In need of a Week 3 review

Our road trip to South Carolina can officially be considered a success. Friends were seen, wedding merriment was had, and our son toddled over every inch of the hotel lobby and then some...but not a whole lot of football was watched since we were on the road during basically all of yesterday's games. So I'm in need of some game recaps, and if you are, too, you've come to the right place. I've got several waiver wire articles for you also, so let's have at it.

Torrey Smith will be a huge pickup. Wonder how much buyers remorse thomas jones bidders have.

Would you do this trade?
Give: Sam Bradford and Arian Foster
Get: Michael Vick and Brandon Jacobs

Obviously, the news about Vick's hand not being broken certainly makes this a little better. I'm looking for a boost in the QB 2 slot since my league starts 2 QBs. My QB 1 is Drew Brees but my QB 2 is Freeman who looks more like a QB 3 to me, and Bradford just doesnt seem to have the tools to put up convincing numbers. Not to mention that Arian Foster is becoming a huge liability with that hamstring because even if he gets healthy enough to play, he'll probably platoon with Ben Tate. I'm already good on RBs with MJD, Best, and Sproles, so I can live without Jacobs, but I'm really after Vick since I feel the combo of Brees/Vick will be an unstoppable QB tandem.

Current RBs: MJD, Deangelo Williams, Felix Jones, Green-Ellis, Marshwan Lynch

Right now, Williams and Green-Ellis aren't doing so good and Lynch has been in Least Mode. Would you dump one (which one?) to get Benard Scott?

Glenn, absolutely make that trade.
Anonymous, trade Williams for Scott...neither of them are worth much but Scott has a lot more upside.
Glenn said…
Thanks. What about this trade in a different league?

Give: Cam Newton, Dexter McCluster, and LeGarrette Blount
Get: Philip Rivers, Frank Gore, and either DeSean Jackson or Jordy Nelson. (All of which minus Nelson were put on the trading block)

I desperately need a WR since I lost Kenny Britt and have to start McCluster as a WR alongside Wes Welker and Dwayne Bowe. I'm gonna try to pick up Denarius Moore for Britt when he clears waivers, but I need a solid 3rd WR in either Jackson or Nelson. I'd also like to get rid of a liability in Blount who probably wont see any action in my lineup when I have MJD, Fred Jackson, and Tim Hightower all outperforming him. Frank Gore probably won't be started as much either, but I'm not impressed with Blount. I can live with dropping Gore and doing a 3 for 2 deal also.

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

Rankings, flow charts, and beyond

Greetings from a remarkably cool morning in Tennessee. I've turned my local Starbucks into my office (I telecommute) most mornings and it's so splendidly breezy and cool out here that I'm actually happily outside on their patio cranking out some fantasy links for you this morning. Enjoy!
