    Team of the Week – Week 15: Jerome Harrison. 

    Here is the fantasy football “Team of the Week,” listing the players that scored the most points (using standard scoring) over the course of Sunday’s games. This week you’ll notice a few oddities about the list, the first being the existence of two quarterbacks, both who kicked some serious behind and who couldn’t be left off the list. The second is the existence of Jerome Harrison, who rushed for an insane 286 yards (the third highest single game rushing total of all time!) Anyways, with the Monday Night Football game yet to take place (New York Giants @ Washington Redskins) this list may be a bit premature, but here is your team of the week nonetheless…

      By the way, anyone else find it interesting that A) the Browns scored 41 points AND B) that Brady Quinn threw for just 66 yards when the Browns scored 41 points? I guess it helps when you have Joshua Cribbs scoring 14 points on his own.

        Also, how did Andre Johnson catch nine passes for 196 yards and NOT score at least one touchdown?!

        • Squish 6:03 pm on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Cribbs for 14 points? Ha! I had him on the bench in a return yard league. Goodbye 26 points 🙁

          As it stands I have a 5 point buffer in that league with Nicks remaining. My opponent has Fred Davis. Let’s just say I’m not comfortable with the 5 point lead.

          Another league sees me down by 4 with Tynes left so i should pull that one off. Even with those two wins I’ll still only be 4-3 this week 🙁 It was a bad week to have my top players all flop. Let’s just say that a team with DeAngelo Williams and Michael turner was about equal to a week 15 loss…

          Hope you guys did well! Great call on Cribbs!

      I gave away my spot in the Championship game by failing to start Steve Smith. *waves goodbye to 2009 season*

      Makes for a ridiculously depressing Monday.

      • Brandon 9:03 am on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        In my league, I started Steve Smith (and still have Fred Davis left), but that’s not enough when you start the Sunday night game down over 60 points!

        • e-roc 9:06 am on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Ouch… The $$$ would have come in extremely handy…

          Side note: I am in the leader of my league is most points left on the bench (i.e. “The Worst GM”).

        • Brandon 9:19 am on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          The only real points I left on the bench were Mike Wallace and Joe Flacco (I started Schaub), so I can’t really complain. Reggie Bush (my flex spot) getting hurt after a long run was pretty annoying though!

        • Squish 6:06 pm on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Having Fred Davis while being down 60 points is better than having Lawrence Tynes in the same scenario 🙁

          Anybody else play against an inordinate amount of teams with Rodgers and/or Manning this week?

          In Rapdidraft I had to choose between Henderson, Coles and Wallace. I chose Henderson. I suck.

    • Tommy 10:42 am on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I made some bad mistakes… started Arian Foster over Bradshaw and Harrison and Cutler over Matt Moore, still going to win though (down 1 point with Devin Thomas, Quinton Ganther, and Fred Davis going tonight, he doesn’t have anyone)

      • Brandon 11:10 am on December 21, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That’s a lot of eggs in the Washington Redskins basket…but I think they can manage between 1 and 2 points between those three guys, hah

    Team of the Week – Week 14: Brandon Marshall Breaking Records 

    Here is the fantasy football “Team of the Week,” listing the players that scored the most points (using standard scoring) over the course of Sunday’s games. This week’s team is led by the man who shares my name, Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall, who broke the single season record for receptions with 21 in a losing effort to the Colts. Anyways, with the Monday Night Football game yet to take place (Arizona @ San Francisco) this list may be a bit premature, but here is your team of the week nonetheless…

      hey, brandon and matt! how was your weekend? i have some questions heading into the semis for you guys if you fancy. you’ve gotten me this far! upset of the year if a girl wins this league!!!

      – is joshua cribbs going to be an okay play against the chiefs in week 15? would you rather him or chris jennings?

      what about chambers/bowe against the browns?

      is maclin done for the next two weeks? if so, who replaces him in that high-flying passing offense: jason avant or reggie brown? also, do these past two weeks’ play make lesean mccoy fantasy irrevalent and, thus, droppable for cribbs/jennings?

      – I have Philly’s D up against SF… should i pick up SEA (vs. tb), GB (vs. pit), HOU (vs. stl), or CLE (vs. kc)?

      Thank you so much and have a wonderful week!

      • zach 12:42 am on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I have a very similar look for next week after a HUGE win this week wooo!
        -How about Cribbs or Jennings against KC? Maybe play whoever gets starting nod?
        – What about Chambers against the Browns (not Bowe)?
        p.s. with the cribbs/jenning situation I have Forte vs. Ravens, Ganther vs. Giants, Cadillac vs. Seahawks…which two would you start? thanks

        • zach 6:17 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          …any advice guys?

        • Brandon 10:48 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, play whoever is deemed the starter for the Browns running backs. Chambers is a safer play over Bowe at the moment. As for your running backs, go with Ganther and whoever you go with from Jennings/Cribbs.

      • Brandon 10:47 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m hoping Cribbs works out this week, as I’m starting him as my WR3! I assume both he and Jennings will be used against the Chiefs. If you’re considering them for the flex spot and your league awards for kick returns, go for Cribbs. If you don’t get any bonus for kick returns, Jennings is probably the safer bet.

        As for Chambers and Bowe, stick with Chambers until you see how big of a factor Bowe is in the offense after sitting out for a few weeks.

        As for the Eagles receivers, neither Avant or Brown are really that appealing, but Avant is still my best bet if I had to pick between the two (at least for this week.) There’s gotta be a better receiver out there for you to consider though.

        Finally, at defense, I like Seattle this week against the Bucs. Hopefully this helped and good luck!

      finley or fred davis this week at tight end?

      • Brandon 10:40 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m going with Fred Davis this week. The Giants are one of the worst teams in the league against the tight end position and Davis has been a touchdown machine lately.

      • Brandon 10:40 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Nice name by the way!

    • TJ 1:38 pm on December 14, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey guys, made it through but next week I’m up against Ray Rice vs Bears & Warner @ Detroit, & the New Brandon Marshall – and my matchups aren’t great, so could use some help!

      WRs: Welker, Austin, SmithNYG, MSW, Ocho
      Feeling a lot less stellar about them this week, given MSW & Ocho’s trends, Smith’s lack of TDs, Brady & Dallas inconsistencies.

      RBs: SJax, Wells, Charles, Fred Jackson, Forsett
      SJax may finally be near done (bad back + meaningless games), so there goes my #1 guy. Wells has Det at least, Charles has CLE (but PIT couldn’t run on them last week…)

      The big question: I find it hard to trust any Cleveland Brown this year, (and I’m a Browns fan), but it looks like they’re finally really using Cribbs in the running game. He’s listed as a WR in our league, so I could swap him for one of my WR (returns: points for TD, none for yards). I know this completely flies in the face of “go with the guys who got you there”, but I’m just not feeling too confident right now. Talk me down?

      • TJ 3:08 pm on December 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        And also: Reggie Bush is available FA – worth a swap for one of the above RBs?

        • Brandon 10:56 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Grab Reggie Bush for Justin Forsett if you still have the chance!

      • Brandon 11:07 am on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        At wide receiver I’d stick with your “inconsistencies”: Welker and Austin, as well as Steve Smith, who is getting a lot of looks each week. As for your running backs, I’d still keep Steven Jackson in there, along with Jamaal Charles, who is on fire lately.

        Cribbs is intriguing, but I don’t see how you can start him over Steve Smith, considering he really only has value if he can break open a few runs on his own. Smith has a chance for a long bomb from Eli Manning at any moment.

        • TJ 12:09 pm on December 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks, Brandon. One more question – At TE do you like Witten, Shiancoe, or Fred Davis?

        • Brandon 8:18 am on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I actually like Fred Davis over the other two, which is a bit surprising. Witten had a few good games recently, but last week he returned to his 5-catch-50-yard-2009-self. Davis has a great match-up with a Giants team that is pretty bad defending the tight end position and he has racked up the touchdowns in the past couple weeks.

        • TJ 12:34 pm on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks, I got Davis, I think he will outscore the other two.
          Since Sims-Walker is apparently healthy enough to go tonight, any change to your WR recommendations? Brady missed practice yesterday (finger, shoulder, ribs), I know he’ll start, but playing hurt again against a tough Buf D…………

        • Brandon 11:03 am on December 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Sims-Walker would have been nice, as he put up decent numbers, but now you’ll just have to wait and hope the other guys can at least match him. I was actually concerned for you last night though as I thought I had unfortunately advised you to start Fred Davis over Dallas Clark, but glad to see it was Jason Witten who I was thinking of. Keep Welker in there.

    Team of the Week – Week 11: Detroit Rock City! 

    Here is the fantasy football “Team of the Week” for week eleven, listing the players that scored the most points (using standard scoring) over the course of Sunday’s games. While last weekend’s Team of the Week featured the regulars (Brady, Chris Johnson, Peterson, Randy Moss, etc), this weekend featured some of the most unlikely performances of the season. You know the fantasy world has been turned on its head when the first name you read on this list is Matthew Stafford! Anyways, let’s get to the list…a list which contains players that were possibly on A) someone’s bench or B) free agency…

      *sigh* – I should have started Smith over McCoy. Cost me the win.

      • Brandon 11:04 am on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, tough one there. Hard to predict Smith would have over 100 yards receiving (and a touchdown!) On the ground, it tied for his third worst rushing performance of the season.

      • Brandon 12:04 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Didn’t realize until now that McCoy still had 99 yards and a score (but a fumble too.) Hard to complain too much about that performance from your RB2.

          No complaints except our league awards bonuses for exceeding 100 yards Ru. or Re… The other play that cost me was the Bengals DEF v. Chargers DEF.

        All hail Wes Welker in PPR formats!

        Nailed my salary cap team this week with Ricky Williams, Mendenhal, S. Rice, V. Davis, and Cundiff with AJ and Schaub yet to play.

        • Matt 8:50 am on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I don’t think there’s any question now: The “problem with Brady” early in the season was simply the lack of Wes Welker’s services.

    • Squish 12:58 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      And Chris Johson, Matt Schaub and AJ have yet to play 😉

      • Shirley 1:33 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        A PPR league I’m in, I still have Chris Johnson to play and my opponent has Nate Washington. I’m already ahead by about 30 points. I should be all right. 🙂

        • Brandon 7:22 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          In case you were wondering, the most likely situation in tonight’s game is Chris Johnson hurting himself on the first running play, fumbling the ball, then Matt Schaub throwing for 400 yards and 5 touchdowns. At least that’s what I need to happen for me to win in one of my leagues! 🙂

    • Squish 1:04 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Oh and Ladell Betts, I hate you. Hello Rock Cartwright, the only decent remaining healthy RB on Washington’s team! I swear if he gets injured and Quinton Ganther plays the rest of the game next week I’m never playing another Redskin player in fantasy for the rest of my life!

      • Matt 5:35 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’m putting in a claim for Rock Cartwright just because his name is completely awesome. Rock. Cartwright.

        • Brandon 7:24 pm on November 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          If that were true, you would have obviously put in a waiver claim for Larod Stephens-Howling back in week eight when he had his first career touchdown…because his name is the most awesome.
