Reggie Bush is hurt?  This can’t be!  The dude is worthless.  There is absolutely no reason to ever draft, trade for, or otherwise rely on this guy for anything.  He hasn’t practiced this week and his knee is swollen. He hasn’t been ruled out, but I wouldn’t start him or say nice things about him.

Ronnie Brown: I have yet to lament the fallen soldier.  Mr. Brown is done for the year.  The Razzball flag was flying at half mast at Razzball headquarters yesterday and will be for the remainder of the season. Thankfully the injury was to his foot instead of his knee and he should be ready to go for sleeper status next year.

Lex Hilliard: Lex isn’t going to take over Ricky’s place while Ricky takes over Ronnie’s.  Lex is Ricky’s backup not his wildcat partner, but with that offensive line and Ricky’s age it’s not a bad place to be.  He’s worth a stash.

Brian Westbrook: He’s out at least three weeks.  I really don’t see him coming back this season and if he does I don’t think he’ll stay back.  Can you drop him?  Hard to say.  If I owned him I would probably hold on, but if you’re in a shallow league and holding him can hurt you then I would let him go.

Bernard Berrian: I was fairly high on Bernard in preseason, but he has been struggling with a hamstring problem most of the season and just can’t get on track. Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin are enough to help the Vikings going through the air.

Dwayne Bowe: He’s out 4 weeks for PED’s and Chris Chambers and Lance Long will benefit from his absence, but they get the Steelers at home and the Steelers are the only team to have a winning record at Arrowhead, besides KC of course, but you could figure that out on your own, and why am I still talking?

Jamal Lewis: He gets the Lions and the lion’s share of the carries, and I still can’t recommend starting him.  I think that says something not so good about Jamal Lewis.  And now Jerome Harrison is in the dog house and Chris Jennings is the #2 RB.  Owning Browns running backs is hazardous to the health of your fantasy team.

Maurice Jones-Drew: He’s really good.  Oh, and he gets the Bison’s run defense.  I’m not saying to just start him, but to also bench your other players so it will be even more humiliating to your opponent when you beat him or her.

Jason Witten: If I had to vote right now I think I’d vote Witten the biggest fantasy failure of the year.  There are plenty of deserving nominees, but Kelly Rippa! he’s been a disappointment.  Many had him as the #1 overall tight end and really there was no way he should be any less than the top 3.  He is still a #2 TE, but I could see playing matchups off the waiver wire in games like the Redskins this weekend.

Joseph Addai: Before Donald Brown was injured there were some signs that he could make a move on that #1 running back position, but it looks like he might have lost his chance. Addai has been a big part of a perfect season so far and I doubt they are going to switch things up too soon.  Keep Brown firmly bench entrenched until further notice.

Randy Moss: You don’t sit Moss, but Darelle Revis has had his number. This will be a fun matchup to watch. Last week Moss was moved around a lot and got some mismatches against Indy, but this week he’ll be shadowed by Revis.  Look for Wes Welker to have a big game.

Knowshon Moreno: With Correll Buckhalter banged up and Moreno getting the bulk of the work last week I think we’ll continue to see Moreno featured in the matinee performances. He has a decent schedule and I’m looking forward to watching him play, especially against the Chargers.

Bernard Scott: We’ve been getting a lot of start/sit questions about Scott and as the week goes on I’m leaning more and more toward Scott having a big day.  Oakland is just plain inept and Scott has some skills as you could see on his kickoff return against the Steelers.  Get him into that flex position.

    Would you recommend Scott over Bradshaw?

  2. Nick says:

    Forte or McCoy for Sunday night?

  3. hideousmutants says:

    Start two of these four (non-ppr)

    Colston, Roddy, Boldin, Sid Rice

    thanks!

  4. vinko says:

    Would you start Favre over Rivers? (non ppr)

  5. MarkM says:

    I need to start 2 of 3 in PPR.

    Grant vst SF
    Gore @ GB
    Mendenhall @ KC

    I’m thinking of letting Gore sit out against the GB defense, but I also think their numbers are more a product of their schedule than an indicator of how well their defense handles the run. The part that scares me about them is that they handled AP decently.

    Which 2 do you start out of these three?

    Drew says:

    @Asdrubal Bastardo: yes, go with Scott

    @Nick: McCoy

    @hideousmutants: Colston, Boldin

    @vinko: No, go with Rivers

    @MarkM: Gore, Mendenhall

  7. Jim Parkey says:

    Would you start Snelling, McCoy or Betts

  8. ryan says:
    (link)

    Non PPR need two RBs: Hightower, Beanie, S. Jax, Slaton, or Pierre?
    and 3 WRs: Colston, Housh, Anquan, Miles Austin?

    2nd league: 2 trades available
    Trade Grant and Marshall for Rivers and Jacobs?? I have Gore & Chris Johnson, and McNabb and Cutler currently at qb.
    or
    Trade McNabb and Celek for Schaub and Visanthe/Carlson?

  9. stumanji says:

    I’m starting Ray Rice and LT at RB and Megatron and Giant Smith at WR. That leaves one flex for Maroney, Housh, Cotchery, Bradshaw, or Snelling. Who to start in a PPR?

  10. adamh says:

    Grant, Slaton, or Betts this weekend?

  11. Doc

    @Jim Parkey: McCoy

    @ryan: S. Jax, PT

    Colston, Anquan, Austin

    I like the second trade with Visanthe

    @stumanji: Tough, Maroney

    @adamh: Toss up between Slaton and Betts. Slaton for upside, Betts for safety.

  12. Doc

    Doc says:

    Just read that Slaton will start. Probably worth getting him into your lineups.

  13. jimbo says:

    Rivers or Big Ben? Can’t decide!

  14. jimbo says:
    (link)

    Oh, also meant to ask, since you are saying Slaton is a starter now… PPR can start one of them, Slaton, Beanie or Forsett? Already had Ricky go off for me on Thursday. Woot! Thanks for the recommendation on that one!

    Last question, I promise…which side do you fall on in this strategery scenario? I have Big Ben and Rivers. My opponent this week is starting Mendenhall and Hines Ward in a PPR league. If Ben and Rivers are equal plays do you prefer playing the QB that would be throwing to your opponents guys or playing the QB in a different game? Am I way overthinking this yet?

  16. Doc

    Doc says:

    @jimbo: I don’t like having my opponent’s WR’s QB if I can keep from it, but it only would come into play if I just can’t decide between the two. I like Ben by a little, but it is very close. I could see going either way.

    For me it’s between Beanie and Slaton. I think Beanie is going to have a good game and if Slaton happens to fumble Kubiak may ship him off to Canada.

    seems likely that benson will be out tomorrow: do you trust scott to be durable enough to play an entire game as the feature back and return man? would you start scott over hightower as RB2 in .5ppr? thanks

    0.5ppr…Pick 2 RBs

    Thomas Jones @NE
    Kevin Smith vsCLE
    McCoy @CHI
