  • 10 Team PPR, I’m in 2nd, 3rd place wants to set up a trade. Do you see a trade that could work at all? My team: Luck, Cruz, Marshall, Wayne, Rice, AP, Gates, Dez, Eli, DMC, Joique, Vernon, Amendola, Beanie. His team: Staff, Shorts, B lloyd, Wright, Foster, Ridley, Hernandez, Ballard, Harvin, Redman, Finley, Sproles, Alexander, Taiwan

  • 14 Team PPR: Would you rather have Daryl Richardson or Chris Ivory on your bench?

  • If Owen Daniels sits, start the other Hou TE Garrett Graham or KC Tony Moeaki?

  • Is anyone having trouble with yahoo fantasy football?

    • Yeah, it’s slow for me

      • I can’t even get in.

  • Pick two crabtree, Austin, moore or nicks? starting cruz
    Ppr league. Thanks

    • Austin and D. Moore, but Nicks if it’s L. Moore.

  • PPR 1 point league. Brent Celek or Kyle Rudolph this week and rest of season? Thanks.

    • Not liking either really, but have to lean Rudolph with harvin out, but Celek for the season

  • Need a JNelson bye week replacement. Donald Jones, Bess or Cotchery/Sanders

    • Sanders

    • Sanders

  • Nah, I’d rather play Julio, Marshall and Denarius. So I’d just keep him as a handcuff, Antonio Brown will be back soon.

  • I have Michael Bush on my bench just kinda in case Forte gets hurt even though I dont own Forte. Should I just drop him for Sanders? (I have Marshall, Julio, Amendola, Denarius, Britt). Thanks.

  • Amendola or Britt in non-ppr today?

  • RB…Forte,Charles,Reece and Redman i need 2 and hate forte/charles matchups whatcha think? and for wr Dez,D.Moore, or Hartline i need 1 thanks a lot

    • Forte, Redman and Moore. Wouldn’t blame you for playing Dez and Charles though

  • torrey or nicks ppr?

    • Very close I’m leaning Nicks

  • Joique bell, PT, or FJax in .5 PPR- leanin FJax? Thx!

  • Chet!!!! Pick two please (.5PPR) – Ryan Mathews, Reggie Bush, Welker. Thanks.

  • Flex jamaal Charles, D Moore, or T Smith? Also trade my havin and Mathews for spiller and Welker? All non-ppr, thanks

    • Charles. Don’t trade Harvin, he’ll be back after his bye next week

  • Please pick 2! Reece Stewart or F. Jones. Thank you!

    • Reece and Stewart

  • is Antonio Brown droppable? non ppr and I think I want Emmanuel Sanders

    • I wouldn’t unless you are completely desperate

  • Longshot FLEX today. Greg Olsen v. DEN or Kendall Hunter v. STL?

    • Go Olsen, he has a better chance of scoring.

  • Amendola, Titus, Emmanuel sanders- need 2 in PPR… Worried about amendola’s questionable tag….

    • Bench Amendola, give him a week to see that he gets a full complement of snaps

  • Which two would you start at WR in a non-PPR league: Julio Jones, Denarius Moore, Lloyd, or Nicks?
    Also, looking for a high-upside flex between any of the aforementioned WRs and Quizz and Redman. Thanks.

    • It was Julio Jones! Okay, you have to play Julio. Then you play any of Lloyd, Nicks and Redman. I would go Nicks, but Lloyd also has a great matchup and Redman is starting.

  • Struggling to decide between JCharles, Britt, or Titus Young for flex in std league. Thanks for the advice!

    • Yeah, JC is the hardest player to call right now. I think you have to play him there and hope.

      • Yeah, I’m nervous but I’ll start JC. Much appreciated.

  • okay to play Amendola in flex? PPR

    • Yes

  • Starting Spiller and Martin at RB1 and RB2. Trying to figure out who to start between Charles and Chris Johnson. Could also go with Sanders or Green-Ellis. Should I just flip a coin between Charles and Johnson? Thanks for the gameday advice!

    • I’d lean Johnson.

  • Leshoure or Demaryius Thomas for flex? I have Eric Decker in my lineup. Thanks

    • Thomas

  • Do I go with Pierre Thomas or Marcel Reece in standard scoring?

    • I like PT

  • Gresham, Pettigrew or Keller? Thanks.

    • Leaning Pettigrew

  • Morning, boys! Need two WRs out of this motley crew (PPR scoring):

    Kenny Britt
    Dwayne Bowe
    Danny Amendola
    Malcolm Floyd


    • Floyd, Britt for me.

  • .5 PPR league, pick 2 of the 4. Marshall, A. Johnson, Denarius Moore, Mike Williams (TB). I’m feeling Marshall and Johnson, but I think whether Tillman plays is big.

    • You’re playing Marshall every week, no matter what. I’d go with Moore over Andre.

  • PPR .5 league, pick 1 out of the 3. Ryan Matthews, CJ Spiller, or Taiwan Jones? I’m leaning Spiller here on the upside with hopes of more touches.

    • You have to go with Spiller. I love him as an RB1 this week, and going forward.

  • Every site I see has Vick ranked just a bit ahead of Dalton, but I’m getting sick of Vick. Any votes for Dalton over Vick today?

    • I’d be fine with Dalton over Vick. Neither is a great option, obviously, but I think Dalton has the most upside there, as crazy as that might sound.

  • BJGE or Lance Moore at flex?

    • Lance Moore played less than half of the Saints’ Week 9 snaps. He might get a goal line look, but you can’t bank on that. Go with Law Firm and pray he doesn’t defecate in or around the bed.

  • Owen Daniels owner. Casey or any other real WW options not available. Should I preemptively start Dallas Clark, or ride it out tonight and plug in Tony Moeaki tomorrow if needed?

    • Dear Lord. That’s bleak. Here are my preferred TEs for Daniels owners: Olsen, Rudy, Myers. If you must, go with Clark over Moeaki.

  • Full PPR, Emmanuel Sanders, Joique Bell or Taiwan Jones?

    • Bell is tempting, but I’d lean Jones.

  • Amendola, DHB, Steve Smith (Carolina). Need 2 in PPR. Thanks!

    • I’d sit DHB

  • who would you play along with julio? brandon lloyd, torrey smith, mike williams, denarious moore?

    • ppr league.

      • Tough call. With Ahern out I’m leaning Lloyd.

  • Now that Harvin is out lions d or Dallas d?

    • Not sure how the Vikings are going to move the ball with any consistency, so I’d go with the Lions.

  • good morning.

    1/2 pt PPR – pick TWO – Marcel Reese, Ike Redman, Emanuel Sanders, Pierre Thomas.


    • I Like Ike and Pierre (combining campaign slogans from 1950s American and French presidential elections, of course).

      • much appreciated.

        in a another league, 1 pt PPR would you lean to Reese over Titus Young or Emanuel Sanders?


      • Yes, I would.

  • Dez or Ryan Mathews in the FLEX

    • That’s tough. Bucs have the No. 1 rush defense, so I’d hedge on Mathews, although I believe his breakout is coming soon. I think Mathews is the high-upside play while Dez is the safer option.

  • 1-point PPR Flex… Maclin, J.Stewart, or Britt? Thx!

    • Really close between Britt and Stewart, but I’m a sucker for JStew’s potential, and I think he’ll get a fair number of touches this week.

  • PPR, which two of three should be in my lineup? J. Charles, Leshoure, Tampa Mike? Thanks.

  • 10 team PPR. Amendola or Maclin? Thanks.

    • Has to be Amendola in PPR. Check expectations against a Niners’ defense that will surely key on him.

  • With DMC hurt, I need to run a 1 RB/ 4 WR set. Would you be so kind as to pick the best four from this group: Andre Johnson, Wes Welker, Torrey Smith, Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd, Jeremy Maclin.

    Leaning with leaving Torrey and Maclin on the bench, but Flacco is at home.

    What say you?

    • Not really sure you can go wrong here, but yeah, I’d bench Torrey because Floyd has an irresistible match-up against a Swiss cheese Bucs secondary. And bench Maclin, for sure.

  • steven jackson or pierre thomas

    • I’d go with Thomas, even though he’ll get fewer touches than SJax. I can’t think of a worse RB match-up this week, or any week, than Jackson versus the Niners’ run defense.

  • 12 team nonppr pick 3 for this week: E. Sanders, Bowe, L. Moore, Dan Thomas, DHB, N. Washington, SJax, DRich.
    Which guys get the bid?

    • Sanders, Bowe and DHB.

  • Hey guys…Looking at adding Britt to my bench the playoff run. Would you drop Redman or Reece to make room? Probably not starting either this week, FYI. Thanks!

    • Kind of can’t believe Britt is available. Drop Reece, I think, because Redman could put a stranglehold on the Steelers’ RB job this week.

  • With Hernandez out..what order would you play the following TEs

    Chandler, Pitta, Cook, Fasano, Dreesen?

    James Casey have any value if Daniels is out?

  • 0.5 PPR flex. 0.1 pt per yard. 6pts for TD. Brian Hartline or Marcel Reece. Thanks!

  • 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

    • I think Olsen has the most upside here against a Denver defense that has been slaughtered by opposing tight ends. Start Lloyd and Britt.

  • ppr 1pt flex J Charles S Johnson or T Smith? Starting Forte/Ridley and Wayne/Cruz. Thanks!

    • Go with Stevie here, and hope his various injuries don’t flare up in game.
