    Which 3 of these would you play: Gronk, Kelce, Jeremy Hill, Markus Wheaton, Torrey Smith, Montee Ball, Reuben Randle, ASJ? Thanks! Mooooo

  2. B-Real says:

    In another league, I have to decide between Roddy White , F. Jackson and L. Taliaferro in the flex. Which do you like?


  3. Randy says:

    Who do you like most ROS at QB out of Palmer, Bridgewater, and Cousins? Also, can you rank the following in a standard league in terms of who has the greatest chance to emerge as a significant contributor and/or fantasy starter ROS? Rueben Randle, Allen Robinson, Jordan Matthews, Justin Hunter, and Dobson (if Pats finally start to use him). Thanks!

  4. Aaron says:

    bradshaw or foster? Ppr. Thx.

  6. B-Real says:

    Who should I start in the flex between A. Foster, I. Crowell and Michael Floyd?


  7. Steve C says:

    Sorry forgot one more 10 Team PPR ROS Terrence Williams or drop and pick up ROOB? Thx

  8. Steve C says:

    I was OK till i saw how close the Ranks are in PPR .So if I start ROOB over TWIll I need to Flex from T Williams, FJax, Vereen (Would Be my obvious choice but I get Chills with the Pats and Belichick with Whom to trust?) I also have Sankey and been reading a LOT of Hype for him?? THEN b/c of Matchup I was gonna start Cameron over Kelce? but You have Kelce Higher in a tougher Opponent? Luv to hear YOUR advice for this ..Thanx Jeff :)))

    • Jeff says:

      I’d play Rueben then T. Williams at flex probably. I also think Sankey should be solid this week. Lots of hype but his workload is increasing. And I prefer Kelce because I am not the biggest Cameron fan out there but you could make a case for either. I’d lean Kelce personally.

      And then ROS I think Williams and Randle are very close but I’d lean slightly toward Randle.

  9. football says:

    Would you trade Andrew Hawkins for Cordarelle? Half pt ppr. This would have seemed like a no brainer to start the season, but cordarelle has been awul since week 1

    thank you

    • Jeff says:

      Hawkins is probably a bench type for you I am assuming, so ya I think I’d pull the trigger and hope Patterson gets rolling

  10. Bandit says:

    My team in a optional 3 RB -1 WR -1 TE, 2 RB – 3 WR, or 1 RB – 4 WR formation league:

    10-team, standard, 1 point for every 10 yards both Rush,Rec, 6-point TDs.

    Starters: Ryan, Gore, A.J. Green, Jordy, Golden Tate, Cameron
    Bench: AP, Joique, Ingram, McKinnon, Taliaferro, Colston, Josh Gordon

    Been offered Forte and Patterson for A.J. Green and Gore.

    What say you?

  11. Norman says:

    12 Team PPR, would you actually start Cameron over Donnell this week? Sankey over J Hill as my RB2? R Randle or Royal as my Flex2?

  12. Zach says:

    Do I weather the storm with the Panther defense or start streaming week to week? Concerned… Eagles, 49ers, Browns available this week. Go with Browns going forward?
