    Not sure everyone is aware yet, but the Cowboys recently cut running back Tashard Choice and he quickly found his way to fantasy football running back hell. That’s right, Choice signed with the Washington Redskins and will now join a cast of running backs that only put up good numbers when on your bench or when they’re a free agent in your league.

    Anyways, I thought I should mention that as you’ll undoubtedly see him on the waiver post this week, which I am currently working on…

      OH, I heard that last night, and just laughed. Especially considering I have Torain, and I am definitely dropping him this week. I also heard Massoquoi is going to Oakland?? Is that right?

        I haven’t heard the news about Massaquoi, but if it’s true, I’ll credit you with breaking news! 🙂

      Quick Advice, Who should I take for my bye week fill in?????
      Tebow, Ryan, Sanchez, or Cassel……..Im thinking Ryan, coming off bye, and against Indy?!?!

      Awesome! Despite Dallas’s disgusting performance, I beat the number 1 in my league and am not the top dog! 🙂

      I’m pretty happy with my lineup now, and this next match-up seems like a sure win, but is there anything I can do to strengthen my roster? Who will do better this week, Fitzpatrick or Freeman, Decker or Lloyd?

      ** Week 9 **
      Starters
      ———
      Ryan Fitzpatrick QB *P*
      Fred Jackson RB
      DeMarco Murray RB
      LeSean McCoy RB
      Brandon Lloyd WR
      A.J. Green WR
      Jason Witten TE
      49ers D/ST
      Dan Bailey K

      Bench
      ———
      Josh Freeman QB
      Maurice Jones-Drew RB *BYE*
      Willis Mcgahee RB *O*
      Brandon Jacobs RB
      Eric Decker WR
      Saints D/ST
      David Nelson WR

      Friends have been asking me to trade off one of my running backs, of which I have several. Anyone I should shoot for?

        I am *now* the top dog, excuse the “not” lol

        • Adam 3:50 pm on November 1, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Maybe sell high on Murray and try to get a real WR1? Pair him with Decker or Nelson and try to get Colston or Smith? You could also try trading MJD for Megatron, though that may not fly.

          • Will 4:41 pm on November 2, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Yeah, Johnson would be nice to have… the owner doesn’t have many good RB, and his other WRs are not that special:

            ** Starting **
            Beanie Wells RB
            Peyton Hillis, RB
            Mark Ingram, RB
            Sidney Rice, WR
            Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR

            ** Bench **
            Ryan Torain, RB
            Reggie Wayne, WR
            Calvin Johnson, WR

            should I suggest a trade of Murray and Decker for Johnson, or MJD and Decker for Johnson?

            If I traded Murray and Decker, I would have to move Jacobs, McGahee, or Nelson to starting for this week. If I traded MJD and Decker, I wouldn’t have to change anything. Which trade offer would have better chances of succeeding?

    Free agent pick-ups: Sidney Rice and Tashard Choice 

    From Twitter:

    On Sidney Rice…@chipscoggins: Sidney Rice is on the field practicing. He is running full speed and making cuts.

    On Tashard Choice…@espn_macmahon: There’s Felix Jones. He’s wearing sweats. Might not be a bad idea to pick up Tashard Choice in your fantasy league.

    Seems that Felix Jones is banged up and Sidney Rice could be returning pretty soon for Minnesota 🙂

      I snagged Rice off the waiver wire. Contemplating picking up Choice, I doubt it though.

      • Brandon 3:29 pm on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Choice is only really worth anything if Felix Jones doesn’t start. He’s more of a flyer than Rice at this point.

      • tommy 3:36 pm on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Well, I just picked up Choice. I figure it’s worth a shot. My friend who I’m playing this week is also starting Felix Jones, so it’s nice in that sense too. He can’t get choice now at least, lol

    • Hawgman 4:10 pm on November 3, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I have Felix Jones – on my bench for now. Until they can show me something that looks like football I’m gunna leave him there.
      Just wondering about the prevailing wisdom that is the “handcuff”. Why is it a good idea to grab a backup when the starter goes down? If he were good enough to play, he would be playing, right?
      Case in point – I drafted Ryan Grant in the 2nd round because he was doing OK behind a line that was banged up so I figured that he would do better because the line was healthy and he was not part of a committee. Well, as you all know, he got broken early in the season. His back-up is doing ok, but not as well as I would have expected Grant to do, yet everyone in FF land was touting him as the next coming. This guy was not even splitting carries with Grant.
      My thought is, there is a reason that Choice is the 3rd option in Dallas.

      • Brandon 10:58 am on November 4, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. Who’s to say that the backup for one team can’t be better than the starters for several other teams? In that case, that backup would have a lot of value if the team’s starter went down. Also, other factors can play into who gets carries. If a player gets a lot of money to be the starter, the team is more likely to get their money’s worth out of him I assume. If he’s older as well, he may have “earned” the right to start, even if there is a chance his backup could have a little more value. The players all have egos as well that coaches have to look out for. If a starter is proving to be ineffective though (cought * Marion Barber * cough), the coach will eventually look to the next guy in line. In the case of Dallas, they have some decent depth at the position. My guess is that Tashard Choice is at least as good as the starter on a few teams…Patriots? Bills? New Orleans? Maybe even someone like Cedric Benson? You get the idea…

    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!

    Wide receivers to watch out for (sleepers) 

    With most fantasy football league drafts complete, it’s time to skim the waiver wire for some players to keep an eye on. If you’re in a Yahoo league, these are the guys you would click the little ‘Add to Watch List’ flag next to their name. I guess you could consider these as “sleeper picks”, but they’re really just guys who have shown promise in the offseason and whose numbers could surprise you when the season is all said and done. I’ve also included a bonus running back waiver wire pickup in case you were interested.

    Wide receivers to watch:

    1. Davone Bess, MIA – Last season Bess ended the year with a respectable 54 receptions, but it was the end of the year where he really shined. Over the last six games of the season, Davone had 35 catches. This year he’s fighting to be the number two receiver alongside Ted Ginn, but in the end he should again be Pennington’s go-to guy and should put up some decent numbers.
    2. David Clowney, NYJ – Apparently he didn’t win the battle to be the #2 receiver for the Jets, but he’s faster than Chansi Stuckey and had a solid preseason. Look for him to get a lot of looks in the passing game no matter where he is on the depth chart.
    3. (More …)

      I am officially on the Hakeem Nicks bandwagon. He apparently just worked his way up to #4 WR on the depth chart and Im surprised he isnt #2. I suppose the Giants want to give former high pick Manningham a shot but Nicks’ pre-season explosion may keep him off the field and push Manningham down the depth chart.

      • Brandon 2:02 pm on September 12, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah I agree, I think he’ll move up the depth chart mid-way through the season, but I’m still holding off on my final judgement until we see what this year’s version of the Giants offense is all about.

    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!

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!
