    Need 1 for Flex in .5 PPR
    Vereen/Landry/C. Johnson(Minn)/Moncrief

    Playing against Luck if that boosts Moncrief any

  2. Andy says:

    Does Lacy’s situation make you uncomfortable at all? I’ve got Crowell and J.Hill that I could play. PPR.

  3. Banjoe says:

    Hi Jeff ..Sorry One more Crowell Flex Question..I’m still comfortable with him as my PPR Flex but in a tough matchup this week I got my work cut out this week (I’m going up against Charles, L.Bell, ODB, Sanders).. I’m still stating Matt Ryan.. So If Julio is OUT where would you Rank Harry Douglas? Would if be worth even thinking of Flexing him instead of Crowell? He seems to always come up big if ATL has one of their big guns out? Thanx again and a tip of the hat to all the staff at TFB for some Great calls and Advice thru the year . I appreciate you’s helping with some tough calls this season! ☺☺

    • Jeff says:

      Thanks for reading Banjoe and good luck in your matchups. With the Julio news, I moved Douglas up to the mid-20’s at WR. I’d probably still lean Crowell’s way but its pretty close now.

  4. DAVID S says:


    • Jeff says:

      I like Indy D this week, and I have FJax one spot higher than Ingram so that one is pretty close. Good matchup for Ingram though. And I would play ben at QB. Good luck!

  5. Mike says:

    With the Julio and Lacy injuries my life got complicated. Need one RB2, one WR2 and a flex from The following: Lacy, L Murray, J Matthews, H Douglas, Julio Jones, P Harvin and D Moncrief (If Wayne sits). Was thinking Murray, Lacy and Matthews. Is That The right call? Thanks for your advise and time.

    • Jeff says:

      L. Murray, J. Matthews and Douglas for me. I don’t want to have the chance of getting hosed by an injury in the playoffs.

  6. Imp says:

    Own Forte, Joique, Tre, and Mathews. Looking to week 16 where I start 2 with no flex and PPR. Im not sure Mathews would be trustworthy barring 2 RBs injuries this week. Would you drop Mathews for any of these RBs : Herron, Carey (forte handcuff), Starks or Knile (given health or their starters)?

  7. B-Real says:

    I am in a standard league and need to start 2 wrs. I have Jordan Matthews, Kenny stills, Vincent Jackson, Michael Crabtree? Also who do you like better at TE? Kelce or Jordan reed? Thanks.

  8. David Vest says:

    Jeff: Just when my lineup is set with R.Jennings at flex news comes it’ll be the dreaded “Hot hand” in NYG’s backfield. So in a non ppr still roll with Jennings or: A.Williams,FJax,Lafell,Edelman or Starks(if Lacy is a no go)? Could also use Donnell at TE and J.Reed at flex but that seems like a last resort here. Thanks

  9. Steve C says:

    PPR Flex Question Right now I have Cowell But Grabbed Starks whe I hear about Lacy. IF Lacy IS Out would you swap Straks for Crowell? I Just keep seeing how GB Utilizes their RB either via Run Or Pass so efffectivley made me think who is the better choice? (obioulsy keeping Crowell in if Lacy is a go) Thanx as always for your advice

  10. Jmo says:

    pick 3: ingram j hill j bell crowell f jackson

  11. Wilsonian says:

    I need some help at flex and who to play if Julio is out. These are my options for Julio’s sub and at flex:

    Charles Johnson

    0.5 PPR – 3 point bonus at 85 yards rec/100 yards rush – 6 point bonus at 135 yards rec/150 yards rush

    For what it’s worth, I’m leaning Matthews at flex and if Julio’s out, either Stills or FJax in at flex with Matthews at WR.

  12. Banjoe says:

    I have a tough semi final matchup .PPR. I feel OK with Ryan, Antonio,, Shady DET Def, and Hope for a J.Gordon Breakout.. and I should start Kece over Cameron>Yes? But going against Charles, L.Bell, Sanders, ODB . I need help with my Flex. I could go safe with J Hill .but my other choices aren’t the “Home Run” quality , Gio, Mathews, Wallace or I did pcik up Marquess, Wilson..Wat is your opinion on Him in his first stat for Marshall? I Honestly have Not heard much about him other than good Potential….WW has Marquis Lee ,or Cjarles Johnson against a Tough Det. DST.? do I play safe and Hope Hill comes thru or Dare I use Wilson? Thanx Jeff You’ve given some Great Advice to get me this far!

    • Jeff says:

      Hill is good to go this week. Cincy came out and said they wanna lean on him more, so definitely use him this week. At TE, I’d lean Cameron’s way this week. Good luck!

  13. ok says:

    great site thanks for the tips!!

    0.5ppr what do you think about bryant @ ATL’s terrible secondary or vjax @ CAR also fairly terrible secondary?

    bad wk for streaming d’s in one league.. nyj @ten, ten vs nyj, den @sd?

    great wk in another but tough choice stl vs ari or bal vs jax?


  14. Andy says:

    Just curious why you’ve got Crowell so low against a bad Cincy run D. Do you think Manziel will take some red zone rushing TDs away from him?

    So you like Watkins over Crowell in a PPR?
    Also, help sell me on starting Tannehill against NE. I’ve got McCown and Fitz as well.

    • Jeff says:

      The West involvement is what gives me a tiny bit of hesitation with Crowell. I’d lean Sammy’s way a bit in PPR. At QB, I think Tannehill will bounce back this week. Some touchdown regression is due for him and those other twp options have lower floors I think.

  15. Josh says:

    I’ve got some decisions to make at the RB position. DeMarco is an obvious lock. I now have two positions left to choose between Rashad Jennings, Alfred Morris, Jeremy Hill and Joique Bell.
    At WR/TE flex I’m choosing between Martellus Bennett and Anqoin Boldin. I’m leaning towards Martellus here.
    PPR league.


  16. David Vest says:

    Just a follow up on previous comment. 1) I’m in a non ppr 2) T.Coughlin says R.Jennings SHOULD get a lot more work week 15. Depends on what a lot is. I own A.Williams too which was a gift last week. 3) I’m starting J.Gordon,Evans and TY at WR. I’m seeing S.Watkins might be a very good flex option this week and I have FJax also. My starting RB’s are: J.Charles & Crowell at RB2. 4) So I’m left with these flex choices: Jennings or A.Williams(depending on further Jennings news), Watkins,FJax,Edelman,Lafell. BTW I added J.Starks just in case lacy’s injury becomes an issue. Right now I have as flex’s: Watkins and Jennings. Have some good choices but would you consider any changes now? Thanks for all your opinions.

    • Jeff says:

      I think I would flex Watkins unless news comes out of NYG this week that Jennings will get a huge workload. I’d rather roll the dice with Watkins.

      • David Vest says:

        Thanks! I had Watkins penciled in as flex#1. We use 2 flex spots so any thought on Flex#2? Jennings if reports are positive or one of the others? Also if Lacy is a no go(probably will play) thoughts on Starks at flex @ Bills?

    • Jeff says:

      I think Jennings seems safer this week right now, I’d use him at flex2
