Hey Sig:

Need to start 2 or the 3 RB following RBs and a replacement QB in a PPR league (6 pts for rushing, receiving and passing TDs) where we also get a point for any first downs. Here is my order:

Edmonds, Ekeler, and/or Hyde.   

Tanehill or K. Murray. 

Do you agree?

If Christian Kirk doesn’t play, I need to start one or the following. Full PPR, TE Premium: Devante Parker, Auden Tate, Matt Breida, Royce Freeman, or Jonnu Smith. Thanks!

Roster move:

Have Bailey, Darnold, Schaub

Want J. Tucker, on wire, I'm out of FAAB, sure to be claimed for $1

Best ROS scenario, 4-3 (record, not defense) team, Superflex (2 QB) Have Murray, Mayfield, Foles, Darnold, Schaub at QB

This week: Start Schaub over Darnold and be forced to WW for other kicker  or  cut Schaub, start Darnold, WW for Tucker, drop Bailey Tuesday for position player who is now on waivers 

IOW, is this a rest of the season goodie in terms of tiered kickers, or are the consensus three points lost by starting Darnold enough to impact the game? In the game: I'm a huge underdog in this particular weekly match-up with Schaub 141-153, without Schaub 138-153

Tough one. Or easy for you. TIA, Sig.

Bloom!

Thanks so much in advance...

I’ve got a killer bye decision this week - My only QB is Lamar Jackson, who is on bye.  I have Samuels on IR but he is, surprisingly, not ruled out this week.  I have, roughly, a 40% chance of winning without a QB and I’m currently 4-3 (4th place).  I’m thinking I might just go without a QB, what do you think?

I’d have to drop two of these guys to pick up 1 QB and cover the bye:

 

Alshon Jeffery

Michael Gallup

Hollywood Brown

Sammy Watkins

Marquez valdes-scantling

Darrell Henderson

Jaylen Samuels

 

Who would you drop?  Or would you go with no QB?

Its a 12 Team, point per first down scoring system

Thanks for everything!

Hey @Sigmund Bloom, thanks for doing this. With the weather news, would you play Wentz or Edmonds at flex in a PPR with all TDs at 6 pts? Have Kyler at QB and Wentz at Flex right now. Which 2 of the 3 should start?

Hi Sig,

Who do you trust more in PPR?

John Brown in the bad weather or Chark?

Thanks

Do you risk Josh Allen or John Brown in the elements or drop down to a guy like Carr as a WW replacement. Would probably be Emmanuel Sanders or Dede (again, rain) over Brown.

PPR league. Need a K. Allen emergency plan since he didn't practice Friday. Not a lot to choose from here, but  I need one in the flex:

* D. Henderson vs. CINCI -- great matchup. Henderson could get a ton of garbage time reps and McVay may use this game to lighten Gurley's load. M. Brown out too.

* D. Thomas @JAX -- Darnold throwing to him. Hasn't resulted in much production. JAX secondary not what it used to be.

* P. Williams @PIT -- Not a great matchup but Fitz is throwing to him.

* D. Hamilton @INDY -- Indy tends to give up the underneath stuff, but he also has Flacco throwing him the ball.

* Z. Pascal vs DEN -- Not a great matchup, but he's producing despite the fact he's sharing snaps.

* A. Erickson @LAR -- This guy is kind of out of nowhere, but he's getting targeted a ton the last 2 weeks. Could be again in a catchup game.

* T. Ginn vs AZ -- Peterson could be on M. Thomas. That said, Bridgewater not going deep too much so upside could be low.

* TE Options: J. Smith (vs TB), J. Hill (vs AZ),  C.Brate (@TN) -- All have excellent matchups! And OJ Howard and D. Walker ruled out. Looking like Cook is heading in that direction as well.

Which?

THanks!

PPR league.

Key question is this...do I dare sit Z. Ertz?

Ertz has a bad, bad matchup @BUF who are one of the top teams defending the TE. Plus, he has Goedert eating away at targets not to mention the fact that the Philly offense as a whole has been garbage. Throw in a windy rainy day in Buffalo as well and...ugh.

Options otherwise would be:

* C. Brate @TN -- OJ Howard ruled out. TN D has been forgiving to TEs.

* J. Hill vs AZ -- The best matchup for TEs in fantasy.

* J. Smith vs TB -- D. Walker is out. TB also is terrible at defending the TE.

Stand pat with Ertz? Or role the dice with one of these other options?

Thanks

Is C. Kirk Drop-able - 10 team league - 20 man rosters with a WR-TE and a WR -RB flex along WR,WR 

 

WRs are

Evans

Hilton

Chark

DJ Moore

Ridley

Other prospective drops would be Schaub (Ryan owner in a 2QB league) or Deandre Washington (Jacobs Owner)

Hey Sig,

I have been ruined by injuries and trades this year so looking to make a trade since I only have 2 wins and Carson Wentz next 4 weeks are a bye and 3 brutal matchups. Half PPR and 4 pt pass TDs

Would you trade Wentz, Corey Davis, and DJ Chark for Stafford and TY? The owner is interested because he's undefeated. I'm thinking yes because both past their byes but my depth could be worrisome. We start 2 rb 2 wr 2 flex 1 te 1 qb 1 dst 1 k

If he doesn't end up biting, is Wentz for Stafford straight up still worth it since I need wins right now?

(QB: Wentz RBs: Chubb, Henry, R. Jones, Ty Johnson, T. Cohen, D. Henderson WRs: Tyreek, Chark, C. Davis, AJ Brown, Watkins, Kirk TEs: Hockenson, Howard)

i like wentz for stafford

Sig,

1.) My league starts 1,3,2,1,1,1,2. (deep starters), shallow 5 man bench, full PPR. Should I trade the SF defense owner my MVS? This will be my 2nd defense, I own the Pats. 

Some weeks I start 5 WR, right now I have: Wr=Godwin, Lockett, Stills, AJ Brown, Ridley.. MVS is my 6th. I have N’Keal in my IR spot who I’ll have to activate soon if I keep him 

(Rbs= chubb, Coleman, White, Edmonds/  TE= Waller, Everett) 

Im going to have to drop someone for a streaming defense next week, which I refuse to do, but can:

(A) stream DEF and not play a kicker and just middling streamers out there or (B) only play a kicker and leave DEF empty (who at least cant get negative points). If I can get (C) SF in that trade, maybe I will hold both, which is yucky, and play the matchups since SF schedule isn’t all gravy. 
 

2.) judging by my roster above, knowing I need 9 skill position starters. How do u like trading edmonds, Everett, MVS or another Wr3 for Amari cooper? 
 

3.) primer shows y’all have Ridley higher than Tevin, Mvs, AJ B, I need one. He was boom bust with Matty ice, now I’m really scared with concerned with Schaub. Is tevin the safest play? I’d love to be a part of AJ or the Monday night game. Are they all about the same for u? 

thanks sig! 

get MVS, tevin safest in nonppr, but i like MVS and AJB this week better in PPR

Thanks!

Super flex spot, Bridgewater got torpedoed by Brees return. But Matt Schaub is available on WW to plug in and FBGs seems pretty high on him, much more so than other sites.

It’s a yahoo league with nonstandard scoring

So:  Matt Schaub or Frank Gore?

Hey Sig!

 

In a standard league, I have to start one TE and I have Waller and Kittle. I was planning on starting my 3 RB’s, Edmunds, Murray, and Lindsay, and not flex one of my TE’s. So, do I start both TE’s and sit a RB, or start those three RB’s and only start Kittle or Waller. If yes, on the three RB’s, which TE should I roll out there. 
 

thx for the help!! 

id go waller to the bench

Hey Sig!

1 PPR Redraft Week 8

QB:  Goff (game in London) --or--J. Allen (high floor, low ceiling & rain and high winds expected)?

RB2: P Lindsay (Broncos offense is pathetic)--or--M Gordon (not done much since holdout)--or--C Edmonds (DJ is GTD...again!)?

TE: Kittle or Henry (only 1 TD YTD for Kittle & high wind/gusts expected in SF)

ROS (pick 1): WR5: Corey Davis, Robby Anderson, Tyrell Williams or Dede Westbrook? (My WR's: Hopkins, Lockett, Diggs & Fitz + AJGreen/IR slot)

Thanks, as always!!

Standard scoring w/ 1.0 PPR

  1. RB (Pick 2) Mack, Jones, Lindsay, Snell (leaning Mack/Jones)
  2. (for context rolling with Wilson @ quarterback Hopkins/Evans @ wide receiver and Waller @ tight end)
  3. Flex (Pick 1) Mack, Jones, Lindsay, Snell, Crowder (leaning Lindsay)
  4. DEF (Pick 1) TEN or CAR
  5. ??  Are you bullish on Snell ??
  6. ?? Which DEF do you prefer for the long haul - TEN or CAR ?? or hold both and play week by week match-up?

League # 2 w/ 1.0 PPR

  1. WR (Pick 1) Keenan or JuJu (already started McLauren and not even entertaining Devante Adams)
  2. RB (Pick 2)  Gordon, Mack, Michel, Snell
  3. Flex (Pick 1) Keenan, Juju, Gordon, Mack, Michel, Snell

PPR League. 12 team league with roster size of 18 (10 starters, 8 bench).

Curious if you think both Will Fuller and OJ Howard are cuttable?

I'm racking up injuries with K. Johnson and K. Allen hurt. Fuller is supposed to be out multiple weeks while OJ is out for this week and has been terrible.

I see reinforcements on the waiver wire at WR (D. Hamilton, P. Williams, others) and a few RB lotto picks. I also have Z. Ertz at TE (just traded for him due to OJ's lack of production) and have T. Lockett and C. Davis at WR along with K. Allen.

One thing on OJ: Been hanging on in the hopes he's traded somewhere so I could either a) play him, or b) use him as a trade chip.

Keep Fuller? OJ? Both? Or drop?

Thanks

 

drop oj, hold fuller

Q1: 0.5ppr, pick two from Marvin Jones, Mike Williams, Kenny stills (Assume keenan allen is out)

q2: From this list:  what are your two best RB handcuffs that if injury to starter were to occur would be a RB2 or better

gus edwards, mckissic, penny, hines, wilkins, dion lewis, gio, ty montgomery, armstead, darrel williams, prosise, gallman, bonnafon, justice hill

q3: 0.5ppr, being reported kamara is out, i have gurley but need one more RB from burkhead, henderson, drake... Or a deep cut from waivers if you have an idea. Starting to get worried Drake may not play at all Monday as they try to trade him before Tuesday
