he plays worse than Campbell from here on out and Campbell is the only starting QB still on waivers in my league. Lucky find!

      Kitna’s numbers at the end of the game weren’t too shabby…although his completion percentage wasn’t anything to write home about. Is Dez Bryant Kitna’s favorite receiver in Dallas?

        Give Kitna a week to practice with the first team and he’ll be worthy of a fantasy start against the Jags. Weapons: Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, Jason Witten, Felix Jones… yeah.

      I have a trade question on the Romo thing. The person who has Romo in my league has also been carrying around Stafford as her backup, so she really doesn’t have a usable QB right now. I have two: Schaub and Roethlisberger. I could use some help at RB, I only have 3 on my whole team: Mendenhall, Best and Charles. So do I A) offer her one of my QBs in exchange for Cedric Benson or Ryan Torain [her only other good RB is AP] or B) keep both my QBs and continue playing whoever has the better matchup each week?

        It’s worth trying a trade but somehow I doubt one will happen. Stafford is expected to play this week. That being said, Schaub for Benson probably wouldn’t be a bad trade to offer. Torain looks solid now but I’m not sure he’ll keep it up. It is the Redskins after all and they rarely have the same starting RB for more than a few weeks in a row.

        Assuming you only start two RBs, I think your team is fine as it is since you’ve cleared your bye week problems. I’d personally just keep the team you have.

    Studs and Duds – Week 5: Don't pass on the Lions 

    Well after a good set of predictions for week two, maybe I should have taken another week off before putting up my next Studs/Duds post. In week four I ended up with only a 9-6-7 (correct-incorrect-push) record as the non-existent Jacksonville rushing attack and Selvin Young did their best to sabotage me. David Garrard’s solid day didn’t help either, but luckily a huge day from Greg Jennings and a good game from Earnest Graham helped me stay above water. As always, I’m hoping to do much better this week, so here you go with your “studs” and “duds” for week five:

    Studs

    • Jon Kitna, QB, DET: Coming into this season, I had big hopes for Jon Kitna and his dynamic receiving duo, Roy Williams and Calvin Johnson. However, the first few games didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Luckily the team had a bye week to think about their game play and I expect to see them come out in a big way at home against a Chicago Bears defense that is allowing nearly 250 passing yards a game. A touchdown to each of his favorite targets and 275 yards doesn’t seem out of reach.
    • Roy Williams / Calvin Johnson, WR, DET: See above. (More …)

    Ask the Geeks – Week 4 

    Atg ButtonWell it’s week four and many of you are probably feeling the effect of poor planning when you took three starters that all had the same bye week (don’t worry…you’re not alone!) Anyways, hopefully we can offer you some advice to get you past the bye week blues and maintain your first place spot in the standings…

    Wendy asks: Hey Geeks, I need help picking my #2 wr for week 4. I am playing Cotchery. I can pick up one of these guys off waivers. Who is the best option?

    Chad Johnson vs. Cleveland (huge game vs. them last year, but is injury keeping him from breaking out?)
    Torry Holt vs. Buffalo  (is he worth a shot with trent green the new qb?)
    Donald Driver vs. TB
    Antonio Bryant vs. GB
    Brandon Lloyd vs. Philadelphia

    Thanks!

    Brandon’s take: Hey Wendy, although the stats go against what I’m saying, I have to believe that Mr. Cinco is ready for a break out week. Cleveland hasn’t been known as a defensive powerhouse and Ocho Cinco (the man formerly known as Chad Johnson) is apparently feeling good enough to ditch the shoulder support he was wearing in previous weeks. I think Antonio Bryant is more of a one hit wonder, while Brandon Lloyd and Donald Driver are going against tough defenses. Torry Holt could be in for a long day with Bulger now out of the lineup. Go with Ocho Cinco…the ultimate high risk, high reward play. (More …)

      @Bolt: Just put up a response to your question on our latest Ask the Geeks post.

    Power rankings updated: Look at all the pretty colors 

    The FFGeekBlog power rankings have again been adjusted to reflect the current state of the NFL; however, I have to apologize that I didn’t have the new tier color-coding set up earlier in the preseason. Hopefully they can still be helpful for a few of your drafts (I know at least one person to whom it will be helpful to!) If you head over to our power rankings page and check them out, you can see that all of the lists have been broken down into logical tiers that players can be grouped into, showing where drop offs in value are at each position.

    Some of the players on the move in the latest round of updates include Jon Kitna, Michael Turner, Jonathan Stewart, Rashard Mendenhall, Chad Johnson, Robert Meachem, Dustin Keller and the New York Giants defense.

    Best of the Rest: Leinart back in the doghouse 

    Continuing my previous article “Rising and Falling: The Barbarian Unleashed!”, here is a list of some of the players who saw the field over the weekend and how their play may or may not have affected their draft status…

    Falling Down

    Matt Leinart (QB-ARI): 4 of 12 for 24 yards, 3 INT –  ESPN is reporting that Kurt Warner will be named the starter for Arizona on opening day after Leinart had another poor outing in preseason. Completing 25% of your passes and nearly having as many interceptions as completions is not the way to earn the coach’s trust. On the plus side, maybe Leinart can spend more time partying with all his celebrity friends now, while Warner studies game tape. At this point, Leinart should be no where near one of your cheat sheets going into draft day. (More …)
