I know we have football starting pretty early tomorrow, and since we’ll all either be cooking, eating, and napping (or all of them at once, like me!), here are your Thanksgiving Day rankings a bit earlier than usual… (Happy Holidays everyone!)

Special Note: I just wanted to mention that our very own Tehol Beddict has been absolutely incredible the past month with his calls. A fourth place finish in Week 10 was followed up by a number one overall finish in Week 11. Be sure to check out his rankings here! And as always, if you need the hard data (hey baby) and projections, be sure to check out Rudy’s Pigskinator!

Select the “Flex” tab if you need a more complete picture to decide your starts and sits. Use the “OP” tab for 2QB Leagues. And you can access our Half PPR and PPR rankings using the drop down box in the top left of our rankings when you select the RB, WR, TE, or Flex positions. Any and all questions will be answered below…

Getting hit at WR this week. Looks like Diggs is out and Moncrief with a hammy and a back up is no good.

Will have to roll out Landry, Pryor and ????

.5 PPR

Could put out:
Boyd vs Balt
Theilen vs Det
Or dare I say Sammy Wat vs Jax

Pick one bro, this game deciedes my division this week.

So hard to trust the Minny offense.

The guy I’m playing dropped Watkins who was his 2nd rounder in our keeper league…the irony of having him bite him in the you know what is appealing….

If Diggs is out (I see you have him ranked high) do you have Thielen above any of TY Hilton, Sanders, Pryor, or Michael Thomas (PPR) or keep those 4 in?

Thanks!

Jay,
Despite the fact that I’m the overall points leader in one of my leagues, I am 6-5 and need to win out in order to make the playoffs.
I’ve been riding the Seattle D all year, but I picked up the Titans this week, and the Steelers D is available. I have few question marks other than which D to start (oh, and I’m leaning Jordan Howard over Davontae Booker due to the sheer volume the Chi RBs are gonna get)
Thoughts on these two positions?

@Jay: Yeah, I guess with my RB2 this week, I’m looking for highest floor. I’m rocking David Johnson with my RB1 and Antonio Brown is my WR1. Between those two, Olsen and Cousins, I’m expecting the goodness. Everyone else just needs to chip in here and there.

@Jay: hilton/cobb/hopkins/t.williams (SD) for 3 spots ahead of this roster spot. i’m guessing this might change if one of those CIN guys goes apeshit this week (of course if that happens my last waiver (reset every week) wouldn’t get that guy anymore)

In this league where David Johnson and Sanders was just traded for Gordon and Jordy. In my mind Sanders is basically droppable so it seems sort of lopsided since Johnson isnt much better than Gordon. This is like the 20th trade in this league it’s a little rediculous I don’t mind trades but thus is way to many in my opinion hell why not play DFF. Anyway I’m a little pissed off because 2 trades through the year were proposed to me that I accepted were vetoed. Just wanted to get your thoughts on this pirtocular trade. TY

Making a playoff push in my .5 PPR league and am deciding between Tate and L.Murray in my flex. Also have Beasley as a third option.

And you say you hate Palmer this week? Should I start Winston over him or grab Tyrod Taylor off waivers?

Last time Detroit played Minny, I didn’t start my Stafford/Tate combo. It was the right move until an overtime TD hookup. I hate both of them again this week. Stafford isn’t throwing TD’s, Tate has TWO double digit point games all year and that Minn defense is still good. The ONLY reason I’m starting them is because I can watch it today. But they do not have my endorsement and I think they both should be ranked last. Yes last! ~Rant over

@Cram It: wow, not owning tate i didn’t know that, but owning marv jones in a few spots i find it surprising. probably shouldn’t find it that less surprising since i do have stafford as either half the time starter (cousins) or backup (brees)

Qb: Russell Wilson
Rb: Spencer Ware
Rb: Frank Gore
Wr: Julio Jones
Wr: Doug Baldwin
Wr: Devante Adams
Te: Jordan Reed
Flex: Robert Kelley

I’m nervous about starting Kelley, Reed, and Gore all today cause offense Thursdays look sluggish in the short week and I’ll be limited for options rest of week. Their matchups aren’t bad however. On my bench I have Brandon Marshall, Dion Lewis, Travis Benjamin, Sammy Watkins

My opponent will be starting Crowder and maybe one of Marvin Jones/ Golden Tate.

@Funk: So I guess really my question is would this be my most effective lineup? Adams and Marshall are probably the least trustworthy to me but opponent is starting Aaron Rodgers so not sure if that makes Adams a better play situationally

Hold Meredith as second bench WR or handcuff with Andre in PPR? I’m leaning to handcuff if Ellington would have a shot to be solid RB2 as a starter.

Happy Holiday!

Im in a PPR league and we are in our final 2 weeks. Somehow i’m fighting for last place with the 4th most points scored in the league. Ive got laveon and booker in RB slots, Edelman and Kelvin benjamin in WR. Would you go lamar miller instead of crowder? Crodwer has been my odd man out all year and has been killing me on my bench and lamar has been high flow low ceiling as of now. Maybe switch crowder with Benjamin?

seriously COOTER (said like jerry saying “newman!”), ebron gets it nasty like that. really. i didn’t see that game but dude better have gotten hurt or needed blocking all damn game or something. MIN 20th vs TE’s. i did at least go with rudolph over you jaywrong (from FP’s top 40 in standard TE’s rankings had rudolph like ONE higher, and even then i wanted to flex (2 flexes) ebron, but thank god didn’t). in another PPR played ebron over ertz (don’t need to win as much there though, 10-1, but garcon + ebron doesn’t likely make for a win either)

Happy Thankgsgiving All!

I have been running out Winston all year as my QB and Rivers is now sitting on my FA list as well as Kaepernick. Based on my roster below, are either worth adding at the expense of losing someone below?

QB – Winston
RB – D Johnson, L Miller, J Howard, M Ingram, D Lewis, K Dixon
WR – J Matthews, M Crabtree, J Crowder, T Williams, T Boyd
TE – T Eifert

I am intrigued by the light schedule streaming that a Winston/Rivers duo may offer.

Any thoughts?

Thanks jay! Keep my flex as is with Shepard or move either Hopkins, or Smallwood there? I’m torn between Shepard vs browns or Smallwood vs packers D. Packers d doesn’t look good, plus it’s a home game too for the Eagles

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Which kicker would you rather have ROS? Matt Bryant or Josh Lambo? I think Bryant is generally more productive than Lambo, but Lambo’s schedule seems quite a bit easier/better. I ask because I have Lambo but someone in my league just dropped Bryant. Thanks!

@Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: grabbed watkins over marv jones, this list seems close to jones, but gotta think by week 14 (or earlier even) when playoffs start watkins’ upside is pretty damn high, that and FP ROS PPR rankings (using only the ones not ranked below 40th, and ONLY recently ranked, even if that means grabbing names who don’t have values from i guess not putting rankings in often enough to count towards it); thinking being somebody else in league notices he’s out there in next 6 or so hours.
