As of right now, the only player I’m 100% starting is Julio Jones. Dude is an absolute stud. For the rest of my lineup, this is my thought process:
WR2: DJ Moore (He’s been consistently producing with Kyle Allen all year, so I think a game where Will Grier will want to prove himself and throw the ball a decent amount will give Moore a target share consistent to that of which he’s received all year. Plus, CMC requires so much attention from the opposing defenses that Moore is bound to continue receiving targets).
RB1: Leonard Fournette (He’s been struggling as of late, but he continues to see volume in both the run and passing game, something I can’t really look the other way on, especially since I’m one of those people that will almost always take a consistent floor over high ceiling).
RB2: Marlon Mack (The matchup is too strong in this game. Plus, game script is more likely to favor him in this game than his previous two. I’m fully expecting him to receive more volume in this matchup too, hopefully at least 16 carries and a TD somewhere in there).
Flex: Miles Sanders (It’s clear he’s going to need to be heavily involved in Philadelphia’s offense in order to beat Dallas this week. He’s been fantastic, and with the receiving core shaken up, you know he’s going to get some action in the receiving game too).
I am heavily considering Courtland Sutton for the Flex position this week too because he literally is Denver’s receiving corps right now. He’s too good and consistent not to at least get adequately involved in the offense. I may take Sanders out and put Sutton in if Jordan Howard returns, but even then I’m not entirely sure if Howard will hinder Sanders’ production that much (if at all) with how well Sanders has played recently.
AJ Brown is amazing, but the matchup this week scares me a little bit. New Orleans is a really big obstacle for Tennessee, and I do believe he will struggle a bit in this matchup.
Raheem Mostert just has a more difficult matchup than most other players I mentioned. Plus, even though he’s the clear lead back, it’s still a 3 RB committee at the end of the day. Volume is always something to be concerned over.
Le’Veon Bell has probably the toughest matchup out of everyone mentioned, and he hasn’t really been converting his volume to efficient production (even though this revenge game makes him extremely tempting).
Kenny Golladay and Mike Williams both have great matchups, but also come with a bit more risk than my other options.
Sorry for the long rant. I appreciate anyone that takes the time to read and respond to this though!
