While it’d be justified to revisit the whole Ezekiel Elliot suspension saga since, you know, it has yet to be resolved, I’d like to focus on a few other news items, just one week before the season-half. Did you know that the Dolphins and Ravens are on pace for a NFL record-low 8.5 yards per completion? I’d figured the Chiefs would have been there, since that’s Alex Smith’s throwing range. The Texans have led the NFL in scoring since Deshaun Watson became a starting quarterback. The Texans leading in offensive anything is the seventh sign of the end of the world (the sixth was David Johnson’s leg exploding). Oh, and yeah, Aaron Rodgers was officially placed on the IR. Too soon?

    Better stash J Matthews or C Davis?

    PPR

  2. Chud says:
    (link)

    Good stuff Jay!

    Better RB (ppr) for remainder of the year: Henry or Mixon? I own Henry but was offered Mixon for him.

    Also, better stash RB: Mack, Breida, or Procise?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chud: I’d say Mixon, but it’s close. And for stash, Mack.

      • MB

        Mb says:

        @Jay: Mixon and Mack

  3. Jake says:

    If Fournett sits would you play Ivory over Either of these guys in my flex spot Kamara, Dez, Fitzgerald hard to bench my wr,s for Ivory but he should see close to 20 carries and a few catches what would u do ? Thanks

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Jake: he is sitting to my knowledge and I’d play him over Kamara

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Jake: I wouldn’t, no.

  4. fudgemybudge says:

    Morning man & happy Sunday of week 7:

    .5 PPR league im in a bit of a pickle; at RB1 slot go with Gordon who’s been dealing with a shoulder injury but is good to go vs the Broncos. Week 1 at Denver he had 18 att for 54 yards. No rushing TD, but had 1 receiving TD.
    What’s encouraging is friggin darkwa ran wild like hulk hogan in the 90’s on the Broncos last week & that was also a road game for the Denver D, but not sure if they were rusty coming off the bye

    If I start Gordon at RB, at flex I can go with either AP, McKinnon, Smallwood, Mcaffery or Rawls.

    My RB2 already played on Thursday & was hunt.

    WR side of things we start 3 WRs my WR3 went on Thursday which was tyreek hill , so for those other two slots debating between Keenan Allen who’s been injured his shoulder during practice & couldn’t practice Friday- given this new injury & facing the Denver secondary worries me. Also have hogan, Baldwin, Sanu

    Thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby’s world: Morning Bobby! I’d do Gordon with AP there, though McKinnon is close. I’d do Hogan there.

      • MB

        Mb says:
        (link)

        @Jay: agree with Jay, yeah I the cards are stacked up against Allen this week

  6. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Superflex league, have Luck and Bridgewater on my bench. Replace either of them w/ Brissett?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d replace Luck, Im starting to highly doubt he plays this season

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: Yeah, Brissett for Luck is fine at this point.

  7. Will says:
    (link)

    Mixon, D. Henry, and Ivory for 2 spots in 0.5PPR. What does your gut say?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Will: Mixon and Ivory. I moved Ivory up to RB14 this week

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Will: Yeah, with MB here, Mixon and Ivory.

  8. MattyIce says:
    (link)

    D. Martin, D. Henry, or K. Allen in PPR? I fear Allen is just an injured decoy against the Broncos quality secondary.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @MattyIce: gonna be a heavy usage day for Doug Martin. I’d roll with him

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MattyIce: Going Martin there.

  9. Todd says:

    Good morning, Would you trade Marvin Jones and W. Smallwood for C.J. Anderson????My other RB’s are Bell and Hunt…..12 team PPR flex league…….Thanks……

      @Todd: yes absolutely

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Andrew: I’d start Aaron Jones, Montgomery in flex if you have to

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Andrew: probably Jones, but it’s a coin flip.

  14. Tommy Boy says:
    (link)

    Hey jay! Just had an interesting muffin a Boston cream pie muffin

    Half PPR league start or sit Keenan Allen I’d be looking at Baldwin (at NYG) or Sanu (@ NE) as starts over Allen.

    Next who’s a good add as a stash not to play now but maybe next few weeks? Breida, Rawls, devantea Booker, Burkhead, Corey Davis, Greg Olsen ?

    Thanks & gracias good day!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Tommy Boy: does that involve Gronk? Sounds hot. And Baldwin probably. Wouldn’t mind grabbing Oksen.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Tommy Boy: I agree with Jay

  15. MattyIce says:

  16. Callmeeljefe says:
    (link)

    Need to make up ground going against Carr, higher upside- Goff or Hundley? Also have Gurley so worried about too much in that same game…Winston an option too, but his injury cost me last week and not looking to repeat that…thx

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Callmeeljefe: highest upside is probably Hundley, could be a disaster but what can ya do?

  17. The imp says:
    (link)

    1-5 in 2 rb, 1qb PPR and owning
    McCoy, white, Allen, Powell
    Cousins/wentz

    Are you dropping to get Ivory to start today?

    Good luck!

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @The imp: I’d drop Powell to get the Ivory start

      • The imp says:

        @Mb: Thanks, Matt

        • MB

          Mb says:

      @The imp: yeah, with Matt on that.

  18. Big League choo says:
    (link)

    Willie Snead is out and we don’t allow pickups in the morning

    Would you trade Coleman and Snead for Blount and John brown?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Big League choo: yes I’d do that. What kind of bullshit rule is that?

      • Big League choo says:
        (link)

        @Mb: we run waivers every day…never any free for all for pickups. You have to go grab a guy just in case…got too many injuries this year diggs, Parker, Tate, David Johnson on my bench.

  19. Russell says:
    (link)

    Would you play Ivory over Chris Thompson or Mixon in a PPR league? Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Tough, but probably not.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Russell: yes I’d play him over Chris Thompson

  20. Scott P says:
    (link)

    How risky of a play is Kelvin Benjamin today? He has a tough defensive match up from what I’ve read and is hobbled by a knee injury. I have John Brown now, but Amendola and Sanu are available on the wire. Should I start one of them over Benjamin?

    I am in first place, but really need a big win this week. 10 team, non-PPR, standard scoring.

    Starters:

    Cousins (bench Wilson)
    Hunt, Ajayi, Mixon (bench Kamara)
    AJ Green, Benjamin (bench John Brown)
    Gronk

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Scott P: He has a tendency to disappear when he’s nursing something so I don’t mind John Brown here

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott P: Brown is safer like MB said, so I’d probably just go him.

  21. Blake says:

    doug martin or C ivory in PPR league?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Blake: wow. Ummmmmm. Martin.

    • Jay

      @Blake: Martin.

  22. Bob barker come on down says:
    (link)

    Hey man! .5 PPR league, do you trust chris hogan tonight he’s been dealing with rib issuethat he suffered last week orbwpuld you go with Baldwin instead?

    Thanks man!

  23. William Hung says:
    (link)

    After this week, I have the following players on my roster that are getting cut:
    -Martavis, Ricardo Louis, and Thomas Rawls… right now my only playable WR is Amari Cooper and I need to start 3. FML…

    I really need Parker to get over that ankle injury

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: My bad, was writing today’s post with a major delay!

      But yeah, this is a tough situation. What’s the wire look like?

  24. Sinkhole Demayo says:
    (link)

    this week is starting to show just how awful a whole bunch of offenses can be all at the same time (some of it is the QB injuries in last 2 weeks). just a litany of ugliness.

    • Sinkhole Demayo says:
      (link)

      @Sinkhole Demayo: going forward how’d you rank the new QB’s in
      moore (hell he might be better than cutler anyway)
      stanton (the worst of the bunch, might have best playing time safety though)
      chainsaw kessler
      gabbert (in case i’m wrong about stanton’s playing time safety)
      kaepernicking

      clearly this is only for 2 QB leagues (or super flex) where i’ve lost AAron or hoyer.

      • Sinkhole Demayo says:
        (link)

        @Sinkhole Demayo: as far as waivering/owning goes throw hoyer in there as well. in a 14 team super flex i have goff/palmer/hoyer and r.lewis to drop. so could drop hoyer too, but maybe not for all of above.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Sinkhole Demayo: Ugh.

        I think that’s the order. I don’t think Kap gets signed.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Sinkhole Demayo: Yeah, just finished my post for yesterday and the games were terrible. I should have slept in and drank a lot more.

  25. Robert says:
    (link)

    Derek Carr or Tyrod Taylor for the rest of the season?

    • I don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
      (link)

      @Robert: carr.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Robert: Taylor, but it’s close.
