Greetings! Doing two posts a week, back-to-back, can be quite stressful, especially considering I’m attempting to give you nothing but my pure unadulterated best. Sometimes it’s necessary for me to spend 30 minutes in a steamy hot shower, letting the water pelt my chiseled body, watching the droplets stream down my crevices (anyone else aroused?) like the tear drops cried by the last 3,000 women who attempted to tame me, while listening to hard hitting rap music, in order for me deliver something I deem acceptable. [Jay’s Note: The longest sentence ever…] So, shout out to Drake (for the first and last time), for dropping hot fiery rocks on Meek Mill the fraud and for inspiring me to touch on every single offense playing skill position player drafted in the first three rounds of 2015. I won’t dig too deep, as the majority of your attention span seems to be shorter than a squirrel’s privates, but if you have any specific questions on the named men, then ask them in the comment section and will reward you with a facial of fantasy football information. Remember to look at some of these players from a dynasty perspective, as I know many of you, much like myself, like to pluck them when they’re young, cheap, and willing… When it comes to Lord Beddict, first of his name, remember to hate, not the player, but the game.

I am Tehol Beddict, and this is Disgrace/Delight, Rookie Edition! Take Heed!

Oh man, oh man, oh man. Not again

Yeah, I learned the game from Grey and Rudy

You can never outdo me

Back to back for the fantasy writers that didn’t get the message

Back to back like I’m on the cover of Lethal Weapon

Back to back like I’m Kukoc ’96, ’97

Whoa, very important and very pretentious

When we look back they may say I’m the greatest ever so pay attention

Yeah, but it’s weighin’ heavy on my conscience

Yeah, so I gotta give you major WR options

My competitors, they be acting hella scary

Hurts my stomach, you gon’ make me stop eating dairy

You gon’ make me buy bottles for f*ckin Matthew Berry

You gon’ make me say Latavius gon average 6 yards a carry

I waited 2 days, Razzball readers, where ya’ll at?

I drove here in a Lincoln, bumpin Fleetwood Mac

Got the Peyote in me, going back to back.

 

Rookies that will Delight: 

Jameis Winston – When I heard NFL coaches that interviewed Winston said he grasped offensive schemes and reads quicker/better than anyone since Peyton Manning, all my concerns were erased. Famous Jameis isn’t the most talented QB I’ve ever witnessed in college by any means, but I expect him to become an above average starting NFL QB within two seasons. With Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, his upside is unlimited, but hey, they said the same thing about Ryan Leaf and Christian Slater.

Marcus Mariota – With elite speed and an accurate arm, Mariota has the ability to accomplish great things in this league. While he lacks the girth and cannon than the quarterbacks he’s often compared to (Colin Kaepernick to name one), Mariota is much smoother running the QB position, and should be far more accurate on intermediate throws. I also love that the Titans drafted one of my faves in Dorial Green-Beckham, who I believe could eventually develop into the greatest receiver in this entire draft class. Kendall Wright, Harry Douglas, and Delanie Walker are also no slouches when it comes to catching the rock. I didn’t mention Justin Hunter, but that’s only because the guy let me down more than the Republican party nominations last season, and I’m afraid to tell you how high I drafted him. Anyways, I believe Mariota will be playing for a new head coach in 2016, so hopefully it’s one handpicked for his skill set, which is a superb one.

Amari Cooper Looked great in roasting star  cornerback Patrick Peterson last weekend, and I officially expect him to end up the team leader in touchdowns and receptions this season. Derek Carr, David Carr’s much less attractive brother, doesn’t seem to have improved much, which is a tad concerning, considering the possible turnaround of the franchise rests on his shoulders. Either way, I like Cooper to have a Reggie Wayne type of career, and Reggie Wayne is bound for the Hall of Fame so take it how you wanna, aaaaahkaaaay?

Kevin White  Love the upside in dynasty leagues, especially since you should be able to get him much cheaper for this wasted season. It will be worth the roster spot though, as this kid is more explosive than Khloe Kardashian’s diarrhea after a gorge fest at Chipotle.

Todd Gurley  Although I believe Gurley will be a very good running back, probably as soon as four games into this season, I’m not sure that I agree that he’s the greatest RB prospect to come along since Adrian Peterson. In fact, he reminded me more of Trent Richardson, which isn’t a shot at Gurley, for Richardson was a superstar. Gurley is one of the rare running backs that can be a three-down back. And in this day and age, that’s saying something. In dynasty drafts, dude should be a late first rounder, or early second at the latest.

Nelson Agholor  Perfect skill set for his employer. Sort of like Razzball.com and myself. I’ll never forget this peon who used to edit the shizz out of my posts for some other fantasy website, and would tell me I’d be good at Barstoolsports.com or whatever that site is called. He literally would remove half of what I had written. Special thanks to Jay for all only taking out 1/10th. Maybe we should start a Razzball 18-and-over section? Only if you’re nasty!

Breshad Perriman  With Perriman being injured throughout all of pre-season, you couldn’t write up a more awful script to the start of his career if you contracted M. Night Shyamalan. Still, Perriman’s expertise is in going deeper than Peter North on a Wednesday night, and that also happens to be Flacco’s favorite thing to do, so I’d say there’s a very solid chance that Perriman becomes a Torrey Smith type.

Phillip Dorsett  I don’t believe the Colts should be drafting offensive players in the first round for the next FIVE YEARS, as we all witnessed their defense torn apart by the Patriots like Richard Gere’s red eye after that gerbil got through with it, but I suppose that could have just been the deflated footballs. Don’t get it twisted, Dorsett is filthy and a true blazer, so he will get his. The only problem is that the Colts have far too many weapons for Dorsett to be trusted on anything resembling a week-to-week basis, at least for this season. Only the Elder Gods know what the future holds.

T.J. Yeldon  Has looked absolutely lost in the preseason, but I expect Yeldon to develop into a solid NFL running back with multiple 1,000 yard season ahead. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

Dorial Green-Beckham  Top-10 talent in the 2nd round? Yes please! Though Mariota isn’t the QB I was hoping would be throwing bombs to this stallion, he will suffice until proven otherwise, as I’ve seen enough of Mettenberger to haunt my dreams for an eternity. Beckham has more upside than any wideout in this draft. Let’s see if his effort matches his skill set.

Devin Funchess  In a great position to succeed as the Panthers have ZERO quality wideouts now that Kelvin Benjamin has gone down. This big bodied behemoth should become a red zone favorite of Cam Newton right out of the shoot.

Ameer Abdullah  Everybody’s drawls got extra moist after witnessing this run, but I’d like to point out that 1) It was against the backups and 2) He was caught from behind by a bigger player. I believe Abdullah will be solid change of pace back, but have serious doubts he will ever carry a full load. Joique Bell is still the guy to own in Detroit.

Maxx Williams  Hasn’t shown much of the explosive, play-making ability he did at Minnesota, but with a lack of special receiving threats in Baltimore, and with Dennis Pitta possibly never playing again, I like Maxx to become one of Flacco’s most trusted targets, possibly this season.

Clive Walford Interesting pick by the Raiders in the 3rd round, as I actually like his game a great deal. Coming out of the University of Miami, Walford could end up the most skilled all-around tight end in this draft. Unfortunately, he’s battled injuries this preseason, so we may not see him ball out until 2016. One to keep an eye on.

Tyler Lockett Lockett is already arguably the most dangerous kick returner in the NFL, as he’s been stunting like his Daddy this preseason, taking two kicks back for scores. It’s doubtful he’ll contribute more than 20 or so catches this season but I’d expect for him to be fantasy playable by 2016.

Tevin Coleman His body and speed has been compared to Chris Johnson and Jamaal Charles. Works for me.

Garrett Grayson Just kidding.

Duke Johnson  Admired his work ethic while at Miami and has a chance to steal the running back job in Cleveland at some point this season. Great motor and huge heart.

Sammie Coates  Should be a nice fill-in for Martavis Bryant during his suspensions over the next couple seasons, and a possible replacement for Wheaton in the next couple years.

Ty Montgomery  Had a horrific final year at Stanford when compared to the previous season. I believed Monty had a real shot at being a first rounder. Great kick returner and he has the inside job on Green Bay’s number three WR job as we speak (write?).

Matt Jones  If you like big bodied, tank-a*sed, hog-life, beastly running backs, then Matt Jones is your man. Dude also has some shiftiness to his game and I expect him to replace Alfred Morris, as soon as 2016.

 

Rookies that will Disgrace:

Kevin White  Anytime you’re a top-10 pick and you’re going to miss your entire rookie season, you’re gonna hit this list. I just said “you’re” 3 times in one sentence. Cool. White’s the only player that made both lists.

DeVante Parker  Love his game but don’t know how well it fits with Tannehill, who’s specialty seems to be throwing 8-yard crossing routes. Also he’s coming off of multiple foot surgeries and has battle injuries his whole career. When has someone like that EVER worked out?

Melvin Gordon – Gordon should end up being okay, but he’s looked horrid in the preseason and the Chargers are fully going the running back by committee route. That absolutely should not be happening if you draft a RB in the top-15. That’s like paying Jean-Claude Van Damme $20 mill to be the lead in Hamlet.

1346348795_6

Sean Mannion  Love all the wasted picks of quarterbacks in the 3rd round made every season.

Devin Smith  Loved him in college, but I don’t like the fit with the Jets, especially in the short term. Hoping I’m wrong about this one though.

Jaelen Strong  Solid value in the 3rd round for Houston, but I have to put a few prominent names in the disgrace section, right? It’s not that I don’t like Strong as a player, I just don’t believe he’ll ever be an elite option at receiver. I’d say his upside is a WR3 in fantasy, which isn’t the worst thing in the world.

Chris Conley  I’m normally a sucker for the freak shows like Conley, but being that his greatest skill is going deep and making incredible grabs… and that Alex Smith can’t throw deep to save his life… it just doesn’t seem like a good fit. Conley isn’t some polished wideout that can hop right into Andy Reid’s system… then again, that WR core is thinner than Ally Mcbeal after a purging, so I suppose there’s a 20 percent chance Conley has a solid year.

Tyler Kroft  Honestly, all I had to do was look at his picture to know he’ll never be a star tight end in this league.

David Johnson – I don’t envision him unseating Ellington and he’s not a power back or goal line runner, so I don’t see a ton of fantasy value. I do like his game and believe he’ll contribute, but probably not ownable unless Ellington goes down.

Jeff Heuerman – Kind of reminds me of a whiter, slower, Heath Miller.

Thank you for joining me for another edition of Disgrace/Delight. It’s been a pleasure, and to be completely honest, nobody has any clue how this class will pan out, but it’s fun speculating, right? I wish they could all make it, but sadly, that’s just not the case. You have to be realistic about these things. As per usual, your questions and comments will be responded to in the section below. Say one thing for Tehol Beddict, he loves talking all things football with his dedicated readers. Have a fabulous weekend.

    Drafted last night, 12 team half PPR.
    QB- Matt Ryan
    RB-Matt Forte
    RB-Andre Ellington
    WR Julio Jones
    WR- Andre Johnson
    TE_ Zach Ertz
    FLEX- Ameer Abdullah
    K- Matt BRyant
    Def- Arizona

    Bench-Allen Robinson, Mike Wallace, Eddie Royal, Bishop Sankey, Brandon Coleman, Ryan Mathews, Blake Bortles.

    Anything to be worried about? I feel that I’m think at the RB but pretty Deep in WR. Not in love with Ellington but RBs were going quick. Where do you think i stand?

      @Chris: Worried about? no. You’re absolutely stacked. I’d drop Bortles for Tyrod if possible. this is an incredible squad, and .5 ppr???? OMG. The Elders have been kind to you, my goodman

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Nice team. You’ve got more WR than you need, and there’s also no point carrying Bortles. If David Johnson’s out there I’d grab him as Ellington insurance. And it’s looking more like Ertz misses time early so you’re going to need a warm body at TE. I rolled the dice on Reed late in my draft–highest ceiling (and lowest floor, which is dying on the field) of the typical late TE crop.

      @Sam: ummmm, for a dynasty squad , this is absolutely filthy! like me, you’re a sucker for the young hog. might not be great this season, but going forward this is monster team and should be solid this season. ooooh, just saw you have Kaep on bench. nice. love the team. nice work

      • Sam says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Thanks Tehol, my thoughts were much the same (kinda up in the air this year but solid moving forwards). And yes, I am a sucker for the young upside… its just more fun to gamble on the upside/unknown!

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

    ok, how’s this one look, start 3 RB, 3 WR, 2 Flex (can be a TE), 1 K, 1 TEAM D, 2 LB, 2 DL, 2 DB, 1 QB. 12 bench, but can have at most 6 RB, 6 WR. standard league.
    QB rivers (8), taylor (24), dalton (30)
    RB- McCoy (keeper 2), Ingram (keeper 3), Hyde (5), Sankey (10), R.Bush (15), K.Davis (18)
    WR – Julio (keeper 1), Allen (6), Robinson (7), Cruz (12), Royal (14), Quick (17)
    TE – Olsen (keeper 4), Cameron (11), Gates (19)
    K Novak (27)
    TEAM D – CAR (21), PIT (29)
    LB – David (9), Wagner(16), Dansby (25)
    DL – C.Jones (13), Ansah (20), C.Johnson (26)
    DB – R.Jones (22), Cyprien (23), Church (27)

    1. probably should’ve remembered before grabbing Quick and maxing out my WR that i wanted to restash Jordy (we have 5 RES’s). If keepers go up to 5 or 6 next year this sound like good idea (but K.Benjamin not good enough also to do this i’m guessing?)? Other WR out there if i lose Quick doing this are Sano/Britt/
    2. I wanted to grab NYJ as backup D, but then saw that they have the same bye as CAR. dropping PIT since i don’t need a backup D that’s this bad. best add a LB #4 or DL #4? Names are Vernon, Bennett, Marks, Tuck, Long, Hardy at DL and Robinson, Jenkins, Burfict, P.Brown, Shazier at LB. I know overall rankings here, but maybe one group of these gets injured more than the other to offset that.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: you have Tyrod Taylor. that’s all that matters

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: that was funny, right? maybe funnier if I let it sit there for a day or 2 hahah. I actually like Quick for this season and for the future . So you can only roster 5 max, including the injured dudes or u need to drop one to pick one up and put on IR and then pickup another wideout?

      – Jordy would have been worth it to do so. Benjamin is also worth it. i would want to have to drop Quick tho. this is difficult. is there anyway around this? Id b nervous in dropping Quick but it might not be the word thing if you could steal one of those guys. Britt should be fine.

      Pitt defense looks horrible. Id grab Bennett and Hardy at d end but def grab shazier. he gonna be a monster this season.

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

        @Tehol Beddict: i can have a total of 6 WR in active slots, which i do right now. others i can add if i lose quick getting jordy are steadman/bowe/lee/shorts/s.johnson/wilson, along with sano or britt. when i drop PIT D i can only grab 1 of hardy/shazier/bennett over PIT. If i get Jordy i RES stash him (hardy might be stashable too, not sure if EXE counts as RES stash in NFL.com, i think it does), and go back and get another WR.

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

          @What’s a Drexl?: and since sites still list taylor’s projections as basically nothing, i probably could’ve gotten him in last couple of rounds, as i did in a 20 teamer as my backup the other day. this goes for at least yahoo/nfl.com.

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

            @What’s a Drexl?: oh yeah, great video you posted the other day, funny seeing the pictures of players fly in and out as you praise or blame them.

          • Tehol Beddict says:
            (link)

            @What’s a Drexl?: right. I couldn’t even freaking find Taylor on there hahahahah. Yahoo gives him ZERO respect. I mean, I really like Quick and u may regret dropping him but theres just as good a chance he barely does anything and you regret it. he’s very talented tho. hmmmm, tough call. I could go either way. to get Jordy in keeper tho id probably do it. would u have any chance of reclaiming him after u dropped him an IR’d Jordy or nah?

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

              @Tehol Beddict: yeah, but not a great one. But i went into this year with ingram/mccoy/olsen/julio as my 4 keepers (front loaded, with no increasing costs, just keep your 4 best players), and next year we’ll have 5 or 6 (we’ll vote on which) keepers. and i almost kept jordy now over olsen, also could’ve gone brady (but it’s 4 pt TD passing league, no reason to keep a QB in these). for next year i’d have to think jordy makes it jordy/julio/mccoy and 2 or 3 out of olsen/allen/robinson/ingram/hyde. I wish we did have round costs, i could slot lavonte david into round 9 or C.jones into 13.

              • Sam says:
                (link)

                @What’s a Drexl?: Don’t sleep on Josh Gordon too (if its a keeper and you’re thinking of rostering a guy for the future who won’t contribute this year). I’d think he has as much upside as anyone (and I’d prefer him over Jordy in a vacuum).

                • Tehol Beddict says:
                  (link)

                  @Sam: interesting take , Sam. i like it and I like you. not in that way

                  (link)

                  @Sam: oh yeah, and this also backdoor answers that question about whether or not NFL.com allows EXE players (hardy right now) to go in RES spots. last year i had gordon in it and it did.

  5. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Joining a 12-team league that incorporates return stats (25 yds/pt) for offensive players, drafting next week. For the most part specialists aren’t worth it, but guys like Landry, Sproles and A. Brown will get a nice boost. Do you think Lockett carves out enough of an offensive role (standard scoring)–say, 400-500 yds and a couple TDs–to matter in that format? Love the kid and thinking of targeting him late.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I play in a league like that also and yea there hardly ever are any guys worth owning other than guys you just mentioned. Lockett may join them shortly. he’s only other guy i can think of other than maybe Hester or Ginn who has value. he’s so nasty. right now, i’d say 500 yards is a big stretch considering our leading receiver last season, wasn’t that close to 1000 yards and we now have Jimmy but I’m rooting for him

  6. S.H says:
    (link)

    Tehol, great read. Would you prefer Gurley or Cooper in a keeper league with PPR. And what do you think of Tyrod? Is he worth picking up. Thanks

    • Sam says:
      (link)

      @S.H: Def depends on needs.. I’d take Gurley because he has much higher updside while Cooper is safer and still has his fair share of upside.

      I’d note though that I think Kevin White and Green-Beckham could be better than Cooper in a couple years. Possibly Parker too, if he stays healthy. Whereas Gurley will rise to the top of the RB ranks, possibly by season’s end.

      • S.H says:
        (link)

        @Sam: Thanks Sam. I was leaning towards Gurley, as I am in a two back league and I have Forsett and Woodhead. White might fall to me in the second round,hopefully.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @S.H: Forsett and woodhead in a keeper? Gurely mon. thats the only way to go, brotha

      • Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @Sam: agree with Sam da man. he sounds like a man who knows what he wants and what he’s talking about

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @S.H: Gurley in keeper tho its riskier with knee as we dont know yet how he’s going to respond. huge upside tho. Cooper is going to beast also but Gurley is the rare 3 down back and should be workhorse for years to come.

      What do I think of Tyrod? you must have missed this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu5pHaBUNRY

    Would u drop Hillman or Terrence Williams and pick up Lockett?
    I have Dez..that’s why I also picked up Williams
    Thx
    10 team standard

      (link)

      @Adam: I actually like Terrance this season. 10 team? Lockett not ownable in 10 team league but I dont think Hillman will too valuable so if you really feel the need you could

    Howdy! I had my draft last night. I am in a 10 team standard league. I just wanted your thoughts. I’m debating dropping Colston and getting Cobb from the Titans.

    QB-Rodgers
    RB1-Lacy
    RB2-Ingram
    WR-Cooper
    WR-Matthews
    F: N. Agholor
    TE-Eifert
    K-Tucker
    D- Baltimore
    BN: M. Stafford, G.Tate, M. Colston, T. Mason, R. Mathews

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @William: really solid team there, Prince Williams. I like the way you do it. no need to pick up Cobb right now now in 10 teamer, but you have plenty of wideouts if you really want to move forward with it

  9. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Tehol, draft complete. Not exactly ecstatic with the results…10-team standard scoring league, starting roster positions noted below. At the #2 pick I grabbed my 2RBs first, than Peyton;

    QB- Peyton
    RB- AP, Demarco
    WR-Ty Hilton, Amari Cooper, Pierre Garcon
    TE- Bennett
    Flex- J Randle
    D-STL
    K-Tucker
    Bench- Charles Johnson, Roddy White, Wheaton, Sankey, A Williams, O Daniels

    What ya think? I already know my weakness is WR…one person in my league took 4WRs as first 4 picks & hes actually rather good in our league as he has finished first a few times but never attempted this strategy of all WRs to start the draft..

    I’m sure I’ll be back with my waiver wire options when I assess whats available but until then, is there any roster maintenance to be done in prep for week 1? How about my defense, I have STL whos matchup against Seattle ain’t great week 1. Problem is, I’d have to roll with 2 defenses since I probably don’t want to drop STL yet. Options below, or just start STL instead?

    -Carolina @ Jax
    -Cleveland @NYJ
    -GB @ Chi
    -SF v. Minn
    -TB v. Tenn (both available)

    Unfortunately waivers are FAAB which I need to read up on that (Son posted a good article I’ll read). Thinking it will be a little more difficult to stream defenses. Jay recommended streaming in quarters (pickup defense to use for a few weeks)..but I suppose I could bid $0 or $1 each week on defense & hope to get one of the top weekly projections available..

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: First off, Rams defense is good play against seattle offense with weak offensive line. could have a field day. so stick with them.

      Your receivers actually aren’t too bad, bro. Ty and Cooper should ball out and Garcon should bounce back and if not you have Johnson, a nice tight end, and great group of running backs!

    *** I posted this in your other thread, but it appears you treat 3 day old threads like your ladies. Dey in da wind. So Sorry for the double post ***

    Tehol, you snake charmer, you. I’m going to come clean. It’s not that I disliked you, but for some reason I don’t recall ever posting or asking anything in any of your previous contributions. I recall reading your initial post in beisbol and you got hammered. I kind of felt bad. Who knew that it may have subconsciously activated a missile command-like defense system to your charms. Then the other day I listen to the podcast with you and Jay. It’s the first time I hear either of your voices. I was thinking “this Tehol guy sounds like he is on a Quaalude-Valium cocktail”, which might not be a bad thing. So you post this article the other day and I read it. Then i click on your ode to Tyrod video. You start going through the reasons, specifically the “why do you think we got this guy” bit and I’m cracking the fudge up. I mean I’m a flippin’ Fins fan and I’m dying. Slowly but surely by the end you cracked the code to my unit. I mean my missile defense. I get it now. I am now a full blown Tehol fan and will be all up on your shizz.

    Now to da realz. Let me ask you about my RB situation. I have Miller, Forte, Hamster Martin and D. Freeman. I’m hoping Forte can give me one more productive year before falling off. But I am concerned and feel I could need help. Do you think Freeman as a 4th is ok and see how it plays out? Waiver goes in effect manana.

    Side note: your crib looks like the type of place a porn studio would rent out for a day of filming a scene. So……congrats! it’s why i kept looking at that candle in the background with a suspicious eye.

      @2qbn: I’m sorry. I still should be checking those others. the email notification system is a little odd so I usually just peep da last ones, ya feel me.

      That was maybe the greatest comment I’ve read Razzball’s history. No need to feel bad. I believe it was year or two ago and some numbers guys were upset that I believed I had just as much success without analyzing numbers. my argument was Bryce Harper should have been drafted over Adam Jones and those clucks couldn’t take it. As far as this year goes there have been only 2 people that harass me on baseball side hahahha and I’ve hired a private detective so that one day I may find them and do unspeakable things to them. The hate fuels me and I’ve been pretty good at fantasy sports so its all good.

      I’m glad you enjoyed recently. It means a lot and now I expect to be best friends for the rest of our lives if the Elders will it. ANYWAY

      I think I have Miller under ranked and I’m going to bump him up a bit. the Dolphins simply have nobody to even share caries with dude. I seem to be higher on Freeman than most. I mean, how is he not fairly involved in this offense? Even if splitting carries with Coleman, Freeman should catch a bunch of balls. Buuuut, I’m assuming this isn’t a ppr league or you would have mentioned. I still think he’s a decent number 4 tho and Martin is everyones Golden boy as a number 3 right now so that should work out. Forte is more valuable in ppr obviously, if not the most valuable running back, and is still legit in standard.

      I don’t believe he falls off this season and I believe the upside on Miller is very high and could and should make up for any drop off in Forte play. Who’s on waivers? I’m here all night for you, big dog.

      Yea, I’m going to start calling agencies soon to shoot porn here. give them a discount if they give me a couple scenes. good to have you on board and let me know who’s available at running back

        @Tehol Beddict: You nailed it. It was that you posted on how you felt about certain guys, like Harper, without bringing all kinds of numbers. They lost their shizz. It’s very similar to the guy who stopped reading after seeing how high you ranked The Rod. But in both cases, your mind made a mental note to not forget. The hate fuels you. I see that like Palpatine.

        On to bidness. It’s a half-ppr league. Sounds like you think Freeman is better suited for that. If so, all I can say is “alright alright”.

        Waiver: Andre Williams, Jonas Gray, David Johnson and other schmo ho’s like that. Damn! Those names suck.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @2qbn: it’s like, I should have worded it differently instead of coming off like know it all douche but i mean FUKKKKK, its Bryce Harper. what numbers are necessary. healthy this season. look what happens. its not rocket science.

          I truly believe Tyrod will put up rock solid numbers and Matthew Berry just made his bold prediction Tyrod would be a top 15 hahah. everyone on the train.

          It’s weird, everyone liked Freeman last year where I didnt really see the value
          now everyone dislikes him but Coleman didnt show anything till this past week against the scrubs. how could it be anything less than full time share? and Freeman excels at catching the ball. so unless I’m missing something, which is possible hahah, i think he should be ok or at least should def be owned until proven otherwise. I’ve been drafting him

          • 2qbn says:
            (link)

            @Tehol Beddict: I did notice Berry claiming he now sees the light with Tyrod. Weird timing. *cough*

            I think you’re gonna be close to right on Tyrod than wrong. With McCoy already rubbin’ Tussin’ on his tenderloin, I could see the Bills possibly passing a bit more. It’s why I took Watkins as my WR3. If he stays healthy, I feel he is primed for bounce back. Uh oh! There I go feeling

            Keep up the good work. On to weeeeeeeek 1!

    What side wins this trade in PPR?
    E.Manning, ODB, and Gurley for Brees, Megatron, and J.Stewart

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Sully: gods, thats tough. I wanna say Gurley ODB side but IF megatron and stewart stay healthy all year it would probably change. thats just a HUGE if, you know. id be attracted on either side

    Hey guys, thanks for all the great articles and posts. Ive been a big fan over the past few years..keep it up!

    I did my draft last night for 12-team H2H PPR league and would like your input/thoughts or if you see any improvements that could be made. Thanks!

    QB- Cam Newton
    WR- A. Jeffery
    WR- TY Hilton
    WR- Eric Decker
    RB-Adrian Peterson
    RB-Carlos Hyde
    TE-Greg Olsen
    W/RB/TE- Michael Floyd
    BN- Reggie Bush, Terrence Williams, Duke Johnson, Percy Harvin, and Charles Sims

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @David: Davey Boy!!!! I like what you’ve done here. Glad you enjoy the website. That means a lot.

      Reggie Bush may or may not be ownable but its ppr and I’m hoping he catches a bunch of balls. you need your rbs to stay healthy or PRAY that Duke Johnson comes up and snatches the job in cleveland. otherwise keep an eye on waivers. I’m higher on Terrance Williams than most and am lower on Decker than most so it will be interesting to see how that plays out. Olsen is top 2/3 tight end but you may want to pick up Tyrod Taylor off waivers for backup QB spot as Cam Newton could have problems this season. nice work

      • David says:
        (link)

        Awesome, good looking out. Right now Mariota, Carr, Smith, and Winston are all on the waivers..I was leaning towards Mariota or Smith, what do you think? And if so, who would you drop?

        • David says:
          (link)

          Also, my worries were my thin RB staff and I’m in an RB hungry league…RBs still available include Denard Robinson, Jonas Gray, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Chris Johnson. Worth it to add/drop anyone before the start of the season?

          • Tehol Beddict says:
            (link)

            @David: Gray has most upside. Denard should get a decent amount of playing time if you desperate

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @David: Ummmm Tyrod Taylor. is he owned? otherwise probably Smith which is tough to say. Mariota is intriguing with running ability.

          • David says:
            (link)

            Yes he is available. You would take him over all the other QBs listed? I was thinking to drop Charles sims for Jonas Gray.

            I’ll keep an eye on the QBs but I feel like I should lock down some RBs early..thoughts?

            Thanks!

            • Tehol Beddict says:
              (link)

              @David: I’m still intrigued by Sims. everyone was on his nuts last season now nobody talking about him. I’m confused. should be solid in ppr. Gray I honestly have no clue on right now. Belichick screws everything up

  13. Timmy Shankenstien says:

    Would you trade away Eifert and DMC to get Jordan Cameron? I have Rudolph on my bench (may drop) and my RBs are Hill, Gore, Spiller. .5 ppr league, 12 team. Thanks!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Timmy Shankenstien: probabyly not considering I have Rudolph and Eifert ahead of Cameron. thats just me tho

    HUGE trade offer is on the table and I need your help.

    10-team PPR 3-Keeper league where RBs get 2 points for every 10 rushing attempts and passing TD’s are 6 points.

    QB: Big Ben
    RB: Lacy
    RB: Gore
    WR: Julio
    WR: Cooks
    TE: Miller
    Flex: Forsett
    BN: A. Johnson
    BN: Abdullah
    BN: Spiller
    BN: Decker
    BN: Woodhead
    BN: D. Parker
    BN: Boldin

    The trade offer is:
    I Give: Lacy and Julio
    I Get: Luck, Bell and Maclin

    Would you do this deal? Is it even close?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Ron: Damn, this is insane! but then, what are you supposed to do with Big Ben? Can you flip him for anything or get another piece in the deal. I have Bell ahead of Lacy but Julio is my number ONE wideout, MUCH higher than Maclin. Luck would probably sway it but you have no need at QB, tho getting Luck in keeper would be AWESOME. is there any way we can flip BIg Ben?

      • Ron says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I wouldn’t be able to flip him right now but maybe if a QB went down in the season.

        Would it be an easier decision if I convinced the other team to take Gore instead of Lacy?

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Ron: in a word, yes

  15. William says:

    Howdy! I had one question. I really don’t know what to do for my flex for week one of the regular season. Agholor or Tate? I really appreciate it!

    QB-Rodgers
    RB1-Lacy
    RB2-Ingram
    WR1-Cooper
    WR2-Matthews
    F- Tate/ Agholor
    D-Baltimore
    TE-Eifert
    K-Tucker
    Bench: Colston, Stafford, T. Mason, CJ Spiller, Ryan Mathews.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @William: Tough call as Tate is MOST trusted and has earned that decent matchup at San Diego but that Agholor matchup is incredibly sexy against a wack Falcons secondary. Id probably still have to rank Tate ahead of him for right now

    Which D
    Arizona vs No
    Detrot @SD
    Cinncy @oakland
    Kansas city @ houston
    Sf vs minnesota
    New england vs pitt

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @MAshers: thats all ugly but Kansas City has most stars with ability for playmaking but are missing top corner, Sean Smith. I feel like Niners are being underrated here with hype overhype of vikings. Id probably just go Bengals tho as it seem safest best to me even tho its on the road

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: first off, super cool name.

      1. VERY TOUGH CALL. I’m a Latavius guy but I’ll go with the even younger Gordo
      2. Ughhh Ivory way older. def not sold on Randle so Id maybe go Ivory but this would could bite me.
      3. Coleman You have to pick only 1??
      4. Sanders
      5. Parker is probably smart choice but Id go Dorial
      6. Coleman
      7. Carr
      8. Taylor
      9. McCoy tho I’m coming around on Miller
      10. Hyde

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Doc: I’m a big Prater guy and I like Detroit to move the ball pretty well. Seabass is always nice option at home. I might go there due to chargers ball control offense taking away opportunities for detroit

  21. Shark says:

    I watched that Abdullah run you linked. Ameer got caught by Revis (who is definitely 1st string) because Ameer was angling away from another defender, right into the angle Revis was taking. I’m glad he’s officially 3rd on the depth chart behing Riddick LOL, because I think I got him cheap… although not as cheap as you seem to feel he needs to be!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Shark: oh, I like the guy! i just think he’s a tad overhyped and Bell is under hyped. Abdullah looks great in passing game tho so that will def help
