So I know you’re all wondering – what do these Razzball guys really do with their lives!?  Spoiler!  You already know if you read Basketball.  Oh well…

If you don’t read/play Fantasy Basketball – give it a chance!  Start up an RCL League!  If you haven’t played it much, it’s the perfect blend of Fantasy Football and Baseball.  “Wait – why is JB shamelessly pandering?!  I thought he was gonna tell us about his life fighting crime!”   Whilst I keep the rogue streets of North Cackalacky free from the seedy (pork)underbelly of crime, I have unfortunately shifted my sleep schedule.  I had to buy a blast shield for my windows.  It was like I was in the Peach Trees Mega Block when Judge Dredd came.  Fortunately Michael Caine IS NOT my butler and that scene from Batman Begins didn’t happen where Bale goes – “Bats are nocturnal!”  I woulda just slapped that foo’.  Long, disheveled and borderline lunatic rantings aside (those last couple of sentences could’ve been from a Tehol article… Never go full Tehol!) – my point is I’ll be getting to your LSDs closer to noon than right away.  It also means I’m writing this up on my Palm Pilot while staking out the mean streets of the Triangle on Saturday Night.  So if anything changes dramatically on Sunday Morning, I’ll get to it before kickoff!

Looking back at last week’s picksJacquizz Rodgers was a win in PPR and I said was a must start in those leagues nabbing 6 catches and 88 total yards and Coby Fleener went off for 5 and 77 and a touch.  But man… My sleeper WRs… Yikes!  DeAndre HopkinsJason Avant, and Santana Moss all just had brutal games.  I guess the moral of the story is to use all my non-WR advice… Speaking to that, Dwyane Bowe finally had a good game, but in my defense he only had 3 for 24 before a late meaningless touchdown with the Chiefs up big and a bad missed tackle for the TD.  Andre Johnson also had a great game for being banged up and getting the Sherminator… Wait that’s Matt Ryan not Richard Sherman!  At least I was right on Joique Bell, Eddie Royal, and Kyle Rudolph having bad games.  Pretty clear cut 5-5 week.  Let’s get it back to a winning record with who I like in week 4 and 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

Kendall Wright (3.7%, 7%) I feel like coming into the year Jake Locker was mocked for being so inaccurate that his O-coordinator had to hold a private meeting about dribbles on the toilet rim.  Spring for the urinals, Titans!  Anyway, with Locker doing his best 85-year old retiree impression and hurting his hip, it opens the door for Ryan Fitzpatrick who used to be a pretty good QB back in the day!  With the Chiefs coming into town, I doubt Chris Johnson can get much done (see below) and Fitz will have to move the ball.  Factor in that Kenny Britt is coming off a broken rib (but will play) and all those plays Locker could make with his legs Fitz won’t be able to make and will be solely relying on his arm.  I just have a feeling on this one, especially in PPR, as Wright already has a solid 30 targets in 4 weeks and is off three straight double-digit PPR weeks.

LeGarrette Blount (6.4%, 20%) I’m not usually one to buy into the hot waiver wire guy that suddenly is in the fantasy starting conversation, but I’m putting it in my pipe and smoking it this week.  With Stevan Ridley officially ruled out (and, let’s be honest, Ridley owners are probably happy about that) and Brandon Bolden a gimpy questionable (had to leave Sunday Night Football last week for a bit getting hit on that knee again), all signs point to the Pats offense going Blount, Blount, Pass against the Bengals.  I think he indeed gets solid work, the Pats get enough offense to move the ball, and Blount is the only healthy runner.

Eddie Lacy (62.7%, 53%) Breaking my usual parameters and picking a pretty big-name guy, I decided to go with one no-brainer start because there’s absolutely no scenario where Lacy shouldn’t be in your starting line-up.  Now, given a lot of the leagues that ESPN and Yahoo sample for their figures are probably dead leagues/have dead owners (well, not literally I hope), there’s probably people forgetting how good Lacy is going to be the rest of the way.  He looked down-right fantastic against the Niners to me (even though the stat line didn’t reflect it) and got hurt very early in week 2.  Missing a game and then a bye week might have people sleeping on him, and I luckily bought him low in a few leagues.  Great matchup against the Lions = welcome back Lacy.

Andre Ellington (1.0%, 6%) You’re digging deep here, like The Core deep, but I have a feeling on this one.  As much as it pains me to say this and possibly jynx it, I think my Panthers get up big in this one and the Cardinals abandon Rashard Mendenhall and the through-the-tackles run game (the Panthers D-Line and Luke Kuechly is as real as it gets up the middle) and go to swings and Palmer check downs to the more explosive Ellington.  I don’t see any way the Cardinals front gets push on our front 7.  Ellington has 13 targets in the past two weeks and I think gets an expanded role.  A nice deep PPR flyer – I’m actually playing him over Ryan Mathews this week (see below) where my options are slimmer than the Bills receiving corps we saw in the 4th quarter on Thursday.

Dallas Clark (2.3%, 5%) I’m going deep again; I think Dallas Clark is an overlooked fantasy asset in deeper leagues this week.  After that big 12-target opener and going 7 for 87, he disappeared against the Browns, then 4-46 and 4-34 the past two weeks.  I give you a brief recap because lost in the noise of the past two weeks is 16 targets, so throwing out the grinder against the Browns, he has 28 targets in the other three games.  Then we get to the matchup where Miami has given up THE MOST points to opposing tight ends.  All is ripe for a nice game a bit off the radar.

SON OF A BENCH

Andrew Luck (37.5%, 41%) Lost in the whole “Luck vs. Russell Wilson” debate in Sunday’s epic throw down is how good Wilson’s defense is behind him.  Then again, the Colts D has looked legit too.  So much good defense!  Ugh – low scoring.  I could see this being a lot slower than fantasy owners of Colts/Seahawks would hope for.  I’d go with deeper options at QB.

Chris Johnson (92.5%, 77%) It’s tough to bench a big-name guy like Johnson, and for all the flack he got last year and thus far this year, in the right matchups he can still shine.  Too bad for CJNoK, this isn’t a good matchup.  The Chiefs come into town giving up the third fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs and I think that trend continues.  Only a bench in 10-teamers or 12-teamers with a stacked bench, but there should be a lot more scenarios where you let him ride the pine than the % numbers indicate.

Ryan Mathews (30.7%, 46%) A lot of owners have jumped ship, but Mathews is still started in way too many leagues.  As mentioned above, I’m rolling out Ellington ahead of him in the 14-team Spadora on Sports League this week (if you live in the northeast, check your sports radio listing for my fantasy segment at 10:40 AM on Saturdays!) where my team is one of the biggest shockers to be 2-2 this side of the Jets.  Mathews’ has a bum hammy, who knows if it could flare up with an oddly timed 11:35 kickoff with the Oakland A’s going all Moneyball again, it’s just too big a question mark and too low of an upside for me to want to play him.

Dwayne Bowe (45.7%, 66%) I’m going double or nothing on this one baby!  As mentioned above in last week’s recap, Bowe had another Turd Ferguson of a game until a meaningless touchdown late in a blowout win salvaged his day.  Damn you, fantasy gods!  The Titans actually haven’t given up a WR TD in the past two weeks and give up the 8th-least fantasy points to opposing wide outs.  I think it’s another clunker for him.

Vernon Davis (80.4%, 70%) I might be crazy – but I think the 49ers blow out the Texans in this one for some reason.  Just a gut feeling.  And with VD with a bad hammy, I don’t think the Niners let him overextend himself late.  It doesn’t help he only had 2 for 18 last week (sure, one was a TD, but yeah) and Houston gives up the third least fantasy points to opposing TEs.  I’d go with deeper options this week if you can manage having two TEs on your roster, with guys like Charles Clay or Dallas Clark.

If you have any last second decisions, shoot some comments below or tweet me @jbgilpin – and remember I’m going to be a little slower getting to them but I’ll get to everything well before kickoff!   Good luck in week 5!

    I just wanna see how Stacy does cause he was ranked the number one prospect by a analyst on Rotoworld and Yahoo wrote good things. At least give him a week. No?? Do you think Austin Collie is a good pickup?? I just left this message on your old post. Lol

      @Frank White: No prob – yeah you’re fine holding him if you believe. And no on Collie.

        @JB Gilpin: Collie isn’t active this week. A 99% no officially is 100% no.

    Wow I just read this post. Good Job!! I had that question about my flex and I wanted to go Pierre Thomas cause the high Projections and you said Chris Givens. I never told you I have Ellington. You would really go for Ellington?? Also, Everybody keeps telling me to drop Givens cause he hasn’t done Ish. You really have faith in hin??

    • JB Gilpin

      @Frank White: Thanks! Still would go Givens. Have a feeling in this game they get him going vs. bad D.

  4. Mike says:
    (link)

    I have Powell and Knowshon. Either one worth playing over Chris Johnson? It’s PPR, so my instinct is to get Powell in there. Powell’s OK rushing + a handful of receptions feels like it’ll be > Johnson’s rushing.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Yeah I like both more. Agree it’s Powell.

  5. Burt Macklin says:

    Is Terrelle Pryor (vs SD) worth a start over Andrew Luck?

      @Burt Macklin: You know, I looked at that one when I was making my picks as a decision and it’s razor close. Just not a huge Pryor fan. Think I stick with Luck there, but coin flip.

    Rivers or Brady?
    Also, PPR: Witten or Julius Thomas and Broyles or Keenan Allen (yikes, i know)

      @drew: Still trusting Brady more. Thomas and Broyles. (haha)

    Is Wright a good gamble over Edelman this week? Thunderstorms and flash flooding predicted for the Pats game.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pacochu: Yeah I buy that as a gamble. Although Edelman is the guy to get a few yards when you can, and if the rain is tough, he could put up a line like that Jets game. In PPR, I think you stick with Edelman.

  8. de nachos says:

    You make a passionate sale, but if I picked up F-Basketball along with Baseball and Football I think I might as well start writing up the divorce papers. Do you like Ellington over Amendola in a FLEX PPR? Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @de nachos: Haha – Totally understand man. Although tell your wife imagine what I must go through writing for all three! Yeah I think I would go Ellington as I don’t trust Amendola to stay productive a whole game.

    • the imp says:
      (link)

      @de nachos: JB may disagree, but I like Amendola vs. Ellington. ‘Dola only need 4 catches to match Ellington today and has upside from there.

    Kenbrell Thompkins or Justin Blackmon as a WR 3?

    PPR league

    Team 1
    need 2 RB and 2 flex out of this group:
    Gio-B
    MJD
    Ellington
    D Wilson
    Edelman
    Currently, I have Ellington as the odd man out, swap him for anyone?

    Team 2
    Need 2 RB and 2 flex out of this group:
    Knowshon
    MJD
    J Bell
    Jennings
    Hartline
    Amendola
    Edelman
    Currently have Bell, Jennings, & Edelman on the bench. Thinking about getting Bell or Jennings in over MJD, and playing Edelman over Hartline to hedge my bets with NE WRs. Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @eltoo: Agree, leave out Ellington. 2 – Like Edelman over HArtline in PPR. Keeping in MGD.

    I guess this is kind of like one of those catcher questions in baseball where I need advice on who sucks the least….
    Getting killed by the BYE pun intended and trying to win despite the fact that my opponent has all his studs available. Cameron screwed me on Thurs with on 6 pts and now I’m only projected to get 115, opponent projection 135 and owns Cam, Forte, Demarco, Calvin…so I’m in a hole.

    PPR 1 pt per rec.

    RB1: Lacy
    R2: Ellington/Stacy
    WR: Demarius
    WR: Andre
    Flex: Tompkins

    My thinking is to have a chance to win this week I need the guy with the best shot to go off for 20 plus pts.. Not just get by with 10pts… Ellington should catch a few passes, is pretty dynamic, and seems to have a growing niche in the offense, but doesnt start. Stacy is now starting, but is an unknown , seems to be kind of a plodder, and not sure about pass catching role. Appreciate the input.

    No one factoring in Jonathan Franklin against the Lions? He’s looked way better than Lacy ever has so far, against a great run D as well, so the Niners excuse shouldn’t fly here seeing as how they’ve shown they aren’t the beast D they were in past years. I think the carries are more split than people think because of Franklins pass catching skills, and I believe he’s more productive than Lacy with his touches. Dude just looked too good for them to ignore him and not give him another shot.

      @Psychedelic: Um – nah. First off, Lacy has only played vs. the Niners. And I though looked great. Just because the Bengals are playing well doesn’t mean I like their D more overall. Lacy looked good in the pass game too. No way carries are split. Franklin looked really good on the game change fumble.

    14 TM standard, Who to start at Flex?

    Kenbrell Thompkins, Brandon Bolden, or Jason Snelling

    Am I over thinking the weather in Cincy today for the Pats game and just play Thompkins?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Schwab Stumped: Thompkins. Yeah I think it’s easy to overrate weather, but it is a concern.

    So confused right now. I handcuffed Amendola with Edelman, and now that Amendola is back with “limited snaps” this week, I feel like they are both at diminished value. My head says keep going with Edelman this week, but my gut says Brady and Amendola are going to connect, evem if he’s only on the field for 10-20 reps.

      @Greg: I wouldn’t want to oppose your gut! But I’m with your head on this one.

    Hey what’s up dude. I’m feeling towards the ravens D over the 49ers and I have nelson and torey smith as my starting wides, would you throw Andre johnson or martellus Bennett in the flex? Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Drew: Whats up man, thanks for stopping by! AJ in flex. I think I stick with the Niners, I mean that Schaub pick 6 vs. the Seahawks was just so foolish… Just need one of those for the Niners to get the most points.

    With amendola active would you start Mike Wallace over Edelman…..standard league.

      @SMLV1: Hmmm, standard league… I might roll dice on Wallace there.

      @Aero: Haha I hear ya. I don’t trust Amendola, and literally had Broyles/Blackmon decision in one league. I went Broyles and that’s my pick

      • Aero says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: yep, kinda the way I was leaning with Calvin out. Zeus help me, I’m starting Broyles and Hartline in a non-ppr. Hooray for bye-weeks!

          @Aero: Haha I think both will be decent – Zeus shall help indeed!

            @JB Gilpin: Yeah, my bye week desperation play of McGahee worked out pretty well on Thurs. Hopefully that roll can keep on going!

            Thanks again, and good luck with your teams!

          • Aero says:

            @JB Gilpin: Crud, shoulda gone Blackmon. 67 yard TD.

    JB, I have to ask: what in the HAY-EL is going on w/your Panthers man?! I expected 7 sacks yesterday but I thought it’d come from that great Panther front 7, not the mighty Cardinals on Cam. Starting to wonder if they’ve taken the place of the Cowboys as the most schizophrenic NFL team in the league. And now I hear they’re already putting together a coaching search while Rivera attempts to keep control of said schizo ship before yesterday’s game even happened? Better hope Cowher or Gruden gets bored with TV or they can roll the dice on Saban wanting to prove himself.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Clint (aka Pablo Death): Uggghhhhhhhh. They just always play to their competition – and just shows you how bad the Cardinals are. Saban would be awful. They better not go that route. But Rivera needs to go.
