to start Texans players. They're better used as trade bait.


Like I said, stick to real football analysis. This is possibly the worst fantasy advice I've read this year.

Actuallly, right now GP's advice looks pretty good. Dump while you have a chance to get anything for them.

He's been lighting it up. I have him as well, this is a juicy matchup. You can't play with your heart in FF, especially being a Texans fan...lol

Look at this way, he if he blows and Houton wins, it's a good day. If we get dominated at least you can say to yourself that your FF team did well. Best case, he puts up good numbers but Schaub out duels him.
I hope you started Rivers per my suggestion. He got me a ton of points. I would gladly trade them all for a Texans victory however.

Funny how you didn't make the smarmy comment before yesterday's game. After the Colts game, it didn't look like Foster was going to get much work. Hindsight is normally better, and certainly easier, but whatever.

Schaub. Jacksonville's secondary is horrible and I expect our passing offense to rebound this week. Additionally, Arian Foster has proven himself to be a stud in every facet of the game. He could easily turn a short screen into a long TD.

Well, if you came away from that game thinking Foster would suddenly become an afterthought in the Texans offensive game plan, that folly is on you. It was one game, a game in which the Texans trailed, and every time he touched the ball he made things happen. You are guilty of letting your fan frustration affect your fantasy football analysis. So what if he got fewer touches than he should have against the Colts? He still got 24 touches and 27 fantasy points! And you're advising people to trade him?!?!?! That is crazy talk.

He leads the NFL in yards from scrimmage and rush+rec TDs, he's the top-rated player in most yahoo leagues, and he shows no signs of slowing down. There are only two guys I'd trade him for, and even then I doubt I'd make that trade as both Peterson and Chris Johnson have brand name value that makes them slightly overvalued for trade purposes. Simply put, you'd have to give more than Foster to get one of them in return, when they should all be equally valued.

When you have a breakout stud that you drafted for great value, you hold him tight and make others overpay. The last thing you do is trade him away. Think Priest Holmes....

I hope you all picked up Ajirotutu like I suggested. I was one of the few people on this board who wasn't unfamiliar with his name and expected him to blow up against our porous pass defense. If I'd had the roster space, I would've done it myself but I can't afford to drop Malcom Floyd for a one-week play.

Eli Manning against the Cowboys, or Mike Vick against the Redskins?

Heh, that's a nice WDIS problem to have this week. I'd lean towards Vick as he's the more dangerous dual threat and he has a full arsenal of weapons at his disposal now that DeSean Jackson is back. Regardless, you can't go wrong with either choice.

Peyton or Vick?! I have Wayne and Tamme so I could handcuff TD's by starting Peyton, but I am worried about starting 3 colts.

Is it 4 or 6 points for passing TD's?

Manning has thrown 12 TD's in his last 4 games so he's kind of hard to bench right now. But if you're only getting 4 points per TD then Vick might be better due to his rushing abilities.

Like Mailman said though, you really can't go wrong with either of those two.

I would have gladly made the smarmy comment before the Chargers game. Foster got me 22 points in the Colts game. Still definitely worth a #1 RB spot.

Sounds like another situation where you can't really go wrong. Peyton is the safer play but Vick has more upside IMO. Just depends how much risk/reward you want to chance.

Arian's weekly point totals in one of my Yahoo leagues.

44
12

33

If anybody is going to trade Foster, please trade him to me. I would be more than willing to take him off your hands.

I agree with dc. It depends on your league scoring.

Assuming your trade deadline is approaching, you might consider shopping Vick around to improve your team's weakness.

Pick up Mike Sims-Walker regardless of who your receivers are. Just picked him up and started him over Dwayne Bowe (I also have Reggie Wayne and Anquan Boldin) who has like 5 touchdowns in the last 4 games. You know Sims Walker is going to have a monster day against our horrible defense.

Pick up Garrard too if you don't have a solid QB to start. Garrard threw 4 TDs against Dallas before the bye and now he gets to play our defense.

Yep, play all your Jaguars. The Texans D is a boon to fantasy owners everywhere. Always start your vs. Houstons.

Coincidentally, the Texans (and Jacksonville) were a major consideration in a blockbuster deal that I just pulled off in my ppr/return league. I gave up Ahmad Bradshaw + Anquan Boldin + Shiancoe and in return I got Chris Johnson. He is absolutely going to go bonkers down the stretch with Moss there and tasty matchups against the Texans twice, Jacksoville once, and Indy once.

I now have the best damn RB duo in fantasy land in Foster and CJ3, not to mention Aaron Rodgers, Roddy White, and Percy Harvin.

Should I trade away my depth at RB to get back what I lost in Boldin?

One of the guys in my league is super rich at WR (Nicks, AJ, Lloyd, Tampa Mike, R. Moss) and hurting at RB. His team has done well but is fighting it out for a playoff spot with three other teams.

Should I try and trade away my RB depth in Hillis for one of those guys? Fwiw I have both Foster and CJ3 handcuffed with Ward and Ringer.
