NFL Start/Sit Thread 2018 Week 5

 

This thread is for discussing who you're starting and/or sitting for week 5 of the 2018 NFL season.

 

Because most non-obvious start/sit decisions depend on roster/format/league-specific context, feel free to include any of these considerations in your start/sit questions. Comments along the lines of "Who's Starting Player A?", "I'm Starting Player B over Player C", etc. in player threads may be moved to this thread or removed, at the discretion of the RW forums staff.

Who should I start? Buck Allen or Kenyan Drake? 

I’d go with Allen for this week. He’s the goalline back and Collins has to regain the coaches trust so Allen may see some extra carries this week. Drake has been awful and Miami just isn’t good.

Who should i start? Im going Gordon and Mark Ingram as my starting rbs, diggs as my wr1, but have tyler boyd, john brown, doug baldwin and marvin jones for wr2 and flex, still have carlos hyde on bench. What do you guys think?

Hyde would be your safest bet but I like Boyd’s upside chances as the #2 this week considering Green will draw the coverage of the top cornerback.

I don‘t know wich QB to start... Always benched the better one the last 4 weeks, so I‘m asking you guys. (Standard Scoring)

 

Goff @SEA

Stafford vs GB

I’d go with Goff. He has 3 receivers that are killing it right now and Seattle’s secondary is weak.

PPR League

 

Hill vs Jaguars 

 

Diggs vs Eagles 

 

Boyd vs Dolphins

 

Choose one please. 

 

I have Kupp at the flex, but I can switch him out if need be. 

 

Thank you. 

Boyd has big upside and has been killing it as the #2.

Powell. He's the only one who you know will get sizable touches and will produce something. I don't trust Henry and Montgomery is in a weird 3 man timeshare so you can't rely on him

Tough match up, but Hunt could see an increase in targets with JAX pass rush. I like Golladay & Ridley for the other 2 spots, but no issues if you roll with Breida at flex instead.

 

Should I start Mahomes vs JAX or Rivers vs OAK? Leaning Rivers, but it sure is hard to sit Mahomes.

Start Mixon or Golladay in flex? I was going with Golladay until the news today. Now I’m unsure of what to do.

Thanks for the help. I'd say Rivers vs Oakland.

 

Mahomes definitely has the higher upside as a whole w/ that offense. But w/ the Jacksonville defense being as good as it is (their CB after Ramsey hasn't given up a touchdown in over 500 snaps), I'd say Rivers has a similar floor to Mahomes with potentially higher upside this week

Start Cousins or Mahomes? The context is I am playing the guy whose TE1 is Ebron so I am projected to lose by 20. Mahomes is normally an automatic start but he faces the top defense. The Eagles are a strong defense too but Fitz and Mariota had success against them.
