    I agree wholeheartedly,

    Anyways; Start Melvin Gordon or Christine Michael this week?
    Gordon has been killing it and Allen, Gates, and Woodhead are all out. Maybe even more touches for him.
    but at some point Seattle's Offense is going to go off just a matter of when imo.

    I have Olsen and Ebron. Buddy wants Ebron, wanted to give me Tyler Kroft and Asiata as a handcuff to my Jerick McKinnon. That trade is laughable, but he needs help at TE. All he has is Kroft and injured Gates.

    I want to counter with Ebron/McKinnon for Gore/Kroft.

    My RBs are; Charles, CJ Anderson, Duke Johnson, Artis-Payne. It's a 14 league 4 player keeper so don't laugh at my depth :).

    I could also use WRs and would be willing to trade Olsen for Mike Evans/TY Hilton straight up and roll with Ebron.

    Thoughts?

    olsen is getting older...if you can get Evans IMO go for it. I'm more apprehensive about Hilton. wouldn't bother with Gore unless it was for Ebron straight up but even then I'd be somewhat apprehensive. At his age the ability can go at any time with that position. I'd need to see the rest of his roster or else I simply may suggest acquiring draft picks

    I'm tempted to drop Derrick Henry here. DeMarco Murray has become the clear-cut #1 back on that Titans team, so can I really sit there waiting forever for him to get hurt? Not to mention that offense is stagnant outside of Murray's play.

    My stable of backs as of the moment ......

    M. Forte
    T. West
    T. Yeldon
    D. Sproles
    D. Henry

    I'm liking what I see out of Brian Quick right now and he has a very favorable schedule. Originally my plan was to go double TE's with one of them at the flex since I have D.Walker, J.Graham, and T.Eifert ....... but now Eifert has a back issue delaying him from returning to the field.

    Matt Ryan @ Den or Philip Rivers @ Oak. Got a nice start this week with Johnson and Fitz on Thursday. Need to finish him off.

    tough call. I have both of them in one league and went with Rivers... so Ryan will probably have the better day lol.

    Rivers. Ryan IMO will fall back to earth this week. Denver is historically a good home team and a great defense. Also I believe Tevin Coleman has the sickle cell trait which is affected by high altitude so don't be surprised if he's limited

    I have seven players on a bye this week, including six who are normally starters. So, I've ended up starting six Dolphins - Tannehill, Ajayi, Landry, Parker, Alonso and Wake. Counting on Miami big.

    I need a TE this week.. Really nothing on waivers. I'm considering rolling the dice with Marqueis Gray with all the hype on this board about him but he hasn't done anything yet on the field in the passing game really. My other options would be Ertz, Barnidge, or Kendricks. Non-Ppr.

    so who do you start this week ?

    Carson Palmer @ Vikings
    Ryan Tannehill @ Rams

    i also could dump Tannehill and pick up Marcus Mariota @ Colts

    Marietta vs colts is the direction I think I'd go. I'm not sold that the cards are a good team or a bad one, same as Minnesota but the Vikings have a defense. Tannehill could go crazy or go broke. Marietta seems like the safest play vs a bad d in what could be a shootout...

    My bad I started a thread and didn't see this thread.

    Trade jay ajayi and Jordan reed for Gronk? Already have David Johnson, leveon bell, and demarco Murray filling my RB and flex spots.

    I wouldn't make that trade. Not even close. Ajayi is spitting out high first round value the last month and reed is a top 3 TE option. While Gronk is the best TE it's an overpay that doesn't really improve your injury risk over Reed and you're trading for a guy with a busted lung. That doesn't heel in a week even if he only misses a game. Too much risk for not enough reward.

    Where were you 5 days ago!?

    Went thru with the trade for Gronk. I have a hard time starting ajayi over Demarco, Leveon Bell, or David Johnson so I pulled the trigger. I had the reed/ajayi combo in 2 leagues and didn't want to be burned in both of they both bust in the playoffs.

    And reed scrores 22 tonight. It's bittersweet.

    Also, what do I do about someone who hasn't paid dues still? He's currently in the 2nd seed and I've reminded this guy multiple times he is the last one to not pay. In addition to not paying, he's the most vocal *****er and complainer and waiver hog. The problem is, we work in the same office.

    Another thing to consider was the injury history on murray and bell.

    As for where i was 5 days ago...working. too much of that this week :(

    Set a deadline. if he hasnt paid in, the prize pool gets reduced but hes ineligible to win. you cant officially pull him from the playoffa on most formats but if he wins, rhe grand prize goes to the runner up and the 2nd place prize goes to the winner of the 3rd place game

    Good points boik and I thought of the injury risk, but I have derrick Henry and deangelo Williams whom I can start with confidence. Now if David Johnson goes down...

    Playoffs are week 14-15. I just need these guys healthy for a few more weeks dammit.

    This is the most stacked team I've ever had in a money league ever, I think I'm good.

    Tough decisions this week. PPR League. Pick 2 RB's, 3 WR's, 1 Flex.

    Jay Ajayi
    Jordan Howard
    Thomas Rawls
    Spencer Ware

    Sammy Watkins
    Jarvis Landry
    Michael Thomas
    DeAndre Hopkins
    Alshon Jeffrey
    Allen Robinson

    Howard is a must start IMO the way he's been playing.
    Ajayi vs the jets over Ware because ware is stressing 3.2 Ypc over his last 4 and he's had some TD vultured by Charcandrick West the last few weeks. Hope you went these two over a slumping Gurley.

    Watkins cause...Cleveland.
    Landry cause...Jets
    I can make a case for or against any of the last 4 but I'd go Hopkins and hope for the best.

    Started Rawls..sigh. Ajayi and Howard. Got Watkins, Landry and Jeffrey in right now. Debating on Jeffrey because of the cold. The guy I'm playing is loaded with Falcons and other great matchups. It'll take a miracle to win.

    I am in a PPR league and I'm looking for some advice on who to start week 1 (outside of RB1 and RB2). 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, one flex W/R and 1 TE. Here is my lineup:

    QB Wilson
    QB Mariota
    RB Bell
    RB Ajayi
    RB Montgomery
    RB Hunt
    WR Baldwin
    WR Jeffery
    WR Diggs
    WR Parker
    TE Eifert
    TE Walker

    I lean Walker due to the Raiders D. After Baldwin, not sure which WR to start. Was thinking Kareem Hunt or Ty Montgomery as my flex, but the Packers are playing the Seahawks. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    That's cause you like Hunt. It's not a bad bet considering Andy Reid's history with offensive backfield players. But it's his first pro start (presumably) and we still don't know how the snaps will be distributed there. More risky play in that respect even though Montgomery has a game with Seattle. Plus we know two things about Montgomery...one he had had a YPC over 5 in his starts last year. And he can catch the ball.

    I drafted this past weekend. PPR 10-Tm. I had 1st Ovr Pick. What do you guys think I should do Week 1 at RB, WR, TE? League has a flex position W/R/T.

    QB - Brady
    RB - D. Johnson
    RB - Blount
    RB - J. Rodgers
    RB - T. West
    WR - M. Thomas (N.O.)
    WR - D. Thomas (Den)
    WR - Pryor
    WR - Diggs
    WR - Hogan
    TE - Eifert
    TE - Rudolph

    Seattle defense, plus Jamaal Williams probably stands a better chance of eating into carries than Charcandrick West. Only reason West should be in the game is to provide Hunt a breather, and Andy Reid has already commented about how outstanding Hunt's endurance is.

    I disagree as Williams hasnt proven a real threat to carries, just slightly better in pass pro. Commenting on endurance is different then snap distribution and gstting used to game speed. Im not saying Hunt wont be factor, just that it may not happen this week. Imo, Ty is the safer play and higher upside.

    I would go with either West or Rodgers over Blount. IMO Blount won't be anything close to what he was in NE, I would stay away from him. WR, I would go with the Thomas Brothers.

    RB - I definitely think Quizz Rodgers is your play at RB at least the first 2 weeks against us and then the bears. Potentially week 3 starter as well depends if you like him more vs the Vikings D or Blount vs the Giants D.

    WR - Thomas/Thomas, Pryor as Flex

    TE - Rudolph every day of the week imo.

    I have my draft tonight, obviously as a Dolphins fan I want Ajayi and Parker but I don't know if I can bring myself to draft both of them. I have the 12th pick so my RB options will be limited there, probably between Ajayi, Howard, and Gordon.
