In what was a pretty subdued game for most of the night, there were plenty of opportunities for the Rams to take advantage of, but they managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory multiple times, with the 49ers capitalizing on those mistakes. While you could probably point to the Gruden curse having a huge effect here (comparing Austin Davis to Drew Brees is nothing short of… questionable, we’ll call it), it was probably a bit much to count on him to drive 90 yards for a game-winning drive. So the pick-six to Dontae Johnson saved everyone the trouble. But, on a lighter note, it was 1999 throwback night to celebrate the “Greatest Show on Turf”. Obviously having Marshall Faulk and Kurt Warner on full display was fantastic timing on a night that saw Zac Stacy run up the middle for a few yards at a time and Austin Davis… not be Kurt Warner. But hey, two dollar hot dogs and three dollar beers seems like a wonderful way to get people to watch the Rams. Because you can’t really do it with just the Rams.

 

49ers – 31, Rams – 17

Colin Kaepernick – 22/36, 343 YDS, 3 TD and 3 CAR, 37 YDS. Colin Kaepernick is actually just a really racist Irish guy named Colin O’Coppernick, who is deeply committed to a lifetime of public partial black-face makeup and tatoo’s.

Frank Gore – 16 CAR, 38 YDS. The MPAA has decided to rate his game “G”, for lack of any excessive Gore.

Anquan Boldin – 7 REC, 94 YDS, 1 TD. I honestly forgot that Boldin was on the 49ers.

Michael Crabtree – 3 REC, 49 YDS, 1 TD. I actually knew that Crabtree was on the 49ers, I just want to forget he exists.

Brandon Lloyd – 1 REC, 80 YDS, 1 TD. Didn’t Aaron Hernandez shoot him?

Austin Davis – 21/42, 236 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT and 1 CAR, -1 YDS. Austin Davis isn’t really “exploding onto the NFL” so much as “slowly and methodically unfolding”, much like expensive giftwrap being carefully undone so it can be re-used at a later time.

Tre Mason – 5 CAR, 40 YDS and 1 REC, 12 YDS. Tre Mason has clearly taken the NFL’s warning about head injuries to heart. It’s now safe to add Mason to your roster, as he clearly showed he’s the most talented back on the team right now.

Zac Stacy – 8 CAR, 17 YDS and 2 REC, 17 YDS. I sensed a great disturbance, as if all the Zac Stacy owners cried out in terror, and… were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

Jared Cook – 4 REC, 74 YDS. A Cook hasn’t been missed that badly since my mom fired all the help.

BREAKING: Knowshon Moreno has been put on season-ending injured reserve with an ACL injury. Looks like Lamar Miller will remain the feature back, so expect him to carry RB2/Flex value when he’s not fumbling or underachieving. For what it’s worth, Miller has been playing at a pretty high level with 63 CAR, 330 YDS and 3 TD, which seems very un-Dolphinish. And it’s not like Damien Williams, Daniel Thomas or Orleans Darkwa (named after a James Bond villain) are any threat at this point either. But, I should note that I trust Miller about as far as I can throw him, and despite rumor, I, in fact, do not lift, bro.

    So my RB corps is: D Murray, Ben Tate, Zac Stacy, Rashad Jennings in a 12 team PPR
    Obviously Stacy and Jennings are huge worries right now and who knows when the Murray party will end? Would it be worth it to drop one/both of Stacy/Jennings for some of the best available off the waiver wire aka Mason, Mckinnon, Hillman, McFadden, Helu?

      @Zac Stacy’s Mom: I dropped Stacy in two PPR leagues for Mason. Have a claim in the 3rd league for him.

      @Dom B: You keep on wanting to pick up Flacco. I’m not convinced on him. If there’s a good trade out there for Wilson, that’s fine, but I wouldn’t feel motivated here.

      @Sange76: yes yes yes. Stacy is looking either hurt or like he won’t be the lead back and do you honestly trust any QB in TB? Bell is a monster. Allen will get his at some point.

    1) Got Graham as my starting TE. Sounds like he might miss a few weeks so I snagged Kelce and Reed to back him up. I really probably should only have one of those backup guys, who are you hanging on to?

    2) Have Matty Ice, Brady, and Eli in a 2 QB league. Not going to play Eli this week and he’s on BYE next week. Drop him and stream the spot during Ice and Brady BYE weeks?

      @Clint:

      On lesser note, do you see Bolden or James White as a worthy pickup w/Ridley gone & Vereen taking up someone else’s roster spot? I’ve got Spiller and Ball wasting away on my bench behind Le’Veon right now. I’m putting in a claim for Lamar Miller, dropping Moreno in the process, but was debating whether Bolden or White could be a surprise worthy of a claim since Vereen doesn’t seem to be able to get it done between the tackles.

      • Jay

        Jay says:

        @Clint: Maybe Boldin. Miller is the better buy there.

      • Scooter G says:
        (link)

        @Aubrey Plaza’s Pillow:

        You get 2 points for a team win and -1 points for a loss and additional points based on margin of victory. 8 if the team wins by 25 or more and and -3 if the team loses by that much…. It doesn’t really make a big difference and is certainly less important than drafting a D/ST or Kicker IMO.

    Jay i think it would be helpful for everyone commenting if you went through your thoughts on Stacy vs Cunningham vs Tre – what would you do if you owned Stacy, what about if you didnt own Stacy

    Is Stacy a sell? Who’s the Stacy handcuff? Is Stacy hurt and that’s why they limited him? Why does he look so tentative hitting the hole? – that was my takeaway

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: Subtract out Masons 1 24yrd run and hes down loser to 4 ypc

      Jay says:

      @Zandy: I just figure people are going to ask me anyhow. And in Mason’s blurb, I mentioned that I’m going all in. If that means dropping Stacy for Mason, I’m fine with that.

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Gotcha, thanks! haha “helpful for everyone commenting” was code word for me!

        As a Stacy owner, I guess I def waiver claim Tre and drop Cunningham for him? In the meantime try to actively trade Stacy?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Zandy: Naw, I just figured if any more extrapolation was needed, someone would ask. In your specific case, I’d hold Stacy (I doubt there’s any value in trade there), but yes, drop Cunningham for Mason.

          • Zandy says:
            (link)

            in my shallow league 0.5PPR where I own Stacy Foster Jennings Lamar Asiata AP AndreWill – are you dropping asiata for Tre? Do you prefer Tre over Jeremy Hill or Crow? (also on waivers)

            Also do you see a scenario where Id ever start ODB over AndreJ, Wallace or Crabtree? (when I only need to start 2)

    Hey Jay, I was offered Eric Decker for my Sanu (I just picked him up last week) in my 10team non-ppr. He offered this mainly cause I’m a Jet fan (& we also just completed a trade of my Wallace for his Cruz/A Johnson — I dropped Cruz for Holmes already & am lucky I got A Johnson as well). Anyways, I know you mentioned sell high on Sanu & here is my opportunity. My roster is as follows;

    QB-Rodgers
    WR- Cobb, Edelman, A. Johnson, Sanu, Beckham, Holmes
    RB- Murray, R. Jennings, A. Williams, Matthews, Ingram, McKinnon
    TE-Witten
    D-Detroit
    K-Dawson

    Now I’m not sure Decker is worth it for Sanu, but his roster is as follows, maybe I could offer Sanu for one of his other guys…

    QB- Rivers
    WR-Nelson, Wallace, Hopkins, J Jones, Decker
    RB-Forsett, Bell, McCoy, Ivory, P Thomas, Stacy
    TE-Olsen, Reed

    So do I counter-offer the Sanu for Decker?

    Also, Mason, Crowell, A Robinson, Hillman (waivers), Hunter (waivers), & Patterson (waivers) are available…hold or pickup one of those guys for my bench?

    THANKS AS ALWAYS, YOUR THE BEST (I’M TIED FOR 1ST WITH YOUR HELP!)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Nick: Honestly, they are pretty close for me, but I’d give the edge to Sanu as long as Jones is out. The QB situation in NY, as you know, is less than spectacular.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Jay: How about my other questions regarding a counter offer (based on rosters above) as well as the free agent/waiver wire pool….you see anything there worthy of stashing??

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

    How would you rank T. Smith, Patterson, and Hopkins ROS (non-ppr), and would you trade away Cobb for any two of those WRs?

    so on my biggest headache std league
    I have
    WR: AndreJ Wallace Wright
    RB: Stacy Doug Ingram McKinnon Pierre Khiry Storm Cunningham Rainey
    Need to start 2 rbs 2 wrs and a flex

    Just got offered Percy for Stacy? thoughts
    He also has Dez, Cobb, Wheaton
    would you try to do Wallace Stacy for Cobb instead?
    what about stacy romo for percy matt ryan?

    *I will be dropping Cunningham Rainey for Tre and whatever other waiver pickup of the week (Bolden, Juwan, White or Andre Homes, Davnata, Lefell)

    • Jay

      @Zandy: I’d want Percy there. Wallace and Stacy for Cobb seems like the better deal there. And I’m fine with those drops.

    Hey jay w/ Ertz having a bye this week look to the waiver to add jordan Reed or trade my Eli manning for either witten or Vernon Davis? I also have brady & romo the witten / davis is from one owner who needs a QB.

    Next potential trade everyone else is fine at QB or has a back up ; I could trade one of my wr’s or rbs to this owner who has Heath miller
    (He also has Ebron)

    Next up this owner has Dwayne Allen, kelce & greg Olsen but he may Jack the trade up he recently asked for my demaryius thomas for his bernard Pierce – he just dropped Pierce lol.

    Next this owner who I’m facing this week has jared cook, antonio gates & Tim wright

    Lastly this owner has both Gronk & Delanie walker.

    Here’s my team

    RbS- gio bernard, ahmad Bradshaw, tate, jeremy hill, storm, & Oliver.

    Wrs: Demaryius thomas, Crabtree, Kelvin benjamin, cordarrelle patterson, n

    Hey Jay

    I have the #2 waiver claim this week looking to pick up Tre Mason, Terrence Williams (was dropped), Andre Holmes, and Antone Smith (not high on him though)…who should I use my claim on? And thoughts on who I drop to make the add? I like the idea of adding both Tre and Terrence just not sure who I should part with…

    QB- Rodgers
    WR- Jordy
    WR- Percy
    RB- DeMarco
    RB- Bradshaw
    TE- Kelce
    W/R/T- Keenan
    BN- Zac Stacy, Khiry, Montee, Juwan Thompson, T Wright

    K- Parkey
    DEF- HOUSTON and BUFFALO

    Week 9 Rodgers is on his bye and T Brady was dropped. Pats play the Broncos that week which I think will be a shoot out…should I be looking to add Brady or just wait to see who is out there more towards week 9?

    Thanks man!

  55. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
    (link)

    bunch ?’s mostly PPR.
    1. worst 2 RB are taliaferro/hill. start 2 only. i have 6. drop just one of these or both for this order
    mason/starks/rainey/randle? I would think hill worth more than the last 3, but taliaferro might be worth less than those.
    2. start 2 RB and 1 flex. i have murray/ivory/stacy/cunningham/ingram. from above first move would be to drop cunningham for mason, but if i miss mason do i keep cunningham over starks/pierce/randle? RB maven thinks randle/dunbar split it if murray gets hurt (if not i would think he’d be worth more to murray owner)
    3. as an owner of charles in start 2 RB and no flex i know i can get knile with no waiver (dropping ridley), but i should i use a #5 waiver for mason before doing that? i have ridley/a.will/miller/charles/bell (PIT)

    in other news MORENO OUT FOR YEAR! YEAH! as Miller owner in at least 2 places this is great, let’s see those idiots not give him at least 18 carries a game now! (he’s pretty much never not had a good game when they give him carries)

        (link)

        @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: 5
        dynasty, keep all of a.will/bradshaw/c.michael/peterson/hyde over mason? could also drop backup TE ASJ for mason (i have orange julius as well), other possibly useful dynasty TE’s are toliolo/t.wright/rudolph. this looks like an ASJ drop, have less to lose that way probably. Julius Thomas is young guy too. I have both regular flex (TE allowed) and super flex (with 3 QB’s on team)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey: 1. Drop Talia for Mason. 2. Get Starks over Cunningham. Randle has his own problems right now. 3. Try for Mason.

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        @Jay: in 1. keep talia over those others if i don’t get mason? in 2 if my other waiver claim (weekly waivers) is to drop o.daniels for reed, is the TE waiver first or 2nd to mason one? (my default is to shore up starting position)

    1. Shoud I hold Spiller and Sankey or drop for L. Miller, A. Smith, Ivory, PT, McKinnon, Hillman, Mason, Cunningham, B(OUT), Mathews(OuT)

    Let me lay it down for you. You ain’t steered me wrong yet.
    Have an offer of my k Benjamin (7th rd keeper) and zac Stacey(13 rd keeper) for l bell (6th rd keeper) and Keenan Allen. My buddy is thinking it over. He needs a WR big time.
    Now, I know he’s into Julio Jones, who’s health is always iffy…but the guy is a beast when he plays.
    If he slaps down the k benj offer, do I offer Julio for a bell/or shady plus a WR package? Is that worth it?
    His assets on the block seem to be shaDy McCoy, L bell , Keenan Allen, j hunter, garçon.

    What’s my best/most likely to be accepted counteroffer if need be to land a big RB using my WRs?

    did they really have those prices at that game? wish i would’ve known that in advance. Yeah, STL’s got their PR agents a bit busy currently trying to make outsiders think their cops aren’t actually no better than 90’s LA cops (another guy shot and killed a few days ago, was chased by off duty cop for doing nothing more than standing outside convenience store, got into tussle in alley with that person, later cops claimed guy shot at cop first, of course since it was in alley at night a gun from the suspect was produced later). i could’ve gone to that game.

        @Jay: WOW, i guess they wanted to make it look like RAMS games are well attended (and they are, considering hot utterly horrible that team has been for about 10 years or so now, but not well compared to other well attended NFL games). Wish this would’ve been marketed well to my demographic (probably not easy to do for a person who dodges commercials like a plague of rats). Had i been at a bar on Sat-Sun i probably would’ve overheard this.

    first time the hottest pickup of week here at Razzball seemed to have no correlation with my fairly competitive league’s waivered pickups. I actually was 8th and got IND (dropping CIN) first, and still got Mason (dropping Taliaferro). pickups that went before Mason were ones such as holmes/randle (NYG)/DAL (who actually average 12.5 pts this year)/CHI (14.17 average)/adams/murphy.

    And thanks for the help on the waiver wire yesterday and with everything all year so far

    Another quick question same league
    I ended up offering garcon and reed for dez and am waiting for a reply
    He also has benjamin if he rejects with no counter is garcon and reed too much for kelvin? I have olsen and cam if that matters or would you actually do cobb and reed for dez which would actually help with the week 9 bye (calvin lacy cobb) but i am also playing the worst team that week so it may not end up mattering
    Wound up not so quick u are awesome Sky was great last year, dare i say u are significantly better

      @Barker: I’d try Fitz for Mck. I like that Dez deal for you. It’s a bit too much for Benjamin, would rather hold on Garcon.

      Haha, don’t tell Sky! (He’s fantastic too though.)

        @Jay:i asked sky about both trades as well he said to try garcon before williams then fitz for mck which doesnt seem crazy with how terrible garcon has been

        But should i try for mck whether i get dez or not

        Rbs lacy murray sankey mason
        Wrs calvin cobb garcon gordon fitz williams

          @Barker: I.E. Do i need RB help and is mckinnon the guy to target ?

            @Barker: and to wrap it up if i get dez should i not try to get mck with terrance williams as it would be redundant to have both cowboys receivers?

            @Barker: I don’t think it’s Asiata ROS.

    Delanie was just dropped in my league Eddie Royal was dropped as well

    I’m tempted to drop Montee or Stacy at this point to add Delanie, thoughts?

    A Rodgers, Jordy, Percy, Keenan, Terrance, DeMarco, Bradshaw, Khiry, Tre Mason, Crowell, Stacy, Montee, and Kelce…Prater and Bills

    Also liking the idea of stashing Juwan and T Wright.

    thanks man!

      @ryanoger: Yeah, droping Stacy is fine if you need that TE. To be fair though, I think you’re fine with Kelce.
