PPR league choose 3:

Wallace, White, Cobb, Maclin, Colsten.

Reply to  Brandon Seal
9 years ago

White and Maclin should be in shootouts (against each other), and it’s tough to bench Colston right now. I like Cobb, but I’d like to see a little bit more out of him before I trust him as an every week starter over the other guys you mentioned.

Richard Smith

Do we even consider starting Bowe with Quinn at QB?

Reply to  Richard Smith
9 years ago

Absolutely. He’ll need to throw to someone, right? It’s not like Cassel was lighting the world on fire either, and they are playing the Raiders…

Can I ever trust DeAngelo in my lineup? 2 carries last week… I have Rice on bye this week, should I add someone like Vereen and throw them in my lineup?

Reply to  Sir Newtlesworth
9 years ago

I’d rather start Vereen than D-Will this week. In the past two games he’s played, he’s actually scored an aggregate of negative points. Vereen just has more upside right now.

Big play league, Wimbley had 16.5 last week who I gave Powell & 6th for…#buylow
Pick 2 S
Clark v Was
Jenkins v Den
Prosinski v GB (leave this Rki sitting this week v Rodgers)
Pick 1 LB
Hawk v Jac
Nicholas v Phi
Kerrigan v Pitt (my pick v mobile QB and bad OL)

Reply to  Allen Sarvinas

Pick 2 DE
Wimbley v Ind
Wake v NYJ
Irving v Set (hes so explosive but do or die pick w/good Marchioness)

Pick 1;TE (1.5ppr)
Bennett v Dal (Carter playing TEs well)
Keller v Mia

Pick 4 ppr
Floyd SDC v Cle
Rice v Det
Hankerson v Pit
Moss v Pit
Kerley v Mia
Cooper v SDC
(Missing Amendola and V.Brown SDC)
I could start Richardson Stop v NE

Reply to  Allen Sarvinas

I’ll speak to the IOP’s here.

For the TE, I’d go Keller. Miami’s pass D is putrid. For the WR’s, I’d go with Floyd, Kerley, Moss and I guess Rice. I’m more sold on the first three than I am on Rice…

Is Daryl Richardson in Stl worth a fliers over any of those WRs?

Avery Beck

Bowe or Nicks?

Reply to  Avery Beck
9 years ago

Leaning towards Bowe. The Cowboys DB’s ate up the Giants’ passing game earlier this year, and I still don’t believe Nicks is at 100%.

Ray Voeller

1/2 pt ppr , .1 pt rush/rec yd , .04 pt pass yd all tds 6 pts all turnovers -2. Starters 1 qb, 1 rb, 2 WR , 1 TE and 1 flex wr/te/rb. 2 pt bonus all tds over 50 yards.

starting M. Ryan , R Mathews , Julio , Jordy, Rudolph
Who do I start in flex if T. Rich can’t go… Gordon, Hunter if Gore is out doubtful or Alex Green. Steve Johnson & Green-Ellis on bye week.

Reply to  Ray Voeller
9 years ago

Yikes, that’s a motley crew. I guess I’d almost be tempted to ride the lightning and lean towards Gordon, who might’ve already established himself as the Browns’ best receiver. The Chargers secondary is nothing special.

Ray Voeller
Reply to  Eric Hardter
9 years ago

I was able to get Vick Ballard off waivers thinking he will be best option in flex over Gordon, A Green or Hunter. Thoughts ?

Ray Voeller
Reply to  Jeff Haverlack
9 years ago

Now that T. Rich has practiced all week should I start him at my flex spot? I am little nervous he’ll see 5-7 carries and be done. Leaning towards Alex Green.
New issue! With Jordy potentially not playing and Stevie Johnson on a bye who should I start between Justin Blackmon ( just traded Gordon straight up for Blackmon ) or Chris Givens. I get it neither great option but what can ya do when bye wk & injury strike at once. Leaning towards Blackmon if Jordy out.

Mike Wendland
9 years ago

Tannehill @ NYJ
or
Wilson @ DET

Also, for a PPR Flex Spot:
TE Moeaki (vs OAK), TE Paulsen (@ PIT), RB Andre Brown (@ DAL)?

Reply to  Mike Wendland
9 years ago

Tannehill, easy. His coach trusts him to throw the ball.

For flex, I’m thinking Paulsen. I doubt Cooley will be up to speed right away.

Kris H

Need to start 3 of the 5 WRs in a non-PPR league (10 yards rush or recieve = 1pt, TD = 6pt)

Brown, A vs Redskins
Fitzgerald, L vs 49ers
Jackson, D vs Falcons
Smith, S at Bears
Britt, K vs Colts

Also M. Ryan – at Eagles or RG3 – at Steelers (10 yard pass or rush = 1pt, TD = 6pt, Int = -3pt)

Reply to  Kris H
9 years ago

Start any WR against the Redskins, so Brown is in. I think DeSean Jackson can beat the Falcons’ DB’s, so I’d go with him. For the last spot, I’m going to get blasphemous and say bench Fitz. Britt hasn’t proven a ton, but the Colts defense is pitiful, and that game has the makings of a shootout.

Kris H
Reply to  Jeff Haverlack
9 years ago

Thanks guys. Thoughts on the second question – RG3 or Ryan this week?

Reply to  Kris H
9 years ago

RGIII until proven otherwise.

Forrest Cohn

0.5 PPR League
Pick 4 of these 5. (I am going to start 3 WR and 1 at Flex due to injuries to Murray and T. Rich)
Welker
Dez
Julio Jones
Colston
Kenny Britt

Runningbacks: Pick 1
J. Stewart
K. Hunter
M. Ingram

Right now I think I am going to start Stewart because he seems to be the lead back all of a sudden. The problem is they play the 49’ers.

Reply to  Forrest Cohn
9 years ago

Hmm, I’d say bench either Britt or Welker for the first five, and probably Britt. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little worried about Welker vs Finnegan.

For the RB’s, gotta be J-Stew. It seems he might be making his mark on that backfield…

mike slobodzian

Dynasty League 12 team normal. Would you trade T.Richardson and Blackmon for V.Jackson,A.Johnson and W.McGahee and i would give up a 1st round pick. We start 4 WR’s.

mike slobodzian
Reply to  mike slobodzian
9 years ago

I got T.Richardson and Blackmon.

Reply to  mike slobodzian
9 years ago

How can I put this…..NOOOOOOO!! You can’t trade a young stud and a young potential starter for a couple of old guys and a boom or bust player! The fact that he wants a 1st rounder in return is insult to injury. Sit tight…

USCwinsagain

Dynasty 1 ppr league; must start 1 flex, 2 WR, 1 RB. I plan to start D. McFadden and D. Jackson. Pick 2: M. Williams, A. Green, K. Ogletree.

Reply to  USCwinsagain

Additional fact: I have Mendenhall who may be healthy enough to start it looks like.

T young, r Broyles, b lafell

Pick 2

Ole J Belboe
9 years ago

PPR League. 8 teams only. Starting 1RB/1WR/2FLEX.

This means I can start 3WRs, and most of the time I do. Mathews is a top 10 flex on most FF-sites this week..so I am unsure..please pick 4 starters:

My first thought was Harvin, Wayne, Thomas and McCoy.

Mathews @CLE
McCoy vs. Atl

Harvin vs. TBB
Wayne @TEN
Austin vs. Giants
D.Thomas vs. NOS
Britt vs. IND

Thanks again! 🙂

Ole J Belboe

Another quick one:
I have Stafford in 7 leagues, including a dynasty. In most of them I have Ponder. Should I really have the guts to play Ponder against TBB at home on TNF over him..!? (Terrified to bench him..!)

Roger Bahl
9 years ago

non-ppr

Vick vs ATL or Luck at Tenn

also I need to start 3 wr’s

Julio, Calvin, and Dez or the obvious starts but they are killing me this year!

What about Decker, Moore, Britt, or Gordon instead.

Roger Bahl
Reply to  Roger Bahl

Moore as in D. Moore

kyle carlson

I have a decent team in my 2 keeper league. However, I am weak at RB. My current starting line up

QB Rodgers (A. Luck is the back up)
RB1 Trent Richardson
RB1 J. Stewart, Mendenhall (injured), D. Williams, Ingram, J. Bell
WR1 V Cruz
WR2 H Nicks
WR3 M Wallace

I also have Denarius Moore, K Britt, M Williams as my other WRs.

I offered Mike Wallace to another owner for Ray Rice. He countered Ray Rice for Victor Cruz. Fair offer in my opinion and probably helps both of us. One other factor is to keep Ray Rice next year, I will have to sacrifice my 2nd round pick and for Cruz only a 4th rounder.

Thoughts on this deal? Maybe package Nicks and one my bench guys for a two for one? I really like Cruz and think he is perhaps the top wideout if not now, will be over the next few years.

Matt Kornberg
9 years ago

I need to decide what to do with my WR’s

I’m currently starting RBush, Bradshaw, and Lynch at RB.

That leaves me 3 WR slots, for Wallace, MWilliams, Cobb, and MFloyd.

Or I can start all 4 and bench a RB. It’s a PPR league.

Thanks!

I’m in a 16 team, .25 PPR league. Currently my team sucks and is 1-6 and a guy offered to trade me Tannehill, 2013 2nd & 3rd rnd picks, 2014 2nd rnd pick FOR Maclin. Do I accept the trade? I really have no backup qb with Cassell being benched? Would Tannehill and the draft picks be better for my teams future or stick with Maclin?? I know this isn’t in regards to week 8 lineup advice and apologize, but looking for as many opinions on this trade I can get. Team/league info is below. Thanks so much!

QB: Schaub, Cassel, R Lindley(R)
RB: McCoy, Mendy, JStew, Blount, Stephens-Howling, Royster, Ivory
WR: Fitz, Maclin, Boldin, Amendola, A Roberts, L Jean, M Jones(R)
TE: Gates, Keller, B Myers
Starters: 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K
16 Team, 22 player roster, 0.25 PPR league

I’m in a deep 16 team league. There are really no decent free agents available.

1pt per 25 yds passing, 4pt TD, and -2 INT

Romo vs the Giants
or
Ponder vs the Bucs

Thanks!

hawkshoops

Who do you think will be the best play this week?

Steve Smith vs CHI
Brian Hartline vs NYJ
Chris Givens vs NE

Obviously Smith is the best receiver and has been the most consistent. But he is going up against the Bears who completely shut Megatron down. Givens is more risky but the Patriots are very vulnerable to the pass. And Hartline should get quite a few targets.

Jamie Battaglia

clayton westphal

Scoring only, i must use only two of the following
at least 1 RB. I am already down a TD and a player
as I used Harvin and VJax on Thursday and my opponant
had Martin.

I need the player with the best shot at 2 TD’s

Jamaal Charles vs SD Chargers
Stevan Ridley vs St Louis Rams
Reggie Wayne vs Tennessee Titans
Larry Fitzgerald vs SF 49rs

Yardage, Receptions make no difference

I am leaning to Charles and Ridley but Wayne has a good match-up
but I am not sure Luck has enough confidence to throw TD’s he is more
comfortable running them in.
Fitz has a terrible match up

Jamaal Charles is playing agaist Oakland not SD
