Welcome to week 4 of this NFL season. Ratings are booming on Thursday nights, the games are good, football is football again. If you weren’t aware, I’ll be taking in the scenery at Soldier Field watching the Bear’s defensive line eat Ryan Fitzpatrick alive. I will be handling most of your morning questions, but any questions that I don’t get to, Reid has you covered. Reid will also be leading off the game reviews on Monday and I will have a follow up around lunchtime. If you’d like to check out our rankings, we have some from ZachJay, and myself.

Weather

Everything looks clear right now. All systems go for everybody.

1. 14 team PPR. i’ll list by who i’m thinking of starting, you correct if differing.
QB (1) luck
RB: (2) crowell, montgomery (cobb messed up, somebody is getting those short throws), morris, ivory (i guess ivory starts IF doesn’t start AND mccoy doesn’t?)
WR (3) AB, callaway, goodwin, baldwin, marshall, jeffery, a.wilson
TE (1) vance, doyle
1 flex and which of baldwin, jeffery, a.wilson, morris is this?
IR (2) burkhead, mixon (and drafted mixon/mckinnon as top 2 picks (we keep 2 players))

2. who’s my drop (if any) for RJ2 (TB), i need any sort of RB depth i can get (thus owning ivory). probably marshall as his value falls to shit with baldwin back.

it’s very obvious morris the RB #2 here IF breida is out. the issue with that is that montgomery plays hours earlier, so morris would be the flex probably for sure in that case. cobb is a gametime, but it’s not a good gametime (no sat practice), pretty sure historically those should %wise count for doubtful.

@Yr Never Too Old For Balloons: Crowell and Morris. Montgomery is pretty speculative but I get it.

AB, Callaway, and Baldwin

2. I’d drop somebody for RoJo. From who you listed Ivory unless I missed someone.

Even if Breida plays, I think that it’s a 20 touch day for Morris.

@Yr Never Too Old For Balloons: I’m just not sure on Jeffery today. I think I’d still play him over Montgomery in your flex

12 team PPR.
QB wentz, tannehill (obtained when i realized he might have better matchup, tried to get dalton/winston days ago, weekly waivers, somebody worse than me got him, but now mayfield got dropped, i’ll try that)
RB: barkley, coleman, ajayi, clement, royce
WR: fitz (wait and see on him i’m thinking if have similar ranked options), k.allen, callaway, shepard, jeffery, cobb
TE: watson,
IR doyle
1 flex

going by fantasy pros PPR top 30 this year rankers (for PPR flex anyway) i should go
RB (2) barkley, coleman (ajayi SUPER low, possibly since these rankings were earlier in week)
WR (2) k.allen, shepard
flex: (FP’s say fitz over callaway over ajayi, but i’m thinking callaway, wait till we see fitz healthy and doing anything)

2. also, since tannehill is that much lower than wentz, drop him for any of: ware, d.foreman, will try for mayfield anyway on the 4th when off waivers.

Should I keep Fitz in to be eaten alive or use Stafford?
Also at rb I have Carson but with game time decision I could use Eckler or K Johnson?
Ppr league leaning Eckler

Howdy & gooood morning Vietnam!!!

.5 ppr league start Stafford who goes to Dallas to face a sneaky cowboys D. Or start either Flacco @ Pittsburgh, or Keenum home in mile high vs chiefs

Hold or drop Jamaal Williams? I would either be looking to add Robert turbin as a speculative add he comes off suspension next week & Mack/Hines/Wilkins have been underwhelming- do you think turbin gets his chance? Other options to add: Ty Montgomery, Blount, or Ron Jones. Or drop Jamaal Williams to get ahead of the pack to add a defense for week 5? I don’t want to drop my bears D

Week 5 d’s im considering: cardinals D @ SF, or panthers D home vs giants

Also for week 5 waivers would you drop Stafford for Goff? Thanks man!

Ronald Jones active today. I own both Ajayi and Barber. As a bench/cuff RB, would you rather have Clement or Jones?

Stafford or Eli..no penalty for INT and bonuses for Longer TD
Josh Gordon at 1:00 or wait and play Baldwin or Marshall if Baldwin is inactive

@The sportsguy: I’m holding for either Baldwin or Marshall tbh. We have no idea how good Gordon’s hamstring is and I shockingly don’t like the matchup this week.

Having a hard time figuring out who to start at my flex and WR2 positions in my 12 team 1/2PPR league. I keep flip1opping between all four of these guys, but right now, I have

Baldwin at WR2 and Alex Collins at Flex. Would you sub either of them out for Kenny Stills or Watkins?

Do either or both Jeffrey or Baldwin start for you in a 16 team std if they play?

Right now I’ve got Galloday and Stills at wr and Calloway and Gabriel in my 2 flex spots

Also currently the underdog

@Dan: Kittle because Beathard ain’t throwing the ball more than 10 yards down the field and Kittle is the most reliable they have in the receiving group.

I was told to post here by an inebriated MB –

RE: Ronald Jones
My only potential drop would be Derrick Henry or Geronimo Allison? WRs currently are: Woods, Cooks, Diggs, Goodwin, John Brown, and Allison. RBs are: Bernard, Fournette, McCaff, & Henry. I was planning to drop Gio next week for a streaming D since I have CHI

@mets3145: Good to see MB really keep composure out there for the tailgate. Still nowhere close to a Bills tailgate, but whatever.

I’m dropping Henry for him just because Henry has such a low ceiling

I’m screwed at RB this week (Mixon and Freeman already out) and now M Mack and C Clement are also out. Looking at either RoJo against the Bears or one of the Indy back (Hines or Wilkins). Other starting back if T Cohen.

12 team, 0,5 pt PPR

Reid

Reply to  Smallwine

@Smallwine: I feel like it has to be Cohen and RoJo. You’re playing behind the 8-ball regardless so why not shoot for the moon. The indy guys won’t get you what you want and they’re 50-50 splitting so the upside isn’t there

@mets3145: yep, dude didn’t even practice on sat, anytime you see that and it isn’t a guy that USUALLY just gets sat’s off (which is almost nobody) it’s CRIMINAL to call that “questionable” it’s DEF doubtful like 90% of the time. did anybody even see that carson was even questionable (i don’t own him, but i didn’t read it anywhere all of a sudden he’s ruled out completely). that douchebag over at SEA is such a cunt.

Was set to fire up Kerryon Johnson as my FLEX.

But with news that Cobb is out, would you stick Geronimo Allison in there instead?

I’m tempted.

@Scott: I’m keeping Johnson in the flex right now.

It is tempting, but i think the Bills-Packers game is going to show off a little more defense than Lions-Cowboys
