    Ingram or D. Wilson. PPR.

  2. Jdizz says:

    Bowe vs James jones

  3. martin says:

    Chet! I need your opinion on who to start at my flex position in week 2 in my 12 team league. R. Cobb, E. Decker, M. Bush, or J. Stewart? It’s a PPR league and I have a good feeling about Stewart considering Car had less than 10 yards last week. Do you think any of the others will have a better game than him?

  4. LakerSteve says:

    Hey Chet,
    1pt PPR – need to choose 2 WRs from this group:
    – Lance Moore (@ Car)
    – Cobb (vs Chi but looks like Jennings is out)
    – Bowe (@Buf)
    (also have Blackmon and Britt but don’t trust them)

  5. James says:

    Looking to start Ridley, Morris, or Richardson in PPR. I dont have confidence in any of them as Ridley will get his garbage yards if the Pats are up. Morris, we all dont know much about him and that whole Washington RB situation is always scary. Richardson’s knee and his debut in week 1 scared me. HELP?

  6. Jimdogg says:

    In a ppr league I was offered d.murray, mendenhall, a.hernandez for gates, jennings and m.ingram. Is that a good trade for me?

  7. Chris Dixon says:

    Brees/Cutler Murray/Ridley/TRich/Wilson/Vereen Nicks/Green/LLoyd/Cobb/Jeffrey Witten do I handcuff Felix and if so who do I drop?

  8. Sal says:

    Rank Cobb, collie, amendola, lafell for full year in ppr. Thx

  9. Adam says:

    Need 2 RB’s for my PPR league this week: Charles, Sproles, Bradshaw. Who do I sit? Thanks!

  10. Abner says:

    Which one for a BN spot for the rest of the year

    David Wilson or Jonathan Dwyer regular league

  11. Petter says:

    Which other RB:s would you trade Chris Johnson for right now? Feel like I need to unload him before he puts up another stinker. (And another…and another…)

    And what do you think about Alfred Morris, hold on or sell high rightaway?

  12. Rich says:

    Hey, I’m in a bind and need some outside input. Need to fill my 2 WR spots & RB/WR/TE spot with: Cruz, D Jackson, R. Cobb, L. Moore, or Kevin Smith. Also, Greg Olsen and Jared Cook. Which TE do you like better? thanks!

  13. ecujak says:

    Does anyone else like to Start a Kicker and RB for the same team as their Stud QB, I find myself sacrificing to pick up Stafford’s supporting cast, even when they are not the best option. Hedging my bets.

  14. ecujak says:

    How many were over zealous on David Wilson? I am always a sucker for the hot young speedsters. Good thing Kevin Smith and Ridley carried my fumble punished young stud.

    Though I didn’t see Bradshaw or Cruz get benched for fumbles or dropped/tipped passes.

  15. Abner says:

    12 PPR, currently have Jonathan Dwyer, Benie Wells & Brandon Lafell at Flex, would you use your #3 Waiver on Ogletree?

  16. Matt says:

    Hi Doc, 10-team league. .5ppr. This is my lineup:

    QB – Cam Newton
    TE – Aaron Hernandez
    WR – Megatron,Maclin,Amendola,S.Rice,T.Young
    RB – Trent Richardson, D.Martin, Kevin Smith, David Wilson, Ryan Williams, Peyton Hillis

    Little concerned with my teams start and Was offered M.Colston for T.Richardson.

    I have mixed thoughts. T-Rich has huge upside but is a rookie on a terrible team and has injury concerns. Colston is very solid, lots of targets, he doesnt have the same upside, but again, he’s real solid.

    Would you hold/decline/accept AND WHY?


  17. Scott says:

    Hey Chet, thanks for the earlier advice.

    How about tonight? Floyd or Torrey Smith?

  18. Abner says:

    You like this trade for a ppr league

    I get Steven Jackson & Pierre Garcon

    I give Maclin & Benie Wells

  19. Evan Feldman says:

    R. Williams, MJD, R. Jennings, Gerhart, Ben Tate, Spiller, or Torrey Smith? in a ppr league*

  20. Evan Feldman says:

    R. Williams, MJD, R. Jennings, Gerhart, Ben Tate, Spiller, or Torrey Smith?

  21. Tami says:

    I have T. Smith and J. Maclin available for a flex spot. Which one?

  22. NSTP says:

    I have martin, k.smith, arian, and tate. With foster hurt, what three should I start? Should I play foster anyway.

  23. Pat says:

    Flex spot, T. Smith, A. Hernandez or R. Brown?

  24. Yan says:

    Non-ppr, C.Benson or P.Garcon in flex spot?

  25. Keld says:

    Where do you have K. Smith now that his ankle is healed up?

    Also, the FLEX rankings tab is empty.

  26. Marrett says:

    PPR Flex; Spiller, M Bush, or Collie? thanks

  27. iMP says:

    Hey Chet, You seem pretty down on Young compared to most. Are you worried about a lack of targets? Would you drop Young (or Locker my QB2) for Collie off the wire (for WR4 in 3WR PPR) or wait to see Austin play first?

  28. Jay says:

    In a dynasty league do you think trading Hunter for Michael Bush is worth it?

  29. eric mcguire says:

    Would you drop royster for alfred morris? I think morris has more potential to go off

  30. Will Cannon says:

    Thank you. Quick one, I want to offer Mcgahee and Martin for Matthews. If Martin lights up Carolina this weekend, then only gonna offer him. Yay or nay.

  31. Will Cannon says:

    I understand these are mainly start/sit questions, but I have a trade question. Got offered Maclin and S. Holmes for RG3. Would be dropping K. Britt and L. Moore on my bench, with Austin in my WR2 spot. Brady is my QB. This isn’t worth it right?

    (Let me know if I should post trade questions elsewhere or not at all. Thanks.)

  32. jayhay says:

    Hey, Standard league, start 1 RB & 1 Flex: Ridley, Gerhart, Donald Brown, Blackmon, HeywardBey?

  33. Jake the snakedraft says:

    In 2 leagues and need to pick my flex:

    League 1 (PPR): R. Jennings/R. Wayne/W. McGahee/K. Wright

    League 2: P. Harvin/P. Hillis/R. Jennings/R. Wayne

    Right now I’m leaning towards Jennings in Leauge 1 and strongly leaning towards Harvin in League 2. Agree??

    I’ll be back each week probably with more questions of the same.

  34. Abner says:

    Wats good chet, Oggletree or Jean Lester for PPR 12 team?

  35. Robert says:

    Chet, talk me off the ledge…assuming Collie is/stays healthy, I’d be a fool to drop him for Ogletree, right???

  36. briand says:

    do you start lynch this week? i got lynch, f jackson sproles at flex, do i sub lynch and add torrey smith at flex instead or go with lynch? thanks chet

  37. Bazzrall says:

    So it’s a no-brainer to drop Knowshon Moreno for Vick Ballard, right?

  38. Will Cannon says:

    I have Fred Davis and Greg Olsen. Coin flip?

  39. B.o.B says:

    Hey Chet, I believe you accidentally skipped over my question a few posts up. Thanks!

  40. Craig says:

    Non-PPR – Steve Smith or Justin Blackmon for WR2? I drafted Steve Smith as my WR2 but keep getting enticed to start Blackmon over him this week because of Steve’s foot issues.

  41. Adam says:

    Hey Chet. Sproles or Bradshaw for RB2 this week? PPR league. Both have question marks: Saints have crazy amount of targets and Sproles is just back from injury. Giants’s backup Wilson scares me and makes me think he’ll steal carries away. What do you think? Thanks!

  42. Dave says:

    Romo or cutler/k smith or turbin if he starts?

  43. B.o.B says:

    I have the Giants defense but really don’t like the week 1 matchup against the Cowboys. Buffalo (@ NYJ) is available on waivers, should I drop Greg Little, Jacquizz Rodgers, Roy Helu, or even the Giants for Buffalo?

  44. Justin says:

    Hey Chet – Rashad Jennings or Torrey Smith at Flex in a 12-team standard league.

  45. Scott says:

    Hey Chet. 2 Leagues. In one Shonn Greene or Reggie Bush no PPR. In the other 1 PPR Shonn Greene or Toby Gerhart

  46. Justin says:

    Hey Chet – trust your rankings more than most. Big thanks for doin’ what you do!

    2 questions for ya today in my 12 team .5/PPR league.

    RB- I have Lynch. Need someone to pair with Foster. Do I continue to watch Lynch and start him if he goes? But he has a later game than my 3 benched backs, Donald Brown, Pierre Thomas, or CJ Spiller. Or should I start one of them over Lynch?

    TE- I have Fred Davis but could get Kyle Rudolphif I drop CJ Spiller. Do I keep Davis, pick up Rudolph too, at the cost of Spiller? Or Drop Davis for Rudolph?or stop over thinking things and stick with Davis for week 1 and beyond?

    Thanks again!

  47. Dave says:

    Would you burn the #1 waiver pick before Week 1 to grab Helu now? I’ve got DMC, SJax, K. Smith, R. Williams, and K. Hunter in a 12 team 0.25PPR league. I’d love to hold onto the pick and use it later (maybe on a QB…I’m starting Locker), but I feel like this might be too good to pass up preseason.

    If you think I should grab Helu, should I drop Hunter, Williams, LaFell, or Little?

  48. NSTP says:

    I was offered harvin, dwyer for ingram and little. Would that be a good trade for me?

  49. AdamH says:

    Better flex play, 0.5 ppr, Spiller or Santana Moss? Thanks Doc.

  50. FantasyTutor says:

    Would you drop Kendall Hunter or Taiwan Jones for Robert Turbin right now?

  51. Get Lucky says:

    PPR league +5 pt bonus if the WR goes over 100 yds. i gotta start 3: S.Smith(CAR), Decker, Blackmon, Kendall Wright, Collie, Sidney Rice.

  52. Ryan says:

    Who to start at the flex position? 12 team standard no PPR.

    Ridley, B. Tate, T. Young, or K. Wright. I’m leaning towards Ridley but I have a feeling Houston is going to crush the fins leaving the door open for Tate.

  53. Chiefin_It says:

    So I have Kevin Smith, Stevan Ridley and Nate washington and an open Rb position and Flex Position. Your Thoughts?

  54. NSTP says:

    To many teams, all starting to jumble together in my mind. Got to get organized better. My bag. I’ll try to keep my teams in check. Sorry about that. Thanks

  55. Ryan says:

    My roster locks at kickoff tomorrow night. I can start Lynch and if he doesn’t play I can have a backup kick in. Would you start Lynch and back him up with Maclin (or Dwyer?) or would you just sit him entirely and start Maclin (or Dwyer) and play other backups?

  56. mt says:

    Have R. Williams, R.Wilson, R,. Wayne on bench, should I drop any of them to pick up M. Leshoure? Thanks also for all your fantasy goodness…

  57. Sven says:

    PPR WR question -Start 2 of the following 3:

    Miles Austin, Demaryius Thomas, Torrey Smith (already starting Marshall and I can start 3 WR’s.

    Also, in a different league; 1.5 PPR, you can creatively start up to 3 TE’s (RB/WR/TE, WR/TE, & TE). I have Kyle Rudolph on my bench and was thinking of starting him for Stevie Johnson (#Revisisland), Malcolm Floyd, or Stevan Ridley. My current starting lineup in this crazy league is:

    QB Matt Ryan
    RB Doug Martin
    RB Darren Sproles
    RB/WR Malcolm Floyd
    WR Brandon Marshall
    WR AJ Green
    WR/TE Stevie Johnson
    TE Jimmie Graham
    FLEX Stefan Ridley

  58. Randy says:

    RB’s- McFadden, Lynch, Wells, K Hunter, Dwyer, Ballard, Taiwan Jones (handcuff for DMAC)
    I really like Hunter but should I offer him to the Gore owner for Turbin or wait and see how this all plays out?

  59. trick dad says:

    As a lynch owner, he has me worried. Grab turbin and drop jacquizz? Non-ppr

  60. NSTP says:

    Y collie over dem. Thomas. I’m more worried about him not finishing the game because of his concussions. I do like him but he worries me. But if I was worried about injury, i wouldn’t have drafted Vick as my qb1. I’m all in.

  61. Ed Mundo says:

    Drop Dwyer for Turbin? Mendy had a practice today.

  62. Chris says:

    TRADE: R. Jennings/K. Smith for S. Rice/D. Wilson .5PPR? Which side and how close is it?

  63. NSTP says:

    Sorry about that. I have one more for you. Ppr I need 1rb and 2 flex (wr/rb). Mcgahee, ingram, spiller, blackmon, little, collie. No misprint this time

  64. NSTP says:

    1 wr and 1 flex

  65. Pedro says:

    Cook vs pats or olsen vs bucs in a ppr?

  66. NSTP says:

    Non ppr. Need flex(wr/rb) and 2wrs. K.smith, tor. Smith, dem. Thomas, ben tate, n.washington. Collie

  67. John says:

    12 team PPR. J. Cook or Rudolph? R. jennings or Trich as my flex?

    • Chet says:

      I like Rudolph’s matchups. I’d lean Jenning right now, but if news continues to be good for TRich I could see switching.

  68. Rich says:

    Marshawn Lynch injury has me worried and I couldn’t get Turbin. I’m in a deep 14 team league and don’t know what to do. I need to fill my RB2 and flex RB/WR/TE with Lynch, K. Smith, F. Jones, Ryan Williams, R. Cobb, L. Moore, E. Royal, or Jared Cook

  69. jmkobus says:

    1 WR 1RB/WR. PPR and Return Yards
    Danny Amendola
    Trent Richardson
    CJ. Spiller
    Cedric Benson
    Evan Royster

    I am leaning Amendola and Richardson. I dont trust Benson yet, especially against the 49ers

    • Chet says:

      Still a little early to call Richardson, but he’s of course a start if he looks like he’ll play a lot. And as long as Amendola is returning punts, I agree.

  70. Jim says:

    1.5 ppr: Mike Williams(TB), LaFell or Greg Little

  71. Tim says:

    Ronnie, right? Not Donald? Since it’s not a week 1 start, wasn’t sure if you liked Lynch’s long-term health vs Mathews. Like Turbin’s upside (whatever that means) a lot more.

  72. Tim says:

    Drop any of these RBs for Turbin? D.Brown, R.Brown, M.Ingram, R.Bush. Starting J.Charles, L.McCoy and prob R.Jennings. Just a bench spot.

  73. Pedro says:

    R.Wayne in my lineup at flex in a ppr league with bonus points at 100 yds. Replace Wayne(v.bears) with benson(v.packers),alf(v.NO), or k.wright(v.pats)? Thanks

  74. BucFanFish says:

    3rd RB week one PPR, J Charles or D Martin?

  75. Tom says:

    12 team non-ppr:

    WRs: AJ Green, Colston, Bryant, Bowe
    RBs: C.Johnson, Charles, Bradshaw, Gore, Turbin

    need 3 WR, 2 RB, 2 flex

    sit who?

    • Chet says:

      I’d most likely sit Gore and Turbin unless we have rock solid info that Lynch is out, and then I’d play Turbin for Bradshaw.

  76. BostonChiliDog says:

    12 team ppr and was offered this trade today:
    Lynch (mine) for Maclin (his)
    My other RB’s:
    My other WR’s:
    A. Brown/Titus/Blackmon/Wright/Collie/S. Moss

    You and I debated Maclin and Brown on Twitter recently and I said Brown, now I can have both, what are your thoughts?

  77. Chris says:

    R. Jennings/K. Smith for S. Rice/D. Wilson .5PPR? Which side and how close is it?

  78. Nate says:

    Trade Dez Bryant to get Trent Richardson?

  79. eric McGuire says:

    Would you drop gresham for kyle Rudolph or greg olsen? Tony Gonzalez is my TE1 and I’m looking for upside.

  80. Matt says:

    Need a fill in flex while I await MJD’s return. Nate Washington or Ronnie Brown?

  81. Phil says:

    (Standard) RB2: P. Thomas or Hillis?
    W/R: S. Holmes, L. Robinson, Boldin, or whoever doesn’t make my RB2 cut?

  82. Leo says:

    Drop Benson for Turbin…two man bench…td only league. Have DMC and Hillis as my starters.

  83. Kevin Means says:

    Doug martin, Trent Richardson and Brandon Lloyd, which two do I start???

  84. Chad says:

    10-team PPR, 6pts for passing TD’s. I am weak at RB, with Bradshaw and Hillis as my starters. Been offered Cutler/Doug Martin/Ridley for Vick/Bradshaw. I have Rodgers at QB so I’m set there. What do you think?

  85. cstinso1 says:

    start two in ppr: L. Moore, Ma. Floyd, S. Rice or DHB?

  86. Max says:

    Thoughts on Hakeem Nicks’ foot, and whether I should start Antonio Brown over him this week. Thanks

  87. Mark says:

    Sorry chet, again in a ppr league again in the trade question

  88. Mark says:

    Just was proposed a trade, DeAngelo Williams and David Wilson for CJ Spiller and either (Turbin or Dwyer). Whatchya think??

  89. Mark says:

    POP quiz hotshot, with the recent news of Lynch’s back… R. Wayne or Turbin as my flex in ppr??

  90. Jesse says:

    Better PPR Flex Play: Torrey Smith or A. Bradshaw?

  91. Mark says:

    Sorry that TE flex question is a PPR league!!

  92. Mark says:

    Ok have to start a te and a flex. T.E.’s: Pettigrew, Randolph, FLEX: Wayne, CJ Spiller, Ingram, or Devone Bess

  93. Keld says:

    Would you drop Henery for Greg the Leg in a league with 30-39 (4) 40-49 (5) and 50+ (6) ?

  94. Jay says:

    Big Ben or RG3?? 6 pts for pass TD
    Blackmon or Kendall Wright? PPR
    BJGE or Dwyer??

  95. Mike says:

    Yo Chet, rather have Kendall Hunter or Jonathon Dwyer sitting on your bench? Was feeling good about Dwyer until I heard about the new on Mendenhall being back at practice.

  96. Keld says:

    Would it be difficult to add a W/R/T flex column for your rankings Chet? Thanks!

  97. Chris says:

    I am in a .5 PPR league and was offered Jimmy Graham for Jamaal Charles and Jermichael Finley. I have D. Martin to move into Charles’ starting spot and good depth behind him. Should I do this trade?

  98. Keld says:

    How much out of $100 FAAB would you spend on Mendenhall? I have McCoy, McFadden, Mathews, K. Smith in a 12 teamer. (I know, stacked). I was thinking $1, if I miss I can grab leshoure, royster, or collie for $0.

  99. Alex says:

    Hey Chet, I’ve got Rudolph and Celek. Can you convince me to go Rudolph?

  100. Robert says:

    Hey Chet…I don’t see New Orleans DEF on your rankings. Would you start them this week over Minnesota in a return yards league? (1pt/20yds, 6pts/TD).

  101. Chris says:

    Just got Pettigrew for Rashad Jennings from MJD owner in my league would you go with Pettigrew or Jared Cook in the TE spot

  102. Chris says:

    PPR standard TD scoring:
    What lineup would you go with

    WR’s: Steve Smith (Car), Julio Jones, Dez Bryant, Reggie Wayne, Danny Amendola, DHB

    RB’s: Arian Foster, Demarco Murray, Reggie Bush, Issac Redman, Rashad Jennings


  103. Banjoe says:

    PPr Flex: Mike Williams, Kendall Hunter or David Wilson? thx :)

  104. Chris says:


    In a leage where guys are wasting waiver picks every week on Defenses and I’m not wasting a pick on a defense:

    Do I go with Baltimore (who i feel isn’t the old shut down def anymore), or Dallas (who i feel has more of a total package with a good DE to compliment DWare and great LBs and Playmaker Corners)

  105. Robert says:

    Standard + Return Yards (1pt/20yds, 6pts/TD), 12-team:

    Pick one to use at Flex…Ridley, Celek, Collie, Wayne, or Benson? Also, would you dump any of those guys at this point to add Leshoure or Dwyer? I’m thinking not, but wanted to get second opinion. Thanks for all you do!

  106. Matt B says:

    Glad to have found you are writing here, wished I would have prior to my drafts this year…
    In a 12-team ppr that starts 2RB, 3WR i have Matthews as RB2 behind Ray Rice..Should I drop anyone for Ronnie Brown this week? Options are Issac Redman, J Stewart, Amendola, Meachem, Malcom Floyd, Fred Davis. Otherwise Im stuck w/ starting Redman

  107. Mikeytuna says:

    Flex question for non-ppr:
    Rashad Jennings, Kyle Rudolph, VJax or Dez Bryant? Also, would you trade Hakeem Nicks for Tony Romo? I’d be getting Romo and my only QB is Locker (I also have Julio Jones, Collie and Lloyd at WR).

    • Chet says:

      I feel good about Bryant. Tough call on Romo. He would help you for sure, but would hate to have to rely on Collie playing 16 games. I’d lean no, but keep working for a QB.

  108. douglas says:

    Dear Chet-

    NON-PPR league. With Britt and J. Simpson’s suspensions compromising my WR/Flex depth, who should I flex of the following:

    Helu @ NO, D. Wilson v. DAL, or K. Hunter @GB


    • Chet says:

      I’d lean Wilson for his big play ability. Was thinking Helu if we knew he’d be the passing down back in a game where they will pass a lot, but it’s so hard to tell with Shanny.

  109. Sully says:

    PPR Flex:
    M Bush, Peterson, Gerhart, Decker, Wayne?

    Also, big thanks for all the great info. Your rankings & tiers were the keys to my draft success.

  110. Greg says:

    I have to carry 2 TEs, I have Olsen & Witten. Would you drop one (Witten?) for Kyle Rudolph? Thanks.

    • Chet says:

      I wouldn’t. He should be reliable in that offense when he is healthy. It’s close between Olsen and Rudolph, but I like both pretty equally.

  111. tkell says:

    Starting Martin Fjax Wallace Decker need help with my flex.

    PPR start in my flex: MJD, Rashad, or D-Jax (starting Vick)?

  112. trick dad says:

    flex spot non-ppr, start Bowe, Ronnie Brown or Beanie Wells? thanks.

  113. Alex says:

    Hey chet,
    One of my leagues i got romo as qb and m.austin so i wanna move austin. My other receivers are r. white and d.thomas. Should i trade miles austin for pierre garcon and REggie wayne??

  114. Zandercage says:

    Chet –

    Pick 3, .5pt PPR – Colston, Cruz, Welker and Bowe.


  115. Brooke says:

    No PPR, have to start two RBs, who should I go with for Week 1?
    AP, Gerhart, Greene, D.Brown and Benson

  116. john says:

    .5 PPR need to start 1 flex and 2 receivers between: Jacquizz, royster, spiller, DBH, D. Moore, Titus Young, Wayne

  117. Randy says:

    PS Stokley and Hankerson are available.

  118. cockyphoenix says:

    Yo bro,

    I managed to get stuck with Freeman and Wilson in one of my leagues. I see that you’ve switched the two vs. ECR in your rankings this week. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a mancrush on Russell since I first saw him at NC State, but doesn’t Carolina’s pass D suck enough to give Freeman the nod?

  119. Vincent says:

    Need my WR3 for Week1. Choose 1: Heyward-Bey, N.Washington, Randy Moss,LaFell

  120. Jim says:

    Start 1 in 1PPR
    Antonio Brown
    Nate Washington
    DeMaryius Thomas

  121. Randy says:

    We play 1QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, and 1 WR/RB/TE.
    My team. 14 Team League

    QB- Vick, E Manning
    RB- McFadden, Lynch, Wells, K Hunter, Dwyer, Ballard, Taiwan Jones (handcuff for DMAC)
    WR- Nicks, Britt, S Moss, LaFell, S Smith(StL)
    TE- F Davis

    Which 2 are the most droppable just in case I want to add players after this weekend?
    Also should I consider trading 1 of my QB’s for a WR? I think if Britt plays well I’ll be ok.

  122. Fuzzy says:

    RB2: F. Jackson, McGahee, or Ronnie Brown?
    (1 pt / PPR)

  123. Mikey says:

    Now that Kevin Smith’s ankle looks okay, start him or SJax at RB?
    Also, which of Jacquizz, Little or Rudolph to drop for a kicker?
    Much thanks!

  124. unit says:

    antonio brown or donald brown at flex play?

    and just to make sure. harvin over downtown brown at wr2 correct?

  125. Matt says:

    I have QBs Luck and Dalton, and RBs Benson, SJax, D Martin, and Turbin.

    I’m being offered Russell Wilson for Turbin. I don’t want to take it. Should I?


  126. Travis says:

    Ronnie brown, Evan royster, or BJGE in week 1. Jon Baldwin or Robert meachem

  127. Go Ducks says:

    Do you see Donald Brown losing his starting job at any point this season?

  128. Randy says:

    Hurting at TE; should I start j cook or martellus bennett? Or look for another option in the WW?

  129. KL says:

    Brees/Colston vs. Newton/Welker — which side do you take?

  130. Bro says:

    I have Pead as cuff to Sjax, should I drop him for Dwyer or Jacquizz, or just keep Pead? std non ppr league

  131. @DavyWhite says:

    Would you trade Chris Johnson straight up for DMC? I feel like trading the two would be akin to swapping cases in Deal or No Deal.

  132. cray0300 says:

    flex: ben tate or miles austin, non-ppr

    trade trich/lloyd for rrice/lmoore? AND/OR ryan/celek for graham/ponder? .75PPR, 12-tm redraft. thx!

    it’s a qb-flex league – my other QBs are RG3 & RWilson. FYI…

  134. Go Ducks says:

    You think Dwyer can win the starting job from Mendy when he comes back?

    Ok better question
    Pretend its week 8
    The starting running back of the Steelers is _______?
    The starting running back of the Cards is _______?

  135. Oleg says:

    Doug Martin or Hakeem the Dream?

  136. Go Ducks says:

    Well shoot, I guess ill join in as well
    .5ppr league All TDs are 6 points

    Eli (Rivers)
    Chris Johnson, DeMarco Murray, Doug Martin, (Donald Brown, Ryan Williams, Jaquizz Rodgers)
    Roddy White, E. Decker, (Garcon)
    Pettigrew (K Roudolph)

    I know Im thin at WR

    Drop Jquizz or Ryan Williams for a WR upgrade?
    or drop one of them for Dwyer?

  137. Noel says:

    I have both K. Smith and D. Martin as possible flex plays, PPR. I’m leaning towards Martin, but would like to hear your thoughts. Thx.

  138. Keir says:

    I don’t have a kicker on my roster but Hartley is available. Should I drop Jacquizz Rodgers or Ryan Williams to pick him up? Thin at RB in 12 team PPR league. Lots of “upside” RBs on my team (Dwyer is available).

    Full team: P Manning, Nicks, A Brown, Decker, Britt, A Hernandez, A Gates, D. Martin, R. Jennings, Benson, Ridley, J. Rodgers, R. Williams, B. Tate, SEA

    Starting Line Up: QB, RB, RB WR, WR, TE, W/R/T, K, DEF

    P.S. I’ve spent the day talking myself out of dropping a RB for Russell Wilson to hedge against Manning not returning to at least 90% of his previous self.

  139. Chris says:

    My bench RBs are D. Brown, D. Martin, B. Tate, R. Jennings, K. Smith and C. Benson. I need to drop one for a defense. Dwyer is also on the waiver wire. Who should I drop for the defense, and is Dwyer a good enough pick up to drop another? Thanks!

  140. Adam R says:

    Working on my RB bench, starting Martin, McCoy….BN has K.Hunter, K.Smith, P.Hillis J.Charles, Mikel LeShoure….would you drop Mikel & Hunter for Dwyer and TE Rudolph, have JGraham already slotted for my starting TE? Thx!!

  141. Jarviz James says:

    Would you trade Doug Martin for Julio Lones in ppr? My other starters are DMC, Murray, Harvin, and Decker. Appreciate your witty articles and any help would be most appreciated.

  142. Joseph says:

    Which 3 WRs would you start in standard scoring, non-ppr?

    Andre Johnson, Miles Austin, Bowe, DHB?

  143. Joseph says:

    Which 2 backs would you start this week in standard scoring, non-ppr?

    MJD, T. Richardson, D. Williams, Beanie Wells, Alfred Morris, E. Royster, Kendall Hunter

  144. Jon says:

    I have rivers and am worried about his lt being out. My backup is locker, but I was wondering if you think Schaub would be better?

  145. Tommy says:

    Hey there… Cutler or Ryan this week? Seems Cutler has a better match up.

  146. Rb says:

    Drop Ryan Williams or rashad Jennings for a kicker? Other rbs are dmc, martin, Ridley, and mathews. Is it worth it to drop one for dwyer?

  147. @DavyWhite says:

    Hey Chet, need some help. NON-PPR, standard scoring. Donald Brown vs. the Bears or Torrey Smith against the Bengals?

  148. John says:

    Are you buying the hype of Ryan Williams this year if he stays healthy

  149. Keld says:

    Non PPR std scoring who do I flex?

    K. Smith or Stevie Johnson?

    Starting RBs McCoy, McFadden, WRs Julio, Maclin.

  150. Who would u start trichardson or dhb week 1

  151. nick says:

    Ppr flex. Cj Spiller or David Wilson?

  152. Jake says:

    Week 1
    Non ppr d. Martin or Torrey smith

    Non ppr Olsen or fre Davis

  153. Marcus says:

    Can I get your thinking on Rudolph at 7? I want to be as confident as you with that ranking.

  154. craig says:

    Ksmith,gerhart,rjennings or rwilliams in ppr league? Need one.

  155. Alan says:

    Start 3:
    Andre Johnson
    Percy Harvin
    Dwayne Bowe
    Torrey Smith

  156. Marq says:

    D. Thomas or Richardson in the flex?

  157. Fence says:

    Kendall Hunter or Randall Cobb in Week 1? Hernandez (assuming healthy) or Kyle Rudolph? Both 1PPR

  158. Tommy says:

    Maybe crazy, but any way you would start D Williams over Lynch this week as he may have opportunity if J Stewart sits out. Just need to keep an eye on Lynch’s back to see if he’s limited.

  159. Bret says:

    Chet, do you like earl bennet or titus young this week?

  160. Alex says:

    So I have two questions, and it’s best if you see my roster first. 10 team, standard scoring, non-ppr.

    QB: Vick
    RB: McFadden, Forte
    WR: Marshall, Andre Johnson, Miles Austin
    TE: Pettigrew
    Bench: Rivers, Doug Martin, BJGE, Crabtree, Sidney Rice, Olsen

    I feel like I have major major major RB depth, and I’d like to use that to trade my way to better WR depth. What WR do you think fair value is for Doug Martin? I know I could get Lloyd for him, but from rankings I see, it seems like I should strive for more, but gauging interest around the league, I don’t know if I could get more than that, and maybe I should just hang on to him. What are your thoughts there?

    And secondly, a situation could come up that I could get Lloyd for Rivers instead, is that smart since I have the injury prone Vick at QB, if my best FA backup QB options are Carson Palmer or Russell Wilson?

    Thanks for the advice.

  161. dave f says:

    Won’t need R. Jennings early so was wondering if I should stash Dwyer over him. PPR league. Thanks

  162. MikeA says:

    is it worth picking up dwyer? ppr league; who should i drop for him: helu, jacquizz, meachem, or m. williams? thanks.

  163. Nathan says:

    .5 ppr need to start one wr an one flex
    R. Jennings
    Ryan Williams
    Stevie Johnson

  164. Alex says:

    Rank these TE: Fred Davis, Kyle Rudolph, and Jared cook

    Thanks Chet

  165. Adam says:

    Or Kendall wright?

  166. Adam says:

    Little, Collie, or Gerhart 1/2 ppr league

  167. Grant says:

    Ingram or T Rich as a flex? Concerned that Ingram / Rich’s workloads will be similar in terms of volume and Ingram is on better offense.

    • Chet says:

      Really depends on how much TRich practices this week. If he doesn’t have swelling after today’s practice I like TRich more.

  168. Marcus says:

    Titus Young or Austin Collie .5 PPR Return League with 1pt for 25 yards.

  169. james says:

    who do you like more this year mathews or mjd? standard league

  170. Randy says:

    Which QB to start? Scoring is 1 pt for 25 passing yds, 4 pts for passing TDs, 1 pt for 10 rushing yds, 6 pts for rushing TDs.
    M Vick or E Manning?

  171. Tommy says:

    Thanks man!

  172. Tommy says:

    Hi there, Lloyd, Decker or T Smith as wr2? Using D Martin as my flex.

    • Chet says:

      Between Lloyd and Smith for me. And this question just prompted me to move Smith above Lloyd. I like Lloyd more, but want to make sure him and Brady on our the same page first. Smith has looked great in preseason.

  173. Rceazey says:

    Right on! Thanks a lot!

  174. Rceazey says:

    PPR: Start 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 Flex (RB/WR/TE): Sproles, Martin, K. Smith, R. Jennings, Antonio Brown, T. Smith, Marshall, Little. Appreciate it as always!

  175. Costa says:

    No ppr: pick 1 LaFell or Hillis at flex? I have Reggie Wayne and D Thomas too, but I kind of thought it’d be best to sit on them week 1 to see how they do with new QBs.

    Also, I’ve got Lynch and Turbin, any idea on whether or not Lynch will play? And if he doesn’t should I play Turbin? My other RBs are Tate, Hillis, Hillman (Have Chris Johnson starting my RB1 spot)

    • Chet says:

      Hillis would be my choice of those two. I’m pretty sure Lynch will play. Keep an eye on it, but all signs are that he will go so far. If we know for sure he won’t go I’d feel good about starting Turbin though.

  176. Saucy says:

    Hey Chet,
    12-team PPR – I need a flex play out of Davone Bess, Cedric Benson, and Dexter McCluster. Which one? Thanks.

  177. Dave says:

    Gerhart (if AP is out) or Ridley? PPR league

  178. Mtzkn says:

    Hey Chet,

    please pick 2 out of these 4 (gotta fill 1 RB and 1 flex spot)

    E. Decker / D. Brown / J. Dwyer / CJ Spiller

  179. Aaron says:

    14 team PPR need a RB2 and a flex

    N Washington
    Kevin smith
    Greg little

  180. Adam R says:

    Having a tough one on D.Martin or J.Charles?

    Also Malcolm Floyd or Decker week 1?

  181. El guey says:

    Standard lg 16tm

  182. PG says:

    Pick 3:
    Jeremy Maclin
    CJ Spiller
    Antonio Brown
    Alshon Jeffrey
    Lance Moore

  183. El guey says:

    Start one in flex: Meacham, Lloyd, a. Morris, quizz or streater

  184. JP says:

    Better flex play: DHB or Donald Brown?


  185. Eric says:

    Start RGIII or R Wilson this week? Have McCoy/Murray/TSmith/JuiloJ/Harvin/Hernandez going so I should still rack up points.

  186. AaRon says:

    Sproles or K. smith in ppr league?

  187. jason says:

    Start 3 (PPR):
    Greg Jennings
    Dez Bryant
    Antonio Brown
    Nate Washington
    Jeremy Maclin
    Peyton Hillis

  188. Nate says:

    Great to see the rankings out early. Not sure if it was on purpose but Ponder is the only missing starter.
