x1-1

In what is considered breaking news, to someone I guess, Andy Dalton pulled a coup de grĂ¢ce, which I think is a French dessert, some kind of custard pastry thingamajig, and landed a 115 million dollar contract earlier today. Just imagine the total dollar amount if he was actually a good quarterback. I’m kidding, sorta.

While Dalton is an entirely serviceable quarterback, both in the real world and fantasy, he just really isn’t anything special, so the actual level of derpiness that the Cincinnati front office achieved won’t be known until details of the guaranteed figures are released. That being said, Razzball has an exclusive on what one of the incentives of his new contract is: If Andy Dalton leads the Bengals to a playoff game, Mike Brown is obligated to give the team a long-extended vacation starting the Monday after.

 

In three series, Eli Manning able to produce turnover, because of course…

If you missed it, and you shouldn’t have, since it was the first live football being played for what has felt like centuries, CENTURIES I TELL YA, the Giants took on the Bills because some people wanted to get into the Hall of Fame and what have you. The reasons why we had football yesterday matter not, for in just three offensive series, Eli Manning was able turn the ball over, already showing that he’s in midseason form. I have to say it guys, this seed of Archie is a true crowd-pleaser, a fan’s player if you will.

God I missed this face. You know that face. All of them.

 

GORDON-WATCH 2014 still ongoing…

The appeal process still appears to be ongoing in what most people said would just take one day to produce a finding in Josh Gordon‘s suspension hearing. Granted, most of those people are me, myself, and my internet browser, so take that for what you will. With a chance that a suspension might not be for an entire season as what was originally thought, fantasy owners that are drafting now are really caught in an interesting case of high-risk/high-reward. I have to say though, even if he doesn’t get suspended the entire season, I would be weary from drafting him, even at a buy-low, simply because we haven’t even dealt with the possibility of another suspension from his DUI. Not to mention that we have a player that appears to have as much self-control as Lindsey Lohan, and so I’m probably just going to go draft Brian Hartline instead. SEE WHAT YOU’VE DONE TO ME!

    I recently talked to you about a 12 man full ppr keep 3 league, where we do a one round snake at last yrs value. The keepers are in finally, and there are a couple guys available i thought were definitely goin to be kept. I have lacy, morris, and cobb. In order, what would be your top 3?

    Marshall 34$
    Forte 34$
    Garcon 19$
    Gio Bernard 18$
    leveon Bell 10$
    Edelman 3$

      @big league choo: Out of this group, probably Forte, Leveon Bell, then a mix of Garcon, Marshall and Edelman, depending on savings. I’d probably go Edelman here and spend that money elsewhere.

    I have to choose two keepers, and Lacy will be one for sure. The bottom line of my question is if I should pick Peyton or one of my receivers. I think we are both expecting a Manning regression, but how far should I take that?
    My starting receivers are Antonio Brown, Pierre Garcon, Andre Johnson.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Out of that group, I would keep Brown over Manning.

        @Jay: Thanks again. My league is stupefied by my decision. I’m scared because I am glad I ignored my gut instinct to drop Peyton last year. But I’ll follow your advice. Looking forward to your projections.

          @Oliver: I’m not sure why. In standard 1 QB leagues, I think Brown is the better pick. The QB depth this season is outrageous.

    When Russell Wilson signs, that Dalton contract will look like a bargain. It’s like buying gas: No matter how expensive it looks today, you better fill up because the average price is only going to be higher next week. So I was all set to keep Montee Ball over Gio Bernard in a PPR league. Should I now switch to Gio because of Ball’s non-football surgery?

    Thanks

      Yeah, I mean, I saw that it was, what, 17 million guaranteed? That ain’t shit, so really, who cares. It’s not like elite QB’s are raining down on the NFL, so I’m fine with it.

      I’m fine keeping Ball where he is right now, since reports say he’ll be ready for week one, but that’s still behind Bernard.

    Who should I keep? I have the last pick in this year’s draft and traded my 3rd pick and Rivers for Lacy last year.

    Keeping: Lacy & Morris

    On The Bubble: Desean Jackson, Zac Stacy, Josh Gordon

      @Jimmy:

      12 team 0.5 PR

      @Jimmy: I’d keep Stacy here.

    13th overall pick I’m trying to decide between D. Thomas or Julio Jones, whatsayuuu?

      @Jake Olmstead: Thomas by the hair, but I have no problem going Julio either. Very high on him.
