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.

John Brown or Tyler boyd standard scoring. This has been eating me all week long.

 

This is a nice problem to have as both have been doing well.  I would go with Brown based on match-up.

Just trades White and Fournette for Landry to replace Chester on 2nd Flex. Engram will be TE starter when back and Burton to sub. Thinking of moving freeman and K Cole to flex next week based on performance week 5.

Starting both Breida and Fuller today.  They're both dealing with hammys and are game-time decisions, but they've played through these injuries before.

Hi guys, I really need some help on rb decision. I have Gurley as no 1, but my options for rb2 is bad. Who would you guys pick for rb 2. The league is standard scoring; and I need points, so I am looking for upside. Right now I have Drake, Murray(Vikings), Gore, Penny on my roster. Available on waivers are Walton, Blue and Ty Montgomery. 

 

Thanks guys!

0.5ppr league

Have to start 2 (Jordan and Cohen on bye week):

 

R. Freeman

P. Lindsay 

A. Ekeler 

A. Morris

 

I'm thinking Lindsay for sure then either Freeman or Ekeler. Leaning Ekeler for ppr points and freeman being TD dependent

Need to start one of the following in PPR

 

Keelan Cole vs KC

R. Freeman vs Jets

A. Collins vs CLE

M. Williams vs OAK

 

or do I drop one of these to pick up

D. Westbrook vs KC

J. Nelson vs LAC

D. Lewis vs Buffalo 

 

I’ve got Bortles fired up as the QB

I am now planning on sitting Breida and start Golladay as my flex. 

 

Breidas health scares me and seceral OL guys are dinged too. But mostly Breida has multiple injuries. Golladay has been pretty consistent so I think I’m safe here.

Rodgers or Goff?

 

I'd go Goff when you consider Rodgers is banged up and missing weapons.

Goff is just on a roll right now.

I've answered a few, so maybe people can help me:


Shepard or Corey Davis in PPR

 

I'm leaning Shepard because he's been so solid last two weeks, Engram is out and CAR apparently is weak defending slot WRs. In addition, Davis has a very tough matchup with Davis who held down Diggs/Adams to bad games. Yet the "experts" are overwhelmingly in favor of Davis.

Between these 3, I'd start K. Cole if it's Royce Freeman and if it's Devonta Freeman then start him. I'm not really understanding the rest of your post (so do you have White for this week? or Landry? And do you have Engram and Burton but are starting Swaim over them?), so I'm just ignoring that part for now.

I want to say Cole, but I'm personally not a big believer in that Jags offense and don't know if starting Bortles and Cole would be such a good idea. If you have confident in their offense go Cole, if not go Collins.

Davonte Adams against DET or John Brown against CLE. Normally Adams is automatic but with the injury, I'm questioning things.
