Stealing djm's format to keep things consistent. Couple quick ppr pick ems for today...

Goff vs Hou or Ben vs Indy
Dion Lewis vs Den or Doctson vs Min

On the latter I was actually considering picking up Corey Davis and dropping Doctson now that Reed and Crowder are getting healthy. Worth it and do I start him? They both have tough matchups this week.
Goff over Ben

and the other is a toss up.

Reed is not getting healthy. It only looks that way.

Standard flex?
Morris or Robbie Anderson?
I would play Goff and Dion Lewis this week  
allstarjim : 11/12/2017 9:20 am : link
and hang on to Doctson over Corey Davis.

Think Iíve got the million dollar DraftKing lineup today

...

Iíll settle for winning a couple hundred bucks
Goff and Dion  
annexOPR : 11/12/2017 9:24 am : link
Houstonís run d is excellent - pass d is not , he will not be able to just hand it off to Gurley all day
You have to go Dion..  
EricJ : 11/12/2017 10:47 am : link
Doctson has not caught more than three passes in ANY game this year. You have to assume that Lewis gets more touches than that.
Aaron Jones or Allen Hurns

Allen Hurns

Iíd stay away from the Packers offense right, Hundley is really effecting what they can do, and defenses are figuring out really quick everything is dink and dunk so they all get close to the line of scrimmage. Hundley cannot throw down the field or outside the numbers.

I think Bears DST is going to be one of the higher scoring units today
Not too sure  
BellAddi540 : 11/12/2017 11:20 am : link
If Goff is head and shoulders above Ben this week........Matchup is better with Ben and Ben does have clear cut weapons. So does Goff obviously but AB and JuJu could go off with LB setting them up.
not sure how healthy Jordan Reed is  
pjcas18 : 11/12/2017 11:35 am : link

Matt Ryan vs DAL

Yes. He is out. And he can never be trusted to be healthy anyways. He's killing me in two leagues

I'd go with Ben. I just have a feeling they will put up a lot of points today

Same here, I luckily have Evan Engram too who I've been starting, but Reed is definitely a roster killer, can't drop him can't rely on him. I am going to drop him though.

Yeah I have Engram in one league too but the other league my backup is Vernon Davis. Which isn't too awful if I know Reed is out. But he has too many games that he starts, only to leave after his first catch because he pulled something
Which RB2  
pjcas18 : 11/12/2017 11:57 am : link
in non-ppr

Kenyon Drake, Doug martin or Frank Gore

I actually have the same dilemma except for I have Drake, Martin and Darkwa. I had Drake set all week but had a change of heart this morning because Carolina is great against the run. I have Darkwa in now but still flip flopping between him and Martin.

In your case I'd go Martin probably

I had Martin, but flipped to Drake. Martin wasn't getting carries last week for no apparent reason. I don't know what is going on in TB.

Still debating this.

I read that they rested Martin because they were getting their asses kicked. But Tampa just does not run the ball. Maybe that changes with Winston out, who knows
The numbers didn't show it but Kenyan Drake looked really  
eclipz928 : 11/12/2017 12:17 pm : link
good last week - he's blazing fast. If Miami can consistently move the ball I expect him to be a solid player the rest of the way.

For this week, Damien Williams is questionable with illness, so it's likely Drake will get more touches - I'd start him over Martin.

How could anyone suggest keeping Dotson over Corey Davis?

Because Davis is a guy who has not established himself yet in the Tennessee offense. Btw, he had 2.8 fantasy points this week...the same number of points he had last week. He is not a critical part of their offense, which is a run-oriented offense, with a QB that has a tendency to miss games to injury and is underwhelming this year.

Versus Josh Doctson, who plays in a pass-first offense, who has basically beaten Terrelle Pryor for his job, and has been at least fantasy-useful in 4 games this season, vs 1 for Davis...and Davis has only even played 4 games. I could be wrong (though I wasn't this week), and perhaps Davis will have better games ahead, but it's all wishing and hoping. For their careers, I would want Davis. For fantasy football THIS SEASON? I'd take Doctson.
