Going into Week 2, one could pick from a plethora of story lines to choose from. As the one who dictates such things for your consumption, and seeing as how the “Petyon Manning’s demise” story line was delayed this past Thursday night, I bring to you, dear readers, this fascinating snippet…

Granted this probably is due to the fact that in the past, opening divisional games were more common, but I still think it’s impressive for an entire division to go 4-0 in a week. Even more impressive when you consider that it’s a division that includes both the Bills and the Jets. (Just a fun note, the AFC West could have also achieved this feat, if not for a Raiders loss in Week 1. Because Raiders.) Unfortunately, this honeymoon won’t last, as the Patriots travel to Buffalo and one team will end the day with a loss. So let’s enjoy the fact that Bills, Dolphins, and Jets all share first place with the Patriots, something which I’m sure won’t last much longer. The Jets will do what they do best, and that’s be the Jets. The Dolphins, I’m sure, will find unique and interesting ways to stay mediocre. And the Bills? Well, what I can I say about that Bills that hasn’t already been said about the Jets and Dolphins?

Our rankings have been updated for today’s games and can be found here.

New to Daily Fantasy Football? Try out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. (Played on FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)

It’s looking more and more likely that Montee Ball will be signing with the Colts in the next few days. I’ve never been a fan, even during the hype train of 2014 that caused millions, if not billions of fantasy fatalities, but I could see him as a solid bench stash if you have the space.

The Cowboys have opted not to put Dez Bryant on the short-term IR, and are still sticking to a 4-6 week timeline for return. This could be considered either really good news, or confirmation that the Cowboys are desperate. Why not both?

Chris Johnson has been named the number one running back in Arizona against Chicago. Probably because he can only run one yard without falling down. Don’t worry David Johnson people, I’m confident he’s the better back and the snaps will, at some point, go his way.

T.Y. Hilton was present and practicing yesterday, but I’m assuming he’s still not 100%. I’d probably stick with safer options right now, as a game-time rule out is possible.

Mike Evans is “closer” to play today, but it’s still up in the air.

It appears Victor Cruz situation just got a bit bloodier. I’m no doctor, much to the chagrin of my mother, but if a “strain” starts bleeding, that might worry me a bit.

    Brother Jay, thank you for the astute FF advice in the past. Dilemma of the week.

    Half point PPR
    2015 bad ass roster
    BigBen
    AP
    Jeremy Hill
    AJ. Green
    DeAndre
    Tyler E
    Flex issue John B, Ameer A, Davante A, Frank Gore, D. Woodhead. Allen Robinson, Stevie Johnson? (Abdulla has a crappy Vikings D, jB is a young stud, Adams could be a target monster) i’m stuck.

      10 team FYI

      @The Mizer: Of course! I have Ameer there, but Woodhead is close.

    Jay,

    In standard league – who would you start (3 wr and 2 rb)

    WR: D Thomas (already started)
    WR: Allen Robinson
    WR: Anquan Boldin
    RB: M Forte
    RB: Jonathan Stewart

    B: M Gordon
    B: A Morris
    B: P Garcon
    B: P Harvin

    Leaning towards forte and Morris, and robinson and Garcon

    thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Blake: Robinson, Garcon, Forte, Stewart.

  3. imp says:

    (Ignore if you went back to TH night thread and already saw this)

    As you talk about bench RB stashes (David Johnson and Montee Ball) above. I’m ancy about my RBs behind my no brainer (and suspended) starters and the QB situation on this team:

    12 team PPR, short 4 man bench, 1Q/2R/3W/no flex
    Tanny
    Jeffrey/Edelman/ARobinson/KWright/ChJohnson
    LBell/Forsett/Vereen/Blount
    Kelce

    Are you dropping anybody to go for David Johnson, Ball, or Duke Johnson at RB or pick up another/different QB (Eli, Mariota) for Tanny?

    I’m leaning to hold, but would love advice. Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @imp: I’m going hold here, your team is pretty solid.

  4. Randy says:
    (link)

    Who would you start in a standard league out of Karlos Williams, McFadden, Ryan Matthews, and David Johnson?

    Also, who could you drop out of Lockett, Coleman, and David Johnson? Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Randy: Williams, and if you need something, probably Lcokett.

  5. Chris says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    12 team standard league flex play: Dwayne Allen, Amari Cooper, Blount, Benny Cunningham or Brandon Coleman? Currently leaning toward Allen over Cooper.

    thanks in advance

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Naw, I’d go Cooper.

      • Chris says:

        thanks

  6. Jerry says:
    (link)

    Hey, Jay! Should I roll with Steve Smith or Mike Evans today?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: Depends on the reports up till game time, but I’m leaning Smith if there is even a hint of Evans still having issues. (I have Evans ranking slightly higher due to hearing he’s finally healthy)

  7. Randy says:
    (link)

    In a 12-team standard league where I have Anderson, Ingram, Ivory, Hillman, and Duke Johnson at RB, would you rather keep Hillman as a handcuff or drop him for a bench stash like Karlos Williams, David Johnson, Chris Johnson, etc.? Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Randy: I think Williams or David Johnson are better stashes right now.

  10. Nick says:

    Stevie Johnson, Allen Robinson, or Tyler Lockett for third WR spot (non-ppr, 1 or per 25 return yards)?

      Jay says:

      @Nick: Johnson.

    Tannehill
    Edelman
    Landry
    Julio jones
    C.j Anderson
    Mark Ingram
    Woodhead
    Seferian Jenkins

    Should I drop Antonio gates for Eli manning and start him over tannehill today? Zach ertz is on the waiver wire. 4 point passing td.
    Also, should I drop vereen for breshad perriman?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steven: hold on both.

  13. JohnnyBeGood says:

    Morning Jay! Thanks in advance …

    1) Start one RB in PPR: T Coleman, D Martin, Bernard ?

    2) start one in FLEX half PPR : Stevie J or A Robinson ?

    3) half PPR : D Martin or Chris Johnson?

  14. JohnnyBeGood says:
    (link)

    Sorry one more ..

    In flex PPR : Sankey or Royal ?

  15. Shookonespart2 says:

    Lamar miller/ Watkins /gore / garçon/ James jones/ Brandon Marshall…

    Sit 2 of the above for today?

  16. Dave says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    Torn between Tevin Coleman and Amari Cooper (PPR) I know Cooper’s the better start in a PPR but I’m really concerned about his matchup against Jimmy Smith and the Ravens while Tevin has a great matchup so I don’t know. Which would you go with?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dave: they are close enough. Coleman is fine.

  17. p says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    My flex spot is pretty weak, my only options are David Johnson or Donte Moncrief. 14-team, PPR. I want to go with Moncrief of course, but I’m struggling with this Hilton game-time decision thing. Regardless, is Moncrief the safer bet for the flex spot?

    thanks as always.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @p: i think so.

  18. Moscowitz says:
    (link)

    Hey pal,

    Smith Jr., Terrance Will or Tate for this week? I am leaning towards Smith

  19. Drekkan says:
    (link)

    Non-PPR standard ESPN scoring. Delanie Walker just tapped out – who to replace him with if the top three options are Kyle Rudolph, Ladarius Green, and Eric Ebron?

    Also in the flex Allen Robinson, Terrence Williams, or Davonte Adams?

  20. Yo soy fiesta says:
    (link)

    Trying to figure out how to evaluate this trade 12 team ppr: karlos Williams vs martavis Bryant.
    My starting WR and RBs: D Thomas, Alshon, K. Wright and Forte, Hill, Woodhead. Bench: Allen Robinson, Wheaton, Moncrief, Williams. It’s 2 wr 2 rb 2 flex

  21. Chucky says:
    (link)

    PPR, need 3 from The Johnson brothers, Stevie and Charles, John Brown, TWill and Roob.
    PPR, need one from Alf, Woodhead or Crowell

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chucky: williams, brown, woodhrad, Stevie

  22. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, just want to confirm a few things… (a) at RB, I have AP.Demarco & Randle flexing. Do you consider Tre Mason who goes up against the Redskins worthy of a start over any of them? I just have a feeling Tre will have a good game with Gurley inactive..

    Than at WR, I pretty much decided Ty will sit regardless of status, leaving Garcon, Roddy White & Amari Cooper in & Charles Johnson / Wheaton on the bench, agreed?

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Also, forgot to mention. Sproles got dropped to Waivers….stinks I paid $16 for L Green (backup TE to Bennett) & $8 for Tre, when now Sproles looks more enticing since I have DeMarco…not sure if any of my WRs, Tre/L Green or Sankey worth dropping for Sproles?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Nick: hold.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nick: agreed with everything.

    Hi Jay,

    12-team PPR

    standard league. which is best upside stash, d.lewis/k.robinson/j.robinson/west/starks. I also have spiller so k.robinson could serve as both spiller if he got more hurt, or even the regular RB if ingram went out

        @Jay: still dion over ball, i just read the above about ball, but who in their right minds would’ve forgot about how ball can’t block, i’m betting bradshaw gets this much more likely than ball.

    Give up: E. Sanders and Gurley

    Receive: Demaryius Thomas

    Not sure the difference between sanders and thomas is worthy of gurley. Thoughts?

    My opponent has Rodgers and Cobb.. His last 2 to go. I have Brandon Marshall for tomorrow and James jones tonight.

    Do I try and cap my opponents upside with Rodgers to James jones tonight? Or do I bench James jones and play frank gore tomorrow night instead?

    I’m up by like 25 right now but Rodgers/Cobb will easily blow through that lead
    Thanks
