I don’t love or hate Brett Favre.  I am glad he is around so I can add words and phrases like osteoporosis, One A Day Men’s 50+ Advantage, Extenze, etc to my posts, but watching him throw that game winner to Greg Lewis was just awesome.  Will he put up more games like that? Probably.  Enough of them to help you win your league?  Probably not.  But that made me remember why I loved football and some more sappy crap like that.  Here are some other thoughts from Sunday’s games:

Kevin Smith: He ran for 100 yards, won his first game as a Lion and hurt his shoulder. Not sure how bad it is, but he was seen trying on one of Megatron’s replacement arms.

Frank Gore: He could be sidelined for a week or two with a high ankle sprain.  If Coffee is available pour yourself a cup.  And you should have listened to this dude, he’s wicked smaht.

Knowshon Moreno: He had a nice game against the Raiders and ran for his first TD, but he was actually outplayed by Correll Buckhalter.  Bucky isn’t going anywhere as long he keeps running well, but with Hillis getting banged up and Jordan being absolutely the opposite of Jordanesque, Moreno should start to get the majority of the goalline carries.

Jay Cutler: The Bears aren’t the best team in the league, but Cutler has made them better and even though his wide receivers aren’t going to be fantasy studs they look good enough to make Cutler serviceable to good, serviceable goods even.

Mike Wallace: This newsman made the news on Sunday by catching 7 passes for 102 yards.  He is extremely fast and was good on third downs.  Santonio Holmes only had one catch, but that won’t happen that often.  With The Roethlisberger throwing more, Wallace should continue to get looks, but expect Holmes and Ward to continue to get the majority of the receptions.

Pierre Garcon: I think you can safely grab him.  Manning has dubbed him pass worthy.  He shall be Pierre Homme from now on.

Willie Parker: I did not see this one coming.  Maybe he wasn’t lying about his hamstring hurting, but I’m not lying when I tell you he will get hurt and won’t run well against good defenses.  If you can flip him to someone who is worried about LT or Westbrook, do it, but not for those guys, they rot.

Drew Brees: Zero touchdowns, less than 200 yards?  Why God?!!! Why?  I’m guessing that some defensive coordinators will be checking the tape of that game out from the library.  Most defensive coordinators are cheap.

Pierre Thomas: He did bupkis in the first half and then went all OJ on Buffalo in the second half.  He will be the starter as long as Bell is out and if he continues to run like that I don’t see Bell taking the job back.  Just don’t take any of his memorabilia or his wife.

Terrell Owens: His first no catch game since ’97.  There is no reason to think he will have another catch the rest of the season.  Well, he might catch one or two.  If someone wants to buy low say, “how low can you go?”

Maurice Jones-Drew: The new LT did his thing with 3 TDs and 147 total yards.  So you are happy you grabbed MJD.  I’m happy for you.  Let’s all do a happy dance.  Ok, enough of that.

Kevin Kolb: The guy can put up numbers I’ll give him that, but that’s all I got for him.  I’m not a giveaway free shizzatorium.  McNabb will be back after the bye, but as soon as he looks at a fan cross eyed they’ll be calling for Kolb.

Byron Leftwich: If I were a Bucs fan I would take up a hobby of some sort.  Bird watching is fun.

Laurent Robinson: The St. Louis Post Dispatch thinks his MCL injury could be serious.  Wait for news on this, but that would suck.  He’s their best receiver and after Bulger left the game with an injury at least Boller looked like he wanted to play football.

Nate Burleson: The Seahawks offense was better than I expected with Wallace at the helm.  Burleson had 9 catches for 109 yards. I’d pick him up if I were you and I needed to pick up a receiver.

Julius Jones: So I guess he likes playing at home.  You may have drafted him because we here at Razzball headquarters had him ranked higher than elsewhere and you put your fantasy fate in our hands.  And then you saw him suck like some kind of high powered flesh covered sucking machine in San Francisco and I could hear you all cussing me, and I was sad.  But he came back and trumpeted the call of Razzballers everywhere!

Brandon Marshall: He is still the Broncos best receiver and he finally looked close to it against the Raiders.  McDaniels is riding his horses around in a weird rotation that is frankly dropping horse apples all over fantasy rosters.

Eddie Royal: He just slipped in some apple juice.  Okay, this metaphor has gone awry.  Royal is not getting nearly the targets of last year.  I’m sitting him until he gets thrown to more.

Kevin Walter: If someone dropped him after his injury, pick him up, brush him off, lube him up, and insert him into your #3 slot. Was the lube too much? Well, if I left it out that would really hurt.

Derek Anderson: Quinn the Eskimo was ice cold and was pulled for Anderson who promptly threw 3 interceptions.  This is not good news for any Browns players. I may be QBing for the Browns next Sunday and that would not be pretty.

Chad Pennington: He is already doubtful for next week.  Chad Henne would get the start, but they’d probably be better off if they just had Ronnie Brown run the wildcat all game and while they’re at it he could play linebacker and wide receiver and he could sew the jerseys and charter the plane and . . .

    Brees and Gore may have just saved my season….0-2 after two unlucky losses, facing the league leader who was starting Brees, Colston, and Gore.

    I’m up by 26 and need to avoid a 100 yard, 2 TD performance from Witten tonight. Anything less than that and I’m golden!

    @timSTi: I don’t think he’ll play.

    @mgeoffriau: Same here on the Gore front. I was up against Gore and his injury really helped me out. I need Dallas’ D to get 9 points tonight to win one league. I’m not holding my breath with the way they’ve been playing, but I’m crossing my fingers.

    @Doc: I dropped Dallas for Denver…not sure what I’ll do next week, but the 2 picks and 3 points against sure helped this week.

    On a side note, I was really conflicted about drafting Rivers…I just don’t like him, too much talking and bluster during games. But I’m really excited about him this year. Great offensive talent around him, and that defense isn’t good enough to put teams away. I think he’ll have to keep throwing all year for the Chargers to stay in games.

    Oh, also: Celek is (amazingly) still available in my league. Drop Winslow for him? Or stand pat?

    @mgeoffriau: I think it’s worth it.

    @Doc: Cool, I was thinking it would be. The QB situation in TB worries me more than the QB situation in Philly. Celek seems to keep getting looks regardless of the game or QB. Weekly waivers in my league so I might not get him but it’s worth a shot.

    Will have a bye-week QB question later today when I have my shit together. Thanks!

    alright, i think i give up on shiancoe. should i give vernon davis a chance? or is this one of those “look how great i can be before i don’t get targeted for the rest of the season” games?

    also – what’s up with the titans defense? they looked very serviceable against pittsburgh, at least a top 12 defense. for the past 2 weeks it’s been no better than a no. 2 defense… i’m leaning towards bengals, or chargers instead.

  10. Denys says:
    (link)

    @Denys: or colts, saints – defenses… i dunno, there seem to be better options out there these days.

  11. Doc says:
    (link)

    @Denys:Id drop shiancoe for Davis. Yeah it’s time to bail on Tennessee. They can stop the run but that’s it. I haven’t looked closely at the matchups yet but there are probably better options out there. I don’t see any d being dominant all year this year.

    @Doc: I’m a dumbass, just realized Celek has a bye in Week 4. Guess I’ll roll one more week with Winslow.

    Trade accepted. I just got Forte for Addai & Larry Johnson. Hopefully this season my first trade doesn’t bite me in the ass like last year…

    Welker and Ant Gonzo are killing me. I have Flacco, Sproles, Leon Wash, and Lendale riding the pine. Which one of those should I move for a WR? And what type of guy should I target? Or is Welker going to be fine soon?

    Thanks.

  16. Drew

    Drew says:
    (link)

    @Scott: PPR or non-PPR? If it’s PPR I’d lose Lendale. I think Welker will be fine they’re just being cautious with him. Your targets depend on how deep your league is. Is it 10 or 12 team? If it’s 12 w/ 2 flex spots there won’t be much out there and it won’t be worth dropping any of them. I would be loathe to let Washington go, even in trade. There is a good chance he’ll be the starter by the end of the season and if he is he’ll do what Sproles has been doing.

    @mgeoffriau: if you need a 1 week wonder at D again, i’d highly recommend looking at SF. they get STL at home. this season i’ve gone SD -> ATL -> DEN -> SF with my Ds and it’s worked out pretty well thus far.

    @mgeoffriau: @Doc: flip that around and you should be the guy starting gore and brees yesterday. they combined for 3 points for me, yet somehow i won this week and still put up a middle of the pack scoring # (thanks reggie wayne, steve smith (nyg), and denver D).

    Before this Sunday’s games, I traded Driver and Orange Julius for Greg Jennings. I shouldn’t be worried about Driver stealing the spotlight in GB and Jones turning out to be a serviceable RB2, should I?

  19. mgeoffriau

    mgeoffriau says:

    @ThePoonTycoon: Yeah, I was eyeing SF. Definitely don’t want to test Denver with Dallas’s offense. NE is available but I don’t like that matchup either.

    Likewise, I’m considering Shaun Hill for my Week 4 bye fill-in (Rivers). Other options would be Sanchez, Collins, Jason Campbell, Cassel, Stafford, Leftwich. I think Hill is the best of that bunch for Week 4.

    Trade L T for calvin johnson? Seems a bit much but if L T only plays half the games, then…If not CJ, then what type of WR should I target for L T?

  21. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Sos: If you can get CJ go for it. I would be happy with that as long as you have a RB to replace LT which you must since he doesn’t play much.

    I just got offered Ray Rice and Jason Witten for Steven Jackson. It’s a pretty standard H2H league. My current tight end is Jeremy Shockey and i have good running back depth, but no standouts other than Jackson.

    My initial thought is to turn down the trade, but Witten’s damn good and i don’t pretend to know much about football so i’ll default to you guys:
    What do you think?

    Thanks.

  23. Doc

    Doc says:

    @brett: No, that guy is scared that McGahee is stealing all Rice’s TD’s. Keep SJax.

  24. Doc

    Doc says:
    (link)

    @Nick: Cool

    @stumanji: I think you’ll be good. Julius will be off and on and Jennings will be the #1 WR.

    There is a guy in my league who drafted heavy on RB’s; he’s got Slaton, Portis, Addai, J Stewart, McGehee and Buckhalter. He just made a post saying he wants to trade for a QB or WR. I’m thinking of trying Flacco (my backup to Schaub) for Slaton (classic buy low, sell high), but I not sure who to go for after he rejects that one. I mean, Portis and Addai pretty much suck. Do I target McGehee next? Or should I keep Flacco because I know Schaub will get hurt as soon as the trade is final?
