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 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:

New York Giants (+4.5) at Philadelphia Eagles

Forecast: I hope you all appreciate the gravity of what’s happening here—0-6 against the spread is no small feat. My new goal is to do something even the 2008 Detroit Lions and 2017 Cleveland Browns were unable to achieve, an 0-17 record. In the return of Thursday Night Football we’ll also find the return of Desean Jackson, who was out on sabbatical visiting Hitler’s grave. Jackson’s return will be short lived when he’s ejected for attacking Giants’ safety Nate Ebner. Carson Wentz will resume throwing to his witness protection receiving corps of Greg Ward, Travis Fulgam and Richard Rodgers aka Dick Rod. Up front the Eagles will suffer even more issues as both of their 6th string offensive tackles will leave early with injuries, giving way to emergency offensive linemen Jalen Hurts and Darren Sproles. All of that still won’t be enough to keep the the second worst football team in New York competitive on Thursday night.  Eagles 24, Giants 13

Wager: Eagles -4.5 (2 Units)

2020 Season: 0-6 (-9.35 Units) 

Anyway, here’s my fantasy football rankings for week 7 which will be frequently updated until Sunday kickoff:

    Would you add antonio brown and drop someone like Josh kelly who is a backup rb for me. I really can’t drop anyone else right now. I was lucky enough to have swift on my bench as a stash now looking like a starter. I also have henderson and l murray as reserve rb. I am carrying a 2nd def since balt is off this week. I will drop them next week but need them this week. I will be able to add another player next week. Thx

      Donkey Teeth says:

      I really don’t have high expectations for AB. If you need and upside WR more than RB depth then it’s a fine move but all things equal I’d want Kelley.

      No problem.

  2. Shopgurrrl says:

    Is it worth pursuing Lamb in a trade at this point? How big a hit do you see his value taking ROS? (12 teams, 0.5 PPR)

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I think he’s a worthwhile trade target. I consider him a solid WR2, not sure he takes much of a value hit considering how Dalton keyed in on him.

      • Shopgurrrl says:
        (link)

        Thanks, DT! I need to do a 2-for-1 trade to free up a roster slot and the Lamb owner seems to be the most likely to make a deal. It’s also a keeper league (one player this year, but I’m hoping to expand it to more for next), so Lamb feels like a solid add in that regard too. I’m fairly flush with second tier upside receivers, but my only option other than this trade is to drop someone for the roster slot, so I feel like I should at least try to squeeze some value out of the situation.

        I’m probably going to have to go RB/WR to make the deal. Would you mind ranking the following on my roster in terms of expendability:

        RBs:
        -Joshua Kelley
        -Devonta Freeman
        -Antonio Gibson
        -Le’Veon Bell
        (Also have Dalvin and Chubb on IR)

        WR:
        -OBJ
        -Diontae Johnson
        -Tee Higgins
        -Deebo Samuel
        -Emmanuel Sanders
        -Mike Williams
        (DK Metcalf, but obviously not expendable)

        (12-teams, 0.5 PPR)

  3. Hamtime says:
    (link)

    Seeing Mims pop up on a lot of rankings now. Is he worth stashing on IR in a deep 14m? Other options are ozigbo, michel

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      He’s just a flier, but so are the other two. I’d rank em Michel, Mims, Ozigbo.

  4. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Am I crazy for starting Justin Jackson over Cooper Kupp in my FLEX? I just feel like Jackson’s floor is going to be higher vs. JAX, and he should snag a TD as well. While Goff is going to be real shaky versus a good Bears secondary – I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a repeat of last week and get like 2 receptions for 13 yards out of Kupp.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      Nah it’s not crazy by any means. If it’s full PPR I’d still lean towards Kupp but any other format I give the edge to Jackson. Either way, it’s not a crazy move.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        So here’s my W7 lineup and I’m strongly considering dropping James White for JK Dobbins ahead of the post bye week rush (.5 PPR):
        QB- Kyler Murray
        RB- Boston Scott, David Montgomery
        WR- Godwin, Tee Higgins
        TE- Hurst
        FLEX- Justin Jackson
        Bench:
        RB- Lindsay, White, Edmonds
        WR- Kupp, Ruggs
        TE- Goedert
        IR- Reagor

        Would you make that move? It’s tough for me cause I’m a huge James White fan – love his .5 PPR contributions. But out of my RBs, he has the lowest ceiling right now

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          I’d want Dobbins over White

  5. helppleasethanks says:
    (link)

    forced to start both Freeman and Scott tonight (Damien harris or dobbins my other options)

    for my flex: pick one of: DJ chark/Fulgham/Mike williams

    also, due to my ominous rb situation: would you ship away: DJ Chark, Fulgham, and Dobbins for the denver rb’s.

    it is a keeper league and I drafted dobbins for the future at $7, however, not sure what the future holds anymore.

    thanks.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I’d start Williams at flex. That sounds like a good deal for your team. I still like Dobbins a lot as a keeper and to a certain extent rest of season but not sure exactly how your keepers work or what your other options are.

  6. Milkman says:
    (link)

    12 team full PPR

    Tonyan Dnp yesterday and my only other option would be Richard Rogers tonight. Opponent has Wentz. Would you consider RR tonight knowing eagles run lots of 2TE sets and most stars are injured?

    Thanks

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      He’s worth consideration but I’d prefer Tonyan

      • Milkman says:
        (link)

        I 100% agree, Hoping he gets a limited today and then I’d feel better. I just don’t want to be left with a goose egg in TE since nobody would be remaining To grab. Uggghhhhhh

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:

    Ekeler and Sanders have gone down for my team, so hurting at RB.

    on WR, need to chosee 2 of 3: kupp, obj, kirk.

    Hey donkey ! Full ppr / 10 team

    Just seeing what you think of my team at the mid way point . Currently in 4-2

    QB is Brady

    RBs are Dalvin Cook, CEH, James Robinson, Ingram, Dobbins, mattison, Chase Edmonds, gio bernard

    My WRs are Hopkins, Ridley, mclaurin, Fuller, Edelman, Travis Fulgham, Marcus Johnson

    My TEs are Jonnu smith , Tonyan & ive had Goedart stashed in my IR slot

    D & k I stream & we play IDP one defensive player slot I stream there too.
    My D this week is KC I’ll hold until after next week as they get Jets week 8. Streaming Ryan succop this week & next week . Next week my opponent has mike Evans & gronk , I have Brady & TB kicker to try to offset the points

    Based on this wound you look to offer any of these deals or no?

    1.) deal mclaurin to get Godwin? Godwin owner stacked at WR or mclaurin for someone else? He has Julio , thielen, diggs, ruggs , Lamb , Justin Jefferson

    2.) deal my jonnou smith + gio bernard + Fulgham to the mixon owner for his Cooper Kupp + Jimmy Graham?

    3.) deal gio bernard to mixon owner for Jimmy Graham?

    4.) deal gio bernard for AJ green?

    5.) deal my Calvin Ridley to get Aaron Jones? Aaron Jones owner is still left with a stud RB he still has kamara . He needs a boost at WR, his WR1 is OBJ

    6.) deal my chase Edmonds + Fulgham + KC d to get bucs D(they get raiders, giants & panthers next 3 weeks) + slayton ? Am I asking too much? Or KC D + Edmonds for bucs d?

    7.) deal my Edelman to get Cooper Kupp?

    Or at this point stand pat for any deal? If I do flip Ridley for Aaron Jones would you deal James Robinson for one of Justin Jefferson, diggs, Godwin?

    —-

    If no deals I may drop gio here are available RBs it’s not good lol
    Available RBs: Brian hill, hasty, Jeff Wilson , burkhead, Anthony McFarland, Corey clement

    Or instead of dropping gio for a RB here are available QBs /D’s to stash

    Justin Herbert, Tua, wentz, Stafford, Carr, tannehill

    D’s: Seattle weeks 13-16 they have giants , jets ,@ Washington, then rams

    Brady’s bye isn’t until week 13 so I have a ways to go lol

    Thanks man!

      Hey Water Boy,

      Team looks great.

      1. If you can get Godwin for McLauring then absolutely I would.
      2. Yes, would want the Cooper side there as well.
      3. Meh
      4. Meh
      5. Sure if he’ll do it…doesn’t seem like enough for Jones imo.
      6. Seems fine
      7. Kupp but I’d be shocked if the Kupp owner agrees
      If you could get Diggs or Godwin for Robinson then I would.

      I like Hasty over Gio.

      No problem!

      FINALLY, while MT has another setback, at least THIS TIME (and it’s the first time that we’ve had ANY reason to think he might/likely will play that his game is EARLY sunday, not night sun, not mon or tues) we got time to deal with it. also OAK/TB is probably like 70/30 as of right now to happen

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

        even if it does play, i’d be VERY worried about playing OAK players, their oline won’t be able to play in it, but read this oddly written blurb about it:
        https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player/51605/johnathan-abram

        here’s the thing though, if they are forced away from the team for 5 days, that MEANS they for sure can’t play week 7. t.brown popped a corona, the others practiced right next to him (and from reports OAK doesn’t use masks at least no small part of the time at all). whoever wrote that can’t count that thurs-sun isn’t 5 days. it would have to get moved to at earliest tues night; thurs morning to tues morning is 5 days.

        • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
          (link)

          we just saw what TB did to GB’s oline (the mostly healthy one). a completely inactive OAK (LV) oline is in serious trouble if that game happens.

          • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
            (link)

            from the r.hudson C blurb it appears the t.brown test positive was wed morning, but even with that 5 days would be mon morning, so for LV to have their oline (any of the ones that were around t.brown, assuming all the starters at least) they’d have to play mon or tues.

      akins still not practicing. as soon as it looks like akins is playing i’d just drop fells for akins, akins this year and last got the snaps when they both play. fri’s practice looms large.

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        it’s just NOW (not 10ish days ago, when it should’ve been) reported that akin’s ankle is a high ankle, he ain’t back for a bit (including this week easily). if HOU had any clue what was going on he should’ve been IR’d at least nearly 2 weeks ago from this. and it also appears he most certainly got this at practice, as he missed the first game he missed with the concussion,the ankle showed up the week after (unless HOU just str up lied about the ankle and it happened same game as the concussion, certainly possible).

    is CIN esp good at TE’s? with shepard back i’m quite thinking hooper @ CIN is better than engram tonight. d.jones has been so horrible this year that engram hasn’t done anything (in past year’s it was just engram’s injuries, he’d produce when healthy, even with d.jones)

    • For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:

      PHI is esp bad (23rd at FO) at pass D, vs CIN’s 16th vs pass D, it’s a shame they stopped (at least for free) showing the vs specific kinds of pass catchers, like they used to, as that was very useful.

        yeah gone with engram all year, consensus rankers are easily higher on engram than hooper every week so far. shepard back though i’d have thought would’ve influenced people, seemingly hasn’t much yet (pretty good sized gap on these 2 this week pretty much for everybody)

        • For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
          (link)

          engram already had a decent game, would’ve been entirely great if he doesn’t drop that one with just over 2 left. nice to see him still used even with shepard back.

    -Chase Edmonds vs SEA

    I am starting Justin Jackson as my RB2, but figure between him and Kelley I’m guaranteed at least one score. Patrick is interesting, but DEN is getting healthy again. Juju sucks but has a great matchup, and the rest don’t seem worth it
