This seems like a match-up made more for Thursday Night Football, in that, the potential derp is strong with this game… but people forget Sunday Night Football derp can be equally as, if not more entertaining. TNF merely adopted the derp; SNF was born in it, molded by it. Clearly, the New York Giants offense is improving on a week-by-week basis, with Eli Manning not looking this good since the epoch of Coughlin face being level 8 red. Not the level 18 it is lately. Much of that credit goes to Ben McAdoo, despite having the name: Ben McAdoo. The Eagles are 4-1, but have looked inconsistently innovative. Also, Riley Cooper still looks like a racist. And, if you want my fair analysis, it’s my expert opinion that both those issues can be blamed on Nick Foles, who, coming off such a robust 2013 27 touchdown performance, has regressed a bit this season. (I’m kidding, it’s not really his fault. The tempo clock is probably it.) But that’s okay, because LeSean McCoy has already dried up my tear ducts and is now on pace for producing that ever elusive ulcer WebMD has been warning me about since college. But if there’s one thing for certain, a NFC East prime-time game is always historic. Not moon-landing historic… probably more Titanic historic here. So get your drinks and pastry snacks (AKA pizza) ready…

 

Drinking Game

Note: I’ll be doing Kona’s Island Lager for the beer portion, and Black Label for the shots portion.

Take one sip of beer if…

The play clock, during an Eagles possession, actually gets under 15 seconds before the ball is snapped.

The Giants get into the redzone and end up settling for a field goal.

The words innovative, tempo, or revolutionary are used to describe Chip Kelly’s offense

You see a Giants defensive player put up his hands in confusion.

Take one shot of liquor if…

Eliface happens.

Coughlin is chewing gum, cocks his sideways, and puts his hands on his hips.

Totally Legitmate Game Prediction

Giants – 10 (the amount of receptions Victor Cruz should get minimum. YOU HEAR ME MCADOOOOSH?)

Eagles – 5 (the total amount of yardage gained by LeSean McCoy the past three games.)

    Hey Jay, thanks for all the advice so far this season! In my 10 team (non-ppr) league for $500, I’m looking at a tie for first place with a win this week (down 115-118 but have Williams/Cruz/Dawson – opponent only has Crabtree left)

    Anyways, Hillman was dropped to waivers so I’m debating on using a waiver however I don’t know that I have anyone to drop, team looks like this;

    QB-Rodgers
    WR-Cobb, Edelman, Cruz, Sanu, Beckham, A Johnson
    RB-Murray, R. Jennings, Williams, McKinnon, Ingram, Matthews
    TE- Witten
    D-Detroit
    K-Dawson

    Do you see anyone droppable for Hillman? I don’t…also, Jordan Reed & Tim Wright are available too, either of them worth grabbing as a backup/bye week fill for Witten?

      @Nick: correction, I’ll be tied for first! Thanks again Jay!

      @Nick: Jeremy Hill Is also available..

      @Nick: No problem, and keep it going!

      I’d hold for now, you have a strong team with solid depth, I don’t think you need Hillman. Wait on the Cruz injury to find out what’s going on. He may be your drop for a TE.

    Should I add Andre Holmes for Kendall Wright

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dom B: I’m iffy with that. Raiders always play the Chargers well, and they came out strong, responding to the coaching change at home. Let’s wait another game and see how the volume gets handed out.

    is lacy a buy low or someone to avoid? thinking of sending bradshaw and lamar for him

      @Zandy: I like that trade for you. I’m still on the Lacy train, even though it’s a sucky train right now.

    Would you trade vjax hillman for Marshall?

    • Jay

      @Exactly: In a heartbeat.

    Alternatively: vjax hillman Bradshaw for Charles gerhart?

    you say inconsistently innovative, i say innovatively inconsistent for mccoy to have so many bad weeks and now this.
    – in return yardage (.1pt per yard) league, patterson was supposed to be a top 5 round pick due to return yards, now he appears to be hurt, but still playing hurt. In non-return yard leagues i’m sure patterson should have been dropped 1-2 weeks ago, but in this type league i’m guessing just benching is still appropriate? Landry has more return yards and is starting to actually be used on offense, and his QB isn’t as bad as MIN’s (even in a ponderless time the guy wearing purple can be completely awful)

      @goodfold2: You might be right!

      Keep him around for now.

    What does Cruz’s injury do for randle and odb? Wr1/2 and wr2 respectively?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: It certainly brings them to that level. But what a terrible game for them tonight.

    Is Cruz done for the year!? I can’t believe I jus traded WAllace for Cruz/A Johnson, grr! Now I gotta hope Andre can pick it up…looks like potentially dropping Cruz for Hillman, right? (If Cruz is down for season)

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: A Holmes is also available although in a 10team non-ppr, I dunno if he is stash worthy…

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Nick: with no waivers lock, I need to make moves FAST…grab A Holmes, dropping Cruz in a 10team non ppr…or hold out & see if I can get Hillman via waivers? (someone dropped him)…my roster is listed above in the first comment for reference

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Yeah, make that move, hope for the best. It was pretty gruesome, I’d be surprised if he’s not placed on the IR by tomorrow.

            @Jay: dude did his owners a favor not having to worry about starting him anymore. like the favor fielder did this year vs c.davis.

                @Jay: i mean from a purely fantasy baseball sense. i’m sure those helped out lots of people with lots of other things.

      @Nick: Looks like he’s done. Yeah, I’d think so.

    in that 20 teamer dynasty league where i’m the WAS maroonly-human-dermis-colored football team with this offensive lineup
    cousins/RG3
    morris/helu/taliaferro/peterson/michael/sims (IR)
    garcon/d-jax/roberts/austin/lee
    donnell/reed/ASJ
    zuerlein
    had another 2 IDP injuries today (amerson concussion/trevathan knee), had 2 last week too (one of those guys came back already), only had been using 3 bench spots for IDP’s. With both Reed and ASJ healthy drop Donnell? I’ve been fielding trade offers for Donnell for a couple of weeks, the best one i got was for Rainey. We have a flex spot so i could use 2 of the TE’s. we start 1 RB/ 2 WR/ 1 TE/ 1 Flex.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: I think you can do better than Rainey. You don’t need Donnell, but I’d expect something better. At least a Sankey or something. Could just be me though.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: that’s what i thought too, and i’m thinking he’s got least upside for future (since he was absolutely unknown just over a month ago), so probably 1st one dropped of those 3. I obviously could also drop austin/lee/taliaferro too but those guys probably are more talented than donnell.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: True, but opportunity is what matters here.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Jay: tailaferro and donnell too much for sankey? whole idea is to make a roster spot and get value.

    Should I pick up Malcolm Floyd from the chargers to drop Kendall wright

  11. Dom B says:
    (link)

    should I do this trade first here is my roster at QB Aaron Rodgers RB Andre Ellington, Eddie Lacy, Doug Martin, and Fred Jackson WR Kelvin Benjamin, Roddy White, Michael Crabtree, ty Hilton, Kendall Wright, and at TE Delaine Walker and Jordan Cameron should I do the trade me sending Jordan Cameron and he send Percy Harvin

  12. Dom B says:

    Or should I do I try to do the trade Jordan Cameron and Michael Crabtree for megatron if he accepts
