In this special Black Friday edition of the 2 Man Weave Podcast, Miggs and I talk about our peers bizarre need to interject themselves into everything that is going on in the world via social media- in this case, the Ferguson riots. We also talk about the best redemption story of 2014, craft the perfect pizza slice and dish the dirt on some fantasy football drama we're both dealing with.

Ryan Knight, of The Real World Challenge and Real World New Orleans fame, died Thursday morning. The 29 year old reality star allegedly choked on his own vomit in his sleep following a night of partying with friends. TMZ is reporting that he had taken "some pills" earlier that night.
Knight rose to fame for his on again, off again tumultuous relationship with fellow cast mate Jemmye Carroll, and for knowing how to push the buttons of pretty much every person in the house.
One of those people was Frank Sweeney. The two nearly came to blows during their time together on Rivals II, culminating in an attack at the reunion show.
Jemmye claims drugs played a role in Knight's behavior that evening.
Prior to the reunion, the two headstrong rivals had gotten into a very heated back and forth exchange on twitter, that ended with Frank eerily predicting Knight's untimely death.
We'll all be watching with a heavy heart.

Talk about the tale of two weeks. Last week's waiver wire gem Jonas Gray followed up his 200 yard, 4 touchdown performance with a healthy DNP, and LeGarrette Blount goes from sulking on the Steelers sidelines to scoring twice for the hottest team in the league. As always, play Belichick running back roulette at your own risk, but Blount should be able to get your score high in the coming weeks.
This move is purely speculative, but one would think that it would behoove the 0-10 Raiders to see what they’ve got in Latavius Murray, the second year back out of Central Florida. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Dew have both been hot messes this season, leaving Oakland with nothing to lose by looking to the future. Murray averaged more than 10 YPC in the Raiders 13-6 loss to the Chargers. They’ve got a brutal schedule coming up from a rushing perspective (K.C. twice, San Fran, St. Louis and Buffalo for the remainder of the fantasy season) but he is someone to keep an eye on in the event he catches lighting in a bottle as their pitiful year trots to a close.Here's what Murray did last week: 4 carries, 112 rushing yards, 2 rushing touchdowns
Assuming he gets cleared from his concussion, he is a top 25 play at running back this week.

The Colts saw all 50 shades of Jonas Gray Sunday night. The undrafted rookie, and former standup comic, put up the best fantasy game of the 2014 season, carrying the ball 38 times for 199 yards and four touchdowns in the blowout win. Starting a Belichick running back can be a dicy proposition, but if you strike gold on a night where that’s their game plan it can win the week for you. At this stage in the season Gray must be owned in all formats, though his low floor puts him more in the RB2/flex discussion until we start to see some consistency.

Martavis Bryant, WR, Steelers- Week 9 Stats: 3 rec, 44 rec yds, 2 rec TDs
“Anytime your quarterback throws 6 touchdowns and passes for more than 500 yards his receivers stats are bound to be inflated. But don’t let Sunday’s once-in-a-season (if you’re lucky) outburst scare for you from dropping some serious waiver budget on Bryant, the rookie out of Clemson. He’s now scored three times in the last two games, emerging as a big time red zone threat.”
