  2. Zandercage says:

  3. marc says:

    Appreciate it!

  4. marc says:

    Thanx for the reply. Another Q: start 3 wr, 1rb/wr; Fitz, Andre Johnson, Torrey, maclin, V Jax, Bradshaw, S Jax, F Jax. Thanx

  5. Adam says:

    Need to start 1 of these guys at FLEX this week due to BYEs…+1 PPR

    Greene vs IND, Burleson @ PHI, Bess vs PHI, Heyward-Bey @ ATL

    If it makes any difference, I’m lookin more for the safest bet for 10-12 pts, rather than the 20+ pt home run potential.

  6. Ryan says:

    trying to find a filler for Graham….Pita, Fleener, Tamme, Dreessen?

  7. Steve C. says:

    I have Ariz. Def.. Do u see a Big difference in Fantasy Pts to drop them for the Pats? The only reason I ask is b/c being that I Do Stream…Pats next 2 games are Jets and Rams. Whereas Ariz has Minn, GB & SF… Ur Opinion?? thanx

    • Jeff says:

      No, I don’t see too big of a difference. Go ahead and make that move if you like the way it sets up in the next few weeks.

  8. marc says:

    What up Jeff! Q; Trade my Romo, or Murray for his Cam? He’s also got Mike Vick on the trading block. I still have chalres and rice, w Quizz and J Stew on my bench. In a 1qb, 1qb/wr/rb/te, 2rb, 3wr, 1wr/rb league, my other qbs are Locker and Hasselbeck. Thanx

  9. Dee says:

    Jeff I need trade advice:
    In a PPR should I trade A. Hernandez and Doug Martin to get Jimmy Graham? Leaves me with CJnoK, Ray Rice, T. Richardson, Alex Green and Willaim Powell at RB.
    Thanks for any help, just a tough decision.

    • Jeff says:

      I think thats a decent deal for you, given your depth at RB. Hernandez is no slouch, but I think you can afford to lose Martin to upgrade to Graham. Hopefully Jimmy uses the bye week wisely to rest that ankle!

  10. Juan says:

    Should I consider starting Ballard @ Jets over Lynch vs Patriots?

  11. Banjoe says:

    2 PPR Teams With health concerns about Hernandez,Team 1: Need 2 (TE,&Flex) Hernandez, Rudolph, Mike Williams, or Avery..Basically do u trust AHern If he suits up?
    Team 2 is a pickle.. I have AHern and Bennett. Both afternoon games so do I wait and if they’re both out drop Bennett for Fred Davis off the ww .Literally Have No One to drop…Lowest ranked player on my team is Maclin? thanx

    • Jeff says:

      Team1: With another TE like Rudolph who has a nice matchup, I’d just start him and not chance it. Then start Avery at flex.

      Team2: I would do exactly as you said, and wait for the afternoon game announcements. If BOTH are declared inactive, drop Bennett for Davis and throw him in your lineup. You won’t miss Bennett too bad if you’ve got Hernandez the rest of the way.

  12. Ruxin says:

    Play J. Cook tonight or hope A. Hernandez suits up on Sunday? No real options at TE left in FA, so if Hernandez sits, I’m SOL.

  13. chris says:

    Donald Brown really hasn’t been that spectacular this year. Would you consider dropping him for Vick Ballard incase Ballard really shines or Brown’s surgery keeps him out longer than we think?

  14. B-Real says:

    Also, are liking stevie johnson, andrew hawkins or fred jackson as a flex play. I am already starting spiller as my rb2.


  15. B-Real says:

    I need a wr between desean J, james jones or kenny britt?


  16. yishai says:

    start stevie johnson or andrew hawkins?

  17. Alex says:

    Need 2 in a standard scoring league: Randall Cobb (@Hou), Kenny Britt (Pit), Andrew Hawkins (@Cle), Vick Ballard (@NYJ). Help!?

  18. Aaron says:

    Hi Jeff! PPR league:

    T. Smith or Ballard in flex?

    Eli or Vick at QB?

  19. Ant says:

    Looking to upgrade my team.Was just offered a Tom Brady for Cruz and Spiller, thinking its a little too much. Heres my team

    Qb: Romo
    RB: Forte
    WR: Jul. Jone
    TE: A.HErnandez
    FLex: T. Smith
    BEnch: Luck,Spiller,Ballard, Rudolph,M.Bush, Cobb

  20. c3rd says:

    Need a WR3 and flex with this hand: Britt, Manningham, Brandon Gibson, Andre Roberts, and Alex Green.

    Is Britt even worth a start tonight?

  21. Ant says:

    Please pick two for my rb and flex:

    Spiller,Ballard, T.Smith, A. Hernandez

  22. Tim says:

    With only 12 of my 20 transactions remaining on the year, is it worth picking up any of the “emerging” backs from ARI or IND? I do already own Donald Brown, but I’m far from convinced that Ballard will have any value as early as Week 7. Just 21 carries for 42 yards…

    What do you think? Due to the transaction limit, only the GB backs were picked up this week.

    • Jeff says:

      It depends on how much you lean on Donal Brown. If he is a guy you are playing at RB or flexing regularly, I would add Ballard. If Brown is just bench filler for you, then I’d save the move probably.

  23. Sully says:

    10 team PPR, start 3:

    Wayne, Decker, Maclin, Hixon, James Jones, Nicks (assume Nicks starts)

    Also, would you suggest picking up any of the following and dropping Hixon: Burleson, Kerley, Bess, Avery or Gibson? Thinking long term.

    • Jeff says:

      Start: Wayne, Maclin, and Nicks. If Nicks doesn’t look like he will be 100%, sub in Jones. As for Hixon, I would hold onto him.

  24. AdamH says:

    Bench stash hoping for a nice hit later in the year (i.e. don’t need immediate help)-keep 2: Quizz, LSH, or Alfonso Smith?

  25. Tim says:

    So from the staff rankings I would gather that Sidney Rice is a clear upgrade from Kevin Ogletree? Even though the DAL passing game will be much more active down the stretch, etc.

    Just spent a small chunk of FAAB to get Ogletree, but Rice hit the wire. And I have no one else to potentially drop.

    • Jeff says:

      This week Rice is a better option, and I would lean Rice long term as well but I don’t think it’s too far apart for the long haul.

  26. Jeff says:

    Tough. I would probably lean Smith and Hartline. I’d like to pick one of the backs, but both have tough run D matchups this week.

  27. DiRo says:

    I need to start 2 guys, one in the WR slot and one in the Flex.

    My options are; T. Smith, Burleson, Hartline, K. Wirght, S. Jackson, F. Jackson.

  28. stumanji says:

    Start 2: D. Murray, D. Martin, D. Bowe.
    No PPR.

  29. Glenn says:

    Hey Jeff, I traded my Vick Ballard for Vincent Jackson. 1 pt PPR league. I needed help at WR. My RB’s are Mathew, Morris, Ridley and Martin. Did I make a good deal? Does Jackson still have some value? Thank you.

  30. B-Real says:

    I can’t spell, I give up.

  31. B-Real says:


  32. B-Real says:

    Hey man…..It’s good to see that you are doing well. I am in a bit of a dilema….I need a starting rb out of Chris Johnson, william powell, vick ballard and blount. Any advice?

  33. LakerSteve says:

    Hey guys, as always, thanks for the rankings. I have a question though. You all have Romo ranked way ahead of Ponder. I don’t know what Cowboy team will show up after the bye week, but Romo hasn’t looked good since week 1 and this week they’re at BAL. I know the Ravens D hasn’t been as good as advertised, but they still generate turnovers and Romo and the ‘boys are TO machines. Am I crazy to be leaning towards starting Ponder at WAS instead of Romo? The ‘Skins are giving up over 325 yards a game thru the air and just 88 yards against the run. I’m in a 6pt TD league with bonus points for yards: 250(2), 300(4), 350(6). Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    • Jeff says:

      Great question. Personally, this debate boils down to the fact that I know Romo is not as bad as he’s been this season and we have seen him be a pretty damn good fantasy QB in the past. They have had the bye week to figure some things out hopefully, and I think he should be ok this week. Nothing against Ponder at all, he’s been good, but that is where my thought process is coming from on this one.

  34. y4rivera says:

    Another question for a different league. Would giving Mendenhall straight up for Hernandez be a good move? I’m stacked at rb with McCoy, McFadden, Forte, Martin, and Mendenhall. We can only start up to 4. I’m solid at wr as well with Cruz, Percy, Marshall, and Brown. My weakest position is TE with Pitta and Finley. It’s a 10 team btw, not 8.

  35. y4rivera says:

    Sorry for all the questions. I’m just always looking to deal. Thoughts on Murray and Wallace for R.Bush and Calvin? My starters would be McFadden, Lynch, Bush, Jordy, and Calvin. Worth it to offer or just stick with my current backs and keep Wallace?

    • Jeff says:

      No problem at all, that’s why we’re here! I think that deal is pretty close but I would probably do it, as the diff between ‘Tron and Wallace is probably greater than the diff between Bush and Murray.

  36. Sully says:

    10 team PPR league: Should I give up Michael Bush and Eric Decker for Fred Jackson and Michael Crabtree?
