Happy Halloween folks, can you guess who I am? If you guessed press conference Ryan Fitzpatrick you are absolutely correct. If you guessed low level Italian mobster who is a fan of lunch meats and cheeses that is also a good guess. It looks like a bunch of Jaguars players got arrested 12 hours before kickoff so start your Eagles! DeSean Jackson has also requested a trade so that is something to think about. He could see some extra love today from Jameis to boost his trade value. He has the option to get out of his contract at the end of the season so why not get as much as they can for him?

    Thanks as always for gameday lineup crunch!

    Who starts out of Baldwin, Howard, Chris Thompson, Godwin, Josh Gordon, and Richard in full PPR? I need RB, WR, and flex out of those. I’m leaning Baldwin, Howard, and Gordon.

    I’m in a half point ppr 12 man league . I need a second wr to start if Allen Robinson doesn’t play . Would you drop him or Andy Dalton ? THANKS
    Qb cam Newton (leaning towards starting Dalton today )
    Rb Gurley
    RB Kamara
    WR A.J. Green
    WR A Robinson
    TE Howard
    D New England
    Bench – Cohen, Dion Lewis, Engram, Minnesota, Dalton

      Great album. Yeah, Robinson is a safe drop. Starting Dalton May be getting a little cute but Tampa is atrocious so I get it

  3. Paul Zone says:
    (link)

    So I’m 2-4. 10 tean ppr. Was offered this trade:

    Brees, Allen, Njoku or Engram for my Peterson & Ertz

    My team
    Wilson, Stafford
    DJ, Peterson, Breida, Miller, Chubb, Martin
    Schuster, Baldwin, Edelman, Cobb, Gabriel
    Ertz

    I oroginally offered him Martin, Edeman, Stafford for Brees & Allen…thinking those 2 could help but hate to give up Ertz.

    Thoughts? Counter? Njoku over Engram?

      MB says:

      Njoku > Engram but I’m holding

          MB says:

          Do it if you need a shake up. Brees is actually a really nice boost. Just hate to give up Ertz

            Also, I originally didn’t know which Allen you were talking about. If it’s Keenan. Yes.

    Have Ito Smith as bench stash, 0.5 PPR. Drop for Ronald Jones or Derrick Henry, or hold? Don’t need anyone this week, but would have to start one of them wk 11 (Smith vDal, Jones @NYG, Henry vNE).

  6. Allan says:

    Snead, Anthony Miller, or Hogan ppr?

      Tough call, leaning Hogan

  7. Nick says:

    Hey man – would you make a last minute swap of the Colts defense for Arizona? I’m in two 10 team standard leagues and have Colts in both leagues…thinking of diversifying and grabbing Arizona in one of those leagues who is at home against SF (& AZ put up 21 pts in SF previously)…

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah diversifying is never a bad idea. It should be a solid play

    • Steinbeck says:
      (link)

      @Nick: FWIW I decided to go ARI for their success v SF at SF and in a hope the coaching shakeup directly or indirectly impacts the D too. Indy did great last week and has a hot mess opponent, but being in the road and a bad D in the real world has me feeling shy for fantasy.

  8. Steinbeck says:

    My healthiest RB2 option (Carson) plays before Mack today (MCCOY is my emergemcy play but has to clear the protocol.

    Would you go with Carson to be safe or count on Mack?

    Thanks

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d hate to sit Mack after what he’s been doing. Sounds like he’s playing

  9. Dave says:

    Hey please pick 2 out of these (one must be RB and it’s PPR) – Doug Martin, Crowell, Greg Olsen, Marvin Jones, Sammy Watkins?

    Also, Cobb or Larry Fitz(PPR) ?

    Thanks!

      Crowell and Watkins. Fitz.

      I wouldn’t. Did I miss something?

      • Foxy says:
        (link)

        No, I just wonder about Pittsburgh going up big and Chubb being fazed out. Shouldn’t overthink it, right?

          MB says:
          (link)

          That hasn’t happened between these two lately. Some pretty close games. Of course now that I say something they will get blown out haha. Yeah I’m playing Chubb. I believe that you are overthinking it.

  11. Rayyy says:
    (link)

    Chubb, kerryon, Mack, breida
    Not a terrible matchup in the bunch. Breida the most dangerous with the injury.
    Pick two in a standard league.

      MB says:

      Chubb and Kerryon

  12. Jumponit says:

  14. Taking back (this) Sunday says:

    Morning man!

    .5 ppr league am I over thinking things to bench OJ Howard to start ben Watson who faces vikes D who are weaker to opposing TEs- last week Jets TE got a TD & week prior seals jones had a solid game 69 receiving yards , ertz had a big game too, or go with Charles clay? I feel bills will be down & will be playing catch-up a ton on Monday & Derek Anderson May need to rely on clay.

    — just worried on the rain cincy for the bucs / bengals game 41% chance of rain with 11 mph winds ,

    Also wondering Tyler Boyd vs Doug Baldwin both at 1. Boyd has a chance of rain either way field will be wet, or Baldwin in the dome in Detroit who most likely gets teez tabor slay doesn’t get too much in slot

    Lol the rams are killing me I need them to officially list kupp as inactive, kupp is in my IR but listed as doubtful now I can’t make any add drops until he’s “out” since and I don’t want to activate him my dropping a player

    I’m going to luck on my side this week I’m already down 43-0 I faced the Watson owner

    Thanks man

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah I’m not benching Howard. Also I’d roll with Baldwin!

      • Taking back (this) Sunday says:
        (link)

        @MB:

        Ever have one of those weeks and it looks like a complete dumpster fire? Yeah that’s me!

        Winston not bad / not great, it’s half time so I need him to throw more yards & TDs after the half & minimize mistakes

        Kerryon Johnson dr jekel & mr Hyde last week great this week he’s done nothing & May cost me this week – the lions may abandon the run considering they are down by a lot

        Doug Baldwin, what did Baldwin do to Russell Wilson? Seriously this is insane Ed Dickson, Tyler Lockett, Moore all have TDs except for Baldwin . As of now he only has 2 rec for 26 yards in the 3rd. Gross

        Oj Howard has been invisible as well- at the half only 2 rec for 30 yards

        What’s frustrating I benched ty Boyd for Baldwin & Boyd is going off on my bench.

        So I’m 100% toast this week currently down 66-27. Opponent still has Diggs, brandin cooks, Jared cook, shady McCoy, rams D, will lutz. His d Watson already played & 43 pts

        I have left: DJ, Hilton, Chris Hogan , Doug Martin, Pats D, mason Crosby.

          Well Howard was good! Jameis might not even board the team jet

          • Taking back (this) Sunday says:
            (link)

            @MB:

            Yes indeed – Howard was good so going forward I hope TB sticks with Fitzpatrick him & Howard seem to have a great connection

            Going forward hold my Hogan or drop him for either Corey Davis , tajae sharpe, or Cole Beasley?

            I’m 100% dropping Winston this upcoming waiver wire , who do you like best for week 9:
            Stafford @ Minnesota

            Dak Prescott home with his new toy amari Cooper vs titans

            Or if Winston isn’t the starter going forward thoughts on adding Fitzpatrick who’s at Carolina.

            I was 6-1 now falling to 6-2

    16 team dynasty ppr.

    Been offered trey burton, cordarrelle, 4th and 5th pick for my allison, LAC, 2nd and 3rd rd pick. My WRs are Julio, tyreek, Alshon, Baldwin, DT, curtis samuel. TEs are gronk, o’shaughnessy, ian Anderson, Mike Roberts. I’m worried about gronks back this year and him retiring in off season. Other def is WAS. There is no other DEF on the wire.

    I like swapping wr depth for burton but think the rest of that deal is not in my favor.

    Whatcha think mb?

    for 2 QB 6 pt TD throws league, 12 teamer dynasty. i have rodgers, mahomes, rosen, brock lobster, drop brock for fitzmagic? daily FAAB WW so i can grab him tonight (and should if i’m going to).

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

      @Eric the Waiter with Hands for Hands: ended up costing 45, i wasn’t willing to put that much up, the team who did clearly needed a QB bad (having only kessler/dak/hill, with tannehill on IR)

  21. What's A Drexl? says:
    (link)

    half PPR 12 teamer redraft.
    QB RW3
    RB (2) gurley, mixon, michel, barner, martin, barber
    WR (2) jeffery, landry, hilton (about to lose for the 2nd time, mostly due to the weeks these 3 had), allison
    TE (1) rudolph, doyle (well we saw doyle look good, sucks in about half the spots i have doyle i was able to keep him benched till he looked good, was one whole drive by himself, rudolph dropped after doyle’s week 9 bye)
    1 flex
    IR (1) kupp
    might just be he wasn’t in shape all the way yet, but drop allison for any of: crowder, c.davis (he seems quite yuck though), dj moore, d.moore (SEA), parker. when michel’s back i can drop barner for somebody else, but should probably hold till then (or even after that maybe if barner is used a lot as insurance, will have an extra WR slot when i dump TE 2 in week 10). due to byes if kupp isn’t back in week 9 i’ll have to play allison.

    12 team dynasty half PPR where receiving yards are 15 per point and rushing 10 per.
    QB (1) wentz (grabbing carr or somebody for week 9)
    RB (1) howard, drake, mack, barber, breida
    WR (2) hopkins, thielen, jeffery, hilton, m.thomas, allison
    TE (1) cook
    1 RB/WR flex
