  6. Steve C says:

    NOT thrilled with Gio’s Matchup. PPR League I have Shady RB1 and Instead of Gio would it be Crazy to stat Hillman at RB 2 and Vereen at Flex? which 2 would u Play? Am I correct with my Main Concern is that Gio Hasn’t been as Involved a much with receptions?
    Then WR Julio is WR 1 which one to go with from Edleman, (Seems like LaFell is getting too much Action, Benjamin (Should I be worried against a “Pissed of Seattle Def) OR Take a Chance that K. Allen is Due ? I have Edleman in Now for safe play? who do You like .?? Thanx as Always!

  10. nate says:

    was offered bradshaw for my kelvin benjamin

    rbs: mccoy, lamar
    wrs: demaryius, kelvin, keenan, cooks, odb

    start 2 rbs, 2 wrs, 1 flex

    what do you think?

  11. football says:

    half PPR. Need to make a decision on my RB2, WR3 and then my flex

    Doug Martin, DMC
    Decker, Cooks

    Need to pick one of the RBs, one of the Wrs, and then one of either WR/RB

    Tough decision

    thank you!

    • Jeff says:

      I think I would sit Martin out of these options. DMC will be moving up a bit in my ranks on my next update today. Decker is seemingly healthy now and I don’t think Martin is a great play right now.

  12. Max says:

    A team has peyton manning but needs a RB sends Phillip Rivers to Team 2 for Jouiqe bell (this team has rbs but needs a qb). The Commish is trying to veto the trade. Please comment if you think this is a fair trade so I can show the commish how little he knows about fantasy.
