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.

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):

WR: AB, Hill, Adams (but his calf injury worries me)

RB: Conner & Michel

Flex: Ridley & Tate  If Adams is out, then I would put Boyd in. Want to put Lynch here, but think LAC may get a big lead & OAK has to throw, which if so, they lean more on J Richardson. Good luck!

Kenny golladay or Josh Gordon tonight? 

.5 ppr 

 

I like Gordon.  He may be boom or bust, but I think he is more likely boom than Golladay.

Yep, I am in the same exact boat and I rolling with him. MVS is actually going to be my 3rd WR with Hilton being out. I choose him over guys like Taywan, Ryan Grant (all colts fill ins actually) and Ginn.

 

I figure if I am going down I would rather it be with a guy playing the Lions with Rodgers at QB. I know he is still extremely far from being any sort of safe, but I am assuming Cobb (hamstring) is out for sure, Adams (calf) seems banged up and will have Slay on him, and Allison (dizzys) could also be out. If all three of those are the case, I can easily see him getting 10 targets just off pure necessity. After I watched his college highlight film and the stuff from the preseason it at least seems like he can do something with them. 

 

I am worried one of the other random rookies on GB could end up with the day I am hoping for MVS..  But in Rodgers I trust. Let's go 

 

 

I'm thinking of doing the same (Hilton owner).   But I'm having trouble pulling the trigger because of the Lions #1 ranked pass defense.   I haven't seen any of their games but I'm assuming it's partly due to everyone running the ball against them as opposed to having a great secondary?

With the Thursday Night game I have Michel going due to the status of Mixon. Since he hasn't been cleared I can't risk having to plug Lindsay into my RB2 spot. So, that's going to leave the flex. Right now I'm starting Boyd, Ridley, and Golladay in the two WR spots and the flex. Would you start Mixon over any of them if he's cleared to play?

Start Mixon at RB. Gives you flexibility at flex on Sunday. I'd start Mixon over everyone listed.

Not sure IDP is being answered here. Anyone starting Margus Hunt tonight? I have to decided between him and Addison tonight. Addison has a juicy match up against the Giants OLine.

I would start Mixon over Golladay. Boyd and Ridley have to be started the way they've been playing

16-team PPR league.  I have 4 WR for 3 spots (2 WR and a flex).  Who to sit?

 

D. Adams @ Detroit

OBJ @ Carolina

A. Cooper @ LA Chargers

Josh Gordon v. Indianapolis

 

I have to sit Gordon, don't I?  I don't want to, but I have to.  It's either him or Cooper, right?

Looking for some advice in my standard league. Lost the last two weeks by less than 10 points combined. Really hurts considering I needed those close wins with Mixon out.

 

QB - Mahomes or Rivers? Rivers seems like the safer choice this week and they both scored the same amount of points last week. Mahomes has a much higher ceiling though.

 

RB - start 2 - Mixon and Miller. Maybe Mike Davis if we get some word out of Seattle with Carson out?

 

WR - start 2 - AB and Landry - those two are the safest.

 

Flex - Amari, Sanders, Boyd, or Gronk? Leaning Amari for his ceiling this week. He has blown up on my bench twice.

 

TE - Kittle - Leaning towards sitting Gronk with his injury status and TNF. Could also flex Gronk.

Amari Cooper will probably get Casey Heyward. But he is the safer play over Gordon.

Keelan Cole vs. KC or Corey Davis vs. BUF?
 

Many podcasts are saying that Davis is going to have to face the Bill's CB Tre'Davious White who held back both Davante Adams and Stefon Diggs to not more than 80-90 yards in back to back weeks...


Davis. Probably more of a "risk", but I'm not a Bortles believer.

Non-PPR, 2 flex, need to start two out of the three as my wr2/Flex 2.

Wr1: OBJ

Rb1:Hunt

Rb2: Barkley

Flex1: CMC

Cannot decide between Hill, Kupp, or JuJu.

 

And does John Brown being on my bench change anything? I didn't even consider him as an option initially.


Juju and Hill

A little help?

 

PPR:

Edelman vs. Indy

THill vs. Jax

 

PPR: Need 1.

DT vs. NYJ

Keke vs. Dallas

Stills vs. Cincy


Hill and DT. Part of me does want to play Keke, but I think it's too much of a risk in PPR.

I need week 6 help. Big Ben@Cincy or Jameis@Atlanta. Also, opponent has AB on his team. I'm leaning Jameis due to the awful Falcons D.


Big Ben. At the very least to minimize the production that AB can put up, but either way that should be a high scoring matchup. I really don't know what to think of the Buc's offense.

Oh man - so this is just an assistant coach forum under a different name?


This is a section within the Assistant Coach Forum to specially post about lineup questions. The goal is to clean up the forum so that trades, roster add/drops, and other "assistant coach" threads aren't being buried amongst the several sit/start threads that are usually made as we approach game day. I'm not sure how well it's going to work long term, as most sit/start questions are only being answered by 1 or 2 people (too many questions and responses in one location). But can't blame the RW staff for trying something. We'll see how it goes.
