hellllllllo! everyone sorry I was off last week...but I'm glad to be back As you know, I always take the first question that came in...(it came in at like 3am)...we will rapid fire a few times during the hour and with that being said...let's have some fun and Oh wait! Injury scoop...Reggie Bush is officially O-U-T! (Thanks to Sbell for the late info)
Do you think I should start Brady Quinn next week after his first career game went pretty well?
no. I'm a "sell Brady Quinn right now" guy....but he is ripped...so he's go that goin for him...which is nice
My quarterback dilemma... Drew Brees @ KC or Kurt Warner @ Seattle?
no...I'm the president of the "sell Brady Quinn right now" club....a club that is social..."demented and sad...but social" (Breakfast Club reference)
help!! I have too much depth! I need to bench someone: Forte, Jacobs, Portis, or Lynch?
"help I have too much depth"? really? that's your problem....I hope you have to eat thanksgiving dinner...at the table...with the TV OFF
How is it like to be a host
With Heath Miller out, is Spaeth a good start vs. a San Diego D that is a TE's dream? Better play than Olson or Scaife?
Can you please answer my question. I have asked tons of questions and never had one answered...Thanks in advance!! Ok since SJAX looks like he will be out this week I need a whole lineup change. I need 1 RB, 1 WR, and 1 Flex from this group: D. Bowe, B. Berrain, M. Moore, J. Noorwood, and R. Williams. Thanks!!!!
since you've "never had a question answered"...I'll be your guy. take the 1st three you mentioned...and good luck
Erik....my mom "caught" me AND i'm struggling at RB with SJAX out.....Hillis, D. Ward, or A. Pittman?
I actually like Hillis this week....but only for this week...
How do you get your rolodex of witty responses? Do you need help writing any of them?
I'd rather brush my teeth with water from the airplane sink that have you help me...
Love ya on Mike and Mike! I hate sitting Megatron.. but went with Cothery over Moss last nite.. Is Bryant over CJ way crazy and safe play?? Your opinion on Bryant?
son that's crazy talk....you need to sit Bryant
So bush is a no go? can you then enlighten us with your take on the Saints backfield? I just picked up Duece thinking he will run all over the chiefs. Good play or will they deploy the rb platoon like last week?
like deuce very much this week...he should be big..nice pickup
Is Mewelde Moore a good flex start this week? PPR league
no he makes me nervous...fast Willie is back. i think Moore is a decent flex at best
Am I nuts for sitting Slaton for LJ this week? Also who would you play Breaston or B Edwards in a PPR league?
yep...I think you have to play Slaton. I need to see something from LJ before I recommend him
KU.. KU.. SELIAS!! Antonio Pittman worth the pickup for us SJAX owners or not worth the real estate?
Pittman is a solid flex this week...SJax won't make the trip and can't figure out why he's not getting better
Tony Scheffler or Kevin Boss this week ?
both...Sheffler is in a good matchup with an excellent QB...Boss has scored 3 weeks in a row....but for this week I'd go with Tony-boy
I'm seriously making myself sick over this decision. I have Witten & Scaife. Yes, Romo is back, how accurate is he going to be and how long can Witten handle hits? Which one do I start in this make or don't make the playoffs game??
Love your passion....if that makes you sick...wait till your wedding day! (Kidding)...I'd play whitten...I think the Tenn air attack was a one time only thing
My man ~ PPR Flex help (So please don't just pick the guy that you think will score the Tuddie): Kevin Smith (@Car), A. Pittman (@SF), Hillis (vs.ATL), Braylon (@Buf), or Berrian (your boy)(@TB)...ugh.
wow...that's ugly. I'd probably take Berrain...but you could sell me on Hillis
Talk me off the fantasy ledge! I sat Cassel for Delhomme this week!
Cassel was all-time...but Delhomme will have a bounce back week...he'll help you against the Lions.
ok..let's go 5 min of rapid fire
Good Afternoon Erik. Very tough question and I'm sure you're the man for the job. R.Brown(Oak) or C.Johnson(Jax). Thanks.
CJ...jags allow 114 yds rush per game
Berrian or Driver to go with Colston?
Berrian...but much closer than it would normally be...this may be the only week you'd even have to ask
Did you hear if Betts practiced today? Start him or Alexander? (p.s. Tell Shanahan to bail me out...I'll start for him!)
Betts will be the best of the skins backs (Portis will not go)...but I wonder if ANY Redskin back is worthwhile
Am I crazy to start Bradley over Breaston? Also, which 2: MJD, Hightower, Slaton?
yes...you are crazy....not as crazy as Tatum Bell leaving his job as an airport porter to go back to Denver...but crazy
PPR flex-Betts, Curtis, Holmes or get Camarillo or Hillis off waivers?
Curtis or Hillis...but i like Curtis best
Pick 1 - Breaston, Roy Williams, Avery, Bradley
Breaston...he is smack dab in the middle of one of the all time great fantasy stats EVER (KWarner has thrown 2 or more tds in 8 straight games and 15 out of his last 16...amazing)
LJ over LT? Also, does that make me crazier than anyone else on here?
yes...if this was an FM station I'd be saying (in my DJ voice) "hold all calls...we have a winner"
K Smith, Fargus, Moore
3 guys who have never been in my kitchen?
Your chat is great at burning the last hour of the work week!! (for those lucky to still work....) Who do you have more confidence in those week Addai or Braylon??
Thanks Chris....love to the ESide I'd go with Addai..who i think will break out this week...in fact I was on the manning bandwagon 1st...now I'm adding all colts for the rest of the season
Those were three people who have never been in my kitchen! Which two do you like this week: MJD, Slaton, Hightower?
I HATE MJD this week...he's inconsistent...and the Tenn defense isn't..they're just plain great.
Bryant, Pittman (or, ugh, Ocho Cinco) at the flex?
before we bash "the artist formerely known as Chad johnson"...he has 3 tds in his last 2 home contests...
Fargas, F Taylor, or one of my back ups to go with Forte?
love Forte this week...love fargus this week...Dolphins have allowed more than 100 yds rushing in 6 straight...Fargus is a better deal than a hotel room in an all-inclusive resort right now
O Daniels or B MIller at te this week
Daniels...bad game last Sunday...but I think he bounces back
halfway through...my question to you: when is it too early to bust out the "Christmas vacation" DVD?
Fav. food at Thanksgiving?
Erik, I'm starting Forte and Hightower, and sitting Parker right?
Boss or Olsen...OR...Olsen or Boss!!!
boss...a guy i have been selling for a month...why isn't he in everyone's top 10? Scores every week.
CANDIED YAMS!! TRADE..Chris Johnson for Gore?
no...Gore is still higher on my board...and Len pascarelli once came on my radio show and did 3 minutes on the fact his wife's Yam Balls were the best ever. I'm still not completely recovered...(cause i hate yams...of course)
That tree wouldn't fit in your backyard. "It's not going in my yard, it's going in my living room."
exception...give yourself a bonus...perhaps a sunscription to the jelly of the month club
Hey Eric, Please pick 2" Roddy White, Hines War, Eddie Royal?
roddy is a top 10...Royal is a top 20...Ward is a top 30
T-Thig (NO) or Rivers (Pgh)....can't believe I just typed that.
nice to see you...Thigpen. Yep i said it.
WHAT UP E! Please comment on Steven Jacksons value at this point. What are examples of RBs or WRs that you think would be fair value in a trade. Thanks brother
If i had a surefire playoff team..I'd make a play for him and them see if he got healthy (because the playoff schedule is great)..otherwise I'd stay away like it was opening night of "Fried Green tomatoes 2"
Help! Tatum Bell or Benson this week?
Benson...here's my philosophy...I'll always the choose the guy who has the job (and gets the ball) over the guy who may have the job (and thus may not touch the ball)
Injury update on Ortons status? If he plays him or rivers this week
like i just said...gotta go with rivers. We KNOW he'll go. Orten will dress...he may play...but who knows?
that's my name,...No ****! Holt, Engram, or Bradley this week?
you NEVER: 1. hit on your girl's hotter sister 2. follow up an invitation for dinner by saying "depends...what are you having?" 3. play Torry holt on the road. Never. I'd go bradley
Is Dallas Defense a good play this week with the Washington RBs all hurt?
no. They get a sack (and they get Newman back) but this is an underachieving unit...and campbell doesn't throw picks
Have a chance to get Plax. Would you drop any of these to get him, and iif I do get him, which two to start this weekend? Holmes, A. Gonzales, A. Bryant, Camarillo, or Ginn, (or Schaub (I have Romo and Thigpen). PPR League. Thanks.
Plax is an excellent buy low candidate...he scores and may turn it on (he has the divaesque quality...but lots of ability)
What do you think Lendale White will do this week?
score a TD...have less than 50 yards rushing...not help in the pass game..in other words he'll be "LenDale White"
Who do I start at Flex, you good looking man! Julius Jones, Mcgahee or fargas? THANKS
I mentioned before I like Fargus this week...plus I don't trust Baltimore's RB..and JJones is just ok....at best
Roeth or Rivers...who gets the start?
I'm not a Big Ben guy this week..rivers has a tough matchup, but he's still the better play
You serious Clark? It's never too early for Christmas Vacation. It's a year round comedy. Any news on Colston's injury?
loved the "you serious Clark"....and Colston is doing fine...he needs to play for you this week
Yo What Up E-Dog. how well do you think addai will do the rest of the season and do you think rhodes will steal carries? thanks please need help!
Addai will still be the man..and the colts have a GREAT upcomming schedule
Sit one: Slaton, Forte, Chris Johnson, Brandon Marshall, or Colston.
considering you apparently play in a 1 team league..what's the difference?
Better flex play in a TD heavy league: K. Curtis, J. Stewart, P. Hillis or M. Bradley? Thanks!
we still have 10 minutes...you made it...I like Hillis...
and that reminds us...10 min left...make the questiosn quick...get them in...let's roll
McNabb Muhammed Brown Winslow for Andra Johnson FWP Moore Dallas Clark What End do you like?
the back end
Moore or Bradley this week?
Moore...love the saints
I don't know if I oughta go sailin' down no hill with nothin' between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic. Deuce, DeSean, MJD or Curtis at flex?
either of your RBs...not the WRS..and great work on the Xmas Vacation
I give Marshal (have TO and Colsten) I get Bush (I have Slaton, Lendale White, Portis, J. Lew)
no...hold out for better
I've been offered a trade of Steve Smith and Marques Colston for Clinton Portis. Should I take it? I have Gore, Hightower, and Graham at RB also and I'm in need of WR's big time.
yep...great deal for you...and portis won't go this week
A year subscription to the Jelly of the month club if you answer this question. LT or Jamal this week in a .5 ppr league....thanks
LT...and I like Strawberry
I don't know Russ....J Hill or B Edwards?
Edwards...and that made me laugh...can't see the line can ya?
Re: Your earlier question about SJax. I'm not a surefire playoff team, and I have him. Who can I get for him?
anyone. he won't help you next 2 weeks
What do you think of Breaston this week
very solid....great flex
Better pick up for playoffs Sammy Morris or Selvin Young?
Sammy Morris scares me more than a night of "beautry tips and politics with Rosie O'Donnell"
PLEASE ROMO OR THIGPEN!
Thigpen. I believe
THATS WHAT YA GET FOR SPILLIN PAINT IN THE GARAGE...OK, King Kuselias, big Fanatsy Live supporter!! (Shameless ESPN plug)...all of you guys have no love for Lynch against CLE in your rankings (must think that O-Line is kaput)so I shouldnt feel remorse at all for lockin Chris Johnson in my lineup for Sunday instead, right?? (Wow, shameless plugs AND Beakfast Club quotes...surely deserves recognition)
yes...play CJ...and I didn't wear tights..I wore the required uniform
Is Thigpen a better play then J Campbel
all day and 2x on Sundays...and good luck on Sundays...I'm out like Karabell's wardrobe! see you tomorrow morning for "The EK show" on espn radio (7 to 10am est) then Sunday for FFNow...noon eastern on espn.com THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!
