    More bad news for those who have Terrell Owens on their fantasy teams. Not only is he complaining that he “banged his knee a little bit” in the game this past weekend, but Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has stated, “Lee (Evan)’s been my guy when I’ve been in there,” will be the quarterback again this weekend when the team plays the Texans.

        Mike Bell and Jamaal Charles at RB, then Nicks, Crabtree and Sims-Walker at WR. For your tight end, go with Tony Gonzalez.

    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.

      Hey love the site guys,

      I’m in a predicament here. I’ve got Marion Barber and Tashard Choice. Who do you guys think i should start this week? My other RB’s are Reggie Bush and Steven Jackson.

      • Brandon 3:33 pm on October 22, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

    • Luke 8:42 am on October 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      hello, i need two running backs from deangelo williams, ronnnie brown and joseph addai, and two WRs from fitzgerald, Ochocinco and greg jennings. please help

      • Brandon 2:13 pm on October 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

      All right i got a choice Donald Driver vs Sidney Rice

      BLOGGERS SPEAK

      • Brandon 2:04 pm on October 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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.

    • Luke 12:53 pm on October 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      i would go with driver for sure. wat u think of my problem above Don

      As a flex: Devin Hester, Hakeem Nicks, or Johnny Knox?

      • Brandon 8:45 am on October 25, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        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 6: Brady Back in Business 

    Here are our “Hits” and “Misses” for week six, 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!) Normally I would leave off the most obvious picks, such as Tom Brady against the Titans. However, the Patriots passing game hasn’t lived up to it’s billing so far this year and there are managers who are probably considering benching this week, so I’ve included him as a reminder to get him in your line-ups! Anyways, here we go with the hits and misses for the week… (More …)

      I suck at RB this year. My star RB is Jamal Lewis lol, who happens to make your miss list this week.

      I have Leon Washington, Jamal Lewis, Mike Bell and Sammy Morris. Any suggestions?

      I also have Johnny Knox in as a flex right now, but picked up Jeremy Maclin after his big week last sunday. Knox as a real starter is more reliable, but he’s up against atlanta, while maclin is up against oakland after his big week. You think its worth the risk going for Maclin over Knox here?

      Thanks guys

      • Brandon 3:47 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah I’m not lovin’ that running back crew you have there, but if you need to start two this week, go with Leon Washington and Jamal Lewis (as he’ll at least get the bulk of the team’s carries.)

        • Squish 11:18 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I actually like Morris better than Washington. He’ll get a majority of the touches in NE while Taylor is out

    • Amir 3:16 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      My league is 1 rb 2 flex and 2 WR (10 teams)
      I have
      RB: Gore, Ray Rice, K Smith, Hightower, Donald Brown
      and my WRs are kind of weak: MSW, Santana Moss, Antonio Bryant, Nate Washington and Donnie Avery,

      I just traded K Smith for Housh — One of the players in my league really thinks I got screwed over here but I really have an abundance of RBs and I would think i can start Housh most weeks going forward (Kind of a Seattle fan and I’m believing now that Hass is back) — What do you think about this trade?

      • Brandon 3:43 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I see no issue with this trade. With only one mandatory RB spot, having a lot of depth at the position isn’t all that important (and can sometimes be aggravating when you can’t decide who to play!) Now you can start Sims-Walker, Moss, and Housh regularly, along with Gore and Rice.

        • amir 4:05 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          eh im not a huge moss fan — hopefully antonio bryant turns into something decent or maybe even start hightower with good matchups — but i definitely think this gives me more flexibility as opposed to be bound by teh 1 mandatory RB

        • Brandon 4:35 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, Santana Moss is very frustrating to own…he either goes nuts or does nothing. As long as you have other decent options (Housh and Sims-Walker) to hold down the WR position in his off days though, you should be all set.

    • lou 10:43 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have Rivers and Hasselbeck, who should i start?

      • Squish 11:20 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hasselbeck for sure this week.

      • Brandon 8:33 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with Squish…go with Hasselbeck, who’s playing one of the worst pass defenses in the league, while Rivers plays one of the best.

        • David 10:11 pm on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I just picked up Hasselbeck. Benching Shaub

    • Brian 10:48 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I have 4 WR and I need to pick 2, who should I go with?

      Ochocinco

      V. Jackson

      • Brandon 8:32 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Although Vincent Jackson has been a best this year, you might want to sit him this week. Ochocinco and Burleson have great match-ups and should deliver for your team.

    • John 11:58 pm on October 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      So I should start Campbell over RIvers this week??

      Also which 3 players out of the following should I start this week?
      Santana Moss, Mike SimsWalker, Tashard Choice, Cadillac Williams, Devin Hester, Mohamed Masaqquoi, and Chester Taylor.

      • Brandon 8:38 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Keep Rivers in there, as he’s proven that he can be effective against good defenses already this year a couple times. As for your RB/WR’s, go with Santana Moss, Mike Sims-Walker and Devin Hester (I have a good feeling about him this week as he appears to be 100% healthy.)

      • Jeramie 12:27 pm on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Im playing the undefeated team this week in our league, so im trying to figure out my best options…I have 2 spots open. I have the choice of Dwanye Bowe who is a F/A , Mike wallace (WR ) PIT who is on my bench and also Mike Bell (RB). Which 2 should I play this week….Thanks

        • Brandon 7:49 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I like the two wide receivers, as Bell is A) returning from injury, B) playing a great defense in the Giants, and C) playing second fiddle to Pierre Thomas.

    • e-roc 9:33 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      IMO, MJD is a bust vs. all the preseason fantasy hype, especially for a guy who’s flying solo on his team.

      Q1: Would you start Donnie Avery over Steve Smith (NYG) this week? I will be starting Steve Smith (CAR) and TJ Whosyomama.

      Q2: Do I start Thomas Jones (NYJ) or Kevin Smith (DET)?

      • Brandon 10:26 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey E-Roc, I’d agree with you that MJD is somewhat of a bust, but a lot of running backs are disappointing so far this year and the Yahoo! guys seem to pick him as the top RB of the week on a consistent basis, so they must believe in him still.

        For your receivers, stick with both Steve Smith’s. Avery needs a few more solid games to prove that he can be consistent enough to start over someone like Smith.

        At running back, I like Thomas Jones against the Bills, who are giving up the third most fantasy points to the running back position this year.

    • Gavin 11:05 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      QB-McNabb or Hasselbeck?

      RB-Slaton or Sammy Morris?

      • Brandon 10:20 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        For running back go with Slaton, as the Titans should stop Morris pretty good. As for your quarterback question though, you’re in a pretty nice position there as both guys have excellent match-ups. It’s almost a coin flip decision, but I’m leaning towards McNabb against a Raiders defense that was lit up by Eli Manning and the G-Men last weekend.

    • T-Rex 11:36 am on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      In a 12 team PPR with flex…..would you trade Rice and Royal for RMoss and LJohnson?

      I have depth at running back: Gore, Thomas/Bell, Rice, Moreno, Bradshaw and I’m looking to upgrade at WR (i have Andre Johnson, Burleson, Royal, Bennett)

      The thought of Moss and Johnson as my two WRs is almost interesting enough to take on Larry’s baggage. What do you think…go for it, or hold out for something better?

      • Brandon 10:15 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like that trade given the depth at running back. Would they be willing to take Moreno instead of Rice? Probably not, but just curious. I think Moss has a big second half of the season ahead of him and would be a great addition to your team.

        • T-Rex 12:06 pm on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks Brandon – glad to see we were thinking along the same lines. In the end I got Randy Moss and Beanie Wells for Knowshon and Eddie Royal.

          I decided on Beanie’s 2nd half upside over LJ’s week in/week out reality….think I still got the better end here?

        • Brandon 7:51 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah, I like that trade. They’ve said they will try to get Wells more involved in passing downs (which is almost every down for the Cardinals), so he should improve as the season moves on.

      Kyle Orton or Philip Rivers?
      this week they face each other

      • Brandon 10:12 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Rivers, he’s beat up on some solid defenses already this year.

    • Jone 11:05 pm on October 16, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Brandon,

      I need your advice. Should I drop Pierre Garcon or Mario Manningham for Jeremy Maclin on waiver wire?

      • Brandon 10:12 am on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I’d go for Jeremy Maclin. It looks like he’s being heavily considered to take over Kevin Curtis as the #2 receiver in Philly, while Garcon is rotating with Austin Collie and whose role is not ensured once Anthony Gonzalez returns.

    • jo 7:46 pm on October 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Mike Bell or Tim Hightower??

      • Brandon 7:47 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Hightower and hope he catches a few passes out of the backfield to pad his stats.

    • Holly 9:14 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      OK I’m at a loss for who to play this week… please help!

      Options are:
      RB: Correl Buckhalter, Adrian Peterson, Darren Sproles and Reggie Bush
      WR: Terrell Owens, Earl Bennet, and Lance Moore
      TE: Owen Daniels or Kellen Winslow

      Basically I can have 1 TE, 2 WR, 2 RB and then a flex position.

      I’m well into my BYEs and do not have a clue what to do! Please help!

    • Holly 9:27 am on October 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I also have the opportunity to pick up Steve Breaston or Kevin Walter too…

      Any help would be greatly appreciated….

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

        I’d actually recommend picking up both Breaston and Walter in exchange for Bennett and Moore.

        If you DO make those two moves, then start T.O. and both receivers, plus Peterson and Bush. If you don’t make the moves before the games today though, start Peterson, Bush, Buckhalter, T.O. and Bennett.

        For your tight end, start Kellen Winslow. Good luck!

        Go with Drew Brees at home, while Eli still has that hurt foot to deal with against a tough Saints defense.

    Hits & Misses – Week 2: Vikings ready to pillage 

    Now that week one is in the record books, we’re starting to get a better idea of how the teams will look this season. It’s obvious that Adrian Peterson is the best running back in the league and he’s being rewarded for his spectacular play in week one with a Detroit Lions defense that was complete owned by the Saints last week. While you would think that that would earn him a spot on the Hit list this week, I had to leave him off for reasons mentioned in my week one post. However, that does not prevent me from including his quarterback, who starts off this edition of the Hits & Misses… (More …)

      Should I pick up and start Correll Buckhalter or start Cadillac Williams?

      • Brandon 11:52 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I guess it depends on who you need to drop to get Buckhalter. Don’t drop Cadillac for him though! You’re probably safe just starting Cadillac this week if you don’t want to shake up your roster too much.

    • e-roc 11:03 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      @brandon – with TJ suffering from the injury bug, do I start Laverneus Coles or Steve Smith (NYG)?

      @John – I vote for Buckhalter w/his matchup vs. the hapless Brownies.

      • Brandon 11:54 am on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Hey e-roc, if Housh plays, then I think you still want to go with him this week. It seems that Coles hasn’t been fully integrated into the Bengals offense yet and any Giants receiver is always a wild card (although Smith looked good in week one.) If Housh doesn’t play, go with Smith.

        • e-roc 4:36 pm on September 18, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks Brandon. Sounds like he’s going to still play, but who knows for how long (or how well!).
