    Week 6 FAIL – It ain't easy bein' receive-y 

    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’s list is headlined by a group of young, top-tier receivers who were gaurenteed to be in starting line-ups after their performances last week. Let me just throw a couple numbers at you…

    Week 5
    – Miles Austin: 9 catches, 166 yards, 1 TD
    – Malcom Floyd: 8 catches, 213 yards, 1 TD
    – Hakeem Nicks: 12 catches, 130 yards, 2 TD
    Total: 39 catches, 509 yards, 4 TD

    Week 6
    – Miles Austin: 2 catches, 12 yards
    – Malcom Floyd: 2 catches, 15 yards
    – Hakeem Nicks: 3 catches, 8 yards
    Total: 7 catches, 35 yards

    Insane.

    Note: In case you’re interested, I made a new, master list of FAILs for the season, so check it out!

    (More …)

      Miles Austin would’ve had a ton of yards and a touchdown but that got called back because of a penalty. And Floyd got injured.

      • Brandon 11:14 am on October 18, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, I mention the Floyd injury on the list. Just shows the inconsistency at the WR position sometimes I guess!

      • Sloth 12:01 pm on October 18, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Austins stats would have been about 65 yards and a score.
        not stellar but not bad either.
        its his own fault though. he was flagged for offensive PI.

      This week in my money league, I faced the team tied with mine for first meaning the game was for sole first place.

      I had Scobee versus a team with TEN def and I had a 12 point lead. I lost by half a point 122.48 to 122.98 because of the titans last sack on the last Jacksonville drive with 51 seconds remaining in the game. FML.

      • Brandon 2:51 pm on October 20, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Probably wouldn’t have happened if Jags didn’t call unnecessary time out at end and allow Titans to score. They could have run out the clock 🙂 However, that last minute CJ touchdown made me win a league, so I’m pretty pumped about that!

          Having trouble. I have Patrick Crayton and Roy Williams (Currntly in a WR slot) dont know who to start there. Plus I have Le Sean McCoy at running back and Matt Forte in my flex. I m thinking whould I take out McCoy entirely put Forte in RB slot and shove Crayton in my flex or leave the running backs alone and just swap out Crayton and Williams. At TE I have gates and dont know how hes going to do plus Chris Cooley is my back up and hes got a concussion, dont know if I sould pick up another TE. And lastly should I drop Austin Collie entirely and pick up a WR now that there are some decent ones? Need some advice Brandon.

          My line up:
          QB AARON ROGERS
          WR ROY WILLIMAS
          WR BRANDON LLOYD
          RB LE SEAN MCCOY
          RB MICHAEL TURNER
          TE ANTONIO GATES
          W/R MATT FORTE

          BENCH:
          CHRISH COOLEY
          DESEAN JACKSON
          PATRICK CRAYTON
          BYE LADANIAN TOMLINSON

    User Requested Player Ranks – Week 6 

    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 match-ups and hopefully this week’s do the same!

    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. This week I’ve kicked off the lists with the top five players from last week at each position. For a permalink to the rankings for the week, view the Google Docs spreadsheet here.

      Could you please add: Roethlisberger and Schaub; Mendenhall, Charles and Best; Ward, Floyd and Santana Moss; Shiancoe and Pettigrew.

      Also, I have the Vikings defense. Do you recommend I pick up another D/ST to switch in/out depending on matchups?

      • Brandon 3:41 pm on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Added those players, so take a look.

        As for defenses, the Vikings defense is the 26th ranked defense in my league, so not sure it’s even worth hanging on to them. I’d just pick up a defense every week depending on the match-ups if your league doesn’t have a limit on the number of moves you can make (or charge you for them!)

        I’m not expecting him to have a whole lot of impact. He could catch a few passes each game, but it’s time for the new guys to shine (Tate, Hernandez, Gronkowski.) You might pick him up just in case Brady takes a liking to him, but don’t expect Randy Moss touchdown numbers or anything 🙂

        All of them should be on there now.

        As for your tight end, I have a feeling Aaron Hernandez is the one you’ll want to keep. Moeaki seems like a 4-5 reception, touchdown every other game kind of guy to me. Hernandez has the ability to break it open for 100+ yards and a possible score in any given week. People on Twitter are loving Moeaki, but I still prefer Hernandez, especially with Moss now back to the Vikings.

        Added them. Collie is tricky as he’s still nursing an injury. Jennings could be big with Jermichael Finley no longer stealing looks, but it depends on whether Aaron Rodgers plays or not. McCoy looked good with his fractured ribs, so he should be good to go again this week!

    • matt 9:25 pm on October 14, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Could you add Kyle Orton vs NYJ, DeSean Jackson vs Atl, and Pierre Garcon @ Was? Thanks!

      • Brandon 9:03 am on October 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Added them. Orton is a tough one this week, as he’s playing a Jets defense that I can’t figure out. Looking at the stats, they’re the 10th worst pass defense in terms of yards allowed, but they’re the best pass defense in terms of completion percentage allowed. The Broncos have no running game though, so Orton will throw it 50 times. If he completes 25 of those and scores a few touchdowns, I think you’re in good shape!

        • Rob 11:35 am on October 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          And DeSean Jackson?

          • Brandon 11:40 am on October 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            Also a tough one, due to his inconsistency. Seems opposing teams sometimes key in on him and try to take him out of the gameplan, which could lead to some low scoring weeks, which you’ve already seen three times this year:

            http://www.fleaflicker.com/nfl/player?playerId=5324

            He always has the chance to break out for a huge 20-30 point week though and this week is no different.

          • matt 3:47 pm on October 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            Yeah, Jackson has been tough because he did awesome in weeks 2 and 3, and I can’t figure out if that’s because Vick was throwing the ball, or because they played Det and Jac. I was planning on sitting DeSean on a Kolb week in favor of B. Marshall or A. Collie. Is Collie really a better bet than Marshall this week? Should I trust DeSean?

      Would you recommend starting either:

      [Amendola, Crabtree or Bess] OVER [NY S.Smith, Nate Washington or Ricky Williams] in a 0.5 PPR?

      and [Kevin Walter or Brandon Tate] OVER Shonn Greene in a 1 PPR?

      • Brandon 11:07 am on October 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d probably start Amendola (lots o’ receptions) and Crabtree over Washington and Ricky Williams. Brandon Tate over Shonn Greene is intriguing as well. Would be a high risk, potentially high reward play though.

      Feeling any different about Aaron Rodgers now that he’s listed as “probable”? I’ve been tempted to sit him and give Roethlisberger the start for his big return, but I hate to think how stupid I’ll feel if Ben is rusty and Aaron Rodgers ends up playing like, well, Aaron Rodgers.

      • Brandon 10:56 am on October 16, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Adjusted Rodgers now and have him a few spots ahead of Big Ben. I’d probably stick with Rodgers, since we really have no idea how Roethlisberger will perform in his first game of the year. Good luck!

    The Wire – Week 6 pick-ups: Mark Clayton out for the year and Patriots players galore! 

    Here are your potential waiver wire pick-ups for week 6. I missed the mark a bit last week with the Sam Bradford prediction, but who knew the Rams would look so terrible against the Lions?! Anyways, this week’s top players are Danny Amendola, who becomes the top receiver in St. Louis with Mark Clayton suffering a season-ending injury. I like Brandon Tate and Aaron Hernandez now that Randy Moss is out of town. Also, Roy Williams and Felix Jones seem to be starter-worthy fantasy players now. Anyways, take a look and see if any of these guys can help your squad overcome some injuries and bye weeks…

     
    • Brian 7:11 pm on October 11, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Need some help fellas. Got crushed by injury god this week with Rogers – Finley – Clayton. Like to hear who you recommend me grabbing from waivers:

      Finley Replacements:
      Pettigrew
      Hernandez
      Moeaki
      O. Daniels

      Clayton replacements:
      Crabtree
      Gaffney
      Britt
      St. Johnson (Buf)
      Cribbs
      Knox

      Luckily I have Big Ben coming back so he will serve if Rogers can’t play. I have been trying to make a trade for WR depth for weeks with nobody budging so I don’t hold much hope but will keep trying. Thanks for your time!

          Pettigrew/Hernandez
          Crabtree over Steve J

      • Squish 3:36 am on October 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d grab Crabtree for sure. With the new offensive coordinator in town he’s seeing a lot more targets than before. It’s only a matter of time before he matches the numbers people were expecting of him before the season.

        At TE I like Pettigrew more than the others listed due to him being a favorite target of hill. He’s currently 8th among TEs in targets which is a great factor to go by. Also consider adding Heath Miller if he’s out there since he’s an elite (top 5) TE when Big Ben is around.

      • Brandon 8:47 am on October 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I agree with “J” on this one, but favor Aaron Hernandez slightly over Pettigrew, just because of the potential upside now that Randy Moss is out of town. Grab Crabtree though.

    • TJ 10:07 pm on October 11, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Hey Guys, like everyone else here I got pummeled yesterday (Clayton, Foster, Schaub starting….). But’s it’s only my first loss, so life isn’t all bad. A few questions:

      WR – All these guys are available FAs – who to pick for Clayton? (I was thinking Tate, but really not as tuned into the NE scene as you, Brandon…) Have: White, Collie, Floyd, Lloyd
      – Tate, R Williams, M Williams, Bess, Britt, Amendola, MSW, Braylon

      QB: Time to pick up a Schaub backup, would prefer a longer-term option: Freeman, Young, Smith – leaning toward Freeman, but just don’t love any of them. Also available are Hill, Hasselback, Garrard, Oakland QBs, Fitzpatrick & Cassel…. really bottom feeding here. One possibility might be to offer to trade to a fellow owner: She has Brees AND Rodgers (!) – and the rest of her team is weak, especially at WR, could maybe offer one of my WRs for Rodgers (tho hard to pick which one…..). Ideally she’d be clueless enough to take a one-for-one trade of Schaub for Rodgers, seeing how he’s concussed and all and she has no QB for wk 10, but I don’t know if that will fly.

      RB – Ryan Torain and the ‘Skins line seemed a little underwhelming yesterday. Still worth holding? Lynch, Spiller, BJGE available.

      Much thanks, as always.

      • Squish 3:49 am on October 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I’d take a flyer on Tate but I don’t think you really need any help at Wr. The guy you pick up will see little playing time. Out of those options, only MSW has as much upside as Tate. Brandon will definitely tell you to go with MSW.

        At QB it’s a tossup. I’d just play it week to week by matchup. None of those guys really stick out. Normally I’d lke Hill the best but CJ’s shoulder injury could greatly decrease his value. that being said, I think he’s going to get the Lions an NFL record for most passes to a TE in a season. (Currently at 71). That being said, I don’t like his matchups the next couple weeks and I’m betting Stafford will be back soon enough. I’d take Freeman and hope it works out.

        I think you have to hang with Torain at least until after next week. They play the horrible Indy run defense and he could be in for a huge day.

        Hah, Squish thinks he knows me so well, but unfortunately I can’t recommend Sims-Walker on this one. 🙂 I actually Brandon Tate in your situation, since you have enough starters at the position and are looking for upside primarily. If you wanted an instant starter though, Braylon Edwards and Roy Williams seem pretty solid.

        At quarterback, I think I like David Garrard the most due to the touchdowns he’s been throwing these days. At running back, stick with Torain for now.

          Thanks, for advice on the WRs, don’t need an immediate starter so may just sit on Tate for a while.
          Looks like the other owner is OK with trading me Rogers for Schaub….might come back to burn me in wk 10 when I face her and Schaub has Jac (or if Rodgers gets whacked again….), but right now I’m thinking even a banged up Rodgers is a better bet than Schaub, who is just not looking sharp lately

          What do you guys think of D’s this week – any bottom-feeders you think might shine? NE, Det, OAK, ATL, WAS, SEA…… a

            I just picked up Tennessee in one of my leagues and they should be decent if they’re available. Atlanta has been solid this year and they’ll be playing Kevin Kolb, who I would say the jury is still out on if he’s a legit NFL quarterback or not. I’d probably go with them out of the group.

      I think Heath Miller is worth adding this week now that Big Ben will be playing again. He’s consistently a top 5 TE when Big Ben is healthy. He’s widely available and with Big Ben shaking the rest off and missing Holmes as a target, I’d expect Miller to have the best stretch of fantasy numbers he’s ever seen from here on out.

      • Brandon 9:13 am on October 12, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Not sure about the whole top 5 TE thing with Heath Miller. Looking at his stats from the past few years (click the 2009, 5Y, 3Y, 2Y filters,) he seems to be around 8-12, so a borderline TE1 for a team. This year I expect more of the same, especially with the abundance of solid players at the position.

      I lost Clayton this week and was wondering who to pick up:
      Kenny britt, deion branch,mike thomas, steve johnson, dywane bowe,kevin walter, or bess

        Sorry we didn’t get to this before waivers cleared (at least I assume they did.) I like Steve Johnson, as it appears he’s become Ryan Fitzpatrick’s favorite target in Buffalo, but he’s on a bye this week so that won’t help you out a lot if you’re in a bind. Mike Thomas is alright in a PPR league, but won’t score a whole lot. On the other end is Kenny Britt, who probably won’t catch as many passes, but is finding the endzone with regularity these days. If you’re feeling especially risky, you could go with Dwayne Bowe, even with his terrible game of drops last week. The Chiefs play a terrible Houston pass defense and this could be a chance for Bowe to redeem himself.

      for “the fantasy football geek blog” I am shocked at your waiver wire pickups.. do you think we play in handicap leagues, nearly 90% of the players you listed are all rostered in my league and I can only assume the majority of others as well

      • sean 3:31 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Seriously, i count 3 players that are actually available in my main league. this list seems more suited for fantasy beginners.

        • Brandon 8:53 am on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          I don’t recall ever saying that we wrote this blog only for fantasy football experts. Plenty of beginners visit the site and checking the ownership percentages in Yahoo, it doesn’t appear that these players are owned in 90% of leagues. For example…

          – Danny Amendola: 29%
          – Deion Branch: 15%
          – Marcedes Lewis: 57%
          – Steve Johnson: 18%
          – Aaron Hernandez: 52%
          – Mike Hart: 5%

          If you want a comprehensive list to satisfy the experts, I’m sure the Talented Mr. Roto Matthew Berry or someone like him can help you out. This blog is mostly a place where people can ask questions, help others out, etc. Once we start getting paid the big bucks, then we’ll make a specific list of waiver wire adds ONLY for expert players, which only includes a few select players that we’re sure aren’t taken in the experienced leagues out there.

          Thanks for visiting though!

      Hey guys, can you give me some help evaluating this trade offer. Here is my team: Mcnabb, Vick & Freeman @ QB – Ray Rice, Pierre Thomas, Felix Jones, and Tolbert @ RB- Brandon Marshall, Ochocinco, B Lloyd, Brandon Tate, Nate Washington, & Vincent Jackson @ WR.

      We start 1 QB, 2 RB’s, 3 WR’s and a QB/WR/RB/TE Flex.

      I have been offered BJGE for Brandon Tate. What are your thoughts? I am leaning towards making the trade, because of injury worries for Thomas, and the emergence of Ryan Matthews. Thoughts?

      • Brandon 12:06 pm on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Hmm, not a huge fan of this trade. I think Tolbert should continue to see carries and should have nearly as much upside as Green-Ellis for the remainder of the year. It seems Felix Jones is emerging as a decent option at RB, so you can start him and Ray Rice at the position. Brandon Tate is all upside at this point and could end up being your flex play for the rest of the year. Maybe you can trade Nate Washington for BJGE? 🙂

        • Reed 12:19 pm on October 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          OK. Thanks for the help. I dont think he is taking Washinton for BJGE!!! And Washington does still have the Jags on the schedule twice. It hurts to even make that joke, i am a huge Jags fan!

          I posted the comment twice by mistake, my bad!

          Thanks for your help!

      Amendola or Roy Williams in a non-PPR league
      Furthermore, who would you start in week 6?

      Knox, Amendola, or R.Williams?

      • Brandon 9:07 am on October 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I think I’d gamble on Amendola to be honest. Even in a non-PPR league, the Rams are going to be getting pounded by the Chargers and I assume they’ll throw the ball about 50 times or so as they try to keep up. Amendola should see even more looks now that Mark Clayton is out for the year.

      • Brandon 9:09 am on October 15, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        However, the Seahawks are giving up a ton of passing hards and Jay Cutler is returning for the Bears. I’d say the highest risk/reward is Knox, but the safer bet is Amendola.
