Cardinals Fever Football

Hey guys, you can call off the search party now. I found Kid Rock. All is well.

Despite having a spectacularly unreliable offense at times, the Chip Kelly innovated™ Philadelphia Eagles find themselves 5-1, vying for the NFC East lead with the surprisingly competent Cowboys. And while we are still a good month and some days away from December, this looks like a finish that should provide plenty of entertainment, with a healthy side of NFC East derp, the purist derp out there, some would say. The Cardinals, who have had their own issues on offense, also bring a 5-1 record, trying to prove that Arizona is the new Seattle. All you need is not to be landlocked, and have some sort of progressive movement, and, you know, have a good football team. Well, you got one of the three so far… let’s see what happens next.

    Would you trade Antonio brown for Gio?

      No, I wouldn’t.

    Drop my backup qb tannehill for Gray in a 10-team non ppr, I will need a week 9 bye week fill for Aaron Rodgers but I want to grab Gray and my weakest bench players are Edelman, A Johnson, Ingram, T Mason & Matthews right now…

      @Nick: I also have Sanu, Beckham and R Jennings but none are droppable

    • Jay

      @Nick: Yup, sure looks like the primary back after this game…

    Gio is hurt. Should I try for him and Nelson/Bryant for Miller and Brown

      Jay says:

      @Anonymous: Yeah, that’s still an okay trade for you.

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:

      @Anonymous: while i hope he’s actually hurt (have hill in 2 spots), this is his third small injury in 3 weeks, he’s yet to miss any time.

    My whole team has played (thurs night and early games) but he has 5 players to go…I hate this feeling!!!

        And hopefully in this week, I’m the hero…

          @Ryan: Very possible! (Both outcomes.)

    Like the hamster he is doug martin needs to crawl back up someone’s ass where he belongs, cause he certainly has no business being on a football field.

    Now with the news Gio being injured again would you do the Gio and Dez for a. Brown and lamar

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Dom B: not if I’m getting Gio. I’d wait to see how it unfolds.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: this is at least the 2nd time Dom B and his trading opp are asking about their trades about 2 comments apart. why they don’t follow the advice given to the other one first is beyond me, and completely funny.

  7. Kenny says:
    (link)

    Not tryna bug ya Jay! haha but I have a guy who is going to trade me Charles and Mike Wallace for Lamar Miller and Antonio Brown depending how Brown plays. Is it even worth trying to trade. I have a feeling i should trade high for Miller, but I’m not sure.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Kenny: Naw man, that’s what I’m here for. I don’t like the Wallace part, but Charles is a game changer. I’m comfortable with it, but you might be able to get more after this Steelers game…

      • Kenny says:
        (link)

        @Jay: He said that Charles is better than Brown. I would be asking for Cobb instead of Wallace. He says that Cobb is better than Miller. I love brown, but I have so much depth at receiver and I feel Miller is bound to break soon. Even today, he only had around 10 carries. My ideal trade would be Brown and Miller for Cobb and Charles. We shall see.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Kenny: Yeah, Charles is. It’s fair, but might be a hard fought trade.

          • Kenny says:
            (link)

            @Jay: He said he would only do Wallace and Charles. Should I say no and forget it or still do it?

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @Kenny: I don’t think its something you need to do.

        • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:

          @Kenny: it’s not because he’s about to break, it’s MIA is run by clowns.

    with this roster in standard it sure looks like i should’ve grabbed gray other than freeman. should i now drop a.will for gray (and dodge my 12th waiver status). i could waiver a.will for freeman later (risk not getting him back , and probably wouldn’t). start 2 RB/ 2 WR/ 2 WR or TE/ 1 RB or WR. i also could drop freeman for sims later if a.will got sneaked from me.
    romo
    bell (PIT)/ivory/a.will/b.brown/hill/freeman
    dez/jimmy g/olsen (first bad week ever)/wright/royal/beckham

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: wait, i forgot again, i CAN drop anybody i have that hasn’t played yet, but can only do it prewaivers for guys that haven’t played yet (or won’t). so i’ll have to just put in the waiver claim for gray/sims for dropping freeman and probably will get sims, since he’s still on IR.

    Hey Jay got another offer his Gio and Jordy Nelson for my Antonio Brown and Lamar Miller who gets better end do it or hold

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Kenny: Oh, yeah, I’d still hold until we know whats up with Gio for sure.

      @Kenny: are kenny/anonymous/Dom B all the same person making trades to themselves, at least 2 of those are the same person otherwise.

    got a different team that is falling apart fast with quick now with 3 worthless weeks in a row, and this lineup. PPR with .05 pts per return yard.
    romo/cutler
    vereen/miller/mathews (he takes standard medical healing time and adds at least 3 weeks pretty much every time huh)/mason/hill/ingram
    wayne/quick/julio/garcon (and have to play 3 per week)/gordon (RES stash)
    reed/j.graham

    for next week i’ll have to either
    A. hope wayne plays (and still play quick)
    B. drop reed for free agent WR (and either need wayne to play or pickup over quick). free agents being martavis/landry/j.jones (BAL)/wheaton/cooper etc.
    C. trade Reed for guy with fairly low value
    D. trade J.Graham for WR with great value
    this team will be 5-3 and about 5th overall in pts, maybe 6th after this shit show this week. Could not worry much and assume it makes playoffs and by that time gordon is doing his thing (he does have fairly hard playoff schedule). Obviously Graham looking good immediately would help clear up this situation.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: A. I will be praying for that as well. B. Reed for Bennett isn’t crazy. I’d try to hold on Graham unless there’s something delicious out there.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Jay: reed for bennett? i meant reed for a WR till gordon comes back, at least near wayne value (or at least better than waiver wire value). of course i could also drop cutler or romo for waiver WR, since Graham still doesn’t really look startable, and i might need to keep starting Reed over him. I really can’t start Quick again after three weeks of that (i only had to start him this week, since wayne injured)

          • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
            (link)

            @Jay: also, i just received this offer: my julio for s.smith and rainey. i would think even if rainey was suddenly starting this would still be a no (unless a team was VERY much in need of a RB that started), and it’s certainly a no considering rainey isn’t even a starter. plus i already have decent RB depth, but am fairly weak at WR with wayne/quick either hurt or underperforming lately.

              (link)

              @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: the team that’s beating my ass this week was able to waiver MIA and i got IND this week, MIA outscored IND by 28 pts and thank god this wasn’t due to me choosing IND over MIA (whew!)

              • Jay

                Jay says:
                (link)

                @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Seriously, I was thinking about our convo on the Indy defense. We probably doomed them together.

                • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
                  (link)

                  @Jay: worst part is i only used IND defense since CIN being so good for three weeks to start year tricked us (me) into dropping ARI D for CIN D, then i had CIN when they sucked, leading me to get IND, but only right when they sucked too. So basically i haven’t had a good D performance since like week 3. for next week i’m guessing CIN or CLE simply due to JAX/TB
                  CIN vs JAX
                  IND @ NYG
                  PIT vs BAL
                  CLE vs TB

                  also, just noticing that quick sucked since he was hurt and went out early, so i’ll likely drop quick and cutler for some of moncrief (as wayne owner he seems valuable when wayne is out)/m.bryant (there’s no way i get both, just hope i can get one of them). with jimmy graham looking decent i might be able to keep quick and trade reed.

                    @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow: Well, you’ve got it down then. Pick up, like, NE three weeks earlier, and you should be set.

                    And yeah, he quickly sucked. Sounds good on everything else.

              • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
                (link)

                @Jay: no on trading reed (for WR) to play graham or no on dropping IND D for one of those other ones? or no on dropping quick? or no on moncrief/m.bryant being pickups? (could be more than 1 no obviously)

    Got my boy MCCOY screwing me over is he still an RB 1 or should i trade him for Lacy got an offer.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Leseanisbadfornow: Depends on the other parts, but I’d hold. I’m still okay with him.

  13. The Thumb says:
    (link)

    Would you trade LeSean for Dez? My RBs are pretty deep with Ellington, Miller, Bradshaw, and Hillman.

    I have Julio and Sanders but just about nothing else at WR. Holding Gordon though.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @The Thumb: Hmm, yeah, based on that config, I’m okay with it.

    Brandon Cooks is on waivers in 10 team non ppr, worth a look over Sanu, Ingram, T Mason, Edelman, A Johnson, Matthews…

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’d hold.

  15. Stanman says:

    I’m thinking of making a trade of Alshon Jeffery and Alfred Morris for t.y. Hilton. Is that a good trade? Am I giving too much? Should I offer more? (I could throw in decker or James jones as well, but that’s kind of just adding trash at the end so he can have better wr depth on his bench…)

    • Stanman says:
      (link)

      @Stanman: also I am thinking of possibly doing a Alfred Morris and Jeffery trade for Greg Olsen.. Is that a viable trade?
