    Week 7 FAIL – Dreadful Dallas 

    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 we have half a fantasy football team’s worth of Dallas Cowboys on the list, with their quarterback getting hurt, one of their running backs playing like he is hurt, and their top two receivers being shown up by a rookie.

    This week I made a minor change and included the entire season count of FAIL’s as a new worksheet in the spreadsheet, so you can click the “Season” tab and see where each player stacks up. As expected, drama-king himself, Brett Favre, leads the pack!

    Anyways, here are the rest of them…

    • QB woes 8:11 am on October 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I hate to say this but, Romo was my starter and now I have Henne as my back up. I picked up Bradford just in case kitna didn’t do go (which was average). My question, should I start Henne, Bradford, or pick up Kitna (he is available). Also an option, I was offered Matt Ryan for Roddy White, straight up trade. Roddy White has really been giving me the most of my point so, I am reluctant to trade. My WR depth isn’t shabby ( Nicks, Royal, Santana Moss, Welker and of course White). What should I do with the options I have for my QB and trade situation?

      • Brandon 8:32 am on October 28, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Do NOT give up Roddy White for Matt Ryan…that’s for sure. At quarterback, there seems to be a group of quarterbacks this week that make decent starts and can most likely be found on the waiver wire. Jon Kitna and Ryan Fitzpatrick lead the group, but Matt Cassel, David Garrard, Matthew Stafford and even your boy Chad Henne could put up solid numbers this week. Even Josh Freeman could have a good game this week. If you have the roster spots to do it, I’d pick up Jon Kitna and Ryan Fitzpatrick, starting Kitna this week, and seeing where things go from there. To be honest, there really aren’t many top-tier, consistent quarterbacks this year that are out-producing the rest of the league on a normal basis, so rotating some of these waiver wire guys each week probably isn’t the worst thing you could do 🙂

          Thanks Brandon, gut was to not trade White, thanks for the reassurance. I decided to drop bradford and pick up Fitzpatrick, lets hope he goes nuts this week like he did last week.

          Literally every one of my WR are on bye, except for Welker, so i need some solid numbers to win this week.

          I love the website redesign by the way…just don’t like that it is not Mobile-friendly.

    Of course you all had these guys on your active rosters!

    fantasy football top 7 for week 7

    Did anyone start multiple players on this list? I had 2 on my bench, but that’s not worth a whole lot…

    • Marques 12:23 pm on October 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I didn’t have any of these players on my roster, but of course I did face off against the guy that had Roddy White. It was great seeing Roddy in such a high scoring game and the Patriots/Chargers in such a low scoring mistake driven game (i.e. I had Welker and Crayton going).

    • Brandon 1:45 pm on October 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Adding to the amazing-ness is the efficiency of these guys. If Lee Evans catches two passes…he scores a touchdown. Britt is just slightly less efficient, requiring 2.3 catches for a score. McFadden rushes for 165 yards and 3 touchdowns on just 16 carries, while catching a touchdown on just two receptions. Roddy White was obviously slacking off, requiring over five catches to find the endzone 🙂

    • AtlantaJJ 4:20 pm on October 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I feel guilty because I sent a link to an article about Kenny Britt’s legal troubles to a fellow FF league member on Saturday so that she would be aware since he’s on her team. It appears she benched him as a result. I explicitly stated he would play but would not start. I’m afraid to go back to our message board now.

      • Brandon 4:24 pm on October 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Now you know how the fantasy football “experts” feel every Monday morning when they open their e-mail after handing out advice to tons of people, hah. But honestly, at first glance when I saw that Kenny Britt wasn’t starting I assumed they were saying he wouldn’t play. I had heard a rumor that he might sit out a game for misconduct or something, so maybe it was in the back of my mind. It’s the team owner’s fault though if they don’t do the proper research!

    • ceejay 8:30 pm on October 25, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I had 130 pts sitting the bench in the form of Britt, Fitzpatrick, Steve Johnson, and McFadden. Meanwhile, my 10 starters will get me only 90 pts (if 2 players do well tonight: Roy Williams and Ahmad Bradshaw).

    • Squish 3:04 am on October 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      Playing Seattle defense and Billy Cundiff almost universally this week won me about 5 games. Roddy White accounted for the rest 🙂

      Back at the top of my money league and basking in trade offers for my QB stable. I’ve maneuvered it so I have Eli, Carson, Stafford, and McNabb on my team at the same time. The guy with Favre and Kolb is practically begging me for one of them 🙂

      • Brandon 8:39 am on October 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        That’s a nice spot to be in…but why haven’t you traded one of those QB’s? Get some value for them while you can! Unless you start three quarterbacks, hah

        • Squish 11:52 pm on October 26, 2010 Permalink | Reply

          LOL well I started the season with Palmer, Eli and McNabb expecting one of them to break out but through 5 weeks none of them had been consistently good enough to garner trade interest. Seeing that stafford may start this week I went ahead and monopolized him too.

          To be honest, it’s really tough to get a trade done in this league. The best offer to date that I’ve had is Palmer and Foster for Colston and Holmes. Not exactly heaven. Right now I’m just hanging onto them to keep other teams from having them. My team as it stands is:

          QB – Eli, Palmer, McNabb, Stafford
          WR – White, Wayne, Williams (SEA), Cribbs, Hester, (1 pt per 15 return yards)
          RB – Rice, Foster, Best, Forsett
          TE – Heath Miller

          As you can plainly see, it’d be difficult for me to improve at WR given my trade bait. really, none of my QB’s could buy me a guy to upgrade at any position. My goal was to have a better TE after trading but nobody is open to deals.

          Which of those 4 QBs would you trade if given the option? And who would I target for a fair trade to upgrade at WR or RB?

          • Brandon 11:05 am on October 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            You could package Palmer and Mike Williams for an upgrade at WR, seeing as how they’re both coming off big games. Who does the guy with Favre/Kolb have for receivers…since he might not have a QB this week!

          • Squish 7:07 pm on October 27, 2010 Permalink | Reply

            The guy with Favre/Kolb has almost all elite WRs as he went value based draft and WRs hung around awhile. He managed AJ, Marshall, Colston, and now also has TO and Holmes. Other than Holmes it would be hard to get at one of his elites since they will score more in the flex spot than most RBs. It’s a 3WR and 1 flex league so he’s not sitting any of those guys. I personally don’t feel Holmes would improve my roster and I am first in the league so I hesitate to make any drastic moves.

            I offered him Palmer for Colston straight up which is about as fair as a single player deal will get. I’m waiting for a response. I’m not big at offering Williams since he’s had more targets than all of his WRs but Owens since Branch left. I think Williams could be a borderline WR1 the rest of the season. I might offer Cribbs and Palmer for a couple of his Wrs. Since it’s a return yardage league and he’s desperate he may bite. I’ll let you know when I hear the response to the first trade offer.

    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…

      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.

    • Robin Palm 4:37 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      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.

    • JP 4:56 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      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…

    • Tommy 5:40 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      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?
