  1. Agree with Rushin. Gurley side is better in the short term, Carson side is better in the long term.
  2. Wentz and Brees should be safe picks. If you need upside, I prefer Goff.
  3. I hate to even think about trading Adams, but of the deals you put forth, I actually think the Adams deal is better. Given your RB situation, getting Robinson and Ridley is worth it, and with the target share Cooks is getting that's a bonus that puts it over the top for me. I'm not as wild about the second deal.
  4. Wentz is probably the safest play, but if you need upside I'd go with Goff.
  5. No, I would not go near this deal. Davis and Scott are handcuffs whose value will plummet when the starters return. Yes, CMC is out again this week, but he should be back soon again, so that's a wash. Fant is a part of Denver's offense, Henry is slowly getting pinched out of the Chargers'. Advantage: Fant. Robinson is much MUCH better than Aiyuk, and even in a bad offense he will keep getting peppered with targets. Advantage: Robinson. This deal isn't even close in my estimation. Just say no!
  6. Jefferson Reagor C Samuel Meyers D Samuel Lazard Mooney For me, the difference between Jefferson and the rest of the field is huge, and there is a similar gap between Reagor and the #3. #3 through #6 are all pretty close for me - Deebo and Lazard could move up. Mooney is last for me by a lot - there just isn't the upside with him that there is with any of the other options.
  7. Honestly, I'd rather have Herbert for that stretch than Watson, but the difference is small for me. I don't think I'd trade Watson 1-for-1 for Herbert if I had Watson, though. My guess is that, even with Herbert's hot start, the perceived value of Watson is higher than that of Herbert. If I was approaching the Herbert owner, I'd say something like "I want your RB2 in exchange for a QB upgrade from Herbert to Watson", and see if he bites.
  8. Slight edge to Tua for the rushing upside.
  9. Really? You'd bench Brandin Cooks, who's been getting 9 targets per game over the last 3 weeks?
  10. I wouldn't play Deebo on his first week back.. Saints D is starting to look better, and with Kittle out the defense is going to focus on Deebo if he plays. It's close for me between the other two. They have both been getting a lot of targets in recent weeks. Very slight edge to me for Kirk - I think he has more scoring upside than Cincinnati does this week. But either one should be okay.
  11. If you had a winning record I would say to drop Claypool, but I think you're at the point where you need his upside. As much as it pains me to say, if it came to that, I'd probably drop Moore. BUT, given your WR depth, I'm willing to bet there are a couple of WR-needy teams out there. Between now and Saturday if I was you I would be hitting the pavement hard, trying to package one of those WRs with a RB2-flexworthy RB to see if I could land a low-end RB1. And the beauty of that is, since all your WRs are so close in value, it doesn't matter which one you offer up for that deal - be wil
  12. Standard scoring, 12-team Superflex league. Playing the guy I'm battling for the last playoff spot. Current Lineup: QBs: Rodgers, Roethlisberger RBs: Henry, Conner WRs: Adams, Fuller, Cooks TE: _______ FLEX: _______ DST: Eagles K: Carlson Bench: Mullins, Mixon, Taylor, Bernard, Murray, Jefferson, Cook, Hooper Decisions: If Roethlisberger is OUT, start Mullins or Rudolph? (leaning toward Mullins, but Saints D has been trending up) At TE: Cook or Hooper? (leaning toward Hooper if he plays, but TEs a
  13. Ugh. Wilkins and Burton both get rushing scores, and Taylor botches his only goal line carry. I've got a must-win game coming up next week against a team I'm fighting for a playoff spot. Taylor just doesn't look good, and he goes up against the Ravens defense next week. Am I crazy for considering starting Moss (vs. SEA) against him? WHIR (leave a link)
  14. I too would go with Williams and Singletary, but I don't feel confident about any of them. LaFleur said that Dillon was ready to step up in Jones' absence, leading me to think that Williams and Dillon will be splitting touches at best. Singletary has not finished as a top-30 RB in any game in which Moss has been active. McKinnon is likely to get shut down rushing, though he is a good pass catcher and should get a few targets with the Patriots selling out to shut down Kittle. Good luck.
  15. Cooks. Not close. Cole is fine - he is this year's version of Cole Beasley on the Bills. But he doesn't have the upside that Cooks does, and with 21 targets in the last two weeks Cooks is demonstrating that he has a pretty safe floor too.
  16. Even with Dalton at the helm, CD is still getting a ton of targets. I'd agree with Jpark and hang onto him for another week or two at least.
  17. WR: Moore should be in line for a solid day. FLEX: I'd go with Gio; he's always done well in the 1-2 games that he ends up starting for an injured Mixon.
  18. To this point in the season, Drake in a starting role has received 8 targets, while Gio in a backup role has received 20 targets. Now Gio is starting. Go with Gio.
  19. Agree. Go with Ryan. Brady should also be solid, but with the Raiders o-line having not been able to practice all week I'm expecting the Bucs to be in a positive game-script in a low scoring game, while the ATL-DET game should be more of a shootout.
  20. Completely agree with Non-Stick Dude above. Fuller: better QB, getting targets, and only needs 1 big hit to return value. Plus, if you're as cynical as I am, he's playing your Packers, which means he's guaranteed to go off, right?
  21. Stafford is a great start this week - go with him. I'm not wild about Swift, I think I need to see another double-digit touch effort from him before I feel comfortable rolling him into my lineup. But even though he hasn't lived up to expectations, I have a hunch that D.J. Moore is due for a better week this week - that is who I would start of the options you presented.
  22. Cooper > Woods > Chark Woods' perceived value is high right now because he's scored TDs in 4 of his past 5 games. That is bound to regress, and in 3 of 6 games he has totaled less than 40 yards in a run-first offense. Cooper may be playing with Dalton, but Dalton is still going to have to chuck it 40+ times a game. Give me Amari out of this group.
  23. Trade 1: I slightly like it if you get Godwin, but not as much for Cooks Trade 2: I don't like this trade at ALL. I have Robinson and Taylor valued similarly; throwing in Gibson makes the price way too high. Trade 3: I sort of like it, but it makes me nervous since Thomas hasn't played more than one week. In the long run it might be okay, but I think it's also overpaying for Thomas' current value. Trade 4: That one I think I like. I expect DJ and Cooks to both have good second halves of the season, so to get them for Gibson-or-Swift plus a 1-2 week rental is absolutely wo
  24. I agree to pass on this trade. Houston is looking better since O'Brien got fired, and the rising tide should float all the boats, including DJ. DJ + Godwin is too much to pay for an RB who you still don't know how long he'll be out. (Plus, if by the time CMC is healthy the Panthers are out of the playoff hunt, they might go easy on CMC for the rest of the year and try to save him for next year).
  25. I'd also take Adams and Parker. Last week aside, whenever Adams is active he should be a top-10 play, and I don't feel as confident about Golladay. You have depth, so rolling Adams and DK out every week and then playing matchups with Parker, JJ, and Diontae should give you a nice team to field every week.
