NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Detroit Lions

The latest reports coming out of Detroit are expressing caution… ever since the mayor signed a deal with the mega-corportaion Omni Consumer Products (OCP) to run and control the underfunded police force. Obviously, the city itself is on the verge of total collapse and anarchy, due to financial ruin and a high crime rate. To help combat this, OCP, in partnership with Hasbro, has created Megatron, a sentient robotic lifeform that has the ability to transform between his robot shape and that of a 29 year old, 6’5″, 236 lbs wide receiver, who, because of some sort of ankle circuitry malfunction, is questionable to fight against the ED-209 at OCP HQ to save the Detroit Police force, and also continue making Matt Stafford look like a good quarterback in this Sunday’s game against the Bills.

And that’s how you take Robocop, Transformers, the Detroit Lions, and Fantasy Football news, mix them together, and produce hot, edible nerd sauce for most meats and garnishes. Call me, ladies.

Week 5 Rankings have been updated for today’s games. You can check them out here.

Though expected to play, Calvin Johnson is still listed as questionable, and has been limited for the past two weeks from the aforementioned ankle injury. While he still might pull decoy duty like last Sunday, I would still find it hard to bench him if he lost both legs. In other news, if he did lose both legs, I’m pretty sure his vertical leap would still double mine. UPDATE: For what it’s worth, Calvin Johnson thinks he’s playing…

Sticking with Detroit, unlike the 60% population decline since the 40’s (band-wagoners!), they’ll be down two running backs with Joique Bell (concussion) and Theo Riddick (hamstring, sadness due to fantasy irrelevance) , Reggie Bush is expected to draw the majority of snaps. Joseph Fauria (ankle) will also be inactive, but I would classify him as inactive even if he was starting.

Arian Foster is probably, which means he’s still about 14 weeks away, along with Andre Johnson being questionable from an ankle injury. The Texans secondary is also lacking some depth today, as both backup cornerbacks are out for injury. Good for Tony Romo? Probably. Or he’ll just throw double the interceptions than he would have.

UPDATE: Ben Tate will be officially starting, probably putting Terrance West and Isiah Crowell on the back-burner, at least for this week.

Apparently, the crack-medical staff that the Chiefs used to rehabilitate Jamaal Charles exploded leg has brought us another miracle. Robert Griffin III is expected to be back in three weeks, before the bye, Oct. 27th vs. the Cowboys. Oooooo the timing…

Odell Beckham will be playing today, but might be limited.

  5. Dom B says:

    Out of these three players who should I have on my team as a WR: Erick Decker Marques Colston, or Kendall Wright. Thanks!

    • Dom B says:
      (link)

      Or do I stash Odell Beckham

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: Colston and Wright.

  6. Stanman says:
    (link)

    Fred Jackson, Steven Jackson, pierre Thomas, and Isaiah Crowell… Who do you start today??

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

  7. Dom B says:

      @Dom B: Chargers.

  8. Randy says:

    Who do you like most ROS at QB out of Palmer, Bridgewater, and Cousins? Also, can you rank the following in a standard league in terms of who has the greatest chance to emerge as a significant contributor and/or fantasy starter ROS? Rueben Randle, Allen Robinson, Jordan Matthews, Justin Hunter, and Dobson (if Pats finally start to use him). Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Randy: Right now, probably close between Bridgewater and Cousins. Palmer when he gets healthy, if he gets healthy. Nerve damage is serious.

      Robinson, Randle, Hunter, Matthews, Dobson.

  9. Wacha Wacha says:
    (link)

    Start Stacy or Ellington today? It seems like both guys have good matchups but I could also see both of their teams getting blown out…

  10. Benny says:
    (link)

    Help – I need to start two of these three in a half point PPR: Spiller, Michael Floyd, or Fred Jackson.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Benny: Floyd, Jackson.

  11. Brian says:
    (link)

    Would you start Ruben randle over Welker or cooks ? Feels like a great matchup for randle against Atlanta .

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Brian: Still going Welker here today.

  12. Pete says:
    (link)

    Start Gore over Ball in PPR as my RB2? I’ve looked at the rankings and think it’s a tough call.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Pete: I’d go Gore.

  13. Nick says:
    (link)

    I’m starting aj and Benjamin over Calvin in one league and starting him in my other two. Odds are aj or Calvin will catch 1 for 20 yds and hit the sidelines.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Or do the opposite. Hard to tell.

  14. Chris says:
    (link)

    Flex spot, non-ppr
    Terrance Williams
    Markus Wheaton
    Jeremy Hill

    Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: Williams, but they’re close enough to where I wouldn’t argue flipping them.

  15. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Wutup Jay… I know you have him ranked higher but I have Cam starting but I’m always worried about him cause he still may not be running and he hasn’t broke over 20 points yet this year. He’s projected 25 but what about Glennon vs NO?? He’s been killing it and proj 23 points. I’m a little scared though but help me on this one. Or Fitz vs DET.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Cam is the safe pick. For what it’s worth, there’s a huge chance it backfires, but everywhere I’m streaming, I’ve chosen Glennon.

  16. jmanfoschow says:
    (link)

    im in awe over that GIF.

    0.5 ppr. Do I start B.Quick over any of my starters?.. Roddy White, Keenan Allen, Malcom Floyd.

    THANKS

  17. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay,

    Who ya got? .5 ppr

    Gates or Paul at TE today?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: Gates, but it’s a coin flip.

  18. SludgeFeast says:
    (link)

    Hey all!

    Couple start/sits here, thanks!

    Cam Newton v. K. Cousins

    TY Hilton v. Pierre Garcon

    Thanks again and good luck!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @SludgeFeast: Newton and Garcon. But Hilton is right behind, wouldn’t argue it.

  19. Comatose says:
    (link)

    Drop Reaves for Beckham if I’m not using either today? Start Tate over Bradshaw in the flex?

    Much love

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: Sure and Bradshaw.

  20. Dom B says:
    (link)

      Jay says:

  21. Exactly says:
    (link)

    if Blue starts in place of Foster, who gets the nod, him or Tate?

  22. Crazy old guy babbling in a corner says:
    (link)

    Got Murray and already ( unfortunately) Asiata at RB; Bryant so far at WR…

    Who for WR2 this week, Vincent Jackson or does Brandon Marshall look good enough to start?

    Who for flex: Arian Foster look good for this week? Doug Martin or whoever I don’t start at WR2 are my other choices.

  23. jmanfoschow says:
    (link)

    PPR league. Jordan Cameron, Travis Kelce, Bishop Shankey. TE and FLEX spots.

    Bench Kelce?

  24. Allan says:
    (link)

    Jay in one league got to start 3 of 4 out of Jeffrey, Garcon, Wayne, and Michael Floyd. Leaning toward sitting Garcon because of matchup and last week. In other league it’s between Michael Floyd and Royal. Believe it or not I’m kinda leaning Royal here because Jets secondary. What do you think?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Allan: Jeffery, Wayne and Floyd. If you want to go risk and reward, I’d go Royal over Floyd. (I am on my teams, but that’s out of homerism… not exaclty science.)

  25. Peter says:
    (link)

    B. Pierce or L Blount or D. Reaves?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Peter: REAVES!!!!! There can only be one.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Peter: reaves.

  26. Poo Poo Platter says:
    (link)

    With Calvin hobbled and possibly playing decoy today how do you think Golden Tate will do in a PPR? Good enough to start over Steve Smith or Percy Harvin?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Poo Poo Platter: he’ll do well, but I’m starting the other guys still.

  27. Dave Head says:
    (link)

    .5 ppr already started Lacy, Nelson & GB defense
    Need 1 WR, 1RB, 1Flex from; B Marshall, E Sandrs, G Tate, M Flloyd, B Quick, A Bradshaw, B Tate
    QB E Manning vs N Foles
    K Moreno on bench, would you drop any of these to pick up J Bell?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Dave Head: I would have dropped knowshon for Joique bro. get on that

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dave Head: Marshall, Floyd, Bradshaw. I’d drop Manninh for him, start Foles.

  28. Chris says:
    (link)

    Do you make either of these trades in PPR?

    I have Andrew Luck so Philip Rivers is expendable since they have the same bye week. I’m weak at WR where my 3rd best WR is Bowe.

    I give: Rivers and Delanie Walker
    I get: Victor Cruz and Zac Stacy

    -or-

    I give: Rivers and Vernon Davis
    I get: Victor Cruz and Zac Stacy

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Chris: If you have Luck already, uhhhh yea. Dump Rivers now for that goldmine . Id rather keep Vern in healthy but I’m concerned. great move whichever tight end you send over. Cruz and Stacy is a Kings ransom, and you sir are a King of the highest order. #Kudos

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Chris: I’d do that trade in a heartbeat.

  31. Zandy says:

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: flip a coin. but got to go with TUcker simply based on the fact the Seahawks are all about touchdowns bruh

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: Tucker.

  32. Razzball junkie says:
    (link)

    PPR league:
    1) Start Kelce or Gates at TE?
    2) Pick two: Vjax, Crabtree or Watkins?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Razzball junkie: That Kelce is so hot right now.

      V-JAX should receive a huge amount of balls this week.

      • Razzball junkie says:
        (link)

        @Tehol Beddict: Thank you!!

  33. Symptom of the Universe says:
    (link)

    With news of Tavon Austin being active and juicy matchup would you FLEX him over Denard Robinson/Doug Baldwin/Benny Cunningham in deep 14-team PPR that starts 3 WR (starting Jordy/Welker/Allen Robinson) and 2 RB (starting Spiller and Reaves and Denard only available as WR in NFFC)?

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Symptom of the Universe: not a horrible Idea tho I like Baldwin to score this week against a pathetic Redskins secondary. But Tavon would be my number 2 off that list

  34. Al koholic says:
    (link)

    sankey or tatae at flex,paul or ebron at te,thanks

    • Tehol Beddict says:
      (link)

      @Al koholic: Ebron. Paul ain’t doing nothing against Seattle plus banged up . your picture arouses me greatly

      Jay says:

  38. TWhiskey says:

    Nonppr….Welker or Watkins?

    Welker or D Jackson?

    Thanks

  40. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    Dynasty, standard scoring, was offered Sproles for Cutler. That’s a no, but what should my counter be?

    A) Cutler and Edelman for Benjamin
    B) Cutler and a low-end flex for Mathews

    My RB: Forte Foster Tate Miller Ivory Hill Crowell
    My WR: Dez Allen Roddy Edelman

    Start 2RB 2WR 1Flex

    I’d be left with Ryan at QB

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d do A and B, probably B first. Love Benjamin.

  41. Dom B says:
    (link)

    So Jay Kendall Wright has 2 TDs should get him or Marques Colston

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: took him long enough. They are still around the same area for me.

  42. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Thanks Jay I’m gonna keep Wright cause Colston is behind Jimmy Graham and Brand an Cooks in the pecking order

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: I would agree. The QB situation does concern me a little.
