I thought trading away Percy Harvin was going to solve all your problems? Well, I guess trading away one of your best weapons doesn’t exactly solve terrible play-calling, subpar offensive line play, and very un-special teams play. So, despite the faulty narrative that I’m sure will be thrown about, here we are, CONDITION CRIMSON RED, also the color of Tom Coughlin’s face. As was alluded to early yesterday, imagining an outcome such as this was a fools errand, but it wouldn’t have been the craziest thing to think that the Rams could pull off the upset. And while it took wild and boner inducing events (which is also my pet name for your mom) to take place, the impossible was suddenly possible, and the 2013 Super Bowl champions are now 3-3. Said events (we’ll call them “Cialis”) included a hilarious punt return where Tavon Austin lined up on the left side of the field for the return, and acted like he was about to catch the ball, which drew in the entire Seahawks special teams unit, cameraman in full tow, and then this happened…

Later in the game, with Seattle needing a big stop for another chance at the win, Tre Mason broke through for a first down on 3rd-and-1, icing the game right then and there, until he was stripped. The ball bounced forward, was covered by a Rams lineman, only to pop out again and be seemingly recovered by Seattle. Replays did show Richard Sherman on top of the ball for a moment, but “technically” there wasn’t enough to overturn the officials call which had rewarded the possession to the Rams. That’s two straight losses for Seattle, a team which is now sitting at .500 on the season. Look on the bright side Seahawks fans. After this third loss, the band wagon crowd should be displeased enough to go away. Not as effective as a meteor, but it’ll have to do.

 

Falcons – 7, Ravens – 29

Joe Flacco – 16/25, 258 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT and 1 CAR, 4 YDS. It’s amazing that a quarterback can have two elite touchdowns and two elite interceptions in the same game. I’ll call it: 2 Elite, 2 Furious. For those who want more Flacco eliteness and more Flacco furiosity.

Justin Forsett – 23 CAR, 95 YDS. Yes Ravens, I guess you can have this gift for releasing Ray Rice.

Torrey Smith – 3 REC, 81 YDS, 1 TD. Torrey Smith sighting! It was certainly the game all you Smith owners were waiting for. Only took about, err, almost two months. I respect the strategy.

Matt Ryan – 29/44, 228 YDS, 1 TD. You’d have to think that Matty Ice is essentially a home/away streaming option at this point. At least until they can figure out how to keep him from thawing out away from an environmentally-controlled dome. You could see that joke develop from space.

Steven Jackson – 8 CAR, 22 YDS. “THIS STEVEN JACKSON, I CALL HIM THE WALKING DEAD, BECAUSE HE PLAYS ON SUNDAYS AND IS ON BORROWED TIME.” – Jon Gruden

Roddy White – 9 REC, 100 YDS, 1 TD. Hey, you’re not Julio Jones.

Julio Jones – 5 REC, 56 YDS. Hey, you’re not Julio Jones either. Is Julio Jones dead? Or just the Falcons offense?

 

Titans – 17, Washington Football Team – 19

Kirk Cousins – 10/16, 139 YDS, 1 INT. This game had as much gross Cousins moments as an Alabama family reunion, which led to Colt McCoy (11/12, 128 YDS, 1 TD) being thrown into the Washington quarterback controversy. It’s now a triple-headed threat! Can’t wait to see how this develops.

Alfred Morris – 18 CAR, 54 YDS. Dissapointing? Yes. All his fault? I’d like to blame Daniel Snyder somehow, but Morris did tweak his ankle in the first-quarter. He departed for a brief amount of time, unlike the entire season where he’s departed for a large amount of time.

Pierre Garçon – 5 REC, 87 YDS, 1 TD. “Garçon” is French for “I only show up when you start DeSean Jackson (3 REC, 49 YDS) and sit me”.

Bobby Sankey – 16 CAR, 56 YDS. When I see Bishop Sankey, I think of Sanka Coffee. Then I stop thinking, because I’ve never had Sanka Coffee.

Kendall Wright – 6 REC, 68 YDS, 1 TD. Stop it, I already dropped you and moved on. You can’t just show up like this and play with my delicate heart.

 

Seahawks – 26, Rams – 28

Austin Davis – 18/21, 152 YDS, 2 TD and 2 CAR, -2 YDS. Davis went 18-for-21 Seattle? UHHHHHHHHH.

Tre Mason – 18 CAR, 85 YDS, 1 TD. It’s now safe to add Mason to your roster, as he clearly showed he’s the most talented back on the team right now. Wait, that seems vaguely familiar, almost like I’m having some déjà vu

Russell Wilson – 23/36, 313 YDS, 2 TD and 7 CAR, 106 YDS, 1 TD. Apparently, Russell Wilson was very happy Percy Harvin was traded.

Doug Baldwin – 7 REC, 123 YDS, 1 TD. Apparently, Baldwin was very happy Percy Harvin was traded.

Marshawn Lynch – 18 CAR, 53 YDS and 2 REC, 18 YDS. And what say you Marshawn Lynch?

lynchsad

 

Browns – 6, Jaguars – 24

Blake Bortles – 17/31, 159 YDS, 1 TD, 3 INT. Blake Bortles badly blasted by Browns blitz OR Blake Bortles botched bullet burgled by Buster. Pick your “say it three times fast” poisen. BUT CHOOSE WISELY.

Denard Robinson – 22 CAR, 127 YDS, 1 TD. I wasn’t really sold on Storm Johnson (6 CAR, 16 YDS, 1 TD), but just hopeful. Because weather puns are a lot easier to do here. How can I create a pun on Denard? Denard it, you can’t.

Isiah Crowell – 7 CAR, 18 YDS and 1 REC, 5 YDS. It’s not like Ben Tate (16 CAR, 36 YDS and 1 REC, -2 YDS) lit it up, but I’m still waiting for Crowell to do what everyone keeps telling me, and that’s be fantasy relevant. I just don’t see it right now unless Ben Tate gets injured or kidnapped.

Andrew Hawkins – 5 REC, 112 YDS. I start you last week, and bench you this week. Yeah, seems… about… right.

 

Bengals – 0, Colts – 27

Andrew Luck – 27/42, 344 YDS, 2 TD and 4 CAR, 5 YDS. Hey guys, did you hear Andrew Luck still uses a flip phone? He’s going to get a sweet endorsement deal for the Razor.

Trent Richardson – 14 CAR, 77 YDS and 4 REC, 41 YDS. Clearly this was only because the Bengals were in their “first game of the playoffs” mode. So lets not mention it ever again.

T.Y. Hilton – 7 REC, 107 YDS. From what I’ve read and watched, T.Y. stands for, like, 18 different things, none of which are his real name. I am now making one more submission. Thank You.

Giovani Bernard – 7 CAR, 17 YDS and 2 REC, -1 YDS. Bernard essentially represented the entire Bengals offense with his performance. Like some kind of hobo street art exhibition while having a stroke and pooping all over the place. Interesting, now that I think of it, this could also describe the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well.

Jeremy Hill – 4 CAR, 15 YDS. And these were garbage-time carries, if you wanted to feel worse about owning him.

 

Vikings – 16, Bills – 17

Kyle Orton – 31/43, 283 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. You’d have to assume that all the alcohol in a 15-mile radius of Ralph Wilson Stadium all cried out in terror for what was about to happen.

C.J. Spiller – 1 CAR, 53 YDS and 1 REC, 3 YD. Looks like we’ve been put out of our misery. Spiller suffered a broken collarbone, when he was trip-tackled after a 53 yard run, and will be out for the rest of the season. Fred Jackson (3 CAR, 12 YDS and 3 REC, 16 YDS) also suffered a groin injury, and will be out at least until Week 10. It looks like Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon (13 CAR, 51 YDS) will be the primary backs moving forward, which begs the question, can E.J. Manuel be a running back? If not, do any one of you want to play running back for the Bills next Sunday?

Sammy Watkins – 9 REC, 122 YDS, 2 TD. SWEET. BABY. JESUS.

Jerick McKinnon – 19 CAR, 103 YDS. Looks like Asiata has been down-grated.

 

Dolphins – 27, Bears – 14

Lamar Miller – 18 CAR, 61 YDS, 1 TD and 2 REC, 22 YDS. No fumbles? Who are you, and what did you do with the real Lamar Miller?

Jay Cutler – 21/34, 190 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 2 CAR, 3 YDS.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-9526-1388768357-33

Matt Forte – 12 CAR, 49 YDS, 1 TD and 6 REC, 60 YDS, 1 TD.

Brandon Marshall – 6 REC, 48 YDS.

Alshon Jeffrey – 2 REC, 9 YDS.

Saints – 23, Lions – 24

Matthew Stafford – 27/40, 299 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT. I think we have enough of a sample size to know that Matthew Stafford kinda sucks without Calvin Johnson. That, and common sense.

Reggie Bush – 4 CAR, 10 YDS and 5 REC, 22 YDS. Bush is killing me. Actively and literally killing me. Someone call the cops.

Golden Tate – 10 REC, 154 YDS, 1 TD. I think we have enough of a sample size to know that Golden Tate is kinda awesome without Calvin Johnson. That, and common sense.

Drew Brees – 28/45, 342 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 1 CAR, 13 YDS. Drew Brees and the Saints have only one more victory than the Geno Smith and the Jets. I think you can draw your own conclusions from that statement.

Kenny Stills – 5 REC, 103 YDS, 1 TD. There’s certainly potential here, but Brees spreads the ball pretty evenly to anyone not named Jimmy Graham (who was only targeted twice, but did not have any setbacks with his shoulder injury, so there’s that). I don’t think he’s a pick-up this week due to inconsistency, but I’d keep an eye on him.

 

Panthers – 17, Packers – 38

Eddie Lacy – 12 CAR, 63 YDS, 1 TD and 3 REC, 10 YDS. I’m not sure it’s possible to tackle Eddie Lacy with fewer than three defenders. Nor is it easy to keep him on your fantasy team with fewer than three glasses of bourbon.

Jordy Nelson – 4 REC, 80 YDS, 1 TD. Do you think Rodgers and Nelson have bunk beds together? I can totally see that.

Cam Newton – 17/31, 205 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 7 CAR, 41 YDS. Cam Newton is to Superman as Vincent Chase is to Aquaman

Greg Olsen – 8 REC, 105 YDS. Olsen Watch, 2014: Only 42 REC, 478 YDS, and 4 TD to go!

 

Chiefs – 23, Chargers – 20

Alex Smith – 19/28, 221 YDS, 1 TD and 6 CAR, 29 YDS. You can’t stop Alex Smith. You can only hope to contain him.

Jamaal Charles – 22 CAR, 95 YDS and 2 REC, 12 YDS. Still looks a bit limited from his torn ACL, high-ankle sprain, leg cramp, tiny scratch. whatever it was that happened to his ankle a month ago. With Knile Davis (10 CAR, 25 YDS and 1 REC, 11 YDS) getting a larger portion of the carries, this actually might help more than hurt here, keeping Charles effective so that Andy Reid can misuse him that much more.

Dwayne Bowe – 5 REC, 84 YDS. More like Dwayne Blowe, amiright?

Philip Rivers – 17/31, 205 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT. *Lights candle in front of a framed picture of Rivers.*

Keenan Allen – 6 REC, 58 YDS. I recently gave a bold prediction for Keenan Allen as a guest-blurbist (is that a thing?) over at FantasyPros. Here’s me quorting me:

Danny Amendola will not land on the IR for at least two more weeks. Wait. Actually, that might be too bold. So how about Keenan Allen will have top 10 wide receiver value for the rest of the season? There are a lot of reasons to not believe this, and those reasons are named Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd, and Eddie Royal. Also, if I did the math right, he’s had a total of 3 receptions and 4 yards for the season thus far. But believe it or not, Allen still leads the teams in targets (42), and has been bogged down by an under-reported quad injury. As his health improves, you’ll see him move away from being a decoy/blocker and be the receiver he was last season. And I think that starts this week against the Chiefs.”

For what it’s worth, this game wasn’t big, scoring wise, but he looked more mobile and was a bigger part of the offense. It only will get better from here.

 

Cardinals – 24, Raiders – 13

Carson Palmer – 22/31, 253 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT. Continued to look healthy after missing most of the season with nerve damage. Or he could still have nerve damage, and playing against the Raiders is masking the injury.

Andre Ellington – 24 CAR, 88 YDS and 6 REC, 72 YDS. Apparently was nursing a rib injury in the second quarter, which gave Stepfan Taylor (12 CAR, 40 YDS, 2 REC, 19 YDS, 1 TD) some vulture time. While Bruce Arians has stressed a “balanced” approach with the offense, Ellington appears to more immune to these lies than, say, Larry Fitzgerald (4 REC, 21 YDS).

Maurice Jones-Drew – 3 CAR, 6 YDS. I would call Jones-Drew’s production sh*t, but that wouldn’t be fair. I can actually use sh*t as fertilizer.

 

Giants – 21, Cowboys – 31

Tony Romo – 17/23, 279 YDS, 3 TD, 1 INT and 2 CAR, 5 YDS. Tony Romo is a great quarterback this year. Excuse me a moment… I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

DeMarco Murray – 28 CAR, 128 YDS, 1 TD and 1 REC, 4 YDS. The “death to DeMarco” offensive strategy seems to be working quite well thus far.

Dez Bryant – 9 REC, 151 YDS. I’m dressing up as Dez Bryant for Halloween, because he’s a monster.

Gavin Escobar – 3 REC, 65 YDS, 2 TD. I’m not quite sure what to make of this. I mean, Jason Witten (2 REC, 27 YDS) seems to be fading a bit here, but Escobar is bascially all touchdowns at this point. Then again, Vernon Davis lives off of that type of role. With a lot of depth at the position, fantasy wise, I still think he remains someone to keep an eye on, or a bye-week add, but that’s it for now.

Eli Manning – 21/33, 248 YDS, 3 TD and 1 CAR, 11 YDS. Even though Eli looked like he was lost at a department store and was looking for his mom for much of the game, it was a pretty good effort overall. And that’s probably just how he always looks. The loss of Victor Cruz hurts a lot, but Odell Beckham Jr. (4 REC, 34 YDS, 2 TD and 1 CAR, 13 YDS) has certainly emerged as a weapon for him. But can he do the salsa?

 

49ers – 17, Broncos – 42

Peyton Manning – 22/26, 318 YDS, 4 TD and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. What better way to celebrate Peyton Manning’s touchdown record than with a sub-par Papa John’s Pizza?

Ronnie Hillman – 14 CAR, 74 YDS, 2 TD and 4 REC, 29 YDS. You know, I wasn’t high on Montee Ball at all this preseason, but if you were to tell me that Hillman would outproduce his entire season in two games, I would have fainted right then and there.

Demaryius Thomas – 8 REC, 171 YDS, 2 TD. Guess he’s trying to make up for the first month and a half where he completely disappeared. Good hustle!

Wes Welker – 3 REC, 50 YDS, 1 TD. Of course Welker has a nose for the white powder in the endzone.

Stevie Johnson – 5 REC, 79 YDS, 1 TD. I guess God is happier with Johnson in San Francisco than he was in Buffalo.

Vernon Davis – 2 REC, 21 YDS. “THIS VERNON DAVIS, I CALL HIM EBOLA BECAUSE HE CAN’T CATCH IT AIRBORNE.” – Jon Gruden

    Picking up Tre Mason or Denard Robinson in a PPR? Or can I pick up both and kick Reggie Bush to the curb?

      • Random Dude says:

        @TJ: I’d go with Tre Mason. It’s probably highly unlikely that both of them would make it through a whole round of waivers anyway.

  2. Zandy says:
    (link)

    What’s the impact of the Tre Mason last play fumble? Do we need to worry about him a little?

    Did Zac Stacy give GoldenTate a black eye and that’s why he’s been locked up and hidden away?

    Let’s get Denarded! With the WR eligibility on yahoo it makes him extra intriguing. Tho I fear one hit wonder status because there’s no way that oline finally became decent. Also his success requires Jax to be in the game which is easier said than done. Agree or disagree?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Yeah, ball control issues are still there, but if he can limit those mistakes, he’ll be okay. Agreed on Denard. He’s interesting, but I’m not going crazy there because he’s on a team that isn’t good at all.

    Hey Jay, I’m down by 1.4 points & I have Andre Johnson (opponent has finished the week)…if he does not get there, I will be severely surprised and distraught as I traded my Wallace for some Cruz & A Johnson, can’t have them both turn up duds for FY14! Here’s to hoping to go to 5-2 with a commanding tie for first (advantage: ME, with the most points in the league!)

    “I’m dressing up as Dez Bryant for Halloween, because he’s a monster.”

    I can read Razzball articles all day for this high-brow humor. Brilliant shit.

    So I got lucky and my placing of Hillman in my lineup made up for not putting Vereen. Though this begs the question, time to sell uber high on Hillman or ride the high? I mean, if the Broncos make leads like that every week, I feel like I could put a dead cat in at RB and he’d put up a TD and 50 yards. My science is still iffy on this, but I think Hillman is a bit better than a dead cat, though not so much more that I think of him as an every week starter yet. Your thoughts on Hillman short term/long term this year?

    Side note: Eff me for not listening on Tre. I even had my app open to pick him up and I got the shakes on dropping someone I may not need. I have Sankey in my full PPR league, do you like Tre moving forward or Sankey? I’m mixed on them but it’s looking like Tre is the one on fire and doesn’t wanna stop drop and roll any time soon.

      @Slob on my Cobb: don’t feel bad, some other writers even around here weren’t upping mason much this past week.

      @Slob on my Cobb: We are non-brow discriminators. I would probably sell high, I don’t think the ceiling is there, and as much as I don’t like Ball, I’m not a fan of Hillman either.

      In PPR, Sankey would get the slight edge for me. But it’s very close.

    where does he get such wonderful bear gifs? seriously who set up the trampoline bear, that was awesome! Has nobody tried fooling a team on special teams like that before, since it seems too easy to have actually worked? How hard would it be for ONE PLAYER ON SEA TO YELL OUT BALL IS GOING IN X DIRECTION (the punter would be the easiest one to do this)! Having never played football i just assumed they did very basic things such as this all the time. Could be sort of a problem in loud stadiums but the no show in STL (other than successful cop PR) isn’t one of them.

    Wow, so benching Reed for the Goose Egg Graham could cause me to lose if JJ Watt pulls some magic trick like he did last week. Anyway, I made sure to grab Denard this morning. Probably should have grabbed Mason, but I like having Shoelaces on my team. I also like that he has dual eligibility on Yahoo. Makes for a good BYE week fill in. Think he maintains the job and stays fantasy relevant?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Yeah, that was my fault. In my head, I saw all 30 snaps being in the redzone with 30 touchdowns. I just get very stubborn in giving the edge to stud guys, probably something I should reexamine going forward. He can, but it’s really tough to say with that team.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Jay: man, I was right there with you. Figured he’d get at least one solid red zone look, maybe a couple/few catches for 20-30 yards. A decent 8-10 point day. The goose egg really sucked. The extra 7.9 from Reed would have probably secured my victory, but now I have to hope JJ doesn’t do much of anything tonight to stay in first place.

        I just read that Denard is going to be the feature back from here on out. I know being the #1 RB in Jacksonville is like being the tallest player on the midget basketball team, but his dual eligibility and skill set could be beneficial. He’s just a bench player for me right now anyway. Hope passing on Mason for this guy was a good bet (he’s my 7th RB anyway behind Forte, Tate, Oliver, Vereen, Bell, Bradshaw).

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: Yeah, it was a huge risk. Whether it was justified or not, still a sucky feeling.

          Yeah, I think he’s useful, certainly.

      • Random Dude says:
        (link)

        @Jay: The last time I remember Graham playing in a limited capacity he played only in the red zone and scored two touchdowns…

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Jay: yeah, I distinctly remember that, which is part of the reason I made that move. Just hope JJ can quit with the huge weeks as a defensive player. A 20 point lead sure would have been a little nicer than a 12 point one…

  11. Clint says:

    Probably a stupid question but in my ppr league where we start 1 RB and have a flex spot, I currently have Le’Veon, Lamar, and Montee. I’m dealing Dalton for Alf this week. Should I hang onto Montee to see what happens when he returns or dump him for some depth somewhere for the playoff run (was thinking of snatching RG3 now). Here’s my roster:

    QB: A-Rod
    RB: Le’Veon
    WR: Megatron
    WR: Cobb
    RB/WR/TE: Lamar
    QB/RB/WR/TE: Romo
    Bench: Romo, Alf, Montee, G. Tate, Garcon, R. Randle

    I’m 5-1 and a lock for the playoffs so I’m starting to check out those matchups to see where I’m weakest. Best guys on waivers are Wright, Torrey, A-Rob, Baldin, T. Mason, Tannehill, and RG3.

    Thanks as always Jay!

    Hey Jay, what do I do at TE with Witten in a 10team non-ppr? He’s kinda killing me every week…

    How about I try Forsett/Reed for my Ingram/Sanu (I tried for Forsett & Deceker but have not heard back)…if he rejects that, do you try Sanu & Tre Mason? Is that giving up too much? He also has Olsen who I could try to package instead of Reed…

      @Exactly: PPR?

      I dumped Matthews this week in 2 leagues, because I’m not convinced he’s right for a while. I could be wrong, but I’ve moved on and need his roster spot. That being said, I think it goes, Oliver, Bradshaw, Hillman, Tate.

      I use Bradshaw EVERYWHERE, but I also only play in PPR leagues.

      • Exactly says:
        (link)

        @CL: .33 ppr, so might as well be standard

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Exactly: Bradshaw, Tate, Oliver, Hillman, but they are all pretty close.

      • Exactly says:
        (link)

        @Jay: if you were looking to trade one to improve your WR core: Jordy, V-Jax, Randle…who would you look to move first?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Exactly: I’d try to sell high on Hillman.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Exactly: Or if you are asking about WR’s, I would try to move V-Jax there. He’s too inconsistent.

    hey Jay. If u needed RB help would u trade away Mike Floyd to get L Miller?

      @BillyBob424: Yeah, I like that trade for you.

    Drop Khiry Robinson or Matt Asiata for Tre Mason?

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @Filkarri: YES, either one, NOW

      • Filkarri says:
        (link)

        @Nick: Well, technically I’m just making a waiver claim I guess. Was mostly wondering who we think is more worthless there, heh.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Nick: Well there both rather useless, as Ingram is back (although not great, but I don’t think he will be outplayed by Khiry) and McKinnon has clearly taken the reins from Asiata and has not looked back (any play Asiata is in, its a guranteed lose of yards!). So yea, put your waiver in, dumping Asiata first, then drop Khiry if someone else busting into the spotlight is available in your league..I just got Mason and I know the Stacy owner wants him…

        • Filkarri says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Good call. Both are on the chopping block this week for me.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Filkarri: I would drop Asiata for him, but you can do either.

    I wholeheartedly approve of your bears gifs. I get it. I do. Well done.

    I demand to know where Jordan Cameron was yesterday. He effed me in DraftKings hard.

    By the way, too bad we can’t consistently fill the DK Framily Plan league.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @CL: Haha, thanks! Jordan Cameron was doing very Jordan Cameron things… I expected better. I’m still holding for a bit, but it’s not looking good.

      Yeah, both of us should start bothering Sky with that, he is our daily expert.

  17. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Are you buying Devonta getting the promotion in Atlanta? I think it may be a week or two early but hard to see why they wouldnt hand him primary back duties. The 5 dump off catches this week makes me think he is starting to see some more love. Sjax is not good.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Yeah, not surprising. He’s got upside and can explode, but I still think they like spreading it out to SJax and Jaquizz, even though they are both trashy.

  18. Scooter G says:

    Which of these players should be numbered 1-5 on my waiver priority this week? (Waiver over resets each week based on teams record) D Robinson, T Mason, G Escobar, A Dixon, W Welker, D Freeman

    Also I have one open roster spot but is there anyone else on my roster I should be prepared to drop for one of these players? 14 team standard league with 1 pt per 10 kr/pr yards

    QB M Ryan
    RB Forte
    RB Murray
    WR D Thomas
    WR R White
    TE Gates
    OP Cutler
    K C Parker
    D/ST Bills
    BN Ellington, Stacy, Storm, J Bell, CJ2k, J Locker, RGIII, Donell, D Hester, C Patterson, Colts D/ST

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Scooter G: Mason, Robinson, Welker, Freeman, Dixon, Escobar.

  19. Wacha Wacha says:

    Hey Jay which sides do you like better in these trades in 12 team standard?
    Gates and J Bell for J Graham
    M Ryan and J Bell for A Luck
    I appreciate the advice!

  20. CL says:

    Dump Matthews for Ray Rice, or crazy talk?

      @CL: Dats crazy yo.

  21. ThE sHiT says:

    12 team non ppr league. Would you give up Jimmy Graham for Brandon Marshall/Jordan Cameron? My other wrs are Roddy, Crabtree, Decker. Looking for some depth and getting something for Jimmy while he still hasnt totally busted this year.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ThE sHiT: I would, but I’ll admit, I don’t like what I’ve seen out of Marshall thus far.

      • ThE sHiT says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yeah nothing to get excited about. Its more of a panic on Graham. Do you think Graham goes back to his old self in the next week or two? Im battling for a playoff spot and need to stop the bleeding.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @ThE sHiT: I’d like to think he does. One things for sure, the Saints and Brees need him, so whether if he’s ready or not, they are going to throw him the ball.

  22. Make it wayne says:

    Hey jay , thanks for reccomending tre Mason , I added him yesterday by beating the waiver rush because I’m sure he would’ve been a top add.

    Now looking over the rest of my roster for moves to make for the waiver Rush.

    1.) keep or drop Storm Johnson? I’m leaning the latter.
    – here are available players at RB & WR I could add for depth;
    Denard robinson, benny Cunningham, bryce brown, anthony Dixon, Robert Turbin

    & for wrs: kenny stills, Andrew Hawkins, Dwayne bowe, jermaine kearse, or brandon Lloyd.

    – if Markus Wheaton is invincible again tonight I may drop him too, if that’s the case I’d prob drop storm for one of the above rb’s & if wheaton does nothing tonight then dropping him for one of the above wrs.

    2.) keep or drop Zach Ertz? Or hold & play the matchups; my other TE is jordan Reed & his bye is week 10 .

    My D/st are the Texans , week 8 @ Tennesee then week 9 vs philly. Keep or drop for any of these?

    Vikings D (week 8 @ TB & week 9 vs washington)

    Dolphins D (week 8 @ Jacksonville & week 9 vs chargers)

    Colts D (week 8 @ pitt & , & week 9 @ Giants)

    Cowboys D (week 8 vs Redskins & week 9 vs cardinals)

    Bucs D (week 8 vs Vikings & week 9 @ Cleveland)

    Thanks man & keep up the great work

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Make it wayne: Yeah, Storm is an okay drop. I like Denard there the best. I still like Wheaton over those of the WR’s. And you can drop Ertz. I like the Texans enough, but the Colts D is intriguing there. Tough to go against JJ Watt though.

  23. Poo Poo Platter says:
    (link)

    Lost Fjax and really need a flex now for next week (PPR). Who’s the best waiver add for me from – Tre Mason, Denard Robinson, Allen Robinson, Cecil Shorts, Doug Baldwin or anyone else you recommend (Bryce Brown will probably be claimed before me).

    Thanks!

        @Jay: that you are thoughtful teddy bear

  25. Tyler says:

    Vereen too much to give up for Kelce & Gore? Half ppr and my TE is Witten

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: I would hold.

  26. FrankGrimes says:
    (link)

    my backs are Bell Hill Stacy and Martin.
    hating it right now. I have not made a FAAB move yet this year
    so is now the time to snatch up mason and/or Bryce?
    we can only hold 4 RBs (2QB 14 team auction league)

  27. Brian says:
    (link)

    Should I trade Michael Floyd and Mason for AJ Greene ? I feel like I shoud but the injury is certainly a risk reward would be huge though. My W/R are DEZ, Floyd, Cooks, Welker and Gordon my record should prolly be 6-1 after tonight ? I have Luck, Demarco, Ellington and Gronk as well.

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Brian: It’s a good buy low, sure.

    Someone dropped Jerick Mckinnon for some reason…I’m first on waivers…so Jerick from the purple people eaters or Tre Mason?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dan: McK, but it’s damn close.

      • Dan says:
        (link)

        @Jay: That’s what I thought, Mckinnon just looks really impressive. Like he could break every run for a big gain lol.

  30. A Sleeper says:
    (link)

    I am in searching for a sleeping WR2 or WR3 on the rise. Thinking folks like Cordarelle, Roddy, Percy…who would you target in a trade right now?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @A Sleeper: Roddy and maybe Percy if he’s cheap.

  31. BEATS by Ray says:
    (link)

    Got offered ODB Jr. for K. Benjamin. Im kind of intrigued with ODB so I might take the deal, other WRs I have are Antonio Brown, Marshall, Andre Holmes and Cooks. Who do you like ROS out of that deal?
    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @BEATS by Ray: Eh, I still like Benjamin a bit more right now. But your WR corps is pretty stacked.

  32. Scott says:
    (link)

    I have too many WRs! Antonio Brown, Percy Harvin, OBJ, Mike Evans, Jordan Matthews (1 t or two?), Brian Quick. Which one can I do without?

    • BEATS by Ray says:
      (link)

      @Scott: Mike Evans and Jordan Matthews (1 t or two?)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Scott: Probably Evans and Matthews.

  33. Random Dude says:

    Thoughts on Lamar Miller and Matt Ryan for Aaron Rodgers?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Random Dude: Depending on who replacings Miller, it’s an okay trade.

      • Random Dude says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Forsett/Tre Mason/Michael Floyd/Keenan Allen (maybe someday)

        • Jay

    Hey Jay. Sorry to bother you again. Just one more question for you. Who do you prefer long term out of Cordarrelle Patterson or Odell Beckham?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby: Beckham. I’m not sure if Zimmer likes Patterson.

    what’s kelvin benjamins upside in a keeper league, or are we seeing it? it’s pretty hard to improve on what he’s already doing, but does he have that start talent someday? i feel like he’s not very fast… yet hes a wr1 on his team and cam loves throwing to him so that’s worth it’s weight.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @whattodo: Strong WR2 maybe? I think that elevates him, certainly.

  36. Jordan Reed says:

    Am I a good trade piece for Percy Harvin?

      @Jordan Reed: I think it’s fair at this point.

      • Jordan Reed says:

        @Jay:

        Still have Kelce and Z. Ertz so would you pull that trade if you needed a WR3?
