Figured I'd get us started here. Full PPR, 1QB/2RB/2WR/2Flex/1TE.
RBs: DJ, Drake, Royce, Yeldon
WRs: Allen, Diggs, Stills, Anderson, Fuller, Godwin
TEs: Gronk, Kittle
My flex spots are giving me some trouble...got a few decent options I wouldn't mind plugging in there. For my 2 RB spots, I'm loading up DJ & Drake, tough matchups be damned. For my WR spots, Keenan & Diggs are locked in as well.
For my flex spots....I'm leaning Freeman & Yeldon, but I have seen arguements for Godwin Fuller & Stills across various places.
Freeman probably isn't going to catch a ton of passes this year (although I've seen it mentioned in a couple places he's ran more routes out of the backfield than Lindsay last week) but a matchup at home against the Raiders seems like a very tempting target to load him up. It's always dangerous to listen to coach-speak, but it sounds like Gase & Tannehill want to get the ball even more to Stills. Godwin could smash without Jackson this week, and Fuller could soak up quite a bit of targets as well. Even Kittle seemingly has a great matchup, but I don't think I'd be comfortable loading him into the Flex spot just yet.
Of course, if Fournette doesn't play, Yeldon is almost a must start, right?
Thanks in advance!

I have a dilemma as well...
If you had to start one.. A. Rob, Stills, Crowder, Godwin
I think stills is undervalued but I know Arob had a top 15 WOPR

Go with Arob.
Cooper or Agholor in full ppr?
#4 By: Adam Eraky, September 13th, 2018 20:26
I'd go Agholor until Cooper shows us something.
Any advice on mine?

If Goodwin is out, I’d be very tempted to start Kittle in the flex. I think Godwin is a must start if DJax is out. Fuller I probably wouldn’t start week 1, but he has tons of upside. Freeman a safe option. Yeldon a must start is LF can’t go.
I’d go Freeman and Yeldon, but so much depends on injuries. If DJax is out, Godwin becomes a must start. If Goodwin is out, I’d probably start Kittle over Freeman.

Pick 1 RB, non-PPR:
Jamaal Williams (v MIN)
Matt Breida (v DET)
James White (@ JAX)
Austin Ekeler (@ BUF)
All have some question marks which make the decision hard for me. Williams had a poor Week 1 and is facing a tough Vikings D. Breida has a cupcake matchup but is in a committee where he didn’t get goalline rushes. I like James White even though it’s standard simply because it’s the Pats and they score (Looks like Burkhead is playing). Ekeler had the best Week 1 of the 4 but if I’m using a receiving back, I think I’d go White > Ekeler.

I would go Breida. Plus matchup like you said, and upon rewatching versus the Vikings, I thought he actually looked really good and explosive. Probably just an issue of the Vikings D being really good - He is your best bet for a long play also.

Robby Anderson, Mccoy, Allison, Eckeler, and Hines on the bench. Would playing Mccoy and gordon hoping the game is strong in the ground game kind of hedge my RB positions? My opponent put up 20 points with Crabtree and Mixon Thursday night.
12 man PPR.
Mccoy - Ekeler, Anderson????

Having some trouble deciding who to start in my flex. Full point PPR. Options are:

Coleman and it’s not close with Freeman out.
I’ve got a couple:
Breida burkhead or ekeler in a .5 Ppr (obviously assuming Burkhead plays)
Royce Freeman burkhead Chris Thompson .5 ppr
Also, crazy to consider benching Davante Adams vs Minnesota/Rhodes in favor of Enunwa?
#12 By: Jason, September 15th, 2018 15:23
- Breida if Michel is playing, otherwise Burkhead
- Chris Thompson
- Not crazy, but probably overthinking it. If Arod plays, no way you bench him. If he’s out MAYBE consider it, but Adams should still get targets and is a RS threat still.

Got a last minute one here, could use some advice:
Yeldon or Royce?
If fournette is active, I’m gonna go Royce...If he’s inactive, yeldon should get plenty of work, but the raiders run defense does not look good at all, and Royce is nominally the goal line back.
#14 By: William Russell, September 16th, 2018 12:32
@aweraky I'd go for Royce. Better player against worse team wins every time for me
