Pick 3

9 posts in this topic

Pick 3 for this week, I don't have access to all of their opponents, all sports websites are blocked at work so I can't look up the ones I don't know.

TJ Houshmanzadah

Hines Ward vs. Bal

Marques Colston

Antonio Bryant

Steve Breaston vs. Min

I think I'd stay away from Heinz against the Baltimore defense. Breaston could be good considering more focus on boldin and fitzgerald.

I'd start Bryant and TJ then.

I should asterisk by saying I am in second to last in my FF team though

I would start breaston and bryant. MIN passing is horrible, and bryant has been on fire as of late.

I'm a little late. Hopefully you started Colston! Throwing him out. I'd play them in this order.

Standard scoring

Bryant - Looking good, divisional game

Housh - Gets lots of looks.

Breaston - Will get yards and catch, probably no TD though

Ward - big no on Ravens D. He'll be a marked man.

I did start Colston. He has been hit an miss but I thought he was due. Scored me 16 points.

My league counts 1 pt per reception as well as 6 for a td and 1 pt for every 20 yds.

Right now I have Colston how already played and I have Breaston and Houshmanzadah. TJ has gotten a ton of catches but not many TD, same with Breaston.

Bryant is an attractive option but he's very hit an miss and he doesn't have many TD's this season.

I will reasses the situation tomorrow once all the final injury reports come out. I also want to take a look at the weather conditions to see if anyone is playing in a snow storm this week.

Right now all I know is Ward is sitting this week out for me.

My decision making wasn't so good this week. Actually it was my worst week of the season in terms of selecting the wrong guys to play. I hand Antonio Bryant (19pts) on the bench sitting next to Hines Ward (13pts). Instead i played Houshmanzadah (3pts) and Breaston (6pts). Thats a 23 point swing. And that doesn't include the fact that I bench Big Ben in place of Matt Ryan, another 9 point swing. So thats 32 points I left on the field.

Good news is that I believe I won anyways. I was up by 8 going into tonights game with my opponent having Westbrook yet to play. Looks like Westbrook did me a favor and took it easy tonight and only scored 5 points.

It was an ugly win but I'll take it any way I can get it. I'm in the Championship game next week and the #1 seed lost this weekend so its me (#2) versus the #4 seed for all the marbles.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
