Run away from the Niners

Conversely, start everybody who plays against the Buffalo Bills. Which ever way you spin it, it's bound to work out. The Niners trounced Buffalo, holding Ryan Fitzpatrick, Stevie Johnson and Fred Jackson to a combined 8 points. If you're a more tempered individual, maybe just consider avoiding the Niners when they're at home, where the crowd noise makes this defense even more vicious. 

For example, if you've got Ahmad Bradshaw, you may actually consider sitting him this coming week. When Bradshaw can't amass more than 50 yards, you'll be hailed as a fantasy genius, hated by many but respected by all.

Graham cracker

I have no idea what that title means, but here we are. It can't be racially charged, because nobody knows what race Jimmy Graham is, not even his own mother. But I digress. Graham had just 1 catch for 4 yards on Sunday, yielding me 0 freaking points in a matchup where all I needed was a little something. It's no coincidence that after a 2-0 start for the Concuss'd Men of the Night's Watch, my team has gone the way of Jimmy Graham. I think I digressed again.

After beginning the season with 14 and 13 points, Graham has scored a total of 14 points over the next 3 games. More disconcerting, he left the stadium in a walking boot, and it's looking like he'll miss atleast 1 week with an ankle sprain. It'll be a little bit before you should consider starting him again, which is sad, because it seems I CAN'T WIN WITHOUT HIM. Digression-- it's gonna happen.

Talk amongst yourselves.
