I learned something in our fantasy football group chat this morning. It was a conversation between THE BOOF, DonkeyTeeth and B-Don (they didn’t know I was watching tehehe). If you think about it, it’s kind of obvious, but I’ll bet you two packs of smokes, a bottle of toilet wine, and 3 packs of ramen that you didn’t know that Jonnu Smith is the 0.5 PPR TE1 through two weeks this year! Crap, I keep forgetting that my time has been served for crimes I ALLEGEDLY committed and I don’t have to bet prison items anymore. Which is unfortunate because I really miss that sweet, sweet toilet wine. Another fun fact, getting last place in a prison fantasy league has a little bit harsher of a punishment.. But I digress back to Jonnu. If you followed my rankings in week two, you would have started him in any format! You also might have started Emmanuel Sanders, but it’s not my fault he sucks. I’m just the ranker, sheesh. 

On to week 3. Let’s look at Thur… Nevermind. Really? Dolphins and the Jaguars? Can they just stream this one on Crackle or MySpace? I’ll take a Cowboys game over this. Hasn’t everyone suffered enough this year? Pro tip, be husband of the year and cook your wife dinner and watch a movie and point out that you’re missing Thursday Night Football because you love her and care. I’m sure you won’t miss much, but she doesn’t have to know that. Back to week 3. After two full games from everyone and 73% of the league’s starters on crutches, we’re getting a better idea of what kind of defenses our players will be facing and what the offensive schemes look like. Here are my rankings for the last NFL week of September.

    Sup MB!

    Used my #1 waiver on Davis (slight regret after for not taking Henderson) and managed to get Freeman who cleared. 14m league and dropped Curtis Samuel and Kirk for Davis and Freeman.

    14m league:
    QB – Stafford
    RB – Jacobs, d Johnson, cohen, m. Davis, freeman
    WR – cooper, Julio, Hollywood, Preston Williams, trequan
    TE – Waller, Logan

    Any weak spots? Team has been inconsistent. Looking to upgrade my QB and being offered Cam for cooper.

    • MB

      Hamtime!

      Running back is pretty weak so I’d keep firing waiver wire shots til you get it right.

      I’d hold off on trading Cooper for Cam. This week should be Stafford’s coming out party.

  2. Allan says:
    (link)

    MB,
    Don’t know how much you’re into IDP but should I drop Aaron Donald for lesser known player who’s a DE? Donald is an amazing defensive player and he causes havoc every game but it seems like he rarely makes the actual tackles or sacks.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I haven’t played in a couple years but yeah Havoc doesn’t equal stats. I think you can part ways with him

  3. Crime dog says:
    (link)

    I was getting ready to drop Emmanuel sanders in a 14 team. You have him ranked 36. Talk me off the ledge MB

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I think he just had a bad game with the early drop and penalty. I think pretty highly of Sanders as a player. I’d hold onto him for another week but probably not starting him

      • Crime dog says:
        (link)

        Worth holding over picking up a guy like KJ hamler?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Hamler, long term this year. I like him a lot but may need some games to get his feet under him

  4. hitzone says:
    (link)

    standard league

    tre’quan and Corey davis were just dropped, i have wr issues

    add davis 1st or tre’quan?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Are there any other options? Probably more consistency out of Davis going forward

      • Hitzone says:
        (link)

        12 team standard
        My wr room start 3

        DJ Moore, Ceedee Lamb, Preston Williams, Hardman, Hamler

        Other options Randall Cobb, Alshon Jeffery, Miles Boykin, Demarcus Robinson, James Washington

        Traded my Saquon/Hunt/Gibson for CMC/Mattison this morning. It’s a keeper league, it was a lot especially after just acquiring saquon week before. Ive won two years in a row wanted a shot to repeat plus not having to worry about major recovery.

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Good call getting CMC.

          I’d rather stash Alshon. And cobble WR3 together based on matchups

  5. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    Drop trequan for herbert?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Depends who your WRs and QBs are but Tyrod is starting as soon as he’s healthy

      • Hamtime says:
        (link)

        WRs are cooper, Julio, Hollywood, Preston Williams, and trequan.

        QB is stafford. Reacted bec I saw Tyrod might be out again this week and if Herbert plays as well as last week (and wins), he might keep the job.. or is that a stretch?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          I can’t decipher the coach speak but maybe. He might not have a choice, y’know? You can stash him without losing too much in Tre’Quan

  6. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Drop PLindsay and/or CDavis for any of MWilliams, Valdez Scanlon or DLewis?
    Taylor Fournette
    Godwin MThomas
    KeenanAllen
    BN: Kelley MDavis dobbins Lindsay leveon CoreyDavis

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      Trequon also a FA

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d stay where you are

  7. Alex says:
    (link)

    Debating for my last flex for 1/2 ppr. Gotta choose between Harry, gaskin, Hines, Lewis and trequan. Leaning towards Harry what do You think?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Harry or Gaskin

  8. Russowl says:
    (link)

    10 team non ppr 10 bonus points at 100 rushing and/or receiving yards

    Who to start on last flex spot
    DeVante Parker @jax
    McKinnon @Nyg
    M.davis @Lac
    Gibson @ Cle
    Swift @ Ari

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      McKinnon right now, we’ll see what the injury report brings

  9. Jake says:
    (link)

    Is Leonard Fournette for Christian McCaffery a fair trade or is that not enough ?

    • Homer's got the Runs says:
      (link)

      Not even close for McCaffrey. You would be wiser to hold onto CMC and pick up guys of waivers.

      • Jake says:
        (link)

        I was thinking of offering Fournett for CMS just wondering how lopsided that is dont want to upset the league.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Unless the CMC owner is a fool, you’ll have to throw it another piece

  10. Joe says:
    (link)

    WOAH MB why so low on schultz? Did I royally fuck up bidding on him? Donkey was pretty high… Help me out :S

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I don’t want to overreact tbh. Atlanta has a really bad secondary. He’s still the 4th option in the passing game. He’s worth a stash if you have the room

      • Joe Prusinski says:
        (link)

        Thanks, man. You, Grey, Donkey, Ralph, Bdon and the rest are all fucking GOATs!!!! Even if you’re not right on a call (NEVER, of course..) you guys are infinitely more entertaining than the rest.

  11. allstoked13 says:
    (link)

    I’m in a .25 ppr, .5 ppfd league. Who would you want for the rest of the year? (The most upside)

    Moss
    Henderson
    Akers
    Kelley

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Kelley, easily

  12. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Send Fournette and Bell for buy low on Mixon? 0.5 ppr

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Hell yes

  13. Water boy says:
    (link)

    Hey MB! Crazy we are at week 3! Full ppr thinking of doing some trades maybe offering some 0-2 teams an offer

    My team

    QB Brady

    RBs: Dalvin Cook , CEH, Mark Ingram, Dobbins, mattison, Darrell Williams, James Robinson, Devonta Freeman

    WR: we start 3, can be up to 4 with flex: DeAndre Hopkins, Calvin Ridley, Edelman, Terry McLaurin, will Fuller, N’Keal Harry, Russell Gage

    TE I have jonnou smith & Goedart

    1.) offer my freeman + Will Fuller for mixon ?

    2.) offer my freeman + Terry McLaurin for mixon ?

    3.) offer my terry McLaurin for ekeler?

    4.) offer my dalvin cook to get Jonathan Taylor + DJ Moore ?

    Looking at my team should I stand pat or as there any kind of deal to pursue?

    Thanks man!

    • Water boy says:
      (link)

      Also thoughts on my McLaurin to get mixon, then flipping mixon to RB needy team to get diggs or Godwin ?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I gotta call you the trade man! Always looking for trades!

      Instead of Mixon, I’d target Taylor. You can try the Cook for JT and Moore as a convo starter but you’re asking a lot

  14. Matt says:
    (link)

    Hey MB

    As a CMC owner in PPR I was offered Mixon and Hunter Henry for my Waller. Should I take that? Or do you prefer Waller straight up for Jonathan Taylor?

    My team:
    Brady/Minshew
    CMC/Sanders/Hunt/Kelley/M Davis
    Hopkins/Woods/Boyd/Edelman/Watkins
    Waller/Fant

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      If you can get JT for Waller I will kiss your ring if I ever see you

      • Matt says:
        (link)

        Kiss my ring MB, somehow it was accepted!

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          On it

  15. JC says:
    (link)

    Context: 12 team, h2h, standard scoring league. 2-0 start. Yay. We play 1- QB, 2- RBs, 2- WRs, 1- Flex, 1- TE

    Squad:
    Dak
    Cook, Taylor
    Julio, Golladay
    Montgomery
    Higbee
    Bench: Kelley, Mattison, Cohen, AJ Green, Lazard, Slayton.

    1. Given my squad, I believe my focus should be on longer term value. Agree?
    2. I have both Taylor and Cook on byes week #7.
    3. I plan to drop Cohen. Claim Freeman or M Davis?
    4. Is Shenault an upgrade over one of my bench receivers?

    Thank you!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d claim Freeman, Davis might be useless by week 7. Freeman? We’ll see.

      I’d keep your bench receivers > Shenault

      • JC says:
        (link)

        Missed on Freeman.
        Drop Cohen for Gaskin, Shenault, Gage, Henderson or hold?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Gaskin

  16. Paul Zone says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Kelley for Diggs? Or maybe try McKinnon for Diggs? Diggs owner lost McCaffrey and did not get Freeman or Mike Davis…thinking he’s a little desperate at RB.

    Rb: Cook, Drake, Taylor, Murray, Mattison, Snell, Kelley, McKinnon
    Wr: Adams, OBJ, Green, Davis,
    TE: Andrews

    Little worried about my WR depth, with all of the injuries happening and bye weeks coming up OR would you just build depth from the Available players (which RB goes??), or I could just sit tight and stream a WR when needed…

    Preston Williams
    Mike Williams
    Tre-Quan Smith
    Pittman

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I highly doubt Kelley would get it done you might have to package both. But yes getting Diggs would be very good for your team

  17. southside dom says:
    (link)

    Standard scoring. 2-0 right now but lost CMC and am not feeling great about some of my WRs and certainly not my RBs. Any suggested trades I should pursue?

    Maybe Julio for Jonathan Taylor or Josh Jacobs? Juju for James Robinson? Other ideas?

    Squad:
    QB – Josh Allen
    WRs – Julio, Terry McLaurin, Juju, Will Fuller, Marvin Jones, Russell Gage
    RBs – CMC (IR), Josh Kelley, JK Dobbins, Myles Gaskin, James White, Nyheim Hines, Chase Edmonds
    TE – Hurst

    Hopefully one or more of the RB lotto’s hit soon. Thanks for the advice

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I like the Julio for JT idea. Juju for Robinson seems realistic as well. That’s a good place to start

  18. Kcc26 says:
    (link)

    My team (12 teams):

    WR: Kupp, AJ Brown (if/when healthy), Devante Parker
    RB/FLEX: Chubb, Drake, Montgomery

    Bench: Antonio Gibson, ny’heim Hines, s. Watkins, shenault, Lazard

    WR production has been crushing me. Guy who lost mccaffery has pretty good receiver depth, not much to replace CMC. His WR are: Lockett, Diggs, Godwin, Will Fuller, Harry, AJ green.

    If you were me, see you trying to do a RB for WR swap with this owner? What would you offer?

    Thanks!!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d see if Montgomery and Gibson can get you Diggs

  19. Chet says:
    (link)

    Hey, MB!

    Is DJ Moore, Joshua Kelley, and Mike Davis too much to give up for Jonathan Taylor? The other owner has Akler and McCaffrey.

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d do it for JT

      • Chet says:
        (link)

        Thanks, MB! Another quick question: Why so down on Minshew at home vs Miami tomorrow? I’m leaning toward starting him over Rodgers in New Orleans.

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          I moved him up to low end QB1

  20. William Trill Cauley-Stein says:
    (link)

    MB! I hope you are doing well. Could you please help me out this week? I am in a ten team .5 PPR league. We do have big play bonuses in my league. Can you help me figure out who to start for week 3? I really do appreciate it.

    QB- D. Prescott OR Tannehill

    RB- M. Sanders OR Joshua Kelley OR Montgomery?

    RB2- J. Taylor OR L. Fournette OR Montgomery?

    WR1- M. Thomas (OUT) OR John Brown OR Marquise Brown?

    WR2- M. Evans OR Marquise Brown OR John Brown?

    Flex- Fournette OR Marquise Brown OR J. Taylor OR Fant OR Jonnu Smith OR Joshua Kelley OR John Brown OR Montgomery

    TE- Fant OR J. Jonnu?

    K- Zuerlein

    D- Tennessee

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Trilly!

      Prescott, Sanders, Taylor, Marquise, Evans, Kelley, Jonnu

      • William Trill Cauley-Stein says:
        (link)

        What are your thoughts on Fournette?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          I think he’s overvalued

  21. miles proudfoot says:
    (link)

    Is Brady a must keep in 12 team redrafts? What do you see for him the rest of the season? Tannehill, Roethlisberger, Goff, Burrow are on the wire. Time to make a change, or perhaps drop Harry or Tate to carry a 2nd QB which I normally wouldn’t do. Thank you!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Drop Brady for Burrow. He’s not our father’s Brady anymore

  22. toolshed says:
    (link)

    So I lost barkley. I had the 8th waiver claim and got henderson. Should I be excited? He was the 3rd rb on my priority list. I got somebody but is this a situation that is gojng to cost me more trouble than its worth or does he have a legitimate chance to be somebody I can use in my lineup? Thx

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I think he’ll be useful in the passing game at worst so you can be mildly delighted.

  23. Last one out of liberty city says:
    (link)

    I’m in a dynasty league where we can keep up to 4 players.

    I was offered terry mclaurin, obj, and Russell Wilson for Julio and Freeman

    Would you make that deal ?

    My roster is
    Qb – brees or stafford
    Rb – zeke
    Rb – Aaron Jones
    Wr – Julio
    Wr – devante Parker
    Te – kittle
    Bench – josh Kelly, Zach moss, freeman, cooks

    Thanks
