    Everyone pretty confident this week?

    15yd/pt, no ppr, need to pick 1:

    Devin Hester @ SEA
    Chris Henry vs PIT
  3. Harvs01

    Harvs01 Pro Bowler

    WR I'd say Hester as much as I hate Cutler

    WDIS week 3 1 pt every 10 yards 3 pt bonus at 100 yds, 3 pt bonus at 7 recept
    Steve Slaton vs Jax or Ray Rice vs Cle or Vincent Jackson vs Miami...2 of the 3...1 as a RB2 and 1 as Flex

    WR -

    Carson Palmer has a history of sucking big time against Pitt. I would start Hester as he does add a possible ST score. I know Troy is out and that could help Palmer, but Seattle's D is decimated in the secondary.

    Harvs -

    Rice and Vjax, I have been down on slaton for the reason that he lost short yardage and red zone duties. He really seems to only be a score threat as a big play guy. He could very well do that, but in a league that offers a bonus for receptions, I would go with Rice and Vjax with confidence.

    I'd go with Devin Hester. Hester is always a threat to score a long TD and as mike already said, there are some major holes in the Seahawks secondary. However, Chris Henry had a couple real nice games in 2006 (9 catches for 193 and 3 TDs) against the Steelers. Since then, the Bengals offense has been awful and I think Henry hasn't had over 50 yards receiving. With Houshmanzadeh gone, maybe Henry plays a little more of a role? But I think he's injured too...

    Devin Hester.

    I definitely like Vincent Jackson against the Dolphins...no brainer.

    I actually like Steve Slaton a little more over Ray Rice. The Jags run defense isn't great and Slaton could catch a few balls in this game. Not sure he'll hit 7 on the game, but he should catch a few. Slaton should get 100 yards, but you never know now with Chester Pitts out. Slaton is still a number one guy and solid back. Rice didn't start the second half of the Chargers game and played the role of "change-of-pace" back. I don't like that at all. So far this season, Rice and McGahee have almost split all the carries. It looks like whomever the hot back is for the Ravens is the back that will start and get the bulk of the carries in the second half of their games. But then again, the Ravens are playing the Browns, so there's a chance both of them could have nice production...lol.

    slaton is not the redzone or short yardage back. His production has suffered mightily because of that. Rice caught five balls last week and is the team's receiving back. Slaton has 51 yards rushing and is averaging under 2 yards a carry. Rice had almost as many catches last week (5) as slaton has in 2 weeks (6). I can understand ward's backing of slaton based on last year, but this year is a whole different ball game.
  9. 86WARD

    86WARD -

    Slaton went up against two teams that are very good against the run this year in Tennessee and the Jets. The Jaguars run defense isn't in the same category as either of those teams and after giving up 116 to Tim Hightower and Beanie Wells this could be a nice opportunity for Slaton to turn things around. Chris Brown will replace Slaton at the goal line, but you don't know who will get the goall ine carries in Baltimore.

    So far for the Ravens, McGahee has gotten 4 goalline carries to Rice's zero. If Rice is guaranteed to get the majority of the carries, he's a no brainer. Problem is, he's not guaranteed to get those carries according to the Ravens ball distribution over the first two games. Rice has only carried 3 more times than McGahee. McGahee also only trails Rice by one reception.

    If Rice is guaranteed the bulk of the carries against Cleveland, it's a lay up, but so far this season, Rice and McGahee have pretty much split the production right down the middle.

    I just think this week is a good opportunity for Slaton to get back on track...both rushing and receiving.

    SweetShot03 Fuck stupid people

    I would post the questions my wife and I have but on the work computer I can not access the fantasy league I am in to give you the details on point system......

    I am hoping that devery henderson WR for NO will do pretty good, the other WR I have arent really doing crap.
  11. SweetShot03

    SweetShot03 Fuck stupid people

    Donald Brown Or Derrick Ward?

    I am having a toss up becuase I am struggling with my running backs. I have Brandon Jacobs but he is doing crap for me so far.

    Donald Brown has had one alright game and one good game.

    Derrick ward is the same but has been in the game longer.

    I am confused on what to do becuase I dont know how Brown is going to be able to perform.

    id go with Brown, hes getting at least half the carries and hes by far the more superior back. id look for his workload to increase and hes going to take Addai's goalline carries to thanks to the lower-body power.
  13. 86WARD

    86WARD -

    Addai and Brown are splitting time right now and the Colts O-Line sucks hard. 71 and 61 yards are their rushing totals so far this year as a team. The Cardinals stuck Gore with 22 rushing yards. Browns not a great choice.

    Ward just got named starter so he should see the bulk of the carries in Tampa. Dallas ran for 250+ on the Giants last week, but shut down Portis two-weeks ago. He's not a good choice either.

    If I had to pick one, I'd probably roll the dice with Brown, but I'd also check the waiver wire to see what else might be out there...

    I'd play Derrick Ward this week.

    Tory Holt at flex? Why? Play LeSean McCoy instead.
  19. 86WARD

    86WARD -

    I like McCoy, Brown, Williams, Keller better than Holt at the Flex position...McCoy should be a no brainer if Westbrook is out...
