  4. Jim says:

    Pick 2 of these 3: Zac Stacy, Greg Jennings, Emmanuel Sanders (PPR). Thanks!

  5. Brian says:

    Hey guys, need help deciding my flex.

    1 PPR, Blackmon or Garcon? Which one has the higher floor today?

  6. brad says:

    Gio or Lamar Miller (half PPR)

  8. Jeremy says:

    I have a number of players on bye and need to decide between the following less than healthy players for my FLEX position: Cecil Shorts or Joique Bell?

    14 team Yahoo PPR.

  9. Jermichael says:

    Thanks Jeff, what about Bennett? Would you rather have him over Olsen? If so, what type of trade would you suggest?

  10. David says:

    For QB: Matt Ryan or Eli Manning?

    At flex, 0.5 ppr, Mike Wallace or Lamar Miller?

  11. C Drow says:

    Wavering on my WR lineup this week. Need to pick 3…

    Calvin, Gordon, Garcon, Keenan Allen, Hilton.

  12. Jermichael says:

    Hi Jeff, I proposed Olsen & McGahee for Cameron, didn’t work…How do you think I should approach this trade? His team: Romo, VBrown, VJax, Forte, Lynch, Cameron, Bennett, L Bell, Vick, Shorts, Colston, Moore, Ridley, N Wash, Hauschka, TB D. My team: Rivers, Wilson, AJ Green, Torrey, Spiller, R Bush, Olsen, Allen, Antonio Brown, Boykin, Andre Brown, Wilson, Pierce, McGahee, Ellington, Walsh, NE D. I really don’t want to give up Allen or Torrey in this situation mainly because we flex 2.

    • Jeff says:

      I guess I would just keep trying to pair up guys with Olsen until you find something he likes. Im not sure any of your bench guys really will get it done. I dont know, maybe try Wilson with Olsen?

  13. Sully says:

    10 team PPR:

    Need RB2 and FLEX from the following:
    Z Stacy, Ogbonnaya, T Williams, K Wright, T Austin

    Reality is merely an illusion, but The Fake kicks merely’s ass.

    • Jeff says:

      haha thanks Sully

      Stacy at RB but Ogb is close in PPR. I would roll with T Williams at flex with Dallas having that matchup.

  14. prence says:

    Pick 3 from WR, PPR-league:

    J. Gordon
    DeSean Jackson
    Vincent Jackson
    Cecil Shorts
    Steve Smith

Fantasy Equity Scores: The ‘Why Not’ Tight End Candidates

Many tight ends taken in the waning rounds of a fantasy draft will fly off and on the waiver wire as tight end streamers devolve into climbing-on-the-walls tilt, desperate for a streamer, begging any deity to grant them sweet, sweet clarity. That doesn’t mean that this tight end tier should ...
