    Speaking of DeAngelo Williams, he missed practice yesterday and is questionable for Sunday, which is too bad given that the Panthers are taking on the Rams. If Williams doesn’t practice again today, Jonathan Stewart looks like a very solid start.

      I have McFadden, Felix Jones, Steven Jackson, and Jonathan Stewart. I can play 3 of them. IF D-Willi can’t go, do I put Stewie in the line up? If so, who do I sit?

        Felix Jones is the only one I’d consider benching for Stewart. If DeAngelo Williams will sit this one out, then I’d start Stewart. If Williams is going to play but be limited, it’s a harder choice but I’d probably go with Jones.

          Yeah, I think I will be sticking with Felix. I like his match-up vs the Jags and I feel like the Romo-less Cows will be leaning more on the running game. Also, I am not convinced that the Hello Kitty’s O-line can open holes for Stewart or anyone else for that matter. It’s not line D-Willi has been blowing things up this year.
          Thanks for the thoughts….

      I have been offered a trade Randy Moss & Carson Palmer for Mike Wallace & Michael Vick. I have Wallace & Vick, I am in a 12 man league with 2 RB, 2 WR and a Flex. My starting QB is Ben Roethlisberger and my top four WR are Wallace, Marshall, Roddy White, and Ochocinco. Should I accept this trade and get Randy Moss & Palmer as a back?

      • Hawgman 9:41 am on October 29, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        My thought is – You don’t need either player. Wallace (the SEA version) is getting targeted more than Moss and has a better QB chucking it to him (right now anyway). And if Vick does as well as he was before getting broken, he is a much better QB than Palmer.
        You don’t want him to use Vick and BMW against you. Better to have them on YOUR bench than in your opponents starting lineup. Just my opinion…

      • Brandon 10:27 am on October 29, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Don’t do this trade. Vick and Wallace could outproduce Moss and Palmer down the stretch.

    If you've been as frustrated by DeAngel… 

    If you’ve been as frustrated by DeAngelo Williams as I have this season but haven’t quite given up on him yet, the Charlotte Observer offers a couple of reasons to hold out hope that he won’t be a total bust:

    Until last week, Carolina’s downfield passing attack had been virtually nonexistent. But quarterback Matt Moore and rookie receivers David Gettis and Brandon LaFell connected on several big plays in a 23-20 win against San Francisco. […] Carolina also could benefit from an upcoming, five-game stretch against teams ranked 15th or lower in the NFL in run defense.

    The good news for Williams owners is that backfield mate Jonathan Stewart has been even worse, so there’s little risk that he’ll lose any carries. It’s no use trading him now; you won’t get any kind of value for him. Bench him if you have better options, but keep an eye on the matchups and the performance of Carolina’s passing game, which just needs a little respect to open things up on the ground.

    Ask the Geeks: One week to go edition! 

    Atg ButtonWith under a week to go before the Titans play the Steelers on Thursday night football, here are a few questions we’ve received over the past few days:

    Haseeb asks: In my league we can start up to 2 rb’s and another as a flex. I currently have Deangelo Williams, Joseph Addai, and Chris Johnson. I also have Jonathan Stewart on the bench. Do I start Stewart over Addai or Johnson? Or do I keep him on the bench? Thanks guys!

    Hits and Misses – Week 16: Take a ride in the PT Cruiser! 

    Of all the cars out there to get a nickname from (see: Cadillac Williams), I’m not sure I would want people calling me the name of one of the worst new vehicles to come out this century, but whatever works I guess! It apparently IS working for Saints running back Pierre Thomas, who has put up some great fantasy numbers over the past few weeks in an offense that is traditionally pass-first (and made a lot of fantasy team managers very happy in the process.) This weekend you should have the PT Cruiser parked right in the RB1 or RB2 slot on your roster when the Saints head to Detroit, helping your team cruise to a fantasy football championship!

    Hits

    • Pierre Thomas, RB, Saints: Although I recommend a few of our readers sit the PT Cruiser last week, this week my tune has changed a bit. The Saints head to Detroit on Sunday to play a Lions team that has been absolutely dreadful against the run this year, allowing 169 yards per game (4.9 ypc) to opposing tailbacks, while allowing them to rack up 26 touchdowns. With Reggie Bush out of the picture, expect a big day for Thomas.
    • Antonio Bryant, WR, Buccaneers: For all of you who snagged Antonio Bryant off the waiver wire in the middle of the season, you have to be loving your decision at this point. In most leagues, Bryant has now racked you up around 300 yards and a couple touchdowns through the first two rounds of the playoffs, and I’m predicting that he’ll continue that trend against a bad San Diego Chargers defense. You know those commercials that ESPN had for the Fantasy Football Hall of Fame? If Bryant comes through this weekend, I think you need to add him for next year’s ads. (More …)

      @brandon – I’m glad I stumbled onto the FFGeekblog when I did (week 13?), because I’ve since become the champion of my 10-team league (even though I unintentionally benched Wayne). Week 17 still counts for us in the points-race where I’m currently 3rd (top 2 get paid). Thanks for the guidance!

      @e-roc: Glad we could help you out. This is only our second year in existence, but thanks to readers like you we’ve been pretty successful so far. We’re hoping to get even better next season, so if you have any recommendations on things that would be helpful to you that we don’t currently offer, please let us know!

    • @Brandon 11:06 am on December 22, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Keep up the good work. I’ll let you know if I think of anything. but for now, I’m looking forward to next August and your draft insight.

    Hits and Misses – Week 15: Time for an encore 

    In most of my leagues, week 15 means we’re two games away from a 2008 fantasy football championship, so the hits and misses this week are magnified dramatically. In some twist of fate, neither of my best fantasy teams were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs this year, meaning I’m right there with you in using my own advice to get to the next round.

    In terms of the action this weekend, it’s not usually my style to piggy back on a player (or players) who had a great game last week, but this weekend when Carolina hosts the Broncos, it’s too good to pass up. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart had a game for the ages in week 14 and while I don’t expect an exact repeat performance, something close would be nice! Anyways, let’s jump into the hits and misses for the week, starting with the Panthers two-headed monster…

    Hits

    • DeAngelo Williams / Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers (vs DEN): The new heirs to the Smash & Dash nickname played out of this world last week, with both Williams and Stewart breaking the century mark and scoring two touchdowns each against a Tampa Bay defense that had only allowed one rushing touchdown all season! While I don’t expect a repeat of those touchdown numbers this weekend, even against a worse defense, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see them run for 100 yards and a score each against a Broncos team that is giving up nearly five yards per carry and almost 140 rushing yards per game (and that includes some teams that are MUCH worse at running the ball than the Panthers.) I also need to mention that I recommended to a couple people that they start Jonathan Stewart over Pierre Thomas this week…so let’s hope steps it up and makes me look smart! (More …)

      Some player to watch for this week are Tyler Thigpen QB, KC – Devone Bess WR MIA, Reggie Williams WR JAC, Seneca Wallace QB, SEA, LeRon McClain RB BAL, and the KC DST. There are some Fantacy Pints Made To Be Here. Trust Me.

      Marion Barber isn’t worth the effert this week. He may get a couple of Fantacy Points before he gets hurt again

      @emmdawg52: Glad you agree with many of my picks for the week!

      Already looking forward to your Week 16 posts… My match-ups in the Championship game are horrendous atrocious….

    • Brandon 10:03 am on December 15, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @e-roc: Glad to hear you made the championship! I made it to the final game in two out of the three leagues that I was in the playoffs for, so I can’t complain too much.
