It was a nice return to Philly for the Walrus, Andy Reid, as his Chiefs took down his former team.  The team that has been a talk of the NFL despite starting 1-1 with a defense made of wet paper with holes big enough to make Jenna Jamison blush has overshadowed Reid’s new team.  You know, the one that has flown under the radar to a 2-0, now 3-0 start.  This isn’t fantasy relevant, says the casual reader.  Well, CR, I have news for you.  Entering the 4Q, Jamaal Charles had 10 carries for about 26 yards.  He ended the night with 20 carries for 92 on the ground and a touchdown.  You getting the fantasy relevance yet?  With how quickly the Eagles offense could strike, Reid went to the drain the clock well down the stretch, leading to what was a decent but boring fantasy night and turned it into fantasy gold as Charles finished with 27 total touches – 7 for receptions – for a total of 172 yards and a score.  He could’ve another one in the 4th but real football got in the way of our fake football dreams and dashed it.  Moving forward, Jamaal’s still the man in KC and still looks to be a top 3 back in the making.  Given Smith’s game managing ways, Charles should see plenty of check downs and yardage the rest of the way.  To put it in Beatles terms, ‘Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come. Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody tuesday’.  Hrm, well I give up.  There’s zero ways to make a drug-induced song by the Beatles relevant to tonight’s game other then the title.  Goo-Goo-G’Joob!  In other 2013 Fantasy Football news from week 3…

Dwayne Bowe – One catch for four yards.  Pretty sure Alex Smith has a vision problem.  I’m guessing near-sighted.  Can only see 5 yards down the field at the time.  Meanwhile, anyone who thought Alex Smith was a viable fantasy QB this year is probably near-sighted.

DeSean Jackson – Wasn’t the night any expected as he tied three teammates for target supremacy on the night with 7 and finished with 3/62.  Also ran out of bounds when he didn’t have to on a 40 yard bomb to avoid contact.  Must’ve sat in on one of Vick’s coaching sessions about that.  Wish Vick would…

Donnie Avery – Finished the night with 7/141 on 7 targets.  You may think this is a beautiful WR floating out in the free agent oasis but it’s simply a mirage.  Or better yet, it’s Chloe Sevigny in ‘Hit & Miss’.  Don’t think anyone’s ever found the perfect female to play a shemale like the casting director did there.  Would seriously think she was a body builder based on the face if it weren’t for the body she’s rocking…nonetheless!  Game of circumstances.  Philly can’t guard the under route…ok, they can’t guard anything but Smith was a checkdown master tonight and Avery was the benefactor along with Charles.  Leave him be unless it’s a really deep league where you can start Chloe…I mean Avery.

Kansas City D/ST – Pick them up.  Seriously, go now.  I know it’s TNF but they’ve now only had 32 points against on the year and their plus/minus as a team on the year is 12.  Guess how many TOs they have?  It’s zero.  You do the math.  You don’t even have to carry any numbers over.

Jason Avant – Scored a touchdown while pulling in 7 catches for 87 yards.  Anyone who started him in standard-sized leagues tonight is an idiot Avant.

Michael Vick – Didn’t really look bad on the night.  Just a bad combo of good defense and playing on a Thursday Night.  Fantasy owners are probably happy with the production but that’s because we don’t count QBRat.

Justin Houston – Had 3.5 sacks.  I’ve heard that that is good for IDP.  But I don’t know anything about IDP.  You should ask our resident IDP expert Kevin Kumpf – @kevkumpf on twitter – to see if that’s good.  You should also ask how some whack-ass systems engineer has his name.  Seriously, no one cares about your logistics!  Get off twitter!

LeSean McCoy – Man, I was thinking that Chip’s offense would be a gamble to bank on for fantasy purposes this year – the main reason I had him as low as top 12 RB for fantasy purposes this off-season – but even after moving him up to top 5, I didn’t see this coming.  Despite only having 6 receptions on the year, McCoy has been the prize of most fantasy drafts with where he’s gone.  Yes, even if you took him top 5, you’ve gotten a value.  That’s tough to do.  After another huge game on the ground – 158 rushing on 20 touches along with a touchdown – it’s clear that Shady is shining bright.  Dude even returned from an ankle sprain in the second half.  He’s doing it all for your love, Fantasy owners!

Alex Smith – When I talked about why Kaep would keep the job over Smith last year with you readers, I said ‘Kaep helps San Fran win; Smith just helps them not lose’.  After tonight, I think we can see what that means.  Smith went to the Jason Campbell School For Checkdowns.  He graduated with honors but may go back to pursue his PHD in it once this year’s over.  After that hiatus, he’ll apply as a professor for the Jaguars.

Sean McGrath – Nabbed 31 yards on 4 receptions.  Also has more pubes on his chin then you’ve seen on a woman in a porno in over 30 years.  For the kids of the internet age, yes, women grow hair down there too.  Don’t believe me?  Search ‘amateur’ on your XXX site of choice and select the grainy looking vid with bad lighting.  If my wife’s reading this, please realize any info I have on this subject was strictly done out of research for my readers.  And that I’ve cleared all browser history so you don’t have to find out how many grueling hours I put in to find out.  Also part deux, I promise none of our vids are up there *crosses fingers behind back*.

    Sky,
    10 team keeper league and I just got offered a new deal that included Dez Bryant, Spiller, TY Hilton and Martellus Bennett for my T Rich. Pretty damn tempted to accept but wanted to get your take along with others first. What do you guys think?

    • Jordan73 says:
      (link)

      @Dan Johnson: Don’t know what your keeper cost is, but I’d be all over that deal. You’re getting a WR1, two guys that look like a RB2 and WR2 at worst (full potential), and a serviceable TE.

    • btd says:
      (link)

      @Dan Johnson: Looks good at first glance. Who would you be dropping? What’s the rest of your team look like?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      All 4 of those guys for just T-Rich? That’s a lot. There’s no question you take that unless I’m missing something here.

      • Dan Johnson says:
        (link)

        @Sky: yeah I couldn’t believe it this guy just really wants T Rich however I have another offer that involves J Charles and AJ Green along another guy yet to be determined. Do you like Charles or spiller more in terms of fantasy keeper as well as Green or Dez?

        My drops would be between B Brown A Ellington C Clay K Britt R Broyles

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          I like Green/Dez almost equally. Charles vs Spiller, I’d want Charles but it’s close. Why is Dez getting brought up, exactly?

          C Clay/Britt/Broyles are droppable.

          • Dan Johnson says:
            (link)

            @Sky: He offered Dez after I turned down his last offer, this guy is so desperate to get T Rich that he’s willing to overpay. I feel like I need to accept before he comes to his senses but I’m trying to get Charles instead of Spiller in the deal haha. Do you view Spiller as a RB1 for the next couple years or is he a RB2?

            • Sky

              Sky says:
              (link)

              I ranked him as an RB1 this year and he’s still young. Don’t see why that would change in the next 2 years. Don’t get greedy, you’re getting a king’s ransom for TRich. Take it.

    wait wait wait… ‘Michael Vick didn’t really look bad on the night?’ Like, for fantasy, right?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      He had about 5-6 passes batted down, and his pick-6 was another tipped ball. The stats didn’t really show that. A few of those don’t get tipped and we’re not talking about as bad of a night as it looked. He started off slow. Just saying even without the fantasy stats a lot went wrong that made his night look worse in the box score than it actually was.

      • donut says:
        (link)

        @Sky: @Sky: I dunno man. It’s not like tipped/batted passes are outside the QB’s control. Not throwing in lanes and letting defenders get hands on the ball is on the QB. I thought Vick looked terrible.

        The plus side is that as bad as he played, he still gave a decent fantasy line. Not good, but it’s not going to sink you. If this is Vick’s downside and last week is his upside that’s a pretty useful fantasy QB.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          It’s Thursday Night Football. Lot of good QBs find a way to look bad on those nights. I understand some of it is within the control of the QB but there’s also a bit of a luck factor with tipped passes when you start talking about that volume. Like you said, though, for fantasy purposes if this is a bad night, his owner can survive.

    Hey Sky,

    Having trouble with a Trich decision. Which three would you play: DeAngelo Williams, T Rich, Tavon, and TY Hilton. I was thinking the two receivers and Williams, but now I am hearing that TRich will get alot of snaps. Need some advice!
    Thanks

    I googled “Mrs. Sky + Amateur Porn + Football Fetish” but I couldn’t find your home movies…

    Pierre Thomas was dropped. Is he an add over Ellington, Snelling, Bryce Brown? I’ve avoided the Saints RB shituation up to now and I’m not sure I want anything to do with it.

    • btd says:
      (link)

      @Buddah Lovaz: Yes. Ingram has been a mess this year. PT will get more snaps. I’d take PT over the Duke and Brown. Maybe not Snelling, but maybe so…

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ha!

      I wouldn’t want to add him. Just don’t trust the NOLA running attack.

    • I like turtles says:
      (link)

      @Buddah Lovaz:

      PT will be a decent bye-week fill in if you’re desperate. Ingram will start losing snaps as he’s been ineffective and the second he steps on the field they stack the box b/c he has no passing game involvement.

  5. Allan says:

    Sky,
    I’m one of those lucky guys who have t. Richardson, a. bradshaw, and e. lacy as my running backs. So basically I’m screwed til lacy returns in two weeks. Basically I need RB help. I also have kaepernick and bradford as qb’s. What kind of RB do you think I could get for bradford in a trade? I play in an espn standard league with 16 teams. Somebody has to be hurting for QB help. Thanks.

    • btd says:
      (link)

      @Allan: Agreed. Somebody has to be hurting. Find out who it is. You should be able to get an RB2/3 type depending on desperation and team. Mathews? Ridley? D. Rich? Wilson?

      • btd says:
        (link)

        @btd: Assuming trading Bradford… Trade Kaep could probably get you more based on name alone.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Hard to say, really. Depends who’s hurting and what they have to give you. 16 team, low end RB2 is probably all you’ll get unless the other owner is desperate and loaded at the position. You need to go shopping and look at what your league has to offer.

    After snagging MJD off waivers (8 owners slept or passed on him!?!?), I have this RB crew (PPR):
    Forte/Foster/MJD/Pierce
    Ivory cleared waivers completely, would you take him instead of Pierce? I’m tempted to hold Pierce to see how bad it is for Rice first, but am looking for a second or third opinion on it. I have a 4RB limit, so I can’t keep em all.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You need to see how this weekend shapes up for Rice before you can make a decision. Ivory ROS over Pierce if Rice comes back healthy makes a lot of sense but there’s no reason to start Ivory until Jets figure out what they have.

  7. Grant says:

    Stupid Bowe, I had a bad feeling before that start, shoudl have sat him for anyone else. Never trusting him again. Trade bait?

    RB/WR situation

    RB- TRich, Sproles, Wilson, Pierce, McGahee
    WR- Dez, Amendola, Edelman, Givens, Tate, Blackmon, Harvin

    I picked up McGahee and dropped KC D(D’OH)……..now I need to drop someone off of my roster to pick up a defense….who do you suggest? My lean is Tate, Harvin, Blackmon, or McGahee.

    Judging by the tweets, your colleague at Razzball, Tehol Benedict, didn’t seem to like Reid’s playcalling, Smith, Bowe, OR Charles’s chances this season given the pokey nature of the system which I thought was interesting because being a Charles owner, I saw it your way as all positives for him. The thing that still has me a little nervous about him though is his durability. He came out for a few plays in the second half twice if I’m not mistaken after some tough runs up the gut so if that continues, could he lose touches to the bigger Davis?

    And yes, I was annoyed by the way the game ended. If Reid was really going to try and score on 4th and goal, why pick the obvious “right into the pile” play to call? Could’ve used that 2nd TD.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      My dear, sweet, beloved Tehol has a funny way of thinking. If he has JC in our writers league, I’ll check in and see if he puts his money where his mouth is. He had 27 touches on the night; there are a lot of backs that would be tired on a few plays in those situations. Charles will always be an injury risk but that’s the nature of the beast with RBs in general. It’s hard to worry about that for just him.

      Yeah, have him in 2 leagues and in each I’m hobbled by at least one of White/’dola/Gronk/SJax so I’m with you.

    Sky, I have been considering benching my Bengals D this Sunday versus the Packers aerial attack. Waiver D not an option. You are real high on them this week in your rankings and I’m now leaning toward a start.

    Just curious what the thinking is for making them a top-5 play this week?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Good defenses can still get to GB. SF defense isn’t what it used to be – not a top 5 anymore, looks more like a top 15 – and the Redskins are just a gaping hole for a DEF right now. Think like TNF proved, a good defense can cause enough havoc for a good offense to be worth starting. TB held NO to, what, 16 points? Good defense can win out.

      Bush if he’s healthy. Pay attention to the injury reports.

  12. Zandy says:
    (link)

    I was doing some thinking, is McGahee a sell high before he sees a snap? Thinking chances are he disappoints. Would you try to move him for a time share back like an Ivory or Moreno? Where do you think McGahee sits Ros?

    Separately is roddy white a buy low or are you concerned about the ankle?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      If you could get Moreno or Ivory, I’d take that. Browns are gonna have it rough the rest of the way. Even if Willis is the bell-cow there, he’s a flex play at best most weeks.

      I’m concerned since it’s a high ankle. That buy low is gonna have to be one you sit on him for a while.

    I’m going WR shopping with my surplus TEs. We have WR, WR, TE, RB/WR, and WR/TE spots. My WRs are Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, and Cecil Shorts, and my TEs are Graham, Cook, and Cameron.

    Here are potential targets:
    Team 1: Julio Jones, Reggie Wayne, Eric Decker, T.Y. Hilton
    Team 2: Pierre Garcon, Eddie Royal, Dwayne Bowe, Golden Tate

    I figure my options are either:
    (1) offer Cameron or Cook for Hilton/Royal/Bowe/Tate (and maybe Decker as a lowball offer),
    (2) offer Cameron + WR for Jones/Garcon/Wayne/Decker

    Which option do you think is a better move for me? Doing a 2-for-1 deal would clear up a roster spot on my bench, which is currently clogged by Harvin and Le’Veon Bell, but there aren’t any obvious upside stashes on the wire at present.

          @Sky: if I could get him to take Shorts does that change anything? Do you like Johnson as much as VJax going forward?

            @The Fridge: If he takes Cecil, sure; be surprised if he bit though. I like Stevie’s consistency. Have VJax as a high end WR2 and Stevie as a mid-range WR2. It’s a fair trade, just think it might be an overbuy when it’s all said and done.

    Dynasty question. I’m a top contender this year, but I was offered Emmanuel Sanders in Space and Kenny Stills from Oklahoma for Eric Decker of the Mountain Deckers.

    Decker is the best player and young, but he’s not that much better than Sanders, right? What value do you think Stills has going forward this season and after?

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      That’s more of a team evaluation. Don’t trust Pittsburgh at all over the next few years; o-line has deteriorated to nearly nothing at this point. Just don’t see the upside there. Kenny Stills is Devery Henderson in that offense until proven otherwise. Rather have Decker

    Too early to start planing for bye weeks?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Don’t know what that means. Very loaded question.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Sky: so if my three main wrs are Calvin Stevie Johnson and Steve smith then the three bye weeks are weeks 4 9 and 2. My next wr is Hilton who gets the jags, texans and cards in those weeks. So Hilton fits fine for those spot starts

        My starting rbs are Sproles and Lamar with byes in weeks 6 and 7. McGahee plays the lions and packers.

        So if no injuries occur (fingers crossed) it looks like this group of players fits well and I shouldn’t make a move that worsens my setup. For example trading either Stevie for bolden puts me in week 9 without Calvin and without Boldin – so I shouldn’t make that move

        Is that the way to think about it or too early and I should think about best players instead!

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          That’s a lot of overthinking. Too much happens between now and your bye weeks to make trades and moved based on them in week 3. You just picked up McGahee because he became the starter for the Browns out of nowhere. That should tell you something about trying to play 6 weeks ahead.

        @Sky: I think ball will get his reps at some point for two reasons
        1) Moreno has never had a healthy year outside his rookie
        20 I think the Broncos will work him in during blowouts and could lead to some touches later in the year as he learns the pro game

        • Sky

          Sky says:

          He’ll get reps, sure. Might take a while before he gets enough to warrant interest, though. Just depends on if you can wait. Plus in reality, everyone talks like he’s this amazing player. He’s just ok and not a huge enough step up over Moreno that the Broncos should be that concerned with him.

    I desperately need a bench QB in my 2QB league… im stacked at WR with Cobb,Nelson,Nicks,Steve Smith, Josh Gordon, Dwayne Bowe and Michael FLoyd… Im pretty fed up with Bowe and see no reason why he will do anything this year with Smith as his QB. I got offered Josh Freeman for him… decent enough QB to make the move? Right now my bench QB is Weeden who isnt even guranteed to play next week when one of my QBs has a bye. Make the move?

    • frankgrimes says:
      (link)

      @mike: Dont trust Freeman but you prolly should make deal if your going to need a QB next week. Id try to make another deal first then settle for that one. Weeden could return but has similar tough week 4 matchup as freeman.

      • mike says:
        (link)

        @frankgrimes: Its not even the matchup that worries me as much as Brian Hoyer might just take his job from what it sounds like and I dont have any room to roster both Weeden and Hoyer… Id have to pick one to roster and hope to god hes the starter next week.

        • frankgrimes says:
          (link)

          @mike: Cleveland is a mess right now so if you just need a QB3 for bye weeks then Freeman for Bowe is good enough but it wouldn’t hurt to see what one of your other WRs might bring back instead. It also gives you both Weeden/freeman to try to flip when another owner is having injury/bye issues as well.

    • Sky

          With the moves the Browns are making, they’re calling their drafting of late a mistake and it’s been said they love Hoyer. I’m guessing Weeden only gets the job back if Hoyer gets injured.

    looking to make a quick trade since one of the teams in my league set Tavon Austin, Ben-Jar & Denarius Moore to available and requested the RB position..

    I’m looking to trade for his Tavon Austin / Gronkowski and I have the following players I’m willing to move…Trent Rich / Reggie Bush / Chris Ivory / Powell. / Rudolph / P Thomas… I also have Joique Bell (but want to keep him)

    what would be your first & second offer? I was thinking Gronk/Austin for Trent / Powell but feel like I’m giving up too much (first rd pick in Trent)..could go with Gronk/Austin for Reggie Bush & Powell or Kyle Rudolph?

    So my RCL team is in rough shape. I’m benching MJD this week, not even considering starting him. I have AP as my RB1 and I chose Snelling to start over Andre Ellington/MJD at RB2. Hartline is in my flex. Am I screwed?

    Should I be thinking about trading AP for a low end RB1 and decent RB2? I’ve tried trading Colston for a low end RB2, I’ve tried trading Jordy for a low end RB2/Flex and I’ve tried trading MJD for J. Bell. All trades denied.

    Should I think about trading Demaryius Thomas for a high end RB2?

    I’m hoping Ellington ends up turning into a Sproles type player this year. I’m tempted to start him over Snelling. Looks like Mendenhall will be playing this weekend though.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I don’t think you’re screwed. Snelling should get a chance at the GL and I think he’s good for 40-60 total yards. Keep your ears peeled about Rashard for Sunday. Pretty sure he’s good to go but if he’s inactive, Ellington will be very active for passing, I’d think. Would most likely be a Snelling upgrade.

      I wouldn’t be shopping him. Just gotta show patience, RE: AP

      If you have Colston and Jordy, moving DT isn’t a bad move. Just depends on who you’re getting and what the other team needs. Don’t sell yourself on it just being an RB2.

      • Shake N Bacon says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Yeah I’m banking on the fact that Snelling gets a goal line carry or two. If Mendy does sit though, I think I’ll take my chances with him. Glad you like him as well.

        I’m not frustrated with AP, just wondering if he’s my only good trade bait at the moment. I might test the waters on DT.

        I picked up Sam Bradford as RG3 insurance and as a fill-in for RG3 during his bye week. The Rams play the Jags that week (5). Hopefully the rust shakes off of RG3 soon, or I may be plugging Bradford in for him.

        • Shake N Bacon says:

          Nah, I meant show patience with your team, RE: AP. Don’t think you’d be upset about AP so far. You’ll get smaller parts that are good but not as reliable. THink you’re better holding onto what you have there.

          Yeah, RG3 is scaring me personally. Bradford’s a nice pickup. Liked him in the preseason and so far he hasn’t disappointed.

    Jaquizz over Trent? Yes, this is a serious question..ha. 0.5 ppr, and also we get 1 point per 30 return yards. Thanks.

    • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:

      @JoeMorgan’sMustache: Oh, and one more while I am thinking about it…for another league. If Bush plays, think I gotta roll with him. If that’s the case, at flex who would you play…Bilal Powell or Michael Floyd? Thanks again.

      • frankgrimes says:
        (link)

        @JoeMorgan’sMustache: That’s tough either could help out. I’d go with Powell unless Fitz doesn’t play. I can’t decide if I’m starting Trent either. I have better options than you but over Quizz I think I would go with Trent Miami run D is tough.

        • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
          (link)

          @frankgrimes: Yeah, I hear ya…50/50 on each myself. Hard to see Trent doing much…but then again it’s Jaquizz Rodgers…lol. One team where I am trying to decide Floyd/Powell…I have Lacy and Sjax, and it’s a fairly deep league ( 14 teams…start 8 IDP’s). Needless to say last week was terrible. Appreciate the response.

          • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
            (link)

            @JoeMorgan’sMustache: Also, if Bush sits then of course I start both Powell and Floyd..we shall see.

        I think you have to go Trent. He catches passes too and they said he’s gonna carry the load Sunday. Rodgers is very limited upside.

        I’ll take Floyd there.

        • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
          (link)

          @Sky: Yeah, I can over think some of these things…just curious on thoughts since he was with the team for only two practice days…his playbook knowledge is rather limited, and SF hates to let anyone run on them. Love this for him long term of course. Prob will roll with him and Floyd…thanks.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            No worries, I understand. Think he’ll still get his shots in the passing game, too. I trust that the Colts are gonna give him the ball like they said. Maybe some simple play setups to make sure he gets his reps. I consider him an unsafe RB2 to start but I’m being serious, Rodgers is gonna really disappoint this weekend. He’s looked bad running the ball.

            • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
              (link)

              @Sky: Yeah, Jaquizz is not very good…only reason he was a thought in my mind was the 0.5 ppr and return yards. Gonna stick with Trent.

    I commented in your older post by accident, but, with Pierce starting now, which one are you sitting?
    Pierce
    Dangelo Williams
    Murray

    I freaking hate Demarco Murray, hate that I own him, so I’d have no problem sitting him against a stout Rams D. Just need some support. On the flip side, all this hype about Pierce worries me that he’s going to put up a dud.

      I still have Pierce behind those two but we’re talking RB11/14/17 for me.

    In a redraft, how do you rank Ace Sanders at this point? Would you drop him for Andre Ellington? Snelling?

    Random tangent – It’s players like him that make me wish trades were more prevalent in the NFL. The Richardson trade makes me forget things like that just don’t happen. It’s the one thing that could make the NFL indisputably the best sport.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Yeah drop for Ellington. JAX keeps drafting talented WR and then sticking then with subpar QB play so I hear ya

  53. mcbainus says:
    (link)

    Another question:

    In a PPR league, where receiving yards are 5 per point instead of the standard ten, how would you rank the following three players, and if you tiered them, would any be in a different tier than the others?

    B. Marshall
    Dem. Thomas
    R. Cobb

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I’d rank Marsh slightly ahead of DT and then Cobb behind those two. Only two games in, don’t think my rankings have been dramatically altered at this point

  54. HP2 says:

    12 team standard need to choose 2 from this lineup of the RB position real weak in this position
    T Rich
    Snelling
    Starke

    Traded D Rich last week for Cam got in trouble when S Jax went down and T Rich got traded made Bradshow irrelevant for bye week fill in.

    whats up, hoping you can help out. Would you trade DeAndre Hopkins (WR4) for David Wilson? Would you trade A.Brown too if he counters with that? Also, do you still recommend handcuffing Ridley w/Bolden or is C.Michael or M.Wheaton better stashes?

    RBs: DMartin, S.Ridley, F.Jax, L.Bell, I.Pead, K.Davis
    WR: D.Thomas, M.Wallace, Antonio Brown, Hopkins, A.Jefferey

    12-team .5PPR 3WR/2RB/Flex. 15 week season NO PLAYOFFS.

    Thanks

  56. Ian says:

    I need some trade advice. I have a strong team in my 12-team (non-PPR) league with tremendous RB depth.

    QB: Stafford
    RB: Peterson, Ridley, Miller, Moreno, Bernard, Tate, Le’Veon Bell, McGahee
    WR: Julio Jones, Nelson, Decker, Marlon Brown
    TE: Cook

    I feel like the logical thing to do with so much depth is to package a couple serviceable guys in a 2-for-1 swap, but I’m unsure what type of players I should be targeting. Who would you recommend I try to deal, and what potential trade targets should I aim for?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You don’t have any needs. Can try 2-1 with an RB and WR for an upgrade but its not really necessary

    • frankgrimes says:
      (link)

      @Ian:
      tremendous? meh
      I’d aim top ten guys like Dez Graham Martin McCoy Gronk

      • Ian says:
        (link)

        @frankgrimes: Maybe it doesn’t qualify as “tremendous,” but this week I found myself having to choose 3 starters from 5-6 RBs who (according to ECR and Sky’s rankings) should ALL be started in a 12-team league.

        Would you advise packaging two of Miller/Moreno/Bernard/Decker in an offer for a top ten RB or WR, or is that giving up too much?

  57. Ecstatic Giraffe says:
    (link)

    I’m in a little bit of bind deciding who to start as my rbs. I have both MJD and Steven Jackson. I managed to pick up snelling and ellinton, I already had ivory on the bench. Our flex position is a qb/rb/wr/te. So I i have stafford as my flex and rogers as my starter. Which leaves me two spots for rb. Which two should I go with?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Snelling/MJD would be the safe calls. Could swap in Ellington over MJD if you’re feeling frisky.

      • Ecstatic Giraffe says:

        Its my own fault, I’ve never played fantasy football before. I’ve actually only watched 3.5 football games ever as well so I didn’t really know who was injury prone or anything like that. Live and learn though!

        @Ecstatic Giraffe: @frankgrimes: Ignore Grimey, he’s been touting all off-season not to draft SJax and told you to take guys like Ridley, D-Wil over him. Needless to say, Grimey has a heart full of hate for SJax.

    1 snelling or bernard or hilton at flex? non-PPR. have mathews at RB 2 also. Bernard barely missed that cut.
    2. PPR if bush plays him or moreno. I’m thinking Bush really shouldn’t play even if able to. He seems like he already is pretty messed up, will only get worse while playing with it.

            Did you draft him in the first round or near the last? Frank, they’re kickers. They don’t matter. That’s the part you’re not getting. They’re a stream-worthy roster spot. Go ahead and pick up Brown.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      You’re selling low on Bowe throwing him in that trade. Depends how worried you are about him. Graham is the top TE in the game. If he fits on your team he’s worth it

    Do you not think its a good idea to trade MJD n Bowe for a Cobb or a Bryant or som,eone like that?? I’m in a 3WR league and I have DT, Bowe, Nicks and Chris Givens. I’m in need of another receiver. By backs are Doug M, Sproles MJD n Richardson. Don’t you think I’ll be better off without them 2 and having another quality receiver or do you think i’m wrong??

        If you have to start 2 RBs and only have 4, what happens during bye weeks? What happens when one of your RBs gets injured? You have to think about your roster ROS. Can’t be throwing away your depth to get one player, no matter how good they are.

    i’m guessing the deal with nicks is just that the NYG line is getting torn up. But i read that d-rich was healthy, what’s going on there? due to having wilson/MJD i’m actually playing that bum.

            @Sky: that makes more sense. I guess i’m stuck hoping d-rich got hurt before the game, as he had no touches of any type.

    we still sticking with m.brown over
    1. 1 pt per return yard PPR league: these guys ginn/burleson/patterson/hill/washington/avant/l.moore/jeffery/lafell/sanu
    2. standard non-PPR ginn/avant/jeffery/sanu/dobson. I also have MJD/wilson/d-rich/woodhead/peterson at RB. have to play 2 and could play 3 with flex.
    2a.Am i better off with m.brown and streater as my 4 and 5 WR’s (amendola and crabtree hurt) or should I drop one of them to try to get GB’s Franklin. I’m guessing just keep the 2 WR’s (streater and best of that group)
    3. same type league as in (2); m.brown or one of fleener (te and wr the same in this league)/woods/clay/roberts/washington/baldwin/streater/avant/burleson/dobson.

    those targets (and getting out targeted by clark) ain’t gonna work. In one of these leagues I actually had to start brown. eck. thanks.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: in 1. sorry, it’s 1 pt per 10 return yards (same as scrimmage yards) not 1 to 1, jesus, that would be insane.

        Are you asking start sit questions or drop/pick up questions? Seems to be a combo.

        1) Hill/Jeffery
        2) Jeffery
        2a) Go ahead and drop Brown for Franklin just in case GB does stick with him. WOuld be surprised if they did, though
        3) Fleener

        • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
          (link)

          @Sky: drop pick up only questions. just did it immediately after the games. so 1.attempt to get franklin by dropping brown, if not get jeffery for brown, or 2.should jeffery be added over streater even if i get franklin?
          3. in the fleener answer i’m guessing you don’t trust burleson’/avant/streater to get consistent yards going forward. fleener didn’t get a lot of targets either, of course today there were few luck attempted passes.

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Keep streater. Burleson will eventually cede touches to Broyles. Avant had one good game on a night the Eagles were in disarray. Streater has Pryor throwing to him. Fleener is the TE1 in a typically pass-happy offense. Think he makes sense.
