What’s the saying again?  Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  Or, should I say, Foles me once and twice.  Last time I picked Nick Foles as a streamer, he kind of spit the bed, if you will.  Now, it’s tempting to go with him again in Green Bay, as the opposing quarterback puts up good fantasy numbers be default thanks to Aaron Rodgers being locked in at home. But no.  Not this time, though I would consider him if I needed someone. This week, both of the top streamer quarterbacks come from the same game in Kansas City.  Let’s get right to it, shall we?



Jay Cutler (33%) at Kansas City — Smoking Jay Cutler made his return last week and had a solid performance.  Personally, I’ve sworn Cutler off as being pretty much dead to me.  I owned him in seven of the eight leagues I was in last year, and I was left scrambling down the stretch.  But this matchup is too good to pass up, as the Chiefs give up the most points to opposing quarterbacks in the league.  For one week and one week only, I’m rolling out Cutler.

I’d start Cutler over: Russell Wilson, Andy Dalton, Alex Smith.

I’d sit Cutler for: Marcus Mariota, Sam Bradford, Tyrod Taylor.

Alex Smith (37%) vs. Chicago — Facing Cutler on the other sideline will be game manager Alex Smith, who has at least 17 points in three of his four games this season.  As bad as the Chiefs are, the Bears are right up there with them.  Plus, Smith has discovered that Jeremy Maclin plays for his team now.

I’d start Smith over: Russell Wilson, Nick Foles, Matthew Stafford.

I’d sit Smith for: Jay Cutler, Marcus Mariota, Tyrod Taylor.

How did I do last week?

Derek Carr — 12.84 fantasy points. 20-33, 196 yards and two touchdowns.

Tyrod Taylor — 15.46 fantasy points. 28-42, 274 yards and one touchdown.


Tight Ends

Richard Rodgers (39%) vs. RamsDavante Adams?  Nah.  Ty Montgomery?  No thanks.  Richard Rodgers?  Step on up.  Rodgers is a borderline tight end 1 this week, as he showed promise last week against San Francisco.  He does, after all, have Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball.

I’d start Rodgers over: Garrett Celek, Crockett Gillmore, Gary Barnidge.

I’d sit Rodgers for: Delanie Walker, Antonio Gates, Owen Daniels.

Virgil Green (0%) at Oakland — Now, stay with me, this is a Hail Mary play.  It’s a GPP play or a play in 14-team leagues or bigger.  We know that tight ends own the Raiders.  We think it’s going to be Owen Daniels, but Virgil Green could be the beneficiary.

I’d start Green over: Timothy Wright, Derek Carrier, Ladarius Green.

I’d sit Green for: Everyone else.

How did I do last week?

Charles Clay — 15.60 fantasy points. Nine receptions, 111 yards.

Eric Ebron — 3.20 fantasy points. Injured early.


Kicker and Defense & Special Teams

Chandler Catanzaro (27%) at Detroit — He’s up 13 percent from last week when he was my stream of the week (17 fantasy points).  He needs to be owned more throughout fantasy leagues.  He’s indoors again this week on a high-scoring offense.

New York Giants (60%) vs. 49ers — Popular streamer this week, as they are up 54 percent since waivers cleared.  Also look at an Atlanta defense facing Washington.

I’d start the Giants over: Packers, Seahawks, Falcons.

I’d sit the Giants for: Patriots, Bills, Bengals.

How did I do last week?

San Diego — Six points.

    Mr. Waterloo, If Eddie Royal is magically active…Who would you flex…Eddie Royal or Delanie Walker??? Thanks…

    • @Todd: hey man. For sure Royal if he goes.

  2. The Talent Show says:

    Bortles or cutler?? Is royal and alshon gonna be gone?

  3. I don't want to brag, but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:

    finally somebody around here that doesn’t need to add “football” to the title of New York Giants. Thank you. You don’t see those same people feel the need for “Arizona Football Cardinals”, right?

  4. Randy says:

    Hi, at RB in a 12-team standard league, I have CJ Anderson, J-Stew, McFadden, Karlos Williams, David Johnson. and Ryan Mathews. At WR, have Dez, Jordan Matthews, Rueben Randle, Ty Mont, and DGB. First, if you had to drop 2, who would they be? And who would you start at RB (2), WR (2), and flex (1)? I can also start Eifert at flex, and guys like Crowder, Aiken, Wilson, etc are on the wire as well.

    • @Randy: Insanely busy day traveling yesterday, so my apologies. I won’t bother with the sit or start part obviously, but if I had to drop two as of this minute, it’s DGB and David Johnson.

  5. Dom B says:

    Hey Jay looking to next week where I have byes for Jason Witten and Latavius Murray. Im starting Thomas Rawls if Lynch doesn’t play next week and I don’t have a backup TE who would you drop
    my roster
    QB Phillip Rivers
    RB Leveon Bell
    RB Latavius Murray
    WR Julio Jones
    WR AJ Green
    TE Jason Witten
    Flex Keenan Allen
    QB ElI Manning
    RB Jonathan Stewart
    WR Steve Smith
    RB Thomas Rawls

    • @Dom B: Solid roster. Tough call. If it’s me, I’m trying to do a 2-for-1 deal if I can. If I can’t, I’m dropping one of the quarterbacks. Probably Rivers.

  6. Dom B says:

    Which TE to play next week with Jason Witten on bye Jacob Tamme, Richard Rodgers, Coby Fleener, Jordan Cameron, Vernon Davis, Heath Miller, Jordan Reed(injured), Owen Daniels, Crockett Gilmore, or Eric Ebron

    • @Dom B: Give me Reed easily if active. If not, I go Ebron (if active) Gillmore, Rodgers, Gillmore, Cameron, Daniels.
