    Alright it is the play-offs……Every decision counts. I need a starter between D. Brown, J. Todman, J. Bell, Daniel Thomas and Ridley. Thanks for everything.

  2. frankie says:

    Need 1 ppr.Stacy,Andre Brown,Reggie Bush,Le’von Bell.

  3. the imp says:

    Hey Jeff, 2 questions/comments:
    1. It looks like both you and Chet have the same rankings (at WR at least) maybe that is an error?
    2. I’m reading that your PPR rankings are autopopulated. Is that true for Chet too? ECR is kind of fun, but if autopopulation is distorting everything, you’d think those guys would want to fix that. Makes a big difference in WR3/4 scrubland where I always seem to be sifting around for a 3rd starter.

    • Chet says:

      Yes, it was an error. Should be fixed now. They are auto populated. Sorry about that as well! Time constraints make it tough to do both accurately so I focus on Standard.

  4. brad says:

    Do I go with Keenan Allen or Jordy Nelson (0.5 PPR)? Ugh Thursday games.

  5. James says:

    Why isn’t Andre Ellington ranked?

  6. ROSS says:


    • Jeff says:

      ROSS, we are aware of the issue. The PPR ranks are autopopulated and we are working with fantasy pros to resolve the issue. Thanks for your understanding.

  7. Steve C says:

    Hi Jeff Need some more advice mainly b/c of inuries and uncertain status .. My RB ‘s are Vereen Locked in then Andre Bronw (w/Seattle) MJD . L.Bell and R. Jennnigs and not sure his status .. then for Flex I have one of the above left over or Mike Floyd , Amendola (does he get more value w/Gronk out) or Crabtree..Oh & btw we do paly 2 RB W 2WR 1 Flex … Right now I have Brown,,Vereen and Bell. any reason to get MJD in if he’s healthy? And Should I be a bit concerned w/Brown’s matchup w/Seahwaks or am I over thinking? thank for your input

    • Jeff says:

      I think you have the correct setup. I worry a bit about Brown’s matchup with the Seahawks but he is by far their best offensive option so you have to think he will get plenty of work.

  8. Chris says:

    1.5 te ppr need one: Gates, clay or pitta. Saw you were higher than most on all three.


  9. Chris Bradley says:

    Pick one in a 1.5 ppr: Clay, Gates, or Pitta. Saw you are higher than most on all three. Thanks.

  10. adrian says:

    murray or moreno? ppr..

  11. adrian says:

    murray or moreno?

  12. Tony 2 Times says:

    Where would Cutler be ranked if he starts? How risky would he be?

  13. Bandit says:

    Here we go. #1 seed in the semis. But I’d love your thoughts on my lineup.

    Non-PPR. Can start 2 RBS and 3 WR/TE or 1 RB and 4 WR/TE.

    I’m rolling with Stafford, Forte, Calvin and Gordon. I am trying to decide between these other players:

    C.J. Spiller
    Torrey Smith
    Jordan Cameron
    Jordy Nelson

    Basically, I just need to pick two of those. What say you?


    • Jeff says:

      I would play Torrey and Jordy. Spiller is pretty close as well but I trust Jordy with Flynn a little more than him at this point plus Jordy gets the Dallas D which is terrible. Torrey should bounce back nicely as well.

  14. emcee period says:

    Ah. Rough decision. Regular scoring except bonuses for runs/receptions over 50 yards and bonuses for total yards over 100/150/200. Not sure who to flex this week.

    M. Ball
    L. Miller
    H. Nicks
    D. Sproles
    C. Patterson

    Help? Thanks Bromar Little!

  15. Scallewag says:

    Can I start Morris with any confidence? .5 ppr FLEX: Morris, Woodhead, Joique, Starks(assuming Bush/Lacy sit).

    Dalton, Campbell, Cousins, Flynn for my QB2 spot?

    • Jeff says:

      Ya, I like Morris’ matchup this week he should be good.

      I think the matchup for Cousins is good enough to give him a shot at QB

  16. Dusty says:

    Non-ppr league. Do I flex Jordy or Spiller?

  17. AdamH says:

    Who would you go with in 1/2 PPR-Sproles or R Jennings?

  18. Mungfisher says:

    You fellers are pretty bullish on Sproles in PPR format. Not worried about limited usage and snaps? RB10 is pretty danged high.

    • Jeff says:

      totallt agreed. The “PPR” ranks are autofilled through some system fantasy pros has and sometimes they get skewed like that. He is not RB10 by any shot

  19. Johnny Kielbasa says:

    .25 PPR league

    Appreciate recommendations at Flex and streaming D:

    Do I play it safe w/ Ball on Thursday or wait out the Gerhart situation? If AP plays, I am stuck w/ Ray Rice essentially @ Flex.

    Streaming D options: Buffalo, Jax, or Houston?

    • Jeff says:

      I would wait out the Minny situation and go with Rice if AP plays. For D’s I would probably play Jax, but ask CD Carter over in the comments of Dreaming of Streaming for his expert advice.

  20. Pooty Tang says:

    No Rashad Jennings in the RB rankings?

  21. ZJG says:

    Bronocos? I just picked up the Saints to start over Denver…feelin good about that play?

  22. nate says:

    non-ppr. would you play vereen over any of these wr as my flex: bmarsh, antonio brown, keenan allen? rb1 and rb2 already set with charles and mccoy.

    also planning on playing rivers over mccown. thursday games are usually sloppy but this game could have a lot of points and the chargers playing from behind and throwing.

    • Jeff says:

      Wow your team is stacked. I like the Rivers call and I agree with your reasoning. For flex, I think I would play Vereen actually. Sounds weird, but yes!
