“I need a new helmet. OMAHA. Yeah, that’s right, my head’s growing at a rapid rate. OMAHA. ROMO. ELWAY. OMAHA. New helmet on one! SET. OMAHA.”

Well, it would be hard for me to analyze this game with an unbiased viewpoint, seeing as how I’m pretty obvious homer. But hey, at least I’m obvious. That being said, I’d have to say that Mike Carey and myself could have probably been best friends. Essentially every decision he called last night was the opposite of what the refs decided, because, let’s be honest here, the officiating was complete sh*t. A crucial special teams fumble by Denver was called back, even though replays clearly showed the ball moving before the player was down, allowing Petyon Manning to drive for a touchdown before the half. In the third quarter, a Philip Rivers interception that was caught on the ground, with movement, was not overturned. A crucial redzone interception by Eric Weddle was called back because of a defensive holding penalty, which, might I add, was way before the 5-yard mark. And then later, a Juwan Thompson touchdown was confirmed, even though he didn’t break the plane… so… whatever. I suppose things like this happen. At the very least, Ronnie Hillman was negated something like 80 fantasy points, and the Broncos seemed more interested in trolling fantasy players than by any other team I’d seen in recent memory. So even though Denver won, I’m pretty sure most of us lost. Including my liver. What can I say? Misery loves company…

 

Chargers – 21, Broncos – 35

Peyton Manning – 25/35, 286 YDS, 3 TD. A few weeks after Manning retires, I swear that head of his is will just swell up and explode all over the place. That helmet has been the only thing keeping it in all these years. In other news, when the Chargers play him next, the strategy should be to hang up some fake Super Bowl posters.

Ronnie Hillman – 20 CAR, 109 YDS and 3 REC, 29 YDS. I just can’t believe that Denver ended up signing another running back named Ronnie Hillman after the first one was just so terrible. Also, I’m pretty sure Montee Ball will never touch the ball again.

Juwan Thompson – 7 CAR, 24 YDS, 2 TD. Hey. That’s not Ronnie Hillman.

Emmanuel Sanders – 9 REC, 120 YDS, 3 TD. My condolences, those of you who are facing off against a team who actually started him.

Philip Rivers – 30/41, 252 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT and 1 CAR, 17 YDS. I would call Rivers efficient and explosive. And that’s just his reproductive capabilities…

Branden Oliver – 13 CAR, 36 YDS and 7 REC, 27 YDS. What can I say? The Broncos were Oliver Brandon. (Farts, leaves room.)

Keenan Allen – 9 REC, 73 YDS, 1 TD. I’ve been hinting at this for a while. Trust me, I know the Ryan Mathews hill is hard to climb, but I’d like to say all my other Chargers calls were right at least most of the time, some of the times, except for those other times. Exactly.

Antonio Gates – 5 REC, 54 YDS, 2 TD. Antonio Gates is on pace to have the best statistical season of his career. Just wanted to throw that out there.

    in 20 team dynasty with huge benches i was able to get mccoy since the guy who beat me to mccoy went with clipboard jesus, and then he dropped clipboard jesus for a safety. I thought mettenberger was already owned, but he had been dropped. I probably would’ve been better off with only 2 of cousins/mccoy/RG3 and mettenberger (certainly for that bye WAS has coming up), so now, when RG3 comes back i guess cousins is the drop (i’ll wait for that to actually happen of course, wouldn’t want RG3 to not come back healthy, and mccoy get hurt, leaving me with 0 QB’s). I could even grab Mallett after RG3 comes back if i didn’t mind using 3 roster spots for QB’s.
    2. At end of season i probably should go into end of year with only starter at WAS and Mallett as is anyway, right?

      @goodfold2: Yeah, agreed with everything you said here.

    yeah, Gates having his best season ever is depressing for those of us that are literally watching (and playing against) the type of owners who thought this might actually happen, since they remember him as being great, and why shouldn’t he still be. It’s like people who picked up that guy in baseball since he had a great 1 day to start the season this year (i forgot his name it’s so bad), and still held him for at least a month. whoever i’m thinking of played for either BOS or NYY this year at start of year, maybe both. I’m not talking about owners who got him very cheap this year and knew the only reason they got him is that he should be cheap. I could’ve been one of you. Last time i touched him was like 2 years ago when the overpay (at the time) could’ve been even half sane to believe it was worth it. He used to cost that year about what Orange Julius did this year, but he most certainly did NOT perform at that level that year (foot injury, or ankle)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Crapshoot Kershaw: Well, to be fair, he finished in the top-10 at TE last season as well, but you’re right in that his name value carries weight here. That being said, there were a lot of people jumping on the Green wagon way too soon.

  3. DILinator says:
    (link)

    I don’t quite understand your comment about Emmanuel Sanders… It seems to imply that starting him is anything other than a weekly move. I’ve started him every week, and except for Week 6 against the Jets, he’s contributed 10+ points (PPR). With Megatron out, he’s actually been my best and most consistant WR on that (soon to be, thanks to the Manning to Sanders hook-up last night!) 6-2 team. Are you really suggesting he’s NOT an every week start?

    • Random Dude says:
      (link)

      @DILinator: I noticed that as well… But considering Sanders is a weekly Top 20 player in his rankings, I don’t think he meant he’s not an every week start.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @DILinator: I think you’re reading to much into it. He’s essentially Terrance Williams, and it’s not wild to think he ended up on some benches this week. His last two games, he had 3 REC, and 40 YDS…

    • Crapshoot Kershaw says:
      (link)

      @DILinator: he’s certainly not a guy who would’ve been anywhere near expected to get 3 TD’s and over 100 yards, i can attest to that, since i’ll lose due to it.

    Jay is Ronnie Hillman a RB1 for ros? Will Denver put Ball back in the starting lineup when he returns? Hillman looks awesome in that offense. Seems like a perfect fit.

    My WR situation is… eh… not good. I just need to cobble together 3 to start this week.

    I have:

    Roddy White vs DET

    Hakeem Nicks @ PIT
    Hartline @ JAX
    John Brown vs PHI
    Boykin @ NO
    Jermaine Kearse @ CAR

    Thanks

    I’m really struggling with four good choices at RB this week – need to start three (.5 PPR):

    Lacy @ NO
    Bradshaw @ PIT
    McKinnon @ TB
    Joique @ ATL

    Your rankings say it’s between Lacy and Bradshaw (to sit), which I agree with, but I can’t make the decision for the life of me! (is that a real expression? sounds funny…)

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @vinodole: Makes sense. If that’s the case, I’d go Lacy.

      • vinodole says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Yea I agree – especially with Richardson’s hammy concerns… although Lacy did say he wants to have the “one of the biggest games of my life” since he’s from Louisiana…

        One more for you – pick two out of Larry Fitz, Jimmy Graham and Jordan Reed (WR/TE slot). I was benching Jimmy but now I’m leaning towards starting the two TEs

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @vinodole: Yeah, double check my Sunday morning rankings. Bell might even be the odd man out here. Same with Graham, I think we’ll have a better idea of how active he’ll be. Reed over Fitz right now.

    10 team PPR League with return yards. From the group below, pick three to start at flex this week. The other two players will be dropped to add a K and DEF:
    D. Allen, D. Robinson, Sproles, B. Brown, A. “Boobie” Dixon.

    I have J. Graham, so Allen is tempting to cut loose, but I think he’s the best player out of those 5.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @KnileIsNotJustA… I’d go with Robinson, Sproles and Dixon. I agree with Allen’s upside, but he’s off and on so far.

  16. Random Dude says:
    (link)

    Jay, just to comment on your Terrance Williams vs. Emmanuel Sanders comment above… Would you put Sanders considerably above Williams in PPR though?

    Personally, I think Sanders dominates him in PPR due to the number of catches he can get in that offense. Sure, he had 2 weeks of 3 catches, but he also had games with 6, 8, 11, and 7 catches before those. Williams has only had more than 2 catches in 2 games. I’m probably a bit on the conservative side though and don’t like TD dependency out of my WRs in PPR.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Random Dude: Yes, it was a fast and loose comp. I like both of them, but I only meant it in terms that they are both WR2’s with monster WR1’s and a plethora of other weapons (JT, Welker and WItten, Murray)

    Denard, Cecil, Torrey Smith, Larry Fitz or D’Andre Hopkins?

    Also, hold out for Jimmy or just go with Dwayne Allen? Jimmy G screwed me last week..0 pts!

    12 team .5ppr keeper

    Qb cutler, kaep
    RB forte,
    RB??? r Jennings, denard Robinson, Jeremy hill, Anthony Dixon
    WR Julio,
    WR??? v jax, k Benjamin, Andre Holmes
    TE witten, ertz
    Flex ???
    D philly. New England

    Who is my RB 2with Jennings out/bye and who should my WR 2 and Flex be this week?
    Leaning towards Robinson, v jax, and k benj for those spots but Dixon is tempting somewhere in the mix…

    Also anyone to drop to take a shot of Charles Sims (pats d maybe, with Philly bye week over and chandler jones out?)

    Thanks!!!

      @Sange76: I’m tempted with Dixon, but I like your mix there.

      • Sange76 says:

        @Jay:

        Thanks! I fear the Bryce brown express taking some carries away from Dixon very soon.

        How about dropping anyone, most likely Pats D, for a shot on Charles Sims? Or not even worth it?

    I you had to make a decision today (you don’t, but let’s pretend for a minute), how would you rank these QBs as 1-week pickups for Week 9?

    – Fitzpatrick vs Phi
    – A. Smith vs NYJ
    – Palmer @ Dal
    – Bortles @ Cin
    – Bridgewater vs Wsh

    The Bucs (@Cle), Redskins (@Min), and Browns (vs TB) QBs are also available, but picking one of them would require knowing who the starter will be in Week 9, which seems difficult.

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @friar: The Bridgewater match up there intrigues me.

      • friar says:
        (link)

        @Jay: I’ll be without a QB next week (as will several other teams, including my opponent) and, since I’m in first place and will be last on the waiver wire, I probably won’t get my first choice if I wait until Tuesday.

        Is Bridgewater far enough ahead of the next best options that you’d drop Patterson, Rainey, or Donnell (all bench players) this week in order to get my pick of the QB streamers?

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @friar: I’d drop Rainey.

    Hi Jay,
    I do have a league where I drafted Manning and your lead just inspired me to change my team name to: Omaha Omaha

      @Pops: Nice!

    I started Sanders in a league I own him and by Yahoo am almost still slated to lose haha.

    2-3 of my opponents also own Sanders.
    Meh.

    Am I the only one who thinks that Rivers had a productive 21 point fantasy game?

    Lastly,

    I’m going against a team who is starting Mendenhall. Didn’t he retire? HA, obviously he’s given up and I have most points for but keep running into 100 point per week opponents. Ironically, he has Bree’s, Martin, DEF and Kicker left cause he is starting all injured or bye week players, BUT, he has Sanders

    I started Oliver and Allen, if I lose, would you call it quits? That would be a complete embarrassment yet impossible unless Martin goes for 30, 30 Bree’s, 10 K and 20 DEF.

    Haha. That’s a wrap. Thanks for the rundown!!

      @Tarman Got Him: Rivers did just fine. He’s been a top-5 QB all season, maybe top-3.

      Never give up, never surrender!

    The refs 100% boned you guys Jay, it was atrocious. So injuries and some bad picks have led to me to this q, Denard Robinson or Travaris Cadet in PPR? Ick…

      @Duke: Robinson. And yeah, it was a bad officiating game. Chargers didn’t do everything right, but just crucial moments there…

    Jay,

    Am I rolling with Kelce or Delanie this week with them be so close on the week 8 rankings? Mettenberger might have to throw a lot and be looking Delanie’s way all day. Thoughts? Dwayne is a FA and he is so tempting to grab as well.

    thank man

    • ryanoger says:
      (link)

      @ryanoger:

      AND

      ROS 10 team .5 PPR league should I add Mike Evans or Justin Hunter?

      thanks so much

    • Jay

      Jay says:

      @ryanoger: Delanie, sure. Good logic there.

      • ryanoger says:
        (link)

        @Jay:

        Thanks Jay!

        You think I should drop someone on my bench to pick up Mike Evans or hold? Also thinking week 9 already with the Bills on a bye should I pick up Philly @HOU? Or wait and see how they fair this week?

        Rodgers, Jordy, Keenan, Demarco, Bradshaw, Delanie, Tre Mason

        bench
        Kelce, Terrence, Percy, Montee, The Nard Dog, Tannehill (for next week), IR Charles Sims

    having already lost pitta in one league, now daniels is gone too (and this just happened late week too), only noticed since yahoo team projection just dropped by 10, rankings say paul over harbor, but both for ROS and i would think in general, since harbor actually is 11th overall TE at per game pts, i should go harbor here? literally the only 2 TE’s left are these 2, all others are worse (unless ASJ were to become relevant all of a sudden). i’m guessing ranking is from MIA being great in general and 7th against TE’s, but DAL isn’t that far behind at 14th; and at least harbor is starter. OBV this becomes Paul if/when reed gets hurt again no matter what.

    • And Now The Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
      (link)

      @And Now The Jon Lovitz Dancers!: i am noticing that harbor only has stats for 4 games, that’s probably part of the problem with him. paul has only 2 targets per week since reed’s came back.

    Received this trade in my 12 team standard keep 2 league

    Give: Tre Mason
    7th round pick

    Get: Phillip Rivers
    10th round pick

    My current roster:

    QB- Cutler
    Tannehill

    WR- Green
    White
    Crabtree
    Wayne
    Hunter
    Danard Robinson (WR/RB)

    RB-Lacy
    Leveon Bell
    Mason
    Ingram
    Robinson (WR/RB)

    TE-Cameron

    K-Parkey

    DEF-HOU

    I’m only 3-4 in 9th place and my WRs are terrible causing a 3 game losing streak. Four teams make the playoffs out of 12. So should I just tank it and not lose the better draft pick or is this upgrade at QB enough to make it worthwhile?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @ashtray: I like you getting Rivers… that being said, you already have two QB’s. I’d probably try the same package, but with Cutler instead of Mason.

    Hey Jay.. I need a rb to fill a hole.. Reddick or Jonas Gray?? PPR

  50. A Wesley Snipes Life says:
    (link)

    for next week i’ll have to drop somebody to get 1 week QB starter with Ryan out. .1 pt per return yard and full pt PPR. start 2 WR/ 2 RB/ 1 TE/ 1 Flex (only WR/RB)
    ryan
    murray/ingram/mason/ivory/cunningham
    julio/j.jones (OAK)/Patterson/Wright/Landry (both punt and kick returns)/gordon
    reed
    clearly, if Mason gets hurt this week definite Cunningham as option might change. free agent WR/RB in case i lose somebody include holmes/murphy/royal/malcolm F/starks/freeman/sims/todman (return yards)/rainey/pierce/gray. this may have turned into patterson drop.
    2. Is there some particular reason Sims is projected by yahoo for a decent amount of ROS pts (85.75)?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @A Wesley Snipes Life: Who knows what Yahoo thinks, I have no idea with them. I like Sims a bit though. Cunningham seems the safest drop there for a QB.

      • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
        (link)

        @Jay: yeah, i agree on yahoo, they are affectively assuming he takes rainey’s job pretty much completely since they are giving him 8.58 pts per week for ROS, even without giving him any projected return yards.

    Trade away Vereen, FJax, and K. Wright for Megatron? My team (.5ppr):

    Romo
    Forte, Lacy, Joique, Vereen, FJax, Khiry
    Antonio, Keenan, Wright, Randle
    Ertz

    Tried to get Ryan Mathews, too, but he wouldn’t budge. Also Vereen and Khiry are my only backs not on bye next week, so I’d have to pick up a scrub and essentially chalk that one up as a loss.
