    Hits & Misses – Week 12: Happy Thanksgiving! 

    awesome turkey graphicHere are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week twelve, listing players you want to make sure are in your lineup, as well as those you might consider shelving for the week (or at least lowering your expectations!) With Turkey Day right around the corner and a record three games being played tomorrow, we needed to post the hits and misses ASAP this week. As usual, I left off a few obvious picks from the list, including Ricky Williams running over the Bills, Larry Fitzgerald smoking the Titans secondary and Greg Jennings beating up on the Lions, but there is still plenty of picks to go around. Hopefully everyone has a great holiday weekend, filled with lots of fantasy football points!

      I need 2 out of the following, Laurence Maroney, Robert Meachem, Cadillac Williams, Bernard Scott, Devin Hester

      • Shirley 11:04 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d say Bernard Scott and Meacham/Cadillac.

      • Brandon 4:28 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey John, I have to disagree with Shirley slightly on this one. I agree with Bernard Scott (especially if Cedric Benson is ruled out again), but for your other spot I’d go with Laurence Maroney. I don’t trust Meachem against the Patriots defense, who has been pretty good at shutting down receivers this year.

          how do you think Colston going to do?

        • Matt 4:20 pm on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Colston’s been facing a great deal of double coverage lately and has seen his red zone targets go to others (especially Meachem) who don’t get as much attention from defenses. Hopefully for Colston owners, defenses are soon going to realize that doubling Colston does little good since Brees isn’t particularly dependent on any one target. At this point, though, I’d consider him just a WR2 since Brees is more than happy to spread the ball around and take what defenses are giving him.

    • Shirley 11:07 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have a good dilemma, I need to start two RBs: Bernard Scott (vs. CLE), Jason Snelling (vs. TB), Ryan Grant (vs. DET).

      I’m tempted to go Scott and Snelling because Scott’s going up against the Brownies and Snelling did great against the Giants last week. BUT Grant IS going up against the Lions…

      • Dennis 11:12 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would only start Scott if Benson is going to miss another game.

        • Shirley 11:28 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sorry for the confusion, the question was posed with the assumption that Scott and Snelling would both start. I also have Michael Turner and Cedric Benson on my team.

      • e-roc 1:20 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        IMO, you have to start Grant v. the Lions… then sit back and enjoy your turkey, stuffing, and apple pie while the Lions get the stuffing beat out of them again on Turkey Day sans Megatron and Stafford..

        • Jon 1:34 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Have to start Grant. Great game against Sanfrancisco and only will be better against Detroit. Has been coming on as the season progresses

      • Brandon 4:26 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Ryan Grant and Jason Snelling out of the three. At least you know Snelling and Grant will get the bulk of the carries, while it’s uncertain how the split will be in Cincinnati, especially if Benson plays.

        • Johnny 10:23 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I have Snelling and was going to start him but I heard that Turner might play on Sun since he practiced today, should I start Beanie Wells or Reggi Bush?

        • Shirley 8:50 pm on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I think I read that Norwood may be coming back which would cut into Snelling’s carries.

      • Matt 7:33 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Scott’s a must-start if Benson’s out.

    • Dennis 11:11 am on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need help. Pick 2… Pierre Thomas, Smith(NYG), Bernard Scott, Hightower, or Cartwright
      Better QB Hasselbeck or Alex Smith?

      • e-roc 1:18 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hasselback has a juicy matchup v. the Rams, but the Seahawks don’t play very well on the road… I think Smith has more upside and is a sneaky start this week at home v. the Jags.

        • Dennis 2:54 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          What about the other part?

      • Brandon 4:20 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Dennis, if it turns out that Cedric Benson won’t play, go with Bernard Scott and Pierre Thomas. Otherwise, plug Steve Smith in there. At quarterback, I’d go with Matt Hasselbeck and hope for a repeat of his week one performance against the Rams (minus the interceptions.)

    • e-roc 1:30 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon – was this your way of answering some of my AtG questions? Haha. I guess I’ll be starting T.Jones and stashing McCoy, K.Smith and Mighty Mouse this weekend.

      The Crabtree recommendation confuses me because I’m already wondering if Alex Smith > McNabb this week.

      • Brandon 4:18 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, no actually, but hopefully it can start answering peoples questions anyways! Anyhow, if it makes you feel better, I’d still start Steve Smith over Michael Crabtree (maybe it confuses more?) I put Steve Smith as a Miss, when compared to other WR1 and WR2’s, while Crabtree is a Hit, when compared to other WR3’s.

        In terms of McNabb and Smith, it’s hard to bench McNabb when the team is so pass-oriented. I’d stick with Donovan, even with a tougher match-up.

    • Jon 1:30 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I need 1 – Greg Jennings, Steve Smith (NYG), Percy Harvin.

      My other two receivers are sydney rice and desean Jackson.

      Help.

      • Brandon 4:13 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Greg Jennings of course…he’s the one on my Hit list! (Update: He’s not on my hit list, but I mention him in the introduction as a great play!)

    • ryan 3:07 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      K I have 2 questions this week.

      First. Would you start maclin or cotchery?

      second. Would you start Mendenhall or F. Jackson (they both have bad matchups)?

      • Brandon 4:10 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with Maclin, just because I think the Eagles will throw twice as much as the Jets (and twice as effectively as Sanchez!) At running back, go with Mendenhall, since there is still a chance Marshawn Lynch could play and steal carries from Jackson.

    • Mal 5:45 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hmm just like one more opinion on these WR (they are waiver dregs)

      S Moss (@PHI)
      Floyd (KC)
      Northcutt (if Megatron doesn’t play) (GB)
      Bennett (@MIN)
      Britt (ARI)

      • Brandon 8:30 pm on November 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m up for taking the risk on Malcom Floyd against the Chiefs this weekend if you haven’t already made your decision.

      I have a chance to pick up chris chambers off of the waiver wire. Im looking to drop breaston or moss. Im thinking moss this is definitely a smart move ?

      • Squish 10:10 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I actually made the same move in several leagues. Go ahead and drop Moss and he’s definitely useless this year. Breaston could still have a few big games in him and we know Chambers should be solid the rest of the year thanks to the lack of options in KC.

        • Helplease 2:16 pm on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks did it and also dropped Breaston while I was at it and grabbed Maclin. After seeing last week where they threw not one pass his way. So this is my team in a must win situation. PPR league where there’s 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR 1 FLEX 1 K 1 DE I went ahead and didn’t play Kevin Smith today against GB. How would you go with this line up. I feel my WRs are all good and have potential for big games it just comes down to match ups. Thanks.

          QB Donovan McNabb
          Eli Manning NYG
          RB Maurice Jones-Drew
          Jason Snelling
          Kevin Smith DET
          WR Chris Chambers
          Santonio Holmes
          Mike Sims-Walker
          Michael Crabtree
          Jeremy Maclin
          TE Zach Miller
          Fred Davis David Akers
          DE Arizona Cardinals
          Philadelphia Eagles

      1 PPR League for week 12…who would you start at my 2nd RB spot?

      Benson, Scott (I realize Benson if he is healthy but could you give me scenarios for which I should avoid either one – i.e. – they are going to split carries), Forsett, Cartwright, B. Wells, Fargas

      I really can’t screw this decision up. I’m in a four-way tie with 3 other teams at 6-5. We currently occupy spots 3-6 if the playoffs started today (we only get 6 in out of 12 teams). The team I’m playing is also 6-5.

      • Squish 10:09 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think you have to wait to here what’s going on in Cinci. If Benson and Scott both play, Forsett may end up being a better play than either of them. If Benson doesn’t play, definitely play Scott. You’ll have to wait to make your decision.

      Help!!!!! Do I start Eli Manning or Warner?

      • Squish 10:08 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d have to go with Warner. It looks like he’s fine to play and he has a great matchup.

        Eli’s matchup isn’t too good against a great Denver pass rush that’s third in the league in pass defense.

        Go with Warner

    • Squish 10:12 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Man, I’m torn right now between playing the Eagles defense or Packers defense this week. I think I’ll probably just play the Packer’s defense so I have something to watch today (despite their injuries). They should do fine.

      • Brandon 8:22 pm on November 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hopefully you did indeed play the Packers, as they ended up with a pretty solid performance!

        If your league awards points for return yards, I’d go with Percy Harvin. Otherwise though, I think Crabtree is in for a solid game against the Jaguars this Sunday.

      i was hoping for a big game from finley too this week…and then donald lee showed up stealing points from him. GB loves to play “which guy is it going to be this week” with their TE and WR’s. Eff Driver and Lee for stealing points away from my guys Jennings and Finley lol.

          lol yea. There was no logical reason to see the game turn out that way. Def a shock to see Lee get as many plays and looks as he did with how well Finley played before his injury and after.

          And Jennings is frustrating as all hell. I can understand when Rodgers sees pressure…but against the lions…argg

        Although the Bears offense is a constant source of frustration, I think you want to start Hester today, as his match-up is a lot better and the last time the Chargers/Chiefs played, Matt Cassel had a rough day.

    Fantasy storylines to watch this weekend 

    Plenty of fantasy intrigue around the league in week 10. Here are a few situations I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on.

    Joe Flacco @ Cleveland: Wacko Flacco (sorry) has been shaky lately, so it’ll be interesting to see him take on a team that he played well against earlier in the season (342 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, 111.8 passer rating in week 3). If Flacco can repeat or improve upon that performance, he’ll reestablish himself as a startable fantasy QB when the matchup’s right.

    LeSean McCoy/Brian Westbrook vs. San Diego: How shaky is Westbrook’s ankle? Will McCoy continue to make a convincing case for more touches? Andy Reid just watched the division lead get ripped away from him by the surging Cowboys, so it’ll be interesting to see which running back he favors when push comes to shove.

      hey matt what s up? good to see you at the wedding.. all i can say is that doesn’t jason witten have to score a touchdown sooner or later…. bench him for zach miller against KC? what s your call?

      • Matt 10:57 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Dan! Knew you’d find the blog eventually. 🙂

        I’ve been wrong about Witten all season (not that anyone’s been right about him), so at this point I don’t know what to say. Benching Witten in fantasy football feels like benching Chris Paul in fantasy basketball – they both should be the best at their position, so it’s puzzling to see Witten fall off the planet and a guy like Miles Austin take center stage. Thing is, he continues to catch passes – seven receptions last week – which usually is what you look for in a tight end. He just hasn’t broken any big plays or been a major factor in the end zone this year.

        Would I start Zach Miller in his place? No. He’s a Raider. ‘Nuff said. But there are several other decent tight ends who would make a better start than Witten at this point (off the top of my head, Olsen, Celek, the other Miller, Gates, Gonzo, V. Davis, Clark, Shockey).

    • Squish 2:24 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Flacco the person to watch against Cleveland?! He doesn’t even have to play that game. Give Ray Rice the ball in the wildcat every play of the game and they’ll win by 40.

      In my mind Flacoo’s already legitimately start-able. However, with how weak half their schedule is, I don’t pretend they need to pass the ball to win games like this one.

      • Matt 10:49 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That’s actually a large part of what I’m getting at. The Ravens are in flux right now after losing four of their last five, and it will be interesting to see whether they focus more on the run or the pass as they try to rediscover their winning ways.

    • Ken 2:44 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      it would be a blast if CJ topped his week 2 performance in buffalo. If its possible for him to top that game, buffalo’s the team to do it against.

      I wish my rb situation was anywhere near to that productive haha. Finally managed to get a trade off…traded Nicks, Knox and Sammy Morris for Addai. Considering my depth at WR, I think I got a steal. (fitzgerald, sims-walker, jennings, devin hester, steve breaston)

      Although Im still left with a choice between Mike Bell and Shon Greene as my RB2. Any suggestions? I think Greene has the potential for more touches overall, and the Jags don’t have a great rush def. But if the saints pop out early, and go to run for most of the game, I’m thinking Bell could get a lot of 3rd and 4th qtr work.

      Think its worth putting Bell in over Greene despite him losing the battle to PT?

      • Squish 3:26 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah Ken, you got a steal there. You gave up 3 guys with barely any fantasy relavance for an all intensive purposes stud. WTG!

        I’d say definitely play Green at RB this week over Bell. Bell has dropped to 3rd on NOs depth chart at RB and he lost a key fumble last week. I wouldn’t expect much out of him this year now that the rest of the rB core there is healthy. Green should at least get 13 or so touches guaranteed and will be most useful in the receiving game I think. If it’s PPR Green looks even better but I’d say play him either way as he’ll be used at least twice as much as Bell.

      • e-roc 9:07 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        IMO, I think you’ll get the same amount of production/points out of either player.

      • Matt 4:32 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yep, nice trade. Sounds like you found an Addai hater who just wanted to dump him and be done with him.

        Bell and Greene are both risky in the same way – neither is the starter, both have talent and a good matchup this week, and for both of them their production will depend largely upon how the game goes and what the defense is giving up. If one of them has a big game, it’ll be because he broke off a big play, not because he touched the ball 20 times.

        I can’t call this one. Go with your gut.

    • Shane 3:16 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Keeping an eye on the Seattle @ Arizona game. if it goes south for Seattle look for them to give up hope and lose their drive to produce. Seattle and Hasselbeck need to win this game to maintain fantasy relevance,

        Good point. It’s never ideal to own a good player on a doomed team.

    • Shirley 7:33 am on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Which of these WRs do I start: Crabtree, Breaston or Cotchery?
      Crabtree has a game today.
      Boldin should be playing this week which brings Breaston back down to a WR3 but Breaston had 77 yards and a touchdown earlier this season against SEA.
      Cotchery is doing pretty well when he’s not injured and he’s going up against JAC which has a bad pass defense.

      I think my main question is do I start Crabtree or the other guys? I really hate it when I have players that have games on Thursdays because you’re really forced to make a quick decision. *sigh*

      • Matt 4:35 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think it’s a little early to trust Crabtree over a known commodity like Breaston, who despite being a WR3 sees consistent action and is on pace for a 1,000-yard season.

    The Wire – Week 8: What Can Greene Do for You? 

    Here are our waiver wire candidates for week eight. As usual, you’ll find players who are either [Startable], a [Stopgap] to get you past a BYE or injury, [Worth a look] and spot on your bench, or [One-week-wonder]s who don’t warrant a roster spot, so you make your roster moves accordingly. You’ll also see the percent owned in parenthesis (and if you see an asterisk by the players name, it means they’re on a BYE this week.)

    We’re finally starting to narrow down the list, with only a few new additions this week and a bunch taken off. The biggest additions by far will be Jets running back Shonn Greene, who is replacing the injured Leon Washington as the backup to Thomas Jones, along with the newly anointed 49ers quarterback, Alex Smith. If you counted on Leon Washington or Shaun Hill (probably less people counting on him), you better take a shot at the waiver wire and see what you can do. Anyways, let’s get to The Wire for this coming week…

        I’m trying to shop Ryan Grant as I have him, Michael Turner, Cedric Benson and Rashard Mendenhall after Grant had a big game in Cleveland.
        Here is a list of some receivers that I think are reachable on teams who don’t have much depth at RB: Greg Jennings, Sidney Rice, Miles Austin, Nate Burleson, Mike Sims-Walker
        Please rank who I should go for. I just won my first game this season so I need someone to give me a decent number of points each week. My current WRs are Derrick Mason, Roddy White, Lance Moore and Anthony Gonzalez. If you can come up with any other names that are in the ballpark, I’d welcome those as well. Thanks.

        • Brandon 12:09 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          You have some solid receivers already, but I think Greg Jennings is a great target now as his value might be down a bit due to his one touchdown this year. Rice and Austin are not worth trading for now because they’ve been so hot lately. I love Sims-Walker too, so he’s a good target.

      • Brandon 6:38 pm on October 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would list Charles more as a “Stopgap”, as I don’t see him as someone that will be able to put up starter-worthy numbers on a consistent basis. There is no sign that he’s a better runner than LJ was (just happens to be the backup) and we saw what Johnson did in this offense.

        As for their rank going forward, I’d go Greene, Wells and Charles.

      Thanks!

        I’m not quite sure what you’re asking with regards to Shiancoe and Greene, but it would be good if you could replace Cooley with Shiancoe AND get Shonn Greene…is that possible?

        As for your wide receivers, Torry Holt is a solid play against the Titans and should put up serviceable numbers for the rest of the year (probably a little more consistent than Massaquoi.)

        Hopefully this answers some (all?) of your questions!

      Hey Brandon,
      Should I drop Jeremy Maclin for TJ Houshmandzadeh on waiver wire?
      also should I drop Laurence Maroney for Bennie Wells on waive wire?

      • Brandon 10:16 pm on October 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d say definitely on the Beanie Wells move…but the other move is a bit trickier. I think Housh will be more consistent than Maclin, but Maclin has more upside from week to week. If you’re looking for a steady source of 6-12 fantasy points, Housh is probably your man. If you can handle a 2 point game here and a 20 point game there, then Maclin will do the trick. They both make for decent WR3’s though.

        • Amir 2:26 pm on October 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I like Housh’s value (a lot more than Maclin) moving forward. Seattle has been a weird team this year as their games have all been decided by at least 3 TDs (wins and losses) — that issue along with Housh getting used to the offense should have been looked at during their bye week and hopefully figured out

          I like Housh going forward — he is still getting a ton of catches and theyll figure out how to get him into the end zone hes too good to not score!

        My gut reaction at first was to go with Roy Williams, however given the evident bromance rocking with Romo and Austin (for obvious reasons), I just don’t see Williams getting the touches particularly after being injured. Give him a week or two longer and go with Kelly Washington for now.

        I wouldn’t trade him now, as his value is about as low is it can go. Once he returns from injury, he should start putting up solid numbers again, hopefully right about the time your team is making a late season push to the playoffs.

    The Wire – Week 4: Time to wake up and smell the Coffee 

    Here’s our waiver wire recommendations heading into week four, leading off with a guy who should have been a mandatory handcuff heading into the season, but apparently was not. As usual, The Wire is organized into four categories: Get ’em in there, Pick up and hold, Stopgaps, and Pretenders. “Get ’em in there” are the players worth of a start right away, while “Stopgaps” are the players who will get you through a short-term injury or bye week. “Pick up and hold” is just what is sounds like and “Pretenders” are those players who might have had one good week and immediately picked up in every Yahoo Public league out there…don’t waste a roster spot and waiver claim on them. In addition, you’ll find the Yahoo! ownership rank (in parenthesis) for each player so you know which guys have a better chance of being available in your league.

    UPDATE! I’ve added Tashard Choice and Dante Rosario to this list after last night’s game, just to let you know.

    Get ’em in there

    • Glen Coffee, RB, 49ers (48%) – It looks like Frank Gore will be out a week or two, so all of you who handcuffed Coffee to him in the draft are happy right now…the others, not so much. Glen didn’t play all that well, but he was going against a tough Vikings defense. He should put up decent numbers in Gore’s absense, as the team plays the Rams and Falcons in their next two games.
    • Denver DEF (64%) – Who ever thought they’d be the top ranked defense after three weeks?! Seems that they’re the real deal.
    • Correll Buckhalter, RB, Broncos (67%) – He had 108 yards on Sunday and while he splits carries with Knowshon Moreno, he makes for a decent injury fill-in RB2 or flex play from week-to-week.
    • Mike Sims-Walker, WR, Jaguars (69%) – Sims-Walker is trying his hardest to wrestle the WR1 role away from Torry Holt and now has 12 receptions over his past two games. He makes a decent WR3 or flex play at this point.
    • Brent Celek, TE, Eagles (79%) – This guy is one of the best tight ends in the league so far this season and is still only owned in 79% of the leagues out there. I assume he’ll be taken in at least 95% after Sunday’s 104 yard and a touchdown performance.

    (More …)

      I currently have Carlson and Olsen for my TEs (I started Olsen week one and two with no luck.. switched to Carlson for week 3 and guess what? Olsen had a great game on my bench).. Now I am unsure of what to do with Either of them and Brent Celek is available for me to grab up. Any words of wisdom?

      • Squish 2:37 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I was an Olsen owner in many of my leagues and I’ve been dumping him by the wayside. Even though his game looked decent, he still didn’t do too well overall. Until this week, he was only the third ranked TE ON HIS OWN TEAM! I’d keep carlson as he’s still getting plenty of targets. If Celek is available, go after him! He’s the most targeted TE so far this year and both Kolb and Mcnabb like throwing to him.

      • Brandon 8:34 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        As Squish says, grab Celek for sure. The guy has been HUGE so far this season. As for the other two guys, I still think Olsen has more upside and his receptions have increased each week. Carlson has more value when Hasselbeck is the team’s quarterback, so the sooner he can come back, the better.

        • Wolf 10:17 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Well, due to the byes coming up, I am already squeezing one extra bench around to fill in spots, so to pick up Celek means dropping Olsen or Carlson.. and Celek has a Bye week, so I have to play whoever I keep. Olsen is up against the Lions this week (Carlson is against Colts), so would you agree I should drop Carlson for Celek and then play Olsen during week 4?

        • Brandon 10:31 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah I think it’s worth it to drop Carlson and play Olsen this week, if it means you have Celek on your team for the rest of the season.

    • Eric 9:54 pm on September 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Fellas – I’m contemplating a big risk-reward kind of trade right now. We start 1 QB, 2 RBs, and 4 WRs, no flex backs. I’m pretty solid at RB and QB – McGahee, LT, Gore, and Brown (at least once everyone is healthy) and Warner/Flacco/Palmer. I’m not so hot at WR… Braylon, Henderson, Bryant, Moore, Bennet, Sims-Walker, and Breaston… Although Sims-Walker and Breaston are showing life, and I have faith in Henderson/Moore most weeks. One of the guys in my league is pretty solid at WR, but needs a backup QB, and his best RB is Slaton, even with his slow start. He also has Berrian, who I think could have a big rest of the season now that Favre is starting to heat up and throw more downfield. I’m thinking about offering McGahee and Palmer for Slaton and Berrian… crazy or a solid risk play given my situation?

      • Brandon 8:39 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t trade McGahee, even for Slaton at this point. The Ravens offense is running on all cylinders right now and Willis is their goalline guy. Plus, you probably want to target a better receiver, as I don’t see Berrian being much better this year than the guys you already have. As you’ve seen already from the Vikings, most of the time they run the offense through Adrian Peterson, so Favre has to do his best to distribute the ball to Harvin, Rice, Berrian, Taylor and Shiancoe.

    • Shirley 11:27 pm on September 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Even though week 3 isn’t officially over, I’m 0-3 in one league which will put me again #1 in the waiver order with which I’ll take Pierre Garcon….

      Dilemma #1: I have Hasselbeck & Warner at QB. Warner has a bye and I don’t know if Hasselbeck will be back next week.
      I wanted to grab the 49ers DST (vs. STL) to replace Packers DST (vs. MIN) to start & sit Jets DST (@NO). Since it seems you can’t count on defenses to do well or poorly as predicted, should I just find pick up a QB on the waiver wire and drop the Packers DST?
      ON WAIVER WIRE — Brett Favre, Josh Johnson, Kyle Boller, Matthew Stafford, Seneca Wallace, & Chad Henne

      Dilemma #2: I have 4 RBs (Ryan Grant, Michael Turner, LeSean McCoy & LenDale White. Turner & McCoy have a bye next week.
      This wouldn’t be a problem but I want to try and offer one of my RBs to a player who has banged up or mediocre RBs in order to get DeSean Jackson.
      List of my current WRs: Derrick Mason, Roddy White, Mario Manningham, & Michael Clayton (will drop him for Garcon).
      So assuming the owner will go for it, should I trade a RB to get DeSean?

      • Brandon 8:42 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Defenses are really hard to predict in most cases, so I would focus your waiver pick on a position player. Brett Favre looked really good last week and will probably put up the best numbers out of all those guys you mentioned. Given how the Bills played against the Saints this past weekend, you might just keep in the Jets defense, as they look pretty solid these days.

    • Bob 11:48 am on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I was offered Shaub for Slaton before this weeks games. Don’t know if the other owner will still do it but do you think it’s a good trade? I’m concerned that Kubiak is going to continue the Slaton – Brown (semi) time share with Brown vulturing TD’s. Will Brown’s fumble this week will give Slaton an opening for some red zone touches? Also, with the Texans defense being so miserable Schaub should be throwing a whole lot more when they are behind.

      • Brandon 3:58 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        It seems that this season the offense is going through Matt Schaub, as opposed to Steve Slaton like last year. The passing game is off to a great start, while the team can’t seem to run the ball with any consistency. It depends on who your quarterback is though, as well as your other running backs.

        • Bob 7:13 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I have Flacco and Farve as my QB’s and Gore, Coffee, Rice, and Moreno as my RB’s. Thanks!

        • Brandon 8:50 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          With that group of running backs, you might want to keep Slaton around. I know he’s struggled early, but he should turn it around and put up better numbers than Moreno and Rice in the long run. Your quarterbacks should hold down the position if you play the match-ups (Flacco is much improved over last year!)

    • Jones 1:13 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      This week in my league TJ Housh, Santana Moss and Wes Welker were dropped from teams. Mike Sims-Walker is also available. My WR’s right now are Wayne, Driver, Smith (NYG), Harvin and Evans. I’m thinking of dropping Evans and adding Moss.

      • Brandon 3:54 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, that’s crazy that those guys were dropped and they should all be universally owned (even if they’re of to rough starts.) How many teams are in your league? I like Welker the most out of the group, as he’ll be putting up solid numbers once he actually gets back on the field. Can you pick them all up? Hah. Maybe you can trade some of your receivers and pick up those guys, as they should put up solid numbers at the position for your squad.

        • Jones 3:53 pm on September 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          8 teams in the league. I can’t pick them all up because these are my RBs (Gore, Westbrook, Williams) so I have to pick up Coffee or Choice by dropping R Bush. I already picked up Welker when I saw he was dropped and I’m going to try to add S Moss by dropping Evans. Would you drop Harvin for TJ Housh?

        • Brandon 9:51 pm on September 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          That’s a tough one. If your league awards points for return yards, definitely stick with Harvin. You might just wait a week or two and see if Housh is still available. By then, maybe your situation has changed and you’re in need of his services, but until then, it looks like your team should be more than equipped to hold down the WR position.

      • RB 8:25 pm on September 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would need to see Harvin have a bad week first, and see Hasselback return. Last week with Seneca QB’ing in Seattle, Burleson was target number 1, not Housh. I’d ride Harvin until you see some cracks.

      should i drop mike bell for tashard choice?

      • Brandon 3:51 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Choice has the most immediate value, as Bell is still nursing an injury at this point. When Mike Bell returns, he’ll most likely be the backup to Pierre Thomas, who looked really good this past weekend. Once Marion Barber and Felix Jones are back though, Choice’s value diminishes dramatically. Not sure if this helped at all, but if you shed a little more light on what you are looking from either of these guys (start right away, depth, etc) maybe we can be more helpful.

        I would say Felix Jones, but he’s injured now and will probably miss a game or so. Tashard Choice makes a solid play if Barber and Jones are still limited, but in the long term he’s won’t be too productive if the other guys are healthy. Knowshon Moreno and Leon Washington are both going to see plenty of carries in their respective offenses, but I’m leaning towards Moreno. He should get more and more carries as long as he remains productive, while I think Washington’s role in the offense is pretty well determined at this point.

        • Brandon 8:47 pm on September 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I definitely wouldn’t drop Hines Ward for Mike Sims-Walker at this point. I think Sims-Walker is going to be pretty inconsistent this year, while Ward should put up decent numbers each week.

          As for your running backs, Julius Jones doesn’t have a Cadillac Williams-type guy to compete with, so he has a better chance to get the majority of the carries for his team from week to week. I would make that move.

          In terms of dropping the Chargers, I’d definitely do this if you A) have Frank Gore and/or B) have a decent defense to play and don’t need SD.

          By the way, in case you were thinking about it, don’t drop Santonio Holmes. You might wait for a breakout game and trade him if you really don’t like him, but he’s too good to send to waivers.

        I recommended keeping Olsen over John Carlson, not sure where you are referring to. As for McGahee vs. Slaton, maybe McGahee’s the hot hand and maybe Slaton’s better long term, but right now everything is leaning in Willis’ favor. Do you think Willis McGahee’s production is going to drop off a lot for the rest of the season? I don’t see it happening. I see McGahee/Rice as last years Chris Johnson/LenDale White or DeAngelo Williams/Jonathan Stewart.

      My league starts 2 QBs and one of the teams has both qbs on bye. While there are qbs available on ww because of injuries/benchings, I may have a shot at trading one of my qbs. I have Peyton Manning, Trent Edwards and Kyle Orton. I was thinking of offering Orton (still undecided if I like him better than Edwards) and Lance Moore for Delhomme and Welker. Not sure that he’ll accept it but what are your thoughts? I may have to throw in Derrick Ward or Bradshaw for Coffee to sweeten the deal. Would you still do it? I have AP and Benson as my other rbs.

      • Brandon 10:01 pm on September 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If Welker improves your WR corps, then that trade seems to make sense. Are there any quarterbacks on free agency? How will you fill your QB spots when you have bye weeks? In terms of adding any running backs, I’d stick with Ward and Bradshaw if possible.

    The Wire – Week 3: Plaxico who? 

    Here’s our waiver wire recommendations for week two, starting with a pair of receivers who seemed to have solved the questions the Giants had at the position. As I mentioned last week, The Wire is organized into four categories: Get ’em in there, Pick up and hold, Stopgaps, and Pretenders. “Get ’em in there” are the players worth of a start right away, while “Stopgaps” are the players who will get you through a short-term injury or bye week. “Pick up and hold” is just what is sounds like and “Pretenders” are those players who might have had one good week and immediately picked up in every Yahoo Public league out there…don’t waste a roster spot and waiver claim on them. This week I’ve added the Yahoo! ownership rank (in parenthesis) for each player so you know which guys have a better chance of being available in your league. Anyways, here we go…

    Get ’em in there

    • Mario Manningham, WR, Giants (58%) – He’s rocketed up from being a “Pretender” to having me believe he and Smith will be the Giants top receivers this season.
    • Steve Smith, WR, Giants (70%) – Looks like he’s become Plaxico Burress’ replacement and should be Eli’s top target all year.
    • Correll Buckhalter, RB, Broncos (48%) – As long as he stays healthy, it looks like Buckhalter is the man in Denver. He’s worth starting as a borderline RB2 or flex play based on the match-up.
    • Brent Celek, TE, Eagles (49%) – Celek showed some skills last season and it has apparently carried over, as he’s now put up solid numbers in two straight weeks. If you’re not getting production out of your current tight end, give Celek a try.

      Another good waiver list! Mine always seem quite a bit shorter but you hit on every guys I’d consider grabbing.

      I’m currently big on Manningham and Knox at WR but I’m only watching everyone else. Henderson is looking good now but I have to believe that Brees will let up eventually and when he does, the WR situation in NO will be a crapshoot. Colston’s presence increased ad Moore is still out. I have to believe that once things even out in NO, Henderson won’t be much better than an WR3. Manningham and Knox however could easily grab WR2 status.

      At RB I agree for the most part. Bell is now a must own. I think its a little early to pick up Forsett even if he starts next week. I have Buckhalter in several leagues but its hard to believe Moreno won’t start getting the better half of the carries eventually. I wish I was lucky enough to be in a league with Brown unowned lol. Another suggestion to think about, Darren Sproles. I realize he should be owned in every league but I found him on waivers in better than half of my FleaFlicker leagues.

      I think we can all agree that the glass is full when it comes to TEs. I’d only consider picking up Celek at the moment but in deeper leagues Heap is worthwhile too.

      I was surprised not to see any QBs on your list. Surely Leftwich is at least worth picking up and holding. He’s ranked 10th right now in most formats just ahead of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. The best part is that there is no way his offense can get any worse. If anything it will get better and he’s made the most of having Winslow as a target. Once Bryant gets up to speed, watchout! I’m grabbing him in all leagues that I’m weak at QB2. He was always the better of the two QBs in Jacksonville before. Watch him easily surpass Garrard this year. He’s easily worth dropping Sanchez among others (Delhomme, Pennington, Campbell).

      On another note, I have a question. Would you guys consider dropping either Walter, S. Moss, or Eddie Royal in standard leagues to pick up one of the WRs mentioned on your list? Also, is it dump time for J. Jones or Olsen yet?

        Good point on the lack of quarterbacks, maybe the site malfunctions have distracted me a bit or something! Anyways, I’m still not sold on David Garrard. Who is he even throwing the ball to besides Kellen Winslow and Michael Clayton? Running backs? He might fit my “Stopgap” category, but I’m not sure I can put him any higher than that until he proves he has some consistency.

        P.S. Cross your fingers that your recent comments aren’t deleted if Lunarpages decides to screw up the site again!!!

        In terms of your receivers, at this point I’d drop pretty much any of those receivers for Steve Smith and would consider dropping Kevin Walter for Mario Manningham. As for Greg Olsen and Julius Jones (is that who you mean?), I’d hang on to Jones at this point, but I’ve almost lost faith in Olsen as a top-tier tight end this season. While he might do alright, there are many other TE’s out there already putting up solid numbers.

      One quarterback I would think about putting in the Stopgap category this week is Seneca Wallace, who will be starting for the Seahawks this weekend with Matt Hasslebeck not expected to play.

      I have Earl Bennett (CHI) on my bench right now. I’m thinking about dropping him to pick up Johnny Knox since Knox has a higher fantasy point average and his lowest fantasy points for either week were higher than Bennett’s highest in a week.

      LIST OF SOME THAT ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WAIVER WIRE: Brandon Stokley, Nate Burleson, Chansi Stuckey, Kelley Washington, Jason Avant, Miles Austin, Antwaan Randle El, Kenny Britt, Julian Edelman, Davone Bess, Bobby Wade.

        It’s still a toss up as to who Jay Cutler will select as his favorite wide receiver in Chicago, but Johnny Knox is probably the favorite at this point. I’d rather have Knox on my team than Bennett at this point though, so I’d make the move. None of the other names on that waiver wire list really interest me a whole lot besides Nate Burleson (if Hasselbeck was healthy) and Davone Bess (only useful in PPR leagues.)

      I traded T.J for Percy Harvin what you think?

      • Brandon 10:11 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Interesting. I’m not sure I would have traded someone you drafted so early for Percy Harvin, who is still a big question mark for the season, but it could turn out to work for you. So far Housh hasn’t done that much through the first two games and now Hasselbeck is hurt, so it could get worse before it gets better.

      also should i drop LJ for Justin Forsett… also drop Earl Bennett for Glen Coffe?

      • Brandon 10:12 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        How about you drop Earl Bennett for Justin Forsett? I think Forsett has more value than Coffee and LJ has more value than Bennett.

      lookin for a RB/WR play: McFadden or Johnny Knox?

      • Brandon 1:37 pm on September 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with McFadden. I’m not liking the Bears passing game this week against the Seahawks in Seattle.
