Well, that was something. And if you think I’m referring to the Presidential debate instead of the game, I’d say, why not both? And while I won’t go into politics here, I’ll do one better and I promise not to drop that “special” teams joke that I’m sure will be the go-to joke at your cooler talk-sesh (are water coolers still a thing?), but I would still continue to point out that weekday football is still, to this very day, able to bring one of two things; derpy or boring. There is no in-between, no negotiation, no choice. These two, that’s it. And you add two teams from the NFC South to the mix? Well, just one look above to see the majesty and grace of “wtf?” confirms my aforementioned theory. And while my predicted score was just a tiny bit aggressive, we still arrived at an Arena Football-esque score. And at times, it was pretty hard to believe that there were Saints players on the field at all when the Falcons were on offense. Then again you could say the same about the Falcons, but to a lesser degree. So I guess I just described this game perfectly: Saints really bad, Falcons a little bit less. Really rolls off the tongue…

Drew Brees36/54, 376 YDS, 7.0 AVG, 3 TD, 1 INT, 97.5 RTG and 2 CAR, 9 YDS. Giving up that interception was very disrespectful to the Katrina survivors.

Tevin Coleman12 CAR, 42 YDS, 3 TD and 3 REC, 47 YDS. We’ll talk about Freeman in a bit, but Coleman was still able to get near 100 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 touches. I mean, Geez Saints, I hadn’t seen a defense this weak since Poland in 1939.

Coby Fleener7 REC, 109 YDS, 1 TD. Wow, the Saints were able to score without a basketball player. DRINK.

Devonta Freeman14 CAR, 152 YDS and 5 REC, 55 YDS, 1 TD. It’s just really nice to see a team like the Saints that work to get out of the way of opposing offenses. It’s certainly a refreshing change of pace to a majority of NFL teams. Granted, it’s also nice to see Freeman a bit more effective. True it is against the Saints, so if you’re not feeling super confident, now is the time to sell. (I’m actually holding here despite some of early season woes.)

Mark Ingram – 15 CAR, 77 YDS and 4 REC, 30 YDS, 1 TD. Mark Ingram was rated as a top-10 running back in fantasy and waited ’till Week 3 to show us how he’s a top-25 running back. Baby steps everyone. Baby steps…

John Kuhn1 CAR, 3 YDS, 1 TD. White New Orleans fans were wondering whether it was okay to do the traditional cheer when Kuhn scored his bi-weekly vulturedown…

Matt Ryan20/30, 240 YDS, 2 TD, 113.2 RTG and 5 CAR, 23 YDS. Is it just me or does Ryan run like a giant turkey?

      @Moscowitz: Rawls, though, I’m surprised it’s become this close.

  2. Pigs says:

    Reading about this game made me glad I don’t have cable.

    12 team full point PPR I trade Jordan Reed and get Devante Parker. I have pitta on the bench and only 2 healthy WRs in Decker and Cooks. Parker also has good keeper value. Worth doing?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Pigs: Seriously! Yeah, it’s fair. Limit on keepers? If not, I’d hesitate a little.

      • Pigs says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yeah there is a 2 year limit. First year is when they were drafted, second is at adp (so stupid)

        kept reed for a last rounder this and Parker would be a late rounder next year

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Pigs: Ah, then I like that deal for you still, gaining an extra year on Parker.

      @Brian: Wentz.

    Pls ran for ppr:
    Howard
    McKinnon
    Gio

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Not so fast my friend – if Howard is indeed a 3 down back, you gotta roll Howard on # of opportunities right? Chicago doesn’t have a 3rd down back if Carey is still hurt.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: In PPR, it’s debatable. Again, I’m not crazy about Howard yet, he didn’t really do much in the preseason, and I still think Langford will have a presence. That being said, he’s a pickup because he has the chance to take hold of the job, but if it’s PPR, still going with Gio.

          • William Hung says:
            (link)

            @Jay: Langford is out for 3-4 weeks

            • Jay

              Jay says:
              (link)

              @William Hung: Yeah, when he returns. That is definitely a committee this season unless Howard separates himself.

  5. Whose the better waiver grab going forward Jay; Ajayi, Sproles (I have Ryan Mathews), Jordan Howard, Artis-Payne or Kenneth Dixon? I would drop Dwayne Washington, DET. Maybe you could list them in the order you see them? Thanks Jay.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @madden_curser: Sure thing! I have them as Howard, Ajayi, Sproles. If this is PPR, I like Sproles over Ajayi at the moment.

      • @Jay: 10 team standard. So Howard, Ajayi & Sproles all better options than Dwayne Washington then? What about Darkwa? He could start some games for the G-men.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @madden_curser: Not too high on Darkwa. I think Howard will get another chance, the Bears are falling apart fast.

  6. Wilsonian says:
    (link)

    I got steamrolled because Jones and Benjamin didn’t show up. Oh, and I benched Winston in favor of Bortles. Would you make any moves here?

    Bortles for Wentz
    Bortles for Siemian
    Drop an IDP for Rudolph (have Reed, but he’s been VERY meh) (would also have to pick up an IDP later in the week)
    Wallace for DeVante Parker
    Wallace for Tyrell Williams

    0.5 PPR – 4 points for passing TD/6 points for rushing/receiving TD – 3 point bonus at 250 yards passing/100 yards rushing/85 yards receiving – 6 point bonus at 335 yards passing/150 yards rushing/135 yards receiving

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Wilsonian: BORTLES FOR ANYONE. Okay, so Wentz for sure, I’m okay with Siemian, but I’d prefer someone with at least some sort of ceiling. I still like Reed, TEs are just a fickle beast. Wallace is a tough one, I like both off those guys a bit more, but it’s hard to pull the trigger with him being a red zone threat. I’d go Parker if you want to switch things out, but I’m also okay holding there.

      • Wilsonian says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thanks man. Bortles has killed me. He looks lost out there, for sure. I’ll try to hold on maybe for this week since Wentz is on BYE, I don’t see anyone picking him up this week. I still like Reed, and have no intentions of dropping him, but Rudolph looks like a decent backup. Maybe I’ll hang on to Wallace for this week too. Don’t want to go jumping to any conclusions just because I lost due to Jones and Benjamin combining for ONE reception.

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Wilsonian: Yeah, I don’t think that’ll be the status quo moving forward… but still, really frustrating. I think in one league I had Decker, Cobb, and Cooper. That went well…

    Send away john brown and Crowell to get rashad and cardinals d?

    I stream Ds usually but after the first 3 weeks I’ve lost because of an incorrect call on streaming (went Pittsburgh last week) im over it..

      Jay says:

  8. Btdrnks says:

    My Lamar Miller for Allen Robinson? Or would I be better looking for a TE? My team is currently:

    QB: Winston
    RB:David Johnson, Lamar Miller, Mark Ingram, Eddie Lacy and Jamal Charles.
    WR: Jordan Matthews, Michael Crabtree, Tyrell Williams, Phillip Dorsett, Josh Gordon
    TE: Bennett
    IR: Dion Lewis

    We keep 5 forever in this league…

    Thanks!

      @Btdrnks: Oh..I also have Kevin white

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Btdrnks: I was going to say that you could get more on this, but then I read it’s a keeper. I prefer Robinson long term, by a good margin. I’d do that trade with all the RB depth you have.

  9. Josh says:

    Team is
    Eli manning
    Maclin
    Mike Evans
    Levon bell
    Lat Murray
    Julius Thomas
    Will fuller

    Tevin Coleman, ajayi, dorsett, Corey Coleman, funchess. Rashad Jennings. Would you trade tevin Coleman in this half Ppr league and what could I package with him to get a better player overal?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’d probably package him with Maclin and try to get something like a Green.

      • Josh says:
        (link)

        @Jay: so I have enough running back depth to get rid of Coleman ?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Josh: Sure, it’ll be light, but I like Jennings when he returns, so you should be okay.

    PPR league should i Add howard and/or Rawls. and drop who?
    I’m also gonna shop RB for WR in trade this week.
    We start 2 WR, 2 RB, and a FLEX

    RB- Anderson, Bell, Lacy, Ware, Bernard, Sims, McKinnon
    WR- Edelman, Floyd, Matthews, Tate

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @chad: I’m looking at your team, honestly, I wouldn’t drop anyone for those two at the moment. Not high on McKinnon, but I’d hold for at least one more week to see how they handle their running game without AP.

  12. chad says:
    (link)

    Bortles or Cousins ROS?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @chad: That… is a great question. Tough one. I’d say Cousins, but it’s close.

  13. friar says:
    (link)

    10-team 0.5 ppr, I’ve been offered Diggs for McKinnon. It feels like good value to me (seems the Vikings might be becoming a passing team), although RB isn’t exactly a position of strength for me until Charles gets healthy (I mix and match Gio and McKinnon as my RB2, and I have some upside guys on the bench). Still, I usually start a third WR at flex and Diggs would give me 4 solid options there, which is handy heading into the byes.

    Should I pull the trigger and grab Diggs? Thanks!

    QB: Tannehill (for now…I’m streaming)
    RB: Miller, Gio, McKinnon, Charles, Washington, Lewis
    WR: Landry, Kelvin, Maclin, Wallace
    TE: Gronk, Witten

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @friar: Yeah, I totally want Diggs there.

    Give:
    Gronk
    Forte
    Snead

    Get:
    Le’Veon

    Have Eifert to replace Gronk.

    Tyrell Williams
    Michael Thomas
    RB:

    Howdy Jay!

    .5 ppr league.

    Here’s my team

    QB: rivers

    RB1: David Johnson
    RB2: Melvin Gordon

    WR1: Hopkins
    WR2: sharpe
    WR3: fuller

    Flex: Sterling Shepard

    TE: Witten

    D/st: Miami D

    Kicker: Matt Bryant

    Bench: Hyde, Henry, Chris hogan, Chris Johnson, Dwayne Washington, josh Howard, Matt Ryan, Philip dorsett, enunwa.

    On IR slots (we have 2) I have moncrief & Watkins there

    Now looking at my roster would you package my Hyde + sharpe for a reliable WR2? One owner has Allen Robinson, one owner has Marvin jones. Would you target any of those WRs? Is Hyde + sharpe for those WRs a fair deal?

    Another owner lost Langford, j stew is injured, his only healthy RBs are Matt jones, artis Payne, and Deandre Washington. However he’s deep at WR, offer him Hyde + sharpe (or Dwayne Washington) for either his Jordy, demaryius or Kelvin Benjamin? He also has Jordan Matthews & his WR1 is AJ green.

    Part 2.
    Witten hasn’t been reliable fantasy wise, drop Enunwa for Kyle Rudolph? Other avail TEs are Brate, hunter Henry, Doyle, Jesse James.

    Last Q, are you rostering both rivers & Matt Ryan or dropping Ryan?

    Thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Count chocula: Yeah, I kinda like selling Hyde right now, his value is pretty high. I’d go for Robinson there, nice buy-low there, but try for that Jordy one first. Even Kelvin is great too. Enunwa for Rudolph is fine too, though, I think Witten will be okay.

  21. In a Van Down by the Rivers says:
    (link)

    In a 14 team PPR league and a Gurley owner in my league is 1-2 and desperate.

    M. Gordon and R. Mathews for T. Gurley? Yay or nay? I may have to throw in a WR too. I think with Allen out it really hurts Gordon’s value.

    Current team. (3 – 0)
    QB. M. Ryan
    RB. M. Gordon
    RB. CJ Anderson
    WR. A. Brown
    WR. Marvin Jones
    Flex. A. Cooper
    TE J. Thomas

    Bench
    RB R. Mathews
    RB. DeAndre Washington
    WR. Steve Smith
    WR. Tajae Sharpe
    TE D. Pitta
    QB P. Rivers

    10 Team / 0.5 PPR

    I’m not a big fan of Demaryius… I think he only has two 100 yard games since last season?… but, of course, I drafted him.

    How much of an improvement would getting Amare Cooper be? Would you give Demaryius and Gore for him?

    I have running back depth still with: Ingram, Forte, Devonta, Sims, Dwane Washington, and Abdulla (on IR spot).

    • Jay

    I have Brees and Stafford in a one QB league which seems excessive, especially when they each had big weeks 1 and 3 and down week 2.

    Flex-Lat Murray

    @Jay – Are you hopping on the Dwayne Washington bandwagon yet?

    Also, should I drop Bortles in favor of Dalton or Prescott for this week? I am afraid the long flight to London messes up Bortles even more

      Jay says:

      @William Hung: Ehhhh. I think that’s about how I feel. Just started thinking about rankings, but off the top of my head, it’s still probably Bortles, then Dalton, then Prescott.

    Hey Jay Wusup.. My team went from suck to pretty damn good in the past week.. 12 team PPR, 3 WR. I’m 2-1 first place cause of points
    Brees
    Robinson
    Emmanuel Sanders
    Moncrief ( out) picked up..
    Crowder
    Freeman
    Blount
    Jordan Reed
    Tevin Coleman
    Crowell
    Dorsett
    Michael Thomas
    V Jackson
    Jesse James
    Now I got 2 questions.. I have #1 waiver. Do i use on Jordan Howard or wait?? Also, would you use Tevin Coleman as a trade chip to a team that needs an Rb since its hard to start him and Freeman or Idk how to set my lineup now..? Lol Sorry I hope you feel what im sayin.. LOL

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @Frank White: I think you wait, you still have plenty of RB depth here. And yeah, I’d shop him around. I feel ya man!

    .5 ppr keeper league

    Rodgers on a bye this week what QB should I target?

    [email protected]
    Matt Ryan vs. Car
    Siemian @TB
    Tannehill @ Cin

    Also, should I lose Eli Rogers for Crowder, Sproles, or hold?

    thanks man!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger: I’d go Dak here. Though, Siemian is really interesting. I’d say Rogers for Sproles.

    Who’s the top Charger WR ROS? This seems like a crap shoot. t benj is high upside but is small and tyrell Williams is a lot
    Bigger and seems to have rivers favour in the RZ. I need a WR and trying to decide which to target. The manager I’m trading with has both and needs a running back. It’s a .5PPR league. Originally wanted to move
    Coleman front benj but now I’m thinking Gio is the better trade (somewhat more of name value and totally game script dependant) thoughts? Thanks. Also I dropped Gates this morning, is zac Miller a better long term add than Hunter? Looking like I’ll have to stream TE ROS since its been a wasteland
    Qb – Russell
    Rb – Lamar
    Rb – Michael
    WR – green
    WR – Parker
    WR – Cruz
    TE – Henry hunter
    Flex – gio
    Bench – T Coleman, Cobb (bye/sucks), moncrief (these two picks killed me), dewayne Washington, booker, Derrick Henry

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @OppoTaco: It is, just because Rivers definitely shares the volume. But it has to be Benjamin right now. I like Tyrell a lot, but he had a couple of drops last week, but Rivers is still targeting him, but I don’t like him as much as Benjamin.

      • Oppo Taco says:
        (link)

        @Jay: He offered Watkins and TBenj for Gio and Cruz. 0.5 PPR. I already have moncrief stashed but I’m thinking i have to pull the trigger on this? Cruz doesn’t look that explosive and is clearly the third option in this dink and dunk Gmen offence

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Oppo Taco: I’m okay with that trade. Risk on both sides.

    Drop Pryor, dorsett, ajayi, Corey Coleman for Kenneth Dixon or crowder half point Ppr?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Josh: I’d drop Coleman for Crowder I think.

  42. Josh says:

    Offer lat Murray for Brandon Marshall in half point Ppr league?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Josh: Yeah, I think that’s fair… but I’d hold on Lat unless you need a WR.

    Pls rank TE’s for .5 ppr ROS:
    Barnidge, D Allen, Z Miller

    D’Angelo worth holding in any league if not a Bell owner?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @a bag of sand: For at least one more week just to see how the transition goes. I’d go Allen, Barnidge, Miller.

    Crazy to dump Matthews for Smallwood? Coach is totally kissing Smallwoods butt, per reports today.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Web: Yeah, I would not drop Mathews for him. But he’s worth a gander if you aren’t losing much.

  45. That's What Speed Do says:

    I’ve been offered McKinnon, Foster, and Crowder for my Maclin and Smallwood…

    My current RB’s are: Peterson (fml), J. Charles (fml), Jennings (fml), Tevin, Crowell, and Smallwood.
    My current WR’s are: Evans, Maclin, Fuller, Hurns, and White.

    The trade has tempting upside… what do you think? It’s a 3 player keeper league with no IR slot, that’s why I still have Adrian on my roster.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      I’m fine with that based on your format, sure.

      @Revi: Feeling Dak right now, but they are close enough to where I might change it while doing rankings tonight.

  48. Marc says:

    In a standard 12 team league, I was offered Julio and Langford for Dez and Christine Michael. My other RBs are CJA, Blount, Ware, Washington (DET and OAK), Booker and my WRs are Marvin Jones, Moncrief, Pryor, and Wallace.

    With the news that Dez has a hairline fracture in his knee (1-3 weeks), I am weakened at WR but my RB options could dwindle too unless one of the backups hits. Blount will not be the same when Brady gets back and Ware will likely be in a timeshare. How do you feel about this trade and what if I got DeAngelo Williams as an upside bench player instead of Langford?

    BTW, my record stands at 2-1. Thanks!

    • Marc says:
      (link)

      @Marc: Also, I’m hesitating because Julio is always gimpy and plays Carolina, Denver, Seattle, and San Diego coming up. Rough stretch…

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @Marc: Yeah, you have to weight it, will Julio help you more during that stretch than your replacement for Dez?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Marc: Yeah, that sounds fine. I think Blount will be okay, but Julio plus Williams helps you make a push while Dez is out.

    Standard scoring 12 man. Zeke, Cooks, and Alf Morris for Jamaal Charles and Antonio Brown. The side acquiring Charles has Ware already. Which side do you like?

  50. William Hung says:

    @Jay: I find myself in a tight spot with my 3rd WR this week. I have to decide between Torrey Smith or Victor Cruz or drop Torrey for someone… I am guessing you are going to tell me to role with Torrey v. the Cowboys since Cruz has the Vikings D, but here are the options that pique my interest:

    Adam Humphries, Kenny Stills, Robert Woods, Tyler Boyd / Brandon LaFell, Brandon Coleman, Devin Funchess or if there is a deep sleeper I don’t know about, let me know…

    I play in a .5 PPR league

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Actually, I have Cruz slightly higher there. LaFell might be interesting, but I’m not taking that risk.

    12 team ppr league…

    McCoy for L. Murray and T Coleman?

    Fair trade? losing McCoy hurts but I lost Abdullah, Vereen, and k. allen to injuries already. need some depth

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @DT: Yeah, that’s fair, I think that helps your team.

    Gio Bernard or Theo Riddick? Feel like either one will end up breaking my heart regardless :(

      Gio breaks our hearts the hardest, but I believe I have him.

  53. Magic says:

    Jay – can start 3 of these 4 WRs (12 team PPR) – Robinson, K Benjamin, Marvin Jones and Hilton.
    All have pretty good match ups but I’m feel spoiled for choice …. High class problems I know boo hoo.
    I’m leaning Robinson, Jones n Hilton (K-Benj vs Atlanta seems sure fire fireworks no? Even after laying an egg against the Vikes ….

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Magic: Hate to say it, but I think Benjamin is the odd man out right now. You make a good point though.

      • Magic says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thanks dude. Don’t believe I’m sitting K-Benjamin but feel good about the other 3 I suppose

    Langford was dropped in my league… not sure if I can roster him since I currently have Dion Lewis and Langford is out 3-4 weeks. Is he still a stash or do I wait and see?
