Flukie’s Fantasy Fibbits

At this time of the year everyone is in a mad dash to sure up their rosters. Make your quick adjustments and let it fly. Here are some quick fibbits to help you on your roster day decisions. What’s a fibbit? It’s flukie’s buck the trend advice. Take it for what it is.

MJD is starting to make me and a million more nervous. Last I read he “may” be held out for 2 weeks to start the season. I feel that MJD is going to start week 1 and be productive. I do however worry about weeks 2 and 3. It’s a waiting game with MJD. The cat is out of the hat so the odds of moving him to an unsuspecting owner is low. If you haven’t drafted yet I would shift over to Frank Gore, Michael Turner, or Ray Rice in the 5 spot. You have been warned.

I feel Tim Hightower has his most value right now in week 1. Whisenhunt is VERY loyal to his vets. Whisenhunt is already shaking things up changing QB and heading in the DA direction. He is not going to have DA hand off to Wells week 1. Hightower is still better at picking up the blitz and blocking. Hightower is SURE handed and experienced. Wells is the better back but Hightower is better for this situation. Feel confident to start Hightower if you don’t like your WR2/3 matchups week 1. I’m going to take my own advice and start Hightower over Santana Moss. I think Dmac is going to be gimpy and Washington has Dallas week 1. I’ll take the Hightower VS St Louis matchup ANY DAY over the Moss Dallas play. Hightower will lose value as the year progresses. Wells is going to get his share of time just not until mid season. ***Wells injured his knee after I wrote this piece. The severity has not yet been determined***

Kareem “Huggy Bear” Huggins got the RB2 spot behind Cadillac. If you are daily flukie readers you all know I broke that story EARLY last week. Derrick Ward has been cut and is off to the RB graveyard. I have high hopes for Huggy Bear. Once the Cadillac breaks down the bear moves into the starting lineup. Load up on the Bear if you are short at RB depth.

Hit the panic button if you are going into week 1 with Jay Cutler at the helm. His immaturity is shining through. He is already crying about the play calling. He will be running for his life this year with a HORRIFIC o-line. I see INTERCEPTIONS galore. Do as my staff has done and try to secure another QB anticipating death. Scotty traded for Big Ben the Molester. Not a bad play figuring he can ride out Cutler until he implodes and roll on over to the Molester by week 5.

I heard a rumor that Minnesota is making a late play for VJAX. That team is doing everything in their power to earn a Superbowl birth. I give that owner a lot of street cred. This story is just breaking as I write this. I’ll contact Adam over at vikingsgab to see how true this is. If it happens all you morons who took VJAX might be saved.

I was high on Jahvid Best as you all know. My gut was right and there is a good chance Kevin Smith will be cut from Detroit. This ends ALL speculation of a time share at RB in Detroit. Not that I ever thought there was going to be one. Jahvid Best is going to be a rock star. Feel free to draft him in the mid rounds. He is definately undervalued.

I’ll have more fibbets as the days continue in the lead up to fantasy football. I’m mobile so if my spelling in this piece is off gimmie a pass 🙂

———editor’s note: Adam at vikingsgab gives a 2.32% chance that VJAX ends up a Viking!

His actual quote on the topic “The Vikings are unlikely to go after Vincent Jackson. They already have one of the biggest payrolls in football for 2010 (thanks to Favre) and giving up picks and a ton of cash doesn’t seem like a likely scenario. VJax will almost certainly be in Seattle this year, or not playing at all”

    Who would you start Reggie Bush or Jerome Harrison week one. Looks like Hardesty is hurt again

  2. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    @AC – I dont love either player this week. Yes, Hardesty is hurt so Harrison is the #1 back. But Hillis is there along with a hodgepodge of other backs. Cleveland has KC however so I give the matchup edge to Harrison. Bush has SF who has a great D.

    If your a safe player go Bush if ur a gambler go Harrison…. I’m a betting man so i recommend playing Harrison.

  3. The Fantasy Flukie says:

    @AC – upon further reading I feel confident in Harrison. Bench Bush.

    I got some sigh of relief today as I have been looking for all the MJD news I can fine it sounds like he will be back at full practice this coming Monday.

    If you haven’t drafted yet and do get MJD a would highly recommend handcuffing him with Rashad Jennings or look into picking him up on the WW if you have an open spot.

    @JS thanks for the update. At least I feel a bit better….alas i can breath. I still grabbed James Davis as some insurance for a bench spot….ala my next piece 🙂
