The Pornographic FF Plays

I know I’m on a role this week. First I write about Sexy Plays  then I relate fantasy football to pornography. Trust me there is a relation. Just here me out…. In order to get you to buy the “next porno” marketers get more and more aggresive. I have seen some crazy marketing ploys.

This is just like many players in your fantasy league. For instance I just read a piece over at fantasy phenoms  where they want you to believe Knowshon Moreno can take you to the fantasy playoff championship. Do you know of any other more outrageous statement then this? I don’t. Knowshon is averaging a mere 14 points in PPR leagues. If you take out his week two 21 point performance (against SEA) he is averaging 12 points. Alas, people in your league however will read this piece and then try to market him to you. They will preach what is written in this article about his soft playoff schedule – Arizona, Oakland, and Houston. If you are an inexperienced player you may fall prey to this “pornographic marketing.”

Another marketing play that has been batted around is “Randy Moss” now a Titan. I’m the self proclaimed WR guy and I would not touch Moss with a 10 foot pole. Winmyfantasyleague  wrote a nice piece breaking down “The Randy Moss Effect”.  I agree that CJ will benefit from this waiver wire claim. I’m not as optimistic that Moss will really get 6-8 grabs a game. Moss will be a WR#2 at best for the rest of the year. We all know they the Titans are CJ’s team and that running and ball control are the reasons for their success. Don’t trade for Randy unless you are just moving junk off the bench. Randy Moss is as over the hill as Ron Jeremy. He might get some garbage time points but his heyday is long gone.

I am not telling you to not take fantasy playoff scheduling into consideration. In some situations it makes total sense. For instance this piece on fantasy phenoms also talks about Ryan Fitzpatrick’s soft schedule weeks 14, 15, 16. If you lost Romo I would do anything (within reason) to grab him in a trade. Kitna is too unreliable to consider a fantasy playoff starter. Some people might try to stay the course with the waiver wire QB each week. I STRONGLY advise against this. Even I “the great flukie” am only 50-50 at picking successful QB waiver plays. Your best bet is to try to grab a Orton, Fitzpatrick, or Freeman from your fantasy opponents to give you a shot at success in fantasy play.

Remember Ashley Dupree’s 10 minutes of fame? The hooker who brought down the Governor of NY? Well, this very well could be the end of Patrick Crayton’s 10 minutes of fantasy fame. I consider him another rock solid start going against the 30th ranked pass defense in the league. Buster Davis is out this week along with Naane and Floyd. All Rivers has to throw to is an injured Gates, a player whose name I can’t say – Seyi Ajirotutu, and 10 minute man Patrick Crayton. Enjoy Crayton’s 10 minutes of fame while it lasts. Even our girl Ashley found a second career with the NY Post. Maybe Crayton will become a fantasy football prognosticator.
