Remember Jason Pierre-Paul’s infamous firework accident that resulted in a mangled hand, and eventually a club hand which he’d use to beat offensive linemen over the head? We came into Thursday night’s Cardinals at Seahawks game expecting all kinds of beautiful fantasy fireworks, but instead we were left with a limp disfigured hand. Hopefully we can transform this disappointment into our own club hand. It wasn’t all bad news though, as Carlos Hyde played it safe with bottle rockets and sparklers in his return from his hamstring injury. Hyde took 14 carries for 79 yards and 2 catches for 16 yards, adding in his 3rd touchdown. But don’t get too excited about playing Hyde the sausage with Carlos, odds are Chris Carson (foot) makes his return in week 12. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday for fantasy football:

Russell Wilson – 23/28 for 197 yards, 10 carries for 42 yards and 2 passing touchdowns—he now has 30 passing touchdowns on the season. Russ has been feeding his fantasy owners dog food the past few weeks. Sure, it’s been high quality dog chow. That reminds me, my mom used to cook our dogs an organic chicken breast, brown rice and bone broth dinner every night while my brother and I had frozen pizza. Not even DiGiorno or Tombstone, we got the knockoff Jack’s. This is all to say, Russ’s dog food is just as good as most QB’s gourmet cuisine.  

D.K. Metcalf – 3 catches for 46 yards and his 9th touchdown. D.K. had a couple hilarious drops Thursday; well, hilarious if you were playing against him, depressing for those of us starting him. The drop in the end zone at the end of the first half literally hit him in the face! Oh, and he also had a big catch called back on an irrelevant holding call. This could’ve been another huge game.

Tyler Lockett – 9 catches for 67 yards and his 8th touchdown. Lockett was questionable coming in with a knee injury, but Sneaky Pete insisted his status was never in doubt. Of course this is the same guy who said Carson was a “true game-time-decision” four weeks ago. Regardless, Lockett looked himself and now will have nine days to rest up before their next game. He remains a locked in WR1. 

Kyler Murray – 29/42 for 269 yards, 5 carries for 15 yards and 2 passing touchdowns—he now has 19 passing touchdowns on the season. I’ve become accustomed to 60-100 rushing yards and at least one rushing TD from Kyler. You can’t just take those drugs away from an addict! The surprise of the night may have been the resurgence of the Seattle defense who looked legit while hurting Murray’s throwing shoulder in the early going. Hopefully our man’s back at full strength with the extra rest this coming week.

DeAndre Hopkins – 5 catches for 51 yards. I’ve got an idea, how bout Hopkins just runs down to the end zone every play and Kyler chucks it up?

Christian Kirk – 4 catches for 50 yards. Pigskinonator projected Captain Kirkoff for 4 catches and 54 receiving yards in this one. Dang, that’s a sharp pig-bot! Hey Rudy, give him an extra serving of slop today. 

Kenyan Drake – 11 carries for 29 yards, 4 catches for 31 yards and his 5th touchdown. The Drake is clearly back in charge of the Cards backfield. He might be a back end RB1 rest of season. I told you The Drake is good. 

Chase Edmonds – 2 carries for 13 yards, 4 catches for 36 yards and his 4th touchdown. While The Drake had a solid game with plenty of opportunity, Edmonds on the other hand bailed out his fantasy owners with a 2nd half touchdown reception. The final fantasy numbers look close between the two, but the usage wasn’t very close at all. Consider Edmonds a desperation flex option at best.

    jacks’s was close to the best if not the best frozen pizza, we ate tons of those things at sleepovers where all we did for near entire weekends were video games, music and frozen pizzas. what is odd is your dogs being cooked human sounding food. wonder if any trades were attempted.

    – t.hill supposedly now in over winston.

    • The Harrow says:

      i’m saying this about late 80’s- 1990’s frozen pizzas, after that i have no idea really at all. i’ve had some, but probably even at the time paid absolutely no attention as the box was probably thrown out without me having seen it at all.

      Jack’s was great but these were knock off Jack’s I’m talking about.

      Saw on Taysom…should be interesting!

      • The Harrow says:

        oh i thought you meant jacks’s were a knockoff of those other brands, got it. yeah a knockoff of jack’s, probably notta too gooda.

        We always had Red Baron or Celeste as a kid. Then I discovered Freschetta when I grew up and found what I’d been missing out on.

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          it’s quite possible freschetta didn’t exist in mid 90’s or earlier as i have no memory of all of it existing at that time (at least in my general midwestern area), red baron wasn’t horrible either. celeste i don’t remember but if it was runnng around late 80’s to late 90’s probably had it.

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            You’re right, that it didn’t come out until the mid 90’s. So distribution might not have been that wide around then.

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          I don’t think I ever had Freschetta either but I remember the commercials. I liked tombstone, especially once they came out with the garlic crust.

          • Cram It says:
            (link)

            Freschetta’s always been my favorite. But with all these “craft” brands now, there ‘s a lot of high quality stuff out there. Matter of fact, I had a Screamin’ Sicilian Pepperoni recently, and god damn if that wasn’t the best frozen pizza I may have ever had.

    golladay and likely dola out this week (also swift somehow got a concussion at practice yesterday, out for sure), marv jones, start now. stafford is playing (pretty sure staff infection has played through stuff like this finger thing on numerous parts of his body going back career and did quite fine most of the time at least dozens of times). move marv jones ahead of a lot of people this week. also somebody (ies) in 20 teamers where they either have REALLY horrible injury luck and/or they are inactve since like sept 10th or earlier it might be time to get happy if they’re still starting carry-on, but even now, probably not. but be careful tapping on the shoulders of those doing that to tell them the happy news, since they are either horribly unlucky, deadbeat fantasy owners, and/or actually deceased.

    Swift not looking good for this week. My rb has been a mess all year starting with losing barkley. Lucky I added hyde. I still need another one.. what about kerryon Johnson (Peterson owned). My other option is gus edwards (fa) henderson or latavius Murray (own both) or wilkins, mattison, akers, pollard (fa’s). .5 ppr. I am in a pinch. Thx

    • Donkey Teeth

      Yup, Swift seems doubtful.

      Not crazy about those options but I’d go with Henderson.

    seriously weird this mixon thing. whatever went on with his foot he finished the last game he played in with it. then they clearly should’ve IR’d him if he was out this long (do they share doctors with the NY mess or something here?) it’s almost like somebody told them the kind of shit p.carroll spouts out about his players about mixon and they believed that he was truly close to playing each one of those weeks even though he hasn’t practiced since the day before the game he did something to his foot.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I don’t get it either

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        somebody named tom P at NFL network thinks otherwise. does he notice a player that played and finished a game back on oct 18th (about to be 5 weeks to the day in a few days) hasn’t practiced ONCE since that and for some reason wasn’t IR’d. had a bye during that too with probably less days in which he could’ve even made anything worse practicing on it. that’s probably exactly what happened too, either them leaving him in on oct 18th made whatever it was worse or he just str up lied and they are too dumb to have any idea how bad whatever this foot thing is/was. if it was baseball they could’ve backlogged an IR stint, but that doesn’t appear legal in football anyway or we’d have seen it by now (probably a bunch of times)

        https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player/1624/joe-mixon

        this soooo smacks of NY mess in baseball levels of complete ineptitude from their “medical” staff.

          Haha yes not practicing for a month is kinda serious by definition

          • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
            (link)

            and now it’s min 8 weeks out (IR’d just now so weeks 11-14 out for sure). apparently CIN waited till somebody in the media (this tom P fella at nfl network just got whatever believability he used to have go right on out the window i’d say, for sure, he waits ONE DAY before the dude gets IR’d 5 weeks after the injury to say what he said) commented that it “wasn’t a serious injury” to do something useful about this.

    If I’m poised to make it to the playoffs easily with a bye, should I trade Josh Allen for Tannehill? It seems like he has the better playoff schedule

      Nah, I’d keep Allen

    Standard scoring league. Please rank the following:

    Perine at Chargers
    Fulgham at Browns (No Myles, weather?)
    Taylor v Pack
    Watkins at Raiders

    Thanks!

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:

      Taylor, Perine, Fulgham.

      No problem!

    16 team dynasty league with max QB’s like this, anybody can be in IR slot that isn’t playing or might not play for any reason. can have as many from one real life team active as you want (can’t leave people in IR slots off bye without flags and can’t add players at all if leaving non flagged guys in IR slots) and up to 1 from a 2nd real life team (so can’t have 3+ active QB’s from 3+ teams)
    i have tannehill/dalton (recently pulled up from IR slot), these in IR slots: mullens, jimmy g (he can stay there possibly all, at least most of ROS). drop dalton for t.hill? just in case. winston was owned all year by somebody. earlier in year i had trubisky then foles (both for a while with one in IR slot)

    • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
      (link)

      mullens has to come up next week anyway so really this is dalton vs mullens vs t.hill longer term.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:

      Sorry missed this one. Yeah I’d swap for taysoms upside….

    1. Got singletary off waivers and dropped ozigbo. Is Singletary the best out of ozigbo, Coleman, Justin Jackson? Yes, the FA pool is that thin in a deep 14m

    2. Starting Meyers or Mike Williams

    3. Tannehill at Bal or stafford w all the injuries to the lions

    • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
      (link)

      probably singletary, ozigbo, coleman, j-jax that order
      2. meyers for sure if PPR
      3.i’m going staff still, albeit people might not be weighing how injured BAL’s D is right now.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      1. Singletary
      2. Williams standard, Meyers PPR
      3. I’d go Tannehill

      • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
        (link)

        3. that’s true that since BAL’s D is so injured right now it’s probably tannehill’s only not completely horrible matchup in this window he has of schedule

  11. Trader says:
    (link)

    Tua or Tannehill

    Taylor or Kerryon

    Eagles or Chiefs

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      1. if he’s saying tannehill over stafford (above) this’ll be tannehill
      2. JT (every indication would be that AP is still working over carry-on, for what reason i have no F’ing clue but that’s what it’s been all year)
      3. this is close but FP’s top 20 rankers say KC is 10th and PHI 12th.

      • Trader says:
        (link)

        Thanks!

        1. I think FP has it flipped – Eagles 10th, Chiefs 12th (24 pickers). Part of me wants to trust the Chiefs after a bye week. If it is raining and windy in Cleveland, then maybe the Eagles.

        2. Good point on Lions. I will flip a coin on JT or Fulgham both who I have rostered. I also have Perine but feels a week or so too soon.

        WDYT?

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          2. fulgham if PPR over JT for me, seems floor is safer (fulgham’s ONE bad game last week when top CB shadowed, we don’t know that will happen again, it hadn’t happened before to him). just checked at FP (top 20 flex PPR and only last 2 days, players DO move a ton from all sorts of reasons) and it’s JT 102nd and fulgham 58th, so not even that close in PPR.
          1. i just did it again, left it to only 20th or better and yeah yr right (i think earlier i left it to ONLY top 20 and ONLY the last 2 days, but with team D’s unlike single players that doesn’t usually move much all week, usually, maybe with weather changes it might), and yeah PHI 10th, KC 11th.

          • The Harrow says:
            (link)

            for sunday morning rankings of players i’d ONLY use sunday’s stuff or maybe sunday’s + sat’s as earlier week rankings all the time move all over the place, some people assume guys are playing when they won’t be, others assume nobody is till they are announced, either way if they don’t update their rankings till say at least sat night usually those are outdated in many instances. and when you see the date for sat you don’t know if that’s 6 am sat ranked or late sat (and players get ruled out/in all the time after 6 am sat)

            • Trader says:
              (link)

              Appreciate the input. Great points. More context:

              Standard scoring league. PPR would def be Fulgham but here we are.

              Tied for first playing best team but I am a slight favorite with Hyde doing well on Thursday and Cook’s projection. So a high floor would be nice from my flex. Leaning Fulgham if weather is ok in Cleveland. Myles being out is helpful to Wentz as well.

              Tough week to have Monty, Gaskin and Golladay out.
              Take care!

              • The Harrow says:
                (link)

                oh i know i have tons of mixon (2)/golladay (3 leagues, 14-20’s too)/d-mont (4 leagues)/j-jax (4 leagues). in one 14 teamer (keep 4) my keepers were golladay (missed most of year with 2 injuries), aj brown (missed early part of year), sutton (injured about 2-3 days after draft), watson (horrible till coach was canned). did get lucky in one spot where i had these after draft: aaron jones (keep 4 he’s one), l.bell (yikes), howard (lost 2 jobs by now was dropped long ago), duke jo (dropped then reaquired later), now have b.hill, aaron, duke, gio (both these latter 2 end up being VERY valuable late fantasy season), i gotta run i’ll type more later.

                • The Harrow says:
                  (link)

                  gaskin (3 spots, including one where i needed RB’s badly, one the same one where i got lucky on duke jo and gio b starting far longer than they should’ve been based on the nature of the starters’ injury type or news indicating anything about longevity of said injuries (mixon/d.johnson))

  12. Trader says:
    (link)

    DT, let’s get your final opinion in here….standard scoring league.

    1. Tua (at Broncos), Tannehill (at Ravens) or Bridgewater (v Lions)?

    2. Eagles at Cleveland (low 40’s, 60% rain, 15-25 wind) or Chiefs coming off a bye and headed to a revenge game at Las Vegas?

    3. Safest at flex…Taylor v Green Bay, Kerryon at Panthers or Fulgham at Browns?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      1. Tannehill
      2. Chiefs

        I was scrolling through a ranking service and saw you ranked the Eagles well ahead of the Chiefs on Fantasy Pros yesterday. What changed?

          (link)

          I hadn’t tweaked my defense rankings since Wednesday. As the week went on I like the chiefs more and more coming off the bye week. Think they should be extra motivated for revenge against the raiders…

          I have the chiefs number 5 and the eagles number 7, so not much separation still.

    good night, some terrible 1st half QB play all over the place, i can’t remember this many of them doing this badly in 1st half of an early slate: newton, tannehill, luton (expected here), staff infection (CAR’s D is shit), wentz, a.smith (CIN’s D is shit). i’m starting everyone of those in at least one spot except for luton. aj brown getting nasty hurt frmo tannehill (one aj brown drop though)

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      every one of those leagues is a 14 teamer or super flex except staff in one 12 teamer (stream the QB it’s a dynasty i have tua for long term). i wasn’t going newton over staff, i’m just not, unless staff had a bad matchup
