Well, it’s that time again where we jump over the pond with our very own little franchise that couldn’t, known to some (a few) as the Jaguars. It’s almost an annual thing at this point and one has to wonder if the NFL knows how to market something properly if they want to actually grow the brand outside of the states. But hey, this time it’s all good, because the Colts are coming and I’m pretty sure that the football version of Hodor would go over quite well in London. I mean, I assume that Game of Thrones has no borders. True, they have a wall, but it’s not like the white walkers paid for it, ya know what I’m saying? After waking up way earlier than we should and adding an extra three hours of drinking time, the rest of the slate in the North American continent consists of such gems like the Titans at Texans, Browns at Washington, and the Lions at Bears. Ugh. There is an interesting Seahawks versus Jets game if you are interested in napping. And then there are the Bills and Patriots. Hey, at least you’re not going to lose to Julian Edelman as quarterback… well, I mean, unless Jimmy Garoppolo goes down again. Then, yeah… about that…

Be sure to check out Start and Sits for today’s games here, along with updated projections for Week 4 by clicking here. And as always, our updated rankings are available after the jump!

Select the “Flex” tab if you need a more complete picture to decide your starts and sits. Use the “OP” tab for 2QB Leagues. And you can access our Half PPR and PPR rankings using the drop down box in the top left of our rankings when you select the RB, WR, TE, or Flex positions. Any and all questions will be answered below…

    Hello!

    Pick 4 players from:
    Crowell
    Dwayne Washington
    C-mike
    Forte
    Freeman
    Alshon jeffery
    Stefon diggs

    Something about having 2 rbs in the same game sketches me out and as a whole im nervous for the jets/Seattle game (idk why!)

    I was tentatively going with Washington/Crowell/jeffery/diggs but let me know what you think… Washington seems like a risky start over Michael freeman or forte but I love the way that game “should” go (big DET lead, run the ball)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Whatyeahok: Going CMike, Freeman, Jeffrey, Diggs. I normally don’t mind going high risk high reward like you suggest, but I like this group of four here.

    10 team standard.

    RB – Bell
    RB – Michael/Gore?
    WR – Hilton
    WR – Tyrell Williams/Marshall/Maclin/Shepherd?
    Flex – ?

    Set with Bell and Hilton, but have some difficult matchups otherwise. Recommendations?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @R Doumit: I’d say Marshall and Shepard with Gore.

  3. Old Dirty says:

    Tough calls today with ryan or Wilson at qb….

    And have to pick one between Evans, k Benjamin and t Benjamin in a 1/2 point ppr?

    too close to call on the rankings

    Final thoughts?

    • malamoney says:
      (link)

      @Old Dirty: Mike Evans…

  4. TDs everywhere says:

    Who would you drop? I need to add a kicker..

    12 team 1/2 pt. Ppr. I’ve tried to make trades with my rb depth but everyone is being a stiff @$$. I like the upside of both Howard and Dixon and have a hard time dropping one of them. I dont like holding 2 qbs, but after waiting on draft day streaming these two was my plan so i feel like i should stick with it. My thought right now is ivory. He’s injury prone and their oline sucks..

    Qb: Rivers, Winston
    Rb: CJ Anderson, Sims, Gio, Ivory, Howard, Dixon
    Wr: Odell, Evans, TY, Decker, Travis Benjamin
    Te: Ebron

    Not sure who to drop.. apprecite the advice!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @TDs everywhere: I’d say Howard or Dixon, but dropping Ivory is just fine too. If you want pure upside, totally cool.

  5. Crapshoot Kershaw says:
    (link)

    with k.wright back (and maybe without due to sammy) drop r.matthews for woods? 14 team PPR (this one has just gotta be true so i already did it)
    2. same league, start 2 RB with a flex, have these ware/charles (thank GOD it sounds easy finally to pick one this week)/mccoy/CAP/ajayi/booker. that MIA RB show a shit sandwich. drop ajayi for any of starks (upside if fat lacy gets hurt again), draughn (same thing with less fat but more injury prone hyde), asiata, morris (huge upside would think in event of zeke injury)?

    3. ye old kevin question, i know you aren’t IDP guy, but with CB’s it’s all about who’s more likely to be thrown at, you really DON’T generally want the shermans, normans etc once it’s well known they are good. i own breeland/hall (both out for a long time, breeland is perfect example of earlier statement, plus he hits hard) and had to pick up some more guys, now have x.howard (rookie MIA), bradberry (rookie CAR) and verrett (you’ll know him, SD). would’ve stuck with flowers (SD) except he’s out with concussion (he’s an example of a guy who’s ranked well but still gets points)
    start which of verrett vs NO or bradberry @ ATL. both teams throw a lot. ATL might target the rookie.

    4. 12 team PPR. have l.murray/cj anderson/booker/yeldon/d.lewis/ajayi. same ajayi problem as above. drop for washington (OAK), the BAL guys not named dixon, richard (OAK), cunningham.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Crapshoot Kershaw: Rishard Matthews for Woods? Sure. I’d hold on Ajayi. Morris might get some touches if that happens, but there’s no upside there I think. And I’d go Verrett, only because Brees has a tendency to throw a lot. And then dropping for Washington there is actually fine.

    is it a stupid question or even a stupid idea to trade crowell for dez bryant?

  7. Fantasy girl xoxo says:
    (link)

    Can you help…
    Do I start jamaal Charles?
    I have Darkwa, T. West.. PPR league.

      • Fantasy girl xoxo says:
        (link)

        ok! And who else then?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Fantasy girl xoxo: Darkwa is okay, but at least with Ware, you’re covering all your bases.

          • Fantasy girl xoxo says:
            (link)

            you mean Charles and Terrance west? Or Charles and darkwa?

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Fantasy girl xoxo: Yeah, sorry, Charles and West. I’m hesitant waiting until Monday to make that decision.

                thanks jay!!!

  8. Markowskinator says:
    (link)

    Thoughts on who to start as my RB2 (mccoy is my #1 this week): sims or gurley? You have them ranked right next to each other, but with both of their teams expected to be trailing, wouldnt sims give more upside given his pass catching abilities? Of course gurley would have more TD potential for anything near the goalline. Its a full point PPR league.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Markowskinator: I’d say McCoy is fine. If you are uncomfortable against NE, then Gurley.

  9. Brett says:
    (link)

    Can’t say I’m too thrilled about a Bengals home game being moved to London. But if it’s two teams I don’t care about, like the Colts and Jags, it’s fine. I’m actually kind of happy to have something to pay attention to so early. Hopefully, Luck doesn’t get his spleen exploded behind that line today.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brett: Yeah, London games seem not so fun for the teams travelling.

  10. Nick says:

    Hey jay, why are you so low on Snead? He is playing & I’m not sure I should start/sit him in my 10-teamer. Have Marshall, Maclin & T Benjamin in now but could see swapping one of the first 2 receivers for Willie…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yeah, if you want to switch Snead in there for Maclin, it’s not a big deal.

  11. The imp says:
    (link)

    Is Edelman ranked assuming a particular QB starts? I’m having trouble agreeing with expert consensus to start him over DJax or Crabby with a just a couple dozen passes being thrown in this offense. Thoughts?

    • The imp says:
      (link)

      @The imp: PPR by the way

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The imp: I think it’s because Jimmy is back and the BIlls have been having coverage issues… granted, they did well last week. But I’m picking NE here with a good margin.

      • The imp says:
        (link)

        @Jay: With Jimmy officially out (leaving Edelman the only dressed #2 QB), do you sit Julian for DJax and Crabtree in PPR now?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          I’m okay with that, sure. But I still like him.

  12. Wide Right says:
    (link)

    After Parker got me 4pts Thrs night subbing as my WR2, I could use some points from my flex.

    Do I go with Coleman or Fuller at flex?? (Higher Ceiling?)

    Do I go with Forte and Hyde as my 2 RB’s or stick Coleman in there?

    PPR League.. 1 pts for every 10 yards, 6 for TD’s

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: Go Fuller and then Forte and Hyde I think. Good mix of floor and ceiling.

  13. Steve says:
    (link)

    Pick 2 out of 3 in a .5ppr league

    McKinnon, Enunwa, or G. Tate

    Thanks!

    • Steve says:
      (link)

      @Steve: AND
      Carolina or Minnesota for D?

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @Steve: tough one, I think car.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve: Mck and Tate.

  14. Zandy says:

    Hold off dropping Bortles?

    Pick 2 to roster Bortles Dalton Wentz

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Rather would have Dalton there.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: drop Bortles or drop wentz tho?

  15. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Also safe to drop josh Gordon or just hold through the weekend?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I think your safe.

  16. JohnnyBeGood says:
    (link)

    Jay, full point ppr flex, Ware or K White ???

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Ware maybe, I think he still plays a role.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Weird, I’ll let Rudy know, thanks!

  17. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Real quick trade q

    Dalton wentz Bortles
    Hopkins Floyd
    Ingram Gurley
    Ware
    Kelce
    Bench: jCharles, Jennings, Sproles, Asiata, jgraham

    Std – send my Jennings and Sproles for alshon??

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I think that’s fair, you could use am extra receiver.

  18. Nick says:
    (link)

    Still stuck on this Snead decision. I feel stupid benching Marshall as he was a late 2nd round pick (not sure what I was thinking)…but then there is Lat Murray in my flex…could see replacing him as well as he has been very TD dependent..

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’m fine with Snead and Marshall, but I really want Latty in there.

  19. Packers says:
    (link)

    M. Jones or Crowder? Concerned about the injury. Standard league

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Still Jones I think.

  20. MiggY Co says:
    (link)

    I’m definitely the underdog this week, I need the higher ceiling guy today.

    Flacco at home vs Oak or

    Ryan at home vs Caro.

    Please and thank you.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Flacco.

  21. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Thanks jay. So keeping dalton. Are you rostering wentz or Bortles for going fwd?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Wentz I feel like. Tired of waiting on Bortles

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Bortles did well today – almost 25 points today, but I am def looking to go in a different direction as well

    8 Team PPR League
    Here’s my roster:
    NEWTON
    JORDY
    COOPER
    GORDON
    CHARLES
    OLSON
    BENCH: GORE, HOWARD, BALDWIN, WARE, BENJAMIN, S. SMITH,

    Would you trade Cam for M. Ryan and Cooks or M. Jones jr.?
    Thanks, Mikey

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Cooks

  23. RD says:

    Quick question
    Freeman, White or Darkwa?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Freeman

  24. Jimbo says:

    Drop Stewart and/or Moncrief or hold till they return?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Hold for now.

      Because people don’t know how to fly!

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

    oh thank god the JAX line isn’t SOOO bad that yeldon can’t at least be possibly be said to be functioning. in quite some leagues i drafted yeldon where i probably only have to play him for like the bye weeks of PIT/CHI and 1 or 2 other teams, but still, whew.

  27. William Hung says:
    (link)

    So the Bears are actually a pretty good team, huh? If it weren’t for the Bills, I’d say the Bears were the biggest surprise so far.

    Also, it looks like that cupcake schedule from the Falcons built up some confidence cause I thought the Panthers were going to actually hold Julio to normal numbers and not video game numbers…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: The best! The Panthers should have, for sure.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        Olsen with another donut of a first half – hopefully Cam starts looking his way in the 2nd half. My matchup this week is shaping up to be a battle of the top 2 scorers, so either me or my opponent will be pissed at losing. We are both 1-2 to boot AND are 4th/5th in total points overall so far.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: It happens with Olsen. You’ll see a whole bunch of drives of nothing, and then one drive he’ll do like 90%.

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: LOL Lions just now – terrible throw by Stafford and a terrible play call from the Lions – you are in FG range at the end of the 1st half – you gotta play conservative

          • Jay

            Jay says:
            (link)

            @William Hung: Stafford has no idea how to do conservative.

  29. Zandy says:

    What should I target in return for jimmy graham?
    Like a sterling, Howard, Tate, Emmanuel lower RB2 and lower WR2/3???

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Could maybe get Howard, but I think his value is a bit lower than that group.
