Breaking News: There is a report coming out that states Drew Brees has a torn rotator cuff and will miss the rest of the season. (There are now other reports being released that he’ll be out for “several” weeks or miss no time at all…) As of this writing, nothing has been confirmed yet, but if the original report is true, then the entire Saints offense takes a huge hit, especially Brandin Cooks and Brandon Coleman. It would have affected Marques Colston, but he’s been dead for two years. More importantly though, this news will give us a Sunday Night Football Week 4 match-up between Brandon Weeden and Luke McCown. Oh boy.

Tonight on Monday Night Football, Todd Bowles has the chance to start the season with a 2-0 record. What other Jets coaches have started 2-0, pray tell? Well, Weeb Ewbank didn’t do that back in 1963, but I believe an Ewok in Return of the Jedi was named after him. In the great (lol) history of the New York Jets, you have to go just a mere few decades back when in 1994 (gasp) Pete Carroll accomplished that feat. He then went 6-10 and got fired. Al Groh went 4-0 in 2000 (after Bill Belichick abruptly resigned), finishing the season 9-7, missing the playoffs. And then, of course, Rex Ryan started 3-0 in 2009 where they lost the AFC Conference Championship to the Colts. I think it was because Mark Sanchez was overweight at the time. After all, the defense just got too tired carrying him all season. Fast forward to present time (I know it’s hard for Andrew Luck to adjust from the paleolithic period) and we might have a Jets team that is capable of not being the Jests, if you know what I mean. Going against a Colts team that many favored to walk into the playoffs (mostly because Luck’s back has a caveman’s width to carry such things) and beating them would confirm that these are not, in fact, your run-of-the-mill-sh*t-the-bed Jets that we’ve come to love and pity. Or at least it would confirm that they are waiting until midseason to spiral into the abyss. So until then!

Drinking Game

luckoutofcontrol

Take one sip of beer if…

Bilal Powell gets the ball when Chris Ivory should have.

You want to give Luck a throat lozenge.

Fitzpatrick does something that makes you want to call him Fitzmagic. (Baby sips…)

There’s a Geno Smith sighting.

Coby Fleener drops a pass.

Jeremy Kerley does something good.

Take one shot of liquor if…

Anyone uses Andrew Luck’s last name as a pun or in a play of words.

Peyton Manning is mentioned.

You confuse Andrew Luck’s incredibly huge mouthpiece for an orange peel.

    12 team non-PPR standard league.
    I’m a Romo owner. I also have Phillip Rivers. 1 and 2nd on waiver priority list. I am also 0-2.

    Should I use my waiver spot to pick up Tyrod Taylor? His stats are CLOSE to Rivers but with his upcoming schedule and my team being in the hole, I feel like could have more upside with Taylor.

  2. Mark says:

    AJ or Decker? Non PPR. Down 2 with one of them to play vs the Jets D.

      @Mark: Andre.

    Chasing 6 pts full ppr start hilton or andre Johnson

    He has Decker and moncrief

    Should I trade Cooks straight up for Maclin now? Or do you think he is worth more even with Brees being out? I feel I should trade him as soon as possible before this Brees news gets out to people more.

    Jay what QB has the most value for the rest of the season.?
    McGloin, Weeden Claussen or McCown.

      @SH: Weeden. Scary, I know

  6. Gio says:

    If Brees does in fact have a torn rotator cuff do you see the value of Ingram and/or spiller increasing?

      @Gio: I could see it, definitely.

    looking like breezus ain’t that hurt, but worse, he’ll play (and probably look like he’s done so far).
    6 PT TD league for some asinine reason i figured he was still worthy enough of drafting in top 5 rounds. PPR full pt and start 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex. this team is having enough problems with forsett being taken off his own goal line and roddy/evans not being used by their teams.

    1. drop royal for one of these backup QB’s: bortles @ NE, kaep @ ARI, fitzmajik vs PHI, Mallett vs TB
    2. drop cruz or royal and attempt to drop royal for t.smith/jones/crabtree

      • Mike Hunt's Honorable Discharge says:
        (link)

        @Jay: and cruz is worth more (assuming he comes back) than m.jones in case i can’t get t.smith (i’m guessing kaep should be my first waiver attempt, making smith less likely to get), so set up will look like
        1. royal drop getting kaep
        2. royal drop getting t.smith
        3. cruz drop getting t.smith

  12. Dom B says:

    Who should add and who should I drop I have a high wavier. Available people Matt Jones, Travis Benjamin, Dion Lewis, Stevie Johnson, James Stark, Devonta Freeman, Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson, Andy Dalton , Jameis Winston , Ryan Mallet , Teddy Bridgewater , Marcus Mariota , Johnny Manziel , Alex Smith, Colin Kapernick, and Tyrod Taylor… THANKS FOR THE ADVICE

      @Dom B: Matt Jones for Romo is fine I think.

  13. Mike Hunt's Honorable Discharge says:

    wow, that’s the worst grounding call i’ve ever seen, there was a guy within 3 yds of it.

      • Mike Hunt's Honorable Discharge says:
        (link)

        @Jay: in all leagues i have any of these (ivory, luck, pryor), or are playing against any of these (AJ, marshall, decker) things are pretty much already decided, so i can’t get too up for it, but i’m not liking for longer term how ugly the IND offense is looking at all. Gore meanwhile looked faster than in the last couple of years, but then they don’t run him or have him block when they need it. Bradshaw should’ve already been there and i’m betting it only takes another week.

  14. Gio says:

    Rest of season half PPR:

    1) Brady or Ben

    2) Gurley or Ingram

    • Mike Hunt's Honorable Discharge says:
      (link)

      @Gio: ingram for sure.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Gio: Brady and Ingram.

    .5 PPR League…

    I have Brees as my only QB.
    RB – Gore and Lacy
    WR- A. Brown, Cobb
    TE – Witten
    Bench – Matt Jones, Joique Bell, Tre Mason, Allen Robinson, John Brown, Mike Wallace

    My team was pretty banged up this week. Thoughts on who to drop and who to pick up?
    I was planning on starting Matt Jones in place of Lacy, but might need a TE and QB (if witten and brees are out)

    Free agents – Kapernick, Dalton, Winston, Taylor
    TE – Fleener, Vernon Davis, Donnell, Ebron, Rodgers, Gilmore

    To make matters more complicated…Sammy Watkins was dropped and is available. Who would you put your waiver claims in for?

    Thanks for the advice.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah, this is tough. You actually might have to wait until tomorrow to figure out what to do with Brees. Maybe Wallace for another TE, but my bet is that Witten plays.

  16. Mike Hunt's Honorable Discharge says:
    (link)

    and know the coach of IND pretends it’s training camp by benching gore for a 4 yds to TD run. i don’t own gore but do own luck (so i don’t mind if luck has to throw now), but this is just stupid.

  17. Mantis Toboggan MD says:

    standard league. start 3 WR, 3 RB, 2 flex (can be a TE), max 6 RB and WR. Large benches
    rivers/dalton/taylor
    ingram/mccoy/hyde/sankey/k.davis/bush (kept him due to possible hyde injury)
    julio/a.robinson/allen/royal/cruz/j.nelson (RES, can keep for next year)
    olsen/cameron/gates (RES)
    drop royal for any of hurns/r.matthews (MIA)/hankerson/shorts/aiken?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: I’m actually fine holding here. I like Royal a bit better than those other options.

      • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
        (link)

        @Jay: wasn’t sure about hurns, but his usage seems less certain for a standard. Wow, in one standard this guy i help out is actually winning (barely) and all his opp had to get was 9 total pts from marshall + AJ. AJ looks like shit (and maybe IND is finally wising up playing dorsett ahead of him eventually), and until von davis went out i think he should’ve been favored near end of 1st half. not now, as marshall probably ain’t covered too well.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Mantis Toboggan MD: I like Hurns, but I think Royal is more useful as depth.

    use my 3rd waiver priority in an 8 team PPR to drop Jordan Cameron for Jordan Reed?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @dom: Nah. I don’t think it’s worth burning that claim.

      • dom says:
        (link)

        @Jay: turns out I’m actually 8 out of 8 on waiver as they go inverse standings each week, so burning a claim doesn’t matter? so I guess the question is which TE should I get (PPR)

        Hold Jordan Cameron (groin)
        Jordan Reed
        Seferian-Jenkins (sore shoulder)
        Eric Ebron
        Crocket Gilmore
        Ladarius Green
        Kyle Rudolph
        Jared Cook
        Vernon Davis

        thanks

          @dom: Ah, then I might go Reed there then.

    Justin Forsett and James jones for Jeremy hill?

    Cj Anderson and Ronnie hillman for mark Ingram/Tyler eifert

    Davonte freeman and James jones for Keenan Allen Giovanni Bernard

  22. Help says:

    I’m a 10 team standard scoring league, a guy offered me justin Forsett , frank gore and Martellus Bennet for lynch and Lagarette Blount..

    My current te is Zachary ertz. Megaton my wr/ Peyton my qb. Rest is kind of irrelevant. Idk how I feel about frank gore but I’m also concerned with both beast mode and Blount ..

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Help: I wouldn’t be on Lynch, Blount is another story, but I’m still holding here.

      • help says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so stick with beast mode/ blount right?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @help: I would.

    OK, so I have brees in my 10 team standard league. Who would you pick up out of these?

    T bridgewater
    C Kapernick
    J Flacco
    A Smith
    J Winston
    N foles
    T Taylor
    K Cousins
    B bortles
    J Manziel
    D Carr
    R fitzpratick
    R Mallet

    Do I just do a QB caoursel from week to week while I wait for Brees?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Blake: yeah, pretty robust group there. Stream, but start with Kap.

    ppr league

    how much of a $100 FAAB bid would you spend on Matt Jones, James Starks, or Andy Dalton?

    My starters are:
    RB: Charles, Morris
    WR: Calvin Johnson, Jordan Matthews
    Flex – Jeffrey
    Backups: Coleman, CJ Spiller, Agholor, Foster, Blount, John Brown

    I would have to drop Joique Bell and Tony Romo to pick up these players

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Sneezing Jesus: well, I still like Bell. Dalton, probably 10 bucks. I don’t think you need Starks. And I bet someone goes crazy on Jones.

  27. Nick says:
    (link)

    I feel like the TE position is real difficult to predict this year outside of Gronk…I have Bennett starting & L Green on my bench…with options like Gillmore, Ebron, H Miller, Davis & Julius Thomas in my 10team, do I continue to hold L Green as backup/bye filler or pickup a different backup?

    I paid $15 for L Green so I’m hesitant to let go…and on the WR side, could use the extra depth with Garcon, Ty, Amari Cooper, Charles Johnson, Markus Wheaton & Roddy…but WRs available are crap like Hankerson, T Benjamin, Lockett, Crabtree…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yeah, Gillmore intrigues me, but you already invested in Green, which is fine, so I’d hold there.
