When the off-season began for the Eagles, it was clear that times would be changing.  How much things would change was merely the question.  Would they overhaul the roster?  Would they resign Vick?  Would their defensive ineptitude come close to improving?  Well, to answer those questions, no, yes, and no.  When I originally saw the signing of Chip Kelly, I was surprised by how many people assumed that Vick would be the starter in Philly.  Too many people assume that Chip’s offense is solely built for a running quarterback when the truth was nowhere near that.  Chip’s offense relies on his QB to be quick.  Quick on his reads, that is.  So when people heard that there was actually a camp battle for starting QB, many assumed it was just the media hyping things to make drama.  Normally, I’d side with the hype-train side of the argument but there was definitely a case for Nick Foles to become the starter in Philly.  For all intents and purposes, I saw Foles as the future for the Eagles barring any major trades or draft picks heading into 2014 so to see him step up against a strong defense in the Bucs and dismantle them – going 22/31 for 296 and 3 passing touchdowns to go with one on the ground – you could say I wasn’t overly surprised.  Ok, I was surprised he scored THAT much but still the fact remains that Foles is quality QB and Chip knows how to handle one of those.  It’s gonna be hard to tell how this whole scenario plays out given that Vick was named the starter heading into the year but has been very erratic in terms of how he’s run the offense so far.  Don’t be surprised if Vick’s hamstring ‘isn’t quite ready’ next week so the Eagles can see what they have in this young Philly.  In other news from week 6 of the 2013 Fantasy Football season…

Josh Gordon – Even with the Fantasy Weedenwhacker at QB, Gordon managed a solid end line, especially in PPR leagues (7/126).  Meanwhile, J. Cameron’s day (5/64) was underwhelming but this was my sole concern with Brandon taking back over: the studs in this Browns passing game start playing Highlander.  There can be only one.

Joseph Fauria – Megatron was gimpy all day, leaving Stafford with trying to find who to throw to in the red zone.  He found him.  After 3/34/3, it looks like Joseph’s got something Fauria, deep leaguers.

Cam Newton – Cam’s been pretty maligned by the fantasy community all year.  I don’t know why, he’s doing what he’s done to you in the past and yet you keep drafting him.  He’s an up and down player and after a 242/3 to go with 30/1 on the ground, he’s clearly on the up side of down with his owners.  I still like him moving forward but I have a hard time believing he’s ever going to be the reliable guy that you all thought you drafted…and you still owe me an explanation why for.

Jamaal Charles – The Chiefs keep winning and Charles keeps seeing plenty of touches.  Coincidence?  I think not.  Only time you should be concerned about Jamaal’s numbers is when the Chiefs are playing from behind late.  Until then, enjoy your weekly 100+ total yards and TD a week.  Sometimes he’ll even splurge and go for 2 touchdowns like he did this week.  Hope you’re breaking bread with JC Superstar this year.

Kansas City Chiefs Defense – Hoo…that’s all I can say.  Hope you picked them up by week 2 or 3 like I did in most leagues this year.  But don’t worry, I started the Browns in a few this week so I’m not completely awesome #humblebrag

Matt Schaub – Left the game with an injury to which his home crowd CHEERED.  That’s uncalled for, Houston.  His backup TJ Yates came into the game and threw a pick-6 in the red zone.  That’s karma, Houston.  They say everything’s bigger in Texas.  Given how huge of a mess this team is, I can’t argue.

Timothy Wright – Now I get it on two levels.  Wright probably doesn’t put up these numbers – 7/91 – if 1) Mike Williams is playing and 2) the Bucs aren’t facing one of the worst defenses.  But to all of this I say ‘I’m starting Sean McGrath in some leagues.  Leave me alone, I need hope’.  Kinda, sorta interested in deep-ish/desperate-ish leagues.

Vincent Jackson – Well, it was a battle of ineptitude in TB today.  The tug-o-war of whether a bad offense could take advantage of an inept defense.  Ask VJax owners how it went – 9/114/2 – and they’ll say it went just fine.  I even streamed Glennon in one of those daily draft thingies for fun.  Yup, Eagles defense stinks.

DeSean Jackson – Just trying to get all the Jacksons out of the way for the day.  DeSean went for 6/64/2 while Cooper went up and caught a few for 4/120/1.  If Foles stays around, I think DJax’s numbers stabilize.

Randall Cobb – Never want to see one of your top receivers on the sidelines with crutches.  James Jones also got banged up in this game.  Right now, word is that neither injury is serious but I can count the bumps on my third nipple the amount of times I played pickup basketball the next week after walking around on crutches.  Hint: I don’t have a third nipple.  I’m guessing at least Cobb misses time, making Boykin a possible intriguing pickup.

Arian Foster – How do you gain 197 total yards (4/57 through the air) and not score?  Houston, we really do have a problem.

Giovani Bernard – We’ve been talking about GOB most of the year.  After telling you to BUY after week 1 and then having J-FOH Off-Rhyme Rap at you about him, we hope you got in.  After 100 total yards to go with 6 receptions and a touchdown I think it’s safe to say it’s not a magic trick, people!

Eddie Lacy – He beasted today.  I’m just stepping forward and noting that after saying I didn’t think he’d hold the starting job after a return from injury but after 120 yards on the ground against a tough Ravens rushing defense, I can’t deny I feel like wearing something a little Lacy now…but mainly because I lost a bet.  Where’s my lipstick?  This shade’s not my color!

Zac Stacy – It was a good day with 90 total yards.  I’m sure his owners are a tad disappointed given the scoreboard but it’s good to see your investment produce.

AJ Green – A lot of people have been trying to sell AJ this year.  I can understand a little bit, I guess, it hasn’t been the smoothest of years for Green.  But after 6/103/1, I hope the ‘I just got offered a Greg Jennings and a sculpture of a naked Terry Bradshaw made out of butter for AJ…should I take it?’ comments come to an end.

Chris Ogbonnaya – Leave it to Weeden to make the Ogre look like a star.  Seven receptions, a touchdown and 85 total yards later and he’s a top 20 RB on the day.  Hey Houston, you want Weeden?  Clearly you’re unimpressed with what you’ve got already…

Reggie Bush – He’s pushing to be a top 5 back on the year if he stays healthy.  After 17/78 on the ground and 5/57/1 through the air, he’s giving it his best to make it.  We call that kind of effort the Bush push around here.

Knowshon Moreno – When some schmo starts to cry, cuz Montee Ball was his guy…that’sa Moreno!  Given the conversation was sparked by me having SJax as a stud this year, I don’t see this as me picking on anyone here.  Moreso, I’m just pointing out that we don’t know what the hell we’re talking about.  Wait, who said that?!?  Right now, a guy who might’ve gone undrafted in a few leagues is putting up RB6 or maybe even RB5 numbers so far on the year.  To give you the exact numbers would require me to do calculations.  I gave up after trying to carry the 3 touchdowns and divide by awesome.  Sorry.

Maurice Jones-Drew – Welcome to the 2013 Fantasy Football season.  Now get the hell off my team before you trick me into starting you on a weekly basis!

Michael Hoomanawanui – Read that out loud while you’re at work.  I’m guessing three in ten offices will think you’re having a seizure.  Had some big catches today to keep drives alive for Brady and company.  Gronk…pffft, who needs’um!  Ok, I only brought Michael up so I can say ‘More Who Man? than a Hooman‘.  Alright, self-serving blurb over.

Thad Lewis – Came off the practice squad to throw 2 touchdowns and run for 1 against one of the tougher defenses in the league.  And yet Blaine Gabbert had the starting job until week 6 in Jacksonville.  Philosophical question for you.  What’s the sound of no one clapping?  Answer: EverBank Field.

Andre Ellington – Well, we’ve been waiting for the coming out party and maybe it’s arrived.  Against a renewed defense in the 49ers, Ellington tallied over 80 total yards and a TD on the day.  Andre may not be a Giant – and if you ask David Wilson, that’s a good thing – but he is crafty.  Consider him on the bubble for joining GOB’s ‘Alliance Of Magicians’.

Danny Amendola – The year of Breaking Dan continues.  This time he left the game in the 3rd with what we could assume to be a concussion.  But don’t worry, before that he gave all of his owners 2 targets and 1 total yard.  Honey, why does it say ‘all hurt and no play makes Sky not a ‘dola boy’ all over the house in what I can assume is blood?  Clearly my wife doesn’t understand how important keeping notes for next year is.

Peyton Manning – Was outscored by Brandon Weeden today.  Just in case you’re wondering why your matchup is tighter than normal.  If you’re losing, it’s probably because you’re Scott Pianowski and playing me and I have Moreno.  I’m 1-4 in that league.  What are you doing losing to a poor schlub like me, Scott?

Vernon Davis – Did you know that 90% of Koalas have Chlamydia?  I don’t know where I’m going with that other than it’s an STD and a VD can be an STD.  And in STD scoring, you had a VD breakout today with 8/180/2.  Now you know two important things: Vernon is awesome and stay away from Koala Bears at your local petting zoo.  You’re welcome.

Stevan Ridley – Well, that finally happened: 20/96/2 to go with 1/14 through the air.  One of the hardest things to do is hold onto a guy with only one year of good play under his belt.  If you did so with Stevan this year, you’ve finally been rewarded.  Oh wait, you probably just rewarded your bench.  Yeah, you’re hating life right now.

Larry Fitzgerald – Well, I removed him from my rankings when I heard rumors he’d actually sit today out.  So of course after I gave him faith over the last few weeks that he’d play well through it all, he goes off this week.  See, Ridley owners?  We’re not much different, you and I.

Jimmy Graham – CGI.  Breasts in Hollywood.  A Graham fantasy line that starts and ends with the number zero.  *Carnac opens letter*.  Things that are unreal and amazing to look at.  Meanwhile, Kenny Stills does this week what I thought he’d do last week when I started him.  I hate you, Kenny.

Justin Blackmon – With Cecil on the sidelines early with a shoulder injury, Justin went for 14/190 as Henne targeted guys like Clay Harbor in the Red Zone.  The only thing holding Justin Blackmon back at this point is being a Jaguar.

Marshawn Lynch – Certain fears in life I don’t understand.  Spiders. Sharks.  Carrot Top…ok, I get Carrot Top.  But Lynch went way lower in drafts than he should’ve.  I got him in the 19th of an experts league.  One PPR be damned, that’s silly.  After a 165 total yards (4/78 through the air) and 2 TDs, it’s time to taste Skittles’ sweetness.  Yeah, don’t click that at work.  You’ve been warned.  You might not even wanna click it ever if you like Skittles.

Sunday Night Football – Well, that lazy, drunk, good for nothing JayWrong crapped out on me at the last minute.  And by ‘last minute’ I mean he told me in advance he wouldn’t be able to do it and by ‘crapped out’ I mean it’s his birthday this weekend and I’m sure he’s finding an even deeper level of alcohol poisoning to celebrate than he does on his regular go at these.  I’m saying all this to let you know I’ve got you covered for SNF and to go wish @JayWrong a Happy Birthday after he kicked it Old School like Will Ferrell in the streets.  And in SNF tradition, I’m shirts up for Mardi Gras beads drunk over here.  You’ve been warned.

Robert Griffin, III - I tacked on the triple ‘I’ because he finally played up to RG3 type numbers.  After 77 rushing yards on the night, we might be seeing the re-makings of what made Griffin the fantasy stud he was last year.  He looked good, ran good, smelled good…I have a smart TV, I’m not that creepy.  It’s a smellovision.  Ok, the turnovers were a bit much but I’ll be glad if the fantasy name ‘RGKnee’ goes away.  If I have to throw some criticism at him it would be about his uh…throws.  Yeah, he was errant quite a few times tonight.  We’re talking Bob Uecker errant here.  That said, the legs might be coming back which means I’m officially interested.

Terrance Williams – Another touchdown, this time with Miles Austin in the lineup.  That said, only 2 receptions and 27 yards to go along with it.  Still worried about targets with Williams but if he keeps making the catches and plays he’s been making, those worries will take care of themselves.

Alfred Morris – There were a lot of concerns coming into this week about Morris’ ribs.  I had only heard it was a mild issue so I said he was an ok start.  After a touchdown and 81 rushing yards, I’m gonna have to say The Butler’s fine.

Tony Romo – Ok, I get it now.  Tony plays to the level of competition.  Given the secondary woes in Washington, you’d think Tony’s end line would’ve been about double what it was.  I think we can mark this one as a ‘moral victory’ too.

DeMarco Murray – Thankfully gave his fantasy owners a TD before leaving with a knee issue.  Murray – much like DMC – seemed like a wildcard to stay upright all year coming into the season.  As always, never a question of talent with Murray but a question of health history.  Anything making fun of his injuries would be off-DeMarco by me so I’ll abstain.

Podcast – There’s not one this week.  Apparently the Canadians were saved by Native Americans too and have their own day to celebrate it, too.  A likely story, Nick…regardless, Monday’s gonna just be little ‘ole me for this week.  I heard you in the back complaining!  Anyways, next week we’ll be back to normal.  Or whatever constitutes as normal on a site that calls itself Razzball.

    Mornin, Sky! i got a tough call to make. heading into monday night, i’m up 13.5 points, and i have a spot left to play either ty hilton or keenan allen. i was originally going to play hilton, but my opponent has rivers going, as well as the indy kicker.

    is my best bet to play hilton and hope he has a good game while rivers has a shitty one(not likely), or is it to play allen, and hope to negate some of rivers’ points by allen hopefully catching some of his passes? 4pt qb td league. thanks man!!

      Isn’t Boykin a WR?

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: either the commenter is in one of those leagues wherein WR and TE blend together or he’s asking impossible, silly questions. Either the cops caught him, or he got away.

        • @goodfold2: Yep, it’s a WR/TE slot, and I already dumped that bum Jared Cook.

          So, this week, I could start any 3 of these 4:

          Josh Gordon
          Pierre Garcon
          Hakeem Nicks
          Alshon Jeffery

      • Hooverville says:
        (link)

        @timmy riggins: Totally agree with Riggins, plus your league might look at total points for tie breakers. Start him, one catch for 15 yds, and one carry for 5 and he’s not going negative.

        • Chicken Dinner says:
          (link)

          @Hooverville: One year I had enough wins to make the playoffs. Had the same record as the last team to make it. Sadly, he had more points than me. ONE POINT MORE. Play Woodhead. Every point counts.

  8. Brian says:

    I accepted a trade offer in my standard scoring league I would like your opinion on this deal.
    I gave S. Ridley and got Josh Gordon
    My thoughts are that yes Ridley had a great game against the Saints but his matchups are not easy going forward and I am also tired of playing the Belichick games. I believe the Browns will throw, throw and throw some more and Gordon should benefit.

    Thanks

    • @Brian: I think you made out somewhere between slightly and greatly.

    • Sky

      I like Gordon as a WR1 ROS. Think you made the right move

  9. Wilsonian says:

    If I don’t win this season it’s because I traded Moreno for Spiller. Now I can’t get fitty cent on the dollar for Spiller.

    • Sky

      You still got the better player in that deal. Don’t let hindsight drag you down.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: he’s still going to have to turn it around big time to make that trade ok. My team is still awesome. But Graham KILLED me this week.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          And next week he could fumble and fall out of favor with Fox. Gotta keep things in perspective of what you had vs what you traded for. I’ll always go for the guy whose production comes from his skill set over his offense, personally.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: yeah, I could be ok still. Side note, do you like Keenan Allen or Harvin for a stash? Either would be my 6th receiver.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              @Wilsonian: I’d go Harvin there

              • Wilsonian says:
                (link)

                @Sky: that’s kind of what I was thinking. Sounds like he might be close. And we can play up to 5 WRs, which I do a lot. And Josh Gordon and Decker are my bottom 2.

  10. Brown L says:
    (link)

    My receiving corps is looking a little thin, what with Colston on bye after laying another dud, and Cobb likely missing some time. Who are the priority waiver wire pickups out of M. Floyd (Ariz.), K. Wright, T. Williams, or Boykin? I might even need to grab two.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      PPR is Floyd/Wright. Non-PPR I’d want Floyd and Williams

  11. Clint (aka Pablo Death) says:

    Fantasy football is freaking bizarre. Started Megatron, Cobb, and Amendola only to watch them all flub for one reason or another while my bench WR’s, Antonio Brown, Blackmon, and Bowe outscore some or all of them. Luckily enough, I still snuck away with a close win thanks to Charles finally looking like a first rounder in the TD department. Now if Doug Martin would just get in the paint more…..

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ha, you don’t like averaging 1 TD a week from your first rounder and 100 yards? All first rounders need to score 2 a week? My man, you’re getting greedy! Glad to hear you won, though.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: with those WR’s who wouldn’t be spoiled and likely greedy?

      • Clint (aka Pablo Death) says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        I just think the age of the RB is almost done. Just a few years ago, the 1st round RB’s used to get you 2 TD’s per guy fairly deep into the draft whereas now not even AP’s approaching that anymore while most of the “studs” are turning into timeshares at least on the onset of the season (Spiller, Rice, Foster, Forte, Sproles) or facing injury issues (S-Jax, D-Mac, Murray) or are just plain underperforming from the preseason hype (MJD, CJ2K, Wilson). That leaves you with around 5-7 truly reliable RB’s that aren’t even scoring like they used to at that position and every year it gets worse. Almost like fantasy should stop fielding a pair of RB’s and go down to one or maybe even a flex alone so the WR’s can take over there like they have in the real game.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Clint (aka Pablo Death): I could see that, at least in 12 team leagues. I’ve been pushing for QB1 and QB Flex because of this offensive shift. I think I’m on your side with that idea, too.

          • Clint (aka Pablo Death) says:
            (link)

            @Sky:

            Not to belabor the point but just so happens on Week 6, a mere 6 years ago, LaDainian Tomlinson ripped off 214 total yards (198yds rushing, 16yds receiving) and FOUR TD’s against da’ Raiderz. When was the last time a RB in the NFL had 4 TD’s in a game? I bet it’s even been a while for AP.

      I think you can thank Bradford for setting that trend. It’s like he forgot how successful they were together week 1. Give Wright a shot.

      • Shake N Bacon says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I know it! It makes no sense. It’s like Bradford and their offensive coordinator have amnesia.

        Chris Givens owners are probably feeling the same way though. Friggin’ Austin Pettis.

        Glad to hear RGIII looked better this week, despite his fantasy numbers. Hoping he is back near 100% by the time fantasy playoffs start. I just have to squeak out wins until then.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Shake N Bacon: Seriously, Givens dropped an 80 yard TD on Sunday. That guy is killing me on so many levels. Targets have been there, the production has been nonexistent.

          Yeah, seeing RG3 run like he wasn’t worried about his leg was refreshing. And he stepped into a few throws. I think it’s simply a confidence thing at this point, i.e. psychological. I remember having brain surgery – long story, don’t ask – and then playing basketball again. Took me at least 4 or 5 months before I trusted driving into the lane for fear of getting popped in the noggin. Athletes aren’t robots, sometimes people forget that part of the game.

    What’s your take on Ray Rice, going forward?

    Should I pull the trigger?

          The game has changed drastically these last few years. Mediocre RBs and top end receiving threats can win you a title. You don’t need to make a trade but if you have a good option for TE besides JT, that’s a good move for you. No on Marsh

    One of DeMarco’s owners here. I still have Doug Martin and Matt Forte, but could use a pick me up with only McGahee on the bench. Best available appear to be Zac Stacy, Chris Ivory (if only he’d get touches!), the return of Jonathan Stewart, Andre Ellington and Lance Dunbar.

    Hope your teams did well, and thanks for the advice!

    Is Colston still a buy low target?

    In my 14 team ppr league, I’m being offered colston for my Willis Mcgahee (I know…what a blockbuster trade). Hes really short at RB and I’m short at WR.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Sky,
    Thanks for the blurbs…most of my team was covered (which is usually good or bad news–Arian and Gordon saved my day to bring me to 4-2).
    With With ‘Dola, Cobb, and Vick all on the bench due to injury, and my two extra RBs not being playable (MJD and Ellington) in week 7, my short bench team is officially on suicide watch–meaning just about anything I do to avoid a zero this week will hurt my team ROS.
    In 12 team PPR do you agree with the following?
    1. RG3 has more ROS than Vick at this point and his likely trade value is below his ROS potential.
    2. You’d rather trade MJD than Ellington.
    3. Amendola is not yet droppable in a league with 50 WRs owned (say for a MiFloyd, Randle or Sanders)….I know, I know…that is the blood stains talking.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      1. I can get behind that sentiment.

      2. At this point, sadly, yes

      3. Ha! Yeah, you can’t drop him, as much as you’d like to unless he’s severely injured again. You know, like a stubbed toe.

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Hah….stubbed toe is next to be sure.
        Amendola has me worried for usage reasons too. Yeah, I know he just missed on a bomb that would have made his day and he looked healthy doing his stop and start cuts, but Brady really doesn’t seem to trust him. He was looking, neah forcing, it to Dobson and Edelman first.
        My hope is that the concussion isn’t that bad or that Cobb grows a third nipple and I can hold with my squad.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I think the usage reasons will fix themselves. He’s just not in sync with Brady yet because of injuries. Just needs to play a few straight games to establish himself.

          I’m with you on that hope since i own ‘dola nearly everywhere. Ha! Here’s to third nipples.

  20. Aero says:

    Hey sky, what are your thoughts on Dallas WR’s not named Dez Bryant? Is Miles Austin hobbled enough to be dropped at this point when combined with the target siphoning of Terrance Williams? I’m not sure either of those guys are worth owning outright in a 10-teamer…

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      If you have a deep enough bench, I’d roster Terrance for upside but in reality, neither are huge gets for a 10 teamer unless you have room for Williams.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Trust is based on performance. Ridley gave himself a longer leash this Sunday. Still think you’ll want to move him before Vereen gets back, though. Easy to win a competition when your opponents have a bum knee (Bolden) and are just not that good (Blount).

      Dunbar still is if he’s healthy. Prolly Randle after that, though, after last night’s showing.

    Hey Sky

    Tied for 1st with most overall points in my 12 team ppr league, 2 WR 2 RB 2 Flex (WR/TE WR/RB)

    Right now my RB2 is Fred Jackson (Vareen on bench). I have these WRs. Fitzgerald, Garcon, Blackmon, Steve Smith and Harvin.

    Would you trade any of them for Steven Jackson? If so, which one(s)?

    Thanks

    • Cram It says:

      @James: I’d trade any of them.

      • James says:
        (link)

        Thanks;

        Obv, I would want to trade the WR I value the least. I doubt he would take Steve Smith so its between Garcon, Fitzgerald and Blackmon.
        Im worried bout Fitz injury issues, and Blackmon has a very tough schedule week 11-14 (Houston x2, Cleveland and Arizona).

        WHich WR would you be looking to trade away out of the group? Thanks

          (link)

          @James: After seeing Fitz’s 75 yard TD catch and run yesterday, I wouldn’t bee too concerned. Tough call, but I’d rather have Blackmon than Garcon

      @Scott: Unless you’re getting the price you bought them for, you’re gonna have to ride it out and hope they turn the corner.

      • Scott says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        This sounds like a crazy idea. Should I by off chance blow up my lineup? Currently it’s getting me at the very lowest a league mediuam average of 80 pts in my league which isn’t based on our modified standard points system.

        A team scoring 108-115 will win in our league, with the lowest being 50-70 points.

        However, after a 3-3 start, I’m looking to shakeup my roster a bit and ride Giovani and Doug as my RB1/2. Use my Flex entirely on a high upside WR like Amendola or TY (if healthy) and Garcon/Demaryius as my WR1/2.

        That being said, should I trade for Murray knowing that he will be out for 2-3 weeks or more? Ray Rice has an upcoming bye on Week 9 so at the very least I would ride without Murray for 1-2 weeks. Plus I’m hoping that Murray could provide the boost needed in case I make the playoffs. The guy has Cobb as well too that I could trade for peanuts since he is 1-4 and he is expected to miss 6-8 weeks and may not be ready come the fantasy playoffs.

        But yeah. Of course the smart thing to do is to sit tight and ride it out. Damn you Martin and Rice. :)

          Sky says:

    Sell high on MJD to get Gronk? I have RB depth with MJD, T-Rich, Lamar Miller, Stacy, Pierre Thomas, Bolden. We play with 2 RBs and a flex. My current TE is Jared Cook.

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Snake Hips: I don’t think a guy who hasn’t reached 100 total yards in a game and averaging under 3 ypc qualifies as selling high. But if you can get Gronk, I’d probably do that.

      • Snake Hips says:

        @Pardon Me Madam, But Your Mipples Are Leaking: There’s about one defense like that a year that isn’t even drafted that comes close to running the show and being a weekly threat to score. Besides, we were tired of you holding it for us. It was awkward and your hands are rough.

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Sky: last 2 years i got to 2 consecutive super bowls in my main league no small part due to getting these DEF’s. 2 years ago somebody dropped SF in week 2 or 3, i grabbed and never let go. Last year going into it I thought SEA would be at worst 6th or 7th, they were in the top 3, and I got them 14 DEF drafted in 2nd to last round. Even benched SEA last year a few times, was worried about GB and NE. They made both of those teams look stupid on big TV games.

            Sky says:

            Yup, those diamonds if you get them early are huge for your season. It’s nice when you can set them and forget them at defense and they score weekly like a WR2 or 3 or better. This year, I thought it’d be between the Chiefs/Browns/Bucs. The offense plays such an integral part in a team defense performing well. Bucs and Browns put their defense in bad spots way too often.

        • Pardon Me Madam, But Your Mipples Are Leaking says:

          Haha i hear ya… But its a defense, you can get 20 points off the wire by picking right. We’ll talk week 10 when theyre just another stream option..

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            I think the key thing is there are always streamable defenses – about 3 to 5 a week – and out of those, I’d say about 75% fail. So when you find a defense that you didn’t have to draft where you had to take Seattle and are still getting that kind of production and not competing with someone else for those weekly plays is kinda nice. No different then being the guy who drafted Wilin Rosario late in 2012 or swept him off the wire. It’s just a catcher but when it’s that level of production that late, you gotta crow a little bit. BTW, you work in a steel mill there buddy? What’s with all those calluses?

                Mistake-free football does a lot. Reminds me of the ‘hawks from last year. Wilson wasn’t exactly a stud in the first 6 to 8 games of the year. Pretty much ball-control, play the field position game and let your defense do its job along the way.

                So who did you stream this week? I would like to compare it to the 20+ I got from KC #HumbleBrag

                    Exactly about Alex. Browns were looking pretty good w/Hoyer at QB too. It’s always a give and take on that. Chiefs are just a solid team that’s really well coached. I’m glad the walrus is getting to shove it in people’s faces after getting pushed out of Philly. Not his fault that defense can’t hold anyone under 30 a game.

                    Haha, I was playing you this week! It shouldn’t have even been that close! I had like half my starters on bye and got stuck with Ronnie Hillman as my RB2. ANd Amendola broken and worthless. You got off lucky!

The new coach brought that all together and like Sky said, the offense gave them some time to rest.

    Sky, you’ve taken the high road (or mostly just high).

    No Torrey Smith commentary?! Is that because it matches his production?! I still think he’s a solid play, but here’s the goose egg you don’t like. On a side note, Torrey ‘out produced’ Colston…

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @btd: Ha, everyone drops a dud from time to time though this was more in line with what I’d expect when you’re the main target for an offense. Just ask the Saints about how Graham played when Talib was draped over him.

      I blame Payton’s ego on Sunday. Colston’s not getting enough targets in an offense that couldn’t get the ball to Graham. He felt he could just force the Pats to match his game plan and came away looking pretty stupid. Think we’ll see that change next time the Saints play for Colston, for the better. Wish he was a more vocal guy. In reality, the Pats secondary is damn good overall.

    Trying to swing a 2 for 1 deal, but if I can’t I gotta drop a player for a defense for next week. Who’s the drop?

    CJnoK
    FJax
    Ellington
    Harvin

    0.5 PPR, 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving and 100 yards rushing, 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving and 150 yards rushing.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Ooph…I’d drop the guy who’s not healthy there in Harvin, as much as i hate typing that.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: yeah, kind of what I thought. But I hate having to do it. Just grabbed him and think he could be a free difference maker. I’ve still got a few days. Maybe I can swing something and then it won’t be an issue.

        • Sky

          Sky says:

            (link)

            @Sky: I might have to overpay for someone like Eddie Lacy, but it could be the end result I want. Mediocre RBs and a bunch of WR1s.

                (link)

                @Sky: that’s what I’m shooting for. Stafford and R. Wilson. Dez, Garcon, Green, Decker, Gordon and Harvin. Graham and Black Unicorn. Forte, Bernard, Spiller, CJnoK, FJax and Ellington. That’s the team, but I need to package two guys for one and make room for a defense.

        @Sky: i have greg olsen at TE and im hurting at WR other than Marshall i got Bowe Shorts and Harry Douglas so it intrigued me

        • Sky

            (link)

            @Sky: ahh after someone hearing about me thinking about doing that trade i was just offered Gronk for Larry Fitz, or Nicks sproles thinking trading gronk for Fitz would be better than Percy

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Yup, you’re thinking correctly. I’d dive in there for Fitz, personally, if I’m trying to fill a need.

  40. Pope says:
    (link)

    Hey Sky,

    I’m thinking about playing TY Hilton over Richardson tonight. I’m up by 12 pts, but he’s got both Woodhead and Gates going. Thoughts? I know SD has a bad defense, both running and passing.

    • Pope says:
      (link)

      @Pope: 0.25 PPR if that matters

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        TY rarely has huge rec numbers even when he goes big so I’d still say T-Rich there.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Man, that’s tough…I know TY is rolling but I still think I’d go T-Rich there.

        • Cram It says:

    Thanks

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      I’ll go with the talent there and say Randle. Even with volume increase, Douglas just isn’t that good.

      • Moscowitz says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        Agreed. However i need them for occasional bye week fill ins or WR 3 in case of an injury. Keenan Allen is out there aswell. Still Randle?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I like Keenan more ROS but I think tonight will prove or disprove that for me. Harry will have a high floor but I’d never expect big weekly numbers.

  42. Josh says:
    (link)

    Bye weeker for Graham.

    Coby Fleener, Heath Miller, Celek, or Cook.

    Also, who do I drop?

    Danny Amendola/Edelman, DeAndre Hopkins, or Joique Bell?

    I also have David Wilson, CJ Spiller, Knowshon Moreno, Giovani Bernard, Garcon, Decker, Romo, Manning.

    • Josh says:

      @Josh: Oh yeah.. Is Keenan Allen better than any of those WRs?

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        Not at this time. Want to see how he does tonight before I suggest a move. It’s probably Hopkins I give up on there if Allen goes off.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Miller

      I’m not liking the Wilson news and with them being 0-6…I don’t think they’re gonna rush him back.

      • Josh says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        Thanks. Yeah.. nor I. Was just nervous about dropping Hopkins with only 4 WRs (plus Edelman as insurance on Amendola) while I had 5 RBs for two spots. I’ll drop Hopkins, grab Heath though. Thanks.

    Hey Sky, need some advice on a trade…

    I’m in a league (my biggest money league) where I’m stuck with Eli at QB. I’ve currently got a waiver claim in on Foles, but there’s not guarantee that I get him.

    I’ve potentially lost Cobb for an extended period of time, although that doesn’t seem like a guarantee one way or the other. WRs behind Cobb are Garcon Bowe and Marlon Brown.

    My RBs are ok with Foster, DWill, MJD, Tate, and Ellington…only 2 RB spots, no flex.

    This is a non-ppr league.

    The offers are: Deangelo and MJD for Cutler and Sproles, or Deangelo and MJD for Cutler and Stevie Johnson.

    Do either of those trades make sense? I upgrade at WR/QB and just plug Ellington in to replace Deangelo in my starting lineup? I’m skeptical about trading for Sproles bc he’s a PPR monster, but not so much in standard scoring.

    I figure I’m going to hold out till I see if I got Foles, but if I do/don’t do these trades make sense?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I think they make sense; I’d take the Sproles side. Even in a standard, he’s still got good value. It’s ok to have mediocre RBs this year. You can compete.

  48. Bryan says:
    (link)

    I have Rodgers and Vick…I’m kinda worried about Rodgers with all his wr injuries…would you burn a #1 waiver claim on foles? Would it be crazy to start Foles over Rodgers this week especially? Really good matchup against Dallas.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I wouldn’t be worried about Rodgers. He’ll be fine. I haven’t looked into matchups. I wouldn’t call you crazy to do it but I also think it’s a question of floor. Even ok games from Rodgers usually isn’t that bad.

      • Bryan says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Eagles have Dallas, Giants, Raiders,Packers and Redskins coming up…was considering picking up Foles and playing whoever ends up starting between him and Vick and shopping Rodgers for a RB or WR.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          That’s reasonable. But you need to get a big name in return for Rodgers.

          • Bryan says:
            (link)

            @Sky: would you trade Rodgers for Rice?

                (link)

                @Sky: Hmm based on teams week at Qb not much out there…Alfred Morris, Josh Gordon, and Rice are the biggest names with shaky qbs

                Got offered rice though.

    Is dropping Decker for K. Allen a good choice? Decker being in a Menajahtwa doesn’t provide the confidence of a decent weekly point count. Also have the option of grabbing Harvin to replace Cobb since it’s looking like he’ll be out 6-8 weeks. Harvin was good to me last year as a Vikequeen before he got hurt, would be nice to see him pick up where he left off. What say you.

            Ha! I really thought Keenan was the third option there behind VB. If Gates is getting double-teamed and all the other targets are Woodhead and Keenan, he’s still in the mix for sure.

      Stacy because he has the job outright right now.

    Is Cobb now dropable in a redraft league? Vareen is on the wire and thinking of picking him up and dropping Cobb.

    Dropped miles Austin to pick up Terrance Williams and foles in a dynasty. Also keeping Christine Michael and Deandre on my roster for future use. I feel good about the youth I acquired. What are your thoughts?

      In a dynasty, those look like smart roster moves.

        @Sky: just curious you think I got two future #1 WR and RB? also think I need to wait 1 or 2 years?
