Gresham or Fred davis?

I would go with Fred Davis

Reply to  Ashley Moser

Gresham typically owns the Bengals and RG3 could be out. I’d go with Gresham.

which 2?
standard scoring
Ray Rice,CJ Spiller,Fred Jackson,Mikel Leshoure,Donald Brown,Jaquizz Rodgers

Reply to  tim halverson

Can’t ever bench Rice, After him, I’d start Spiller.

Michael L

Non-PPR

Mathews, Lynch, Mendy, R.Bush

Which one is riding the pine this week?

Reply to  Michael L
9 years ago

I’d bench Mendy. Players in the Thursday night games have been sluggish often this year, possibly due to the quick turnaround. This could be the case with Mendy coming off his 1st game.

Brady Lawson

pick 2

.5 ppr

Binns, J. Rodgers, Simpson, Givens

Reply to  Brady Lawson

I’d go with Rodgers and Givens.

PPR flex : Martellus, Bess, Gordon, Shonn, Quizz, Randy Moss

I’m leaning between Greene and Bess

dco002
Reply to  dco002

Or maybe Quizz… But Gordon may have emerged… But Martellus could snag a TD…. Ugh

Reply to  dco002

I like Bess the most there, but Bennett is tempting if he’s healthy.

Luis Cardenas

PPR
1 of each
cutler or rivers?
Myers, miller or Tamme?
two plus a possible flex
Tsmith, miles, britt, a brown, jones (gb), Hawkins

Thanks

Reply to  Luis Cardenas

Rivers
Miller
Torrey and Austin. Brown would be my next choice.

PPR League:

1 WR – Mike Wallace or Wes Welker?

1 RB – CJ Spiller, Jonathan Stewart, or Donald Brown?

Reply to  Jamie Battaglia

Welker & Spiller

Thomas Ball

Lost Rb Ryan Williams and need a bye week filler. The Fa list almost bare with only J.Bell(Det) and Powell (ARI) available or should i go with either Alex Green, B.Bolden or Tate as my Rb#2 with Forte on bye. Foster is my #1 and this is a Dynasty PPR. Thanks

Reply to  Thomas Ball
9 years ago

With the Benson news, you have to give Green a shot. Tate could go off at any time, but tough to predict that.

Jason Anderson

PPR.. I need to pick two of the following players.
Ridley vs Sea
Wallace vs Ten
Bowe vs TB
Hernandez vs Sea

Reply to  Jason Anderson

Bowe and Wallace

Chad Benner

Hartline, Maclin, Cobb, D Moore, K Wright – pick one (My other starter is Wallace which is a given).

1 pt every 10 yards receiving plus
distance scoring on TDs as follows:
0-9 yds 7pts
10-25 yds 9pts
26-50 yds 11pts
51+ yds 13 pts

Jon Denny

I know this isn’t the place for it but I need some help on a trade offer. I have until tomorrow night at 10PM to decide. Here is the offer: I would be getting Willis McGahee, Ronnie Hillman, Ryan Williams, Beanie Wells, William Powell and a late 2013 1st for McFadden and Chris Johnson. It’s a 10 man league and both Willis and Ryan can go on IR. My other rb’s are Trent Richardson, David Wilson, Lamar Miller and Ben Tate.

Reply to  Jon Denny
9 years ago

Jon,
That’s an easy pass for me, especially in a 10 team league, where studs are even more valuable. McFadden is worth more than those guys alone.

Jon Denny
Reply to  Ryan McDowell
9 years ago

Thanks for your input. I told him I probably wouldn’t do it and then he countered with Mark Ingram instead of McGahee and Hillman. Do you think that makes the offer any better?

Vince B
Reply to  Jon Denny
9 years ago

I agree with Ryan….McFadden is a keeper. Ingram does not change that. Keep what you currently have there. Nice depth plus Johnson may show up especially with Ringer out.

Chad Benner
Reply to  Jon Denny
9 years ago

Absolutely do NOT make the trade!

You get nothing back.

Vince B

Looking for a 3rd RB to server as a backup and/or Bye filler. FA’s in my PPR league are Alex Green, John Starks, William Powell, and Alfonso Smith. Who do you recommend?

Vince B
Reply to  Vince B
9 years ago

Also, current QB situation: Have Romo and Kolb on my team. Smith is a FA. Keep what I have or make a move? Romo and Smith may have the tougher schedules. If Romo could only turn things around. Tough matchup with BAL this week.

BB33

Non PPR – Who to start as my rb2? CJ, Tate, Hunter, W. Powell or try to snag Green & plug him in?

Ashley Moser

In non-ppr, which two for this week’s match-ups?

Roddy, demaryius, wallace, denarius moore?

Ashley Moser
Reply to  Ashley Moser

Ammended:

non-ppr which three:

roddy, demaryius, wallace, denarius moore, demarco murray?

gojakey

Convaluted scoring system with 1 point per first down and bonuses for 100 yards and big plays

Start 1 at RB : McCoy, Run DMC, Mathews, Lynch

Start 2 at WR : Megatron, Roddy, Nicks, Harvin

Start 2 at flex : Best of above

I know that the options are strong and it could come down to gut calls only

gojakey
Reply to  Jeff Haverlack

Thanks,

I worried that DMc may be taken out of the game rushing wise if Atlanta go up big, and am more tempted by Mathews

Thanks for the reply though

Josh Balaberda

For my RB2 after Reggie.

Spiller or Fred? Or do I do something crazy and play Blount?

Josh Balaberda
Reply to  Josh Balaberda

For got to add. Not PPR.

Matt Wertz

I am starting Wayne or sure, need 2 more WR. PPR, Dez Bryant, DeSean Jackson, Torrey Smith or Brian Hartline.

Thanks

Rodney Dawson
9 years ago

How do you rank this flex list, no ppr? Thanks Jeff.

Gordon v Cin
Gresham @ Cle
DHB @ Atl
Hunter v NYG

I’m already starting Gore. Played Hunter last week, too and it paid off. What do you think about that as an insurance policy on Gore at RB2? Hunter seems to be carving out 8+ touches/week or is it still too early on him?

Matt Caldwell

non-PPR

Pettigrew or Finley?

Brian Mearns

Flacco OR Romo going head-to-head!

Thane Obijeski

Hi Guys,

PIck two: Charles, Doug Martin, Spiller, Turner
.5 ppr

I like Turner and Martin’s matchups… Spiller did nothing last week.

What do you think?

Danton Goulet
9 years ago

Need to start 3 WRs out of this group in a non ppr format. Starting D Thomas and Bowe but not sure on the third between Britt, Bolden, and Hartline. Gotta start Britt if he is a full go right?
Thanks for everything you do!

Victor McNeal

PPR league starting 1QB 2RB 2WR 1TE 1FlexRB\WR\TE

I’ve got decisions to make Bowe Fitz Maclin T.Smith and Avery at WR
Murray Charles Leshoure and Bolden at RB

5 of these guys have to take the field which 5? Right now I’m leaning towards a Fitz Bowe Murray Charles and Leshoure in my flex. But I really like Smith and Averys Matchups and I feel like Maclin is due for a big one but I’d rather leave him on my bench and wait for him to show me that he is just fine. So instead of agonizing over targets, receptions and matchups I’m leaning towards touches. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Dmartin, GJennings, GTate, SGreene

Jeff Cobb

Got a few PPR questions:

Pick 1 – Powell vs BUF, Jacquizz vs OAK, or Bolden @SEA (I am starting Ridley already)

Pick 1 – Britt vs PIT or Josh Gordon vs CIN

Pick 1 – Sanchez vs IND or Russell Wilson vs NEP (not great choices, I know. could also get brady quinn @TB off the wire)

Thanks for your help!

Jeff Cobb
Reply to  Jeff Cobb

Just picked up Ballard after the Donald Brown news. Should I start him over anyone in the Powell, jacquizz, bolden trio?

Ben or RG3 this week?

Grant Britton
9 years ago

Is Green Bay droppable at this point? They were a top real and fantasy defense in 2010, in 2011 they had some key injuries but still produced decent fantasy stats but this year they just aren’t reliable. Since they seem unreliable on a weekly basis and have a very tough matchup this week should I cut bait and start using the free agent defense with the best matchup routine? For example, the Falcons are avaialable and their ytd performance and matchup are both better than the Pack.

Tom Smith

Who to start in my WR3 spot this week? Nate Washington, Mario Manningham, Nate Burleson, Titus Young? Thanks.

Mark Harell

Non-PPR Standard Scoring with passing TD’s also worth 6 pts and points bounus for length of td Start: QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE), 1 K, 1 DST

QB: Ryan, Cutler
RB: Murray, CJ2K, J Stew, D. Wilson
WR: Nicks, D. Jax, DHB, Britt, Tate, Hankerson, Gordon, TY Hilton
TE: Hernandez, Rudolph
K: Hanson
DST: Bucks
Obviously injuries have done a number on my roster. I’ve got Ryan, Murray, D. Jax and Rudolph locked in (Unless it looks like Hernandez is going to play). My question is who would you start at RB 2, WR 2, and Flex? As always thanks for the help.

Hey I know this is the wrong place to ask but I have a question about a trade that ends tonight. This guy wants Chris Johnson and would Give me Brian Hartline and Donald Brown. I know Brown is out for a few weeks but i don’t need a rb that badly and Hartline could just be a fluke. I’m just tired of Chris Johnson riding my bench. Any input is appreciated.

Torn on who to start at QB this week. 6 pts. per TD, 1 pt. per 25 yards, bonus pts. for 250 yards and 400 yards, also bonus pts for 50 yards rushing.

Aaron Rodgers vs. Houston
Andrew Luck vs. NY Jets

I know you don’t bench your studs but IMO I’ve got two of them. I kinda want to start Luck because of the bad match-up for Rodgers, but at the same time, I usually prefer guys playing on Sunday Night or on Mondays.

Jamie Battaglia
