That’s literally how close the Russ v Lance v Hill v Huntley decision is … damn idk haha
Personally when Boone puts a picture of a guy at the top of the QB page, I’m going with that dude. Lance going to swing a lot of ships this week.
I’m going Hill. More known commodity and panthers D is ravaged by covid i think
That's so tough, I was going to tell you who I would pick and I don't know haha, Huntley because reasons
I’m going lance.
I’m leaning Lance too
He looked like a dumpster fire earlier in the season and still put up 20. He also ran 16 times which is still the most by a QB. Gotta think he’s improved some and the Texans are god awful against the run.
Go with your gut this week folks. Don’t overthink this.
Did you say go with folk?
I would do that. Pitt offense is a dumpster fire.
I actually really like najee this week in Ben's final game. I can see 8 to 10 targets.
Wow, he's very high on David Montgomery this week.
I feel good and bad for having Monty in two championship games. Good because Justin ranks him even higher than consensus, bad because he could end up THE week 17 disappointment.
Lol I'm starting him in one and playing against him in the other. Same with Jamarr Chase, Tampa Bay Defense, Mahomes, and Kamara. Every play is about to be simultaneously good and bad for me
Haha I know the feeling. I face JT and cook in one and have JT and cook in other. Same with waddle.
If it comforts anyone, boone had been consistently accurate in the fantasypros rankings competition
Oh yeah he's good. He's my favorite analyst. Listen to every pod and read every article. In 4 championships, won 1 last week. Only rankings I'll look at.
Which pod is that, if you don’t mind sharing?
[This one would be my guess. ](https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/thescore-fantasy-football-podcast-with-justin-boone/id1426560594)
That is correct. I wish he did a daily/hour long pod. His are 20-30 min.
Yea I’m very interested
His pod is called the Score Fantasy Football Podcast.
Guess I’ll go Swift over Aaron Jones after all
tough call. you must have a very good rb and flex already in.
Chubb, Mixon, Michel, Jones and Swift. Can only play 4.
tough, youre def starting mixon and chubb... good luck.
I’m in this same exact spot. Fuckkkkk lol. I need ceiling plays though
I think I’m going to go RoJo over Swift in Standard. I think either way it’s a good play but the risk is a little less with RoJo
EDIT: oh Aaron Jones
Oh my bad. Added Aaron for clarity. Tough call either way !
First analyst I’ve seen that has Michel ranked higher than Justin Jefferson this week. I have been leaning that way after the cousins news and now have my validation
I feel much better now that Zeke is back ahead of Penny lol
Where do you all think Edmonds should be ranked if Conner doesn't go?
Top 15 option
Interesting that the Eagles are rated fairly low. I can definitely see it - the just played Was two weeks ago and weren't awesome. But no Gibson this time
2 RB, 2WR, 2 FLEX:
Sony, swift, AJones, Mitchell, Tyreek, AB, waddle, Higgins, SunGod
This list just made it harder lol
This doesn’t make my Mike Williams or Van Jefferson decision easier
Van Jefferson 100%
man thats a tough one.
I'm in same boat, going with VJ and hoping for the best, seems like he has more big play potential vs Baltimore than Williams does against Denver who he did nothing against earlier this year.
Really tilting on rhamondre vs James Conner
Rhamondre is active and could get 15+ carries pretty easily
James Conner is unlikely to play right?
That’s how it’s looking and the logic I’m thinking too
Good luck corn
So many people are high on Saints DST this week. Should I play them over the 49ers?
I would. The Texans are sneaky good at scoring on offense which lowers opposing D/ST upside
Panthers implied total is 15.5, yuck.
Didn't expect Evans to be this high, I was going either Mooney or Landry in half ppr but he's got Evans basically a whole tier higher...ugh.
according to evans' yahoo page-
Today, 8:41 am
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Mike Evans (hamstring) is "expected to play in a limited capacity" in Week 17 against the Jets.
we already know he could come out of the game at any point with the hamstring injury, and now they are saying he is only expected to play a limited amount before the game even starts. Plus its against the jets, and brady will be trying to get AB his incentives. With that said, Evans could go 2/2 for 11 yards and 2 TD's
I’m really uncertain about AB. I have waddle or Higgins, doesn’t AB also have next week for incentives?
Fuck. I have rhamondre in but he's got Patterson and burkhead ahead of him and I have both. The idea of the pats jumping out big and giving Damien's hamstring some rest is too tantalizing.
I’m thinking of rolling out Stevenson over Patterson and Ogunbowale.
I’m stuck between Ogunbowale and Burkhead for the flex spot
Same. Idk what to do
Same going burkhead mainly for the matchup
fucking cool, im vs #1 QB/ #1/3 WR, #5/9 RB
Anyone not starting Dallas D? I’m so scared to put Chicago in
think i’m starting saints defense over them in 2 leagues. my other league my team is much weaker and i’ll be starting dallas for the upside.
I am going Saints as well. Unless my opponents team balls out and I need the upside of Dallas (all but 2 of his players are the early games).
Yep, picked up the saints this morning to play over dallas
I dropped Dallas D this morning to stop me from tinkering. Bears it is
I would go Chicago. I can’t decide between bears and bills
I have Dallas, Miami, and GB
I think I'm going with Green Bay. Sorry if it doesn't help your Bears question lol
Im still deciding between Dallas, Chicago and Indy
I’m literally having the same decision. Also going up against Murray, Edmonds, and Ertz so I’m scared to put up Dallas D. Think im gonna ride with Chicago cause the giants are projected by Vegas to put up 14 points, and the cardinals are projected to put up 22. That being said, cowboys are the higher upside play for sure cause they’re turnover hawks.
I’m rolling Dallas D. Arizona hasn’t looked great, and they got momentum. All it takes is a pick 6 or fumble recovery for TD
Yeah, I was pretty wrong with my take on this. I'm up by 9.5 with both IDPs left...his tonight, mine tomorrow night and I'm feeling pretty okay that I didn't get burned by my choice here. Hope you had the same kind of luck....and the dude I beat last week by a point because of the Dallas defense who had the cyborg auto pick team is projected to score 60+ points more than me this week. HAAAAA!
Have the same dilemma- going bears. It’s 50/50 and the cowboys got me here, but the giants offense is just so inept. And the bears are getting akiem hicks back
Similar position. Deciding between cowboys and rams. Currently have Dallas in.
I dropped Dal to backup dif position....rolling Bears
I got either Dallas or Miami, thinking of keeping Dallas in?
My brain tells me to go with 9ers against Texans but my gut tells me Dallas. I’m pretty heavily favoured so leaning 9ers for the floor.
I’m going CHI over DAL, but partly because I prefer a floor play.
I'm not. Playing Tampa instead - been holding both forever basically to play Tampa today.
Im still deciding between Dallas, Chicago and Indy
Feels weird starting Chicago
I’m choosing between Dallas and Indy. I don’t see how you sit Dallas honestly. They are the #1 fantasy D and fantasy scoring doesn’t really rely on points/yards allowed. It’s about turnovers and big plays.
Yep exactly. Just tough bc kyler could turn it on.
Well I decided bills over cowboys dst this week, the matchup seems like a safer floor but potentially lower ceiling. Kyler also runs a lot so not as many int opportunities
I can't do it. Starting Indy.
The bears are going to fire Nagy and the their defense isn't good anyway. It's movable force vs stoppable object.
U had the same 3 to choose from?
Indy, Chicago, and Eagles
Eagles for sure
this makes my packers vs bears decision harder
Would anyone play RoJo over Najee?…
I’m playing Rojo and Sony over Najee. Steelers offense is so, so bad
Still flipping between Michael Carter, Devonta Smith and Ertz in my PPR
And Elijah Mitchell over both of them with Trey Lance existing?
This mf really put Zeke and Mitchell back to back in his rankings when I was really hoping he'd give me direction lmao.
This had made my Dare vs Sutton decision (so gross) so much harder. I just know this is going to decide my matchup
Been stressing over picking 3 out of Chubb/Swift/Rojo/Michel…. Obviously Chubb for one but this list the other three ranking in order.
Man Ive read every scrap I can this week on Swift, and still don't feel like hes a smash spot. I think him having a boom game is entirely possible, but at the end of the day we simply don't know what were going to get like you said. Guys like Rojo/Michel, we know exactly what were going to get usage-wise. Im with ya. It doesn't feel right, I named my team after Swift, but I think this makes the most sense.
embarrassment of riches over here. im def going chubb and swift... give me michel and sit rojo. good luck.
Pretty crazy this guy has the option to sit a top 7 ranked RB
12 team too, and a month ago I didnt have shit at RB lol. Swift was the only one I drafted. I lucked into Michel, I was going to drop him 3 weeks ago but I had an injury that kept him on. I only got Rojo because I made sure I had top waiver for start of playoffs. Had to trade for Chubb because I literally had nothing. Crazy how much all that changed come playoff time
Still need to decide Harris or Mitchell. Both banged up uhg
You guys aren't starting Singletary over Damien Harris are you?
Bears or bills?
He has Hurts over Rodgers too. Interesting.
Not sure I wanna play lockett over st brown
The Boone speaks! Starting Swift over Mitchell in RB and Diontae over Mitchell in flex for PPR and feel good now! Good luck everyone
Dang he has josh jacobs ranked so much higher than penny in .5ppr
My friend says I should still play Tyreek Hill over Deebo and Najee over Kamara
love how my flex options are bunched together lol. ogunbawale and foreman back to back with patterson and berrios right under them.
Damn. Do I take Justin Jefferson out and plug in Aaron Jones?
I’m Debating this exact thing. Right now I have Jefferson but idk. I could also bench Diontae and play them both. Tough.
In between taysom and Huntley…and tanny or Huntley
I’m playing Taysom and Lance over Tanehill
I think that’s what I’m shouting for in my other league. But in my sf I have Huntley and tanny idk who to choose from.
and I'm playing Taysom over Lance
For some reason QB full PPR rankings are unavailable when I open this article (?)
just click on the qb half ppr rankings. ppr doesnt effect qb rankings. same applies for k and def.
Qb rankings are under half ppr
Dj Moore or Jordan Howard?
Moore. He has been getting 10+ targets and Howard has too many unknowns off injury.
Lol still no idea between Hunter Henry and muth
Same boat but I went with Everett instead of them
Same here. Was going muth, now I’m not sure
Still conflicted between Green Bay and New Orleans. Any insight?
I assume you’re referring to D/ST. I would play Green Bay
Damn should I start Knox over pitts?ppr
Swift over Williams of KC? Man….
Have Colts Packers and Bears.
Can't decide. He has bears over Packers but with the cold and Mannion I am thinking Packers are better based on how they have done all year at home.
I would play packers there too.
Vikings are gonna be playing extra "safe" tonight so I doubt you'd get many TO points from GB. Maybe get low PA points if anything.
Unless green bay gets out to an early lead
Howard above Scott even dealing with the stinger?
He seems pretty low on the 49ers.
I currently have them in over the Saints and the Packers.. Am I crazy?
Also wondering why the disparity between him and Subverta on the 9ers. Makes me hesitant..
I always trust sub on the defenses.
Needed that reassurance! Would you go 9ers over Packers?
I would. Only because sub says too. I’m rolling with 9ers.
I have 49ers but I am starting the Bears.
I think Texans are not that bad. They can and will score trash points if they get blown out.
For example when the Rams played Texans, the rams defense fantasy points were 15+ heading into the 4th quarter. Then came the trash points from the Texans and Rams DEF ended at 7 pts.
Damm jefferson and chase neck to neck. Who would you guys roll with?
I've got Jefferson in, mostly so I can stare at the evening game and regret the decision later.
Love going against the Kupp Adams Najae Allen Knox manager and having your JJ lose Cousins.
I have to choose 2 between Penny/Swift/Mitchell/Harris and I have no fucking clue. Expert ranks seem all over the place on them
Michel vs Baltimore
Penny vs Detroit
PPR Gotta Pick 2:
Brandon Cooks @SF
Javonte Williams @LAC
Darrel Williams @CIN
Renfrow vs Gronk? Rankings suggest Renfrow but I’m worried about matchups. Feel like Renfrow will be covered well and Gronk will feast.
Boone has Lockett ranked higher.
Fitzmaurice has odell beckham ranked higher.
I have been back and forth for the past three days with these two.
I'd go Rojo & Michel
Having some difficulties choosing my final lineup (PPR)
WR & Flex: (Pick 3) Justin Jefferson, Tee Higgins, AB, Brandin Cooks, Damien Harris.
I'm so torn between JJ and Harris as well
Ugh so torn on Buffalo or New Orleans def
Swift moved up at least 10 spots
Still can’t settle on the best 2 flexes from Lazard, freeman, Vaughan and gabe Davis. There’s weather to deal with and don’t know if E. Sanders is playing. Someone please help me
Sigh. I have Colts and Miami, and then Damien Harris and Josh Jacobs. I have Colts and Harris in, but this is telling me to go Jacobs over Harris. And I don’t like the idea of starting Colts D against Jacobs.
Same boat, starting JT, colt defense, and D Harris over Jacobs
Moreau or Higbee?
Aiyuk seems high. Can I truly trust him this week?
Anyone else playing Aiyuk? If not, who are you using instead? I’m currently debating swapping him out for Gabe Davis or Robby Anderson. Haven’t seen any news on Sanders to help with the Gabe decision, and, uh, weather.
Debating Aiyuk, berrios, and MVS in half ppr
I think that’s Aiyuk there. MVS tough to trust in what’s likely a non competitive cold weather game.
Im debating Aiyuk vs. J. Howard or B. Scott. I think I'd go with G. Davis if I were you but that's close.
I’m playing Pittman and Mike Williams over Aiyuk.
Still going to be between Carter, Pittman and Dillon or my flex all day.
So Sonny over Williams? I've been stressing all week about this. Was set on Williams till I saw this.
Who is everyone benching Javonte Williams for?
Welp, all the rankings have me even more unsure. RoJo is locked in for me, but I'm having a hard time deciding between Mitchell, Singletary and D.Williams.
Flex is already taken by AJ Brown.
Jefferson is very low. Would you play AJ Dillon or OBJ over Jefferson with the back up QB and weather concerns?
My gut says penny over Rojo and Swift but swift just got upgraded and Rojo got downgraded a little...
Ughhh I have Rojo, Sony, Mixon and Najee and they’re all bunched together in .5 PPR. Know I’m gonna leave the one who truly pops on my bench
Start 3 RBs:
eckler, najee, Damien Harris, C Paterson, and Sony. Tough one for me.
i’m torn between lamb and waddle. i’m leaning waddle but i’m not sure especially after seeing this
Well I just picked up Lance to sub in for Wilson ...
The team im playing against is far better. Gotta go big or go home. Watch Wilson have his best game of the year lol.
JJ still too high.
Curious. Where would you rank him?
Wow Swift over Diontae. I’ve heard it the other way all week. Idk if I want to make the swap now
Feel like this is a common decision for championship week, but (in PPR) Moreau, Muth, or Henry?
Opponent and I have 10 of the top 35 flex players according to this list. No idea what to think but I’m ready to be let down
The Mitchell vs Penny decision is killing me
Need to pick 2 of Swift, RoJo, Michel and they’re all right next to each other. Great
Bench swift for me. When in doubt go with the good offenses and fade the lions
His confidence in AJ Dillon has me more confident in tentatively starting Dillon over Ogunbowale, J. Patterson, and B. Scott.
D Foreman vs R Stevenson is hard for me to choose. So is Mike Evans vs Lazard. I could also throw B Scott in somewhere.
Still can’t make up my mind between JJeff or Darrell Williams
I’ve been debating between Kamara and Michel while having Mixon locked in, but his rankings have Mixon lowest of the 3. What on earth am I supposed to do now lol.
