I honestly can’t tell you why the Steelers are getting the Sunday Night Football treatment, it’s like this is 2008 or something, especially on a day where there was a rematch of 48 (XXLLVXLIIIX32jlsg84dfg as the Romans called it). But we get to see Big Ben HARF HARF HARF his way through a game against Cam Netwon and his wonder ribs. Which makes me hungry for ribs. Much was said in the preseason about how Cam Newton’s receiver core was a downgrade. I believed the talk a little bit, seeing as how he didn’t have an eligible receiver join the team up until a few months ago. All kidding aside, I wouldn’t say that the receiver corps has downgraded too much, and Greg Olsen is still there to make my projections pee a little, so really, I would call Carolina an average to an above average NFL football team. Which means the Steelers should only lose by, like, four touchdowns…

 

Drinking Game

Note: I’ll be shaking things up a bit, and doing a wine night with a shiraz via Yellow Tail. Two bottles of it, mind you.

Take one sip of wine if…

You hear Al Michaels say “YUUUUGGGEEE”.

Roethlisberger pump fakes the defense.

A Steelers running back runs for more than 3 yards.

The camera focuses on Brett Keisel’s beard.

NBC promos one of their sh*tty shows.

The camera focuses on Troy Polamalu’s hair.

Finish your glass if…

If there is a Superman celebration.

Mike Tolbert dances.

Greg Olsen’s personal life is outlined.

Roethlisberger pump fakes the defense and then fumbles the ball because he pumped too much.

 

Totally Legitimate Game Prediction:

Steelers – 20+ Antonio Brown fantasy points for the love of all that is holy.

Panthers – 18 hip gyrations via Mike Tolbert dancing.

    we trusting this end of season story for woodhead? i could drop him now for d.will and later put in claim for taliaferro (in other good news, thanks for recommending taliaferro, since i have him in one dynasty, and literall got beat to him by less than 1 minute (the pickup was the same minute as me) in another dynasty. i was going to drop freeman. drat that having to take a piss)

      @goodfold2: Yeah, all the San Diego sources are reporting it now. He’s safe to drop. And any time.

    jump from freeman to sankey/blue? (this is in dynasty 14 teamer where i failed (with under a minute) to grab taliaferro dropping freeman). i have a lot of other young future RB (hyde/ellington/michael), just stashed peterson here too.

      @goodfold2: I’d like to know what’s going on with Foster, but Blue seems like a good idea.

        @Jay: sankey finally got used as well today, first time for that.

          @goodfold2: Yeah, nice to see as well. He’s had ball control issues in the past, but I’m not sure what to think of the Titans offense right now.

    I need 20 points from Greg Olsen…I will switch my faith to any deity that can deliver this. You hear me gods? ANY. DEITY.

    Also screw you Keenan Allen. I hate you so much. I just want 8-10 fantasy points from you on game day. Is that too much to ask for??? Apparently it is.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Ryan: Should have started D Thomas. 3.40>2.80.

      Greg Olsen could do that in PPR. PPR?

      • Ryan says:
        (link)

        @Jay: No PPR :-( League voted against it this year sadly.

        Also…now need 25 points from Olsen courtesy of this Broncos drive that is currently happening(he has Sanders). This isn’t looking very promising. So if Olsen can get like 80 yards and 3 touchdowns we could make this work…ugh.

          @Ryan: Goin to OT. And yeah, NonPPR… uh, it could happen. (Probably not.)

            @Jay: haha ya probably not. I can dream though!!!

              @Ryan: Trust me, I’m dreaming on that too.

    Lost your homie Woodhead. Who’s the pickup: Asiata or Taliaferro? 0.5 PPR with some bonuses in there, too

      Jay says:

      @Wilsonian: I like Talia for the upside gamble.

  5. Matt says:

    Time to start lowering Keenan Allen’s expectations? This matchup was supposed to be his breakout and he SUCKED!

    Also, someone in my league dropped Ryan Matthews should I stash him for when he returns? Problem is I can only drop like Fred Jackson or Pierre Thomas. Its a PPR where my RB’s are those 2 along with Forte, Joique Bell and Ellington.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Matt: I’d still be patient here. And I would stash, but I don’t think you can afford it right now. I’m okay dropping Jackson normally, but that’s hard to do after a game like today’s.

    I had RG3 go down and need a QB …… I can get Bortles, they want an RB or TE …… I have demarco Murray, forte, a. Bradshaw, kno Moreno at RB and Greg Olsen and Dwayne Allen at TE…… I haven’t played ffb in a while so I’m oblivious to trade values, please help.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Honestly, I would not trade any of those guys for Bortles. You should stream from here on out until you find one that sticks.

      • Rick Dempsey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: every single starting QB is already owned. I had Henne as a backup.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Rick Dempsey: I would target someone a bit more stable. If it is Bortles, maybe Moreno there if you’re desperate.

    GREG MOTHERF*CKING OLSEN!!!!!!! Only 53 more yards and a touchdown PLEASE! haha.

        @Jay: I blame Kelvin Benjamin for stealing my friend(not really my friend) Greg Olsen’s last touchdown.

        Oh well. On to next week!
