daltonaut

The first month of the season is already gone (or I guess more accurately, one quarter), but however you’d like to describe the passage of time this football season, one thing is eminently clear: there are a lot of undefeated teams. Six in fact. They are the Bengals, Broncos, Falcons, Packers, Panthers, and the Patriots (because there is no God). Out of those teams, it is my expert pedestrian opinion, only two teams have staying power to continue at an elite level all the way through to the Super Bowl, and that’s the Packers and the Patriots (because of the aforementioned God being missing in action.) The Bengals will once again go 12-4 and then 0-1 in the playoffs (until they tell me otherwise), Peyton Manning’s arm will probably fall off once December comes around, the Falcons have feasted on teams that measure right below suck, and the Panthers are pretty beat up. Plus, I don’t believe the NFL accepts playoff teams from the NFC South unless they are under .500. This kinda-sorta (close enough!) segues into the interesting Seahawks/Bengals game. Can Dalton continue playing above the Dalton line? Will Seattle’s offensive line continue to be about as effective as what recovery water is to concussions? Learn the answers to these questions and more!

  • Martavius Bryant tweaked his knee Monday during practice and will be doubtful for Monday Night Football. As an unbiased Chargers fan, I am okay with this.
  • Antonio Gates is expected to have a big role in Monday’s game. No word yet if they are talking about the football game or a basketball game.
  • Marshawn Lynch has been ruled OUT for today’s game against the Bengals. Keep Rawlin’ Rawlin’ Rawlin’ Rawlin’ what? I’m sorry. You’re right. But to be fair, we all let Limp Bizkit do that to us. We are as much to blame as they are…
  • I’d recommend playing Kamar Aiken this week, seeing as how he’s the only receiver the Ravens have left, but his stock is rising even more now that Tashaun Gipson has been ruled out with Joe Haden being questionable. Can the question be, why have you been so terrible?
  • Karlos Williams has been ruled OUT today, which means it’s time to grab some Boobie. Or some Dixon, whichever you prefer. I don’t judge.
  • Julius Thomas is expected to make his first start of the season today, and will not be limited. This comes from Adam Schefter, so it’s totally accurate. 100% of the time, 60% of the time.
  • From Julius to Julio (sorta like Caesar to Cesar, amiright?), Julio Jones is listed as questionable but will start. But his hamstring will be an issue.
  • And the bane that is owning Alshon Jeffery continues to haunt us as he is listed as OUT from his hamstring issues.

    you either forgot to rank sims or have him behind even zenner, which seems odd if it’s the 2nd. In dynasty with these RB’s/WR’s/TE’s and it’s 2 QB and i have 4 of those. 2 flexes and can start TE there. full PPR. start 3 WR, 2 RB.
    forte/ivory/woodhead/j.bell (DET)/k.davis
    allen/hankerson/edelman/r.matthews (MIA)/d-jax/jordy (IR)
    ertz/green julius

    Drop Bell (or maybe K.Davis but he’s been awesome when he had to start) for the guy named after the car that was itself named after a girl and who also has two first names, the 2nd of which is actually a guy’s name in christine michael?

    in 6 pt per passing TD league i have brees (now looking fairly good again), and carr. i know ROS rankings, but in a league like this and with brees having week 11 off these are the week 11 options: what’s my best stash? i don’t think not having a backup with Brees only having 1 decent week and possible recurrence is a great idea. Considering how i’m probably pretty close to having to use this backup yet again (i did lose last week from not trusting brees’ shoulder, playing carr) might want to go with floor. i’ll show next 3 weeks upcoming and brees’ bye in ()
    carr BYE, @ SD, vs NYJ, (@ DET)
    rodfather vs CIN, @ JAX, BYE, (@ NE)
    bradford vs NYG, @ CAR, BYE, (vs TB)

    Pick 2 ….

    Doug Martin vs. JAX
    Melvin Gordon vs. PIT
    Ronnie Hillman @ OAK
    Andre Ellington @ DET
    Alfred Morris @ ATl

    Standard Scoring League.

    Currently rolling with Martin and Gordon. Been switching out Hillman and Gordon all week.

    Thanks Jay!

    • Jay

      @SMLV1: Martin and Hillman, but it’s damn close with Gordon there. Trying to not let homerism dictate my advice…

    Hi, at RB in a 12-team standard league, I have CJ Anderson, J-Stew, McFadden, Karlos Williams, David Johnson. and Ryan Mathews. At WR, have Dez, Jordan Matthews, Rueben Randle, Ty Mont, and DGB. First, if you had to drop 2, who would they be? And who would you start at RB (2), WR (2), and flex (1)? I can also start Eifert at flex, and guys like Crowder, Aiken, etc are on the wire as well.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Randy: Sup Randy. I’d drop DMC and DGB.

      I’d go CJ, JStew (Karlos is out) and Jordan Mathews with Aiken (I’d pick him up). Eifert in the flex.

  5. Chris says:

    Sorry about that… iPhone jitters

    Given Julio news. Would you sit him for ARob this week?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Probably not. Sitting stars is really hard for me to do. You’d figured I’d learn that lesson by now, but I looked over everyone’s rankings to see how crazy I was… everyone still has him at 1 and 2 in WR ranks still. I’m going to wait till game time reports to change my opinion… I think it’s a gut call…

  9. Turd Ferguson says:

    Flex question: James Jones or Jimmy Graham?

    Thanks Jay!

  10. Jerry says:

    Jay, who do you like more for ros: Tavon Austin or Ruben Randle? Thanks and good luck today.

      Jay says:

  12. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    ROS, standard scoring plus 1pt/25 return yds, top 3 out of Harvin, D. Jackson, D. Adams, Cooks and DGB? Will need to start 1 of them most weeks,so probably one high floor guy and 2 high ceiling.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d say Adams and Cooks. But some of these guys are banged up…
