I just snuck out of a court ordered gambling rehab facility to write this post, so I’ll have to be brief. After I was arrested for stealing old ladies’ purses from the retirement home down the block to fund my string of Arizona Cardinals’ Super Bowl wagers (a 50:1 lock!), the judge sentenced me to 6 month’s of in-patient rehab. Since I’ll be releasing my weekly fantasy football rankings each Thursday morning for the duration of the season, I’ve decided to throw in some bonus bold Thursday Night Football predictions along with my expertly handicapped pick for the contest:

Indianapolis Colts (-2) at Tennessee Titans 

Forecast: That makes two straight winners against the spread after the 0-7 start, I’m really ruining my draft pick now! It’s Philly Rivers and his 28 kids, headed to clown in Nashtown this week. I know what you’re thinking: how did the Rivers family gain another 10 kids in the past couple weeks? Philip and Tiffany obviously get busy like bunnies. And much like bunnies, they also birth baby litters of 5-10. You’d think by now Philip Rivers would be used to having a bunch of newborns at home, but it turns out you never get used to decuplets. After 17 straight days of non-stop diaper sniffing, and six minutes total sleep, Rivers will be a shot-putting zombie against the Titans Thursday night. Look for Vrabel and his COVID carrying group for goons to take full advantage. Keep a close eye out for the guy on the toilet in the background. Titans 31, Colts 21

Wager:  Titans -2 (1 Unit)

2020 Season: 2-7 (-2.55 Units) 

Anyway, here’s my fantasy football rankings for week 10 which will be frequently updated until Sunday kickoff:

    14m deep league:

    1. Would you drop freeman for mayfield (only have stafford) or lutton (if I can’t get mayfield via waiver)
    2. Hollywood or Jakobi at WR
    3. Dobbins or hooper at Flex (Ingram back?)

      1. Sure if you don’t think you’d ever start Freeman. Seems like he should be tradable with 14 teams though.

      2. Hollywood

      3. Dobbins

  2. Homers got the Runs says:

    I need an opinion. I need to start pulling off some wins asap in order to make the playoffs. What would you expect for a return if I was willing to package Gibson and Ekeler for an upgrade at RB? Ekeler should be back in the next couple weeks and definitely before playoffs. I figure a team who is assured a chance at playoffs may bite.

      Maybe you could land someone like gurley or Conner. Could shoot for Sanders or Chubb but guessing that would get shot down…

    .5 ppr

    Give: Jacobs and Davis
    Receive: A. Jones and Boyd

    Other RBS cook, Edmonds, Duke, pollard

      Corey Davis or Mike?

      I like the Jones side quite a bit regardless but much more if it’s corey davis…

      • Gio says:
        (link)

        Mike Davis… cmc owner is the trade partner.

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:

          Gotcha, would still do it…

  5. William Hung says:

    Stupid Kenyan Drake practicing this week… I have both Edmonds and Drake, so I could start them both. I have Zack Moss in my other RB spot if I just start 1 of them.

    My W10 lineup is shaping up as:
    QB – Kyler Murray
    WR1 – Michael Thomas
    WR2 – Cooper Kupp
    RB1 – Edmonds/Drake
    RB2 – Edmonds/Drake/Moss
    TE – Goedert
    FLEX – Godwin
    K – Carlson
    DEF – NE
    Bench:
    RB – Montgomery, Dobbins
    WR – Antonio Brown, Tee Higgins
    TE – Hurst
    IR – Mostert

    Besides RB, am I crazy for thinking of playing Tee Higgins over Godwin?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Wait and see on Drake. Don’t think I’d start both though.

      Godwin over Higgins for me but I don’t think it’s crazy.

    Hey Donks

    Would you move Ekeler for Samuel and Mike Davis is you are in a must win week

    Standard 14 teams 8 make playoffs, I’m at 2-7

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Yep, do what you have to when it’s must win…

      • Nightpandas says:
        (link)

        My other offer is Lindsay and one of Boyd/Ruggs/Deebo

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          I’d go with Lindsay and Boyd

          • Nightpandas says:
            (link)

            Also Mike Davis and Amari Cooper for my Ekeler

            • Donkey Teeth

              Donkey Teeth says:

              I like that one most

  7. Charlie says:

    12 team .5ppr
    trade away Scary Terry for mike davis and Jerry Jeudy?
    Have Michael Thomas, Deebo Sam, Corey Davis
    Rb’s are Zeke Chris Carson, Gus Edwards & Zack Moss

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I’d pass, it’s fair though if you end up needing the RB for this week

  8. Joe Football says:
    (link)

    In a half-PPR non-keeper, where I am fighting for a playoff spot, I have a rough RB situation. I have Henry, Gallman, and Henderson (questionable), plus Ekeler and Gaskin hurt. I have a surplus at WR with: Fuller, Higgins, Kirk, Robinson, and Samuel. Another team may be willing to trade either Drake or Moss for one of my WRs.

    What’s a good offer for me to make, i.e. which WR should I offer and which RB should I target? Thank you!

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I’d try Samuel or Kirk for Moss. Would do either for Drake also.

      • Joe Football says:
        (link)

        Thanks! Any inclination as to whether Kirk or Samuel will hold more value ROS? I’m not exactly feeling great about playing Robinson against tough defenses.

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          I’d rather have Kirk rest of season

  9. The sportsguy says:
    (link)

    Big start to the Monday/Thursday slate thanks both Perrimen and Jacoby. Have Henry and Aj Brown tonight and then options at TE and Flex.

    1. TY and Burton
    2. Jonnu and Pittman or Pascal or Wilkins

    As bad as TY has been he seems to bring the greatest upside.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Agreed, TY is due for a breakout. I’d go #1…

  10. Snarf says:
    (link)

    Dobbins that high?

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      I’m more surprised at David Montgomery’s ranking considering he’s questionable with a concussion

      • Donkey Teeth

        Donkey Teeth says:
        (link)

        That ranking just assumes he’s playing. If he doesn’t play they he’ll be removed…

      • i don't want to brag but i have irritable bowel syndrome says:
        (link)

        probably doubtful by now, but these concussions always look like that by thurs mostly even into friday, often into sat (no good updates then suddenly “he cleared it!” on sunday or sat night). having a whole bunch of d-mont, j-jax, and some mixon not a good week in tons of spots. had to start wilkins tonight in one spot having these:
        mixon (IR), d-mont (can get nall later if i want to play whoever is starting for CHI as they are monday), kelley, mattison, gurley, d.harris (against BAL, outside chance of being hurt too, figured wilkins had to play over him now), 14 teamer there, and obv i have better WR or TE to throw into flex rather than a 3rd of those.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I don’t think I have Dobbins that high. Flex option, ranked 3 spots below expert consensus. He still has high upside but very low floor…

  11. The sportsguy says:
    (link)

    Decision at flex…no PPR, 1 point for 15 yards, not 10

    Corey Davis tonight or wait:

    Montgomery
    R James
    G Davis
    Guyton
    J Graham

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Tough. Think I’d go corey davis since Montgomery is looking doubtful.

  12. bobsnyder4210 says:
    (link)

    Follow up to my overcrowded roster question a few days ago…no frills 1/2 ppr…ended up keeping my core team:
    RB: A Jones/J Williams, Conner, Gibson, Lindsay, Moss
    WR: D Adams, McLauren, Thielen, Boyd
    TE/K/DST: Waller + streamers (Carlson/Dolphins right now)

    Managed thru a couple transactions to flip Big Ben, JuJu and Bell to eventually end up with Ryan & Wentz at QB. If they can get me to the playoffs, then I can dump one (likely Ryan bec of schedule) plus one or two RBs to open streamer spots to get thru the playoffs. Or if Gordon gets suspended the I have another lead back to work with. I think I did OK…thoughts?

      Looks good!

  13. Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

    the lines for this are all over the place, opened at -1 for somebody (both i think in some spots).

    against season: 4-2
    random season: 2-4

    random this week: against: IND +2
    against: IND +2

    how are you only down -2.55 units at 2-7, did you bet very large in your wins and min on the losses?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Won 5 units on packers last week and 4 units on the Panthers the week before. But also lost 4 units on the colts a few weeks back. I think the rest have all be 1 unit or a half unit even.

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        ahhhhh, i knew i should’ve gotten down on IND as dogs in real life, that D would finally do something bigger than just hold aj brown down (and honestly he did that to himself, dropped a maybe TD, def super long gain, and i don’t need that have a bunch of tannehill/aj brown all over. keep getting lucky on those jonnu TD’s too).

        • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
          (link)

          oh no, tannehill injured, i don’t need that for numerous spots, esp a 16’er with only tannehill and mullens (and dalton in IR slot, when he’s back i gotta drop one of him or mullens). ok, he’s back but shaken, i thought at first it was a leg thing.

          • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
            (link)

            good god NE knew what it was up to cutting gostkow, dude got old. misses kicks at insane rate, hard to believe TEN hasn’t outright lost more games only from him (today isn’t one of those, at least yet)

            • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
              (link)

              hahahaha, IND just did exactly what i used to do for QB sneaks in tecmo super bowl to dodge injuries, put in the backup in case he gets his blocked knocked off. some lucky twit in 20 team leagues with QB hoarding rules and bye week problems just got happy, or somebody really stupid and probably inactive in 2 QB deep leagues.
