  1. Gates or Cook

    Great to hear, bsmurray06!
  2. who do I start this week please help

    Sorry bro, brain fart on my part. Watkins, then!
  3. Gates or Cook

    Well, then you've answered your own question, then. I always go with my gut when the facts tell a variety of stories, and the answer could go either way. And your gut is clearly telling you that Gates is not going to give you what you need today. Far be it from us to tell you otherwise, especially given Gates's lack of targets over the past two games. That said, my advice is Gates over Cook. But no advice is foolproof, obviously....
  4. WDIS Jeremy Hill or Gerhart?

    Gerhart has looked so bad, he belongs on the bench -- no matter the matchup or his apparent role in the offense --- until he shows you otherwise.
  5. Bradshaw if the Arizona run D, with its depleted yet still-somehow-formidable front seven, scares you. Ball if the Arizona run D scares you a bit, but not too much.
  6. In a 1-point PPR, go with Terrance. He'll get 5-6 catches today like falling off a log. If it's a 0.5-point PPR, I'd go with Ball -- barely.
  7. WDIS. Pick 2

    No worries, best of luck!
  8. Flex Spiller, Fitz or Welker?

    Spiller. If it were a 1-point PPR, it would sway towards the wides but I still like to start a RB as a Flex in a 0.5 because of the guaranteed touches -- especially a decent pass catching back like Spiller (now if only Marrone would grow a brain and get him the ball in space!).
  9. I love Tate this week. At home, catching balls like nobody's business (great in a .PPR), with Calvin most likely operating as a decoy. What's not to like? The others are trickier. I suggest Wayne, for the simple fact that his floor is the highest. The Colts are rolling, and you want to be a part of that.
  10. WDIS. Pick 2

    Is it a PPR? If so, then VJax definitely and Sproles probably. If it's not a PPR, then it's a tougher call. Probably bench Sproles for the reasons you just mentioned.
  11. Usually in standard league I always advocate starting a RB over a WR for this exact reason. It all depends on how much the matchup scares you. Arizona's run D has been fantastic, but they've had their injuries/suspensions to their front seven. I wonder if some regression is in order. If you believe Arizona is, like last year, truly a top-5 run defense, then you might want to sit Ball for Roddy. But if their run D doesn't scare you *too* much, go with the guaranteed touches.
  12. Martellus Bennett or Gronk?

    Tough call, but agreed that you should ride the hot hand while it's hot.
  13. Trying to recall their matchups... but when choosing between three quality options I always like to default to the better offense(s) / quarterback play. Roddy for sure, and Floyd over Gracon in a squeaker.
  14. Ivory or Bradshaw

    Tough call. I like Bradshaw to keep doing what he's been doing in an offense that's operating on all cylinders.
  15. Need two to start

    Ellington yes, but I trust Bradshaw over Forsett, especially in a PPR. Both the Colts and Ravens are in a RBBC, but Bradshaw is getting a lot of receiving looks and red zone love in (what I believe is) the better offense. Tough to sit him while he -- and the Colts -- keep scoring.
  16. who do I start this week please help

    Absolutely, positively, 100% DJax. 1. Glennon will be looking for him all day, especially with Evans out; 2. Should New Orleans's offense get back on track in the Superdome, the Bucs will be throwing all day to catch up; 3. New Orleans's pass D is crap-tastic. And whatever you do, don't go with Decker. He has a bad hammy, and if he sits then you're stuck with Fitz, who isn't even the #1 wide on his own team and is a shadow of his former self. Watkins is intriguing but too many question marks with the new QB and Lions' improved pass D. VJax is the play.
  17. WDIS D. Brown, Gerhart, B. Tate?

    Always be wary of a back coming off injury, especially in a 3-headed monster situation like Cleveland's. Who knows how things are going to play out today? Brown, while uninspiring and facing a tough run D, is the play. I expect Rivers to give the Chargers numerous red-zone opportunities against that weak Jet secondary. Could easily see a cheap short-yardage score, and/or perhaps even a receiving score for Brown. Tate, I have no idea. If he goes off on your bench, apologies. But then at least you'll know what you have.
  18. Start sit for week 5

    I agree with JumpingJoe.
  19. WDIS Lots of options can't decide!

    Stacy in your RB spot and Gore in your Flex. Absolutely.
  20. Gates or Cook

    Gates, when healthy and with the offense running at full steam (which it is), is the very definition of consistency. Meanwhile, Jared Cook is fantasy poison. To me, the choice is clear.
  21. Starting Line up Help?

    Eddie Royal is the kind of guy who gets 2 TDs on the waiver wire, then lays a 3-27-0 egg as soon as you put him in your lineup. Stay away. If you're leaning Sproles, that's where you should be leaning. Decision made. As for your D issues, I don't know whether or not to believe in that Falcon D. They looked good last week, but my gut says that even the likes of Bridgewater and Asiata can drop 30 on them if they revert back to standard form. I like the Bills play. Fitzpatrick sucks, Foster is potentially out, and their pass rush will get theirs.
  22. The 1st trade, absolutely. The 2nd trade? I dunno. Ellington could be a monster if he can stay healthy, while Stacy has limitations brought on by his bad team and questionable usage. Meanwhile, Cobb and Roddy are a wash at best. Cobb has looked downright pedestrian this year -- the Packers are Jordy's team, and unlike Julio's Falcons there may not be enough room at the table this year for two high-end receivers in Green Bay.
  23. Need 2 RBs out of this heap!

    Williams for safety/floor, Martin for upside. The others, I wouldn't dream of starting even if someone paid me.
  24. WDIS?

    If you're really feeling a Brady-Vereen connection in KC, Ivory is not foolproof enough for you to go against your gut. But if it were me, I'd have Ivory in there. Detroit's run D may indeed be good (or maybe Eddie Lacy is simply bad?), but Ivory looked fantastic last week. Only game situation (i.e. the Lions going up big early, though I'm a Stafford hater so I highly doubt that will happen even against a weak Jets secondary) will get in the way of a productive day for Ivory. But will he score multiple TDs against that front and a wobbly Geno leading limited trips to the red zone? Probably not. Vereen, meanwhile, feels boom-bust to me. Sometimes I like to look at how my matchups are shaping up compared to my opponent's, and decide whether to aim for a home run or whether a double will do. Vereen's recent usage indicates a greater risk of strike out versus home run, but with Belichick you never know. Vereen could very well score multiple TDs. Or he could go 6-25-0 with two receptions. All bets are off with him.
  25. I agree with everything in this thread, aside from Shorts over Matthews in your Flex. While the garbage time potential is valid, there are three viable wides in Jax (Robinson, Shorts, Hurns), and Lord knows which one Bortles is going to lean on. To me, Robinson is tastier than Shorts, if for no other reason than Shorts's hamstring is downright frightening. I for one can't stand starting guys with hammy issues (see: Decker, Eric last week). And Matthews is tastier than both, as I'm of the opinion that last week was a sign of things to come. Not to mention, the San Fran pass D scares no one. Give him a shot; I know I am, in both of my pools.
