It wasn’t that long ago when the Packers were an undefeated 6-0 and were on cruise control right into the playoffs. After losing three straight (and barely hanging onto a victory against my Chargers), the NFC North landscape has changed. Sorta. The Lions are still Lioning their way into their natural habitat of last place, and the Bears are continuing their time honored celebration of profound mediocrity. However, the Vikings (who were, at the beginning of the season, a potential dark-horse candidate) have quietly held onto first place of the division at 7-2. Much of that is due to the emergence of Stefon Diggs and the rejuvenation of Adrian Peterson’s career. I guess he just had to switch things up a bit to succeed. Today, we actually get to see a NFC North divisional match-up that isn’t your-run-of-the-mill of who are the Packers going to beat up now… Much has been said of Packers struggles, especially a missing Jordy Nelson. Who I guess just went on the IR? Or people just realized he was missing? Regardless, it seems as though they are just a one-dimensional offense at the moment, and that dimension is being eaten whole by Eddie Lacy

Cowboys have activated Tony Romo, marking the potential return of Romobyl. Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel tried to imitate, but you can never go full Romobyl.

Darren McFadden may be limited from an injury, one that Jerry Jones has downplayed. So I’m assuming this injury has violently thrown a woman onto a futon full of automatic rifles.

    this standard league, having lost allen/dion/l.bell.
    start 2 RB,2 WR/TE, 1 WR/RB
    palmer/cutler
    k.will/andrews/cobb/jennings/crowell/white
    r.matthews/gronk/cooks/mike floyd/reed
    ARI kicker

    got a trade offer, sounds pretty good. my gronk for d.martin + megatron. megatron in last 4 weeks averages 13 pts per week. gronk 13.9 across whole season. martin is 5th RB in this league, and averages 9.25 over last 4 weeks since his bye (11. 9 over whole season). who’s the drop if i do it as well, guessing white, since standard.

    and why would anybody throw a human woman into a bed full of expensive assault rifles, you could bend them doing that. humans aren’t light objects. hardy should really respect his guns more. it’s disgusting.

  9. Frank says:

    12 team PPR, I am 6-4. I have 2 offers for Eifert. Jarvis or Gio from one owner (would likely entertain just Jarvis) and Eifert + RB for Gronk from another owner. Which offer would you take… or leave my team alone? My team is..

    QB – FiTz, Sanchez
    RB – Devonta, D Murray, L Murray, Coleman, T Jones
    WR – Dez, Manny, Crabtree, D Jax, Wright
    TE – Eifert

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Frank: I’d hold on Gronk. Take Giio.

      • Frank says:
        (link)

        @Jay: dont need the rb tho. So in your opinion.. Jarvis or hold?

        • Jay

          @Frank: oh, yeah. That’s fine.

    i need to start two of these guys and i am now leaning inman and finnchess over chris givens and 49ers RB droughn.

    I’ve been tinkering all week and just said best matchup inman vs KC and funchess now starting vs washington.
    looking back seattle defense isn’t that bad against the run but the san fran offense is so bad that i still can’t trust it
    givens against his old team but rams have a solid defense

    let me know if you think I’m right in starting inman and funchess or am i crazy

    need to win out to make the playoffs lol

      Jay says:

      @Paul: no, I agree with you on all points.

    Good morning. Would you start Davante Adams or Marvin Jones today? Leaning Adams. Thanks!

  12. Nick says:
    (link)

    ugh, Im still going back and forth between Jordan Matthews & DaVante Adams for my flex…most have them ranked right next to eachother so I suppose its a toss-up…I think I’m going Adams…hoping that volume continues & maybe a TD can be converted! I just do not trust Marky Mark with Jordan, especially as a Jet fan!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I think Adams is a fine choice.

  13. Allan says:

    Hey Jay,
    Crowder or V. Jackson in a half point ppr? Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Allan: Crowder.

  14. Allan says:
    (link)

    Oh and also matt jones or lacy in a standard league?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Allan: Jones.

  15. Nick says:
    (link)

    Just saw that Alshon is out…I have Bennett on my bench since Gates is starting TE & my flex is Davante Adams (as mentioned above it was between him & J Matthews for flex)…

    Do you consider getting Bennett in at either flex or TE?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: flex seems okay, but I might want a wr there.

    Jay,

    Great job on the rankings and round-ups this year. Quick question: given McFadden’s history and groin injury he’ll be battling today, shld i start Blount over him today? I already have McCoy in the other RB spot…flexing Davante Adams…1pt PPR league. Thanks!

    -G

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @The G: Thanks! Still going DMC, but it’s close.

    Considering playing Osweiler over Stafford this week. Crazy stupid or crazy genius???

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: just crazy! Haha. I’m going Stafford still.

  18. Mike says:
    (link)

    Trade Hillmand and Josh Brown for Karlos Williams and Pierre Garcon? Already own McCoy, AP, Langford. I keep Hillman on the bench. Keeper league.

    Feels like I’m trading low on Brown, but getting Karlos feels wise.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mike: naw, I’d hold.

      Jay says:

      @Peteyeah, I would.

  21. Rob Popp says:

    Hey Jay. RB for today to compliment Devonta: Rawls or Turbin? Thanks brotha!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Turbin.

  22. Zandy says:
    (link)

    No Emmanuel
    Start Demaryius over Calvin or Jstew? Std

    Last bench spot Turbin or white?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Naw, and Turbin.

    crap boobs crap, forsett just knocked out by donald. didn’t look like anything outside routine tackle though.

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: apparently “serious” right arm injury. didn’t grab j.allen in enough spots. did where i have forsett in one for sure.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: in PPR, drop duke johnson or gordon first to attempt to get allen? really bad waiver as i have top record in the one spot i have forsett but no allen. only start 2 RB and i have 5, with forsett/ivory/duke/gordon and yeldon.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: I like Gordon for upside, but if you are needing a starter in PPR, I’d rather keep Duke and grab Allen.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: Just took a look, seemed innocent at first. Forsett isn’t a big guy, but if they are saying serious, maybe something broke. Can’t be good whatever it is.

      • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i’m more worried about what’s gonna happen to aiken’s production with wacco for flacco out (not that he’s good, but SCHLUB is now in)

  24. Teddy Heater says:
    (link)

    Jay!
    This Oak/Det game killed me. I thought it was gonna be a boat race and both offenses look lost. I’m flip flopping for the late games. Should I start Diggs or Stevie with this lineup…..
    Carr
    Gurley
    AP
    Landry
    Hurns
    Diggs
    Woodhead
    Bench Stevie J, Gates, Eifert, Green-Beck

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Teddy Heater: Yeah, I expected something from Stafford today, that’s for sure. I’m leaning Stevie, but the idea of going with Diggs and splitting it up with Woodhead is giving me pause. I’d say Johnson is the big play/big risk choice here… you might need it.

  25. ryanoger says:

    .5 ppr

    Should I still flex Antonio Gates over Devante Adams? With Ladarius now active as well?

    thanks jay!
    ryan

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: Just saw this… I would have gone Gates still, but it’s closer.

  26. Foxy says:
    (link)

    Jay, hoping you get this in time. Lynch and Rawls in. Would you play Rawls over Blount? Thanks!!

    • Foxy says:
      (link)

      Meant to say Lynch “out” and Rawls in.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Foxy: Didn’t, my bad! I would have done Blount over Rawls.

    is gates playing!? i know he’s active.

      • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
        (link)

        @Jay: wow, he was actually fighting his own buddy QB for targets? nice.

          @Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves: I’m sure everyone is just frustrated. Honestly, the worst season Gates and Rivers ever had together was a 7-9 year I believe. This year is really really bad.

    Hey Jay, in ppr – start LaFell or Gio ?

      • JohnnyBeGood says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so u like LaFell ? More upside u think ? I’m down big

        • Let Us Now Praise Famous Death Dwarves says:
          (link)

          @JohnnyBeGood: i’m guessing a yes here means the first guy listed, so lafell on it.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @JohnnyBeGood: Yeah, I think LaFell was the upside guy there.
