Which awful QB do I start?

6 posts in this topic

OK...In a 14 player deep league with 1 keeper...I've got some horrible QB's. There is absolutely nobody on wavers to pick up and I'm searching for trades. But in the mean time...What would you do at QB if this was you? Other than hit your head against the wall?

D. Anderson verse Giants on MNF. - Will this be the game D. Anderson and B. Edwards get back on track? I've been waiting for weeks for him to show up.

or

Jon Kitna verse Vikes - How short of a leash is he going to be on if they don't perform well?

Both are on very short leashes this week if they don't perform I feel...but which one do you think I'll get the better performance out of?

Keep an eye on Kitna's starting status, he might not be in the game. And to be honest there has to be someone better than them two available. Can you pick up unsigned free agents? If not and Kitna is starting I'd start him. everyone has a good game against the vikes. Anderson and the browns are a joke this year.

I would start kitna my guess is that the lions are going to come out firing like they did last year against the vikes

You options couldn't be any worse then mine. I had to pick up a QB to cover a bye week this week and I'm starting.....Kyle Orton. Who would have ever thought he would be worth starting.

Fantasy football rule #1 never start any chicago bear QB, the law is as basic as gravity and yet he is my starting QB.

Its a toss up really in your situation. If I were you I would hope Kitna is hurt that way you don't have to stress over the decision. If Kitna plays though I would lean his way, I'm sure they will throw alot. Fantasy football does have the element of luck sometimes and this time you might just need to get lucky.

I would play John Kitna. The Lions will not be able to run against our D, but the pass coverage is still questionable (IMO).

Kitna will be throwing 70% of the time for 1) they can't run the ball 2) they will be playing catch-up all game

    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
