Please?

Imagine an alley my friends. And in that alley, imagine a dumpster. And, if you can, imagine a fire in that dumpster. Some would call it a “dumpster fire”. Good for them, because it’s a good name for it. I also have a good name. I call it “Falcons Defense”. After giving up the most yards in the NFL this season, and the only team not to register a sack, I think a new strategy needs to implemented. Just let the Buccaneers score so you can get the ball back quicker. I’m not sure you’ll win, but I’ll at least be very entertained. And as the scores would probably end up in the quadruple digits, I’ll probably be very turned on as well. Hey baby, what’s your name, what’s yo– holy sh*t, that’s like 28 touchdowns. MARRY ME.

In case you missed the news earlier today, Bobby Rainey is your starter at running back tonight with Doug Martin still having some knee troubles.

However, what was not as expected is that Roddy White looks to be inactive for the game tonight.

Unless he’s talking about a different kind of context. Like, they were going to go out to have dinner or something, and that was called off. Probably because there’s a game tonight or along those lines. Who knows. As with all things this vague, I would wait until the last possible moment to make your roster decisions. If he is out, Harry Douglas becomes your number one benefactor. Wait, what if Canfora is, oh I’m sorry, what if La Canfora is just going blind? Should we send him a doctor? HE CAN’T SEE THINGS. INCLUDING RODDY WHITE.

UPDATE: And it looks like Roddy White has been officially made inactive (hamstring). But not invisible La Canfora!

Drinking Game

Note: I’ll be doing Corona for the beer portion, and Vodka for the shots portion.

Take one sip of beer if…

Someone says Muscle Hamster.

Tony Gonzalez is mentioned.

Josh McCown is referred to as a “Game Manager”.

Whenever the camera cuts to Mike Glennon.

Matt Ryan makes this look: (Take baby sips…)

matt-ryan-7

Take one shot of liquor if…

You see Arthur Blank looking pensive with his bizarre pedo-mustache.

Mike Smith reacts positive to something.

Tampa Bay is called for any kind of 15-yard penalty.

 

Totally Legitmate Game Prediction

Buccaneers – -1 MRSA.

Falcons – 1 Jacquizz plus, I don’t know, 3 bonus points. Because Steven Jackson is a senior citizen and deserves an AARP discount.

    Hey! What do you think of the trade: My jeremy Hill and Sanders for his Morris and Brian Quick

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Nikko: It’s fair… and I like Morris and Quick, but I’d hold here.

      • Nikko says:

        @Jay: What if instead of Sanders, I offer Vincent Jackson?

    Hey Jay,
    Roddy White just bailed me

    Which 3 do you like best:
    AJ Green, Golden Tate, Torrey Smith, Harry Douglas, Justin Hunter

    Its PPR

      @Nugs: Good to hear! That’s the main feature of these new gameday posts this year. I’m here to help break injury stuff and answer all questions during the game. And drink so much.

      This week only, I’d go Tate, Douglas and Green. I’m iffy on Green though, as his status is… all over the place.

      • Nugs says:

        @Jay:

        Thanks Jay! You’re the man.
        I can’t believe you answer all these questions. That’s some crazy ass shit.
        Keep up the awesome work! We all appreciate it

    If, due to 60% of your team being injured, you were forced to start D.Freeman or Sankey this week which would it be Jay?

    I don’t expect anything from either so I figure start Freeman to give me something to watch in the only game on.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      Freeman.

      • A Hill O' Beans says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Wow! What’s the score gotta be for Freeman to get some work? 60-0? 70-0?

  5. Hans says:

    Jay, how’d this trade turn out. Non ppr. My donald brown, hill, white and patterson for forte and quick?

      Jay says:

      @Hans: I like that deal for you.

  6. Steve says:

    Hey Jay,

    Should I trade Joique Bell for Alshon Jeffery in a PPR league?

    Thanks for the help as always!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve: I’d do that, yes.

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        I accepted the trade and got Jeffery – thanks for the help. He has AD 28 and is desperate for a replacement RB. I guess that’s how championships are going to be won in this very strange/sad season.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Steve: Yeah, crazy season so far. This game included.

    Someone dropped Peterson in one of my leagues. Stash, or lost cause?

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Jeff P: Depends who you would drop. If it doesn’t hurt, stash.

    Do I start Fred Jackson or Kendall Wright at my flex

      @Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: I’d go Wright.

      • Dom B says:
        (link)

        Also Doug Martin worth stashing

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Dom B: Certainly.

    Really sucks when your gut was right on Rainey, but you played him anyway, and you benched Vereen for him…

    Luckily I have Julio and Ryan on the same team, too.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Yeah, I think you’ll be fine. Hah.

    • goodfold2 says:

      @Wilsonian: he still got over 13 pts in PPR.

    Soooo Rainey is screwing me! I need Murray & R Jennings to save my team (well Rodgers/Cobb are the real heros with some Edelman on the side)

      @Nick: He screwed all of us, trust me on this.

    So if I own Doug and Rainey – am I happy Rainey is terrible to avoid the RBBC?
    Despite the fact I started him

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Yeah, nothing but good news for Doug Martin owners.

    .5PPR I have an illegal roster and need to drop one.

    Who do I drop out of Baldwin, Hyde and Kelce?

    Here is the rest of my team:
    QB: Rodgers
    WR: Megatron, Crabtree, Colston, Cooks, Cruz, Wheaton
    RB: Charles, Stacy, West, Miller, Knile
    TE: Cameron

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Ron: Baldwin.

    drop shonn for crowell?

      @Zandy: Yeah, I’m cool with that.

    well we win some/lose some with the rainey thing. I’m not going to call for your head like i’m sure some fans will. The advice was sound as long as doug martin wasn’t in the picture. It was a good start with a bad result, nothing more, nothing less.

    that being said, think his garbage time drive spiked the convo of a RBBC still? i’m a doug owner too and was looking at rainey’s perfomance with a glass half full approach with ‘well at least he’s playing himself out of playing time’ but i just dk.

    what do you think the touch distribution is like if doug comes back. 15-18 doug, 6-9 Rainey? strictly a ‘hot hand approach”. it’s a mess im sure

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @whhhat: Certainly. He wasn’t completely useless, as in PPR formats, he probably did fine. But not what I was expecting, for sure. I think that’s reasonable, but it all depends if Martin gets healthy. Last nights game was nothing but good news for Martin owners.

    It’s too bad I didn’t catch this article before TNF, I would’ve enjoyed the drinking game!

    Auction league, +.5 PPR….messed up my RB situation at the draft, and now I’m choosing my starters from the likes of Fred Jackson, Donald Brown, and Darren McFadden. It’s not good.

    I was just offered Matt Forte for Calvin Johnson. My other WR are Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Andrew Hawkins. Would you make this deal?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Adam: We do it for every prime time game, so be sure to drink with us!

      I think you’re fine to hold here, Your WR core isn’t ideal, but it’s not bad by any means.

  17. SMLV1 says:
    (link)

    Jay, I need a WR3 between T. Williams, J. Hunter and T. Smith. You have them very tightly ranked with Williams one ahead of Hunter and Smith 2 below Hunter. Should I check back in sunday, to see if things changed? or Roll with Williams?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @SMLV1: Always double check updated rankings for any breaking news that affects it, like injuries and such, but my feeling is that order will stay the same.
