One is an underrated story that fell apart under it’s own depressive weight and the other is the movie 28 Grams. For those who are wondering why Mark Ingram (3 CAR, 5 YDS, 1.7 AVG, 2 LONG, 1 FUM) did his best impersonation of Toby Gerhart, behold:

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram lost a fumble for the second straight week during Sunday’s win over the Seattle Seahawks. …After that, all of the Saints’ handoffs went to Tim Hightower and rookie Daniel Lasco. Ingram was not available for comment in the locker room after the game. “He wasn’t carrying it loose,” Payton said of the fumble against the Seahawks. “They were able to just pull it free. We’ll be back to work with him.” Payton said not fumbling had been a point of emphasis for Ingram after the previous game, which explains the quick decision to go to Hightower.Source.

I just want to add that Tim Hightower fumbled in the same game AND Ingram has five career fumbles. Five. You know, it would really screw up my week if I have to drive all the way out to New Orleans to punch Sean Payton in the d*ck. Anyhow, we’re here to get ready for Halloween by eating a copious amount of Twix bars to talk about Sunday’s games and Fantasy Football, so let’s get started!

Actually, before we get started, if you’ll indulge me (don’t bother answering, as I can’t actually hear you without somehow transporting to your location in the blink of an eye, and probably a time machine), I did find myself channel-jumping between the Sunday Night Football game and Game 4 of the World Series, and I couldn’t’ help but notice…

  • Never really starts on time.
  • Regularly lasts more than three-and-a-half hours.
  • Constant commercial interruptions right in the middle of the action.
  • Never ending talk of anecdotal nonsense, generalizations, overall banal commentary, all while ignoring more interesting insights.
  • Nepotistic, boys (as in athletes) club of announcers.
  • Willful ignorance of player safety in general.
  • Somehow able to shape public opinion against millionaire athletes in favor of billionaire owners.

Football and baseball turned into baseball and football so gradually, I didn’t even notice…

Martellus Bennett4 REC, 35 YDS, 16 LONG, 5 TGTS. Does Martellus Bennett love being on the Patriots, or does he love not being on the Bears? I feel like this should be the modern version of the ole paradox of the chicken and the egg.

Giovani Bernard11 CAR, 52 YDS, 4.7 AVG, 1 TD, 12 LONG and 1 REC, 14 YDS, 14.0 AVG, 14 LONG, 1 TGTS. Giovani Bernard: giving fantasy players a false sense of hype in bi-weekly increments for three years running!

Tom Brady22/33, 315 YDS, 9.5 AVG, 4 TD, 137.0 RTG and 1 CAR, 15 YDS, 15.0 AVG, 15 LONG. It appears that our only hope in the AFC to stop Tom Brady and Patriots is… wait for it… the Oakland Raiders…? Jesus. Peak 2016 has been officially reached…

Cameron Brate3 REC, 22 YDS, 7.3 AVG, 1 TD, 17 LONG, 5 TGTS. Brate actually had less yards this game than the Raiders had penalties (23), which is now the new NFL record mind you, and the Bucs still lost. Yesterday was not real life, I guess.

Derek Carr – 40/59, 513 YDS, 8.7 AVG, 4 TD, 117.4 RTG and 1 CAR, 13 YDS, 13.0 AVG, 13 LONG. He kinda has flashes of looking like a legitimate elite quarterback. Do the Raiders get to have those?

Brandin Cooks4 REC, 44 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 1 TD, 20 LONG, 6 TGTS. “Too many Cooks? What the hell are you talking about?”- Drew Brees.

Amari Cooper12 REC, 173 YDS, 14.4 AVG, 1 TD, 34 LONG, 15 TGTS. The Buccaneers defense seemed to think they were playing in the CFL. Must be seeing their futures.

Kirk Cousins38/56, 458 YDS, 8.2 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 97.2 RTG and 3 CAR, -1 YDS, -0.3 AVG, 3 LONG. A missed read or “ball thrown away”… with Cousins, one can never be sure. But I’ll admit, he looked good in London, comfortable even. I mean, when you think about it, this is probably a good fit, sending these two teams to London. Redskins and Bengals were a favorite of colonial marksmen…

Andy Dalton27/42, 284 YDS, 6.8 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 81.8 RTG and 4 CAR, 21 YDS, 5.3 AVG, 1 TD, 14 LONG, 1 FUM. There’s also a connection to royalty with these two quarterbacks. Cousins are who they marry and Andy Dalton is what their children look like.

Ryan Fitzpatrick16/34, 228 YDS, 6.7 AVG, 1 TD, 79.0 RTG and 4 CAR, 13 YDS, 3.3 AVG, 8 LONG. If you told me the Jets would still be starting Fitzmagic and his 11 interceptions in Week 8, I’d look at you and respond: “And you were expecting something else?”

Nick Foles16/22, 223 YDS, 10.1 AVG, 2 TD, 135.2 RTG and 1 CAR, -1 YDS, -1.0 AVG, -1 LONG. With Alex Smith‘s (9/19, 127 YDS, 6.7 AVG, 1 TD, 87.0 RTG and 2 CR, 9 YDS, 4.5 AVG, 8 LONG) concussion, does that mean, like, Foles is an upgrade? Do we actually want to live in a world like this?

Mike Gillislee12 CAR, 85 YDS, 7.1 AVG, 1 TD, 28 LONG and 3 REC, 9 YDS, 3.0 AVG, 6 LONG, 3 TGTS. Gillislee looked… competent. I don’t know if I can handle this.

Frank Gore & Robert Turbin11 CAR, 46 YDS, 4.3 AVG, 11 LONG and 5 REC, 50 YDS, 10 AVG, 1 TD, 18 LONG, 6 TGTS. I combined their stats to try and make them look better, but to be honest, I think this actually made them look like what you’re supposed to get from, you know, one running back…

Jimmy Graham3 REC, 34 YDS, 15 LONG, 5 TGTS. There was at least one “Jimmy Graham played basketball” reference. Finish your drinks, throw a cat a the TV, and punch a window. Note: Does not have to be in that order, but from personal experience, I’d recommend it.

Rob Gronkowski5 REC, 109 YDS, 21.8 AVG, 1 TD, 53 LONG, 7 TGTS. And that’s 69 touchdowns for Gronk in his career; the all-time franchise record in New England. Of course it was 69 and of course you know some BU coeds are going to be getting scored on this week worse than those Bills defensive backs…

Tyler Eifert9 REC, 102 YDS, 11.3 AVG, 1 TD, 22 LONG, 12 TGTS. He gets an A for Eifert.

Ezekiel Elliott22 CAR, 96 YDS, 4.4 AVG, 16 LONG and 4 REC, 52 YDS, 13.0 AVG, 25 LONG, 4 TGTS. I think Elliott is like my opposite, in that he’s strong, athletic, and doesn’t start crying when surrounded by large men.

Mike Evans4 REC, 50 YDS, 12.5 AVG, 18 LONG, 11 TGTS. Well, sh*t. #ExpertAnalysis

Tim Hightower26 CAR, 102 YDS, 3.9 AVG, 28 LONG and 1 REC, 0 YDS, 3 TGTS. Are the Saints actually a running team now? How does that work?

DeAndre Hopkins4 REC, 44 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 14 LONG, 7 TGTS. If a nobody scores in fantasy, does it really count?

Marvin Jones3 REC, 33 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 11 LONG, 7 TGTS. “We’re here for you, buddy.” – Alcohol.

Robert Kelley21 CAR, 87 YDS, 4.1 AVG, 1 TD, 16 LONG. So, remember those few minutes when Matt Jones was fantasy relevant? Those were the days… If Kelley does keep this up, Gruden has a long history of letting the hot hand soak up the majority of snaps, so keep that in mind.

Christine Michael – 10 CAR, 40 YDS, 4.0 AVG, 1 TD, 10 LONG and 1 REC, 2 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 2 LONG, 2 TGTS. I’m not especially high on Michael, nor am I low, and he’s produced numbers that match my conclusion. So it would seem I have no strong feelings on what his fantasy value is.

J.J. Nelson8 REC, 79 YDS, 9.9 AVG, 2 TD, 19 LONG, 12 TGTS. I really think he was taking advantage of the Carolina defense being so exhausted from sacking Carson Palmer (8 SACKS, 47 YDS) for over three hours. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! I would say with Jaron Brown’s injury and the recent missing person’s report filed for Micahel Floyd, Nelson will still have some value, even with John Brown returning soon.

Brock Osweiler20/29, 186 YDS, 6.4 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 83.4 RTG and 3 CAR, -3 YDS, -1.0 AVG, -1 LONG. I blame the millennials for Osweiler.

Walter Powell3 REC, 59 YDS, 19.7 AVG, 35 LONG, 8 TGTS. Siri, what is Walter Powell?

Dak Prescott19/39, 287 YDS, 7.4 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 79.8 RTG and 7 CAR, 38 YDS, 5.4 AVG, 1 TD, 16 LONG. So at what point does Tony Romo call Drew Bledsoe for advice?

Terrelle Pryor Sr.6 REC, 101 YDS, 16.8 AVG, 35 LONG, 13 TGTS. So, is he a wide receiver disguised as a running back or a running back disguised as a wide receiver? Or wait, isn’t that just the same thing?

Philip Rivers20/47, 267 YDS, 5.7 AVG, 2 TD, 3 INT, 48.8 RTG. Guess that’s my cue to start drinking the hard stuff…

Jacquizz Rodgers19 CAR, 69 YDS, 3.6 AVG, 1 TD, 12 LONG and 1 REC, 9 YDS, 9.0 AVG, 9 LONG, 1 TGTS. I’m so glad that someone named their child Jacquizz, and that this child became an NFL player, because the world needs to know about that name…

Wendell Smallwood1 CAR, -5 YDS, -5.0 AVG, -5 LONG, 1 FUM. Smallwood seems to be just like me, in that he can’t do anything positive and his balls are constantly handled carelessly.

Golden Tate7 REC, 42 YDS, 6.0 AVG, 13 LONG, 9 TGTS. Man, who would’ve guessed the offensive combination of Matthew Stafford (27/41, 240 YDS, 5.9 AVG, 1 TD, 89.5 RTG), Jim Bob Cooter, and a golden taint would be anything less than a powerhouse?

Chris Thompson7 CAR, 14 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 6 LONG and 5 REC, 27 YDS, 5.4 AVG, 13 LONG, 5 TGTS. The Washington Re…gressions. The only offensive thing is watching them play.

Spencer Ware7 CAR, 19 YDS, 2.7 AVG, 7 LONG and 2 REC, 28 YDS, 14.0 AVG, 23 LONG, 2 TGTS. Exited the game due to concussion with Charcandrick West (14 CAR, 52 YDS, 3.7 AVG, 18 LONG and 2 REC, 8 YDS, 4.0 AVG, 6 LONG, 3 TGTS) taking over over running back duties (apt I think) until Charles returns. Hey, how is Charles doing anyways?

The hits for K.C. kept on coming as coach Andy Reid said after the game that running back Jamaal Charles is going to see Dr. James Andrews this week to get his knee checked out again.Source.

Chiefs are going to have a special team indeed

Russell Wilson – 22/34, 253 YDS, 7.4 AVG, 1 INT, 74.8 RTG and 3 CAR, 11 YDS, 3.7 AVG, 5 LONG. Ah yes, the strategic intentional pick. Just as it was drawn up.

    My teams have wining records but are fading fast I need to find a lottery ticket on a very thin waiver wire. What do you think the chances of Darren McFadden getting traded are ? I feel like if he gets traded to the right situation he could have a lot of value such as the Vikings or maybe Baltimore would be a good fit since they are going with the 0 running back theory.

    Is there anyone other RB lottery tickets out there that you feel may bust loose soon that I can get for the super cheap right now ?

      @Brian: Could be something there, but I haven’t heard anything big that would attract too much attention. I think grabbing someone like a Drake or a Barber, guys that are getting expanded roles could be worth a shot.

    12 team half-PPR. I’m in 1st place and most likely end up with a 1st round bye so I’m keeping an eye on weeks 15-16.

    QB: Rivers, Winston
    WR: M. Jones, Crabtree, Sanders, Wallace
    RB: Bell, McCoy, Bernard, McKinnon
    TE: Gronkowski, Fleener
    D/ST: PHI, KC
    IR: Coleman

    KC: Jax, @Car, TB, @Den, @Atl, (Oak, Ten, Den)
    PHI: @NYG, Atl, @Sea, GB, @Cin, (Was, @Bal, NYG)

    Ben Rothlisberger is somehow available to add right now. I gotta figure out who to drop!
    Drop either PHI/KC or McKinnon/Coleman for Ben Rothlisberger?

    Then, is Charcandrick West worth a #4 waiver claim? If so, who to drop?

    • TOGMAN says:
      (link)

      @TOGMAN: Philly has been so good I’m scared to drop them! But I gotta drop someone. Thanks in advance!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @TOGMAN: I actually don’t think you need him unless you are specifically blocking another playoff team from getting him. What’s their QB situation like?

    Following up on my QB question: Stafford faces the Vikings in Week 9 and so I’m thinking of dropping him for Dak Prescott and then doubling up by picking up Tony Romo for one of my failed fliers.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Yeah, I think that’s fine. Stafford is in the streaming tier, at least for me.

      @William Hung: Don’t think too hard, that’s a no-brainer.

  5. TOGMAN says:
    (link)

    There is only one team that I’m concerned about that might grab him, and that team has Bortles as their only QB. I don’t think I really need Rothlisberger, but I thought he might be an upgrade over Winston, but maybe not..

    But Winston has a soft playoff schedule (NO, @DAL, @NO), as does Rivers (@CAR, OAK, @CLE). Rothlisberger has (@BUF, @CIN, BAL).

    If not Rothlisberger, who do you think about dropping for West?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @TOGMAN: I think you could do it by dropping KC, though both defenses have similar matchups. And yeah, that’s why I asked, because both QBs have some great schedules coming up.

      I think you drop a defense and go from there. West is great depth.

    Week 8 is almost over & my week hangs on the shoulders of this MNF game. It’s .5 ppr I’m down 13 points my opponent is finished but I have Kyle Rudolph, we start defensive players & my DP is vikings LB Eric kendricks, then I have my flex which is open I was going to add cordarrle Patterson but waiting on final news on his concussion. If c patt plays will that help or have no factor on Adam thielen ?

    I’ll need all the good fantasy mojo on my side on this Halloween night to squeak out a W, plus side I originally had Jets D dropped them yesterday AM for cowboys cowboys had 10.5 pts as opposed to 4.5 that jets scored.

    Looking ahead to week 9 better D? I’m dropping Dallas they lost church & mo clairborne too

    Available Chargers D (week 9 vs Titans)

    Chiefs D (week 9 vs Jax)

    Ravens D (week 9 vs steelers w/o Big Ben)

    Dolphins D (week 9 vs jets)

    Lions D (week 9 at Minnesota)

    Thanks again!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobbys world: I’m holding some hope in some leagues on Patterson, which is scary. I think it’s iffy, the full effect if he’s out, but could be a favorite target if he starts. I think you want the Chiefs defense there.

      • Bobbys world says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        It’s very iffy, also thoughts on adding + starting at my flex so my TE will be Rudolph then flex would be zach Miller Miller? I know the Vikings are missing a safety I’m not sure if Miller will be good enough to start,it’s a risk – I’m also thinking he could get targets as a security blanket for cutler with Royal doubtful. Bellamy of the Bears is also there

        Lol very iffy (desperate times) today

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Bobbys world: Yeah, I might do Miller as a backup, just for hopes that he gets some attention.

    10 team / 0.5ppr

    Trade offer: I get Greg Olsen. I give up Gore and Hunter Henry.

    I have decent depth at RB, although a few of them may be fill-ins at the moment. Keep the RB depth or get the ace TE? Thoughts?

    We start two RB’s / two WRs / one flex

    RBs: Devonta, Forte, Gore, Ingram (who knows going forward?), Jacquizz (possibly missing some weeks?), Gillislee (part timer?)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Rice: I’d rather hold here. Either that, or try to trade Jacquizz or Gillislee, temp guys in the long run, but useful now.

    so the Saints are now saying they are going with a committee approach….
    Praying Ingram gets traded!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Yeah, this seems more smoke than fire. I’m rightly salty about it, as should everyone who isn’t a Payton fan, but I find it hard to believe they will willingly give away their season by letting Hightower get 50% of the snaps. I could be very wrong here, but my argument would still be pretty valid. Which here, it’s more a question of coaching aptitude than player skill.

    No trades yet so loaded with week 9 byes in 12 PPR with 1q/2R/3w/ no flex.
    Will be 5-3 in 3rd for 6 playoff spots.
    My team with * if on bye

    Palmer *
    DJohnson*/shady/Gio*/Jstew
    Hilton/Crabtree/Edelman*/Matthews/Djax*
    Eifert*

    1. Is it okay dropping Palmer for a QB pool with Eli, Dax, Palmer, Cousins, and Tyrod available? Not sure given his outburst yesterday despite taking all those sacks.

    2. Would you drop DJax to fill in for Eifert now or take the zero and keep/use DJax for a start and ROS depth when Crabtree and Hilton go in bye week 10? 15 TEs owned and 54 WRs are owned. So I’d end up using a pretty low level Wr week 10. However still lots of ROS to rebuild value in that slot with our short benches.

    Thanks for taking the long question.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The imp: I think it’s okay to drop him in the that group, but I think DJax is just as droppable. I think you have to go in with the mindset that you have to win every week here on out, so do what it takes not to punt a position.

  11. Brian says:

    Just traded Mariota for Duke Johnson. I really didn’t need another QB and I have a feeling that the Duke is going to be better with McCown at the helm. RBS are difficult to find in my league I think he at least makes an okay flex with upside do you agree ? I also picked up McCown I currently have Stafford but plan on using McCown for a couple games since Stafford plays Vikings twice in coming weeks. My thought is Cleveland has such a bad D they will throw a ton and have weapons especially with Coleman getting healthy.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Brian: Yeah, I really like that trade in this context. Yeah, I’d stream there if you can, depending on what’s out there.

    10-tm league. Sitting in 2nd. I was thinking of selling high on Demarco as his # of carries are so high Im thinking he may go down or lose some of the load to Henry (as we saw a little Thurs). Looking to trade for a top tier WR…which below do you think Demarco could pull or would make good targets?

    WRs on teams in need of a top RB and their respective top 2 RB)
    -Julio,Cobb (Ingram, Rodgers)
    -AJ, Edelman, Dez (Gordon, Mccoy) -> not sure he would need Demarco but open to trading
    -Jordy Nelson, A Brown (Charles, Hyde)
    -Cooper, Evans, baldwin (Gio, Stewart, Ajayi)
    -Hopkins, Thomas (Gore, Michael)

    My team is:

    QB- Cam, Palmer
    RB- D. Johnson, Demarco, Freeman, Crowell, Henry
    WR- Fitz, Jeffery, Maclin Coates

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chad: I’d try to trade him straight up here, and my first try would be Julio, and see what happens. I’d be willing to spend a little more to make that happen. If not, any other WR there is gettable straight up (sans Brown), or should be. I’d aim for Julio, then Evans, then Dez, then Cooper.

    Good afternoon, jay! Thoughts of zach Miller tonight now that cutler is under center ? If Royal doesn’t play could that also help Miller? I know the matchup today isn’t ideal but in years past soldier field has been a field of horrors for the Vikings

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I agree on that, but I think Miller will be the target if they want to pressure the WRs. I do like him as a last ditch play for an emergency fill-in.

      • Frank em stein says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

    Hey Jay,

    Just gave up Frank Gore for Brandon Marshall in a 12 team ppr league.

    I tied in my match up this week and I’m hoping for a stat correction. I streamed Tennessee’s this week and something stuck out to me whenever I was watching the JAX/Ten game . Bortles was in a shotgun and ran to the left for -1 yard with about four minutes left in the game. It wasn’t rewarded a sack and I was bitter that night . Now that I’m tied, I want that point back. Any clue on the difference between a sack and a negative yardage qb run ? How do they decide the difference ?

    Thanks !

      @Old Dirty: I believe he has to leave the pocket, but you might need to double check.

    I had jacquiz and been riding him the last couple weeks, heres my rib’s: Freeman, Forte, Elliot, jacquizz, robert kelley..

    with jacquizz’s injury, is he a drop for peyton barber? i have an unused IR slot but I have to wait for TB to rule him out before he’s eligible..

    also is robert kelley worth keeping around or is matt jones taking that job back when healthy?

    some tough calls on the waiver wire for me this week…
    Drop gostkowski or hold him over a bye week (do people do that for kickers)
    drop john brown for jj nelson (john brown hasn’t looked as good as jj nelson all year IMO)

    thanks.

      @helo: i also have kadem carey, alfred morris, and bilal powell at rb..

      thought id give you the full picture of my rb situation. figured handcuffs of forte and elliot are automatic “keeps” right?

        Jay says:

        @helo: Oh, then you’re fine. Morris and Carey are both droppable if you need room.

        Jay says:

        @helo: And I understand owning handcuffs, but you don’t need both, and even if you had both, I don’t think either would produce well enough for them to be starters. Maybe Carey, but I don’t see much coming out of Morris even if he was first on the depth chart.

      @helo: Yeah, these are tough calls. A Barber pickup there is good if you don’t mind the risk of Rodgers being healthy, but with a foot injury, who knows. I think Matt Jones may complicate things, but I don’t think that job is for sure his. I think Gostkowski is worthy of a bye keep if you can make it work. And sure, that switch on Brown and Nelson works.

        @Jay: thanks,

        appreciate the advice, I’m pretty convinced everyone include jacquizz, robert kelley, john brown, kadem carey all are “worth owning” but i’ll have to drop one of them to keep gostkowski over the bye week.

        so i guess my last question is which of the above do you drop

        or*
        do you just wait to see if jacquizz gets IR’d and then pick up a random kicker thursday or Friday

        then do the john brown for JJ nelson swap, although they could be equal value i think i’d place my chips on the JJ nelson ROS side of the bet.

        thanks

          @helo: I hear ya. I’d wait until at least tomorrow night to make a decision on Jacquizz. Brown for Nelson swap is totally fine.

    Looks like Langford is going to ride the pine – Howard with over 100 total yards and it’s not even halftime

    Jay my RBs for week 9 , D.Johnson,R.Kelley, do you think that McCoy will be healthy for week 9? Hopefully he is other wise I need two RB’s , what do you think about Prosise , West, Powell and Dixon, or someone lesser for week 9, it is a 12 team ppr league. 95% of RB handcuffs are already taken.

    Due to a plethora of injuries and bye weeks my week 9 bench options for rb look bleak: McKinnon and Coleman. Sproles and Hightower are out there. Swap them both? Just one? Hold because it’s not worth it long term?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Eh,I’d hold, probably just a one week variance.
