  1. I just pulled the trigger on a trade

    Same here, both are BOTH leagues where I felt he was good value where I got him in the 2nd round. Let's hope he proves everyone wrong and strings together a nice season from here on out.
  2. "Advice" and "Advise"

    Dude, love the sponge monkey avatar. Check this link out if you like them: Kind of stupid, but still funny in a slightly disturbing kind of way I think. Can't believe Quizno's bailed on them so fast.
  3. I just pulled the trigger on a trade

    Seems like most Huddlers are extremely down on Green this year, so you'll probably be getting a lot of "bad trade" comments Brent. I still like Green a lot more than most it seems, but I play in mostly PPR leagues where he has a bit more value. All in all I think I would still prefer Portis slightly in a non-PPR scoring, but I think the difference between the two isn't great and if you're gut told you otherwise (and quite the impressive gut it is judging by your avy ) then it's probably not a bad move.
  4. "Advice" and "Advise"

    However, I'm glad someone finally posted this. It's been driving me nuts the last couple of seasons as well Furley.
  5. Greetings

    Darn you for getting that Half-Pint song stuck in my head all night.
  6. I can't hate Lelie...he's a UH alumn and I am too in a not-really-kind-of-way (I took 1 weekend class there years ago). Though I did see Tom Brady and the Wolverines come in and whoop the crap out of the 'Bows back in 1998 I believe. :doah:
  7. WDIS at Flex?

    12-team performance scoring BOTH league with 0.5 point-per-recption. My options aren't that stated above, it comes down to: Ronnie Brown vs. Carolina or Travis Taylor vs. Saints I am usually inclined to go RB at Flex, and have been starting Brown there so far. I am 2-0 in this league, but the thing is that Brown hasn't been doing much, and Carolina has a pretty stout Run-D. They held Deuce McAllister to 64 yards on 26 carries in Week 1, and Corey Dillon to 36 yards on 14 carries in Week 2. Taylor on the other hand is coming off a decent week and plays against a fairly soft D in the Saints. Plus with Burleson out, he should be the #1 receiving target for the Vikings this week. Am I just thinking too much or is Taylor the way to go? Thanks.
  8. WDIS at Flex?

    Thanks fellas, it seems like it's unanimous...Taylor it is then.
  9. And I agree with Giantsfan on this too. Only I don't hate Lelie...not crazy about him, but I'm still unconvinced that Burleson is too much of an upgrade over him, especially considering he's hurt right now. Deuce on the other hand I think is a clear upgrade over Dunn.
  10. Exactly what I was thinking on both counts. But if you want to corner the market on Denver RBs and hope that one emerges as yet another stud this season, it's not terrible as both Foster and Rogers have disappointed greatly thus far (though it has only been 2 weeks).
  11. Yankees Collapsing

    Don't look now, but there's a new AL-East division leader tonight. Well, I guess them leading the division isn't exactly "new."
  12. The reason would be because I think LT is still the best fantasy player in the game. But I think I still make that deal. I really like Deucey and Parker has looked fantastic as well. Plus I think Burleson is highly overrated. Freeing up salary cap space is just a bonus.
  13. Anyone picking up K. Rob?

    I picked up K-Rob in one of my 12-teamers last week and have a bid in for him in another league this week. The talent is there, it just remains to be seen if his head is really on straight. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but I'd pretty much guarantee he has more upside than any other WR you'd find on waivers in most leagues. I think it comes down to, if you've got a spare roster spot, why not give him a shot? But like Fenokee says, I wouldn't throw him in a starting fantasy lineup just yet.
  14. Exactly. As bad a Culpepper has looked, I'd take my chances if I could get him on the cheap.
  15. Was looking for a link and just realized where I read that...In Yo Mama's "Waiver Wire Warriors" feature on the main page (if you're a Huddle member you can check it out, he has a detailed analysis of Perry there). Here is a good quote on Perry from the Cincinnati Enquirer, and also there is a link below to the full article:
  16. Go with Perry without a doubt, especially in a PPR league. All of these guys you talk about are likely to have limited touches, but Perry has received over 10 touches in each game so far, and he looks like a monster in waiting who the Bengals are trying to integrate into their offense as much as possible. FWIW, he has 9 receptions for 70 yards so far (along with 14 carries for 58 yards) and I read today that Marvin Lewis considers him the Bengals 3rd WR. I'd rather take the chance on him than either of those other 2, and I've always been a Pittman advocate in the past.
  17. Throw me a friggin bone....

    Pretty much. Bruce isn't as old as people think...he's only 32. He had almost 1,300 yards last season, and I don't see why he can't approach that again this year. Conversely, I can't see any of those other 3 guys racking up that many yards. I'd make the deal.
  18. Barry Bonds

    Make that 4 HRs in 22 ABs. He's picking up just were he left off, despite the age and the long layoff. I mean, the guy is a complete and total a$s-hat, but still...
  19. Trade offer for Harrison

    That seems like a much better deal for you in my opinion. Westbrook doesn't come with nearly the risk that Davis does. Actually he scored 15 TDs last season...make sure to emphasize that in your trade discussions when the other dude says he is slowing down. May be true, but which problem is more difficult to remedy? Personally, I'd rather be looking for WR upgrades then RB upgrades. It's usually a lot easier to acquire a surprise or breakout WR cheaply or on waivers than it is to find a breakout/surprise RB the same way.
  20. Waiver Wire Warriors

    He's the guy I like most from this installment too. Unfortunately, the only league I own him in is one in which I really have no use for him and aren't likely to (10-team league in which I have plenty of RB depth).
  21. Ricky Williams

    Not anymore he's not. I'm not positive if this has changed or not yet, but the last I heard was that he was only making the NFL veteran's minimum salary (minus 4 game checks for his suspension) this season. His old contract with his guaranteed $ is no longer valid (potentially) because he breached it last season. Brown's only had 2 games behind a terrible O-line...I think it's way too early to call him a bust, but I do agree that if Williams stays with the Dolphins, he has a good chance to start shortly after his return.
  22. Waiver Wire Warriors

    Good work as usual Mama. I wonder though, did you intentionally omit Koren Robinson from the Viking WR analysis (I'm sure that you did), and why? From what I understand, he will likely get time at WR for the Vikes this week with Burleson out. I take it you're not expecting much from him?
  23. Just when we thought it safe to start

    The "neck" part doesn't sound so bad, as long as it's not "knee" I'm not too concerned. The dude is old and coming off serious knee surgery and a 25-carry game against a good defense. He's been in the league for 10 years and this is his 3rd in Carolina. I'm thinking they probably aren't that worried about pushing him too hard to practice as long as he's ready on Sundays. That's just my theory though.
  24. Just for fun

    ...Not that there's anything wrong with that.
