2011 Fantasy Football Week 8 IDP Rankings

Got a lot of requests for some Individual Defensive Player (IDP) rankings. So I played my hand at it.

There is a lot of discrepancy in how points are awarded for IDP slots. I am in an IDP league that rewards points heavily to the players with a high volume of tackles. Some of the research that went into these rankings gave only fractional points for tackles and more for turnovers. While some of them were evenly split.

If you see that your IDP league is more tackle heavy, you might have to adjust. I have provided some statistics to help you mix and match how your league is played.

This is my first IDP article, so please tell me in the comments what you think.

Week 8: Pick'em Predictions

A pretty damn straightforward week here.

Looking at pick'em sites you will see that 9 of the 13 games are picked by 90% of the voters. So lots of pretty easy  guarantees this week. Titans, Saints, Giants, Panthers, Ravens, Texans, Bills, Lions, 49ers.

Some upsets are possible here. Part of me is looking at the Vikings to make a run at the Panthers on the legs of Peterson. And I've got a funny feeling that the Chargers/Chiefs game could be a lot closer than San Diego fans want it to be.

I've only got one upset picked here and that is the Steelers over the Patriots. Definitely a high score possible here, but I think Big Ben will get it done through the air. Potential big game for all Steelers receivers here.

If you've got an upset in store, let me hear about it.

2011 Week 8 Fantasy Football Position Rankings

Another week and another round of position rankings. A bunch of new faces are gracing the top spots at a number of positions after the Week 7 injury bus rolled in.
The running back rankings took the biggest hit as we see some surprise names stepping up from their RB2 and RB3 positions into the fantasy football spotlight. It is going to be a fun week to watch for sure as sleepers are everywhere on the board.
While we are getting primed to look at what some rookies and backups are able to do in Week 8, let’s first take a glance at the fantasy football position rankings..
As per usual, now is the time to start asking your questions. And let me know if there are any repeats or gross errors, or if you have a sleeper you think should be on the list.

2011 Week 8: Waiver Wire Pick-Ups

Just like every other week, we have all been hit hard by injuries. If you were fortunate enough to escape them before, you are most certainly reeling now.

I'm sure that you all have read about the injuries and replacements from other major fantasy football sites, but lets break it down a little bit more. GHL will do some research for you. Here's a list of your top pick-ups for Week 8.

Bernard Scott, Cincinnati Bengals

Not an injury to start with, but a suspension. Cedric Benson will serve his one-gamer. Scott could be the best of the backups here and is among the least owned, currently just 4% in ESPN leagues. Seattle is giving up 105 per game, which isn't too shabby considering that they are always playing from behind.

Scott has averaged roughly 4 yards per carry in his career. He only has 700 yards and two scores since starting his career in 2009, but he does have upside this week if you are in a pinch.

Alfonso Smith, Arizona Cardinals (0.1% owned)

Beanie Wells with a knee injury that will likely cost him a game or two. Really, it was just a matter of time. Arizona has been able to run the ball well this year, making his backup a pretty interesting grab. Alfonso Smith will be in front of Larod Stephens-Howling in the depth chart when the Cardinals go up against the Ravens.

Ravens are definitely a tough team to run on, and LSH had a great reception after Wells went down, so Smith, again is definitely on an "only if you desperately need him" status.

Roy Helu, Washington Redskins (15.3% owned)

We all know that Hightower is gone for the year, making the Mike Shanahan-induced running back roller coaster a bit more bearable. It is easy to imagine that most of the work will go to Ryan Torain, but if we can learn anything from the Redskins' past, we know that Helu has a chance for a couple big games this season.

So far this year, Helu is averaging nearly 5 yards per carry, the same as Torain. Making it even more interesting knowing that one of these guys is going to have a big statistical week every time the Skins touch the field. I like him as a pickup. Washington is a running team, and while he is still a risk, he has a great deal of upside.

Lance Ball, Denver Broncos (0.1% owned)

Willis McGahee suffered an injury as well this weekend. And Moreno will be getting the start. But, lets not forget that Moreno is pretty terrible. It is not too big a stretch to imagine that backup Lance Ball will get some work as well, and perhaps even take over most of the carries, much like McGahee did at the beginning of the year.

Ball has done very little in his career, but hasn't had much time to show what he can do. Definitely a reach here. I really just wanted to put him here to impress some people with my depth of knowledge of the Broncos rush offense. You like it, I know.

I'm going to avoid Leon Washington here. Marshawn Lynch has not been able to get the job done this year due to the lack of passing game and the terrible blocking on the Seahawks front. Chances of a breakout here are slim to none.

Also saying no to Kregg Lumpkin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Earnest Graham was having a great run with Blount out of the picture, but don't expect the same from Lumpkin. Bucs have a bye this week, and Blount could very well be returning by the time they hit the field again.

Michael Bush is a great play with McFadden's injury. His backup Taiwan Jones is a hell of a stretch as well. He has had little to no work so far. He will likely see a handful of carries as long as McFadden is missing, but Bush should be the star for the time being.

If you have not put a claim in for Jabar Gaffney, then now is the time to do so. I expect Fred Davis to be the big winner in Santana Moss's injury, but Gaffney has been playing well this season and his targets should be going way up as the number one receiver.

Second wide receiver pickup would be Michael Jenkins of the Minnesota Vikings. Percy Harvin reinjured his ribs and has not been putting up the numbers we have been expecting. Jenkins is coming off a great week and Ponder is performing very well.

NFL Week 7 Pick'em Predictions

Alright, I've been doling out some pretty solid fantasy football advice, I have to say. So I'm going to take that as a consolation for having another pretty crap week in Week 6 at pick'em. 52-38 is not sexy.

Jordan and I disagree on a couple of games this week, so lets check them out:

Bears vs Bucs. Game is in London, should be windy, probably rainy. Bucs still without Blount, Bears still without an offensive line. I think the Bears are going to win this one, but all I can pretty much guarantee is that this one will be pretty sloppy.

Broncos vs Dolphins. I'm not sold on Tebow as an elite fantasy quarterback like nearly everyone else is. But I am definitely not sold on him as a starting NFL quarterback. Sure he could run for a score, but we can see in games past that Miami is losing games because they struggle against the pass. And Denver is rocking a quarterback who can't exactly do that very well. Dolphins win their first at home.

Titans vs Texans. Take your pick really. I like the Texans this week. Not sure why, just a hometeam advantage I'm sure. Hoping Schaub finally makes a mark with a receiver with Andre Johnson gone for a while.

Chargers vs Jets. Sanchez had something like 20 yards passing in the first half of the last game against Miami. Chargers > Dolphins. I really like Malcolm Floyd as a fantasy option in this game.

I went Cowboys with my guarantee pick. Ravens, Saints, Steelers also good options.

Fantasy Football Strategy: How to Pick A Smart Trade

**Before we start the post. As you all probably know, the Ronnie Brown trade did not go through. If you need a RB. Get Morris. I have a funny feeling that Best isn't coming back any time soon.**

With all the noise made this week in the NFL about trades, I thought it was time to address the art of the fantasy football trade.
I get a lot of questions on the site about trade advice and while a lot of it has to do with predictions, there is a bit of a science to it that entails looking at the past. With a little bit of time, and a little bit of math, you can figure out if a trade is right for you in just a few simple minutes without getting stuck in overthinking things.

Week 7 Fantasy Football Position Rankings

Another week of rankings is all set. Got a handful of players that are surprises this week, so I'll be looking to make a sleeper post in the near future to explain them all. A few updates on trades and their impact on fantasy can be found here.
As always, feel free to ask any questions that you have. For your convenience, this post will be tagged as "Position Rankings" so later in the week instead of scrolling forever, you can simply click the category on the right. I know, I'm pretty great.
This week has been all about improvement and expansion for GHL. You all have probably noticed the new layout, so please take a minute to answer the poll on the left hand side. There will be a new one up each day, so make sure you come back and help out your fellow GHL-reading fantasy owner. I'm picking the poll questions based on comments left in the blog or questioned ask to GHL through Twitter (@godhateslosers).
As far as expansion goes, I ask each of you who finds this helpful to either hit the tweet or facebook button, or even something as simple as telling a friend outside of your league about us. The more people know about GHL, the better.
If you're looking for some light GHL reading, check out a post I did for ffblife. Its about my starts and sits for the Tampa Bay/Chicago game taking place at Wembley Stadium in London. You can find that here:
And away we go...

Trades, Injuries and Changes Shake Up Fantasy Football Rosters **updated

**updated: Detroit Lions acquire running back Ronnie Brown

For the past five weeks it seems that we have had to shake up our fantasy football rosters and rankings based on the weekly injuries constantly hitting NFL teams. Well, we seem to be alleviated from that this week, but faced with a delightful set of new problems. Rather than a host of unwanted injuries, we now get to modify our rosters based on a delightful combination of injuries, trades and replacements.

Let’s start from West to East.

GHL Feedback and Changes

Published an article at "One Man's Opinion: Avoid Fantasy Football Across the Pond"
Check it out!

In the last article I posted some question for you and got some great feedback about how I can improve the site.

In the coming weeks, I will be doing all that I can to add some of these features to the site. As you can see now, in the right column, there are a handful of tags where you will be quickly redirected to the topic of your choice (pick'em, strategy, position rankings). Hopefully this will keep you from having to scroll forever to get to the information you are looking for.

Also, I'm working on creating a poll to get some further perspective on some of the tougher questions asked on this site and Twitter (@godhateslosers). Tuesday through Saturday there will be a new poll question posted allowing you to help out a fellow GHL reader. I will select the questions for the polls based on difficulty.

In the meantime, expect GHL to be running as always. And if you have any other ideas to improve upon the site, just let me know! And don't forget to tell a friend or two about us, add us on Twitter, and keep sharing the posts you love the most!

How's My Advising? - Week 6 Fantasy Wrapup

Hey GHL fans.

I've seen a lot of people on the site and answered a lot of questions. I am quite close to 300 followers on Twitter (I honestly don't know if that is good or bad). I've been writing a few articles for other sites to try to draw more traffic to this one, all so I can better serve you.

So, I would greatly appreciate it if you all could take a little time out of your day to help out GHL.

  1. How are we doing? You like the site, don't like the site? Anything you want to see more of or less of? What can we do to make this the go-to place on the web for fantasy football advice?
  2. There are a lot of little things on the blog and each article. Lots of you have been commenting on our posts and asking your questions and we appreciate the hell out of it. But if you like a particular update, or if our advice works for you.. we'd really appreciate a little love in return. Hit a Google +1 button, Share it on Twitter or Facebook. Maybe itll act as a little Karma.
  3. Tell a friend. I know it would be crazy for me to ask you to post this site's URL to your fantasy football competitor, but I'm sure you've got a friend or two in another league. Go ahead and tell them about us.
I thrive on positive feedback and boosts to my ego, so seeing more traffic would be an incredible advantage to everyone involved.

So please, the next time you see something on GHL that you like. Share the love a little. Its what all those crazy buttons are for.

If we all work together and do our part.. I can become famous. And that is really the end goal for all of us.

Week 6 Advice Time

Hey all.

Once again I will be taking and answering all questions on this site until 10am (ET). After that, I will be away from the computer, but will have my phone so you can ask any questions you have on Twitter @godhateslosers.

Ask away!

2011 Week 6: Revisiting Shuffling Defense Strategy (SDS)

It's a lovely boring Saturday, so what could possibly be better than pouring over fantasy football stats to share with you? Not a thing.

We are five weeks through the season, and it seems that we are finally able to see a bit of a picture showing up in consistency of NFL teams.

Before the season began, I introduced to you my Shuffing Defense Strategy.

Essentially, this strategy boils down to changing your defense out each week. Rather than picking a defense to roll with the entire year, you can earn a higher fantasy point total from your defense by strategically choosing your defense from the free agency based on the team that they are playing against.

Let's take a look at the highest scoring defenses so far in the NFL and compare them to a perfectly deployed SDS.

Week 6 Running Back and Wide Receiver Sleepers

This has been a prime year for sleeper candidates. It seems that every week a new name emerges and has the waiver wire buzzing.

This is largely in part due to the big names that are going down nearly every week with injuries. So if you are in that boat, fear not.

If you lost a key player like Jamaal Charles early in the year. Or suffered in the beginning with setbacks from Frank Gore, Arian Foster, Miles Austin and a slew of other receivers. Or were dealt a blow recently with the injuries to Andre Johnson, Joseph Addai and LeGarrette Blount.

Now is the time to curse a little bit, settle down and start shopping for the fantasy football hit, that is sure to pop up in Week 6.

Follow along for the list of running backs and wide receivers that I like to perform higher than expected this week. Who knows, one might be available in your league.

NFL Week 6 Pick'em Predictions

Giants lost to the Seahawks. Awful. So, like roughly 80% of all those who started, I am now out of Survival Football. Who'd have thought. Oh well. Once again, it goes to show you how insane this year has been so far.

Last week was not out best outing. My Girlfriend's Little Sister Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Mo'ed her way into a better weekend record than Jordan and I. I predict a Week 6 breakthrough though as we are starting to get a better handle on these teams.

I think the Panthers finally pull together a win against another underwhelming favorite, the Atlanta Falcons. Redskins win at home in their rivalry with the Dream Team. The Browns burst the Raiders' bubble. And the Cowboys rebound against the Patriots on the wings of Rob Ryan.

If I were still in it and had to make a Survival pick, I'd say that I'm most confident in the Steelers over the Jags, Jets over the Dolphins and Saints over the Bucs.

Excited to hear about your upset picks. I suggest that everyone who reads this scrolls down to the eminent Allan B comment, as the man is an upset savant.

The Price of Losing

Everyone, if they read GHL closely, knows that Andrew whupped my ass this weekend. I could say a lot about injured players and under-performances, but, you know what, that's fantasy football. No whiners. To adapt a famous line from a deservedly famous movie scene: There's no crying in fantasy football. No matter how well one game plans for a matchup, there is still the Quasimodo-faced specter of pure, unadulterated LUCK with which one has to deal.

The stakes: drinks, Diet Coke (our favorite soda), and a humiliation photo. The embarrassment: eternal.

~ Jordan

UPDATE: I actually posted the photo, but one reader accurately described my appearance as being that of a "little wiener", so it's been taken down. Thanks, fans. You're the best. My humiliation photo was actually humiliating. You rule.

Fantasy Football Week 6 Position Rankings

Week 6 Position Rankings
A little bit upset to see that we are already over a third of the way through this fantasy season. So far so good on this end. Hope that these weekly rankings are getting the job done for everyone.
Got a handful of wide receiver sleepers since they seem to be popping up every week. I have a feeling about Torrey Smith this week. Same goes for Michael Crabtree, Antonio Brown and Greg Little. I am finally sold that Victor Cruz is pretty legit. As long as Eli keeps going deep with it, Cruz will put up numbers.
Running back, as usual has a pretty sharp drop off. I would expect Felix Jones to put up a good show. It is going to be interesting to watch some backups play this week with Earnest Graham likely getting a lot of the work with Blount out, and a likely split between Delone Carter and Donald Brown with Addai out.
As always, feel free to post any questions or comments you have on this post in preparation for this weekend’s faceoffs. Also, let me know if you have any great sleeper picks or see anyone that I left off the list.
