Okay, here are the Shuffle Up rules.
We are talking rest-of-season value. Everything to this point is an audition. If you want leaders to this point, you’ll find them elsewhere. If you want Week 5 rankings, click over here.
Today, we do running backs, just running backs. Next week, new position. Eventually I will start batching them in groups of two (probably backs with the tight ends, and quarterbacks with the wideouts.)
You’ll disagree with stuff because that’s why we have a game. Try to stay grounded and rational with your players, it’s one of the most important skills in your fantasy toolbox.
The prices are unscientific and just a way to compare the players. When players are at the same price, it means they are considered even. I do not compare prices with other shuffles, and I do every shuffle from scratch.
Assume a half-point PPR scoring format. I will comment on many (perhaps most) players, but I do not promise a comment on everyone.

Each week the Noise highlights 10 somewhat un-obvious names whom he believes are destined to implode leave egg on his face. To qualify, each player must be started in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues. Speaking as an accountability advocate, I will post results, whether genius or moronic, the following week using the scoring system shown here (Thresholds – QB: 18 fpts, RB: 13 fpts, WR: 11 fpts, TE: 10 fpts). If you're a member of TEAM HUEVOS, reveal your Week 5 Lames in the comments section below.

Every Wednesday the Noise highlights 12-13 somewhat obscure, un-obvious names who he believes are destined to torch the competition. To qualify, each player must be started in fewer than 60 percent of Yahoo! leagues. Speaking as an accountability advocate, I will post results, whether genius or moronic, the following week using the scoring system shown here (Thresholds – QB: 18 fpts, RB: 13 fpts, WR: 11 fpts: TE: 10 fpts).

The Big Board takes into consideration past returns, current performance and expected future gains in determining who should be included among the top 50 fantasy basketball players. Essentially, the Big Board is a cheat sheet designed for a fantasy owner who is planning to participate in a draft today. Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Basketball default scoring settings are used as the baseline for the Big Board.

Week 4’s winner of the “NFL Million Dollar Baller” contest scored far fewer points (178.64) than previous champs, but in a week that saw scoring down league wide, it was good enough to take home the $100,000 prize.
Andy Dalton put up a solid 18.44 points, but the QB in the midst of a career year actually underperformed compared to what he’s been doing, as four Bengals rushing touchdowns limited Dalton’s production. The winner made an interesting choice using a tight end (Ladarius Green) at the flex position, and neither he nor Tyler Eifert exceeded expectations (in fact they totaled less than their FPPG on the season).
While this week’s winner didn’t hit on every pick, they did make a major profit elsewhere, starting with Detroit’s defense. The Lions cost just $10 yet produced the most fantasy points (22.00) among all defenses thanks to six sacks and three fumble recoveries, one of which was returned for a score. The Lions were owned by just 0.5% of the 76,215 entrants, which isn’t exactly surprising considering they were 10-point underdogs in Seattle.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler made a surprise return from a hamstring injury on Sunday and could be a streaming option for fantasy players heading into Week 5.
Cutler, who had sat last week due to the injury, performed reasonably well in a win over the Oakland Raiders. He finished with 281 yards passing and two touchdowns. While Cutler did turn the ball over twice, he led a drive in the final minute of the game to set up Robbie Gould for a game-winning field goal.
Chicago's next opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs, have given up 10 passing touchdowns through four games. Further benefiting Cutler's cause is the expected return of top receiver Alshon Jeffery, who has been hampered by leg injuries.
Another option on the waiver wire will be Tedd Ginn Jr. Since an ACL tear ended Kelvin Benjamin's 2015 campaign before it could even begin, fantasy owners have been eager to see who might emerge as the Carolina Panthers' No. 1 receiver. After four weeks of play, it appears there is an answer. Ginn has racked up 152 yards and three scores since Week 2.

Fantasy owners expecting Andrew Luck to play with a shoulder injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars were dealt a blow Sunday morning, when news broke that the Colts quarterback would reportedly miss Week 4.
It would be the first time in Luck's career he has missed a game. Whether you are now scrambling for a last-minute sub at QB, wondeirng how the receivers will do with Matt Hasselbeck throwing passes for the Colts or hoping for an uptick in carries for Frank Gore, we have you covered.
Some possible Week 4 QB streamers: Alex Smith, Colin Kaepernick, Blake Bortles, Josh McCown. I assume Carr types are long, long gone.
I moved Donte Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton into the mid-20s at receiver. Matt Hasselbeck doesn't crush them, but have to be realistic.
I'm leaving the Frank Gore expectations alone, steady RB2. Loss of offensive efficiency likely offset by a few extra touches.
