p243065308-4

While I would have normally highlighted other potentially entertaining match-ups like the Bengals vs. Colts or the Panthers vs. Packers, or maybe even the Browns vs. Jaguars (HAHA, just kidding) in the lede, the Percy Harvin trade heard around the world is still fresh on our minds, still pungent from the smell of crazy. Reports (the Seattle PR machine was revved up and ready to go apparently) have already surfaced about how disgruntled Harvin was, including mentions of past conflicts with Russell Wilson and getting into fistacuffs with Golden Tate. (But when it comes to punching Golden Tate, my question is: who wouldn’t?) Despite all the headlines, the game still looks to be a safe win, as there usually isn’t anything to fear from an 1-4 team that’s being led by one best quarterbacks in the NFL when measuring profound mediocrity. However, Harvin is one less offensive weapon the Seahawks will have coming off a fascinating loss to the Cowboys, and if Seattle finds some way to lose this one, the potential schadenfreude would be orgasmic. It should be noted, while I would consider the chances of losing to the hapless Rams about the same as Olivia Wilde touching my bathing suit areas, that St. Louis has historically done well against Seattle when at home, and generally played pretty well against the 49ers last week. It’s enough to where I’m still getting my popcorn (and alcoholic beverages) ready for this one.

Week 7 Rankings have been updated for today’s games for all your roster needs. You can check them out here.

 

Jimmy Graham traveled with the team to Detroit, just in case you wanted to know his travel plans. Stalker. Update: Saints TE Jimmy Graham is expected to play, though not expected to start due to shoulder injury. Will test injury in pregame.”

Calvin Johnson is testing his ankle at this moment and will be a game time decision.

Kelvin Benjamin looks like a start, and wow, that’s about it for possible roster changes at this point in time.

That’s it? Three players to talk about? What’s next? Stigmata?

    in dynasty 14 teamer I was “gifted” (so i thought preseason), with taking over this team with both KC and CAR defenses. Now CAR is 24th ranked D on a per game basis, and ranked 28th in real life, with an ugly as shit this week matchup. Only unowned halfway decent D’s by this point are
    MIA/DAL/TEN/NYJ. This week that means either DAL or TEN by rankings, but MIA for season is best, and ranked 4th in real life for D. http://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamdef
    that’s better than SEA. I’m guessing i should just grab DAL for this week and MIA later? I asked this before back in like week 3, but then just thought it was a rough spot for CAR, and now we’re 6 weeks into that.

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: I thought the same with Carolina. But I’m not opposed to just riding with Miami from this point on. They are ranked low this week, but Chicago has been known to not show up.

    Hi Jay ,
    I need to drop either Cunningham or Chris Johnson to pick up a QB for next week assuming Doug Baldwin is automatic play in PPR league now. Who would you drop ?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Blint: Cunningham.

  3. dtrtliedowns says:

    Now that Benjamin is cleared, Benjamin, gore, rueben randle at flex in standard league? (already have romo Bryant and Donnell / Witten which is question 2, Donnell or witten? Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @dtrtliedowns: Gore for the safe pick (it’s a coin flip with Benjamin) and Donnell.

  4. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    Have Reed in at TE. Also have Graham. Do I bench Reed or just let Graham do his thing on my bench since he may just be a decoy? 0.5 PPR

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: i have the same decision and am going reed

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: Tough to say. I think it’s game time, what I’m reading right now is that Graham is testing out his ankle. Safe play is Reed.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Jay: he’s active… Damn, what to do??

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: ugh. Probably have to go Graham.

          • Montezuma's Revenge... right now says:
            (link)

            @Jay: should be 30 only snaps at most.

              • Wilsonian says:
                (link)

                @Jay: gotta play the big gun. I’m rolling with Graham. He may throw up a goose egg, but I can’t bench him if he’s playing.

  5. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Sup Jay… 2 questions, 1 – Louis Murphy Jr. in my league scored 18, 12 & 20 points the past 3 weeks in my league. Do you see any consistency or something big coming from him to hold on my bench?? 2 – My TE has a bye week next week and I wanted to grab a guy now before in case he blows up this week. Do you like Clay Harbor?? Thanks Man!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: I’m holding just in case, sure. Meh, Harbor is okay, but it’s hard to like anything on that team.

  6. Beats by Ray says:
    (link)

    JAY need some help my dude… Need a Flex play (gotta make it count) between K. Benjamin, Sankey, Andre Holmes or Brandon Cooks (depends on Graham status). Thanks bruh

  7. Benny says:
    (link)

    Stafford or Wilson this week? I see a lot of people ranking Wilson ahead of stafford but I feel like they’re going to run the ball even more than normal. Coming off a loss and trading harvin screams they’re going to run it all day. What are your thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Benny: I have Wilson ranked a bit higher, but I could see Stafford having a huge day. If you are going for ceiling, go Stafford.

  8. Oppo Taco says:
    (link)

    Must win week, I’m starting Brendan Oliver and my opponent is starting Antonio gates. My question is should I start rivers vsKC or [email protected]
    I’m leanining cam for shootout potential, also because I don’t want to be too dependant on the charger offense, even though it’s been phenomenal. Thanks

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: Rivers. It’s always a shoot out when we play KC.

  9. Oppo Taco says:
    (link)

    And Jared cook vsSEA or Graham @DET. .5PPR. graham looks like he’s only going to play on red zone packages

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oppo Taco: He’s testing out his ankle at the moment. Leaning Cook for safety.

      • Chicken Dinner says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Thought it was his shoulder?

        • Jay

          Jay says:

          @Chicken Dinner: sorry, i was meshing it with Megatron. Pre coffee time.

  10. Ron says:
    (link)

    .5PPR for today – Please pick 3 out of Cooks, Crabtree, Cameron and Colston.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Ron: I’d leave Crabtree out of that mix.

  11. Hometown Hero says:
    (link)

    Need help with who to start at my flex, standard scoring. Bush, k Allen or D Adams. Based on what most people say, I should start Bush but I don’t trust him much. Who would you go with?

  12. Principal Blackman says:
    (link)

    I may only be 2-4 in Take on the Jay Wrong#2, but I only have ten less total points than your 6-0 team. I’m looking forward to trying to dethrone you this week, Jay.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Principal Blackman: Good luck! That team has actually, I’m not afraid to admit, been quite lucky. Skill had very little to with it.

  13. Dom B says:

    With me having Eddie Lacy Andre Ellington Fred Jackson and Doug martin was Ben Tate for Kelvin Benjamin me sending Ben a bad trade needed WR

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Dom B: No, I like Benjamin, and I think you’ll be fine.

  14. Dom B says:

    Is Deliane Walker still a TE 1 because I traded Jordan Cameron for Percy Harvin

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I think so, yeah.

  15. Chicken Dinner says:
    (link)

    McKinnon or PT?

    PPR

    McKinnon’s at BUF and can’t pass protect.

    PT’s been sick, DET’s tough and Graham may play.

    Tough.

    Happy Football Sunday Jay!

    Great work as usual…i always look forward to ur game recaps. With the aid of ur rankings and some gut-feeling gambles in my 12team PPR league, i have Luck, Shady, Leveon Bell, Alshon, Maclin, Olsen and I scooped up Steve Smith Sr week 1.

    With Shady on bye, who do u start in his place: CJ Spiller or Ronnie Hillman?

    I have Sanu filling in for Maclin.

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @The G: thanks! Going Hillman here.

    Kelce or Walker today?

    My thoughts are rolling with Walker even with Locker out again…

    best,
    Ryan

    • ryanoger says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger:

      Is it safe to drop Stacy or Khiry to stash Juwan or hold? And is it crazy to talk to start talking about stashing Ray Rice if he returns?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @ryanoger: hold. And Rice is trash, both as a human and player. I’d pass.

      @ryanoger: Walkerd fine, sure.

  18. studPL says:

  24. Allan says:
    (link)

    Jay got several lineup questions I need help with. First I’ve got Kelce and Graham so who do I start now that Graham is active? I suppose I could use one as my flex but I’ve got Joique Bell there now. Also we start 3 WR who do I start out of Michael Floyd, Randle, Garcon, Wayne, and Jeffrey? Thanks.

    • Allan says:
      (link)

      Sorry half point ppr if that helps.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Allan: Graham, and sit Randle and Garcon.

  25. Bobby says:
    (link)

    Hey jay, I’m in a 10 team .20 ppr league for a depth move (I haven’t been starting Hawkins), drop Hawkins for either jermaine kearse, Ricardo lockette , Markus Wheaton or robert woods?

    Next, I don’t own Zac stacy but I added Cunningham for depth this week , not sure if you’d recommend to hang onto benny or drop him for any of these ; alfred blue, tre Mason, Robert Turbin, or joseph Randle.

    Lastly, defense for this week, I’ve been streaming D’s & currently have Texans who will be on the road in pitt not sure if you like that matchup over these available D’s:

    Bears D vs Tannehill & ‘fins

    Cowboys D vs eli & g men

    Vikings D on the road @ buffalo vs kyle Orton & co.

    Thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:

    Hey Jay, 10 team non-prr, is Baldwin worth a bench spot over Beckham, Matthews, Ingram, Holmes, McKinnon? I just realized my bench is rather strong so cant see me making roster changes unless an injury or a bad bye week occurs…

      RB- Murray, Matthews, A Williams, R Jennings, McKinnon, Ingram
      TE- Witten
      D-Lions
      K-Dawson

      Which one to drop, Holmes!? No waivers, I have to move quick!

    in PPR league with .1 pt per return yard am i better off with cunningham and mason or stacy and mason? i forgot that cunningham is doing kicks, he just got a 75 yarder.
