    Week one injury updates 

    • Looks like Rams WR Danny Amendola could be out for at least 8-10 weeks, if not the year, after suffering a dislocated elbow. This hurts for those in PPR leagues who drafted him. This could end up benefiting rookie tight end Lance Kendricks, who should see even more looks, even after dropping a few passes on Sunday.
    • Amendola’s teammates Sam Bradford (finger) and Steven Jackson (quad) also suffered minor injuries and both hope to play in week 2, but keep an eye on them. Don’t worry about starting Bradford’s backup for any reason, but Cadillac Williams will top the waiver wire pick-ups this week for sure!
    • Chargers running back Mike Tolbert continued to prove that he’s the more valuable tailback, at least in terms of fantasy football, on the team as he scored three touchdowns. However, he also hurt his knee and while it seems minor at the moment, it could be the type of injury to sideline him a week, so make sure to follow the situation if he’s on your team.
    • Houston running back Derrick Ward left the game with an ankle injury and backup Ben Tate had a big game. With Arian Foster’s status still unknown for week two and Ward already losing his role as primary backup, Tate could be in line for another big game.
    • 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree will most likely be day-to-day for a while with a¬†reoccurring¬†foot injury.
    • Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman left Sunday’s game temporarily, but it seems it was just cramps and he came back in the game. Nothing to see here.
    • Jags tight end Marcedes Lewis had either cramps or a calf strain and you’ll want to monitor his status throughout the week before plugging him into your line-up (or don’t plug him in…easier solution!)
    • Bengals rookie quarterback Andy Dalton hurt his wrist and his status for week two is up in the air…but that shouldn’t matter, as no one should have him in their fantasy line-ups unless you’re in some crazy three QB league!
    • In case you’re someone who pays very little attention to the kicker position, other than to sub your guy out on a bye week, you might check that you don’t have Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding in your line-up. It seems he might be out for the year with a knee injury.

      My team has Cassel at qb, peyton manning on the bench. Think I should drop both/either for fitzpatrick and cam newton?

      • Brandon 2:01 pm on September 12, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Feel free to drop Manning at this point. He won’t help you this year. As far as who to pick up, I’d probably go the safer route with Fitzpatrick. He was decent last year as well and seems to be continuing that trend. Newton might be fun in the games he does well, but I predict a few terrible games in his near future. Maybe grab them all though if possible, since you’re pretty weak at the position.

    Is it just me or is this note by Yahoo! Sports about Michael Crabtree slightly confusing?

    yahoo confusing crabtree notes

    Does Crabtree like the deep ball or spread formations? Also, looking at his numbers while Troy Smith was at quarterback, would you really say that they “clicked”?

    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.

        • Chandler 12:46 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          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.

    • Helplease 8:53 pm on November 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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.

    • Allan 8:28 am on November 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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.

      • Brandon 8:21 pm on November 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although I don’t have any of the Green Bay players on my team, I agree with your thoughts completely! They did their best to make my predictions look less-than-spectacular

          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

          damn you donald driver for robbing greg of his deep passes

      • Brandon 7:48 am on November 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

    Hits & Misses – Week 9: Baseball is finally over! 

    Now that baseball is finally over, we can focus on the sport that should have a spotlight at this point in the year…football. Before we get to the players though, remember to enter in our contest to win a $50 NFL.com gift card simply by predicting the top fantasy quarterback of the week (my QB “hits” might help you out!) Also, if you’re feeling generous, head over to the Fantasy Football Librarian’s site and vote for FFGeekBlog.com in her first annual Readers’ Choice Poll.

      Okay, I need some help this week with my WRs and RB positions. I need 3 WRs and 2 RBs and a flex…I have Colston, Smith(nyg), Knox, Collie, and I just picked up Malcolm FLoyd in case he starts to shine…for RBs I have Forte, Portis, R. Williams, Buckhalter and I just picked up Moats, maybe for later…any ideas would be appreciated. If I don’t win this week it isn’t looking good for my team!!! Thanks a bunch

      • Brandon 2:37 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        At receiver, I’d go with Colston, Smith and Collie, then use Forte, Portis and Williams as your running backs and flex positions. Good luck!

    • sal 3:29 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey guys – I’m in 2nd place, but I am hurting at RB – only reliable option I have is DeAngelo Williams. Who should I start (in a non-PPR league) out of: Willie Parker, Ryan Moats, Maurice Morris (I also have Larry Johnson, but he isn’t an option this week or for the rest of the season, lol)

      • Brandon 3:34 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not a fan of your options there, but if I had to pick one I guess I would go with Ryan Moats and hope he gets a bunch of carries again this weekend. If Slaton fumbles early, you’re golden…otherwise, cross your fingers!

        • Amir 5:59 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          haha how many teams are in your league to have you be in 2nd place with those kind of RB options? — anyone on waivers like a Justin Fargas? that is a scary group to pick from

      • sal 10:37 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        i felt the temptation of trading LT and Hightower for DeAngelo and LJ – worst trade I’ve ever made – 12 team league – these guys are hawks on the waiver – that’s the best I can do. Couldn’t even get Jamaal Charles, lol

    • Kev 4:43 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey guys – I’m in a PPR league and I need help making a tough call: do I start Steve Smith (NYG) or Hightower?

      • Brandon 4:58 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I guess at this point it’s safest to go with Hightower, as he racks up receptions, receiving yards, gets a few rushing yards and is used for short yardage situations. He’s an anomaly, but he gets it done!

    • tyler davis 5:46 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Can i trust starting slaton this week?
      my other option is knowshon moreno

      • Amir 5:58 pm on November 5, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Slaton scares me you might want to wait until closer to game time — they should name a starter by Sunday

      • Brandon 9:46 am on November 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You’ll probably want to go with Slaton, but as Amir points out, the closer you can wait till game time to make this decision, the better.. Moreno is still splitting carries with Buckhalter AND they’re playing the Steelers this weekend. I think Slaton will get every chance in the world to play as long as he doesn’t fumble again, so if he keeps the ball safe, he should be in there.

      Brandon- you are offered Forte for Jacobs (with Portis + Turner as your other RBs in a non-PPR league) what do you do?

      Some discussion was had but it quickly went away from my context

      • Brandon 9:52 am on November 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I think I would do this trade at this point. I like Jacobs’ upside more than Forte down the stretch, as he’s been running better than Ahmad Bradshaw lately and I think the team is going to focus a bit more on the running game after their three game skid and inconsistency in the passing game.

      • Mal 10:23 am on November 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You would do the trade even though you like Jacobs’ upside more??? I am the one with Jacobs and am being offered Matt Forte? So you mean DON’T do the trade to clarify?? Cheers

        Although he wasn’t great last week, Sims-Walker’s match-up this weekend is too good to pass on. Start MSW. At tight end, go with Shockey, who has been on fire these past few weeks.

      Need help – beacause of the bye week, I have Bradshaw, Sproles, and Maroney to plug in. Also could claim Jaamal Charles off waivers. Who should I play to fill the RB2 slot? (Standard League)

      • Brandon 5:04 pm on November 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Ahmad Bradshaw against the Chargers, who haven’t been great at stopping the run. Bradshaw seems to have injury worries every week, but he still manages to play and should have a decent game this week. Good luck!

    • Jojo 3:34 pm on November 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Who do I start this week?? D. Williams, J. Stewart, P. Thomas, R. Mendenhall (need 2) and @ WR I need 1 more with R. Moss. Housh, Collie, or Mannigham? I know Housh has matchup but that guy is driving me nuts!! (Standard score)

      • Brandon 5:09 pm on November 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        DeAngelo Williams and Pierre Thomas, then I think you have to go with Houshmandzadeh against the Lions, as Manningham has injury/dropped passes/inconsistency issues. Collie is a close second, but I just like Housh’s matchup more.

    Hits & Misses – Week 8: Happy Halloween! 

    matt's bills pumpkinWith Halloween right around the corner, hopefully your fantasy teams are in for more treats than tricks! While there is no game on Sunday night due to the World Series, I’m excited for the treat we’ll all get on Monday night when we actually get to see a good football game (Falcons @ Saints), instead of what we were forced to witness last week. Make sure to set your rosters early on Saturday so that you don’t forget while you’re nursing that post-party hangover on Sunday!

    Anyways, here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week eight, 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!) We start it off with a few big name running backs that you may be concerned about… (More …)

        Hmmm…tricky one there. I’d go with Miles Austin, Nate Burleson, MJD, Kevin Smith and LeSean McCoy.

      Hey guys,

      Any thoughts Donald Lee vs Mercedes Lewis on hakeem nicks vs greg jennings this week?

      • Brandon 12:03 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Donald Lee will get more looks as JerMichael Finley is out (or at least banged up) this week. As for Nicks vs Jennings, I’d go with Jennings, as I think the Vikings/Packers game will include a ton of passing.

      Last week I wanted to know about Shiancoe or Davis and you got it wrong but i won’t hold it against you cuz i’m back again this week. Anyway, I’m look for a number 1 & 2 rb this week. For my number 1 i was going with Steven Jackson but Steve Slaton seems like a better choice because he scores more TDs and catches more passes. For my number 2 it is either
      Ricky Williams
      Kevin Smith
      Reggie Bush

      Also how do you feel about Tomlinson going against the Raiders.

      • Brandon 12:01 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Why can’t RB2 be Steven Jackson? I like the others in this order: LT, Kevin Smith, Ricky Williams, Reggie Bush.

      • Jacob 2:46 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        i would go with steve Slaton over S. Jackson … but ye y not do Jackson #2… if not id say Ricky WIlliams, then K. smith, then reggie bush

      • PD 1:28 pm on October 31, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Smith & Slaton

    • Jones 9:44 pm on October 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      McCoy over D Williams?

      • Brandon 11:56 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        LeSean McCoy over DeAngelo Williams? Umm…never.

      Love the site! I’ve got 2 WR and 2 RB spots, and 1 flex. I’m planning on starting Donald Driver, Mike Sims-Walker, Joseph Addai, Kevin Smith, and Miles Austin in the flex. Others on my roster are Andre Johnson, Derrick Mason, Correll Buckhalter, and Shonn Greene. Kevin Smith hasn’t been doing much lately, but I like his matchup against the Rams. I also don’t much like the matchups of the players I plan on benching. What do you think? Since my WR core is pretty deep, should I trade for an elite RB? Thanks in advance!

      • Brandon 11:59 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, that is a deep receiver corps you have there. Although I have Andre Johnson as a “miss” this week, I would think it’d be hard to bench him ever. If you can, try to watch the ESPN pregame show on Sunday to see Johnson’s status, because if he’s close to 100%, he’s probably a better play than Donald Driver. By all means though, think about trading some of those receivers before your league’s trade deadline (if you have one) or before they start getting hurt and lose value.

    • Stediberto 11:29 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’ve got MSW, Calvin Johnson, Steve Smith (CAR), Hakeem Nicks & A Collie. If Calvin plays, should I think about starting Collie over Smith?

      • Brandon 11:57 am on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I don’t feel confident starting Steve Smith at this point and Austin Collie has been one of Peyton’s favorite targets. Go with Collie…but I like Hakeem Nicks more than Collie if that is a decision you were making too.

    • chris 2:04 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      too many decisions this week., need help…

      • Brandon 3:52 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Collie and Mason, McCoy and Grant (although I’m not all that high on him this week.)

    • David 2:09 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Please pick 2:

      Andre Johnson
      T.J. Housh
      Devon Hester
      Austin Collie

      • Brandon 3:50 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Johnson (even though I’m not high on him this week, but it looks like he’s good to go) and Housh.

    • Finley 2:30 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Garrard or Schaub?

      Shockey or V Davis?

      • Brandon 3:46 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hard to bench Schaub at this point…even if his match-up is a lot worse than Garrard’s. For your tight end, go with Shockey.

    • Scotty 2:51 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon, I’m wondering if you would start Jerricho Cotchery vs. Miami or Hakeem Nicks vs. Philly. Jerricho, as you know, has been nursing a hamstring injury, but has apparently looked sharp in practice this week. Miami is starting 2 rookie corners. Hakeem is going against a much tougher secondary & he is the tertiary option for Eli. Weather is forecasted to be inclement in both Philly & New York. What do you think?

      • Brandon 3:49 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d still go with Hakeem Nicks. Mario Manningham is hurt and might not even play this weekend, meaning Nicks will start alongside Steve Smith and get tons of looks. Eli is much better than Mark Sanchez and can over come a little weather and a tougher defense.

      Hey there,
      I’ve got an offer from another team of Randy Moss and Brandon Jacobs for Ray Rice and Miles Austin. I’ve got Rice/Austin. What do you think? I also have Calvin Johnson, Housh and Frank Gore

      • Brandon 3:45 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d stick with Rice and Austin. Who knows, maybe Miles Austin ends up being a legit top-tier wide receiver. Ray Rice is a heck of a lot better than Jacobs at this point and I don’t think this trade is worth it for you.

    • DMANSTER 5:38 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Alright, RB situation need your advice. Need to start 2 in a PPR league: Hightower (vs. Car); Barber (vs. Sea); Jones (vs. Mia); Bell (vs. Atl)??

    • MR_FJG_SON 7:48 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Want your opinion on who too start, small head to headh league (6 teams) but based on total points to crown champ.:
      QB: A. rogers or T. Romo and at RB:Ronnie Brown V. Sidney Rice v. F. Gore..(A.D is my #1)..
      My gut is telling me Rogers but the Romo match-up vs. SEA is very tempting. Also I basically have 1 spot 7 am undecided on my othat 3 RBs & who would get me the most points.
      Any input would be awesome. Thanks again and new to the site.

        Sorry we didn’t get to reply to this, had a Halloween party and a road race that were keeping me occupied all night/morning before the games. Hopefully you ended up making the right decisions!

    • MR_FJG_SON 7:59 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Sorry about the misprint … I was thinking Sidney but meant Ray Rice (RB) Bal

    • Jone 9:22 pm on October 30, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hi ya!

      I’ve got an offer Beanie Wells, Mike Bell, and Greg Jennings for Pierre Thomas and TJ Housh. Should I take it?

      • Brandon 9:37 am on November 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Who else do you have for running backs? I’m not sure I like this trade as while you’re possibly upgrading a bit at receiver, you’re getting two guys you will never be comfortable starting at RB for one that is a decent starter.

    • BadBrainz 10:09 am on October 31, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hi,

      For the flex spot, should I start R. Williams, V. Jackson or D. Driver? I have LT and Ronnie Brown as my RBs. Also, Sims-Walker and Austin Miles as my 2 starting WR’s. If you can advise, I’d appreciate it. Keep up the great work

    • ffgeekblogROCKS 1:26 pm on October 31, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      hello! will calvin and andre play? if not, which of these guys should i start instead: Lance Moore, Donnie Avery, Eddie Royal? Flex: Shonn Greene, Bradshaw, or any of the previously listed receivers?
