    Who's drafting a 49 year old Herschel W… 

    Who’s drafting a 49 year old Herschel Walker for their fantasy team next year? The former NFL running back and current MMA fighter is thinking of making a comeback and wants to play for the Vikings or Falcons. One thing he has going for him is that he can probably do more sit-ups and push-ups than anyone currently in the league!

    Brett Favre upgraded to Questionable for tonight's game 

    Attention all you Joe Webb-ers out there…make sure to keep a close eye on the Minnesota quarterback situation as we get closer to game time. Apparently the Vikings have upgraded Brett Favre from OUT to QUESTIONABLE. While I find it “questionable” that they would be allowed to do such a thing, apparently they gave the Bears the heads up and they were alright with the idea that Favre might play. I’m hearing that Favre will take some time to throw between 2-3 hours before game-time to see if he can play or not, which would mean Joe Webb takes the reins.

    This is obviously horrible news for those who were banking on Joe Webb as a WR. Hopefully your league allows you to pick up a free agent before game-time if necessary, someone like Devin Hester maybe. Anyways, I’ll try to keep everyone updated on the situation, but just a heads up!

        Score! I won the FFGeekBlog.com Bowl against Matt and now get to play my old college roommate in the championship.

          Score! Woke up this morning and found out I’m in another semi matchup. I went against Mendenhall and I saw the video of the phantom 1st down and thought it should have been corrected, but by Thursday morning – it hadn’t been corrected. But sometime on Thursday, they did mention that Mendenhall would only get 99 yards. In my league, you get a 5 FP (fantasy points) boost if a running back goes over 100 yards rushing … I had originally lost by 3 points … woke up this morning and I won by 2, w00t!

    Start Vikings QB Joe Webb as your WR3? 

    At the moment, it appears that rookie quarterback Joe Webb will start for the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. With Brett Favre and Tavaris Jackson sidelined, Webb is next in line to take the reins against a tough Chicago defense, even though the team recently signed Patrick Ramsey. The interesting thing about Webb is that Yahoo lists him as both a QB and WR, meaning you could start a starting quarterback as a wide receiver if you’re so inclined. I’m debating whether to start him in my leagues right now and am waiting to hear more about the situation before deciding for sure, but the intrigue was enough that I picked him up in my leagues. You might think about doing the same in yours!

    Disclaimer: I take no responsibility if he goes out and gets destroyed by Chicago and puts up negative points or something…but I take all the credit if he throws for 200 yards, throws for a score and runs for another!

      Wow. What a thought. I’m nervous playing with such fire and gimmicks during the playoffs, but it sounds like so much fun!

      Talk about high risk/high reward…
      If it weren’t “one-n-done” time, I would seriously consider it!

        Thant and I will be starting the Chicago D/ST id Webb starts at QB. Rookie QB taking his first snaps outside in Minnesota in December on Monday Night Football?!? The Bears will have drool frozen to their faces before the warm-ups are done!!

      I might not end up “playing with fire”, but at least I’ll have the fire on my bench so no one else can play with it 🙂

        I may be using that type of strategery this weekend too. My opponent has Rodgers as his ONLY QB. I may grab one just to keep him from getting a decent starter. It’s a 10 team league with 18 players rostered, so there is plenty to pick from so I won’t be killing him, just narrowing his choices.

      i think i am really gonna take the risk and pick him up and play him as my WR… I mean honestly if he only throws for like 150 yards and runs for another 30 and a TD your Golden

      • Brandon 3:51 pm on December 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        My worry is that he goes Kyle Orton on us and ends up with a negative score or something! Or worse, he goes Todd Collins on us, throwing for 32 yards, 4 INTs and gets sacked a couple times :-/

      I grabbed Webb for shits and giggles lol. My team had been dubbed the “QB Carousel Calamity” because I’ve had at least 3 QBs on my roster all season. This week with Webb I have 4 lol. Might as well win my playoff game in style!

      alright guys, it’s Fantasy Football playoff time. I made the playoffs in all 3 of my leagues (14-team league with a 6-8 record … 4 other teams had a 6-8 record, however I had the most points amongst those 6-8 teams … w00t); anyways, here is where I stack up in each of my leagues – tell me who to start/sit:

      [b]12-team league playoffs:[/b]
      QB Kerry Collins
      QB Aaron Rodgers (looking like he’s out)
      QB/WR Joe Webb
      WR Greg Jennings
      WR Percy Harvin
      WR Pierre Garcon
      WR Austin Collie
      RB/WR Danny Woodhead
      RB LeSean McCoy
      RB Steven Jackson
      RB Ronnie Brown
      RB Ricky Williams
      TE Vernon Davis

      start: 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 WR/RB – so far, I’ve got Collins, Woodhead, Webb, McCoy, Jackson, Davis, Brown, Suisham (K – PITT), and NYG DEF
      the team I’m playing against currently has: Kitna, Colston, Britt, Mendenhall, Bradshaw, Zach Miller, Anthony Dixon, Vinateri (K), and OAK DEF

      [i] Woodhead and Webb are my players i’m contemplating … [/i]

      [b]14-team league playoffs:[/b]
      QB Kerry Collins
      QB Aaron Rodgers (looking like he’s out)
      QB/WR Joe Webb
      WR Kenny Britt
      WR Austin Collie
      WR Anquan Boldin
      WR Stevie Johnson
      RB Jamaal Charles
      RB Michael Bush
      RB Brian Westbrook
      RB Anthony Dixon

      start: 1 QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 WR/RB/TE – so far, I’ve got Collins, Britt, Joe Webb, Jamaal Charles, Michael Bush, Vernon Davis, David Akers (K), and PITT DEFin …
      the team I’m playing against currently has: Flacco, Miles Austin, Marques Colston, Michael Turner, Peyton Hillis, Matt Forte, Matt Bryant (K), and SD DEF …

      [i] I’m playing the #1 ranked team this week in the playoffs and pretty much have a crappy team, especially with Rodgers biting the dust and possibly not playing this Sunday night. So is benching Westbrook for Michael Bush a good play? McFadden+Bush killed Denver, at Denver, earlier in the year – and their run def is last in the league … also, not sure about Joe Webb … just trying to balance a MNF player for his MNF player (Forte) … [/i]

        Wowsers…any way you can just decipher who to start off the player rankings for this week? 🙂

    • Hawgman 9:38 am on December 17, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Depending on how he does this week and if I make it to next week, he might be worth the $5 it will cost me to pick him up…

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Giants will play the Vikings in Detroit on Monday night, so get all of your players in the line-up as normal…especially since it’ll be an indoor game and not outdoors in the snow!

    • Squish 6:15 pm on December 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah the metrodome caved in because of snow. The tickets to the game in Detroit are free to anyone who wants to go so if you live in the area make sure you grab a few.

        Word has it there might be a future game in Cuse at the Carrier Dome, an hour from where I live. That’d be pretty sweet.

        • Squish 4:27 am on December 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          That’d be cool if the Vikings ended up like the Globetrotters and just played in random cities every week lol.

      FINALLY!! The NFL has brought professional football to Detroit! Wonder if they will ever place a team here…

    I’m hearing now that the New York Giants vs Minnesota Vikings game could be played on either Tuesday or Wednesday night and that the game could be held at either A) the University of Michigan stadium (outdoors), B) at the Detroit Lions stadium, or even C) in New Orleans! Either way, I’m assuming that the game WILL be played and that most fantasy football websites should include the scoring for week 14. I’ll keep posting as we hear more though…
