I found it fitting to quote the Doors classic “The End” to signal the finale to our FFB season. If your championship is next week then I feel sorry for you because your commish is really bad at his/her job and deserves all the condemnation that is coming to them. Now back to this whole “The End” thing, this is it for me, next week is my awards show, which reminds me that I need to grab my tuxedo T-Shirt from the dry cleaners, and all we have are the real life playoffs. *makes hip thrusting motions at monitor* My Broncos are in, what about your teams? Now is the time to show all your “skills” and hopefully the people you choose will play all four quarters, get their projections +, and they don’t suffer some game ending injury that makes you look terrible at fantasy because when your guys get hurt it’s all your fault. How stupid must we be to play a guy that gets hurt, didn’t you get the crystal ball that came in the box of Captain Crunch? We need to keep a few things in perspective, play smart but not over think ourselves, look at the floor vs. the ceiling if it’s close and keep a box of tissues with us at all times on Sunday. The best thing about this week is we have no TNF, which IMO, is the worst thing the NFL has done since allowing this jackass back in the league. Oh wait, that’s right, they have no integrity…or soul, they can play god with fines for questionable hits and suspend people for smoking some weed but this a**hole gets to play every week? WTF is wrong with this picture?….besides that dudes hair. Hey look it’s a fantasy paragraph below, let’s check it out. Actually two paragraphs down are fantasy sports, the next one is fantasy becoming reality, go ahead Kid A, insert your snark now.

Before I continue to the weird scenes inside the goldmine I have to gloat about the best three-way man date I had with our fearless leader SKY and the Grand Poobah of them all Mr. Grey Albright. It’s like hanging with Eric B and Rakim or Eazy-E and Dr. Dre or Captain and Tennille if that’s where your mind imagines nirvana. As some of my readers know, I have already spent time with Sky, but having him with Grey is like when they put the stones together in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. They might have gone to the Playboy mansion the next day but I’m ok with it (I’m not) I got to spend time and kiss ass to ensure my job security. Oh and if you don’t play baseball, get your ass over there and start following Grey and sign up for an RCL this year. If you already play then still get your ass over there and start prepping yo’s! I will be writing the Closer Report and Bullpen Report this year and if you like my drivel then come on over, we won’t bite…

Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end

Knile Davis – Last week we liked Knile Davis because the Chiefs were suppose to blow out the Raiders and we would assume we would get 2 quarters from Charles and 2 from Davis. Well that was a big NOPE! Andy Reid, that master of awesome and the winner of the most looks like a walrus contest, pulled out his smart guy hat and left Charles in for three quarters so he can run up his totals for god knows what reason. Yeah, it made no sense and makes it clear now why he got the boot in Philly. He can get them to the dance but can’t seal the deal later in the backseat. That was then this is now, we need to move forward and keep our learning caps on nice and tight because in real life coaches can F**K you in these closing weeks with how they manage their rosters. Oh, and I would be cautious with Davis this week, playing him could be against menial advice.

Desperately in need…of some…stranger’s hand

In a…desperate land….

Ben Jarvis Green Ellis – He is still owned in 62% of leagues, which if my math is correct means he’s available in 48% of leagues? Nope, that’s not a typo or bad math, my high school football coach always told us to give %110 anytime we are on the field, and with this being about as close as most of you will ever get to the field then I say let’s give it %110. That has nothing to do with math, and really guys, this is football, not baseball where math and one of those graphing calculator doohickees is needed. If he’s there I would heavily consider him a flex play. After that weird game last week where the Steelers scored 21 in the 1st quarter and the Bengals abandoned the run, I think it’s safe to look at the law firm again. They play Minnesota who sucks all over the defensive side of the ball allowing the 7th most points to RB. Here’s the rub, no Prezzi, I’m not giving you that kind of rub, the Bengals should build a lead and then protect GOB and let the law firm pound it out to run out the clock. If you are scarce on plays then go ahead and insert the man with the longest name in the league deep into your roster.

Jordan Todman – He had a nice game last week, rushed for over 100 yards (109), averages 4.4 YPC, caught 4 balls on 8 targets. I liked it a lot, I even wonder if MJD is capable of that anymore? Word on the street is MJD is questionable with a good chance of not playing. If this is the case then I would absolutely plug Todman into my line-up and play him in the hopes one day you can tell your grandnerds about the time you won your Fantasy Football Championship with this nobody named Todman, a back up on a bad team that got hot at the end with a matchup more delicious than this tasty looking treat. If MJD is a no show then Todman is a yes thank you please!

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall

Matt Asiata - our resident turban wearer has already said to CRAM Mr. Asiata this week and I will have to agree with him. The rest of the Vikings backfield should play so if you have any thoughts of getting another cheap three then you are dead wrong. Even if by chance he does play because AP and Toby can’t go he’s still a no go. They play the Bengals and he won’t do squat against them. 

Edwin Baker – He falls into the group that contains Mr. Asiata. He looked good last week and if he gets some play he goes against a tough run D. The Browns claim they want to give him a look to see what they have and if that’s the case you still don’t want to play him this week. If you are playing in the championship next week then he’s a maybe, but to know how I really feel about week 17 championship games then please read above or a few of my past posts. If you are in a real bad spot this week and your only options are RB’s on the Cardinals, Saints, or any back not named Vereen on New England then I would take a chance on Baker. Marcel Reece made the Jets look foolish a few weeks ago. Could happen again, but I wouldn’t count on it.

C’mon baby, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the blue bus

Montee Ball – Here’s my PPR shocker special. I like Mr. Ball, he has been getting better and is developing into the guy the Broncos hoped he would be when they drafted him last spring. He’s looked solid of late and is building towards a breakout. I think if it’s going to happen, it’s going to be this week. Over the last 4 weeks, excluding last weeks 3 carry for -1 yards, he has averaged 6.6 YPC on 33 carries. In those 4 games he has caught 12 balls out of the backfield. I could see 12-15 carries for 60+ yards and a TD with 3-4 catches for 45 yards this week with a lot more possible. The Broncos could get up big early and let Montee go all wrecking ball on the Texans. If you are in a spot in your PPR league and are not loving the PT cruiser match up this week then I would go with Ball over him. Throw me your match ups in the comments if you own Ball and I will give you my best. I like him this week and I stand by that. And with that this is the end!

This is the end
My only friend, the end
It hurts to set you free
But you’ll never follow me
The end of laughter and soft lies
The end of nights we tried to die
This is the end

    Leaning toward starting Ball at FLEX in my championship. I also have Moreno and feel like the yards and tds will be there between the two of them (though they weren’t last week). Other options are:

    Andre brown, Andre Caldwell, Andre Holmes, Justin hunter, Riley cooper

    Thanks!

      @KCC26: Are those your only other options?

      @KCC26: Is this a PPR? If so at what denomination

      • KCC26 says:

        @J-FOH: sorry it’s 0.5 ppr. Should have said that initially!

          @KCC26: I think Caldwell is very risky, the floor is low but the ceiling is huge. I think you go with Moreno

    10 team Championship game this week for this guy! QB -
    Cutler, Big Ben, Romo RB – McCoy, Charles, Rashad Jennings, Ball,
    Andre Brown WR – Calvin, Alshon, AJ Green Question is this… Who
    at QB, which 3 at RB (does McCoy suit up if Cowboys win?), which 3
    at WR (if Lions win, will Jeffery play?)

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @mwmoose152: You listed 3 WR’s and asked which 3 to play? All of them? Why the hell wouldn’t Jeffrey play if the Lions win. The Bears need to win ESPECIALLY if the Lions win.

      Either way, be sure to not make any lineup decisions except for kicker and feel really proud of someone else winning the SB for you.

        @Cram It: pretty neat when misanthropes talk about “pride”. dude probably pulls out moth’s wings for fun, or frog gigging.

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @mwmoose152: Cutler, McCoy, Charles, Jennings, and the 3 WR’s you listed. Alshon plays

  3. Robert says:

    Two questions – PPR League, Woodhead, Fitzgerald or Jennings at flex?

    And, yeah this hurts, but week 17 counts for our yearly point total, and I’m in the hunt for the big $ year end point total prize in a 12 team PPR league.

    I’ve got McCoy, Morris and Woodhead at RB. Would you grab Turbin or Edwin Baker for week 17 over any of those 3? Guessing McCoy will be in for a big day vs. the Cowboys, less sure about Morris against the Giants, and who knows what the Chargers will do with Woodhead when they host the Chiefs?

    Thank you!

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Robert: I would grab Baker and if he looks good this weekend then I would play him over Woodhead.

      What Jennings for the Flex?

      • Robert says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:
        Ooops – Greg Jennings! Sorry about that. He’s done 21, 10 and 34 the last 3 weeks with Matt Cassell

        Thanks again

    Jack! Glad to hear you’ll be writing on the baseball side of things next season. Looking forward to it! Am I still gonna be in one of your RCL leagues? Is there some kind of frat-like initiation that has to go on first? Do I have to wear a thong everyday for an entire year? Because if so, jokes on you, I already do!

    Seriously though, I’m starting Todman over Knoshown in a 1/2PPR league. Sky’s rankings agree with that call. What you say?

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Shake N Bacon: I agree. we’ll meet up in the comments on the baseball side and figure the league out. now wear the thong backwards

      • Shake N Bacon says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Ha, sir yes sir.

        So you’re a Bronco fan. You from Colorado? Living in Colorado? I’m in Bronco territory and the people here are pumped up. I’m silently rooting for a Chiefs/Seahawks Superbowl, but a Broncos/Seahawks superbowl would be my second choice.

        Catch you on the baseball side

          @Shake N Bacon: No sir, I live in LA. My dad’s family is from Colorado and my uncle has been a season ticket holder from day one. My dad actually went to their first exhebition game as a kid

          • Shake N Bacon says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: Nice! Hopefully you get to take advantage of that and get to see a game or two once in a while.

            First game huh. That’s pretty cool.

    I need to sit one of these 3 in a .5PPR out of Adrian Peterson, Gio, and Todman which do I sit?

    Also in a .5PPR Ryan Griffin or Charles Clay I like Griffin as a sleeper but I’m scared to start him what you think??

    Thanks

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Dave: AP is a sit for me. I would gamble on griff

      • Dave says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Wow thats rough for me to sit AP for Todman. Is it because Todman’s safer? I’m a bit of an underdog in the finals so I wanted to start AP for his upside.

        • Cram It says:
          (link)

          @Dave: Then don’t offer him as an option to sit if you don’t like the answer.

          @Dave: I don’t like the matchup and I don’t like the possibility of him not playing a full game if it’s a blowout or he tweeks something again

    I have received great wisdom from you this season, so one more time. Chapionship game: Kaepernik vs ATL or Cousins vs DAL?

    Who would you start as your second WR and flex in a standard league out of Garçon, Andre Johnson and Stacy? Thanks!

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Randy: Garcon and Johnson in a PPR and Garcon and Stacy in standard. I don’t like the Schaub to Johnson potential for TD’s.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: is schaub playing again? I thought that coach actually wanted to keep his job.

        • J-FOH

          J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: yup, Keenum is out

  9. Zar says:

    Non PPR. Todman, Stacy, or Jennings for 1 rb. Also crabs or edelman or Patterson for last we spot? Thanks :D

    • J-FOH

      J-FOH says:

      @Zar: Todman, It’s a push between Crabs and Patterson for me.

    so are you and smokey doing bullpen stuff next year, or did smokey quit?

      @goodfold2: I don’t know what Smokey is doing, I only know what I’m doing and that’s closer and bullpen reports

  11. Kzing says:
    (link)

    How much do you trust Johnson with Schaub throwing to him? Would you replace him with Crabtree? Also, would you then put in Pitta, Douglas, Hunter, Ellington or Rodgers at Flex?
    Right now I have Johnson, D.Thomas at WR and Crabtree at flex
    Thanks!’

      @Kzing: I like Johnson over Crabtree

  12. Aaron says:
    (link)

    championship game and I need help. (non ppr)
    who would you start?

    Foles or Romo (pick 1)

    Edelman, Kendall Wright, Jordy Nelson (pick 2)

    Thanks!

    • J-FOH
