We are now at Week 10 and every fake football game seems to gain more significance. My teams this season range from horrible to undefeated, and I hope to make a push here at the end, but I’m not a fan of these trade deadlines running around these parts. I can understand some of the early deadlines in keeper/dynasty leagues, but in redraft, teams that are far behind, at least in leagues not populated by douche bags, have nothing to gain by trading away their star players for a bag of beets. As you can see, I missed out on some trade deadlines. Yes, I’m bitter. But, we’ll see how it goes.
I am doing ok in our Razzball Commenter Leagues, but Matt Pagnotta of the aptly named Team Pagnotta has the lead right now, congrats! Check out the updated RCL rankings.
Thankfully we don’t have to deal with byes after this week and I won’t have to rank Eli Manning first! It truly pained me in my loins to do such a thing. I’ve updated the Week 10 Rankings if you want to take a lookie lou, or anyone, you don’t have to be named lou.
With my many redraft/dynasty teams I always seem to get more enjoyment/pain from my weekly leagues. I guess I’m just of the Sesame Street/Twitter Generation and want instant, but slowly spelled results. I love being able to pick players each week who I think will do well. That’s why FanDuel and our weekly contest is so much fun. So get in on the fun!
Here are a few player updates before you pop open that beer —
Sidney Rice: He wasn’t taken off the PUP list so it won’t become an adult dog until next week. This is probably ok news since playing him this week would have been pretty risky if he did go.
Ryan Torain: He is listed as questionable, but will get the start. Clinton Portis is also listed as questionable, but will most likely be the third down guy/injured guy if he does play.
Blair White: He didn’t practice Wednesday or Thursday and is questionable. He was looking like a decent fill in until this, but I would be wary of starting him even if he goes. If he doesn’t, this would help Tamme get even more looks.
Percy Harvin: He had migraine issues this week, but should be able to go. He’s too good to sit.
Beanie Wells: He was limited in practice and could get a similar workload to last week, which wasn’t a crap load, well, actually it was depending on your definition of crap load.
