      @Big League choo: They don’t call him Khunt for nothing! I’d say put in Elliot and hope for a reinstatement… or, probably Burkhead for ceiling. I’m just thinking TD’s, and TD’s only.

      @Big League choo: hahahahahaha Agree with Jay, the last second reinstatement might be your best bet. Burkhead

    Hey Jay,

    Couple close rosters decisions I need help with:

    Need 1 for Wr3: Dede or Robert Woods
    Need 1 for TE: Vernon, RSJ or Jesse James

    PPR league

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @LG Football: Geez, they are literally a coin flip here. Leaning Westbrook ever so slightly due to Bortles matchup. AND RSJ. I think he’ll do really well this week.

      • LG Football says:
        (link)

        @Jay: thanks Jay! Agree these are all close. Hopefully see you in the finals!

      @LG Football: Dede and Seals-Jones

  3. Cheeeeeeeze says:

    Gotta start two of the 4, 0 ppr league: Collins, Davis, Burkhead, Morris. Thoughts?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Cheeeeeeeze: Going Collins and Davis there.

    • MB

      Unbreakable_mb says:
      (link)

      @Cheeeeeeeze: Collins and Burkhead. I’m not old enough to remember the last time Burkhead didn’t find the endzone. A bit of a stretch but I think it’s 5 straight games

  4. Clos says:
    (link)

    Hey Jay what’s going on? Picked up Charles clay because of Rudolph now Rudolph is playing. I honestly felt like clay was going to have a good day since Taylor is back and they’re playing the dolphins. Are you starting Rudolph or clay? Ppr league. Thanks.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Clos: Coffee and impending football semis! I have Rudolph ahead, but I have Clay +8 because of exactly that, love his matchup. I’d call him the ceiling guy today.

    • MB

      Unbreakable_mb says:

      @Clos: Clay has disappeared this season, I feel safer with Rudolph

  5. Oleg Z says:

    Stewart, Lee, Crowell, Ivory/Yeldon…..I need 2…..

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Oleg Z: Going Ivory and Lee. Crowell was going to sneak in there, but I’m iffy on him with the set of players you have here.

  6. InGreyWeTrust says:
    (link)

    Need some WR2 help. I’m debating between Sanu and Dede.

    Some things to consider. He had Theo and Keenan play last night and I had nobody. So i’m off to a good start since they combined for less than 10 points. But he still has AB, Theilen, and Gurley, so he could easily put up some big points.

    He has matt ryan as his qb. Sanu could potentially offset those numbers. I also have devonta and I’m never in love with starting two players from the same team, but its a great matchup and SnuSnu has been solid.

    What are your thoughts? Thanks.

    • InGreyWeTrust says:
      (link)

      @InGreyWeTrust: Do you think that Fournette being out helps Dede in any significant way?

      • Jay

        Jay says:
        (link)

        @InGreyWeTrust: I’d lean not enough here. The added volume from a different gameplan could be distributed to everyone or not at all.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @InGreyWeTrust: Yeah, they are close for me as well. Based on what you say, I’d probably stick with the modus operandi here and go Sanu.

      Unbreakable_mb says:

      @InGreyWeTrust: I love Dede today, I’d play him

  7. leveon says:
    (link)

    hey jay. feeling good after kareem vastly outplayed kelce yesterday. would you play ajayi over gio bernard or carlos hyde (half ppr)? i think the floor of a workhorse is safer than potential upside of ajayi for me right now.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @leveon: I generally don’t like Bernard… like ever, but this week, I do have him over Ajayi. That being said, I do have Hyde over both, so I’m probably going to lean him.

    • MB

      Unbreakable_mb says:
      (link)

      @leveon: yeah Gio is safest so I agree with Jay

      • MB

        Unbreakable_mb says:
        (link)

        @Unbreakable_mb: didn’t read the last part but Gio is safest

        @Unbreakable_mb: thanks guys, appreciate it.

  8. Pink Doves says:
    (link)

    Should I consider replacing Boswell with a Bailey or Lambo due to some wet weather potential in Pittsburgh?

    Still torn on the Dak/Ryan choice. I got good games from Gordon and Hill and a weak showing from Henry so far.

    The match up: .5ppr

    Ryan/Dak
    Bell
    Gordon (25.9)
    Hill (17.3)
    Lee
    Hogan
    Henry (4.3)
    Boswell
    Bills, Zona or Dallas.

    Vs.

    Wilson
    Freeman
    Drake
    Funchess
    Fitz
    D, Thomas (9.4)
    Doyle (8.2)
    Butker (13)
    Vikes

    Last minute thoughts based on what’s played out so far….

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Pink Doves: I think I’m okay there, I think he’ll get more opportunities. And yeah, Dak/Ryan thing is still very close, even after a couple of updates. I think Ryan is the ceiling choice, and Dak is the safe choice.

    • MB

      Unbreakable_mb says:
      (link)

      @Pink Doves: Tampa’s defense is missing its two best players, Ryan should have a huge day. Julio always ALWAYS torches Tampa. I’d grab Bailey

    • Pink Doves says:
      (link)

      @Pink Doves:

      I do have the benefit of seeing how everything plays out w/ the 1 and 4 games. He will only have Freeman left after 4. If I’m down or even I guess I go Ryan, if I have a lead play it safer with Dak.

      I’ll see the weather at 4 in Pitt, if it’s windy and worse than expected I’ll grab Bailey.

  9. MattyIce says:

    Can you help me pick 3 in a PPR? McCaffery, Collins, Buckhead, Perone, and J. Gordon.

    Also, V. Davis or Seals-Jones at TE?

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @MattyIce: My three are McC, Collins, and Perine there. And I’d say RSJ by a hair.

      @MattyIce: I’d go with Collins, Burkhead, and Josh Gordon here

    Choose 1 for my flex in ppr.

  12. Paulzone says:
    (link)

    Still alive! Let me know your thoughts:

    Newton or Rodgers – standard scoring w/ 4 pts for pass tds

    Brady or Big Ben – pass td =3 pts, no penalty for turnovers, pass yds weighted higher than norm

    Pick two WRs out of: Fitz, Jeffery & Goodwin – NO PPR

    Thanks!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Paulzone: Sup Paul, good to read! Newton has the slight edge there, and then I’d say Brady, same margin. And going Fitz and Jeffery there.

      • Paulzone says:
        (link)

        @Jay: Foles has me concerned so was leaning Goodwin there. Thanks for your take!

        • Jay

          Jay says:
          (link)

          @Paulzone: Yeah, honestly, they are close enough where your gut feeling can completely override my take. I’m just as fine with Goodwin there.

    • MB

      Unbreakable_mb says:
      (link)

      @Paulzone: Rodgers, Ben. Fitz and Goodwin

  13. Cheeeeeeeze says:

    Star 2 of the 3, non-ppr: Mike Evans, Robert Woods, or Sanu?

    Happy Sunday fellas, let’s do this!!

    This is it win or go home mode, im facing a tough opponent who’s won 9 straight.irs .5 PPR I’m up 79 to his 0 I had 3 guys go last night Melvin Gordon, hunt & Keenan Allen. My RB1 and RB2 showed up Keenan my WR1 7.5 points rest of my team:

    WR2 thinking Baldwin vs Rams huge playoff implication for both Rams & Hawks so Pete Carroll should get Baldwin involved. If I bench then it’ll be hogan at Pitt

    WR3 josh Gordon home vs Ravens

    TE hooper at Tb

    Flex thinking upside here Rod smith at OAK or hogan at Pitt

    D/ST Falcons D

    Kicker matt Bryant at TB

    IDP leaning on the Falcons theme I stream here but thinking of devondre Campbell LB of Falcons

    QB dak at OAK

    ——–

    My opponent

    His QB Brees

    RB1 Ingram
    RB2 Burkhead

    WR1 Cooks
    WR2 theilen
    WR3 woods

    Flex Jon Stewart

    TE slot open he has both Rudolph & OJ Howard

    D Baltimore

    IDP schobert LB on browns

    Kicker gostkowski

    —- im glad Hunt & Melvin showed up I needed those pts!

    Have a great one ! Thanks for everything all season

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Bobby’s world: Sure thing! Still thinking I like Baldwin from yesterday’s response. And I forgot what I answered yesterday on the next one, but leaning Smith over Hogan right now.

      And of course Bobby, thanks for reading!

  15. tomissoawesome says:
    (link)

    Standard league. He had Hunt on the bench. :)

    I have ben, brown and bell (it’s a keeper) which makes me highly correlated to the Steelers offense vs. the Pats. Sit ben for bortles? Dak? I

    Kerwyn or Bernard or Ivory for Fournette? Thank you.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @tomissoawesome: What a relief! I think keeping Ben in there is okay. You probably want to go all in here with those three. and leaning Bernard there.

  16. Duttz says:
    (link)

    Hey all! With Wentz done, who would you have at QB? Garoppolo, Foles, or Dalton?

    Also, for FLEX…Kearse, Clay, or Amendola?

    Thanks!

    • Duttz says:
      (link)

      @Duttz: sorry, this is PPR…

      • Duttz says:

        • Jay

          (link)

          @Duttz: Hmm, still Kearse here… though Clay did get closer.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @Duttz: Going Garoppolo, but all those choices make me want to drink. And leaning Kearse there.

      @Duttz: Foles ROS, and Kearse this week

    Hey Jay!! Need some help, in PPR semifinals:

    – Need to start which WR: Maclin, Kelvin, DeVante?
    – In flex, Hopkins or Hyde?
    – Which PPR TE to start: Witten, Rudolph, Seals-Jones?
    – which defense, eagles or Vikings?
    – consider dropping Zuerlin due to windy rain in Seattle, for Gould or Forbath?

    Thanks bud!!

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @JohnnyBeGood: Hey Johnny!

        @Jay: thanks bud

  19. James says:
    (link)

    Ivory or Mike Davis? (Unsure if rankings above reflect Fournette being out)

    Both have solid matchups. While Davis probably has the workload security, I think he also has more chance of being scripted out like last week.

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @James: Working on an update, but I still have Davis ahead there.

    Gotta start 3 of these. 16 team standard scoring. Non ppr.

    I’ve played four guys so far for a crummy 19 points (STD league) this week. My opponent has played one for 2. Thinking I’m in for a bad day, so do I go with the more reliable scoring of Big Ben, or do I go hail mary with Rodgers?

    • Jay

      Jay says:
      (link)

      @thegreater: Hail mary. Rodgers I’d say.

    I’m in a huge hole with my opponent playing Hunt last night. Do you think AJ Green can deliver a big game against the Vikings. I have my doubts with Dalton not looking particularly good last week in Chicago. I feel I might need to gamble with a lesser WR l I ke Sanu….Is that just crazy thinking?

    • Jay

    Hey Jay,

    Wish I had some good news for you. After going down 75 points with my opponent having Gordon and hunt I went into Sunday very discouraged.
    I ended up making a huge comeback to a point where I should have won. I lost 188-182

    I had these 4 players in my lineup;
    M. Thomas: 2 touchdowns overturned
    Carr: fumble inside the 1 yard line
    A. Brown and burkhead: we know what happened there

    Fantasy can be so unfair
