I had always thought that spreading the sport of football to Great Britain was seemingly a waste of time. Finally, I can say that the NFL agrees with me. By sending the Jets and Dolphins to London it almost assuredly guarantees that the NFL will spread like frozen butter. Yes, that’s the best I could come up with. On top of having to wake up earlier than normal to start watching football (first world problems), we also have our first bye week to contend with, losing such powerhouse franchises like the Patriots and, uh… the Titans (THEY ARE THE BESTEST FRANCHISE EVER) this weekend. However, there are still some intriguing Early Game match-ups, including the Giants vs. Bills, and Derpfest 2015: Eagles vs. Washington. There’s also a Raiders vs. Bears game, just in case you needed more “stabbing your eyes with the nearest sharp object” in your life. So what I’m basically saying is, my alcohol consumption will be beginning at 9:30 A.M. EDT today. Thanks NFL!

Rankings have been updated for today’s game and you can find them here.

  • Ravens are currently in a “wait and see” mode with receiver Steve Smith as he’s dealing with four broken ribs from Thursday night’s game against the Steelers. There is a possibility that he could play through the injury, but the Ravens have already traded a conditional draft pick to the Rams for Chris Givens, and Smith has been ruled out for at least Week 5. Kamar Aiken is the guy to own, but the group of receivers as a whole is ridiculously bad. It’s a good thing they have an elite quarterback to elevate their play.
  • With Davante Adams still struggling with his ankle injury, it’s being reported that Ty Montgomery will be getting another long look. I mean, we can look at him all we want, but unless the report says he’s going to get passes, than I’m still expecting James Jones to be the main recipient of stealing points away from Randall Cobb.
  • There were rumblings that Arian Foster bought 20 tickets to the game against the Falcons, which might mean something, but probably means nothing. He could be inviting 20 friends and family to watch him play or invite 19 friends and family to watch with him. Correction: He is now starting. Consider him a start for all your fantasy lineups.
  • Alshon Jeffrey has been ruled out, f*cking over teams for the third week in a row. Never has hamstring ever dragged the word “ham” through mud like this.

 

CHOO CHOO B*TCHES. (Brought to you by Bud Light.)

CHOO CHOO B*TCHES. (Brought to you by Bud Light.)

  • LeSean McCoy has been ruled out as well, thus adding fuel to the Karlos Williams hype train. Top-10 option for me, so feel free and get hype!

 

  • What does that even mean? I, too, have some findings. I’m not going to tell you what they are or what they do, but only that I have it. Exactly. Seriously, is this proof that they discovered Marshawn Lynch actually has hamstrings? That’s how I’m reading it. For what it’s worth, it’s a 60% chance he doesn’t play, so get Rawled up folks…
  • There is still some concern with Andrew Luck, mostly because Matt Hasselback is the backup, but also because the Colts can’t capitalize on a sh*tty AFC South without Luck to drag the team to the line right above mediocrity. He’s going to be a close call and a game time decision, but I’d say he starts. Correction: Looks like he’s a no go today

    Pick Two. Standard league scoring.

    Melvin Gordon
    Crowell
    Ellington

    Currently rolling with Gordon and Crowell. Although they are play against each other.

    in a standard where i have all of julio/allen rob/allen/hankerson/hurns/jordy (6 keepers jordy/julio and likely 1 of allen or allen rob will be kept), drop anybody for quick (back now)/rueben randle on rye/v-jax?
    2. same league. have ingram/hyde/bush/mccoy/k.davis/sankey. After this week (i’m starting all of bush/hyde/ingram from byes and mccoy injury he’s finally sitting with, took 3 extra weeks for this since Rex wants to embarrass himself before others do it since he feels left out) should i drop bush for a.andrews?

    • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
      (link)

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: different league. PPR 14 teamer
      3. with mason and starks as RB’s #5/6, drop any/both for the 3 TEN guys mccluster/sankey/andrews, michael. could keep sankey/andrews to see if either comes out on top

      4. keep britt over quick/shorts? britt is also not starting and is about WR 4 or 5 behind most of hurns/garcon/evans and a.brown.

      • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
        (link)

        @Jay: gore for andrews, did you mean bush dropping for andrews and confused SF connection? i don’t have gore, but i’m sure you wouldn’t tell anybody to drop gore for andrews?

        also, i guess these were holds
        PPR 14 teamer
        3. with mason and starks as RB’s #5/6, drop any/both for the 3 TEN guys mccluster/sankey/andrews, michael. could keep sankey/andrews to see if either comes out on top

        4. keep britt over quick/shorts? britt is also not starting and is about WR 4 or 5 behind most of hurns/garcon/evans and a.brown.

          @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: Mean Bush, yeah. No idea how Gore went in there. Cellphonebrainfart maybe.

          Starks for Sankey makes some sense, for upside. Keep Britt for now.

            @Jay: looks like SF fart. Fantasy pros is still doing that with m.johnson DE, he’s STILL listed as TB player, he was last year, traded back to CIN. each week it gets imported to Kevin’s rankings, but he’s not confused, just fantasy pros, each and every week.

            and Hells yeah landry is BACK to both return duties, it’s why you draft that guy like he’s a top 7 WR in .1 pt return yard PPR leagues. ivory i both had to play and had to bench in different leagues,so that’s good too. last minute benched rishard for t.will, that’s looking good too, dude must’ve gotten revis’d.

    tell me if you’ve quit this since i’m trying to get all three of the picks on the same post, last week Tehol got his down in time
    NYJ
    IND
    ATL
    CAR
    BUF
    OAK
    WAS
    CIN
    SD
    GB
    DEN
    ARI
    NO
    SEA

    In standards with all of andrews/l.bell/crowell/david johnson/jennings/dion L i’m thinking it’s too early to drop jennings for spiller or just grab spiller now? i used to have spiller but dropped him for r.matthews (MIA) recently.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: yeah, haven’t done these aince week 2. But If you beat Tehol, I’ll honor the Tshirt thing. Spiller snap count is moving in the right direction. I’m fine with that move.

  4. Comatose says:
    (link)

    Have to decide between starting Morris, Matt Jones, Rawls or Abdullah. Would you roll the dice on Rawls and swap in Abdullah if Lynch plays? Or just play Abdullah?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: yeah, I think that’s the best strat.

  5. Nick says:

    a league mate just dropped Agholor (10 team). Do you see any value in stashing him over Hankerson or M Jones? Also you still have to go DeMarco (starting) over M Jones at flex, right? I’m struggling with benching a top 3 draft pick this early in season however between his injury & past performance, it worries me…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Over Hankerson, yes. And I’m okay starting Murray there. A little nervous though.

    12 team standard… In my flex spot do I start a probable Decker now v Miami, cj2k, gurley, or woodhead?

    Stream Colts D or Jacksonville? Thanks man!

      @Connor: game time decision based on Luck.

    Love the way you expressed Jeffery owner pain in the intro here. Love getting the injury discount in the 3rd, but paying for it in full with how it all played out. Such is fantasy football.

    In 12 team, short bench PPR, I need to add a WR to cover Jeffery’s a$$ or take a zero.

    My drop candidates are Blount and CJ2K (behind LBell/Forsett, start 2 no flex). I need all my other guys to field a team. The wire has the likes of Vereen/Sankey (low upside non-sexy flex types) on a usual basis.

    Do you avoid a zero and drop CJ2K or Blount (and if so who) for a MWallace/LHankerson or RRandle sort of spot starter?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @imp: Tough spot. I’d hold on Blount. Chris Johnson for Wallace is okay in your situation.

  10. Chris says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    12 team head to head league. Bench Megatron for Hopkins and Cooper?

    Cheers!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Tough. But probably not.

  11. Comatose says:
    (link)

    In another league, would you risk benching Demarco for Rawls?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: I’m okay with it.

  12. Nick says:

    ugh these report updates on Murray on Yahoo are annoying…one saying he not playing, another saying definitey is…then they are throwing in that FedEx field has one of the worst turfs especially with all the rain of late….

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: yup. Fantasy Football… I’d probably not take the risk.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so go M Jones over Murray? other options are Tre Mason & Hankerson (which I do not plan on starting either, its 10 team league)

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Jones is okay. I’m waiting on what the pregame update is.

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: ugh yeah I’m going to stick with Murray & call it a day

  20. Dave says:
    (link)

    What’s your thoughts on Carlos Hyde ROS in a PPR? Should I sell high while he still has some value and trade him for Allen Robinson? Would have to probably start Spiller tonight because Dion Lewis is on a bye but my RB’s are Lacy, Dion Lewis, Spiller, Tevin Coleman

    Thanks!

    in 20 team dynasty where my team is based on WAS should i grab chris thompson, he’s being used heavily here early, over helu for RB6 slot. i have morris, but not matt jones, i maybe should’ve grabbed jones as RB #7 in the draft over the big name rookie IDP’s. we start real life amount of IDPs. only 1 RB, 1 RB flex. it is a PPR, but gives more credit for rushing attempts to balance the 1 RB, 2 WR starting slots.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I think they’re riding the hot hand at the moment. Helu has done nothing on the Raiders though, so it makes sense.
