Welcome back, my lovelies, to this week’s rendition of Hit It or Quit It. Hopefully, this week’s article finds you with your MCL’s, ankles, knees, toes, and elbows intact and where they are supposed to be, unlike the poor bastards on many of our rosters this past weekend. OUCH! Somehow, yours truly managed to squeeze out a 5-1 record for my leagues this weekend, while starting the best of the worst, a few no names, and a couple of poor schmoes who happened to be working the grounds crew at Met Life Stadium (Thanks, Manuel! I needed that turnover!). Did I just get lucky? Right place, right time? Or is this week’s domination in my leagues an indication of my Fantasy Football genius? I’ll let you make the call… (Hint: It’s the latter). So, before the refs from last night’s Bears-9’ers game decide to flag me for excessive celebration, let’s get into this week’s slim pickin’s and outright grenades. Gentlemen, and a few ladies, I give you Hit It or Quit It: Week 3.

 
Jeremy Hill – Rushing 15 times for 74 yards, a TD, and adding another two catches for 22 yards, Hill certainly played a bigger part this week, than he did in week one. Sure, like the slutty blonde over the good girl, he was out-touched by Giovani Bernard 32-17, but averaged more yards per carry at 4.93 to Bernard’s 3.33. For now, Bernard appears to be the H.B.I.C, but, like a good side b***h, Hill could come sliding in, especially if ole Bernie can’t get it up…with his yards per carry, that is. Get your minds out of the gutter. That’s why Hill could be worth holding onto in 12-14 team leagues. So, do yourself a solid, down a few little blue pills of courage, and HIT IT.

 
Knile Davis – With Jamaal Charles going down early with a sprained ankle and thereby screwing me without buying me dinner first, Davis was automatically tossed into the every-down role to pick up the slack. He finished the game with 105 yards, two TD’s, and was targeted nine times in the pass. If Charles continues to have “performance issues” due to that ankle, then Davis could find himself in the RB1/2 slot against the Dolphins next week. So, minimize your BBW porn just long enough to snag him off waivers and HIT IT.

 
Delanie Walker – If you didn’t listen to Smokey this week in his post about Walker, then you lost out. Walker destroyed Dallas this week by securing 10 of 14 targets for 142 yards and a TD. Jake Locker apparently only had eyes for Walker and their bromance was the only consistent movement Tennessee could seem to muster. Despite the up and down offense, you’d be hard pressed to find a cheaper date than Walker who will put out for you on a weekly basis. So, throw caution to the wind, listen to Smokey and me, and HIT IT.

 
Andrew Hawkins – Hawkins has seen 22 targets in the past 2 games for the Browns and caught 6 of 12 targets for 70 yards in the Browns’ win over the Saints Sunday. Hawkins’ 21-yard run also set up the game winning field goal by Cundiff with 3 seconds left in the game. The multiple targets should alone, put Hawkins on your bae radar and he is definitely worth owning in PPR. If you don’t jump on this, I will! HIT IT.

 
Niles Paul – Filling in for the perpetually banged up Humpty Dumpty, uh, I mean, Jordan Reed, Paul was everything Reed should be, but isn’t. He caught 8 passes for 99 yards and a TD and was running all over the open field like a naked hippie chick on peyote at a Grateful Dead concert. He is a decent TE1 option for as long as Reed is out, which, by history we know will be, um, say, ALWAYS! Paul is a sure thing. So drop your loyalty to Reed and make Paul your weekly hole to fill and HIT IT.

 
Kirk Cousins – Okay, first of all, if you drafted RGIII as your starter, you deserve everything that is happening to your roster right now. Seriously, Stevie Wonder could’ve seen an RGIII injury coming! Ok, now that that is off my chest, I can throw Cousins out there. When RGIII went down, Cousins came in and completed 22 of 33 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns. He was not intercepted once. He appears to be a better fit for the Jay Gruden offense, but the powers that be have been tight lipped about making that fact public yet. It does not take a genius to see that Cousins outplayed and out commanded RGIII and with Griffin now out for, what looks like the season, Cousins is a solid QB2 pick. So, redeem yourself for that grenade of an RGIII pick in the 3rd round of your draft and make Cousins your HIT IT.

 
Matt Cassel – QB – Minnesota – Intercepted 4 times against the Patriots…4 times. 19-36 on pass attempts and one TD. Needless to say Cassel wins the “dog turd of the week award.” I am so glad I did not draft this dud. Poor decisions and the Vikings sheer inability to run the football made this a circle jerk gone wrong. There is not much else to say other than just walk away and QUIT IT.

 
Victor Cruz – Cruz absolutely killed me this week. He added 3 more drops this week and is up to 5 on the season going into week 3. He managed to secure just 5 of 10 targets and brought me a measly 50 yards. His stone hands problems make for some difficult lovin’. I may hold onto him for one more week, but as his fantasy draw drops, so may he from my already tissue paper thin roster. Women don’t like a man who is bad with his hands. He gets one more chance from me to change his ways and then he will be a QUIT IT.

 
Torrey Smith – WR – Baltimore – Smith is one game away from appearing on the side of a milk carton. Was he even there in the Week 2 matchup with the Steelers, or was that Tori Spelling? At this point, I think she may get more looks from Flacco than Smith did. He secured just 1 of 3 targets for 10 yards, drew a 23-yard penalty, and then was apparently abducted by aliens. He is presently looking at four grabs for 60 yards over these first two weeks of the season. This absence has some fantasy owners wondering if last season’s 1,128 yards was some kind of fluke. Although he may still have some long-term WR2 upside, you may want to free up your rosters for someone who would be guaranteed to produce more than Smith, someone like, say, the aforementioned Tori Spelling. It’s your call, but at this point, I would probably QUIT IT.

 

So, there you have it, my lovelies. As always, love me, hate me, whatever, I am still the one with the writer’s credit. Follow me on twitter for all of my wonderful musings on the world of Fantasy sports and life in general. Until next week, remember, the Fantasy Gods are fickle, boobs, no matter how spectacular do not impact sports knowledge, and a girl can and will kick ass in a fantasy football league full of men.

  1. Nice article, the Victor Cruz drops are especially upsetting.

    is Toby Gerhart a QUIT IT after how bad the Jacksonville D looks?

      @Chris C: I’m kind of stuck there myself as I own Toby in a few leagues. It’s still too early to tell. I’m gonna hang onto him a little longer and hope for the best. I’m thinking Toby may be on the Quit it list soon though if Jacksonville can’t do something soon.

    PPR-Need to choose 6 this week to start among Roddy White, Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, TY Hilton, Alshon, James Jones, Woodhead, Knile Davis. 4 WR and 2 flex. Which two would you bench?

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:

      @jim: Everyone except Hilton (groin injury) and Woodhead.

    I am still holding pierce and forsett, but now I had Charles go down on me. Davis is out there, but who do I drop? Pierce, Forsett, Cruz, or Tannehill? Or do I just play Pierce instead of Charles?

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: I’d go Pierce instead of Charles. If you had to drop one from the above list, I’d say Cruz, just based on his last 2 games. But I’d give him one more week before I did that. That’s what I’m doing with him.

    Great posts, but I’m trying to figure out if Grey lost a bet and this is really him? Nice work.

    • Hans says:

      Also, please rank

      Khiry, Brown, Ivory, Hill?

        @Hans:
        1. Khiry
        2. Hill
        3. Ivory
        4. Brown
        Of course, that list is subject to change at any given moment or as the mood strikes me hormonally.

      @Hans: Haha thanks! Grey may have lost a bet somewhere, but I assure you, I am all me.

  7. Khen says:

    Another great article keep it up, I got Hit It’s Antonio Gates and Darren Sproles but which one to play at the flex?

    I also currently have Reggie Bush as my RB2 maybe potentially bench him even though I expect him to do well against Green Bay finally.

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Khen: I’d go Sproles. He was unstoppable last week. Gates is also nursing an injured hammy. I wouldn’t bench Bush. Go with your gut on that one.

    offered a trade, Joique bell and cam newton for RG3 and Leveon bell? Id be getting J.bell and Cam

    • Chicken Dinner says:

      @Derek: Was RGIII your starter?

      • Derek says:
        (link)

        Yeah rg3 was my starter, this is also a keeper league and deep 16 teams

      • Jennifer

        Jennifer Warner says:
        (link)

        @Chicken Dinner: Hells no! I didn’t draft him in any of my 6 leagues. I wasn’t touching that with a ten foot pole! Even I knew better!

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Derek: Do it! Unload RGIII!

  9. Crazy old guy babbling in the corner says:

    AP+ Decker for Doug Martin + Colston. Which side you like? Selling too low on AP due to suspension risk? How realistic the risk?

    I am haggling to get a better WR than decker in the deal (Crabtree, Wallace, Floyd are his other options)…

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Crazy old guy babbling in the corner: Keep haggling. Crabtree, Wallace, and Floyd are better options. Who knows but I have a feeling the NFL is going to make a whipping boy (no pun intended) out of AP especially with the Rice mess and how bad Goodell looks for how he handled it. I expect the NFL to try to come down heavy on AP to make an example.

    Pick up Booby Rainey or Jeremy Hill?

      Bobby*** sorry

      @The great Zombino: LMFAO! Freud would’ve had a field day with that one! Go with Hill.

  11. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    AP/Marvin Jones or AJGreen/Sankey?

    • Chicken Dinner says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: Also, if I should hold, as an AP owner.

      My Michael Floyd for Wheaton/Asiata.

      My other WRs are Jordy/Cooks/Wallace

      PPR

    • JeF With 1 F says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: Id take A.J if you can move A.P. for a top player at this point…DO IT

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: AJ/Sankey. I’m an AP owner in multi leagues myself so I’m in the same boat. I also happen to own AJ and Sankey in those same leagues and that’s the route I’m taking. I’m not jerkin’ any knees with AP until we know definites about suspension and what not. He’s not a bad hold on the bench in deep leagues until we know what’s up.

    whos the better charger rb add in a standard lg? woodhead or brown?

  13. Ron says:

    .5PPR – Kelce or Baldwin ROS?

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Ron: I like Kelce. Reid realized after week 1 they needed to use him more.

  14. Guidedbyvoices says:

    Hey Jen….Just now I received an offer of Chris Johnson for AP.

    Non PPR.i also have Murray and Now Knile Davis.so?….

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Guidedbyvoices: Hmm, I think something may be up with that trade. I’d hold onto AP like I am and get as much use out of him as you can before things implode. You have enough backup there to cover your ass, so I’d pass on that trade.

  15. Guidedbyvoices says:
    (link)

    Also….10 tm PPR….give up Sproles/Wayne for A. Brown?

    Thnks.

    Hi Jennifer, welcome to RB nation! Who do you like better over the next few weeks, Kissing Cousins or Andy Baby Dalton?

    • Jennifer

      @Count de Monetball: Keep it in the family…Cousins.

  17. Clint says:

    What do you think of Walker’s breakout in terms of Kendall Wright’s value going ahead in a ppr league? If Walker’s legit it appears as though Kendall’s targets and ppr value just got a Antonio Brown-like crane kick to the face, didn’t it?

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:
      (link)

      @Clint: I agree. I own Walker and he’s going to be my starter. Hopefully he continues to have week’s like last week and can hold onto that go to position from Locker.

    I was offered Ridley/Cruz for my Edelman in a 10-team non-ppr…I’m leaning against it as I have plenty of RB depth & not much WR depth..what are your thoughts?

    • Jennifer

      Jennifer Warner says:

      @Nick: Id go for it if you’re comfortable with your depth.
