Hatty's Afternoon Delight

We are back for another round of Hatty's Afternoon Delight. Sorry for the day off yesterday but sometimes I get tied up and cannot get to it but I will do my best to keep those occurrences to a minimum. A lot of good news flowing around the league. I will be recapping some things that happened yesterday that most everyone knows about now in this session as well.

Cadillac "Coup De Ville" Williams
It looks as thought the Bucs have activated Williams and intend on him seeing action as soon as this week. The release of Michael Bennett indicates that Williams at the least will be the 3rd option out of the backfield. With current injuries to Graham and Dunn makes Williams worth taking a shot on for the second half of the season. Williams was a premier back in his prime and Gruden loves to use RB by committee so as long as Graham and Dunn are dinged up expect Cadillac to get some looks.

Matt Hasslebeck
Hassy is back for Week 11 after missing five weeks. Owners of any Seattle receiver and Julius Jones have to be happy to hear this as it has to improve the terrible Seattle offense to some degree. Hasslebeck seemed to take his time getting back so hopefully he will not have any lingering effects other than rust. If you have better options for Week 11 hold off on throwing Hassy back into the lineup until we see if he is the Hasselbeck we all remember.

Action Jackson
Or perhaps he should be call inactive Jackson after this season. Steven Jackson owners will be glad to hear that he made it back to practice on Wednesday which is the first sign of life for the first rounder. The Rams are a different offense when Jackson is in the game which is good news for Donnie Avery and Torry Holt owners but I would not bank on Jackson making it to the end of the year without more time on the injury report. If you are not in a dynasty league and have the ability to move Jackson for a good RB on a mid tiered team fighting for the playoffs, now is the time to do it. You can likely get a RB and WR for Jackson.

BGE and the Pats
BGE (for those unsure of who this is please check the player spotlight from Tuesday) looks to continue to start against the Jets on Thursday night with Sammy Morris being listed as questionable. I expect that as long as BGE continues at his current pace that the Pats will be in no rush to bring him back. Either way he has been the most effective goal line back for the Pats and should continue to see looks even when Morris returns.

Josh Morgan
Another featured player on the site this year will be our for Week 11. It seems every time Morgan has a good game he misses the following week. Either way Morgan is a tier 3 or 4 receiver at best and, with bye weeks out of the way, should only be used in case an injury hurts you later in the season.

Dynasty League Update
For those who are in dynasty leagues and are looking to next year Rotoworld had a nice blurb on Derrick Ward's value for the future. He is worth stashing on your bench after the year he has had, considering some team will be sure to have him on their roster for next year if the Giants decide to let him go.

Da Broncos
Don't take offense Bears fans! In an effort to provide some relief for their absolutely obliterated running game the Broncos have brought back Tatum Bell who could start seeing carries this week. Payton Hillis is still listed as the starter but bell had some great years in Denver so if you have been playing the Broncos RB train this year, nab Bell now as he knows the offense and has the motivation to prove he is still a capable. back.

That is all for today. Email me with any questions on players, lineups, trade advice, playoff needs or anything else to help you win in Week 11. Most league have 4 weeks or less before the playoffs so each week is pivotal whether you are locked into a playoff spot of you are trying to sneak in. For all you dynasty owners who have had an off year and are planning for next year, be sure to check out your wire for Tom Brady in the case that someone dropped him. He may be good again or he may not but it is worth a roster spot to see.
