There are certain things in life you can’t predict.  When the market will drop like it did in 2009, when the Middle East will find peace like it did in never, and when we will find out what Foxes say.  If you can solve this mystery, Unca Scooge, you might rewrite history or so Ducktales taught us long ago.  One thing that history has taught us and that we can predict is that as long as Peyton isn’t too old to throw the football, he’s gonna be a monster.  After spending most of the night having as many incompletions as he did touchdowns, Peyton Manning finished with 3 touchdowns on 32/37 passing for 374 passing yards and his first turnover of the season on a sack/fumble combo.  Sure, it wasn’t the night of ages like his 7 touchdowns to start the season but with this game in the books, Peyton is now on pace for 4496 passing yards, 64 passing touchdowns and ZERO int.  I put that in caps so you didn’t miss it.  Manning at 37 has the best receiving crew he’s ever had surrounding him his entire career and he’s taking full advantage at this point.  I ranked him in the Matt Ryan tier behind guys like Russell Wilson, RG3 and Cam Newton.  Don’t ask, I must’ve been reading too much into the read option.  The ‘he can’t keep this pace’ argument isn’t valid.  We know that and we’re not expecting it.  But could he pass for 50 TDs this year?  Very possible.  This is a Bronco team on a mission and Peyton is leading the charge.  In other 2013 Fantasy Football news…

Terrelle Pryor – So I compared Pryor to Tebow to start the year.  From what I saw, I wasn’t impressed with his arm and couldn’t get behind him long term or even throughout the year.  But the Broncos challenged him to throw tonight and he finished 19/28 for 281 passing yards and a TD.  He even put a few throws on his receivers that should’ve been caught that weren’t that were – dare I say it – impressive.  When you factor in his rushing ability (4 rushes for 36 tonight), I’m getting behind the guy Guru claimed as the last man in with no Pryors.  Don’t be the last guy in your leagues to have one as well.

Darren McFadden – Well, it was clear the Broncos wanted to prove Pryor couldn’t throw the ball with how they stuffed Run DMC at the line tonight (12 for 9 yards).  Fortunately for fantasy owners he rushed a TD and also threw for one, overtaking Matt Flynn on the QB depth chart.

Demaryius Thomas – After a 10/94 night, DT is on pace for 106 catches for 1637 yards and 10 touchdowns.  Why does it feel like I can get him for a guy like Reggie Wayne then?

Eric Decker - Oh hai, Decker.  I remember when I told people to buy you after a bad week one.  All he’s done since then is catch 17 passes for 220 total yards and a TD, with 8/133/1 of that coming tonight.  Now he needs to lay another dud so I don’t let this go to my head.  Don’t wanna be an Eric-gant fantasy expert.

Denarius Moore – Had 124 yards on 6 catches and a 73 yard TD.  Yes, this is the same guy that caught zero passes on 2 targets against the Jags.  I said I’m interested in Pryor, don’t get greedy and ask me who his main target is, too.

Wes Welker – Some weeks you’re the white meat, some weeks you’re the other white meat (7/84/1).  Either way, pork is pork and he’s going HAM.  I still don’t know what HAM means.  And yet I keep saying it…

Rod Streater – After 3 for 42 week 1, he put up 5 for 70 week 2.  Then he goes back to 3 for 42.  I’m not playing this numbers sequence game, teacher.

Julius Thomas – Another week, another touchdown (3/37/1).  The lone concern is what I mentioned to start the season when he was tied for third on the team for targets game 1.  He’s gone from 9 to 7 now to 4 for targets.  Not telling you to sell him, just realize his stats are very red zone heavy.  In other words, an orange Julius is delicious with our without whip cream, just realize the whip cream isn’t always in stock.

Knowshon Moreno – Well, he didn’t get to grind the game out like I thought he would.  Instead, they let Hillman get the goal line touch (9/66/1) and let Montee Ball fumble…again (11/61).  The only thing Moreno lead his team with reps with 13 total touches on the night.  Unfortunately, unless your league counts ball touching as a category, Moreno didn’t help you and if he did…well, you need another league.  Ball touching a stat?  Weird…not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    I also thought Pryor looked prettay, prettay good. Through a variety of scenarios, I could roll with either Pryor, Tannehill, Big Ben or Flacco as my QB2 from here on out. How would you rank those guys? We get 6 pts per pass TD, as well as a point for plays of 40+ yds.

            @Frank White: Dude, you’ve got to meet him halfway. Look at who’s available on waivers and suggest some names. When people are answering tons of questions, they can’t take the time to look through your entire roster and then suggest some names that might not even be relevant for your league anyway if they’re not available.

                      Dude stop talking down to me just cause your answers aren’t clear. I’m just asking for help. At first when I asked you said, yeah it makes sense, and you knew at that point I would have to use a waiver so that means your not paying attention. Also when you said, NO, I thought it was to the Bench guy question if he was taking over Richardson’s spot. Nobody talks to me the way you do and A lot of your readers know a lot more then me about the game so excuse me cause I’m amateur hour

                      So I’m supposed to assume you’d use a waiver on him. Not really. You don’t want me to talk down to you and yet you are wondering if you should pick up Tavaris Jackson. No one talks to you on here ‘like that’ because no one wants to give you the time of day. Wonder why you get ‘yes’, ‘no’ questions rather than fully explained responses? It’s because people gave up on responding to your drivel with something that resembles an intelligent thought because you don’t retain anything. You ask the same nonsensical bull over and over and don’t actually learn how to play the game. It’s one thing to be new to this, it’s another thing to be playing for a year and not start retaining something, anything in terms of valuation and wherewithal. Do whatever you want Frank, I don’t really care.

    I love listening to the weekly “he is DEFINITELY the guy you want in Denver’s backfield” analyses by various bloggers, present company excluded of course. Truth is, no one knows what’s in this coaching staff’s head as far as running the ball just like in New Orleans outside of Sproles. I’m so glad I avoided them like the plague on draft day and have maintained that stance despite Moreno/Hillman being on my waiver wire.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Yeah, Knowshon has a hold until Ball learns the pass pro. Most important thing in that offense: you can average 3.3 ypc but 1) don’t fumble and 2) don’t let Manning get blown up. Moreno has done his job but long term, Ball is the own. Getting him for peanuts would be the goal.

    Wow, that Foxes video is something else. That link alone made the post worthwhile, but the Welker blurb was even better.

    Everyone in my league complained during the preseason that nobody ever makes trades in the league, and yet nobody has responded to any of my lowball offers! What gives?

    I’m still trying to sell off my excess TEs (I have Graham, Cameron, and Cook), and now I’m also trying to sell high on Antonio Brown (WRs: Brown, Sanders, Shorts), especially with the Steelers bye coming up in Week 5.

    I figure if I offer enough trade offers, eventually one will be accepted, or at least countered with something reasonable. With that in mind, which of the following would you NOT offer:

    1) Cook for Givens
    2) Cook & Brown for Andre Johnson
    3) Cook & Brown for Victor Cruz
    4) Brown for Jordy Nelson
    5) Brown and Richardson for Calvin Johnson
    6) Brown and Richardson for Andre Johnson and Givens
    7) Brown for Nicks
    8) Brown and Richardson for Bryant
    9) Brown for Fitzgerald

        Non-PPR. Jimmy Graham is my starting TE. 8 team 2QB league.

  26. streaming Defenses this week:

    Must carry 2 DEF per league rules:

    I own
    Carolina (bye week)
    &
    Arizona (@ Tampa)

    I have my waiver set up to drop AZ for Kansas City (vs NYG) for that tasty matchup.

    The DEF waiver wire is thin due to that league rule, and since pickups cost 3 bucks, I’ll probably keep the Chiefs for the ROS.

    So, I guess my question boils down to:

    Carolina DEF or Arizona DEF for ROS?

    Morning Sky!
    3-0 and taking on the other undefeated team this week in 12 team PPR…appreciate your thoughts as I try to plan around a potential Cobb+Amendola bye week problem…Thanks for the help

    (1) Would you make a claim for Powell over MJD or Pierce?
    Rice’s injury makes Pierce ROS up in the air, but it would be great to get him a start over BUF since Arian draws SEA this week if Rice remains out.

    (2) If Rice and Amendola are out on Sunday, would you take a zero at WR or drop Pierce, RG3, Amendola, or MJD? Obviously, a trade is the better way out…

    (3) How good of an RB (MJD or Pierce) would you be willing to offer in trade for Cameron (Fleener is my current TE and the Cam owner won’t want a QB)?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Powell

      You can’t just drop those guys

      You’d have to offer MJD. Pierce has minimal value unless Rice gets hurt

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Thanks for the replies.
        One follow up, do you drop Pierce if Rice is probable for the fill in WR on Sunday?
        Ugly non contact injuries like Rice’s would have me very worried if I was the Rice owner, so it will be dangerous to drop Pierce until we’re very sure Rice is back.

    • Sky

    Bryce Brown
    Knile Davis

    TE’s- Gronk and Pettigrew

    What RBs, WRs should I play? Is Gronk going to play this week? or should I drop Pettigrew for a better TE? Zach Miller, Garret Graham, Kellen Winslow, Joseph Fauria, and Brent Celek are some available TEs. Thanks!

        I haven’t looked at matchups. For now, I’ll say CJ2K, CJ, Moreno

        WRs – Stevie, Gordon, Brown

        TE – drop Pettigrew for the other RB and wait to see if Gronk is ready to go. If he’s not, then drop that RB for Fauria for some RZ upside. Pettigrew’s just not very good.

      @BrewFreeorDie: Not much you can do but deal with injuries when they hit. Hopefully Bell comes back soon and performs so you don’t have to start PT. If you can sell high on Kenbrell, I’d do it. If it’s not a keeper, you should probably be looking to bulk up your bench and not sit on Harvin and Vereen. I’d make a choice on who I want. Personally, I’d keep Harvin of the two.

        Also should I drop Kenbrell for Broyles its .5 PPR I feel like Kenbrell still has some value in my league and he’ll definitely get scooped up quickly.

      @Oppo Taco: I would take the Wilson for Moreno deal all day long and if you are covered and just stashing hand cuffs would keep Brown.

    Worth using #1 waiver claim in 12 team 0.5PPR on any of the following: Bolden, Vereen, Pead, Franklin (Lacy owner), Broyles, Avery, Washington, S Moss?

    None would crack my starting lineup even during bye weeks unless I sustain multiple injuries. More just for depth. Will be dropping Ivory and/or Eli.

    Hey Sky. Couple questions my man.

    League 1: 12 man. 0.5 PPR
    I’m 0-3 right now, but 8/12 make the playoffs, so not sure if I should panick and make some desperation moves yet.

    QB: Eli and Manuel
    WR: Cruz, DBryant, Tavon Austin, Kenbrell Thompkins, DHB
    RB: TRich, Joique Bell, Knowshon Moreno, DRich, Lamar Miller, Shane Vereen
    TE: Coby Fleener, Gronk

    On the wire: SHill. Nate Washington. Jason Snelling. Do I drop DHB for any of these guys?

    My QB situation: Do I start EJ Manuel from here on out and hang onto Eli until he’s decent again? Locker, Tannehill, Geno Smith, Flacco, Hoyer are all on waivers. Do I drop Eli for one of them or start looking for trades? The two QBs I might be able to trade for are Kaep/Wilson, though there is probably a high price.

    League 2: 10 man. Standard scoring
    QB: Eli and Romo
    WR: Pierre Garcon, Eric Decker, Amendola/Edelman, DeAndre Hopkins
    RB: CJ Spiller, Joique Bell, David Wilson, Knowshon Moreno, Giovani Bernard
    TE: Graham

    On the wire: Bilal Powell. Mike Williams. Stephen Hill.
    Drop Eli and take these guys in which order? Powel > Williams > Hill? Drop David Wilson or hang on?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Josh: Drop DHB for Snelling. Any trades you make would be from behind the 8-ball. I’d look to stream QBs in favorable matchups in your league. Like Tannehill over Manuel overall if you’re looking to make a ROS move.

      You don’t really have the guys to drop for Powell unless you wanna give up on Moreno at this stage. I would not drop Wilson.

      • Josh says:
        (link)

        Man, you make the wait for a reply worth it. Thanks Sky.

        I’m a use a flier, not my #1 waiver to try and grab Snelling.

        So for streaming QBs.. let me pick your brain on Tannehill. His offensive line is absolutely terrible and on the whole, the team is getting outgained on yardage, game in, game out, 50-100 yards a game. The fact contributing to their great offense is that 80-90% in the red zone. That just doesn’t seem consistent to me and makes him very TD reliant. He’s fumbling the ball left and right. What makes him a better QB than Manuel, or even Flacco?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          Ha, thanks!

          Once the Dolphins start letting him scramble more – he started running more towards the end of the year and was very effective – that’ll keep defenses honest. And I also like his weapons. Hartline is very underrated and Clay has been a decent fill in for Keller. Their RBs are good as well. Flacco doesn’t have the tools he had last year without Pitta/Boldin. His current pace is about 4,000/16/11…not that enticing when you consider his career track record. Manuel is a wildcard. Rookie QBs can falter and he’s also sitting at 25th overall in yards per attempt. Not something that’s gonna get you to the redzone very often if you’re not gaining much yardage. Meanwhile, Tannehill is in the top 10 of that category this year. The offensive line is definitely a worry but moving forward, I like that he’s played a year and has a good set of players surrounding him. It’s why he wins out for me.

          • Josh says:
            (link)

      @pakestwo: 1) I like Rice for what he is this year: a mid to low-tier RB1. Depends what the other owner thinks of him, though.

    I’m not trying to start an argument.. I know enough about all of this. It’s just I showed you my team and I had questions on who’s some guys out there this week that are good pickups.. I know you don’t know if they’re available in my league but I’ll weed out the guys you tell me cause all I need is a clue. Another reason is that you put the buy sell list Tommorrow and that’s to late in my league. I just was asking for an early preview if you could. I rush and don’t read what I wrote before I send and that’s my fault which I will fix but Cmon Your turning my basic question into a wise answer and it’s not my fault. If you can help me out I’d really appreciate it

              @Frank White: Look here Frank, Cram is just Cram, if you don’t like his response then ignore him, if you don’t like Sky then don’t ask him. You said you like JB and Tehol, who doesn’t, so maybe you should post on their articles for a minute. I didn’t like Cram at first either and now I’m OK with him. On the baseball side he has given some solid advice and added to the conversation. Like I explained to you in my article, you need to ask concise and thought out questions to get the best answers.

                @J-FOH: Better yet! When Sky clearly says “No” or clearly says “Yes”, get a freakin’ clue and interpret that “No” means “No”!

                A good rule to follow if a girl tells you “No” the first time. Otherwise, you’ll be getting your fudge packed in jail, bro.

    Sky,

    Thanks for the article and feedback hopefully! 10 team standard league, I was offered a trade of Roddy White and Greg Olsen for Gio Bernard and Julian Edelman. I have no TE, having gone through Sudfeld, Celek, and Fleener in consecutive weeks totalling me one point in three weeks.I’m picking up Heath Miller to play this week regardless of making the trade due to Olsen on bye and Minnesota being bad vs TE. Other options are keeping Fleener or picking up Kyle Rudolph, but I dislike the extreme boom or bust guys. I like the idea of buying on Roddy right now to hold on to, I just hate trading a good RB. My backs outside of Bernard are AD, Wilson, Lacy, and McGahee. Leaning towards it due to the TE need, White’s late season health, the only question is will Wilson and Lacy be ok enough at RB2? Thanks for reading and keep up the great work!

    • Bizzle says:
      (link)

      @Bizzle: Sorry, current WR’s are Marshall, Garcon, Nicks, Jennings, Edelman. Have RG3 and Romo at QB, will try to move Nicks and possibly RG for another back.

      • Sky

        Sky says:

        @Bizzle: I think you should hang on to Gio-B there; I don’t make trades predicated on another trade that I can’t verify will happen. And thanks for the kind words!

    Is chiefs defense legit? Looking at their schedule, they look like the can continue to dominate.

    Hey Sky,
    12 team PPR, 2 flex (WR/RB WR/TE)
    Im looking to deal VIck and Steve Smith for an upgrade flex. I think I prefer targeting a WR as I should get one that provides more points then if I get a RB. What WRs do you think I should target that are enough to get back for both VIck and Smith?

    Thanks

    Is demarco Murray a big upgrade over Eddie lacy?
    Looking to package lacy with Julius Thomas for an upgrade
    Thanks

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Tim: When DeMarco is healthy, he’s a high end RB2. Think he’s an upgrade for the simple fact he’s the man in Dallas. Don’t know if we can say the same about Lacy.

  58. Tim says:
    (link)

    Or something like Julius Thomas and josh Gordon for Jordy Nelson??
    I have Gronk and Cameron………have to do something soon…

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Tim: Murray, if healthy, is an upgrade over Lacey. I think Gordon and Nelson will be a push

  59. Richie says:
    (link)

    Hey Sky,

    I just got offered Cam Newton and Owen Daniels for my Russell Wilson and Julius Thomas. I already have Jordan Cameron. I have to take this trade right?

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Richie: Yes

  60. exactly says:
    (link)

    Hey J-Foh/Sky:

    I got semi-countered with:

    Bryant, D Wilson and Woodhead for Garcon, MJD and Richardson? Too much risk dropping from Garcon to James Jones? or still in my favor?

  61. FillyP says:
    (link)

    Sup Sky? What do you think about moving CJ2K for Welker? My WR situation has got even more desperate.. Burleson’s pizza accident and Nelson on a BYE forces me to start Roddy “Decoy” White this week unless I make a move. I’ve also got Murray (who has a lot more value right now) and D.Rich/Mendy who probably won’t return much.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @FillyP: So CJ2K and Murray are your weekly starters at this stage, correct? If you’re doing this to cover a buy for a week and it forces you to start D.Rich or Mendy weekly as your RB2, I’d be very hesitant to do that.

  62. Tim says:
    (link)

    Romo or Kaepernick ROS??

    • J-FOH says:

      @Tim: Kaep, only because of the rushing TD’s

    Hello,

    I stream my DEF every week and looking for advice on a few…

    1. Ind @Jax…yahoo projection 10.78
    2. Ten vs NYJ…yahoo projection 10.49
    3. NYG @ KC…yahoo projection 9.89
    4. Min vs Pit…yahoo projection 9.24
    5. NYJ @ Ten…yahoo projection 8.82
    6. Was @ Oak…yahoo projection 8.79
    7. Cle vs Cin…yahoo projection 8.72
    8. Stl vs SF…yahoo projection 8.03

    Was thinking the Colts, but last week I picked Yahoo’s highest projected team in the Chargers and I got burned pretty bad. I’m a little more confident with Colts defending Jax, but wanted your opinion this time.

    thanks!!

    • Dingbat says:
      (link)

      @Willy: I wouldn’t put much stock in the Yahoo projections. At this early stage, it’s difficult to tell which defenses are solid, because so much of their performance is skewed by which opponents they’ve faced. Football Outsiders has a good system for evaluating team defenses in a way that tries to get at context-neutral ratings: http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamdef

      It hasn’t been updated for week 3 yet, but they like NYJ and TEN of the teams you listed. Is KC available in your league? Yahoo projections hate them for Week 4, but they’re the highest-scoring DST so far this year and they’re up against the most generous team for opposing Defenses (NYG).

      • Willy says:
        (link)

        @Dingbat: Thank you for your opinion… I checked out the link and think it will be very helpful. KC is definately available. When I did my search on Yahoo initially I did it based on projections and KC didn’t even show up on the first page! Sounds like a dream match up! I will be adding them and am confident that I will win the waiver claim. thanks again man! Cheers and good luck for week 4!

        • Dingbat says:
          (link)

          @Willy: Nice! By the way, check out Yahoo’s projections for KC this week. Looks like they adjusted their numbers a bit!

      • J-FOH says:
        (link)

        @Dingbat: nice link, and you’re right…. good call!

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @Willy: Ten, but wait for Sky’s ranks tomorrow

  64. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    this week only if I can’t get KC def to keep (likely keep anyway) does this rank for week sound about right
    IND vs JAX
    TEN vs NYJ
    NYJ @TEN?

    2. this week only rodgers fill in. i’m thinking if pryor is healthy he’s the best, followed by Big Ben (MIN)/smith @TEN/smith vs NYG/tannehill @NO. If i’m right about pryor being the best, should I just grab him immediately and adjust later if he doesn’t play (can likely pick up big ben later, newton owner also has vick). Only 2 byes this week.

    • J-FOH says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: Jets are super solid and so is Ten, The thing I hate about their matchup is both defenses may be on the field a lot and get tired. Indy handled the Niners well and Jax might have trouble beating Alabama

      I like Pryor, he has looked solid and will be someone others will want for their bye weeks later. After you play him you may want to hold and play keep away if thats possible

    10 team .5 pt PPR. Offered David Wilson + Dez for my Al Morris. Make the move?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Dez alone is a great value there. I’d take it.

  66. Velocity_X says:
    (link)

    Sky,

    The Texans DST has been very disappointing so far. With tough matchups coming up (Seahawks & 49ers), should I drop them for KC, or stick with them?

    Alternatively, I could keep the Texans and pick up KC by dropping someone else (Michael Bush). This has been the weakest part of my team thus far and I am conflicted. Thanks for the help.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Yeah it’s not all them but I hear ya. Can drop for KC

  67. Jon says:
    (link)

    Jhonathan Franklin, Jason Snelling, Da’Rel Scott, Isaiah Pead, Brandon Bolden, Zach Miller or Charles Clay over James Starks, Marcel Reese, Chris Ivory, Pierre Thomas or Coby Fleener?

    I could use help this week especially at RB… Right now Thomas is starting for me because of the SJax injury and because my RBs suck

    Non-PPR, by the way

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Snelling short term, Bolden long term so: Snelling/Bolden…Pead/Franklin………………….Scott. Don’t see a reason for the TEs in this scenario. Just keep Fleener, he’s the starting TE for a very good passing team.

  68. the imp says:

    Would you object to a trade in your PPR league of Jacquizz + Wallace for VDavis + Wilson? I see the receivers as fair, but the Wilson sweetner is quite a bit sweeter than Jacquizz (who should be on the waiver wire in my league)?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      I assume Wilson is David Wilson? Rodgers probably has more fantasy points than him at this point. It’s a fair trade for now, will be pretty lopsided later.

      • the imp says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Yeah, looked real good for the DWilson side to me…but I hear you and won’t veto. Thanks.

  69. the imp says:
    (link)

    One more, same team involved…close again but still in favor of one team in my opinion.
    Is this a fair trade?
    CJ?K + Olsen for Romo + Bell
    I guess if you believe in Bell it is close? The guy who gets Romo has Schaub right now.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Which Bell?

            @Sky: Thanks alot for the help with both of these. I suck at evaluating trades, so I wanted to make sure I had an unbiased perspective.

    Hey Sky+,

    Just wanted to give you made props and wanted to show case my many thanks for you answering so many of people’s questions (mine included). Out of all the fantasy sites I go to, the Razzball crew has been amazingly helpful and quick about answering questions.

    Seriously, how do you manage to fit all that time to answer our noob questions? 200+ comments on average. :) Thanks again!

    Also, on a random note: How did Blake Griffin know that Cameron would be the greatest TE on the planet?

      Wow, thanks Scott. That really means a lot to me. I’ll be sure to pass along the good vibes to our other writers as well. I find not sleeping helps me manage the time the best.

      Haha, damn Grif! Good call. Seriously, Cleveland has some interesting things going on in the passing game with Gordon and Cameron right now.
