Greetings! What a time to be alive! We’ve all been allowed to witness the glorious gift of the Elder Gods, Tyrod Taylor, make gizzards out of three opposing secondaries. This young legend was COMPLETELY left out of a certain ESPN analyst’s weekly quarterback rankings last week, and I for one believe he deserves to be fired for committing such a despicable act of disgracefulness. After Blake Bortles treated their secondary like a porta-potty the previous week, any respectable man would have to assume Tygod would drop a double-dose of feces on those peasants. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! What are people not seeing?! This stallion has every skill-set imaginable and should only improve from here on out. I’m a TAD concerned with Taylor not having Watkins and McCoy in the arsenal this week against the Giants, but I believe he’ll make up for that just by taking off and running a lot more. By the way, the Giants are DEAD LAST in the NFL in pass yards given up. Suck that in for a second. Oooohweeee, the Rodfather is a top-5 option this week at QB and a must-own in all formats. If you wanna keep hating, I’ll grant you a front row seat into my induction into the “writers wing” of the NFL Hall of Fame (as long as Jay continues editing my work).

I am Tehol Beddict and this is, Disgrace/Delight! Take heed!


Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros

My dear friend, Justin Mason, (a fantasy podcast host) had the balls to tell me that Tygod would fall off once defenses figured him out and that they were running “high percentage plays”. Ummmm, Ma$e, by high percentage plays do you mean: diming it all over the damned field, throwing one of the best deep balls I’ve ever witnessed, and taking off and running for big yards when a play breaks down? If that’s what you meant, then yeah, you’re totally correct bruh. Say one thing or Justin Mason, he’s an intellectual. Super sweet tats though. The audacity that some of these Tyrod haters have is vomit inducing and downright pathetic. Shame and emotional distress will be thrust down upon the deniers by the Elder Gods. FEEL THEIR WRATH!  It has been written so just sit back and allow Tyrod and I to show us a whole new world.

Is Tyrod the next Michael Vick, only with superior ball security?

Players that will Delight

Blake Bortles – That Indy secondary is leakier than my urinary incontinent grandfather, and when you also figure that EVERY single game the Colts are involved in is a shootout, this should be no different. With Vontae Davis on Robinson, I fully expect Hurns to get one to two tubs this week but I’ll speak on that in Saturday’s column. Or write on it. Whatever. I’d much rather start a Bortles than, say, a Stafford or possibly even Eli Manning this week. Pootie tang with the arm game, show some respect.

Karlos Williams  Errone and dey Momma gon’ be starting this raging bull in DFS this week as LeSean McCoy is likely sitting, but I believe it’s still worth pounding into your brain with a sledgehammer. The Giants are somehow ranked second overall in run defense, giving up only 3.4 ypa, but be my guest if you continue to insist on doubting MY Buffalo Bills. You’ll wake up on Monday feeling like a city bus drove through your rectum.

Melvin Gordon – If not this week, then when? Cleveland is DEAD LAST in run defense and Latavius tha God just went hog wild on that ass so if Gordo is unable to produce 80-plus yards and a score against these peons, it’s almost a guarantee he won’t be in my delight section for the rest of the season. That was an insanely long sentence but if anything it just makes what I said more true… or nah?

Amari Cooper  After abusing Jimmy Smith and then Joe Haden, I’d have to be an absolute nut job to deny that Cooper is now a top-10 option at wideout each and every week from here on out. When factoring in that the Bears secondary has more penetrable holes than a Kardashian, Cooper could be a top-5 play in Week 4. Did I use that joke last week? Still funny…

Percy Harvin Harvin looks great thus far and Tygod BARELY missed him on what would have been a 50-plus-yard TD in Week 3, which by the way would have caused me to simultaneously orgasm in my man thong, so if Watkins sits, expect an 100-yard day with a high probability of some runs mixed in.

Charles Clay Again, the Giants have given up more passing yards than anyone and if Watkins sits, those yards have to go somewhere. Clay has been living up to expectations thus far and I expect him to be a top five play this week. Basically, anything Tyrod touches turns to gold. He’s that legendary.

Arizona Cardinals – Nick Fails comes to town and if he was unable to even dent that dumpster fire of a Steelers secondary, I would fully expect the Cardinals playmakers to make his mediocre talents fully apparent.

 

Players that will Disgrace

Teddy Bridgewater  How’s life on the Teddy train? Still riding for him or nah? This is a running team, folks, and the Broncos secondary is giving up an mind blowing 176 yards a game. Hopefully you put his ass on the waiver wire for Tyrod weeks ago. If not, Shame. Shame. Shame.

Matthew Stafford  The Lions offense has been abysmal thus far and traveling to Seattle is not the greatest place to get it humming. Expect multiple turnovers and an 0-4 start for the Lions. Stafford’s Lions are 3-31 against teams that finish with a winning record. They are 0-17 against those teams on the road. Yeah, WOW! It’s not going to happen this week. You’ve got to be realistic about these things.

Lamar Miller  I tire of bashing of this young man but it simply must be done. I was hammered for not having Miller ranked higher on my preseason list and now I hammer my naysayers in the chest with the mighty hammer of Thor. HIGHLY unlikely he gets it going against the Jets in jolly old England.

Ameer Abdullah – Best believe the Seahawks will be attempting to strip this fumbling machine on each and every touch, as he’s known to give it up easier than Lindsay Lohan on a Friday night in rehab. Expect nothing.

Charles Johnson Remember how everyone was super high on Johnson before the season? Well, just like my thong modeling days, those are long gone. Cut bait.

Rishard Matthews  I’ve always been a Matthews fan but unfortunately he’s going against an incredible Jets secondary, so his string of miraculous games will no doubt come to a screeching halt. He’ll be back though.

Martellus Bennett IF Clausen is at quarterback in Week 4, EVEN against a pathetic Raiders secondary, I’m looking at other options.

Thank you for joining me for another edition of Disgrace/Delight. As per usual your questions and comments will be responded to in the section below. I very much look forward to servicing you……

    Here’s every pass last week by Tyrod Taylor, for those who are interested… (Does have audio.)

    • Clint says:
      (link)

      @Jay:
      Really starting to feel like this Tyrod Taylor thing is Kappy circa 2012-2013. Greg Roman has a history of making these mobile QB’s look good despite realistically-limited skills. Think I’ll grab him for the short term but the Bills better draft a PTP’er asap before the league figures him out like they did Kappy.

        @Clint: I agree, the coaching for him has been superb.

      • Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @Clint: as i said in my video and before the season. LOOK AT THE WEAPONS. when watkins and Mccoy are healthy they are absolutely loaded with playmakers. just get thm the ball and let them make plays. plus he throws a great deep ball. much smoother than Kaepernick. better throwing motion.

    ,5 PPR League. 12 team

    Would you drop J.Bell (I have Gore, Lacy, and Matt Jones) for Marvin Jones or Davante Parker (I have Cobb, A. Brown, j. brown, allen robinson and wallace)?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Fleece: ur pretty stacked at wideout so it’s not necessary but tho I think Bell picks it up a bit at some point he looks like dead weight. I’d consider Jones

  3. Jake says:
    (link)

    You nailed it with the Rawls pick last week congrats. I am wondering how you feel about him as a waiver addition ROS it’s starting to look like we could be seeing the Marshawn Lynch that people thought we were going to see last couple years the age factor could be catching up. Since you are the Seattle guru please share your thoughts.

    Thanks

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Jake: I added him this week due to the uncertainty of Lynch in the short term so even a speculative add for this week would be good if u have a bum to drop. Lynch should be ok but it’s possible he misses a few

  4. Tony C says:
    (link)

    Great article! Thanks! I’m in a 2 QB starting lineup league where bonus points are rewarded for long TDs. Also when we draft Ben Roethliesberger, for example, we automatically get all Pittsburgh QBs , so in effect I own the Pittsburgh Team QB. Having said that my 3 Team QBs are Pittsburgh, San Diego and Tennessee. Would you drop any of these Team QBs today for the Buffalo Team QB, specifically Tyrod Taylor and which Team QB would you drop if so?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Tony C: interesting league rules. I play in the long td bonus leage as well. Cool little bonus for sure.wow that’s really tough call but I’d rather have Tyrod than Rivers. Ur gonna want big Ben when he comes back and Vick could surprise and Mariota is killing. I’m good with dropping chargers for Bills

  5. Shookonespart2 says:
    (link)

    Hey great job with your posts recently. I’m 0-3 and ready to shake things up: was thinking of the following in a keeper league:

    1)trade shady McCoy and aj green for Justin Forsett, Brandon Marshall, James jones

    2) same deal as 1 but put devante freeman or Lamar miller in for Forsett. Basically I want to sell on shady since Karlos Williams is eating in that backfield and I was stupid and didn’t cuff..

    3) Amari cooper and jimmy graham for James jones, Justin Forsett, Martellus bennet

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Shookonespart2: ain’t no such thing has half way crooks. Deal 1) absolutely NOT. don’t do it, big dog. The 3rd trade is also bad if you’re one giving up jimmy and cooper. Ur stacked. Just hold, playa

  6. Letsgoletsgo says:
    (link)

    Would you drop pierre garcon for a back rb or defense to hold for week 4 (grab a good matchup a week ahead of time), Im deep at wr and have martavis coming back next week. I see no way for this guy to get into my lineup unless rg3 comes back and goes crazy..

    I
    My other option is to try and trade garcon for the likes of dmc, spiller, etc but doubt anyone bites.

    Thanks

    • Letsgoletsgo says:
      (link)

      @Letsgoletsgo: backup rb*

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Letsgoletsgo: I mean depends on what backup you talking about. I’d drop him for a guy like Rawls otherwise better holding and seeing if he goes off this week then trade. Not highly likely but still. If there’s a defense u like for week 4 I’m ok with that

  7. Nick says:

    Morning Tehol! After gutting out a 122-109 victory this past weekend I’m not at 2-1 in my 10-teamer…I ended up gutting my bench this week in FAAB & am left with the following;

    QB-P Manning
    RB-AP/J Randle
    WR-Ty/Amari/Garcon
    Flex-DeMarco Murray
    TE-M Bennett
    K-Tucker
    D-STL
    Bench-J Thomas, R White, T Mason, M Jones, J Bell, T Taylor

    I know you have to be thrilled with another Taylor pickup! I plan to insert him week 7 vs. Jax when Manning has a bye…my question is, do you stick with DeMarco this week (I know your rather low on him) or insert Marvin Jones at flex? I just do not think I can give up on my 2nd round pick…

    Also, do you like DeVante Parker, Hankerson (move on from Roddy yet in 10-team?), Duke Johnson Jr, Ginn Jr, Boldin or Vereen over anybody on my bench? Thanks!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: great work, my goodman!!! In Tyrod we trust. Depending on health, yes I’d go DeMarco BUT chiefs have given up a ton of tds to Wrs so jones intriguing . I’d drop Roddy for Hankerson immediately. Would for parker also

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Thanks Boss! Big difference in future output for Parker v. Hankerson? I’m leaning Hank since I’m dropping Roddy…

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Nick: yep that makes sense. I’m wit it

  8. Jimmclownsen says:
    (link)

    jimmynclausen or Kirk cousins? Genuinely interested in who you think is better

    That said. Drop Pierre garcon as a Martellus bennet owner to pick up charles clay and get in on the tyrod party?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Jimmclownsen: cousins is far and away the superior player here. Not even close. Clausen has no business starting nfl games. Sad to watch. Cousins is serviceable and nice arm. I’m with Clay this week. Top 5 option.

  9. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Dynasty, standard scoring, it’s time to move on from Roddy White. We start 2 WR and a Flex (usually a RB), and I have Megatron and K. Allen locked into my starting slots at least until DET’s week 9 bye. On my bench I have Dez (maybe he’s back by then?), DGB (maybe he’s a hog by then?) and Kevin White (maybe next year?). Given my mix of present/future talent and healthy/injured WR, what would you target with Roddy’s roster spot?

    a) a veteran who may start for me in a good matchup or if another of my guys goes down (Marvin Jones, Harvin, R. Matthews, Cruz, Boldin, Hankerson);
    b) another young upside project (Perriman, Lockett, Charles Johnson, Dorsett); or
    c) a RB flier (Rawls, A. Andrews, Taliaferro, Dunbar, K. Davis)?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: oh wow. Yea I’d dump his ass for Harvin or Marvin ASAP. I’m a sucker for young guys but I think I’d go Harvin over the rookies

  10. Kendrick Llama says:
    (link)

    My man tehol.. Do you think Agholor or Hankerson is a better stash? Although Agholor hasn’t done much, he had a tough matchup last wee and was on the field on every throwing down.

    Hankerson on the other hand should start to see a rise in targets once teams double Julio

    Could also snag John Brown, but not as high on his future potential at this time.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Kendrick Llama: yo yo. I think I’d grab John brown. I’m not as high on him as others but he’s going to erupt at some point. I’d probably hold on Agholor as he just needs targets really strange but no prob if u wanna cut bait for hankerson

  11. Nick says:
    (link)

    *hey Buddy,

    1) pick up Hurns, Hankerson? to replace Agholor @WR3?
    for Wheaton, DVParker?
    2) Start Karlos over DougMART?
    3) Start Luck over Taylor?
    4) Davante Adams just been dropped, i have GB WRs Cobb and Ty Mont…

    Nick

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: 1) I like hurns more this week. And possibly beyond but if we see another Roddy disappearing act I may change my tune

  12. Nick says:
    (link)

    Also, do I get ‘cute’ & start Taylor this week against the Giants or stick with my 3rd round pick in Peyton Manning (up against the Vikings)

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I have to decide same thing with Matt Ryan or Tygod. Usually just stick to the big dog like manning.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: althoooo I do have Tyrod outscoring him this week

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Hmm, interesting…still think I gotta go Peyton since he was my 3rd rounder

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Nick: mos def. mos def.

  13. Clamz says:
    (link)

    Half PPR League, Stewart (RB) vs Tampa or Yeldon (RB) vs Indy for my flex spot this week?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Clamz: tough call. Stewart looks so bad but Yeldon hasn’t done shizzzz. I think I’m gonna give Stewart one more shot to team that just allowed Alfred Blue to crush their manhood

  14. Pacochu says:
    (link)

    I lost out on my Carr waiver (first place problems) and need a Brady replacement in my 12 team league. At least I was able to get Clay as a Gronnk sub. Anyhoo, my QB options are looking ugly.

    Bortles, Fitzmagic, Crab Legs, Mallet and Foles and Vick. I was leaning towards The Magic Man, but your blurb on Bortles has me thinking. Scoring is slightly different than standard with 5 pt passing TDs and yardage bonuses at 250, 300 and 350 yards.

    Do I gamble on Bortles or go with the higher ranked Fitzy?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pacochu: I’m going with Bortles here. I usually tinker with rankings during week. Bortles needs to be above fitz this week.

      • Pacochu says:

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Scott: do u have anyone else u can drop? I think Vick can hit Martavis. I’m intrigued. U HAVE to have someone else u can drop right????

        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: um, Michael Floyd or DGB. if I drop Mikey it will leave me with no W/T this week. also Sam Bradford, coz I got Tyrod. 16 team league.

    Hey Tehol

    My team has looked pretty overall if not for mediocre at best wr play. Which RB do you suggest trying to trade and are there any wr you think are good buys right now? Try to see if anyone wants Anderson or see see if he bounced back?. Sell Randle or goree after big day or sell forte before bears collapse? Always appreciate your input!

    QB M Ryan
    RB Forte
    RB Gore
    Wr A Robinson

    Bench. K Williams, cj Anderson, J randle, a abdullah
    Moncrief, a johnson, g, tate

    10 team no ppr

    Also drop anyone for R Matthews or P Harvin?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Wacha wacha: I’d consider trading Randle or Abdullah depending on the return. Is it almost chop time for Andre? This is crazy ughhh. Hopefully he figures it out. I wanna see Anderson bounce back as his trade value to low right now. Feel free to cut teddy two step

    Is Freeman a sell high or cementing himself as a quality back.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: tough to say as he’s never had great success before running the rock but always a nice receiever. I’ve maintained that he’s solid ppr even with coleman. If he looks ANYTHING like that this week the starting job will be his for good

    hey tehol! standard scoring league, couple questions for you.

    – start cam @ tb, carr @ chi or tyrod vs giants? and

    – how do you rank cj spiller, sproles, gurley, duke johnson, david johnson and hillman for this week and also for rest of season?

    thanks!

    jordan cameron or maxx williams for this week?

  29. Connor says:
    (link)

    How high would you be if Foster is confirmed to play this week? Also, do you see Woodhead losing a lot of value as the season progresses? I’m nervous because Gordon has been looking better each week. Thanks man!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Connor: maaaan, I think Texans won’t activate Foster until he’s ready to rock almost full load so if he plays I’m starting him.

      If Gordon keeps improving then yes Woodhead will lose some time but he’ll still catch a lot of balls. He’s never meant to be a guy who gets a ton of carries

  30. IV says:
    (link)

    Elder God Blessed Tehol!
    Please provide me with your guidance as it could only help me to improve this team.

    16 Team .5 PPR
    QB: Bradford
    RB: Forte
    WR: Fitz
    TE: Ebron
    WR/RB/TE: Ivory
    WR/TE: Cooks
    BN: Woodhead, Moncrief, Bortles, T Williams
    K: Gould
    D/ST: Panthers

    Would you trade Moncrief for Reed? Reed seems to be a favorite of Cousins and I know I can flip Ebron to another owner who needs a TE.

    Could you also provide your thoughts on Julius Thomas and Martavis Bryant once they are back?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @IV: TIS I!!! Beddict, voice of the Elders! very tough call. if you already have Ebron that may not be necessary as Moncrief looks quite valuable as of late and we must take into account the injury history of Reed. id probably hold there especially if you can swoop thomas. who I’m intrigued with and i LOVE martavis. dude is an absolute savage. should be ok with Vick and great with big ben.

    So J Thomas is going to play this week! I have M Bennett, do you take the risk & start J Thomas over Bennett considering Cutler is out?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’m fine either way. i meeeeean, the Raiders secondary is in shambles so even a bum like Clausen should be able to feed him but Thomas gets the inept colts. def upside for a TD or two. i might use caution and try Bennett since we dont know how much thomas will play. but that will hurt if he scores a couple

    Howdy man

    Half ppr league

    I added Marvin jones, hankerson & Antonio Andrews this AM. But should I have held onto Allen hurns? Dropped hurns for hankerson. Dropped Doug Baldwin for jones & dropped richard Rodgers for Andrews. I dropped Rodgers because I also have Owen Daniels & I have gates returning next week.

    On the flip I tried to claim Charles Clay but someone who was ahead of me on the waiver got him.

    Hold onto Daniels & start him this week (Broncos face vikes D)

    Or drop for any of these ; lol bear with me

    Ladarius green (vs Browns D)

    Larry Donnell (@ buffalo)

    Ben Watson (vs Cowboys)

    Josh hill (vs Cowboys)

    Gary barnidge (at San Diego)

    Or put a claim in for Richard Rodgers

    Rodgers is at San Francisco.

    Who could be a sneaky pick up I know last week was Gary barnidge

    When is it time to drop Andre Johnson? If he does nothing this week jags?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Oscar the grouch: I think id go Ladarius if he’s playing but Daniels should be ok. i think Ladarius has the most upside by far when he’s out there. its ok that you dropped Hurns as I like adds you made. no big deal, mayneeeeeee

  33. Roll of SAGNOF, Hear my Cry says:

    sup, Tehol.

    Who to drop for Charles Clay:

    Charles Johnson
    Devante Parker
    David Johnson
    Matt Stafford

    and also,

    would you rather own Hillman or Rawls?

    of course I could always drop Johnson and Johnson for Clay and Rawls

    thanks dude!

    • IV says:
      (link)

      @Roll of SAGNOF, Hear my Cry: I feel like Charles Johnson is the safe drop here as he is hurt and the passing attack is second to their run game. If Stafford is a bench QB he is the second drop as that team is a mess right now.
      Parker and David Johnson still have some upside so they should be held on to assuming you don’t need to start either of them right now.

      • Roll of SAGNOF, Hear my Cry says:
        (link)

        @IV:

        Yeah. I’ve got Mariota and just grabbed Vick.

        did you see the Golden Tate quotes from yesterday?? he says each week members of the opposing defense have told him to his face that they knew what play was coming. that has got to be frustrating. seems like Lombardi needs to go. Yes, I’m a Lions fan. Pity me.

      • Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @IV: IV, my sidekick is pretty on point here altho i dont see how David Johnson becomes startable unless another injury. he had a fluke week 2 weeks ago then nothing

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Roll of SAGNOF, Hear my Cry: whatuuuuup, blood!? id like to see whole roster but if johnson and johnson are at bottom of depth chart say good riddens. i mean you cant count on more than 10 snaps a game from David johnson and thats without ellington around so he’d be the first to go. Lynch situation is interesting. its a monday night game so unless you a lynch owner kind of screwed if you wait till monday unless its a multi week thing for Lynch.

      Together, there’s nothing we cant accomplish

  34. dom says:
    (link)

    wow guess I can’t feel bad about struggling to pick 2 between L Fitzgerald, B Marshall, and Steve Smith when the ECR for them is 10, 11, 12 this week. Razzball Brandon was leaning Smith over Marshall and looks like you’re vice versa. Decker’s return this week eats into Marshall’s targets?

    • dom says:
      (link)

      @dom: Also, I have Luck and no other QB’s in my 8 team PPR league. Thinking about picking up Dalton as insurance as Luck missed practice today with a sore shoulder. Should I drop Matt Jones or Doug Martin for him, or hold? Dalton plays HOU week 10 Luck’s bye week

        @dom: but i guess I also hate London games LMAO. so theres that

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @dom: thats true. with Decker playing def wont be as much force feeding to Marshall so maybe i bump Smith up a tad since he, AGAIN, seems to be only target for Ravens. would would think opposing defenses would catch on and double his old ass. that was all i was worried about there. plus i hate thursday games

    Hurns Ginn Maxx for two spots this week…….

    Thanks

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @WillisReid: ooooooh, lets just go Ginn and Hurns, big Willy! Ginn is getting consistent targets and weak secondary and Hurns should be in fairly high scoring affair. i like Maxx, I really do, but its TNF and it seems too risky for my taste

  37. William says:
    (link)

    Tehol! How are you Chief? I had a rough week 3. I started M. Jones over Ingram…… Then my opponent had Cam, Julio, Olsen and Gore….. On to week 4 though. I dropped some dead weight from my bench. Dropped Stafford, Agholor, Matt Jones and Golden Tate. I picked up Flacco, Rishard Matthews, Ryan Mathews, and Reuben Randle. My question is who should I start this week? I appreciate it.

    QB-Rodgers
    RB1-Ingram
    RB2-Lacy
    WR1- J. Matthews
    WR2- A. Cooper
    TE- Eifert
    F- Rishard Matthews
    D- AZ

    Bench: D. Lewis, Spiller, Gurley, Flacco, Ryan Matthews, R. Randle

    William

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @William: Ughhhhhhhhh, sorry to hear that my friend! time for a bounce back! The way you have it set up is perfect tho I’m thinking Matthews struggles against a GREAT jets secondary. I may go Randle there. in fact I know i would. u got this

  38. jojo says:

    Woodhead or Matt Jones ROS?

    thanks!!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @jojo: WOW, tough call. i like Gordon’s carries to continue to rise but if wood head continues to get the goal line carries i suppose it dont matter so much. also if san diego’s defense keeps getting shredded maybe wood head will be in even more. if its PPR its Woodhead no question. Jones has more upside in standard but at this point wood head seems like safer option

    In a 1.5pt/ppr league, an owner dropped Gore. Should I move to get him even though my most droppable is Lamar Miller? Feels like a wash if Miller bounces back to me.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Clint: right thats kind of a wash tho Gore looks more valuable at this point in my opinion. Not sure what they’re doing with Miller. id much rather have Gore at this point. so you really have no bums u can drop?

      • Clint says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict:
        Not really unless you see something I don’t. It’s an 8 team keeper league w/2 flex spots so between trades I’ve made, the 5 I kept, and my draftees, I’m looking pretty good. Here’s who I have & the starting spots we have to fill for each:

        QB (1): A-Rod, Ryan, T-Rod
        RB (1): Le’Veon, Foster, Miller
        WR (2): Julio, Calvin, Cobb, Alshon
        TE (R/W/T or QB/R/W/T): Gronk, Olsen
        K: McManus
        DL: Chandler
        LB: Mosley
        DB: Reshad Jones
        D/ST: Denver

        Passing TD’s are worth 5pts each, 6pts/TD everywhere else, 40yds/pt passing, 20yds/pt everywhere else w/the 1.5pt/ppr. I looked at last year’s scoring & despite the 2nd QB option in the flex, the top 25 were dominated by WR’s & the top 2 TE’s so I went heavy there & think I only really need Miller or Gore as a backup to Bell/Foster.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Andrew: well, I’m facing the same conundrum as I have both. I’m leaning Ryan if Watkins sits out. having him and McCoy, two great receiving options out could be a problem for overall stats. have to depend on Woods and Hogan ughhhh. hoping he he runs for more than usual to make up for it. if watkins sits i will prob move him down a few spots

      (link)

      @GroovyGreg: ughhhhh, that’s so tough!!! Miller and Forsett have been straight trash. i dont have a ton of faith in Randle but at least he’s produced to some extent. maaaan, I’m really struggling with this one. I’m almost at that point with forsett but Gray could creep on Miller. But Miller has more upside. I may chop Forsett with a gun to my head. do you have to make the move right now?

    hey man. i only have 1 TE jordan cameron. but hes banged up and has a bye week next week. the TE on waiver wire are: ebron, fleener, jared cook, maxx williams.

    Nice write up, 2 team qb league .75ppr (3wr) I lost romo and brees. Ouch I have flacco and Vick, but everyone wants some of my wr depth. I have julio, cooper, Marshall, cooks, m. Jones and v. Jax but my rbs are hill, gore, woodhead, yeldon and Abdullah. What return should I be looking for marshall or cooper, a guy has lynch and newton but not sure how much of an actual upgrade either player would give me

    • chisoxx22 says:

      Would ya do Palmer for amari? 2 qb league .75 ppr

      • Tehol Beddict says:
        (link)

        @chisoxx22: you giving up Amari? nah. no can do altho I suppose you is a little beat up there. can we trade a Cooks for say a Tyrod or something a little less valuable?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @chisoxx22: thanks, bruh bruh. those receiver tho!!! cooper looks like a legend as of now and it would take a hog for me to trade him. id def trade marshall for Lynch tho as the upside could really solidify the running back spot. altho i think Hill will turn it around and Gore should be fine and Yeldon should eventually DO SOMETHING positive. brees should be back so that fixes one problem. newton could actually give you a give boost. i suppose cooks wouldnt get it done. but id consider marshall

  49. STL says:
    (link)

    I know it’s a good problem to have, but I have no idea who to slot in at FLEX and RB2 this week. PPR league

    My options:

    Alshon Jeffrey (if healthy), Arian Foster (if healthy), Karlos Williams (assuming Shady sits), Jonathan Stewart, Danny Woodhead, Victor Cruz (health again)

    A ton of question marks when it comes to health, but I am leaning towards Karlos Williams and Alshon – health permitting.

    What two would you choose?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @STL: shady is almost 100 percent sitting. so I’m going Karlos over the others other than possibly Foster but thats a game time call and a tough one to judge. will they give him 15 carries? i might just play it safe and go Karlos. and probably Foster over the rest tho. cruz is out most likely. id consider Jefferey against horrid secondary but clausen so bad. still leaning Jeffery over foster but i could change my mind. need to see what they saying about injuries next few days

  50. Dommattingly says:
    (link)

    QB: Flacco, and an IR Big Ben
    RBs: Lynch, Foster, Forsett, Taliaferro, Blount, Dion Lewis, and Dunbar
    WRs: Aj Green, Matthews, JBrown, DJax, Boldin, and Stevie Johnson

    Rivers is on the wire, but has a bad matchup this weekend vs CLE.
    I want to try and grab him, but would like to keep Flacco for this weeks matchup vs PIT.

    should I drop Boldin, Stevie, Taliaferro, Dunbar (who’s my only healthy RB with a solid mathcup this week) or Flacco?

    Sorry for the complicated question…Thanks or the help!!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Dommattingly: i wouldnt call it a “bad” matchup. haden could miss game and they just got ass torched by David Freaking Carr. i suppose they could end up just running a bunch. u can drop Taliaferro for him no problemo. is it ppr? if not will be tough to depend on 100 yards receiving from Dunbar every week.

      not complicated whatsoever. you’re extremely eloquent and a total gentleman. Salute

    So why the heck not.. he was available to I picked up Vick.

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: i like ur style, W.R.! sounds like something I would do. I’m starting Vick over Stafford without a doubt and Kaepernick also. i have Kaepernick ranked higher as of now but i may change that tomorrow. He looked so awful and packers d is nothing like days of old

    Question for the great Tehol,

    I’m 0-3 probably because I benched the chosen one Tyrod in a TWO Qb league for Stafford and Brady in the first two weeks, I got a trade offer of Alshon Jeffery for Cooks and Tyrod (it’s also a PPR). I obviously don’t want to give up Tyrod but would should I do it if I trade Stafford and Cooks and get back Alshon and like Bortles or will Cooks start to break out into his preseason hype soon?

    My current QB’s are Brady, Tygod, Stafford, Vick and current WR’s are Calvin, Cooks, Amari Cooper, Garcon.

    Thanks!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Dave: DAVE THA GOD!!!!!! u started Stafford over Tyrod? Dave Dave Dave. Cooks still may turn it around as he had solid week with McCown so it may not be as great a trade as it sound but Bortles is better option than people give him credit for and Jeffery could be great if Cutler comes back. I’m fine with that move, Davey boy

      @Zandy: Z- Baggins!!! what up!? like all 3 of those dudes for Evans???? seems like a lot altho i suppose it wont be if Stewart never freaking gets it going. tough call because Im a big robinson fan. Evans is special tho. would give you dynamic 3 wideout but rb would be pretty thin. you have a bunch of ppr guys but this is standard. i suppose Lewis should be enough if you want to go through with trade. on value stand point i think u may lose that one tho. but i make those moves from time to time

      tough call on jefferey. i think i like jefferey better with cutler. they are the kings of garbage time tho he’s banged up.

    Do you like Maxx Williams tonight over L. Green at TE this week? Flacco historically seems to target the TE against PIT… He uses them a lot…it would be a 1 week sub any how for Delanie.
