I’m not one to talk the trash or put someone in a verbal vice-grip, but when it comes down to knocking off my fellow RCL writers I feel the urge to gloat. Just a little. Despite my Red Sox World Series hangover of 2004 proportions, your humble-but-nonetheless-bloviating Guru took down JB’s undefeated team that is cleverly named “JB Gilpin” last week and he spent most of Sunday crying to me on the phone about “bye weeks” and how his cat doesn’t “understand” him. Sorry JB, I don’t know how to help you with Mittens, but bad things happen when you assemble your roster after 14 wine coolers. The one and only “Tis Tehol” also fell to your turban clad friend last week. Of course Tehol was too busy checking the progress of his receding hairline to set his roster again, but I’ll take the win. Tehol, are you so mesmerized by your Drakkar drenched banana hammock that you can’t find a tight end to start? However, my first place 6-2 “Scotch Fueled Gurus” lost to an unknown 12-year-old “expert” somewhere in Pennsylvania Amish country whose trash smackin’ prose made Richie Incognito look like Maya Angelou. The kid told me my turban smells like my grandma’s…well, you know, then he beat me 20 points. I feel so bullied. *one lonely tear drops* However, the jammer crammers have been coming through for us this year. Last weeks jams of Terrelle Pryor and Tim Wright were solid plug ‘n’ plays. Let’s forget I suggested jamming on the New Orleans defense, okay? Overall, we have hit on about 70% of our jammer/crammers in any given week. I’m not ready to surrender my turban just yet, my Razzballer’s. And I certainly won’t hand it over to a prepubescent, Fall Out Boy loving kid that sleeps in his Ben Roethlisberger footie pajamas while his mommy rubs his heiny and tells him how special it is. By the way, kid, my dad can beat up your dad. It’s time to jam it or cram it.

 

Jam or Cram: Jake Locker, QB, Tennessee Titans

Availability: 62% Yahoo, 76% ESPN

Stat Me Up: 12.40 Fantasy points. Locker was 13-of-22 for 185 yards, 2 INTs and a rushing touchdown Sunday.

$$$ Value: $6. With injuries and byes piling up, I’m spending like a rich weird white dude that wants to look like Justin Bieber.

The Gist: Ok, ok, Nick Foles, ok. Grab Foles if you want, but he gets the Packers this week. Remember what the Cowboys did to Foles? He doesn’t. I expect more of that. If Foles throws seven touchdowns this week, I’ll deep fry my turban and eat it with a side of ranch dressing. That’s why I’m picking up Locker. He had a tough time with the Rams, but it was his first game since Week 1 in which he didn’t throw a TD. Locker had multiple touchdowns in four straight games before Sunday. This week he gets the Jaguars. Locker’s going to throw eight touchdowns against these guys. If not, I’ll roll my turban in Panko bread crumbs and…never mind.

The X-File: Before going down with a rib injury, Locker had a QB efficiency rating of 99.0 and six touchdowns in four games with no interceptions.

Jam it or Cram it: While the waiver wire blows up and people sell their kidneys for Nick Foles, grab some shares of Jake Locker. Despite missing two weeks, Locker has nearly as many points as Joe Flacco, Eli Manning and Ryan Tannehill. Locker also gets the Raiders, Cardinals and the Jaguars twice over the next seven weeks. Have we talked about how bad the Jaguars are? JAM

 

Jam or Cram: Andre Brown, RB, New York Giants

Availability: 64% Yahoo, 80% ESPN

Stat Me Up: Brown has not played yet this season after breaking his leg for the third time in August. How was your summer?

$$$ Value: $12. Invest wisely in running backs that get touches. Remember when we jammed on Andre Ellington and Mike James? Good times.

The Gist: Unless Brown trips over JB’s kitty and breaks his leg again, Brown will be good to go in Week 10. With the disappointing David Wilson being fitted for a halo-vest and Peyton Hillis and Brandon Jacobs not worth a spot a on a 12-year-old kid from Pennsylvania’s roster, Brown will be getting work. He may not go off this week, but he will.

The X-File: Last season, Brown averaged 5.27 YPC and rushed for eight touchdowns in 10 games.

Jam it or Cram it: This is the kind of late season pickup that can lead you to the Shiva. With Arian Foster hurting, Ray Rice drooling and BenJarvus Green-Ellis back to law practicing, Brown gets a Raiders defense that is forgiving. Oakland has given up the 9th most points to Fantasy backs this season. Encase his leg in bubble wrap then JAM

 

Jam or Cram: Aaron Dobson, WR, New England Patriots

Availability: 54% Yahoo, 95% ESPN

Stat Me Up: 25 Fantasy points. Dobson hauled in five passes for 130 yards with two touchdowns Sunday.

$$$ Value: $10. Wide receivers are a roll of the dice. Gamble on Dobson. C’mon boxcars!

The Gist: With Kenbrell Thompkins off to the bench and Danny Amendola made of glass, the rookie Dobson is getting looks, catching passes and gaining trust. Dobson played in over 90% of the Patriots offensive snaps on Sunday and may have finally lost his “Dropson” nickname.

The X-File: The Patriots are on a bye this week which makes Dobson stashalicious©. That’s copyrighted so don’t get any ideas, Pianowski!

Jam it or Cram it: Dobson has averaged over 12 Fantasy points in his last four games. Tom Brady likes him so much he took down his Wes Welker in the shower screensaver and gave the rookie an awkward hi-five. Even Bill Belichick was excited by Dobson’s 80-yard TD. JAM

 

Jam or Cram: Zach Miller, TE, Seattle Seahawks

Availability: 84% Yahoo, 85% ESPN

Stat Me Up: 4.90 Fantasy points. Miller caught three passes for 49 yards Sunday.

$$$ Value: $1. If you find a crumpled up dollar in your pants that’s been through the wash it’s a bonus. Just don’t tell your friends you spent it on a 6’5″ tight end. They’ll start to wonder about you. Actually, they already wonder.

The Gist: Miller has been primarily a blocking tight end this season and has only reached double-digit Fantasy points twice. Clearly, the ‘Hawks are a run Marshawn Lynch first, then run Marshawn Lynch second kind of team. Miller is not Marshawn Lynch. He’s the tight end. This blurb is about tight ends. That is all.

The X-File: Miller is just three years removed from a 680 yard, five touchdown season.

Jam it or Cram it: My luck with picking up tight ends has been improving. Last week I suggested Tim Wright and he put up 12 points. The week before we jammed Jordan Reed and he’s now a Fantasy stud. This week I give you Zach Miller. CRAM away.

 

Jam or Cram: Washington Redskins, Defense/Special teams

Availability: 95% Yahoo, 97% ESPN

Stat Me Up: 6 Fantasy points. The Redskins recorded one sack and two interceptions against the Chargers on Sunday.

$$$ Value: $1. Say this in your best Martini voice from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest: I bet a buck.

The Gist:  The Redskins have been averaging over nine Fantasy points in their last six games. This week they play a Minnesota Vikings team that has been giving up over 10 points to team defenses the last four weeks.

The X-File: Washington has 12 consecutive regular season games with at least one turnover. That matches the team’s longest streak in 13 years.

Jam it or Cram it: The Washington defense enters this game having scored a league-leading five touchdowns in eight games. They face Christian Ponder Thursday night. Let’s make that six defensive touchdowns right now. We are JAM happy this week.

 

*Week 10 Bonus Tracks*

Case Keenum, QB, Houston Texans: Keenum put up over 28 Fantasy points last week, but is clearly infatuated with Andre Johnson. I’d take him in a 2QB League or a league where only Andre Johnson stats count. Patrick Peterson will be on Andre this week. CRAM

Jonathan Stewart, RB, Carolina Panthers: Carolina’s running corps is now a three-headed Panther. Every seen a three-headed panther? Me either, but I’ve met my share of gray ones. CRAM

Riley Cooper, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: Racist Riley put up 33 Fantasy points on Sunday. Grab Cooper now. Just don’t tell this guy. JAM

Anthony Fasano, TE, Kansas City Chiefs: During Sunday’s game Dan Dierdorf compared Fasano to Jimmy Graham. Apparently Dierdorf  is the new poster boy for the dangers of concussions in the NFL. Can someone get Dan a drool cup? CRAM

Pittsburgh Steelers Defense/Special Teams: Taking the Steelers D is a tough sell, especially after giving up a franchise record 55 points to the Patriots. Jeff Tuel is not Tom Brady. *Insert your own “Tuel time” joke here*JAM

    Who has the better dynasty outlook, Glennon or Foles? Glennon looks like the real deal, but Kelly’s offense is hard to pass up and maybe Foles settles in and produces on a a weekly basis.

      A TE I see with potential is Tim Wright of the Bucs. 2 postion eligiblity, gets a Dolphins team that has given up the third most points to tight ends this year, and is coming off three straight games of over 9 points. Not sexy, but worth a grab.

    Need some Gurrific help going against first place team this week. Best defense stream for week 10 out of these? Indy vs Stl, Giants vs Raiders, Arizona vs Houston, or maybe even Pittsburgh vs Buffalo (don’t want to use Washington defense because I have AP so I don’t really want them to face each other on my team and stuff I want AP to just demolish them). And If there’s any other sleeper D you have I’ll gladly pick them up too lol

    Thanks

    • The Guru

      Leaning Arizona here. They are at home, get an inexperienced QB that’s in love with Andre Johnson who will have Peterson on him all day and Arian Foster/Ben Tate are both hurting and may not play. The Cards D is averaging over 10 points the last 5 games.

      • Dave says:
        (link)

        @The Guru: Thanks, I was torn between them and Indy (against Clementine) because I was concerned about Keenum playing well. But I’ll agree and take Arizona.

        Also, should I be concerned as a Lacy owner about the Aaron Rodgers injury? Feel like he’s gonna face a lot more stacked boxes and have a tough time doing as well as he has been.

        • The Guru

          The Guru says:
          (link)

          I wouldn’t be too concerned about Lacy. He’s running real well, gets a nothing Philly D this week and I’d rank him a top 10 RB with or without Rodgers.

    Any of the available talent (R. Jennings, A. Brown, A. Dobson) worth a #1 claim? Rbs on the team are R. Rice, R. Bush, Z. Stacy, A. Ellington, L. Miller and Wrs are A. Green, S. Johnson and M. Brown. Putting that all on paper I obviously need to swing a WR for one of those RB’s.

    • The Guru

    I have the number 2 waiver but this week is a must win for playoff hopes. I have Cam but I am worried about the matchup. My TE was Rudolph so I need some help.

    Or Heath Miller? Thanks!

    Hi Guru,
    In a win-now mode as I’m on the cusp of playoffs (and only in as of today due to total pts). So I am thinking that my Harvin stash may not work out and that I’ll need to drop him (assuming he doesn’t play this week) to avoid a zero:
    I have Gordon (bye)/Amendola (bye)/Nicks/Hopkins/Harvin and need 3 WRs to go this week in PPR.
    1. Who, if any, of Cooper/MBrown/ReubenR/Hartline are you willing to drop Harvin for before we know he is definitely out week 10?
    2. Would you stick with Hopkins or try to get a claim two from this group for week 10 plays?

    Thanks for your advice.

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:

      I’d grab Hartline and Cooper. Drop Hopkins. Drop Harvin as you need a player if you’re in desperation mode.

    Hi, hoping to get some feedback please.
    12 team
    2 QB league

    Should I trade Locker/Moreno for Cam Newton?

    Locker has a really favorable schedule rest of season. (Jac twice, Colts, Texans, Denver and Oak in there)

    My other RB’s are Forte, Ivory, DeAngelo, Vereen and just traded Tannehill for T-Rich (shows how bad he is)

    You can keep 2 players in this league and Cam is eligible to be kept in the 10th round next year. I wouldn’t have kept Locker.

    Thanks.

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:
      (link)

      I tend to play for this year. I wouldn’t make the deal unless I am out of it.

      • fitz says:
        (link)

        @The Guru: I was thinking of this year. I don’t know that TB12/Locker or Pyror is good enough to win.
        You don’t see Cam as having significant value over Locker?
        Or do you think Moreno is too valuable?

        Once Vereen comes back next week I’ll have a bit of a log jam at RB and was planning to start Forte/Vereen at RB1/RB2 and then T-Rich or Ivory at Flex.

        Sure, having Forte/Moreno then Vereen at Flex would be better but think Cam is a vast improvement over Locker or Pryor and while not being the reason for the trade I like being able to keep him next year as well.

        • The Guru

          The Guru says:
          (link)

          That Forte/Moreno combo is too strong to break up. Vereen will be up and down in that offense. If Cam outscores Locker by more than 15 points ROS I’ll eat my turban.

          • fitz says:
            (link)

            @The Guru: Gotcha, thank you for the advice. Going to cancel trade, haha.

              The Guru says:
              (link)

              No prob, Fitz. The differential in points averaged over a season between a top 5 QB and a To 15 QB is usually only 3 points a week. The difference between a top back like Moreno and a lower tier back is over 8.

    Should I use the number 1 waiver on Rashad Jennings? or maybe Riley Cooper? or hold?

    Need Guru advise >
    In a 12-team PPR league. We start 2 RBs and can carry max 4 RBs. We start 1 WR and 2 WR/TE flexes (no TE required).

    RBs – I have Ray Rice (disappointment) and Darren Sproles (disappointment + concussion) and Steven Jackson (better than last week) and Andre Ellington.
    — Drop Sproles or anyone for Joique Bell, Ben Tate, Rashad Jennings, Andre Brown (which order)?
    Wk 10 – who to start? – leaning to Jackson and Ellington

    WRs – I have Antonio Brown, Jarrett Boykin, Michael Floyd, Josh Gordon(bye), and J Cameron (bye), J Thomas, and J Reed.
    Would you drop Boykin (no value without Rodgers) and Cameron (bye plus no love from Jason Campbell) to get Dobson, Cooper or Emmanuel Sanders?
    Who to start? Leaning to A Brown, M Floyd and JReed.

    QB – I have Romo. Should I target Foles, Palmer, Glennon as a backup for Week 11 (order)?

    Thanks for the gurulicious advice.

    • RalphW says:
      (link)

      @Thak DaK: I would drop Sproles for Brown, Jennings or Tate.
      I’d drop Boykin (not think theres much value left) for Dobson, Sanders or Riley and hold on to Cameron .
      If you have a roster spot for Foles, pick him up. if healthy he should start the rest of the year

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:
      (link)

      Sproles has been hurting me too. I could see dropping him for Jennings depending on your record.

      I’m not ready to quit on Rice. I’d probably start Rice and Jackson.

      Dobson on a bye. I’d drop Boykin for E-Man. Riley is a roll of the dice really. But Cam is doing you no good. So that drop does make sense with Foles playing well.

      Reed and Thomas pretty even. Either should be good to go. I’d start them both with Brown if I read all this right.

      Looking ahead to week 11, Foles looks like the play depending on how things go this week.

      Good luck, hope this all helped.

        @The Guru: Thanks Guru and Ralph – that helps me confirm my waiver priorities.

        Btw, I’m 5-4. 6th seed – holding the final playoff spot.

        I’m projected for 97 points and my opponent with 127 with his kicker and Def on bye. Likely a 5-5 mark, but want to give it the best shot.

      However, I did say he may not be good to go this week, but I like him for the home stretch for anyone with roster flexibility.

    With Brady on a bye, I have Locker as a backup should I be concerned that they will run quite a bit limiting his upside? Thought about adding Eli or Roethlisberger to spot start.

      Roll out Locker. The matchup is too good to pass up as Jax gives up the most points to QBs in the league.

    Hey guru, I need a defense- I’m dropping Saints D, so far in my waiver order I have it set up as follows-
    Titans D, Dolphins D, Cardinals D and Texans D. Do you agree with that order? I’m aiming for Titans because I love the matchup but after that I’m torn between which ones, the dolphins D did impress me on thurs & I can see some turnovers vs glennon , although the cardinals D not a bad option either.

    I also just want to say I had the best buy-low addition last week; last week a league mate dropped tom Brady (he’s been trying to trade me brady in previous weeks but I didn’t respond plus he said if I don’t do the deal he’ll drop Brady- lol don’t try to trade me brady if you are going to drop him) sure enough on the waiver last wed Brady was there, Friday came & he cleared waivers – I dropped Brandon bolden & added Brady & he went off; but what’s funny if that owner kept Brady he would’ve won- the QB he added instead was Alex smith! Lol

      Nice pick up on Brady. Silly panicy owners. Nice one.

      Titans D is the one to snag for sure. The I’d go ARI, MIA, HOU.

    Ugh. I have Rodgers for my QB (ugh) and Charles, Sproles, and Ellington for my RBs (bye,Ugh, and ?). I’m sitting #2 in waiver order and thinking Foles (my back up QB was Vick) and Jennings. Which should I try to get first and who can I target in case I miss the second guy?

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:

      Grab Foles for sure then Jennings. Good luck.

    Was offered a trade in my non ppr league Decker for TY Hilton lots of mouths to feed in Denver though. I need to get this right it so I need your help making the right choice here. Thanks again.

    • The Guru

      Pretty much the same guy ROS. I personally prefer Hilton going forward.

    Hi there guru, keep or drop colts D? If I drop colts d, these defenses are available; Cards, dolphins, panthers, and texans. Also, this is looking good for me, Friday as soon as I heard Blackmon is done I dropped Kyle Rudolph to add mike brown– Rudy is now missing time, my other TE is Fleener so I think I’m fine at TE. Only position player move i may make would be to drop Donald brown, what do you think of that? My other RB’s are alf Morris, Zac Stacy, Steven Jackson, le’veon bell, and Roy helu.

    I’m either looking into adding another RB or WR for depth– my receivers are Vincent Jackson, Antonio brown, Eric decker, Alshon Jeffery , Terrence Williams , and now mike brown.

    But the thing is id need a backup QB for romo because his bye is approaching – would you advise to add any of the following RB’s or WR’s or one of the qb’s I have listed

    RB/WR players avIlable: Rashad Jennings, Shonn Greene, Brian Hartline, James Starks, Montee Ball, or Meachem.

    QBs available for week 11, with their matchups:

    Cutler vs Ravens

    Tannehill vs Chargers

    Eli vs GB

    Carson Palmer vs Jacksonville

    Glennon vs ATL

    Thanks great posts! You guys helped me win my fantasy baseball league this year!

    • The Guru

      I’d drop Helu for Jennings. WR look pretty good, but I prefer Hartline over Brown. Palmer in week 11.

      • Bobby says:
        (link)

        @The Guru: thanks for the response guru,, when you say hartline over brown did you refer to mike brown or Donald brown? Also did you like the colts d? Other options are texans , panthers & bucs the dolphins & cards were just picked up

        • The Guru

          The Guru says:
          (link)

          Yeah, Colts D looks good this week. I was thinking better than any Brown.

          • Bobby says:

            @The Guru: thanks- would you look to add Shonn Greene by dropping don brown?

    hey guru, i know sky has been weary for jimmy’s lingering foot injury put at 4-5 im trying to liquidate the bench fodder and maximize upside as my byes are mostly over. ive been offered jimmy graham for cecil shorts, jordan reed and rashad jennings (hes a dmc owner whos thin at rb) like the deal? or overpaying too much.
    qb – rivers
    wr – calvin
    wr – dez
    rb – forte
    rb – bell
    te – reed
    flex – andre johnson
    bench – foles, rashad jennings, shorts, brady, mike brown

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:

      And if Graham’s foot gives out? Got to take some chances to win. Personally, I’d do it. But your team looks pretty good without him.

    MJD and Wallace enough for B. Marshall?

  25. Robert says:

    Oh yah: the other team has nothing going for it except Marshall. Knowshon for Marshall?

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:

      MJD and Wallace for Marshall would be ideal. Without seeing your roster, record or whether you’re in a standard or ppr league, I’d keep Moreno.

      • Robert says:
        (link)

        @The Guru: Ok. 6-3, standard. I have MJD and Wallace both on bench because I have better options. I will give it a shot.

    I need solid 9-10pts

          I’d want Gostkowski ROS, but he’s on a bye this week.

          @Kzing: you’d be holding 2 kickers that way since gostko is on bye.

    dropping crosby, i’m guessing due to higher per game average of pts we’d want vinateri over novak, by a little?

    Guru- I’ve had a disappointing season in a 12team ppr though I am 4-5 – I am tied for division lead (that should tell you something) and really still in playoff hunt. Need help navigating my lineup.
    Qb- locker/cam — have to start one. Locker has great match ups coming up
    Rb – woodhead, Ellington, trich, sjax, and le’veon bell- start two with possibility of one at flex. I’ve been running woodhead and Ellington
    Wr-decker, Hilton,s. Johnson (buf)– start two with possibility of 1flex been starting all three
    Flex- Johnson (as mentioned above) – could put Rb here too
    Te- wright
    D- wash/car– start one.. Been playing car but I like wash matchup
    K — bailey– no worries here

    Looking at adding brown. Yes he’s on bye, but who to drop. Trich has underplayed, sjax not impressed yet, but seems to be making progress. Do I need Wash D? Do I need Locker and Cam? Which has a better upside for remainder of season?

    Thanks Guru– hoping to make a late season push

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:
      (link)

      Thanks for writing in. Here’s how I see it. Not sue if you are standard or PPR.

      Still ranking Cam higher this week.

      Bell and Woody.

      Hilton, Decker

      T-Rich flex

      Carolina.

      You don’t need Locker or the Wash D.

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Trade Jamaal Charles for Rice, Witten and Andre Johnson. Who wins?!?!? I need help at WR and TE but I am hesitant about giving up the best RB in the league. What do you think?

    THANK YOU!!!

    • The Guru

      The Guru says:
      (link)

      If only Rice could return to form. What’s your record? Is it a ppr league? Who’s your other RBs? TE? WRs? I got questions.

      • Toby says:
        (link)

        @The Guru: I have Murray, Mendenhall and Tate as my other RBs. My TE right now is Gresham (after losing Finley) and my WRs are Jeffrey, Shorts, Tate, Moore, Bowe and Jones. I also have Manning at QB.

        My team is currently 4-5 (tied for 6th place) in a standard 12-team redraft league. I have a tough matchup (without Charles) this week and then I play my next 3 games against the lowest ranked teams. I could use a TE1 and another WR1 but I am really hesitant giving up Charles as he and Manning have basically carried my team this season. If Charles continues at his current pace for the remainder of the season I would be pissed if I traded him but he seems like a great sell-high candidate.

        BTW, the other guy has Forte, Mike James, Jennings, Harvin and Hartline in addition to the guys he’s offering.

        Thanks so much for your insight. Really appreciate the help!

        P.S. If I decide to keep the guys i have, who would you recommend rolling with this weekend at WR and RB? I’m think Murray/Mendenhall and Jeffrey/Shorts/Tate.

        • The Guru

          The Guru says:
          (link)

          I’d hold. Charles is the best you have. Rice is too bad right now. Johnson will be keyed on going forward and Witten has been somewhat inconsistent.

          As far as your starters this week, looks like you have it set. Is Rahad Jennings available? He’s be better than Mendenall.

          • Toby says:
