The rankings contest results are a little slow this week. The participants have been spoiled this season getting them on Tuesday mornings this season. So I have nothing to report on that front. I felt good about how my projections turned out last week. I didn’t have any huge misses that I’m kicking myself over. 

We’re always looking to bring different ways to bring you the best content that we can and I think that we came up with something that will be exciting as we kick off October. Our new writer Pat is a hard worker if you haven’t noticed from his weekly data reports. So I’m going to have him write up flex rankings for your consumption each week. This will be similar to what Donkey Teeth writes over on the baseball side. DT thought this format would translate well to football as well. A beautiful alley-oop by the non-human Razzballer. But for now, here are my rankings for week 5!

    I’m fortunately pretty loaded at RB (Melvin Gordon, Ekeler, Le’veon, Gurley, Gallman)….been offered Zeke for Gurley and Ekeler. I should probably take that right? Give up some depth, get back the best player?

    Thanks MB

    • MB

      MB says:

      Yep, absolutely. Grab Zeke while you can

    good morning MB,
    we’ve had a tough go of it with QB so far this year & this week is no different. according to your rankings, Dalton is ahead of K.Allen, Minshew, J.Allen, D.Jones & Cousins. what a horrible list of options.

    Dalton doesn’t normally perform well on MNF, however he seems to be in a position to right the ship this week. It’s not exciting & could be a disaster, but he’s still the best option of the bunch?

    thanks!

      MB says:

      He definitely has the highest upside. I think he is the play

  3. Alex says:

    Is J still doing rankings? Didn’t see his weekly rankings post last week

      Believe so, they came out saturday

  4. prey879 says:

    Would you trade Terry Mclaurin for James White in PPR?

    Current RBs: Kerryon, Devonta Freeman, Jordan Howard, Tevin Coleman, Rex Burkhead

    Current WRs: Julio, Josh Gordon, Terry Mclaurin, Curtis Samuel, Robby Anderson

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      No, I’d keep McLaurin

  5. Billy says:
    (link)

    Should I be holding on to Hunter Henry or can I safely drop him for upside type ?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Depends what’s on the wire, but yeah I don’t have an issue with it

  6. Chad Bowling says:
    (link)

    .5 ppr should I trade

    DIGGS, GALLMAN and EBRON

    for

    INGRAM and ENGRAM?

    Currently starting Melvin gordon and hyde at rb and Diggs is my #3 wr behind Adam’s and OBJ.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yes, I’d do that and do it quick

  7. big league choo says:
    (link)

    12 team ppr no TE spot 2 Flex

    Trade both my d williams/Montgomery for devonta/engram/Royce freeman

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Only if you need a TE

      • big league choo says:
        (link)

        Yeah I did away with TE for our league

        Have one more offer my Sutton for his fuller V/devin singletary

        Sutton is my wr3 with AJ Green out a couple more weeks. Have Hopkins/Beckham/Sutton/hardman as of now for 3 wrs spots

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          I like Fuller’s upcoming schedule, I’d take that

  8. Keeks says:
    (link)

    How low are you on Juju ROS?

    Was thinking about offering 2 of Alshon, John Brown, & Golden Tate for him, thoughts?

    Appreciate it

    • Keeks says:
      (link)

      The Juju owner just offered me

      Juju and Miles Sanders for Marlon Mack and Alshon Jeffrey, would you do that?

      My Rbs- Leveon, Mixon, Mack, Ronald Jones, (dropped Gio temporarily so I could start Eifert vs Ariz over Delanie walker Vs Buf)

      My WRs – Robert Woods, Alshon, John Brown, Golden Tate, Curtis Samuel, Diontae Johnson.

      Been having a lot of trouble at WR specifically. Picking which WR to go with Robert Woods each week has been hard and only getting tougher with Tate back.

      • MB

        MB says:
        (link)

        Yeah, I’d do that. I think it’s a good idea to get rid of JuJu and I think that’s good return

        • Keeks says:
          (link)

          I would be the one getting Juju. Getting him and Miles Sander and giving Mack and Alshon. Sounds like you would advise against trading for Juju right now?

          • MB

            MB says:
            (link)

            Correct. Read it wrong, my bad

  9. Chad Bowling says:
    (link)

    Is Royce Freeman a must-add with my top waiver priority? I would drop Ross and have a lot of RBs, but figured could deal one during byes for a WR.

    RBs – McCaffrey, A. Jones, Carson, Sanders, Montgomery, Singletary, Coleman
    WRs – Hopkins, Sutton, Chark, Pettis, Ross

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I mean I like him more than Ross ROS but I’d use top priority elsewhere or save it for later

  10. chris says:
    (link)

    Hi MB,

    would you trade:

    Give: WR Julio Jones
    Get: WR Josh Gordon & RB Josh Jacobs

    My team is:

    QB: Wentz
    WR: Jones, OBJ, Desean Jackson, Golden Tate, Corey Davis
    RB: Sony Michell, Ronald Jones, Duke Johnson, Latavius Murray, Ito Smith
    TE: Ertz
    Flex: Wr/RB
    K: Lutz
    DEF: Bill

    12 team league

    thanks!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yeah, looks like you could use the RB help, I’m fine with this

      • chris says:
        (link)

        do you like more Jacobs or Mack in this trade scenario? thanks

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Leaning Jacobs

  11. eballs says:
    (link)

    I currently own Hockensen and McDonald. Would you hold Vance to see if he plays this week, or drop one of them for the following? (0.5 ppr)

    Eifert
    Burton
    Fant

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d hold

  12. Water boy says:
    (link)

    Howdy MB! .5 ppr league! Crazy we are already at week 5

    I’m currently 3-1 & that is 2nd place in my 10 team league

    Would you do any of these deals or stand pat

    1.) deal my OBJ for nick chubb?

    2.) deal my OBJ + DJ to get kamara? Am I giving too much here?

    3.) deal my Watkins to get Marvin Jones ?

    4.) deal my Watkins to get Calvin Ridley?

    5.) deal my Watkins to the guy who has 3 TEs he has engram, Hooper & dissly. I was thinking hooper or dissly, then flip one of those TEs to a TE desperate team for his Marvin Jones?

    6.) deal Watkins + Ben Watson to get his Damien Williams? It’s the same owner as above who has Marvin Jones

    7.) deal my Watkins for Sterling Shepard?

    8.) deal my OBJ + Watkins to get Keenan Allen + Damien Williams?

    My RBs are DJ, cook, David Montgomery, Tevin Coleman, Chris Thompson, Jonathan Wilkins , Darrel Williams , mattison

    My WRS are obj, thielen, Josh Gordon, aj green, mvs, Watkins, dionte Johnson,

    My TE starter is Waller & I got Watson for Waller’s bye next week but if I deal watson I’ll add Herndon for week 6

    ** FYI was this bad? Thought I offered a fair trade my thielen for his RB3 Josh Jacobs . He countered with my Obj for his manny sanders + josh Jacobs . Should I have taken it or hell no?

    Lastly drop Wilkins for one of these: Mostert, Jeff Wilson , ito Smith , dexter Williams, ballage or ajayi? Not the best list lol

    Thanks for your your insights I like your witty headlines

      Hey Water Boy!

      1) Yes
      2) no
      3) No
      4) yes
      5) no, that’s the same thing as trading Watkins for Jones lol
      6) No
      7) yes
      8) no

      I’d say hell no to that last trade.
      I’d drop him and stash Ito

      Thanks, I’m glad someone appreciates them.

  13. Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:

    .2 PPR (so pretty much standard or at least not even .5 PPR). can only have 6 WR at any time. dk metcalf or aj brown, i have metcalf and c.davis as my worst WR’s.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Metcalf

      • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
        (link)

        scratch that one. have these 6 WR: metcalf, c.davis, JJSS, julio, j.brown, sutton drop any/which for any of: r.anderson, p.williams (just dropped these 2), tate, pettis?

        • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
          (link)

          the first of those just dropped, not by me.

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Tate

          • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
            (link)

            guessing metcalf is the drop for tate

            • MB

              MB says:
              (link)

              Yeah, I guess. I’m really not a Corey Davis believer

              • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
                (link)

                crap, that’s a.tate, same answer still. clearly i’d have grabbed g.tate (and he was drafted anyway) if that’s the tate i mean. forgot about there being 2 of these now.

                • MB

                  MB says:
                  (link)

                  Haha me too, I like Auden Tate a lot this week.

  14. Mike says:
    (link)

    Diontae or Metcalf ROS, PPR redraft

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Diontae right now, but it’s close

  15. Ivanmakebasket says:
    (link)

    Kamara 10th for rbs? Lol

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Check 0.5 PPR. Standard is an algorithm

  16. Jack says:
    (link)

    Would you be looking to trade OBJ or do you still believe he will come around ? If you were to trade him which RB’s do you feel would be good return ?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’m actually convinced he’ll turn it around

  17. Neogonzo Mourning says:
    (link)

    14-team, 0.5 PPR : Pick 2 of 3 RBs for me :
    Damien Williams vs IND
    Wayne Gallman vs MIN
    Jordan Howard vs NYJ

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Gallman and Howard. No idea how much work Williams gets

  18. eballs says:
    (link)

    In a very rough spot this week. I need to start two of these guys (0.5 ppr)

    Agholor
    Dorsett
    Westbrook
    Auden Tate
    Diontae Johnson

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Dorsett and Tate

  19. Billy says:
    (link)

    Someone dropped Kenyan Drake in my PPR league is it worth me burning my #1 waiver claim on him ? Our wire is super thin and I’m sort of weak at RB .

    Thanks

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      If it’s thin go for it

  20. William Trill Cauley-Stein says:

    MB!

    How are you? I hope you are doing well. Could you please help me out this week? I am in a ten team .5 PPR league. We do have big play bonuses in my league. Can you help me figure out who to start? I’m really really torn between what to do at Flex along with what to do with my WRs and TE. I would really appreciate it.

    QB- Goff OR L. Jackson?

    RB- D. Cook

    RB2- N.Chubb

    WR1- T. Boyd? OR C. Scary Terry?

    WR2- C. Ridley? OR Scary Terry?

    Flex- L. Fournette? Scary Terry? M. Sanders? C. Ridley? T. Boyd ? M. Andrews?

    TE-Andrews OR Waller?

    K- K. Fairbarian

    D- Cowboys OR New England?

    Thanks

    William Trill Cauley-Stein

  21. Alex says:
    (link)

    Winston or Murray ros

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Winston

  22. Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
    (link)

    same .2 PPR league as above, same rule for RB’s (max 6), have all 3 SF guys (not j.wilson) and singletary/michel/d.will2 (the 3rd stringer),
    drop mostert (gotta think d.will part 2 has more value in case of mccoy or d-will1 injuries) for which of: mattison, wilkins, armstead, the other d-will (GB)?

    • Yr Never Too Old For Balloons says:
      (link)

      start 2 RB, 2 WR, 3 flexes. this is the entire lineup:
      RB: 3 SF non wilson guys, dwill2, michel, singletary
      WR: metcalf (could grab tate, i benched metcalf), sutton, c.davis, JJSS, julio, j.brown
      TE (1): ertz, hooper
      QB (1, but large benches and maxes at RB/WR you have bench guys elsewhere if you want them): wentz/k.murray/dalton

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d grab Wilkins,he’ll fit right in if Mack continues to get banged up

  23. Flexin says:
    (link)

    Need some advice… Should I start Damien Williams or Marquez Valdes Scantling at Flex this week, in a Yahoo 0.5PPR league?

    Thanks for all the rankings and advice! Y’all rock!
