Heading into Week 10 with the first TNF game!

Well I've got a good thing going in the Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Blogger League - I'm sitting at 8-1, 2 games ahead of the next best team. Sweet! I'm getting to the point where I'm doing so well in the league that I'll be sorely disappointed if I don't win the big grand prize Super Bowl trip to Miami. I know, I know, it's bad to set myself up for this but I can't help it! I want to win!

Anyway, I recommend you scope out the BWW league site - lots of experts (like RotoExperts, Fantasy Guru, The Sports Outlaw and others) are posting throughout the week with great advice or even just links back to the start/sit and waiver wire advice on their own sites. Good stuff. Speaking of good stuff, let's get to today's articles:

Don't forget that there is a Thursday Night Football game this week - be sure to have your lineups set for that Bears vs 49ers game (or your whole roster depending on your league's set up). I'm fairly grumpy that I can't get the NFL Network at home so I'm planning on watching it online via NFL.com unless any of you brilliant readers have a better suggestion. And I realize I can watch at a sports bar but really I'd like a home-based solution since this whole lack of a job thing has put a dent in the ol' sports bar budget.

Finally, happy Veterans Day and a big thanks to those in the military for their service!

Yes, Happy Veteran's Day to all the vets out there.

I'm in the same boat. NFL.com will be my friend on Thursday.

If anyone needs some help setting their lineups, LestersLegends has some suggestions.

Sara I need some help...

I have
Steven Jackson
Tim Hightower
Laurence Maroney
Michael Crabtree
Devin Hester
Desean Jackson
Percy Harvin

I need 2 RB and 2 Wr and 1 flex (rb/wr).

What do you think?

comcast.....If you have them. Last year I had the same thing with the Thursday game. I called and ordered the nfl channel. Then called and canceled the next day. Cost about 5 bucks for 1 day service....

the fantasy sharks have the absolute worst analysis that i can remember reading. Benching Mendenhall this week? huh? garbage. Also, just watch McNabb role this weekend against an over-rated Charger secondary.

Sara, just checked out your BWW team, nice! you need an avatar or something! 8-1 you gotta give your team a makeover:)keep the goods comin'!

oh almost forgot... jackson is a must start everyweek, saints are secretly bad at stopping the run. hightower is still getting solid touches and the seahawks, well they aren't the best anymore. not sure how you feel about crabtree or how i feel so i'm going with jackson (stud) and harvin (will be more open this ewek than ever!) flex play is a little sneaky, i say maroney... everyone knows about moss and welker... look for maroney to get hot early in the colts game. IMHO!

John,

I say the odd men out are:

Michael Crabtree
Devin Hester

Though it makes tonight's game less interesting for you.

You're dominating that league thanks to Mr. Aaron Rodgers, fantasy football's top QB!

I don't think anyone (aside of Fantasy Depth Chart) projected him as the top QB! http://www.fantasydc.com/?p=1425

John - I agree with the other comments here on starting all 3 RBs but I think I'd go with Hester and Harvin. Hester has had 80+ yards in his last 4 games and think he could have a decent outing tonight. Jackson meanwhile will be facing a secondary that could actually be fairly challenging. Wouldn't be surprised if he ended the night with just 50 yards or so. That said, if you can't really stand the thought of benching Jackson, then I'd play Hester and Jackson. Good luck!

Anon - sadly Comcast is not an option here and the only cable provider does not have an agreement with the NFL Network.

And yup, you guys are right, Rodgers is helping my BWW team out big time! Here's to continued success!
