Greetings!!! Week two was hella crazy, ya’ll; Adrian Peterson suspended for child endangerment, A.J. Green going down with a toe injury before making a single reception, and Jake Locker being beyond atrocious. Okay, well, maybe that last one wasn’t so shocking… but every soul on earth other than the legendary, Jay(Wrong), had Locker going HAM and eggs on the what was supposed to be pathetic defense of the Dallas Cowboys. Thinking about the once salivating thought of Locker to Justin Hunter, now sickens me beyond a level I believed only possible in the depths of Hades. More on these two bricks, later. My first four picks in my highest money league were as follows: Peterson, Alshon Jeffery, Andre Ellington, and Rob Gronkowski. Needless to say, I’m 0-2 and almost b*tch slapped my chicken out of anger. But then, I thought of Michael Vick, Ray Rice, Da Kraken, and the aforementioned AP, and decided to instead, hug my chicken, Beatrice, for love is the answer ya’ll. I’m Tehol Beddict, the only former-male thong model in history to be published in any form of sports writing, and this is, Disgrace/Delight! Take Heed!

Players Who Disgraced Themselves

Toby Gerhart- Your name is Toby! 7 carries for 8 yards? Your name is Toby! 2 receptions for 9 yards? Your name is Toby!  If Tobes had 1/1,00,000nth the resolve and testicular fortitude of Kunta Kinte, he’d be a damned Hall of Famer. Unfortunately, for Jags fans and his fantasy owners alike, watching Gerhart play football stings more ruefully than the combined forces of 500 incensed, Portuguese men o’ war, only nobody can relieve the pain by urinating all over you, R. Kelly style. The talent in Jacksonville is inadequate, and the high effort and supportive act of the new coaching staff is wearing thin.  If you believe Tobes is superior to my man, Todman, you’re lying to yourself. The search for a great white hope at running back continues on with no end in sight.

Torrey Smith- Another week, another bum a*s performance from my main man Torrey Smith! 1 catch for 10 yards, on 3 targets? Ughhhh. Daddy, make it stop! Per usual, Torch drew a pass interference call in what would have surely been a TD, but I’m sure, you, much like me, Beddict tha nut smuggla, are extremely tired of these results. Smith is the Matt Damon of fantasy football; every time out you expect a blockbuster success with an Academy award nominated performance and instead you get, Elysium. I can’t lie, tho, Damon absolutely slaughtered his performance in Eurotripand that makes up for many of his countless duds. We need that type of performance from Torrey, soon and not only is it a possibility, but in my humbly precognitive mind, it’s an absolute certainty. Torrey is coming……Scotty doesn’t know!!!

Rob Gronkowski- 4 receptions for 32 yards on 6 targets? This isn’t what we signed up for, Gronk. The once physically imposing Gronkowski is now about as fragile as the Ukrainian eggs I made in grade school. The Hoodie, that trickster, that worm, has flipped the script on us, insisting upon now running the ball down opponents throats. Let’s hope that has something to do with blowing the Vikings’ backs out and not some new strategy. With that being said, Gronk was once the best overall tight end in football, by a long shot, and now he’s only out there on passing downs. You’re right to be concerned as this is much worse than I imagined. I’ll pray to the Elder Gods and possibly slay an Ox in their honor, in the hopes they magically heal this once lovable moron.

Montee Ball- How does Ball only get 12 carries in a game where Denver had the lead the entire way? The former Wisconsin bruiser will no doubt accrue some solid statistics and no doubt have a few multi short-yardage TD games, but I’m dismayed over the lack of explosiveness he’s shown and he’s a downgrade from Moreno, most certainly.  It pains me to say this, but C.J. Anderson looks like the superior player to me right now. Maybe they should have drafted Hyde or Hill this year instead of grabbing another WR for no reason. Just a thought. Anyway, don’t panic, cuz Ball will bounce back and grind out yardage. It’s just puzzling that Denver never attempted to run it in any of the times they were inside the 5 yard line. And that my friends, is a fantasy owner’s worst nightmare. Freddy Kruegerish, even. Yikes!

Justin Hunter- 2 recpetions for 26 yards on 6 targets. Since I haven’t watched both Titans games in their entirety, I cannot say whether it’s been Hunter  or Locker’s fault when it comes to the incompletions on the deep balls. What I can say is that everyone and dey Momma (Including me) was predicting a J-Hunt explosion against the Cowboys this Sunday. Two things: 1) The Cowboys defense isn’t nearly as horrific as we imagined the case and 2) Locker simply isn’t good enough to influence the breakout numbers we hoped Hunter would achieve. Not much we can do with Hunter at this moment but pray. Get on your knees.

Adrian PetersonAdrian, it’s 2014. Please stop hitting your kids in what is surely the few times per year you actually see them. That is all.

Jake Locker- 18/34 for 234 , with 1 gift TD from Delanie Walker, 2 picks and 9 yards rushing? Maybe I’m overreacting (shocker) but other than Matt Cassel or Chad Henne’s elephant excrement performances, Locker was as bad as any QB on the field this past week. He should be one of the fastest QB’s in the league, so the fact that he doesn’t run more often is infuriatingly puzzling. There are some solid pieces in place for the Titans but if Locker doesn’t get it together soon, they will be moving on from their former top 10 pick. I don’t blame them.

Matt CasselMorbidly disgusting.

Non NFL Disgrace

Stitches- Brick in Yo Face Oh. My. God. How did I just happen to discover this tonight? Uhhhhh, is this real? Is this Dug Fister? the legendary draftkings player from Twitter? Is this awesome? I’m not really sure what this is, but it feels right placing it in the disgrace column. Either way, I can’t stop watching it. Maybe we can get him on the razzball radio? He would quickly pass Peter King, as our greatest guest of all time. Wow. Just, Wow.

 

Players Who Delighted:

Matt Asiata– There is no way the Vikings allow Peterson to play with the Governor of Minnesota stepping up and saying he should’t be allowed to take the field. Asiata is has shown to be a capable fantasy point getter, and showed some explosiveness in his wide open touchdown reception this week. HOWEVER, I believe it will be tough sledding this week in New Orleans, as the 0-2 Saints are looking to unleash some built up stress. Much like, Peter North, off of a celibate month, 2 dozen oysters, and a pound of canned tuna, this is about to get nasty.  There’s always the chance Asiata gets a short TD but I’d only start him if your hand is forced. Still, a solid past week for, “AsMan,” and definitely deserving of a coveted spot in the delight section. Kudos to him.

Antonio Gates– I’m assuming you didn’t have Gates in your lineup as he was going up against the vaunted Seattle Seahawks defense……..For those of you who don’t know, I live in and am from Seattle, and that was one of strangest games I’ve ever witnessed. Phillip Rivers has never been more magical than he was on Sunday afternoon during that insane heat wave in San Diego. Seriously, a couple of those TD throws he made to Gates were almost physically impossible. Oh well, you live and you learn….or you just missed out on the playoffs because you benched Gates. I did the same thing…..It huuuuuuuuurts. As far as Gates going forward, I love him! He’s back to being a top-5 tight end in my opinion so be ecstatic you got him near the end of your draft as did I.

Jay Cutler– My respect for Jay Cutler reached Ultimate Warrior level heights. After Jay took that jack hammering to the sternum I believed he’d be done for the night in what was surely a blowout. Instead, he led them to a TD before the half and absolutely torched the Niners secondary in the 2nd  for 3 more. If Jeffery is back at full strength this week, look out! Oh yea, and he still drills that hottie from, The O.C. I guess it’s his wife, which makes it not as cool, but still cool nonetheless.

df5a7e336cfd700df1ef93040018ed85_width_640x

Mohamed SanuNot only did this former 2nd rounder catch a 76 yard bomb for a TD last week but he threw a 50 yard pass well. That’s how you make the delight sections, playaz. Sanu is obviously a great play this week, also, as A.J. Green is out and Marvin Jones still hasn’t returned, making Sanu, Dalton’s top WR target on the day. Much like a midget at a urinal, opposing defenses are going to have to stay on their toes.

Darren Sproles152 receiving yards!!!? And a rushing TD to boot!? I haven’t witnessed a little guy achieving such inspirational levels of greatness, since Wee Man in Jackass 3.

Demarco Murray– Runaway train, never going baaaaack! Nah, peeps, this ain’t Soul Asylum, it’s DeMarco Murray, and he’s out for blood. Murray is coming off back to back prime time performances and much like Tom Hanks’s acting career in the 90’s, I expect him to be a major success each and every time he touches the field. The Cowboys should have one of the best, if not THEE best, offensive line in the NFL and Murray looks hungrier than a 40 year old housewife who just stopped taking adderall. Dig in, DM!!!!! Kudos if you drafted Murray this season. I didn’t.

Jimmy Graham– I bet this guy pisses pure plantinum and skeets flawless diamonds. Seriously, there’s never been and maybe never will be, a more talented pass catcher playing the tight end position. This is why a tight end is now going in the top 8 overall, of fantasy drafts everywhere. Mind bottling.

Delanie Walker– I’ve always been a fan so it was splendid to witness D-Walk getting funky on the Cowboys this past week, sadly, for a losing cause. It’s doubtful Walker has another performance on par with this for the remainder of the season but you could do worse than throwing him out there. If only there was someone with greater accuracy, throwing him the pigskin. Ahhhh, one can dream, right?

Non NFL Delights

Destiny– Best game to come out thus far on X-Box one, without a doubt. If you love Halo, then you’re gonna cream in your pants over this one. I keep tweeting for you guys to game with me but nobody ever responds…..Woe is me. Anyway, the wait for quality games has been painful, but Destiny makes up for it. Send your significant other on a weekend vacation with her girlfriends, pour yourself a glass of red wine, hit the hash oils, and let the good times roll.

Ray Donovan- After a painfully slow beginning to season 2, the last 3 episodes of, RD, have been the most excellent television I’ve seen in months (Pornhub doesn’t count just because you connected your computer to the TV to watch it on the big screen). I highly suggest you hop on this show ASAP. If not for me, then for Jon Voight.

 

Thanks for joining me for another edition of Disgrace/Delight. As always, Ienjoyed myself immensely and I hope at least one of you readers did too! I appreciate you guys so much (I’m crying tears of joy right now)! As per usual, your comments and questions will be responded to quickly below and I also recommend you following me on Twitter at @Tehol143. My Gambling picks are being moved to Saturdays so I will just be giving you my Thursday Picks on these posts from now on. ATLANTA (+6.5)  is an easy call for me. Would you bet on Tampa Bay right now? Needless to say my picks were horrendous last week but we’ll get into that on Saturday. TTYL (Talk to you later).

      @jcg: From the bottom of my heart, jcg, thank you. Get Destiny and team up with me and conquer the galaxy. Ok, this is getting weird. Anyway……I would totally stick with the guys you already have in place. Torrey is going to explode so at worst you’ll be able trade him for something of value if you’re already stacked at wideout.

      Ingram is out so Robinson is that much more valuable. I would probably drop Green for Moreno and hold him till he gets back as he’s a starter. You could probably also drop Crowell for a james jones or even Blue if you believe Arian foster will miss time like most people do. Thanks for reading

    I was offered Ridley/Cruz for my Edelman in a 10-team non-ppr…I’m leaning against it as I have plenty of RB depth & not much WR depth..what are your thoughts?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @Nick: Get this done, ASAP!!!! Nicholas, the championship is yours if you desire it. TAKE IT!

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I’m getting mixed reviews from the other bloggers regarding this trade..probably cause I don’t need Ridley, see my wr/rb/TE below;

        I have Cobb Edelman, Wallace, bowe & g Jennings at wr and Murray, Matthews, R Jennings. Rainey, k Davis, Hyde at rb & Witten/gates at TE..what do you think?! Trade or no??

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Nick: non ppr I’d still take cruz over Edelman straight up. Ridley is a bonus this isn’t even a debate for me

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Tehol Beddict: Hmm, why are you so high on Cruz when he has not performed at all through 2 weeks? I can understand the buy-low, but every other blogger is saying NO to this trade based upon my roster (with all my RB depth) not to mention I would have to drop a player to make this trade happen

            • Tehol Beddict says:
              (link)

              @Nick: I’m not ready to say he’s gonna have a terrible season based off 2 games, no. Also as gronk and Dobson get healthier with amendola and Wright Edelman wouldn’t dominate targets. Just my thought that u could do better dude no doubt about it

            • Tehol Beddict says:
              (link)

              @Nick: your running back depth won’t look so good when Charles and Doug Martin come back

  3. Parkeys and Recreation says:

    Just got Destiny and its awesome. But everyone is already level 9000, haha. Always down to play.
    Anyway, I have a trade question:

    My Woodhead and Vincent Jackson for his Aaron Rodgers.
    PPR league, 6 pts per passing TD.

    Lineup

    QB Matt Ryan
    RB Eddie Lacy
    RB Justin Forsett
    WR Julio jones
    WR Vincent Jackson
    WR Victor Cruz
    TE Jordan Cameron
    FLEX Kelvin Benjamin

    A lot of interest in Ryan. My thought is to get Rodgers and then flip Matty Ice for an RB or WR.

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Parkeys and Recreation: Okay dude, well the first step is giving me your gamer tag. Mine is some weird jargon that x box gave me after removing my original name due to its inappropriateness . I will change it shortly.

      That would be a great trade, but Ryan should have monster year so it doesnt seem worth it to give up V-jax to me. although the Bucs offense makes me second guess that. Oh just read the last part of what you said. Sure go ahed and do it if you think you can get a capable replacement for Ryan. Just try and have something in place before you pull the trigger.

  4. Lopes says:

    Given Rudolphs matchup in New Orleans would you play Gates(BUF) over him?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Lopes: I mean, it’s not the worst matchup in the world but yea, at this point I’d probably rank Gates ahead of him. WOuldnt shock me for Rudolph to score but I think the Saints are going to slaughter the vikings this week.

      • Lopes says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: What I figured, Watching the patriots game Rudolph had two drops that he should’ve caught and I am instilled in the Bellicheck way where if you drop anything that means you won’t play a down the next game haha.

        • LT Murray IV

          Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Lopes: With that being said, the Vikings will be down and throwing, but if Cassel is anything like he has been , that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to put up points and I think the Saints come out hungry

  5. BoBoBrazil says:
    (link)

    Tehol –
    Trade offered to me in 12-team league. Note: my QB is Big Ben right now.
    I have decent depth at RB (Lacy, Gore, Ridley, Richardson, D-Williams, Rainey)

    I was offered Cam Newton for Ridley and also offered…
    Cam Newton for Richardston.

    Do I take either trade or stick with Ben or another QB like Cousins on waiver wire.

    If I do take trade, who should I trade Ridley or Richardson?

    Thanks,

      @BoBoBrazil: BoBo!!!! TAKE THE TRADE AND RUN!!! dumping either one of them is fine but I’d probably prefer to give up T-rich as the guy continues to amaze by swallowing moose dong.

    Well, the bad news is that I have A.J. Green, Jamaal Charles AND Jordan Cameron on my team. The good news is that I’m not going down without a fight. And, also, I drafted Sproles even though everyone told me I was dumb for doing it AND beat ’em all to pickup Knile Davis on the waiver.

    But, now I have some decisions to make. Here’s my lineup as I see it. What do you think?

    QB – Foles
    WR – Wallace
    WR – Fitz
    RB – Sproles
    RB – Davis
    TE – Bennett
    Flex – J. Bell
    D – Carolina
    K – Hauska

    Bench
    All my goddamn super stars.
    Reggie Bush
    Forsett
    Wheaton

    Thanks much! :-)

      @Paige Holden: Paige!!! You beauty! You’re back! Genius decision by you in drafting Sproles! who told you, you were dumb? I’ll beat them senseless. Let me at them. Sorry, I got a little worked up. The only tough decision here is wether to start Bush or Bell. Its the Packers run defense so they could both have big games. THe power backs have had great success thus far against Green bay so Bell may be the right choice but Bush could easily break off a few big plays. The rest of your team is perfect and ready to rock. thanks for reading

        @Tehol Beddict: Well, shucks. Thanks, charming!

        I’m the only girl in the league so they pretty much tell me everything I do is dumb. Because, hey, girls don’t know football! I’m also the only Eagles fan so, there’s that too. I always have to have some birds on my team to make it more fun.

        Thanks for the vote of confidence – I think I might actually feel good about this weekend!

    I have some questions and you have my heart. My lineup right now for H2H PPR (1pt):

    RB – Stacy (Dal), Jennings (Hou)
    WR – Megatron (GB), Hilton (@Jac), Wallace (KC)
    FLEX – Khiry (Min)

    Bench RB – Forsett (@Cle), TWest (Bal)
    Bench WR – Lee (Ind), Wheaton (@Car), Wright (@Cin), Sanu (Ten)

    Should I make some changes or hold?

      Tehol Beddict says:

      @kisses: Besos!!! Sanu is intriguing and I touched on that in this post. You could maybe squeak him in as a flex but Khiry should get major work. I think you’re good to go, girl?

  9. Steve Stevenson says:

    Dynasty league, who is your first drop out of Michael and J. Matthews? Will need to dump one when my SEA D is on bye next week. As the Foster owner, would you add Blue over the other one of them?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Michael has the most dynasty upside, as it’s possible he’s the starting tailback next season in Seattle. Matthews is very intriguing, especially with Whitey underwhelming and Maclin a free agent. It’s truly a very difficult decision but I believe Matthews has more immediate upside with Michael being the home run threat for you. For this season, Blue would work but I don’t have high hopes for him career wise.

    Long term upside 10 team PPR…?

      @TrashJuice: I’d like to start off by saying that I love your name. Terrence Williams is the easy call here. He was a 6th or 7nth round choice for a reason. Unless Romo is truly done, I expect some monster games from Williams.

    Tehol, bro-

    Great column as always. I’m a little nervy about starting Ellington vs the 49ers this week in my 1PPR league after San Fran shut down Forte last week.

    Would you start Asiata over him?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @AZ: I’m nervous as well as I have Ellington all over the place and have to start him. The niners have not been the same on defense so it’s possible he breaks one, especially on some passes. I think theres a chance, mayne. I’m starting him over Asiata and I;m sticking to it. Tough call but Its Ellington for me

      • Chris says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I have the same conundrum and I’ve decided to use Khiry over Ellington. I could have also went with hunter, Reuben randle, or Woodhead, but I think I made the right choice. Tough benching my 2nd round pick, but I’m 0-2 and need to take a chance.

    Montee Ball is disappointing right now because Manning is all about pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass. He’s got regular season records to break ASAP, everyone knows this!

    Seriously though, Ball needs at least 15-20 touches to get his game going, if 5-8 of those touches need to be quick dump off passes so be it. I know it’s easy to toss it up to either Thomas in the red zone, but at the goal line they need to establish some type of run game as a threat.

    I just traded for Ball so I’ll be watching him even more closely, although I am not sure I’ll play him against the Seahawks this week.

        @Tehol Beddict: Yea its tough this can go so many ways Cooks can explode but so can Alshon and Keenan for me and Julio’s a stud I want to do it for the Julio and Demaryius combo but I guess I should really hold.

        Hopefully Keenan doesn’t make me regret this as I know Sky’s (and some other fantasy analysts) is very low on him .

      @Allan: I’m fine with it. Robinson should beast with Ingram out but asiata should be starter all year so there’s that. Fine with it tho

    Was offered ridley for my decker.

    12 team ppr league.

    Thinking of turning it down. Ridley seems always
    One fumble from finding the bench

    What do you think?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @scorequick: it’s tough call. Decker dinged up but is their number one wideout. Who are ur other receivers? I would need to know that to make decision

      • scorequick says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict:

        julio jones, michael floyd, emannuel sanders, steve smith, kenny stills.

        not sure how many tagets floyd will see if palmer is not in there.
        love sanders but may lose tagets to welker soon, no
        not sure what to make of smith.
        not sure how much run stills will get.

        rb are ellington, martin, jennings, and mcfadden.
        3 wr spots, 2 rb spots, w/r/t spot.

        thanks in advance for any response.

    Your comment re: Peterson was the best I’ve read so far. So true and so sad at the same time.

    Planning on starting:
    RB1 Murray
    RB2 Stacy
    WR1 Brown
    WR 2 Wright
    Flx Robinson, K
    Sub options are TY, Sanu, CJ2K or D. Brown for any potential spot above.
    Also, keep Packers as DST or stream the best available?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Citizen5: thank you. Yea Peterson just doesn’t get it. Yep squad looks good tho I’d consider Hilton or Sanu over Wright for sure. Not feeling packers defense whatsoever. Let me know who’s available and we will decide

          @Citizen5: Oh wow, yea. I picked up ravens in a couple leagues this week tho its not ultimate ideal matchup but could be good one. i really like the saints this week. I know they’ve been torched but i have feeling the dominate this week. turnover machine matt cassell could give you 2 pick sixes. its that real. those are my two options this week

      @the pillar & the stones: interesting as all these guys are in same boat.

      For this week alone I think Khiry has best chance of blowup game. Lamar miller 2, asiata 3 and brown 4. Im not a huge brown guy, obviously, but he will produce while matthews out. You just never know with him. I know the other 3 will get fed the rock

    trade toby “i suck’ gerhart for ben tate?

    what about colston/delanie for greg olsen and sjax

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @whhhhhat: thats a tough call, especially with West and Crowell looking nice for Cleveland. Im wondering if when Tate returns, West will have earned more touches. I still like Tate better overall but should we give Tobias one more week? If not Im fine with it ahhah

      I love the 2nd trade. pull that ASAP.

      • whhhhhat says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: i also own J. Cameron at TE. I have a feeling this is an injury plagued year for him. I love Cam Newtons 8+ targets a week for olsen. I for one think Cam is actually underrated as a passer, and will feed both olsen and kelvin benjamin all year.

        that being said. fine to throw in J. cameron instead of D. walker in the above trade?

        (j cameron/ colston for olsen/ sjax)

          @whhhhhat: whoa now. too early for me to dump cameron but if you have one of those special feelings go ahead and do so. I’d be concerned tho and probably too scared to do it myself

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: oh yes. Most definitely. He about 3 weeks away but your not gonna play adams anyway. I’ve begun picking him up. We shall see how valuable he with the emphasis on running game but still more value than adams I think

    Jeremy Hill
    Steven Jackson

      @thesportsguy: Bill Simmons? Here on my blog? you’re an inspiration. I like Torrey and Randle. They should both have big games. This could be the week steven jackson gets off so I’m gonna say him altho HIll may be safer pick and that seems strange to say

        (link)

        Funny, I’ve used that monikor for about 10 years and now I see he uses it…maybe he should pay me copyright or infringement fees…

        Thanks for the two WR, still need a flex from the remaining guys which includes the other two WR’s (Floyd and Wheaton)…you still like SJax more than them?

    (link)

    So now my new team is, in a 12 team 3 receiver PPR…. I just traded Brees, Marshall n Woodhead for DeMarco Murray and Antonio Brown. I needed running bad and I streamed Tannehill. I’m 0-2 and without that trade I would’ve been doomed. Anyway…
    Tannehill
    Antonio Brown
    Maclin
    Cruz
    DeMarco Murray
    Bush
    Fred Jackson
    Forsett
    Donnell
    Mathews
    McFadden
    Nicks
    Miles Austin
    Now this guy grabbed Cousins and he already has Peyton and Cam. I figue he can’t keep all 3 cause he has no backups. should I wait for him to maybe drop or do you see a trade I can afford to give him?? He offered me Cam or Cousins for Fred Jackson but I don’t think I can afford that. What would you do??

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Take Cam for Fred Jackson ASAP. We can’t have you playing with Tannehill. We just can’t man. Let’s get this done and move on from there. ALways good to here from you, buddy!

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        he said he’ll also do Forsett n McFadden for Cam or Cousins.. 1 – Do you like that better then giving up Jackson? 2- Do you like Cam or Cousins long term??

        • Frank White says:
          (link)

          Now this idiot keeps changing his mind.. He said either Cam for Jackson or Forsett n McFadden for Cousins.. I’d hate to lose Fred cause I have no Flex plus buy weeks.. Sorry but What should I do now??

    Sup Tehol.. I know Jay’s rankings speak for themselves but do you think I should actually drop Dawson for Matt Bryant?? 2 – Rudolph has been shitty and I know he’s ranked higher the Donnell but you really think I should try Rudolph again??

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: You have to keep plugging with Rudolph I would say. Over Donnell, yes. At least for a couple more weeks.

      Im not going to break down Jay’s kicker rankings for the week but Bryant should be in for a really nice day in the dome in atlanta against a team they’re going to beat down. so yes, feel free to drop Dawson for him.

  38. Hans says:
    (link)

    Tehol, I got Jays opinion but wanted yours too, Hear me out, then let me know if I’m crazy…14 team league, can only have four rb spots. Currently have Mathews, Brown, Ivory, Woodhead, Hill, Vereen. Need to drop two by Sunday if I cant trade.

    Crazy to consider dropping Mathews? Thinking..he is out most likely 5 weeks, which means that he will be back week 8. He has a bye week 10, which means if Brown plays well, he can very well be held out til week 11. Best case scenario, he gets me 2 weeks of play out of the next 8 weeks, worst case, he doesnt play for 8 weeks. Am I crazy in being frustrated and wanting someone else to deal with this mess? If so, what two should I drop from my six? BTW, sorry for the book…

      @Hans: Hans, you could write a 5000 word essay and I’d still read the entire thing. thats how special you are to me. Wow, if you have a limit at running back then no, you’re not crazy. you can’t drop the other guys tho if I was going to drop another one it would be Brown or wood head. Cant u package a trade of some sort?

  39. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Tehol, I just got a notification and it appears Doug Martin will not play. If that is definitely the case, I need to figure out my RB/flex spots

    I’m starting Murray for sure but at RB2 & Flex my options are K. Davis, R. Jennings & Rainey..what do you think? I’m leaning Rainey since Martin is out & Atlanta sucks against the run, but then again, I’ll have to bench R. Jennings or K. Davis…ahhh tough decision!

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: On a side-note, Rainey last year started against the Falcons in week 11 & scored 3 TDs with 167 total yards…yikes! Now I’m leaning Murray/Rainey & K. Davis, benching R. Jennings…or do I go with R. Jennings over K. Davis?!

      • LT Murray IV

        Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @Nick: id go davis over jennings for upside potential which is large. he can break em

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: It is an extremely tough decision but it’s one thats hard to go wrong either way. If Martin is out, Rainey is very good play tho i think atlanta may dominate tonight. Davis has a solid matchup as well but if Martin is out, and based on what we’ve seen from rainey thus far, and as you pointed out his success last year against atlanta, go Rainey

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: So looks like Charles is practicing….that would make my decision easier, sit Davis, start R. Jennings & Rainey, right?
