  1. Team 1: Tannehill, CMC, Drake, Godwin, Allen, Kupp, Hooper, Sanders. I can see playing Mixon over Drake, but I would still flex Sanders Team 2 Tannehill, Jones, Conner, Adams, Pascal, Kirk, Andrews Good luck!
  2. Hurns or Ross, better stash for week 16 (standard scoring)?
  3. I like Deebo and Miles of that group. Maybe Kirk over Miles, but I'd probably go Deebo and Miles
  4. I don't trust Goff on the road against good defenses. The other two are close for me.. Baker may have a tad more upside, but on the other hand, I see Chubb having a field day running the ball. For a playoff matchup, though, more often than not I'd roll with the veteran with a good fantasy track record, and that's A-Rod.
  5. It feels weird benching Aaron Jones, but yeah, those are the 5 I'd pick.
  6. QB: I like Kyler or Jimmy-G over Ryan. Kyler has rushing upside, but Jimmy's game should be more high scoring. TE: With Olsen out, I like Thomas over Cook in PPR. I'd also be inclined to try to find a way to get Mostert in my lineup. I'm leery of both Singletary's and Mixon's matchups, so even though I would expect good volume from both of them, I think Mostert has more upside. I'd be more inclined to sit Mixon than Singletary, but all 3 are pretty close for me. Good luck!
  7. Standard scoring. I have DeAndre Washington and Tyler Higbee as potential FLEXes, and Hunter Henry is currently my starting TE. All play at 4pm EST. Everett is out. Jacobs is trending toward being active. If that continues, Higbee is pretty much the no-brainer FLEX. If Jacobs is inactive, though, suddenly I have an interesting decision. Washington becomes the no-brainer start, BUT, it's not obvious who to start between Henry and Higbee. Henry has been solid all year, but targets have dropped of late. He saved his day last week with a TD, but the Vikings have given up only 1 TE-TD all year. Henry probably gives a decent floor of 4-40-0, but not as much TD-upside as usual. Higbee has exploded while Everett has been out, but both of those were to TE-friendly defenses. DAL is more mid-pack than TE-friendly, and Goff is not nearly as good on the road against generally good defenses. FWIW, I was already a slight underdog in my matchup, and Tucker really let me down last night, so now I'm chasing upside. My gut tells me that Higbee has more upside than Henry, but more risk. BUT, I also can wait until the outcome of the early games to make this decision (and if Jacobs is active, the decision becomes moot.) So which would you start (Henry or Higbee) if you needed a safe floor, and which if you needed more upside? WHIR, post a link. Thanks in advance.
  8. My gut says Singletary over Mixon, only because Buffalo is fighting for a playoff spot and so will be super motivated to get the ball into their best playmakers as much as possible. I see Cincy getting down early and phoning in the second half, so even though Mixon should have a safe floor (similar to Singletary) I don't see him having as much potential upside. At WR, definitely play Robinson. At the other WR spot I would still go with Diggs over Slayton. Again, I'm biased towards teams that are fighting for playoff berths and playoff positioning, and I see the Vikings really working to feed Cook and Diggs, while easing Thielen in after the injury. Slayton is suddenly working among a crowded group of pass-catchers - who is going to be the odd many out? Nobody knows yet.
  9. Sanders. I like Brown a lot, but he is still operating on limited targets. Jimmy G is always looking Sanders' way, and that game should be a shootout since the 49ers defense is pretty banged up.
  10. I agree with the consensus. You need upside now. Tannehill is a good bet to get you 20, but not much more. Mahomes is always a threat to put up 35, especially at home, even in a supposedly tough matchup.
  11. Sorry for the late reply. If you didn't play Bell, in PPR I actually prefer Laird to Brown, especially if Parker sits. Laird is a good pass-catcher, and neither team in that game plays good defense, so I see that game as a shootout. I think Brown will have a good game too, but he is boom/bust with limited targets, so especially in PPR I think Laird is safer.
  12. Haha! I have Henry, and just picked up Higbee and Howard too, but more to block my opponent than anything. I'm definitely playing Henry, but if Everett sits I'm considering Flex-ing Higbee.
  13. Jets aren't a great matchup for TEs. I'd probably roll with Fells and cross my fingers - TEN has been vulnerable to TEs, and that game should be a shootout, so Fells has as much TD upside as any TE2/3.
  14. I like Samuel this week the best of the three options you mention.
  15. I would start Drake and sit Tate. If Jacobs sits, I would start Washington and sit Miller. I'm a little nervous about Miller this week in general, but of the options available (if Jacobs plays) Miller might still be your best for that spot. Since it's PPR, if Olsen sits and Gabriel plays, I might consider starting Thomas over Miller, otherwise I think you probably have to roll with Miller and take your chances. Good luck!
  16. I don't play in any keeper leagues myself, so I don't know how useful my advice would be. That having been said, of the two I think I actually have a slight preference for Ian Thomas. With Greg Olsen nearing retirement, I think Thomas has a good chance to step into a useful role a produce immediately in Carolina. As for Gordon, he doesn't have a big role in Seattle, so my guess is he moves on from there next year. Who knows who he signs on with, or if he'll have a connection with a new QB, or if he'll stay out of trouble, or if he'll ever be able to return to his former level of production - he is getting a little older now.
  17. It's fascinating to me to see to split among fantasy 'experts' on how they view Sony Michel this week. I have seen some say that, due to his recent inefficiency and White's domination of backfield touches and the Patriots' general offensive malaise that Michel belongs nowhere near fantasy lineups this week. I have seen others say that, due to the cake matchup, the heavily-favored nature of the game, and the goal-line upside, that Michel is a borderline must-start RB2. (I tend to lean toward the former argument, but with a bunch of mediocre options I'm willing to listen to all sides..) Standard scoring, Need an RB2 and a FLEX. Options available: Michel, Hyde, DeAndre Washington, Hurns, Diontae Johnson, OJ Howard, Higbee, Ian Thomas Here's how I'm inclined to rank them right now. Please offer your thoughts.. (WHIR, of course) 1. Washington (if Jacobs sits) 2. Hurns (if Parker sits) 3. Hyde 4. Thomas (if Olsen sits) 5. Higbee (if Everett sits) 6. Howard 7. Michel 8. Johnson (if Ju-ju sits) 9-13. Washington, Hurns, Thomas, Higbee, and Johnson if their corresponding time-share person plays. Not particularly relevant, since according to my rankings my two necessary spots would be filled in a worst case by Hyde and Howard. Would you make any adjustments to the above rankings? Thanks. WHIR (post link in reply).
  18. I prefer Washington. Miami is likely to be one-dimensional - they can't open holes for RBs at all. Laird is a decent flex play, more-so in PPR, due to his pass catching ability. I expect the Raiders to be more balanced, and Washington can fill both running and passing roles. Whoever starts for Oakland this week (Jacobs or Washington) should have a decent low-end RB2-level game with some upside.
  19. I agree. Go with AJ Brown unless you are a heavy, heavy favorite, in which case Beasley could be a safe PPR-only option (but I might take Brown anyway..)
  20. To clarify on what Bardu said... You lose your _waiver priority_, but you get your claim (that is, you get the player you claimed) So if you take Thompson with your #1 priority, you drop to the bottom of the list, and you only get Pascal if no other team claimed Pascal as their first waiver option.
  21. I'd go with Seattle. Still trying to win their division and mad about losing an important game to the Rams, it's a Seattle home game against a team giving up a lot of sacks who just fired their player-loved coach. Carolina might just start tanking on a level to rival Jacksonville, and defenses playing them should reap the benefits.
  22. Of the options you gave, I'd go with Mitch. He's been fine in 4 of his last 5 games, and in that stretch he has thrown for 3 TDs three times and run for a TD twice. Don't love that the game is at Green Bay, but as dart throws with upside, I think he has the best chance.
  23. 2QB League. I'm starting Watson but need a QB2. My options are: Rivers vs. MIN: Really rough through the middle of the season, but seems to be playing better since the bye, game is at home, Vikings D is not as fearsome as they used to be. Darnold at BAL: Brutal matchup on the road on 3 days rest. No thanks. Blough vs. TB: Yes, it's against the Bucs, but you tell me you're starting him in a playoff game. Go on. I dare you. And I preemptively call BS. Lock at KC: He's looked pretty good, but it's his first trip to Arrowhead. That place.. does things to people. OR Pick up RG3 on the hope that Lamar sits. Home game on a Thursday against a bad team. Heavy favorites. He won't need to do much except dump the ball off to Ingram and Hurst, and take 2 or 3 shots down the field to Hollywood. Plus, he has some rushing upside too. I'm still leaning toward Rivers, but at least picking up RG3 is tempting. Thoughts? Rivers or RG3, or if someone else on that list strikes your fancy, why? Thanks in advance. WHIR - post link in reply.
