Someone give the guy a cigarette and get it over with…

A pretty crowded afternoon slate today, highlighted by the Jaguars vs. Chargers game. Haha, just kidding. Also, not sure how I would type out a crying noise. Or the sound my fetal position makes. Honestly, it’s pretty much the Seahawks vs. Rams and Colts vs. Broncos show, but I’m let the deciding factor be the fact that Troy Aikman and Joe Buck are the crew for just one of those games. So Colts-Broncos game, here we go! Oh, what’s that? Jim Nantz and Phil Simms are handling that one? Oh, okay. Well then. Excuse me for a second. That being said, the Rams always seem to play their division rival Seahawks pretty close, handing them a some surprising upset wins the past few years. Surprising, as one team represents all the things you want out of a continually elite franchise with excellent results, and the other representing mediocrity and disappointingly low expectations year after year and a consistent and frustrating basis. Sure, you can be a person that loves rooting for the underdog, but when the underdog doesn’t even care all that much… and then we have the modernly “historic” (all the oxymoron points) game between the Colts and Broncos, a matchup that hasn’t featured Peyton Manning as either quarterback since 1993. So thanks for making me feel old!

    The hits just keep on coming for me today – now Woodhead is likely done for the day and maybe more. Need a prayer circle for him

      @William Hung: Yeah, I have to be honest, injuries are the worst in FF. Unlike baseball, where the player pool is huge, in fantasy football, you simply cannot survive sometimes. Probably the worst aspect of such a fun game.

    Bortles
    Forte Ingram
    Hopkins Maclin
    Ware
    Kelce
    BN: jCharles, jGordon, Blount, Tevin, Sproles, hogan

      @Zandy: In a heartbeat. Yeah, I totally want Gurley still.

      • Zandy says:

        @Jay: done! Got em! And scored dalton as a backup for Bortles in the deal

          @Zandy: Oh wow. Nice deal man… I actually might have to write up something tomorrow on selling too early. Getting a lot of nervous Gurley owners.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @Jay: schedule was the deciding factor. Gurley gets TB ARI BUF DET NYG

            Forte gets KC SEA PIT ARI BAL

    So Bortles and Allen Robinson decided Week 2 would be a good time for a Bye week?

    • Jay

      @William Hung: Bortles has looked terrible. I mean, I like it as a Chargers fan, but man, his interceptions were terrible.

    TYRELL WILLIAMS HYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYPE

    Rivers looks good. You like him over Derek Carr? By a lot? By a little?

    Also, Allen Robinson owner is freaking out in my league, it’s a keeper and he’s $14. He wants either a $2 Crowell or $6 christine Michael?

    Gotta pull the trigger right? Send cmike or Crowell for a top 10 wr?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      By a little… a little more than that maybe. Yeah, I’d jump on that. Rawls got injured today I think, not sure on the repercussions yet, but I think either is fine.

    who’s going to be the top waiver adds next week and any worth using the #1 waiver on

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Hard to say at the moment. Maybe Coates? Maybe Williams if he wasn’t selected last week? Hard to see, nothing too crazy happened so far.

      • db says:
        (link)

        @Jay: who would you drop for coates in ppr keeper league
        jordan howard, perriman, kevin white, dorsett, sproles, sims

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @db: In an unlimited keeper? Probably Sproles if I don’t need him.

    Weird questions but do most of the writers on this site (including the baseball feed) live on the west coast? Seems like all of the articles get released like 11 pacific time.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Psh: I’m not, I’m on the east coast, but we have a set schedule for a lot of the posts. Football is a bit more 24/7 though. But Grey is on the West Coast, so we schedule over there with that in mind.

    Hey Jay I need your advice asap!

    Eddie Lacy or Ryan Matthews for week 2 (.5 ppr)

    who has more upside? I’m down in pts right now.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @brapbrapbrapbrap1: Yeah, he’s four up in my half rankings too. I like that matchup.

        @Jay: Thanks!

    I wonder if it’s possible that I drafted a whole team of busts. Gurley, Martin, Fleener, Floyd. Ugh just a frustrating week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve: So, Gurley should be fine, tough Seattle defense. Martin and Fleener should be okay… not too worried yet. And Floyd is just a feast or famine guy regardless. He’ll put up a big week for you soon.

      • Steve says:

        @Jay: thanks for the therapy haha hope you’re right

          @Steve: Well, I have a lot of these guys too, so for both our sakes…

    Yahoo sends my phone a notification every time someone on my team throws/catches/runs a touchdown.

    It also sends a notification every time someone on my team gets injured.

    My phone buzzed a lot, but the TDs were scarce. This week has been one of the worst ones I can remember in a long time.

      Jay says:

      @The Theory: Yeah, these injures are killing me, both Allen last week and Woodhead this week were especially jarring.

      @The Theory: good god i’d break like 35 phones a season if mine did that.

    I’m going to have some tough Week 3 roster moves depending on how bad Foster and Woodhead are injured… I got a combined 4 points out of my RBs this week :(

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Yeah, I own both in a lot of leagues. Not good.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: What’s the early prognosis on Woodhead? Season-ender? Last week people knew Allen’s injury was bad within minutes of the game ending

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: Latest only says “Serious injury” on the SDUT site. Doesn’t sound good.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: Looks like I’ll be hunting on the wire this week.

            I’m looking at Fozzy Whittaker of CAR since whoever the Dolphins slide in at RB to spell Foster is going to be sharing. Ajayi did not look good at all.

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @William Hung: Yeah, Fozzy could get a lot of time if Stewart goes out for a while.

    WR: Landry, Watkins
    RB: Freeman, zeke
    TE: gates
    Flex: Corey Coleman, michael Floyd

    Thanks!

      @Josh-NYC: Eh, maybe Morris, but they are pretty much the same thing. Not worth a waiver burn to be honest.
