    Are you guys not putting up content like draft tiers this year? Month out from go time!

  2. dale says:

    Hey Chet,

    Thanks for your help all season long. I’ve come here a few times for help with tough decisions this season and I’m always thrilled to have some help from a dedicated fake football pro. has been my go-to source for a long time now and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. This year’s Reader’s Leagues have given me an appreciation for DFS, which, to be completely honest, I hope doesn’t turn into another vice for me…lol.

    So, here I am, one last time this year. I have made the finals in my hometown league – the most important of all my leagues (I’m only in two this year, but made finals in both. Maybe less really is more). My decision this week is between Tate and Funchess in .5ppr. Tate has a volume that’s tough to bench and as I read from Evan Silva, the CIN slot coverage isn’t as great as the rest of their secondary. Funchess has a dream matchup, receives decent volume and has TD upside. I find myself leaning towards Funchess this week, which is tough because Tate was a preseason target of mine, has mostly performed well, but I need to check my bias. Any thoughts?

    • Chet says:

      I think the addition of Olsen hurts Funchess’ upside and the Bengals have pretty much given up. Tough call for sure, but I’m leaning Tate. Good luck and I’m happy the site could be helpful!

  3. Philly B says:

    This league I’m in has 2 Flex spots and .5 PPR. Currently starting Kamara, Hunt and McCoy at RB. At WR I’m starting Fitz, Michael Thomas and Diggs. Kelce at TE. I’m thinking switching out Diggs for another player; Mike Davis, Gallman, Keelan Cole, Josh Gordon or Greg Olsen.

  4. Jimmy says:

    Hey! I have a few questions here: for rb2 – currently starting perine, but also have stewart and duke johnson – who do you prefer? Also, for wr 1 & 2 or flex – currently starting aj green, davante adams, thielen, but i have goodwin and alshon on the bench – who would u start out of those? Appreciate the help!

  5. Philly says:

    .5 ppr: Dede, Diggs or Josh Gordon? I’m currently starting Fitz and Michael Thomas. Being this deep is a gift and a curse.

    Also, Big Ben or Jimmy G? This league is -1 for every sack and -2 for every INT.


  6. dale says:

    .5 ppr
    I need to pick 3 WRs, 2 RBs and 1 RB/WR out of the following group:
    M. Thomas
    J Williams
    D Henry
    T Coleman

    Here’s how I’m leaning:
    WR: Nuk
    WR: Thomas
    WR: Baldwin
    RB: Hunt
    RB: Williams
    Flex: Funchess

    Any thoughts?

  7. Josh says:

    Hi there! Jamaal Williams or Kareem Hunt in standard? Gore or jamaal in ppr this week? Thanks!

  8. Austen says:

    Which 2 QB’s would you start this week: Andy Dalton, Big Ben, Josh Mccown? I’ve curnetly got Mccown/Dalton in right now, but I kinda want to start Big Ben as well becuase you don’t bet against him at home, although he’s going against a strong pass D in Baltimore.

  9. Jimmy says:

    Standard league head to head who should i start at rb2 – jamaal williams vs CLE or Perine?? Im torn

  10. Mike says:

    2 different leagues both Half-point PPR……M Ingram, Lamar Miller, Duke Johnson, Peyton Barber, A Collins need 2………Hunt, Drake, P Barber, A Morris, G Bernard need 3….. Thanks!

  11. Philly says:

    Big Ben or Tyrod?

    .5 ppr: Kareem Hunt, Woodhead or Dede Westbrook?

  12. Paul says:

    News 1 flex player
    non ppr – std scoring
    L.Miller v Ari
    I.Crowell v Jax
    D.Martin @ Mia
    J.Mixon @ Den
    R.Woods @ Min

    Thank you

  13. Sara says:

    PPR – Amendola (if he plays) or Beasley

  14. Andy says:

    Bye week and the waiver wire is THIN. Dalton or Eli at QB? If it helps any…I have AJ Green as well, so is it worth a stack? Thanks!

  15. David Vest says:

    non ppr 1)which 2 for my flex spots in week 9: Hyde, Kamara or Darkwa? 2) Best 2 WR’s for ROS: Ris. Matthews, R.Anderson, Richardson, M.Jones jr., M.Lee or R.Woods? Thanks

  16. Phil B says:

    .5 PPR, I’m already starting Engram at TE, so for the flex, pick 1: ASJ, Marlon Mack or Derrick Henry. Bye week and injuries got me in this league.

    Diff league, also .5 ppr: I’m starting Fuller and Michael Thomas. For the flex: Doug Martin or Larry Legend? I feel like Stanton will force feed Fitz in this game.

  17. Philly B says:

    Thanks for the advice throughout the season.
    Who’s the better stash and wait? .5 ppr: woodhead, Dede Westbrook or Mike Williams?

    • Chet says:

      It looks like Woodhead’s best case in Week 11, but I could see grabbing him sooner than later in PPR leagues. I think Westbrook might have the quickest value, but it’s not going to be great. I’d probably go Woodhead.

  18. Philly B says:

    At QB: Watson or Tyrod Taylor? (-1 for every sack)

    .5 ppr, pick 2: Doug Martin, Powell, Will Fuller and ASJ.


    • Ian Goldsmith says:

      1. I’m going Tyrod this week. Seattle is a top-3 D against QBs, and I’m avoiding them at home.

      2. Martin and ASJ. Fuller is much too TD dependent, and the matchup is terrible. I don’t trust the Jets to give Powell the ball, even though he’s their best back.

      That said, if you are projected to lose by a significant margin and need a Hail Mary type of play to try and win, I’d go Watson/Powell over Tyrod/Martin. ASJ is a lock.

  19. Andy says:

    Trade Derrick Henry for Dion Lewis in a PPR league?

  20. Beef Jerky says:

    Pick one ..1 ppr ASJ/ Henry and pick two Powell/Collins/Darkwa/Rawls

  21. David says:

    I’m in a real fix because of byes and injuries – I’d like some advice on RB2, WR3, and Flex for this week. PPR.

    Ingram is my RB1, and my choices for RB2 are Darkwa, Buck Allen, TyMont, Aaron Jones, and Marlon Mack. Leaning Allen for RB2 and Darkwa at flex.

    WRs 1 and 2 are Keenan Allen and Chris Hogan. WR3 candidates are Jeremy Maclin and Jamison Crowder. Could alternately go to the waiver wire and get Kenny Stills, Josh Doctson, or Bennie Fowler. Leaning Maclin here but two Ravens in the starting lineup isn’t great.

  22. dale says:

    If I can trade Kareem Hunt for Newton, Gronkowski and Ingram I definitely should, correct?

    14 team, .5 ppr
    I’ve been streaming QBs and i’m tired.
    Current TE is ASJ

  23. AJ says:

    PPR 2-QB league, just lost Rodgers.

    Got offered: my Mike Evans for his Brady and Davante Adams.

    I’d go from starting Matt Ryan/Josh McCown to Brady/Ryan. But I’d be downgrading from Evans to Adams and my WRs aren’t that great to begin with (plus Sanders hurt now).

    Big worry of course is Adams flopping – if he stays decent this would work out for me. Thoughts?

  24. Philly B says:

    Full point ppr league, I Got a trade offer for my Kareem Hunt for Antonio Brown. Currently I have at RB:
    Duke Johnson, Mike Gillislee and Joe Mixon

    At WR:
    Emmanuel Sanders
    Will Fuller
    JuJu Smith Schuster
    Mike Williams
    Robert Woods
    Bennie Fowler

    Should I accept? I offered him Gronk and Duke already but he’s declined. (TE: gronk, Engram and ASJ) I’ve been trying to sell Gronk for a WR1 but nobody is budging. If I accept this offer, I’d probably shop around either Sanders or Fuller for an RB.

    What do you think?

  25. Robert Usher says:

    I am not sure who to start at QB in my standard scoring League.My options are C.Wentz or M.Mariota I am leaning towards Mariota because of the matchup.How about WR I have T.Hilton, D.Baldwin, K.Allen or John Brown.My flex options are F.Gore or D.Martin.Thanks!!!

    • Chet says:

      Both have good upside this week. I might lean wentz at home, but I’d be more than happy with mm. Martin and Baldwin would be my picks if the others.

  26. Darco says:

    Standard league. If I could get Julio or A.J. Green for Gronk, should I? My TE’s : Gronk, ASJ. WR’s: Demaryius, Parker, Fuller, Agholor. I need help at WR, but dumping Gronk… I don’t know… I am currently 6-0. Miraculously.

  27. dale says:

    14 team, 1/2ppr, Q,R,R,W,W,W,T,W/R/T
    2 keepers each year with no conditions.
    My team:
    J Brissett (streaming)
    K Hunt
    T Coleman
    D Hopkins
    M Thomas
    G Tate
    AS Jenkins
    D Baldwin
    D Henry
    A Ellington
    R Lewis
    C Fleener

    My question is; should I trade away next year’s 4th round draft pick and Baldwin for Jordy Nelson. Keep in mind that our 4th round is theoretically a 6th round because all 14 teams have 2 keepers. I value all my draft picks and not sure I want to mortgage the future. I feel like my team has a great shot at the title as is (I’m currently 3-2, but lead the league in points for by 80).

    What would you do?

    Follow up – I could in turn trade Jordy for Gronk. Would you do that?

  28. Phil B says:

    Pick 3, .5 PPR: Andre Ellington, Doug Martin, Stefon Diggs, Will Fuller.

  29. J says:

    Trade my Mariota/Duke J and receive Brees/John Brown?

    12 team .5 ppr, 5 pt passing tds… my other RBs are Doug M, Kamara, Ty Mont, Smallwood and Tarik.


  30. Taz says:

    12 team PPR, 3 WR.

    I give: Davante Adams, Mark Ingram, ASJ
    I get: Mike Evans

    I have Gronk at TE. My other RBs are Kareem Hunt, James White, Wendell Smallwood, Danny Woodhead (IR slot).

    Do I accept? Worried I’m making myself too thin at RB.

  31. Mike says:

    PPR, need three:
    LMiller, TColeman, Riddick, Powell, RKelley

  32. Dan says:

    12 team PPR. 16 roster spots (1QB/2RB/3WR/Flex). I’m 2-1 and looking to grab Doug Martin from an 0-3 owner.

    Should I trade away Hopkins and Duke Johnson for Adam Thielen and Doug Martin?

    If I do it, my RBs would be – Murray / Mixon / (Martin) / Smallwood
    WRs – Julio / (Thielen) / JJ Nelson / Ginn / Richardson / Stills
    QB – Brees
    TE – Ertz


    • Chet says:

      I think it’s fair and likely the safer route, but I’m feeling better about Watson throwing to Nuk and Duke looked great last week. There’s upside there, but the Martin side is safer.

  33. Andy says:

    Thoughts on this trade in a PPR league:
    Trade Jordy and Smallwood to get Mixon and Cobb? My RB situation is not good.
    Current RBs: Ajayi, Powell, Buck Allen, Abdullah, Smallwood
    Current WRs: Jordy, Tyreke Hill, Amari Cooper, Demaryus Thomas, JJ Nelson, Pickett, Sanu

  34. Phil says:

    Who’s a good buy low candidate that’s flying under the radar?

  35. Mike says:

    wait on rcobb update with paul richardson as option or start marv jones?

  36. Philly says:

    PPR: McCoy vs, DEN or Chris Carson vs. TEN?
    Also, I benched Garcon like a fool. Who to start at WR, pick 2: Brandin Cooks, JJ Nelson, or Devante Parker? Also PPR. Thanks.

  37. Rich says:

    In week 3, who would you start D. Bryant or J. Landry?

  38. For non PPR for my flex should I have Jared Cook or Kyle Rudolph or tate? So basically asking who should I have at TE rudolph or cook ?

  39. Phil says:

    PPR, pick 1 WR and 1 Flex: Corey Coleman, Corey Davis, Alvin Kamara, Bilal Powell and JJ Nelson.

  40. Jimmy says:

    Hey, I have a start/sit question. Standard league, for my flex should i start Kerwynn Williams, Adam Thielen, or Demaryius Thomas? Thanks

  41. Philly says:

    Ppr league: which RB should I grab off FA; Chris Johnson or D’Onta Foreman?

  42. Zachary Feeney says:

    For a PPR league I am stuck at having either Golden tate or John brown in my flex ? Any idea who I should start

  43. Frank A says:

    .5 PPR: Mike Wallace, Zay Jones or Corey Coleman?

    • Ian Goldsmith says:

      Wallace is definitely the safest of the three. If you’re down big after Thursday, then I’d roll out Jones for the upside.

  44. Matt says:

    Can you rank these teams where you think they’d finish? : start 2 QB, 3 RB, 4 WR, 1 TE, 1 W/T for positions and 6 point passing TD
    Team 1: QB: Carr, Wentz, WR: Julio, Jordy, Nuk, Diggs, RB: Elliott, Fournette, Mixon, TE: Brate, W/T: Snead
    Team 2: QB: Winston, Prescott, WR: Green, Crabtree, Ty Williams, Demaryius, RB: Freeman, Cook, Henry, TE: Eifert, W/T: J Brown
    Team 3: QB: Manning, Tyrod, WR: A Brown, Baldwin, Hilton, Watkins, RB: Demarco, Anderson, Ingram, TE: Reed, W/T: Britt
    Team 4: QB: Wilson, Mariota, WR: Michael T, AROB, Fitz, Crowder, RB: D Johnson, L Miller, P Perkins, TE: Martellus, W/T: Garcon

    • Ian Goldsmith says:

      Team 4 looks like the clear winner to me. That Wilson/Mariota combo with David Johnson and Michael Thomas is outstanding.
      Team 1 is my second choice.
      Team 2 and 3 are close, but I give the edge to 3 for third.

  45. Randy says:

    Had my draft. 10-team PPR League. Play 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, TE, FLEX
    My team.
    QB- R Wilson, P Rivers
    RB-L Bell, T Gurley, D Cook, A Abdullah, M Mack
    WR- D Bryant, K Allen, T Hill, D Moncrief, J Matthews
    TE- T Eifert, E Ebron
    DEF- Arizona

    Any concerns? Should I drop any of them?

    • Philly says:

      Mack is pretty much useless, drop him. See if guys like Jamaal Charles, Alvin Kamara or Derrick Henry are available via FA.

  46. Andy says:

    How would you rank the following WR in a keeper draft? I have a contending team right now, but I’d still like to draft with the future in mind.

    Sammy Watkins, Devonte Parker, Kelvin Benjamin, Keenan Allen, Martavis Bryant, and Demaryius Thomas

    • Chet says:

      How many keepers will you have?

      • Andy says:

        I already have the max 5 keepers from previous years. This is more so for the opening pick of my next draft and possibly the round after. I am really light on WR with only 1 WR out of 5 keepers, yet 3 WRs start each week. Stud WRs are really hard to come across in the drafts unless I select them before they breakout.

        I may have space to keep 1-2 of these new guys the following year and drop older players, all depends who performs. Ideally I want a good starter this year with some upside to keep.

  47. Orlando says:


  48. Orlando says:

    12 team ppr league. Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex, K, DST. $200 auction budget. Can keep up to 2 players. Who do you keep?
    Julio Jones – $66, Davante Parker – $14, Tyreek Hill – $14, Marshawn Lynch – $7
