Welcome to the Razzball Streamer article. I’m going to keep the intro short tonight as I prepare for my debut podcast appearance with my fellow Razzballians.  We will talk about football, West World and perhaps even the debate, so be on the look out for that to come out.  We have had quite the week of running back injuries, surprise bye week torn ACLs, and other really weird stuff.  So we have plenty of streaming options which makes my job easy.  So let’s get right to it!

Ty Montgomery, 31% Owned – Montgomery had himself quite the week against the Cowboys and is in line to see a lot of touches against the Chicago Bears with Eddie Lacy being held out with a kankle injury.  Even if he doesn’t see enough carries from a traditional running back sense, he should be able to see a lot of touches as the 3rd receiving option.  The match verses the Bears is also pretty nice as Aaron Rodgers looks to quiet his naysayers.

Alex Smith, 32% Owned – Let’s go back to the well once more.  Alex Smith was a no-brainer last week against Oakland but the weather did not cooperate.  I’m willing to try anything twice, except for a lot of things, but I would try streaming Alex Smith twice.  New Orleans is still very trash against the pass, even if their pass rush did look better against the Panthers last week.  Like I said last week, Alex Smith is able to take advantage of good matchups (see: Week 1, San Diego, and garbage time during Week 4 against Pittsburgh).

Jaquizz Rodgers, 34% Owned – It looks like Doug Martin will be out at least for this week.  Jaquizz was great against Carolina going for over 100 yards rushing and he saw a lot of touches as the only real viable option out of the backfield.  The 49ers are tied with the Indianapolis Colts for giving up the most fantasy points to running backs (141.)  I expect my Buccaneers to be up 63-0 by halftime so that should lead to a lot of touches for Jaquizz in the second half.  In all seriousness, Koetter is trying to eliminate mistakes from Jameis Winston by establishing the run, so the work will definitely be there for him.

Andrew Hawkins, 0% Owned – Terrelle Pryor being is bothered by a hamstring strain and did not practice on Wednesday, you may not know this unless you are a Terrelle Pryor owner.  Players do not play well when they try and play through a hamstring injury.  I’ve seen Mike Evans do it plenty of times.  Hawkins has at least 48 yards in the past 2 games including a touchdown two weeks ago.  One would think that Hawkins is next in line to grab targets from Kessler who is low-key not that bad.  I could see Terrelle Pryor being a decoy if he’s on the field which should be good thing for Hawkins, I’m telling you, hamstring injuries are very uncomfortable when your legs are your biggest weapon.

New York Giants DST, 14% Owned – They are playing Jeff Fisher’s offense after a long flight to London.  If you’re just joining us, the Rams don’t score very many points.

Baltimore Ravens DST, 48% Owned – Baltimore’s defense is coming off of 2 straight games of scoring at least 10 points. The Jets are coming off a 3 point performance against Arizona.  Not having Eric Decker has really derailed Fitzpatrick’s offense.  The Jets are turnover prone, so this should be a home run.

    so what to do with Ty Montgomery?

    in my PPR league I have no flex but 3 WR slots, I have: who should I choose? seems like Montgomery will get ALOT of touches

    WR: L fitzgerald
    WR: M Crabtree
    WR: C Merideth

    B: T Montgomery
    B: D Thomas
    B: D parker

    In my standard league, no flex I have:

    WR: J Jones
    WR: E Sanders
    WR: T Benjamin

    B: T Montgomery
    B: M Floyd
    B: G Tate

    been disappointed all season in benjamin

      @Blake: I’d play montgomery over Benjamin, Tyrell seems to be the guy. I would also consider Tate over E. Sanders depending on Sander’s health, he looked pretty bad at the end of the chargers game.

      I’d stick to your guns in the 1st league, I can’t justify sitting Meredith

      @Blake: I’d stick to your guns in your 1st league and I’d play montgomery over Benjamin in the 2nd league. I would also consider Tate over E Sanders, that ankle looked bad.

        @Unbreakable MB:

        didnt sanders hurt his hip? not ankle, they say he is fine though. Tate has a brutal matchup I think

          @Blake: probably, it’s been a while since I looked into it, I think you’re right. What’s new lol

          @Blake: also Tate moves around formations a lot I don’t think Norman will follow him. Washington will give up a couple TDs through the air this week despite only giving up 6 this year. If sanders is a go, go for it,

    PPR, need 2. go with james white, tyrell williams, or ty montgomery?

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Brian: James White and Tyrell Williams

      @William Hung: 11 out of 10 TBH. Only 2 better half hour comedies I can think of right now. You’re the Worst and Atlanta

  4. Comatose says:

    Start one, gotta decide by tonight: Knile, Don Johnson, Latavius, Dwayne Washington

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Comatose: I’d put latavious in and play Dwayne Washington if latavious sits again. I don’t trust either of those packers tonight

  5. G says:
    (link)

    PPR…My TE is Ertz. My WRs are Julio, Mike Wallace, Wiods, Dorsette, Enunywa, Shepard, John Brown, and Watkins (IR). Was offered Rudolp for Shepard. Go for it? We start three WR and I have a bunch of mediocre guys behind Julio. Thanks in advance man.

      @G: yes I’d do it. I like Rudolph a ton.

  6. Funk says:
    (link)

    With news that McCoy is out week 7 it seems like Gillslee should be a favorite stream this week and perhaps several more. My question for you is to pick 3 to start (2 rbs, 1 flex) out of Gillslee, Charles, Ware, Mckinnion and Gore. My original thought was to go with Charles, Ware, and Gore hoping Charles and Ware could split up 30 points and let my wrs do the heavy lifting (Jones Marshall Baldwin) but now I’m not sure if I should get Gillslee in there as a rb which leave flex open for Charles, Ware, or deeper bench options like Yeldon, Coates, and McKinnon

    • Funk says:

      @Funk: Also its a half ppr league 10 teams

    • MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Funk: I would play gillslee, Charles, and Gore. And yes I wrote this before McCoy was ruled but he certainly would have made it. Buffalo will run the ball a ton still, its mostly next man up,(obviously he’s not as good as Lesean) I love Charles upside, and I’d rather play Gore than McKinnon. Gore has a better chance to produce on a weekly basis in my opinion.

    What do you think about dropping Willie Snead for Kenny Britt?

    • MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @maximumxpower: you should do that, Kenny Britt is going to keep getting targets and being the Ram’s best option

  8. Cole Mossel says:
    (link)

    Would you pickup James White, Mike Gillislee, Asiata/McKinnon, or Knile Davis? Also the RBs you mentioned are all taken already so I would’ve taken them if I could’ve.

    My RBs have been pretty eh this season especially lamar miller. My other two rbs are Demarco Murray and Latavius Murray

    Thanks

      @Cole Mossel: James white is the best option right now but long term it’s either knile Davis or McKinnon (yuck)

  9. Wentzylania bound says:
    (link)

    Good dilemma. But a dilemma none the less. Have Julio and alshon as wr but need to pick between t Benjamin, Cobb and hurns as my flex. All good options this week IMO, any suggestions?

    • Wentzylania bound says:

      @Wentzylania bound: also ppr league with bonuses for 40 yd plays 100 yd games and 1st downs.

      @Wentzylania bound: if you didn’t start Cobb I would go Benjamin

      • say it with me now, boDEga says:
        (link)

        @Unbreakable MB: thanks unbreakable. i have gotten 3 votes for benjamin and two for hurns. I like both matchups. but i am sure i will pick the one that doesn’t put up numbers case in point alshon of course getting the crappy break with hoyer. and cobb going off!

          Unbreakable MB says:

          @say it with me now, boDEga: I’m pretty confident in Benjamin especially with the upside of those bonuses. You are welcome!

    Hunter Henry or Zach Miller?

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @JRJ: hope you went Henry

  11. I have Le’Veon Bell, Christine Michael, Spencer Ware, Matt Jones, Ryan Mathews & Ameer Abdullah (IR) so I by passed one week wonders like Jaquizz Rodgers, Ty Montgomery, Mike Gillislee, Devontae Booker & Mike Davis. I used my open slot for Dion Lewis. Do you think he has the most upside for ROS over those options? I was thinking about Booker pretty hard. What do you think Mr. Unbreakable? There is still time to make the switch. Thanx!

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @madden_curser: long term, yes, especially since you aren’t in any rush with that roster

  12. Alex Prado says:
    (link)

    is dion Lewis taking whites job when he comes back?

    • @Alex Prado: It might be. I’m just tossing the dice hoping to find another diamond. Would you rather have Booker? Who has the most upside ROS? Thanks Alex.

      • Alex Prado says:
        (link)

        @madden_curser: in ppr I’d rather have white or lewis….if u have white and room on your bench and your record is 5-1 like myself I’d roster Lewis and see how it plays out…either way your gonna have a bad ass rb 1 or a 2 in ppr

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Alex Prado: I think he will be eased in, James White is playing too good to just lose his job right away

  13. William Hung says:

    I need a TE with Olsen on bye – my available options to drop are: Rashad Jennings, Matt Jones, Kenny Britt, Arian Foster, DeVante Parker, Dion Lewis

    .5 PPR league

      @William Hung: Doyle is a good play this week if he’s not available. Charles Clay. I’d drop Arian Foster. Not himself and not a good offense 4 him

      @Josh-NYC: not being a prisoner of the moment but Davante Adams and Michael Floyd has to do something at some point.
