jets-fan-fist-pump-against-bills

Well, this is a matchup that makes me think: Man, what did I do this week to deserve this? And on a Thursday night no less! You know we’re going to see a 3-0 game here, and if we’re lucky, maybe it’ll be 6-3. I could even see a 1-0 game. Honestly. I mean, one can only hope that we get a safety out of this so we can at least have a few laughs. Oh, god, I almost forgot this marks the debut of Phil f*cking Simms, and his favorite enabler, Jim Nantz. What. The. Hell. Not only that, but we have a hobbled Sammy Watkins to deal with, Tyrod Taylor trying to climb himself back into relevance, and a Jets offense that’s more boring than Cris Collinsworth hyping up Tom Brady. I guess this is my way of telling you to make sure all your favorite alcohol beverages and antacids are stocked up. And probably get your ear plugs, and probably blindfolds in the ready position…

The rankings have been updated just now for tonight’s game, and can be found here.

      @A bag of sand: Honestly, I’m okay with it. He looked great in Week 1 and didn’t even seem 100%.

    no woods in the top 76 WR’s in PPR this week? is that on purpose? what about wheaton (guessing he’d move up later in week once you know whether he’s playing or not). i gotta play 3 WR and 1 flex out of
    t.smith/s.smith/jeffrey/woods/streater/wheaton
    also have uzomah at TE with graham on bench too. so it looks like woods might be playing in this lineup (20 teamer)

      @Drew: Maclin, Floyd, McCoy, Lat, Ingram is what I might do there.

      • Drew says:
        (link)

        @Jay: right on thanks. You think macklin and Floyd over jones jr?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Drew: Wait, that’s Marvin Jones, right? Sorry, read that wrong or had a brain fart. I’d go Marvin over Maclin.

            @Jay: cool thanks jay wish me luck

  4. DT says:

    Bennett or Virgil Green at TE? looking to drop one for Chris Ivory who was dropped in a 12 team ppr league. is Ivory a better pick up over Bilal powell? Cant wait for this game to start! lets get it haha

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @DT: I think so with Ivory. And I might do Bennett there.

      I would, yes. Risky though.

  7. Joedogg says:

    Play Sammy tonight or Marvin jones?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Going Jones there.

  8. William Hung says:

    Well this game has exceeded everyone’s expectations. Tyrod with 1 pass TD, Fitz with 1 pass TD, and Forte with 1 Rushing TD. At the end of the day, it’s a good way to start Week 2 with the way Week 1 ended with Rams and Niners… and it’s not even half time yet!

  9. William Hung says:
    (link)

    So no safety help to defend against the deep ball, huh?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I have no idea where this offense came from.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: FitzMagic looked like Tom Brady with some of those throws and Tyrod Taylor came out of nowhere to throw 2 deep bombs… it’s like the Jets and Bills had each other’s offensive players in Fantasy

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          I felt like I was doing lithium that game.

  10. Gentleman Chris says:

    Powells value going forward? They are riding Forte hard.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Hard and often. I still like Powell, but less so now. Honestly… Forte is going to have a season-ending injury by Week 7 if this keeps up.

  11. Manziel says:
    (link)

    What type of player would you offer up to try and buy josh gordon? I think the owner is off to a rough start and can’t and wants guys who’ll give him value now..

    Would you deal Forsett and c-mike to get josh gordon?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I don’t think Forsett has much value, but I think C-Mike is fair and could be enough, for sure.

      • Manziel says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so just send them both trying to get josh back?

        Real quick why don’t you like Forsett? There’s an outside chance he gets a bigger role, no? He already has a 50:50 hold on the job. Same ratio as the Atlanta mess..

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Manziel: You can, but remember, he has to have the need for a RB and RB depth for that to work, which is where my Forsett comment is coming from. Both for Gordon is fair.

  12. Mel says:

    In a PPR league, I have been offered Brandon Cooks and Jeremy Hill for Todd Gurley. Is this a fair trade?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      It’s fair, and depending on who Cooks is upgrading, I’m a little tempted.

      • Mel says:
        (link)

        @Jay: OK. Thanks for the advice. I have Antonio Brown and Doug Baldwin as my starting WR, and McCoy, R. Matthews, M. Jones, and Gurley as my rb’s.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Mel: I would actually hold based on this team. You need to keep an RB1 here with Matthews and your WRs are pretty good.

  13. Sam-I-and!?! says:

    View on sammy Watkins ROS change much tonight? I think if his foot is just as “sore” as it was yesterday by tomorrow or the weekend tonight was a good step despite the low yardage output. My thinking is all we want to see is if he can play a full game or not, he still looked fast..

    That said I didn’t see him the last 3 min of the game so why wasn’t he in when it mattered most? Deft one of the hardest situations to gauge right now. You can win leagues if you trade him away/trade for him and get it right.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I don’t think he had a bad game because of the foot. I think in the pregame interview, he did mention that just getting it warmed up makes a huge difference, for whatever that’s worth. But, like you alluded to, I think he was on a snap count, or maybe something did flare up at the end. We’ll just have to keep an eye on the reports, the extra few days of rest should be a good thing here.

  14. Shady says:

    View lesean McCoy as a rb1? Rb2?

    $10 stefon diggs/ $3 Michael for $50 lesean McCoy?

    You can only keep 2 guys every year

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Shady: He’s basically the bridge between both at the moment. If you are getting McCoy, and you’re going for it, I think its a good deal.

  15. Mikey says:

    I have a chance to buy low on Gurley. My Forte for Gurley; should I pull the trigger and not look back? PPR League
    Mike

      @Mikey: In a heartbeat. (Sorry for the delay, just got the notification to this now for some reason.)
