  • PPR need 2:

    Nicks, Blackmon, Hartline, Broyles (and I’m starting Calvin).


  • Also, 12 Team PPR, 9-3: Brees, Freeman, Bryant, Cruz, Garcon, DX, James Jones, Martin, Beanie, JStew, LaMichael James (just dropped Sanu for him), Graham, Rudolph. Someone just dropped Brandon Lloyd, would you pick him up & who would you drop, thinking James Jones.

    • agreed

      • Thanks Chet. 1 more question, 14 Team PPR: Right now I have Mega, Garcon & DX starting, no flex in this league. Would you start Steve Smith, Crabtree or Britt over DX or Garcon?

      • I’d stick with DX/Garcon

  • 10 Team PPR: Start Vernon or Gates? Also would you start VJax over Wayne, Marshall, Dez or Cruz?

    • Tough call. I’m going to lean Vernon and sit VJax.

  • Fitzgerald or Miles Austin .5 PPR?

    • Austin

  • Bryce Brown or Ryan Mathews .5 PPR?
    Aaron Hernandez or Witten .5 PPR?

    • I’m going with Hernandez and Brown.

  • Hey Chet-
    Need to pick one of these for Flex, non-ppr::

    Prefer to swing for fences, big points total today more important than win, playoff spot locked

    • I’m leaning Moreno.

  • In your rankings you’re recommending SEA over NE, I’m interested in the logic here. I would have thought NE hands down since playing Miami and SEA is playing Chicago. Your advice is greatly appreciated.

    • It’s close. I like how henne has been playing and cutler is good for some picks but I’d go with your gut there.

  • Stafford or rg3?

    • Toss up for sure. I like both a lot. Leaning rg3 with Garçon back.

  • I need 2 in a standard league from Victor Cruz, Reggie Wayne and Damaryius Thomas. Hoping for the playoffs.

    • Nice choices. I love DT this week and Cruz has more TD potential than Wayne.

  • Need 2 out of 4 for a wr spot and a flex spot
    Im most likely leaning fitz and reece….ppr/bonus league

  • Pick two. Floyd, Vereen, Dmc, Wilson? .5 ppr

    • Floyd and Wilson

      • Why do you think Wilson over Vereen? Snap count?

      • That’s a toss up for sure. The dolphins run d worries me but Vereen is a little safer.

  • 0.5 PPR. 3 point bonuses at 85 yards receiving and 100 yards rushing; 6 point bonuses at 135 yards receiving and 150 yards rushing. 35 return yards per point. I can play 3 of these guys. Who are you playing:

    Bruce Brown

    Have Brown, LeShoure, and Cobb in now.

    • Brown, Cobb and Forte for me

      • You think Forte over LeShoure? I know neither is real trustworthy, but Forte has been an RB4 at best lately. Plus he’s got a bum wheel and up against a solid defense. Just wondering more on your opinion of him. And yes, I’m a diehard Bears fan, which is kinda why I trust him less than some.

      • I could see going leshoure. The way the Seahawks run d has been playing by giving up over 6 yards a carry over the last 5 weeks has me intrigued.

  • Denario over DMC, Reece, beanie, mike bush, or Vick Ballard? That’s if dmc plays..

    • I like Beanie a little more in non-PPR

  • How would you rank RB handcuffs at this point?

  • 1 pt PPR – pick 1 – ridley, murray, moreno, reese

    1/2 pt PPR – pick 2 – jennings, forte, garcon, reese

    thanks man

    • thats rashad jennings above

    • Ridley and Forte

  • Maclin or Britt

  • Need 3: Charles, Ridley, Bryce, Mathews, Leshoure, Reece
    Need 1: DX, Broyles
    (0.5 PPR)

  • Cardinals, Steelers or Bengals DST? Thanks!

  • 10 tean PPR 1pt per reception.
    Have Decker and D Thomas @ wr1/2
    T-Rich at RB1
    LeShoure or Reece at RB2
    Shorts/Garcon or the non starting RB for flex?

    • I’d lean Garcon and LeShoure if DMC plays. If he doesn’t I go Reece/Leshoure

  • Hey Chet. Hope all is well. Who do u like best @ flex in PPR? LeShoure, Broyles, Moreno or Murray? Could u rank ’em? Thx much :)

    • Moreno, Murray, Broyles, LeShoure, but those are all very close.

  • PPR, Flex: DX, Garcon, Moreno, or Beanie?
    Starting Nicks/Decker & DMartin/Ridley.
    Opponent has RGIII.

    • I’m leaning Moreno

  • deangelo or beanie ppr? flex start

    • I’d lean Beanie, but it’s close.

  • Reece, Beanie, Moreno or DX? Need 1 RB and a flex.

    • Moreno and Beanie

  • Pettigrew or Dallas Clark? Thanks!

    • PPR Pettigrew, non Clark

  • Pick 2: R Bush, Hernandez or O Daniels ppr lg?

    • Bush, Hernandez

  • Kaepernick or griffin?nyg did a great job last week againdt green bay and st louis sucks…

    • I gotta go with RG3.

  • I need a wr and a flex, 10 team standard league: Steve smith, broyles, Michael Crabtree, and Murray. For the play offs. Thanks

    • Smith and Murray

  • One burning lineup question: TY Hilton or Greg Jennings this week? Thx Chet.

    • Tough one. I think I’m going to lean Jennings. Hilton is still the #3 target.

      • I hear u. Thanks again.

  • Hey Chet, love your Targets column at Rotoworld, thanks for answering these questions. Should I start Bleu Cheese or Ranch on these Buffalo wings? I think Bleu Cheese has higher upside but the quality is inconsistent, whereas with Ranch I pretty much know what I’m getting. Please answer soon as my wings will get cold and congeal if I don’t make a decision soon. Thanks!

    • Ranch is a lock.

  • Need a flex for .5 ppr BJGE, Blackmon, Dwyer also could throw Jeri finley in there asa hailmary. Thoughts ?

    • I’d probably lean BJGE just because of goal line looks.

  • You skipped my question earlier but really would appreciate your advice on this one:

    In PPR 0.5, I have been offered VJax+Ridley+Vernon Davis for TRich+Witten. My other RB is McCoy/Bryce Brown. Should I do it?

    • I’d rather have TRich for the homestretch than Ridley

  • Non-PPR. How safe to feel Moreno > Reece if DMC is out?

    • Unless we know early on that DMC is out, I’d have to go with Moreno.

    • Whoops, since they play at the same time you’ll know. If DMC is out I’d go Reece over Moreno.

  • ThanQ

  • What up Machete. Q: roll with Fitz at my 2nd qb spot, or drop him for and start Henne, Locker, or Wislon(Have Ben benched)? Also, start 1 wr:Fitz, Miles, Torrey, Shorts. Thanx!

    • I’d roll with henne and shorts

      • Appreciate it!

  • Standard league, 1 spot:
    DX, Garçon, Beanie, Moreno
    Thank u

    • Moreno

  • Playoffs starting next week. Locker filling in for Vick for now. Good idea to drop Vick and pick up r. Wilson?

    • I could see dropping Vick, but Wilson’s matchups are tough.

  • Riding staffords hot hand and playing him over rg3 based on the giants d line containing him some. I know it’s not a huge gamble but could hurt my playoff seeding.

  • Peyton or RGIII?

    • RGIII has a bit more upside, but I like Manning’s matchup enough to roll with him.

      • Thanks!

  • In PPR 0.5, I have been offered VJax+Ridley+Vernon Davis for TRich+Witten. My other RB is McCoy/Bryce Brown. Should I do it?

  • Leshoure at 1pm or wait and see if Dmc out and play Reece at 4:30, if Dmc is active play Murray on SNF?
    Pick 1 plz.

    • I like your plan.

  • who is better ROS: Vernon Davis or Witten?

    • I think you skipped me Chet…

    • I like Witten

  • Chet, do you like Broyles or Bowe ROS in PPR? If the storm materializes in OAK I’ll be sitting DMoore for whoever I roster.

    • Broyles

  • How come you have Locker so low? With top corner out and hou D giving up massive yards. Lost Big Ben and Vick picked up Henne I always go w your rankings just wanted an explanation cause I kinda like Locker.

    • With Joseph officially out I’m moving him up. He has a lot of upside, but his inconsistency is in full force.

      • Need upside Brees sucking helps plus he has C Shorts as his WR3 if that matters. Henne or locker no pressure only win and I’m in. Also would you play S Jax or R. Jennings over Forte in PPR? Thanks Chet rough season got the injury bug this year.

      • I really think Forte is the upside play unfortunately. SJax had to move mountains to have that good game last time against the 49ers. Jennings should be in a rotation and has a low ceiling already.

  • 1 ppr: Got D. Moore in flex but terrified of Joe Haden. Is Rudolph or Knowshon enough to bench him?

    • I’d give Knowshon a shot. Should see plenty of opportunities.

  • ive got a spot on my bench.. do i use it to handcuff demaryius w/ stokely, or leshoure with joique? 1/2ppr. thanks.

    • I’d lean RB

  • 12 Team PPR: 9-3, Brees, Freeman, Cruz, Dez, Garcon, DX, James Jones, Sanu, Martin, JStew, Beanie, Graham, Randolph. Looking to drop Sanu for a deep RB, any thoughts on LaMichael James if he backs up Gore? My waiver options: Amendola, D Rich, Jacoby Jones, McCluster, Peerman……

    • I like his upside. I’d rather own Amendola though.

      • Amendola was taken off waivers, so I’m thinking about rbs again….Lamichael James, Bernard Pierce, Woodie, Ingram, D Rich, Peerman or Ivory (slim pickens!)?

      • I’d probably lean James for upside.

      • Or Brendan Jacobs…..

      • What about Ben Tate, he’s on waivers right now/

  • Need 2: Moreno, Reece, Garcon, Britt. Thanks!

    • Standard scoring

    • Moreno and Garcon. There is a chance DMC doesn’t go, if not I’d lean Reece over Garcon.

  • 1/2ppr 1wr, 1 flex.. DX, Shorts, Demarco, Malcom Floyd.. leaning dx/ shorts.. thanks

    • Tough call. I can see going that way with Murray being iffy. If you need a higher ceiling I’d roll with Murray over DX.

  • “Bruce” Brown or Hernandez? 1PPR

    • I’m going with old Bruce
