    User Requested Player Rankings – Week 11 

    As with last year, instead of automatically ranking every player at every position (like the big sites with the big bucks do :-)), I’ll be ranking all requested players against other requested players. For example, if you have four wide receivers and you’re trying to fill three spots, you just comment with the four names and I’ll rank them against each other. In essence, this will accomplish the same thing as if you were to scan a complete list of wide receivers for where your four guys rank.

    Here’s a link to the Google Doc spreadsheet for those viewing on mobile devices. Anyways, feel free to start submitting names for me to rank! I’ll start the list off with a few guys that were on the list last week.

    Just a disclaimer…I’m more likely to put your players on the list faster if you just give me a couple names to compare. When you comment with your entire team, it makes me less likely to get the players listed until the very last minute. (View the rankings after the jump)… (More …)

              Can you please add Blount? Trying to decide on which two to start out of Blount/Wells/Green-Ellis.

              I feel like it’s a lose/lose situation regardless of which two I choose. πŸ™

        can you add D murray , AJ green, l robinson and b. marshal and who should i start (i have drew brees who has a bye) tebow or A. Dalton

        • Mike 10:03 am on November 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Tebow. I think he will be forced to run it. I have serious doubt s about whether he will get much passing, especially with 2 of the best corners playing on the Jets. Im hoping for heavy ground yardage out of necessity. At least one TD

        • Brandon 10:08 am on November 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Just added those guys. As for your quarterback, Dalton has a tough match-up and I think you go with Tebow, who has the most upside for sure.

        I have a Gore issue.
        With Foster on his Bye I thought it would be good to pick up Gore. Well not so good at the moment.
        My line up:
        Romo
        Cruz
        Damian Williams
        Marshawn Lynch
        Reggie Bush
        Flex
        Ballard
        Janikowski
        49s

        Should I play gore even if he is limited or do you think they will rest him especially since next week they have a Thursday game against the ravens? Should I rely on Hunter as a back up or just stay away from 49s all together this week and pick up Vincent Brown for my flex?

        If you have the roster space, feel free to pick up Vincent Brown. He should continue to get plenty of looks with defenses focusing on Gates and Vincent Jackson.

        I have Reggie Bush one spot ahead of Gore at the moment. I’m concerned with Gore’s health as he’s now nursing two injuries, while Bush is in the midst of the best games of his life.

        If McGahee doesn’t play tomorrow, you have to start Lance Ball with DeMarco Murray. If it appears that McGahee will start though, then go with Benson over Ball. Good luck!

      And, do you think (based on this past sunday’s 55-8 runs:passes ratio that Lance Bell will be a better start over BJGE?

      • Brandon 10:48 am on November 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Just listed them. I would probably start Lance Ball over Green-Ellis no matter what, but especially if McGahee is out tomorrow. Green-Ellis is just too inconsistent at this point to really count on.

      i got a few qb’s for the list for the best 1wk brees replacement? sanchez, haselback, sam bradford, alex smith, matt moore, andy dalton, john skelton, & vince young. thanks!

        If McGahee plays, go Brandon Lloyd and A.J. Green (assuming he plays – go Wells if he doesn’t). If McGahee doesn’t play, go Lloyd and Ball.

        At QB, I’ll have those guys added to the list shortly.

      What do you think about dropping Detroit’s D for New England’s D?

      • Brandon 10:41 am on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Probably not a big deal. Detroit has a tough next couple games (although they could give Cam Newton some trouble.) I like New England in most of their match-ups more than Detroit at this point.

      • Brandon 10:51 am on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        That’s a tough one and it seems crazy, but I think I go Robinson this week. As long as Miles Austin is out, Robinson will get plenty of looks and has a knack for finding the end zone.

            Looks like Julio Jones may not even play, so that takes him out of the equation. Go Ryan Mathews and hope he can pick it up a bit from what he’s been doing recently.

      Pls add Tony Gonzalez, Ray Rice, Pats D/St.

      And: which D/St would you guys keep for ROS: SF or NE?
      (STD defensive scoring plus 1pt per 10 kick return and per 20 punt return yards – both seem to have decent return teams……).

      • james hance 9:26 pm on November 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        id say SF, just my two cents

      • Brandon 9:32 am on November 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Stick with San Francisco. The Patriots schedule may be easy, but they’re not a good defense to begin with. The 49ers defense is solid.

        • TJ 5:01 pm on November 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks, I’m sticking with SF.

          One more Q for you: I have the good luck of needing to pick two to start 2 from R Rice, Murray, & Mike Bush – curious about your reasoning for ranking them as you did… I’m overthinking this way too much right now, can think of a reason to start & bench all three. Last week i sat Bush and his 30pts – luckily still won, bit it was close!

    • Scottie G 9:39 pm on November 16, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I have Dez and Steve smith. Should I trade victor Cruz and Felix jones for marshawn lynch? Then I can go 3rb’s. Peterson Johnson lynch. Or I Cruz better to keep in a ppr format?

      • Brandon 10:44 am on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Hang on to Cruz. Lynch’s trade value is at its peak with all the TD’s he’s scored lately, but he should come back down to earth. You really want to see what Felix Jones does when returning from injury as well before trading him.

      • Brandon 10:48 am on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Just added Rice to the list. I’d go Rice and Turner this week. The Dolphins are actually pretty good against the run and Fred Jackson could have his hands full.

        They’re up there. Not high on any of them this week really, but they all have a chance to put up solid numbers.

    • Sarah 3:35 am on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Hi Brandon
      quick question. i’ve been proposed a trade Steve Smith and Jeremy Maclin for Eli Manning ( my backup QB but i don’t need him anymore) and Marshawn Lynch. I am projected to do 15 pts less than my opponent on week 11 and it’s very important that I win this week. I need someone better than Ryan Matthews for my flex. what do you think? should I look somewhere else or is that a good deal?

      • Brandon 10:49 am on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        That trade looks pretty fair to me. You seem to need help at WR? I assume that’s Steve Smith of the Panthers right? Also, do you have plenty of depth at RB where you can give up Lynch?

        • Sarah 5:11 pm on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Thank you. Yes, Steve Smith from Car. Panther. I have Dwayne Bowe, Roddy White ,Ted Ginn Jr as my W/R, and I picked up recently Brandon Tate from the waiver . My R/B are Ryan Matthews, Fred Jackson, MichaelTurner and I recently picked up Marshawn Lynch rthat this guy wants desperately ( don’t know why). The way our team is set up is a little different than others since we’re counting returning yard, reception yard and more (if you don’t mind taking a look at that) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DIANfLdqlP7eaodO9cV58Ee0sg3gffR4aKFbbA-SILQ/edit?hl=en_US. This is why someone like Roddy White (overall 74 pts) has a lot less points compare to other W/R such as Steve Smith (134 pts). If you take into account all these factors, who do you think I should start as my W/R this week and who should i put as my flex?
          Thank you very much;)

          • Brandon 9:40 am on November 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Wow, a point for every 10 return yards is pretty crazy. Using that scoring system, it’s hard to bench Brandon Tate who has been putting up around 100 return yards a game or so, right? I’d make sure I get Steve Smith in your line-up as well.

      • Brandon 9:46 am on November 19, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Did you end up playing McGahee? If not, I’m not sure I gamble with DeSean Jackson if Vince Young is going to be his quarterback. Rice has a great match-up and is probably the safer play, even if his upside isn’t as high. Good luck!

    • Will 1:08 pm on November 17, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      OK, well now that I have a pretty nice line up, I figured I could do a little clean up and maybe do some trades for better alternates.

      STARTING
      Cam Newton, Car QB
      LeSean McCoy, Phi RB
      Fred Jackson, Buf RB
      DeMarco Murray, Dal RB
      A.J. Green, Cin WR *Q*
      Eric Decker, Den WR
      Jason Witten, Dal TE
      49ers D/ST
      Dan Bailey, Dal K

      BENCH
      Josh Freeman, TB QB **P**
      Brandon Jacobs, NYG RB
      Willis McGahee, Den RB **Q**
      David Nelson, Buf WR **Q**
      Saints D/ST D/ST **BYE**
      Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buf QB
      Peyton Hillis*, Cle RB **O**

      I just got Cam Newton, he’s projected to make about 15 fantasy points for me… but Freeman and Fitzpatrick are projected to do 14 and 15 respectively. Who should I start? I traded MJD for Newton but I’m starting to wonder whether that was a good idea…

      • Stephen 2:04 pm on November 18, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I think it was definitely a good idea, since you already have McCoy/Jackson/Murray at RB. Despite shoulder issue and Detroit D, I would probably start Newton still. If I were you though, I’d see about replacing Decker with a different WR with a more pass-friendly QB though. Maybe see if anyone would take any your bench players – I’d try to swing two bench players for a solid WR1. Maybe someone would take McGahee + Freeman or Fitz? You have strong depth at QB and RB, but it may be a good idea to compromise some of that depth for a strong starting lineup at WR. Your call though.

      Stumped on the WR options I have this week:

      Nicks, Robinson, Branch, Nelson, Marshall, and Cruz. Yeah, I’m WR top heavy, but I have two heavyweight RB’s and utlizing my flex, and bench for the WR set. My thoughts are Marshall, Nelson and Nicks are givens. I am torn between Cruz, Robinson and Branch – but I thought I’d put them all out there in the interest of full disclosure. Love the format of this – awesome.

      Please add: Tim Tebow, Matt Ryan, Reggie Wayne, Steve Breaston

      And would you start Pierre Thomas over Witten in a .5ppr/.25ppc?

      • Brandon 11:14 am on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Got your guys on the list. As for PT vs Witten, I’d roll with Witten. He’s got a great match-up with the Bills while the PT Cruiser plays the Falcons, who are pretty tough against the run.

      • Brandon 11:25 am on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Just added them. As for Jahvid Best, Yahoo’s little predictions don’t have him returning for a few more weeks and all I know for sure is that he won’t play this week. If you’re in danger of not making the playoffs and you need the roster spot, you might just cut him or trade him to someone who is willing to take the risk.

        • trade'em if you got'em 12:11 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Nah I’m in second in the league. And yeah I know Best will be out for a bit more. It’s just frustrating keeping him on my bench almost all season.

          So far me line up this week:
          Tony Romo
          Jacoby Ford
          Julio Jones
          Arian Foster
          Frank Gore
          Antonio Brown (flex)
          S. Janikowski
          SF

          The Bench:
          Reggie Bush
          Beanie wells
          Victor Cruz
          M. Lynch
          Best (broken)
          I also have Celek (TE) but was thinking of dropping him for L. Robinson or for a kicker depending on Janikowski this week.

          I like my line up but was wondering if the bush should be apart of it.

          I’m gonna leave beanie out this week since he is so unpredictable when injured and it looks like he will be that way the rest of the season

          • Brandon 2:17 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            That’s a tough one. I actually like Victor Cruz over Jacoby Ford unless it’s a kick return yardage league or something. Or you could play Antonio Brown over Ford and put Reggie Bush in the flex. I’m just worried that Ford may not be able to repeat his performance from last week, especially if they get Heyward-Bey involved again.

    • Adam 11:24 am on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      In my 8 team, 2QB, 3Flex league, I’m pretty stacked at both WR and RB. My only weak spot is TE, especially in week 11 when Owen Daniels is on bye (I’ll have to pick someone up off waivers).

      I’d like to propose a trade with an owner who has Jason Witten, Rob Gronkowski and Heath Miller. I’d take either Witten or Grokowski – both of whom are an upgrade from Daniels, I think. What do you think I should offer him? I’d like to start 1-for-1 offering Colston or Boldin. If he wants 3 TE’s (not sure why), I’d offer Daniels and one of those receivers or a mid-RB (Pierre Thomas or Cedric Benson). If he doesn’t want another TE, I’m thinking Pierre Thomas or Benson and Boldin or Colston.

      My other players are:
      WR: Dez, Smith (Car), White, Antonio Brown
      RB: Foster, McCoy, Blount, Murray, Tate

      What do you think?

      Hi Guys, hoping to get some input here. Here’s what my starting line-up looks like week 10:

      QB Drew Brees, NO QB
      RB Frank Gore, SF RB Q
      RB Ryan Mathews, SD RB P
      RB/WR Laurent Robinson, Dal WR
      WR Steve Smith, Car WR
      WR Jordy Nelson, GB WR
      TE Jason Witten, Dal TE
      D/ST Packers D/ST D/ST
      K Billy Cundiff, Bal K

      I am only unsure of my Flex flex. Would you go with Pierre Garcon, Jackie Battle, or Laurent Robinson? I’d also think that I may go with Laurent Robinson over Jordy Nelson. I am just concerned that I’ll miss a big week from PG or JB. Thoughts?

      • Brandon 1:36 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Can you play Nelson as a WR and Robinson as your Flex? Do that if so!

        • Greg Hammer 2:02 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I sure can. I’m just worried i’ll miss the first good performance of Garcon, or a solid 10 points from Jackie Battle for taking a flier on Robinson.

          • Brandon 2:13 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            I’d be more worried about missing a good performance from Robinson, who has been solid the past two weeks.

            • Greg Hammer 2:18 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink

              I think I’m with you on that. My last comment/question would be, do you trust a somewhat inconsistent Jordy Nelson in my WR2 spot, or go with Pierre who has a great match-up in what could be Indy’s only “win” of the year.

          • Brandon 2:24 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Not sure I’d consider Garcon’s match-up a “great” match-up, as the Jags are the fourth best team in the league against wide receivers (from a fantasy points perspective.) If the Jaguars lose it’ll be because their offense is bad, not because their pass defense faltered.

            • Greg Hammer 2:29 pm on November 10, 2011 Permalink

      Should I play A.J. Green aganist Pit, Julio Jones aganist NO or Brandon Marshall aganist Washingston?
      Dwayne Bowe is a for sure starter, which leaves two spots for WR’s open

    User Requested Player Rankings – Week 9 

    As with last year, instead of automatically ranking every player at every position (like the big sites with the big bucks do :-)), I’ll be ranking all requested players against other requested players. For example, if you have four wide receivers and you’re trying to fill three spots, you just comment with the four names and I’ll rank them against eachother. In essence, this will accomplish the same thing as if you were to scan a complete list of wide receivers for where your four guys rank.

    Here’s a link to the Google Doc spreadsheet for those viewing on mobile devices. Anyways, feel free to start submitting names for me to rank! I’ll start the list off with a few guys that were on the list last week.

    Just a disclaimer…I’m more likely to put your players on the list faster if you just give me a couple names to compare. When you comment with your entire team, it makes me less likely to get the players listed until the very last minute. (View the rankings after the jump)… (More …)

        It’s close, but see if you can hold onto Harvin and do Welker and Ingram for MJD and Bowe. In the end, you’re getting a RB1 and WR1 in return for possibly the best WR and a WR3 (and Ingram). As for Chris Johnson, you can trade for him if you don’t offer too much. He’s not much more than an RB3 at this point.

        That’s what I would do (and precisely the reason I ranked Murray higher.) Blount wasn’t a top tier RB to begin with so you might as well see what he does in his return before rushing him into your line-up.

            That situation is very fluid right now I think, as we hear the report that Bradshaw’s foot is broken, then immediately I hear that he’s not getting surgery and wants to play through it.

        Tough one there, but the easiest would be to simply pick up Crabtree off waivers and not worry about Lloyd. He’s a wildcard anyways as you don’t know how Bradford will use him when he’s back. Brown and Crabree are racking up targets/receptions and V-Jax has big upside (even if he’s been bad lately.) Hope this helps!

      The team with Lloyd has McFadden and is in desperate need of an RB as their other RB’s are Hardesty who is out and D Carter.

        Well, in theory Lloyd is actually a step DOWN from Lloyd, but this year things have changed a bit. Anyways, if he really needs a running back, then don’t give him so much in the deal! Give him Bush and a lesser wide receiver (one who doesn’t have the upside of V-Jax.) Take advantage of his desperation πŸ™‚

            Yeah as tough as it is to stomach, I think you keep rolling DeSean Jackson out there as long as he’s healthy (or until Brandon Lloyd starts blowing up and making the decision easy.) Jackson always has the potential for a 170 yard, 2 TD game, so you have to risk it and hope the other guys carry you when he puts up a goose egg (or close to it!)

      so, question…….what was your rational for putting Holmes below Branch and Crabtree?? I currently hold those 3 receivers and need to fill my WR#3 slot. Everyone else seems to think Holmes is far above Deon, but im inclined to think its Sanchez that I have to worry about. Now Crabtree has been getting progressively better and has been getting alot of targets. Thoughts??

      • Brandon 8:33 pm on November 4, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I just rearranged them actually and moved Holmes and Branch up a bit and switched them to put Holmes ahead. Santonio’s inconsistency is what scares me and he didn’t get a ton of looks last game. That being said, he could go out and score a touchdown on the first drive of the game. It’s really a toss up but something tells me Holmes is more likely to find the endzone.

    User Requested Player Rankings – Week 8 

    As with last year, instead of automatically ranking every player at every position (like the big sites with the big bucks do :-)), I’ll be ranking all requested players against other requested players. For example, if you have four wide receivers and you’re trying to fill three spots, you just comment with the four names and I’ll rank them against eachother. In essence, this will accomplish the same thing as if you were to scan a complete list of wide receivers for where your four guys rank.

    Here’s a link to the Google Doc spreadsheet for those viewing on mobile devices. Anyways, feel free to start submitting names for me to rank! I’ll start the list off with a few guys that were on the list last week.

    Just a disclaimer…I’m more likely to put your players on the list faster if you just give me a couple names to compare. When you comment with your entire team, it makes me less likely to get the players listed until the very last minute. (View the rankings after the jump)… (More …)

      Vick. He’s getting rated higher than I’d expect against Dallas, based on how QBs have performed thus far. Is that a function of Dallas’ pass D being largely pass rush based, as opposed to particularly strong coverage?

      • Brandon 3:29 pm on October 26, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The Cowboys have been great against the run, which means Vick will probably end up throwing the ball a lot. Of course I’m sure he’ll also run a lot as he scrambles around and the pocket breaks down. I don’t think the Cowboys secondary is anything special and they’ll be tested by DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. I like Vick this week at home on prime time TV.

            Gaffney and Branch are already on the list. Gaffney is a couple spots under Branch. The Steelers pass defense has been good…against BAL, SEA, IND, HOU, TEN, JAX and ARZ. I have a feeling this week they give up a few more yards then they did against some of those guys. Gaffney is a good play too though, with Santana Moss out.

        I wouldn’t drop him for any of those guys unless you absolutely had to. I’m thinking Williams could improve in the second half after the BYE as he’s getting so many targets and has started improving a bit the past few weeks. The team is also trying to get Josh Freeman back to the basics or something over the BYE and get him back to what was working last season for him, so that could possibly help as well.

        • e-roc 2:45 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I have 5 WRs. 3 are on a BYE (Roddy, DHBey, and Mike Williams). Are you suggesting that I sacrifice whatever points I might get to keep him? I’m cool with that. My guess is I’m only giving up 10-15 points by not starting anyone.

            Can you you only drop a WR to get a replacement? Do you have any other dead weight on your team you could sacrifice? If not, then maybe you gamble and grab Demaryius Thomas or something. I prefer to never start a team with an empty roster spot!

              I wish I could. Our league only allows 2 WR bench spots and my 5 WRs are:

              Roddy White (Bye)
              Megatron (v. DEN)
              Mike Williams (Bye)
              DHB (Bye)
              Torrey Smith (v. ARI)

              Mike Williams is the dead weight. 44th best WR in our league.. =/

              regarding who your other RBs are, if you’re in a position to even be considering this trade then I would say Yes.. I’d rather have Bryant than Torain, who you’ll never know what kind of game he’ll put up

            • Brandon 9:45 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink

              I’d say yes if you need help at WR and have a little RB depth to spare. if Torain is one of your top two starters though, you probably need to keep him, especially now that Tim Hightower is out for the year.

      • Brandon 10:22 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Added those guys to the list. At tight end I like Pettigrew a TINY bit more than Gronk, as Gronkowski is usually so reliant on touchdowns to earn points. As for your flex spot, I like all three, but I’d roll with a rested and healthy Stevie Johnson. Good luck!

      • Brandon 11:29 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I’ve added those receivers. You have to go with Brown against the Patriots if that’s the question. As for the waiver question, I’d hang on to Jordy Nelson and Demaryius Thomas. Cruz and Manningham are close, but they could keep switching back and forth each week as the #2 in NY and it could get pretty frustrating.

        • TJ 2:37 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks – I totally agree with you on Brown, he’s actually a pretty safe bet here if he’s returning too.

          On the waiver Q, forgot to mention Little….. I’m thinking this week he’s not a great play, but more consistency than Thomas going forward?

          • Brandon 9:41 am on October 28, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Thomas is higher risk, but the upside is higher than Little’s at this point as well. If you’re a gambling man, go Thomas. If you want some safe 6-10 points, go Little.

        Seems like a bit too much for me. Austin and Chris Johnson should be more than enough for McCoy and even that is pushing it. Can you wait until after this weekend? I’m very interested to see what Chris Johnson does. If he is bad again, I’m writing him off. Otherwise, he could make a comeback of sorts.

      Sorry…I posted this question in an older post, so I’m redoing it here:

      What do you think about a trade of Tebow for Murray? I have Brees and Cutler for bye week, so I really don’t need Tebow. Both only have one week under their belts, so both are a risk.

      • Brandon 3:04 pm on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        The only problem with Murray is that when Felix Jones returns in a couple weeks, he will end up splitting carries. Tebow will be the quarterback for the rest of the year as long as the team is competitive. If you need running back help right now, go for it, but if Murray is just going to be a backup, you might try to trade for someone else. Keep in mind that Murray’s trade value is probably near the ceiling right now after that huge game last week.

    • Adam 11:57 am on October 27, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I have Brandon Marshall and the Giants defense as my starters right now. The Dolphins are playing the Giants so should I put in Jenkins in place of Marshall or should I just go with it?

        I have Antonio Brown ranked slightly below Marshall, but it’s pretty close. Brown has a killer match-up against the Patriots pass defense, but he’s not the number one target in the offense. I like Brown over Jenkins though, that’s for sure.

        I would think you could get a better receiver than Colston or Fitzgerald for Newton at this point.

        I’m going with Nate Washington and Stewart. It looks like Stewart is starting to take some of Cam Newton’s goal line carries and Washington has a too good to be true matchup you don’t want to waste. Good luck!

      And where does Big Ben fit in the QB rankings this week against the Pats ?

    • Kathleen 7:40 am on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Antonio Gates. I have Gronkowski and Gates and can only play one. Gronkowski had 3 TDs against Pitt last year.

      • Brandon 9:39 pm on October 29, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        With Gates finally healthy, I think you have to go with him. Gronk had a huge game last year against the Steelers, but I’m pretty sure that means Pittsburgh will focus on keeping that from happening again. Aaron Hernandez was slowed down in that game last year and I see that changing this year. The only reason I go with Gates is because he’s one of Rivers’ top two targets, while Gronk has to fight for looks with Welker, Hernandez and Branch. Good luck!

        It’s a toss up with Stafford and Manning. Interestingly, the Dolphins are the worst against QBs in terms of fantasy points and the Broncos are the second worst, so both are great plays. Stafford is a little banged up this week, so for this time only I’d go with Manning. Go with Stevie Johnson over Fitz this week and Vincent Jackson over (Marshawn?) Lynch. Good luck!

      Hey – last second D/St question – where would any of you guys put SD & NE in that group, considering we get 1 pt per Kick return yard? (So lots of opposing kickoffs can be good, depending on the return teams. Punt yards are 1/2 that, rest of D scoring is standard).

    User Requested Player Rankings – Week 7 

    As with last year, instead of automatically ranking every player at every position (like the big sites with the big bucks do :-)), I’ll be ranking all requested players against other requested players. For example, if you have four wide receivers and you’re trying to fill three spots, you just comment with the four names and I’ll rank them against eachother. In essence, this will accomplish the same thing as if you were to scan a complete list of wide receivers for where your four guys rank.

    Here’s a link to the Google Doc spreadsheet for those viewing on mobile devices. Anyways, feel free to start submitting names for me to rank! I’ll start the list off with a few guys that were on the list last week.

    Just a disclaimer…I’m more likely to put your players on the list faster if you just give me a couple names to compare. When you comment with your entire team, it makes me less likely to get the players listed until the very last minute. (View the rankings after the jump)… (More …)

      Long-term: Carson Palmer v. Sam Bradford

      Week 7:
      RB – Beanie Wells, Daniel Thomas
      WR – Torrey Smith, Mike Overrated Williams

      • Corey 11:10 am on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Long term I like Palmer here. Mainly because he has more weapons and a better O-line. Bradford did get Lloyd to throw to but does that really help him improve on a team that can’t protect their qb long enough to hit Lloyd deep? Keep Palmer.

        I would play wells this week based on the matchups. You have to keep in mind that with Moore as the QB in Miami, Thomas is going to see 8 guys in front of him with a stacked box for the rest of the year. No teams will change that until Moore can beat them in the air. And even though Pit has had a history of stopping the run, they have been spotty on run defense this year.

        TB mike williams? Drop him and pickup Bey or Decker if they are available. Between Smith and Williams you have to play Smith here.

      • Brandon 3:22 pm on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Alright, I changed my mind already I like the known quantity of Steven Jackson just a bit more than DeMarco Murray and the worry that Tashard Choice will steal his carries. It’s VERY close, but I’m currently leaning towards Jackson.

        Keep Chris Johnson. That trade seems fair on face value, but I think Johnson is going to kick it up a few notches soon. Brandon Marshall is always a wild card and the Rams offense is a mess.

      • Corey 11:15 am on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        I would pass. And the reason I say this is that there is something going on with White. I’m not sure what it is but after this week is a bye and I’m betting on White finally taking off. Dez has to compete with Austin/Witten and Ryan looks to White a ton.

        Targets
        White 58
        Witten 45
        Austin 34
        Bryant 23

        Keep White. As long as he’s on the field he’s going to be targeted heavily, even with Jones on the other side. It only helps his value long-term.

      I was going over a possible trade in my head that i might offer.

      What do you guys think of me trading Mark Sanchez, Reggie Bush, and Plaxico from my team for Carson Palmer and Chris Johnson in a PPR? I recently acquired Sanchez and Plaxi for Jahvid Best πŸ˜‰ and Starks.

      More Detailed Info: It’s an alright deal for the other party (who is also a die-hard Jets guy) to accept before this weeks game, although i may be forced to wait until next week. Not to see how Palmer plays out or if Chris Johnson actually does something (although that’s what i’m giving the other guy a chance to do), but because I’m short on RB’s. Foster, MJD and FJax usually start but Jackson has bye this week and i actually need Bush because i am left without back-ups.

      Advice from anyone is in advance much appreciated.

      • Corey 1:00 am on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        You can offer it but I’m going to guarantee you that the trade would be rejected. Sanchez is terrible, Bush is a #2 and Plaxico….well there’s no chemistry what so ever with Sanchez. And by giving up best and starks even though best in injured was a bad trade imo. There are more valuable qbs and wrs/rbs on waivers then owning any of those 3. Not trying to be rude but this is just my opinion.

      • Brandon 3:28 pm on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Reggie Bush

      I plan on starting Chris Johnson and DeMarco Murray. Does that sound right? I’m on the fence between Murray, Torain and Williams.

      Please help! πŸ˜›

      • Corey 1:03 am on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Torain had 10 carries for 22 yards against the WORST rushing defense in the league. Yea you can blame it on Rex and his INTs but 2.2 yards a carry against the eagles is terrible.

        Deangelo williams I would just drop. I drafted him and I dropped him 3 weeks into the season. Yea he had one fluke game on one long run vs NO but other than that, Jonathan Stewart is running better, plus cam is getting the goal line touches mainly. I go with CJ and Murray. Murray has great matchups over the next few weeks.

        Hope it helps, just my 2 cents

      Had this trade proposed to me today. I am thinking no, but would love some feedback from the community.

      Proposed trade: A.J. Green (my team) for Tim Hightower and Mike Tolbert.

      Here is my team:
      QB – Matt Schaub, Curtis Painter (who I am most likely dropping for Tebow or Cassel)
      WR – Miles Austin, Jordy Nelson, Darrius Heyward-Bey, DeSean Jackson, AJ Green, Pierre Garcon, Devin Hester
      RB – MJD, Arian Foster, Darren Sproles
      TE – Dallas Clark, Brando Pettigrew
      K – Jason Hanson
      Def – Detroit

      And his team:
      QB – Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco
      WR – Brandon Marshall, Brandon Lloyd, Andre Johnson, Victor Cruz
      RB – Darren McFadden, Steven Jackson, Frank Gore, Mike Tolbert, Time Hightower
      TE – Fred Davis, Aaron Hernandez, Vernon Davis
      K – Mason Crosby
      Def – Pittsburgh

      Any ideas on counter-offers? Or should I keep Green and reject the offer? Thanks!

      • Corey 12:55 am on October 20, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        For starters reject that trade. Hightower and that redskin backfield is more confused then a psych ward at a mental hospital. Shanahan can’t make up his mind and it will be that way the rest of the season. And tolbert has lost most of the carries to Mathews. Mathews is the clear #1 now and he’s getting upwards of 20 carries a game compared to Tolbert around 5 or so a game. Yes Tolbert will still get an occasional vulture score at the goal line BUT Mathews is starting to get goal line carries as well. Basically it’s a scrum of the pack offer and I wouldn’t accept that at all.

        I counter with A.J Green and MJD for Gore and Hernandez. Hernandez has alot of value imo going forward in the Pats offense and Gore has very favorable matchups the rest of the way. MJD has been “OK” this season, If Gabbert can start making the defense play honest that will open up mjd more often but I think the best option here is Gore and Hernandez, mainly because you upgrade your RB and TE in the process.

        Just my 2 cents

          Hmm. interesting take. What do you think if I try for Gore-Hernandez by offering Miles Austin and AJ Green? Do you think Sproles will get the Job done for me this week if I do offer up MJD? (if that’s the case, I may do a Gore-Hernandez-Tolbert(?) and offer up Austin-Green-MJD.

        I would bench Ryan Torain after last week’s performance against the worst run defense in the league. He plays against the worst run defense again, while MJD is against one of the best, but I still lean towards MJD over Torain.

        I respectfully have to go the other way with this one and my reasoning for this is that last week vs the eagles, Rex tossed up 4 ints, they were down 20-3 and Torain only had 10 carries. Then you add in the fact that Rex got benched and the eagles keyed on making the rookie Beck beat them through the air. Torain didn’t have a chance to have a good game last week because of that. I think this week Torain should have a very decent game against the 31st worst rush defensive team in the league who are giving up over 140 yards a game plus have allowed 8 rushing tds to opposing rbs.

        The reason I think MJD has a *failure* week is that Baltimore is playing some great defensive football. If you look at all of the runners they have faced this year: Mendenhall 45 yards, Chris Johnson 53 yards, C. Williams 75 yards, Shonn Greene 25 yards and Foster 49 yards. Baltimore gives up a mere 76 yards rushing a game and have only allowed 1 rushing touchdown all year. Baltimore will focus on MJD and will be forcing Gabbert to beat them with his arm.

        That’s why I would start Torain over MJD.
        Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

      WR: Lloyd, VJax, or Fitzy this week? also any recommendations on a sleeper TE that could fill in well this week for Gronk?

        VJax is up against Revis and Vjax is not 100% healthy so I would bench him.

        As far as Lloyd and Fitzy it’s almost a flip of a coin to who plays. They both have tough matchups. Well I should say that their QB throwing them the ball is going to have a tough matchup. Steelers D and Cowboys D will make it a bit harder for either WR to have time to get open. I would lean more towards Fitz though just based on the fact that Lloyd will more than likely have A.J Feely throwing him the ball and I think Kolb will have a little bit more time being able to target Fitzy.

        TE I would look at Fred Davis *redskins*, with Beck starting he will look to Davis alot. Not alot out there in fantasy land.
