Week 4 Pick-Ups


Pickups
Quarterbacks
Mark “Sexy” Sanchez – A pretty solid number two quarterback.
Shaun Hill - Plays STL this week.
Jason Campell - Better they say uh Kyle Orton



Running Backs
Correll Buckhalter – Has been quite productive in his role as the number 2 back in Denver.
Tashard Choice – Good play if one or both of the other Dallas backs are out.
Wide Receivers

Nate Burleson has 33 targets on season giving him the third most among wide receivers. He has 229 yards and 1 touchdown on the season.
Johnny Knox - I have not totally bought into him yet because of lack of targets (16). But if you are in need of a receiver to fill in for this weeks byes he has scored in the last two weeks and plays Detroit this week.
Mike Sims-Walker – Is slowly emerging as the Jaguars top receiving threat. He has 12 catches 187 yards and one touchdown on the season (He didn’t play in week 1).
For Deeper Leagues
Kelley Washington has had at least 40 yards in every game this season. Good pick-up for deeper leagues.
Pierre Garcon is bound to come back to earth! But if you are in a deeper league go ahead and pick him up.
Kenny Britt has been averaging 5 fantasy points per game.
Tight-ends

Vernon Davis – if you are in a ten-team league chances are you are set at tight end. Unless have Zach Miller plagued by JaMarcus “the Joke” Russell. Then you will be picking up Davis who had a huge game against Minn last week 7 catches 96 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Brian Celek has been phenomenal. 2 touchdowns and two 100-yard games this season.
Defenses
Broncos, Bengals, 49ers

Mark Sanchez Still Sexy and Other Observations


Mark Sanchez Still Sexy and Other Observations




Comeback tomorrow for a bunch of new post, including Hot/Not, Studs, Buy Low Sell High and more!

NFL Week 4 Rankings




I feel the Jets deserved to be ranked number one overall because they had a tougher schedule than the other 3-0 teams.
Rankings are very debatable who do you feel are the top 5 teams? Bottom 5 teams?

Should have ranked the Panthers a little higher or maybe lower? who knows anyway

This is why he is Brett Favre



Amazing game winning touchdown throw. He still has an arm on him. Or more like a machine gun that ball was on the money.

Judgement Day



You drafted them and for the first two weeks they have been a fantasy nightmare. First round picks are not suppose to be flustered by an elite run defense, they are suppose to run through brick walls, leap over linebackers, SCORE! But sadly here is a list a running backs whose worth will be reevaluated this week after 2 weeks of pathetic numbers.

Matt Forte - Plays a Seattle D that got torched by Frank Gore.

Clinton Portis - Plays Detroit (his status is questionable)

Steve Slaton - 3 fumbles in 2 weeks playing a Jaguar defense that forced 6 fumbles, he has a lot to prove. Not to mention his nemesis Chris Brown has had his career high against the Jaguars as a Titan. As I Slaton owner I an very uneasy about this week.

Brandon Jacobs - Plays a horrible, terrible, no good very bad Tamps defense. Owner would like to see him score, thats where his real value is.

NFL Week 3 Start/Sits



Week 3 Waiver Wire

Week 3 - Who's Hot and Who's Not

Bargain Basement Price - Willie Parker- Last Chance



He struggled against a fierce Titan Defense in week 1. In week 2 he struggled again against a reasonable Bears run defense.

He has pretty much no value at the moment. Now is the time to trade a drop candidate or pretty much anyone for Parker who will be facing the Bengals, Browns and Lions in the 3 of the next four games. A very low buy who may prove to hold value this season. Act now, you really have nothing to lose.

Chad Ochocinco fast as a Cheetah?





Ochocinco claims this is his cheetah and the photo is taken in his backyard. What is he doing with a cheetah?

My Trades Thus Far


Photo Credit

Week 1 before any games were played I traded Derrick Ward for Reggie Bush.I honestly believe if Bush gets 10 carries or more every week he will be a fantasy monster. He was a top 5 back last year before his injury.
This looked like a poor trade after week 1 but after week 2 let's compare their stats.

21 Carries> 17 Carries - Advantage Derrick Ward
94 Rushing Yards> 47 Rushing Yards - Advantage Derrick Ward
Rushing 1 TD= 1 Rushing TD- Tie
Receptions 3 < Receptions 8- Advantage Reggie Bush
Receiving Yards 26 < Receiving Yards 97 - Advantage Reggie Bush
Fantasy Points 17 =Fantasy Points 17 -Tie
Winner -Tie
I feel Bush has the edge though


Week 3 I traded Cadillac Williams for Brandon Jacobs. I find no real value in Williams and sought to pick up a stud at a low buy.

20 Carries (One less than Derrick Ward) < 32 Carries - Advantage Jacobs
106 Rushing Yards> 104 Rushing Yards - Advantage Williams
Rushing 1 TD= 0 Rushing TD - Advantage Williams
Receptions 7 < Receptions 2- Advantage Williams
Receiving Yards 56 < Receiving Yards 17 - Advantage Williams
Receiving TDs 1 > Receiving TDs 0 - Advantage Williams
Fantasy Points 10 < Fantasy Points 26 - Advantage Williams
Winner -ME haha

Based on the first 2 weeks Williams is the better running back. Take away his two scores and there is not much of a difference.
Jacobs scored 15 times last season I see no reason why he can't put up at least 10 this season. Also, Jacobs rushed over 40 yards in the first two weeks, while Williams rushed 97 week one and only 9 in week 2 against the Bills. Tampa has the second most pass attempts behind the Patriots because of their lack of defense so they are not the run team everyone anticipated. I see a lot of mediocre performances in Williams future. What do you guys think about my trades?

NFL Injuries

Eli Manning / Mark Sanchez / Toyota Commercial

NFL Week 3 Pick-Ups

My NFL Week 3 Picks



Record 21-11 as compared to Yahoo Experts



Green Bay Packers at St. Louis Rams
San Francisco 49ers at Minnesota Vikings
Jacksonville Jags at Houston Texans- done with loyalty, they didn't even show up last week.
Washington Redskins at Detroit Lions
Atlanta Falcons at New England Patriots - It is hard for me picturing the Pats to lose at home but this 1-1 team could easily be 0-2. The Falcons have scored twice as many TDs than the Pats this season with 6, so I'm going to base my pick on that.
Tennessee Tits at NY Jets
Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles
NY Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
Chicago Bears at Seattle Seahawks
Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders
Miami Dolphins at San Diego
New Orleans at Buffalo
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals
Indianapolis Colts at Arizona Cardinals- The Colts would be nothing without Manning.
Carolina Panthers at Dallas Cowboys

Mark Sanchez is a Sexier Quarterback than Tom Brady and Other Observations

Week 3 Wavier Wire Pick-Ups

Quarterbacks

Byron Leftwich ranked 9th overall in ESPN leagues.

Mark Sanchez has be reliable good option for deeper leagues.

Wide Receivers 

Steve Smith (NYG)- 214 yards and 1 score. The Giants number one receiver. 

Mario Manningham - 208 yards and 2 scores.

Johnny Knox at least 70 yards in first two games(152) and one score.

Laurent Robinson leads Rams in targets.

Tight-Ends

Todd Heap back to back weeks with scores.

Defense

Broncos Defense - Play Oakland this week. This season they have allowed 13 points and forced 5 turnovers.

Kickers

Lawrence Tynes-Is my kicker in 90% of my leagues and the number 1 fantasy kicker so far. 

Available in 84% of ESPN leagues.

Joe Nedney

Jason Hanson



Buy Sell Week 3

Buy

Tom Brady nothing stellar in week 2. After coming off a 216 game one interception and no TDs, Brady’s value will never be lower. He has a stellar schedule week 14-17.

Leon Washington – He hasn’t done too much but he had recorded 29 carries for 118 yards. A nice low buy, he should become more involved in the Jets passing game as the season continues.

Brandon Jacobs

Matt Forte

Steve Slaton - buy very low

Sell

David Garrard coming off a good week 2 there won’t be many other performances like that this season.

Derrick Ward – With the lack of a defense in Tampa, they have been forced to stray from their running game and pass their ass off.

Cadillac Williams

Week 2 - The Week from Hell


My one win....

I went 1-10 in my fantasy teams this week after 6-6 last week. 9 of those losses were within 10 or less. I made a few bad decisions on who to start (benching Rivers cost me quite a bit of my games, and benching Clark cost me one, also one me my only win) , and was punished for drafted Forte and Slaton on the same teams. Hasselbeck getting hurt didn't help either. My biggest reason for losing were receivers. I had my receivers do well in one league with Roddy White and Steve Smith (NYG) and Deshaun Jackson on my bench. But I had Greg Jennings and Santana Moss against Colston and V.Jackson which was a 37 point favor in their direction (So far it seems like everyone is having a great day against me, their luck will change muhaha) . A lot my guys have under achieved thus far Forte cough cough. I am not happy. But if you are struggling at the beginning of the season like me don't fret! I went 3-0 last season in a league and that was the only league I missed the playoff finishing with 5 wins. I went 0-3 and won championships last year. The first few weeks well wins are important what is most important is moving the right roster moves, understanding who you can count on, and realizing what Defenses are no nos and which ones are cake walks.

I was kinda lax on the updates here last week. I thought I was set. Now I realize I got some tweeking to do not too much though. I am confident in my teams now I know where my players stand so start sit should be down pat next week.

I try to have the best team possible, as all should strive for. Last year I had a starting lineup high 90s and a bench high 90s. I had the proof, I'll post it when I get around to it.

Any ways best of luck

If your week 2 was hell like mine and your ego has been bruised remember it is a long season. The first few weeks are like getting your cast taken off your broken arm. It feels funny at first, stinks, it is awkward but eventually it is as if it was never broken. Next week will be better, learn from your mistakes.

Update- Hasselbeck Lies!


He has a fractured rib. Doesn't look like he is expected to play in week 3. Look for another option if he is your starting QB.

I have a pretty good sized article for tomorrow. A review of the first two weeks. Along with wavier wire picks up, drops, buy, sell etc.

Ochocinco Take A Lambeau Leap of Faith




Watch the Packer fan give the finger! Oh Ocho was tweeting all week how he would do it, glad to see he is good for his word.

Matt Hasselbeck



Via his Twitter Matt posts this picture along with a message that he is going to be all right.

Good new for fantasy owner who he burned this week leaving the game injured.

Watching Week 2

Is pure torture!

Next week I will have a better grasp on things, and make up for the lack of predictions this week.

You can lose the first 3 weeks of fantasy football and still win a championship! I did last year, no worries.

Best of Luck

How'd ya'll do?

Week 2 Advice

Posted using ShareThis

Week 2 Sleeper




Bush is available in 80% of ESPN leagues. He will split carries with Darren McFadden this Sunday playing against a Kansas City defense that gave up 198 yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground in week 1. Bush is worth a flex in all league formats.

Matthew Berry Makes an Excellent Point


I wouldn't dare to trade Tony G. But if I could deal any other stud Tight End for a quality back I would do it in a heartbeat.

NFL Week 2 Predictions

Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta Falcons

Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions - The Lions would be so much better if they still had Kitna. In the betting spread I'd take Detroit. 
Betting Odds

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Green Bay Packers - The Packers should have a double digit win.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - Gotta go with my team again, I may be at the game. Cardinals were 0-5 last year when playing East coast teams away.

Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs

New York Giants Dallas Cowboys - I will take the Giants for $125 thank you. (Cowboys got destroyed by Tampa's run game last week, they are in for trouble this week.)

Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins - Indy to windy! I mean win.

Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos - Playing at home, the Broncos work their magic again.

Baltimore Ravens vs. San Diego Chargers- Philip cry me a River

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Chicago - Sorry Jay things don't go your way.

Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers - Don't Hassel the beck! He's back. If Seattle can stop Action Jackson they should have problem with Frank Gore the cog of 49er offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Buffalo Bills - I just don't like the Bills plain and simple. They are like that girl that looks smoking hot, you go to say hello and decide ugh better not after seeing her face. They are the ultimate tease. After a 5-1 start last season they Bills finished last in the AFC East. Not to mention last weeks loss against the Patriots.

St. Louis Rams vs. Washington Redskins -Whaaat?

Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans -What is a Texan to a Titan? Nothing, nothing, you ain't winning nothing.

New Orleans vs. Philadelphia - Hurt McNabb. Saint will gobble them up like a plate of ribs. I think it will be close though.

New England vs. NY Jets

LT Will Not Play Against the Ravens


Look for Darren Sproles and Michael Bennett to split carries. Darren Sproles will make for an interesting flex play this week.

Bad News for Steve Slaton Owners

    Every Steve Slaton owners worse nightmare!
Gary Kubiak (Texans head coach) said he'd like for Brown to have 10-12 carries every game.  (The Texans' official site.)

"We'd love to have Chris come out of a game with 10 or 12 carries all the time for our team," Kubiak said. "But we haven't been past the 20-carry mark as a football team in a while, so hopefully we're able to run the ball somewhat effectively, so we get to see them (Brown and Steve Slaton) both. If he's carrying it 10 or 12 times, then I bet we're carrying it 35 times, so that's something we'd like to come out of the game with." Brown carried three times for 15 yards against the Jets last Sunday.  It has yet to be seen which running back will be lined up in the red zone.
This is bad news for disappointed Slaton owners. Meaning he may only see 10-15 carries a game himself and might concede goal line carries to Brown. (Disregard the nonsense from Kubiak who thinks he will run it 35 times a week)

After a terrible week one for Slaton, it only leads owners to believe week 2 will be even worse against a stout Titan Defense. Slaton did tear this defense apart last season. Rushing over 100 yards in the previous two meetings (216 combined) and and  a score. But based on last weeks collapse of the Houston offense, he is a bench candidate if you have reasonable alternative options. 

So I am an Addict I'll Admit it


I wanted to see how I would do after the knowledge of week 1 performances. My 12th team and I told myself I would keep it to five this year....

Round 1
- (6) Child Please - Matt Forte RB

Round 2 (15) Child Please - Steven Jackson RB (I was thinking about Tom Brady because I love his fantasy playoff schedule but decided quarterback wasn't a priority. Plus I have had bad luck drafting QBs high, last year Carson Palmer)

Round 3 (26) Child Please - Kevin Smith RB - I was debating on Smith or Roddy White. Took Smith because 1 time almost ran out, 2 with presence of Tony G., White may lose TD catches and 3 I think Kevin Smith could be this years Steve Slaton.

Round 4 (35) Child Please - Dwayne Bowe WR - surprising week 1 debut with Cassel against the Ravens.

Round 5 (46) Child Please - T.J. Houshmandzadeh WR - Mr. Reliable(Anquan Boldin WR was drafted just 2 picks before me ugh!) 

Round 6 (55) Child Please - Kurt Warner QB - Yes he slipped this far back! So I had to take him. I was hoping to get Hasselbeck as a backup/starter but he went much earlier than in preseason drafts.

Round 7 (66) Child Please - LenDale White RB - I had meant to draft Jonathan Stewart.

Round 8 (75) Child Please - Hines Ward WR - Jonathan Stewart was picked just before...

Round 9 (86) Child Please - Chris Cooley TE - Had a pretty nice opening day where he actually scored! Had to take Cooley when my sleeper John Carlson no longer became a sleeper after week one and was drafted absurdly in round 6.

Round 10 (95) Child Please - Jamal Lewis RB - Packers D who I wanted was just taken. He is a starting back and averaged over 5 yards a carry week 1 against the Vikings Defense.

Round 11 (106) Child Please - Jay Cutler QB - Slipped a lot from preseason drafts. Since he was the best quarterback left I took him. There wasn't much that interested me in this round. 

Round 12 (115) Child Please - Julius Jones RB - Passed up on Fred Jackson for Jones simply because when week 4 comes around Jackson's value is uncertain with the return of Lynch. Julius Jones is a starter at a bargain basement price. Fantasy wise he is flex until he proves he is a legitimate threat.

Round 13 (126) Child Please - Dustin Keller TE - Wasn't really any worthy receivers left except Steve Smith. Keller went unnoticed in this draft even after posting an impressive 4 catches for 94 yards in week 1.

Round 14 (135) Child Please - Willis McGahee RB - Ravens goal line back in a time share with Ray Rice, niiice!

Round 15 (146) Child Please - Colts D/ST - Everyone must have drafted 3 Defenses! Not a bad pick up though, we will see how it folds out.

Round 16 (155) Child Please - Lawrence Tynes K - Sleep on in most leagues. The Giants produced one of the most reliable and high scoring fantasy kickers last year in the ageless  John Carney. Tynes back after an injury keep him out most of last season, should produce similar results. He went 3 for 3 in week 1.

Having never drafted after the season started I thought everyone starts out 0-0, WRONG. It takes your starting roster based on your draft and gives you week 1 score.
Luckily my team won last week haha even though they didn't exist yet. Whoo close 78-74. Nice to get a win without worrying about lineup.
How do you think I did? 

2009 Fantasy Football - Week 1 Recap and Waiver Wire Pick Ups

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Hank Baskett is now a Colt





Playing second fiddle to Reggie Wayne, Baskett could emerge as a fantasy option. Given his short and limited Eagle career, it is too early to tell but he is worth a flyer in deeper leagues.

NFL Oregon Trail


Pretty funny and creative video!

Source

Sorry, but you have been CUT!

Time to get rid of the excess baggage and add a player to your roster who can be a contributor.

Quarterbacks

Jake Delhomme 5 turnover game tsk tsk. Even on a good week he doesn't have much of an upside.

Chad Pennington there are plenty of quarterbacks available with a higher ceiling.

Running Backs

Earnest Graham oh how the tables have turned. It looked like Graham would be Tampa's lead back. Now he is third wheel in a committee. Not much value unless someone gets hurt.

Shonn Greene is a rookie who will see little action unless Washington or Jones gets hurt.

Wide Receivers

Anthony Gonzalez may miss up to 8 weeks. He wasn't much of a fantasy factor anyway.

Hakeem Nicks is also injured.

Jeremy Maclin Eagles have way too many weapons for this rookie to be roster worthy.

Steve Smith has Some Nasty Things to Tell his QB



This an alleged quote from Steve Smith to Jake Delhomme. There was a video on youtube but the NFL took it down so I assume this is a legitimate quote.

"Hey, I know you feel like crap. I mean, you're not a very handsome guy anyway. But, the performer, the quarterback? I've never really liked you as a quarterback. But as a person? That's who I love, I love you as a person."

Ouch! That has to hurt. Delhomme days in Carolina may be numbered.

Twitter Thursday






WOW, someone other than Ocho tweeted something interesting. Ispy Jay really? I spy with my little eye a quarterback that threw 4 interceptions, bet you didn't see that coming!

I hope Ocho scores because it will be interesting to see what happens when he Lambeau leaps. Will they accept him as one of their one or hit him in disgust?

Sell High

Jeremy Shockey – Yes is will be fantasy worthy this season, but consider this he only had 31 receiving yards against Detroit. So had he not catch 2 TDs it would not have been a note worthy performance. If you have a better Tight end option deal out Shockley while he is hot.

Patrick Crayton - he put up number 1 starting receiver numbers in week 1 mostly in part to his 80-yard touchdown catch. Still, he is a bye week option at best. See what you can get for him. Try dealing for DeShaun Jackson or T.J. Houshmandzadeh guys who should be weekly performers.



Julius Jones - he was the benefactor of a porous St. Louis defense. Yeah, he will probably be a good flex depending on matchups this season but if you can get a Steve Slaton or Steven Jackson for him it is a no brainer do it!

Cedric Benson was not too stellar against a weak Denver defense. He has what should be 8 tough match-ups his next 9 games. Sell, sell, sell!

Buy Low
It is a little early for this but the early bird gets the worm right?

Jay Cutler he will bounce back just not until week 3. If you need a quarterback you should be able to get him for a reasonable price.

Jamal Lewis rushed for 57 yards against a stout Viking run defense with only 11 carries. He has a pretty good schedule this season. If the Browns don’t let the game get away from them early, they will find comfort in handing Lewis the ball.

Leon Washington had 15 carries last week that is more than DeAngelo Williams, Brian Westbrook and LaDainian Tomlinson. Still a flex at best a nice guy to have when he is being utilized so much.


Photo credit Brian Dowling Jonathan Stewart had 11 carries to Williams 14.He was also given three straight carries in the red-zone but failed to score. 

Steve Slaton had a horrible week 1 and week two doesn’t look like it is going to be any better.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh

John Carlson is no fluke he should continue to be a reliable tight-end all season.

 I told you! I told you! I told you! Don’t drink the Jim Jones kool-aid.

David Garrard 122 yards- 5 points

Dwight Freeney worked his rookie tackle Eugene Monroe all day. Also, it didn’t help Garrard that the Jags offense had one game plan, give the ball to Maurice Jones Drew.

Matt Schaub 116 yards and one interception – 4 points

Schaub owners were expecting much more. He started in over 50% of the teams that own him. Ouch!
