    Ezekial Elliot is out. Do I play Tony Pollard or Jeff Wilson? This is to go to the championship

    I have the same situation, I’m going with Cooks, he’s due for a game IMO

    Wow... crazy week. The question, start Hurts or Brees. We are seeing that Hurts was the right call. Congrats to anyone that went that way. The Cooks or Coutee... well, Coutee had the TD. Also the game ending fumble. But I was wrong, Coutee was the correct play. Wilson scored a short TD, but Pollard got two TDs, and way more yards.

    Unfortunately for me... I played Bowden over Ahmed. Ahmed had the TD and 110+ yards.

    Alright, its championship week. I've never won my own league that I commish and this is year 9 lol. Made the finals multiple times but never won, so I'll take any thought I can get haha. I feel comfortable with the options I have at least.

    12 team .5 ppr btw

    Locked in already: Kicker (Koo), Defense (Cleveland), RBs (Aaron Jones and whoever starts for Dallas, Elliot/Pollard) and WRs (Ridley, Godwin, Cooks)

    Bigger Questions

    Quarterback:
    Deshaun vs CIN
    Aaron Rogers vs TEN

    Tight End:
    Austin Hooper @ NYJ
    Mike Gesicki @ LV

    Flex: BIGGEST QUESTION
    Jeff Wilson @ Ari
    TY Hilton @ Pit
    Keke Coutee vs Cin
    John Brown @ NE

    I'd start Jeff Wilson. In fact, I am starting Jeff Wilson (over McKissic). Good luck!

    Happy it worked for you and hopefully you won your championship. While starting Wilson worked for me... sitting McKissic and starting Dal Cook and Austin Ekeler turns out to have been the wrong move for me (I know, who would sit those two?).

    Just joined my first Dynasty SF/TE league and have 1.01 that I planned to use on Mahomes. Received a trade offer: his 1.06, his 2.07, and his 11.06 in 2021 for my 1.01, my 5.01, and my 9.01. Guessing it means dropping down to get maybe Josh Allen or Herbert or a RB1. Any advice would be appreciated... no clue about Dynasty.

    so i drafted the TE pitts...thinking since ATL D sucks...that they'd be playing catch up most games...didn't realize their O was so terrible as well. forgive me, been out of the fantasy game for a few years.

    should i be looking at getting rid of him and finding someone else. just seems he's underperformed all year. assuming he's just seeing double teams so hes taken out of the equation for matty ice.

    I would hold for now. Decent target share.

    I agree with @Astrodome . He is not only getting good target share but he is also lining up all over the field (split out as well as in line) so ATL is trying to get him mismatches and room to operate. The opportunities are definitely there. The biggest problem is more the offense and Matt Ryan, and hopefully last week was a positive sign.

    btw, Ridley is also struggling but there is positive regression coming with him. If anything I would be trying to trade for Pitts (and especially Ridley). AT some point the teams will pay more attention to Patterson and Pitts (and Ridley) will both ramp up.

    btw, I drafted Pitts in the fourth round of my Scott Fish Bowl league. So yea, I made a big investment, but SFB uses a TE premium, and overall TE is such a wasteland that if you didn't draft Kelce or Waller you are a big disadvantage so the next tier (Kittle, Hock, Pitts, Andrews, maybe Fant) you are basically throwing darts at volatile production.

    Sorry, I just saw this. But I think the correct answer (unless injured) will always be Kareem Hunt. Unless Edmonds is hurt, Conner is simply a goal line back. So he may get a TD or two, but Hunt will have a bigger part of the Browns offense and CLV prioritizes the running game.

    The other RBs in CLE are D'Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton. Johnson is more a NFL sized RB but kinda slow and would likely get the start. Felton is small, and has played a bit of WR along with RB. Its likely he would play obvious third down passing situations. In many leagues both have been picked up already, and to be honest, if not there are probably other RB alternatives that may make more sense. Like Rashaad Penny in SEA... Carson is out, Collins got hurt, and Penny is coming off IR this week.

    Conner would also seem a reasonable alternative... he gets all the goal line chances and outplayed Edmonds (who for some reason doesn't get played much in ARI).
