    This morning’s fantasy football updates 

    Just some updates from this morning while scanning through Google Reader…

      Hey, I’ve been monitoring the St. Louis Rams WR situation a lot recently from their camp reports, but I was wondering what your opinion was on how the landscape of their WRs will look like. Is Donnie Avery still a starter, and how will MSW fit in? What about the potential of Danario Alexander?

      • Brandon 1:55 pm on August 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        At this point the WR situation in St. Louis is a little murky. This is what the Yahoo! Rams Report says:

        “Battle Of The Week: WR Mike Sims-Walker and others for jobs. Sims-Walker is the newcomer and in a competition with several receivers for roster spots. With only six jobs likely available, the battle will be intense among Donnie Avery, Danny Amendola, Brandon Gibson(notes), Danario Alexander, Mardy Gilyard(notes), rookies Austin Pettis and Greg Salas and Dominique Curry”

        Personally, I’m pretty confident that Sims-Walker will carve out a starting job and Amendola will continue to be solid out of the slot (good for PPR leagues mostly.) As for the other starter though, it could be Avery if he gets healthy…or Alexander (also if he gets healthy) or Gibson. If you’re drafting any of these guys, they’re your WR3 at best and most likely a wait and see candidate. Hopefully it clears up a bit through the preseason games.

        Oh, and the latest news is that Mark Clayton will most likely be re-signing with the team…just to make things a little more interesting 🙂

        • Robin Palm 6:05 pm on August 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          My take is that MSW was decently productive with the JAX poo poo platter throwing to him, a good QB like bradford will be able to get him the ball. Avery is a perfect slot, while MSW is a taller threat.

        Thanks for clearing up some of my confusion guys, now I have a question regarding my fantasy squad. I am lacking a 3WR for my team which now is Jordy Nelson, who has lost his sleeper appeal since James Jones resigned. I have been eyeing some WR in my league’s Fa that I believe are potential breakout candidates. Arrelious Benn TB, Emannuel Sanders PIT, and Steve Smith/Jason Avant(mainly because of Maclin’s questionable health). Our WR spots can also be TEs too, so I have been looking at Lance Kendricks STL as well as the two TE on Baltimore, Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson. Which one of these WR/Te do you guys see as having the greatest potential for fantasy impact? Thanks once again!

        • Matt 6:03 pm on August 12, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          I like Benn and Sanders and see them both as essentially the same kind of high-risk, high-reward player. Either one is worth a shot and I can’t say that I prefer one over the other. I definitely think they’re the two best options of the players you listed.

    • LegendsFantasyLeagues 4:03 pm on August 15, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Here at Legends were definitely seeing Owen Daniels as a great TE to pick up this year. Actually here at Legendsfantasyleagues we think of him more as a Ben Coates type player. Why you ask him yourself, as you play him head to head in fantasy football!dont

    Ricky Williams to join Ray Rice in Ravens backfield 

    It didn’t take long for the Ravens to find a capable backup for their start running back. Ricky Williams will replace Willis McGahee as the change-of-pace tailback and should fit the role nicely. This does very little to temper my excitement over Ray Rice this year though and I really recommend people consider him as their pick in the first round if possible!

    Hits & Misses – Week 14: Win or Go Home! 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for the upcoming games, listing players you want to make sure are in your lineup, as well as those you might consider shelving for the week (or at least lowering your expectations!) In most leagues out there this is the first week of the playoffs, so you absolutely need to win if you want to continue your journey towards that league championship. Hopefully a few of these hit and miss suggestions will help you make those tough roster decisions and if they don’t, please feel free to leave a comment with your specific situation. Good luck!

      So I was able to land myself in 3rd place in a 10 team league so I am in the playoffs, but without a bye this week. My RB position is seriously sad and getting worse each week it seems, so I need some help.
      My roster right now looks like this

      QB Romo, Orton
      WR Colston, Smith(nyg), Meacham, Collie, Avery, Bess Floyd
      RB R. Williams, Forte, Ganther
      DEF Jets

      I am thinking Romo at QB…Colston, Smith, and Meacham for WRs and maybe Williams and Ganther for my 2 RBs…I need a flex play…last wk I played Avery over Bess which wasn’t so great, but who could predict that. I am thinking Avery again this week. Please let me know what you think of my lineup and who I should switch out if any!! Thx for all your help!!!

        Oh, I also have Evans, who I normally wouldn’t consider but he does have a good matchup in KC this week…

      • Brandon 8:36 am on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with your gut…Romo, Colston, Smith, Meachem, Williams, Ganther, Jets and Avery.

    • Trevor 9:14 pm on December 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      so i have to pick 2 RB and 1 RB/WR :
      Forte, F. Jackson, Forsett, Wells, A. Byrant, S. Morris, Buckhalter???
      its a toughie and all of your opinions will help thanks

      • Brandon 8:22 am on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not high on him this week, but I guess you’ll want to throw Matt Forte in there, along with Fred Jackson and Correll Buckhalter (and hope he has another week like last week.)

    • Brandon Walsh 4:17 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      2 of these 4 RBs: Pierre Thomas, Marion Barber, Jonathan Stewart, Laurence Maroney
      1 of these 2 TEs: Greg Olsen, Tony Gonzalez

      • Brandon 6:37 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with the PT Cruiser and Maroney. At tight end, go with Gonzo.

    • Coach Mike 4:33 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Lost both Ronnie Brown and Slaton to IR so my (pathetic) RB choices are (need two):
      Forsett, Ganther, Beanie Wells, Chris Brown, Cadillac Williams,

      Help please….and wish me luck. Thanks

      • Brandon 6:32 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Quinton Ganther and Chris Brown are probably your best bets…good luck!

    • Ron 9:24 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Please help w/ Turner likely out – need 2 from J Stew, Bell, Snelling, Buckholter. Norwood. Also pains me but I need to bench one from Calvin, Meachem and Marshall…Thanks

      • Brandon 6:31 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        At receiver, that’s a pretty tough decision, but I guess I’d bench Brandon Marshall against a solid Colts defense. In terms of your running backs, Correll Buckhalter and Jonathan Stewart are probably your best bets. Just hope that Stewart gets a touchdown and Buckhalter can take a few screen passes for solid yardage.

    • Not Barry Sanders 9:29 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      yo B…my RB sitch is a mess…started Mendenhall – lost Portis, Westbrook AND now Slaton…so I need to choose 2 + a pick a flex (I may use a WR for flex but not sure) from this mess…Moats, Buckholter, Snelling, Felix Jones, Cartwright, Lynch & Fargas. Last week I used Correl vs KC and he cam up big – Lynch has same matchup and similar situation…Thanks for your help

      • Brandon 6:23 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Wowsers that is a motley crew you have there. Depending on your receivers, you probably want one of them in the flex spot. If they’re not any good though, your top three running backs this week are probably Fargas, Buckhalter and Felix Jones (high risk, high reward.)

    • Ken 10:41 pm on December 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have Reggie Wayne, Vincent Jackson and Randy Moss for my WR. (4 team league)

      I’m considering benching Wayne and Jackson for Sidney Rice and Robert Meachem. Any thoughts on this decision?

      • Brandon 6:21 pm on December 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Tough one there, as all of them are pretty solid options. It’s hard to bench Meachem while he’s so hot right now, so I’d probably plug him in for Vincent Jackson. As for Moss and Wayne, I think you have to keep them in over Sidney Rice just because of their potential.

      It’s fairly clear that you don’t know what you’re talkin’ about.

      • Matt 9:14 am on December 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        An excellent, well-reasoned argument.

    *Checks calendar* …is it 2002? Not that I disagree with the ranking, but it's… 

    *Checks calendar* …is it 2002? Not that I disagree with the ranking, but it’s seriously weird to see Ricky Williams listed as the #2 RB for week 12 on Yahoo’s Roto Arcade. What’s next, Marshall Faulk comes out of retirement and sparks the rebirth of the Greatest Show on Turf?

    Update: How valuable is Ricky Williams from here on out? 

    A followup to yesterday’s post on Ricky, where I concluded:

    What it all boils down to is this: tonight is huge for Ricky Williams owners. Carolina’s defense is fairly representative of the kind of mediocre opponent Ricky will get to face from here on out. If he goes out there and parties like it’s 1999 (when he was 22), I think we can all agree that he’ll belong in that top tier with the rest of the elite fantasy RBs for the rest of the ‘09 season. If Carolina shuts him down, we’ll know that Ricky can’t hack it on his own, and his owners had better hope the Dolphins can find a free agent capable of doing a halfway decent Ronnie Brown impression for the rest of the season.

    22 carries for 119 yards (5.4 YPC), two rushing touchdowns, and two receptions for 19 yards and another touchdown all add up to a pretty convincing argument: Ricky’s an elite RB1 for the rest of 2009. Like I pointed out yesterday, the Dolphins are built to run the ball, and the schedule is very favorable, with zero matchups against tough run defenses until week 17 (PIT).

      Maybe you’re a little biased because you have him in one of our leagues? Just sayin’.

    • Squish 12:02 pm on November 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I bumped him up to top 10 after Ronnie Brown got put on the IR. He has more value than Ronnie Brown has ever had this year because he is the sole RB and it’s no longer a committee. With the 10th most favorable RB schedule of all RBs, and being on a run happy team, he has a chance to really put some points up. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see him finish top 5 on the year.
