    I have a bunch of questionable RBs this week… due to either injury or matchup. I usually have a RB in my Flex position, with Kittle on my bench all year with Ertz in my starting TE spot. Should I consider starting Kittle in the Flex in place of guys like Ware, Breida, Drake, A. Peterson?

      Zach says:

      @RyGuy: Yes. Ware might not even play, and if he does he’s not Hunt, and he’s not performing well. Breida probably won’t go as well, AP has the toughest matchup in the NFL this week, and Kenyan Drake needs a hook and latter miracle play to finish with 14 fpts. Start Kittle and Ertz

        Kittle is in…. is it safe to start A. Jones against CHI? Or Should I throw KC Williams in instead? Its a better match up.

        • Zach

          Zach says:

          @RyGuy: I would still start Jones over Williams

          • RyGuy says:
            (link)

            Well thank god I didn’t see this until after the game started and I had Williams in my RB2 slot! It the gutsy moves like that that they will be talking to their grandchildren about!

            That being said, Jones and Kittle for the Flex position… who you taking?

              @RyGuy: I would start Jones over Kittle in the flex

                Again… thank god I didn’t listen.

    I have to fill 2 flex spots and a wr from these guys: Howard, a robinson, Humphries, Damien Williams, pettis. .5 ppr. Which 3 do I go with? Btw I have Aaron Jones and Cohen in my 2 rb spots. I don’t like Jones matchup, but not sure I can sit him. Thanks

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Scott: Howard, Robinson and Pettis for me.

    Dynasty question. 10 team, ppr. I have ebron, kittle and Henry at tight end. A guy desperately needs a te.
    My receivers. K. Allen , Tate. Landry, Watkins, Boyd, and lockette.

    With that being said, Julio for Henry/Boyd which side you taking in a dynasty?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Chisoxx22: I’d rather have Julio than Henry/Boyd. Ebron and Kittle are just fine for this year and on

    Thanks for all the help this year Zach and friends….

    semi finals, 12 team std keep 3

    QB Cam
    RB Gurley, Kamara
    WR Thielen, MThomas
    Flex: DJMoore and Jeff Wilson
    TE Rudolph
    D: Ravens
    K: Who cares

    BN: Ware, Corey Davis, Thompson, McCoy, JKelly, Cowboys

    Would you make any changes? Little concerned about Cam but only have 1 move left for the year

    Best available FA: C Samuel, J Allen, Baker

      @nightpandas: Thank you so much for following along with us Nightpandas! I wouldn’t make any moves, this lineup is good just the way it is!

    Hey Zach, we made the Semi’s in all 3 of my leagues…woo hoo…but now the hard decisions are here….need your expert advice…all PPR leagues:

    1. Ebron (vs Dal) or Kittle (vs Sea)
    2. Pettis (vs Sea) or J Howard (vs GB)
    3. ARob (vs GB) or Pettis (vs Sea)
    4. If Melvin Gordon doesn’t play tonight…choose between J Jackson, ARob or Pettis?

    Thanks man, much appreciated all the advice!!

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Johnny Be Good: Congrats homie! Ebron (it’s close), Pettis, ARob, and then Aarob.

      Thank you for the question!

    Worried about Rivers @ KC, I know I am minority but in a league that DOES NOT count INT or FL would you say I am nuts for going with Josh Allen over Rivers? KC at home, gonna be tough…

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @IrishMike: I hear what you’re saying, but Rivers is still the better fantasy option over Allen. Sure, Allen has upside, but in a CRUCIAL division game, Rivers isn’t going to disappoint. And while KC will be at home, their defense is still a liability. If Derek Carr can carve them up, and LAC carved them up earlier in the season, I have no doubt that Rivers can do it again tonight

    Alright guys, you’ve been helping me out all year, let’s see if you can get this tough playoff flex play decision for me:

    Larry Fitz
    Derrick Henry
    Corey Davis
    Matt Breida (if he plays)

    • Mike says:
      (link)

      @Mike: It’s a full PPR scoring league.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Mike: If I’m only choosing one, I’m going with Corey Davis

  8. is Trey ok? says:
    (link)

    been rolling out Trey Burton all year & it hasn’t been pretty lately. V.Davis or even Firkser over him this week, or do I die on Trey Burton Hill?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @is Trey ok?: I’d go with Firkser. Not sure if Trey Boo Boo can get it done Sunday

  9. Abe Froman says:
    (link)

    Can you rank Damien Williams, Boyd, or Jarvis Landry? Need 2 in a standard league for the semis

    -Ware is out, but hearing West is going to get touches (8-12 per one source)
    -Boyd has a nice matchup, but Jeff Driskel
    -Landry has gone off the last 2 weeks, but with a slightly concerning target share

    Thoughts?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Abe Froman: Of course! I’d go with Jarvis, Boyd and then Williams. If you need two, I’d go with Landy and Boyd.

    If Lamar Jackson was actually Balt Team QB, meaning you get both him and Flacco)would that change his spot, and if so, how much?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @The sportsguy: So I will update my ranking spot now that he’s off the injury report. The reason why I had him lower is because I wasn’t sure the severity of his ankle injury, and if he would play a full game if his ankle acts up or he struggles. But even if you just have “Baltimore Team QB”, it’s still a good spot for him

  11. Jake says:

    I got a big decision to make should I play Mullens or Carr over Cam ? I dont trust Cam at all with his gimpy shoulder last 2 weeks they have brought the backup in this is a huge risk during this week against a tough D. I could see the SF game being a shootout and Mullens has been getting better.

    Thanks

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Jake: I wouldn’t get too cute with it. Dance with who’s brought you here. I understand the matchup could be a bit tougher than usual but I still like Cam over Mullens/Carr

  12. Ron P says:
    (link)

    I had Keenan Allen and now I need to swing for the fences to give my team a fighting chance. Who has the higher ceiling in each matchup?

    1) Kittle vs SEA or Gronk vs PITT?
    2) A. Jones vs CHI or Miller vs VYJ?

    Thanks.

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Ron P: Jones has more upside than Kittle, and floor due to the fact that RB’s score higher usually than TE’s when comparing them in a flex spot
