On this week’s episode, we have everything. Existential crisis. Crisisee? Crisises? Zach (or!) Matt create their own hazmat suit and makes sure the sounds are loud enough for the world to hear throughout the entire show. Zach does an amazing Tehol impersonation. We had a Jim Rome AND PFT Commenter name drop and this time, we only spend 25 minutes trying to end the show. In fact, I added a bonus “behind the scenes” listen of how even when we do end the show, the show just. Doesn’t. End. Ever. However, even with all of this, we find time to talk about Allen Robinson, Doug Martin, Julio Jones, Jordan Reed, other Fantasy Football playoff news… and how in the world Jeff Fisher received an extension. Spoiler Alert: We couldn’t figure it out. Enjoy the show! Now, with more bonus goodbye time where we don’t say goodbye!

    status of Ingram getting worse by the day & im already down 6 – 10 as a result of my Ware choke job against his Kelce. If Ingram is going to get limited reps or out, plug in Watkins or Mitchell?

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Nick: Mitchell is a little risky, and Watkins should be a full go, so if Ingram is not 100%, I’d go Watkins

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Yeah, I’d do Watkins if Ingram looks bad. It’s something I’m thinking of now.

    RB-Demarco Murray
    RB- Isaiah Crowell

      @David: Keep it the way it is

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @David: I think you lock there. I’d like to squeeze in Doug Martin, but I think the lineup you have has a good mix of floor and ceiling.

  3. Jason Morgan says:

    Jarvis Landry, DeAndre Hopkins, Tyler Eifert, Jeremy Hill or Jamison Crowder?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Jason Morgan: Eifert has an outstanding matchup

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Jason Morgan: I like Hopkins there, but you could make a case for Crowder. Double check my updates though later tomorrow.

    Who would you grab as a handcuff for the playoffs just in case…

    Gillislee or Alfred Morris?

    thanks jay

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger:Morris. If Elliot goes down, he’ll be behind the greatest o line in the game

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: I’d go Morris there, I’m with Zach.

  5. Rice says:

    Thoughts on Julio this week? He’s a game time decision in the afternoon games. If he does play there is a concern he’s not at full strength and/or could be used as a decoy.

    I can replace him in the early game with Moncrief…. or…. I can wait to hear his availability in the afternoon games and replace him with Gabriel.

    I’m thinking, with Sanu already out and Julio unknown, Gabriel might be the best/safe play either way?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Rice: Julio will play

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Rice: Yeah, they have no choice but to put Julio out there. I don’t think we have a choice but to follow.

    In a hole with my Cooper and his Kelce/Latavius having gone…

    Qb: Cam Rivers or Winston

    Flex: Ginn, Meredith or Burkhead

    .5 ppr

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: I like Winston. And right now, probably Ginn.

    Week 14 Round One Playoffs dilemma. PPR: Rawls, Booker, Burkhart, Bilal and Crowell. The obvious choices are Rawls and Booker but can you make a case for either of the remaining 3? Also, same PPR, need 3, Baldwin, Malcolm, Gabriel, Snead….someone has to sit, but who? Or can I implement a longshot with Floyd or JJ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chucky: I can’t really. I think you go Rawls and Booker for sure. And let’s see, I’d probably do Baldwin, Gabriel, Snead.

    holy crap, i have WAY better options for WR #6 than i usually do, haven’t checked in a bit. start 3 RB/3 WR/ 1 TE/ 2 Flex .2 PPR
    RB mccoy/rawls/howard/ingram/dixon/hightower
    WR jordy/julio/t.will (SD)/a-rob
    TE ebron/rudolph/allen/henry
    RES (these count against 6, but we keep 6 also) allen/jeffrey. i just added jeffrey dropping marv jones. i’m guessing just hold jeffrey for his return (our playoffs are weeks 15-17, and i’m already in those). guessing hold jeffrey over all of: meredith/inman/benjamin (SD) or just go back to marv jones even next week.

    2. this week, it smacks of julio being either out (great if so) or decoy’d (as we’ve seen before). should i just put in dixon now at one of the flexes (the other is ingram unless he’s out, and if he is then hightower at 2nd flex).

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: keep 6 of any position (my QB’s weren’t close to keeping this year or last, now have kaep/stafford/cousins, start 1), going into this year i had mccoy/ingram/jordy/julio/a-rob/allen with rawls being last player cut and then first player drafted this year as well.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Yeah, I agree on the QBs there. But it was a good core to start out with on that group.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: yeah, I loke Alshon the most there. On the last, I’d wait to see what the gametime reports say. Gonna be tough to deal with.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: only good thing is i don’t need to win here. we’ve in the past years seen julio been COMPLETELY decoyed in this exact same situation, literally zero targets, i think even zero snaps after being late ruled “active”. at least one other game where he had snaps but was only real life decoy (vs the first time as a fantasy only decoy), had snaps, sucked up D coverage, but no targets.

    standard dynasty. start 3 WR i have DT (DEN)/a.brown/hilton/m.thomas/maclin. any of these better to own than maclin: t.williams (SD)/floyd/rogers/garcon/wallace/lee?

    0.5 PPR League, 12 teams, first round of playoffs
    QB: Brees
    WR: Tyreek Hill (already started)
    WR: Sammy Watkins
    RB: Ezekiel Elliot
    RB: Demarco Murray
    TE: Ladarius Green
    Flex: Devontae Booker
    Flex: Kelvin Benjamin
    DEF: Cincinatti
    K: Matt Bryant

    Bench: Taylor Gabriel, Andre Ellington (Handcuff), DeAngelo Williams (Handcuff), Mike Gilislee (Handcuff), Alfred Morris (Handcuff), Tyler Boyd

    My question is.. Muhammad Sanu is not playing, and now there are reports that Julio Jones will be a decoy, and thats even if he plays..

    Do you bench benjamin, watkins or booker for Taylor Gabriel who seems primed for a beastly game? Gabriel has been great and last game he had a touchdown called back on a flag.

      Jay says:

      @Josh-NYC: I think you start him over Benjamin.

    I’m projected to be in a tight playoff matchup this week. PPR league, 6pts fpr TD’s.
    QB: Leaning Luck over Cousins?
    RB1: Forte
    RB2: Do I go Doug Martin? Booker? or the wildcard Coleman?
    WR1: Beckham
    WR2: Matthews and his sore ankle? DJax? Gabriel? (I’m already saying no to ARob vs Min)
    Flex: ??? Best of the other WRs I guess or Coleman??
    TE: Fiedorwicz
    What do you think?
    Thanks

    • Wide Right says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: like many I am intrigued by Gabriel.

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @Wide Right: Yeah, the hype is growing, for sure.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: Yeah, I think you go Martin, Gabriel, and probably Coleman. Double check my rankings later tonight though.

  12. Montezuma's Revenge...right now says:

    dynasty 2 QB PPR, 2 QB/2 RB/3WR/1 TE/ 2 Flex
    QB rodgers/rodfather/brock lobster
    RB ingram/mckinnon/forte/ivory/r.mathews
    WR boyd/britt/jordy/edelman/d-jax/treadwell
    TE ertz
    IR allen/woodhead
    also have green julius (TE JAX) now on IR. no more IR spots, could hold of course since long term 2 TE’s is smart, these guys get hurt all the time, but if not him who’s best add out of:
    QB boykin/hackenberg
    RB burkhead/gillislee/forsett/morris/c.west/d-will (PIT)/farrow/cunningham/drake
    WR decker/ginn/rogers/rob anderson
    TE walford/doyle/vance mcdonald/cook/gresham
    this isn’t much about this year, as unless ertz gets hurt this player isn’t playing anyway (clearly burkhead or gresham would be answer if about this year only)
