Wow,  the Patriots taking on the Colts… a match-up that’s unheard of in modern-day football! Rarely have we seen these two franchises play against each other. Maybe one day, a rivalry can develop between the two, giving all of us an illustrious and storied narrative for which we will be bombarded with ad nauseam. What a future that would be… perhaps we will get a taste of this wonderful new era during this Sunday Night Football match-up? It wasn’t too long ago that we had all fired Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, and we were ready to usher in the era of Jimmy Garoppolo. I don’t know about you, but the epoch of Garoppolo sounds very intriguing. Only because it sounds like a Lost episode. But the Patriots find themselves with a 7-2 record and back to where they usually find themselves, atop the AFC standings. The Colts, despite some defensive hiccups, like Ben Roethlisberger doing whatever he wanted (sounds familiar for some reason…) are still in control of the AFC South. Mostly because the division has the Titans and Jaguars, two teams that are both dedicated in trying to out Jets the Jets and operate the Raider way. With the recent prime time games being terrible, there’s a chance for this to be quite an entertaining game. Which means it’ll be an excruciating three-plus hours of awfulness.

Week 11 Rankings have been updated for today’s games, for all your roster needs. You can check them out here.

 

Surprising no one, Arian Foster is officially out versus the Browns.

Reggie Bush has been ruled out.

Peyton Hillis was placed on injured reserve with a concussion, which is a shame for all the teams that had him as a primary running back. Which is none of you.

Ronnie Hillman is out today, and while that’s been known for a while, ESPN apparently just found out and made him IR-eligible the other day.

There’s a slight chance of snow for the Vikings vs. Bears, with a large chance of a terrible game. Texans vs. Browns, Eagles vs. Green Bay, and Seahawks vs. Chiefs also have a slight chance of snow. All other games look to be clear, weather wise.

    And who do I drop? Hillman or Blue (I picked up blue to block my opponent – I’m not playing him today)

    Thanks, Jay.

    Hey Jay Im in a competitive money league and have 2 good D/ST (Cards, Lions). Just read that Foster might not play so I picked up Browns D. Who would u rather start this week? And also who is the better play at TE? Kyle Rudolph or Travis Kelce…. thanks man

      @BEATS by Ray: Lions, Kelce

    Morning Jay! Still debating my lineup & this is probably the first time we weren’t in agreement..I have set now;

    RB2-R Jennings
    WR3- M Bryant
    Flex- R Mathews

    Its a non-ppr league. I also have McKinnon, Sanu & K Allen on my bench. Do you stick with my lineup or get Mck back in my lineup somewhere? I want to believe in Mathews easy matchup but your rankings say otherwise…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Mathews will be limited a bit, so safe play is going Mck there.

  22. Cole says:
    (link)

    Start two rbs McCoy, Hill, or Matthews?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Cole: McCoy and Mathews.

  23. Steve Stevenson says:

    ROS WR stash, standard scoring w/ 5pt bonus at 100yd: Shorts, J. Brown, Wheaton or Randle?

  24. Kevin says:

    PPR Flex:

    Reed, Sproles, D. Adams

    Brady
    J.Charles
    A.Ellington
    G.Tate
    D.jackson
    J.Thomas

  27. coachgonzo says:

    Hey Razzballers, .5 ppr , who do I start in the flex A.johnson, A. blue, or R. Jennings? Thx and stay awesome.

    • coachgonzo says:
      (link)

      @coachgonzo: going Blue, wish I knew who Haden is going to cover

      • coachgonzo says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thx Jay. Jennings has to prove he is not limited to me. But I just rolled the dice on talent. And Johnson is the borderline hall of fame player. Going him w the Mallet. Good luck all.

    (link)

    Hi jay….PPR flex….Blue,OB JR or Sproles?

    Thanks.

  29. John Rambo Jr says:
    (link)

    You listed your preference of starting Jennings over Tate above and while I agree w/ your take, do you feel RB is usually a better option for the flex position?

    Please rank your favorite (3) for wk 11.

    R. Jennings, R. Mathews, G. Tate

    Thanks in advance,
    JRJ

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @John Rambo Jr: I do. I’d go Tate slighty over Mathews fir upside

  30. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Flex Crowell over K. Allen in non-ppr now that he’s starting? West was pretty far ahead of Allen in the ranks

  31. Nick says:
    (link)

    So it was completely irrelevant whether I started McKinnon or R Jennings…Evans & AJ Green are single handily destroying mne

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yeah, leave it to Washington to let one player score 30 points…

  32. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    after seeing how ugly the Saints were at home (and seriously CIN has more schizophrenia than anybody ever), i one of my teams, with cooks/ingram/jimmy was cooked already. well, due to cutler and hill for me (and Julius Thomas and the NO kicker) i’m still up 35.15 with my novak and m.bryant vs his bradshaw/maclin/sankey to go. If i lose, i sure hope it’s not due to sankey, who i dropped early this week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: Looks okay so far. But yeah, could be a MNF long wait and see type of weekend.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: i was probably fine till that garbage time maclin TD, still up 21.85 with m.bryant vs bradshaw/sankey and last 7 minutes of garbage time maclin. GB D took the rest of the game off. I didn’t know, they are actually a good D now, ranked 11th over whole season. If Bryant has any kind of game like’s he’s been having i’m probably fine, and sankey does what he usually does (around 5-8 pts).

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @goodfold2: Yeah, still a cushion there. Could have been a lot worse.

        • goodfold2 says:
          (link)

          @Jay: yeah, now he needs sankey to outscore bryant by 16.75, not bloody likely. IND in trouble for ROS if bradshaw does what he normally does when something below his knee gets screwy. Before they took him off i knew something wasn’t gonna be right, he fell on his ankle/foot crooked on the second goal line stuff, with some big dudes landing on it. (hope he remembered his foot surgery punch card, i’m sure it’s either free this time or comes with a soft pretzel or something)

  33. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    anybody else start rudolph and somehow are favored to still win by 80, since opp had all of jimmy g/v-jax/asiata/cadet/starting. that’s lucky, along with only having rudolph/evans/charles having played so far.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @goodfold2: I don’t get nice things in fantasy football.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: some unlucky news also, as with ugly trade waiting periods my trade for sanchize won’t go over till later today, so i’ll likely lose in one place, unless tate gets more pts than sanchize.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: That’s very possible at this point though.

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @Jay: sanchize could end up with 400 yards here, and tate is against that great ARI D.

            • goodfold2 says:
              (link)

              @goodfold2: no, it turns out me and opp stopped our haggling on thurs at night, he waited till mid day friday, knowing full well he’d still have sanchize this week, yet still make the trade deadline, which is smart. sanchize outscored tate in this league by over 18 pts, and i’ll likely only lose byjust under 10. I’ll still likely make playoffs, but it was a good play by my opp.

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @goodfold2: Interesting, in most leagues, I have him around 14 points.

                • goodfold2 says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay: this is from a weird standard. i also lost bradshaw and orange julius today, so playoffs are gonna be just great anyway, unless of course i get peterson back by then.

  34. Zandy says:
    (link)

    So jay – thankfully mason did alright but bmarsh lynch and kelvin were enough to beat me. Gotta love mike floyd on my bench today after 5 weeks as a starter for me!!! Oh and Kenny britt on my bench is more fluky. Depressing. Very depressing. So my std league is done.
    Oh and then in my 0.5 ppr game time decision thurs night my opponent puts in mike Evans and sit watkins so gonna lose there too but at least can battle for playoffs

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: haha didn’t even see davante Adams has a td. That great too. Blahhhh
      This is why you don’t draft ap, Doug, Stacey, Jordan Cameron as your first 4 picks

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Zandy: Which I would have said is a good team, so we’re probably in the same boat… and I wouldn’t feel bad about Britt. It’s his annual WTF game.

        • Zandy says:
          (link)

          @Jay: yea the Floyd hurts way more than britt. But I think it wouldn’t have even mattered. Maybe your chargers can get 3 pick 6s…

              @Jay: what happened with Rudolph? Was he even targeted?

              • goodfold2 says:
                (link)

                @Zandy: no targets. at all. we might want to just assume bridgewater is awful enough to not even have rudolph left with any value. rankings were actually right about mason over olsen, which i REALLY didn’t think would happen.

                • Jay

                  (link)

                  @goodfold2: Yeah, it was a pretty terrible performance by that offense, which is strange. The Bears defense is pretty awful.

    having anything to do with WAS, and the rudolph situation is scaring the hell out of me in 2 leagues with my TE’s, reed and rudolph.
    League 1: (where a good team also just sucked up the often productive owen (sunny) D yesterday as a backup) options: clay/ASJ (jesus, 1 target today)/rudolph (HAHA)/cook (could it be this guy?), or stick with Reed (two shitty games in a row, since RG3 is back)

    League 2. same options exactly except replace reed with owen (sunny) D.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Mantis Toboggan MD: Based on those options, sticking with Reed isn’t the worst thing. But I’d go with Owen’s in League 2.
