It's do or die for me this week. Win, and I'm guaranteed in the playoffs. Lose, and I more than likely don't make it. Could use some help picking out my lineup!
RB: Breida, DJ, Aaron Jones, Chubb, Kerryon (Unlikely to play) Ekeler, Coleman
WR: Keenan Allen, Diggs, Amari, Golladay
We start 1 QB/2 RB 2 WR/2 FLEX/1 TE, PPR league.
I've been rolling with Breida, Chubb, Jones, DJ, Diggs & Allen the last couple weeks, but Chubb has a pretty brutal matchup, and I just acquired Ekeler in a trade. Additionally, Amari has a prime matchup, but even though he's been consistent with the Cowboys thus far, he terrifies me haha.
Leaning toward the following lineup, but would welcome some input:
RB: DJ, Aaron Jones
WR: Keenan, Diggs
FLEX: Cooper, Breida
Thanks in advance!

@aweraky I would consider starting Ekeler or Chubb over Breida in the flex, as 49ers are at Seattle in a hard divisional game where they may make a QB change (notwithstanding the Fantasy Streaming app rating it an easy matchup). I know Chubb has a hardish matchup vs Texans, but you have to bet on talent.
I would also consider starting Golladay as a high upside option against the Rams. They are bound to get behind and will have to throw to catch up. They're also at home. Possibly over Amari who will have to contend with Lattimore and Apple, depending on where he lines up.

Have RB Hunt and A Jones
WR Is Juju and Brandin Cooks
Need 2 for my flex
Being a lifelong Charger fan I just know they will implode at Pitt
Thanks, 6-6 now with a 50% chance of making the playoffs with your help.

Your team is stacked. Wow. Hopefully you can make it to the playoffs and wreck shop.
It's really really tough to sit Diggs right now. One of my favorite players and he is just electric. Also tough to sit Odell. I'd probably pick him as your second.

Win and I'm in situation in 12 team PPR. QB 2RB 2WR TE Flex
I need an RB and Flex from the following group: Chubb, Breida, Coleman, Evans and Edelman.
Leaning Chubb and Evans right now.

To thickfreaknss, Chubb and Evans is right call.
To Bobkjun, Nice problem to have. This is where I lean heavily on the sim scores. Since their projections are so close (about 3 points), I would tend to go with the Sim scores.
if you are going into the game favored, lean to the higher floor and average numbers.
If you are the underdog (don't think that is likely), you roll the dice with the highest number.
I have Ekeler and Sony
Ekeler has a 1.41, 12.74 and 24.07 high end
Sony is 2.84, 14.15 and 25.46
ESPN rates Ekeler higher so its' close.
I think I'm leaning Ekeler since he is involved with running and passing.

I think I might do Ekeler there, too, but it's really close: Michel just gets so much volume in an offense that scores consistently, but Ekeler will get that passing volume big time.
Melvin Gordon down, so which would you start in PPR: Theo Riddick or TJ Yeldon? It's a spot start this week, and I'll stream RBs as I can until Gordon comes back, if he does at all during the regular season.

If Diggs is unable to go, who would be my best choice for filling in for him? PPR league
Breida, Chubb, Ekeler, Golladay
@HowFantasy I'd probably lean Yeldon, but there is some risk in not knowing how often Kessler will throw to his backs.
#10 By: How, November 30th, 2018 11:16
I think Golladay. He should be force fed like a beast.
#11 By: Novashun, November 30th, 2018 13:29
Best Flex Play - 12 man full PPR.
Kirk or DJ Moore? If I get 10 or 12 pts... im happy. Rest of lineup is stacked.
Chiefs Def or Sea?
#12 By: William Russell, December 2nd, 2018 06:59
@novashun I would definitely lean DJ Moore over Kirk. It's a WR1 situation on a good offense v a WR2 on a bad one for me.
The D/ST question is interesting. I'm starting SEA this wk over other streamers. They are at home and solid. But the guy I'm playing has Kittle & Breida, which makes me a little nervous, though SF QBs are terrible.
Chiefs D generally concedes points but gets pressure, picks, etc. This may be less of an issue vs the terrible Raiders however. Could just be get ahead and ball control. Would lean Seahawks in your situation.

win and i 'm in in a .5PPR QB, 3WR, 2RB, TE, FLX
this is what i was thinking of going with
WRs OBJ, Antonio, Golladay
RBs Lindsay, Kamara
last week i rolled with Lindsay and feel confident doing that again, but do i trust Ekeler as my FLX or do i throw in Spencer Ware because of the matchup and the likelihood KC'll be ahead early and lean on the run? now i'm kind of worried of the Chargers imploding, thanks to @Bobkjun
#14 By: JDean, December 2nd, 2018 11:32
@joenamathscoat I’d go with Ware in the easier matchup and better game script. Also like the Chiefs to make an “our running game is just fine, thanks” sort of statement.
Pick 2 WRs (non-PPR): JuJu, E. Sanders, Hilton (Ramsey is playing)
