At what age is it okay to feel comfortable staying in on a Friday and Saturday night with some beer to tune in to dateline NBC murder mystery?

he knocks em out over the weekend and we appreciate him even taking a minute of his time to give his opinion

Number nine Number nine Number nine

I've got David Njoku going at 1pm or Gronk going at night. Gronk has missed practice and been kinda not great lately. Start Njoku or roll the dice on Gronk for the late game. I do own Hollister just in case Gronk is a game time scratch. Buuuuut I'd prefer not to have to start him. Non ppr, btw.

 

Thank you!!!

Hey Sig,

Got offered an interesting trade yesterday, in a PPR league I was offered Mixon for my Adrian Peterson and Sammy Watkins.

My current RB's (start 2 each week): Conner, Le'Veon, AP, Collins
Current WR's (start 3 each week): T.Y., Brandin Cooks, Golladay, Watkins, D.J. Moore

Feeling that the upgrade to my RB spot would be worth giving up some of my WR depth even though watkins has been real solid. Sitting at 5-3 and feeling pretty confident in making playoffs so trying to build the strongest starting cast for that playoff run. 

What do you think, accept or na? Appreciate it man.

I know you're a huge Gronk fan, but he doesn't look right this year despite the peripherals all looking the same (except for TDs). What would you target for him in a trade (I have Doyle)?

Thought about packaging him with Jordan Howard (who I'm also trying to get off of) for Aaron Jones/AP+Evans/Marvin Jones or adding a piece to try to get Beckham/Fournette or maybe going after James Connor... thoughts? 14team PPR league: Fitzpatrick; Keenan, Diggs, Fitzgerald, DJ Moore; Michel, J White, Kerryon, J Howard; Doyle, Gronk.

Thanks!

Mr. Bloom,

Ex Winston owner.  Therefore, please rank the below QB's ROS:

Fitzmagic

Trubisky

Dalton

Rivers

Dak

Keenum

 

Any concerns about S. Barkley, if the Giants were to make a change at QB?  Maybe less targets?  Would you in any way, consider dealing him, preemptively?

 

When Quincy Enunwa returns, will he play the slot?  Or, primarily on the outside?

 

Alex Collins owner.  If he is unable to play this week, what Ravens RB is the pickup?

 

As always, your help is greatly appreciated.

Another (mostly) flex question (no PPR, otherwise standard scoring).  Playing the first place team and I'm on the edge of qualifying for the playoffs.

 

I'm starting Goff (QB), Cooks (WR), McCaffrey (RB), Elliott (RB), and Herndon (TE)

I need one more WR and a flex (so, two total, no more than one of whom can be at RB, although both could be at WR), choosing between:

Lindsay

Cohen

Sutton

Gabriel

DJ Moore 

Thanks, Bloom!

Got a few coin flips for you this week...

Mahomes @ CLE    or    Peterman vs CHI   Considering Peterman, because he is playing at home vs a cakewalk defense

Gurley @ NO   or   Booker vs HOU   Gurley may be scripted out, due to a high scoring game

Bloom vs Dodds vs Tremblay   Leaning Tremblay this week, because he has my guys higher than the rest

Hope this gave you a chuckle.  :D

Good morning kind sir. I hope you were able to watch or at least listen to the Vegas Halloween show. Classic bait and switch. 

1. PPR — Start Herndon without any definitive news on Gronk? Would have to  drop Hyde for the likes of Kendricks or JSmith or Shultz otherwise. 

2. PPR — PLEASE PICK 2 ROS (I’m 6-2)

Hyde, Royce Freeman, McGuire, MDavis, Josh Adams, Malcolm Brown, Ware

3. PPR -  need to pick up RB for WEEK 10

Josh Adams vs DAL on Sunday night

Blount @ CHI

Jacquizz vs WAS

 

TIA and good luck!

Thanks in advance!

Goff vs NE

Watson vs DEN

Fitzmagic vs CAR

 

 

Conner vs BAL

Cohen vs BUF

Murray/Cook vs DET

I know Conner is normally a must start but Baltimore is really good against the run, so I needed to check in with you.

 

 

Beckham and Boyd are on bye. Pick 3;

Gordon vs GB

Baldwin vs LAC

Sutton vs HOU

Gallup vs TEN

TJ Jones vs MIN

Treadwill or Robinson vs DET

Good day Sig

Need your wisdom on this starting conundrum. Standard scoring, need two from:

Conner - almost impossible to bench but I did once...against the Ravens early on. Correct decision then, how about now?

AP - only started him once and he failed miserably against the Colts. However, Falcons are dreadful against the run...

Chubb - hasn't been too stellar in the two games but volume is there and they may look to lean on the run more against the Chiefs?

Already starting Hill and M.Thomas - assuming health, you'd start those two without hesitation combined with two from the above?

Thanks and GL to you!

Sig, 

 

1) Cam or Brees (6 points per TD)

2) Sanders or Drake in a standard league

3) In terms of dynasty prospects in a standard league, which two guys would you stash: James Washington, Deshaun Hamilton, Chris Warren, Justin Jackson and Antonio Callaway. 

As always, thx for all you do!

Trade question Sig,

The Gordon owner is shopping him around in a 14 team PPR league, 10 Rec/Rush yards per point.  I think he was asking for Devante Adams and Lindsay from another owner for Gordon.  Is Hill and AP or DJ the right value?  And would you try to get Gordon with my lineup or just stay put?

we start 2RBs, 2WRs, TE, and a RB/WR/T flex

thanks man

my team:

QB: Mahomes, Baker

RB: DJ, AP, Collins, Fournette

WR: Hill, Thielen, Edelman, Smoke, Keke

TE: Graham, Engram

 

His Team:

QB: Rivers

RB: Gordon, Howard, Yeldon, Riddick

WR: JuJu, Moore(SEA), Jordy, Sanu, Agholor, Hogan

TE: Hooper

PPR league. Need one RB:

* N. Chubb vs KC -- Good matchup, but could get blown out by KC offense. Unsure if he'll be catching balls out of the backfield.

or

* A. Jones @NE -- Decent matchup. Did he breakout last week? Not sure. Should be a high scorer.

Note: I'm projected to win by a large margin. Probably looking for floor vs. ceiling.

Who?

Thanks

Need a QB. 6 points per passing TD, 1 pt for every 5 completions.

* M. Stafford @MN -- Stafford's record against Zimmer's D not so good. Not a great matchup. 

* D. Prescott vs TN -- Not a great matchup, but Dak trending up and Cooper in fold. (Note: I am also starting Zeke...lot of eggs in a low scoring basket).

* B. Mayfield vs KC -- May have to play catchup, but KC secondary has been playing better and may get Houston back.

* C. Keenum vs HOU -- Houston has a bunch of injuries in the secondary, but DEN just lost DT. 

Who?

Thanks

Need 2 WRs of these 4. PPR league.

* J. Gordon vs GB -- Should be a shootout. Not sure if J. Alexander will be on Gordon. Getting targeted.

* J. Brown vs PIT -- Got deep vs Steelers in first matchup. Pit D has tightened up a bit.

* M. Valdes-Scantling @NE -- Allison may be out. Shootout potential.

* DJ Moore vs TB -- Great matchup. Torry Smith ruled out.

Note: Projected to win by decent margin. Probably looking for floor vs. ceiling.

Which 2?

Thanks

Hey Bloom, last week you advised Peterson over Cohen and, though I was cursing after the 1st quarter, you were right!

need 2 RBs from Conner, Peterson, Cohen, Chubb, Collins. Conner didn’t too well at home to the Ravens, should I consider (gasp) benching him this week?

thanks, oh wise one!

You've provided great answers thus far this year.  I may not have taken all your advice (to my own detriment) so thank you.

League 1:

  • QB w/ standard scoring 
    • Rivers or Ryan (leaning Rivers off the bye w/ Ryan stats on road being poor although Rivers on the road too)
  • Need 2 RB w/ standard scoring + PPR
    • Conner, Chubb, Gordon, Howard (leaning Gordon and Chubb w/ Conner vs Balt and Gordon still struggling in my view and a tough BUF DEF although I think Conner is probably more of a threat to catch the ball than Chubb but I don't know??)
    • Can you also provide/suggest a contingency plan if Gordon is out?  I do have Ekelar.
  • Need 1 for FLEX w/ standard scoring + PPR
    • based on who you might not have suggested above at RB + Ekelar or Funchess (leaning Funchess)
    • Same thing here if Gordon is out and what impact?

League 2: 

  • Need 2 RB w/ standard scoring + PPR and bonus at 100 yds rushing as well as bonus w/ 100 yds receiving
    • Gordon, Chubb, Ingram, Ekelar (leaning Gordon & Chubb)
    • Same request as above if Gordon is out.  Good thing is that both LAC and NO play 4PM games
  • ****WR  Starting Hopkins and Landry *****
  • Need a FLEX (same scoring as above)_
    • Odd man out RB from above? or Cole Beasley or Marquez Valdes Scantling (MVS targets increasing week by week)

 

Thank You
