Week 10 Heroes & Zeros

This was a great week to start

Mike Vick, QB, Eagles – Who let the dogs out??? That’s pretty obvious, after Vick passed for 333 yards and 4 TDs and ran for 80 yards and 2 more TDs, without a turnover. Unbelievable.
Matt Cassel, QB, Chiefs – Kicked butt in garbage time, with a monstrous 469 yards and 4 TDs, plus a fumble.
Kyle Orton, QB, Broncos – Had 4 TDs in the same game, with 296 yards and no turnovers.
Tom Brady, QB, Patriots – No Moss? No problem. Tom Terrific passed for 350 yards and 3 TDs, and added a short rushing TD for good measure.
Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers – Passed for 387 yards and 3 TDs, plus 1 INT.
Jon Kitna, QB, Cowboys – Shocked the Giants with 327 yards and 3 TDs, plus 1 INT.

This was a great week to play against

Jahvid Best, RB, Lions – Disappointed with just 35 rushing yards and 4 more yards on 4 receptions.
Thomas Jones, RB, Chiefs – Just 3 rushing yards and one 19-yard catch on the day.

Hines Ward, WR, Steelers – Left injured with nothing to show for himself.
Bernard Berrian, WR, Vikings – Never hit the field despite being declared active.
Jacoby Jones, WR, Texans – Caught a single 5-yard pass.
Reggie Wayne, WR, Colts – Caught 3 passes for 34 yards.
Randy Moss, WR, Titans – Just one 26-yard reception.

Brandon Marshall, WR, Dolphins – 3 receptions for 34 yards.

Jason Witten, TE, Cowboys – Just one 7-yard catch.
Brent Celek, TE, Eagles – Somehow came away with a measly 2 catches for 8 yards.

I didn’t see that coming

Jerome Harrison, RB, Eagles – When you score 59 points, the backup gets plenty of work. Like 109 rushing yards and 1 TD, plus a 15-yard reception.

Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots – Caught 5 passes for 72 yards and a trio of TDs.


  1. Hey Ladd,
    I need your help and really value your opinion. Which the crap WR's do I go with:

    D Bess
    R Moss
    J Knox
    L Evans
    N Burleson


  2. Anonymous,

    Not sure if you're standard or PPR, and how many you need. So I'll just give them to you in my standard order of preference given this week's matchups (and yes, they're all pretty crappy):

    1. Moss
    2. Knox
    3. Bess
    4. Evans
    5. Burleson

  3. Thanks for the advice Ladd-I made poor choices in trades and had injury problems all year. I need the most out of this crappy platoon of WR #3's. At least I picked up Tamme..he's helping me.and it is a PPR league.
