That pretty much summed up Thursday night’s game.

The final score score was 36-7 and it wasn’t even that close. The Dolphins’ one successful drive was the first one of the second half. It was good to see some fight, although I suspect that head coach Dan Campbell went all Mick Foley on some fools at halftime.

It was cute to see Miami come into this game with some confidence after dispatching of two Arena-league teams. The Dolphins have talent (I picked them to appear in the Super Bowl). Doh! But… you can’t be a serious contender when you have a fight song like this

Ryan Tannehill – That’s what it looks like when you take a wide receiver and put him at quarterback. Mike Sherman must have lost a bet at the poker table. That’s the only way I can make sense of the Donald Trump phenomenon as well. Tannehill finished the night 28/44 for 300 yards and 2 interceptions.

Lamar Miller – It is almost Halloween, so maybe Joe Philbin was wearing a Dan Campbell mask on the Miami sideline. How else can you explain the 9 carries for 15 yards and 5 receptions for 19 yards? Luckily for fantasy owners, he was able to punch in a goal line carry for a touchdown.

Jarvis Landry – 6 receptions for 71 yards. A decent day, considering Malcolm Butler shadowed him all night long and Tannehill is his Dolphins quarterback.

Rishard Matthews – see Jarvis Landry. Minus the Malcolm Butler shadowing part.

Jordan Cameron – Does he have two first names or two last names? My head is spinning. I’m sure his head is always spinning. 2 catches for 34 yards and 0 concussions.

Tom Brady – Love him or hate him, you gotta respect him. The guy is a surgeon. 26/38 356 yards with 4 touchdowns.

LeGarrette Blount – Got the start and finished with 17 carries for 72 yards. He is such a plodder, but when he gets a head of steam, he’s a freaking locomotive. Unfortunately, he’s one of the worst short yardage backs I’ve ever seen. So strange. Anyways, it looks like Blount will play if the opposing team is soft up front or has a ferocious pass rush.

Dion Lewis – 5 carries for 19 yards but 6 receptions for 93 yards with a touchdown. Freaking matchup nightmare. The Dolphins put their best cornerback on him when he split out wide. His elusiveness is Barry Sanders-esque. I’m not saying he’s Barry Sanders. No one will ever be, but Lewis is close.

Rob Gronkowski – Gronk SMASH! He smashes everything…if you know what I mean. 6 receptions 113 yards with a touchdown.

Julian Edelman – 7 receptions for 81 yards with 2 touchdowns. I guess moving to LA to be Brady’s [email protected]#!* finally paid off huh? Edelman had a quiet first half and did all of his damage when the game was out of hand.

Brandon LaFell – Didn’t drop any passes this week. Woohoo!!! Once he gets into the groove, this Patriots offense is going to be scary.

Danny Amendola – 1 catch for 11 yards. All you suckers that spent your FAAB on him. It’s okay, he was a good pickup but he’s going to be very inconsistent. You didn’t hear about him moving to LA to be Brady’s [email protected]#% did you?

I was filling in for Jay tonight. Your regularly scheduled awesomeness will return next week. Send some love Jay’s way, as he had some things to take care of…

          @Zandy: This is probably blasphemous, but I actually prefer ARob over DT. More about situation. So, if you really want AJ, then I guess I’d do Gore/Hilton/DT for Lacy/AJ

  7. Rice says:

    Looking ahead to my week 9 Carson Palmer bye… who is the better pickup?

    Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jax @ NYJ)

    or

    Marcus Mariota (Ten @ NO)

    • Rice says:
      (link)

      @Rice: McCown @ CIN is also an option I guess

    • Son says:

      @Rice: Think you have to roll with Fitzpatrick at home.

    10-team dynasty, standard scoring w/ 6-pt pass TD. Won the league last year but mid-pack now (in line to make playoffs as a low seed) and lost Foster, and I’d say there are 3 teams that are clearly better positioned than me. Before Foster went down an owner had expressed an interest in essentially dealing me Gurley for Foster + Megatron.

    QB – Roethlisberger, Ryan
    RB – Forte, Hill, Duke Johnson, Foster (IR), Randle
    WR – Megatron, Dez, K. Allen, Hurns, Marvin Jones, DGB
    TE – Graham, Gates
    DST – SEA, CIN (gets Cle during SEA’s wk 9 bye)

    Question is, should I revisit that deal with Forte + Megatron for Gurley? I feel like it doesn’t make me much worse this year and I probably wasn’t going to win the league anyway, and positions me better going forward. Also, FWIW, seems there are always decent WR available on the wire in this league.

    • Son says:

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d do it. Forte and Megatron are on their last legs. When you can acquire a talent like Gurley, especially at the RB position, I think you gotta do it. I am always an advocate of accumulating superstars.

    What are you thoughts on OBJ ROS? Should we be weary of his hamstrings?
    Have a chance to acquire him a .5 PPR league.

    • Son says:
      (link)

      @IV: it all depends on the cost to acquire. OBJ is a baller. Personally, I hate his hair so I had to trade him.

    Hey Bud, I’m looking to drop J Randle in my 10-team standard scoring (non-ppr) league…my roster for week 8 is below..mind you, I will not be carrying 3QB & 3TE after this week…I just wanted to hold Peyton 1 more week to see how he does out of the bye before dropping a QB & TE to waivers (L Green to be dropped once Gates back)

    QB-Stafford
    RB- AP/Duke J
    WR-Ty/Amari/Davante Adams
    Flex-L Green
    TE-Bennett
    K-Tucker
    D-STL
    Bench- D Murray (bye), Garcon (bye), Taylor (bye), P Manning, Gates (injured) & dropping J Randle

    waiver options
    RB- D Cobb, Andrews, McCluster, K Robinson, Darkwa, David Johnson & Sproles
    WR- Marvin Jones, Tate, T Austin, Nate Washington, Lockett, Roddy, Desean Jax, T Smith, R Woods, Baldwin, Aiken & Wheaton

    If D Adams does not play, then I obviously have to go for a WR (thinking Marvin Jones)…however at the same time my RB depth is also putrid but the RB waiver options not so good…what do you think?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I like Nate Washington, Marvin Jones, and R Woods for WR. At RB, I like Andrews, D Johnson, and Cobb

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Son: are those players listed in order of desire? I’d think M Jones would be the pickup since I might need to plug him in for D Adams….than either Cobb or D Johnson next week when I can drop a QB and/or TE… right?

        • Son says:
          (link)

          @Nick: I like m jones best but Nate not too far behind. I’d put d Johnson in front of Cobb
