Waiver time! Who do y'all like this week?

In the WR department, I'm thinking Wilford (JAX WR2) is a decent pickup. Burleson (MIN WR1) too. My league has a very shallow bench, so I'm not big on one-week plays, otherwise I'd be taking a good look at Bryant Johnson (ARI WR2).

RBs: EBennett, DStaley, SGado, GJones, JWells.

rogermexico (rogermexico), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:24 (fourteen years ago) link

Oh, and it looks like Robert Ferguson's coming back too...

rogermexico (rogermexico), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:24 (fourteen years ago) link

I have Julius Jones (returning), Thomas Jones (maybe out), Kevin Jones (maybe out), and Willie Parker (maybe out). I'm kinda screwed.

The Obligatory Sourpuss (Begs2Differ), Thursday, 10 November 2005 18:40 (fourteen years ago) link

what's the deal with tj?

hstencil (hstencil), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:03 (fourteen years ago) link

Nov 9: Jones was forced out of last weekend's victory over the New Orleans Saints after aggravating his bruised ribs, and he has been listed as questionable for this Sunday's meeting with the San Francisco 49ers. The running back did not practice with the Bears on Wednesday, and a final decision on his availability likely won't be made until just before game time, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

Advice: If Jones cannot go this weekend, rookie Cedric Benson will get the starting nod for Chicago, while Adrian Peterson should get a few touches as well. On the season, Jones has 753 yards on 167 carries and six touchdowns in eight games. He also has 17 receptions for 66 yards.

argh i hate game-time decisions.

hstencil (hstencil), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:33 (fourteen years ago) link

Good indicator: no practice Friday = no play Sunday

rogermexico (rogermexico), Thursday, 10 November 2005 19:48 (fourteen years ago) link

So is Jones back or not? I wanna field Barber regardless, but I'd rather know he's their only option.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Thursday, 10 November 2005 20:34 (fourteen years ago) link

Julius Jones, that is.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Thursday, 10 November 2005 20:54 (fourteen years ago) link

julius is supposed to be back. thomas they're still not sure. kevin should be back, although he kind of sucks. SMOOT=FAILURE (although if any of them had been healthy I coulda taken you last week Tofu you bastige)

i'm on a first-name basis with my team and have to decide between domanick (at colts)(swollen knee, didn't practice friday), deshaun (jets), or ricky (pats).

i'm leaning toward domanick but last week ricky did me right. thanks.

I didn't realize that we were playing the full 17 weeks! Most leagues usually quit after the 16th week cuz of the dreaded "resting players" phenomenon... Not that I am complaining, as with the *second highest* point total in the league, I damn well deserve to make the playoffs.. On the other hand I will most likely be without star wideout Marvin Harrison for the Art Donovan Bowl championship

Stormy Davis (diamond), Tuesday, 13 December 2005 20:03 (fourteen years ago) link

stormy barring any upsets we'll be facing each other in the second round! it's gonna be like an old nfc championship, 'the real super bowl'.

holy shit - fredo didn't finish last.

worst possible outcome on that drive. GOD.

I saved my most dominant performance for the consolation bracket. Great.

rogermexico (rogermexico), Monday, 19 December 2005 05:07 (fourteen years ago) link

Tiki absolutely crushed me.

goddam Kansas City. Hank Stram might be my all-time fave NFL "personality", I watched the Montana MNF game, I cried when Derrick Thomas died ( I really did, only he and Walter have ever evoked that response), always been a fan of every small market NFL team (even despite the fact that Lamar Hunt tried to steal the Turkey - day game from my beloved Lions --- That's *OUR* annual national embarrassment Lamar, you putz ), rooted for ex-Wolverine Elvis Grbac when he was the QB ... but fuck it, I have absolutely HAD IT w/ KC!!! will never root for you fuxx again!! learn how to tackle!!

Stormy Davis (diamond), Monday, 19 December 2005 07:43 (fourteen years ago) link

I was offered Shaun Alexander for Priest Holmes the week before the season started. I turned it down.

I lost Priest to injuries and Westbrook to injuries/underusage. I lost Terrell Owens to him being stupid. I dropped Aaron Brooks, who I picked fifth. This was the core of my team. Heartbreaking stuff!

So naturally I led from start to finish and have a great chance to win my two playoff games as well. Go figure.

polyphonic (polyphonic), Monday, 19 December 2005 08:12 (fourteen years ago) link

All my hopes and dreams rest on Todd "Uriah" Heap. I need him to have a Chris Cooley-like game to have any chance of winning. ugh.

Here's hoping that he finds "easy livin'" against the Packers D.

Stormy Davis (diamond), Monday, 19 December 2005 21:31 (fourteen years ago) link

I've got Chet Taylor and Donald Driver. My opponent has B.J. Sams, Adalius Thomas, and Ryan Longwell. I'm up twenty points.

So to all you degenirate non-gamblers out there grumbling about what a crummy MNF game this is tonight, FEEL FREE TO WATCH "dEAL OR nO dEAL".

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Monday, 19 December 2005 22:01 (fourteen years ago) link

Now just gimme two more Heap!

Stormy Davis (diamond), Tuesday, 20 December 2005 02:17 (fourteen years ago) link

that's TWO baby!!

Gimme one more Heap!

Don't be stealin when you shoulda been buying!

Stormy Davis (diamond), Tuesday, 20 December 2005 03:56 (fourteen years ago) link

oh wait, actually with yardage I already won! kick-ass.

I am going to celebrate by listening to Uriah Heep's Return to Fantasy lp, as Todd Heap has single-handedly RETURNED me to the fantasy playoff picture!

Stormy Davis (diamond), Tuesday, 20 December 2005 04:20 (fourteen years ago) link

And I asked Gado, "Samkon, sometimes there is only one set of footprints in the sand, in my most trying times. Where were you when I needed you?"
And Gado said "That, my son, is when I got carted out in the motherfucking first quarter with a cheapjack injury. Enjoy the consolation rounds!"

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 20 December 2005 05:12 (fourteen years ago) link

your team was clearly better than mine, but i'll take it. any given monday night, man....

Haikunym (Haikunym), Tuesday, 20 December 2005 06:39 (fourteen years ago) link

Could someone explain how this works? I really want to be involved next season but fr obvious reasons I have exactly zero cultural exposure to this - there's a fantasy draft, right, and everyone puts out 15? 30? players, and then plays matches against each other with whoever scores the most winning? Is there a sort of playoffs, or does the league winner just win?

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Tuesday, 20 December 2005 21:51 (fourteen years ago) link

Fantasy draft, yes. Number of players varies depending on what sort of a league you play in. You can only play a preset number of players in each position; the league we're discussing fields one qb, three wr, 2 rb, 1 kicker, 1 team defense, 2 DB. and 2 DL. There's about 5(?) bench players that can fit any position. The first 14 weeks are all about placement and seeding for the playoffs, with the top eight seeds playing 1/8, 2/7, etc. The final three weeks of the season are the playoffs.
Which I just lost. Spectacularly.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 01:32 (fourteen years ago) link

There aren't byes? Harsh!

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 17:20 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, you have to rejigger your team around whoever's bye week is up. It's a pain, but can lead to some upsets.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 19:45 (fourteen years ago) link

I made the Championship game! My opponent had to bench Peyton Manning! You'd think that I'd be feeling like I'm in the catbird seat, but I'm wondering if Mark Clayton needs to stay in the line-up, should I put Kevin Curtis back in since the Rams might be letting their third-stringers back out, should I really consider dropping Edgerrin James in favor of Dominic Rhodes????

It's the last game of the season. I either win $15 or $265 with my decisions.

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 20:59 (fourteen years ago) link

Money!?

I am pretty hyped about this now. Who're the championship games between?

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 23:36 (fourteen years ago) link

Money in my league. I'm not involved with the ILNFLFFL.

But for what it's worth, I'm up against Wild Bill Ivy.

Pleasant Plains /// (Pleasant Plains ///), Wednesday, 21 December 2005 23:55 (fourteen years ago) link

That Wild Bill!

Good luck.

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Thursday, 22 December 2005 00:11 (fourteen years ago) link

I cannot accept GOOD LUCK. Good luck is not something that one can distribute nor recieve. GOOD LUCK is not interchangable.

My team: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/clubhouse?leagueId=525972&teamId=6

So this point in the season I'm second place in the league, and I've got some killer players (only lack of depth is at QB). Briefly for those who don't want to click the link, I've got Arian Foster, AP, LeSean McCoy, Mike Williams (Sea), Miles Austin, Mike Wallace (Pit), Steve Smith (Carolina), and Lee Evans. (I also have Anthony Armstrong + Nate Burleson.) I feel like I can dish out Lee Evans and maybe someone like Mike Williams or even Anthony Armstrong for a strong starting option, but I stink at doing trades. I'm soliciting any advice. Another team offered DeAngelo Williams for Lee Evans + Mike Williams, but I'm iffy on DW being a legit starter this year. What do you guys think? Any trades you can recommend me pursuing or should I sit on what I've got? I always feel like I blow it around this time of the year, either by making a stupid trade that I didn't need to do (I dished out Steve Slaton two years ago which ended up costing me the league championship) or missing a great opportunity to unload excess decent guys for a real starter.

Mordy, Tuesday, 26 October 2010 16:20 (nine years ago) link

I had DW in both of my leagues and I finally just dropped him off in one because he's dead weight. I'd keep Lee Evans, actually, because Ryan Fitzpatrick not only likes to throw, but he's pretty good at it.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 26 October 2010 16:36 (nine years ago) link

DW is still a good back but he and Stewart can't do much until they establish a consistent passing game.

any good sleepers i could look at picking up off waivers?

moss this, moss that, moss this, moss that (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 2 November 2010 22:13 (nine years ago) link

Blount, maybe? Not much of a sleeper anymore but might still be available in your league?

Mordy, Tuesday, 2 November 2010 22:17 (nine years ago) link

Steve Johnson (Bills) has had a TD in the last five games, and usually gets a fair amount of yards. xp
