    In case you weren’t aware…

    QB Matt Schaub – Most likely out for the year with Lisfranc injury to his foot
    QB Matt Cassel – Possibly out for the year with injury to throwing hand
    RB Knowshon Moreno – Out for the year with torn ACL

    Say hello to Tyler Palko, Matt Leinart and Lance Ball!

      Hasselbeck is my current backup to Vick… You anticipate any of these guys to be a better backup QB option?

      • Brandon 1:24 pm on November 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Palko or Leinart? No. How about Carson Palmer though? Any chance he’s available?

        • jeff 1:35 pm on November 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Just checked and he’s taken… We have a deep league with 14 teams so it’s slim pickin’s. Hopefully Vick stays healthy. Thanks!

    Too early to give up on these guys? 

    Just felt like giving people a forum to mention players they had high hopes for going into their fantasy football draft, but who they’ve given up on already. I’ll start off the list with a couple guys who have been disappointing at best:

    • Frank Gore, RB, 49ers – Averaging a spectacular 2.5 yards per carry, Gore is earning his nickname Frank “The Bore” Gore (not to be confused with Frank “The Tank” Ricard.)
    • Jacoby Ford, WR, Raiders – I was hoping that Ford would breakout and become the uncontested #1 receiver in Oakland this year. However, early season injury problems and rookie Denarius Moore’s big game in week two make it hard to see him becoming a reliable, every week starter for a fantasy football team.
    • Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos – Do you have faith that this guy can stay healthy for an entire game?
    • Felix Jones, RB, Cowboys – One of my big sleeper-ish picks this year, with the assumption that he could at least stay healthy for a FEW games! The Cowboys just haven’t been able to put together a decent running attack over the past few years, even with some talented tailbacks.
    • Braylon Edwards, WR, 49ers – Not that I had great hopes for him to begin with, but I expected a little more than what we’ve seen so far. Now he gets surgery on his knee and is out for at least a few weeks.
    • Matt Cassel, QB, Chiefs – Threw for 27 touchdowns last year and with the team adding Steve Breaston in the offseason, many thought he could at least match those numbers. He’s currently on pace for eight touchdowns.
    There are plenty of other guys, I just had to stop before I got to depressed, but feel free to add the players that have already driven you crazy in this young season!

      Roddy White. I’m sure he’ll end up being just fine, but this is not what I expected with my 2nd round pick (10 team .5 PPR league, took Andre Johnson and Roddy White at 1 & 2.) The fact that Nate Burleson is riding the bench and has more fantasy points than Roddy is totally disappointing.

    • Kurt 4:19 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Gore isn’t running very well. He was awful against Dallas last week. Matt Cassel seems confused and just isn’t playing well. I’d keep him on the bench though just in case. Felix Jones is too hit or miss. He gets injured so much that he’s difficult to count on. But then he’ll have 2-4 breakout games…keep him around.

    • Christy 4:35 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I agree, especially with Jacoby Ford and Felix Jones. Do you think Jacoby Ford can be dropped in a 10-team non-PPR league?

      • e-roc 6:20 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I have Felix the Cat and just dropped Fordy 40 Dash for Run DMC Jr (McCluster).

        We should have seen KC’s & Cassel’s demise when Charlie Weis left the team….

      • Matt 7:45 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        10-team, yeah. He’s borderline in a 12-team.

    • Rick 8:49 pm on September 22, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Hey I need some help. Here’s my team..
      QB: Vick
      HB: S.Jackson, F.Jones, B.Tate, M.Ingram
      WR:K.Britt, S.Johnson, W.Welker, P.Harvin, E.Decker, S.Rice
      TE:T.Gonzalez
      D/ST:Bears, Lions
      K: R.Bironas

      I got offered Chris Johnson for Steven Jackson and Wes Welker. Should I do it??? Also any advice on what moves I should do with my team. Thanks

      • Chris 8:56 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        hey Rick,

        You need a backup QB… Fitzpatrick, Bradford< newton are still available on most leagues. Vick can get hurt any second. I would drop one of the D/ST for the backup QB.

      • Brandon 9:03 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Jackson and Welker seem like a bit much for Chris Johnson, who hasn’t done a whole lot this season yet. Welker will be one of the most consistent receivers in the league this year. If there are any big Vick fans in your league, maybe you can package Vick and Steven Jackson for an upgrade at RB and a solid QB (or two, if they have a spare, since you need one.)

    • Shane 3:57 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Just traded Gore to a Die Hard Niners fan who hasn’t yet lost faith in Gore. In Exchange i receive Arian Foster…..Thoughts?

      • Matt 7:44 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The question marks are pretty big on both players right now. By mid-season I think they’ll both look a lot more like their 2010 selves. I think in the short term your buddy will be happier with the trade, but by the end of the season you’ll probably be glad you made it.

    • Matt 7:42 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      We’ve been through two weeks. It’s too early to give up on anyone not on the IR.

      • Brandon 8:39 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Like Peyton Manning? 🙂

        You don’t have to drop them outright, but it’s probably safe to start lowering expectations for a few guys.

    • Jog_JMC 9:30 am on September 23, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I need 2…F.Jones, Hightower, Jacobs and McGahee???
      And Kolb over Big Boy Berger?..I think it’s a good move this week.

    Check your line-up this morning and make sure the following players are NOT starting…because they’re NOT playing:

    – Pierre Garcon (hamstring)
    – Reggie Bush (broken fibula)
    – Knowshon Moreno (hamstring)
    – Jerome Harrison
    – Nate Burleson

    Oh, and probably don’t start Chargers RB Ryan Mathews either, even if he someone manages to limp onto the field.

     
    • James 11:24 am on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah, Mathews and Moreno down for me this week. So I am kind of hurting at R.B. I am starting Hightower in my 12 team league as he is the best option I have left. But I need help for a R.B. #2. Either one will be far from #2 status but here we go. Correll Buckhalter, Benjarvus Green-Ellis, C.J. Spiller, Darren Sproles.(Tolbert and Maroney were picked up before I can Grab them) any advice would really help. Thanks.

      • Brandon 12:45 pm on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Go Buckhalter

        • james 1:01 pm on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Thats what I was thinking. Thanks for the Input.

      Vernon Davis or Aaron Hernandez as TE?

      • Brandon 12:57 pm on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Davis is low risk, high reward. Hernandez is high risk, potentially high reward. Stick with your main man Davis.

          I thought so, thanks for the last min advice.

      I also need flex advice Sproles or Knox? I was thinking knox since it should be a shootout.

      hey I would love your input. i need to choose a flex player – Austin Collie, Clinton Portis, Legedu Naanee, or Shonn Greene?

      • Brandon 12:22 pm on September 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Didn’t get to this one either. Who’d you start? Hopefully Collie 🙂

    • Danny 10:19 am on September 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Week 4 quarterback choice. Michael Vick or Tom Brady?. Dustin Keller vs Aaron Hernandez? Also im just wondering but hows your outlook on Peyton Hills and Darren McFadden. You think they’ll keep putting up these numbers?

      • Brandon 3:25 pm on September 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Haven’t yet started thinking about next weeks rankings, but will soon!

        As for McFadden and Hillis, I see DMC having much more staying power than Hillis.

    Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno ruled out 

    In case you were relying on Knowshon Moreno to have a solid game against a suspect Colts run defense, think again! The Denver Broncos running back has been ruled out for the game this weekend for some reason with a pulled hamstring, so get him out of your line-up! I’m not all that optimistic about his back-ups, but I guess Laurence Maroney may get a chance to redeem himself in some manner. However, Correll Buckhalter will most likely get first cracks at the opportunity.

     
    • Luke 9:41 pm on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      so… buckhalter or thomas jones?

      • Brandon 9:59 am on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Tough one there. T-Jones is better, but is playing a much better run defense. Because their offense is better and their is the small chance he could pull an Arian Foster on the Colts, go with Buckhalter. Hopefully it works out for you!

    • TJ 1:28 am on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Garçon is also out of that game. How much do you think that will bump up Collie? Did not consider him this week over Floyd or Clayton, but if Champ Bailey is healthy & can cover Wayne, Collie might be a great play.

      • Brandon 10:03 am on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I have all of them ranked at nearly the same spot and Garcon being out makes it an even tighter race. I’m leaning towards Clayton still, but I won’t criticize you for starting Collie or Floyd. Sorry I couldn’t be more help 🙂

    • TJ 9:59 pm on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon – Collie it was, he saved my day (thank you Champ Bailey). Opponent had Wayne, even sweeter.

      quick question…this week…i need to pick two WR..my choices are Hester, Massaquoi, Patrick Crayton, Berrian, Devry Henderson, or Lee Evans…I’m leaning towards Hester and Evans..i neeeeed a win this week to make the playoffs

      • Brandon 3:13 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You’re in the same boat as me in terms of needing to win to make the playoffs, but luckily I’m not relying on a wide receiver corps like that (no offense, hah.) Did you end up starting Evans? Hopefully not. If you did, I’d gamble on Devin Hester and hope he pulls out a big game against the Rams. If you didn’t play Evans, then put Henderson in there as well.

        • Squish 1:18 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’ve learned one thing about Henderson. He specifically only has big games (3 or more receptions) against teams that have great coverage. Because the coverage is great, Brees is forced to throw the ball his way. I bet he has a huge game against Carolina but little or nothing in the coming weeks with an average performance at Atlanta.

    • e-roc 1:49 pm on December 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Now I’m all flustered and confused… Mighty Mouse (w/Matt Moore!!) or Donnie Avery (v. bad Bears DEF: 24th PA)… Starting Wayne & Avant….

      • Brandon 3:11 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Donnie Avery is probably the safer pick at this point, but I would say that Steve Smith has more upside. Depends on how you’re feeling about your match-up this week 🙂

        • Squish 1:20 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I gotta go with Avery. Smith will likely see little action since they’ll be able to run at will. Avery has turned into a legitimate WR2 in recent weeks and looks to continue as he gets most of the red zone targets in STL.

        • e-roc 10:41 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’m going to hate myself more for not starting Smith with Matt Moore in at QB…

        • Brandon 10:52 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Hah, unfortunately I have to root for Steve Smith here, as I have him in my line-up in one of my biggest leagues. Let’s just hope both of them have huge games!

      Like your analysis, but Revis isn’t a rookie. This is his 3rd season.

        Well he’s the age of most rookies if that means anything.

        Hah, thanks for the update. Yeah I realized this after publishing the post and forgot to update it. Not sure why I thought he was a rookie, but either way, he’s been dominant.

    • Kamaps 4:45 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      So I have a problem…too many skilled players. Please help me pick out my starters? I have 2 WR spots, 1 RB spot, and a RB/WR spot. The players I have are:

      RB Maurice Jones-Drew, Jac RB
      RB Rock Cartwright, Was

      WR Miles Austin, Dal
      WR Mike Sims-Walker, Jac
      WR Jason Avant, Phi
      WR Chad Ochocinco, Cin

      I have MJD and Cartwright filling up the RB and RB/WR spots, with Austin and Sims-Walker in my WR spots, but all of them are expected big #s and I don’t know who to play. I’m nervous about Cartwright against New Orleans and I’m nervous about Sims-Walker also, but Ochocinco hasn’t been producing, so I’m confused. Please help.

      • Shane 6:42 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Stick with MJD but in the flex i would take Avant over Cartwright. Did you see him last week? He got stuffed at the line 3 times, 8 rushes for 3 of less yard, and none longer than 7. I like Austin and Ochocinco this week. I like Austin because the NYG D has been bad and its a division game. I like Chad because he has been talking about how his team doesn’t throw enough and they are playing Detroit who boasts an atrocious Pass D. Expect Palmer to throw all day.

      • craig 9:51 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Ochociinco and Miles Austin as your two starting receivers, MJD as your starting back, and Jason Avant at the flex spot especially if Desean Jackson doesn’t play after taking that big hit last week. For a whole list of week 13 must starts as well as everything else fantasy football related go to http://www.thefantasyfootballguru.com

        • Squish 1:07 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Gotta agree about the two WRs recommended by the other guys. MJD is a must start as well. As usual though I still like RBs better at the flex spot. Cartwright should have a monster day against an NO defense giving up the 7th most points in the league to opposing RBs. Considering he’s the only guy left on the squad at RB and that he’s had two solid games against rush defenses as the starter, I would consider him a low end RB2 in most leagues this week.

          I do agree that Avant is a very solid start if DJ is out but I’d take Cartwright otherwise and personally would take him either way.

    • TJ 5:46 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Quick one: Looks like Julius Jones is (supposedly) healthy and will start Sunday, possibly hurting Forsett’s numbers. I can play J Charles instead – hard to predict which Denver RunD will show up, but Charles might also have decent receiving numbers. Which one, you think, assuming Jones is “healthy”?

      • Squish 1:26 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Charles better for upside. He has been hot recently. You can expect 100 rushing yards at least but he may not get in the endzone since Denver’s red zone run defense is 9th in the league. I like to think they’ll utilize him as scat back this week too so expect some receiving numbers. Plus, there’s always that chance that he’ll take a return to the house!

      • Brandon 10:33 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Agree with Squish here, go with Charles.

    • Shane 6:37 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Forsett “Strained” his quad during practice today.
      Jones is a safe bet now because Forsett isn’t 100%

      • Ken 3:03 pm on December 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        i wouldn’t call JJ a safe bet. He hasn’t done much as a starter. And Forsett said he sat out as a precaution in practice. Its still possible that Forsett splits carries with Jones on sunday.

        As a Forsett owner this all pisses me off. At this point Id rather not have to rely on either back.

        I’d def play J Charles if I had him as an option. Him and Forsett are very similar backs and both have the possibility to make points as a receiver if the run game isn’t there…or even if it is lol. They’re great for PPR leagues

        • TJ 1:58 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks guys – now do you think Steven Jackson will play tomorrow? Cold Chicago may not help his back, unlike last week. I may need to use Forsett after all if SJax is inactive…..

        • Brandon 10:32 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Steven Jackson is expected to play and should put up solid points against a mediocre-at-best Bears defense. Keep him in your line-up.

      Chris Chambers

      • Squish 1:32 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Chambers this week out of that group. Snelling is my next choice since I have a hunch he’ll get a majority of the carries this week with Atlanta. Hester, Breaston and Brown just aren’t viable options at this point.

      • Brandon 10:31 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have to disagree with Squish here and actually like Chris Brown today. Looks like Steve Slaton is out and Brown should get the bulk of the carries against the Jaguars.

    • Matt 4:05 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      If Steven Jackson can’t go, I need one of the following for my RB2:
      1. C. Brown @ JAC
      2. J. Forsett vs. SF
      3. J. Norwood vs. PHI

      I also need a WR3:
      1. M. Colston @ WAS
      2. J. Avant @ ATL
      3. D. Hester vs. STL

      Also, between these two for a defense:
      1. New Orleans @ WAS
      2. Denver @ KC

      • Brandon 10:24 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I actually like Chris Brown at running back with Steve Slaton out this week. At wide receiver, Avant is a great play with DeSean Jackson out as well and finally, for your defense, I like the Saints this week. I think they’ll force Jason Campbell to make some bad throws and could end up with some solid points off interceptions.
