    1. Start Wallace against Cleveland. You should start anybody against that defense.
    2. I would start Gordon over Blount. Patriots RBs are streaky enough to be flex plays.
    3. As for the flex, I'd start Blount over those two options.

    Was just offered Kelvin Benjamin/Fleener for Eze Elliot. Thoughts?

    I have Cooper/Marshall/Moncrief/Michael Thomas/Diggs as my WR's.

    RBs = Matthews/Elliot/Forsett

    Already weak for RB's and I'd be down to 2 backs. Leaning towards a no.

    Team:

    QB - Andy Dalton
    RB - Matt Forte
    RB - Devonta Freeman
    WR - Michael Floyd
    WR - DeAndre Hopkins
    TE - Julius Thomas
    W/R - Demarco Murray
    K - Gostkowski
    Def - Patriots

    Bench:
    CJ Anderson - RB
    Frank Gore - RB
    Matt Jones - RB
    Spencer Ware - RB (Just got him through waiver wire) - Dropped Jared Cook TE for him.
    Victor Cruz - WR
    Josh Gordon - WR

    Should I add CJ Anderson to the starting line up, if so, who should I bench? Devonta Freeman?

    I have Rivers @ Qb and now that he's lost Allen, should I drop him for another qb? Best options are Mariota and Ryan.

    I was/am in same situation... made worse by having Allen as my WR1 drafted in second round. I also have Rivers and Mariota and in fact, I am flipping them and starting Mariota with hope he rebounds against a weaker defense. I saw a stat that said Rivers' fantasy scoring dropped from 21pts/game with Allen to 14pts/game without last year. SD probably has better WRs this year, and better RBs too, so maybe he doesn't decline as much. He scored less than Mariota last week, and Stafford lit up DET last week, so taking the chance and seeing how Rivers does with Benjamin, Williams, Inman, Gates, and Woodhead.

    Forgot to mention Ryan. Both Julio Jones and Mohammed Sanu are both dinged up.

    I just made a trade and I'm instantly starting to regret it a bit.

    Gave up Forsett for Eifert.

    .5 PPR league

    Current line-up:
    QB - Brees
    RB - AP
    RB - D. Murray
    WR - A. Jeffery
    WR - A. Cooper
    TE - Graham
    FLEX - Maclin

    Bench : Foster, Josh Gordon, Jared Cook, T. Austin, Cutler

    My depth at RB is absolutely garbage, but Graham has been awful.
    Anyone like the trade?

    Maybe go flex with one of them?

    RB 1 Demarco Murray
    RB 2 Langford

    Flex Ryan Matthews

    Bench. Adrian Peterson

    Yes, do that immediately. Freeman is mired in a timeshare with Tevin Coleman and CJA is the clear lead back in a run-heavy offense.

    Big Ben vs CIN or Bortles @ SD

    I think the Bengals are still banged up in the secondary so Ben might be the safer option. San Diego has a shutdown corner in Verrett and Jacksonville doesn't run the ball very well with Yeldon. I think Bortles will throw a lot more depending on if Ivory plays or not.

    Standard. Who should I start at Flex: Tyrell Williams (vs JAC), Melvin Gordon (also vs JAC), or Dwayne Allen (vs DEN)?

    I am starting (WRs) Wallace vs CLE and Shepard vs NO (sitting Lockett vs LAR), and (RBs) Miller vs KC and Blount vs MIA.

    Need to start 3 of the following for a PPR league:

    Todd Gurley vs SEA
    Rashad Jennings vs NO
    Danny Woodhead vs JAX
    LeSean McCoy vs NYJ
    Frank Gore @ DEN

    Definitely start anyone you can versus New Orleans. With Keenan Allen out SD seems to use Woodhead a lot both on the ground and in the air. I'd skip Gore against DEN. Not that much difference between Gurley and McCoy I think.

    Melvin Gordon scored 2 TDs last week but he was outsnapped by Woodhead something like 2:1. Opportunity just isn't there. Jacksonville is pretty stout against teams that run well to begin with. San Diego does not run well.

    However, Williams and Allen are both marginal options at best. Since it is a standard league I might lean toward Allen as he has the most likely TD probability.

    In a 10 man standard league with the Waiver Wire priority set at reverse order of the standings. Is it wise to tank the first couple of weeks to get all the WW priorities pick up?

    Just thought about doing that because if it's set at reverse order, there's no reset in WW priority and you can pick up and drop who you want at that priority order. Any suggestions or inputs?

    Also, pick 2 RB of: Gurley, R.Mathews, Rawls, Duke J, and C-Mike

    Leaning towards Mathews and Rawls this week. After hearing all these chatters of Rawls upping volumes, I think this is the right move. Correct?

    I think they will both still split carries, but it looks like Rawls will be starting this week and therefore has the edge.

    I unloaded Gordon for Jeremy Maclin for this very reason. The 2 TDs feel more like an abnormality than anything else.

    Thanks Moes. I was thinking its too early to put Williams in there until a game or two to see how the target mix shakes out at SD?

    I know I am weak at WR, hence thinking of trading Allen for a WR like Fuller, Snead, Marvin Jones, or Diggs. They are pairs of bench receivers on two teams in need of a TE (one with Ertz).
