ok boys and girls...I'm out in gorgeous southern California (why the BLEEP doesn't everyone live here....)...let's roll
Who would you start this week as a third RB, Slaton or Fargas?
as alwways I start the first question.....ROCK (great name...half porn half soap opoera) I like Slaton as a legit low end #1 starter this week....be well
E-Dog! I can get Marshawn Lynch for Run DMC and Roy Williams. Should I take it and run?
take it...run like Ussain Bolt and (I can't believe I'm about to say this....) feel a little guilty
Hey Eric, for the record, you're better looking than that "other guy", anyways, I got Peyton Manning in a trade but also picked up Gus Frerrote....my dilemma is proven talent vs. good matchup?
If you thought I was above recieving gratitutious compliments...you were wrong. PLay Manning...did ANYONE else see the Colts start to get their rythm back in the second half last week?
Erik, everyone has a different opinion about Peyton Manning this week and I wanted to hear your take. Should I start him against the Ravens, or should I believe the hype and start Kyle Orton against the Falcons?
more Manning.....look Baltimore hasn't played anyone yet (Big Ben was banged up...Tennessee is the king of the ugly 17-13 win...Cleveland and Cincy are so out of sync, Britany Spears just called and said "can you guys stop acting like human grease fires?"....plus off the bye week the Colts will start to roll
Erik, I'm the commish of my league. A trade was proposed for my approval. I'm not sure it is a fair trade. What are your thoughts on trading Deangalo Williams and Julius Jones for Brian Westbrook?
Johnnyboy....my rules for all commishes: unless there was collusion (i.e. cheating) why would you EVER void a trade? If you have guys/gals who aren't tall enought o ride the bumper cars of credibility then THROW THEM OUT OF THE LEAGUE!!!!!!
My computer is slower than John Kruk legging out a triple....but I'm doing my best...as I mentioned I'm, not at my usual terminal...I'm (sigh) roughing it in LA
Would you start Brees or Warner this week?
I'd like to have that problem.....oh Brees BTW
Hi Eric! I know how you love Lendale White so I just traded for him along with R.Grant and Braylon Edwards. I gave up T.Jones, Crotchery and Sammy Morris. What do you think? Thanks Mike
My thought is: Can I play in your league next year...and can I have the guy you traded with on my speed dial?
Erik Kuselias : fargas or mcallister
Peter: I actually Like Fargus a lot this week as an excellent sleeper
I'm staying away from Colston this week like he's day old sushi
What impact will Colston have this week if he plays? What about Ryan Torain's long-term fantasy impact this season?
HELP!!! Can I really sit Steven Jackson? I have J. Jones vs GB, MJD vs. Denver and Steven Jackson vs. Wash. I need to start two....any suggestions?
Keegan (does anyone call you "the Keeger?" we had a kid in my 'hood and....oh nevermind) you are NOT sitting SJax for a guy who isn't the goalline back...rememberone of our cornerstone precepts: He who scores TDS (or has the potential to score) is inherently more valuable
I have Cooley, Shockey and Scheffler. Owner said he would take Scheffler for Bowe...no brainer right?
Does your love of Fargas this week make him a start over Addai or Deangelo "one week wonder" Williams?
I said I love him...I didn't say I would bear his children
Erik love the chats Thanks for all your help. Do I trade Romo to pick up Portis? I have Warner as my backup QB
yes...and now is the time to start shedding your depth like women in northern cliamtes shed their winter weight....it's spring people...layers are overrated!
Should I go for the hail mary and put in Kevin Faulk at RB2?
Ed: no. like "you had 9 beers and you asked me if its ok to call your ex at 2am" kinda no...
Engram and Breaston this week over Graham and Holt at flex? Or some mix? thanks
If there was ever a week to call on Stevie Breaston...this is the week. I picked him up just for this week. It's risky...but the over under in the game is a whopping 50....the Cowboys are a mess in the secondary...Kurt Warner has thrown 2 or more tds in 12 of his last 13...and Boldin basically fractured his skull....
ok....rapid fire for the next 5 min...
E., bench one for me: S Jax, B Jacobs, T Jones, Andre Johnson, R. Moss, TO, please.
should i drop matt jones for kevin curtis?
should you drop your ugly girlfriend for one that's mean to you? either way...it ain't pretty
My doctor says I swallow a lot of aggression...along with a lot of pizza. So do I be aggressive and play Sproles in my flex this week?
nicely done..fine movie...and no. (and my big man is gonna do it all for us for 438 dollars and 58 cents!)
Rivers or Cassel?
Hey E.K., which dinosaur fossil should I start this week, Favre or Warner?
Jazz it up with Orton-Hester or smooth is out with Eli-Burress
Tito....the Giants are playing CLEVELAND! CLEVELAND!
boldins probable, play him over berrian or coles?
no...im still skeptical about him playing
rivers or campbell?
campbell...rivers is a #2...and a guy Id love to trade right now
I am crazy for wanting to start Leron McClain over Joseph Addai this week? I am starting MJD as my other RB and I also have Duece and J Stew on the bench.
yes...you are crazy
Better flex play slaton or hightower?
Jonny boy...Slaton is a #1...Hightower is a #3
KEEPER LEAGUE: JT O'sullivan for laurence Maroney I have Big Ben and Orton.
I was the last one on the Maroney bus...and even I'm pulling the yellow cord and begging to get off
Garrard or Eli this week?
Eli...love him this wek
Should I throw to Driver this week?
only when Greg Jennings is covered...which seems to be never
ok more rapid fire at the bottom of the hour....
romo or warner?
Will Michael Pittman capitalize on Selvin's absence?
Sheena......I don't trusat Mike Shanny to do anything consistent...so honestly "I don't know"
Jamal Lewis or Felix Jones (return yards count)
Jamal Lewis gets one more chance be4 I ditch him...he lead the NFL is gaolline carries last season..the Browns HAVE to think about pounding the ball...he's a nice sleeper
Erik, who do you like better this week cutler or mcnabb?
I like Cutler...with Reggie Brown out...DJax getting figured out and KCurtis questionable....Westbrook out...who knows what your gonna get?
My resident Lions fan just told me that team is going 0-16....
Yo Erik - thanks for taking the question. I know you're no Stephania Bell, but now that Carson Palmer is officially out this weekend, do you think Tommy John Surgery is imminent?
Jereb....I'm not a doctor...I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night...and I would NEVER go out on a limb on an injury question....but he is out this weekend
ok got another, slaton or marion barber?
Barber is a top 5 play...Slaton is a top 10 play
Should I even consider benching LT in favor of Ronnie Brown, Portis or Reggie Bush in a PPR league?
yes...my peeps in SD say LT isn't 100 percent (no kidding) but that he's closer to 50% than previously thought...I dropped him last night in my ranks to a low end #1
Run DMC and Roy WIlliams OR Forte? It's gotta be Forte, right?
What does it take to get a question answered? Engram or Holt?
Engram...if it PPR...Holt otherwise...Engram will catch 912 passes...but only 6 for tds
ok people we are WAAAAAYYYYY behind on questions....and can we have some fun please? PPPLLLEEASSSSEE?????
Oakland def or New Orlean def?
stay away form the oakland D like they are warm egg salad
Watch Fantasy Focus Now at 12:00 Sunday on espn.com. With that out of the way, do I start Roy Williams or Chad Johnson this weekend? Thanks.
see all you have to do is plug the show and your chances to get answered are MUCH better.....I like Roy but its close....and both have been disappointing
Engram over Colston you think?
ok rapid fire...lets get the questions flowing...make em quick....
From here on out - JLewis or McGahee?
SPROLES, PITTMAN, OR MCFADDEN? 1/2PPR TY
Walter or Stokely?
Stokley...love him like we're related this week
If you answer my question you will receive total consciousness. Who do I play at flex: Hester, Ocho, or Deuce?
thax for the total consciousness....I got that goin for me.....which is nice....Ocho
Start two, Santana, A.Johnson, Steve Smith
sit santana...he can burn you with a zero catch game anytime
Erik, You want fun!???? Jenna Jameson or Angelina Jolie (Pre brad Pitt) Oh..also, please pick 3 WR for this week out of Royal, Calvin Johnson, Braylon Edwards, and Devery Henderson. Thanks!
I said fun.....not porn and overrated actresses....sit Royal he may not play
I have Westbrook, Jacobs, T Jones and McClain. Can get Colston for T Jones. Make the move?
Kuselias or Clooney? Mcgahee or fargas?
both are excellent "too lose to call questions"
somewhere my wife is laughing at me
Need to sit one out of Addai,Edge,Slaton and Fargas. Thanks
you can sit Edge or Fargus...it you sit either of the other tow...I will come to y0our house and drink your fresca as "Moose and Rocco" help you find your wallet
ok rapid fire is over....more at the quarter hour.....let's go people...lets have siome fun...be creative
Warner or Cutler -who's gonna give it to me?
both...but Warner is more consistent
Hook a brother up! NYJ Def vs Cincy w/out Palmer or GB Def?
That is the single worst alias ever...you're like a dig that's so ugly that it actually becomes kinda cute...still GB defense...bnut I wouildn't laugh if you went the other way
Would it be INCONCEIVABLE (I keep using that word and I'm not sure what it means) for Jamal Lewis to get 75 yards and a TD?
no....and your movie is a little overrated...don't shoot the mesanger
EK, I need an intervention!! Am I really starting Orton over Hasselbeck this week?
yep you are.....Orte has been $ the last month and I like the matchup this week....but sell him after the game and get 150 cents on the dollar
Special K--You expecting a scoring binge in Arizona this week? Gotta be good for all Cards...
yep...and all 'Boys....get 'em in
What recovers sooner, LT or the economy?
neither before the end of the year
The Graham cracker has been bad the last two games. Play him over Hightower?
yeah...Hightower is sexy this week though...very sexy...I'm close to pulling the trigger
I'm sinking b/c of stock like Ocho Cinco, Inc.. will his stock rise this week or should I roll with Lance Moore.com?
same answer as the previous question....its VERY tempting to go with Moore...especially if you roll PPR
Winslow and his two, um, enlarged friends this week or Greg Olsen?
Brad...very tactful...excellent bedside manner...I'm still Taking Winslow...but I moved Olsen into my top 10 for the 1st time all season
Erik, why hate the midwest? I think i have asked maybe a dozen questions and each one is funnier than the last. I reference old Val Kilmer movies, I ask to do guest appearances, and nothing, nada, goose egg. Just biased because of the warm weather I suppose....
I'm hatin a little...gettin my sunshine on....I may try and surf after the show (then again maybe I wont)
hightower or Duece, ppr, carries count for a point
Carries count for a point? Really? has anyone else ever even heard of this? or is this like the time I didn't know who Leona Lewis was?
TAKE MY QUESTION.....PLEASE!!! If you count return yardage, who's the better play: Breaston or SJax?
well fine...if you're gonna cry like a little (you know what I was gonna type here)...SJax
ok...lightening round.....get 'em in FAST...let's go
Your show rocks: PPR League pick 3, Housh, S Moss, L Moore, Plaxico, L Coles. Thanks!
Love Alaska (and can we all agree that Sarah Palin is Waaaay hotter than Tina Fey? Motion made...do I have a second?) Sit any 2 of the last 3.....
ok I lied...the lightning round starts...NOW
I'll keep hammerin' here: Favre or Brees Sunday EK?
Brees is an ELITE play
O'Sullivan, Ferotte or Russell?
that's my girl....
Housh or Bruce? PALMER OUT
Housh...Bruce has some TDS but that has to end sometime...maybe tis week
CHARGERS OR JETS D???????????????
I now have them ranked right next to each other...with the news that Palmer won't play....I'll support your JETS if you wanna go there
FLEX....slaton or berrian
Long term #3 WR: DJax, K Curtis, or Koren?
Pick 2: Addai, McGahee, Buckhalter, McClain?
I picked your question cause I feel bad I kinda banged on you a little....you're a very talented actress....now sit the middle two
WASH or INDY Def?
WASH...they are top 5...Indy couldnt stoop directional Arkansas's run game
Play braylon edwards or engram?
Engram in a ppr...Edwards otherwise
TRADE QUESTION....get Brees and give Delhomme and Turner....check box yes or no
heck yeah...get the best player in the trade and you'll rarely be sorry
Pick 1: Buckhalter, McClain, Edge?
McClain...and did we ever verify that this was the guys name in "Die Hard"?
Will Westbrook and the Iggles bounce back after the bye?
yeah...hearing Westbrook should be his old great self after the bye
Do I go with Kevin Curtis (probably gonna play, but 100%?) as my WR3 or do I pick up a guy like Antonio Bryant or Kevin Walter?
like Walter a lot...also look and see if Stokley or Breaston are available...
R Moss or S Smith this week?
Moss....assume he's BACJ untill further notice
Grant, TJones, McGahee - which one sits?
MCGhee rides pine like he wont throw 4 passes on Gene Hackman's team in Hoosiers
E...big fan of yours since your Sportsbash days; wish you were back doing talk every day! (Yeeeah Friday!!!) Am I really an idiot for shopping LT? If not, what can I seriously hope to get for him...maybe Forte?
can you believe we are actually saying this? shop LT if you have a losing record...trade for him if you have a cushion
last 5 min...lets make em good and make em quick...ill type as quickly as i can...
Will LT ever be "himself" this year? Seriously Palin hotter than Fey??? Seriously??? IF that's your opinion maybe you shouldn't answer this question.
ok I wont...good luck this weekend
Ok, what about Forte or R Brown?
Breaston or Megatron
thomas or julius jones
Yes is was John McClain. Now should i play him with McFadden, Fargas, Sproles or E Graham?
Brandon Marshall or Larry Fitz?
dude...what kind of league are YOU in....but Larry Fitz is a top 2 WR (with TO)
Eric, you're the big toe of the fantasy department...Anyways, pick one of these clowns for this week only: Lloyd, Rice or Curry?
Clowns? that's harsh....Rice...I guess....(OK you win..they are clowns)
Owen Daniels or Dallas Clark?
ok last chance to get 'em in.....and my chance to remind you to watch FFN at noon eastern on espn.com.....
Djax or Boldin.
I don't think Boldin will go....and with the philly injuries...I'd play DJax
Love you guys...tanks for the kind words and the questions.....let do it again next week....see you Sunday!
