Would it be too much to ask for if this could end in a 3-3 tie? Those are the things you wonder during weekday football, especially on a weekday after that Seahawks and Cardinals game in which I actually got a contact bore. And so, while I didn’t get my wish, last night’s game was full of intrigue, excitement, and none of those things. Don’t get me wrong, the game didn’t turn out as bad as the first quarter had me thinking. I mean, it was still pretty bad, but not historically bad, which Monday Night and Thursday Night Football are potentially capable of. That being said, the game was still over before the half, and I’m sure we’re not the better for it in any way. Add into the fact that Jon Gruden went full tool mode and put forth an interesting observation that with all the injuries this year in the NFL, perhaps the reduction in physical contact practice was to blame…. Yeah, that makes about as much sense as me getting sleepy because I got plenty of rest. Beyond that, well, I’d love to tell you about a football game, but I’m not entirely sure I saw one…

A great article in my local paper that all football fans should read…

“Goodell will go down as a figure of historical ineptitude. Of this he is blissfully unaware.”

Just draws you in, doesn’t it?

C.J. Anderson – 16 CAR, 107 YDS, 6.7 AVG, 1 TD, 19 LONG. Tackling: How Does it Work? An essay by the Texans run defense. I like what I saw from Devontae Booker (17 CAR, 83 YDS, 4.9 AVG, 1 TD, 12 LONG and 1 REC, 4 YDS, 4.0 AVG, 4 LONG, 2 TGTS), and while the snap count doesn’t reflect any huge role change, it’s obvious that he’s getting slightly longer looks as the season goes on and he’s showing results. That being said, I’m not nervous with Anderson quite yet, as he’s been preforming the last few weeks as well, and Rudy’s Pigskinator still has a pretty good projection setup for him…

Alfred Blue11 CAR, 63 YDS, 5.7 AVG, 17 LONG. Wow, the graphics in the latest Madden game is terrific! It almost looked like Blue had as many carries as Lamar Miller  (11 CAR, 61 YDS, 5.5 AVG, 25 LONG and 3 REC, 6 YDS, 2.0 AVG, 4 LONG, 4 TGTS) in real life. What a crazy thing that could only happen in a video game!

DeAndre Hopkins5 REC, 36 YDS, 7.2 AVG, 12 LONG, 12 TGTS. DO SOMETHING CONGRESS.

Brock Osweiler22/41, 131 YDS, 3.2 AVG, 60.1 RTG and 3 CAR, 16 YDS, 5.3 AVG, 10 LONG. Money well spent, Houston. And it was interesting that they were booing Osweiler in Denver last night. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I understand why, but listen, did you want to see Brandon Weeden out there instead? We dodged a bullet here folks.

Trevor Siemian14/25, 157 YDS, 6.3 AVG, 1 TD, 88.2 RTG and 1 CAR, -1 YDS, -1.0 AVG, -1 LONG. Trevor Siemian alternates between Alex Smith and Rick Mirer, with no rhyme nor reason as to why. You know… there is a former Bronco quarterback available who has actually won a playoff game. Just saying…

    So who should I be looking at as the next Devontae Booker? My lack of success picking sleepers is laughable. Need some serious help

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Well, let’s be honest, anyone who had Ajayi was because they forgot to drop him (that was me in one league) or owned Arian Foster (me in another league). Those are the only two scenarios of why he wasn’t a FA until last week. The rest, I answered in the other thread, but we’re getting in the point of the season where RBs start getting thin for everyone. I think Drake is a guy to look into.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Hmm…. yeah, I have a waiver claim in for Chris Thompson and I’m dropping Cameron Brate.

        For this week though, I guess my next drop is Knile Davis for Cordarelle Patterson or Dwayne Washington? I hear the Vikings are getting Patterson more involved and he’s outperformed Diggs the past 3-4 games. Washington seems poised to be involved a bit since Zenner hasn’t done much to separate himself (Poor man’s Asiata?)… Is there any word yet if Theo Riddick is out for Week 8?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Eesh, bottom of the barrel there. I’d only say Patterson because Bradford has been paying attention to him the last few weeks, like you said. Still waiting on a firm word on Theo.

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

    Gurley Ingram Ware/Charles Ajayi JStew?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: No, I feel like a RB1 is too much for a QB… but I know you’re trying to bandaid that position. And I’d want the Gurley side there, a bit less risk, with still enough ceiling to gamble on.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: sorry part 2 not a trade question. A ROS ranking order question – just trying to weigh charles/ware as if they were one person

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Josh: I’m okay with it. Honestly, I like Mathews over Gio straight up, even with the PPR aspect. I don’t like Sproles all that much.

    non ppr.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @a bag of sand: Always sell high when you can… I’d shop, but I’d also want him more than Cobb here.

  13. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Here is one name that came up on Numberfire: J.J. Nelson – is he any good and worth a flier moreso than someone like Ka’Deem Carey or Dwayne Washington? I need someone to fill my FLEX spot this week. My drop would be Knile Davis.

    Looks like I’ll be rolling out the following 2 RBs (waiver pending): Jeremy Hill and Chris Thompson. I just think Matt Jones is too risky right now and if he has 1 more fumble, he probably won’t see the field for the rest of the season.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Interesting you bring up J.J. Nelson, as Lance talks about him a tiny bit today in his FAAB post. He doesn’t have the size, but has good speed even though he lacks good route-running… looks like a prototypical slot receiver to me. I wouldn’t expect too much, but with the Floyd and Brown being so inconsistent target wise, might be room for him to step up.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I can’t afford any more misses on fliers especially the next 3 weeks. Currently sitting at 2-5, I need to get myself back to .500 to have ANY shot at a playoff spot.

        How do I manage going week to week? Do I treat each week like daily fantasy and play the matchups even if it means dropping a player like Rashad Jenning or DeVante Parker? Back is to the wall now Jay. Need to go down swinging.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Right, and I’ve been telling others, play like it’s your last week. But knowing when to hold is still key. I think Jennings is a hold here, as long as Parker. I don’t see any obvious upgrades over those to specifically. A guy like Brate though? Yeah, no second thought.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: With that in mind, do I drop Knile Davis then for a hail mary like J.J Nelson, Ka’Deem Carey, or Dwayne Washington? I guess my only waiver add will be Chris Thompson, who I hopefully snag and then pick up someone as a FA who could see more touches than Knile Davis. Were there any injuries that happened in Week 7 to keep an eye on for Week 8?

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @William Hung: I like Carey there out of those three, with Thompson being pretty essential there. And not that I’m aware of on the injury front.

  14. a bag of sand says:

    moncrief or dorsett if both are healthY?

  15. Dan says:

    Would you drop Ertz or Hunter Henry for Fiedorowicz in a 12 team PPR league?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dan: Sure, I think all of those guys are interchangeable. I think Ertz offers the best upside here.

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Zandy: Probably go against Stew and CObb.

  17. RonnieMatt says:
    (link)

    Do you like CMike for Ty Mont and Randall Cobb? Its a ppr league and looking at green bays schedule and RB situation, I think they will pass a ton with a lot of receptions to those two? Do you think rawls comes back and takes over seattle’s backfield?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @RonnieMatt: Yeah, it’s fair, and I think when Rawls comes back he doesn’t take over, but makes things complicated. I kinda like this trade for you.

  18. Bobby says:
    (link)

    Howdy jay! It’s crazy we are at week 8!

    My RBs are David Johnson, Melvin Gordon, Jordan Howard, Jamaal Charles, andre Ellington, and Henry too.

    My Wrs we start 3. Hopkins, Hilton, Emmanuel sanders, fuller, Shepard, Chris hogan, Corey Coleman

    IR: Watkins
    IR: moncrief (looks to be returning soon)

    My flex is currently Jordan Howard. This week I’m worried about the matchup &I now carey us stealing carries too

    Would you look to package my Howard + either Shepard, 0r Howard + any of my bench WRs maybe even moncrief? For latavius Murray? I really need a RB for week 9 & of course depth for ROS. Week 9 DJ, Howard , and also Hopkins on byes. Yeah I’ll have Gordon to use week 9 but I would be weaker for sure

    Another RB I’m looking to aquire, ajayi. Ajayi owner is a different owner from the lat Murray owner. However he does have Demarco Murray, I do have Henry. He lost Lacy, riddick is iffy. He still has Duke Johnson , Gurley, Demarco, ajayi, riddick, jalen Richard.

    Week 9 ajayi has the jets. Who would you offer to aquire ajayi? Or do you think it’ll be too pricey?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: I know, half a season already!

      Yeah, I like the idea of upgrading with LatMurray. I would definitely look to sell Howard, but I’d rather you hold on Shepard there. I’ve liked what I saw.

      Ajayi, honestly, I wouldn’t even make an offer, his value is everywhere right now. Instead, I would ask them what they’re looking for, and build from there.

  19. Brian says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    Would you trade Booker for Tevon Coleman ? I am a little worried about the injured hamstring but I feel like Coleman has more upside when he returns than Booker but on the other hand it appears that Denver is content running the ball 30 plus times per game so Booker should continue getting touches and is healthy. What would you do ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brian: Yeah, I like Coleman more here. I’d do that trade.

    Thanks Jay – between Thursday night and last night, I feel like I might need a NFL hiatus.

    I’m in a bye week pinch in a 14 team PPR league – need to drop one of the following to pickup a WR for the week – hopefully Coradelle Patterson (did I just say that?) – who gets the axe:

    McKinnon
    Eli (and roll with Dak for as long as he starts)
    Dion Lewis

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @JimmyJackJames: Don’t we all man. These last few primetime games have been atrocious. I think Eli is the drop, only because in a 14 team PPR league, I think Dion has a lot of potential.

    Just read that Langford practiced and is looking like he will play this week – does he leap Carey or does Carey have value on his own as the pass catcher and Langford cancels out Jordan?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: That whole situation is scary now, because you now have three people that could split the carries. I’d aim for Thompson and Nelson maybe right now. I’ve always liked Langford, but he won’t get a lot of snaps until probably next week.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: JJ Nelson over Cordarelle Patterson?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @William Hung: I’d say slightly yes, only because Nelson has a chance to getting increased snap counts because of both Browns dealing with injury issues.

    1. 20 team PPR where i’m only 4-3 albeit with top 3 in points, but still need to keep winning, only 6 make playoffs.
    QB rivers/gabbert
    RB (start 2) CAP/l.bell/howard/langford/kniles
    WR (start 3) t.smith/s.smith/jeffrey/m.lee/wheaton
    TE graham/clay
    so this week i’d need to drop wheaton (or gabbert) to get a 3rd WR and would be starting kniles davis or CAP.
    drop wheaton for which (rank 2) of hunter/shepard/shorts/strong/peake/jj nelson?
    2. same league, hold kniles or drop for any of don jackson/barber? (could also drop CAP, but stewart is very injury prone)
    gabbert could be a drop here too, but literally the only other QB that could have more value would be hogan.

    3. same league, if the ONLY team D’s left are SD/CLE/JAX/CHI/NO/ATL/DAL hold on BUF vs NE this week or drop for CLE vs NYJ? BUF plays @ SEA then has a bye in which i’d have to drop them anyway.

    4. dynasty PPR where i have all of these (2 flexes, 3 WR, 2 RB):
    RB mckinnon/ingram/mathews/forte/smallwood/ivory (woodhead in IR)
    WR jordy/d-jax/edelman (allen in IR)/treadwell
    TE j.thomas/ertz
    in week 9 i’ll have literally 1 WR active likely. i’ll have an extra IDP to drop but which of ivory/smallwood go to grab which of these WR: kerley/t.smith/britt/m.lee/humpries/k.wright

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: 1. I’d rank it as Shepard, Hunter, Nelson, Strong. 2. I would hold there. 3. Hmm, I actually like the Bills matchup against the Hawks, but no so much against the Patriots. Might go Jags there. 4. I think Smallwood for Lee is fine.

  32. I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
    (link)

    14 teamer where i’m 7-0 and have most points, so i could lose, but you can see the holes it’s springing.
    QB luck
    RB (start 2) mccoy/ware/charles/CAP/booker/ivory (ugly issues with charles/mccoy)
    WR (start 3) diggs/a.brown/parker/t.williams/woods
    TE henry/eifert
    1. i’m guessing all my RB’s are holds over d-jax (GB)/rainey/langford/carey/morris?
    2. drop any WR for any of: cruz? doesn’t appear to be any moves here maybe, just hoping if i lose a bit i’ll be healthy by playoffs.

    another 7-0 and destroying league in points roster, 12 team PPR (start 2 RB/3 WR NO flex)
    QB brees/stafford
    RB all CHI/PIT/JAX RB’s.
    WR hopkins/cobb/t.williams/hilton/m.jones
    TE graham
    K BAL K
    D LA
    already know to drop yeldon for thompson, but drop ivory for one of these: carey (in case)/asiata/d-jax (GB)/forsett?

      @William Hung: I think you have to roll the dice at that point, depending on who gets dropped.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I just realized I’m dropping Brate for Thompson so if that doesn’t go through then I’d still have Knile Davis. Knile > Jones?

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: I’d be dropping Brate for Marquis Lee or Marquise Goodwin at that point

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Naw, I like Jones more, unless news comes out that he’s going to start getting major snaps.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: yeah, but Jones has the risk of another donut if he fumbles one more time… which could lead to Knile outperforming him.

    Hey Jay, in my 10team league, would you drop John Brown? Ive been debating as the WRs are thin in AZ (Jaron Brown done for season, M Floyd banged up)…but John is not in great shape himself…

    I’m putting a bid in for D Adams as I’m thin at WR (will be dropping Coates)…so I could also drop J Brown for someone like LaFell, Goodwin or Crowder??

    Another question at QB…I have Dalton in right now but options on waivers include Mariota (thursday v Jax), Carr @TB, Cousins @ Cinc or Palmer @ Carolina?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Hmm, yeah, I think it’s okay. I like Adams there. I think Crowder is the next guy up there. Haven’t started rankings yet, but I think Carr might be worth a look.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: You know, I actually might like Palmer a bit more there.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I have a claim in for Carr…I’m nervous about Palmer’s options at WR (as a J Brown owner)…with that said, who do you store away, Coates or J Brown? I want to drop one and pickup a WR to plug & play over Maclin (cant stand his production)…I could use J Brown or drop him or Coates for D Adams, LaFell, Crowder?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Brown I think with Big Ben out. Crowder might be good for this week.

      @Jerry: I like Doyle right now, but I haven’t even looked at rankings yet. I feel like Witten would be close though.

    which defense should i roll with this week? titans or jets.
    also are any of these guys worth an add chris thompson, marquise goodwin, davante adams? i would have to drop either rashad jennings, mckinnon, or jordan howard.

    • Jay

    Eli

    Gurley Ingram
    Graham
    Ware
    Bench: jCharles JStew Cobb Montgomery Watkins Floyd Knile Don Jackson

    Jameis schedule goes – Oak Atl Chi @KC Sea SD NO @Dal @NO
    Seattle and maybe @KC would be the only places Id need to stream
    Eli goes Chi and @Cle those weeks plus Det when Winston goes @Dal

    Do I pay up for Winston?
    Send either
    Cobb for Winston & TBenj?
    JStew for Winston & Henry? (figure demarco is due for a hammy)
    JStew for Winston & TBenj?
    Cobb Jstew for Ajayi & Winston? (but idk if he will move ajayi)

    his other wrs are edelman, crabtree, DT
    his other rbs are leveon, ajayi, booker, henry, forsett, blue
    his other QB is Luck

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Cobb deal is okay, I don’t like the first JStew one, but the second one works too. And the Ajayi trade is fine, but I think most people are holding or wanting the moon.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

    14 team standard dynasty super flex. i’m 6-1 with 3rd most points, good margin ahead of 4th in those but also good margin behind 2nd. 2 RB/2 WR/1 regular flex as well.
    QB palmer/keenum/goff
    RB asiata/booker/gurley/coleman/hyde/dixon
    WR dez/green/cooks/parker/m.jones
    TE j.thomas/walker
    K mcmanus
    D MIN
    IR woodhead/hoyer
    having lost hoyer for probably year, and what’s complicating this week is all my byes at RB and the coleman injury, meaning i waivered asiata to even have 2 starters. mccown is available, should i just punt a roster spot this week and either drop asiata for mccown or possibly mcmanus and punt kicker instead this week?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Eli Man Penguin Boy: If punting, kicker is the way to go, but leaving points is pretty risky. What happens if you drop Keenum for Asiata?

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: asiata i grabbed since hyde/gurley/coleman/dixon will either miss from bye/injury/barely used for this week. then quickly realized that longer term i’d be better served possibly having mccown. dropping an actual starting QB i’d think be a big no no in super flex, where i only have 2 presently.

        • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
          (link)

          @Eli Man Penguin Boy: the “big no no” meaning keenum would very quickly get aquired by somebody, likely the geno S owner or somebody in that kind of shape.

          • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
            (link)

            @Eli Man Penguin Boy: OOPS, my ass here, i confused the mccown’s, as i suspected it was odd that JOSH mccown wasn’t already owned (as i assumed for a 14 team dynasty super flex). nevermind, clearly asiata is best hold, unless of course we think hogan CLE is better add, but i’m guessing at least one of chainsaw kessler/mccown come back fairly soon.

          • Jay

            Jay says:
            (link)

            @Eli Man Penguin Boy: Ah, I understand. Hmm, if you can, can you list out the team you’re going against? I want to see if punting will super screw any projections…

            • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
              (link)

              @Jay: however, for this week alone if hogan were to start he’d probably be worth more points than my kicker, even if mcmanus is a few spots ahead of walsh (next best ROS option available). however, unless he runs for all those yards again, he might just score less than a kicker, he was pretty horrible at throwing the football and all that.

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @Eli Man Penguin Boy: Yeah, I think Hogan has some value in a league this big, but the output potential is really risky too.

    @Jay – My Week 8 lineup currently stands as .5 PPR:
    QB – Stafford
    WR – AJ Green, Julian Edelman, Ty Mont
    RB – Jeremy Hill, Chris Thompson
    TE – Greg Olsen
    FLEX – Marquis Lee

    Bench – Matt Jones, Dion Lewis
    BYE – Landry, Jennings, Britt, Parker

    Tyler Lockett and Jeremy Langford are both available – do I pick either of those up for any of my players?

    Also, as my team currently stands, I will need to pick up a RB next week with only Rashad Jennings available. Depending on how Sunday shakes out, if Thompson and Lee continue to perform well, is my drop either Jones or DeVante Parker?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: I think if you get a big week from those guys, and what we see from Jones will make that decision obvious. I’m itching to see what the snap counts look like this week on Jones and Thompson.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Am I making the right choice with my lineup and going Thompson and Lee over Jones?

        I’m intrigued by Lee just cause he was pretty damn amazing at USC, but he was looking like the typical college stud -> NFL bust type player who are a dime a dozen.

        As a watcher of games, do you think Lee can keep up his production of 8-10 points per week in PPR with a shot at more with a TD?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: The thing about Lee is, they are involving him more right now, granted, it’s a Jags offense, but for the bye period, he should work.

      @Josh: Hmm, I thought that was a fair offer. Maybe find out what he thinks of Matthews? With him replacing Britt, you could add in a defense, since he has two, something like a minor upgrade.

      @Josh: I’d target Cooks here… but I feel like he’ll want multiple pieces, lots of holes here.

    Jones missed practice, Roster RKelley or hang on to Don Jackson?

      @Zandy: Yeah, if Jones missed practice, go with the snap counts. Probably Kelley.

      @Zandy: Naw, I’d put him in the Terrance West tier probably for now.
