    Hopefully not too many of our readers wasted a waiver claim on Ronnie Brown, thinking he could have some value on the Detroit Lions! Apparently the trade was voided due to health concerns with Jerome Harrison and both guys are headed back to their former teams.

    How valuable is Ricky Williams from here on out? 

    With the news that Ronnie Brown is out for the season, the fantasy world’s eyes are focused intently on 32-year-old former Toronto Argonaut Ricky Williams tonight. And why not? Williams finds himself the only healthy skilled tailback on a team built to run the football. For the time being, the Dolphins’ only other available rusher is Lex Luthor Hilliard, who has zero career NFL carries to his name. Expect Miami to take a hard look at free agents like Edgerrin James and Dominic Rhodes in the coming weeks.

    Despite previously being behind Brown on the depth chart, Williams was already a top-15 fantasy RB, making him a rock-solid RB2. Now I think there’s little question that he’s an every-week RB1. There simply aren’t many running backs in the NFL who will touch the ball as much as he will the rest of this season, and you certainly can’t complain about the schedule: (More …)

      Who should I start? Schaub or McNabb? Thanks!

      • Matt 1:26 pm on November 19, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Schaub probably won’t repeat his week 2 line (357 yards and 4 TDs), but it’s hard to sit him against a team he dominated the last time out. I’d start him.

          That’s a tough call. The Bench humping really comes down to Driver, White, K. Smith and Driver.

          I’m gonna say bench White (who’s questionable this week and hurting) and Marshall. I’ll give K. Smith the benefit of the doubt as he has actually performed well in the matchups he should have(NO, WAS, STL). I’d look for him to do the same here.

          Honestly Marshall and Driver are roughly equal this week in my opinion. Most people prefer Marshall this week. I only picked Driver because of the matchup which is far better this week against a 29th ranked SF pass defense. In addition in his career against SF he’s put up almost 10 points per game including 2 TDS. Marshall on the other hand has put up under 8 per outing against SD in his career (7 games) including only 1 TD. I just have to go with Driver this week. White, in case you were still factoring him is facing the second best pass defense in the league and has averaged only 4FFpoints per game in his two game career against NYG. With his injury you have to avoid him.

    Hits & Misses – Week 4: Cutler to the Rescue! 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week four, 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!) This week I didn’t even have to worry about skipping the most obvious choices, as most of the top ranked players have some pretty tough match-ups (Brees/Colston vs Jets, MJD vs Titans, Brady vs Ravens, Purple Jesus vs Packers, etc), so here is your unfiltered hits and misses for the week, starting with the Savior of Chicago… (More …)

        Thomas Jones or Ahmad Bradshaw week 4?

        • Brandon 10:25 am on October 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Go with Bradshaw, who should put up some decent numbers against the Chiefs. T-Jones is too risky at this point, as you’re basically just hoping he can get a goalline carry to get you some points.

      How do you feel about Indy receivers Reggie Wayne, Pierre Garcon and Giants receivers Steve Smith and Mario Manningham. Both are facing what looks like weak defenses and should fare well. Would you pick these over Hester, Santana Moss and Sims-Walker as you recommended?

      • Brandon 3:49 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        First of all, I’m having trouble thinking of any situation where I would recommend benching a healthy Reggie Wayne. As for Garcon and the two Giants receivers, I like them (plus my “hits”) in this order:

        1) Steve Smith
        2) Santana Moss
        3) Devin Hester
        4) Mike Sims-Walker
        5) Mario Manningham
        6) Pierre Garcon

        • Brian 3:52 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          The league i’m in has only two receivers to chose. So I guess Wayne & Smith would get the start.

        • Brandon 4:19 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah I’d go with those two. While Moss, Hester and Sims-Walker have good match-ups, they aren’t as consistent as Smith has been this year, as he’s obviously established himself as Eli’s go-to guy.

        • Brian 5:09 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          My starting RBs this week are Benson and Coffee. They both going up against a week defenses of the Browns and Rams respectively. I would have gone with Portis had he not been hurt – he could have gone for close to 150 with that Bucs defense.

        • Brandon 11:35 am on October 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Portis might end up playing, but I’d stick with Benson and Coffee, who also have great match-ups.

    • Mike 9:37 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Ray Rice vs NE McFadden vs Houston who’s been horrible agianst the run, or Portis who has been hurting vs the Bucs?

      • Brandon 11:35 am on October 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Make sure to check Portis’ status on Sunday, but if he plays, he’s got a much better matchup then Ray Rice. If Portis is held out though, then it makes your decision pretty easy!

      i picked up coffee off of wavers have to drop one of the three a.bradshaw,p.thomas, or f.jackson please help

      • Brandon 10:28 am on October 3, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Whoa, do NOT drop Pierre Thomas! As for the others, Jackson probably has a little less value than Bradshaw in the long run, but both of them have more value then Glen Coffee once Frank Gore returns to action. If possible, you could drop Fred Jackson now, then when Gore comes back you pick him back up. Good luck!

    Hits & Misses – Week 1: Let the games begin! 

    With tomorrow already being opening day of the 2009-10 NFL season, it’s time for the first Hits & Misses post of the year. I’m trying a new table-based formatting this year, which should make it a little easier to distinguish between players at each position, so let me know what you think. With the Hit list, I usually try to  pick players that aren’t the most obvious, so you’ll rarely see a player with the name Adrian Peterson, Randy Moss, or Tom Brady (although I did include Drew Brees this week!) For the Misses list I try to include only players that are fantasy relevant, so while it’s probably a given that a fourth string receiver on the Raiders will  have a bad day, you won’t see his name on the list. Anyways, let’s get to the good stuff… (More …)

      So, you are telling me to bench Chris Johnson, my 1st round pick, because he is playing against Pittsburgh… That is terrible advice which will be evidenced tonight… Never sit your studs is a fantasy football maxim for a reason… Ridiculous.

      • Brandon 1:30 pm on September 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I never said to sit him, I’m just saying he doesn’t have a favorable match-up and you should temper your expectations. Maybe there is someone out there who has three solid running backs and can afford to sit him for the week though.

        In reality though, I hope both Titans running backs have a great game, because I want the Steelers to lose.

        By the way, you’ll never hear me say “never sit your studs”, as there are so many variables during an NFL season and just blindly following that saying is sometimes unreasonable.

      • Brandon 10:05 pm on September 10, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        You better step it up Mr. Johnson if you want to prove me wrong. Besides your 30 yard run, you have a whopping six carries for one yard. Probably just jinxed myself though…

      I think its a little early to count out the Cowboys chances of putting up points on a young Bucs defense. The Cowboys can spread the field and have alot of weapons at Romo’s disposal. Just the threat of Felix Jones being on the field is enough to get defenses to relax coverage on the other WR’s and TE Witten. Yes TO is gone but Felix Jones is back. The attention to TO now becomes attention to Jones which should allow Witten to flourish. If Dallas can get anything from Roy Williams this could be a very dangerous attack. I need to see it before I believe it in terms of the Bucs D. This is not the same team as years past.

      • Brandon 10:03 pm on September 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Good call on the Cowboys…I may have underestimated what this team can do without T.O. (he looked pretty awesome in the Bills/Pats game on Monday, eh?)

    Hits and Misses – Week 16: Take a ride in the PT Cruiser! 

    Of all the cars out there to get a nickname from (see: Cadillac Williams), I’m not sure I would want people calling me the name of one of the worst new vehicles to come out this century, but whatever works I guess! It apparently IS working for Saints running back Pierre Thomas, who has put up some great fantasy numbers over the past few weeks in an offense that is traditionally pass-first (and made a lot of fantasy team managers very happy in the process.) This weekend you should have the PT Cruiser parked right in the RB1 or RB2 slot on your roster when the Saints head to Detroit, helping your team cruise to a fantasy football championship!

    Hits

    • Pierre Thomas, RB, Saints: Although I recommend a few of our readers sit the PT Cruiser last week, this week my tune has changed a bit. The Saints head to Detroit on Sunday to play a Lions team that has been absolutely dreadful against the run this year, allowing 169 yards per game (4.9 ypc) to opposing tailbacks, while allowing them to rack up 26 touchdowns. With Reggie Bush out of the picture, expect a big day for Thomas.
    • Antonio Bryant, WR, Buccaneers: For all of you who snagged Antonio Bryant off the waiver wire in the middle of the season, you have to be loving your decision at this point. In most leagues, Bryant has now racked you up around 300 yards and a couple touchdowns through the first two rounds of the playoffs, and I’m predicting that he’ll continue that trend against a bad San Diego Chargers defense. You know those commercials that ESPN had for the Fantasy Football Hall of Fame? If Bryant comes through this weekend, I think you need to add him for next year’s ads. (More …)

      @brandon – I’m glad I stumbled onto the FFGeekblog when I did (week 13?), because I’ve since become the champion of my 10-team league (even though I unintentionally benched Wayne). Week 17 still counts for us in the points-race where I’m currently 3rd (top 2 get paid). Thanks for the guidance!

      @e-roc: Glad we could help you out. This is only our second year in existence, but thanks to readers like you we’ve been pretty successful so far. We’re hoping to get even better next season, so if you have any recommendations on things that would be helpful to you that we don’t currently offer, please let us know!

      Keep up the good work. I’ll let you know if I think of anything. but for now, I’m looking forward to next August and your draft insight.
