As the title states (as do the numbers) we are back to kicking ass and chewing bubble gum. And boy am I out of bubble gum. In last week’s rankings post, I mentioned that we would be putting forth a new process for ranking players (or I guess in this case, returning to my original process), and the results were telling. Small sample size (that’s what she said) will always been an issue, but I think the numbers produced were promising, and I’ll be keeping with the same methodology to better serve your Fantasy Football Teams. Here are your Week 4 Rankings…

    Just wondering why ranked chargers DST so low?
    Cleve at home
    Both CB should he back
    Thx!

      @Mike: Hah, I’d just scrolled down to ask the same thing. I’m rolling with them this week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Mike: I’m still mulling that one. Not sure if I’m trying to over compensate my homerism or getting too cute with it.

      They have zero pass rush right now, have had trouble stopping the run, and their offensive line is in shambles, meaning less runs, less possession time, and ultimately having the defense on the field more.

      • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
        (link)

        @Jay: this sounds like it’s very good for their IDP’s though.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Crapshoot Kershaw: It’s a fair point, especially for Weddle, who’s the most likely to be owned.

          • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
            (link)

            @Jay: in deep leagues i’m wondering if a bunch of unranked guys should start to have value, as yeah, weddle isn’t just obtainable.

  2. Mike says:

    Need upside at WR
    If Watkins is out..would u play Percy harvin over Stevie Johnson or Marvin jones?
    I also like Ty Montgomery
    Thx!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I have Johnson right now, but Harvin isn’t far behind, but Jones is still ahead of him. Sheer upside? I actually think Jones might be that guy.

  3. Jerry says:
    (link)

    Hey, Jay! David Johnson, Rawls or Artis Payne for ros? Who do you think will carry the most value?
    Also, Bortles, Alex Smith, Kap, Vick or Fitzpatrick as a backup to Tannenhill?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: I’d say Johnson, and then back him up with Kap.

  4. Jerry says:
    (link)

    Jay, I also forgot to mention that Riddick and Blue are also avaialable on waivers as well for Rbs.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: Hmm, still like Johnson there.

      • Re-Pete says:
        (link)

        @Jay: That’s what she said

  5. jcg says:
    (link)

    I’ve got a lot of RB depth and I think maybe a good time to sell high on Randle. Any advice on a good target to deal for? I like Moncrief a lot but would Randle be too much to give?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @jcg: I think that’d be a bit much. Maybe target someone like a Julian Edelmin? See if anyone bites on a the WR1/2 zone.

  6. E says:
    (link)

    Need to fill my w/te spot this week.

    Charles clay is available. Should I drop davonte Parker for him? Been hearing some encouraging signs about him.

    I could also drop Charles sims, Victor Cruz, and Julis Thomas (Jordan Reed is my other te)

    Thanks

    • Chicken Dinner says:
      (link)

      @E: Cruz is done.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @E: Drop Cruz for now, he had another setback with his quad.

  7. Relsh says:
    (link)

    Someone just dropped Sammy Watkins in my 10-man standard, $18 was too much to guarantee myself the pickup?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Relsh: No, I think that sounds rational. I still like Watkins a lot.

    Foster Gore
    Flex: Jstew
    Delanie
    bench: ARob, Jbrown, Dion Lewis, Matt jones, bilal, taliaferro, Dunbar, cook (te bye fill in)

    Trade Jstew for a Evans/Hilton/Keenan? Or keep RB depth

    • Zandy says:

      @Zandy: Sorry jay! Copied the roster from a Tehol post. My bad bud

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @Zandy: No worries at all. What’d he say about it?

        • Zandy says:
          (link)

          @Jay: he thought Jstew ARob and Jbrown seemed like a lot for evans

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: If you can get any of those three, I’d do it.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: would you

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: would you Rather send ARob and Jstew for Dhop?

        • Zandy says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: sorry I’m posting like an idiot today.

          The question is Jstew for Keenan or Jstew ARob for Dhop?

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @Zandy: sorry another idea- Jstew ARob Jbrown MattJones for jhill?

              @Zandy: I think that’s too much.

          • Jay

            Jay says:
            (link)

            @Zandy: I’d do JStew for Keenan.

            • Zandy says:
              (link)

              @Jay: what about send Foster for Evans and ivory?

                (link)

                @Zandy: I’m okay with this as well.

  9. G says:
    (link)

    Hey man,

    PPR, one flex. What’s yoir thoughts on trading my Ellington and one of Torri Smith/Mike Wallace/Crowell for his Dion Lewis and Rashard Mathews? My Rbs are Leveon Bell, Ellington, David Johnson, Alfred Morris, Isaiah Crowell, and Ryan Mathews. My WRs are Calvin, AJ, Kendall Wright, Wallace, Hurns, and Torri Smith. Thanks man

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @G: I’m okay with that, but I’d hold if it were me and see if Ellington can rebuild some value.

  10. Sam says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    Start Yeldon, Gurley or Watkins in my flex? Leaning Yeldon, what’re your thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Sam: I agree.

  11. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, 2 tough decisions this week, have Peyton as my standard QB but just picked up T Taylor for bye-week 7 filler v. Jags..Taylor is up against the Giants terrible secondary this week so I’m debating starting him over Peyton but do not want to get ‘cute’…secondly, J Thomas looks to be back for this week (he is my backup) but have to roll Bennett against a weak Oakland D against the TE position, right?

    Last thing, start Garcon at WR3 behind Ty & Amari or roll out the shiny new toy in Marvin Jones? Bench is much stronger now with Jones, Tre, Joique, J Thomas, Hanky & Taylor…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I think Bennett is fine there, but Clausen does give me some pause. What did Tehol say about Taylor? I have them back-to-back in my rankings, so I’ll endorse either. It wouldn’t be too cute there.

    .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?

    Other FAs available I like- Duke Johnson, Rueben Randle, Antonio Andrews, Percy Harvin, Ronnie Hillman

    What move/moves should I make?

    Thanks so much man!
    Ryan

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: Stay away from Cruz, he had another setback. I think Crabtree and LaFell are essentially the same thing, so it’s a preference thing.

      • ryanoger says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        You like any of these available FAs over my guys above?

        Duke Johnson, Rueben Randle, Antonio Andrews, Percy Harvin, Ronnie Hillman

        With DeMarco banged up not sure if I should role with Powell or Rawls or pick up a FA from that list to slot in? Or just roll with DeMarco if he’s playing?

        thanks jay

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @ryanoger: I’d stick with what you’ve got. I would say Hillman over Rawls, but not sure if that’s necessary.

  13. Lex says:
    (link)

    Thanks for the rankings!!… in a standard 10 team scoring league which is the better pair…Ingram and cobb or Abdullah and cooper (not Riley lol)….I was offered the latter for my Ingram and cobb….Basically two proven scorers for two rookies who have the potential to outscore them.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Lex: I’d rather have Cobb side. Nice potential on the other side, and if it was a keeper, It’d be different.

  14. S.H says:
    (link)

    Jay. I have E.Sanders , R.Randle ,P.Dorsett,K.Wright,B.Coleman as my Wr’s. Would be pick up Britt, Hankerson or Shorts, instead of any of my wr.?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @S.H: I think the group you have is fine.

  15. Adam says:
    (link)

    If Adams is out..would u start TY Montgomery at flex?
    Other choices are Marvin Lewis and Percy Harvin
    Thx
    Standard league

    • Chicken Dinner says:
      (link)

      @Adam: Harvin. Watkins is out.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Adam: Did you mean Marvin Jones? If so, Jones.

    • Lex says:
      (link)

      @Adam: I’d go lewis

      • Lex says:
        (link)

        @Lex: Jones I mean

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Lex: Yeah, then Jones.

  16. P says:
    (link)

    Not a week 4 relevant question – would you drop Sankey and pick up Andrews in a 14 team ppr? I’m solid but on the weaker side with RB; Sankey has been on my bench anyway for the last couple of weeks. Thanks as always!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @P: Hmm, in a deep league like that, I still think it’s worth holding onto Sankey there.

    Hey Jay,

    Great work, thanks so much for these rankings!

    Quick question: In a vaccum who would you want ROS, Lesean Mccoy or Jeremy Hill?

    Thanks for any help, keep up the good work!

  18. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    Yo Jay! Who do you like better ROS? PPR

    Vereen or Spiller?

    Howdy Jay

    I’m keeping an eye on this philly/Washington game due to hurricane Joaquin, if it’s postponed or bad weather wise, drop Eagles D for one of these?

    Colts D who face jags

    Chargers D who face Browns

    Raiders D @ Chicago if it’s still clausen

  22. Butterfield says:
    (link)

    Which side do you like: Hillman and Adams or Dunbar, R. Randle, and D. Parker?

  23. UltraKzilla says:
    (link)

    Dalton or Tyrod if Watkins sits?

    I’ve got Stewart and Hyde, I’m having a tough time starting Hyde over Stewart with their respective expected game scripts.

  24. Lamar Killed My Vibe says:

    10 team .25 ppr I have:
    Qb-Ryan
    Rb-Le’veon
    Rb-Gordon
    Wr-Julio
    Wr-Hopkins
    Te-Cameron
    Flex-Woodhead
    Bench-Allen Robinson
    Bench-Lamar Miller
    Bench-Matt Jones
    Bench- M. Bryant
    Bench-David Johnson

    Just reassessing now that we have some games under way besides TE anywhere I should be trying to address or do I look good so far?

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Lamar Killed My Vibe: I think it’s good. Bell being back certainly helps since Miller has been trash. I’d just stream TE’s if Cameron becomes a weight, but otherwise, I think you’re fine.

  25. JohnnyBeGood says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay! thanks in advance…

    1) In PPR, Need 3 to start out of these 6: Cooks, Moncrief, K Williams, Bernard, Hill, CJ Anderson

    IDP League, I picked up Fletcher Cox to fill in for Ninkovich this week. Now it turns out I need a WR because Sammy is out. I’ve got Martavis and Cruz on my bench. Do I drop one of them or Ninkovich?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott: Probably Cruz, he had another set back.

  29. Kevin says:

    What up Jay,

    I was offered latavius murray and david johnson for my matt jones and karlos williams.

    my other RBs are forte, Frank gore, and abdullah. i feel like i could get more from the trade. some players he has: shady mcCoy, cj anderson, moncrief, sammy watkins, steve smith sr.

    thanks in advance, Jay.

      @Kevin: *12 team yahoo standard.

    • Brandon

      Brandon says:

      @Kevin: I’m no Jay, but I would say take that. I like Latavius a lot more than M Jones and KWilliams.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: I’d take that deal. If you want more, you could try to see what McCoy’s price is at.

  30. Nico says:
    (link)

    Should I trade Hopkins and Allen Robinson for Julio Jones in .5 ppr, start 3 wr? My bench wr I would have to start would be colston or hurns.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nico: Yes.

  31. Wallpaper Paterson says:
    (link)

    I can start 3 RBs.

    Peterson is a lock.

    My other possibilities are Karlos Williams, Crowell, Bilal Powell and Forsett. Which 2 should I start?

    • Lex says:
      (link)

      @Wallpaper Paterson: Williams and forsett….forsett has to break out sooner or later

      • Wallpaper Paterson says:
        (link)

        @Jay: okay thanks

  32. dom says:
    (link)

    looks like you’re the low guy on DeAndre Hopkins, is that because Atlanta’s pass D is ranked 4th? Because I feel like that’s skewed by Weeden playing like Weeden against them last week. I need to pick 3 out of Hopkins, Steve Smith, L Fitzgerald, and B Marshall and the last 3 are literally right next to each other on every ranking I’ve seen, in almost every order except Fitz being last.

    So I think Fitz is a clear start, and I thought Hopkins was a clear start but you have him behind the others.

    I’m concerned about Decker’s return eating into Marshall’s targets this week and I feel like Steve Smith has gotta draw extra defensive attention at some point.

    • dom says:
      (link)

      @dom: PPR btw

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @dom: I think Decker will be brought back slowly. I’m just bearish on the entire Texans pass attack right now.
