Good evening, Mr. Bloom,

Current QB's are Winston and L Jackson.  Haven't clinched a playoff berth (wks 15 & 16) yet, but am just about there.  Best QB's on the WW are Stafford, Mariota, and the like.  Anything worth picking up?  Or sit tight?  Basically, is there any under the radar QB, you like for weeks 15 and 16?

 

A Collins owner.  Just saw the Gus bus didn't practice today, and Dixon may be activated.  Who's next man up, Dixon or Ty Mont?

 

And finally, for some reason, I find J Driskel intriguing.  He's looked somewhat decent when he's played (albeit in garbage time).  However, being the Bengals D is hot rubbish,  there should be a lot of it.  Is there anything to see there?  Or, have I had one too many Four Lokos?

 

As always, appreciate your help.

 

 

sit tight

tymont this week, but maybe dixon later

driskel has some value, especially with aj green back, although the OL is hurting and DEN D will be comin for him. still just a low QB2/superflex option

Hello Sig, all below are standard scoring:

Wentz, Mayfield or Winston? Lean Winston

Starting Hill and Thomas, need two from DJ, Conner and Chubb. Love Chubb's volume, hate the matchup. Sick of Arizona being down 4 scores mid-game which tends to blunt DJ and Conner...what are Pitt doing for 3 straight games, throwing virtually every down!? Does that correct this week?

at TE - Brate or Kittle?

DEF - Chiefs at Oakland or Broncos at Bengals (minus seemingly most weapons) (coinflip)

Thanks mate

Thanks, as always, for doing this & special thanks for the early start too.

12-team , .5 PPR, 4pts passing TD, 3yr  Keeper league (keeper rules below)

Keeper rules:

  • Can only Keep players after round 5
  • Yr 1 keeper = round prior to draft round (FA = last round {17})
  • Yr 2 keeper = 1/2 previous year (ex. yr 1 = 12th rd, yr 2 = 6th) In case of odd round (ex 11th) goes back a round, 6th. 
  • Yr 3 keeper - 1st round 
  • can trade keepers for draft picks

My roster (currently in 1st at 10-2) - players in red = can't be kept

  • QB: Watson (9th - yr2), L. Jackson (17th - yr1)
  • RB: Gurley, Kamara (6th - yr 2), Chubb (8th - yr 1), Lindsay (17th - yr 1), M. Brown (17th - yr 1), S. Ware (17th - yr 1)
  • WR: AJ Green, TY Hilton, J. Gordon, A. Cooper, Humphries (17th - yr 1)
  • TE: Kelce, Brate (11th - yr1)
  • K: Zuerlein
  • DST: MIN

Question:

Would you drop either Brate or Humphries (or anyone else) for the below potential keepers or better to just "hold" for now (looking to make the move before the teams officially out of playoffs can make them):

  • J. McKinnon (kept for 8th rd - yr 2)
  • R. Penny (kept for 6th rd - yr 1)
  • Michael Gallup (kept for 9th rd - yr 1)

Brate for Penny

Rent A Defense Question. Looking ahead to week 14, the first round of the playoffs.

My Chicago D faces the LAR. No way I'm playing CHI D against that offense. Unfortunately, there are slim pickings left but I'd like to grab the best option here now before things lock up Sunday at 1. Options:

* NO @TB -- TB smoked them with Fitzy earlier in the year. NO D has improved since then, but this game is outside/away from the dome and Winston seems less turnover prone.

* SEA vs MN -- Don't love this. Lot of weapons, but Cousins tends to have brain farts.

* NYJ @BUF -- Not sure I can trust the Jets and J. Allen seems to get it done by hook or crook.

* INDY @HOU -- Indy D can be disruptive, but can see Watson putting points on the board at home.

* DAL vs PHI -- PHI offense out of sync. Maybe a tough, low scoring defensive battle? Dallas not a big turnover machine though.

* CAR @CLE -- CAR not really a great D at all. Mayfield/Chubb on a bit of a roll, but could turn it over.

Who would you grab now?

Thanks

12 team standard league.

You have D. Henry high in your rankings this week (#16).  I thought D. Lewis took over the lead back role in Tenn?  Can you please provide an explanation on this?  He is on my waivers.

expectation that TEN will control game and feed henry against a tired Jets D in second half

4 different leagues.

- .5 pt. PPR league, have to start 2. Yeldon, Boyd, Gus the Bus, Corey Davis or Alshon?

- Lamar Jackson or Big Ben?

- 1pt PPR league, pick 2. Baldwin, Alshon, Smokey Brown or Doctson? I know Brown and Doctson are rolls of the dice but might be worth it this week.

- Thanks for your help. Started following you this year. Love the content

Hi Sig, I thought trading for Brady would resolve my QB-carousel, but not seeming to be the case, especially this week. Who do I roll out in a week where I am being cost points with Fournette being suspended, and need to pick them up elsewhere:

Brady at home vs Vikes
Lamar Jax in ATL vs Falcons
 

Also, as my RB2, Tevin Coleman vs BAL or Yeldon vs INDY in non-PPR. I’m down 19 pts already as my opponent has Zeke Elliot.

Sig,

Of dalvin cook, marlon mack & Michel, would u bench any for Courtland Sutton upside. They all scare me especially Mack and Michel. I’m chasing a 65 point difference to get into 7th place and avoid 8 vs 1 who is a monster. 

You seem to be worried that burkhead would take touches from Michel. I think mike Reiss thinks he’ll only come in on every third series but u think this a big downgrade for Michel? 

Also,

I picked up justin Jackson. Matt Waldman says he could make noise. I hold onto every nugget he gives out since u don’t just speak with the OZ. That being said, I need to pick up a kicker... drop Jackson or Rex? I own Michel. 

Thank you! Can’t believe how long some of these messages are, your really a man of the people.

1st, thanks for answering my initial question. 2nd, I forgot to put my other question(s):

League 1(.5PPR, passing TD = 4pts):

My roster (currently in 1st at 10-2) - Start: QRRWWTFKD

  • QB: Watson , L. Jackson
  • RB: Gurley, Kamara, Chubb , Lindsay, M. Brown, S. Ware 
  • WR: AJ Green, TY Hilton, J. Gordon, A. Cooper, Humphries 
  • TE: Kelce, Brate
  • K: Zuerlein
  • DST: MIN

Question 1: do you start Chub @ HOU or Lindsay @ CIN at my flex **Edit - would Ware be worth starting over both Chubb or Lindsay?

Question 2: defense question - Would you stick with MIN D @ NE or add one of: TEN vs. NYJ or MIA vs. BUF? (I "should" keep the #1 seed (bye + money), but there's still a chance if I lose I could drop to 2 {bye - no money})

Question 2.1: Looking forward to week 15 (will at least get a 1st round bye) do you like MIN D vs MIA or BAL vs. TB

 

League 2 (.5 PPR all TD's = 6pts):

Fighting for a playoff spot and need a win this week. Currently have Rivers starting at QB, but both Cousins & L. Jackson are available on the WW. 

Question: Would you add either Cousins  @ NE or Jackson @ ATL and start over Rivers (Each transaction costs me $5)? 

Question 2: with the news on Hunt, would you start Ware over Carson??

 

thanks again (again)

GOOD LUCK THIS WEEK!

PPR- you semi-gushed about Josh Adams for this week in the preview pod but you have him ranked RB31? Due to Sproles possible return? Game script? Lack of targets? Need to start 1 of Adams and Cook.

Doing a repost of this with new information that both Funchess and C. Samuel praticed.

Still sit A. Jeffery and roll with both J. Gordon and DJ Moore?

Feel like DJ is a tad more dicey now.

Been reading your RentaD articles weekly.  In a league that penalizes yards & pts allowed & rewards sacks & TO's, & playoffs are 14-17, thinking about NE for 14 & 17, Det or Den for 15 & 16.  Thoughts?

I have Brate, Tate, Justin Jackson. I can also pick up Conley or Dotson 

0.5 ppr, 1 point per 10 yards, 2 point bonus for 100, 150 and 200 yards (don't have to worry about these bonus points I think) 

Thanks as always Bloom!

Hi Sig,

Pick two this week in standard league:

Mixon (Den)

Ekeler (@Pit)

Ware (@Oak)

Carson (SF)

Backup WRs are John Brown and Josh Reynolds (start Tyreek and M. Thomas). Should I pick up Conley and drop Brown? Like Balt schedule, hate the QB situation.

Have Bears and Houston DSTs. Week 14 looks bad (Rams and Colts respectively). I can pick up Tennessee preemptively (Jax), but who should I drop:

Herndon (have Brate)

Brown

Thanks a bunch!

Since I was able to pick up Ware today, need to ask, with the Hunt situation, where do you roughly slot Ware this week? High enough to start over Conner or Chubb in standard?
