Fantasy Football: (Sunday Injury Report) Updated Week 3 FLEX Rankings

RotoExperts Staff September 21, 2014 9:05AM EDT
THE FLEXPERT – SUNDAY INJURY UPDATE & RANKINGS ADJUSTMENT

Soooooooo… PICK UP ALFRED BLUE!!! And do it now, there’s not even time for a single Effiel 65 joke. Arian Foster (hammy) is questionable, and as Ian Rapoport points out, it’s leaning more towards Foster sitting out against the Giants. Color me stunned. Fortunately, this is an early game and we’ll have an actual conclusion before kickoff, so let the injury report do the work for you. If Foster’s active he’s a Top 15 RB, if Foster’s out (which my rankings reflect) Blue would enter Donald Brown/Fred Jackson territory among running backs, just outside the Top 20 at the position. My one reservation on Blue as a must start, in a very enticing matchup? Jonathan Grimes. We’re basing Blue’s role off his garbage time work against the Raiders in Week 2. Before that, everyone would have picked Grimes as a the one to inherit the wind role if Foster was sidelined. I agree, it appears like Blue will be the starter, but Grimey could see just as many touches. Blue is the immediate add and play if you need RB assistance; Grimes is a Hail Mary FLEX. However, if you missed the rush to add Blue, and have a roster spot, I’d recommend snagging Grimes off free agency now in case he goes off this week and Foster misses more time. Then you won’t have to know how many FAAB bucks to bid on him Tuesday morning, you’ll already have him – for nothing.

This Jamaal Charles/Knile Davis situation in Miami has bench mistake written all over it. Charles was “diagnosed” with a high ankle sprain Monday afternoon. That sparked a flurry FAAB bidding over Davis, as there was nary a Fantasy player (Charles owner or not) that couldn’t use a Top 15 RB for at least month – with the possibility of Charles being out even longer. Thursday, Charles returned back at practice. Friday, he practiced again. He’s now a game time decision. And, to make it more exciting, Chiefs/Dolphins starts at 4ET. Now, maybe KC will gift Fantasy owners like Tampa did last week, when it rendered Doug Martin inert 20 minutes before kickoff at 1ET. That’s not something to be counted on, though. Play for worst case scenario: If no there is no update on Charles, and he persists with the “game time decision” tag, if two capable RB options are available on your roster, I’d play them instead. I’ve put Charles in the rankings as if that’s the decision you’re going to have to make Sunday morning. Charles is slotted at RB 25: One spot behind Fred Jackson; one spot ahead of Shonn Greene. Hopefully this situation solves itself, Charles is ruled inactive and Davis can be used with extreme confidence. Which I do think is the most likely scenario btw. If both Charles and Davis are active, I still like the non-injured Davis as my 12th ranked RB. I’d cap it this way: The probability of Charles leaving the game because of injury > Charles going ballistic and winning you the week.

The best thing you can do? Watch FNTSY Sports Network’s live game day coverage from 7am ET to 1pm ET. I get the last word from Noon until kickoff, and I can assure you, I’ll be on top of every development. Plus, I’ll be answering your start/sit Qs throughout the hour. WATCH!!!

Week 3: Waiver Wire Power Rankings | RB Tandem Value

Brandon Marshall (ankle), Alshon Jeffery (hammy) and Eric Decker (hammy) are all questionable in the Monday nighter. If Marshall and DJ Jazzy Jeffery were able to go last week and with no mention of the injuries getting worse over the last seven days, you should expect them to play. Decker, he looks 50/50 at this point. Since surprise inactives are becoming a thing this season, if you’re starting any of this wounded triumvirate, I’d have either Jemery Kerley or Santanio Holmes on stand by. Never hurts to be prepared. You can open up a few more replacement options in Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson and Martellus Bennett if you have the ability to shift Marshall, Jeffery or Decker into your FLEX. It’s worth waiting on the Bears’ duo; if you have Decker, while the matchup is inciting, based on where he was drafted, you likely have an equivalently talented, healthier alternative. Just start them and save yourself the stress.

Sneakily, the Ravens opened up a roster spot in case they need to promote an extra running back from the practice squad should Bernard Pierce (thigh) be unable to play. It’s something to keep and eye on. I prefer Justin Forsett over Pierce this week anyway, but Forsett would move into my Top 30 RBs if Pierce is inactive. He’ll make a solid FLEX, especially in PPR. Update: Pierce INACTIVE.

Monitor this too: The 49ers promoted TE Asante Cleveland from their practice squad Saturday afternoon. Doesn’t sound like good news for Vernon Davis’ (ankle) prospects of playing. With both Davis and Vance McDonald (knee) likely out, Derek Carrier should be a DFS goldmine in an awesome matchup with the Cardinals.

Keenan Allen remains questionable with a groin problem. If he’s active, consider him a mid-tier WR2.

Maurcie Jones-Drew (hand) appears like he’ll be taking part in the thrashing New England’s going to put on the Raiders. If he’s is a late scratch, Darren McFadden becomes very useable. If not, both running backs are pretty mediocre starts. As it turns out, Darren McFadden is now very useable. Looks like MJD is going be to a no go. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewartthey’re still on track to cancel each other out.

I lost two FAAB bids this week trying to get Austin Davis and Mike Glennon. I’m not sure what’s more disgraceful: that I no longer have a QB to use in my SUPERFLEX, or that I was trying to pick up Austin Davis and Mike Glennon? Although I may be in the dumps, I can still take solace in the fact I’m not close to as blue as the saddest man in America. HELLO WILDCATS!!!

THE FLEXPERT: v. 14.3 – WEEK 3 FLEX RANKINGS

I attempt to approach Fantasy sports the same way as I make decisions in my real life. Primarily, weighing the cost-benefit of every decision. Being able to objectively assess what to do should lead you down the proper path in determining if risk vs. reward is a worthwhile cause. It’s not incredibly difficult to do; it just requires an understanding and incorporation of all the variables involved. That’s generally where people go wrong.

Take the Adrian Peterson situation. Is he going to play this season? Probably not. But that’s certainly not a concrete conclusion. What if he shows up to court, gets slapped with fine, then the NFL suspends him for six games and he’s eligible to return in, oh, Week 12. That scenario is definitely not the likely outcome, but it’s very much in play. So, you need to understand your situation. Is it worth it to you to stash AP in the hopes that he can return and give your team a boost down the stretch and into the Fantasy playoffs? Simply put, YES. But, that’s only if you don’t have to give up anything of substance to acquire his services.

Look at your roster right now; do you see names like Darren McFadden or Brian Hartline wasting away on your bench? At best, these guys are bye week fillers… if your team is any good. They hold only a microscopic amount of value to your roster; they’re expendable. Point is, with Peterson likely finished, Fantasy owners are jumping at the chance to get anything in return for him – it makes them feel good – it makes no difference if what they’re getting in return is garbage or not.

Conversely, if you own Peterson, until there is an absolute resolution on his 2014 status, he’s better off being a commodity on your bench than selling supremely low. However, if you get a legit offer, take it. Since AP’s been deactivated (for the second time) and placed on the exempt list, I’ve still watched him still be swapped for the likes of Arian FosterGio Bernard and Antonio Brown. If you can still get 75-cents on the dollar, buy yourself out of the situation and be happy about it. Not happening in your league? Then you’re stuck with him.

In a roundabout way, it’s similar to the Josh Gordon situation. The reason getting Gordon was a focal point of my 2014 strategy was because it was low risk. It cost me nothing to get him, and if by chance he got to play this season, I added a WR1 for the minimal amount of expenditure. The reward of the gamble criminally outweighed the inherent risk from my side. Now that we know Gordon can practice with the Browns and will be activated in Week 12 (10 games plus bye), the return was worth the low risk of taking him late in a draft or snatching him off free agency. Even if you get off to a slow start and feel like you need a boost to your roster to qualify for the playoffs, trade him. Not only is Gordon an asset; he’s a very valuable one, more so for teams near the top of the standings that look like they can cruise to the Fantasy post season. Either way, whatever you paid to get Gordon, you’ve already turned a profit.

The same applies to Peterson.

For what you’d have to give up for his services, even if he never plays, there’s really no downside for your commitment level, unless you really value your last roster spot, I suppose. Some people are taking a moral stand against AP, saying things like, “I don’t want to own a child beater on my Fantasy team.”

Child abuse wrong. Period. That’s a uniform issue across the board. If it isn’t for you, then you have far more serious problems than winning a Fantasy football championship. But choosing to make a moral stance through your Fantasy team? What a hero you are. These issues are something you should take a stand against in your real life. Fantasy football is a game, nothing more. Would you not conquer Siam in Risk because you don’t advocate child labor? Come on now. Morality only hinders your chances of winning, and if you can exploit this misguided morality to your advantage, you swing the odds into your favor.

You must assess league awareness, though. It’s twofold: you need self-awareness and an understanding of your leaguemates’ tendencies.

This applies to any game, and this is THEE variable most Fantasy gamers simply overlook. The more people realize that like poker, Monopoly, Burgertime, political campaigns or the criminally overlooked 13 Dead End Drive are identical to Fantasy Football, the easier it is to win. You’re not just playing inside the rules; you’re squaring off with other people – people who generally follow a distinct pattern in their actions. Being cognizant of their actions must be factored into your decision-making.

Understanding football is huge, it’s a giant boost to your quest for Fantasy Football supremacy, that’s undeniable. That’s only first level game play, though. It’s far more important to understand the rules, your opponents and your personal level of skill if you want to consistently win. If you just picked a sample of your five favorite Fantasy writers, compiled their aggregate rankings, and just went by those every week, chances are you’d be in contention by the end of the season. But everyone can do that.

You can separate your team through manipulation of the rules and using your opponents’ tendencies against them. That’s where you create a value gap and give yourself the biggest possible advantage.

Consider it the Tampa Bay Rays’ Extra 2% philosophy, just applied to Fantasy football. Dig where no one is looking and exploit your competitors’ lack of knowledge.

QUICK READS

After EEEK the Cating out a useful Fantasy day in Week 1, finding pay dirt, James Jones transformed into Garbage Time Jimmy against the Texans. When you see 14 balls fly at your face (take a moment) you’re going to light up the stat sheet. It became very apparent that if Derek Carr is attempting a pass more than minus two yards down field, it’s directed towards Jones. And there should be plenty of garbage time available for him this week in New England.

After witnessing Andy Reid’s pitiful play selection at the end of the Chiefs/Broncos game, I’m now fully convinced there’s nothing but snack options on that giant, laminated “play sheet

If you have Peyton Manning, I pray for your soul, especially since he was likely your first or second round pick. Here’s the thing, he’s at Seattle, where QBs worse than Peyton have had good games before; they just don’t happen often. Am I saying bench the best Fantasy QB? Short answer: Maybe. It depends on your options. I fell into the Jake Locker Hot matchup trap last week, and I shan’t be making that mistake again. AT SEATTLE is the worst possible start for any QB, and with other usual Top 10 options taking on softer opponents, I’d use them. And if Peyton goes off for three TDs and 400 yards, shame on me. Yes, it can happen, but it’s a low probability outcome.

Cam Newton is one of the guys I’d start over Peyton. CAMMMMMMMMMMM showed us everything we wanted from him in terms of health. He didn’t do as much running as we would’ve expected, but still managed 19 yards on four carries, and just missed rushing one in in the red zone. His rapport with Kelvin Benjimin was evident even if the stats weren’t there, and he made good use of Jason Avant, of all people. No one’s ever done that! His rushing stats will improve with each passing week, and he inherits an excellent matchup against the Steelers, whose defense has looked putrid against the punchless Ravens and Browns offenses through two weeks.

Am I really believing Antonio Gates spent every penny he’s ever earned to buy Dr. Brown’s DeLorean, traveled back to 2007 and brought his talent back with him to 2014? 1.21 GIGA WATTS!!!! I am. That or he’s healthy for once. Health, it’s not something that comes easy for Gates, so you may as well use him while he’s looking spry. It’s clear he’s still Philip Rivers’ favorite target and, more importantly, his most trusted option in the red zone. You can’t predict touchdowns, but receptions tend to be consistent. Through two weeks, the Bills have ceded 16 catches to tight ends. Give Gates eight receptions, and I’m sure he’ll score. Score more than Burt Reynolds at a 70s coke party. I just wish Gates had the wherewithal to grab Biff’s Almanac for me. Also, if Gates gets hurt, pounce on Ladarius Green immediately.

Question: If you don’t watch a second of a Rams game, do those stats actually count? They do! You just don’t notice. It’s why Brian Quick is stuck in waiver wire purgatory. Help him make it to the other side, it’s worth it. Quick has posted identical nine target, seven reception games this season, and has developed into Austin Davis’ first read. Looks are looks, take them where you can get them. With Tavon Austin out and Kenny Britt rendered inert, his role may actually increase in Week 3. Plus, he was the first pick of the second round TWO YEARS AGO; he’s not some scrub. Quick has pedigree, it just took him a while to get going. He’s on a roll now.

Why are Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridely ranked so low? I just don’t know how they’re going to be used. It’s why I stayed away from the situation in the first place. Everyone wants to claim that if Ridley fumbles, he’ll get benched and Vereen is a stud. That could be true… or Brandon Bolden is introduced into the mix, or even James White. If I could get equivalent value for either Vereen or Ridley, especially a player with consistent touches, I’d do it – regardless of position.

No need to panic if you’re 0-2. Ditto in two weeks if you’re sitting 0-4. Five and six loss teams make the Fantasy playoffs every year. You’re in a hole, but in no way finished. That said, 0-4 is not ideal.

For ONE WEEK ONLY, Jared Cook gets reprieve from the WORST PLACE list to exploit an awesome match up against the Cowboys. The ‘boys D has not been as bad as we all thought, but it’s early, they have time to implode. One thing they simply can’t do however, is limit tight ends. Week 1 Vernon Davis destroys them, then Delaine Walker posts career bests against them in Week 2. Don’t buy into Cook long term, but this may be the only time you can use him all year. Do it.

Call it a gut feeling, but Marques Colston is going to post a HUGE WEEK after his goose egg in Cleveland.

When you peruse the target leaders through two weeks, you’ll notice some familiar names in the Top 10. Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones, Calvin Johnson. Jordy Nelson’s the leader. Number 5? Andrew Hawkins. Hawkins had minimal sleeper buzz in the preseason, based solely on his proclivity to run routes near the line of scrimmage. And when your quarterback’s (HOYERTIME!!!) prone to check down, you’re gonna get a lot of looks. And, it’s happened. Double-digit targets in both weeks, resulting in 14 receptions for the year. He’s PPR gold, and has enough big play potential to break a few long ones. With the increased opportunity, very simple math tells me he should do it more often. MATH!!!

Thursday Night just the Tip: If Bobby Rainey is on free agency, pick him up before the Thursday night game, even if you don’t need him. If you simply scoop him up before the game and don’t start him, you’ve beat the rush and won’t need to waste any FAAB dollars should Rainey assume the full workload in Tampa or Doug Martin gets hurt, again. If the current situation persists as a time share, you can just drop him if you need someone this weekend. Oh, if Martin is a no go in Atlanta, I’d rank Rainey as RB 15.

I am deadly afraid of high ankle sprains, not matter what the severity. Yes, I am worried about Jamaal Charles going forward. And as long as he’s out, Knile Davis is a fringe Top 10 RB.

Mark Ingram succumbed to the curse of WORST PLACE, and is now sidelined for a month with a hand injury. Leaving the door WIDE OPEN for Pierre Thomas get a bump in usage. Thomas was already money in PPR formats, but he’s a must start in any type of league now. Sure, Khiry Robinson will eat into his production, but betting on the Saints offense at home is always where the smart money’s at. Pull the trigger on PT CRUIS’N USA.

Roddy White is listed as questionable for the Thursday nighter. While wide receivers tend to see a massive drop off in their production in Thursday night games, especially compared to running backs, Harry Douglas does become a respectable WR3 and FLEX if White is a last second inactive. Through two games, playing the WR3 role for the Falcons, Harry Doug has seen 16 targets, an equal eight in each game. Expect that number to get an uptick if White is watching from the sidelines. We talk a lot about RB handcuffs, but WR handcuffs could be just as valuable, and there is no better WR3 to hold on to than Douglas. Mainly because he hold value anyway, and if White or Julio Jones were to miss a significant amount of time, Douglas would be a low end WR2. Who would be the second best WR handcuff? I was leaning Jarrett Boykin, but two weeks of data have shifted my opinion to Davante Adams. The rookie’s quietly getting some usage in the Packers’ offense and may have passed Boykin as the true tertiary option.

Don’t sleep on Travis Kelce. His role expanded from Week 1 to Week 2 and he appears to be the only member of the Chiefs’ receiving corps with a pulse. Stash him, he’ll be a Top 10 TE in the second half of the season.

Everyone was quick to anoint the Saints division champs before the season, and they’ve been just as reactionary after an 0-2 start. But, both New Orleans’ games were on the road. This is the home opener, versus the Vikings, sans AP, starting Matt Cassel at QB. The Pats set the bar high last week getting Cassel to toss four picks. Rob Ryan will unleash the Blitzkrieg to see if he can double that number. Stream the Saints if they were dropped.

Going back to the final four games of 2013, Geno Smith has been a shockingly effective Fantasy QB. I know, this is #GENOPICKS we’re talking about here, consider this; over his past four games Geno is averaging 43 yards on the ground, breaching the goal line in four of them. That’s basically a free 8-10 points to start. So, whatever he does through the air is just a bonus. And, while the Bears have an opportunistic defense, it’s certainly not spectacular. Less so now with Charles Tillman done for the season. Obviously, Geno is not an ideal start. However, he’s a cheap option with upside to use in deeper leagues and daily formats.

Need more evidence that taking running backs early in drafts isn’t necessary? I present exhibit Donald Brown to the court. With Ryan Mathews shelved, Brown will see the majority of carries between the tackles and the goal line work while Danny Woodhead will continue to work the majority of passing downs and man the flats. Buffalo’s defense has been rather stout so far in 2014, but it’s a small sample. The Bills front seven is far better getting to the quarterback than limiting the run. And with the Chargers offense running so efficiently, this is a great spot to nab Brown off waivers and get him into your lineup if you need the help.
