Well, that was certainly a Sunday worth remembering. Especially if you’re like me and reset the ole’ memory banks with copious amounts of bourbon throughout the day. You could say these Sunday notes aren’t just for you, but also myself… So here we are, together in this. And together, we saw some interesting things… the Bucs, the 1-8 Bucs (in case you were confused) destroyed Washington. For context, the Falcons destroyed the Bucs. And the Panthers almost beat the Falcons. So according to that, the Panthers would probably beat Washington by 200 points. In fact, with the Raiders only mustering 200 yards of total offense, I’m pretty sure if they faced off against Washington, both teams would find a way to lose. And let’s not forget the Lions having a throwback game to the Matt Millen Era. Peyton Manning thinking it’s the month of January (to be fair, the weather has me convinced of this.) Mark Sanchez returning to form. And then there’s this… the Cardinals are now 9-1. They are now three games ahead of Seattle and San Francisco, and one has to naturally wonder, how is this possible? My answer? Two quick touchdowns and leaning on your defense for three hours… this has been done before many times. So I’m just going to go ahead and write the Cardinals in as a playoff team. In permanent marker. And then prepare myself for the end of the world.

 

Seahawks – 20, Chiefs – 24

Alex Smith – 11/16, 108 YDS and 2 CAR, -1 YDS. As a special exclusive for Razzball readers, I’ve gotten my hands on Alex Smith’s playbook to get an inside look of how the Chiefs offense operates “behind-the-scenes”.

Playbook, Alex Smith:

1. Checkdown.

2. Checkdown.

Well, what can you say? It’s a scary wasteland 10-yards beyond the line of scrimmage…

Jamaal Charles – 20 CAR, 159 YDS, 2 TD and 2 REC, 19 YDS. Out of all the NFL teams, it’s my belief that Kansas City would be the most successful team if there was no such thing as a quarterback. And the primary reason is because of this guy.

Russell Wilson – 20/32, 178 YDS, 2 TD and 8 CAR, 71 YDS. Wilson ran it a bunch? Who’d have guessed? I mean, we’re only talking about a guy who has more 100-yard rushing games than Marshawn Lynch.

Marshawn Lynch – 24 CAR, 124 YDS and 1 REC, 1 YDS. Guys! Guys! Marshawn Lynch is pretty good.

 

Falcons – 19, Panthers – 17

Matt Ryan – 31/45, 268 YDS, 1 TD and 1 CAR, 4 YDS. Ladies and Gentlemen, your first place, Matt Ryan led, 4-6, Atlanta Falcons. We’ve had teams with losing records make it to the playoffs before, but the NFC South may just end up sending a 6-10 team there, which I’m now actively rooting for.

Cam Newton – 23/37, 292 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT and 5 CAR, 30 YDS. So, I mean, does Cam Newton just suck now? What’s going on here? Is it a bad team sucking a good quarterback down with them? Is it his time? I want to say no, but we have six weeks of regular season football left, and he’s done Jack. No offense to Jill.

Kelvin Benjamin – 9 REC, 109 YDS, 1 TD. Actively doing his part to make sure this year’s wide receiver draft class goes down as the “craziest awesome” in the history of football. Yes, that’s actually a thing folks.

 

Bengals – 27, Saints – 10

WE HAD A HURRICANE! THIS CITY NEEDS THIS FOOTBALL AS PART OF OUR HEALING PROCESS!

Andy Dalton – 16/22, 220 YDS, 3 TD. BREAKING NEWS: Andy Dalton’s quarterback rating in yesterday’s game was 153.93 times higher than last week. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has released a statement that there will be a full investigation. Let’s just say somebody’s gonna get “randomly” drug tested in that locker room.

Jeremy Hill – 27 CAR, 152 YDS and 1 REC, 13 YDS. So I think I figured it out. Only start Hill in odd-numbered weeks and sit him during even-numbered ones.

A.J. Green – 6 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD. The circle of life.

 

Buccaneers – 27, Washington Football Team – 7

Charles Sims – 13 CAR, 36 YDS and 3 REC, 8 YDS. Oh Not-Doug Martin, you’re so much better than Doug Martin. By, like 10 yards a game. Baby steps people… baby steps.

Mike Evans – 7 REC, 209 YDS, 2 TD. How the heck do you give up essentially all of the Bucs offensive production to one player? Interesting question. Better question? How is Jim Haslett still employed in the NFL? My mother could do a better job, and that’s just based on her asking “why don’t they just cover that one guy who’s catching everything?” You’re hired!

Robert Griffin – 23/32, 207 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT and 6 CAR, 41 YDS. I’m pretty sure that RG3 dressed up as Jeff George for Halloween and forgot to take the costume off. Hey, remember back in the day, around the time of the Mayan apocalypse, when RG3 was good? Man, those were the days…

Roy Helu – 6 REC, 57 YDS, 1 TD, 1 FUM. I present to you, the most productive player on offense. I’ll let that statement stand on it’s own. Just let it breathe there for a while.

 

Broncos – 7, Rams – 22

Shaun Hill – 20/29, 220 YDS, 1 TD. I was thinking just now… “Shaun Hill beats Peyton Manning” is not a phrase that occurs in the English language ever. So we should probably step back and recognize this for what it is: history in the making.

Tre Mason – 29 CAR, 113 YDS and 1 REC, 1 YDS. As you may have known, I’ve been on the Mason Train, or Tre Train, or, even better, the Trein… which sounds like a medieval boat of some sort. Point is, I’m a believer, and he seems to be gaining yardage in a way that Zac Stacy did last season around this time. And that’s being fed the ball about 79% of the time.

Kenny Britt – 4 REC, 128 YDS, 1 TD. Ah yes, little did we know that yesterday would be the annual “Kenny Britt gains 100+ yards and scores a touchdown, and how the f*ck is my opponent starting him when I dropped him a month ago” game.

Peyton Manning – 34/54, 389 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. Is it January? The weather thinks so. The Pey-Pey things so. Must be January then.

C.J. Anderson – 9 CAR, 29 YDS and 8 REC, 86 YDS. Looks to be the guy with Montee Ball re-aggravating his groin injury during his first play of the game. Or wait… is it Groin who re-aggravated his ball injury? Well, either way, this is not good news for his genitalia.

Emmanuel Sanders – 5 REC, 102 YDS, 1 TD.

Something tells me Emmanuel Sanders forgot a bunch about a bunch of things. One of those things being this hit. He left the game with concussion symptoms and will most likely be reevaluated later today. I, of course hope Sanders is no worse for wear, but for what it’s worth, the hit seemed clean and there was no helmet-to-helmet contact. I was actually surprised, as Highlander has shown us that McLeod’s aren’t exactly known for avoiding the head…

 

49ers – 16, Giants – 10

Frank Gore – 19 CAR, 95 YDS and 2 REC, 19 YDS. Apparently, the Giants new “break, break, break, get lucky” defense seemed to work not so well against Gore. Or does that mean it did work well?

Michael Crabtree – 3 REC, 85 YDS, 1 TD. Who replaced Michael Crabtree with someone that can catch?

Eli Manning – 22/45, 1 TD, 5 INT. Watching Eli Manning makes me miss Jake Delhomme’s interceptions. During his press conference, Manning let it slip out that it wasn’t his “plan to throw 5 interceptions”. Yeah, no sh*t. If you planned that, you would have probably thrown 10 touchdowns.

Reuban Randle – 7 REC, 112 YDS. Clearly, Randle was tired of having his face on the local milk carton.

Larry Donnell – 3 REC, 54 YDS, 1 TD. Larry Donnell: turning Eli Manning interceptions into Giants receptions since 2014.

 

Vikings – 13, Bears – 21

Jay Cutler – 31/43, 330 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT and 5 CAR, 21 YDS. It’s totally Cutler’s fault that this game was so close. He is also responsible for the Titanic sinking, 9/11, World War 2, and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

Matt Forte – 26 CAR, 117 YDS and 6 REC, 58 YDS. You folks are never gonna believe this, but giving Forte the ball is a good idea.

Alshon Jeffery – 11 REC, 135 YDS, 1 TD. So uh, looks like Jeffery and Brandon Marshall (7 REC, 90 YDS, 2 TD)  remembered how to football, hunh?

Jerick McKinnon – 8 CAR, 38 YDS and 4 REC, 20 YDS. BOOO THIS MAN! BOOOOOOO!

 

Texans – 23, Browns – 7

azkes47edgtvvvxwy76x

Alfred Blue – 36 CAR, 156 YDS. There’s a Blue-balls joke around here somewhere… to be honest, I’m not crazy about his talent level, and probably ranked him lower than he should have been, so naturally I’m easy troll material here. But I think the real lesson here is that the Factory of Sadness is showing signs that they are ready to open once again.

Arian Foster is still considered questionable with his groin injury, which probably means, in Foster-speak, that he’s out for two years with a disappearing oblique.

J.J. Watt – 1 REC, 2 YDS, 1 TD. J.J. Watt almost makes me care about the Texans… almost.

Andrew Hawkins – 6 REC, 97 YDS, 1 TD. Andrew Hawkins almost makes me care about my bench… almost.

 

Raiders – 6, Chargers – 13

Philip Rivers – 22/34, 193 YDS, 1 TD and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. A deceptively bad game as Rivers was pressured all day long and played through a pretty bad leg-roll bruise along with an undisclosed rib injury, and that’s just from being a parent to 89 children.

Ryan Mathews – 16 CAR, 70 YDS and 1 REC, 5 YDS. We were expecting anywhere from 10-15 carries, so that wasn’t too much of a surprise.  Branden Oliver (13 CAR, 36 YDS and 1 REC, 3 YDS) will still get enough volume have some staying power, the Danny Woodhead role if you will, but Mathews looked real good and the offense will go through him from this point until he gets injured again. In about five minutes.

Derek Carr – 16/34, 172 YDS and 2 CAR, 0 YDS. Never underestimate the power of an arr. Whatever that means. Maybe he’s a pirate. All that should matter is that he’s showing enough competence for the Raiders to derp their first overall pick on a non-quarterback. Get yer popcorn ready.

 

Lions – 6, Cardinals – 14

I’d love nothing more than to write about the highlights in this game, but there weren’t many. So we’re going to have to get creative. Let’s start with…

Drew Stanton (21/32, 306 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT and 4 CAR, -4 YDS) who is the “regression to the mean” personified as a human being.

Then you have, um, well Michael Floyd (2 REC, 54 YDS, 2 TD), who made me realize this was probably the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

And Andre Ellington (19 CAR, 42 YDS and 4 REC, 24 YDS) did some things… I guess.

There was vintage Matthew Stafford (18/30, 183 YDS, 1 INT) doing all kinds of Matthew Stafford type things.

And Calvin Johnson (5 REC, 59 YDS) playing as “some sort of Transformer, yet to be determined”.

In fact, the most notable feat was Joique Bell (14 CAR, 85 YDS and 3 REC, 30 YDS) punching through the Cardinals defense like Andy Reid bursting through the wall of a Kansas City rib joint.

 

Eagles – 20, Packers – 53

Aaron Rodgers – 22/36, 341 YDS, 3 TD and 3 CAR, 32 YDS. The real question is: did we get to see Matt Flynn (2/2, 26 YDS, 3 CAR, -3 YDS) play? OH MY GOD YES WE DID.

Eddie Lacy – 10 CAR, 69 YDS, 1 TD and 3 REC, 45 YDS, 1 TD. Lacy was completely unnecessary in the Packers offense yesterday, but it’s the thought that counts.

Randall Cobb – 10 REC, 129 YDS. Pretty sure both Cobb and Jordy Nelson (4 REC, 109 YDS, 1 TD) thought they were still playing the Bears. They wouldn’t be that wrong…

Mark Sanchez – 26/44, 2 TD, 2 INT and 3 CAR, 0 YDS, 2 FUM. Eagles fans, I present to you the real Mark Sanchez… enjoy. RIP Mark Sanchez’s return to competence: 11/10/14-11/10/14. The good news? Sanchez derp wasn’t strong enough hold back LeSean McCoy (23 CAR, 88 YDS and 1 REC, 18 YDS), Jordan Matthews (5 REC, 107 YDS, 1 TD), and Jeremy Maclin (9 REC, 93 YDS, 1 TD). Just the Eagles as a whole, apparently.

 

Patriots – 42, Colts – 20

g4yei

Jonas Gray – 38 CAR, 199 YDS, 4 TD. I’d speak ill of Belichick running Gray over Shane Vereen (1 CAR, 18 YDS, 4 REC, 59 YDS), but he’d try to f*ck my mom.

Andrew Luck – 23/39, 303 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 3 CAR, 15 YDS. You could say… he just ran out of Luck? (Farts, leaves room.)

Ahmad Bradshaw – 3 CAR, 15 YDS and 4 REC, 7 YDS. Left the game in the fourth quarter with a leg injury. That’s okay man. I didn’t need those points. I wanted to lose this fantasy match-up with huge playoff implications. Totally bro. High-five!

Trent Richardson – 7 CAR, 0 YDS and 1 REC, 21 YDS. T-rich looked rangy and agile last night. When it comes down to it, on a critical fourth-and-one, you want this guy to make it a fifth-and-three.

Coby Fleener – 7 REC, 144 YDS. LOL. Get the f*ck out with this.

    Gargon is costing me. For the future ROS what order to you see the following WR’s. Gargon, Wright, Landry and T. Williams. I have G. Tate and Evans but need to start 1 or 2 of the above in a PPR league.

    • STL says:
      (link)

      @Nimrod:

      I think I’m dropping Garcon after this week. I’m done with that headache. I made the mistake of starting him over Beckham Jr. yesterday.

      He’s just not getting the targets.

      • Nimrod says:
        (link)

        @STL: I started him over Landry. I know it’s hindsight but he’s not had any big games. With the Redskins offense I’m probably benching him, but not dropping him yet.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @STL: I mean, he’s still worthy of a bench spot… RG just needs some time.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nimrod: GARGOOOOONE, amiright? I have it as Williams, Garcon, Wright, and then Landry.

    Hey Jay, blew up your last post regarding grabbing GB defense & Gray last night. I lost out on Gray as he was picked up just 1 quarter into the NE game…but got GB defense dropping SD this morning. You role them out, specifically next week over the options of;
    Colts v. Jags (didnt see this one)
    NE v Det
    Chicago v TB
    Cincy @ Houston
    Cleveland @ ATL
    Dallas @ NYG

    Thanks Jay. & I don’t think I can carry 2 defense as my bench includes A Johnson, Sanu, K Allen, McKinnon & Witten/Donnell (I know your going to say to drop Witten but I have to ride him & Donnell on matchups through the playoffs in a 10-teamer)

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: St Louis is also available!

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Nick: St. Louis is fine too, they have been lights out lately. Honestly, from what you have here, there are plenty of streaming options, you should be fine on that side of the ball.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Blow away. Wait… anyhow Colts look terrible right now. Cincy seems safe there. I’d go with them.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: haha, wait, you would go Cincy over GB? I grabbed GB this morning thinking they would be good against Minnesota next

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: GB is fine. I’m just saying, you have some good options there.

    My rbs: demarco, Charles, gore, rashad j, McKinnon
    Mr wrs: demariyus, alshon, Roddy, keenan Allen

    Thoughts?

    • Bye Felicia says:

      @ADTrey: Nope, crazy to even consider with the guys you own. You don’t need Gio…

      @ADTrey: no

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @ADTrey: You don’t really need Gio, so I’d probably hold.

    I need Martavis Bryant to get 13+ points to squeak out a win, what are the chances?

    • Bye Felicia says:

      @Nick: I’d say 50/50. A fair shot to be honest.

    Hey would you swap out Mason Crosby for say, Matt Bryant, Zuerlein, Bullock, Nugent, Novak, Santos or S Graham?

    Or despite Crosby’s brutal game, don’t blame it on him & hold?

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I stream kickers unless I own New England’s kicker. I always stream D/ST based off matchups

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: To be honest, I don’t think it matters. They are all the same essentially. I’d probably not drop Goose, Tucker, Novack, etc., but the tier you’re working with is interchangeable.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Actually Tucker & Novak are available..are they better options than Crosby?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Yes to both. I would go Novak this week.

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: Now I know this is just a kicker, but Crosby has been putting up numbers & you know Rodgers is going to keep the ball moving.

            Novak on the other hand, has 2 15pt games, otherwise the rest is under 10pts. whats the reasoning behind this?

            • Nick says:
              (link)

              @Nick: Also, McManus only had 1 point against St Louis…what makes you think Rivers can move the ball better than Manning??

              • Nick says:
                (link)

                @Nick: Im feeling Tucker in the dome, thats a good matchup against NO, no?

                  (link)

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @Nick: A Manning off-day plus injuries to key guys.

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Nick: I see closer games in San Diego’s schedule, and he’s money from long distance. I believe he’s missed two the last two and a half seasons.

              • Nick says:
                (link)

                @Jay: How about Dawson, where does he rank as he was just dropped as well?

  7. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    1) Best pickup for Bradshaw:

    FJax
    West
    Sims
    Crowell
    Ivory

    2) Would you bench Julio Jones for the time being for someone like Matthews, LaFell, Edelman, or M.Bryant (when not on BYE)?

    0.5 PPR – 3 point bonus at 85 yards rec/100 yards rush – 6 point bonus at 135 yards rec/150 yards rush

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian:
      1. Depends on matchups
      2 absolutely not (especially in PPR W/those bonuses)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: I’d go Sims for upside there. No, I’d keep Julio on the active roster.

    With Brandin Cooks out for a while, am I a better play ROS than Cord Patterson?

  9. Jake the snake says:
    (link)

    Howdy jay, would you propose this / is this a fair trade based on my team?

    .20 ppr

    My rbs are gio bernard, jeremy hill, ben Tate, Crowell, jonas gray, & Mason & bradshaw but sounds like he broke his ankle

    My wrs; demaryius thomas, Kelvin Benjamin, odell beckham , jordan matthews & martivis Bryant

    Here’s what I was thinking my d thomas straight up for demarco Murray.

    His WRs are antonio brown, cooks, roddy , torrey smith, bowe, mike Wallace

    His other rbs; DMC, riddick, Montee ball, Pierre Thomas, oliver, asiata, & andre Williams

    He really wants gray too he texted me asking gray for his greg Olsen , include that in the deal making it a 2 for 2?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jake the snake: It’s fine, but I wouldn’t do the 2 for 2.

      • Jake the snake says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        You’d target thst trade then? If not I’d be holding onto d thomas

  10. Grant says:
    (link)

    picked up Gray sunday morning due to Waterloo+ guy saying he would start him, started him over Randle, 50 points. Bad news, Dwayne Allen 0, and Stafford with 6 points, kept my oppenent in the game. He does have Manning and Sanders, as well as Blue. Up by 39 points going into tonight. He has Bell and Brown, still nervous.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Grant: I think you’re okay… but could be close.

  11. Harry Dunn says:
    (link)

    Jay – who do you like early for Week 12? Thanks..

    1) Half PPR – Joique Bell, Tre Mason or Denard Rob
    2) Full PPR – Odell Beck or Josh Gordon

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Harry Dunn: Right now… Probably Mason and Beck. Could change as I start re-watching film. I’m still hedging on Gordon at the moment.

  12. Stanman says:
    (link)

    With Bradshaw and hillman out my rbs are still stable (somewhat) I have Mathews, fjax, t-rich, and sims. It’s not a great situation, but the rest of my team makes up for it. 2 questions though 1. If Bradshaw and hillman are out for the rest of the season do you drop them for anyone in this group (if you could pick 3 cause I’m also dropping a defense)? Helu, L. Blount, C. Hyde, taliaferro, j. Randle, L. Murray (May have landed starting job in Oakland, which is not that great, but at least he’s starting), or john brown.
    2. Do you think Richardson can pick up where Bradshaw left off or do you see a major dip in the colts rb production?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Stanman: Maybe Hyde, and Murray looked good. 2. Eh, their running production was pretty trash to begin with. Unless desperate, I’d stay away.

  13. Nick says:
    (link)

    Drop Witten or Donnell for Tamme or is that crazy thinking Tamme will do anything (even if J Thomas does not return)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’d hold there.

  14. Clint says:
    (link)

    Couple things:
    1) Dude stealin’ the ball from the Bengals chick proves once again, ‘Aints fans are schmucks.

    2) Watching both the Packers and Patriots last night has me fearing for Green Bay in a few weeks when the latter arrives for the Grapple in Green Bay. I think the Pats are going to attempt the exact same strategy against the high octane Packer offense as they did w/Luck’s Colts: pound the ball down their throats, limit possessions, and win when time runs out. If Capers doesn’t figure out how to stop the run by then, we’re toast and so should he be.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Clint: Yeah, luckily, the Saints organization get her a game ball, proving the team itself is not as dickish. To be fair, Capers takes a while to figure out anything, but I still like Green Bay there, by a bit. People like to say the Patriots are the best team right now, but when the Packers offense is going like it is now, it’s not close. Give me that team any Sunday.

  15. Poo Poo Platter says:

    What to do about Julio Jones?? I can’t possibly bench him next week can I? I do have solid other options in Odell Beckham or Jordan Mathews.

    1) Sims or Latavius for a flyer to replace Bradshaw? It’ll be a bench spot, so just looking for someone that could be a huge spark off the bench if I need it. You said Sims earlier, but I forgot to put Murray in those options.

    2) Is J.Matthews the play over LaFell and Edelman in my WR3 slot? I love the numbers the Pats can put up, but their game plan changes so frequently that I can’t seem to count on them to do work every game.

    0.5 PPR – 3 point bonus at 85 yards rec/100 yards rush – 6 point bonus at 135 yards rec/150 yards rush

      @Wilsonian: still like Sims and Edelman there.

    And would you dump Wallace for Stills?

    Do I still keep McCoy over Lacy

    What is fair trade value for Gray at this point (12-team, non-ppr)? With the trade deadline this week, there isn’t really time to see what he does in future games and, as I’m stacked at RB (Charles, L. Bell, Gio/Hill, Mathews) I don’t know that I’ll ever really play him, so would like to see what he could bring in return.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @friar: Something with some value… but people might remain unconvinced.

      • friar says:

        @Jay: What would your guess of “some value” be? Is there another running back who you think might have roughly equivalent value?

    Bell over/under 16.5 points PPR

      @Kevin: Slightly under.

    How much emphasis do you put on remaining schedule as the season draws to a close? Is it worth trading a QB with a tough schedule like Cutler and a solid flex like R Jennings for Romo and his favorable schedule? Cutler and Romo are currently about even in points per start.

      @Wacha Wacha:

      Also which side do you prefer?
      L Fitz and Ellington
      or
      Dez

      @Wacha Wacha: Sure, it’s always on my mind. But that seems like an overpay.

    it’s wagstaff, back from the dead, and yes, we WERE renacting our show right down the street from that bar. i was about to light that skinny little bitch’s car on fire right when you guys left.
    all ROS questions
    1. in standards keep holding a.williams in case roughshod got messed up again or go with one of randle/b.brown/crowell/blount (i own bell (PIT)). this is for RB #6. we can start 2 or 3 of these
    2. drop rudolph (TE and WR are the same, and we can start 2 or 3 of them) for the freer of indentured peoples (j.brown),wright(s), both NE and TEN, clay,cooks,britt,owen daniels,rivera,fleener,witten. yeah you can see how many TE’s are out here when you don’t have to start one. this is for receiver #5, and i also already have olsen/jimmy G/dez/OBJ.
    3. PPR. to activate gordon i have to either keep all of these WR (we start exactly 3)
    gordon/julio/m.bryant/cooks/wayne/garcon
    and only go with 5 RB (we start exactly 2), they are vereen (man i should’ve just stashed gray this whole last month or so)/mathews/ingram (nice waiver pickup here)/miller/hill (ditto here on waivers), or drop garcon and his 3 awful weeks since RG3 ‘s been back and grab a 6th RB (randle/dixon/l.murray (20 yards per return pt)/blount/freeman/starks/crowell). i know none of those have value without an injury, and most of them would only even have value to even me if a lot of things went wrong with my RB’s (whether timeshares for ingram/mathews/hill, or injuries already in place in mathews/miller), yet i only bryant left with bye this week, and i can’t really see myself putting garcon into lineup with RG3 giving him less than 4 catches a game, and never long one(s).

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: I’m fine holding there. Randle isn’t bad either, though I’m not big on him.

      2. Probably Owen there. 3. You can drop Cooks to make room for Gordon.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i just now saw about cooks broken thumb thing. i was surprised you would say he’s drop before that.

    interesting there’s a goon in hockey named cody mcleod, and other than the large pigment difference they seem related.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:

        @Jay: no i meant an actual goon in real life named that. that was a great movie though.

    ok, from this point forward none of sankey outscoring martavis by 9.2 or more, or i get the sankey slap of shame having dropped him this week so my opp with awful RB could pick him up and beat me with it. esp since i only did it this week to grab novak since i didn’t want to drop bailey, damn cardinal rule of not keeping 2 kickers. but this team is fairly weak and i was worried about giving up ANY edge for weeks 14-16.

    • goodfold2 says:

      @goodfold2: def need a non sankey TD here.

      • goodfold2 says:

        @goodfold2: here it comes, countdown of shame.

        • goodfold2 says:

          @goodfold2: still alive. just produce something bryant, then it won’t matter.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @goodfold2: jesus, lead now down to 5.9, since they’re giving their starting RB return duty now, which when spiller did it this year i thought was crazy, but he wasn’t really their only starter.

            • goodfold2 says:
              (link)

              @goodfold2: in our settings he’s now got 4.1 return pts. RUN OUT THE CLOCK, and NO PUNT RETURNS FOR SANKEY PLEASE!

                @goodfold2: Yeah man, what a crazy game. I have to admit, I was at the bar watching this, but down to the wire. Looks to be safe…

    Hey Jay,

    I’m in a 12-team PPR league, and I have Brandin Cooks. For the long haul, should I pick up Jarvis Landry or Kenny Stills?

    Thanks!

      Jay says:

      @AC: Stills… but ugh.

    Do you think Sims will turn into anything this year?

      @Phil: Yes, I do. He looked good against Washington. They just didn’t really need a running game.
