Denarius Moore
Jonathan Stewart
Torrey Smith
Rashad Jennings

James Young

All are good options. Torrey is a good choice IMO here

I’ve been offered RB Mark Ingram and a 2013 third round pick for QB Russell Wilson and my 4th round pick in a Yahoo dynasty league. Ingram hasn’t done much this year. Is this trade worth it?

Denis
QBs: Newton, Locker, Wilson
RB: Ridley, M. Bush, Ronnie Brown, Bryce Brown, Jacquizz Rodgers
WR: Wayne, D. Thomas, Decker, Hilton, Edelman, Streator, Keyshawn Martin, Danario Alexander, TJ Graham
TE: Olson, Kellen Davis, Lance Kendricks

This is a non-PPR league that starts 3 WR, 2 RB, and two TE; no flex.

James Young
Reply to  DenisK

Id think so. I’m strongly a detractor of Ingram but RB’s are always valuable and his value can always go up from here. He’s in the basement as far as his value is concerned now. You could always flip him for something better than this later.

too many skill players on new orleans. who says wilson can’t go off?

Dalton or manning

Eli manning*

James Young
Reply to  Will Finnegan

Eli… he’ll bust out of his slump this week. I’m certain

Mike Wendland

Tannehill vs TEN
or
Wilson vs NYJ

Both seem to be hitting their stride lately, and while Wilson starts to throw more TDs, he also has a tougher matchup.

“neither” is not an option 😉

James Young
Reply to  Mike Wendland
9 years ago

Wilson by a fair amount. I’m not worried about the Jets D going cross country. Wilson is playing well but could lose TD opportunities to his running game this week. still id start him

James Young
Reply to  Mike Wendland
9 years ago

Tannehill does have a great matchup tho… hmm… I cant safely say Wilson with that in mind. I’m flip flopping and picking Tannehill here. He’ll outscore Wilson but it might be close enough not to matter much

Kent McClanahan

PPR league.

I have Harvin but I want to be prepared for the possibility that he is out this week. If he starts, he is in my line up but an injury fill in from these 4:

Hilton @ Jac
Kerley @ Sea
Shorts vs. Indy
Tate vs NYJ

I am leaning Tate but wanted to see what you thought.

James Young
Reply to  Kent McClanahan
9 years ago

Hilton will play his game before Harvin’s fate is decided this week. so hes out. Shorts too. Kerley is the only real option here IMO

Ryan Moen
Reply to  Kent McClanahan

Harvin is out.

ppr league

Dez or I redman?
Big Ben or Cam?
pick 2 Bowe, Maclin, T Young or P Thomas

Thank you!

James Young
Reply to  Jeremy Upah
9 years ago

Dez, Ben and Bowe, Maclin

Maclin worries me however. I dont know which week he’ll break out. it’ll happen but who knows when

Dan Chung

Alex Smith (v. STL) or Philip Rivers (v. TAM)? Thanks.

James Young
Reply to  Dan Chung

Rivers by a LOT

Daniel Peterson

Flex PPR

TY Hilton or Marcel Reece?

Daniel Peterson
Reply to  Daniel Peterson
9 years ago

Or Quizz with a nice matchup.

James Young
Reply to  Daniel Peterson

Reece by a large amount

S Ray
9 years ago

Non-ppr dynasty, start qb, 2 rb, 2 wr, te, idp.

I am considering benching rb j.charles in favor of i.redman or d.thomas. Also benching te k.rudolph in favor of d.allen.

I am frustrated with these players considering the past few weeks (not to mention my starting qb is e.mannning!), but can charles or rudolph be trusted at all? Thanks!

James Young
Reply to  S Ray
9 years ago

I like allen over rudolph but not sure about the other decisions.

PJ Markey
9 years ago

pick 3

Dez Bryant, De.Thomas, Kenny Britt, Jeremy Maclin

Pick 1

Reggie Bush or C.J. Spiller

James Young
Reply to  PJ Markey
9 years ago

Thomas Britt and Bryant, fairly strongly

Spiller by a lot

Rob Vance
9 years ago

Pick 2 of these 4 LB:
Willis, Laurinaitis, Aldon smith, Woodyard
I like Willis and Laurinaitis personally, but Woodyard has been a surprise this year!

robert barger
9 years ago

Pick 2 of these 4 for flex non ppr

Jstew vs Den
Leshoure @ Min
Bowe @ Pitt
Maclin vs Dal

clayton westphal
9 years ago

Scoring only yardage means nothing

QB Eli Manning vs Cinncinati
Cutler vs Houston

1RB 2WR 1Flex

RB Ridley vs Buffalo
Jamaal Charles vs Pittsburg
Vereen vs Buffalo
F Jones vs Philadelphia
WR Vjax vs Chargers
Wayne vs Jax
Wright vs Miami
Broyles vs Vikings

Eli has only 6 points in the last 4 games but has the better match-up than Cutler, Eli’s zero
cost me a game two weeks ago but I got by with a 2 point squeeker last week breaking a 4 game losing streak

RB Ridley WR Wayne and VJAX

Flex, I would normally go Charles with a Monday Night last hope player and originally my best RB
but I dont know if KC can move the ball against Pittsburg at all. New England had a great runing day
the first time they played Buffalo, I dont know how the Patriot RB Boldin is going to play in this weeks game but I am leaning on using Ridley and Shane Vereen who was not 100% when they played Buffalo the first time

Brian Mearns
9 years ago

Torrey Smith (vs Oak) or
Hakeem Nicks (vs Cincy)
Non PPR

and

M Forte (vs Houston) gulp! or
Reggie Bush (vs Tenn)

Thanks!!

James Young
Reply to  Brian Mearns
9 years ago

Nicks and Forte. I wouldnt worry about their “slumps” or the matchups too much.

I love reggie but hes been splitting time at RB, so you’ll have to wait until Thomas gets injured again to really get production. (although I like his match up this week.)

I dont think its ever wise to bench Nicks. Hes been down lately but either this on next week he will be big

Chad Benner
9 years ago

SJackson, ABrown, KHunter, or DRichardson? Pick One

My league’s scoring system:
1 pt per 10 yards rushing or receiving
plus distance scoring on TDs as follows:
0-9 yds – 6 pts
10-24 yds – 8 pts
25-49 yds – 10 pts
50+ yds – 12 pts

Micah Kropp
9 years ago

Marcel Reece, Joique Bell, or Brian Hartline in a PPR league?

James Young
Reply to  Micah Kropp
9 years ago

Reece by a lot IMO

Micah Kropp
Reply to  Jeff Haverlack
9 years ago

Thanks for the feedback. As a Raider fan I was leaning toward Reece initially. However Jones is now getting the first team reps in practice.

I think I’ll go with Hartline against the terrible TEN defense

Danton Goulet
9 years ago

So here are my players at positions I have to decide on.
Start 1 QB Rivers (@TB) Vick (DAL) or Dalton (NYG)
Start 2 RB McGahee (@CAR) Mathews (@TB) Greene (@SEA) Dwyer (KC)
Start 3 WR DThomas (obvious pick) Bowe (@PIT) Britt (@MIA) Hartline (TEN) Boldin (OAK)
Most of these decisions were obvious to me early in the season but after alot of under performing by some of my bigger names, not so much now.
Thanks as always guys!

Danton Goulet
Reply to  Danton Goulet
9 years ago

Oh sorry, and non PPR standard scoring

James Young
Reply to  Danton Goulet
9 years ago

I like McGahee and Mathews at RB
and Thomas Britt and Bowe at WR
QB is really too tough to call. I have no idea. Possibly Vick

trey sands
9 years ago

non ppr

need to pick one of the following for my flex:

V. Ballard
J. Stewart
R. Mendenhall
R. Broyles

James Young
Reply to  trey sands
9 years ago

Stewart or Ballard, I’d go Stewart barely

trey sands
Reply to  James Young

thanks have made some trades since this am and now have the option maclin in flex over other options? i am thinking maclin or ballard until stewart does it im not sold on 10 carries and a chance….

Robert Schramm
9 years ago

I have a couple of tough decisions to make.

Cutler or Shaub in their matchup against each other?

At Flex, A. Bradshaw or TBMW or Andre Johnson? Need to start two of three.

Thanks,

Luck54
9 years ago

Andy Dalton or Phillip Rivers
Celek or Pettigrew
Reece or DHB
This is a ppr league.

Buster Skrine or Jarius Byrd
David Harris or Burfict(Had a slow week last week, you think that was because he was coming off the bye)
1.5 for tackle, 1.0 assist, 4.0 sack

N B
9 years ago

PPR Flex – Pick 2

Harvin v. Det
Maclin v. Dal
Tampa Mike v. SD
Hilton @ Jac
Shonn Greene @ Sea

Thanks!!

James Young
Reply to  N B
9 years ago

Tampa Mike
Harvin – Maclin if Harvin is out

Sir Newtlesworth
9 years ago

Non PPR, I have Roddy, Percy, Moore, Broyles, and TY Hilton to fill 3 spots. Do I stick Hilton in banking that Percy will sit? They have a week 11 bye so it’d be a 2 for 1. Or do I wait to see if Percy plays and stick Broyles in otherwise?

James Young
Reply to  Sir Newtlesworth
9 years ago

I like your second option better. and Hilton could outscore Broyles, sure (if Harvin’s out) but theres just too much upside to pass on Percy w/o knowing if hes gonna play by tomorrow’s JAX/COLTS game.

Rodney Dawson

Which wr do you like this week? no ppr. Thanks, Jeff.

DHB @ Bal
Blackmon v Ind
Crabtree v Stl

James Young
Reply to  Rodney Dawson
9 years ago

Crabtree by a slim margin

Rodney Dawson
Reply to  Rodney Dawson
9 years ago

I now have Dez @ Phi as an option.

James Young
Reply to  Rodney Dawson
9 years ago

prolly should go dez then. whenever he complains (or the DAL media complains actually) about him not seeing enough targets, the next week he usually ends up getting a lot of looks. could have a bounce back week.

James Young
9 years ago

Please pick 2 for my FLEX positions in a deeeeeeeeep 1pt per catch PPR league.

A.Hawkins CIN WR – vs. NYG
D.Thomas MIA RB – vs. TEN
K.Ogletree DAL WR – vs. PHIL
L.Robinson JAX WR – vs. INDY
J.Cotchery PIT WR – vs. KC

Any and all help is very appreciated!! I cant seem to ever get this lineup right :/

Jeremy Upah
Reply to  James Young
9 years ago

i’d say robinson & ogletree. That’s a tough one tho

Zach Levitt
9 years ago

Maclin or Britt (non-ppr)
Pettigrew or Dwayne Allen (non-ppr)

James Young
Reply to  Zach Levitt
9 years ago

Britt and Allen slightly.

Maclin will have a big week eventually but I have no idea when. Britt has been on the cusp of a few big games at least… thats something to take a chance on here.

Allen I like as a weak TE1 for as long as Fleener is out. He get regular and redzone looks. Pretty solid choice. Pettigrew is weak in non-ppr, but I have a feeling he’ll get a TD this week. Still like Allen more, however it may be close b/t the two

Michael Stumpf
9 years ago

Can go 1-4 or 2-3
.5 ppr, .1/yd rec
(-.4) rush attempt, .2/yd rushing

Currently rolling with this lineup
Rice
Calvin
AJ Green
D. Moore
Lloyd

Mathews and Nicks (Broyles, Vereen, Felix, Baldwin too) on the bench. Do I swap them in for anyone?

Robert Hoffman
9 years ago

Dez or Stevie Johnson? PPR

Kris H
9 years ago

Need to start 2 of the 4 RBs in a non-PPR league (10 yards rush or receive = 1pt, TD = 6pt)

Lynch, M vs Jets
Spiller, C at Patriots
Bradshaw, A at Bengals
Thomas, P vs Falcons

I have Mendenhall on IR and Redman is also available so he could be an option as well.

Thanks in advance.

Robert Schramm

Hey, did I do something wrong? Why did you skip me above?

I have a couple of tough decisions to make.

Cutler or Shaub in their matchup against each other?

At Flex, A. Bradshaw or TBMW or Andre Johnson? Need to start two of three.
