BEAST DOME NATION.

Week 7 Rankings coming out soon.

The season is never over, until you say it is over.  If you are nearly in last place, make sure to grab Felix Jones who could be your one week spark plug to get your team going again.  Fantasy Football is a game of momentum, I’m sure if you won this past week.  Everything is great.  If your team fell, do not stay down and keep moving forward.

It All Comes Down to the Playoffs.

Use this article to help you gain an advantage on how I personally feel about every relevant fantasy player.  I am honest, and I am not biased at all as I am competing to be Top Fantasy Football Expert this season.  Which reminds me…

Thank you all for going through this season long journey together.  We both have a common goal, and as a NATION. we will get there.

  1. Why is James Starks a must add? With Green getting 22 carries and Starks only seeing garbage time I figured he isn’t going to be worth much.

    1. I read that the head coach said he sees no problem with green carrying a full load going forward and Starks is only backup. Do you see this changing munt?

    2. Sorry Guys the post on Alex Green and James Starks was notes I had while watching the game and I did not go back to change it after the coaches press conference on Monday.

      I see this shaking out as Alex Green has a..Prove you are the real deal game against the Rams this week. I do not see him doing well as he had trouble against the Texans Run Defense only getting 3 YPC. He did not show any explosion and did not have one run that was 10 Yards or longer. Was not impressed.

      If Green Struggles Sunday, which is likely. Then I can see Starks getting his chance.

      Starks can be on the Waiver Wire for now, but he does have RB #2 Potential locked up.

  2. Trying to trade S. Smith and Hartline for A. Morris, good trade?

    I have no running game right now with D. Murray and Mendy. My Other rbs are
    D. Martin
    Quizzz
    Starks
    D. Wilson.

    My wrs are
    Harvin
    Wayne
    S. smith
    Amendola
    Hartline
    J. Gordon.

    I feel like I really need to make a move for a solid rb and the package for S. Smith and Hartline for somebody, if I can’t pull off Morris who else should I target?

  3. Thanks again Muntra, loving your site.

    In an 8-team league and just wondering about your (and anyone else’s) thoughts on a trade looking more at the long term than just W7.

    My R Wayne for CJ2K

    Already have regular starts in Cruz and Marshall with Maclin, Britt and M Williams for depth

    But in RB I only have McFadden, Morris, McGahee and Mendenhall and was hoping to take a gamble on CJ2K

    Whatcha reckon.

      1. Thanks for the feedback Christian, I understand what you mean but it’s very difficult with an 8-team league with most having pretty deep WRs and RBs being a high commodity

        I guess what I’m asking for is… what does Muntra think of the Rest of Season ranking for CJ2K compared to my RB3 McGahee (even though I know you love him a bit too much)

        Thanks guys :)
