This might seem like an inappropriate proposition when our lead this week has only 19 carries for 90 yards on the year with zero rushing TD’s, but trust me, I’m writing this with the best of intentions. Danny Woodhead was the apple of Phillip River’s eye this past weekend with his 5 catches for 54 yards and 2 TD’s. “But Jack, those are his only two TD’s on the season?” That is correct diligent commenter, but please let me finish. On the year he is second on the Chargers with 22 receptions, has provided a different look  in the backfield with his 4.7 YPC and looks like he uses “what’s up brah” as a greeting. If you are looking for a bye week flyer or a potential PPR flex then look no further than Woodhead. Am I the only one here giggling every time I say his name? Before I move on to the ranks I want to pay my final respects to the 2013 Fantasy Baseball Season. It was one hell of a ride for those of us in the RCL and to my frequent commenters, I say thank you for making the ride that much better. Now I can fully throw myself into football, my 2nd fantasy love, and say goodbye to my old friend fantasy baseball. I was recently comforted by frequent commenter Kid A when he said that fantasy football was his methadone for fantasy baseball.  Now I can sit back and drink my nice warm cup of fantasy methadone and give my proper dues to this icon and this icon. Without these two, none of this would be possible and with that I want to encourage all the Fantasy Footballers to give baseball a shot. Razzball makes the game that some view as meh, if you follow the guys on CBS, fun and a really good ride. Now on to the ranks…

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

1) Reggie Bush (Joique Bell (0) 11 touches and 42 total yards with zero TD’s.  Was this a back to earth game or was this a Bush is on fire game and lets keep giving him the ball? I’d still use him in my flex in 12 team and deeper leagues and as a bye week filler…..or ahead of Daryl Richardson

2) CJ Spiller (Fred Jackson (+3), Tashard Choice) Monster TNF game for Jackson, 21 touches and 2 rushing TD’s. On the season TD’s – Jackson:4 Spiller:1

3) Arian Foster (Ben Tate (0) got 8 touches to Fosters 33, not promising, but is still the best back up in the game. Hold tight here.

STANDARD ISSUE POLICE CUFFS – Ever sat on a curb while your car was searched? Been in the back of a cruiser piss drunk after running into a tree before a big home game against the Colts?…too soon? Get caught by one time 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.

4) Eddie Lacy (Johnathan Franklin (+5), James Starks (0) Not sure who is the starter this week and can’t wait to see how this one pans out. I would swoop any left out there until we know, or we may never know. Who knows?  Most likely not a garbage time week for the Packers vs the Lions.

5) Ryan matthews ( Danny Woodhead (+8) Ronnie Brown) He’s my lead this week….see above

6) Steven Jackson ( Jaquizz Rodgers (+2) Jason Snelling (0) Neither got a ton of carries this past week but Jaquizz had 6 receptions out of the backfield. With S-Jax still out I could see using either as a flex or bye week stand in on Monday night vs. the Jets….if you’re desperate.

7)  Steven Ridley (Brandon Bolden (0), LaGarrette Blount (+5) Blount looked solid in the three headed attack on Sunday night. I still like Bolden going forward but Blount showed up to party and ran through the holes with his 7.1 YPC like a 60’s frat boy in a toga.

8) Rashard Mendenhall (Andre Ellington (+1), Alfonso Smith, Stepfan Taylor) Mendenhall has been blah, his longest rush on the year is 11 yards. I’d stash Ellington if you own Mendenhall….I’d stash him if you don’t.

9) Ray Rice (Bernard Pierce (0), Shaun Draughn) Pierce’s 2.7 YPC is not sexy…not even close, but Rice has been blah with an extra side of meh with his 3.0 YPC. Yeah it’s ugly in Baltimore this year.

10) Darren Sproles (Pierre Thomas (0), Khiry Robinson (+7) Khiry led all Saints rushers on Monday night and has looked strong the past two weeks. If he keeps this up he’s gonna get fuzzy for me. Might not be a bad stash if your grasping at straws.

11) Knowshon Moreno (Ronnie Hillman (+3),  Montee Ball (+2) Hillman has been getting a little more love the past two weeks and he was the announced starter going into the season…..cust kayin’

12) Alfred Morris (Roy Helu (+2) , Evan Royster) Morris hurts his ribs and then gets the bye this week. Follow the injury report next week or this guy …..oops, wrong article, I meant this guy

13) Darren McFaddenn (Rashad Jennings (+3), Marcel Reece (0) With Run DMC hurt and Reece on the mend, Jennings is the only healthy RB in Oaktown. Need a bye week stand in or draft MJD and David Wilson and are desperate to find anything with a pulse, then try Jennings.

14) Giovanni Bernard (BenJarvus Green-Ellis (0) Cincy may not have officially named him the starter but I am. GOB had 16 touches to the Law Firm’s 6. He’s the starter. I’m going to miss GOB, but sometimes your baby’s grow up and leave the bold print.

15) Lamar Miller (Daniel Thomas (+1), Mike Gillislee, Marcus Thigpen) Dolphins averaged 16.6 carries by RB’s the last three weeks…..Blah

16) LeSean McCoy (Bryce Brown (0) , Chris Polk) Injury = RB2

17) Marshawn Lynch (Robert Turbin (0) Christine Michael (0) Nothing to really say here…..Have you caught any of the new TV shows this fall? Thoughts?

18) Daryl Richardson (Zac Stacy (+5) Isaiah Pead, Benny Cunningham) The latest out of St.Louis is there is no starting running back. All the fingers are pointing at giving Zac Stacy a shot. I got him stashed in one league in hoping to catch lightning in a bottle…..uh, I mean 80 yards and a TD.

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.

19) Frank Gore (Kendall Hunter (0) LaMichael James)

20) Bilal Powell (Chris Ivory (0), Alex Green)

21) Chris Johnson (Shonn Greene (0), Jackie Battle)

22) Willis McGahee (Bobby Rainey (0), Chris Ogbonnaya)

23) Matt Forte (Michael Bush (0), Michael Ford)

24) DeAngelo Williams (Mike Tolbert (0) Kenjon Barner (+2)

25)  Trent Richardson (Donald Brown (0), Ahmad Bradshaw) Bradshaw will be out for a while

26) DeMarco Murray (Lance Dunbar (0) Phillip Tanner, Joseph Randle)

27) Maurice Jones Drew (Jordan Todman (0) Justin Forsett)

28) Jamaal Charles (Knile Davis (0), Cyrus Grey)

29) Le’Veon Bell (Felix Jones (0), Issac Redman, Johnathan Dwyer)

30) David Wilson ( Brandon Jacobs (0), Michael Cox)

31) Adrian Peterson (Toby Gerhart (0)

32) Doug Martin (Brian Leonard (0) Mike James)

    Looks like Ridley out and bolden hurting…
    Would u start Edelamn at Flex over Hakeem nicks,Jeffery,or J Bell??
    Thinking Blount doesn’t catch passes so Edelman could get a ton of targets
    Thanks

      @Pete: yes

  3. John E Depth says:
    (link)

    Why so low on Hunter? Seems like if Gore went down, Kendall would be a rb 2 on a run heavy team with little competition….If Knowshon went down it would be a timeshare guess btw Ball/Hillman…same with Stephen Jackson, Sproles, Lacy, Ridley…just trying to figure out the purpose of the rankings bc this type of info is gold with all the crap RBs out there.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @John E Depth: that’s why he as at the top of the duct tape, because it takes an injury for him to get relevance. I don’t think he is as great as you do. It’s always hard to know how well a guy will play with 25 touches. He also has James in the mix and you never know how a team will deal with an injury to their lead back. For example, in Philly it’s obviously Bryce Brown, there is no question and we know what he can do with the job based on last year.

  4. Johnny Hammersticks says:

    I have torrey smith, wayne and david wilson, (started gordon last night). who would you play at second wr, and flex? Do I roll the dice on wilson’s matchup??? Thanks!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Johnny Hammersticks: I would play torrey for sure. Wayne and wilson are a toss up. Wayne goes against Seattle and most likely Sherman and wilson should have a good game. ..on paper but hasn’t shown us anything

  5. Jep says:

    Great read!

    Drop Bryce for Franklin?

    Also, Finley is on waivers and clears tomorrow? Would you use your #1 waiver on him? I have Jimmy and Fleener as TEs.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Jep: Hey Thanks! I would drop Bryce for Franklin

      I think you are in a good TE spot, don’t waste your waiver on Finley

    Yea I’m hurtin pretty good at RB… haha

  8. Cram It says:

    Who you like this week…Snelling or Ellington? Ellington? I do not have my pulse on the Cardinals RB situation. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen one Arizona snap this season.

    • Shake N Bacon says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: I’m no expert, but I have the same dilemma and I’m rolling Ellington out there in my RCL PPR league. I think it’s a close call though. The deciding factor for me was the Jet’s run defense has been stout this year.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: tough call, when they played Buffalo, Jackson had a good game. I think it comes down to touches and format, with Ellington you can count on 7ish touches and get targeted 7-8 times. That is great for upside. With Snelling it’s hard to know with how Jaquizz has played.

  9. TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
    (link)

    Can only start two of these bros, who should I go with?
    MJD @ STL
    David Wilson vs. Philly
    Lamar Miller vs. Ravens
    Run DMC vs. Chargers (probably isn’t playing)
    Thanks.

    • TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
      (link)

      @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: forgot to mention its ppr. MJD is projected the most but he’s been awful, like really terrible.

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: your options are not great. I own MJD and Wilson in a PPR, and am sitting MJD and playing Wilson this week. If the Giants actually have a lead then Wilson could get some run out the clock time which is what he badly needs.

    What the shizz is going on in New England? Is Ridley really hurt or is Bellichick playing Shannahanigans? Blount’s YPC is inflated by one run where the hole in the ATL D-line was big enough for a T-Rex. What gives?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @marcus allen was good al: do you need to make the drop before Sunday? I would say Ellington only because I would want to see what Green Bay is going to do with Franklin. Ellington’s role may not be significant for a few more weeks

        (link)

        @J-FOH: yea the drop has to be before Sunday. Picked up woods w my kicker spot and forgot to drop him or one of the backs before Thursday nt. Need wr help but don’t love tuel! Lol. Tough spot on Ellington vs Franklin. Thx!! Still torn there tho

    I own roddy white and given the latest news I’m pretty well ready to cut ties. I had an original offer for rody white for mjd. He countered with roddy white/knowshon Moreno/Shane vereen for mjd and Wes welker. .5PPR
    Vereen is pretty much a stash for me as I’m 1-3 and need to win sooner than later. Like either of these trades? Thanks!
    Qb – Brady
    Wr – Calvin
    Wr – decker
    Rb – forte
    Rb – Moreno
    Te – cook
    Flex – roddy white
    Bench – leveon bell, Bryce brown, Brandon Meyers, vereen, Brandon bolden

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: I’d take the MJD and Welker side. Having Bell makes this possible

      • Oppo Taco says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: he cancel that offer an repriposed trading his mjd for my roddy white? White should be productive when healthy but there’s not timetable for that, and mjd is in the worst offense in the league. Which side would you prefer? Thanks

        • Oppo Taco says:
          (link)

          @Oppo Taco: I might also be able to get colston instead of welker in that trade, he said he’s set on holding on to welker.

            (link)

            @Oppo Taco: if you could colston thats nice, with the MJD for White deal I like the MJD side, here’s to hoping he turns it around

  18. Ringo says:

    H2H… Standard Scoring… 16 Team League

    QB = Michael Vick (PHI) —– QB = Terrelle Pryor (OAK)
    RB = C.J. Spiller (BUF) —– RB = Andre Ellington (ARI) —– RB = Rashad Jennings (OAK)
    RB = Lamar Miller (MIA) —– RB = Roy Helu Jr. (WAS)
    WR = Dez Bryant (DAL) —– WR = Josh Gordon (CLE)
    WR = Demaryius Thomas (DEN)
    TE = Rob Gronkowski (NE)
    FLEX = (Almost always Josh Gordon)
    K = Garrett Hartley (NO)
    DEF = St. Louis Rams (STL) —– DEF = Dallas Cowboys (DAL)

    Should I trade Andre Ellington for Justin Blackmon? If Ellington was my RB4 I probably wouldn’t even ask but I worry about my RB depth. I can also still add Stacy or Cunningham off the wire. Do I pick one of them up? and who might I drop in that case?

  19. J-FOH says:
    (link)

    I’d drop St. Louis for Stacy right away

    I’d take that deal, you have such great WR’s you may be able to deal one later if all your RB’s go flat

    • Ringo says:
      (link)

      @J-FOH:

      Thanks for the response.

      I simply cannot drop STL defense. I would be forced to start DAL against DEN and DEFs playing DEN are scoring -1 points. I feel DAL is a keeper DEF too so this is not an option for me. If DAL was playing pretty much anyone else I would do that in a flash but Peyton is cockblocking that move this week *sigh*.

      I am super reluctant to rely on the trade market, especially trying to get a RB. Even more so trying to trade a WR for a RB. Getting RBs are next to impossible in that league. I think this trade offer is very emblematic of this. I would probably have to sell a WR short. Plus I would have to give a RB back in return for sure.

      And just for good measure I have another stupid wrinkle and I have to pick up a Gronk caddy at TE this week. So I am going to have to drop a RB for that TE so I don’t put up a zero there aswell. I would most likely drop Jennings as I am not starting him this week and his value figures to plummet back down once Reece and eventually DMC come back.

      Does any of this info affect the Q & A?

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Ringo: my first question is there another defense available besides St. Louis?

        If thats the case, I’d drop Helu and jennings to get Stacy and the TE. Then hold ellington, you don’t need Blackmon

        • Ringo says:
          (link)

          @J-FOH:

          I was literally just checking out ATL DEF actually. Then I came here to see if there was a reply. They are seem to be the best still available. After that there are just the bottom feeders PHI, IND, NO, NYJ, NYG, JAC, and OAK left over.

          So long story short you would rank Stacy at the top of that trio of Stacy, Helu, Jennings… Interesting. I am gonna go grab Stacy right now.

          Thanks again. This analysis is just outstanding. Some times we fantasy owners need a kick in the pants. I am very reluctant sometimes as you can tell. I appreciate every ounce of help though.

          • J-FOH says:
            (link)

            @Ringo: I would stream the ATL this week. surprised no one grabbed them

            I look at the Stacy situation like this. If he’s the man this weekend then you have to contend with waivers next week. I would drop Jennings for Stacy and St.Louis for ATL

                @Ringo: please look at the season performances of the NO and NYJ defenses before saying they are somehow waiver trash, esp when compared to ATL’s def.

                (link)

                what’s the chances t-gonz +4.14 pts in a PPR will beat ATL’s def tonight, around 7 to 3 or so? that’s the chance i will get my first win in RCL league tonight.

  20. RICK says:
    (link)

    Starting Forte and Lacy at RB1 and RB2. Jordy and Josh Gordon at WR1 and WR2. However, who would you start at the flex spot from the following:

    Knowshon Moreno at Dallas
    MJD at St. Louis
    Steve Smith at Arizona
    Justin Blackmon at St Louis

    Leaning toward Moreno because he seems to get more usage in competitive games.

    • J-FOH says:

      @RICK: I would start Moreno at RB2 and Steve Smith in the flex…..show Lacy the bench. He’s suppose to split time with Franklin this week

    Vareen is on the wire in my league. First time we are doing a keeper and the commish set it up so that any free agent waiver adds can be kept as an 8th round pick next year. Thoughts on making that add and sacrificing that spot for some time?

      • Whodtthr says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH:

      @Chris Knudsvig: I like that better. You are really putting yourself in a tough RB spot. Will have to play the matchups every week outside of Bush. Be sure to follow sky’s weekly ranks.

    Just traded David Wilson for Gio Bernard, but what I really need is a WR. What do you think is a fair asking price, is Colston too high, Antonio Brown too low? What about Josh Gordon.?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Kobayashi Maru: I always start high, nice trade either way

      @Pocket Hercules: yikes!…. Johnson

      Thanks, I’m glad you liked it

    I need a player to stash on IR. PPR league. What order would you place Jonathan Stewart, Andre Brown or Michael Crabtree?

    • J-FOH says:

      @Mike: Crabtree

    Wait isn’t Lacy the clear starter in GB and Franklin the change of pace? I’m starting Lacy this week so you got me worried lol

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Dave: I have read that Lacy is the starter and will split time. What that split is, who knows? I’m not starting either this week but if you must then start Lacy.

      • Dave says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Damn with all the Ridley problems I was hoping Lacy can break out for me as an RB2 hopefully he separates himself

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Dave: well if your only other option is Ridley then I say play Lacy. What are your RB options?

          • Dave says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: I was saying generally my RB’s are all falling in value. But my other RB’s are AP whos on a bye, then Ridley, Lacy, Blount (just picked him up), Woodhead. I could start Woodhead and Blount and put Tavon Austin instead of Lacy in the flex or I can just start all 3 of Blount, Woodhead, and Lacy.

            I was confident in starting Lacy as most sites like Rotoworld and CBS saying he’s the feature back with Franklin sprinkled in on some 3rd downs didn’t know it might be a committee.

            • Dave says:
              (link)

              @Dave: And its .5 PPR btw

              • J-FOH says:
                (link)

                @Dave: Well Ridley is out this weekend so he’s off the table. I’d go Woodhead and Lacy as your RB’s and Tavon Austin in your flex.

                I don’t know where these writers get their info from, last I read yesterday, and this is a direct quote from McCarthy:

                McCarthy wouldn’t say whether Lacy or Franklin will start at running back or how snaps would be split up. Sorry, fantasy footballers.

                ”I look at Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin both as three-down backs. How the reps sort out, the way the game unfolds, that’s why you play the game,” McCarthy said. “But I view both those guys as three-down backs.”

                I don’t get Lacy will be the starter and Franklin as the 3rd down back from this. Sometimes those guys are idiots on the major websites. With that being said and looking at your options and Detroits defense vs. the run, I would start Lacy. I hope it works out.

                • Dave says:
                  (link)

                  @J-FOH: thanks for the info I just searched that and saw that quote, and will do what you said thanks again.

                  • J-FOH says:
                    (link)

                    @Dave: anytime

  32. DDT says:
    (link)

    Drop G. Olsen for Franklin? Olsen is my back-up for J. Graham.

    My other RBs are McCoy, D. Wilson, Ridley, Joique Bell, and McGahee.
    We start RB1, RB2, and an RB/WR flex. Non-PPR.

    Thanx~

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @DDT: tough call, Graham has a bye in week 7 and you’ll need Olsen. I’d hold and try and trade Olsen after week 7.

    thanks for the help and opinion earlier. who do you like better in ppr? terrance williams or stephen hill?

      • marcus allen was good al says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: rt on thx man. heres my team. 16 tm ppr. dropped stephen hill earlier in week for tw. added goodson this week too. so would u rather roster hill or goodson in hindsight w hill due back? pretty competitive lge, surprised hill didnt get swooped.

        qb- romo
        rb- gio, bolden, ellington, hillman, goodson
        wr- calvin, tavon, amendola, terrance williams. (percy on ir)
        te- cameron
        k-bailey
        dst- chargers

  34. marcus allen was good al says:
    (link)

    Ok yea I think I’ll stick w Terrance Williams and get hill back for goodson. Yes khiry is out there. U really think he’ll have a ppr impact? I added him already in dynasty but wasn’t thinkin he’d hold much value in a ppr redraft. Should I reconsider? Thx for the insight

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @marcus allen was good al: I’d keep my eye on him, right now he’s dead even with hillman. Last game he got 1st quarter carries the Saints

      • marcus allen was good al says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: yea i guess you bring a good point that hes even with hillman now. I liked hillman cause i figured he’d be a little more ppr valuable if he got more run but your right that khiry is carvin out a spot in saints rotation and maybe he surpasses hillman, bcuz i dont think hillman has got many targets to date. def think im gonna switch hill for goodson now tho before its too late.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @marcus allen was good al: when it comes to PPR I don’t always have to have a pass catching RB, I think if Robinson has a good game this weekend he’s going to be all over everyone’s radar. I’m a Denver fan and I have no idea what to do/think with their backfield. I hate these clustf**k shituations

  35. marcus allen was good al says:
    (link)

    Amen to that. Those shituations are mental pain lol. Yea I guess sometimes I jus gotta look at jus overall value instead of ppr involvement. Speaking of mental pain tho, who do I take flier on him over? Hillman, hill, Terrance will?? Ugh lol

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @marcus allen was good al: terrance is a solid WR option as long as Austin is out. Hill still plays for the Jets, that means its not great.

      • marcus allen was good al says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: so is that a khiry over hill vote?? Lol. Why not I guess huh? I liked hill as the defacto #1 option in a mohrningwig offense but I guess that said offense is still ran by geno smith and the pretty inept jets. That’s a tough split. Khiry vs hill? This is yet another reason why razzball trumps all. Thanks for your ff love

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @marcus allen was good al: you have a better chance at using Robinson if he breaks out than Hill

  36. marcus allen was good al says:
    (link)

    I love the point there and I love takin a shot! Alright, goin for khiry! Here’s to havin some more touches khiry!! Lol. Thx for the convo. See ya next article! Thx for all the hard work

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @marcus allen was good al: no problem, sometimes you have to gamble on upside vs a decent player on your bench that never plays. Thats the risk we have to take when we don’t draft a perfect team. and if I’m wrong then it’s back to the drawing board next week

      • marcus allen was good al says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: absolutely. And I definitely left myself at need @ rb. Gamble city time and back to the drawing board next week

    Dynasty League trade. We keep 10 players every yr. 0.5 Ppr league. Round values next to each player. Trade my TRich(2) for Gio Bernard (5)? I’m liking how Gio is looking and Trent’s low ypc to start his career is worrying me about him being a bust as a 2nd rounder. Any thoughts?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Mike: tough call. Not that well versed in the dynasty football format. I like them both going forward. would want to see more of Trent in Indy before I make that deal.

    Hello, 12 team .5ppr. Who would you start at RB2, quizz or bolden? (Looks like bolden will get short yardage carries). Also, who would you start at flex? Quizz, Bolden, or mike Wallace? Thanks for the help

  41. Mike says:

    Edelman or joique bell at flex??
    Calvin out…wondering if bumps up bell

    RIddle me this one Jackson:

    Standard League.
    Score for the week stands at 81-76.
    Opponent has no more plays for the week.
    I have one RB slot left to run out there.
    Snelling and Jaquizz on my bench.

    Whose propeller hat do I give a twirl to?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Kid A: Well Hello there Kid A. I’m so glad I get an e-mail every time someone posts on here. Nothing says Monday like a tough question from you. I say Snelling, it’s close, but I think if the Falcons need to pound it out he’s the one. Snelling is the only one to cross the endzone out of that backfield all season either through the air or the ground.

      When the Jets played the Titans they shut down CJ no K and the only back that was effective was Jackie Battle and his pound it out style. That’s the closest comparison I could find on the season. Fred Jackson was the only back to have a good game against the Jets all year.

      Good luck, I hope it works out for you. You should of grabbed Stacy in that league.

      • Kid A says:
        (link)

        @J-FOH: Astute and concise. Much appreciated. I have Stacy there and most everywhere, I just didn’t see he was going to get primary back duties until after kickoff. Depending on the day and my location, my internet sometimes has me pulling a Flinstone jerry-rig with coconuts and a tucan.

        • J-FOH says:
          (link)

          @Kid A: dude, you’re like the professor from Gilligan’s Island.

          Nice grab on Stacy, have you gobbled up Ellington anywhere yet? his stock is building in the right direction?

          • Kid A says:
            (link)

            @J-FOH: I have him everywhere that I have space. I’m a little concerned about the limited snap count talk from Arians. Mendy is so fragile, its just a matter of when, not if…

            I treat players like Ellington, the way Prezzi treats Tranny Dongs: I grab them anytime I can, and pray for the best.

            • J-FOH says:
              (link)

              @Kid A: HAHAHAHAHA…..the classic Brooke Dog….uh I mean Dong. That joke never gets old.

              Ellington is picking up steam with the receptions, great PPR bye week flyer and that guy who wins you a playoff game when Mendy in on the mend. I was talking him up on Guru’s webcast friday night, worst shizz ever.
