While the Chargers fan in me wanted this Sunday Night Football game to be a lazy Father’s Day gift (a tie!), the football fan in me just wanted to do a bit of scouting on Tony Romo’s new team next season. But it was hard to do either with the most boring first half of a football game in the history of the NFL, since last Thursday. Though drinking games usually help, instead, to match the theme of this weekend, I went with an eating game. If a first down happened, I ate turkey, and if not, ham. Worked out pretty well, I have to say. And don’t get me wrong, there were some positives last night. Al Michaels’ continued sabbatical is one. (Kinda like February in Palm West, because it’s all about an old man drying out.) There was… okay, so there was one positive. Which really wasn’t a positive at all with Cris Collinsworth trying to speak with Roger Goodell’s balls in his mouth. Just remember, the NFL flexed this game because they honestly thought that it would be more entertaining than the Jets and Patriots. Which would have been futile anyways, unless they happened to flex Westworld instead…

Matt Barkley – 28/54, 316 YDS, 5.9 AVG, 3 TD, 2 INT, 72.8 RTG and 2 CAR, 0 YDS. Well, Bears fans will probably think Barkley is a good quarterback, because they seem to have a good one that they’ve ignored for several years, leading to the conclusion that this is why the Bears don’t deserve nice things.

Odell Beckham Jr.6 REC, 96 YDS, 16.0 AVG, 2 TD, 41 LONG, 11 TGTS. If Beckham has a bad finger, I think Jason Pierre-Paul has a few lying around he could loan him…

Blake Bortles13/26, 126 YDS, 4.8 AVG, 2 TD, 89.6 RTG and 8 CAR, 81 YDS, 10.1 AVG, 27 LONG. Fun Fact: The player referred to as “Blake Bortles” is actually Blaine Gabbert sitting on the shoulders of Mark Sanchez inside an extra long trench coat.

Tom Brady30/50, 286 YDS, 5.7 AVG, 2 TD, 89.2 RTG and 3 CAR, -4 YDS. I think someone replaced the sound on this game with a porn soundtrack, it was just nothing but the noise of Brady being sucked off…

Derek Carr26/38, 315 YDS, 8.3 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 100.2 RTG and 4 CAR, -13 YDS. The Carr was out of alignment, so they took it into the shop. It’s back on the road, but it’s not handling as one would expect. Keeps veering towards large black cats and running them over…

Isaiah Crowell16 CAR, 44 YDS, 2.8 AVG, 9 LONG, 1 FUM and 6 REC, 47 YDS, 7.8 AVG, 13 LONG, 7 TGTS. Do you think ticket prices for Giants and Browns game fell all the way to two dollars or the floor held up at three?

Joe Flacco25/36, 234 YDS, 6.5 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 84.7 RTG and 2 CAR, 19 YDS. Do you guys smell that? That’s eliteness in the air

Jared Goff20/32, 214 YDS, 6.7 AVG, 3 TD, 1 INT, 100.3 RTG. I can’t believe how good Jared Goff lookedagainst the… *looks and sees that it was against the Saints*…uh, yeah, nevermind.

Rob Gronkowski – 2 TGTS. I like Rob Gronkowski, but I hate the Patriots. I’m assuming that this conflicting thought, upon it’s inception, ripped a small thread into the space-time continuum, thus causing a mini-black hole to form in Gronk’s back, leading him to be injured. It’s legit because it’s science folks.

Todd Gurley13 CAR, 50 YDS, 3.8 AVG, 13 LONG, 4 REC, 39 YDS, 9.8 AVG, 31 LONG, 4 TGTS. This year is reaching the point where I’m starting to question if the NFL hasn’t always been terrible and I’m just now noticing it. And I feel like the Rams are a huge part of this somehow.

Hunter Henry – 2 REC, 20 YDS, 10.0 AVG, 1 TD, 12 LONG, 3 TGTS. Anyone calling him Hunter Hearst Henry yet? I feel like there’s a lot of fun to be had with that.

Jeremy Hill12 CAR, 21 YDS, 1.8 AVG, 7 LONG and 6 REC, 61 YDS, 10.2 AVG, 24 LONG, 6 TGTS. So… still puts up the same kinds of numbers with literally no one named Giovani in the nearby vicinity other then that one pizza joint. SMH.

Jordan Howard – 18 CAR, 84 YDS, 4.7 AVG, 22 LONG and 3 REC, 43 YDS, 14.3 AVG, 23 LONG, 5 TGTS. If I owned Jordan Howard, I would have broken something when he dropped that easy touchdown pass. Then again, if I had owned Jordan Howard, I wouldn’t have been surprised.

Rashad Jennings – 15 CAR, 55 YDS, 3.7 AVG, 11 LONG and 2 REC, 4 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 4 LONG, 2 TGTS. I’m pleased to announce, that because of Rashad Jennings, I’ve become a pretty big fan of vodka shots.

Colin Kaepernick29/46, 296 YDS, 6.4 AVG, 3 TD, 1 INT, 94.1 RTG and 10 CAR, 113 YDS, 11.3 AVG, 30 LONG. I haven’t seen Colin Kaepernick’s effort come up this short since he said he didn’t vote in the election…

Cam Newton14/29, 246 YDS, 8.5 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 86.3 RTG and 3 CAR, 6 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 1 TD, 3 LONG. I feel like Riverboat Ron fell off the boat a bit this year… along with his team.

Brock Osweiler22/37, 246 YDS, 6.6 AVG, 3 INT, 45.6 RTG and 3 CAR, 23 YDS, 7.7 AVG, 1 TD, 21 LONG. Brock Osweiler is the worst investment Houston has made since Enron.

firerivers

Philip Rivers22/30, 242 YDS, 8.1 AVG, 3 TD, 1 INT, 116.3 RTG. Rivers will not be stopped. Bask in his glory.

Lamar Miller 19 CAR, 57 YDS, 3.0 AVG, 20 LONG and 3 REC, 18 YDS, 6.0 AVG, 11 LONG, 4 TGTS. I’m wise to your tricks Lamar! This is where you and your hype almost convince me that you’re an elite bellcow back, and then you jerk the rug out from under me. I refuse to be fooled again! *Begins writing 2017 hype post on Lamar Miller…*

James White – 4 REC, 22 YDS, 5.5 AVG, 11 LONG, 9 TGTS. “Intended for White” also sounds like a very apt description of the Patriots receiving personnel.

Russell Wilson – 17/33, 151 YDS, 4.6 AVG, 2 INT, 38.8 RTG and 8 CAR, 80 YDS, 10.0 AVG, 17 LONG (6 SACKS, 33 YDS). Apparently the Seahawks have saved 50% in cap on their offensive line by switching to turnstiles. (Time for Tehol to start drinking heavily I think.)

Jameis Winston – 21/28, 220 YDS, 7.9 AVG, 2 TD, 1 INT, 106.2 RTG and 5 CAR, 12 YDS, 2.4 AVG. The weekly interception challenge accepted… Jameis is always the one to place balls where they don’t belong…

 

Final Thought

We replaced all the Bears receiver’s hands with slabs of t-bone steaks. Did anyone notice?

      @ashtray: I’ll be honest, as weird as it sounds, I usually don’t watch Thanksgiving Day football. I’m usually in the kitchen and watching the dog show. I guess I could write something up, but napping and watching the dog show are usually my only requirements of the day post-cooking.

          @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Haha, yeah, I actually never grew up with football on Thanksgiving as tradition, it was always the Macy’s day parade, dog show, eat, nap, and then watch the Die Hard movies. (A Christmas fixture.) The Parade is a shitshow, but I’ve kept everything else in place.

    Dolphins vs ARI

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I thought back to all the players I missed on and it’s a long one. That’s 2 straight years of finishing near the bottom, and still trying to figure out how to minimize luck here…

        Some of the decisions that did not help me this year –
        1. hanging on to Corey Coleman instead of dropping him for Jordan Howard, and then 2 hours later, he breaks his hand in practice
        2. Choosing DeVante Parker over Kenny Britt
        3. Not picking up Jay Ajayi
        4. Dropping Rashad Jennings for Paul Perkins, then Rashad remembers how to be a RB again.
        5. Drafting Allen Robinson and Randall Cobb (never again)

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Yeah, I think that you’d find a lot of people who did those five things too, or something related. Jay Ajayi for instance… he was probably one of the least useful handcuffs before taking off.

              @William Hung: For sure. I’ve already wondered how high Gurley is going to go next season. He’ll be hyped so much from such a bad year, that he might actually be more expensive.

          @William Hung: That’s it? Geeze, from your documented complaints every day this season about what you didn’t do, I would have thought the list would be longer. Everyone has a list like this. Only one guy in every league could pick up Ajayi, Britt, etc.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Cram It: it is a much longer list – those were the ones I thought off the top of my list. I should’ve added drafting Bortles to the list.

            • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
              (link)

              @William Hung: at this point he should by heart have a longer list or your team already made just from the times he trolled the questions.

              and it’s worse being the guy who did have ajayi till about 3 days before the explosion, same as last year with freeman, esp since ATL had 2 TV games to start year last year and we got to see that he looked worse than coleman twice in those games.

            • Cram It says:
              (link)

              Bortles has more fantasy points than Rivers, Newton, Wilson, Palmer, Eli, and Elite Joe Flacco. Hardly a bust.

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @Cram It: I agree, in fantasy, Bortles has been okay. In real football, dude is getting all of this in garbage time.

                • Cram It says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay: Yeah he’s pretty terrible at football. That said, as a Bears fan, I’d take him!

    Greetings Master Jay!

    Wowza! Crazy stuff where did the season go crazy to believe week 12 is almost over !

    .5 ppr league I’m going to need good fantasy vibes on my side

    My opponent is done his score is 118.5

    My score is 104.5. Being down 14 & I have mason Crosby, Smallwood & defensive player too. Haven’t picked my defensive but leaning either Morgan Burnett, Jordan hicks or Malcom Jenkins

    oh thank god t-will is probably ok, he’s probably my biggest steal this year (in 4 leagues, one dynasty) and right now isn’t the time to worry about him. well really if he got hurt in week 13 it would be worse with playoffs in 14-16, but still.

    what’s this westworld about? (i stop listening to podcast at that juncture, as i don’t want tip offs to a show i could maybe watch later)

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: oh shit, i forgot, t-will could be a LAST round keeper in a 14 teamer too. yeah that’s nice. only keep 2 but that’s value baby (parker as a last rounder is also in play)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: Yeah, I here ya. Westworld, if I were to sell it, I’d call it sci-fi drama at it’s finest. A lot of great shout outs to previous genre icons while building it’s own mythos. Here: I’d call it a 500 piece puzzle. Sometimes hard to see or understand, and it takes a while to put it together, but when you find a cluster and figure out a section, it’s such an ecstatic feeling.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: something like a less arty (read lynchian) twin peaks, but couldn’t be THAT good of course.

          @goodfold2: Sure, I mean, Twin Peaks is just so, you know…, but yeah, I could see it as a selling point. It comes highly recommended.

    wouldn’t romo’s new team more likely be CLE or somebody with really bad QB issues? DEN has the mediocre semian and big rookie drafted lynch.

    anyhoo, 16 team dynasty in fantrax, PPR. 1 QB/2RB/3WR/1TE/1 Flex start. max 6 active WR, max 5 RB, 3 TE, 2 QB. infinite in IR/stash slots, which can be filled with players that can’t play (or even questionable) for any reason. team based around ARI.
    QB palmer/elite checkdown artist flacco
    RB dave johnson/hyde/stewart/hightower/starks
    WR evans/t-will (SD)/garcon/floyd/treadwell
    TE ebron/ertz
    IR – RB – chris johnson/sims/jacquizz
    WR freer of slaves (john brown), JAron brown, mart bryant
    TE tamme
    should i drop garcon for any of mitchell, ginn, patton, m.wilson?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Well, they’ve had some success with something like this. There was some news last week that Elway has already begun discussions, but like all things, it’s a two-way street.

      Out of those names, Wilson kinda intrigues me, but I think it’s a spot you can hold if something better emerges. Not sure if FA freezes for you, but I’d never want any part of Ginn, even in a league so deep.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yeah ginn is terrible, only listed from having a high Ptsper game.
        didn’t get this line:
        “Not sure if FA freezes for you”

        wasn’t aware of elway mentioning he wants romo, makes sense in the sense that they are competing now, would probably make lynch actually good in that he wouldn’t start for a few extra weeks (till romo breaks something and maybe actually gets crippled that time)

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Oh, some formats freeze the wire at certain points in the season. Here’s the piece that had the info: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000742358/article/tony-romo-eyeing-broncos-as-offseason-destination?campaign=Twitter_atn

          “Romo, I’m told, already has eyes on the Broncos as a possible destination if general manager John Elway decides Paxton Lynch needs another year and that Trevor Siemian isn’t the guy. Other options, depending on a variety of factors, include the Bears, Jets, Cardinals, and Bills. When the Cowboys do trade him, they’ll still have to deal with about a $20 million salary-cap hit. Romo will have significant say in the matter given that he will need to renegotiate his deal. He, essentially, could veto any move.”

          As a Chargers fan, I don’t want to relive this again, so yeah.

          • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
            (link)

            @Jay: we do our waivers as exactly 48 hours from that player’s gametime start. so you actually sometimes have to strategically place your waiver claims, as they don’t all come off at 3 AM wednesday like yahoo would.

        @Jay: but not massive enough to keep henry useful, which sucks.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: Yeah, exactly. I think Henry gets most of the TE looks inbetween the 20’s, but Gates will be the RZ guy. Still, pretty bad situation all around.

    So in a league that I won’t make the playoffs, but more importantly won’t win the Sacko, I’m looking at trades for keepers. It’s a 10 team standard points keep 2 players league. I think the only keepable players in such a shallow league are RB’s as they are the most rare. I have la’veon as one keeper but I’m not sure how i feel about keeping Lamar Miller. I know its a long way off, a ton of stuff could happen in the offseason and all, but would you rather have McCoy or Lamar after this season?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @RonnieMatt: Probably Lamar just because of health concerns… which is funny to say about Miller. McCoy I just think carries more risk, while the reward isn’t as big as one might want.

    not owning gronk/olsen (i don’t pay for TE’s) but def owning eifert or ebron or jimmer in every league this year, man it don’t pay to waste an early round pick that often (reed hurt again too for the trifecta), they get hurt very easily in gronk/reed (gronk started year hurt too, still cost high pick), and now olsen’s having a shitty season too. wonder how many gronk/reed/olsen drafted teams average compared to somebody who has one of ebron or jimmer/eifert (and streamed till they got healthy/useful) for this year, bet it’s much lower.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah, this year I think more than others really shows the trials of owning a top tier TE. I usually recommend streaming the QB position, but I may switch that to TEs next year.

      • What's a Drexl? says:
        (link)

        @Jay: the time’s i’ve done QB streaming it’s much harder to do well with it. most of season of course i haven’t had to stream TE’s in the jimmer/ebron leagues, yeah, quite a long time in the eifert ones.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @What’s a Drexl?: Yeah, to be more specific, I generally want people to draft low tier QBs, like Rivers and Eli Manning, Andy Dalton, but sometimes, that’s just leading to streaming. This year, it’s been especially hard to do that, so my thinking on QBs and TEs have evolved a bit, for sure.

          • What's a Drexl? says:

            @Jay: last year got lucky in my luck leagues (and elsewhere) grabbing bortles and his crazy 2nd half volume TD productions.

              @What’s a Drexl?: Yeah, Bortles has been incredibly bad this season, which actually helps him in fantasy with all the garbage time he’s getting. It’s a weird case study.

              • What's a Drexl? says:
                (link)

                @Jay: last year though he would gobble up yards and TD’s those are WAYYYYY down this year. his 2nd half (sometimes 2-4th quarters) of games last year in garbage time were AWESOME, at least 4 weeks i’d be losing and projected to lose by a decent amount and stop following it somewhat, then notice bortles just got 3 TD’s in the 2nd half and like 220 yards too.

    wow, that’s 3 calls for GB in this game. can’t remember any close things being flipped to PHI’s side.

    @Jay – You think Dontrelle Inman is worth a pickup? Thinking of rolling with him over Marqise Lee.

    12 team PPR start 3 WR have all of these: a.brown/diggs/tate/t.benjamin/sanders. drop benjamin for any (and order if more than 1) of: m.wilson/inman/marv jones? need to win maybe right now, and would be up against better teams in playoffs also.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

        @Jay: inman/marv jones waivered by higher waiver guy, what about wilson over benjamin (SD)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Eh, I’d hold. He’s practiced three days so far, so I think he’s safe again.

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:

            @Jay: and guessing you’d think both bears don’t often do as well as they did last week and those targets get spread around anyway, making wilson not nearly as valuable as his last week was.

    Hey Jay, for my 10teamer should I stick with my Az D or pickup Balty v Miami (both available) or SD & Pitt also free…

    In my 12teamer I have my Miami but can put a waiver in tonight for Baltimore, Philly (@ Cincy), SD (v TB) or Pitt (V NYG)

    Last thing, you like T Hill as a waiver pickup (unfortunately I dropped him last week) over Inman or Gabriel or M Wilson, right? Do I have those guys in right order?

    Thanks bud!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Hmm, might stick with Zona there. I like them a little more than the others. I think Inman is the guy there, then Hill. I could be bias though, but I’ve always liked Inman.

      • Nick says:

        @Jay: who is your pick in my 12 teamer for defense?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: I think Philly, but SD is close. Bosa has been incredible. So has Heyward.

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: you don’t think Miami injured line is a good bet for Balty? Or are those guys coming back?

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Nick: It’s okay. I think Ravens could be the non-flashy pick. But I tend to like defenses with playmakers, that can get those sacks, fumbles, and interceptions. I think Balt is solid, but not flashy.

    Do you like Jeffrey or dion lewis ROS? In a ppr

    It’s for a bench spot .

    Thanks

    Hey Jay,

    Must win this week to get in playoffs ….5ppr, 12 teams

    Need 3 of 4:

    Ajayi (at Bal), Gurley (at NE), JStew (at Sea), Hightower (vs Det)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: I hear ya, everything a must win here on out, pressure is on! I think you go Ajayi, Gurley, and Hightower there.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: Jstew could flip with Gurley, but I haven’t started rankings yet, so keep that in mind.

  22. Nick says:

    I have a free roster spot since i carried 2 defenses last week. Would you grab D Lewis for bench or handcuff someone like D Johnson or Lat Murray as I already clinched playoffs in that league? I could also start looking for upcoming defenses to pickup but in just a 10teamer I think that can wait…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’d actually go Lewis there. The potential is pretty good going into playoffs.

  23. Montezuma's Revenge...right now says:
    (link)

    14 team PPR. better off grabbing burkhead or boldin or a backup TE in bennett/l.green/doyle/henry?
    RB (2) mccoy, the 2 DEN guys, the 2 KC guys.
    WR (3) a.brown/parker/t-will (SD)/inman/diggs/boyd
    TE eifert

  24. John says:

    For some reason we have a late trade deadline, I just got offered
    doug martin and golden tate for Booker and Hopkins

    I would be getting Martin and Tate. I feel like I should do it, but I’m not sure. Thanks

      Jay says:

      @John: Yeah, I think this gives you a bit more floor, a bit less ceiling. If you already have some anchors on your team, I dig it.

      • John says:

    now rotoworld is just getting weird:
    “Aaron Rodgers (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday’s practice.
    The Packers didn’t actually practice coming off their Monday night win over the Eagles, so it’s just an estimate. Either way, it looks like Rodgers is on track to suit up Sunday against Houston. Rodgers will be an elite QB1 in that matchup.”

    pretty sure it’s not called an “estimate” when you say somebody was limited at an event that never happened. it’s a fantasy.

      • I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yeah, there’s times they are quite funny (however we don’t get to see how many writers and which blurbs are written by which guys, sometimes i think you might be writing some of those); this is first time i’ve EVER in any sport claim a “guy didn’t practice” even though there was no practice though.

  26. I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
    (link)

    if diggs plays (tomorrow) you have him or sanders higher, PPR.

      • I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
        (link)

        @Jay: as do the top 40 over at FP. is this from diggs behind probably somewhat limited and an early game, DAL is better at covering #1 WR (diggs) than JAX is vs #1 or #2 (depending on whether DT or sanders is considered a #1 matchups wise) JAX 25th/26th vs those WR from outsiders, DAL 15th vs #1’s.

          • I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
            (link)

            @Jay: i’d think due to targets and his role in the offense if we knew diggs was completely healthy he’d be the floor, of course we aren’t yet in that situation.

  27. Nick says:
    (link)

    Flex in standard: D Booker or Lat Murray? WR3: T Boyd, M Jones Jr, Snead or Inman?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Doing rankings now, so maybe hold until they come out. Just starting on QBs. Of the top of my head, I’ll probably will have Latty ahead, and Jones.
