It's not actually for my team, mostly just playing devil's advocate with a friend who is convinced Rodgers is continuing to be a good start through the playoffs in his league that goes to week 17 (woof). I think he might need that boom/bust type variance in his lineup for the week 16/17 part of the playoffs if he gets there.
This week I'd likely play Rodgers in hope of a post-McCarthy boom, but if you have one more week of Allen outperforming Rodgers, I'd feel pretty good about playing him ROS. GLSP prefers Allen over Rodgers by a fair bit for this week.
Any reason you'd be concerned that the rushing wouldn't continue? Allen still has a terrible floor, but his ceiling looks nice.

Week 17?! what on earth.. Someone help you friend. I think i'd play Rodgers this week, but you DEFINITELY want to play Allen going down the line.
GLSP results surprised me as well. I think some of the recent performances by Rodgers is mucking that up, but i could be wrong. My bigger concern about Allen is simply the lack of weapons + defenses adjusting to the style of play. if they're preparing for a mobile QB, they'll be more likely to take away the fantasy viability. The WRs with Zay and Robert Foster don't instill confidence.
@Will - i think you can sit Sammy if you're able to play Boyd and Sutton.

@will @hrr5010 Not exactly on topic, but it's gross to hear that Benjamin is visiting the Chiefs.

Urgh. Hope it's for a role as a dietary consultant rather than an onfield one...

The no Odell panic decisions for Shawn and @hrr5010
I'm deciding between:
Wentz or a FA like Baker, J. Allen, Dak?
Pick 3 with at least 1 TE .5ppr:
Njoku, Vance McD, L.Blount, S. Shepard, N. Hines, Tre'q smith, (and FA options like Callaway, Zay jones, t. gabriel, TyMo)
Finally: pick your favorite 3 .5 ppr
a. cooper, Ekeler, J. Samuels (at RB), j, landry, m. mack, t. coleman, t. smith
#19 By: hrr5010, December 8th, 2018 13:59
I'm freaking out man. I lost OBJ on a bunch of playoff squads where I don't have the bye.
I'd roll out Baker or Dak over Wentz this week.
Njoku would be the TE for me. I'd play Shep + Hines (maybe the Colts trail and need plenty of Hines?) I also don't mind rolling out Blount with Kerryon out. I like Zay as well, but I prefer the other two options.
Cooper, Ekeler, Samuels for me. I don't hate swapping Samuels and Landry though.
#20 By: Dennis, December 8th, 2018 15:08
It’s brutal! I’m scrambling yeah. Ohhh Lamar is on Fa too is u prefer to wentz baker dak
#21 By: hrr5010, December 8th, 2018 15:26
I still prefer Baker and Dak over the guys mentioned. Stupid Joe Flacco active
#22 By: Shawn Siegele , December 8th, 2018 15:27
Agree with @hrr5010, although I'm rooting against Hines. I might be tempted to go with Zay. The 3 TDs stand out, but he's also got 20 targets over the last two weeks.
#23 By: Dennis, December 8th, 2018 23:06
I think Zay had a donut in the middle of those 20 targets though...vs jacksonville right? would that make you pause?
I'm leaning on the Dak, Hines, Shepard route. but i find zay a little tempting. i think thats also maybe cuz i grew up a jets fan and expect them to hammer us.
do you prefer Dak or Cousins?
#24 By: Jason, December 9th, 2018 09:14
@hrr5010 @JollyG804 @FF_Contrarian rather pick up John Kelly or N Hines as an end of the bench guy? More of a block against other teams move
#25 By: hrr5010, December 9th, 2018 09:31
I’d go with John Kelly.
@JollyG804 that’s one I’m unsure about. I think I prefer Dak, but it’s close
#26 By: hrr5010, December 9th, 2018 22:19
DID YOU ROLL OUT AMARI??? I mean he absolutely smashed,
#27 By: Dennis, December 9th, 2018 23:46
Amari who? Stoudemire? JK Yes! I threw him out there in the two places i had him and thank goodness! here are the lineups i asked for your and Shawn's advice on:
I really owe you one for suggesting i go with Dak, man thanks... I benched cousins and wentz for him and knock wood, will get a chance to move on because of it.
#28 By: Dennis, December 10th, 2018 23:34
The 2 point loss cause Cousins melts down and Odell sat out n the falcons never throw to tevin anymore even though that was the best their offense looked in months
#29 By: hrr5010, December 11th, 2018 08:40
I remember his 6 month run as a Knick. Glorious moments at the Garden.
I'm glad you made it through. absolutely no contest here, despite the dud from Tre'Quan.
All the RotoViz stars are here! @FF_Contrarian is probably proud.
That Cousins melt cost me a win in one league. i had Thielen AND Diggs and lost my matchup by <2.5 PPR points. sigh
#30 By: Shawn Siegele , December 11th, 2018 13:34
@JollyG804 @hrr5010 That game last night was one of the very worst. I hope not too many RotoViz guys got knocked out with that.
@FantasyNerd Did you pick up Hines? He had a down game but continues to have a role in that offense.
#31 By: Dennis, December 11th, 2018 14:20
rough for sure.... luckily as it worked out for me in a bunch of places i have diggs and mahomes paired and mahomes got a decent amount of those teams Bye weeks...
but the no ekeler, breida, tevin not being on the chiefs, kerryon johnson, and ? of odell could certainly wipe me out this week. im gonna be resorting to bunch of odd plays
#32 By: Dennis, December 11th, 2018 22:18
i dont even know what questions to ask you guys yet! this is a very challenging waiver week even with Charlie's great advice.
how playable is Tevin this week, like him over hines with the cards at home? is it possible that someone like ito, or dixon, or mcguire is preferable? i think on one team i could play tevin + hines, or even tevin AND ito. im a projected 20 point dog...
put in bids for mcguire and dixon so ill have choices.
#33 By: hrr5010, December 12th, 2018 11:10
I uhhh have to kinda roll out Tevin this week. i think he's a fine desperation option but i like the bids for McGuire and Dixon.
