Silly people thinking Vincent Jackson would explode after being gone for almost a season. Left without a catch :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


He was my only option after Nicks went down. Stupid.

I am not totally out of it - I'm down by 28 going into tonight with Gore and Fitzgerald. It's winnable, I think.

Put up a pretty solid week, and look to be headed into the playoffs as our league's number one team after knocking off the other 9-2 team this week.

I've got a motley crew of talent and have essentially survived off of the waiver wire.

QB - Aaron Rodgers (OPP - Philip Rivers)
WR - Reggie Wayne, Jabar Gaffney, Deion Branch (OPP - Santonio Holmes, Danny Woodhead, Steve Breaston)
RB - LeSean McCoy, Donald Brown (OPP - Chris Johnson, Knowshon Moreno)
TE - Aaron Hernandez (OPP - Antonio Gates)
K - Garrett Hartley (OPP - Mason Crosby)
DEF - Cleveland (OPP - Tennessee)

Bench
RB - Justin Forsett
WR - Mike Thomas, Lance Moore
DEF - Oakland

I've left a couple of open spots on the roster for waiver/free agent pickups, and they've been filled this season with matchup players. Cleveland was a product of "sign whoever plays Carolina", and ended up not working as planned as the game was actually close. Either way, I'll gladly take a 50 pt win over the other top team in our league.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

he was injured. its not like he was shut down all game. not to mention rivers sucked in general, no SD receiver had a good game.

that being said, hes on my bench until further notice. Forte is getting the start this week, 2 straight weeks of double digit games and playing Detroit.

Fantasy wise, sure. Real world, he was more than fine.

No sense slinging it around to a gimped receiving corps when his defense & running game were kicking Indy's ass.

A double douching by injuries this week. Fantastic.

I'd be pissed about Gore's injury likely screwing me out of the playoffs but if he's out for the season I wouldn't win anyway.

I picked up Westbrook and Gerhart since Gore is out for the season and AP looks to be out this week. Hope he's not done for the season as well as that will be a huge loss for my team (pretty much locked into 4th place for the 6-team playoff).

Sucks for my opponent this week that had Gore. He would've beat me had he not got injured. And to make matters worse, I picked up Westbrook before he did! He ended up picking up Brandon Jackson, lol!

I lost when Gore went down and now my season may be over. I'm in second place but I lost Gore and Nicks in the past 2 weeks. I put in a waiver claim for Westbrook for $50 which is 1/4 of our season budget but I need him to stay competitive.

I clinched a playoff birth with a win this week in my main league. I was able to pick up Westbrook, so hopefully Gore being out doesn't hurt me too much. Next week I guess Forte is going to be my RB2 instead of Gore. So I have to choose a flex between Westbrook, Jackson (SD) and Branch (NE). Not sure who I should roll with...

In my minor league I also squeaked out a win and my brother lost. So that means the winner of my game next week will get the last spot in the playoffs, we are both 6-6. I put in a waiver claim for Westbrook in that league as well, so it'd be a big boost if I can get him since RBs are one of my weakest spots in that league.

Check what SF's matchup is next week. If it's run friendly (like Arizona or Carolina), Westbrook is a good play.

San Fran is AT Green Bay.

So, in short, that is not overly run friendly at all. Coming off of a loss, needing to stay competitive in the NFC North, at home, the Pack will be fired up. Starting Westbrook would make sense if you need to, but if you can avoid it, I would.

Also - I saw this morning that Vincent Jackson is likely out. So your best bet by default might be Deion Branch.

Yup, Jackson is out 2 weeks it looks like. Plus Westbrook might be splitting carries with Dixon... Branch might get in there by default. I'll have to check the waiver wire, but there's probably not anyone out there that's any better.

Edit, Ricky Williams was on the waivers, so I picked him up. So it will be between Williams and Branch for my flex spot.

Dolphins play my Browns in Miami. I have a feeling there will be a lot more passing by the Dolphins because the Browns defensive front is pretty decent (although they do give up big plays because of missed tackles), but the secondary is ATROCIOUS.

Ok I have a ton of options this week, so I figured I would ask for some help.

I can play 2 WR, 2 RB and 1 WR/RB. My options are:

WR:
Roddy White (@TB)
Miles Austin (@Ind)
Steve Johnson (@Min)
Michael Crabtree (@GB)

RB:
Rashard Mendenhall (@Bal)
Ray Rice (vs. Pit)
Reggie Bush (@Cin)
Knowshon Moreno (@KC)
Joseph Addai (vs. Dal, but unlikely to play)

Too many good choices! Pretty much set on benching Crabtree and Addai, but the rest are up in the air. Any thoughts?

I'd go Austin and Johnson for WR 1, 2 and Mendenhall, Rice, and Moreno as RB 1,2,Flex.

Got the newsletter for my money league this morning. I already have a playoff spot clinched. If I win, I get a first round bye so only need to win to get to the money round (if I didn't have the bye, I'd need to win twice). If I lose, I'm not so sure. If "Tap That Pass" loses as well, I hold the tie breaker over him, but for the other two teams in the equation, it gets messy. "Former WHAGers" if he gets a win (I play him this week), we'd be 1-1 against each other and not sure what the tiebreakers are off hand. If "Your Mother" gets a win, I don't clinch the division as he beat myself and Tap That Pass. (Doesn't mean I can't get a bye as top wildcard, but I don't feel like trying to figure that out).

Gonna have to make some moves before next week though. Dropped Ricky Williams for Brian Westbrook (not like I'll ever start him, but prevents others from getting him), and I may make a change at WR. Also going to swap kickers and maybe defenses if there's a better one there since Nick Folk and New England have been mediocre at best.

I am debating though. Should I drop Cedric Benson? I can only start 2 RBs and almost always start Turner and Foster. I would like to keep a 3rd, and looking at schedules quickly, Westbrook may be the better 3rd back instead of Benson.

From here on out, I think Vick is a must start over anyone. He's the only one that isn't throwing INTs (yes, he threw one against the Bears) and the best shot of running one in (which means you won't have to share. Rivers, while playing like a beast, doesn't give you those rushing yards and TDs. Peyton is just playing like shit right now. What was it, 7 interceptions in the last 3 games?
2. TO, Bess (until Marshall comes back, or Henne is out again), and DeSean (though his contract antics have me concerned).
3. Jones
4. Washington. Though there's got to be better on the wire. Ford, Obomau (sp?), Armstrong, Avant, anybody that doesn't have Rusty Davis throwing to them.
5. Heath Miller. With Hill done for the season, I suspect Scheffler is too.

Who should I start?

Mike Goodson vs Seahawks
or
Brian Westbrook vs Packers


That's tough, but I think Goodson is the must start right now - until Westbrook shows something against the Pack and Dixon won't steal the show.

Not to mention Westbrook hasn't practiced all week. Even if he does play there's a good chance that he'll be splitting carries with Dixon this week.

It might be a long shot but see if Pierre Thomas is on waivers, he may finally be back this week.

So I have a problem. Have to work most of sunday so can't actually check my team when I'll need to since I have some questionable guys this week.

WR (start two) - Reggie Wayne, Percy Harvin, or Johnny Knox? (leaning Wayne and Knox)
TE - Gates or Pettigrew?

I'd go Wayne and Knox at WR, although Wayne is a bit scary because he didn't practice on Friday and is listed as questionable. I think he'll play, though. Harvin has been missing practices all week with migraines. He might still play, too, but there's much more upside with Wayne right now.

If you're not going to be around to make last-minute lineup changes, I'd go with the safer option at TE, Pettigrew. It sounds like Gates is going to be a game-time decision.

Thanks. That's kind of what I thought on the TE situation as well. Able to keep an eye on it until about 8, but that's not nearly enough. And even if Harvin does play, he's been a bust ever since Rice came back.
