What to do with the following players? Luck, Crowell and DJ

Hi Footclan,

I’m 4-3 in a 10 team PPR where 6 make the playoffs. Currently the 5 seed, with all 5 teams below me at 2-5 with the 3rd highest points. I do have an IR spot.

I’ve been stashing David Johnson and Andrew Luck for a potential playoff run, but my upcoming schedule is pretty tough. Do I drop Luck and Johnson for lottery ticket players like Smallwood, Ellington, Kenny Stills, Corey Davis or any of the Jags receivers?

I also have Isaiah Crowell. Is he droppable for the types of players of above? I’m tempted to just hold him for now.

Rest of roster for reference:

QB: Tyrod Taylor, (lost Palmer), Luck
RBs: Doug Martin, Buck Allen (who I started for not much), Bilal Powell, Crowell, Duke Johnson, Marlon Mack
WR: Baldwin, Crabtree, Fitzgerald, Snead, Diggs
TE: Ertz
DST: Seattle (they were dropped on their bye)
K: Lutz
IR: David Johnson

Thanks for the advice!

6 teams make the playoffs? Geez, doesn’t take much. I would keep DJ for sure on your IR, and I think I would keep Luck for at least another week or two and see what happens. Crowell to me is a drop. I would rather have Smallwood than Crowell

Get rid of luck… his end of season schedule is tough. and hes not a sure fire starter as of this point…

id say pick up Smallwood with that drop.
try trading Fitz and another guy for a better WR.
