    .5 Ppr: 2 wr and 1 flex spot. Keenan Allen, Bowe, Randle, Stevie J, MJD, Rueben Randle.

    Also if Julius THomas isnt playing, You got a sneaky TE pickup??

      I like Allen and Stevie at the WR spots and probably MJD at flex.

      Is John Carlson available? He would be decent play with Julius expected to sit.

  4. Scott says:

    PPR, need a QB and Q/W/R/T flex between Luck, Alex Smith, Stacy and K. Allen. Thanks.

  5. Matt says:

    or Mendenhall

  6. Matt says:

    Would you go w/ Donald Brown at RB2 in a ppr over Knowshon Moreno? DB getting the start, obviously worried about Moreno’s use this week. Thanks
