Couple lineup questions:

Matt Ryan vs DAL
or
Roethlisberger @IND

I have Antonio Brown too, so leaning toward starting Ben and rolling the dice on a resurgent Ben.

at flex:
Doug Martin vs NYJ
Kenyon Drake @CAR

standard league.

Leaning Drake, seems like Martin has been benched for no real reason.

I'd lean towards Ryan slightly

home game and should be more competitive than the Pit-Ind game. Both good options this week though, so don't think it will matter too much which you choose.

Drake over Martin by a mile.
This is a make or break game for ATL

They know that they will have to put up a lot of points in the dome to win and that means throwing the ball all over. I expect 300+ yards 3 TDs and 1 int for Ryan. Dallas is giving up the 12 most fantasy points to Qbs (according to Yahoo).

Ben is not good on the road. He does have a plus match up though vs Indy. I can see the Bell show for the Pitt offense. Especially if they get up early. I think 250 yards 2 TD's and 1 ints for Ben. Indy is giving up the 11 most points to Qbs.

Go with Ryan.

Speaking of Jordy..

Would anyone start Sanu or Shepard over him this week?

I would definitely start either of those over Jordy. Jordy was never a target monster this year even Rodgers. He got most of his points off big plays and TDs. That new QB looked awful the past few games.
Second Flex Position  
Sly Guy : 11/9/2017 12:04 pm : link
Need one of these low ceiling, mediocre floors to start for my second flex position:

RB: Thomas Rawls @ Arizona
RB: CJ Anderson vs NE
RB: Latavius Murray @ Washington
WR: Corey Davis vs Cinci

Which option stinks the least?
Trade question...  
BamaBlue : 11/9/2017 12:39 pm : link
I got offered Carson Wentz for Rob Gronkowski.

My other TE is Jack Doyle and I have Cam Newton and Jacoby Brisset as my current QB's...

I'm almost there... I'm going to be in the playoffs and think this is the last couple of years for Gronk... Also, with Wentz, I can use Cam for some serious trade bait. Thoughts?

I don't think I'd do that. Doyle is great but he's no Gronk. How do both teams look so you work a different trade out?

Not much else there... He's got Drew Brees, so I think he's just looking for Gronk for a playoff push. I'm thinking more about the future (PPR keeper league)...

You have the leverage here because he can't start Brees AND Wentz. If his TEs suck, you might be able to ship Doyle for Brees and start Gronk.

I don't play Keepers so I can't help there. However, if Gronk is going to cost you a high pick next year and you can keep Wentz as a late rounder, I can see why you'd do this trade.

Starting Ben this week and pairing him with JuJu in my flex, my opponent has Antonio Brown so there was a bit of game theory, my other QB is Derek Carr, so on bye. Rest of lineup WR: Golden Tate, Marvin Jones Jr.
TE: Gronk , RB: Chris Thompson , Dion Lewis , Kenyan Drake ( which 2 of these would you start?) Flex :JuJu , K: Prater , DST: Rams, bench Marshawn Lynch and Jared Cook both on bye, Devin Funchess and Davante Parker , would anyone start either of those 2 in flex instead of JuJu ?

I also tried trading for Matt Stafford looking forward to playoffs , but was rebuked , I offered Rothlisberger and Funchess cause his other QB is Alex Smith on bye, what would you offer off of my team for Stafford , he needs a WR , he has Jordy and Ginn as his main WRs , I donít want have to deal with someone nullifying Tate and Jones jr. In playoffs on me.
Thanks Sly...

I'd probably go CJ Anderson or Rawls, used to be solidly CJ but man that backfield suddenly got crowded.

CJ has been a disaster with the QBs but he is facing NE at home. That does look tempting.

Rawls has the whole backfield to himself this week. At the end of the day, volume matters so I'm probably going to go with him tonight.
Add Rawls
