    Week 2 FAIL: Possibly your first round draft pick 

    Continuing with last week’s trend, here are a few players who didn’t quite live up to their expectations in week two. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s too early to make any rash decisions regarding most of these guys, but still, they were terrible. Feel free to add to the discussion with your own…maybe one that you blame your week’s loss on?

      That’s an awesome MJD picture. I think MJD, Ray Rice, and Chris Johnson are all good buy lows. If any of them can be had for Jahvid Best or LeSean McCoy, I’d make that deal.

      • tim 6:20 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I actually made that deal, Best/Bush for Rice, which turned out doubly good since I would have lost Bush for half the season due to injury anyways.

        Best is great, but I think some lean games are ahead and defenses start seriously game-planning for him.

      Hi, my name is DeAngelo Williams, and I am a week 2 FAIL.

      • Brandon 4:44 pm on September 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I couldn’t bring myself to put DeAngelo Williams on the list. He’s at least rushed for over 50 yards each week so far…not great, but not a real FAIL. I have noticed a large amount of inconsistent and disappointing players this season though. Is it just me that’s seeing this trend or is it universal?

    • Wolf 9:19 pm on September 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Ward, Naanee, and MJD… I had all 3 starting. Wow I got pummeled this week (after being highest points week 1, I got Lowest points). I’m at a loss as to what decisions to make now.

      My Team as of week 2:
      QB – Peyton Manning
      WR – Wes Welker
      WR – Hines Ward (No Dixon.. Batch didn’t throw the ball)
      WR – Legedu Naanee (Terrible numbers week 2)
      RB – Maurice Jones-Drew (Terrible numbers week 2)
      TE – Antonio Gates
      W/T – Austin Collie
      W/R – Cedric Benson (Consistent, but low)

      BN – Mike Williams (Shown nothing yet)
      BN – Jacoby Jones (Put up good numbers in week 2)
      BN – Bernard Berrian (Shown nothing yet)
      BN – Reggie Bush (Broke his leg)
      BN – Jay Cutler
      BN – Marcedes Lewis

      I feel like I shouldn’t make any rash moves and pick up riskier free agents yet, but I am not feeling great about the current line-up. I’ll start Jacoby Jones in week 3 if I keep the same lineup and hope that Ward gets on the same page as whomever starts QB this week. I’m not sure if holding Reggie Bush until he is better is a good idea.

      Snelling, Hightower, Tolbert, Hillis, Portis – All Free agents right now that could replace Bush. WRs on the waiver are non-existent.. 4th or 5th WR play at best. I’ll hold tight on what I have and hope some of them start showing up.

      Thoughts?

      • Mal 1:22 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Well, when i look at your team I think, never rest Peyton or Gates regardless of secondary/pass D. Yes they have byes and Lewis and especially Cutler are decent but really… You really are after a good breakout RB or WR with your spots.

        Benson and MJD are boss RBs, they will come good. Berrian, I have no faith in- there is an article on CBS or Yahoo referring to him as an absolute dud. Use Bush and Lewis and maybe even Berrian to source waiver potentials (hopefully you can find the Sims-Walker of last year). You’re playing the waiting game with Hines Ward for Big Ben(like me).

        I don’t follow MJDs health too closely, but perhaps handcuff whats-his-face. Portis hasn’t looked too bad, and Tolbert looked good if Matthews goes down. Snelling is no surprise for me- he did this late last year when burner and norwood went down.

        • Wolf 9:51 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Yah. Peyton, Gates, and Welker are the guys that are holding me together currently! It is really the WRs that are up and down. I’m going to use Bush and most likely Berrian to find some new guys for the bench… But I have to time it right!

      • Brandon 9:31 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d grab Hightower for Reggie Bush. He’s healthy and seems to be getting a lot of action in the Cardinals offense. Strange league set up there with so many WR’s vs RB’s. Wondering how there can’t be a better option on free agency than Bernard Berrian, but maybe stick with him and see if anything happens!

        • Wolf 9:56 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Hightower does sound like a good choice. For the moment, I have seen you guys talking about Demaryius Thomas. I might pick him up too. What do you think?

          With this setup, I actually only ‘need’ one RB at worst case – so if either MJD or Benson are on bye, I can toss in a decent WR for the points. I think the reason we have no WRs left on the waiver is because of our league setup – most of our players are starting 4 WRs (with the possibility of 5) and have at least 3 on their bench. That is ~60 WRs scooped up from the draft.

        • Brandon 10:16 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Oh, if Demaryius Thomas is available definitely pick him up over Bernard Berrian. He’s only a rookie with one game under his belt, but he’s already proven to be a lot more reliable than Berrian!

      • Mike 10:54 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I have Berrian as well as Crabtree who have done nothing but I was unable to get Demaryius Thomas.
        T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Robert Meachem, Josh Cribbs, or Michael Jenkins (hoping he’ll come back strong) are all available as my top choices in my opinion. Any suggestions? My league allows 5 WR, 3 can start along with 1 RB/WR. I currently have Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson, and Santonio Holmes as my other receivers. Should I hold on to Berrian and Crabtree in hopes they’ll make something happen or trade one or both?

        • Brandon 11:49 am on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I’d hang on to Crabtree, as I think he’ll improve. Berrian could be a lost cause though. Although Meachem hasn’t done a whole lot up to this point, I like him more than Berrian and might be worth a pick up.

      Alright, so I’ve got a small little question-

      I’ve got Brett Favre, and Joe Flacco. Neither of them have done that well in the last two weeks. I have a hard time getting rid of Favre, because I know he’s still got the juice in him somewhere. He just needs to find it. So I guess the question is, should I give up Flacco for one of the free agent QBs in my league? Got a couple of decent choices here:

      Josh Freeman
      Kyle Orton
      Matt Hasselbeck
      David Garrard
      Sam Bradford

      • Mal 1:24 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I think they’re both still better. I hate to be the one to say this if it doesn’t work out but have you considered holding onto them BOTH for another week. Favre has the lions this week.

      • Brandon 9:42 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I actually like Kyle Orton more than Brett Favre at this point. However, give the Flacco/Favre combo one more week just in case if you think Orton will still be there next week.

      • Brandon 9:32 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I doubt he’ll get traded, since I assume the Giants like having two decent running backs in case one gets hurt. He’s basically a hand-cuff for Ahmad Bradshaw at this point though.

    • Joe 12:31 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I have Carson Palmer as my starter with Roethlisberger on my bench. Kyle Orton is available, should I give up Palmer for Orton?

      • Brandon 1:15 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t. I think Palmer and Orton end the season with similar numbers, but I like the Bengals offense as a whole a bit more at this point. I actually think all three of those quarterbacks will end up with similar numbers from week-to-week once Big Ben returns.

      Hey would you trade Justin Forsett and Steve Smith (Giants) for Shonn Greene and Santonio Holmes .. I have Greene and Holmes

      • Brandon 1:53 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t do this trade if I were you. I think you’re on the better end of the deal in both positions with Greene and Holmes (once he returns.)

        • s 2 da a L 1:28 pm on September 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          So you feel Greene is gonna be the top 20 RB he was projected to be?

        • Brandon 3:05 pm on September 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I think he’ll definitely improve and should still end up being a top 20 RB. I think the whole Jets offense is still trying to figure out their identity, but soon they’ll be back to trying to maintain a 3 or 7 point lead by grinding it out on the ground.

      You’re not from either area, are you? Otherwise you’d know the REAL storyline is the local boy – Tim Tebow – making his homecoming to the team many think should have drafted him.

    Thursday Night Football: IND @ JAX 

    Although everyone probably already knows (but just in case!), the Colts head to Jacksonville to play the Jaguars on Thursday Night Football tonight. For at least this game it seems that Indianapolis doesn’t plan to do sit any of their stars (unless the score gets lop-sided early I assume.) This means it’s pretty safe to keep Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark in your line-ups as usual. I’m not as confident with Joseph Addai though, as he’s had injury troubles in the past and the team may be more apt to get him to the bench early to ensure he’s healthy down the stretch.

    For the Jaguars, Maurice Jones-Drew could have a tough go of it, but you can’t really bench him unless you have an running back corps and can replace him. Mike Sims-Walker has a pretty decent match-up with the Colts coming off a game in which they allowed a 21 reception, 200 yard, two touchdown performance to his old UCF teammate, Brandon Marshall. No one else on the roster is really up for consideration, so I’ll leave it at that. Good luck!

     
    • Squish 7:07 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Is MSW really worth starting? I mean in the games he’s played injured he’s hasn’t done anything. He’s definitely still hurting but I almost have to play him in one PPR league.

      I have MSW, Nicks, Breaston, Meachem, Collie and Chambers to choose from. ATM I have Meachem starting only because it’s clear that MSW is still limited and playing a good set of corners. Thoughts?

      • Brandon 7:38 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        All depends on your other options I guess. Who are you considering starting instead? Nicks, Meachem and Breaston or something? I think I would start him with Meachem and Nicks. Fitzgerald is saying that he wants to play and Breaston didn’t do anything last week.

        • Squish 7:51 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Well it’s only a 2WR league and I have Welker so he’s definitely starting. I was just trying to figure out my WR2 slot. I think I’m going to go with Meachem and hope for the best. I can’t start MSW with confidence after his last two weeks.

          Meachem gets some return yards from time to time which won’t make too big a difference in this league but it at least makes him worth the nod. Hopefully he’ll come through on Saturday.

      • Brandon 8:22 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Sims-Walker got the job done last night, especially in a PPR league where his six catches probably helped a bit. I don’t usually brag, but I love it when I out-predict ESPN’s Matthew Berry. Here too.

        • Brandon 11:37 am on December 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Did you end up playing Meachem? If not, I’d probably bench Randy Moss and start Sidney Rice. Moss has been horrendous lately and the Bills have a tough pass defense.

    Hits & Misses – Week 6: Brady Back in Business 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week six, 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!) Normally I would leave off the most obvious picks, such as Tom Brady against the Titans. However, the Patriots passing game hasn’t lived up to it’s billing so far this year and there are managers who are probably considering benching this week, so I’ve included him as a reminder to get him in your line-ups! Anyways, here we go with the hits and misses for the week… (More …)

     
    • Ken 3:11 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I suck at RB this year. My star RB is Jamal Lewis lol, who happens to make your miss list this week.

      I have Leon Washington, Jamal Lewis, Mike Bell and Sammy Morris. Any suggestions?

      I also have Johnny Knox in as a flex right now, but picked up Jeremy Maclin after his big week last sunday. Knox as a real starter is more reliable, but he’s up against atlanta, while maclin is up against oakland after his big week. You think its worth the risk going for Maclin over Knox here?

      Thanks guys

      • Brandon 3:47 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah I’m not lovin’ that running back crew you have there, but if you need to start two this week, go with Leon Washington and Jamal Lewis (as he’ll at least get the bulk of the team’s carries.)

        • Squish 11:18 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I actually like Morris better than Washington. He’ll get a majority of the touches in NE while Taylor is out

    • Amir 3:16 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      My league is 1 rb 2 flex and 2 WR (10 teams)
      I have
      RB: Gore, Ray Rice, K Smith, Hightower, Donald Brown
      and my WRs are kind of weak: MSW, Santana Moss, Antonio Bryant, Nate Washington and Donnie Avery,

      I just traded K Smith for Housh — One of the players in my league really thinks I got screwed over here but I really have an abundance of RBs and I would think i can start Housh most weeks going forward (Kind of a Seattle fan and I’m believing now that Hass is back) — What do you think about this trade?

      • Brandon 3:43 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I see no issue with this trade. With only one mandatory RB spot, having a lot of depth at the position isn’t all that important (and can sometimes be aggravating when you can’t decide who to play!) Now you can start Sims-Walker, Moss, and Housh regularly, along with Gore and Rice.

        • amir 4:05 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          eh im not a huge moss fan — hopefully antonio bryant turns into something decent or maybe even start hightower with good matchups — but i definitely think this gives me more flexibility as opposed to be bound by teh 1 mandatory RB

        • Brandon 4:35 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, Santana Moss is very frustrating to own…he either goes nuts or does nothing. As long as you have other decent options (Housh and Sims-Walker) to hold down the WR position in his off days though, you should be all set.

        Keep Rivers in there, as he’s proven that he can be effective against good defenses already this year a couple times. As for your RB/WR’s, go with Santana Moss, Mike Sims-Walker and Devin Hester (I have a good feeling about him this week as he appears to be 100% healthy.)

        • Brandon 7:49 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I like the two wide receivers, as Bell is A) returning from injury, B) playing a great defense in the Giants, and C) playing second fiddle to Pierre Thomas.

      IMO, MJD is a bust vs. all the preseason fantasy hype, especially for a guy who’s flying solo on his team.

      Q1: Would you start Donnie Avery over Steve Smith (NYG) this week? I will be starting Steve Smith (CAR) and TJ Whosyomama.

      Q2: Do I start Thomas Jones (NYJ) or Kevin Smith (DET)?

      • Brandon 10:26 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey E-Roc, I’d agree with you that MJD is somewhat of a bust, but a lot of running backs are disappointing so far this year and the Yahoo! guys seem to pick him as the top RB of the week on a consistent basis, so they must believe in him still.

        For your receivers, stick with both Steve Smith’s. Avery needs a few more solid games to prove that he can be consistent enough to start over someone like Smith.

        At running back, I like Thomas Jones against the Bills, who are giving up the third most fantasy points to the running back position this year.

    • Gavin 11:05 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      • Brandon 10:20 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        For running back go with Slaton, as the Titans should stop Morris pretty good. As for your quarterback question though, you’re in a pretty nice position there as both guys have excellent match-ups. It’s almost a coin flip decision, but I’m leaning towards McNabb against a Raiders defense that was lit up by Eli Manning and the G-Men last weekend.

      In a 12 team PPR with flex…..would you trade Rice and Royal for RMoss and LJohnson?

      I have depth at running back: Gore, Thomas/Bell, Rice, Moreno, Bradshaw and I’m looking to upgrade at WR (i have Andre Johnson, Burleson, Royal, Bennett)

      The thought of Moss and Johnson as my two WRs is almost interesting enough to take on Larry’s baggage. What do you think…go for it, or hold out for something better?

      • Brandon 10:15 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like that trade given the depth at running back. Would they be willing to take Moreno instead of Rice? Probably not, but just curious. I think Moss has a big second half of the season ahead of him and would be a great addition to your team.

        • T-Rex 12:06 pm on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks Brandon – glad to see we were thinking along the same lines. In the end I got Randy Moss and Beanie Wells for Knowshon and Eddie Royal.

          I decided on Beanie’s 2nd half upside over LJ’s week in/week out reality….think I still got the better end here?

        • Brandon 7:51 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I like that trade. They’ve said they will try to get Wells more involved in passing downs (which is almost every down for the Cardinals), so he should improve as the season moves on.

        I’d go for Jeremy Maclin. It looks like he’s being heavily considered to take over Kevin Curtis as the #2 receiver in Philly, while Garcon is rotating with Austin Collie and whose role is not ensured once Anthony Gonzalez returns.

      Basically I can have 1 TE, 2 WR, 2 RB and then a flex position.

      I’m well into my BYEs and do not have a clue what to do! Please help!

      I also have the opportunity to pick up Steve Breaston or Kevin Walter too…

      Any help would be greatly appreciated….

        I’d actually recommend picking up both Breaston and Walter in exchange for Bennett and Moore.

        If you DO make those two moves, then start T.O. and both receivers, plus Peterson and Bush. If you don’t make the moves before the games today though, start Peterson, Bush, Buckhalter, T.O. and Bennett.

        For your tight end, start Kellen Winslow. Good luck!

          Thanks Brandon!

          I’m going to make your recommendations! Good luck in your own league! 🙂

      I have Drew Brees and Eli Manning, both are going to have tough games today and not sure who to start – what do you all think?

        Go with Drew Brees at home, while Eli still has that hurt foot to deal with against a tough Saints defense.

    A few quick thoughts on yesterday's games from a fantasy perspective… Maybe… 

    A few quick thoughts on yesterday’s games from a fantasy perspective…

    • Maybe the real QB controversy in Philly is Kolb-McNabb… but yeah, not really. Reid’s going to start McNabb as soon as he’s healthy, and the good news for his fantasy owners is the emergence of DeSean Jackson as a truly elite receiver. McNabb hasn’t had a target of this caliber since T.O. left town.
    • I’m not usually one to say “I told you so,” but I’m feeling pretty good about my MJD pick.
    • Joe Flacco looked good again, but I’ll wait to declare him an every-week fantasy starter until I see how he does in New England this Sunday.
    • Matt Schaub and Co. are rounding into shape pretty nicely, wouldn’t you say? Slaton didn’t exactly have a breakout game fantasy-wise, but his owners should be relieved to see him look effective when he touched the ball (and to see his vulture Chris Brown fumble in the red zone). If you own him, hold onto him; if you don’t, see if his owner might be willing to trade him.

      I was quite glad to see MJD go off as well. I played Ryan Grant instead of Slaton though, which didn’t turn out the best! Thanks to MJD and Peyton.. I am well in the lead

        Yeah, pretty sure the MJD/Peyton combo is a winner no matter what this week.

      Good thing too because I was 0-2 (went up against the 2 strongest teams in the league… I lost both games with the 2nd highest score in the league!)
