You’ve been patient but anxious.  Excited and yet nervous.  Yearning for your top TE to return but realizing when he returns it’s gonna be glorious.  Well, McLovin, it looks like your moment has come.  Barring any unforeseen reports of a thumbs down from Dr. James Andrews, it looks like Rob Gronkowski will finally grace active fantasy rosters for 2013.  I’m pretty sure he’s still 1% started by the guys that drafted and never set their lineup.  You know the one.  We all have our own personal Taco in our league.  But regardless, you’re elated to get your Gronk back so you can stop streaming the dregs of Sean McGrath and Kellen Winslow through your lineups.  Hopefully he didn’t screw you into a gruesome start to the year but all’s well that Tight Ends well, right?  Outside of the return of the original partying TE, I have Eddie Lacy down in flex territory which is apparently a tad different from how others view him.  Did Baltimore somehow forget how to stop the run?  No?  Ok then, I don’t get his rankings this week unless we’re crazy desperate because of bye weeks to rank notable names.  I’m gonna let the PT Cruiser keep cruising in my rankings.  I had my hunches about the hometown boy having a good game but the big thing about this week is the matchup…and there aren’t many great RBs to pick from.  Besides him, I’m still trusting Gio-B more than my counterparts right now and actually have Vincent Jackson as my 11th wideout in standard.  I know the story’s not great in Tampa Bay but you wanna know what is great?  The Philly defense…wait, I meant it’s great facing them cuz they’re not great.  It’s crizzap on that side of the ball.  Even with Glennon behind center, I’d take my chances with VJax.  Dallas defense?  Not great but at home and I think they’ll score a touchdown due to the ‘skins offense still looking a bit rugged to start the year.  Indy Colts def?  They’ve been trending the right direction.  Might surprise a San Diego team that turns the ball over a bit.  But enough of the j to the ibberjabber, let’s get on with it.  Here’s the week 6 rankings for 2013 Fantasy Football…

    Jason Witten and David Wilson for Alfred Morris? Y! 10 Team Standard league

    Will Own Jimmy Gramham at TE and Doug Martin,MJD, Lamar Miller, Mcgahee and now Alfred morris at RB. I feel Morris will make a better upgrade at RB2 over MJD o r Mcgahee this week and maybe beyond.

    With the 2 for 1 trade (which I know you hate…but makes other teams feel like they r getting more when they r actually getting less ) I will now be able to pick up a DEF to start over NE.

    Good Trade and strategy or Bone Head Move? Sitting at 2-3 in 7th.

      If you have Graham, it’s fine. A bit of an overspend but in 10 team, it’s about having the best lineup on a weekly basis moreso than having the best team.

    Non-PPR league: Vincent Jackson or Gio Bernard for a FLEX? Thanks!

    Trade Rivers for Amendola.

    Good trade? I

    Current QBs: Romo, Rivers.

    Current RBs: Rice, Spiller, Richardson, D. Thomas

    Current WR: Cobb, Nicks, Bowe, K. Allen.

    I plan on flipping Bowe for Lamar Miller and picking Bradford to be my backup QB.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Jared Cook. Time to drop him if Reed is on the waiver wire?

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      Ehhhh, Reed’s a low ceiling play. Not a terrible move but it’ll be a lot of 4/50 5/55 lines. Nothing wrong with that, just not gonna have big weeks.

    Hey sky, I’d like your opinion on a couple possible trades, sitting at 1-4 so this week is a must win like most weeks going forward. It’s a 5 ppr league
    1. Forte for aj green and sproles
    2. Mjd and Colston for aj green
    3, mjd and Colston for dez Brient
    4. Forte, vereen, Colston for Gronk aj green sproles
    Let me know which deals you like thanks for input
    Qb – Brady
    Wr – decker
    Wr – Calvin
    Rb – forte
    Rb – l bell
    Te – cook (killing me weekly)
    Flex – mjd
    Bench – Colston vereen Brandon bolden Keenan Allen Bryce brown

      @Oppo Taco: .5 ppr sorry

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      1. Sure

      2. Nah, probably doesn’t work anyway

      3. I wouldn’t trade you Dez for those two

      4. I’d want the Gronk side, doubt it works.

      • Oppo Taco says:
        (link)

        @Sky: you would rather Colston and mjd than aj? Do you see jones drew being anymore productive than what he’s been to this point? Also this particular owner has Heath miller. Is he an upgrade over cook ROS?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Oppo Taco: Given AJ’s struggles, feels like an overspend but in the end like I said, I wouldn’t give you green for that package so it’s probably moot.

          Heath Miller is a low celing/high floor player. Weekly 5/60 or 6/65 is useful just have to be ok with that. He’s the safer play, wouldn’t call him the better one.

    Morning Bud… This guy offered me Joquie Bell and Cam Newton for MJD and Bowe. Iv’e been trying to dump those guys on someone anyway and it hasn’t been working AT ALL but is that worth it for me?? He has Le Veon Bell whichI think is better, should I counter with him and Cam?? I know how you feel about 2 QB’s but I’m gonna use Cam as a trade option for another WR. This guy is in dying need of WR’s even before he lost Julio..

      Take the deal

      • Frank White says:
        (link)

        He just sold JoiqBell while I was waiting but do you like Leveon Bell?

        • Frank White says:
          (link)

          and throe him Chris Givens too to sweeten up cause he’s thinking about it??

          • Frank White says:
            (link)

            I was about to drop Givens anyway

            • Frank White says:

              u there?

              Sky says:

              He’s not going to sweeten the deal

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          You can ask but that’s probably too much.

          • Frank White says:
            (link)

            No he’s gonna do it but I’m also throwing him Givens.. What u think, Le Veon Bell n Cam for Bowe, MJD and Chris Givens?? The only thing that sucks is that will leave me one WR on the bench but I’ll have a spot or 2 to pick more up

            • Frank White says:
              (link)

              I meant I’m sweeting the deal up with Givens

              Sky says:
              (link)

              Go ahead and try. I simply said Givens doesn’t sweeten the deal and I don’t think it’ll work.

              • Frank White says:
                (link)

                he said yeah.. I’m offering eeither givens with it or Stewert. doesn’t matter either way right??

    U have coached me to a 5-0 squad; have wr/te studs in a ppr league. We play 3 wideouts; we don’t have a TE: pick 3 Gronk; Djax; Cobb; Josh Gorden; Garcon?

    Thinlk of sittimng. D jAx while he vacations on Revis Island and sit Gorden while he vacations on Cleveland QB island why anyone would want to gp to Cleveland is beyond me

    We play H to H and entire team for total points. Do i also move WR/TE for upgrade at Run Back; McCoy, CJ2k. Bell m stashed. Vareen?

    • jeff g says:
      (link)

      @jeff g: we play 2 run backs there is no flex. Rodgers is QB w terrelle, gostkowsli K jets and indy D

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        Nice! If you don’t have a TE or a flex, what are you doing with Gronk?

        Gronk/Garcon/Gordon for me…still don’t know how you’re using Gronk though.

        Are you saying those are your RBs or your targets?

        • jeff g says:
          (link)

          @Sky: we need to play 3 wr or TE mix no requirement to play either or.

          You play gorden over cobb?

          I was asking abt my running backs I am hating cj.5k mccoy is a stud and vareen will be a ppr monster when he returns. Will have to drop bell or cj2k when vareen returns. Do I my rb 2 by offering 1 of my wr/te studs and cj2k and who would I want?

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            If you wanna play it safe, you can go w/Cobb. Gordon can do what he did last week pretty regularly though.

            Not about who you want, it’s about the needs of the other owner. If you’re trying a two for one from that set, you should be aiming very high. Most likely you’re better off doing a 1-1. Try and get someone that isn’t a sexy name but is productive. Alfred Morris comes to mind.

  9. Robert says:

    Good morning! Looking forward to tonight’s game, have Martellus going (hopefully). Question on flex. PPR league, need 2 RB, 2 WR and flex. Going McCoy and Woodhead at RB, Andre and Antonio Brown at WR. Debating between Fitz and Alfred Morris at flex. Leaning Morris. Thoughts? Thank you

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      Morris

  10. Robert says:
    (link)

    Also – I see you have Pryor rated higher the Wilson, but they are close. I think Wilson has a lower floor, but Pryor a much higher ceiling. If I’m in a gambling mood this weekend, do you go Pryor?

    Thanks again, and good luck with your teams!

    Wassup Sky? Have you heard all this talk about people being super-high on Chad Henne this week vs DEN? Should I drink the kook-aid and perhaps start him over M. Stafford vs CLE this week?

    • isaacvandamme says:
      (link)

      @isaacvandamme: *kool. Whoops. Freudian slip. Or maybe I am a kook for believing the hype? Either way, thanks in advance.

      Hey Isaac,

      It’s a good matchup and he’ll be playing from behind all day so plenty of time to throw the ball. Still think that would be a bit much to start him over Stafford.

  12. DDT says:

    Sky,

    The Browns DST doesn’t rank in this weeks top 21?

    Please explain.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      I have no explanation other than saying I made a mistake and missed them. Fix is in, hopefully it shows up quickly. Put them 13th.

  13. Dion Horne says:
    (link)

    Big decision! I need to win this week and my roster is depleted… I have to start two of these 3, MJD, Zach Stacy or Chris Givens? Obviously I have limited options so at the moment MJD is my #2 RB so it’s a toss between Stacy and Givens as my flex? Bad position, but such is life, thanks.

    • Sky

      Sky says:

      MJD/Stacy

  14. Ted says:

    Would you cut Edelman or Nicks for WRs like Blackmon or Gordon?
