Facing a couple of dilemmas, on top of "#1 seed expectations" and being at the mercy of lady variance in the playoffs:

1. QB - stick with Newton? or pick up Dak Prescott? Others on the WW are like Mariota, Mayfield, etc. I am leaning sticking with Newton as the "favourite"

2. DB - stick with Budda Baker? or pick up an alternative (Whitehead, R. Jones, Tre Boston, D. Randall...). I am leaning toward picking someone up, at least someone healthy.

3. Flex - struggling with him having a potentially good matchup against NYG or Sony Michel v. a good Steelers D. I have no idea. Coin flip?

My Lineup:

QB - Newton [WW - Dak]

RB - Elliott, A. Jones

WR - Nuk, Thielen

TE - Kelce

Flex - Michel [Henry]

LB - Leonard

DL - Donald

DB - Baker [WW Pickup - TBD]

 

Opponent: Rivers/Lindsay/Fournette/Hill/Adams/Engram/D. Martin/T. Smith/Garrett/Bates

Standard league. Slightly big-play weighted IDP scoring.

Standard:

Howard / Samuels / A Rob / Dede / Ivory / D William - need 2

Defense: Falcons vs Ari or Broncos vs Cle - Points and turnovers/sacks count (not yard and special teams)

Thanks as always.

Thanks for the input, all leagues are PPR

_ If McCoy sits, Ivory or DIxon?

- Pick two: Alshon, DIxon, Mike Williams, Cobb or Baldwin

- Pick two: Damien Williams, Dixon, Alshon, Corey Davis Or Boyd

Thanks always appreciated

Playoff matchup where I'm now projected to lose to my opponent.  It's 0.5 PPR, and due to injuries, I have to pick some mediocre WRs who all seem ver close.  Which would you start?  I know i'll pick the wrong one...

2. Dante Pettis

3. Alshon Jeffrey

4. Golden Tate

 

Thanks!

Standard Scoring

Hey Sig!

 

Standard - Wilson or JAllen

Standard; pick 2 - Fournette / Chubb / DCook / Henry / Peterson

Standard; pick 3 - Adams / Cooper / DJMoore / Pettis / Baldwin

Standard - Ebron or JCook

...

I've over-analysed the RB situation and can't clearly decide who to leave on the bench between Fournette, Chubb and Cook;

 

Chubb; road dog by 3 (low implied 21 pts for Cle); Broncos not allowing a rushing TD for the last 7 games (along with 70yds/game or so); high volume even with possible negative game script (touches and targets); 5 straight game with a TD

 

Fournette; home favorite by 7 (low implied of 21 for Jax); Redskins defense running on fumes with offense doing next to nothing; Jags mailing it in even though their defense is/was stellar at home; high volume in all his games; offense not generating much with Kessler; could go berserk and get ejected

 

Cook; home favorite by 6 (implied of 26 for Min); tough rushing defense as of late for Miami but getting walloped on the road all year long; new OC scheme; seeing regular targets (in a skewed passing offense); less volume than the other two (with Murray)

 

... tell me something I havn't thought of (weather in Denver? OLs/DLs? other?) to help me decide !

Thanks!

Two decisions to make, full PPR, and I am a slight underdog, so need upside.

With the T.Y.Hilton news (no practice Friday), I am scrambling for a flex. If I treat him like a GTD, I will only have Dante Pettis vs Seattle, however if I want to be proactive, I have Daesean Hamilton vs CLE, or Eli McGuire vs Houston on Saturday.  Thoughts?

Also, have to decide David Njoku @ Den or Vance McDonald vs NE.  

 

Thanks in advance Sig.

wirh Melvin Gordon probably OUT tonight. I need to choose one for my FLEX:

Damien Williams vs LAC (Only if Ware is out of course)

Robbie Anderson vs HOU

Chris Conley vs LAC

Ty Williams @ KC 

Kyle Rudolph vs MIA (Kelce is my starter, Rudolph is only an option at flex because of the TE premium - I don’t like this though)

First time posting in this thread, thanks for any advice 😎

Hey Sig,

Always appreciate the advice. RB question.

.5 PPR

Would you go Ingram or Damien Williams? And if Williams, what's your confidence level in starting him?

Thanks

.5ppr Bench one: OBJ, Brandin Cooks, David Johnson, Tarik Cohen. 

-LAR or Buffalo DST

-full point ppr:  Drake or Ingram 

-Standard:  Gronk or Samuels

Lots of share of Keenan, Mahomes, and Butker - finding myself down big unfortunately.  So leaning highest upside if that changes anything?  Looking like a rough finish, but thanks for all your work this year.

Deep breath is right! 

1. PPR flex-if Conner and/or Breida play, how would you rank the following:

Conner

Breida 

Henry 

Dixon

Pettis

2. PPR superflex - With OBJ being out, Eli or Lockett?

3. DST - how would you rank the following? Points against count, yards do not.

Denver

Detroit

Atlanta

TIA and good luck! #pineapple

Hey Sig!

1 pt PPR Redraft (with RB/WR/TE bonus for 100 yard game and 50+ long td)

 

WR1/2: Thielen/Hilton-if he plays, if not, then Shepard (OBJ out), Godwin, Humphries or Robby Anderson (pick 1) (Not really liking any of these!)

TE (Pick 1): Gronk or Cook (leaning Gronk-tough to sit him--Also, Cook's away-game stats are lower compared to home games)

As always, thanks for your help!

Given the news about Guice’s 7 weeks of infection issues after his ACL surgery, would you consider him a good 1-year 2019 keeper in a redraft league (no round involved)?  Wondering if there is too much risk of whether he will be ready week 1.  Thanks Sig.

Hi Sig, hope you get to this before tonight's game!

Standard, I need two from the following:

DJ (sucking and now questionable), Conner (will he play??), Chubb, Damien Williams (do I take the risk with the other RB questions?)

at QB - looks like Wentz is out so if so, Mayfield or Winston?

Playing against top ten, need huge upside players.

-4pt TD, bonus points for yards, negative points for sacks, INT, pick6, fumbles & fumbles lost: Allen, Jackson, Winston, Mayfield or Trubisky?

-PPR Flex: Corey Davis, Dixon, Ridley (revenge game?), Cannon, Robby, Stills?

Thanks Sig

Sig, thanks so much for all the help this season. You've nailed the correct call greater than 75% of the time for me, very very impressive!!

Editing a little, started Jackson, opponent started Hill, winning with a current score of 17.5 - 8.1, so keep that in mind for below:

QB, I had Wentz, looking like he is out, who do I start this week, my options are:

Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, Baker Mayfield, Mitch Trubisky (might not be able to get him, so please rank your top 2 out of this bunch), Derek Carr, Marcus Mariotta

1 point for 25 yards passing 2 point bonus at 300 yards, 1 point per 10 yards rushing, 2 point bonus 100 yards rushing, 6 points for any TD

PPR, please pick 2 out of this group:

Sony Michel

Chris Carson

Gus Edwards

Leonard Fournette

Alshon Jeffrey

Marlon Mack

(If James Conner plays, how does that impact your decision? Conner is on my roster)

Defense (my options are on the left):

Denver vs Cleveland

Balt vs TB

NYG vs Tenn

Atl vs AZ

PPR:

Jeffrey or Evans. I obviously lean Evans, but my expectations are very low.

Thanks again Sig!!!

Thanks in advance, I know you have a lot going on and appreciate you doing this in addition  to everything else to help us.

In leagues with points and yards allowed scored,  group these D/ST's into tiers like you do offensive players:

Seattle (at SF)

Buffalo (vs Det)

Den (vs Cle)

Detroit (at Buf)

NYG (vs Ten)

NE (at Pit)

Indy (vs Dal)

Ari (at Atl)

I have a pretty solid lineup, other than my flex/WR3 spot, where I have Anthony Miller (CHI) or Tre'Quan Smith (NOS).  I'm not terribly comfortable with either option, so I'm looking to pick up one of the following.  1.5 PPR, and 1 pt for every 15 yards receiving/returning.   Leaning towards one of the top three, and Nelson/Hamilton seem to have the best matchups.

Robby Anderson NYJ  (HOU)

Jordy Nelson OAK  (@CIN)

DaeSean Hamilton DEN  (CLE)

Chris Conley KCC (@LAC).... I would only consider this if Hill is deemed to be OUT tonight.

One of the BUF WR... Not even sure which would be the best option, between Zay Jones, Robert Foster, or Isaiah McKenzie (we get a point for every 15 return yards, and McKenzie actually outscored the others last week).

A couple of lineup questions for you this week:

.5 PPR and the rest of the settings are standard:

 

Pick One at QB: Rodgers, Watson, Foles

Pick one at Flex: Tyler Boyd or Alshon Jeffery or C. Conley

 

Thanks and good luck this week!
