x1-1

In an epic battle between crab cakes (YAY) and skyline chili (BOO), the Ravens will bring their AFC North leading record of 5-2 to Cincinnati, a city that I’ve heard has paved roads, unlike Cleveland. Interestingly enough, the teams have met already this season, but it’s okay if you forgot, as these teams seem completely different from their previous match-up when the Bengals won 23-16. Said Bengals went on to win their next two, and with a 3-0 start, looked like one of the best teams in the NFL. But I guess getting tired of looking competent, the Bengals went to their safety zone, aka, they went Bungles the next three games by losing two, and tying in one. Though, I’m pretty sure a tie is a loss, seeing as it’s described as kissing your sister. Sorry, I’m not from Alabama, that’s a complete loss for me. Speaking of a loss, I have no words to describe the eliteness being shown by Joe Flacco. It’s almost as if his eliteness went on a cocaine binge and then he decided to make things interesting by adding mescaline as a side garnish. Of course, having a resurgent Steve Smith on a successful 2014 baby-punching tour certainly helps as well. Will the Bungles Bungle? I can’t wait to find out. Because Ginger.

Week 8 Rankings have been updated for today’s games, for all your roster needs. You can check them out here.

A.J. Green is not expected to play. Probably getting back at me for enjoying life this week. Thanks man.

Shonn Greene was arrested. The California Penal system’s fantasy team is pretty much stacked this year.

Reggie Bush is inactive, which is a shame, because we all need more Bush, amiright folks?

    Any idea when we’re going to hear about whether Calvin Johnson is going to play?

    Freakin’ 9:30am game. What the hell, NFL.

    (Honestly, at this point I care much less about CJ and more about Golden Tate. Go get ’em, tiger!)

      @The Theory: Yeah, looks like he was a true gametime decision…

    • goodfold2 says:
      (link)

      @The Theory: would you really have wanted to play him if he did, last time he was decoy, and reinjured himself,since DET appeared to tell the truth about him having an actual high ankle sprain.

  2. Jason Morgan says:

    Storm Johnson, Travaris Cadet or Charles Sims rest of season. PPR league.

  3. Frank White says:

    Crockett Gillmore or Charles Clay??

    • Frank White says:
      (link)

      Or Clay Harbor?

    What you think of benching Brandon Marshall this week. He’s only had a handful of truly great performances, and is playing a touch matchup.

    My option in his place is Doug Baldwin. I know you have him lower in your rankings, but considering the breakout last week, the great matchup, etc…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Crazy old guy babbling in a corner: The logic is good, but if it were me, I’m always stubborn on going with your studs. I’m sticking with Marshall, but I don’t think it’s crazy if you go Baldwin.

    it certainly appears that ATL doesn’t need home field advantage, just for the other team not to have home field advantage either. and freeman isn’t being brought in much, S-Jax actually getting most carries i’ve ever seen in 1st Q this year. Probably should have dropped DET D this week, but Ryan had been so horrible for 3 str weeks. I’m betting very few dropped DET D for this game.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Yeah, I actually picked up the DET defense where I could. It’s pretty much an away game for all teams involved, and I still don’t get the Steven Jackson thing. It vexes me.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: the one spot i have DET in doesn’t have other supposedly big names to grab, so i’ve stuck with them for around a month. actually ARI is out there, and the extremely hot IND as well. IND’s actually moved into a top 10 overall in real life stats D.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Yeah, their defense has been underrated all year long, and under the radar. No big play potential there, but a solid unit.

    Good or bad trade I send matt Asiata for mike Evans thought maybe v hac gets traded

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      I like that trade for you.

  10. Randy says:

    In my 12-team standard league, my RBs are Forte, Foster, Tate, Ingram, Mason, Jennings, and T-Rich. WRs are Dez, Andre J, Wallace, Rueben, and Hunter. TE is Kelce. First, I’m starting Forte, Foster, Dez for sure…who makes the best WR2 and flex? Second, would you drop T-Rich for Charles Sims a potential bench stash? Lastly, would you drop anyone for Kyle Rudolph in a week or so if Kelce doesn’t get more consistent? Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Randy: Go Wallace and Tate there.

  11. ryanoger says:

    Jay

    You think I should drop someone on my bench to pick up Mike Evans or hold? Also thinking week 9 already with the Bills on a bye should I pick up Philly @HOU? Or wait and see how they fair this week?

    Rodgers, Jordy, Keenan, Demarco, Bradshaw, Delanie, Tre Mason

    bench
    Kelce, Terrence, Percy, Montee, The Nard Dog, Tannehill (for next week), IR Charles Sims

    Parkey
    BIlls

    thanks again

      @ryanoger: dropping montee for him is okay.

      • ryanoger says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        even if it’s a keeper league? you think montee is donezo?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @ryanoger: Eh. I don’t think he’s going to help this season if that clarifies it. I’d try to keep him for a keeper league, but Mike Evans is an intriguing keep himself.

    Which 2 of the following 3 do I play at WR: Sanu, Cooks or Williams?

    Thanks.

    Now with the news Harvin getting 6-8 touches is he still a better start then mike evans

      @Dom B: let’s see how it looks first.

  15. Dom B says:
    (link)

    Also pickup Charles sims with news of bucs maybe trading doug martin

    • yogotti says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: i’ve got a question about this as well, with doug martin possibly being traded, do you play him today? will the bucs play him today with one last audition to spike his trade value? or hold him out completley to insure he’s not hurt?

      basically, do you play doug martin today!?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @yogotti: i would still play him, sure.

  16. TWhiskey says:
    (link)

    Hey man, tough decisions piling up this morning. In my 2 WR spots who do I choose from VJax, Doug Baldwin, Sanu (with Green out now) or Colston. Then in my flex do I roll with Tre Mason, Sankey (with Greene out again) or any of the above WRs? Non ppr by the way. Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @TWhiskey: Sankey, Sanu, Baldwin.

  17. Joe says:

    Looking to add Sims before players hit waivers this week. 12 team keeper, .5 PPR and I’m a Jamaal Charles owner, think it’s safe to drop Knile Davis for Sims? My only other droppable options are Dixon and Cadet but I kind of need them both this week. I could also possibly drop Justin Hunter but I’m curious to see how things go with the QB change.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Joe: it’s fine to drop Knile for him.

  18. Matt says:

    Question: in my 2 QB CBS 10 Team Fanatasy League, I just traded Quick, E Sanders and my 2015, 5th round pick for Cutler.

    My team now is:

    Cutler
    Tannenhill
    Hillman
    D. Thomas
    Cobb
    Olsen

    Then My Bench:

    Eli Manning
    Forrsett
    Ingram
    Decker
    Cooks
    Baldwin
    Holmes

    IR: RG3 & R. Jennings.

    We can only have 3 QB’s active, as well as RB’s. My question is, a guy in my league is offering me Brees and Andre Johnson, for Cutler and my 1st pick next year. Is Brees over the next 3 years even, going to be that much better than Cutler? I also get a good WR as well. Other than needing a RB, I think I could afford to part with the pick.

    Should I make the trade or stand pat?

    Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Matt: i would hold.

  20. Kenny says:

    My Brown for his Gio and Terrance Williams. My receivers are deep with: sanders, brown, ODB, wayne, VJAX and Mike Evans. My rbs: LeVeon bell, Sankey, Hillman, lamar miller. Thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Kenny: it’s a good trade.

      • Kenny says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Which trade is better: Brown for Gio and Williams or Brown and Miller for Cobb and Charles?

        • Kenny says:
          (link)

          @Kenny: He also sent me: Brown and Miller for Wallace and Charles.

          • Jay

            Jay says:

            @Kenny: i like this one too.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Kenny: the first one.

          • Kenny says:
            (link)

            @Jay: So stick with Brown for Gio and Williams?

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Kenny: i think its the best option there.

              • Kenny says:
                (link)

                @Jay: Both changed their minds. The Cobb and Charles trade thinks that both his guys are better than Brown and Miller so he said no. And now i am trying for Brown and Miller for Gio and Dez. Yay or Nay?

                • Jay

                  Jay says:

    Hey Jay- non-PPR, normal scoring. Do you start Bryce Brown @ NYJ, Cadet v GB, or J Starks @ NO? I need a guy with an OK floor of 4 or 5 points, but good upside. Thanks man!

      @RJ: Cadet.

  26. John Rambo Jr says:
    (link)

    Not to be ungrateful, but my thought process has Chi vs NE either Revis or Browner covering Jeffery. Or Mia vs JAX and who knows covering Wallace. Could you give your thoughts as to why you are leaning towards Jeffery.

    Thanks,
    JRJ

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @John Rambo Jr: Better player. Don’t mean to be simple here, but that’s why I give him the edge.
