Knile Davis is getting some real love from Andy Reid these days. Maybe it was all those layers he had to work through? Maybe it’s because the Chiefs are a lock for the playoffs? I don’t really care, it’s here and it’s real. Reid acknowledges that Knile needs more touches and after last weeks audition I would have a hard time arguing against that. Our valiant leader Sky wrote about Knile already once this week, so at least we know that I really know how to suck up to the boss. Great job Sky! Looking good in that new mock turtle neck! The Chiefs offense is like small ball in baseball, mostly because Smith can’t throw farther than 20 yards, or so it appears, and like to pound it out and dump passes to the closest guy in a red and white jersey. I know I might be exaggerating a little here, but I have my reasons…Whiskey. If Knile gets his shot this week, and I’m 99% sure we see 15 touches from Knile, then what we got here might be a winner. The Broncos lost to the Chargers so the door is open and I think the Chiefs come out and knock the crap out of the Raiders. This leads to Davis getting those touches as they run it out against the Raiders and also evaluate a weapon that has been under utilized. Like Sky said, he’s a flex play this week in PPR formats and is probably in a better UPSIDE position than those with a better floor. Next week is the more ideal, but I could see him getting some run.

You might not be in the championship and you might be playing for pride….you always should play for pride. Regardless of where you are, players are still good to stash and use. Here’s a few others that might make some week 15, 16 and 17 play.

Marcel Reece – with Jennings cleared to play it puts Reece in a bad spot. But like anyone who has come off a concussion knows, he can exit again just as easily. Reece looked nice vs. the 3rd best rush defense last week gaining 123 yards on 19 carries for a 6.5 YPC with a TD. Last week it was suppose to be him and Taiwan Jones filling in for the injured Raiders, but it was really just the Marcel Reece show.  I guess we never know what a coach will do. BTW, Reese is huge, do we have a Glossary term for huge running backs like Reece and Andre Brown?

Denard Robinson – Another one in the grab and stash model. I am really curious as to how the Jags are going to use him and I keep hearing his name thrown around as a candidate. Jones Drew might be out this week with hammy issues and Todman, who’s coming off a shoulder injury, is finally a full participant as of Thursday. He’s a grab and stash but again so is everyone else here.

James Starks – This guy is actually a possible play this week. Lacy has a bum ankle and any sign of real injury cold lead to a little shut down or possibly some time share. Many think Starks is a flex play this week and I have to agree with them. He is also a candidate to get some love going forward. I think Lacy might get an early vacation pass but he also might try and finish the year out to get his OROY award.  Either way, Starks is a great stash and a plug in play in some situations and formats.

Daniel Thomas – He looked great last week filling in for the concussed Lamar Miller and should be getting steady touches going forward. Now if he actually gets those touches depends on Miller and the coaching staff of the Dolphins. Miller was cleared to play this week but I have a hunch that Thomas will be used in the tune of 12-15 touches. On the year Thomas has averaged 4.1 YPC and in games where he gets 9 or more carries has averaged a whopping 5.1 YPC. The last time the Dolphins played the Pats he carried 9 times for 47 yards. Couple that with Miller’s 18 carries and 89 yards in that game and the Dolphins had a nice rushing day vs. the Pats. I like him as a flex this week if you’re in need.

Chris Ogbonnaya – PPR league players have hopefully already grabbed Ogbonnaya and have him stashed after the McGahee injury. If you haven’t yet then go grab him right now….it’s ok we’ll wait for you. OK, good to have you back. Here is the deal with Ogbonnaya, he has had some nice PPR games already this year and is averaging 5.3 YPC on the season. If you have him then your flex is where he needs to hang out. You never know how a guy will perform as a starter but I’m willing to take the gamble and roll him out for the playoffs.

Good luck to my 12 readers in your playoff matchups this week. I’ll be rooting for you all as I owe you for reading my drivel week after week.

    Damn, no comments yet. I’m on a bender and I’m in the mood for stupid people. I think I just told one of Sky’s commenter’s to go shoot himself…

    Seems like a crapshoot weekend for me amongst my starting options. I have to pick 3:

    Andre Brown (RB NYG)
    Alfred Morris (RB WAS)
    Antonio Brown (WR PIT)
    E. Sanders (WR PIT)
    Roddy White (WR ATL)
    Harry Douglas (WR ATL)

    Right now starting Morris, White and Brown (WR).

    Jam it, Cram it, handcuff it or stuff it?

            Stafford
            Green
            Marsh
            Lynch
            Mccoy
            Stream TE
            Gordon

            I missed the playoffs with this team… Ridiculous..

              @Prez: Bananas! I had Stafford alot this year and he seemed to always time his bed-shitting for the exact moment I was going up against some dimwit zombie overachiever team that week. And then he met up with his arch-nemesis, frozen water, last week and blew me out of the playoffs almost everywhere.

              Cheer up though: at least you aren’t like Slap-Happy Jack and losing your own custom designed league to a couple of guys like us…

              Bwahahaha!

                @Kid A: don’t forget about the Guru. It hurts, if I could I would go beat the crap out of T-Rich and David Wilson and whoever broke Rodgers collarbone. But at least I made a league you guys are enjoying and that my fake internet friends is the greatest gift of all

    I need some help with flex this week: Edelman, A. Peterson, Ray RIce, or Michael Floyd?

    I have Lacey and Vereen at RB, and Jackson, Brown at WR

    Thanks!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Abe Froman: Edelman but it’s a real shit show for you. Any better FA grabs out there, Patterson? Ogbonnaya?

      • Abe Froman says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Neither of thos FA’s are available. Da’Rick Rogers, Jeremy Ross, and Justin Hunter are the only FA available that spark any interest really. Going to be a rough week for me!
        Would you start Knile Davis over Edelman? He is out there and I can drop Rice for him
        Thanks again!

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Abe Froman: edelman

  5. Robert says:
    (link)

    With MJD probably out, who should I use for Flex? Todman, Ellington, Ogboannaya
    Also: If Shorts is out, who is the better choice? Harry Douglas or Mike Wallace?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Robert: Ogboannaya and Douglas

  6. Moscowitz says:
    (link)

    Charles, Bernard or Stacy?
    I am already starting Lynch, A.Brown and Vereen.

    Thanks

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Moscowitz: charles

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Moscowitz: I would also start Bernard over Brown

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: i think that meant a. brown (PIT), since he’d be playing 4 RB’s the other way. was he really going to bench j.charles? that’s crazy shit.

  7. Diamondoug says:

    Last minute decisions!
    1. Cutler or Romo?
    2. AZ or SF defense?

  10. W1LDFiRE says:
    (link)

    Trying to make a couple last minute decisions..I’m playing to go to the championship and any advice you’re willing to share would be greatly appreciated. PPR league btw
    QB: Stafford
    RB: Forte
    RB:Vereen
    WR: Dez
    WR: Fitzgerald
    WR:Cruz?
    TE: PItta
    Flex(RBWRTE):?
    D/ST: Bengals or Pats?
    K: Hartley

    Bench: G Tate, Ellington, Delanie Walker, H Miller, Ivory, Harvin, Roethlisberger

    Trying to decided WR3, Flex, and D/ST..Cruz has been disappointing the last 6 weeks or so plus has a tough match up but still leaning towards starting him, agree? Flex I’m trying to decide between Ellington, D Walker, or Tate..and I have no idea which D. Don’ feel very confident in either of them this week. Like I said, any advice you have on who to start or maybe someone to target off free agency, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Help me J-Foh,
    You’re my only hope.
    Standard format
    Flex options: C. Johnson, L Bell, Edelman, or H Douglas.
    I need to choose 1 player.

      @PMF: you sent this after it was too late for edelman or douglas. so out of the other 2 go bell.

  12. goodfold2 says:

    pretty sick the one week dola goes way better than vereen is the semi finals, just days after my this week opp grabs dola, AND i start vereen over bush or j.bell.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: wow, the days when d-jax/jennings/charles hadn’t taken my team into the best pt total of the year. all that’s left is whether or not the DET starting RB should slot back into starting over Vereen or not. First week i start vereen in this league this happened to him.

  13. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    exactly why wasn’t dola used like this all damn year when I owned him.
