Thanks in advance for the input, Bloom. 

Scenerio:

12-team, non PPR, 3yr Keeper league (2018 keeper rounds listed after player). Current record: 10-2 (QRRWWTFKD)

My roster:

  • QB: Ryan, Stafford, Watson (18)
  • RB: Zeke, Crowell (4), Kamara (15), Collins (18), Conner (16), Drake (18), David Johnson (1)
  • WR: AB, Baldwin, Diggs, Corey Davis (8), J. Gordon (18)
  • TE: Gronk
  • K: Butker
  • DST: JAX

Question:

With the news of AB possibly not playing on MNF, would you:

  • bench AB & start 1 of  Drake, Crowell, J. Gordon, or Davis
  • or wait till Monday and then drop someone for: LaFell or Eli Rogers if AB is out?
    • if you'd wait, who from my current roster would you drop?

 

Scenerio 2:

12-team, .5 PPR, redraft league.  Current record: 11-1 (QRRWWTFKD)

My roster:

  • QB: Wilson
  • RB: Bell, Zeke, Drake, Woodhead, Duke Johnson, Abdullah
  • WR: Thielen, T. Hill D. Thomas, Crowder
  • TE: Ertz
  • K: Elliot
  • DST: PIT

Question:

Would you drop anyone to handcuff Bell with Conner?

Thanks Sig,

                  A.Brown dilemma,no waivers in either league,FFPC scoring:

                                                  League A: No other Monday Night options,do I roll with Brown or

                                                                  bench him for M.Sanu?

                                                  League B: Can do same as Legue A or bench McCaffrey,Mixon,D.Lewis or J.McKinnon,

                                                                    put Brown in as flex and have J.James if he's a no go.

As an Abdullah owner with a bad RB3 situation would you pick up Mack to handcuff Gore as RB3 or keep Abdullah planning for playoffs?

AB toe injury really has me torn on what to do

0.5ppr

Start Josh Gordon Sunday or wait out A. Brown and possibly have to end up starting M Bryant if Brown is out

In PPR, I'm in 7th place and need not only to win this week but get a top-4 score in the league to have a shot at making the playoffs. Lost DJ and then Zeke in this league and started off 0-5, so it would be incredible to make the playoffs.

Starting lineup: Wilson, Mixon, McKinnon, Tevin, Thielen, M Thomas, D Thomas, Kroft

I need one more flex starter, and given the top-4 requirement upside is a consideration (unfortunately, already didn't start Morris): Quizz, DJ Foster, Ekeler, Inman, C Patterson.

12 team standard league and part of the reason why I have a 1st round bye is because of your podcasts and feedback.

QB:  Brady, Cousins, Rodgers

RB:  Gordon, Burkhead, McKinnon, Ekeler

WR:  Cooks, Adams, Doctson, Goodwin, C. Davis

TE:  Kelce, Henry

Flex:  Kamara

The bolded is my starting lineup looking ahead weeks 15,16.  I'm not sure if I should keep a backup TE in case something happens to Kelce.  Should I drop either Henry or Goodwin (or any other bench player) for any of these available waiver stashes?  Booker, Parker, Dede.  I'm very concerned about my WR3 which is currently Doctson.

cousins for dede

Scoring: 1 pt per 25 yards pass, 4 pt pass TD, 1 pt per 10 yards rush / rec, , 6 pt rush / rec TD, 0.5 PPR, 3 pt bonus after 100, 150 and 200 yards rush / rec.

My team

QB: A Smith / Stafford / Keenum

WR: Tate / Bryant / Agholor / Corey Coleman / Dede Westbrook

RB: Gordon / LMiller / Collins / Ekeler

Carrying only 1 TE / K / DST

My two questions:

1) Who do I start at WR2 (Dez was my WR1)? Leaning towards Westbrook since he's gotten many targets and has a softer match-up.

2) I have a chance to pick up D Booker. ? Ekeler may be a good handcuff but he's still just the backup. Do I drop him?

im fine with westbrook, would say bryant if i knew brown was out

id hold ekeler over book, but drop smith for booker

Hope you can help me with this one.

I'm a league where I've locked a spot for the playoffs in a 0.5 PPR league.

Which player do I drop?

  • David Johnson
  • ASJ
  • Charles Clay

(One of those TE will be my starter the rest of the way)

Bloom, crunch time - lol. TD heavy league, non-ppr, yardage helps. WR #1 is Thielen, can you believe that? Used to be Jordy, who I am holding.

WR #2 has been Tate in the past and rolling with either R Anderson or C Kupp?

Tate - BAL D... not liking

Anderson - hot commodity

or 

Kupp - leaning this guy.

kupp

League 1: weeks 13 and 14Case Keenum or Mariota? (Have Rodgers on the bench if I can get to week 15)

 

League 2: Week 14 QB: Big Ben or Alex Smith... or pick up McCown?

Hi Sig thanks for a great season of help so far,

A few quick ones as we head into playoffs, 12 team .5 ppr keeper league (16 total roster spots):

1. DST:  Stick with Jags DST WK14 (v Seahawks) or would you prefer to stream any of the below for an easier matchup?

Packers (v Browns), Seahawks (@ jags), Texans (v SF), Bills (v Colts) are all available. Thx

2. Worth holding DeVante Parker as a backup WR or would you drop for depth at RB (Blount) or replace with Cobb w/ Rodgers potentially returning, Inman or Tyrell Williams w/ Mike Williams out?

3. QB: Would you trust A Rodgers for weeks 15-16 even in tougher matchups Panthers/Vikings? I'm currently holding 3 QBs so...

...Rodgers, Rivers or Dak? Or should I hold em all and play matchups? I guess I'm asking, is Rodgers an auto-start over both Rivers and Dak rest of the way?

Appreciated.

JAX

rodgers

I'm hedging my bet and benching Antonio Brown for Lamar Miller.  Theo Riddick is still out on waivers and should get the bulk of the load.  Would you make the move to Riddick or stick with L. Miller.  This is a 1pt PPR league.  Bonus for TDs over 40yds and receiving TDs for RBs.

Hi Sig.  MUST WIN week.  I have a couple questions so THANKS in advance and have a great Sunday!!!!

 

1.  Big Ben or Carr (Brown possibly out for Ben and on road? Crab/Cooper out for Carr) 4PTS/TD throwing, 6PTS/TD rushing, 1PT/25 YDS passing, Bonus @ 300 yards

**if not for Brown question, I was going to start Big Ben on the road for sure**

BEN

2.  WDIS @ DEF?  

Chargers @ home vs CLE (not sure if Heyward is playing and that concerns me)

Rams @ AZ

Ravens @ home vs DET 

 

For the following two questions, scoring is as follows: (PPR & 1PT/10 yds receiving & 1PT/10 yds receiving & 6PT/TD & bonus @ 100 yds rushing or receiving)

 

3.  WDIS @ RB (pick 2)

Dion Lewis @ Buffalo        

Alex Collins @ home vs Detroit

Carlos Hyde @ Chicago 

 

NOTE: @ WR, I am starting Michael Thomas and Keenan Allen - No debates here.

 

4.  WDIS @ Flex

a) Mo Sanu 

b) Jordy Nelsion

c) Martavis Bryant

d) OR whichever RB (Lewis, Collins or Hyde) is not recommended as a start.

***I'm leaning Sanu and generally prefer a WR @ flex vs a RB***

 

THANK YOU

Hi Bloom. I'd like your opinion on a tight end for this week.

Ricky Seals-Jones or Jared Cook?

Seals-Jones has been red hot, but I like the match up for Cook vs. the Giants defense.

Thanks

cook, but they are tied in projections, trust your gut

Performance league.  Length of TD matters greatly (from 4pts on under 10 yard TD's up to 12 pts on a 60+ yard TD)

.5 pt per catch and 1pt per catch for TE's

Big Ben or Mariota

at flex D. Freeman or D. Walker

Hey Sig,

I currently have Sammy Watkins (@ Ari) as my WR3 in my lineup and Jermaine Kearse as my flex (RB/WR/TE). I have Dontrelle Inman (vs SF), Corey Clement (@ SEA) and Marlon Mack (@ JAX) currently on the bench as potential other options.

With Watkins likely to be shadowed by Patrick Peterson, should I leave my lineup as is, or get Inman in there, being Chicago's WR1 and having a favorable matchup at home vs SF?

Thanks for your time.

leave as is
