TONIGHT! we answer the question to why Mike Tolbert is relevant. How does anyone in Carolina notice when his name isn’t Newton, not the cookie, the quarterback!  Why do Americans love their football so much and their politicans so little, tell me your thoughts at #idiotsrule. Why does this only sound good in my own head when I do this in a Steven Colbert voice? Maybe it’s the three beers and three glasses of scotch I’ve had. I don’t know, you can watch the real Colbert Report if your are already tired of this. In the spirit of the Colbert Report we will do the Word about Mr. Tolbert. He’s scored 3 on the ground and 2 through the air this year. All of those TD’s came in victories for the Panthers. Like any owner of the most relevant fullback in football, we hope Señor Rivera sees this too and decides to give him a chance to score every week because Tolbert +TD = VICTORY….for them and you. He’s a great bye week filler and will be someone to watch for match ups every week. I think the risk is similar to Danny Woodhead earlier in the year when we were unsure whether to start him or not for fear of touches. With the Panthers on a roll, I would go big, literally and send Tolbert out there if you have the need. He faces the Falcons this week who are competing with the Texans for biggest disappointment of the year award.

Thanks to injuries we got to see some people get chances to shine. Andre Ellington looked good for the Cardinals and THEY CRUISED to an easy victory. For those of you that follow Sky or Murph on Twitter, the Bruce Arians jokes are hilarious and abundant. We would like to see things stay the same going forward, but I think the reality is when Rashard Mendenhall is healthy we see them go back to the frustration zone. Mike James had a decent game last week while filling in for Doug Martin, oh that’s if you are in a carries or 1 point PPR league and I still wouldn’t start him unless I absolutely had no other choice. DeMarco Murray might be back, but I would hold Joseph Randle. I don’t think the Cowboys need him against Minnehaha and he might be a game time decision. Follow JB Gilpin on Sunday morning for the latest updates and advice on that situation. You should start stashing Andre Brown, Shane Vereen,  and Donald Brown. Andre Brown and Vereen should be back soon and they are going to be relevant as we start to gear up for the playoffs. I think this is the make or break week for Trent Richardson in Indy. Donald Brown is breathing down his neck and the Colts are playoff bound. I hope everyone had a great Halloween, I went trick-or-treating, carved pumpkins, and worked a carnival, all in the same day. I’m tired and really need to watch TNF highlights which I missed on account of this great holiday.

FUZZY HANDCUFFS - They’re fun, sexy, and when someone breaks them out it’s good times ahead

1) CJ Spiller (Fred Jackson, Tashard Choice)

2) Ryan Matthews (Danny Woodhead, Ronnie Brown)

3) Rashard Mendenhall (Andre Ellington, Alfonso Smith, Stepfan Taylor)

4) Darren Sproles (Pierre Thomas Khiry Robinson)

5) Reggie Bush (Joique Bell)

6) Giovanni Bernard (BenJarvus Green-Ellis)

7) Arian Foster (Ben Tate, Greg Jones, Javarris Williams)

STANDARD ISSUE POLICE CUFFS – Ever sat on a curb while your car was searched? Been in the back of a cruiser piss drunk after getting this ridiculous haircut….in week 6? Get caught by Five-O while taking a leak behind a dumpster and were worried you would have to register as a sex offender for indecent exposure? Like the strength of those cuffs, these cuffs are worth owning or being heavily watched in 10 team and up leagues. These backs are in split situations, have fuzzy cuff potential, and are solid fill ins when the starter is out.

8)  Steven Ridley (Brandon Bolden, LeGarrette Blount, Shane Vereen)

9) Bilal Powell (Chris Ivory, Tommy Bohanon)

10) David Wilson ( Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox, Brandon Jacobs, Andre Brown)

11) Doug Martin (Mike James, Brian Leonard)

12) DeAngelo Williams (Mike Tolbert, Jonathan Stewart, Kenjon Barner)

13)  Trent Richardson (Donald Brown, Daniel Herron)

14) Alfred Morris (Roy Helu, Evan Roysteer)

15) Steven Jackson (Jaquizz Rodgers, Jason Snelling)

16) Knowshon Moreno (Ronnie Hillman,  Montee Ball)

17) DeMarco Murray (Joseph Randle,Phillip Tanner,Lance Dunbar)

18) Willis McGahee (Chris Ogbonnaya, Fozzie Whittaker) 

19) LeSean McCoy (Bryce Brown, Chris Polk)

20) Chris Johnson (Shonn Greene, Jackie Battle)

DUCT TAPE - Handcuffs of the homemade variety? Hey, you might be in a pinch and looking around your garage and you find man’s 2nd best tool, don’t make me explain our 1st. In the right instance they can be as secure as Tehol at a Victoria’s Secret model party or as volatile as Jaywrong trying to navigate the dating scene in the D.C. area. The thing with duct tape is you never know how it’s going to hold up, I’ve seen it last anywhere from a day to 10 years, you never know. These backs may be sexy but we’ll never know, back up studs, or are left for dead on really bad teams.  Add at your own risk of never playing them.

21) Frank Gore (Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, Anthony Dixon)

22) Eddie Lacy (James Starks, Johnathan Franklin )

23) Ray Rice (Bernard Pierce, Shaun Draughn)

24) Darren McFadden (Rashad Jennings, Marcel Reece)

25) Zac Stacy (Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead, Benny Cunningham)

26) Lamar Miller (Daniel Thomas, Mike Gillislee, Marcus Thigpen)

27) Marshawn Lynch (Robert Turbin, Christine Michael)

28) Matt Forte (Michael Bush, Michael Ford)

29) Maurice Jones Drew (Justin Forsett, Jordan Todman)

30) Jamaal Charles (Knile Davis, Cyrus Grey)

31) Le’Veon Bell (Felix Jones, Johnathan Dwyer)

32) Adrian Peterson (Toby Gerhart)

    Who’s a better bench stash in a vacuumm going forward. K.Davis or Crabtree? Would you drop Burleson for them?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: It’s a push. I’d hold Burleson only because you might get to use him. But Crabtree might be good to go for the playoffs and I like the gamble on him.

  2. Zar says:
    (link)

    I want to pick up Ellington now before someone else gets him, who should I drop? I have Doug Martin and sjax, Colston, Lamar miller, and Julius Thomas, and blackmon. I don’t want to drop Thomas cause front will be out next week. Any ideas in who should go? Should I cut martin since he looks questionable to return? Arghh

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Zar: who are your other RB’s? Is this PPR?

      • Zar says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: non PPR. My starting rbs right now are le veon bell and zac Stacy.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Zar: then I could see dropping martin. I would also consider starting Miller over Bell going forward.

      @Clubber Lane: I don’t like Stewart as a stash. I would want more receiver depth. Kap is to hit or miss. 50/50

      @Prez: IDP can be a game changer. I would love to trade one of my LB’s. It’s funny, my first season writing has been my worst performance wise. I need to balance my shizz. I’m writing for baseball this year too….no money leagues this year

  5. Stump the Schwab says:
    (link)

    Have RB depth(T Rich, R. Bush, GOB, FJAX, P. Thomas) and no WRs (T. Williams, S. Johnson, M. Jones, TY Hilton).

    Deal Fred Jackson for Keenan Allen or Larry Fitzgerald? Thanks!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Stump the Schwab: I’d try and move T – Rich first, I do like Keenan better than Fitz ROS. Seriously, I would aim higher first with all the talent you have….Is this a PPR?

  6. Thom says:

    L. Moore, Amendola or Tolbert (available FA) in a 10 team PPR. Thanks!

      @David: Its Jacksonville, what else is available?

  8. David says:
    (link)

    Also would you trade Gio and Denarius Moore for Demarco Murray in a .5PPR?

    Other RB’s are AP, Lacy and Vereen. Other WR’s are Dez, Antonio Brown, Keenan Allen, Marvin Jones and newly picked up Mike Brown.

    Thanks

    • J-FOH says:

      @David: No, I don’t like it

    Tolbert over Mike James in a standard league?

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Robert: I would, better chance for a TD….damn that is a scary statement. I figure since they couldn’t get Martin into the endzone that getting James should be just as difficult

  11. Dan says:
    (link)

    Trade Andre Johnson and Trent Richardson for Demarco Murray?

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Dan: I wouldn’t.

      • Dan says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

        If it makes a difference, Trent is my RB2. I have to roster 3 WR’s and a FLEX. My WR’s are A. Johnson, S. Johnson, Boykin, Colston, Hopkins, Harvin, Burleson

        I have a lot of WR depth and it might make sense to upgrade at RB even though its not a balanced trade.

        • J-FOH

          J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Dan: then I would try and get a healthy running back. Murray has his history and I don’t like the deal because of that….and that I would like to see him play a healthy game first. I was reading the Colts are looking to get Trent out in space this week. You might want to hold til next week and see what Trent does this weekend

          • Dan says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: Thank you for saving my season. I didn’t do the trade.

              @Dan: tragedy averted

  12. Principle Blackman says:
    (link)

    I have to start two of Ryan Mathews, Trent Richardson, and Darren Sproles in my .5PPRush/1PPR/Ret Yard league. I am leaning towards starting Mathews for sure, if only because he seems like a lock for 15-20 touches. I am torn between Sproles and Richardson. They both have a ton of upside, and generally, I like them both better than Mathews, but I am Sproles isn’t really getting touches in the backfield, and Richardson has just been a major disappointment.

    • Principle Blackman says:
      (link)

      @Principle Blackman: So, if its not clear, my question is which two would you start given the .5 ppr rush factor?

      Thanks. And good luck this week.

      • J-FOH

        J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Principle Blackman: I hate to say it but with those settings I would start Matthews and Richardson.

  14. Robert says:

    Half my team on byes, Colston highly questionable. If I bite the bullet and drop Colston, who is my best option: Aaron Dobson or David Nelson?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You’re looking for upside not floor if Colston is getting dropped: Dobson

      • Robert says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Ok. Don’t want to drop, but nobody on bench.

    non PPR league. Who put in Flex spot?

    1. Fred Jackson (vs KC has me worried)
    2.DeAngelo Williams (good matchup but muddled backfield and doesn’t get goal line carries)
    or
    3.Antonio Brown (@NE. not great matchup (Patriots give up 7th fewest fantasy pts to WRs but he gets a lot of targets.
