I had the audacity…nay, the paucity (not really a good word to use here but it kinda works)…better yet the ignorancy (not a really real word at all) to go and rank Frank Gore 22nd overall amongst fantasy running backs this week in my Weekly Rankings.  After finishing last week with a decent number and the complaining that he did in the days leading up to tonight, I should’ve known my ranking would come back to haunt me.  Mike Wallace did it, I had been warned.  Or was that the ghost of Gore from years past *faintly heard in the distance is Frank screeching I’m not dead yet!*.  Whatever the culprit, Gore dropped upon his fantasy owners a much needed boost for his believers, carrying the load for 153 yards on the ground on 20 carries with a touchdown and a lone, measly you’re not gonna lose your week because of it fumble on the night.  It was very much vintage Gore.  And that’s why I still strongly encourage the sell.  I used the word vintage for a reason, ya know.  Look, tonight’s game aside, he’s brought you 47 yards a game and only one TD.  Great for a flex but not so great if he’s one of your main backs you rely on from week to week.  I would use this game and last week’s 82 rushing yards vs a very inferior rushing opponent as a springboard to bigger and better things in your league.  As much as I love Gore, he’s just not the RB2 we were looking for.  In other news for 2013 Fantasy Football…

Sam Bradford – I quipped at one point this was the Toilet Bowl: Kraepernick vs Crapford.  Only Sam lived up to the moniker the entire night.  I’m not gonna mince words here to spare my feelings or yours.  He looked terrible.  The Rams started the game off really well and should’ve been up 14-0 with the way they were playing.  But Bradford overthrew Pettis on his way to the endzone for a wide open touchdown – seriously, go find the replay.  Sure, Austin coulda run a better route but damn did Sam really just miss it – and the rest of the night was history.  The Rams never got anything going and Bradford made a lot of questionable throws.  It was like watching a guy try out this video of pick up lines at bar.  You wanna root for him but you know he’s doomed from the words ‘with great penis, comes great responsibility’.  He has a lot of tools surrounding him and the season’s not lost yet but he’s gonna need to CTRL+ALT+DEL this night and play better next week to regain his owner’s trust.

Colin Kaepernick - A lot of hate was going around about Kaep this past week.  It’s one thing to get killed in Seattle but when you fail to out-produce Terrelle Pryor who faced the same Indy defense in Colts territory, you bring out the angry birds.  Angry birds boo in my world, BTW.  Well, it wasn’t a triumphant night by any stretch of the imagination – 15/23 for 167 passing yards and 2 passing TDs to go with a fumble and 11 rushing – but it was a step up from his recent play.  Moving forward, I still have him in my buy column and nothing from this night changed my mind.  

Daryl Richardson – I don’t know what the coaches were thinking.  I’m pretty sure I saw the same run play on every one of his 12 carries for 16 yards.  This offensive line is terrible.  The fact that coaches didn’t get him out in space with a screen pass or in the flat or SOMETHING…well, when I was ripping apart Bradford, realize part of that falls on the staff as well.  You can’t do the same thing over and over and expect a different result.  Much like trying to reason with my wife, that’s the definition of insanity.  Pretty sure Brian Schottenheimer failed at having proper sex 12 times with someone’s navel before realizing he wasn’t doing it right.

Anquan Boldin – After taking a fantasy hiatus, Boldin returned to the spotlight with a 5/90/1 night.  He also drew at least one pass interference call.  Because he’s old and shouldn’t be treated like he’s the young dynamo WR in an offense.  Yo, SF, a little trade help here?  Tx.

Vernon Davis – It wasn’t a great night but for only catching 2 passes for 18 yards, that TD sure was sweet.  Always hard to gauge a player when he’s injured and says he’s ready to play.  Never sure if he’s Paul Pierce’ing you or Knights Of Ni’ing you.

Austin Pettis – Had 5 receptions for 59 yards on 9 targets.  Because Bradford has played so poorly of late, Pettis has become  a viable fantasy option.  I hate Bradford for this.  And I hate Pettis by association.  Meanwhile, Givens was held to 4/49 on 8 targets.  Yes, my love affair is done.

Bruce Miller – Apparently he exists.  And he plays football.  Who knew?

Jared Cook – Was tied for team targets at 9 but only reeled in 4 for 49.  I look back fondly on the first week when I gave him the Breaking Bad moniker of Captain Cook.  I was full on ready to move him to Heisenberg status if he kept rolling.  But here we are in week 4 and he still only has 2 TDs on the season.  Yo, Schotty, a little lower than the navel by week 5, ok?

        Thanks… I’m scared to bench Bowe cause I feel like the day I sit him he’s gonna breakout in crazy numbers.. Lol but I hear ya. Real quick, When I read about Royal on Yahoo they say he lacks Explosiveness and he’s only good for targets. Is that true??

        • Sky

          He’s being targeted and thrown to by Rivers. He doesn’t need to be explosive if that’s the case

    Hey bud, someone in my league dropped gronk…should I put in a bid for him and stash him and possibly use my other peices as trade assets?

    Standard 10 team league. – I have Kaep, AP, Gio, Brandon Marshall, Dez, Jordan Cameron, ravens d and Matt Bryant as my starters, and on bench have Julius Thomas, Lamar miller, joique bell, josh Gordon and Reggie Wayne.

    I’m stacked at WR and tight end but need a backup Qb, especially after kaeps struggles. Any thoughts on picking up Gronk? Thanks, appreciate any advice.

    • willy says:
      (link)

      @Imran Faridi: If someone dropped Gronk then you have to put in a claim for him. If you don’t grab him, someone else will. It’s almost like winning the lottery! That’s just me though.

    • fitz says:

      @Imran Faridi: who in the hell would drop Gronk, yikes.

      • Imran Faridi says:
        (link)

        @fitz: yea agreed fitz and willy, a lazy owner who kept him in his starting lineup past 3 weeks and then decided to drop him for health miller. Strange, guy doesn’t know what he’s doing. I’ll def try to pick him up but I’m 1-2 because Kaeps last 2 weeks. Need to get a nice second qb. Certainly have good trade peices.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      There’s rumors he’s out until week 8 now. It would be very hard to drop one of those guys for that. Think you’d need to make a 2-1 trade to make a move like that.

    I have been offered (his) Montee Ball for (my) Willis McGahee in a 14-team PPR league. My other RB’s are DeMarco Murray, T-Rich, Joique Bell, Ben Tate, and Brandon Bolden; so both either side of the trade would be bench depth – should I take Montee to see if he hits later in the season?

    Just got a trade offer
    I get cam newton and give up Lacy and Julius Thomas
    I have Gronk and Cameron.
    Can also pick up a guy like bolden or monte ball on waivers to replace Lacy on roster
    Would u do it?
    Thanks

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d take Cam there. Pick up Bolden

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @Tim: Personally, I think that is too much for Cam. A trade with JT OR Lacy would be in your favor slightly, but much closer to even. Depending on how much you believe in Cam and hate your current QB, you could counter with one of their targets and a much lower sweetner (or no second player at all). Of course, Sky might like this trade better than I do.

      • the imp says:

        @the imp: ….and in a simultaneous post…he does…so there you go.

    The team below is what I am working with in a 12-team .5PPR and I am currently 1-2. Sad really. Think I need to make a QB change this week and possibly going forward.

    1) This week only: Vick or Pryor?
    2) Rest of season: Vick or Pryor?
    3) Would you trade either Hartline or Marlon Brown to get one of these QB’s?

    QB: Eli Manning
    RB: Forte
    WR: Dez Bryant
    WR: AJ Green
    RB/WR: G. Bernard
    WR/TE: Garcon
    DST: Ravens
    K: Prater

    BN: R. Mathews
    BN: D. Richardson
    BN: M. Austin
    BN: J. Gordon
    BN: B. Hartline
    BN: M. Brown
    BN: CIN Defense
    IR: S. Jax
    IR: S. Vereen

    Thanks!

      Vick. Hard to believe you’d get either for those guys but it would have to be Hartline if you’re selling.

    I know this is a moving target due to Rice’s injury, but are Bowe or SSmith enough to get back in a trade for Pierce in order to avoid a zero at WR this week?
    My other RBs (start 2) are Forte, Foster, MJD.
    My WRs (start 3) are Gordon/Nicks/Cobb (bye)/Amendola (inj)
    The best free agent WRs are MBrown, MicFloyd and both OAK WRs

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @the imp: Okay, just realizing SSmith is on bye. Obviously, won’t trade for him…

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You don’t have anyone else you could just drop for Floyd?

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: This is the full team (1Q, 2R, 3W, no flex), short benches and all Pierce has the least value (excepting Fleener) ROS unless Rice doesn’t get better.

        Vick/RG3
        Forte/Foster/MJD/Pierce
        Cobb/Amendola/Gordon/Nicks
        Fleener

        A trade with a QB for Graham almost happened, but won’t until Rivers tanks a couple more games.
        I also thought about trading Pierce for a TE, but haven’t figured out a match.
        The best RBs on the wire are DRich(stuck on waivers after a late drop)……BJGE/McGahee/BBrown/HIlliman and Ball etc.
        So that is the sort of RB I’d be looking at to refill my RB4 spot once I don’t need the WR5.

        Would you take the zero or make the trade offer / waiver pickup?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I’d be fine with Drich as an RB4 if I could get him. Honestly you’re gonna have a hard time getting long term value from Pierce without more bad news on Rice.

          • the imp says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Yeah, I’d take D-rich too, but since waiver order is reverse order of record (and I’m 3-0 with the most pts right now) there is no guarantee he makes it to me. If Rice plays, I’d have a decent shot at getting Pierce back.
            Last year I took a zero while holding JStew as an RB4 and felt pretty stupid about it when his ROS value was tanking, and I eventually dropped him for SGreen on waivers. Playable RB3s seem to get dropped from time to time in my league (that is how I got MJD and Pierce this year too).
            So, If Rice is going to play Sunday, I think I probably have to drop Pierce for a temp WR5 and try to scrounge a usable RB4 back later. If Rice is out, I’m going to hold and probably start Pierce over Foster to get some upside for the zero I’m going to take.
            Sorry for the mini-novella. Does all this sound about right to you?

              • the imp says:
                (link)

                Hah…haven’t sat a healthy Foster in 3 years. Probably won’t on Sunday too…though HOU is going to struggle to find 3TDs. Whether to drop Pierce or not is the real question that I am thinking way to hard about. Off to distract myself with real data in my real job. Thanks for the advice.

                    @Sky: Now the globe think Gronk and Amendola play SNF. Sounds too good to be true, but would be the best way out for my time. At least the Pats are on the road this week. If they don’t make the flight we’ll know.

    So, when are the Rams gonna go the Brownie route, deal some parts, and gear up for the top offensive line and/or RB pick in next year’s draft already? Can’t believe a Jeff Fisher team looks this bad, especially when they played the ‘Niners so well just a year ago with mostly the same cast on defense.

      I’d be surprised if they went the Browns route. Then again I was surprised when the Browns did it. To be fair, TNF makes some guys look really incompetent when they’re only mildly so but still…there was nothing redeemable about last night for them.

        @Sky: So I’m fishing for a TE (sat Cook hoping Gronk would start)… I see you have Chandler over Clay. I’m not Clay fan, but Chandler’s hobbled. And while EJ Manuel is a rook and may be prone to the check down, Spiller is the safety valve. I’ll attribute the Ravens ‘weakness’ against TEs to the quality of TE players they’ve faced (Den, Cle, Hou).

        Mark me down for Clay @ NO. Gonzalez is the only quality TE New Orleans has faced, and he scored a TD. The others are whoever is filling the void in Tampa and Arizona. Then next week you can run with some type of Clay/Ali theme.

        It doesn’t matter where he grips it. It’s a simple matter of weight ratios!

    Foster, Tate, and one of the following: Hill, Kenbrell, Marlon

    For:
    Lamar Miller, Antonio Brown, Stephen Jackson, and Brandon Bolden

    Thanks for your input, as always. One martini coming your way.

      I think that’s a huge gamble to give up Foster for that package but I’d do it personally. Give up Marlon. And thanks!

    @sky:

    would you trade Gronk & Gordon for Cameron & Victor Cruz?

    I have no legit TE backup right now, position has scored me essentialy 7 total points in 3 weeks.

      I’d want the Cam side

    Who do you start at Flex (.25/rec): David Wilson, Joique Bell or Knowshon?

    • @exactly: Go Joique. He’s producing like a motherfo. Also consider the likely fact that Knowshon will be relaxing with his thoughts on the sidelines come mid-3rd qtr when the Broncos are winning by 17.

    • Sky

      Moreno for high floor. Wilson for high ceiling. Not sure about Bell this week if Bush is back.

  34. Frank White says:

    Who do you like better in flex on Sunday (PPR), Reggie Wayne, Denarious Moore or Stevie Johnson??

      No news has come out that has changed my rankings for the week from yesterday on those guys for me. Still Wayne.

  35. Brian says:
    (link)

    With L.Bell practicing all week does that change your rankings at all on him? would you start him over J.Bell now that Reggie looks good to go. Have you heard anything other then that L.Bell will play on sunday?

    • Sky

      I don’t think Bell is going to magically change that steelers running game. Offensive line has been terrible, don’t think he has a big day.

      After last night and his history, I’d want a like for like high end RB2 or I’d accept a WR2 in the Wayne area.

      If I need a good plug ‘n’ play for the week, I would. But I’d also hold until we know more (i.e., whether or not he’s playing).

    A Giovani for Spiller seems far fetched? I have Gio and the guy with Spiller also has Ridley and is hurting badly being 0-3. Or giving too much, cause I like my man Gio!

      I’ll take the Kaep side there in a 2QB league.

  42. Jamie says:

    .5 ppr- Bernard Pierce vrs Buffalo or Josh Gordon vrs Cinci? If Rice is out, then Pierce right? If not, then Gordon? I think Pierce might get a decent amount of carries regardless of Rice, in a good matchup.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I think I’d go Pierce there if Rice is out or looks to be limited. Tough matchup for Gordon this week.

      • Jamie says:
        (link)

        Gordon a tough matchup even with Leon Hall doubtful?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Cincy’s just a good defensive squad overall. Not just about who’s covering him. Can go for it if you want, just think Vikings secondary is ridiculously bad by comparison. Might have a tougher week on his hands.

  43. Shooter McGavin says:

      • Principle Blackman says:

        @Sky: Yeah. It’s bad. I just noticed that Carson Palmer is also an option. Are you still leaning Locker?

  46. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Worth hanging onto Benny Cunningham or drop for Dwyer?

    Also is does cassel at the helm make cordarelle a strong buy? I have bad waiver position so I feel like I have to gamble before breakout and then drop for waivers the following week

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ehhhh, can drop for Dwyer. Not thinking either are worth much.

      If Ponder can’t throw it 5 yards to the flat, I don’t think Cassel changes things much. You can pick up Cordarelle, though, and see what you get. Picking up now makes more sense than later if you have roster room.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Sky: given latest injury reports you still like rolling with bolden and Hilton and benching Stevie Johnson this week?

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I’m not liking the Hilton news. Seems very out of nowhere. I’d lean Stevie for that reason but if TY isn’t limited he’s still my boy this week. Unless of course, ‘dola/Gronk are back.

    Should I take it?

    Sky,

    Any reason I shouldn’t trade Russell Wilson and Eddie Lacy for Stafford? I love Wilson as a real player, but have reached the conclusion (what perhaps should have been obvious to me earlier) that he’s a much better real player than fantasy. Lacy, meanwhile, is nothing but a promise with no track record except unconsciousness who could just as easily get knocked out on his first run next week as he could be a big producer.

            @Sky: yeah, it’s not for a starter, anyway. It’s for a flex or BYE week fill in, so thought it was worth the gamble on the HR power of CJ.

        Well if I got rid of Sprolles then I would have Martin n mjd at rb, Bennett at TE and Gordon would replace Bowe and I could put Gronk or Finley on Flex. Sound good or don’t waste my time?? also if you like it then would you like Finley if not Gronk??

          If you’re getting Gronk, he should be your TE, not your flex. I’d hold.

            Thans bro.. At WR who would you start, Bowe or Eddie Royal?? Also you think starting MJD in flex is better then Pierre Thomas right?? I already have Sproles at RB

              Royal/MJD

    I only have two options this week, pierce or laveon bell? Non-ppr

      Assuming that’s Bernard? Bernard if Rice is limited or can’t go, Bell if not

    Should I do this trade:

    Spiller, Ridley, and Garcon to get Megatron, Deangelo Williams and Ryan Mathews?

    That would leave me with Deangelo, Joique Bell, Daryl Richardson, and Ryan Mathews and my RB’s

    and my WR’s would be Megatron, Julio Jones, Josh Gordon, and Heyward-Bey.

      I think you’re downgrading Ridley/Spiller to upgrade Garcon and with Julio Jones/Josh Gordon, I’m not seeing the reason for you to do that.

    after that performance from broyles should we be reaquiring jennings? guessing so.
    1. in one league i f’ed up and forgot i left pryor in (i knew i did this in 2 other leagues and jammed tannehill instead in those); with gronk still out (and don’t ya just love the lies that go on, he’s supposedly out till week 6 now, that news didn’t hit till nearly start of sun games) do i want fleener (finally utilized) or h.miller (also very utilized)?

      That sucks.

      Go for it in Jennings. Looks like Cassel can hold his own in that offense; at least better than Ponder.

      Miller for floor; Fleener for ceiling. Miller is the safest choice.

        @Sky: rewaiting out gronk here, so probably floor. b.s. they wait to tell us that gronk even could’ve been out till week 6 till this morning. I know it was likely he was still out this week.

    What up Sky?

    Someone just dropped Percy Harvin to our waiver wire. Who do I drop for him on this team?

    QB: Eli and Romo
    WR: Pierre Garcon, Eric Decker, Amendola/Edelman, DeAndre Hopkins
    RB: CJ Spiller, Joique Bell, David Wilson, Knowshon Moreno, Giovani Bernard
    TE: Graham

      Could drop Hopkins but there’s no one sale right now you should.

    a week after they barely used him, it’s looking bad that i benched t-gon to play daniels over him. that’s 8.8 pts so far to the bad.

      Sky says:

      Ouch. Well I don’t have any shares of him so I hope he stops for you so you stop feeling so conflicted!

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Sky: i didn’t target him in draft he just fell really low, as did daniels who i backed him up with (age concerns with tony). could’ve gone 2-2 had i played him.
