I mean, after Sunday Night Football‘s barn burner, could my heart take Jets vs. Cardinals? Uh, yeah. Apparently there was room to spare. I’m not quite sure what else to say about whatever it is I watched last night, but it involved Patrick Peterson dressing up as a tyrannosaurus rex. So there’s that, I guess. Yeah, sure, it might have been interesting to see if the Jets could pull off an upset against a pretty meh Cardinals team as a reason to delude themselves into thinking their season wasn’t over yet… But then you remember it’s the Jets in prime time and you wonder what you did to deserve this. And that’s not even including the fact that you have to deal with Chris Berman. I’m going to get five more jobs and work really hard. Then I’m going to save my money and invest some of it. Then I’m gonna cut my costs down as much as I can. Then I’ll be rich. And then I’m going to launch a satellite into space that has a high-powered rail gun on it. And then I’m going to shoot it at Chris Berman. Oh, and David Johnson is the man. That is all.

 

John Brown – 5 REC, 54 YDS, 10.8 AVG, 13 LONG, 7 TGTS. Quite the disappointment in fantasy so far. He’s usually drafted as what, a WR2? He’s had only one 100-yard game so far, no touchdowns, and if you take out his big game against the Rams, his season long is 19 yards. Seriously, I haven’t see a man named John Brown massacre so many people this badly since Pottawatomie…

Ryan Fitzpatrick16/31, 174 YDS, 5.6 AVG, 1 INT, 55.0 RTG and 1 CAR, 2 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 2 LONG. Fitzmagic? More like sh*t’s tragic, amiright folks? I wonder though, do you think it’s Fitzpatrick’s cerebral plan to just hold onto the ball for a really long time and, just before getting blown up by two defenders, to duck his head and try to get a headshot personal foul? I mean, say what you want, but at least the man has a plan.

Matt Forte9 CAR, 19 YDS, 2.1 AVG, 8 LONG and 1 REC, 3 YDS, 3.0 AVG, 3 LONG, 3 TGTS. So what hilarious thing happens now? I’m assuming this is a joke, right?

David Johnson22 CAR, 111 YDS, 5.0 AVG, 3 TD and 3 REC, 27 YDS, 9.0 AVG, 10 LONG, 6 TGTS. I haven’t seen a Johnson benefit so much from the sudden appearance of a hole since November 22, 1963.

Brandon Marshall3 REC, 70 YDS, 23.3 AVG, 36 LONG, 6 TGTS. Theory: Someone convinced Fitzpatrick that when you get in the red zone, you throw to the other team.

Charone Peake5 REC, 43 YDS, 8.6 AVG, 14 LONG, 10 TGTS. That’s peake Charone if I ever saw…

Geno Smith4/6, 31 YDS, 5.2 AVG, 1 INT, 39.6 RTG and 1 CAR, 2 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 2 LONG. “Oh you think Fitz is bad? OKAY motherf*ckers, check this sh*t out.” – Todd Bowles.

    How do you think my one waiver a week order should go. I will waive Sims.
    Asiata,Rodgers,Ajayi and Powell.
    Further problem, I also need a TE. Hunter and Fiedorowicz are available. Olson is on bye and Ebron is hurt.
    Further problems, Prescott is the only starting QB on the wire, I have Manning next week on bye. We start 2 QB. I’d waive Anderson.
    So I’m asking do you see any of these free agents as a must grab ros? My long term worries are at RB. Short term is TE. For week 8 is QB. I hope you can figure this gibberish out. Lol.
    My RB are Ware, Lativious, Smallwood and Booker.
    Thanks, man.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Packers: I’d go for Ajayi. Probably Hunter there. And yeah, Dak for Anderson is fine. I’d probably prioritize Ajayi, then Prescott, and then figure out TE with what ever’s left.

    Keep or drop Arian Foster? On the one hand, it was his first week back from injury and they had the second string out for a lot of the game…on the other hand, I can’t exactly picture a scenario in which Jay Ajayi doesn’t have an increasing role in the offense after Sunday.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nate: Hold for now. Ajayi may be legit, but I want to see a few more weeks of RB1 numbers before I commit to dropping Foster.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i doubt we have a repeat of last year’s d.freeman here (meaning RB you watch for at least 2 weeks and clearly see he’s not even best guy at his own team, drop him less than 3-5 days before he suddenly becomes a top 10 ROS RB). this is same guy who went 13/42 as starter in previous week. and did much much worse when sharing time before that.

    .5 PPR

    Should I offer DeAndre Hopkins and Ryan Matthews for Marvin Jones and Jonathan Stewart? I mainly want to get rid of DeAndre since he’s been a bust so far as my first pick and my friend is interested in Hopkins.

    Or Hopkins for Marvin Jones and Brandon Marshall?

    I also may offer Hopkins and LeSean McCoy or Eddie Lacy for Marvin Jones and David Johnson if that’s more realistic?

    As you can see..I am not happy with hopkins haha.

    Thanks as usual!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @WhenYourUncleGetsOffTheGrillToShowYouHowtightHisSpiralIs: I would not. Jones has not done much since his big 200 yard game and Stewart is just getting back. I’m intrigued by the second deal, but I still think Hopkins is slightly better here. The David Johnson deal seems okay. But I think you’re still selling low here.

      And yeah, much deserved… he hasn’t done much this year, but that’s more on Osweiler. They are a playoff team, so I can’t imagine them going the rest of the season without gameplanning more around their best weapon.

        @Jay:

        Okay so I am in dire need of RB now. I also have Lacy as my rb2 but I just found out he’s out several weeks. So my friend now offered me the following:

        Marshall, J Stewart and Spencer Ware for Hopkins.
        Should I do it or still hold onto Hopkins?

      @Wilsonian: 1 – probably Ajayi, but I’ll be honest, I haven’t watched that game yet, so I’ll have a better ranking come tomorrow night. 2 – Thinking Henry here, that hamstring is still bothering Gates.

          @ryanoger: Yeah, this is where handcuffs become issues. Most handcuffs are fine, like Spencer Ware. Guys like Morris aren’t worth the trouble, simply because if they got everyday snaps, backs like him would still be in the Darkwa category for example. I’d want Ajayi here over Morris.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dan: I think it’s fair, and though ‘d probably hold, if you think you have enough RB depth, it’s a solid upgrade.

    12 team PPR

    QB – Luck
    RB – Howard/Freemaan
    WR – Robinson/Cooks
    TE – Ertz
    Flex – Maclin
    K – McManus
    Def – Rams
    BN – Demary/Hill/Riddick
    BN – T.Coleman/T.Benjamin/Rudolph
    BN – Woods

    Demary/Ertz for Lamar Miller got declined. is there an offer you’d throw back at him? Not a lot of owners with both a TE weakness and a RB strength that would make sense for me.

    QB – Wilson
    RB – Bell/Miller
    WR – Jones/Pryor
    TE – Reed
    Flex – Parker

    Bold move…trade Jordan Reed for Hunter Henry?

    Reed’s concussions mean he’s unfortunately at high risk of getting another season-ender if he takes the field again this season. Do you agree with Reed’s risk?

    Would you target someone else?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve: I… would probably hold. I think you can stream just as well as holding onto Henry. Not sure why the Henry hype is getting this big.

      • robbyrobdu says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Because TE is shallow…because he is out playing Gates…because he was the Mackey award winner…because Rivers loves using his TE and it looks like Gates has finally fallen off of the cliff

        Why wouldn’t he be getting hyped a little…especially since so many can simply add him…having top TE’S wins leagues…with Reed looking awfully iffy with his concussion history Gronk, Graham, Olsen, Kelce are the only TE’S proven over time…Miller is finally reaching potential…that’s 5 players…and at any moment Gronk could go down, KC has looked happy to load up on the run and Conley is getting more targets by the week…Cam isn’the looking very Cam and has been forcing passes downfield…once Russ’s legs get back going he may use Graham less….very fluid aND important position.

        Hope that helps the confusion.

    • robbyrobdu says:
      (link)

      @Dash:

      Good team for sure…Eli looking like a hold with ODB rounding into form…I liked how Roger Lewis looked last week and Eli is always better when he has options…he is not a zone in on one wr type guy.

      I love Maclin but his name might be worthelpful more than his reality…I would try and package him with Julius for an Elite TE…Gronk preferred…not sure what is up in HOU but Fuller looked good before going down…and in a lost season I think they HAVE to feature Coleman when he returns. So you have options…Pryor is a solid #2 and that allows you to flex Ajayi.

      I would be trying to move on from Asiata and Jennings as well…maybe there is a team that lacks depth at RB? Or maybe the Julius package could use a RB as well or instead…

      I think you should have a QB on the bench so you aren’t forced to use a waiver claim in the eventesting Eli gets hurt or falls on his face…perhaps Mariota is available…his legs are giving him a very interesting floor and TEN offense in general is looking pretty good. He has recievers that can and will catch.

      If you do stand pat that is a competitive team…it just doesn’the look like a 100% winner to me, hope I was helpful, happy trading and hunting!

    Jay would you drop Tevin Coleman for dion lewis in a PPR league , I have Mccoy, David Johnson, and Howard, depth is always good. Also would you drop Terelle Pryor for Meridith. My WR consists if Robinson, Maclin,A.Jeffery , Pryor and Matthews

      @sh: Not at the moment. I like Coleman here. And yeah, that’s an okay switch for Meredith.

    waiver questions, assume 2 RB/3 WR/1 flex unless noted.

    1. 20 teamer, have rivers and gabbert. best order for long term (this year only): l.jones/g.smith/gabbert?

    2. 20 teamer. have kelley as worst RB (but don’t need to start him this week): kelley/k.davis/m.davis? and if i can’t get l.jones or g.smith should i drop gabbert to hold kelley and attempt one of the davis’s? also have l.bell/howard/langford/CAP.
    2.A gotta assume CAP is better hold for season than either davis yes?

    3. 12 teamer. start 2 RB, 3 WR no flex. have all PIT/CHI RB and yeldon (yuck). will have to start yeldon twice on bye weeks. team is 6-0 and most points by a LOT. have pitta as backup to jimmer, so easy drop. best order of these for ROS: (i would show who these guys have in weeks 8-9 as those are the CHI/PIT bye weeks, but i’ll just assume i make playoffs and it’s more about later playoff week upside anyway), c.thompson/gillislee/morris/d-was (DET)/rainey/asiata/b.cunningham/forsett. rank about 4 of these i’ll make likely to get one of them.

    4. 12 team, attempting to trade one of j.matthews/meredith/crabtree but till that works out should i drop my WR 6 (woods) (we start 2 WR and 1 flex) for what order of: k.davis/m.davis/j.rodgers/d-was (DET). other wise i get to start l.murray/booker/yeldon (just dropped ajayi last week)

    5. why the hell isn’t draughn the one starting at SF anyway if hyde is out?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mordacious Levator: Gabbert, Jones, Smith. And then I’d say Davis, Kelley, M. Davis there. And yeah, I think CAP into next year is the hold there.

      I think on 3 it’d be Forsett, Rainey, Thompson, Asiata. On 4, hmm, probably Davis, or if you do 1 or it’s a different league, probably Jaquizz. 5 Draughn has limits probably. I’m looking forward to Maher’s handcuff report tomorrow to shed some light.

      • Mordacious Levator says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i’m assuming in #4 you meant k.davis, not m.davis.

        this i didn’t get “if you do 1 or it’s a different league, probably Jaquizz”. i start cj anderson and weekly have to start one of l.murray/yeldon lately. so unless/until i can trade a WR for a RB i’ll need to stick with one of them or best of that group listed, so it looks like you’ve got them k.davis/jacquizz/m.davis/d-was.

        in #1, just hold gabbert then. ok.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Mordacious Levator: Yeah, totally. I was referring to your question, it wasn’t clear if that was the same league as the Gabbert team.

          • Mordacious Levator says:
            (link)

            @Jay: gabbert was a 20 teamer, last few questions were for 12’s. gabbert probably not owned in many 12 teams even if 2 QB’s. unless deep benches. really as long as rivers stays healthy the 2nd QB won’t play but one week.

              • Mordacious Levator says:
                (link)

                @Jay: guessing you don’t much by the possible fitzmagic demotion as much as gabbert getting that job back.

                • Jay

                  Jay says:
                  (link)

                  @Mordacious Levator: Both are kinda shitty situations. I don’t think Geno is the answer any more than Blaine, but in a league that deep, I think Blaine has the slightly better chance at snaps.

                  • Mordacious Levator says:
                    (link)

                    @Jay: yeah, in 3#, just realized ivory not owned either, how high does he slot as yeldon owner, possibly highest i would think.

    I’m all over the place now and want to make sure I execute my moves correctly –

    Waiver 1 – Ajayi
    Waiver 2 – Montgomery

    Free Agents to consider in order – Jacquizz Rodgers, Terrance Williams, Justin Forsett, Torrey Smith, Kendall Wright, Devontae Booker, and Adam Humphries (Vince Jackson IR)

    Do I use a waiver on Montgomery or try to get him as a FA or ignore him totally unless I want to use him this week in my FLEX? (I currently have Britt there)

    Where does Kniles Davis go in my list above?

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      .5 PPR

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Because of the PPR factor, you probably want Ty here. Your order is good, with Kniles going ahead of Smith. Maybe ahead of Forsett.

    WR- AJ /BMarsh/ TY Evans //Ty Williams Moncrief
    RB DMurr /Howard/ McKinnon/ Coleman/ D Henry/ Dion on IR
    TE Walker Eifert

    I give howard williams and coleman for gurley and clay

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @jayhawks24: Yeah, you’re giving up a lot, but I think it’s worth it to try and buy low on Gurley. Probably Britt if you need to.

      • jayhawks24 says:
        (link)

        @Jay:
        Appreciate ya, man! I love having peeps like you & your contributors to bounce ideas off of. That’s what I was thinking. Gurley has been solid RB2 & I think TDs will come showing RB1 upside. Essentially trading Howard for Gurley since with those 4 @ WR only 3 weeks one of them isn’t flexing. Those weeks I can stream or roll out Moncreif or Eifert/Clay matchup depending. Plus still option to package a TE & Moncreif, spread out my Colts action.
        Keep up the good work, sir!

    Jay,

    Would you try to move Ryan Mathews for James White in a PPR league? I’ve read a few articles that say Dion Lewis might not even take the field until December, so he’s not an imminent threat for playing time.

    Thanks a lot.

      @Jimmy: I like White, but I like Mathews more. And np!

  41. Nick says:
    (link)

    Which side do you like here Jay?

    Julio Jones and Tevin Coleman for Allen Robinson and Matt Forte.

    It’s a PPR league.

    Much appreciated.

        @Jay: swapping Wentz for Eli…. Dak got waivered. Bortles is an FA so could stream for Eli’s bad matchups

    1qb PPR. I own Palmer and Eli, cousins, Tyrod and Wentz are the highest own free agents. Would you stream QB (Cousins this week) or hold Palmer for potential ROS upside in weeks with better matchups.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: So I grabbed Dalton but considering Big Ben may not play for a few weeks, would you rather pickup and have Carr for future weeks…or just hold with Dalton & stream week to week since there are many options on waivers (all from my prior post are on waivers – Carr was dropped his morning)

    To fill each other’s bye issue
    With an agreement to trade back after Sunday

    After some waiver madness this morning in my league – My roster is now the following:
    .5 PPR

    QB – Matt Stafford
    RB – Rashad Jennings, Matt Jones, DeAndre Washington, Arian Foster, Knile Davis, Dion Lewis
    WR – AJ Green, Jarvis Landry, Allen Robinson, Ty Montgomery, Kenny Britt, DeVante Parker
    TE – Greg Olsen
    K- Mason Crosby
    DEF – Minny

    Is my drop for a bye week TE DeAndre Washington? Also, what are your thoughts on Jeremy Hill? Is he someone to target as a buy low? I was thinking of throwing the following trade out there:
    A-Rob and Parker for Jeremy Hill and Alshon Jeffrey or Julian Edelman

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Probably. Hill is peretually a buy-low candidate. It’s fair, but I’d rather have the A-Rob side. I might try A-Rob+Davis for Jeremy Hill and Edelman and see what happens.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I’m also playing the last place team this week – so I might not need a TE (4-10 points on avg.) and can hold on to DeAndre, but I feel like I’d be tempting fate.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Yeah, don’t tempt fate I think.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: So I sent DeAndre Washington and Allen Robinson for Edelman and Hill – here’s to hoping Hill does his 2nd half surge and whatever injury he has isn’t serious

              • William Hung says:
                (link)

                @Jay: Now I’m in a bit of a pickle with my TE situation… not sure who my drop is:

                My RB/WRs shape up like this now:
                AJ Green, Edelman, Landry, Kenny Britt, DeVante Parker, Montgomery

                Hill, Jennings, Jones, Foster, D-Lewis, Knile Davis

                Whoever I drop for a TE I may not get back – maybe Lewis is my drop?

                • Jay

                  Jay says:
                  (link)

                  @William Hung: Yeah, it’s either him or maybe Britt. So probably Lewis.

    trying to flip one of crabtree/meredith/j.matthews for a RB since i have cj anderson and then one of yeldon/l.murray and now kniles davis having to start weekly in 12 team PPR (puh lease come back d.lewis!). laid out this list of guys in message board trade block i’d be willing to move one of those for, and mentioned i’d prefer to NOT move landry or green to get a top 5 or better RB (their per game points line up with top 5 RB’s).
    this list:freeman/stewart/ingram/m.jones/michael/crowell/miller/t.west/gurley/gordon/riddick/gore/coleman. clearly i’m targeting teams opposite to me, weak in WR, strong with extra RB’s. sent out a crabtree for gurley our rosters work out well for this. what about green for d.murray (in this case i’d probably have to send over a RB + green and he’d send d.murray + draft pick or something like that (clearly the WR he could have in this range are simply beat by FA guys like woods/d-jax, i’d rather have those than royal/t.austin/wheaton.

      @Mantis Tobaggan MD: I’d try to package Crabtree and Meredith for something solid. Maybe see how much Ingram is. Prolly have to add another. Or check out Melvin. Might be enough to get him.

        @Jay: yeah melgor and the RB named after a car that was itself named after a girl (c.michael) are both owned by a guy who has
        gordon/c.michael/rawls/morris/mackinnon and marshall/baldwin/dez/coates so wonder if he thinks he needs a WR upgrade, i’d bet if dez doesn’t come back soon or look great right away he might think so though. i’ll try it now first.

        • Mantis Tobaggan MD says:
          (link)

          @Mantis Tobaggan MD: yep, melgor owner quickly nixed that, him and me have a long history of him being a prick (to the point where other leaguemates that’ve known him for like 15 or more years would actually veto his trades out of spite, which i put an end to by removing the asinine 4 out of 12 “votes” needed to veto a trade last year), BUT nobody deserves to have trades nixed due to b.s. like that. at least he got back quickly, better than other kinds of pricks. i’ve only been in this league for like 4-5 years and have no idea what personal beefs at least 4 other leaguemates have with this guy, to me those have nothing to do with nixing trades. i wouldn’t nix hitler’s trades even though he’s hitler.

    sweet jebus i can’t do anything right in one money league this year (bad luck i mean, not bad decisions, news changes to hurt my decisions less than 12 hours later like at least 4 times thus far). need useful RB THIS week, and could’ve had jacquizz over knile but went the other way, now news says rodgers starting this week and could easily be more too.

    Hey Jay, my first time with a partial keeper, my team sucks (2-4) wondering if I should start looking to next year. We keep 3 but only one per position is allowed.

    My team is :

    Qb: Dak, Winston
    Rb: Gurley, Ajayi, Jaquizz, J Stew, Yeldon
    Wr: Cooper, Dez, Woods, DJax
    Te: Barnidge

    12 team .5ppr, 1qb, 2rb, 2wr, 1 te, 1 flex, d, k

    Got offered Pryor and D Parker for Gurley and Dez plus round 1 (4) and 2 (5) picks next year

    The picks could be huge. This owner had David J so will not be able to keep Gurley as well. I might be able to get him back in the draft. What do you think, too much too soon? Would likely keep Cooper as my wr

      @Nightpandas: got Rawls on IR as well

      @Nightpandas: I think you need to wait until you go 2-6. I mean, not that you are, but I’ve seen people come back from 2-5. If you do decide to deal, the keeper aspect makes the deal okay, but I’d want a little more.

    What do you think of trading Ryan Mathews for Duke Johnson in a PPR league?

      I’d rather have Mathews there.

      @Joe:

      Crowell has fallen on his face. They have a check down QB and NOW Pryor is hurt TOO?!?!? Who is by far the teams best weapon that is healthy? Who is going to catch passes with Pryor out?

      Mathews has been trash and Smallwood, Sproles, and Barner present a lot of challenge…see if you can get more based on name and such, but Duke is the better player now and ROS.
