Greetings! What an exceptional birthday week I just received! I’d like to start by thanking the Elder Gods with continuing to bless me with great health (physically, anyways), and I’d like to thank the big boss Jay(Wrong), for giving me a day off to fully soak in the reality that I am no longer flexible enough to shave my own ass. Yoga it is! What a wonderful place to meet open-minded women! Anyways, I’m a year older, a year wiser, and a WHOLE LOT better at projecting NFL players’s production… hopefully… maybe… okay, so probably not, but I can still have an awesome time trying! Big daddy needs to hit the gym, so let’s get to players I like and dislike this week, aaaaahkay?

I am Tehol Beddict and this is Start Em’, Sit Em’! Take heed!

Fantasy Football Rankings powered by FantasyPros

 

Start ’em

Colin Kaepernick – I know, I know, EVERYONE and dey momma likes Kaepernick this week and Beddict is going to tell you why. First off, the 49ers are beyond desperate to get a win and they’re playing at home. Secondly, the Ravens ranks 24th in pass defense and 16th in run defense, and guess what? Kaepernick can do both of those things, especially when competing against sub-par competition. The Gabbert watch won’t begin for at least a few more weeks, and thank the Gods for that.

Peyton Manning – Okay Peyton, the Browns are missing both Joe Haden and Tashuan Gibson, so if you can’t give us 250 yards and 3 Tubs against these jokers, I’m fully ready to write you off completely. The duck king is officially in his last season as far as I’m concerned, and if he doesn’t get it turned around soon, the Broncos coaching staff has to seriously consider benching him. Forced retirement, you taste so goooood.

Dion Lewis/LaGarrette Blount – Not only is Indy 22nd in run defense, but, uhhhhhh, they have no talent on defense, so I fully expect the Patriots to aggressively force the Colts defense to deep throat this fire and ice combo all day long. Has the name “Icy Hot” been taken? You ever accidentally got that stuff on your scrotum? You should totally check it out some time if not.

 

DeAndre Hopkins – My number one receiver for the week is facing the Jags, a teamed ranked 21st in pass defense, and frankly I’m shocked they’re ranked that high. Jacksonville is basically a J.V. team going against the varsity every week, and a cleaning of house is direly needed. Hoyer has a problem feeding his elite weapons, as we witnessed what he did with Josh Gordon a few years back. Yeah, remember that guy!? Jacksonville is the Christian Slater of the NFL; No, not because they’re terrible and have been trash for seemingly countless years and have no almost no hope of ever being relevant, but because nobody respects them.

Alshon Jeffery – Lookie here, ya’ll; if Alshon is playing after sitting what seems the entire season, then I’m assuming he has zero limitations. Soooooo, that means that Jeffery absolutely needs to be ranked in every FantasyPros ranker’s top-15 or I’m revoking your credentials! Please don’t make me do you like Caine did Chauncey! I meeeeean, he’s going against a Detroit defense that has completely laid down on their coaching staff and fans. Maybe I need to put Jeffery in my top-8. “Beddict, is you serious”? You know it!

Zach Ertz – The Giants have been hit with more bombs than Saddam Hussein’s crib, and I’m calling for Ertz, Philadelphia’s second leading receiver, to score his first touchdown of the season.

Sit ’em

Cam Newton – In Carolina’s last four games against the Seahawks, they’ve averaged a peasant-like 11.5 points a game. Think about that for a second and when you’re done, please attempt to process how incredibly insane and fascinating that truly is. Newton hasn’t managed to hit pay dirt on the ground in either of those four games and in assuming that Seattle comes out ready to play this week after an EMBARRASSING and DISGRACEFUL loss to the Bengals, I wouldn’t expect him to do so this week either.

E.J. ManuelSammy Watkins, who can’t seem to get off his woe-dingie, needs to silence himself and stop underhandedly taking shots at the Elder Gods chosen son, Tygod, before he is forced to do battle with me, live at the city of Buffalo’s most happening spot… Applebee’s. Say one thing for Applebee’s, their food is low grade dog food. If E.J. Manuel starts this game, the Bills get 21-pointed. Pass the sticks!

Got me praying for Tyrod’s return like…..

Every Browns skill player other than Barnidge – Is this the end of Josh McCown’s incredible streak of insane play? In a word, yes! Denver’s defense is doing things I haven’t thought possible since I did acid with 13 Tibetan monks back in 2003. I simply don’t believe the Browns have any chance of winning this game whatsoever, nor do they have any wideouts that can beat Talib or Chris Harris. Stay away from this one, my goodmen.

T.J. Yeldon – Watching T.J. Yeldon play football reminds me the old man at a gym I used to go to that would blow dry his pubes and the hand dryer by the sink ass naked; I’d really rather not watch. Oh yeah, and he’s banged up and possibly missing the game.

Jonathan Stewart – Coming back to his home state, one would assume Stewart would be super jacked up, getting to play in front of his friends and family. If only they weren’t all banned from the stadium since he abandoned University of Washington to go to their most hated rival, the Oregon Ducks. He’s also been horrendous this season and is facing an incredibly solid run defense.

Antonio Brown – Brown needs to be bumped down outside of ranker’s top 20 this week. He’s going against a fearsome Cardinals defense that will be keying on him, and when you add in the fact that Michael Vick doesn’t seem to click with him, AT ALL, it’s simply irresponsible to rank him anywhere close to the top-10. Obviously, if you own him, you’re probably playing him, but I’m just saying…

Jimmy Graham – I almost made a gut call and put Graham in the Start section, but until I see anything exciting other than ONE cool TD against the hapless Bears, I’m not touching this guy in DFS or in a trade. Seattle simply doesn’t know how to use star receiving weapons on offense. I believe this falls on both the offensive coordinator and that pathetic offensive line. It’s just not worth the risk, but on a positive note, I’m sure he’ll be demanding a trade this offseason. You’ve got to be realistic about these things.

Patriots Defense – The Pats have had some nice outings this season, but you’d be much better off taking a rhino tusk up the ying yang then you would starting this suspect pass defense against a charged up Andrew Luck and his full complement of weapons. I expect a high scoring game, even if 14 of them come in garbage time.

 

Thank you for joining me for another edition of Start Em’, Sit Em’. As always, it’s been an absolute pleasure and I’ll be taking all your questions and comments below. Enjoy the weekend and don’t get arrested. Peace and love.

    Hey, that burns. Who would you start at flex, A. Johnson, P. Gargon, or L. Miller? Thanks

      @Packers: hahah. think I’m going to have to see what this new coach is talkin bout and go with Miller…..tho I’m tempted by Andre in a possible shootout. if it was me, id go Andre, but I’m a risk taker and Miller the safer play as I’m advising…..

  2. Jerry says:

    Hey, Tehol! Andre Johnson, Cecil shorts, Marvin Jones or Dwayne Harris this week at flex? Thanks!

    I didn’t feel half bad about starting New England defense until reading this… Ouch.. Any random highly unowned TE you could throw out to start? Have m Bennett which isn’t looking good , and wire bids lost out

      (link)

      @El Jefe: yea, mayne. thats my specialty. you tell me who’s there, i give you the home run or nothing pick! hahah. is Kyle Rudolph available? like how deep is this league? Richard Rogers?

      • El Jefe says:

        @Tehol Beddict: Rudolph and Rogers gone, grabbed Gilmore but very slim pickings outside of that…fells, celek x2, fasano

  5. Pigs says:

    I have no idea if I should sit Antonio Brown or not. I have Moncrief to play over him, but something just feels wrong about sitting Brown. I feel like whatever decision I make will be the wrong one

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pigs: yea, I’m not as high on MOncrief as most folks, tho Luck seems to like him. Moncrief might even be safer play. I’m concerned about steelers but maybe I’m not giving them enough credit. if it was me, id go brown

  6. Pppphhh says:

    Yo!

    Keeper league question..

    $1 James jones and $14 frank gore for $5o cj Anderson and $12 ameer Abdullah..

    In this league you can oy keep 4 players year to yea so oy James jones/Abdullah have keeping power.

    Thanks

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pppphhh: yea if you’re doing it just for long run and abdullah. for this season, the trade is absolutely wretched. is ur season over?

      • Pppppphhh says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: no im 4-1. i sit gore most weeks.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Pppppphhh: are u stacked at rb then? gore looks good as of late bruh. abdullah looks like dog jizz but in keeper much more value and should improve as season goes on but uhhh, jones has been top 20 wideout all year and gore heating up. could be costly for this season

          • Pppphhh says:
            (link)

            @Tehol Beddict: thanks!! I’ll hold.

  7. Pppphhh says:
    (link)

    Same league.

    Would you trade a $1 Christine Michael for either aj Anderson or Abdullah?

    If Michael wins the job $1 is nice as a keeper but something feels weird with this guy. Then again Abdullah and Anderson haven’t blown the roof off either

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pppphhh: you are correct, Ppppphhh, SOMEthING IS WEIRD WITH THIS GUY!!! HE’S A BUM!!!!!! but still, hahah, at a buck, and if given the shot, I think he’s better than Randle. abdullah and anderson arent doing shit anyway tho this might be anderson first big week but again not keeping at that price sooooooo, hold

      • Pppppphhh says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict:

        true. we only keep 4 playerrs tho. michael prob iisnt a keeper eiither

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Pppppphhh: we shall see

  8. Oliver says:
    (link)

    I’m really trying to choose between Hurns, C. West, and Landry for my FLEX position, but I also have Abdullah, Steve Smith, Marvin Jones, Ryan Mathews, Davante Adams, and Barnidge. Who do you like there?
    Also, how much longer are you giving Megatron? I’ve been starting him every week while watching my bench outscore him.
    Thanks!

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Oliver: Landry is the play altho west is intriguing the Vikes have tough defense and i have no idea how Andy Reid is going to deploy rbs.

      Megatron is not the same anymore. has nice matchup this week tho so you have to start him. sad to see.

    My team is a trainwreck, need some guidance for this week/ROS in a 12 team PPR:

    Play K.Aiken as a flex this week or dump him and grab C. Michael off waivers for ROS and play Charcandrick as flex this week? Evans on bye and I already got Snead’d Thursday night…..

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @JoeBoo: i like the move of grabbing C mich and starting Charcandrick

  12. Pppppphhh says:
    (link)

    Hey! Would you trade Matt Ryan and frank gore to get Aaron Rodgers?

    The guy desperately needs a rb..

    My other trade idea with the same guy is frank gore and Brandon Marshall for deandre Hopkins…

    Both trades leave me with : Forsett, freeman, miller, Coleman, c Michael at rb.

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Pppppphhh: yep, id make that trade forshodo

  13. Teddy ball game says:
    (link)

    Howdy man!

    .5 ppr, with Nelson agholor ruled out who are you adding for as a wildcard with upside : Josh huff, Riley Cooper or miles Austin.

    Looks like the Giants D had given up passing yards & they may be without top corner Prince amukara

    • LT Murray IV

      @Teddy ball game: howdy, suh. Huff is the guy to own! big game coming possibly.

  14. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Would you add Chacanderick West over Johnathan Stewart, who has better ROS value

    Also who is best TE start this week
    Julius Thomas or Rochard Rodgers or Crockett Gilmore

    • Dom B says:
      (link)

      @Dom B:

      10 Man standard league

      My roster
      QB Phillip Rivers
      RB Leveon Bell
      RB Latavius Murray
      WR Julio Jones
      WR AJ Green
      TE Jason Witten

      @Dom B: no. Stewart as of now. i have no clue what West is going to do. u must have someone else you can drop. Gilmore this week

  15. Samebdayasmymom says:
    (link)

    .5 ppr

    Would you go Allen Robinson over a brown? It’s hard to be from Pittsburgh and bench him.

    Also. Flex league ppr question …. Choose 2
    Blount, j brown, Vereen, c west?

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Samebdayasmymom: yep, i have A-Rob ranked much higher than Brown. Blount and Vereen

  16. Butterfield says:
    (link)

    Marquess Wilson, David Johnson, or DeVante Parker for flex? 0.25 ppr + returns.

    • LT Murray IV

      Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Butterfield: think its got to be Wilson, especially if Jefferey sits. cutler seems to be liking him. We just dont know enough on parker yet to go that route. Johnson is short yardage back only

  17. Nick says:

    Hey bud, so not off to a great start this week in my 10 team non ppr. Down 41-3 due to my Hank garbage against his Julio, Freeman & Cooks (could have been worse). Currently I have Ty & Garçon in for WR (Hank already went in 3 hole)..at flex I have Gates & Bennett at TE.

    I have Tate & Duke J as only options on bench (other bench warmers are Adams, Taylor, Randle (bye), cooper (bye))…according to ranks, you would prefer Tate over Garçon? I’m hesitant about the Lions offense but Tate did get massive targets last week…Garçon up against my Jets is tough but Cousins will have to attempt passes…

    than at flex, I was thinking Bennett has a nice matchup & Gates went off last week…so was thinking go for it with 2 TEs against the first place team this week….think I’m screwed regardless but your thoughts? Oh & Peyton better rebound for me this week, than its Taylor’s show next week with Denver bye, hopefully he back…

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: btw, I feel like DeSean Jackson could impact Garcon bigtime…if Jackson is in, Garcon could see decent #s as the #2 WRs have faired better than their #1 counterparts, against the Jets (based on small sample of 5 games)…seems like I should Start Garcon if DeSean is in & sit him for Tate if DeSean is out…or would you rather Tate period?

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Nick: sorry for so many separate posts BUT I just realized, Bennett in danger of sitting with quad injury, does not sound good. Than would you go with Garcon at flex, Tate at WR3….or plug Duke J in over Garcon or Tate? Yikes my team is in real bad shape…

        • Nick says:
          (link)

          @Nick: 1 last post! Aiken is a free agent…but as you can see from my bench, I dont have a drop, it would have to be Tate (who I just picked up)or Duke J (it is a non-ppr, but I think I should hold him)…I need Taylor next week, D Adams will be back week 8 & cant see dropping one of my TEs (Bennett/Gates)…hold or go for it to plug in Aiken this week by dropping Tate or Duke J?

      @Nick: UGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!I think u have to go Tate this week. Garcon facing blanket jets coverage. gonna be a problem for sure. Yep thats not a bad idea with the two tight ends. I’m with it all the way

    Mr. Tehol! Have a tricky week right now and a big week next week against my ole lady…who also have a nasty good (like drunk nasty good) team so I need to take this one. Mainly dealing with some tricky match ups and injury issues. So here is my current line up.

    QB: Bradford
    WR: Demaryius, Hilton, Jordan Matthews
    RB: My Boy Bell! and Lamar Miller
    TE: Delanie Walker
    K: Crosby
    DST: Jets
    BN: Alshon Jeffrey, Allen Hurns, CJ Anderson, TJ Yeldon, Cam Newton, Todd Gurley (bye week…ugh)

    -Are you comfortable rolling with Bradford over Newton? I am but need that validation.
    -Do I trust that Demaryius and Hilton are both going to be healthy and productive? Mainly worried about Hilton with the Sunday night game, Luck status, and recent struggles against NE. Do I put in Jeffrey for one of them if he finally plays?
    -Do I stick my neck out on Miller or Anderson this week? Or do I stick my neck out on Yeldon if he starts?

    Seriously, no easy decisions here…post draft this team looks unstoppable…after 6 weeks I’m struggling to solidify a starting lineup.

    Thanks for all the write ups, advice, and unwavering visceral and viral enthusiasm! Look forward to your posts every week.

      Time to teach ur old lady some things about fantasy football!

      Yea, you’re good here broseph. id probably go Jefferey over Matthews over if he’s a go but knowing my luck this will be Matthews first decent game all season. everything else is perfect in my opinion. you should be destroying everyone.

      thanks for your kind words.

      @Dd: ummmmm, Jennings unless Forsett sits. Watkins and Marques (if Jefferey sits) otherwise i think Jones has good chance of getting a score this week

    Help! Dion Lewis’s questionable status for SNF has me in a bit of a lineup quandary. In a 10-team, 0.5 ppr league, I need to pick a RB, WR, and flex out of: Lewis, CJ Anderson, Moncrief, and Decker. In an ideal world, I’d start Lewis as my RB, Moncrief as my WR, and then it’d be close between CJ and Decker in the flex. The problem is that there’s a chance Lewis might be ruled out last minute on Sunday night, and I need to make sure I have someone else I could plug in for him. I’ve come up with three potential approaches:

    Option A) Start CJ and Moncrief, with Lewis in the flex. If Lewis is a late scratch, I can drop Christine Michael (who is on bye) and pick up Ruben Randle to take his place. It would kill me to drop Michael just as he’s on the verge of getting playing time, but it might be necessary.

    Option B) Proactively drop Knile Davis and pick up Randle. I could then use the same lineup as above (with Randle ready on the bench), and not have to risk dropping Michael. I’m not too keen to drop Davis either, since I’d love to watch for a week to see how the KC situation shakes out, but he seems less valuable than Michael at this point. Of course, with this plan, I’d definitely be dropping Davis before the games on Sunday, rather than being able to wait and see if I even need to drop anyone.

    Option C) Hedge my bets, and bench Moncrief for Decker. This feels like a less promising lineup, but at least this way if Lewis is ruled out, I’ll have Moncrief (also in the SNF game) available to sub in as the flex.

    Right now I’m leaning toward option C, but I’d love your input. Thanks!

      @friar: Just drop Knile if you must. you’re probably not going to be playing him anyway. pick him up again next week if you feel it necessary but thats all you can do right now. id rather drop him than Michael. i just made that same exact move. so I’m leaning option B. I just dropped Knile for Michael. so id rather drop knile than Michael. catch my drift? Option B

    If Forsett doesn’t play would you advise playing cj Anderson or drop cj or John brown for buck Allen? Already played freeman
    Bree’s
    Forsett, freeman, gurley, Martin, Blount & cj
    A brown, Matthews, copper j brown
    Eiffert, barnidge
    Tucker

      @Wendy: I’d just play Blount…he’s prob gonna run all over the Colts.

      @Wendy: cant you just play Blount?????? Niners are decent run defense and I dont think ALlen will do shit even if he starts which i dont believe he is anyway.

      • Wendy says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: I’m playing Blount but need a flex

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @Wendy: safest is probably forsett if he plays but if u dont wanna mess around with injury concerns just go John Brown as he’s a solid play this week

    Would you trade an 8th round pick next year for c.west?

      @Football: depends on how many keepers and if you’re extremely desperate or not. it may be worth it if you need an rb

    Can’t believe im saying this but should I sit A. Brown for either Andre Johnson or hurns
    Half ppr

      @Josh: i currently rank Hurns above him this week but i could see Brown doing something!! MAYBE?!??! i dont know if i could actually go through with it if i owned them both but the answer is yes, i think both of those guys end with better games than Brown

    12 team 1/2 PPR league, must start 3 of these 5:

    Dion Lewis
    LeGarrette Blount
    Jeremy Hill
    Gio Bernard
    Duke Johnson

    I’m thinking both NE guys and Duke?

    Also, I only drafted Peyton this year and missed out on waiver guys like Tyrod & Palmer so I just traded Gio for Philip Rivers…I won that trade, right?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Phillyrulez04: both New england guys and probably gio or hill. Hill if you’ve already traded dude as u said. duke has horrible matchup here i think

    Also, I only drafted Peyton this year and missed out on waiver guys early on like Tyrod & Palmer, so I just traded Gio for Rivers. I also have DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans & Dez (when he comes back) so I’ll only have to play 2 of the RBs above instead of 3…good trade, right?

        @philyrulez04: no prob. yea, i like the trade for rivers. u have enough rbs

    In a 12-team standard league, I have weaknesses at RB and WR. I’m planning on rolling the dice by dropping DMC and picking up anyone that might be of benefit to me long term. I’m talking a high upside handcuff (e.g. Langford, McKinnon) or upside WR (Devante Parker, DGB, Quick), or a semi productive guy now (Crowder, Stevie J, Randle). Any thoughts? It might just be for 2 days but want to take a chance in case injury hits at RB or a WR starts going off this season. Thanks!

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Randy: yea, if ur going for high upside for two days id probably go parker and see if this new coach demands he plays way more / stevie J is possible guy you’d want to hold also

    Hey Tehol, here I am again. Different week, same question lol. Bortles vs Hou or tanne @ ten? Also would u trade gore for abdullah in a ppr lge? Start 2rbs, short bench. Rbs: latavius, gore, duke, Matt jones. Buck allen is a fa fwiw

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @The Talent Show: First off, no, I’m not trading gore for Abdullah. he has shown almost nothing for weeks now as i expected. tough call on QB’s. tenne been tough at home so i like Bortles. id say Tannehill has higher floor tho if you want the safe route

  31. William says:

    Tehol! Big Chief! I hope you are well. I had a question about who to start this week at WR.
    Pick two: Boldin, Jordan Matthews, or Rueben Randle? I appreciate your help!

    William

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @William: Prince William! going Matthews and Randle this week in the shootout. boldin has nice match up of course but never know what you’re gonna get out of that offense.

    Ola, Tehol,
    I haven’t written you since last season. And for that I hope the fantasy gods forgive me. I’m hoping, as a Brown owner, you are wrong on your prognostication. As a Cards fan from Phx, the DBs are gamblers (and I love it). Antonio is crafty, sly, quick, and talented. He supposedly had a “sit down” this week with the artist formerly known as Michael Vick about the game plan. I’m cautiously optimistic that he’ll score double digits. But the Steelers will lose the game by at least 10. Hunter S Thompson would be a fan…………

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @The Bugeater: all is forgiven in the world of Malazan. enjoyed this post of yours immensely! I’m hoping you’re correct and would start him no matter what if I owned him, i just can’t predict he’s going to have a great game at this point. Vick couldn’t hit ANYTHING until late last week. i hope they vanquish the Cardinals and Vick throws for 3 bills. anything is possible!!! glad to have you back

      • The Bugeater says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Never left, nor will I. Always an entertaining read, Tehol. I’m OK with Vick throwing for 300 and 3 TDs (provided Antonio is heavily involved). As long as Palmer and his minions go for 400 and 4 TDs! With the Pitt D, it’s definitely possible.

        • Tehol Beddict says:
          (link)

          @The Bugeater: that Steelers D is looking softer than a bag of jello. i just need a steelers victory

  33. Chris says:

    Hey hey Tehol!
    Standard scoring. Two flex spots, pick two guys…
    Woodhead/Jordan Matthews/Duke/John Brown/Buck Allen?
    As it stands I have Woodhead and Jordan in. Too cute if I try to sneak Buck Allen in?
    P.s. If Forsett sits Buck may be my guy over Woodhead?!

    Chris from Detroit

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Chris: good morning, christopher. wood head and Matthews. if forsett sits which it seems like he doing. i MAY lean Allen over wood head

    Best QB start Phillip Rivers or Eli Manning

    Best TE start Richard Rodgers or Crockett Gilmore or Julius Thomas

    • Tehol Beddict says:

      @Dom B: Manning for certain

      Gio
      Allen but tough call
      ig go Gilmore

    Tehol, with Bennett now probable & injury seeming less concerning, should I roll him out at flex over Duke J or Garcon? I have Gates at TE…
