UPDATE: Injured Bills QB EJ Manuel will make the start for the Bills. He should not be in your starting lineup.
If you have questions about who to start this week I'll answer them in comments.
Give the guy a break on Tuel. Piece was obviously written before Wed. morning announcement. As for the sit RG3, I don't necessarily disagree with him on that unless you have don't have a better option. He's bound to be a little rusty. I want to see him get through one game first.
fyi...it's Vern Yip, not Kipp.
You may want to find some one more knowledgeable about the NFL to write your articles in the future...
Dude, no knowing anything about the patriots is fine and dandy, but if you are supposed to be giving out advice, its your JOB to know about them.
Sit RG3?! Hilarious. Plus ej Manuel is starting for the bills not tuel.
I don't mean to be rude, but who is going to get their Fantasy Football info from CCP?
Jeff Tuel is not even starting for the Bills, and this was announced way before this article was even posted...
"The air is thick with the aroma of sweat and hops. All the eyes in the room are glued to screens with a devotion that borders on religious, and soon these hallowed halls will be flowing with beer, cheers, laughter, anguish, and the gnashing of teeth. These sacred communal worship centers are where you can go share your fervor with fellow Charlestonians — here you can scream with zeal, shout in frustration, or wallow in solidarity with your fellow patrons. We're talking, of course, about Charleston’s sports bars."
Oh man, for a second I thought you were describing a gay bath house. Turns out you were, just a more subconscious version.
We'll be putting out an NFL list this week, just in time for Thursday night's kickoff.
I would have paid anything to see you at a Twiztid show Melissa. Well, except the price of admission.
What's the story on Prohibition? Another Craft Drink bar? So the DJ Bar trend lasted a year and a half for Mercury Bar and now its another trend that is getting over saturated downtown....well behind Beer Gardens errrr Bier Gartens.
Great advice Karl. thanks!
Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski are top producers in their offenses, however the next 10 TEs will all catch between 55-70 passes for 600-800 yds and 5 or 6 TDs. There really isn't much difference between them. If you pick Witten or Gonzalez or Vernon Davis, you are really paying for the name. Witten had 110 receptions for just over 1,000 yds last year but he only had 3 TDs. With the emergence of Dez Bryant as a superstud, I would expect Witten to get less work this year. He's also 31, the same age that Gates fell off the cliff and has had declining YPC each of the last 4 years. Gonzalez may be the greatest player ever relative to his peers at his position (after Jerry Rice) but I believe he turns 58 this year (don't quote me on that). How long can he keep it up? And the addition of Stephen Jackson to the Falcons should take targets away from him. If I had to choose any of the top TEs for a surprise year, it might be Vernon Davis. He had an abysmal 2012 catching only 41 passes for 548 and 5 TDs but he had a great run in the playoffs and SF doesn't have many targets this year.
So my point is to be conscious of the opportunity cost of picking one of these brand name TEs. Use that 4th or 5th round pick on Lamar Miller or Eddie Lacy instead and add a starting RB with upside to your bench and then pick up Jordan Cameron in the 10th round. It's much easier to find a starting TE on waivers than a starting RB. And if one of those RBs were to breakout like Alfred Morris last year, you'll be able to command a lot more than Tony Gonzalez in any potential trade.
An additional boost for Cameron is having Norv Turner as his O.C., that guy loves him some TE
A Tight end can make your season if hes a top producer in an offense.
Gronk is recovering from so many surgeries..sounds like a dangerous pick this year.
I'd prob take Witten before him.
If you wait to get a tight end, your gonna get stuck with someone that might get 400 yards and maybe 3 tds all season.
Check the offense the team runs and see if the tight end figures in as a major part of the offense.
I always imagine you wearing an eye patch and holding a bottle of Jack - Carlo! Excellent advice!
Yeah I am going to avoid fantasy insight from the CCP. As throwEmback says keep reporting on Mike Lata and less on Mike Vick.
I know Bleacher Report, and u sir, are no Bleacher Report! Leave football (fantasy or real) to ESPN, stick to covering what Sean Brock ate for lunch yesterday CP. Know ur role Gibroni!!
This is a great article. I especially agree with your assessments of Spiller, Cameron, and Graham. Whoever has those guys in your fantasy league is loving it.
What about where to watch your favorite NFL team?
