    Week 3 FAIL: Miles behind everyone else 

    Continuing with a new post for this season, here are a few players who just didn’t quite live up to expectations this week. Were they over-rated to begin with? Did they just have a bad game? Were they benched because their team was dominating (or getting dominated?) It’s probably just a one week mishap, but if they land on this list a couple weeks in a row, you might start worrying! Anyways, feel free to add to the discussion with your own. Maybe someone that you blame this week’s loss on?

    This week is headlined by the projected top receiver of the week, playing against a Houston defense that had been absolutely SMOKED by Peyton Manning and Donovan McNabb in the first two weeks of the season. To be fair though, Austin’s quarterback didn’t play all that great either…

      I had Schaub, Shiancoe AND Best in my starting lineup. Actually my other players (Mendenhall, Floyd, both Mosses) did well enough that I would have won if only I had started Jamaal Charles instead of Best. But injuries are impossible to predict, so I’m trying not to kick myself too hard on that one.

      Is MJD just taking up space on my starting line up?

      • Nathan 8:15 pm on September 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        No! Jones-Drew is still an elite fantasy RB. He won’t go on like this forever.

        • e-roc 6:57 am on September 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          …and by that I suppose you mean he’ll have one 100-yard game this season…. The JAX offense is more anemic than the Lions, Bills, Bucs, Raiders, Seahawks and Rams.

      • Brandon 8:19 am on September 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        At this point he is, but unless you have better options, he’ll have to stay there. The upside is just too good with him. Who are your other running backs?

        • Nathan 10:23 am on September 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I disagree. The Jaguars don’t light it up, but they aren’t on the level of those teams. I dont know how many 100 yard rushing games he will have, but rushing+receiving, I’d say plenty. And he will get in the end zone.

      • Brandon 8:18 am on September 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hard to say that you should have started Vick and Keller over Cutler and V-Davis, considering their performances in weeks one and two. Going forward though, you’ll have some tough questions!

      I went into MNF up by 20 points with Forte to play and my opponent just had A-rod……thanks a lot Forte, and the Packs didn’t even win to at least make it ok. STITCH UP

      • Brandon 9:51 am on September 29, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah not sure what the heck happened with Forte. Seems he’s only worth much when they use him in the passing game…so he might be a bit erratic.

    Check your line-up this morning and make sure the following players are NOT starting…because they’re NOT playing:

    – Pierre Garcon (hamstring)
    – Reggie Bush (broken fibula)
    – Knowshon Moreno (hamstring)
    – Jerome Harrison
    – Nate Burleson

    Oh, and probably don’t start Chargers RB Ryan Mathews either, even if he someone manages to limp onto the field.

     
    • James 11:24 am on September 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah, Mathews and Moreno down for me this week. So I am kind of hurting at R.B. I am starting Hightower in my 12 team league as he is the best option I have left. But I need help for a R.B. #2. Either one will be far from #2 status but here we go. Correll Buckhalter, Benjarvus Green-Ellis, C.J. Spiller, Darren Sproles.(Tolbert and Maroney were picked up before I can Grab them) any advice would really help. Thanks.

        Davis is low risk, high reward. Hernandez is high risk, potentially high reward. Stick with your main man Davis.

        Didn’t get to this one either. Who’d you start? Hopefully Collie 🙂

      Week 4 quarterback choice. Michael Vick or Tom Brady?. Dustin Keller vs Aaron Hernandez? Also im just wondering but hows your outlook on Peyton Hills and Darren McFadden. You think they’ll keep putting up these numbers?

      • Brandon 3:25 pm on September 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Haven’t yet started thinking about next weeks rankings, but will soon!

        As for McFadden and Hillis, I see DMC having much more staying power than Hillis.

    User Requested Player Ranks – Week 3 

    As I’ve mentioned previously, this year we’re trying something a little different when it comes to player rankings. We’re letting our readers decide which players show up on the lists. This means less work for me (or at least spreads out the work) while ensuring that all requested players show up on the lists and all quandaries are resolved. Hopefully last weeks rankings helped at least a few teams out there win their first match-ups…and hopefully you did better than me!

    Remember, if you have any Flex slot questions, continue to post those as comments and we can respond to them individually. Anyways, feel free to start posting your line-up questions, along with any questions/comments about this new format. As usual, I’ve added some of the players from my own teams to get things started. For a permalink to the rankings for the week, view the Google Docs spreadsheet here.

     
    • Brian 3:09 pm on September 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Out of the 3 what 2 would you rather have on your roster (non-PPR).

      Mike Wallace (on my roster as only WR backup)
      Mark Clayton (FA)
      Demaryius Thomas (FA)

      My current starters are Jennings, Nicks, Knox. I need some depth obviously.

      And which defense do you like better this week:
      Pats vs Bills
      Bengals vs Panthers

      thanks for your time guys!

      • immaculatedeception.net 8:46 pm on September 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        -Clayton has been the go to guy for Bradford, and that should continue for at least a few games more.
        -Thomas had a good week 2, and would be worth nabbing now if possible, but may be inconsistent down the road.
        -I don’t know about Wallace at the moment, but I imagine he’ll be a better play once Roethisberger is back as the starter.

        -Pats are somewhat a better play(I’m starting them this week). Bills have nothing going for them on both sides of the ball, and could possibly be this year’s Rams.

      • Brandon 9:01 pm on September 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        At receiver, I like Wallace (should be solid when Big Ben returns) and Clayton – at least this week! I’m worried that DT could be very inconsistent, but that’s only based on one game, so who really knows.

        For your defense, the Bengals are probably your best bet. Jimmy Clausen will be starting for the Panthers and should throw at least one interception!

    • Mike 3:12 pm on September 21, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Reggie Bush
      Fred Jackson
      Devin Hester
      Hines Ward

      I’m especially interested in the last two, considering their week 1 and 2 performances. Which one takes their ‘A’ game forward? Which Devin Hester shows up?

      Deangelo Williams
      Cedric Benson
      Ronnie Brown

      I have Bush, and started him last weekend–obviously that isn’t happening again soon.

      • Brandon 9:14 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Not a fan of Hester or Fred Jackson this week. I’ve added all these players to the list though, so hopefully it answers your questions!

      Can you add:

      WR
      Mark Clayton

      Jericho Cotchery

      TE
      Jason Witten
      Kellen Winslow

      League 1:
      RB Jamaal Charles
      RB Jason Snelling
      RB Jerome Harrison
      WR Robert Meachem (wow, what a disappointment so far)
      RB C.J. Spiller (can’t put him in anyways)
      RB Michael Bush (don’t want to put him in cuz McFadden is on fire)
      WR Mike Williams (SEA) (disappointment on the road; playing @ home against the Chargers)
      WR Legadu Naane (disappointment at home; playing on the road against the ‘Hawks)
      TE Vernon Davis

      – This is my 14-team league, so that’s why you seen the players I have – there is also no waiver wire in this league, which is why I snapped up Snelling quickly!!! 😉
      – Need help on deciding on two RBs
      – Need help on deciding on two WRs
      – My flex is WR/RB/TE – should I keep Davis in – he’s been steady; avg. 8 FPP … when does he break into the endzone? Do I put a WR/RB in here?

      League 2:
      WR Marques Colston
      WR Jacoby Jones
      WR Mike Williams (TB)
      WR Brandon Lloyd
      WR Terrell Owens
      WR Pierre Garcon (ugh)

      – I’ve got Colston and Jones in right now; thinking about Colston and Williams (TB)

      League 3:
      WR Greg Jennings
      WR Austin Collie
      WR Percy Harvin
      WR Mike Williams (SEA)
      WR Naanee
      WR Mike Thomas
      WR Brandon Tate

      – you get return yard points; Tate is good in this (he’s my 3rd best FPP WR right now – Collie, Naanee, Tate, Jennings – in that order are my top 4 – Jennings is #4!!! WHAAA)
      – pick 2
      – starting RB’s are Steven Jackson, LeSean McCoy; flex is Ronnie Brown – do I keep Ronnie in or put in a WR?

      • Nero 11:46 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Haven’t seen some of my players added – I’d like to see where the following lie:

        RB Jerome Harrison
        RB Jason Snelling
        WR Louis Murphy

        • Brandon 1:37 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          These three are on there now. Let me take a look at the rest now 🙂

        Think they’re all on there now…let me know if I missed anyone!

        • Nero 2:19 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I think you are selling Jason Snelling short here. I wouldn’t bench Snelling this week over C.J. Spiller; but I don’t have that predicament. I have the choice of Jerome Harrison or Jason Snelling – or I could start both and have Vernon Davis on the bench as my WR/RB/TE flex position? What do you think about that? (btw, it’s my League 1 info I posted earlier)

      • Brandon 2:25 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Snelling’s hard to rank here. He got two carries in week one while backing up Michael Turner, then went off in a big way when Turner gets hurt. Now Turner should be back, so it’s hard for me to believe that Snelling just all of a sudden cuts into a decent share of Turners carries as long as he’s healthy. As for Spiller, the coach claims that he’ll get more carries as the season progresses, which could start this week.

        If I’m picking between Harrison and Snelling though, I’m going with Harrison. If the Saints get out to a big lead against the Falcons, who knows how much Atlanta will even run the ball.

        I’m a little confused about Vernon Davis…but either way, he should be starting over any of those other guys (Spiller, Harrison, Snelling) if you have the choice.

        • Nero 2:36 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Brandon – you got to figure in that Norwood is on IR now; and Snelling is the RB2 in ATL … also Snelling is a much better pass catching back than Turner – agreed?

          I just think – in my situation – I have two RB spots to use this week:
          Charles is in for sure, so that leaves 1 spot with Snelling, Spiller, Harrison, Bush vying for that spot – as you also mention that there is no way in hell I’m benching VD. So, with that, I think I’m leaning on two choices at RB2: Snelling on the road against New Orleans or Harrison on the road against Baltimore … hmmm; Baltimore DEF is gonna be tough @ home, especially first game @ home, correct? I think Delhomme is out still in CLE, which puts a damper on the passing attack – having Seneca in there …

          so tell me one last time, Snelling or Harrison

          – btw, this is a good debate topic! 🙂

      • Brandon 2:50 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah I hear you, but I’m still not sold. Jerome Harrison is the starter and will be playing in potentially a close game all afternoon. Snelling + Norwood only got 4 carries combined in week one and if the Falcons return to that % split at the position, Snelling better make the best of those few carries! Maybe they split up the carries more even though to ensure Turner is really healthy…it’s a gamble. Good luck either way 🙂

          Marshall over Bryant? I was figuring the opposite with Miami vs NYJ.

      • Brandon 10:49 am on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        It was close, but with Darrelle Revis out for the Jets, I figured Marshall would stand a better chance. Bryant’s two catch performance last week tempered my enthusiasm for the rookie a bit as well.

      How do you guys feel about a Vick-DeSean connection if I were to trade for Jackson? I am in a desperate position in my league that has an f’d up scoring system at 6pt=every td and 20yds=1 pt (rush/receive) and 50 yds=1 pt (pass). I have Rice and SJax .. as well as Jennings and thats it. I am getting murdered by having the best 2 all purpose backs that can’t score! I need to make a move for a playmaker like DeSean Jackson. Do you agree?

        Harrison
        Snelling
        Moreno
        Tomilinson

        I’m leaning towards Hightower and Moreno right now. On another note my receivers are
        Ochocinco, Louis Murphy (rolled the dice on him last week and won!), Braylon Edwards and Crabtree. I want to to pick up D thomas off waivers by either dropping tomilinson or crabtree what do you think?

        • Brandon 1:36 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          Just added those guys. Go with Moreno and Hightower, as you were thinking. At receiver, I wouldn’t make a move quite yet for Thomas. Let him prove himself another week, while giving Crabtree another week to redeem himself.

        Wow, interesting scoring system there. I’d go with Ray Rice and Frank Gore at running back, who will both get a lot of attempts/targets, etc. At receiver go Miles Austin and Reggie Wayne, with Roddy White at the Flex spot.

        Now that I’ve given my suggestions, how has the scoring actually been working out in that league? 🙂 Are receivers worth a lot more than running backs or vice versa? Or are they about equal? Just curious.

        • nicolo 2:29 pm on September 22, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          its an espn league and rbs are always projected as more then wrs point wise but its been pretty equal. gore had 64 rice 37 wayne 31 austin 39

        Just added them. I’d still start Jennings over Collie. He’s the primary receiver in a passing offense that should improve, while Collie is still the third option for Peyton Manning. If Collie puts up another touchdown though and Jennings is held out of the end zone, I may have to change my tune next week 🙂

      Do I stay with Gonzales for the third week hoping he breaks through although Matt Ryan has had problems with the NO D in the past?

      • Brandon 10:18 am on September 23, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I think I might roll the dice with Hernandez at this point, especially with the Bills in town. I have a feeling the Patriots will be out to score as many points as possible after the criticism they got for last week’s performance. Who am I kidding though, I would expect Joe Gibbs to be able to make a more educated decision than a lowly blogger! 🙂

      looking for advice, flex player ppr league and pts for special teams,
      danny amendola, cj spiller, j. stewart, or mike tolbert for flex position, and possibly naanee?

      • Brandon 11:52 am on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Mike Tolbert for sure. He’s expected to start and should see the goalline carries as well.

      need a little help with my flex spot (maybe my WR starters), im in an espn PPR league (Passing and Rushing TDs are 6, Return yards count):

      Tony Romo, Adrian Peterson, Darren McFadden, Louis Murphy (flex), Marques Colston, Dez Bryant, Vernon Davis, Gostkowski, Eagles.

      Bench: McNabb, Brandon Jackson, Fred Taylor, Dwayne Bowe, Johnny Knox, Jacoby Jones

      What do you think? thanks

      Should I start Tolbert, Naane, or Knox in my flex position? only yards from scrimmage and scores count.

      • Brandon 10:43 am on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I think as long as Tolbert starts, you go with him. If for some reason the team feels Ryan Mathews is healthy enough to play, then maybe go with Knox. However, Tolbert has the greatest chance of finding the endzone. Good luck!

      Steve Smith (Giants) please!

      • Brandon 10:19 am on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Done. Of the three NYG wide outs, he’s my least favorite this week, but I have a feeling it’ll be a coin-flip (three sided?) each week as to who does the best from that group unfortunately.

      LeSean McCoy and Philip Rivers please

      Could you add Roy Williams at WR and Tampa Bay and Chicago at DEF? Thanks!

      So, question – I’m struggling at WR. I have Garcon, Mason, and Nannee. Lee Evans is available on my waiver wire. Should I pick him up? If so, who should I drop from this list?

      • Brandon 11:59 am on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I wouldn’t pick him up. Quoting from Yahoo’s player notes on Evans:

        “Sep 23 In 12 career games against this week’s opponent, the Patriots, Evans has 31 catches and one TD. He hasn’t had a 20-yard catch against them since 2005, Jerry Sullivan of The Buffalo News reports.

        Recommendation: While we’re a little more excited about Evans following the switch from Trent Edwards to Ryan Fitzpatrick, Evans struggled at times with both quarterbacks last season — he had just eight catches in one five-game stretch with Fitzpatrick at quarterback. Evans’ numbers should improve from a horrible first two weeks simply because Fitz likes to take more shots down the field, but you also might not want to expect a miraculous turnaround against a Bill Belichick defense in Week 3.”

      Please add Steven Jackson and Indy defense. Thanks.

    • matt 11:56 am on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      DeSean Jackson doesn’t make the list? Should I start Austin Collie over DeSean this week?

      • Brandon 2:01 pm on September 24, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        He does now…just had to ask 🙂 Go with DeSean for sure.

      How about San Fran’s defense this week, I’m torn between them and Green Bay

        I like SF over GB this weekend

          Yea, that’s who I was leaning towards too. Thanks

      Te ppr league
      Mercedes lewis or brent celek?

      • Brandon 2:22 pm on September 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        They’re on the list. I’m not a fan of Celek these days until Vick figures out how to use the tight end. They’re both around the same rank though.

    • George 11:03 am on September 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Can you add Carnell Williams to the list? Thanks.

      • Brandon 2:24 pm on September 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Put him on there. Not feelin’ Cadillac this week against a solid Steelers run defense.
