Saquon Barkley was dropped in my league. Is it worth dropping Chuba Hubbard or Darrel Williams for him for when he gets healthy?
My other RBs are James Robinson, Damien Harris and CMC (in my IR slot).
Absolutely! If you make the playoffs having Saquon Barkley could win you the league.
Hey guys, I have a question about which one of my players I should drop. I need to drop one of the following RBs I have no clue which one I should drop:
I am really having trouble figuring out which one I should drop. Zack Moss has been putting up solid numbers most weeks on one of the best offenses in the league, and has been my starting flex for a while now, but he is also largely TD dependent and has the worst ROS ranking out of all three RBs. Javonte Willians has a higher ROS ranking than Melvin Gordon, but so far through the season Melvin Gordon has been the much more productive player for fantasy purposes.
It would feel wrong dropping Javonte Williams over Melvin Gordon because of his ceiling, but it would feel wrong dropping Melvin Gordon who has been the far more productive back. Dropping Zack Moss would also feel wrong since he plays in one of the best offenses in the NFL, and has been my starting flex for the past 5 weeks.
Like I said, I have to drop one of them, but I just can't make up my mind on which one to drop. I'm leaning towards Zack Moss right now, but idk.
It's also worth to note than Brandin Cooks is another option I have to start as my flex and that I currently have David Montgomery on the IR, who will be my flex when he comes back.
ROS, would you guys stick with Waddle or is it worth picking up Parker?
Should I drop Russell Gage for Tajae Sharpe?
I've got last waiver priority and an open roster slot, how would you prioritize these pickup options?
Current RBs: Aaron Jones, Henderson, Taylor, Mitchell, Sanders, Herbert
Current WRs: Kupp, Moore, AB, Julio, Waddle, Jeudy
Kind of between Bateman and Mattison, I think Bateman could slide up into my WR3 spot, but an injured Cook would put Mattison into my RB3 slot. Or do I go for one of the others as a safe depth piece?
What is your record?
6-2, and it’s a 10 man league with 6 man playoffs so I’m basically guaranteed to be in the postseason
You should pick up Mattison then. If Cook gets hurt, having Mattison could be a league winning move, especially if one of your other starting backs is injured. None of the other players have the potential to be league winners like Mattison does.
But now that I think about it, picking up Bateman could also be smart. If you pick him up and he ends up not doing well, you could drop him in a couple weeks and potentially pick up Mattison who might still be available.
I think Mattison has by far the highest upside. At worst you can try to pawn him to the Cook owner (or just hold him and watch the Cook owner squirm).
Disclaimer - I own Cook and Mattison
8 team, .5ppr
Drop Javonte Williams for Michael Carter?
What are your other RBs? If this is a bench play I'd keep Javonte in case Melgo gets hurt, if they would slide into your RB2 or Flex right away I'd go Carter
Dalvin Cook, Najee Harris, and Elijah Mitchell. Was really only holding Javonte for potential late season upside if they start using him more but was considering Carter in the event Tray Lance or Jeff Wilson mess up Mitchell's role.
I have 2nd priority waiver and thinking of using on Michael Carter or McNichols
.75 ppr who do I choose?
Carter 100% imo. McNichols is not going to take over Henry's role.
OBJ, Cousins, Perine all droppable tbh. Depends on what the rest of your team looks like
Is Viska Shenault droppable at this point?
QBs: Rodgers, Cousins
RBs: Henderson, Ekeler
WRs: Hill, Godwin, Cooks
BE: Ruggs, Renfrow, Collins, David Johnson, Toney
Is D Johnson a drop for B Scott or McNichols? Or drop Fant for Freiermuth? Full PPR
I would drop David Johnson. Only 11 snaps last week. Probably take McNichols
Love Freiermuth in dynasty, but he's probably not going to be viable ROS when Ebron comes back. He's way better than Ebron, but until I see Ebron healthy and Freiermuth still play nearly every snap, it's tough to trust him that much in fantasy.
Should I drop Julio for Cole Beasley or Tyler Boyd ?
I'd just hold. If you're desperate for a short-term WR, you could probably trade for one cheaply. Julio has more upside than those guys if he can get healthy, especially with no Henry.
I need to drop either Michael Thomas, Derrick Henry or Calvin Ridley. Which one ?
Henry unless you are 100% playoff bound.
Henry, he’s done for the year for fantasy.
He could potentially come back during weeks 16 or 17, although this is unlikely.
Woof, neither? Aiyuk maybe just because Deebo seems a little dinged up
Drop Sterling Shepard
Add: DeVante Parker or Julio Jones?
Julio, he could potentially see more targets with Derrick Henry out.
Russell Wilson coming off an injury to his throwing hand or Derek Carr with a cake schedule ROS? Looking to back up Jalen Hurts until the benching rumors subside.
No. Knox is still hurt and wasn't getting a ton of targets even before the injury
Lost Henry in my 10 team standard
I have Eli, Patterson (who I’m currently playing at WR), Chuba, Gaskin and DJ.
Should I pick up a Titans RB? Gonna drop DJ and leaning towards AP.
I play in a 3WR league (no flex) so I’m thinking either roll with Eli/Patterson at RB and play Bateman/D Smith at WR3 and hope a Titans RB hits.
Or stick with Patterson at WR and play a Titans RB or Gaskin at RB2.
Really on the fence about it.
Currently have MT in my IR, so I could stash Henry for now until I run into further injuries.
But realistically speaking, Henry is done for the year. It’s possible he returns Week 16/17 but that would be pretty optimistic. And that’s if I even get there in the playoffs, and I’m not sure the Titans will give him a full workload in his first week or two back.
So with that said, I think I’m gonna stash him for a week or two as I’m not desperate for a bench spot at the moment, but if I need that IR spot I would be inclined to drop.
Can I just fucking drop OBJ now? I’m holding ARob one more week but OBJ has to be done. I’m facing bye hell
I would drop both of them tbh.
I dropped him last week and plan to drop ARob this week if he isn't traded
Adding a QB, who's more appealing between Taysom Hill and Carson Wentz (my other QB is Tannehill)
10 man PPR
Drop Laviska Shenault for Christian Kirk or Cole Beasley?
Need a te as hock is on bye- drop toney or Emanuel sanders?
Drop trevor lawrnce for Daniel Jones? I have no faith in Jaguars playcalling or receivers, but the Bills will demolish that pathtic defense and neccesitate a lot of passing
U guys dropping Ridley? Just want to make sure before I do it
I’m personally holding on cause I have space. If we hear more weekly then I’ll update from there. Last thing I would want is a “I’m all good now” and someone else grabs him
Someone dropped Calvin Ridley. How much FAAB should I spend on him?
10 people PPR league.
I have a QB bye this week (Tom Brady) and need to drop someone. The majority of my starting team are locked but the ones that I rotate are my 3 TEs (dealt with multiple injuries)- Kittle, Knox, and Goedert. I also have Devonta Smith who had a lackluster game. There are also Bateman and Hunt (IR)
Who should I drop out of Knox, Goedert, and Devonta Smith to pick up a QB this week?
Possible to trade one of Knox/Kittle/Goedert? Holding 3 TE's is tough. Out of those I would either trade a TE or at this point Smith/Bateman as the drop.
14 Team league .5 PPR
Should I DROP TY Hilton for either: Jeremy McNichols or Rashod Bateman?
Also, is stashing Logan Thomas on IR a good idea? I have Noah Fant who's bye week is coming up in a few weeks.
Would you rather have Nick Folk or Justin Tucker ROS?
Currently have Folk but Tucker is available on waivers due to his bye. Pro for Tucker is that his bye week is already passed plus....it's justin tucker. Folk still has his bye that I would have to deal with... however he has obviously been just so solid so far it's hard to let him go.
Justin Tucker, no question about it.
I have both Justin Herbert and Dak Prescott. Would like to trade one of them. Just having trouble deciding who to keep?
Adrian Peterson, D'ernest Johnson, Zach Moss
Adrian Peterson has by far the highest ceiling. A lot of Zack Moss's solid numbers have come from the Bills using him to run out the clock when they have big leads. He is largely TD dependent and in close games he will most likely only get ~8 carries and ~3-4 targets. I am a Zack Moss owner and I am of the belief that the production he has had so far this season isn't sustainable and that his last two performances are more indicative of what we might see from him in the future.
When it comes to AP, because the Titans other RB is more of a pass catching back, I could see AP potentially getting ~15 carries a game or more.
Moss, then Peterson.
Who is the better add, Peterson or McNichols?
Everyone says AP going to get majority of carries but unless McNichols is really just that bad at running between the tackles, I can't see that being the case. I honestly have no idea though.
Yeah. I get that. I am going for them both to replace Lindsay and Perine, but McNichols is currently my top priority.
with CMC possibly coming off of IR would you drop
12 team 0.5 PPR
My bench is giving me fits, I have a really good bench but mostly everyone is hurt, won't crack my starting lineup. I thrive off of enjoying waiver wire adds but I just can't bring myself to drop a guy.
My bench: AB, Julio, Michael Thomas, Khalil Herbert, Kittle, Calvin Ridley
I still have 71% FAAB left and want to make a move on a fill in RB (Swift on bye, JRob possibly out).
My starters are Jalen Hurts, Swift, Zeke, JRob, Diontae Johnson, Brandon Cooks, Gesicki. I would like to upgrade my WRs a bit but I'm not sure who to trade or what to do. Feels like a waste hoarding all these guys when I still have room to improve my team (WR corp mainly). What do I do?
Is Carter really worth an add? Jets are horrible but could he still have fantasy value. I would have to drop L.Murray for him.
Oh yeah. His receiving numbers are making him very valuable. RB2!
How much FAAB is AP worth?
Depends, if you are desperate, probably 50%+. If not, no more then 25%
I’m a Henry owner, should my priority add be McNichols or should I add Boston Scott for the time being?
Signs dont look good for McNichols. Guess they dont see him as an every down back. And now with the add of AP it looks like at best it will be a back by committee.
I already added Peterson since he never went on waivers. I’m screwed dude I’m in second place now let’s hope I can hang on.
It’s a keeper league so I might try to trade some future first round picks for a new RB1
I need to pick up a QB this week with Brady being on his bye. The problem is I feel like I have so much solid depth I'm just not sure who to drop to free up the spot. I could feel okay dropping some of these guys but I can't help but feel like I'm basically giving someone a free upgrade when I drop one of these guys. (full ppr)
I've spent the past 2 weeks trying to do a 2 for 1 trade to free up a spot and not feel like I'm losing too much value but no one wants to make a trade happen.
My options to drop are:
Jeudy - Higgins - Toney - Gaskin - Gesicki
I'm guessing everyone will just say "drop gaskin". I picked him up off the wire after the original owner dropped him. I can't help but think his value will go up. I honestly will never start him but I'm hoping the RB desperation that is hitting will allow me to leverage him into a deal leading up to the trade deadline....but so far no one has been desperate enough to take him.
FULL PPR 8 man
Kittle got dropped when he went on IR. Nobody’s picked him up since.
I’ve got Pitts and Gesicki already. Is he worth the pick up?
Yes he's got potential to be a consistent TE1 once he's back
8 team PPR
**Should I drop *Chubba Hubbard* for either:**
Josh Jacobs (trade)
don't drop him yet until you know CMC is actually playing
Hubbard has no trade value in my league because everyone knows he's CMC's replacement, even with a 14+fpts performance this week.
12 Team Standard
Should I drop Kadarius Toney for Calvin Ridley? I already have Kyle Pitts.
Yeah definitely don't do that.
1pt PPR. No IR.
Pick up Myles Sanders, Adrian Peterson, or OBJ?
Cole Beasley or davante Parker ? 1 pt ppr
4 pt Passing TD
My QBs: Winston, Lance
Taysom Hill v ATL
Tyrod Taylor @ MIA
Jimmy G v ARI
Justin Fields @ PIT
Mike White @ IND
I think Taylor would be the best for matchup assuming he plays.
Henry owners, is it worth holding on to him in case he does get back in time for playoffs?
I'm guessing not, unless you're guaranteed to get to the playoffs and have space
Number 1 waiver spot and im 7-1 it's a .5 PPR. Should I pick up Mcnichols or Peterson? My other RBs are Mixon, Jones, and Melvin Gordon III.
I have 1st waiver and lost Henry. Someone already managed to add AP. But i seriously do not want to burn this 1st waiver on McNichols. I snagged Boston Scott last week so i might just roll with that. I don’t see McNichols’ role increasing enough to burn top waiver
Same position with waiver #1
I have already cook, mixon, herbert, m carter, josh jacobs,
Given decent depth I thinnnnkkkk I am gonna hold I think and keep waiver #1
I'm in a 14 man league so I don't see anything that has this type of boom factor opening up again.
Hmm fair. I'm in 10 man. Maybe should pull trigger but there isn't a clear cut #1 choice so using that as my excuse
Damien Williams on CHI droppable in 12 team .5 ppr?
Drop Marvin jones for beasley or roshad bateman? He's basically a bench warmer and i'd rather put some upside on my bench
Team is slowly coming together, unfortunately can’t trust CEH as my RB3 now so I’m thinking of throwing my waiver on AP.
Other than that I’m struggling at QB and TE. Taysom is on waiver and I remember him putting up 20+ every week he played last year, but unsure how to proceed with that QB room. Then for TE I have Hunter Henry and Zach Ertz but Muth and Arnold are also sitting on Waivers
10 Team full PPR
I have Bucs D, available teams are Cardinals, Saints, Broncos, Packers
If you want to start streaming, New Orleans is probably the best.
Full PPR - Worth using a #1 waiver claim on McNichols or Peterson? I have solid RB depth
.5 PPR. With Davante Adams likely returning, I have to open up a spot to activate him from IR.
Toney, Bateman, Gronk are all at the end of my bench. Unfortunately, with Gronk on a bye, ESPN won't list him as Out, or else I'd swap him into IR.
Mattison owner dropped him on account of bye week needs.. Add him to my RB corps? 0.5 PPR. I'd have to drop one of C. Davis, Toney, or Shephard
I have CMC-Hubbard, Moss, Mckissic, and Mixon at RB.
2QB, 2RB, 2WR, 2FLEX
No FAAB left so unlikely - not for starters but with ROS in mind, should I try to pick up:
* Carter for Javonte Williams?
* Diontae Johnson for Chris Godwin?
There's also RBs like Pollard, Collins, Dillon, Mattison & ofc Peterson available, or even an alt WR pickup like Jeudy.
* My RBs are CMC / Monty / Najee / D Harris / Mitchell / Javonte William
* My WRs are Adams / Chase / Deebo / Mike Williams / Godwin
* My TEs are Waller / Goedert too (could drop the latter, but Waller still Q)
I always look at Targets usually when picking up a WR.
If Shepard is out who should I add in full PPR?
Crowder, Mooney, Parker, or Meyers?
I like Parker ROS
For a start this week? Meyers.
Rank these pickups: AP, McNichols, Jeff Wilson, Boston Scott
Swap Wilson and Scott and you got it.
Add Taysom Hill drop Wentz?
Unless you’re rostering 2 QBs and Wentz is your backup and you’re looking for potential upside I would not do it. Wentz’s numbers and been consistent and solid basically all season.
I mean Wentz has been pretty consistently solid recently regarding fantasy even if he does dumb stuff every game. Maybe hold Wentz until you’re sure Hill is playing?
Feels washy, but sure, if you want.
Taysom Hill worth an add?
Depends who you're dropping. He's probably a higher-end QB2 streamer this week and a speculative ROS add in hopes he can replicate what he did last season.
0.5 PPR, have an open roster spot and a few options. I’m 2-6 and have $31 of my FAB left.
My RBs: A. Jones, Mixon, C. Patterson, Sanders, J. Williams
My WRs: Diggs, Deebo, D. Johnson, Davis, Patrick
Probably Julio, but I wouldn't spend a ton.
After that, in this order: Gaskin, McNichols, Scott, Meyers, Parker
I have 6th of 8th waiver this week. Should I prioritize Jeremy McNichols first or Adrian Peterson first? I wanted to try and get both as a Henry owner until the situation in Tennessee shakes out.
One would think that they'll be in a timeshare, and that AP will take the "traditional" Henry early-down role and McNichols will take obvious passing downs/spell AP. I'd prioritize AP but of course try to nab both.
Dropping Hubbard to pick up Boston Scott or Jeremy McNichols, who do you guys recommend? In a full PPR
I'm making the same choice, originally I was leaning McNichols, but Scott showed a high ceiling so idk.
Yea I’m under the assumption CMC is gonna take away Hubbards value regardless, so I’m trying to move him
Oh I meant between Scott and McNichols. I don't also have Hubbard. That's also a tough call though
I would not drop Hubbard just yet. I think I would hold him over both those guys you just named. Unless you have someone else to drop I would wait and see what happens with CMC.
12 team PPR- 6 points for passing TD
Pick a QB to add for Week 9
Ryan at NO
Wentz vs NYJ (I am already starting Taylor and Pittman)
Tannehill at LAR
White at IND
Siemian vs ATL
Mayfield at CIN
Big Ben vs CHI
Garoppolo vs ARI
Fields at PIT
I think out of that list Carson has the best matchup. Although I think he uses more of the run game this week against the Jets.
Who would be your 2nd choice?
I'd say Tannehill, but I think he could be a boom or bust player this week. All he has is the passing game without Henry, so he could put up big fantasy numbers with passing, but you have to consider the three headed monster of Aaron Donald, Von Miller and Jalen Ramsey and how that will affect the pass game. If this is a 2 QB league/super flex position, I'd probably take the risk on Tannehill if that's who you're leaning towards. Wentz you know what you're going to get with 17-20 points, Tannehill could see the 20+ numbers, or could see the bust. Just depends on your risk tolerance and roster size!
Even though he’s playing the Rams?
