You know how when people post pictures of their kids on Facebook doing things like petting a dog or taking a bite of food and they say something like “my heart is full” or “my heart might explode”? Well that’s how I feel about the Big Ten playing football again. It brings a bit of normalcy back to my life in a year that’s been interesting to say the least. 

Speaking of interesting, what does Antonio Brown have going on with Tom Brady? Tom let Brown live with him when AB signed in New England and now he brings him to the Bucs.. Hmmm.. Maybe Giselle has a new appetite to worry about with Tom outside of him liking to kiss his kids for a little too long. I really wonder how many games Antonio Brown will actually play once his suspension is lifted. Is AB able to find a helmet that he’s willing to wear while simultaneously following Covid protocols? With Mike Evans and Chris Godwin both a bit gimpy, Tampa could use the help if AB has his stuff together. It’s probably worth a shot for Tampa at the price tag that they’re paying.

Elsewhere in the NFL, Covid is running rampant! Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley were then spotted out at a bar not social distancing. That’s going to be an expensive mistake for sure. Recently benched Dwayne Haskins also broke protocol with a hotel booking incident. It sounds like the Raiders will get 4 of their offensive lineman back from the Covid list as long as they test negative before game time. The Bills have one TE on their roster that doesn’t have Covid. The Bills could be playing all second string players and I’d still look into betting them as 10 point favorites against the Jets. Let’s get to the injury report!

    I see your wr rankings. Are you worried about evans this week? 2 targets last week and 1 catch for 10 yds was more a problem. I assume you start him over lamb deebo samuel based on the rankings. Last week they didn’t need ti throw much and evams still has the ankle issue. He hasn’t had many targets wjen godwin has played though. That is the concern now without AB even in the mix yet. Thanks

      I am worried about Evans. But at the same time, he’s still an elite WR so I didn’t feel right bumping his too low

  2. William Hung says:

    What about A.A.Ron Jones?

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      Also, with both Manny Sanders and Mike Thomas out, wouldn’t Jared Cook be in a smash spot today?

      • MB

        MB says:
        (link)

        Jared has been in these spots before this year and hasn’t done anything with it, but I gave him a nice bump. Aaron updated.

        • William Hung says:
          (link)

          If A.A.Ron is out, is Jamaal Williams or Justin Jackson in .5 PPR? I’m leaning towards Justin

          • MB

            MB says:

            Yeah Justin. Dillon might take the bulk of the work in GB

    My JTalyor/Burrow for his Conner?

      I think you’re giving up a lot of potential, I’d personally not do it

      • Chud says:
        (link)

        Interesting take but I trust your opinion.

        He countered w this:

        I give JTaylor/Burrow/ARob

        I get Kamara/LMurray.

        Would give me:

        RB: McCaffrey/MDavis/MSanders/ Kamara/ LMurray/LBell
        WR: Metcalf/Galladay/BCooks/DParker
        TE: Waller
        QB: RWilson/Tannehill/Tua

        Enjoy the day!

    Based on your ppr ranks, you like OBJ over Higgins or Cooks?

    OBJ lets me down every week!

      I get it, but Cincinnati is a tasty matchup. Believe me… I know the feeling

    QB for week 8 need someone for next week due to byes

    Cousins or Jimmy G?

    • Wide Right says:

      I’m already ruling out Mayfield, Foles. Tua and Lock also options?

      • MB

        MB says:
        (link)

        I can’t recommend Tua in his first start without noting there is risk, but Tua is what I would do.

        If risk averse, Jimmy G

    • Keith sandy says:

      With a Jones no at likely inactive, I have Adrian Peterson or aj Dillon to roll with. Any help greatly appreciated.

      • MB

        MB says:
        (link)

        Neither is a bad option, I am personally playing Dillon in a league. I think he has the highest upside

    PPR Flex: Higgins, Gio, or Antonio Gibson?

      Gibson

    Tim Patrick vs Shenault in PPR. Patrick’s gotta be a safer floor, no? I don’t know where Shenault is in the pecking order or how he is used in their offense, but Patrick is at worst #2 for targets on Denver.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Patrick is the safer floor and higher ceiling

  8. Bing says:

    You have Tonyan ranked higher than Aiyuk for half point PPR. Should I roll with Tonyan for my last FLEX spot? TEs make me nervous.

    • MB

      MB says:

      They’re really close, I wouldn’t mind Aiyuk.

    Edmonds or J Williams….PPR…now that AJones is active

    • William Hung says:

      Is Aaron Jones active? Can’t find confirmation from the current GTD status

        Sounding doubtful

      Aaron Jones is inactive. I’d go Jamaal williams

  12. Thesportsguy says:
    (link)

    Play each guy 1x league…have to play Gio and Williams now….therefore need to bench one of the guys I was going to play.

    Do you like
    1. Gurley this week and Hunt vs LV next week
    2. Hunt this week and at Car next week

    • Thesportsguy says:
      (link)

      Sorry number 2 is hunt this week and Gurley next week

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d play Gio today, save Williams

      I like Gurley this week, hunt next week

      • Thesportsguy says:
        (link)

        We actually go 3 RB…so Gio, willams and Gurley…save hunt. Or am I saving willams for another week to play hunt?

  13. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Sneaky RB plays are both Lindsay and Gordon – the weather in Denver is supposed to be incredibly rough, promoting a run heavy offense

    Hey MB! Going forward should I be worried about Jonnou Smith? He’s been used as run blocking today.
    I have jonnou smith, & Tonyan on my bench day with Goedart stashed on my IR.

    Would you do any of these:

    1.) deal Tonyan or jonnou to get Fant?

    2.) deal Tonyan to get Jimmy Graham?

    3.) deal Tonyan to get Evan Engram?

    4.) drop Tonyan & stream Richard Rogers week 8 he gets Dallas

    5.) give jonnou one more chance? He gets bengals week 8. Harrison Bryant had a good game vs Cincy

    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I don’t think Tonyan has any trade value. Jonnu is tough because there are more mouths to feed, I’d hold for now, see if he can get his groove back.
      Tonyan is droppable for Rodgers with you having Goedert on IR

    I think i’m gonna get McKinnon’d with Justin Jackson today

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      they’re using both of kelley and him, mckinnon meanwhile’s time is just turning into whichever of mostert, wilson or hasty is active.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        I’m just surprised with Jackson that he was involved early with 3 receptions but only 1 carry. i’m on Redzone but so far i’ve seen Kelley get the ball more than Jackson

        • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
          (link)

          it’s close including the targets. i’m watching it on some stream site (these work it’s here): https://sportsurge.net/#/groups/6. it’s better than the ones that were easily found on reddit (they shut those down, worried about lawsuits, including most convos that even indicate where to look this year) in previous seasons. no sub at all nor credit card or anything else; it’s nice.

          • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
            (link)

            only thing you gotta do to make most of them work is turn off the ad blocker. they don’t tend to lag either (something that happened quite often on the reddit ones in past seasons, probably just from too many people being in them)
