National Football League, we’ve got a lot of problems with you, and now you’re going to hear about it. In no particular order, when did the NFC North become the new AFC South? With the NFC East being a pretty good division again, does that mean I have to start wearing my 90’s flannel shirts? And should we all get concussions? Afterall, according to you, it’s not just a concussion, it’s a cancussion. Why is it, that amidst your “Salute to Service” Sunday, that you don’t mention that the taxpayers fund all the lavish patriotism we see every Sunday? What is a catch? It’s like the only thing that’s ever stayed a controversy in football since I was a kid. That, and John Elway probably being a secret horse in disguise. In fact, here was the first official NFL rules committee meeting to define what exactly a catch was. But most of all (just in the context of yesterday, because why trap yourself, ya know?), I’m so confused on how the Seahawks actually won. (Note: It’s weird to watch a game where you end up screaming in agony when anything good happens for either team.) Admittedly, I’m not so much confused on how they actually won, that’s pretty straightforward; it was some combination of an overrated New England defense getting exposed, mixed with big nights from Russell Wilson (25/37, 348 YDS, 9.4 AVG, 3 TD, 124.6 RTG and 3 CAR, 6 YDS) and C.J. Prosise (17 CAR, 66 YDS, 3.9 AVG, 10 LONG and 7 REC, 87 YDS, 12.4 AVG, 38 LONG, 7 TGTS). But how the Seahawks could win in such a karmaic (word?) fashion… I mean, talk about sh*tty calls for the last four plays of the game, almost seems familiar. Almost like it’s happened before… And I’m sure the Boston media will have a field day talking about how the “non-call” on Gronk was a crime against humanity, a genocide they’ll say! Well, if he didn’t do such a great job blocking into the endzone on a run play to Blount that should have been the call, they might have had a case. In the mean time, I wouldn’t worry to much about Patriots “nation” forming a protest to go against the result, mainly because they probably think “genocide” has something to do with the Jets

 

Jay Ajayi19 CAR, 79 YDS, 40 LONG and 1 REC, 1 YDS, 1 TGTS. So not only do the Chargers give up 31 points in a dumb loss, but they manage to give them up all to Not-Ajayi. Figures.

Antonio Brown14 REC, 154 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 1 TD, 44 LONG, 18 TGTS and 1 CAR, -10 YDS. This is actually a deleted scene from the Matrix trilogy you just watched.

Blake Bortles32/49, 265 YDS, 5.4 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 84.1 RTG and 3 CAR, 11 YDS, 3.7 AVG, 11 LONG. Can they seriously not do better than Blake Bortles? I mean, I might be in throwing shape if Bortles is the litmus test.

Kenny Britt7 REC, 109 YDS, 15.6 AVG, 46 LONG, 10 TGTS. So I’m guessing that Revis Island (or expressway at this point) is on a whole bunch of milk cartons throughout the tri-state area starting today, right?

Dez Bryant – 6 REC, 116 YDS, 19.3 AVG, 1 TD, 50 LONG, 9 TGTS. That play looked like total sh*t right up until Bryant crossed the goal line. Also, Bryant didn’t hold onto the ball until he got back to the bench, so I’m not even sure that counts as a completion.

Randall Cobb4 REC, 31 YDS, 7.8 AVG, 11 LONG, 8 TGTS. Rampage is a feeling, right?

Brandin Cooks3 REC, 98 YDS, 32.7 AVG, 1 TD, 37 LONG, 5 TGTS. Too Many Brandin Cooks in the kitchen!

Ezekiel Elliott21 CAR, 114 YDS, 5.4 AVG, 2 TD, 32 LONG and 2 REC, 95 YDS, 47.5 AVG, 1 TD, 83 LONG, 2 TGTS. Only four years until his bones turn to dust, as is the Cowboys way. Oh, did you also know that Elliot is the first running back this season to hit the 1000 yard mark? He’s also first in all purpose yards, and, not to outdo himself with so many top finishes, he’s now Public Enemy #1 to NFL investigators! Odd, seems more like a job for Republican Congressional members. Look, I’m not really an Alfred Morris fan, and I’ve advised that this is one handcuff that isn’t terribly necessary, but if you look at how Ballghazi and Tom Brady ended up, it’s probably prescient to consider Morris a waiver target if available.

Jay Cutler16/30, 182 YDS, 6.1 AVG, 1 TD, 2 INT, 55.1 RTG and 1 CAR, 7 YDS, 1 FUM. Jay Cutler, doing his personal best to solidify his feast-or-famine reputation. Also known as the “Brian Hoyer scale”.

Rob Gronkowski3 REC, 56 YDS, 26 LONG, 6 TGTS. Gronk strikes me as the kind of person that if he was a woman, he’d wipe back to front.

DeAndre Hopkins5 REC, 48 YDS, 9.6 AVG, 16 LONG, 13 TGTS. Stephen Anderson and Ryan Griffin had the only receiving touchdowns, with a combined 14 yards in receiving. I want to let that sink in for a moment, mainly because misery loves company.

Jordan Howard15 CAR, 100 YDS, 6.7 AVG, 15 LONG. The Chicago Bears running game, also referred to as: What if I want to die by mixed liquors?, took another potential blow with Howard suffering an ankle/Achilles injury yesterday. There are some mixed reports on if this is true or not, but he did play until breaking the 100 yard threshold before ending the game on the sidelines…

Carlos Hyde13 CAR, 14 YDS, 1.1 AVG, 5 LONG. Hyde was extremely proficient at getting those two or three yard gains on third downs yesterday. Of course, they were on all 3rd and 14’s, but still, good for him.

Julio Jones10 REC, 135 YDS, 13.5 AVG, 29 LONG, 16 TGTSMatt Ryan can only climax while listening to “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”.

Case Keenum17/30, 165 YDS, 5.5 AVG, 72.2 RTG and 5 CAR, 11 YDS, 2.2 AVG, 7 LONG. Case Keenum doesn’t exactly march down the field like other quarterbacks do. Prancing, perhaps? Skipping? Either would work. Granted, the same people defending Trevor Siemian starting over Paxton Lynch are probably the same clamoring for Jared Goff. I’d just prefer Kyle Orton in either situation, honestly. Because some men just want to watch the world burn.

Ryan Mathews19 CAR, 109 YDS, 5.7 AVG, 2 TD, 21 LONG and 2 REC, 30 YDS, 15.0 AVG, 20 LONG, 2 TGTS. It would appear that the Falcons’ run defense is a work in progress… In terms what to expect going forward since Wendell Smallwood (13 CAR, 70 YDS, 19 LONG) makes this situation… murky, I’d probably expect less of what happened yesterday. It’s clear that not much has changed since the beginning of the season with Mathews, he’s an average RB2 with a low ceiling, fumble issues, and minimal PPR value, with a secondary running back that has a presence and siphons snaps. So it’s basically in between the Bengals and Vikings in terms of fantasy football annoyance.

Jerick McKinnon6 CAR, 16 YDS, 2.7 AVG, 13 LONG and 3 REC, 17 YDS, 5.7 AVG, 12 LONG, 4 TGTS. So, did it just take the Vikings a few games to realize how sh*tty they should actually be with all these injuries? Granted, this is more a career thing with McKinnon specifically, but I’ve never seen a team delay their inevitable landing spot for so long without anyone noticing.

Ty Montgomery2 REC, 11 YDS, 5.5 AVG, 8 LONG, 2 TGTS and 3 CAR, 9 YDS, 3.0 AVG, 5 LONG. I think you need to go home and stop drinking McCarthy. Not necessarily in that order.

DeMarco Murray17 CAR, 123 YDS, 7.2 AVG, 1 TD and 2 REC, 33 YDS, 16.5 AVG, 35 LONG, 3 TGTS. I’m really obnoxiously proud of myself for drafting DeMarco Murray this year. And all of you should be too.

Cam Newton23/38, 261 YDS, 6.9 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 78.9 RTG and 12 CAR, 54 YDS, 4.5 AVG, 1 TD, 28 LONG. Is President Trump going to announce a government program to inoculate children against Cam Newtonism? Asking for a friend. (Also, Cam’s probably wondering how he can get calls like Tom Brady does as I’m watching this SNF game.)

Bryce Petty19/32, 163 YDS, 5.1 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 70.2 RTG. Because the Jets are ♪♪ free, free fallin’ ♪♪. (Quick scouting report: Dude has got an arm. Not much else. So he’s basically Kevin Kolb. So, you know, you do you maaaan.)

Dak Prescott22/32, 319 YDS, 10.0 AVG, 2 TD, 121.7 RTG. How many donuts does Tony Romo eat on the sidelines at this point?

Bilal Powell4 CAR, 37 YDS, 9.3 AVG, 17 LONG and 7 REC, 52 YDS, 7.4 AVG, 1 TD, 11 LONG, 7 TGTS. Bilal Powell really doesn’t get enough credit for being a pretty solid PPR option. Though, it might be due to the fact that his name’s “Bilal”…

Jordan Reed2 REC, 41 YDS, 20.5 AVG, 25 LONG, 4 TGTS. Dear Jordan Reed, You’re a pretty good tight end, so please try not to damage your brain too much. Also, you would probably look better without that pencil mustache there, you know, unless that facial hair helps to protect your brain, in which case, carry on. Sincerely, me.

Philip Rivers23/44, 326 YDS, 3 TD, 4 INT, 7.4 AVG, 61.4 RTG. Dear Mary, did you know that I hailed you? I’m thinking that’s a no… more like A River Runs Through… My Heart, amiright folks?

Aaron Rodgers31/51, 371 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT, 79.8 RTG and 3 CAR, 27 YDS, 9.0 AVG, 1 TD, 20 LONG. The Packers have clearly decided that since the nation has reverted to the 80’s, they will too. Is Randy Wright still around? Lynn Dickey?

Ben Roethlisberger37/46, 408 YDS, 8.9 AVG, 3 TD, 125.4 RTG and 1 CAR, 1 YDS. The Steelers are an odd team for me. Besides Ben HUR DUR McRapey, I don’t dislike them, but I still enjoy it when they lose.

Trevor Siemian25/40, 258 YDS, 6.4 AVG, 2 TD, 2 ING, 76.9 RTG and 6 CAR, 5 YDS, 0.8 AVG, 3 LONG. I haven’t seen Siemian perform this terribly since the invention of the birth control pill…

Alex Smith25/38, 178 YDS, 4.7 AVG, 1 INT, 65.5 RTG and 4 CAR, 13 YDS, 3.3 AVG, 6 LONG. Well, I was planing to make fun of Ted Ginn Jr. (one of my favorite pastimes). However, Alex Smith.

Spencer Ware13 CAR, 61 YDS, 4.7 AVG, 12 LONG and 3 REC, 11 YDS, 3.7 AVG, 5 LONG, 3 TGTS. Are the Chiefs a great team or a terrible team? I can never tell.

Carson Wentz25/36, 231 YDS, 6.4 AVG, 86.7 RTG and 4 CAR, 10 YDS, 2.5 AVG, 13 LONG, 1 FUM. Now Eagles fans get to see what the 00-04 Eagles would have looked like without a ridiculously good quarterback. Not to mention that the Eagles have beaten pre-defenestrate Vikings, pre-defenestrate Steelers, and just beat the Falcons. Which means a Falcons season meltdown is imminent. Because science.

Jameis Winston23/33, 312 YDS, 9.5 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 107.1 RTG. Bears went with their usual bend, break, and immolate approach on defense, and it worked about as well as they planned for.

 

 

Final Thought

If you can’t be happy for winning a 9-6 game, then there’s nothing worth being happy for in this world.

    Ugh I need 16 points from either J-Hill or Gio-B. Who would you deploy to go boom?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: I would create a running back out of the two. Gio Hill. Jeremy Bernard? Probably Hill, but I’m going to assume they both get 8 points each tonight. Because fantasy football.

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Yeah, maybe Hill gets a couple of goal line TD runs. Seriously though, 16 would be so doable if they were just one guy!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Cram It: That’s the dream!

  2. Sano Chance in Hell says:
    (link)

    PPR league, I can start 3 WRs and a flex, but need an upgrade at RB. Which 1 or 2 of these guys would you be most willing to trade (selling high, upcoming schedule, etc.)?

    Julio Jones, AJ Green, Larry Fitzgerald, Tyrell Williams, Michael Thomas, Donte Moncrief

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Sano Chance in Hell: I’d try to sell Fitz and Williams, see if that nets you something from a WR needy team.

  3. Timbo says:
    (link)

    Ahoy jay! I need some good fantasy mojo on my side my team has been in a funk at the end of MNF tonight i will have lost two in a row & will be at 6-4. Lol I’m down 33 & i have hill left & he has Rashad Jennings.

    Crazy as we head to this week (week 11) it’s crunch time next week is thanksgiving!

    That being said as it’s crunch I’m thinking of trimming the fat of my team.

    Here’s my team

    QB: matt Ryan (week 11 bye)

    RB1: DJ
    RB2: Gordon (week 11 bye)

    WR1: Hopkins (gross)
    WR2: dez Bryant
    WR3: Doug Baldwin

    TE: Rudolph

    Flex: I have hill here but week 11 he’s my WR2

    D/St Pats

    Kicker: Crosby

    Bench: moncrief, sanders (bye), Sterling Shepard, Chris hogan, Witten, Andre Ellington (DJ cuff), farrow (Gordon cuff), Bibbs (bye),

    IR; Watkins

    First order of bizz dropping Chargers D for a week 11 QB:
    My first priority will be dak Prescott

    If I don’t get Dak other QBs available are
    – Tyrod Taylor (at cincy)

    – the cutler (@ Giants / cutler flunked in a cake matchup Sunday vs Bucs)

    – kaepernick (hosting Pats, reasoning pats D doesn’t look hot, russel Wilson had a strong fantasy day vs pats D not saying kaepernick is wilson but something I thought about)

    2.) next order of bizz roll with Pats D ROS (they face (at SF, at jets, vs Rams, vs Ravens, at broncos at vs jets.)

    Available D/st’s:

    – Bucs D (at KC)

    – Dolphins D (at Rams)

    – Titans D (at Indy)

    – Giants D (vs Bears/ yeah look what Bucs D did to cutler week 10)

    – raiders D (week 11 MNF hosting Texans)

    If I keep Pats D I’m thinking hanging onto them ROS unless they stink vs SF, these above mentioned named leaning on streamers unless you like any of them ROS?

    3.) hang onto or drop Chris hogan?
    If I drop hogan here are available WRs:
    – Taylor Gabriel

    – Robert woods

    – Seth Roberts

    – Tajae sharpe

    – davante Parker

    – Jeremy kerely

    – Michael Floyd

    – Kendal Wright

    – Eli Rogers

    – perriman

    Or drop hogan for best avail RB?

    – Powell

    – Damien Williams

    – Smallwood

    – Deandre Washington

    – Dwayne Washington

    – Abdullah? I know he’s on IR but is he coming back?

    That should do it! Thanks & have a great day!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Timbo: Yo Timbo, I’d try and pick up Powell there if this is a PPR league, if not, I might try to take a high risk high reward receiver like Floyd and see how that develops.

      Good luck man, don’t forget, Hill may go ballistic and Jennings could fumble 11 times. Totally could happen.

      • Timbo says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        I may try for Powell it’s .5 ppr league . If not I may be looking at Floyd , do you agree with me cutting bait with hogan?

        Thoughts on the defense?

        Just got a notification that thanksgiving week Sunday nov 27 originally pats were sched to face jets on SNF now SNF on 11/27 will be broncos hosting chiefs

        Thanks again

        • Timbo says:
          (link)

          @Timbo:

          Also of course I want to win tonight but if I lose I want to have a good amount of points for tie breakers on Points for.

          Better shot at a Monday night miracle Sterling Shepard (Cruz is out) or hill.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Timbo: yeah, you can cut bait on Hogan I think. The Pats D is okay, not great. I would stream with some trusted DST rankings.

          • Timbo says:
            (link)

            @Jay:

            Thanks again , I’ll look to your week 11 rankings to see who to stream

            • Jay

              @Timbo: sounds good!

  4. Dave says:
    (link)

    Of course I played Zeke this week (I play the highest scoring player every week it seems), so I’m down 28 points (PPR) having Dalton and Eifert with my opponent having AJ Green. What are the chances my season is saved? Like 2 percent right? I’m just gonna start drinking now.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dave: I’d say maybe 10%. There is a chance that Dalton goes off with everyone except Green. Keep hope alive! (But do start drinking. I could use the company!)

  5. Josh says:

    Breaking News: this just in:

    Alshon Jeffery suspended 4 games for PED’s

    lol and to think I was just going to trade FOR Alshon. I mean I prob still could get him for cheap now since he’s done for the fantasy reg season, he should be back round 1 or round 2 of Fantasy playoffs.

    With no Alshon is there a ball catcher who’s value this will benefit in chi town? Meredith? Zach Miller ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Josh: Crazy. Yeah, close call there. I think it’s the Meredith and Miller show at this point. More Meredith I think. (Along with White, whenever he decides to show up.)

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:

        @Jay: royal can’t help but be helped too at least till white gets back.

  6. bn says:
    (link)

    Drop any of these guys in ppr league for meridith, garçon, floyd, royal

    jj nelson, corey coleman, shephard, robert woods. Can only keep 1 player from team and looks like coleman over shephard?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @bn: Coleman over Shephard is fine. I would probably drop Woods for Meridith at this point.

    #lolBears on Alshon Jeffrey

  8. What's a Drexl? says:
    (link)

    as yr gif above clearly shows the call would’ve been against gronk, he clearly ran right into the DB and shoved him to the ground.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: I completely agree. He essentially tackled him with a push off, which is actually pretty impressive.

      • What's a Drexl? says:
        (link)

        @Jay: gotta have about min 4-5 inches on him and probably 30 or more lbs.

          • What's a Drexl? says:
            (link)

            @What’s a Drexl?: basically looked like me trying to rebound at age 13 the rare weeks a couple of forwards/centers were late(i’m a skinny and for that age tall for a guard sized person) to a basketball game. i’d be made a forward, and was smart at boxing out, but still got thrown around/elbowed pretty much all the time. nor could i jump with the other forwards/centers for rebounds. i’d end up with elbows at that altitude as well.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @What’s a Drexl?: I’d add like 2 feet and 150 lbs, but I think we’re both close. Math wise, not sure that works, but I’m sticking with it.

  9. MAGA says:
    (link)

    i have a question

    Alshon jeffery is popped for PEDS. 4 games. he hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire… do I drop him since he won’t be back for week 15 or 16 anyway (i think week 15/16 is our semi final and final week) because you have to make it to the finals anyway or hold onto him? i don’t think players who get popped for PEDS qualify for espns IR slot so he’d be burning a bench space..

    probably be targeting a top waiver guy over him

    thanks

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @MAGA: they didn’t last year, only site i know you can have it set up so that all players that miss time can go in stash slots is fantrax (one of many reasons it’s the best)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MAGA: Yeah, he’s an okay drop at this point, I think you make the switch.

  10. Big league choo says:
    (link)

    10 team standard

    Have the no. 1 priority for waivers this week, best available are prosise, Kelley, Dixon, Mathews, Steve smith and Britt

    1) Who is your guy from that group?

    2) Best TE Ros Barnidge, Brate, Z Miller, Fleener, Thomas, Ertz, witten

    I’m 6-4 after this week atop my division
    Qb Brady, Big Ben
    Rb McCoy, Forte, Stewart, Hill, Gillisslee
    Wrs Beckham, Fitzgerald, Sanders, Tate
    TE Barnidge

    • Big league choo says:
      (link)

      @Big league choo: 3) my McCoy for Benjamin and Kelce was just offered?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Big league choo: I think Prosise is the guy here. Best TE… hmm, I’m tempted to go Witten here, but Brate intrigues me a little more.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Big league choo: Can you stream that position? I think that might be the best option.

      • Big league choo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I can stream…but every pickup we drop to the end of waivers.

        Have two trade offers
        McCoy for kelvin Benjamin and Kelce

        Big Ben and forte for Melvin gordon

        would you do either or both?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Big league choo: Oh, that makes sense. Okay. I’m find iwth the McCoy trade, and I like the Gordon trade too… I’d probably try dealing Shady there since it solves your TE issue.

  11. Alvaro Cadena says:
    (link)

    Paul Perkins, Sterling Shephard or Tyler Eifert for tonights game? Need one to fill in my flex.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I would go Eifert there for the floor. Shepard for the ceiling. What’s the score like for your matchup?

      • Alvaro Cadena says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        I’m down 55.9 to 101.5. I still have Eli Manning, AJ Green and one of these 3 to go. I’m thinking high ceiling play with Perkins but you’re the pro!

        Show me the light!!!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Alvaro Cadena: Ah, yeah, I’d go high ceiling for sure.

                @Eli Man Penguin Boy: Fair point… didn’t catch that. Shepard was my ceiling guy there… but to be fair, he didn’t light shit on fire… just kinda put in a good show.

                • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay: i was correcting him, you clearly said shep was the ceiling, he came back saying it was perkins, which i think was a brain fart more than an actual opinion on his part (i hope anyway)

  12. endershadow says:
    (link)

    Who should replace Gronk this week?

    Witten vs BAL
    Rudolph vs ARI
    Thomas @ DET
    Brate @ KC

    Thank you

  13. Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
    (link)

    man wheaton is the epitome of why you don’t draft guys currently injured at draft time. this really only hurts for 20 team leagues where you’re often sometimes correct in holding somebody like that for numerous weeks, as obviously in 12’ers you’d just add somebody else by week 3 or so.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Eli Man Penguin Boy: Yeah. Wheaton is the longcon that doesn’t work out. I blame Bryant.

        @Jay: yeah i got that guy stashed in a fantrax team with infinite IR slots (can’t believe i got him as late in the draft as i did either, and REALLY surprised the PIT owner didn’t hold him, as we got these guys at their THIS YEAR ADP cost as team keepers predraft, so zeke was a 1st round keeper for DAL, m.floyd was a 5th rounder for ARI etc)

        for reference, it is of course hard to find IDP/PPR dynasty only ADP data, but i found one site:
        http://www03.myfantasyleague.com/2016/adp

        look at all the options on that, just awesome.

    6-4, but 2nd in points, so need 1 or 2 wins to make the playoffs:
    Owning in 3wr 2 RB no flex PPR
    Palmer
    Ty/Edelman/Crabtree/JMatt/Meredith
    DJ/shady/Jstew/Gio

    Who is your drop to roster a QB with a better matchup than Palmer (v Min) (Cousins, Eli, or Winston are best options)? Despite Jeffrey’s PED, I still think it is Meredith, but curious to hear your thoughts on Palmer (who gets a plus matchup in week 12).

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The imp: Yeah, based on this roster, I think it is too. Shame. What’s your feelings on just straight out dropping Palmer?

      • The imp says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Well Palmer lasted his whole bye without being picked up and then I got him 11th on last week’s wire. Between me and two other owners we’ve been playing musical chairs with those guys listed above plus Dalton and Dak. Any week I’d probably get at worst third of those bros unless leaguemates start carrying an extra QB or folks get frustrated and switch for Bortles or whoever. The data say Palmer isn’t scoring enough tds, but also say he provides a high yardage floor. I lean to hold two QBs only cause I need them, though a Meredith blow up would have me kicking myself. Thinking aloud here.

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @The imp: Ah, gotcha. Maybe Ty is a safer drop. Then again, I can still see some value there. Tough one, but I don’t think you *need* Meridith, so at least there’s that.

          • The imp says:
            (link)

            @Jay: yeah Meredith is the safer drop for my team, but more valuable for everyone else. Next year I’ll spend the first rounder in a QB. (Okay, not that.)

    Morning Jay, have a couple of waiver questions…

    In my 10 team standard I have some bench players I’d like to replace including Maclin & Bibbs (have D Booker but not looking to sit on that handcuff)…I just grabbed M jones Jr off waivers & have T Benjamin also on bench.

    To replace Bibbs, should I add Starks or Prosise? I have 39$ left in FAAB
    To replace Maclin, do I snag Eli Rogers, R Woods or Meredith? I’m starting Snead, D Adams & Britt this week with Marshall on bye/bench :(

    On to my 12 teamer, I’m also targeting Starks (dropping C West handcuff)…than I’m wondering if I should grab D Adams over there as he is somewhere available…I’d have to drop backup Dak….

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’d go Prosise there, and then probably Meredith. FAAB post is going up soon, but I’m okay spending the rest of it.

      For the 12-teamer, that’s fine on Starks, but I think Adams needs to be owned for now. I’d drop Dak for him.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: why do you prefer Prosise over Starks? With Rawls coming back, don’t you think Seattle will be harder to find sheer volume at RB…while Green Bay has no other RB to Starks & have proved they cannot win by just throwing the ball….

        Also, with regards to Goff starting for LA, I know it’s tough to predict but does this help or hurt my Kenny Britt stock who I picked up as my WR3 last week?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Not a big Starks guy. I think Prosise will have issues once Rawls comes back, but I think he’s obviously the guy over CMike right now, and I get the feeling Rawls will be eased in. And on Goff, man, it’s a good question. Tehol seemed to like Goff okay in college, and I’d have to think it can’t get any worse. I’ll say a slight upgrade.

  16. Nick says:
    (link)

    Also for D, stick with LA v. Miami or pivot to Minn v Az, Oak v Houston or Pitt at Cle?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Probably Oakland… but I’m tempted for Pitt. I might hold for now and see what’s available to stream later.

    Dynasty question. I can keep 2 of 3. Evans, Cooper, David Johnson. I’m thinking of keeping the Wrs and trading DJ. If I can get a 1st and DeMarco for DJ and a 4th is that enough. Murray would be a rental for this season. Mind you I gave up a 1st and 2nd for DJ earlier this year. I already clinched a playoff spot. Thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Wow, first world problems. Tough decision here. I think your judgement here is sound… RBs are bit more volatile. I like it. And think of it this way, you basically traded your second for a ticket to the playoffs. That’s how I would.

      • Pat says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Lol thanks man. I would rather get something for Johnson now rather than lose him for nothing. Without costing myself a shot at the title I have 4 3 round picks. Be nice to get back in the 1st.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Pat: Right, hate losing DJ, but this makes too much sense.

    What’s up Jay-

    Quick trade question for ya… I’m really light at RB having missed on Eddie Lacy as my top dog. I currently have Frank Gore, Tim Hightower, Chris Ivory, Matt Asiata, James White & Dion Lewis. I’m pretty stacked at WR with Antonio Brown, Jordy Nelson, Crabtree & Mike Wallace so I was thinking of flipping one of them for an upgrade at RB. The team I’m targeting is rostering Mark Ingram, Jordan Howard, Darren Sproles & Devonta Freeman. Who of this group would you target and who would you package in an offer?

    I was thinking of trying for a Wallace for Howard/Ingram swap, but am curious what your take is…Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Z: Seems like a collection of misfits there. I might try a Jordy for Ingram deal straight up. Both carry risk, and might solve issues on both teams. How is this team to trade with? Do they need WR?

      • Z says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Interesting… Ingram has tons of potential, but the newly formed timeshare scares me a little. Jordy is definitely not the same receiver, but his targets per game are monstrous…. but i see where you are coming from

        The team I am looking to trade with is definitely in need of a WR. He is currently sitting on Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Michael Floyd, Kenny Stills & Tajae Sharpe…you could say his WR’s are as much of a band of misfits as my RBs.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Z:Yeah, I totally here you. I’m still liking Jordy moving forward. Maybe try a combo of Crabtree and Wallace? Could be enough.

    Give Forte & Demaryius (both on byes this week) for L Miller & either Crowder or Snead?
    10t PPR league / 4 way tie for 4th pl
    Roster also includes Gurley, Gio B, A Brown, Cobb, Ty Mont, Jeffery
    Thx

      @a bag of sand: Yeah, I’m fine with that. I’d probably go Crowder there, but I’m fine with either.

    how would you rank these guys: meredith, r woods, prosise, tyreek hill.

    my drop candidates are: kapri bibs, rashad jennings, tim hightower.
    who should i pick and drop? currently in 9th spot so need production right away

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @justin: I’d go Meredith, Prosis, Hill, Woods. I think Jennings or Bibbs is an okay drop. If you aren’t starting either one, I’d just drop Jennings. Keep the high upside guy on the bench.

  21. Ben says:
    (link)

    In a std 12 team league, my WRs are Dez, Moncrief, Pryor, Marvin Jones and Corey Coleman. Would you find it unnecessary to give up Pryor to get DeAndre Hopkins? He has to go off at some point, given the amount of targets he gets. I appreciate the advice

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ben: I actually like that upside there. You have Dez and Jones at those positions, so why not take a chance for that third spot? I like it.

  22. Jerry says:

    Hey, Jay. I’m looking to upgrade at wr. Which trade proposal do you like better: Forte for Tyrell Wiliams or Forte and Landry for Baldwin and Diggs? Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: I’d go baldy and diggs there.

  23. Zandy says:

    Blah must win out…
    Anyways, at most I need to start 3 WRs
    I have Hopkins Tate Sanders Cobb Wright Watkins Alshon

    With a roster spot, pick up Floyd or Inman? Or rather gamble on a RB handcuff?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Hmm, I’d go Inman there. And I haven’t even started rankings yet. I’ll give you an idea of what I’m thinking so far though… maybe Tate, Sanders and Hopkins right now.

  24. a bag of sand says:

    Give J Hill for B Cooks?
    Non ppr for my flex spot
    Have David Johnson, L Murray, Hilton and AJ Green

    Hey, Jay. Doyle, Henry or Ladarius ros? Also, would you trade Dalton for Kap? Thanks!

    • Jay

    Also, forgot to ask would you grab Floyd, Lockett or Royal for ros? Thanks again!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Jerry: Hmm, maybe Floyd with the homerun potential. Lockett for the floor. I’d probably go Floyd.

        @a bag of sand: This feels like a 10-teamer, right? If it is, I’m kinda thinking still about Ty for Sims… are you in a position where you have to start Ty? If he’s just on the bench, I’d actually make the switch with Sims.

        • a bag of sand says:
