Folks! I spent a lovely weekend in the fine state of Minnesota breaking bread with the in-laws. Nothing is more refreshing than a three day weekend, except for a four day weekend, which I did not have. On Sunday I went and saw my beloved Buccaneers play the Vikings at the almost brand new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. While the result of the game made me question why I even still give a shit about this team that breaks my heart in one way or another every year since they won the Super Bowl in 2003, U.S. Bank Stadium is a work of art. The natural early afternoon lighting was an amazing touch to a modern marvel of architecture. The Stadium feels so open for an enclosed structure. I was moderately buzzed by the time I felt like eating, so I grabbed chicken strips without really exploring. But, I later saw people walking around with fantastic looking Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches, artery-clogging nachos, pretty much any stadium cuisine you could desire. I highly recommend checking it out if you ever find yourself in the area.

Here are my rankings for Week 4…

    I feel like Kareem Hunt is a perfect sell high…maybe I am high for thinking that. What WR would you target for him now.

      @Tubular Dude: I wouldn’t trade Hunt, he really seems like the real deal ROS. If you are sticking to your guns I’m targeting Mike Evans or Odell Beckham Jr. and would accept nothing less than tier 1.

      @Jake: I think Tampa bounces back in a huge way this week, a good few of their starters were out with the flu last week and the Giants are sputtering and turnover/sack prone. And Cincinnati against the Browns

    CJ Prosise out multiple weeks with an ankle injury. Bump Carson, who is also a good pass catcher.

    NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports C.J. Prosise will miss Week 4 against the Colts with an ankle injury.

    Notice D. Adams is slightly above Hogan this week im trying to decide between the 2 just wondering your take on the 2 of them . Thanks

      @Jake: I’m presuming a pretty easy day for the packers which is why I have Adams slightly ahead.

    Glad you enjoyed your visit up here in MN! Gotta say though… I wouldn’t go around complaining about your sporting disappointment in this state! That’s the only topic that can make people mean up here.

      @Bryce Krispie Treats: Minnesota has the nicest fans to be honest. Soldier field can get rough in Chicago but you can joke around with Viking fans, especially if they are winning haha.

    Drop C. Davis or David Johnson? Need a roster spot.

    Is Drake the handcuff to Ajayi ?

      @Jake: he’s the one I’d rather have

    David Johnson related question. The team who drafted him also lost ARob and Kevin White in the same week. He’s now 1-2 and getting desperate. He sent out a league wide message saying he was available for an every week starter at RB. What are your thoughts about where his value might lie, generally? There’s so much uncertainty to his return, it’s hard to gauge. I tend to think he’ll be back closer to Week 9 than Week 15. Was thinking of sending out a Blount or Smallwood offer with Hogan as a sweetener… Too much?

    My roster in a 12-team, half-PPR… Team is currently 2-1 and 2nd place in overall points

    QB Winston, Big Ben
    RB Hunt, Blount, Smallwood, D. Foreman, Doug Martin
    WR Evans, Diggs, Landry, Hogan, Benjamin
    TE Ertz
    K Prater
    DST KC

      @Rocky: I agree with you, yeah I think that’s fair

  12. Milkman says:

    Where do you rank Powell with Forte ruled out?

    Worth adding Powell and dropping either Chris Johnson, Kenny Britt or Corey Davis?

    Need some guidance. My two RBS have been very disappointing in Crowell and Lamar Miller

      Mb says:

      @Milkman: I’d drop Corey Davis for him

    Would you trade T. Coleman and Benjamin for D. Adams? Thanks

      @Steve: I don’t know yet. I don’t know the extent of Adam’s injury. He could be back next week or it may be more complicated. All we know is he can move everything
