Fantasy Check

Fantasy Check Live OT


Here are some questions I didn't have time to answer during the Friday chat.

Silver Spring, Md.: Sometimes too much choice isn't necessarily a good thing.

Case in point: Which 3 would you start out of Calvin Johnson, Dwayne Bowe, Sims-Walker and Pierre Garcon? My dilemma is an obvious one: play the match-ups and sit your stud. I can't seem to pull the trigger. Help!

It gets better. To Boot my RB situation looks like this: Ray Rice, Ahmad Bradshaw and Jerome Harrison.

Look I am not trying to come off as "woe is me." Anybody out there that has been in a similar situation and sat the wrong guys knows where I am coming from.

What would you do, Gene?

Fantasy Check: Calvin Johnson has been productive regardless of matchup or who the quarterback is. For me Megatron plays every week. Sims-Walker and Garcon have more favorable matchups than Bowe.

Bradshaw is a nice play since Eli Manning may do a lot of handing off because of his sore foot, and Harrison is facing the NFL's 27th rush defense.

Edwards: I'm happy with the long-term implications of the Braylon Edwards trade, but where does it put me this week?

All my other receivers have byes this week, so should I just suck it up and hope for the best?

FC: With the latest news Jerricho Cotchery is in serious jeopardy of missing Monday night's game with a hamstring injury, Edwards is looking like a more attractive play by the hour.

Richmond, Va.: My top two RBs both have terrible match ups this week (Ronnie Brown vs. NYJ and Steven Jackson vs. Min). I have Jerome Harrison and the option of picking up Ahmad Bradshaw, Tashard Choice and Chester Taylor who all have great match ups. Would it be crazy to bench Brown AND Jackson. Help!

FC: I've been telling everyone to bench Steven Jackson in a terrible matchup. Brown plays in a better offense, and his role in the Wildcat makes him a safer play than Jackson. Harrison has a very favorable matchup against a weak run defense.

Arlington, Va.: Gene - How do you feel about Sidney Rice vs. St. Louis this week? Just grabbed him off the waiver wire to fill in for a bye.

FC: I like Sidney Rice, who has 22 targets this season. Brett Favre seems in recent weeks to have him in his sights more than Bernard Berrian or Percy Harvin.

Columbia, Md.: Hi Gene, I need your help. I have both Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald on my team however I am struggling with my RBs and QBs. I have two trade offers for Moss. Wes Welker and Knowshon Moreno or Moss for Micheal Turner. Which would you pick or should I just hold out for something better?

FC: If you're not in a PPR league, Welker and Moreno for Turner is a deal I'd make. I have Moss in four of my five leagues, and I'm counting on him to have a big season. Thus if it were me, I'm keeping him.

Philadelphia: Geno - Need to pick 3 out of these 4: Steven Jackson (vs MIN), Kevin Smith (vs PIT), Knowshon Moreno (VS NE), Marshawn Lynch (VS CLE). Thanks!

FC: Smith, Moreno and Lynch. As you may have noticed, I'm down on Jackson this week. We saw how the Vikings defense bottled Ryan Grant on Monday night. The Vikings won't let Jackson beat them.
