    10 team standard League with added 10-point bonus at 100 rushing or receiving yards
    Need two flexes
    Josh gordon @ buf, Alshon Jeffery @jax, Golladay vs Seahawks, Baldwin @ Det or Drake @ Houston. I’m leaning Josh Gordon On One Flex but not sure about the other

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Russowl: I’d go with Baldwin and Gordon

  3. Jumponit says:

    Thanks for the great column, 10 team std league:

    Pick 2 RB: Drake, Cohen, J Richard, A Jones
    Pick 2 WR: Brown, Hilton, Allison, Gabriel, Tre’Quan Smith
    Pick 1 Flex RB/WR from ones not picked

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Jumponit: Thanks man! I’d go with Drake and Cohen, Brown and Hilton, and then Gabriel at flex

    yo zach!

    16 team ppr dynasty. TE is gronk and i just don’t trust him for ros and to even come back next year. TEs who might be available are graham and burton. which would you prioritize? would you deal geronimo allison plus a pick (would be somewhere around #30) for either?

    thanks.

    • brian says:
      (link)

      @brian: i’m also in the market for a rb. some who may be on the block are crowell, yeldon, ekeler, gore, breida, alex collins, duke johnson. can you rank them or tier them for me?

      again, it’s dynasty ppr. my currents rbs are leveon, conner, white, hyde, josh adams, barner.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @brian: Burton should have some dynasty appeal as well as well as the Baltimore TE’s, in my opinion. I would never tell anyone to trade Gronk, but if you gave up Gronk to get a TE, you’re going to have to get a better young receiver or running back than Allison imo

    half PPR, my RBs are CMC, james white, kerryon, lamar miller, chubb, clement. chris thompson.

    another owner wants chubb or kerryon. who should i ask for in return. his team has Robert woods, demarious thomas, kennen allen. and should i keep chubb or kerryon?

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Justin: Kerryon is perfectly fine, so I would give up Chubb then.

      • Justin says:
        (link)

        @Zach: who should i ask for in return? robert woods or keenan allen? half PPR

  6. Mikey says:

    No INT deduction…. Keenum, Carr or Flacco?

    • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
      (link)

      @Mikey: for ROS flacco probably easily. season till now certainly that’s the case.

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Mikey: Flacco

    I’ve got Big Ben, Goff, and Winston as my QBs. Obviously can’t keep them all. Which one or two would you drop, and which one do you like most ROS?

    Thanks!!

    • Steve Stevenson says:
      (link)

      @howie2978: Goff’s nothing to sneeze at, but I’m going with a Ben/Jameis combo in one league because their schedules are so complementary (and both are through their byes). Ben faces a bunch of good Ds during the rest of the regular season, but his playoff schedule is nuts–@Oak, NE, @NO. Meanwhile Winston doesn’t face a good D until Baltimore in wk 15 (and he gets NO in wk 14 as well). That said, I usually don’t hold 2 QB in a single QB league unless league rules make it prohibitive not to (as in the above league).

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @howie2978: I would have to drop Winston by default, and then I like Goff ROS

  8. Tradedeshaun? says:

    Quick question:

    Would you trade deshaun Watson and Royce Freeman for russel Wilson and C mcaffery?

    2 qb league:
    Qb: Watson/Mariota/Rivers/Anderson
    Rb: Coleman, Smallwood, Mack, Royce,
    WR: AB/ Diggs/ Jeffery/ Baldwin
    TE: Kelce

    I like having options at qb, it’s a keeper league and Watson can be kept one more year for $1. I fear he’s hurt all year though wonder if it’s time to move on.

    Thanks.

    Whom shall it. be in the almighty flex
    G. Allison
    Cobb
    chubb
    Tre quan smith

    • Mr. A Knife says:

      @Donaldson: chubb for sure in standard, probably anyway.

    Trade Royce Freeman for isiaah Crowell?

  11. Mak says:
    (link)

    what you think about this trade: James Connor, Hopkins, revin Coleman for kamara and Landry and Yeldon.. Half PPR. What u think? I’ll be getting the kamara side.

    • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
      (link)

      @Mak: revin coleman is such a superior name for a RB than tevin, it really is.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Mak: I don’t mind it too much, but I’d rather have the Connor side

      • Mak says:
        (link)

        @Zach: what if I took out Coleman from that offer and just did Connor and Hopkins for kamara and Landry?

  12. James says:
    (link)

    Latavius Murray or Kenyan Drake this week?

    Can’t seem to get the fact that drake is going to be on the field all game since the phone lost most of their WRs…

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @James: Drake

      @tradewatson?: Yes, I’d go with that trade

  14. rollshasaflat says:

    Phillep Lindseys owner has a stable of backs and I’m wondering if he’d take Royce Freeman for Crowell to cuff one of his regular starters (Lindsey)

    would you do that trade?

  15. Nightpandas says:

    Hey Zach

    I’m sitting at 3-4 in a 16 team std

    Start 2 wr 2 rb 2 flex

    Wr: Golloday /J Gordon /Lockett /Baldwin /Gabriel /Meridith
    Rb: Conner / Bell /Hines /Duke J /Barner /Henry /Foreman

    Was offered Jones II and Kirk for my Baldwin and Kirk

    Should I stay put or go? There is no one on the wire for Rb

    • Nightpandas says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: maybe just Baldwin for the two

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: Hey there! I’d go with Conner and Hines, and then Baldwin/Meredith.

      RoJo isn’t going to help your RB corps, so I wouldn’t do that trade.

    Hold Ito Smith through the bye to see how things shake out, or drop him for Henry, Barber or Mike Davis? .5 PPR, looking primarily toward late season stashes.

    • steve stevenson says:
      (link)

      @steve stevenson: R. Jones and Sproles also available. Related question–because of byes I’ll need to start one of these guys week 11. Their matchups then are: I. Smith vDal, Henry @Ind, Barber/Jones @NYG, Davis vGB, Sproles @NO.

    • Zach

      Zach says:
      (link)

      @steve stevenson: I would hold onto Ito out of the other RBs you’ve got there

  17. Jack says:

    10 team, .5 pt PPR flex – Landry, Lindsay, or A.P.? Thx.

    • Zach

      Zach says:

      @Jack: Landry

  18. Justin says:
    (link)

    would you do any of these trades in half PPR;

    lamar miller for john brown
    lamar miller for Kenny golladay
    lamar miller and chubbs for julio
    james white for diggs
    CMC for thielen/julio
    james white for keenan allen
