    Peyton Manning out minimum 2-3 months 

    This Peyton Manning talk is getting crazy. While most (all?) fantasy football drafts have come and gone, I hope you didn’t spend a high pick on him. Apparently he had another neck procedure and will miss 2-3 months at a minimum. At this point I can’t even recommend having him on your roster as a backup quarterback unless you have a deep bench and can carry three quarterbacks.

    Maybe this is his way of making the debate between he and Tom Brady easier. Now they can compare a season of the Patriots without Tom Brady to a season of the Colts without Peyton Manning to see who is more valuable!

      Apparently the operation he had is called a “cervical fusion.” I always knew Peyton Manning had a cervix.

    Week 10 FAIL: Peyton Manning. 

    Here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. 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 probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week the list is headlined by a couple Hall of Fame quarterbacks, but because Favre has been on the list almost every week this season, we’ll focus on Mr. Peyton Manning. Not a terrible game, since his team won and he didn’t throw an interception, but just 185 yards and no touchdowns?! Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen Manning put up those kind of numbers.

    I’ve included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a separate worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As usual, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them (and here’s a direct link to the spreadsheet)…

      roddy’s game isn’t enough to swing a matchup.
      had AP, moss, steve johnson, witten, NYG DEF! for crying out loud, fitzpatrick, all failed. lost to the last place team, no longer in first. guess that’s fantasy football at its best for ya. Kitna and amendola on the bench.

      Peyton Manning, Aaron Hernandez, Steve Johnson.. at least Sanchez threw to Keller bunch of times although he couldn’t haul it in.

    • Hawgman 4:29 pm on November 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      After the very disappointing week last weekend, I only have one player on the FAIL list – Witten. I had Felix, Orton, Cutler & Nate Washington burning holes on my bench, but I had Big Ben, Hillis, SJax, Andre, Boldin, and Carpenter in the line up and all of them were in double digits or close enough that it doesn’t matter.
      I think Vernon Davis should have been included also, but his main problems were TD’s called back due to penalty.

    Week 5 FAIL – Houston, we have a problem 

    Continuing with a new post for this season, here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. 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 probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week’s list is headlined by a couple of Houston Texans big timers, along with the one and only, Peyton Manning! Anyways, here’s the list of this week’s failures. Enjoy 🙂

        Good trade. The only sketchy part is Foster for Rice – that one could go either way.
        But yeah, take that sh*t and run with it.

      • Squish 3:17 am on October 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d make this trade every day of the week and twice on Sundays. Foster’s balloon is beginning to pop and Ray Rice has been underachieving. Wayne is an upgrade at WR over Royal and gives you 3 studs at the most inconsistent position. Ryan for Roethlisberger is a slight downgrade at QB but only temporarily. I expect Big Ben to be just as good as Ryan once he shakes the rust off.

      • Tommy 8:14 pm on October 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Ha, my friend ended up backing out.

        With my team, would you trade Matt Ryan and Eddie Royal for Hakeem Nicks, Alex Smith, and Kevin Kolb?

        • matt 12:19 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          As an owner of both rice and foster i would make this trade… matty-ice is pretty close to big ben in terms of qb1 value and wayne is a huge upgrade over eddie royal as a clear cut top 5 wr.. As far as foster and rice go its pretty close but after seeing rice punch in two goal line tds and a schedule that only gets easier down the stretch (minus pit) I would pull the trigger

        • Brandon 9:08 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Not sure that trade is all that great. Can you trade Colston/Ryan for Nicks (and one or both of those trashy QB’s)? I love Hakeem Nicks, but also think Eddie Royal will be solid this year and you’re giving up one of your top QB’s for some guys who may not even be starting in a few weeks.

        The guy I’m playing this week is in desperate need of a Wide Receiver, as he has none benched and Ochocinco is on bye. He has Ryan Mathews, and I would like to trade for him as I think he’ll improve considerable over the next few weeks. I was thinking of trading Brandon Jackson and Lance Moore for him. Is that too much? Too little?

        I appreciate your help.

        • Brandon 12:17 pm on October 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I think that is a fair trade. Lance Moore is so inconsistent and Reggie Bush should return, stealing some of his value as well. Mathews should be much better than Jackson when the dust settles.

      Hey guys, I’m looking for a bit of defensive advice. I drafted Baltimore’s defense which hasn’t performed very well for fantasy purposes. I’m thinking about dropping them and streaming from here on out. Does that sound reasonable?

      The defenses out there in my league include TEN, ATL, DET, NE and KC. Any thoughts on which to pick up or should I just hang onto BAL?

      • matt 12:21 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        hang onto BAL, they will come around and ed reed is due back soon

        • J 2:07 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          TEN, KC, and NE are all worth it… Especially KC or NE.

      • Brandon 9:11 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I like Tennessee and Atlanta this week. If your league awards return yards as part of the DEF/ST unit (only one person I know has a league like that) then NE and KC are also solid. I’m worried about New England though. They got VERY lucky last game with the blocked kicks and some interceptions, but besides that one game, they haven’t been all that great. Brandon Tate helps with his kick returns, but I don’t see that happening every week. I use the “streaming” approach in all my leagues though, so I can’t tell you not to do it 🙂

        • Squish 12:26 am on October 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I actually had Bernard Scott on my roster still and don’t think he’ll get picked back up so I went after the SD defense who just got dropped today. That being said would you rather play SD or BAL defense this week? I’m leaning SD.

          • Brandon 10:44 am on October 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            Go with San Diego. Baltimore is actually one of the worst scoring defenses for fantasy at this point…which seems odd. In one of my leagues, it’s the 3rd worst defense! On the other hand, San Diego is the fourth best. Plus, the Ravens are playing the Patriots, who are sure to put up points and hopefully won’t turn the ball over (go Pats!)

        Although the Giants scare me a bit, I think you go with Shaun Hill, who seems to be getting in a groove with his receivers (just in time for Stafford to take back over!)

        Alex Smith will have a huge game vs. Detroit.

        Am I supposed to pick one WR? If so, then Crabtree. I’m a big fan of having a QB-WR duo on the same team (I have Rivers, Jackson, and Gates all on my team).

      • Brandon 10:46 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Tommy on Alex Smith, but at receiver I like Robert Meachem, who should rebound with a touchdown this week as the Saints fight for home field advantage through the playoffs. All of those receivers make solid plays though.

        Keep an eye on Williams, but at this point the ankle doesn’t look good. Fitz is a must-start every week, and Ocho’s got KC so that’s a winner.

        Those are some ridiculous options. Andre Johnson is the absolute must-start of this group. Even though you’d normally think of Moss as a must-start, I’d bench him in your case because he’s gone five games in a row without a 100-yard performance, that troubling one-catch game was only two weeks ago, and he’s averaged just over three catches per game over the past five.

      I’m looking pretty good going into the championship game with a healthy team and great matchups to boot while my opponent has some really tough matchups, a key guy that might sit and injury problems.

      Last week I started (we get return yards btw).:

      Rivers
      Moss
      Fitzgerald
      Cribbs
      Rice
      Wells
      Tony Gonzalez
      Saints
      Tynes
      James Harrison (this week I picked up Beason for this slot)

      My opponent has
      McNabb
      Mason
      Cotchery
      DeSean
      Barber
      Harrison (he picked him up this week for Forsett, he’s got Turner out)
      Dallas Clark
      Steelers
      Nugent
      London Fletcher

      My question is related to my RBs. I had been using Pierre Thomas all year long until 2 weeks ago but it’s been effort poorly spent.

      I have been toying around with the idea of starting Wells and Thomas this week to avoid the Steelers run D with Rice but there’s no way to bench him. So Wells or Thomas? Right now I’m leaning heavy towards Wells since hes the man, riding a 2 game TD streak and even the Texans could run on the Rams, plus I expect AZ to get up early.

      • Matt 9:51 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree – you’re going with Wells for all the right reasons. This is going to be a rout and the Cards use Wells far more than Hightower in these kinds of games, with last week’s game in Detroit (17 rush, 110 yards and a score) a perfect example of what he can do against a bad opponent. He’s a virtual lock for a nice game, whereas the same certainly can’t be said for Thomas, who hasn’t found the end zone since week 11.

        QB – Which Manning? If it’s Peyton, then go with him. If it’s Eli, then go with Ben.
        WR – Smith. By a mile. Don’t overthink this one.
        DEF – Pats. But check your waiver wire. Are the Falcons or Cowboys available? (See my post on this.)

    • Sam 11:40 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      this is who I have, who should I start. Some are obvious put I’m still putting my whole line up.

      QB – Rivers, Orton
      RB – C. Johnson, Ganther, M. Morris, Jennings, Westbrook
      WR – Austin, Ochocinco, Avery, Burleson, J. Morgan
      DEF – SF or NE

      1QB
      2RB
      2WR
      1WR/RB
      1DEF

      • Matt 9:58 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        QB – Rivers by a mile, no question.
        RB – CJ + Ganther
        WR – Austin + Ocho (by a mile)
        DEF – 49ers. Again, by a mile.

        These are all straightforward picks, which is great – no second-guessing.

      • Matt 10:05 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I worry about Romo this week – Washington shut him down pretty well earlier in the season, and despite their issues they always show up to play in division games. Smith has Detroit, one of the sweetest matchups for any fantasy QB, and in your shoes I think I’d give him a shot over Romo.

        There’s no way you bench Harrison this week. Absolutely no way, especially given that he’s got another sweet matchup. So go with him, both Jacksons, Rice, and Moss.

      What kills me is that any bozo can make an internet fantasy page. Even the ones that charge typically have incompetent people giving their opinions. Think about this. Buffalo has the #5 pass defense in the NFL for 2009. This week they lost their #1 corner and their all pro safety who has 9 ints. Now, how is it that you can tout the great Buffalo pass defense. THEY’RE NOT PLAYING!!! Do your homework! And their #2 corner is out too! Who’s gonna cover?

      Hey Guys, looking for advice from anyone who would like to share it.

      My RB situation is totally messing with my head.

      Pick 2

      Marion Barber…coming off his best game of the season and up against the pitiful Redskins.
      Jonathan Stewart…if Deangelo is out again this guy seems to dominate. Going up against a decent Giants run D.
      Lawrence Maroney…at home vs. the Jags, he has been my most consistent back over the last few weeks. I also have Brady though, so if the Pats get shut out or limited to FGs then I’m screwed by playing both guys. (I know its unlikely)
      Pierre Thomas…on the best offense in the league, but has really been pretty lousy for the last 4-5 games. No PPR for RBs in in my league, otherwise he’d be a must start. Up against the Bucs worst run D in the NFL.
      And the Sleeper.
      Last weeks mystery stud Michael Bush…I’m not really considering him, but he did have a huge game last week, and this week he plays the god awful Browns.

      Thanks!! Merry Xmas.

        The only real change I’d consider making is replacing Antonio Bryant with Austin Collie. Collie will most likely not be one of the Colts benched early if they decide to go that direction in this game. Good luck.

      • Brandon 10:05 am on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Holmes and Ochocinco at wide receiver, with Michael Bush over Chambers in the flex spot. The worry with Chambers is that Dwayne Bowe will take over as the top receiver now that he’s back in the swing of things.

      Quarterback Dilemma:

      I have Manning slated to start v. Jets; but Warner v. Rams on the bench. My gut says go with Warner v. Rams (they are terrible) but he has been average at best the past two weeks. But Manning faces the #1 defense in the NFL, and may have limited playing time…

      What to do?

      QB: Peyton Manning or Alex Smith
      WR: Randy Moss, Brandon Marshall, or Santonio Holmes (I need two receivers)
      RB: Laurence Maroney or Marion Barber
      I’d really appreciate your help as you can see I have good players thats why its so hard for me to decide.

      • Brandon 11:43 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Alex Smith with a great match-up against the Lions. At receiver, Moss and Marshall, with Maroney filling out the running back spot. Good luck dude!

      Mason or driver this week?

      • Brandon 11:42 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yahoo apparently loves Donald Driver this week, but I’m going with Derrick Mason, who has a touchdown in two straight games is the uncontested number one receiver in the offense.

      Maurice Morris or Brian Westbrook? Normally a no brainer. You can’t predict BW’s touches but I don’t trust backups who have one good game as a fill-in #1. Westbrook is home and Morris is away. Denver has batter D. I’m squarely on the picket fence and it’s not comfortable.

      • Tommy 6:36 pm on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        10000000% Maurice Morris. Westbrook is a complete gamble, and Maurice Morris is guaranteed carries.

        • Greg 11:06 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Here’s another one. Chris Chambers or Hakeem Nicks. RE Nicks, I shy away from bad hammies, but I think his projections are rising. Someone knows something! As of now I have Chambers penciled in.

        Gotta agree with Tommy here, go with Maurice Morris.

      Merry Christmas!
      I would like some lineup help please. I am in a PPR league that rewards return yardage. Thanks for your help!
      QB: Aaron Rodgers
      RB: Ray Rice, Thomas Jones, Beanie Wells, Forsett, or Hightower.
      WR: Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Miles Austin, or Johnny Knox (I need two)
      TE: Jermichael Finley or Fred Davis (I need one)
      Flex: Any of the above WR’s or RB’s (I need one)

      Thanks again!

        Sorry. Forgot to say how many RBs I need. I need two. Thanks again!

        RB: Ray Rice and Beanie Wells
        WR: Andre Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald
        TE: Fred Davis
        W/R: Miles Austin

      • Brandon 11:46 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Tommy for the most part, but I like Jermichael Finley over Fred Davis this week. I wish you could get Thomas Jones in there somehow, but it looks like he’ll have to cheer your team on from the bench this week.

      Merry Christmas All !!! Should I start New England or Miami D this week ??? This is for all the marbles….LOL Thanks for any input !!!

        Go with New England this week…I have a good feeling about them playing at home.

    • aker 8:34 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’ve got Gonzalez at TE. Finley is available, and I’m looking to find points anywhere I can get them. Thoughts as between the two? Gave up Vernon Davis earlier in the season thinking that I would never justify starting him over Tony G. Don’t want to foolishly overestimate Gonzo again. Your advice is always appreciated.

      • Brandon 11:38 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d stick with Gonzo this weekend. He’s been getting looks on a consistent basis all season and there’s no real reason to switch to Finley.

      Help! At QB — Matt Schaub or Alex Smith?

      • Tw 5:45 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        SF is not playing for their play-off lives and has a running game, Smith looked poor last wk, DET is improving
        I’d stick with Schaub
        GOOD LUCK

      • Brandon 11:04 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Tw here, go with Schaub who plays a Dolphins team that was just lit up by Vince Young of all people last week.

      In the final – $600 on the line playing the number 1 team
      PPR, 1pt/20yds rush/rec, 6 pts/TD
      Need 2 RB: Rice, Wells, PT, Harrison
      Need 2 WR: Colston, Driver, Crabtree
      Need 1 TE: Dallas Clark,Finley
      Am thinking Rice, Wells, Colston, Crabtree, Finley
      Thoughts?
      Worth mentioning that my opponent has Rogers, so Finley over Clark seems like the right move (IND may rest starters). Really torn over Driver vs. Crabtree.
      My line-up (as of now):
      Brees, Rice, Wells, Colston, Crabtree, Finley, Bironas, Cards D

      Opponent:
      Rogers, AP, Benson, Wayne, Welker, Winslow, Akers, Ravens D
      How do you like my chances???

      • Brandon 11:09 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I also like Rice, Wells, Colston and Finley, but at receiver I’d go with Donald Driver, who has proven to have more big game potential than Crabtree at this point.

        As for your chances, it should be a pretty good battle, but hopefully Reggie Wayne has a short day and gives you the slight edge. Good luck and feel free to “donate” a bit of those winnings to the FFGeekBlog cause!

    • Tw 5:59 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Driver w/ Finley helps cover rodgers better
      Starting colston w. brees gives you the edge
      Good luck

    • Greg 10:05 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hakeem Nicks (bad hammie but his projections seem to be rising) or Chris Chambers?

      • Brandon 10:56 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I guess if you hear that Nicks is starting when they announce the actives/inactives, you could consider starting him, but I’d just go with Chambers who is definitely going to start and continues to put up numbers for the Chiefs.

        • Greg 12:18 pm on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks. I agree.

      Schaub or Brees . . . in the Finals. Decisions Decisions

      • Brandon 11:03 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wow, that’s a tough (but good) decision to have to make. Last time the Saints played Tampa Bay, he didn’t rack up all that much yardage, but he still managed three touchdowns. I’m guessing this week he throws for some solid yards and again gets the touchdowns as well as his team fights to clinch home field advantage in the playoffs. Go with Brees.

    • Swaimy 11:11 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      tough calls
      RB
      Thomas Jones or Jamaal Charles
      WR
      Mike Sims-walker or Hines Ward

        Go with Santonio Holmes. The other guys are too inconsistent or risky (if Peyton sits early.)

    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!

      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.

        • Adam 7:00 pm on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Wat u[ Brandpn. Who should I start, Chester Taylor or Felix Jones in a point for kick return league?

        • Brandon 11:38 am on December 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sorry for the late response. Did you end up starting Jones? Or you going with Taylor?

    • e-roc 7:43 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’ve never been one to bench my studs… and I’m glad I didn’t last night as MJD and Wayne both had awesome games.

      I am worried about Wayne’s PT going into Weeks 16 and 17…

      I have a 67 point head-start going into the weekend….!

      • Brandon 8:25 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Unfortunately Reggie Wayne was playing against me!

        • ken 1:48 pm on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          i considered benching wayne for a split second, glad i decided not too.

          now I gotta decide if I wanna bench Randy Moss and/or Vincent Jackson for Sidney Rice and Robert Meachem.

        • 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.
