Fantasy Football Week 2

So as I review my starting line-up for this weekend I'm wondering how wise it was to draft LT.  All the signs said he was done with injuries, and now a sprained ankle has him possibly sidelined this weekend.  So here's the situation I have.  In a leage with a starting roster of QB, 2RB, 3WR, TE, K, DST  I have to choose from below.  Before everyone mocks the draft, consider this is a 15 team league, and RBs flew off the board often and early so I ended up having to go for WRs to be my main point getters after I got LT.  Now that my first round pick Tomlinson is questionable this week I have to figure out how to stop up the bleeding.  Picking the last one after Mike Bell between Donald Brown and Correll Buckhalter.

Matt Ryan
Kyle Orton
LaDainian Tomlinson
Mike Bell
Donald Brown
Correll Buckhalter
Greg Jennings
Reggie Wayne
T.J. Houshmandzadeh
Torry Holt
Heath Miller
Todd Heap
John Carney
Titans D
Redskins D

I believe I'm going with Correll Buckhalter and Mike Bell, but wishing I had better options.  I still love the power of this team's receiving in a 15 team league, but hope it's enough this week to carry me through.  We shall see.

Caps Huet saves the season

So back in February I was wondering what Washington was doing when they brought on Cristobal Huet.  Kolzig is an excellent net-minder and I've always enjoyed watching him play.  He's at the end of a contract and probably close to the end of his time in Hockey as well.  So I figured the Caps were in the market for a new net-minder.  The decision to go with Huet has definitely payed them dividends.  With a stat line that looks like 34 W, 14 L, 3 T and a very competitive GAA of 2.32 he has really impressed the DC fan base.
I look forward to this post-season play.  Philadelphia poses some interesting problems for the Caps.  Their outstanding defensive play and hard hitting can stand up very well against the Caps sometimes single sided offense.  The ability of the Caps to prevent themselves in getting in short situations will help them as Philadelphia can have scoring issues in games played primarily at full strength.
Check back next time and we'll see if I can score some post-season hockey tickets.  I know the DC area has been waiting a long time for hockey playoffs in this area.
