I'd go with Morris. Love me some Kyle Shanahan RBs. He'll get points. I don't trust Conner and the Browns are sneaky better all around.

Definitely Conner. Supposed to be pretty bad weather too. I’d think they have a very heavy run first approach.

Browns are sneaky better than the Vikings? Because that’s who the Niners are going up against. The #2 rush defense from a year ago....

That’s my number one reason for leaning Conner

Ah, didn't know they were playing the Vikes. I honestly still stick by Morris. I think Conner will disappoint people, like 15 rushes for 45 yards and 2 catches for 15.

Morris won't even get 15 carries. Matt Brieda is starting for them

I stated Peyton Barber over Marshawn Lynch. It was a last minute change.

Like when you said to draft Bell over Gurley? Or advice someone to play Ryan over Wilson?

Man, in my IDP league I drafted TJ Watt with my last round pick. I thought he was better last season, so once I saw his stats, I dropped him for Whitney Mercilus.

Mercilus got 1 point yesterday. Watt got 22.5.

similar... Watt sat on my bench after it looked like he was doubtful to even play... alec ogletree got me 6, but it was still a -14.5 point decision

fortunately I had Myles Garrett blow up for 14.5 :P

plus I had Mahomes and Evans - so despite not having Bell this week (and replacing him with Marquise Goodwin who put up a fat goose egg) I still won :D

Nice. Unfortunately, my league is total points. So I just gave up 21 points. :banghead:

Alright, let's get into some waiver wire stuff.

Looking to add a WR in 1 PPR league.

Current: Fitzgerald, Crowder, Mike Williams, Sammy Watkins, Keelan Cole

Probably dropping Watkins.

Available- Enunwa, Allison, Ryan Grant

Who should I go with?

Give me Quincy. When he was health two years ago he put up a 58/857/4 line with 106 targets.

I see the Jets trailing a decent amount this season so he may be in the most pass happy O out of those three. I also see him as being the most consistent out of those three.

There’s been no news I’ve seen about Greg Olsen other than he injured the same foot he had surgery on last year. Do I drop him and try to add Cook?

Also I’d go Quincy for waiver wire FA

Week 2 brings me two decisions to make.


Flacco (vs CIN) or Garoppolo (vs DET)
Mixon (vs BAL) or Miller (VS TEN)


I’m leaning Flacco and Miller. Ravens D looks pretty solid. Flacco played really well, has better weapons and Jimmy stunk it up last week. But clearly has the better matchup.

They say he’s likely to miss a few weeks to rest, finish season and then have surgery. Sounds like he’ll be hurt again.

I literally went against everyone I asked online and got Allison. Because the Lions D was a mess, idk if the Jets O will work that well again. And it's always good to have guys on good offenses. If Allison is the third option for Rodgers, he should be solid.

Wow...are you in a 2 QB league?

I'm in a 2 QB league and I've owned Flacco for 2 out of the last 3 years. He has these games and you think, "finally, he's back," and then he goes back to 175 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs. It's a tough one but I gotta go Garoppolo. Maybe the Lions D will still be figuring things out.

Mixon looks like he may have reached stud (aka do-not-bench) territory. Especially if your league is PPR. If it's not PPR, it's tougher but I think I roll with Mixon either way.

No it’s a 1 QB league. I just picked Flacco up off the wire. Not PPR for this one.

My team is stacked except at QB. Choices for this week:

Matt Ryan vs Panthers
Mitch Trubisky vs Seahawks
Eli Manning @ Cowboys

I can't decide.

Yikes....I'm not sure why anybody would even have Mitch on their FF team.

I'd go Ryan, Manning, somebody that won't get you negative points like Mitch.

No QB's on the waiver wire? That's pretty rough. Those are three bad options and three good defenses (from what we've seen so far).

It's tough to make a move like that this early in the season. I'd value them as equals right now. After Week 2, they could completely trade stat lines from Week 1. The only thing we know is, Seattle hasn't been able to run the ball since Marshawn was there. I'll leave it up to you. But just letting you know, it's not the "wrong" move either way. No extra DSTs, Ks, TEs or QBs on the roster?
