Not fantasy related simply football related - who do you like in the Seahawks @ Eagles game?  Any reason you think the Eagles are favorited to win this one?

 

Enjoy your work.

probably bc seahawks traveling east? i agree with your confusion, eagles passing game isn't set up to exploit SEA D weaknesses, Wilson can exploit PHI secondary

PPR league. Need one for my 2nd flex.

Note: I'm a slight underdog after Z. Pascal delivered a goose egg. 

* R. Anderson vs. OAK -- Boom or bust. He's not getting looked at by Darnold much, but he's going to get deep one of these weeks.

* R. Gage vs TB -- TB tough on the run and lousy against the pass. Ryan will have to throw. High over/under. Julio a little banged up and Hill not showing much. Gage could get targets.

* T. Patrick @BUF -- He's questionable with a shoulder injury. Not a great matchup, but T. White could be on Sutton which could open things up for Patrick. Don't expect fantasy fireworks in this game.

* A. Lazard @SF -- Tough matchup, but he looks to be Rodgers #2.

* J. Gordon @PHI -- May be more involved this week. Note: I'm already starting T. Lockett as well.

* R. Mostert vs GB -- Good matchup, but only got a few touches with Breida out last week. I'm also starting T. Coleman.

* B. Snell @CINC -- Wonder if Snell is a sneaky play. Samuels impressive catching the ball, but not so much running.

* J. Ajayi vs SEA -- It's been reported that Ajayi will play a notable role. Not sure what that means.

My matchup projections call for a close game. Don't see a lot of ceiling for my opponent so I think I'm looking for more of a floor play here. If I can get 9-10 PPR points out of this slot with a low probability of a goose egg (like Pascal) I could be in good shape.

Which?

Thanks

Back of bench stash in PPR- Lazard, Laird, Dionte, Gus, AJ Brown, Penny (Carson owner), Ryquell, Harry. Slight need in WR, but roster is pretty solid. 

Thanks for all you do and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hello Sir Bloom,

Tyfreak’s freak zero sank my battleship last week, so I am in rebuild mode for next year in this keeper/dynasty auction league with 3 year contracts per player.   We can sign free agents one last time in next week’s FAAB bidding round.  Of the guys listed below (plus any super deep stashes you might suggest) who do you like??  Roster size is 20 players and I can probably add 3 or 4 speculative adds.  Thanks!

Jordan Thomas, Ian Thomas, Ajayi, Gus Edwards, Justice Hill, Minshew, Laird, Ballage, Gaskins, Gesicki, Powell (if Bell leaves?), Peyton Barber, Bourne, Haskins, Jonnu, Irv Smith, Tannehill, Jakobi Meyers, Pettis, Chase Edmonds, Cobb, Keesean J. , Ito Smith or Qadree, Alex Erickson, Daesean Ham, Lamar Miller, Zach Pascal, Mo Alie Cox, Kumerow, Keelan Cole, Malcolm Brown, Dorsett

 

Would you drop any of the following from my bench for any of the above:

Damien Harris, Slayton, Hollister, Wilkins, Brian Hill, Boykin, Lazard, Everett, Josh Reynolds?

 

Thanks again for doing what you do.   Please run for your President.

RB's - White, Snell

WR's - Cooper, Boyd, Cooks, Gabriel, Miller

TE's - Everett, Brate, Gesicki (wont talk you out of gesicki, but passes to TE have been there against newlook ATL D)

Leaning White, Snell, Cooper, Gesicki (just bc of opportunity).

Thanks, Sig!!! Good luck to everyone this week!

Hey Bloom! I hope you and the guys are getting back to full strength and get to enjoy a much needed respite this week. In a standard league:

1)  I need to flex one of the following: Hunt, Montgomery, or Gallup

2) If Kittle plays, do I start him over Waller? 

thx! 

yes but bc we cant be sure until after waller's game starts, go w waller

Why did Lamar Jackson have a stat correction in Wk 11?  A sack was changed to a rush for -7 yards and I ended up losing by .4 points.  Sucks to be me.

wentz has no good healthy WR and lane johnson is out. NE D was exposed by the one top QB they faced so far this year

2 questions please:

1) Need an RB2 in PPR for this week and possibly moving forward... Laird, Ajayi, Snell, Gus

snell this week, hopefully laird pushes this to RBBC and you use him rest of way


2) In a different league, would you trade away Smokey, ARob and Bo to get Julio and Devonta Freeman in PPR? I’m in the playoffs so trying to strategize for week 14-16. ARob and Bo have horrible playoff schedules and Devonta should be back by then.

  A) YES

  B) NO

 

Thanks Sig!

DST's question:

Would you hold SF (lg 1) and Bal (lg 2) and stream another DST each week based on your Streaming D article? Or, try to get another top DST, like Pit, Bal, SF, and ride the pair wks 14-17? Both leagues score Yds & PTS allowed as well as sacks, TO's, & TD's.

 

 

I would defintely roster two of PIT BAL SF if i can in leagues with yds/pts allowed. id be willing to play BAL here on out, SF maybe only 15/16

ppr - 8 team league 

** I am first place 10-1 and already sealed first seed, first round bye. 

My QB Mahomes is on bye. 

Only position I can drop to add another QB is RB or D. We start 3 RB and 1 D. My backs are Henry,4nett, Jacobs, MG111, Drake, Miles Sanders. My D is NE and Pitt.

Do you see a RB or D to drop to add QB? Is it worth it at this point or get ready for playoff run? I could drop Pitt D, thought using NE in week 15&16 or Drake/Sanders??

If u see RB or D to drop then which QB to add ?

Pick 1: Winston at atl, Mayfield vs mia , Darnold vs oak or Carr at nyj

id drop pit D so you have a decent backup in case mahomes goes down again, pick up winston

Hey Sigmund. 

 

This is a must-win for me to make playoffs. Here's my lineup and my dilemma (I've bolded my problem positions):

 

WR1: Chris Godwin

WR2: Amari Cooper

RB1: Aaron Jones

RB2: Mark Ingram

Flex: Todd Gurley, John Brown, Miles Sanders

 

WR2: I'm very tempted to play Brown over Cooper. Gilmore's allowed basically nothing in coverage this year, though I assume they could move Cooper around to avoid him. And he hasn't shadowed anyone of Cooper's route-running caliber yet. On the flip-side, after not using Harris as a shadow last week, I'd expect Harris to shadow John Brown this week. If he doesn't, I think Brown is an easy play over Cooper.

RB2/Flex: Feel fairly comfortable with Ingram here and Gurley in flex. But if Howard doesn't suit up, I think Sanders could be a great play... and not sure who I'd bench in that scenario.

 

Thoughts on combos of the above? Thanks in advan

 

play brown at wr2. DEN had some communication breakdowns in secondary last week. im fine with sanders over cooper at flex if howard is out

Thanks, Sigmund! Appreciate the help. So you’d rank my flex options as Cooper, Sanders, Gurley if Howard is out? Or Gurley above both of those?

Sig,

I do follow your weekly rankings as a guide, as a gauge. First ask of the year.

Seems we're both extremely close here. I keep going back n' forth.

At Flex:

Tyrell the Gazelle @ NYJ. 

Or

DK the Beast @ PHI

or other option is...

L. Murray at home against CAR. Already am starting Alvin.

I know you'll say won't talk you out of either starts. Add the wrinkle that I am already starting Lockett at WR #2. Had Tyrell in at first. DK in now.

OAK heavy favorite may close out the game rushing the ball vs. SEA an underdog on the road and it's Wilson. Seems like a good chance either Lockett or Metcalf scores, perhaps both. I think Murray has a good game today as well.

Morning Bloom,

Need a 2nd RB today for PPR scoring. 

Choices are either Peterson or T. Edmunds. 

Guice eating into AD's touches has me worried and feel he's TD dependent. 

Is Edmunds the better play?

Last second debate on WRs 2 & 3:

J Brown v DEN

D Johnson at CIN

M Jones at WAS

ETA as this just came across the email:

purchase OBJ for a 2020 1st + M Jones (oddly hesitant for reasons specific to league that aren’t really worth detailing)

Morning Bloom,

Standard scoring non-ppr league.  Need flex:

Hunt vs MIA - enough work for him in a non-ppr? I'm also a Chubb owner

A Robinson vs NYG - Has not done anything of late but plays against one of the worst D's 

Parker vs CLE - Very consistent as of late; wind may be a concern

Thank you as always!!

Hey Sigmund, 

Too many Raiders? Starting Jacobs, Waller, T. Williams. 

In 1/2 PPR, should I be starting Sterling Shepard over T. Williams to diversify at bit?

Thanks Bloom!

I've been leaning toward either Washington or Johnson as well. With Shepard apparently playing today, would you still roll with either PIT WR over him in a tough matchup vs. CHI?

 

Also, I forgot to include DET Defense @ WAS as an option; you still like ATL over DET in a windy matchup vs. Haskins?

 

Thanks again (as always)!

Morning Bloom... add/drop question for ya this morning.


2-QB PPR league where I‘ve already locked the top playoff seed being (somehow) undefeated so far.  Really only care about weeks 15 and 16, and there’s no waiver pickups allowed after week 14 Sunday games start.

 

Want to add Geo Bernard and RG3 to cover Joe Mixon and Lamar Jackson for injuries rest of season.

 

Potential droppable players are Guice and L. Murray at RB and Mike Williams and Curtis Samuel at WR.  Both are 5th and 6th options at their positions.

 

I’m leaning towards dropping Murray and Samuel, based on schedules for 15 and 16.  What do you think?

 

Thanks in advance!
