In what was a interesting-because-it-was-close-but-sorta-kinda-boring-anyways Sunday Night Football game, Dallas once again proved that they are two different teams depending on which half it is. It’s almost as if they are preserving the long-held tradition of Romonobyl. An homage, if you will. While the Saints are hanging on to dear life and Brees’ busted shoulder with an 1-3 record, they’d be hard pressed to catch up with the surging Falcons and Panthers as the season progresses. I’m actually still bewildered by the fact that NFC South teams are actually capable of surging. That being said, the Cowboys find themselves in the untenable position of having everything needed to dominate a weak NFC East, but having those things injured for more than half the season (including Lance Dunbar tearing his ACL last night). The Giants were gifted a win against Buffalo, who had 17 penalties, and the Eagles were beaten unresoundingly by Washington. These teams are not good at all, and hilariously any one of them can take the division. But like the Cowboys, none of them seem to want it. Almost like some kind of derpy game of hot potato. Now that I think about it, this is actually peak NFC East. Carry on…

Here’s what else I saw in Week 4:

New to Daily Fantasy Football? Try out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. (Played on FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)

Matt Asiata – 1 CAR, 3 YDS. Why is Asiata still a thing? I used up all my cheese and Animal Farm jokes last season…

Giovani Bernard – 13 CAR, 62 YDS, 1 TD. That’s right Gio. Continue to siphon points from Jeremy Hill (9 CAR, 40 YDS, 3 TD) you f*cking fantasy vampire.

Blake Bortles – 28/50, 298 YDS, 1 TD and 4 CAR, 31 YDS. Nothing quite like watching two titans of the sport duke it out… Blake Bortles versus Matt Hasselbeck (30/47, 282 YDS, 1 TD and 3 CAR, 1 YDS). Astounding. It was like they were trying to create a new level of hell…

Sam Bradford – 15/28, 270 YDS, 3 TD and 1 CAR, 14 YDS. I’ve been thinking about this, and I don’t think it’s that Bradford doesn’t fit in Chip Kelly’s system. I think it’s that he doesn’t fit in football. Granted, the three touchdowns are nice, but he continues to struggle making quick reads, and his offensive line and receivers are something terrible. It’s certainly not all his fault, but he’s far from being what everyone expected going into the season. A run game would help… haha, nevermind.

Teddy Bridgewater – 27/41, 269 YDS, 1 TD and 3 CAR, 23 YDS, 1 FUM. Spent most of the day trying to master the “spin away from defender only to get sat on by Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware” move. Let’s just say he mastered it quite well.

Jaron Brown – 1 REC, 20 YDS. Jaron Brown has to be the Cardinals’ number one receiver in dropped passes at important times. You ever wonder if Carson Palmer, after all those CTE’s, confuses him with John Brown (7 REC, 75 YDS)? It would explain a lot.

Riley Cooper – 2 REC, 72 YDS, 1 TD. It figures Riley Cooper would excel in a stadium dedicated to a racial epithet.

Kirk Cousins – 31/46, 290 YDS, 1 TD and 1 CAR, 1 YDS. Cousins was 31-for-46? What in the actual f*ck?

Michael Crabtree – 5 REC, 80 YDS. THIS BEARS DEFENSE, I CALL IT JULIAN ASSANGE BECAUSE IT’S FULL OF LEAKS. Told you these Grudenisms would get danker.

Andy Dalton – 17/24, 321 YDS, 1 TD and 3 CAR, 16 YDS. This happy, competent, and confident Andy Dalton is weird and confusing to me. I don’t understand it, and I won’t respond to it.

Stefon Diggs – 6 REC, 87 YDS. Broncos: “Who is this Diggs guy?” Vikings: “(Shrugs.) Damned if I know.”

Lance Dunbar – 3 CAR, 54 YDS. Dance Lumbar. Rance Dunbal. Ancel Unbard. Lanbar Dunce. I can’t choose a favorite and love them all equally. Tore his ACL or MCL last night, we’ll know which one later today, but the Cowboys’ curse continues to wreak havoc. At this stage, stigmata seems very likely.

Mike Evans – 3 REC, 32 YDS. Can Mike Evans just move under center and start throwing himself the ball? For f*ck’s sake…

Ryan Fitzpatrick – 16/29, 218 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 9 CAR, 34 YDS. Jets keep going with the rarely seen prevent offense AND prevent defense. Seems to be working, but man is it boring to watch. What happened to the Jets I used to love?

Devonta Freeman – 14 CAR, 68 YDS, 3 TD and 5 REC, 81 YDS. Teams might want to practice this new “tackling” concept the NFL has introduced… Honestly, I have no idea what’s going on with Freeman. It’s clear he’s a RB2 at this point and a must start, but I can’t even begin to tell you how long this will last. His first two games, he had a YPC under 2.0 and a total of 22 carries for 43 yards, including a pretty mediocre rookie campaign last year. Those two games were against the Eagles and Giants, pretty good rush defenses thus far, so the Falcons game aginst Washington in Week 5 should tell us a lot more of where he’s at, as their defense against the run has been pretty underrated thus far.

Nick Foles – 16/24, 171 YDS, 3 TD and 1 CAR, -1 YDS.Has he passed Kaepernick as the third best quarterback in the NFC West yet? Because he totally managed the sh*t out of game against the Cardinals.

Arian Foster – 8 CAR, 10 YDS, 1 FUM and 3 REC, 25 YDS. So Houston’s kind of terrible these days, eh? Foster’s first game back since dealing with his yearly “ef your team I’m going to get hurt” injury, he looked a bit, restricted. With a short turn-around coming up for Week 5’s Thursday night game against the Colts, I’d expect a little higher snap count, but it’s apparently they want to bring him back slowly.

garcongamewinner

Pierre Garçon – 7 REC, 55 YDS, 1 TD. Garçon dedicated that TD reception to the child he can no longer remember the name of or recognize.

Frank Gore – 17 CAR, 53 YDS and 5 REC, 34 YDS. Frank Gore sure seems to be making Indianapolis long for the days of Trent Richardson.

Todd Gurley – 19 CAR, 146 YDS and 2 REC, 15 YDS. This guy just might have what it takes to play the game of football.

Ronnie Hillman – 11 CAR, 103 YDS, 1 TD and 1 REC, 5 YDS. I really do love the idea of Ronnie Hillman being the solution to the Broncos’ run game, because fast running backs are awesome to watch. However, having drafted C.J. Anderson (11 CAR, 43 YDS and 1 REC, 27 YDS) in some leagues, I hate this idea.

Brian Hoyer – 17/30, 232 YDS, 2 TD. Anyone in 3-QB leagues who started Hoyer? Today’s your day my friend… And if this means DeAndre Hopkins (9 REC, 157 YDS) can start doing things related to football activities, then by all means, bring back the Hoyer Country.

Allen Hurns – 11 REC, 116 YDS, 1 TD. More like Allen Burns, amiright folks?

Chris Ivory – 29 CAR, 166 YDS, 1 TD. Letting Ivory do this was literally the most Dolphins thing I’ve ever seen.

Vincent Jackson – 10 REC, 147 YDS, 1 TD. Man, can you imagine how good Vincent Jackson would have been all these seasons if Tampa Bay had something other than a potted plant playing quarterback?

Chris Johnson – 16 CAR, 83 YDS and 3 REC, 11 YDS. Johnson has been a capable starter for us two weeks so far. Anything more than that is a blessing and we should never expect any more than that.

Duke Johnson Jr. – 8 CAR, 31 YDS and 9 REC, 85 YDS, 1 TD. Not sure where Johnson came from (but Smokey sure did!), and this could have easily been a case of San Diego getting coached to play down to Cleveland’s level, which I’ve seen time and time again in both the McCoy and Norv era’s. But I did like the pass-catching ability and speed. In PPR leagues, I think he’s depth you should own, and something to think about in standard leagues.

Matt Jones – 7 CAR, 11 YDS. Matt Jones looked more like Barnaby Jones. Alfred Morris (17 CAR, 62 YDS and 2 REC, 3 YDS) got the majority of carries, and the split will continue. Keep in mind too, that the Eagles run defense is pretty good so far, so don’t get too discouraged if you own either.

Colin Kaepernick – 13/25, 160 YDS, 1 INT and 10 CAR, 57 YDS. Jesus, this season just needs to end for them at this point. At this point, a 49ers game ticket is the cheapest rent in the San Francisco area.

Jarvis Landry – 4 REC, 40 YDS and 2 CAR, 29 YDS. Of course the Dolphins don’t do well in London… you try swimming over there.

Peyton Manning – 17/27, 213 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT and 2 CAR, -2 YDS. So the first thing Manning does after he retires is ousting Papa John from the company, right? I’m just bringing this up because this is going to happen sooner than later. It’s the first season where Manning is a huge liability for his team, and I just don’t see how he’d come back and do it again.

Brandon Marshall – 7 REC, 128 YDS. Marshall just needed some Blood Sugar Fitz Magik.

Lamar Miller – 7 CAR, 26 YDS and 1 REC, 10 YDS. “I’m just here so I don’t get fined.” Lamar Miller.

Donte Moncrief – 6 REC, 75 YDS. More like Donte Monqueef, amiright? Alright, alright, he wasn’t terrible, and not having Luck is a huge blow, and with him doubtful for Thursday night’s game against Houston, you might have better options on your roster.

DeMarco Murray – 8 CAR, 36 YDS and 2 REC, 12 YDS. Murray just doubled his numbers for the season. So that’s nice.

Carson Palmer – 29/46, 352 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. Is “being the 49ers” contagious and did Carson Palmer and the Cardinals catch a case of it last week?

Cordarrelle Patterson – 1 REC, 9 YDS. Cordarrelle Patterson is still on the team? Holy sh*t.

Adrian Peterson – 16 CAR, 81 YDS, 1 TD and 4 REC, 13 YDS. Unfortunately for the Broncos (and the Vikings), no one’s surprised anymore when Peterson tries to switch it up.

Jordan Reed – 5 REC, 37 YDS, 1 FUM. Fact: You need a reed to play the saxophone. Fact: You don’t need a Reed to get a win.

Philip Rivers – 23/38, 258 YDS, 3 TD and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. Is there a difference between losing to the Browns and winning a close game against the Browns? Both taste like failure to me.

Allen Robinson – 4 REC, 80 YDS. Blake Bortles Bomb Burns Backs Badly!

Torrey Smith – 2 REC, 54 YDS. Torrey Smith cut his dreads? I only ask because there isn’t really anything else relavant to talk about in reference to Smith or the 49ers.

Willie Snead – 6 REC, 89 YDS. Gesundheit.

C.J. Spiller – 2 CAR, 10 YDS and 5 REC, 99 YDS, 1 TD. Spiller isn’t dead? Who knew… I know it’s been a rough time owning him so far, and I recommended dropping him in the past for certain cases, basically if there was a player out there with a little bit more upside, but his snap count has been slowly increasing. I think he’s still a great player to have on your bench in PPR leagues, but in standard leagues, it becomes a little bit more negotiable.

Zac Stacy – 5 CAR, 7 YDS and 2 REC, 18 YDS. Zac Stacy appearance! Get me that .08 of a point, Zac!

stewartfumble

Jonathan Stewart – 10 CAR, 50 YDS. Holy mother of Benny Hill, Stewart…

Ryan Tannehill – 19/44, 198 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT and 1 CAR, 4 YDS. Watching Tannehill throw is like the opposite of looking at the Sistine Chapel ceiling. I wouldn’t be surprised if Philbin made a plea for refugee status from the Brits at this point.

Chris Thompson – 6 CAR, 53 YDS and 2 REC, 24 YDS. Chris Thompson making a name for himself, and that name is: Chris Thompson.

Roddy White – 2 REC, 8 YDS. Atlanta Falcons: 48 points. Roddy White: 0.80 points. Are you kidding me?

Brandon Weeden – 16/26, 246 YDS, 1 TD and 3 CAR, 5 YDS. Weeden spent most of the night looking like the Cowboys version of Drew Bledsoe in the pocket: stand perfectly still until you get sacked. He did look good at times last night, but you have to wonder if having to quarterback for the Browns has forever tainted him. I mean, maybe it’s like a Scarlet Letter with a brown “B” and you’re marked forever…

woodheadbeingwoody

Danny Woodhead – 8 CAR, 54 YDS and 4 REC, 84 YDS. Woodhead was always my favorite character to play in MarioKart.

T.J. Yeldon – 22 CAR, 105 YDS and 2 REC, 4 YDS. While this game had all the enthusiasm and pulse-pounding excitement of 1970’s era Masterpiece Theater, I continue to be impressed with Yeldon’s play.

 

Final Thought

My general reaction to the first month of this season and what it can tell us about next month.

    Rather lose by 50. Damn you Devonta Freeman.

        He had Ingram and Witten I had Spiller and was down 2 going into SNF.

  3. Nick says:
    (link)

    Morning Jay, boy did I luck out. That Randle goal-line bobble almost cost me a week 4 victory — if that call ended up being a TO, I would have been down 99-101 vs. Witten, but instead ended the night 107-106…I could tell from Garretts discussion with Randle that he was going to be practically benched the rest of the game regardless of call outcome & that is exactly what happened. Silver lining, Dunbar is hurt so now Randle will get involved in pass game with only DMC backing him up..

    On to week 5 waivers…I need to continue to work my bench in 10-teamer as AP is on bye week 5 leaving me with J Randle/D Murray at RB1/2 & Tre Mason/Joique Bell on bench. I feel I need to cut loose with both RBs on bench in favor of someone with time on the field. Options in non-ppr standard scoring league are Duke Johnson, A Andrews, Sims, T Ward, Polk or Stacy (not many good options but think I have to make a bid for D Johnson – followed by A Andrews, what you think?)

    Next at WR, I have Ty, Amari & Garcon as WR1/2/3 followed by bench of Hankerson & Marvin Jones. Do I hold or look to make a bid for N Agholor, T Austin, K Stills, T Ginn, T Smith, S Bailey, K Aiken, Michael & Malcolm Floyd, or W Snead? I could also drop my backup TE, Gates (I have Bennett til bye week 7) for another WR as there are quite a few TE on waivers (Daniels, L Green, Fleener, Barnidge, R Rodgers, J Thomas).

    Thanks as always!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yeah, I agree on Randle. I’d go Ward for Mason and Bell for Johnson. I’d hold for now.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: What is your level of desperateness for bench warmers in Ward & D Johnson? Placing an FAAB bid & I have just $55 of $100 left however I could really use the upgrade on the bench over Mason & J Bell…especially considering D Murray not looking good thus far & I have AP on bye next week, leaving me with D Murray/J Randle at RB1/2 & flexing with Hankerson, Marvin Jones or Gates (or one of these new acquisitions)..

        I assume Duke J will go for more FAAB $ than Ward (since Ward is 3rd string once ATL backfield healthy) but not sure how much to bid considering 7 other teams in this 10-teamer have more $ left than me…

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Not huge. Even with those guys, I think I’d rather start Murray and Randle during AP’s bye. Holding is okay here too.

          • Nick says:
            (link)

            @Jay: yeah no doubt was definitely planning on using D Murray/J Randle at RB1/2 next week but at flex I have options like Hankerson, Marvin Jones, Gates & D Johnson (if I get him off waivers)…which do you like best (standard league)?

            I’m thinking twice about the T Ward pickup though as he is probably just as likely to get some field-time as J Bell & T Mason (all will require an injury)…thinking I will target Duke Johnson & will decide if its Bell or Mason to cut based on tonight’s performance by Ameer. If he does not fumble & gets production, I’d probably cut J Bell loose…otherwise its Tre Mason getting cut as Gurley made quite the impression last week…makes sense, right? haha

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Nick: Johnson the best. I think Smokey was right on him. I agree, Ward is filler, but I still liked what I saw in garbage time, but he’s going to lose time once Coleman returns.

      @Jake: I’d say 60/40… that’s like what, 21 yards and a TD or a 90-yard non-td game? Both outcomes seem favorable.

    My roster:

    QB – Ryan
    WR – Julio
    WR – Evans
    WR – Robinson
    RB – Forte

    0.5 PPR – 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving/100 yards rushing – 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving/150 yards rushing

    2) Would you dump anyone for either Hillman, Duke, T.Austin?

    • Jay

      @Wilsonian: Tough one. I’d probably drop Garcon for Gates. And hold on 2.

  7. Clint says:

    Does anyone know anything regarding contractual obligations of CBS? It’s either that or straight up masochism that they forced me to watch the 48-21 drubbing of the Texans yesterday when it was 42-0 in the early 3rd quarter with both teams subbing QB’s. Meanwhile, I kept wondering what was going on in the Chiefs/Bengals or Vikes/Broncos games that WERE close. Why, Moonves, oh why???

    Regarding the Cowboys mopishness: I told one Cowboy fan if they won the games they’ll have a shot in like the Falcons, Giants, & Saints games while Romo’s gone they may be able to stay in the division running when the Seahawks/Pats whoopin’s come. He, in his eternally-deluded optimism, said ‘You really think we have zero shot in THOSE two games?’ as if the others were easy gimme wins. Welcome to Dallas professional football, where one playoff sighting in 20 years means you’re not only Super Bowl bound that season but going to go undefeated the following year as well because…?

      @Clint: It baffles me that with the success of NFL Redzone that networks aren’t allowed to switch out-of-market games.

      They have a tough four weeks coming up, that’s for sure.

    • RotoLance

      RotoLance says:
      (link)

      @Clint: The Vikes/Broncos played as part of the late afternoon slate, I think the other two were early, but also, when it’s an inter-conference game, the network that has the rights to the away team’s conference has the rights to that game (with rare exception). Which is to say the Vikings vs Broncos game was on Fox.

      • Clint says:
        (link)

        @RotoLance:
        I stand corrected but what about the Chiefs/Bungles? There HAD to be something else they could’ve cut to in the 3rd quarter. I felt like the dude in a Clockwork Orange wishing I still had my Sunday Ticket.

    Hiw do you like Tanny ROS with the coaching shakeup? In 12 team league that has 19 qbs owned (Bradford, Stafford, smith are amongst unowned) are you spending a roster spot to hold him over his bye? I’m leaning to hold given his relatively safe yardage floor but would love another take.

    The current drop is probably Wallace (ppr).

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The imp: Eh, I still like him better than those two. But I don’t think he’s bye safe.

      • The imp says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Sorry to not follow, but does this mean your drop is Tanny or Wallace for a week 5 qb? My other Wrs are Jeffery/Edelman/Arob/decker/wright. I had to carry so many wideouts to navigate week 4 problems.

    Hi Jay
    2 questions for you.

    1. Which of these RBs if any do you prefer over F Gore ROS? Standard scoring

    Yeldon, Hyde, L McCoy, G Bernard, D Murray,J Randle, Gurley, D Martin, J Forsett?

    2. Which if any of these WR would you prefer over A Robinson ROS?

    Moncrief, Cooper, J Landry, Tate, M Evans, A Jeffrey,D Hopkins,

    Thanks Jay

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wacha wacha: All of them except Bernard, Randle, Martin.

      Maybe Jeffery if he heals up. Hopkins and Cooper are pretty even with him. So is Evans.

    Wondering if I should buy low on lesean McCoy.. Current owner is 0-4 so a healthy body might be all it takes..

    I’ve got Lamar miller and frank gore to offer, which one would you feel better about parting with? The firing of philbin might be just what miller needs (more than 8 carries a game finally)

      @Bigdog: I think it’ll be that percentage until McCoy shows he’s fully mobile. I would love to buy low on him, but it’s for teams that have playoffs in mind.

      I’m fine letting go of both in a deal, but Miller has the higher upside.

    Here’s my dilemma….before yesterday’s game I traded Jeremy Maclin and Stevie Johnson for Mike Evans. The trade is due to go thru Oct 6th. I made the trade because although Maclin is beasting in receptions, Alex Smith is allergic to throwing TDs to receivers, plus Mike Evans ceiling is crazy. But Winston and Evans aren’t on the same page which resulted in 2 straight weeks of garbage fantasy stats. How do you feel about this trade? I’m in a Non PPR league.

      @Bishop413: I’m still fine with it. Be patient, I think Evans will come around.

    Thought id share my story about my fantasy football win yesterday…

    At the end of the afternoon games, both of our teams were done. Zero players to go.

    I get done watching my vikings lose to the broncos, no surprises there. At that point, I was up by 5.5 points with only the Rams Vs Cardinals finishing up their final minutes. My opponent (father in law) had todd gurley. Gurley goes left with a clear path to the endzone. Goes down to run out the clock and I look at the score… I win by .5 points!

    I wasnt upset at all when I saw gurley going for the endzone. I had just won my first fantasy baseball championship, so I couldnt have cared less. Epic day in my fantasy sports history book. :)

    If Forte is traded, will Langford be an RB2?
    In a 14-team league, is Andre Johnson worth picking up off waivers? (I already have Moncrief)
    Is Charles Johnson worth stashing or do you think his season is a write-off?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Butterfield: I’d say a RB3 and match-up play until we see how the team responds. It could get ugly there if it’s truly a fire sale. Both Johnson’s are worth a flyer in a league that deep, but it depends what you’re dropping.

      • Butterfield says:

        @Jay: Planning to drop Dunbar. I also have Helu, R. Randle, D. Allen, and D. Johnson on my bench.

        Free agents include: A. Johnson, C. Johnson, Funchess, Bell, D. Parker, Aiken, Riddick,

          @Butterfield: Aiken and Johnson for Dunbar and Helu isn’t crazy.

          • Butterfield says:

            @Jay: who has the most upside there? A Johnson?

              @Butterfield: Maybe. I think it’s pretty even. At this point, I think I’d go with AIken.

        @Jay: btw if sammy watkins doesnt play again, i would need a WR, who should i grab out of the free agents

        @Jay: Thanks for the quick reply, starting to loose faith in Cooks but I’ll hold for now. Thanks again and for all the time you put in.

    Jay, would you considering dropping Andre Johnson at this point or continue to hold for a bit longer? I could pick up Ruben Randle or Terrance Williams to replace him.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Jerry: I’d probably go with Williams right now.

  27. Butterfield says:

    Moncrief for Adams and Duke?

  28. Westly says:

    Full point PPR, dynasty.

    QB Newton
    RB Leveon Bell and Crow Antonio Andrews
    WR Mike Evans John Brown, Dez Bryant, Devante Parker and Britt
    TE Rudoplh and Allen

    Was just offered Randell Cobb for Dez straight up, which would help me short term but feel Dez is still top 3 dynasty wise. I’ll be 3-1 but have no clue when Dez coming back. Take a risk for a bump now or counter something like my Dez, Rudolph, Crow or Antonio Andrews for his Cobb, Arien Foster and Barnidge? Or am i shooting to high?
