Another Sunday is upon us! We’re in the middle of bye week season and doing the best to scrap together winning lineups to make the playoff push. We do have a game in London this week and I’m wondering if the Ram’s fan base will be bigger across seas than it is in L.A. Russell Wilson will continue his MVP campaign against the Matt Ryan-less Atlanta Falcons. The Bears host the Chargers and it’s probably a valid question if you’re asking yourself if any of these teams will be able to score. Sam Darnold will try and shake the ghosts that have been haunting him as the Jets travel to Jacksonville. 

Who knows what we’ll get from the Raiders when they visit Houston on Sunday, but if you believe the words of Jarvis Landry, the Browns are going to beat the Patriots. The Carolina Panthers should match up very well against the 49ers, and I’m also not sleeping on the Mahomes-less Chiefs against the Packers to close out the day. Whatever happens today, it should be another entertaining Sunday. Best of luck to each and every one of you. Let’s see what injuries we have.

    Now that Brees is active, would you start Brees or Tannenhill?

      Brees

    Seems like D Johnson isn’t going to play which makes Edmonds starter. The other day I asked and you had him benched over some of my other guys but curious if that changes here. Based on past results id be inclined to make chark wr2, bench woods, and start Edmonds, but I’m not as savvy on the matchups they have. League is not ppr-

    RB1: McCaffery
    Rb2: Ekeler
    Wr1: Hopkins
    Wr2: Woods
    te: kittle
    Flex: chark

    Bench: Edmonds, J Williams, sutton

      Yeah it changes, I’d star Edmonds over Ekeler

    MIA is just ridiculous and has been for at least the last 2 regimes, probably at least 3. few years back when ajayi had a nice cheap contract and was a recent all pro they moved him for what in a fantasy league would’ve been a collusion trade. now they want to get that much back on drake, and i like drake, but ajayi was straight up awesome at the time they moved him. drake will now be their 3rd in a row RB that they’ve completely jerked around with playing time when he was their best RB at the time (l.miller, ajayi, drake)

      MB says:
      (link)

      Oh boy, what do they want?

      • Mr. A Knife says:
        (link)

        they only want a 4th, which was crazy low for ajayi, here it’s probably not that weird, but i’d still think too cheap.

    • Mordacious Leavator says:

      have DET D this week but could in just under 2 hours get ahead of the next FAAB cycle and nab NYJ or SEA D’s for next week, later DET D gets dropped for either d.adams being back or somebody else. a.wilson never got those possibly massive slot targets he was projected at at start of season.

    Minshew and/or Darnold over Rivers? Or is this just over thinking Rivers @ da Bears?

      I’d roll out Minshew. Not overthinking at all, he ain’t Deshaun Watson haha

    Good problem to have: I know rankings are above, but now we are sure Jacobs, Edmonds, and Murray are all playing. I can start 3 (in standard, not PPR) of Edmonds, Jacobs, Ty Johnson, Mack, and Murray. Which would you go with?
    Thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:

      I’d go Edmonds Jacobs Mack

    Half ppr. Would you swap my ekeler, ty will, a Jones, latavious for his h henry, woods, mack, Mike Williams? Seems like a no brainer to me but I second guess myself. Got plenty of other backs- edmunds, Le’Veon, Conner, breida.

  15. Andrew says:

    Having a tough time deciding between starting Edmonds or Latavius Murray this week.

    With Brees coming back from injury and that NO will probably be up, I feel like Murray will get a ton of work. Thoughts?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Murray

  16. Esteban says:
    (link)

    My one league does a swap and drop for Thursday night players. I picked up cousins but he only put up 12 pts for me Thursday. I’m not keeping him past this week so is it worth the swap and drop for tannehill? Hope for a bigger game? Got stuck playing terry Thursday too and that wasn’t worth it but I have a harder time straight dropping him at this point. Holding out for a big game and trade potential still.

  17. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:

    k.allen active, but might be a decoy anyway. guessing dorsett (sanu can’t possibly play a ton just yet i’d think) over k.allen still? could also bench everett here instead for allen.

    • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
      (link)

      at least unlike with DJ last week there’s actually evidence for us benching k.allen here this week. nobody should feel like it was a bad idea to bench him today, whereas last week nobody should’ve thought to bench DJ or start edmonds (unless you were very weak somewhere to put edmonds in)

    • Mike in Busan says:
      (link)

      In a similar boat; but I’m having to start Dorsett regardless. I’m looking at Keenan or either Beasley or Ginn.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d start Dorsett

  18. toolshed says:

    Start Keenum allen or crowder? .5 ppr. Allen playing but was a gametime decision with a hammy amd is at chi. Thx

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Crowder

  19. Alex says:
    (link)

    Allen or Sutton ppr. Allen active but afraid he won’t be as effective cause of his hamstring

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Sutton. Allen on limited snaps

      • Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey says:
        (link)

        i think k.allen was never hurt at all, getting more target share than in weeks.

  20. Mike in Busan says:
    (link)

    Keenan Allen, Beasley, or Ginn? Sad question, right?
    Also, I’m right to go Brees over Brissett, right? Jacoby’s got Denver, sure, but Brees is gonna have a field day with the Cards’ D right? He’s out there getting in work against a “real” D to prepare for the latter half, right? Why else bother unless it’s to make up for lost time? Winning would happen even with Teddy, Am I overthinking an easy decision?

    • Mike in Busan says:
      (link)

      Oh, PPR league for WR question.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Ginn

      • Mike in Busan says:
        (link)

        Didn’t see your reply until kickoff; went with Beasley. Fortunately, I’ve also got Mike Evans.
        Damn, he can just take over, can’t he?

  21. crossmyfingers says:
    (link)

    need to pick between mark Walton and duke Johnson. I have Deshaun Watson so I was hypothesizing a Watson/duke screen td pass play for upside, although diversifying sounds good too.
    what would you do?

    thanks

      Johnson

    • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
      (link)

      really, when’s the last time DET consistently actually gave carries to a single RB AND that guy did well regularly, carry-on included. some people around here could’ve had offspring now in like probably jr high since the last time.
