    Braylon Edwards signs with the San Francisco 49ers 

    Edwards just signed a one year deal with San Francisco for $3.5 million, which is apparently a little more than the Jets paid Plaxico Burress. How Braylon Edwards can swindle any team for that amount of money after what he’s going through off the field is beyond me. He does give Alex Smith some interesting receiving weapons if Michael Crabtree can get on the field, considering they also have one of the top tight ends in the game. I’m still wondering who will sign T.O. though.

    In other news, receiver Legedu Naanee has signed with the Carolina Panthers and will most likely start opposite Steve Smith. I’m not drafting him.

    In case you were curious, I just benched Hakeem Nicks in a league. I’m a bit worried about his questionable status and I have no other options after 4:15 if he’s a last minute scratch. I replaced him with Legedu Naanee, so hopefully I don’t lose too much, but it’s something you might consider if you’re not the risk taker!

      So…. is it totally crazy today to start Brandon Jackson instead of Arian Foster? I was thinking the Pack would be up early vs the Bill’s marshmallow defense, and the second half would be run, run, run……. and I can’t believe the ‘Skins will let Foster run all over them. I made the mistake last week of playing too conservative and benching Foster (idiotic..) at the last minute, got lucky and won anyway, but don’t want to feel like an idiot two weeks in a row.

        Still liking Foster more than Jackson this week, but not by much. If you’re up for a little more risk, you might go with B-Jax, who could have a higher ceiling based on his pass catching skills. Both are solid plays though. Good luck!

      • Matt 12:58 pm on September 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Benching Foster after last week’s performance would be insanity, especially given the fact that Jackson hasn’t proven anything in his career yet.

    • TJ 12:33 am on September 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      So I played Foster, but now I suppose I need to start thinking twice about leaving Jahvid Best on my bench…..unreal.

      • Brandon 8:21 am on September 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Best has 4 touchdowns on just 98 yards rushing!!! He seems pretty solid in the passing game though, with 14 receptions and 170 yards in just two games. He’s a monster in PPR leagues and I guess you have to start him, as long as you don’t care about his rushing yard totals 🙂 I wish I had him…

      • Dan 12:31 pm on September 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’m in a NFL.com standard league (no PPR, no flex slot, teams have to start 2 RBs and 3 WRs) and I had the very good problem of trying to figure out who to start at RB between Frank Gore, Arian Foster, Jahvid Best, and DeAngelo Williams… I went with Gore and Foster, and it was tough to see Best blow up on my bench.

        The trickier position for me is WR – I have Randy Moss, Calvin Johnson, Percy Harvin, Santana Moss, and Dwayne Bowe. Not really happy with their output thus far but not 100% ready to pull the trigger on trading/dropping any of them, either.

    • Brandon 8:23 am on September 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Most of the way through the game last night I thought I made the right move by benching Nicks, but in the end it was the wrong move. Lame. Hopefully he’s fine next week and I won’t have to worry about it…

    Monday night recap: Morals of the (fantasy) story 

    Jets: Not that you drafted Sanchez anyway, but it’s clear that he doesn’t belong on anyone’s fantasy team. (Ever?) Rex Ryan had plenty of reasons to look depressed at the post-game conference, but weighing most on his mind had to be the reality that his quarterback just isn’t very good, and this is a league that rewards good quarterback play above all else – just look at last year’s Super Bowl teams.

    The Ravens defense, despite a secondary with major injury woes, is still a top-notch unit, but there’s nothing good to say fantasy-wise about a Jets offense that mustered only 176 total yards of offense. Owners of Greene, Tomlinson, Cotchery and Keller would be ill-served by trading them now (their value has nowhere to go but up) – but I’m not all that optimistic that things will improve all that much. Until opposing defenses have a reason to respect the quarterback, they’ll be able to focus on stopping the run, and the offense will become incredibly frustrating to watch – trust me, as a Bills fan, I’ve been there. (Still am there.)

      Wow, that is one fast dude. Last night before the games they were showing the top speeds of running backs from Sunday’s games and Chris Johnson led the way, reaching 22 mph on his long touchdown run. I wonder how fast McCluster was going on this return?

      Who should get the flex spot (Randy moss) on revis island or mike williams in denver?

      • Brandon 1:33 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Randy Moss on Revis Island for sure.

      • Matt 1:56 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Anquan Boldin did just fine on The Island this week. Doesn’t mean that Moss will do the same, but it also means that you can’t bench your top WR. I always harp on this point – you just don’t bench top talent like Moss. You spent a considerable amount of draft capital on him, don’t let him blow up on your bench.

        • Nero 5:08 pm on September 17, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Randy Moss, but I got to disagree with Matt. I benched Boldin last week in favor of Naanee (wow, a whole 2% started him) and I won my first game by 2 points because of that decision – they had the same yardage, but Naanee got the TD that put me ahead for good. Every situation is different, but I benched my #1 WR (3rd round pick) for my 15th round selection … sometimes you gotta roll the dice.

          With that stated, I’d start Randy Moss … 😉

    The Wire – Week 2 Pick-ups: Austin Collie the new Pierre Garcon? 

    With week one of the fantasy football season almost in the books, it’s already time to start looking ahead to week two (especially in leagues where there is no waiver system for free agents.) Here are the players to consider on the waiver wire for week two. I’ll try to elaborate on this list after tonight’s games, but this should get you started…

    Wide Receivers

    • Austin Collie (IND): 10 catches, 131 yards, 1 TD. While a lot of the stats came on a single, 73-yard touchdown bomb late in the fourth quarter, the fact that he had 10 receptions means he was being looked at a lot over the course of the game. His primary competition for WR2 on the team, Pierre Garcon, finished with four catches for 75 yards. It’s still early, but it looks like it might be a crapshoot each week to figure out which guy does better.
    • Mark Clayton (STL): Was NOT expecting this one! Ten catches for 119 yards by a guy who was traded to the team just a week before and FROM a rookie quarterback. Looks like he’s the legit #1 in this passing game and while he may not rack up the touchdowns, he’ll definitely get a lot of looks.
    • Mike Thomas (JAX): It could end up being Thomas, not Mike Sims-Walker, who is the top receiver in the Jaguars offense this season. We’ll have to wait and see. He was one of my top sleeper picks this year though (got him on almost all of my teams!)
    • Legedu Naanee (SD): Looks like it could end up being Naanee, not Malcom Floyd, that benefits the most from Vincent Jackson’s absence. He finished Monday night’s game with 110 yards and a score, while Floyd only had 48 yards. Either way, Antonio Gates could end up having the best numbers of any pass catcher on the team, but Naanee could make a solid WR3 play most weeks if he keeps this up.

      FFGeeks:

      I have Roy Williams (DAL) as one of my back-up WRs. Both Clayton (STL) and Lloyd (DEN) are FA’s in my league. Should I keep Williams or get rid of him for one of these guys?

      • Brandon 11:01 am on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        That’s a tough one. If you don’t pick up Clayton, I’m sure someone else will snag him in your league. However, it’s only been one week and it’s tough to give up on a player (even if it is Roy Williams) so soon. I guess I’d drop him to grab Clayton though. He has much more upside, considering he’s the #1 target on the team, as opposed to Williams being the 4th target in the passing game. I wouldn’t drop him for Brandon Lloyd though. I think he just got lucky.

      Does anyone know a good site to see WR targets? Instead of just receptions?

        This one seems to do the trick. You have Roddy White on your team by chance? 🙂

        Wide Receiver targets

        • Chris 12:32 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          No but I was thinking of trading for him…moreno and terrell owens for white. Moreno was my back up, I’m starting Mathews and Foster. Mcfadden will be my backup.

        • Squish 1:04 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Yep, FFtoday is one of the better sites for tracking stats especially targets. Question:

          Do you think TO’s targets were a fluke or do you expect him to get thrown to that much every week?

      Concussion Party!

      Nice list of guys but isn’t Ryan Grant injured because of a concussion, not an ankle injury? I suspect Grant will play this week as one concussion doesn’t usually keep a guy out for long (though two is another story). Either wya, whoever is playing definitely deserves a start this week.

      • Squish 9:51 pm on September 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Disregard the part about grants concussion. That was last month lol! I read the wrong report by accident. One things for sure, Grant appears as fragile as ever this year.

          Hah, yeah I’m pretty happy I don’t have him on any of my teams.

    • Shane 2:37 am on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I know it early but…..
      Help with next week please.
      Start 5:
      Wayne @ NYG
      Austin @ Chi
      Boldin @ Cin
      Rice @ Cin
      MJD @ SD
      Thomas (NO) @ SF

      • Brandon 10:54 am on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Not sure how you ended up with all those players, but kudos to you 🙂

        Anyways, go Wayne, Austin, Boldin, Rice and MJD. The only consideration might be PT over Boldin, but considering what Anquan did to the Jets defense, I’d say he’s a pretty safe bet against a Bengals squad that got lit up by Tom Brady.

        • Shane 12:31 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah i got lucky in the draft. i had alot of key players that other people needed so i traded for their good players.
          Mcnabb for MJD preseason
          Slaton, Spiller for Wayne preseason
          and i just got ronnie brown in a trade.

      Should I pick up Collie in exchange for V.Jax? I think it’s time….

      Also, please help me pick three starting this week:

      > S. “Little Giant” Smith @ IND
      > H. “3 TD” Nicks @ IND
      > D. “My Favorite” Driver v. BUF
      > A. “if I pick up” Collie v. NYG

      Thanks!
      p.s. I’m kicking myself SO hard for not drafting Roddy White right now…. *kick kick kick* /wrist.

      • Brandon 1:40 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        That’s a tough one with V-Jax. If you don’t grab Collie now you’re not going to have a chance to the rest of the year I assume. However, I doubt he has many more games like the one he just had. Looking at your roster, it doesn’t seem you’ll really need to start either Jackson or Collie anyways though, so maybe it makes sense to just pick up Collie so you have someone dependable who will at least play.

        As for your wide receivers, ask me again once I have the User Requested Week 2 Rankings up 🙂

      Should i trade Moreno for Brandon Jackson??? i’m in a TD only league

      • Brandon 10:06 pm on September 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hmm, in a touchdown only league I don’t think I’d do this. Jackson will have value because he’ll be the first option in the running game for the Packers, but when it comes to the red zone, there are a lot of other targets on the team. Moreno had 7 touchdowns and doesn’t have a whole lot of competition when the team gets inside the five yard line or so.

        I’ve actually never done a touchdown only league, but I assume Moreno isn’t one of your starters? Who do you start at running back?

        • kyle 10:23 am on September 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          In the league I’m in we have two running backs and they always start. Mine are Moreno and D. Williams. They get 6 pts for a td and 6 pts if they break 100 yards

    • TJ 2:11 am on September 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Hey guys, lots of questions:
      -Still looking to improve my WR group (need one to start with Roddy White), wondering if you think any of these guys is worth trading in for the FAs below – I’m not thrilled with this group. We start 2, non-PPR.

      My team: Knox (but you never know who Cutler will throw to), Floyd (Brandon, you were absolutely right about him this week!), Garcon, Jac Jones
      FAs: It’s a 10 team league, so pretty much most of the mid and below guys went undrafted: What do you think about Clayton (a true #1WR?), Collie (I think I like him better than Garcon, but it’s just a tossup between those 2 every week), Mike Thomas, the Mike Williamses, Manningham, DEN wrs……too many to name.

      – D/ST – whose you’re favorite flavor of the week? I’m thinking about NE, Oak, Car, KC…. Our league scores 6pts for a return TD and a point for every 25 return yards.

      – I picked up Brandon Jackson for Ryan Grant today. Seems you guys and most people are not that impressed with him, but Yahoo Sports (Behrens) just loves the guy. McFadden is also available…… neither one likely to unseat Rice & Foster on my team, but I will need someone for byes.

      Thanks

      • TJ 2:25 am on September 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Also – I’m carrying 2 QBs at least through the byes, have Schaub with Alex Smith on my bench. What do you think about Mike Vick to replace Smith?

      • Brandon 10:25 am on September 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’ll work from the bottom up: I like Jackson over McFadden as your bye-week filler. I like New England and Carolina defenses this week.

        At wide receiver, I like Clayton more than Jacoby Jones, only because he’ll be the first option in the passing game all season. I like Thomas and Collie too, but Thomas is probably too deep for a 10 team league and you already have Garcon, so adding Collie would just add headaches when it came to deciding your line-up. I’d give Floyd another week to prove himself, but if he doesn’t do much, you may drop him next week as well.

        Hopefully I answered all your questions!
