PICKIN’ WINNERS: Wild Card Weekend

[NOTE: Yes, I’m taking a vacation from the site this week, but I still wanted to post my picks for the NFL playoffs. Your regularly scheduled columns will return next week.]

Posting a picks column on a weekday is dangerous. With 32 NFL teams all playing games with injury reports, suspensions and who will start at quarterback, you really need to wait until the last minute to choose wisely. No week is peppered with more question marks than Week 17, when some teams barely even bother to show up. So I revisited my picks on Sunday morning and made a couple of key changes.

SIMON SAYS: EXTRA EDITION (1/4)

Andray Blatche: You came out in the newspaper and stated that the reason your game has gone to sh-t is because you are affected by the trade rumors surrounding your name. WHY? What player has not been mentioned in trade rumors during their career? How can you take that so personally? You broke out when given the opportunity last season. You put up impressive numbers. Fantasy players, such as myself, who looked so genius in picking you up midseason last year, are truly disappointed in your play, based on where you were drafted this season. If anybody wants to trade for you, it’s because you have that damn much potential and you are a good fit for their team. SUCK IT UP and play your game, because only 25 percent of all trades come to fruition and you are screwing with your team’s playoff possibilities. Well, it is the Wizards, but still.

HUSTLE POINTS (1/3)

We tried a little experiment and moved the Hoops Help Chat to Noon ET yesterday, Sunday, and it didn’t work out. I only had a couple people, which is something I am not used to… Also not good for the ego. So we are going to try moving it back to 11:30 am ET, 8:30 am PT to accommodate everyone’s schedule and see what happens. There will be no chat next Monday, but join us back for the chat on January 17 at 11:30 ET. I will be able to answer all your burning questions. In the meantime, feel free to tweet and e-mail as always. CLCIK HERE FOR MORE

HOOPS HELP CHAT: Week 11 – NEW TIME! SUN. @ 12ET/9PT

Seems like people were having a tough time making the Monday noon/9am time for the Hoops Help Chat. That’s why we’ve moved it to Sunday. Now you those of you who have early lineup deadlines, like in Yahoo! leagues, can get advice in plenty of time to set your lineup. More good news…Si will be back at the helm this week. So drop by at the new time to ask him your Player A vs. Player B questions, as well as injury and trade stuff. Si will open up the chat room in advance for those who need to ask and run. Just click on the link below to access the chat room…

SIMON SAYS (12/31)

If you own Brandon Roy, it is surely a terrible thing for you right now. Those of you who own LaMarcus Aldridge should be pleased, however, as his numbers are up dramatically during the combo guard’s absence… Should auld aqcuaintance be forgot? Not if he’s Rajon Rondo. He should be back soon, especially with the injury to Kevin Garnett… Get well soon, Dirk Nowitzki…  You guys have gotta be looking at Gary Neal in bigger leagues. With a full squad yesterday, San Antonio still found 20+ minutes for him and he scored over 20 points… Jason Richardson may be stifled in Orlando’s offense, considering all the weaponry at hand… HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY!
