…Because I Always Welcome Another Thing to Disappoint Me.

Wait, we’re already rebooting Spiderman again? Oh, hey, quick question, anyone know who sponsored the SNF opening? Was it T-Mobile? Sprint maybe? Also, you should know that Von Miller was jumping with butt-flames before it was hip…

Welcome to what I call “Jay’s Review”… since, you know, I’m Jay, and this is my review of Week 1. Spoilier Alert! (That probably should have gone before the last sentence, but f*ck it, we’re doing it live!) For many of you who’ve been wandering around my Razzballs (haha, get it?) for the last four years, you’ve seen the site go through minute but incremental changes. Kinda like the world in general. So DEEP. And so this season, we’re bringing yet another minute and incremental change… If you hadn’t noticed, Matt Bowe led off the day with his take on what happened Sunday… you should check it out. I think it was a love letter to Kenny Golladay, but whatever. Having such an informative asset (potential double entendre alert!) in terms of both Football and Fantasy Football will allow me to spread my wings and fly. Right over to your mother’s house. It’s no secret that I like having a little fun… probably a little too much fun. For those of you who want deep analytics like how I want to watch Deep Impact over and over again (Armageddon is in my top-10, lest we all forget that asteroid movies are my fetish) and some usable fantasy information, Matt’s your guy. If you’d like to have a little fun with what happened Sunday, experience some jokes, watch some great plays in GIF form, create some hot takes, AND still enjoy some “measured” usable fantasy information, welcome to my club! We get spiffy hats. Just kidding. I just get the spiffy hats. TL;DR – Why so serious? See Matt! Want to see me in a spiffy hat? See me!

Hey guys, did you know that Nelson Agholor is still alive? And that that he did something good yesterday? Important, because on this Carson Wentz 58-yard TD pass to Agholor, I took it as the 19th sign of the end of the world, you know, in case the hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and fires weren’t telling enough. If you were wondering, my Chargers moving to Los Angeles was number 14.

Hot Takes Alert!

  • I wonder, will people stop pretending Colin Kaepernick is somehow worse than [Random Name Generated Failed White QB Backup] at some point this year?
  • Will the NFL do anything even vaguely redeemable in moral context this season so I can justify to myself why I’m not joining in on some of those sweet-sweet boycotts? (October Pink doesn’t count!)
  • Doritos (finger powder) or FUNYUNS (crumbs and err, light finger powder)?
  • Jordan Reed (toe) or Jason Witten (age)?
  • Todd Gurley is so awesome. Too bad he’s on a team owned by Satan.
  • Will the Jets suck so bad that I can stop pretending that I’m not watching it for a purely “let’s see how much of a disaster this will be” type of reason?
  • Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Florida… for having to deal with the Jaguars, Buccaneers, and Dolphins. Honestly though, if only we had named them “Hurrican’ts” they wouldn’t even be able to hurt us!

Top Plays in GIFs: [[email protected]] Amari Cooper’s TD catch from Derek Carr.

I really really didn’t want to do a “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper” joke here, because, I mean, with Amari Cooper, it’s just low-hanging fruit off the joke tree. So instead, I’m just going to tell you about the time that I wanted to use a “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper” joke and make that into the joke. Get it? It’s just so darn meta. On another note, this is what happens when you show up to leg day… And yeah, that is Derek Carr throwing a touchdown pass to Cooper, in our favorite game of rugby. Speaking of Carr, I like that Marcus Mariota threw for fewer yards, fewer touchdowns, and a lower completion percentage than Carr, but still had a higher QBR. Great metric ESPN!

Hot Takes Alert! Part 2: 2 Hot, 2 Furious.

  • Julio Jones is still a beast-like person. No joke, just wanted to mention the obvious.
  • The refs are already in “early season 2012” form it looks like. Generally it takes them a few weeks and a few games spent in Green Bay or New England to reach this level of ineptitude, so the fast start is pretty impressive. They still also don’t know what a catch is, but to be fair, no one really knows after about 100 years of sample size…
  • Hey, what’s your favorite “second word” used by TV commentators to describe an “athletic” black quarterback? Is it “flashy”? Maybe “mature” or “dynamic” or “shifty”, or maybe it’s just “selfish”?
  • Mike Glennon looks like an action figure that got melted in a microwave.
  • So the Panthers may suck complete rhino butt and Cam Newton‘s shoulder might actually be dead.
  • I love how the Bengals will typically have more players on suspension than players sitting out from injury.
  • Grey is a great color for football pants. It’s great at hiding FAILURE. Think about it folks.

Hot Takes Alert! Patriots Version!

  • Legend has it that Tom Brady forged his first Super Bowl ring in the fires of Mt. Goodell and infused it with so much of his power that as long as the ring lives, so does Brady, in one form or another. Adam Vinatieri was chosen to destroy that ring, but he withdrew from this great quest by moving to the very flat and very white marshland full of Walmarts named in ancient texts simply as: Indianapolis. Until he makes the great journey back to Foxboro and destroys the ring, he will never be able to retire and find rest. And neither shall we.
  • I think I’ve figured it out by the way… the Patriots are good because they are merely competent in a league where most teams are terrible.

The answer to the always prescient question “How sh*tty are the Bears going to be this year”? Easy: VERY. I mean, I really don’t know what’s worse, the Bears pass offense, the Bears secondary, or Peyton Manning commercials… (Nationwide is making me miss the good old days when FanDuel commercials ruled the world. Maybe.)

Obligatory Week 1 Injury Report: EVERYONE IS DYING!

  • Chicago Bears wide receiver Kevin White exited the game after suffering a shoulder injury. Crazy, Kevin White never gets injured. Reports indicate White suffered a broken collarbone and will be placed on injured reserve.
  • Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson did not return to the game after sustaining a wrist injury in the third quarter. Reports state the X-Rays on Johnson’s wrist were negative, but he’ll undergo an MRI today. And just in case, I should get one for my liver.
  • Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson suffered an ACL injury in the first quarter against the Texans and did not return to the game. Reports show that Robinson tore his ACL based on initial tests. Robinson will undergo an MRI to confirm later today that you don’t need Brock Lobster to be useless.
  • New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (ankle) was ruled inactive by the team ahead of the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys yesterday and is considered questionable in Week 2.
  • Houston Texans tight end Ryan Griffin, receiver Bruce Ellington, and tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz all left the game after sustaining concussions yesterday. Defensive end J.J. Watt injured his finger but returned to the game, because of grit I suppose.
  • Seattle Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) was inactive for the season opener. (Rawls practiced this past week but was a game-time decision.)

I don’t know about you, and all due respect to Danny Woodhead (RIP), but that catch was gritty as f*ck.

Interesting Tidbits Around the League: MORE TIDBITS FOR THE TIDBIT GOD!

  • Old Man Witten rides again! Jason Witten broke the franchise receiving record last night, passing Michael Irvin (I’m thirsty for a Coke right now for some reason) with 11,974 total yards, 43 ahead of Irvin. Witten’s success can have only one result: Hipsters will want to emulate his salt and pepper beard, and you can’t use some sort of normal bleach or whatever, they will have to USE MERCURY. And they will then all go crazy and die. #MAGA.
  • Yesterday marked the first time ever that Jared Goff faced off against Scott Tolzien when the Rams took on the Colts, the quarterback matchup I thought I never needed, which then was confirmed by all parties involved that I, in fact, didn’t need it. I’m pretty sure Jim Irsay did think that Tolzein was the next big thing in the pharmaceutical industry.
  • This year marks the 13th time Frank Gore has taken the field in the NFL. How can you play 13 years at the RB position? Dude’s not human.
  • I don’t know much about Jack Doyle, but he just sounds like a member of the Boston Mob, which is good enough for me.
  • Yes, that is a new toupee for Dom Capers. Same defense though.

Top Plays in GIFs & Hot Takes Alert (Two for One Special!): [[email protected]] Ezekiel Elliott Beats Women Version!

  • Ezekiel Elliott knows a thing or two about full frontal assault after that play. After all, he is a power rusher on the field… and in depositions. I mean, honestly, why wouldn’t you just check down to Zeke on this play instead? I assume he would beat the coverage, no?

  • If Zeke keeps this type screen game going though, I’ll let him beat the crap outta me, amirite folks!? (Even though Elliott looks like Kanye West after a creatine breakdown…)

Top Plays in GIFs: [[email protected]] Anthony Brown picks off Eli Manning’s pass.

In what I can only describe as the Saltine Cracker of Sunday Night Football games, my main takeaway was that Giants fans have a lot to be excited about this year, like an entire winter with their Sunday schedules open. And is it just me, or does Eli Manning always look like he has this thought coursing through his mind: “Why does Coach McAdoo have posters of Menudo in his office?” Or sometimes this thought: “How many days until I just start drinking straight out of the bottle?” And in this case, we’re talking about chocolate milk bottles.

THE Top Play in Week 1: [[email protected]] Kenny Golladay leaps to make a 45-yard TD catch.

So, Kenny Golladay appears willing to help Matthew Stafford (who I lovingly refer to as “Fatford”. Totally out of love. Yeah…) earn that new 135 million dollar contract he signed. I actually think it’s great that Stafford has been so charitable in offering to buy the entirety of Detroit with his new contract money. The real question is, what’s he going to do with the remaining 100 million? That’s like what, eight Clevelands? Also, the Lions football stadium is stunningly ugly. They should move to LA.

Final Thoughts: Ben McAdoo Edition!

Ben McAdoo looks like a guy who asks someone out on a date, and tells them they’re coming anyway.

    Thanks for the wrap-up! Had a dynasty rookie draft question for you. Between the tight ends Howard, Njoku , and Engram is Howard far and away the best choice now and long term? Any argument for the others? Currently rostering Maxx Williams and Ladarius Green. Does Green ever see the field again and do you see Williams ever becoming productive? I appreciate the advice.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @WalleyWorld: Yes, I think so. I do like Engram, but think Howard is ahead of this group.

    Thoughts on T West vs Buck Allen after Woody pulled out lame?

    12T half-PPR 100 budget:
    How much would you bid on the following?
    C. Thompson
    J. Allen
    K. Wright
    Golloday
    T. Cohen
    M. Mack

    Thx

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @fudgemybudge: I’d assume West gets an uptick, but I was dissapointed on how the Ravens did anything yesterday after he was carted. Double check when our FAAB post comes out tomorrow, but I think Golloday is a legit target. 20-30 would be me feeling.

  3. ashtray says:
    (link)

    So Cohen and Golladay are most likely the top 2 pickups in my league. I have the #1 waiver and lost Allen Robinson and also David Johnson (for a length of time somewhere between zero and forever). Which one of those two hot pickups should I grab?

    12 team .5 ppr

    My RB/WRs:

    *Johnson
    Bell
    Gore
    Riddick
    Prosise

    Hopkins
    Baldwin
    *Robinson
    Garcon
    Corey Davis
    Doctson

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @ashtray: If you’re an ARob owner, totally go all in on Golloday.

  4. ashtray says:

    Do you think Chris Thompson would be an upgrade over Prosise or Riddick in .5 ppr?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: Riddick? Iffy, but probably. Which is a shame, I love Theo, but I think they don’t know how to use him. Prosise? Less clear, but probably.

  5. RICE says:

    Great write up! It was so great spending an entire Sunday at a bar watching football again!

    12 team – 0.5 PPR – start 2RB, 2WR, 2FLEX

    I lost Allen Robinson and Kevin White yesterday. Would you trade Gurley for Michael Thomas?

    RBS:
    Devonta
    Gurley
    Lynch
    Blount
    Vereen
    Jamaal Williams

    WR’s:
    Davante Adams
    Allen Robinson (out for season)
    K White (likely out for season)
    Snead (suspended until week 4)

    • RICE says:
      (link)

      @RICE: Should add…. free agents available to bid on:

      Golladay, Agholor, John Brown, Stills, Lee, Doctson

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @RICE: Definitely go for Golladay.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @RICE: I’d hold onto Gurley or go for someone bigger. Dez looked great pretty good last night, and with RB depth the way it is, you need to extort people.

      • RICE says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Wasn’t Michael Thomas higher than Dez on your last rankings?

        I definitely don’t want to get rid of Gurley… but I have quickly developed a WR situation. I’ll put a bid in on Golladay, see if I get that, then go from there.

        $1,000 budget…. what bid should I lay down?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @RICE: Yeah, you’re right, probably a bad example on my part as I think I was thinking of Brandin Cooks…

  6. Allan says:
    (link)

    Jay,
    Had Johnson go down yesterday. My backs are Johnson, Ingram, Cook, Lacy, Perkins. Got 1st waiver priority. Pick up Williams, Carson, Cohen, Allen, or Thompson? Leaning towards the handcuff in Williams but was wondering if you thought any of the others might be more valuable. PPR league.

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      @Allan: If it’s PPR the hype train in Cohen is going faster by the minute. If you have a IR spot, then you might want to go Williams since Johnson might be getting the IR-R tag and you can stash him there, and you know for sure Williams will be getting the majority of carries.

      For Floor – go Williams, for hype upside, go Cohen

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Allan: I’m not terribly worried about Johnson, but Williams seems like the safe play, but to burn a 1st waiver priority? I might try for best available, like Cohen, and try to flip him for something useful perhaps.

  7. Jedimasters says:
    (link)

    Jay I’m in a 12 team standard league with the #1 waiver. Who is the add between Cohen, Kerwyn Williams and Golladay? We start 2 RBs, 3 WRs and a Flex.

    RBs: M. Gordon, M. Ingram
    WRs: D. Adams, T. Pryor, D. Parker
    Flex: T. West

    Bench: C. Carson, R. Cobb, M. Wallace

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jedimasters: I’d want Golladay there.

      @Brian: Galloway.

  9. bigbear says:

  10. Jeremy Shockey's Jockey Shorts says:
    (link)

    I have top waiver…lost Robinson and am thin at RB. Which is the #1 waiver, Golladay or Cohen? One sounds like a Madonna song and the other sounds like a late night talk show host. Ok where do I put this man card?

  11. William Hung says:
    (link)

    With the Jags changing their whole offensive philosophy, do you think Chris Ivory is worth rostering in a 14 team PPR league? I think I can nab him without a waiver priority. My drop would either be Jamaal Williams or George Kittle, if my waivers don’t go through

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: yeah, in a 14 team, sure. I like Jamaal over Kittle, but I know you like him. I’m fine with either.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: What about Gio Bernard? Do you think it’ll be Mixon/Hill and then Bernard on passing downs, or do you think at some point that Mixon will be the workhorse? I’m trying to find hidden gems that might slip through my league – I’d think as long as Gio is healthy he’d be doing a Kamara-like role for them.

    that 20 teamer, it doesn’t have waivers (yuck) so j.allen was already grabbed. i don’t think i can add players anyway with some inactives and AAron donald slotted in IR slots (stupid yahoo) but rushing yards worth 50% more i have
    QB (1) cousins (10 pts in this league this week) goff (40ish pts this week). not a bad problem to have, didn’t think it’d come this fast (that’s what she said)
    RB (1) kelley/perine/c.thompson/m.jones/blount (WHEW, at least he was used)
    WR (2) pryor/benjamin (good god he’s gonna have another bad year i just know it)/doctson
    treadwell/jj nelson
    TE (1) reed/v.davis/brate
    IR m.williams/k.marshall (WAS)
    LB (3) e.kendricks/burfict/bucannon/kwon A/the other l.david
    DT (2) mal brown (NE)/malik jackson
    DE (2) campbell/heyward
    S (2) k.joseph/mathieu/s.cravens
    IR donald/hall/t.murphy
    my DE’s did so well that even with 4 LB injured/suspended/bye i would’ve won (even with mathieu being terrible) had i started goff over cousins, but i of course can’t lament that decision (much like somebody’s palmer over rivers)

    It’s Monday of week 1 & already have a injury to my coveted DJ!

    .5 PPR I am officially #1 on the waiver order, who’s my #1 target & why: Golladay, Kerwynn Williams (i own DJ), Tarik Cohen.

    My RBs: DJ, Gordon, mcaffery, hunt, Smallwood, Abdullah, Jamaal Williams

    My WRs: , martavis Bryant, Marshall , D Parker, hogan, Alshon, snead & maclin.

    For the #1 waiver order I’m dropping Carson Palmer, my main QB is Winston who had a hurricane bye.

    Next, how would you rank these for next on my list of available guys: Buck Allen, Andre Ellington, Kupp, agholor, chark west, JJ Nelson , Tolbert, Paul Richardson, Allen hurns, marqise lee, jermaine Kearse, Kendall wright, Marlon Mack.

    With me #1 on the waiver order I will definitely be able to land either Golladay, kerwynn or Cohen.

    Next round when it comes back to me will be tricky

            ————————————————

            Detroit and Cleveland bashing… hot take! Haven’t heard that one before…. bravo! I’ve been to Ford Field for some college games, that place is not ugly… but it is definitely dwarfed by the recent new stadiums built. To be absolutely fair, Ford Field is like 15 years old already.

            Before the draft, before the Cohen, I wanted nothing to do with the Chicago backfield. I don’t think one game against the notoriously porous ATL defense is reason to change that opinion. I’ll hold onto my waiver claim priority.

            Everyone panicking about DJ will end up picking up a guy in 3 weeks or so that ends up filling in for an injured RB and ends up in the top 10 RBs for the last 6 weeks of the year. It happens literally every year, especially in PPR formats. Don’t over-react. Don’t trade because you feel you have to.

            I would trade FOR DJ right now if I felt my team was a playoff team in redraft formats. Change your perception on this topic. Most leagues don’t have a DL – Those leagues should have guys that feel like they are in good shape to compete making deals to secure DJ from teams that likely have a huge hole to fill now.

    i’m gonna beat you to this joke. first off notice that espn 2 (one channel down in most spots probably) has NO @ MIN in spanish. now, for all of us that don’t already know spanish, we probably just now got the best reason to learn spanish we’ll ever have, not having to hear gruden.

    12 team half PPR redraft. white (CHI) out. what’s best order for these waivering (white’s my worst WR): golladay/m.lee/agholor/hurns/woods/m.williams/perriman

    since yesterday bunch of bad news
    12 team 2 QB dynasty, half PPR, daily waivers, j.allen/lee out there, but not agholor/tolbert/k-will anymore since last night. some possible changes since
    1. britt being verbally coach doghoused
    2. ingram getting literally 1/3 of the carries
    3. woodhead out but i can IR him in a couple of days
    might win even without having decided which QB to drop for a kicker and an IDP guy on bye this week.
    4. news out that charles will max out at 10 carries
    12 team 2 QB dynasty. half PPR
    QB (2) rodgers, tygod, mccown, brissett, mahomes
    RB (2) ingram, t.west, forte, woodhead, kamara, charles
    WR (3) allen, britt, d-jax, decker, jordy, treadwell
    TE (1) ertz
    2 flexes (R/W/T)
    IR edleman
    K ?
    IDP flexes (4) l.david, t.smith, ogletree, collins
    team DEF DEN
    1. treadwell or britt drop for m.lee or hurns (it’s finally occuring to me that stashing long term value WR makes less sense in shallow dynasties, as the DAY agholor finally does well he’s added for zero FAAB dollars, pretty sure i held him to 2 years before this year)?

    2. hold charles or grab any of mack/j.allen?

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: woodhead will hopefully be IR able (just says OUT in yahoo) but even gambling one day on j.allen might not be desirable. would be easier in standard wednesday waivers day, not here.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: ah ahahahahaha, unless allen or DEN D ends up with very big days i’ll win with the 3rd or 4th worst score in the league after that CJA can’t get in from inches play, i got allen/DEN D and 4 pt lead vs CJA

          • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
            (link)

            @Jay: yeah won fairly easily as CJA didn’t do much in 2nd half (like melgor), except that TD called back on penalty. got 5th worst score and won. nobody bid anything on lee, so my $7 was too much, meanwhile somebody bid more than that on j.allen. i wasn’t going to bid $8 on allen so it doesn’t really matter that i held charles. when woodhead gets IR’d (or just “out”) i’ll either grab kicker or one of these: mack/d-wash/hill/breida/mckinnon/yeldon/ivory. rotowlrld’s claiming that if cook went down it’d be lat murray, but he looked awful, mckinnon pretty good actually. and that MIN o-line is better than last year, NO D or not against.

    My team is awesome. I won this week with the highest score in the league despite leaving Kareem Hunt on the bench.

    My weakness is at QB, where I drafted Cousins and picked up Palmer off waivers. My question – do you think the Bradford and/or Alex Smith explosions are for real? Should I ditch Palmer for one of them?

    On a separate note, are Tarik Cohen or Jesse James for real? Should I abandon Prosise or Ebron to grab them?

    Thank you, sir!

      @Oliver: james shouldn’t be, PIT traded for mcdonald with like 10 or less days till season, very likely he wasn’t up to speed on play book yet. doubt they traded for him to not use him. would think palmer ditching can’t be that bad.

    • Jay

      @Oliver: Well done! Alex Smith could be worth a shot simply because of the Hunt and Hill factor.

  25. ashtray says:
    (link)

    I asked the same question yesterday but now that the David Johnson situation appears to be more dire I need to ask again. I have the #1 waiver so I can grab either Golladay or Cohen. Which situation is better:

    12 team .5 ppr

    #1
    RB: Bell, Cohen
    WR: Hopkins, Baldwin, Garcon
    Flx: Riddick/Fleener
    Choose from WRs like Woods, Hurns, Kearse and Richardson for WR depth

    #2
    RB: Bell, Riddick
    WR: Hopkins, Baldwin, Golladay
    Flx: Garcon/Fleener
    Choose from RBs like Thompson, Mack, Tolbert, Allen, Kamara for RB depth

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: now? I think you need Cohen.

  26. Jedimasters says:
    (link)

    Good morning Jay I asked this yesterday but now that we have seen the NO Saints backfield I gotta ask you again…
    12 team standard league with the #1 waiver. Who is the add between Cohen, Kerwyn Williams and Golladay? We start 2 RBs, 3 WRs and a Flex.

    RBs: M. Gordon, M. Ingram
    WRs: D. Adams, T. Pryor, D. Parker
    Flex: T. West

    Bench: C. Carson, A. Kamara, R. Cobb, M. Wallace

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jedimasters: I think Cohen, I think your WR depth is enough here.

      • Jedimasters says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I just pulled off a trade of my R. Cobb + Ingram for Odell Beckam Jr. New lineup is:

        RBs: M. Gordon, T. West
        WRs: Odell Beckam Jr, D. Adams, T. Pryor
        Flex: D. Parker

        Bench: C. Carson, A. Kamara, M. Wallace

        Is Cohen still the add over Golladay and Kerwyn Williams? Again, standard league thanks Jay.

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Jedimasters: good trade, and yeah, I think go Cohen here for depth.

    My team is thin at top rb talentwith lots of handcuffs. Standard scoring
    Qb: Brady

    Te: Rudolph
    Flex wrte: k allen
    Flex rbwr: Michael Thomas

    Bench; thielen, Jones jr, Shepard. J stew, Abdullah, tevin Coleman, d henry, Rawls, prosise, Mack

    Got an offer of cohen and hooper plus one of desean, decker, crowder FOR A cooper and prosise (or cohen and fitz for coop+Prosise). I know I’m giving up talent, but does it make sense or just muddy my rb field? Do I hold out and trade for a proven rb1/2? If so, what wr would be best to negotiate with?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @JJ what: Yeah, I think this is a fair deal, but not sure I see a huge enough upgrade over Cooper. I do think your RBs are okay enough to wait a little bit longer.

    16 team league dynasty, i have to have minimum 7 ARI players. full PPR, my healthy RB are now
    prosise/stewart/hyde/perine (max 5 healthy legally). dj in IR slot. in that setup i’m guessing my waiver order should be k.will/j.allen/ellington/others?

  29. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay — I got killed this first week of the season & it all boils down to DJ going down :(

    Anyways, I have some bids in (standard league – auction for waivers starting with $100 each)…and am thinking I need to spend some $ this week for sure. I’m looking to pickup Cohen, Golladay, J Allen, Agholor &/or K Williams with bids ranging from $29 for top end (Cohen) down to $6 for lower end. Do you shift priority around in that list and bid more or less for Cohen?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Yeah, I died too. Yeah, I’d focus most on the big guys here, but check out our FAAB post that’s out, good info there.

    Jay,

    Just like everyone who has DJ, I need someone to talk me off the cliff (although I still won my week 1 match luckily).

    12 tm, standard with $100 Free Agent budget

    We start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 Flex

    My RBs are: DJ, Cook, Gore, Mack, Breida
    My WRs are: Kelvin Benjamin, Jeffery, Garcon, Hogan, Maclin

    Available RBs: K. Williams, Kamara, Chris Thompson, Tolbert, Buck Allen

    But I love Golladay.

    My question, do I drop Breida and bet the farm on Golladay and ride with 3 wrs until DJ gets back or do I drop Breida for one of those not so exciting RBs? Or do I grab Golladay then hope a better RB option pops up?

    Or do I drop Breida and Hogan and/or Maclin for Golladay and 1 of those RBs?

    Thanks for you advice.

    TFD

      @The Fantasy Dick: I think where Cohen isn’t available you go Galloday and make the roster try and work.

  31. What's a Drexl? says:
    (link)

    20 team redraft PPR.
    QB (1) stafford/brissett
    RB (2) gurley/west/forte/j.allen (whew good grab by me post draft)/j.williams GB (used to have 2 j.will’s)
    WR (3) crabtree/hill/beasley (yeah get hurt t.will DAL)/a-stew/kerley (he’ll be up to speed soon and vulturing catches for no reason like so many other seasons)/humphries TB
    TE (1) ertz/z.miller
    K gano
    DEF IND (yeah it’s the best of the other total of 5 D’s out there, but who’s laughing when the guys who didn’t draft RB/WR depth get some injuries but had to have those 2 D’s, or bye weeks)
    LB (2) ogletree/s.lee/j.hicks
    CB (2) worley/breeland
    S burnett
    DT (1) buckner
    DE (1) dunlap
    IDP flex (1)
    these are the leagues where waivering is big. early prognosticating big too. a lot of WR from nowhere had decent weeks, and bortles was dropped by somebody who drafted 3 QB’s probably auto’d.

    1. brissett easy drop for bortles? (other than petty/henne pretty much nobody else out there that could get job without an injury, hard to think it’s safe to assume luck’s out longer than bortles keeps job but it’s possible). if stafford doesn’t get hurt i’ll only need this guy for week 7.
    2. this look like best order for dropping humphries: fowler/thompson (CHI)/grant/a.wilson

    3. hold all the NYJ WR over that list or not? (assume fowler is over them, but that won’t be issue as humphries dropped first and my shitty waiver probably doesn’t get fowler anyway)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: yes on 1. That order is good on 2. And yeah, still like someone out of that NYJ group to step up a little.

        (link)

        @Jay: crap tastic, forgot, treadwell was dropped too (redraft league though), where’d he slot into that WR list in #2?

          @What’s a Drexl?: slightly ahead of Thompson, I feel it’s close though.

  32. Blind umps have rights too (seriously their union is that strong) says:
    (link)

    tale of 2 PPR 12 teamer’s. 2 RB total start (no flex)
    1. QB (1) RW3 (man that o-line’s got me nearly worried into grabbing a damn backup)
    RB (2) hunt/cook/duke johnson/both west’s/coleman
    WR (3) a.brown/fitz/DT/parker/maclin/m.lee (was going to drop him for TE maybe, but kinda nearly can’t now)
    TE (1) fiedor
    K mcmanus
    DEF CAR
    with worst waiver here thinking i have no chance at the cohen/k.will/goolladay range but clearly need a TE for this week. guessing duke johnson is the easy first drop, but who’s 2nd if any? (in case i CAN get cohen/k.will/j.allen)

    2. QB (1) brees/rivers
    RB (2) m.gordon/hyde/breida/j.williams GB/kamara/lacy
    WR (3) k.benjamin/dez/crabtree/john brown/wallace
    TE (1) bennett
    K bailey
    DEF NE
    5th waiver. lacy is the easy drop for the probably standard order of cohen/k.will/j.allen but should
    2. mack/gio b/ellington be added to that list? holding every other RB seems to make sense.

    3. is wallace a drop for all of these or stop somewhere? golladay/kupp/richardson/agholor/jj nelson?

    4. is that best order in #3.

    5.NE D was a pile of garbage, also their MLB was hurt, starting streaming D’s, OAK vs NYJ and TB vs CHI are out there? thanks.

      • Blind umps have rights too (seriously their union is that strong) says:
        (link)

        @Jay: oh forgot to mention it’s weekly reset inverse standings and points scored waivers, so literaly no reason to hold waiver, it’s just about grabbing a better WR than wallace, RB than lacy, DEF for this week than NE

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Jay: then yeah, I’d that’s the case, go for it, but I don’t see an upgrade on the lesser guys. I’d just hope for Cohen and Galloday.

    I currently have Will Fuller in my IR spot – am i better off keeping him there and dropping Woodhead, or dropping Fuller and putting Woodhead there? Woodhead is reportedly out 4-6 weeks but I don’t think he’ll ever be healthy and might end up being a headache to keep. Not sure what I want to do here – I would try to drop Woodhead for a guy like Alvin Kamara or Gio Bernard or some other upside 3rd down back

    Hey Jay I’m in a 12 team 1 pt PPR super flex were we have the option to start 2 QB if we want and 1 RB . We get 4 pts a passing TD , 6 pts. a rec TD and 8 points for a Rush TD. I was offered Brady and T West for my Cousins and M Gillislee. MG. is probably my best RB id be trading. My others are J stewart, Duke J, P Perkins, CJ Prosie, James White and S Perine. My other starting QB is Rodgers BTW. Should I pull the trigger being so thin at RB ? he might sub B Powell instead of TWest… still do it?? Thx for the help man !!

    12th waiver weekly inverse standings so YAY me, but mostly when you do well you can’t improve really, which often ends up being bad later in the year. PPR, with full 1 pt per 10 return yards
    QB (1) winston/bradford (had picked him up for a week, but maybe hold?)
    RB (2) howard/hunt/t.west/vereen/forte/j.will GB

    TE (1) rudolpho
    flex (1)
    K streamer (gano)
    DEF streamer (BUF, dropping for one of OAK/CIN/TB this week)

    14 team super flex, hold savage or grab gabbert as handcuff to palmer? standard league where the rushing and receiving are equally worth about half a normal league.
    QB (2) palmer/savage/goff/hoyer
    RB (2) gurley/hyde/coleman/perine
    WR (2) dez/green/cooks/parker/sanu/m.williams
    TE (1) walker/oj howard
    flex
    super flex
    IR woodhead/dixon
    already attempting to drop sanu for cohen (waiver likely won’t work), but since i could use more RB what’s best order of breida/vereen/d-washington OAK/gio bernard/smallwood/tolbert/booker/mckinnon/sims. possibly breida at the top as a hyde owner.

    • Jay

  44. Yr Never Too Old for Balloons says:
    (link)

    14 team PPR. lost fiedor for a long time, and from knowing how concussions work in hockey (i.e. they CAN last a while, but i’ve yet to hear of a franchise intentionally ruling a guy out for 8 min weeks only from having one, literally a DAY after, so it’s possible his whole career might be done, and even uglier problems in real life) this isn’t good for him.
    QB (1) RW3
    RB (2) hunt, crowell, stewart, t.west, c.west, d.was (OAK)
    WR (3) a.brown, parker, fitzgerald, wallace, beasley, meredith (had him stashed, now can drop him, we keep 2 at previous year draft spot so he could’ve been kept in last round, only keep 2 though)
    TE (1) njoku
    flex (1)
    IR fiedor/fuller
    so i got two guys who can drop, meredith for sure, and d-wash maybe.
    cohen/k.williams (who i’ll probably not bid enough on, somebody probably goes at least 25 on cohen).

    1. do need a TE for sure, projector machine has them ranked z.miller/kittle/v.mcdonald, agree with that order?

    2. should i grab TWO of those and drop njoku (projector machine says yes and has njoku 31st TE)

    3. possbly best off with one of those TE and add a backup QB in case SEA’s o-line continues on this awful awful path: a.smith/goff/semien/cutler

    4. drop d-wash for a guy i can probably get cheaper than the big 2 in mack/tolbert or j.allen (as a t.west owner). still probably gotta spend maybe 11 or so for j.allen (guessing). mack more like 5 hopefully.

      @Yr Never Too Old for Balloons: 1.I do agree with that order on the TEs. 2. I think one is just fine. 3. Maybe Cutler, but not excited about it. 4. Yeah, probably Allen there.

    as good a place as any to post this, to compare some crazy FAAB bids, and while i agree generally with the “you gotta get the best guys early” idea, this is just nuts. i saw one guy bid 60% on cohen (and lose to a 70%) and also bid 40% on k.will (and win that one). mack for 21%, i got j.allen in that league for a 12% (and have west). my 21% on cohen was only the 5th highest bid. my 20% on k.will was 2nd too. even freakin c.johnson got a 9% (which is crazy), and that guy didn’t even put in a bid on k.will. what was the guy gonna do if he won both of cohen/k.will for the rest of the entire season, hope every players he wants/needs to win for zero

    In a half PPR league, how would you rank these guys for the season: Corey coleman, k Williams, buck allen, kupp.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Justin: I would say Williams, Allen, Coleman I think. Maybe Kupp ahead of Coleman.

    In a 1/2 point PPR dynasty league, would you prefer Prosise or Carson?

    Thanks.

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @Ron Weasley: would think at this point carson maybe has moved ahead for dynasty. my guess is prosise’s floor will be higher for a while longer though, possibly a longish while.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Ron Weasley: Prosise for now. Carson for the future.

    .2 PPR keep 6. we have RES slots for injured guys, however, we also have roster caps and the injured guys count against those, so it sure doesn’t look like i can keep a-rob. sure am glad i chose him vs k.allen as a keeper this year (was ranked higher by pretty much all dynasty rankings)
    QB (1, max 3): dak/bradford/flacco
    RB (3, max 6) mccoy/montgomery/howard/t.west/smallwood/j.will GB
    WR (3, max 6) jordy/julio/jeffery/britt/fuller/a-rob
    TE (1, max 4) cook/fiedor/ertz
    2 flexes (R/W/T)
    K (1, max 3) hopkins
    DEF (1, max 3) CAR/BAL
    LB (2, max 3) t.smith/ogletree/kirksey
    DL (2, max 3) e.griffen/l.joseph/l.williams (NYJ)
    DB (2, max 3) h.smith/church/neal

    so i gotta drop a-rob for a WR, and probably only smallwood (hold j.will) for a RB, and can stash fiedor while still grabbing a TE, and room for a 2nd kicker with the empty roster spot.

    1. this order for RB: k.will/j.allen/mack/tobert/breida over smallwood but hold j.will over those?

    2. this order for WR: kupp/agholor/richardson/dola/t.benjamin/fowler?

    3. this TE order: kittle/engram/boyle/devalve boss de valve

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @jason batteiger: Good on that RB order, sure. I would move Agholor behind Richardson, but I like that order. And I would move Engram ahead of Kittle, but only slightly.

    14 team keep 2 (a.brown in the 4th for sure, and had been parker in the last) full PPR
    QB RW3 (probably about to drop njoku for backup QB)
    RB (2) hunt/crowell/stewart/both wests/j.allen (so i have BAL/KC locked up pretty good)
    WR (3) a.brown/parker/fitz/beasley/wallace
    TE(1) z.miller/njoku
    flex (1)
    IR fuller/fiedor

    got a trade offer, it weakens my RB depth but seems slam dunk besides
    my z.miller/parker/stewart
    for
    julio (can’ t be kept)/ertz/decker

    looks like i’m doing this one, after i do, just stick with the 5 RB/6 WR or drop wallace to get one of: prosise/d-was OAK

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @The Harrow: only thing is since i drafted hunt/crowell in the 1st/2nd they’d NOT be keeper possibles. so it weakens my keepers, leaving
      ertz (6th)
      RW3 (5th)
      t.west (6th)
      beasley (13th)
      fuller (17th, THIS might become my next keeper at this price)
      also some IDP keeper possibles (we start 2 LB/ 2 DB, 1 DL)
      neal (12th)
      kwon A (9th)
      t.smith (11th)
      burnett S (15th)
      bosa (16th)
      j.davis LB DET (19th)

        @The Harrow: this other owner is punting clearly, he also just did this trade:
        his watkins/l.miller and 2 late picks
        for
        2 earlier picks + sanu + c.johnson (a guy just spent a decent amount of money on him for some reason)

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @The Harrow: Yeah, would have been sweet to make this deal.

  54. The Harrow says:
    (link)

    @The Harrow: ah shit, i didn’t notice it also had me giving away a 3rd getting back a 10th, and i already accepted. i wondered why he’d give up THAT much just for a parker keeper in last round. while this trade very likely makes me likely to win this league a 3rd time in a row, this REALLY hurts me next year, since we can’t keep 1st/2nd rounders i’ll draft those, but then have no 3rd, a.brown in the 4th and 1 more keeper. but for now
    julio >parker (by a LOT)
    ertz > miller (by a LOT)
    decker near equal to j.stew.
    also if ertz ends up holding as a target monster i might be well served by him as a 6th round keeper. of course IF i do that i’ll probably be forced to either go RB/RB again in 1st 2 rounds (like this year with crowell/hunt, and i doubt with keepers hunt ends up back to me at 1.14 like this year), have a.brown in the 4th again, so either have a really weak RB #2 or a really weak WR #2 next year (unless fuller looks to be that as a 17th rounder)

      @The Harrow: got vetoed anyway, and one owner showed up to basically say any settings that even allow such trades are made by and allowed by idiots and got himself thrown out.

        @The Harrow: hate the veto system. I say let the free market decide.

      @The Harrow: Yeah, your assessment is right on. Just worry about this problem after this season.
