Is it time to pick up Daryl Richardson off the waiver wire? What type of Dynasty value does he have? STL gave him carries over Pead.

Admin
Reply to  Zach Levitt

I would. It’s safe to say that after the preseason and one regular season game that the Rams think more highly of him than Pead. Now, that’s quite possibly going to change, but if Jackson gets hurt, Richardson has earned no worse than a time share with Pead. In a deep league, you could do a lot worse.

Would you drop Dion Lewis, Javon Ringer, or Alex Green for Richardson?

What to do about Michael Turner? Is it too early to give up on him? Rodgers and Snelling are gone…. heck I might as well go get Richardson above – eh?

Ryan Trimble

This is very early, so much could change. But first glance who should I start in week 2: Brandon Lloyd, Steve Smith or Piere Garcon. Steve Smith looks like the obvious choice for me against that NYG defense that Romo just torched.

Current set starters are Arian Foster, Brandon Marshall and MJD. Would you start any of those three(above) over MJD? Or is he 100% back for you guys.

12 team 1 PPR league, big play bonuses.

BAM Nation
Reply to  Ryan Trimble
9 years ago

I read Garcon is hurt, but should still play in wk2.

MJD is up against a tough Taxans defense so Smith may be the best choice at this point agains a weak NYG secondary.

Will wallace and/or richardson be decent plays? (assuming matthews is cleared for contact)

Ashley Moser

I meant Matthews not richardson my bad. thoughts on his comeback if cleared for contact?

danoneill

I have to choose between Vick Ballard who is currently on my roster or I can take Daryl Richardson or Aldrick Robinson off the waiver. What are you thoughts?

My other question is Dwayne Allen. It looks like Fleener solidified himself. I can drop Allen for the above mentioned players. Cecil Shorts is also an interesting look. Should I stick with Allen?

Thanks Jeff. I made this post before I saw Hawkins play last night. I also should mention I own Isiah Pead so I am worried about Richardson jumping in front of him and having the odd man out. I am really thinking about dropping Allen for Hawkins because after last night he looked like he locked up the number 2 WR spot in Cicny. I will hold on to Ballard over Richardson for the time being.

George Najm

Hankerson Brazill hold em?

Or chase things like Martellus Bennett or Robinson?

I have a pretty strong starting line-up:
1 QB, 1 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE and 2 Flex
QB: Stafford
RB: Ray Rice, Foster, CJ.4K
WR: Fitzgerald, Welker
TE: Hernandez

Fitz/ Welker/CJ.4K just killed me this week, as backups I have Antonio Brown, Randal Cobb and Miles Austin. Are any of these three an individual I should think about starting (Welker really worries me) or should I just stick to my guns and see what happens.

Thanks a ton guys…

I’m in a touchdown scoring only league. I can start two running backs next week. Ridley, Marshawn Lynch, or Alfred Morris. I’ve got Ridley penciled in and I’m leaning towards Morris against the Rams while Seattle finds their way with Wilson. Is this correct or would you start Beastmode over Morris regardless?
Thanks.

Luis Cardenas

PPR league
Start 2 rb 2 wr and a flex from the list below:
Lynch
McFadden
Morris
TRichardson
Hunter
Quizz Rodgers

Miles Austin
Britt
Brazil
Jennings
Moore
S. Holmes
Broyles

Anyone you think I should be looking to get rid of?

cafare52

I have Fitz, Julio, Cruz, and Kenny Britt at WR

My RB’s are Turbin, Royster, J. Best, Shonn Greene, and Ballard.

I’m %$#@ at RB unless I make a trade. Who should I target and who might be worth any of the WR’s mentioned above?

Chad Benner
Reply to  cafare52
9 years ago

Alfred Morris can be gotten on the cheap and with a line-up like yours you need to take a shot at a potential RB1. I wouldn’t trade any of those WR for him though. Do you have anyone else worth trading? You should get more than Morris for those WRs. Maybe Reggie Bush? Sproles?

Ppr league. Which two of these four should I start?

Torrey Smith
Randall Cobb
Brandon Lloyd
Alshon Jefferey

Thanks

Tony Hall

I’m thinking Randall Colb will slide into the 2nd receiver role while Jennings is dealing with his groin. Do you think that would be James Jones instead?

Andrew Stein

Eli Manning vs Matt Stafford this week.

Usually stafford is the easy answer, but he’s playing SF (who rodgers did well against, but it’s still san francisco . . .)

0.5 PPR

I definitely need one of the following running backs. I’ll need 2 for the flex spot if garcon can’t go . . .
Donald Brown
Willis Mcgahee
Shonn Greene

A.J. Caulineau

Thinking of rolling with Alfred Morris and BJGE this week and putting T. Richardson on the bench until he shakes off the rust. T. Rich looked indecisive on most of his carries. Seemed like his football vision is quite there yet. Agree or Disagree sitting T. Rich in favor of BJGE ?

Zach Levitt

1. Pick 2 non-PPR: Chris Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Ahmad Bradshaw

2. Palmer or Luck

Ryan Macnamara

At WR Boldin vs Philly, McCluster vs Bills or Crabtree vs Detroit? – I need 1 for this week

And…. TE Jared Cook vs SD or TE Fred Davis vs Stl…. which one?

Thanks.

Matt Wertz

Jon Lambrecht

Hey guys. Need to pick at least 2 out of this group. Chris Johnson, BJGE, Ingram, Dwyer, DeAngelo W.

Cutler or M.Ryan this week….? I’m leaning Ryan but Cutler is interesting.

Is B. Lafell worth a start vs a suspect N.O. defense as a #3 wr or flex?

for the 2RB/WR + WR/TE spots I need to pick 3 from the following:

CJ2k
Doug Martin
TRich
Wallace
A Brown
Bowe

Thanks in advance for the help!

Eli or RG3 in a 4pt/TD league?

Need to start 3 of these RBs in a non-PPR: (is my order correct?)
Ridley
DMartin
JCharles
DBrown
SGreene
Ingram
BenTate

And who’s the better redraft pickup for the rest of the year, James Jones or Randall Cobb? Or neither because Jennings is coming back eventually?

packer11491
9 years ago

Jay Cutler against Packers D or Ben Roethlisberger against Jets D?

Also for my Wr I have Roddy White, Miles Austin, Marques Colston, Kenny Britt, and Randall Cobb.. Pick 2. (I am concerned about Roddy White getting more and more taken away from him by Julio Jones.

Adam Johnson
9 years ago

I need to start 2 WR and 1 RB/WR but I cant decide from a list of: Hakeem Nicks, Marques Colston, Damarious Thomas, Randall Cobb, Ryan Matthews and Doug Martin.

PPR League, all TDs = 6pts

Adam Johnson
Reply to  Adam Johnson

Are any of James Jones, Crabtree, Britt, or Jeffrey worth a start over Vincent Jackson this week?

Thanks!

Vince B

Hey there Jeff,

PPR league question for your review: I am looking at my options for a potential “bye-week” WR with some upside. Wallace has a Week 4 Bye. And AJ Green is my second WR. At this moment my “backup / bye-week” WR’s that are on my bench consist of G.Little and K.Wright. However the following are some decent WR’s currently available: B.LaFell, D.Jones, R.Streater, A.Jeffery, and A.Hawkins to mention a few. Any recommendations? Or hold what I have??

I also have S.Vereen as a very deep RB backup. CJ.Spiller is my main RB backup and I.Redman is behind him. Forte and Martin are my starters. Should I hold S.Vereen or consider the likes of R.Turbin, V.Ballard or even C.Brinkley? Or maybe pickup two WR’s instead and stick with my current RB backup duo?
