Week 16: Start/Sit (Thursday Edition)

December 17, 2008 Leave a comment

Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I was very busy preparing for an Arbitration (stupid “job”) and I am leaving tomorrow for the holidays, so needless to say, Fantasy Funk took a backseat… But I thought I would throw something together for the Thursday night game.

Colts @ Jaguars

START:

Peyton Manning: He is playing at a very high level.

Dominic Rhodes: Should fill in for Addai and play well against a suspect defense.

Reggie Wayne: Has not produced as expected lately, but he is a must-start.

Dallas Clark: Do not expect numbers like last week, but he is almost always worth a start.

Maurice Jones-Drew: Fred Taylor is out, so MJD will get all the work.

SIT:

Joseph Addai: He is still beat up and Rhodes is out-producing him. Officially, he is listed as “questionable”.

Marvin Harrison: If you are still playing at this point in the season, you should have better options. And he is listed on the injury report as “questionable”.  UPDATE: Harrison did not make the trip to Jacksonville, so he is out.

Anthony Gonzalez: See Harrison, Marvin. UPDATE: With Harrison out, Gonzalez makes a better play. But I still do not expect much from him.

David Garrard: The Colts are pretty solid against the pass, despite last week. And Garrard does not have Calvin Johnson to throw to.

Fred Taylor: He is on IR. So at least I am guaranteed to get one right.

Dennis Northcutt: The Packers made him look good. The Colts will not allow him to repeat last week’s surprise performance. Although, if you are desperate, I suppose someone in Jacksonville has to catch the ball.

Week 15: Injury Updates

December 13, 2008 2 comments

QB Jeff Garcia: Garcia is questionable and may not start. If he cannot go, QB Luke McCown would get the start. I do not recommend either of them against the Falcons. UPDATE 12/15/08: Garcia has been ruled out. QB Brian Griese will get the start.

QB Gus Frerotte: Frerotte (back) is doubtful. If he cannot go, QB Tavaris Jackson will get the start. Avoid him. Even against the Cardinals.

QB Matt Hasselbeck: Hasselbeck is out this week. QB Seneca Wallace will get another start. If you are desperate, he might do well against the Rams.

RB Brandon Jacobs: Jacobs (knee) is out this week. Look for RB Ahmad Bradshaw and RB Derrick Ward to get more work. Both have a pretty good matchup against the Cowboys.

UPDATE 12/15/08: RB Reggie Bush: Bush (knee) will undergo an MRI on his knee and may miss the rest of the season. With Bush out, expect RB Pierre Thomas to get more carries and perform pretty well.

RB Fred Taylor: Taylor (hand) is on IR. RB Maurice Jones-Drew will get all the carries.

RB Frank Gore: Gore (ankle) will not play this weekend. RB Deshaun Foster will get the start.

RB Marion Barber: Barber (toe) is listed as probable this week. But even if he does play, he will likely split carries with RB Tashard Choice, who looked good last week against Pittsburgh.

RB Ray Rice: Rice (shin) is doubtful. So look for RB Willis McGahee and RB Le’Ron McClain to get more work.

RB LenDale White: White missed two straight practices this week. His status for the game against the Texans is unclear. If he cannot go, expect RB Chris Johnson to have a big game.

RB Joseph Addai: Addai (shoulder) is questionable this week. I expect RB Dominic Rhodes, who has been playing well, to get more work. He has a very good matchup. UPDATE 12/15/08: Addai plans to dress for the game, but I expect Rhodes to get nearly all the carries, still.
