Matt Schaub or Vince Young for the rest of the year? -Vinnie, Carolina
Well Vinnie, Schaub has better weapons, but Young has an easier schedule. My gut leans toward Young. He has been consistent, he has Randy Moss now, and Chris Johnson keeps teams honest. Thanks for the question.
I was offered CJ Spiller for Thomas Jones in a keeper league. My season is lost. Would you do it? -Mike, St. Louis
Mike, That’s actually an interesting deal. If your league keeps enough players where you know you would be keeping Spiller, then yes I would do it. However, Spiller is a ways down in my mind’s ranking of keepers, so you must either have a horrible team or be in a dynasty type league that keeps a lot of players per team.
(NOTE: I will post keeper rankings at the end of the season)
Dear Fantasy X-Man,
Your midseason rankings are a joke. Matt Ryan #7? Ahmad Bradshaw almost in the top-10? And you have Shonn Greene ahead of Tomlinson! -Your mom
Hi Mom! haha Well, I can understand how these rankings might surprise you, but each one has legitimate reasons. Ryan has Carolina twice. He also gets Tampa Bay, Seattle, New Orleans, and St. Louis. Bradshaw is third in rushing yards, fourth among RB in yards per carry, and eighth in rushing touchdowns. Hard not to put him near the top with all that. Greene is more of a suspicion of things to come. I watched LT break down in San Diego around this time for the last few years. I fully expect Greene to make his move soon, taking more carries until the last few weeks when he will be the premiere back on the Jets.
Thanks for the questions everyone. Keep em coming.
