    I find with QBs it is better to just keep playing the guy who is clearly having a better year.

    Wentz.. matty ice has no one to throw to other than kenny G. marvin is hurt , no tate + dallas D is good against WR. wentz has more weapons, and you know it'll be a shootout with the way the saints put up points.

    Who should I start in my PPR league: Eric Ebron (vs TEN) or Trey Burton (vs MIN)?

    Need two flex starters:

    Lamar Miller
    Funchess
    Courtland Sutton
    Demaryius Thomas

    Who ya got?

    Big week for me. If I win I should leap frog two spots in the standings and be well on my way to solidifying a playoff spot. I beat a team with Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, Nick Chubb, and Tod Gurley last week. Think I’m finally catching stride.

    Tough one because Ebron is more volatile due to lack of snaps, but also has huge upside and is a red zone target for a scorching QB who isnt getting touched.

    Ebron has just been so good it would be hard for me to bench him.

    Thoughts on Lamar Jackson? @moestavern19 I know you picked him up as backup QB (for W12?). My standard league QB is on bye week 12, since the best option (Baker) was grabbed already, wondering if Jackson is a good gamble? BAL ROS is really attractive (CIN, OAK, at ATL, at KC, TB, at LAC).

    Intrigued by his rushing floor. Not expecting much else. Flacco may also be back by next week.

    That's pretty insane value if he only wants Gurley and Watkins. Conner is a top 5 RB and MIchel looked very good. Hopkins is automatic start, would give you a very good WR corps with 2 very good RBs. I think you should go for it.

    Cool. I was just a bit skeptical after the last few weeks Conner has had. With the concussion protocol etc.

    Like Pittsburgh has run him into the ground expecting Bell to return. And they may lighten his load now to preserve him for the playoffs since no Bell.

    I think you can't do that and also win games.

    Your current RB situation aside from Gurley is dire.

    Happy Thanksgiving all.

    Got a unusual question. I am 8-3 in the league, scored most post so far, and sure to make the playoffs (8 teams, no 1st round byes). Only 5 player benches so can't hold two kickers. I have Butker as my kicker, who is on bye this week. My plan was to replace and stream kickers ROS, but the Zeurlein owner already dropped his kicker which made me think... should I add him 11/24, take the zero at kicker, and have Legatron ROS? The question... is he enough better (perhaps 2 FPs per game) to warrant taking the zero this week? Or taking a zero at DST (I stream DSTs, this week LAC). Or... even Zuerlien is only a K, and better to stream kickers ROS after dropping Butker? btw, dropping my "worst" non-starter would mean dropping either Sony Michel or Phillip Lindsay, so would prefer not doing that.

    You play for the playoffs. If you’ve already clinched and there’s no first round byes, I’d take a zero on defense to get zuerlein. Winning this week is not real important. You never know about matchups in playoffs-sometimes it ends up being beneficial to have a lower seed.

    I’d take the 0 to keep your league mates from getting a decent piece. I’ve done it with my TE (who I thought was valuable at that time) and I turned out okay in the aftermath.

    I’m one spot out of the final playoff spot. If I win I’m most likely in. Had a stroke of luck/genius and grabbed Austin Ekeler before Sunday’s games and now have a logjam at RB. Need to sit one of the following:

    Matt Breida
    Lamar Miller
    Dalvin Cook

    Thoughts? I’m leaning towards sitting Cook, but his big play potential is tough to pass on.

    I'd probably go Lamar here. Cleveland has a pretty poor rush defense, as they rank near the bottom in every rushing defense category. The same goes with the Seahawks, so Breida could also be a good play. If it's full PPR, I'd go Breida since he's more involved in the pass game.
