“Alexa, what’s the weather like in Buffalo?” “Look outside moron.”

The great leader has spoken and global warming has been confirmed a hoax. I mean, with this much cold weather, how can the Earth be warming? It’s like, if the ice is melting, just get out the bourbon and more ice and enjoy the free air conditioning, maaaan. And if it is snow (prove it!), that’s fine too. I mean, if we can’t have the Game of Thrones premier until next summer, then lets bring it right to Buffalo, am I right? It just makes so much sense, kinda like how Ian Eagle should do play-by-play for porn. But if it isn’t snow (believe it!), we must accept that it’s either massive amounts of cocaine (settle down Michael Irvin, settle down) or the salt of dried tears from all the Julio Jones and Melvin Gordon owners out there. It’s okay, it’s totally normal to end your Fantasy Season like this. I read that on Facebook, the bastion of legitimate news, so I know it’s true. But don’t worry, if you’re looking for a distraction in a post-fantasy football world, or you need something to do the next four years, keep in mind that anything can be a dildo if you’re brave enough…

 

Nelson Agholor2 REC, 22 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 13 LONG, 4 TGTS. Did Wentz not get the word that Nelson Agholor can’t catch?

Matt Asiata11 CAR, 37 YDS, 3.4 AVG, 1 TD, 23 LONG and 2 REC, 14 YDS, 7.0 AVG, 8 LONG, 2 TGTS. The ground war with Asiata grinds to a halt…

Matt Barkley20/32, 212 YDS, 6.6 AVG, 1 TD, 92.2 RTG. Bring back Kyle Orton, at least he was drunk every game. #Drunklivesmatter.

Le’Veon Bell38 CAR, 236 YDS, 6.2 AVG, 3 TD, 33 LONG and 4 REC, 62 YDS, 15.5 AVG, 32 LONG, 5 TGTS. You never know when a Rex Ryan defense is going to show up, so don’t worry, I already filed the missing persons report.

Antonio Brown5 REC, 76 YDS, 15.6 AVG, 40 LONG, 11 TGTS. Pretty par for the course in Buffalo. Contain one of the best players in the NFL while forgetting the other one.

Randall Cobb3 REC, 33 YDS, 11.0 AVG, 25 LONG, 3 TGTS. So has anyone even begun to figure out what the deal with Cobb was this season? Was he injured? Is Cobb ever not injured? Who even knows if he actually is? He has some of the healthiest looking injuries I’ve ever seen.

Corey Coleman3 REC, 26 YDS, 8.7 AVG, 15 LONG, 11 TGTS. Trump hasn’t even taken office yet, and the Factory of Sadness in Cleveland is looking strong. No jobs being shipped to Mexico here folks. This is 100% American-made sadness being manufactured at peak efficiency… #MAGA.


The last time I saw a Giant getting destroyed like that, Zeus was a teenager.

Ezekiel Elliott24 CAR, 107 YDS, 4.5 AVG, 15 LONG. 2 Fast, 2 Furious: An Ezekiel Elliott Story

Antonio Gates5 REC, 61 YDS, 12.2 AVG, 27 LONG, 9 TGTS. Did you know that Antonio Gates played basketball?

Jared Goff24/41, 235 YDS, 5.7 AVG, 2 INT, 54.4 RTG and 1 CAR, 2 YDS, 1 TD. In our new post-fact society, I think we can all agree on not just one, but two undeniable facts. First, Jared Goff… hasn’t looked great so far. Second, Goff would be the Jets best quarterback by a magnitude of “Joe Namath could start for the Jets right now and be an improvement”.

Melvin Gordon3 CAR, 5 YDS, 1.7 AVG, 4 LONG. “Those familiar with running back Melvin Gordon’s left hip injury, for which the Chargers running back was carted off the field in the first quarter of a 28-16 loss to the Panthers, were hopeful he avoided the sort of severe injury usually associated with such departures. “He’s okay,” one source said at halftime. A Monday exam will help determine if he’s okay enough to return this season.” [Source.] What a year. Chargers not even showing any commitment on the injury front either… if they had that, they’d be able to make history and have the first NFL player die on the field, not this fickle “long-string of injuries the entire season” type of bull cocky. Pretty sure Dean Spanos effed the Injury God’s daughter or something. But don’t worry, moving to Los Angeles will obviously fix all of this…

Robert Griffin III12/28, 104 YDS, 3.7 AVG, 1 INT, 38.4 RTG and 7 CAR, 31 YDS, 4.4 AVG, 1 TD, 7 LONG. Hunh, RG3 still not injured yet? Good for him! (I give it a few more hours…)

Todd Gurley16 CAR, 61 YDS, 3.8 AVG, 1 TD, 9 LONG and 3 REC, 22 YDS, 7.3 AVG, 12 LONG, 4 TGTS. And with this blowout loss to the Falcons, the Rams are about to announce that Jeff Fisher’s contract will be extended by another two years…

Colin Kaepernick15/26, 133 YDS, 5.1 AVG, 1 TD, 84.3 RTG and 3 CAR, 23 YDS, 7.7 AVG, 13 LONG. Chip Kelly: clearly a genius.

Robert Kelley16 CAR, 63 YDS, 3.9 AVG, 1 TD, 22 LONG and 2 REC, 25 YDS, 12.5 AVG, 14 LONG, 2 TGTS. Looks like R Kelley is pissing on the Eagles now too.

Eli Manning17/28, 193 YDS, 6.9 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 78.4 RTG and 2 CAR, -2 YDS. Eli just wanted to watch Rogue One and go to sleep. Seriously, last night’s game was atrocious and Manning killed more drives himself than a DUI checkpoint.

Brandon Marshall3 REC, 33 YDS, 20 LONG, 5 TGTS. I hate to even suggest it, but maybe Todd Bowles can’t run an offense… I’m sorry, it was stupid for me to even suggest. I apologize everyone.

LeSean McCoy12 CAR, 27 YDS, 2.3 AVG, 1 TD, 9 LONG and 6 REC, 81 YDS, 13.5 AVG, 41 LONG, 7 TGTS. LeSean McCoy > Chip Kelly.

Carson Palmer18/33, 145 YDS, 4.4 AVG, 2 TD, 2 INT, 60.8 RTG and 3 CAR, 5 YDS. Now, I’ve never played organized football, but it would seem to me that Palmer might have more success throwing the ball to his own team rather than the other one. Can anyone confirm this for me?

Dak Prescott17/37, 165 YDS, 4.5 AVG, 1 TD, 2 INT, 45.4 RTG and 1 CAR, 1 YDS. Apparently, the Dak Attack decided to make his murder of my fantasy season as slow and painful as possible.

Thomas Rawls12 CAR, 67 YDS, 5.6 AVG, 15 LONG and 1 REC, 7 YDS, 7 LONG, 6 TGTS. Seahawks grand 2016 strategy? Let’s make sure we are playing from behind at all times because that is a recipe for success.

Philip Rivers21/39, 236 YDS, 6.1 AVG, 2 TD, 3 ING, 57.2 RTG. 2016! The worst year I’ve ever been a part of. Especially as a Chargers fan!

Aaron Rodgers18/23, 246 YDS, 10.7 AVG, 3 TD, 150.8 RTG and 3 CAR, -6 YDS. When it’s cold like this, does Rodgers give his teammates butt-slaps or Eskimo kisses? We ask the real questions here at Razzball.

Ben Roethlisberger17/31, 220 YDS, 7.1 AVG, 3 INT, 37.8 RTG and 3 CAR, -2 YDS. I always knew that Big Ben deflated his balls before every game. The real question always was, did the deflatee ever have a choice?

Matt Ryan18/28, 237 YDS, 8.5 AVG, 3 TD, 126.6 RTG. Never bet against Matty Ice… I mean, unless it’s a playoff game. Or an away game*. Or a game in December*. Then, you know, bet the house. *Does not include teams that are coached by Jeff Fisher.

Trevor Siemian35/51, 334 YDS, 6.5 AVG, 1 TD, 93.1 RTG. There are limits to how much one can accomplish with a mediocre quarterback and no offensive line, and the Broncos will probably have to address that sooner or later. I hear there’s this guy named Tony Romo (a lover of terrible offensive line play!) who might be available…

Ryan Tannehill15/20, 195 YDS, 9.8 AVG, 3 TD, 1 INT, 124.0 RTG and 5 CAR, 20 YDS. Well, they went and did it everyone, the Dolphins offensive line has finally killed Ryan Tannehill. Sorry about that Florida. Join us Chargers fans in drinking a lot and rooting against other people, just like this past election cycle!

Carson Wentz32/46, 314 YDS, 6.8 AVG, 1 TD, 1 INT, 86.7 RTG and 2 CAR, 5 YDS, 2.5 AVG, 3 LONG. Well, the slow-motion plane crash that is the Philadelphia Eagles continues unabated. I feel like battery prices are only going to go up to match demand…

Russell Wilson22/39, 240 YDS, 6.2 AVG, 1 TD, 5 INT, 43.7 RTG and 4 CAR, 19 YDS, 4.8 AVG, 8 LONG. We’ve secretly replaced the Seattle Seahawks with the San Francisco 49ers, let’s see if anyone notices…

Jameis Winston16/26, 184 YDS, 7.1 AVG, 82.9 RTG and 5 CAR, 16 YDS, 3.2 AVG, 14 LONG. I guess a ball getting away from Winston is much better than Winston getting away with assaulting someone with his balls. Silver linings everyone.

 

Final Thought

Hey Vikings… you want to know who else had one eye? Odin. He did alright guys.

    The most savage Rotoworld write-up I have ever seen.

    Rams fired coach Jeff Fisher.

    In a cruel, ironic twist for the NFL’s pre-eminent loser, the firing comes three days before he was set to pass Dan Reeves for the most coaching losses in league history. Fisher is so inept he can’t even claim the record that’s been his destiny for over a decade. The firing is perhaps the most justified of the modern era. Fisher has had five years to turn around a laughingstock franchise, but instead made it an even bigger joke. Fisher’s team had truly made zero progress on his first year in 2012. A wanton waster of draft picks and capital, Fisher is clueless on Sundays, fundamentally misunderstanding offense and overseeing a cavalcade of idiotic penalties. Fisher doesn’t make adjustments, aside from usually dialing up more personal fouls in the second half. Try as he may, he never came close to “cleaning up” his chronic, myriad, inexcusable mistakes. No coach, in any sport anywhere in the world, makes more excuses. Fisher has almost certainly coached his final NFL game.

      @ashtray: Honestly, who’d be surprised if Rams signed him back tomorrow… I wouldn’t.

      Fisher is a dirty coach, and he’s been just good enough to be below the mediocrity line. Incredible he’s been around this long. Shows you how much owners are willing to hire minority coaches when they hire retread trash like this over and over again.

    Howdy man! Hope you had a great weekend!

    Good news I earned myself a week 1 bye week.

    The bad: Melvin Gordon who’s been mister reliable got taken out & On top of that I’ll be facing the team who has Leveon bell, Stafford, aaron Rodgers, muscle hamster, Crowell gets the bills & theyve been getting torched by RBs & his WR Adams has been solid along with his TE Walker too lol he also has falcons D who went off.

    I’ll take it as a silver lining that I’m just glad I didn’t face him week 1 he had almost 200 points & he still has Mike Wallace tonight even if Wallace gets 0 he still has the most points for week 15 even more than some guys on the consolation ladder lol

    Here’s my team

    QB ; matt Ryan (week 15 hosting the niners in ATL)

    RB1; David Johnson (week 15 home vs saints)

    RB2: up in the air but maybe Jeremy hill? (Week 15 home vs Steelers )

    WR1: Hopkins (week 15 home vs jags)
    WR2: doug Baldwin TNF (week 15 home vs Rams)
    WR3: Dez Bryant SNF (week 15 home vs Bucs )

    TE: Witten week 15 vs Bucs

    Kicker week 15 at Chicago is my Crosby

    Defense I’ve been streaming here right now I have Raiders D who will be at SD who will face Chargers most likely w/o Gordon

    Available D’s:

    Panthers D (@ Washington)

    Dolphins D (@ jets)

    Bucs D (@ dallas)

    Cowboys D (vs Bucs)

    Ravens D (home vs Eagles)

    Steelers D (@ cincy)

    Giants D vs a banged up Stafford home at met life stadium

    Also at flex I had moncrief there but he’s Day to day thinking of benching moncrief for either

    Kenneth farrow (home vs raiders)

    Emmanuel sanders (home vs patriots)

    Sammy Watkins (home vs browns)

    Or look to add any of these as maybe a spark to play to flex?

    Ryan Matthews (week 15 at Baltimore)

    Ty Montgomery (week 15 at Chicago)

    Terrence Williams (week 15 vs Bucs)

    Before last night’s game I was considering starting Dak Prescott at QB over matt Ryan but Dak has been inconsistent lately & this Bucs D has been playing well recently

    The last home game in Big D for Dak was week 12 cs redskins he threw for 195 & 1 TD too & also one rushing TD = 24 fantasy points

    Week before that was week 11 and that was another home game vs Baltimore & Dak that game threw for 301; & 3 passing TDs. Would it be beneficial that atleast that game is home for Dak?

    Lol lots of tough calls usually it would be easy but Gordon threw a wrench in my lineup

    Thanks bud!

      @Bobbys world: Sup man, hope your’s was well too!

      And yeah, I’m assuming about 40% of those points were from Bell alone. And I agree, that Raiders defense is a great choice heading into the week. I do also like the Ravens as well. Going to be tough, but I’m find holding. I agree on the Ryan choice there over Dak. Keep an eye on my rankings on Thursday, but I might want to go Watkins there. Seems like an interesting matchup.

    Picked up the packers d 3 weeks ago thinking I was clever targeting Matt Barkley and the bears next week…. now I’m not so sure (he looks kind of good)

    Packers d @ Chicago
    Or

    Raiders d vs San Diego
    Jets vs Matt Moore Dolphins (scared about nyj they look inept)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Whattodo: I’m kinda leaning Raiders there… and yeah, Jets are okay, but really hard to trust them right now. Double check my rankings when the time comes, but I’m comfortable with the Packers right now.

  7. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, well that was quick. Got smoked in my 12 team league to end that season. On to my 10 teamer…

    Do I let Big Ben burn me, again, in Cincy this week!? My only waiver options are Dak v TB, Tyrod v. Browns or Dalton v Pitt.

    Than for defense, rank these, Texans v LA, NYG v Det, Falcons v SF

    Thanks as always!

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: forgot to mention I have Raven D but I assume you prefer the options above?

      • Jay

        @Nick: Yeah, I do.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Man, that sucks. Hmm tough decisions all around on the 10-teamer. I’d think Tyrod is the flavor pick of week, but I could still make the case for Big Ben. Leaning Tyrod right now.

      And then for defense, I think you have to go the Texans (against Jax, right?)

  8. Brian says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    I can start 3 of these rbs this week Lamar, Hill, Demarco , Gilesse I feel like I need to squeeze Gilesse in here somewhere I believe the Bills may run all over Cleveland and there will be plenty for carries for Gilesse to have. I am also torn between a few WR where I need 2 options are Tate, Snead and M. Lee my feeling is maybe Lee Houston does a good job of covering the top receiving option and Lee has been fairly consistent your thoughts on both situations ? TY

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brian: Well, I think you’re right, but I’d still probably start the first three. And I’m going with Tate and Snead still right now. Double check my rankings on Thursday, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it stayed the same for me.

  9. Chad Bowling says:
    (link)

    Have Brees and Eli at QB….Kaep or Palmer on the wire…who do I roll with this week?

    My RBs are Ingram, Ware, Hill, Rawls, AP. I start 2 and a Flex. Drop one for Bilal?
    (Also have loaded WR where I could drop one: OBJ, Evans, Watkins, Jeffery, Crabtree)

    Non-PPR

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chad Bowling: Leaning Brees at the moment. And I’d hold, I think you have a good mix there and don’t need to rely on AP coming back.

      • Chad Bowling says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thx
        Can you rank these DEF for week 15?
        ATL vs SF
        KC vs TEN
        NE @ DEN

          • Chad Bowling says:
            (link)

            @Jay: Just saw BUF vs CLE is available. Them over NE? I dont think I could drop NE tho. They look strong

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Chad Bowling: Yeah, I really dig NE against Denver. I don’t think they’re going to give anything to Semian, but man, that Bills matchup is close.

  10. Not Your Average Joe says:
    (link)

    I’m facing a juggernaut of a team in my semis. If you could take a crack at some or all of these it could mean a big difference! It’s standard scoring.

    1. Mariota @KC , Brees @ARI? Or Tyrod against CLE?

    2. Pick 3: Crowder vs. CAR, Rishard @KC, Hill vs TEN, Gabriel vs SF (sans Julio), Watkins vs. CLE

    3. Reed or Ladarius at TE?

    4. ATL vs SF or MIA @ NYJ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Not Your Average Joe: Right now, digging Brees, but Tyrod is close. And probably Crowder, Gabriel, and Watkins along with Reed and ATL.

    Thanks bro need to win this week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @James: Yeah, I like your team a lot, but it’s easy to see how it could get in trouble. I’d probably stash Peterson over Forsett because I don’t really see a scenario where you start him over Ajayi, Ware, or Murray. I would love to add Gabriel, but I just don’t see a spot, which is actually a good thing when you think about it.

      • James says:

                    (link)

                    @Jay: Yeah me too, currently I’m going to throw Gabriel in over Pryor because RG3 is buns…I just think with him back there Pryor will just be like this dudes sucks bones of glass etc.

  12. Not Good at Fantasy Football, in fact, last year was my first year says:
    (link)

    Standard. Semi-finals.

    QB: Bortles (HOU), Kaep (ATL), Rivers (OAK)? Dalton or Smith on the wire.

    WR: Crowder (CAR), Fitzgerald (NOR), Gabriel (SFO)?

    Flex: Gillslee (CLE), Powell (MIA) , or the #2 WR option above?

    14 team PPR.
    RB mccoy/ware/c.west/booker/sims (this group looked a lot better weeks ago, KC’s o-line, booker not good lately)
    WR inman/t.will (SD)/diggs/boyd/a.brown/parker
    TE eifert/bennett
    1. drop c.west or booker for farrow (my 10/100 probably doesn’t get it done though)

    12 team PPR dynasty
    RB mathews/forte/mckinnon/ingram/ivory
    WR britt/d-jax/edelman/jordy/treadwell/boyd/decker
    TE ertz
    IR allen/woodhead (only 2 spots)
    2.r.anderson or boyd long term?

    3. in general for PPR, this order for ROS? r.anderson/boyd/lafell?

    4. in PPR (start 2 RB, 3 WR, no flex)
    RB l.bell/d-will (PIT)/howard/kelley/d.lewis/sims
    WR watkins/hilton/hopkins/t.will (SD)/cobb/lafell
    drop 2 players (and which 2 if so) to grab and/which of r.anderson/meredith/gabriel? has to be 2 dropped if any since sims in RES slot.

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: in #1 i got farrow dropping west. now get to hope ware doesn’t go out while melgor comes back soon.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: I’d do West for Farrow an d see what happens. On 2, probably Boyd. 3. Yeah, I think that order is good. 4. I’d probably want Anderson over LaFell, but Meredith is a good second choice. Very close. Or actually, now that I read it, I think just drop LaFell for Sims. I like him in PPR right now.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay:
        1. spent the last $10 and grabbed farrow over west (very odd nobody else bid anything here, 2 weeks left seemed silly to spend less to save money for what exactly, no backup with upside isn’t owned, even those with little)
        2. ok, so boyd’s better for dynasty than ROS anderson right now. makes sense with petty’s crazy anderson targets as far as this year.
        4. i already have sims and lafell, to add either of meredith/r.anderson i’d have to drop 2 players (whether to activate sims from RES or drop him), lafell sounds like he’d be one of them.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: Yeah, I think that’s a good buy on Farrow, and I agree, surprised no one even tried. Yeah, I don’t think you should drop two off your roster there. And LaFell is the first one to go when Sims gets back I think.

            @Jay: lafell only around for insurance at this point, cobb only there in case jordy or adams get hurt really. sims deep insurance, as 2 out of bell/kelley/howard like have to get hurt to play him, and even then d-will (PIT) would have to be STILL not ready.

    Thanks Jay!

    Please pick 2
    Stafford-Carr-Alex Smith-Tyrod Taylor

    Finger crossed AJ Green plays this week! What do you think?

    Which Defense? Green bay or Minnesota?

    Thanks!

      @Chris: MIN over GB easily, even with matchup helping GB out.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Chris: Yeah, I’d say Vikings and Tyrod and Stafford right now. Fingers crossed on AJ as well.

    standard dynasty, start 2 no flex
    RB: melgor/zeke/booker/morris/mckinnon, looks like mckinnon plays this week. if i can’t get farrow dropping a useless WR position, what order of these should i grab: c.michael/forsett (might take booker’s job?)/d-wash DET?

    2nd round of playoffs looking for some help! My team is listed below and we do 1 point per rec after the 3rd rec. Thanks
    QB-Brees
    RB-McCoy
    RB-Gurley
    WR-A. Brown
    WR-M. Thomas
    TE-K. Rudolph
    Flex-F. Gore
    K-A. Vinatieri
    Def-Minn

    1) Should i stick with Brees or pick up (T.Taylor, C. Plamer or J. Flacco)
    2)What do i do with Gurley vs. Sea? Should i roll with M. Gilslee?
    3) Thinking Ravens Def over Minn?
    4)Rudolph or Ebron?
    5)F. Gore or go after Ty Mont or K. Farrow on the waiver?
    6) ANY other help is appreciate

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @bluety: Stick on Brees, 2, I’d say start Gurley for now, 3, eh, I like the Vikings there, 4, right now, Ebron, but on that one especially, they’re close for me right now, so double check rankings tomorrow. On 5, stick on Gore. And on 6, sure thing! Haha.

    for some weird reason farrow still around in 20 team PPR (albeit with only 5 rush yards per point and 15 catching per point, this will likely be made closer to even in offseason).
    i have kelley/thompson/sims/hightower/blount/mckinnon with AP in IR slot. team is WAS based so dumping thompson is probably out the window. but hold hightower or farrow here? can only start 2 max (and do every week). likely this question is answered for me in a few hours by somebody else, but if he’s out there this late (no waivers at all in this league) he could be later too. i didn’t even check myself till a few hours ago, figuring he’d be grabbed in the middle of sunday’s game.

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I’d dump Hightower for Farrow. No real scenario where Hightower either cracks your lineup or hurts you from someone else’s

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Steve Stevenson: uh, since ingram is playing hurt right now there certainly is a situation where it’s possible he plays, last year i won in no small part from ingram being hurt mid week and i probably had a 20 minute window in which to add hightower before somebody else did. he wasn’t kept by me at start of year, nor could i trade him to the NO owner, who added him early in year then dropped later.

        as far farrow not being owned yet it’s only since 4 teams are left in playoffs, but even then it speaks to many teams not attempting to improve themselves for next year. wow, just checked again, still not owned, i would’ve laid 70-30 he’d be gone by now.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Yeah, I think in a deep league like that he’s a must own. That being said, I like Hightower a lot more. I think you hold him there.

  18. Scott steelers says:
    (link)

    Need some help! Brady, Rivers or Kappy. Then Ware or Farrow. THEN d Adam’s, tyreek hill, or DeSean Jackson. Pick one of each area. Or 2 WRS if you’d rather play them over the ware or farrow option. Half per.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott steelers: I’d go Rivers right there, but Brady might overtake. It’s a tough decision. I’d probably do Ware and Adams.

  19. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Half-ppr, opponent lost Gordon and is looking at starting Farrow and McKinnon this week. I have a roster spot I can play with. Use it on Hillman or Mathews to block in case news re: his RBs changes, grab a flier WR (my top 4 are Dez Jordy Sammy Alshon, so wouldn’t start barring injury) like JJ Nelson or Thielen, or pick up a wk 16 DST (SD v Cle)?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d say Mathews there. I think he’s more useful.

    Would you pick Fitzgerald up over any of these guys:

    Bryant
    Baldwin
    Moncrief
    Pryor
    Sanders

    Standard scoring 12 team

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @ashtray: No, not at the moment. Fitz usually has rough second-halves, so I’m sticking with your current roster.

    Would you rather roster:

    Dion Lewis, Gabriel, or Sterling Shepard?

    no real needs right now…

    • ryanoger says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger:

      Those dudes above are more thinking for ROS obviously and into next year…or…I could grab Ty Mont to take him off the market with my opponent missing Forte this week with not a lot of FA RBs to be had in our league?

      thanks again man

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: Lewis. Actually, the order you listed them is good.

  22. Brian says:
    (link)

    Am I crazy for starting Tyrod over Luck ? Also iI am a little concerned that Farrow will lose a lot of work to Hillman I also have JJ Nelson so my plan is to wait and see if Chargers say something in regards to their rb situation also want to see if Floyd gets benched before swapping these 2 if Floyd is benched Nelson should see more targets I suppose. The other option would be to flex Gillisee but I already have McCoy and Tyrod I feel like thats too much exposure to start Gillisse so basically its between Farrow and Nelson. You follow the Chargers pretty close how do you see this backfield shaping. TY

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brian: I wouldn’t say crazy. Tyrod has a pretty good matchup incoming. I still haven’t started rankings, but I’m curious where Luck ends up. And yeah, I don’t think Farrow will have that many more carries than Hillman, I’m sure they’ll mix it up. But for now, I’ll say Farrow, but if I look at the flex tonight, I could see Nelson overtaking. It’s a fair question.

  23. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, .5ppr questions

    Cam or Rivers at Qb this week or grab Flacco off the wire? Leaning Cam

    ALso need a wr3 and flex from Ryan Matthews, Robby Anderson, Shepard, Meridith, Ginn….leaning the first two

    • Nightpandas says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: or grab Hillman or Dw Wash off wire

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: Leaning Rivers, but it’s not a favorable matchup, I think he throws this game, a lot. Could be dangerous, but it does make the ceiling a bit higher. Double check my rankings tomorrow. Right now, I’m leaning the first two as well, and I think hold. I hate Ginn so much, but he might come in handy with Cam liking him right now.

  24. Wide Right says:
    (link)

    So with Forte out, I am forced to start Martin and Coleman, not bad, but not great, in my ppr league.
    I have just one waiver left for the season.
    Farrow is available.
    However, I also have Fiedorowicz, who may have a concussion. Gotta go tight end, right?
    And in what order, Gresham, Allan, Clay, Henry, Pitta, Doyle are only ones really available.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wide Right: Yeah, agreed on that sentiment. I think you have to go TE there. And I think I’d probably go Allen, Pitta, and then Doyle there.

  25. ryanoger says:

    .5 ppr

    How would you rank these three for next year?

    Woodhead, Gio Bernard, and Dion Lewis?

      @ryanoger: I’d say Woodhead, Lewis, Gio there.

    Howdy!

    Big week 15 matchup it’s semi final week!!

    I was gunning for the Ravens D this week but my opponent added them, thing is he doesn’t even need Ravens D he now has falcons D who he’s starting then on his bench there’s pats & Ravens D lol!

    Now since my opponent is hogging 3 defenses do I roll with my raiders D who are at SD & most likely W/o Gordon.

    Or- drop Raiders D for either one of these:

    – Bucs D (at dallas but Bucs D has been playing great)

    – panthers D (at Washington they’ve been up /down but played well in week 14)

    – Giants D (hosting banged up Stafford & lions)

    – dolphins D (@ jets)

    Jets D (hosting fins with matt Moore)

    – or Steelers D (@ cincy)

    I don’t own zeke Elliot but I do have Morris- drop Morris for any of these available ones?

    At RB:
    Ryan Matthews, forsett, ty Montgomery, Charles sims, Ronnie hillman, d Angelo Williams (opponent has bell)

    At WR:
    Michael Floyd , ted ginn jr, ty Montgomery, sharpe, Chris hogan, John brown, Robby Anderson

    Hold onto my Dak Prescott or drop for either flacco, siemien, RG3, or Mariota or hold there?

    Thanks again!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: Hey Bobby! Yeah, he clearly did that to ef over the league a bit, all good. I’m leaning Raiders right now, but I think the Dolphins might be the best there. I’d hold on Morris unless you need a starter. If so, for Mathews. I’d hold on Dak for now.

      • Bobby says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        I don’t need a starter per say but I did lose Melvin G. But I still have farrow & Jeremy hill to play around with on the roster.

        On the flip when I hold onto Alf Morris when Gordon is officially out I can move him to IR spot then add a player without having to drop anyone.

        Lol, yeah that’s exactly what he did, but you’re right it’s all good!

        Another owner did the same thing by hogging D’s another owner has Seattle which should be fine by itself but nope also has Chiefs & lions D lol , take away the starters & thats 4 d’s that could be on the wire craziness!

        Thanks as always for your spectacular insight!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Bobby: Yeah, it’s a good strat, but rarely does someone have three spots for defenses. I’d rather just let the cards fall as they may and add a little depth.

    Hey bud, so Carr was dropped to waivers in my 10 teamer! I have Taylor with Big Ben on bench…thinking I should drop by FAAB (25 left. Other top 3 in league have 45, 0 & 29). Thoughts? As of now Im going up against Eli this week so I’m hoping he doesn’t try to grab Carr (he has 29 left so he has me beat if he wants him). What to do?

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I just realized the guy I’m going up against had Carr (no idea what he is thinking going with Eli for first round of playoffs over Carr). So now it’s just the guy with 45$ to beat & he has Wilson & Rivers (don’t think he will go for Carr)….so save some FAAB & grab Carr for a $1?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Nick: Yeah, I think you can budget it like that. Maybe 2 just in case.

    What it is, Jay!

    I made it somehow to the semis in my 10 team IDP league and I’m going up against a beastly squad this weekend that makes me want to vomit in terror.

    Check it, they got-

    QB: Big Ben
    RB: Le’Veon Bell
    RB: Shady
    WR: OBJ
    WR: Demariyus
    TE: Greg Olson
    FLEX: Latavius Murray

    Stupid, right?!

    I’m currently thinking about rolling with-

    QB: Ty-God
    RB: Tevin Coleman
    RB: Spencer Ware
    WR: Amari Cooper
    WR: Sammy Watkins
    TE: Tyler Eifert
    FLEX: Tyrell Williams

    BENCH-

    Cam Newton
    Todd Gurley
    Michael Thomas
    Alshon Jeffrey
    Taylor Gabriel

    I need home runs basically…

    Should I stick with my current line-up or do I need to go outside the box with this one?

    Always appreciate the help, my dude!

    Mahalo.

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Woodrow the Impaler: Aloha!

      Yeah, that’s a pretty scary team, but I could see it being beaten. McCoy and DT are question marks production-wise, and lucky for ya, Bell had his huge game last week. Hard to pinpoint if he can put up big numbers again, but to that degree? I like the mix you have, but I might try and convince myself that Cam could maybe do something big against Washington. I’m doing rankings tonight, so be sure to ask me again tomorrow.

    With Arizona releasing Floyd would you play JJ Nelson over Golden Tate and Wlly Snead ? I like the match up that JJ has better for sure I don’t trust Tate and Willy is very up and down . TY

    Hello jay, waiver Q here who’s a current injured player you’d add to stash on IR slot in hopes to potentially keep this said player?
    It’s half ppr

    Here are players I’m eyeing Keenan Allen, woodhead, Gio Bernard, Jamaal Charles, Abdullah, eric decker, Kevin White, Vincent Jackson

    And although he’s not injured thoughts of stashing on my bench the suspended Martavis Bryant?

    Buenos noches amigo!

    • Timm says:

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Timm: Hey Timm! I’d like to go Keenen in the half PPR, for sure. but Charles is an interesting case. How long can you keep? If it’s long-term or no penalty, I think Allen is the guy.

  34. Jack says:
    (link)

    Hey man. Nice write-up.
    1. Which WR this week – Crabtree, Inman, or Boyd?
    2. Of the remaining 2 from question 1, would you start one of them over Kelley at flex?
    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

    Jay, thanks for all you do. I need to start 2 of these 3 assuming Julio plays in half PPR:

    Ware vs Ten
    Sanders vs NE

    What say you?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

    – Rawls vs LA
    – Ware vs TENN
    – Cooks at ARZ
    – JJ Nelson vs NO
    – Farrow vs OAK

    Thanks again for all the solid advice bud!!
