Welcome back to the weekly streamer extravaganza.  Bye weeks are really catching stride with some key players so make sure to check out this article each week for some fill-ins.  Also there have been 12,642 injuries thus far so even if you aren’t in bye week hell, chances are your team is being ravaged by injuries.  Fantasy football really doesn’t make any sense, especially this season…

 

Collinsworth Creampie of the Week

chris-collinsworth-clap-and-clipboard-flip

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you, I was way too excited to watch Westworld on HBO and didn’t watch too much of the Pittsburgh slaughter fest.  I think that I made the right decision, Westworld is everything that it is hyped up to be.  That is where Twitter comes in handy.  With a quick one word search, I found that I am not the only person who is in awe of the weekly poetry that Collinsworth spews out on national television.

I learned that Collinsworth doesn’t know what a meme is.  He thinks a meme is any photograph on the internet.  People were also going crazy that Collinsworth apparently said that the Steelers were playing terrible despite having a 30+ point lead.  If I missed anything great please let me know in the comment section.  This week we have some easy targets as the Giants face the Packers in Lambeau.

I’m convinced Collinsworth is going to show up commando to give himself some room to breathe while watching Aaron Rodgers play football.  There is no telling how wild and abstract his love for Aaron Rodgers will be if he plays well.  Being the morally elite and straight laced guy that Collinsworth is, I think that he will have some choice words for Mr. Beckham Jr:

“Al, when you are a professional football player, you cannot pull these sorts of stunts when your team is trying to win a division.  Odell is costing his team yardage and creating negative headlines on a weekly basis and if I were Eli or McAdoo, I wouldn’t stand for it.  I really feel for Eli Manning, Al, what are you supposed to do when your star player is creating such a fuss?  I just wouldn’t throw to him anymore, you can’t encourage this behavior.”

 

Ryan Fitzpatrick, 34% Owned – Yes, I am telling you to stream the guy who has 9 interceptions in the past 2 games.  Pittsburgh is giving up an average of 317 yards per game through the air and history is pretty much repeating itself in Pittsburgh’s secondary after a rough 2015.  Pittsburgh’s offense is probably the best in the AFC so I could see the Jets playing catch up the entire second half as Antonio Brown makes Darrelle Revis look like Chris Conte.  Even if Fitzpatrick throws a couple interceptions, it doesn’t ruin you in fantasy football.  I would feel a lot better about this if Eric Decker was playing so I will give you another option if you don’t like this one.

Brian Hoyer, 12% Owned  Brian Hoyer can do good things against struggling defenses and there are few defenses that are struggling as much as the Indianapolis Colts defense.  Blake Bortles scored around 25 points against them last week and he didn’t even have to play catch up in the 4th quarter (although he did throw a late touchdown).  Hoyer threw for over 300 yards and 2 touchdowns for the 2nd consecutive week at home against the LionsBrian Hoyer is a really safe play if you are okay with getting 15-20 points and letting the rest of your roster do the heavy lifting in week 5.

DeAndre Washington 16%, Owned Dwayne Washington didn’t work out too well last week so why not try the other Washington?   I swear if this one doesn’t work out, I might not mention a running back in this article for the rest of the season, that is, until I forget that I wrote this.  Latavious Murray showed up to practice Wednesday in a walking boot and that is never a good sign, so stay dialed in to this situation if you are in need of running back help.  I’m aware that the Raiders are not too fond of running the ball but Washington is averaging 6.4 yards per carry through 4 games this season and could be on the verge of a breakout if he is given a feature role this Sunday.

Seth Roberts, 2% Owned – I’m going to stick with the Oakland Raiders offense here.  The Charger’s defense could be in complete chaos mode with Jason Verrett being injured.  Oakland loves to throw the ball and Roberts has scored a touchdown in consecutive weeks.  Anytime that you need a fill in, go with the guy who has the best chance to find the endzone.

Baltimore Ravens DST, 29% Owned – There really aren’t any great streaming matchups for defenses this week.  The Redskins can put up some points so we are just kind of hoping that Cousins has a bad game. If the Buffalo Bills are still available in your league, I would go that direction, but they are nearly 70 percent owned.

 

 

My twitter dot com can be found here, Be sure to follow me and leave a comment in the comment section.  I will see you next week, as long as the Cubs are still in the playoffs.  If the Cubs lose, I’m most likely done watching sports and will start blogging about Teen Mom and Keeping up With the Kardashians.  Or I might go the weird route and dress as a clown and hang out in wooded areas.

    I need a replacement for Ingram this week.

    I’m also out Allen Robinson and Drew Brees so I’m leaning towards playing the upside with DeAndre Washington rather than the known mediocre Matt Jones. Of the 2, who would you take in a .5ppr league?

      @fknboz: deandre Washington for sure. Good upside

    What do you think of Greenbay defense over Oakland or Washington?

      @RD: I like Green Bay the most

    Who you got ROS in half PPR: Antonio Gates or Julius Thomas?

    Thanks, keep up the good work!

    I would probably say Antonio gates, he’s the bigger redzone threat and river’s most trusted target

      @Unbreakable MB: Thanks man – one more for you: I’m in a 14 team PPR league so the waiver wire is pretty thin. I’m currently rolling Adam Humphries out as my 3rd WR – stick with him, Britt or hope for an increase in usage and pickup DGB?

        @JimmyJackJames: you’re welcome – this is a tough one. I like the potential of DGB, maybe not in 2016, it seems as if Adam Humpries is a built in fixture of the Bucs offense. My only worry here is Cameron Brste vulturing his targets but I think Humohries will be fine. Who’s on the wire?

        • JimmyJackJames says:

          @Unbreakable MB: It’s not pretty – upside guys like DGB and Perriman, name-only guys like V-Jax and Andre Johnson and aside from that, next best non-injured options are Kendall Wright or Coradelle Patterson. I’m leaning towards your view that Humphries is probably the best option, especially b/c he did play Denver last week. Humphries and Britt are currently on my roster, everyone else is a FA.

            @JimmyJackJames: eh, yeah probably. I want cordarelle Patterson to finally put it together so bad.

              @Unbreakable MB: agreed, he showed flashes last week and Minny tried to get him in space but let’s see him do it 3-4 games in a row.

    In a 12-team standard, I have Luck, Miller/Gore/Crowell/Deangelo/Howard/Deandre Washington, Julio/Evans/Cobb/Enunwa; Julius/Hunter H; Bengals; Mack, Kwon/Zach Brown, Tony Jefferson. We start 2RB/2WR/1TE/1Flex/1 Each IDP. First, who do I drop for a kicker? Second, with who is left after I drop one, do I swap out any remaining for Rashad Jennings, Smallwood, James White, Chris Hogan, Ebron, Gates, Richard Rogers. Thanks!

      @Randy: I’d drop enunwa for a kicker and hang tight after that. Nice roster

    What say you on a block buster?

    Matt forte, Isaiah Crowell, devante Parker, Robert woods

    For

    Amari cooper, Thomas Rawls, Terrance west, tevin Coleman…

    I own Dixon, Michael and freeman. Do you think I own the starters or no? I figured if I bring in west coleman and Rawls I’ll always own the starter on 3 teams.

    I also have bilal Powell and Dwayne Washington as a 4th and 5th rb.

      @Johnsnow: I’d do it, Forte probably peaked, sucks to lose Crowell, but I like it.

    So I have a dumb question. My qb is Brees and my backup is Wentz in a 1 qb standard scoring league. Someone just dropped Derek Carr, don’t ask me why. So Carr is better than Wentz, no brainer right? The issue is I need someone to fill in for Brees on 5 different weeks (bad matchups). Both Carr and Wentz have good matchups during those weeks EXCEPT week 10, where Wentz has a good matchup and Carr is on a bye. So, do I take the better qb Carr and cross my fingers with Brees on week 10 (he plays Denver), or do I take Wentz who is not as good as Carr but has good matchups all 5 weeks I need him?

      @John: that’s a great question. I would take the 4 good weeks of Carr and I’ll give you a streamer for week 10! You have to take the chance for more points 4 out of 5 weeks
