  3. Norman says:

    With Gio getting the start, should I start R Mathews over Hill as my RB2?

  4. Marc says:

    PPR league

    Need to pick 4 from the following list. Need to pick at least 1 RB and 1 WR:

    Cj Anderson
    Reggie bush
    Giovani Bernard
    Anquon Boldin
    Kendall wright


  7. RB says:

    RIddick or Sankey (half ppr)

    Also Morris, blue, joique need 2 of 3 (half ppr)

    Thank you

  8. David Vest says:

    Continued thanks for all your opinions. non ppr: 1) Fleener or donnell? Both close everywhere I look. 2) Best 2 flex options: Sanu,LaFell,Crowell or J.Gordon? 3) Still like Stafford over: Tannehill,MGown or Sanchez? 5-6 and still in mix for playoff spot so taking a chance here on anyone for more points not out of question. Thanks a lot.

  9. Zach says:

    Love this, Jeff! I’m right on the fence in full pt PPR between Hill and Vereen…

  10. Steve C says:

    Hi Jeff thanx for the great advice so far. I’m fighting for p/o spot need 1 win to really help. So PPR Roster advice . I have Shady and Crowell at RB and with Antonio on bye Starting Gordon and Wallace at WR.. So 2 Questions for my team. Need a flex from Gio, Vereen Mathews, or Roob .. Part 2 of my dilemma is Not sure what Cincy’s RB plan will be So, being I probably won’t be using Roob as a starter ..J.Hill was dropped and on WW … Would it be a wise move to Drop Roob for Hill? I really don’t like the “2RB from same team” idea, BUT in this case is it good till we see how it plays out? and if so does he come into the “Flex” plan? Thanx as Always

    • Jeff says:

      I think picking up Hill would be a solid idea, but I would roll with Vereen at flex this week. Tough DET front should make for more passing work for him.

  11. b-Real says:

    Who should I start in my flex in a standard league between d. Baldwin, Kenny stills, lataviuis Murray, Fred Jackson, and Crabtree?


  12. Andy says:

    I notice Arian Foster’s name absent from these lists. If he plays, he’s gotta be top 10, right? I’m in a PPR league, but that shouldn’t matter should it?

  13. antwinem says:

    RB2…Lamar Miller, Joique Bell, or Bishop Sankey? (not PPR).

  14. steve says:

    Curious on the denard robinson rankings you have him 13 rb? And then 42 wr? How does this work I play yahoo and can use him I’m either slot ?

    • Jeff says:

      Its a little goofy with ranking him at both spots, but he is definitely worth starting at either RB or WR this week.

    • steve says:

      Curious on the denard robinson rankings you have him 13 rb? And then 42 wr? How does this work I play yahoo and can use him I’m either slot ?

      I just don’t get why he’s so low at wr and so high at rb that’s all I’m starting him as a wr … and who wouldn’t if you have two other good rbs .. he should be much higher in the wr rankings list I’d start him over plenty of wrs? ?
