    Hits & Misses – Week 10: Thursday Night Football Edition 

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, make sure to check your rosters before the game tonight so that you don’t get screwed with a starter on your bench (or even worse if there are leagues out there that lock rosters after the first game of the week starts!) Anyways, I wanted to get this post out with time to spare before game-time tonight in case any of the 49ers or Bears players made the list. Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week ten, 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!) (More …)

      One note of caution on Favre – the groin injury I discuss here.

      • Brandon 4:25 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        All reports I’ve seen say he should be fine, but it’s always a good idea to watch these situations all the way until game day.

        • Amir 4:30 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          hes good to play — active game streak — unless his arm or leg actually fell off hell play — come on boys your better than that!

        • Matt 4:39 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          My fear isn’t that he won’t play, it’s that he’ll do exactly what he did last year – play through an injury that slowly ruins his performance.

      • Colin 8:48 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        So I have both Brett Favre and Tom Brady on my FF team. Farve looks like the better match-up this week but Im worried that the Vikings will stomp all over the Lions early thus taking Farve out of the game early. Brady will be playing all game but a very tough game…. What should I do?!

        • Squish 9:16 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Go with Brady. Why waste one of your studs? Favre may have performed well so far but there is no way he can be deemed on the level of Brady. You know Brady will toss a few tDs no matter who he’s playing so play him for sure.

    • Anthony 5:47 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Which 2 WRs should I start, Mike Sims Walker, Devin Hester, Santana Moss, or Robert Meachem?

      • Brandon 5:50 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although Sims-Walker has a tough match-up, go with him and Devin Hester. Moss made my “Miss” list this week and Meachem is too risky.

        • Squish 8:04 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Agreed. If Hester can still play the way he did last week injured then he’s a legitimate fantasy WR now. I learned the consequences of benching MSW last week. Don’t make yourself go through that Anthony.

    • Jonathan 8:27 pm on November 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      In a debacle this week. Should I start: Which one?

      Austin Collie-Colts WR vs. New England
      Devery Henderson-Saints WR vs. Rams

      • Brandon 10:03 am on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Henderson for sure. Better match-up and he’s been solid the past few games.

    • Scotty 5:11 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon, I’m in a PPR leauge & I’m wondering who I should start: Kevin Smith vs. Minn or Lesean McCoy vs. SD? Minn def is stout & will be rested coming off a bye; however, Smith will undoubtedly get the lion’s share of touches (& he performed ok against Minn earlier this season). Whereas McCoy has an easier matchup, he will be sharing time with Westbrook, according to Andy Reid. What do you think?

      • Brandon 5:31 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Even with Kevin Smith getting “the lion’s share” (pun intended), I still like LeSean McCoy against a suspect Chargers run defense. There’s still a chance Brian Westbrook doesn’t play, so McCoy would be a definite start in that case.

    • Jojo 6:38 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      OK. I have Cutler and only him…moment of silence please. On the waiver my choices are limited moving forward. Sanchez, Freeman, T. Edwards, and J. Campbell. Which one is the best pick moving forward for possible matchup play??

      • Brandon 10:13 pm on November 13, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Let’s not go too crazy on thinking Jay Cutler is a lost cause…just two games ago he threw for 369 yards and three touchdowns against the Cardinals (although a lot was in garbage time I guess.) Either way, none of those QB’s you’ve listed strike my fancy, but if I had to pick any of them right now I’d say Mark Sanchez. Josh Freeman is a wildcard though. Watch him over the next game or so and see what kind of numbers he puts up.

    • Ken 1:25 am on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Normally a no brainer but seeing the numbers guys like Randy moss and Andre Johnson put up against the jets I’m worried about starting simswalker.

      You like msw or breaston better this week? I’m leaning tiwards breaston but a second opinion always helps.

      Thanks!

      • Squish 7:08 am on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I can answer the question for everyone on this board I think. Brandon and Mike will definitely say go with MSW despite his poor matchup. I am more or less in agreement with them. But, I will go out on a limb and say that if Boldin is out this week, Breaston should be the better play this week for sure.

    • Ken 9:23 am on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks squish. Yea, I mean the cardinals usually score well against seatle and breaston pulled in 17 points in my ppr league last time. But i got this nagging feeling that’s not going to happen again. I think seatle’s def is gonna step up a bit this week.

      But man, the only time I saw Revis eff up was his booboo against ted ginn in miami’s Jet’s first match. Otherwise he’s shut down every receiver, and I doubt MSW is gonna be amy dif. So its a tough call.

      • Brandon 1:29 pm on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hah, Squish called me out I guess…and he’s right. Although Sims-Walker’s good games this season have all come at the expense of less-than-spectacular defenses, I can’t recommend you bench him for the likes of Steve Breaston. I’m not necessarily a “never bench your start player” kind of guy, but in this case, I wouldn’t bench your star guy. 🙂

    • Jojo 2:52 pm on November 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      If D. Williams is out this weekend, who is the better play J. Stewart or Mendenhall?

      • Squish 12:05 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        If Williams is out I think Mendenthal is the better option. Carolina is facing a reasonable defense and Stewart really hasn’t looked good all season plus he’s been on the injury list for a majority of it. Mendenthal is clearly now the primary carrier in PIT and they’ll use him plenty against a Cincinatti team who’s DL is still hurting from the loss of Odom. Look for Pittsburgh’s OL to establish themselves early and often. Even if Mendenthal doesn’t get a big load of carries, he’ll do plenty with what he does get. I think you can count on at least a couple long runs by him and like a TD or two.

      • Brandon 11:26 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have to disagree with Squish here. If DeAngelo Williams is out, Stewart makes a great play against the Falcons. Minus his last game (against a tough Saints defense), he was running the ball pretty well and the last time he played the Falcons, he had a 7.2 ypc average on nine carries. I’d go with Stewart (IF DeAngelo Williams is out that is :-))

    • Brian 1:24 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon,
      I’ve been waffling back and forth (just call me Favre) about which QB to start. I’ve got Flacco with a great matchup or the always consistent Rivers with a not so great matchup against Philly. What do you think?

      • Squish 1:46 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Rivers this week better than Flacco despite the matchup differences. All my most accurate sources have Rivers slightly ahead as well. The going consensus is that Baltimore won’t have to pass much against the Browns and because of that the great passing game matchup is more or less superficial. Rivers on the other hand will likely have to pass often in the competitive game he’s playing in and thus should accrue more fantasy points.

      • Brandon 11:28 am on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Squish on this one. There are very few match-ups now where you would start Flacco over Rivers. Rivers’ upside is just too high with the weapons he has at his disposal.

        • Brian 12:57 pm on November 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thank you both of you. Well articulated and sound reasoning. Looks like i’m going with Rivers!

    Hits & Misses – Week 7: New England heads to Old England 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week seven, 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’ve again tried to leave off the most obvious picks, such as Peyton Manning’s dream match-up against the Rams, so that the list only includes players you may have been scratching your head about starting this week. Also, not to get too far off topic, but the Patriots head to London this week to play the Buccaneers, which got me thinking…is the team name “New England Patriots” offensive to the British? I mean, they ARE the nation that we were being patriots against in the first place! Anyways, I guess we’ll let some of our readers from the U.K. comment on that, so let’s get into the hits and misses for the week… (More …)

      I have Marshall & MSW on bye this week, so Steve Smith (CAR), Collie, and Coles have to start. On TE, Carlson is on bye, and I have McMichael. Should I address TE (V Davis or Sean Ryan) or WR (Miles Austin, Nicks, or L Moore) from the waiver wire this week? Thanks!!

      • meany1413 1:45 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I would say stick with McMichael at TE. You might wanna pick up Austin considering he has got the starting job over Crayton now. Moore be a good backup option though.

      • Brandon 3:37 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d grab Vernon Davis at tight end and honestly, those waiver wire receivers look more appealing than two of your three current options. I like Austin, Nicks AND Moore more than Collie and Coles. If possible, I’d start Steve Smith, Hakeem Nicks and Lance Moore at wide receiver.

      • e-roc 3:38 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        @Stediberto – I’m sitting Steve Smith (CAR) in favor of Nicks this week (and possibly going forward). I encourage you to do the same. Nicks has a competent QB… Delhomme is as good as Akili Smith right now.

        I’d start the guys in this order: Marion Barber, Steven Jackson, Tashard Choice, Reggie Bush, depending on how many spots you need to fill.

        Go with DeAngelo Williams and Ronnie Brown as your RB’s, then Fitzgerald and Ochocinco at WR. It’s tough to bench Jennings, but the other two are just playing better football at the moment and have decent match-ups.

        I like Donald Driver more simply based on the match-up. Sidney Rice is not likely to repeat last weeks crazy numbers against the Steelers this week.

        Devin Hester…but Hakeem Nicks is a close second. If your team awards points for return yards, then Knox becomes an option, but otherwise go with Hester.

    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 …)

        • 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.

    • Brian 3:38 pm on October 1, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      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!

        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!

    Ask the Geeks: Week 3 

    If I thought the mailbox was overflowing before, this week I’d have to say it exploded. I guess sometimes advertising works! Anyways, let’s get to the questions we’ve received so far this week and hopefully get your teams prepared for a big week three. As I did in one of last week’s posts, I broke up the questions into two categories: “Lineup Suggestions” and “Roster Moves.” Remember to send any inquiries you may have to us here.

    Lineup Suggestions

    Anthony asks…

    Is Santana Moss ever going to put up some decent fantasy points? I was thinking he would in week 2 against St. Louis, but he didn’t. This week it’s Detroit, and I don’t know if he will do well. Should I start him for week 3 or another player: Devin Hester, Davone Bess, Mike Sims-Walker, Chansi Stuckey, or Laurent Robinson.

      Here’s a few for you…1. I have R. Rice & Willis McGahee (luckily grabbed them both in my draft). I’m leaning towards putting Rice on the bench this week and playing McGahee…thoughts? My other RBs are Steven Jackson and McFadden who I think will both have a solid week 3. 2. I picked up Brent Celek on the waiver and was going to plug and play over Kellen Winslow…you like that move?

      • Brandon 11:19 am on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have Rice and McGahee on one of my teams as well and I’m starting McGahee this week over Rice, so you know how I feel. As for your tight end, I’d keep Winslow in there. He’s obviously one of Leftwich’s favorite targets with 12 catches and two scores over the first two games. Keep Celek on your roster as a backup though if you have the space.

    • E-roc 10:27 am on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon – ironically, I picked up Bush before I read this… Now this question Kevin Smith v. crappy Washington team or Bush v. Bills? I think Bush….

      • Brandon 11:17 am on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        While Washington is indeed crappy, I think it’s their offense that is the worst…not so much their defense. Go with Reggie Bush, as he’s always a treat to score a touchdown via a short pass or long run.

    • Shirley 2:37 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have Zach Miller (OAK) in a PPR league. He was pretty good week 1 but dismal due to JaMarcus Russell’s poor performance last week.
      Should I pick up any of these guys to replace Miller? Mercedes Lewis, Heath Miller, Jerramy Stevens, Robert Royal, Kellen Davis, Jermichael Finley, Alge Crumpler, and Shawn Nelson.

      • Brandon 2:57 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Shirley, I think what you saw last week with Miller was an anomaly. Usually he’s Russell’s favorite target and should put up better numbers than the rest of those guys over the course of the season.

      I’m in a 14 team PPR league that starts three WR and two RB.

      No team is very deep, and usually owners are starting backup RBs.
      I’m up against a guy running SMITH, and L. Washington. I want to match his production at RB.

      I have C. Johnson in as my must start. After that I have WARD, BUCKHALTER, D. BROWN, or J FORSETT.

      I’m stumped.

        I like Derrick Ward this week, playing a Giants team that was run over by the Cowboys running backs last weekend. The rest of the guys have too many question marks at this point.

    • Steve 3:59 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Eddie Royal hasn’t been putting up the number I would like to see and Steve Smith (NYG) has been looking like Eli’s go to guy. For week 3 do you think I should play Royal (against Oakland) or Steve Smith (against Tampa Bay)? Right now I am leaning towards Smith.

      • Brandon 4:09 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Steve Smith until Eddie Royal can establish some sort of connection with Kyle Orton and even then, Smith is probably the better play if he keeps up his current production.

    • Mike 4:44 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I need to decide on my RB2 and Flex for this week. My options are Cedric Benson, Derrick Ward, Ahmad Bradshaw, Johnny Knox, Josh Morgan and Mike Sims-Walker (really deep league as you can tell). I’m leaning towards starting Benson at RB2 despite the tough matchup just because he will definitely get 20+ carries. I think at Flex I’ve narrowed it down to Ward and Bradshaw. What do you think?

      • Brandon 10:09 pm on September 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Benson and then play Derrick Ward as your Flex spot as he’s more likely to get a good number of carries than Bradshaw.

      First of all, thanks for en excellent blog and your excellent ressources, which I use quite a lot 🙂

      In my touchdown heavy 10 team league I have just received a trade proposal:
      I get: Greg Olsen and Marques Colston
      I give: Antonio Gates and Ahman Bradshaw

      I am somewhat inclined to accept the trade, but I have a pretty strong roster, so I am afraid that I will loose more at the TE position, then I will gain by having another WR (already have Vincent Jackson, Randy Moss and Andre Johnson).

      Tough one, what do the geeks have to say? 🙂

      • Brandon 11:42 am on September 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That is a tough one. I love the idea of having Moss, AJ and Colston, as it’s an unstoppable WR corps, but I think the downgrade you will suffer at the tight end position is a bit worse than your upgrade at the wide receiver position:

        Gates – Olsen > Colston – Jackson

        I think Olsen will end up doing alright this year, but he’s not putting up serviceable fantasy numbers right now. I’d turn down the trade unless you can get a good tight end off free agency or something (Celek, etc) Good luck!

    • Ken 12:08 pm on September 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Thanks for the help guys.

      Ive got a receiver dillemma. I’m in a deep leaague: my running game is weak with leon washington and jamal lewis so I’m trying to make the most out of my recievers. My two main starters are Fitzgeral and Jennings. Then I have these four to play around with from week to week:

      Devin Hester
      Chancy Stuckey
      Simms-Walker
      Isaac Bruce

      Which two do you like for this week? Im guessing Hester would be one from your answers above.

      Also, Donnie Avery and Nate Washington are available for pickup as FA. Would you suggest picking up either of those and dropping one of the four I just mentioned?

      Thanks guys

        For receivers, I like Boldin and Cotchery, as I think the Patriots will shut down Roddy White. For running backs, go with Felix Jones and Michael Turner. For quarterback, I’d go with Flacco, as Cutler has a hard matchup this actually on my “Miss” list this week. Good luck!

      I need to fill in one WR and one flex position, What do you suggest? WR options are Santonio Holmes, Hines ward and Wes Welker. RB options are Steve Slaton, Derrick Ward and LeSean McCoy

        Holmes no doubt.

        I’d go with Santonio Holmes and Wes Welker, especially if Randy Moss doesn’t play this week. It’s crazy that you have to sit Slaton, but he just hasn’t done anything at all this year yet and it’s hard to keep him in your lineup at this point.

      Funny enough I need to restate my question as lots of news has come out.

      I had posted Sproles, Rice, Thomas, Buckhalter and the recommendation was Sproles and Rice.

      Now these two tidbits come out:
      Thomas close to 100%:
      When asked if Hamilton will take over Bell’s role in the offense, Saints head coach Sean Payton said, “I don’t think that’s accurate.” But he was evasive when asked specifically how the rushing touches will be divided between Hamilton, Thomas and Reggie Bush.

      Moreno listed as questionable:

      Sproles is still a given. But I think that both Thomas and Buckhalter have leapfrogged Rice, at least for this weekend.

      So, Thomas vs Buffalo or Buckhalter vs. Oakland.

      Gotta say, leaning Buckhalter at this stage of the game on the principle that he’s the only guy guaranteed to lead his team in rushes.

      Any thoughts on starting Correll Buckhalter over Kevin Smith this week since Knowshon Moreno is questionable?

      • Brandon 7:49 am on September 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        While I think Buckhalter should see more carries this week due to Moreno’s injury, this might be the week that Kevin Smith sees the most action. The Lions should be able to keep the game competitive with the Redskins, so Smith should see plenty of action and should find the endzone. Stick with Kevin Smith.
