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

A week is in the books and it’s time to absolutely freak out.  Tom Brady is horrible, time to drop him for Terrelle Pryor!

Like a GOP reaction to Obama having his foot on the Oval Office desk, then the subsequent overreaction to the jokes about overreactions, there’s been a lot of drama to overreactions.  Chill out people!  It’d be like a biologist getting all angry because that’s not what the Fox really says… Idea!  Colbert cuts that video with Fox News people freaking out over the gobbledygook in the chorus.  Comedy gold.

Point is – don’t worry about tough week ones and keep playing your studs.  Barring a late scratch I’m still playing Roddy White, who despite the bum ankle and only out there as a “decoy,” still got a red zone catch and I think gets more involved.  I’m not benching him for some scrub, but he does obviously move down a few spots.

Taking a look at last week’s picksShane Vereen went off, Miles Austin grabbed 10 catches and since RCL is PPR I’ll call that a win, and Rashard Mendenhall was decent, albeit probably a loss.  Kenbrell Thompkins (in week 1) was decent in a PPR, but Lance Moore was brutal.  For the benchers Eddie Lacy looked a lot better than I thought and I’m buying where I can, Eli Manning had a huge second half after looking brutal – wish that game had just ended at halftime.  DeAngelo Williams looked great but lost a critical fumble making him a push, and Golden Tate with 4 for 51 was a push as well.  What pained me the most was Owen Daniels catching 2 TDs, the second one giving me a loss in one league and the icing on the cake for a bad opening week.  I will never listen to JB again!  Didn’t we just talk about overreactions, angry italicized voice?!  Here’s to bouncing back in week 2 (NOTE – these are not always recommendations for 1-for-1 swaps, just guys I like who are understarted and guys I hate overstarted):

POSSIBLE STARTERS

Philip Rivers (3.9%, 5%) Great, now I have to love a Charger and be a Charger fan for the day with JayWrong.  They better not be terrible!  Well actually, I think they will be terrible against the Eagles, in what will be a shoot out with Chip Kelly trying to run plays faster than sprints to the buffet line.  That means a lot of garbage time passing for Rivers, and we saw this sort of dynamic on Monday Night Football with RGIII salvaging his fantasy day late.  You’re probably only playing Rivers in 2 QB leagues or 14+ team leagues, but I like him over Jay Cutler, Matt Schaub and even Tony Romo.

Ben Tate (10.0%, 11%) A sneaky flex play this week, I think Tate does some serious damage with his split carries with Arian Foster.  As I mentioned in my DraftKings picks for week 2, Tate gashed the Titans in 2011 – his last healthy season – and with the Texans looking to come out strong after looking atrocious against the Chargers in week 1, I think they get up big early.  Tate looked explosive against the Chargers rushing for 55 yards on 9 carries (6.1 YPC) and caught both targets for another 7.  Think he improves on those with a junk time score.

Ahmad Bradshaw (28.4%, 24%) With the freak Vick Ballard injury Thursday in practice, Bradshaw becomes the lead back in an offense that will want to establish the run.  Bradshaw is also a solid pass catcher and they like him in pass protection, so he’s going to see a ton of the field.  I’m a little surprised he’s started so infrequently; maybe owners are tinkering late.  As they would say in The League, “He’s a tinkerer!”

Rueben Randle (4.9%, 13%) As I talked about on the Spadora on Sports radio show yesterday, I like both Randle and Andre Roberts this week because of their great target to reception ratios.  Randle caught 5 for 101 on 6 targets and I think has another great game in junk time as brother Peyton and the Broncos light up the scoreboard.  Even a bruised rib-Tony Romo offense was able to move the ball on the Giants, so this will be a great shootout.  Start Randle with confidence.

Brian Hartline (8.9%, 29%) Maybe the most underrated 1,000-yard receiving season in history, Hartline was going undrafted in a number of leagues and is well on his way to backing up his 2012 campaign.  Going 9 for 114 and a touch in week one (on a whopping 14 targets), I think he can get double-digit looks again this week in what should be a pass-friendly attack against the Colts.  I know the Fins will want to establish Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, but easier said than done.  Hartline needs to be started in far more leagues.

SON OF A BENCH

David Wilson (79.4%, 57%) You know, I just can’t wait for the podcast on Monday and just rant at Nick for being right on David Wilson.  The “technical difficulties” keeping me from getting on the show so he could do another bad impression – lame.  It’s not that I was right to hate on David Wilson all last year and all this year, it’s that I was very right.  How you could start a guy who put up a negative last week is beyond me, and I know my lead was about overreactions, but I hated Wilson from the start.  It doesn’t help the matchup is about as bad as it could get – the Giants are going to be down early, they don’t trust Wilson in pass protection, and they won’t be able to run the ball anyway.

Ryan Mathews (33.6%, 40%) As I said above on Rivers, I think Philly’s Chip Beef, I mean, Kelly offense will get ahead early on Sunday, and while Mathews is a good pass catcher, I think we see a good dose of Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown in third down passing mode late.  I still like Mathews a lot and thought he looked pretty good against a tough Texans D, but in the few leagues I have him I’m rolling with other options.

Daryl Richardson (27.1%, 36%) Another guy not necessarily started in tons of leagues – I was really uninspired with how Richardson looked in week 1.  Even though he had 25 touches (20 carries and 5 catches), he didn’t really do much with them with a long run of 10 yards.  I think the Atlanta defense comes out strong and the Rams find themselves down.  It becomes a lot closer in PPR, he’s a fringe bench there, but in standard leagues I’m not touching him this week.

Mike Wallace (80.9%, 50%) It seems like Yahoo is catching on, but ESPN players – Wallace still started in over 80% of leagues?  Then again Danny Amendola is started in 57.7% of leagues, so the viability of these numbers is very low.  It was a rough week 1, and while I thought Wallace was becoming a slight value in drafts this year, I didn’t end up with him on any teams as he just didn’t fall far enough for me to pull the trigger.  Even though Hartline had the big week 1, I don’t see any way that the Colts would shift the additional coverage to him and leave Wallace with light attention.  I see another disappointing week.

Torrey Smith (44.1%, 81%) Yahoo standard leagues start more WRs than ESPN inflating Smith’s start % a tad, but I don’t like him this week.  NBAH.  My new WR motto.  Never Bet Against Haden.  Even though Marlon Brown looked decent and the Ravens TE got junk time work, Haden is going to blanket Smith from snap 1.  I’d go with other options.

If you have any last second decisions, shoot some comments below or tweet me @jbgilpin.   Good luck in week 2!

    Morning JB,
    Who are you putting in at flex in a PPR league?

    T Austin
    A Roberts
    Britt
    Fred Jackson
    Roddy White

    My current starters are
    RB : Bradshaw/DMac
    WR : AJohnson, Cecil Shorts and Stevie Johnson

    Gracias in advance

    • Cooper Clux Clan says:
      (link)

      @Cooper Clux Clan:
      In regards to who you’d start at Flex, I assume your going to say White so who would you play after that if White is a no-go?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Cooper Clux Clan: Yeah it’d be White for me, and he’s going to play, but if something funky happens my next guy would be Austin

    With the weather looking like a torrential downpour at Lambeau right now, is RG3 still a strong play or would Bradford indoors in what could be a shootout be a better option?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Cooper Clux Clan: Definitely makes it closer, but I’d still roll the dice on RG3

      • Pete says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: How about between Vick and RG3? Now I think the weather might push me to start Vick this week.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Pete: Yeah I’d go Vick there too.

  3. Steve Stevenson says:

    Playing a pretty stacked team this week and I keep going back and forth on Wilson vs Pryor at QB. We get a 5 pt bonus at 300 yds passing or 100 yds rushing, and it’s 4 pts per pass TD. I like Pryor to hit that rushing bonus more than Wilson to hit the passing one, but I hate the idea of sitting Wilson.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Yeah you can’t bench Wilson there. I disagree about the bonuses, I think it’ll be a lot more likely Wilson throws for 300 than Pryor rushing for 100, it’s really hard for a QB to rush for yardage like that. I’ve got Wilson in a few leagues, think he has a huge game.

  4. drew says:

    Right now have Wilson in Flex. Only real options instead would be Marlon Brown, Woodhead, Streater, Harry Douglas, Roy Helu, or Jerome Simpson. Would you put any of them over wilson? Full PPR.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @drew: Yikes. Brown is the only close one for me. I actually think I would play Brown, but it’s tough to think of that situation for any of my teams since I don’t own Wilson… But yeah I’d roll the dice on Brown.

      @Barker: Nah I’d stand pat right now, a lot of those are about even on the wire. Not a big Tate fan, I think you gotta hold Jennings for the upside.

  6. Pick one TE & one Flex options for PPR:

    Julius Thomas
    Jordan Cameron
    Marlon Brown
    Doug Baldwin

    Thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @vultures: I’d go Thomas and Cameron, assuming it’s a flex that includes TE. If not, Brown would be the guy.

  7. nick says:
    (link)

    Hey man, do you like Hartline at WR over R White, seems crazy to do but I dont think I can trust Roddy this week (aka hell get a TD & 80yds).

    At flex I have Joique Bell….again him or White?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @nick: Man, I know I said in the open I would leave White in there, but I do like Hartline a lot. I’d roll the dice with the Fin.

  8. Oppo Taco says:
    (link)

    I’m assuming you would flex rueben randle over marlon brown and knowshon Moreno? roddy is my wr2 this afternoon. Thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: Yup, love Randle, he’d be my play there.

  9. John Olerud says:

    Hartline

      @John Olerud: Man… I mean my hate is so strong I might be too strong but I’d leave out Wilson.

  10. Kimosabi509 says:

    I read your deal about roddy and scrubs. Is Marlon Brown a scrub? Or is he a possible replacement for Roddy?. I have Dez amendola roddy and josh Gordon n picked up marlon from waivers.

    Thx for the advice, bro. Have a great funday Sunday, y’all.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Kimosabi509: I think Marlon is a scrub. For fantasy of course. But I do think he’s a deep league play, but would stick with Roddy. Thanks man, you too!

    Have some trade proposals in my inbox. Non ppr
    My Lamar miller for ivory and montee?

    Wr: Calvin and Steve smiff

      @Zandy: Trades – 1 – no, 2 – Nah, but do like Boldin 3 – Nah.

  12. FilthyRich says:

    Start David Wilson, Pierre Thomas or Joique Bell at RB in non-PPR league?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @FilthyRich: Ugh. Bell.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: i know we’re supposed to be down on wilson, but damn man. In a NON-PPR?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Bell is a goalline back as well. Yup, until Wilson proves it wrong

  13. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Also sproles and ty Hilton for Ridley?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: That one is closer, but I’d still probably hold.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: do you think I need to aggressively upgrade my rbs? Maybe I’m pressing too much, too early. Losing Vereen just has me on tilt.

        So my rb lotto tickets are hunter, bolden and Woodhead
        Do you like any of these fa’s more? Or wait to see what happens this week?
        Michael bush, helu, Donald brown, Dunbar, knile, Felix jones, all the AZ backs besides Mende, Jackie battle/shonn Greene

        Thanks!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: Nah I’d hold for the FA’s. I think you hold the RBs you have but still look for trades, maybe if Hilton or Marlon goes off, pair them with another bench guy for a RB3.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: thanks! Are thompkins and corderelle Patterson droppable for me? Worth hoarding more rbs since my wrs are pretty deep?

            • JB Gilpin

              JB Gilpin says:
              (link)

              @Zandy: Definitely hold Thompkins. Think all these targets he’s getting will translate. Patterson is droppable tho.

  14. Kimosabi509 says:

    Pls rank for week 2: michael Floyd, Rueben randle, Brian hartline.
    Thx

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Kimosabi509: Hartline, Randle, Floyd

  15. Scott says:
    (link)

    JB

    Have a rather obvious decision at TE: Jordan Cameron or Brandon Myers. I will be starting Cameron in another league and last week I rolled with Myers just as not to be burned in two leagues if Cameron lays an egg. Is this a good strategy or just roll with Cameron since he has the higher upside?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Scott: I think you roll with Cameron in both, he’s so much more a focal point, we saw Thomas burn the Ravens last week at the TE position.

  16. the imp says:
    (link)

    Morning JB,
    If Vick plays well again (top 5ish say), how good of an RB would you want to target in return for a trade?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @the imp: A pretty good one, I would look at the teams with the worst QBs and see who they have. Maybe a 15-25 range kinda guy.

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks. What about TE, would you take the risk on Gronk? Any other TE besides Graham (the Graham owner doesn’t need QB)?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @the imp: Yeah Gronk sounds about right, while I like Cameron and Thomas and Cook for upside as well, they’re not Gronk.

    I ‘m not sure I can bench Wilson.

    My options are Bryce Brown, Torrey Smith. Denarius Moore.
    Or FAs Douglas, Redman, Stills, Baldwin.
    My borderline starts that I’m playing are Givens and Joique Bell.

    Play Wilson and hope for the best right?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Buddah Lovaz: Yeah, if it wasn’t Haden on Smith I would go with him, but Wilson is worth that low a gamble.

    • Slim

      Buddah Lovaz says:
      (link)

      @Buddah Lovaz: Non-PPR. Bonus for 100/125/150 rushing or receiving.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Buddah Lovaz: Yeah I don’t see any way those other guys get to 100, Wilson has a very very outside shot to, could get a lot on one play.

  20. Drew says:

    Hey JB,

    I was thinking of throwing Julius Thomas in TE and Martellus Bennett in the flex. Plus I have Torrey Smith, Jordy Nelson, Andre Johnson and Golden Tate for WR’s. 2 starters. Your thoughts?

    Thanks man.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Drew: I’d go Thomas and then Tate at your flex. I assume your 2 WRs are Nelson and AJ.

      • Drew says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Exactly. Last thing, 49ers or Ravens defense?

        • JB Gilpin

      (link)

      @Wallpaper Paterson: I’d go Flacco, almost made him my QB pick. Cleveland’s run D looked unreal vs. Dolphins. Rice is obviously better than Miller/Thomas, but think Ravens will need to pass. Then Woodhead, same reason why I hate Mathews this week, think lots of third down pass mode late. Then Hilton.

    ShouldI be looking at QB help. I only have Russell Wilson on the roster and SF Def is legit and I’m reading reports that the weather in Seattle tonight could be rainy and windy. I could add Rivers, Flacco, Pryor, Alex Smith, Cutler, Palmer or Tannehill

    what do you think of Isaiah Pead going forward?….theres a report that he’s gonna get a lot of touches this wk.

    for example,in a ppr league Im desperate for RB help.I have Ridley,Morris,L. Bell,Kendall Hunter,Redman at RB or I could drop Dobson.

      @guidedbyvoices: Mehhh, still think Richardson gets a lot of touches. Worth owning in deep leagues, but that’s about it. I’d wait and see this week before pulling the trigger on getting him

    Ej Manuel or Big Ben at QB this week? I’m very worried about Pitt’s O. 16 team league…

    Thanks!

      @mpc: I’d stick with Big Ben

    Non-PPR standard league:

    Start 2: David Wilson, CJ2K, Sproles, Bradshaw, Tate, Ryan Mathews

    Pick 1: Detroit (@ARI), Oakland (JAX), Carolina (@BUF), or PHI (SD)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @bobbo: CJ and Sproles. Oakland.

    Romo, Bradford, or Rivers for a 2nd QB?

    Pierce or Starks over Moreno?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Still Romo ROS. Maybe Starks, depends on Lacy’s injury timetable

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thanks.

        What’s your take on this trade:

        His Kaepernick/Givens for my Romo/Garcon?

        Other QB is Wilson. Other WRs are Green, Dez, Decker, Hartline, Gordon.

    Sick to my stomach…have Sjax, Lacy, and Bush on one of my teams. All injured…I can’t believe this.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @JoeMorgan’sMustache: Geez! Horrible… At least the first two walked off OK and I think Bush came back into the game

      • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Yeah…killed me though since I lost both of them withing the first few min of their games. Lacy has a concussion so he is iffy for week 3. Also, it really sucked seeing James Starks just go the hell off. I’m not sure on Sjax for upcoming week…thigh bruise. Bush came back in…but then left again…getting MRI. To add salt to the wound, my starting safety, Branch…well he got hurt early and was done for the game giving me a goose egg. Just a brutal day. My team looked great coming in…a real contender in a 14 teamer…funny how in just a few hours things now look so bleak.

        To top it off I played the highest scoring team last week…I scored the second most points..lol. Even with my injuries I see 5-6 teams I would still beat…but of course faced none of em…just how it goes.

    So tom coughlin doesn’t play the only running threat on his team and they can’t run the ball?
    Embarrassing..
    Broncos know without Wilson in the game..they have no chance
    Giants should be embarrassed…awful play calling..
    Play this kid..give him 20touches..
    They deserve to be 0-2

    Giants fan

      @Mike: David Wilson can’t hold onto the ball, and while explosive, isn’t very good. Signed, David Wilson hater since day 1

    Cecil Shorts gets 40 yds on the last meaningless drive. Those 4 pts could do me in. All day he did nothing.

      @Harris: Yikes! Yeah what a joke some junk time can be… Hope you hold em out!

      • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Garbage time can be a killer sometimes. GB took the peddle off the gas in the second half, didnt move the ball much, and RG III racked up some good garbage time stats for the second straight week. He threw 2 td’s on 4th and Goal…may cost me a match up…crazy.

    would you trade any of the following backs for David Wilson? Ivory/Moreno/DeAngelo. trying to buy low on wilson, thanks

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: Yes to Ivory, maybe Moreno 50/50, not DeAngelo

      • Oppo Taco says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Trade Moreno/Roddy for Wilson and one of Steve Smith or James Jones? Like smith or jones more ? thanks

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Oppo Taco: I wouldn’t, Moreno looks good and I think I like him more than WIlson ROS and like Roddy more than both those guys ROS.

      @Wilsonian: Accept!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Wilsonian: I actually think I’d hold, I don’t think Wilson and Kaepernick are that far apart – the difference between them isn’t Garcon to Givens IMO

  45. Chicken Dinner says:

    Accept!

    Whatcha think man. I give Colston, Ridley I get Trich. Have Jordy, Cruz, a johnson, edelman lefr at WR. With ridley underperforming MJD hurt and or shitty I’m hurtin

      @Scott Steelers: Yeah I’d do that one, like it

    I have Russell Wilson and Marshawn launch on the same team. I’m up to my neck in running backs and was just offed a trade where i would get Matt Ryan and trade to him Knowshon Moreno. Having two Seahakws in a game like last nights is frustrating, and I feel like it’ll be hard pressed to have games where both Lynch and Wilson put up 20 plus points. So, would you do this trade?

    My Rbs’s- Lynch, Ridley, Gore, Moreno, G. Bernard
    My Wr’s- Decker, Edelmam, Jeffrey, Moore.

    OR!! I could put in a waiver claim for Rivers and keep Moreno. Do you see a statistical difference going forward beaten Rivers and Ryan?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The 12th Man: I’d rather pick up Rivers, and start Wilson almost every week the rest of the way. I think Wilson turns it around and don’t think you’ll be as frustrated having both Seahawks down the road. I do like Ryan better, but not at the price of Moreno. Plus I buy Moreno as a guy to hold onto or trade for someone better.

    People still watch Colbert!? Well phugue me… Had no idea that dude’s song still resonated as hip and relevant. I’m getting old. Oh, team name for you.

    Isaiah Pead Yoosaiah Pooped.

    Hey, shut the s#@t up! That’s at least as funny as Colbert.
