    For Jackson? I would, he's like an RB1 and a QB1. Henry and Kelce almost a wash.

    I have to decide between Hyde and Miles Sanders in the flex this week. I play standard.

    I think I'm going to go with Miles Sanders... I think he has been trending up and I think the Eagles will be down which is good for Sanders as more of the pass catching back compared to Howard and I think he can have some success against the Pats. I think game script with favor Sanders. Howard appears to be at least a little banged up.

    Hyde meanwhile, while a starting RB is in a tough match up with Baltimore and his usage compared to Duke Johnson has been slipping... I also think game script will not favor Hyde here. I expect the Texans to be down and throwing.

    What do you guys think?

    I really like Miles Sanders and think he can have success running against the Patriots. But BAL has given up 7 top 24 RB games while NE has only given up 1. And since you are saying standard I'd tend to lean even more to Hyde, since Sanders has been used more as a pass receiver than runner (up to this week). NE has only averaged 0.6 TDs/game allowed while BAL has allowed 1.0/game.

    Hopefully you went with Hyde, even though he (and the Texans) didn't do much, at least he he did scored.

    Ha. I went with Sanders once I found out Howard was inactive. Hyde broke one for a 41 yard TD but outside of that I think he got like 20 yard? It's fantasy. You never know whats going to happen. You just have to make your best educated guess.

    Need 12 from Kelce tonight.

    Josh Allen at Dallas Thursday or Wentz at Miami Sunday?


    I feel like Dallas will be chomping at the bit on a short week, and they're due. I feel like Allen is due for a bad game. I feel like Wentz has been terrible. He's due for a good he, and this may be it. I feel like Wentz's floor is a tad lower, but I think his ceiling is tons higher than Allen's this week.


    Yay or nay?

    Yikes. Auden Tate if he starts. Those RB options are rough. Probably go Hyde if I had to pick a RB.

    Geez... lost by 0.5 pts and eliminated from playoffs. Almost every player on my team (other than Aaron Jones) under-performed. All I needed was one more reception from Carson last night. But the worst call... going with the Texans DST against the Broncos at home.

    Wow... every ranking has them one right after another. Both go against equally weak defenses. Since one is a NE RB I'd suggest Hunt, since NE should be up big and doubt they will need to pass as much, but that's what I thought last week (hence went with Michel... big mistake). But truthfully its splitting hairs.

    Reckon the good news is your RB1 and RB2 must be pretty good when these are your Flex choices.

    I would keep the roster as is. Wentz has only two TEs to throw to. CMC is as must start as there is (after Lamar) and even though SF's defense has had a few injuries I would still prefer going against ARI with Hunt. Rather go to war with Mahomes and Kelce than Carr and Waller. And CAR (other than CMC and DJ Moore) is a mess. And I am even worried about DJ Moore. The one position I would be a bit worried about is Singletary. PIT is really tough and BUF brings Gore in when they get close to the goal line.

    Thanks homie, was tempted to take Singletary out of FLEX spot since tougher matchup + maybe put my TE #2 Waller @ FLEX.
