If you’re reading this, congrats! You’re still playing meaningful games! Either you’re winning that consolation bracket to have your league’s #1 pick next year (who will it be? Todd Gurley? Saquon Barkley? New York Jet Le’Veon Bell?!) Or, since you’re a Razzball reader, you’re on the march towards ANOTHER championship title over your chump friends. Take a long look at your bench — are there any guys on there who have 0 starts for you, but you’re just remembering years past when they were productive? Stop trying to make fetch happen — cut ties and grab one of these guys below who are more likely than the name value players you’ve been holding on to and hoping they’ll perform.

Your pal Zach is out this week so you have to deal with more of me. The league had a very busy day on Friday with Kareem Hunt being sent home, then being put on the commissioner’s exempt list, and then being cut by the Chiefs all together. Moral of the story, keep your hands and feet to yourself and if you fail to, own up to your mistakes. As for your opinions on what Kareem Hunt’s future should look like, I’m not interested in them.

That’s right, I am right smack-dab in the middle of a November blizzard. So far, I have shoveled the driveway twice today and it’s probably going to happen a third time. I can’t stress enough how depressing this is considering it was over 50 degrees on Thanksgiving. The terrible thing about being an adult is in the manufacturing industry I don’t think that they have snow days. At least, I have never heard of it. I upgraded my car situation last summer, so that excuse is out the window too. It’s now in the middle of the second quarter of the night game when I am finally getting a chance to start this so I am most likely going to keep it pretty short.

Adam Humphries, 2.7%, vs WSH: I told you to grab him after week 9 — you only have yourself to blame! This is now the third week in a row where Humphries was second to Mike Evans in targets, however Evans and Humphries couldn’t have had two different days. Humphries was the second-highest scoring WR in the league while Evans only hauled in 1 of his 10 targets for 16 yards…

David Moore (vs LAC): Moore enjoyed his third straight double-digit fantasy point game and third-straight game with a TD reception. He’s doing this on not a lot of receptions (average of 3 in his last 3 games,) but while Russell Wilson has his number he’s definitely worth picking up if he can continue building his chemistry with Wilson.

D.J. Moore (vs TB): Moore finished Sunday’s game against the Ravens first in receptions, yards and targets in their receiving game for 17 fantasy points. Ifb is really having shoulder issues he could continue to dump short and medium length passes to Moore. In week 8 his longest reception was only 33 yards and in the three weeks prior to that it was only 20 yards. Moore is going to benefit from Cam’s less.

I’ll warn you right now — there aren’t a lot of great QB fill in options this week. Lots of tough match-ups or under performing players. I had to recommend what remains of Teddy Bridgewater for Pete Carroll’s sake! You won’t see him listed in this article, but my prediction from last week of Colin Kaepernick getting a job still remains! Even if he’s now suing the exact people who could possibly offer him a job…

This week will see the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans getting the week off. You’ll need help replacing Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson, Lamar Miller, DeAndre Hopkins, Golden Tate and Ameer Abdullah.

Now that my little Fantasy Football science experiment is over I’m going to change things up a little bit. You wouldn’t believe all the hate mail I got in the past couple of weeks. It seems my ESPN accounts have been locked out and someone even toilet papered my front yard. Enough is enough. Going forward I’m just going to give you my top six picks for the week. The only rule for a pick is that a player cannot be considered a stud to be eligible. Recommending Antonio Brown helps no one.

Before we get started let’s quickly see how I did last week…

Well, every single player in the NFL got injured in Week 4. At least it feels that way. Now you are forced to sort through the backups and rubble to salvage your season. Do. Not. PANIC! Plenty of good streaming fliers out there to keep you afloat. If you read the Razzball suite of articles you’ll be wearing your league’s championship belt before you know it! Let’s get into it!

If you’ve got any league-specific questions drop ‘em in the comments below and I’ll reply before the Wednesday waiver deadline.

I’m no sage. And, as Jay always points out, I’m no expert. I can’t see the future, and I can’t accurately predict the outcome each week. One thing I can do, though? Look to the past to determine what may happen in the future. That’s called wisdom. And in fantasy sports it’s one of the best possible things you can do. Trends and trajectories, consensus and conjecture. It’s all a part of the game, but if you read it right you can get a step up on the competition. Which is why we’re here. Well, I’m here, at least…
