It sounds bad for Roy Williams and his knee. Evans, Battle & Furry, Calvin Johnson & Bruce are all on the waiver wire. I'm liking Furry considering I'm in a ppr league. Your thoughts? Thanks.
Williams looks like he will be lost for the year. I think Calvin Johnson will get more looks with Willims out - now he really gets a chance to step up and be a No. 1 guy
In light of the Roy Williams injury, how would you rank the Lions receivers in fantasy value for the rest of 2007?
Johnson.McDonald ( who already gets targeted a lot) and then Furrey - McDonald already starts and I think CJ may get the promotion now
Going against Brady tonight up 29 points. Do I even have a chance, and which side would you rather be on?
I would not be confident - I would rather be on the Brady side - but good luck!
I am up 17 and my opponent has Matt Stover and NE Defense. I could play Maroney or Derrick Mason at my flex. I had pretty much decided all week to go with Maroney, as he's scored in two straight. But, upon further inspection, I'm kind of leaning towards Mason as the safer option. Maroney has only gotten 6 and 10 carries in the last two games, and isn't even on the field when the Pats pass, which is like 2/3 of the time. Mason, on the other hand, is second in the NFL in "looks" and has been more involved in the offense with Kyle Boller at the helm. On top of that, Baltimore figures to be playing from behind and throwing it quite a bit.
Mason doesn't score and will be a non-factor - I have seen less of "padding the totals" when playing from behind this year, especially against NE - I prefer Maroney
Assuming Favre doesn't go, who is the better replacement, Frerotte or Rosenfels?
All reports indicate Favre will play and I would not worry
I have C. Taylor and I was thinking of dropping him since he slits carries, but he did well and he is up against the 49ers next week. Should he be played or dropped? Thanks
I would keep him - he will split carries, but still produce pretty good numbers - splitting carries does not mean a guy is useless
What's up buddy? Remember me. My boy Travis Henry had 2 TD's. How'd Selvin Young do? How did I know Henry would play and play a lot? Why I pay to play on ESPN and I read the news blurbs. You should too. Thank you and g'night!
I remember you Frank - and I also remember Henry rushed for less than 50 yards, fumbled, and Denver lost. :)
What does the NYG running back situation look like for week 14?
Early indications are Jacobs will be back, but I would still look for Droughns to get goal-line carries
Should I drop Cotchery for Gage, Bryant Johnson, or Furrey?
I would get Johnson - bpth Fitz and Boldin hurting in Arizona, making me think about Sean Morey a bit too
Yeah, I really care that Denver lost. This is all about the FANTASY Scott. I was right this time. He carried the ball more then Selvin and he scored 14pts in my ESPN league which sure ain't bad. You are stubborn even in defeat.
I can admit he had two scores but he looked mediocre otherwise and when you fumble that gets you in hot water with Shanahan - congrats on your one good call - now let's move on
LT and MB3 hold down my 2 rb spots, but of S.Young,A.Hall, and R.Droughns, who gets the call at FLEX this week? Or is L.Booker or F.Jackson worth a look?
Lynch may be back and Henry starts as longa she is healthy, so use Droughns for possible TDs
Scott, I need help. Because of next week's matchups, I'm thinking I have to sit Addai and Parker, and go with C. Taylor and Fargus. Talk me out of it if you can. Thanks
I would not sit Addai - Balt D is overrated - Fargas I do not like against GB so it has ot eb Parker - Taylor is not on the level of those 3 with Peterson back
Hey Scott If I recall you were not to high on Peterson (Chi) did yesterdays game change your mind?
Actually, I did like him, and do going forward as a strong, versatile runner
Hackett worth a waiver wire pick up if I've got a bye in week 15 so I might be able to use him as my WR3 in week 16 and 17 (hopefully)? My WR3 options now are R Brown, Javon Walker, and Gage. Thanks!
Hackett is out indefinitely - I wouldn't risk it
Shanahan said he wanted to use Young more, but he got hurt. Henry wasn't going to be used that much... and his yards per, against a crappy run D is not promising for future use.
Frank was not right, he was lucky. Shanahan said postgame that Henry was supposed to be held to "a handful of plays" and that Andre Hall was just unable to go. Young's arm injury paved the way for Henry to not just be a footnote. Unless Frank's got a crystal ball, he is full of hot air.
Is Hines Ward the best WR of all time in Steeltown?
Not as good as Swann or Stallworth - hes no Louis Lipps, though!
Need help! Have Shaub as my QB. Now that he is down, which one would you pick to replace him: Rosenthul, Frerote, Redman, Tavaris Jackson?
Yech - if Frerotte keeps starting, he is the one i would take, otherwise, Rosenfels
If Henry ends up suspended and Selvin can't go next week, who is more likely to get the start: Hall or Sapp? Also, is Gado worth picking up?
I would say hall if he is healthy enough, then Sapp - Gado worth the add with Chatman banged up
Think I will be okay with Warner and McNabb for the Playoffs? I also have Garrard or Sage as options.
I would drop McNabb for Garrard, who is much more dependable
I chose poorly this weekend but Jamal Lewis got it done. Its round 2 of the playoffs, do I stick with Lewis against the Jets, or make the switch to Grant against Oakland?
If you could use both I would, but I would give the slight edge to Lewis
who's better from here on out, f.taylor, a.peterson (chi), d. foster?
Peterson - he is the most versatile - but Taylor is also playing well, so do not overlook him
I need one! Pls rank for the remaining of the year? C Brown, J Chatman, or M Pittman?
Chatman for sure if he can stay in the games, otherwise, start scouting the free agent list
Scott, I am up 64 points, but my opponent has Brady, Moss, and Gostkowski.. is that enough of a cushion?
Not enough to make you feel quite safe - but good luck!
Is Santonio Holmes going to play Week 14?
Too early to tell - we might not know anything more until at least Wednesday
Have a 6 point lead and the other guy has got Stover going tonight...winner gets the last playoff spot. With the windy conditions and the Ravens lack of O...think I still have a chance?
That does not look good - Stover could be ALL of the Baltimore offense tonight
Down by 54...I have Brady, Welker and NE D. Chances?
Very good, especially with three New England slots in your lineup
Eli has looked horrible ... think he's likely to turn it around or do you think Vince Young can carry my team to the playoffs?
I would rather go with Young, who can also run for scores
Instead of giving everybody's chances. Why not give us some projections for tonight?
Pats 41, Ravens 10 Brady - 4 TD passes, Maroney 1 TD McGahee 1 TD run 1 Brady INT, 3 Boller INTs
I've been eliminated from the playoffs in one league. I have a few guys on my roster (AP for one) that can put up big points. Is it O.K. for me to release them all, signing non-factor players, so that the playoff teams can put in claims on them to enhance their rosters? It's a non-keeper league.
That can ruin a league - your roster should be locked once your season is over - they have to go with who they have
So who you got catching those four Brady TDs tonight???
Two to Moss, one to Welker, one to Watson
What do you think of Redman from Atlanta? Worth a late pickup?
No - if future opponents know he is starting and watch film on him, he will struggle
How are Marshawn Lynch and Brandon Jacobs looking for this weekend? Should I pick up Jackson and Droughns?
Too early to tell - when guys start practicing on Wed we will get a better picture - looking better for Jacobs right now - Jackson is a good add
Is Portis gonna play Thursday? Worth picking up Betts if he isn't?
I have not seen anything yet that would indicate he is out
For Week 14, do I go with Stallworth vs. PIT or A. Gonzalez vs. BAL?
I would go with Gonzalez if Harrison is still out
I'm up 14.1 point my opponent has Willis McGahee and Laurence MAroney going? Am I doomed to miss the playoffs, Zoltar, err Scott?
Not looking good for you with two RBs going for him - but I hope I am wrong for your sake
What do you think of Ryan Grant for next year? Worth a keeper slot over a Clinton Portis or Brandon Jacobs?? Thanks.
I would keep Portis, still quite young and will be better if Washington gets more playmakers around him next year
Scott, would you even consider keeping Ryan Grant and loosing a 10th round pick over keeping LT and losing my first?
I would consider it, but Tomlinson is far more provenm and I would sacrifice the first rounder - if you don't use your first-rounder on him, some one else will
Favre is likely to play, but this injury is similiar to the one he sustained last year and he played poorly after that. Would you start Favre this week or go with Warner in the first round of the playoffs?
Favre also had lesser weaponry and a worse syupporting cast last year - if your other option is Warner, you can afford to eb careful with Favre, but I would not sit him for a lesser QB
I am down 33 but have Brady going tonight. (My opponent's lineup is finished for the week.) How should I feel about things right now?
You should feel pretty good, but just keep in mind you can't control what happens and just watch what happens and roll with it
Sit Favre for Anderson week 14?
I would do that - I regularly start Anderson over Favre
So I finished in 8th and get the privelage to play the first place team in the first round of the playoffs. Obviously, he has Brady. Do you agree that if there was a week to be playing Brady, it would be this week? If anyone can slow him down, it's the Steelers, right?
I say don't worry about your opponent at all - you cannot control who he starts - put in your best possible lineup and remember anything can happen
scott, you seem to be in a great modd today. good fantasy weekend for your boys?
"Every day above ground is a good day." Peter Criss
Warner at Seattle sounds pretty bad to me... with a Thursday roster lock I was even thinking of going for Clemens home to Cleveland.
Clemens is not a good enough fantasy QB ot consider him over Warner - that is matchup overanalysis
I have been starting both Brady and Welker most of the year, but the Pittsburgh match-up scares me a little. Should I bench Welker and play Colston and Galloway at WR to help diversify my risk?
Never bench your Pats, regardless of matchup - it's the Steelers who should be scared
Did you just quote the WORST member of Kiss?
He's one of the originals - so he is not the worst.
Have you ever played no body at a position if you had the lead going into Monday night. I have Stover and I am up by 2 points and want to know if I should pull him in case he misses.
Not a bad idea at all - it will guaranteee you the victory
Rody White's day yesterday, more to follow or once in a season?
White has been performing well for several week s- he is already proven
Anthony Gonzalez over Burress or Boldin this week?
Boldin looks iffy, and I don't trust Burress anymore - yes, Gonzalez
Sideny Rice, worth a look, do you think jackson can continue to get him the ball. Thanks SE
Definitely - he has scored in three of his past four games - Thanks a lot everyone!
