What are my rankings bona fidas? Well, there’s finishing in the FantasyPros Top-10 Draft Accuracy (7th Place) in 2017, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy (23rd Place) in 2017, Top-5 Draft Accuracy (3rd place) in 2016, Top-10 Weekly Accuracy (10th Place) in 2016, Top-25 Weekly Accuracy in 2015 (21st Place) and on average we’ve finished in the Top-10 Draft Accuracy (9th Overall) and the Top-20 Weekly Accuracy (18th Overall) for the past three years. I’d like to think we’re pretty good at this stuff…

What does the word bona fidas mean? According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, bo·na fi·des \ ˌbō-nə-ˈfī-ˌdēz , ÷ˈbō-nə-ˌfīdz \ means 1 : good faith : sincerity, 2 : the fact of being genuine —often plural in construction, 3 : evidence of one’s good faith or genuineness —often plural in construction, 4 : evidence of one’s qualifications or achievements —often plural in construction. On a separate note, I think it would make a great name for a cat.

What’s my ranking process? I’ve actually written about this in the past, and instead of working hard for new and enlightening content, I have chosen the more efficient (lazy, ahem) method and dropping in a link to that post here. Honestly, my process hasn’t changed much at all (the ole “don’t fix what ain’t broke” proverb comes to mind) and so my “A Day in the Life of a Fantasy Football Ranker” story still remains relevant to this day. (The TL;DR is: I’m ghetto as fudge. Well, I mean the other “f” word, but I’m hungry.)

How should I use your rankings? The same way your mother does. Which actually makes no sense. (Unless your mother is in the running to always finish top-3 in your Fantasy Football league. And if that’s the case, say hello to her for me.)

    Trade for Kenny Golladay and give Jo Howard in PPR?

  2. Dylan says:

    yes! I traded AP for gollday Week 4!

    I have a couple wr off this week so I added rogers thinking that hilton would be out. Hilton practiced today and looks like he will play. Do I stick with rogers or add trequan smith or Meredith since ginn may be out. Or kearse, anderson since enunwa is out?. . Last option is albert wilson. Brockweiler starting this week. .5 ppr. I need 1 wr. Thanks

      Jay says:

      @Scott: I don’t mind trying for Trequan, but I think Rogers has the safer baseline. Though, with half PPR, Kearse is interesting… sorry, hedging out loud. Thinking just Rogers…

  4. Diro says:

    I was offered Julio and Gronk for my Thielen, Kittle, K Johnson and C Ridley? I don’t love it, but I want Gronk

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Diro: Yeah, do it. I’m a little reluctant like you are, but love consolidating talent in this case.

  5. Better Call Limehouse says:

    best ROS order of:
    hamster (skittles has a groin thing), mostert, j.will (GB), gore, booker, richard?
    PPR.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Better Call Limehouse: Hmm, that order, but Gore up a couple, Mostert behind Will. I’m kinda at a loss where to fit in Booker… I like him for what he is, but I’ll just keep hands off.

  6. Russowl says:
    (link)

    Standard non ppr with 10 pt bonus @ 100 Rushing and receiving
    Need 2 flexes

    Alshon Jeffery, Golladay, josh Gordon, Lindsay, or Drake

    with the 10 point bonus at a hundred yards I’m leaning Jeffrey and golladay

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Russowl: Yeah, I agree there.

  7. Chris says:
    (link)

    Would you try and upgrade my TE position (I already have O.J Howard) to receive Olson while giving up Jordan Howard has a sell high?

    Is this a fair trade in PPR or I should hold into Howard

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I think it’s kinda fair, but I would rather have Howard.

  8. Bruhwuh says:
    (link)

    Should i drop G Swaim for J Doyle? .5 ppr. Thanks again!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bruhwuh: Yeah, that’s fine.

  9. Comatose says:
    (link)

    Just got offered Edelman for Hyde. I’m hesitant because I’ll be losing James Conner at some point. The other owner is stacked at WR and also has Josh Gordon on his bench. Thoughts?

    QB Cam
    RB Mixon
    RB Conner
    WR AB
    WR Thomas
    WR Demariyus
    TE Reed
    Flex Collins
    Flex Hyde
    BN Drake
    John Brown
    Gore
    Malcom Brown
    Njoku

    • Comatose says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: .5 PPR

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: Yeah, I’m hesitant too. I think your WR’s are okay enough to hold here.

  10. Mike says:
    (link)

    I give up D.Johnson and get Gronk. Would you do it in PPR?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I think I’d hold, but it’s super close. I think close enough if you think this wholly upgrades your team for the playoffs and have the depth to cover.

  11. Benny says:
    (link)

    I have been offered several trades from different owners for Michael Thomas. Which of the offers below do you like and which do you hate?

    Beckham and Will Fuller for Thomas
    Mixon and Baldwin for Thomas and John Brown
    Juju and Boyd for Thomas and John Brown
    Cooks and Coleman for Thomas

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Benny: Like, Meh, Meh, Like.

    Another year another struggle! I have a couple of questions:

    1. Would you drop either of my QBs – Stafford or Russ – for Winston? Stafford seems steady but even with 3 WRs to throw to his season best has been 23 points, in week 2. I don’t want to give up on Russ yet, I admit. Is Winston more than a streamer?

    2. I’d rather not play Bears DST this week. But I don’t want to drop them because of their coming matchups. Who would you drop to stream either ARI or BUF? I was intrigued by you having Buffalo so low.

    Team and league below with players listed in alphabetical order by position.
    ESPN 10-team standard h2h redraft (QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-FLEX-TE-DST-K)

    QB: Stafford, Wilson
    RB: A.Jones, Barkley, Gore, Lindsey, Michel, 
    WR: Boyd, Evans, Fuller, Gabriel, Ridley, Thomas
    TE: Ertz
    DST: Bears
    K: Elliott

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joey Real Football: The struggle never ends!

      Yeah, I would want Winston over Stafford, but I don’t think it’s a move you should feel pressured to do. I think ARI, not digging Buf this week.

  13. Joey Real Football says:
    (link)

    Weird. Tried to post comment earlier but it didn’t post. Just in case it doesn’t ever show up, would you drop Stafford or Russ Wilson to roster Jameis ROS? (Apologies if it does show up)

  14. Big W says:

    What’s up, Jay!?!

    In a half PPR… who get’s the start at flex? Marlon Mack or Chester Rogers?

    Thanks!

    Big W

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Big W: What up! I think Mack right now.

  15. Mike says:
    (link)

    Smallwood this week and ROS over Dion Lewis?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Yes. But it’s close to me.

  16. Oliver says:
    (link)

    Jay! I miss your advice, though your folks are good too. You are the man, though, so I am putting these start/sit questions to you:

    1. Jordan Howard or AP?
    2. Luck or Trubisky?
    3. John Brown or DeSean Jackson?
    4. Trey Burton or Austin Hooper?

    I feel like I have the answers myself, but your expert voice always puts my mind at ease.

    Thanks, man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oliver: Thanks Oliver! Life just got lightened a bit so I can concentrate on the site a bit more, so expect me not to be MIA as much!

      I’d say Hoard, Luck, Brown, and ooo, tough one. Burton.

      Thanks for the kind words!

  17. Big W says:

    Where the heck is Jay??? @gray @rudy …we got questions, y’all!

    • Oliver says:
      (link)

      @Big W: Perhaps someone bought him too many bourbons.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Big W: I’m back! Really tough two weeks for me, but clear schedule for the time being! Thanks for everyone’s patience! (Bourbons were also invovled lol)

    12 team ppr looking to improve my team 2rbs, 3 wrs, Flex
    P. Mahomes Bench Watkins, cubb, Fournette and Newton
    Elliott
    Hyde
    Evans
    Robinson

    Would you trade Cam Newton for a WR? I have been offered A. Jefferys. He also has Cooks, Hill and Allen. What is fair

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bluety: I think that Newton trade is fair. I think you could get more in a vacuum, but I’m sure everyone looks at your team and sees Mahomes and knows that Newton has less value for you. I’d go for it.

    Where should Tavecchio be ranked among kickers?

      @William Hung: Hey Will! I have him smack dab in the middle right now.

    I need some advice, should I drop MVS from GB for T. Smith from NO, and pick up T. Smith in another league for M. Davis from Sea…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @clokwerc: I’d hold on the first, but the second one I would probably do.

  21. Dan says:

    Keeper league. Guys trying to get one of Engram or Njoku, both 13th and 15th rounders next year. Either worth a 9th round value on Aaron Jones?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dan: Eh, maybe Engram, but I like Jones here.

  22. Mac Hoover says:

    I have a QB dilemma. Do I start K.Cousins or J.Goff?

  23. Slim says:
    (link)

    I’ve got aj, thielen, and brown, and golladay. Standard league. Thin on top end rb talent obviously. Conner, breida, Kerryon, Chubb, both freemans, ito, Mack.
    Starting luck at qb
    We run two flex.
    Is a dalton, Kerryon, Watkins for jameis, Richard, ty or Baldwin (my pick) worth it for me?
    Had an offer of golladay for ap I could revisit after to hold me over until one of my other young guys hopefully take charge.
    Thoughts?
    Thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Slim: Yeah, I like both, but in this regard, I might start small and see what that nets as we get closer to playoffs. So I like the Golly for AP deal first.

  24. Ron says:
    (link)

    Welcome back Jay! Hope all is well.

    I need some serious help here. I’m 2-4 and last place gets kicked out of the league. It’s standard points redraft.

    Give: Chubb and Crabtree
    Get: Coleman and JuJu

    My other RB are David Johnson, Howard, Mack, Carson and Miller (Need to drop 1 as well for a legal roster – Carson or Miller???)

    My other WR are M. Thomas, D. Adams, Golladay, Baldwin, D. Thomas

    What should I do?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ron: Thanks Ron! I like this deal. Go for it and good luck!

  25. Mike says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay how close is Luck to Dalton? I own both and Dalton is my only drop to get a D so I can bench Bears, do not want to drop them

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Sorta close. I wouldn’t call it a coinflip, but they are in range to where you can pick either. I am okay dropping Dalton as a roster saving move here though.
