  1. I would take Drake here as well.
  2. 0.5 PPR, 12 team league. 3 WR, 2 RB, 1 Flex. I'm thin on WR with Thomas/Samuel injured so I'll play 3 of the below in the RB/Flex. Austin Ekeler vs. CAR David Johnson @ Pit David Montgomery @ ATL Jerick McKinnon @ NYG Dion Lewis vs. SF
  3. I think short term Henderson is a strong bet, but as Akers gets healthy again he'll cede carries. Kelly was getting goal line touches for LAC so I probably go with him.
  4. I would drop him. Williams has more upside this year I think. Chargers have been clear they are going to try and push the ball downfield. Also HOU has a number of similar level guys competing for touches (Fuller, Cobb, Cooks, Stills, Johnson) and Watson seemed to be using Fuller as his focus.
  5. I think I'd drop Mattison out of these options.
  6. 12 Teams, 0.5 PPR. We play 3 WR. I've got Odell and Diggs Penciled into 2 of the slots, and luckily have Quality RBs to cover flex, but with Michael Thomas and Deebo Samuel out I need to start one of these options at the WR3 slot: Golden Tate @ Chicago Tre'quan Smith vs. Las Vegas Laviska Shenalut @ Tennessee N'Keal Harry @ Seattle My gut wants to go with Shenault, as I liked how the Jags actively tried to get him touches, but wanted to get others opinions on this list.
  7. I think Westbrook is set up well this week. Joyner is a liability defending the slot and Chark is probably out so targets have to go somewhere. I probably go Theilen and Conner otherwise (though both coming off an injury is understandably a risk, it's playoff time so I tend to shoot for ceiling)
  8. I'm for Gurley here too. His usage has been going through the roof ever since McVey said he would "stop being stupid" about holding him back.
  9. I'd go with Mixon as well. Just don't trust Conner to stay healthy right now.
  10. Cook/Henry have to play, agreed. I would actually lean Gordon over Jacobs. Raiders signed Rod Smith a day or two ago when they put Moreau on IR. If they wanted some extra RB depth, it makes me think Jacobs is likely to still be a bit limited this week. Plus Raiders don't really have a reason to push him now that they are basically out of the playoff hunt.
  11. I think CMC and Jones are must-starts, as Fungi said above. From there, I think I probably prefer Carson now that Penny is out for the year. I'd lean Chubb over Mostert personally, but I just don't trust the SF backfield at all week-to-week.
  12. I probably prefer Mayfield or Brissett here. Falcons feel like they could get shutout against the Niners. Mayfield has a good matchup so probably the best bet. I included Brissett as my #2 choice only because New Orleanes lost Davenport and Rankins to injury this week, so might be strapped for getting pressure vs. a good Colts OL.
  13. Hi all, I'm now onto the 2nd round of playoffs. I'm facing the #1 (and actually all-time record setting for total points) team in my league this year. However, the matchup is winnable as he saw Chark and Evans go down to injury. It's 0.5 PPR and I need to fill 3WR slots and a flex out of the below (my RBs are set with McCaffrey and Gurley). Kenny Golladay vs. TB Dede Westbrook vs. OAK Deebo Samuel vs. ATL Darius Slayton vs. MIA Adam Theilen vs. LAC Patrick Laird vs. NYG Probably leaning with the first 4 listed at the moment, based partially on matchups, but Laird might be a valuable, consistent 10-11 points and Thelein is tough to bench even coming off the injury. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated and of course am happy to answer your questions if you drop them below.
  14. I'm actually going up against Lamar this week - but I wouldn't bench him. There's a chance maybe they'll lighten his rushing load, particularly if they get a lead as the game goes on, but I think his floor is high enough that he's still a really good play regardless (unless something changes in the next day or two)
  15. I'd definitely go with mattison if Cook ends up being out, and that would be a clear frontrunner for me. If Cook plays I would probably take Penny.
