      Looking for a little help:
      Sitting Peyton Manning this week i’m left with two options
      Big Ben vs. Baltimore
      Alex Smith vs. Detroit

      Also WR help:
      Driver vs. Seattle on the Frozen Tundra
      Crabtree vs. Lions miserable secondary at Candlestick
      Meachem vs. Tampa Bay at home

      • Tommy 4:57 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

    • Anthony 3:52 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need help with Flex Spots. I have Robert Meachem for WR and MJD for RB. I need to players for my flex spots. I have Mike Sims Walker, Laurence Maroney, Jason Snelling, Mike Sims Walker, Cadillac Williams, Josh Cribbs (no points for return yds), and Chester Taylor.

      Thanks!

        I like Laurence Maroney and Jason Snelling (against the worst run defense in the league) this week.

        Fitz and Ochocinco

      • Matt 9:43 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

      • Matt 9:04 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

    • Tommy 5:59 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Sit V-Jax. Tough decision though- those are 4 WRs that could be the #1 on any given fantasy team.

        I love Hines Ward this week against a banged-up Ravens secondary. Crabtree’s the odd man out for me.

    • nero 8:05 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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.

    • Matt Scott 9:54 pm on December 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      3 issues with my chamionship game this week.
      Manning or Benro in Week 16???
      NYG Steve Smith or Hester/ Clayton…My other WR is Mason.
      Pats or Carolina D???

      • Matt 9:54 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

        • Sam 10:56 pm on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          yeah i thought so. What about for the flex spot? I’m thinking Morris over Morgan?

        • Brandon 11:51 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          As you say, go with Morris over Morgan.

      First time in Championship. Have a couple of questions. I have on my team…
      QB-Romo, Smith
      RB-Rice, Harrison, Wells, Maroney, Jackson
      WR-R. Moss, Djax, NYG Smith

      We play 1 QB and I must start a min of 1 RB and 1 WR above. I have three more slots for RB/WR mix. Who should I start?
      Thanks a bunch and Merry Christmas!!

      • 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.

    • Sona 4:57 am on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      yeahhhhh! made it to the finals! 🙂 Thanks for the help till now 🙂 Need your opinion TE options : Kellen Winslow or Fred Davis. Flex position: Ganther, Maurice Morris, Hines Ward and Santonio Holmes Def available: Falcons, 49ers, Colts and Steelers

      • Brandon 10:08 am on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Fred Davis at tight end, Holmes in the flex spot and at defense, go with the 49ers.

    • Nick 12:06 pm on December 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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.

      I have a tought choice to make between Santonio Holmes, Ocho-Cinco and Chris Chambers at WR. Who should I start and should I bench Michael Bush against the Cleveland sieve D and use one of the WR as a flex?

      • 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?

      • Brandon 10:03 am on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Warner just in case Manning doesn’t play the whole game.

      KEEPER LEAGUE QUESTION —

      I’m in a keeper league and think I have a decent idea about who to keep on my roster — does anyone know of any article with a list of possible sleeper keepers for the next year (our rules are you can keep anyone you just lose a draft pick 2 rounds higher than the round they were originally drafted)

        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.

    • Greg 3:03 pm on December 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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.

      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.

      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:

      • 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!

        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.

      • 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.

    Team of the Week – Week 10: Fourth and 2… 

    Here is the fantasy football “Team of the Week” for week ten, listing the players that scored the most points (using standard scoring) over the course of Sunday’s games. This is a sad day for Patriots fans, having to witness yet another come from behind victory by Peyton Manning and the Colts, capped off by an “interesting” call on fourth down at the end of the game! Anyways, today’s list had very little surprises (except the kicker) and is basically a “who’s who” list of fantasy football superstars…

    Pos.

    Player

    Stats

    QB Tom Brady (NE) 375 passing yards, 3 TD, 1 INT
    RB Chris Johnson (TEN) 132 rushing yards, 100 receiving yards, 2 TD
    RB Adrian Peterson (MIN) 133 rushing yards, 10 receiving yards, 2 TD
    WR Randy Moss (NE) 179 receiving yards, 2 TD
    WR Brandon Marshall (DEN) 134 receiving yards, 9 rushing yards, 2 TD
    WR Reggie Wayne (IND) 126 receiving yards, 2 TD

      If Philly’s Red Zone offense wasn’t so terrible, D-Mac would have been the top scoring QB… 450 yards passing!!

      • Brandon 2:20 pm on November 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, that was a bit surprising actually. The San Diego pass defense was supposed to be pretty good…but at least they kept McNabb out of the endzone for the most part.

          ….to think, I almost traded McNabb, MJD and TJ Housh for Brees, Ronnie Brown and Crab-Apple….

    Wide Receiver rankings for 2009 

    Here is our wide receiver cheat sheet for this season:

    1. Randy Moss, NE – With Brady back, expect mucho touchdowns again
    2. Andre Johnson, HOU – He’s a reception machine and racks up the yards as well.
    3. Larry Fitzgerald, ARI – The age of his quarterback scares me a bit, but Fitz is a monster and would probably produce even with Matt Leinart in the lineup
    4. Calvin Johnson, DET – The team HAS to do better this year and Megatron should see a boost in his stats
    5. Steve Smith, CAR – Injury scare seems to have passed.
    6. Reggie Wayne, IND – Should be one of the more consistent options on this list.
    7. Roddy White, ATL – He got his money over the weekend and immediately made an impact in the first preseason game. Any scare about White missing practices can be erased now.
    8. Greg Jennings, GB – He’ll be Rodgers top target all season long.
    9. Anquan Boldin, ARI – Saying all the right things and claims to be focused on helping the team win…not on getting more money.
    10. Terrell Owens, BUF – DOWNGRADE! As much as I think he would put up great numbers if healthy all year, I’m wondering if he’ll be able to stay on the field, as he’s already missing practices with a “bum toe.”
    11. Dwayne Bowe, KC – After being demoted to third string recently for attitude/weight issues, he had a huge preseason game and there’s no reason to move him down at this point.
    12. Marques Colston, NO – In this high-flying, pass-friendly offense, Colston should see the most passes.
    13. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, SEA – UPGRADE! Braylon Edwards and Brandon Marshall just keep making the guys right below them on the list look a whole lot more appealing!
    14. Chad Ochocinco, CIN – UPGRADE! He’s healthy this year and Housh is gone. I’m optimistic he can make the best out of the situation. Apparently he can even kick extra points!
    15. Wes Welker, NE – Last time Brady was at QB, Welker was a Pro Bowler with eight TD’s and almost 1,200 yards.
    16. (More …)

      Lee Evans is going to surprise the hell out of you. He’s in his prime and finally has a complementary receiver to keep teams from doubling him on every play.

    • Brandon 10:53 pm on July 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @matt: it’s not Lee Evans I’m worried about…it’s Trent Edwards. The guy averaged under 200 yards passing per game and less than one touchdown. He has to prove he can throw the ball to make me believe that both T.O. and Evans can put up stats this season.

    • Matt 8:36 am on July 29, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon: Hard to rack up the yardage when your receiving corps is the laughingstock of the NFL. Check out their receiving stats from last season. Lee Evans at #1, Josh Reed at #2, no surprise there, but then the next three top receivers are two RBs and a TE. The third-best WR had 232 receiving yards. The much-ballyhooed rookie wideout Josh Hardy had 9 total receptions.

      This is why I can’t help but like the TO move, despite how much I loathe him as a personality. If there was ever a team that was held back by a lack of quality WRs, the Bills were it last year.

      Regarding T.O., let’s not forget that his first two teams after SF were the Eagles and the Cowboys. Two well-developed passing offenses with great quarterbacks. I just don’t see that same situation in Buffalo.

    • Bienio 2:17 pm on July 31, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I definitely think Fitz will be #1 and Roddy White will be top 5. Count it!

    Quick Hits (and Misses): Colts @ Jaguars 

    In case you weren’t aware, not only do we have a Thursday game this week, but we also have a Saturday game now that college football is coming to an end. I’ll get to my official HIts and Misses post at some point over the next day or so, but I wanted to get started with the game tonight, which features a few players that could hurt/help your chances at winning that Championship (or third place game) this week (or next week) as the Indianapolis Colts head to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars, so here we go…

    Hits

    • Peyton Manning, QB, Colts: To date, the Jaguars have given up 22 passing touchdowns, which ties them as the fourth worst team in the NFL in that area. Peyton Manning, on the other hand, is tied for 6th in the league with 23 passing touchdowns. Sounds like a pretty good match-up to me! With the game in Jacksonville, you won’t have to worry about bad weather screwing anything up (unlike what Kurt Warner and Matt Cassel owners should be worrying about this Sunday.)
    • Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts: With his quarterback a near lock to throw a couple of touchdowns tonight, expect Wayne to catch one of them to go along with around 80-100 yards or so. (More …)
     
    • Brandon 9:26 pm on December 18, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Northcutt with a touchdown already?!!! Maybe the Jaguars should have started him all season long…he’s done more than their other receivers could do this entire season in two games.

    • JT 3:15 pm on December 19, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      In the fantasy championship this week, and I need some advice.
      If D. Foster is declared the starter against St. Louis, do I consider benching S. Slaton/T. Jones/D. Williamas? I also have S. Morris sitting on my bench, who could get many carriers in the snow.
      Speaking of the snow, do I go with the NE or CLE defense ?
      Thnaks!

    • Brandon 3:31 pm on December 19, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @JT: First of all, I can’t advise you bench DeAngelo Williams for anyone at this point. Steve Slaton is playing a terrible Raiders run defense, so keep him in, while T.Jones plays the Seahawks, who aren’t anything special. Keep your three guys (Slaton, Jones, Williams) in there.

      As for your defense, I’d recommend playing the Patriots. If it gets sloppy in Foxboro (we have over an inch of snow in Connecticut today already!), the Cardinals could be forced to run and it could get ugly for them…but would be big for the Patriots defense. Hope this helps!

    • JT 1:14 pm on December 22, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks for reminding me to stay with my stars. Slaton and Jones didn’t have great days, but Williams pulled through for me.
      Great blog! See you next year!

    • Brandon (FFGeekBlog) 1:20 pm on December 22, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @JT: Yeah DeAngelo Williams went off huh?! I’m not sure what either the Texans or Jets were trying to do on Sunday, but it just wasn’t working for them. The Patriots almost pitched the shutout, but that garbage time touchdown probably took a few points from you. See you next season!

    Guest Post: Week 14 WR Fantasy Football Rankings 

    Editors’ note: The following post was written by a guest blogger, Josh from Pro Football 101.

    Must Starts:

    1. Randy Moss vs. Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have been getting lit up through the air, and until last week, Cassel was torching defenses as well. Look for Cassel to get back on track and for Moss to be the recipient of a lot of medium to deep passes. Strong fantasy play. 100 yards and 2 TDs.

    2. Marques Colston vs. Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are playing very well this year and are actually only one game out of first in the division. Regardless of that fact, very few teams have been able to stop Brees and his passing attack, and we don’t see it happening this week in the Superdome. Look for Brees and Colston to once again have big fantasy days on Sunday. 100 yards and 1TD. (More …)

      I have Wayne, Boldin, Brandon Marshall and Hixon.

      Which three would you start?

    • Josh 12:04 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      That’s a good problem to have… I’d definitely start Boldin – the Cards are always a pass first team. I’d also start Wayne because regardless of match-up, and the Colts could get an early lead and begin running the ball, he’s always a must start. So the dilemma lies with Hixon and Marshall. I think I’d lean on Hixon because he’ll be the Giants’ big play threat and he’s produced in all three games this year he’s started while Marshall has been quite inconsistent of late. The Broncos also have a good chance of playing with a lead and if that’s the case, you’ll see the ball handed to Hillis a lot. So Boldin, Wayne for sure, and then it’s a toss up with Marshall and Hixon.

    • E-roc 12:22 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks Josh. So the quandary still exists for me between Marshall & Hixon. I might look at the weather forecast or flip a coin…. and pray that Marshall doesn’t repeat his Week 1 performance.

      I actually have Hillis as well.

      Thanks again.

    • Josh 12:26 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      No problem. Definitely check for weather as I think it’ll be cold/windy/snowy up here in NY this weekend so that could affect the passing game. However, I do think the Eagles will force Eli to beat them as Arz/Wash have done in recent weeks, so that could bode well for Hixon. Do you have three quality tailbacks so you could just go with the two receivers or is Hixon/Marshall the better options at this point?

    • E-roc 12:30 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Our league set-up requires 2 RB, 3 WR and 1 TE. We don’t have a flex position…. The forecast looks better in Denver than NY/NJ.

      I’ve been playing running back roulette all season because I failed to snag a good RB in the draft (not even a Michael Turner, Matt Forte or Chris Johnson!). I’m sitting on Slaton & Hillis with Pierre Thomas & L-Wash. I wish I had better options, but I can’t really complain with a Bye week this week.

    • Josh 1:20 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      You’re looking good for the playoffs… Keep an eye on the weather, but I see Hixon getting at least 70 yards in this game and possibly a TD. Marshall might come back but opposing teams have been focusing more attention his way and that’s why his numbers have been down of late.

    • Dave 2:14 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      I have a keeper league format question: This is our first year in the keeper league and we discover new unanticipated situations frequently.

      In our league we are able to keep 3 players from the previous draft’s rounds 1-10 (Regular Players) and 2 players from the previous drafts rounds 11-17 (Wildcard Players). FAs or Waiver Wire pickups act as your 17th round pick. Regular players are kept as 1st, 2nd, or 3rd rd picks the following year. Wildcard players are kept in the rounds you drafted them. Our regular season ended week 13.

      Owner A (did not make the playoffs) is dropping half of his team and picking up anyone and everyone he may think will serve as a Wildcard player. He currently has no defense or kicker. Many owners believe this is cheap and unfair. Do you believe setting a rule that “freezes” EVERY roster for keeper purposes at the conclusion of week 13 is appropriate? Playoffs team would still be able to make transactions but would be unable to keep new pick ups.

      Sorry for the length — I appreciate comments — Thanks!

    • Josh 2:41 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Your question is a bit confusing but I think that all keepers for the following year should come from week 13 and before. Once the playoffs begin, it’s another season and those players should be exempt from the keepers.

    • Dave 2:48 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes – without going into great detail its difficult to describe our keeper format.

      We just wanted to pass a rule that would prevent non-playoff teams from making unwarranted roster moves during the playoffs.

      I was just curious if other keeper leagues had similar rules that “froze” the rosters at a certain point during the season to prevent this problem.

      Thanks for the advice!

    • Josh 2:57 pm on December 4, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, pass a rule that week 13 is the cut-off date. That will help solve any problems.

    • Shirley 8:13 pm on December 5, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      QB: Romo or Thigpen? Even though it’s Romo, he’s playing the Steelers and so I’m leaning toward Thigpen right now.
      DEF: BAL (v. PHI) or ARI (v. STL)? The Ravens typically get more sacks and INTs than the Cardinals but the Cardinals are going up against the Rams…

    • Josh 8:31 pm on December 5, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Don’t play Romo. It looks like Barber will have to sit and Pittsburgh will destroy this offense if made one dimensional. It’ll also be 30 degrees or below.

      The defense is a bit more tricky. If Steven Jackson has a big role in the game, I don’t think the Rams will be as anemic as they’ve been. And for the Ravens, with Portis a non-factor even if he plays, they should be able to make life miserable for Campbell and the weather should be a factor too.

    • e-roc 9:37 am on December 9, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      So the correct answer was Antonio Bryant, Brandon Marshall and Anquan Boldin… Bryant went for 56 points in our league.

    • Josh 10:04 am on December 9, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      Yes, Bryant had a ridiculous game. He’s actually a solid play again as Tampa will have to pass in order to beat the Falcons on their home field.
