Tate Raped..Again. And Again. (Week 3 Recap)

By Muntradamus

BEAST DOME NATION.

Week 4 Rankings coming out Wednesday Morning.

I had a perfect title for this weeks article.  Until I was left with no choice after that call on Monday Night Football.  Below is an entertaining video with how bad these replacements Refs have been.  Hopefully the real refs come back so bad calls do not effect your fantasy football players.  Because these refs are ruining the game.  I wish there was a compilation on YouTube, but here is a classic one on just how bad they have been.

 

For those that are new to BEAST DOME.  

Week 1 recap: (Tate Rape) – Owners started Ben Tate he did nothing. Because of Foster’s late questionable.
Week 2 recap: (Tate Raped..Again) – Owners benched Tate after Foster apperared healthy.  Tate scored 2 TDs.
Week 3 recap : (Tate Raped..Again. Again) – The infamous Monday Night Football Game.

  1. Hi. Can I have your thoughts on Steven Jackson’s value? His point production, schedule, and bum team are making think I should trade him. Also, I’m thinking of trying to sell high on A. Brown. to Bradshaw owner. What level wr or rb can I get in return? Thanks.

  2. Hey Munt,

    Your advice is golden! Just wanted to see if I would be giving up too much on this trade?

    Alfred Morris & Scott Chandler for CEDRIC BENSON?

    Thanks again!!

    1. If you are getting Cedric Benson you are the clear winner.

      Ced Ben is the man in that high scoring offense. He will clean up easy TDs all season.

  3. I got offerred Hernandez & Garcon for Mathews & Bennett (my only TE right now, Davis Myers & Chandler available on ww)(he has Eli & Graham already) not something I’m jumping in but… he also has my foster backup & j-rodgers, I really need a WR and was hoping to use cj0k as a chip but so far can only get M.Williams… Idk if he wants him. I can also give up hunter, lafell, Spiller/ f-jax (have a waiver out to claim Hawkins & drop hartline)i could also holdto my guys… I value ur advice

    1. Thanks GB

      i would decline the first trade. Mathews is the best player in the deal, nothing wrong with Bennett yet.

      Figure out a way to get JacQuizz without giving up a starter on your roster. He will be worth it in the long run, starting this week.

  4. What’s happening Munt? Hopefully all is well. Can I get your thoughts on Marques Colston I just can’t figure this guy out, I know you said he’s over due but do you still feel the same way?

    1. You will read about him in the Week 4 Trade Market.

      His value could not be any lower, he is still the man in New Orleans right up there with Graham. That foot is bothering him, he will be fine.

  5. Trying to get rid of ChrisJohnson. Worth it to trade straight up for benson or morris? I also have Mendenhall, Jacquizz, and Mcgahee

      1. I was thinking Rodgers but I was worried about the fact he’s basically the back up right now behind turner right ? Would he be able to put up like 15 pts a game roughly ?

  6. Wasup Munt,

    About Ryan Williams…… All the experts are saying that he is a much better player than wells and that it was expected that he would take over the starting job eventually.

    I am would like to know why you are so down on Ryan Williams.

    BTW I have Andre Brown I want to trade him for Ryan Williams with the Bradshaw owner.

    Looks like a good trade to me what do you think?

    Thx

    1. Skill great question.

      The reason I do not like Williams is a lot of reasons.

      1) He continues to fumble in crucial situations.
      2) He says he is worried about his bad knee every time he runs.
      3) Besides one long run in kill clock mode, he really has not done anything. Besides one good preseason quarter against Oakland.
      4) Beanie Wells was a stud last season who had 3 TDs in one game. 100 Yards came easy against easy opponents.
      5) The Cardinals offense is not that great in the 1st place, not a lot of TDs.
      6) Beanie Wells is the better RB when healthy. Beanie has yet to be healthy this season. As soon as that trend reverses the coaches will be reminded why they fed him like a workhorse.

      Short-Term that’s a good trade until Beanie is healthy.

  7. I did an auction league this year for the 1st time. I got both foster and rice, the league also has an Offensive flex which a 2nd QB can be played. There r 2 RB slots. In the fold I Am sitting on d brown, J Rodgers, Mendenhall, my QBs are Peyton, Palmer & Sammy B. I received a trade offer to acquire Brees and Doug martin. Ihave to give up rice & Torrey smith, my wr are solid in Wallace, Bowe & Colston. That is it & little on the ww. We start 3 WRs or 2 wr/2te. & I would have to play celek & Rudolph on my WR bye weeks, I think the trade is fair, but the real Q is do I take it? This guy can do it cause he drAfted brees & Brady. This is a half pt ppr league. I almost think keeping my big 2, rotating the beat qb matchup & shuffle jaquizz, brown & mendy and maybe Palmer will have a lot of games like last week. Your advice?

      1. Started thinking I might be able to swingg a trade, giving up rice, Palmer for Floyd-SD, stafford & either steven Jackson or Chris Johnson

    1. None at all.

      The Jets offense can barely support one WR when Keller is healthy. With Hill an option, and Sanchez less trustworthy than most QBs. I would stay away from everyone besides Holmes.
