Austin Ekeler Week 1 Start/Sit

1/2 point PPR. Rolling with James Connor, Devonta Freeman, and Chris Carson as 2Rbs + Flex, is Ekeler a better play than any of these 3? Thanks!

Assuming Gordon is not signed obviously

Carson is a for sure start against cincy.
Freeman is more matchup proof than ek/connor.

Connor/Ek is about floor vs ceiling. Connor has a more stable floor imo, but Ek’s upside is MONSTEROUS week 1. If he starts, and keenan allen sits theres a ton of vacated targets. Also Philly likes throwing to his backs. in PPR he could put up a huge line.
So Carson/Freeman. Flex is whether you want a floor or ceiling. I’d shoot for EK personally.

Conner has a better floor and a better ceiling. Don’t overthink this. Play Conner Freeman and Carson.


Who’d you play week one
Matt Breida
They’re my Flex options so who’s best?

My RBs— Sony, Chubb
My WRs— M.Thomas, Boyd

You have to wait and see how things play out and what your opponent does. If you need ceiling, it’s hilton.

If you need floor, one of the other 3. I personally want to see how they use montgomery before i put him in my line up so would be between Duke and Breida.
