I like your Blog, It's full of useful info, I typically look at Fantasy Sharks and many of the others you list, but I also like Fantasy Cafe......just to get a grasp of what regular folks feel on start/sit issues and injuries, some of these people are actually in those NFL cities and have a inside track to whats going on before Rotoworld does.....keep up the good work!!!

Quick question.. I just made a trade and I gave Portis and Rodgers for Steven jackson, Santana Moss, and Maurice Jones Drew... Did i win or lose this one??

Bobbert said...

Depends on your roster tbh. I really don't like SJ in any case...

I wouldn't have made the trade unless i was REALLY hurting at wr

wow, sit owens and moss ... you think anyone would've predicted that CONSENSUS sit at the beginning of the year...?

Potlicker, I was going to say the exact same thing! What's terrible for me is that I have to start 3 WR, and I have both Owens and Moss!

who do you guys like in place of Owens, whom I will be sitting tomarrow, Breaston or Curtis??? Help!!!

Thanks for the reminder about Fantasy Cafe, anon. I haven't remembered to check them out very often this year so thanks for the reminder.

Other anon - I really like Portis so I'm probably a little biased on this but I think we'd really need to know the rest of your team before knowing if this was a good or bad deal for you, like bobbert said.

Third anon - I think I actually still like Owens the best here but followed closely by Breaston. So if you're done with trying to get points out of Owens (like squeezing water from a rock these days), then take a try on Breaston this week. Then again the Seattle secondary certainly does make me think Curtis could be a decent start...

couple things i've learned about FF dosen't always hold true, but most of the time... 1. always play the big name.
i get cautious when thinking about sitting an owens or moss... you just hate to have those guys on your bench because you just NEVER know!
2. bad DEF are great for you RB and bad for your WR. great def are bad for you RB and good for your WR
if it's a bad def you just run the ball all day if it's a good one you have to open u the passing game. now if the team just sucks they don't score on a good D but that would be an interesting stat compilation FFL... when did RB's and WR's have their most points against which types of D. see if my theory holds true!
