I hope everyone in Razzball Nation had a nice Thanksgiving!  I decided to buck the trend and roasted up Tehol’s chicken for my centerpiece.  Fingerlickin’ good!

So we’ve already had our three Thanksgiving games, and you’re all set with a round of leftovers for the rest of week 13.  You’ve got gravy all over one hand and turkey grease from the wing all over the other, and you’re just not worrying about looking at you line-up.  No one is on bye right?!  But with all teams now in action, it gives you a lot more line-up decisions.  A lot more “last second decisions.”  Hey, that’s the name of the article!  Yeah, I had nothing else better to run with in my Thanksgiving hangover.  My stomache feels like an ever-expanding mushroom [gravy] cloud of stuffing.  But I’m ready to go for today, ready to help you get into the playoffs, and ready for one last turkey sandwich while my Panthers wipe out da Bucs.

Looking back at last week’s picks, and a big capital F for a real big bad word for Chris Ogbonnaya, who I liked as a start and burned me bad yet again this season.  But after that it was a big 4/5 with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jarrett Boykin, Shane Vereen and Kendall Wright all having really nice games.  For my benchers, how about the Pierre Garcon call?  Knew a bad one was coming, he was decent in PPR, but I’m calling that one a win.  Then my dirty picks of bad RBs Trent Richardson and Ray Rice both worked out.  Philip Rivers went off, but if the KC defense didn’t lose all those starters it could’ve been a different story, and Mike Wallace had a big game with a lot coming on a fluke-ish big play.  Captain Munnerlyn looked slow and had no awareness on the long TD that was under-thrown.  Luckily my Panthers made it 7 straight!  And it was an overall nice week for LSD.  Here’s who I like in week 12 and their % started in ESPN and Yahoo, respectively (NOTE – these are not always recommendations for 1-for-1 swaps, just guys I like who are understarted and guys I hate overstarted):

POSSIBLE STARTERS

Alex Smith (23.7%, 20%)  It’s a little surprising just how good a fantasy option Smith has been lately, with 225+ yards and multi-TDs in three of the last four.  Today’s throwdown against the Broncos v.2 should be rife with energy and passing, with a moderate temperature and little wind to limit Peyton on the other side.  Shootout alert!  I like Smith a lot this week.

Josh McCown (11.4%, 25%)  Another deeper QB play that I think goes off today is McCown against a terrible Vikings defense that gives up the second-most points to opposing QBs in the league.  McCown has huge targets to throw to and Matt Forte is all set to go in the dump-off game for an indoor controlled beatdown.  He’s my DraftKings QB play this week and I think gets a bundle of yards with multi-TDs.

Donald Brown (21.0%, 13%)  Brown had a big breakout two weeks ago against the Titans, and I think the Colts will do everything in their power to rekindle that running game.  And the answer ain’t Trent Richardson!  The Titans give up the third most points to opposing running backs and Brown should have running lanes wide enough for him, but too small for T-Rich.

Michael Floyd (12.3%, 49%)  Following up the huge breakout in week 11, Floyd backed it up with another 100-yard game and gets a cheesesteak of a matchup against Philly, who give up the most points to opposing wideouts in the league.  Their D is as soft as cream cheese!  Now I’m hungry for more on top of the turkey sandwich! Love Floyd this week, and Yahoo is figuring it out.

Justin Hunter (0.2%, 1%)  I saw a lot of the Titans game last week, and Hunter looks for real.  Nick and I talked him up on this week’s Podcast, and with the Titans struggling to run in my crystal ball of a preview (more below), I think they’ll be pass-heavy.  The Colts are 26th in points given up to WRs and Kendall Wright is garnering more and more attention.  A great WR option available in a ton of leagues if you need a high-upside play.

SON OF A BENCH

Chris Johnson (93.9%, 85%)  I think all conventional wisdom has CJmaybe1K a no-brainer start, but I have a feeling this is a rough game.  You look back and see he had the big game against the Colts in week 11, but he did all that damage in the first quarter, then the Titans didn’t do squat on the ground.  Well, I guess they did squat on the ground… Anywho, I think the Colts made the right adjustments and will be able to shut him down.  With the bye weeks now over, I could see a lot of teams having better options.

Steven Jackson (60.2%, 47%)  When I see the Bills on the schedule, I’m reminded of a time where I think they were the laughing stock of Run Ds.  Maybe I’m making that up, but they’ve been quite the opposite this year, giving up three rushing TDs all year and the 5th least fantasy points to opposing RBs.  Jackson looked good last week, but I don’t think it carries over to today in Canada.  I think he’ll look a lot like Rob Ford out there.

Matt Ryan (54.0%, 54%)  Sticking with the Foning it in Falcons, Ryan has been a good pick for me in the past and I think he lays another egg north of the border today.  He’s off 5 straight subpar games and I like both the QBs listed above better.  Side note – awesome that ESPN and Yahoo to the fraction have the exact same percent playing Ryan.  I don’t know if LSD has ever seen that!

Vincent Jackson (88.3%, 90%)  VJax was decent against my Panthers in week 8 with 5 for 79, but I think he does less than that in the repeat.  The Panthers survived a tight one against Miami last week, and they’ll be ready and better prepared against a surging Bucs team.  We were on a short week after a high-profile win, so I think we’ll look at a lot of tape and figure out coverages that got broken for Mike Wallace to have that nutso game.  I’d weigh other options.

Tony Gonzalez (85.0%, 77%)  I probably could’ve saved a lot of time by just putting “Atlanta Falcons” as a pick, but alas, Gonzo is not a strong play for this week for me either.  In the past six, including the same five where we’ve seen Matt Ryan collapse, Gonzo has topped 43 yards only twice with only one TD.  And this Bills D is legit.  Gonzo is officially questionable at the time of this writing, and he’s got one foot out the door and into Canton.  I’d look for a play with upside.

If you have any last second decisions, shoot some comments below or tweet me @jbgilpin – and remember I’m going to be a little slower getting to them but I’ll get to everything well before kickoff!   Good luck in week 13!

    Hey JB, hope you didn’t get shot or stabbed during Black Friday shopping….just another weekend up here in Canada….

    Who do you line at QB today: McCown or Foles? Also would you move up The Donald (Brown) over Vereen or Stacy this week?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: Hah I made it unscathed! I hope you and Nick had a good time watching us southerners go nuts… I think I might go with McCown on the matchup. And I still like the other to RBs more, but barely

  2. Gbbb says:
    (link)

    Should I still be starting woodhead and vareen as my rb1 and 2 even though I have Stacy and he’s cleared to play? It’s a .5 ppr. Thanks in advance

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Gbbb: I’d play Stacy and Vereen… Woodhead has been awesome, but I think Vereen is huge

  3. stantonovation says:
    (link)

    Cant decide which 1 to start

    C shorts
    R randle
    S smith

    Smith get a boost if revis out?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @stantonovation: Slight boost for Smith, but we should blow em out. I think it’s Randle against terrible Skins D

  4. CL says:
    (link)

    PPR… Mendy over SJax, right?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @CL: Man, that’s a coin flip for me… Yeah I think Mendy

  5. Night pandas says:
    (link)

    Hey JB,

    McCown or Foles today?

    Also

    D Brown, Stacy, Vereen (pick 2, .5ppr)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Night pandas: Got ya above

  6. The Thumb says:
    (link)

    This might be more of a question for Sky than for you, but with Percy sitting, does that move Russell down on the QB rankings? I’m debating whether to start him vs NO or Foles vs ARI.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Thumb: I’m no Sky, but I don’t think it would change much given he’s only played a handful of plays this year anyway. I’d stick with Wilson

  7. The Thumb says:
    (link)

    Also, my flex is a mess right now… Who would you start out of Rainey, Colston, Amendola, B Tate, TY Hilton.

    Thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Thumb: That’s not too bad a mess! I think I go Hilton

  8. Frank White says:

    Whats up JB.. Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving Brotha!! Cooper, Bowe, Pierre T.. Which one do I bench?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Thanks man you too! I think I’m benching PIerre

  9. SimplyComposed says:
    (link)

    I felt the same way about Tony Gonzalez that’s why I picked up Jacob Tamme after last week but Julius Thomas is of course likely to start today. How do you feel about Victor Cruz against the Redskins? My other option is Fred Jackson against the Falcons who up until recently has been fairly consistent.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @SimplyComposed: Yeah sucks Thomas is in the late games… I think Cruz can be solid and has a ton of upside. I think I’d play him over FJax

  10. Principle Blackman says:
    (link)

    Good read, JB.
    In a PPR/ret yardage league with bonuses for 40yds+ passing plays, and bonuses for 75 total yards and 150 total yards for both rec and ret yards, I need to pick two of Cordarrelle Patterson, Michael Floyd, and DeSean Jackson. Patterson has not failed to score in double digits in this format since week seven, but, obviously, he has hot garbage throwing to him; Floyd has had an awesome couple of weeks, and like you said, Philadelphia’ D is LOL bad; Jackson, meanwhile, has been nearly as good as the Jackson5, but Arizona’s D, generally, and Peterson, specifically, give me pause.

    As always I appreciate your help in resolving the matter.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Principle Blackman: Mannnnn, that’s a tough one. I think I’d roll out Patterson (lots of returns with I thinK CHI scoring a lot and a lot of junk time) and DJax. Peterson is good and makes plays, but isn’t as big the shutdown guy as Haden or Revis. Plus they can screen DJax a lot

  11. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Pick two for standard league want safer plays over upside
    Stacy Rainey Mathews jstew bolden ogre
    Thanks bud

    Also drop any if these guys for pierce or starks

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: interesting tidbit

      ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Stevan Ridley is not expected to play much on Sunday against the Texans if he’s even active.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: I like Stacy and Mathews. Rainey has the upside if he busts one, but I like my Panthers D.

  12. Ecstatic Giraffe says:
    (link)

    I hope you’re right about those Falcons calls! I’m facing a huge Falcon fan and it would really help me if those guys have a terrible day. Anyway, do you know if Reed is playing today? If so should I play him over Delanie Walker?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ecstatic Giraffe: I hope so too! Reed is reported to play, I’d play him over Walker.

  13. Allan says:
    (link)

    JB, need a little help. Need to pick a RB and flex out of the following: Ellington, Dennis Johnson, T Rich, Steve Smith, and Marquise Goodwin. Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Allan: I’d go Johnson and Steve Smith. Ellington is out, and T Rich might as well be haha

      • Allan says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks. Thats what I was thinking.

  14. Hal Incandenza says:
    (link)

    Hi, razzball footballers. Looking for some RB opinions from this group (pick 2):

    Ben Tate
    Lamar Miller
    Sproles

    Thanks!

    • Slim pickinz, man. Miller and Tate should combine for the most touches.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Hal Incandenza: Hola good sir. I like Tate and Sproles, Miller and Fins run game is a joke Against league best run D even without Daniel Thomas

  15. TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
    (link)

    Yay T Rich got benched, definitely starting Donald Brown now. It looks like Orange Julius is iffy which I don’t like so I’ll play it safe and bench him. With that being said it’s a .5 ppr league, should I roll with Cordarelle Patterson vs. Bears (seeing a lot of targets and has amazing upside), Bobby Rainey vs. Carolina (awful matchup) or Cecil Shorts vs. Cleveland (probably will be seeing Joe Haden)? Thanks and keep up the good work.

    • TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
      (link)

      @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: Also we get points for return yards, .1 for each return yard. This is making me thinking of going with Cordarelle.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: I’d indeed roll the dice on CPat. Yeah and that was my pick before seeing you got RET yard boost. CPat for the win!

  16. Brian says:
    (link)

    Hey JB- flex question for you, non-PPR.

    SJax, Rainey, B Tate or Colston?

    I have a decent lead right now (had Stafford/L Bell going on Thanksgiving), and last thing I need is Tate to put up another clunker- so I’m leaning SJax, but your “bench” designation has me second guessing myself.

    Also, I have J Reed at TE. If he can’t go tonight, my waiver options are going to be F Davis or Z Miller (or their respective backups). Preference with either of those two?

    Thanks!

    • TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
      (link)

      @Brian: J Reed going tonight so you’re good there.

        • TobiasFunkeAnalRapist says:
          (link)

          @Brian: Hah thanks, “I accidentally just blew myself.”

          • goodfold2 says:
            (link)

            @TobiasFunkeAnalRapist: he meant “blue myself”. pervert. even though i’m pretty sure he was the first person to invent using that phrase to intend making oneself blue as a verb.

    • Brian says:
      (link)

      @Brian: Forgot to add I have Chris Ivory too as a flex option- I didn’t think he was going to play today.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Brian: I know he burned ya last week, but I would go Tate myself. Don’t like the matchups for any of the other 3. Think Tate with another week for the ribs to heal should be more effective. And yea you’re good with Reed

  17. Cram It says:
    (link)

    What up JB? Hope you had a splendid Thanksgiving.

    Are you concerned with Ellington seeing limited action and/or maybe leaving early with that knee? Would you start Whitaker or Justin Hunter over him at the flex?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: Never mind. He’s not playing now.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Cram It: Yo! You as well, indeed I did. Yeah sucks he’s missing it… I like Hunter the most as your flex of the 2

  18. Big League Choo says:
    (link)

    standard league

    need two rbs and a flex Spiller vs Atl, Ivory vs Mia, Tate/Dennis Johnson vs NE, MJD vs Cle, Decker vs KC(last time they used sean smith a 6’3″ corner on him and he did nothing), Colston vs Sea

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Big League Choo: MJD has actually been fairly decent, I’d go him, Ivory and indeed Decker despite tough run lately

      • Big League Choo says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I’m going with your call and depending on the score of the game i might sub in spiller for decker at flex…..i got big boost on turkey day with tucker kicking 5 fgs. Thanks a lot.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Big League Choo: Any time man! Damn, wish I had Tucker on a team…

  19. Pete says:
    (link)

    In PPR today would you start Stacy at RB and flex Vereen while sitting Chris Johnson and Ben Tate?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Pete: Yeah totally with those moves

  20. WinandIn says:
    (link)

    Hey hey,

    Need a victory over the best team in the league to grab the last playoff spot. Can you please help me fill the following four spots from these eight players? I’ve gone through about 400 permutations. Standard league…

    RB, WR, Flex, Flex

    RBs: C. Johnson, F. Jackson, S. Jackson, D. Brown, C. Ogbonnaya
    WRs: A. Boldin, M. Floyd, D. Jackson, A. Johnson (worried about him against Talib)

    Many thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @WinandIn: My lineup would be

      RB: FJax

      Flex: A. Johnson

      Go get em

    Hi JB! I’ve got a really close matchup in my 10 team, standard points, Yahoo league. I’m trying to set my QB, WR and TE line up. Can you help?
    QB- Fitzpatrick or Ryan?
    2 WRs – Amendola, Boldin, Welker or Wright?
    TE – Thomas or Reed?
    Thanks in advance!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Megan: I like Fitzpatrick, hate Ryan. Welker and Wright. TE I like Reed just because we know for sure he’s playing. Any time!

  22. rak says:
    (link)

    Am I crazy in wanting to start Nick Foles over Cam Newton(all touchdowns are worth 6)?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @rak: No not crazy at all, but I would stick with Cam

  23. Adam says:

    Last flex spot, Keenan Allen or Donald Brown? Half a point per reception.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Adam: Mannnn that one is close, I think I go Allen

  24. eltoo says:
    (link)

    PPR, who are you flexing: Shorts, Colston, Rainey?

    Thanks

    • eltoo says:
      (link)

      @eltoo: also, would you consider starting bolden (ridley inactive) over moreno?

      • eltoo says:
        (link)

        @eltoo: or start him over MJD

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @eltoo: I’d flex Rainey of those three. And nah, I like Moreno and MJD a fair bit more

  25. Dave The Barber says:
    (link)

    OK so Brown is in T Poor is out. Do I start Brown over Rainey?

  26. Toby says:
    (link)

    Who should I start at Flex: Shorts, Ben Tate or Mendenhall? Please help!!!

    Thanks

    • Toby says:

      @Toby: 12 team standard scoring. Tied for 4th place. Tough matchup.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Toby: I’d flex Tate, I know Mendenhall is looking at a big slate of work with no Ellington, but I think Tate can have a nice game

      • Toby says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks for the advice, JB. You helped me lead my team to victory yesterday, putting up 152 points and counting (Haushka up tonight) versus a stiff 137 from my opponent. I almost went with Mendenhall but you helped pull me back from the brink. Thanks for saving my season!!!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:

          @Toby: No prob man, glad Tate worked out so well! Win Razzball Nation a title!

  27. Randy says:
    (link)

    Need 1 RB, 1 WR, and a Flex in standard league: Moreno, Spiller, Vereen, B. Bolden, Garcon, Keenan Allen, Michael Floyd. (Moreno makes me nervous and I’m in a must win). In another standard league, need 1 WR and 1 Flex out of Andre Johnson, Garcon, Stacy, or B. Bolden (who is available). Thanks!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Randy: I still don’t think you can sit Moreno, I like him Garcon and I think Vereen over Allen, but very very close. I like AJ and Garcon in the 2nd. No prob!

  28. tim says:
    (link)

    Playoffs in a non-PPR league on the line:
    Pick one RB: Ellington, Rainey, Sproles, or Bolden (two if you think one is a better play than Randle at FLEX)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @tim: Nah I like Randle, I think it’s Rainey of those and hope for some rec yardage and a gaol line score

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

  32. Steve Stevenson says:
    (link)

    0.5 ppr, I see above you have Stacy above Woodhead. What about Woodhead vs Spiller? I’m starting 2 out of the 3. Win and I’m in. In good shape so far thanks to murray, projected to win by 25, but my opponent has Brees (and F Jax).

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Steve Stevenson: I’d go to Woodhead there I just don’t trust Spiller. Brees couldn’t have a worse matchup I think you got it!

  33. FilthyRich says:
    (link)

    Trying to hang on to 1st place in my division. Need 2 RBs from these 4:
    Ogbonnaya vs JAX, Sproles vs SEA, Bolden vs HOU, Cunningham vs SF.

    I know they’re all pretty lame but i’ve been killed by injuries!

    • JB Gilpin

    Luck over McCown or Foles?

  35. Frank says:
    (link)

    Need 2 (1 WR, other at flex) of the below in a 12tm full ppr (2RB, 3WR, flex). I have Cruz and Jeffrey locked in at 2 of the 3 WR spots and McCoy and CJ locked in at the 2 RB spots.

    Shorts (@ CLE, Haden), Amendola (@ HOU), Sproles (@ SEA), Ogbo (vs JAX).

    Hearing bad weather in Seattle tomorrow, not sure about sproles…

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Frank: I think Dola is a lock… then I indeed think I roll the dice on Sproles, don’t like Shorts and Haden lock down, and will never go with O-Bones again

        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: awesome, thanks!

            @Frank: Mannnn I really really want to say Brown… You know what, I will say Brown! Think he has a big game, might contradict an answer above, i like both a lot though

            • Frank says:
              (link)

              @JB Gilpin: Yea, very tough… have Charles and Rash at RB 1 and 2… leaving these 2 to pick for flex. I like Brown slightly more as he was named the starter. Bills will probably run for over 200 today too…

              thanks

    cordarelle, Crabtree, or one of the above rbs for a rb/wr spot?

      @farcus: I’d go with Rainey and CPat. Rainey is a very tough matchup but has all the workload and I think CPat can get some junk work. Good luck today!

      @Comatose: Stacy has gotten banged up a lot, I’d hedge the emerging Rams run game with Cunningham

    Deep 16 teamer, no ppr, Dennis Johnson or Ogbannaya? Amendola vs. in Houston, they have a very strong D against the slot, or take a chance on Crabtree?

    • JB Gilpin

      @nyydj2: I’d go Johnson. And I’d stick with Dola

    Yo JB, Is Vontaze Burfict starting today, I can’t find any news on it

      @J-FOH: I’ve only seen questionables too, damn this 4:00 time slot!

        @JB Gilpin: my IDP league playoffs are on the line, F**k it I’m starting Audie Cole

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @J-FOH: IDP is a foreign language to me… yeah I’d play someone healthy. You ask Kevin?

          • J-FOH says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: hit him up on twitter, we are both in the same boat with having Burfict and having Cole waiting in the wings.

            You need to learn IDP, the Guru is loving it….Sky not so much

              @J-FOH: I feel like IDP would have way too much variable on how the games go… I dunno, maybe I’ll give it a try one day… Is my boy Luke K a #1 player???

              • J-FOH says:
                (link)

                @JB Gilpin: he’s top 20, Burfict has been top 3

    Wats up JB!

    I need the safest surest plays this week. I just can’t pull any 0-5 pointers.

    .5 PPR

    Dennis Johnson, Lamar or Zac Stacy?

    Roddy White or Ruben Randle?

    Thx!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Safety First: I’d go Stacy and Randle, White has only been a 0-5 pt player (hah!) and I think Stacy is your surest guy. Good luck today!

    Rainey ball or Powell ppr

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Sniff Test: Rainey

  42. crutch says:

    2RB/2WR/1Flex, non-ppr, non-return yards
    Currently I’m going
    Forte/D.Brown
    Hilton/Wallace
    Shorts

    Giving thought to Steven Jackson, Hopkins, Randle, Ben Tate, Dennis Johnson. I like Brown with the start over TRich, but kind of am thinking Jackson over Shorts… any thoughts?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @crutch: I would put in Randle over Shorts in that great matchup against terrible Redskins… I like SJax over Shorts too, if you still wanted to go that route, but I think Randle has a big-un

  43. Bryan says:
    (link)

    Stacy over Desean or Garcon?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bryan: Nah I like both the WR plays there. Garcon should bounce back nicely

  44. ashtray says:

    Griffin or Palmer

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @ashtray: I would still go with RG3

  45. Willy says:

    Now that Donald is the main guy, do i start him over vereen in flex? Or stick with vereen? Standard btw

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Willy: Yeah in stnd I think I go Brown

      • Willy says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: so far regretting this last second decision! Here’s hoping for a big finish for donald!

          @Willy: Thank goodness for that touchdown!

            @willy: It was a Colts last second decision!

  46. Zandy says:

    Need some major points as Brady is killing me. Standard league. Do I want to flex Keenan Allen, Ryan Mathews, Stevie Johnson or Jordan reed?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Zandy: I think Allen is the best upside play

  47. Heraldo says:
    (link)

    So, I didn’t have a back-up plan for Jordan Reed and, of course, I’m losing (by 14) and need the win to make the playoffs.

    After dropping Reed (just hurts to type), who of this lovely bunch do I pick-up?
    Brandon Myers
    Zach Miller
    Benjamin Watson
    Logan Paulsen
    Fred Davis
    Luke Wilson (Never heard of him)

    Thanks.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Heraldo: Yeah tough set back. Hurt a lot of owners, and agree you gotta drop him. Myers I think would be my dice roll. Bad Skins D, banged up Nicks

      • Heraldo says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Thanks for the super quick reply, JB. You’re the best.

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Heraldo: As a guy only in the playoffs in either 2 or 3 (one to be decided) out of 6 leagues, and nothing riding on that game, I’m cheerin for Myers to go off for ya!

          • Heraldo says:
            (link)

            @JB Gilpin: Dude, the Myers call was huge 22-yard TD. Thanks again. And fortunately, I still have Hartley to go. Can’t thank you enough!

            • JB Gilpin

              @Heraldo: Awesome man! So glad I could help, hope it gets ya a title!

    Davis or miller?
