Granted, there are many times when the lede’s topic is about the Sunday Night Football game, but sometimes I like to shake things up a bit. If only because there some really annoying things about it, ranging from Cris Collinsworth not taking a vacation in Syria, to the lazy, league approved narratives for everything, all the way to being reminded that NBC’s dramas are still being made. So sometimes, I just need a breather, ya know? And plus, if there’s an opportunity to make fun of the a Jeff Fisher led team, you know I’m going to take it, no questions asked. If you’re new to the site, I’ll give you a brief synopsis of my own personal feelings towards Fisher. You know how the words “winless” and “undefeated” exist? There should be a word for “being two games under .500”, and I think that word should be: JeffFisher. Here, let’s put it in a sentence: “People keep saying that Todd Gurley is regressing to the JeffFisher, but I really just think it’s because the offense is sh*t.” And now we have the first career game from Jared Goff, and it looked about as bad as we were expecting. And I gotta tell you, I lived in Los Angeles for almost five years… this is not the best way to grow a fan base. Not only is Fisher challenging the patience of Rams fans, but also men’s hair fashions. And also my ability to come up with a third thing, but I think you get the point…

 

Jay Ajayi16 CAR, 77 YDS, 4.8 AVG, 36 LONG and 3 REC, 7 YDS, 2.3 AVG, 8 LONG, 4 TGTS. Let the regression begin!

Cole Beasley5 REC, 59 YDS, 11.8 AVG, 1 TD, 17 LONG, 6 TGTS. Cole Beasley annoys me, mostly because generic football fans will call him ‘Beastly’ and think they’re being super clever and creative. It’s like on OkCupid where you have to list the six things you can’t live without, and some dork types in: oxygen. Let me guess, you’re down to earth and hate drama too!

Odell Beckham Jr.5 REC, 46 YDS, 9.2 AVG, 20 LONG, 7 TGTS. You might think they’d get the best wide receiver more than seven targets, but you’d be wrong. CLASSIC Ben McAdoodoo misdirection here.

Tom Brady24/40, 280 YDS, 7.0 AVG, 4 TD, 114.6 RTG and 4 CAR, 12 YDS. Who needs defense, right?

Blake Bortles22/35, 202 YDS, 5.8 AVG, 2 TD, 2 INT, 73.8 RTG and 1 CAR, 3 YDS. Blake Bortles as a quarterback: Daddy Drinks Because He Loves You!

Dez Bryant6 REC, 80 YDS, 13.3 AVG, 2 TD, 26 LONG, 8 TGTS. Honestly, Dak should have been throwing more to Dez earlier. They have so much in common, they both have three letter names starting with the letter “D”. I mean, what else is there?

Isaiah Crowell – 8 CAR, 10 YDS, 1.3 AVG, 6 LONG and 5 REC, 13 YDS, 2.6 AVG, 9 LONG, 5 TGTS. They should just spot the Browns 20 points every game at this point.

Jay Cutler17/30, 252 YDS, 8.4 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 81.5 RTG and 1 CAR, 3 YDS. Don’t worry, they’ll start winning games when they know for sure that they have a high round draft pick secure. I’m thinking in two weeks is when they find a way to win four straight games.

Andy Dalton24/43, 207 YDS, 4.8 AVG, 1 TD, 2 INT, 57.0 RTG and 4 CAR, 10 YDS, 1 TD. You are the worst. Ginger. Ever.

Ezekiel Elliott – 25 CAR, 97 YDS, 3.9 AVG, 14 LONG and 4 REC, 30 YDS, 7.5 AVG, 17 LONG, 5 TGTS. Elliott imposing his will on the other team, as usual. Though, he better be careful; you never go full Roethlisberger…

Zach Ertz – 6 REC, 35 YDS, 5.8 AVG, 1 TD, 11 LONG, 11 TGTS. Boy, that touchdown really… Ertz the Seahawks.

Jared Goff – 17/31, 134 YDS, 4.3 AVG, 65.8 RTG and 4 CAR, 11 YDS. So, are the Rams going to finish above .500 this year? Oh, maybe I confused you. I mean 500 yards.

A.J. Green1 TGTS. RIP 2016 Cincinnati Bengals, Time of death: 11/20/2016; When Green’s hamstring imploded. Tyler Boyd (6 REC, 54 YDS, 9.0 AVG, 1 TD, 13 LONG, 8 TGTS) and Brandon LaFell (4 REC, 32 YDS, 8.0 AVG, 16 LONG, 9 TGTS), step right up and continue the fine tradition of the Bengals offense letting us all down. So, I’m going with just short pulls of straight vodka. This can’t go wrong, right?

Chad Henne1 CAR, -2 YDS. I have this wonderful little dream where a random Jacksonville resident goes into a tattoo parlor and asks for a henna tattoo and they give him a Chad Henne tattoo instead.

Cody Kessler7/14, 128 YDS, 9.1 AVG, 1 INT, 52.1 RTG and 1 CAR, 2 YDS. I always feels bad for whatever poor college kids get drafted to the Browns

Mike James1 CAR, 9 YDS. I’m Mike James, B*TCH!

Dion Lewis5 CAR, 23 YDS, 4.6 AVG, 12 LONG and 3 REC, 26 YDS, 8.7 AVG, 9 LONG, 5 TGTS. “Oh, you have Lewis on your fantasy team? Haha, here’s a touchdown James…” – Bill Belichick, probably.

Eli Manning21/36, 227 YDS, 6.3 AVG, 2 TD, 95.5 RTG and 4 CAR, 1 YDS. What a perfect matchup for Manning to go against Jay Cutler. Two equally frustrating, turnover-prone quarterbacks that everyone treats completely different because one guy has two Super Bowl rings. Don’t you see everyone? Manning doesn’t suck as much because he’s trying to win!

Jerick McKinnon16 CAR, 44 YDS, 2.8 AVG, 12 LONG and 1 REC, -3 YDS, 1 TGTS. Alexa, find me a running back that doesn’t suck.

Carson Palmer – 20/38, 198 YDS, 5.2 AVG, 2 TD, 2 INT, 63.3 RTG and 1 CAR, 11 YDS. Seriously? You. Have. David. F*cking. Johnson.

Dak Prescott27/36, 301 YDS, 8.4 AVG, 3 TD, 127.2 RTG and 2 CAR, 16 YDS. Were Cowboys fans chanting “Romo” early in the game, or were the Dallas fans just reacting to a minority drinking Evian water and I just misheard them? Honestly, I would love it if Tony Romo just said, “Ef it, I want to remember my name in ten years.”, but the way I’m seeing it, Jerry keeps the Romo’clock at three minutes to midnight at all times just in case.

Aaron Rodgers26/41, 351 YDS, 8.6 AVG, 3 TD, 115.0 RTG and 3 CAR, 33 YDS. “Hey coach, what are my contract options concerning a trade?” – Aaron Rodgers.

Ben Roethlisberger23/36, 167 YDS, 4.6 AVG, 74.7 RTG. Well, you dodged a bullet here (Plaxico, take notes…) if you ended up starting someone else, despite Ben having a matchup against a hapless Browns team that currently has a snap but don’t bend defense.

Sterling Shepard – 5 REC, 50 YDS, 10.0 AVG, 1 TD, 15 LONG, 11 TGTS. Shepard has a backward handstand in his repertoire apparently. Might come in handy the way Eli throws.

Alex Smith24/31, 261 YDS, 8.4 AVG, 1 TD, 1 ING, 99.0 RTG and 2 CAR, 10 YDS, 1 TD. This is why I keep insisting the Chiefs aren’t as good as everyone says they are.

capture

Steve Smith Sr.8 REC, 99 YDS, 12.4 AVG, 1 TD, 22 LONG, 9 TGTS. Congratulations to Steve Smith on becoming the 14th player in NFL history.

Darren Sproles2 CAR, 15 YDS and 1 REC, 6 YDS. “The Eagles running game: Your Marriage Was Already Sh*tty, Don’t Blame Us!”

James Starks9 CAR, 25 YDS, 2.8 AVG, 8 LONG and 5 REC, 46 YDS, 9.2 AVG, 1 TD, 31 LONG, 6 TGTS. One day, Starks will learn how to run forward.

Ryan Tannehill – 24/34, 172 YDS, 5.1 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 89.3 RTG and 2 CAR, 19 YDS. Ryan Tannenhill has gone down in his career more than Jenna Jamison…

Tyrod Taylor19/27, 166 YDS, 6.1 AVG, 1 INT, 70.9 RTG and 9 CAR, 39 YDS, 4.3 AVG, 13 LONG. “So Coach Ryan, how do you feel about the win today?” “Honestly, I have had a case of the runs since I had Skyline Chili yesterday and I thought it was an omen for us to run the ball. Next week against the Jaguars, if I have a kidney stone, Tyrod is throwing it 70 times, I can promise you.”

Dwayne Washington13 CAR, 6 YDS, 0.5 AVG (lol), 4 LONG and 2 REC, 15 YDS, 7.5 AVG, 8 LONG, 2 TGTS. “The Lions running game: Not as bad as Jeff Dahmer!”

Terrence West8 CAR, 42 YDS, 5.3 AVG, 1 TD, 18 LONG and 1 REC, 11 YDS, 2 TGTS. Terrence “That’s how the West was won”.

 

Final Thought

2016_fails_way_too_big

The Manning family combined, has almost a hundred more touchdown passes over the last 50 years than the Bears. Just let that breathe for a minute…

    Terrence West is annoying the crap out of me.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Scott: a lot of people, trust me. That whole RB situation is a tease.

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @Scott: 50/50 split of time on field… I’m assuming that this will be the way it goes going forward. AKA – He’s not done annoying you.

  3. Scott says:
    (link)

    Yikes, Giovanni Bernard has a torn ACL. At the risk of sounding morbid, do you think Jeremy Hill gets more run, or will Cincy find other ways to frustrate his owners?

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @Scott: I think he is the full time first and second down back, but expect them to deploy someone else one third downs still. Bernard was getting more than just 3rd down snaps, so Hill gets a slight uptick, but I don’t see him being an every down back all of a sudden.

      If anything AJ Green going down means that they don’t have a true red zone threat outside of Eifert, so I expect them to run Hill more in the red zone.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott: my answer is yes.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott: the serious answer is probably. I loke Hill more now, as they’ll have to depend on their RB game even more than now with Green out. I still think he’ll be a two down back, but have more impact snaps.

  4. ashtray says:

    That is the best gif that I have ever seen. Where do you find these things?

    So I’m in a pretty good spot but the trade deadline has passed and I have the nice problem of too many decent RBs (can only start 3). If I need to make a move which RBs should be cut first:

    LeVeon Bell
    David Johnson
    Mark Ingram
    Rob Kelley
    Thomas Rawls
    Ryan Mathews

    The easy answer is Mathews but not sure who would be next out of Kelly, Rawls, and Ingram.

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: I don’t think it matters but if it’s PPR I’m thinking Kelley as Rawls is more likely to catch a pass or two. Mathews is the obvious first to go.

      Why drop them though? With that stable, I’m assuming another playoff team NEEDS one of those running backs, so I would hang on unless you desperately need another player.

      Bell, Johnson and Ingram? I wonder how you pulled that off considering they were expected to be drafted top 20?? is this an 8 team league?

      • ashtray says:
        (link)

        @CMUTimmah: Keeper league. I had Bell and then snagged Johnson as soon as he hit the scene last year with a #1 waiver claim. Traded my 5th pick for Ingram this year before I realized what I had with Rawls and Kelley. Wish I could have that one back.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: I’d try to hold, it’s nice having that depth, but Rawls and Mathews are probably the first to go here.

      And haha, yeah, I have no idea. I have a folder where I just save gifs from whenever I come across them, I’ve been wanting to use that for a while.

    Howdy!

    I can’t believe it’s already thanksgiving week, dang where did the time go? Lol!

    In my league it’s also trade deadline week, the deadline is on thanksgiving.

    It’s .5 ppr. Based on my roster are you looking to make any changes?

    QB matt Ryan (& on the bench I have dak Prescott who I added & started for Ryan’s bye)

    RB1 David Johnson
    RB2 Melvin Gordon

    WR1 Dez Bryant
    WR2 Baldwin
    WR3 moncrief

    Flex: Hopkins

    TE: I have CJ Fiedorowicz here i guess it depends how he fairs tonight vs OAK

    Bench: Jeremy hill, Sterling Shepard, Kyle Rudolph, Witten, Emmanuel sanders, amendola (who I’m dropping), Ellington (DJ cuff), farrow (Gordon cuff), Prescott.

    IR: Watkins
    IR: hogan

    I was thinking of maybe upgrading at TE with Olsen but he’s been up & down , however on the wire is jared cook he looked involved yesterday

    Also at this point regardless if Hopkins does well or not are you holding onto him or looking to move him?

    Thanks again!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: If there’s an upgrade at WR, I might try for it, but I think your team is pretty solid. Especially with Watkins saved up and Hill taking a bigger role. I’d hold on Hopkins there. And any time!

      • Bobby says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Thoughts of looking to package sanders + moncrief. If I do that which level WRs should I look at? Or what about a moncrief + Shepard?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Bobby: At this point in the season, not sure. If it’s not a keeper, probably not a huge value. You could see how the AJ Green owner is doing. Probably try to get his second best WR for those two, see if they are willing to fill some holes with those guys.

          • Bobby says:
            (link)

            @Jay:

            Nice thanks !

            • Bobby says:
              (link)

              @Bobby:

              It is a keeper league we can keep max two players rounds 1 & 2 are dedicated for keeper selections

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @Bobby: Interesting. You should be able to get a lot for Shepard in that format I think. Do you think the Green owner is willing to trade? If so, let me know his WRs. Maybe there’s something that could be built.

                • Bobby says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay:
                  That’s a possibility, his WRs are followed

                  Green, Jordy Nelson, Kelvin Benjamin, Jordan Matthews, Tyrell Williams, and Demaryius Thomas.

                  Here’s the rest of his team

                  His RBs Jon Stewart, Starks, Langford, Dixon, Paul Perkins, Rawls, Dion Lewis

                  At TE he has Eifert & his other TE is martellus bennett who is currently his flex

                  • Jay

                    Jay says:
                    (link)

                    @Bobby: Interesting… he may want to stand pat there, it’s enough depth.

                    I’d aim for guys who other owners don’t mind moving at this stage, but also aren’t too expensive. Maybe try for Edelman, or ARob. Tate is a nice buy low I think. But don’t feel forced, you have a good team.

                  • Bobby says:
                    (link)

                    @Bobby:

                    Option 2:

                    Another team who could use a WR is one who lost Alshon.

                    This owners WRs are diggs, garçon, Aiken, Tyreek hill, Sanu & maclin.

                    However this owner has two top TEs this this owner has Gronk & jimmy graham.

                    This owners RBs are Freeman, forte, c Mike, yeldon & McKinnon.

                    • Jay

                      Jay says:
                      (link)

                      @Bobby: Hmm, you could try Sanders and Moncrief for something like Graham and Tyreek. It makes some sense for both teams, but not sure how he values having two TEs…

                    • Bobby says:
                      (link)

                      @Bobby:

                      Edelman won’t move him it’s his fave player. Arob owner possibly his team has Brown Hilton, a rob, Pryor, crabtree

  6. Bobby says:
    (link)

    The Gronk / graham owner is a head scratcher when Gronk was healthy graham was always on the bench only time graham was started was this week & gronks bye he doesn’t use one at flex lol

      @Bobby: Yeah, I mean, it’s worth a shot to see what’s up.

    20 team PPR redraft, till the jeffrey suspension i seemed in good shape here (still quite possible to get top 6 and make playoffs though)
    QB rivers/foles (yeah so i might win this week anyway, thought with a.smith having 2 concussions called not concussions and foles doing well when in he was most likely to get time this week, used to have gabbert)
    RB (2) bell/kelley/howard/langford/du harris
    WR (3) s.smith/t.smith/jj nelson/jeffrey/m.lee
    TE (1) jimmer/l.green
    1 flex
    as you can see lately my WR is pretty bad or hurt. drop anybody (foles)for wilson (CHI)/brax miller/hunter (BUF)/tate (BUF)

      • Flowers misses his old glasses... he's ok tho says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yep, he’s pretty much the only reason i’m a good sized favorite for rest of this matchup, only have to fade 17.7 points from s.smith CB OAK, and he’s only had at most 9 pts once this whole year. hard to win with zero pts from yr QB slot. which of those WR would you add though.

        for a different league

        I was curios so I did the math:

        The Manning family has thrown for 965 TD (in 612 career games)

    Lucked out like no other & won by 3 points in my 10teamer behind Lat Murray, despite a brutal week…that keeps me in first place but the leaderboard is tight. I’m going to continue to shuffle my WRs this week but here is where I’m at;

    Week 11 potential starters; Marshall, D Adams, Snead
    Bench; T Benjamin, M Jones, K Britt, T Hill

    Only decent waiver options are Boyd & T Sharpe. Would you take a shot on both, dropping T Hill & Britt? I only have 34$ budget left but think I can snag these low end wideouts for $5 or less…

    Than for defense, I have Arizona but don’t like the matchup against NO. My debate is do I hold onto Az for future weeks/playoffs (not many appealing matchups) & drop one of my wideouts to carry 2 D…or just dump Az cause they are not putting up elite numbers & stream the rest of the way in shallow 10teamer? My options for this week are buffalo v Jax, NYG @ Cle, Pitt @ Indy (luck out) or Baltimore v Cincy?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Oh man, close one. I’d look at Boyd for Hill maybe. Yeah, I think I’d actually do that. And I’d maximize your roster by adding a second DST if you want matchup flexibility. Playoffs are all about creating redundancy on your team so you are prepared. I think you can do that here without risking too much.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: which defense are you looking to pickup & play this week out of my options above?

    Who to drop for Peterson…or hold? standard 10-teamer

    QB- Cam
    RB – Johnson, Freeman
    WR- Brown, Fitz, Matthews, Jeffery
    TE- Reed

    BN- Palmer, Hightower, Crowell, Ebron, D. Lewis

          @Chad Bowling: I would hold on Palmer there, but I would go Jennings over Crowell… they are pretty even for me right now, but I’ve always had a thing for Rashad.

    Yahoo 12-team Half-PPR (3WR,2RB,1TE, No-Flex)

    1) Currently rostering 3 TE’s: Bennett, Brate, Fiedorowicz. Think it’s ok to move on from Bennett given the schedule of the other two? I need to drop one and pick up a fourth RB.

    2) With Luck sitting, I have to chose between Taylor, Winston, Manning for Week 12. Who should I go with? Also, who would you hold ROS as Luck’s backup?? (I know you don’t like holding QB’s but two teams are carrying 5 each so streaming is not really an option)

    3) Currently rostering 3 RB’s: Bell, Ware, Ivory. If I drop a TE, who do I add? (Smallwood, Peterson, Asiata, McKinnon, Richard)

    As always, Thanks for the help!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MJP: 1 – Is this a keeper? If not, I’d rather hold on Bennett and drop Brate or Fiedorowicz. Probably Fiedorowicz. 2 – Hmm, right now, probably WInston, but be sure to check again when rankings come out. 3 – I would add Smallwood there maybe. Richard is close…

      • MJP says:

        @Jay:

        Non-keeper. Bennett always disappoints whenever I start him, but I’ll keep him and drop C.J.

    I feel like there’s a joke somewhere hidden in the fact that Ohio State has produced 2 QBs that have developed into 2 decent WRs in Pryor and Miller, yet the Browns can’t keep one QB healthy.

    Ok, Jay. I’m not a doctor or anything, but maybe you can explain this one to me:

    “Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (rib) has been diagnosed with a rib fracture, but he is expected to be ‘good’ for Week 12 as the injury is in a ‘safe area’, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Zach Berman.”

    If it’s in a safe area, how did it get fractured in the first place?!?

      @Scott: I… I don’t even know. This really hurts my head. I feel like even running would affect any rib, no matter if it’s in a safe area and not. Also, the ribs aren’t all spread out… I mean, they’re next to each other. How is one in the safe zone and not the others?

    Week 12.
    Choose 3 to start from : Derm. Thomas, Michael Thomas, Rishard Matthews, Jamison Crowder, Tyrell
    Williams, Travis Benjamin.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Jeff P: Right now, probably Crowder, DT, and Williams, but lets see how the status of Benjamin clarifies itself the next few days.

    Hey Jay,

    I’m on the edge here sitting at 9th, tied with 8th but hes got more points. Really need to win the next couple weeks. Playoffs start week 14.

    Which players do I start for week 12? 2 WR 2 RB 1 Flex
    Jordy Nelson, Jordan Matthews, Michael Thomas, Devante Parker, Corey Coleman
    EZ-E, Latavius Murray, Dion Lewis

    Currently have Jordy, Matthews, EZ-E, Latavius and Devante Parker starting.

    Hopefully picking up Smallwood and Boyd. Dropping SD Def and Matt Jones.

    ROS def is NE
    ROS TE is Ertz
    ROS QB is Wilson

      @m1chael: Ah, still a little bit of time. I think right now, you have the right idea. Double check my rankings tomorrow though.

      And your ROS options look good.

    tale bad luck (head banged, short week). league 1, 14 team PPR. 1 flex
    QB luck
    RB (2) both DEN guys, mccoy, both KC guys
    WR (3) parker, diggs, a.brown, woods, t.will (SD), inman, royal
    TE eifert
    1. i’m guessing bibbs is an easy drop to attempt smallwood, but are any of these also better own: morris/barner?
    2. who’s my drop for another QB: woods maybe, he’s out at least one week, maybe more, and maybe watkins back by the time he is
    3. for which QB this week (ranked by FP’s)
    bradford @ DET
    brock lobster vs SD
    flacco vs CIN
    this team is 10-1

    league 2. 12 team PPR. 1 flex. return yardage worth same as scrimmage (.1 per yard)
    QB luck
    RB (2) gurley/booker/lat murray/hill/d.lewis/dixon
    WR (2) s.smith/landry/aj green/sheppard/j.matthews
    TE eifert/ebron
    4. who’s my drop for a QB?
    5. who’s a drop for smallwood?
    6. drop anybody (same guy as in 5 or another) for any of: cunningham (return yard and handcuff value)/ty montgomery/garcon/sharpe/m.lee
    7. which QB is best this week? (i need to win in this league too)
    wentz vs GB and all the same as above
    ebron is a LOT better in case eifert gets hurt than the rest out there. can’t flex a TE.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: 1. Yeah, Smallwood over Bibbs for sure. I think probably Morris. The way your depth is setup, I’m okay dropping Woods and keeping Watkins. And right now, probably Bradford.

      On the second one, I think Ebron and Dixon are the drops there. Hmm, now that I read that Ebron note you made, makes the situation tough. There really aren’t any other obvious drops. I think drop Dixon for a QB and leave Smallwood alone here.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: ok,
        1. drop bibbs for one of smallwood or morris (that order) even as a booker owner
        2. i don’t have watkins, only woods, but guessing woods is the drop for the QB bradford
        7. guessing when i drop dixon for that QB wentz vs GB is better than that other list that bradford topped.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: 1 yeppers, 2, oh, I gotcha, misread that. And yeah, I think Woods is the drop there. 7 Yeah, I think so.

  18. Jim says:

    Which side do you like here in a PPR league?

    Allen Robinson for Dion Lewis and Jarvis Landry…

    Thanks a lot.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Jim: a-rob, serious risk on 2nd side. earlier in year this would probably have been a yes, even before lewis played.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jim: I think ARob still, unless your RB needs a lot of help. It’s pretty fair, to be honest.

  19. Kelly says:

    Is Ryan Mathews droppable in a 12 team PPR league?

    I’d place a bid on Gilislee and Boyd in his place. I dread owning Mathews.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Kelly: Yeah, I think so. For those names, it makes a lot of sense.

    attempting to smallwood (my way into long successful porn career)
    1. 12 team PPR, start only 2 RB
    RB l.bell/howard/kelley/thompson/d.lewis/d-will (PIT)
    WR (3) hopkins/cobb/hilton/t-will (SD)/marv jones
    TE jimmer
    drop anybody for any of smallwood/garcon/m.lee/lafell/meredith/sharpe. it seems i might be able to use some WR backup with hilton’s value being hit (hopefully only one week), marv jones being awful for a while. smallwood add would only be about taking value from opps. this team is 10-1 and doesn’t really need to win till week 14-16.
    2. for a different team in this same league (helping them out)
    RB t.west/stewart/CAP/starks/mccoy/gillislee
    WR a.brown/diggs/benjamin/tate/sanders
    IR abdullah
    same question as #1 with some others added in: smallwood/garcon/m.lee/lafell/meredith/sharpe/morris/henry/cunningham. benjamin has been hurt and not doing much before that, probably ends up being CAP for some amount of the RB’s and benjamin for one of the WR’s.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @For an Armenianless vacation come to Akron: For us all I’d say!

      I’m okay switching Thompson with Smallwood, but I don’t think he’s a huge need for you. I do like your depth at the moment, and the handcuffs you have going into playoffs. On the second team though, I’d do Smallwood over Gillislee.

      • For an Armenianless vacation come to Akron says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so you’d hold CAP over gillislee even as a mccoy and stewart owner? interesting. and remain on benjmain rather than those WR’s as well.

          • For an Armenianless vacation come to Akron says:
            (link)

            @Jay: shit, forgot, none of those WR over benjamin (SD). i should’ve specified which benjamin, as clearly the CAR is better than those.

                  (link)

                  @Jay: yeah, it’s why m.wilson isn’t close to an easy yes when in really deep leagues you have the question of him vs other deep league only types like guys beyond goodwin at BUF. last year i remember going into year owning m.wilson, now we’re down to barkley.

  22. Mantis Toboggan MD says:
    (link)

    for super flexes and 2 QB’s, both dynasties. barkley questions and others
    QB palmer/keenum/goff
    RB (2) coleman/hyde/booker/gurley/dixon/asiata
    WR (2) dez/aj green/cooks/parker/marv jones
    TE j.thomas/walker
    IR woodhead/hoyer
    1. guessing i should attempt to waiver barkley ahead of smallwood (dropping asiata in either case)
    2. assuming i get one of barkley/smallwood, drop anybody else for any of boyd/boldin/m.lee?
    3. hold my TE’s over cook/kendricks?

    2nd league. 2 QB PPR. 2 flexes
    QB rodgers/mccown/tyrod/osweiler
    RB (2) ingram/forte/mckinnon/mathews/ivory
    WR (3) jordy/edelman/britt/d-jax/treadwell
    TE (1) ertz/j.thomas
    IR allen/woodhead
    1. drop mccown for barkley?
    2. drop either of my TE’s for cook/fleener/kendricks?
    3. just say screw my QB #4 and grab one of these: woods/m.lee/e.rogers?

    • Mantis Toboggan MD says:

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: first league is a standard as well.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: Yeah, I would do that for Smallwood. I’d hold on those three still I think. And yeah, I like your TE combo as is.

      On the second league, yes on 1, I mean, why not? I still like your TE as is here too, and actually, thinking about it. I’m okay picking up Rogers just to see what happens.

      • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
        (link)

        @Jay: in the first league, since i’d need multiple injuries at this point to ever play asiata (RB #6) with coleman/hyde back, assuming i don’t get smallwood/barkley, what’s best order of boyd/m.lee/boldin. for this year i’d guess that is the right one. marv jones isn’t inspiring confidence for a while.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Mantis Toboggan MD: I like them in that order. Yeah, that Jones hyped died fast.

            (link)

            @Jay: just noticed boyd is out there too, him over rogers, dropping QB #4 (mccown)

  23. David says:

    Jay, mulling over a trade. It’s a dump trade in a 10-team keeper league, 2QB, PPR, FAAB league, very competitive. I’m 6-5 and buying. I believe I can compete in the playoffs without making this trade but I’m torn on the keeper implications. My current roster, perenthesis indicates current dollar value

    QB1 Cam (12)
    QB2 Ben (10)
    RB1 Zeke (41)
    RB2 Kelley (10)
    WR1 Julio (53)
    WR2 Cooper (55)
    WR3 Demaryius (34)
    TE Rudolph (10)
    Flex1 Kelvin (2)
    Flex2 Rishard (15)
    Bench: Shepard (21), Meredith (12), Thompson (20), Perkins (1), Morris (2), Powell (1), Cook (10), Wentz (5)

    The trade is Zeke, Kelvin, Perkins, Thompson for Brown (34/51), Blount (5), Martin (21), Sanders (18), Gates (10). Brown’s value goes up next year to 51.

    From my perspective this is a very good trade. I don’t think it takes me to the next level, by improving multiple facets of my team, however, it greatly improves my flex position while absorbing a slight hit to my RB’s. I’m going by more recent performance and comparing average scoring as well as making assumptions on what type of floor to expect for Kelley & Martin. In a vacuum, I wouldn’t be asking your opinion here, however, I need to consider for future implications (because I’m not confident this wins me the league) and I have reservations about Blount (w/ Lewis back) & Martin.

    I’m very interested in your thoughts on Blount/Martin/Kelley vs. Zeke/Kelley RB corps. Assuming in any week ongoing I’d be starting only 2 RB’s.

    Last point, typically in every matchup this year, if Ben and/or Cam shit the bed, I usually lose. My record is mostly attributed to the their play and the bye weeks configuration.
