  • I am a Murray & Charles owner & I must drop a player this week. Which player best to drop: Felix, David Wilson, Hillis or Hillman?

  • In a .5 for ppr should I trade Lloyd, luck, walsh, woodhead for welker and dougie mart…12 teams my starting lineup is currently qb rivers wr green wr wayne rb mccoy rb charles te graham flex mcgahee k hanson d packers

  • Deep question…..14 team 2 QB league…which 2 QBs do you think has the best chance of having value ROS. Kaepernick, Foles, Tebow, Matt Flynn (Rodgers and Palmer are my starters, but need a speculative backup and can use 2 roster spots….need a guy for Rodgers bye week in week 10)

  • Do I trade away Arian/Tate for Matthews/AJ Green. Can’t see through the Norv colored fog to decide if Matthews is going to realize his potential and end the year as a top back. Thoughts?

    • Dang. Only if you have nobody in Greens potential spot.

  • Hi Chet. You think its a mistake to buy low on Andre Johnson? I’m in a 1pt PPR redraft & i need a roster spot. I have HNicks, Lloyd, Austin, Stevie & Cobb. Was thinking of offering Austin & Cobb or Austin & Stevie at the most. Curious what you think?

    • I’m ok with buying low on him. Wouldn’t do Austin and Stevie though.

  • I need a wr between desean J, james jones or kenny britt?


  • Also, Morris or Ridley? Both have tough matchups this week.

    • I trust Morris a little more (iss)

    • Alrighty thanks man. I appreciate it.

  • Tough spot in my flex this week as I have some byes. Do I start Leshoure or Brandon Gibson? I also could pick up Scott Chandler from waivers.This is a dynasty keeper PPR League. Thanks in advance.

    • I’d lean LeShoure

  • Chet,
    Hey man…..It’s good to see that you are doing well. I am in a bit of a dilemma….I need a starting rb out of Chris Johnson, william powell, vick ballard and blount. Any advice?


    • I’m leaning Powell. It’s risky, but I like his matchup.

    • I’m starting Powell.

  • would you advise trading Brandon Lloyd to get Antonio Brown or Mike Wallace?

    • Yes

  • Do i trade Ridley and Hakeem Nicks for MJD???

    • I wouldn’t.

  • Hey Chet, I have Brent Celek in PPR redraft and he isn’t doing me any favors. I have the choice to add Owen Daniels off waivers and replace Celek or add Alex Green as my RB4 ( my other RBs are Charles, Murray, Leshoure, Hillis, DWilson, & Hillman). Do you think Daniels or Green adds more value??

    • Sorry i missed this. I’d want Daniels and Green, but it looks like you need Daniels more.

  • Trade
    I got offered Bradshaw and Pettigrew for Lynch and Dennis Pitta

    In terms of RBS, I also have darren sproles and Shonn greene. I also am holding onto jermaine gresham, though I would likely drop him if i traded for pettigrew.

    What do you think?

    • I would not make that trade.

  • Cool thanks bud

  • Malcolm Floyd or cj2k

  • Can you pls rank ROY: Joique Bell, Kevin Smith, W. Powell, Ronnie Hillman, V. Ballard?


  • Hi! Two questions for you. Cam Newton or Matt Schaub? Greg Little or Nate Washington? Appreciate it!

    • Cam and Washington

  • What are your thoughts for RB2 in deep PPR dynasty league for Week 5 … Jacquizz Rodgers or Michael Bush?

    • Tough call, but I’m leaning Rodgers

  • Floyd or cj2k

  • Chet, 10-team, 1pt PPR. I’ve been offered Ridley and Bolden for Garcon and Draughn. Right now I have:
    Vick, Fitzpatrick
    McFadden, Morris, Martin, Bradshaw, Andre Brown, D. Richardson, Hunter, Draughn
    Harvin, Garcon, Maclin, Britt, LaFell, Hixon

    What do you think?

  • start Battle, JStew or Hankerson? non ppr

    trade Rudolph and JStew for Moeki and Garcon? non ppr and have Witten on bye so TE not good this week


    • Leaning Battle. I wouldn’t make that trade.

  • Can you pls rank these RBs (ROY): Hillman, D. Wilson, D.Thomas, L.Miller, B Pierce, V. Ballard, W Powell, K. Smith, J. Bell? Any must adds?

    Titus Young and Kendall wright are also available. Is either WR a must add?

    • If Britt can’t get healthy, Wright should hold some value. Powell, Hillman, Ballard, Thomas, Miller, Wilson

    • Thanks, as I realize that was a long list.

      So that I am clear, you like Powell (AZ) best of that group ROY? Also, where did you rank Kevin Smith and Joique Bell in that list?

      Thanks in advance.

  • In a .5 for PPR Lloyd or Mcgahee

    • McGahee

  • Need to start 2. Hankerson, F Davis, Hawkins
    Do I play both Redskins?

    • I would give Hawkins a shot with Hankerson.

  • OK, in a ppr league, pick 3: Alfred Morris, Donald Brown, Benson, McGahee, Forte.

    • Sit D. Brown and Benson

  • thanks,chet !!!

  • ok,ppr pick between bennett and pitta,i got hixon and james jones off of ww,i can start 2 te”s and 2 wr’s or 1 t/e and 3 wr’s
    julio jones is in for sure but would you start james.jones and hixon over the 2nd t/e ???

    • Yeah, I’d go Jones, Jones, Hixon, Bennett

  • Thanks a bunch, Chet.

  • need 2 PPR… Simpson,Avery,Maclin,Bess

    • Maclin and Avery

    • I’d do that if you can get Benson instead of Bush.

  • What do you think about relying on Andrew Luck as my starting QB going forward if it means I could maybe get Julio Jones in a trade?

    The package I’m thinking about offering to a guy whose QBs are Jay Cutler and Weeden is as follows: he gets Philip Rivers, Fred Jackson, Kenny Britt & I get Jay Cutler, Julio Jones, and Michael Bush.

    Do you think I have a chance? Here’s a picture of our teams… please take a look and let me know if I can modify the trade offer any or if I should go ahead and offer it: http://imgur.com/CPpn9

  • .5PPR need one WR out of Avery, Simpson, Wright, and Rice? Thank you!

    • Leaning Avery

  • I’m all ready starting Fred Jackson tomorrow, who should I use in my flex? CJ Spiller, Pierre Garçon, or Kendall Hunter?

    • -Garcon

  • PPR-Finley, Pitta, Rudolph

    • Close, but I’m leaning Rudolph in that matchup

  • Chet, do you roster backup RB’s in case of injury or do you roster players that can help you right now and make a mad dash for the backup when the starter goes down?

    • It really depends. I try to keep guys who I have a very good feeling will be able to contribute if the starter goes down, even if I don’t own the starter. I don’t handcuff just for the sake of hancuffing.

  • Chet, do you ever target medium talents with favorable schedules or do you think that’s a waste effort? For example, I have my eye on Donald Brown but I don’t know what is reasonable to offer for him and not net a loss. Thoughts?

    • It would have to be for a song. I thin Ballard will start taking away more looks as the season goes on.

  • In a tough spot on RB this week.. Ingram or b. Powell? Or can you think of any other sleepers for this week

    • I’d probably lean Ingram and hope he gets in the end zone

  • Give Alf, Dez, Lloyd, get D.Mart, Julio, Harvin? thoughts…thanks for the advice, appreciated

    • Interesting. It’s close, but I’d probably do it. If it’s PPR I’d really do it.

  • which 3 should I start Domenik Hixon, Antonio Brow,Anquan Boldin or Steve Johnson?

  • List your top handcuffs for the ROS, 1-pt PPR league. Thank you!

    • Hunter, Rodgers, A, Brown, P. Thomas

  • Rodgers, Garcon, Harvin, Gore, MJD, Graham, McGahee…

    This is my starting lineup. Bench is Spiller, F. Davis, Ogletree, B. Bolden, N. Washington, Heyward-Bey

    Given what I have, what do you think needs strengthening and any ideas on packages that might get it done? Thanks. Been rolling with your suggestions over all the other experts.

    • I think I’d sell high on Gore after what should be a good game this week and try to grab a top WR.

  • ok which 3 should I start Domenik Hixon, Antonio Brow,Anquan Boldin or Steve Johnson?

    • Hixon, Brown, Johnson

  • 10-team, 1pt PPR. I need 1 flex play out of the following: Andre Brown, Kendall Hunter, Kenny Britt, Brandon LaFell, or Shaun Draughn. Thank you!

    • Tough call. I’m leaning Hunter since Britt looks to be out.

  • @dectwitt: @Chet_G hey Chet, in PPR do u prefer Celek or Pitta overall? Or are they pretty much equal? I’ve Celek but think I can get Pitta if I want.

    • It’s close, but I like that Pitta is getting so many targets. I’d lean Pitta if I had to choose.

  • Jackie Battle/Darren Sproles/ Michael Turner
    Antonio brown, Steve smith, hartline,garcon pick 2

    • Sproles, Turner, Brown, Smith

  • which 2 do I start Fred Jackson, Michael Bush,C.J. Spiller or Brandon Bolden!

    • Bush, Spiller

  • Who has higher value for the remainder of the season: Mikel Leshoure or Rashard Mendenhall?

    • Not a huge fan of either, but I’d lean LeShoure.

  • I have Hernandez. If I can get Decker for Finley should I?

    • I would.

  • Trade Finley for d. Moore? Or ot cam I get Decker? Non ppr thanks!

    • Unless you have a top TE backup I’d probably lean no. Not sure what your second part is.

  • Welker ot MArtin ROS, non ppr? redraft

    • I love Martin so personally I’d lean his way, but Welker is safer.

  • Mathews or Steve Smith in FLEX ?
    Pitta or Olsen ?

    • Mathews is a little scary as far as playing time, but I have to lean his way. I like Olsen.

  • Should I start Green-Ellis or Andre Brown?

    • Green-Ellis

  • Asking after the fact, but I traded Maclin and Gates for Britt and Hernandez, I have Graham already and I have AJ Green, Welker and Lloyd. It’s a fully dynasty keeper non ppr and we only start 2 WRs. Did I make a mistake?

    • I think you are ok. It’s a fair trade as long as Britt and Hernandez come back healthy.

  • Need 2: Desean, Maclin, Hixon

    • Desean and Hixon

  • Pick one!
    B. Lloyd, Torrey Smith, or CJ2K?


    • It’s close, but I might roll with Smith.

  • I have cam and s smith and am worried about the matchup. Thoughts on sitting smith for britt or k. Wright depending if britt plays. Thanks

    • I’d stick with Smith.

  • Which side wins

    Eli, Leshoure, B. Marshall
    Julio & Vick

    .5 PPR

    • Close, would lean the Eli side if LeShoure fills a gap.

  • For the next few weeks I need an extra receiver to cover for Jennings and Nicks in a 3WR PPR league (Bowe and DMoore are my other WRs).
    Right now I could pick up another receiver if I drop Cutler and don’t back Romo this week. Does any one of the group of Wright, Avery, Cobb, LaFell or Blackmon have a big enough edge that makes it worth giving up a few points this week to have them moving forward or would you just wait and claim whoever is available after whatever happens this weekend?

    • I think you’ll be able to get someone there who could help after this week.

  • Thanks. Same PPR, will you start any of these players over Harvin and Welker?

    Antonio Brown
    Brian Hartline
    Torrey Smith

    • -I wouldn’t

  • Luck or Vick?

    • Vick, but it’s close

  • 10 Team PPR, need to start 3; Charles, Richardson, Mathews, Morris, Brown(Pit), Hartline, Torrey. Thanks

    • In PPR I’d go with the first 3

  • Was offered andre johnson for demaryius thomas. I think aj is elite but his opportunities have dipped…and his balky groin is another issue. Who would u rather have rest of season?

    • I’d lean DT

  • Would you trade away TRich and Steve Smith (the good 1) for Ryan Matthews and Vernon Davis? Ppr td heavy lg.. Stacked at WR and need TE help..

    • I like TRich too much.

  • How good is Seattle’s secondary? Trying to decide between Decker vs NE or Steve Smith vs SEA in PPR. Saw you had Smith ahead in the rankings but you advised someone to play Brown over Smith in another post.

    • Decker has a tough matchup with McCourty. Smith will matchup with Browner, but has a good chance to beat him deep.

  • Need 1 wr 1 flex for 1pt ppr. Avery, Manningham,Cook, Bolden, D.Jones

    • Avery and Cook, but check Cook’s status.

  • Looking to trade Foster for depth in a 14-team keeper. Is Torrie Smith, Leshoure and Doug Martin enough?

    • I’d say no. I’d want someone better than LeShoure.

  • Luck or Dalton this week?

    • -Luck

  • 1 for the flex: Spiller, Hartline, Floyd?

    • Floyd unless it’s PPR, then I’d lean Hartline.

  • Need a lottery ticket WR to start in place of Fred Jackson. Waiver wire choices are guys like Nate Washington, Jeremy Kerley, Kendall Wright, Manningham, Sid Rice, TY Hilton or Jerome Simpson. Do you like any of these guys over FJax, or can you think of another WR? Thanks.

    • If you are thinking lottery, I’d lean Simpson.

  • I have Gore, MJD, and McGahee for RB’s. Also have Spiller..any trade value or am I better off holding on to him?

    • I’d hold unless someone wants to overpay.

  • .5PPR league. Can stat two of the following: Spiller, Kendall Hunter, Hankerson or Britt?


    • Looks like Britt is out, so I’d lean Spiller and Hankerson

  • Who you like better ROS,PPR league Mendenhall or Leshoure

    • LeShoure

  • Bye weeks, deep league. Added Reuben Randle when I heard of Barden’s concussion. Roll with him @ WR3, or add someone like Meachem? Josh Gordon/TY Hilton were my backup plan, and both were scooped.

    • I might lean Meachem just for the prodigal son aspect.

  • ppr trade

    i get nicks

    i give wayne

    • I’d do that. It’s a little risky with Nicks hurting, but he should come out of it ok.

  • Deep league who better play this week donnie avery kendall wright gregg little

    • Leaning Wright

    • Changed my mind. Leaning Avery now.

  • Hi Chet,

    In a 0.5 pt PPR league, who would you put in at flex:
    – D. Avery (vGB)
    – D. Brown (vGB)
    – Deangelo (vSea)


    • -Avery

  • bye week RB conundrum: k. hunter or b powell?

    • Not liking either much, but Hunter

  • Hey Chet, I’m looking to upgrade at QB and was offered this:

    I give: Romo, Fitzgerald
    I get: Stafford, Antonio Brown

    I also have Marshall, Lloyd, Garcon and Britt at WR.
    Good deal or do I wait for Romo to turn it around?
    Should I push for Colston instead of Brown?

    • Looks good

  • Kyle Rudolph or Dennis Pitta??? Rudolph has the matchup but Pitta has seen more targets.

    • It’s very close. Pitta may be safer, but I like Rudolph’s upside.

  • Hi Chet,

    Need some trade advice! Here’s my QB scoring settings: 1pt 25PaYd, 6pt Pa/Ru TD, 300PaY (+4pt), 400PaY (+5pt), 40+ PaTD (+2), 50+ PaTD (+3), Sacks -1.

    Just got offered:
    I get: Stafford + Crabtree
    I give: Stevie J + Mendenhall

    My 3-1 team:
    Qb: Vick, Freeman
    RB: Shady, McFadden, Mathews, Mendy, Battle
    WR: Julio, Welker, Maclin, Stevie
    TE: F. Davis, Celek

    His 0-4 team:
    QB: rg3, stafford
    RB: Gore, JCharles, Bradshaw, Draughn
    WR: Djax, Crabtree, Hawkins, LaFell
    TE: V. davis, b Myers

    Do I do this trade? Appreciate all your advice… sorry for the long post!

    • –I’d do that

  • Chet –

    Pick one to start please: Sydney Rice, Hankerson, or Jon Baldwin.


    • Hank

  • Decker or Ridley for flex? I am not sure how many touches will Ridley get… Decker may be the beneficiary of the shootout…

    • I like Ridley

  • Pitta was dropped. R Williams plays on the cardinals. Pick up pitta with him? I have McCoy, Mjd, r Mathews, leshoure and m bush.

    • If you need the TE, yeah.

  • If Hernandez ends up playing would you start Brandon Marshall over B Lloyd? Already starting D. Thomas at one WR spot.


    • Yeah, I would.

  • Who are good waiver QBs to pick up for Ryan’s bye on week 7? Thinking about Weeden vs IND, Bradford vs GB, or Sanchez vs NE.

    • Is Freeman rostered? I’d probably lean Weeden

  • PPR trade 12 team

    i get nicks

    i give wayne you like?

    • Sounds good.

  • in ppr would you trade spiller and lloyd/desean for mjd. only start 2 wr and have very good depth with julio green lloyd desean.

    • Also one more, im in a deep hole in my 14 team league with martin on bye. better rb option draughn, wilson or goodson.

    • I’d probably do that with DJax

    • Draughn

  • rank em ros ppr – doug martin, alfred morris, benson

    • Morris, Martin, Benson

  • Whats your feelings on these two trades:
    Stevie Johnson for Alfred Morris and
    Jimmy Graham + T.Y Hilton for Trent Richardson and Owen Daniels.
    Also, your feelings on Vick vs Luck this week?
    Thanks in Advance!

    • I like the trades. Vick vs. Luck is close. I’d lean Vick.

  • Hey Chet, got a desperate RB situation due to bye week: Please pick 2 out of: CJ Spiller, CJ2K and B. Bolden.

    • Spiller, CJ

  • When Britt finally comes back, does Wright get to stay on the field as WR2 or will he get his teams WR3 snap count?

    • He had quite a few drops last week. Needs to have a good game this week.

  • Which two for Flex PPR

    Jaquizz,Cobb,Blackmon,Tate,Kendall hunter or Bolden

    • Quizz and Cobb

  • ROS ppr trade
    i get


    i give


    • I’d keep Forte

  • Need wr, qb help, got hasselbeck after I dropped Locker, and NO qbs left in free agency. Offer my Murray(I have charles and rice) fr HER flacco and andre johnson? Am I giving up too much?

    • No, that would be fair.

  • Scrolled through and noticed you like KWright over DAvery for 0.5 PPR ROS. Is this how you’d rank them in full PPR for the next few weeks too?

    • I do, but if Britt comes back it is close.

  • I’m set at rb and need a wr. Trade Fred Jackson for miles Austin? Thanks!

    • That’s fair.

  • get DMC, Bowe, J Maclin, Andre Brown give MJD, Reggie Wayne? nonppr thoughts on this potential trade?

    • I’d do that.

  • After 2 weeks of trying to make a trade 12 team 1pt ppr…ive finally come to agreement on a trade how does this fair?

    AJ Green + Hernandez for Charles + Morris?

    My team pre trade
    QB- Brady
    WR- Fitz, Green, S.Smith(car), Britt
    RB -J-Stew, M.Bush, K.Hunter, B.Powell, K.Smith
    TE- Rudolph, Hernandez
    His Team pre trade
    QB- Vick
    WR- D-Jax, Austin, L.Moore, Lafell
    RB – Charles, Matthews, leshoure, Almo, R. Williams
    TE – Gresham

    how do you feel about this trade?

    • Yeah, I like that a lot for you.

    • forgot its actually charles + hillis + morris for Green + Hernandez

  • Vick or Cutler? I like Cutler vs. Jags…

    • I like Vick, but go with your gut.

  • After trading D Thomas, B Marshall and Chris Johnson for Arian Foster, my WR starters would be Reggie Wayne and Antonio Brown. My non starters/potential flex plays at the moment (if the trade is accepted) would be Brandon LaFell, Ben Tate, Andrew Hawkins, Jerome Simpson, Jackie Battle, and Heath Miller.

    Would you make this trade to try and get Foster?

    • Yeah I would

  • Hey Chet – Pick two please (.5 PPR) – Reggie Bush, Welker, Colston and Bowe.


    • Can I pick all 4!? Welker/Colston

  • Would you trade Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, and Chris Johnson to get Arian Foster? No ppr

    • Wow, I think that depends on who your WR starters would be afterward.

  • In league where we start 3 rb got both demarco n doug martin out this week still got sjax n ryan williams who the better lotery ticket this week draughn ingram hillman lamar miller turbin for last spot thanks again

    • Ingram for TD potential.

  • would you start s jax tonite or BGE sunday in PPR ?
    Love the site btw !

    • Probably BGE. Thanks.

  • 3 “Q’s” for 3 Leagues Please ALL PPR
    1) Hixon or James Jones
    2) Need 1 From Hixon, Garcon or thinking Avery if Indy having to play from behind
    3) Need 2 from Steve Smith, Wayne and Antonio Brown. (concerned w/Smith after Seattle shut down some big WR’s)
    Thanx & Good Luck in OUR Freakos match this Week :)

    • Hixon, Hixon, Wayne, Brown

  • Thoughts on stafford? I am thinking about offering romo and leshoure for him. Do it? The owner is down on him.

    Also, I need to dump one of the following: Hawkins, Simpson, or Heyward-bay. Thoughts?

    • I would do that. I’d dump Hawk.

  • What is the FMV on RGIII (all TDs 6 pts)? Top 5 receiver/rb?

    • Top 5 WR, Top 10 RB if they really need a QB.

  • Horrible bye week blues: b Powell, b pierce or mccluster in flex for std league. Thx!

    • Tough. I’d lean Powell.

  • Pitta (@KC) or D. Hixon (CLE) at flex, non-PPR?

    • -Hixon

  • Rudolph or Hixon in the flex?
    Much thanks!

    • Hixon

  • Thanx! One more Q: need to start 2: bradshaw, s jax, f jax, maclin. And at qb, start schaub over fitzpatrick, right?

    • Bradshaw, Maclin, Schaub

  • Pick two M Wallace, T Smith, D Bowe or D Amendola. It’s a PPR league. Thanks.

    • Wallace, Smith

  • Morris and Pierre Thomas / Brandon Jacobs for pure vulturability?

    • I’d lean PT, but go with your gut there.

  • Would you make the following trade?
    Trade: Gronkowski, A Hawkins
    Get: J Nelson, A Luck, H Miller

    • Really depends on your needs, but I could see making that trade.

  • Thanks for answering the trade question above. Would you move McFadden and Amendola for Forte and Demaryus Thomas? Same scoring as above: 1 Pt. PPR for WR/TE, no PPR for RB’s. Double TD bonus for scores 50+. Thoughts?

    • I still have faith in DMC, so I wouldn’t.

  • Hey Chet, I am looking at Cobb vs. Avery to pick up ROSUJR (until Jennings returns).
    Though I only watched a half, it looked like Cobb got a pretty good piece of the pie in the 3WR sets on Sunday. I wonder if he has a chance to breakout again now that he is healthy (he wasn’t in CHI) and Jennings is not. I admit Avery is getting more consistent targets, but seems to have a pretty low reception percentage.
    I see you like Avery a lot more than Cobb this week in PPR. Is that about this week only or would you lean his way for the next few weeks too?

    • Cobb’s inconsistency scares me. His upside is higher, but IF Avery continues being the main guy, he’s the one I’d want.

  • Would you start Lafell or K. Wright as your number 3 WR this week?

    There is no flex spot in this league, with Jennings out and Holmes gone for the season I am stretched thin at WR right now.

    • I like Wright

  • trade rg3 murray jennings for rivers mcfadden julio? have vick.

    • Dang, scary, but I could see it working for you.

  • Big Bird or Mitt Romney for my flex? I can’t decide if Romney is for real.

  • I know you already touched on Fred Jackson earlier but here’s my running back situation: DMC, F-Jax, Alf, and Mendy. I asked you about shopping Mendy and Amendola around the other day but as you can see we decided I shouldn’t.

    Should Fred Jackson owners be trying to trade him? I don’t like this split timeshare situation that seems to be on the horizon for him and CJ Spiller. Spiller would have to be injured for me to feel good about starting him, and that’s a difficult thing to rely on.

    Alf has deputized well during F-Jax’s rehab period and I don’t mind relying on him as my RB2 full time. If it’s time to trade Jackson, I’d like to package him with Kenny Britt and get a WR2 or higher… This is maybe a hard question to answer but who would you look for in a trade for F-Jax straight up and who would you look for in a trade for F-Jax and Britt in a twofer?

    Having said all that, since DMC is on a BYE this week, I have to start F-Jax (vs SF) or Mendy (debuting vs PHI). Who do you like more? Your rankings tell me Jackson would be the guy this weekend.

    Thanks Chet… sorry my comments always turn out to be novels…

    • Tough call. If I had any real notion of how Mendy is going to play I’ lean his way, but Jackson just seems safer.

  • Hilton, Avery or Hankerson as WR3 in a 12 team .5 PPR league?

    Morris or Jacquizz as RB2?

    Which one of the leftovers as WR/RB Flex?


    • Avery, Hank, Morris

  • Got offered Steve Johnson and Trent Richardson for Amendola and McFadden. 1 Pt. PPR for WR/TE, no PPR for RB’s. Double TD bonus for scores 50+. Thoughts?

    • I am going to lean no, but very close.

  • Got offered Aaron Hernandez for Alfred Morris. PPR league. My other RBs are Benson, McFadden and Sproules. Rudolph is currently my TE. Waddya think?

    • I’d stick with Morris

  • U think its ok to roll with Freddie Jackson for one week

    • yeah

  • D. Brown, R. Williams, B. Hartline, .5PPR…Gotta start 1 RB, 1 Flex….

    • Hartline and Williams

  • What’s the rationale on Colston ranked so low in a potential shootout after he looked good last week? Also Hixon & Floyd, you don’t like them over Stevie Johnson & Desean?

    • He’s 15th, but the update hasn’t gone through.

  • Hey chet what do you think of trading bowe and cj2k for julio and leshoure/bge.

    • I’d do that

  • I have Fred Jackson this week hate the matchup also have Bradshaw and Andre brown do I drop brown and pick up Pierre Thomas in 12 man league free agents r scarce

    • I think I’d keep Brown. Thomas needs a lot to happen to be consistent and Brown just need bradshaw to go down.

  • Provided Jacobs is healthy and plays who will have a better day him or Hunter ppr?

    • hard to give Jacobs much respect yet. He’ll need to show me first.

  • Sup Chet. Curious who you would start for my WR/rb/flex. I get 3 WR, 2 rb, and a flex that can be either in a non-ppr league. My wrs are roddy, Wallace, garçon, Hawkins, Hixon. My rbs are cj2k, jacquizz, steven Jackson, and ridley.

    • White, Wallace, Garcon, Ridley, CJ2k, Hixon

  • I see you have Fitzpatrick higher then bradford, but im worried about the road game in SF. Can you help me understand the rationale for fitz over bradford ?

    • I still like AZ’s pass D and Fitz has been getting into the endzone. Would really rather not have to go with either, but I’d go with your gut on that one.

  • 1) Who has a better rest-of-season: Pettigrew, Heath, or Rudolph? Standard Scoring.

    2) Week 5, Pick 3: Harvin, Demaryius, Marshall, Bowe.


    • Tough call, but I like Rudolph’s upside more. I’d sit Bowe, but that’s a bit of a coin flip.

  • Better game this week Julio or Roddy ?

    • They both should put up numbers. I’ll say Jones.

  • From your rankings, it looks like your optimism of Moeaki has increased. Is that true and does it apply to this week specifically? Over Mercedes?

    • Both are just blugh. I’d probably lean Lewis.

  • What up Chet. Need wr help, got Jennings hurt, Moore on bye, la fell, hanky, avery in a 3 wr lg. Also a rb/wr flex spot. I have chalres, rice, and de marco. Is offering de marco for matthews and maclin too much for the other guy to give up? He also has roddy, and martin. What combo of players would be good for both of us? Thanx

    • I think it all depends on who he values. Maclin and mathews have both been hurt, maybe he would go for it.

  • I’ve been offered Brees & SJax for Matty Ice, Benson & Hixon. My other RBs are Foster, Charles, & Mathews. My other WRs are Harvin & Wayne. I’m leaning towards taking the deal because Brees would help during a bad Wk 7 of byes where I would lose Ryan, Charles & Mathews. Advice? Thanks Doc!

    • It’s fair and if you feel strongly about the bye, then I could see that being the tie breaker.

  • Erick Decker, Andre Roberts, Reggie Wayne, Antonio Brown, Leonard Hankerson and Randall Cobb, pick 3. (a 4th can be added if they have better potential as flex than any of the RB options below)

    Cedric Benson, Jacquiz Rodgers, Michael Bush, Jamaal Charles, pick 2 (or 3 if the flex is better).

    Kyle Rudolph or Dennis Pitta?

    • Oh yeah, it’s a PPR league btw.

    • Decker, Wayne, Brown, Benson, Charles, Roberts, Rudolph

  • Ppr. Donnie Avery , gates or Rudolph. Pick 2

    • Rudolph, Gates

  • Need a QB with Romo on Bye. Roll with Fitzpatrick, Ponder, Hasselbeck, Tannehill or Kolb? 1Pt per 20 Pass, 1Pt per 10 Rush, TDs 6, INT -1

    • Tanny

  • I have Decker, Amendola, J Jones and A. Brown. Is Amendola worth a start against the cards after how many passing yards they gave up last week?

    • He could be, but I like your other three a bit more.

  • In a vacuum, if I can get A. Rodgers for V-Jax/Garcon, I have to do that – right?

    • Yeah, in a vacuum

  • @Chet: following up on a previous question, what do you think about this trade? PPR league, my Romo or Big Ben plus Alfred Morris for his Brady. Morris is my flex and would replace him with either Dez or Britt if he can ever get healthy. My other rbs are McCoy, Lynch and J-stew.

    • I don’t love it. I’m coming around on Morris with Helu done. Brady is the best player in the deal, but I think the drop off for you at flex will be consistently bad.

  • Have to drop either Hillis, Bilal, or Best.

    • Hillis or Best. I’d go Best right now.

  • I know how high u were or are on DMC, but would u trade him for Julio?

    • I wouldn’t

  • PPR Flex Need 1 – Spiller, Steven Jackson, Britt, or Quizz

    • Ugh, want to say Spiller.

  • Please rank S. Rice, M. Williams, J. Simpson, K. Wright, and D. Avery ROS in a .5PPR league. Are any of them droppable? Thank you!!!

    • Wright, Simpson, Avery, Williams, Rice. Rice is probably droppable right now.

  • Trade in 20 team 0.5 ppr, I’m weak at TE:

    I’d get DMC + V. Davis for Colston + S-Jax

    Would be left with T. Smith, Avery, Eddie Royal at WR but everyone is thin in 1 area

    • Yeah, I’d do that.

  • Ryan Williams or Darren Sproles in a standard league?

    • I think Williams will have a better game than he did last week, but I’d lean Sproles still.

  • PPR- Who ya got? SJax v Zona, Maclin v Pitt, or Ja. Jones v Indy? Thanks in advance!

    • James Jones

  • would you start jerome simpson or dom hixon over m.bennett or pitta as a flex this week

    • I like Hixon there.

  • I’ve been offered Vick, Mathews and Floyd for my Ryan, LeShoure and Little


    • Interesting. It’s worrisome to go from Ryan to Vick, but I believe Mathews turns it around and Floyd is a big upgrade from Little. If you feel slightly comfortable with your backup QB I’d do it.

  • I’d send Alfred Morris for Jordy Nelson? I already own James Jones. Do I do this deal. Morris is my RB #2 right now.

    • It’s a fair deal. Really depends on where you are with running backs.

    • I have Bradshaw, Tate, M.Bush, J.Battle, P.Thomas, K. Hunter. . . No steady starters other than Bradshaw. . . Thanks for all the advice you dish out. Been reading you for a long time.

      • I’d lean no then. Morris is your best RB.

  • Hey Chet – Are you really that much higher on Fred Davis over Kyle Rudolph this week? I have both, need 1 and trust your rankings more than most!

    • I like Rudolph. The PPR rankings were a little messed up.

  • who wins in this trade Garcon/Mathews ……BMarsh/Benson ppr

    • I like the Garcon/Mathews side.

  • What’s your advice on spiller and Fred Jackson? Should I be looking to trade both for one really good starter?

    • Yeah, if you can I would. I like both, but one will have to get injured for the other to shine.

  • Garcon, Amendola or C Benson PPR Pick one, leaning Amendola

    • Agreed

  • Hi Chet! Im a huge fan of your research. You were one of the reasons why i won 2 money leagues last year. Was hoping you can help me. I need a fill in for mcfadden and have K hunter, Jacquizz, Bilal, and Justin Forsett. If i were to look at your rankings, they coincide with my thoughts as well, but does brandon Jacobs hurt K hunters value this week? Also what do you think of Forsett, if Tate is out? I would easily choose Rodgers, but have Gonzo as my TE and hate playing two people from the same team. Thanks in advance!!

    • Thanks. That’s a tough call for sure. I’d lean Quizz. I wouldn’t worry too much about doubling up there.

  • Do you think Meachem could break out against his former team?

    • There’s always hope, but he hasn’t shown me enough to feel comfortable starting him.

  • Trade away LeShoure and Nicks for Julio? Own Percy, Amendola, DMC, Murray. .5 prr w/flex

    • If we knew Nicks was going to be hurting long term I’d say yes no doubt, but we just don’t know. I’m leaning no.

  • ppr olsen cobb wright hankerson?

    • Olsen

    • woodhead or bolden? and your thoughts on devery henderson?

      • It’s hard to know if Bolden we see much work, even after last week’s huge game. I’d lean Woodhead. Henderson has a shot at being productive, but will need a long TD.
