Collins or Ekler


#1

Here is my lineup and bench in .5 PPR league. Any advice on whom I should move into starting or flex?

QB Drew Brees
RB E Elliott
RB Dalvin Cook
WR Kenny Stills
WR Amari Cooper
TE Z Ertz
FLX TJ Yeldon
FLX Austin Ekler

Bench Devante Adams
Bench Cam Newoton
Bench Alex Collins
Bench Robby Anderson
Bench Kerryon Johnson
Bench SAmmy Watkins
Bench Carlos Hyde

Any advice?

Wow thats kinda tough. It wouldnt be normally but I feel like you have to leave that spot open tonight because devante adams would be the play but you dont know his status right now.

I feel like you can get away with flexing ekler if you really have to but I would definitely consider robby anderson for an upside play if you need it

I’d start Collins tonight. Yeldon only has any value if Fournette is out. Personally I’m not convinced Ekeler has any fantasy value at all, I think the coaching staff was just taking advantage of a very specific matchup in the last game but usually he will just be a change of pace back. Since both Yeldon/Ekeler are questionable starts I think Collins is a must start.

If Devante Adams ends up being health I’d just swap him in for Amari Cooper (I’m admittedly not on the Cooper bandwagon.)
