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 know we are splitting hairs here and your projections have Roethlisberger - but I’m thinking of putting in Alex Smith against that all pro Atlanta defense since Roethlisberger 1) has not fared well on the road as we all know and 2) hasn’t done well against the Ravens of late. 

TL;DR Alex Smith or Roethlisberger? 

Thanks Sig.

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

watch out for jacquizz rodgers! lol

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!

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

i might stand pat with fournette coming back. would trade peterson before DJ. Getting out of Peterson might be smart with possibility of breakdown. hill/AD for gordon is close, wish he wasn't carrying a hamstring issue now

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.


* 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.

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.

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?

As a 5th RB stash in a ppr league, who would you rather roster, Peyton Barber or Elijah McGuire? What is McGuire's upside?

mcguire had some explosive plays last year, but probably barber with jones out

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!

Half point PPR: 

rb, rb, wr, wr, rb/wr

chubb, AP, Cohen, brandin Cooks, Keenan Allen, Kenny G

which player do you keep on the bench?  

Played against Kittle in TNF, so behind a bit of that changes rational.

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? gotta plug in ekeler for gordon if he's out

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 ekeler in if gordon out
  • ****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


good luck!

Hey Sig,

Standard (non-PPR) scoring, 10 team league, start QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, TE, Flex, D/ST, K with 6 bench spots.  Currently first in points scored but a game out of first place at 5-3.  Have zero FAAB remaining.  Three questions:

  1. Whom should I drop in order to pick up a kicker (assuming I can't swing a 2-for-1 trade)? 
  2. Engram was dropped due to his bye.  Should I drop a second player to add him given Kittle's week 11 bye?  Won't be able to acquire him later given lack of FAAB. No
  3. Best available D/STs this week are Wash v. ATL, Pit at Bal or Bal vs Pit -- pick one of them up, or try to hold NE through GB matchup and week 11 bye in order to lock down the championship week matchup vs. Buffalo? Jags and Eagles were also dropped and are available due to byes this week.

QB: Rivers, Roethlisberger

RB: M. Gordon, Zeke, Conner, Ingram, Kerryon, Collins

WR: JuJu, Alshon, J. Gordon, Watkins, Ridley, Lockett 

TE: Kittle

D/ST: Patriots

Thanks for the help!

12 Team, Full Point PPR


Thanks for taking the time.  I really appreciate everything you do!

QB issues this season. Right now I have Stafford in my lineup as starter this week. On the wire still have Flacco or Prescott available. Do I drop Dalton on bye (or some other player),  and do I grab Flacco or Prescott to start this week?

Scoring is 1 pt/20 yds pass, 4 pts/pass TD, 1 pt/10 yds rush & 6 pts/rush TD

go with staffor

Hey Sig - 

1 PPR - Ridley or C Davis? Ben or Fiitz?  Coutee is on waivers but would he be worth adding for Allison?  I also have Hopkins.

.5 PPR - Tevin or Jordan HowardSmokey or Trequan in flex?   Ben or Smith?

.5 PPR - Ekeler or Dion Lewis?  

Drop Baltimore for Buffalo? No

PPR league. Need a potential S. Diggs replacement:

* D. Baldwin vs. LAC -- Seems like a universal "sit" this week. Does he run into C. Heyward?

* W. Snead vs PIT -- Steelers give up a ton to slot WRs.

* D. Johnson vs KC -- Maybe garbage time points out of the backfield in a blowout?

* D. Booker vs HOU -- if R. Freeman out, will get some play.

* E. McGuire @MIA -- Activated from IR. Miami gives up a ton of points to RBs rushing and receiving.

* K. Bibbs @ATL -- ATL gives up a ton to receiving RBs.
