Well folks, I promised NFC East derp yesterday afternoon, but the derp levels that were given are almost too much to bear, even a day later. So much derp in fact, that I’ll get to tell my grandchildren about how I was there for the (second, or maybe third, could be technically the fourth I guess) epoch of Brandon Weeden. In what was a 6-3 football game essentially (without a special teams touchdown) in the first 40 minutes of regulation, it wasn’t quite football, but wasn’t quite baseball either. What it was exactly, I can’t quite describe. If I had to give some sort of concrete answer, I would probably call it a nuclear weapons test. I will say this, as was alluded to earlier with one Brandon Weeden, the epoch began immediately after Tony Romo suffered a fractured clavicle bone (on the play shown above). Along with the news that Dez Bryant’s timetable for a return is murky now at best, this game still probably ended up more demoralizing for the Eagles. True, even with an existential outlook, you could say that the Cowboys lost the first two games they actually won (SO EFFING DEEP), but the Eagles look almost too innovative to be playing football at this point. If Romo (and by extension, Bryant) are out for an extended period of time (likely), and you combine that with the Giants doing very Giants like things, the Eagles have basically ceded the division to Washington. HAHAHAH. But don’t worry, Chip Kelly is still a genius. Totally.

Here’s what else I saw in Week 2 (with bonus Week 2 knee-jerk reactions to the knee-jerk reactions I had in Week 1. WOOOO!)…

New to Daily Fantasy Football? Try out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. (Played on FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)

Ameer Abdullah – 6 CAR, 9 YDS and 1 REC, 9 YDS. You need to slow down Ameer, there’s only so much I can handle.

Nelson Agholor – 3 REC, 31 YDS. Get your batteries here Philly! D’s, C’s, even AA’s for the kids! Batteries, get your batteries here! Prime tossing material here folks!

Odell Beckham Jr. – 7 REC, 146 YDS, 1 TD. The top of Beckham’s head probably was based off a helmet from a 19th century Russian aristocrat.

Joshua Bellamy – 1 REC, 48 YDS, 1 TD. Who?

Sam Bradford – 23/37, 224 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT and 2 CAR, 9 YDS, 1 FUM. Here’s schismatics on what Sam Bradford looks like when he’s about to throw. Honestly, I’m beginning to think that double amputees have stronger and more accurate arms than Bradford…

Tom Brady – 38/59, 466 YDS, 3 TD and 3 CAR, -4 YDS, 1 FUM. This Tom Brady performance was completely legitimate and the Patriots won in a completely fair, and well-earned manner. Haha, just kidding. They probably cheated.

Drew Brees – 24/38, 255 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. So, let’s have a discussion… what exactly is wrong with Drew Brees? Lack of pass-catchers? Coaching? Bad protection? OR, is he just entering his late Favre years?

Antonio Brown – 9 REC, 195 YDS, 1 TD. Antonio Brown: Not Mike Wallace.

Amari Cooper – 7 REC, 109 YDS, 1 TD. Finally showed something, almost as if just being in the city of Oakland and the overwhelming number of bails bondsman increases a person’s ability to run and escape would be authorities tacklers.

Kirk Cousins – 23/27, 203 YDS, 1 TD. I’ll give credit where credit is due, Cousins and Washington in general were pretty solid. The third quarter was an interesting affair though, almost adding to the current total of meltdowns that prove my theory that this team is like an alcoholic dad on Christmas Eve. The first half of the night looks like a Rockwell painting. Then the second half of the night starts with pissing of the pants and ends with the falling into a tree with a car.

cutlerbeingcutler

Jay Cutler – 8/9, 120 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 3 CAR, 24 YDS. The Jimmy Clausen era (Re)Begins (Again)! Sort of. Cutler injured his hamstring on the play shown above (in what is probably the most Jay Cutler play that ever existed) and had to leave the game. He’s listed as doubtful for Week 3, which means the Bears fans might finally get what they wished for. And with Clausen, well, you know the saying…

Mike Evans – 0 REC, 0 YDS, 3 TGTS. Can we bring back the Giraffe so that Mike Evans can actually get a ball thrown to him?

Larry Fitzgerald – 8 REC, 112, 3 TD. Amazingly enough, this was the first time Fitzgerald has had three receiving touchdowns in a game. So I have to ask, who the f*ck killed Michael Floyd? Is he alive? Should we send search parties?

Joe Flacco – 32/45, 384 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 2 CAR, 2 YDS. You might think this was good game from the stat line, but nope, this is what Flacco is. He floats around the line of above average until that one moment, in this case, an open Steve Smith Sr. in the end zone to seal the win, and then completely whiffs. Every time he does something like this, a Flaccoelitemeter explodes.

Nick Foles – 17/32, 150 YDS, 1 TD. Yeah, these Rams look way more familiar to me.

Melvin Gordon – 16 CAR, 88 YDS and 1 REC, 10 YDS. Melvin Gordon looking not bad! Seriously, buy low now. He had three rushes of over 20 yards this game, the first time that’s happened for the Chargers since LaDainian Tomlinson was in the backfield.

Jimmy Graham – 1 REC, 11 YDS. You know, I just feel like Seattle needs a receiver who played basketball in their receiving core, just to give that offense the extra weapon it needs to win these close games. Hey, didn’t Jimmy Graham play some sort of other sport with a round ball? Eh, nevermind, I’m sure it was it tennis…

Rob Gronkowski – 7 REC, 113 YDS, 1 TD. I see the Bills employed the “Let’s not cover Gronk” defense that worked so well for the Steelers last week. An effective plan, for sure.

Jeremy Hill – 10 CAR, 39 YDS, 2 FUM and 1 REC, 2 YDS. I’m not quite sure what Hill was benched for throughout the game. It could have either been the two fumbles or a knee injury in the first half. It’s a clear timeshare with Giovani Bernard (20 CAR, 123 YDS and 3 REC, 16 YDS), and has sort of been for a while, but Hill is the better back. Unless you’re a big pizza guy. Then you probably like watching Giovani and eating their delivery too.

DeAndre Hopkins – 5 REC, 53 YDS. Ryan Mallett’s passing is an abomination. That’s all.

juliodoingjulio

Julio Jones – 13 REC, 135 YDS. Honestly, I would have rather watched Jones and ODB play a game of horse than this football game…

James Jones – 1 REC, 29 YDS, 1 TD. So let me get this straight… he was released by the Giants, but is now once again a budding star for another team? Yeah, that sounds about right.

Matt Jones – 19 CAR, 123 YDS, 2 TD and 3 REC, 23 YDS. I’m not sure if Matt Jones is better than Alfred Morris (18 CAR, 59 YDS and 2 REC, 13 YDS), but he’s definitely faster. Probably better too. He’s been Razzball approved for a while now folks, if you don’t have him now, he’s worth your high waiver claim.

Colin Kaepernick – 33/46, 335 YDS, 2 TD and 9 CAR, 51 YDS, 1 FUM. Kap had a solid game, but the 49ers are going to do this a lot more than what they did against the Vikings last Monday, and that’s look like a west coast version of the Cleveland Browns. The start-up company of sadness, if you will.

Eddie Lacy – 3 CAR, 9 YDS. “Lacy Carted off the Field” sounds like it would air on late-night Cinemax. He was removed on the opening drive from an apparent ankle injury. The x-rays came back negative, but don’t be surprised if this is something that lingers for now. Without a firm time table, I don’t quite think Starks should demand your undivided attention, but as a depth piece or in shallower leagues, you have to care.

Dion Lewis – 7 CAR, 40 YDS, 1 TD and 6 REC, 98 YDS. This pretty much happened because Rex Ryan’s defensive playbook is a sketchbook with “blitz” underlined and some doodles of ham.

Marshawn Lynch – 15 CAR, 41 YDS and 3 REC, 21 YDS. I wouldn’t worry. The Packers entire defensive plan was “stop Beastmode” and they ended up basically forgetting about the entire rest of the team.

Jimmy Manziel – 8/15, 172 YDS, 2 TD and 3 CAR, 1 YDS. If Maziel handed the ball off like this in USC, he’d be a Heisman winner. But who knew? All it took for Manziel to win a game was to play at home… against the Titans… and the Titans having food poisoning. I think this is a recipe built for future success!

Rishard Matthews – 6 REC, 115 YDS. Out of all the Matthews that could have had a monster Sunday, it happens to the one that no person has ever heard of…

Marcus Mariota – 21/37, 257 YDS, 2 TD and 3 CAR, 19 YDS, 2 FUM. No worries here, it’s only natural that while in Cleveland, Mariota would get the VIP tour of how Cleveland designs and manufactures it’s sadness.

Dexter McCluster – 10 CAR, 98 YDS and 4 REC, 26 YDS. Single-handily trolled Daily Fantasy. Well done sir.

Darren McFadden – 10 CAR, 31 YDS and 2 REC, 21 YDS. Darren McFadden: shockingly uninjured.

DeMarco Murray – 13 CAR, 2 YDS, 5 REC, 53 YDS. This was a physics experiment. It’s called: when a totally stoppable force meets a non-existent object.

newtongymnastics

Cam Newton – 18/37, 195 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 10 CAR, 76 YDS, 1 TD. I give it a 10/10 on the landing, would write about it again.

apfumble

Adrian Peterson – 29 CAR, 134 YDS, 1 FUM and 2 REC, 58 YDS. You really need to beat it into Peterson when it comes to the importance of ball security. Maybe one day he’ll switch his thinking on it.

Allen Robinson – 6 REC, 155 YDS, 2 TD. Blake Bortles’ Booming Bombs!

Denard Robinson – 1 CAR, 9 YDS. I blame Jacksonville’s use of Denard Robinson on their “We don’t typically expect plays to matter in any game we are in, so let’s just do random things” playbook. It’s a wonder they actually know who Allen Robinson is.

CPX58byVAAQRfKI

Tony Romo – 18/27, 195 YDS and 1 CAR, 12 YDS, 1 FUM. As stated in the lede, Romo went down yesterday afternoon with a fractured clavicle. We’ll know more today when the CT scan takes place, but it’s looking like a 8-10 week timetable for return, essentially ending his season in Fantasy Football. But on a positive note, we get to dust this gem off…

Eddie Royal – 7 REC, 41 YDS. Hey, you’re not Alson…

C.J. Spiller – 3 CAR, 7 YDS and 1 REC, 19 YDS. I keep trying to deny this Spiller stat line, but it keeps forcing its way into my eyeballs. It just grabs you, like it has claws or something.

Ryan Tannehill – 30/44, 359 YDS, 2 TD and 3 CAR, 17 YDS. I figured Tannehill would be okay, but Lamar Miller (10 CAR, 14 YDS and 5 REC, 28 YDS) was clearly affected by an apparently ankle injury, which Miller is downplaying. I don’t know about you guys, but my brain is going to start filtering out nonsensical phrases like “Lamar Miller is underrated this year” pretty soon… Damien Williams is your starter in Week 3 if Miller misses any time, but we’ll have to see how this develops.

Jacob Tamme – 4 REC, 77 YDS. The Giants defense used their religious rights and refused to believe in Jacob Tamme.

rexball

Tyrod Taylor – 23/30, 242 YDS, 3 TD, 3 INT and 5 CAR, 43 YDS. And just like that (and seemingly every single year), the Bills early season has already died a little bit inside. The Tyrod Taylor Experiment is not having the best of times so far, but he’s not exactly a bowl of suck, something the Bills are used to at the quarterback position.

Shane Vereen – 6 CAR, 19 YDS and 8 REC, 76 YDS. THIS SHANE VEREEN, I CALL EM BILL COSBY BECAUSE HE MADE THINGS HAPPEN RUNNING UP THE “A” GAP!

Brandon Weeden – 7/7, 73 YDS, 1 TD and 3 CAR, 7 YDS. Brandon Weeden has thrown more touchdowns to a wide receiver than Alex Smith has in over a year.

Andre Williams – 6 CAR, 43 YDS. The Giants (Rashad Jennings – 9 CAR, 12 YDS and 2 REC, 12 YDS) and Falcons (Tevin Coleman – 9 CAR, 32 YDS, 1 TD, Devonta Freeman – 12 CAR, 25 YDS, 1 TD and 4 REC, 34 YDS) just need to stop running the ball. Please. Just stop.

Jameis Winston – 14/21, 207 YDS, 1 TD and 6 CAR, 23 YDS, 1 TD. The Saints were so bad, they made Jameis Winston look like post-2004 Daunte Culpepper.

Terrance Williams – 4 REC, 84 YDS, 1 TD. The Cowboys top receiver… Seems strange how this came about. Strange and mysterious…

Russell Wilson – 19/30, 206 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and 10 CAR, 78 YDS. Gonna need a lot more of that #RecoveryWater and #nanobubbles. #0-blessed #GoHawks.

Jason Witten – 7 REC, 56 YDS. I have dreams that I’m falling but Jason Witten is always there to catch me. Is that weird?

T.J. Yeldon – 25 CAR, 70 YDS and 3 REC, 13 YDS. Blake Bortles Bombs Befuddle Bottlenoses!

        @Jay: I’m thinking of offering Allen / Dunbar / Ladarius Green for Murray / Martavis Bryant. Which side is better? Should I offer more?

        I also have Moncrief, Charles Johnson, Woodhead, and David Johnson that I could offer.

        • Jay

    You hate to much on the Patriots. Instead you should bask in the fantasy goodness that they provide for you. Too much hate and anger makes the world a dull place. Enjoy what the Gods Brady, Gronk, Belichick and Edelman provide for you. I know it must be tough being a Chargers fan but direct your anger elsewhere and enjoy the show. Haha. That is my ode to the fantasy friendly New England Patriots. Enjoy…….

      Jay says:

  6. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    1) Wow. So I play Evans and Cooks, and leave A-Rob on the bench. Oh, then Romo breaks his vag…er…clavicle. Now I need another QB (have Matty Ice in a 2 QB league). Here are my options:

    Winston
    Tyrod
    Dalton
    Bortles
    Flaccid

    *the 2nd QB slot is a full Q/W/R/T flex, just makes sense to play a QB there most often.

    3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving/100 yards rushing/250 yards passing – 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving/150 yards rushing/335 yards passing

    2) What are your thoughts on Travis Benjamin?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Sounds rough. I’d go with Tyrod there and stream accordingly if you can. And yeah, it’s essentially a 2 QB league. I like Benjamin to an extent, probably a match-up play, bench piece. The Browns are just too all over the place to rely on week in and week out.

  7. G says:

  8. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay, 10 team FAAB, how much is Matt Jones worth? I have AP/Demarco/Randle at RB1/2/flex & Sankey/Tre Mason on bench. I paid $8 for Tre but looks like he might be cuttable for Jones? Or drop my extra TE, L .Green (have M. Bennett)?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’d say 15 bucks in a vacuum, but I think someone is going to overshoot that by a mile. I’d put in a logical bid, but feel okay if you end up keeping Mason.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Do you like Travis Benjamin, Crabtree or Hankerson over Roddy White, Charles Johnson or Wheaton?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Nick: Maybe Hankerson over Wheaton, but I like Wheaton over the long-haul.

  9. Scott says:

    I don’t understand Chip’s O-line philosophy. Always let 1 Defender through on Run plays? Hmm, maybe it just hasn’t caught on yet.

      @Scott: It’s so innovative, we just can’t even understand it.

  10. Allan says:
    (link)

    Jay,
    If Lacy misses time should I pick up Matt Jones or James Starks? Jones seems like the higher upside but he is still in a time share with Morris. Starks on the other hand will definitely play if Lacy is out. Thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Allan: It’s a fair point, but I just don’t Stark enough to pass on the upside of Jones. But I think Starks is a nice consolation pick up for those that lose out on Jones this week, if that makes sense.

    (link)

    Well, I finished off week 2 with a 2-0 record (both weeks I was the high score) and I get Le’Veon back next week! Sorry, had to throw that in there before I asked my question!

    On a completely unrelated note, thoughts on david johnson? I own him in both of my leagues and would love it if he ended up getting the starting gig at some point. I also own matt jones in one league as well. Am I going to have an embarrassment of riches at RB at some point this year?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bryce Krispie Treats: Awesome news! He’s okay for now, and is better than Chris Johnson. I kind of see him as an Alfred Blue to start, but could make some noise if given an opportunity. A good bench piece. And yes, owning Jones is a great thing to have right now.

  14. Conjoined Tight Ends says:

    I am down 13 points in a PPR tonight and must choose between Moncrief and Andre Johnson. Who should I start to avoid going 0-2?

  15. Funny Name says:
    (link)

    Lost Dez and now Romo, and I’m not even a cowboys fan. Would you trade Tevin Colman or Woodhead for Eli? 1/2 ppr with 2 wrs, 2rbs and a flex. I’m going to try and push Mason but doubt he’ll bite. Stewart and Abdullah are my other backs with Calvin, B. Colman and M. Bryant(drafted before suapension )as my wrs. Not much on the waivers for QB cause it’s a 14 team league and a couple ppl have backups. This yr is not going well…

    • Funny Name says:
      (link)

      @Funny Name: Flacco, Dalton and Winston are best available if you think I should hold if he doesn’t want Mason.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Funny Name: Yeah, I would hold. I know it’s tough, but I’d stream until something emerges out of that group.

      • Funny Name says:

    What are your thoughts on Andre Johnson? I am thinking of trading A. Morris and K. Allen for him. Is that trade better than Morris, Allen, and Ivory for D. Thomas? My other RBs are peterson, Lacy, and Foster so these trades dont really hurt me.

    (link)

    Amazing writing skill man!! Done great with RB in all but 1 of my leagues. But WR seems really scarce on waivers. Do you see any deep deep deep WR prospect/sleeper (could turn into something 5/6 weeks later)? Thanks!

    • RotoLance

      RotoLance says:
      (link)

      @Impending doom: Brandon LaFell does not seem to be nearing a return but he could be interesting later. Breshad Perriman, similar circumstances but more obvious and more likely to be snatched up quickly. You could put in some trade offers to Mike Evans owners. Razzball readers hopefully too savvy to accept a low ball offer though. Charles Johnson is probably about to be dropped everywhere but could rebound, probably won’t ever be a difference maker though but he’s worth keeping an eye on. Bridgewater only passed 18 times this week, so of course his receivers aren’t putting up numbers.

    12 team ppr

    QB Big Ben
    WR Julio, Megatron
    Rbs Abdullah, Sankey (gurley, m.jones on bench)
    TE Bennett
    Flex e.sanders, garçon

    Should I trade Megatron and Bennett for Gronk?

      @James: No, I’d hold here. Megatron will get his.

    Offered Alshon Jeffery and Victor Cruz for Marcus Mariota. I have to make this trade, right?

    PPR

    QB: Newton, Tannehill, Mariota
    RB: Stewart, Latavius Murray, Woodhead, Foster
    WR: Dez, Allen Robinson, Stevie Johnson, Antonio Brown
    TE: Jordan Cameron, Jordan Reed

    My only hesitation would be having so many injured players on my bench.

      @STL: Yeah, you have to make this trade. To make room, I’d decide on one QB and drop a TE.

    Hey Jay,
    1- Well it was not a good idea to bench Peyton for Rivers…agree to plug Manning back into it and start from there?

    2-Allen Robinson or Garcon? I own Garcon but someone dropped Robinson after his dismal first week. I have 80 Dollars left, how much would you pay for him? Around 11 or 12 Dollars?

    Thanks

      @Moscowitz: I’m not sure right now. I kinda like Rivers against Vikings slightly more than Manning and Detroit. Wait until the rankings, but right now, it’s Rivers with a slight edge. And for 2, yeah, that sounds about right.

    Can I possibly trust Dion Lewis??

    If he never fumbled, I bet I could trade him for a #1 WR like Calvin, but since he has twice in two games and he plays for known RB-hater Bill Belichick, he’s barely worth starting in the flex…

    Question is – top 20 RB to end the season? Or trade high now while I can?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @ujoh: The question is, can you trust Bill Belichick? Tough answer. Maybe in PPR, but I don’t see top 20 in standard leagues. And as always, depends on who you can net.

    Yo Jay. Its good to see you doing fantasy football columns again.

    I got Marshall and Moncreif tonight. Under normal circumstances I would go Marshall, but I’m not liking his matchup with vontae obviously. And word came out that Hilton will be starting tonight.
    (I’m not sure if this helps or hurts Moncreif, but I actually think it helps him as Revis may not cover him now)

    What do you think. Start Marshall or Moncreif? Thanks!

      Jay says:

      @Nugs: Thanks! I’m still going with Marshall. I want to wait and see how mobile Hilton is, but if he’s in there, Luck won’t be afraid to target him.

    PPR league. Rank em for ROS- D.Freeman, C. Beasley, M. Crabtree, R. Mathews
    Also, is there one that really stands out from this group?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Kneely: Not really. I’d go Beasley, Mathews, Crabtree, Freeman.

    Chasing 5 pts I can start either andre Johnson or hilton…..he has Decker and moncrief full ppr

      @Big League Choo: that’s rough, but you kinda had to assume you’d have this problem when you drafted both of those.

    I’m going to have the #1 waiver claim in my non-Keeper league this week, and the order resets after each week to the inverse of the standings (yeah, so in spite of me thinking I’d drafted one of my best teams ever, having the #1 waiver claim after both the first and second weeks would seem to indicate otherwise… I’m definitely in the “F**k Fantasy Football” camp currently! lol )

    I was originally all over the idea of grabbing Travis Benjamin with that claim, since I think he’ll be better than Tyler Lockett (the last WR on my bench), and he’s been great the first two weeks. However, the more I read about Matt Jones, the more I’m thinking I should grab him, even though I don’t feel like I “need” a RB (I have Lynch, Miller, Gore, Abdullah, McFadden, and Artis-Payne.) Would you agree? Claim Jones anyway? And if so, drop McFadden, or Artis-Payne? I’m looking to try and trade for Jonathan Stewart, so I’m thinking it might make sense to hold onto Artis-Payne, but maybe not?

    Thanks for all of your help, and your humorous posts!

    • DILinator says:

      @DILinator: Addendum: I had to drop Artis-Payne to activate somebody from IR. Now, in order to add Jones, I would need to drop Darrem McFadden (or Chris Johnson/Karlos Williams, if I make the trade I mention in the MNF recap thread). Is Jones worth dropping any of them, as they all seem to have pretty decent roles too? Thanks!

        @DILinator: McFadden can be dropped to make room.

      @DILinator: i think you have to go for Jones here, at the very least, you’ll block someone who wants him.

    Pick 2 of 3 PPR: Maclin vs GB, Allen Rob vs NE, and Tannehill vs Buff

    Pick 2 of 4 PPR: Gore vs Titans, Hill vs Ravens, Freeman vs Cowboys, Matt Jones vs NYG

    Could also pick one from top and 3 from RBs
