If you’re observant one thing you’ll notice is that past the “Waivers” section I almost completely ignore receivers. Earlier on in the season you can make the argument for stashing wideouts because legitimate studs emerge from the embers on a regular basis.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I can tell you I usually only watch snippets of most football games, but I watched that whole 99 yard game winning drive by Vince Young and it was neato. I was impressed by Young’s arm and not just his ability to run. He’s won 9 straight over the past 5 years or so and he’s making a case to get into fantasy lineups. He is definitely worth a pickup if you’ve been running schmohawks out there on a consistent basis. I grabbed him in a league I have Garrard and Alex Smith in. If I owned Cutler I’d be grabbing whoever has a pulse.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There’s still a lot of uncertainty floating around out there in Fantasy Football about who is or isn’t going to play. A lot of studs are going to be game time decisions. So a reminder to all you Razzballers out there- stay tuned to the “Comments” section of this article for our continuing updates on all these situations.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Ben Roethlisberger talked to Coach Tomlin and informed him he might want to be able to tell his grand kids about winning Super Bowls instead of drooling on them, so he’s listed as questionable, but I have a feeling he’ll end up playing anyway. The alternative is Dennis Dixon going up against the Ravens on Sunday Night Football. Big Ben might sacrifice himself for Dixon. I’ll be checking his hands for stigmata.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Sunday 1 PM games
Tampa Bay (32nd) @ Atlanta (24th)
Coach Morris said that Ernest Graham’s role will increase in the offense. This is terrible news for Cadillac and Ward owners. The uncertainty of the touch splitting renders all three of them irrelevant.Please, blog, may I have some more?
While I was writing this article, Doc and I started discussing the importance of looking at the most recent performances from a defense instead of relying on the full season’s worth of data. In fantasy baseball, the danger is in placing too much importance in small sample sizes, but in fantasy football, I’d argue that the opposite is true — there’s at least as much if not more danger in relying on large sample sizes.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’ve got a lot of questions to answer this week. Will Julius Jones take away carries from Justin Forsett against the hapless Rams? Will Cedric Benson be ready to go against the horrid Cleveland defense or do we get some more Bernard Scott?Please, blog, may I have some more?
So who do you want leading your fantasy team to glory this week? Ah, who cares. Play all your Thanksgiving players; you know you wanna! Thankfully if you have some Packers you should give thanks for the Detroit Lions ineptitude on defense.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Brandon Gibson - Gibson was a guy on my list last week after receiving nine targets as a result of Burton’s season ending injury and now he is back on after receiving a monstrous 17 targets on Sunday. Only Welker was targeted more often than Gibson though Welker did much more with his targets; he caught 15 passes for 192 yards compared to Gibson’s five catches for 61 yards. However, despite Gibson’s touchdown drop which cost his team a chance at overtime, his sheer number of targets over the last two games has been staggering. In fact, Gibson has amassed 26 targets over the past two games compared to teammate Donnie Avery who only has 14 targets in his last three. Here is a short list of players who have fewer targets in the last three games than Gibson has had in his last two: Jennings, Sims-Walker, Driver, Burleson, Ochocinco, Boldin, Vincent Jackson, and Marques Colston. On paper Gibson looks like filet mignon at the Golden Corral compared to his waiver wire friends, but before you get a half a Snickers bar in your pants remember that the one throwing him the rock is none other than…KYLE BOLLER!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Did you see “The Wizard” with Fred Savage? It’s this cheesy early 90’s movie with a climactic Nintendo showdown. Mario Brothers III was unveiled at the end. It was like, the future or something. I remember being so pumped about that game.Please, blog, may I have some more?
