I grabbed him as a short-term solution since my reg starter is Aaron Rodgers.

I might not have any other choice, since I have MS as my starter. I'm doomed. Thursday night game this week so I gotta get it figured out. I dumped my backup a couple weeks ago.

I guess I'll have to. Hopefully Joe Flacco is available.

I'd pick him up quick then since he already has Daniels, A. Johnson, & Walters to throw to. If MS is really out 4 weeks and Sage does well, he could mean (at least for me) a chance to get into the playoffs in my league.:fans:

I don't need a QB but thought about it as a backup...then I checked the schedule. I don't see greatness.

I got Drew Brees, so I'm doing alright. On a related note, my backup qb was Schaub and on the ONLY week I needed him, he scores me a whopping one point!

Big Ben got hurt so I could have Bulger,Flacco,or Sage

I picked up Joe Flacco instead of Sage. It's a temporary stopgap for now. I may pick up Sage after this game, but no way he gets more points than Flacco on Sunday.

Big Ben got hurt so I could have Bulger,Flacco,or Sage

I had Roethlisberger and Schaub. Looking back, it was a bad decision, but I think I got both in free agency. I wasted a pick on Tom Brady and another on Derek Anderson. I had to cut one in hopes I could pick him back up when he's healthy and I decided to cut Schaub. Hopefully that doesn't come back to bite me in the ass.

OK guys!! Help me out. I gotta make a decision pretty soon. Do I take a chance with Sage, or pick up Flacco, knowing he's playing against OUR defense! I'm presently sitting in second place in my division in my league and have a good shot at the playoffs, IF I don't screw this up.

In the past it's been my conviction to NEVER play against the Texans, and I've done real well with that. I bench anyone who plays us. BUT, I don't have much to go with here, and I need someone to finish the season with. I don't think MS will be back, but, that's JMO!

Your opinions would be appreciated!!

I'd go with Joe Flacco. Our defense will give up bigger numbers than Baltimore's defense

Sage....whether he scores 20 or 5, whether Flacco goes ape crazy or Texans lose place your bets on who makes you feel better @ end of the day. you are one of the very best Texans fans EVER, how would it feel as Sage plays his heart out (you know he will) Andre/OD both go off, Slaton, Walter, Anderson, Jacoby even Moats make plays to help him out & you chose :goodbad: the devil :evilb: I mean Joe Flacco?

picked him up myself this morning so I can talk, still have Pennington starting (22) while Sage is projected for 15, Joe Flacco is projected to go for 11. :texan:

Good point, I picked up Sage but A. Rodgers is still my starter, he's been putting up respectable numbers, but I also have Cutler who's throwing against Cleveland tonight. So decisions, decisions. :thinking:

I don't think Cutler's healed from his thumb injury yet. I'd go with Rodgers.

you have absolutely a stud team then, other than Brees you can't do much better than that :)

Rodgers is projected 14 < 15 for Rosenfels. Rodgers has done well following up legendary QB Brett Farve while Sage just wants to show he is starter material & can play in this league. Rodgers still seems like his shoulder is bothering him & scored only 9 last week vs. Titans (great game however).

Well, sticking with my devotion to my Texans wins out. Don't think I could live with myself if I didn't. Just gives me that much more to scream about on Sunday!! Besides, I have AJ, and hopefully, he'll have a better game than last week. Teaming with AJ will be R. Moss, with Dom Rhodes and Drew Jones as my RBs. Scoobie DOO is my kicker. I'm keeping MS on my roster though, just in case he comes back. In my league any deal I make cost me 10 bucks. SOOOOO, Sage OWES me!! lol

here is another tip for you in regards to another Texan.

Our first undrafted-in-the-preseason player went No. 15, as Slaton went to Karabell, ahead of preseason top-25 picks Addai, Jones-Drew and Lewis. Of course, through nine weeks, Slaton had 51 more fantasy points than Addai, 15 more than Jones-Drew and 26 more than Lewis. How many people saw that coming?



"I know it sounds odd, but I do think he's safer than those other guys," said Karabell. "Slaton has been very nearly a top-10 running back this season; he's catching passes and scoring touchdowns, and with a low workload. As for Ahman Green, I just have to laugh. He can't stay on the field." - espn

I'm torn at reciever right now. I had the choice between Antonio Bryant and Shaun McDonald as free agent pickups. I took a risk and I got David Anderson. 2 TDs the last 2 or 3 games.

I grabbed him, but I'm not starting him against the Ravens. No way.

I'll be starting Matt Ryan instead against the Saints.

Antonio Bryant has been having good games these past few weeks, he's a reliable veteran. McDonald is good as well, just not sure with this ring around the QBs where now Culpepper might start. If you need a WR for just the weekend McDonald is a big maybe....not sure whats out there in your league..but Bryant is on BYE this weekend, but he should be good the rest of the season since he's gone over 100 yards receiving for the past 3 weekends.

The league puts a premium on TDs and I think Calvin Johnson is a lot more likely to catch a few compared to any other Lions reciever.

Calvin Johnson is the better receiver, just find out who's throwing to him. LOL

I'm thinking whether I should start Forte against the Titans or not.

I benched him. With Grossman at the helm, I think the Bears will fall behind early and start to throw the ball around in favor of running.

Good point, I'll decide Sunday morning whether to start him or Ray Rice.

well that didn't work out so well :bomb: sorry for the poor advice :redface: I was checking game stats & I faintly recall early in the second half Sage had like 15 points then finished with 9. one better than Andre who had 8. adding insult to injury Slaton had only 1. dark day for Texan fantasy football players :tinfoil:

Hey thats FF for ya, I thought not starting Matt Forte was a good choice and he has a decent game against the Titans. I also have Cassel on both teams and didn't start him either. Well I hope Bolden has a big game tonight cause I need the points bad.
