    I wouldn't do it unless the next few weeks are must wins for you. Fournette could yield a better package IMO

    I was thinking the same. I'm targeting Tom Brady and TY Hilton with a package centered around Melvin Gordon.

    I feel like that would be a bigger upgrade than just Matt Ryan.

    This would be a much better return, but t be honest, I'd still prefer to nang onto Fournette though... I am not sure getting either Goff or Siemian wouldn't be good enough for you until Mariota returns. Goff has a tough stretch, so I'd look more at Siemian, who gets the Giants trainwreck this week, the Chargers, then KC, then a great stretch through the playoffs.

    Thanks for the confirmation guys, I was thinking about the same track as you both.

    Big Ben is a POS btw.

    Well I don't hate it because your WR situation seems poor, but I also think it may leave you slightly weak at RB. Don't really trust Thompson as a legit starter going forward but with the injuries they are dealing with he could remain in a bigger role.

    I say its a decent deal. Somebody is gonna get better.

    I've been rolling with Fuller the last few weeks and it's paid off. I suggest you do the same.

    For this week (and tonight) who would you go with at flex? Non-ppr

    Funchess, McCaffrey, Ingram

    Going forward, would you prefer Ingram or Kamara?

    depends what league.

    ingram is more valuable in standard.

    kamara is much more valuable in ppr

    @moestavern19 who should I use in the flex to beat your shitty team, hobbled Diggs or McKinnon?

    I have Rob Kelley who will be most likely out this week. I have Perine as handcuff, the question is:

    Perine or Riddick?

    And the Snead owner in our league just dropped to add a TE (Dickson). Another owner dropped Sterling Shepard. Dang... already have 5 WRs...

    Perine should have an easy matchup but I have a hunch that Thompson gets more play. Riddick against NO should be a good play if they get into a shootout.

    49er's defense is swiss cheese against the run though, there should be plenty of carries for both he and Thompson. Jay Gruden basically said Perine will get all the carries. I think game script will lead to Perine getting 20+ carries.

    I have gone back and forth about my Flex decision tonight (Jeffery or Benjamin) I am going to toss out a different WDIS... Jordan Reed versus SF or Austin Sefarian-Jenkins versus NE?

    Since I am starting Watson over Cousins, Perine having a huge running game would help me not get upset if Cousins has a 300 yard game and Watson comes back to earth. ;)

    Time to scoop up McFadden / Morris. Looks like Zeke will serve his 6 games starting next week.

    He was snapped up 30 minutes ago. Does Morris have much value? he is still there, but thought DMC was getting most of the work? And what happens if/when Zeke side files another injunction?


    The Watkins owner just dropped Watkins for Jermaine Kearse. Same owner has Amari Cooper. And Shady. he's 0-5.
