The narrative of tonight’s game would best be read in a Sam Elliott voice.  No, I’m not talking about those crappy Dodge commercials.  No again, I’m not talking about his turn as the Chupadogra in Marmaduke.  How’d you even know he was that without Wikipedia anyways?  Nah, I’m rocking The Big Lebowski on this one and going with ‘The Stranger’.  Sometimes there’s a man…I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about Peyton Hillis here.  Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s Hillis, in New Jersey.  And even if he’s a lazy man – and Hillis was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in Bergen County, which would place him high in the runnin’ back world for laziest worldwide. But sometimes there’s a man…sometimes, there’s a man…Aw, I lost my train of thought here.  But what I do know is on a night rife with Fantasy futility, the the bridge to a winning week was brought down by the unlikeliest of guys on a night of the unlikeliest suckitude we’ve seen in prime time so far this year.  Hillis gave us his best Hynoski impersonation for most of the night as he rumbled for 81 tough yards and a touchdown to help hold down the first win of the NFL season for his beleaguered team mates.  Indeed, sometimes there’s a man…who doesn’t really matter and will never be heard from again.  You can call Peyton Hillis the dude and I’m just fine with that.  But he’s not the capitalized ‘Dude’.  He’s some schmo that stumbled onto an 0-6 team and whose lead back for the week got hurt and needed a spark for the night and he was it.  And with this narrative, I fully expect the first question to be ‘should I pick up Hillis’ because I’ve trained you all well in the art of snark.  Good lord, this game was terrible.  Thank you, voice of Sam Elliott in my head, for making it palpable.  In other 2013 Fantasy Football news…

Ben Tate – Yeah, the night was so exciting I’m spending this post talking about injuries.  Apparently, Tate broke four ribs but says he’ll be ready to play after the bye.  I asked Mr. Owl after he was done with his tootsie pop how many broken ribs it took to sit a running back and he still said uh-one, uh-two-HOO, uh-thuree and made a crunchy noise.  Oddly, I trust his judgement over Tates at this point, though.

Josh Freeman – I’m not gonna lie and say he looked great.  He didn’t.  What he did look like was a guy adjusting to a new offense and who probably wasn’t ready to start.  I’m pretty sure Bob Uecker called about 70% of his pass plays on the night.  He threw it high, he threw it wide, he threw it out of bounds and rarely did he connect with a receiver and when he did, it would get dropped in the end zone (thanks Jerome Simpson for ruining my fantasy night, BTW).  In the end, I still like Freeman overall for the Vikings but it’s clear he wasn’t ready to be running this team tonight.

Reggie Wayne – Done for the year with a torn ACL.  A lot of the news is going to say it bumps DHB up in Indy to which I say ‘nah, bruh’ and I advise you to start peppering your league mates with TY Hilton trades now…what, you’re still here?  What part of ‘now’ did you not get?  Go!

Hakeem Nicks – I mentioned yesterday I thought the trade rumors around Josh Gordon were getting to him.  Tonight seemed like a ‘I don’t wanna get hurt for fear of getting stuck on this terrible team ROS’ as he pulled himself out with a ‘finger ailment’.  Pretty sure it happened while flipping off everyone making trade rumors about him.  Or maybe he hurt it dialing up Jim Irsay.  I hear he trades 1st round picks for almost nothing these days!  But for serious, I saw a lot of give up on plays from Hakeem tonight.  He either wants to be traded or doesn’t care or both.  Funny how his sentiment mirrors his fantasy owners this year.  Warning, #HumbleBrag commencing in three, two, one…go!  Oh, I forgot the humble part I guess…well, read the sleepers in that post and you’ll find’um!

Rueben Randle – Made an amazing TD catch but finished the night with just 3/40/1 and a fumble.  Not his best night during his TD streak but with catches like that, he may very well be on for many more good nights to come if Hakeem is traded.

Adrian Peterson – I can imagine AP sitting in the backfield wishing he was staring at Ponder’s backside tonight and not Freeman’s.  I think you misread that sentence.  My statement was purely sexual.  All-Day clearly couldn’t pass the AP exam like Hillis did with only 56 total yards but that won’t change the tangent that I bring to you: Phil Mushnick is probably one of the worst human beings on the planet.  Spread the word.  I won’t give you the link.  That shouldn’t be spread.

Eli Manning – Well, he didn’t throw 2.5 INTs tonight to stay on his crazy pace – though he really tried to give the Minny secondary a nice Hand Schaub on Sherels drop – so I guess that’s progress.  Eh, he still looked like Eli out there.  Not sure what else to say.  Manning Face?  Dude, where’s my car!

Michael Cox – I had a ‘Cox in your end zone’ joke here but Michael fumbled it.  Seriously, Coughlin lets Hillis lose a fumble but the moment Michael fumbles, he gets the David Wilson treatment.  Tom, your face looks like a Baboon’s ass with how red it is and the way you treat your players is starting to resemble it as well.  I hear Florida has a great retirement community for crusty, old badgers like yourself.  Just throwing it out there.

Marcus Sherels – It’s come to me talking about defense and special teams.  Had a kick return for a touchdown.  Also dropped a near pick-6 and then on the subsequent play, fumbled the punt return on which the Giants scored the Hillis TD.  From #GOAT, to goat to Taylor Swift.  We need a ‘this game was so bad’ comments joke toast like ‘yo mama’ jokes of old.  I’m literally talking about D/ST here people and ending the post with it.

    Obviously this is early, but I gotta pick a flex for this week so I’ll toss it out now:

    Gordon @ KC
    Ridley v. Miami
    Harvin @ STL (obviously depends on status, but it is the Monday game so I doubt we’ll know in time for this week)
    Reed @ Denver (if Graham is active, he’ll be available, if Graham is out, he’s my starting TE)

    0.5 PPR, 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving and 100 yards rushing, 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving and 150 yards rushing, 6 points per TD

    FWIW, I have Gordon in there now.

    • Yeshcheese says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Reed, Ridley, Harvin (even if he starts I don’t expect a feature role), Gordon. I’m sorry but Gordon can’t throw it to himself, arrowhead is brutal, and KC has the fire

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: YesCheese has a point but I’d have Gordon as my #2 and Reed as my #1 there so if Graham’s down, you know how I’d roll.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I was leaning Reed or Ridley. Gordon worries me that he is boom or bust. Ridley looks to be at least consistently mediocre.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I don’t set my lineups expecting 5-7 points from a guy, especially talking flex. I’d rather have an 18 or 2 guy if that’s my option.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: well said. And I can see that. This is a league with a lot of roster spots, so constant production isn’t a bad thing, but I can see it. I still killed it last week with him getting 3.5 points in the flex.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Ha, nice. Yeah, I’m not saying Gordon is the safest play but at least I trust his role more than I do Ridley. That’s the big thing for me.

              • Wilsonian says:
                (link)

                @Sky: and by killed it I mean I won by 100 points. This team, even being in an 8 team league, is insane. Especially after I swapped Harry Douglas for Ridley after his big game last week.

      @Chris: ROS or for the week? Without matchups, I’m a bit lost. I really like Chris Ivory still, talent-wise. James is the safer play. Hillis is meh.

    I’m currently sitting at 3-4 in a 12 team keeper league that only sends 4 teams to the playoffs so, while I’m still in it, I’m starting to think about next year.

    QB – RG3
    WR – Green
    WR – Allen
    WR – Hartline
    RB – Morris
    RB – Rice
    TE – Gronk
    W/R – Lacy
    B – Pryor qb
    B – Stacy rb
    B – Randle rb
    B – Stevie Johnson wr
    B – Dobson wr
    B – Jordan Reed te

    I’m thinking my biggest issue is WR and I can only play one TE at a time. Should I look to trade Gronk or Reed? What tier of WR should I look to target in exchange for either?

    Thanks!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: Gronk you shouldn’t be getting anything less than Victor Cruz in return. He’s your trade guy. I like Reed but he’s only had one game. His market isn’t going to get you what you need in return.

    Had Jacobs in my Flex up until Saturday night. Moved Cox in and picked up Hillis, Monday morning (down by 15) read that Hillis would be the primary ball carrier and put him in. 20 minutes before the game I read that Cox is starting and figure well “he’s been in the system for months and Hillis has 5 days off the street” put in Cox. It was the difference between a win and first place and a loss and 3rd. In the words of Clay Davis Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit.

    So, Schiano says Martin may not be done for the season. Drop him anyway? I’m already having to hide Cutler for a few weeks and likely slide Cobb into my IR spot once Andre Brown comes off in a few weeks. Only RB’s out there are James and Ivory IF I can snag one.

    I’m back again with the great QB debate of 2013 for me. I am so scared of Eli and Big Ben from week to week it sickens me. Need to know if a trade or waiver pickup is best.

    1) Should I trade Gordon or Garcon or neither for RGIII? My other WR are Dez, Green and Hartline.
    2) The other option is….Jake Locker is on the wire and I could drop M. Austin for him.
    3) Any other QBs I should chase for a trade? Dalton? Rivers? Pryor? Geno?

    Your thoughts/suggestions?
    Thanks.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Ron:

      1) Sure, I’m open to either in that scenario; prefer it be Gordon for bye week reasons

      2) I’d do this either way. Locker’s legs give him a great floor and Austin is slowly losing targets

      3) There’s always QBs to trade for, it’s more about price than anything

      Is Locker really the only starting QB on the FA market? I think you should play matchups as best as possible ROS unless you’re in a 2QB league and nothing is available.

      • Ron says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Well there are a few others that are less attractive….Tannenhil, Palmer, Glennon, Keenum, McCown.

        Locker looks like the best of the bunch for me right?

        I also have a chance to trade for Vick….but his injury history scares me.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I wouldn’t trade for Vick. Locker is fine but I’d still say I’d just play matchups if those guys are out there. Tannehill could have a strong week playing from behind in Pats country.

        @Jon: I’ll take the guy with nearly 10 catches, 150 yards and a touchdown last week and say Reed. Reed over Fleener in my book. His only issue is health.

  21. Kyle says:

    Great article. I made a pretty big trade in my 14 team ppr league. It went like this. I give Sjax, Quizz, Garçon, and MJD and received Marshall, Morris and Helu. I’m trying to sell high on Quizz and am worried about Sjax health and age. Plus Morris has the value of a 9th round keeper next season. My other RB are Leveon Bell and Zac Stacy, while stashing Andre Brown. My WR after Marshalls bye will be Dez Bryant, James Jones, Mike Wallace and Golden Tate. What are your thoughts? Definitely worried a little about the Cutler injury.

    • Sky

      I have zero problems with that trade. Marshall might suffer a little but he’s still Marshall.

    Should I try and pick up Mike James or Zac Stacey in response to the DMart injury?

    • Sky

      I think Stacy’s more talented. Hopefully Kellen Moore isn’t his QB for long, I’d rather have him.

  23. Joe says:
    (link)

    I have a chance to blow most of my FAAB to get Mike James in a money league where I’m pretty weak at RB…but is he really worth it? I mean, what was Doug Martin able to do on that team? On the other hand, when will I have a chance to get a feature RB for free?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      If you’re asking based on talent, no, he’s not worth it. But if he fills a need, he fills a need. Feature RBs are rarely free. Hard question to answer. You gotta pick up backups and pray.

  24. James says:

    Hey Sky,

    12 team PPR. Which WR do you prefer ROS?

    Fitzgerald: vs Atl, Hou, @Jax, Indy, @Phil, (Playoffs: St.Louis, @Tenn, @Sea)
    or
    Blackmon vs SF, @Tenn, Ariz, @Hou, @Cle, (Playoffs: Hou, Buff, Tenn)

    I know youre not high on Fitz but his schedule rest of way seems to be alot softer. Playoffs seem to be almost a wash.

    Which of the two WRs do you like more?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Palmer is a better QB than Skelton but he’s still an immobile QB behind a terrible o-line. I’d rather have Blackmon there.

    I offered him roeth and colston for calvin and i am considering offering this one above can i afford to lose vick and have roeth/locker over vick as my 2nd qb

    0.5 ppr, 2 RB, 3 WR, FLEX (r/w/t)
    same team we discuss every week except made two trades, so here’s the new look:

    Hey sky I’ve been offered Jordan reed for my Shane vereen. Fair ? Or do I need a sweetener. Tight end has been my worst spot all year. .5ppr
    Qb – Brady

    Rb – James
    Rb – l bell
    Te – Rudolph

    Bench – forte (bye) vereen, randle, cox, Bryce brown

      It’s fair, your team needs RB depth just as badly, though…I probably wouldn’t do it.

        @Sky: would you view randle/vereen for jordan cameron a better trade for me? Camerons stats have been great so far but tough looking sked plus a late bye (week 10) and the Wheeden Wacker under centre. I know it still doesn’t help my RB deph but im 2-5 and im all in on my starting lineup. thanks

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          It’s a reasonable gamble given your depth at TE. I like Randle a little right now. I’d like him a lot if Nicks gets traded.

    i may have the chance to trade for drew brees, long term keeper league no restrcitions on how long you can keep a player, is it worth trading Andrew Luck for Brees, i would probably have to add a draft pick or another young player to this, but am i dumb to give up on Luck

    12-team, .5 PPR, non-keeper, $100 Waiver budget (I have $95 left), current record 4-3 (5th in league)

    Hey Sky, great stuff as usual, had a question on waiver bids for this week.
    1) How much would you bid on Steven Jackson, Chris Ivory, and Mike James?
    2) Would you drop Olsen to stash Amendola? If so, what would you bid on Amendola?

    My team
    QB- Wilson
    RBx2- Forte, Lacy
    WRx2- DeSean Jackson, Torrey Smith
    TE- Tony Gonzo
    RB/WR/TE- Sproles
    BN- Shorts
    BN- Pierre Thomas
    BN- Olsen
    BN- Eli (dropping for RB)

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Thanks!

      1) You want SJax or James, you’re probably stuck spending in the low $20s unless people have very little cash. Ivory should go for around $8 or $10. Still not sure how his reps are gonna be treated ROS. Most of his work was done last week because Powell was hurt.

      2) Definitely but at this point you shouldn’t be spending more than say $5 on him. He’s a nice upside pickup for sure.

    Got offered Richardson for Cameron. Lost Martin and gained Gronk. What to do? Also offered Morris for Gronk straight up. I have Jordan Reed should i trade one.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You’ve got a lot of TE depth there. If you can get Morris for Reed, I’d do that. If not, Cam for Morris is something I’d consider. Hold onto Gronk. No to the Richardson deal.

      • Jay says:
        (link)

        @Sky: he won’t budge on Reed for Morris. i also have Lacy in the table for Gronk, but I’ve waited this long. The owner of Richardson has a lot of rb depth and us asking for Cameron. He has Mathews, Helu, ivory, Bernard. Should i counter?

        Also, would you do Cameron for spiller?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Damn…No to Gronk for Lacy. Counter with no way Jose, RE: the Richardson owner. He’s still selling T-Rich like he’s done something. For Cam, I’d want two RBs from his stable if he’s gonna be like that. Bernard and Ivory.

          I wouldn’t trade Cam for Spiller until I see them rest CJ. He needs a couple of games off.

    What do you think about moving Blackmon for Ridley or Sproles? 0.5 PPR. Would either one be sufficient? In desperate need of RB help.. got Murray & Martin.

    I am getting fed up of being in gun shy leagues. Absolutely nobody wants to trade and every offer is deemed “insulting”.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You’re desperate but you’re hurting yourself with that move. Blackmon is a better player week to week. Sounds like you need to start filling your bench with upside RB plays from the FA pool.

      • FillyP says:
        (link)

        @Sky:

        James is available, but my waiver order is 2nd worst. I’ve got Mendy, D. Rich, and Ogbonnaya which are all barely roster-worthy. Other options: Bolden, Tolbert, McGahee, Hunter, Ingram, Hillis…

        How about Blackmon for Le’Veon Bell? Still too short?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Bolden isn’t a bad pick up, honestly. I’d still want Blackmon there but it’s a reasonable trade if you like Le’Veon.

  37. Gbbb says:

    12 team ppr. Was offered Ridley and Alshon Jeffrey (or Harry Douglas) for my Trent Richardson. My other Rbs are woodhead and Steven Jackson (small bench in this league). My wrs are Cruz, TY hilton, colston, and Reuben randle. I was wondering your thoughts on pulling the trigger and if so would you go with Alshon or Douglas? (Btw I have Matt Ryan as qb if that factors into your advice) thanks in advance.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Sadly, I’d have to say I’d take that trade. I’d want Alshon. Douglas is gonna get heavy targets but he’s still not very good. Just a very low upside play in my book ROS.

  38. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    In my dynasty league I have a contending roster, but am still a little worried about Ryan at QB. I have Pryor as a capable backup (and who I like in the format), but Locker is available and has such an easy schedule. 6 pts per TD pass. Drop Pryor for Locker? Or hold since Pryor does have PHI and NYG in weeks 9 and 10, when Ryan gets CAR and SEA (of course Locker has STL and JAX those weeks, too)?

    • Sky

      Hold on to Pryor.

    Hey Sky, just another trade question.

    12 team Yahoo league

    If I can start 4 RBs (2 RB, 2 RB/WR Positions) and I have AP, Giovani, Eddie Lacy, Zac Stacy, SJax, and Vereen in my IR. Do you think it’s fair or in my favor to trade Josh Gordon + Zac Stacy for Dez Bryant, even in light of Bradford’s injury?

  44. Dave says:

    Sorry for another question but just got a trade offer – I’m giving Luck and Edelman for Rivers and TY Hilton? Its .5 PPR and 4 points per passing TD. I like how RIvers schedule is looking ROS and TY should have a bigger role now so I might be winning in both spots what you think?

    Its a 2 qb league where my other qb is Vick so this 2nd qb of mine is important.

      I’d want the TY side.

  45. Chaz says:

    Sky,

    12 team, keep 3 each year.

    QB: Rivers
    WR: Andre Johnson
    WR: Vincent Jackson
    RB: Arian Foster
    RB: Chris Johnson
    TE: Jordan Reed
    W/R: Aslon Jeffrey
    K: Adam Vinateri
    BN: Matt Ryan
    BN: Andre Ellington
    BN: Malcolm Floyd
    BN: Kenbrell Thompkins
    BN: Chris Ivory

    Two deals:
    1. Trading Matt Ryan and Aslon Jeffrey for Darren McFadden and Hakeem Nicks. Not using Ryan for the rest of the season cuz I got Rivers, and McFadden would be a nice keeper if he finishes strong. Don’t see myself keeping Jeffrey even if he continues to perform.

    2. Trading Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and Andre Ellington for Trent Richardson and Jordy Nelson. I know i asked you this last week but now that Foster’s got some serious hammy issues and Houston sucks, I can’t trust him for this season or the future.

    Let me know your thoughts on both.

              Cool, was just clarifying. Greene fits Tennessee’s style more in my book. Could be a sneaky pickup.

  48. Nick says:
    (link)

    I’ve got Forte, Woodhead, CJ2K, Ellington, McCoy, PT, and B Brown in my PPR league.

    I don’t really have room for him unless Graham plays, but do I pick up Mike James with the #2 waiver? With Luck on bye, I have to get an extra QB even if I drop Brady, so I’ve run out of spots. I’ve been holding this waiver for a starting RB job, but he’s not better than what I’ve got, probably.

    What do you think about making a trade with one of my RBs tonight and then seeing if I can pick him up, instead. What about Woodhead or CJ2K for S Smith or Colston? I could also do a 2 for 1 for a stud WR. Any other freaking week and I could use my waiver……

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      If those are the trade ideas, I think I’d rather keep the RB depth. I’m confused on your situation. You do or don’t have roster space based on Graham, correct? Who’s the TE you picked up to start ahead of him if he’s hurt? Is it a big name you just have to hold onto?

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I’ve got Wright. I’ll probably go with Cumberland if Graham can’t go. If Graham plays, I’ve got an opening, but it might force me to use Brady this week since he’s been considered Can’t Cut for whatever reason. I could try RG III for Brady and CJ2K and pick up James at the same time. I could also just give up on my waiver and pick up NO DEF.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          It actually sounds like you should just be dropping your TE who’s not Graham and then making a decision later in the week. You’re not getting any trade value from Wright and you’re not starting him if Graham’s healthy and you have FA options. That would be my move.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Probably not unless the other person is up on their Fantasy. Williams is becoming the target over Austin in Dallas and Keenan is SD’s second/third option most weeks in a pass-heavy offense. It would have to be Allen to get him. They just might not see it as fair.

    Hey Sky, I need some help looking one week into the future.

    My team is doing well, which is great, but it means I never get first choice off the waiver wire. With my starting QB (Stafford) on bye in Week 9, I want to make a pre-emptive waiver claim to prepare for next week’s matchup before the Peyton and Kaepernick owners beat me to the punch.

    Which of the following QBs do you think will be the best bye-week fill in for Week 9?
    Dalton @ Miami
    Smith vs. New Orleans
    Locker @ St. Louis
    McCown @ Green Bay

    • Sky

      You’re trading away top 15 WRs. Marshall’s a great talent even without Cutler and Garcon isn’t going anywhere. Unless you’re really needing something from these trades, I don’t like them.

    Trade offer: his DeAngelo Williams for my Mike Wallace. 12 team, non-ppr, 2RB/2WR/1flex- I have
    Forte/SJax/Ellington/Donald Brown/Snelling
    Wallace/Shorts/Hilton/Edelman/Randle

    His other backs are Morris/Rice/Sproles. Thoughts on this trade/counters? I feel like any combination of my WRs is a crapshoot from week-to-week and that Williams helps out this week (No Forte, Hilton or Brown, probably no Jackson) and makes for a good flex once Jackson is healthy.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ehhhh, I’m not seeing the point to the first trade for you. You’re trading crapshoot for crapshoot there, just switching the positions. If he wants to give up Morris for Wallace or Shorts, I’d listen but one week trades don’t usually fit with fixing longer term problems and create more along the way.

    PPR with .5 pts per 10 return yards. lost (still 5-2) due to playing dalton.
    1. dropping foles for reed for bennett backup/TE depth. not outright dropping bennett, it’s possible mckown has to throw short even more to bennett. sound right?
    2. should i keep CAR def since they appear to be better than stream option. no other great matchup options loom for this week and other ROS options include such luminaries as DAl,STL,NYJ,CLE,BUF,MIA?
    3. drop pierce for j.bell (bench RB, also have moreno on bench,with bush and charles starting)? trying to get james, but i know i’ll get beat to that.
    4.dropping sanders for jones (BAL) due to jones getting over 33 pts in 2 weeks with his return yards. are any of jennings/m.floyd worse than any of DHB/kerley/n.washington/s.rice/baldwin (SEA)/quick?

          Sky says:

          @Charles: Yeah, I’ll take Harvin there.

          • Charles says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Gosh, I should have put a more comprehensive list together to begin with. So Harvin ($14) ahead of Wilson ($17) and Allen ($1). Would you rank Harvin ($14) ahead of any of these:

            Bernard ($1)
            Blackmon ($10)
            Hopkins ($1)

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Yeah, you showed me a 2-2. I never said Wilson over Harvin, just that Harvin was over Sproles.

              I’ll take Blackmon/Wilson/Harvin/Keenan/Bernard/Hopkins

              • Charles says:
                (link)

                @Sky: Oops, sorry. I meant to ask whether you’d rather trade Kaep/Sproles for Wilson/Allen or only Sproles for Harvin.

                And the order you gave factors in their 2014 prices, right?

                This is a big help.

                  Ah gotcha. Yeah how I ranked them included all factors. He Harvin deal is good (known product/young enough) while the 2-2 deal gives you some wiggle room at next years draft and a good wild card in Keenan

    Hello Sky, I would like to pose a bye week conundrum question that many commenters might be dealing with.

    “Hi Sky, great column as usual. Looks like your Chris Ivory fantasy is coming true, he must of forgot to go to bed and never became a sleeper…hahaha…I have jokes yo!. I’m having a bye week issue. I need both a RB and WR this week and am unsure how to prioritize my waivers. If I’m going to use my number one waiver do I either go with Mike James or Jarrett Boykin? This is a standard league. Keep up the good work. I look forward to your response”

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Hello J-FOH, I would like to pose a typical response to a reader that I don’t know:

      Haha, thanks J-FOH for reading! I’d say Boykin because if Doug Martin can’t run in TB, I don’t see how his backup could.

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Well then how about question two, “The First Question Strikes Back”, some idiot owner in my league dropped Ellington after TNF and PT Cruiser because of the bye week, do I drop Stacy for either one?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Haha it’s still Stacy there

  60. Bryan says:
    (link)

    Thoughts on Matt Ryan ROS? I have Vick and ELI as QB options was thinking of trading Harvin for Ryan (the other owner also has Stafford)

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Called him a sell when Julio went down so I wouldn’t make that trade.

  61. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    My RBs: Forte, Miller, Ellington, Vereen
    WRs: Dez, Gordon, Keenan, T. Will, Tate

    Trade Gordon for Spiller?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Not until he sits a game. He’s playing through an injury that he shouldn’t be.

  62. Bryan says:
    (link)

    Josh Gordon or Sproles going forward?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Different positions, different sets of needs. On the surface, I’ll say Gordon but I don’t have much to go off here.

      • Bryan says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Gordon is my 3rd/4th wr with Harvin back soon and my rbs are iffy after McCoy with Rice and Richardson so was thinking Sproles might give me some consistency.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          You can get by with mediocre RB play this year. You want studs at WR. That’s why I’d abstain

  63. Mr. Glass says:
    (link)

    Would dropping Olsen for Reed basically be a wash I have gronk and was exploring trading him for something preferably a good WR, but I’m not to sure if I want to give up the clear advantage each week at TE(I already played the Graham owner) and I’m not to fond of starting Olsen the rest of the season with his ankle and the fact he hasn’t really been targeted that much in the past couple games

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Reed has more upside and a surer target base in Washington (their defense will force RG3 to throw more than Cams defense will) so he has a slight edge but I do see them in the same tier. Given you have Gronk, take the chance on upside

      • Mr. Glass says:
        (link)

        @Sky: thanks, quick follow up if you don’t mind would you drop Terrance Williams for Boykin I was thinking of staying pat just looking for a second opinion

  64. the imp says:
    (link)

    I think you’ll be happy to know I spent 3 minutes writing a dumb question, answered it myself, and then didn’t bother you to confirm it (though I have now bothered you for no apparent reason). Progress?

    PPR league
    who over foles (luck bye) this week
    a. smith vs CLE
    g.smith @CIN
    palmer vs ATL
    freeman vs GB (probably not after how bad he looked)
    2. if i don’t get james (have 11th waiver so i likely will, but in case), with this week matchup listed:
    tolbert @TB
    d.thomas @NE
    ingram vsBUF
    hillis @PHI
    choice (hope for 1 or both to get more injured?)
    3. at WR this week if dola doesn’t play m.williams or kerley? both this week and ROS for williams vs kerley. neither has good matchup this week with kerley @ CIN and williams vs CAR.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: sorry 11th place, so 2nd waiver. team is terrible.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: after reading more news concerning martin, it looks unknown (or maybe just misinfo, NE style) whether or not he really will be out all year. so I’ll just drop m.williams for james at this point, at least for a few days, if dola doesn’t play i can either drop martin later in week for best of m.williams/kerley or just have 1 unmanned spot this week while waiting to hear about martin. this is the only week this would happen as I have a lot of byes and injured players.

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: turns out RCL’s don’t do waivers in the weekly turnover way so i’m only 5th on waivers, not 2nd like I should be tied with the worst record and the 9th most total pts. doesn’t make any sense that the team in 1st has a better claim at getting the backup to martin (or anybody else either, simply from not waivering as many people as others) as I am in 11th and am an already terrible team. Wish I would’ve known that about RCL’s before the year. In real life the worst teams get the better draft picks and/or waiver claims, due to parity making for a competitive, more entertaining sport.

            In real life, throwing too many rules at commissioners outside of the defaults leads to poorly constructed leagues. You’re talking to the guy that wrote a whole article on getting rid of kickers :)

          Have a hard time believing they rush him back in a lost year for the team. Just keep that in mind once you start seeing and hearing reports.

      Given your team having Manning, Antonio Brown is a good get. Go for it.

  69. Friar says:

    Would you drop either of Lamar Miller or Amendola for Boykin and/or Andre Brown? 12-team non-PPR league and my team is deep enough that none of these guys need to start for me at this point.

      Hrm, you don’t have any other names to drop? I could see Boykin for ‘dola but it might come back to haunt you.

    PPR didn’t get reed as TE along with bennett (who also has bye this week). who’s 1. best this week, and 2. possibly useful enough to keep around even after, if any since bennett now has mckown throwing to him
    fauria vs DAL
    ertz vs NYG
    fasano vs CLE (nfl.com projections have him higher than mcgrath)
    housler vs ATL
    chandler @NO.
    pretty ugly picks out here so after this week gotta hope mckown keeps throwing to bennett, which I can imagine shitty QB’s might do.

    Sup Man… I have Sprolles in my RB spot and I’m trying to fill my Flex. Would you put Pierre Thomas at flex even though I already have Sprolles at RB or should I put in – Bowe, MJD or Emanuell Sanders??
