So there we have it, one week in the books and I already hate all but one of my fantasy teams. I mean I have eight, one would think I should at least like two, maybe even three, but noooooooooo… I like one. Is it me or is Fantasy Football the most frustrating thing in the world? All it takes is one week and you realize your team is awful, all your sleepers are overhyped busts, and the guys you avoided are all-pros. Two bench players and one of your first five picks is done for the season. Your quarterback looks like he couldn’t make the Montreal Alouettes, all of your running backs are on the losing end of their respective committees, and the season just started. Fantasy Football is like dating the Natasha Henstridge’s character in Species. She’s beautiful, she knows her way around for a good time, and is eager to mate. This is what I like to call the honeymoon phase following the draft. Then you find out she’s trying to mate so she can produce offspring to kill off the human race, and will probably puncture your skull with her tongue as soon as she has a chance. So let’s call the “Puncture Your Skull With Her Tongue” phase Week 1. Mostly because that’s how it feels, but also because “Puncture Your Skull With Her Tongue” phase is a mouthful and Week 1 is just much shorter. So what can we do but hang our heads in shame and head to the wire to seek out suitable replacements? Here’s some of the claims I’m placing to save my fleet of sinking ships…

Marcus Mariota (Y 46% owned – Espn 35.8%) – Jameis who? It’s been one week and every reactionary fantasy pert worth his weight in Reese’s Pieces is ready to end the fight and hand the decision to Marriota and the Titans. I have to say I really want to. I’m not a Jameis guy and I always thought Marriota had the acumen and work ethic to do what was needed to excel (or at least be useable) at the next level. Well after throwing for 4 TD’s and looking miles better than Winston on the opposing side I’m suggesting a speculative buy. With a Browns defense that made the Jets look like the 2007 Patriots coming up next. Marriota could be an excellent start in deeper leagues and dailies.

David Johnson (Y 21%  Espn 37.1%) – I can’t tell you that Johnson will be the starting RB against the Bears this week, or that he will be handling the majority of the carries for the Cards. I can’t tell you if he’ll even see the field for more than 10 snaps. Because Bruce Arians is stupid and thinks it’s “unhealthy” to throw rookies into prominent roles. I guess Bruce doesn’t care that in his single touch he took the ball to the house for the game sealing touchdown, or that he was their best back in the preseason. He also doesn’t care that Chris Johnson is awful and his only other option with starter Andre Ellington on the shelf for three weeks with a PCL injury. All Bruce Arias cares about is wearing a stupid hat and even stupider hipster glasses. Bruce Arais is an asshole, but even assholes figure it out. Eventually… Let’s just hold out hope it only takes a few snaps for old Brucey boy to figure it out. Pickup Johnson if he’s available. He’s only owned in about 21% of Yahoo leagues at the moment.

Tyrod Taylor (Y 10% Espn 12.1%) – I think Tehol calls him the Tygod or the Rodfather or the Based God of Buffalo, or something like that. But I got to be honest, Tyrod looked excellent. If the game hadn’t been sealed in the first quarter he might have been in for a huge fantasy day. This week he faces a New England defense that allowed 464 total yards to Pittsburgh and looked very susceptible to the big play in both the passing and running game. (Remember I’m a Patriots honk and I’m writing this.) But the Rodfather could be in for a huge week. Many will tell you to stay away based on some cliche about Bill Belichick defenses against a first year starter, but that’s just a fancy way of saying I’m scared to make a bold statement. We here at Razzball like bold. We only eat bullseye BBQ sauce and all really appreciate Donald Trump for his honest candor. We’re so bold we believe shirts are optional and if we do wear shirts they must have bold bright colors. Hell, sometimes we eat Bullseye BBQ sauce while wearing boldly colored Donald Trump brand shirts, but that’s only for lunches following a hardcore Macy’s shopping trip. We also do things like predict Bills victories over the Pats in week 2 and 20 point scoring days for Tyrod Taylor.

Danny Woodhead (Y 50% Espn 68.4%) – I’m in love with the Woodhead, I’m not ashamed to admit it. The man is a miniature God and should be celebrated in the pantheon of great short athletes. Seriously, a lot of high schools have running backs on their freshman team bigger than Woodhead. Doesn’t matter when you have the Belichick/Patriots magic dust. Woodhead has a whole satchel of that magic dust and he took it to Sam Diego, or Whale’s Vagina as I call it. When healthy all this kid does is catch footballs and score touchdowns. He saw one less touch than first round pick Melvin Gordon, and received the bulk of the redzone work. What else do you need to know? Woodhead could be a PPR stalwart going forward. If you’re playing in that format and you’re looking for a flex play or a little (literally) bench depth, Woodhead is your man.

Donte Moncrief (Yahoo 12% Espn 31%) – It looks as though T.Y. Hilton should be a go for Monday night, but if something changes over the next few days and Hilton has a setback, Moncrief could be in for a big night. When Hilton went down with a knee bruise on Sunday, his mom immediately grabbed him an ice pack and blew on his boo-boo. While in the actual game Moncrief not Andre Johnson was the one picking up the slack. Moncrief and his serious big play ability are an intriguing option for as long as Hilton is out. Problem is there’s a catch. There’s always a catch right? He faces Darrell Revis and the Jets D on Monday. So the matchup could be tricky. The best part of this whole Hilton story is the fact that Captain Space Cadet, otherwise known as Colts owner Jim Irsay, came out and said that he expected Hilton to miss a few weeks. Which in turn led to the team releasing a far more ambiguous statement saying that he was day to day and potentially available for Monday. Do people wonder why the Colts always underachieve? It’s called organizational incompetence. Or maybe that’s the name of Irsay’s party boat, I’m confused.

    Have ertz vs Dallas next week, use a waiver on Ladarius green and drop clay or just hold and hope no one claims greene.

    Also ppr start 2 recievers 2 rb and flex. Who do I drop for moncrief and use waiver on him?

    Have odell,hopkins,desean,hurns,funchess
    Murray,Doug Martin,foster, denard

    Howdy Ralph ! Getting ready for week 2, I’m in a .5 PPR league who should be my top waiver add?

    Carson Palmer, Philip Dorsett, Chris Johnson
    Id be dropping Christine Michael.

    Or go with the TE as a top add; Fleener, Crockett Gilmore or Ladarius green. Richard Rodgers would be the drop, but not sure I just give Rodgers one more week?

    My team:

    QB: tannehill

    RB1: hill
    RB2: Lamar miller

    WR1: demaryius Thomas
    WR:brandin cooks
    WR3: Andre Johnson

    TE: Richard Rodgers

    Flex: Doug Martin

    D: Vikings

    My WR are AJ, Edelman, Andre Johnson, Fitzgerald, and Rowdy Roddy.

    Old and decrepit beyond Edelman.

    I have a TE/WR flex spot, and I have Olson as my primary TE. Should I look to add another TE that can get some volume like Cooks or ASJ instead of one of the latter 3 WR?

    nice write up Ralph. carlos hyde saved my ass this week. i was down 29 points with hyde left to play and he dropped a 30.
    anyways.

    12 team- 2 QB. Standard scoring.
    Here’s my team:
    QB: Brady, tannehill

    RB: Hyde, cj Anderson, Sankey, gio Bernard
    TE: Jordan Cameron

      @Barker: the big question is Dez. You for sure need at add a wideout and Lynch is the best player in the deal. I think I’d do it. I’d take Mathews too though.

      • Johnny Boy says:
        (link)

        @Ralph Lifshitz: Idk I just have a bad feeling about him after a shitty year and shitty first game and I own him in my other league already, if he sucks it could mean my whole fantasy football season. And I could see Johnson and Abdullah both being strong RB2s by the end of the year. It’s such a tough call for me, I have Le’veon and Gurley waiting in the wings so my team would basically be Bell, Gurley, Megatron, Cobb, Cooks, and flex would be Mike Wallace, Kelce TE, and Tannehill/Cam Newton QB. That sounds really good on paper in a 12 team league actually. I’m just conflicted…

  8. DT2 says:

    0.25PPR + returns. 14-team league.

    Should I drop Hankerson for Dunbar?

    I would like to spend
    16$ on Terrance W, dropping Donnell

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          @Moscowitz: eifert or rivers will go for closer to the probably 8 times more than anybody would pay for west price. I never like to advise people to get a 2nd TE, but since we’re comparing it to a RB #8 or #9 here, spend the money on Eifert and Rivers, maybe $1 on west.

  12. Happyharry says:

    Hey Man. Need help, lost Dez, who’s the best WR free agent pick up? T.Williams, J.Jones, S.Johnson or R. Randle.

    • Moscowitz says:
      (link)

      @Happyharry: Well i heard of Dez to be out about 8 weeks. That makes T. Williams to the Cowboys nr. 1 WR for half a season. I would go TWill. My second choice would be s. johnson.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Happyharry: I like Williams and then James Jones. I think people underestimate his comfort level with Rodgers

  13. friar says:
    (link)

    In a 14-team non-ppr league, I went WR late in the draft and now have a pretty weak set of receivers (I start 2 each week, since my flex is typically a RB):

    WR: Wallace, S. Smith, James Jones, Roddy, Colston

    Should I drop someone (Colston?) for Moncrief? Other WRs available include Harvin, Washington, and Beasley.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @friar: Colston for Moncrief

  14. Kneely says:
    (link)

    Rotoworld is touting Beasley as a WR3 (in PPR leagues) while Dez is out. While I agree that his targets will increase significantly, I’m skeptical. Thoughts?
    Jordan Reed or ASJ in PPR? Are both legit TE1’s going forward?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Kneely: Yeah I thought about Beasley as an option to feature here. Is he a WR3? In 14 team sure, 12 team maybe. I’m a little skeptical too.

      Yeah I think both are legit options. Green is a better option than both, but either one could break out. ASJ has the upside

  16. Nick says:
    (link)

    in FAAB waivers 10 team league, what would you bid for L Green &/or Moncreif? Green would be my backup to M Bennett (dropping O Daniels) & Moncreif would be insurance to TY but I have Garcon to plug & play for week 2 if Ty is out..

    Moncrief might not even be used on my team since he will be going up against Revis in week 2 & Ty should be back by week 3 the latest..so thinking lean on a heavy bid for L Green ($14 or even higher?) & throw a measly $5-$10 bid out for Moncreif in case nobody in my 10-team snags him (highly unlikely but you dont lose money if you dont win the bid)

    I was offered C.J. Anderson for Arian Foster.

    With Foster’s accelerated timeline for return, Anderson’s toe, and Hillman looking like he could take a larger portion of touches going forward, is it insane that I’m hesitating on pulling the trigger here?

      @muddy: That’s tough I’m not backing off of my love for Anderson. I think people are reading too much into one game. He looks probable for Thursday so the toe shouldnt be a huge concern. Hillman’s usage was troublesome but it could be the flow of that game coupled with the injury. Ravens were a tough matchup all around.

      @David: Yeah I could see Sims haven’t the better season. Gore is really the guy. I think he gets the meaningful work.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: Gore is already hurt and played through it.

          @The Harrow: It was calf cramps nothing too serious.

      @David: would have a lot to do with whether you need guaranteed production or have room to gamble on longer shot upside. Specifically how many RB you have yourself, and how many other teams (and how many other teams) have.

    14 team PPR. We start 2 2 1. I’m set at WR and Flex.. Julio, Beckham and J. Matthews. My WR bench depth is only Devante Parker and Funchess. Would you hold on to these guys or try to grab someone like Harvin, T. Austin, Kearse or Moncrief.

    From reading above it looks like you favor Woodhead over J. Randle for this upcoming week. I went with Woodhead over Randle this week, but it looks like Randle might be more involved than we first thought? I’m torn on which one to start.

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @Ty: If it’s PPR I’m going Woodhead.

      I’d go after Harvin and Moncrief. Call me crazy but I think Harvin could be deployed in a whole bunch of ways in Buffalo.

        @Ralph Lifshitz: I was thinking the same thing with harvin, thanks!

    Receivers are Odell, Hopkins , desean , funchess , hurns. Use waiver on moncrief. Ppr start 2 receiver 1 flex

      @Db: Yeah if you ditch Funchess for Moncrief I’d be with it

    Would u drop Allen Robinson to pick up Brandon Coleman, Stevie Johnson, or Percy harvin

    Karlos williams , dion Lewis or hillman to pick up
    10 team standard

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:
      (link)

      @Mike: Dion Lewis. I need to see Hillman get a prominent role for more than a couple weeks. In a 10 team only Lewis has value. If he holds onto the ball he’ll be the best fantasy back from the Pats backfield.

  36. Kendrick Llama says:

    Would you drop Matt Jones or Josh Robinson (handcuff to gore) for Dunbar in PPR?

    • Ralph Lifshitz

      Ralph Lifshitz says:

      @Kendrick Llama: Robinson yes. Bradshaw will be the cuff soon enough.

      • Kendrick Llama says:

        @Ralph Lifshitz: you really think so? Ive heard they like Robinson …

          @Kendrick Llama: Yeah I think he gets the looks. Unless he’s so broken that he’s now a nub.

    I love Razzball, but Rotoworld’s Waiver Wire column is much more substantial. They highlight about 5 players at each position, while Razzball highlight 5 players total each week.
    That being said, you guys blow Rotoworld out of the water in just about every other aspect.

      @Kneely: Challenge accepted!

      My wife had a baby yesterday, I’m answering this question from a hospital room. I thought I’d focus on a larger pool of pickups in the coming weeks. Wanted to identify the right players to focus claims on in the early going.
