We have a great show for you today as we head into what is the last week of the regular season!
Most leagues are over, but if you are in your Championships this week – we have all the things you are looking for!
of course our experts are here:
His niners pulled of the 4th Quarter win – but his fantasy team could not to the same! Slim how you doing tonight?
He won the championship in one league and pounded the dailys last week! Blistr how are you tonight?
So if you guys are ready – then I’m ready, let’s cock the hammer its time for action
Fantasy Football News Buy or Sell:
1. Slim – Though Emmanuel Sanders (knee) practiced fully Friday, he is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Browns, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. “Right now it’s 50-50, and hopefully my knee won’t swell up,” Sanders said Friday. “If it doesn’t, I’ll be in there. You never know how this thing is going to react, but whether or not we make the playoffs, I’d like to go out with a bang.”
Impacts: Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests that a decision on Sanders’ Week 17 status won’t be made until shortly before kickoff, which fortunately for anyone considering the wideout this weekend, is at 1:00 ET.
Buy or Sell – If Emmanuel starts for the steelers, he should start for your fantasy team
2. Blistr – Dwayne Bowe (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers, ESPN.com reports.
Impacts: With Bowe ruled out and the Chiefs locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC, we’d expect the likes of Junior Hemingway and A.J. Jenkins to see added looks in the team’s Week 17 offense.
Buy or Sell – No Chief is worth a start this week with them locked into the playoffs as the 5 Seed in the AFC
3. Slim – Dez Bryant (back) is probable for Sunday’s game against Philadelphia.
Impacts: Bryant’s back ailment isn’t a serious issue and, even with Kyle Orton at quarterback instead of Tony Romo, owners in Week 17 leagues are all but compelled to start Bryant in the majority of cases.
Buy or Sell – Dez is still a top 10 WR with Orton tossing the pigskin
4. Blistr – Welker (concussion) won’t play Sunday against the Raiders, Gray Caldwell of DenverBroncos.com reports.
Impacts: Welker, who was able to practice on a limited basis this week, will travel with the Broncos to Oakland, both items that bode well for his chances of returning to action in the postseason, following the team’s first-round bye.
Buy or Sell – Its not really safe to play any Broncos this weekend but Welker will be a great play in your playoff pools!
6. Slim – Matt Asiata (ankle) is probable for Sunday’s game against Detroit.
Impacts: Toby Gerhart (hamstring) is out and Adrian Peterson (foot) is doubtful, so it looks like Asiata will return to the starting lineup against the Lions. He didn’t show NFL-level running skills against the Eagles two weeks ago, but his 30 carries and three catches allowed him to pile up 66 yards and three touchdowns from scrimmage. The Lions are one of the best teams in the league at stopping the run, though, so expectations should probably be low for Asiata.
Buy or Sell – No way no how do you start Asiata anywhere on your Championship team!
7. Blistr – Aaron Rodgers will start at QB in Week 17 against the Bears.
Impacts: After injuring his non-throwing shoulder early in the game the last time these two teams met, Rodgers gets the start with plenty on the line. Chicago’s defense just gave up an embarrassing amount of yards and points the Eagles in Week 16. Even though Rodgers is rusty, he may well find his rhythm and turn in a decent performance. If your league plays through Week 17, Rodgers is a strong start.
Buy or Sell – he will single-handedly win somebody their Championship this weekend
8. Slim- Randall Cobb (leg) will undergo another evaluation Saturday.
Impacts: The Packers continue to use rather optimistic language to describe Cobb’s situation, so although nothing official has been said regarding his status, it seems Cobb’s owners and Packers fans have some reason to be hopeful. Cobb is by all accounts looking good in practice, and the Packers have no reason to leave him on the shelf with their season on the line Sunday.
Buy or Sell – with Rodgers back Randall is good for at least 15 Cobb this weekend – god i hope i don’t screw that one up! lol
10. Blistr – Eddie Lacy (ankle) returned to practice Friday, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writer Tyler Dunne reports.
Impacts: Dunne said Lacy didn’t appear to do much, but at a glance it seems as if Lacy is following the same plan he did each of the past two weeks, when he sat out all practices except for a limited practice appearance Friday. He had a great deal of success in both instances, running for 84 yards and two scores against Pittsburgh after totaling 171 yards and a touchdown from scrimmage against Dallas one week earlier.
Buy or Sell – Lacy will start this week!
11. Slim – Calvin Johnson (knee) sat out Friday’s practice, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
Impacts: Johnson has often been limited at practice throughout the season, but he has not suited up at all this week. Head coach Jim Schwartz said Thursday that a final decision on Johnson’s status may not come until Sunday, but with the Lions playing for nothing more than pride against the Vikings, it should not come as a surprise if he is held out
Buy or Sell – Calvin Johnson will not start for the lions or your fantasy team
that is 11… enough!
Killing in the name of!
in this segment – our experts will rant about things they would like to kill in the name of fantasy football -
Blistr – what are you killing in the name of? Coaches who kill your team by limiting their Stud’s touches/targets….ie Norv Turner last year, Marv Lewis with Gio…Chip Kelly vs the Vikes…etc
Slim – what are you killing in the name of? a couple things 1) getting negative rushing yards when a qb kneels the ball at the end of games — not big points but just stupid 2) leagues that don’t give points for kicker extra points
