It wasn’t exactly the worst week in the history of the universe, but it was quite average for both myself and Rudy. I actually think the opening sentence from the FantasyPros accuracy report, written by Bobby Sylvester, kind of surmises the strange week we just had:

In Week 6, we saw the #41 ranked RB for the week explode for over 200 yards, perhaps the worst starting quarterback in the NFL break one of Kurt Warner’s old records, and a brand new coordinator put all of his confidence behind Terrance West, leading to another breakout game.

Indeed, you had a top-10 that was pretty jumbled compared to past accuracy leaders. That being said, I’m very ecstatic that Razzball, despite all of that rankings wonkiness of Week 7, was represented at the number two overall spot by Tehol Beddict! Call it crazy, sure, but also call it well-deserved. The dude has been a rock here at Razzball Football for several years now, and someone who I consider more in touch with the “nuance” of football more than anyone here on the site, including myself. Basically, he’s a dog whisperer, but with football… and, you know, less dog abuse. The entire Razzball ranking “group” including myself, Tehol, and Rudy’s amazing Pigskinator look forward to having a strong Week 7, starting with my rankings after the jump…

    Hey Jay,

    I have Bortles and Carr in my 1 qb, 12 team PPR league. Generally I’ve been starting Carr but this week will start Bortles.

    Winston has become available. Should I swap out one out for him? Having trouble choosing which one if any.

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @fleeced: I actually like Bortles this week against the Raiders. This isn’t a normal thing for me, so I might try him out this week.

      • fleeced says:
        (link)

        Thx Jay, I’ll start him.

        But for the rest of season? Hold tight?

        @Jay:

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @fleeced: For ROS, I might want Winston over Bortles, yeah. I am kinda worried about that running game, if Quizz can be effective, then yes. I think Winston gets enough space to make something happen.

    Std League
    Would this be your roster for this week? What about double KC?
    RB: Gurley Ware
    WR: Alshon Cobb
    Flex: Ingram

    Bench: Charles, Hopkins, Knile, Montgomery

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Yeah, I wouldn’t double up here, just because you have Ingram and Gurely, who have to be in there. It comes down to a coinflip on Ware and Charles, and I have Ware one more week. Charles should hopefully be taking more snaps and we’ll see where we are after Sunday.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: makes sense. Worth coin flipping kc or would you rather slot in one of the bench guys

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: I like that setup. Rodgers should be vintage against the Bears. If not, then we should start to worry about that team.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @Jay: need Alshon to be vintage too :(

              @Zandy: Wouldn’t that be something. Jeez.

    Yo Jay,

    Well done as always hombre. I have 2 leagues, both of which I just picked up Ty Montgomery, which I think was solid due to Lacy’s injury? You don’t seem too high on him. Can you take a quick peek at both of my lineups/benches and let me know if I should tweak? PPR leagues each. The teams are very similar, I’m mostly worried about whetheror not to start Alshon and Snead. Thanks bruh.

    Team 1:
    QB: Matthew Stafford
    WR: Antonio Brown
    WR: TY Hilton
    RB: Terrance West
    RB: Jerick McKinnon
    TE: Gary Barnidge
    Flex: Ty Montgomery
    Bench: Willie Snead
    Bench: Ryan Matthews
    Bench: Andrew Luck
    Bench: Eddie Lacy
    Bench: Donte Moncrief

    Team 2:
    QB: Jameis Winston
    WR: Antonio Brown
    WR: TY Hilton
    RB: Ryan Matthews
    RB: Jerick McKinnon
    TE: Gary Barnidge
    Flex: Ty Montgomery
    Bench: Alshon Jeffery
    Bench: Tyrod Taylor
    Bench: Tavon Austin
    Bench: Darren Sproles

    Any tweaks?!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Project Merkin: Thanks man! I do like Ty more in PRR, so there’s that. I’d say both teams setup looks good though. Right now, I want McKinnon over Montgomery just from shear snap count.

  4. Blake says:

    Interested in your TE rankings, olsen is on a by in my PPR league:

    Why is J thomas ranked so low? good matchup?

    should I just go with doyle since the other guy is out?

    or will Pitta get alot of targets?

    A gates and C brate are out there as well

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Blake: JT’s volume has been so sporadic lately, not sure what to expect from the gameplan. I like him ROS, but I’m fickle on him this week. I still like JT over Doyle though. Pitta slightly more because Flacco is an elite checkdown artist. That being said, if you are streaming, I’d go with Brate right now.

      • Blake says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        So brate is the top option over:

        Pitta
        Doyle
        J Thomas
        A gates

        this is a replacement for one week since I have Olsen

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Blake: Yeah, only as a one week option, going Brate here.

    . 5 ppr league

    Who should I FLEX this week out of this bunch, it’s tight:

    Landry, Fitz, Meredith, Gillislee (if McCoy is out), T Coleman

    thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: Going Landry there. Any time! (And you’re right, they were all grouped together.)

      • ryanoger says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        If McCoy doesn’t go, still FLEX Landry?

        thanks jay

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @ryanoger: Yeah, I think so.

  6. Zandy says:

    Lamar Miller over Gurley ROS?

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: saw your answer in the other thread. Thanks man

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        Of course!

  7. Rice says:
    (link)

    If McCoy is out this week, where would Gillislee fall in your rankings?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Rice: I think he’d move up about 10-20 spots. This will be updated in the following days as the news becomes a bit clearer.

  8. Adam says:
    (link)

    Have been offered Brandon Marshall and Melvin Gordon for AJ Green and Corey Coleman .5 ppr starting 1RB 2WR and 2 FLEX

    Current RBs Howard, Ryan Mathews, Coleman,Jaquizz, Knile
    Current WRs Aj, Hilton, Deandre, Tyrell Williams, Corey Coleman

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Adam: Interesting trade. I kinda like the Gordon side, but I think I’d rather have the singular power of Green with all the RB depth you have.

  9. Roll of SAGNOF, Hear my Cry says:
    (link)

    Why so down on Chris Hogan this weekend?

    Seems like a juicy matchup.

    Trade Q.:

    Give my Odell for Gurley and AP? 12-team, keep 4, half-ppr.

    I’m not super high on it but it’s an interesting offer. I think I’d rather have Odell, but I would enjoy hearing your thoughts. Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      It’s a good matchup, and I’m still iffy on him at the moment, but I see the volume going to other places right now. On the trade, yeah, very interesting. I’d actually want Odell here, but I think it’s very fair, and if I was setting up to win next year only, I might do it. Looking over the next three years, I’d want Odell.

  10. Nick says:
    (link)

    Based on ranks, I think you have these 3 in this order; T Benjamin, Snead, Jennings…I have Snead in WR3 (risky as it’s away) & T Benjamin at flex (he has had that one good game, otherwise not to much going)…thinking of plugging R Jennings, what you think? I also have J brown, Coates, L Murray & D Booker on bench but don’t think any of them are worth starts this week…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I think it’s okay. I’m a huge Jennings guy, despite his flaws. If you’re looking to mitigate risk though, I’d want at least one running back, even if they are all three risky proportions.

  11. Heath says:
    (link)

    Your rankings seem pretty generous to Matt Forte. As a disappointed Forte owner, you still believe he’s going to deliver?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I still believe, mostly in PPR formats.

  12. Sano Chance in Hell says:
    (link)

    Can you talk through why you’re so low on Rivers this week v. Atlanta? Or why you’re significantly higher on Stafford v. Wash?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Sano Chance in Hell: I might move him up a little bit, I actually didn’t know the ECR to my peers was so low until you asked. I think it’s more that I like the other matchups better is what happened here. For Stafford, I actually like this matchup. Wash is bottom five in passing defense right now.

  13. Jim says:
    (link)

    Got Hopkins starting at flex right now. But thinking of putting in McKinnon or meredIth in. What u think?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jim: Rather would go Meredith in PPR, McKinnon in standard I think.

  14. JimmyJackJames says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, hoping Jordan Reed can play this week but if he can’t, I have a brutal drop decision to make to pickup a TE – two part question:

    If Reed is out, who do you like most in half-PPR: Clay, Jules Thomas, Doyle or Brate

    I’ll need to drop one of the following:

    McKinnon
    Gillisie (I have McCoy)
    Russ Wilson
    Tate
    E.Sanders
    J.Howard

    I have great RB depth – McCoy, Ingram, Ware, Howard, McKinnon so thinking Gillisie is the best option but would love to get your view. Hoping Reed suits up!

    Thanks man

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @JimmyJackJames: Probably Brate this week if you need to. Would love to hold Gillisie there, but he might be the drop. If you feel confident enough, punting TE is an option. I don’t like that idea though, so let’s hope for the best.

  15. Dave says:
    (link)

    You have Jordan Matthews ahead of Desean Jackson by one spot in PPR thats what I’m not sure about as my WR3. Should I really start Jmatt against Minnesota over him I’m scared of them shutting him down basically just want to be talked into starting him lol and with BMarsh being my other receiver I feel like I have no good receivers this week.

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dave: Yeah, I think last weeks game puts a temper on it, double check my updated rankings this weekend, but I think they are so close, just go with what you’re comfortable with. When they are next to each other, it’s about equal in my eyes.

  16. cory says:
    (link)

    am i crazy to consider starting hoyer over brees this week?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @cory: When I get asked these questions, I always hedge on the crazy part, so I’ll say this would be… a unique choice. I wouldn’t.

  17. Toby says:
    (link)

    Where would you rank Gilleslie if McCoy is unable to start? Would you consider starting him over C Mike or Ware?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Toby: I think he’d move up about 10-20 spots… maybe. This will be updated in the following days as the news becomes a bit clearer. I would not see him overtaking CMike or Ware this week though.

  18. RD says:
    (link)

    I was offered Beckham for TE Reed and Landry.
    I also get RB Powell.
    I have WR Shepard, Thomas and Fuller and some fill ins.
    PPR currently in 7 th place.
    What do you think?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @RD: I would take Beckham. You need to make a move at this point. Shake things up a bit.

      • RD says:
        (link)

        @Jay:
        I did it!
        Picked up Clay @ TE this week.
        I feel good!
        thanks!

    12 team PPR, who to play in flex? (In order)
    Allen Hurns, Crowell, T. Coleman, or Diggs?

    Also, someone just dropped Arian Foster..think there’s a chance for a mid season breakout?

    I’m thinking of claiming him off waivers and dropping Crowell..should I pull the trigger?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @David: Feeling Diggs there. Yeah, I’d want Foster… but dropping Crowell, that’s a tough one. Anyone else to drop?

      • David says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        I was thinking the same thing..and if u could pick 1 of Hurns, Crowell, or Coleman for flex week 7 PPR?

        And not many droppable options for foster..Just Crowell, Tevin Coleman, John Brown, and Allen Hurns, everyone else is undroppable. I’m hoping Fosters a serious buy low right now.

        • David says:
          (link)

          @David:

          My week 7 roster is as follows..
          Tom Brady
          Jordy Nelson
          DeAndre Hopkins
          Stefon Diggs
          DeMarco Murray
          Jerrick McKinnon
          Vernon Davis (Olsen bye)
          Flex: Allen Hurns
          BN: Doug Martin, Greg Olsen, Isaiah Crowell, Tevin Coleman, John Brown

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @David: Leaning Coleman there. I still like Foster, but I’m not sure where the room is.

          • David says:
            (link)

            @Jay:

            Yep that’s my predicament =\. Would you keep a declining Crowell (on weak offense and losing touches to duke) over a near healthy foster? (with a weak o line) for ROS

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @David: It’s pretty even for me, but I like Foster… complicated though, because he has his own issues if Ajayi has another monster game.

      @Zandy: I think you should ask SON today, he did a lot eyeballing on Jackson… but I think owning Ty is the big thing here. Knile is my second choice, so I think you are okay. (Reverse that for standard.)

    Also in STD league

        @Zandy: It depends how panicked he/she is. If they have a strong flex option, I don’t think they’ll like that trade. If not, I think it’s fair.

      @Zandy: Totally give it a try.

  22. Eric says:
    (link)

    Hi Jay,

    I’d like to get your input on my dilemma, which isn’t helped with TNF and a 9:30 AM London game.

    12-team PPR. I’m trying to fill 2 flex spots. My options are Devontae Booker (vs. Hou), Ty Montgomery (vs. Chi), Gillislee (@Mia-only if McCoy sits), Kerley (vs. TB), Cruz (@LA). Also, I have a waiver claim in for Jacquizz (clearing tomorrow) – but I’m #10 and probably won’t get him.

    Excluding I don’t get Jacquizz, I’m leaning toward Montgomery and Booker, as are your rankings. And choosing Montgomery for TNF would lock one of my flex spots.

    So to try to make this as easy as possible for you:
    1. Assuming I don’t get Jacquizz, which 2 would you start in the flex: Devontae Booker (vs. Hou), Ty Montgomery (vs. Chi), Gillislee (@Mia-only if McCoy sits), Kerley (vs. TB), Cruz (@LA)
    2. If I manage to get Jacquizz, obviously I’m starting him. So who would the other spot be out of: Devontae Booker (vs. Hou), Ty Montgomery (vs. Chi), Gillislee (@Mia-only if McCoy sits), Kerley (vs. TB), Cruz (@LA)

    Thanks in advance. And sorry for the long post, but it’s a complicated situation!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Eric: Yeah, but can you try to lock a WR slot just to keep things open? I think in both cases, Ty is the fill-in here. Maybe Gillislee, but we don’t know with McCoy yet.

      • Eric says:
        (link)

        @Jay: my 2 WR slots are taken by Fitz and Cobb – both must-starts, so we’d be in the same boat. But ok, I’ll start Montgomery and then play the other slot by ear Sunday morning. Thanks very much!

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Eric: Gotcha, makes sense. But I agree.

    Someone just dropped D.Baldwin in my 12-team Half PPR. Is there something wrong with him I cannot find on the internet? I should obviously use my #1 WW on him right?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MJP: Yes. Pick him up now. No clue why that happened.

  24. Cheese says:
    (link)

    Tehol huh, what a stud! Always knew he had it in him.

    I’m in a 16 team 0.5PPR league looking to shake things up. I’m likely going to be completing the following deal:

    Give: Matt Forte
    Get: Devante Parker and Tajae Sharpe

    I’m also looking at making one of the following 3 deals on top of that first one, which route should I go?

    Give: Carlos Hyde and TY Hilton
    Get: Ezekiel Elliott

    Give: Carlos Hyde and Jordan Matthews
    Get: Mark Ingram

    Give: Carlos Hyde and Jordan Matthews
    Get: Mike Evans

    The last 2 intrigue me most as Ingram and Evans have had their bye weeks (I’m 1-5, need as much help as I can get)

    Here is my roster:

    QB – Carson Wentz
    WR – TY Hilton
    WR – Jordan Matthews
    WR – Emmanuel Sanders
    RB – Carlos Hyde
    RB – Matt Forte
    TE – Zach Miller
    W/R/T – Robert Woods
    Q/W/R/T – Cody Kessler
    BEN – Chris Ivory, Rashad Jennings, Jacquizz Rodgers

    Thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cheese: I’d rather have Forte in the first one. As for the next group, I like all of them, but would probably want Evans first, then Ezekiel second with who you are giving up.

  25. DT says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay.

    Would you drop Snead for Jacquizz or James White in a 10 team ppr league? White has been hot lately, but I know Lewis’ return will hurt him. Snead hasn’t put it together and Rodgers looks to have playing time for the short term.

    I have OBJ, Jordy, and E. Sanders at WR and CJ, Gio, Theo, and Michael at RB. Would appreciate your thoughts!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @DT: Yeah, I think it’s okay in a 10-team. I’d rather have Jacquizz right now.

  26. Gio says:
    (link)

    .5 ppr predicament… I need help with my 2nd flex. I currently have montgomery in but also have a waiver claim in for j. rodgers. Problem is, if I do not get rodgers ( i have 6 teams in front of me) I am stuck with starting hill. Do I just stick with montgomery and play it safe?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Gio: I think playing safe is okay. I think out of six team, Quizz should be picked up.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @Jay: so here’s the scenario, I have one move left this week. My QB is Eli. Bortles clears waivers tmw. I was going to drop Woods to stream Bortles for this week and next week (Eli on Bye). If I do that, I clearly dont have a move open for Moncrief, clears waivers Sat.(dropping woods). Which move is more important to you?

            Option 1: Start Eli this week, figure out his bye next week. Try to drop Woods for Moncrief (if he’s not already waivered ahead of me)

            Option 2: Drops Woods for Bortles if he clears. Start Bortles this week (Oak) and next (@Ten) – keep Floyd and forget about Moncrief. (Big Ben owner hasnt picked up a QB yet and has Waiver #1 so I assume he will try for Bortles as an FA and not waiver so ill have a short window of time)

            Option 3: Trade Floyd for Dalton. Start Dalton this week (Cle) and next week (Was). Try to add Moncrief, dropping Woods – but if Moncrief is waivered in front of me then I lose Floyd….

            Which is your path of action?

              @Zandy: A bird in the hand there. I think you have to focus right now on week to week strategy. I’d say prioritize your QB stream there. Play to win this week and nothing else, and next week figure it out.

                @Jay: Makes total sense
                with respect to the stream who’s your pick – Bortles or give up Floyd to roll with Dalton?

    assuming my knile for j.hill 10th waiver (somebody just dropped hill), any of these better than knile? d-jax the newest, or just grab b.rainey and hope for them vereen stats? no trade yet, get garbage offers like people doing EXACTLY what i told them in my trade block NOT to do, like ask for aj green for charles (CLEARLY not a top 5 RB with walrus not using him and outright lying about how much he’ll be used, JUST like last year, remember, when walrus literally about 6 times only gave charles 14 or less carries in games KC was actually in), so i’ll be having to start one of knile/yeldon/l.murray if nothing changes. man i really hope one of cj anderson/booker get hurt, to make up these points from my RB 2 slot. sending 2 of meredith/matthews/crabtree for a top 5 RB sounds pretty sweet more and more, since i’m 2-4 here.

    • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
      (link)

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: gillislee was obtained yesterday too, so no help there.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: Yeah, I’d rather have Hill there. DJax is a bit more complicated, but the short answer is, only if your WR is really thin. Yeah, that Green trade you got offered was awful.

      • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
        (link)

        @Jay: no no, the NEW d-jax. don jackson. albeit the WAS d-jax has also been dropped recently in this league.

          • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
            (link)

            @Jay: sweet shit, the owner of gurley just accepted the crabtree for gurley! he’s the kind of owner who responded pretty quickly once i emailed him about offer, and likely doesn’t get email notifications about trades or something, since i sent it 2 days ago.

            • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
              (link)

              @Mantis Toboggan MD: now with this, guessing i’m best off dropping kniles davis for a WR (d-jax off waivers tonight, woods i just dropped, boldin and some others that range out there) rather than attempting hill on saturday night (my waiver is such shit i doubt i get hill anyway)
              QB luck (6 pt TD’s and 6 PT bonus for going over 300 yds thrown)
              RB gurley/cj anderson/booker/l.murray/yeldon/d.lewis (start 2 with a flex, 6 pt bonus for going over 100 rush yds)
              WR green/landry/j.matthews/meredith (start 2, 6 pt bonus for going over 100 receiving yds)
              TE doyle/eifert (start 1, and can’t flex a TE)

                Hmm, I think it’s okay. I’d like to see what Kniles can do, but I think he does have a ceiling, and he won’t get most of the snaps tonight.

        @Jay: Should’ve clarified, I have both defenses since I picked up the Bills when the Seahawks had their bye week and I’ve held onto them. Leaning towards Bills…

    standard (well .2 PPR to be exact, just weird), can only ONLY up to 6 RB. 12 teams, start 3 RB, with 2 flexes. have rawls/both CHI guys/mccoy/ingram/dixon, drop dixon or rawls for gio B (dropped for knile due to being a lacy owner).

      damn, this mccoy news coming out well after tuesday’s waivers will F me in the A. good thing i’m 6-0 in a 14 teamer with all of mccoy/ware/charles/booker/CAP/ivory, but had i ANY idea he was this hurt (or at all really) i’d have dropped CAP or my extra IDP for gillislee here. gillislee went to somebody for $2 on tuesday, looking like i’ll be starting either both KC guys or ware and ivory this week.

    I picked up ty Montgomery just to see what happens tonight with the packers…and dropped my defense . I’ll need to make a move before Sunday . Drop anyone tonight to play Green Bay ?

    I’m also will need one of these guys next week whenever ab is on a bye
    Ty Montgomery @ atl
    T. Benjamin @ den

    @Jay – Is Ty Montgomery a bench now that Davante Adams is active, or should I still play him in my FLEX over Britt?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: I’d play him over Britt this week, yeah. Everything is saying he’s going to get the snaps. Risky, of course, but on paper, I think that’s the play.

  43. Nick says:
    (link)

    Ty Mont to get majority of RB carries…would you consider plugging him over Marvin Jones? I feel he has been boom or bust with TDs and he is going against Norman. I have Cobb on my bench in this league as well…ugh

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: PS I hate this 2 WR league…limits my options every week with ODB always taking up a spot…I have Ware at flex.

    • Jay

      @Nick: Yeah, I understand the thinking, and I know Jones has gone MIA for two weeks, but this seems a bit risky.

        (link)

        @Jay: I hear ya…for some reason I feel like one of those 2 Packers puts up numbers…ideally they both get around 10 on my bench.

          Jay says:

        @Jay: all i know is that I feel good about listening to you and starting Ty Montgomery… what i’m shocked about though is the heavy involvement from Adams and the lack of involvement from Nelson – is this a fluke or is Adams worth a pickup? There are so many mouths to feed in GB’s offense and I doubt Rodgers throws this much again

        • Jay

    What’s up, Jay,
    I just wanted to drop a note & a thought by you. My former roommate introduced me to this site 5 or 6 years ago and I’ve been a better player and let’s face it a better human for it. The 2 greatest things about this site IMHO, are your willingness to post where you ranked as advisors and the humor you all inject in each post. It’s a relief from the monotony of the major media outlets and the self-published folks people who forget that @ its heart fantasy sports are about competing and talking shizz with your friends! I blame Roger Goodell for this sad state of affairs, or maybe it’s Obama’s fault. I don’t know, it’s so tough to tell these days with one candidate emailing pictures of himself sexually assaulting women to another’s unsecure server. You all give so much we the loyal masses, I’ve come up with an idea on how we could give back. Since I just returned from a wine tasting this may a Brown-esque Factory of Sadness idea or a shirtless Tom Brady riding a unicorn tossing gift bags full of lemon haze, Pappy Van Winkle, and gold bars to all the good boys and girls kind of idea. I’m no crustacean, so I share you on my feeds, but that can be a blur to most. I interact with somewhat with the public & find myself in 3-4 convos about fantasy a week. I always recommend people check you out, but few probably remember 5 minutes later. How about a download for folks that is a single sheet people could download that has the site info on 10 biz size cards. I’ve got to imagine that at least 5% of the followers are as nerdy as me to keep a few on them. I’d even put it together for ya if ya wanted. Either way, thanks for all the hard work you guys do.

      @jayhawks24: Wow man, thanks for the kind words. Means a lot. The football site does things a bit differently, but we do a lot of things similar to baseball, and that’s all because Grey has given me an extreme amount of autonomy over here, and even being content manager for the baseball site, he’s allowed me a lot of room to breathe. I think a lot of it is rooted in the fact that Grey has given me a vision, and then allowed me to run with it and supported everything I’ve presented and created. Anything the site does for you the readers, while I appreciate stuff like this, all the credit should go to him first and foremost.

    Thinking of dropping Dion Lewis or Arian Foster for a TE this week. Oh BTW, someone dropped Delanie Walker – is he worth a waiver claim or should I roll with Cameron Brate as a FA? My drop would probably be Foster since he has a BYE next week

      @William Hung: Yeah, same answer I think, Langford is a definite stash, but it also depends on the bench. Right now, I’d rather have Foster than Langford. Probably Lewis too. What waiver position are you at? I wouldn’t say it’s worth it if it’s top-3.

        I have the 10th waiver position – thinking of dropping Knile Davis instead of those 2 as well, not sure how about his volume since Ty Montgomery in the backfield has opened up this offense in unexpected ways

          @William Hung: It was also against the Bears too. I’d only be worried if they didn’t show up, not encouraged that they did.

    BTW, are you sure both Reed and Graham are suiting up on Sunday?

      @William Hung: Never sure, but that’s updated in the rankings when we know for sure.

    Standard league: pick 2 out of Blount, Gore, Mccoy/Gillislee. Also, I probably will have to play Wallace over Pryor so bench Pitta and get Jack Doyle?

    Thank you for your analysis!

      Blount and Gillislee. Sure, Doyle is fine. Thanks!

    Currently have C.Plamer at QB. Should i trade for Brees? I would have to give up next years 5th round pick and would be getting back his 8th round pick and Brees.

    Rather stash Moncrief or Watkins? Std league
    I got Moncrief via waivers and woke up to a trade proposal…
