Williams over Ekeler...

I don't get the hype train with Ekeler... he is a handcuff, nothing more. My opinion

 

What if I sat Collins and moved Williams to RB2 and FLEX'd Ekeler? Although I think Collins will have a great game @GB...

You got the right guys in. Those would be my starts as well. At flex I would go with corey davis. Im not sold on ekelor as of yet and williams probably won't get passing work. Corey davis the volume will be there for sure.  Ekelor is a close second for me.

You would play him against the Steelers D at home? I am probably going to have Davis in FLEX ROS starting Week 12

Haden is out and the only D that really scares me for WRs is the jags. Outside of that every defense has been beat at one point or another in the receiving game. Look who the steelers have played this year. Browns bears jags ravens. Then the bengals who haven't played great either and the colts last week. So yeah I would start him.

Should I slide Williams to RB2, bench Collins and flex Davis?

Definitely dont start Corey against Steelers !! Dudes got torched by Colts and now they are home !!! they will shut down Titans... But since it's a PPR , i really like Ekeler... Gordon has knee issues and he's not consistent + Ekeler scored that much last game WITH Gordon available... I would pull the trigger , both risky picks but like i said since its PPR roll with Ekeler. ! good luck

 

can you check mine ?

Who would you bench so I could put Ekeler in?

thanks for the help on mine. Is Ekeler a definite to get touches? Because at this point, Jamaal Williams is getting at least 20 this week. I think you're line up is fine as is.

 

Im sure he will get his fair share of time. I really want to put in Davis tonight but I am so on the fence about it.. If I do put in Davis I think I'll sit Collins and put Davis in the FLEX and move Williams as RB2.

 

Thoughts?

Lewis and Williams in the RB slots, flex Davis.

 

I'd think about playing Collins over Williams if Woodhead is not activated. I'm on the fence about Williams with Mays potentially stealing some key touches and the Ravens D being pretty good overall, but as far as we know Williams is going to get the volume needed to produce.

 

Davis is getting the targets and that's really all you can really ask for sometimes, he is talented and easily could put up WR2 if not WR1 numbers tonight.. I don't think you can trust Eckler yet. He could easily put up 0.

I don't trust Ekeler. I tried to acquire him this week as a cuff for Gordon, because I think he's flashed enough talent to slot right into Gordon's volume if Gordon goes down, but I don't know if he'll get enough volume to have reliable standalone value. 

 

Like others, I don't think the Steelers defense is as good as advertised (particularly with Haden out and Mitchell out or hobbled tonight). I'm tempted to start Davis myself, but am opting for AJG and JuJu at WR (flexing Kamara).

I would roll with C Davis. This gives you time to see if Ty is going to play or not. To be honest & I am probably the only one, but if Ty is out, I may lean towards playing Collins & Williams, while benching Lewis. I like Lewis, but it is so hard to figure out which NE RB they will go with. Thanks for mine & good luck!
