Thank you all for the well wishes for my family yesterday. Even though we may never have a beer together, we work things out during the football season for your fantasy teams on a daily basis so we do share some sort of bond. Anyways, life is pretty much back to normal.

We had a lot of big performances last week and some of those I was higher than the consensus. D.J. Chark, Michael Gallup, Will Fuller were a few of those names that I was higher on. Unfortunately, there are always the misses. Austin Ekeler didn’t get in the endzone. I was too high of Jacoby Brissett, too low on Russell Wilson. And of course, I was too high on Baker Mayfield. Rudy and myself finished back to back at 87th and 88th last week. We must begin to look forward and grab a top 10 finish.

    Thanks for the ranks MB, last week’s boozy trade of OBJ for Mack looks good so far. Mack is a solid rb and OBJ just seems lost in Cleveland. I did like the gimmicky touches but don’t feel so bad with Marlon Mack after Sunday.

      Yep, not bad so far!

    ROS TE H. Henry or Herndon? Thanks, MB!

      No problem

      Henry

  3. eballs says:

    Would you drop Hockensen or McDonald for Herndon? (0.5 ppr)

    • MB

      MB says:

      Yeah probably Vance

  4. Johnny Be Good says:

    Hey MB, curious your reasoning/thoughts for ranking Mecole Hardman so high this week (+15 from ECR)? I’m debating Hardman or Diontae Johnson in Flex this week…thanks!

      It’ll change if Tyreek Hill plays, just kindve playing the middle with the two. I’m sure they’ll be careful with Hill so I’m not totally convinced he plays this week

    Glad to hear life is returning to normal and that your son is okay!

    I’d love your thoughts on a big 3-for-3 trade in a 14-team 0.5 ppr league:

    Receive: OBJ, Sony, Minshew
    Give: Lockett, Josh Gordon, Olsen

    Roster:
    QB: Mayfield (ugh…getting Minchew would be a surprisingly important part of this trade for me)
    RB: David Johnson, Kerryon, Barber, Edmonds, Mattison
    WR: Godwin, Lockette, Gordon, Couttee, Demarcus Robinson
    TE: Olsen, Henry

    • MB

      MB says:

      Thank you!

      Yes, I’d pull the trigger on that one for sure. OBJ is obviously the wild card but a lot of upside

    Hey MB

    Couple questions for you.

    Full ppr league.

    1.) Who is the start out of Alshon, Curtis Samuel, & Golden Tate (Feels like an easy sit vs NE but lots of guys hurt there)?

    2.) Start Delanie Walker or drop him for Greg Olsen? (Can’t roster both)

    Thanks

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I think it’s Samuel against a less than stellar Tampa secondary, yes start walker

  7. Toby says:

    Is Gurley, Cooks and Engram too much to give up for Kamara in a standard scoring 12 team league?

    • CMUTIMMAH says:
      (link)

      That is a TON to give up… you better have great replacement options for all three.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Yes that’s too much

      • Toby says:
        (link)

        Thanks for talking me off the ledge. I countered with Gurley and Engram and hope that still isn’t too much. TE is so damn thin this year…

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          That’s more like it, yeah TE is brutal

  8. toolshed says:

    Ugh, Herndon injures his hammy. I added him 2 weeks ago. This is now the 3rd tight end I lost. I even tried eiffert last week vs az. I thought I get some production from him vs az who had not stopped a single te all year. Who do I add out of graham, whitten, rudolph, goeddert, knox, burton, doyle, akins? .5 ppr. It would be nice to get 10 points from this position for once. 30 yds, a td and couple receptions is not asking for much.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I guess it’s Graham right now

  9. Cram It says:
    (link)

    Is the pecking order in KC right now Hardman, Robinson, Pringle? Like when Tyreek and Watkins return, Hardman should be the #3? It seems pretty unclear to me who gets the looks week to week with those 2 out.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’d say Robinson is probably at the top when Hill plays. Hardman runs a lot of Hill’s motion and routes. Not sure of his role when he returns

    MB! 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? Should I move Fournette from my Flex and have him take Cook’s spot? Cook plays a tough PHI defense. Bench Cook and have Fournette take his place and have MacLaurin as my flex? 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 ?

    TE-Andrews

    K- Tucker

    D- Cowboys OR New England?

    Thanks

    William Trill Cauley-Stein

      MB says:

      Goff, Boyd, Terry, Fournette, New England

      • William Trill Cauley-Stein says:
        (link)

        I appreciate it! Who else should I go with a reciever besides Terry? Boyd or Ridley as my WR2?

        • MB

          MB says:
          (link)

          Nah, I’d go with Terry

  11. Billy says:

    How is OBJ constantly ranked in the top 10 throughout the industry ? I dont understand this we have seen 5 weeks of this Cleveland project and it is ugly. I am honestly debating Drake or Auden Tate in the flex over him is that crazy ?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I’m playing Will Fuller over him in a league at the moment. I think Tate or Drake is a stretch I’ll honestly take a closer look before it’s final on Sunday, for OBJ and for Mike Evans. Beckham’s involvement was encouraging at least

  12. toolshed says:
    (link)

    Would you cut Mayfield or hold? I dont need a backup until week 10 but he plays buf or if my QB gets hurt. Best available are newton (if he plays week 10) he host gb. Brissett vs mia, cousins at dal, allen at cle? What do I do? I know week 10 is a month away but I need to start thinking about it. Thanks

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      You can drop him for Week 10 Brissett before someone else sees it

  13. William Hung says:

    Should I drop Minny D for Green Bay?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      No, I wouldn’t. Minny is a non-streamer D

  14. Jose Football Americano says:

    I think Tampa would rather lose than involve Howard in the passing game because underusing talent is what garbage franchises do. Thinking about offering another team a deal for Kittle or Dissly (he has, and starts, both). What would you offer as an opening offer? Thanks!

    WR: Chark, Hopkins, J-Brown Robinson, Smith-Schuster

    HIS TEAM

      I’d offer JuJu for Kittle

    12 team standard keep 3

    The team I’m trading with would likely finish top 3 so it would be back of any of the rounds.

    Trade my zeke for Chubb and 2nd rounder(5th)

    Trade my zeke for josh Jacobs a 1st(4th) and 5th(8)

    • MB

      MB says:

      Zeke for Jacobs and picks

    12 team ppr

    My kerryon/Coleman for Barkley/mccoy

    • big league choo says:
      (link)

      Nvm he accepted another deal…thought with both of them past byes I had a shot. Kerryon probably one of the Best Buy lows right now IMO.

        Dang. Barkley would’ve been nice

    Hey dude, in a PPR, am I nuts for thinking Rhett Ellison over Jason Witten? Worried about the Cowboy/Jets game getting out of hand and Witten riding the pine.

    Also, smashing work on projections, thanks!!!

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I project that this game will actually be closer than people think, I’d still roll with Witten

  19. MagaMan says:

    Yo da man MB!

    Full point per, Chark vs Saints or Golladay @ Pack?

    For a bench stash would you rather have Darell Williams or Henderson PPR ?

      Henderson

    I’m in a 12 team dynasty league. We keep 4 players. Would you trade next year’s 5th round pick for Amari Cooper? The last place owner is selling and is planning for next year. I was thinking definitely yes – thoughts? Cooper’s injuries make this trade too risky? I have :
    Qb ryan
    Rb Kimara
    Rb Bell
    wr – Julio
    Wr- woods
    Te kittle
    Bench – Sammy Watkins, DJ moore, tevin Coleman, mccoy, hooper

    Thanks !
