Flex Jordan Howard or Cooper kupp in hppr 12 team league. Also playing Julian Edelman in wr3 so I could do both and bench Edelman.
I think i would do your latter assessment, benching edleman and starting the other 2, but it is VERY close and a tough decision.
Edleman is one of Tom’s favorite targets, in a game that will more than likely be a shootout. He can be a PPR machine, but he’s more of a stick mover than a yards guy
Denver was just shredded BY THE FREAKING JETS! so that makes me believe that Kupp could have an excellent game as well. Only downside to Kupp is that Denver might get down early and the Rams turn to the run game to churn out the clock.
Howard is playing Miami that are checks stats currently ranked 20th in rushing yards allowed to opposing RB’s, and i think the Bear’s run the ball heavily here. I know Mitch had a crazy day slinging the ball the week before his BYE, but i’d need to see that repeatedly before i start think that the bears aren’t a run-first team.
