Sooo, not exactly what I would wear during hunting season…

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the AFC East 1st place team– The Buffalo Bills. Sure it’s only week 2, and they are in a three-way tie with the Dolphins and Jets, but let’s get real. The Jets will soon do what the Jets do best, and that’s not stay in first place. And the Dolphins, I’m sure, will find interesting ways to stay mediocre. Then again, both those things can be said about the Bills, but let’s enjoy it while it lasts. After all, some day in the future, someone will remember that one week where the Bills were Super Bowl bound and on pace for a 16-0 season. But probably not.

Week 2 Rankings have been updated for today’s games. You can check them out here.

As of this writing, there has yet to be any discernible progress on Josh Gordon Watch, 2014.

On Friday night, the NFLPA announced that its board of player representatives had approved a new, comprehensive drug policy.  On Saturday morning, both the league and the union have said that the new drug policy isn’t finalized yet.

Interesting is right!

“We hope to have final agreements, including effective date for players with adjusted discipline, very soon,” the union (NFLPA) said. As a practical matter, it means that suspension of players like Broncos receiver Wes Welker won’t be lifted until the agreements are written up and signed.

I updated on this issue yesterday, but it would appear that Gordon will be facing a reduced suspension of 10 games, which, theoretically, should have technically (any other ‘t’ words that can muddy the waters I can use?) started last week. Stay tuned I guess?

Hey, Chicago Bears fans and owners of Alshon Jeffery, I should note I’m just the messenger here, okay? So don’t do what I think you’re going to do, and, you know, just flip out, okay? OKAY? Hold it together man.

Be sure to take this with a grain of salt, as the wording here leaves much to be desired. He “believes” is a very speculative. Like, I “believe” that Oliva Wilde is going to touch me in my bathing suit areas, but, in all honestly, this is not a for sure thing. More like a 50-50 type of scenario. 20-80. Okay. 0-100. 

Update: 

wontplay2

It also appears that Jordan Cameron is not expected to play, however Andre Ellington is, despite being listed as questionable with a foot injury. Carson Palmer is going to play, but DeAngelo Williams looks like a no-go. Yawn.

Doug Martin is out, Bobby Rainey is your starter. HURRY!

 

Early Games

Dolphins vs. BillsBills go for a 2-0 start, breaking football forever.

Jaguars vs. Washington Football Team – Can RG0-1 become RG1-1, or RG0-2? They have a decent match-up here, so we’ll see.

Cowboys vs. Titans – The Cowboys are always good for some herp ‘a’ derp, and I can’t quite decide if it’s more a Romo thing or a Jason Garrett thing. So let’s just say it’s both.

Cardinals vs. Giants – Hey, Eli, allow me to introduce you to this fine gentleman. His name is Victor Cruz. Oh, no, you don’t have to thank me. Why don’t you guys spend some time together…

Patriots vs. Vikings – Are we certain that Bill Belichick didn’t leak the Adrian Peterson’s indictment story?

Saints vs. Browns – Can we just call this the “Find any excuse to show Johnny Clipboard on the sideline” game?

Falcons vs. Bengals – If this were Hard Knocks, Bengals certainly would have the edge here.

Lions vs. Panthers – I actually want to see this match-up… if it were really the animals. Could use some more shark, and quite possibly dragons, but then that might be too awesome.

    now, with 1 week of data, and d. williams hurt, who out of him/miller/ridley/cunningham? PPR. not as starter, as RB 5.

    Don’t hate on my Dolphins please, thank you!!!

    Haha

      @Tarman Got Him: I wouldn’t call it hate… I would call it meh? I love Clay, and think Tannehill could show us something this season…

        @Jay: Just messing my friend. What a miserable start to the fantasy football season.

          @Tarman Got Him: Of course. And agreed, it’s been a weird season so far, and we’re just starting.

  3. SMLV1 says:
    (link)

    Last time I checked your ranks and asked you Wright, Wayne or Cruz as my WR3. You told me Wright which you had ranked the highest. Now I see you have Wayne over Wright and Cruz. We starting Wayne now?

    Also, I really want to start Stacy (I also have a crush on him :p) but I feel like its too risky. I’m gonna go with Moreno.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @SMLV1: Yeah, I re-watched the Titans game and I have the feeling the targets are going to be spread out again today, so I’m giving the edge to Wayne a bit here.

      I can’t argue on Moreno. I still like Stacy this week, but I’m not 100% on it. Maybe 99%.

  4. Guidedbyvoices says:
    (link)

    Jay….PPR flex….

    F Jackson,Sproles,P. Thomas or Wayne?

    Thanks.

  5. Cheese says:
    (link)

    I think that early set of games is going to produce a lot of close games… A lot of interesting match ups

    0.5PPR
    I give Montee Ball and Larry Fitzgerald
    I get Matt Forte and Jeremy Maclin

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @Cheese: hey wagstaff. wonder if you were one of the ones Jaywrong was talking about in BAL reenacting the Wire with knives.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cheese: I want the Forte/Maclin side, and it’s not close.

    first, how is nobody else yet Flash Gordon on Twitter? 2nd, that’s exactly what i would’ve posted if i was gordon right now.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @goodfold2: Hmm… Interesting…

    • Ryan says:
      (link)

      @goodfold2: I believe that is just the handle(not sure if that is the technical term). That can be changed to whatever, you are just recognized by the username. So I’m pretty sure someone already has “@flashgordon”. There can be a million “Flash Gordon” handles though.

      If what I typed makes sense at all…hahaha.

      • goodfold2 says:
        (link)

        @Ryan: makes sense to me.

  7. Tim says:

    Flex in a non-PPR

    I have Doug Martin penciled in. If he doesn’t go (or is just not worth the risk this week), I got Hilton, Lamar Miller (early), Jennings (early), Bradshaw, and James Jones.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Tim: Hilton or Jennings. I’m going Hilton.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Tim: Martin out.

  8. Bills Fan Will says:
    (link)

    0.5 PPR:
    Fred Jackson vs MIA’s 2nd string LBs
    OR
    Kendall Wright vs DAL

  9. The G says:
    (link)

    Jay,

    Great work thus far….i love all the different ways the Razzball Team covers fantasy fb! Keep up the awesomeness.

    Quick question:

    12team PPR league
    Who to start in Alshon Jeffreys spot( assuming you’d bench him)?

    Deandre Hopkins
    Terrence Williams
    Justin Hunter

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The G: Thanks! Probably Hunter.

  10. E says:
    (link)

    Would you play RG3 or jake locker today?

    Should I wait to hear the news on brandon Marshall or start Toby gerhart? If Marshall can’t play tonight I can slide Bradshaw in for his Monday night game (ppr league if that matters).

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @E: Locker.

  11. ilikeyourstyle says:
    (link)

    need a TE replacement for J. Cameron. Delanie walker, antonio gates, or the NYG tight end?

  12. Chris says:
    (link)

    In PPR:

    Delanie Walker or Vernon Davis?
    Mark Ingram or Dwayne Bowe at flex?
    Mike Wallace or Golden Tate?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Davis, Ingram, Tate.

  13. KK says:
    (link)

    Jay, currently have Michael
    Floyd going, if palmed doesn’t play how much does this hurt him? Play Kendall wright instead? Think he kills Dallas?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @KK: I still like Floyd, but less so, yes. Go Wright.

  14. John Rambo Jr says:
    (link)

    Streaming Defenses…NE vs MN w/out AP or NO vs CLE w/out Tate

    Different league…HOU vs OAK or 49ers vs CHI w/out Jeffery’s?

    Thanks in advance
    JRJ

  15. John Rambo Jr says:
    (link)

    Sorry, 1 more question
    Crabtree or Wright?

  16. Rags says:
    (link)

    Standard scoring. I’m having a crisis of confidence with my decisions:

    Starting Ball/Gerhart in RB with Moreno in flex.
    Starting VJax, Michael Floyd and Harvin at WR.

    Leaving R. Bush and J. Hunter, D. Hopkins on the bench. Everyone loves Hunter’s matchup vs DAL this week, but I have to sit him for Gerhart (against WAS) and Moreno (vs BUF), right?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Rags: I’m fine sitting Gerhert there.

      • Rags says:
        (link)

        @Jay: With Carson Palmer out, would you put in Hunter and take out Michael Floyd instead of Gerhart?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Rags: nope. Not high on Gerhert.

  17. Lemmingness says:
    (link)

    Standard scoring, is a flex spot start between K.Wright and Olsen a toss-up for you still? You had them back-to-back in your flex rankings

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Lemmingness: I think it’s still Olsen.

  18. Ciwa says:
    (link)

    Hi!
    If Brandon Marshall will not play I have to choose 2 of this 4 for a WR and a FLEX options. My personal rankings is:Wayne-Santonio Holmes-Greg Jennings-B.Rainey. What do u think?

    • Ciwa says:
      (link)

      @Ciwa:
      Ah,standard scoring

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ciwa: I agree.

  19. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Have D. Freeman as S-Jax insurance (who himself is a bench RB for me), but ATL looks kinda like a committee. Hold Freeman, or drop to take a flier on L. Murray? MJD was also dropped so I could grab him to add to my stable of old-ass RBs. Or Hurns, who apparently nobody in my league believes in, but not sure I need another WR with Dez Roddy Benjamin Boykin. 0.5 ppr, start 2 RB, 2WR, 1 W/R/T.

  20. The Thumb says:
    (link)

    Have to sit one: Ellington, Gerhart, Cooks

    Thanks!

  21. Sou Girls 1 Cup says:
    (link)

    Soooo, anymore thoughts on the following : You have any concerns about Allen v Sherman this weekend? I have him plugged in at my flex spot but am really considering sitting him for Darren Sproles/Hyde/Hartline or Fred Jackson.

    Also see you have Romo higher than Locker this week, that still stand or are you jumper on the locker wagon this week over a woeful Romo?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Sou Girls 1 Cup: slighty, see sticking with him. And I have Locker ahead.

  22. J-MoneyIV says:

    Morning Jay, two flex questions for you.

    1) 16 team .5 PPR, bonus points for rushing or receiving yards > 100 yards

    Need to start 1 in my flex with AP out
    Decker @ GB
    Bradshaw v PHI
    Wayne v PHI

    2) 12 Team .5 PPR,

    Start Marshall at my flex and pray he plays (Holmes is already picked up ) or start one of the following who all play much earlier:
    Randle v ARI
    McCluster v Dal
    L Miller @ Buf
    Woods v Mia

  23. ilikeyourstyle says:

    knowshon or doug martin in the flex?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Moreno now, Martin just scratched.

  24. Gay 4 Jay says:
    (link)

    I need to drop a player to add a DEF this morning…Ivory or B. Tate?
    I’m leaning toward Tate, as I’m concerned that by the time he returns in Week 5 that he will be locked into a RBBC with West. Also, this league is fairly shallow, so it will be hard to hold onto an injured player that long.

  25. eltoo says:

    PPR league

    Flex spot, start 1: Bradshaw, Cooper, hardline, burns.

    PPR league

    Trade pending in my league : Adrian Peterson for Knowshon and Bernard Pierce. Guy receiving AP said he agreed by mistake. As commissioner, should I intervene or let it ride?

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @ToiletTorpedoes: it’s gonna be ugly either way, but maybe you could do it by when it was agreed to (assuming you can see the time of that). if before the peterson news, then make it stick. otherwise let the guy out.

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @The Harrow: Right, I mean, context matters. But it’s up to the owner to stay informed, not the league to clean up the mess. It opens up a dangerous door.
