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

So here I am, cruising along with my fantasy year with Jimmy Graham a pick in one of my friends leagues.  Then the whole foot issue comes up and my response is ‘O-M-G’ and I’m like ‘I’m a grown-ass man…why am I saying OMG?’ These are all important questions to evaluate as we dip into the psyche of a man who told you to SELL Graham not long ago.  To be fair, Tehol and I discussed at length – read: he and I tweeted at each other and I asked ‘Is this bad?’ and he was like ‘bro, it’s bad’ and I was like ‘thanks, brah, you’re right’ and he was all ‘like totes no probs, breh’ and I was all like ‘this is terrible dialogue to post on a website’ and he was all like ‘true, bruh’ – so we felt we had this subject covered.  To be fair, Graham has been much more hit/miss than many of his owners would’ve expected given the start.  He was the cream of the crop at TE before the injury, how could the injury not affect that?  That was a rhetorical question, of course, but thank you for the response.  After catching 5 catches for 100 yards, scoring  a TD and Shaquille O’Neal’ing a goal post, I think we have our answer.  Graham is ‘Godzilla’ to us western folk and ‘Godjira’ to the East.  You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him until his foot falls off.  I 100% own that my sell call could’ve been wrong but remember, we still have 4 more weeks until the season is over; if his reduced workload caused you any fantasy playoff heartache, feel free to cry into my abundant bosom.  Ok, my bosom isn’t that abundant, leave me go, weeping one.  Anywho, I’m sure you’re gonna ask: what do we do with Graham ROS?  Well, sell windows have most likely come and gone so that’s no longer an option.  Add/drop…who’s dropping Graham and adding fluff?  Not me.  So your only hope is you start him all week, every week until it pans out right.  He hasn’t been terrible since the injury, just frustrating compared to previous numbers.  Only so much control can be contributed to this little world we live in for fantasy and sometimes, little jackwads like myself come along and tell you how to do things and find I’m wrong.  In other news from TNF from week 12 of the 2013 Fantasy Football season…

Harry Douglas - Apparently he’s a WR1…who knew?  Not Atlanta.  Finished with 9 for 79 on 11 targets.  Who needs Julio when you’re getting the Harry D every night, right?  Oh you need to throw up?  Bathroom’s right around the corner…please hit the toilet…please…

Pierre Thomas – If I had told you before the game started that the PT Cruiser would finish the night with a 7.3 ypc average and 5 receptions on 6 targets, you would’ve soiled yourself right then and there.  Seriously, cleanup on aisle 6 and buy some depends.  Finished with 130 total yards and zero touchdowns because the Falcons went all ‘the season ain’t over yet’ on us all.  Falcons, Y U NO ROLL OVER AND DIE?

Steven Jackson – Speaking of rolling over and dying, SJax must’ve found a Voodoo priest as his fantsay life has arisen from the dead for one night with 79 total yards and his first rushing touchdown of the year.  I can’t believe I typed those last five words.  It takes me back to the early part of summer when I thought the Falcons would be an offensive juggernaut and SJax would fill the role of Michael Turner only better.  It was a good time back then.  The sun was shining, the grass was growing and my forehead wasn’t bruised from all the times I bashed it in with a keyboard.  Fun point, SJax has tallied 65 or more yards in 3 of his last 4 games.  Only reason we care about him today is the TD.  He’s still in flex hell the rest of the year folks, don’t kid yourself.  Believe me, I tried to and it didn’t work.

Roddy White – Milk Carton.  Better yet, put him on Interpol at this point, this search needs to go across the globe.  Finished with 2/24.  I get it, injuries are partially to blame but really?  You’re looking a little pale, Mr. White.

Tony Gonzalez – You ever seen video of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon?  You notice how he lumbered around, hampered by zero gravity and a heavy suit?  That’s how Gonzalez runs now while he catches 4 passes for 43 yards.  Can someone explain to me why they didn’t put him out to pasture at the trade deadline to a contender?  Anyone?

Mark Ingram – As I mentioned on twitter last night, Ingram has been running like a 40 Year Old Virgin would experience his first time.  He’s hitting holes fast and hard and not really paying attention to whether it’s the best hole to hit or whether it’s bringing his team any pleasure.  He missed a few good chances.  I like his eagerness.  It shows moxie.  I don’t like his vision.  It lacks anti-Trentness.

Antone Smith – This was the guy I was interested in given his team wasn’t making the playoffs.  He got one carry.  It went for 11 yards.  It was impressive.  No one but dynasty leaguers care.  Moving on.

Kenny Stills/Robert Meachem/Lance Moore – Combined for 62 total yards and 5 receptions.  Benjamin Watson almost outscored them in standard leagues combined with his 1 catch, 2 yard TD.  This is why we play fantasy football, right?  RIGHT?!?

Matt Ryan - Admittedly looked better than I expected.  Of course, New Orleans not showing up for a quarter plus added to that.  He finished the night with decent yardage, zero TDs and plenty of sacks.  Coulda been better, coulda been much worse with the pressure he finally started seeing.  Been telling you to drop the Klepto Kid from Can’t Hardly Wait for a while now.  Think this night is gonna change my tune?

Darius Johnson – I want to be excited.  Believe me, I do.  But something about tonight’s coverage screamed ‘we don’t care about this kid’.  Open slants pretty much all night until the Saints defense buckled in and Darius finished with 6/67 and a crucial fumble.  Almost finished with a touchdown, FWIW.  Which is another way of saying ‘hey you.  Yeah you, the one in the 18 team league with 5 flex spots.  You know that Darius Johnson kid you picked up?  Yeah, he almost scored you 12 points and instead he scored you about 4 or 5 in standard.  Sorry about that’.  Falcons have been dropping bird poop on everyone this year.  Only fair you get to join in on the wealth.

Drew Brees – Fart noises.  That’s the best I can say about this performance.  I knew they slipped a bit away from home but damn…really?  I get it, it’s a decent line with 278 and 2 TDs but I’m expecting that from Mike Glennon this weekend, not Drew frickin’ Brees man.  Oh and whoever you are that had that last -11 yard rushing play affect reaching the playoffs this week: I feel for you, I really do.

    Re: Ramblin’ Roddy…

    I swear Ryan was just staring down his wideouts from the snap. I swear he wasn’t scanning the field. Is Roddy still hiding an injury and not going at 100% and not getting open? I didn’t even see him but I know he was on the field!

    Or is it just me? Now I know why I was able to get him off the wire a couple of weeks ago in a 10 team league. I feel like a sucker.

    • Cram It says:

      @CL: Agreed. Ryan was absolutely staring down his options and looked Roddy’s way like 3 three times the whole game.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Yeah, Ryan is just a flat out mess this year. He’s really missing Julio and the days when Tony didn’t run like a he had boulders in his shoes and when Roddy was healthy. With White, I honestly am not sure at this point. Its strange if he’s still dealing with injury and out there for a team that isn’t gonna make the playoffs. I think it’s just a team that’s not in good shape and is playing poorly.

      He’s still decent, don’t feel that bad. He’s just not a stud like he was last year.

    One other thing I forgot about Ryan when we were discussing his lack of “it”. That guy literally looks like a fish out of water when he has to move out of the pocket. He’s just limbs flopping around when he scrambles.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Oh definitely but I think there are a few QBs like that in the league. Andy Dalton is looking like Matt Ryan’s younger brother at this point. They’re decent, can be coached up to a certain level but without great players around them, they’re mediocre at best.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

        @Sky: bradford is WAY worse with the feet. almost like he’s not even an athlete. true to a lesser extent with Ryan.

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: that’s more than fair, RE: Bradford. So many poor throws. He never gets comfortable back there.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Sky: watching the Rams since Bradford went out it’s getting hard for any Rams employee to claim that STL didn’t simply get better due to only 2 things 1. losing Bradford for season (forcing team to actually run the ball) 2. realizing d.richardson wasn’t their best RB, but their worst (out of stacy/cunningham/richardson). Team is youngest in football and it surely looks like the team learned to play hard only since Bradford went out.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Don’t think Bradford should be a part of that storyline. Think he excelled in spite of the lack of a run game. If Stacy was his back, they’d have been an intriguing team out of the gate.

    Am I crazy to drop RG3 and Matty Ice from my team and roll with a guy like Mike Glennon?

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @Yeshcheese: Sky has endorsed the Ryan drop for awhile now, and I would agree. I’m inclined to still go RG3 over Glennon ROS, though benching him for this week is not crazy, especially if it looks like Reed will be out. Can you just drop Ryan for Glennon or do you have a need for RG3′s roster spot too?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      If you’re asking to drop 2 QBs to pick up 1 then yes, you’re crazy. You can drop Matt for him. Not sure why you’d drop RG3…

  6. Operation Mindcrime says:
    (link)

    Thanks for answer yesterday! Psyched for Ogbannaya. Does time of games factor into your lineup decisions besides for injury reasons? Brees and Colston already played for opponent and Brees had 22 (would be happy with that from RG3, but still 7 below his projection) and Colston only 4. We both have 4 players in noon games (need win at 5-6 and barely in final play(off spot). Anyways, excuse my rambling but I picked up Palmer as a backup plan to RG3 (looks shitty outside garbage time) pending on how the matchups noon players do. I thought Glennon slightly better play but he’s a noon game and that was tiebreaker for me. Sound strategy to play Palmer if close or RG3 if big lead?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Haha, no problem. I’d be playing RG3 either way, personally, but if you’re going to play that game, you should be doing it with Glennon, not Palmer.

  7. Wilsonian says:

    So I was all set to drop Reed to get Vereen off my IR, and now I’m having second thoughts. I have Graham, and plan on starting him as long as he is actually playing, and of course did so last night. But I do like having a decent backup TE, just in case. The only things on the wire are Bennett and Walker, other than that it’s poop, shit, and diarrhea, so it’ll be shitty if Graham goes down and I don’t have Reed anymore. After this week with Gio on BYE, I should be set at RB with this roster. Would you prefer to dump DBrown for Vereen given this scenario?

    QB – Stafford
    WR – Green, Dez, Garcon, Decker, Gordon, Harvin
    RB – Forte, Gio, CJohnson, Ridley, Rainey, DBrown
    TE – Graham, Reed
    IR – Vereen

    We play 3 WRs, 2 RBs, 1 TE, 1 W/R flex, 1 W/R/T flex. So the absolute most RBs I could play is four. DBrown isn’t going to play, barring serious injury to a good chunk of my lineup for the rest of the season. If Graham goes down, I will desperately need Reed. Does my drop of DBrown make sense, given this scenario?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Drop Brown

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      So here’s how I’d play it now that I think about it: you’re already in the playoffs so you don’t NEED Vereen right now, correct? Hold on until you absolutely have to play Vereen. I know it sounds like a rough way to go but I think you should give yourself the next couple of weeks to play out. Who knows, maybe someone goes down hurt for a long stretch. Just started thinking about this. Your team is fine without Vereen for a time. Play the waiting game and see how everyones health holds up.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: well I’m not technically in the Playoffs in this league (am in another). I’m in 1st by one game and up 120 points on the 2nd place guy. So I’d like to win now. So you’d just hang tight and play either Ridley or CJ in the flex? Or just screw it and dump Brown? I had Graham last night, my opponent had Douglas and Hartley. So I’m up around 2 points right now.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Confused…you are or aren’t in the playoffs in this league? You say you aren’t to start and then tell me you’re in first place…

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: I technically don’t have the little asterix by my team name, so no, I don’t have a guaranteed playoff spot locked up. I’m 8-3, two teams are 7-4, and two teams are 6-5 with 3 weeks (counting this one) left to play. So, theoretically, I could lose out and not be in. Most likely, I’m in.

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Gotcha. How many teams get in though? I guess that’s the point I’m trying to drive home. I play the game very differently than others. I don’t really care about my regular season record, I care about having the best team for the playoffs. I don’t think Vereen not starting for you this week is going to ruin that, personally, considering the options you have.

              • Wilsonian says:
                (link)

                @Sky: 4 teams get in. So if I hold off and don’t play Vereen in my last flex spot, who gets in:

                CJ, Ridley, or DBrown? Those are my only options. 0.5 PPR.

                • Sky

                  Sky says:
                  (link)

                  I’d roll with CJ.

                  • Wilsonian says:
                    (link)

                    @Sky: I’ll do that for now. I just have a feeling Vereen will go off on Sunday night. It looks like they’re going to make every effort to have him as involved as possible and I just see big things. Unless 2 or 3 RBs go down for me, I don’t see any way that Brown ever sees the lineup. Especially if Rainey keeps up the good work.

                    • Sky

                      Sky says:
                      (link)

                      Trust me, all that you say is true. It’s an alternative way of looking at things, that was all I was trying to provide. If you’re worried, dropping Brown is the best alternative.

        @Sky: pretty sure the pt of selling graham while losing snaps and playing injured with lingering foot injury and also having his own name value is the opposite of selling low.

    Brees
    Calvin & Hilton Bench: Keenan rishard sjohnson
    Stacey Mathews Bench: Rainey Ogre Ellington Lamar Shonn
    Reed Bench: Witten
    This is standard league. I assume the move is to try to consolidate rbs and be willing to move Brees witten and other rbs to do so?

          Couldn’t you try a softer approach for him if he’s on bye and the guy is in must win? Maybe a 2 for 1 special? McCoy is better but think Stacy is a top 10 back ROS.

              It might be too much but starting Stacy/McCoy during the stretch run would be pretty sweet. I think you should try either Rainey/Ellington or Mathews/Ellington first, though. They’re the ones that need to win now, no reason to not check in at the lowest price possible.

      Weekly rankings have both. Pretty sure I have Jennings ahead in both

  11. Current live projection (after my kicker played) this week is

    ME: 108.42
    OPP: 112.34

    If I take Gordon out of the line-up and plug in Garcon it will add 4.04 to my proj:

    ME: 112.48
    OPP: 112.34

    But, since you have Garcon below Gordon, this week, I don’t suppose you would endorse this decision, would you?

I’ve sat him the past few weeks because he had been sucking it up, and he goes and has decent scoring weeks. I start him this week because D-Jax is on a bye and he takes a dump on my team. I think I’m officially done with him. But I won’t drop him because then he’ll score 20 points a game for the rest of the season for whomever picks him up.

        @Sky: Bench purgatory, I like that.

        Quick flex question: LaVeon Bell or Dobson in 1/2PPR? I’m leaning Bell but he didn’t look great last game. After Colstons front door dump delivery from last night, I’m willing to take a chance on a high upside play.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I like Le’Veon’s floor, even though I’m not a huge fan. Dobson is the upside play there but Bell is definitely the safer go.

  14. Dead Head says:
    (link)

    So what do I do with Decker? I know he’s had some good games, but he’s also had like a 5-7 point floor besides the like 3 games where he actually put up double digit points. Watching the games it just seems like he’s the 4th or 5th option for Manning, even when he’s open Manning tries to force it to DT or Orange Julius or Welker. Should I look to trade him? Doesn’t seem like people really perceive his value as being that high, so what could I reasonably expect to get in a trade? Or should I package him with like Ellington and shoot for an upgrade at WR? I like Keenan Allen, do you think he’s a better option in the playoffs?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Dead Head: Decker’s a WR3. 5-7 points with a potential for a big day is what a WR3 typically is. Sure try to trade him, depends what you get.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      WR2 on the nose. Highs and lows. I think the thing to point out here is he’s got a decent floor if those are your low points. Can try for an upgrade but I’m a bit worried concerning Allen’s health right now. I’d personally enjoy having a foot in the door of the best offense in the league, though.

      • Dead Head says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Ok thanks, and as far as Keenan Allen goes, it looks like his injury isn’t really anything big, and he’s not guna miss any games. I just like his upside and besides Antonio Gates, they don’t really have a great target besides Allen to throw to. And for the playoffs I think that could be valuable, and the schedule for passing weeks 14-16 is pretty good as well.

        And for Decker I wasn’t thinking of “upgrading” him with Allen, that was a different question so sorry if that was confusing, but is there someone like Antonio Brown, or someone around the top10-14 that would be a good target that would maybe be more reliable than Decker on a week to week basis? Im moving towards a 1st round bye and just trying to shore up some week spots before the playoffs.

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @Dead Head: Antonio Brown is a WR1. You’re basically asking “should I trade for a player that’s better than the one I have now?”. The answer is always yes, and depends on what you have to give up.

          Just his health in general. He’s already had a few issues this year. Sorry, wasn’t clear about that.

          Oh sure, there are plenty of guys I’d take over him right now but it might be hard to get any of the WRs ahead of him. Brown’s a top 10 WR, you’re gonna have a hard time landing him. Try for Torrey Smith. I like his ROS schedule. TY should be a more consistent WR and is ranked near him. That would be your best move, trying to find someone who’s ranked near him who’ll provide a higher floor ROS. Could try for a Garcon/VJax/Gordon type but that’s probably a stretch.

            (link)

            @Sky: Ok ya that’s basically what I meant, Brown was a bad example lol. But ya that’s basically what I meant was guys that could be top10-14ish that aren’t really “perceived” as being really that high right now for the stretch run. I have Gordon as my other WR so I’ll shoot out some feeler offers on guys like Vjax, TY, and Torrey Smith and just see what happens. It seems I have abunch of RB2 highend RB3′s so I was guna try and target a team hurting on RBs or maybe struggling with bye weeks and scoop someone up that could be useful.

            Appreciate the help guys thanks

    i listened to you….. i dropped Matt Ryan and picked up Cutler who i didn’t even get to play ONE time! but i am keeping him in hopes of good things in weeks 14-16. Please tell me you think he will be relevant again this season. in the meantime… i picked up Case Keenan and he got yanked after only a half. ! So who do you like this week….Keenam (i still have him), Gleenon, Eli, Fitz, Palmer? and in another 10 team ppr 2 QB league someone dropped Cutler. I have Cam, Kap and Foles already, should i drop one of them for Cutler? thanks for the articles, i get a good laugh out of your articles and a good laugh is priceless!

      Damn, sounds like a roller coaster year at QB for you. I still like Keenum there, personally.

      Cutler’s health worries me quite a bit. Ligament issues in the ankle. I don’t see a good reason to pick him up.

    I am slowly convincing myself to start Eli Manning the next 3 weeks over the likes of Andrew Luck. Manning gets Dallas, Redskins then Chargers…quite a roll into the playoffs. Luck has AZ, TN and Cin. Week 15 Manning gets SEA and Luck HOU. I think I’ll switch back if I am lucky enough to still be around at that point. Is this strategy crazy? When I see the rankings (this week) and Luck is 6 and Manning is 12 I think you all see something about the matchups that I don’t.

    • Dead Head says:
      (link)

      @Sniff Test: Luck’s floor is just higher than Eli’s ceiling at this point. Eli hasn’t shown all season that he’s capable of being reliable even in juicy matchups like those. He’s good for at least 1-2 INT”s per week, and they are more than happy to run the ball 30-35-40 times a game and keep Eli from really throwing like crazy. Luck has shown even in matchups against SEA, SF, DEN that he can put up nice solid points, and even has had some of his best games against tough matchups. The rushing factor is really what separates them IMO, he’s capable of 2 TD’s and 1 TD rushing every game so that’s just too good to bench in favor of Eli even in those matchups.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Dead Head: all of what dead head said was completely true earlier in season. However, last 2 weeks (through week 12 sunday night) luck’s floor was fairly shitty, and eli hasn’t had pick problems since a.brown came back. Only thing Luck has going for him currently is he’s likely going to have to go back to like last year and throw it 50 times a game the way his team is playing.

    • Chicken Dinner says:
      (link)

      @Sniff Test: As a Giants fan I must warm you, the Giants have a tendency to play to their opponent. You think that these matchups are favorable but when the games over…….not so much. This actually applies to every team/player. Everyone thought Brees was going HAM last night because of the matchup but that didn’t happen. More often than not the players overall abilities supersede matchup. This year, Luck is much better. Therefor, he’s ranked higher.

      That being said, go with your first insticts. Second guessing tends to lead to more frustration in the end.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Luck hasn’t reached ‘can’t sit’ area but I don’t think I could condone Eli over him automatically. He’s been solid of late but not breakout great. Let’s see how he handles Dallas this weekend before we start thinking an Eli playoff run.

                  We just don’t know how Rainey will respond to an adverse opponent yet. I believe he’ll be good but if he fails against Detroit, it makes it tough to ride him as your RB2 ROS. I think you’re gonna have to hold.

    Hey Sky,

    12 team ppr.
    I need to pick up a guy to fill my last flex while Harvin and F.Jax are on a bye.
    Im playing the worst team in the league who has had some poor showings most of the year (lots of injuries) and I had Graham (21 points) and he had Colsten (8 ppints) already play.
    So Im thinking someone safe and get me a few catches and yards atleast.
    Heres who is on the wire. Leonard, Streater, M.Brown, C.Patterson, C.Givens, T.Wright someone else who i havent mentioned who could be a sleeper that is on nobodys radar?

    thanks

      If there’s anybody I haven’t thought of, I would’ve ranked them yesterday. I’d have you take a look there. I’m a little confused by the question, though. are you dropping someone to pick these guys up? Who would you start if you didn’t pick these guys up?

      • james says:
        (link)

        I currently have Leonard (started last week) and Wright( Insurance for Graham) and would be dropping one of them. I added them to the list incase one of them were my better options and then I would just go with that.
        I looked for your rankings but couldnt find them. But even with the rankings, which guy do you think is the safest play for a decent amount of catches/yards?

    Someone dropped ryan mathews and i have # 1 waiver priority should i drop garret graham or ellington or do nothing

    Rbs charles lynch ellington andre brown Tes greg olsen garret graham WRs marshall a brown colston amendola

    The kid who is in last place is 2-9 no shot at playoffs so id never see any of these guys again if i trade and he owns calvin and torrey smith and is aggressively shopping them

    trade either lynch or charles for calvin johnson
    It would thin out my RBs considerably but id have andre brown as my rb2 and some nice options
    And marshall a brown calvin for my three WRs

    Would u try antonio brown and andre brown for calvin — is that even enough or too much

    And the kid accepted roddy and ivory for torrey smith its most likely going to be vetoed for the second time
    Is an offer of colston or amendola and ellington for torrey too much or too little
    Would torrey be that much of an upgrade over colston / amendola

          I mean I traded for a guy on his bye week so mine is way less worse. Like this guy was not going to win with Wallace and Steve smith at wr and Djax on his bench. Oh and rice and Leonard as his rbs.

      Snow not as much of a worry as heavy winds. But do your thing, in the end its your team. Main concern is how bad the Redskins looked last week on the road vs the Eagles defense. 49ers are gonna be a team that lost 2 in a row and is gonna play angry at home after that call in NOLA.

    Hey Sky,
    With Reed out for sure it is time to pick up a 2nd TE after missing on the wire for Fleener on Tu, I have only have Miller or Clay to seriously consider.
    Did your ranking of Miller assume Sanders was going to play or sit? I am worried Heath will be relegated again with Sanders back, though bad weather probably would induce more checkdowns if the Steelers don’t turn to the run game. Clay just seems healthier and though CAR is tough, they have allowed TEs to score 4 of the last 6 games.
    If you have time, would you mind defending your Miller ranking over Clay?

        Gronk/Vernon Davis/Tony Gonzalez were three of those 4. I wouldn’t put Clay at that level, personally. Carolina is surging and a big part of it is their defense. I wouldn’t want to play many against them right now, especially someone who is relying on Tannehill to have time to throw.

    Bless you for always answering my questions…..8 team ppr…..I can only play 2wr, 2rb, 2te, 1flex.
    Starting DThomas, AlJeffrey, Forte, Stacy, Moreno or Welker . One of those guys has to sit. How do you feel about Moreno and Welker this week? Moreno loses more carries to Ball? Hoodie shuts down Welker for spite? I lost Reed for TE….have Housler and need to pick up someone….Carlson, Tim Wright, B Meyers, Paulsen, FDavis.. Ugh I can’t believe I have to start one of these guys! And to get one I have to drop k Allen, or Riley cooper or KC or Carolina defense. What choices! Guess I could take a zero at TE , but I’m already stating Keenam so I’m on shaky ground here :) Leaning toward dropping Cooper as he may not crack my WR lineup unless someone gets hurt.
    How do you have time to process all these questions? I hit up guys on twitter and Facebook but rarely get a reply. Thanks for listening .

      That would suck to drop Cooper. You sure you don’t have someone else you could drop? Then again, 8 team, probably not…

      @the imp: we don’t know at around noon and may have to drop 5th RB to pick up holmes to sub.

      • the imp says:

        @goodfold2: Yeah, if he is in your lineup now and there is no backup on the bench then you are probably in a coin flip situation that he suits up and doesn’t give you a zero.

        @Sky: now that SD’s coaches have their shit together again regarding allen i won’t be benching him any more.

          Well at least the Sanders TD made it not as bad

            @Sky: yeah, even with the 6 pt bonus for going over 100 for allen it’s like 10 pt difference. in same league though I played keenum over eli over rodgers. what’s up with waiver QB’s at home today all sucking… bad. tolzien/keenum (in the best matchup possible)/cambell.

              Trust me, I know. Some of these home QBs are gonna kill some teams for me this week. Damn about Keenan.

    In RCL i’m the 5th best team with record so bad i’m not making playoffs anyway, put in holmes when I could’ve gotten underwood. great.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Where’d you hear to pick up Underwood? I had him in my fringe WR3 range for the week but even this line is surprising.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

        @Sky: needed short term nicks AND d.moore replacement so looked at rankings. holmes was by far highest available but I thought #2 receiver against DET could be at least serviceable (say 4 for 45 or so); but with time constraints went with the ranked guy (holmes).

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: was actually thinking of a few other guys to play (in an 8 minute window); didn’t really like any of them.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            I’m assuming you’re referring to someone else’s rankings? I didn’t have Santonio Holmes ahead of Underwood this week.

            • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
              (link)

              @Sky: yr right, i completely missed underwood being that high and somehow imagined his name was below holmes’. wow, lost 29 and change (would only be down by 6 had I read that right) and would only need dola/vereen to outscore p.manning by 6 to actually win by that hurried f’up while trying to set 5 hockey lineups and 4 football ones and only finding Nicks to be short term problem.. good thing i’m only playing for record and for the fun of it in that league.

    now likely about to be 0-3 post rodgers with the likes of cutler/keenum/keenum (by week) and 5-7 in 9th where 8 make playoffs (even if get 8th, have to fast much better team in first round). Damn Foles being shitty that one week for 3 quarters just before both Rodgers and Foles’ own injuries and/or my lack of trust in him at the time look to have tanked this team (doesn’t it seem odd that was his only bad game?) It appears Kubiak broke Keenum’s (spirit? brain?). Dude scores 18.55 and 27.35 against good defenses, and 46.1 against a bad defense, and 12.5 in half of another game. So playing keenum/sanders over eli/allen cost 24.75 and i’m only projected to lose by like 7. Need moreno/gronk/vereen to score total of 57.76. My opp is dumb enough to still be playing kicker on bye this week (but not dumb enough to play keenum)
    1. next week (last chance, have to win and likely get help to if I don’t win this week)
    manuel vs ATL
    fitz @IND
    palmer @PHI
    eli @WAS
    . rodgers/foles combo knocked me from 4th to 9th in 3 weeks.

      1) Good options. Nowhere near doing rankings as today’s games haven’t ended so you’re getting pretty much a gut call. I’ll say Palmer.

      Don’t think you can blame Foles for the last 3 weeks…

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: only blaming foles for being terrible that one week before his injury (if he wasn’t exactly that bad I would’ve held him), and then this would’ve happened…
        week 10. I would’ve lost by 5.1 (with foles) BUT that would’ve been completely my fault for playing miller over sproles (off injury and not utilizied in offense lately before that week) and a.brown (first game back coaches lied and told media he’d get few carries). both brown and sproles had between 24-28.
        So true record would be the same, but had he not sucked against DAL terrible def on OCT 20th i’d at least have a trustworthy QB option for next week and possible playoffs.

          Ah, gotcha. Was about to say, pretty harsh for a guy who’s been a top 10 QB and is now on bye. Ha.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Sky: basically the ONLY part of his season that he sucked (and more importantly Rodgers getting hurt the NEXT week) really F’ed my shit up. I had stashed him in BOTH Rodger’s leagues before the bad game. In the other Rodgers league I already locked up conference but would be in much better shape with Foles until Rodgers comes back.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: now all of a sudden yahoo has my vereen/gronk/moreno to actually be 50/50 to score at least 45.46 more, AND Ridley completely fucked up yet again (that wasn’t one of the “damn that defender knocked the ball out”, nothing RB could do there plays), so that’ll help vereen play all snaps.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @goodfold2: only 23.36 or more for gronk (done nothing yet, gets to go with the wind in the 2nd)/vereen (now starting RB more than the other 3 guys)/moreno (already hit over 100 bonus, but may get benched, since this isn’t really a football game). still if gronk or moreno can get another TD, and vereen gets a lot of short catches, moreno some too, very winnable. Won’t have to hang myself for giving away 10.7 on the allen bench.

  40. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    BOTH Gronk and Vereen get to the 2 inch line but miss, sweet jesus. only down 10.95 now, would’ve pretty much had it in the bag if either of those first 2 TD’s went to vereen or gronk.

      Sky says:

      I’m living it myself. I’m up 3 but he’s got Dobson/Manningham left. Could lose because ‘dola/Gronk/Vereen can’t pull it out for me

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I got dola in the RCL where i’m losing no matter what happens, due to apparently only to myself misreading ranks, had I played underwood over holmes (per correct reading of rankings) AND dola/vereen outscoring P.manning by at least 6 (is at this point, Manning’s having worst game of season, by far), also in a bigger money league, where even with Dola’s performance tonight i’ll win unless Opp’s Kaeper beats my V.davis by like 30 or more. As we speak though it’s been all dola/vereen.

      @goodfold2: this game seems fixed, like the super bowl (before power outage vs after). this is first half vs 2nd.

        @goodfold2: That is what my father in law would say to be sure. JFOH must be pretty unhappy with this result.

    I almost feel guilty going to 8-4 and securing a playoff spot with my sketchy squad:

    1. I was having dreams of dropping Boykin until Flynn came in to save his day.
    2. Is it really fair to get 61 pts for Gordon’s monsterous garbage time effort when his own team only scores 11 points? How in the hell do you score 11 pts anyway (don’t tell me…I’ll look it up…as if it matters.)?
    3. Finally picked the right one of my RB2/flexes with MJD. Not a huge fan of the amount of work he was yielding to Toadman though.
    4. Amendola is not the WR2 I was hoping for when I drafted him. 5th option tonight….glad I didn’t need his points.
    5. Thanks for steering me toward Heath over Clay. 3 extra points. I’ll take ‘em. Get well soon Jordan.

    Hope luck shined on at least one of your squads today.

      Ha fantasy is a real weird game. No one expects the junk time inquisition! Boykin actually performed well the prior week around the same time in the game. He’s the third WR, GB has to play from behind to him heavily involved. Then again, if they’d play him more maybe they wouldn’t be down (hint, hint GB).

      Amendola was out too long. Zero rhythm at this point. It’s Gronk/Vereen and then someone out of Edelman/Dobson/Thompkins/’dola to round things out. Frustrating but true.

      Gordon was decent before junk time hit. Besides, everything balances out. Just look back at the clunkers he’s dropped. You’re getting it back in spades this week.

    Here’s my team
    QB-Cam
    RB1 Lacy
    RB2 Murry
    WR 1 Antonio “PPR Machine” Brown
    WR2 D Jax
    TE J Graham
    D/ST Panthers
    Flex Andre Brown or Harvin or Alshon
    K Goskowski
    So my question is : Would you roll a rb or wr at flex most weeks. I prefer the touches rb gets over the wr pos unless itv was a WR 1 like marshall tron etc.

      Think in a PPR and with the change in league rules favoring the passing game, it really depends on matchups moreso than it does position nowadays. I don’t think you can set it and forget it like in year’s past regarding RB over WR.

    Chiefs get Washington, Oakland, and Indy in the playoffs. They should be fine…

      I wouldn’t assume that, personally.
