Countless times you and I have spoken about the NFC East derp levels, only because these levels are affecting our lives faster and more pronounced than that of global warming and Donald Trump’s hair thingamajig. But with Washington looking somewhat competent today, and I say “somewhat” just for the mere fact that I’m so surprised of said competency (focused mainly in the first half), that I’m not even sure it actually happened. It could all be made up! But regardless, even with the Giants doing sorta what the Giants do, it’s fair to say our normal derp levels are running low, here comes the Dez Bryantless Cowboys and the always innovative (except when they are super innovative) Eagles, here to quench our derp-thirst. Which sounds like a great name for a porno blooper reel.

The rest of the afternoon includes the Ravens and Raiders, and the Florida matchup no one wanted but I guess we had to have, the Dolphins at the Jaguars. So yeah, I guess Cowboys and Eagles it is…

    after winning in like 7/8 of leagues last week i got a lot of problems this one. jennings doing nothing, roddy with no catches (vereen on bench is), a.roberts might’ve lost his job and no longer does returns either, hyde hurt and i just dropped r.bush everywhere, mike floyd appears to not exist and with d-jax/cruz out i have to play him, cooks and allen not getting targets, d.lewis on bench (how is blount NOT in that game!), at least david johnson is finally getting carries.

    20 team league, the worst of the worst, where i’m WAS and drafted all top rookies in Agholor and 3 IDP studs of the future since i thought i was set at RB with AP, Morris, Michael, Sims, and Helu. Didn’t think Matt Jones would be drafted in the 2nd round, but he was and appears to have been given Morris’ job in week 2. Thank god i drafted Morris nowhere else. Since Roberts doesn’t do returns anymore (.1 pts per return yard here), grab Grant or Crowder or Mariani for WR # behind Garcon/Agholor/D-Jax, we have to start 2, with 1 flex, which is Morris.

        @Jay: stick with A.Rob for now or grab Grant/Mariani (1095 return yards projected)/owusu NYJ(808 return yards, and 373 scrimmage yards caught projected, apparently this guy is listed as starting WR at NYJ), or even aiken. i have 11 WAS players, (10 min) with 2 in IR slots, and could of course stash more in there.

    Seeing how today played out, would you drop Jennings for matt jones? It’s obvious that al the upside is in Jones’s favor, and with Bell, McCoy, and Morris in my stable, I don’ really see Jennings getting in there much.

      @killer joe: Yeah, I’m ready to do that.

      @killer joe: if you had more RB’s i would do that, but with only 4 i wouldn’t. You either have a short bench or likely too many WR, or maybe a less useful backup QB or TE that you could and should lose for jones. I doubt it’s all that cut and dried that will get jones now though.

        @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: It’s actually a fair point, but the Giants just look silly so could be a shoot from the hip thing. Granted, if it’s just a 2 RB league, he probably has enough.

      • killer joe says:
        (link)

        @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: thanks guys. We paly 1 RB and 2 Flex so I think my RB depth is ok. I have Coleman, Mathews and D. Johnson as well, to go with Cobb, Allen, Garcon, Agholor at WR.

        • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
          (link)

          @killer joe: well yeah, if you already have all of those, you mentioned it at first as if you had 4 RB total. With all of that grab Jones, but again, i doubt you are able to .

  3. WillisReed says:

    My RB’s are Lacy Murray and Ellington

    WR are Green Edelman L Fitz

    Should I try and move Edelman or Fitzgerald for a RB?

    12 team standard

    Pretty sure I can get Melvin Gordon plus a reciever like Landry for Edelman.

    • Jay

      @WillisReed: I’d do that trade for those guys.

    My opponent has Rodgers and Cobb.. His last 2 to go. I have Brandon Marshall for tomorrow and James jones tonight.

    Do I try and cap my opponents upside with Rodgers to James jones tonight? Or do I bench James jones and play frank gore tomorrow night instead?

    I’m up by like 25 right now but Rodgers/Cobb will easily blow through that lead
    Thanks

      @Shookonespart2: I might mitigate with Jones there, sure.

    weird scheduling today, i could’ve sworn there was like 3 more late day games on sunday, and this is even with 1 less monday game this week.

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: yeah, morning loaded. I honestly hate it writing wise. I have the Charges game on my desktop, cbs and fox on my tv and redzone on my laptop… I got dizzy.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: you’d think TV-viewership-wise it would make more money to space the games out as much as possible, like 2 mondays, 2 thursdays, and as close to half-half rest of them on the two sunday times

  6. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:

    it isn’t quite as funny as the people who drafted ball last year high as F like ESPN/Yahoo had him in the 2nd round, but murray this year as if he has any chance at providing a late 1st or 2nd round value is close.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:

        @Jay: just like with the Rams, these teams at some point might want to maybe, i don’t know, have a decent O-line rather than drafting/signing/trading for players that simply won’t do much unless the O-Line is decent or better first. NE and GB seem to understand this idea, and somehow by some weird accident ALWAYS have competitive teams. funny eh.

    Did anybody else see Tom Brady picking his nose on the sideline in the third quarter today?

    • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:

      @killer joe: probably had a booger up there.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @killer joe: he probably is not allowed to in the presence of gizelle.

      • killer joe says:
        (link)

        @Jay: They just watched him digging for like 10 or 15 seconds. He was getting after it!

          • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
            (link)

            @Jay: so nice those billion dollar TV rights shows have so little to do other than stick a camera at a guy picking his nose for 10-15 seconds while a pro sports game is going on.

              • killer joe says:
                (link)

                @Jay: If you can pick em like Brady, you could win a million

                    @Jay: they should save that footage just for that commercial.

    wow, is romo the NFL’s tulo or what? that didn’t look the kind of hit that should injure anybody healthy. with DAL’s season about over now, who else is hoping c.michael can start getting some carries? Sorry Randle owners, but your guy is up next for injury anyway.

    standard league. dynasty. with c.johnson apparently no longer part of MIN’s offensive plans go with any of m.jones/aiken/kearse or just wait due to dynasty? excepting all my injuries (walker/ellington/dez/hyde/foles/julius thomas) i won’t need to play this person much, if at all.

    PPR league…just lost Romo.

    My most droppable players are Blount and J. Bell.

    Available QBs are Bridgewater, Kapernick, Flacco, Cutler, Dalton, Winston, Taylor

    Who would you drop and who would you pick up?

    Thanks

    • Pleasant Odor says:
      (link)

      Or Romo? I won’t be making the move until Tuesday night (waivers), so I can see what the news is,..

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Pleasant Odor: Probably Kap or Taylor. You might just have to stream honestly, but let’s wait for reports tomorrow just to make sure.

      • Pleasant Odor says:
        (link)

        Thanks. I have a guy in my league with Brady and Luck. Who would you give up for one of them? I have Al Morris, Agholor, Spiller, J. Matthews, Tevin Coleman, Foster, John Brown, Blount, J. Bell?

        My starters are Jamaal Charles, Calvin Johnson, Jeffrey so I have some WR/RB depth

        • Jay

          @Pleasant Odor: Maybe see if he’ll bite on Morris for Luck.
