Fantasy Football with Christopher Harris

Christopher Harris
  (11:02 AM)

Hi, everyone. Let's get right to some fantasy football chat....

Marc (Big D)

Holy Pierre Thomas Batman! Good to see him back in there and rolling. Does that performance win him his job back?

Christopher Harris
  (11:03 AM)

Hi, Marc. I think the short answer is "yes," though I don't really think it can be said that he lost the job in the first place. He was hurt, and apparently he was dehydrated in the first half, which is why he didn't play at *all* and lost a TD to Lynell Hamilton. But yeah, I'd have to say he's back....

Henry (NY, NY)

Percy Harvin an automatic flex start now?

Christopher Harris
  (11:06 AM)

Hi, Henry. Well, regular readers know I've been saying "no no no" to Percy all season. He returned a kickoff for a TD. He's got two tiny red-zone receptions for TDs. I know you've benefited from having him in there -- but past performance doesn't indicate future returns. I will say this: having watched that game yesterday, Harvin was targeted a *bunch*, even if several of them came during the frenetic last drive. I'm not calling him an automatic start, because he's not scoring 16 TDs this year. But I admit -- seeing him get that many looks in the passing game makes me consider ranking him a bit higher next week.

Mike (Rockport)

Is Julius Jones becoming a reliable fantasy option?

Christopher Harris
  (11:07 AM)

Hi, Mike. Another guy I've been really low on, who's playing better than I thought. But I still view him as a "sell high." I'm less equivocal on him than I am on Harvin -- I think he's got fluke written all over him. His TD yesterday was the result of unbelievably bad tackling, and his Week 2 production was essentially nil. In part it's not any of the Seahawks' skill players' faults, because there are so many injuries on that o-line. But I'm not a Jones believer, no sir.

Chuck (NYC)

Talk to me about the gore injury...any word on the severity?

Christopher Harris
  (11:08 AM)

Hi, Chuck. There are words, but they conflict. The Niners claims talk of a high-ankle sprain is premature. But that word is out there, and it doesn't seem like anyone expects him to play next week. Glen Coffee didn't look great yesterday, but hopefully if you were a Gore owner, you handcuffed Coffee. Coffee should be owned in all leagues.

Matt Forte (Chicago)

What is going on with me. Is this Jay Cutler's fault?

Christopher Harris
  (11:09 AM)

Well, Forte looked better. But Seattle stuck eight in the box and had Jay Cutler beat them, and Cutler did it. I'm not giving up on Forte yet. I think teams are going to have to re-think the whole "Have Cutler Beat Us" thing after the past two weeks.

Andrew (Indiana)

Is Ray Rice worth targeting a buy low candidate?

Christopher Harris
  (11:11 AM)

Hi, Andrew. Well, I mean, at this point his ceiling looks limited by the fact that he's probably not scoring many TDs. McGahee has five already. Of course, for the second time in three weeks, Rice *was* the more involved guy of the duo, so he's certainly got a lot of value. If you could get him for next to nothing, sure, I don't mind that. But you can't look at him as if he's a no-questions-asked starter right now, because McGahee has more value as the TD maker.

Calvin (Detroit)

I thought I would have had better fantasy numbers. Will I ever be an every week start?

Christopher Harris
  (11:11 AM)

C'mon, man. You can't manage a fantasy football team this way. Guys get shut down a little bit every once in a while. It happens. Megatron will be fine.

Justin (St Paul)

Who do you like more going forward Benson or Mcgahee?

Christopher Harris
  (11:12 AM)

Hi, Justin. Well, I had Benson like 10 spots or so higher in my year-end ranks last Tuesday, and I didn't see that much this week to make me change my mind. I still think it's probably Benson.

Nick (CT)

Who do you think is the No. 1 Pickup of the week!?: I have both AP and Roddy White out on Byes, and need a solid pickup to play. I was thinking Pierre Garcon. After him, then....

Christopher Harris
  (11:13 AM)

Hi, Nick. Glen Coffee.

Justin (St Paul)

Who do you like more as a QB1 for the rest of the season Ryan or Big Ben?

Christopher Harris
  (11:13 AM)

Hi, Justin. I still think Matt Ryan.

John (FL)

Is Willie a sell high since he had one good game? Or is he back?

Christopher Harris
  (11:14 AM)

Hi, John. Sell sell sell! He's not catching little dumpoffs and taking them to the house every week.

Rigidy (Hartford)

Any new news on the Kevin Smith injury?

Christopher Harris
  (11:14 AM)

Hi, Rigidy. No word from the Lions that I've heard. This one is less clear than Gore's, where the concensus seems to be that we won't see Gore for a few weeks (though that's by no means certain). I think Jim Schwartz will have a press conference later today, and he might shed some light. All we know is it's a shoulder.

Matt (Grand Rapids)

Should I try to trade Forte and/or Slaton at this point or just hang on to them and hope they improve their numbers (perhaps maybe score a TD).

Christopher Harris
  (11:16 AM)

Hi, Matt. I don't know what else you can do. Who's going to give you fair value for those guys? In fantasy football, unfortunately, the right draft pick can play like garbage for you. But he can also turn it on in a heartbeat and look like a winner again in a single game. The encouraging thing is that both Slaton and Forte looked better in Week 3. Just watching them run, they had more open spaces, and they did more with them. You can't predict touchdowns. Nobody can. What you want are opportunities, and I think these two will continues to get lots of 'em.

Bryan (Pitt)

Trade F. Jones and Welker for Slaton? Non ppr league ... I think slaton gets back on track and gets is goalline touches back ... what do you think?

Christopher Harris
  (11:18 AM)

Hi, Bryan. I'm not sure I'd do that deal, because we have no idea about the severity of Welker's knee. There's a chance he's just fine next week. Or not. But wait and see what Barber's deal is tonight. Your larger question, about Slaton getting goal-line touches: so far, that's not happening. The Texans gave Chris Brown a "vote of confidence" after his fumble cost them yesterday's game, meaning for at least another week, Brown's still the goal-line guy. Another killer fumble like that, though? All bets would be off.

scott (orlando)

I'm pushing to trade Benson for Forte and think it may get accepted...good move??

Christopher Harris
  (11:19 AM)

Hi, Scott. I still think it's a good move, yes. Of course, you'd be doing it on faith, since Benson has obviously outperformed Forte in all respects so far this year. I'm not ready to say Benson's a definite sell-high no matter what. But in this case, I think Forte is a better player. Cross your fingers, though. No sure things in this biz.

Jeremy (Phoenix)

What do you expect from Lynch when he returns?

Christopher Harris
  (11:20 AM)

Hi, Jeremy. It's a good question. The only thing I feel like I can say for certain (because it's not like I'm in the Bills' front office deciding these things) is that Fred Jackson has earned a bigger place at the table than just a mere handcuff. He didn't play great yesterday, but taken as a whole, his three games as starter were a success. I think the situation stays as muddied as so many other NFL backfields are right now.

Ted (Montpellier, France)

Dude! You need to dispense some of your wisdom for us PORTIS owners. What do we do now? Which WR can we get in return?

Christopher Harris
  (11:21 AM)

Hi, Ted. Well, I tried to convince you not to *draft* him. Was that not good enough? Portis's woes don't surprise me. He hates Jim Zorn. He hates this offense. They didn't run but like 5 times in the first half yesterday. Ladell Betts seems to be playing *every* third down. The o-line is banged up. It's a mess. I don't know what you can get for him in a trade. I'm assuming it wouldn't be much.

Ed (Dallas)

Is McFadden worth holding on to, especially if I could drop him for Benson?

Christopher Harris
  (11:22 AM)

Hi, Ed. Yeah, I don't think you can just drop players like McFadden, though you must be in a mighty shallow league if Cedric Benson isn't owned. (Benson should be owned. Surely there's someone with less upside on your team you can dump to get him?) The Raiders are a complete cluster____ right now, obviously, but DMC has talent, and it wouldn't be the first time an offense looked horrible for a while then turned it around. If someone drops McFadden in your league, pick him up, stick him on your bench and wait.

dave (home)

is lance moore worth holding on to or should i drop him for garcon?

Christopher Harris
  (11:24 AM)

Hi, Dave. I feel *feh* about both guys. Garcon is an interesting prospect, for sure, but he'll be as up-and-down as any young receiver. Remember how Mario Manningham was going to catch a touchdown every week for the rest of his life? By the same token, I haven't liked Moore all summer or fall, and he's got a bad hammy. So I don't mind ditching him for Garcon's upside.

Bob (Columbia, SC)

Do you believe in "The Sanchise"? Enough to drop Broken Rib Hasselbeck to pick him up??

Christopher Harris
  (11:25 AM)

Hi, Bob. "Believe" is a relative term. Do I think he can make a bye-week fill-in? I do. More than that, and I'm skeptical. Take away his running TD yesterday (which the Titans almost did with that big hit) and his fantasy day looks just so-so. It's a conservative, run-first team that won't give him the opportunity to post many huge days. But yeah, I mean, I have him and Hasselbeck rated right next to one another, like 20th and 21st or something.

Daniel (Ann Arbor)

Hey, Don't Hate! Mario Manningham put up a very solid fantasy day for a third WR.

Christopher Harris
  (11:26 AM)

You're right, Daniel, but my point is that there are a lot of questions (I can see 'em scrolling by on the right here) asking if he should be dropped. I'm *not* hating Manningham at all. I'm just saying it's not worth freaking out over the Pierre Garcons of the world, because they're not going to score TDs every week. It's not how the game works.

Mike (Ann Arbor, MI)

Thoughts on McNabb returning week 5? Should I add Kolb as insurance?

Christopher Harris
  (11:28 AM)

Um, I'm sort of indifferent about that. I really prefer not to handcuff QBs if I can at all help it, and I don't think of McNabb's injury as a long-term one. I do think he'll be back in Week 5, and I do think he'll be fine. And honestly, for all the hyperventilating about Kolb, I didn't think he played particularly wonderfully in either of his two starts. He was OK yesterday, but it was mostly dink-and-dunk stuff, and two of the shorties just happened to get broken for long TDs. It was the Chiefs, so I'm not losing my mind over it, y'know?

Steve (Denver)

Was Cadillac's 1st week a one week wonder or is he startable again at some point this season?

Christopher Harris
  (11:29 AM)

Hi, Steve. I think it's somewhere in the middle, probably. I mean, so much of fantasy value is opportunity, and before he got hurt, it looked like he'd get about half of the Bucs' RB opportunities. That has value in and of itself. Unfortunately, now his knee isn't right (which is why I kept ranking Derrick Ward higher than Caddy even after Week 1 -- the man's knees aren't good). I'd say whether or not he has any value going forward depends on (a) his knee; (b) whether Ward can run away with the job. Ward didn't do that in Week 3, obviously.

Dave (Dallas)

What is your take on Cowboys RB's tonight. thanks

Christopher Harris
  (11:30 AM)

Hi, Dave. Well, again, I can't tell you definitively whether Marion Barber plays, because nobody can. If I had to guess, I'll guess that he won't, because why take a chance and you've got two other good options. If Barber's active, he probably has the most value. If not, the value is probably split pretty evenly between Jones and Choice.

Sam (Madison, WI)

I've been patient with Anthony Gonzalez through a couple of weeks now and am wondering if it makes sense to continue doing so?

Christopher Harris
  (11:31 AM)

Well, Sam, I guess that depends on how desperately you need help in the short term. I mean, is there any reason to be *less* patient with Gonzo right now than there was two weeks ago, when you found out he was going to be out for a month? You weren't expecting to get points out of him the past couple weeks, right? By the same token, if you've found that you just don't have enough quality WR options in the short term, I get your meaning. Only you can really decide that. But I do think Gonzo will be back in a few weeks.

matt (santa barbara)

Is the current market value for TO lower than his future production this season? In other words, should I just hold on to him and hope?

Christopher Harris
  (11:32 AM)

Hi, Matt. Yes and yes. Don't mean to be flip, but you summed it up just right. And this goes for everyone who's sending me questions freaking out about their star who hasn't done anything yet -- what other options do you have? Unfortunately, it's the frustrating part of fantasy football. Our beds are made...

Joe (Richmond)

Hey Christopher! How do you think Chad Ochocinco looked yesterday? Still top 10 WR? And what about Brandon Marshall scoring - is he an automatic start again?

Christopher Harris
  (11:34 AM)

Hi, Joe. I haven't watched the game film on DEN/OAK yet, so all I really know are the highlights and the box score. By the time I write the Breakdown Friday, I'll be able to weigh in smarter (because I'll have watched). My understanding is that he looked better, and was on the sidelines less. As for Ochocinco, yeah, I still think he's a top 10 guy, I do. Andre Caldwell got the game winner instead of Ocho, which is frustrating, but again, you can't chase touchdowns. It's all about the opportunities. Ocho got 11 targets. Can't ask for much more.

Ted (Montpellier, France)

Would you trade Portis away for Marshall straight up? Housh? Welker? Thanks!

Christopher Harris
  (11:35 AM)

If I could get Marshall for Portis, I probably would do that. Same for Welker, though obviously that's much more of a gamble. As for Housh -- I'd like to see Hasselbeck get well first.

Reggie (Denver)

After 3 weeks, which D's do you view as emerging fantasy defenses?

Christopher Harris
  (11:36 AM)

Hi, Reggie. The two I talked about on Fantasy Focus last Friday, San Francisco and Cincinnati, didn't do anything to change my mind on them this week. They're not going to be every-week starts heedless of matchups, but they're damn good, and they can be owned over defenses like, say, Carolina.

Alison (TX)

Who is th ebetter pickup - Fred Taylor or Jerome Harrison?

Christopher Harris
  (11:37 AM)

Hi, Alison. I think I'd have to say Taylor. I don't know how long term Jamal Lewis' injury is, and the Browns won't always be playing the Ravens. But Laurence Maroney got dinged up yesterday (surprise!), though the extent of that injury is (surprise!) unknown. Taylor looked good. He won't always get that many carries, especially in that tough matchup next week against the Ravens. But I'd pick him over Harrison.

Al (DC)

Would you drop D. Brown or D. Ward for Coffee?

Christopher Harris
  (11:38 AM)

Hi, Al. Phew. I don't think Ward, no. But Brown? Boy, I'd like to have a clearer assessment of Gore's ankle before I made that move. Brown has a lot of potential, and I think he's just a better *player* than Coffee. But if Gore's out for two months? You'd have to say Coffee is more worth owning. Wish I could be more definitive. I think if I had to decide this moment, not knowing Gore's prognosis, I would probably stand pat (or find someone else to dump for Coffee...).

JoLiET JaKE (Joliet, IL)

How serious is it to worry about guys like Royal and Avery?

Christopher Harris
  (11:39 AM)

Hi, Jake. Well, you can worry about Avery. Laurent Robinson did get hurt yesterday (don't know the extent of that one yet, either), but I don't see the Rams trusting Avery very much. Keenan Burton seemed to get more run. As for Royal -- I think you can worry, and as I was saying last week, I don't think you start him until you see something from him. But I don't think you cut him, either. He's bench fodder until he consistently gets it together. Even Brandon Marshall, I might want to see him do it once more before I started him.

Steve (MI)

Some one just freaked out and dropped TO and Knowshon, do I drop Derrick Ward for one of them?

Christopher Harris
  (11:41 AM)

Hi, Steve. Does it have to be Ward you drop? I would say T.O. is worth more than Ward. But I'd rather not have to drop Ward at all -- I think he's a really good player who'll be very good if he gets chance (I mean, the whole stupid Tampa offense rushed it 10 times yesterday, five for Ward.) I'd rather grab T.O. than Moreno, but I'd rather find someone else other than Ward to do it with. (If you want more specifics, friend me on Facebook and ask me there...)

Joe (CR Iowa)

Is Shonn Greene worth holding onto any longer?

Christopher Harris
  (11:42 AM)

Hi, Joe. Well, you're from Iowa, so I know there's some extra sentiment there. But yeah, unless you're in a keeper league and you have him on the cheap, I'm betting you can find a better use for that roster spot.

Sammy (Miami)

Is it time to cut TJ Housh loose??? I need another solid WR and nobody even wants him in a trade. Patrick Crayton and Pierre Gacon are available and I think I may just drop a top 20 WR. Do you think he could turn around??

Christopher Harris
  (11:44 AM)

Hi, Sammy. Yeah, he can definitely turn it around. He's got a track record of it, right? Now, I tried to warn folks off of Housh when he wound up in Seattle, but the folks in the rankings meetings were all so high on him, I had to relent. I don't think the West Coast offense is a natural fit for his skills. But he also needs a healthy Matt Hasselbeck throwing to him, in my opinion (not that Seneca Wallace didn't throw it downfield yesterday, 'cuz he did). Long answer short: I like Housh better than Crayton or Garcon.

Mark (Austin, TX)

I own Leon Washington and Thomas Jones, which is fairly frustrating. What type of process do I go through to determine who starts? Bad run D = Jones??

Christopher Harris
  (11:46 AM)

Hi, Mark. Frustration. I know its sting. Unfortunately, that's a situation that's getting duplicated around the globe in many backfields right now, which is why the guys who have solo jobs to themselves continue to be the best bets. (Which is why you don't give up on Matt Forte.) How do you pick? It's so tough. Flip a coin. They're going to get even touches. I don't think there'll be any rhyme or reason about who scores the most fantasy points. Jones would *seem* to be the slightly better bet to get a red-zone TD. Maybe that tips the scales in his favor slightly. Your best bet (this is not necessarily a nice thing to say, karma-wise) is for one of 'em to get hurt.

Earl (Overland Park, KS)

Need WR help. Bennett (Chi) or Sims-Walker (Jax)?

Christopher Harris
  (11:47 AM)

Hi, Earl. Um, neither? I don't love either one. I guess MSW is a slightly better fantasy bet, just because the Jags have fewer receiving targets and Sims-Walker is a better bet to get downfield. But Bennett is been a good story in two of three weeks (remember all the questions last week about dropping him and leaving him for dead?). I don't think either guy is going to be consistent enough to start every week.

Earl (Overland Park, KS)

My D's are Denver and NE. I agree with you about SF and Cinc. Which would you pick up first? Which D should I drop?

Christopher Harris
  (11:48 AM)

Hm. I think SF would be my favorite between the two. And I guess I still think the Broncos are a mirage created by bad offensive opponents. Though it's tough to drop a D that's given up (I believe) the fewest points in football through three weeks....

Christopher Harris
  (11:48 AM)

Hm. I think SF would be my favorite between the two. And I guess I still think the Broncos are a mirage created by bad offensive opponents. Though it's tough to drop a D that's given up (I believe) the fewest points in football through three weeks....

Todd (Chapel Hill, NC)

I've tried to find you on facebook, but haven't been able to locate you. There are more than 500 Christopher Harris listings. I tried to filter for ESPN workplace and/or Bristol. Little help.

Christopher Harris
  (11:49 AM)

Hi, Todd. You can find me at http://www.facebook.com/writerboy.

Kevin (VA)

Chris, will Tom Brady ever get his "mechanics" figured out? Do I try and trade him before his value gets any lower?

Christopher Harris
  (11:51 AM)

Hi, Kevin. I thought Brady looked better yesterday. There was some bad wide receiver play from guys like Joey Galloway and Sam Aiken and Julian Edelman, which makes you realize how much Brady's value hinges on Wes Welker coming back. Put it this way: I think you can probably still back up the truck and get a lot for Brady. I'm not convinced it's the smartest thing to do, because I think he'll be back, especially in the second half of the year, when he's further removed from his injury and the schedule lets up. But it's gonna get worse next week vs. the Ravens before it gets better, probably.

Haden (Memphis)

Is the Saints' D a "mirage" too? You have to think they are going to continue to create turnovers. Will Tenn D turn it around?

Christopher Harris
  (11:52 AM)

Hi, Haden. Those are good questions. I think the Titans defense has problems in its secondary, and might be a shaky start against elite passing offenses, but otherwise, it's still pretty good. They lost yesterday because a punt returner fumbled twice in crucial situations. As for the Saints -- boy, I'm not sure *what* to make of 'em yet. I don't respect the secondary. I don't really love the linebackers. They're getting some pretty good pressure up the middle, though. I need to watch that game again before I can be definitive about it.

Justin (Chicago)

How do you have Shockey going forward? He got plenty of targets and led the Saints in catches yesterday, if only a total of 45 yards. Thoughts?

Christopher Harris
  (11:53 AM)

Hi, Justin. Yeah, I mean, I think Shockey is a pretty consistent low-level TE1. He has to fight for looks, but when defenses do what Buffalo did yesterday: play back, go vanilla, protect against the big play...you'd hope Shockey *would* lead the team in targets...

Nick (WI)

Is it safe to drop Mike Bell now that Pierre Thomas is back?

Christopher Harris
  (11:54 AM)

It really depends on a lot of things, Nick. What else is available in your league, how many other RBs you own, etc. Bell will still be a viable handcuff within a few weeks...he has the same knee thing that Pierre Thomas had to start the year. So I'm not ready to say that he's a must-drop.

Damitri (Lafayette)

Nate burlson or kevin walters?

Christopher Harris
  (11:56 AM)

Hi, Damitri. I'm going to say Walters, still. I had Burleson rated higher than almost anyone I know entering the year (it was maddening having to fight off the "Deion Branch" crowd in our rankings meeting this spring), but I'll admit that his hands in the past have been pretty inconsistent. So now that Walter's back and healthy, I think I prefer him.

Rob (MD)

What's your take on the bears' recievers: olsen, hester, bennett, and knox? Who among them is startable?

Christopher Harris
  (11:57 AM)

Hi, Rob. I think Olsen is the most startable of that group -- he finally caught a TD, and he and Forte led the team in targets. The others have promise, but they cannibalize from one another and it'd just be too tough to pick from among them from week to week, I think.

Riaz (OH)

Chris would you drop Antonio Bryant for Garcon? I am just getting impatient with Bryant and don't see his value even in the future.

Christopher Harris
  (11:58 AM)

Hi, Riaz. I probably wouldn't do it. I agree that Bryant's prospects are uncertain, though he did say last night that he doesn't have swelling in his knee anymore. Mostly, it's that I don't think Garcon will be a consistent enough producer to justify it.

kc (oakland)

Would Mo Morris or Brown be a worthy pickup if Kevin Smith is out?

Christopher Harris
  (11:59 AM)

Hi, KC. Honestly, I don't know. I think Morris is probably *likelier* to have fantasy value, but heck, Jerome Felton could get involved and steal goal-line touches, too. My guess would be that none of the Lions RBs would be worth much if Kevin Smith is out, except maybe in a deeper league.

MIke G (NYC)

Does Coffee have more value for the season than my speculative Justin Forsett acquisition? If he starts more than one week, I'm leaning toward yes. I have Jamal Lewis and I have my doubts about just getting Harrison...

Christopher Harris
  (12:00 PM)

Hi, Mike. Yes, I think by any measure right now, Coffee is worth more than Forsett.

Paul (Cleveland, OH)

Who would you drop between Jamal Lewis and Mike Bell?

Christopher Harris
  (12:00 PM)

Hi, Paul. If I had to drop one, it'd be Bell.

kashi lee (venice, ca)

I have Schefler as my second TE and of course he has not done much. Drop him for Davis? He has burned me the past two years....

Christopher Harris
  (12:00 PM)

Hi, Kashi. Yeah, I think Davis is worth more than Scheffler. But the larger point is: why do you need to own two TEs?

Keenan Burton (The Lou)

What's my value?

Christopher Harris
  (12:01 PM)

Not much.

Dan (DC)

An angry Olsen owner dropped him last week in my league...is he an upgrade over Carlson?

Christopher Harris
  (12:01 PM)

I tend to think so, Dan. They both belong to that vast middle ground of TEs who are very talented and from week to week can help or hurt you. But Carlson stayed in to block an awful lot this week, meaning Olsen had the leg up. I have Olsen rated higher.

Kyle (Miami)

Thoughts on the Denver running back committee? Is Knowshon a solid RB2?

Christopher Harris
  (12:02 PM)

Hi, Kyle. No, I don't think Moreno is a solid No. 2 RB -- but he's usable there occasionally and he's a good flex. The platoon is working so far in Denver, and I don't think the team will go away from it until it stops working. Moreno probably gets a slight edge over Buckhalter, but they're cannibalizing one another.

Christopher Harris
  (12:03 PM)

All right, gang...I have to get writing, so one more question for this chat...fremember, though, so far I'm answering *every* question I get on Facebook, so if you're frustrated by this, you can get me there.

Jason (Washington DC)

Would you drop C. Wells for G. Coffee at this point? I just feel like Wells isn't making any ground on Hightower...

Christopher Harris
  (12:04 PM)

Hi, Jason. Yeah, I know the feeling, but the real problem in Arizona is that the Cardinals just can't get themselves in a spot where they commit to the run. It's frustrating. I think I'd need to know Gore's prognosis before I could pull the trigger. If he's out longer term, yeah, I'd do it. If not, I still think Wells has a chance to do something in the second half....

Christopher Harris
  (12:05 PM)

All right -- I've gotta go write. So listen -- we got way more than 1,000 questions here, and I can tell from the, shall we say, *desperation* in some of them, you're feeling peeved that I didn't get to yours. Alas, there's only so fast I can type. But I really am doing my best to answer every question I get on Facebook. Friend me at http://www.facebook.com/writerboy and ask away, and I'll do my best. Thanks for coming to the chat -- I really appreciate it, and I hope to show you *how much* I appreciate it by doing the Facebook thing. I wouldn't get to do this great and fun job without your support. Thanks again.
