We might as well just call all weekly rankings ‘play whoever you own against the Jacksonville Jaguars’.  Yes, I’d start Mike Glennon against them at this point.  Maybe even Ryan Fitzpatrick.  That’s how dirty it is in Jagsville.  But the reality is, Ryan Mathews had himself a fine day on MNF, gaining over 100 yards as the Chargers ran the clock down against a surprisingly inept Colts offense.  Though he didn’t find the end zone, I can’t see how the Chargers don’t take advantage of both him and Woodhead as they control the game.  Sure, it might become a bit of a shootout – I trust the Chargers defense about as much as any hollywood gossip mag at the checkout counter.  Tori Spelling’s face is melting off due to too much surgery and thus has moved to Minnesota for the cooler climate?  Ok, not likely but if that keeps her out of future movies, I could think of worse things.  Eh, where was I?  Oh yeah, start all your Chargers and enjoy it while you do it.  Actually, there are a lot of great matchups this week for guys that are sometimes fringe starters.  Alshon Jeffery looks primed for a good day against that Redskins secondary and while Jordy battle Haden, I think James Jones has himself a mighty fine day as a great secondary option for Rodgers.  Josh Freeman is being given one of the worst secondaries and I think he takes full advantage.  If Jerome Simpson is still floating around out there, it’d be a good week to pick him up in my book.  Important notes to note: if Roddy White is a no go, you’re gonna want your Harry D in the lineup for volume reasons and it makes Toilolo an intriguing add in deep leagues.  Outside of that, Jordan Reed is quietly sitting just ahead of Rudolph.  I like both having a shot at big weeks if you’re stuck with muck at TE or a Jimmy Graham bye week.  And with that, let’s kick the jabba to the curb and see what we got.  Here’s our week 7 rankings for the 2013 Fantasy Football season…

    Grabbed Ridley in Waivers n can use him or my busted CJ.5K. (Have McCoy and Waiting on Vareen to return. So getting the handcuff might work long term here. With the issues with receivers) do u play Ridley over Chris Johnson. PPV league. We are 5-1.

    Loing term could move cj2k and Josh Gorden for Doug martin owner thoughts have depth after gronk retuurns, garcon,deshawn Jax (lost cobb) n grabbed finley last weekm We play 3 receiver no TE poisition needed.so wouuldhave gronk garcon n desean jax?

      @jeff g: Gotcha covered with the rankings above.

      This second part is really messy and confusing. You asking if you should trade Gordon and CJ0K for Doug Martin? I’m assuming ‘no TE position’ means you have WR/TE, not 3 wide receivers…eh, could you clean this up, it’s really hard to answer this question without some clarity.

      • jeff g says:
        (link)

        @Sky: teams have 5 receivers they can comprosed of any combonation of TE’s or WR and we play 3 of them. So I have gronk n finley gordon garcon deasean jax (cobb on IR for my team).

        As 4 ridley vs cj this week neither guy is ranked in your rankings

        Thnx brother

    Gonna toss the dreaded lineup out there to see what you guys all think. I’m in second (first in points, though) and trying to upgrade where I can. The guy who has Blackmon and Megatron is in last place and is looking to change things up. Unfortunately he has no RBs that I see as an upgrade to what I have. He has MJD, Woodhead, Quiz, SJax. Here’s my lineup, see any viable trades (particularly for Megatron or Blackmon?

    QB – Stafford
    WR – Dez
    WR – Green
    WR – Garcon
    RB – Forte
    RB – Bernard
    TE – Black Unicorn
    W/R – Decker
    W/R/T – Gordon
    BN – R.Wilson
    BN – J.Graham
    BN – Sproles
    BN – CJnoK
    BN – Ellington
    BN – Harvin
    IR – A.Brown

    It’s 10 yards per point for receiving and rushing; 0.5 PPR; 3 point bonus at 85 yards receiving, 100 yards rushing; 6 point bonus at 135 yards receiving, 150 yards rushing.

    Receivers are easily as valuable as RBs, if not more so, in this league. If you can play 4-5 top WRs, you’ll just about win every week. I’m 4-2 with the most points and only have Forte as a guaranteed starting RB every week.

    • Yeshcheese says:

      @Wilsonian: you just need a huge upgrade at RB2. Target woodhead

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Yeshcheese: do you think I need him with having Sproles, too? He would be my RB2 with Bernard. He’s just on BYE this week.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: You’re getting to the point where you’re trying to make trades to make trades, my man. Look at your WRs. Do you see a reason to sit any of them? Only way you’re getting Blackmon and makes it worthwhile is moving Decker for him straight up. If not, then you should probably just hold. Just because they’re in last place doesn’t remove their brain cells.

      Gio is the 12th best back according to yahoo. I think he’s just fine as your RB2.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: I’m a chronic rosterbater. Happens in baseball, too. I’m always trying to make the team better. I’m overall happy with my team, but I’m not married to it if something can make it better. But I completely see your point.

        I also really like Gio, and I have Sproles, so I don’t think the upgrade there is absolutely necessary, either.

        As usual, I appreciate the advice. I may send Decker for Blackmon and premise it on the good team vs. bad team and see if he bites. If not, I may offer Decker up for Allen to roll the dice. Guy with Allen has Peyton and is a Colts/Manning fan. So he would probably take that deal.

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: Yeah, second play there is more risky but Decker for Blackmon wins for you in the long run, IMHO.

          • Wilsonian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: I sent the Blackmon offer. We’ll see if anything comes of it. I doubt it, and if not, I’m not going to lose too much sleep over it.

        Would it be crazy to play hilton over brown in my flex this week? I just looked at what the cowboys wrs and Blackmon did to the Broncos secondary the past 2 weeks and I’m salivating at the thought of hilton making a couple of deep catches.

    Great work as always sky. Tough decisions for me this week. Losing Amendola and Julio in back to back weeks has really drained some life out of my team. 12 teM. 1 point ppr league. IDP league as well(which keeps me in it every week.) My questions are…

    At wr if you had to pick one to start.. dobson or miles austin or kerley.

    At flex ill have to play a rb.. so please help pick 3.. Ridley TRich Gio Ellington

    Thank you in advance… also will Julio be the dynamic player he was.before another foot injury. This league is a keeper league and im holding Jones. Missing him so so much haha

    12 tm .5 ppr league- 4 wr 2rb 1 flex:

    would you trade spiller, josh gordon, douglas, ellington for Jamal charles, percy harvin?

    my other two rbs are bush and gio and other wr are marshall, balckmon, and wes….

    I think it would solidify my RB’s and can use gio as flex and then use percy or edeleman whose on my bench as the 4 wr, should i do the trade or hope the spiller production increases?

    gratzi!

  15. Ian says:

    Hey Sky, I’m looking for some trade advice.

    My team is deep at running back, but could definitely use an upgrade at WR and/or TE (12-teamer, non-PPR). There happens to be another owner who has great WR/TE, but needs running back help.

    I’m hoping to acquire DeSean and Bennett in exchange for Decker and one of my running backs, and I think Decker + Lamar Miller will be my opening offer. Do you agree that would be a coup for me if he accepts? Also, if he doesn’t want Miller, how high would you be willing to go up my RB list before such a deal stops being advantageous? Thanks!

    RB: AP, Moreno, Spiller, Ridley, Le’Veon Bell, Miller
    WR: Nelson, Decker, Allen, ‘Dola, Harvin
    TE; G. Graham

    • Justin says:
      (link)

      @Ian: No higher then Bell IMO.

    • Sky

      Sky says:
      (link)

      @Ian: I like Miller more than Bell by a good margin. I wouldn’t call it a coup because the TE you’re getting isn’t a Jordon Cameron-type. I’d call it fair if it’s Bell.

      No chance Reed is available? Graham isn’t all that bad of a TE to start. both picks in the redzone last week were thrown to him.

      • Ian says:
        (link)

        @Sky: Reed is available, although I’d hesitate to drop any of my WRs or RBs for him, so it’d have to be Graham and then roll with Reed the rest of the way (or continue to play the waiver wire TE game). I was planning to give Graham one more week to break out as the Texans’ safety valve, but I can switch to Reed if you think he’ll be better ROS.

        Mostly, though, I’m trying to figure out how to turn my RB depth into a stronger starting lineup. I’m 3-3, and having the highest scoring bench each week hasn’t earned me any additional wins. Any advice on which position I should try to upgrade, or any particular depth guys you think I should try to package in a deal?

        • Sky

          Sky says:
          (link)

          @Ian: TE is your weakness. I’d either go after Reed or I’d look to trade up at that position with one of your RBs but I doubt you get a big name without giving up a big name in return. You’re probably stuck trading down at TE which is why I’m suggesting giving Reed a go.

          The only other thing you could do is go after a big name WR but overall I like the set you already have.

          As always, you have RB depth until you don’t and wish you had it.

          • Ian says:
            (link)

            @Sky: Thanks for the thorough analysis, Sky. After mulling it over and looking at what other teams in my league have/need, I have three more ideas I’d love to get your opinion on.

            Should I pursue any of the following?
            1. Offer Moreno and another RB for Charles and Gates
            2. Swap a RB for Gordon to strengthen my WR corps (is he enough of an upgrade over what I have?)
            3. Drop Graham to pick up Reed

    Morning Sky,

    So based on the rankings, I’m favoring Keenan Allan over Andre Johnson. Also, I’m going to be favoring Lamar Miller over Trent Richardson. That leaves me with one spot open in the flex for either Trent or Andre.

    Which one do I go with? I can’t believe that I’m going to be benching one of the two!

    thanks in advance…

    • willy says:
      (link)

      @willy: standard league btw…

      • Sky

        Sky says:
        (link)

        @willy: I think it’s gotta be Trent. I know its non-PPR but I think he gets a few out on the flat this week and finally gets things going. I haven’t given up on that boy!

        • willy says:
          (link)

          @Sky: Thank you… I was leaning towards Trent because of Andre’s KC matchup, but you have re-assured me.

          So… it seams like Andre is trending downwards. should i try trading him for an upgrade elsewhere? Here’s the roster. It’s pretty stacked (10 teamer):

          Rivers
          Cruz
          J Nelson
          Keenan Allen
          J Charles
          Lamar Miller
          Vernon Davis
          Trent Richardson or Andre Johnson (flex)
          Gostkowski
          KC
          Bench:
          T Williams
          Hartline
          Foles
          H Miller
          P Harvin
          Vereen (IR)

          don’t see many holes… I’m thinking about holding, just in case Keenan Allan drops off. Then again, I figure if I’ve got Andre on the bench, would be nice to upgrade somewhere else. Or maybe I just hold and enjoy my depth? I’m going back and forth with the pros and cons… please set me strait!

          • Sky

            Sky says:
            (link)

            I’m not seeing a clear need for you to upgrade anywhere. Think I’d rather have Andre as depth unless you can move off Andre and get another WR that’s in his draft day price range but that’s gonna be tough.

    Dwayne Bowe #66? Wow, just..wow. Not that I disagree with it but my, how the mighty have fallen. I’m starting to think Bowe is going to get more use later in the season than now. I haven’t watched the Chiefs games this year but I get the feeling they really haven’t been in a game yet where they’ve had to throw to keep up. Weeks 11-13 they play the Broncos twice and I have a feeling he’ll be of use there in that capacity. Even not considering that, are they really gonna pay this guy $50mil to run routes as a decoy?
