Jimmy Graham, Thumb: After the notification went out that Graham broke his thumb in week 11 I think all of his owners threw their phones against the wall. Then a second notification went off saying Graham is going to try and play through it we all picked up our shattered phones confused. It’ll be interesting to see what type of metal claw the Packers medical staff rigs up to make Graham able to play. I hope it looks like Clay Matthews’s club hand with fake tape finger claws. My take: Won’t play. At least for this first week I don’t think he’ll be in the lineup until the Packers rebuild him. They have the technology.

My Bills took it on the chin again (going to be saying that quite a bit the rest of the next two seasons) as the Bears smacked Nathan Peterman around all day in a game that was downright offensive to the modern NFL offenses. I actually watched that entire game and then the New Orleans – LA Rams game and it felt like I was watching two different sports. Let’s get into some of the games from this past weekend…

Week 8 of Propageddon featured the tie to honor the firing of Hue Jackson. Three touts tied at 10 out of 14 correct: last week’s winner Pat Fitzmaurice (@Fitz_FF), Brandon Gdula (@Gdula13), and our own Rudy Gamble (@rudygamble). There was also a three-way tie on the reader side at 9 correct: @andrewkdewhirst (second straight), @evanklotzman, and gt.sundown. Any of you could have taken solo possession of first by grabbing the bonus point for sharing the post. Perhaps you’ll consider it this week. At stake is not only a free 7-day trial of Rudy’s tools, but Rudy will name his next predictatronomizer after the best reader (maybe). To get the extra credit just share your favorite prop of the week on any social media. THIS WEEK’S PROPS are live so get crunching. You can see the response distribution of the touts here.

Is it not the most awkward damn trolley you’ve ever seen? That it will be on display in Buffalo of all places with a decent chance of vandalism in the forecast for it only makes me more excited for the Pats blowout of the Bills on MNF. While Booger rails against logic and analytics throughout the broadcast and Jason Witten bumbles through introductory 3rd grade math, there is a non-0% chance a member of the #BillsMafia will make a leap of faith from the stands onto the #BoogerMobile. But before that game takes place, there are a couple from the Sunday slate that are worth looking at.

I’ve reached the final evolution of this column I think. From now on, these wounded warriors will be listed alphabetically and for each of them I’ll be giving you my take on whether or not they’ll play and whether or not you should start him in your line-up.

Let me know what you think of this format and if there are any changes you’d like me to make. And as always, drop a comment in the comment section below and follow me on Twitter: @Kerry_Klug!

Another slow evolution of this column — now I’m listing every player who is questionable or doubtful and I’ll be filing them under “Would Start” or “Wouldn’t Start.” Many of these “questionable” designations are just formalities, but they should be ready to go. However, some of them, like Kelvin Benjamin should be ready to go — but I don’t know if you should be starting him even if he was 3,000% healthy. They’re also all sorted alphabetically so just slowly scan through each section with your fingers crossed that your player is filed under the “Would Start” heading.

If you’ve got specific questions about any of your players feel free to drop a comment or follow me on Twitter to throw a question my way: @KerryKlug

In last week’s edition of this column I told you “Unfortunately as the season goes on there will be more players in this column.” And good lord did I underpromise and did the NFL over-deliver. I forgot that grown men running into each other at breakneck speeds (pun not intended, but regretted) are more likely […]

Which Baldwin suits you best? There are many Baldwins. Alec Baldwin is the most successful of the Baldwin brothers. He’s in my favorite movie, The Departed. He plays the president on Saturday Night Live. He’s starred in a movie with Meryl Streep and other big movies like The Hunt For Red October. The man stayed busy on television as well, starring in 30 Rock and a role in Will And Grace. Along with acting, Baldwin also is a vegan. I didn’t know that.
