I’m going back out on that fantasy football limb. I will pick five players I believe will score more points this week than a higher profile player. The scoring will be 6 points for rushing or receiving TD, 4 points for a passing TD, .1 points per yard for rushing or receiving and .05 points per passing yard. I will also do a Super Stretch Pick where I take a real longshot. First, I’ll recap last week.

Last Week
Ben Roethlisberger 32.5 beat Jeff Garcia 24.8 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
Frank Gore 11.1 beat Shaun Alexander 6.5 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
LenDale White 18.6 beat Marion Barber III 16.5 as I predicted.
Joey Galloway 4.6 beat Roy Williams 2.3 as I predicted.
Larry Fitzgerald 9.7 beat Patrick Crayton 1.9 WHICH I GOT WRONG.

Super Stretch
Kevin Walter 15.7 beat Marvin Harrison 1.6 as I predicted.

Regular Picks: 2-3
Super Stretch Picks: 1-0
Overall: 3-3
Breakdown: QB: 0-1, RB: 1-1, WR: 2-1

Season Record
Regular Picks: 18-17
Super Stretch Picks: 5-2
Overall: 23-19
Breakdown: QB: 5-4, RB: 12-5, WR: 6-10

This Week’s Picks
Brian Griese over Peyton Manning
Griese has the luxury of playing against Detroit. They are terrible against the pass. Manning is going on the road against Carolina. Manning is not putting up the gaudy stats of years past.

Brandon Jacobs over Clinton Portis
Portis has been much better than most anticipated this year. He draws a tough matchup against New England though. Jacobs should destroy Miami in “Old” England.

Reggie Bush over Frank Gore
The teams go head-to-head, why not do the same with the RBs. I’ll take Bush over Gore in this Presidential rematch.

Muhsin Muhammad over Donald Driver
Moose will have a big day along with Griese. Driver will struggle with Favre against Denver.

Santonio Holmes over Marques Colston
Holmes should have a field day against Cincinnati. Colston will struggle to get open against Nate Clements.

SUPER STRETCH
Jesse Chapman over Earnest Graham +2
Graham is coming off a monster game against Detroit. Life won’t be that easy this week as Jacksonville is the draw. I’ll spot him 20 yards and still think he gets outplayed by his Florida counterpart.

What did you think of my predictions? Do you have any fantasy upsets in mind? Please leave your comments.

Go Sox!

24 October 2007

The World Series kicks off tonight.  I am so excited.  While football is my favorite sport, and fantasy football is one of my favorite passions, the Red Sox are my team.  Even though I love the Patriots and all of their recent success, the Sox are the one.  If I had to give up either the 2004 World Series title or the 3 Patriot Super Bowl victories, I would be handing back three Lombardi trophies. 

I’ve moved around quite a bit over the years.  I was born in Philadelphia.  When I was 3 or so I moved to Minnesota.  When I was 6 or so I moved to Ohio.  I was in the 2nd grade when I moved to Massachusetts.  I moved to Pennsylvania in the 6th grade.  I stayed in Pennsylvania until I finished up college at Syracuse University.  Then I moved to Minnesota, which is where I’ve been ever since.  While I was in Massachusetts I became a sports fan.  More specifically, a Boston sports fan.  I loved the Red Sox most of all.  I liked the Patriots as well, but it took off more during the Drew Bledsoe years.  I used to love the Celtics, but that faded as their once proud franchise was driven into the ground.  Living in Minnesota, I’ve become a Timberwovles fan, although it’s getting to be brown paper bag time.  I loved KG.  I was a huge McHale fan so it was easy to root for my new home team.  As my interest waned in the NBA it became tougher to cheer for Boston as well at the Wolves.  I am somewhat excited about the direction of the team and their youth movement.  It’s going to take some time, but at least they did something.  Still I refuse to go to a game until either McHale is gone or the team straightens itself out. 

Man, I’ve got off track.  Back to the Red Sox.  I have followed the Red Sox from afar.  Whenever they come play the Twins at the Metrodump I try to make it down to see them, proudly wearing my “B” hat.  In an odd coincidence, the Red Sox were in the World Series the year my Dad was born (1946), the year I was born (1975), and the year my son was born (2004).  Three times is the charm as they won in my son’s birth year.  Only a couple months old, he watched the World Series with me.  Now that he’s three, I’m not sure if he’ll sit down and watch this one.  I sure hope so.

 If I haven’t lost you already, now I’ll tell you what I expect out of the series.  I expect Colorado to be a little rusty early on.  They have been off for a LONG time.  It’s hard to stay sharp during such a lenghty layover.  It couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Rockies either.  They were red hot.  I think Josh Beckett will keep their bats cool tonight.  I expect the Rockies to get things figured out at home.  However, I think Boston wins in 6.  I think Josh Beckett takes home another World Series MVP. 

That’s my take.  What’s yours?  Please feel free to leave a comment.

Fantasy Football Forum
Did you win your matchup this week? What’s your record? I lost my third straight to fall to 4-3. My team is cursed. Ronnie Brown is gone for the year. Cleo Lemon stole a TD and threw a pick on the play where Brown got hurt. I hate him. Shaun Alexander did little. Holgrem cost him a TD. I don’t like him either. Roddy White was awesome. SEA D was incredible. Dallas Clark played well. Santana Moss sucked out loud. He’s so gone. That’s how my weekend of fantasy football went. How did you do?

Tracking My NFL Preseason Predictions
I made a bunch of predictions in the preseason. I profiled guys I thought would do well. I also profiled guys I thought wouldn’t meet expectations. Here are my preseason predictions are going.

Surprises
J.P. Losman – Prediction: 3400 yards, 24 TDs, 16 INTs
On Pace for: Injured
Right-O-Meter: 1
Lost his job.

Alex Smith – Prediction: 3000 yards, 20 TDs, 14 INTs
On Pace for: Injured
Right-O-Meter: 1
Hurt

Chris Brown – Prediction: 1000 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 880 total yards, 3 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 6
Hurt

Jerious Norwood – Prediction: 1200 total yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 948 yards, 3 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 7
39 total yards was a dud.

D.J. Hackett – Prediction: 80 receptions, 1100 yards, 8 TDs
On Pace for: Injured
Did not play because of ankle injury.
Right-O-Meter: 1

Vincent Jackson – Prediction: 64 receptions, 1100 yards, 9 TDs
On Pace for: 940 yards, 5 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 5
Bye

Heath Miller – Prediction: 600 yard, 8 TDs
On Pace for : 776 yards, 11 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 10
50 yards and 2 TDs. Hope some of you have him on your rosters.

Disappointments
Vince Young – Prediction: 2800 passing yards, 650 rushing yards, 16 TDs, 6 rushing TDs, 20 INTs
On Pace for: 1875 yards passing, 344 rushing yards, 8 TDs, 3 rushing TDs, 16 INTs
Right-O-Meter: 10
Hurt

Maurice Jones-Drew- Prediction: 1100 total yards, 8 rushing & receiving TDs
On Pace for: 1389 total yards, 11 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 1
69 total yards and a TD. Clearly not a bust game there.

Torry Holt – Prediction: 1100 yards, 7 TDs
On Pace for: 1065 yards, 7 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 10
82 yards. No TD though.

Tony Gonzalez – Prediction: 700 yards, 5 TDs
On Pace for: 1157 yards, 7 TDs
Right-O-Meter: 1
Only 66 yards. Still, a pretty solid performance.

My picks have been a kiss-of-death with all the injuries.

 | Posted by | Categories: Fantasy Football, NFL | Tagged: Fantasy Football, NFL |

There were some unusual heroes on Sunday.  There always are.  Let’s take a look at them and see if they are worth of your fantasy rosters.

 QBs
Sage Rosenfels – Possibly.  290 yards and 4 TDs were nice.  3 INTs were not so nice.  You can’t use him next week against San Diego, but Week 9 against Oakland is a possibility.  Week 10 is Houston’s bye, but if Sage remains the QB he has a nice stretch of games against New Orleans, Cleveland, and Tennessee.
Ruling:  Wait and see.
Cleo Lemon – He ran for another score (maddening Ronnie Brown owers) and threw for 236.  However, with Miami 0-7  it’s only a matter of time until John Beck gets the call.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em.

RBs
Kenny Watson – 130 yards and 3 TDs.  He had almost as many points (33.7) this week as Rudi (35.7) has all season.  He’s clearly run better than Rudi, and should continue to be involved heavily.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Jesse Chapman – 82 total yards and a score filling in for an injured Ronnie Brown (thanks for that pick Cleo).  While his value depends on the severity of Ronnie’s injury, he’s worth a spot on your roster.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Chris Henry – 69 total yards and a score.  Nice debut, but we’ll have to see if he can repeat.  Just keep an eye on him for now unless you’re in a big league or are really hurting at RB.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em (well, maybe just a little)

WRs
Brandon Stokley – 70 yards and a TD.  With Javon Walker being out for an extended time, Stokley becomes roster worthy for the first time since 2004.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Arnez Battle – 57 yards and a score.  It’s his 2nd straight game reaching paydirt.  If’ your limited by injuries or bye weeks, Battle may not be a bad play vs. New Orleans and Atlanta the next two weeks.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
Ike Hilliard – He has 323 yards (80.75 ypg) the past four games with a TD.  Believe it or not he’s roster worthy.  However, he plays Jacksonville next week so you probably can’t use him.
Ruling:  Get ‘em.
David Anderson – He had 45 yards and a score for Houston.  With Andre Davis and Kevin Walter, not to mention Andre Johnson’s impending return, Anderson has likely made his biggest noise of the season.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em

TE
Will Heller – Scored 2 TDs.  You won’t see that again.
Ruling:  Don’t Sweat ‘em

There you have it.  I hope I provided you some good info while you make your fantasy team waiver wire adjustments. 

Week 7 Fill-ins

20 October 2007

Is the bye week hitting you hard?  How about injuries?  How about just plain bad matchups?  Here are some guys you can plug-in this weekend.

QB
Brian Griese – He’s thrown for 881 yards the past three weeks to go along with 7 TDs.  He has a decent mathcup against Philly.
Jeff Garcia – He’s only thrown for 771 yards the past four weeks, but he has 5 TDs (plus a rushing TD) to only 1 INT.  The biggest thing is his matchup against Detroit.

RB
Kevin Faulk – He hasn’t done much, but he’s not hurt.  The same can’t be said for backmates Maroney and Sammy Morris.
Jerious Norwood – He finally showed some life last week.  He could be used in a pinch.
Reuben Droughns – He’s been vulturing TDs, which is a role reversal for him.  His 90 yards last week was a bonus.
LenDale White – He’s been decent.  With Chris Brown likely out, he stands to get the bulk of the carries.  He’s already the goaline guy.

WR
Donte Stallworth – A couple of solid back-to-back games.  Injuries and inconsistency are always a concern though.
Kevin Walter – Sure, his 12 catches for 160 yards were incredible, but he averaged 5.5 catches for 72 yards the previous two weeks, which isn’t bad.
Ike Hilliard – Averaged 77 yards per game the past three weeks.

TE
Desmond Clark – 212 yards and 2 TDs the past four weeks.  Not terrible.
Greg Olsen – Yardage increased the past three weeks.  Receptions have followed suit.  He’s becoming a bigger part of the Bear offense.

K
Kris Brown – Made 11 FGs the past three weeks.

DEF
NYG – Have gotten sack happy starting with the assault on McNabb.
Washington – Giving up very little points.
Kansas City – Picking up tons of sacks, INTs, and fumbles.  Nice matchup against Oakland.

There you have it.  If you have any other suggestions, please leave a comment.

Javon Walker was considered a game-time decision back in Week 4.  He missed that game, as well as the Week 5 tilt against San Diego.  Denver had their bye in Week 6 and Walker had returned to practice.  He had some problems though, and has decided to have knee surgery today to take care of those problems.  Mike Shanahan said he’ll be out “a few weeks”.  Shanahan is about the last person in the world I like to rely on when it comes to injuries.  Only Bill Belichick is worse, in my opinion.  However, the doctors say he will likely miss the next four weeks.  Pretty much the best case scenario is he’s back in Week 11 when Denver takes on Tennessee.  After that they face Chicago, Oakland, Kansas City, Houston, San Diego, and Minnesotat (although do fantasy owners even care about Week 17).  There are still some decent matchups that makes holding onto Walker make sense.  However, if he has any setbacks along the way, you’re best of to cut ties and get someone on your roster that can help.

Fantasy Football Hint:
This really is a no-brainer, but just take my foolishness as a warning.  If you make multiple trade offers that include a particular players, make sure cancel all trade offers he’s involved in.  I ended up trading away Chad Johnson, Kevin Curtis, LenDale White, Todd Heap, and Dallas DEF for Javon Walker (when I thought he was going to return this week), Donald Driver, and Shaun Alexander.  It may not look like that bad of a deal for me, except for the fact that I have Ronnie Brown and Edge as my RBs (meaning SA is a backup).  I have Dallas Clark  and JAX DEF so I wasn’t losing much at TE or K.  I upgraded at RB, however my WR corps took a hit.  I am already short-handed with Andre Johnson hurting, but I figured if I could deal Ocho and get a great 3rd RB as well as two quality starting WRs, I would be in great shape.  I would have Andre Johnson, Javon Walker, and Donald Driver as my WR.  I thought that was an improvement over Andre & Chad Johnson and Brandon Marshall, Kevin Curtis, or Santana Moss.  When I found out Walker was having surgery I cancelled a trade offer.  However, later I found out that there was an offer I didn’t cancel. 

 Wow, I wrote more about my little problem than about Javon Walker.  You can read about Walker many places, but only here can you see me expose my stupidity.  I’m sure some of you can relate.  The rest can laugh at my misfortune.

Friday Tidbits 10/19/07

19 October 2007

Colorado stayed on fire (21 of 22) to sweep Arizona and advance to the World Series. Cleveland had Boston on the ropes, but Josh Beckett fired a gem sending the series back to Boston. Curt Schilling and Fausto Carmona square off in Game 6. Joe Torre walked away from the Yankees. I wish he walked a week ago before he got that insulting offer, but he did the right thing. He is such a class act on on off the field. Yankee fans have to have a bitter taste in their mouth after what went down. As a baseball fan I want to say “Thanks Joe” for doing it the right way. Dusty Baker will be manager for the Reds next year.

Tom Brady threw 5 more TDs. He’s thrown the most after 6 games in NFL history. It’s also the first time anyone threw at least 3 TDs in six games to start the season. Tony Gonzalez broke the all-time TD mark for Tight Ends. LT scored 4 TDs vs. Oakland. Kyle Boller started for Steve McNair. Jamal Lewis shut it down because of a sore foot. Vinny Testaverde started for Carolina…and he won. Adrian Peterson had 224 electrifying yards and three long scores. New Orleans finally won a game. The same can’t be said for St. Louis or Miami. Brett Favre broke another record. After becoming the winningest QB, and the TD leader, he came back to Earth as the INT leader. Kansas City traded Michael Bennett to Tampa Bay. It must have been trade Wisconsin Badger day as Chris Chambers was dealt to San Diego for a 2nd round pick. The Patriots got Randy Moss for a 4th round pick, but hey good deal San Diego. Some Great news to report. Kevin Everett was able to take some steps with a walker. Tim Hasselbeck joined Arizona as they can’t keep their QBs healthy. Javon Walker is going under the knife. His knee surgery is expected to keep him out a month. Good thing I didn’t cancel both trade offers I made for him. I got SA, Driver, and Walker for Ocho, Kevin Curtis, LenDale, Heap, and Dallas D. If I can stay afloat until Walker comes back I may be OK. I might have flushed my chances down the toilet.

Philadelpha F Jesse Boulerice was suspended 25 games for cross-checking Ryan Kesler. Boston’s Phil Kessel scored his first career hat trick on Friday. Colorado’s Joe Sakic netted his 15th career hat trick on Saturday. Josh Harding filled in with a shutout for Minnesota as they improved to 5-0. Ottawa signed F Randy Robitaille to a one-year deal. Buffalo signed F Jochen Hecht to a four-year deal worth $14 million. Philly’s Martin Biron had back-to-back shutouts against Atlanta and New Jersey. Ottawa is the NHL points leader. Minnesota is the only team without a regulation or OT loss.

Former NBAer Keon Clark was arrested for drug and weapons charges. Sacramento C Justin Williams was given a leave while he’s investigated for sexual assualt. Jason Kidd is being investigated for groping a woman at a club. The legal system will decide if the case has merit, but I want to say something to Kidd. You’re 34. Stay out of the club.

#1 LSU got bumped by #17 Kentucky. Joining them was #2 Cal, who was dropped by Oregon State. Also upset was #15 Cincinnati by Louisville, #18 Iowa by Illinios, and #19 Wisconsin by Penn State. #6 Oklahoma took care of #11 Missouri. #2 South Florida got dropped by Rutgers in the Thursday game. Some nice matchups this weekend. USC vs. Notre Dame. Hehe, just kidding. LSU-Auburn, Ohio St.-Mich St., Kentucky-Florida, Cal-UCLA, Mizzou-Texas Tech, and Tenn-Bama should be good.

Gonzaga’s Josh Heytvelt missed practice with a sore foot. Indiana coach Kelvin Sampson got in trouble for calling recruits. He is losing a scholarship and a $500K raise. Notre Dame F Luke Harangody will miss time with torn ligament in his thumb. Wisconsin G Michael Flowers is taking a leave for medical reasons. Arkansas G Nate Rakestraw will miss time with broken pinkie. Missouri suspended Darryl Butterfield following an assault arrest. Stanford C Brook Lopez was suspended for academic violations.

That concludes the Tidbits. As always, feel free to add any stories you liked this week in sports or discuss any of the stories I mentioned.

I’m going back out on that fantasy football limb. I will pick five players I believe will score more points this week than a higher profile player. The scoring will be 6 points for rushing or receiving TD, 4 points for a passing TD, .1 points per yard for rushing or receiving and .05 points per passing yard. I will also do a Super Stretch Pick where I take a real longshot. First, I’ll recap last week.

Last Week
Drew Brees 20.3 beat Matt Schaub 13.55 as I predicted
LaDainian Tomlinson 45.5 beat Maurice Jones Drew (30.4) & Shaun Alexander (3.5) 33.9 as I predicted
Jason Wright 15.8 beat DeShaun Foster 4.9 as I predicted
MeO 14.6 (12.6 actual +2 spotted points) beat Randy Moss 11.9 WHICH I GOT WRONG.
Dwayne Bowe 4.6 beat Torry Holt 3.3 as I predicted

Super Stretch
Tony Romo 17.85 beat Kurt Warner 1.05 WHICH I GOT WRONG.

Regular Picks: 4-1
Super Stretch Picks: 0-1
Overall: 4-2
Breakdown: QB: 1-1, RB: 2-0, WR: 1-1

Season Record
Regular Picks: 16-14
Super Stretch Picks: 4-2
Overall: 20-16
Breakdown: QB: 5-3, RB: 11-4, WR: 4-9

This Week’s Picks

Jeff Garcia over Ben Roethlisberger
Jeff gets to square off against Detroit. They suck against the pass. Big Ben may have Hines Ward back, but going up against Denver won’t be easy.

Shaun Alexander over Frank Gore
Last week I knocked SA down by, this week I’m picking him up. He’s been struggling the past couple of week’s.  St. Louis is just what he needs to get back on track. Gore gets to face a suddenly potent Giants defense.

LenDale White over Marion Barber III
LenDale probably won’t have to split carries with Chris Brown. I think he has a decent game against Houston. MB3 has to share with Julius Jones, play second fiddle to the passing attack, and oh yeah, face a tough Minnesota run defense.

Joey Galloway over Roy Williams
Garcia has to pass to somebody while burning the Lions. Roy will be locked up with Ronde Barber.

Patrick Crayton over Larry Fitzgerald
MeO and Witten will draw the attention. Crayton will reap the rewards. Fitz will have Rattay or a busted up Kurt Warner throwing to him. Can you say long day?
SUPER STRETCH
Kevin Walter
over Marvin Harrison
Walter is coming off a huge game. Houston is still short receivers, which means they’ll call his name often. Marvin is still a little banged up and facing Jacksonville.

What did you think of my predictions? Do you have any fantasy upsets in mind? Please leave your comments.

Fantasy Football Forum
Did you win your matchup this week? What’s your record? My team is struggling big time. Brett Favre sucked. Ronnie Brown was solid, but his stupid QB vultured two TDs. Edge was solid. Kevin Curtis was great. Ocho was decent. It’s bad enough that sucky Santana Moss didn’t catch a pass, but the moron fumbles and actually gets negative points. Soft Todd Heap didn’t score a point. CHI DEF also got me negative points. Between Favre, Moss, Heap, and CHI DEF I got 2.32 points. That’s awful.

That’s how my weekend of fantasy football went. How did you do?
