Some real good mature Cubs derp right there…

It only makes sense because Ursa Minor is in the World Series, you know, which is still going on. Because Bears-Cubs? Look guys, it’s Halloween and I’m tired and I’m staring at an unopened bag of Twix bars. This was never going to end well. And the same could be said for the Vikings, falling for the dreaded trap game, in prime time no less. A place that the Bears have been located for reasons unknown. And they currently have been in more prime time games than the Chiefs, Raiders, and Falcons, where you’d think the Bears would do what they do best, and that’s suffer in anonymity like the Titans do. So while it was a surprising win, I do understand why they put this game on for Halloween: It was still some horrifying football to watch. I told you, I have a plethora of Twix, the Cubs are in the World Series, Donald Trump is running for President, and the Bears are won a home game at night. We are definitely through the looking glass, and we need to get this over with as soon as possible…

Jay Cutler20/31, 252 YDS, 8.1 AVG, 1 TD, 100.5 RTG and 1 CAR, 2 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 2 LONG. Jay Cutler AKA THE COORDINATOR KILLER always feels a bit taken granted of by Chicago, and is quite possibly on course to leaving town and finding more success elsewhere. And for all the hate Cutler gets, even they’ll admit he’s got a great arm. When you think about it, probably too good, since he makes stupid-a*s throws that 95% of quarterbacks wouldn’t even try…

Jordan Howard26 CAR, 153 YDS, 5.9 AVG, 1 TD, 69 LONG and 4 REC, 49 YDS, 12.3 AVG, 34 LONG, 4 TGTS. Has nobody seriously tried running right down the Vikings’ gullet? Was that really one of the league’s top defenses? I’m not really sure what happened there, but Jeremy Langford (1 REC 11 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 11 LONG, 1 TGTS), owners certainly didn’t like it. We’ll know more next week, since his snap count will grow and there are times when Howard simply isn’t a factor, but it’s looking like it’s Howard’s job to lose.

Matt Asiata14 CAR, 42 YDS, 3.0 AVG, 7 LONG and 2 REC, 36 YDS, 18.0 AVG, 31 LONG, 5 TGTS. Normally you’d think a ground war with Asiata would be a grave mistake.

 

Final Thought

Ref got whacked… this really is Chicago! #StripeLivesMatter

    What are your thoughts on Allen Hurns ROS? Is he better than Willie Snead? Is he worth burning the #1 waiver priority for if Snead is literally your third best WR, and you have to start three WRs? Thanks in advance!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @DILinator: I like him as a player, but meh on his prospects, but I’d put him in the same spot as Snead, talented, but not really targeted how they should be. I think this late in the season, if you have the number one, you hold unless it affects the oppositions waiver or something big comes along.

  2. Zandy says:

    How would you prioritize waivers as a ware and Ingram owner?
    1. Hightower
    2. Charcandrick??

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: 1. West 2. Hightower – there’s a lot of coachspeak going on with Payton so if Ingram has the hot hand, he’ll probably get a decent number of carries. Whereas with West, he’s starting cause there’s nobody healthy.

      • Cram It says:
        (link)

        @William Hung: Look at this, you CAN make a logical deduction by yourself. Someday you’ll learn to apply this methodology to your own team decisions.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Hung has it right here, unless you own Ingram, then I think getting Hightower is more of a priority.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: and if I own Ingram and ware and Charles?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: I’m going to the bar.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @Jay: and what if I also own Hopkins Cobb Montgomery and knile? (Lol) do I just unplug the Xbox and restart the game?

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Zandy: Best option I think!

  3. Chad says:
    (link)

    I accept this trade right?
    My demarco and henry for A. Brown?
    Standard 10 teamer

    My RBs are david johnson, freeman and crowell (dion on ir)
    My WRs are fitz, maclin, jeffery and coates.

      @Chad: Yes

  4. Brian says:

    I really have no idea what to do with Howard still dont trust that hes an every week start but after last night seems like it possible. If I trade him what type of players should I be looking for ?

    Also I woke up this morning to this sweet trade offer and didnt hesitate to hit the accept button on my phone. I give Henry,Hill and Snead For Julio, Diggs and Assiata I believe this is a steal. I am also wondering if the commish vetos this though hes already vetoed 2 of my trades and they werent even trades I sent I just accepted what other idiots in this league sends me. What are your thoughts is this a veto able trade or should I light him up if he vetos another ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brian: Yeah, don’t trust him much either, but it’s telling he did this against the Vikings. At worst, it buys him a lot of time. If you do trade him for a WR, I think it’s around the Marvin Jones (with himself struggling) and Travis Benjamin (potential injury) area. Flawed guys, but who have some potential.

      • Brian says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        What are your thoughts on the other part of this question in regards to the trade I made is it vetoable ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brian: It’s a steal, and while I’m not much for vetos, that might not make it through the process. If it does get vetoed, I’d try to reword, it’s a good foundation to create something.

  5. Fizz says:
    (link)

    Have to decide as a commish if this trade is fair. TY for Ajayi and T.Williams. What do you think?

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      Do you have @Fizz: If there’s no collusion, accept it

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Fizz: I don’t see any issues whatsoever. Maybe I’m missing something? What’s the hangup been from the other owners?

  6. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Jay – as a Rashad Jennings owner, should I prioritize a bench spot for Paul Perkins?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: …that someday is not today.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Eh, I don’t think it’s worth rostering Jennings backup. I think just take what you can get from him and him only in that rotation.

  7. Bobby says:
    (link)

    Howdy jay; I was the lucky one who dropped Howard before kick off & yeah that’s one I wish I could redo lol. I dropped Howard for zach Miller, granted Miller gave me the W oh well lol nothing I can do about it now. I can’t reclaim Howard Due to me having the top record & im last on the waivers

    I’ll need a RB2 this week with DJ having a bye & Gordon will be my RB1 this week; I have Henry on my bench I’ll wait & see on Demarco

    Available RBs: Hightower, charcanderick west, Bibbs, Peyton barber, alf Morris, don Jackson, buck Allen, Mike Davis , Shaun draughn, Deandre Washington, Paul Perkins

    I have Charles but wait it out of drop him?

    Next since I’m loaded at WR would you try & trade for a RB? My WRs are Hopkins, Hilton, sanders, fuller, Shepard, Corey Coleman, hogan, moncrief, and Watkins too

    what level RB should I receive for let’s say moncrief or sanders? Tevin Coleman? Jeremy hill?

    Chiefs D is available would adding Chiefs D be my top priority over c west or Hightower? My d is dallas

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: Yo! With Howard though, if it was prescient, there was a strong case to be made to drop him. Getting the win this late in the season is a bit more valuable than losing a RB3ish guy, so take that for what you will.

      I’d look at West right now, simply because he’s got the snap count edge at the moment, and then Hightower. And I think with Sanders, you can get those two, and it’s fair. Moncrief I think is fair too, but it depends how they view his upside this year. I think defense is a secondary want here.

      • Bobby says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Thoughts of this, I deal Henry + moncrief to Demarco owner for ajayi if he declines then I have no prob stashing Henry, how do you view ajayi ROS?

        Ajayis matchups: vs jets, at SD, week 11 at Rams, week 12 vs niners, week 13 at Baltimore, week 14 vs Arizona, week 15 at jets , week 16 at jets

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Bobby: Yeah, I think that’s fair. Tough to say on Ajayi, his value is everywhere right now, but I’m willing to believe that he can, at the very least, be startable at his worst with Foster retired.

    Are Davante Parker and Cameron Meredith droppable in a 12 team league in order to try and get guys like Hightower, West, Smith/Barber, Rawls and Nelson?

    Here’s my squad for context:

    QB: Rivers, Cousins
    RB: Johnson, Bell, Mathews, Gillislee, Kelley
    WR: Pryor, Bryant, Moncrief, Baldwin, Parker, Meredith
    TE: Walker
    K: Bryant
    D: SEA

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: Yes, but only if you need them. Looking at your RBs, I think you have enough depth to hold though.

  9. Joe says:
    (link)

    So….my QB (cousins) is on a bye week, as is my TE (Miller). My league only allows two adds a week. Seems like a simple case of what to target, right?

    Not so fast! Devontae Booker and Ty Montgomery are on waivers. ( Look, don’t judge. Long story.)

    I’m first in my PPR yahoo league. My question is, should I risk playing the week without a TE fill-in (would likely be Pitta) so that I can use an add Booker or Montgomery and, if so, who do I prioritize (assume they’d be flex plays)? My other add will go toward a QB.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joe: I don’t think positions should be punted, but both Booker and Ty belongs on a roster. Is this a 10-team league?

      • Joe says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        It’s an 8 team, but with deep rosters. And we play 3WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, and 2 flex every week. Only one QB, though.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Joe: Hmm, if that’s the case, I don’t mind holding here. There will be a lot of talent out there regardless.

          • Joe says:
            (link)

            @Jay:

            In theory then, in a flex frame of ppr reference, do you prefer Booker or Montgomery?

  10. Juan says:

    Need Help.
    H2H, 12 Team League. .5 PPR.

    My Team:

    Trade Julio for Johnathan Stewart and A. Cooper?

    thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Juan: No, I’d hold and try to find another RB. Maybe try a Howard and Hilton swap for something.

    12 team 1pt PPR

    Currently rostering both Gronk and Eifert. Have underperforming WRs (Nuk & A-Rob) and looking to possibly shore up that spot for the playoffs, currently 7-1. Thoughts on this offer:

    Give
    Gronk
    A-Rob

    Get
    Antonio Brown
    Corey Coleman

    Roster
    QB – Big Ben
    WR – A-Rob
    WR – Nuk
    RB – Lamar Miller
    RB – Ajayi
    TE – Gronk
    Flx – Diggs
    Bn – Eifert
    Bn – Dion Lewis
    Bn – Gillislie
    Bn – R Kelley
    Bn – Tyrell Willams
    Bn – Mariota

    Other options would be to flex Eifert, though I’m not a fan of that strategy. Just can’t bank on A-Rob & Nuk turning it around with their horrendous QB play.

    Thoughts?

    All seriousness, need 3 RBs this week

    3rd has to be Ingram or Ware or an add

    The league is a 10-team 1 pt. PPR with 2 RBS/2 WRS/1 TE/2 Flex W-R-T
    My roster currently:
    WRs: OBJ, Alshon Jeffery, Emmanual Sanders, Donte Moncrief, and Davante Adams
    RBs: Devontae Booker, Giovanni Bernard, Matt Asiata, Tevin Coleman, and James White
    TEs: Greg Olsen, Kyle Rudolph
    (I plan to drop James W for Tyler Efiert if the wavier is successful)
    Should I drop Coleman too, here are potential waiver pickups that’re interesting:
    Jerick McKinon – Allen Hurns – Matt Jones – Derrick Henry – Char West – James Stark – Bilal Powell – Dion Lewis…if you have anyone else in mind that might be a FA in a 10-team league, please suggest. thanks

      Hmm, I think you’re okay holding here just in case. I like West here as a pickup, but I don’t think he’s a difference maker.

      • Ibrahim says:

        @Jay:
        Since Coleman is not healthy at the moment and has a week 11 bye coming up, would it be smart to drop him for West or possibly Dion Lewis. Since I plan to drop White for Tyler E? Or do you simply like his value too much to take this risk. Keep in mind, my RB depth is the weakest, but really only need 2 consistent RB’s since I have plenty of flex options.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Ibrahim: Sure, I’m okay with Lewis there then. I like how he fits with getting rid of White.

    20 team PPR.
    start 2 RB/3 WR/1 TE/1 flex
    RB k.davis/kelley/howard/langford/l.bell
    WR m.lee/s.smith/t.smith/jeffrey/jj nelson (lots of byes this week here)
    TE jimmy/clay
    obviously kniles is gone
    1. best replacement (probably best if it’s a RB, but knowing ranking would be good regardless of position): d.williams (MIA)/harvin/farrow/turbin/darkwa/barner/heyward-bey/wheaton
    2. heyward-bey (now apparently over wheaton) or wheaton over m.lee (lee’s had a decent floor till last week for a league this deep)?

      @Mobin Can’t Hack It: spiller is also available here, recently signed over kniles davis at NYJ

      @Mobin Can’t Hack It: Maybe Williams here. I do like Lee in this league size, last week just didn’t get the targets, could change though.

    Would you drop Ryan Mathews for any one of the following in a 12 team PPR…

    Hightower, Tyreek, Antone Smith, J.J. Nelson, Prosise, Hogan

    Also, would you drop Hunter Henry for Gates?

    Thanks a lot!

      @Sinkhole Demayo: Not sure yet, but that Inman matchup might be good depending on the news with Benjamin’s injury.

    Hi jay.

    12 team 1/2 point ppr keeper…

    Do I drop Rawls or Jennings for west or Hightower ? I have ware and if he’s out, I would have to start Crowell.

    Team is:
    Qb ryan
    Rb wAre, freeman
    Wr ab, Evans
    Bench – Crowell, Jennings, d. Adams, ty mont. Wilson

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Old Dirty: Yo! I think you drop Rawls for West. I like both for different reasons, but I think Jennings is the safer one to keep here.

      • Old Dirty says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Thanks for the quick response !

        What about swapping Julius Thomas for gates or pitta?

        And which would you stream this week ?
        Panthers @ rams
        Rams vs panthers
        Packers vs colts
        Dolphins vs NYj

          Jay says:

          @Old Dirty: Not yet. I still like JT there.

          And I think Panthers.

  36. I got $100 for groceries, $1400 for liquor, and $6,000 for you to go bail a couple of shit puppets out of jail says:

    14 teamer PPR
    QB luck
    RB (start 2) ware/mccoy/booker/ivory
    WR (start 3) woods/parker/a.brown/t-will (SD)/patterson/diggs
    TE henry/eifert
    IR charles
    team is still 7-1. so not a this week option being best.
    so i got a roster hole best filled by RB. guessing best order of guys is c.west (esp as ware owner)/a.smith/hightower/a.morris/bibbs/d-will (PIT)/drake
    2. how much out of my 85/100 should i use here for west? (thinking like 23 or so)
    3. guessing more like in the 5-7 range for the others, in that order
    4. any of these better than patterson ROS? jj nelson/shepard/cruz/royal?

  37. nightpandas says:

    My 5-3 team has dropped 3 straight, getting worried about my rb’s. (12 team, .5ppr, keep 3)

    Would you offer Fitz for Booker?

    My QB (start 1) Cam, Rivers
    My WR (start 3) Cooper, Fitz, J Brown, Shepard, Hurns
    My RB (start 2) Ingram, Ry Matthews, Asiata, Coleman, Dw Wash
    My TE (start 1) Rudolph
    1 flex

    Currently have claims in for D Henry, West, Hightower, A Smith (in that order dropping Dw Wash)

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @nightpandas: I think it’s okay. You really need a running back.

    for dynasty standard leagues as a backup with upside spot (already have zeke/morris/d-will (PIT)/booker/melgor/gillislee) this order bout right: d.lewis/rawls/gillislee

        Would you play Antone over Latavius?

      @Frank White: If you need a RB, go West. If not, hold one more week just in case.

        you see my rb’s.. should i grab him and make trades?

          @Frank White: There’s a case to be made with Coleman’s woes, but I’d hold.

    Roster barber or don Jackson?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Jackson, simply because their RB situation is a mess? I think they are both pretty close… Actually, I’m leaning Barber simply because I think the Packers situation is a mess.

    As a Cobb and Mintgomery owner, should I own Janis as a handcuff? Or is he just a Cobb handcuff?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: He’s probably inconsequential at the moment. Though, I think I wrote a sleeper post on Janis a few years back.

  45. Zandy says:
    (link)

    I have two moves left this week. Given byes, my only two WR are Cobb and Montgomery.

    Should I grab Inman now? Or wait for more Benjamin news?

    FA guys include Wright, Inman, Stills, Torrey

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: The Benjamin news hasn’t been encouraging, but Rudy’s machine has been pimping Wright… I’d like to try him out.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: assume though if Benjamin is missing time that Inman becomes a must add?

  46. Mordacious Levator says:

    12 teamer start 2 RB PPR. i’m very far in first
    l.bell/d-will (PIT)/howard/langford/kelley/d.lewis (in RES slot so i’d later be dropping somebody to activate him anyway)

    for this week due to byes i’m currently having to go both PIT guys. am i better off holding kelley or grabbing starks here? obviously if i want around 3-7 points for this week only i can go grab ivory again

      • Mordacious Levator says:
        (link)

        @Jay: interesting, would think once starks back his volume’d be pretty good (kelley’s was sunday too of course, but jones isn’t dead like lacy from adult onset dia BIT us)

          (link)

          @Mordacious Levator: True, but I think Ty will be in the mix depending on the kidney, and Starks isn’t very good.

          • Mordacious Levator says:
            (link)

            @Jay: oh yeah, if it had much (anything) to do with skills/talent i’d not be here asking. really this or langford’s spot is just dropped if/when d.lewis comes back to doing what’s he’s hoped to.

  47. Zandy says:

    RBs are Gurley Ware Ingram JStew Hightower Barber
    Try to send Ingram JStew Hightower for Demarco?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Hmm. I’m okay with that just to add some stability. Heavy cost, but very well might be worth it.

  48. Ben says:
    (link)

    In a std 12 team league, would you trade away Blount and Michael (a little worried about him) for Melvin Gordon and James White? Booker, Ware, Dion Lewis are my other RBs. The other owner also wants to include me swapping Dez for Cooks but I’d rather leave them out of it.

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yes I would, I think that’s a great trade for you.

      • Ben says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Even with the WRs included? I may try to see if I can get him to take Pryor instead. Dez is kind of a deal-breaker…

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Ben: No, I’d leave the WRs out of it. Good call there.

  49. Zandy says:

    If TBenj misses time, is Inman a must add? Top 25 WR?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Top 50 and I think Williams gets the bigger benefit, but yeah, Inman is viable.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: So you like Wright better than Inman even if TBenj sits?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: I think it’s close, but probably slightly Wright. He’s been getting WR1 looks the past two weeks according to Rudy. I think we talk about him a bit in today’s later pod.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: I picked up Starks this morning as a stash but now I’m thinking of dropping him in favor for Wright. I’d be starting Wright over DeVante Parker. Yay or nay?

  50. William Hung says:
    (link)

    I missed out on Dak so now it’s on to Plan B – Kap, McNown, Tannehill, or just roll the dice on Stafford?

    I added Tannehill as an option since I’m starting both Landry and Parker – so if the Dolphins somehow take advantage of the poor Jets secondary, I think I can put up a good week… but if the Dolphins shit the bed which is also a big possibility, then I’ll end up with like 50 points this week. Is it better to put all my chips with the Dolphins given my situation or look elsewhere?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Probably roll on Stafford, but I haven’t even started rankings yet, just notes, but looking at them, I think Tannehill is close. We’ll know more tonight.

      I’d try to dangle Olsen and West for Ajayi and see if that’s enough. If not, Howard for Riddick could be interesting if it’s PPR.
