Ahmad Bradshaw has been running on a split hoof and it could crack wide open at any moment. Do you think this means he’ll get more work? Me neither. I can’t say he’ll get less work, but Jacobs has been running better than earlier in the season and they’ll want to be careful with Bradshaw. If I had to make a wild guess, uh, prognostication, I’d say Jacobs is the one to own.Please, blog, may I have some more?
1 O’Clock Games
Houston (21st) @ Buffalo (32nd)
Steve Slaton is an automatic start regardless of matchup. The Bills defense isn’t as bad as you would assume. The offense makes their job a lot more difficult because they don’t stay on the field long enough.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The name of the game this week is injury management. Three members of the top tier of wide receivers (Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, and Reggie Wayne) are all dinged up heading into Week 8. Chris Cooley is out for at least a month, possibly the entire season.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So this week’s strategery has a new format to completely disorient and befuddle you! The first change is that I have added DVOA, which is a system developed by Football Outsiders to measure the true value of a defense. I like it to help offset the fantasy football points allowed to QBs/RBs which is easily skewed. As a whole I believe these four statistics; yards allowed per game, fantasy points allowed, yards given up per attempt, and DVOA help average these defenses into a ranking I feel comfortable with. The good thing with this chart is you can see each individual statistic and ranking if you like one more than another.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Mohamed Massaquoi: in addition to having the majority of all vowels in his name (except for that elusive “Y”) Massaquoi also gets the majority of targets. This past week he was targeted 9 times (4 more than Robiskie, the next closest receiver) and had two targets inside the five yard line. By now it’s clear that Massaquoi is the stud of the Brown’s offense though unfortunately that’s like being the toughest guy in France or having the best looking goiter in the nursing home. Either way, Massaquoi’s production potential makes him a must snag off the waiver wire or you could try to sneak him in with a multi-player trade. Through this point in the season, Massaquoi has accounted for 11% of his offensive targets, this despite being nearly invisible until his monster week 4 performance against Cincinnati.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A broken fibula seems like it might not be that bad. I mean fibula, it’s like a tiny lie or something, right? Well, whatever it is, Leon Washington is done for the season. I had high hopes for Washington and it’s sad to see him go, but life goes on so drop his ass for the guy that follows or the guy that follows that guy.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sunday’s finally here! To start things off we have our “Matchup Savers,” players that you can start today if you’re in a pinch due to the bye week, injuries, etc. I do all of this within the context of 12 team leagues that are competitive.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We are on the cusp of week 7. Before we know it the Colts will be 14-0 and we’ll be talking about if they should sit Manning or go for an undefeated season and blah friggin blah. I don’t want to be there yet!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here it is Ladies and Gents, the Ground Game Preview for Week 7. One thing I would like to reinforce about our “rating system,” which I have blatantly stolen from Mark, is that when we upgrade or downgrade a player we’re always doing so within the context of their value.Please, blog, may I have some more?
