    Random fantasy football musings 


    • Ray Rice should be awesome this year with Willis McGahee out of town and a new fullback leading the way (the same one that led the way for Arian Foster last year!)
    • I’m hearing that Raiders running back Darren McFadden is tearing it up at training camp so far. Michael Bush should still be in town and will take some of his carries, but this is McFadden’s job to lose.
    • With receiver Steve Smith a free agent at the moment who is returning from fairly serious surgery, Giants WR Mario Manningham is someone to look at for your WR3 spot (if he drops that far!) He would probably make a solid WR2 as well.
    • Is it crazy to think Tarvaris Jackson may have a decent season? He’s got Sidney Rice, big Mike Williams, Zach Miller and John Carlson to throw to. I’d prefer Josh Freeman, Matt Cassel or Sam Bradford, but still, someone to consider as a backup QB option if you’re in dire need.

    Up in the air

    • Not yet drinking the Shonn Greene Kool-aid. Rex Ryan claims they’ll feature a heavy dose of Greene, but I think we’ve heard that before. He’s a RB2 at most.
    • Same goes for Beanie Wells. Just because Tim Hightower is out of town, I’m still not ready to believe in him. Jury is still out though and he could end up changing my mind.


    • WR Jacoby Ford was one of my big sneaky picks, but his broken hand scares me. He’ll be ready in time for the regular season, but keep an eye on him during the preseason games to see if he gets any playing time.
    • Chris Johnson’s hold out is worrisome. I guess if you get his backup to start the year you might be alright, but I prefer a guy who I know will start from week 1 (e.g. AP, Rice, Charles, etc.) Plus, I had CJ last year and he didn’t light the world on fire enough to demand the top pick this year.
    • I was hoping that people would forget about Jermichael Finley after missing most of last season with an injury, but it doesn’t seem that way. With a lack of top-tier tight ends this year (most of the top guys seem to be fading a bit) Finley could get drafted way above of your price range.

      Thanks, very useful.

      I agree with your comments about Rice, McFadden and Manningham. My only concern with Rice is that he had surgury I believe on his knee during the offseason. Either way I like the addition of a top FB to clear his way.

      I agree with your comments about Beanie. He is a bust this year.

      Every year I draft a RB in the first 2 rounds and every year that RB has a season ending injury within the first 3 games of the season. I would love to have Run-DMC on my roster again this year, but being a life-long Razorback’s fan, I just don’t know if I should curse by boy like that. Maybe I’ll take Ingram – he played for Abalamma…. ;-P

    After doing some quick searches, it appears no one on the internet cares how Tarvaris Jackson spells his name. Half the sites say Tavaris, the other half say Tarvaris. If you search for either on Wikipedia, it brings up the correct profile of Tarvaris Jackson. Just thought it was interesting…but it’s probably not.

      Hey Brandon you guys did me right on my last question, how about 1 more time. I have Ray Rice, Cedric Benson, Michael Turner, Knoshon Morenon, and Jamaal Charles. Which 2 backs would u go with? Everyone suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks

      • Brandon 10:09 am on December 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Only two guys? Man, you need to get in a league with a flex spot! Anyways, I have Turner ranked as one of my top RBs of the week, so definitely go with him. As for the other guy, I’d go with Jamaal Charles, but it’s VERY close with Knowshon Moreno. Rice is also only a few spots below them, hah. Good luck!

    The Wire – Week 14 pick-ups: Has the Tarvaris Jackson era begun? 

    Week 14 in many leagues means the start of the fantasy football playoffs…so hopefully your team is still alive! At this point, if you’re relying on waiver wire pickups to carry you to victory, you could be in serious trouble. However, maybe you just need to upgrade one minor spot to give you that tiny edge you need to advance to the next round. Anyways, I just needed someone for the post heading, so I picked Tarvaris Jackson, and if Favre starts in week 14, you obviously don’t want to start him! As always, we’ve included the percentage owned (taken from Yahoo.) Take a look and see if any of these guys can help patch your squad together and carry you to the Promised Land…

    Is Tarvaris Jackson worth starting? 

    Obviously, you’ve got better options. At least I hope you do. But if you’re desperate, my feeling is that Jackson’s not an abysmal option if Favre sits (and I’m not saying he will). Jackson has been a first- or second-team quarterback (ok, mostly second-team) for several years now. He’s never had a weapon like Randy Moss at his disposal or a tight end as good as Shiancoe.

    OK, when it comes to talking up Jackson as a fantasy QB, that’s all I’ve got. It’s easy to take the other side and bash him, so I’m not going to bother, especially since two better low-end options have emerged this week (Fitzpatrick and Kitna), but for what it’s worth, I don’t think it’s ridiculous to start Jackson this week if you’re feeling both desperate and adventurous. The upside’s there, and its name is Randy Moss.

      Hey, the rankings thread is really long so I’m gonna ask this here. Need to play 2 WRs out of this motley crew; Roy Williams, Donald Driver, Steve Breaston, and Brian Hartline. PPR league. Thanks!

      • Brandon 12:25 pm on October 31, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Not that great of options, but I’d go with Roy Williams and gamble on Steve Breaston. Good luck!

    The Wire: Waiver Wire Pickups for Week 3, 2008 

    Here’s a look at the players to target on your league’s waiver wire this week. This list is ordered by the percentage of ESPN leagues in which the player is available; even if you’re not a ESPN user, it’s a decent indication of how likely you are to find the player on waivers in your league. We also note here how strongly we feel about this pickup with three categories: Instant Starter, Grab ‘n’ Stash, or Desperation Pickup.

    Chansi Stuckey, WR, Jets (0.7% owned, Desperation Pickup) – He’s not the primary target in this offense…or even the second (third?), but he does have a touchdown in each of the first two games for the Jets on a combined six catches for 80 yards. He’s not going to blow your opponent away, but if you’re absolutely stuck for a WR3 play in week three, you might consider Stuckey.

    Michael Bush, RB, Raiders (6.1% owned, Grab ‘n’ Stash) – “Starter” Justin Fargas left Sunday’s game with a groin injury and the severity is yet to be determined. While Darren McFadden is still the main man in this running game, Bush will get a healthy dose of carries in the next week or so if Fargas happens to miss extended time. (More …)

      Chansi Stuckey plays for the Jets, not Giants. Giants have Burress, Toomer and Steve Smith 🙂

      @Rushi: Good call…shows how much I know about the guy (or maybe I just need to pay a little more attention to the player profile!)

    • Ali 10:15 am on September 16, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      hey Brandon, great blog. I need some advice. I have Megatron (CJohnson) and Roddy White as my two starting receivers. I also have David Patten and Patrick Crayton on the bench. For backup RBs i have Justin Fargas, BJax, and Sporles ( I do not own LT).

      I feel like I need help at WR b/c White is inconsistent. So, my question is would you recommend dropping any of the guys mentioned above for Stuckey, Gage, Antonio Bryant (TB), Isaac Bruce , Bryant Johnson (SF),Robert Meachem , Amani Toomer.

      other back RBs available are: Fred Jackson, Ahmad Bradshaw (I have Jacobs), LaMont Jordan,Le’Ron McClain , Jamal Charles … what do you think?
