thanksgiving-football

With all the Thanksgiving Day games in the books, the leftovers (see what I did there?) seem like a downgrade match-up wise. But judging from the dumpster fire of games we actually did have with three NFC marquee match-ups, this will probably be the best Sunday of games ever! (With the Browns and Bills leading the charge. Ugh… you’re right, it’ll probably be just more sh*tty football.) Even then, the Chargers vs. Ravens has interesting playoff implications, with the Broncos taking on the Chiefs for Sunday Night Football. There are scenarios where each team could end up in first in the AFC West. And, of course, there’s the Patriots vs. Packers game that will be heralded as the overused “potential Super Bowl match-up” descriptor, but moreso than other times, it’s easy to see the scenario. And if those games aren’t enough to satisfy the end to your holiday weekend, boy do I have a treat for you: The Titans take on the Texans in what is sure to be the best three hours ever…

      @Dom B: Walker today.

    12 team half ppr. I am 7-5 and pretty solid for playoffs.

    Start 2RB/2WR/Flex.

    RBs – Charles, Ellington, CJ, Mason (first 2 will obv fill these slots)

    WRs – G Tate, Evans, Landry, Edelman, Wayne. Tate started thurs, so need 1 here.

    Flex – have CJ there right now.

    Thinking edelman or Landry as Cincy has been tough vs pass, Evans plays them. Your take?

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @Frank: don’t overthink it with Evans v Cin–start him. At RB I think CJ is actually your #2 option this week, and Flex is close between Ellington and Mason. I’d still probably go Ellington because of the Falcons but wouldn’t be surprised if Mason outscores him, esp. if the Cards are serious about Bush as a possible vulture.

      • Frank says:
        (link)

        @Steve Stevenson: Cool. Yea Evans and CJ have been hot so I’ll prob roll with them. Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Frank: I’d still do Evans there, but everything else looks good. Would love to start Mason somehow, but nye impossible.

  3. Oppo Taco says:

    Keenan Allen @balt
    Mathews @ Balt
    Sammy Watkins @cleve (Hayden)

  4. Cole says:

    Standard yahoo league pick one of each:
    -WR: Denard Robinson, Sammy Watkins, or Martavis Bryant
    -RB: Jeremy Hill, Giovanni Bernard, or Denard Robinson

    • Cole says:
      (link)

      @Cole: also Ryan Matthews for Rb

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Cole: I’d go Mathews instead of Hill then.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Cole: Bryant and Hill.

      • Cole says:

        @Jay: thanks Jay

  5. dirtyd says:

    Which terrible QB play do you go with? Matt Ryan vs Az, Mccown vs Cincy, Mettenberger @ Hou, or Mccoy @ Indy?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @dirtyd: Ryan. Which is hard to stomach that he’s being rightfully compared to these guys…

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: ugh, stuck with this hump when brady was dropped right when ryan was about 1 month into being better than brady.

  6. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey jay, I see you ranked Mathews far ahead of Ingram. Do you think Ingram is going to put up another dud against the Steelers? Mathews mAtchup against the Baltimore front 7 might be troublesome…

    Also K Allen or M Bryant at WR3, non-ppr…I have Bryant in but Allen has started to come on & the Balty secondary sux…then again so is NO secondary (against m Bryant)…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Not so much Ingram laying an egg, but I have loved the way Mathews has looked since coming back. It’s a gamble and a feeling on my part, but I’m expecting a big game from him. And I’d probably go Bryant there. But if it’s my team, I’m starting all Chargers for obvious reasons.

  7. Dave The Barber says:
    (link)

    Standard Non-PPR 12 Team League:

    Start 3 out of:

    MIke Evans
    Kelvin Benjamin
    Julio Jones
    Jeremy Hill

      • Dave The Barber says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Is the Cardinals’ secondary banged up?

  8. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Also Kelvin b or Roddy w

    • Dom B says:
      (link)

      Or for jax

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dom B: Kelvin.

  9. Bryan says:
    (link)

    Tre Mason or Jeremy Hill
    and
    Olsen or Kelce

    Other than looking at rankings any insight on who to choose? Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bryan: Mason and Olsen. Just like those guys better.

  10. The Thumb says:

    Sanders at KC or Denard vs. NYG for flex?

  11. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Wusup Jay hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!! I know you put up your rankings but you would really start Rivera over Donnell or Sims?? If not then what order would you start them?? PPR

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: thanks, you too! I’d go Donnell

  12. Twhiskey says:

  13. Kevin says:

      @Kevin: Blount.

  14. John Rambo Jr says:
    (link)

    You have Gio and Crowell listed really close together in your rankings. TB D has looked better of late vs the Buffalo D and the weather that can affect the other match ups ability to move the ball.

    Any further thoughts you can share on this situation?

    Happy Thanksgiving,

    JRJ

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @John Rambo Jr: thanks, you too! It’s a coinflip for me. I might go crowell since he doesn’t have to deal with hill.

    • Flowers misses his old glasses, but he's ok tho says:
      (link)

      @John Rambo Jr: you don’t hunt a MAN!

  15. Bobby says:
    (link)

    Hey man do you like The Crow today @ buffalo? Or start martivis bryant over crow @ flex

    Tough call gio or jeremy hill @ TB plus side tackling monster lavonte David is out

  16. thesportsguy says:

    Lafell, Sanu or S Smith?

  17. Nick says:
    (link)

    rudolph or reed as backup to witten in a 10-team non-ppr? Thanks Jay!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: @Nick: Reed at this point.

  18. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    dammit, reed finally has a good week (it just took getting RG Free the F out), right as i drop him for d.walker (who on a per game basis was a top 6 TE on the year). i even know IND is the worst team at TE’s, but reed has burned me WAY too many times this year (and was coming back from injury), i won’t miss playoffs from this, but i will lose to a team that going into today i was 253 pts better than (rivers finally doing well, and STL D). that team and me will be 6-7 but i’ll get in from having 230ish more pts than him on year. Shitty part is had i beat him i’d be playing a team next week that i’m 103 pts better than (2nd seed is a joke that he has that record, dude is really 7th best team), instead i’ll get the 2nd best pts team (actually better than me, and he has next week’s OAK opp). So i’ll likely go out from 2 teams beating me that happened to have the D going against OAK. At least i played Reed over Garcon in another league.

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: i see this may have been somewhat caused by mettenberger going out. which of these for next week. (at least k.wright finally had a good week, not sure if that’s his first all year, i’ve dropped him in 3 leagues by now)
      reed vs STL (16th vs TE’s)
      rudolph vs NYJ (32nd, could be him, 2 somewhat useful weeks in a row)
      walker vs NYG (31st against)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: Yeah, can’t believe Reed was able to put that together. The game of fantasy football…

  19. goodfold2 says:
    (link)

    FINALLY! DEEP DYNASTY PEOPLE’s UNITE! Lee had 2 good games in a row.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @goodfold2: Crazy draft class for WRs.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Jay: supposedly best ever WR (based on numerous sources from back in May) class ever.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @goodfold2: at this point, you’d have to yes.

  20. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay! So I have Andre Ellington as my rb 2 and he is down with an injury pending injury if out would you pick up his backup and start him I would have to drop Charles Sims to do so or start Fred Jackson until Ellington comes back. or both drop Sims for Ellington backup and start fax thx

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: Try Sims, higher ceiling there.

  21. Dom B says:
    (link)
