Should I start Mostert vs Cardinals  over Brian Hill vs Panthers this week? I don’t like Howard vs New England matchup this week.

 

I like Jordan Howard vs New England matchup this week. 

 

If Doug Pederson has seen any film, avoiding Gilmore and McCourty is the best way to move the ball against New England. Browns did it with Nick Chubb, and the Ravens did it with Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram. Do you know who has the #1 "power" run blocking OL in the league? It is the Eagles. 

 

https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/ol/2019 (sort by Power Rank)

 

It would be unwise for the Eagles to do any serious passing, especially when Alshon Jeffery is banged up, and they have an inferior WR corps with DJax on IR, and Zach Ertz and the WRs are going to be mostly used as decoy. Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders are going to get 40 carries at least, mark my words, with Carson Wentz possibly running it another 5-10 times.

 

Of course, everything goes out the window if the Eagles cannot contain the Patriots but after the bye week, it is very possible they limit the Patriots to the 20s by controlling clock. I made the mistake of sitting Ingram vs the Patriots, I'd suggest you don't sit Jordan Howard vs the Patriots. At worst, he will give you the same as the other options you are considering.

Made it to the playoffs

 

Mack vs Jags

 

Sanu vs Eagles

 

I honestly don't trust Mack at this point especially after the dolphins debacle. 

Sanu, Eagles are a Pass funnel defense, that is where NE is going to make their money.

@chad72 @Narcosys
So currently I have 

WR: M.Thomas vs Tampa  and John Brown vs Dolphins starting

RB: Mack vs Jacksonville, Hill vs Panthers and Howard vs New England

TE: Henry

 

 Bench is Ridley vs Panthers Brown Vs Texans, Samuel vs Falcons and Mostert vs Cardinals. Should anyone get swapped out?

Hopkins. Robby Anderson is limited in practice and with 2 consecutive TD games, Crowder might get more attention. If Robby is a full go, Crowder.

 

With Brissett starting, Mack, definitely more touches than Hunt or Tyrell, IMO

So starting Mack, which is what i have now. Currently flexing Tyrell Williams, Diggs is an option, but isn't IMO, only other options are J. Samuels but Conners is back, leaving Hunt who performed well against Buffalo. 

 

Both Williams and Hunt are risky, but in flex RB might be better. Tyrell though, I would think, should bounce back against Cinci.

You gotta start Hill against the Panthers soft  D. I couldn't get him in my FAAB and this is the one game to start him. Plus Mostert and Howard is questionable.

Oh yeah, with the Steelers in Baker's face, Hunt will catch enough passes to be flex worthy, IMO.

Hands down Damien Williams, he has come back to favor with Andy Reid lately and the Chargers' run D should give plenty of touches to him because of Mahomes.

Will Fuller at Baltimore or JuJu at Cleveland for my WR2?? Half-PPR league

 

I have to make a decision before tonight. :( 

 

@Narcosys @Jared Cisneros @CR91 @runthepost

Will fuller, but clearly it's a risk with his hammy injury. He's the better option imo but if you have nothing else and he doesn't go, you've basically handed the game over.

Boy, James Conner just can’t stop himself from screwing owners over. He’s so fragile he’d get hurt flipping burgers at White Castle. I made the decision to double down on him after the Miami game and seeing his schedule to end the season. 
 

I’ll probably never draft a Steelers player again after dealing with his delicate * all season. :facepalm:

Ugh it's never easy. I was going to drop Jaylen Samuel's to pick up Williams,  now that Conners is hurt again,  leaving Jaylen Samuels as replacement for Cook next week vs Cinci. Hunt is an option to drop, but he faces miami next week and could be a better play than Mack who faces Houston. 

 

Leaving Alexander mattison as my last option to drop, but he's my Cook handcuff...lol

 

Maybe just drop Tyrell Williams as I'm only playing him next week vs jets over D. Adams who plays SF.

@runthepost @Narcosys - Updates for you, Jordan Howard has a stinger and Alshon Jeffrey is doubtful as well, so both may not play. Patriots' defense gonna eat.

Diggs vs Denver 

Or

T. Williams vs Cinci

 

I feel Diggs can get shutdown, but Oakland is just going to run so much I don't think willams has much of a ceiling or floor.

Im feeling Diggs because Antonio Brown, OBJ and Diggs, those type of shifty guys have given issues to the Broncos’ Harris in the past, and gotten some chunk yardage.

Yup

 

My opponent has Kelce left and I'm beating him by 34 (he had Woods starting and JuJu in his flex). Helped get my win. 

 

However for next week.  My week 12 lineup was looking like

 

RB: Mack @Hou,  J. Samuels, @ Cinci, Hunt vs Mia, Cook bye

WR: Thomas vs Car, Mclaurin vs Det,  T. Williams @ Jets, Adams @ SF, Tate @ Chi, Diggs By

 

now do I drop Mclaurin or Williams to pick up Jonathan William's, or just roll with Samuels and Hunt?

 

Also, I'm benching Adams because of SF, but they are showing signs of vulnerabilities, would you play him instead?

Yes, I’d play Adams at home. Yes I’d try to pick up Jonathan Williams.

Ugh. Do we drop Mack on waiver claims this week? I think he’s done for the year, so I’m heavily considering it. I have James Conner’s perpetually injured * already clogging up my IR on a weekly basis, and Samuels on my bench for when he scrapes his elbow and has to miss time. 
 

Pick up Jonathan Williams if you think you have to, but don’t have high expectations for him. Houston’s run D is much tougher than the Jags and held Mack to just 44 yards on 18 carries in our first game. We’ve also got Wilkins (Likely) coming back, and this coaching staff loves to neuter RBs potential the way they sub them in and out. Mack has just as many games totaling less than 10 points as he does 15 or more. 0 games in the 10-15 range. The way we churn RBs in and out makes them boom or bust options. 
 

I’m going to claim Williams just because Mack is out and I need help. But I’m honestly hoping I don’t get him so I don’t have to make that decision Thursday. If Wilkins is out again then yes. By work volume projections he’s a good bet. But if Wilkins is back this week I think he hurts your feelings by weeks end, especially if you start him. 
 

After this season I’d have to really talk myself into it to draft James Conner in the 10th or later, and I’ll never roster another Colts RB under this coaching staff again.

Hey, we all love those bell cow RB options that get us 10-15 points every week.  If you look closely, there are as many of them with such inconsistencies as Mack. Game flow and RBBC due to RB injury possibilities by nature of the position will lead to such inconsistent usage. We are definitely not an alpha RB (3 down backs) kind of team.

Current line-up this week.

 

Half PPR:

WR: D. Adams @SF, M. Thomas v Car, T. Williams @NYJ,  G. Tate @Chi, T. McLaurin vs Det, Diggs (BYE)

RB: J. Samuels @Cinci, K. Hunt vs Mia, Cook (BYE), Mattison (BYE), Mack (IR), D. Guice vs Det (Waiver Claim in), J. Williams @HOU (Waiver Claim in)

Def: Pit @Cinci, Bal @LAR

 

Looking to get D. Guice and probably flex him in over T. Williams.  Currently starting Pittsburgh D, but Ravens might be the better option here...idk

 

Full PPR:

WR: Hopkins vs Ind, D. Moore @NO, J. Crowder vs Oak, ODB vs Mia, Gallup @NE, Tate @Chi

RB: Elliot @NE, D. Johnson vs Ind, Cook (Bye)

TE: Z. Ertz vs Sea, Olsen @NO

Def: Bal @LAR, NE vs Dal

 

Again, starting Bal Defense, but NE is NE.  Also, Bo Scarborough (@ Was) is available on waivers. Thinking of grabbing him and starting him over D. Johnson.

49ers have done well against good teams like Seahawks and the Rams, they should give you sacks and limit the number of points, IMO. No???

 

Goff has had lots of issues with his O-line this year. But that game is at home for him. Rodgers takes plenty of sacks or throws it away, won't give picks much but will take sacks. I have the Eagles' D for weeks 13-16.

 

I hate to add a 4th defense and hog more roster spots just for 1 week, hence the question.

Mayfield since he’s been taking care of the ball. Only time Jimmy G threw for more than 2 TDs this season both came vs Cardinals I think.

 

Hunt definitely, if it’s a half or full PPR league

    • Maybe he did decide to retire at the end of last season, but consider this:  Would Ballard have been able to attract FAs with Brissett as his QB?  Maybe Ballard asked Luck to hold off on retirement so he could sign some good FAs first (Funchess, Houston, etc) under the guise that they would get to play with Luck.  Maybe Ballard, Reich, and Luck realized it might be best for the team if Luck waited until August to retire, even though he might have decided to do so last January.     And for what it's worth, Luck was going to give the money back, but Irsay insisted he keep it (just in case he decides to come back so the Colts still retain his rights).   You're free to assume the worst, but we don't know, and we probably never will.
    • I have similar thoughts on Love, but not sure what happened this year is something he's "learned". I think it was just a little unavoidable given all changes to the program, and a product of him being asked to do too much. Not sure if the bad would carry over to a better situation and better coaching.   I agree on Fromm. I'm still up in the air on Eason. Did he say anything about Herbert?
    • Just curious, do you feel the same way about Barry Sanders?   He retired abruptly in July right before training camp, not at the end of the previous season.  So the Lions went through the offseason (draft, free agency) thinking he would play, the fans thought he was going to play, but he abruptly retires and on top of that flies to London.   Granted, this was before Twitter, so his retirement wasn't leaked to Adam Schefter and wasn't nearly as sloppy as Lucks retirement.  But do you feel like Sanders "quit" on the Lions?
    • Ballard does seem to focus on a position group in the draft. WRs this time? QBs? Lol
    • I watch a YouTube account called strong opinion sports. He is an ex college QB who watches lots of tape and has good breakdowns. He says that Love has Patrick Mahomes talent and needs to sit behind a veteran QB to learn good habits. Carrying a bad team caused him to learn bad habits and hurt his development. He does not like Eason at all. He thinks Fromm is a good leader but is not super talented. He was surrounded by great players and still struggled somewhat. And of course he loves Burrow.  Who doesn’t ?
