(INACTIVES UPDATE) WEEK 7 FANTASY FOOTBALL FLEX RANKINGS: GO GO GADGET GRONK

RotoExperts Staff October 20, 2013 9:30AM EDT
*****SUNDAY UPDATE: 12:10pm ET.*****
(Scroll to bottom for updated rankings)

HERE WE GO… 

GRONK IS ACTIVE!!! Julian Edelman’s a go as well. Start both with confidence.

I’m going with Jay Glazer on this one:

I’ve bumped up Jordy Nelson, Jermichael Finley and Jarrett Boykin. Still don’t trust Boykin however. Bad Hands. Also, the weather in that game doesn’t bother me.

Fred Davis is a healthy scratch. Sucks to be you Fred Davis. This is great news for Jordan Reed’s prospects this week and long term.

There’s a report circulating Percy Harvin may return for Week 8. Go get him NOW (I’ll wait).

Cecil Shorts is active, but remains a risky play because of his rib/shoulder/being on Jacksonville issues. I’m still starting him however… cause I like to live dangerously. Do you also like to live dangerously? Justin BlackMON is in too, he remains a Top 5 WR for me.

Calvin Johnson looked good in warmups – hopefully he kills it against the Bengals. I need it desperately. Joique Bell’s suiting up too, he’s a desperation option in this bad matchup.

DeMarco Murray is officially out. Although, I’m not sure who was expecting him to play in the first place.

My #LOSTIT prediction of the week? Delanie Walker with a REVENGE GAME TD against the 49ers! Don’t over look a Dan Carpenter REVENGE GAME either.

and finally…

Remember, I only want to hear from you if my advice worked out, OK?

Bonne Chance in Week 7!

*****SATURDAY UPDATE: 6:00pm ET.*****

Well, the “Brandon Jacobs relevant Fantasy player era” has come to its thrilling conclusion, rather abruptly too. Jacobs sat out Giants practice Saturday and is now listed as questionable for the Monday nighter against the Vikings. As a few of you were able to decipher from this week’s opening paragraph, I didn’t really like Jacobs past this week, but I thought he’d be a quality play in this spot. He ain’t no more. With his status up in the air, and the fact he’s clearly not close to full health, there’s no way you can chance it. We have no idea how the workload will be divvied up between the big man, rookie Michael Cox and freshly-off-the-street Peyton Hillis. It’s just a situation to avoid; come Monday night, there are no other alternatives. If you’re forced into starting one due to a complete lack of options, Jacobs remains the best play if he’s active. If Jacobs is in street gear, blending in with the sideline security, I actually like Hillis a bit as the fill in. More than Cox, at least.

Rob Gronkowski has been cleared to play, HUZZAH!!!! Although… I haven’t actually heard anywhere that he’s actually going to play. He likely will, but it’s something to watch as the early game inactives come out. If he is active, you play him, OK? I’ve penciled typed him in as my TE #2. I’m not worried about a lack of snaps or potential decoy use. If he’s been kept out this long, he’s going to be fully involved in the offense if his pads are strapped on. Now, this is New England, so that could turn out to be completely false, but I don’t think it is. And against the Jets, he’s going to kill them. That’s if he plays, of course.

Cecil Shorts says he’ll play despite missing practice most the week, “I’m sure once the adrenaline kicks in, I’ll play ball and deal it. It’s something I have to fight through.” Who am I to call him a lair? If he’s in against the Chargers, I’m starting him with confidence. It’s a great matchup, and the presence of Justin BlackMON helps, not hinders his productivity. Blackmon’s hurtin too, btw. He’s dealing with a hamstring problem, but expected to play. And I expect him to be a Top 5 WR this week. I still like #HEENE too. Not as much as NICK FOLES!!!! but more than most the other mediocre QB2s.

James Jones and Danny Amendola didn’t practice Saturday. Jones may still play, but I’d rather he didn’t. Without Jones, Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finely – and, to a lesser extent – Jarrett Boykin greatly benefit. But with Jones there, and his actual ability to remain a complete mystery until we see him on the field, it bumps them all down just a tad. And you can’t trust Jones because of it. Still, if he’s in, I like him more than Boykin. And don’t count on Amendola playing. That’s why I like Julian Edelman so much. Edelman’s PPR crack for me.

The FITZMAGIC couldn’t last forever; Jake Locker will be under center for the Titans against the 49ers. Definitely not starting Locker. It does however, make Nate Washington a better start than Kendall Wright now. Wright’s intermediate routes were best suited for Fitzpatrick, he didn’t have the arm to hit “Nine-Route” Washington downfield. Locker can. And will certainly try. Guy thoroughly enjoys airing it out.

Still really like Miami D against the immortal Thad Lewis but he does make all your Bills better Fantasy wise, even at 60-percent. Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn really are that terrible.

It’s brutal matchup for Case Keenum, but I like him to pepper Andre Johnson with targets all game. He may actually get AJ into the endzone… in garbage time! Still like Arian Foster the same, he may get a bump in receptions through a ton of dump offs and Garrett Graham may act a short-pass safety blanket as well. Graham’s a very fringy TE/FLEX start, and certainly cannot be trusted. But let’s not act like Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates were any good; Keenum is a lateral move, at worst, for the Texans with the pivot production they were getting anyway.

GO TROJANS!!!!!!

THE FLEXPERT

Two years ago Maurice Jones-Drew led the NFL in rushing. Today, people are openly inquiring if they should drop him for Brandon Jacobs. Not a well thought out long-term plan, by the way. Mainly, because Jacobs should really reside in the bag of The Evil Midnight Bomber What Bombs at Midnight – it says “BOMBS” on it – and the thick hand has almost lapped its famished counterpart at the finish line of the day’s 24th lap. He’s going straight pumpkin very soon.

Just so you know, I earned just +556 experience points for getting Cinderella and The TickSPPPPPOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNN – in the same metaphor. +276 for The Tick, +2 for Cinderella, with a double cartoon combo – which is huge because I can now perform “Geno Whirl””. Exor has no chance; once I give him the ol’ gouge to lazy up his eye, he’s finished. One shot, kid. Now I can unlock the hidden casino, stop worrying about saving the Mushroom Kingdom and go play blackjack. And if Toad didn’t want me to do that, the two ushers manning the door at the Grate Guy’s gaming emporium shouldn’t look exactly like him, only donning 16-bit tuxedos. It’s confusing. Also, is Toad a he? I mean, in Mario Kart (s)he shares the same attributes as the female characters: Great tight turns, fantastic burst, poor top speed and easily shook by the bigger drivers – IT’S A ME, WARIO!!! But it could just be because he’s mini, like Darren Sproles. Or… Toad is just a eunuch like those wackos living in Baron Underbite’s castle.

It literally took 38 words to plunge into an abyss of insanity. Maybe I have really #LOSTIT. I didn’t think I had, but then I caught a glimpse of the desk I sit at while writing this column.

On the plus side, I did just earn an extra multiplier for dropping the world’s best TV show, one SNES classic, another vintage N64 cartridge – both from the Miyamoto family – into the melee. For which I’m taking an additional Super Smash Bros. point. BOOM! +736356 Although, I did lose 5 points for including Jersey Shore.

Now, back to football, where… I understand your frustration.

I actually don’t get your MJD issues whatsoever. I play in 13 leagues and that (formerly) mighty midget doesn’t appear on a single one of them. But I do own enough shares of Ryan Mathews and Darren McFadden to somewhat empathize. Fortunately, with that durable duo, health is their tragic flaw, not talent. OK, maybe Mathews is the perfect storm of both. Honestly, have you ever taken a serious look at his career game log? He’s the most hyped Fantasy player of this generation that’s never actually accomplished anything. Still, I like him more than MJD. Every once and again, Mathews will at least break a tackle and pick up an extra 5-yards, and you’ll think, “WOW, if he could just do that every time he’d be legit.” That’s not reality, though. That Mathews play happens, maybe, once a game. Twice, if Philip Rivers audibles to a draw with the opposition in prevent and no one on the field is within 30 yards of the line of scrimmage or weighs more than 225 lbs. Still, the Chargers offense is capable so his opportunity to potentially be not embarrassing is slightly larger. With Jones-Drew, I would bet good money he encountered some Shang Tsung-type character in the summer of 2012 who sucked the football talent right out of him. On a positive note, he retained his soul. On a less positive note, this is why I have no money.

Something was up, though, and MJD knew it; it’s why he held out. Since ending that debacle, he has ceased to be the same player. That Mojo was gone, and he didn’t have $100 million, a shagadelic time machine and an awful script to get it back. It’s gone, baby. And for the past year and six weeks he’s been a crummy name value player. You think he should be good, but that’s just false. His 2.9 ypc should have been a red flag. So should have his 16 carries per game and the diminished role in the passing attack – just 8 catches this year. Yet I’m as culpable as everyone. I continue to rank him as a fringe RB/FLEX start every week; an honor that is too generous. MJD is a sit until further notice. As of this week, he’s venturing very close to the realm of the unownable, an entirely different world – a lousier one – populated by the likes of Mark Ingram, Jared Cook, Montee Ball and Zach Miller. He’s frozen in purgatory: clearly, not effective enough to be starting on your squad, but persists as a featured back in the NFL, which means he cannot be dropped. Through attrition, and attrition alone, he was able to provide a serviceable stat line against the Seahawks and Broncos, bless you garbage time TDs. He’s yet to top 71 yards on the ground in any game, and took 21 carries to reach that Everestesque height. And, Denver has given up at least one score to a running back every week. In fact, they’ve allowed a league-high 9 TDs to the position, so if MJD could sort of get it done, Trent Richardson has to as well, right? He better, cause I’m sticking my neck out for him. Also, because I’m obligated to believe in him this Sunday. The matchup is just dripping juice.

I’ve even gone as far to ‘short sell’ him on one team. In Week 2, I made a straight up swap of T-Rich for Dez Bryant, and I reacquired the dreaded one’s services Tuesday afternoon for Willis McGahee and Alshon Jeffery. Is he going to be good long term? Doubtful. That’s why I’m going to try to flip him again as readily as possible after his supposed breakthrough against the Broncos. I have the trade offers already queued, hopefully he’ll be someone else’s problem by the time 21st and Prime radiates through my screen. NUMBA 6!!!!!

Everything pointed to Richardson truly breaking out upon joining the Colts. Yet, he’d rather laugh in the face of good fortune despite being afforded every opportunity to succeed. In his four games with Indy, Richardson’s seeing 15.5 touches a game; he’s parlayed that into a mournful 3.13 ypc and, apparently, he’s decided he doesn’t catch anyone either. Good thinking! Why do we think T-Rich is good, again? He’s basically not-perpetually-pained Ryan Mathews; they both list “underwhelming career numbers” as their Tinder taglines. Still, no one can accept that they’re busts. It’s the first-round pedigree. Yet, if the third overall pick is a defensive lineman, he’d be selling auto insurance in nowhere, Kansas after starting a career like these two jabronis, or worse, sippin’ on that purple drank.

Now, he could be great henceforth. Conceivably, it was a poor run system limiting his talent in Cleveland, and his lack of comfort in the Colts’ offensive scheme is currently restricting his ability to bust loose. Maybe. But unlikely. Anyone preaching that is just addicted to excuses. Fact is, he’s watched his touches diminish three consecutive weeks, hasn’t breeched the 60-yard barrier in any game and his longest run of the year is a piddling 16 yards. That’s not someone you can rely on every week. Only this week, because he’s going to find pay dirt. Start him this week, then commence peddling. Actually, you have two weeks to convince your league mates that you really, really don’t want to trade him… unless they make it worth your while. Let T-Rich build some ‘Bye Week Buzz’.

I’d throw David Wilson into this discussion too, but his neck did all of his owners a big Fantasy favor. Now, you’re never pledged to plug him in because he’s a great “upside gamble”. Also, feel free to drop Wilson. He reeks. And certainly not of awesomeness. Chris Johnson deserves a shout out, but his closing schedule of Denver, Arizona and Jacksonville in Weeks 14, 15 and 16 make him a strategic buy-low.

#THROWBACKTRACK

When “Setting Sun” debuted on the MuchMusic Countdown at number 27, November 1, 1996, 11-year-old me got RATTLED after my first viewing…

And I exhibit equal mental discomfort rapidly approaching 30. Is it because I recently discovered Noel Gallagher contributed the lyrics or I still haven’t gotten over it being listed ahead of the underrated 90s jam “Someone Who’s Cool” by The Odds, which was #30 that week? No. Mainly, it’s because it’s so strange. However, it does remain an excellent treadmill track. Gets you real FIRED UP and READY TO GO. What I’m saying is, I believe Barack Obama and the Chemical Brothers are essentially interchangeable.

QUICK READS

Folks – since I’ve made the conscious choice to run for President in 2020 I’m attempting to make ‘folks’ a prominent part of my vocabulary – cool your jets a little on Keenan Allen Wayans. I like him too, more so after he me look more foolish than usual overcoming a matchup that probably should have been filmed in a dank parking garage and directed by Martin Scorsese. It was impressive. That’s now three straight weeks of useable Fantasy numbers: never falling under five catches, six targets or 80 yards in any of those three games. It’s clear Keenan “Ivory” is El Riv’s first look along the outside. Two things, though: 1) didn’t we see Alshon Jeffery do this exact same thing, but only bigger and 2) what happens when teams realize he’s someone they need to actively take out of the Chargers offense, will he be able to readjust? That tends to be the toughest thing rookies must over come. I like Allen, and Jacksonville’s defense is like this philosophy class I once took: Low Pressure with everyone spaced – both mentally and physically. But going forward, sorry, Allen’s not a Top 15 receiver for the remainder of the year. Top 30? I can see that. Top 25, that’s pushing it. Do not start him over any of your established wideouts: that means no, I wouldn’t play him over Jordy Nelson or Torrey Smith or Pierre Garcon. Not to say he won’t have a better week any those guys, he definitely could, but remember, he’s only Keenan Allen, not Jerry Rice. And pray he doesn’t succumb to the San Diego receiver jinx. He should start wearing the knee braces now.

You know how people “heart” NY? I “heart” Aaron Dobson. Amidst its receiving corps’ capricious consistency, New England has continued to make Dobson a focal point in the passing game. Tom Brady trusts him. Not sure why, but he does. When the Pats – rightfully – went for it 4th and 6 against the Saints, it wasn’t Dr. Venkman Brady dialed up, it was Dobson. In five games, he’s cracked double-digit targets thrice, and had 5 balls come at his face in another. The opportunity is there, more so now with Danny Amendola still trying shake off a massive case of the dizzies, he just needs to capitalize on it. I like him a lot this week against an overrated Jets secondary: Gang Green stops the ground game, exclusively. Which is why I hate Stevan Ridley so much in this spot, in case you wanted some explanation behind his lack of rise in the ranks. I do prefer Allen to Dobson, but only may a minuscule margin. And I want Julian Edelman over both.

FOLES, #HENNE, GLENNON!!!!!!!!!!!

New England’s run defense is below average without Vince Wilfork. This makes Bilal Powell MKULTRA useable, Chris Ivory to a lesser extent too. I foresee POWWWWWWWWWWWell soaking up the majority of the touches, especially in the receiving game with Mike Goodson finished for the season. A running back getting 20-30 touches against a reasonably generous defense, sign me up.

Randall Cobb is out until week 15. He is droppable.

So is Rashard Mendenhall, but that’s cause he blows. This is Juke Ellington’s team now.

Jarrett Boykin is worth a flyer, but don’t be stunned to discover he attended the same one-day pass catching seminar as Jared Cook. It’s like Medusa started staring at his hands and just never stopped.

Austin Collie Alert!

Need a tight end or safe PPR Flex? Sign Tim Wright to a one-week deal. He was my Super Sunday Sleeper last week, and he needs to be started against the Falcons. Last time we caught Atlanta in action they were making us forget Geno Smith’s legitimate surname is “PICKS” while getting ignited by Jeff Cumberland and a PED’d out Kellen Winslow, the original Soulja Boy. So far this season the Falcons have given up five TDs in five games to big men, the only TE not to cross the goal line against them was Jared Cook. But that guy couldn’t score in an Amsterdam whorehouse. Jared Cook: A black hole of Fantasy production. Plus, since Mike Glennon has taken over the starting gig in Tampa, Wright has piled up 12 receptions on 15 targets for 132 yards. He’s PPR Roundtine – gold, Jerry. GOLD!!!!

Riley Cooper gets the NICK FOLES bump against #MERICA’S TEAM. I like him in this spot if you’re hurting for a FLEX, and he’s a nice add for next week too. Six teams go on bye and Racist Riley draws the crappy Giants. Fun Fact: He may (or may not, do I look like an investigative journalist? Please.) have authored this song.

DeAngelo Williams is the mortal enemy of Comedy Central’s late night lineup. In the present, Mike Tolbert aka The Tolbert Report is stealing his inside-the-five touches, and soon enough – probably two weeks – The Daily Show, Jonathan Stewart will commence pilfering his overall workload. Toss in a few games where CAAAMMMMM decides he’s going to take off 10 or so times and it leaves poor DeAngelo nowhere to SHAKE DEM DREADS besides in casual chill sessions with E-40 and Keak da Sneak, obviously. This maybe your final chance to get some production out of him, and he couldn’t have a better opponent than the Rams. Well, he could – The DERP Giants – but St. Louis is second best.

Josh Freeman’s getting the nod for Minny Monday night. So downgrade Greg Jennings without his BFF Matt Cassel transfixing his gaze him towards him at all times. Get Cordarrelle Patterson back on your radar, though. Word out of Vikings practice is that Patterson and Freeman have developed a nice connection. Cute! He was cut in most non-dynasty leagues and makes an interesting upside bench stash for later in the season. If you have the room on your roster in 14-team (or higher) league add him now before he goes off and you have to waste a waiver claim or FAAB bucks to acquire his rights. All that said, this week against the Giants, Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph are the only clear starts for the Vikes. Maybe the defense if you’re stuck.

Speaking of non-Daniel Plainview stashes, Roy Helu must be hidden away on your bench in deeper PPR leagues. If anything happens to Alfred Morris, Helu, and his tremendous pass catching ability, would be a Top 15, fringe Top 10 RB in PPR with Morris out. But I’m not using that stupid “Jr.” in his name, ever. It’s not like he just became Roy Helu Jr., I’m guessing it’s been exactly that way for the past 24 years. You enter the league with a “Jr.”, I’ll use it every time. Same applies with that ridiculous apostrophe Amare Stoudamire added to his name between the ‘r’ and ‘e’. How you can add an apostrophe but not take out a letter? Lacks sense. The only exception to this rule is Titus Young Sr., mainly because a 23-year-old using ‘Sr’ in his name is just something I find humorous. Plus, he’s a legit crazy person and if I ever defamed him there’s a 73-percent he’d track me down. This is what crazy people do.

For reference, in the Stash Power Rankings I have Andre Brown > Percy Harvin > Shane Veeren > Roy Helu > Cordarrelle Patterson > Michael Crabtree > Jonathan Stewart > Nate Burleson > a bag of burning dog excrement (IT’S POOP AGAIN!) > Mark Ingram

And finally, start planning ahead for an absence of what’s likely your best player, KC D/ST. They go on bye Week 10, then draw Denver in Weeks 11 and 13.

WEEK 7 RANKS

(Rankings & injury Fantasy spin updated Saturday supper time & Sunday morning after the inactive. So remember to check back)

Rankings set to PPR scoring format:

1 point for every 10 yards Rushing/Receiving

1 point per reception
6 points per Touchdown 

Points per reception (PPR) scoring must be treated differently than standard leagues. Receivers and scat backs like Darren Sproles, Danny Woodhead and Roy Helu have inflated value in PPR scoring. As do possession receivers – Wes Welker, Danny Amendola and others in their mold are safer options. Catches tend to be more consistent and predictive. Obviously, touchdowns and yards are still important, but when considering FLEX options exploit any advantage you can. For standard scoring, running backs with hands of stone like Alfred Morris, BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Stevan Ridley all see their stocks rise without catches in the mix.
