I’m a QB, damn it!: So, Joe Flacco is less than thrilled about lining up in the wildcat formation. He couldn’t even be bothered to block on one of the plays, which makes me wonder how long it’ll take before some angry defensive back absolutely levels Flacco the next time the Ravens deceide to run a play out of the wildcat. Anyhow, Flacco’s already low fantasy value will get even lower if Tyrod Taylor starts getting a handful of reps each week. Chances are you aren’t starting Flacco in your league anyway, but if you are, I’d love to know why.
Weeden likely starting Week 13: Jason Campbell sustained a concussion in Cleveland’s Week 12 home loss to the Steelers, so Rob Chudzinski announced in his Monday morning press conference that Brandon Weeden is likely to start Week 13 against the Jaguars at home. Suddenly, brown paper bags big enough to fit over the heads of fans are going up in price in Northeast Ohio. This means bad things for Josh Gordon’s fantasy value. If you watched yesterday’s Cleveland-Pittsburgh game, you could see Weeden’s entrance deflated the stadium and the team’s morale. Gordon is coming off a monster performance, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets held in check this time around.
Have a seat: Stevan Ridley’s first-quarter fumble was the catalyst that set off an early avalanche of Denver points on Sunday night. Think Bill Belichick minded? Yeah, just a bit — to the point where Ridley did not play another snap during New England’s improbable comeback win. Ridley has made an effort to stop fumbling the ball in recent weeks, and the Pats seem to have taken the tough love approach. This is something which should terrify Ridley owners in a big way — how would you like to be starting him during your fantasy playoffs and have your season come to a premature end because you got zero production from him when he got benched again after coughing it up? If you have other feasible RB options, you might want to think really hard about using them over Ridley during playoff time.
