Question 1: Asked by Jon
I have Gates in one league and Zach Miller in another league. Jacob Tamme is available in both of them as a possible fill-in for their injuries… but I really only have Ronnie Brown that I want to drop (yes, in both leagues), would you do it?
Well Jon, that is a tough call. Tamme should not still be available after the promising performance last week but you don’t need a 2nd TE with the starters you have. Since there hasn’t been a firm decision yet on either of the TEs, just wait it out and see if either guy starts and save the roster spot. And don’t worry too much about missing out on Tamme, Greg Olsen is likely available as well and going against the Bills who had allowed seven TDs to the TE position in four games (excluding last week).
Question 2: Asked by littlelucky33
Schaub vs SD or Big Ben @ Cin? I shouldn’t be too worried about one bad week last week for Big Ben should I?
I wouldn’t worry about one bad game, no. Especially when Schaub has been a disappointment for about 8 weeks so far =/. The match-up is what breaks the tie here for me. Statistically, the Chargers have the best defense in the NFL and that has been especially noticeable when looking at the fantasy points allowed to the QB position. The not-so-Super Chargers have only allowed an average of 9 points per game to the other team’s signal caller and while this is partially do to an easy schedule thus far, Schaub hasn’t played his best football as of late and I would be more comfortable going with Ben against a banged up Bengals secondary. You can see my original answer and the answers of others on Fandemic.
Question 3: Asked by@RealBloomington
Pierre Garçon or Dwayne Bowe as 3rd WR???? #fantasyfootball
Well, you may have heard me talk about Bowe over the past two weeks or you may not have… but I predicted his two good games in weeks 6 and 7. They where due to great match ups against the Texans and Jaguars who are both unspeakably bad at defending against opposing wide receivers. Even though it is unclear how effective the Raiders pass defense would be if Nnamdi Asomugha was inactive (and it looks like he will be), Bowe proved last week that he is a risky play for fantasy owners by only amassing 16 yards against the Buffalo Bills. Garcon is just a much safer play this week, but the decision does get tougher if we hear that Asomugha will indeed be inactive.
