Through the entirety of my career leisurely watching football, there are certain truths, elements that remain steadfast if you will, that I’ve noticed over time. Sure, most of them involve Dan Synder being a douche, Ray Lewis getting stabby with it, and Phil Sims causing aneurysms, but, minus those wonderful highlights, hating on the New England Patriots seems to be numero uno on that list, not just in this country, but at a universal level. Like, I’m talking Pluto, man. And for all those haters (this galaxy specifically), I give to you, the New York Giants. True, they come from the derpiest division, and provide such levels of derp that Tom Coughlin’s face is permanently shaded red. But that seems to never get in the way when the Giants are playing against the Patriots. While there are other marquee match-ups, like Arizona at Seattle, and, uh, Jaguars against the Ravens? Holy sh*t these games suck. Regardless, can the Giants stop yet another Patriots unbeaten season? It’s not a Super Bowl, so probably not, but I guarantee this is the game to watch…

  • Emmanuel Sanders‘ ankle is “very sore” and could affect his mobility. Personally, with the short-ranged ducks Peyton Manning has been throwing, this may actually be a positive.
  • Michael Vick has confirmed that Landry Jones will be the starter today against the Browns. I wasn’t aware that he switched careers to sideline reporter.
  • Raiders’ center Rodney Hudson is looking doubtful, and could affect their running game. Another thing that might affect it is Oakland is expected to experience 25 MPH wind gusts at game time.

    Trying to figure out

  5. Wide Right says:

    So in my PPR league.. I have 2 RB’s on byes.. fortunately I have AP.
    However, I need to start someone.. right now I have McCluster rostered. Do I count on TN to play-from-behind and throw a lot of check-downs to him?
    Or do I pick up Sproles on waivers.. or CJ Spiller (after bitchin’ about not getting the ball, is this the week he gets the ball?? or are we all in for more disappointment?)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: I like McC this week, but I believe I have Spiller ahead of him.

  6. Scooter G says:
    (link)

    Trying to figure out who to start as RB 2 this week. Should I wait to see if Lynch is ruled out to decide if I can start Rawls? If Lynch is going to play I can always start A Blue on Monday night. The other option is to not wait and just start CJ A. What do you think?

    Also better OP option A Cooper, J Cutler, or Mariota?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scooter G: yeah, based on those options, I’d wait and see there.

    I believe I asked you this question Thursday so hopefully you remember, but more coach speak has came out about Ajayi and I’m starting to get nervous as a Lamar owner.. I only have lamar, Forsett and freeman as starters then I have tevin Coleman and christine Michael on the bench..

    Here is my team
    Qb–>luck (IR) Matt Ryan and bortles
    Rb–> miller, freeman, Forsett, c-mike and Coleman
    Wr–> Alshon,dez,Antonio,martavis,sammy
    Te–>Martellus and Vernon

    Would you drop anyone to handcuff Lamar with Ajayi now that the coach seems determined to get him more carries? I think the drop is between Matt Ryan c-mike and Vernon for me. C-mike
    Being held to keep away from the dmc owner who is the best team right now. If dmc goes down and I have christine i think I become the best team otherwise I would’ve dropped him weeks ago..

    Sorry for bugging you again but situations changed since Thursday so wanted to see where you were at.

    Thanks!

      Jay says:

      @Letsgoletsgo: bug me all the time! Yeah, been reading the same things. I’m not worried this week, but moving forward, Ajayi will get more volume. I’d drop Vernon, but if you want to see what happens, I think Ryan is fine as the drop unless it’s a 2 QB league.

      • Letsgoletsgo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thank you. I think I’ll drop Ryan.. Romo is still on the wire in case bortles Flames out but looking at what Matt Ryan has done all year (very average numbers) and a tough end of the year schedule I think I’ll be ok if someone picks him up off waivers later.. But I think the Ajayi news can’t go unnoticed anymore especially for Lamar owners..

        Thanks

    .5 ppr -Calvin Johnson or Steffon Diggs for flex?

  13. Ewok man says:
    (link)

    Howdy Jay it’s week 10!

    .5 ppr would I be nuts starting charcanderick west over Lamar miller? I noticed philly has been tough against the run.

    Start / sit Alshon Jeffry I know the obvious answer is start Alshon but I’m worried about his groin acting up today & the Rams are a tough D too. We start 3 WR’s: my WR1 is Demaryius, WR2 Alshon, WR3 megatron.

    Megatron looks questionable too but great matchup / garbage time points.

    If you start both Alshon & megatron who then at Flex; If I go C-West at RB I have LaFell, diggs , amendola, alf blue, abdullah, Lamar miller. Jill is my RB1

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ewok man: Miller is still my guy there. Alson’s been cleared, so in that case, I’d keep him in and then go with Megatron and Diggs.

  14. Blounts & fortes says:

    and this was why i didn’t want to drop osweiler in 2 QB league dynasty when i have peyton as well. had to go after white’s upside. now it’s gonna cost me to get him back. wondering how much? this team will now be 4-6 (4th highest in pts going into this week) and getting more bad injuries. only 2 IR’s, but i’m not dropping any of edelman/allen/jordy to compete this year. start 3 WR, 2 RB. 2 flexes. osweiler is about next year here. PPR.
    rodgers/peyton/rodfather
    forte/ivory/woodhead/j.bell/michael/white
    r.matthews/d-jax/edelman/hankerson/agholor
    ertz/j.thomas
    IR – jordy/allen
    NYG kicker
    CAR DEF
    IDP’s – collins/d-jax (IND)/barron/david/dansby

    Other QB bids were
    geno (last week) $6, i tied this but lost by tiebreaker
    landry jones $3
    vick (back when he got the job) $16
    weeden $26 (this was clearly on purpose overpay by romo owner)
    hoyer $11

    I have $39/100 left

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: went $13 when i could’ve gone zero. yikes, but i got the OS now yet again. season is likely trashed with this team anyway, with allen/forte/peyton (only drafted since it looked like a real steal where i got him in early third round in this, a 2 QB 6 pt TD with yard bonuses league (not huge bonuses)), and now edelman, d-jax/ogletree etc. odd nobody grabbed sanchize yet.
