Don't be shellfish...Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on Reddit

Now I think there’s been enough touting of Keenan Allen around the world that I’m not gonna make any claims to being the first to get you in on this action.  But just in case, I will point out my sage Sunday advice from two weeks ago here.  At first I thought I’d mentioned him in a buy/sell up to that point or at least a writeup but…nope.  I didn’t even really talk about him in the writeup that Sunday.  Snoozing at the wheel, apparently, or perhaps I talked about him so much in comments I assumed I’d already mentioned it.  Well whatever the case, owners coming into tonight’s MNF game were rewarded for either their draft day patience or their waiver wire savant ways as Allen went off.  After a 9 catch 107 yard night that was capped off by a 22 yard touchdown (and a later RZ target) to go with 12 targets overall, it’s safe to say the battle in Chargers country for #1 target not named Gates went to Allen.  I really thought it would go to Vincent but hey, I’m no Rivers over here.  Allen adjusts to the ball well and makes the job of the QB easy.  That’s what I liked when I tweeted about him and that’s clearly what Philip likes about him.  I’m not gonna fight it.  With DX and Floyd out, someone had to step up in San Diego and it looks like it’s time to go all-in on Allen.  In other news from MNF for the 2013 Fantasy Football season…

Andrew Luck – He looked fine.  So did his passes.  Apparently his receivers didn’t think so.  So many bad, drive-killing drops.  Only so much you can do when everyone around you plays like their Greg Little.  Tack on the late INT and I’m pretty sure Luck’s end line was about 1/3rd of what everyone expected from him against this Chargers defense.

Darrius Heyward-Bey – Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking ‘DHB’ is simply an acronym for his name.  It really means ‘Drops His Balls’.  Yes, Colts fans, this is the guy that was getting snaps over TY to start the year.  You know who to blame.

Ryan Mathews – Despite the bone-headed run out of bounds late when they were trying to run out the clock, Mathews showed up big on Monday, rushing for 102 yards on 22 carries.  Quietly useful so far this year is how best I’d describe Mathews.  Which is better than being a mime in a singing competition.  That’s just being quietly useless.

Philip Rivers – If I haven’t said it yet in this write up – clearly I should read some of this before I post it if I’m asking this question aloud – it was a weird night.  Luck provides the lone turnover on the night and Rivers seriously had 3 passes that should’ve been INTs.  Extremely errant throws here.  Maybe that’s why they weren’t intercepted: literally no one was near where he threw it.  His end line wasn’t exciting with 237 yards and a TD but he did provide us with more Rivers face.  Always a crowd pleaser when he adds another derp image for our google searches.  Some say it was about the victory he was so pumped.  I’m calling it was about his 7th kid.  He goes and has that many and complains about his protection…c’mon man!

Randall Cobb – Out 6 to 8 weeks with a knee injury.  The original report was ‘multiple weeks’ from McCarthy.  Multiples of what, Mike?  We’re not all math majors around here.  I bring this info to you as you need to do what you need to do when it comes to injury issues.  I’d say he’s droppable in many formats with that timeline.  I say this knowing Keenan Allen is only owned in like 35% of yahoo leagues.  Wanna know what that smell is?  That’s the food I’m giving to you for your thought.

Trent Richardson – Looked both good and bad tonight.  Not gonna lie, my buy call didn’t smell right tonight.  Tough seeing Donald Brown this involved when an offense goes out and buys your guy for a 1st round pick.  The minuses were his early runs but his pluses were seeing the Colts FINALLY throw him the ball.  His catch for 13 yards looked like T-Rich of old.  Hey Indy, DHB keeps dropping passes and you have this guy you traded for who’s not half bad out of the backfield getting the ball in open space.  Just throwing that out there…just in case you didn’t know it…cuz clearly you don’t…all this to say, I’m not being obstinate about my T-Rich buy call but I will say that if the Colts want to succeed with him involved, they’ve gotta start making wiser decisions on how they use him to get their worth out of the deal.

Danny Woodhead – The little Woodhead that could gave you 83 total yards and 5 receptions to PPR enthusiasts.  Meanwhile, Brady keeps throwing to the ghost of Danny and Wes and wondering why no one is catching it.  Bee-tee-dubs, this is what Woodhead looks like for those who simply watch the box score the next morning.  Some players look fierce.  Others look mean.  Danny just looks adorable.  Think I’m gonna have to start calling him ‘The Beav’.  If anyone in this jaded age could bring back the term ‘gee willickers!’, it’s Danny boy.

  6. the imp says:
    (link)

    Thanks for the read. Cobb’s 6-8 week timeline doesn’t quite read as definitive yet to my eyes, but probably just wishful thinking that it would be anything less. I hope the Packers are forced to be more definitive in time for the waivers tonight since I don’t think they’ve even disclosed the injury yet.
    No elan for Elam is my team’s nickname for the week.

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @the imp: Getting real, if Cobb is out 6-8, I’m going to have to drop him. Who would you drop Cobb : Randle, MiFloyd or Boykin?
      Boykin had some bad drops, but if he could settle in he could get 3rd or 4th helpings in GB. Randle is in the same boat, unless Nicks is traded, then he would go way up.
      MiFloyd gets better target numbers, but hasn’t done much with them yet.
      This WR would probably play 3 of the next 4 weeks, so I’m looking for some stability. However, once I get ‘Dola back, I’ll try to switch over to Harvin. Maybe, I just go week-by-week for matchups.
      Any suggestions?

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

        @the imp:

        I’m a Cobb owner and if I were you, I’d hold on dropping him as long as you can. Adam Schefter reported the Packers expect him to miss 2 weeks. McCarthy, who is usually forthcoming about injuries, said “multiple weeks” which is consistent with that. The only “source” this 6-8 week time period comes from is one that supposedly contacted the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and there’s nothing else behind it so it’s HIGHLY questionable at best. No NFL source, no source close to the Packers, nothing. I wouldn’t get hasty if you don’t have to. For all we know, it could be Donald Driver looking to get a call :)

        • the imp says:
          (link)

          @Clint (aka Pablo Death): Thanks for reinforcing this notion. I don’t think anybody on the wire is a difference maker right now, so a hold makes sense.

    Glad I got in on Allen last week for free and started him. He won my matchup this week.

    Anyway.

    I have #2 waiver slot and 2 RB available for my injured Murray. Which should be first Jacobs or Randle?

    • Principle Blackman says:
      (link)

      @Rob: When Murray went down I thought I had you for sure. I figured that Romo would just keep finding Witten since there was no one out of the backfield that he could check down to. That’s obviously not what happened. My team is capital-B Bad tough, or I’m just captial-B Bad at fake football. Either way, the result is the same. Way to pull it out on Monday with Allen.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      If Jacob practices its him. Don’t trust the set up in Dallas to anoint Randle

    • Sky

      Sounds like Cox is the man to own in NYG

  9. Cram It says:
    (link)

    Looks like Michael Cox is the guy to own in NY right now. Would you rather him or whoever is going for Dallas this week? Just for this week hopefully, as Murray’s looking to return next week. 14 teamer and these guys will be gobbled up with waivers but I have priority. Not even sure it’s worth using on them if I could squeeze by with Snelling at my flex week 7….hrmph

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: Screw it. That Dallas backfield is a mess. Who knows who’ll get the call or how many touches they’ll split. I’ll just go after Cox. Thanks!

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Cram It: According to Jerry Jones, Dunbar isn’t in the picture, so not quite as messy personnel wise as it could be, but it is pretty clear they are going to sling, not run, the ball most of the time.

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @the imp: Word. I imagine Romo will throw the ball 50 times. I don’t know what Randle’s game is, if he’ll be involved in the passing game, a bruiser, etc. Maybe Tanner gets goal line carries. Hell if I know. Cox seems safer.

  13. Steve Stevenson says:

    Start 3 WR, 2 RB, no flex, standard scoring w/ bonus, lost Cobb and am 2-4. Last week rejected getting Hilton for L. Bell. My WR are now Nicks, Allen, Randle, T. Williams, Sanders. RB are Shady, Rice/Pierce, Bell, McGahee, Stacy. Make the Bell deal now, aim higher, or hold? FA options are Boykin, Durham, Douglas and hitting myself in the face with an F’ing brick.

    • Cram It says:

      @Steve Stevenson: Hilton’s as much of a crapshoot as any of your 3rd receivers. I’d hold or at least aim for a higher WR.

    Sky, what’s your suggestion on David Wilson? Latest says 3-4 weeks which’ll put him right when Brown comes back. I have both with Brown in my IR spot and Jacobs is available in my league as of now. Whoever wound up getting the most carries out of this bunch could be my RB3/RB4 (depending on how much you value MJD at this point) the rest of the way in my PPR league.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Clint (aka Pablo Death): Ooph, I wouldn’t want 3 parts of the Giants backfield. I think you have to hold and hope one or the other pops here soon. Can’t drop MJD for Jacobs in my book.

    Sky

    We’ve discussed this team after every heartbreaking loss…now 1-5
    0.5 ppr

    RB – Moreno, Spiller, Jones-Drew, Stacy, Stewart, Ball
    WR – Cobb, Garcon, Smith, Brown, Broyles, Harvin
    TE – Graham, Gronk

    This team might be fine Weeks 14-16, but I ain’t going to be in the playoffs by then. I need to take the Veruca Salt approach. I’ve offered the top 2 teams in the league offers for Cobb. If that doesn’t work, what might you’re suggestion be?

    • Scott says:
      (link)

      @Scott: @Scott: P.S. This is a 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, FLEX (R/W/T) lineup

      • Cram It says:

      Move Graham for a WR upgrade. Drop Broyles for TE help until Gronk is back.

      • Scott says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thought was Cobb won’t be back til Week 12 at the earliest. Owner that is 5-1 has Megatron, Cruz, Gordon, Blackmon, Thompkins, & Keenan Allen. I’m selling him on the fact that he has enough depth to give up Gordon or Blackmon to upgrade to Cobb when he returns. Selling on the fact that this move could put them over the top. Asking for a RB in addition. Same story being sold to 6-0 team who has DeSean, Jordy, Welker, and Emmanuel. I know it’s probably not an ideal trade for those teams, but not all fantasy owners read articles on razzball. Not all trades are made with rational thinking.

        • Sky

    So I was shooting for a 2 for 1 deal and this is what I finally came up with:

    I give – Spiller/FJax
    I get – Sproles

    I know I overpaid, but Spiller is really starting to worry me and I needed a spare slot to pick up a defense. Shallow league and here’s my team now:

    QB – Stafford
    WR – Green
    WR – Dez
    WR – Garcon
    RB – Forte
    RB – Bernard
    TE – Black Unicorn
    W/R – Decker
    W/R/T – Gordon
    BN – R.Wilson
    BN – James T. Graham
    BN – Sproles
    BN – CJnoK
    BN – Ellington
    BN – Harvin
    IR – A.Brown

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

    Think that deal was a’ight?

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Not really digging that deal

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I know I overpaid for sure, but no one was biting on anything. I sent everything under the sun to 6 different teams in the league. I even got a flat “I’m not trading with you because we’re too close in the standings” from one guy. I was also starting to get worried that this might be a lost season for Spiller, and who can you actually trust to put in your lineup between him and Jackson? I feel like with my overall team, it didn’t hurt me, and gave me a good flex option in Sproles to fill in during some BYE weeks coming up.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I agree it won’t hurt you overall. Sproles is a good guy to own in a PPR. Just might be one that comes back to haunt you if/when Spiller gets rolling.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: oh yeah, if he does, I’ll be kicking myself. But I think my core squad is pretty tough and I’m really only playing 2 RBs/week – might be a BYE week or two that has me playing 3 RBs – so as long as I have two healthy guys that can produce 10+ points/week I’m happy.

            At this point I just couldn’t trust Spiller or Jackson on a weekly basis. Never knew who to start or if either should even be in the lineup. It was a headache I’m actually glad to be rid of. Not glad I gave up Moreno to get that headache, but I’ll take Sproles and hope Ellington can keep it up in ‘Zona.

    Which defense are you going with this week:

    SD @ Jax
    Min @ NYG
    NE @ NYJ
    Car v. STL
    Mia v. Buf

    Our league doesn’t count special teams and returns (we count return yards and TDs by the player) so it’s strictly defense.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Carolina’s DEF has looked pretty solid, but I can’t help but think that SD and NE might put up some sick numbers as well. They’ll all three be there in a few days because everyone else has a DEF, I’m just currently rolling without one and now have that open spot after the trade.

            (link)

            @Sky: yeah, good point. Didn’t really look at it that way. Right now I’m struggling between Carolina and San Diego, really. But Jax has actually looked DECENT lately and not like San Diego has put up good numbers. Carolina has been boring but solid all season.

              Sky says:

              Yeah, like the Panthers overall. Something about playing away can make for some early dynamics in the game that go wrong from the away team. Still, they’re all good plays, just like Carolina the most.

    I have Brees on bye this week. Do I use my number 4 waiver on Nick Foles? Or should I gamble and hope no one grabs him and then pick him up in FA? If he goes there’s QB’s out there like Weeden Alex Smith Big Ben Flacco Henne. Is it worth using a waiver for Foles here?

    Thanks for the Keenan Allen call. He was on my bench this week but it wouldn’t have mattered. Trying to improve my 2-4 team, yay most points scored against and injuries!

    I give Rice for Megatron? Johnson’s injured but BAL doesn’t look great and their schedule looks unfavorable. The Staff/Johnson hookup seems worth it and frankly I’m almost out of it. At least trading is fun!

    MyQB: Stafford
    MyRB: Rice, CJ2K, Sproles, Woodhead, Ryan Matthews, David Wilson
    MyWR: Gordon, Shorts, JamesJones, Keenan Allen

    fitzgerald, jordy and gordon at wr (start 3)

    Good Tues to you Sky.
    PPR. Would you play Keenan over Jordy Nelson this week? Jordy is going up against Hayden and the Browns, while Keenan has a walk in the park against the Jags. I have a feeling with Jordy being one of the few men standing in that offense he’ll be heavily defended by Hayden and possibly doubled at times. I feel like Keenan will at least get 5 rec 60yds and a TD this week as his floor.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Oooph, that’s pretty ballsy. Hard to think that Jordy doesn’t turn that huge target volume into something. That said, I haven’t begun ranking/reviewing this week. I think your stance is solid but lets revisit this Thursday.

    What’s your view on Boykin?

    Do you see Tim wright or Jordan reed turning into te1s?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You can do that. Boykin will see 3rd and 4th option in that offense. THe volume will be decent but he’s nothing special.

      Reed is possible, not Wright. Reed’s floor is good, wouldn’t say he’s got a high ceiling though.

    • PeanutButterJelllyTime says:
      (link)

      @Sandy: Get Randle. Boldin’s snaps have greatly reduced. Ridley’s the main man again.
      Take a flier on Boykin if you have the bench depth. Remember James Jones will more than likely be back next week, so Boykin will only be used in 3 wide sets and will go through some growing pains.
      Jordan Reed has back end TE1 upside. He’s compared to the skill set of Aaron Hernandez. With RGIII’s lack of receiving options he will likely be the number 2 passing option behind Garcon. If RGIII can get it going he has some definite TE1 upside. Wright has some upside as well, but I think will be far more inconsistent than J. Reed.

    Thanks for the tip on Allen! Got me 24 pts this week on a flex gamble. Schwing!

    Can you weigh in on this trade in a .5 ppr: his Fitzgerald and Finley for my Lacy and Olsen? Fitz has a bye and is matched up against Seattle this week. Both he and Lacy have injury issues. But overall I kinda like it. My WRs are Shorts, Nicks, ALLEN!, Jennings and RBs are Forte, Lacy, MJD, BJE. Thanks!

      Interesting move…I don’t know if I’m that thrilled about it even though it would improve your WR set up nicely. I’m not a huge Finley guy even with an expected increase in targets with Cobb out. I’d probably hold there.

      • Paul says:
        (link)

        @Sky: True, I guess I bought into the Finley hype a little. So Fitzgerald for Lacy ain’t so hot? (Even .5PPR)

    If Cobb isn’t out forever, I need to make a trade to free up a roster spot for a fill-in WR to play until ‘Dola is back. My best idea is to try to trade MJD for a TE from a team with 2 decent ones…how far down the following list would you be willing to go with MJD?
    These are the TEs I can try to get: Gonzalez/VDavis/Finley/Olsen/Bennett/HMiller
    These are the TEs on waivers: Reed, TWright, Rudolph
    This is my 1Q/2R/3W 12 team PPR squad:
    RG3/Vick
    Foster/Forte/Ellington/MJD

    Fleener

    Thanks for dealing with my complex question.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Sounds like you should just pick up Reed. Similar to Heath Miller in my book.

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I hear you re: TE pickup…but I’d still be without a playable WR3 (assuming ‘Dola out, Cobb worth holding) for week 7.
        The idea is to use MJD as a (albeit weak) trade chip to get something permanent instead of having to drop him (or Vick…) to avoid the zero for a one-week pickup.
        I know I’m overthinking without more news about Amendola and Cobb, but the few trades that happen in our league have to happen early in the week to allow legal lineups by Th.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Unless you’re getting a better player than Reed (I see him as a Heath Miller type) then the trade still doesn’t make sense to me. I’d be looking to drop Cobb, I’m pretty much certain he’s missing 6-8 weeks at this point.

          • the imp says:

    Wright, Reed, Clark, Fleener, Fauria, Chandler

    First of all. Thanks for the Allen tip. I thought WR3 was my weak spot on my team but now with Allen and Douglas it could be a strength.

    QB: RG3
    RB: A Peterson, D Martin, G Bernard, S Vereen
    WR: V Cruz, J Nelson, K Allen, H Douglas, J Edelman, K Thompkins, D Hopkins
    TE: J Cameron, C Clay

    Ive got a strong 5-1 team but need some advice on how to improve my team.

    Should I trade for Calvin Johnson (owner lost Julio and B Powell)

    or

    Should I trade for Peyton Manning (owner lost Demarco and S Jax and P Thomas on Bye)

    In both trades I would have to include Bernard. I dont know if having the depth of Gio on the bench is better than improving my starting line up and having the best overall starting team. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

    Have a question about trying to improve my team via trade or if I should just stay put.
    Currently 6-0 and 1st place in league.

    12-team league PPR custom league w/ 5 point bonuses @ (100, 125, 150) for rushing/receiving and (300, 350, 400) for passing. Lineup is QB, WR, WR, RB, TE, W/R, W/R/T

    Team:

    QB – Brees, E. Manning

    WR – Marshall, A. Johnson, Nelson, Douglas, Hopkins

    RB – Charles, Lacy, Ellington, Stacy

    TE – Cameron, Finely

    D/ST – Carolina (spot start my defenses)

    Now my question is should I try to move a combination of Johnson or Nelson paired with Stacy or Ellington to get a high-end RB2 for my other flex spot ? Cause right now I’m starting Marshall Nelson at WR and Andre Johnson n Lacy at my flex spots. I just don’t like having three WR in my lineup, even though they’re studs, because of the possible week-to-week inconsistencies that come with that position. I know my depth would take a hit at WR and if one of my two starters went down I’d be kicking myself, but Douglas would at least get 8-10 targets a game if (knock on wood) any injuries happened.

    I already have a verbal trade agreement, just haven’t sent it out yet, that’s A. Johnson and Z. Stacy for Doug Martin. What are your thoughts ? I just want my last flex spot to consistently get 20+ points (for perspective on scoring Martin projected to get 24 against ATL) and I believe Martin will get me that more consistent week to week than Johnson. Should I do the trade or trade for another RB like : Gore, Moreno, Rice, McFadden, Ridley ? All the teams they’re on have injuries at WR (Julio and Cobb) so I’d think they be willing to trade. Thanks for your time!!

    I’m stacked at WR in PPR but could use a better RB2, a better TE, and a better QB. If I was to package Allen and Chris Johnson, what kind of RB should I target? My current QB is RG3, TE’s are Miller and Olsen. Package Allen with one of those for a TE or QB?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

    Why am I holding on to Gold plated Tate? He’s my WR 6. 14 team league. Looking to jump the gun and pick up the Titan’s D before someone else does. Was going to stash them until after their bye (week 8) then dump STL. . Either that or scoop up Rudolph or Reed for Cameron’s back up. I know you don’t like backups at QB nevermind TE or DEF but it’s deep. No one out there. Also,it’s $10 a move so I try to limit them where I can. That’s why I’m leaning towards TEN. It’ll be $10 and I’ll have them ROS. Thoughts?

        @Sky: need a qb for Brees’s bye…

          Rivers

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Sky: that’s a shallow league if rivers is out there, and even then i guarantee there’s worse guys that are rostered, unless nobody’s team has any backups.

    Sky,

    I know you hate having 2 TEs in a 10 team std league but I have picked Jordan reed or Garrett Graham last week as a bye for Gonzalez in few leagues.Both got good reviews do you think I should drop them or keep them hoping to trade them in few weeks.

    Regards

    Jagan

      That depends who you’re dropping them for. If someone out there has more value over them, I don’t mind a drop.

    Drop Hartline for Allen? .5 ppr

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      For the upside of it, yes

    M. Bennett and McGhee for gronk? Ppr

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d take Gronk at that price

      • harbinger says:
        (link)

        @Sky: he countered with Bennett and ellington, still pull the trigger?

        • Sky

          @harbinger: Yeah, still like him there.

    Hello sky

    Should I drop Stevie johnson for Keenan allen or blackmon? He has been injured and underperforming. Another option is harvin.

    • Chicken Dinner says:
      (link)

      @Zar: Drop both and pick up both. QUICKLY!

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Chicken Dinner: surprised blackmon was out there at all after his first week.

        • Zar says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I think they thought fluke. Plus it is Jacksonville . Would you drop edelman for Keenan?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d want both Blackmon there. I’d pick up Allen over Harvin too

  61. Kevin says:

    Who’s a better waiver pickup,
    jacquizz or joe randle

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: Both are short term pickups in my book. I’ll take a chance with Randle there.

  62. Sandy says:
    (link)

    My wide receivers are Calvin, Steve smith, Steve Johnson, Ty Hilton, Keenan Allen and kenbrell
    It’s a std league with guys like Stephen hill, marlon brown, LaFell, kerley, Gibson, Boykin, Durham…. on the waiver wire
    I only start 2 wrs and a flex sometimes with wr
    Seems to me like I have a wr1 and a bunch of wr3s. Would you try to trade some of that depth away for a stud wr? Or hold as is?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Sandy: Yeah, that would make a lot of sense for you.

  63. Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
    (link)

    in a non-PPR where we start 2 WR/2RB/1 flex (non-TE) with this roster (so a lot of RB depth), esp for 14 team league
    luck/pryor
    peterson/MJD/wilson (still holding for now)/woodhead/bolden/stacy
    jeffery/k.allen/amendola (if this injury is long time I likely need another WR)/givens/
    cook

    1. drop anybody (likely givens or a RB, but don’t like dropping RB, and if not for Ridley being used that much wouldnt’ even think of dropping bolden) for 1 or more of T.williams/m.williams/ginn?
    2. keep cook or drop for rudolph

    even though this team looks much worse than my “worst” teams (1-5 and 2-4 teams) this roster is somehow 4-2. It’s a 14 teamer so maybe more believeable but my 2nd and 3rd round picks were MJD and Wilson.

  64. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    after picking up v.brown over allen one day before allen was picked up am i still better of with
    v.brown over
    g.graham/bennett/randle/m.brown/wright/fauria/rudolph. TE and WR same thing. non PPR.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: this is bench WR/TE due to already having blackmon/dez/hilton/nicks/floyd/harvin.

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: Yeah, I think he’ll still be involved moving forward. It wasn’t the best night for passing for SD overall but he’s now looking like the 3rd option on that offense.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Sky: ok, and i guess he’ll be the guy dropped whenever harvin’s back, independent of other long term injuries to one of those other guys.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            @goodfold2: Makes sense right now.

  65. Frank White says:

    Hey Man… Do you think Boykin is going to be a good pickup?? Would you drop Stevie Johnson for him??

    What’s up, appreciate your advice. 12 team .5ppr 15 week season no playoffs

    QB- PManning, Wilson
    RB- Martin, Richardson, Ridley, quizz Rodgers, bolden
    WR- Dez, DThomas, Mike Wallace, Alshon Jefferey, Kendall wright, randle, K.Allen
    TE- martellus Bennett

    had an offer of Torrey Smith for MY Quizz Rodgers (Sjax owner) and Rueben Randle. I got a little greedy and went for more. He came back with Wes Welker for MY Ridley and Randle. Would you accept either? I think that i give up less for torrey smith but welker is obviously better. is it a good sell high for ridley or just press for the initial offer of Smith for quizz/randle?

    Thanks

      @timmy riggins: The first trade was a complete win for you. Surprised you didn’t take it. I’d want that back if I can get it.

      • timmy riggins says:

        @Sky: i got greedy, they are 3-3 and crapping their pants….

        have an offer of forte for trich or martin and wallace? worth doing? wouldve been great to have torrey smith….

        thanks again

    Kendall hunter over bolden? Standard league

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Assuming this is bench depth/upside? Sure. If you need points now – even if they’re minimal – Bolden.

  69. Ron says:

    Thanks for answering my Big Ben, Eli, Foles,Tannenhill question earlier. Im going to stick with Big Ben but I have a waiver situation that needs some clarification.

    Currently I own Big Ben and Eli. Should I drop Eli for Foles or Tannenhill?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Foles for upside of Eagles offense and hope he holds the starting gig.

  70. Big League Choo says:
    (link)

    drop vick for foles? 6pts for td pass so vick’s rushing is more negligible

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

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

      • Big League Choo says:
        (link)

        @Sky: No we have a short 5 man bench. i dont have anyone worse to drop

      Sure, if it doesn’t hurt your overall team, go for it

      • Zandy says:

        @Sky: I’d have Brees AP Lamar Calvin Witten locked in with Stacey, Keenan, Steve smith, kenbrell, Ellington and those bench mobbers
        How’s that sound?

        • Sky

          Yup, sounds good

          • Zandy says:

            @Sky: alternatively would you deal sproles and mcgahee for spiller? Or too risky?

              Sky says:

              • Zandy says:
                (link)

                @Sky: on the wr side SteveSmith tyhilton And kenbrell for Brandon Marshall and garbage?

                Or target 2 for 1s and wr in the 10-20 range instead of top 5?

                • Sky

                  Sky says:
                  (link)

                  Can try. Still surprised if any of these 3-1 types go through. Unless the owner doesn’t know what they’re doing, they’re clear wins for the person getting the star player.

                  • Zandy says:
                    (link)

                    @Sky: agreed the reason why it’s so many for one is some of these guys have horrible depth and passively managed rosters – Julio jones on the bench type stuff and carrying two kickers both past their byes

                    • Sky

                      Sky says:
                      (link)

                      Well I’d argue if they’re doing that then they’re not paying any attention and a trade isn’t going to change that but I wish you luck.

    i’m attempting to drop snelling (backup RB on my team) for wilson makes sense, but does dropping him for jacobs or cox make sense? if both of them these 2 which is first in order?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d rather keep Snelling there. He’s the starter until SJax is back and has performed fine.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: even over Wilson and his crazy upside?Snelling has performed fine but he gets less work than jacquizz. jacobs and likely cox do suck, and or will lose jobs to either wilson and/or brown later anyway.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I don’t trust that Wilson is the sole starter once back. Andre Brown will be returning around the same time. Think it’s a moot point.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Sky: i know that wilson is likely to split but at least he’ll be a talented guy splitting #1 when he’s back. snelling will be a lesser talented guy who’s not even guaranteed #2. the difference obv that snelling gets those extra weeks and gets value from them. Those are the weeks i (hopefully) wouldn’t need to care about, unless martin/gio/mathews all get hurt.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              If you want upside for later, it’s fine. If you need value now, I’d say it’s Snelling.

    Trade vereen for one of the following? .5 PPR Stacy/clay/quiz/Joe randle
    Based on first look I’m thinking Stacy but I’m 1-5 and desperately need to win out to make the playoffs. Clay would let me play matchups with cook (or just sit him weekly) and if an rb was traded to me they’d be for week 8 because of forte’s bye (Stacy vs sea) (quiz @ ari) (randle vs Detroit) thanks for your input
    Qb – Brady
    Wr – Tron
    Wr – dez
    Rb – forte
    Rb – l bell
    Te – cook
    Flex – decker
    Bench – Bryce brown, vereen, Brandon bolden, ivory, rueben randle

    League 1:
    Car vs STL (probably best)

  75. Steve Stevenson says:

    1-5, need a win this week, have #1 waiver in 0.5 PPR. So I could grab Jacobs or Randle, either of whom might start at RB2 over L. Bell/L. Miller (Sproles on bye), or at flex if Megatron sits or is limited. OR I could pick up Foles to start over Wilson. I know Foles isn’t the ideal #1 waiver claim, but does he give me the most additional pts this week? Also, is your first drop Amendola or Pryor?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Surprised those would be your only two drops; I really like both ROS if ‘dola can get it going. Think Foles offers the highest upside this week between him and Jacobs. Think I’d be more inclined to drop Wilson for Foles and ride with what you’ve got at RB.

    Sky,

    Like either of these offers in my .5 ppr 10 team league:

    1. My T-Rich & Cameron for Gio B & Colston
    2. My T-Rich & RG3 for Gio B & Colston
    3. My T-RIch for J Bell & Colston (drop Hartline)

    My other QB is Rivers (start 1), my other TE is Gronk (start 1), my other receivers are D Thomas/Nicks/A Brown (start 2 + flex) and my other RBs are Charles/McG/Stacy/Ellington (start 2 + flex)

    Like Colston’s upside and really not liking where T-Rich is shaking out…

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      2 is ok because you have Rivers. Not really loving these trades, though, overall.

  79. Ian says:
    (link)

    How would you rank the following “stash” guys for the rest of the season? Not looking for an immediate starter, just someone who could be a difference maker down the line:

    Harvin, Vereen, Andre Brown, JStew

    • Ian says:
      (link)

      @Ian: Also, add Amendola to that list, seeing as he’s injured again.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Think you ranked them appropriately. I’d can put ‘dola ahead of Brown there.
