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

You’ll notice a reoccurring theme on here.  I really like the show Breaking Bad.  That’s the first part of the theme.  The second part of the theme is I don’t have cable so I’m always behind on everything.  My wife and I are currently acquainting ourselves on the series as a new season finally came out on Netflix this Summer.  We’re going back through seasons one through four – currently close to end of re-watching season two – so of COURSE I’m gonna make a BB reference as my header.  How could I not?  It’s like, I watch football, write football, comment back to football commenters and then watch an episode of BB.  Some would say I’m missing out on life but I say to them a life without those things is missing out by itself.  But more to the point, I can’t wait to see season four and I really, REALLY need you to keep the spoilers at a minimum in the comments.  Wait, no, at a null…a nullimum?  Yeah, don’t tell me shizz, m’kay?  Thanks.  But more to the really, real point, Mr. White.  And to the really, real, specific point, Roddy White.  He’s been terrible so far this year.  But he’s played through it.  Which has also been terrible based on the stats.  Roddy’s currently on pace for 40 receptions, 336 yards and zero touchdowns and has not looked good doing it.  But here’s the reality: he’s gonna get better.  After getting targeted 9 times on Sunday vs the Patriots (more than doubling his previous season high of 4), I’m thinking White’s working his way back into the Roddy of old sooner rather than later.  Plus, one of those targets came in the end zone late in the game for what could’ve been the game winner.  Unfortunately, despite the big numbers Matty Ice had some pretty big misses on the night and that was one of them.  High and away ain’t just a baseball term.  As stated, Roddy’s still not quite there yet but after last night’s performance, I’m thinking he’s on the precipice of what people drafted him for.  Just in time for you to swoop in and say, yo, gatorade me, B@#$%! to Mr. White owners. I still haven’t found a really good way to use that quote.  Doesn’t matter, got it in anyway.  In other buy/sell news for 2013 Fantasy Football…

Terrelle Pryor – I can already hear you now.  Woah, hey there.  I don’t play in 2 QB leagues, brah.  First off, I’m not your ‘brah’.  Secondly, I think we have ourselves a low end QB1 ROS if he stays healthy.  I’ll put it this way: what I thought Russell Wilson would be to fantasy owners has been what Pryor has provided so far.  I know it’s hard to buy someone who seemed to win the starting QB job by default and whose initials are ‘T.P.’, but Pryor has  performed admirably so far this year and I have no reason to think he’ll stop being fantasy relevant.  Probably more relevant to 12 team leagues but the reality is he’ll be playing from behind plenty this year, his legs are a huge asset and he’s been able to throw the ball with more accuracy than many projected.  Check in and see if the owner is concerned about his health and doesn’t need him because he has a top tier QB already.

Marques Colston – I can’t predict how your league will react to what looks like sub-par play that’s really on par play.  The pace for the usual 80/1100/8 is still there for Colston minus the touchdowns.  But something tells me owners are overwhelmingly underwhelmed by this steady high end WR2.  Go down to the Colston Creamery and see how much it would cost to make your own creation.  You can call it the Marques if you want.  Make sure and bring your coupon!

Steven Jackson – This buy call ain’t for the faint of heart.  Jackson has made it clear that if he returns, it will be after the bye week and there’s still a possibility he doesn’t return until week 8.  But for all of that, his first game and first series of the second game (let’s just call it 1 game, shall we?) has been productive: 14/77 on the ground and 6/53/1 through the air.  I’m not gonna pro-rate because it’s silly to off of that small of a sample size but that’s 100 total yards and a TD.  The owner might be desperate for a starter right now.  If you have the time to wait on SJax, you could be handsomely rewarded ROS.  You prefer to be unhandsomely rewarded?  Fine, here.

Mike Goodson – Lottery tickets.  They’re fun and they cost next to nothing.  Goodson has great speed.  It’s unclear how the Jets will use him once he’s back but I’m guessing while Ivory is out, you can see him as the COP/3rd down receiving back to give Bilal a rest.  Funny how the Goodson got a 4 game suspension.  Change last name to Badson and we’re golden.

Khiry Robinson – I throw these names out like Khiry and Brandon Bolden after waivers because no one is paying attention to them.  Ahmad Bradshaw.  He done got the shaft but there’s nothing out there for you to grab, right?  Khiry’s a message in a bottle.  Pull the message out and read it.  It says ‘how awesome were The Police?  Very awesome’.  Now flip it over and read what it says about Khiry.  He had 12 carries on Monday night to Pierre Thomas’ 4 (though he chipped in 5 catches).  We’ve seen obscure backs come out of nowhere and produce in NOLA before.  PT did it.  Then Chris Ivory did it.  Robinson is an ‘I have a WR5 sitting on my bench and don’t know what has gone wrong with my life’ pickup.  This buy is softer than a pat of butter left out on your table during the summer heat.  But it’s still there and might spread easy.  Yeah, I don’t know what I’m talking about anymore.  Moving on.

SELL

Eddie Lacy – Not the biggest name and not a name I’m pushing you to just get rid of at this point.  I have multiple concerns here.  Some personal.  Some pyschological.  But none of those are important in this scenario so I’ll deal with the ones that do.  Firstly, it’s Green Bay.  how much do you believe in GB starting 1 running back on a weekly basis from here on out?  Be honest with yourself here.  It seems like forever since they have.  Secondly, Franklin showed well in the game against Cincy minus the fumble.  Sure, it was costly but it doesn’t negate what he was able to do on the day (13/103/1 and 3/23 through the air) after stepping in for Starks.  I can’t predict the future of any running back scenario but I can see where it’s a quick pull for one guy or the other because their backup has proven they can get the job done.  A lot of people are gonna still think of Lacy as an RB2 and that he’s just going to assume the starting job again.  I’m not on board with that assumption and think this would be a prime time to shop him with no news of splits being talked about right now.  They may never happen but do you wanna be there if/when they do?  Didn’t think so. He’s off his bye which is also a selling point.  Strike while the iron’s hot or before it gets cold in Green Bay…or whatever.  Treat Eddie like he’s on a mannequin in a lingerie store and you’re the owner and sell something Lacy this week.

    I’m tempted to trade MY MJD for David Wilson. Am I crazy?? My other RBs are Ray Rice, RUN DMC and Doug Martin. All of my RBs are underperforming (Muscle Hamster being my most reliable though) I’m just trying to shoot for upside at this point. Should I go for it??

    • gobiggreen says:

      @Black Hippy: The Giants are bound to right the ship eventually, and that absolutely goes for Wilson too. MJD…..the jaguars are horrible. Get off that train.

    as moreno owner I’m guessing i should be interested in Ball now that he dropped tonight? This would be the Heath Miller spot. I realized just after I grabbed him that he’s on bye this week. So if Groink doesn’t miss yet another week longer than the plan the NE deception machine claimed for months i’m guessing that spot should turn into Ball? This spot was also used for a backup to Rodgers, but unless he gets injured i’m not likely to need that. I’m likely gonna have to go Myers this week when Gronk finally gets sat out again.

    I am an unfortunate owner of both Ridley and Bowe. Amazingly, im 3-1. I had Blackmon stashed and I also have Fred Jackson.

    I was going to start Ridley at the Flex, but im leaning towards starting Jackson there and Blackmon over Bowe. What do you think?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Luis: Strained MCL and a short recovery week and it’s against one of the better run defenses in the league. Not a good place to start FJax. I’m fine with Blackmon over Bowe. Don’t have high hopes for either this week, though.

      • Jax are 12-point underdogs. At least we can figure they’ll be playing catch-up (as usual).

    what’s up… 1- Is Goodson worth dropping Ellington?? 2- I just picked up Robert Woods off FA, Good pick or should I grab someone like Jerome Simpson?? I dropped Royal cause I can’t keep these guys on my bench forever. I have Chris Givens, Ellington & Daryl R there the whole season and my starters are breaking. 3- I dropped Bradford for Brian Hoyer, Good or should I grab Shaub if he’s still available??

    • Dropping Brad for Hoy was the right move, even after Sky tells you otherwise.

        Wait, Bradford is playing the Jag-offs? HOLD until NEXT WEEK!!

      @Frank White: 1. No 2. Woods 3. If it’s not a 2QB league, it’s kind of a moot point. 9 weeks out of 10, you’re not starting guys like that.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Well if Eli keeps at it do you think Schaub or Hoyer is a must need on the bench??

          @Frank White: If all those arms are in the waiver pool, stream your QBs. You can add/drop guys like that on a weekly basis. Play matchups. Don’t stay married to Eli.

      @HansC:

      Haha
      btw as a big believer in Razzball & Sky,
      I picked up Pryor, Goodson and Khiry already.
      My bench was trash anyways.
      Hope I get hit on at least one of those lottery tickets.

        Sky says:
        (link)

        @HansC: Ha, thanks! It only takes one…

        Don’t know if I’d want to give up Lynch in that scenario but I’m not as high on Spiller as I was on Lynch in the preseason. It’s fair but it’s a high risk trade. You also might be without Spiller this week. Just something to be aware of you’d need to plan for.

    • Sky: BTW, I never got Hoyer for Cook because I needed a bye-week RB plug (Muscle Ham and Le’Veon on byes) and grabbed Jennings (with the 12th waiver position).

      Still, Hoyer is out there, but now if I want him, I’d have to drop RG3&OUT or Romosexual. Are either worth dropping for Hoy?

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        @James R: I thought you were picking him up for a bye week fill in? But you have Romo? Just start Romo.

    • Brick says:

      @HansC: I’d keep lynch man, in this year of running back shituations he seems to be one of the few solid, weekly producers. Plus White has the whole high ankle sprain thing?

    Would you add Alshon Jeffery for any of these dudes? TY Hilton, Hopkins, Thompkins, Stevie Johnson, Bernard Pierce or MJD. I am really weak at receiver and need to bolster it even at the risk of my RB depth. I have Charles, Sproles, Bernard and Jackson.

    Yo Sky,
    You didn’t call to sell one of my players this week!? Disappointing…
    I also haven’t seen Breaking Bad, so I won’ t be able to spoil it for you…working on House of Cards…so watch out with those references. Thanks!

    If you can only start 2RBs, would you rather have a low end starter like DRich or a minority committee member with some upside (e.g. Ellington) as your 4th PPR RB?

      @the imp: Ha! I know I need to watch House of Cards. Why can’t I spend my days watching the good shizz? Why work, right?

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thanks. DRich will be on the bench (I hope) until week 8 when Foster and Forte hit their bye….but I leaned his way in case a rebound game against the Jags puts make him usable as a sweetner in a 2:1 trade….He is getting nearly 18 carries and rcpts per game, so volume is there.

              • the imp says:

                  Cunningham gets the first shot, I think. Being a healthy inactive last week makes me think Pead isn’t out of the dog house yet with Fisher.

                    (link)

                    @Sky: Sorry. Last question I promise. I can only drop DRich to make the move to Cunningham. Is his tweet alone enough to make you jump ship? If it never resolves the backup plan is to slide over to Ellington.

    I like my team in the abstract, but it’s 1-3 and needs to start winning. Wilson is my QB and that’s been problematic. I still like him overall but am thinking of grabbing TP, at least for this week vs the Chargers. Problem is, my most droppable player is Franklin. Make the move, or stick with Wilson this week?

    Also holding the Bengals D. I usually stream but pulled them off waivers last week and still like them as top 5 overall (and they’ve got some nice playoff matchups if I make it). Don’t really like them vs NE though–drop for ATL? Could also drop Franklin for ATL and hold the Bengals I guess.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: You’re saying Franklin’s the only guy to drop so that’s a hard one for me to call without seeing your team. Defenses are streamable. As much as I like Cincy, you need immediate points. ATL makes sense there. I guess I’d have to say hold on Pryor if that’s all you have to drop. Unless it’s Wilson for Pryor. League size matters there, though.

      • Steve Stevenson says:

      @DDT: I like Jeffrey vs NOLA…should be lots of garbage time for CHI just like last week. I am not sure who Hartline plays this week but hes safer than Givens…but Givens has a ton of upside for a big play vs the lowly Jags so it depends on how you wanna play it.

    CJ2k for R. Wayne
    D. Willy for H Nicks
    D. Willy for Stevie J

    My Team:
    RB – CJ2k, D WIlly, Knowshon, B Tate

    You cool with sending Gore and LeVeon Bell for Foster?

    It would wipe my spare RB depth out, but I figure I can play the wire for that and I’m deep enough at WR to play one in the flex.

        @Sky: Yeah I wouldn’t want to have to. For now it would leave my #3 and #4 RB’s as Ivory and Bolden. 12 team league.

          That’s a pretty big risk to take on and you’d have to play the FA market if those are your backups. Doesn’t look like a sound idea to me.

    Thanks to Razzball advice, I am a combined 7-1 between 2 teams. Just need some advice on two scenarios.

    12 Team Standard – Trade F Jax for Kenbrell Thompkins? Looking for a solid WR2, but dont want to hurt RB depth.

    RBs – T Rich, Gio B, R Bush, F Jax, Roy Helu, Pierre Thomas
    WRs – R Cobb, Stevie J, TY Hilton, Chris Givens

    14 Team Standard – which of the following TEs for ROS?

    Dallas Clark, Kyle Rudolph, Brandon Pettigrew, Scott Chandler, Delanie Walker, or Brent Celek. I know, a bunch of crap here…

      Honestly, I’m not buying the Thompkins story ROS. When Amendola is back, just worried about targets/touches.

      ROS, I gotta go with the guy that has shown the most talent in the past and say Rudolph, especially in standard. Think you should really just stream on a weekly basis if those are your choices, though…

    My team is hurting at 1-3 in a 12tm 0.5 PPR. Need to make a move and get some depth without giving up my top guys (McCoy and Demaryius). There is an 0-4 team with Chris Johnson, Bilal, David Wilson, Roddy White, and V Jax. His qb is Eli, mine is Kaepernick. Thinking of offering Karpernick for 2 of the aforementioned… possibly buying low on Wilson and Roddy. I picked up Schaub in last night’s waivers and trying for Alex Smith on Thurs waivers., prepping for a QB merry go round rest of the season. Do you think this is doable / right move? My full roster below..

    QB – Kaep, Schaub
    RB – McCoy, MJD, Franklin, Bradshaw, Polk
    WR – Demaryius, Amendola, Givens, S Rice (drop for A Smith), Woods, Britt
    TE – Daniels

  41. Brick says:

    Okay, all of my teams are 1-3 right now, but sooooo close to making a turn around, just need Gronk back.

    Thoughts on Givens against Jax this week? I like the matchup, but I’m worried the rams will just start running the ball if they get up early.

    Sorry for the deluge of questions, but i’m stuck with so many middling options I need some second opinions, here’s a few sit/start questions (PPR):

    Pick 3: Givens v Jax, WoodsvCle, Tate v SF, Pierce v Mia, Bolden v CIN

    Pick 2: Hillman @ Dal, Jacquizz v NYJ, Bolden @ Cin, Tate @ SF, Ellington @ Car

    Thoughts on this lineup:
    WR: Marshall v NO,
    WR: hartline v Baltimore
    RB: TRICH v Seattle
    RB: CJ3k v KC
    TE: Gronk? or Celek/Gresham/Dixon/Clark
    Flex: Givens @ Jax

    Subbing any of these bench guys in: bowe, tate, steve smith?

    Thanks Skysenberg

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ha! Say my name!

      Great matchup for Givens, but he’s a WR4 until proven otherwise at this point.

      Pick 3: Don’t trust Bolden’s health right now. He left the game on Sunday for a bit and didn’t come back strong so the other three for me

      Pick 2: Ellington/Tate

      Lineups fine. Celek just as good as any if Gronk doesn’t go. I’d put Steve Smith in over Givens, though.

    Hey Sky,

    Did some waiver activity. Anyhow, no particular needs. Would loved to have added all players: Mike Floyd, Pryor, and Mike Goodson.

    Unfortunately had to drop Floyd for Mike Goodson. Good move? WR depth are Demaryius, Garcon, Miles, and Hopkins. Would like to have added Pryor unfortunately, Stafford won’t be on a bye week till Week 9 so there isn’t any immediate use for him :(

    Lastly, I was thinking of packing a Helu + Hopkins for Mr. White. You dig?

    • Sky

    Daryl Richardson said via Twitter that he’s not starting Sunday’s Week 5 game against the Jaguars.
    Richardson was asked by a fan on Twitter if he’s starting this week. He responded by saying, “not this week man.” On the season, Richardson is averaging just 2.71 YPC and he bottomed out with a 12-carry, 16-yard, one-drop performance against the 49ers last Thursday. It looks like the Rams have decided to bench him. The two candidates to start are Isaiah Pead (who was a healthy scratch last week, possibly for discipline reasons) and undrafted rookie Benny Cunningham. They are both worth roster spots while this mess sorts itself out. Rookie Zac Stacy has been the No. 4 back all year long.

      If you’re concerned about week 6, I still think you drop a WR for David Wilson. You shouldn’t be just dropping DMC. The injury has been said to be not serious. He MAY miss this week but I’d be surprised if he misses more time than that.

    Need some trade advice… I have McCoy and forte as my starters in a two flex, two qb league with vernon as my tight end. Being offered gronk and Schaub for lacy and Manuel. What do you think? Then I need flex advice… Ty, stevie, roddy, amendola, Blackmon, fredex, Willis, and pierre Thomas for two wr and two flex spots (with lacy taking one of I keep him) thanks

    Just reading about this D-Rich situation. This week only at the flex…would you start Cunningham over Ellington, Pearce and Snelling? Not a rankings question as I’d have to drop someone for Cunningham first.

        • CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole says:

          @Sky: Good point. I assumed D-Rich was hurt when I first read it. Didn’t know it was a coaches decision.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            Yup. He was a weak RB3 call but with Pead’s maturity problems, I knew that shizz wouldn’t fly with Fisher. I’m guessing he turns more into what he really should be: change of pace back. Benny pounding up the middle and Daryl in for sweeps/bubble screens and such. Still think he’ll be useful in PPR leagues but probably of the Woodhead variety. My God the Rams o-line is horrid….

    A 1-3 team has Doug Martin on a bye and D-Rich. He’s probably desperate for a win, so I feel like I can pry Doug Martin. But I suck at trading in football…don’t think I’ve ever pulled one off. Do you see a reasonable offer here? Obviously Cunningham should be a part of it. If it’s too much of a headache, no worries! Thanks man.

      @CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole: you need more help at WR. While the Muscle Hamster would be a good get, I would be looking more to pry Cobb away from him than Martin. You don’t NEED him as much as you could use Cobb. After Marshall you have a bunch of WR4 guys and worse.

          @CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole: you can always try to get Martin then look to swap Murray or DeAngelo for a WR. You could definitely use some help there. I don’t care what you WANT…you NEED some serious help at WR!

            (link)

            @Wilsonian: I know! I always feel like I can just run some 3rd receiver or 2nd TE out there and get lucky. Your Cobb idea is good, but what would I offer, Cunningham and? I’m not trading one of my 3 starting backs and he’s not going to take one of my WR’s or a second stopgap RB. I hate fantasy football. I really, really do.

              @CramYourCatcherQuestionUpYourCramhole: That’s the problem, I don’t know who to offer. I would shoot something out there, see if it gets the conversation started. You never know how desperate someone might be.

    What’s your take on D.Wilson this week? NYG released Scott and have said that Jacobs will get short yardage and goal-line carries. That puts Wilson in on passing downs, as well, by default. They’re up against Philly. Think he may have more value than a Chris Johnson in a 0.5 PPR?

    Daryl Richardson’s not playing this week (he says), and I’ve got Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, and Emmanuel Sanders on bye. That leaves me with:

    WR: Shorts
    WR: Kendall Wright
    WR/RB: Rashad Jennings

    Problem is, I’ve got to drop someone on my bench to pick up a kicker. Do I drop Bell, Sanders, Percy Harvin, or Daryl Richardson? Or do I risk losing this week and go without a kicker? I’m 3-1 and in first place, and last week Dan Bailey got me a whopping 3 points.

      @Dingbat: D-Rich said he’s not starting. Big difference there.

      I have a funny feeling you’re going to be dropping Rashad. The news out of Raiders camp is neither Reece nor DMC are seriously injured. You need to wait until Sunday before you make this decision. Dropping a guy who says he’s not starting on Wednesday not the best way to go:

      I talked about him in this very article saying to buy him…

          @Zandy: proposing witten for cook and sjax

          Who do I add on the witten side to even it out?
          McGahee? Bolden? Ellington? Hunter? Cunningham? (His other rbs are spiller, dmc, drich)

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            McGahee is the only one that has some form of value out of that bunch that’s sellable.

            • Zandy says:
              (link)

              @Sky: thanks! That’s what I figured. So let me ask you this. My other rbs Lamar and Sproles are week 6 and week 7 byes. Assuming sjax comes back week 8. Am I going to miss McGahee too much as my bye week back? Or are those upside guys worth rolling the dice on? (Read as Ellington most likely)

              • Sky

                Sky says:
                (link)

                McGahee hasn’t looked good. Wasn’t really big on the signing. I like Ellington as an upside flier.

    @Sky…

    10 team league…no PPR…

    I have to start Chris Givens or Michael Floyd this week. Would you drop either one of them (or both maybe) for Alshon Jeffery or Nate Washington.

    Thanks.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Tough. If you think you can get him back, I’d let go of Givens at this point. Not sold on Nate, would go after Alshon.

    Hey Sky, any thoughts on Spiller or Ray Rice as buy-low opportunities? Obviously both have risks, but they don’t call em buy-low for nothing. What would you be willing to offer (if anything) for those guys?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Both are buy lows, it’s hard to answer that question. Think Lamar Miller-type. Good but not upper-level good.

    Rivers or Brady this week if Gronk doesn’t play? Rivers or Brady if Gronk does play? Appreciate the advice, can’t seem to make a decision here!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Brady might have both ‘dola and Gronk back this week. For that reason him and even if not, think he’s hitting his stride with what he’s got. Still Brady.

      • Matticus says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Appreciate it. I also liked what I saw from Brady last week. Hope he can keep it up v. a banged up CIN secondary.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I’m thinking he can/does/will. Cincy has talent but I don’t think they’re as well coached as people let on. Reminds me of the Texans: plenty of talent, but meh QBs and questionable playcalling.

  90. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Sorry dude when I meant Graham, Simpson or neither. Would you make room for Simpson on your team in a 12 team PPR???

    • Frank White says:
      (link)

      Drop the when in that sentence.. lol my bad

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’m not against it, that’s an overall team question and whether or not I need to play someone in his spot this week or not. He’s a WR4, very interchangeable from week to week.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        thanks.. I didn’t know if he was a hidden treasure or something. idk much about him

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          He’s good not great, the QBs in Minnesota are what holds back most of the players in MIN, though. Clearly your league isn’t beating down his door right now, you have time to play with that roster spot for another week and decide.

  91. Jon says:
    (link)

    Which D/ST? Bills @ CLE, Dolphins vs BAL, or Texans @ SF? I’d be dropping Jets @ ATL

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Eh, not huge on those plays for the week but Texans

      • Jon says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Any of these better? Titans vs KC, Colts vs SEA, Saints @ CHI, or Eagles @ NYG?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Titans

  92. Shidesthelimit says:

    So you dismissed my suggestion of Benny Cunningham yesterday as a legit add (especially in a return yardage league), but it looks like he’ll get a chance to start this week. Any change of opinion today?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      D-Rich isn’t the starter so he’ll get his shot. Hard to tell someone to pick up a guy with 10 carries and little offensive involvement after 4 games. I’ve picked him up in a few leagues but he’s not entering my lineup unless I’m desperate. Just a mess there because of the o-line.

  93. Ian says:

    Looking to upgrade at TE and thinking of packaging some of my RB depth to do so. I’d like to target Gronk’s owner by offering him Cook (my one and only TE) paired with one of my many RBs.

    Which of my numerous RBs would you recommend including in such a deal (12-team, non-PPR):
    AP
    Ridley
    Lamar Miller
    Gio B
    Moreno
    Le’Veon Bell
    McGahee
    Tate

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Think you should wait until after this week. Like Cook for a big game. And then you can offer an RB with less upside. At this point, Cook hasn’t performed well in 3 weeks. He’s a hard sell.

      • Ian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thanks! Assuming Cook puts up some numbers this weekend, which of those RBs would you recommend pairing with him in a deal?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          At that point, you can aim for Moreno. Hopefully McGahee has a good game, you can try him too.

  94. E C says:

    Sky,

    Would u trade Giovanni Bernard and Bernard Pierce for Alfred Morris? 0.5 PPR.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Sure, I have no problem with that.

  95. Derrick says:
    (link)

    Cruz for S. Jackson. PPR. Which side?

    Thanks!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Cruz…landslide.

  96. Abe Froman says:

    I have both Mannings for QB, RIce and Peterson and Lacy at RB in a 1QB, 2RB keeper. What do you think of my offer of Eli and Lacy for Forte? Every waiver RB I pick to spot start is an utter let down, like Daniel Thomas in week 4 and Turbin in week 3. I need a 3rd and do not expect too much of Lacy this season. Thanks!

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’m absolutely fine with that trade. Go for it.

  97. cheese says:
    (link)

    Who do you like the least for the rest of the season?

    Lacy
    Wilson
    Moreno

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Lacy

    how do you like le’veon bell for chris “i dont like fantasy football” johnson?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’ll take CJ there

  99. okgo says:

    Would you start Wilson over Dola if we hear Amendola will be limited? Been getting burned by banged up WRs this year like Fitz and V-jax. It’s PPR though so it’s hard to do.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      If ‘dola is playing I think he performs. Wilson still an anomaly. I’ll say ‘dola

  100. Hans says:

    Start two this week and drop two this week?
    Snelling vs Jets
    Chris Obgoyana vs Buf
    Bryce Brown vs nyg
    Ivory vs Atl
    Pead vs Jax

    Tough calls….Only have Martin as my other starter so whoever I keep is a potential multi week starter.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Snelling/Ogbo…why are you dropping them?

      • Hans says:
        (link)

        @Sky: We have roster limits at four RBs. So I need to cut two of tgese clowns.

  101. Matt P says:

    Trade Lacy and BIlal for Reggie Bush?

    2 RB league, I have MJD, Bell, Bernard and Pierce also at RB.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d do that
