11/17/14- NFL Fantasy Live Recap

NFL Fantasy Live 11/17/14 with James Koh, Michael Fabiano, Akbar Gbajabiamila, Adam Rank, and Molly Qerim.

Here’s what you missed from Monday’s show:

  • Fabiano admits that he over-valued Shane Vereen and therefore overlooked Jonas Gray.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: At least I didn’t over-value Shane Vereen. Nobody could have seen Gray’s performance coming.  But at least I didn’t go to back for Vereen.
  • Adam Rank likes Roethlisberger as a start on Monday night, but not good for 6 TDs.. more like 2 TDs.  Think 15-20 fantasy points.  Akbar says 3, maybe 4 TDs.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown:  Put me down for 3 TDs tops.  Are we really predicting whether or not a QB will throw 6 TDs or not?  It’s gotta be hard to fill an hour long show, so I guess you have to throw silly segment fillers out there.  Personally, I’d be content with a five minute segment of just Molly Q doing… whatever.
  • Rank likes the matchup for Le’Veon Bell.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown:  Rank has Bell good for 13.4.  Akbar predicts 18 for Bell.  I have Bell putting up 13.8.  
  • Akbar notes that Delaine Walker is questionable, but you shouldn’t expect much production from him if he does play.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: If you have Walker in your lineup at this point, you are a desperate fool.  And I mean that in the best way.
  • Rank doesn’t like Bishop Sankey because he doesn’t get in the end zone.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: I agree.
  • Injury Report: Philip Rivers, Montee Ball, Ahmad Bradshaw, Larry Fitzgerald, Emmanuel Sanders, Brandin Cooks, Dwayne Allen, Julius Thom   as.  Cooks has a broken thumb and is out 4 weeks.  Ball left game in the 2nd quarter with a groin injury, and Fabiano says to cut him if you are in a 10-12 team league.  Emmanuel Sanders took a violent, legal hit.  Bradshaw may have a broken ankle.  Fabiano doesn’t like Trent Richardson in his spot.  Dwayne Allen suffered an ankle sprain and will miss some time.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: My only thoughts are that Trent Richardson officially becomes trade bait, and Colby Fleener becomes a waiver wire object of desire.
  • Who should I add: Kenny Britt or Josh Gordon?  Fabiano says Gordon
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: Sad.
  • Who should I drop: Wes Welker or Marques Coltson?  Akbar says drop Colston.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: Wrong.
  • Who should I add: Alfred Blue or C.J. Anderson?  Fabiano says Anderson
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: Fabs got something right.
  • Who should I drop: Jerick McKinnon or DeAngelo Williams?  Akbar says Williams.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: I say Williams, too.  I also say drop Cam Newton, but that wasn’t part of the question.
  • Fabiano says pick up Kenny Britt.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: I say pick up a new career, Fabs.
  • Akbar says start Jordan Matthews every week
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: I agree, Admiral.  But.. you’re off by a year.  Start him every week, next year.
  • Fabiano likes Josh McCown, Akbar was impressed with Ryan Mallett, Koh thinks Shaun Hill is a good game manager.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: If you are starting any of the QBs, you are not going to the playoffs.
  • Trade Deadline Tips: Fabiano says trade from strength (trade from positions where you have depth).  Rank says don’t make a panic deal, don’t trade for the sake of trading.  Akbar says trade 1 for 2, or 2 for 3 to attack weak areas in your roster.  Koh says if you are out of it, trade for your favorite player.
    • Broadway’s Breakdown: Not bad advice on all fronts.  But, if you are out of it, I say trade 5 starters for a top 5 player regardless of position.  Andrew Luck and a bunch of C+ starters can win you a few games.
