Says Sproles can't handle the beating.

Sproles is good out of the backfield but as a runner I don't think he can get it done. Maybe if the Chargers OL wasn't in the shape it was in he would look better but this is the major reason I don't see the chargers winning 8 games this year.

Don't know why, but it's still funny to me to hear retired legends like John Elway talking about fantasy football. His analysis seems pretty spot on to me.

chargers have a LOT of problems the media doesnt recognize. questionable oline, passing defense sucks, they let the raiders run up and down the field. if jeff garcia was in at the raiders game, they would have destroyed the chargers, no question.

He didn't practice Wed or Thur.

Sat out today too. Nice, I have Sproles.


Conundrum now, Sproles Vs. Baltimore or Jamal Lewis Vs. Denver...

20 team league with QB intensive points? Doesn't seem like a bad idea to me.

Sproles is a good player it would hard not to start him, but man Balt has a physical D.

I don't know who he passed on or where he was picking, but you can get a QB who will produce the same numbers as Schaub later in the draft. Kyle Orton, Shaun Hill, Cassel, Hassleback, Chad Pennington, Flacco, Carson Palmer, Trent Edwards, Jason Campbell, Matt Ryan....

I don't like to draft QB's early. As long as I can get 10 points from my QB week in and week out I'm happy.

LT has been ruled out this week against Balt.

If San Diego follows KC's gameplan from last week, expect Rivers to have a good game.

Isn't James Davis still hurting, too? Who runs it for CLE? Harrison? I thought he was banged up, as well.

He won't get more than 55 yards rushing against us. 68 total yards for Lewis, at the most.

So, is his team going head-to-head with two opponents per week?? I haven't seen that before, but I guess it's possible. Otherwise how do you go 2-0 after week one?

Now that I look at it, it's a 20 team league, so probably. That would hurt my brain.

I don't.

I agree, except for Sproles. No I don't believe Sproles can be their every down back but his returns get you plenty of points in FF.

dead on with his comments, although the fact that he drafted Matt Schaub scares me, unless he was pick 19 or 20

Lewis IMO.

Go with the non bkup against a lessor defense.

Broncos Improved but not with Ravens by a long shot.

Play Lewis. I'd say he could match what Benson did at least. Maybe not 100 yrds, but probably a TD.

Nope. He's in 2 separate leagues. From the article:

He says he made the playoffs last year and started out 2-0 in his leagues this season

I'm not ready to say we "shouldn't" have drafted Marshall ... he's had two massively productive seasons, and could still bounce back strong now, it's still way early.

Plus, we got him in THE FOURTH ROUND remember! :moody:

He's already outplayed his draft position, even were he to retire tomorrow.

Heh...good point. Going against "sprocket" Sproles is tough, even against the princes in powder blue.

Elway hasn't played for about 10 years, get over it already.

Lewis, Denver will still give up yards. Baltimore will crush the running game.

Elway is talking about not drafting marshall in fantasy football not for the Broncos in the 4th round.

I was going up against Wes Welker today but i just heard he isnt playing. Dude has less then an hour to change his lineup.

This is a cutthroat league, but I know he works really late and probably won't wake up in time to change it.

What do you guys think. Call him and help him get Welker out and Hixon in (his 3rd wr) or just be cut throat?
