NFL Fantasy Weekly Sit/Start

Allright, most people seem to like these, and for those of you who say "manage your own team" I have my opinion about what to do, thank you very much (see below). For those who are here for the fun of it, throw your takes out.

Here goes:

I've got 5 backs, I can only play 3.

LenDale White

Pierre Thomas

Ray Rice

Steve Slaton

MoJo Drew

Slaton and Drew are the obvious choices, White has a tough matchup, and Thomas is questionable for Sunday. I think my third is Rice, unless I hear better news about Thomas before Sunday. Any other takes?

Wow, we almost have the same RB's. I have Slaton, Pierre, and Rice on my FFB team too! (nothing to be proud of, Russ) I picked up Pierre as a risk/reward player for the oft injured Bush. Ironically Pierre is the one questionable for the first week. Ha!

I wouldn't put much faith in Pierre just yet. I'd go Rice.

I've got MJD on my team but I'm a little worried about his "leg bruise". They aren't saying much.

I'm starting Rice over White this weekend, KC has no run defense and White plays Pit so tough call! I start 2 RB and 3 WR in that league though, and im loaded at RB with Ronnie Brown(other starter), White, Rice, Donald Brown, Felix Jones and Derrick Ward.

Cadillac was named starter in TB the other day. FYI.

Donald Brown is still waiting in the wings of Addai but in a couple of weeks he could be in a similar situation as Pierre in NO, especially if Addai stinks it up like he did last year. They really like Brown.

Jeepers creepers Cadillac starter lol wow....I can always cut Ward later on...I got a feeling quite a few RBs will go down this year so I like to be loaded or possibly trade. Trying to trade Ward for Colston as we speak..

I can only play two backs in my league. I have jones-drew, which I am starting for sure. But for my backup I have Kevin Smith (Det.)and Julius Jones from Seattle. Which one should I start.

Who do I start in my 3rd RB/WR slot?

The options are:

Donnie Avery

Percy Harvin

Jamal Lewis

Julius Jones

Harvin, think Avery still out, Lewis going against Vikes D, and don't think Jones will do much.

Hoping Favre gets Harvin involved and show off his skills

Yep, I think Harvin has a shot at some big plays. Who should I start here. I can run 3 running backs and one wide out or vice versa.

Backs:

Tomlinson

Slaton

Barber

Addai

Wideouts:

V. Jackson

Desean Jackson

Lance Moore

Roy Williams

I'm leaning towards Barber, Tomlinson, Slaton and Moore. Any thoughts?

I am feeling good about my

  • Jay Cutler
  • LaDainian Tomlinson
  • Reggie Bush
  • Edgerrin James "Flex"
  • Randy Moss
  • Hines Ward
  • Kevin Boss

Was able to get the Vikings D and 13th round Ryan Longwell was still on the table, so I scooped him up. I went a little over board with RB's this year for my bench, but some good talent was sitting their. grin

    • Apparently it took one to know one
    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging.

    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
