Week 1 Questions for Bloom

Recommended Posts

Hey Sig ! 

Standard - Maclin or Jennings in flex ? I had Maclin in but am leaning Jennings because Maclin has Verrett who schooled him twice last year and I like Jennings match up and 3 down/goal line work he's meant to be getting. 

 

Also got Bennett in at TE which makes me uneasy for week 1. Can pick up McDonald, Ebron, Cook or James off wire, what you think ?

How many games does it take to properly evaluate a guy you took late in your draft?  The WW heats up as soon as Week 1 is done.

FOOTBALL IS OFFICIALLY BACK!

Thanks in advance for doing this too Bloom. 

got a couple week 1 questions for you:

  1. non-PPR league need 1 player for my RB2 spot:
    1. Rawls (conflicting reports on if he's still hurt, getting eased back, etc..)
    2. Duke Johnson
    3. Isaiah Crowell
  2. Should I drop New England's DST for Philly, GB, or Indy?

For the RB2, i'm leaning toward Duke, but i also have this feeling that the the game script might end up as more of a "Crowell kind of game"...

Would you drop any of these guys for Rob Kelley in a ppr league? do you think he is worth getting before I have to use a waiver on him? 

Options to drop

Torrey Smith 

Shane Vereen 

Virgil Green - I have Ertz as starter 

Kirk Cousins - I have palmer as starter 

Rishad Mathews 

Christine Michael 

Tevin Coleman

Also I currently have stefon diggs in the flex, do you trust of of these guys over him this week? Do you think bradford helps or hurts diggs this season?

Hey Sig,

Great to be back.  Ten team standard.

Tyrod or Bortles?

Need two from following four: Rashard Jenning, DeAngelo Williams, Forsett, and Woodhead?

Finally, over the length of the season, who do you like more, Corey Coleman or Will Fuller?

Thanks! Jason

Pick 1 - QB: Manning, Fitzpatrick, Winston.  (going w/Manning)

FPC question. Here's my roster:

QB: Brady, Carr

RB: Zeke, Bell, DWill, Gio, Perkins, Dwayne Washington

WR: Moncrief, Lockett, M. Thomas, Dorsett, Treadwell, Boldin, Pryor

TE:Walker, Bennett, Hooper

I'm planning to start Zeke and DWill at RB, Moncrief at one of the WR slots, Walker at TE and Gio in one of the Flex spots.  What's the call for my other WR and my other Flex?  I'd like to go Lockett, but Seattle's O-Line is really, really awful.  Thomas at WR and Bennett at Flex?  Do I put in Pryor at Flex and hope he catches a bomb or two from RG3?

Sig,

Thanks as always for doing this.

First questions I have deal with Jordy in a PPR league. Are you trusting him this week with no preseason work? I can start Bernard over him in one league and in another league I can start Snead, Gore or Melvin Gordon over him. Who would you roll with a) Gio or Jordy and b) Snead, Gore, M. Gordon or Jordy?

The other question is for a TD-only league, would you roll with Jameis at Atlanta or Matt Ryan at home v TB?

Thanks once again, let the roller coaster ride begin!

depends on the ceiling of the player and situation and questions you have. on the other side, WW pickups can be so compelling to make you impatient with picks. really a case by case basis. most patient where ceiling is highest

Finally, week 1 is here!

PPR, roster below, start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 2 RB/WR Flex.  Bolded Players are what I plan on starting:

QB:  Brees, Tannehill

RB: Zeke, Hyde, Jennings, Powell, Forsett

WR: Alshon, Landry, Lockett, Michael Thomas

TE:  Bennett, Virgil

Would you do anything differently?

Also, probably a dumb question but Diggs is on the WW, drop Forsett to get him?

Thanks Sig!

Start?

fleener or corey coleman in standard

 

Lockett or  Corey Coleman in PPR

 

Helping the wifey manage her work league (guppies) Jeremy Hill got dropped?!, but already loaded at rb (L miller, Mccoy, S Ware, D Henry, Cmike) Think its worth dropping cmike for Hill?  I feel like this is a dumb question

Thanks Sig

I'm having the same trouble with CJ Anderson 

Need to pick two of Shady, CJA, Ware for my two RB slots.  0.5 PPR.  Leaning Shady/Ware.

Curious what Bloom thinks.

.5 PPR, 1 for 20 yards receiving, -4 for fumbles. Melvin Gordon or Charles Sims at the Flex?

 

Also, which Monday night D/ST do you like best? Only Rams are owned and I'm looking to keep Eli Rodgers on the roster if I'm already winning after Sunday.

 

Thanks!

Hey Sig,

10 tm league, 6 pt Passing Td.

I own Matthew Stafford and plan to start him Week 1.

P. Rivers and Eli Manning are available on waivers/FA.
Would you drop M. Stafford in order to pick up Eli Manning or Philip Rivers because they are better season long options?

Another option would be to drop Tevin Coleman OR Philip Dorsett and roster 2 QB's for Week 1. I would prefer not to do this.

Thanks in advance for your advice.
