    I have Leveon Bell and need to pick up 1 of the following (I also have Rashaad Penny) Carson or Connor. We can only have 3 RB’s on the roster but now have an extra spot so I could have up to 4 RB’s. I currently have Bell, Mixon, and Penny. Do you drop penny or wait to see what he can do?

    • Brent

      @cole: Get Conner Now!!! Bell could be out until Week 10

      • Brent

        @Brent: Drop Penny for Conner unless you have someone else you can drop

      @cole: Yeah I would definitely go with Connor over Penny. I don’t know if Bell is going to be out for 10 weeks, but it’s a very confusing saga with what’s happening now in Pittsburgh.

        @Zach:

        Thank you for the advise. sorry for the double entry but it did not show up when I sent the first one hence the duplicate.

    So kind of in a strange league. 12 team H2H but we have very strict roster limits. WE have to carry 2 QB’s 3RB’s 4 WR’s 2 Kickers 2 DST. We start 1 QB, 2 RB, 3WR 1k 1dst. we have closed bidding free agents every Wednesday and our pot grows big due to having to over bid to make sure you get players. This year after much negotiation, we added an extra roster spot that can be filled by any positions. This leads me to my question.
    My 3 drafted RB’s Bell, Mixon and Rashad Penny. I need to pick up someone to fill in for Bell this weekend as I do not believe he will see many reps. Should I grab Conner with a good match up against Cleveland or Carson with a bad match up against Denver?

    Thanks for the help, also we are standard scoring non PPR. 1 pt per 10 yards and 6 for TD’s.

    thanks,

      @ T Cole Anderson:

      Wilkins is available in Indi as well and has a higher projection for this week.

      Zach says:

      @T Cole Anderson: I would go with Conner for right now

    If you had an open spot who would you use to fill it in a fairly deep league. John Brown (looks good, but has been hurt last couple or years, has the sickle cell issue, he thought some of his health issue was due to a cyst on his spine ). Trequan smith (looks great and a playmaker, saints have done well with rookie wr, only a 33 year old ginn and Meredith who is coming back from acl tear are in his way), or ivory (shady has a lot of mileage and legal issues). Thanks

      Zach says:

      @Scott: That’s tough but I’d go with Brown

    Already starting Tate at WR. Double up with Marvin Jones at the flex or run Ajayi there?

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @976: I would double-up with Jones

    that’s funny before even asking this i slotted conner right behind ekeler for the ROS ranking. i have the late draft here in just over 2 hrs. this is right where you have him for this week, but what about ROS? (PPR)

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Eli Man Penguin Boy: ROS for Conner, I’m not sure just yet. If Bell doesn’t play until Week 10, or gets traded, he’ll be a top-20 running back for sure. However, if Bell plays before Week 10, I’m not too sure about where he’ll end up

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        @Zach: i’m sticking him at around ekeler area (mind you i have ekeler probably higher than most, using a mix of rudy and the top 30 RB PPR rankers for last year at FP) so that’s like 105th-110th. clearly you’d want to PAY more for conner than ekeler though (maybe not as a melgor owner)

    16 team standard…..Bell….what to do? I don’t have Connor…..got offered Burkhead for him

    will probably stay put for now…

    have Drake and Lynch as well with Samuel and Martin on the bench. Any of these guys worth dropping Beasley for? Buck Allen, Rob Kelley, Hines, Gore

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @nightpandas: I would stay put for now, as for Bell, it’s not looking like he’s gonna play, so you should bench him. However it’s looking like Burkhead might be a full-go, which is good for you! I’d keep Beasley for now.

    Is Daniel Carlson a good stream this week? I currently own Jake Elliot but seems like he’s not a “great” start since nick foles is QB. What u suggest? Gano and vinateiri also available.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Justin: Out of all the kickers you named, I’d probably roll with Vinatieri just because that game should be really high-scoring.

    Le’Veon Bell owner here. 1/2 pt. PPR league. Please rank my RB options:

    – James Conner
    – Jordan Wilkins
    – Duke Johnson

    Thanks!

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @mike: Conner, Johnson, Wilkins. Get Conner ASAP

    Zach! How are you? Mind helping me out? Should I start Crosby or pick up Carlson? Start Bengals D or pick up AZ or DET for week one.

    Thanks again
