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.

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!!

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?

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

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 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.

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!

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…

MY opponent has Jackson, Stewart, Shorts, Garcon, Graham (Is graham not playing now) and they all total less than his kicker, tucker, who has 5!!

Needless to say, Brady is saving him this week as I’m up 45-32 and as long as my guys don’t get hurt, it will be a fine week all around as I hopefully move into solo first (now tied with 4 guys in a 10team
