I've got a tough decision. Opponent already got 21 points from a solid Dalton outing and I want to at least match that. Options are Eli vs. the Bucs or Big Ben vs. Raiders. Started Ben last week and was able to win but would have had an easy blowout if I went with Eli. Can't really see a particular advantage with either defense. Probably leaning towards Ben at this point because I always get burned with Eli. If I start him he gets 6 points, if he sits he gets 30.

Then by your choice to sit him.... you should clearly start him.

No seriously, it's the Bucs. We are prime to give a ton of **** up. Start Eli.

Eli and Winston are both T-10 fantasy QB plays this week.

Should be some fireworks at RayJay Sunday evening.

Travis Kelce vs. Den or Delanie Walker vs. Car at TE? And for FLEX Kelce/Walker, CJ Anderson or Kamar Aiken?

Delanie has had 6+ rec in 4 straight games...Kelce has been pretty pedestrian. Roll with Delanie

For Flex I like Aiken this week and he's really the only target in Baltimore at the moment.

Thanks Aya, that's exactly how I have my lineup set right now. The only change I could make is perhaps move Starks from one of my RB spots to FLEX if I can summon the courage to play McCoy. Even though he is probable, I am scared of this Jets defense. My thinking right now is to only play one of these backs as either K.Willaims or Lacy could feasibly get the lion share of carries this week,

2 trades with 2 different people. Would you make either?

Chris Johnson for Allen Robinson
Tyler Eifert for Marshawn Lynch


The 1st players in each trade are the ones I'd be giving up.

I would make the 2nd one. I'm dubious Chris Johnson, age 63, is going to be effective down the stretch.
For the same reason, I wouldn't make the 2nd one.

I'm generally dubious of older running backs when you get down to fantasy playoff time.

Who To Start:

Russell Wilson vs Arizona
Jameis Winston vs Dallas
Landry Jones vs Cleveland

I didn't think this would be a question heading into the year, with Wilson, but he's been mediocre and he's facing a nasty defense. It seems like the he gives me the same game every week now - 200 yards, 1-2 TDs, 1 INT, 30 rushing yards. He's never been terrible but he's also only had one game all year that actually clearly helped me win.

Winston has only accounted for 6 TDs over his 4 game "breakout." He's doing a nice job avoiding turnovers but that only helps so much in fantasy. Plus, no VJ, and ASJ continues to lay on his death bed from a bruise. I'm not sure I can reasonably expect more than I could from Wilson, with more rookie downside.

Jones intrigues me the most. He's the least talented guy, obviously, but he has the most weapons and he's facing the worst opponent for these purposes.

Unhelpfully, our league's points projector has them all within a point of each other.

Yeah, all of these are very close in projection totals, but I roll with Wilson simply because the last time he played AZ (I know they're a slightly different defense now) he lit them up. Always start your studs...That's the rule for me

Watkins


Sure hope you didn't take this advice. Watkins should be a reliable, high-floor WR1, but in this offense he is best suited for tournaments, a Benjamin/Austin type play, WR3, FLEX option only. Remember what Hurns and Robinson accomplished despite facing this same secondary last week? Jax puts the ball in the air, roll with this passing game the rest of the way if you got a piece.

Yup, I just picked up Bortles in one of leagues. He's a strong play vs the Ravens defense this week.

Crazy what a difference a year makes.

I recently added Derek Carr and will be playing him this week instead of Peyton Manning. I'll find out soon enough just how stupid or smart this move is.

Hurns is a strong play if he's healthy. Hopefully he will be. I have Allen Robinson now and Hurns playing only increases his value.

No. Not a homer. It's risky, and the Cowboys have been pretty solid in Pass D, but the Seahawks have been excellent - 186 YPG allowed and only 6 passing TDs against them all year.

It is a toss up

Brees isn't the same QB on the road and game flow for Dalton will not be in his favor as I see the Bengals blowing out Texans and going to the ground.

If I have to pick...I'm going Brees

Wilson or Big Ben? Makes it a hard decision for me when Wilson put up points last week and you have that Seattle secondary.
