HISTORY IN THE MAKING PEOPLE

HISTORY IN THE MAKING PEOPLE

In what was an oft-rainy night an Lambeau Field (IF ONLY IT WERE SNOW, WE’D ALL EXPLODE), our long national nightmare finally ended. No, Alex Smith did not retire. Instead, he finally threw a touchdown to a receiver (shown above), something that hadn’t happened in the Chiefs last 17 games. Or, in calendar terms, not since December 8th, 2013. Folks, Andy Reid’s long con has finally paid off. That being said, it’s so very Chiefs that the record-breaking extravaganza for a useless stat occurred in a game in which they basically got blown out. The garbage time was strong with this one (even almost bringing the game within one possession with 1:25 to play before botching the two-point conversion), but it’s abundantly clear that the Chiefs may not be that good at the footballs. In a striking follow-up point, the Packers have shown that they might be pretty good at the footballs. If someone made a movie based on my time here at Razzball, it would be called: An Analytical Life. Or quite possibly WHERE ARE MY DATES? I WAS PROMISED DATES. But enough about myself and my movies, let’s make fun of Alex Smith more…

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!)

Davante Adams – (2 TGTS.) Exited last night’s game after the Packers first possession, presumabley from reaggravating his left-ankle injury. We’ll have to wait and see what news comes out today, but as of now, James Jones, Ty Montgomery, and Jeff Janis all stay fantasy relevent. Okay, maybe not Jeff Janis… (WHYYYYYYYYY?)

Charlesdiscountdoublecheck

Jamaal Charles – 11 CAR, 49 YDS, 3 TD and 5 REC, 33 YDS. If the Chiefs were a hardcore punk band they’d be named: Jamaal Charles and the Suckheads.

Randall Cobb – 7 REC, 91 YDS, 3 TD. Nice of McCarthy to remember that Cobb exists. Or maybe he just got confused when he read “Cobb Salad” in his playbook Denny’s Menu. Probably helps that for a team named the Chiefs, they sure defended like Custer.

James Jones – 7 REC, 139 YDS, 1 TD. How is James Jones so good and yet so sh*tty, all at the same time? I feel like he exists on two planes, almost like a buffer, the space in between Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith, if you will.

Eddie Lacy – 10 CAR, 46 YDS and 3 REC, 41 YDS. Unlike Adams, Lacy looked pretty uneffected by his ankle injury. However, McCarthy didn’t really need him that much when Rodgers and his recievers took over the game. So I wonder what McCarthy’s excuse is for all the other games?

Travis Kelce – 6 REC, 80 YDS. It’s very clear that Kelce is Andy Reid’s #1 target (non-food division).

Aaron Rodgers – 24/35, 333 YDS, 5 TD and 2 CAR, 16 YDS. THIS GUY AARON RODGERS, I CALL HIM JOHN CHIVINGTON, BECAUSE HE MASSACRED THE CHIEFS! I feel like my Grudenisms are getting danker with every Monday Night Football post. I look forward to the fall…

Richard Rodgers – 2 REC, 15 YDS. What are the odds of two guys who spell their name “Rodgers” ending up on the same team?

Alex Smith – 24/39, 290 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 5 CAR, 32 YDS, 2 FUM. He was 2/7 at the half. Two for effing seven. How is that even possible in 2015? I hate to say it my friends, but Smith’s MVP season is slipping away from him…

Charcandrick West – (1 TGTS.) Is this his real name or his stripper name?

    standard league. start 2 RB, 2 WR/TE (receivers don’t differentiate) 1 WR/TE/RB.
    palmer
    l.bell/d.lewis/jennings/spiller/crowell/d.johnson (ARI)
    gronk/allen/cooks/t.williams/cruz

    k.williams and r.matthews (MIA) look pretty good to add. who to add first and who are the drops? i gotta think r.matthews comes first. also that there’s no way i get both, maybe not either with a 7th waiver.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: ok, so d.johnson’s upside trumps whatever value spiller might end up with later, and r.matthews isn’t upgrade over those receivers? i’m guessing if i don’t get k.williams i should drop spiller for matthews too or no?

  2. guidedbyvoices says:
    (link)

    “as long as Rodgers doesnt put up 50 pts tonight Im cool”….famous last words.
    I actually had a 46 pt lead going into last night and lost by 1.
    anyway….is Rishard Matthews legit?
    drop D Adams for him?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @guidedbyvoices: ugh… unforeseeable. I like Rishard, but I’d keep Adams.

  3. Wide Right says:
    (link)

    With A.Johnson’s disappearing act.. and Sammy Watkins hurt.. who should I pick up?

    Hurns or Matthews(MIA)?

    Do I drop A.Johnson? I also have Floyd with (ARZ).
    (It’s a PPR League – Start 2WR’s Plus Flex- I have Green, Tate, Watkins as well)

    Also time to drop Seferian-Jenkins for Barnidge? Clay? Cameron? (I have Rudolph as my starter right now)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: go Matthews there. And Clay seems better there.

  4. Packers says:
    (link)

    R. Matthews or K. Wright off waivers, ros.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Packers: Wright… but it’s a coinflip.

  5. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Flex this week Jonathan Stewart or keenan alken or gio bernard or steve smith Sr or john brown

    Also best QB play this week Eli Manning or Phillip Rivers or I could pickup Tyrod Taylor or Andy Dalton.. can you list the qbs in order

    • Dom B says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: who do I drop for who

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: With the offensive line the way it is right now, I’m leaning Dalton, but it depends on Friday’s health report… And I like Allen there.

  6. Jake says:
    (link)

    You guys nailed it this weekend with Rawls not sure which one of you deserve props for that call but awesome job. My problem was that I didn’t add him to my roster but the good news is that he is still available should I make this a priority addition through waivers ?

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jake: That was the almighty Tehol, who is actually really tuned into the Seattle Seahawks. I’m not so sure on that though, Lynch should be back to normal soon. If you are desperate for some depth, it’s not a bad idea.

  7. Butterfield says:
    (link)

    What’s your take on Arian Foster? Is he going to be an RB1 – 2 when he comes back? In my league, his owner has Amendola and Hankerson as WR2 and 3 (with D. Jackson still out). Should I offer him one of Robinson, Allen, Cooks, or Moncrief? I could try to package with Woodhead / Dunbar? Or Cooks / Moncrief for Foster?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Butterfield: He’ll be a RB1, just who knows when he’ll be back. I’d hold on Robinson and Allen. I think everyone else you could try to make a deal with.

      • Butterfield says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Trading Cooks and Moncrief would make me strong at RB (Lacy, Foster, Woodhead) but weak at WR (Robinson, Allen, Randle, C. Johnson) since I need to start 3WR.

        Do you like that trade off?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Butterfield: I’d look to trade one for one in that case.

    • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
      (link)

      @Butterfield: just don’t believe anything foster himself says to media, he claimed it was a sure thing he’d be back by week 2 i believe, and he said that right before week 1. utter b.s.

  8. Help says:
    (link)

    Still not buying in to the James jones love? Obviously can’t keep this pace up but no doubt he’s a key piece to the best offense in football..

    Wondering his value rest of year or if there’s a trade market. I play in a keeper league and I might target and underperforming cheap young guy or just keep this mysterious James jones guy

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Help: I mean, he has a wonderful relationship with Rodgers, but sucks everywhere else. His pace is astounding, hard to see it staying the same, but it would be a nice time to sell high.

      • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
        (link)

        @Jay: makes you wonder if cobb is really any better than like k.wright or somebody in that range.

      • Help says:
        (link)

        @Jay: don’t get me wrong I don’t think James jones the player is all that special, but this James jones the fantasy football player with Aaron Rodgers seems to be more than an illusion. Or maybe I’m just buying into the hype too idk..

        Like mantis said I think this is all Aaron Rodgers. Emmanuel sanders was a nobody until him and peyton hooked up. I’ll never understand these qb/wr romances.

  9. Nick says:
    (link)

    any interest in anquan boldin in a 10-team? someone dropped him & I currently have starting Ty, Amari & Garcon. While bench includes White, Wheaton (dropping for Green-Beckham), Charles Johnson (dropping for Hankerson)…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Eh, I’d rather go for those risk reward guys we’ve been talking about then with Boldin for your bench.

  10. Nick says:
    (link)

    also no love for marvin jones over in Cincy? Suppose DGB, Hank & Joique Bell all more worthy of bench roster spots than Marvin?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Hmm, don’t remember us discussing him. I do like him over Hanky… love the speed.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yep, he was mentioned on my original (lengthy) post, right after Reuben Randle & before Dorial-Green, Lockett, Hanky…anyways, whats your thinking with Roddy, keep him around a bit to see if he becomes relevant due to injury? Same with Tre Mason, keep him in hopes Gurley does not produce as a rookie or injuries hit one of them?? In shallow 10teamer it is tough to roster some of these guys…

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: I think he’s still useful, yeah. I don’t think they’ll throw Gurley out there with volume for a while, so Mason still holds good value. And yeah, 10-team leagues usually have robust rosters…

  11. Kendrick Llama says:
    (link)

    No Maclin love!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Kendrick Llama: Targeted 3 times with 0 receptions in the first 35 minutes or so of regulation. Garbage time was so nice to him.

    • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
      (link)

      @Kendrick Llama: GB defense simply didn’t seem to care much once they were up 31-7. At that point maclin had zero catches.

  12. Scott says:
    (link)

    I had Kaeperpick in one league and was lucky enough to pull Cam off of waivers last week. Whew! Should I drop Kaep now for some high upside rookie like DGB or Davante Parker?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott: Sure, I think you can stream that bye week when you need to. I’d go Parker there.

  13. Steve says:
    (link)

    What do you think about CJ Spiller so far, think it’s ok to drop him? I need to picl up a bye week TE and it’s between CJ and Harvin (return yards league), which do you think is the better drop?

    Also would you pick up Montgomery over Harvin or Knile Davis over Spiller?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve: I didn’t buy into the hype, but I expected a lot more. I think he is droppable. But out of those choices, I’d hold for now.

  14. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Gonna have to dump someone to pick up a defensive player (Kuechly if his head doesn’t explode before Sunday). Who’s the drop:

    R.Jennings or Matt Jones?

    Can’t believe it, but I’m leaning Jennings. These guys are backups to Forte, McCoy, D.Freeman, Woodhead, K.Williams.

    0.5 PPR – 3 point bonus @ 85 yards receiving/100 yards rushing – 6 point bonus @ 135 yards receiving/150 yards rushing

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Yeah, sucks to say, but I think Rashad is the drop there.

  15. e says:
    (link)

    Mariota is on bye, Kaepernick isnt very good.

    How much of my $89 FAAB should I use on Tyrod Taylor?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @e: 10-ish sounds reasonable.

  16. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    What side do you like, Jay?

    Luck/L Murray/J Brown or Rivers/Forte/d Adams

    PPR

    Thanks

    — are you rolling with my Owen Daniels or richard Rodgers this week? I have gates returning week 5, but was thinking of dropping Rodgers.

    Available TE’s Ladarius green, Ben Watson, Josh hill, Charles Clay, Larry donnel, Dwayne Allen is a free agent too.

    Thanks bud! Keep up the great work

    • Bobby's world says:

      @Bobby’s world:

      Ty Montgomery is there too

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby’s world: I’d add Jones for Hurns. Maybe the Chiefs defense there. To be honest, I don’t want much to do with any of those.

      And thanks!

      • Bobby's world says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Thanks for the response man!

        Thoughts on the week 4 TE? Do you like either Owen Daniels or rich rodgers? Daniels faves Vikings D & Rich Rod faces niners D.

        Charles Clay is available he faces giants D

        Dwayne Allen is available & faces jags D

        Ben Watson/ Josh hill fave Cowboys D

        • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
          (link)

          @Bobby’s world: that’s gonna be clay, and allen might still be out giving fleener some upside, but unlike last week when i dropped clay for fleener don’t do that.

    (link)

    Kudos to Charles for having the TD night he did but I think I lost a little respect for him considering his team was getting THUMPED and he’s out there doing the discount double check mockery and all. If he does it a few more times, I’m gonna put him in the category of WR’s like Golden Taint who make huge deals of first down plays while down 20pts in a game and pass rushers who dance like circus clowns after a 4th quarter sack after getting ran through like diarrhea the rest of the game.

    Jay,

    CJ has single highhandedly put me in an 0-3 hole to start the year. 12 team PPR league, looking to add 2 of these guys (waiver wire pending):

    Rishard Matthews, CJ2K, Dunbar, Chris Thompson, Rawls, anyone else that will get 5+ points…

    Matthews is the top target as of now, which of the other group do you like most?

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: Probably CJ2K while he’s getting volume. Seems silly though that this guy can still walk.

    Just saw you recommended DeVante Parker over DGB, is that correct? I did not bother mentioning DeVante in potential pickups as I thought DGB, M Jones, Hankerson all have more value going forward…should I look at D Parker over Hank or DGB though?

    Good article man! I drafted Adams and refused to pick up Jones. Ef this fantasy football thing. That said, how do you rank these RBs ROS: M. Jones, K. Williams, D. Freeman, and R. Mathews. Do you think Mathews takes over RB duties in philly?

    • Jay

    (link)

    waivers time
    1. dynasty 14 team standard, with t.smith/m.jones as WR #4 and #5 and super flex league. return yards 25 per pt, scrimmage 15 per pt and QB really overvalued, making me keep all of palmer/foles/hoyer/mallett (in case mallett loses it back). start 2 WR and a regular flex as well.
    drop either for ginn (apparently #1 WR now). also have cooks/dez/aj green.

    2. with SD’s O-Line troubles drop Lambo for any of Novak (HOU), Franks, Sturgis (PHI), hocker?

    3. 20 team league PPR with 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 flex that can be a TE. return yards worth 50 per pt.
    rivers, tygod
    l.bell, hyde, sims, taliaferro, d.thomas (return yds)
    hopkins, wheaton, colston, aiken, m.wilson, d.thomas
    escobar, gates
    drop wilson or aiken for norwood or t.montgomery?

  31. Mantis Toboggan MD says:
    (link)

    PPR with .1 pts per return yard (so wheaton and spiller were supposed to be big deals, now neither does return yards, wheaton probably goes back to it once bryant is back though). start 2 WR, 2 RB 1 flex.
    forte, vereen, ellington, spiller, jennings
    landry, edelman, wallace, wheaton, roddy
    h.miller, gates

    drop roddy and/or wheaton (and which first) for hurns, ginn (return and appears to be starting now with so many injuries), beasley, d.thomas (returns),montgomery, quick. what’s best order?
    2. drop any of those RB for any of d.thomas, andrews, mcluster, powell, sims?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: Drop Wheaton for Thomas and deal a TE for something you need in a few weeks. 2. Drop Spiller for shit. Damn, just hold there.

      • Mantis Toboggan MD says:
        (link)

        @Jay: sims has shown some decent stats (esp considering he’s a backup on a bad team), but if spiller gets usage, or goes back to return work he’d be very useful. nobody is trading me for h.miller. They’ve all drafted 2 TE’s and i was lucky to grab him in like the 3rd to last round. Only thing they’d give up is maybe a TE who will be slightly better in like 2 weeks, but by then i’ll have gates mowing up yards (not unlike the real stephen king story lawnmower man, which had nothing to do with the weird sci fi movie of same name, which king was paid for just due to using his name and the title) hopefully.

        • Mantis Toboggan MD says:

            (link)

            @Mantis Toboggan MD: I think he’s still useful, the Cowboys were just refusing to cover Julio Jones for some reason. If you’re going for upside though, Hurns is the guy.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Mantis Toboggan MD: Ah, I hear you, but Thomas should be owned if there’s that much demand. Maybe he’d be the trade bait when he comes back.

    Bench: Palmer, A. Johnson, Decker, Stewart, Eifert, Crowell, Woodhead

    Waivers: Dunbar, Marvin Jones, Reed

    Would you swap any of these waiver guys with players on my bench?

    Thanks!

      @Ron: No, I’d hold for now.

    PPR with .05 pts per return yard. gotta find a TE for this week with walker out. start 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex.
    brees/kaep
    forsett/ivory/yeldon/gordon/duke johnson
    a.brown/evans/cruz/benjamin/roddy
    walker/green

    Already throwing Kaep away for one of Carr/wacco for flacco (that order)
    1. dropping green for one of gillmore/donell/fleener or just hold green to see if he plays vs CLE, 27th vs TE’s this year?
    2. dropping roddy for one of m.jones/ginn/montgomery/DGB/britt (is that order about right)?
    4. guessing overall order of these waiver claims should be QB/WR/TE? QB first in case Brees comes back looking like he did before, or not at all.

      @Crapshoot Kershaw: gillmore out, so i’m guessing maxx W moves up but not as high as donnell/fleener. might be worth finding out now about green’s status before making move here. funny as this was the last league i’m in that gillmore isn’t owned in.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Crapshoot Kershaw: 1. For Gillmore. He’s not going to play, and if he does, he won’t do much at this point. 2. Jones. 4. Sure, you almost have to.

      • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so hold roddy over those others than jones.

    You think Alfred Morris should be dropped for karlos Williams?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Clos: Naw, I’d hold.

    PPR – Freeman or Abdullah??

  36. Dom B says:

    My QBs Phillip Rivers and Eli Manning. So there is Andy Dalton and Tyrod Taylor… For ROY who do you like best and who do I drop

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: I’d drop Manning for Taylor at this point. I’m holding on Rivers there because it’s the Browns.

        @Barker: Coleman for Williams makes some sense.

      @Barker: I think Coleman might be, but Adams isn’t.

  38. Help says:

    What Sides would you be on:

    martavis Bryant/Justin Forsett for aj green (keeper league). Guy is starting Crowell and sankey (not like forsett has been much better)

    Justin Forsett/James jones/garcon for joe randle/Ty Hilton

    Pierre garcon for dmc?

      @Help: garcon side of DMC trade is ridiculous.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Help: Green side with that keeper tag. And hold on Garcon for DMC, but I like that Hilton trade.

    (link)

    keep duke johnson in PPR or grab andrews for RB #5 when i can only play 2. also have forsett, yeldon, ivory, gordon.

  40. hello says:
    (link)

    couple trade ideas to run by you:

    1) trade justin forsett/ martellus bennet/ garcon and get greg olson, arian foster

    2) trade justin forsett/brandon marshall get jeremy hill/ deandre hopkins

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @hello: I’d do 1 and 2. I like 1 slightly more, especially if PPR.

  41. jaydog says:

    I like the write up, but McCarthy has not been calling the plays all season. Clements took over this season. McCarthy won’t be able to call bad plays anymore. Cobb is also getting healthy so hence the increased useage.

    .5 PPR keeper league

    QB-Aaron Rodgers
    WR-Jordan Matthews, Jarvis Landry
    RB- DeMarco Murray, Latavius Murray
    TE- Greg Olsen
    FLEX- Steve Smith
    Bench- Bilal Powell, Thomas Rawls, Mike Evans, James Jones, Antonio Gates, Michael Crabtree
    IR- Jordy
    K-Tucker
    DEF- Broncos

    What is your take on stashing LaFell? And you think Cruz is worth the add? Or should I get Alfred Blue since I’m a little thin at RB with DeMarco banged up?

    Other FAs available I like- Rueben Randle, Antonio Andrews, Percy Harvin

    What move/moves should I make?

    Sorry, too many questions

    Thanks so much man!
    Ryan

    • ryanoger says:

      @ryanoger:

      Ronnie Hillman and Duke Johnson are also FAs (forgot to add them into the mix)

    standard league with 6 keepers. 6 max RB and WR. 2 flexes that can be TE, start 3 RB, 3 WR
    rivers/dalton/rodfather
    mccoy/ingram/hyde/k.davis/sankey/bush
    julio/allen/a.robinson/cruz/royal/jordy (IR)
    gates (IR)/cameron/olsen
    1. drop royal for any of (what order): hurns, ginn, hankerson, britt, quick
    2. drop sankey for any and what order of: taliaferro, mccluster, andrews, DMC, rawls

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:

      @A Wesley Snipes Life: in 1 add cruz, he sounds like he may have made whatever ailed him much worse practicing today.

      • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
        (link)

        @A Wesley Snipes Life: i ended up with getting hankerson and hurns, which means i’m now very connected to both the ATL and JAX passing games, and really have double handcuffed myself to their Julio/A Rob backups in Hank/Hurns and this week am likely starting
        1 of rivers/rodfather/dalton (had been only rivers till now)
        bush/hyde/ingram
        a.rob/allen/julio
        olsen
        flexes hurns/hankerson
        keeping K.davis (still waiting for that charles injury)/cameron (vs NYJ)/sankey on bye/mccoy (finally getting the off time he needed back in week 1, man coaches are stupid) on bench.

  44. Dom B says:

    Would you trade steve smith for CJ Anderson. 10 man standard league.

    My Roster
    QB Phillip Rivers
    RB Leveon Bell
    RB Latavius Murray
    WR Julio Jones
    WR AJ Green
    TE Jason Witten
    Flex Keenan Allen
    Benah
    QB Eli Manning
    RB Jonathan Stewart
    RB Gio Bernard
    WR Steve Smith Sr
    WR John Brown
    TE Crockett Gilmore

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:

      @Dom B: in a 10 man league i’m guessing it’s easier to find (or already have) decent RB’s to fill in. You could at least wait till anderson is healthy and doesn’t look terrible. in one 10 man league i have all of
      coleman/foster/murray (the good one that didn’t cost 3 or so rounds too much, same as you)/forsett/charles
      WR allen rob/julio/sanders/bryant (PIT)/moncrief
      bennett
      QB brady (1 day before suspension was lifted draft)/rodfather

  45. Wide Right says:

    So why the heck not.. he was available to I picked up Vick.

    Do I start him over Stafford (vs a tough D) and the disaster that was Kaepernick last week (even though a lot of sites think Kaep will do well against the Packers)

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: don’t need three guys if one of them is kaep. just drop kaep for something more useful.
