  1. I opted for Keenum over both Foles and A. Smith
  2. I think he is a very good PPR option this week.
  3. I think I would go Bibbs over Penny, myself, but the Giants have been pitiful, so I could see Penny putting up a good game.
  4. Goodwin has been fantastic, although the matchup worries me some. If Perine is out, easy call, but I would likely go with Goodwin in any event.
  5. The Chargers
  6. What is it about babes you like?
  7. I agree with Crabtree and Evans. Non-PPR, I would go with Ajayi at flex. At PK, I don't trust Ficken. I would go Dawson.
  8. Thanks for the response!
  9. I am facing a similar decision (Keenum, Foles or A. Smith), and I am likely going with Keenum, which is who I would choose in your scenario as well.
  10. Can't bench Jones, and JuJu is a must-start this week with Brown out.
  11. Which QB should I start for the Championship game? Case Keenum (@GB): Keenum has been one of the hottest and most consistent fantasy QBs in the league, and he faces a Green Bay defense which struggled against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers last week. Green Bay has been eliminated from post-season play, but this is a rivalry game, and I don't expect them to roll over. Minnesota has won the Division, but they continue to pursue Philly for home field advantage. When the two teams faced off in Week 6, Keenum had a quiet game (24 of 38 for 239, a TD and a pick), but since the Vikings' Week 9 bye, he has been a top play. Keenum could come out fired up by his Pro Bowl snub, but there is also the potential that the Vikings take command early and then take a more conservative approach to the game or even rest some ailing players, and perhaps even get Bridgewater some more reps. Nick Foles (vs. Oak): Foles made a strong debut for the Eagles last week at the Giants, and this week he plays at home vs. the Raiders. However, I don't think Oakland is quite the cupcake others have been making them out to be. Over the last 4 weeks, in fact, they have been one of the stingiest defenses (if not the stingiest) to opposing fantasy QBs. The Vikings are still pushing the Eagles for the top playoff seed (Min plays Saturday). Assuming Minnesota wins, there is no reason to expect the Eagles to take their foot off the accelerator. The team would like to see Foles continue to develop his timing with his receivers and stay hot as he tries to fill the void left by Carson Wentz. I am a bit concerned that Foles regresses some (perhaps even more than some) this week, but his ceiling is admittedly high. Alex Smith (vs. Mia): Smith has been my starter most of the season. While Smith and the Chiefs have warmed back up some in recent weeks after the team went on a mid-season slide, aside from his big Week #13 game against the Jets, Smith has been merely serviceable as a fantasy starter. The Chiefs still need a win (or a Chargers loss) to win the AFC West, and they need to continue to reclaim their offense, so it seems unlikely we will see Andy Reid rest any key starters. Like Keenum, Smith got overlooked for the Pro Bowl, so he could come out firing. Smith seems a conservative choice here, as he is not prone to turnovers, but his ceiling may not be as high as my other two choices. My opponent is favored in the Championship Game, so I am leaning toward Keenum here. Thanks in advance for your feedback!
  12. Fair word of caution, although I have no reason to believe the Eagles will sit Foles for any substantial portion of the game. They want him firing on all cylinders and getting his timing down with his receivers prior to a playoff run. The good news for Foles owners is that the Vikings play Saturday, so we will know early if the Eagles have clinched.
  13. Foster is a poor-man's Andre Ellington. He is a better receiver than runner, and he could have some PPR value in that capacity, but I would only start him out of desperation at RB.
  14. As a preemptive PPR move, you might grab Lance Dunbar. I'm uncertain how large a role he will play once he returns, but he is reportedly due back soon.
