    Looking for advice/opinions on WR/TEs. So I lose Welker and Hernandez on bye this week (NE). Plus Andre Johnson (HOU) is out for a couple more. Going to roll with Roddy White, although he has sucked to date. Looking to do a couple of pickups. Looking at James Jones GB - like the match with Min and you got Rodgers throwing. Brandon Pettigrew DET -starting to connect with Stanford, but tough ATL matchup. Fred Davis WAS - like the CAR matchup and should get more targets with Cooley out, but Grossman sucks in end zone. And Owen Daniels HOU, decent matchup, getting targets since Johnson's out, but not connecting too well with Schaub. Leaning toward Davis and Pettigrew. Any thoughts? I have got to win this week.

    Should add I'm open to any last min pickups. In a fairly competetive league so all the top picks are gone. Got to be a situational pickup for the week.

    Is it possible that someone might translate this into English?

    Ha! Fortunately or unfortunately, I understood every word! Know it's probably too late, but I <3 Pettigrew. He's my starting TE, and has been awesome the past 3 weeks.

    Damn, when you said "FF's" my first thought was "front-engine-front-wheel-drive" which is abbreviated the same way, lol.

    Sorry Ljay. Here's your decoder ring.

    FF - Fantasy Football

    WR - Wide Reciever
    TE - Tight End
    These are the players that recieve the passes.

    NE, ATL, HOU, CAR, DET, WAS, GB - Abbreviations for various football teams

    On bye - the team these players are on is not playing this week

    End zone - 20 yards out from the opposite teams goal. Some quarterbacks do great at getting into the end zone, but have a tough time throwing a touch down. That's the case of Rex Grossmen QB for Washington.

    Pickups - trades you do from week to week to round out your line up

    Matchups - An evaluation of how a player or specific roll on team A, will do against the various defense strengths of team B.

    And when deciding what WR/TE's to go with, you want to understand how well the quarterback throw to the specfic roll, and the specific player.

    Hope that helps ;)

    And I knew shit about football till I got into FF. Now I love it...highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get into the sport.

    Careful with the shorthand. I remember the moment I realized BB didn't mean body building on other forums.

    In certain circles FF could also be mistaken. Don't be too surprised if you get mail with pictures of forearms. icon_eek.gif

    As OP, you should be able to change the topic title. Might be best to change it to "fantasy football fans" or something, though, since "FF" is a little, um, ambiguous.

    I'd go with Owen Daniels as one of your pickups, or w/e he has been connecting with Schaub all over the place today and finally seems to be at 100%. Only problem is Houston runs with two TE's so Dressen has been dividing the attention.

    Well Saints killing to Colts, so getting lots of points for Brees. Anyone see what happen to McFadden. Lost him in the him in the 1st quarter of the Oak vs KC game...No wonder KC shut them out!!! All in all,

    It was great, KC defense scored me 40 points!! Unfortunately my opponent had Aaron Rodgers AND Greg Jennings.....needless to say the two of them scored enough to destroy the rest of my team. Damn it Minnesota!

    Min vs GB....you were screwed from the get go.

    If Brees throws 4 more TDs, I might actually win....
