    12 Team PPR, 8-2, My Team: R Wilson, Rivers, AJ Green, Antonio Brown, Torrey, Percy, M Crabtree, R Bush, Spiller, Andre Brown, Ellington, B Tate, Olsen, Walsh, AZ D, NE D. Should I trade Olsen/B Tate for Fleener/Woodhead? His team Keenum, Decker, Cruz, Woodhead, Sproles, J Thomas, Amendola, TRich, Flynn, Helu, Mendy, Brady, Streater, Fleener.

  2. Scott says:

    Jeff, in your avatar, are you the one on the left or the right?

    More to the point, would you FLEX Pierre Thomas, Lamar Miller, or Riley Cooper?

    Standard league.

  3. Matt B says:

    Which DST in a league that heavily rewards low Yards Allowed: Lions @ PIT (horrible weather, PIT line injuries so sacks?) or Packers @ NYG?

    Also for today QB Glennon or QB McCown (awful weather/wind, delays?)


  4. Jermichael says:

    With Harvin predicted to play more than 15 snaps & not on a snap count. Should I flex him over Torrey?

    • Jeff says:

      I would probably play Smith still but its close now if these reports by Mortenson are indeed true. Weather and Harvin’s snap count are impossible to predict really so I would say go with your gut. I would probably gamble on Harvin but its a toss up

  5. Alex says:

    PPR: Percy or DHopkins?

    • Jeff says:

      This is really difficult with the mystery surrounding Harvin’s usage. If you’re a gambler roll with Harvin, but if you want the safe play Hopkins is your man as he has a nice matchup. I tend to be more risky myself in these scenarios but I wouldnt fault you for playing Hopkins.

  6. Steak says:

    Big ole week! Standard league: RB and FLEX spot. Harvin, SJAX, Spiller, Rainey, Emmanuel Sanders

    .5 PPR: 2 WR and 1 FLEX: NIcks, Bowe, Sproles, Rainey, MJD, Keenan Allen, Rueben Randle.

    THanks for the help!

  7. Mountain Face says:

    Make or break this week! Standard league: RB and FLEX spot. Harvin, SJAX, Spiller, Rainey, Emmanuel Sanders

    .5 PPR: 2 WR and 1 FLEX: NIcks, Bowe, Sproles, Rainey, MJD, Keenan Allen, Rueben Randle.


  8. Andy says:

    Also…Do you like Detroit as a streaming option this week with the weather in Pittsburgh today?

  9. Jermichael says:

    12 Team PPR, should I flex B Tate, Ellington, Spiller or Harvin? Also R Wilson or Rivers?

  10. frank says:

    Reed or Thomas? Ppr

  11. Andy says:

    PPR flex: Lamar Miller, Marlon Brown, Tim Wright, or Michael Floyd?

  12. Jon says:

    Must win: PPR, spiller, Lamar miller or vereen? Additionally, given weather should i sub out either Jeffery or Gordon for rishard Matthews?

    • Jeff says:

      We have Spiller just slightly ahead of Miller, so I would go with him. There should be plenty of carries to go around in Buff with the wind today. At WR, I think I would stick with Jeffery/Gordon

The Curious Case of Darren Sproles

Mock Draft In Minutes with the Mock Draft Simulator! It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when Darren Sproles became forsaken by the fantasy football world.  No matter the exact moment, when draft season rolls around every year, people magically forget that he is a high-performance Tank and drop him off at the scrap yard to rust.

Fantasy Equity Scores: The ‘Why Not’ Tight End Candidates

Many tight ends taken in the waning rounds of a fantasy draft will fly off and on the waiver wire as tight end streamers devolve into climbing-on-the-walls tilt, desperate for a streamer, begging any deity to grant them sweet, sweet clarity. That doesn’t mean that this tight end tier should ...


Fantasy Equity Scores: Tight End Floors to Fade, Ceilings to Chase

Mock Draft In Minutes with the Mock Draft Simulator!   I tried for years, in total and complete vain, to crack the tight end code. Breaking down tight end production per target, per snap, per route run, per egg eaten on game day — none of it whispered the sweet secret. It offered ...
