Hi Sig, grats on another terrific season. The live Youtube updates (e.g., trade day) were terrific.


Really tough one for me this week. I'm a decided underdog in the Final as my opponent has Saquon, Chubb, and Derrick Henry.

Full PPR.

I have Kamara locked in as RB1, and Tyreek and Diggs as my WR1 and WR2.

Who would you pick for my RB2 and Flex out of the following?

Joe Mixon (with all his WRs out and the CLE D keying on him)

David Johnson (can't see the Cards scoring much against the Rams)

Damien Williams (impressive performances the past 2 weeks, SEA not intimidating)

Jaylen Samuels (good game last week, NO D pretty good?)

John Kelly (Gurley looks unlikely to be risked much)


Ugh!  Choices!

Thanks for your help so far this season. It helped get me this far so looking to finish it off with a championship!

PPR league in which I'm about a 10 point favorite


Need a flex: Damein Williams (obvious if Ware sits). If Ware plays which one at flex: Ware, D. Williams, D. Hamilton, D. Pettis, Jordy Nelson?


Lost AJ Green, Sanders and now possibly Smith-Schuster. If Smith-Schuster sits which WR: D. Hamilton, T. Patrick, J. Nelson, Foster or pick up/start Eli Rogers or James Washington? (Opponent has Big Ben and Antonio Brown). If JuJu plays, do you trust him over the above?


I also have the advantage that my opponent will be done with all his players after the late afternoon games on Sunday. All noon games for him with the exception of Big Ben and Antonio Brown. I'll still have options at Flex & WR2 (if Smith-Schuster sits) of a SNF Flex of Ware or Damein Williams or MNF WR of Hamilton, Patrick or J. Nelson. How would you play it if I trail by just a few points (<10 points) vs. trailing by a much larger deficit?


At DST, points for TDs, sacks, turnovers and points/yards given up. Dallas, Colts or Cleveland

 Hi sig!

thanks and I made to 4 league finals, but I have gurley and Conner (already out and I don’t have samuels) in most of my league finals, problems and need your advice!

league 1: .5 ppr starting 2rb2wr1flex, I’m 17pts underdog.

QB (4pt td) Ryan or rivers or picking up nick fole or darnold (to stack with Robby Anderson I plan to start as WR2). I just sit rivers and plan to start Ryan.

WR: I’m starting edelman/Robby anderson with DJ Moore on bench and foster/Pettis/Hamilton on ww.

RB+flex: gurley/Damien williams/David johnson/Jamaal williams/Ingram/CJA/John kelly. If gurley starts, my best 3 options are gurley/Damien williams/DJ? But if gurley sits, Jamaal Williams is next best option? But Jamaal Williams play 1pm, if I sit him to gamble on gurley playing, my fallback options are Ingram or CJA/John Kelly, acceptable? If you have Jamaal Williams ranked higher than DJ in .5ppr anyways, then I should just start Jamaal at 1pm, then use DJ as my fallback option if gurley sits? 

dst (yahoo league setting): choose 1: min/cle/dal/atl/den

league 2: .5 ppr starting 2rb3wr1flex, I’m 8 pts favorite 

RB+flex: pick 3 Saquon/Lindsay/Jamaal Williams/fournette/Coleman/Ingram/miller

League 3: .5 ppr starting 2rb2wr1flex, I’m 8 pts underdog

RB+flex: pick 3, if gurley starts: gurley/carson/mcguire/Robby anderson/Ballage/Ingram/arob

if gurley sits: pick 3, carson/mcguire/Robby anderson/Ballage/Ingram/arob/cja

Carson is a must start, but Both Mcguire and Robby play 1pm, my current plan is to play McGuire only and if gurley sits, my fallback options are pick 1 out of ingram/arob/CJA/ballage

TE: Vance McDonald or Jarwin or Uzomah or lacosse or herndon

DST: Ten or NE (I started TEN)

League 4: .5 ppr starting 2rb2wr1flex, I’m 10 pts underdog

Qb (4pt td league) rivers or Lamar Jackson or fole or darnold (to stack with Robby Anderson at my WR2) or Mariota, I started Lamar now become 12 pts underdog.

WR: pick 2, woods/Robby Anderson/fitz and foster/Callaway/Humphries/Reynolds/Hamilton on ww

RB+flex+TE: pick 4, if gurley starts (but not 100%): gurley/Chubb/Damien williams/McGuire/Jamaal Williams/jaylen Samuels/Zach ertz. If gurley sits, pick 4, Chubb/Damien williams/McGuire/Jamaal Williams/jaylen Samuels/Zach ertz/CJA

my best options are gurley/chubb/Damien williams + jaylen samuels at TE? Chubb and Damien williams are must starts. I could start ertz at TE at 1pm and save Jaylen Samuels as my fallback option if gurley sits. I also have McGuire and Jamaal but they both play at 1pm. If I sits ertz and start jaylen at my TE spot then CJA and fitz are my only fall back options if gurley sits.

DST: IND or DAL or CLE or den or ATL

league 5: full pt ppr starting 3wr2rb1flex, I’m 20 pts underdog

qb: (6pt td league): Prescott or Brady or josh Allen

wr: pick 3, thielen/Robby anderson/Shepard/Reynolds/Hamilton/Mike williams or DJ Moore/Curtis Samuel on ww

rb+flex, pick 3, if gurley starts, gurley/Mack/Jamaal Williams/Michel/breida: if gurley sits, mack/Jamaal Williams/Michel/breida/CJA

Mack/Jamaal/michel all play at 1pm. my current plan is to start Jamaal/Mack and sit Michel to gamble on gurley will play. If gurley sits my fallback options are pick 1 among breida/Reynolds/Hamilton 

Thanks so much!

Hi Sig,

Congrats on the the move and happy holidays!

thx mostly to you, Matt and Jene, I'm in the finals for 2 of my 3 leagues.  Would appreciate your thoughts on starting line ups (both are full ppr)

League #1:

2 of 3 QBs: Goff, Lamar, Luck

 best 3 from: Robby Anderson, Mike Evans, Dante Pettis, Josh Reynolds, Gurley, Kelley, and possibly CJ Anderson if I can pick him up on waivers.

Best D from: Patriots, Cleveland, Indy or Texans (yds and pts allowed, etc..)

League #2: (20 pt underdog)

pick one: Watson or Lamar

best 3 of: John Kelley, Chris Conley, Ian Thomas, Courtland Sutton, and Trequan Smith

PPR League. Gurley situation along with Ware being doubtful has me re-thinking my backfield this week. 

Need two of these guys:

* T. Gurley @AZ -- GTD. This is troubling. Even if he starts maybe he doesn't get his usual touches with CJ and Kelly in the mix.

* D. Williams @SEA -- Ware now doubtful. Wasn't going to play him but now this is tempting and possibly a must start.

* M. Mack vs NYG -- Great matchup, NYG offense without Odel. Could see a lot of offense from Indy.

Crazy to sit Gurley here?

Issue: D. Williams plays  tonight so have to make a decision on him today. Right now starting him minus any new info. If that's the case it would come down to Mack or Gurley.

Which two?

Hi Sig. 

.5 ppr

Need 2 RBs from: Chubb/Mixon/J. Williams/Coleman/MaGuire

Need 1 WR from: Baldwin/R. Anderson

Would you start David Johnson over the following: J. Williams/Mack/D. Williams? (looks like Ware is out)

Darnold or Keenum over Lamar Jackson?


.5 ppr

Need 3 RBs from Chubb/D.Henry/Melv Gordon/J.Williams/D.Williams (looks like Ware is out)

Need 1: Rivers vs Baltimore, Lamar Jackson @ chargers, Mayfield vs Cinci ( I also have Chubb and wonder if doubling down is dumb)

Need 1: Ebron vs NYG or Jaylen Samuels (tightend eligibility) @ Saints

Need 1: Damien williams @ seattle or Marlon Mack vs NYG


Thanks Bloom

Got 3x Championship questions for ya:

1. Which DST do you start this week:

  • TEN vs. WAS
  • MIN @ DET

Edit: Rolled with TEN, the last second pick-6 was huge.

2. Worried Gurley owner: Even IF he's healthy enough to get the start, would you bench him in favor of Lindsay? or is it a "If Gurley is good enough to play, he's in your lineup" (.5PPR)?

FWIW, my other 2 RB's are Kamara & Chubb

3. Standard scoring, wasted my WR1 on Keenan Allen; so for my WR2 do I roll with Juju or Robbie Anderson?


Thanks as always and Happy Holidays!

Ok Sid thanks for doing this.  Championship week and im driving myself  crazy trying to decide between Roethlisberger and  Watson.  First  try through I put in Ben but since then im wafling back and forth.  NO gives up a ton of points to QBs  but lately they have been much stingier.  add to that JuJu's late week injury and  Ben isnt looking as good.  Watson against a philly secondary going the wrong direction but Watson has been the inferior start most weeks this year.  Obviously cant start Watson if Nuk cant go but cant see waiting  for the 4pm Pitt game  to find out about JuJu either?   ARGHHHH    lol   what would you do? 

  2nd question  Ive been starting Ingram all year with mixed results.  Picked up McQuire 2 weeks ago but never started him.  Is this the week to make that  switch?  Im leaning yes.

Jeffrey (giving thought to him over Evans, although Evans surprised with a solid game against Balt last week) or Evans

Flex (Need 1):

Fournette, Michel, or Evans/Jeffrey (whoever you sat above)


Trubisky or Mayfield

You like Miami defense this week? Debating them or Denver. 

Leaning Mitch, Jeffrey, Evans, Miami

Thanks for a great 2018 Sig!

Ok kicker question ( I know I know)    So Ive been streaming kickers all year and  decided to pick up Carlson OAK  who  hasnt scored many points but HAS  scored the 4th most points in the last 3 games...  at home against a Denver team  who has given up the 10th most points to kickers......  THEN I looked at fbg projections and also rankings at some other sites and  nobody seems to be as high on him as I am? ....  so I picked up best available  on fbg  who is Joseph  Cleveland who has scored fewer points per game than  Carlson, but they get  Cincy at home  who is giving up the most points to kickers this year.    The delima is I want to be right and everybody else to be  wrong .  I think Im just that smart...  BUT  Im also smart enough to know that Im not smarter thant all these other people who are saying Im an idiot for even considering Carlson.  What to do?

This should be a non-brainer, but....


I have Brady, Trubisky, and Lamar as my QB options.....Brady at home against a Bills team that is stout on defense, especially against the pass....normally, Brady is matchup proof, especially at home...but Brady is not Brady of old ..he's showing his age.....NE needs this one....and I expect them to win, but I could see a defensive struggle, just like the first time they played


Trubisky has a good matchup, but it's on the road, and it's Trubisky.....I don't feel good about hitching my championship wagon to him, really.


Lamar on the road vs. a good San Diego D......not really feeling that either.


I'm leaning strongly with Brady, as I feel like now is not the time to give up on him.....but Trubisky is intriguing...ughh

Happy Holidays Bloom!

In a PPR league where waiver wire is closed. :(

My only roster choices are Gurley or Adams.

Would normally be an easy choice (Gurley) except Adams plays 3 hours before Gurley and I have to make a decision before he plays, as if I go with Gurley and he is then declared out I get nothing.

Do I start Adams and get a few safe points or roll the dice that Gurley plays and risk a goose egg?

Thanks for this and everything all season.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.


So, two questions for Championship week.  Going for the win!

This is for a 12 team, PPR league.


1) Which QB: Aaron Rodgers, Baker Mayfield, or Dak Prescott?


2) Not sure what to do about Gurley - The Rams playing the later time slot makes this really complicated. 

I need 1 RB and 1 TE from the following:

 --- Evan Engram, Jaylen Samuels (RB/TE Eligible), Elijah McGuire, Mark Ingram, Todd Gurley, CJ Anderson, John Kelly.

I see these as my options:


A) Play Elijah McGuire (1:00 game) and Jaylen Samuels (4:25 game) at TE and avoid the Rams all together.

B) Play Todd Gurley (4:05 game) and Evan Engram (1:00 game) at TE.  Pivot to Jaylen Samuels (4:25 game) if Gurley sits.

C) Play Todd Gurley (4:05 game) and Jaylen Samuels (4:25 game) at TE.  Pivot to CJ Anderson, John Kelly, or Mark Ingram (4:25 game) if Gurley Sits.


• Do you think one of those is right?  If so which one?

• Say you chose option Cwhich RB do you pivot to, should Gurley sit? Anderson, Kelly, or Mark Ingram?

Robby then Baldwin

Thanks! Now I'm kinda stuck at Flex, so would love some feedback if you can. 

Choices are Baldwin, Breida, CJ Anderson and just picked up Blue since. Miller is out 

 0.5 ppr, 1 point per 10 yards received, 2 point bonus for 100, 150 and 200 yards.

Thanks again
