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 (except Thanksgiving week!) 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:

 Texans (-3) at Lions

Forecast: Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a crappy Lions team playing in the morning game and your drunk Uncle Arlo yelling about his all-time favorite Lions player, Whizzer White. This is a matchup of Belichick minions with Matt Patricia and Romeo Crennel facing off—think we know who has the advantage. In honor of the holiday, Patricia will dress up as a turkey. Little does the Lions’ coach know, Matthew Stafford has a debilitating fear of turkeys—meleagrisphobia, it’s a real thing. When Stafford sees the enormous bird gobbling away on his sideline, he’ll run for the locker-room and never look back. With Chase Daniel tagging in for their meleagrisphobic QB, Detroit won’t stand a chance against J.J. Watt and the hungry Texans. Texans 31, Lions 17

Wager:  Texans -3 (4 Units)

2020 Season: 2-9 (-4.65 Units) 

Anyway, here’s my fantasy football rankings for week 12 which will be frequently updated until Sunday kickoff:

Hey man I’ve got a couple questions about who to start or sit for this week. Standard league I think either way I’m good with these two but are you starting Herbert or Josh Allen? Godwin or Kupp? Fournette or Zack Moss? Really hoping CMC comes back this week lol. Frank Gore, James White, McKissic, Kerryon Johnson are on the wire if you think I should drop Moss or Fournette for any of them.

What up DT? I’m in a deep league so most teams carry backups at every position, even Defense. I own Logan Thomas and Schultz at TE. Is Tonyan a set and forget upgrade over either of these? I’ve been starting the wrong guy every week anyway, so unless Tonyan eliminates that decision, I’m probably sit tight.

Are you a beer guy like myself? If so, I recommend picking up on Friday goose island bourbon county stout. They come out every Black Friday. They are aged in bourbon barrels so if you hold them for a few years they get slightly more potent. The alcohol % on this when you buy it on the shelf is close to 14%

Cheers!

yeah lots of companies make good high booze stouts in bourbon barrels, usually once a year. STL company schlafly makes it’s own irish stou right around paddies day for maybe 1.5 months it’s out. goose a CHI company. schlafly also used to make a 1/5 bottle size different imperial stout once a year that was very good (around 14-15%, the irish stout was probably lower at 9-10%)

I heard that McCaffrey is expected to practice today. I thought he was out this week. I planned on starting Davis at flex. Would you start gus edwards on Thursday instead in case McCaffrey plays. My 2 rb spots are locked in so flex is the only option I have. I also am benching lamb so I will be down a flex option if I don’t start edwards on Thursday and McCaffrey plays since I won’t be using Davis if cmc plays. Thanks

I won’t have lamb since he plays on Thursday. I’d be left with deebo Samuel or watkins if they suit up and goedert. The rest of my roster are backup rb. I have my top 2 rb handcuffed and own bell.

watkins is completely off the injury tag this time. he’s playing probably more than 80% of the time this week (and no pringle to steal anything anymore, was completely robbing d-rob and hardman (just last week on him, probably limited snaps since had corona for 2 weeks))

Morning DT,

Pick three

Diontae, moss, monty, christian kirk, rojo, gio bernard

I don’t feel great about Gio but figured i’d throw him in, see what you think.

Yeah that is about how I was leaning as well. I like Gio’s matchup but RBs getting a lot of dump offs by a backup QB seems to be a myth – never seems to work that way.

Thanks sir

Waller or Swift ROS in PPR league?

Word on the street is that Ertz could be back in W12 – but seeing how he was pre-injury, any concern that Goedert would be worse off? I feel like Goedert wouldn’t be impacted a whole lot considering the rapport that Wentz and Goedert have had

Thank you, I was going to ask the same question. I think ertz looked like he was washed up or at least not the same guy before his injury.

Yeah if anything, I’d think it’s Richard Rodgers who would see the decrease in snaps

dick rod goes to almost no snaps just like when ertz/goedert were both last healthy.

Do you think gaskin will resume the lead rb role for Miami? He will be designated to return today so that could be 3 weeks or less.

he was at practice a few things are currently assumed by most:
1. gaskin back next week not this week
2. gaskin gets majority of work when back

Reply to  Donkey Teeth

yeah i’d not want to start gaskin or ahmed on that first game from that being quite unknown. or if you own both might be forced INTO starting both if deep league or RB/flex problems.

Hey DT – Which trade do you prefer?

Gio/JD McKissic for Diontate
or
Gio/JD McKissic for Claypool + Latavius

Thanks & Happy Thanksgiving

Need some advice for this week:

.5 PPR

Flex (WR/RB/TE) pick one:

Gurley
Mike Evans
Brandin Cooks
Mostert (if he is activated)

Eli Man Penguin Boy

random season: 4-4
against season: 6-2

this week against: DET +3
this week random: with you again, as it’s done most times HOU -3

i just saw this apparently gaskin and ahmed went to the same college too, so MIA hoarded up the RB’s from where ever that was at super cheap prices.

golladay out, where does hall go with that in relation to renfrow or r.james (IF the other SF WR guys remain out, clearly this isn’t james if some of those are back, of course how many is important too) or gab davis (if j.brown it out). 20 teamer i have this to start:
QB: aaron
RB (2) d-mont, chubb, mattison, ozigbo, henderson (possible flex)
WR (3): mclaurin, perriman, renfrow, m.hall, r.james, gab davis
TE (1): goedert (easy him if ertz not back yet), hurst (had put in flex last week, could be any of him, henderson, or one of the WR’s this week)
IR (10): j-jax, golladay, hasty, shenault (gab davis or james is the drop when he’s back, but i want to SEE him do well first if possible)

the hall or not decision is the only one that has to be made pre-sunday by tomorrow, unless mclaurin doesn’t play, then another WR plays.

2. also for different league (PPR), marv jones today or parker? your above ranking obv were made with golladay playing. top 20 PPR flex guys at FP have parker 3 (44th) spots higher than marv (47th).

after updating it to ONLY top 20 PPR flex guys and ONLY today (so i can be SURE everybody’s removed golladay and moved marv up whatever amount) it’s 45/46. swift sounds def out, but of course tua is def in (or at least seemingly likely)

watching KJ, yeah that GM is str up stupid to have brought in AP this year. and patricia is even worse for playing AP over KJ. i get wanting to draft a great prospect in swift no issue on that (but still, don’t think this team here could’ve used i don’t know, some line members on either side?)
