Week 15 Ranksauce

posted by gregsauce

I’d like to thank Rashard Mendenhall and Brandon Jacobs for getting themselves suspended for conduct detrimental to their respective teams. They really cleared up the running back hierarchies in Pittsburgh and San Francisco for rankers like me. Mendy and Jacobs’ collective gesture of missing a paycheck to make our jobs easier shows that they really care about the fantasy football community. Stand-up move, guys! Here are my Week 15 ranks:

  • Bryce Killed me Thur. .Need High Ceiling-PPR Sproles or can Mathews Finally deliver at home w/o Ronnie taking his snaps? THX

    • I still like Sproles over Mathews in PPR.

  • Succop vs. KC, Hanson vs. AZ, Dawson vs. Was, Bailey vs. Pit, Lindell vs. Sea or Carpenter vs. Jac?

    • Hanson

  • For a flex this week, start Cecil Shorts, Torrey Smith, Vernon Davis or Alex Green?

    • actually, pls. rank them for me. Thanks.

    • Shorts, Davis, Smith, Green.

  • Ranksauce always appreciated! As an off and on Rudolph owner, can I ask why you are higher on him than your comrades, over a guy like Olsen?

    • Rudolph is basically Ponder’s #1 receiving option with Percy Harvin out.

  • Playing the guy who called out that he was taking me down at the draft so I want to crush him. What do you think is my optimal lineup? Currently starting:

    QB: Brady
    WR: Alexander
    WR: Austin
    WR: Blackmon
    RB: Martin
    RB: Charles
    TE: Scheffler
    RB: Spiller
    K: Bryant
    DST: Detroit

    Bench is: Maclin, Britt, Fitzgerald, Chris Johnson, Vernon Davis, Bears DST.

    You think I have the best lineup in or do I gamble with one of Maclin or Britt over Blackmon and risk fantasy suicide with Davis at TE and the Bears against Rodgers?

    Thanks a lot for the help all season, can’t say I would be in 3 playoffs without you guys here!

    • I like Britt more than Blackmon this week and Davis more than Scheffler. The Patriots tend to give up a lot of fantasy points to tight ends.

  • Need to start 3 of these guys in a PPR: Moreno, Bryce Brown, Reggie Wayne, Roddy White. Who would you go with?

    • Bench Wayne.

  • I have D. Martin, Alf, Ridley, and D. Wilson. Is Ridley’s matchup with SF that tough that I should play Wilson if Bradshaw is out? Or do my other backs assure me of enough points that I can play it safe and go Ridley?

    • If Bradshaw is out, I would use all your other RBs over Ridley. The 49ers run defense terrifies me.

  • I have Dez in both of my 12 team & 10 team PPR leagues. It sounds like he is going to play, but how effective will he actually be……12 Team: Would you start Dez over Garcon & DX, Right now I have Cruz & Garcon in at WRs & DX as my flex. 10 Team: Would you start Dez over Cruz, Wayne, Marshall & VJax? I currently have Cruz, Wayne & Marshall in at WRs & VJax as my flex.

    • 12-Team: If RGIII plays, I would use Garcon and Alexander ahead of Dez. If RGIII sits, I’d use DX and Dez.

      10-Team: I wouldn’t start Dez over any of those guys. Cruz, Jackson, and Marshall are all top-5 options this week and Wayne is much safer than Dez.

  • Two questions:

    QB – Kaepernick, Romo or Big Ben

    PPR Flex – Bryce Brown tomorrow night or wait until Sunday for either Dez or Decker


    • Kaep and Brown.

  • Standard League, need 1 RB and 3 WR

    Wilson, B. Brown, DX, J. Gordon, Decker, Dez, Garçon

    • RB: Brown (but if Bradshaw sits, I’d use Wilson)
      WR: Alexander, Decker, Gordon

  • Although, I can just play Bryce and wait on the other two since your sold on him either way. Thanks. I was thinking Colston was a lock vs TB…

  • Hook me up with the sauce Greg, Please choose two from this group – Bryce Brown, Colston, and David Wilson.


    • It all depends on Ahmad Bradshaw. If he plays, I’d use Brown and Colston. If he sits, I’d use Wilson and Brown. I have Wilson ranked assuming Bradshaw will be out.

      • Thanks. As you know,the problem is Bryce goes tomorrow night. Damn these Thursday night games. Unless Coughlin makes the decision before tomorrow’s kickoff (which I doubt).

      • Max, you can start Brown tonight and then wait until Sunday to decide between Colston and Wilson… or do your lineups lock at the beginning of the Thursday game? If so, I would just play it safe and use Colston.
