Week 15 Lineup: RB Question

QB: Luck
RB: Melvin Gordon*
RB: Marlon Mack
WR: Tyreek Hill
WR: T.Y. Hilton
TE: Eric Ebron
FLEX: Josh Gordon
D/ST: Jacksonville vs. WSH
K: Kaimi Fairbairn

Bench: Justin Jackson, Jordan Wilkins, Colts D/ST, Pats D/ST, Royce Freeman, Mo Alie-Cox.

My original plan was to play both Gordon and Ekeler, now there’s a real chance both won’t play. I have no confidence in Marlon Mack but I probably have to start him anyway. If Gordon plays should I start Gordon+Jackson or Gordon+Mack. I know upside argument would say Mack, but Gordon+Ekeler got over 40 combined points their first game against KC this season, I can see something happening like that again sans Ekeler. I’m also thinking about dumping/benching Fairbairn, weather looks rainy and windy Saturday in the Meadowlands.

The only RB I would pick up on waivers would be Sproles, playing the Rams sounds good, plus he’s probably their top receiving back by now too. Some kickers I like are Josh Lambo, seems like the Jags kick a lot of field goals when they play at home. Matt Bryant plays at home in the dome against Arizona too.

Probably dropping the Colts D/ST: Pick up Sproles? Stash an extra kicker? My lineup is basically set, just the final adjustments. Any advice is welcome, thanks in advance footclan!

Gordon won’t start. Use Justin Jackson.
