Another week, another London game… it’s almost as if the NFL is interested in the market and has slowly, yet assuredly gone with the turtle strategy in building European hype the only way they know how: sending the Jaguars ad nauseum. But not this week! No, instead they will get the Saints and the Dolphins, which is actually the start of a great parable. (I think? I’m as atheist as they come, and we don’t have bibles. I mean, we do, it’s just a piece of paper with these sage words written via sharpie: You’re f*cked son.) Speaking of which, rumor has it that Dean Spanos has been really regretting moving my Chargers to Los Angeles, to which I say: k. So, separating my weekly AND obligatory Chargers rant (my therapist says it’s a good idea), we are in Week 4, and with that comes the color of pink, playoffs talk, and Cleveland forgetting they have a football team. But fear not Cleveland, you have the Jets as company! Can the Falcons move to 4-0? Can the Bengals actually win a game this year, or are they feeling like the entire season is Wild Card weekend? Will people actually want to watch the Colts and Seahawks in prime time? And finally, how many shots of Pike’s Place will we endure? The answers to these questions and more after the jump! (Actually, I can’t technically answer most of those questions, Week 4 of football will do that, but, uh, we do have answers to some things! I think?)

Here’s your updated Razzball Fantasy Football Rankings for Week 4 (STD, Half-PPR, PPR, IDP) including our Staff Consensus, player updates, and an opportunity to ask those all so important roster questions to myself, MB, and Zach in the comment section!

    Jay need some help. Need a WR and flex out of Baldwin Ingram and Cooper. Was going to start Baldwin with Cooper in the flex. But now leaning Cooper with Ingram in the flex because Baldwin a game time decision. I could also drop Kupp and pick up Richardson and play Baldwin/Richardson and Cooper. Thoughts? Oh ppr.

      @Allan: cooper and Ingram for me. Unfortunate late start for Baldwin

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Allan: I like Baldwin and Ingram there. Even with the risk, if you can, keep tabs until gametime, if he’s a scratch, go with Coop.

  2. Noam Levenson says:

    What a brutal hit on Adams on Thursday…

    Who do you prefer for a PPR flex? Chris Thompson or Thielen?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Noam Levenson: Yeah, it was pretty ugly. And Thielen, but just by a hair.

  3. Corey says:

    Need one please.
    Blount Perkins Buck Allen

      @Corey: Blount and hope for the best

      Jay says:

      @Corey: I think you should go Buck there.

  4. Jimmyz says:

    Flex question (non-yoga category):
    Looking between D. Henry, F. Gore, or A. Hurns. Here’s the catch; Dm. Murray is one of my starting RBs. Double-down on the Titans rushing attack, or spread the love?

    Thanks!!

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Jimmyz: spread the Love and start Frank Gore

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jimmyz: Yeah, going with Gore there.

  5. Blake says:

    In a 10 team PPR league, a league mate wants to trade me cooks for thompson
    do you think thompson will continue to be a PPR monster?

    here is my lineup

    QB: R wilson
    WR: D thomas
    WR: S Diggs
    WR: J Nelson
    RB: M Gordon
    RB: D cook
    TE: J Reed
    K: W Lutz
    DEF: Cinn

    B: A Jenkins
    B: M Lynch
    B: R Higgins
    B: D Martin
    B: K Golladay
    B: C thompson
    B: R Kelley

    also – Is Jordan reed playing this week?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Blake: as in Brandin Cooks? Take it

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Blake: I do, I like Thompson, but I think Cooks is the better player. And looks like a gametime decision on Reed, keep your tabs on it.

      • Blake says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        So start who

        D Thomas
        S digs
        B cooks

        For 2 wr spots

        • Brent

          The Fantasy Dick says:
          (link)

          @Blake: I go Diggs/Cooks…but Thomas has a sweet match up with raiders…..it’s tempting to bench cook’s against panthers D…but he is finally showing life and I’m sure you want to play with your new toy :)

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Blake: I think actually DT and Cooks there.

          • Brent

            The Fantasy Dick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: No Diggs love this week Jay? Lol….Keenum is such a wild card

  6. Last one out of Liberty city says:
    (link)

    Looking to get a jump on week 5 in my 1/2 point dynasty. I have freeman and kAmara on a bye. I have the 12th waiver and an open roster spot so I want to get ahead of next week.

    Who do you like the best ?
    Ellington @phi
    C. Jonhsnon @phi
    Jalen Richard – BAL
    Bernard – BUF
    Riddick – @MIN

    Thanks

  7. Thor says:

    Standard scoring. Offered lesean or Gordon for my Michael Thomas.

    I’m desperate for a top rb.
    Rodgers
    Lynch, cja
    Obj, thomas
    Te: Walker
    Flex wr/te: amari
    Flex rb/wr: Keenan Allen

    Got Coleman and Henry on the bench, but can’t rely on them yet.
    Do I do this deal? And which one rest of season? Both have pretty decent playoff time matchups, shady a bit better outlook there probably.

    Also got offered a Hyde for Allen, but the Breida owner won’t budge and I’m scared of an inevitable Hyde injury. Right move?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Thor: I’d want McCoy there. I like Thomas a lot, but you could use another RB. And yes, I’d want Hyde over Allen.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Thor: I’d Grab McCoy as well

  8. LordMetz says:
    (link)

    I’m having a tough time picking between Diggs vs DET or Golden Tate @MIN.

    I feel like Diggs is the choice but think Tate is going to have a hell of a game if Rhodes is on Marvin Jones. Who would you start?

    • LordMetz says:
      (link)

      @LordMetz: .5 PPR league

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @LordMetz: Yeah, they’re still close enough, but gonna have to go Diggs there.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @LordMetz: I’d start Tate for that reason

  9. JohnnyBeGood says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay! Need some help. I have Baldwin in flex right now. Should I play it safe and start Jacquizz Rodgers in flex (4pm start) in case Baldwin doesn’t go. Only other option is replacing Baldwin with Vernon Davis playing Monnight…eeeek

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @JohnnyBeGood: I think he’ll play, but risky. I think wait another hour and see how the tweets come out and make a gut call. I’m expecting him to start.

      • JohnnyBeGood says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yea I wanna play Baldwin but can’t take another goose egg this week (already lost Ty Mont). Is Jacquizz even a good play ?! Thx bud

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @JohnnyBeGood: he’s okay, I like him this week, but I know MB doesn’t, and TB is his team.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @JohnnyBeGood: yeah you have til 3 o’clock to make the decision

      • MB

        Mb says:
        (link)

        @Mb: I’d play quizz if no news is out by 3

  10. Brent

    The Fantasy Dick says:

    Cousins or smith or do Kizer or Watson have home run potential?

    Pick 2: diggs, allen, tyreek

    Thanks

    Tfd

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @The Fantasy Dick: yuck, Cousins I guess. Allen and Tyreek

      • Brent

        The Fantasy Dick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks guys..hard to sit diggs…and if I’m starting hill (i also have Hunt) then it’s hard to sit Smith….ugh…hate my qb situation..I have luck too….but stacked at wr/rb cuz it’s 10 team…my other wr is Julio and I have hunt/cook/ajayi/mixon :)

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @The Fantasy Dick: really hard, but I think Allen has a big game against the Eagles.

          • Brent

            The Fantasy Dick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: I like Allen, it’s Hill I’m iffy on (vs diggs)….Washington has a tough D.

            In another league, pick 2:

            Hogan, Garcon, Benjamin, Maclin…I see based on rankings it’s hogan and benjamin….but Benjamin has killed me so far and Garcon gets so many target’s even if Peterson takes him….I hate fantasy football..lol

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @The Fantasy Dick: Hogan and Benjy yeah, I think SD WRs have a big day.

              • Brent

                The Fantasy Dick says:
                (link)

                @Jay: Alright..went with benjy over garcon…think I’m do Diggs over hill tho…now I will just enjoy the games

    Morning on football Sunday!

    .5 PPR league this AM I traded martavis Bryant & got doug Baldwin- it says it won’t process until tues oct 3, I’m the commish would you push it through before the 1pm kicks off , I’m not sure if he was planning on playing Bryant he does have other options. The trade was sent Friday but he accepted at 4am . I have no issue just letting it ride either and waiting to deploy Baldwin next week

    My WRs are as follows: we start 3, and we have a flex but I have mcaffery there. Hogan, Keenan , Paul Richardson, alshon, snead on IR spot since he’s ruled out & I was risky and benched Parker , I dropped Golladay yesterday but never added another player. If I do push the trade through I don’t want to hear it from league mates , but I do have Richardson if Baldwin isn’t 100%

    Since Snead on IR & I dropped Golladay i can add 2 players: start Winston home vs g men? Or bench & add siemian or deshaun Watson?
    w/ my other open slot best available WR or best available player?
    Available WRs: decker, fuller, higgins, Seth Roberts

    Available RBs foreman, alex Collins, Oliver, breida.

    My RBs Gordon, hunt, mcaffery, Abdullah, Carson, Smallwood, chark west. I have DJ on my other IR spot

    Would you rather have Richardson or Lockett?

    — with Gordon’s knee soreness am I nuts to bench Gordon for Carson? Prosise is likely out & Carson looks to be involved vs colts

    Lastly TE Ryan Griffin or Austin sefarian Jenkins at TE I’ve been streaming here, Jesse James is there too on the free agency but that’s basically it. Doesn’t help two teams are rostering 3 TEs- yes 3!! Lol share the wealth, that’s 6 TEs for 2 teams

    Thanks man hopefully I have good vibes on my squad

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: it’s fine to push through a trade with permission from your league mates

      Start Winston, Decker and Foreman

      Lockett today, Colts struggle vs. deep ball.

      I’d start Carson

      ASJ

      Good luck man!

      • Bobby says:
        (link)

        @Mb:

        That’s the thing nobody trades lol, we are all friends but don’t really hear from everyone all the time – I just didn’t want to come off sketchy for pushing it through even though sketchy isn’t my intention

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: yeah, with Matt on everything here.

  12. fizz says:
    (link)

    standard league. duke, chris johnson, or Sanu?

    houston defense or Chiefs?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @fizz: Chris Johnson and Chiefs

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @fizz: Chiefs and Johnson

  13. 976 says:

    You like Carlos Hyde playing banged up (assuming he goes) more than Chris Thompson in PPR? I’m concerned Hyde will suit up and then be very limited or re-injured, whereas Thompson is one of like 2 whole RBs on the Washington Football Team roster this week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @976: in PPT, I’d roll Thompson.

  14. DiRo says:
    (link)

    You really like Powell this week, I have a hard time starting him over Tyrell Williams in a .5 PPR league. For some reason I think he might Final break out this year. Does Powell get any pass catching work this week?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @DiRo: I think he does. I like Powell this week.

  15. Ron Weasley says:
    (link)

    Star Powell or Sheppard in a PPR? I have Beckham on my roster. I wasn’t sure if I was better double dipping with the Giants or is that a disadvantage?

    Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ron Weasley: depends, but in this case, I’d go Powell.

  16. ryanoger says:
    (link)

    .5 ppr league

    Should I flex the banged up Baldwin or go wth Lynch instead?

  17. Jagan says:
    (link)

    FLEX PPR should i play Cooper or C.J. Anderson.Looking for a high score

  18. mets3145 says:
    (link)

    I can’t pick defenses for shit… 2 straight weeks of 0 or negative points

    I’m 0-2 with Koo off my team – I already told MB it’s the Curse of Koo

      (link)

      @mets3145: you really need to use less time
      1. worried about kickers at all
      2. not tending to use 22nd ranked kickers, even in 20 team leagues this is usually avoidable.
