    Ask the Geeks: Looking to go 2-0? 

    Hopefully some of the advice we offered last week helped your team to a 1-0 record to start the season, but if not, even more reason for you to heed our advice! Anyways, here are a few questions to get us started for week two. Remember to send us any more questions you might have here or you can leave questions via comments and we’ll try to respond to those too…

    Cynthia asks…

    I’m wondering who to start this week…Larry Johnson against Raiders although he did not produce at all last week or Cedric Benson @ Packers.

        Not sure exactly if that’s a question (or what the question is), but I like Santana Moss the best out of that group this week against the Rams.

      Hi Guys, I’m debate who to start at RB this week: Ray Rice, Marion Barber or Caddy Williams. What do the experts think?

      • Brandon 7:10 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        From best to worst: Ray Rice, Marion Barber, and Cadillac Williams…start Rice and Barber if you need two guys, Rice if you just need one.

        • Phill 7:30 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Hey Thanks! Yeah I’m starting 1, which will be Rice…thanks

      What would you do for a WR2 with these choices(Non PPR) – Earl Bennett, Chris Henry, Antonio Bryant or as a free agent I could pick up Stuckey, Clayton(Balt), Murphy, Meachem, or Deverey Henderson? I have Colston as WR1.

      • Brandon 11:45 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If you’re feeling a little risky, you might go with Devery Henderson, but you already have one Saints receiver and might not want to put all your eggs in one basket. The safer route would be with Mark Clayton or Earl Bennett. Clayton plays the easier defense (SD) of the two this week. If you have someone to drop to pick up Clayton, go with him, otherwise just go with Bennett and hope Cutler can kick it in gear for the big game this weekend against the Steelers!

    • Joey 2:42 pm on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      My WR2 choices this week: Lee Evans, Donald Driver, Justin Gage and I can pick up Earl Bennet, Randle El, Percy Harvin or Patrick Crayton.

      P.S. Start Flacco over Rivers, right?

      • Brandon 3:46 pm on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d take the gamble with Flacco and hope he can duplicate his performance from last week. As for receivers, Percy Harvin might be a sneaky play if you’re feeling risky, otherwise I’d recommend going with Donald Driver as the Packers (at home) should have a big game against the Bengals. If you have roster spots you can use, pick up Earl Bennett though, as I think he’ll be a solid play later in the season when the Bears play some lesser defenses.

    • jklemp 4:27 pm on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have a WR and a FLEX Position to fill…. I am considering the following players. Felix jones (rb) vs Giants, Fred Jackson (rb) vs Bucs, Julius Jones (rb) at SF, Earl Bennet (WR) vs Pitt, Donald Driver (wr) vs CIN, Pierre Garcon (wr) at Miami.

    Last minute hits and misses heading into your draft 

    If your league hasn’t had it’s draft yet (such as the two Matt and I are in), I felt it necessary to share my last minute thoughts on some key players at each position. I’ve created two teams, The Hits and The Misses, that include players you should target or avoid in your league’s draft. Keep in mind that I’ve intentionally left out some of the most obvious guys and focused on the players that you might not have thought about as much.

    The Hits

    QB: Aaron Rodgers, Packers – Rodgers quietly had one of the best years of any fantasy quarterback last season, throwing for over 4,000 yards and 28 touchdowns. The offense returns intact (and a bit healthier overall) and should allow Aaron to put up even better numbers this year. In many leagues, he’s being drafted after Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers and Kurt Warner, but when all is said and done, he could have better numbers than all three of them. (More …)

      Although I agree with you for most of your pics for hits and misses I think you may be looking a little low for your RB positions. Yeah Ryan Grant was good in 2008…but hamstring problems will seriously hamper him. It takes that bit of an edge of his running. I do expect him to improve….but not that much. You nearly have to include one of the guys in this list of Fantasy Football Halfbacks. Brandon Jacobs would probably have been my pick for someone who is going to have a massive year. The keyword being MASSIVE!!

      • Brandon 11:03 am on September 7, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Ryan, I was looking for the less-obvious guys who will have great years, so while I agree the other running backs on your list will do well, Grant is someone who may be getting overlooked in drafts. His hamstring injury should be behind him at this point and I think he’s primed for a great season…one like the second half of the 2007-08 season.

    Tonight is the real beginning of the preseason, so while we might have to wait a few more weeks to get a clearer picture, it’ll still be good to start answering the following questions:

    A) Is Tom Brady back to his normal, Pro Bowl self?
    B) Will the Raiders have any passing game at all?
    C) Which running back will the Ravens use primarily?
    D) With another year under his belt, does Kurt Warner still have what it takes to be a top notch quarterback?

    Also…Go Patriots!

    Quarterback rankings for 2009 

    Here are our quarterback rankings for this season. Don’t forget to check out the rest of our cheat sheets here.

    1. Tom Brady, NE – He looked great this past weekend and seems to have no lingering issues from the shoulder injury. Draft him with confidence and watch attempt to break the records again.
    2. Drew Brees, NO – Brees tops a lot of other site’s quarterback rankings, but maybe it’s a little Patriots-bias that puts him in the #2 spot on my list.
    3. Peyton Manning, IND – He’s still Peyton Manning and he’s still got Reggie Wayne (and others.)
    4. Philip Rivers, SD – Decent receivers, pass-catching tailbacks and Antonio Gates make for a lot of targets.
    5. Kurt Warner, ARI – As long as he remains healthy, he’s throwing to a pair of Pro-Bowlers (unless Anquan Boldin gets shipped out of town) and will continue to put up solid stats.
    6. Aaron Rodgers, GB – He’s got a great target to throw to in Greg Jennings.
    7. Donovan McNabb, PHI – Wide receivers still somewhat suspect, but McNabb will make the most with what he has.
    8. Matt Schaub, HOU – He gets the joy of throwing to Andre Johnson…one of the best receivers in the NFL.
    9. Tony Romo, DAL – DOWNGRADE! Roy Williams has been a disappointment so far and the rest of the receiving corps worries me.
    10. Matt Ryan, ATL – He’s primed for another solid year throwing to Roddy White and crew.
    11. Jay Cutler, CHI – His main target is a reformed kick returner, but I have enough faith in Cutler’s abilities to believe he can get it done with anyone running routes.
    12. (More …)

      Tom Brady is on top of my list as well.

      Are you interested in joining a bloggers / webmaster fantasy football league? It’ll be free, fun, good networking, and will give something to all to write about. Let me know!

    • Coolest Geek 5:37 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Tom Brady seems to be on top of EVERYONES list. Have you seen the YouTube reviews the fantasy selections?

      • Matt 7:24 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Nope. Got a link to share?

      • Brandon 8:27 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        He’s not at the top of the four site’s lists I linked to in the post (and a few more that I have seen this year), but I’m sure he is at the top of a lot of them, considering he’s not too far removed from a 4,800 yard, 50 TD season.

        • Matt 11:25 am on August 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I’ve definitely seen Brees atop most QB lists, but it goes without saying that there’s a case to be made for Brady. Hard to justify anyone else in the top 2, unless you value reliability over all else, in which case you might drop Brady to #3 and put Manning in the top 2.

      in a wr/rb slot i dont know who to play….desean jackson, bernard berrian, larry johnson, joseph addaih and darren sproles…HELP me out please

        Cody, just for your information, in the future we’ll make sure to do a better job responding to these if you send them as Ask the Geeks questions here: http://www.ffgeekblog.com/contact/

        Anyways, I’d go with DeSean Jackson in that spot to start the season. I think he’s poised for a breakout year and should put up some numbers in week 1. As for the other guys, they’re a lot of “wait and see what you get” type of guys that have question marks until the season starts. It might change in week two, but go with Jackson to start the year.

    Guest Post: Week 16 QB Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts

    1. Peyton Manning vs. Jacksonville Jaguars. As long as the AFC East teams keep winning, the Colts must do so, too. At least for one more week. And there’s nothing that Peyton and his teammates want more than to bury their rival in the process. Look for a big effort on Thursday night and at least 250 yards and 2TDs. Great fantasy start.

    2. Drew Brees vs. Detroit Lions. The Lions are just two games away from immortality, and one thing we know about them is that if they are going to pull off a win during the season, it won’t be because of their defense. Look for Brees to go gangbusters in this one and locate Colston, Moore, and Shockey throughout the game. (More …)
