Ask the Expert Question of the Week: Pick a player who will return from IR that you like.


Some big names have either recently returned from IR (Sammy Watkins) or may before the end of the season (Ameer Abdullah, Adrian Peterson, C.J. Anderson etc.). Pick one returning player (if any) that you believe will have fantasy value the rest of the way, and say why. 




I have slowly added Sammy Watkins wherever I can stash him. He played in about 50% of the snaps this week (went 3-80) and I expect bigger and better things for him (especially with Robert Woods faltering health wise late in the season). My money is on the sure thing-Watkins is playing versus the lottery ticket of some of the RBs who might make it back by week 15 or 16. Even if AP or CJ Anderson does make it back for a week 16 appearance-Are you really going to trust them with a roster spot their first week back? Not me. Go with Watkins and bet on his improvement in targets and catches. 












ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at http://www.fantasyindex.com/ with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.

Week 12 Results for FantasyFootballGuidebook.com

My leagues and weekly results/standings 
Notes: if in bold I won this week, most of the DM leagues are total points standings so I translate that into Wins and Losses by assuming if I beat half of the other teams in TP then I Won.

Big recovery with 4-1 in active leagues this week and 7-5 overall. Back to my winning ways!

Active Leagues (4-1 for the week, FFPC Main Event over)

FFPC $35 Satellite Classic    Win, 11-1, 1st place TP
SFB480                                    Win, 11-1, 1st, TP=2nd
FF Pro Forecast Mag             Win, 5-7, 7th, TP=6th (some tough losses)
Local League                          Win, 6-6, 6th, TP=6th
FFWC                                      Loss, 6-6, 7th, TP=6th (lost when Jordan Mathews left MNF game injured!)

No longer in contention 
FFPC Main Event                  Loss 6-5, 7th, TP=10th No Playoff

Active leagues record overall: 45-26 (.650)

Draft and Forget Leagues
FFPC Pros vs Joes                     Loss, 2-10, 12th (lost season)
FFPC #3763                              Loss, 4-8, 8th

Fantasy Index Auction          Win, 3-9, 9th
Fantasy Index Experts           Loss, 5-8, 4th


This week: 7-5 
Overall for Season: 85-70 

Of the 13 leagues five are "Expert" leagues either for fantasy football magazines (Pro Forecast Fantasy Football or Fantasy Football Index) or the Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC) Pros versus Joes contest or the Scott Fish Bowl 480 Invitational contest.


This year I am in "just" 13 leagues... six are "active" leagues involving day-to-day roster management (adds/drops, lineup changes etc). Seven leagues are "draft and forget" or Draft Master/Draft Expert Leagues which require no additional work as the teams I drafted are fixed (no adds/drops, trades/waivers etc) and the computer optimizes my lineup each week.

What one player are you most thankful for this fantasy season? Why?


I will give you one from each position: Matt Ryan, Melvin Gordon, Larry Fitzgerald, Jimmy Graham, Adam Vinatieri and MIN defense. All are in the top 5 at their respective positions and were available in the middle of the draft. One or two of these, combined with a reliable stud or two from the early rounds, gives your team a great playoff potential. I have all of them scattered across my fantasy teams. Just wish I had them all on one high stakes team!
