    Another record season for the Patriots? 

    I don’t want to jinx them or anything, but things have already looked great for the Patriots this preseason. With a healthy Wes Welker in the fold, along with a contract-inspired Randy Moss, Julian Edelman, rookie Aaron Hernandez and healthy Brandon Tate, this passing game should be absolutely dominant. Even the rookie tight end touted for his blocking, Rob Gronkowski, racked up 38 yards and a score last night! Will Tom Brady rack up 50 touchdowns like he did in 2007? Maybe not. But he could get 49 🙂

    Obviously you’re drafting Brady, Moss, and Welker, but now I bet you see Edelman and Hernandez taken in the later rounds of most drafts…especially keeper leagues. In the leagues out there that reward for kick return yardage, Brandon Tate makes for an interesting pick as well.

    Even the running game was going on all cylinders, with the old-man-tandem of Fred Taylor and Sammy Morris combining for over 100 yards and two scores on just 17 carries! Where you draft any of their running backs is another story though. This is the ultimate running-back-by-committee situation and one you should probably stay away from unless absolutely necessary.

      Sooo….this isn’t exactly working out according to plan. There’s still time for the Pats offense to turn it around though!

    The Wire – Week 13: The Hunt for the Playoffs 

    Here are our waiver wire candidates for week thirteen. As usual, you’ll find players who are either [Startable], a [Stopgap] to get you past a BYE or injury, [Worth a look] and spot on your bench, or [One-week-wonder]s who don’t warrant a roster spot, so you make your roster moves accordingly. You’ll also see the percent owned in parenthesis. With the playoffs rapidly approaching (only one week of the regular season left in my two main leagues,) many teams out there are probably in a “must win” situation this week. Hopefully some of the players below can get you a much needed victory and give you a chance at that championship trophy (or pride, cash, whatever else you get for winning a fantasy football league.) Anyways, let’s get to the waiver wire picks for this week, starting with a few wide receivers that could help your cause… (More …)

      Wondering what you guys think about:
      – swapping Rock Cartwright for Fred Jackson (other RBs are Sjax, Wells, Forsett, Charles). I like Jackson, Rock has OAK in wk 14, but…not impressive Sunday, and unless Jackson is hurt vs TEN, probably wouldn’t start him then anyway….
      – Swapping one of my receivers (SmithNYG or Ochocinco?) for Chambers (also have Welker, Austin, SimsWalker). Now questioning whether to even start Ocho vs DET, he’s really stunk lately.
      – Which D/ST(s) are best to hold for rest of season, playoffs start wk14, can hold 2 if necessary: CIN, BAL, GB, DEN, BUF, ARI, ATL, SEA

      – we start 2 RB/WR, no flex, non ppr. Thanks, guys, your advice is always stellar.

      • Shane 6:13 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Keep Cincinatti and Green Bay on Defense.
        For this week stay in the NFC West and start Sjax and Forsett. They have both been solid lately. At WR start Austin and SimsWalker.
        Chambers wont pan out long run and FJack is more reliable moving forward. Anyone on Was is a tough start every week.

        • TJ 8:52 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks Shane, I didn’t have much faith in Rock, nice to hear it from someone else.

      • Brandon 8:38 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d grab Fred Jackson for sure, as it looks like he could get the bulk of the carries for Buffalo down the stretch. Cartwright plays for a Redskins offense that is just too terrible to rely on.

        For your receivers, I’d stick with Ochocinco and Smith and start Ochocinco this week. He just complained about the offense not passing enough and I figure that will be worth at least a few extra looks.

        Finally, for defense I agree with Shane, go with Cincinnati and Green Bay.

        • TJ 9:02 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I guess you guys don’t think much of Welkers this week…… Now do you really think Cincy’s going to actually try to pass the ball vs Detroit Lately they seem to be saving Palmer’s arm for the postseason. MSW, Austin, and Ocho all look good this week, I can start 2…

        • Brandon 9:12 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Oops, I was confused there. I thought you meant you were going to drop Ochocinco or Smith for Chambers. If you can only start two of those receivers, I’d go with Steve Smith and Mike Sims-Walker.

    • Rom3o 4:14 pm on December 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Who do you think to start this week? Laverrneous Coles,Jason Avant, or Marrio Manningham? I already got Welker and Burleson starting

      • Brandon 8:35 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Jason Avant, who should have a big day with DeSean Jackson possibly sidelined. If Jackson plays though, go with Manningham.

    • Dennis 9:52 am on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Need help have two weeks left to clinch playoffs and this week is my toughest match up. I need 3 WR, 2 RB, and 2 FLEX. Here are my players; Sims-Walker, Roddy White, Smith (NYG), Smith (Car), Crabtree, TO, Chambers, Hightower, Pierre Thomas, Norwood, and Larry Johnson.

      Please help me out. With TO finally putting up good numbers and Chambers becoming KC’s number 1, I’m not sure who to start.

      • Dennis 9:55 am on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I also have Antonio Bryant.

      • Brandon 8:43 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        At running back, go with Pierre Thomas and Jerious Norwood. For your receivers and flex, go with Mike Sims-Walker, Steve Smith (NYG), Roddy White, Michael Crabtree and take the gamble on Steve Smith (CAR). I know he was shut down last week, but he gets a match-up with Tampa Bay and even if Delhomme is out, backup Matt Moore has experience throwing to Smith and should look his way often.

    • Duncan 1:02 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I need to start two: Steve Smith (NYG), Chris Chambers, and/or Jason Avant.

      It’s tough because while Avant has been putting up reasonable numbers and has great sleeper potential with DJax out it’s hard to start him over Smith or Chambers. On the other hand, Dallas’s pass defense has stepped up over the last few weeks (not to mention Eli’s struggles) and I’m still not sold on Chambers especially against a decent defense in Denver coming off a strong game and a few extra days of rest.

      Any thoughts?

      • Brandon 8:34 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Last time the G-Men played Dallas, Smith had a huge game, so I’d leave him in there and hope he can do the same. For your other receiver, I like Jason Avant this week as it appears DeSean Jackson will sit this one out.

    • e-roc 2:00 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m sharing in Duncan’s dilemma…

      To all: would you pick up D.Bowe or Meachem in exchange for S.Smith (NYG) or Cotchery?

      • Brandon 8:32 pm on December 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Meachem is higher risk, but has a potential for higher reward over Cotchery. However, I’d stick with what you have just because Jerricho is still a number one receiver in the Jets offense. Also, what are the odds that Meachem, the teams third receiver, keeps catching touchdowns every game?! Stick with what you got.

      Hi, I would really appreciate some help….

      Steelers or Saints Defense?
      I need three: Benson, Slaton, Norwood, Pierre Thomas, Chris Brown
      I need two: Calvin Johnson, Marques Colston, Pierre Garcon, Hakeem Nicks

      Also I have Kurt Warner….if he cant play who makes for a better pickup Chris Redman, Vince Young or David Garrad?
      Thanks for the help!

      • Brandon 2:59 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with the Saints for your defense. They’ve been good and have a great match-up with a terrible Redskins offense. At running back, go with Thomas, Benson, and Norwood. For your receivers, start Calvin Johnson (as long as he’s playing, which it appears he should be at this point) and Marques Colston. Finally, for your quarterback, if Warner is a no-go, your best bet is probably Garrard against the Texans. Good luck!

        Cutler (I know it’s tough, but bear with him for at least this one week!), Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Sidney Rice (flex), Ray Rice, Rashard Mendenhall, and Antonio Gates.

        Great team (besides Cutler,) by the way.

      Hey Brandon!

      Running Short on RB’s this week due to Bernard Scott’s turf toe and Cedric Benson now playing. Should I drop him or does he still warrant a roster spot? My other RB’s are Ricky Williams and Brandon Jacobs, but I really think I need to bench Jacobs because he hasn’t done anything worth starting him so far. With Dallas as a matchup this week it isn’t worth the risk in my opinion. As far as RB’s available to pick up in my league, I have a choice between Felix Jones, Chris Brown, or Sammy Morris. I could drop Scott and pick up any of these RB’s for this week. What do you think? I need to start two RB’s Sunday and Ricky Williams will obviously be one of them.

      BTW- Thanks for the advice on picking up Avant, Meachem, and Henderson last week as well as starting Donald Driver! Started Henderson and Driver which was good, but wish I would have started Meachum too! Breaston didn’t get crap and I forgot to check if Warner was out- oops! This week I think I will start Avant, Driver, and Meachum. Do you agree?

      I won in my league last week too and beat the guy in 1st place! YEAH! Thanks!!!!

      • Brandon 2:33 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey Natalie, congrats on the victory! It’s probably safe to ditch Bernard Scott at this point. In terms of who to start at running back, he’s a bit of a risk, but I like Felix Jones. The Giants run defense isn’t that great and Jones has played very well the past few games when given the chances.

        As for your receivers, it’s hard to guess between Henderson and Meachem, but go with what you have there (Avant, Driver, and Meachem) and you should do alright.

    • Patrick 4:16 pm on December 4, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have a big week this week and team is in shambles. I have to chose a WR and a WR/RB flex option. Players to choose from are cadilac williams, rock cartwrite, pierre garcon, and donnie avery. Not sure on which two should play here. Any help is appreciated

      • Brandon 10:19 am on December 6, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go with your two wide receivers, Garcon and Avery, who have much higher potential than the other two, who will be lucky to run for 80 yards or so.

    Attention all ye 0-6 and 1-5 teams: Drop the dead weight 

    It always amazes me how quickly the fantasy football season flies by. Given that most leagues’ playoffs start in week 14, next week’s games will mark the midway point of the regular season.

    If your fantasy team is at the bottom of the standings right now, you no longer have the luxury of waiting for high-ceiling players to pan out. Painful as it may be, it’s time to plug the holes in your lineup by trading your prized prospects for players you can start right away. From this point forward, treat every week like it’s your last – because realistically, if you lose, it probably is.

    Here are a few examples of high-potential players you might be hoarding on your bench, along with some potential trades you could offer for less-exciting players who could help you right away. (More …)

      Oh I was 0-3 and clawed back to 2-3 thanks mainly to Brandon and I went down narrowly to go 2-4, I am devo’d! Megatron injury owned me! Jacobs continually hurts! I ended up going with Northcutt as my fill in WR which wasn’t bad but Breaston (who Brandon recommended) would have just about won me the game. As an Aussie Sunday 1o clock games are 3am and he was questionable so I needed a sure thing, I should have just stayed awake picked up Breaston and if he was injured quickly dropped him for Northcut! Nooooo!

      This week, my waiver D? Pats, Bears, Panthers, Cowboys?

      SO DESTROYED! Have to turn it around! Cheers guys

        • Josh from RI 2:40 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          As much as I love the Pats D/ST against TB, I totally agree with Matt on the Panthers. If you’re 2-4, make a splash and take a chance on a big return with little investment. They’re disposable after this week, so keep picking up a D/ST with the best matchup week-to-week. Save your top waiver wire claims for your most needy positions.

      • Matt 9:08 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I hate to say it, but the Panthers could be in for a big week at home against the Bills, who will be starting either a concussed Trent Edwards or an unknown commodity in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Considering that the Panthers are second only to the Giants in stopping the pass and the Buffalo o-line is as green as they come, this seems like a situation ripe for QB turnovers and sacks.

      • Brandon 10:26 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with either the Patriots or Panthers…both should do well.

      Mike Wallace
      Earl Bennet
      Ted Ginn
      Massaquoi
      Caldwell

        I like Massaquoi and Wallace, although I’m not sure I’d start either over Garcon this week against the Rams. Go for Massaquoi and hope Derek Anderson doesn’t have another 2 completion day!

          Waivers went out before this I missed Wallace and Got Earl Bennet but Massaquoi still available, god Anderson better not dud it up again. I might be able to sneak a trade with house mate who has benched
          Donnie Avery
          Michael Crabtree

    • Brad 11:52 pm on October 20, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Another 2-4 team like me wants to trade a WR for an RB. In 9-deep bench/12-team league, I have DeAngelo Williams, Moreno, R Rice, J Stewart and K Smith at RB (my best WRs are Driver, Bowe and S Smith-Car); he has Ocho, Andre Johnson, Jennings, A Gates (only good RB Barber). Who can I get for Williams? Who can I get for Rice? We have a flex WR/RB slot so he’s okay with just Barber.

      You guys rock! Thanks.

      • Matt 9:13 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t trade DeAngelo Williams straight up for any of those WRs, even though I’m a big Andre Johnson fan; there would need to be some sort of package deal involved. As for Rice, you should be able to get Ochocinco or Jennings for him (I’d prefer Ocho).

        • Squish 6:59 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, Jennings or the Ocho for rice is reasonable. Try trading Kevin Smith for one of the two and you’ll get a major upgrade to your team.

    • Ken 12:33 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m 5 – 1 and 1 – 5 in my fantasy teams heh. For my crap team, would you suggest going for a big trade to try and salvage, or you think I can get by on my WR’s.

      QB
      Warner
      Cutler

      WR
      Fitzgerald
      Jennings
      Sims-Walker
      Breaston
      Hester
      Knox
      Hakeem Nicks

      RB
      Leon Washington
      Mike Bell
      Sammy Morris (waiting for the word on wednesday to drop him)
      Jamal Lewis

      TE
      Finley

      K
      Keading

      DEf
      NYJ

      Im hoping Ive beefed up my Receiver set enough to stay competitive and start winning, but you think I should try and pitch a big guy like fitzgerald for a number 1 RB if possible? Or perhaps a sims-walker for a number 2 back?

      Thanks!

      • Brandon 10:35 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would definitely try to upgrade at the running back position, as you’re in dire need of some help there, while you’re stacked at WR. Hakeem Nicks should be solid for the rest of the year. You might package Sims-Walker and Hester or something for a good running back.

        • Amir 4:30 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I’m actually more of a fan of trading a Fitzgerald. He’s the biggest WR name you have out there and in many fantasy leagues the fact that hes Larry Fitzgerald and was drafted so early will get you the most value in terms of a trade

          Haha just my train of thought

        • Ken 4:35 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          yea thats exactly what I was thinking. Either trade Fitzgerald 1 to 1 for a solid #1 back, or sims and hester or sims and knox for a decent back. Thanks guys

    • Mal 12:40 am on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      i’d rank those WR

      Andre
      Ocho
      Gates
      Jennings

      However the first 3 are relatively effective where as Jennings is kind of stinking it up, so he should have the least trade value. Obviously you should try get what you can for williams in that order but with jennings being the most realistic. You probably already knew that though 🙂

      Need a good WR, I’ve got C Johnson, Hester, Maclin, Gonzales, Cotchery, and Kenny Britt. Available are: Mike Wallce, Torry Holt, Steve Breaston, Mark Clayton, Jacoby Jones, and George Wilson..(of the upper stats anyway). What do you guys think? I’m 2-4 now and playing in a pretty evenly matched league. Around a 100 overall points difference between best and worst teams.

      I am hurting on bye’s this week…. Mccoy has been sitting my bench the season. However, I have to play him this week b/c bye’s. Should I suck it up and play him or try and pick up: F. Jackson, M. Bell, J. Harrison, J. Fargas. K. Faulk and hope for more points?

      • Matt 4:37 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        McCoy’s not a good pick this week and if you can plug someone else in, you should. Most of the guys you named have a better shot of doing something in their games. Jackson could be a sleeper – I like both Buffalo backs this week as the Bills will probably try and run the ball as much as they can, given Carolina’s excellent pass defense and their shaky QB situation. He’s the best bet of the guys you named.

    • John 12:04 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      What is the outlook of Greg Jennings? especially with the influence of Donald Driver.

      I have MJD and MSW, and since I don’t want a RB and WR from same team, I’m thinking about trading MSW for Jennings? Is that a good trade based on Jennings’s future production?

      • Matt 4:44 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        MSW… MSW… took me forever to figure out that you meant Mike Sims-Walker. Shouldn’t a guy have to be on the scene longer than a few nanoseconds before he gets his own acronym? 🙂

        Tough call on that trade – I’d probably hold on to the guy you’ve got; Jennings is a question mark right now and Sims-Walker is suddenly the focal point of his team’s offense. Why don’t you want a RB and WR on the same team? There’s nothing wrong with that, generally speaking.

      • Squish 12:01 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d stand pat. You may be able to get Jennings for cheaper within the next few weeks and there is definitely nothing wrong with owning players from the same team. In fact, it generally makes the team as a whole more consistent which is a good thing.

      Given the match up that NE has i would not trade RM. And what do you all think? Breaston over Nicks for week 7? I don’t like the matchup that Breaston has. Going against NYG that is ranked number 1 in YPG or Nicks that is going against Arizon that is ranked 31 in passsing. i dont like that Nicks is in a time share with Manningham tho. What do you think?

      • Glory Hog 2:38 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Manningham is hurting a bit, so Nicks is a good start against AZ in my opinion.

        If i’m going to trade Moss for a RB I have to do it this week because the guy offering Mendenhall is screwed with byes and is desperate. I agree Moss will be huge this week, but is it worth getting Mendenhall as my RB2 with Gore since I my WR should be good with A. Johnson, Celek, Mason?

      Hey guys,
      I have a close matchup this week and my receivers are either going to make or break this matchup

      I have Driver, Smith (Car), Crabtree, Moore

      Which two make the most sense to start?
      Is Crabtree in for a breakout first game?

        I think there’s hope for this team. You might test the waters with Forte and see if you can package him into a deal for a RB who has been a more consistent performer – there may be an owner in your league willing to take a risk on him.

      Is it too early to trade away matt forte?

      • Amir 11:27 pm on October 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        depends on what you get for him — his value is pretty low now to be honest — what are you thinking of getting for him?

      • Matt 8:31 am on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Also depends how much risk you’re willing to take. See my response to CT above – Forte is a high-risk, high-potential player right now, with the risk being that the Bears might not figure out a way to run the ball effectively all season.

      • Matt 8:35 am on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d make that trade. Ray Rice is quickly turning into a stud, and Welker’s going to be a monster now that Brady’s throwing the ball well again.

      Who else is in the WR tier that Mike Sims Walker is in? like what other WRs could I trade for him?

      Also, how is Deangelo Williams looking? Could I trade MSW for him?

    The Wire – Week 6: Week of the Wide Receiver 

    Here are our waiver wire candidates going into week six. As usual, you’ll find players who are either [Startable], a [Stopgap] to get you past a BYE or injury, [Worth a look] and spot on your bench, or [One-week-wonder]s who don’t warrant a roster spot, so you make your roster moves accordingly. You’ll also see the percent owned in parenthesis (and if you see an asterisk by the players name, it means they’re on a BYE this week.) We begin with a whole slew of wide receivers, a few of which racked up some serious stats (Miles Austin, Austin Collie, Jeremy Maclin) this past weekend.

    UPDATE: Added Chad Henne to the list (Oct-13) (More …)

      I love your waiver reports! It’s like anyone I can possibly think of and 20 more have their own description here!

      I’m an Andre Caldwell owner and quite honestly I don’t think he’s worth a look unless you’re in a league with return yardage. Eventually his TD streak will end and when it does, so will his fantasy viability. That being said, I’ve looked like a genius playing him the last two weeks in a return yardage league. Now that my main bye weeks are passed, I don’t see him getting the start on my team again anytime soon.

    • ffgeekblogROCKS 12:04 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Matt, Brandon, you guys are awesome! Would you guys trade your Tony Throw-mo and Ronnie Brown for Philip Rivers and Deangelo Williams, or has the ship sailed on Carolina RB? We play in a standard Yahoo league and my other RBs are Chris Johnson, LJ, and Bradshaw. Thanks in advance for the advice!

      • Brandon 11:25 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although you’d be upgrading at the quarterback position, I can’t recommend trading away Ronnie Brown, even if it’s for a guy who’s preseason rank was a bit higher. Brown looks great running in the wildcat offense and is racking up touchdowns like Williams did last year. I’d keep Romo and Brown and hope that the Romo-to-Miles Austin connection is for real and his stats improve from here on out.

      should i trade my calvin johnson and pierre garcon for randy moss and mark clayton? my wr1 is andre johnson and have devery henderson and eddie royal on the bench. i need your psychic powers!

      • Brandon 11:33 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Stick with Megatron and Garcon, as you’d basically be trading both for Randy Moss (Clayton seems like a throw in to make the numbers work.) Johnson’s injury doesn’t appear to be anything serious and Garcon’s potential makes him more valuable than Clayton. So far this season, opposing teams have been doubling up on Moss in a big way and his numbers are suffering.

    • Shirley 8:24 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I know you said not to give up on Massaquoi but I need a win. Currently my WRs are Pierre Garcon (BYE), Derrick Mason, Roddy White, Mohamed Massaquoi, and Mario Manningham.
      Miles Austin, Austin Collie, Jeremy Maclin, Andrew Caldwell, Torry Holt, and Josh Morgan are some of the guys available on the waiver wire.
      I’m thinking about dropping Massaquoi for Maclin. Thoughts?

      • Brandon 11:41 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        It’s tough with a lot of these guys, because they’ve all (Massaquoi, Austin, Collie, Garcon, Maclin) had one or two break out games. I still like Massaquoi and last weeks stats shouldn’t scare you off this soon. Cleveland was playing in very windy conditions and Derek Anderson had the worst game of his career. This week the ship should right itself somewhat and I think he still has value. You might drop Garcon this week if you’re looking to start one of those guys, as he’s on a BYE and would be available next week most likely if you wanted to pick him up again. Maclin is going to be very hit or miss this season, so if you’re up for the mood swings, feel free to grab him and drop Garcon. In the long term, Collie might have a bit more value than Garcon as he seems more consistent, so if you just want to swap players on a BYE, you might consider that. Did any of that make sense?

    • Mal 11:21 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Yet another bit of advice I seek from you legends….

      OK, I play NFL.com fantasy and require 3 WR to start each week

      I have 5 (bye week)
      C Johnson (7)
      B Marshall (7)
      R Williams (6)
      M Sims Walker (7)
      K Britt (7)

      My problem is pretty easy to see. I only have 5 bench spots and atm they belong to 2 WR, 2 RB (Bradshaw + Hightower) and a TE (J Finley/T Heap).

      I can try ride out week 7 by playing Williams + dropping K Britt (7) picking up someone off the waivers, ditching my TE reserve and picking up someone off the waivers. OR I will have to consider trading at least one of my big guys away. Jennings is a top WR who hasn’t been scoring too well maybe try for someone like him? What do you guys think and if you think try a trade what WR do you like? Keeping in mind the people offered trades are usually sceptical they are getting screwed over. Thanks once again guys!

      • Brandon 11:45 am on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Orchestrating a successful trade is one of the toughest parts of fantasy football, but if possible, Greg Jennings makes a great buy low candidate. I’d definitely drop Britt and pick up someone off waivers if there are decent offerings there. Keep Megatron and Brandon Marshall and consider trading Mike Sims-Walker (who I’m pretty sure has reached his potential in the Jacksonville offense) or Britt if anyone wants him. Maybe package Sims-Walker and Britt for Jennings? Hopefully this helps.

      • Squish 4:16 pm on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I second what Brandon said.

        Though I also have Roy Williams on a few teams and I’ve been contemplating dropping him for Miles Austin. Seems risky but I don’t see Williams having too big an upside whereas Austin has a ton. Thoughts?

      • Mal 6:45 pm on October 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have Britt for Maclin and Britt for Caldwell as pending waiver transactions. However, someone did accept my trade of Britt for Garcon, so the question is should I cancel my pending waiver transactions?

        Colts have a great match up wk 7 vs the Rams, although with that in mind they also did this week vs the titans to which garcon saw no action. Anthony Gonzalez is also on the waiver, perhaps I should try pick him up, however if he’s not ready for wk7 I’m in trouble, thoughts? Cheers!

        • Brandon 8:43 am on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I think long term Maclin should have the most value out of the bunch. However, since the trade was already accepted, can you still back out of it?

      First off, to the Geeks, sorry I’ve been MIA. Corporate America has blocked me from the Fantasy Football world, but specifically your website. “Games” are not allowed.

      Secondarily. I’m playing WR5 roulette between Nate Washington and potentially Avery or Maclin. Avery is explosive enough to score some points and STL has some decent match-ups later this season.

      On the RB front, I was screwed by a Cleveland Brownie (surprised??) as I dropped Bradshaw (went for 40+ in our league) for Harrison (went for 1.6). You do the math.

      Keep up the good work!

      • Brandon 8:46 am on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Good to have you back E-roc! How doe they know FFGeekBlog.com is associated with “games”?

        Anyways, I like Jeremy Maclin out of the group of receivers you mention there. Avery plays for an offense that is terrible and it’s hard for me to get excited about him.

        For your running back, that’s rough about Bradshaw. Who knew he’d get his first touchdowns of the year AND Jamal Lewis would make his glorious return to the gridiron in the same week! Can you scoop Bradshaw back up off waivers/free agency?

    • Hatch 12:13 am on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I need a Plug n Play TE this week to take Witten’s spot in my lineup… Available TE’s are Watson, Pettigrew, Scheffler, Rosario, Z. Miller, Donald Lee and Scaife. It is a TD heavy league. My first thought is Watson due to NE seeming to like him near the redzone, but I think Pettigrew may have a huge week against the Packers if Calvin Johnson is out. Any Suggestions??

      • Brandon 8:48 am on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Pettigrew hasn’t done enough this year so far to convince me that he’s a viable fantasy starter. Go with Ben Watson and hope Brady finds him in the endzone this week against a week Titans secondary.

      If you were in a standard fantasy league with 11-man rosters, and you had a terrible WR situation (Nate Burleson, Santonio Holmes, and Terrell Owens) and someone in your league just dropped Ravens S/T, would you drop T.O. in favor of the Ravens S/T?

      • Brandon 11:27 am on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I didn’t know J-Lo was into fantasy football…I guess her purchase of a stake in the Dolphins has really got her into the sport! Anyways, I’m not ready to give up on T.O. just yet, as there are rumors that he could be traded before the deadline at the end of the week. The Ravens defense/special teams unit hasn’t been good this year, but not good enough to warrant this type of move.

      • Brandon 3:34 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Seems like a fairly even trade, but it all depends on the situation (i.e. what WR/RB each team has)

    • bryan 1:39 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      im having a hard time deciding what WRs to start this week. I need to play 3. I have Greg Jennings, Santana Moss, Braylon Edwards, Nate Burleson and Mike Sims-Walker. Which 3 should I start?

      • Brandon 3:33 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Greg Jennings (vs DET), Santana Moss (vs KC) and Mike Sims-Walker (vs STL) have the best match-ups. However, the Jets will most likely be without Jericho Cotchery this weekend, meaning lots of looks for Braylon Edwards. I’d still start Jennings, Moss and Sims-Walker though and hope all of them do well so you don’t regret benching anyone!

    • Scotty 3:10 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I realize the uncertainty surrounding the RB picture in Cleveland, Dallas & (to a lesser extent) Carolina. However, I desperately need to pick-up a RB….& I was wondering which of the following RB’s you believe will put up the best stats through the remainder of the season:

      Jerome Harrison
      Felix Jones
      Jonathan Stewart

      Thanks for all your great advice!

      • Brandon 3:26 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        With Jamal Lewis back in the picture, Harrison has very little value as it was hard enough when Lewis was out to put up stats in such a bad offense. As for the other two, they’ve both struggled through injuries this season and neither is the starter in their offense even when healthy. However, I think Felix Jones has the most value when he actually plays, as he gets plenty of carries in relief of Marion Barber and I have more hope that the Cowboys offense will improve than the Panthers. Tashard Choice’s role in the offense scares me slightly if Dallas goes the way of a three-headed monster, but I still like Felix Jones more than Harrison or Stewart.

      I start 2 rbs and a flex, should I waive Mewelde Moore for Shonn Greene? I have $1 left for free agents so this would be my final move. My other rbs are: Gore, Coffee, Michael Bush, Harrison, Mike Bell.

      • Brandon 8:41 am on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t waste your final $1 for Shonn Greene, who I see having very little fantasy impact this season (unless Thomas Jones got hurt.) Keep your money for another week when a more interesting free agent appears.

    • Jim 8:21 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      ok im in kind of a bind here i need to start 3 WRs but dont know which to choose. the candidates are:
      Santana Moss
      Brandon Marshal
      Hakeem Nicks
      Steve Breaston
      and Megatron(but hes “hurt”)

      and also would you drop any of those for Sidney Rice?

      • Brandon 8:39 am on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d think about dropping Steve Breaston for Sidney Rice, just because Rice seems to find the endzone more often, but don’t do it this week (Breaston has a better match-up.) When Calvin Johnson is healthy, you’ll be starting him, Moss and Marshall anyways, so it’s just a matter of bench players. This week go with Moss, Marshall and if you’re feeling risky, take a gamble on Hakeem Nicks and hope he finds the endzone for a third straight week. If you’re more conservative, go with Breaston.

    • Andrew 8:32 pm on October 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Start Philip RIvers or Kyle Orton?

      • Brandon 8:32 am on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t have expected to say this at the start of the season, but I’d start Kyle Orton. The Broncos passing game has been improving and their defense was good enough to limit Tom Brady last week, so I’m thinking it might do the same against Rivers.

    • Farve$FootLong 1:39 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’m in a league that really devalues RB’s(one point for every 25 yards compared to receivers one point for every 10 yards). So I have had to really stock up and load up my team with wide outs.

      My question is- Is my wideout postion strong enough?(i have Schaub, MJD, A. Gates at the other postions so i feel good there)

      Wide Receivers:
      Roddy White
      Anquan Boldin
      Nate Burelson
      Sidney Rice
      Pierre Garcon
      Donny Avery

      And who would you start this week??

      • Brandon 8:25 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That group doesn’t look too bad if it’s a 12 team league or something. As far as who to start this week, I’d go with your top three guys there (White, Boldin and Burleson.) Nate Burleson has a great match-up this week against the Cardinals, who have been pretty bad against the pass, while Boldin and White are just much better options over the rest of your crew…even with mediocre match-ups.

    Hits and Misses – Week 12: Peyton ready for a playoff run 

    Although the Patriots lost a close one to the Jets, last week ended up being a pretty good week for me in all areas of the fantasy football world. Not only did I win in nearly all of my leagues, but my predictions ended up with a stellar 19-4-5 record, led by great games from Turner the Burner, the Arizona passing game and DeAngelo Williams, along with sub-par efforts from Kyle Orton and Willis McGahee (even with Jake Delhomme doing his best to submarine me and one of my fantasy teams!)

    With the playoffs fast approaching though, and me still needing a win or two more to clinch the playoffs in a few leagues, let’s move on to my picks for this week. I’ll start with the man who should help many a fantasy team make the playoffs in week 12 by handing out a good ol’ fashioned beatdown to San Diego…Peyton Manning.

    Hits

    • Peyton Manning, QB, Colts: This weekend Indianapolis will head to San Diego to take on a Chargers defense that has been one of the worst in the league against the pass (possibly due to the absence of their top pass rusher in Shawne Merriman?) For all those managers who drafted Manning with a top pick in their league and have been disappointed so far (although the past few weeks he’s been pretty good), this game should serve as redemption. The Chargers are allowing 267 passing yards on average to an assortment of signal callers across the league…and this weekend they take on one that is slightly better than your “average quarterback.” I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect 300 yards and at least two scores from Peyton this week.
