Well, we had some derp, we had a whole bunch of boring, and so… we had your prototypical Monday Night Football game. But clearly, let’s be sure to give them their due, the Vikings are for real. Sorta. Maybe. I mean kinda. That’s my definitive opinion. In what was a not particularly close game (but not really a blow out), the Giants once again proved that they have one of the best wide receiver trio’s in the NFL and have no idea how to use them correctly. Ben Mcadoo-doo and Eli Manning keep trying to make Will Tye a thing, and I have no clue as to why. He’s like the Hollywood version of Jai Courtney. And while the Giants shortcomings on offense have been a big frustrating so far, the same can’t be said for the Vikings. I mean, I haven’t heard this much praise for Norv Turner since he defended Earth from that meteor shower. And who would have thought Sam Bradford was the next coming of “Sam Bradford fulfilling his potential”? I mean, the Vikings are 4-0… incredible. And yeah, half their wins were against the Titans and the Giants, the version of which we saw last night that was quite meh. But the other two are against the Panthers and Packers. You put all this together, and you actually have a team that is on it’s way to the playoffs. And a lot of sad Bears fans…

Odell Beckham Jr.3 REC, 23 YDS, 7.7 AVG. If Hillary Clinton could get under Donald Trump’s skin as easily as cornerbacks get under Odell Beckham Jr’s skin, she would already be president. And going with the politics theme, here’s another Gruden… THESE GIANTS, I CALL THEM THE G.O.P., BECAUSE THEIR TOP PLAYER IS A HOTHEAD WITH TERRIBLE HAIR WHO IS ALWAYS MIXING IT UP OUT OF BOUNDS.

Sam Bradford26/36, 262 YDS, 7.3 AVG, 1 TD, 101.9 RTG and 4 CAR, 6 YDS. Sam Bradford is good at taking what the defense gives him, but terrible at giving it back. Wait, I messed that all up. Whatever, the joke is that Sam Bradford is 1/16 Cherokee. But let’s have some real talk everyone… Sooooo, before or after the bye when Bradford finally receives his end-of-the-season injury?

Orleans Darkwa12 CAR, 48 YDS, 4.0 AVG, 1 TD. Darkwa Duck? Let’s. Get. Dangerous! And please, let’s get Rashad Jennings back!

Charles Johnson2 REC, 70 YDS, 35.0 AVG. That Charles Johnson was a pretty good catcher. Get it? Get it? You need to click on it to get it. Clever, right? I thought so.

Eli Manning25/45, 261 YDS, 5.8 AVG, 1 INT, 63.3 RTG. That type of throw will not get you a juice box, Eli. I hope someone tells him that people can’t bring a ladder out there to help catch the ball. If only the Giants had some talented downfield receivers that you could somehow use optimally…

    With Carson Palmer up in the air this week, do you start dalton or wentz?

    What’s your outlook on terrelle Pryor in std? Is he wr2/3 like a top 30 WR?
    Have you given up on Floyd and golden Tate?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: No, I wouldn’t say that high, maybe top 60 just because he’ll have times like last weekend. The Browns are just awful, and that’ll bleed over. WR3, with the potential to be 2 if they get this shizo together. Not on Floyd, this is who he is. Tate, less so, probably just a meh stretch.

  3. Scott says:

    With Golden Tate stinking it up out there, it’s time to put Victor Cruz in, right?

    @Jay: I’ve been coveting DeVante Parker all year, and now I have a window…

    I can get Parker for Gio Bernard… do I do it? Current RBs are Matt Jones, Charles Sims, Rashad Jennings, and Arian Foster.

    Current WRs are: A-Rob, AJ Green, Randall “Suck Ass” Cobb, Victor Cruz, and Adam Humphries

      @William Hung: Yeh, I think that’s fine since you own so many RBs here.

    Hey jay,

    12 team PPR
    1st place 4-0 (2nd most points) :)

    Qb: Ryan (rivers)
    Rb: d.murray
    Rb: Yeldon (Langford, a.foster, Dixon, d.washingotn)
    Wr: green
    Wr: Bryant
    Te: witten (barnidge)
    Flex: Hilton
    Flex: Austin

    Which trade would you do if either?
    Ryan for McKinnon? I feel like I could need a better rb2 and I can pick up Prescott/Romo to pair with rivers
    Or
    Ryan and barnidge for bottles and reed?

    Thanks for helping me get Into first and keeping me there

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @James: Yes, I would totally do Ryan for McKinnon. No worries man, that’s what we’re here for!

  6. William Hung says:
    (link)

    @Jay: I know I asked you this during the preseason, but after looking at a bunch of rosters and Bortles on bye for me- I wanted to follow up and ask again – Why is the strategy of rostering 2 QBs not recommended? It seems if every team is doing it, the team not doing it is at a disadvantage like I am now.

    Also, do you recommend that I straight up drop Bortles for a waiver claim on Wentz, or try to drop someone else (Dwayne Washington) for Wentz and roster 2 QBs for 1 week? If I miss out on Wentz, I’m looking at Siemian, Fitzmagic, Mariota, Hoyer, or Bradford and none of them are better than Bortles.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: The spot is just generally better for either roster flexibility or stashing a flex (WR/RB/TE). You’ll see, generally, much better results for a team that either streams and plays the matchups generally correctly, or holding a lower tier viable QB like Philip Rivers, and then just subbing at the bye. For every team that’s holding an extra QB, there’s that many more players available on the wire, so at the very least, I think that aspect evens out in the end.

      Yeah, Bortles is a streamer, I’d drop for whatever is the hot hand, like Wentz or Bradford.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Interesting – thanks Jay!

        You mention that Bortles is a streamer, but in your QB rankings through the first month he’s been a top 10 play each week (at the min 3/4)

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Right, but those aren’t ownerships, just where I expect him to be on that day. He’s a guy that is fringe 10-team, sorta viable in 12-teamers.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: Ah ok, that’s where I am in a pickle because I am in a 12-teamer

            • William Hung says:
              (link)

              Looking ahead for Bortles, he doesn’t play a good D until week 10 when he faces the Texans and then cake until Weeks 13 and 14 when he faces DEN and MIN. He’s going to be Top 10 those weeks – can I really drop him? Decisions… decisions…

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @William Hung: Yeah, it’s tough in that context, but I wouldn’t be shy about it if there was something more interesting.

                • William Hung says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay: What should my strategy be then?

                  1. Drop Bortles for Wentz, Bradford in that order?
                  If both are taken tomorrow morning –
                  2. Drop Dwayne Washington for Hoyer, Siemian, Fitzmagic, Mariota?

                  I actually have people in my league waking up at 3am and 5am to try to make moves without using a waiver priority.

                  • Jay

                    Jay says:
                    (link)

                    @William Hung: 1 Yeah, 2. Hold probably. And to be honest, I’m thinking Bradford is a hair better than Wentz ROS, but it’s really close.

                    • William Hung says:
                      (link)

                      @Jay: What’s the % chance you would’ve given entering the season that both of these guys would be relevant in fantasy?

    Jay,
    In my small 8 man league, where I have McCoy, Gurley, Forte, Crowell and Dixon:

    Which do you think has better value on my bench? A handcuff like Powell or Yeldon, a situation back like Sproles or an injury bounce back like Foster or DLewis?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Buge Hoobs: I’d say injury back, the talent is so high, you are not only getting insurance with better names, but possible trade value if they breakout at some point.

      @omar: I prefer group b. Close though.

  10. Dan says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    I’m in need of an RB and have a surplus of TE. Ertz, Rudolph, Henry. I’ve been offered Duke Johnson for Ertz or Rudolph. Even though Duke is incredibly underwhelming, he’ll be someone I can plug in if Ryan Mathews continues to trend down. What do you think? Leaning Ertz for Duke. This is a 12 team ppr league.

    Also, would you drop Henry for Martellus Bennett in the event Gronk is never 100%, or continue to ride the Henry wave until Gates is back?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dan: Oh yeah, I’d do that based on what situation you’re in. Ertz for Duke makes sense. I’d ride Henry until Gates returns.

      • Dan says:
        (link)

        Do you like Rudolph or Ertz ROS? I can’t decide. Ertz has the upside but Rudolph and Bradford are clicking. Much appreciated.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Dan: Yeah, it’s really murky right now. I’d say Ertz still has the long term value, but Rudolph can help you now.

    bad week for me all around, big ben could not save me from ODB’s mess…anyways, in 10teamer, grab Ertz dropping Pitta to put in for week 5? I have Graham on bench with bye..

        @Jay: Same 10 team, do you like Coates for next week over my current sad roster of WR (Marshall/T Benjamin/J Brown with Maclin/Snead on bye). I have Sharpe too on my bench so I could use him or drop him (or drop Smallwood who Im stashing)

        • Jay

          Jay says:

            • Nick says:
              (link)

              @Nick: Dont think it will take much but wonder who is worth dropping, its 10 team league

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Nick: I’d want him over Smallwood maybe. Hard to say with Mathews, but I’ll be honest, I think you’re fine with WRs. The bye is just taking some options away.

              • Nick says:
                (link)

                @Jay: My RBs are Freeman & D Johnson starting & Lat Murray at flex (he was my mistake, Oakland just does not like him)

                As a result, I think I kind of need to keep that 1 RB on my bench. Smallwood is on my bench now but waivers RB include james white, Darkwa & Powell — you like any of them over Smallwood for bench warmer?)

                Think Ill have to pass on Coates unless you like him over Sharpe on my bench…

                • Jay

                  Jay says:
                  (link)

                  @Nick: Yeah, I think Darkwa is about the same thing at this point, so I’m fine with Smallwood there.

    Hey Jay,

    Tyrod or Siemian for Russells bye?

    Do I hold onto Ebron? I got Ertz. Would be dropping Ebron for Corey Coleman, Hogan, Boldin, or Quick.

    Thanks!

      @m1chael: Probably Siemian if he’s healthy. I think Coleman for Ebron makes some sense.

    happy prewaivers day of the week!

    20 team PPR. start 1 QB/ 2 RB/ 3 WR/1 TE/ 1 flex
    QB rivers
    RB howard/bell/langford/CAP/zenner (looking better value maybe if washington stays out)
    WR jeffrey (WAY too connected to CHI here)/s.smith/t.smith/wheaton/lee
    TE jimmy G
    1. which TE this week out of cook/clay/tye/one of the SF guys (and would have to pick today), probably clay just from having A role for sure.
    2. drop any of t.smith/wheaton/lee for any of (and what order and how many if any) of quick/c.brown (CAR)/a.wilson/c.johnson (MIN)/butler (probably loses any value with dez back though). lee had solid targets for 3 straight weeks but having dropped woods (pre watkins injury) for him looking like shit now.
    3. gotta hold zenner and CAP over these right: the IND guys not named gore, juszyck (BAL), j.allen, farrow. j.bell/hightower

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

      @What’s a Drexl?: also have gabbert and have to drop one of m.burnett (a highly ranked S) or d.jones (ATL’s middle LB now) to grab the backup TE for jimmy’s bye week. burnett hasn’t done much and was hurt most of weeks 2-3. have h.smith (producing and usually ranked one spot above or below burnett) at S, and have one IDP flex spot.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @What’s a Drexl?: Tough one, I think maybe hold onto Jones since Smith seems to be doing okay.

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

          @Jay: yeah, when in doubt bascially ALWAYS take the middle LB. however he was the guy who head wacked camnewtown and EVERY week has a questionable tag. but has played every week so far too. in weeks 84/99/96/68%’s, might’ve missed some time after wack a newton in week 4. only issue is the reason he was obtainable, IF worrilow comes back where goes his job? but at same time weatherspoon now out for year.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: Yo! I think maybe Cook and hold on those three. I do like their value in a 20-team. And yeah, on 3, I would still hold both over those options. I was hoping Bell would show me a bit more last week.

  19. William Hung says:
    (link)

    @Jay: Is Hogan considered the 2nd WR on the Patriots? Trying to gauge the pecking order for targets in NE. Right now I’m speculating Edelman 1A, Gronk 1B, then Hogan

    If that’s true, I have a feeling he could be more valuable than someone like Corey Coleman since Coleman is hurt for another 2 weeks and who knows what the state of the Browns passing game will be by then.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Sorta, but Brady spreads it out when it’s not those two. Like maybe first year Amendola. And yeah, he’s more useful than Coleman.

    another 12 teamer with exact specs except a 3rd WR and no flex

    RB mccoy/all three CAR guys/smallwood/starks
    WR diggs/a.brown/sanders/t.benjamin/tate
    TE fleener (on bye)
    RES: abdullah

    1. team is a shit show in RB’s. drop how many (and which) to attempt to aquire west/d-wash (DET)/zenner/booker. probably starks at least for west then d-wash maybe, but maybe a 2nd for both (doubt i even get west though). booker also might be better stash than starks anyway.
    2. drop fleener himself for one of these or tate: pitta/tamme/brate, gotta think those are about fleener level though.
    3. drop tate for any of: royal/thomas/britt/parker/woods (i could just use the ROS for this, but only if that was updated post watkins news, which i’ll be able to tell, i know how low woods was before that)

        @Jay: if no starks over west doable (it’s likely it’s not) drop starks or any other RB for booker/d-wash (DET)?
        2. if hold on fleener who’s my drop for this week TE? fleener on bye

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @goodfold2: Yeah, I think maybe just drop for roster space then.

    Hey Jay,
    Great stuff as always, my man. Thoughts on this crazy 2x secret 3 team trade I’m working?
    12 team ppr Mine is:
    QB-Brady (Dropping Hoyer for Romo who has Cle on Brady’s bye)
    RB D. Murray/McKinnon/J.Howard/Matt Jones/Rawls/Dion Lewis on IR
    WR- AJ/BMarsh/Hilton/Snead/Beasley/Coleman
    TE- Walker/Eifert
    I trade Murray and Snead for OBJ & Jordy,
    then flip Jordy & Matt Jones or Mckinnon for D. Johnson
    We start 3 WR 2 RB & a flex
    AJ/BMarsh/Hilton
    Johnson w/ either Howard/Jones/ Mckinnon /Lewis & Flexing OBJ looks pretty good to me.
    Risking too much on Rookies or Returning from injury dudes?
    Sorry for being long winded, but that shizz is complex!

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @jayhawks24: Yeah, I like that deal for you. I’m hesitant because of how that leaves you at RB… but I think you have the depth to figure it out.

  24. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Would you deal Gurley and Crowder for ODB and Crowell ? Other rbs are Yeldon, Duke J, Dw Wash, Darkwa and wr are Dez, Wallace and Cooper

      • Nightpandas says:
        (link)

        @Jay: You like Crowell in this deal more than Bernard?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Nightpandas: PPR? Eh, even if PPR, I’m slightly higher on Crowell right now.

    How much money would you throw at Bilal Powell and Philly D/ST (100 budget) I have Houston D/ST but they have a couple rough matchups without watt and Philly off their bye. Not a forte owner but seen the rumours he could be hurt. I’d be dropping Dwayne Washington. thanks! .5PPR

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: Probably 15/2 there. No probs! (Be sure to check with our FAAB guy, post above this one. Lance is really tuned into this stuff.)

  26. Nick says:

    In my 12 team standard, I feel like I need to cut bait on D Williams or Ware as they are costing me bench spots…

    QB- Big Ben
    WR- ODB & K Benjamin
    RB- Freeman & Ingram
    TE- Just grabbed H Henry dropping D Allen
    Flex- Marvin Jones
    Bench- T West (starting this week), D Williams, Ware, Cobb, T Coleman & K Cousins

    Would you drop Ware or D Williams for for J Graham, D Henry, C Hogan or S Smith? In this 2WR league it will be tough playing any bench guys at that position over ODB & K Benjy unless due to byes…

    Also’ stick with Catanzaro or move on to Nugent, Crosby, Folk or Vinatieri??

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Probably Williams for the hot hand, which is either Hogan or Graham. Gates should be coming back soon, so maybe Jimmy’s usage is a sign of things to come.

        @Jay: how about the kicker?

      @Revi: I’d sub in Royal then. Maybe for Smallwood, but it sucks losing these guys in a keeper.

    Sup Jay.. Would you drop Gates or Crowder for Royal?? I have Gronk as my other TE

  32. Runfast says:

    Hey Jay, could you help me navigate through this bye week?

    10 team yahoo standard league.
    QB Brees
    RB Demarco/McCoy; ware, Mathews, latavius, Coleman
    WR A Brown, Jeffrey, Maclin, John Brown
    TE Graham/ Eifert

    I need a QB since Brees is on bye. I also need a TE as I don’t think Eifert is going to play this weekend, and I just picked up Graham. In this case do I drop Eifert to snag a QB? I feel as good as eifert was last season (and though I’ve been stashing him since the draft) it might be time to let go especially with graham showing some life and the fact that Eifert didn’t even practice?

    The other issue with this is it leaves me short a TE so I’m considering dropping one of my RBs not named McCoy or Demarco.

    Thank you!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Runfast: Sure thing man! I would rather hold on your RB and WR here. I’d probably drop Eifert here… what’s your waiver status? You could probably try to regrab him afterwards.

  33. Jb says:

    Pick up Inman @oakland , butler vs Cincinnati, quick vs buffalo Ppr league

    w/ palmer out, go w/ any of the following over m. floyd at flex?
    darkwa
    asiata
    smallwood

    thx

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @a bag of sand: Smallwood maybe, but I’m not so sure yet. Check my rankings first thing tomorrow.

  36. Will says:
    (link)

    Currently 0-4 with my team
    QB: Palmer, Flacco
    RB: Elliot, Forte, McKinnon, Rawls, Henry, Coleman
    WR: Robinson, Cooper, Diggs, Pryor
    TE: Dwayne Allen (dropping for Ertz)
    D/ST: Arizona
    K: Catanzaro

    I need a QB this week since Palmer is out and there aren’t many good options on the waiver wire. A guy just offered me Wentz for Pryor. Do I take that, or try to get more out of him? I could also try to trade Elliot for OBJ if that helps alleviate the loss at WR.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Will: I’d try to get another small piece out of that, maybe some bench depth. I think I would hold on OBJ at the moment.

      • Will says:
        (link)

        What do you think about Pryor and Coleman for Wentz/ and D. Williams or Barnidge or Latavius?

        • Jay

          @Will: Latavius sounds okay actually. I like that potential.

  37. matthole says:

    Hi, thanks in advance for your opinion

    12 team, .5ppr, 3 WR, 2RB+ flex

    1) offered Baldwin and Rivers for my Brees. My WRs are: AJ, Fitz, Snead, Moncrief then waiver wires. I’m still screwed this week for WR3 with Baldwin and Snead on bye, but nice long term. I also have Wentz and Flacco (Brees bye week alternates).

    2) my RBs: Jeremy Hill, Blount, CMike, Howard, CSims. I have been offered sterling shepard for Howard or Blount. I think I need to do one of these to fill in my weeks 5&9 WR bye week holes and for WR depth. He also has Crabtree but seems like it’s a bit late after last week’s 3td.

    Shepard may not be the best value as a return but as of now I’m looking at Amendola, Alghor, or Britt as Week 5 WR3. He can be a starter and allow me to compete in weeks 5&9 – while I’m likely to bench a RB anyway, which does me no good.

    Would you do the first option, second option, both (if both, I can get fuller instead of Shepard too) and which RB would you trade? And why on everything?

    Thanks again

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @matthole: 1 – I like that deal for you, I think Rivers and Brees are closer this year. 2 – Yeah, I like the Shepard for either. I’d probably want Blount, but it’s pretty even. I’d focus on the second option, seems to be the best outcome.

      • Matthole says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thanks for the reply

        To be clear, you like both deals, but would only do the second one trading for Shepard. It would be for Howard. He pulled Blount offer after seeing his hurt hamstring concerns.

        Why not do both if you like both? Thanks again

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Matthole: Oh, I thought you wanted me to pick one. I’m good with both.

    12 team league with deep benches where we can only have 6 max RB’s. i have howard/langford/dixon (having to start dixon this week)/mccoy/ingram/rawls
    .2 point PPR
    drop rawls for smallwood?
    2. same league, have 3 QB’s with fitzmagic as the worst. hold him or grab hoyer or keenum?

    3. 12 team PPR land. ajayi and d-washington OAK both have gotten value ups in last 20 or so hours. which one this week and which one ROS if i also have l.murray?

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: nevermind question 3, i could’ve waivered d-was last night over ajayi but didn’t with the ajayi news, and then today even before the lat murray news hit rotoworld (6:17 eastern) d-was was aquired, somebody heard about this before rotoworld did. wow. now i need to start ajayi or d.lewis or yeldon indefinitely every week unless lat murray comes back.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: actually do still answer the d-was vs ajayi though as it might help for other leagues or other people.

  40. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
    (link)

    is the lat murray situation such that i need to trade one of crabtree/j.matthews for a RB? start 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 flex.
    QB luck
    RB cj anderson/booker/ajayi/yeldon/lat murray/d.lewis
    WR green/landry/crabtree/j.matthews/woods

    Jay now I have an issue in std league
    I only have 2 moves left for the week
    Jalen Richard is a free agent
    DWash is on waivers until Friday

    I need to start 1 RB
    I have Asiata and Rainey rostered now
    Do I drop one for Richard now? If so who?
    Then put in waiver claim for Dwash and drop the other? (Keeping both raiders)
    Pls let me know so I can make the Richard move before someone else does. Thnkas!

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      CAP and Darkwa are also on waivers so if I go for Jalen now I’d lose my shot at either of those two…

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Zandy: if richards is a FA and CAP/darkwa are in waivers you wouldn’t lose your shot at d-was by grabbing richards now (presumably dropping rainey first)

        • Zandy says:
          (link)

          @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: right but I couldn’t grab dwas and one of cap/darkwa

          Would just be dwas and Richard if I did it now

          • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
            (link)

            @Zandy: you said d-was WAS in waivers, so no guarantee you get him right?
