While the game as a whole was a close scoring affair that went into overtime, looking at it from the micro view, the first half was entirely forgettable. In fact, I had a hard time not throwing an unsportsmanlike penalty flag having been forced to watch those two quarters. To put it succinctly, the Cowboys did practically everything wrong and were still only down by three. The game suddenly became entertaining in the second half, until Romo went down from a sack and headed back to the locker room until late in the fourth quarter. They said he passed through the stadium bar, so I’m assuming some shots were in order. For a while, it was Brandon Weeden facing off against Colt McCoy, and I had to Google to make sure I wasn’t watching a preseason game. Suffice it to say, McCoy found a way to win in overtime, because heart, or something, and while Romo returned to a standing ovation, begging for a Romonobyl so powerful, Godzilla would awaken, we were treated to a spinning incomplete pass to end the game on downs. Not exactly the aphrodisiac I was expecting. But with a surprising win, Washington finds itself 3-5 with a chance at 8-8, and if Romo’s back takes a turn for the worst, we now know how Dallas will finish 8-8, unfortunately leaving the suspense out how they were going to do it.

 

Washington Football Team – 20, Cowboys – 17

Colt McCoy – 25/30, 299 YDS, 1 INT and 7 CAR, 16 YDS, 1 TD. In every closeup of McCoy last night, it looked like someone was trying to teach him advanced physics. It’s like he got this quarterback job through the Make-A-Wish Foundation or something.

Alfred Morris – 18 CAR, 73 YDS, 1 TD. Alfred Morris sighting… that or the Thanksgiving turkey just escaped…

DeSean Jackson – 6 REC, 136 YDS. Apparently DeSean can score on every single play, except the ones where Colt McCoy is involved.

Tony Romo – 17/28, 209 YDS, 1 TD and 1 CAR, 1 YDS. Missed two possessions after getting kneed in the back on a sack. Upon his return, he was obviously affected. To be honest, if you’ve got a bad back, and are coming off back surgery… maybe it’s a bad idea to turn it so it’s the first thing a blitzing defender will hit? Just a thought. That being said, even though there was plenty of Romo derp in this game, I’m just going to have to start believing that Romo might save his best collapse for the playoffs. Health permitting of course. (As of this posting, he’s listed as questionable, and his back will be something to watch on what is a short week.)

DeMarco Murray – 19 CAR, 141 YDS, 1 FUM and 4 REC, 80 YDS. I like it when they give it to this Murray character. They should do that more.

Jason Witten – 5 REC, 70 YDS, 1 TD. I bet you guys didn’t know Jason Witten was a two-sport athlete. He used to play pocket-pool in college.

Dez Bryant – 3 REC, 30 YDS, 1 TD. Okay, can we please stop calling him Michael Irvin? Unless he’s arranging orgies and setting up hookers to be killed, I just don’t see the similarities.

    yo in what order do you like Romo, M Ryan, RGIII ROS? Ive been starting Romo after Ryan lost anything good about his line but now with Romo getting a bit wrekt RGIII is looking like some intriguing potential off the waiver wire… The rest of the cream of the crap on the waiver wire featues names like E Manning, Fitzmagic, and Austin Davis

      @Zac Stacy’s Mom: Depends on Romo’s back, but I still like Ryan here.

    bn gordon calvin lacy ivory mason

    need a wr this week
    1)two trades i have offered — this is a one week rental (hopefully) so don’t wanna give up too much ( calvin gordon cobb in wk 12 )
    t will and mason for kelvin
    t will and mason for rueben randle

    2)thinking of offering ivory for randle or mason for welker/patterson/torrey as last resort

    either of these trades would have to be done today before the waiver period (commish can rush them thru as long as approved )

    3)would drop mason and use waiver claim #4 to get
    available WRs landry m evans hawkins hunter bowe martavis bryant adams moncrief

    4)not sure if sims would pass waivers but still could use waiver on him
    drop mason for sims and put sims on IR then get scraps at wr or still make trade ( I.e. ivory for randle) or both
    should/would have picked up sims last week but ran out of moves

      @barker: I like the Kelvin trade. I’m okay with getting Welker there, but if I were the other guy, I’d hold. I’m fine with 4, moreso than 3.

    Geeeez Jay, what a finish, I ended up winning 112.92 to 112.50 off of Murray & Witten (he finally has a heartbeat!) to now have a tie for first with just 1 person in a 10-team non-ppr!!!

    Anyways, yesterday you said I had a good shot & I did not believe you so I definitely owe it too ya…my roster looks like this & just wondering if any of the waiver fodder is worth a stash..

    QB-Rodgers (Dalton is my week 9 bye week fill vs. the Jags)
    RB- Cobb, Edelman, A. Johnson, Beckham, Sanu
    WR-Murray, R. Jennings, Ingram, McKinnon, T Mason, R Matthews
    TE-Witten
    K- Parkey
    D- Cincy stream

    Waivers include: M Bryant, Taliaferro, C. Sims, Gray, J Brown, Donnell, B Cooks (waivers), A Holmes, C Patterson & T Wright…

    Thanks in Advance Jay!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Haha, see, there’s always a chance! I think you are okay holding here. Mason for Sims might pay off down the line though.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Yesterday you said to put a claim in for B Cooks…now your saying drop T Mason for Sims….which one is it!? I would have agreed with Cooks to begin with I think…

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Nick: Yeah, that one was my bad, I didn’t even see Cooks there. Go for him.

  5. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Wutup Jay… As of now besides Murray I have no 2nd RB cause they’re all hurt or bye. They said Mathews actually might play this week so I’m hoping for that but just in case I have the #3 waiver pick. Would you grab Taliaferro If you were me off waivers?? I mean the rest of the guys, that I noticed, are all projected like 5 or less. I could probly get Jonas Gray without using a waiver.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: I’d stick with Gray this week. Mathews could return, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a post-bye decision.

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        Well they said 2 weeks ago if they lose the next 2, which they did, then they’ll push for Mathews so I hope that happens.. Also I can grab Martavis Bryant with my pick. I had him but had to drop him for Riddick last week. I got, in a 3 receiver league, Antonio Brown, Maclin, Boldin, Baldwin and James Jones. I also have to use one of them as my flex.. Dude I scored 270 points this week!! Crazy right

    Yo! Trade either my jordan Reed or ertz for Charles sims? If yes which one would you try to move for sims? Or am I not getting enough in return with getting sims for Reed or ertz?

      @Dave: I’m okay with it, but I still like Mathews there, unless you really need to win this upcoming week.

  10. Fungazi says:
    (link)

    I need to drop a TE – either Witten or Donnell. Which one? Donnell seems to have the bigger upside games, while Witten is more consistent 7-9 points per week (before last night) but does have a bye week still where I can’t use him.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Fungazi: Probably Witten.

    Rough week… but there’s always week 9
    Let’s focus on my std league since it’s the worst ha
    RB: Ingram, McKinnon, Sims, Mason, Stacy, Gray, Dixon, Devonta
    WR: AndreJohnson, Wallace, Mike Floyd, Wright, AndreHolmes
    Are you dropping any of the above for Rainey, Talia, Martvius, Moncref, Hawkins, Britt, John Brown?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Dixon for Brown.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thought process is just the most upside? Like a last years TY Hilton type?
        Also you still like stashing devonta over antone? Sjax usage was quite annoying ha

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: Yeah, I like Brown for a risk/reward type play. Devonta is okay, but I like Antone Smith for the homerun potential.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            @Jay: So youd rather stash Antone over Devonta – just want to make sure I;m understanding?

    Need a WR and have Reed as an expendable player. Looking to trade Reed for either Jackson or Watkins – which should I go for in PPR?

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Rich: i’m in exact same boat, do you also own jimmy G? i’m trying to trade for many others as well. t.will or evans just got denied. v-jax is one of the ones i’m trying.

      • Rich says:
        (link)

        @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow:

        I have Olsen. I meant DeSean Jax btw, sorry for the mixup.

        I already have Garcon so I’m leaning towards Watkins. Team I’m looking to trade with also has Cobb, but its probably asking too much for Reed.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Rich: Watkins, But that might be dreaming.

      • Rich says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I also just got a proposal my Reed/Forsett for his AJ Green/Sankey. is that better than Reed straight up for Watkins?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Rich: I’m fine with this trade as well.

        • Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
          (link)

          @Rich: yr opp ain’t gonna like that trade if green comes back soon all the way healthy and/or BAL figures out finally what their best RB is. they’re slowly getting closer.

  13. Slob on my Cobb says:
    (link)

    So that Dez catch and TD was just unfair. If he did go pulling Irvins, I’d look the other way or join him. He’s just plain awesome.

    I’m curious to see how they Boys make it to 8-8 this year, but they’ve run out of NFC East teams to lose to on the last game of the year since they went through all of them in the last 3 years. Those 2/3 games against the Iggles look like a defacto playoff series at this point.

    [/non-fantasy related post]

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Slob on my Cobb: He’s a beast, simply put. Yeah, they look like a play off team, but if Romo goes down, I don’t see how they can do anything with Weeden.

      • Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
        (link)

        @Jay: for leagues without TO pts against; weeden used to occasionally throw for a lot of yards with a MUCH worse supporting cast, he’d probably be no worse than orton if he started. romo ain’t really much better in pts per game in leagues like that.

  14. Clint says:
    (link)

    I think this game’s a symbol of why the Cowboy fans I run into around DFW aren’t exactly jumping over the moon over this start (a lesson the Seahawk fans would be wise to emulate given their team’s outlook this year). Yeah, it’s nice & they’re enjoying it but it’s essentially the same team that’s had crappy records of collapse the last few seasons so until they get through December without yet another epic collapse, I think they’re cautiously enjoying the wins so far.

    • Clint says:
      (link)

      @Clint:

      On a separate lineup note for Week 9 in my ppr league:
      1) Alf (@ Minn) or Lamar (vs SD) at flex
      2) R. Randle (vs Indy MNF) or Garcon (@ Minn) at WR2

      • Jay

        @Jay: @Clint: Morris and Randle right now.

    You like Martavis Bryant over LaFell, Edelman, Smith, Sr.?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Eh, maybe over LaFell. I still like Edelman and Smith over him right now. Could change when I do my rankings.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Jay: alright, I’m keeping my eye on him. It’s a shallow league, but I picture an Alshon-esque rise to glory. I may be overshooting things a bit there, however. I do like what LaFell has been doing with Mr. Bundchen, though…

  16. helllloe says:
    (link)

    would you send a ‘firesale’ package, including a minimum keeper kelvin benjamin ($10), to get either a minimum demeryius($10) or $24 Dez? julio jones was drafted for $55 dollars this year so dez and demeryius are stupid values.

    The ‘package’ would include: cam newton/keenan allen/terrance williams/joseph randle/montee ball, basically anyone they wanted from my team, plus a minimum Kelvin.

    i’m selling for next year. the demeryius owner needs a qb and owns demarco so cam, kelvin, and joseph + anyone he wants should be fair in my eyes.

    the dez owner has no rb’s to speak of, although montee ball is a bum, maybe i could get him to bite?

    my leaguemates are all actually pretty high on kelvin, but his drops are concerning to me. I dont know how much longer peyton will be trhowing to demeryius, and think that could limit his long term value. I feel like Dez is the best long-term target despite $24 instead of $10.

    sorry for the ramble, i guess this is why keeper leagues are fun because even when you know you cant win, you can make a deal to give someone the championship this year, and set you up big next year.

    • Jay

      @helllloe: I like that DT value there a bit more. I like Benjamin too, but that’s a clear upgrade.

  17. Ryan says:
    (link)

    Love the Colt McCoy blurb. He rivaled even Eli Manning’s ability to look completely lost out there. Looking like he’s 12 years old really gave him the edge I think. And did you know Colt’s dad was also his high school coach? I certainly do, after the 5,000th time it got mentioned.

    Trade Ellington, Grok and Ruben Randle for Calvin J., Forsett and Greg Olson this is a fair trade correct and should defenitly not be vetoed right ? I think sometimes people get upset about trades maybe beacuse they dont have the pieces in order to make this type of trade. I have some people in my league that just hate trading and dont see the point in it ? I disagree with them because I feel that trading is a huge part of this game and without I would just play daily and forget year long leagues. I am thinking of investing all of my time next year to daily leagues and quit this yeart long thing to many headaches sdealing with people.

    Hey Jay, in addition to my question above (check back to my 4:40AM post & 6:49AM follow up question)…

    Who do you start at flex in non-ppr since R Jennings does not look like he will get back on Monday…either McKinnon vs. Washington or Sanu vs. Jags…Matthews & T Mason are also on my bench but I don’t think I will start Matthews on first game back & Mason is playing against SF…

    Also, would you get Sanu in over Edelman (WR1), A Johnson (WR2) or Beckham (WR3)
    […if you don’t choose him over McKinnon at flex]

    leading 10 team non ppl with rb/wr/te flex. was just offered suspended Josh Gordon for my injured Ryan Matthews. I also have Forte, Ellington and Stacy. My receivers are Mike Wallace, Julio Jones, Doug Baldwin, and Reggie Wayne

    • Nick says:
      (link)

      @thegreater: Your RBs are rather thin, especially if Ellington goes down as Stacy is rather useless right now. I’d hold Matthews unless a nice waiver wire option is available to replace your RB bench spot…

    Would your rather have in a ppr harvin keeper rd 11in 2015 or Dwayne Allen keeper Rd 22 in 2015?

    Already have Gordon rd 12, Nelson rd 4 and crabtree rd 17

    I can keep all the players I want. Harvin would cost an 8th in 2016 Allen a 21st in 2016

    Afternoon Jay,
    16 teams .5 PPR, Roster for Reference

    QB: Palmer
    RB: L bell
    WR: Cobb
    TE: Allen
    WR/RB/TE: Bradshaw
    WR/TE: Wright
    BN: Wayne, Baldwin, Mason, Decker
    K and DST: Streaming

    I was offered Patterson for Mason. With the timeshare in STL, I am inclined to do this especially since I do not need the RB depth as I can start just one RB if need be. Thoughts?

    Also talking with Lamar Mille rlooking for a WR. Should I be willing to part with any WR not named Cobb for Miller?

    • J-MoneyIV says:
      (link)

      @J-MoneyIV: *Also talking with a Lamar Miller owner looking for a WR. Should I be willing to part with any WR not named Cobb for Lamar?

      I should proofread this better, my apologies.

      Jay says:

      @J-MoneyIV: I’m fine with that trade, sure. Baldwin or Wayne for Miller is just fine.

  38. Wilsonian says:

    Martin isn’t going anywhere it looks like, what do you think this does for Sims? I have him in my IR slot, so I would have to drop someone to get him out of there. Or I’m forced to drop him.

    0.5 PPR – 3 point bonus at 85 yards rec/100 yards rush – 6 point bonus 135 yards rec/150 yards rush

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Wilsonian: I think it becomes a timeshare as time progresses. Sims was reportedly Lovie’s pick.

    I am thinking of trading Alshon and Alfred Morris for aj green. Is that a good trade? Am I offering too little?

    My Wrs: Cobb, Nelson, Garcon, Wright

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Brett: I’d hold for now. Your RB depth is better than WR depth.

  43. Dom B says:

    sorry commented earlier to clarify and not sure if you missed it
    but aside from dropping dixon for john brown,
    are you swapping devonta for antone?
    or better to drop devonta with bye and hedge with rainey or roll dice with martavus?
    (repeating)
    RB: Ingram, McKinnon, Sims, Mason, Stacy, Gray, Dixon, Devonta
    WR: AndreJohnson, Wallace, Mike Floyd, Wright, AndreHolmes
    Waiver: Rainey, Talia, Martvius, Moncref, Hawkins, Britt, John Brown?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: Yes on both. I like Antone more there.

  45. Fred flintstone says:
    (link)

    What would the order of waiver moves be?

    Drop romo (whos my backup QB) to add Big Ben or flacco?

    I would need the QB for next week (week 10) w/ Brady’s bye.

    – Big Ben will be @ jets
    – flacco will face Titans

    Next add either one of these D’s
    – bengals (who face jags)
    – Redskins (Who are at Minnesota)
    – colts (who are at Giants)

    – lastly, drop jarius wright to add one of the following; Martavis bryant, john brown, riley Cooper, jordan matthews, kenny Britt, Stedman bailey, tavon Austin ,denard robinson, deangelo Williams, bobby Rainey, taliaferro, terrance west, alfred blue, daniel thomas or Damien williams.

    My RBs; Gio bernard, ahmad Bradshaw, ben Tate, jeremy hill, Braden oliver, tre Mason, jonas gray

    My wr’s; Demaryius thomas, Cordarrelle patterson, Kelvin benjamin, donte moncrief, odell beckham jr, & jarius wright

    Would you drop one of my TE’s? I have Ertz & jordan Reed

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Fred flintstone: Flacco and Bengals. But I don’t think either are worth a wavier.

      I’d go for Robinson there.

    Hey Jay, so I got Brandon Cooks off waivers…now the question is who do I start this week in my 10-team NON-PPR, for my 3 WR’s & flex? I have (noting who I have starting at the moment)

    WR-Edelman (WR1), A Johnson (WR2), Beckham (WR3), Cooks, Sanu
    RB-Murray (given RB1), Ingram (RB2), McKinnon (flex), Matthews, R Jennings

    I assume Sanu will all depend on Green’s health at game-day, but who would I replace if Green happens to be out? Am I setup correctly for this weeks tilt with the last place team!?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Yeah, this setup seems alright. I’s go Cooks for Beckham there.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Hey Jay, so I went over to Skys post & he advised I start Beckham over Edelman in my non-ppr league…this week I have A Johnson, Beckham & Cooks starting with Sanu & Edelman on the bench…

        I was thinking since Im facing the last place team, take the safe bet in Edelman over Beckham, but Sky thinks otherwise…what do you think about both sides?

    family league so need to try hard not to rip off my uncle (no joke)
    what’s a pretty fair deal to send the the owner of Peyton, Russell and Eli in a 1 QB league – trying to get russell
    Wright and Gray for Russell? Romo and Wright for Russell? (He stil has Quick rostered so presumably needs a WR)
    QB: Romo
    RB: Ingram, McKinnon, Sims, Mason, Stacy, Gray, Dixon, Devonta
    WR: AndreJohnson, Wallace, Mike Floyd, Wright, AndreHolmes

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: If he has three QB’s, I think it’s fair. Though, I hold on Romo.

    From above comments i dropped Mason for Sims. some Ftard dropped mathews instead of his backup D/backup QB a.smith/ or CJ?K. i’m already dropping cunningham for QB from above ^. PPR with .1 pt per return yard league. start 2 RB/ 2 WR/ 1 TE/ 1 flex (non-TE/QB)
    ingram/murray/ivory/mason/
    julio/landry/patterson/j.jones (OAK)/wright/gordon
    reed
    1. should i just drop mason for sims now, or wait till i find out what happens with mathews in 2 days (i’m 5th in waivers)?
    2. if i do get Mathews who’s my 2nd drop for Sims? Mason will be first drop assumedly. with that shit storm of bad QB’ing over at TEN is wright the drop if so? Patterson/Landry (esp landry with both punt and kick), but patterson too when healthy like this past week (but he might be hurt again) seem to now have higher floors (and certainly higher ceilings) than wright. j.jones also has a decent floor. fantasy pros still likes wright ROS, more so even than jones.

      • Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season says:
        (link)

        @Jay: i dropped mason for sims, and cunningham for ginger bastard. so drop wright before sims i guess then, for mathews.
        2. rank these for ROS m.bryant/j.jones (OAK)/wright. I could drop wright (if he’s worst) for bryant right now, and the lesser of m.bryant/j.jones would be my drop for mathews.

    variety of stuff here. assume PPR unless noted. ROS, unless noted.
    1. taliaferro or sims? (clearly this answer could change on a dime)
    2. sims has to be over sankey, right? (just since nobody on TEN seems to have any upside this season, except maybe hunter), for RB #6
    3. parkey or dawson in league with 5 pts for long kicks (over 50)
    4.who’s worst in dynasty out of mason/crowell/a.will? not PPR, in fact weird standard with less than .1 pt per scrimmage yards, so very TD heavy scoring.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Montezuma’s Revenge… right now: 1. Sims, 2. Eh, still kinda like Sankey a tad bit more here, but it’s tough. I’m not going to argue against Sims. 3. Parkey. 4. Crowell.

  56. Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
    (link)

    5. PPR league with 3 WR starting and owning these, a.brown/garcon/wayne/j.jones (OAK)/t.will/wright, drop wright or j.jones for any of these? j.brown/evans/hunter/moncrief (if wayne doesn’t play). Some sites really rank evans low. brown being ranked low i understand.
