Thursday wasn’t entertaining enough for you? That’s fine. The NFL has 12 games today and at least a few of them should do the trick. If you missed any content this week, be sure to head back and check out the great stuff that you might have missed. Check out the rankings from JayZach, and myself. Also, you can check out Rudy’s depth charts that are regularly updated and if you’re a DFS player there is nothing better than our premium content. YOU GET A 7 DAY FREE TRIAL. Ray Rice can’t even beat that. Oh really? Bad Ray Rice jokes in 2018? Well, Eminem put out an album in 2018 so why can’t I act in poor taste too?

Weather

As of now, the only games that are going to get slippery are the Browns and the Steelers in Cleveland and the Ravens and Bills in Buffalo. Right, like that game needed any help being low scoring. There’s a slight chance of rain in Miami and in New York as well. There is a 0% chance of rain in any of the indoor games.

Injuries

Devante Parker Out

Will Fuller Questionable

Sony Michel Questionable

…. Wow, that’s pretty short list, even for week 1. It must be all of that safer tackling, I tell ya!

Feel free to chat with me about line ups in the comment section. And follow me on twitter.

    Need some lineup help. 3 different types of leagues with similar WR choices. Can you help me with one from each?

    1) Standard – Demaryius, Baldwin, G. Tate or Robby Anderson?

    2) 1pt PPR – Baldwin, E. Sanders or G. Tate?

    3) .5 PPR – A. Rob, E. Sanders or R. Anderson?

    Thanks.

    In a ppr I need 2 of these rbs..
    Henry
    Hyde
    J Williams
    Powell

    I’m thinking Williams and Hyde they should get majority of touches and Hyde will get catches.
    Thanks

      I like Henry more than Williams but yes Hyde is a good play

    Hi,
    12 team .5 ppr.
    I made two trades can you tell me what you think?

    1. I get: bell and Schuster
    I give: a.collins, graham and t. Cohen

    2. I get Conner and Jeffrey
    I give: Goodwin and Edelman

    So basically I got bell, Conner, Schuster for Collins, Goodwin, graham, Cohen and Edelman

    Also

      @James: that’s good, just have to hope Bell returns soon!

  4. Gurley Man says:
    (link)

    Marlon Mack is supposed to test his hamstring in the pre-game warmups. I’d put the odds under 50/50 he plays but seems like a true game time decision. Wilkins could have a nice game if Mack sits. Castonzo is in the same boat as Mack FWIW.

    • MB

      @Gurley Man: testing before the game is never a good sign

  5. Corey says:

    Manny Sanders

    Foooootballlll!!!!

    Full pt ppr 12 team league

    Amari Cooper or JuJu? (Weather an issue in Cleveland)

    Lesean McCoy or Dalvin Cook ( Read Cook will be on a pitch count)

    Thanks in advance
    JRJ

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @JohnRamboJr: Even though weather might be an issue, I still think you should go with JuJu. Cook by far, he won’t be on a pitch count, according to DeFilippo.

    Hello

    10 team .5 PPR. Due to picking up Conner, I now can only start one of Drake, Lynch, Hyde or Barber. Thoughts? Whatever you say right now is what I’m going to do just FYI

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: Drake, by far. I’ve got high hopes for him this week

  9. William Hung says:

    .5 PPR – Peyton Barber, Derrick Henry, or Duke Jr?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Barber. Tough matchup but he’ll be locked in for 20+ carries this week

  10. TT says:
    (link)

    Hi, need some help here. A PPR league.
    QB : Pick one – Wilson, Mariota. Or I can drop Mariota for Dalton.
    WR : – Pick 2 – AJ Green, E Sanders, A Cooper
    DEF: I am going to bench HOU but I need to pick one from FA. Detroit, Carolina, TEN, DAL, or Kansas?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @TT: Wilson even with the tough matchup, Green and Sanders, and Carolina

  11. Theimp says:

    PPR 1Q/2RB/3WR/1T no flex 12 team shallow bench
    Luck
    DJohnson/McCoy//Burkhead/Lynch
    Beckham/Evans/Landry//Edelman/Jeffery
    Walker

    1) Ended up getting two WR stashes. Who do you like out of Edelman and Jeffrey as injuries or waiver wire intrigue makes one of these guys hard to hold?
    2) What are the greatest concerns you’d have about this teams makeup?

    Good luck this week

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Theimp: I don’t really have any big complaints with this team, and I don’t mind holding onto Jeffery and Edelman either

  12. Pink Doves says:

  13. Ricardo says:

    In PPR, playing J Gordon or ARob?

      @JohnnyBeGood: Cleveland weather sounds rough so I’d go A Rob and Goodwin

  18. btristan55 says:

    Full point PPR. Need a WR out of this list.

    Sterling Shephard
    Chris Godwin
    Geronimo Allison

    My gut has been urging me to go with Allison, but is that a terrible decision?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      It’s really not a terrible play. Sterling Shepherd is probably safest

  19. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Standard, playing a stacked team, looking for ceiling at WR2. My normal play, Goodwin, gets MIN and Rhodes. Stick with him, or go with Ross @ IND or Cole @ NYG?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: While I do like the upside Ross brings to the table, he’s still an unknown fantasy asset, so I’d lean Goodwin for right now

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Ross has the highest ceiling. Easy matchup, could go off

  20. Boo BS says:

    Weather concerns…Gordon is my flex now. Ross or D. Walker instead?

    I started using razzball for football advice 4 years ago – i’m 0-4 in trying to make the playoffs. This is my 5th year, and going into week 1 I had both Fournette and Baldwin – needless to say it looks like 0-5 unless I can work some WW magic

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: i heard fournette at least walked off himself, and with baldwin (my first time owning him ever in only one total league just now this year) it wasn’t to the knee he already had injured, so that’s a possible positive.

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: join more than 1 league per year, that way you won’t have as much time to lament doing badly in the one. also, if you are in TONS of leagues, you start not to worry as much about certain players doing well or not doing well, as you’ll DEF have SOMEBODY doing well SOMEWHERE.

        @MB: i sure hope he didn’t mean that implication here. there is one writer around here that advised people to buy luck last year even into early sept, but i don’t think that was you, and even then that’s ONE player.

        ask him about rizzo in his h2h league if he DID mean that implication.

    probably won’t be benching mahomes for rodfather due to bad matchups anymore in 2 QB league, gave away 15 pts almost, will still win easily (d-jax, kamara, k.allen, AAron later), and rodfather didn’t even do that badly. 4 TD throws vs what is supposed to be a very good LAC D (NO and LAC supposed to be very good D’s)

  37. TT says:

    TE – need help with replacements.
    I got D Walker and Doyle on my team. Looks like Walker will be gone for a while.
    FA on my league:
    Seals-Jones, Jared Cook, Brate, Seferian-Jenkins, E Ebron, B Watson, Austin Hooper, A Gates

    Any suggestions?

    well well well, PPR 12 teamer with 10 return yards per point, intended on targeting at least one of crowder or more esp cohen/lockett, but then i wanted to make sure i got one of wentz/luck, right after i did that i went highest drafted TE i’ve done all year in walker, now he sounds out for a very long time. upon drafting walker (should’ve just done the doyle i’ve been doing much more often everywhere this year for much cheaper) crowder/cohen/lockett all went in the next 4 picks. oh yeah, and the 3 spots i have wentz i grabbed mariota to use till he’s back, and this is financially my most important league as well. in all this shit i’m somehow likely to win this week and waivers are weekly from standings so i’ll be 7th or worse.
    QB (1) mariota/wentz
    RB (2) barkley (broke a big one but if not that would’ve been ugly), royce (MF’ing timeshare), ajayi, coleman, clement (handcuff), booker (thought he was handcuff, will attempt drop for either lindsey or possibly a backup TE in 2 nights if we’re sure walker is gone all year)
    WR (2) k.allen, fitz, cobb, hurns, callaway (was ridley, i dropped after that ATL game where he wasn’t used, also callaway COULD’VE been a return guy, wasn’t, clearly he’s a drop now)
    TE (1) walker
    IR (1) jeffery
    kicker: prater
    DEF: BAL

    1. this look like good order to drop callaway for one of these: grant, brown (BAL), dede (like i thought, eventually used more than cole), ginn, j.grant MIA (27.2 points this week from returns AND some actual catches)

    2. drop hurns for a 2nd of these?

    3. best order for either dropping walker himself (if it’s pretty sure he’s gone a long time, which sounds likely) or dropping somebody else (i’m making so many WW claims here it’s very likely i’m not winning all these guys): dissly, j.smith (walker’s replacement), watson, ebron, hooper, gesicki, willson?

    4. doesn’t sound like i should be holding mariota here (he’s vs HOU and with the rest of my team it doesn’t sound like i have room for 3 QB’s to wait for mariota AND wentz), so drop him for which of (week 2’s matchups, WW’s go off monday night late (3 AM ish tuesday))
    keenum vs OAK
    flacco @ CIN
    eli @ DAL
    fitz vs PHI
    this sounds like an easy keenum.

    5. RB replacement order for booker: lindsay, yeldon, hines, murphy BUF (20.5 pts from returns mostly, and THAT team is going to be getting a TON of those all year)

    hopefully we get news that walker is out all year early (like in the next 52 hours) IF he’s going to be out long, so i can replace whatever positions i’m dropping for like positions, it makes WW claims MUCH easier.

    6. and i’m guessing since i just lost a pretty high drafted starter (walker) i should make my top claim the TE replacement here?

  39. Dylan says:
    (link)

    (PPR League) (#2 on waiver order)
    Just lost Delanie Walker and best guys on the wire is Doyle and Eiffert. I have a pretty solid running core with Kamara,Gordon,Lewis,Cook, and Thompson. Would you make a 1 for 1 trade Melvin Gordon for Gronkoski? Or keep Gordon and grab someone off the wire?

    • Better Call Limehouse says:
      (link)

      @Dylan: 10 teamers are nice. take doyle/eifert (set claims for both) over walker.

    I went a little RB crazy in my auction and landed Kareem Hunt, Christian McCaffrey AND Dalvin Cook in a 2 RB no flex league. I know I need to flip one for an elite WR but I’m torn who to cut bait on. Thoughts? It’s a half-PPR league.
