10-team PPR. Taking on last years Champ (so he has CMC is broken on his bench). I have no injuries, so this is my chance to take him down.
QB: Cam Newton @KC
RB: Josh Jacobs vs Buf
RB: Nick Chubb @Dal
WR: Calvin Ridley @GB
WR: Odell Beckham @Dal
TE: Hayden Hurst @GB
Flex: Mike Davis vs Ari
Flex: N’Keal Harry @KC
His bench has no one really worth starting over any of them except Tyler Boyd vs Jax
QB: Dak Prescott vs Cle
RB: Kenyan Drake @Car
RB: Clyde Edwards-Helaire vs NE
WR: Robert Woods vs NYG
WR: Cooper Kupp vs NYG
TE: Noah Fant @NYJ
Flex: James Robinson @Cin
Flex: Kenny Golladay vs NO
DJ “Get Your Sh*t Together NOW” Moore vs Ari
David Johnson vs Min
Mike Gesicki vs Sea
No one else I’d consider starting.
My issue is that I worry Woods/Kupp, while a potent combo, are going up against a team so awful that they won’t even need to be used much. This could be the Henderson Show for the Rams. But if I don’t start both, which one DO I start???
DJ Moore is starting to piss me off. I don’t tolerate “crap shoots” from “WR1s.” That’s why he’s currently on the bench. If you can change my mind, feel free to try, but WR1’s put up double-digit points WEEK IN/WEEK OUT.
David Johnson is interesting. He could have a great week. But he hasn’t had more than 15 total touches in a game yet and Bill O’brien is a moron, apparently, who trades a top WR for a RB and then doesn’t utilize said RB.
I think Fant over Gesicki is the safe option here. Again, change my mind.
I also question starting Golladay vs a top 2 def vs WR’s, but he also could be targeted a lot in a potential shoot-out.
I know I’ve set myself up well and this seems like a “oh my wallet is too small for all these 100’s” question, but I really want to beat this guy and start 4-0.
