With no other “marquee” match-ups for the early slate of games this Sunday, I suppose I’m pigeon-hole’d into discussing the always “just about mediocre” rivalry of the Bengals and the Ravens. Not quite up to par with the Steelers and Ravens rivalry, which usually involves a lot of angst and stabbings (Ray Lewis misses those days), the Bengals and Ravens yearly face-off’s are like the adopted child of the AFC North’s divisional games. Baltimore has seen a bit more success in the playoffs in recent memory, but that’s only because I’m comparing them to the Bengals, who last won a playoff game during the Hoover administration. This very early 2015 season though, favors Cincinnati with their 2-0 start. You might say it’s because of Skyline Chili, but then I would say, have you ever had Skyline Chili? Rather, it’s probably from the surprisingly steady play from Andy Dalton. The Ravens could have a difficult road ahead if they lose and go 0-3, but they do have Murphy’s Law on their side. Which usually ends up being the best weapon against Dalton. Plus, the Ravens have the most elite quarterback in the NFL. His 2015 fourth-quarter passing rating of 34.6 and two interceptions proves this as fact. An elite fact if you will…

Rankings have been updated for today’s games, and can be found here.

  • Tom Coughlin said that “he’s been told” Victor Cruz will play in Week 4. I think it’s cute they haven’t sent him off to the old peoples home yet. While they’re at it, maybe they could also tell him that he needs a functioning running back too.
  • Hue Jackson has said that he plans on using Jeremy Hill as his “workhorse” today against the Ravens. Because I guess there are no such things as workcows.
  • The Rams are planning for rookie Todd Gurley to make his debut today. I’m planning to date Emma Stone, so let’s see how both of these plans work out…

Truly the seventh sign that the world is ending…

  • Marshawn Lynch is dealing with a calf injury and will be a game time decision. (Though, reports are leaning towards him starting.) I’m assuming that they will be feeding his calves Skittles, but I’m also not a doctor, so there’s a small chance they won’t be using this method.

    Howdy Jay!

    Half ppr

    Insight on this trade I did yesterday

    I traded James Starks + Anquan Boldin

    In return I got Alshon Jeffery

    My WR’s are demaryius Thomas, john brown, brandin cooks, Terrence Williams, Doug Baldwin, Andre Johnson & Jeffery

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby’s world: Love it for you. Now if Alshon can get on the field at some point…

      • Bobby's world says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Exactly , I did it as a buy low/ stash.

        Since Alshon is out this week I’m placing him in my IR slot, I can now add someone without dropping anyone

        Which of these are you adding for depth/ could have a good game & could be a top of the waiver adds?

        Allen Hurns, zac Stacy, tavon Austin , Devin smith,Marvin jones, Ty Montgomery, Thomas Rawls, mike Davis

  3. Viktor Vaughn says:
    (link)

    Need to start two of Carlos Hyde, Danny Woodhead, and Jonathan Stewart in a PPR league. What do you think, Razzball?

  4. Help says:
    (link)

    Start 4 of the following, one has to be a wr…

    Gore/Forsett/miller/freeman/ James jones/ Sammy Watkins,

    I think right now I’m leaning gore/Forsett/freeman Watkins but appreciate any insight.

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Help: Gore, Forsett, Freeman, and Watkins. So we agree.

  5. Help says:
    (link)

    Would you deal pierre garcon and freeman for john brown and mike Crabtree?

    I’ve got a weird feeling about Crabtree this year and still think brown is the wr to own in arizona. Meanwhile I cannot watch Kirk cousins throw another pass haha

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Help: Yeah, seems okay. I do like Brown.

  6. Mike says:

      Jay says:

      @Mike: Williams.

  7. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, do you agree with dropping my backup TE L Green (Have Bennett as starter) for J Thomas, just as a stash? Other TEs available in my 10-teamer are Ebron, Daniels, Davis, Fleener, D Allen…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: totally. Green has been dealing with wo concussions at this point.

    LOSING MY MIND. Love Sundays. Whatcha think miller, blount, or woodhead in my RB2? Standard pts league.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jared: Miller, but I’m a bit nervous there.

      • Jared says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I guess I could swing woodhead into my flex then. Woodhead or Robinson in flex?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Jared: Robinson.

  9. Whiskey T says:
    (link)

    With the reports of Gurley supposedly playing this week…. Do you toss him in your flex over Woodhead, CJ2K, or Sankey? Essentially who do I start out of those 4 in a standard 12 team… Thanks!

  10. BambooLounge says:
    (link)

    Pick 2, half-point PPR:

    Lamar Miller/Woodhead/Golden Tate

  11. P says:
    (link)

    Just wondering on your ppr rankings this week , specifically in regard to Spiller and David Johnson. I was going to start Johnson as RB2 until I saw your rankings. I’m very hesitant to start Spiller…just wondering what the rationale was. Thanks as always!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @P: my feeling is that McCown will be running a simple offense, including screens and check downs.

  12. Eric says:
    (link)

    Hi Jay,
    12-team PPR

    Should I start Nate Washington vs TB or put Davante Adams in there vs KC for Monday? I’d much rather have Adams in, but his questionable tag is worrying me and don’t wanna screw myself for MNF. What do you think?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Eric: Adams was in practice on Friday. It’s risky, but I think he goes.

  13. Money Mike says:

    Hi Jay,

    Need advice for 12 team H2H .5 PPR league. We also get points for return yards.

    Flex – pick 1 out of A. Blue, M. Colston, C. Sims, E. Royal

    Leaning towards Blue with the TB matchup.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @AZCardinalKid: leanings Sims here, close with Blue though.

  26. Blake says:

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Blake: It’ll be close. I’m giving the edge to Freeman there, didn’t see him when I first read it.

            (link)

            @Jay: NOW this bum looks decent, i dropped freeman as RB #5 when i only needed post week 2, he looked awful twice.

    Hello! .5 ppr need a TE; here’s who’s available

    Vernon Davis (@ Arizona)

    Gary barnridge (vs raiders)

  31. Andrew says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    In a 0.5PPR league, I have Dion Lewis, Frank Gore, and Eddie Lacy. Need to pick 2 and its looking like Lacy is going to start on Monday. In a deep league and somebody else picked up Starks, so would really be a gamble to start Lacy. Leaning toward starting Lewis and Gore, what do you think? Gore has to show up one of these weeks, right?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Andrew: I’ll stick with Lacy, reports are looking good.

    Could you justify picking up Miami & benching STL for the weekend? Would have to drop Tre Mason or R White or Wheaton in 10 teamer. I have AP/DeMarco/J Randle/Sankey/ Tre at rb & Ty/Amari/Garçon/Charles Johnson/R White/Wheaton plus M Bennett & j Thomas at TE. I’m not projected to win this week (I have Peyton at QB)…we start 2 RB, 3WR, 1 Flex & 1 TE in this standard league…
