(I Know Miles isn’t the obvious choice but has owned the G-Men)

  21. Mike says:

    DHB (vs Raiders) Little (vs Dolphins) or Gio (@ Bears) for FLEX? Standard league

    PPR gotta pick 2 of the 3 as WR3/Flex, Mike Williams, Kenbrell Thompkins, Lance Moore. Thanks a lot.

    PPR FLEX: Lamar Miller or Mike Williams? I see them as being close but I usually default to RB.

  26. Michael says:

    Given the news of CB Brandon Browner being out for Seattle (as well as DE Cliff Avril), which of these two trios do you prefer:

    Cam Newton/J Cameron/Colts D
    Kaepernick/Sufeld/Bucs D

    Std. Scoring league. I’m trying to decide WR3 between G.Jennings, Chris Givens and K. Thompkins. I want to start Thompkins but does it mattet that I also have Vereen and Ridley starting?

    • Chet says:

      It’s not ideal I suppose, but I do like him. I also feel good about Givens if you want to diversify, but I’d probably roll with the Pats squad.
