  • Chet would you do this move in a ppr

    I give Cobb & Nicks for Andre Johnson & Spiller, my other two WR are Welker & Wayne, Spiller would slot into my 2nd Flex spot behind, Mathews, McCoy & Martin, 12 team ppr

  • Hey Chet. You told me earlier you’d try to hang onto Leshoure if possible. What makes you say this? I know he scored three times last week but doesn’t that sort of performance come off a bit flukey rather than as a sign of things to come?

    • * this league is non-ppr if that makes any difference

    • I just think he’s a solid runner in a wide open offense. Should have room to run with the Lions offense clicking. He’s nothing too special as a player, it’s his situation I like. But he’s expendable if needed.

  • 14 Team PPR: I am still undecided whether I should start Crabtree or Britt as my WR3…

  • Good Morning Doc Off to vegas and setting lineup on the road! Need your opinion on a PPR Flex Start from Felix, PT or I could drop Titus for E.Sanders and plug him in for my injured Antonio? Thanx

    • I think I’d lean PT.

  • Kerley or NateWashington?

    • Washington

  • Who do I sub for AHern again this week? Pettigrew @Min, Olsen vDen, Rudolph(no Harvin?) vDet, Tamme, Cook, Fasano, Miller, Casey @Chi?

    Also, nonppr which 2 WR should I start: Stevie, Lloyd, Britt

    • Pettigrew, Lloyd, Britt

  • Surprised not to see Redman here, maybe due to rankings early in the week. With news that Redman is starting MNF, would you play him at flex over Fred Jackson and Daniel Thomas?

    • I’m worried that he’ll split carries with Dwyer, but I would play him over those two.

      • Thanks, I was leaning that way also. Was really trying to decide to if he’s worth benching Stevie Johnson or Lloyd.

  • and now need to drop 3. Thanks in advance

  • Need your help to drop 2 from my bench with ROS in mind:


    • please add Ingram to the above list

    • Turbin, Royster, Dwyer

  • Need 1 WR and 1 flex. Full PPR

    Titus Young, Lance Moore, Reece, Dwyer

    • Young and Reece

  • Start cowboys or broncos dst? Thanks

    • Dallas

  • Would you rather have Bradshaw/Roddy or Charles/Miles for ROS in a STD league?

    • That’s tough. I’m going to say the Charles side.

  • B Lloyd, d. Moore, or t smith to go along with Julio this week???

    • Tough, but I like Lloyd

  • Reece or j-stew as my 2nd rb in a full ppr/bonus league?

    • I like Reece in PPR. Stew is a little safer, but I’d lean Reece.

  • Chet,

    Please pick one for my flex:
    Matt Forte (vs. Houston)
    Dez Bryant (@Philadelphia)
    Denarius Moore (@Baltimore)
    Isaac Redman (vs. Kansas City)


    • Forte

  • Hey Chet,

    I got a couple of leagues going and need your help.

    Who do you like between G. Olsen, B. Myers or K. Rudolph?

    Who do you like between stevie johnson, d-jax or kenny Britt?

    Also, do you think issac redman is a viable flex option this week or do you think mendy or dwyer will get the start?

    Thanks again,


    • Close between Olsen and Myers, but I’m leaning Olsen. I like Britt. Redman should get the start, but it will be a hot hand situation. I think you have to lean toward Redman.

  • Hey Chet. As a Fred Jackson owner, I feel absolutely compelled to get CJ Spiller. The guy who owns him doesn’t start him and is maybe a little weak at WR. I want to offer him a 2-for-1… I know I might be going out on a limb a little, but which do you think I should try first: F-Jax and Britt for Spiller, or Mikel Leshoure and Britt for Spiller? I doubt this, but do you think I’m overpaying in either deal?

    • I would do the FJax/Britt deal, but think I’d keep LeShoure if possible.

  • I’m in a 10 team nonppr 2 QB keeper league where you can keep up to 5 for an infinite amount of time.

    I was offered his Tom Brady and Ryan Mathews for my Andrew Luck and LeSean McCoy. Should I take it?

    My roster
    Qb1- Cam QB2- Luck
    RB- McCoy, LeShoure Flex- SJax
    WR- M. Wallace, VJax TE- Gresham

    Bench- Steve Smith, JStew, DWill, M. Bush, M. Floyd, Gabbert

    As of right now I suppose my keepers would be Luck, Cam, Shady, Wallace and either LeShoure, SJax, DWill or JStew.

    Should i take it or stick with what I’ve got? I’m in 4th place as of now.

    • It’s close, but I think you have to stick with Brady the way the Eagles have been playing.

  • trade lynch and hernadez for mccoy and witten? lynchs schedule is rough ROS. thanks!

    • I think it’s fair and might have a bit more upside

  • Hey Chet, In PPR would either Amendola or Bowe get a big enough boost to pass LMoore in your lineups? If so, do you trust Amendola this week or are you waiting for him to prove his health?

    • I’d lean Bowe and hope for garbage time which he excels at.

  • In a keeper league an owner out of contention offered me Ray Rice ($50) straight up for Doug Martin ($20). I’m in first place and my current backs are McCoy, Martin, Forte, DMC, and Mendy (start up to 4). I feel I should decline because the value for Martin is too good for next year and I’m already deep at rb. Right move?

    • Money wise I can understand not doing it.

  • Hey Chet, T.Young or Amendola @ WR? R.Wilson or Tannehill @ QB? Thanks.

    • PPR I’d go Danny, non I’d go Young. I like Tanny’s matchup more

  • Need a flex this week. Options are: Hilton, SJax, DHB, Drich, N. Washington, Daniel Thomas. Have Forte and Spiller at RB and Dem. Thomas, Bowe and Lance Moore at WR (Fitz is usually my WR2). Who gets the nod?

    • I’d lean Dan Thomas

  • Should I trade Mcgahee, Pierre Thomas, and Roddy for Lynch and Decker? This would give me foster lynch cobb and decker in a 2 rb 2 wr league .5 ppr.

    • what about for lynch and demaryius?

      • pushing for demaryius but if they won’t budge should I proceed with offer 1?

      • I’d probably do the Thomas trade, pretty even on the Decker one.

  • Alright Chet. I’m 3-6 and need to win this week. Must WIN I say. Anyways, got a couple questions for ya. Besides Julio, who would you pick b/t Britt, D. Moore and M. Wallace for my WR2. I’m leaning towards Wallace but not sure. My next question is if I play Wallace, who amongst D. Moore, Britt and R. Jennings at the flex? I can’t pull the trigger if I want to risk or play it safe this week. It’s a non-PPR. Thanks man

    • With Brown out I like Wallace. I’d lean Jennings.

  • Sup chet got a trade question! Few weeks ago my RB stable consisted of michael bush j-stew k.hunter and some other no names so i traded aj green(whimper) and hernandez for charles and almo….seemed like a goos idea for my team in the long run. Well lets just say the trade hasnt really worked out…..i feel like my team mojo is out if balance and im thinking of pursuing another trade current team setup:
    QB- Brady
    RB- charles, almo, j-stew, hunter, hillis(pure handcuff)
    WR- fitz, smiff, britt, amendola
    TE- miller, rudolph
    K- gould
    Def- hou
    do you think it would be wise to offer almo + amendola for julio jones + beanie? Ppr/bonus league i know i would be a little weak at rb rolling with jc and j-stew/beanie as my.rbs but id be sitting pretty at wr with jones and fitz.. opinion?

    • I’d keep Morris.

  • Hey Chet – trade help please! I’m now 3-6 in a 10 team PPR and one more loss and I’m toast. Looking to upgrade at WR, but I’ve got very few possible trade partners (shallow league). There’s a 4-5 team that I want to pry Austin from (Marshall would likely be impossible) and was thinking of offering Bowe & Heath Miller for Austin. If he doesn’t go for it is there a trade in here that improves me at WR that you think helps both teams? Being that I’m desperate to improve immediately, would Bowe, Miller & LeShoure for Austin & Celek be too much? Thanks.
    My team:
    QB: Romo
    RB: McCoy, TRich (5th rnd keeper), LeShoure, Murray, R.Jennings
    WR: Harvin, Bowe, D.Moore, L.Moore, Britt
    TE: Graham / H.Miller
    His team (he has an open roster spot, is #1 on waivers, and has 2 DEF):
    QB: Roethlisberger / Vick
    RB: Lynch, McFadden, Stewart
    WR: B.Marshall, Austin, Maclin, Boldin, S.Moss
    TE: Celek

  • 8 team PPR league. I currently have brandon Lloyd and Ryan Mathews penciled in as my WR3 and flex respectively. If Percy is active should I start him over one of those two?

    • I’m worried abut him lasting the game.

  • Hey chet,
    Vick ballard tonight or wait and play Hnicks?

    • Nicks

  • 14 Team PPR: looking to try to make a trade, not many happen in this league,. My team: Staff, Mega, Decker, Crabtree, Martin, Andre Brown, Bennett, Janikowski, SF D, Britt, Alex Green, A Smith, K Hunter, Beanie. Only team that will trade: Vick, S Smith, Julio, Amendola, Taiwan, Draughn, Hern, Hartley, Pitt, law firm, Dalton, Jacquizz, Demarco, Cin. Any suggestions?

  • I’ve read that Taiwan Jones is practicing with the 1st team, and seems to be in line for the start if DMac/Goodson are ruled out (which they should be). So I’m a little curious why Reece is ranked so high ahead of Jones? Do you expect Reece to be the lead back, or just sort of that Joique Bell/Pierre Thomas type that might get 5 catches and a short yardage rushing TD?

    I have Pierre Thomas and Taiwan Jones both as options for FLEX, but I thought they’d be ranked a lot closer than they are.

    • I still like Reece by a little, but they are very close.

  • 14 Team PPR: If Locker starts, should I start Britt over Crabtree as my WR3? Still undecided about Luck or Eli this week, I have both Cruz & Wayne.

    • I’d go with Britt and Luck

  • @Doc: PPR league, who do you like better, Dez @ Phi or Amendola @ SF? Thanks.

    • Gonna go with Dez. Tough call in PPR

  • Hey Chet.

    Im in a 12 team non ppr league starting 2 rb/3 wr that is a 2 player keeper league and I am at a crossroads of what to do.
    I am 6-3 and getting a ton of offers for Doug Martin and Trich for out of luck teams looking for Keepers.

    My team is
    Qb: Rodgers
    RB: Ray Rice, Trich, Doug Martin, BJE
    WR: Larry Fitz, Percy Harvin, Brian Hartline, Josh Gordon, Kendall Wright
    TE: Rudolph, Celek

    1. Where do you rank Trent Richardson and Doug Martin in terms of Draft Position next year?

    2. An owner who is 1-7 is offering Gronkowski/Wallace/R Bush for Trich and junk. Do I make this trade in an attempt to win this year? Do I counter the trade and try to get Gronkowski/D Moore for Doug Martin? Or do I decline?

    3. Should I be trying to hard to trade an RB? Or happy with my current standing and depth.


  • Also, offered Nicks-Alf for Cobb-Leshoure. Pull the trigger?

  • Marcel Reece or T.Y. Hilton at flex this week? Non-PPR, bonuses to Raiders RB’s who don’t suffer high ankle sprains.

    • Hah, gonna lean Reece

  • 12 Team PPR – Cobb for Spiller straight up?

    • Very tough. I like both a ton. In PPR I probably would want Cobb.

      • Thanks, I have JC and R. Bush as my RBs, and Megatron, Julio, Decker and Cobb as WR. considering trading a WR for RB, since I agonize over which 3 WR to start (one is a flex).

  • Standard PPR League E Sanders vs. KC, TY Hilton @ JAC, Dez Bryant @ PHI or AJ @ CHI Thanks!

    • I’d lean Johnson

  • .5PPR Need 1 for RB AND 1 for Flex from these 4:
    Leshoure, F Jones, T Young, T Hilton

    • LeShoure and Young

  • Was offered Colston and McGahee for Foster and Hernandez. My WRs are Bryant, Lloyd, D. Moore and T. Smith. Other RB is Ridley, Olsen my TE2. Does the upgrade to Colston make this trade worth it? DEN has a pretty soft RB SoS the rest of the way… Thx!

    • Follow-up: Would a Foster/Lloyd for Lynch/Wayne trade make sense as a RB downgrade/WR upgrade?

      • not enough for me

  • Better D this week: Vikings or Cowboys?

    • Boys

  • Start 2 RB/2 WR/Flex in no PPR. My RBs are Martin, T-Rich, Murray, Felix Jones, R. Jennings, & Don Brown. Should I try to package, say, T-Rich/Murray/Felix for an upgrade or keep my depth? WRs are Cruz, Wayne, Bowe, & Cobb.

  • Crabtree or Vereen?

    • Crabs

  • I have to choose a FLEX: Ryan Mathews – Rashad Jennings – Jonathan Stewart – Ryan Broyles – TY Hilton. Any help? Thank you!

    • Mathews for me

  • As a Michael Vick and Vick Ballard owner, how quickly should I accept this Cam Newton for Vick Ballard trade offer I just got?

    • quickly

  • No PPR: Flex Bowe, Felix Jones, or Witten?

    • Witten

  • 12 Team PPR: I need a bye week fill in defense: NYJ vs. Sea, Det vs. Min or Min vs. Det, Dal vs. Phi, Ind vs. Jac?

    • I’d lean Dallas

  • Crabtree or Ivory for flex?

    • If I knew Ivory would get enough looks I’d say him, but he’s risky. I’d probably lean Crabs.

  • torrey smith or ballard? ppr

    • Tough call. If Brown is out I’d lean Ballard.

  • I have injury problems:

    RB Lynch
    RB DMC
    RB Goodson
    RB Turbin
    RB Leshoure
    WR Cruz
    WR Harvin
    WR Torrey Smith
    WR Malcolm Floyd
    WR DHB

    Need to start 2RB, 2WR and 1 WR/RB Flex. I’m thinking Lynch, Leshoure, Cruz, Smith and Floyd. But, I could pick up: Pierre Thomas, Ivory, Ingram, Marcel Reece, Taiwan Jones or Felix Jones. If I do pick one up, I would have to drop one of the above. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    • Or Mendenhall . . . .

    • That’s how I’d roll too

  • Got offered Alf & T. Smith for Cruz & Ballard. Should I accept?

    • It’s close. I like Cruz a lot. If it’s standard scoring I probably would, if PPR no.

  • Chet, we have a trade deadline in our league of 11/16. 10-team, 1pt PPR. Take a look at my team and give me wisdom my friend. Team is shown as typical lineup when all are health and no byes. Thank you so much!
    QB: Vick
    RB: McFadden
    RB: Martin
    WR: Harvin
    WR: Maclin
    TE: Gates
    W/R/T: ALF
    W/R/T: Ridley
    W/R/T: Britt
    Bench: J-Stew, Dwyer, Hunter, Andre Brown, Royster, Goodson, Reece, Garcon, Sanders
    I stream Defenses and we don’t have kickers

    • Well, it looks ok. Ridley has a couple of really nice games and then tough ones in the fantasy playoffs. You might want to sell high on him after this Buffalo game. Vick has been treading water, but I could see upgrading if possible.

  • I was just offered this trade Aaron rodgers, martellus bennet, and jonathan stewart for cj spiller andrew luck, and kyle rudolph. If DMC didnt just get hurt I wouldnt even have to ask. Heres my team, what do you think?
    qb; Luck/romo
    rb: forte
    rb2: Mcfadden
    wr: Cruz
    wr: J. Jones
    te: Aaron Hernandez
    flex: Cobb
    Bench: Spiller, T. Smith, m. Bush, r. jennings

    • I’d much prefer Spiller to JStew right now. Rodgers is a big upgrade if you can somehow keep Spiller.

      • Thanks. What about giving Luck and Julio jones or Cruz instead since I have more depth there

  • I see you have Dwayne Allen ahead of Myers this week. If I can only keep one of those two plus Rudolph, which 2 would you keep?

    Also, would you rather have Marcel Reese, Ryan Broyles or Emmanual Sanders for the next 2 weeks? (need bye week fill in, non-PPR)


    • I moved Myers up. I’d keep Myers. I’d probably roll with Reece for upside.

  • I have Barack Obama as my P. Him or Mitt Romney ROS? PPV format.

    • Barry
