        It was funny because my buddy came over to watch the Patriots game on Sunday and we were playing each other in the first round of the playoffs. He immediately wanted to check his roster and make sure he had a guy in his line-up and when I tried to check for him on all my laptops, none of them could bring up the Yahoo page. I thought my wireless router had screwed up or something, but apparently it was Yahoo. Luckily for him he had the right guy in anyways (even though he ended up losing anyways!) but it was pretty funny

    Yahoo’s (new?) weekly Flex position rankings 

    I’m not exactly sure how long it’s been available, but this week I just noticed that Yahoo is offering Flex rankings in addition to their normal weekly position rankings. The rankings aren’t done by their usual experts, but by something called theĀ Crystal Ball Composite. The rankings also assume a flex position that is WR/RB/TE, which is good for leagues that allow tight ends in the spot. In the past, people have asked me to do something similar, but I’ll continue to just respond to flex-related questions in the comments. Anyways, check out Yahoo’s flex rankings if you want!

    Yahoo’s Twitter Intelligence 

    Just noticed a new feature for all of those using Yahoo! Fantasy Football. If you go to the Research tab, you’ll see a new sub-tab called Twitter Intelligence. If you click that, you can see all tweets mentioning players on your team. You can then select which specific players to search for (Show tweets for:), whether it’s just your starting roster or even just your quarterbacks or something (note: I’m not sure this filtering functionality is working quite yet.)

    This is a great tool to use on Sunday morning/afternoon, right before game time, so you can keep an eye on the health of your players and see if make sure they’re playing. Twitter is where you’ll hear most news first, so it’s great to have an fishbowl to look into and see updates for just your players (assuming everyone spells their names correctly!)

          Apparently Jonathan Dwyer doesn’t read our blog and ended up stealing all of Redman’s thunder! Hopefully you still salvaged the win (or started Lynch against my advice.)

          • straightcashhomie 4:33 pm on October 11, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            NOPE. Started Redman per your advice but luckily Jahvid Best came up with a big game to make up for it.

            • Brandon 4:43 pm on October 11, 2011 Permalink

              Glad to hear it. You can probably ditch Redman from here on out, especially when Mendenhall returns.

            • straightcashhomie 4:46 pm on October 11, 2011 Permalink

              I picked up Jackie Battle? from KC as a backup but now…Ray Rice is off his Bye week so Ray Rice and Jahvid Best should doo….now what to do in my flex spot?:

              Darrius Heywerd-Bey
              Victor Cruz
              Deion Branch
              or Jackie Battle

              Marshawn Lynch is my other option but he has a BYE as well.

        I’m having a hard time reading this comment. Let me rewrite it for readability:

        “Is dropping Tim Hightower for guys like K.Hunter or Daniel Thomas a good move?? Not taking to being Shanahaned very well..Esp. because I know better-Anyway thoughts are appreciated. And which WRs would you plug in this week-VJax(hamstring),R.White,Holmes and Nate Washington-Need 2.”

        • Brandon 11:37 am on October 6, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          To answer the question, you may end up dropping Hightower for Daniel Thomas, but don’t do it this week. Hightower is on a bye and Thomas is banged up. Wait until they both play another game before making the move to make sure it’s the right move. As for your wide receivers, if Vincent Jackson plays, go him and White. If V-Jax is out, go with Santonio Holmes instead, who should have a big game against a terrible Patriots defense.

            Brandon would you rather start David Nelson or Preston Parker this week ? Im running all 3 of my RBS out there this week ( Jacobs, Blount, Benjarvus Ellis ) – Do u think i should drop any of the RBS and just go with 3 WRS ( Mike Wallace + 2 ^^ ) ???

            • Brandon 2:07 pm on October 7, 2011 Permalink

              Keep an eye on Jacobs, as he may not even play this weekend. If that’s the case, I think that makes your decision easier. Otherwise, I think I gamble on Preston Parker over Nelson this week. Nelson has a tough match-up, while Parker’s is great.

      Yeah that twitter intel thing looks pretty cool! Will be great for injury checking.

      Having trouble sin my PPR money league again. RBs are Wells, Gore, Sproles, and Best. Pick 2. The lineup decisions in this league are killing me (Sat Gore and Wells last week). HELP!

      • Brandon 2:05 pm on October 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Leaning towards Wells and Gore, but it’s really close between Gore and Sproles. You don’t have a flex spot for Sproles? He was designed for that spot in your lineup!

        • Squish 2:14 pm on October 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Yeah I hear that. Unfortunately because it is a 14 team league there is only 1 RB and 1 Flex spot. I’m working my ass off to get a trade done but its a big money league and everyone is scared it seems. Currently I’m trying to work out two of the above for Ray Rice (perfect time to strike during bye week trouble). Do you think that would be a worthwhile trade? Another option would be to upgrade at WR2 by trading one of the above and Marshall for Calvin Johnson. I see less gain in that trade even with Miami’s QB problems but it would get me through his bye week.

          • Brandon 2:27 pm on October 7, 2011 Permalink | Reply

            Hmm, I think getting Calvin Johnson would be pretty awesome. Who are your other receivers? From Wells/Sproles/Gore to Rice has to be less of an upgrade than upgrading from a decent WR to Megatron, right?

            • Squish 4:53 pm on October 7, 2011 Permalink

              WRs are White and Marshall then a huge dropoff after that (Kevin Walter is my bye week replacement this week). The team is actually pretty good for a 14 team league it just hasn’t performed well as of yet and misplays at RB are killing me.

              My team

              QB – Eli, Schaub
              RB – Gore, Best, Wells, Sproles, Jackie Battle
              WR – White, Marshall, Ward, Simpson, Sanzenbacher, Walter
              TE – Gonzo

              Team I’m aiming at:

              QB – Bradford, Orton
              RB – Rice, Moreno, T. Jones, Ricky Williams
              WR – Megatron, Steve Smith (Car), MSW, Jenkins, Damian Williams, Parker Preston
              TE – Olsen, Shiancoe

              The only players I can really target are Rice, CJ and Smith. The rest won’t help me. Starting to think I should just try trading with another team.

      Against the Jets and with Woodhead doubtful, is it too early to give Stevan Ridley a bye-week start over someone maybe less risky but with less upside (J-Stew, in this case)?

      • Brandon 10:00 am on October 9, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, I’d go Ridley over Stewart. I think the Pats run a lot against the Jets today.

    • Need some help!!!!! 12:09 pm on October 8, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      My Team– Looked good once upon a time and many injuries ago..
      Matt Hasselbeck QB
      Brandon Jacobs RB
      Mike Tolbert RB
      Roddy White
      Vincent Jackson WR
      Jimmy Graham TE
      Neil Rackers K
      Tennessee Titans Def/ST
      Ben Roethlisberger QB
      Felix Jones RB DAL
      Tim Hightower RB WAS
      Nate Washington WR
      Santonio Holmes WR
      Aaron Hernandez TE
      Off to a rough start and need some advice.. I play in a league that doesn’t trade much or at all. Jacobs doesn’t look good and I need RB help. If no trades come through who should I look to drop??

    • james hance 9:51 pm on October 8, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      sproles or stewart?

      • Brandon 10:01 am on October 9, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Sproles over Jonathan Stewart (that’s who you mean right?)

    • Need some help!!!!! 11:00 pm on October 8, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Should I drop N. Washington and pick up K. Hunter,SF of Ryan Grant??

    • Eddie 9:43 am on October 9, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Need a last minute TE pickup for today. Should I grab Scott Chandler or James Casey (neither ideal but in a tight spot here..). Thanks

      • Brandon 10:01 am on October 9, 2011 Permalink | Reply

        Chandler. Good luck!

        • Eddie 10:12 am on October 9, 2011 Permalink | Reply

          Thanks! One more: should I start Addai vs KC (notwithstanding what they did to Peterson last week), Benson @ JAC, or McGahee vs SD? I’m leaning Addai, possibly against my better judgement, because I also see him getting all the red zone attempts…

    Yahoo Fantasy Points Against 

    For all of you who use Yahoo! for your fantasy football leagues, they’ve added a new feature (at least I think it’s new?) this year called Fantasy Points Against. You can find it under the Research tab in your league and it’s very similar to the ESPN version that we previously listed on our Tools page. You can use this to see how each team has fared against different positions in terms of fantasy points allowed, so check it out! (More …)
