If you weren’t already in your league playoffs, chances are, they start today. And if not, next week. And if not, then I have no idea about anything your league is doing. And as the fantasy season comes to a close, so does the NFL regular season. I can’t say that I’ve actually liked the football I’ve watched this season, but that’s mostly because I’ve been perma-drunk and a Chargers fan. Those aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive, but for my purposes in life, they can be. That being said, there are plenty of teams that have under-performed just as much. Like, for instance, the Browns. Alright, this isn’t making me feel any better. What about a riveting AFC North showdown between the Steelers and Bengals? Meh, been there, done that. A tantalizing game between the Cowboys and Packers? Eh, not especially exciting without Romo. So then there’s the Patriots and Texans Sunday Night Football showdown as our last resort for some football, or something close to it. Tom Brady against Brian Hoyer? Yep. That’s definitely the game we’ll be waiting all day for… Sounds. About. Right.

    Flex, standard scoring, looking for floor as my opponent already got only 4pts out of Fitzgerald and generally I like my lineup against his. Dez is highest in your ranks but I’must concerned there’s an 80% chance he matches Fitz’s 4. Could go Langford (already starting Forte) or something crazier like Lockett, DGB or Duke Johnson.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d keep it simple and safe, and stick with Forte. Dez is interesting, in that you could very well be right, but I’m still probably starting him as well.

      • Steve Stevenson says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thanks! Forte’s in at rb2 already, was wondering if Langford over dez at flex is the safer play.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Steve Stevenson: Yeah, I could see that. Not sure if it’s safe, but both have risks. Personally, if you’re going Forte, maybe go Dez to diversify.

    Torn between Hurns or Cooper in PPR today pleasee help Jay thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dave: I say Cooper, but it’s close. Any time!

  3. rapgod says:
    (link)

    It appears my opponent will start Marcus wheaton against me.. Do I sand which him with Antonio brown and martavis bryant or stay with Antonio brown and sammy Watkins..

    Just hope the bengals don’t donwhat Seattle didnand focus 90% of their attention on AB letting Wheaton trot around unguarded..

    Basically pick 3 from: Alshon.martavis.sammy.antonio.dez bryant.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @rapgod: I think I said something different the other day, but based on my rankings, I’m going Brown and Watkins. And probably Alshon.

  4. Oppo taco says:

    Langford vs wsh
    Ryan Mathews vs Buffalo
    Cj spiller @TB

    .5 Ppr I only need one. Saints don’t seem to trust spiller, apparently sproles will be featured vs Buffalo today and forte out touched Langford by a lot last week ……..helppppppp

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oppo taco: Probably going Spiller, but I’m nervous about it. Langford is kinda close too.

  5. Bba says:

    Moncrief, desean, Dgb , or Aiken ppr

    Demarco, mcluster, Crowell , juwaun Thompson , ajayi ppr

      DeMarco.

      • Chicken Dinner says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Murray dropped to 4th string. Chips Ahoy!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bba: And go Desean, didn’t see that first part. And McCluster is okay, but Murray is fine too. All of them are really clumped together.

  6. Randy says:
    (link)

    In a standard league, I need 1 WR, 1 RB, and 1 Flex out of Dez, Parker, Jordan Matthews; and C West, DMC, Ryan Mathews; and Kelce. I’m specifically curious on your thoughts about the latest on the Eagles backfield (Demarco demoted to 4th string?) and on Packers defense vs. #1 WRs. I don’t want to get cute but am not sure about Dez’s situation. Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Randy: I think Parker, DMC and Kelce get the nod here.

  7. b says:

    Whats up Jay.

    What would you say on this.

    Palmer – played
    Peterson – played
    Rawls
    Alshon Jefferey
    Allen Robinson
    Greg Olsen – is he really injured?? I don’t think so but is listed as probable
    Lamar Miller

    Bench:
    Gurley
    Spencer Ware
    DeAngelo Williams
    Megatron
    Sanders

    Do you think I should start anyone over Lamar Miller this week? What do you think about starting Jeffery over Megatron?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @b: I think you have a good set up. Williams is close there though.

  8. citizen5 says:
    (link)

    I asked this question earlier in the week
    Looking over the rankings it appears that West is still my best choice for FLEX this week. Other options on my bench are Langford, White, Ware, Amendola, Cobb or Cooper.
    1) Do you agree?

    Also, Gronk appears he’ll play “if needed. Not sure what that means for my starting TE Chandler tonight.
    2) Am I better off dropping him for one of these FA TEs?
    Watson, Clay, Tye, Rodgers or Miller?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @citizen5: yup, going West. Hold onto Chandler. Let’s see how Gronk responds.

  9. jeff says:
    (link)

    javorious allen or Darren sproles since hes the #1 rb now?

    cobb, hurns or travis benjamin?

    thanks

    • jeff says:

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @jeff: Allen and Cobb. It’s close on both though.

  10. Comatose says:
    (link)

    Reports this morning saying Hightower is the guy in Nola. Would you start him over Demarco?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: No, but it’s close.

    Vincent Jackson
    And Devante Parker is my flex.
    Sitting out James jones and Langford.
    It’s a 2/2/1 league. I think you asked me that yesterday;)
    Thanks for the help!!!!!

  12. Steve Stevenson says:

  18. Thursday Night Funball says:
    (link)

    There’s still plenty of laughs to be had in the NFC East!!! Better than any Thursday night comedy lineup. Who do you think has more upside: Chris Ivory or DMC?

    • ROTO OVERLORD says:
      (link)

      @Thursday Night Funball: DMC fumbled 2 times last game, I wouldnt be suprised if that cost a few touches to go to Turbin. titans give a good floor but i dont see ivory out running their d, but still I like Ivory better

  19. doc says:
    (link)

    Juwaun, Demarco, Crowell, mcluster, ajayi ppr league pick 1

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @doc: Demarco, but McCluster is real close. Maybe McCluster. Honestly, it’s just a big clump.

  20. ROTO OVERLORD says:
    (link)

    Hightower over dez at a PPR flex? and Hightower over devante Parker in standard?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ROTO OVERLORD: Yeah, I can see it. I’m nervous, but can see it.

  21. Frank says:

    Osweiler @ OAK
    Or.. dare I include…. Matt Ryan @ CAR

    • Jay

      Jay says:

  26. Christine Michael: one Unlucky Whitehead (just pop him or not) says:
    (link)

    in 14 team dynasty with super flex. hyde finally IR’d, i got space for one. turbin/white/denard dog/inman/geno smith/randle

    start 2 WR/ 2 RB/ 1 TE/ 1 flex/ 1 super flex
    palmer/hoyer/foles/keenum
    woodhead/gurley/hyde/ellington/coleman
    dez/green/cooks/adams/marvin jones
    julius thomas/walker
    mcmanus
    SF (streaming Def)

    2. also, go Parker over Adams? nevermind this one, somebody dropped inman hours ago for parker.

  27. Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
    (link)

    GD CLE, after having Crowell for at least 10 weeks had to drop him for upsidey backups like kar will/turbin etc in a standard league where i’m completely screwed with injuries. guys like crowell and jennings had to get dropped. do have hightower now. couldn’t keep starting guys with 3 or less pts each and every week when i need long shots to pan out. probably shouldn’t have dropped white though after 2 weeks of getting only 5 or less touches a game.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: in that same league i’ll have lost at least 3 times (likely if i lose this week) from either having played cooks over somebody else, or cooks over somebody else. cooks over reed cost 16 pts this one.

  28. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    Week 1 of the playoffs lost 30min in. Dalton and Rawls lost in first quarter.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chicken Dinner: Yeah, Dalton, Eifert, Rawls, a lot of names that screwed some teams yesterday.

  29. Project Merkin says:
    (link)

    Jay, I respect your opinion more than I respect my own merkin, so I’m posting this so maybe you’ll see it.

    I feel like my team has a lot going for it, but I’m also super nervous about my RB/FLEX.

    I’ll take tomorrow’s rankings into consideration, obvi, but need to get the ball rolling.

    PPR league

    QB: Brady
    WR: Antonio Brown, AJ Green

    Looking solid there. Now the fun part:

    RB/Flex Options (need to choose 3 of these guys for 2 RB slots and FLEX):
    Latavius Murray
    Darren McFadden
    David Johnson
    Denard Robinson
    DeSean Jackson
    Bryce Brown

    Whaddyuh think??
