Steve Slaton listed among the always-start studs. Seriously? I particularly like that the WW article beginning with "Things can't get any worse for Steve Slaton owners." can be found just down the page from the list declaring Slaton as a stud.

I've never thought this start/bench had any real credibility, for a number of reasons, but come on... at least make it look respectable.

I know! I love it how they have the start/bench articles and then look at the projections and they state the opposite information. Come on!

Seriously. Why openly bash a respected contributor to this site? It's one guys' opinion who, happens to be a different person from Doug's who wrote the waiver wire article. It's for entertainment purposes anyways, not law. If you don't like the info they have, don't read it.

IBTM.

This Start/Bench list is incomplete and poorly put together, week in week out (no opinion on Ronnie this week? Flacco? LT2? Addai? Brandon Marshall? John Carlson?. . . ) Heck, I've seen it posted with the previous week's matchups still listed.

I can't speak for others, but I'm not bashing anyone. Rather, I'm pointing out that what could be a valuable service/resource for readers of this site seldom is. The idea being that perhaps the weekly Start/Bench list can be improved.

The only way you could improve Ron Anish is if you put scars all over his face, so the rest of us could have a chance with the women.

In which case this thread belongs here:

if you have issue with the tank, there's your forum for it.

I pointed out a month or so ago that "greg Jennings is no longer 'stud' material" in a polite message in that forum.

The next week, Jennings no longer appeared on the 'stud' list. Anish does pay attention to feedback and probably just made an error on Slaton here.

Yea, probably an error.

Gotta give it up to him, it's not easy to proclaim who's a stud and who's not to a tank full of sharks the majority of whom are biased towards the players they own on their fantasy teams. :wink:

This belongs in article feedback.

And I think reports of Steve Slaton's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Moats performed against the worst run defense in the NFL. Slaton had one carry.

I'm not bashing anyone, but the size of your avatar can be improved.

I hate to jump in and play bad cop as well, but goro is right. the article contradicts itself and having something like that as a featured article for FS starts to speak volumes on the quality of info that FS is providing.

Having Slaton listed as a ASYS, but starting the same article with "things can't get any worse for Slaton" is a contradictory statement, plain and simple. I'm not picking on R.Anish....I'd call out any contributor on any fantasy site if they did the same thing.

If this type of article bothers someone why not start their own? I'm sure we can find issues with any article to complain about with any projections.
