  • Jeff, thank you for your time. Keep up the great work. Pick 2 (Non-PPR): Lamar Miller, Steve Smith, Emmanuel Sanders, Brian Hartline, Rod Streater, Justin Hunter, LaDarius Green (tough match-up with both he and Gates on the field together). Thank you.

  • Flex question: I am a little scared of joe harden coverage of. Antonio brown. Should I still roll the dice with A brown, or also have avail T Williams WR, Tavon Austin, or monte ball for vulture TD?

    • I understand the concern completely but with those other options I would stick with Brown

      • Ok I will take the advice. Thanks a bunch

  • Flex spot: Cecil Shorts, Shane Vereen, or Leveon Bell?

    0.5 PPR

    Cecil Shorts complained about targets last game and squeaky wheel gets greased, etc, but its against Houston.

    Leveon Bell gets like 20 touches a game but Cleveland has allowed 1 rushing TD over the past 5 weeks.

    Shane Vereen, well I don’t know much about him other than he got 11 targets while only playing 50% of the snaps last week.

    • I would give Vereen the nod here. I agree with your thoughts on Shorts but Vereen seems like more of a sure thing this week. He should be good.

      • Thanks! Appreciate the work and the site, btw.

  • standard scoring league. start 2 rbs and 2 wrs and a flex. a.d-mjd-and vereen andre johnson, garcon, j.gordon and torrey smith. Im thinking start a.d. and vereen and starting johnson gordon and flexing smith. garcon has been hot but 49ers defense and rg3’s ups and downs scare me! what do you think?

    • I like what you’ve got going here. Those WRs are all close enough that I would have said go with your gut anyway, so Johnson, Gordon, Smith it is! Good luck!

  • Ray Rice or J Boykin @ flex. Non- PPR.

    • Non ppr probably Rice but wouldnt be thrilled about it

  • TY or Colston? Standard scoring. Thanks!

    • I have Hilton higher but the consensus says Colston so go with him tonight

  • standard ppr. pick 2 Ryan Mathews, Chris Ogbannaya, Dwayne Bowe. If sitting Bowe, would you do Bowe over Boykins?

    • I’d go with Bowe and Boykins. Matthews has a tough matchup.

  • Hey, Jeff.

    Background: My QBs are Kaep, Foles and Cutler. My WRs are Gordon, Dez and Harvin; TEs are Reed and Gronk. RBs: Bush, L. Bell, Z. Stacy, J. Bell.

    Question: I was offered Garcon for Foles and KC Chiefs D. Looking to win it all. Would you do it?

    • Great question. This one is tough but I do think I would take it. You can stream D’s and then rely on Kap for the next week or two until Cutler is back, who has a nice fantasy playoff schedule. My only question would be about your starting lineup requirements, as it could potentially be overkill if this move sends Harvin to the bench.

      • A quick follow up: Please rank ROS: PPR 0.5: Gordon or Harvin? Is it close?

  • Roddy White or Harry Douglas this week?

    • I’ve got them very close with Roddy slightly higher. This feels like the week where he will finally get rolling.

  • I was going to wait to see if Jordan Reed passed his concussion test before i play Fleener, but i am thinking Fleener is the play regardless given the matchup… would you agree?

    Also, do you go Cleveland’s D (with Haden locking down Antonio Brown) over Houston’s D?

    • I think Fleener is a great play and with the mystery surrounding Reed, I think playing him works just fine.

    • I would probably go with Houston over Cleveland for D but its pretty close

  • You guys and your tricky rankings: 2nd week in a row I need to pick 2 of Andre Brown, Darren Sproles and Ben Tate in PPR, and your rankings don’t make it easy, especially with Sproles ranking from 4 to 17. (Last week the consensus had them back to back to back)

    • It appears that Sproles is dinged up and a game time call for Thursday night. Even if healthy, I would go with Brown and Tate this week.

  • As always, the staff rankings are much appreciated and helpful. Thanks Guys.

    It gets tricky in the flex position when one is trying to compare an RB’s potential to a WR’s. This week’s conundrum for me is:

    Amendola or Sproles?

    • After a second glance at your WR rankings, I suppose the question should be Fitz or Sproles…?

      • Yes, I would play one of the WRs over Sproles. I have Amendola a tad higher personally but Fitz is another solid option this week.

  • I am not certain about starting Keenan Allen against a stout KC secondary. Is Santonio Holmes a reach or a reasonable play? 12 team PPR.

    • I dont think it is SUPER crazy, but I wouldn’t do it personally

  • How do you evaluate Ben Tate ROS? Are the ribs a major concern?

    • I think he will be a high RB2 for the ROS. If he has made it through the last couple games, I would think the rib pain is tolerable for the most part.
