    Marshawn Lynch pwns the Saints 

    I’m sure everyone saw this already, but in case you missed it, here is Marshawn Lynch in “Beast Mode”, dominating almost every Saints player on the field…

    • Hawgman 8:00 pm on January 9, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      If he had been doing stuff like this all year, he would have been worth drafting. I think this one play gets him drafted in the middle rounds next summer.

    Marshawn Lynch traded to Seahawks 

    OAKLAND, CA - MAY 16:  Marshawn Lynch, running back for the Buffalo Bills poses for a portrait on May 16, 2007 in Oakland, California.  (Photo by Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images)The Seattle Seahawks have worked out a trade with Buffalo for Marshawn Lynch. Per Adam Schefter, “For Marshawn Lynch, Seattle surrendered a 4th-round pick this year and conditional pick in 2012.” Seattle also cut backup running back Julius Jones to make room for Lynch.

    This is good news for Lynch, Fred Jackson, and C.J. Spiller, but is a bit of a hit to Justin Forsett’s fantasy value and Julius Jones has even less value (if he had any before.)

      So is Lynch worth picking up? (vs Torain, Bush….)

      • Brandon 4:25 pm on October 5, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I like Bush the most as a one-week play, then Torain the most long term. Lynch is my least favorite of the three, since Seattle forgot how to run the ball once Shaun Alexander left town 🙂

        • Sloth 10:50 pm on October 5, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Correction, Seattle forgot how to run the ball when Steve Hutchinson went to the Twin Cities. Alexander sucked in his final year in Seattle. Look at Adrian Peterson now.

            Its real bad news for Lynch who has no shot of being a productive back behind that O-line in Seattle. While it looks bad for Lynch, C.J. spiller’s stock just skyrocketed. Look for Spiller to breakout now that hes going to get more touches he is more likely to find a rhythm and help out his Harvard QB.

        Hey Guys,

        I have a pretty crappy WR tandem (Randy Moss/Fitzgerald/Colston, good on paper, but bad so far for me even though I’m 3-1), ad was offered a trade of:

        me giving colston and vernon davis
        me getting hakeem nicks

        i have dustin keller too so i can easily start him over davis (did last week anyway)

        • Sloth 10:52 pm on October 5, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Nicks is better than Colston but the real target in this trade is Vernon. he has more value than just nicks. you should counter offer for a better receiver.

          • Nostradamus 3:25 am on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            Terrible Trade! dont give up Vernon and Colston for Nicks. Nicks is better than Colston but Brees is better than Eli Manning and the Giants passing game is awful, they’ve become a run heavy team.
            The Saints throw the ball far more than the Giants. This trade is already not that even with Colston for Nicks, but when you throw Vernon Davis in the mix someone is taking trying to take advatage of you. Davis will continue to increase his productivity as he and Alex Smith have found good chemistry. Hes a top 10 TE.

        • Brandon 2:51 pm on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Like Slot says, Nicks is an upgrade over Colston, but not worth it at the expense of Vernon Davis. Just because you have depth at a position doesn’t mean you should give it away for free! 🙂

          Look for a better receiver to get for the two.

      Rumor of Patriots trading Moss to Vikings – sounds like a win for everone

      • Brandon 9:19 pm on October 5, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Shhhhhhh…just pick up Brandon Tate if he’s available in your league and don’t tell anyone 🙂

        By the way, as a Patriots fan, strangely I’m not even against this idea…

        • TJ 12:38 am on October 7, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Would you rate Tate above Brandon Lloyd for a depth/bench spot? Lloyd seems pretty consistent week to week right now, Tate would be a totally speculative hold, but either would be behind White, Collie, Floyd & Clayton right now (start 2)

          • Brandon 12:12 pm on October 7, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            Stick with Lloyd. Only one to consider would probably be Mark Clayton, but make sure Tate starts doing well first.

      I’m in a 30 move max league that starts 1QB, 2RBs, 2WR, 1TE, and a WR/TE flex spot, plus 6 IDP slots, and kicker, we get fractional points for rushing attempts, completions, PPR, pts for return yards, and IDP points
      Roster is as follows:
      QB-Schaub, E Manning
      RB-Mendenhall, Rice, Moreno, Lynch, Fred Jackson, McGahee- added Lynch 2 wks ago and dropped Forsett after the trade
      WR-Boldin, Maclin, Walter, Jacoby Jones, Lance Moore
      TE-Witten, Olsen
      IDP- Freeney, Chung, Antrel Rolle, Posluszny, Ellis Hobbs, DeAngelo Hall
      first, how does my roster look? I’m thinking of putting some RBs up for trade to bolster my subpar WR’s, i was just offered Braylon Edwards for Moreno…..he lost Portis, and only other RBs are Ronnie Brown and Benson, Forsett is the best RB in FA pool, he also has Brees, Vick, Collie, Desean Jackson, Crabtree, Santana Moss, Zach Miller, Vernon Davis, what you think? The return of Santonio Holmes kills Edwards value in my opinion, or should I counter for someone else? Also, I like Tony Moeaki’s upcoming schedule, should I consider him over Olsen or Witten? Any help would be sweet, thx!

      • Brandon 3:01 pm on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        You could wait a week and see how Edwards does with Holmes back in the line-up if you’re not in a rush. Either way, I don’t really see that trade helping out your team all that much. I’d look for a better receiver, possibly packaging Kevin Walter and Moreno or something.

      10 team league

    • andy 11:09 am on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I picked up BenJarvus off the wire last week. Looking back, I should have picked up Hillis… too late now. But Ryan Torain and Lynch are both available on the wire right now. Would it be worth picking either of them up and dropping BenJarvus or back? I’ve got Moreno, and Ronnie Brown as well.

      Also, I’ve got Donald Driver and Hines Ward. Both Decent player who will put up good points occasionally. But with brandon tate stepping up, and davone bess being more of a target(both being on the waiver wire), would they be worth a pickup in exchange for either of Driver or Ward?

      One last question: I’ve got Orton and Flacco. Bradford is only getting better. I know it’s a risk but, should I pick up Bradford off the wire in exchange for flacco? He’s playing DET this week, which could mean tasty numbers for Bradford.
      Thanks for your advice!

      • andy 11:19 am on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Also, throw Michael Bush into that first question. He’s on the wire as well.

      • Brandon 2:55 pm on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I actually vote that you make zero moves 🙂

        The Patriots could work in the run game more with Randy Moss gone, so BJGE could be in for an increase in carries. If you need a running back for one week, I guess you could go with Michael Bush, but he’ll probably move back to a reserve role when Darren McFadden returns. At receiver, Driver should be solid and Hines Ward will put up much better numbers with Roethlisberger returning this week. At quarterback, I like Orton and Flacco more than Bradford this season. Even if Bradford has a good match-up this week, he’ll go through some growing pains over the course of the year and won’t end up being as valuable as the other two.

      • Brandon 3:05 pm on October 6, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Update: I already changed my mind. Feel free to pick up Ryan Torain and drop BJGE. Apparently Clinton Portis is out for 4-6 weeks with a “separation in his groin”?

      I need some IDP help, I have limited moves in my league, 30 to be exact, i am at 12 because of a variety of injuries to my drafted team, so i can’t go picking up the latest flash in the pan IDP stud each week, i need some advice on some reliable options going forward for the rest of the season, guys like Posluszny who i have. any thoughts?

    The Wire – Week 14: Who's Starting Vince Young in the Playoffs? 

    Here are our waiver wire candidates for week fourteen. 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. This week we start off with a few quarterbacks who’s play has improved dramatically over the next few weeks. Early in the season, did you ever imagine starting Alex Smith or Vince Young (or Bruce Gradkowski?) in the playoffs? Me neither.

    (More …)

    • e-roc 9:39 am on December 8, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      *whew* Limped into the playoffs with 3 straight L’s but still managed to secure a Bye week.

      My QB situation has been a crap shoot because I own McNabb, VY, and Alex Smith. Who do I start this week? Purely based on match-ups, I want to start VY…

      • Brandon 3:37 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hard to sit McNabb against a Giants defense that just got lit up by Tony Romo. Plus, if you actually look at the last few games the Rams of played, they haven’t been all that bad against the pass (shut down Hasselbeck and Cutler.) Stick with McNabb.

        • e-roc 3:46 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’ll stick with McNabb… My team has under-performed for 3 straight weeks. Not looking good…

      Hey Guys – First off, thanks for helping me win my division, you guys are the best.

      Wanted to know your thoughts on my playoff roster:
      – At RB I have SJax, Wells, Charles, F Jackson, & Forsett. Thinking about swapping someone for Harrison, as a posible week 15 option should something happen (like SJax’s back finally caving in). Maybe FredJack, or Forsett if it looks like they’ll be sticking to Jones….?
      – At WR, Welker, Austin, Ocho, SimsWalker, Smith(NYG). Meacham is available. Worth swapping one for him – will Ocho shine again?
      – D/ST – GB & CIN, who do you like going forward? (can also grab DEN, CAR, ARI)
      And for the rest:
      – TE – Witten & Shiancoe
      – K is always the flavor of the week, and Q is Brees.

      Big question about whether I’m safer carrying 2 QBs in case Brees gets hurt (would grab Smith), but I’d have to drop something (probably the extra D/ST, hard to part with the others) Are there 2 D’s worth carrying, or do you think I can safely stick with one (probably GB this week, at least)


      I’m thinking

        • e-roc 8:12 am on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          You’re pretty stacked at WR.. They’re all #1’s on their respective teams. At this point, the only guy I would consider swapping is Steve Smith (NYG) for Meachem since he plays for an offensive juggernaut.

        • Brandon 3:45 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Not sure Garcon is worth the add with the Colts about to clinch home field advantage through the playoffs and Peyton Manning seeing a drop in playing time.

      • Brandon 3:52 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        It might not be a huge upgrade, but feel free to drop Forsett for Harrison. At least you’re assured he’ll get some carries. At wide receiver, I agree with E-Roc on Steve Smith. He hasn’t found the endzone a whole lot lately and actually has some pretty bad match-ups down the stretch (PHI, WAS, CAR.) I like Witten at tight end and love the Packers defense this week against Jay “Interception Machine” Cutler.

      • Brandon 3:41 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although there are some hip injury worries, Kurt Warner should be good to go on Monday and with the weapons he has at receiver, you have to start him over Alex Smith. This will all change if you find out that Warner is looking less likely to play later in the week, but for now plan on starting the old man.

      2 RB 2 WR 1 Flex: MJD, McGahee, Addai, Rock Cartwright; Randy Moss, Steve Smith (NYG), Sid Rice, Britt and Maclin (will go if I get Meachem off waivers).

      Although Miami is great against the run, MJD can still receive some passes, he should remain #1… I think the Colts will start resting starters, and Denver is quite tough for Addai. Cartwright will get a million touches and might score 0 TDs… and McGahee could score 3 in 3 carries! Oh boy…

      For WRs I am only positive about Moss… Steve Smith *might* be ok against Brown and Samuel… it seems Young can throw the ball, so Britt has potential to wreck the Rams. I don’t like Rice against the Bengals and Maclin was dissapointing.

      PD: Hoping to pick up Heap and Ravens to replace Olsen and Vikings… Baltimore’s schedule is pretty soft for the rest of the season.

      • Brandon 3:55 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Jones-Drew and Cartwright (and hope he gets lucky against a bad Oakland run defense.) At receiver go with Moss, Britt (worth a gamble) and either Meachem or Smith, depending on if you got Meachem.

    • Dennis 4:23 pm on December 9, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      3 WR 2 RB 2 Flex: Sims Walker, Roddy White, T.O., Smith(NYG), Smith(Car), Crabtree, Chambers, Mike Wallace, Pierre Thomas, Ganther (starting against OAK), and Hightower.

      I was thinking Wallace might have a good game if Ward doesn’t play. KC doesn’t have a good pass defense so TO might have a break game.

      I’m pretty sure with Thomas and Ganther but Hightower is a good goal line back.
      Please help me out.

        I’m starting Mike Wallace tonight I think, especially if Hines Ward isn’t playing. If ward starts, you might consider swapping him for Steve Smith (NYG) though.

      Im having a tough time deciding who to start this week at WR and QB…

      At QB I have Romo and Smith, and I was dead set on Romo until I read this article…

      At WR, ( in a league where we can start 5) I have
      Sims-Walker (vs MIA)
      Desean Jackson (vs NYG)
      Andre Johnson (vs. Sea)
      Santonio Holmes (vs. CLE)
      Kenny Britt( vs.STL)
      Pierre Garcon( vs. DEN)

      Britt has been lighting people up lately and so has Garcon. I’m afraid to bench Holmes because of Cleveland’s horrible defense. I need some major help her guys.


      • Brandon 4:40 pm on December 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, didn’t mean to make you second guess yourself, but you’re good to go with Romo anyways. He’s coming off two good performances in a row and plays a Chargers defense that just got beat up by the Browns of all teams.

        At wide receiver, you might bench Kenny Britt, even if he has been playing well lately with Vince Young. If he doesn’t catch touchdowns in two of the last three games, he finishes with pretty bad numbers actually, so he’s a gamble.

      Greetings!  I’m having a tough time week, finally moved into 4th in our standings, and working to protect that spot and make a team good enough to give some of our overpowered teams a run for their money come weeks 15-17 and I could use some assistance.  Here’s my lineup.

      QB: Peyton Manning
      WR: Larry Fitzgerald
      WR: Marques Colston
      RB: Jamaal Charles
      RB: Cedric Benson
      TE: Heath Miller
      W/T: Mike Sims-Walker
      W/R: Jason Avant
      W/R: Kenny Britt

      On the bench:
      QB: Mark Sanchez
      RB: Mike Bell
      RB: Brandon Jacobs

      Last week I finally benched Jacobs having moved in Britt into my lineup instead, figuring it was finally time, and it really came back to bite me.  I’ve got one empty spot on my roster and would be more than willing to make some moves should there be some options deemed better.  There are few availabilities at the QB position (Gradkowski, Boller, Moore being really the only real choices..and not necessarily good ones.)  TE Miller’s stock has certainly fallen in the last few weeks, and I’m wondering if Scaife, Finley or Carlson might not be better choices here? (All are available.)  Also, I’m not sure about WRs in the next few weeks, since Bess, Breaston, Bryant and Devin Thomas are all available.

      Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions?

      • Brandon 4:51 pm on December 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m a little confused about the empty QB spot you mention. I’m assuming you obviously want to pick up a quarterback and plug him in there. Is Chad Henne or Ryan Fitzpatrick available? I like them more than the guys you mention. If not, then I guess I’d go with Bruce Gradkowski (even though he’s one of my “misses” this week) and hope he continues where he left off last week.

        With DeSean Jackson most likely playing, I’d plug in Brandon Jacobs for Jason Avant as well.

        Finally, stick with Heath Miller, who is my tight end “hit” this week.

        • Tony 6:34 pm on December 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sorry for not clarifying that empty spot. I had Sanchez in there previously, and he’s hurt this week. Henne and Fitzpatrick are both already taken as well. 2 QBs and 12 people make for slim QB pickings…

          Starters Available at QB:

        • Brandon 6:07 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Stick with Gradkowski. Moore is an enticing option considering how bad the Patriots defense has been lately, but they’re playing at home and should be a lot better against the Panthers (considering they only have to cover one receiver!)

        Go with Mason as your WR2 and LT in the flex spot.

        In terms of picking up a backup quarterback, there really isn’t a whole lot of season left and you won’t be benching Rodgers unless he gets hurt (knock on wood.) If you’re going to drop anyone, I guess you could drop Gostkowski, since you probably don’t need him anymore with Hartley playing now.

    Tonight's Game: New York Jets @ Toronto Bills 

    Don’t even get me started on the Toronto thing. NFL.com’s Nick Bakay sums up the situation pretty succinctly:

    If you have any illusions that this counts as a home game, peep the Jets tilt this Thursday on NFL Network, and count the Bills jerseys in the stands. Last year against Miami, it took CBS three quarters to find one, but there were thousands of Dolphins threads.

    So just in case your start/sit decision on a Buffalo player hinges on the fact that this is a “home” game – think again.

    Anyway, since many folks have to make roster decisions today, let’s do a quick start-or-sit for tonight’s players: (More …)

      Thursday night football this year has been terrible. Including Thanksgiving, the following teams have played: San Francisco, Chicago, Carolina, Miami, Oakland, Dallas, Detroit, Green Bay, Denver, New York Giants, and now the Jets and Bills. Next week is Pittsburgh and Cleveland…ugh. It’s not until week 15 that we get a match-up that is half-way interesting (Indy vs Jacksonville) and even then, the Colts will probably be resting Peyton Manning. Awesome!

      • ken 3:40 am on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think the Miami – Carolina game was good considering the two teams story lines going in. And for AFC East fans tonights game was an important one.

        Hasn’t been MNF caliber though.

        If Manning rests, it might make the Indy Jag game more interesting lol. The Jags have been awfully inconsistent this season. If Mannings in, it could be a pretty lopsided and boring game.
