  1. Jeff says:

    I think Moore is a good enough 2nd option to eliminate the risk of Julio this week. Go with Moore.

  2. Razztastic says:

    Pick 2, no PPR

    (limited) Julio Jones, Cecil Shorts, or Greg Olsen.

    Thanks.

  3. Stewart says:

    Julio or TRich in the flex.

  4. Meatloaf says:

    Julio Jones, or Denarius Moore?

  5. Ryan Campbell says:

    FLEX spot in a PPR league: mcgahee/wallace/torrey

    thank you

  6. Tim Roberts says:

    Avery or Ballard as my flex in .5 ppr?

  7. Pick 1 from Julio, Vjax or decker. Julio will be limited

  8. Renny says:

    Been going crazy over Palmer and Luck decision at QB this week. Right now have Palmer in, and that’s mainly because NO #32 D and my league does NOT penalize for INT’s. Thoughts?

    • Jeff says:

      Go with your gut, I have no issue with that choice. Its a toss up to me anyhow, as I’ve got them ranked right next to each other.

  9. Pompy says:

    Leshoure or wait on Mathews?

  10. Cramer says:

    PPR League. Team is stacked. Already have Demarious Thomas, dez, Cobb and aj green locked in at wr/wr Flex/flex. Cj spiller already played for me. Gotta fill my last RB spot with Forte or sproles. What…the hell do I do? then once that is decided… Do I play forte/sproles over one of those wrs?? I dont think I can. (Also have DHB, HeathBAR, BJGE.)

    • Jeff says:

      Leave the WR’s where they’re at, those guys are awesome. As for RB, I would play Forte despite the tough matchup. The Saints backfield is crowded and I would wait until we see how much run Sproles will get before starting him weekly.

  11. Greg says:

    Leshoure, Stephens-Howlings, Brandon Lloyd – 2 out of 3

  12. need help says:

    .5 PPR, Steven Jackson or Marcel Reece. Thanks!

  13. Wilsonian says:

    0.5 PPR. Play Titus over Witten in flex?

  14. slim says:

    PPR Julio or Maclin also Sproles or Morris?

  15. Chet_G says:

    Dang, tough call there. In PPR it’s hard to sit Danny. I’d probably lean toward sitting AJ

  16. mikeytuna says:

    I have Marcel Reece, Ridley and Quizz Rodgers as RBs in a non-PPR league. For WRs I have Jones, Lloyd and Denarius Moore. My lineup looks like:

    RB: Ridley

    RB: Quizz

    WR: Moore

    WR: Lloyd

    Flex: Reece

    Do you like plugging in a limited Julio over Quizz (I would essentially just move Reece to RB and start Julio at WR)?

  17. Jon J says:

    Brent Celek against a woeful Redskins defense or Owen Daniels against a Jacsonville defense good against the TE?

  18. Herschel says:

    PPR league, start three of these four – Dez, Decker, Andre Johnson and Amendola. Who do you like?

  19. Steve C says:

    Sorry My Bad. Flex mixup PPR would u start Felix over Sproles w/the crowded Saints Backfield? I did make the Titus switch ..agree with a shoot out ..thanks Chet

  20. Brian says:

    Need a TE for Hernandez this week, PPR, Duane Allen, Brent Celek or Dustin Keller?

  21. Have Shorts and Danario Alexander in the wings. Risk Julio play regardless?

  22. Andrew Berg says:

    Julio Jones or Malcom Floyd?

  23. Ant says:

    Pick 2 .5 PPR. Marshall, Moore, and Andre Johnson. I have Moore and Marshall in, I liked the targets Marshall got with Campbell but I’m scared SF D might disrupt that.

  24. Jermichael says:

    10 Team PPR: Luck, Eli, Wayne, Marshall, Dez, Cruz, Amendola, R Rice, AP, DMC, Beanie, D Thomas, Gates, Vernon. Do you think Antonio Brown is worth stashing?

  25. 1/2ppr.. dwayne allen/dustin keller.. bengals/rams dst? & malcomfloyd/denario alexander/ andre roberts/ cecil shorts. thanks

  26. Steve C says:

    Devastated w/injuries. Besides my starters officially out I have 2 pick PPR RB,WR & FLEX: Julio. Mike Wms, Titus, Felix,Sproles,. Am I good w/Julio & Williams @WR. Then Ray Rice & Mathews For RB and Sproles @ Flex? Thanx

  27. Steve M. says:

    TE Logan Paulsen or RB Ronnie Hillman for my deep league flex spot this week?

  28. Chet_G says:

    I’d lean Austin and Jones

  29. Debating between Lance Moore and James Jones as WR in 10 team PPR. If I’m going by your composite rankings, I go Jones, but if Nelson plays, does that affect the decision at all?

    Also, do I start Larod Stephens-Howling over Mathews? Larod has been playing well and has a good match-up and Mathews is questionable and hasn’t been good (also 10 team PPR)

  30. Jonathan says:

    Leshoure, James Jones, or Miles Austin? Need to pick 2. Concerned that Green Bay gets up big against Detroit and they abandon run/Bell sees majority of snaps in passing downs.

  31. Hi I need a backup plan if Julio Jones sits: Cecil Shorts, Jeremy Kerley or Titus Young.

    Thanks.

  32. momomoses7 says:

    Given J Jones’ iffy ankle would I be smart to play F Jones at flex over him?

  33. Wilsonian says:

    I have two guys on the bench that I could start – Titus and LeShoure. Would you play either of them over Felix? It’s a 0.5 PPR and we have 3 bonus points at 85 yards receiving and 100 yards rushing, and 6 bonus points at 135 yards receiving and 150 yards rushing.

  34. Tony says:

    Better ROS in PPR? Danario or Titus. Thoughts?

  35. J Thomas says:

    Is Garcon worth stashing? I’d have to drop Danario Alexander, Rudolph, Reece, or the Steelers D/ST (I’m starting the Bengals D/ST this week and been streaming them all year.)
    (RB: Rice, TRich, Charles. TE: Gresham. WR: DMoore, Amendola, Djax.)

    Thanks
