  1. Standard scoring

    Pick 1 WR, and then to 1 Flex

    Tyler Boyd vs ARI
    Adam Thielen @ NYG
    LeSean McCoy vs IND
    Marlon Mack @ KC

    1. Boyd and Thielen.

  2. 12 team standard, I’m 3-1 thanks to you guys! Dalton is on the wire, is he worth a stream this weekend over Wentz? I’d drop D. Jones

    1. Personally, I would not. I did the same with Danny Dimes last week and it was a wash. Don’t put too much thought into your qb especially when you are winning.

      1. Thanks bro, yeah I’m just gonna roll with Wentz.

  3. Is there going to be a rankings update before tomorrow morning?

  4. NEEED a defense update!

    Had Titans but Allen is back playing for Buffalo. Can snatch the 9ers vs the Browns, Ravens vs Steelers or Panthers vs Jags

  5. Alright Hustle Like Russell needs some help, guys. I’ve hit a WR injury wall. I have both Davante Adams and Christian Kirk both out this week (not to mention Brandin Cooks possibly out next week with a concussion). Sitting at 2-2, my FLEX is a bit complicated.

    I’ve got Jamison Crowder, John Brown, or possibly using Darren Waller at TE and Austin Hooper in the Flex. We have an IR slot, should dropping Hunter Henry and sliding Adams in the IR and picking up Auden Tate a good move, even if I don’t start him? Thanks, fellas.

    1. Forgot to mention it was a PPR league.

      1. three TE’s??? that’s two too many…
        hunter henry, despite his talent, his career says he isn’t worth rostering IMHO…
        2016 – 36 catches / 2017 – 45- catches / 2018 – ZERO, missed the entire season and now he is injured again? no thank you.

        drop h.henry, slide d.adams into the IR slot.

        i’d start j.crowder…PHI D is weak against the pass.

        *caution LONDON game alert* check their weather too.
        despite London, i still like d.waller…he leads his team in targets, plays more snaps than a.hooper, has more targets than j.brown, chicago D has been average against TEs, and buffalo D is last in league in fantasy points surrendered to TE, number 32…that’s a bad matchup.

        1. **correction on HOOPER – they don’t face BUFFALO D, sorry…**
          no idea what i was looking at…they face HOUSTON D this weak…still solid though against TEs.

          1. Post By Bomis_Hawg

            Thanks for the input. I picked up Henry just to put on my IR after he was dropped just to see what would come of his return. The get assets to flip them mentality. Plus, I’ve been trying to deal Hooper with no success.

    Full point Ppr Chris Thompson or frank gore

    1. washington, a dumpster fire, plays NEW ENGLAND…start frank gore.
      sure, he isn’t an ideal PPR RB but he should outscore c.thompson this week.

  7. Team name: Belichick Yourself Record: 3-1… I need to pickup a kicker. Who to drop Devin Singletary or Jaylen Samuels? I have 2 QBs right now in Dak and Jameis but I feel better about Jameis specifically this week. Help a brother por favor
