Johnny Manziel is a punk.  Yeah, I like my sports to be entertaining, but I applaud the Browns for benching Manziel. What’s the big deal, you say?  Well, not only did he lie to the team, but he just left a rehab center and he’s out partying.  He’s a grown-ass man, but he’s also being paid as an investment.  Sorry, if my investment is acting like a clown when it’s clear he’s had issues in the past, I’m making the same moves that the Browns did. See you on TV in a few years, Johnny. Let’s get to the streamers.

Brian Hoyer (32 percent) vs. Saints — Yeah, I get it.  I have to have him here, but it doesn’t mean I want to.  It’s too obvious, you know?  I’m not telling anything you don’t know.  A 22 percent increase in ownership this week shows that.  Narrative street says all quarterbacks light up the Saints, and yes, I know how well he did prior to his concussion, but he’s still Brian Hoyer to me.  Plus, Rob Ryan is gone, the Saints are off a bye week, they’ll be less aggressive, Hoyer is coming off a concussion and he’s still Brian freaking Hoyer.  I’ll fade him in DFS, and project him to hit 19 points.

I’d start him over: Russell Wilson, Phillip Rivers, Jameis Winston.

I’d sit him for: Tom Brady, Andy Dalton, Josh McCown.

Josh McCown (9 percent) vs. Baltimore — I’d much rather throw McCown out there on Monday night than Hoyer on Sunday.  While future fantasy points are indicative of past performances, McCown did put up 35.48 points on Baltimore in Week 5.  I like him again this week against a Baltimore team that is decimated on both sides of the ball.

I’d start him over: Brian Hoyer, Russell Wilson, Phillip Rivers.

I’d sit him for: Blake Bortles, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning.

How did I do last week?

Mark Sanchez: 16.84 fantasy points.

Ryan Fitzpatrick: 17.84 fantasy points.


Tight Ends

Crockett Gillmore (30 percent) at Cleveland — Matt Schaub has to throw to someone, right?  He used his tight ends in Houston, but that was under Gary Kubiak’s system.  We’ll see how it translates to the professor’s system in Baltimore.  Expect Schaub to favor Chris Givens deep and pepper Kamar Aiken and Gillmore short.

I’d start him over: Coby Fleener, Travis Kelce, Kyle Rudolph.

I’d sit him for: Heath Miller, Jacob Tamme, Delanie Walker.

Jacob Tamme (23 percent) vs. Minnesota — Leonard Hankerson is out, so plug Jacob Tamme in.  He’s dirt cheap in DFS, and he’s a top 10 tight end in seasonal leagues this week.

I’d start him over: Travis Kelce, Antonio Gates, Jimmy Graham.

I’d sit him for: Gary Barnidge, Tyler Eifert, Delanie Walker.

How did I do last week?

Eric Ebron: 0 fantasy points (second straight week a tight end dropped a touchdown against the Raiders).

Coby Fleener: 6 points.


Kicker and Defense & Special Teams

Connor Barth (18 percent) at Indianapolis — All aboard!

I’d start him over: Steven Hauschka, Blair Walsh, Justin Tucker.

I’d sit him for: Josh Brown, Stephen Gostkowski.

Vikings (35 percent) at Falcons — No Hankerson, no Freeman and an overrated Matt Ryan?  Yes, please.

I’d start them over: Jets, Texans, Titans.

I’d sit them for: Chiefs, Bills, Patriots.

How did I do last week?

Connor Barth: 9 fantasy points.

Texans: 8 fantasy points.

    Hi Loo ^^

    i have Luck banged up for a few more games,
    QB starter is Tyrod, not looking a top option this week
    would you start-stream Hass-ole-back or Bigc MacCown?

    ( i’d drop Tyrod or Karlos Williams)

    • waterloo

      waterloo says:

      @Nick: Hey man. I would be OK dropping Williams for McCown.

  2. Steve Stevenson says:

    0.5 PPR, already in a hole because opponent had Stafford and was already projected to beat me, and I ran Forte, so need to play solely for upside:

    QB – McCown or Carr
    DST – MIN or CLE
    WR – Wright, Boldin or Lockett

    • @Steve Stevenson: Upside plays, I’m going Carr, Vikings and Lockett as pure upside.

  3. needhelp says:

    bills, stl , or cleveland d/st this week?

  4. Fella says:

    Would you start James White or David Johnson? (Love the kid)

    • @Fella: That’s where we are at with RBs, huh? Give me White. Pats may try to get him more involved (4 touches last week) against the Broncos. That’s the way to attack Denver. I’ll gamble with him over Johnson.
