    I’m starting the Tampa Bay defense against Pittsburgh this week in my favorite league in the hopes that the perennial backup will cough up a few turnovers. I’m either clever like a fox or clever like a retarded fox.

      First Vick, now Tampa Bay defense? What’s next, starting James Hardy? 🙂

        Glad you bring up Vick. He’s lighting it up on my bench. What could I except in a trade?

          Vick and breaston for Miles Austin and Alex Smith??

      Eli Manning, Carson Palmer, of McNabb this week? I’m leaning McNabb against St. Louis. Thoughts?

      Guh… Who should I start?

      QB – Vick or Cutler?

      WR (pick two):
      – Donald Driver (@CHI)
      – Austin Collie (@DEN)
      – Little Giant Smith (v. TEN)
      – Hakeem Nicks (v. TEN)

        Champ Bailey should be marking Reggie Wayne which might see more targets go to Collie if he’s playing??? The Titans give up a bunch of fantasy points but it’s mainly because of the first week against oakland. Last week vs the Steelers was a different story.

        Don’t start Smith with what we’ve seen from him so far, wait for him to do something notable. Nicks +Collie/Driver- both the Bears and Denver D should give up a lot of yards with Rodgers and Peyton throwing the seed.

      Question- Vikes D is on the waiver, should I drop Chargers D (who I was going to start) and pick up Vikes D and start them this week vs Detroit?

      • Mal 2:58 am on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        After looking at the Vikes schedule I think i might leave them there

      Wow, this decision went over like a fart in church.

    Drool-worthy matchups for the stretch run 

    With nine weeks of data in the books on this year’s NFL team defenses, it’s now pretty clear which matchups you should absolutely love to see on your players’ schedules for the remainder of the season.

    Passing Defense

    Worst of the Worst:

    Detroit Lions: They allow a whopping 263 passing yards per game, including games where they gave up 358 to Brees, 340 to Campbell, 358 to Rodgers, and 329 to Hasselbeck. And only the Titans (who I’ll get to in a minute) have allowed more passing TDs.

    Kansas City Chiefs: Only ten sacks on the season, second-worst in the league, and only three interceptions, which is obviously the worst. (Interesting aside – the Redskins, who give up the fewest yards per game, are tied with the Browns for the second-fewest INTs – just four.)

    (More …)

      Does this imply that you’re giving the edge to the Chiefs this weekend v. Oakland? Who’s going to suck less?

      • Matt 9:55 am on November 11, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d prefer to pretend that game doesn’t exist. 🙂

          Speak to me ohh fantasy gods i have a choice
          sidney rice

          Kevin Smith ( rb)
          Who deserves my starting roster spot this week?
          oh and calvin johnson

          A lot of my sources like Sidney Rice this week so think about taking him. Kevin Smith is the obvious option to me but I like taking a chance on Rice this week. You can’t expect much from Marshall against Washington’s pass defense and they should be WAY ahead all day. CJ hasn’t shown he’s fully healed yet so I’d wait to begin starting him again.

          So your real choices are Sidney Rice or Kevin Smith. The problem is that both of them have a downside. Rice won’t be getting too many looks because his team won’t need to pass and he’s got all kinds of competition at WR on his own team.. Kevin Smith gets looks but has done next to nothing with them. He has only 1 run over 20 yards all season and is averaging only 3.3 YPC. In the end I’d say take Smith if you only need 8 or 9 points (the highest projection I’ve seen for him in PPR is 16 with a low of 4) and Rice if you’d like more upside (I’ve seen PPR projections as a high as 24 points with a low of 7.8).

          My personal pick is Rice in both standard and PPR.

      Great post Matt. I’ve been tracking things more in my head but it’s really nice to see it all spelled out on the same page! I’ve definitely been planning to have these playoff matchups anywhere I can.

      As I said a few weeks ago it was a good idea to target Hightower who was low value then. I traded for him in several leagues and now my mouth is watering over his SF, DET, STL series of matchups which have Arizona as a team ranked in the top 5 of projected playoff fantasy scoring in every standard FF position.

      As it is now, for weeks 14-16 the top 5 at each position for projected (based on the average points given up by the teams on their schedule those weeks) are:
      QB – Hard to be able to do anything here. All the good QBs are already taken. However, Henne may be a viable fill-in down the stretch for Ryan and Orton owner’s (ranked 32nd worst and 27th worst playoff QB schedules respectively)
      1. SD
      2. MIA
      3. STL
      4. ARI
      5. NO

      RB – Watch the Jamaal Charles/Kolby Smith situation very closely. Go after Hightower if you can. I guarantee he pays off down the stretch. Also be the first to jump on Fred Taylor if he comes back.
      1. KC
      2. NE
      3. WAS
      4. ATL
      5. ARI

      WR – I’m ignoring STL and MIA because their offenses suck but at this point consider trading AJ or R. Moss for VJ or Fitz for a matchup upgrade down the stretch.
      1. MIA
      2. STL
      3. SD
      4. NO
      5. ARI

      TE – More or less doesn’t mean anything since they don’t have reliable options (save SF)
      1. TEN
      2. CIN
      3. SF
      4. ARI
      5. HOU

      DEF – Keep these in mind especially because a lot of them are available. I’ve had defenses in the Championship game win me as many titles as any other position.
      1. NYG
      2. NE
      3. ARI
      4. BAL
      5. OAK

      Anyway, just thought I’d add some stuff in. For a wider range of values go here:

          Thanks! I really just more or less combined data I found on different sites. No big hassle there. I meant to add kicker rankings but I can’t seem to find a way to edit my posts 🙁

        She’s awesome. I credit our “discovery” by the fantasy football community in 2007 in large part to the weekly link love she was sending us.

    Tampa Bay running back Derrick Ward seems to think the team will be using a 2-2-1 rotation in the backfield this season. This means he would get two series, then Earnest Graham would get two series, and finally Cadillac Williams would get a series (with random carries throughout the other two players series’.) While Ward says this will keep all of the running backs fresh and that it seemed to work with the Giants last year, it’s probably not the news you wanted to hear if you had already drafted (or planned to draft) any of these guys for your fantasy team. At this point Ward and Graham make for borderline RB2 plays and are probably more suited as bye-week fill-in’s or injury insurance.
