Week 16 Questions For Bloom

Recommended Posts

On 12/19/2019 at 1:54 PM, Mark B said:

Hey Sigmund! Thank you for all your work! My question involves Fitzpatrick vs Rodgers. My opponent this week has¬†Parker and looks to be starting Laird (bc I snatched up Boone ūüėČ). My first step in this decision is the one-to-one comparison which based on¬†Rodgers recent production seems like a wash. To me the tie breaker comes down to the question: Should I start¬†Fitzpatrick to basically buoy my team¬†if Parker and/or Laird catch TDs? Is this a good idea or am I overthinking it? Thanks again!!!

id go rodgers, weather broke the tie

i like your choices. mw vs fuller is a toss up, i like PIT over BAL both great options, im fine with singletary over dewash, singletary better back, tougher matchup, dewash got fat on cheap receptions

PPR league. Of course, a MN backfield question. Two Questions:

(1) Which RB:

* M. Boone vs GB -- Has taken starter reps all week in practice.

* D. Washington @LAC -- Jacobs out. Had about 2/3s of touches last time Jacobs was out.

* P. Laird @CINC -- Matchup is there, but Gaskins nearly split.

As of Friday afternoon, Cook and Mattison have not practiced. Let's assume that Zimmer does NOT rule them out by Sunday at 1 EST.

(2) If Cook and Mattison are NOT declared out, and you select Boone above in (1), would you still go with Boone?  If no, who is the best option of Washington vs. Laird? go w Boone

I'm favored by 10 with the likes of Lamar, Barkley, Ekeler, Lockett, K. Allen, Ertz, and Drake. Not sure if I should play it safe or go for the home run (Boone).

Which RB?

D question. 

* KC @CHI -- KC D coming on. Trubisky has thrown an INT in 5 consecutive games. KC with a lot to play for. CHI not so much.

* Indy vs CAR -- Was originally thinking this was my pick, but after the NO thrashing a little gunshy. Even with a rookie QB, CAR has weapons. 

* SEA vs AZ -- Originally had SEA D higher, but they are seriously banged up now. Clowney doubtful and others iffy. Could be a high O/U. AZ coming off a nice win.

* ATL vs JAX -- ATL D a little jeckyl and hyde. If you get the good ATL D could pay dividends against a JAX team that could be playing out the string.

* LAC vs OAK -- Chargers playing better D, last home game, and OAK may just throw in the towel after that brutal loss.

Which D?

Don't see many kicker questions on here, but why not? It's the championship game.

* R. Gould vs LAR -- Could see this lower scoring than most think. SF does have problems in the redzone though. Weather looks iffy...rain and wind around 13MPH.

* M. Badgely vs OAK -- Matchup is there for LAC to score points. Weather should be fine in LA.

Full PPR

TE - Waller or Henry (Playing each other @LAC)

WR - Moore @IND, Kupp @SF, Thielen vs GB (Pick 2)

Picked up the Denver D and have them in @ home against the Lions. Baltimore is my other D @ Cleveland. Is that a mistake?

Thanks in advance for your advice!

fine w DEN over BAL

Championship Time!

Standard scoring, non-ppr league.

I need to start 3 of these 4 players for my last two wr spots and a flex.

Cooper vs PHI - Nothing last week; Dak banged up a bit

Robinson vs KC - Slow and steady all year long

Parker vs CIN - Only concern is how good Cincy defense is against the pass. Maybe nobody has had to throw much on them all year long

Mack vs Car - He burned me last week (lucky I didn't need it). Now he gets the worst run D in the league.


Thank you as always......

In PPR and (4pt/TD, -1pt/INT), please pick a QB, Flex and Superflex: Wentz (considering benching due to injuries and matchup), D.Jones, Lock, F1, B.Scott, D.Washington, A.Miller. I’m a strong favorite.

Thanks Sig for everything you do and have a very Merry Christmas!

you were right on the money last week! need the magic 1 more time!

it's half PPR

2 of the the 4 WR   Lockett, AJ Brown (he's rolling Tannehill at the moment), Fuller, PErriman, anthony miller

Pretty sure i'm rolling Carson, and Mixon, so only the flex for either Kamara, Ekeler, Mostert, Boone.

Good Morning Sig!

First off‚ÄĒawesome reference and discussion on the podcast regarding Jacob‚Äôs Ladder and Danny Aiello! That was a great conversation and made my day to listen to. Thanks!

OK two championship matchups:

1. FFPC so TE premium. 

RB 2 Boone over Bell. I think you agree on this

WR1 Sutton

WR2 Golloday, Kupp or Ward?

Flex Jarrod Cook, Golloday, Kupp, Bell, Ward?


Standard league with 5 point 300 yard passing bonus and 100 yard rush or receiving

QB: Brees or Winston? I’m leaning Brees as I think I’m a slight favorite but would love your opinion 

WR: pick two 

Parker, Lockett, Golloday, AJ Brown 

Flex: Fournette or a third WR from above. I’m leaning benching Fournette for one of the WRs.


Thanks Sig and Happy Holidays!!

RIP Danny Aiello hope everyone sees Jacobs Ladder

Scoring .5 PPR/ 1 point per 10 yards rush/rec, .4 points per 10 yards passing and 6-9 points for rush/rec TDS depending how long they are 

Pick 1

Dak or Cousins...obviously major concern about Dak’s injury

Pick 1

Derrick Henry, Stefan Diggs, DK Metcalf ...concerned about Henry’s injury plus saints run D also prospect of Saints getting up big like they did Monday night and Titans abandoning run. 

Thanks in Advance!


agree with your concerns and trust your gut, wont talk you out of benching those guys

Non-ppr distance bonuses for long TDs.

H.Henry or Higbee?

Higbee is on fire, while Henry is flailing, but Everett is back and SF is 2nd against TEs this year while the Raiders are 2nd to last. I'm really struggling with this one.

Also, would you start Boone over D.Henry or A.Jones? I just can't see it, but again, the match-up is great and Henry's hammy concerns me.



id go hunter and keep boone on bench, but im excited about boone wont talk you out of benching derrick for reasons you listed

Hi Sig:

I am a slight favorite in my PPR Finals matchup and am considering diversifying my lineup.  I have three questions for you:

   1. Given, that I have Zeke, do I diversify away from Cooper and risk starting Perriman? Perriman's hands and target shares worry me. im good w perriman over cooper

   2. I think the better Tampa Bay play is starting Howard over Goedert at TE? have them as coinflip, goedert higher floor howard higher ceiling

  3. Finally, do I roll with Ekeler over DeAndre or Boone as my flex? yes


My lineup choices in bold:

QB: Lamar Jackson

RB (start 2) : Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott, Austin Ekeler, DeAndre Washington, Mike Boone

WR (start 2): Michael Thomas, Amari Cooper, Breshad Perriman

TE (1):  Dallas Goedert, O.J. Howard

FLEX (1): Austin Ekeler, DeAndre Washington, Mike Boone.


Happy holidays.

2. 12-team league, 0.5 PPR, normal-size rosters

For my WR2: OBJ, Juju, Slayton, or Ward

Happy holidays!

Flex - J. White, D. Washington or Boone as my flex? Leaning White to be safe. Also, if you prefer one of the other two, would Edelman being out make you lean more towards White?

WR3 - Conley, G. Tate, T. Williams, Stills or pick up Ward or Watson off waivers? I know this is ugly. Leaning Conley and hope Chark is out.

Thanks Sig, appreciate all your hard work all year

edelman will play, i am putting boone in over white bc i am an underdog, but i agonized over it, wont talk you out of white

Bloom! Tell me your gut on the following, thanks!

all PPR scoring with TE premium 1.5pt per rec. 

league 1: PPR starting 2rb2wr2flex, my opponent is starting deshaun Watson, I have Hopkins, Kupp, Fuller. On 2wr, I'm thinking about starting Hopkins and fuller together. And bench Kupp unless you think I should start Kupp over any of the following Ingram/Ekeler/Gordon/Drake (those 4 are my 2rb2flex), I have Boone/D Washington/Hunt on my bench also. Do you agree or suggest otherwise? agree w fuller>kupp. id go hunt boone over gordon/drake but its tight

league 2: select 2 out of the following: Boone (if Mattison doesn't play)/D washtington/Rojo/D Montgomery/Justin Watson. And would you start Mahomes over Wilson? yes

league 3: debating btw Drake or Golladay on Flex. And hooper or Higbee on TE. Boone or gurley on RB.

league 4: need help on 2 starting WR positions from Boyd/J Brown/DeDe/Watkins and Erickson/Gage/Bourne/G Ward on WW. My current plan is to roll with Boyd and John Brown (even he will matchup with Gilmore). Also need 2rb2flex out of the following (TE premium), Aaron Jones/d freeman/Boone/ertz/d Washington/Higbee/Mostert/hunt.

Finally DST, pls rank the order you would start this week assume you have all of them: BAL/NE/DEN/SF/SEA NE BAL SF DEN SEA

Hi Sigmund,

I need help on my WR2. I need to pick one in PPR:

Kupp, D Johnson, Slayton. I could also pick up Amendola or Ward on waivers. 

Thanks for all the hard work and dedication. This is the first time I post in this chat and I find it amazing you take time to answer these questions. 

Feliz Navidad, Sig. 

feliz navidad! I like to always make an offering of my time back to the place I came from! this was THE PLACE for football talk on the internet before social media and i made my career in FF building my chops to fit in here

PPR League.

Need to decide between D. Washington or M. Boone.

Some notes:

* I'm projected to win by 25 as of right now.

* My opponent played J. White, E. Sanders, and OJ Howard yesterday. They all underperformed. He has the likes of Dak, Carson, D. Adams, DJ Moore, and T. Boyd left.

* I have Lamar, Barkley, Ekeler, K. Allen, T. Lockett, Ertz, K. Drake left to play.

* MN has clinched a playoff berth and Mattison hasn't gotten a full practice in for two weeks. Probably less incentive to play him or even make him active.

Would you play it safe with Washington? Or go big or go home with Boone?

Diontae Johnson


John Ross

Hunter Henry

Russell Gage

Thanks in advance!

Hey Sig,

.5 PPR - 1st place game....This is a coin flip as I am only down by 3 in projections.

Edelman, Chark, Danny A. in the flex? (danny as fall back)

Goedert or Jonnu - opponent has Tannehill?

Playing for 3rd  - Minshew, Mitch, or Dalton....streaming has been to me this year but Josh Allen's playoff run is rough.  I can also pick him up.

Perriman, Diggs, or Kupp for WR2?
