Week 7 means allergy season for me. If I were speaking these words, I would have to take a deep breath in-between sentences. I’m so stuffed up, fall is really awful to me. Speaking of stuffed, what the hell was up with Derrick Henry last week? I was pretty high on Henry and he couldn’t find any room. It was the perfect matchup for him but Tennessee truly stinks. 

A big part of the rankings process is trying to find the best individual matchups and baking that into a player’s placement for the week. Last week I had Kittle ranked as the #1 tight end because he was playing against the Rams, who had a terrible secondary prior to trading for Jalen Ramsey. While Kittle didn’t finish as the #1 tight end, he did finish higher than the other couple of heavyweights that are usually in the top 3 rankings each week. I think that sometimes I overreact to good matchups, like Henry’s last week. I mean you were probably starting Henry either way, but the goal is to be as close to accurate as possible. Anyways, I always have something to work on with these rankings. I’m always trying to improve to give you the best content possible. Thank you once again for reading and here are my rankings for week 7!

    I own fairbaim. He has scored double digit points once and has missed 4 xp already. Would you hold or cut him for prater, Maher, nugent, gay (tb). Tb is off this week but he and prater have the most pts ytd in my league. Prater had his bye already. 3 pts fg under 40, 40-49 4pts, 50 5 pts. Thx

        In 12 team redraft super flex .5ppr which RB would you drop? I own Connor, k Johnson, Ingram, ronald Jones, Pollard, Mattinson, c Edmonds, Singleterry, and Malcom Brown.

      Admittedly, I don’t pay attention to kickers but Prater and Gay both look good

  2. toolshed says:

    Or vinatieri who also had his bye week already.

    • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
      (link)

      go zane G if possible, his offense stalls a lot in the red zone but IS good enough to move the ball pretty often. great @ NYG matchup. or nugent if the league faded that the NE kicker is now him (even though he isn’t good)

    How would you rank the following WRs ROS: Sterling Sheppard, Westbrook, Preston Wilson…Antonio Brown. Half PPR redraft. Haven’t been able to cut bait on that ahole. Can roster two of the four. Sheppard and Westbrook right?

    • MB

      MB says:

      Yeah, I’d want to roster Shepard and Westbrook, Brown is irrelevant

    Trying to acquire Gurley. I have Engram to trade. What else do I need to make a decent offer.

    My WRs are Allen, OBJ, Lockett, T. Williams. D. J. Moore.
    RBs: Conner, j. White, Cohen, Penny, Edmonds
    TE: Engram, H. Henry
    QBs Watson and J. Allen.
    Is Engram and J. Allen enough?
    Thanks

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      Doubtful, but maybe depending on the QB the trade partner has.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Engram and Allen might get it done, but I’d start with Allen straight up. I don’t recommend buying Gurley though but I understand the appeal

      • Steve says:

        Gurley or M. Gordon ROS?
        Both rb2s about 16-18?

    2-4…half ppr, 5 teams tied for last playoff spot at 2-4. Just not putting up points this year. any of these trade scenarios make sense?

    1-ridley (wr4) for hooper? I have andrews on bye next week.
    2- Mel gordon for jacobs and henry
    3- zeke for kelce and mack

    Thanks for your feedback.

      Zeke for Kelce and Mack makes the most sense to me without seeing the rest of your roster

    Hello,

    I picked up Everret for TE last week and he shit the bed but he has the falcons this week and the Rams should be energized after pickiing up Ramsey. Stick with him one more week? Eiferet is available but he never seems to work out. I was also looking at Dawson Knox Buffalo up against Miama. I think i’m going to stick w/ Everret but maybe Know. What do you think?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I agree, stick with Everett one more week, it’s not like anyone did anything for the Rams so let’s see how it looks when they have room to throw

    Hi there,

    I’m in a league with an OP spot and I need to get a 2nd QB – right now I have Lamar and that’s pretty much it. I’ve been offered Aaron Rodgers or Kyler for my David Johnson and I think I’ll take one of them since I still have Conner, Ingram and Edmonds on my team.

    Would you prefer Kyler or Rodgers ROS?

    Thanks!

    • MB

      I’d grab Kyler. He’s really starting to figure it out

    This is my W7 lineup in a 10-team .5 PPR league: I’m debating Jamison Crowder v. Robby Anderson

    QB- Watson
    WR- Fitz, Gallup
    RB- Coleman, Singletary
    TE- Ertz
    FLEX- Boyd
    Bench:
    WR: Fuller, Evans, Crowder
    RB- Peterson, McCaffrey
    TE- Henry

    After last week’s disasters from Boyd and Fuller, I’m of the mindset to not have too many all or nothing type players and balance it out with a guys like Crowder and Fitz who will get at least or close to 10 points.

    That’s why I’m asking your opinion if you think my team is better served with a guy like Crowder or a guy like Robby Anderson.

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      Crowder, especially in 0.5 PPR and up. I think that’s a good mindset to have too.

  14. Mike says:
    (link)

    Hey man — Getting Davante for Mack. I have a lot of RB depth and need WR strength. Turf toe is what im worried about.

    What do you think?

      It’s a nice stab but turf toe can be a grueling recovery

    I want OUT of the Aaron Jones situation! Thoughts on Melvin Gordon or Ingram for Jones? PPR redraft. Who else would you take straight up for Aaron Jones MB?

    • Cram It says:

      I’d take Ingram

    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?

    QB- Goff OR L. Jackson?

    RB- D. Cook

    RB2- Fournette

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

    WR2- C. Ridley? OR Scary Terry?

    Flex- L. Fournette? Scary Terry? Jamaal Williams? C. Ridley? T. Boyd ? M. Andrews? L. Murray?

    TE-Andrews OR Waller?

    K- Tucker

    D- Cowboys OR New England?

    Morning MB! .5 ppr

    I’m thinking I need to/ should do a 2 for 1 trade where I’m dealing 2 players to help improve my team.
    Would you advise a 2 for 1 t trim the fat ? & do you like my ideas?

    First off my team:

    My RBs David Johnson, Cook, David Montgomery , Tevin Coleman, Mattison, Edmonds, Darrell Henderson

    My WRs OBj, thielen, Josh Gordon, aj green, dionte Johnson, MVS, Watkins, jaron brown

    My TE Waller

    I feel I need to improve at WR, thoughts on these 1 for 1 ideas then I have 2 for 1’s: either way I think I could use WR depth. I can’t trust josh Gordon, MVS, Watkins

    1.) deal my David Montgomery to get Michael Gallup?

    2.) deal my David Montgomery to get Sanu ?

    3.) deal my David Montgomery to get Larry Fitzgerald?

    4.) deal my David Montgomery to get Lockett?

    4.) deal my Tevin Coleman to get Allen Robinson?

    5.) deal my Tevin Coleman to get Alshon?

    Now for the 2 for 1’s:

    6.) deal my Tevin Coleman + OBJ to get Chris Godwin? Fair deal? Too much?

    7.) deal my Tevin Coleman + OBJ to get DeAndre Hopkins? Not enough?

    8.) deal my Tevin Coleman + OBj to get Tyreek hill? Hill owner needs depth as he’s 1-5. His RBs are Sony & mixon- that’s it!

    9.) deal my David Montgomery + MVS to get Ridley ?

    Thanks man!

    Dynasty league, std scoring, my team sucks and I’m in a rebuilding year. Waivers reset weekly, so I get a top-2 pick pretty much every week. This week’s skill position players aren’t that exciting from a long-term perspective–J. Williams, L. Murray and Crowder are the best of the bunch. Would you grab one of them or the 49ers DST, which may not do much for my record but seems like maybe the best trade bait?

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      49er D/ST for trade bait is the best call

    I picked up hunter henry but I had OJ howard starting last week :(. I’m starting Henry moving forward but i’m wondering if I should hold onto Howard or pick up Hockenson instead. I’m sad that I spent a 5th rd pick on Howard but if I have to cut ties I will. I doubt anybody would be interested in howard…What would you do?

    Thanks!

    Would you deal the following in a .5 PPR and I’m 1-5

    I trade
    Davante Adam’s
    Hunter Henry
    Josh Jacob’s

    For

    Saquon Barkley
    Jared cook
    Robby Anderson’s

    My current wr are julio, hilton, Adam’s, fuller, Gallup
    And RBs are Jacob’s, henry, damien William’s, hyde

      Yes I would do that, you’re getting Saquon Barkley, easy yes

  24. And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
    (link)

    you put yourself at serious risk intentionally starting henry since he wasn’t for sure ruled to even play in the sunday night game till after the mid day sunday games (unless you could’ve just dropped somebody for another late week game TE, then of course it might be worth the gamble).
    we NOW can see that the friday-sat night “news” updates from the LAC coach saying “we’re not even sure he can play the full snaps IF he plays” was utter b.s. from him (and LAC have given us a lot of info over the years to indicate we just shouldn’t trust them at all of course) but still, risky

    • MB

      MB says:
      (link)

      I highly doubt he had a high starting percentage

    12 team PPR super flex. keep 4 per year no cost on the keepers
    QB: wentz, trubisky, rudolph (had exited the draft with mariota here, dropped him when ben went out for rudolph)
    RB (2): AAron, mack, wilkins, d-will part 2 (the lesser KC d-will), lindsay
    WR (3): adams, dede, fuller, j.brown, a.wilson, c.davis, snead (obtained last week when m.brown was ruled out also since i needed somebody due to bye weeks)
    TE (1): kelce, hockenson
    2 regular flexes
    1 super flex
    IR (3): burkhead (even if he’s ruled out it won’t be likely till very late in week, he’s got a monday game, can’t make moves while he’s only DTD in here), b.love (might come back and depending on guice might even be a starter)

    so to make any moves i have to drop 2 people, 1 to bring up burkhead first.

    drop anybody for d.henderson, stills, harry (can stash), erickson, d-will (BUF), d.smith (DAL), renfrow (t-will sounds out again), fitzmagic, knox, everett (just dropped again)?
