Happy Sunday, Razzball Nation!  If you’re like me, waking up for Sunday during football season is a morning filled with hope, dreams, optimism.  Then you go nuts in your head thinking, “what if the Panthers actually do win?”  Then they just shellac the Giants, and I felt like I was in a Twilight Zone.  Maybe because I am a fantasy nerd (all people who put “expert” after fantasy in the terminology are kidding themselves – NERDS!!!), I sometimes dream about sports – and typically about vastly skewed numbers.  What, T.Y. Hilton got 223 Yards and 4 TDs?!  Something like that.  So while my Panthers put up a scoreline that I literally couldn’t even subconsciously comprehend, I had a fantasy team in my dynasty league put up the lowest score I’ve ever had in 10+ years.  It was like being a few levels deep in Inception.  I may never make it out alive!  Save me, Leo!  Save me!

Here’s to a week where things balance back out to normal, Roddy White getting over a bum ankle, Ray Rice being able to gut it out, and everything else fantasy owners need to right their sinking ships.

Looking back at last week’s picksBernard Pierce showed why he’d be a fantasy first-rounder with a starting gig, and that was my only home run.  Philip Rivers got a TD but meh and DeAndre Hopkins had a nice PPR 6 for 60.  Ugh, the Tyler Eifert call really bummed me out – I saw a big game there – but thanks to Johnathan Franklin, the Bengals O didn’t have win the game.  And Miles Austin pulled a hammy, so while not entirely the worst call, his hammy’s are worse than Porky Pig’s.  For my benchers, again, felt horrible with the Russell Wilson call and legit put in Rivers over him in that dynasty league.  But hey – I was gonna lose either way.  I don’t care if you’re mad – I’m calling Trent Richardson a push – that goal-line TD on his first carry from the one was a joke, then he only had 34 additional yards on the ground.  MJD was a loss though, he got a TD, good to see him getting back on track even though he was a game-time start.  Roddy still struggled with the ankle, and Kyle Rudolph indeed proved he has to get a TD for a nice fantasy day and disappointed.  A subpar week for LSD.  Here’s who I like in week 4, with their % started in ESPN and Yahoo, respectively (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

Jacquizz Rodgers (12.2%, 23%) As I mentioned in this week’s DraftKings picks, seeing Jacquizz get 18 carries in the first week of Steven Jackson missing time (to Jason Snelling‘s 11) was really encouraging despite Jacquizz getting less love in the passing game.  But in what should be a fairly high-scoring affair with the Falcons desperate for a tough road win, I think Jacquizz gets back involved in the passing game along with 10 plus carries.  Kinda unreal that Quizz got 53 catches on only 59 targets last year, and even though a lot of those are easy-money checkdowns, there is a nice rapport there with Matt Ryan.  I think Jaquizz is a must start flex in PPR.

Jason Avant (0.7%, 2%) While he should be only a deep league option, I think Avant should be looked at as a strong WR3 or flex option in 12+-teamers in what is primed to be a great shootout game.  The Eagles going to Mile High has all fantasy owners salivating – the Eagles want to play fast, it will give Peyton Manning even more offensive run, and the Eagles will need junk time.  Well, within that junk time should be a lot of Avant checkdowns, as he’s the main safety valve for Michael Vick, and the primary move-the-chains option.  Avant is coming off 7 targets in week 2 and 8 last week (including that nice 22-yard TD against the Chiefs) and I think gets it to double-digits in targets in this one.

DeAndre Hopkins (12.6%, 31%) Andre Johnson is going to start, and despite him saying he’ll only be 80%, I think he still commands the majority of Richard Sherman’s coverage and Hopkins gets a lot of targets.  I think Seattle wins this one pretty handily, so a lot of looks to Hopkins could be in some late come-back drives.  If you’re Seattle, I think you let a rookie in Hopkins beat you before a gimpy AJ.

Santana Moss (4.4%, 10%) Say what you will about the vet, but he’s started the season with three straight double-digit PPR games, and in what is a must-win for the Redskins, I don’t think they absolutely blow out the Raiders in Oakland, but do try and push for big points especially early.  Pierre Garcon is the obvious main target, and since the Raiders have trouble against the pass (8th most fantasy points to WR thus far) I see another solid game from Moss if you’re strapped for options in a deeper league.

Coby Fleener (8.8%, 16%) In Fleener’s first week as the official alpha dog TE in Indy, he really disappointed with only 2 targets and 2 nabs for 13.  Even though the Colts should spank the Jags as bad as they bump-paddled the Niners last week, I think Fleener gets more involved this time out.  We just saw the ghost of Zach Miller get two goalline TDs against the Jags last week, and while I don’t think Fleener necessarily scores twice, I do think he is a big part of the offensive attack up until the Colts are up 40 points.

SON OF A BENCH

Dwayne Bowe (45.3%, 71%) Owners are hopping off the Bowe-wagon, but he’s still started in a few too many leagues for me.  Sure the Giants give up tons of points in the passing game, but the Chiefs O is so F – ing conservative, it’s like a Pat Robertson telethon.  The Chiefs won’t need to push it, and while I think Bowe does have some nice games down the road, winning is winning and I’m sure he’s happy.

Joique Bell (42.5%, 46%) I like Bell as a player, and think without Reggie Bush he’s a must-start virtually every week, but with Bush back, Bell beckons a bust bersus Bears.  Eh, just wanted to try some alliteration there and stretched it… The Bears give up the third-least fantasy points to opposing teams’ backs and I think get the Lions into pass mode.  Bell is indeed part of the passing game as well, but I think Bush gets a lot of run with his explosiveness.

Andre Johnson (74.5%, 85%) All reports indicate AJ is going to start this one, which means a lot of Richard Sherman and why I like Hopkins so much above.  As I stated with Hopkins, I think if you’re Seattle, you still let a rookie beat you before Andre Johnson even if he is only playing on one leg.

Eddie Royal (32.4%, 37%) The darling of the first two weeks, it was a brutal fall from royalty in week 3.  Royal only commanded 2 targets catching them both for 34 last Sunday and I don’t think he’s the answer for moving the ball against the Cowboys this week.  I think what we saw in week 3 is closer to reality than weeks 1-2.

Kyle Rudolph (77.6%, 41%) I feel a little dirty – a little red-nosed if you will – going with Rudolph again, but his % started numbers are still astronomically high.  Games in London seem to be Grinch-like with their fantasy lines, and Rudolph will need a consistently moving Vikes offense behind band-aid Matt Cassel to get the goal-line targets he needs to get a TD and salvage a fantasy day.  I’m avoiding.

If you have any last second decisions, shoot some comments below or tweet me @jbgilpin.   Good luck in week 4!

    Pick 3 buddy boy
    Andre Johnson vs Sea (Sherman/injury)
    Cruz vs KC
    Colston vs Mia
    Edelman vs Atl
    Broyles vs Chi
    Leanin towards cruz, colston, broyles. I like all the edelman targets but its like 7 catches for 13 yards and 13 catches for 78 yards. The yardage is so minimal. What’s ur thoughts man?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Scott Steelers: I’d still go AJ over Broyles, I like the Broyles upside, but not quite over AJ who I’m down on. If PPR though, Edelman over AJ.

      • Scott Steelers says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: its .5 ppr. Yea I may do edelman over broyles then… glad I benched Cook. I dropped him even. Ill ride Julius out.

    Yo yo yo… not a lot of options here… two teams, PPR, short benches.

    J. Bell or Woodhead? Or some waiver fodder?

    J. Bell or Pierce?

    Is it me, or were there 5,000 conflicting injury report on anyone and everyone?! Also, I seriously dislike Belichick… we all need some Gronk.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @CL: Hah, first read I was like “a two team league?” Haha…. I’d still go Joique in #1, still waiting on Rice status in #2, I think Pierce either way but Pierce obviously gets the nod sans Rice.

      • CL says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: ha! Yeah, consensus is Pierce in one league and J. Bell in the other. Tough week for me for various reasons. Good luck!

    Looks like Pryor will be under center today…I’ve never owned McNimble or Denarius “I Could Find Moore on the Wire”, so starting Terrelle is very weird to me, to say the least. Born and raised in LA (my mom was a HUGE Rams fan till they moved to St Louis)…Raider fans always had this aura about them that i never cared for.

    Anyway, (yes, my rant is over) I’ll be watching the Raider game and hoping Terrelle goes HAM the way my Cam went off last week! Hoping Flash Gordon and JCam keep it up and make teams wanna sell the farm to get those two studs!

    Happy Football JB!

      @drew: Thompkins. Leaving out Le’Veon til we see it for now.

  13. Allen says:

    Dobson or Mike “bad hamstring, rookie qb, possibly no VJAX” Williams? Standard league…I’m leaning dobson.

    Thannks for ur input

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Allen: Yeah I think I’d go Dobson too, very scurred to start Williams… NE will need everyone to show up and still now Gronk.

      @The G: Hah – loved Cameron coming into the year, have a Cam & Cam team myself. As long as Flash stays in Cleveland and gets a million targets every game, that team will be toughhhh to beat

    Hey JB- need to fill two spots (WR2 and Flex) out of the following:

    – Roddy White
    – Eric Decker
    – Brandon Bolden

    Thoughts?

    • Buck Wild says:
      (link)

      @Buck Wild: forgot to add non-ppr. Also have Le’Veon but assuming you wouldn’t consider him

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Buck Wild: Think I like Le’Veon over Bolden, especially since non-PPR. But would still gamble Roddy gets a few red zone looks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Buck Wild: Hey man! I’m leaving out Bolden. A little gimpy (well so is Roddy haha) and just have a feeling Ridley has a big week coming at some point. And I could see Belichick giving Blount some run since it’s a team he used to play against.

  16. Mike says:

    Mike Wallace or Brian Hartline in a PPR? I’ve literally picked the wrong one every week this year, so I don’t trust my own opinion anymore. Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Mike: Haha – I think I go Hartline. The Saints D is better, still think Wallace is the guy to stop for opposing Ds

  18. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    WR3, standard scoring, 5pt bonus at 100 yds–Avant, Dobson or S. Moss? Need a big week, as I’m playing a stacked team that already had Gore go off.

    With Rice looking like he’s playing, I’ve got a tough decision in 2 leagues:
    1) same league as above, going for the home run–Rice, Pierce or L. Bell?
    2) standard scoring, just need some steady pts–Rice, Pierce or L. Miller?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d go Moss. Think he has the best upside of the 3. 1 – think you gotta still go Rice. 2 Rice as well

      @Butkus: Powell

  20. the imp says:
    (link)

    To pick up a WR for this week only, I would need to drop Pierce (short benches, nobody less valuable ROS to drop). Our PPR league owns about 42 RBs, but starts only 24. Do you make the drop or take a zero to hold Pierce until we are sure Rice is going to get better?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @the imp: Kinda depends on how you feel in your matchup, you think you have a good shot to win without? I’d hold PIerce. If you feel like you’re an underdog I think you let him go

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: That’s a good way to look at it. I’d go from a 18 pt dog to a 5 pt dog with the swap….another reason to lean to the drop. Thanks for the reply.

        • JB Gilpin

    Vick or RG3 today? I’ve slotted Vick for now, but my gut is screaming that Manning & Co. are going to have a huge time of possession advantage, which will lead to Vick disappointing. Thank you good sir.

    .5 PPR. Brandon Bolden or David Wilson. Was leaning Bolden for the receptions, but with the questionable tag and the Sunday night game, I think my hand is forced and I gotta go Wilson. I could pickup Blount in the event Bolden doesn’t play as insurance.

    Hopkins
    Julius Thomas
    Julio Jones

    Should I do this trade:

    That would leave me with Deangelo, Joique Bell, Daryl Richardson, and Ryan Mathews and my RB’s

    and my WR’s would be Megatron, Julio Jones, Josh Gordon, and Heyward-Bey.

    Trade Boldin and Deandre Hopkins for Gronk in a .5 PPR? My other receivers are Dez, Antonio Brown, Edelman, Tavon Austin, Kenbrell Thompkins. My current TE is Gates maybe he’ll have some trade value down the road if he keeps this up. What you think?

    Also who’s safer for tonight Ridley or Bolden also .5 PPR I’m actually leaning Bolden but don’t know.

      @Dave: Nah I’d hold, I loveeee Boldin. I think Ridley is much safer. He’s healthier and still the de facto lead back.

    I have V-Jax in two leagues and am questioning his ability to produce today.

    PPR: Broyles over V-Jax?
    .5 PPR: Edelman over V-Jax?

    Also need a flex in .5 PPR: CJ2K, Spiller, Hilton, or Hopkins? Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Velocity_X: Nah I still go VJax over Broyles, but would go Edelman in that other one. Would stick with Spiller in the last one, no prob!

    Mcgahee, Kenbrel, or Snelling

    My Rbs: Shady, Demarco, Sjax, Bryce Brown, Snelling, Macgahee

    Snelling currently in my flex. But could go Deandre Hopkins or Kenbrel.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dirtyd: I’d drop Snelling, think McGahee has slightly more ROS upside. Would put Hopkins in your flex

  44. JoeMorgan'sMustache says:

      JB Gilpin says:

      @John Olerud: I’d go Cutler, using him as a fill in for Cam and Rodgers in 2 leagues

  48. Scott says:
    (link)

    JB

    I don’t even know where to begin. In a real bad situation at 0-3 in 12 team 3 WR + FLEX league. 05. ppr. Cobb and Steve Smith on bye. Need to make a late pickup. Looking at Davone Bess versus banged-up Cincy secondary or Terrance Williams who is #2 in place of Miles Austin. Please let me know what to do in the desperate attempt.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Scott: Ugh doesn’t sound good, I think you need a home run hitter and would go with Williams.

  49. Baren says:

    Need 2:

    Josh Gordon
    Marques Colston
    Leveon Bell

    Thanks! Love the site!

      @Baren: Thanks for stopping by! I’d be leaving out Bell, still not ready to shoulder the load, overseas, like your WRs

  50. Natural Born Champs says:

    Hi,
    Levaon Bell, D.Hopkins or P.Thomas as my flex? PPR.

    Thanks buddy

  51. Oppo Taco says:

    Hey JB, who should I be flexing in a .5 ppr roddy white Brandon bolden or leveon bell. Thanks!
    This is also assuming that I should start Moreno as my rb2 over those options

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: I’d go Bell and yea Moreno is the clear favorite to me I those 3

  52. dirtyd says:
    (link)

    Thanks for the above answer. What about Lamar Miller or Joique Bell? .5 ppr

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @dirtyd: I’d go Miller

  53. The Vaproziers says:

    What up JB, got two questions for ya:

    Choose two to start: Bernard Pierce, David Wilson, Knowshon Moreno

    Choose three to start: David WIlson, Joique Bell, Lamar Miller, Knowshon Moreno, Steven Ridley.

    Right now, I got WIlson and Moreno

    and Wilson, Bell, Lamar.

    You swapping any of them out???

    What’s up, 12 team .5ppr. Spiller got hurt in the 3rd qtr. someone offered me Dez Bryant for djax and fjax. Should I accept ASAP, wait to hear more news on spillers condition? Wait to trade him to spillers owner if he’s hurt? Thanks for you advice

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Timmy riggins: Spiller didn’t look severely hurt. I think I do that one.

  56. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey JB, do you like Greg Jennings or Alshon Jeffery as a pick-up RIGHT NOW, dumping Holmes in my 10-team H2H?

    Also, I’m feeling more comfortable shedding Eddie Royal as he has 0 points through the 1st half…would you grab the other guy noted above or R Woods (I have Stevie Johnson who had -.10 today, what happened!?)?

    I have Russell Wilson as my only QB so maybe its time to grab a backup in Alex Smith, Schaub, Cutler, Hoyer, Locker or Cassel?

    Thanks for your help!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’d say Jennings. Upside with QB change. I’d get Jeffery too over Woods. Yeah the Bills just didn’t need much passing and the Ravens just took out Stevie. Don’t grab Locker! Just carted off. I’d get Cutler of those.

  57. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Wondering if I should get a new backup QB in my 10 teamed with Rg3 on bye. Rivers or Cutler better?

    • Nightpandas says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: sorry my backup QB right now is Wilson

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Nightpandas: I like Wilson the best of the 3 still. I would rank them Wilson, Rivers Cutlet

  58. Scott Steelers says:

    Mjd seroously sucks ball sack. Cruz (8th rd keeper) and MJD for murray (10th rd keeper) ?? Would leave me with a johhnsom, edelman, jordy, colston… thinkin about offering this. First with Gio 8th rd keeper as well as murray. If he doesn’t wanna give up both just taking murray… too much or? I have a combined 51.20 points from my 8 RB starts through 4 weeks… completely pathetic. I have alfred, mjd, ridley, bolden, woodhead and first waiver. Should I just hang tight rotating these assholes and hope for an injury to use waiver on or make a move??

    • Scott Steelers says:
      (link)

      @Scott Steelers: broyles really had a big role today just like everyone said…. haha 0 catches. Wtf? Thanks for talkin some sense into me on that one

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Scott Steelers: Haha – yeah I wasn’t buying the Broyles love as much, but indeed shocked he did a nada. Just never been 100% consistency next to Megatron. Ugh – rough RB but that seems like a lot to give up with the Giants terrible and they have to chuck it like we saw today. Maybe try MJD and Woodhead off this stupid big game he had for Murray. Could work.

        • Chicken Dinner says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: Stafford did miss him on a wide open probable TD.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @Chicken Dinner: I saw that too, but you have to factor that in with a guy coming off major injuries and missing preseason and first few weeks. Not the same rapport.

  59. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    PPR
    Forte/G.Tate
    Or
    Martin/A.Brown (PIT)

    Thanks

    • @Chicken Dinner: Forte is killin’ it in ppr and Martin has been disappointing by the standard he set last year. Bad trade.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: I think it’s razor close personally. Even with Glennon or whomever the Bucs try out at QB I think Martin can usually produce (today notwithstanding) and Brown is vastly more valuable than Tate. I actually like bottom side.

  60. Psychedelic says:
    (link)

    So what do you think about Bowe? It looked like on that last TD Alex Smith might have figured out that if Bowe is covered tight, he will still out jump the corner and come up with the ball and make a play. That has to be a good sign right? Alex Smith never really had a guy like that in SF so perhaps he just has to adjust a little bit.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Alex Smith is still a very limited QB with limited throwing range. The fact is, he doesn’t score a TD and we’re talking about a very boring fantasy day. Until they figure out other ways to get him involved, I’m not going to be aggressive in pursuing him.

  61. Psychedelic says:
    (link)

    Ya I mean I own him is why I was asking, but even if he doesn’t score a TD there the fact that Smith threw him the ball when he was covered so tightly, that just seemed like a good sign to me. He hasn’t really taken that chance before and more times than not Bowe will have superior ball skills and come down with the ball. And in games against tougher opponents when the dink and dunk isn’t working as well that could mean more of this.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ah, it could be a sign. I’m just having a hard time forgetting how involved Sean McGrath was to have much faith.

  62. Scott Steelers says:
    (link)

    Trade for woodhead won’t work with my buddy. Went to another person. Trade Colston (no keep value) for Le’veon Bell (11th rd keeper)? He has Brees and needs WR pretty badly. He may want Jordy Nelson with no big keeper value either. Andre Johnson, Cruz, Colston, Jordy, Edelman…. I feel like if I lose either ill survive just fine. We start 3 WRs no flex though. I’d rather trade colston, hoping him wanting that brees-colston combo will sell him. Whatcha think?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Scott Steelers: Yeah I’d rather trade Colston as well. But with no Moore this could be a big week – then again, wouldn’t go through until after tonight’s game so you’re prob fine.

      • Scott Steelers says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: yea I already won this week with colston still going tonight.
