This game, in a nutshell.

This game, in a nutshell.

In what was another snore fest that Monday Night Football can sometimes (almost all the time) be known for (at least as much as Thursday Night Football games can be), let me tell you, this one met that mark. And then surpassed it by innumerable. The first three quarters (and the last five minutes of regulation in the fourth quarter) lived up to the hype that I’m sure could have only been matched by a local mattress store Labor day commercial: a slow, cheesy, and clunky experience, which seems wholly natural as that basically describes Indianapolis, where science has taught us that rolling is the most popular form of transportation. In fact, for the first three quarters, I’m not sure sure either team’s offense understood what the game of football is or what it does. In this battle of attrition (for the viewers too), the Jets gained the upper hand, convincing me enough that both teams had probably switched uniforms before game time and decided to see who could perform the poorest. Suffice it to say, the Colts won that face off. Or do the Jets technically win there? I have no idea, all I know is that we lost. But, as I did mention earlier, the entire game wasn’t completely devoid of events resembling football. Some offense did occur in spurts, though it was mainly concentrated at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Alas, it was too late by then, there was little this game could accomplish to offset the damage done to everyone. The previous four interceptions and three fumbles (six of the turnovers were happily donated by the Colts), and struggling to figure out who the ef Quincy Enunwa was ended up being the line for me. Monday Night Football folks… Oh, hey, the Jaguars are now in first place, something that hasn’t occurred since the lovely year of 1462. So that happened…

New to Daily Fantasy Football? Try out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. (Played on FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)

Eric Decker – 8 REC, 97 YDS, 1 TD. Upper… Decker? Am I allowed to do that joke? I mean, I’m know I’m allowed to, it’s my post, but in the greater sense… does morality allow this? Unfortunately (for the nine fantasy teams that depend on him), Decker left the fourth quarter from an apparent PCL injury and is doubtful in Week 3 and possibly could be out several weeks.

Ryan Fitzpatrick – 22/34, 244 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 1 CAR, 6 YDS. There were some spurts of Fitzmagic, but I certianly did not get the Fitz nor the magic that I was promised. It was a very… pedestrian game if I’m being nice (I’m a nice guy, I swear!), and I think we probably can just chaulk up the interception due to the fact that Fitzpatrick played on the Texans last year… so he’s very used to throwing passes to the Colts.

Frank Gore – 15 CAR, 57 YDS, 1 FUM and 1 REC, 4 YDS. Watching Frank Gore run, I can totally understand why Obama doesn’t care about our veterans.

T.Y. Hilton – 4 REC, 45 YDS. NOBODY ESCAPES REVIS ISLAND ALIVE. Which actually isn’t far from the truth. He clearly wasn’t 100%, and was in and out of the game with some knee issues in the second half. We’re just going to have to see how the Colts handle him in practice to gauge his Week 3 status.

Andre Johnson – 3 REC, 27 YDS. So much this. I’ll take full credit for his ranking and continued faith this week… it’s hard to figure out. The Colts look lost, so that doesn’t help, but I’m afraid it’s a bit more than that. He seems either out of sync (which can happen with a new team) or just a tad off on his timing and route running. Yes, he could have lost a step, but I’m not willing to write him totally off until the Colts start looking more like a functioning football team. But I’m hesitant to start him if I have other options from this point forward.

Andrew Luck – 21/37, 250 YDS, 1 TD, 3 INT and 4 CAR, 24 YDS, 1 FUM. Andrew Luck and Bobby Jindal make me question the value of an Ivy League education. On top of that, having an Amish quarterback means you can’t even use gadget plays… Oh trust me, with the sh*tshow he put me through last night, I can go for days. Hey, do you know what Andrew Luck’s favorite PlayStation game is? Grand Theft Horse and Buggy… Why was Luck so terrible? Because he spent the entire game trying to figure out how they’re able to play football inside at night. For days I have these… days.

Marshallbull

Brandon Marshall – 7 REC, 101 YDS, 1 TD. As enjoyable as it was to finally see old Brandon Marshall, at some point, you’d think the Colts would have wanted cover Marshall. Just seemed like the prudent thing to do, ya know? Or, as you can see above, maybe just hire more defensive backs or something. Some camera men too. Maybe some large baskets.

Donte Moncrief – 7 REC, 122 YDS, 1 TD. Let me tell you, Antonio Cromartie lost track of this kid last night, which is not shocking…

Quincy Enunwa – 1 REC, 27 YDS. Quincy Enunwa? Eeenounwoah? Is that it? What about Chris Owusu? Awhoowah? Ooouswa? Ohwoozo? Who are some of these Jets players even?

    I’m considering a trade that involves a few prominant Colts, and wondered what your thoughts were on it…

    I get:

    Andrew Luck – QB
    Jonathan Stewart -RB
    Chris Johnson (or Karlos Williams) – RB
    Larry Fitzgerald -WR

    He gets:

    Ryan Tannehill – QB
    Matthew Stafford – QB
    Frank Gore – RB
    Dion Lewis – RB
    Andre Johnson – WR

    Two questions:

    – Is it a fair trade, particularly for him?

    -Do you think I should make the trade?

    I’m the Commish in this league, and every time I make a trade, no matter how fair it is, I get grief from one of the members of the league for “ripping people off” (my Cousin -figures.) So I always try to get “backup” opinions to corroborate my opinion that the trade is fair and reasonable. Thanks!

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @DILinator: as in life it’s the mark’s fault, not the guy winning trades, now if somebody thinks it’d be better for the league to not have marks that give their teams away in bad deals, that’s an interesting argument. I’m not saying this deal if one of those. Unlike laws in a country, that may or may not want to protect people from themselves, we’d all be better off (except for the trade rapists) if our leagues didn’t have marks giving players away (unless they spread them out evenly of course). Beating ignorant people in trades might be just like a lending spot charging 300% to illiterate or trusting people, but unlike in commercial life, where the fate of some dummy making himself so homeless he has to rob people for food and crack actually does badly affect mostly everyone and is to be avoided maybe (even if this infringes on somebody’s ability to accumulate extra wealth), one owner with no chance of winning since he’s stupid isn’t as much a worry that needs to be protected against.

      Anybody that actually claims you are “ripping people off” is really saying the opp in every one of your trades should be protected from himself for the good of the league, the same as usury laws.

      Jay says:

      @DILinator: Yeah, this trade is fine for you, and fair. Honestly, someone is always going to raise a stink.

  2. Packers says:

    In a 2 QB league I lost Romo. I have 2 questions for you. 1. Do I roster Romo the rest of the year, hoping he could help if I make the playoffs? I would have to drop an upside wide receiver if not, Hurns, or Coleman. 2. First priority claim Weeden or Fritz? Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Packers: if your depth can handle it, I think it’s okay to hold him in a 2 QB league if you’re have a for sure playoff team. If it’s on the cusp, a WR may come in handy. And Weeden.

    My Jets did well during primetime for once! Anyways, in 10-team, drop STL defense for Cleveland, Arizona, Dallas, Colts, Pitt?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Well, they won… it’s a start! Right now, I have Zona.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: So safe to drop STL in 10-team? I’d assume there is not really any defense worth holding on through entire season except maybe Seattle, right?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: I don’t even think Seattle is worth holding onto at this point… but we’ll see. Rams are in the upper tier though, and I actually didn’t catch that. I think you should stick with the Rams.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: & 2-0 is a GREAT start, not worried who they played against!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Cowles is the fourth coach in the history of the Jets to do that, btw.

  4. Nick says:
    (link)

    Also, hold with just Peyton on my roster in 1 QB league, or go for a backup (bye week filer now) in T Taylor, D Carr, Kaepernick, Palmer, Dalton? I’d have to drop someone like Roddy White, Sankey, Tre Mason, Charles Johnson or my backup TE L Green…

    • Clyde Prompto says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Palmer has looked great, I’d lose Ladarius for him with Gates returning in a couple weeks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I think you can hold for now until Peyton’s bye arrives.

    half ppr… would you give up gurley to receive edelman? My RB’s are stacked, bell, forte, ingram and gurley.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Gio: In a heartbeat.

  6. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Now with Brees possibly hurt, my trade of Moncrief for Cooks is looking worse and worse…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: I would disagree here. I like Moncrief, but I think Cooks can be a top-10 receiver. Now, obviously, he’ll struggle a bit without Brees, but I think you should still be happy with the deal. And the news coming out on Brees is getting a bit better.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Jay: It’s still looking like a multi-week absence for Brees is possible. I have Julio, Evans, A-Rob, and Cooks, so I’m not hurting. But it would be nice if Evans makes an appearance this week.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: Evans doing anything would be nice…

  7. Scott says:
    (link)

    Wow, double diss on Gore.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott: I know his pain.

  8. Robert says:
    (link)

    Drop Andre Johnson for Moncrief?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Robert: It’s a pickle, but I think it’s clear that Luck favors one and not the other. If you need to start a WR out of those two, drop him, but if this bench depth, I’m a bit more inclined to hang onto Johnson just a wee bit longer.

  9. tom says:
    (link)

    What are your thoughts on Gurley the rest of the way STUD or DUD

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @tom: can it be somewhere in between? I see him as a RB 2 or 3 when he has regular snaps and depending on matchups.

  10. Allan says:
    (link)

    Jay,
    I’ve played Luck over Brady two weeks in a row now. Until Luck gets over whatever funk he’s in Brady the start moving forward right?

    • Barker says:
      (link)

      @Allan: trade one

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Allan: yes. Though trading Brady while he’s hot (like the other reply mentions) could be good for you too.

  11. Hoss says:
    (link)

    Lost Romo, 12 team 6 point/TD pass league. Who’s the best replacement for next week and ROS? Dalton, Taylor, Winston, Bortles, or Carr?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Hoss: Dalton for now, but I like the upside of Taylor more if can deal with some growing pains.

  12. Clint says:
    (link)

    The Jets need to hurry up and lose as usual because I refuse to go an entire sports season listening to constant New York hype. At this rate, we’re going from Mets/Yankees hysteria to Jets are awesome with no pause in between. If the Knicks and Rangers start out strong, I’m gonna have a gun barrel in my mouth before Christmas.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Clint: the Jets will find a way to collapse. It’s in their nature.

      @Clint: must be hard to turn on a TV (or listen to people talk in public) in the NY area.

  13. Dave says:

    Better pickup for me a Lacy owner in a PPR, Matt Jones or James Starks? My Current Rb’s are Lacy, Hyde, Tevin Coleman, Dion Lewis.

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dave: Jones.

  14. Franks N Beans says:
    (link)

    Howdy Jay!

    I stream defenses; which D/St do you like best for week 3?

    – Raiders D (@ Cleveland, looks like Josh mccowen will start)

    – Titans D (vs colts, Colts haven’t looked in sync.)

    – Falcons D (@ Dallas, no romo, no Dez, witten is dealing with a rolled ankle & sprained knee.)

    – Eagles D (@ Jets, Eric decker is dealing with a PCL injury,)

    – Colts D (@ Titans, considering they gave up 20 points vs jets they didn’t do all that bad.)

    – Browns D (vs Raiders)

    – Vikings D (vs chargers)

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Franks N Beans: right now, Raiders, but double check my thursday rankings.

  15. Chad B says:

    2 Trades on the table:
    10 team Yahoo league non-ppr
    Should I do either or both?
    My team:
    QB-Brady, Tannehill
    RB- Lacy, Gore, Randle, Yeldon, Ivory
    WR- Julio, Green, Evans, A. Robinson, J. Brown, Stevie Johnson
    TE- Witten

    1) My Brady and Gore for his Luck

    2) My Stevie and Robinson for his Eifert and R Jennings

    • Chad B says:
      (link)

      @Chad B: or make that Blount instead of jennings

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chad B: I’d hold on both.

      • Chad B says:
        (link)

        @Jay: should i do my stevie for his eifert?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Chad B: I think WR’s have more value than TE’s, but if Johnson is just sitting on your bench, it’s a fair trade.

    10 team 1/2 ppr have # 1 waiver

    Team is 0-2 so need a win — i dont know if anyone on wire will help to that end — so maybe save the # 1 waiver

    I want to drop agholor probably wont get starks or crowell without a waiver claim so maybe drop agholor for royal or bell or perriman or crowell if he clears after waivers clear

    I am going to need a qb and a TE for week 5 should i try to get one of them this week i have narrowed the drops for these positions to agholor and mathews but i want to wait to drop mathews until week 5 as murray insurance or should i not care because the eagles cant run at all anyway

    • Barker says:
      (link)

      @Barker: matt jones is also available is he worth a # 1 waiver claim?

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @Barker: I think he could be. I might actually drop Mathews for him.

    Hi jay!
    16 team,standard league. I desperately need one RB. Would you trade T.Williams or Marvin Jones for Vereen? And who between the two? With romo’s injury i almost prefer to keep Jones,but i really don’t know.
    Useless to say that best waiver options are Powell or Mccluster. This is my roster:

    QB ELI MANNING
    WR A.BROWN
    WR EVANS
    WR EDELMAN
    WR T.WILLIAMS
    WR M.JONES
    WR AIKEN
    RB L.MURRAY
    RB FOSTER
    RB TRE MASON
    RB BALL(yes,i’m really desperate)
    TE EIFERT
    TE A.GATES

    Thanks from Italy

          What about Thursday.. Start Alfred Morris or Matt Jones?? In my league, PPR with bonuses, Jones got 33.60 and Morris got 9.20 and had 1 less carry then Jones

          • Jay

            Jay says:

  23. Dave says:

    Hey Jay would you trade Cooks and Garcon for Jarvis Landry (PPR)? Not too thrilled with Cooks especially with Brees getting hurt. My receivers now are Calvin Johnson, Cooks, Amari Cooper, Charles Johnson, Garcon.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dave: I would hold, I still like Cooks over Landry.

  24. Jake says:
    (link)

    I traded Carlos Hyde and T Eifert for his Eddie Lacy and Jared Cook. I already have Kelce so was a headache trying to figure out which TE to use week to week. I feel like I upgraded at RD to make my starting line up better (Your thoughts ). I have the #1 waiver wire claim would you use this to pick up Starks for just 1 week or would you want to stay at the top of waiver priority ? My other RB’S are Jeremy Hill, Doug Martin, Danny Woodhead

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jake: Yeah, that trade makes a lot of sense for you. I would hold for now on the waiver.

    In 12 team ppr, I’m leaning to Trying to rank ros at three spots:
    How would you rank?
    1. Starting QB (6pt tds): Tanny, Eli, mariota
    2. rb4 behind 2 starters: Marty jones/ruin Lewis/David Johnson/Blount
    3. Wr5 (start 3): decker or Charles Johnson

    Thank you

    Yo Jay just posted this elsewhere but curious what your thoughts are – . 20 team league, 1/4 pt PPR I’m in serious trouble. I’m 0-2 and have put up roughly 50 pts a week… not good.

    Q- Bradford
    Wr- Megatron
    Wr – Cooks
    Rb – Blount
    Rb – Duke Johnson
    TE – Olsen
    Flex – Ladarius

    Bn – Cecil Shorts
    Bn – Andre Williams
    Bn – Antonio Gates
    Bn – Javorius Allen
    Bn – Mallet

    K – Dawson

    Def- Cincinnati
    Def 2 – Giants

    Travis Benjamin, Malcolm Floyd, Crockket Gillmore, Fasano, Tamme, Dexter McCluster, Dobson, Heyward-Bey, Josh Robinson and Kamar Aiken are all on waivers.

    I feel like I’ve got to drop like 30 on McCluster givent the Mccluster that is my backfield – please let me know what you think for best pickups/drops and how much to blow

    thanks man

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @SheriffMcRawDawg: Yeah, haha. I might drop Green for now and go for Gillmore or Benjamin. Leaning slightly Benjamin in this format.

  28. Kendrick Llama says:

    Pick 2 of 3 PPR: Maclin vs GB, Allen Rob vs NE, and Tannehill vs Buff

    Pick 2 of 4 PPR: Gore vs Titans, Hill vs Ravens, Freeman vs Cowboys, Matt Jones vs NYG

    Could also pick one from top and 3 from RBs

  29. Sneezing Jesus says:
    (link)

    I was offered Eli Manning and Jordan Reed for Jordan Matthews. I’d rather not make this deal, as I am most likely getting Dalton on waivers.

    My QB = romo
    RBs = Charles, A. Morris, Foster, Blount, J. Bell, Spiller
    WRs = Megatron, Matthews, Algoholor, Jeffrey, John Brown
    TE = ASJ

    Would you trade Alfred Morris for Reed and eli Manning?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

    Seferian’s owner doesn’t have a second TE. Jared Cook is a free agent.

    Should I offer Green and Woodhead for Abdullah?

      @DT2: is he aware of gates coming back in 2 weeks? if he isn’t sure, but i bet he beats you to cook rather than trade for a TE who will drop off big time in week 5 and after

    HAHAHA! oh my god what did jimmer think was gonna happen going to SEA, man these guys really are stupid. However, their agents aren’t, and clearly he didn’t inform Jimmer about how football teams work, and what they do.

    “Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reports Jimmy Graham is “pissed off” and “hates” his role with the Seahawks.
    According to Freeman, “several” Seahawks players have informed him of this and it’s a “fact.” Graham allegedly “hates what’s happening in Seattle” where he’s “barely looked at in the passing game”

      • Mike Hunt's Honorable Discharge says:

        @Jay: i mean mostly the targets, couldn’t he look up the exact same info us fantasy dorks do and find that SEA hasn’t used their TE for years and years? He could do more research and find Carroll’s offenses over the years too. I’m sure his agent knew all about this and just said, “hmm, i could take a little less money and tell the truth that my client might be interested in, or not”

          @Mike Hunt’s Honorable Discharge: Not like it was his choice. To be honest, TE’s should do well in this system, but I’m not sure where the breakdown is.

    demeryius thomas for alshon jeffery/ keenan allen
    d. thomahs for alshon jeffery/ sammy watkins

    d thomas/ t. coleman for frank gore/ alshon jeffery/ garcon

    could you rank these trades in order of which you’d do first/ last and which side wins the deal?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @help: Allen side and Thomas side. Then go the Jeffery side. I would do the first one, not too crazy about the other two.

      • help says:
        (link)

        @Jay: best deal to split demeryius thomas into alshon and keenan allen?

        im the demeryius owner, just clarigying. you must think last week was an aberration for allen then? im a litte concerned

          @help: I’m not really, there will be off days, but he’ll hold enough with the value of Alshon.

    Hey Jay, I wanted to say good call on Woodhead this year. Managed to get him late in a few of my leagues for RB depth and it is really paying off.

    .5 PPR 16 team league.

    QB: Bradford
    WR: Cooks, Fitzgerald, Moncrief, T Williams, A Johnson
    RB: Forte, Ivory, Woodhead
    TE: Ebron
    K: Gould
    D/ST: Panthers

    Bradford troubles me. Do I drop him outright or another QB and try streaming or drop Johnson as I feel he is the week link here?

    QB options with week 3 matchups are:
    Bortles @ NE (my first choice)
    Fitzmagic v PHI
    Foles v PIT
    Winston @ HOU
    Tyrod @ MIA

      Jay says:

      @IV: Thanks! Blind squirrel finds a nut here and there… I would stream, but keep him one more week.

    Hey Jay…I guess you can say I ‘lucked’ out…you had mentioned after a post that STL should be held as they are still upper tier…well I bid $1 for ‘Zona & someone else with a higher waiver priority got em from under me for $1!!!

    Welp now I’m stuck with STL vs. Pitt which makes me nervous…should I roll the die with STL or drop em for Miami? (the other guy who stole AZ from me, dropped the Phins)

    Next, I also lost out on M Jones at a bid of $10. Other leaguemates bid $11, $16 & $18 (winner)..so I’m stuck with Tre Mason on the bench…

    Lastly, at TE this week I’m pretty sure I’m going L Green over Bennett (with Cutler out), agreed?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Rams make me a bit nervous against the Steelers. I’d hold in that scenario though. I’m still going Bennett there, a good TE can be a bad QB’s dream.

        @Jay: same reason i think witten (or escobar) could be quite good now, for those worried about witten’s usage (if he plays)

    Jay,

    10 team standard league. Just got offered this trade.
    I give up Forte and Cobb for Lynch and Edelmen.

    What do you think?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Fizz: I think it’s the most lateral trade I’ve ever seen. Haha. I’d hold unless you’re a Patriots or Seahawks fan.

    20 team PPR where green screwed me over being hurt till less than 24 hours till week 1 game, dropped him and did not get anybody else. have gates as well. grabbed fells ARI after he did well, wasn’t targeted in week 2. just waivered escobar reading witten was hurt, now hearing witten is fine. grab any of these or just wait to see if in fact witten is ok, as escobar could easily have a top 8 TE week if he starts alone with weeden. tried out cumberland in week 1 from fantasy pros ranks. no targets there either. to i have zero total pts from TE slot in 2 weeks.
    other options fells/rivera/lewis, or i could get lucky with fasano if walker doesn’t play of course. So i’m TE vulturing, like with saves for closer off days in baseball. Also, would the 3rd string at SD be an option if green doesn’t go?

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: i meant i dropped green and got cumberland, but did not reaquire green.

        @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: You know, I changed my mind, I’m doing my rankings right now, and Fells ended up higher than I would have thought. Not super high mind you , but I like him more than other experts and in a league that big, might be worth a shot.

        • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
          (link)

          @Jay: 17th or so is about what i’m hoping for, so yeah, not high. same reasoning i grabbed fells for week 2.
