ok I'm aboard 5 min early...so let's "Tom Coughlin time" this thing and get started...hope everyonje is feelin good and ready to roll
Should I keep Marshawn Lynch or try to trade him while he still has some value as a must start
1st question always gets answered... I Love what the Bills did with Lynch last week...giving him the rock in space where he can make plays...for Lynch is comes down to playoff schedule
Mcnaab or Rodgers...point per completion!PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEaaaaaaaaseHelp
I'm not in love with Donovan McNabb..(so Mrs. McNabb can rest easy) he has 7 TO's in his last 4 games and BAL is a tough D at home...plus I am now DOWNGRADING Westbrook significantly...he may not play
I'm a little in a bind i have an empty roster spot and i just can't see any fantasy value in anyone. Who should i go with at either running back or wide receiver, because i already have two studly quarterbacks and some good running backs?
great question...let's take a look QB: love Thigpen and Hasslebeck rest of the way RB: Pittman, Hillis, Pierre Thomas WR: JGage, Roy Williams, Mark Bradley, Ginn all good options and all available in too many leagues
Need two,between Portis,Hillis,Dunn and L.Johnson Thanks Eric you are a true class act!
thx....I was the guy who was on the Hillis bandwagon last week...and this week my "Hillisan" guy is Warrick Dunn. Detroit is simply putrid...all time bad..."Cop Rock" bad....
btw: "Cop Rock" was a show that was launched in the 90's that had cops breaking into song at times during the show...think "NYPD Blue" meets "Grease" or "High School Musical 3"
What are Chris Johnson's chances against the Jets? I mean that D has looked good, but they haven't really been tested against a good rushing attack all season. Are they for real, or should I start Braylon Edwards instead of CJ this week?
Ku-Ku-Kuselias! Would you dare bench Kurt Warner for gulp Jeff Garcia?
oh heavens no.
is being called an "insane" expert who you "trust" a compliment? like in "caddyshack" when Rodney says about Judghe Smails's hat "oh, but it looks good on you". Anyway. You can drop anyof your non-qbs...all mediocre...but I LOVE Bryant this week against The "D"...have I mentioned the Lions are putrid yet?
EK, would you start Derrick Ward over Warrick Dunn if Jacobs sits?
no. and Jacobs won't sit...he may not get his usual number of carries...but he'll go.
Thoughts on Lee Evans and Derrick Ward?
I like both guys more than usual this week...KC is starting 2 rookie corners this week (1 is a late pick...the other undrafted)...so I dig me some Lee Evans...Jacobs may not be 100%...so you have to bump Ward up a few spots
is pittman a good start
yep...one of my sleeper guys this week
Tank a game to get the playoff matchup I want or not?
no....the Karma Gods don't like that (apparently they were on vacation the year the Spurs tanked and were rewarded with DRobinson and/or Tim Duncan)...but other than that, they are usually more vengeful than than Glen Close in "Fatal Attraction"
Actually, with Westy iffy for Sunday, I can slide Thomas Jones in to sub. In that case, is Lee Evans a better play than Steve Slaton given his injured chest?
Love Slaton this week...witrh a word of caution. Cleveland gives up 150 per on the ground...BUT (and that's a Roseanne Barr sized but) I worry AGreen will be the goaline vulture...
How many doughnuts do you think I can eat?
enough that I have dropped you every week (but I will always love you...I absolutelt bludgeoned the other experts for about 5 weeks in a row...I supported you and nobody else would just love you for you)...then i got lucky and bailed at the right time....come to think of it...I wish you were a stock
You are not Bushwood material SIR! Who you taking Romo or Warner? Why?
How do you not win the academy award? Seriously. The Judge is either ENRADED or GIDDY....he only expresses two emtions in the entire movie...and changes on a dime. The greatest comedic performance of all time. And yet Marissa Tomei wins the oscar for "My Cousin Vinny." I'm now too depressd to answer your question. Warner.
take the pain away, Eric! with Sjax gone again my only options are LJ, Hightower, and Westbrook/Uncle Buck. which 2 do i play?
I don't think I can take THAT pain away. I don't think a doctor could help you (maybe not even Dr. Jack Daniels). Steven Jackson screwed me worse than Fredo did Michael in Godfather 2. You gotta play LJ...then play the Eagle who starts. Hightower gets the G-men and has been colder than Ben Affleck
how good is r.grant???trust him from here on out???
trust him like he's your twin brother and you need someone to hide your getaway car. He's money...and has anyone noticed they are giving the rock like 30x per week?
ok time for the rapid fire...5 min...quicj questions...quick answers...lets get them in!
I was great in Good Will Hunting. I resent that.
that was like 15 years ago dude...let it go
Kevin Smith or Chris Johnson?
Johnson...he's better and has the better matchup...but neither will be great
Is Cutler or Rivers a better play through out the rest of the season?
Cutler for the regular season...but Rivers has a great playoff schedule
Portis...he's just messing with us...he's gonna gut it out again this week...right???
he didn't gut it out last week...he played a half and didn't score...I expect more...but the very latest news isn't great
EK: I found a discarded Ben Roethisberger by the side of the road, picked him up yesterday morning, and played him last night. Can I ride him through the playoffs or should I drop him back at the curb where I found him?
his playoff schedule is rougher than dinner with the in-laws...when they don't like sports
Got Bush (status)?
he'll go...and I think he's better than expected
LJ or DeAngello Williams?
DeAngelo is legit...LJ is is sort of a mess
ok that's it fior Rapid fire...more at the bottom of the hour
Can Colston be trusted? Start him over either Bowe or Welker in a PPR?
no and no. But I think he'll get hot before the season is over...just not this week against that secondary
I need a WR...Slaton\Burress for P.Thomas\Megatron, Fair? Thanks!
fair....but I like the Slaton part better....BTW: Plax is in trouble with his hammy I DOWNGRADE him this week
Roddy White didn't do much in practice again, probably questionable! Should I plug in Avery over him or wait until 4 & let the chips fall?
I think Avery will be just fine (against the 31st ranked pass D)...but Roddy will go and he is a S-T-U-D STUD
Erik, I'm going to Thanksgiving at the GF's house. Her parents have a "No TV Rule". Do I become suddenly ill around gametime? Also, if Westbrook DOES in fact sit out this week, where does Buckhalter fit among these other Flex options: Pierre Thomas, Berrian, Arrington, Hightower, F.Taylor? Who you starting?
Tell her parents you have a "no tv...no appearance rule"...and if they ever want to even THINK of holding a grandbaby before they are in adult diapers...they will bust out the TV table trays...make a second pumpkin pie...cause THATS HOW YOU ROLL!
wow...apparently my Red Bull just kicked in...
Do you think Marvin Harrison is a big time sleeper? Got to love the matchup.
and i love the matchups for the rest of the year...good tip: go grab AGonzolez and stash him..the Colts play HOME against DET and CINCY in the playoffs (that's right...you just read that correctly)
McNabb usually reponds well to adversity and goes out with a chip on his shoulder. Play him over Thigpen?
not unless you like the pain of losing
Rapid fire: Choose one: Cassel, Orton or Hill (I start Forte and Olsen as well).
raipd fir starts on the quarter hours...but ok...I'm in a good mood....Orten
"LLLLLike a glove!" Pittman, Hillis, Fargas? Alllll Righty Then!
I kinda like Pittman...but that's tighter than Jorache jeans in the 80's..."Can you feel that buddy? huh huh huh?"
Hard times at WR. Coles, Ginn, or Breaston?
like Coles this week....Tenn says they WILL shut down TJones at all costs...I think the J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS will have to throw it
ok rapid fire time...for the nect 5 min...questions should be quick..just like the responses....
Ward, Hillis or Chris Johnson?
CJ..Jets are great v. run...but he'll be your best play
Eli or Cutler? Grant, Chris Johnson, or Slaton?
Cutler...but I kinda like Eli this week too...just not as much
hillis, ronnie brown chris johnson?
I LOVE Spokane...or "Spoke-a-vegas" as I like to call it. not Hillis
Pick 2-Evans, Antonio Pittman, Hillis.
really? how did you NOT get caught? and did you have enough room? I'm calling overrated and not really possible. as far as the questio is concerned..the 1st two
Orton or rivers?
Turner or Dunn
Turner...but close..if i can get convinced that Dunn will get the goalline carries I'd switch
Who's my stud this week, Keller, Winslow or Scaife?
you really did go through a LOT of dudes during the course of the show...I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin'.....Winslow is banged up...I kinda like Keller...but all are good options
Gates or Clark?
3 from Marshall, Smith(car), L.Moore, Breaston, Chambers
not the last 2...don't you dare
Go BLUE! McGahee or Jacobs?
Jacobs...and how weird is it that Michigan will not go bowling...weider than the 14 year old qualified on the golf tour? its close
Is Sammy Morris as risky as pitching Aaron Heilman in clutch situations? Cause I need THis>
yep...riskier than buying 2 day old sushi
I feel shocked!!
one of my fabvorie lines EVER...I sure do like pumpkins Cotton
dunn or westbrook
dunn...and I'm worried Westbrook won't go
Grant, Chris Johnson, or Slaton?
Grant...he'll be a beast this week
rapid fire over til :45...ok back to the regularly scheduled programming
FARGAS OR BUSH
Bush...but both will be better than ususal
orton or thigpen?
Started FWP last night which didn't go so well. Portis or Grant as my other RB this week?
Grant...portis will be much like last week
Love your chats!! Better flex play 2pt PPR J Stew or Lance Moore?
this question makes me sad...because I'm the idiot who CUT lance Moore when Colston came back...this was the worst move since david caruso though he was gonna be a movie star...I feel shame...this is all a long way of saying Moore is the play
Is it safe to play Witten yet, or should I play Scaife because Witten hasn't re-learned how to catch a ball yet?
I think Whitten is fairly safe...a 5-10 ranked TE
Boom! Ricky Williams as a flex or Sammy Morris? Desperate since I lost Pat Summerall.
Sammy (Fletch: "you're not gonna sing for us are you Sammy?")
Hey Erik, you have Peyton Hillis (23) ranked ahead of J-Stew (27). Care to defend that? (You can take it back if you want) Also, would you start J-Cotchery over either them as a flex? Thanks!
I think Fox has decided that DeAngelo is the primary back...and Hillis has fresh legs against a less viable opponent
Cutler or thigpen and hillis or CJ
Finally! someone who knows how to suck up...Sat AM 7-10 eastern "The Erik Kuselias" Show on ESPN Radio..then Sunday at NOON for FFNow... Cutler and CJ...But the QB question is close
Lendale, Pierre, or Sammy Morris?
Lendale...but those are three very mediocre options...you're like the guy i know who always has 3 girlfiends...but together they ain't a 10
ok 5 min of rapid fire...fire off the questions...make em quick...
Would play start a potenially limited Bush over Warrick Dunn with a good matchup?
not in this life
You would probably want a groin shot for asking this since I am carrying 3 D's but I've been scorned like an ex lover in the past by defenses. Who ya got, Pats, Panthers, or Broncos?
at least you know it...and that's the 1st step to getting better...Panthers
If Westbrook cant go, do you start L.White, Cotchery, or DeShaun Jax at the Flex spot? Thanks
cowboys or redskins d
Dallas,,,Mike matrz will turn it over and forget to protect his QB..DeMarcus ware is actually drooling already
radid fire - ryan or favre?
Royal or Harrison???
Please don't kill me for asking. Better RB2 this week: Hillis, DMC, Hightower or Bush?
I'm a girl with many flex options that don't add up to 5!! Cotchery, Sammie, Pittman, Norwood, PThomas or Deuce. Please help!
yes you are....we need to get you a quality man...Pittman or cotchery (depending on how your league scores)
McGahee or Morris
What is hotter than a girl that plays Fantasy football? In a PPR League, rank these this week: Bush, Westbrook, LJ, Mcgahee, and D. Ward?
not much...Bush...unless we get better news on Westbrook...but I'm thinking he's not gonna go
Portis or Dunn?
Dunn...Portis ain't healthy
I bet you I'll get over 100 yds and a TD this week.
deal...your team has gone 13 quarters and 150 snaps without a TD
ok 10 min left..5 min of regular..then 5 min of RFire to end the session...
Help Please! Thomas Jones or Fargas? Keller or Scheffler? I can't get Fargas' great matchup outta my head!
Still Like TJ a little better....like Scheffler
Pick 1: M.Jones, V.Jackson, D.Branch.
VJax...matt jones probably sits
If Plax doesn't play, is Domenik Hixon a good start?
if your'e in a 20 team league
Surely not Scheffler over Winslow????
yep..Winslow is banged up
Cotchery, Lance Moore, Donald Driver?
Who do you like for a flex this weekend? Deangelo, R. Moss, or Braylon?
BTW: kid on Xavier just hit a half court 3 at the buzzer to beat VaTech...nice.
5 min left...get the questions in....rapid fire...
Slaton or Turner
turner..slaton may get robbed at the goaline by AGreen
l. moore or a. bryant
Bryant...matchup is GREAT
The last Vice Presidential Candidate to lose Sarah Palin!
decent point...you and I should hang out sometime
Rivers or Thigpen?
Wait for Bush or play Hillis?
Pick 1 for flex: Jacobs/CJ/Evans/Colston
wow...that's REALLY tough...if Jacobs will start then him....
Michael Turner or Kevin Faulk?
flex one: berrian / fargas
actually i think that was Vargus (not fargus) from the "Bizzaro" seinfeld episode...can i get a ruling in this?
Jake or Garcia?
deangelo or pittman
Torry Holt or Kevin Walter?
I like Holt this week...you play him at home but (and this is an OPRAH sized but) you ALWAYS SIT HOLT ON THE ROAD!!!!!
Sit LT, Grant or Dunn?
really? you don't like them? wow. ok. sit Dunn
I think it was Farkas
I think Vargus...anyone else?
ok peeps..I'll see you tomorrow (you can hop on the phone) for ESPN radio...the Erik Kuselias show 7-10am...then FFNow sunday am noon easter...last tip: Just got word you NEED TO DOWNGRADE JACOBS!!!!!!
