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.

Jones, Njoku, BAL.

 

You think Njoku can keep this pace or increase it with Baker on the field?

Who should I flex? Full point ppr.

 

Hyde 

Powell 

Hines 

Allison 

Coutee 

Westbrook 


I think you've still got to go with Hyde. I would not go Coutee, Westbrook, or Hines for sure. But I would feel confident about Hyde's production. Help with mine above.

I don't think Njoku is a great option. Likely in the ballpark of 40+ yards and a possible TD. But I like the Cleveland offense better than ARI. And I don't think Kroft, Vannett, or the other options have any kind of reliability. Honestly, if you can get 5 points you did well. Kind of the reality of a TE streamer.

That's pretty much where I'm at right now. I have Hill in over Tate ATM, but I don't like it. Breida, LindSay (only because he's in a committee), and Wentz are the only ones I think I'm like 99% sure I'm sitting. I feel like I have to play Ridley this week, and Ingram I'm thinking about sitting just because he's been off for so long and Kamara has been... well Kamara. Matchup wise it makes sense to sit Hill, but that KC offense is probably the best in the league ATM (better than LAR). So I have a hard time sitting the WR1 on the best offense in the league...

This is difficult, but i would go for Freeman. He provides a nice floor and I think he will step up in production against the Jets.

I‘d pick Coleman, he‘s the most consistent with the safest workload of all three... Hines if you need a high ceiling.

Also remember that Hines plays Thursday... and there is a good chance Freeman is back for ATL this week.

Need some advice for my flex option. PPR

Kenny Stills

Larry Fitzgerald

Geronomio Allison

Christian Kirk

I have John Brown and Devante Adams starting. Looks like Gernomio isn't going to play. Feeling Kirk might have a breakout game. Any thoughts?

Full PPR, I  need 2 of:

 

Calvin Ridley @ Pitt

Chris Thompson @ NO

Aaron Jones @ Det

 

I got a bad feeling this is the week that Ridley regresses, but you'd have to ride the hot hand until it fizzles right???

Tevin Coleman. I still think he gets a heavy workload until D. Freeman gets back into the groove of things.
