I’ll be honest, generally I have no idea what the Sunday morning post lede will be until the night before when I peruse all the NFL content that drove the week. Kind of like a short synopsis, even though most women think it’s slightly above average. We’ve covered Ezekiel Elliot ad nauseam, injuries galore, all that kneeling, and I’ve even been able to sneak in a few legitimate barbs at Dean Spanos here and there. Why do I bring this all up now? Probably because literally nothing happened this week, yet I still need to type letters that hopefully form words here and there. One of my proudest aspirations as a writer. And this isn’t hyperbole. The Browns were forced to evacuate a London Hotel early. Anthony Barr had his own hot take to combat Aaron Rodgers hot take, because bro-stuff I guess. And we found out the top three quarterbacks with the most passes completed over 20 yards are Tom Brady (not surprising at all), Carson Wentz (kinda surprising), and Alex Smith (WTF?). That’s. About. It. And if you tell me that Alex Smith throwing even two passes over 20 yards is big news, I’d say to you that the trauma from that revelation isn’t news, it’s abuse.

    Hey guys, big game this week. need 2RBs and 1 flex. (PPR)
    Jordan Howard, Doug Martin, Alvin Kamara, Chris Thompson, James White, Wendell Smallwood, DeSean Jackson, & Austin Sefarian-Jenkins.
    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @MrMojoRisin: I’d say Kamara, Thompson, and Howard.

    • MB

      Mb says:

      @MrMojoRisin: I’d play Howard, Martin, and Thompson. Kamara might struggle against the Bears front seven. Martin may struggle against Carolina too but he may get more touches

    In my flex spot, half PPR, do you feel safer with Tate or Marlon Mack ?

    in that 20 teamer where i benched collins (rankings, but i guess i’ll never do that one again) i have to start 2 out of wright/miller (CHI)/beasley. all three ranked closely. PPR. anything to the idea that CHI will HAVE to throw (obv) and at least one of wright/miller have to have a good day, thus start both (beasley ranked slightly higher in PPR both you and the FP top 30’s indexed together). and i see you also had collins lower than beasley, even though you were SUPER high on collins (+19 to ECR)

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: yeah Dolphins were good against rush coming into Thursday, plus split backfield. Made sense at the time. I’d go Miller and Beasley

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: I like Miller and Beasley there for the PPR value. And I’ve been begging people to keep Collins the last few weeks, but I only had him at 32 this week… a bit off.

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

        @Jay: i haven’t dropped him, albeit i only own him in this 20 teamer (duh no drop here, only inactives or straight up backups are available, like drake) and in one 12’er where i was close to dropping him, but didn’t. actually, due to forte being hurt or not trustable for most weeks (till now i guess) i’ve played allen at RB #2 and collins at flex for many weeks before this week. and you certainly appear higher than most rankers at FP on collins even in this week, which was a bad matchup.

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

            @Jay: MF’ing refs, even the announcers have no damn clue why that z.miller TD catch doesn’t count. if i lose it’ll be from that garbage refing. unlike in baseball announcers here are at least willing to tell the truth on this.

  4. Pink Doves says:

    I have a hard time seeing Wentz as QB1 with the weather in Philly. I’m about 20 mins away and it’s going to be heavy heavy rain all game. Anyways…

    .5 PPR

    I have no WR3 this week due to injuries/bye. I was going to use Kearse but the NYC weather is terrible as well.

    LaFell vs Indy
    Fowler vs KC…leaning his way just wish Sanders was ruled OUT
    Thompson vs Oak

    Reed vs Dall or Henry vs NE? Weather in Wash too.

    Thanks!

    • MB

      @Pink Doves: I think you bring up a good point, in DC now and the wind and rain are just starting. He’ll move a bit lower on my next update in a few minutes… I love Thompson there. And Reed.

    (link)

    neato first week all year i bench crowell (14 teamer PPR for mack, see how it goes, started bad)

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

        @Mb: in that league i got a lot of guys who most weeks run close (kelley/crowell/mack/stewart) this is actually first week in a long time it wasn’t an easy crowell from rankings (mack this week finally got a bump). when you see those names it’d be hard to believe this is the best team in the league, except i also have brown/hunt/fitz (he’ll fall now of course)/parker/fuller and great IDP’s (start only 5 total so i guess a “mid-sized” depth IDP 14 team league)

  6. Monster mash says:

    Morning & happy Sunday funday Mr Jay!!

    .5 PPR league here’s my RBs Gordon, hunt, mcaffery, Aaron jones, AP, McKinnon, Chark west (Hunt cuff), ekeler (Gordon cuff), and David Johnson on IR. I’m not dropping DJ- mainly because it’s a keeper league & I plan on keeping him in 2018

    My WRs we start 3 could be 4 w/ flex. Keenan Allen, tyreek hil, doug Baldwin, chris hogan, will fuller, Parker & Sanu

    TE I’ve been streaming since week 1: I added & im not confident in it, Ryan Griffin on the road at Seattle.

    QB Dak

    D/st Philly D (they host Niners , its going to be a rainy mess- will the rain benefit eagles D? Eagles D were horrible against the TEs last week gave up 2 TDs to Reed & Vernon had 67 yds receiving. Will losing Jordan hicks hurt this D? CB Roby is out as well

    Let’s get started I’m going to need a lot of good vibes sent my way today I’m facing one of the top teams & all of his players except for two are going at 1pm slate! Yikes!

    1.) TE. Roll with my stream of Griffin (not Peter but his cousin Ryan): available TEs are Zach Miller at New Orleans, jack Doyle at cincy , fells / or ebron hosting Steelers, Nick o Leary vs raiders, kittle at Philly see above what I mentioned about what Reed & Vernon did to Philly d last week, or oj Howard hosting panthers.

    2.) roll with Philly D or do you think it’ll be a let down for the eagles? Avail D’s are
    Saints (vs bears)

    Lions D (vs Steelers)

    Cowboys D (@ Washington)

    3.) it’s too late to do a trade for this week but I can do a trade just won’t get that player til tues AM which is fine. Trade hogan for jimmy graham (then get him to throw in TEvin Coleman?) if I do that then flip mcaffery for Cooks or Crabtree? Who would you prefer ROS: Cooks vs crabs vs Mcaffery? Besides graham there isn’t a TE I’m trading for: the Gronk & Ertz owners said they aren’t moving Gronk or Ertz, the graham owner also owns Kelce & ASJ he said kelce won’t be traded. After that I’m just in stream worthy guys. Lol if you can tell by my draft technique I didn’t invest a lot of draft stock into TEs. I may just continue to stream.
    Also reason I mentioned graham is because that owner wants to deal him , plus I’m hearing Seattle could move him at the deadline, possible landing spot Houston with Seattle interested in Duane brown.

    4.) are you worried about Gordon today? He’s been dealing w/ a foot issue. Adam schefter says that his foot is an “issue” with potential rain moving into Massachusetts today not sure the rains time line, but the matchup is too juicy now with no Hightower on my bench there’s mcaffery . On the wire there’s Jalen Richard, Deandre Washington, Rawls.
    I know I gotta start Gordon unless he has a setback during warm ups due to the work load but RBs need their feet lol

    — lastly looks like teams are calling about martavis Bryant would you add him now in case he gets traded by tues 4pm? If he’s not traded then I’ll dump him – the teams interested in Bryant are supposedly playoff teams. Hmm Dallas? Philly? Patriots? Buffalo?

    Thanks man!

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Monster mash: I’d play Griffin this week. Roll with Philly, weather is supposed to suck. 1. Crabtree 2. Cooks 3. Mcaffery

      I wouldn’t trade Hogan, just stream tight ends

      Not worried about Gordon

      I don’t think the Steelers are going to trade him

      • Monster mash says:
        (link)

        @Mb:

        Thanks MB, I didn’t think Pitt would deal Bryant either I figured they already would’ve by now. There’s zero chance they deal him to an AFC rival such as the pats . I like him better than juju hopefully for the Steelers sake & Bryant’s sake they figure it out

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Monster mash: Sup MM! So here we go:

      1) I have a Doyle stream there, 2) I think Philly D is fine, the weather should help, 3) I’d want Coleman there, but yeah, I like it. I’d hold on McCaffrey. 4) Eh, yeah, I’m concerned, but not enough to start any wire guys. I’d still put him out based on that. 5) Sure, if you have the room, why not?

    With Zeke’s hearing tomorrow……..Do you think Mc fadden is worth picking up???? Thanks…

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @Todd: morris too, still arguments on both sides

      1. mcfadden side: certain DAL beat writers claim he’ll be the guy
      – mcfadden is closer in style (can catch pretty well) to zeke
      – supposedly from similar beat DAL writers owner likes mcfadden better

      2. morris side: morris is actually playing football (being active every game, mcfadden never this year, and mcfadden didn’t play last year either, morris did)
      -morris shows up in most spots (or did back when this thing heated up) as backup, not mcfadden
      -morris has traditionally been less fragile (however the mcfadden side would probably use this truth as why he’s been inactive all year and last year to “keep him safe in case he’s needed”)

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        @The Harrow: one of the razz guys was FAR ahead of the others in thinking this would be mcfadden (by this point due to the DAL beat writers it’s mostly the default position for fantasy writers). can’t remember if it was zach or MB, pretty sure it was one of them and ONLY one of them.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Todd: Yeah, his handcuffs should not be on the wire, no matter what.

  9. Lex Ruger says:

    Mack or Smallwood ROS +1 ppr 12 team….. I’m leaning towards keeping smallwood…better team better schedule

      @Lex Ruger: Mack this week, Smallwood long term by a hair.

    In a tight spot after the London game.. need upside now..

    Diggs laid an egg vs their thicken. Had rivers fired up but they have Keenan Allen and I need some upside plays. So..

    Watson or rivers at qb? (He has Allen)

    Agholor/Smallwood/dion Lewis at flex?

    (link)

    Hey jay! My QB is Dak Prescott, I only roster 1 QB. Unfortunately he plays the 4 pm window but looking to be an awful rainy mess at the redskins stadium.
    I can drop my worst bench guy to start either
    Trevor semien weather looks 50’s & pleasant on MNF at KC, or the rookie Mitch trubisky at New Orleans in that dome. I can drop my worst bench guy now & re-evaluate come 4pm but reports are not good lol . A lot of rain games today but before you know it we will have snow

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Teddy ball game: Sup Teddy! Tough one, probably try Trubisky if the weather gets worse. Tough one… really the first tough weather day for football.

  14. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
    (link)

    why in the hell is smallwood getting no carries in an entire half?!

    16 team dynasty need minimum 7 ARI players at all times.
    QB (1, max 2 active): mccown/moore (moore’s getting cut next week)
    RB (2, 6) hyde/breida/kelley/perine/j.allen/stewart
    WR (3, 7) evans/garcon/doctson/t.will (LAC)/m.williams/mart bryant/d.thompson
    TE (1, 3) ertz
    1 flex
    stash slots (players can go here if they have any reason they might not play, bye week guys have to come off in the next week): d.johnson, c.johnson, lad green, ellington, palmer, hightower, john brown
    K (1, 2) forbath
    stash: dawson
    LB (2, 3) burfict, trevathan
    DL (2, 3) heyward, hughes
    DB (2, 3) amos, addae
    team D: MIA
    stash: ARI
    stash IDP: campbell, freeman, levy, ogletree, barron, bucannon, mathieu

    since my QB’s suck for the future i have to hope i can draft the extraordinarily likely QB ARI should grab with it’s 1st rounder next year. other than that, would you trade mart bryant for trubisky in this league (PPR)? if palmer even exists next year i’d have him and trubisky, ALSO our cap isn’t a hard 2, we can have as many QB’s from team of our name as we want (but if 3 or more total only 1 can come from team not our name) so if ARI slowly grooms a rookie i could own rookie/palmer/trubisky at same time.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Yeah, I love Smallwood, but they seem to like spreading it around based on gameplan.

      Yeah, I’d do that to bolster your longterm QB outlook.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: what if i could waiver garrappplolololo here, or mahomes? how’d you rank those 2 along with trubisky long term. gotta think they are at least close. mahomes just got dropped. it finally happened with drake, what you’ve been saying for like 2 years, he’s a good stash. and logic won, morris appears to be the guy contrary to all those DAL beat writers that trolled us logicians. thankfully in 2 spots i have morris, mcfadden in none. i knew it made no damn sense for the guy who’s inactive since start of 2016-till now to suddenly be a starter.

  15. The Harrow says:

    jebus doyle has stolen all of hilton’s catches. it’s damn ugly to see non-deep leagues with doyle on bench (need backup for rudolph’s next week bye)

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @The Harrow: yippee, although while starting at that 21 point (bonuses for over 100) difference between doyle and rudolph i almost didnt’ see that fuller has 14.9 (bonus for over 40 yard catch) and i didn’t even know the game started yet.

      • MB

        Mb says:
        (link)

        @The Harrow: Doyle and Fuller are now unbenchable

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          @Mb: fuller i wasn’t benching of course, or no, i grabbed him in this money league and only missed him by 5 minutes in another one of same size. in both he had been drafted but dropped about a week before he became relevant.

          • Jay

            Jay says:
            (link)

            @The Harrow: Yeah, Fuller is kinda like DeSean Jackson from the past, in that he’ll show up with big games about 30% of the season, and you just don’t know when. That’s how I feel at least.

    (link)

    2 QB half PPR 12 team dynasty. team is in trouble with rodgers out, will continue to keep trying my best at 6-2 and hope to lose for draft picks.

    QB (2) brissett (will only lose this week from playing moore over him would’ve been 7-1)/rodfather/mahomes/moore (he’s likely a drop here)
    RB (2) kamara/ingram/darkwa/kelley/smallwood
    WR (3) lee/jordy/d-jax/allen/theilen
    TE (1) ertz (need a TE for week 10)
    2 flexes
    K butker
    team D DEN
    IR rodgers/edleman (dropped woodhead only 2 IR slots)
    IDP flexes (4) t.smith/ogletree/burfict/collins/r.jones/amos (have 2 extras from bye weeks but could drop at least one of them here now)

    1. while maybe wanting to keep 5 of the IDP guys (mostly from not great FA guys at other positions) who’s the 2 possible drops, amos probably and one other

    2. best TE for week 10 when ertz is off:
    sims vs GB
    VD vs MIN (reed could be out then)
    bennett @ CHI
    ebron vs CLE
    james @ IND (mcdonald got hurt with something yesterday)

    3. guess p.lynch over moore immediately? (every day FAAB waivers)

    4. any of my RB/WR drop for any of: stewart/doctson/decker?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Alfred E. Naujocks: Tough one… probably Ogletree? A tough one.

      2) Double check my rankings, but leaning Vernon, since I don’t want it on the record that I like VD’s.

      3) Yeah. 4) Hold for now.

  18. Alfred E. Naujocks says:
    (link)

    @Jay: i myself have a personal (not REALLY personal if i met him in real life i wouldn’t care or trouble him, i’m not insane so more just fantasy vendetta) vendetta against VD, a few years back when he was quite good at SF i lost at least 700$ in 2 fantasy SB’s in a week 16 game where he was targeted at least 6 times, dropped at least 3 of them, ended up getting a zero, and i lost in one league by .4 and another .25 both having VD. ONE catch, even for negative yards i would’ve won both. i can’t remember who my starting TE’s were in those leagues but both had either gotten hurt by that week (probably reed in one of them) or VD was doing better than by that point.

    NYG vs LAR (o.vernon probably back?)

    (link)

    20 team PPR. with sanders out and stafford doing somewhat well i’m gonna win which is big since 6-2 vs 5-3 in a 20 when only 6 make playoffs is a big deal. about to move down to 2nd in points this week. only need like under 4 from hill to win now.
    QB stafford/bortles
    RB (2) gurley/collins/j.allen/forte/morris
    WR (3) hill/crabtree/wright/beasley/golladay
    TE (1) ertz/z.miller
    1 flex
    other than trying to drop CIN for IND, i certainly need to drop miller for a TE and my 3rd-5th WR looking either injured/bad or both.

    1. is sims/o’leary/derby best TE order?
    2. drop any of my WR for any of: louis (NYG), higgins, mcbride (CHI, big week), hollins, moore (BAL). if golladay keeps staying injured i gotta get somebody that might get some points, or at least if beasley also is hurt.

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: 1. Yes, but I think O’Leary might be real close there. 2. Golladay for Louis isn’t crazy at all. I’d maybe take McBride for the matchup and then reassess, and keep an eye on Louis.

              @Jay: hehe, so in this 20 teamer where i need wins (although having lost i only moved from 5th (due to divisions determining standings such garbage) to 6th) i lose by .6 but in another league where i lost rodgers i continue to win (now 7-1 and am probably down to 5th best team and have extremely small chance of doing anything in playoffs) this week by .1 due to butker’s crazy amount of kicks in 2nd half. F’ing alex MF’ing smith throwing those 2 garbage balls barely missing hill turned out to be big. really just remove his end zone pick and i win too.

    12 team PPR. staring 3 WR have
    DT/a.brown/fitz/parker/stills/maclin
    TE (1) witten

    have NO D to drop (JAX on bye own), rather grab v.davis/kroft or another WR in one of: r.anderson/m.lee

        @Nick: probably kelce side of that one. i remember reading somewhere here about 3 weeks back that jeffery had a ridiculously hard schedule to start season and it gets much better ROS. kelce probably safest highest floor player in it. also you probably lose the lowest floor player (ASJ)

    finally got some help in this 20 team PPR where i lost from having benched collins (and even then only by .6 due to hill’s end zone pick and a.smith missing him twice barely on bad throws)
    there is no way i could get drake here, but with morris up i’m much better in RB’s vs WR (already was)
    QB (1) stafford/bortles
    RB (2) gurley/collins/morris/j.allen/forte
    WR (3) crabtree/hill/beasley/golladay/wright
    TE (1) ertz/z.miller (being dropped for some TE shortly, probably sims)
    clearly it makes sense for me to trade a RB (or RB + WR) for a WR (or WR + RB to balance). clearly gurley is a keep, what order should i trade away (clearly i’ll get better WR for say collins and probably j.allen/morris than forte) RB’s?

      @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: Hmm, probably see what Morris can get right now. Preferably to the Zeke owner. Then maybe Allen plus Forte. I’d rather keep Collins, but you should be able to get something nice for him, and I’m not totally opposed to it if the deal is right.

    smallwood’s off to the glue factory. i was able to snag lynch though for nearly free, with only $5 left in FAAB (spent fairly large last week on m.moore, thinking he’d be better than the cutlet). other than my impossible $5 drake bid who else should i attempt to win. 12 team 2 QB league from above. due to butker’s crazy kicks i won by the smallest margin i’ve ever won by and am being luck trolled into 7-1 with 5th most points, and clearly that’ll trend downward. unless i keep getting really lucky scheduling for the next 8 weeks. half PPR.
    QB (2) brissett/tyrod/lynch/mahomes
    RB (2) kamara/ingram/darkwa/kelley/smallwood
    WR (3) lee/jordy/d-jax/allen/theilen
    TE (1) ertz
    2 flexes
    K butker
    team D DEN
    IR rodgers/edleman
    IDP flexes (4) t.smith/ogletree/burfict/collins/r.jones/amos

    already using a $1 or 0 to get VD (never cheaper than that, usually it costs more) or another TE, but what’s best order for smallwood dropping other than drake: d.williams/ivory/woodhead/stewart/

    14 teamer PPR. have BY FAR the top team with this:
    QB (1) RW3
    RB (2) hunt/j.allen/mack/crowell/stewart/kelley
    WR (3) a.brown/fitz/parker/fuller/lockett
    TE (1) ASJ
    1 flex
    IR olsen
    have an extra IDP slot before ASJ’s bye to grab a TE with. with these other guys being won for these amounts (at differing times)
    jjss $10 (last week)
    j.brown $8 (right after he came back, did good once, and palmer still healthy)
    mack $16 (to me, surprisingly nobody else bid anything 2 zero bids few weeks ago)
    lat murray $20 (and a 15 for 2nd place, right when cook when out)
    smallwood $43 (many weeks ago to a RB desparate team, my 22 lost)
    higgins $40 (and a 15 2nd place)
    cohen $70 (right after he blew up)
    mack $21 (earlier in year, dropped later)
    k.will ARI $40 (when dj got hurt)
    c.johnson $9 (when it was clear k.will wasn’t the guy at ARI, and a 2nd 9)

    i have 36/100 left. thinking to do $22 on morris (dropping stewart) and $16 for drake (dropping stewart). those look good?

    Who has better dynasty value Alex Collins or Drake. Really hurting at RB and first on the waiver wire order. Thanks!

      @Corey: I like Drake, but I’d say Collins since we have a larger body of work to judge with.

  27. Corey says:

    Thanks for the feedback. I’m with you on Drake but it’s hard to deny Collins production.

      @Corey: Completely agree!

    Trade question for ya

    14 teams, 0.5 ppr, start 1qb, 2, rb, 2 wr, 2 flex (rb, wr, te)

    QB Wilson
    RB McCoy, Elliot, McKinnon, Morris, Woodhead
    WR Hill, Shepard, Doctson, Lockett
    TE Graham, Henry, Olsen

    Ive been pretty weak at wr all year, but have managed a 7-1 record. Pryor kinda screwed me; just dropped him this week.

    The trade available is Henry for DeVante Parker. Do you think this is enough value for Henry? What receivers would you be targeting for Henry? The initial trade was for Jeffery, but then he countered with Parker. I personally think Henry’s best days are ahead of him. I could see if I can move JimmyG

    Ive got the TE depth and its nice trading him on his bye week. Thoughts? Thanks man!!

      @Lubey: Maybe a few weeks ago, but right now I think it’s a slight overpay for you.

    @Jay: drop blount for any of: forte/lacy/d.will/kelley/breida/ivory. also have hunt/white/gore/mack/melgor. half PPR.

      @Eli Man Penguin Boy: Naw, I think I’m fine holding onto Blount based on that list.
