    Brees @ BAL or Mayfield @ TB

    Am I crazy to consider starting Baker Mayfield over Drew Brees this week? They have polar opposite matchups - Brees is facing #1 ranked Ravens D, Mayfield is playing the 32nd ranked Bucs. Brees historically doesn't do as well on the road. Mayfield let me down last week but I'm seriously considering giving him another chance this week.

    I wouldn't. I don't think it's that crazy, but I still wouldn't. I don't really like the receivers the Browns have. I do like Njoku ROS, though.

    Rodgers is my QB. This is his bye week.
    I have Alex Smith as my "backup" but I'm wondering if I should drop him for Matthew Stafford?

    What do you think? Keep Smith? or pick up Stafford?

    If I were in your position I would pick up Stafford. Alex Smith is not doing much this year and the Detroit offense is really getting things cranking. Their improved running game with Kerryon Johnson is opening up the passing game for Stafford.

    Honestly man, I would still start Brees despite his matchup. The Saints have sooo many weapons that Brees is bound to get his points. The issue that I have with Mayfield is that his floor is so low and his ceiling really isn't that high, in my opinion. Brees has both a very high ceiling and a very high floor. Even if he's not throwing touchdowns, he's not throwing picks (he's yet to throw an interception). I feel like starting Mayfield over Brees would be over-thinking your roster.

    Oh man, that's solid. I love double-dipping like that with a QB/RB/WR. I'm running Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara now (I had Lutz too, but I dropped him on his bye and couldn't get him back). It was the perfect set-up. Thomas is the most reliable WR on that team, and Kamara was the go-to for the first 4 weeks. So when they were in the red zone it was almost guaranteed that I'd get points out of it somewhere. Whether they rushed Kamara, threw to Thomas, or Lutz had to kick the FG.

    Is Tarik coming around as worth a start? I’ve got him and Howard handcuffed and am wondering if Cohen is worth starting in a flex spot?

    I'm last minute this week but need your help.

    Non PPR need 1 rb between and a flex

    D Johnson
    M Ingram
    J Howard

    Then a flex between remaining RBs and Edleman

    I was going with Johnson and Edleman. I know Johnson hasn't lit the world on fire this year, but Howard's touches have been going down, and Ingram will split touches against a very good run defense. So I think Johnson and Edleman are my safest floors. Thoughts?

    Do you guys think I should go with Demaryius Thomas or Christian Kirk for Thursday night football? League is .5 PPR

    I’m leaning toward Kirk tonight. I’ve been disappointed by Thomas this year and last year and Kirk is starting to break out.

    Asterisked

    Who are your other options? If it's PPR, Cohen should probably be in.

    Johnson and Edelman

    Kirk. Fitz will see a lot of Chris Harris tonight, so I think Kirk is a decent play.

    For my flex I could play Sanu, Breida, Sheppard, Albert Morris or Ekeler.

    I'd go Shepard even though Eli is terrible.

    .5 PPR

    Pick a QB:

    Carson Wentz vs Car
    Matt Stafford at Mia

    Pick a WR:
    Michael Crabtree vs NO
    Demaryius Thomas at Ari
    Corey Davis at LAC
    Keelan Cole vs Hou

    Pick a flex:

    LeSean McCoy at Ind
    Marlon Mack vs Buf
    One of the WR above

    I'm thinking Wentz, Crabtree and McCoy, but Thomas is always tempting.

    .5 PPR

    Pick a QB:

    Andy Dalton at KC
    Matt Stafford at Mia

    Pick three WR:
    Michael Crabtree vs NO
    Demaryius Thomas at Ari
    DeSean Jackson vs Cle
    Sammy Watkins vs Cin
    Keelan Cole vs Hou

    Pick a RB:
    Jordan Howard vs NE
    Tarik Cohen vs NE
    Duke Johnson Jr at TB
    Peyton Barber vs Cle

    Pick a flex from the remaining RB and WR above.

    Currently leaning towards Dalton, Crabtree, Thomas, Jackson, Howard and Cohen. Feeling a little uneasy about starting both Howard and Cohen, but I'm not really in love with my other options this week.

    This week I got Brown and Carson on bye so it’s really tough.

    Dudes take QBs like nobody’s business early in that league. Some even reach for them early. Idc if it’s FOMO or stupidity or both. Guys were even takin backups. I got AB, Allen and Thielen with my first 3 picks. But was stuck with Carr and Mariota at QB.

    You start 1 RB 1 WR 2 Flex. TEs are considered WRs since there’s not 16 quality ones.

    Yeah that’s my thought. Kirk is emerging as the #1 right now anyway, and Thomas is very TD dependent this year. Sanders is clearly the #1WR in the offense

    For my TE:

    A returning Evan Engram (healthy, against a crappy Falcons D, on garbage offense)
    or
    Greg Olsen (better TE, pretty banged up, against a tougher Eagle D)
