Welcome to week 2 of the 2020 NFL season! Some of the stories that I have heard already from fantasy players have been downright brutal. I have a friend who thought that he had won his league right after the draft after starting with Michael Thomas, Kenny Golladay, and Chris Godwin. And I know he is not the only one. You just never know! The injury bug can kill even the sharpest starts of drafts. I’m looking to turn my own season around after taking Miles Sanders pretty much everywhere that I could. I have a lot of 0-1 starts to redeem. I hate sweating this early. We still have 12 weeks until the fantasy playoffs so there is a lot of time to turn it around. Let’s start with the injury report, follow that up with some DFS plays that I like, and then finish with the rankings that I will be updating all the way until kickoff.

    MB right now I’m rolling out Cook and Drake at RB and Davante and Julio at WR. Having a little trouble deciding my flex. It’s between Amari, Carson, Miles Sanders, and Ridley. It’s full ppr. And no it’s not an 8 team league it’s a long running dynasty. I’m leaning Ridley but an hesitant to start both him and Julio.

      Amari in PPR, nice squad by the way

    1. Struggling with my struggling team, my opponent had Hunt and ObJ so I’m in a big hole

    Need 2 flex (std) from
    Kelley Gibson AP Reagor Lazard, RAnderson or drop one for Perriman

    2. 14 team std: wr2. MVS Reagor or Hardman and Gibson or Kelley at flex

    • MB

      MB says:

      I’d go Lazard and Anderson

      Hardman in 14 tm

      • howie2978 says:

        I’m torn between Moss or Lamb at flex. You seem to like Lamb better by a good margin. I’m still leaning Moss but what would you do?

        Thanks!

    Need to start either Scott Miller or Parris Campbell in ppr

    Thanks

      MB says:

      Tough, lot of upside for both. I lean Parris

  4. Paul Zone says:

    10 team superflex.

    Do we like Corey Davis or Preston Williams?

    ROS…

    • MB

      MB says:

      Corey today, Preston ROS

  5. philossie says:
    (link)

    Godwin and Golladay owner over here.

    Need to fill WR2 and a flex spot in PPR with : P Williams, Lazard, Perriman, Sims Jr. or James White (Pigskinonator likes Sims Jr. or else I probably wouldn’t have included him here).

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Hard to argue with pigskinator. I like Perriman for upside

  6. CloudTown says:

    Mornin’ MB

    Need to pick 2 of 3 to start today. Half PPR. Corey Davis, Scotty Miller, and Parris Campbell. Rankings are generally pretty close on all.

    Thanks!

      Scotty and Parris

  7. dandvetest says:

    need to stash two of three, 14-team half-ppr: Fitzgerald, MVS and tre’quan smith

    pick two?

    thank you!

    • MB

      MB says:

      MVS and Tre’Quan

      • dandvetest says:

        thanks for quick reply! keep fitz over frank gore or chris thompson? or lose fitz?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          None of them excite me. I guess Gore has the most value right now

  8. Drekkan says:

    Thanks to Golladay and Kittle I have a short bench. I currently have an empty kicker slot and need to drop one of the following to fill up for game time:

    Ceedee Lamb
    Emmanuel Sanders
    Chase Edmonds
    Joshua Kelley

    I currently have more depth at RB (starting Nixon and Chubb, flexing in Moss) as my WR is otherwise somewhat thin (McLaurin and Fuller). So I think the right drop is Edmonds.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I agree that the correct drop is Edmonds

  9. howie2978 says:

    I’m torn between Moss or Lamb at flex. You seem to like Lamb better by a good margin. I’m still leaning Moss but what would you do?

    Thanks!

      Lamb. I like the Dallas passing attack against ATL

      • howie2978 says:

        Done. Thanks!

  12. Nick says:
    (link)

    Hey man- still cant decide on WR3 this week between Corey Davis or L Shenault…there is also Scotty out on waivers, 12 team standard. Do you drop either of above for Scotty plug & play this week instead? Keeping in mind I’ll need a filler next week as well if AJ Brown is still hurt…

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I like Scotty the most.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        Who would you part ways with? Bench includes C Davis, Shenault, Crowder, AJ Brown, Ebron, Fournette & Mattison

  13. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Ros – Scotty, Corey, Mike Williams, MVS

    • Zandy says:
      (link)

      0.5 ppr if it makes a big diff

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      ROS is tough but I like Scotty to keep developing as a go-to target for Tommy

  14. CP says:
    (link)

    1/2 ppr who to start

    rb pick 2: connor, singletary, hines, robinson

    wr pick 1: sutton, corey davis

    thanks!

      MB says:

      Singletary, Hines, and Sutton

  15. Jorginho says:

  16. Adam says:

      MB says:

  17. Oscar Burris says:
    (link)

    K. Allen or W. Fuller flex PPR?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Allen, but barely. Fuller if you want to live on the edge

  18. Jingle Dahl the Way says:
    (link)

    12 team, 1/2 ppr

    Just saw that Snell and Conner are expected to split carries this week. Would you start Snell or Peterson?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Snell, has more upside

  19. William Hung says:
    (link)

    I’ve been cycling between Dobbins, Snell, and James White… based on rankings i’m supposed to go Dobbins, but i’m not so sure… I feel like James White’s snap count is more stable of the 3

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Probably true, but Dobbins is dynamic given the opportunity

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        aaaannnndddddd Barkley’s injury did not look good – prayer octagon that it’s not an IR situation

          He done. Just brutal for football in general

  20. Zandy says:
    (link)

    Who are the 5 guys most likely to win you a league? (Guys in the 20-40 range in rankings with enough upside) thinking of blowing up my team and try to swing some trades and figuring out who to target In 0.5 ppr 12 teamer
    Allen
    Taylor Bell Dobbins Fournette Kelley Snell
    MThomas Goodwin KAllen Davis Scotty
    Hurst
    2 RB / 2 WR / 1 flex

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Gonna have to give me more context, like 20-40 positionally?

      I’d look to move Keenan Allen but I like Slayton, Diontae Johnson, Deebo Samuel

      • Zandy says:
        (link)

        Yea trying to think of who to target as emerging guys that are getable like guys who could end up top 10 positionally (like obviously Calvin Ridley but no one is trading him). These guys you listed are all gettable. Thanks!
