I hope there are an overwhelming number of players taking a knee.

Have fun with the rest of the games. I wish I could watch but I don't have a way to.

Derek Carr or Carson Palmer?

Tough choice this week - I need to play a 2nd RB & a flex from Ingram, Sproles, Bilal Powell & Kerwynn Williams (standard league) & I have Hunter Henry on the bench too

I'm leaning toward Sproles/Hunter Henry in the flex - simply because I'm leery of the NO @ CAR matchup & Ingram's potential to do poorly - however he has been a consistent (just not high scoring) RB - others not so much.

Very leery of trusting the Jest offense or K. Williams after last week's performance.

Two questions:
Chris Thompson (vs OAK) or James White (vs HOU)

and

DSJ at Minny or Agholor vs the Giants?

Kinda feel like both are toss-ups. Best available RB in FA is Jalen Richard and Frank Gore. Got two WR's most likely out this week (Hogan & Cobb) so any help that doesn't spectacularly backfire like last week's appreciated.

Also have Gio at RB, if that helps. Which it doesn't.

\i literally never have had a good RB since Alfred Morris's breakout season

Sproles, and go with your gut with Hunter or Ingram which it seems like you did.

DSJ since he won't draw the good Minny CB, but he's boom or bust.  As for the RBs I'd probably go Gore vs the Browns unless its ppr then I'd lean White
 
2017-09-24 11:15:17 AM  

FriarReb98: Frank Gore.


I like Gore this week if you're not expecting big numbers and just want a steady RB placeholder. Maybe 50 or so yards and a catch or 2 for 20. Give him a coin flip chance of a TD

pro-tip - if you have any baltimore or jax players, you may need to go back in time to decide about them.
 
2017-09-24 11:16:54 AM  
The bane of my year so far-- Crowder or DJax every week. In theory I could also play Jared Cook since we dont distinguish TEs from WRs

16 team ppr

Haha... I almost said something last week. That dude has been pimping hare-brained advice for like 3 seasons now. I wish I had 7 or 8 owners like him in my league.

Got some Jordan Howard questions.

In one league, it's Howard or Riddick or Gore or Chris Thompson. 0.5 ppr.

In the other, it's just Howard or Thompson. No ppr.

Leaning Riddick in the first and Howard in the latter, but with Kelley out maybe Thompson is a good look?
 
2017-09-24 11:32:32 AM  
Who do I flex:
JJ Nelson
Chris Carson
Johnathan Stewart
Kelvin Benjamin

CAM V n.o OR wENTZ V GINTS?

I think both of those games are going to be a shootout, so riddick or thompson would be a coinflip for me in the ppr.

Yeah, probably Howard in the 2nd. I could see the Redskins playing that Perine rookie for goal line vulturing. He's huge

I streamed the Ravens defense over the Jaguars defense (whom I dropped to make it happen). fark my fantasy life.
 
2017-09-24 12:12:16 PM  
Should I start Austin Hooper against the Lions or hope that Jordan Reed actually is healthy enough to play for a full game AND get more than 1-3 points?

germ78: I streamed the Ravens defense over the Jaguars defense (whom I dropped to make it happen). fark my fantasy life.


That's tough. I try to avoid those London games entirely if possible. I can't ever figure out how those teams are going to play, though it seems like Jax plays a lot of the London games so it started being an advantage for them I guess.

I mean, to be honest, thanks to Crabtree's huge game and Matty Ice handing off so damned much, it wouldn't have changed things if I had started Dez (though it would've made up 8 of the 11 points I lost by).

Starting Ben vs the Bears this week instead of Ice, fwiw. Even with it being Week 3, aka The Week That Totally Farks With You, I think it's the right choice.

I had Reed last year. THat dude is one of the most frustrating players I've owned. CBS is reporting Reed "unlikely to play"

Lt. Cheese Weasel: CAM V n.o OR wENTZ V GINTS?


That's tough...I'd say Cam but the Panthers haven't scored much the past couple of weeks....so Wentz vs the Giants sounds better but then you know that it's a divisional game and at some point the Giants will "wake up" and actually win a game...

/All that to say...
//I'll go with Cam

Yeah I see that and I am really tempted to sit Reed...not just because of health reasons but because even when he is playing he doesn't seem targeted much.  :|

/heck with it...I'm sitting Reed

Amari Cooper/Kendal Wright or Crabtree/Higgins?

FWIW -- THe talking heads on NFL Network are saying that Cohen kid is going to eat up all of Howards targets/receptions in your ppr league

Can you not start Cooper and Crabtree because of format, or just reluctant to play 2 WR on same team?

Can't start together. Has to be one of those combos

Jj Nelson or Danny amendola for a deep league flex?  Help!
 
2017-09-24 12:52:32 PM  
I'm concerned about the jj Nelson hamstring. (I drafted Allen Robertson so it's waver wire help for me).

I"m playing Nelson and Fitz both. JJ practiced saturday

I got GREAT numbers from Ravens defense first two weeks.

This week: -6.  Yikes.
 
2017-09-24 07:30:30 PM  
Did Hunter Henry sleep with Philip Rivers's girlfriend this past week? All I see is a 0 in my scoreboard and a ton of irate people on twitter.

Way to be an idiot, idiot.

/that's directed solely at me, not at anyone kind enough to offer advice.
