    12 Team PPR: My Team: R Wilson, Rothlisberger, Antonio Brown, AJ Green, Randle, Patterson, Torrey, Spiller, R Bush, Ingram, Helu, Pierce, Olsen, Eifert, Walsh, NE D.
    With Lacy going down with a concussion, is Starks worth a pick up?

  2. Cobby says:

    Hartline or DRich in a Flex? (PPR)

    *Leaning to Hartline’s targets, but feel like DRich is going to go off.*

    • Adam Cook says:

      Richardson easily in my opinion. He is a lock for 20 touches including some catches. Hartline benefited last week from Haden shadowing Wallace.

  3. Hammer says:

    Not gonna lie, Roddy has me scared. Looks like he’ll start, but will he be a decoy again?

    So, do I start Torrey Smith over him? (Of course, I have my worries about Smith too due mostly to Joe Haden). PPR scoring.


  4. Cory says:

    PPR Flex pick 1:
    Hakeem Nicks
    David WIlson
    Joique Bell


    • Adam Cook says:

      I would lean towards Nicks. Wilson has the most upside, but he is a risk at this point. I expect the Giants to rack up a lot of yardage in garbage time similar to what they did last week against Dallas.

  5. Mrg says:

    Wait on Fitz with Michael Floyd as insurance, or play S Smith early? Sounds like Fitz will play, but worried about effectiveness

  6. Chet says:

    I’d still lean Bradshaw. Hard to know how many carries Bell gets.

  7. Tommy says:

    Joique or Bradshaw? Not a good feeling with Ahmad vs Fins defense.

2016 Fantasy Football

That Just Happened: Tight Ends (Part I)

  If you asked me immediately after the 2016 season how the tight end position had fared, I would have said it was an apocalypse and this article was going to read like the Book of Revelations. Upon further review, it really wasn’t that bad. You probably didn’t love your tight ...



  In Part I, I laced the track with a macro-level look at the running back position. Now it’s time to lock the flow with the micro view. First, a few ground rules: The goal is to contextualize 2016 performance. Briefly. What I highlight below is meant to be interesting, informative, and by ...


That Just Happened: Running Backs, Part I

THAT JUST HAPPENED: RUNNING BACKS, PART I Don’t call it a comeback, they’ve been here for years. Sure, in 2015 running backs made tears rain down like a monsoon, but in 2016 the position reclaimed its fantasy dominance.  Rocking its peers and putting suckas in fear. That’s the narrative, anyway.  No doubt David ...
