Non PPR pick 2 of:

Spiller Jackson Stewart Blount. I am leaning towards playing both Buff backs is this smart?

Should i play Dalton this week against the steelers. I think AD has proved himself to be a starter, you agree?

Luck54
Reply to  Jeff Haverlack

I got Big Ben but I need a flex start so I was thinking Dalton or Fitzpatrick. Would you play Fitzpatrick over Dalton since he is playing the weak Titans pass defense?

I have Mathews, Julio and Charles on bye weeks………..PPR league who is a better start at my flex, Mendenhall, Crabtree, or Sydey Rice. Quick note, I also have Vernon Davis starting and a little worried if I wait for Mendenhall…..I lose the chance for Rice or Crabtree.

Would I be crazy starting Crabtree over rice

Jeff, Got a trade question for you. I see you recently ranked RG3 as #3 dynasty QB, a little higher than the other guys. I can get Ryan Mathews for RG3 straight up. What do you think about that value?

Thanks, Rod

Jeff, Matt Ryan on a bye and Locker up in the air, I need to pick 1 FA QB from the list of 5. Bradford, Palmer, Weeden, Skelton or Sanchez? I don’t have space for Hasselbeck and Locker unless I drop Pierre Thomas or Hartline. 1pt for reception. What do you think, thanks

Tom Smith

Start 3:

Mendenhall, Ridley, Powell, Redman, Hillman, Wilson, DeAngelo Williams

Hey. Need an replacement DL instead of bye week Elvis Dumervil. Following are on waivers
Geno Atkins
Brandon MeBane
Derrick Morgan
Robert Quinn
Cam Jordan

Points for sacks, tackles, assits, FF, FR, INTS and tackles for loss

Not sure that Jeff answers IDP sit/start questions…

If this a dynasty league, Robert Quinn should not be on the waiver wire. He was a shocking inactive/healthy scratch on Sunday after a 3-sack performance the week before, and I haven’t been able to find out why.

If you need upside and Quinn is playing next week, it’s Quinn. If you need a consistent 7 points or so, Geno Atkins is probably your best bet.

Atkins makes DET’s and TB’s picks of Suh & Uh…damn…look bad. Atkins is an absolute monster

Allen Sarvinas
Reply to  Allen Sarvinas
9 years ago

McCoy…even though hes outperforming Suh now

Reply to  JBlake
9 years ago

Agreed here.

Regardless, though, I’d try to make Quinn work given his upside potential long-term (assuming this is a dynasty).

Ashley Moser

my TE’s have been midling and i really need a good start from one. Please help to make the best decision.

non-ppr
fred davis-consistently around 55 yards
gresham-finally found the endzone
brandon myers-getting more and more targets and seems to be only a matter of time to reach endzone

JBlake

Freeman vs Saints or Bradford vs Packers (bye week fill-in in for Matt Ryan)? I’m thinking either one could be a shootout, and both QBs are coming off good games. Flip a coin?

nick_depinho

PPR — Flex spot

Brandon LaFell vs Dallas
Alex Green vs St Louis
Kendall Hunter vs Seattle
Chris Givens vs Greeb Bay

Im leaning Alex Green who ya got?

Missed the cut for tonight’s game, but imagine you started Bowman.

Would say:
Bowman
Hawk
Mayo
James (not crazy about Briggs match-up this week)

Would have said McDonald, but I guess your decision must be made given the game already started.

Reply to  Steve Wyremski
9 years ago

Nvm. Was a week ahead – was thinking Chicago / Carolina. Would go with Briggs against Detroit as the 4th.

Allen Sarvinas

Pick 2
Ward
Branch
Stevie Brown
My boy Prosinski who will be in the field alot with his O…lol
I know the top 2 are usually a given, but I do not like Branch’s matchup while #Redskins give a ton of IDP pts which is in Brown’s favor.

Reply to  Allen Sarvinas
9 years ago

Stevie Brown – agree on match-up
T.Branch – I don’t care for the match-up either, but I just don’t trust Ward right now after three horrible weeks.

Allen Sarvinas
Reply to  Steve Wyremski

I appreciate the help. Funny about Briggs, I read the first @PostSports and it completely contradicted what I’ve been hearing, but then saw TE 2nd and immediately changed my lineup. Yes, Bowman, even though he’s not on his last years mark, is a must start except in extreme cases.
It hurts not to start Kerrigan considering his big play ability, but losing Rak and Cariker really hurt his value.

Hey Jeff,

.5 PPR

QB
Ponder(v Arizona) or Newton(v Dallas)?

1 RB, 1 Flex
Frank Gore(v Seattle)
Mikel LeShoure(@Chicago)
Antonio Brown(@Cincinnati)
Anquan Boldin(@Houston)
Jason Witten()

Thanks!

So I have an interesting decision to make concerning my backfield. I have to chose one of the following to start. Half point ppr for rbs.

Lynch on a thursday night against the nasty 49ers run defense

or

Hold out hope the Trich plays on sunday against the colts.

My other backs are on bye so the only guy it really leaves me on my bench with scoring chances is Drich from the rams.

Should I roll the dice on trich and if he sits go with Drich?

HI Jeff – I know this isn’t lineup advice, but it is roster advice…. I wanted to get your thoughts on a trade offer that has been made to me….

Brandon Bolded and Dez Bryant for Frank Gore. On the surface, I’d like to take this trade as I don’t believe Gore is long for the game, and Dez is pretty much a weekly plug and play. My problem is that Gore is my only somewhat reliable starting RB. Taking this trade probably does me in for the year, but is probably in my best longterm interest. I’m currently sitting 3-3 and honestly don’t feel my team will really compete this year?
This is my roster:
QB: Cutler, Ryan, Locker
RB: Daryl Richardson, Frank Gore, Shonn Greene, Tate, Stewart, D. Will, Shane Vereen
WR: Blackmon, Greg Jennings, Calvin Johnson, Lance Moore, Stephen Hill, Mike Williams, James Jones GB
TE: Fred Davis, Kyle Rudolph Minn

I appreciate any insight you can give me!

The Vich

I’d love to see a separate weekly thread for trade value discussions like we have for sit/start, waiver wire, and calling your shot. I know I could always go to the forum, but…I don’t want to.

PPR Leauge flex spot – Mike Wallce, Stevan Ridley, CJ Spiller

Matthew Birchler

Hi there, big bye week for me, so I could use a few pieces of advice.

QB – (Matt Ryan on Bye) Sam Bradford vs GB, or should I try to pick up someone off waivers. Options off waivers are:
Carson Palmer vs JAC
Brandon Weedon @ IND
Josh Freeman vs NO
Tony Romo @ CAR

Flex (PPR) – Stephen Hill @ NE, Daryl Richardson vs GB, T.Y. Hilton vs CLE, Jon Stewart vs DAL ?

David Skarin

I need to pick two of these guys, Non-PPR with 1 point per 20 return yards:

Brandon Bolden

Kendall Wright
Kyle Rudolph

Thanks!

Reply to  Jeff Haverlack

Thanks, that’s what I was thinking. I am very light in the RB department, with just 2 guys that are starters, McFadden and Mathews, and they could go down brushing their teeth.

Dan Chung
9 years ago

Mikel LeShoure or Stevie Johnson for FLEX in .5 PPR? I have Megatron locked in as WR1, if that matters.

Ryan Macnamara
9 years ago

1/2 PPR

1) Pick one: Ingram or Jstew?
2) Pick one: Dez Bryant or kenny Britt?
3) Pick one: Greg Olsen, Kendall Wright, or Mikel Leshoure?

Thanks so much guys!

PJ Markey

Jared Cook or Martellus Bennett

Non ppr, big play bonus points need to pick 2

J stew vs Dallas
Crabtree vs Seattle
Lafell vs Dallas
Josh Gordon vs Indy

Ty Hilton vs Cleveland
Blount vs No

Thx

Kent McClanahan

Three leagues, three QB quandaries.

League one:
Freeman vs. Saints
Bradford vs. Pack
Romo @ Carolina
Schaub vs. Baltimore

I am leaning towards Freeman or Schaub.

League two – bye week fill:
Wilson @ San Fran
Hasselback @ Buffalo

Thinking Hasselback.

League three:
Stafford @ Chicago
Fitzpatrick vs. Titans

Toss up. Don’t want to bench Stafford but Chicago has killed almost every QB they have faced.

Mitch Jahnke

In pretty bad shape at running back for this week. Need to start at least 2, but can start 3 if needed. I think I will put Crabtree in as flex if I have to.

Fred Jackson
Legarret Blount
Kendall Hunter
Cedric Peerman
Phillip Tanner
Green-Ellis
Daryl Richardson
–I think its Jackson for sure, Green-Ellis, and Crabtree, but I could also see Blount, Peerman, Richardson, or Tanner out performing Green-Ellis. I also think Crabtree might be shut down against the Hawks this week. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Reply to  Mitch Jahnke

Roger Bahl

non ppr

I need to start 3 wr’s. I’m not liking Megatron’s matchup but I have to start him right? I actually feel pretty comfortable starting any of these Wr’s this week except maybe Rice. Probably have to start Calvin, Dez and Britt. What do you think?

Calvin @chicago
Britt @Bills
Dez
Denarius Moore vs Jacksonville
Sidney Rice
Josh Gordon @Indy

Brian Mearns

Tony Romo or Cam Newton going head to head?

What do you think?

Jeff,

Received a Trade Offer: Stafford and SJackson for Forte and KWright. My current QBs are Fitz and Romo. We run 2 RBs. In addition to Forte I have DMartin, CJSpiller and AGreen. It does not look like I will benefit from this trade. Any thoughts? Txs

Vince B
Reply to  Jeff Haverlack
9 years ago

Txs Jeff. Makes sense.

Would you start Fitz or Romo? DMartin or Spiller as RB2 along with Forte as RB1? In a PPR league.

Leshoure vs (chicago) or Blount (Saints)

Victor McNeal
9 years ago

Crazy scoring platform PPR and points for return yardage with some other awesomness happening as well.

I’ve got J Charles Murrary Leshore A.Brown Bolden Blount Tanner. Bye Weeks and injuries are hurting me this week and I have to start 2.

Leshoure is in and I am leaning towards Tanner. I don’t know why I just like what I saw last week and think out of the bunch he has the most big day potential even playing that change of pace role. I know Blount is going against that soft run D in NO but I just don’t think he will get a chance to exploit that Defense with Brees playing out of his mind and coming off a BYE. Thoughts?

Thanks again always appreciated

Torry Smith or Antonio Brown–non PPR
