Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

Any word on Pierre Thomas? He's been great for the Saints thus far but they didn't seem to use him as much yesterday. Is he hurt?

Also any word on Turner? If he misses time, I'm done. I'm #2 in my league and looking at a first round bye right now but I can't win without Turner. I saw he walked off the field on his own so hopefully that's a good sign.

I made a trade Matt Schaub for Matt Forte straight up. That gives me Rivers at QB and Turner, Thomas and Forte as my RB's and flex... I'll have Jamaal Charles on my bench who had a big game yesterday. My WR's are Desean Jackson, Steve Smith (NYG) and Braylon Edwards so I'm going to try to flip one of those RB's for a WR to replace Braylon. I can win this league and the $1000 that goes with it if I can make the right trades and if Turner isn't hurt too bad.

He is all talk and no game.
Even elite receivers can have bad games. It's easier to prevent them from getting the ball than a RB.

Now I need 9.8 points from Flacco tonight to win.

You guys think Flacco is good for that?.
Nothing's for certain, but I like his chances against Cleveland

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about Ochocinco.

I'm not worrying about Colston with his 1 for 45 2 weeks ago and his 2 for 17 this past weekend.

Or should I......

Did anyone who has MJD in their Yahoo! league notice they gave his fumble on the 1 to Garrard instead?

It doesn't look good for Turner, I wouldn't be surprised if he is out for the year.

Looks like L.J. is heading to Cincy, which is bad news for Benson owners such as myself. Now I'm going to have to rely on L.T. again and I'm sure he'll stink up the joint after yesterday's scoring outburst on my bench.

Crud, I was gone all weekend and didn't even know Turner was out. Worst part is, who's the backup, Snelling or Norwood? Argh. The worst part is that I have Turner and Pierre Thomas, which means I'm wasting multiple bench slots on their backups. And I didn't start Reggie Bush yesterday... ugh.

LT isn't a good fantasy option on a week to week basis anyway. He's lost a lot of agility over the past 2 years and the OL isn't very good. Surprised LJ is going to Cincy, thought he would have at least considered ATL.

Reggie Wayne came through big for me in one league, now I just need Ray Rice to get me 10 in another.

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

So should I drop Westbrook? He's essentially done, right?

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

Sorry boys my 1st round pick essentially became Brandon Marshall. Also as far as LJ the consensus amongst the talking heads is that LJ will be 4th on the depth chart and more of an insurance policy if Benson gets hurt

THANK YOU Ravens defense! Or maybe ... Thank you Cleveland!

Then again... Glad I didn't give in to the temptation to start him ahead of McNabb.

So I beat my brother by less than 2 points, and that was after the adjustment Yahoo! gave me 2 points back after MJD not getting the fumble

Re: Fantasy Football Talk 2009 ptII

Anybody worried about Chris Johnson vs Texans on MNF for week 11?


He burned the Texans for 2 receiving and one rushing TD in week 2 but the Texans have had 2 weeks to prepare for the rematch and their run defense has improved significantly since Oct

I bet the coaches looked at the film and will make adjustments for a divisional game.


I have a bad feeling about Deangelo Williams this Thurs vs Dolphins since the Dolphins are good against the run and the Panthers lost their LT Jordan Gross for the season and Dolphins are 3-0 vs the Panthers all-time.

^I wouldn't worry about Chris Johnson against anybody. He is that Titans offense and if he's not getting 100 yards on the ground he's getting 100 yards through the air. What a beast he turned out to be considering he was a mid to late first rounder in most leagues.

He went all the way to the end of our second round. So some lucky bastard ended up with AP and CJ.

You can always bench Johnson if you're worried
