Who To Draft: Chris Johnson or Darren McFadden? (2012)

Posted by in Who To Draft on August 26th, 2012 | 1 Comment

Darren McFadden vs. Chris JohsnonWho should I draft with the 9th pick, Darren McFadden or Chris Johnson?

After the top three runningbacks (Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, and Ray Rice) are off the board, many fantasy owners will be trying to decide between Chris Johnson or Darren McFadden as the next back off the board. Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Matthew Stafford are likely 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 off the board. Your 2012 fantasy football draft will really start to get exciting around the 9th pick and odds are that you’re trying to decide between Chris Johnson and Darren McFadden.

Each back has some concerns going into the 2012 season. Can Darren McFadden stay healthy? Will Chris Johnson rebound from a poor 2011 campaign? Last year was a disappointing season for Chris Johnson who held out throughout the offseason until he landed a huge contract. Johnson saw career lows in yards, touchdowns, and yards-per-carry. Darren McFadden, on the other hand, got off to a great start in 2011 and put up ridiculous numbers in his first four games of the season until going down with a sprained foot in week 7 which kept him out for the remainder of the season.

Let’s start off by comparing the stats.

Week 16 Championship – Start or Sit – Hakeem Nicks or DeSean Jackson?

Posted by in NFL Week 16 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 22nd, 2011 | 2 Comments

Question: I’m in the Championship Game and I’m debating whether I should bench Hakeem Nicks or Laurent Robinson in favor if DeSean Jackson.

My current starters:

QB – Philip Rivers
WR – Calvin Johnson
WR – Hakeem Nicks
WR – Laurent Robinson
RB – Ryan Mathews
RB – Arian Foster
TE – Jermichael Finley
W/R – Roy Helu
K – Jason Hanson
DEF – Houston

Bench: DeSean Jackson, Aaron Hernandez, Carson Palmer, Cam Newton, Jabar Gaffney, and Kahlil Bell

Thank you

Best answer:

I would definitely start DeSean Jackson over Laurent Robinson. That is a ridiculous line with Jackson in. You may want to then sub Laurent Robinson for Roy Helu at the flex. Helu’s carries have been going down.

Week 3 – RB – Forte, Jackson, Lynch, or Jacobs?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on August 4th, 2008 | 5 Comments

Question: Need help picking my RBs for week 3.

QB: Matt Hasselbeck, Jake Delhomme or Carson Palmer

RB: Matt Forte, Steven Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, Brandon Jacobs, Larry Johnson, or Steve Slaton (Pick 3)

Best answer:

Jake Delhomme – Delhomme will be getting Steve Smith back. Palmer has been struggling and Hasselbecks WRs are hurt.

Steven Jackson – Jackson will go nuts in SEA as this the Rams best chance to get a win while Seattle’s offense is struggling.

Marshawn Lynch – Lynch should have a very good game against OAK as the Bills will get great field position all day against a terrible offense.

Brandon Jacobs – Jacobs will run all over the Bengals.

What do you think? Answer below!
