    Week 11 FAIL: Randy Moss to the bench 

    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 was the final straw for Randy Moss, in terms of me starting him for one of my teams. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, with the team playing one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL…and how does he reward me? Another goose egg. He’s on the bench until he shows something/anything.

    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 continues to lead the pack!

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

      Nearly my entire starting lineup. Frank Gore, Jahvid Best, Randy Moss, Zach Miller. Gore was consensus #1 this week by everyone’s start lists. 12 rushes for 23 yards. Suffice to say I lost badly this week.

        I only had him at #2! 🙂

        But yeah, he (and the rest of the 49ers) seriously disappointed. Randy Moss was a complete disaster though.

      Bench?? I cut him, which is what the Titans will do in another few weeks…..

      My team did great, my week 11 fail that cost me a win was playing Mike Thomas instead of Steve Johnson. I have to find a way to forgive myself today. It was a dumb last minute move.

      • Brandon 4:49 pm on November 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        36 yards and a score from Mike Thomas aren’t too bad…unless you compare them to Steve Johnson 🙂 There was no way to predict that sort of outburst from Johnson though. 50% of the time you’ll get that decision right.

      Let’s see – I have a RB (McFadden), a TE (V. Davis) and THREE WR’s (Andre, Boldin, & Manningham) on this list. These guys wasted great efforts by Hillis and Big Ben. I lost by a very large margin!!!

      The Minnesota Vikings waived Wide Receiver Randy Moss just four games after they traded a 3rd Round Draft pick to the Patriots in order to land the veteran pass-catcher. Very shocking to learn about Moss release. Percy Harvin was injured during the Week 8 loss which means Moss would have been the teams only proven talent at WR. Fantasy Spin: Very Instead Moss will hit the NFLs Waiver Wire, but that doesnt mean he should be dropped from your Fantasy Roster just yet.

    Tennessee Titans awarded Randy Moss 

    Even though they had 22nd waiver priority, the Tennessee Titans put in a claim and were awarded wide receiver Randy Moss. Earlier there was a report that Moss would only play for a contender, so hopefully the Titans fit his definition.

    Now the big question…do I keep him on my bench next week or plug him in?)

      I wish him and the Titans all the luck in the world, but Moss is going to have to realize that he will have to do more than just show up. Acting like a professional wouldn’t hurt either.

    • Christy 5:45 pm on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I have Moss in my league, and I have to decide whether to play him as well!

      • Hawgman 7:00 pm on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Might not wanna play him this week – I think the Titans are on a bye.

      Does he have more upside than Holmes?

      • Brandon 10:44 am on November 4, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Does Moss have more upside than Santonio Holmes? If that’s the question, the answer is yes.

      D. Bowe and D. Bess? New England or Chicago? Please help!

    • AtlantaJJ (Janet) 3:36 pm on November 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m looking forward to Chris Johnson having more lanes open up for him since Moss should be a deep threat. CJ should see more points finally please oh pleas! 😉

    Randy Moss waived by the Minnesota Vikings 

    Just hearing (based on a report by the NFL Network) that Randy Moss has been waived by the Vikings…wow! Talk about a short stay. More information to follow as I find out…

      Wow, I didn’t see this. That’s ridiculous! Wonder where he will end up. SD? SEA? CLE? The only Wr I drafted more often than him was Reggie Wayne. Moss could end up killing me!

      I cannot even imagine the hilarity if Moss were to join the other Receiva Divas in Cin-city!! THAT’S a non-reality show I could watch. I mean everybody enjoys a good train-wreck!!

      • Brandon 8:48 am on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        No way I can see that happening…yet it definitely would be awesome, hah. Palmer doesn’t have the skills these days to utilize three receivers though and there would be some fireworks when they didn’t get their catches. I’m actually at a loss as to figuring out what team he would help. The only team I can think of that might work is the Colts, but I don’t see that happening.

          One word – RAIDERS!!! ;-P

          • Brandon 11:47 am on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            That would be funny and honestly, they would probably be in a better position to actually utilize his skills this time around. With such a good running game and Heyward-Bey starting to emerge, Moss would open up the field a bit and make their offense even better. Randy would hate going there again though.

    • Brandon 11:48 am on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m hearing that the Dolphins are interested, which is a little scary. Randy Moss, Brandon Marshall and Davone Bess would equate to one of the top receiving corps in the league.

      • Sloth 12:49 pm on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        There is rumor that the Seahawks are interested…..kind of a dead end in my opinion. The hawks line keeps getting hurt.

      • Hawgman 12:58 pm on November 2, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Could be a very strategic move by the Phins. They would get someone that would either get man coverage or take double teams away from Marshall and they would prevent the Pitty-Pats from getting him back for next to nothing.

        On the other hand, Moss is poison. I don’t know if I would want Marshall to see the example that Moss shows everyday. I can see it now – A play called for Bess underneath and both Marshall & Moss trotting down field for 5 yards or so not even trying because the play call was not for either of them. This move is a Moss trademark. Marshall seems to have his head back in the game after his implosion in Denver last year. I would hope that he can keep it there weather Moss goes to “South Florida” or not.

      I don’t suppose there is any chance that I’ll be able to start Moss this week is there?

      • Hawgman 6:11 am on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        You can start him, but don’t expect much of a game from him. His timing seems to be a little off…

      • Brandon 8:17 am on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Well, I assume if he’s claimed off waivers that he’ll be starting for some poor team this weekend (unless it’s a bye week team.) I have him in one league and have currently moved him to the bench for Christopher Ivory in a flex spot…pretty sad.

    Make sure to read this hilarious-ness (if you didn’t watch it to begin with) about the post-game press conference Randy Moss gave after the Patriots beat his new team.

    Is Tarvaris Jackson worth starting? 

    Obviously, you’ve got better options. At least I hope you do. But if you’re desperate, my feeling is that Jackson’s not an abysmal option if Favre sits (and I’m not saying he will). Jackson has been a first- or second-team quarterback (ok, mostly second-team) for several years now. He’s never had a weapon like Randy Moss at his disposal or a tight end as good as Shiancoe.

    OK, when it comes to talking up Jackson as a fantasy QB, that’s all I’ve got. It’s easy to take the other side and bash him, so I’m not going to bother, especially since two better low-end options have emerged this week (Fitzpatrick and Kitna), but for what it’s worth, I don’t think it’s ridiculous to start Jackson this week if you’re feeling both desperate and adventurous. The upside’s there, and its name is Randy Moss.

      Hey, the rankings thread is really long so I’m gonna ask this here. Need to play 2 WRs out of this motley crew; Roy Williams, Donald Driver, Steve Breaston, and Brian Hartline. PPR league. Thanks!

      • Brandon 12:25 pm on October 31, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Not that great of options, but I’d go with Roy Williams and gamble on Steve Breaston. Good luck!
