Borat 2, the presidential debate and Thursday Night Football. What do they all have in common? Young girls. We have Rudy G trying to bang a very young woman (allegedly) in Borat 2. We have two 70 year old men bickering like school girls during the presidential debates—no offense to our two school girl readers. And then we have two quarterbacks throwing footballs like little ladies on TNF, or so we expected. But Carson Wentz wasn’t feeling much like a sissy man against the Giants defense, going 25/43 for 359 yards, 7 carries for 14 yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 1 rushing touchdown and 1 interception—he now has 10 passing touchdowns and 5 rushing touchdowns on the season. Pigskinonator saw this huge game coming when nobody else did, ranking Wentz as its #7 QB compared to the FantasyPros expert consensus ranking of #16. The pig-bot is really starting to heat up now that it has more data and extra slop to chew on. Sign up now for a 3-day free trial! Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday for fantasy football:

Boston Scott – 12 carries for 46 yards, 3 catches for 46 yards and his 1st touchdown. There was lots of hype for the Wicked Pissa this week in a juicy matchup with Miles Sanders (knee) on the shelf. It was a very mediocre night until he hauled in the game winning 18 yard TD pass with under a minute remaining. The biggest bail out since Fannie and Freddie.

DeSean Jackson – 3 catches for 34 yards. Appeared to severely hurt his ankle on a *checks notes* punt return? Why is the super injury prone 33 year old returning punts? Our frequent Armenian commenter suggested Zionist overlords pulled some voodoo on DJax’s ankle. Stay turned for injury updates, but I’m not expecting to see Jackson again this season. 

Travis Fulgham – 5 catches for 73 yards. As expected, even with DJax back, Fulgham was still a large factor with his 11 targets. That makes 34 targets in the last three weeks. If you’re thinking, “that’s a lot!” You’re right! And now Jackson is back on the shelf too. Make sure Fulgham is owned in your league. 

Greg Ward – 5 catches for 45 yards and his 3rd touchdown. Ward doesn’t quite bring Fulgham’s upside to the table, but as long as Jackson, Alshon Jeffery (foot) and Jalen Reagor (thumb) are sidelined he’s a viable WR3 flier if you’re in a bind. Somehow I’m always in a bind.

Richard Rodgers – 6 catches for 85 yards. I thought long and hard about jumping on Dick Rod this week. Wait, that came out wrong! With Zach Ertz (ankle) out 3-5 more weeks and Dallas Goedert (ankle) likely not back until after the Eagles week 9 bye, consider grabbing Dick Rod if you need a TE streamer next week.

Daniel Jones – 20/30 for 187 yards, 4 carries for 92 yards, 2 passing touchdowns and 1 interception—he now has 5 passing touchdowns on the season. And one of the funniest trip and falls in history as he faceplanted into the turf on a wide open touchdown run. According to Rudy, all future Giants QBs must accept 5% Eli DNA to get the gig. Checks out.

Devonta Freeman – 3 carries for 8 yards before leaving with an ankle injury. In relief, Wayne Gallman (10 carries for 34 yards, 5 catches for 20 yards and his 1st touchdown) looked about as good as Wayne Gallman can look. He’ll be worth an add depending on the Freeman injury update. Just remember he’s Wayne Gallman and this is the Giants offense.

Darius Slayton – 2 catches for 23 yards. Everyone expected a big game from Slayton, so of course he was the only Giant receiver to disappoint. I’ll be honest, I was caught off guard by Sterling Shepard’s (6 carries for 59 yards and his 1st touchdown) return, but Danny Dimes sure wasn’t—he targeted Shepard a lofty 8 times against the Eagle. I still prefer Slayton by a wide margin moving forward, but Shepard’s worth adding if you’re WR needy in a deeper league. I’d rather spend a steamy night with Dick Rod than start any Giants receivers, including Golden Tate (1 catch for 39 yards and his 1st touchdown).

Evan Engram – 6 catches for 46 yards, 2 carries for 3 yards. Engram dropped a perfectly placed pass in the 4th quarter that would’ve all but sealed the game. The 9 targets after seeing only 5 targets over the past two games makes Engram somewhat intriguing, but he’s no Dick Rod.

    im not armenian; it’s a weird possibly true thing from the shield where somebody was trying to dodge the armenian mob they were told to try going to akron for some reason the armenians aren’t wanting to go there (more so than everybody else, supposedly).

    – if anybody hasn’t seen the shield, you should; first cop drama to show the really nasty cop stuff (yes pre wire). also it’s early goggins (ok he was in stuff 10 years before too; but this is pre gemstones, vice principals, his 3 tarantino movies, justified, sons of anarchy, it started just before house of 1000. corpses)

        For the record, The Shield was just plain awesome. Appointment TV when it ran on FX. And Homicide may be the best ever of the “mainstream” cop shows. Just sayin’

          Donkey Teeth says:

          • For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
            (link)

            it was the precursor to wire. took place in BAL, had a bunch of the same actors/creators/writers. it’s not close to as good, but for it’s time like bob said, one of the best “mainstream” cop shows (i never watched it till later only from the wire stuff). yeah the shield was awesome; i need to go rewatch that yet again at some point (i’ve done at least 2 full rewatches and i mostly watched it every week when it was on TV). the shield is just SUPER revolutionary for all the shows that came later too (and it wasn’t even on premium cable, it was on FX).

          • bobsnyder4210 says:
            (link)

            Not to take anything from The Shield…but Homicide (actually, Homicide: Life on the Street) had a fine ensemble cast including Kyle Secor, Andre Braugher, Richard Belzer (this is the origin of the “Munch” character he player on Law & Order for many years), Yaphet Kotto, Reed Diamond, Daniel Baldwin, Melissa Leo, Michelle Forbes, Callie Thorne, and about 10 more. It would be a stupid long list list to put here, especially if you add in the 30 or so recurring characters and a boatload of great guest stars. But be warned, the entire series is a story arc containing many little episodic and recurring story arc, so once you’re in, you’re in for the long haul. That’s a feature it shares with The Shield.

    Hey, just made this trade in my half ppr 14 team league. Traded Rodgers, Jonathan Taylor, Hurst and Ridley for Russell Wilson, McLaurin, Kareem Hunt and Hockenson. I thought I did well as I am a big believer in Hunt. A couple of people have said I lost the trade. What do you think?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Seems like a fair deal to me.

      Wilson>Rodgers by a lot
      Taylor>Hunt but not too far off
      Ridley>McLaurin by a bit
      Hockenson>Hurst by a bit but they’re just TEs

      Guess I’d give a slight edge to the Taylor side just because Chubb should be back in the fantasy playoffs but certainly wouldn’t say you lost the deal. Russ is a huge upgrade from Rodgers imo, he’s looking like a league winner this year.

    in that engram or hooper 14 teamer PPR i’m running about as good as your 0-7 to start the year thurs (week 6 you picked an early sunday game with no thurs game) games record, EVERY MF’ing week TILL NOW i play engram (i directly only lost once from doing that, last week where i lost by .72 and hooper had 5.2 points more, but i didn’t sweat that decision at all since i had been following everybody’s (and i mean usually far higher on engram for the top 30 FP guys every week) rankings on that. this week i FINALLY flip to hooper, then about 10 minutes ago he suddenly is sick (hadn’t missed one practice at all till today) had to have minor surgery and is out this week (also mixon is out, but that one we all could’ve seen coming, albeit here my options are j.kelley or whoever is in FA from bye weeks)

    1. best TE this week (luckily we have enough IR slots here): l.thomas (it’s probably him), firkser (jonnu appears back), everett (i can wait till later today to see if higbee practices with his hand thing that appeared yesterday, if higbee does miss practice it’s probably just everett here)

    2. any of these better than j.kelley this week? (this league for some silly ass reason has 5 moves limit per week and i got 2 left, so i can’t just say suck up everett right now or one of these till i’m sure): gage, perriman (i just dropped keeping p-will), byrd (or another of those TE’s above here).

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      1. Agree, Thomas or Everett depending on Higbee status
      2. Nah I’d go with Kelley

      • For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
        (link)

        what about gage or perriman or byrd over landry (who i also have, and as of right now have to start from parker/p-will off on bye), could go one of thomas/everett, still start kelley in flex and one of those WR over landry (apparently it’s a BROKEN rib on top of his still not healthy from hip surgery hip). wouldn’t have to drop anybody either. i have no reason not to stash or use somebody for the other mixon/hooper spot for this week. could add dillon or somebody else simply for outside chance stashing.

        • Donkey Teeth

      whew at least in every aaron league except one (but there i snagged gio B a few days ago, so i was already going to bench somebody useful there anyway for him, and had wentz/scott go yesterday, both well) i have j-will (i freaked the F out for a few seconds till i remembered that). also have dillon in 2 dynasties (one where i have all 3 GB guys to my short term detriment). AND HURRAH GB is an early game! man these super late week worries are mounting quick (hooper out of literally nowhere, AAron here)

      – i sub in middle/high schools, so that sketch spoke to me probably more than most people. it’s the flip on how crazy students tend to get when you, somebody who’s never once read nor heard them say their names (and trust me, their parents didn’t learn how english letters work together, at least not at all similar to how i did, and i’m probably MUCH more literate than at least 95% of any of their parents) get just super angry/butt hurt when you mispronounce the way they think those letters sounds to an objective but new to it reader of their names. longer term this would be an easy fix, i’d just write down the letters that produce the sound they want to hear when you call their name, but for somebody who sees them one time it’s hilarious that anybody at all would be expected to know at all that those letters are intended to make THAT exact sound when looking at their printed names.

        for reference basically everybody’s mispronounced my last name my entire life (they tend to just add an “n” where it simply never existed); i never from birth till now cared so i simply don’t get why anybody would get mad at this; but they sure do, at a high %.

    Sup Donkey,

    Hope your Friday is going better than mine, rainy af and boring these last few days,

    Full PPR league need advice at RB:

    Ugly situation at RB this week. Been staying afloat near the top of the league despite losing Barkley and not having a #1RB since Week 2 (technically Week 1 tbh). James Robinson is in my lineup already however I need a secondary option with Myles Gaskin and other low brow option RBs on Bye this week. Unfortunately mostly all viable option RBs are either picked up or picked over. I’m considering playing Adrian Peterson or JD McKissic in my 2nd RB slot. Yea it’s ugly, Halloween ugly for my RB situation and the FA pool in that league. Dart throw considerations maybe? AJ Dillion or Zack Moss in a possible blowout… what are your thoughts on this tragic situation?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Hey Kool Aid,

      I’m starting Zack Moss in one desperate league with Gaskin, Sanders and Chubb out. Hasty is another dart throw who’s probably out there. Going back and forth on those two.

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      mckissic i’m going in similar situation(s) already (esp full PPR, i’m going him this week in at least one half PPR).

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

    check this all of a sudden super weird morass of possible changes from all these late injuries (or worse than we’d have thought say tues ones anyway). 16 team PPR dynasty
    QB tannehill/dalton (this is easy)
    RB (2): drake, dj (HOU)
    WR (3): aj brown (good news whew, but does make extra decisions if he wasn’t playing)
    – kirk (comes into play for sure if nuke is actually out)
    – mclaurin (easy)
    – t.smith (added last night after dropping early in week for firkser, when jonnu didn’t look likely, if sanders and MT are both out this is just too easy)
    – ward (benched already)
    – evans (in IR slot, we can put anybody there with any possible not playing issue, including byes)
    – m-will (he might be the bench for t.smith
    TE: tonyan, firkser (waivering dick rod after dropping him before last night’s game as tonyan didn’t scare me enough to bench him or leave him in IR slot), firkser is the easy drop if i put evans in
    1 flex
    other benches (maybe):
    – kelley (if j-jax is out he becomes interesting)
    – d.harris (no change here)
    IR: goedert, ertz, gaskin (bye)

    not looking for answers here as we’re far too early and too many conditionals in play. at least NO is early sunday, and GB (tonyan, but i’m now in ugly shape if he’s limited or out). getting interesting here in week 7 (mostly just since like yesterday too). sternberger and principal o shag hennessy (eifert out, so i’d have the JAX or GB TE available if tonyan is out)

    • The Harrow says:

      if hurst/cook types are both just in FA (or cook here at least) go with cook for this week. his bye is also over so if you get screwed later you aren’t really screwed.

        I had both Cook and Hurst for a hot second, but then Goedert was available to I jumped on him and coin flipped to drop Cook. I’m high on Goedert with Ertz out and expectation is that Goedert will be back by W10 at the latest

    Hey DT…this is kinda a follow up but bear with me…this is one of my teams that’s still competitive. No-frills 1/2 ppr, got J Williams (dropped my K) in the overnight waiver run, so I have:

    QB/TE/DST/K: Big Ben/Waller/KC/need to pick one up Sunday
    RB: Elliott/Pollard, A Jones/J Williams, Gibson, Bell, Lindsay
    WR: D Adams, Thielen, McLauren, Boyd, JuJu

    Before Jones became a ??, my base RB/WR/Flex this week were going to be: Elliott, Jones, Adams, McLauren, Gibson

    1. Should Gibson or Boyd (or somebody else) be the base Flex this week?
    2. If Jones plays, I need to drop somebody for a K…throw Williams back again? Dump Pollard as the Cowchips implode? Drop somebody else? Drop both handcuffs and get my K and a WR like Kirk or M Williams if I can?

    There’s a Cowchips fan in the league who rosters all available Cowchips so if I drop Pollard I will definitely not get him back from waivers if Zeke gets hurt. This one seemed so easy until yesterday…

    20 team full IDP PPR dynasty. getting worried about slowman (forbath signed). only useful FA kicker with job (and passed his bye) is boswell (who seems to always have a steady floor on that team with their great D and good enough offense). also have to activate mims now to make any moves at all.
    QB (1, max hoarding rule on QB’s as many as you want from one real life team and up to 1 from a 2nd team (doesn’t apply to IR guys, so if say haskins gets ruled out (which he has some of the time since benched) he can be IR’d to open up a roster spot): goff, haskins, k.allen. FA has obv no starters and most possibly good (some not good at all) backups and prospects owned.

    RB: (1): DJ, b.hill, dillon, k.vaughn (the latter 2 drafted with fairly highish picks)

    WR: (2): m-will, aj brown, duvernay (full return yardage here 10 yards per point, duvernay has averaged 12.09 pts per game, for reference aj brown has averaged 20.6 in games he finished, if we count week 1 he averages 17.27), cord patt (averages 17.93 per week even while only barely used in the offense, take away his almost nothing week 6 and it’s 20.99, so he starts somewhere all the time)

    TE (1): tonyan, irv smith, everett (he’ll probably have to be dropped later and will be waivered probably when he is)

    1 flex

    IR (10): ekeler, b.love, j.reed (could easily just be dropped, but did good work for the 1 week i had to start him), mims, t-will (LV, i probably should’ve dropped him before draft, i was on fence, then he got hurt right after)

    LB (3, LOTS of points come from top IDP’s here in this league, esp top LB’s, the years i win (there’s been a few) my LB’s are top notch: l.david (getting old, i’ve had him from year 1 of this league when he was still young and up and coming, but still producing), queen (my 1st rounder this year, all the big name RB were gone already, he’s already a top 20 or better LB), r.evans (TEN, up and coming), olukoun (ATL, probably already better than d.jones as a rookie, very up and coming)

    DE (2): c.campbell, houston, m.fox (LAR pass rushing specialist, best FA DE this week and my 2 are on bye, dropped later)

    DT (2): AAron (number 1 DT easily), j.allen (WAS)

    S (2): (here is where owning top guys also pays off like LB almost): b.baker, simmons, maye (NYJ)

    CB (2): (here the best real life guys usually aren’t close to top scorers (gilmore for instance): s.griffin (getting taken to school weekly, a top 5 CB scorer so far, somebody dropped him, i’ve only used waiver twice this year, both on CB’s), l.ryan (actually plays S a good chunk of the time, i also waivered this year post draft), aj terrell (ATL, highly drafted in real life guy who’s producing big time on BAD defense (which is great for CB and really all IDP’s))

    IR (10): kwon A (SF, high ankle currently, his name value worth more than he is by now, f.warner much better over at SF, and greenlaw gets the stats when kwon is out (i waivered greenlaw in another 20 teamer redraft with start 2 LB and 1 D flex, lost d.bush there. might have to drop or try to trade kwon A later for space plus r.evans and olukoun both have enough value to want to hold them ROS and going forward now (finding useful long term LB is no small thing here, having 4 or 5 good ones that are healthy and steady producers is far better than 3 or less)

    1. drop duvernay or everett for mims activating so i can drop sloman for boswell? (could possibly wait to see if tonyan is ruled out first, but he might not be there by then and i could be in trouble if sloman loses his job to forbath and somebody beats me to forbath, i certainly don’t want to nor have space to hold both LAR kickers to see how that works out). duvernay i found in FA early in year but he’d def be obtained if dropped quickly, people would notice his weekly points from returns. mims i drafted as best left to me WR prospect after i went queen, dillon, k.vaughn in draft. obviously none of us knew about fournette signing when we did our drafts and used the dynasty RB/WR rankings (this drafted with say 2 weeks left till season).

      Yeah I’d lose Everett

    anybody that saw that d-jax injury and how he looked being lifted off his feet off the field entirely knew 2 days before PHI did that whatever he had was worse than a high ankle sprain (it’s a broken ankle, which is far more believable).

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Yeah he knew it was really bad

      • Mordacious Levator says:
        (link)

        he was screaming obscenities and slammed his helmet into the ground (albeit that could just be him saying “another MF’ing injury!!”) but yeah as he was being carried away by 2 guys (completely no weight on the injured ankle at all) it looked more painful than an ankle sprain (to be fair i’ve never had a high ankle (from the recovery times on the many many non high ankle’s i’ve had in my life)); but then again i never had anybody (much less 2 people) help me limp through mine either. as a kid i’d get them doing any of these things:
        1. playing tag, sometimes in grassy fields, with holes in them sometimes, running through a hole without seeing the hole can do nasty stuff to ankles.
        2. basketball (often)
        3. falling/jumping out of trees.

        had one as an adult goofing around drunk, that one was painful for the first 2 days, but then i just barely put any weight on it (hopped up stairs on the other foot, limped or hopped around in general) and it was nearly all the way better about 4-5 days later, but i say better in a normally walking sense, not playing high level sports with a super fast/muscled up body. never broke anything outside of nose, and almost certainly a few fingers/toes (and never bad versions of those). the force that comes down on what they do routinely is far higher level of force than somebody my size could do to itself (similar reasoning on why stanton/judge are hurt all the time, the sheer force of a man that large/muscled swinging a bat that hard), much less other people running/falling on them with that much force.

        – just imagine how completely f’d up the fingers of a 12 year NFL lineman are later. or AP’s or gore’s knees at age 50.

          but it’s always entirely possible that he was only screaming obscenities since the old testament chosen people of god that run the entire world and it’s economy finally got to him, just as he knew they would. can’t hide the truth from him obv.

    16 team dynasty. have tannehill/dalton. dropped foles for dalton. from hoarding rules jimmer G just got dropped, and shortly darnold will have to be (or possibly lock instead of darnold). drop foles for jimmer g or one of those others later?

      • Better Call Limehouse says:

        yeah many of us at least partially bought into the “dalton’s never had weapons this good” and while that’s certainly true he’s also got this:
        1. mccarthy coaching (players are already openly saying stuff like “the man has no idea what he’s doing” etc, nobody can call a.rodgers not a team player, he put up with that idiot for nearly his whole career and never outted how bad everybody knew he was in public, only reason far less people than should be talking about how he’s a top 3 QB ever, similar to marino/peyton (let’s say top 5 anyway) the lack of championships ain’t on them)

        2. DAL’s super injured oline
        3. dalton himself sucks

          claypool’s usage with di jo back is very concerning. good thing for me i’m up against OBJ this week in money league where i played claypool over shenault and late added t.smith (when AAron jones ruled out, already had j-will)

          – wow, now c-sam CAR is getting used like he should’ve been since drafted, it shows up about what once every 6ish games or so.

          • Better Call Limehouse says:
            (link)

            at least with claypool he got shadowed, evans here after 1st half and 23 attempts hasn’t been thrown at once. somebodies named t.hudson and wirfs need to be targeted though. they’re probably playing the old julio jones injured but starting decoy thing, should’ve seen this coming, could’ve started kirk or m-will or even ward earlier in week in one league. it is nice to see fournette back getting used though in that.

            • Better Call Limehouse says:
              (link)

              FINALLY got a target, but LV penalty. on like the 25th target. arians nation/brady a complete joke on using a top 15 WR talent here.

              • Better Call Limehouse says:
                (link)

                ok, finally up to 4 targets (only 2 show up in box score, the other 2 were pass inters he caused), for decent total yards considering 2 catches, but still no idea what kind of scheme they’re running over there. s.miller clearly needs more targets of course.

    fells did nothing and is off week 8 (by week 9 i’d assume akins is back, but that’s not for sure). 2 QB half PPR dynasty: (daily FAAB so i can input claim now for tonight and it’ll take effect week 8, fells seems droppable, i started him over d.harris and lost a handful only of points doing that)
    QB: haskins, rodgers, mahomes, tannehill
    RB (2): ingram (probably gets ruled out and can be IR’d then), kamara, scott, d.harris, mckissic, dobbins,
    WR (3): edleman (this makes no sense on the lack of targets), boyd, k.allen, thielen, p-will
    TE (1): j.smith, fells
    2 regular flexes
    IR (10): michel, ertz, watkins (another reason to do this move now or at least before tues, in case watkins takes forever to get ruled out for week 8), ekeler, penny

    options over fells: dick rod, hamler, burton, pascal, t.smith, gus the bus (in case he gets the ingram work, not dobbins)

    • Mantis Tobaggan MD says:

      2. different league, 12 team super flex, i have newton/wentz/bridge (i’ve now benched all of them at least once, bridge too often by this point), went to input claim for stidham (FAAB, but not every day, wed morning it starts) and noticed somebody dropped k.allen. for at least a while i have a roster hole (AAron jones last few hours till gametime rule out), later if he’s back next week could drop say perriman when jones is back, but before any of that could obtain either:
      stidham or k.allen (could just say screw NE’s QB’s entirely and hold k.allen)

    holy shit, metcalf tracking down baker on that pick is the most oddly impressive thing i’ve seen him do, seeing how large he is, to beat an all pro safety who appeared to be running at least close to as fast as he could’ve.

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      yep, and with ARI’s coach deciding to give away even the 3 pts they should’ve had (my god it’s gross owning z.gonz with this coach, at least once a week he pulls this shit and gives away at least 2 pts if not more from what most team’s kickers would get), metcalf literally stole 3-7 points (from the bad coaching it was 7) from ARI.

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        wow, i wonder if the ARI players would’ve rather just not had to play OT at all. they should ask their coach what he thinks about it. it was entirely up to him.

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          yeah kingsbury, he’s a similar kind of genius that SEA’s twat is (see that one super bowl, or ask lynch about it); he’s now stolen wins either later or directly with icing his own kicker, which then led to said kicker getting rattled enough to miss an easy kick. they still might win/tie/lose by it’s not often a coach steals a win from his team twice. these clever guys are hilarious.

          • The Harrow says:
            (link)

            wow, i wonder if gase got “wins” like this somebody’d try to give him credit for them.

            The worst part was kicking the 41 yarder on 2nd down while they’re moving the ball at will. JFC

            • The Harrow says:
              (link)

              yeah i forgot how silly that was, and it appeared part of kingsbury’s icing his own kicker was him 2nd guessing whether or not he should even be doing that. the drive was like this pretty sure:
              – short pass for about 7
              – 32 yard run
              – murray 6 yd run
              – murray stopped in backfield -5

              dude seriously needs coaching lessons. should ask madden players.

              • The Harrow says:
                (link)

                there were some BAD picks in that game, mostly from RW3, but murray’s was awful too. ARI’s D did finally become really good in late 2nd half and most of OT. basically it was kingsbury throwing away wins twice, and RW3 always giving them right on back.

                • The Harrow says:
                  (link)

                  i say finally since RW3 had 250 pass, and like 50 or 70 rush in the first half.
