    Tim Tebow to get the start 

    However, since he doesn’t qualify for another position (such as Joe Webb at WR) you can’t really start him in your fantasy playoffs…right? I’m sure some people out there will start him, but it won’t be because I recommended him! Anyways, with the change at quarterback, at least Yahoo finally has taken Kyle Orton off the Can’t Cut List, so make sure to drop him and pick up someone useful.

    It’s been an interesting year for Kyle Orton and I’m pretty interested to see the league’s perception of him going into the offseason. The Broncos will surely go a different direction, but Orton was pretty awesome for at least the first half of the year and showed that he can throw for some serious yardage if he wants to. With so many quarterback questions around the league (including in Denver!) I wonder who takes a shot on him next year?

    Anyways, good luck in all your games!

      I’m in a bind defense-wise. Do you think I should play the Oakland defense against Denver?

      • Brandon 12:13 pm on December 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Most definitely. Always jump on a chance to start a defense against a rookie QB making his first start! Good luck 🙂

      I watched some of this game. TT still has that funky throwing motion, but I don’t think it hurt him too much. Now all Denver needs is an O-line, a defense, a head coach, and another season!

        Philip Rivers has a pretty funky throwing motion too and he seems to be doing alright. Is Tebow the hybrid of Vick and Rivers? The best of both worlds? Probably not.

    Let me apologize on behalf of Kyle Orton and the Denver Broncos 

    First off, let me first apologize for recommending that anyone starts the Denver Broncos defense in week 14. How was I so blind to see what a juggernaut the Arizona Cardinals offense, led by the dominant John Skelton, Tim Hightower and Jay Feely, could be?!

    But seriously, I started Kyle Orton AND the Broncos defense in my most important league…and they got me -2 points each! Knock on wood, but I think a HUGE performance by Darren McFadden and a solid game by Chris Johnson may have saved me anyhow, but Orton and Denver did their best to foil my chances at a championship this year. I figured that any “NFL” defense should be able to hold a team like the Cardinals to a maximum of 17 points or something…not 43! I wonder if the Tim Tebow chants become loud enough that he gets a start in one of the upcoming games, as Orton has somehow instantly regressed into the Chicago-version of himself over the past couple weeks.

    Orton will now be benched for the rest of my fantasy season and the Broncos defense will be jettisoned from my roster for all eternity (or until sometime next year if they prove they know how to play the sport.)

    Embarassing…but I’m sure Josh McDaniels is smiling for the first time since his firing!

      I think I won my game, even with opponent having vick and desean.
      No need for apologies, made sense to play Denver D. I decided to get smart and play hauschka too over shayne grahm or picking up Feely himself. anyway, I also vowed never to play anything denver ever again.
      do you think feely will produce same amount of kicking points next week?

      • Brandon 10:10 am on December 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I doubt Feely puts up the same numbers he did last week. Picking a kicker from week-to-week is a roll of the dice. You’re gambling that your kicker’s team offense plays decent, but not well enough to find the endzone every time. The Cardinals offense really is terrible (no matter what the Broncos tell you) and I can’t see Feely repeating his performance. Good luck!

    • Hawgman 2:11 pm on December 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I also had Orton try to submarine my season. Luckily I have Welker, V. Davis, Hillis, and McFadden in my line-up, a 40 point lead and Boldin & Andre tonight. My opponent has Flacco and Peterson. I feel real good with my WR’s +40, but I am not celebrating just yet.

      Now worries on the Denver defense call. You made the Atlanta defense call earlier in the week and they were plenty available. I almost swapped for Denver but noticed just how badly scoring the Denver defense has been this year and thought different. Seriously though have you looked at how poor the Broncos defense has been for fantasy this year? Through 13 games they have 20 fantasy points! 20! That’s the worst fantasy football defense I have ever witnessed since I started playing. I mean Arizona was a great matchup but playing the worst fantasy defense ever was a stretch. I actually played the Arizona defense in a couple leagues where i was desperate based solely on the idea that Denver would be down the whole game.

      Nevertheless, thanks for the Atlanta call. It was the right one. 😉

      Rodger’s concussion killed me, but Lloyd’s 3 pts didn’t help either. 12-1 regular season, overall points leader, now one and done after losing by 10 pts to the #8 seed. A touchdown or two by my offense would have been nice this week (Rice, Foster, Roddy, Lloyd – only Vernon Davis came through).

      Good luck to everyone else!

    The Wire – Week 7 pick-ups: Who's starting Tim Tebow next week? 

    Here are the potential waiver wire targets for the upcoming week. This week Tim Tebow finally cracks The Wire list and while it’ll be interesting to see how Denver utilizes him for the rest of the season, I’m hoping no one is utilizing him on their fantasy teams! Anyways, I’ve included my thoughts on each player, as well as 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…

    (More …)

      What are your thoughts on Malcolm Floyd going forward – looks like he’s at least out next week, and if his injury lingers, he’s going to run into a possible Vincent Jackson problem just as the fantasy playoffs approach.

      Along with Floyd my WRs are White, Collie, Lloyd, and the newly effective Roy E Williams (we start 2, non-ppr). Don’t want to rush into anything just yet, but Deion Branch is out there……. (Britt, Holmes, and Woodhead – unclear if he’s an RB or WR at ESPN are also out there.. As is Sidney Rice, for playoff consideration)

      Also – I’m stacked at RB, but other than Ray Rice have only Marshawn Lynch (vs Ari) to start week due to byes. Is Woodhead worth a start over Lynch this Sunday?


      • Brandon 4:39 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d hang on to Floyd. Branch will be decent, but he’s not going to crack your top 2, so there’s no real need to make the change. If Floyd is able to return soon and plays a few more games as the #1 WR, he’s worth hanging on to.

        At running back, I think I do like Woodhead over Lynch. Marshawn could sneak in for a touchdown and negate the difference between the two, but the way Woodhead is being used seems like it’ll give him more potential for fantasy points. Would you have to drop Lynch though?

        • TJ 1:14 am on October 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Yes, I would have to drop Lynch. I don’t really see usuing him beyond this week, though, unless he’s good for trade bait – remaining RBs are Rice, Foster, Best & Tomlinson.

      What do you think about KC def going forward over the Saints?? KC has a soft schedule moving forward and it is costly in my league to make changes.

      • Brandon 4:35 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d keep the Saints. Their schedule isn’t all that tough either. The Chiefs defense hasn’t scored all that well in terms of fantasy up to this point, so even with a softer schedule, there’s no telling if they can increase the number of turnovers.

      Hey guys. I’m in a 12 team league.
      I have a trade pending where I send off Ryan Torain and Braylon Edwards for DeSean Jackson.

      I’m 3-3 and have Boldin, Wallace, M.Williams (TB), D. Bess.
      My other RBs are Foster, Mendenhall, and R. Mathews.

      I also have a decent shot at getting Branch/Garcon/Crayton/F.Jackson off the waiver wire. (I’m 6th in order).

      Good deal?

      • Brandon 4:46 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t do it. Braylon Edwards should be a solid WR2/3 for you each week and Torain is solid RB depth, which you can never have too much of. DeSean Jackson has 2 good games this year and just got his clock cleaned and will miss a game with a concussion. I’d go for Deion Branch instead if you’re worried about WR depth.

        • Robin Palm 5:10 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          My reasoning is that I really wouldn’t start B.Edwards over Boldin or Wallace (now w/ Ben), and I wouldn’t start Torain over Foster/Mendenhall. Also, portis may be back for fantasy playoffs.

          So at worst I’m losing guys that are bye week fills or competing for my flex spot and gaining a #1 wideout in 2 weeks.

          His playoff schedule is HOU/NYG/DAL.

          and he has 3 20 point games and 3 3 point games. 50/50 home run hitter.

          I’m still on the fence, especiall if his head is really messed up.

      Wondering about Cassell this week. I have Romo in a non PPR league and Palmer in a PPR…thinking about picking Cassell up in both and starting him…

      Hey guys, I wrote a similar article on this week’s waiver wire pickups.

      • Sloth 1:36 pm on October 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Tommy you are way to high on Torain….he played the 29th ranked rush D last week, playing the 3rd best this week is a lot different.

        • JP 2:42 pm on October 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          and if you watched the game he looked awful, though he did peg some points. He is acting like he is breakout runner when he is really a more up the gut type RB. There is no way he continues to score if he keeps going for the sideline…

    • JONES 8:46 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Is Cutler worth a waiver pickup? League penalizes for sacks. My QB right now is Henne. Cassel also available.

    • Reed 1:47 pm on October 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Quick Question. Who’s the better player to stash V-Jax or Sidney Rice? Also, what are your thoughts on Brandon Tate, is he still worth hanging onto?
