    Have you considered moving Robinson up in the WR ranks with lee sitting? I’m thinking about starting him over Gerhart and Torrey

  2. Steve C says:

    I studied the Ranks .. that Start/Sit Advice with Ryan and Kaep. ALL point to Matty Ice.. But is Kaep THE Play to start Sunday? I’m i a tight first place match to help a Little cushion to the Playoffs ? thanx Jeff

  3. Steven says:

    Got a new trade offer Julio jones and Arian Foster receive Julius Thomas and Matt Forte???
    QB Nick Files
    RB Eddie Lacy
    RB Arian Foster
    WR Julio Jones
    WR Michael Crabtree
    WR Vincent Jackson
    TE Charles Clay

    BENCH: Eric Decker , Kelvin Benjamin , Steven Jackson , Shane Vereen , D’Angelo Williams , Pierre Thomas

    What do you think? ??

    • Jeff says:

      The Foster injury situation makes it difficult of course. I think I would give it a week. If Foster gets back healthy and playing I think you’re giving up too much here. If dont want to deal with Foster’s questionable tag all season I guess you cvould pull the trigger and take Forte. Close one.

  4. Noah says:

    Jennings or Charles in .5 PPR?

  5. Alfonso says:

    Would you rank Torrey Smith, Golden Tate, and Cecil Shorts going forward in PPR?

    Got two decisions to make involving the three of them.


  6. cow says:


    Should I drop Cecil Shorts, Torrey Smith or Alfred Blue to pick up Rueben Randle?

  7. Danny G says:

    I’m deep at RB – McCoy, Jennings, Bradshaw, Vereen… Thin at WR – A. Brown, Michael Floyd..
    Should I accept Cobb and Matthews for Jennings?

  8. week 4 says:

    What do you see Joique doing against the Jets? They have been brutal against the run and the lions are starting to use Reggie more and more. Im really debating starting Sjax over him but i see you have ranked Joique much higher

    thank you

    • Jeff says:

      Tough matchup for Joique for sure. I think its more of a product of SJax not looking very solid so far this year and the fact that Joique is more involved in the passing game.

  9. Phil says:

    Bortles or Bridgewater worth a stash this week, if my current backup is Tannehill?

  10. Frankie says:

    I’m a little thin at rb.I just picked up Deangelo Williams,and have Mckinnon as well.With byes starting this week does it make more sense to drop Seattle D,Mckinnon or D-Will?

  11. Steve C says:

    Hey Guys thanx for your help Both PPR ..Team 1 have McCoy & D.Brown at RB so Flex is btween FJax or Vereen (I would Normally NO Brainer w/Vereen but con’t know if I can trust his touches w/Belickick?
    Team @ If Charles is IN My choice for RB, 1 WR and a Flex
    K. Benjamin? I keep Flip Flopping so appreciate your advice THANX

  12. Norman says:

    12 Team PPR, R Wilson, Kaep, Dez, Roddy, D martin, Sankey, Donnell, Hopkins, Wayne, Randle, Rainey, Cameron, J Hill, R Mathews. I proposed Wayne for Lamar to 1 team, haven’t heard back yet. I proposed Hopkins for Vereen with another team & he’s willing to trade. Should I wait to see if Wayne for Lamar is accepted before agreeing to Hopkins for Vereen?

  13. JP says:

    Hi Guys,

    Would you drop A. Peterson in a 12-tm league with 5 bench spots? That roster spot is really limiting my flexibility and I haven’t heard any news. What is your expectation of a potential return?



    • Jeff says:

      I have zero information to base an opinion on in the AP situation. I would probably cut him but its very risky. I have no clue what will happen but it doesnt feel like he will be back any time soon.

  14. Steven says:

    Got a trade offer Jamaal Charles and Martellus Bennet for Julio Jones
    QB Nick Files
    RB Eddie Lacy
    RB Arian Foster
    WR Julio Jones
    WR Michael Crabtree
    WR Vincent Jackson
    TE Charles Clay

    BENCH: Eric Decker, Kelvin Benjamin, Steven Jackson, Shane Vereen, D’Angelo Williams, Pierre Thomas

    What do you think? ??

    • Jeff says:

      I don’t think I would take it. With no flex and only 2 RB spots, I dont think you’re getting enough of an upgrade over your two current starting backs.
