I didn't think the passing of Steve Jobs would affect me in any real way.  It was a little sudden but the writing had been on the wall for some time with his weight loss and known health battles.  I never knew the man personally so I would have guessed it would have been just another news story to me.  Instead, it brought me back to the epoch of the modern computer and made me think back to those days of continuous struggle for Apple, their brand, how they positioned themselves, the neat little inventions Steve Jobs and co. created for the world and their unwavering fortitude to stick with it.

We’ve reached the first bye week installment of who has the most value on the line for each game. Bye weeks are a foghorn like signal to managers that the season is no longer fresh. We’ve reached a point where players need to show us something in order to stay in our lineups once and for all. Each game has one player that has a massive amount of value hinging on game five. Here’s Week 5's hopeful thirteen.

Don't look now but the Redskins are 1st in the NFC East and the Eagles are last. This is a tough game for the Eagles. On the road, against a division rival that has done nothing but win, with doubt creeping into the Eagles psyche. Yes the Eagles will play hard and yes, they'll play well. But the Redskins have a swagger about them and the competition Mike Shanahan has created between his three runningbacks will push the Redskins over the Eagles.

Players selected in the first few rounds of the fantasy draft have disappointed while late flier picks have moved up the charts for next season’s rankings.

I think people under estimate how truly poor the Packers secondary has played. You'd never know it with Aaron Rodgers and friends scoring at will but it's a much bigger hole for the Packers than many want to admit. I know this is going to sound so ridiculous that whatever your favorite beverage you're currently consuming is about to come out your nose (fair warning) but Christian Ponder is going to pick the Packers apart and Adrian Peterson will run through them. I'll give you a moment to clean up.

OK, I’ll freely admit that Week 6 was not exactly the best work I’ve ever done, but every once in a while you just have a bumpy week, so I stand before you yet again, beaten but unbowed, ready to make my recommendations for this week. Remember, this is the third of the bye weeks and it’s leaving a heckuva hole, so don’t go starting any players from the Giants, Eagles, Bills, Patriots, Bengals, or 49ers. No Jason Pierre-Paul, no Patrick Willis, no George Wilson…like I said, HOLE.

Tampa Bay and Chicago will rival New Orleans and Indianapolis in passing yards as all teams should post big numbers in the air while Oakland, Atlanta and Pittsburgh will keep it on the ground and have plenty of success doing so.

We finally have an NFL trading deadline where some major deals have been made that will have an immediate impact on the fantasy community! The Broncos moved one of last season's top pass catchers and the Raiders made a bold move to keep their season going in a positive direction by trading for a "retired" quarterback. Some running backs are hurting, so we examine their backups. As usual, a slew of wideouts get a mention this week and we top off this week with a tight end that is worth a look. Plenty for everyone in this week's version.

This week’s fantasy talent pool is noticeably thinner, and that coupled with the general madness that is any week in an IDP league (don’t fight it, embrace it, and then kill it while it’s sleeping) has led to quite a few new faces being mentioned this week. Gonna be a wild one kiddies. To help you be one of the inmates that run the asylum here’s a look at my Top 30 defensive linemen, linebackers, and defensive backs for Week Seven of the 2011 season in IDP leagues.

We’re six weeks into the 2011 season, and between the injuries that continue to mount and the byes now being in full swing (The upcoming week will see a slew of IDP studs sidelined by siesta) IDP waiver wires are getting thinner and thinner. That’s OK though, I enjoy kicking over rocks, because you never know what you just might find. With that in mind here are some players that should be available on many IDP waiver wires that are worth targeting as we head into Week 7.

Now that injuries are mounting up and we’re in the middle of seven straight bye weeks, shrewd waiver wire moves are as important as ever. While injuries can’t be avoided, picking up and passing on the right waiver wire candidates certainly can help get your team back on the right track. Wiith guys like Felix Jones going down and Brandon Lloyd being traded, here’s my take on the players who’ll be the hot waiver wire targets this week.

Week 8 offers 13 games of NFL competition offering us 13 specific player value movements. Week 8 is the midway point of the season. With that in mind you’ll notice that the majority of these players have been disappointments and have run out of rope to work with. They need to prove their worth here or hit the bricks.

Keep Joseph Addai on the bench, give Delone Carter an entire game. Carter is the type of runner that will get better with more carries as the game goes on. He's a bruiser back with a low center of gravity and a decent initial burst. Not that the Colts would ever do this but give Delone Carter 25+ carries in a game and you'll see what I mean. The Colts possibly have their running back of the future now, they just don't know it yet.

Well, I decided that rather than go back and critique myself over last week’s recommendations I’d just brain myself with a bat (which accomplishes roughly the same thing), and now that I’ve regained consciousness it’s time for a one-eyed look at Week 8. Remember, this is the fourth of the bye weeks, so if you roll out any players from the Falcons, Bears, Packers, Jets, Raiders, or Buccaneers I’m guessing you’ll probably be pretty disappointed by the results.
