The big news this week was Carlos Hyde being traded to the Jaguars for a fifth round pick. Chances are that Nick Chubb was picked up immediately regardless of the format, but if you’re lucky, Duke Johnson Jr. might still be available. It sounds like Carlos Hyde won’t make his debut this week in a Jaguar’s uniform so T.J. Yeldon will be relevant for at least another week. With Marshawn Lynch being sidelined for the next month, Doug Martin is set to take over his touches. Consider this Doug Martin’s final chance to show that he can be a useful running back. We also have an early London game so make sure you have those line up decisions set on your Chargers and Titans players by 9:30 EST.

Weather

Every game in the North East is going to be windy. This shouldn’t affect any of the passing games too much. Everything else is clear.

Injuries

Melvin Gordon- Questionable (Very, very questionable)

Rob Gronkowski – Doubtful

Allen Robinson – Doubtful

Theo Riddick – Out

Quincy Enunwa – Out

Jamison Crowder – Out

Adrian Peterson – Probable

Chris Thompson – Game-time decision

Pierre Garçon – Doubtful

    Ready for Sunday morning!

    Going Mixon and Chubb at RB1 and RB2.

    For FLEX would you go Kerryon Johnson (no Riddick) or AP (no Thompson)?

    Standard scoring.

      AP

  2. Mike says:

    Probably a dumb question, but do you start chubb or McCoy?

    Also, would you start chubb over berida?

      Chubb > McCoy. Sexy matchup against Tampa

      Nope, they’ll probably end up playing again around the same time. Conner/Bell isn’t a bad problem to have

  5. Paul Zone says:

    Standard league:
    White, McCoy or Ingram?

    PPR league: Need 2 out of:

  6. Joe says:

    I need to start two of the following: Jordan Howard, Latavius Murray, Corey Clement, Alex Collins, TY Hilton, Keenan Allen. Standard scoring, the team I’m up against already has 33 points from the Denver defense so I need biggest chance to boom more than highest floor. Who would you pick?

    • MB

      MB says:

      Murray and Allen

  7. Brian says:

    Good morning man! .5 ppr league & I feel I lost week 7. DJ got me only 9.5 points Thursday & Melvin Gordon is inactive. Since Gordon is out I did draft ekeler for this reason so atleast I have that.

    Looking ahead to week 8 & beyond: drop my Ron jones to add either Doug Martin or jalen Richard? I dropped Alf Morris Friday & added Chubb.

    Next d/st I stream & looking for the best option

    Skins d home to the cowboys

    Cowboys D @ Washington

    Vikings D @ Jets

    Looking ahead to week 8 thoughts on pats D they get bills

      Cobb

  14. Jeffrey Gilden says:
    (link)

    Hey MB –

    With Gronk out I’ll need to pick up a tight end. Leaning toward Hooper, though Burton is also available. But I’ll have to drop someone. I have it down to Marquise Goodwin and Chris Godwin (My other WRs are Landry, Golladay, Boyd, Hilton, and Marvin Jones). Who would you cut?

    I have Gronk in another league, so I’ll have to cut there too. I have Lockett on my bye this week, and also Ronald Jones. One of thoseto cut?

    Finally, who would start this week between Josh Gordon and Taylor Gabriel? I’m leaning Gordon with Gronk out.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

      Burton in a shootout, drop Godwin. Drop Rojo in the other. Gordon for me too

  18. Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands says:
    (link)

    wow PPR FP’s rankings have sheppard still over chubb (even with engram back, seems backwards), guessing you’d say chubb there though, i thought it’d be at least close at FP, chubb 57th, sheppard 36th (for PPR flex rankings)

      • Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands says:
        (link)

        @Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands: guessing the assumption here is that chubb won’t catch much balls (the duke would get those). everybody sees shepard’s nice 7 or more targets per game but i just checked, in the 2 games engram played this year and finished, shepard’s line was
        12 targets, 8 catches, 72 caught yards, no TD’s. his averages without engram:
        7.75 targets, 5.75 catches, 67.25 yds, .5 TD, .25 2 PT conv (was also for SURE screwed out of a TD in the 1st QT of the last game by a guy tripping him from behind when open in end zone)
        with engram: 6, 4, 36, zero TD

        and CLE’s gotta think to keep winston off the field and unleash the guy who seemingly could break those barkley-like 30+ yard gains.

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Ahh yes, thank you for the Shepard insight. Yep that’s my thinking on Chubb

          • Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands says:
            (link)

            @MB: i got lucky to have shepard in this league (dropped RIGHT when engram was hurt), but now i have likely better options, interesting the other FP (and these are ONLY the top 30 this year guys i’m using) rankers haven’t noticed this. either that or they really think chubb is only a 1st/2nd down guy and won’t be used much or catch anything (or has some sort of touch count).

            checked again on chubb’s draft grades, due to his 2nd to last college year when he had a major knee injury his last college season wasn’t great, but many have said it’d be him or guice that would’ve been 2nd best this year drafted RB if not for that, and we’ve seen him look like the speed he had in 2nd to last college year is back now (that wouldn’t have shown up in some of the draft grades due to his last college season); albeit he WASN’T used in passing situations, so he does have that worry.

    who do you like at QB today? Cam or Trubisky?

    Also, Cowboys or Ravens?

    • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:

      @Weird Fishes: for sure over duke i’d think, probably both.

      Duke easily

  22. And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
    (link)

    yuck, 14 team super standard super flex (rushing/receiving yards lowered, making QB’s worth even more). lost allen, guessed at peterman over anderson, now with no 2nd QB (somebody tried getting coleman out of me for anderson, yeah ok). now can drop peterman for this week mostly only add since i forgot hyde lost enough value here to not start at all. best add for this week
    doctson (ALL the WAS WR’s are hurt)
    meredith (horrible matchup here but gotta think t.smith and MT are more worrying for BAL to consider)

      Godwin and Sanu

    i’m much more worried about j.howard vs NE (CHI now barely uses howard) than majority rankers here in a .2 PPR (so standard mostly). have this for sure
    QB wentz
    RB (2) michel, mccoy
    WR (2) jeffery, julio
    TE ertz
    3 flexes: options (i’ll list by what the consensus say): j.howard, drake, funchess, r.anderson, oj howard, mostert, t.smith (NO), watson (we have a max 6 RB/6 WR is why i have 3 TE’s), also have flacco/beat it hard. switch the howards maybe?

    Tough TE question. Standard scoring.

    Reed against a Dallas D that is stout against the run but suspect against the pass.
    Engram against an ATL D that is wretched at everything.

    Better trade to get Ertz:

    S. Michel & G. Swaim for Ertz

    Or

    N. Chubb & G. Swaim 4 Ertz

    • The Harrow says:
      (link)

      @Clokwerc: michel just did something bad to his ankle you likely won’t be able to do 1 even if you wanted to. bad stuff for me, i’ve got michel and am dominating in the 4 spots i have him.

      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: hehehe, OR CAR come back (wow why would anybody pick PHI when matchups like LAR/KC/IND/JAX, even DEN where available?, but 3 did)

  33. For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
    (link)

    michel out, i had richard till somebody dropped baldwin, so i nabbed him. but i have too many WR’s to use here and if michel is hurt i’ll need another RB far more than WR.
    12 team half PPR
    QB RW3, flacco (this week)
    RB (2) gurley, mixon, michel, clement
    WR (2) landry, hilton, jeffery, allison, baldwin, kupp,
    TE (1) rudolph
    1 flex
    IR (1) doyle
    so i’ll have flacco to drop shortly anyway, but should i drop a WR (and which) to try to get 2 of: barber (just dropped, again), richard,hines, mostart, gore, m.davis,ivory
    i really shouldn’t have dropped mack a bit ago here, got clement when doing so. will also set up a post to try to trade one of i’d guess allison/baldwin for a RB.

      • For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron says:
        (link)

        @For An Armenianless Vacation Come to Akron: i scoured the 11 other teams looking for guys stronger in RB depth but weak in WR depth, the 2 i can find would be
        baldwin or allison for drake (or maybe d.martin, just added by this guy) or powell (i know powell’s hurt)? even the owners of these guys probably won’t budge, nobody has over 4 useful RB’s in this league seemingly, so i’m probably best off just dropping for 2 best guys off FA (flacco and one WR dropped)
