Since it is a big news day, let’s fuse what would have been two posts into one. I’ll put my week 9 rankings at the bottom for your viewing pleasure. But, let’s talk about the trade deadline first. Things certainly heated up after lunch on the NFL trading circuit. We had a couple of major moves at the wide receiver position that has an impact on a lot of players. Demaryius Thomas was traded from the Denver Broncos to the Houston Texans and Golden Tate was traded from the Detroit Lions to the Philadelphia Eagles.

We have to keep in mind that players going to a new team in the middle of the season may not hit the ground running. Look at Josh Gordon so far this season with the Patriots. He’s productive, but he’s not the WR1 that he has the potential of being with the Patriots down the line.

Let’s start with the Thomas acquisition:

Demaryius ThomasThomas is not the guy that we can count on for top 20 WR seasons that he used to be. Ultimately he may see a little bit of a boost moving on from Denver. Thomas may end up being a dependable flex play but his potential is capped Keke Coutee and DeAndre Hopkins being in the same huddle.

Keke Coutee– The Demaryius Thomas acquisition also caps the potential of Keke Coutee. UNLESS, of course, they try to uncork his speed downfield. With Will Fuller sidelined for the rest of the season, it would be nice for the Texans to have a deep threat. So far, Coutee is averaging under 10 yards per reception and Houston would like to make that higher. I’m still speculatively adding Coutee off of the waiver wire, but D.J. Moore is definitely a higher priority.

Deshaun Watson- Bringing in a veteran wide receiver will only help open things up for Watson. As Watson continues to heal from the Cowboys massacre, I believe that the Texans will begin put the pedal to the metal more often early on in games.

Courtland SuttonSutton has a huge opportunity stepping into an every down role as a Denver Broncos wide receiver. Sutton “broke out” last week by going for 78 yards against the Chiefs. His highest reception total to this point is three which he has done a couple of times. This should increase weekly going forward. Sutton is at the top of my list for pick ups.  

Golden Tate to the Eagles

Golden TateThe production for Golden Tate has been there in 2018 just like in years past but it has slowed down a little bit since after the Lions bye week. Tate hasn’t scored a touchdown since week 4. This move will be anywhere from lateral to slightly beneficial for Tate owners. Tate gets the bye week to grasp as much of the playbook as he can. Alshon Jeffery is a solid WR1 for Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz is a monster, but I’m sure Doug Pederson is thrilled Tate is coming to town.

Alshon Jeffery and Zach ErtzI don’t see this acquisition affecting either of these players. Jeffery and Ertz have built in roles in this offense and both excel at them. Plus, there is not much of a running game going on in Philadelphia unless Josh Adams is able to carve out a significant role. Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthew’s potential fantasy value has now turned into dust.

Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr.- These two both have more value because of Tate’s exit based on increase in volume. We have seen what Golladay is capable of earlier in the season and we saw what Jones Jr. has left in the tank last Sunday. 

Matthew StaffordIt doesn’t help Stafford to lose a weapon as valuable as Golden Tate, but there are enough pieces in this passing game for him to survive. When Theo Riddick is back healthy, it would be surprising if the Lion’s miss a beat.

Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens

Ty Montgomery- I can imagine from watching the Baltimore offense this season that the Ravens will Involve Ty Montgomery in some creative packages. Look at how they use Lamar Jackson. Ty Montgomery is worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues. He might take over the Buck Allen role in this offense.

Alex CollinsNo worries if you are an Alex Collins owner. Collins has an established role in this offense as a first and second down back and he has been more involved in the passing game and the red zone lately. I expect him to continue to see his share of touches going forward.

Javorius Allen– The Ravens have finally realized that they need more explosiveness out of their 3rd down and passing back. Buck has been a safety net but continues to show that he is allergic to making a big play. I expect Allen to be the biggest loser of this acquisition. 

Aaron JonesThis further cements Jones’ role as the primary back in Green Bay. Jones has recently shown why fantasy analysts had so much excitement for him in the middle rounds of drafts. This should alleviate worries about Jones not getting double digit touches going forward. The more that Jones touches the ball, the more things should open up for him.

        I mean, if you’re between a couple players, then by all means, ask. But don’t post your roster and tell the writers to set your lineup.

        Take SOME ownership of your own team.

    Hey man! .5 ppr league here I just received a couple trade offers just seeing what you think. I’m thinking hell no to both. They are from two different owners FYI

    Offer 1: I send Keenan Allen + Tyler Boyd
    I receive: Carson + marlon Mack. I feel if I’m dealing Keenan + Boyd I should get either his mixon or zeke. His RBs are Gurley, zeke, mixon, Carson , marlon mack , Smallwood.
    — he’s weak at WR. It’s a keeper league he kept zeke & Gurley that’s why he has them all lol. Maybe next year I’ll have it be just one keeper

    Offer #2: I send chubb
    I receive Kirk cousins
    My QB is Ryan Fitzpatrick who I just added offer waivers
    Go with cousins who’s been solid?
    Cousins schedule:
    Week 9 vs lions
    Week 10 bye
    Week 11: @ Chicago
    Week 12: vs packers
    Week 13: vs pats
    Week 14: round 1 @ Seattle
    Week 15: round 2 vs dolphins
    Week 16 championship round @ det

    Offer # 3 is asinine, he’s a different owner from above:
    I send Kerryon Johnson
    I receive Vance McDonald & stills , I actually reached out to him yesterday saying he will have to up the ante if he wants kerryon I said this offer is an insult. I said I’d do kerryon + Boyd for Michael Thomas. Since kerryon will immediately help his RB depth : he has Lamar Miller, Tevin Coleman, dalvin cook, Richard & yeldon. If he deals Mike Thomas he still has AB

    Or another owner has both Watson & Matt Ryan he said I could have his Ryan. Offer Chubb for Ryan?

    Ryan’s schedule:
    Week 9 @ Washington
    Week 10 @ Cleveland
    Week 11 vs cowboys
    Week 12 thanksgiving night @ New Orleans
    Week 13 vs ravens
    Week 14 round 1 @ GB
    Week 15 vs cardinals round 2
    Week 16 championship round @ Carolina

    I know I have Fitzpatrick but Matt Stafford is also available too and before you laugh dak Prescott is available & he has some nice matchups too

    FYI my rbs are DJ, Melvin Gordon, brieda, ekeler, Kerryon Johnson , Chubb, Doug Martin

    My WRs are Hilton, Keenan Allen, Tyler Boyd, amari Cooper, Sterling Shepard, Doug Baldwin, kupp, Geronimo Allison, Corey Davis

      No I wouldn’t take any of those trades. I’m not even communicating with these people until they come up with better offers hahaha. I’m holding onto Cousins and using Fitzpatrick next week. No need to overthink iy

        @MB:

        Holding onto cousins ? I don’t own cousins – I was offered cousins by dealing my chubb , would you get cousins to have ROS & Fitzpatrick for next week?

      (link)

      @clokwerc: my guess is you are the winston owner here, otherwise yr talking bye week fill in QB or streamer here (pretty sure nobody else lost job/got injured from QB’s last week). plus WHO ELSE but the guy who had winston gets trade rape “offers” like this (the dreams this guy had who WW’d fitz just now oh my). the guy doing this to you sounds exactly like the kind of twit who drafts 3-4 QB’s and assumes somebody will give him a better RB or WR then is he deserves here, and while he’s being “smart” holding 3-4 QB’s other better RB/WR are being taken by other owners for weeks and weeks. then if and only if a big name QB goes out injured does he get anything remotely like the value he spent on all those QB’s. trubisky/fitz could easily have near identical points ROS and i’d bet money if ONE of them does a good deal better than the other it would be trubisky (winston might easily get that job back again); but what won’t likely happen at all is you finding one RB with near ROS value as KJ/AAron, much less 2.

    20 team dynasty half-PPR BUT rushing yards are 10 per point and receiving 15. lots of other scoring for things like: .25 for each thrown completion, 1st downs receiving/rushing .5, 1st down passing .75, small bonuses for rushing/receiving to 100/150/200 and throwing 200/300/350. small bonuses (that are bigger for the rushing/receiving than the throwing) for 40 yard plays and 40 yard TD’s.

    2 other rules, i need minimum 10 WAS players (IR guys count) and the max QB rule is as many active guys from ONE real life team as you want and UP TO ONE from a 2nd team. people in good shape just have 2 from 2 teams (like me). i’ve won this league a decent amount since it’s inception (was about the 11-12th best team the 1st year but got unlucky and got like 17th)

    QB (1) goff/cousins (used to need cousins as WAS player, not anymore though, now he’s trade depth that it was yet to come up with good value, till now)
    RB (1) thompson, lat murray, ekeler, c.thompson, perine, blount (is being dropped tonight, i’m using my #1 waiver on mostart, i need possibly useful RB’s here badly, and he’s been their best guy when not hurt, FAR more yards per carry than anybody else, he looked DAMN good a couple of weeks ago when i saw him)
    WR (2) t-will (LAC), m-will (LAC), doctson, grant, k.benjamin (good lord that benjamin for l.collins trade looks bad now, made about 2 years ago when benjamin was a worthy WR to trade for and i had S depth to NYG owner)
    TE (1) reed/VD
    1 flex (so if you have 2 useful RB’s you put one here all the time)
    IR (5) kelley, guice (2nd best back from draft grades, would’ve went top 4 or higher had he not missed this whole year, i got him 20th overall by luck from that)
    K (1) WAS kicker
    LB (3) (the years i won this was a MAJOR strength, weaker now): l.david, kendricks (MIN), lee (OAK), walker (IND), burfict
    DT (2) AAron, allen (WAS)
    DE (2) campbell, cam heyward (has DT now too, although this is hurting his stats), okwara (LB too, and he’s been GREAT for about a month almost)
    S (2) swearinger, baker, vaccaro (sounds back this week, ranked quite highly when healthy)
    CB (2) roberts (NYJ, only has value with injuries lately), awuzie, dunbar (WAS)
    IR (5) kwon A (burfict can be put here later in week)

    finally got a possible trade for one of my good QB’s. would you do all of these
    1. cousins + lat murray for bortles (he’s far better than anybody in FA though, he has a job and produces positive points, unlike say peterman) + DJ (ARI). for some reason the DJ owner with brees (probably realizing brees is getting old as shit) wants another top end QB and actually cousins, with all of his short throws he makes is better than in standard leagues due to many completions and 1st downs. i’m in about 5th right now but am actually tied for 3rd in points
    (which means it’s FROM the QB’s mostly, my RB’s and WR’s are not close to as good as previous years, weeks ago i was worse than this)
    2. cousins + lat murray + pretty high draft pick for bortles/DJ

    3. (this one i’m assuming DO NOT DO): cousins + lat murray + guice for wilkins + bortles + DJ.

    for scoring relevance, ROS (by yahoo, as i need some sort of stats to show for this):
    DJ projects at ROS total of 100.19 (12.52 per game), for totals the 14th RB going forward (had been the 23rd thus far), better than 14th per game though, as he’s got a bye just now, others already had theirs.
    cousins = 240.86 (12th), AVG (30.11), but a bit better, has a bye coming
    goff = 248.11 (9th), AVG (31.01) but a bit better, has a bye coming
    bortles = 202. 02 (27th), AVG 25.25), bye right now, BUT of course is on a cliff as far as losing job entirely. i told opp that getting bortles back isn’t imperative here (i don’t really want to have to give much more). i’m fine with nabbing peterman (available) or some other hump for one week to get get DJ, don’t want to lose any of guice, probably not m.williams (i’ve now cycled through drafting with high picks ALL of these, none of them held long enough to give back good value, often dropped JUST as they were about to: m.lee, cord patterson, doctson (still have), m.williams, agholor, treadwell), NOT aaron donald/l.david.

    basically how much would you be willing to nab DJ forever. DJ/guice next year would take me back to being a DOMINANT team i’m fairly sure (last few years my total points were just sick)

    20 team dynasty half-PPR BUT rushing yards are 10 per point and receiving 15. lots of other scoring for things like: .25 for each thrown completion, 1st downs receiving/rushing .5, 1st down passing .75, small bonuses for rushing/receiving to 100/150/200 and throwing 200/300/350. small bonuses (that are bigger for the rushing/receiving than the throwing) for 40 yard plays and 40 yard TD’s.

    2 other rules, i need minimum 10 WAS players (IR guys count) and the max QB rule is as many active guys from ONE real life team as you want and UP TO ONE from a 2nd team. people in good shape just have 2 from 2 teams (like me). i’ve won this league a decent amount since it’s inception (was about the 11-12th best team the 1st year but got unlucky and got like 17th)

    QB (1) goff/cousins (used to need cousins as WAS player, not anymore though, now he’s trade depth that it was yet to come up with good value, till now)
    RB (1) lat murray, ekeler, c.thompson, perine, blount (is being dropped tonight, i’m using my #1 waiver on mostart, i need possibly useful RB’s here badly, and he’s been their best guy when not hurt, FAR more yards per carry than anybody else, he looked DAMN good a couple of weeks ago when i saw him)
    WR (2) t-will (LAC), m-will (LAC), doctson, grant, k.benjamin (good lord that benjamin for l.collins trade looks bad now, made about 2 years ago when benjamin was a worthy WR to trade for and i had S depth to NYG owner)
    TE (1) reed/VD
    1 flex (so if you have 2 useful RB’s you put one here all the time)
    IR (5) kelley, guice (2nd best back from draft grades, would’ve went top 4 or higher had he not missed this whole year, i got him 20th overall by luck from that)
    K (1) WAS kicker
    LB (3) (the years i won this was a MAJOR strength, weaker now): l.david, kendricks (MIN), lee (OAK), walker (IND), burfict
    DT (2) AAron, allen (WAS)
    DE (2) campbell, cam heyward (has DT now too, although this is hurting his stats), okwara (LB too, and he’s been GREAT for about a month almost)
    S (2) swearinger, baker, vaccaro (sounds back this week, ranked quite highly when healthy)
    CB (2) roberts (NYJ, only has value with injuries lately), awuzie, dunbar (WAS)
    IR (5) kwon A (burfict can be put here later in week)

    finally got a possible trade for one of my good QB’s. would you do all of these
    1. cousins + lat murray for bortles (he’s far better than anybody in FA though, he has a job and produces positive points, unlike say peterman) + DJ (ARI). for some reason the DJ owner with brees (probably realizing brees is getting old as shit) wants another top end QB and actually cousins, with all of his short throws he makes is better than in standard leagues due to many completions and 1st downs. i’m in about 5th right now but am actually tied for 3rd in points
    (which means it’s FROM the QB’s mostly, my RB’s and WR’s are not close to as good as previous years, weeks ago i was worse than this)
    2. cousins + lat murray + pretty high draft pick for bortles/DJ

    3. (this one i’m assuming DO NOT DO): cousins + lat murray + guice for wilkins + bortles + DJ.

    for scoring relevance, ROS (by yahoo, as i need some sort of stats to show for this):
    DJ projects at ROS total of 100.19 (12.52 per game), for totals the 14th RB going forward (had been the 23rd thus far), better than 14th per game though, as he’s got a bye just now, others already had theirs.
    cousins = 240.86 (12th), AVG (30.11), but a bit better, has a bye coming
    goff = 248.11 (9th), AVG (31.01) but a bit better, has a bye coming
    bortles = 202. 02 (27th), AVG 25.25), bye right now, BUT of course is on a cliff as far as losing job entirely. i told opp that getting bortles back isn’t imperative here (i don’t really want to have to give much more). i’m fine with nabbing peterman (available) or some other hump for one week to get get DJ, don’t want to lose any of guice, probably not m.williams (i’ve now cycled through drafting with high picks ALL of these, none of them held long enough to give back good value, often dropped JUST as they were about to: m.lee, cord patterson, doctson (still have), m.williams, agholor, treadwell), NOT aaron donald/l.david.

    basically how much would you be willing to nab DJ forever. DJ/guice next year would take me back to being a DOMINANT team i’m fairly sure (last few years my total points were just sick)

    sorry if double post, i don’t see the first one (apostrophe’s do something to system now since rudy changed something over a year ago)

      What’s up man! I’m doing the 2nd trade. I agree that getting DJ forever is a great idea and this is the cheapest he’ll ever be. Pull the trigger.

    I need to start one of Michel/Richard/Ekeler in my 0.5 ppr league, but the choice is somewhat complicated by the fact that Michel’s health is uncertain and Richard plays on TNF. Given the uncertainty around Michel, would you suggest I start Richard, or bench Richard and hope to play Michel (knowing that, if Michel is out or uncertain on Sunday morning, I’ll have to play Ekeler instead)?

    • MB

      MB says:

      You can probably wait and play Ekeler if you have to

  22. Beware the Shit Rope says:

    need 2 out of these, assume mostart plays (me thinks a lot of his low ranking is doubt over that): m.davis, mostart, montgomery (he’s ranked low too by many at FP, probably worried about role till they see it be good). PPR. need ceiling here, up against good team and i need wins somewhat soon to have any shot at playoffs.
    if breida is somehow out AND mostart is in, he’s the top of these 3 easily obviously. i see how close you have all 3 above. i’d guess if breida plays montgomery has the highest upside next.

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah I’d say Mostart and Montgomery

      • Beware the Shit Rope says:
        (link)

        @MB: now the damn FOR SURE on chris mullens (wonder if hook shots help here) might lower mostart into not over those 2? also breida still in.

        • Beware the Shit Rope says:
          (link)

          @Beware the Shit Rope: f it i need upside here anyway. OAK’s d is horrible, he’ll probably end up with like 7 short catches or something (or 2 total carries from the ankle getting worse).

    New trade offer… Theyve offered Manhoomes & D. Moore, or Mahommes and C. Kirk, or Mahommes and C. Thompson for Kamara & Tate.. Clearly he knows something i dont know….

    No brainer to take the trade but which 1

    • MB

      MB says:

      Seems pretty cheap for Kamara. Id want Mahomes, Moore, AND Chris Thompson minimum.

    New to site. Is there a rest of season ranking? If so, where?

      We have it out in the preseason. I don’t really do ROS just weekly. Thanks for checking us out!

  25. Henry says:
    (link)

    Looking ROS and playoffs, is the Ravens D going to be worth using again or should I drop and stream?

    Even if they aren’t as bad as they were the past two weeks, they will be facing: Steelers, Bengals, Raiders, Falcons, Chiefs, Bucs and Chargers…

    Particularly for playoffs, I’m looking at:
    1. Redskins (Giants, Jags, Titans)
    2. Titans (Jags, Giants, Redskins)
    3. Seahawks (Vikings, 49ers, Chiefs)

    Thoughts? Thanks !!!

      Pick up the redskins and don’t look back

    I have a pretty stacked team in a 10 team PPR 2 QB League.

    QB Brady
    QB Mahomes
    RB Melvin
    RB Conner
    WR Hopkins
    WR Jarvis
    WR Emmanuel
    TE Kelce
    Flex Chubb

    Bench
    Latavious
    Chris Thompson
    Alshon
    Amari
    Bortles

    I have been offered Fournette, and Duke Johnson for Alshon & Latavious. Do you make the move and gamble on Fournette coming back strong? I thingk latavious loses a lot of value in the coming weeks and I will be dropping Duke for a WR such as Cobb or DJ Moore, so really its Alshon for Fournette

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah, I’m grabbing Fournette for sure

  27. Jack says:

    Standard league with 10 points bonus at 100 rushing or receiving yards.

    Drake or Golladay?

  30. El bill says:
    (link)

    Standard league.outside the playoffs as of today but been snakebit by pts against. Have thielen, Hopkins, brown, golladay. We run two flex.
    My rbs are Conner, Chubb, Kerryon, Mack, breida — and really only need to start two rbs ROS with the strength of my WRs.
    Is it worth trading chubb or Kerryon for aj green? He’d help me get through my Hopkins and thielen double bye week in 11.
    Got an offer of Chubb, Watkins, and trequan for aj and McGuire on the table. I’d prefer to trade Kerryon but McGuire in the trade means I’d give up Chubb .

      MB says:

      Yeah, you gotta do what you gotta do with these bye weeks. I think you’re deep enough to afford it

      • El bill says:
        (link)

        @MB: Just got offered this one too. My Conner and Kerryon/Chubb for aj and Michel.
        Would you get rid of Conner now with the threat of bell still looming? He’s been my one rock so it’s tough to sell despite knowing he might move to a share.
