Standard scoring H2H.  Leaning towards starting Michel over the others.  Anyone disagree?

A.Jones @ DET
Freeman @ NYJ
Lindsey @ NYJ
Michel vs IND

Jones is close for me but not quite there yet until he sees the carries. Pats have committed to Michel and with Edelman back things could really be looking up for that offense overall. Lots of plays, lots of carries, lots of scoring opportunities. Still Michel for me here.

I've got the same decision between Michel and Lindsay. I'm leaning Michel. Should have a heavy workload moving forward with Burkhead out for the season.

Literally need help with my entire lineup. I'm pretty sure I'm starting Mahomes and AB is a lock, but that's pretty much it. Help!

10 team standard league:

Start 1 QB:
Mahomes vs JAX
Wentz vs MIN

Start 3 WR (plus 2 flex, see below):
AB vs ATL
Adams @ DET
Hill vs JAX
Tate vs GB
Ridley @ PIT

Boyd vs MIA

Start 2 RB (plus 2 flex, see below):
Conner vs ATL
Michel vs IND
Ingram vs WAS
Lynch @ LAC
Ajayi vs MIN
Lindsay @ NYJ
Breida vs ARI

Start 2 Flex (from WR/RB options above):

I'm thinking Allen. Drake is too hard to trust at this point.

Not me, I drafted him high (Rd 6) but won't double down on a mistake. I have been playing and will continue to play Goff (Rd 15).

i'll play him, it's a home game, it's a division game, they typically play better at home, SEA may not win, but Wilson should still be able to put up his points.

I'd actually go Gordon, Hyde, Diggs, J. Brown, Boyd. I'd give Ingram a week to get back into things where Kamara is still a dominant factor in the backfield. Plus I don't really like Baldwin's matchup and have liked Boyd and J. Brown's targets as of late with decent matchups coming up.

J. Gordon vs IND. Not big on Thomas with an "okay" QB and I'd take a shot on Gordon where his matchup is significantly better.

Depends what your other options are. He's better than most QB streams this week. But there could be a better backup QB option.

I think Hyde can guarantee  10 points, but Allison against Detroit has a high ceiling, i think depends on your need this week, i would go Allison
