  • I was offered two offers by the same owner.

    1st: My Lynch and Cobb for Charles and Gore.
    2nd: My Lynch for Charles and McGahee
    starting rosters: qb, rb, rb, wr, wr, w/r/t
    My Team
    RG3, Stafford
    Lynch, DMC, Murray, Pierre, D.Rich, Dwyer
    Wallace, Jordy, Cobb, Hartline, Britt
    With the injuries to Murray and DMC I’m really tempted. I also feel it’s the best time to sell Cobb especially since I only start two WR’s. Which one if any should I do?

  • 10 Team PPR: Eli, Cruz, Marshall, Wayne, Rice, AP, DMC, Gates. Bench: Dez, Bell, Vernon, Luck, Amendola, Beanie, Hanson, Hou. In 1st place right now, looking to make 1 more trade to keep my team strong. I was thinking about trying to trade Luck, DMC &/or Amendola. What kind of trade would you recommend I go for?

  • Who should I start, Denarius Moore or Julio Jones?

  • Maclin or Jonathan Stewart in standard scoring?

    • Maclin

  • Would you take this in a ppr

    i get welker & wayne for julio jones & wallace.

    • It’s close, but I don’t think I could do it.

  • Cecil Shorts or Torrey Smith? Non PPR.

    Julio Jones or Maclin, 0.5PPR


    • It’s close, but I’d still lean Smith. And Jones

  • Que onda Chet! Start 2 wr, 1 rb/wr: Fitz, A Johnson, V Jax, Torrey, Maclin, F Jax. Gracias!

  • chet- pick 2, felix jones, isacc redman, andre brown, titus young

    • Young, Redman

  • pick 2 broyles, celek, gresham, alex green…also pick 3 austin cobb maclin antonio brown

    • Broyles, Celek Cobb, Maclin

  • megatron or torrey?

    • Ugh, I’d still lean Megatron if he goes.

  • Flex Randy Cobb, Rashad Jennings, or Felix Jones in non-PPR?

  • My thing is this, If i make the trade and give away murray for decker and Dez, im not upgrading anywhere, im just getting some depth, but i would still start Marshall and Denarius in the WR spots.

    But, if I trade away murray and brown, i upgrade at WR right?

    Given Murray’s health issues, do you think i should still make the trade, and if so, you still think i make the one for decker and dez? please help ASAP! thanks Chet!!

    • Judging from your comments you just want someone to tell you that trade two is the best option, so just do that and shut up. Doubt you’ll regret it.

      • i am a very reluctant trader and just want the best option. my initial gut was trade 2 but most ppl say trade 1 so im just making sure before i pull the trigger doe

  • Yo Chet. I was offered 2 trades for my Murray
    1) Decker and Dez for Murray.
    2) Julio Jones for Murray and Antonio Brown
    Which one should I accept, if either?
    My current RBs are: Rice, Trent, Murray, J-Stew
    My current WRs are: Marshall, Denarius, Antonio Brown, Britt
    Please let me know ASAP!! Thanks.

    • I could see doing the Decker Dez one, but I think you need to keep an RB.

      • i dont trust murray with his health, and i dont think hes very reliable in that offense, but you would take decker and dez over julio? Brown doesnt really matter to me either way bc i wouldnt start him over anyone im about to trade for…thoughts?

  • Where will Michael Vick be getting his points with both Maclin and DeSean out of your top 20 at WR?

    • your mom

    • hah, not really, but through his legs, Celek and McCoy as well.

      • Aw, Chet. Thought you were better than that.

        Doesn’t even make sense! (applies to both of your answers)

      • Hah, I am not better than that!

  • I have J. Dwyer in a PPR 0.5. Been offered M. Ryan and Mendy, for J. Stew and Big Ben? Should I do it?

  • Hmmm, reports are becoming increasingly concerning about megatron’s knee, some reports say he could be limited to 3rd downs. If reports continue like this are you still starting him over lance Moore in ppr league?

  • Yo Chet. I was offered 2 trades for my Murray

    1) Decker and Dez for Murray.

    2) Julio Jones for Murray and Antonio Brown

    Which one should I accept, if either?

    My current RBs are: Rice, Trent, Murray, J-Stew
    My current WRs are: Marshall, Denarius, Antonio Brown, Britt

    Please let me know ASAP!! Thanks.

    • I mean this one! haha.

  • Would you play Nicks and Cruz against Eli or swap Nicks for L Moore?

    • Help me on this one Chet! Im dying here!

  • titus young or pierre thomas in the flex

    • Close. I think PT may be a bit more versatile in a high scoring game.

  • I traded for Ray Rice and now my RBs are Rice, Charles, TRich, MJD, Spiller and R Jennings. My WRs are Julio, Nicks, Lloyd, Maclin and T Smith. To improve at WR, should I make an offer for Calvin(last place team) or other top WR? Or do I leave my team like this and hope for the best? I’m currently in 4th place and top 4 make the playoffs. I don’t need all these RBs but it’s nice to have the depth. Thanks.

  • PPR W/Sproles out need Flex: Titus, Felix or Mike Williams..Also I own Dwyer & Felix .Would u drop Felix for Redman? Thanx

    • I’d go with Titus. I probably wouldn’t drop him for Redman.

  • Why Stewart over Leshoure?
    Start both, or start Nicks/Titus Young over one?

    • I just think Stewart is a better player, but it’s pretty much a toss up there. If it’s PPR I’d start both the receivers. If not I’d probably still go with the receivers, but it’s closer.

  • Ppr lg, Hakeem or G Olsen(1.5/ppr/TE)?

    • Hmm, interesting with the extra points for TE. I could see trying Olsen there with LaFell out.

  • Rudolph or Olsen till AHern gets back?

    • Olsen

  • Thanks Chet. I was leaning Titus too. Two final questions. need one more flex: Pierre Thomas, Stevie Johnson, or Heath Miller.
    And this is for a different league than the above, but I need a bye week fill-in. Who do you like the most? Slim pickings, i know: Hixon, Hankerson, Donald Jones. Thanks.

    • forgot to mention, the first question there is for a ppr format, and the second question is non-ppr

    • PT, Hank should see more targets

  • Why Nicks over Maclin?

  • Not a sit/start question, but would you trade Cobb or Torrey Smith for J-Stew? I also have Rice, Ridley, Martin, plus D Thomas, AJ, Gordon and Hartline. Feel like adding one more RB would be smart. What do you think?

  • 1 ppr, need a flex: Titus Young, J Stew, Kenny Britt. Thanks as always Chet.

    • I like Young in PPR. Stew is tempting, but feel good about Young this week.

  • Mjd for cj spiller? Current backs are mjd,Reggie,sjax, mendy. 3player keeper league. Thanks!

    • I could see doing it. Spiller is the better keeper at this point.

  • Joique Bell or Mike Williams at flex, ppr league?

    • WIlliams

  • This is tough because you’ll have so many choices, but I need you to select one WR, any WR, from the entire league (except Calvin, AJ Green, Steve Smith, Titus, and Cruz) to get the most fantasy points this week in 1 ppr format. Examples include Percy v SEA, Demaryius vs CIN, Julio/Roddy v DAL, Reggie Wayne vs MIA, Brandon Marshall vs TEN, or Marques Colston vs PHI. Thanks.

    • Brandon Marshall

  • Trying to trade Andre Johnson for RB. What is he worth? Who would you try to trade for? Thanks.

    • I could see gambling on P Thomas, but you might be able to get a little more.

  • Should I start Matt Schuab against Buff, Eli Manning against Pit, or Jay Cutler against Tenn? I believe either of the 3 could put up major points.

    • I like Eli at home. Houston could win by running each down and Cutler just is also in a run first offense.

  • Flex….d. Moore, spiller, fred Jackson, or jordy. .5 ppr

    • Moore

  • I need to pick 2WRs and Flex between: A. Green, Andre Johnson, T.Young, Nicks, Britt and Antonio Brown. Also TE between Celek, Rudolph and Meyers.

    • Standard btw

    • Green, AJ, Nicks, Celek

  • Assuming Jordy sits, Lance Moore or Josh Gordon

    • I’m leaning Moore with Sproles out

  • Need to sit one out of Cobb, Maclin, Antonio Brown, or Lance Moore, who rides the pine? Thanks.

    • It’s between Brown and Moore for me. I’d sit Moore.

  • Cam or RG3? I am playing alf morris too. Thanks

    • It’s very close, but I like RGIII

  • Luck,r. Jennings, spiller, and t. Smith for cam newton and Brandon Marshall. Which side do you like?

    • Depends on need, but I’d lean the luck side

  • Who is a better flex play this week:

    Torrey Smith

    • Smith

  • Cobb or P Thomas in 0.5 PPR?

    • Leaning Cobb, but it’s close

  • Start Freeman over Eli this week?

    • I wouldn’t.

  • Would you take this trade: Mathews for Dwyer and MJD? (Non-PPR)

    • I’d take Mathews, especially if you need healthy players to make a run.

  • doc, would you trade Luck and Welker for RG3 and Nicks ? Keeper league. More worried about ROS and a Championship this year tho.

    • I’d do that

  • Non-PPR: who would you start at FLEX this week, R.White, J.Stewart, or Eric Decker?
    thanks again, chet

    • Decker

  • PPR: who would you start at FLEX this week, De.Jackson, J.Stewart, or Josh Gordon?
    thanks, chet

    • Stewart, but Jackson has big play potential in a shootout if you are looking for upside.

  • Stephens Howling or N. Washington @ flex? .33PPR

    • Tough call, but I’d lean Howling

  • Hi Chet,

    0.5pt PPR, who would you put at flex:
    Donald Brown vs MIA
    D. Heyward-Bey vs TB


    • DHB for me

      • Titus young or Jennings at the flex this week? PPR. Keep up the good work

      • Might lean Jennings with all the short passes he’s getting in PPR.

  • One more question, in a 1 PPR league:

    I give up Megatron + Givens for AJ80 and Welker? Should I do that? My other WRs are Stevie and A Hernandez. (We play WR/TE as 1 position).

    • Tough one, but I think i would do that so you don’t have to rely on Givens

  • Hey chet i was offered decker and Dez/Maclin for Murray. Should I accept? if so, would you take dez or maclin?

    my rbs are: Rice, T-Rich, Murray, J-Stew
    WRs are: Marshall, Denarius, Antonio Brown, Britt


    • If you start just 2 RBs and no flex I’d go for it. If you have a flex or 3rd RB spot, I think i’d want to keep Murray around

  • Uuuuuuuugh, this one’s killing me: standard scoring, non-PPR, do I go with Chris Johnson or Antonio Brown in my flex? I feel like with the Pittsburgh RB situation as it is, the Steelers will have to throw all day, but Brown has been doing diddly lately. Plus I’m biased towards favoring RBs over WRs due to the (usually) higher floor.

    Then again, CJ’s floor is, like, four yards.

    Gah! Help!

    • Yeah, that’s tough, but I think Brown is safer. I really do feel a 30 yard effort for CJ this weekend

  • Hey Chet, What the heck do I do with Ryan Mathews? Owning him is so frustrating. We start 2 RBs and a flex, so should I try to trade him?

    My whole team:
    Vick, Stafford
    McCoy, Mcfadden, Mathews, Jstew
    Welker, AJ80, Maclin, Britt
    Hernandez, Celek

    • I hear you. I don’t think trading him at this point will net you someone with more value or upside though.

  • Drop Britt, Dwyer or Deangelo for Pierre Thomas? Non-ppr

    • Deangelo

  • thanks, one more. Should I drop kyle rudolph and pick up allen, cook, myers, dressen or someone else? I have keller on bye.

    • Tough call for sure. If you are in desperate need for a win I’d give Allen a go, if you are setting ok, I’d stick with Rudolph.

    • this one is a ppr

  • non ppr…3 questions

    Chris Johnson vs. Daniel Thomas

    Pick Two: Julio Jones, Denarius Moore, and TB Mike (Yeah I feel stupid for asking both those questions, the matchups made me do it)

    Last, Pick 2 (a wr and a rb or 2 wr’s):
    Fred Jackson
    Steve Smith
    James Jones
    Antonio Brown
    Anquan Boldin
    isaac redman (have to pick him up and drop dwyer)

    • CJ, Jones, Moore, Steve Smith, Antonio Brown

  • And in a deep .5 PPR, who would you prefer at FLEX…

    Joique Bell @ JAX or Louis Murphy @ WAS?

    • Murphy

  • +1 PPR…pick 2 FLEX, please.

    LaRod Stephens-Howling @ GB, Felix Jones @ ATL, James Jones vs ARI, Lance Moore vs PHI. Excluded Cecil Shorts due to your low ranking.

    If it matters any… Brees is my QB (possible combo with Moore), Felix plays Sunday night, and Moore plays Monday night.

    • Lance Moore and James Jones

  • Leshore, Pierre Thomas, and James Jones. Pick one for rb2 and which one for flex? Thanks

    • PT and Jones

  • Pierre T or Julio in the flex? Have Demaryius + Green at WR and DMC + T Rich at RB.

    • Julio J

  • Hey Chet, T.Young, J.Gordon, BJGE. Pick one WR & one Flex. Standard Scoring. Thanks.

    • Young and Gordon

  • Jacquizz, Boldin or Turner for ppr RB2?

    • The WR Boldin?

  • Trade Torrey Smith and Felix Jones for Hakeem Nicks? Will Nicks take advantage of easy schedule upcoming?

    • I think it’s worth it. Jones is garbage and Smith, though very good, won’t see the targets Nicks will.

  • Non-PPR… Desperate flex option: Avery, Hankerson, Louis Murphy or Jacquizz? Been floundering all day… Thanks!

    • Tough call. I might lean Murphy there.

  • have brady and ryan. rb’s are weak trying to get mccoy. Straight deal brady for mccoy? am i asking to little in return? thanks,keith

    • I’d do that for sure.
