Pick 4 of these : Ryan Mathews, Fitz, roddy, Steve Johnson, josh Gordon or Titus young

Reply to  captainzach1
9 years ago

Definitely Mathews against the Chiefs. Don’t love White against Dallas or Johnson against Houston, but I’d give the edge to Stevie. Fitz has been a mess but can exploit the Packers. I like Young against the Jags as well. Gordon is so hit or miss, tough to trust, but could get a 50+ yard TD as well.

Need 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex (WR/RB). PPR.
RB: Alf, Martin, Forte
WR: Antonio Brown, Fitzgerald, Demarius Thomas, Denarius Moore, Britt, Nicks

Reply to  Matthew M
9 years ago

RB: I’d go Forte (matchup) and Martin (hot streak).
WR: Can’t bench Thomas right now, and I like Moore as well.
Flex: Morris against the Panthers.

Kevin Delaney

Non ppr
RB pick 2 : AP , Doug Martin , Alfred Morris
WR pick 2 : Stevie Johnson , Antonio Brown , Denarius Moore , Josh Gordon
TE pick 1 : Joel Dreesen , Dennis Pitta

Reply to  Kevin Delaney
9 years ago

RB: Struggling with AP against the ‘Hawks, but you can’t bench him. Martin as well.
WR: Really like both Brown and Moore with their matchups.
TE: Pitta did nothing against the Browns last time. Go with Dreesen.

Need to pick two of the following. No PPR, 5 bonus points for 75+ yards.

Calvin Johnson @ Jacksonville
Jeremy Maclin @ New Orleans
Eric Decker @ Cincinnati

Reply to  Vendetta .

Tough call. Never, ever bench Calvin, so that’s one. I love the Eagles’ matchup against NO, but Decker has just proven more this year.

Josh Balaberda

Non PPR:

Which 2 RB from :Spiller, R.Bush, Stewart, Fjax
Which 3 WR from: AJG, Julio, Nicks, Marshall

Reply to  Josh Balaberda
9 years ago

Can’t really bench Spiller, so that’s one. I’d also go Bush against the Colts. For WR’s, I know it’s blasphemous, but I’d probably bench Nicks.

Ryan Krcil

For the past 7 of 8 weeks I have not been able to pick the right QB out of Brees and Ryan. The only week I got right was when Matt Ryan was on his bye week. For the love of god, please help me get it right this week. The obvious pick is Matt Ryan right? I dont even know any more

Reply to  Ryan Krcil
9 years ago

Ha, I was going to say Brees. Ryan has a realllly tough matchup against a stout Cowboys pass D.

Dan Chung

Dalton or Rivers? Sigh.

Reply to  Dan Chung

Yikes. Rivers, I guess?

screamingevils

In a standard scoring league start 2 rb 2 wr and a flex have to choose from these.

Doug Martin
Darren Mcfadden
Ray Rice
Julio Jones
Victor Cruz
Randal Cobb

Thanks

Reply to  screamingevils
9 years ago

Never bench Rice, and you can’t bench Martin right now. For WR’s, I’d hate to bench Julio, and I don’t think you can bench Cruz. For Flex, I’d go with McFadden…more guaranteed touches. Love Cobb’s upside, but he hasn’t proven as much as the others yet.

Mike Wendland

Cassel @ SD or Wilson at home vs MIN?

Reply to  Mike Wendland
9 years ago

Neither? I think I’d go with Wilson. Crazy home field advantage there in Seattle.

Dustin Bennett

Standard scoring non-PPR, I need one WR and a flex
VJax, Cobb, Britt, D.Moore, CJ1K, McGahee

Reply to  Dustin Bennett
9 years ago

Oakland’s pass D is ragged, so I’d go with V-Jax. For flex I think it has to be McGahee, given the matchups.

Danton Goulet
9 years ago

At QB do I go either Rivers, Vick, or Dalton?
And at RB I have to start 2 between McGahee, Mathews, and Dwyer?
This is a non PPR standard 6 points for all TDs.
Thanks guys!

Reply to  Danton Goulet
9 years ago

If Vick is starting, you have to take him against the Saints’ pathetic D. For RB’s, bench Dwyer. Too much uncertainty there.

lostcause

Need 3 of the following RBs. PPR.

Arian Foster
Jamaal Charles
McFadden
Jonathan Stewart
Sproles

Thanks!

Reply to  lostcause
9 years ago

Foster is locked in, and I’d go with Sproles as well in a full PPR format. For the last spot, I expect Charles to get a big bump in workload this week, so I’d probably go with him.

Jamie Battaglia

PPR Flex spot – J Stewart, D Brown, C Shorts

Reply to  Jamie Battaglia
9 years ago

J-Stew. They’re trying to make him the feature back, and Jon Dwyer just ran all over the Redskins.

rodney711
9 years ago

Non PPR

3-WR Cobb, M. Williams, A. Roberts, A. Brown and T. Smith
1-TE Olsen, Bennett and Pitta
1-RB F. Jackson, A. Brown and A. Green……. Pretty sure who, just checking cause Brown is scoring TDs.

Thanks

Reply to  rodney711
9 years ago

WR: Ride Williams and his hot streak against the Raiders, and Brown should do just fine against the G-Men. For the third, I’m leaning towards Cobb, especially if Jordy sits. Toss-up between he and Torrey.
TE: Olsen is playing the Redskins. Nothing more needs to be said.
RB: Def. F-Jax, even against Houston. Green has been worthless and Brown is a craphsoot for playing time.

sean mcguigan

Need to start 3 d Thomas aj green Percy Hardin and Vincent Jackson……Thomas and green are must starts and would normally consider Harvin one as well but tough matchup and Vincent Jackson has a good one which makes it tougher

Reply to  sean mcguigan
9 years ago

Never sit AJ Green, and I generally feel the same about Harvin/Thomas. V-Jax has a great matchup, but again, he’s been boom or bust. Harvin and Thomas get the touches every week.

Danton Goulet
9 years ago

Have to start 3 Wrs in a non PPR format. DThomas, Bowe, Britt, S. Moss, Boldin, Hartline. Obviously I start DT and Bowe, but with the Britt matchup with Chicago do I try another or just roll with him?
Thanks.

Reply to  Danton Goulet
9 years ago

Thomas is a must-start, and Bowe has a good matchup (they’ll likely have to throw). After that, I like Hartline with a plus matchup against the Colts (no Vontae Davis). Tannehill will find him if he plays.

lee colclasure
9 years ago

2 WR, 2 RB, 1 flex, standard scoring, non-ppr

RB: McFadden, bush, Bradshaw, Stewart
WR: fitz, nicks, Moore, maclin, young

Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m thinking of going with 2 WR’s, and neither is fitz or nicks.

Reply to  lee colclasure
9 years ago

McF should run well on the Chiefs, and Bush (Reggie?) has a plus matchup. I think you have to go Maclin against the Saints, and it’s tough to bench Moore right now. For the flex, I’d probably roll with J-Stew, especially if D-Will gets traded.

Victor McNeal

PPR league starting 2RB 2WR 1TE and 1RB/WR/TE Flex

I’ve got another week of hard decisions. I am already rolling with J.Charles and Leshoure at RB….. right now I’m rolling with Fitz Maclin at WR and Bowe in my flex but I’m at a toss up with maybe benching Bowe and waiting it out and seeing if I can get Murrary in my flex spot. Going against that soft ATL run D he could do some damage, and if not then just go with Torrey Smith in that flex. This Thursday night battle of fantasy disappointments is killing my lineup plans. Thoughts??? Thanks in advance!

Reply to  Victor McNeal
9 years ago

It’s not looking like Murray is going to play, so that should make your choice easy. Even if he does, it’s likely he won’t get a full complement of carries. I’d roll with Torrey.

spolan
9 years ago

PPR League 2wr, 2rb, 1te and flex (wr/rb/te)

I’ve got Lynch locked into my first rb spot, Leshoure or Rashad Jennings for the #2? Owen Daniels at TE.
My Wrs are Nicks, Decker, Antonio Brown, Britt and Olsen(flex possibility)

Right now I’m looking at sitting Britt and Olsen but I’m unsure which player to sit as well.
All thoughts appreciated, Thanks

Ryan Macnamara

1. PPR, pick one: Jimmy Graham or Miles Austin?
2. PPR, pick one: Torrey Smith or Stevie Johnson?
3. PPR, pick three: Desean Jackson, Gonzo, Britt, or Dez Bryant?

Thanks!

Kris H

M. Ryan vs Cowboys or RG3 vs Panthers (10 yard pass or rush = 1pt, TD = 6pt, Int = -3pt)

Need to start 3 of the 5 WRs in a non-PPR league (10 yards rush or recieve = 1pt, TD = 6pt)
Brown, A at Giants
Fitzgerald, L at Packers
Jackson, D at Saints
Smith, S at Redskins
Britt, K vs Bears
Gut says Fitz, Jackson and Smith based on matchups.

Last question is Bradshaw vs Steelers or Spiller vs Texans. Same scoring as WRs.

Thanks in advance.

Zach Levitt
9 years ago

Brent Celek or Dwayne Allen (with No Fleener)

Roger Bahl
9 years ago

Non-PPR Pick three.

Calvin, Julio, Dez, Britt, Decker, Josh Gordon, D. Moore

Right now I have Calvin, Gordon, and Moore penciled in just because of matchups. I just feel like these guys have the best chance to get TD’s this week. Tell me if I’m wrong. Thanks!

Thane Obijeski
9 years ago

How’s it going Jeff,

Rank these 3 for the week: Ryan, Stafford, Vick.

I need 4 from the following (.5pt ppr). Andre Johnson, Megatron, Denarius Moore, Brandon Marshall, Hakeem Nicks, Kendall Wright. I leaning towards sitting Nicks because of matchups. and Wright.

Thanks,

Vich

Preston Hall

PPR league, start 3 WRs

I have Fitzgerald, Roddy White, Miles Austin, Torrey Smith, and Denarius Moore.

I am leaning towards Fitz, White, and Austin due to long term consistency, but D-Mo has been playing so well recently. With Haden likely on Torrey I was probably keeping him on the bench. I am playing a team pretty equal to me and don’t think I need the homerun pick.

Thanks for the feedback

Joique Bell or Jonathan Dwyer

Matt Kornberg

Im 13-3 and I am averaging 209.0 points per game with a 32 ppg average margin of victory, with a 7 game lead in my division and a 72-16 all play record.

Spiller 16.94 points per game
Wallace 15.39 points per game

Man, I was trying to say how the parity in the NFL is really screwing with fantasy football. No big deal, message board posts have no faces to display body language. I’ll leave the replies alone from now on, I just thought parity could be a good article breaking down ppg from even 5yrs ago.

Sheard, Jabaal CLE DE vs BAL
Smith, Antonio HOU DE vs BUF (matchup pick over Sheard)
Wimbley, Kamerion TEN DE vs CHI (obvious v CHI)

1.5ppr
Josh Cooper Cle
Fred Jackson v Hou
I know it looks funny, but w/Spillar and that Hou D, Cooper 6-55 is 13pts

Matt Giles

Brutal bye week for me…..Ridley & Gore out on bye, Murray and Mendenhall injured.

RB(choose one): Jacquizz Rodgers or Justin Forsett

WR/Flex(choose one): Heyward-Bey, Hartline, Shorts, Tony Gonzalez, Kendall Wright

Standard league: 1pt per 20yds rec/rush, 6pts per TD

Mike Wendland
9 years ago

TE Paulsen (vs CAR) or WR Streater (vs TB) for a PPR Flex spot?
Initially I’d say Paulsen, but Streater has a great matchup against a depleted Bucs secondary…

Chad Merlet

PPR pick 2 of 3. Harvin, Cruz, or Julio

And pick 2 of 4 Doug Martin, Alfred Morris, Pierre Thomas, or Rashad Jennings
