agent_smith

Mr. Anderson. Welcome back. We missed you. This week I tried to make things a bit more difficult by limiting myself to just the Sunday early games from which to choose. The unsurprisingly reality was that it was still quite easy to cobble together a lineup that would beat just about any team it was matched up against. Next week perhaps I will try using only players from the late games. This week’s crew combined for 180.1 points and includes one player that will undoubtedly be the top waiver wire pickup this week.

POS Name Points Owned
QB Alex Smith 27.6 27%
RB DeAngelo Williams 13 21%
RB Taiwan Jones 12.9 1%
WR Tavon Austin 23.9 54%
WR Malcom Floyd 23.2 18%
TE Benjamin Watson 25.2 50%
FL Jacob Tamme 21.3 5%
K Mike Nugent 13 6%
DST Houston 20 69%

Alex Smith – With 139 fantasy points, Smith is currently in the top ten among quarterbacks, ahead of names such as Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco. Even though he only threw for 145 yards, he managed 2 touchdowns and a 97.9 QBR. He even ran for 78 yards. On the season he is averaging 245 yards passing per game. I know he isn’t sexy, but is he better than your current QB? If so, you should consider making Agent Smith your guy.

DeAngelo Williams – Ding. Ding. That’s Le’Veon ringing the bell on his season. For him, schools out for summer. For Steve Smith it might be out forever. For the Bell owners that did not handcuff him with DeAngelo Williams, you have only yourself to blame. Unless you have the number one waiver claim, you stand no chance at him. In the first two games of the season while Le’Veon was serving his suspension Williams rushed for 204 yards and scored 3 touchdowns. After replacing Bell following his injury last week, he rushed for 71 yards on 9 attempts. Williams is a must own. The only thing I’m not sure of is whether he looks more like Venus or Serena.

Taiwan Jones – Where did this guy come from. He was made in Taiwan. Ha! You get it. If you are in the 1% that own Jones and are not in a 20-team league with large rosters, please invite me to join your league next season. He had a 59-yard touchdown reception and that is the only reason he made this list. Like most of the stuff that comes from Taiwan, he’s junk.

Tavon Austin – Tavon’s week 4 performance earned him a spotlight in week 5’s Stats Machine post. In that post I said I’d pass on Austin. The following week he had 2 receptions for 6 yards. While one of those catches was a touchdown, that’s hardly a good day. The game after that he had 4 catches for 43 yards. Another dud. This past week he had another 4 catches, but for this time for 98 yards and a touchdown. He also, somehow, managed a rushing touchdown. Much to the chagrin of Gurley owners. I still have no interest in Tavon. On the season he is averaging 5.4 targets, 3.4 receptions and 40.7 yards per game. If those stats excite you it clearly doesn’t take much.

Malcom Floyd – Malcom in the middle of San Diego rewarded the few owners that started him with 92 yards and 2 touchdowns. If you were one of those owners, I’m not sure if I should congratulate you or laugh at you. Coming into last week Floyd was averaging 4.85 targets, 2.42 targets and 45.28 yards per game. He only had one touchdown in those first seven games. Starting him would have been ill advised. Moving forward I’d say the same.

Benjamin Watson – In the last three weeks Watson has been a very productive tight end. During that three game span he has averaged 7 receptions for 111 yards, scoring a touchdown in two of those games. He has the 6th most fantasy points amongst tight ends and currently has more points than Jimmy Graham, the player he replaced. I’m still not sold on Watson. Last week’s Saints game was such an offensive affair that I think even I could have put up a decent amount of points had I been in the game. I’m happy to say that I did pick him last week as one of my starts of the week, but moving forward I can’t make the same recommendation.

Jacob Tamme – Tamme has been hit or miss this season. And by that I mean he has had two good games and five not so good games. This past week he caught 10 of 12 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown. Great game, belongs on the waiver wire.

There you have it. Even a team constructed of only players found on the waiver wire that played in Sunday’s early games is strong enough to rival nearly any team in its path. If only C.J. Anderson could have made this list! Mr. Anderson

      @Blint: Ebron, but it’s really a coin flip. I wouldn’t commit to either one for the rest of the season. It would be a weekly matchup based decision…

    Hey bud, I’m very frustrated with FAAB… I get that its fair for everyone but there is no rhyme or reason to my leaguemates bids! Anyways, I’m down to 27$/100 but with all the hot claims this week, the other teams have come down in budget $…I lost out on Aiken (someone bid $35, I bid $11) & obviously all other touted waiver options..I did get Joique for $2 & Cobb/Tate for nothing to fill out my bench but need to drop one of them for Tucker’s bye…

    QB-Taylor
    RB-AP/DeMarco
    WR-Ty/Amari/Garcon
    TE-Bennett
    Flex-Gates
    K-Tucker
    D-STL
    Bench-D Adams, Duke J, Peyton, J Bell, Tate, Cobb

    Its a 10-team standard scoring. Do you agree that Cobb is probably the drop since we do not know what we will get out of Titan offense? (not that Lions offense is any better but they are vets) & which K of these 5 are you taking for week 9 fill-in for Tucker? Sturgis, Crosby, Lambo, Nugent or Folk?

    • Mike C says:
      (link)

      @Nick:

      Ben Tate is the drop…hands down. He hasn’t shown anything in the last 2 years & was chilling at home the last year eating cheesy poofs & playing COD. Cobb isn’t in the best of shape either, but has a far superior path to consistent production. Sturgis…when in doubt, take the kicker that’s indoors

      • Nick says:

        @Mike C: its not Ben Tate, who would own him?! haha…

              @Nick: Agreed…

      @Nick: What up Nick! I’m actually a big fan of FAAB. I like it because it gives everyone a chance at a guy. And figuring out how much to bid makes it a game within a game. Someone bid 98 of 100 on DeAngelo Williams. The other week I bid 51 for Charcandrick West. I actually had a bid of 50 and changed it at the last moment to 51 because I thought someone else might bid 50 and I was low on the tie breaker. I was right. Best dollar I’ve spent this season. I takes a few weeks to have an idea how much another team is going to bid. How much they have left and how badly they need the player help drive how much they will bid. I just got Aiken for $2. Since he’s on a bye this week everyone overlooked him!

      The drop if Tate or Cobb. Personally I’d probably drop Tate. He hasn’t done squat this season. At least nothing you can’t replace with someone else on the waiver wire. And you might even be able to get him back next week. Cobb is an unknown. And considering no one has a hold on the RB spot in Tennessee, you’ve got a guy with a shot at it. It’s not much of a gig, but it’s something. So I’m taking the small opportunity provided by Cobb over the mediocre output that Tate is spitting out…

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @malamoney: Thanks Malamoney! I agree that FAAB is fair for all but it has just been frustrating since its our 1st year so no insight into opponents moves…I agree that Tate is the drop over Cobb, the only reason I grabbed Tate from waivers for $0 was because Calvin got hurt but with the bye, he might be back before Tate can make an impact, if that’s possible right now for Detroit, haha…

        Someone in this 10-teamer grabbed Andrews & Sankey this morning after waivers cleared so I’m happy I put the $0 in for Cobb as I’m sure they would have scooped him instead of Sankey &/or Andrews…

        A few interesting drops to waivers today after FAAB took place… Crowell, Starks, Wallace, A Morris & Stevie Johnson all on waivers…I’m most surprised by the last guy there as K Allen is done for year…would you consider any of them over my bench guys?

        Also you did not pick a kicker..do you prefer (1) Sturgis indoors at Dallas, (2) Lambo at home in SD vs. Chi, (3) Crosby @ Carolina or (4) Folk at home vs. Jags?

        • malamoney

          malamoney says:
          (link)

          @Nick: I like Stevie Johnson. Perhaps over Garcon, but I’d have to look closer. And maybe Alf over Joique…

          Lambo or Crosby. Flip a coin…

        • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
          (link)

          @Nick: sankey shouldn’t be owned in 20 teamers right now , that owner is lot newer to this than you are. i’m in 20 teamers. at least if sankey is owned in the 20 teamers there’s better backups out there. I’m not saying Ridley/Coleman/Cobb shouldn’t be owned.

  3. Mike C says:

    You don’t advise starting Malcm Floyd going forward? He plays on one of the most pass happy Os in all of pro sports, and Kee Allen just went down for the season. Sound advice…

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:
      (link)

      @Mike C: He’s worth owning, but I’m not just putting him out there. He’s a guy you evaluate on a weekly basis. Odds are you will have at least 2 wide receivers that are better options. His ownership has risen from about 18% to 32% in Yahoo! leagues. That’s a nice jump, owners aren’t running out to grab him. Stevie Johnson is the Charger you are looking for…

      • Mike C says:
        (link)

        @malamoney:
        People should be running out to grab him. With the Chargers struggling to run the ball & their D being one of the worst in the league, they’ll have to pass the ball excessively from here out. Stevie is a slot guy who will get you 5-7 catches for who cares yardage. Floyd will match those catches but with a lot more green between him & Phil. Floyd is a top 30 wr ROS which soundly places him into most starting lineups

          @Mike C: You like him over say John Brown?

            (link)

            @malamoney:
            That’s a really good comparison, but I like Smokey better. Even though he’s been dealing with ham sammy injuries to both legs this year, I like his floor better. There are games where Floyd will disappear because he’s not a great talent, where as Brown is pretty good at the game of professional football, the style of which popularized in ‘Merica

    Morning!! in 1 pt ppr, should i drop WR B LaFell to pick up K Aiken for ROS ?? Thanks

    • Mike C says:
      (link)

      @JohnnyBeGood:

      In ppr, Aiken has the slight edge. He’s the de facto #1 & Has a safe floor with a lot of 7/70 games in his future. Lafell has the higher ceiling, but the catches won’t be there consistently enough to put him ahead of Aiken

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:

      @JohnnyBeGood: Yes. I actually made that exact move in my personal league. And I got him for just $2 of my FAAB…

    1/2 PPR League, need to start 2 of L Miller, D Williams, D McFadden, D Woodhead, and D Freeman.

    • Mike C says:
      (link)

      @JBagKY:

      Freeman for sursies…I start that cat on his bye week on the off chance he gets me a td. The other is actually between Williams and….wait for it….Woodhead! Murray against Phila, blech. Miller in Buff, nope. Woodhead has a tasty matchup & the Bolts will be looking for production with him after losing Allen. That being said, I still like D-Will better based on the matchup & usage. Dude is gonna be a Clydesdale ROS & picked up where he left off last week, going over 100 total in slightly over 1/2 game

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:
      (link)

      @JBagKY: Freeman and Woodhead in PPR. I like Williams, but the Raiders defense has been stingy against the run only allowing 75.9 yards per game.

      • Mike C says:
        (link)

        @malamoney:
        I reeeeeeally like Woodhead, but you can’t advise sitting Williams. The Raiders have been stingy, but we’re talking about a cat that will play all 3 downs & have goaline looks on an explosive offense (last week doesn’t count lol). Use your Brain and take the floor of 20+ touches with Pinky Williams. See what I did there?

  6. Lex says:

    Hey man I need some advice…I’m in a 10 team standard scoring league I was offered Hillman Cooks and Amari Cooper for my Ingram and Randall Cobb….questions I’m asking myself….will CJ Anderson take away Points from Hillman like this last week, Can Hillman match Ingrams production cause he will basically take Ingrams spot….Cobb is not scoring any points but will that change or is it just a down year….Is cooks and Brees starting to click……lol all kinds of questions…what do u think?

    • CMUTimmah says:
      (link)

      @Lex: You’re giving up the best two players in that trade… don’t do it. Cobb will come around, Hillman is a huge step down from Ingram. And unless your desperate for an additional WR, this trade makes no sense at all.

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:
      (link)

      @Lex: I would not make that trade. I don’t trust the running back situation in Denver. So you’d be losing at RB. I’d prefer Cobb over Cooks and Cooper. Don’t let the Cooks owner sell you Cooks after his one good week of the season. He’s trying to sell high. I do like Cooper, but not at the expense of Ingram and Cobb who are surely starters on your squad…

      • Ralph Lifshitz

        Ralph Lifshitz says:
        (link)

        @malamoney: You’d take Cobb over Cooper? He’s been junk since week 3.

        • malamoney

          malamoney says:
          (link)

          @Ralph Lifshitz: Barely, but yes. Their targets, receptions and touchdowns are pretty much even. Cooper has more receiving yards, but I just think that Cobb will put up better numbers ROS. If I got stuck with Cooper I wouldn’t cry about it however…

          • @malamoney: @Ralph Lifshitz: I see Cooper as the only poss upgrade in this trade for the OP. At RB thats a huge hit Ingram vrs Hillman and Cooks is barely startable prob just bench fodder.

        • Mike C says:
          (link)

          @Ralph Lifshitz: don’t forget that Khiry is donsies. Ingram is gonna be bonkers ROS…talking top 5 here

            Ralph Lifshitz says:
            (link)

            @Mike C: I look at it this way Cooks is probably even to Cobb. He’s actually been better, but Cobb is getting free passes all over the place. So the trade is Cooper and Hillman for Ingram.. Ronnie’s getting touches he had 19 last week in a game that was over in the first half, and quite frankly the Broncos need him to score points.

            So there’s two things at play 1. His WR’s are Marshall, Evans, and Cobb there’s a whole lot of uncertainty there. 2. He’s going to need cover for Ingram during the bye week. Hillman’s not going away, he’s going to continue seeing 15-20 touches a week and RZ work. It’s a bigger upgrade at WR then it is a downgrade at RB.

            • Mike C says:
              (link)

              @Ralph Lifshitz:

              I see your point, just not understanding your logic. Cobb has gotten a free pass because he’s had a bum shoulder. Finally released from the injury report, the arrow is pointing up on his season. Cooks has only had 2 really good games (compared to Cobb’s one) & still has his bye week coming up. Adams is finally healthy as well, freeing up Cobb from potential double teams & putting him back in the slot where he eats up yardage like I eat up my kid’s Halloweeen candy when they’re sleeping.

              I’m telling you guys, BUY INGRAM WHERE YOU CAN! There are so few true bell cows remaining & he’s one of them. The Broncos backfield is a crap shoot at best, never knowing who to start week to week. I’ll take 7 weeks of 20 plus carries & a bye week replacement from Ingram all day over maybe guessing which week is a good one to start Hillman

              • Ralph Lifshitz

                Ralph Lifshitz says:
                (link)

                @Mike C: Agree to disagree. I think replacing an underperforming Cobb with a young good WR outproducing him, and a good WR who’s best is yet to come out weighs the 3-5 points you’ll lose in the Hillman to Ingram switch.

                  (link)

                  @Ralph Lifshitz: I still want Cobb and Ingram. However, if you’re going to be starting both Cooks and Cooper, then the net gain over your existing starting lineup would then sway my opinion…

                • Mike C says:
                  (link)

                  @Ralph Lifshitz:
                  In your scenario he had Marshall, Evans & Cobb @ wr. Cooks is an upgrade over none of those, so he’s just depth…who cares . Even if Coop & Cobb is a wash, Ingram outweighs Hillman by sheer volume. No deal

                  • Ralph Lifshitz

                    Ralph Lifshitz says:
                    (link)

                    @Mike C: Cobb and Cooper not a wash at all. Cooks and Cobb a wash, fine. My issue is there’s a good chance he has a “good on paper” WR corps that’s fragile going forward. Marshall is hurt and who the hell is throwing him the ball, Evans is ehh, great talent sure but I’m not saying he’s more consistent than Cooper at this point, and Cobb is hurt and underperforming.

                    The Ingram vs. Hillman volume divide is smaller than you think. It’s pretty much a catch and a carry per game, based on the last four games. Spiller is going to take Robinson’s volume I wouldn’t be so sure it gives Ingram such an uptick.

                    With that said you make some great points.

    Considering starting Langford over Lacy this week based on matchup and Langford looked very elusive last weekend.

    Several questions, Who would you rather have ROS, Diggs or A Robinson. What about CJ2k or Jstewart? Also I have been offered CJ2k for John Brown in a 12 team standard league. I am hurting for RBs with Blount and Ivory as my top two and Hopkins, M Bryant, J Matthews as my other WRs. I am hesitant because I think Jstew may be better and could possibly acquire. Should I pull the trigger? Thanks again!

    • malamoney

      @Hometown Heroes: Damn! As much as I love Diggs, I’m gonna have to go with Robinson. But I do love me some Diggs.

      Johnson over Stewart. By a little. Each week they could possibly flip flop based on matchups.

      That’s a fair trade. I like Brown more, but if Blount and Ivory are you only two RBs, then you are in need…

    I got Polk, Malcolm Floyd, Jordan Matthews, and James Starks and I’m debating the usefulness of hanging on to any of them in a 10-team PPR.

    In a .5PPR league for 2016

    Arian Foster – 5th round or Kelvin Benjamin – 10th round?

      @Ron:

      Benjamin, not even close. Foster has a long road ahead of him…achilles injuries sap speed & he’s not a spring chicken

      @Ron: Benjamin. The ACL is an easy recovery and he’s already months in…

    What’s the story with David Cobb in TEN? Is he any good? Will he be a threat to Andrews?

      @Cram It: I don’t know too much about him. 5th round pick out of Minnesota. From what I gather he’s nothing spectacular, but then again neither is Sankey or Andrews. He will definitely be a threat to take over…

        @malamoney: sankey is done. mccluster has more standard even value than him. cobb apparently was best guy during camp. Andrews is best till they use Cobb of course, as Andrews has been best since that one good game Sankey had back in week 1.

    In my 14-team, non-ppr league, my team is clinging to a 3-5 record. After some injuries (and, let’s be honest, kind of a mediocre team to start with), my lineup has grown extremely patchy. I used a #1 waiver claim on DeAngelo this week, which is a godsend, but I could really use another reliable starter or two and, with only dregs available on waivers in a 14-team league, I’m looking to make a trade.

    I’m thinking of flipping Gronk for a RB and WR, since I can get by with Bennett as my TE. The first place team is thin at TE (and stacked everywhere else), so I’m hoping I might be able to entice him into a deal (esp since he’s a Pats fan!).

    The other owner starts some combination of Gurley, AP, CJ2K, Edelman, Hilton, and Martavis, but his current TE is Vernon Davis (just picked up). Any ideas for a pair of players I might be able to get for Gronk (I could potentially throw in someone else too)? Thanks!

    Roster:
    QB: Brady
    RB: DeAngelo, Mr. Anderson, Hyde, Riddick, Ellington
    WR: Moncrief, Adams, Wallace, Aiken, Woods
    TE: Gronk, Bennett

      @friar: If I’m him, I likely not upsetting the balance of my team by giving up players to get Gronk. After all, he’s in first without him already. And I’d be interested to see what Vernon Davis does in Denver.

      Gronk for AP is a fair trade though…

    Trade Amari Cooper and Matt Ryan for Rodgers?

    Start 2 WRs and Flex, other WRs are Odell, Dez, Hurns & Mike Floyd…

    • malamoney

      malamoney says:
      (link)

      @booya: Who are your other receivers?

      Odell, Dez and Hurns. You start Odell every week. There are no exceptions…

      • booya says:
        (link)

        @malamoney: Sorry for the confusion, I was saying I have Odell, Dez, Amari, Hurns & Floyd. Start 2 WR + flex.

        So the question is if I should trade Matt Ryan & Amari for Rodgers…thinking I should, right?

          @booya: It’s a fair deal…

    ok, manning had what i’m sure everybody would agree was a good game there, and let’s just see how close he isn’t to ending year as a top 15 guy. Only using guys expected to be starters (geno i’m not counting)
    1. standard leagues. right now a.smith (or mccown if he still counts as starter, same average) averages 17.5 per game, and those 2 are 15th place. peyton after his good game is still at 13.02 average, which puts him in 30th place (still, was that way 2 weeks ago too). So he’d now have to add only 61% more than his average across 9 more weeks to get there. So he is closer than the 65% increase he would’ve needed before. Has to average 20.98 in remaining games.

    2. 6 pt TD with 6 pt bonus at 300+ yards. flacco still 15th with 24.68 (so 15th has actually gotten about a half pt better in two weeks, making peyton’s even harder), peyton with 18.40 and 29th place. for Peyton to get to averaging that he’d have to get 29.564 per week for the next 9 weeks (+60.68% increase, down from +68% two weeks ago)

    3. 6 PT passing TD’s with.1 per completion, -.5 per sack against, -3 for picks, -2 for fumbles lost. 2/3/4 pt bonuses at 300/350/400 yards passing. tannehill 15th with 21.10, peyton 30th with 13.98. needs to average 23.638 over last 9 weeks to hit this (+69% better than previous 7 weeks of play, down from +100, so he’s making most progress here

    This is the hole Forehead has put himself into to end up as a top 15 QB in fantasy leagues, with being awful over 5/6 of the first 6 weeks, he can look good enough for everybody to agree he had a good game, and he’s still that far from ending year top 15.

      @Crapshoot Kershaw: Let’s say he doesn’t end up in the top 15. Do you think his ROS performance will be strong enough for someone to look back and say “I wish I had started him over the final 8/9 weeks of the season?
