    My first five rounds of a 10 team, non-PPR league draft. I picked 7th.

    OBJ
    Ajayi
    Gronk
    Dalvin Cook
    Demaryius Thomas

    Yet somehow I am 6-1. Ajayi is dead to me. I didn’t want to draft him in the first place, but saw value as a second round pick. Last night, I dreamed that he ended up scoring 30 points after I turned the game off. I didn’t want to check my phone to break that dream. Seriously, who actually dreams of a player’s fantasy football score? Maybe there are some meds I should take..

      @Scott P: Dude I used to dream about Daily Fantasy College Basketball. Hahaha you’re the man Scott. I’m sorry about your loss but I think Ajayi will just start getting better. He has to. You can’t do this bad with that amount of workload

  2. Give: Winston & Howard
    Get: Brady & Blount

    Already have Kamara, Mixon, C. Thompson, and A. Jones @ RB and can only start max 2/wk
    6pt/passing TD

    Get Brady?

    • @D Fresh: Also have Carr and Goff to fill in for Brady’s wk9 bye if I pull the trigger

      • Zach

        @D Fresh: Pull the trigger

      @D Fresh: yeah that’s be a nice upgrade

    Trade offer sent to me. After the TNF game, would you trade Alex Collins to get DeVante Parker? I have depth at RB (Ajayi, Ingram, Peterson, Mack, and Collins) and weakness at WR (Tate, Humphries, R. Anderson), in a 20 team PPR league. Thanks!

    • Scott P says:
      (link)

      @King Daddy Crunch: I would make that deal. When Parker is healthy, he is a starter in a 20 team league.

      • King Daddy Crunch says:
        (link)

        I felt the same and pulled the trigger, especially after hearing that Cutler should be back week 9 – Cutler has a man-crush on Parker.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @King Daddy Crunch: Yeah devitiely get Parker with the RB guys you have

  4. Darren says:

    14 team half PPR .. I’m 3-4 but leading the league in points… was just offered Fitzgerald and Darkwa for my Jeffery … my 2nd RB has either been Stewart or Mack all year (I have woodhead on IR) … Whatya think ?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Darren: nah I think Jeffery is more valuable than both combined

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Darren: I don’t want anything to do with Fitzgerald now that Palmer is out for the rest of the season

    hey Jay, TGIF! Been playing russian roulette and benching the wrong guys lately. need to make the right call this week!!

    1) Start which 2 in PPR flex spots: McKinnon, Duke Johnson, S Diggs ?
    2) Start which WR in PPR: Funchess or Diggs?
    3) Start which RB in PPR: Kamara or Mixon ?

    Thanks brotha

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @JohnnyBeGood: McKinnon and Diggs (if he starts), Funchess if Diggs can’t go, and then Mixon.

  6. MB

    Mb says:
    (link)

    McKinnon, Diggs

    Diggs

    Mixon

  7. William Hung says:

    Right now I have only 1 viable WR for Sunday: Amari Cooper

    My other options are: Ricardo Louis, Martavis Bryant, Bennie Fowler, and Kenny Golladay

    I’ll be making cuts to Louis, Bryant and Golladay ahead of Sunday. If I don’t get any waiver claims, which of the following WRs should I pick up (note I need to play 2 of the following on Sunday, one if I play Fowler in my 2nd WR tool):
    -Marquise Goodwin, Zay Jones, Travis Benjamin, Demarcus Robinson, Brandon LaFell, Brice Butler

    • William Hung says:
      (link)

      I forgot to include TJ Jones as an option as well

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: Quise and Jones is still the 2nd best option even with Tate playing

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Mb: TJ Jones is the preferred option over Marvin Jones?

        • Zach

          Zach says:
          (link)

          @William Hung: No, and for the other question I agree with my colleague

  8. Allan says:
    (link)

    Need a little help. RB2 in a full ppr. Richard, Riddick, or Cohen? Should have cruised to a victory this week but my opponent had the Ravens D last night. Same joker beat me by 2 points in week 1 by getting 28 from the Rams D. Lucky douche.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Allan: Riddick in a game that should be pretty high scoring and the Steelers aren’t the best against RB’s

  9. JB2 says:
    (link)

    Funchess or Garçon this week? Heard that PG’s injury might be a real problem.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @JB2: fine with Funchess. Bucs secondary is going to have issues again this week

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @JB2: Funchess is in a better spot and I think he has a higher floor than Garcon

  10. Scott says:

    I added riddick this week since I thought tate was out. I don’t have anyone to play at flex except riddick. .5ppr. Should I stick with him or go with Richard (dont like the matchup in Bif) orr tyler lockett? I also own kittle who I picked up last week. He only had 2 targets last week but had 15 previous 2 weeks. my TE is off. Do I roll with kittle or cut him and add doyle, oj Howard or o’leary from buf? Thx

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Scott: I like Richard more than Riddick this week. Grab Doyle for Kittle

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Scott: I agree with Matt here

  11. James says:

    Love Wentz this week and forever. But if PHI is getting hit with 2″ of rain and 20mph winds, would you go Newton @TB instead?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @James: No I still like Wentz in the matchup. Monitor the weather and if it’s REALLY bad then go with Newton

  12. Oliver says:

    I got a guy in my league (non-PPR) who is dying to get my Diggs. Frankly, I need an RB and I have Julio Jones and AJ Green as my two every week starting WRs.

    He has Doug Martin, Aaron Jones, and Demarco Murray. He offered me Murray, which is DOA. I will accept Martin, easily, but I am up in the air about Aaron Jones. Think I should take it? He also has LaVeon, but I doubt he’ll give him up.

    Thank you in advance!

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Oliver: Demarco for Stefon Diggs? I don’t mind that

  13. Super Freek says:

    12 team standard league

    Would you pull the trigger?

    I send Alshon, Mixon, and Kirkers

    I get Michael Thomas, Rivers, and Alex Collins?

    Not sure i can pull the trigger on this.

    • Super Freek says:
      (link)

      @Super Freek:

      Forgot to mention,

      I have Russ Wilson as my other QB and my RBs are Melvin and Abdullah. Not much depth at RB but i’m a lock for the playoffs.

      Alex Collins has a very nice playoff schedule and Thomas will be indoors for his matchups as well.

      Mixon is bound to break out but has some tough matchups ahead and im not sure Marvin Lewis is too happy with him.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Super Freek: no I wouldn’t do it. It looks like you have all of the high upside guys in that trade

  14. Jack says:

    A couple of questions for you, this is a 12 team PPR league.

    Would you definitely play Mixon over Forte? Mixon’s workload seems to be pretty volatile, and speaking out about his touches didn’t seem to rub Marvin Lewis the right way.

    Also, I have Deshaun Watson and Matt Ryan as my QB’s. Would it be crazy to drop Ryan and pick up Dalton? I would start him over Watson with his juicy matchup against the Colts. I could always grab Ryan again on waivers next week.

    Lastly, would you start Smith-Shuster over Amendola?

    Thanks for the advice.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Jack: yes I’d take my chances on Mixon. And I’d start Smith-Schuster

      • Jack says:
        (link)

        @Mb: Thanks. Would you drop Ryan to stream Dalton? Seems like no one has confidence in Watson against the Seahawks.

  15. Noam says:

    Great rankings!

    Would start Rudolph over Brate in PPR?

    And also in PPR, pick two: C Thompson, White, Mixon, Howard, Abdullah, Mack…

    • MB

      Mb says:

      @Noam: yes start Rudolph!
